US president scheduling speeches around LOST schedule

obama on lost island

Fans of ABC’s “Lost” can breathe a sigh of relief.

The millions of viewers eagerly waiting to see what happened to Juliet, Jack, and the Swan station at the end of last season’s cliff-hanger no longer have to worry that the answers to their questions will be delayed because of President Obama’s first State of the Union address.

President Obama will not pre-empt the premiere of the show’s final season, set to air on Tuesday Feb. 2, the White House said today.

Difficulty: no giving up.

Hard to write, feet not dextrous, ha. Five senses, five simultaneous inputs. Synthesize three for single output.

Public radio address ? pen in hand, now, foot delicate enough for Braille ? through the aural inputs. Twelve stranded atop house in flood. Restate. Twelve stranded atop house in flood.

Was HST working on a 9/11 expose when he died?

I suppose this sort of speculation was inevitable. If it’s true, I hope we see some of this “hard evidence.”

He’d been working on a story about the World Trade Center attacks and had stumbled across what he felt was hard evidence showing the towers had been brought down not by the airplanes that flew into them but by explosive charges set off in their foundations. ..

Hunter S. Thompson … was indeed working on such a story.

Evolution as a Team Sport

Speaking of Arthur Magazine, here’s Douglas Rushkoff’s first first column for them. Thanks to NWD for the reminder.

There’s a disturbing fundamentalism brewing in the counterculture these days – an aching towards apocalypse as dangerous as that of our counterparts in the reddest of states, and understood just as literally. We are to await the apex of novelty, that singularity when consciousness rises from the chrysalis of matter into a new state, beyond time and maybe even energy. And, of course, only those of us with proper spiritual or psychedelic credentials will be prepared for this inevitability, and make it through the bottleneck at the end of linear history. The rest, well, they finally get their comeuppance.

Jason Louv on Ultra-Culture

Jason talks Generation Hex and ultraculture:

Ultimately you can see the Hex-Effect already happening?the release of the book will only intensify it. is a good example of what I imagined the forms this movement would take initially, and an inspiration at that. The next step is to take this crazy dream into the physical. I believe the Internet really has become another control system?it’s up to us to use it, not the other way around. Because ultimately, if it’s not happening in the streets, than it’s not happening. And I have nothing but boundless faith that it’s happening. You can see it already. The goals of this emergent Ultraculture are simple?a way of living that is self-defined, not imposed; in which compassion is both the path and the destination; in which hopeful action conquers apocalyptic paralysis; and in which “reality” poses no obstruction.


And when it comes to “ultraculture” don’t forget Arthur Magazine.
