Share Well, Youdopia, I think you know I dig robots, at least I seem to. Honda, pioneers of the ASIMO (eternally satirized on South Park as Awesome-O) have developed a robot/brain interface that allows thoughts to control robots. Excellent. Maybe the robots will conquer us before the zombies. That makes it the Coolest Shit Ever. [...]

Share You can’t have too much of a good thing, Youdopia. This clip is as close to what I can say that I “believe” as I can get on YouTube. Om Shanti Shanti Shanti.
Share Robert Anton Wilson Super Genius A little wisdom from Uncle Bob. Robert Anton Wilson changed my world as profoundly and Deeply as Siddha Yoga and Led Zeppelin combined. Taste this tidbit from the Man not long before he died. Fnord, and 23 skidoo, monsignor. Every man and every woman is a tsar, Youdopia. There [...]
ShareYoudopia… yes I like Star Trek: The Next Generation. I thought, and still think, the Borg are badass, and tonight I watched a hilarious episode of Family Guy, wherein the cast of TNG returned. Yes, it tickled my nerd bone (connected to the funny bone) and made me laugh, ergo it’s the Funniest Shit Ever. [...]
Share Howdy youdopia. A little YouTube scanning yielded this nugget. Funniest Shit Ever.
Share It’s been a wild couple of weeks. Courtesy of Facebook, I have found my wonderful son, I have reconnected with some old friends, and now I’m getting people I went to high school with. I live a very compartmentalized life. A house with many mansions, as it were. As I reconnect with people from [...]
ShareMy dear Youdopians, this is a cross post from my dear friend, whom I’ve know for thirty years. Television Sux is his blog, and this is a post from it. I have been wanting to post this for some time. Now here it is. “Thank you, you commie, homo-loving sons-of-guns. I did not expect this,” [...]
ShareHoly shit, youdopia. This isn’t much, really. But it is a nice piece of how they do it elsewhere. Gordon Brown got schooled by an MP, in the manner in which Britain does it. I wish we were a little more like that, but alas…. they’re all monsters, whore, goblins, or simply idiots… a few [...]
ShareYoudopia, I love music. I love music with soul. It’s trite, but the Rolling Stones once were amazing. This clip from 1972 of the boys doing Sweet Virginia live. The audio is pro mixed stereo, and the performance is outstanding. The Stones at their best. Guess what? It’s the Coolest Shit Ever. Keef rocks, Mick’s [...]
Share Well, youdopia, here he is. My son. He’s the fella on the right. Let’s hear it for the boy. I love him. We’ ve been chatting on Facebook, via machine translation, and I’m delighted that my wife, daughter, and dad have been also. It’s an amazing time.
ShareWell, Youdopia, is it that time already? We’ve had pop singers turn into crooners singing the classics, as they enter the September of their years (Rod Stewart comes to mind). Now, the Eighties are so long ago that Limahl, the too shy shy singer from Kajagoogoo now has a swing band. The twist is he [...]
Share Youdopia, Les Paul is amazing. His playing is amazing. His impact of music is virtually unparalleled in the 20th Century. He invented multitrack recording (as demonstrated in the video above) and overdubs, he perfected the solid body electric guitar, he played with some of the greats like Bing Crosby, Chet Atkins, and of course, [...]
Coolest Shit Ever: Alan Gives A Reading From Masks Of The Illuminati At Robert Anton Wilson’s Memorial22 Mar, 2009 in Coolest Shit Ever, craziest shit ever, fnord, Robert Anton Wilson, wisdom
ShareAlan Moore Reads RAW Masks of the Illuminati Is Wonderful Youdopia, it doesn’t get much better than Alan Moore giving a reading from Robert Anton Wilson’s Masks Of The Illuminati. This is from one of Bob’s memorial services. I miss him. I almost met him. He sent my roommate a copy of Orson Welle’s F [...]
Share I’m not a guitar nut, but this interview, from Gibson guitars is awesome. It is an indepth explanation of the custom work, and idiosyncracies of Jimmy Page’s famous #1 Les Paul. Gibson was taking it to replicate it for a signature edition. It has interest only because Jimmy knows what he’s talking about, and [...]

Share This scan is courtesy of Gawker. Check out this story from Bloomberg reporting how AIG’s 165 million dollar bonuses were actually at least 215 million dollars. Enough.
ShareHowdy youdopia. My friend Gus, who goes by August, now that he’s in the September of his years, says Youdopia hasn’t been updated since January. He is, of course, lying because I told him cold fusion doesn’t work. Anyhoo, this last month has been … how do you say… shitty and amazing. So I blog [...]
ShareHold on to your fucking hat, Youdopia. This commercial is exceptionally funny. The warnings given for this imaginary birthcontrol pill are hilarious. “Do not take if pregnant, as it may turn your baby into a firemonster.” and “Notify authorities when your period is immanent, as they may want to lock you up pre-emptively like a [...]
Share I joined Facebook, after years of resistance, because Kiki pointed out that I would likely find my son. Lo and behold. There he was. I have never met him, never seen him, save for a few photos. Years passed and continents, languages, cultures, and legalities kept us separate, and yet… google was no help. [...]
