no posted here for a while
I've not posted here fort a while. While we've all been silent on the board I know everyone is slowly, but surly working towards either a finner world, or trying to work out what a finer world is.
I enclose press coverage of my efforts behind a cut.( Read more...Collapse )

Slow Boat (Well Fast Jet) to China
As many of you may know I will be heading out to China a the end of the week. I will have plenty of time to
utilise on the aeroplane and have thus decided to take my Palm pilot with me. For those who wonder at the point of these little beeping menaces I must impart one fantastic use for them. They can store hundreds of books which you can read at your leisure. Reading on the screen is quite pleasant as you can light the screen up at night and it will even remember where you left off. Books over a certain age are free to download an d read and it is here I crave assistance. I normally download my "e-books" from www.memoware.com
. Can anyone recommend any older books that I may enjoy. So far I'm thinking of a lot of Sherlock Holmes and maybe Alice in wonderland. Can people suggest anything else? Current Mood: contemplative

Fragment from my notebook: this is from Phantom Force, one of three comic books I try to get written occasionally.
4 bar split
Panel one: KC standing at a bar, smoking, Arabic waiters moving around delivering drinks to tables, appears to be an Africa Core officers club.
Charles “Kerosene Charlie” Smith to barman: Scotch
KC: No, Scotch
Barman: With ice
KC: No, with Scotch
Panel two: young officer, we shall call him Curruthers for the sake of a good stereotype, walking into the tent looking nervous, place him behind KC, who has not turned around.
Curruthers: Sir, report on aircraft movements Sir.
KC: No, Scotch
Curruthers: No sir I have a report FOR you sir.
KC: After Scotch
Panel three: KC’s Scotch arrives.
Curruthers: sir, we have reports that two jerry squadrons are en route to our airstrip, with at least two Ubermen.
KC: how soon.
Curruthers: well, Now sir.
Panel 4: KC grabs the scotch bottle from the waiter’s hands
Next page 4 bar split
Panel 1: KC walking towards the door while pouring a Large Scotch.
Curruthers: we don’t have time to get anything in the air sir.
Panel 2: KC leaves the building, while downing the scotch.
Curruthers: What are you going to do
Panel 3: KC Flicks down his cigarette and begins to become surrounded by flame
KC: Something bloody heroic of course.
Panel 4 KC blasts into the sky.

bored, have a prezzie: What if superheores had to have proper jobs 1: The Atom
So you killed them all?
Well what the fuck was i supposed to do, let them get away with it?
Well no, obviously not but... all of them? Even the children?
You can't let the children live, they'll just be trouble down the line.
Sometimes i wonder what the world would be like if we didn't have people like you to do the dirty work.
A whole lot more crowded.
True...Well, you're back now, lets check the kill count.
Go for it.
Downloading kill count now
Confirmed, 2.7 million dead.
At 0.001p each it's still a bargin.
Listen, don't you think there might be a better use for your shrinking technology.
What, like medicine? Forget it, too complicated.
Well yeah, or saving the world like that comic book guy.
Buddy when you get as small as i need to to take those buggers out, an ant is more than enough fight for a guy like me. Anyway who wants the pressure.
So...cash or charge

For those not in the know Strange Machine
was a stunt orchestrated by Warren Ellis to get all his readers to
jump through hoops
create art online.
Futurity was the theme and hundreds contributed stories, photos, comics and music to this 24 hour cyberspace event. It's all still there, online, linked to over a hundred Livejournals, a permanent digital monument to the future, frozen in time like a fly in amber, unaltered since it's creation.
It is a thing of strange beauty. Go, see for yourselves.

Now I moderate a community, what the hell are we going to do with it?
Well the plan is simple. Now that Mr Warren Ellis has left us poor freaks on our own in here I feel we need somewhere to swap info and ideas, strange happenings and fantastic news, gadgets and strange machines *grin*.
So here it is, don't fuck around, don't be rude to others, play nice with the other dirty little freaks and we'll all get on!
We are here to build a finer world. Bring us art, ideas, strange things you found and lets chat about them.
I have no idea if people will use this but I hope so. If you have something to talk about, something funny or weird, bring it here. Superkids in Germany, we want to know! New ways to talk to each other, communicate, swap ideas? Here's the place! Future Art, phone photos, here is where well look and see.
This is a tool, and that's all I can give you it's up to you to use it.
Change the world or not, it's up to you.of course I won't be telling many people this exists...I want to see how many people are looking for a finer world. A little virus may start here (fingers crossed)
