I looked in my files and found another item of interest. This file is
called High Weirdness by Email, and is what it sounds like. It's also 2
years old, so some of the addresses may not work. You might want to
explore. There must be somewhere a more recent version of this file, but I
couldn't find it.
Keep a still upper forehead.

OK, here it is, High Weirdness by Email v1.1. This version is semi-organized
by the nature of the medium: ezine, ftp site, etc. The next version (whenever
*that* is) will probably be organized by topic (UFO, zine reviews, fringe
science, etc etc). For now I just want to get this out of my home directory
on Nyx before it gets purged for me. Send me errata, complaints, suggestions,
submissions, etc at mporter@nyx.cs.du.edu. Thanks to everyone who submitted
stuff, and special thanks to thales@netcom.com and munro@cs.uq.oz.au for
saving intermediate drafts from extinction. HWbE is available via ftp from
ftp.css.itd.umich.edu (/poli/Resources/weirdness) and from somewhere in
The Site Which Must Not Be Named (see first entry, FTP SITES). These are
the sections:
OBLIGATORY HORRIBLE OMISSION: Church of Spam - where are you? Lost the
newsletter *and* the mailing list while trying to clean up here!
Some last-minute additions: pdm@ucrmath.ucr.edu maintains an
"Electronic/Industrial/Etc zines list" (note, those are snail-mail zies)
which has just been posted to alt.zines, alt.industrial and
rec.music.industrial; and spingo@panix.com wants you to send him your
ezine, I think for his BBS.

It starts mid-November and continues for about a month. Here's an extract
from the blurb:

>"Navigating the Internet: An Interactive Workshop" is intended for
>new or infrequent users of the network of networks called the
>Internet. it is designed to give an overview of several operating
>systems used on the Internet and to give examples of the resources
>available over the Internet.
>The only requirement is that the user have access to the Internet and
>can read basic e-mail. UNIX, VMS, and VM will be the primary operating
>systems covered in the workshop.
>Participants will be sent instructions by e-mail.
>A BITNET listserv provided by the University at Buffalo will be
>used for interactive answering of questions and solving problems with
>additional help by e-mail.

home of luigi - bob drake - editor/assembler of TapRoot, "a quarterly
publication of Independent, Underground, and Experimental language-centred
arts..." who have put out over 40 collections of such - now TapRoot is
experimentally going online with a collection of zine reviews. i have seen
issue #0, part 1, which contains those reviews; i am not a zine person
myself (i have my hands full with what i'm getting over the net!!) but
some of the stuff reviewed looked really interesting. there's also reviews
of poetry chapbooks (?) (unseen) and future issues will include mailart
sections. [speaking of which, is there such a thing as internet mailart
yet?] send a request and luigi-bob will mail you with whatever he has.
worth getting. AND SAY YOU LIKED IT IF YOU DID (same applies to ALL these
people); feedback is essential at this stage of development.

I am hereby issuing a call for *someone* to archive John Baez's expository
postings from sci.math and sci.physics. IMHO they deserve it. I issue this

do it. Contact him at jbaez@riesz.mit.edu (The Site Which Must Not Be Named)

comments by Anon of Ibid:
* This site has lots of Crowley texts and gifs, including the
*complete* texts of the Book of Lies, Book of the Law, Book 4,
Magick in Theory and Practice, Magick Without Tears, and some
(or all) copies of the Equinox. (Crowley's magickal journal/
zine/publication type thing) All this stuff is in directory
/pub/magick/incoming. But there's lots more than Crowley stuff.
Check this site out.
[Back to me:]
Also worth perusing are wilson.on.cis, an online conference with RAWilson as
guest participant, and cybercraft, which contains an exposition of Leary's
8-circuit model. ALSO, copies of the Equinox are retailing where I live
for about $700 (for 10 vols.) at present. You could probably make yourself
same money, and do yourself a favor, and violate some sort of copyright law
by printing copies of the Equinox based on the slopoke material.
In fact the whole slopoke site is just one of the best. They have an old
alt.slack archive (old*slack!), extensive Notes on Kabbala that you won't
find anywhere else, the Principia, and *best of all*: in /pub/incoming they
have the up-to-date version of the Scriptures of V\R (see above). Praise

NASA Pics Sites
NOTE: the material at these sites is exceedingly voluminous;
I'd strongly suggest just getting the CD-ROMs instead of attempting
to transfer scores of gigabytes of pix and other material.
To access the online catalog of NASA material, CD-ROMS, et cetera:
telnet nssdca.gsfc.nasa.gov
login as "NODIS"
no password

Anonymous ftp sites (five):
nssdca.gsfc.nasa.gov []
This is a VAX/VMS box, so you must ftp-login as "anonymous". To get
a dir listing into a file on your system:
ftp> dir [...] file_on_your_system
lots of stuff, including Aliens of all colors, and UFO pix (though this
seems to mirror a lot of what's at phoenix.oulu.fi and has some
additional material).
online copies of what appears to be all NASA's CD-ROMs, and lots of
GIFs, *.img and *.jpg from most (all?) space missions since Apollo.
dunno; it appears to be down today (Saturday, 18-July-1992).

I dunno if it counts but we have a really vocal, extreme right-wing
paranoid fundamentalist Christian who got a Bboard named after him out
here at CMU. He frequently posts more than four posts in a day and we
already have somebody at MIT mocking the guy and it may be a national
thing because this guy is 100% all-American Christian fundie right wing
Anyway, the Bboard is assocs.collegerepublicans.intolerant_assholes

He may not be weird enough for this list, but he responds to
EVERYTHING and claims such things as:

One more bbs with some wierdness on it:
yabbs - phred.pc.cc.cmu.edu - login as bbs or telnet to port 8888. We
have some political and hacker oriented stuff on ftp as well. Also,
note that redspread.css.itd.umich.edu also is running a bbs now (using
the same software), so you might want to update your entry.

Two guys here. Judex <Polybenevolent Omni-Father of Truth In Spandex> worships
squids and spreads their "gospel". Your Heinous is a computer fiend and
headbanger extrodinaire. Trade your weirdness for theirs. B}
Judex is also a music and movie trivia buff, and a good source for such.

In Robert Anton Wilson's _Illuminatus! Trilogy_, he describes
a process used by Discordians, Erisians and Anarchists against
governments, corporations and in general, The Establishment.
This process involves sending many letters from different
parts of the country/world and is called Operation Mindfuck.
With the advent of e-mail, Operation Mindfucks are much more
easily coordinated. One such network can be joined by e-mailing
corleyj@gas.uug.arizona.edu. Networks are set up around
communal responsibility. Everyone agrees to participate in
everyone else's Mindfuck. If A helps B Fuck the IRS, then when
B wants to Fuck the Department of Defense, A is obliged to help.
Hail Eris! All Hail Discordia!

[there follows a long speculative discussion on fantasy and its
expression in various mediums of communication and interaction, and the
specific possibilities the net offers for "Cyber Ritual". probably best to
look for the original post before you ask to join, IMNSHO!]


telnettable information places:

chop.isca.uiowa.edu - lots and lots of stuff. endless menu selections.
this is something called 'panda', which you probably know more about than
i do

info.cern.ch - a node on the WorldWide Web, an attempt to build up
an online hypertext reference work.

info.rutgers.edu - dictionary/thesaurus/familiar-quotations and a few
other things. call up the 1991 world cia factbook and look at the entry
for 'world'. they have the bible, koran, book of mormon organized so you
can execute keyword / topic searches [any bets on how long it will be
before they have the principia discordia?]

Submission: There is an effort to put all electronic journals, newsletters,
zines, etc up in the Gopher system on the Internet. It can be found on
the University of North Texas Gopher (gopher.unt.edu port 70).

Look at alt.internet.services for more.

Trippy MUSH - 7567 - not a mud/mush/muck/moo fan myself
but this might be the one that gets me addicted. this is a really
interesting place! others that have been recommended to me but which i
have not seen are Cyberion City (michael.ai.mit.edu, dont know port
number) and Global MUSH (lancelot.cif.rochester.edu 4207). read
rec.games.mud if you're interested in this sort of thing

NEWSPOSTING by mail - Once upon a time apparently, you could post
to news by mailing ucbvax.berkeley.edu in the format
and the text of your message would be posted to favourite.newsgroup. That
service isn't working any more, *but* someone told me that the same thing
can now be done through somewhere.cc.utexas.edu (I think). This is part of
the info that was lost when my mailbox was wiped.

Has anyone been collecting .sigs? Perhaps I should ask on alt.fan.warlord.
But what I *would* like to collect are, not necessarily inane .sigs, or .sigs
containing 20 lines of ascii art surrounded by a screen's-worth of
whitespace, but something very specific: .sig's which show the writer's
involvement in some SubGenius/Discordian/Free-Religion. It might be the
closest thing we could get to an online directory of such groups
reachable over the net. However, I have not embarked on such a search
myself; I have simply idly appended a .sig every so often to my
collection. Perhaps someone else wants to comb Usenet News for more.
