from Beyond added 29 July 2000
I was about to say "Now I've heard everything", but that
would obviously be untrue as we now have a way to hear songs written
by dead people after they die. This raises some interesting legal
questions. Some years ago I wrote a book and I wanted to open it
with a few words from John Lennon's Imagine but Michael Jackson
(who owns John's words) would not give permission. So what is Whacko
Jacko going to do about this site? Does he own the songs here too?
Linda Polley has a whole CD full of Lennon songs to put out as soon
as she finds a producer, and I am looking forward to her forthcoming
tour with Buddy Holly, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis.
Now, there's a band for you. Giuseppe Verdi will produce the souvenir
CD and Picasso's doing the t-shirts.

in the picture looks like a rocker. There is nobody on it. This
can only mean that someone is off his rocker. The first question
is: "Who"? And what is the mystery of the fifty-billion
dollar fold-out mansion? Is it where you store all the furniture?

I was never good at history when I was at
school. I put that down to the sorts of books I had to read. Dry,
dusty tomes full of stories that didn't sound quite right about
unlikely people and places. All that talk about kings and queens,
peasants and nobles, Greeks and Romans, presidents and prime ministers,
exploration and exploitation, revolutions, evolutions, wars, whores,
monks, drunks, politics and knavish tricks. None of it made any
sense. It wasn't until I came across this work that I understood
why I had been so unsatisfied. Here for the first time I saw the
context for all that history. A masterpiece.
While you are
there, don't forget to check out the voyages of Ingo Swann who explored
Jupiter, among other places. I'm convinced. And to think that all
those old history books talked about people like James Cook and
Ferdinand Magellan as if they were real explorers. Anybody can find
Australia, New Zealand and Hawaii or a way to sail around the world,
but what are these "achievements" compared to surveying
This site was moved from one free hosting service to another
but some of the links still point to the old domain name,
so navigation can be a bit confusing and fraught with 404s.
Perhaps this was a way of preserving history.

Loon of the Month
might look like a certainty for Loon of the Month as he
seems to believe anything (provided that some scientist
doesn't believe it), but he disqualified himself by flattering
me on a public mailing list. I am not for sale (well, I
probably am, but he didn't offer enough). Linda Polley was
a strong runner because, by channelling John Lennon, she
has helped me get revenge on Michael Jackson. I hope Jacko
turns green (if it's a colour he hasn't used already).
The winner is the Pentagrammation Rituals, just because
I can't figure out what is going on there but there seems
to be a loon and some quintessence and everyone is having
such a good time.
Rituals added 22 July 2000
This site would have been listed here anyway, just because
it is about a play which has a character called "The
Loon" and another one called "The Alchemist"
who seems to be looking for his quintessence. Apart from
that, I have no idea what it is about. There are lots of
people in fancy dress who seem to be doing something. There
are other people in fancy dress who seem to be having things
done to them. There are people with no dress behaving in
ways which would probably cause your maiden aunt to chew
the top off a bottle of Jim Beam. There are people with
strange headdresses on. Thankfully, there are no frogs or
unicorns. The picture at right is the most understandable
thing on the site, and it means about as much as the texture
on a taco.
[Warning: there are a couple of images on this site
which may really send your maiden aunt into the vapours.
Make her look with her eyes closed. Actually, this site
might offend everyone. It could be the most outrageous piece
of blasphemy (with a hint of pornography) on the 'net, or
it could just be the work of a pack of drunken fruitcakes
with a camera and too much time on their hands. You be the
judge. I'm off to sacrifice a platypus and eat its spleen.]

Do you want a new job? Sick of the
boss and the office politics and the commute each way each day?
Here's your chance at a whole new career as a Past Life Therapist.
This means you can take people back into their past lives to see
what causes their problems today. But wait, there's more! You can
also learn how to become a Psychic Counselor, so you can fix up
people's spirits. (I knew a bartender once who could fix real good
spirits.) But wait, there's more (and a set of steak knives). You
can even take on that highly-in-demand speciality, ET Abduction
Counseling, and help people put their lives back together after
they get back from the probatorium.
[There is a really strong warning on this site about using
any words or graphics from it. The ETs made me do it. I must need
Earth Is Not Moving added 15 July 2000
I often mention popular songs here because the words of the classics
reflect the zeitgeist. That is what makes them both popular and
classics. Sometimes, however, even the best lyricists can get it
wrong. An example is "That Old Black Magic" which has
been recorded by everyone who has ever entered a recording studio
(although I hope to die before I hear the Rolling Stones version).
Where Johnny Mercer missed was when he wrote "round and
round I go, in a spin, lovin' that spin that I'm in" because,
as one look at this site will show, we are not spinning anywhere
but are just hanging about in space with everything going on about
A few more planets have been discovered since the illustration

but I assume he has added Pluto, Neptune and Uranus and updated
his model and calculations since then.

laughed at Galileo". Richard Milton does not actually say these
words, but he shows every sign of believing in the principle. Apparently
lots of loony ideas should be given careful consideration because
some good ideas of the past took some time to become accepted and
some were even declared nonsense by people who should have known
better (or who, in many cases, had no access to what we know today).
I had to think about that for a minute, but then it became clear
to me - in the past some scientists were right but other scientists
said they were wrong and some were wrong when they said others were
wrong therefore today some scientists are right because other scientists
say they are wrong and other scientists are wrong because they say
the first lot are wrong. And the first law of thermodynamics is
not universal constitutional law and can be overturned at any time
without us all having to vote on it because it is just a precedent
and tradition. And I know cold fusion works because it is winter
here and the fuse just blew and my heater stopped working and I
am cold. Perhaps my cat will perform an act of Spontaneous Feline
Combustion and warm the place up.
Nephilim Resistance Task Force added 8
It always pays to be ready for the future.
Here's an organisation which is getting ready to defend us from
the Nephilim, or giants, who have been around since Adam and Eve
started creative gardening and herpetology. You see, everyone thought
that the giants who were around in those days had gone away, but
the NRTF knows that they have just been hiding, biding their time
until the appointed day and hour when they will arise from wherever
they are and we will be thrown into pitched battle with these spawns
of evil. The battles will be furious and blood will run like rivers.
Respect will be restored to the practitioners of the ancient arts,
men will again be able to say proudly to their sons: "I am
a slayer", and women will be able to again openly offer fruit
to their lovers. Snakes will walk again with pride.
Pride added 8 July 2000
Would it be tasteless of me to draw attention to an organisation
called "Mad Pride" who have modelled themselves on Gay
Pride and want to have street marches and demonstrations and awareness-rasing
functions? Of course it would be tasteless, but I have decided to
place all responsibility onto you, the viewer. I am simply a conduit,
and the choice is yours as to whether you wish to avail yourself
of what is on offer. I am non-judgemental, and will not think any
less of you if you click on the link. In any case, today is the
first day of Mad Pride Week. I know that it is unusual to start
one of those "XYZ Weeks" on a Saturday, but that decision
fits the concept.
[Note to potential complainers: Someone close
to me has a psychiatric disorder. She wants to get better and thinks
that marching for mad rights is an offensive expression that I am
surprised she knows at her age.]
