2005-12-21 08:11 pacification I don't really have anything to say. I'm just tired of seeing the word "masturbation" in big letters at the top of the page. Adaptation of a joke I remember from elementary school: Q: How do you top a war? A: Tep on the brake, tupid!

I was just wondering if you've ever heard anything from Carlos...as in the "Mexican guy who now tests negative for HIV after two years of Tibetan medicine and a little self-transformation. He's writing a book about it, I'll let you know when it comes out." Would love to read that book! 2005-12-29 20:25 ult Hmm. I haven't heard anything from him in a handful of years, though a Tibetan friend of mine worked for him at his Mexican restaurant in Dharamsala for a while. I googled a website by a Mexican guy who had recovered from AIDS using Tibetan Medicine in Dharamsala and written a book -- same guy? I can't tell for sure, but after comparing photos I think it must be. Here's a photo of him last time I saw him: http://mundane.org/gallery/v/journal/014-1801.jpg.html And here are two photos of him from his web site: http://www.geocities.com/vihlapuerta/img6.jpg http://www.geocities.com/vihlapuerta/img2.jpg The photos aren't very high quality, but the red ribbon around his neck might be the give-away. Unfortunately the website (and the free book in Word format) is in Spanish.

I don't understand how we'd have a good time hanging out if you don't drum, but I'll give it a shot. Maybe you'll learn to drum. I have a small futon that you can use as a bed. I only have one room which serves as my bedroom, living room, office, mudroom (that's like a foyer in New England), and drumming room. The hard part would be that I work out of that room four days a week, so you'd have to be very very quiet. No drumming. But you could go have a beer at Harlow's or something until I'm done with work, then you could go with me to pottery or drumming. 2006-01-25 08:36 anonymous I could learn to drum. You want me to drum, but don't want me to drum. I could have a beer as such. What do you want?
