And the FBI wants to track your Web trail.
Last night's thought before drifting into sleep; It's important to wonder what the FBI/CIA has done wrong, but a bigger mystery is what have these two ever done right? I pondered it for awhile, came up with nothing. Could be because they are required to keep everything they do secret.....Can anyone provide links to successes of these institutions? Also discovered last night that there are 13 secret agencies operating in the US. All I can think of are FBI, CIA, NSA, and the Secret Service. Can anyone name the others?

PREDICTION FOR KRESKIN:YOUR CAREER IS OVER!
Here's the Kreskin UFO update.(Yeah, there's no e-mail option on his site.) Apparently, he took about 100 people aside from his Vegas stage show, made a few "suggestions", told them they would see 3 UFO's and get a message when he dropped his hanky. So he takes all these chosen people out to the Vegas airport where about a thousand more await the spectacle. Then, at about 10:30 it was suddenly over. A couple of people reported seeing *planes*(it was at the airport), a couple more said they MIGHT have seen a blinking light or two. He dismissed the crowd and dissapeared himself.modeling pic.jpg
So a local news reporter spotted and stopped the old Kreskin and asked him what everyone was supposed to see. This is what he said. "I was demonstrating a technique that could be used by an enemy to fool people into believing." ASSHOLE! All he did was make a few simple hypnotic suggestions!! Alot of people spent alot on money to go out there and be a part of history, and granted. it's their own problem, but this mofo just pulled a very cheap hoax on the entire world and more than likely blew his career to pieces. The problem I have with it is that so many want to believe in such things, myself included, and what he just did was destroy the credibility of future sightings/predictions and sully the hopes of thousands. It's not a very good idea to stomp all over someone's hopes and dreams with such a deception.Fuck that fucking fuck. AB is livid. Anyway, the Bob Lazar interview should be entertaining. Also, someone called AB and said they saw a UFO during Butch's Gutteral Nonsense. Is it there? Will have to watch the news closely to see for myself.
Oh, and Kelly Osbourne did a brilliant job of singing "Papa Don't Preach" considering she's only 17, not a professional singer, and has never sung before an audience before, let alone one that large.

Hahaha.Dubya's Daily Diary.
Sorry about all the paranoid posts lately....I wasn't going to ramble on about this again today (because I fear I am losing the interest of my few regular visitors), but......snipped from MSNBC.com re:Bush's speech tonight;"The White House has stepped up efforts in recent days to shield Bush from criticism that his administration did not do enough to prevent the attacks. Bush?s announcement is designed in part to steal some attention from the congressional hearings, White House officials said.(Pssst. Martial Law is right around the corner.) Update 1:15pm: "Blah blah blah terra blah blah blah nucular blah blah blah gawd bless Murkah." The more I read the links I post here, the more I mourn for this country.Most important was the whisperings of more power for FEMA.(Pssst. Martial Law just got a little closer.)
Repost:GW Bush's skeleton closet.
UnansweredQuestions.org to be launched June 10: "launched by an independent, non-partisan network of citizens concerned about the growing number of issues surrounding September 11th that have yet to be addressed or resolved; and their related public safety and Constitutional implications."
Interesting column:Did The Drug War Claim Another 3,056 Casualties On 9-11?
This too:FBI digs deeper into the Web."I hate to be in a position of telling people 'don't go online and speak' or 'watch what you say,' but you have to take from this that on an arbitrary basis, the FBI is going to be tagging people as terrorists based on what they say online," said Jim Dempsey, deputy director of the Center for Democracy and Technology."
Bush administration hypocritical on terror groups; CNN remains silent. Neither Saudi Arabia nor Israel are included in the list of countries harboring terrorists. Why is that? The hijackers were largely from Saudi Arabia, yet we wage war on Afghanistan. It has been shown (via the "smoking gun" article) that these men trained in Saudi Arabia and THE USA, NOT Afghanistan. There are some al-Qaeda there, sure, but there are also al-Qaeda still in the USA and just about every other country. The answer is obvious. We already have Saudi oil. We want that Caspian Sea pipeline. Early 2001 negotiations with the Taliban in this regard failed, so they were punished under the excuse that they were harboring terrorists. The fact that Saudi Arabia is NEVER implicated for harboring/training terrorists is proof enough the Bush is a liar and a hypocrite.Disturbingly ironic is the fact the man said to be the architect of the 9/11 attack is from KUWAIT.
I should mention that if it turns out that Bush is completely innocent regarding the events of 9/11, I will gladly consume my tinfoil hat. For now I will carefully place it back in it's tinfoil cozy.

Funniest thing I saw last night: Andy Dick and Tom Green switch personalities and dress up as each other.
I couldn't tell which one was which, it was that good.Except Green has a weak chin and Dick has, well, a dick for chin. Fuckin hilarious. Also intersting but not suprising is the revelation that Kimmel and Corrolla are the brains behind Crank Yankers, who say that next week will feature Jack Black's puppetized penis. (Insert "felt" joke here.)
All my usual sources are dry or have not updated today, so I'm going to post this boring entry as-is.
I will probably have something to say after the 10pm Kreskin prediction tonight.Also, and a little less interesting, Bob Lazar will be on AB tonight, and Art promises to set up a nightvision camera outside to see if he can spot any of Kreskin's UFO's.

Update:Canada Discovery film-maker admits to hoaxing the BigFoot footage. True Believers outraged.
Interesting article from Nature.com:The Universe is a computer.
Little by little:Bush Is Lying."Exactly two years before the Sept. 11 attacks, a federal report warned the executive branch that Osama bin Laden's terrorists might hijack an airliner and dive bomb it into the Pentagon or other government building.Suicide bomber(s) belonging to al-Qaida's Martyrdom Battalion could crash-land an aircraft packed with high explosives into the Pentagon, the headquarters of the Central Intelligence Agency, or the White House," the September 1999 report said." This was of course during the Clinton Administration, but doesn't change the fact that Bush Knew and waved away the warnings.
(Would it hurt so bad to at least try to refute this wild claim?) An Air Force Colonel was suspended from duty for publicly voicing the same concern:"He did nothing to warn the American people because he needed this war on terrorism," Butler wrote. "His daddy had Saddam and he needed Osama. His presidency was going nowhere. ... This guy is a joke." From Rense.com Lurking Behind The 911 Smokescreen and Hidden In Plain Sight:
The Real George W. Bush A National Disgrace
and America Betrayed - Bush Administration, FBI Complicity In 911 and The Dreadful Record Of The FBI and US Had Agents INSIDE al-Qaeda Before 911.
Also, an unrelated article on the pros/cons of Kreskin's UFO prediction for tomorrow, in which, if the prediction fails, he will pay out $50,000 to charity.(Note:prediction has been narrowed down to tomorrow night between 9:50pm and midnight around the Silverton Hotel in Vegas.) Can't wait to see what happens.Will listen to the results on AB while watching the MTV movie awards with the sound down. IF you aren't privvy, Kreskin predicts a massive UFO sighting tomorrow night. Publicity stunt? Very possibly.
Highly recommended reading:SMOKING GUN: The Evidence that May Hang G.W. Bush.
Also, FBI's shifting versions on missed 9/11 warnings I am obligated to remind that I started this site(9/12-13/01) on the premise that the US government was complicit in some way or other. Then the news got dull for awhile, and, while still reading and researching this, I started posting other sites of personal interest. Now it's all over the place, and if I had the money, I would place bets on the impending revelation that "Bush Knew". Enough self-congratulations for now.

"Chapel Perilous is where souls go when they are lost... also known as 'The Dark Night of the Soul'."
--Dr. Timothy Leary, The Game of Life
I got the title from one of my favorite authors, Robert Anton Wilson,whose was a good friend of Dr. Leary's.This quote from "Cosmic Trigger":"In researching occult conspiracies, one eventually faces a crossroad of mythic proportions (called Chapel Perilous in the trade). You come out the other side either stone paranoid or an agnostic; there is no third way. I came out agnostic.
Chapel Perilous, like the mysterious entity called "I," cannot be located in the space-time continuum; it is weightless, odorless, tastless and undetectable by ordinary instruments. Indeed, like the Ego, it is even possible to deny that it is there. And yet, even more like the Ego, once you are inside it, there doesn't seem to be any way to ever get out again, until you suddenly discover that it has been brought into existence by thought and does not exist outside thought. Everything you fear is waiting with slavering jaws in Chapel Perilous, but if you are armed with the wand of intuition, the cup of sympathy, the sword of reason, and the pentacle of valor, you will find there (the legends say) the Medicine of Metals, the Elixir of Life, the Philosopher's Stone, True Wisdom and Perfect Happiness.
That's what the legends always say, and the language of myth is poetically precise. For instance, if you go into that realm without the sword of reason, you will lose your mind, but at the same time, if you take only the sword of reason without the cup of sympathy, you will lose your heart. Even more remarkably, if you approach without the wand of intuition, you can stand at the door for decades never realizing you have arrived. You might think you are just waiting for a bus, or wandering from room to room looking for your cigarettes, watching a TV show, or reading a cryptic and ambiguous book. Chapel Perilous is tricky that way."
I wrote a song for mindvirus that I like called "chapel perilous", and happened to be writing the lyrics here when I decided to change the name from Book Of Shadows to it's present name.After discovering that absynthe site with "chapel perilous" in the URL, I googled it.(This site placed third.) Here are the more notable results.

From Deoxy.org.,T H E E I G H T F O L D M O D E L O F H U M A N C O N S C I O U S N E S S with this quote
"CHAPEL PERILOUS is an initiatory phase marking the transition between the first four intelligences and the latter four. It relates to post-Factor X activities in that both refer to 'out-of-body' states. However, CHAPEL PERILOUS is where souls go when they are lost and Factor X communications refer to how souls are found. CHAPEL PERILOUS is the place 'souls' go after leaving their robot bodies...while these bodies are still alive and walking the planet's surface. Also known as 'The Dark Night of the Soul.' Can also be seen as a negative activation of the 'neurosomatic circuit,' which is endured for as long as it takes the neophyte to effect a positive activation, or permanent body rapture."
Then there are quite a few reference to a work of fiction some lady wrote, a song some other guy wrote, the pages I am linked to, and that's about it. So I guess I won't have to change the name. But I wouldn't be a very gracious host if I didn't offer the reminder that the archived pages contain tons of links. Soon I will have them categorized for easy perusal as well as an on-site search tool. I used to bury links in the text, but discovered that probably nobody is checking those links, so now I seldom do, but when I do, rest assured they are worthwhile.
