More Media Sickness
Apologies to anyone who tuned into the 23rd of August edition of 'Future Fantastic' hoping to see the Association of Autonomous Astronauts. Despite being approached by enthusiastic members of the BBC staff (and spending a cold afternoon filming), all of the footage was edited out of the final cut without any forewarning. A more substantial analysis will appear in the next issue of 'Ad Astra!'.
Reality is what you can get away with
Prometheus Rising is Robert Anton Wilson's book about the late Dr Timothy Leary's ideas. So, well worth checking out, basically. And more fun to do it with a bunch of other cool people, too. Well! Late October sees the start of a FREE fortnightly discussion and working group about the book, ideas and exercises. For more information write (including an SAE) to Emily c/o 56A Infoshop, 56A Crampton Street, London SE17 3AE.
The 1996 Anarchist Bookfair
Takes place on Saturday the 19th of October from 10AM-8PM. As well as the usual collection of hard cases, historians and hippies there should be a fine selection of zany zinesters this year. Turbulence will be sharing a stall with the A.A.A. and some other reprobates. The venue is Conway Hall, Red Lion Square, London WC1 and entrance is FREE.
