Guerrila travel stuff and
web journalism, and don't worry, I always put in lots of
Wrybread at Burning Man 99. Like last year, most of the pages were sent in via satellite phone live from the desert.
Baja. Read and see the "webumentary" of three
weeks travelling through Baja Mexico aboard a crazy converted
silver school bus called the
Cyberbuss with a bunch of crazy silver people. An absolutely
stellar adventure, and we sent in updates by satellite phone
from deepest Mexican desert.
98 is the Wrybread coverage of the annual gonzo holiday
rite where people don cheap santa suits and get in touch
with their inner anarchists.
at Burning Man '98. Thanks to the Cyberbuss,
I had a satellite phone at Burning Mann '98, and I sent
in this mini website from the desert. You can also hear
a few hours
of the pirate radio station I had going out there, "88.3
fm Radio Free Wrybread, functioning in conjunction with
the silver Cyberbuss".
Vehicles. One of the more popular slices of Wrybread,
this is a photo documentary of gonzo live-in vehicles and
their gonzo occupants.
Signs. Some goofy pictures I've taken of folky
signs from around the American Outback.
Shasta by Cyberbuss. A mini roadtrip to Mt. Shasta
with The Cyberbuss, this
was one of my first wordy photo narratives. Up until this
point I'd just been going with single-line cutesy captions.
WryBreadBox. A little tour of the van I lived
in for most of 1998 (with lots of single-line cutesy captions).
From the Road. A book I wrote about living with
an anarchist kitchen in the summer of 1997. You can read
the whole thing off the site, or you can buy it from the
Wrybread Catalog and read it from the
comfort of your toilet.
Mann. Sort of the sequel to Notes from the Road,
these are emails from the road. They were all written while
travelling around America, and most of them were sent in
from payphones in the most bizarre spots possible using
an accoustic coupler. This is pretty old Wrybread, summer
at the Circus. A story about seeing a stabbing
at a circus. Ancient Wrybread, written in April 1998, before
electricity had been invented.
on the Road. Agent Guano aka Gespacho of the Wrybread
Yeasty Army was on patrol in Europe and South America sending
in daily dispatches. Give him a read and drop him
Camping in VanGlorious. Some guerilla camping
in Van Glorious the WryBreadBox, this is a strangely popular
slice of Wrybread.
Wrybread Catalog. This is a few things I and
my friends have made and offer for sale. This site attempts
to be "listener supported", and I feel pretty
good about everything I sell here. On the off chance that
you're interested, you can read my philosophy about capitalism,
I tried to make it painless.
New Moonie. A photo narrative from a pre-Burning Man trip to the desert.
The Saga of Van Glorious. The mighty Van Glorious attempts to escape the dreaded Donner Triangle.
These are my CDs, and lucky you can hear them in RealAudio
and, coming soon, MP3.
Travelling Through Musical States. A CD of my various musical phases, it's sort of my greatest hits.
& Mouth. My accoustic guitar & JB's singing.
Stoneage and Gametronica. Music Gametone Mic and
I composed for the play Atomic
Stoneage, with Gametone Mic's studio surprises at the
Gametones Williamsberg Sessions. An urban gamelan
playing instruments made from urban detritus. You have to
see the instruments
to believe them.
Lines and Bad Connections. This is far and away
my most popular CD, it's telephone terrorism where I got
two phone lines, called people at random, and conferenced
them together. If you like this sort of thing, it'll make
you laugh so hard you'll be sore in the morning.
Noises. This is my collection of bizarre sounds and
music, hear them in RealAudio.
There's music I recorded at a Rainbow Gathering, there's
my ex-roomate's ex-cat having sex, there's hours of Wrybread
Radio at Burning Man 98, there's CitiZen1 and Gary Heidt
on WFMU, there's a hitchhiker freaking out in the back of
my car, there's actual calls to Apple tech support, and
lots of so on.
Line. This was an old Wrybread project where I
put stickers on New York City payphone asking people to
call a number (352-HISS) and "say something interesting".
You can hear what they said in RealAudio, but the calls
were actually pretty disappointing, I think asking people
to say something "interesting" was too challenging.
Jam. This was the first Wrybread web project.
We worked out a way of using various compression and decompression
schemes to send music back and forth through the web, and
we each added to the piece and let it grow and mutate. Think
of it as internet-age folk music.
Echo. Lieutenant Gespacho, a member of the Wrybread
Yeasty Army, directed this underground percussion piece
which was performed in an accoustically-friendly tunnel
in San Francisco. Hear it and see it.
Catalog. I sort of have to mention this one twice,
you know how it works. Our catalog has a few things I've
made and offer for sale and which you absolutely cannot
The Gametone Universe
is my sister site, written by my collaborator Gametone Mic.
It's full of photography, writing, and experimental web
art from the New York City underground, and it's the headquarters
of the percussion group The Gametones. It's constantly
updated, and absolutely amazing stuff.
Honey Pot Radio. We've been doing a weekly broadcast, every Thursday around 8pm San Francisco time until we get bored, which usually happens around 1am. There's hours and hours of archived highlights up, and some amazing pics.
The Video Booth. An installation at Webzine99 where we had people go into a video booth and act their goofiest.
The Cyberbuss Costume Ball. A half-assed site I did from the annual San Francisco gonzo bash.
These are messages people have sent to my beeper from the
site. It's a big humungous ooze of raw humanity (the messages,
not my site).
Gadgets. A bunch of how-to articles I put up for
Posting Area. No one was posting so I took most
of the links to this down, but if you want to go post something,
go ahead, and rest assured you can do so without stagefright.
Search Cam. Watch actual searches being performed
on the Magellan search engine, and see some searches that
have led people to WryBread. This is some really bizarre
Catalog. Oops, this is the third mention of the
catalog, oh well. Just remember how much you knead wrybread.
And while you're at it, why not read my rambling
