I had a nice long talk with John Fuller last night & that spurred on the desire to resume this "Where are they NOW ?" website & gather some memories & pictures for posterity.

Seth, who was your buddy that once had the place on 5th & Howard that you stayed at across from the infamous vacant lot?

Are you talking about Stuart Zachery?
Yep, thanks. All I could remember was his name started with an "S". I was telling T the story about the sushi moment at the Venice circle with you & I & Stuart.


Mark de LA says
We would probably need a one with a boxing ring nearby. Fight Club with Sushi - now there's a concept for the bourgeoisie.

Yes, a classic scene, indeed !  ... quite a bit of Saki ... followed by the intrusion of a finger in my nose ... followed by my fist in your face ... followed by being ejected from the restraunt
The ironic & unintentional serendipity of the significant & usual finger to the movement of your head positioning your nose in the exact right place was cosmick!
oh kewl ... blame the victim ... that poor snoze obviously beckoned ... seduced your finger ... it didn't really have a choice at all, did it ...
I had no intention of shoving your nose onto my finger. I thought you acknowledged that later after the brawl. That's not what would occur for me to do then drunk, angry or otherwise except right now. Obviously you were too drunk to realise that then & anchored the moment in your memory to justify hitting me in the nose.

try writing true sentences.
Try removing your head out of your ASS:

Well, my friend, "intention" is a weird animal.  Fact is your finger did intrude into my nose quite uninvited.  It is impossible, and useless, to try to objectively talk of something quite so subjective as intention, decades after a drunken episode.   Sure, I can almost feel how my soft and vulnerable tissue was quite irresistible to your desire to probe ... just like your arrogant jaw was a force beckoning the thrust of my fist.   I do so love writing true sentences ... you really should try it. 

The Sushi and beer would be quite welcome ... your place or mine?

Mark de LA says
For our dear friend John Fuller who may very soon face operation to remove a collapsed lobe of his lung from lung cancer:

Intercessory Prayer

Spirit of your soul, working watcher,

May you bring upon your wings

My soul’s entreating love

To the man of earth entrusted to your care,

That united with your might

My entreaty ray forth help

To the soul it seeks in love.

~

First (after developing the inner calm that any prayer

requires), we picture the friend we want to pray for. We

surround the image in light and warmth. This is to make

sure the forces arrive where they are intended. That is

why ancient prayer formulae often begin with an elaborate

address. For this prayer, the personal connection is the

bridge.

Then we turn to the guardian angel of the other, and

speak the prayer. “Spirit of your soul” means: Oh, Angel

of that human soul entrusted to you, Watcher over my

friend! We offer up our warmth of heart as a force which

the angel can then enhance and carry to the beloved.



Mark de LA says
I spoke to John this morning.  He was feeling quite sick & hadn't begun the operation & was looking forward to chemo for a couple of weeks to shrink the problem in the lobe of his lung so that it could be removed without injuring the containing tissue. I will be sending him a warm fuzzy of comfort as often as I can.

It took them ~ 37 years, but now they have a website: http://developingenvironments.org/

The website & Facebook Community is much more developed now.  I see very little of the original people left. Probably a good thing.  Project 2 was real. A little bit smaller than the illusions brought to us by the miracle of the Internet - just emerging at the time - & the cellphone selfie generation of today. Sill it was an extract & model of what was outside - art imitating reality & reality imitating art.

Hi Mark.  A few notes:  My website is http://www.thresholdmodel.com
The automatic Human Jukebox was Grimes Posnikov.  He passed away. There was an article about him in the Chronicle, do not know when.
The guy with the junk downstairs who moved upstairs is Andy Taylor.  He moved to his own warehouse space in the Mission district. 
Photos are of me and George Palms, in upper-right photo, raising the 24 ft sail-mill I made from dumpster finds.  We raised it atop the building.  It stood for a few weeks.  I took it down fearing the law.  Dirty Pierre dumped its remains without warning.  George is the one we evicted and then we celebrated with an orgy.  I liked him.
