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 the One Hundred and Second time since September 1995.

METAphorically this 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 March 2004, it is definitely and significantly less impossible now than when I first had the idea 9 years ago, 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 the March Reality Update =   During the first few months of 2004 I was to have been continuing the transformation of the Big Bong Mobile into the ultimate POTplant POT, getting it ready for Mardi Grass , however, there was a crash! Yep, Herb, the Big Bong Mobiles onboard computer suffered a meltdown of the C:\DRIVE caused (I think) by a short circuit in the Motherboard. Thus I have had to scrap the 'grow show' due to total inability to webcast. Herb, as all linear scholars are aware is/was the back up webcating unit for the Nimbin HEMP Bar webshow, as if the death of Herb wasn't bad enough, it gets worse... Little Qwerty sent her last message "found 00475 RAM out of possible 1600" and then she just faded away and thus I wuz rolled all the way back to Mirpazoid, mirpazoid is the name of the pentium 1 webcasting unit that took over from little qwerty late last century, mirpazoid is also the qwerty that launched the webspace and was the qwerty that started off the webcast at 4.20pm on April 20th 2000, Mirpazoid also wove the 2 of the biggest ever mardigrass websites 2000 and 2001. Mirpazoid has no USB ports and can't run the web cam and so next I assembled slowwwboot. Slowwwboot is a pile of Pentium 2 pieces which have to be physically assembled to boot, an unstable pile of pieces that proved to be only just capable of running the webcam for a very short period of time before it also shat itself ... Oh yeah ... Just to top it all off, the canon A5 power shot camera I have been borrowing for the last couple of years also died.

On the bright side, the car component of the Mobile weathered the crash without a scratch, the engine still starts no problem, the clutch is still clutching and the gears are still in the box, just the one flat tyre that needs to be fixed before it can roll into action.

There is more good news, actually there is some VERY VERY GOOD NEWS for March 2004, a new web casting unit has been bartered for, or to be more specific, some brand new Pentium 4 pieces have been sourced; A 2.40 Gig Celeron Chip, 512 RAM and a P4 motherboard with 'onboard' sound, video and networking capabilities.

So as soon as the new qwerty is fully configured I expect to be cranking up the webcam, slapping on a fresh coat of war paint and plant some more seeds into the Plenum Chamber so that the Mobile can fully Cinderella it's way to the Dance and thus, having run out of tug boats and 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



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?
