Flashback: Guide to Para Texas

In late 2001, in the wake of September 11th, a new publication was born out of fear for our Republic and a need to communicate the weirdness of post-911 life to our Central Texas friends, family and neighbors.Austin Para Times issue 3 cover

From early 2002 to mid 2003 I was editor of the Austin Para Times news-zine. We covered a variety of paranormal and parapolitical issues and topics.

I left the magazine to finally start my non-profit community lending library, the Anomaly Archives.

In issue #3, I wrote an article as my alter-ego Jackson Valient (with co-writer Yogina Bare … another pseudononymous author and fellow fringe explorer) that serves as an introduction to all things anomalous here in Central Texas.

I offer it here for archival purposes and as part of my personal introduction to our new audience within the LOWFI network.

Ed Hall

 

I actually shot some of the footage for this video. Over the years several close friends of mine repeatedly shot film and video footage of ED HALL – one of my all time favorite bands. They produced several albums (below) but disbanded, reforming later in a completely new guise as PONG. See links below to past Ed Hall Reunion shows and more!

38th annual National UFO Conference – 30 second TV spot

This 30 second TV spot for the ill-fated 38th National UFO Conference aired a few times on Time Warner cable before being pulled due to the cancellation of the conference because of the events of September 11th, 2001. 

This 30 second TV spot for the ill-fated 38th National UFO Conference aired a few times on Time Warner cable before being pulled due to the cancellation of the conference because of the events of September 11th, 2001.

The 30 second TV spot featured an animated version of the official poster (left) by Mack White. This rare television spot featured one of the first big hits by local Austin band PONG (formerly the infamous Ed Hall), Blues Underground – a song that had lyrics such as, “The Knights of Templar, They Run The Game, They’ve Got The Money, And All The Fame, Long Ago Across The Sea, The Invented Monopoly!”

RE: my Vyzygoth brain fart RECALLED 

Hi Vyz,The other day I was relistening to our interview and as I anticipated, I recalled what it was I was going to say that led to my memory-lapse / brain-fart:

Stealth / Viral marketing – NLS conference, library who used itI was mentioning the day job conference I went to in Portland, Maine … what I was going to say was that, one of the speakers was from an urban library that was conducting an advertising campaign to get minorities into the local libraries for computer training. In her speech she said that, they had even resorted to paying a viral / stealth marketing company to do some “less than legal” activities towards this end.

So I was just trying to bring up another real world example of strange-bedfellows regarding the arenas of viral/stealth capitalism.
