Flashback: Guide to Para Texas

In late 2001, in the wake of September 11th, a new publication was born out of fear for our Republic and a need to communicate the weirdness of post-911 life to our Central Texas friends, family and neighbors.Austin Para Times issue 3 cover

From early 2002 to mid 2003 I was editor of the Austin Para Times news-zine. We covered a variety of paranormal and parapolitical issues and topics.

I left the magazine to finally start my non-profit community lending library, the Anomaly Archives.

In issue #3, I wrote an article as my alter-ego Jackson Valient (with co-writer Yogina Bare … another pseudononymous author and fellow fringe explorer) that serves as an introduction to all things anomalous here in Central Texas.

I offer it here for archival purposes and as part of my personal introduction to our new audience within the LOWFI network.

Ed Hall

 

I actually shot some of the footage for this video. Over the years several close friends of mine repeatedly shot film and video footage of ED HALL – one of my all time favorite bands. They produced several albums (below) but disbanded, reforming later in a completely new guise as PONG. See links below to past Ed Hall Reunion shows and more!

38th annual National UFO Conference – 30 second TV spot

This 30 second TV spot for the ill-fated 38th National UFO Conference aired a few times on Time Warner cable before being pulled due to the cancellation of the conference because of the events of September 11th, 2001. 

This 30 second TV spot for the ill-fated 38th National UFO Conference aired a few times on Time Warner cable before being pulled due to the cancellation of the conference because of the events of September 11th, 2001.

The 30 second TV spot featured an animated version of the official poster (left) by Mack White. This rare television spot featured one of the first big hits by local Austin band PONG (formerly the infamous Ed Hall), Blues Underground – a song that had lyrics such as, “The Knights of Templar, They Run The Game, They’ve Got The Money, And All The Fame, Long Ago Across The Sea, The Invented Monopoly!”

Greg Boone tipped us off that Vallee is on Coast To Coast tonight.

Interesting that a man supposedly long out of the field is still being discussed and doing radio…

Second NUFOC Trailer

Link to Video

This promo for the 38th annual National UFO Conference was to be shown to audience members at the original Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in downtown Austin, Texas in the final days leading up to the ill-fated 38th NUFOC scheduled for the weekend of September 14th through 16th, 2001. In fact, it was probably hand delivered to Drafthouse owner Tim on Monday night, September 10th, 2001. I don’t know if it was ever actually shown.

NUFOC’d Again

National UFO Conference 

 Special Guest Robert Anton Wilson

Back in the year 2000 I accepted responsibility for the organizing and hosting of the 38th annual National UFO Conference – NUFOC for short. Little did I realize that I was about to be “NUFOC’d!” This conference was going to be a truly anomalous event featuring 3 days and 3 nights of lectures, movies and music at the (now famous and soon to be relocated) original downtown Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.

This was not going to be your ordinary New Age / ETH promoting UFO conference. It was going to feature many alternative theories and approaches to the study of UFOs and related phenomena. We were also going to honor the legendary self-proclaimed leader of the Illuminati himself, Robert Anton Wilson. I was flying-in over 23 speakers from across the country and even some from overseas – however, the whole event had to be canceled due to the tragic events of September 11th.

Well, I finally managed to begin uploading the various promo videos to Google Video (and perhaps YouTube shortly). The first one can be seen below with a little more commentary at the following link:
