Non Verbal December Caveat

Due to an unfortunate technical difficulty, NonVerbal December will not encompass every aspect of this journal as was originally planned. Instead, the same Plaza of the Mind navigation tools and date stamps will continue as usual. The posts, however, will be completely nonverbal. I hope you enjoy this experiment in monastic expression.

Carrot Girl [c. 1990] GRJC - ENG100

verse twelve.

'I eat nothing but carrots, look at the orangish tan tint of my skin, and this strange grayness beneath my fingernails.'

'I don't know - I've never felt better in my life, although I've been slipping lately, my memory - I can't seem to remember the names of actors any longer.'

'Oh, I don't know, about the carrots though - you should try it.'

My Biological Clock is Ticking

William Hung

Thanks to David P for the heads up:

William Hung has released a Christmas Album! It can be procured at Emusic so check it out!

If you act now I think they have some sort of free trial deal going on so you are guaranteed a reasonable rate.

Incident at Fingies

Victim walked across the parking lot. He could see his breath in the cold winter night. The parking lot was lit by stark white lights. Victim looked up at the top of the mall roof and spotted the first camera, making a quick note of its location he ran towards the sidewalk surrounding the mall. The salt crunched under his feet, he wondered why the mall hadn't invested in heating under the sidewalk, the University used to have heated walks, that way, it was very difficult for ice to form, hence less need for a grounds crew and less expense for salt and labor. He walked about fifty feet up the walk and spotted the second camera; it was right above the "Fingies" video arcade sign. The brand new sign seemed to clash with the rest of the mall. Victim could make out two letters sun-faded onto the wall, an "L" and a "B". Victim stopped, he turned around and looked straight up, high atop the light post was the third camera.
"'L' and …

Message from Vanessa Daou Regarding Her New Record

Hi K, Thank you! Hope you enjoy it... Best, Vanessa

[Italics and Bold type added by Plaza of the Mind]

This note was in reference to a note sent to Ms. Daou stating my relief that she has a new project in the works, due out in February of next year. It has been a long wait since 2001's release of Make You Love.

The Most Pathetic One Alive

When I was a young boy I used to try and imagine who the most pathetic person alive would be. I thought that I should not feel so badly, should not feel so picked on when there was someone alive who was ever more pathetic.

As I grew older I started to think of this question in differing ways. Who, objectively, in all of humanity, has it the worst? Who is the most pathetic?

To study this objectively one would have to create parameters for determining the Pathetic Quotient. One could not simply rest on physical problems nor mental ones. One could not only take into account the fact that a person was from the lowest socio-economic class or whether the person was from a persecuted class or race. One would also have to take into account the Irony Variable, had the person taken a great fall? Had the person once been, say, a vigorous athlete now reduced to severe handicap and poverty?

I realize now, since I have been of the world and understand how these things work, that a grant is in …

Announcing NonVerbal December!

You may have noticed that the Plaza of the Mind has been rather empty over the past week or so. This is because Mr. Weller is preparing himself for his next challenge: The NonVerbal Journal. Next month, in preparation [and perhaps even celebration] of the encroaching destruction of the Written Word, The Plaza of the Mind will be presented sans Words.

Plaza of the Mind Teaching Center opens new Soviet Annex

As part of the Plaza of the MindUnited States - Soviet Unionoutreach program, we recently sent a broadcast of our teachings to a small village in the Ural Mountains.

The Plaza of the Mind would like to extend thanks to Soviet Premier Никита Сергеевич Хрущёв [Nikita Khrushchev] for his willingness to participate in this program despite his differences with the Plaza of the Mind's country of origin. The usually sun starved children of Yekaterinberg have been enjoying a Plaza of the Mind endoctrination-rich solar synthesis. Not only are they soaking up some much needed rays, they are also absorbing the Plaza of the Mind's world-renown Self Teaching Modules without having to put the cram-time in. Let's hope we can get funding for this program stateside!

[Unfortunately the U.S of A has always been slightly behind the times when it comes to involuntary ESP and other Psychotronic experimentation.]

The Yes-Med Program - First Exercise [Self Learning Module Series Section B [For Advanced Users Only]] *This is not Self Teaching Module 1C'

Advanced Study Exercise - Year Specific Media Immersion Program [Yes-Med Program]An exercise may be the creation of a 'year study program' where all of the members of the group must only be able to view media from a certain year.Thereby re-creating the outside feeling of the year in question.Say, for instance, that we were to choose the year of my birth, 1971.The first activity would be to acquire materials specific to that year, the media division of our group would go around to all of the archival magazine stores, picking up anything from 1971.The media division would then go through all of the items, placing them in chronological order.The more items found would be the better.At the beginning of the New Year, all outside channels would be turned off and the media division would produce 'date specific' items for the perusal of the group.Hence, an item from March 7th, 1971, would not be available to look at until March 7th of the study year and so on.I believe that th…
