Saturday links

Nuts, I really wanted to know what Timothy Leary was campaigning for. 

Oz Fritz says you should keep a record of your incidents of synchonicity and your dreams. This morning I dreamed I got an interesting "Timonthy Leary for president" email. I was trying to read the list of the campaign committee members at the top of the email when I woke up. I had planned to share the email with you guys, but when I awakened I realized that would not be possible. Sorry.

Nice piece on David Carr. Good quote from Carr, "We all walk this earth feeling we are frauds. The trick is to be grateful and hope the caper doesn’t end any time soon.” Via someone on Twitter I don't know.  Her name is Amanda.

Radio documentary about William Burroughs, narrated by Iggy Pop. 

Download Ruby, a the "first cyberpunk radio drama."  On Twitter, Ian "Cat" Vincent says, "Free download: the first, coolest & Robert Anton Wilson-influenced cyberpunk radio drama, Ruby."
