It’s our first annual holiday show, with plenty of Christmas cheer (more or less) from our studios in downtown Joshua Tree. Were you good this year? Well then maybe Santa will bring you Pentagon proof of UFOs and maybe Santa is an alien too, why not? Why not gather ’round the festive Joshua tree with all the colorful insects and whatever hidden in the dead needle-tipped branches and join us, this…

The Job I Want

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 22:32:14 -0800

jessicacabot:

I’ve been looking for jobs online lately and this is the first posting I’ve found that really resonated with me. 

“Are you sitting around waiting for a mission in life? Feeling helpless as you’re tossed and turned by events? Helplessly reacting to the deeds of the of the evil doers instead of taking action to put our civilization back on course? Well then you might have what it takes to join us, join us in this great mission to restore morality and human decency to our sickly species to drive the evil ones and the vile opportunists from the agora of the public realm, to aid the rapid transmutation and transformation of our world from a fossil fuel dependent weather wrecking nightmare of never-ending burning summer and fire and destruction and pain and boredom. Join us in the salvation of our home planet and the salvation of humanity. We’ll get those sleaze bags yet and we’ll put them in the pit of despair. If you’d like to enquire about this mission or the film rights drop us a line.” – The Voice of the Desert

Five Things: Desert Oracle

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 23:17:12 -0700

The Desert Oracle is the aptly-coined “Voice of the Desert,” a pocket-sized field guide that recalls something of a mix between a FoxFire Book, the Farmer’s Almanac and Weekly World News. Ken Layne, writer, desert enthusiast and brains behind The Oracle, also leads Campfire Stories at our Palm Springs waypost every first Thursday of the month, where he regales eager listeners with tales of desert beasts and ancient legends. Gather round — next one’s September 7. In the meantime, a glimpse into the Desert Oracle’s library. 

Five Books In Every Desert Lover’s Library

By DESERT ORACLE

People have been writing about the desert since the days of Abraham, so there are plenty of books on the topic. If you demand great writing with your desert education, start with these five essential books. You can find used editions in many desert towns, or buy them at your local bookseller or national park gift shop.

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 13:37:40 -0800

CR: Can you tell me about the thinking behind using the star? I was reminded of your Clockwork Orange ‘circle’ cover for Penguin. Here, the shape also informs the ‘logotype’ used on the cover – can you tell me about that?

JB: We are, wherever possible, using the ★ for the title. The original idea came out of discussions with Bowie about ways of representing the album, so this is very much his creativity and his direction. But the discussion was partly prompted by a conversation I had with William Burroughs when I met him, which I have told a thousand times for namedrop effect, but did actually finally give me something usable for this project 25 years later.

I asked him about the future of typography and he said that letterforms would go back to hieroglyphs, similar to the ancient Egyptians. You can actually see it happening with the emoji, they are becoming very common with people creating whole narratives out of them, as well as using them in everyday communication. Will there be a time when we use only these to express thought?

Blingee, the beloved (?) garbage-gif processor we regularly abused for most of a decade (!) at http://wonkette.com, is now being sent to Hell where it always belonged. Here are some of my favorite Blingees that showed up in the first page of Google image results for “Blingee Wonkette.” Jim Newell made some of these, I made some of them, and Pareene probably made the “best one,” whichever is the “best one.” RIP Blingee, RIP charmingly dumb old Internet of the early 21st Century. One day soon, an app called “Blingee” will appear, I’m sure, and it will allow wealthier people to somehow use poor people to clean your roof or whatever, remotely.

“Every day I turn on the radio in the morning, I hear an X-Files story, or I pick up the paper and I see an X-Files story.”

The X-Files creator Chris Carter, today.

(Same goes for me, although I don’t have any financial role in the X-Files business. )
