The Vortex is spinning faster.

So, awhile ago I read this story that I found on one of my all-time favorite web pages, (I don't really read Rense too much anymore, because it gets me so angry and sometimes it is easier to live in the dark.)

This story was full of "New Age" stuff and Mayan Calendar 2012 info and the Great Cross at Hendaye. It was an "interesting" story and I liked it. One of the main points is how we are spiraling down to the "singularity" that will happen at 2012 and everything is going faster and faster and getting crazier and crazier.

I am not doing a very good job at explaining it, so why don't you just read about it here.

The main thing that I got out of the story is that everything is going faster and faster and getting more and more crazy. I think this is very true and it can't go on forever before something has to give.

Soon, it will be physically impossible to shove any more bad stuff into a day. I mean, have you seen the headlines lately? They are crazy! Can we really fit more bad news into a day?

That is why I liked the article, even thought it is talking about some crazy ideas, they are still rooted in the truth - that things are getting crazier every day.

So, when I read this blog that was on the, I found it very cool and I totally agreed with the author.

The title of the blog was called "Click! I Quit" and the first line is "More. Faster. Louder. More. More. Faster. Louder. More." It seems that other folks are feeling the pressure and noticing that shit is piling up pretty quick these days. It seems that this person too is feeling the spin of the vortex.

So yes, now we have proof that the spinning vortex is a real phenomenon, because we have two articles on the internet about it, so therefore it must be true.

Now that you know this, what are you going to do about it? Well, knowing something is half the battle. Once you realize that things are getting more and more crazy, and the days are going by faster, just prepare yourself mentally for it. Know that you have to get things done today and try to keep up on your responsibilities. Because if you don't shit will pile up faster than you can handle, and then you get behind and that is no good.

Coming to a Blog near you.... My Comments!

So, I was reading a blog post today and it mentioned leaving comments will increase your readership.

I am still thinking in the old web 1.0 E/N way. You know, have a page, find some other pages that are "E/N" and then send the webmaster a note that says "Wow, I think your site is really neat-o. Check out mine and pretty please link me." This of course was "back in the day" when was actually cool, and not just porn, like it is today. (some will argue, that stileproject was never cool) One of the old originals is still around it seems. is still alive and kicking I see. Chimptopia was one of the few sites that linked my old site back in the day. He was cool.

Where was I?

Oh yeah, back in the old days, you had to beg for links. Now, in the new "blogger world", all you have to do is leave a comment and you get an automatic link back to your site!

That is super keen and is what I am going to go do right now.

I wonder how many I can do...

Another post about Bigfoot.

The internet is truly amazing. It is so vast, there is never anyway somebody could see it all.

The answers to life are printed somewhere on the internet, you just have to find it, and that is the difficulty.

There are some things that you might not have seen, and others that you might have. I don't know what camp this next link falls into, but I thought it was cool, so I thought I would pass it on.

I think you should read this "Identity Production in a Networked Culture: Why Youth Heart MySpace". I found this essay very interesting and I highly recommend it. I found the link when I was surfing and came across this post. Like I said, there is so much stuff. Some of it is interesting and some of it is not. I guess the object is all about finding interesting stuff and blogging about it.

Speaking of interesting stuff, I read something that I thought was very interesting. Well, it was interesting to me and it was about Bigfoot.

The first book I read about Bigfoot was "50 Years with Bigfoot: Tennessee Chronicles of Co-Existence". This is a story about a man that made friends with a Bigfoot in Tennessee. This story is very controversial in the Bigfoot world for many reasons, the least of being it claims that the Bigfoots have a language. I found this to be interesting, and it seems plausible to me. I mean if you believe that there are giant hairy hominids running around in the dark that have not been seen or caught, or accepted by science, then how hard is it to believe that they have a language? Well, I guess it is taboo in the bigfoot research circles. This article also looks at the possibility that bigfoot is psychic. This is very, very controversial and most bigfoot researchers think that this is total bunk.

However, every once and a while you read about someone that has a psychic experience, as this BFRO sighting reports. Sometimes you even hear about a Bigfoot trying to talk to someone.

I read an article today on that looks at both these possibilities, and it was quite interesting.

That is, if you are interested in bigfoot and have read the "50 Years with Bigfoot".

Anyway, check it out

Let's blog politics-NOT!

I have noticed that so many blogs are about politics.

I used to blog about politics and how George W. was a punk ass. I used to "Bush Bash" about him back when his rating were 70%. Don't believe me? Well, you can check out my old website courtesy of the "Internet Way Back Machine". Here is the archive for my old page. (Make sure to find the "Space Burger" design, remember that?). I even had a nice nick-name for Bush... Drinky McDumbass. (See the 1/24/00 post here)

9/11 did not even stop me from "Bush Bashing" (check out my posts just after 9/11)

During that time, I also started to follow the "conspiracy" websites. Now remember back then, 9/11 was thought of as nothing more than 19 terrorists with a box cutter. Now, 5 years later people are actually looking into some of the inconsistencies that happened that day.

My friends all thought that I was a fool to read these "conspiracy" sites. Especially such writers as Sherman Skolnick . I always thought Sherman spoke the truth, and was way ahead of the curve when it came to finding out the dirt on our politicians, no matter how bizzar his stories were.

I knew that "time would tell", and of course, I was right.

For example, Sherman reported long ago about pedifiles in Washington. Well, low and behold, he was right. The head of Homeland Security was arrested earlier this month for sending a 14 year old girl porno. Seems that Sherman was right.

Anyway, to make a long story short, I have blogged about politics and did my share of Bush Bashing for like three years, way before it was "the thing to do". I am now over it. I have moved on, because I am an "early adopter" and Bush Bashing is old news. Well, at least for me it is old news. Seems like everyone else out there is just finding out what a complete waste of human flesh GWB is.

Now, it will only take another two years for people to get off there butts and kick him out of office, but by that time he will be termed out.

I however have moved on and will not talk about Drinky McDumbass anymore.

I saw what was coming a long time ago... That is why I drive a veggie car.

Michelle Malkin

Well, remember a couple of days ago when I just at random mentioned Michelle Malkin's blog? I don't know if you went there that day and read it, but she happened to be talking about some kind of flap with UC Santa Cruz students. I did not pay much attention, even though it is news from "my backyard". (for those that don't know their geography, Felton six miles from downtown Santa Cruz). See, I live here and I know how easy it is for the UCSC students to get mad and protest something. As a matter of fact, there was just some "SUV vandalism" last week, so I am used to somebody protesting something.

Anyway, I just did a technorati search and it seems that Michelle Malkin is the number one search. I guess she is some kind of "right winger" (*gasp) and people are all up in arms about the UCSC flap.

Bloggers are even posting her phone number.

I don't really care, and I am not even sure what it is about.

I just want to pimp some traffic from technorati.

Video Blog #1

I found this new web 2.0 site called It is a video editing and sharing site. One of the cool features it has is the ability for a person to upload video taken from their phone and mix the clips.

Well, I had to try it out

I have created a "Video Blog" by using the video capture option on my cellphone. I had to do it in a bunch of little clips, as the phone only records a few seconds of video. Anyway, check it out. I think it is kind of neat-o, considering it is my first ever movie. I will be making more.

Oh, the most amazing thing is that I created everything using my dial-up connection. So what we have here is a total low budget film. Filmed with a cellphone and mixed on the web using a dial-up connection.

Anyway, here is the video blog.

Off Topic?

I was reading somewhere on the web the other day that your blog should stay on topic.

"They" were saying that a blogger must be "on-topic" 80% of the time and 20% is off topic.

Then it occurred to me... I don't have a topic for my blog. Should I have a topic? My topic is whatever I want to write about. If that is my topic, then I am always on topic and then I win. (or something like that)

Speaking of blogs, I was also looking at the "Top 500" blogs as ranked by Feedster. I don't know how these blogs get so popular. I went to a few of them and I was not impressed. For example, this Michelle Malkin person is at blog #8. I have read her blog, but I don't see the big deal. Especially for being at the #8 spot for all blogs. I am not saying that my little blog here is any better (or is it?), but I would think that the #8 blog out of the 20 something million current blogs would be better.

That is of course, if you had any faith that people had enough sense to pound sand in a rat hole. However, I am finding out that is usually not the case. People are lemmings and will do whatever the masses will tell them to do. People say that Michelle Malkin's blog is the 8th most popular, so it must be good. Then more people start reading it and it becomes more popular.

All the while the blog does not get any more interesting, it just kind of becomes... blah.

Of course, if people did not have to struggle all the time to create posts that were "on topic", then they might have the freedom to post about whatever they wanted.

And it just might be interesting.

Cool things I saw this week.

Ok then. I just wanted to post a quick post to share with you some cool things I have seen this week. Hopefully, you will like these "news stories", but who really knows anyhow? Not me.

Cool thing #1
Santa Cruz school buses have just started to run off of biodiesel in the grade of B99.

B99 means that it is 99% biodiesel and 10% regular petrodiesel. This is really cool, and gets them most of the way off of petrodiesel. See, not all biodiesel blends are created equal. Most of the commercial grades (such as Bio-Willie) are only B20, which is 20% biodiesel and %80 petrodiesel.

These new Santa Cruz buses get their fuel from our own local Pacific Biofuel, so not only are they helping to lessen their dependence on fossil fuels, but they are helping the local economy. Now that is pretty cool.

Cool thing #2
You might not find this as cool, but I think it is pretty keen, and the first peek of the future of the web. What I am talking about is Frank Taylor's post over at Google Earth Blog. He talks about how a user has created a link between Wikipedia and Google Earth.

What this means is when you are flying around in Google Earth, an "active link" searches a part of the Wikipedia database and displays the 80 best entries in your view. Therefore, Google Earth is not just a cool thing to view your house in anymore. No! Now, it is a geographically based learning tool. This means that in Google Earth, you are able to view the difference between Cape Horn and False Cape Horn, and it becomes clear how sailors could have gotten the two confused. When you just read about them, it is much harder to get the full extent of both of these features.

I think this is the future of the web, because I see geography being another way to search for information. Just think if you could go to any city in Google Earth and be able to zoom in and be able to find stuff. Things like commercial services are starting to appear on Google Earth now, but I see in the future, everyone having their own piece of virtual "real estate", and that being their on-line profile. So, you could zoom over to another country and find some one's webspace.

See, it would be like a MySpace, but instead of doing a text search for the people that live in "Santa Cruz", you would fly over Santa Cruz in Google Earth and all these points would show up that would link to folks' on-line profiles.

It is the future, you just wait and see.

Still Raining, Still dreaming...

Will the rain ever stop? I don't know where you live, but where I live, we have been getting records amount of rain. How exactly much do you ask? Well, you can check out the totals, at the Bonny Doon rain guage page. It did happen to stop raining for one day and that day was Saturday. So, where do you go when it sunny? Well, if you are the administrative team at, you go to Big Sur.

Here are some pictures. As is the case for these trips lately, they were taken with the cameraphone. These pictures were taken April 8th.

This is some random cove on the Big Sur Coast.

As you can see, it was a nice day. You would never know that it started raining the next day.

McWay Falls
This is McWay Falls. This was our turning around point for the day.

Of course, my photos are pretty good of McWay Falls, but if you want to see some really good ones, check everybody's pictures at of McWay Falls

Technorati Tags: Session 6 Posted.

I have posted the "lost" session. Well, it was not really "lost", it was just that I had forgotten about it. This session is from 11-11-05. Anyway, go check it out and download all the songs.

I just found this really cool site. It is called It is a "Music Discovery" site. Basically you type in an artist or band and the good folks at Pandora (who created the music genome project) find other music that is just like the song or band you entered and create a "radio station" based on your tastes. This thing is really, really, really cool and I very highly suggest it for all you folks out there that like to find new music (you know who you are).

I created a "Ray Noble" station that is pretty neat-o. You can check out my Ray Noble station here.

So, I have been reading up on all these new Web 2.0 sites. They are springing up faster than... Well, I don't know what, but they are springing up faster than I can keep up with them. All I know is that I am signing up for the 2.0 sites that I see and I like. The latest one that I just found today is called I don't know all the stuff that it does, but I decided to sign up anyway cause it looked cool. Go view my profile here. Basically, the site tracks what songs you are listening to on your computer and then shares it with the world. Then it compare it to other members and then recommends songs and bands you might like. I think you can actually listen to songs too. I have not tried that feature out yet as I have so much music to listen to I don't have enough time as it is. One of the coolest things is "the chart". You can see the chart posted right above, there in the header. The chart lets all the visitors to this blog see what music I am listening to. See it? See all the cool music I listen to?

Or, as Ignignokt of theMooninites would say..."Bow down to the list of good music from beyond the moon" or something like that. Then Err would say..."Yeah, bow down bitches"

Mendocino Road Trip

This is a test. I read the web 2.0 article in Newsweek and it was mentioning The article said that you could blog pictures with one click of the button. Anyway, now I am trying it with a picture of the beach at Russian Gulch State Park. I am sure I will come back and post more pictures in this post, but I wanted to try this "blog this!" thing out.

See, I am writing this entry at, and not at my usual blogger posting page. Some might not think that is exciting, but I think it is kind of cool. Especially after reading the Newsweek article. (Ok, I just tried it and it works..., but now I am back at blogger adding more picts.)

So, anyway, just got back from a three day roadtrip to Mendocino. Followed Hwy 1 all the way up. It was nice as these pictures show. Even thought it was supposed to rain, there was still patches of sun. Mendocino is a great little town and it is even better when the weather is bad and nobody is there.

Russian Gulch State Park- This is a view from the beach. Hwy 1 is right above you.

Glass Beach

Glass Beach, Fort Bragg- This was a very cool beach. I guess it used to be a dump in the 1940's. Now all the garbage is gone, but lots and lots of glass is left. Most of the white specks in this picture is beach glass.

Room with a view
Speaking of Fort Bragg, check out the view from the room. The North Cliff Hotel is super nice and pretty reasonable considering what you get. It is a great place to kick it and watch the storms roll in. If you can't tell, that is a fireplace next to the window... Swank!

As always, you can view all the pictures at my account. Just look for all the pictures that were uploaded April 1st.
