Help a writer. This is why the Net is groovy.

Here’s a confession: I’ve never made it through the Illuminatus trilogy, despite trying several times, despite it being a canonical text (or maybe symptom) of the conspiracy prone, paranoid culture that led also to Gravity’s Rainbow and, say, Dick Cheney. Now its co-author, cult hero Robert Anton Wilson, is apparently sick and poor, and close to being evicted.

That’s really not what you ever want to hear when you’re a writer. But here’s where the Internet comes in. A plea for funds, rent money and then some, is going around the Net, led by uberblog Boing Boing. A day later, it looks like he’s in better shape. Go Internet. This is where the community flexes its muscles for good, instead of just hype.

  1. Hi folks

    I’m in the process of looking to buy some GHD straighteners for my daughter and I have seen them online at a reasonable price at Jason Shankey and I have ordered stuff from them before such as a face cream, hair tools and Wella products.

    Has anyone used these HGDs before?

    thanks a lot or your helpl
