I believe people should have the right to die in certain extenuating situations where the act of keeping someone alive becomes "inhumane", it seemed really gruesome that she had to starve to death but if she was brain dead I hope she didn't feel it.

hm I sounded a bit ambiguous. Bladerunner is one of my favorite movies of all time, and I don't understand why the critics all hated it, I love that movie. So I guess i'm into that stuff and I liked the book.

haven't read either one. I just finished hard boiled wonderland and the end of the world by haruki murakami .  if you're into cyber punk sci fi neuromancer/bladerunner type of stuff then you'd probably like it.

he's the main character in what used to be my favorite comic book, written by Neil Gaiman and illustrated by a bunch of different people, most famous is the cover art by dave mckean who was a pioneer in using photoshop to make art with computers. Reading it was never the same after I went to elan though, i'd heard too much about it "feeding into my image". Anyway if anyone collects the series i've got almost the whole collection, some pretty rare and all first edition, in a collection thats gathering dust who knows where (the box not the comics, they're in baggies).

all plans are dropped. I'm dropping out of school at the end of this year and moving to boston to find work, scared shitless because ive been in school straight for almost 20 years trying to make something happen that just wont and been in the same midwest town almost as long. For anyone who cares my grandpa died last week and I broke off my engagement. Elan doesn't seem like it was so hard anymore, real life sucks more.

So I finally got one of those mySpace accounts online ... 0309085312

I try to focus on the side of myself there thats not depressed about being in elan, my other interests,etc. I don't have many pictures up yet (my scanner broke) but I have a few from home visits and stuff that i'll put up (as soon as the scanner's fixed) as well as some of what I do now (I was a photography major in college).

wow thats so awesome. For christmas my parents sent me an ornament of a mouse, it was made out of cornhusks and had two pins stuck into it to make the eyes (kind of a sad reference to a gift I gave my mom when I was little, I liked mice -- probably from watching tom and jerry-- and used a 4-year olds life saving of pennies to buy her an ornament  for christmas. I thought it was a mouse, but it was actually a pig, so I worked very hard to straighten the tail out before giving it to her. They still hang the "pigmouse" on the tree every year). Someone went through my shit and pulled out its eyes, in order to find those pins and get me shot down. I bet that got them an extra piece of pie in the desert dichotomy, those fatties!

how the heck did you guys get pictures of yourselves inside of the elan school? I have one picture of myself the whole time I was there, I think it was for department head of the week or something and it was a polariod.

Hi Syn thanks for putting me on here. Matt I got an email from you and have been slow responding because i've been going through your old posts so I don't ask you something you've already said before. I was wondering about the skunk thing you alluded to on the other board? I also got an email from Arthur Warshawsky saying he'd be willing to talk to me but I don't know who he is, and he asked about legal issues so i thought i'd consult a lawyer before emailing him so i'd have some answers besides the obvious, that it is my intent to respect your privacy and not decontextualize or manipulate things into an agenda. This is kinda bassackwards way of starting things off but basically I think it would do some good to have some of these stories recorded before they are forgotten. I originally wanted to travel and get people on tape, but it might be easier (and put more people at ease to remain anonymous unless otherwise wanted) to record interviews with people (could be done over the phone or in person...I live in Illinois, have a car). I've got skills and a forum to do this in (i'm in a program called "narrative media", I could actually do a project like this for credit), and honestly its the only project i'm interested in doing now that would have any consequence. Does anyone have any further ideas on how to shape a project like this? I'll tell you i'm more interested in things concerning character, how characters (us) were shaped there, changed there, where they went from there on, than doing something thats pro/anti elan. The truth is sometimes I vascillate between what I think about it, and then I wonder if im doing that because i'm brainwashed, because something was missing in me before I ever went there that disallowed me to think straight, or if its only in peoples frame of mind that an experience takes on connotations of being good or bad [a good example of where I think of this happening would be the book "the sea and poison" by a japanese writer name starts with s... last name endo? I think? About the moral rationalizations of doctors who performed vivisections on american pows during wwII]. Then I really start talking myself around in circles and then I realize i'm talking to myself, and that it will never go anywhere without other people's opinions. I'd love it it people wrote on here so that other people knew what you were thinking too. I also have an email [email protected] that you can write me that way.I hope there are some people out there who are interested in this. For the future the website is mine, currently it has a stupid php test on it but i'm working to put a site up, i'll let you know when it's posted.

Elan School / stand ups and VRs

can I ask what a hair cut is? I dont think we called them that when I was there, we just had VRs, TTs, Blasts, flaming VRs, GMs and the Ring. There wasn't any hands on allowed except in the ring. People were always getting booked for "touching each other on accident", particularly males and females but even if you did it to another female you were supposed to book yourself incase someone else saw you and booked you first, then the penalry would be worse.

I got shot down for razors, I also got shot down for falling asleep on the post which wasn't true, I remember every minute of those hellish nights during the ice storm when we were sleeping in the dining room and it was pitch plack, there was nothing to look at besides the dull red of the exit sign. It was a long time to stare at one thing and I needed to go to sleep so bad but everyone else who was strength was refusing to relieve me so I kept pinching my arm and had my head tilted back so I could see out of two slits at the bottom of my eyes. After all this effort the next morning the power got turned on, i got shot down and IT FELT LIKE A VACATION!!!
