From 2008, he was addressing pandemic viruses. Contemporary discussion. A caller called it "molecular husbandry" instead of "gain of function." Even referring to China.

That, of course, is where I got the idea.

That line is classic!

The Churches keep track.

When they found out that Japanese was spoken in my house, they started sending Japanese women. They acted like they knew the spousal unit. Hahaha!

I get calls all the time from alleged car dealers wanting my 12-year old low mileage Toyota.  I tell them I will swap it for a new Land Cruiser if they will pay all the taxes and transfer fees.  They go away for a couple of days.

For a time some religious outfit came around.  I never figured out what they were, but they would send two women to the door and two men would wait at the bottom of the stairs.  At the time I had Bosnian friends and could mimic their accent pretty well.  The woman would start their pitch and I'd shout down to the men, "How much for women?  How much this one?"
That would usually keep them away for about a month.



7th Dayers liked to send me a couple of Latinas. The white women stopped. Yes, their apparent husbands were out on the driveway.

Maybe someone was nagging him. I get calls all the time. I add 25% to my house's value to shut them up. "Yes, I will sell, here's my price, send me docs, I'll call you when I get them."
Exactly! We used to get calls every spring/early summer about our rental property in town (side by side duplex) it was always a broken English accent too (Indian) so I would do what I did when bidding on jobs for those stinky garbage people and give them an outrageous at the time number. They would do a sort of laugh-smirk and that would be that. When we moved and sold it, it sold for 495. 5k less than what I told those assholes on all those calls.

I hope she's enjoying the money.   :)

On one of the later shows, Dark Matter or MITD there is an episode where near the beggining of the show Art says, implies, that he is selling the compound/the place in Pahrump (Compound - my word) He throws out the price of 5Mill as he describes the layout of the property, off grid home, and many other features that refer to the other structures on the property.

Essentially 5,000,000 for an outdated doublewide on 5 acres with a bunch of things that were completely suited for him. An eccentric multi-multi millionaire who happened to be a mega-fan would buy this but surely nobody else would even consider such an investment. 

One (this one) wonders whether or not he was contacted by a potential buyer. Either way it was never sold.

From April 10, 1997. On U7 this morning, Elizabeth Claire Prophet...  what could have been her last interview before being diagnosed with Alzheimer's. I was rabbit holing looking for confirmation of that.

The timing couldn't have been better, just released, probably a month ago:
https://harpers.org/archive/2024/06/the-prophet-who-wasnt-after-the-apocalypse-that-failed-emily-harnett/



her 1997 Art Bell show appearance seems to be very much damage control from the Heaven's Gate mass suicide.  The fact that she is going to be making an appearance in San Diego, as a announced on the show, certainly leads me to think that.

It sounded like Art was thinking about how he was implicated in the HG self-deletion.

That's cheese, man.
Basiago.
Huh. Strangely enough, I was making fresh spaghetti and meatballs that day and there was a fresh block of actual asiago on the counter as I posted. Guess I was really looking forward to dinner.

It was gooood.
