<Can money pay for all the days I lived awake but half-asleep?>
Travis from summer of 1994 would like to add:
"Jullian" didn't eat all of his lunch and it was fished out of trashcan. Yummy.In case you were wondering (and you probably weren't), I found a bunch of my old notebooks when I wrote when I was 11 and 12. Neat stuff. Full of drawings and warped scribblings about 2nd graders in summer camp. The drawings are superb and I may scan some (and manipulate them with Photoshop). Of course, all I was looking for was an unused folder. But, my, how I love old drawings and notes to myself. At one point in one of the many notebooks there are detailed notes on how to kill Barney. I was pretty hung up on that after playing the Wolfenstein-3D patch "Barneystein" and reading the .TXT's that came with it: an article about how Barney teaches kids to be conformists (taken from alt.barney.die.die.die, I believe), an 80 page novella about Barney as the Antichrist literally taking over the world (one of the coolest stories I've ever read), and a choppy 20 page sequel written by the programmers of Barneystein. Cool. On some other thing I made in the 7th grade there's this cryptic quote scrawled: "A succession of loud, shrill screams forces me violently back." Where is that from??? It's so familiar but I have no idea where I quoted it from. Pretty creepy anyway. On the same notebook is the chorus of "Head Like A Hole", the phrase "h/p/a/v" (hacking, phreeking, anarchy, virii), the original and true origin of the acronym PHUX, the X-Files logo, and a list of 8 BBS's I used to call:
"Shau" has a juicebox with the namebrand "Vita."
"Julian" says "I'll Meditate in the computer."
"Justin" says "He told me to meditate in my butt."
"Curtis" is "The storebought muffin man."
Hell's Kitchen House of UsherThose boards were so fun. I was co-sysop on MLPOI (some of my earliest graphic artwork promoted the board), a moderator on WMAGS/TFS and the very last caller on HoU! This is way over your head but it delights me. The last two boards were struck out because they went down. Assassin's Guild was an underground warez hq apparently. I heard that Assassin, who ran it, went to jail. The other one was only up part time, and then not at all. I've always had above average affection for my 'digital' side, I guess.

6/9/94Your guess is as good as mine. Cool, I also found the play I began to co-write with my friend Tim a few years ago. I miss that kid, he was r4d. I need to give him a call. Along with EVERYBODY. What is wrong with me. Le sigh. Was that Rebekah I saw on the subway last night? Sounded just like her and she was Asian (maybe Korean) but didn't look exactly like she did last Easter. She was talking with some other Asians who were comparing their Chinese language to her (X) language.
Summer really is no fun,
Umber walls imprison me in camp, poison
Malts make me croak
Many brats crawl on me like a Barney doll in a half price store,
Eluding them becomes a hobby,
Running to a house I lock the door and sleep
Travis' songScrawled on another piece of paper is a drawing with a caption on the side: I am a good ORAL SPELLER. I've been to spelling bee 1 time, and refused to go 2 times. (This is true.)
going to Mississippi, going to have a good time,
M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I! Yee!If you can't spell it just give it a try,
Gonna get hungry for some Cajun food,
Sweet corn-bread and some Gumbo too!
Jam, Jam, Here comes the Man. - Michael Jackson
knows the most about Spam! Chewin' an Max and
Re-lax'n on cool, shootin' some B-ball out a-some
school, when a coupla guys were up to no good, started
makin' truba in my hood! 'Got in one lil' fight
and my mom got scared and said "I have a dream
living inside of me, 'cause it's a 90's kinda world and
I'm glad I got my girl!
So 2 legit 2 legit Im gonna quit! AAAGH!
I think I'll use capitalization on this page this month! Anyway, watch for further updates on both of my sites.
