In the end, it was he who died in the flames." Or so the Conspiracy Media tells us. [Picture showing how What precisely was the nature of the Koresh made his escape] meeting between J.R. "Bob" Dobbs and David Koresh 2 years ago?

I was just wondering, is it ethical to yell ``Branch Davidian'' in a crowded movie theatre? **************************************************************************** Posessed, as I am, by the FIRES of enLIGHTenment, I must Proclaim unto the Five Corners of the Firmament, the Limbic Storm Intensity REVELATION that I just experienced while doing the dishes. WAAAAAAA...HOOOOOOOO!!!! I Shout it from the Rooftops, Scream it from the Ladders, Yell it at the Top of my Lungs while I'm in the back seat of the Holy Police Squad car, and Whisper it to my cellmates while I await my arraignment! SCREW my Arraignment! This is my Enlightenment! I tell you know of the Three Part Partial Cosmology of the Philosopher-King. I say Three-Part because that's how many parts I know of through the Crystal Diamond Bolt of Zero-sum Knowledge placed in my skull by the _Object from Space_! I say partial because I'm sure there's more, and I'll learn about THEM once I gt my head screwed into the fundaMENtal truths of the Three Part Cosmology. I say Cosmology because THESE FORCES RULE the UNIVERSE, or at least this particularly deranged part of it. Here are the Three Parts, that which once reigned over even "BOB," but now vie with him for Power and Dominion. They are: the Object from Space, the Communist Munchkins from the Center of the Earth, and the Fungi from Yoggoth! Eah has his role unto the Cosmos, and each shall be described upon this BBS. Yes, the Revelation is here-- through the beneficience of the Object from Space, flawlessly uploaded thanks to the benevolence of the Communist Munchkins, and posted even while under the watchful Purple Gaze of the Fungi from Yoggoth. So okay, it's still dropping letters when it word-wraps. The Munchkins aren't that slack. The Object from Space is that being which bestows madness upon a select few. The Object is clearly above constraints of good or bad, because, although many receive madness, some go bad, others go good. Mass murderers are the unlucky victims of the Object's Bad Karma. (Well, okay, their victims have it worse.) Those killers who talk or write strangely, like Manson or Jack the Ripper, are obviously touched by the fickle finger of the Object. There is a sick wisdom that may be gleaned here. The Ayatollah Khomeini, trapped in his delusions of power, is but a blind pawn of the Object, which guides him not. Warped visonaries are everywhere. On the other hand, there is much good in the Object, for its madness also gives us the blazing insight and unrestrained joy of pure creative genius. When Chuck Berry does his duckwalk, or when James Brown is onstage, they are receiving the Good side of the Object from Space, and this is Always a Holy Moment. When you see John Belushi doing his Samurai, that is the Object. Sam Kinison's screams come from the Object. George Carlin is a Saint, who has taken the touch of the Object and translated it into continuing rational insight. Epopt Illuminatae of the Object from Space include Little Richard, John Lennon, Salvador Dali, Lenny Bruce, Harlan Ellison, the staff of the 1972-1974 National Lampoon, William Burroughs, Buckminster Fuller, and Edgar Allan Poe. The Communist Munchkins from the Center of the Earth are more commonly knows as gremlins. Sullen imps of the netherworld, it's their job to fuck things up. When Saint John's disks crash, it's the fault of the Munchkins. The Iran-Contra affair was th Munchkins' work. The PTL Club was theirs since 1970. Airplane crashes, hangnails, false alarms at SAC, bacteriological warfare spills, and the Sargeant York tank are all theirs. A truly paranoid element, and it is impossible to trace ANY kind of method to their work. I think they do it because they have fun. The Fungi from Yoggoth is a pale, sickly yellow that reminds one of old, curdled fat. The Fungi from Yoggoth is manifested when an aging, decript system or individual tries to keep power in its hands, and away from the young, vital and intelligent. It's stagnation, pure and simple, the entropic heat-death of the Universe in the face of the ongoing struggle for life. Ronald Reagan, Frank Rizzo, Jerry Falwell, Jesse Helms, Tipper Gore and the PMRC, the staff of the National Review, Norman Podhoretz, and the Central Intelligence Agency are all manifestations of the Fungi from Yoggoth. Your high school principal. In the entertainment world, it's Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Joey Bishop, Buddy Hackett, Joey Heatherton, Sammy Davis, Jr., Jerry Lewis, Bob Hope (especially Bob Hope), Jan Murray and Jack Carter. In short, everyone who wouldn't want to get hit by Robert Crumb's Meatball. The best example of this is the loudspeaker voice at the University City Thriftway, the one that says, 'Choppers, over in our Seafood department, we now sell whale meat, only a dollar forty a can!' Beware the Fungi from Yoggoth, because it can make you part of It. It drains the exuberance and creativity of youth, my friends. It is that which denies you SLACK, and it should be avoided at ALL costs! (A question was raised concerning how exactly this ties in with Brainsucking.) My three part cosmology ties in with brainsucking as follows. The Object from Space bestows upon people the necessary madness to recognize the intelligence-expanding properties of brain sucking. The Communist Munchkins make sure that the equipment you buy to do it fucks up. (I tried using an Electrolux vacuum on a chemistry major once-- yike! I flunked the chem final I had the next day, too.) And the Fungi from Yoggoth will prevent you from sucking the brains of others by telling you LIES! You see, the Fungi from Yoggoth is very clever. First, it will lie to you about the consequences. Then, when you finally try it, it will make sure that the Brain you Suck will have a lower than average intelligence; or, it may be under the influence of th Fungi from Yoggoth! One quick suck of THAT and WHOOSH! there goes all of your youthful vim and vigor, to be replaced by the dull yellow oppression of teh Fungi from Yoggoth. I will attest to the healing properties of select Bob Dylan. I also recommend "Subterranean Homesick Blues," from the same album. As for Bon Jovi, I would either define him as False Object from Space, or an undiscovered part of the cosmology. (Although I lke Springsteen, the same thing applies-- he has no place in the discovered portions of the Cosmology. However, what lies undiscovered may be Good, and he'd definitely fall into that catgory.) Definite rockers from the Object from Space also include Devo, the Sex Pistols, early Clash, Creedence, and Frank Zappa and Captain Beefheart. (Especilally the last two!)

The True Story of Jim Morrison Part One In Which we learn of Dangerous Beings Who try (but fail) to stop Rock'n'Roll The Introduction The moon's crimson light illuminated a ghastly scene. Jim Morrison peered from his hiding place and his stomach got all mushy inside like when you've eaten something really greasy and washed it down with Jolt [TM] or when you've got a real bad crush on somebody and you think 'well, maybe they like me' but you're not sure enough to do anything about it and you're not unsure enough to write them off but in any case really gurgly at the sight in the clearing below. What he saw was this: Three disembodied heads with blood oozing from where their necks should be, wailing and foaming at the mouth and floating about and mouthing old 'Three Stooges' routines, but the most horrible thing about them was that they were the heads of CURLY, SHEMP, and JOE!!! Eight two-headed black goats with glowing red eyes and green hooves. A flying cloud of vomit. Dan Quayle. A red-skinned dwarf with six-inch tusks. The assembled figures were dancing around a giant trout suspended in mid-air in the middle of the clearing. He noticed several nethack ghosts scattered around the clearing. So astounded was he by this insane literary collage that he did not notice when Dan Quayle, who had merely projected his astral form into the clearing as a distraction, hit him over the head with the printout of a month's worth of alt.slack messages from the fall of 1987. When he awoke, six months later, he was on a spaceship bound for Sirius, a pipe in his mouth and an alien computer in his brain. [The gory details follow.
