The Full BBS Documentary Interviews are Going Online —

This year, the full 250 hours of interviews I conducted for the BBS Documentary are going online at the Internet Archive. There’s already a collection of them up, from when I first set out to do this. Called “The BBS Documentary Archive“, it’s currently 32 items from various interviews, including a few clip farms and […]

4 Months! —

It’s been 4 months since my last post! That’s one busy little Jason summer, to be sure. Obviously, I’m still around, so no heart attack lingering or problems. My doctor told me that my heart is basically healed, and he wants more exercise out of me. My diet’s continued to be lots of whole foods, […]

A Lot of Doing —

If you follow this weblog, you saw there was a pause of a couple months. I’ve been busy! Better to do than to talk about doing. A flood of posts are coming – they reflect accomplishments and thoughts of the last period of time, so don’t be freaked out as they pop up in your […]

In Realtime: Day 2 Felt Like Week 4 —

This time, I’m sitting in my car, & I don’t feel broken, simply renewed. It’s ten o’clock, and we probably have a couple more hours to go. What we are trying to do is ensure that everything is in a box that is going out. Then, tomorrow can consist of two things: moving items to […]

In Realtime: We are barely halfway done —

Some members of the art group Monochrom have gotten into the world of movie-making and I think you might just enjoy the living hell out of it. It’s called DIE GSTETTENSAGA. GSTETTENSAGA is the best kind of low-budget filmmaking: science-fiction collides with mythology and political satire, and a landscape both gray and filled with colorful […]

The Flippy Disk Thing —

This is meant to be a quick overview and primer of the flippy disk and disk hardware situation with regards to 5.25″ floppy drives. It is for reference and referral by others for an easy understanding of the issues. Right now, there are tens of thousands of floppy disks out there that were used extensively […]

The Distrust Sphinchter —

I have completed my initial impromptu 10 year survey of the transportation security administration. I was drafted into this wretched task as a side effect of my work with my first documentary. Whereas previously I might travel one or two times a year by plane, I suddenly found myself taking dozens of flights, until I […]

IRAs, or personal investment accounts, are the type of account you establish for your IRA after it has been established. You must also provide a valid Social Security Number to open a Roth IRA. Roth IRAs are the […]
