Reality Update, MAY-2001

webstuff = all sublinks open a new wwwindow.

webgreetings Dear Linear Scholar,

First time here? If so, first thing you need to know is that a Reality Update is something like a monthly status report to MISSION CONTROL and second thing is that I am real glad that you have found you way through the maze to these words.

If this is your first time here then you may feel a bit gypped, I mean the web cam ain't turned on, indeed, I wouldn't blame you for feeling somewhat pissed off.

If this is not your first time here, then you will recognize the words above, as indeed you will come to recognize some of the next words as the necessary preamble to the words - that are in effect- webolution in action  - kinda -sorta.....  any wwway, back to the things that are ;O)--~

Thing is,

The web cam is broken, which means that I need to source a new parallel port web cam from some where.

Thing is,

parallel port web cams are obsolete and hard to find.

Thing is,

That I don't have the $ needed to buy a new web cam, nor enuff $ to buy a used one either come to think of it.

Thing is,

That even if the web cam was working it wouldn't be turned on, because I have been arrested and convicted for the cultivation of the Cannabis Plants that were to have been the focus of the 2001 webshow.

Things is,

That I seem to spend an awful lot of my time working with the Cannabis Law Reform Movement and very little on the BBt-PPP, indeed, most of my focus has been on the microcosm of local Politics Nimbin Style.

Thing is,

that ever since the decision was made to primarily promote Big Bong Burger Bars, the Big Bong Peace Pipe Project has been kinda shoved into the background because building a Big Bong Burger Bar is less impossible in todays political climate than the total impossibility of building a 240 foot -85 meter high- Pot Art icon.


The annual MardiGrass is happening this month and me and little qwerty are plugged into the Nimbin MardiGrass Cyber Studio until it's time to head for the Second Cannabist Internationale and so, an even though not many words in here have changed since last month, the conspiracy to commit a blatant act of wwworld peace continues to click forward at it's usual pace of;

one step forward
two steps back
three steps forward
one step back
Which is one way to say
I'm actively standing still....

Till next month.



P.S. the sound you "might be hearing" is a snippet from The Man in the Dark Sedan by Snakefinger and the Residents.

P.S.2  at least the Y2Kampaign was a wwwonderful year of unarrested cannabis activism, (Click here, here, herehere + here, as wwwell as here, here, here and here,)
