Festival 23 is an interactive celebration of literature and the arts, of theatre, playshops and music inspired by the Discordian movement. It will be an Experience. A ritual for ritual’s sake.
Okay… I lied about last week’s “quitting cab driving” assertion. (Sue me.) It’s just that I can’t seem to shake this martyrdom thing. Besides, surely SOMEONE out there needs a jump star……
In George Orwell’s book “1984” everything people do is recorded by the telescreens. Each unorthodox action is then punished by “joycamps” which is a Newspeak word for “forced labour camps.”
When he opened his eyes, the first thing he saw was an energy saver light bulb dangling from a greasy length of wire about 30 inches from his exposed abdomen. He couldn’t…
I’ve been having some weird sepia-tone dreams this past week. They’ve all involved escaping from one or some other long, drawn-out, violent and bloody urban drama. I don’t know if it’s the…
It’s Wednesday, my day off. But, I still have some taxi business to take care of. You see, a couple weeks ago I made a doctor’s appointment with California Pacific Medical Center;…
