You should view the world as a conspiracy run by a very closely-knit group of nearly omnipotent people, and you should think of those people as yourself and your friends. – Robert Anton Wilson

Dear Friends of Bob,

ROBERT ANTON WILSON DAY
Daisy writes . . .
"We've discovered in the UK that Bob may just be the Wizard Key - that if you can connect up folk whose lives have been changed by his work, amazing things will happen. #RAWDAY will be an opportunity to turn on, tune in and Find the Others. I look forward to meeting you there!"

And from Rasa, Christina and Olga,
Lots of love and lasagna to you all!
We hope to see you in Santa Cruz!
A little bonus news from Rasa . . .
A year after RAW rode the great lasagna over Monterey Bay, Maybe Logic documentary maker Lance Bauscher gave me some outtakes (and a few intakes) from his project so I could make a small video, something enticing for the home page of the update I was building of the rawilson.com website. I put together a five minute video, and as was the custom, I made it into a cool-looking Flash animation. I used to love Flash animation, until Apple went to war with Adobe. In any case, for a number of years I've wanted to put the video into an HD format and upload it to YouTube. I finally got around to it. Many thanks to Lance for the video, Bastian for the music, Brummbaer (may he rest in hyperspace) for the fractal backgrounds I added to the HD version, and special thanks to Bob for always having something mind-expanding to say.
