Letter From The Editor - SMiles Lewis

 

Greetings Austinites (especially you Anonymous Anomalists),

Welcome to the inaugural issue of Austin-Para-Times, Central Texas' best source for Alternative Intelligence. I'm SMiles Lewis, your host and guide through the multiple worlds and possible paradigms explored herein.

Before we begin, let me answer a question on a lot of people's minds, "What exactly does 'PARA' mean?" Well ... strictly speaking:

para or par pref.

Beside; near; alongside: parathyroid. Beyond: paranormal. Incorrect; abnormal: paresthesia. Similar to; resembling: paratyphoid fever. Subsidiary; assistant: paraprofessional. From Dictionary.com

As "Austin Para Times" we are both Beyond and Beside the local mainstream media while necessarily sharing surface Similarities with them. We will seem both Parapolitically Incorrect and Parajournalistically Subsidiary because of our explorations into Para-Normal Realities. Para realities are by nature contrary to consensus reality.

So for you naif's and neophytes out there, fretting over the ontological status of these Paranoid Conspiracies and Paranormal Realities, don't you worry... everything contained herein is but a Similar (immitative), Subsidiary (lesser), politically Incorrect publication speculating Beyond the pale, existing Beside the mainstream. Our memes are already working on your subconscious - the Truth is a virus, according to Mtv. And they oughta know!

For you Seekers out there who know "sumbunall" these things are true, you just found your best local resource for all things Anomalous. We'll be analysing the information that matters: from scientific discoveries to their cultural implications, from Mind Matter interactions to Money Matters, from undiscovered wildlife to unidentified flying phenomena...

Within AustinParaTimes you will have safe haven to examine the realms of the Paranormal (Ghosts, UFOs, Forteana), the Parapolitical (Cover-Ups, Conspiracy - you know, "Business As Usual"), Parapsychology (ESP, Mind, Dreams), Paramilitary (Government/Military/Local Law Enforcement comingling & violating Posse Commitatus) and much more. We'll explore the Paradoxes and Paragons of various alternative Paradigms.

We at APT couldn't be more pleased with our Starting Lineup of talented writers and reporters here to ease you through the shock of WAKING UP in the Matrix.

  • -Mack White, local underground comics artist and parapolitical reporter, gives us much insight into how his conspiracy roots were laid. In "Dealey Plaza & The Dream" we see how the Paranormal and Parapsychological can mingle with the Parapolitical and radically transform the Paradigms of a child.
  • -Michael Ruppert, former LAPD narcotics investigator who uncovered CIA drug trafficking in 1977. "Oh Lucy! - You Gotta Lotta 'Splainin To Do" is a timeline of important events relevant to a complete understanding of the persons responsible for the September 11th trajedy. Indeed, this is Mr Ruppert's WAKE UP CALL to all Americans. I saw him give a fantastic presentation on his 911 Timeline in Kerrville just this past January.
  • -Steve Brudniak, artist, philosopher and Waking Life actor, interviewed by APT founder, publisher and reporter Russell Dowden. Steve and Russell chat on the nature of art, consciousness, Universe, freewill, Richard Linklater's newest film Waking Life and all points in between.
  • -Steven Mizrach, Adjunct Lecturer, Florida International University, Department of Sociology/Anthropology, reviews and dissects the new film Mothman Prophecies, the book its based on and the real life events in Point Pleasant, West Virginia circa 1966-1967. Truth IS stranger than fiction despite the parajournalist reputation of the book's legendary author, John Keel.
  • -Starchild, one of Austin's newest Sages. You may have heard the most recent Transmission from the StarChildMatrix radiating across the KVRX airwaves featuring Austin's own Parapolitical Investigator, Alex Jones. In this APT communique the StarChild explores how reality IS a Matrix and how Simulation is usurping the original.
  • -Daniel Hopsicker, author of Barry & 'the boys: The CIA, the Mob and America's Secret History, investigates the recent "suicide" of former Enron Vice Chairman Cliff Baxter. The Sugarland Sanction exposes how things are seldom as simple as they appear.

Also in this issue...

  • "Black panthers" verified in Lone Star State - CryptoZooKeeper Chester Moore investigates Big Cats in Texas. Learn about his outdoorsman's field investigations into out of place animals and unknown creatures.
  • Within & Without the Paranormal - Charles Edwards weighs in on the Paranormal's place in our everyday lives.
  • Training for Astronauts - Spin Doctor Jeb exclaims the joys of spinning for health and pleasure with his own facilitating invention.
  • SETLAB Chat: "Beam Me Up Scotty!" - Russell Dowden eXposes us to UFOs, ExtraTerrestrials and Alien Abductions from the comfort of his Radio Booth.
  • Waiting For Trains - APT gets the lowdown on Monteverde Films' latest short film (shot in NYC the week of 911) which deals with the first fleeting glimpses of a new American Civil War where Americans soldiers capture and execute fellow American citizens. The dark irony of the title's relevance to our Government's own plans to herd dissidents cross country on trains to FEMA camps is not lost on your humble Editor.
  • Govna Bush Lays Enron - Big surprise... documents show then Texas Governor George W. Bush helped further the business Agenda of Enron. Get ready... in the words of Michael Ruppert "Expect more terrorist attacks when the Bush Administration loses control of their Enron cover-up."

So, kick back, fasten your seat belt, open your mind; the next Knock Knock Knocking you hear at your door could be a JackBooted ThoughtCop or the Ghosts of our Constitution.
