Big House in a Tiny Box




Tan Son Nhut AFB in the 1960s. I may have driven right past this!

Forget your tilt-ups and pop-outs. This doubles the interior volume. I think it could have a pitched roof that splits down the middle under a pop-up center section.

The backstory about Lookout Mountain AFB in Topanga Canyon and the hippys is deeply interesting. It's now owned by Jared Leto.

Nobody excited by that one? Here's a bamboo home for an extended family:

Because I think that way, I make a lot of connection to Buckminster Fuller Dymaxion House rendered in bamboo instead of aluminum, for a more tropical climate.

Miles Mathis on that film unit.

Problem of reading him, though, is that without starting at beginning of those papers on social ills, one misses points made. Cumulative.

He leads one on a path, but it’s fun.

The more one has read on ones own previously, the more so with him.

We call him “the Committee”, but not reading him is like missing out on a great periodical of old.

An entry on thunderbolts.info and Rational Wiki. Interesting. Pi equals 4 and JFK faked his own death? I guess you do have to ease into that.

Is this germane: http://thunderbolts.info/forum/phpBB...p=26723#p27453

What did you think of the trailer?

Take what you can use. From beginning.

One tends to be on lookout via questions raised ever after. Thus, while conclusions are one thing, those questions are consistently good. Sharpened tools.

It’s fast reading. (The science and math Qs I haven’t bothered with as much)

“Proving” truth of a story at stake. Not his version, but the ones you’ve previously accepted. And then were built upon.

History is misdirection. Ignore red flag and focus on cute puppy.

As with thread on media. I’m surprised anyone bothers with NPR. Not just the latest “accused of not making a pass at ugly women and removed” crap. I quit them for good in 1994 when they ignored the world in favor of OJ Simpson (manufactured) while our economy was shredded and sent overseas.

Start with the murder of John Lennon. If that whets appetite, go back to beginning. (Diving in at halfway point won’t work).

The stated topic is not always what one gleans. It’s the many asides contained therein. Could be far off path. (Taste will be to sheer volume of history and associated read over a lifetime). If one winds up confronting what he has been assured is conspiracy or is loony . . . keep at it.

The “media” is what some want us to hear. Paid shills. Public Relations management.

The rest is what’s interesting. The “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain” stuff. Those who give up on him are upset by familiar narrative tossed out. Too far afield. A premise that can’t be stomached.

To the contrary, its now easier to see why some things previously baffling, aren’t. Why would the Queen knight Jagger, et. al, when stated premise was destructive? (Many examples of this sort).

The really outrageous or improbable are simply means to knock some off the trail. Use his tools on him. You’ll see the joke. Tools and training on offer.

His detractors use flimsy pretext. Not convincing. Not worthwhile. You’ve the perspicacity (and then some).

Consider it fun. Background.

And, yeah, the manufactured housing is cool.

One comes up with his own questions. Our libraries have been purged of much quality 19th and 20th Cen books. And, virtually no one reads. They consult their babysitter (phone). So what will be the effect when Google (and similarly controlled) eliminate all pre-1960 images of white western man’s accomplishments?

We couldn’t have made it to the Moon without a couple of minority women? (What sources can you cite).

Real time. It’s whats at stake. (And not at all the first instance).

Call it, “elites at war”.

And question why his site is up.

Have fun

Take what you need and leave the rest.

Good questions are as important as good answers.

History Is A Weapon

No doubt that the movers and shakers are moving and shaking right now. Saudi Arabia is fixed, North Korea is being fixed, Iran is on schedule by the Veteran's Day parade.

I'll have a look but frankly there's not enough hours in the day to follow what the media are not telling us.

Link shows quite a bit of propaganda. Stuff I’m familiar with from way back (one degree is in history). Zinn or Chomsky or others are misdirection classics. They’re now mainstream.

Frances Stonor Saunders book on art & the CIA was Miles’ starting point. And forms basis of first essay.

She seems more accessible that Miles Mathis. Came on the scene around the turn of the century.

My suspicion is that they were trying to get out in front of an organic (pun!) cultural movement, the hippys; and all they got for their trouble was Yippies running a pig for President.

I have a friend who's a publisher and he just got back from a conference is Wash, D. C. about the Kennedy assassination. Some people are unable to move on.
