Happy Maybe Day!
As part of today's celebrations, The MGT is planning a Flying Lasagna Extravaganza for Maybe Day celebrations Next Year, July 23rd, 2010. This illuminated event may be celebrated locally, non-locally or multiversally, but the exact form of the celebrations exist now only in a maybe state. Help shape next year's festivities! Post your comments on what celebration of consciousness you would like to see happen on Maybe Day 2010.

"I would like to propose that the whole world may go stark staring sane, if people used the word "maybe" more often." - Robert Anton Wilson

Perhaps the US government should legalize marijuana on Maybe Day 2010.

Happy Belated Maybe Day!

Royal Academy of Reality's suggestion, seconded. And maybe we can make sure that by this time next year RAW attains Gnostic Sainthood in the OTO Mass. Maybe?

I will celebrate Maybe Day non-temporally and be grateful that the universe I perceive contains this web site.

RAW-A curmudgeony optimist, a guerilla ontologist extrordinaire, a connector of humane futures and collector of sombunall challenges to the poethora of status quos....He appears uncorporally risen...

I used to do bookings for Bob and I have videos of him that I want to put on line. If you can help let me know.
I'm a founder of the libertarian movement and a feminist. I blog at fr33 agents on these subjects. I'm currently writing an article on women Asian traders and their spiritual pilgrimage to a goddess in how it caused a communist government to liberalize. If you have any knowledge in these areas please share it with me.

Bob changed my mind. In a good way, mostly.

Bob may have liked. . .Garfunkel and Oates posted a new music video today called "Weed Card", about illnesses you need to get a card in California.

I'll make a lasagna with special herbs on Maybe Day... maybe.

Michelle said...

Maybe it could be 'maybe' day - with E-Primers for all. Maybe.

Count me in, anyway.

I am currently feeling compelled to create a new church, The Church Of The Holy Cow (Church of THC).
It is similar to Subgeniism, but without the sex,money and hate.
Protocols of the Elders of Goyim, the cattle rebel and maybe one day the Imoolinati might create peaceful grazing fields for all sacred cows. Join the Moovement? Contact me mancojoe@rocketmail.com
Our Holy Cow day will be April 1st every year so it don't clash with Maybe Day.

I will buy 23 used copies of my favorite RAW books (wish they could be new, but ...), make 23 copies of each of my cherished RAW cassettes, purchase 23 of my favorite RAW imspired bumperstickers ("Don't believe everything you think"), take them all to Prospect Park and sit for 23 minutes until I've given them all away.
Or do likewise in whatever organized (hmmm ...) celebration the management proposes (In Ireland? Santa Cruz? RAW's birthplace in Brooklyn?).
And if such an event were to occur, I'd love to hear readings of RAW's work, of Pound's and Joyce's and Leary's and any others that inspired the man who continues to inspire me.
And if there were a call to help with the organization of such an event: I have little cash (but some and would contribute what I could), fewer connections, and a less than inspired reading voice. But if there were I way I could help I would.
Would love for there to be such a celebration, but Prospect Park on my lonesome sounds good too.
I'll be checking back for further updates.
Definitely.

Maybe i would love to see a real government in action. Possibly, theoretically, just maybe id love to see a huge gathering of we the people of discord in a yet undisclosed place near bob's home. Hail Eris! ;)

joe said...

Also maybe on maybe day id sit on the capitol steps in austin texas and read out loud to all those walking past me my favorite quotes from The Illuminatus Trilogy and Quantum Psychology.
I also agree with above that i will provide anything that i have at my disposal to help with a "Highly" un-organized bake sale in santa cruz to raise money for bob's son. :)

freedon said...

I had no idea that bob had a son that was in need. I can't help since I'm broke but I would love to see someone write a bio of RAW. does anyone have contact info?

joe said...

Im working on it Freedon I've been away from the digital world for awhile and have just now found out about Grandbob's passing. I will do my best to search the digital world to find any info that may help me write a bio that isnt wiki-bullcrap. Granted that site contains some info worth using i still dont trust most of it unless i hear it from his family themselves. Hail Eris!

joe said...

It seems that the post has been deleted by the MGT :) but just incase the silly person comes back to this blog i want them to see this post. i read a post when i first came back to this blog that said they wanted to point out that RAW is WAR spelled backwards, well id like to point out to that ill informed human that grandbob's middle name is actually Edward he adopted his grandfathers name Anton as his middle name when he started writing. so in actuality his name spelled backwars is WE R ;)
Hail Eris and keep that golden apple rolling.

joe said...

To: The MGT. If you have a way to contact Christina i would enjoy a conversation with her about this and that :)

melsvu2 said...

Aren't we at war?
Against the status quo - ignorance - intolerance - fear - injustice ...
Well, anyway, I am ... at WAR and RAW was my recruiter. and no one - no one - had better weapons than Robert Anton Wilson.
(and, by the by Joe, there's a link on the blog homepage that says it gives the MGTs email address ... I haven't clicked it so can't verify its usefulness, but it might be a good route if you haven't already tried it)

joe said...

hey mel thanks for the info i didnt see the link. I was however being sarcastic about grandbobs initials, even though it is true his original middle name was edward :) I agree with you 1000% about the fact that no one had better weapons than him, knowledge truly is power and he had an abundance of it. :) Thankfully he shared it with the world and many of us listened and learned, but we need to use his teachings the right way. But Im certainly not trying to change your mind or the way you think only be informative. He once said in a lecture on quantum phyisics that we all have our own reality tunnel and only when we realize that and how to see outside of it can we understand and learn from others reality tunnels. Keep the lasagna flying my friend for we are all children of discord ;)

joe said...

lol I love the beautiful randomness of his page :) the link brings you back to the homepage of RAW :)

Wow, back in the early 90's, my friends and I created our own holiday inspired by RAW's writings called Universe Day. The date is May 23rd (5/23) and the purpose was to celebrate creative thought. Instead of exchanging gifts we exchanged neat ideas and exposed our minds to new and challenging info about the nature of the universe and our place in it. Glad to discover Maybe Day!

Lord Omar the 23rd said...

despite the fact bob's middle name is edwards is irrelevent. raw backwards is war for bob was in contact with Horus. Bob's universe was simultaniously aprehended. Bob had no choice in making the change. The change always happens. It's inflation(I'm not talking about finances)!
