Interzone report of March 21st 1999
Hope you are all wellJ
Here are the new developments since last month :
1.The Interzone Coffee House: HI
http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/theinterzonecoffeehouse is going on fine. Many people have been writing there, and the atmosphere is really nice. The mail is huge (more than 200 E-mails) . Some poems have been gathered at : http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Crete/9445/coffee-house.html
The members got the Yahoo pager system, which allows to contact the others when they are connected, like ICQ. We now are 59 there.
Some are interested in sharing about Burroughs and Gysin devices. The club Nova Mobhttp://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/novamob made by El Gorgo is taking in charge the scientific aspect : (Jakes proposes to studdy the synchronicities through numbers). Have a look at both clubs . They got a life of their own.
2. Research in Interzone Academy :G
The exchanges with the French society here have not led to anything constructive during this month. I proposed some practicle work of teaching and translation to get to a more democratic spreading, but due to the lack of volunteers, it does not seem possible to go more ahead with them.
In another way, I have got some interesting contacts in this domain with students in philosophy in Poitiers, and a philosophic cafe, and with Roger Lanteri, who teaches GS in Nice under a humanist approach : http://www.interpc.fr/mapage/westernlands/roger1.html
I'm gonna see if the Uni in Poitiers could be interested in this : GS is not recognized here, as the first book of Korzybski has been published in October :"La Carte et le Territoire" : http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Crete/9445/Olivet-titre.html , published at the Editions de l'Eclat. My translation of Korzybski's seminar is the other one available in French. As a result, some friends and I are thinking about directions of work with other French speaking countries.

b. Desintoxication cure :h
I met a doc of Medecin du Monde here, an association of "French doctors" who takes care of homeless people in France, and they are not interested in anything different from what they do. Though he gave some contacts which I'm gonna meet next week, a street educator, and sent him a file on the project of cure and post-cure. It might interest people susceptible to give credits for it, if one is interested. So, let's wait and see.
About the files Dr Carlsson sent from Sweden, see :
More to come soon on the subject : I have not scanned the whole files yet.
3. Place for academy :J
Chantal, the friend here who proposes we take a place together, and I , are gonna visit one hotel and one inn next wednesday, and are studdying a formula to make it financially. We are in touch with an agent who only sells commercial buildings, and is aware of what is for sale in Poitiers and suburbs. So I'm gonna tell him more about what we look for when we meet him, and he might then be of a good advise.
Though the first step is to find a suitable place at a low price, so it might take some times. We might first rent the place for some months to see if we are able to make it financially without taking any engagement, and to put some money aside to buy something then.
So I keep on in this direction too and let you know what happens.
Christian from the groupCimagil says that we should put up in France a William Burroughs' fundation , as he is not known enough here and nothing has been done in this sense, in the frame of which we could get subventions. What do you think about it so far ? I'm gonna write to James Grauerholz about it and let you know what he thinks.
4. Dreamachine making :N
At the moment, I'm seeing in Poitiers to make exhibitions and lectures in bars. One is foresseen in May on the dreamachine, with the building up of one with people . So at the moment I'm prepairing the whole thing, centered about Brion Gysin and the dreamachine. Any idea, info, document, etc., welcomeJ .
Emmaus here sells 78 rpm record-players for $ 20 each here, and it still is easy to find. Vincent, the Zoner from Poitiers, is also watching thereJ
Some interesting URL on the Dreamachine : buy some at :http://www.davidwoodard.com/, programs to download for alpha waves and others: http://www.cerebrex.com and other devices (3 D glasses, etc.) at http://www.qualixdirect.com/html/crystal2.htm
5. CD making :UO
a) Several new things from this side : First Paulpaul.firstname.lastname@example.org has proposed during the lattest chat appointment to press the musics of Interzone for $ 2 for a CD : "CDs cost £1 each no matter how many you buy (1 or 100) , if I did purchase 100 i could probably get a small discount though."
Several of you are interested and have musics to send.
- For gathering them , Stevesray@EAST.ISI.EDU has a 80Megs of space to store them.and has just created a password-protected area for uploading mp3 files. He writes : " Izzy, please feel free to pass on this username and password for ftp'ing mp3 files onto ftp.lotsarock.com: username: mp3 password: interzone
- Rodchocktaw@teleport.com writes : " My site should be a portal for audio and video next week. Putting together deals to orginate programing off of my server. Go to my site and go to the "sitemap" click on the "strategies" icon and it will give you the concept paper on my new cyber channel. If you know of anyone in Europe that would like their programs or programming or audio streamed here let me know: http://www.movierent.com . All the best, Rod
So we got space to put the audio files: see with Paul, Steve and Rod
- Ramuntcho says he has a producer who might be interested if we got relevant recordings to propose.
b) The French group Cimagil :http://www.interpc.fr/mapage/westernlands/cimagil.html (a gang of buddies in Poitiers) has just had a CD pressed with their musics : you can hear 2 songs there, and buy it if you want to.
They are gonna give a concert in the Victor-Victoria soon.
6. Comix :C
