So just what is the deal with those alien stickers with the
cross on them, that are popping up all over the place? The main point is
that if any "aliens" are guilty of doing even half of the bad stuff that
some people say, they certainly shouldn't be glorified. Instead of cute
little humanoids like ET or "Close Encounters", maybe "Independence Day"
is a bit closer to what a real first contact would be like. And, instead
of bring messages of universal peace and love, creatures with that level
of technological ability could just as easily conduct a smash-and-grab
operation with impunity. Even the "anti"-UFO hucksterism is a bit too
much, too. When you think of slanty alien faces, JUST SAY NO!

The weirdest bulldada is often that which was once actually taken deadly seriously!
Easily on the level of the "Dr. Strangelove" movie with Peter Sellers,
this is all actual 50s cold-war nuclear propaganda, in its own words.
Save the Planet! Kill Yourself!!!
suicide - abortion - cannibalism - sodomy
Cyber-Sex Toys - tons of rubber

Committe for the Scientific Investigation of
Claims of the Paranormal -
Some people claim that they deify "science" at the expense of spirituality,
whatever in hell that is. Others claim that their continuous, extensive,
and thorough debunking of supernatural claims doesn't mean that it doesn't
exist. But whatever sour grapes are being thrown their way, they *are* the
only cops on the "psychic/supernatural/paranormal" beat, and their bullshit
detectors uncover *tons* of frauds and phonies.
Space Ghost is now on the web.
Once, he was a super-hero, saving the galaxy, and now he's a smart-ass
talk-show host, with SLACK! Visit the set of Coast to Coast, and be
interviewed by Space Ghost on-line! Be prepared, though, as you know,
he's even worse than Letterman at completely abusing the guests. Also,
there's Zorak and Moltar's quarters, a huckster shop for SG t-shirts and
other expensive trinkets, plus lots more. Big site with lots of graphics

Lurker's Guide to
Babylon 5 - Tons of great B5 info, including complete episode list,
plots and anlaysis, with J. Michael Stracyzinski's own comments, nicely
arranged and cross-referenced. Includes notes on the making of B5, the
setting, characters, and stations.

Unfortunately, humorless corporate goons have forever silenced the original
Dysfunctional Family Circus site- a hilarious parody of an sad,
unfunny comic thats so bland and sappy that it makes you want to puke.
However, the concept remains, in a few private efforts, like
this one, and
Worship Page!! - Remember those awful ads for "sea monkeys", who would build all sorts
of neat castles, raise families, and perform tricks for you, all in your
fishtank? Here's the real scoop on those critters, from kitsch to religion:
Advocates for Self-Government -
purveyors of the radical notion that WE DON'T NEED a big government and
tons of police to take care of us- that we are perfectly capable of taking
care of ourselves. Let the police chase criminals for a change. Lots of
products for libertarian outreach, with books, tapes, but mostly, mass
quantities of the World's Smallest Political Quiz.
Eros Comics - Probably one of the
biggest distributors of adult comics, with large selections of adult
comics, with tons of fetish and bondage titles. Great source for Cherry,
Bondage Fairies, Young Witches, Carnal Comics, and tons of other titles-
erotic manga also. 800-657-1100
PO Box 25070, Seattle WA 98125
Infiltration - A zine about going into places where you're not
supposed to go. Tales of urban explorers and their experiences in college
steam tunnels, secret subway stations, "exclusive" hotels, and similar
places. This gives extensive maps, entrances, extensive details and
pictures of some of the most famous explorations. Also check out
alt.colleges.tunnels and the
official College Steam Tunnel site at
http://members.tripod.com/~tunnels/tunnels.html. I've been all through
the NCSU tunnels; nearly every big school has them, and it's a ton of fun
to go exploring (just don't get caught). It's a good source of stealth
and social engineering skills.
Laissez Faire Books - Tons of books for freedom-lovers, the special
feature being "The Tax Revolts that Built America" by Charles Adams. This
selection of books takes on the government in every issue, from the "War on
Drugs" to taxes, regulation, social-engineering laws, scams and frauds of
every description, jack-booted thugs, and much more. From economics to
education to personal liberty, this a great selection of books in defense of
complete and total liberty. 938 Howard St. #202, San Francisco CA 94103
Liberty Tree - Great selection of pro-liberty books, with
from classics by Thomas Jefferson and other Founders to today's Walter
Williams, Harry Browne and more.
Opulence! - Official zine of the WEFest!, a week-long Indie rock festival
with over 40 bands from around the country, zines, films, cartoons, and
home-brew beer. Don't miss this great event, May 21-27 in the downtown
historic (party) district in Wilmington NC. Only $15 admission for the
whole week. They also put out sampler tapes with tons of independent
bands- $3 each or blank w/$1 postage. Opulence Records, PO Box 2071,
Wilmington NC 28402-2071.
Very wild, nothing-sacred magazine. Very much music-oriented with
tons of ads and interviews, but also filled with articles on just about
anything. Unfortunately, Popsmear closed in 1999
Prometheus Books - Now listing the complete list of
books in print, this is a great source for the skeptic/freethinker. No
issue is too hot to handle, whether its questioning UFO claims, assisted
suicide, school prayer, psychics, big government, pornography, etc. Hundreds
of titles on philsophy, religion, social issues, science, and more. Special
on David Suzuki's new book, "The Sacred Balance". 50 John Glenn Dr.,
Amherst, NY 14228-2197
Stuck In Traffic - #28 - Current events, cultural phenomena, and true
true stories, told from Stacy Powers' first-person perspective. There's
deeper meaning and principles behind nearly everything, in a zen-sorta way;
you just need to be able to see it. And, although we might see *some*
things in a different perspective (I was far less "charitable" in my
opinions of the bums targetting DragonCon), we do agree on a whole lot.
Whether its watching the mayor argue with a K-mart employee, or the recent
UFO church in Garland TX, there's often more angles to a story or situation
than might appear, and Stacy lays it out. Paper zine is $2, $10/yr,

SWIFT - Vol. 2 No. 1 - Newsletter of the
James Randi Educational Foundation.
Randi, the famous magician, is following in Harry Houdini's footsteps by
exposing the "paranormal" crowd as the outright frauds that are. Whereas
scientists can and have been fooled by intentional illusions, Randi tests
them according to the claims that the dowsers/remote viewers/ESP people
themselves make, but also introduces controls and safeguards which prevent
them from cheating. And when prevented from cheating, they always fail- it
doesn't take a rocket scientist to make the obvious conclusion from that.
Overall, this is a no-nonsense expose of outright fraud, and long overdue.

ULC News - Fall 97 - News from the
Universal Life Church, possibly the
most "do it yourself" laid-back organization that can still, however
considered a religion. Actually, ordained ministers (free for the asking)
are prefectly free to follow their own path as long as they promise to do
what's "right" and to support religious freedom in general. And, its 100%
legal too- ULC ministers can legally perform weddings and other ceremonies
and enjoy all the advantages of clergy of the "mainstream" religions. In a
way, its a acknowledges that all such stuffy degrees and titles are essentially
arbitrary- and when just about *everyone* is officially "ordained" it'll go
a long way toward taking away the imagined "special" status that so many
priests use as a moral billy-club. Get ordained online!
Universal Life Church, 601 3rd St., Modesto, CA 95351
The White Dot - Issue #6 - All about the pitfalls of too much TV, and the
benefits to be gained from just totally going cold turkey and giving it
up entirely. Although I'm personally not quite ready to give up on
Babylon 5 and South Park, there's a lot of great points in here, on not
only the "standard" couch-potato TV addiction, but also the way that TVs
and videos are popping up everywhere, from airport terminals to classrooms
to supermarkets, and its much more of mind-numbing, pacify-and-buy effect
than true education. From the sleaze of commercial & cable TV, to the
total TV-free lifestyle, there's a lot to think about in here. Not
available in video form. $8/4 issues - The White Dot, PO Box 577257
Chicago, IL 60657-7257
Vision Temple - Ask for their wonderful products; especially their own
unique tape service. (I think most of this is probably also available
through MoFo) New tapes include Octavios "#9701", from the secret former
guitarist for Chewing Foil. Also, some really hardcore experimental
Nghe and his evil cohorts are always on the prowl. They can fuck up your life
BEFORE X-day. What good is having a membership to climb aboard the saucers if
you get killed in a car crash 3 days before X-day?
SCIENTIFIC FACT: Papa Joe Mama's Holy Icons reduced the chance of
death by Nghe by 61%.
Yes, you get better survival odds for one low, low price- But wait! That's not
all! You also get a real genuine subgenius work of art AND a 5 x 7"
solid wood frame to hold it, tossed in for free!
What kind of artwork? What kind would you EXPECT from the Church of the
Subgenius? Artwork that makes your SKIN CRAWL. Bob's head in a box, salivating
spiders, hideous aliens... all straight from the bleeding brain of Bob's most
hateful preacher: The Rev. Papa Joe Mama.
But you're probably still unconvinced. Then go to the
Papa Joe Mama's Gallery of Horror Homepage and view these shocking
works of religious relevance for
yourself. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and most of all, you'll blow your hard
earned cash. But so what? It's for a good cause: Welfare of Bob's holy
preachers (and the rest of the world, too).
Libertarian e-book of the month:
THE BUREAUCRAT AND THE MATRIARCH:
QUEST FOR A SURVIVAL FAMILY
--By Jack Schwartz
An interesting novel about a guy who sets sucked into a bureaucrat job,
and the effect it has on his life. One way out is a complete change
out of it and into a matriarchial relationship. Interesting stuff;
the Promise Keepers would probably hate it.
Does the government of a "free" society have the right to persecute
people for their own personal choices, even for such controversial things
such as drug use, prostitution, gambling, overeating, etc? Not so, according
to Peter McWilliams' _Ain't Nobody's Business If You Do_, subtitled "The
Absurdity of Consensual Crimes in a Free Society".
And the amount of money that taxpayers must fork out for the sake of a
bunch of self-appointed moral busybodies adds up to literally thousands of
dollars per year, not to mention the outright trashing of the Bill of Rights
under the inevitable police state required to make sure you're being "good".
This book is now online in HTML form, with devastating treatises against
"victimless-crime" laws, as well as some of his other books, at:
Read about how Peter McWilliams was been jailed on bogus "trafficking"
charges and denied his life-sustaining, anti-AIDS drugs, and how he
died in misery. This is how our loving government "protects" us.
Apparently, what our "government" can't answer with logical argument,
they'll simply wipe out. Check this page for details!
The Bran Flakes
Home of Rev. Otis F. Odder, Subgenius/Euthanasian/Universal Mooistic
Minister Diagnostic Discordian Pope of the 23rd Quadrant
(formerly MOFO OUTREACH MINISTRY) - apparently they have morphed into
a strange, indescribable band/performance group. See the website for
details, including music samples.
The Jittlovian Repository
Online archives of Mike Jittlov, the Wizard of Speed and Time himself!
Right now, the only thing online is his special collection of weird
fonts for the MacIntosh, but there'll be more- possibly QuickTime
versions of the trailer for his movie, ASCII art, who knows?
As discussed on the Howard Stern show, this site advertises some of the
most strikingly realistic fuck dolls ever made. No blow-up balloons here,
these actually have articulated skeletons, realistic skin & hair, and they
really look lifelike. And, at $4000+ each, you'd have to wonder about
someone with such a total *lack* of a life that this is the only way they
could ever get laid. At least these girls don't whine for money.
People Eating Tasty Animals (PETA)
According to Internic's rules, domain names are handed out first-come,
first serve, and this person grabbed peta.org before the original
organization could. PETA had a shit-fit over this, and because of the
controversy, the "peta.org" domain name is "on hold". Not only that, but
the site itself is a parody and in-your-face total antithesis of what
PETA stands for- with links and info on eating meat, keeping animals as
pets and using them for research, furs, taxidermy, and hunting and fishing.
Naturally, this has attracted quite a bit of threats and hate mail from the
"loving" and "ethical" animal-lovers, who apparently have no problem with
'liberating' animals that could be infected with deadly diseases. This
site is a perfect example of "back at-cha" advocacy on the web.
Teriyakis - "Psychics to Sidekicks" - 6 songs,
somewhat of a psychedelic feel to it. Laid-back, rythmic guitar throughout,
and the first song, "weirdo frontiersmen" particularly good. Lots of varied
sounds and samples too, it's an interesting small album. 10" record/$8 or
$10/CD, available through Priapus, 1723 Illinois, Lawrence KS 66044. They
also produce Hopewell, Hyperspherian and more.
Negativland - "Dispepsi" - In their latest record/project,
they take on the
corporate culture even *more* head-on (with appropriate ways of avoiding the
lawsuits). In examining the Orwellian control campaigns run by corporations
that would result in blood in the streets if governments were found doing the
same (they are), they focus in on the strange world of soft-drink advertising
with a bold new suggestion: everybody in the world knows all they'll ever
need or want to know about the 2 "giants", so why do they continue to spend
untold millions on advertising? Why not experiment with a total moratorium-
which will likely have *no* affect on sales? Great music, satirical brainfood
lyrics, and innovative new sounds and samples. For Negativland info, write:
