First up webstuff = all sublinks open a new w window

webgreetings Dear Linear Scholar,

First time here? If so, first thing you need to know is that we been bumped up at a pause point for a couple of years now, wwwaiting for the Law to change and the next thing you need to knowww is that Big Bong Reality has been Updated Monthly for *at least* the One Hundred and Tenth time since September 1995. ( 9 web years old ;O)--~

Historically speaking, this reality update feature was one of the main clauses written into the contract I signed (with I.R.C.S.A) for the first BigBong website  Clause = Author (that's me) to supply a reality update every 2 weeks for duration of contract (2 years) - which I did, they figured (rightly) that without me to write fresh words, the Big Bong web site wouldn't be a 'proper" website. In late 97 when the contract was finished and I.R.C.S.A decided to step aside, I kept the reality update going and have never missed upgrading this page, which, I suppose makes this one of the longest running blogs on the web, of course, I write way way way more words per month than what you can see in here - most of the heavy duty blogging I do/have done is viewable at the teXt-files, I digress - to illustrate the continuity nightmare that blogging can create when a 'first timer' hits a blog and all the information on display requires prior knowledge. LOL. As all linear scholars will note that this is a new 2nd paragraph!

METAphorically the Big Bong web construct can be likened to a solar powered space craft, each sail is made of <html> shaped in such a way so as to powwwer the web construct through cyber space, kinda like a sailing ship through the ocean. Since powering up the webcam can be likened to firing up the 'prime thruster' of a rocket ship and since the BBt-PPP Cyber Capsule was designed to only light up the prime thruster at the start of construction and since there are so many sails powwwering the BBt-PPP, it has made sense to let the 'good ole' BBt-PPP Cyber Capsule voyage blurbingly along its eccentric tangent towards materialization at a future point in space and time whilst I went else web to construct other smaller more maneuverable constructs powwwered almost entirely by web cam imagery, portals originally designed as tug boats for the BBt-PPP which were designed to morph into 'retro rockets' with the passing of time.

Thus you know some of the wwwhy why this page morphed into an elseweb portal page over the last few trips round the sun, a book markable sign post page that is never more than a "mouse click" away from wwwhere-ever the wwwords are being wwwoven in the now.

Thing is, that I never set out to become a Big Bong builder or a Cannabis Law Reform Activist, I set out to become a writer and as you can imagine dear linear scholar, after such a long time of not being able to manifest all of the myriad requirements that obstacle me in reality you would think I would be some what discouraged, not so, I mean, I knew from the instant that I had the idea that actually building Bongzilla (my nick name for the Big Bong Peace Pipe) was going to be somewhere the other side of highly impossible.

Thing is, I am not discouraged, because no matter how impossible building a 420 foot high Big Bong Peace Pipe looks in November of 2004, it is definitely and significantly less impossible now than when I first had the idea on the 29th of June 1994, not to mention the fact that the writer/artist in me has had plenty of outlet weaving what amounts to an entire sector of cyber space, which is why, when all is said and done, I am not discouraged by Bongzilla being bumped up at this pause point, not when there is so much happening in the real world of my highly subjective reality ;O)--~

Anyhow, getting finally to the "weblog" component of this Novemeber Reality Update =  Couple of Big things have happened lately, firstly the "Big Bong Peace Pipe" was featured on Australian national television in September as part of a Documentary of Big things and secondly - and far more importantly, BIGBONG.ORG was created. The creation of a 'hub zone' like BigBong.org will evolve into was long over due, mostly because I kept putting it off due to the fact that >> slipping back into the metaphor of a sailing ship >> I dint really feel like checking the stitching on every sail, indeed, I am still finding flawwws and holes every where I check and so I think I will be scurrying along the 'rat lines' for a few months yet. Anyway the restart of Earths only  webcam focused on the growth of  illegal outdoor cannabis is getting closer - delayed mostly by the wwworkload induced by the creation / construction of BIGBONG.ORG >> and thus >> having run out of stuff to link to for this month, the only thing left to tell you at this point in cyber space and time dear linear scholar - besides keep your eyes on the web cam page - is ... maybe I'll catch you in the BBt-PPP Chat Room...

till next

peace

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.S Did you hear about the arrest for the cultivation of the Cannabis Plants that were to have been the focus of the 2001 webshow?
