Getting back to doing this thing

Ack, it’s been a while. I have to get back into this podcast thing and post non-podcast curious stuff. So, I’m going try and get an episode up this week “In Search of George Fletcher” about a letter I found sent to my great grandfather in 1924.

1993 in the studio by accident

I went up to meet my friend who was recording these guys and then they left and came back all hammered and wanted to jam. I was drunk and high too. My friend said get in there and play drums and so I did. I had never played with headphones without seeing the payers and this came out okay. Brushes no less.

 

iTunes goofiness

If you haven’t been able to download or find Mr. Haney’s Truck on iTunes, it’s because something went goofy with the RSS feed. So, when it’s fixed I’ll post here.

Greg Bishop and Adam Gorightly

The long-delayed Mr. Haney’s Truck returns with an interview with two mavens of the curious, the kooky and the esoteric.

We talk about Discordianism and it’s maybe link to the Big Lebowski, pirate radio and other stuff. I wanted to have these guys on because I think they are smart and interesting and outside the mainstream without being goofy.

Greg Bishop is an author, freelance writer and podcaster whose podcast Radio Misterioso features conversations with smart, forward thinking people in the areas of UFOs, consciousness and whatever strikes his fancy that he think is interesting.

His latest book is, It Defies Language, a collection of essays from the now defunct UFO Mystic. His other books include Project Beta: The Story of Paul Bennewitz, National Security, and the Creation of a Modern UFO Myth and Weird Califonia: Your Travel Guide to California’s Local Legends and Best Kept Secrets.

His podcast can be heard live on Sunday nights at 11pm Pacific Time on the Radio Misterioso website. It can also be downloaded from iTunes.

Adam Gorightly is also an author and writer who chronicles conspiracies and the arcane. According to his site,

Adam Gorightly has been chronicling fringe culture for two decades. His articles have appeared in nearly every ‘zine, underground magazine, counter-cultural publication, and conspiratorial website imaginable. Bringing a mischievous sense of Prankster-Discordianism to the zany world of fringe culture, once Gorightly connects his dots, readers are plunged into alternative universes which forever alter their view of ‘reality.’

Gorightly’s latest is Historia Discordia and he has written other books like Caught in the Crossfire: Kerry Thornley, Oswald and the Garrison Investigation and The Prankster and the Conspiracy: The Story of Kerry Thornley and How He Met Oswald and Inspired the Counterculture.

Adam used to have a podcast and I found the archive

I love these guys. We really didn’t get into the meat of their ouvre, but I wanted to have them on because I think they’re two smart folks that bring intelligence to what is called the “fringe” which I see as a pejorative term.

These guys mention names you may not know but if you read their books, you’ll get it.

I’m also thinking of changing the name of the podcast to, “Right, Right.”

 

Oh I also mention the name “Wilson”  and I meant Robert Anton Wilson
