Today's freshchaos sit-rep
That's 'situation report' to the un-cnn'd. Took a bit of a Spring break from Self-employ/enjoyment last week. Not that there wasn't any freshchaos to write about. Sadly, there was plenty. Getting kind of embedded in the war and the oncoming of Spring a time for rapid-fire change.
On our minds today: Does Wolf Blitzer ever sleep and what the hell is Barbara Starr staring at? By the way, Paula Zahn should be the next Ms. America.
Sanity alert: just when I start to go over the edge lately, I have enjoyed the freshchaos antics of Jon Stewart and his Daily Show.
Spam alert: I have always heard you should never try to delete your email address from spam lists. Being the 'born against' sort that I am, I just had to break this rule and I boldly deleted my email address from a rat pack of spammers. Less than a week later, I can now report with earnest and factual proof that it is indeed true: you should never try to delete your email address from spam lists.

Just in from the ChaosNewsNetwork:>
Does Anyone remember this?
It was 1987! At a lecture the other day they were playing an old news video of Lt.Col. Oliver North testifying at the Iran-Contra hearings during the Reagan Administration.There was Ollie in front of God and country getting the third degree, but what he said was stunning! He was being drilled by a senator; "Did you not recently spend close to $60,000 for a home security system?"
Ollie replied, "Yes, I did, Sir."
The senator continued, trying to get a laugh out of the audience, "Isn't that just a little excessive?"
"No, sir," continued Ollie.
"No? And why not?" the senator asked.
"Because the lives of my family and I were threatened, sir."
"Threatened? By whom?" the senator questioned.
"By a terrorist, sir" Ollie answered.
"Terrorist? What terrorist could possibly scare you that much?"
"His name is Osama bin Laden, sir" Ollie replied.
At this point the senator tried to repeat the name, but couldn't pronounce it, which most people back then probably couldn't. A couple of people laughed at the attempt. Then the senator continued. "Why are you so afraid of this man?" the senator asked.
"Because, sir, he is the most evil person alive that I know of", Ollie answered.
"And what do you recommend we do about him?" asked the senator.
"Well, sir, if it was up to me, I would recommend that an assassin team be formed to eliminate him and his men from the face of the earth."
The senator disagreed with this approach, and that was all that was shown of the clip.
By the way, that senator was Al Gore
Terrorist pilot Mohammad Atta blew up a bus in Israel in 1986. The Israelis captured, tried and imprisoned him. As part of the Oslo agreement with the Palestinians in 1993, Israel had to agree to release so-called "political prisoners." However, the Israelis would not release any with blood on their hands, The American President at the time, Bill Clinton, and his Secretary of State, Warren Christopher, "insisted" that all prisoners be released.
Thus Mohammad Atta was freed and eventually thanked the US by flying an airplane into Tower One of the World Trade Center. This was reported by many of the American TV networks at the time that the terrorists were first identified. It was censored in the US from all later reports.

Thank the powers some relief from the constant CNN (ChaosNewsNetwork) war stories...
In roundball news tonight...March Madness marches the UNM Lady Lobos to the Sweet 16!!
Tonight's sell-out Albuquerque crowd filled THE PIT with noise and celebration as the Lady Lobos walloped Mississippi State .
The next round Regionals are again at the infamous and oh-so-loud PIT. Whoo Hoo! Go LOBOS!!
I have pretty much lost my sense of humor for all things W but this joke is 'cute'...except for the facts that Wall Street is falling faster than the Niagra , helicopters are crashing, armoured troop carriers burning, one of our own hand grenades his boss's tent, and a bunch of USA p.o.w.'s have been taken and all this for only 75 billion dollars or so and then throw in the sandstorm that's a brewin' and what else can go wrong following the big "shock and awe" campaign?
So here's the joke:
An airplane was about to crash; there were 5 passengers on board but only 4 parachutes. The 1st passenger said, "I am Kobe Bryant, the best NBA basketball player, the Lakers need me, I can't afford to die." So he took the 1st pack and left the plane.
The 2nd passenger, Hillary Clinton, said, "I am the wife of the former US President, a NY State Senator and a potential future president." So she took the 2nd pack and jumped out of the plane.
The 3rd passenger, George W. Bush, said, "I'm the president of the United States of America. I have great responsibility being the leader of a superpower nation. And I am the cleverest president in American history, so America's people won't let me die." So he grabbed the pack next to him and jumped out of the plane.
The 4th passenger, the Pope, said to the 5th passenger, a 10 year old schoolgirl, "I am old and frail and don't have many years left, and as a Catholic I will sacrifice my life and let you have the last parachute." The girl said, "It's okay, there is a parachute left for you. America's cleverest
president has taken my schoolbag."

It was certainly an historic tv moment to watch LIVE, in color, wide-screened with full digital sound the A DAY:"Shock and Awe" attack on Baghdad. I am indeed "awed and shocked". Perhaps this is the last quarter of the world wide Super Bowl that kicked off on 9-11-01. And, lest we forget, God Bless America. God bless us ALL!
Talk about blowing stuff up...Now, you too can
Blow up Bin Laden!
While you are at it, Celebrate the Spring Equinox!

Thank God we have cable and super duper satellite vision. This just in from CNN: we are winning ! We're ahead by 17 and March Madness is barely underway.
Yes, it's true...17 Iraqi soldiers have surrendered already. GO USA! Did I say I didn't vote for Bush yesterday? Oh man, he is my Gary-Cooper-super-High-Noon-Hero today.
And, lest we forget, God Bless America. Matter-a-fact, God, bless us ALL!

It certainly is an odd full moon night-day-month-year-millennium that we are in just now...
It is sad to feel so powerless against our current world changing events. It is sad to have no voice in the way of our own country's democracy regarding the President's vendetta against the evil one. I did not vote for Mr. Bush nor for his father. I would like to say, to think, and to feel, that all of the blood soon to be spilt is not on my hands but, as one member of this big old rough and tough land of cowboys and cheeseburgers , the blood will be on all of our hands. And we will be lucky if it is only blood.
Though I wrote this poem in 1984 ; it seems fresh and alive with chaos today...
When I scream
You will see
my face strewn across stars
You will know then
the pain of blood screamed
When I shout
You will feel
the heat of snow
melted over volcanos
dropped on forest fires
bombed from the bellies of fish
When I kill for
You will come far
to see clowns and scorpions
dancing like angels
broken by dawn
You will know
that I have died
And that the parts of me
which are left to ramble the earth
Come from somewhere
deep inside the blood factory
Beating with the drums of all my relations

Wall Street sees GREEN today...Let's go kill some ragheads dudes, and lest we forget, God Bless America.

In today's Email: actual Haiku error messages from Japan:
1. The Web site you seek
Cannot be located, but
Countless more exist.
2. Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
3. Program aborting:
Close all that you have worked on.
You ask far too much.
4. Windows NT crashed. I am the
Blue Screen of Death.
No one hears your screams.
5. Yesterday it worked.
Today it is not working.
Windows is like that.
6. Your file was so big.
It might be very useful.
But now it is gone.
7. Stay the patient course.
Of little worth is your ire.
The network is down.
8. A crash reduces
Your expensive computer
To a simple stone.
9. Three things are certain:
Death, taxes and lost data.
Guess which has occurred.
10. You step in the stream,
But the water has moved on.
This page is not here.

We wish to hold the whole sky,
But we never will.
12. Having been erased,
The document you're seeking
Must now be retyped.
13. Serious error.
All shortcuts have disappeared.
Screen. Mind. Both are blank.
A new chapter is unfolding in the continuing story of the AirDanceArtSpace.This chapter is called, The Rising. Hats off to 'the boss'.
Sorry to report some stank on Paul Kantner's Stella Blue show. This just in from Dukerboy... Subject: the starship in nm.To: email@example.com
what looked like fun turned into disapointment when the next day i was informed that the "band" had walked out on their tab, refused to play a second set, kantner took a bottle of vodka, were fed, and demanded they get
paid before playing one note. this "hippy" band only with one jefferson airplane origionals DID play good, not great. so as to say it was a night spent with close friends was acccurate except that our close friends got screwed. stella blue is a small bar trying to bring some cool music to town and i feel that they do a great job if they wern't taken advantage of by the "peace, pot, microdot" relex of the past glory bands. we should have known better, the starship sucks..............hot tuna rules. mabey thats why jorma and jack left in the first place. dukerboy, Team Zonk
Well, alrighty then.

A most amazing movie is Donnie Darko...Produced by Drew Barrymore, it is truly some outstanding freshchaos. Every school teacher should give it a view.
There is a song/video from the movie whose lyrics come from an old group, Tears for Fears. It is re-done very well by Gary Jules The lyrics could have been written in the eighties or five minutes ago ...
All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
And their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tommorow, no tommorow
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
'Cos I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very
Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday
Made to feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me
As mentioned earlier here, the movie has a strange website Donnie Darko!
I visited the website without having seen the movie. It all makes a bit more sense now...ok. Not all of the website makes sense nor does all of the movie but obviously I like it and, like most movies I like, it was cheap at the store today because it was not a big smash hit. Thank god for offbeat movies with the flavor of fresh chaos.

This letter just in...I have paraphrased and edited it a bit. Good stuff for a strange week on the planet.
Creating Peace: Here's what you can do.
1. Use your thoughts wisely. It's impossible to create peace and harmony if you're condemning Bush, Cheney, etc. The split in our nation right now about war is actually creating more of the energy of war. It's not possible to "fight" for peace without creating war.
2. To create peace, you have to be peaceful. The only way to stop war is to
start from within yourself. You must do personal disarmament. Remember, that to which you give your attention expands.
3. Prayer works but only in an atmosphere of compassion, not condemnation. The energy of condemnation prevents connection with the hearts of those who most need inspiration and love.
4. Avoid too much news . The media is designed to get you riled up, so that you will buy more papers or watch more TV.
5. Finally, there's an old saying, "The rising tide lifts all boats. But it won't raise a stone." Stop looking at and thinking about the stones. Join me in raising the tide. Christiane Northrup, M.D.

A roof section of the AirDance ArtSpace was successfully removed today. A huge crane actually hoisted several sections off so that a steel building for an 'Aerial Dance Blackbox Theater' can rise in its place. This bit of freshchaos reminded me of Dorothy's house coming down on the Wicked Witch. Fortunately, no one was hurt and, so far, the weather remains satisfactory for roof-less-ness.

Jefferson Starship in Albuquerque.
Sunday, March 02, 2003
In a weekend move that is freshly chaotic to say the least, the Turkish Parliament rejected a motion that would have granted a U.S. request to position tens of thousands of ground forces for the assault into northern Iraq and to station about 200 additional strike aircraft at two other bases.
There goes the gazillions we were gonna 'rent' their land for. PEACE is worth at least 16 billion or so apparently. Well, we saved money there for sure, Billie Bob.
When will the leader of what used to be the most powerful nation in the world See the kozmic light and bring our troops home. Lotsa SIGNS say "Call it a day! Leave it there for now..." The NASA disaster over Palestine, Texas; the slow but steady offerings of Saddam Man; the worldwide protests...but you get the idea. Why doesn't W?

The Jefferson Starship landed tonight at Albuquerque's Stella Blue . Featuring an intimate performance by Paul Kantner, Slick Aguilar, Diana Mangano, and Chris Smith, it was a show of life changing fresh chaos!
Stay tuned for more photographs . Here is one showing a happy and tired Paul Kantner, with Debra Landau after the show.
