Subject: You are the complete Libertarian!
Date: Mon, 08 Mar 1999

Good Afternoon Mr. D

I have perused your site a few times now and this time I felt the need to correspond.

I too am a Libertarian, although I do not hold to the beliefs as strongly as you (I believe in government sponsored education...not necessarily government run, vouchers are fine).

I am seriously considering moving to the Bahamas just to be free of the oppressive strangulation of taxation and *gag* the theft of what is known as Social Security.

It was quite cathartic to read your webpage and I thank you for providing the listing so I know where I can go to avoid taxation altogether.

cool. remember, though, that i have not yet verified that one can live tax *free* in the bahamas. just so you know. it certainly does sound good, though. you might also want to check into the doings of an interesting project with a silly name: New Utopia.

Hi again!

Sorry to bug you again, but I have a question! I can't remember the name of the country, but it was the one that has no taxation as a result of gull guano. How in the (*&* does guano make a difference as to whether or not they tax (steal from) their citizens?!

cos gull guano's valuable, and there was so much of it that the island would sell it, which pretty much gave them a free ride. but the supply's running low, i think. i saw it on 60 minutes a few years ago

Minor correction. I looked up Esclavage in my trusty French --> English dictionary and found it meant slavery. Slavery is prohibited by Monaco. I dunno if you meant 'cleavage' facetiously or not. Either way it shouldn't spoil anyones travel plans :)

yes, the latter. it's surprising, but a lot of people do not realize my french "translations" are not only inaccurate, but intentionally inaccurate

Subject: Correction

Great site - love the links to liberty, and the Gavin Bryars plug. One correction: "Bright Lights, Big City" became the title of a novel, not by Bret Easton Ellis (LESS THAN ZERO), but Jay McInerny - I know, those "Brat Pack" novelists of the 1980s all seem to blur together in our collective memories.

as well they should.

But you never know when Alex Trebek might read the title, and expect you to provide the author of record "in the form of a question."

nonetheless, in honor of the fact that i can't stand 80s brat pack novelists, i'm not going to correct the page.

Another thing, I have been "hitting" your site at random for about 6 months now and I have loved it! In fact if I hadent known about your small place in the cyber world I probably wouldn't have even THOUGHT to do this to my 84 Olds Firenza hatch when Dee Snyder came to KC.

On your site you promised to give us in the beginning of the year the name of the ´una paloma blanca contest´! So please: tell me who´s the winner. allthough i cannot sing or play the guitar or whatever other instrument i like the idea of this contest

ah, yes, we do have a winner -- from the netherlands, no less. i'm sure you know him personally! -- but i haven't gotten around to coding the pages yet. i am slacking off, sorry

Tonight i go to a coversnight in Amsterdam, where i live. Covers in punk version, covers in other versions and abbacovers. Must be great.

mmmm ... ABBA

Good luck with your site and all the activities and i found out about the telephonebooth: are there days nobody visites the booth or is it completely crowded nowdays.

I've been trying to sell a few cars on Classifieds2000 for over a year; a 1981 DeLorean and a '77 AMC Pacer. Anyhow, I just recieved this response to the DMC ad.

This is a response to your advertisement on Classifieds2000.
1981 Delorean Coupe, 44K miles, $13,000, VIN #4761, Delavan, WI


I have seen yr ad in here since Nov. I have also seen yr Pacer too.How badly do u need to get rid off your cars? By the way I noticed your overseas trip with wagner on Duce of!

I know not who this person is but he's obviously sailed the Cardhouse seas. We here at Nationwide are extremely envious of your global influence and hope that someday we could rival your celebrity status.

Too much, too too much.

You really are a sick little primate.


After perusing your "stripper Bingo" pages, I kicked my ass around the block and back for not checking my email sooner. I missed an eventful evening indeed; and I could have even assisted you as a designated chauffeur, since I went back to my sober ways right after Burning Man last year. (No, that's not quite true, I did have some blue drinks last month in Hawaii-- they matched my hair.)

Hey there, just a quick note on Whip It! It is resting quietly in a bucolic setting, nestled between a black '61 Continental, a '74 LeSabre convertible (see and an Orange tree (and the oranges are ripe!). I just got the photos of the move back and will scan in a few for you. There has been a fair amount of rain here, but it seems to be handling it OK.

Let me know if you need to show it - I can put another pin in the distributor so folks can see it run (however briefly).

I hope to be heading out to the Orange Show in MediaLimo (or at least TropiCar) and would love to hook up en route.

hey man, nice site. i got here from the ring of fire. i dont think that the searches look for words in a site like that. plus i think you have to register with them before they can even pull your site up so dont worry about using those words.

the search engines do find all the pages, actually. they just follow all the links and then log all the words. link. logs. linkin' logs. search engines are like lincoln logs.

and hey, if they do find your site that way then mabey the'll read alittle about what its all about and it will shead some lite on the whole nudity thing alittle better. i am a nudist and i hate the fact that 90% of the people in the US look at nudity as a sexual thing. so let em look and see that its posible to be nekkid and not engaging in sex!

Subject: Where is Wagner?
Date: Mon, 8 Feb 1999

On the 9th page, i believe ( anyway, ), of the 'Oracular Journey' article, there is no Wagner at the second photograph. Please explain.

Yours sincerely,

Srdjan Dutina,
Belgrade, Europe.

wagner's stunt-statue was out sick that day, & wagner refused to be tossed into the air. instead, a stick was used. i don't know whether you've seen the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, where the apeman tosses the bone into the air & it turns into a spaceship? (it's not as weird as it sounds.) (wait; i guess it *is* as weird as it sounds.) well, that's pretty much what we were going for there.

it's good to see yugoslavia hasn't lost its sense of humor. thanks for writing,

From: Vladimir
Subject: Re: Re
Date: Fri, 19 Feb 1999

As a matter of fact, I did see the "Odyssey", a couple of times that is, and I understood what you were going for there.

I could say (but maybe I won't) that I like the site very much, especially the most recent 'Item of the Week' (tralala). I also collect notes that contain a substantial amount of ridicule in them. If you're interested, I can send scans of some of them, along with translations (most of them are in Serbian)... There are some very nice pieces, like the one from the county cemetery:

"Citizens are urged to leave the litter from their graves at the main gate. -- Cemetery management"

So if you want some of these, please let me know.

Also... I like the "Cockeye" number very much (the 'Sancho' part, that is) and I am very interested in obtaining the whole piece. (Maybe you noticed that I am writing in very formal English -- I assure you this is on purpose -- this digression has absolutely nothing to do with anything at all, actually :-)). As it is highly unlikely that I am going to find a Deadbolt disc or tape from anyone else I know, I was wondering if you could send it to me somehow (disc, tape, mp3, whatever suits you). As there are no real copyright laws around here, I won't tell anyone if you don't tell anyone. To illustrate what I just wrote about the laws, let's say that you can "buy" Photoshop 5, or Win98 or both, for around $2.00 :-). This also stands for legal companys, goverment offices... anyone can pirate anything without a thought of being prosecuted making the slightest possibility of crossing his mind (this sentence sounds wierd, I know, but you understand what I want to say). So anyway, pretty please, endulge my wish and send me "Cockeye".

Please note that the absence of Wagner in the photo I mentioned in the mail before should be considered a hapaxlegomenon of your web opus, and should be treated as such.

i actually know what that means. i used to teach greek -- just ask max, that little fact cost her a dollar last weekend (stripper bingo)

That's about it. Hope to hearing from you soon. (is this sentence ok?)

Good luck,

I heard you have pneumonia, so I bought you some "stuff" for a care-package last weekend, it might take a while to get there - but I hope your feeling better, that seems to be going around!

I haven't been home practically the whole month of January, been house/animal sitting in Portland, should be home next week, have some other stuff there to include w/your "care package" maybe you should stay sick until you get my package - cuz then when it heals you - you'll feel obligated towards me, and I'll come up w/something really wretched for you to do for me!

I do hope your feeling better - ya bastard!

arielle, i hate to be the one to break it to you, but . . .


sad, isn't it? ferrara-pan in its exceedingly finite wisdom decided to rename them "cherryheads." they don't realize that it's NOT THE SAME

this is an across-the-board shift. (e.g., alexander the grape is now "grapeheads," and so forth.)

Subject: Ute Lemper


I haven't quite figured out who you are yet,


but your interest in Ute Lemper interests me a lot. A few months ago I went Ute-searching on the net and found your interview w/ her. Then you posted info about it on and I decided to write and ask you how you got to do an interview with her,

i used to write articles & interviews for magazines. i had been listening to ute lemper for a number of years and when i heard she would be singing at USC, there was no way i was going to miss seeing the show (i live in arizona). i also thought it would be a good chance to interview her, so i proposed the idea to Planet Magazine (no longer published), and they gave the go-ahead, so i spoke to her by phone (she was in paris, as i think i noted in the interview).

what you do for a living,

writing & computer junk

and if you are German


or just interested in stuff like that (including Ute).

i guess that would be fair to say

I'm a regular at the and though the messages on the board are purely subjective I enjoy exchanging opinions with those people. It's like whenever someone has even the fogiest idea of what Ute is doing in the next hour, they rush to post it.

I'd really appreciate a response from you.

Thank you

Didn't Mark Twain say something like, "Wagner's music is a lot better than it sounds." My sentiments, exactly.

in fact, twain wrote an entire essay about his trip to bayreuth

But, I do like your site. In fact, I've spent hours reading most of it.

i hope you were at work

(I originally found it because of the Bisbee Mobile Home Motel which was featured on a travel program.) When the gloomy weather around here gets me down, I surf on over to see what's new in your world and maybe have a chuckle or two.

February 1st -- is that your birthday, or is that just how your day went -- "my day"? You have an interesting family. So do I. And, like you, I'm half Swedish (well, not quite half).
