Stone Ape #91: When Bees Discovered Socialism [July 10, 2014]

Tom and Heron take questions from listener Paul. They dive deep into dream experiences and dream interpretation. Tom tries some deconstruction of Heron's language. What's the deal with information theory and evolution? The county fair provides some indications of humanity. What happens if Tom becomes an American? Tom takes Heron to task on individuals versus groups. Tom finds Bob again. Heron is changing his pipe. Regulation has some curious problems.  [ MP3 ]

Stone Ape #90: San Jose Police and Invaded Nations: Happy July 4th [July 3, 2014]

Tom explains some DJ Master T science. [Editorial note: As with many things in the original edition of Cyberia the naming is incorrect. It is in fact 5-MeO not MAO something like Steve Jobbs (sic).] Heron provides some narration to the comic book project and his early experiences with computers. Tom hasn't alienated a group of listeners. Some experiences have impacted Tom's life. They discuss the monopoly of Amazon versus men getting together. Heron starts a topic on people who have problems dealing with stress. Tom explores death as a natural part of life. These dirty CEOs with throat cancer. Heron needs to fight for his ideas. Saying long numbers sucks. Facebook has been manipulating you, duh. Tom takes a different direction to his Australia departure to show the multiple dimensionality to the whole experience. They explore angry people and how they exist in the professional world. How about that different narrative of Fox News? They wander into adoption as a topic. They discuss moving frequently and consider Independence Day.  [ MP3 ]

Stone Ape #89: The Audience Voted and They've Picked a Winner [June 26, 2014]

Heron has ticked off a life goal thanks to some listener intervention. The best source for Terence McKenna is Lorenzo Hagerty's Psychedelic Salon (http://matrixmasters.net/salon/). How good is the primary access to experiences? Tom talks about the escape trajectory. How do we communicate? Tom explores Heron's uncharted life and talks about the Mushroom Boy now embodied in a project (http://github.com/barbalet/mushroom). They rap on divergent populations versus the media. Nutbush City Limits and Kate Smith roll on. Heron's favorite wine glass is no more. Spiritual Communities contained a little note. They talk about when people care and it involves geographic movement. Heron needs to create new rituals. Heron returns to his experience from the week following a discussion on the smell of old pipes. Heron identifies that Tom has alienated a number of listeners. From a brief spell on alcoholism they wander into DVDs. Russian Roulette is a good metaphor for living as an adult. YouTube is better than reading. Tom raps on ancestry as a gateway to the sublime nature of intelligibility. Are there common threads in Tom's work? Tom throws out a fan demonized topic. Going to the DMV is a good way to find language monkeys. You get Heron's eyes for five minutes at most. Heron has no words of wisdom.  [ MP3 ]
