I'm sure if you get to PDX we can arrange some meetups.  :evil:

Tel and Nigel, I'm all types of keen! I'll stay in touch and try to sort times.
If sheep entrails could in any way be related to the weather, i.e. sheep trails only originate where it rains, then you could use it as an accurate model for discerning what the weathers going to be like. Either, sheep shit makes it rain, or raining makes sheep shit. Sheep don't shit "randomly" sheep shit after they eat, it doesn't rain "randomly" it rains after water collects in the atmosphere.

Sounds like a thing to do, I'm in if you're passing through the Cleveland/Akron Ohio area!

Keen as!

The New England area is fairly target rich, and if you're "serious" about interviews, I'd be willing to give you a couple of hours.

Yeah, I'm really taking this on as project that I'm serious about. I want to come out the other side with something engaging, entertaining and accessible  that explains what Discordia authentically means to today's Discordians. I would really appreciate you taking the time.

Of course entirely depending on where you're travelling to, but if you're in the Netherlands I'll do my best to meet up, and if you need a place to crash you're absolutely welcome (though I'm about a 2h train ride removed from popular places such as Amsterdam or Utrecht--but the city up in the North where I live is in fact pretty cool as well and has a cheap connection to Bremen Airport).


That would be damn fine Trip, thanks.

Dingo, how long until you take the trip?

Would you be open to suggestions?

Because im thinking that semi-open style interviews could provide the best material and it could even be analyzed in a qualitative manner which id be willing to do, and if you manage to make at least 8 interviews this could really become a nice project.

I'm super open to suggestions.

I was thinking for interviews to have a recorder taking things down as I go, which would work well for both discussions in meatups and in one on one discussions. I have been playing with the idea of usig a camcorder but I'm worried that wouldn't serve very well in a group situation.

What do you mean by semi-open style? I'm interested in the idea of analysing in a qualitative style but I'm not sure at this stage what that would look like. And if you're interested in this project and willing to be part of it, I'm super super passionate about getting involvement from anyone keen to play along.

As far as film goes, to film 8 interviews seems to me to be really doable.

I keep hearing about how many Discordians are in Brazil, so that would be really great. I was going to see if I could make contact with the blogger who's apparently a big Discordian figure.

I honestly never considered this as a possibility. I'll get onto a bit of a hunt to see what's available. Thanks.
