War of the Worlds



EUGENE, Ore. – Beginning Monday, several Eugene Police officers will be assigned to patrolling the downtown Park Blocks and the surrounding area.

Because I, Jonny Sky Pilot, made the Gamalen connection between Catherine and Artaud, in the City of Eugene there exist an eternal state of Shakespeare Theater and Festival. The improvisation is without end. Everything that goes on in a Shakespeare play, takes place in the streets of Eugene where I spotted my Juliet. Too bad I did so as an Old Man. Here is the Great Divide that kept us apart.  I am much more than a Montague. I am however, a man, who found his muse.

As to where our children get all this drama? Is it from their parents, or, playwrites and movie makers?

“The Montague boys meet their friend, Mercutio, who has tickets to the Capulet party. Romeo takes the ecstasy Mercutio gave him and they proceed to the Capulet mansion. The effects of the drug and the party overwhelm Romeo, who goes to the restroom. While admiring an aquarium, he and Juliet see each other and fall instantly in love. Tybalt spots Romeo and vows to kill him for invading his family’s home, but Fulgencio stops him.”


The Story Behind the Play The inspiration for these pieces came from working with the actors and director of Eugene Chamber Theater. They improvised the story of the Descent of Inanna, and then provided encouragement, insight, and feedback for the words that I wrote after being inspired by their work. I owe an immense debt to Catherine Vandertuin, Eugene Chamber Theater’s late producer and director.

Above we see The Children at play in downtown Eugene. Ambrose Holthem-Keathley has grabbed some boosom, and Alley Valkyrie is being fondled by the police. That’s Alley reading her essay on Human Feces to the Mayor. They had a ball. They invited Belle to come play with them. She ran smack dab into the Wizard of Oz. How many tens of thousands of dollars will the tax payer fork over to keep the Cops after The Bad Children? This money could go to house and feed the homeless.

Here is ‘Downtown’ Alley telling me Downtown is off limits to me – just me! Will Belle be there, to beat me up – too? The Memoirs groups, and Marilyn Reed, identified me as THE PROBLEM, the source of bad civic magic. These are now famous words.

Alley Valkyrie; ” I will also say that going downtown would be a mistake, as EPD is quite aware of who and what you are, and they have nine uniformed officers downtown. But then again, you said you were going to City Council and you didn’t have the balls to do that, and…See More

Alley Valkyrie: And if you do go downtown, you will have to deal with me personally, by the way.”

On almost any given day it is Halloweed for the Activists and Anarchists in the City Parks. Here is fellow reporter being attacked by one of Downtown Alley’s Ball Busten Psycho-Babel Babes from Hell. We have seen her go topless, and come at the police in another video. ‘Don’t touch MEEE – bitch!’ has got to be a song someday, now that our politics is overflowing with pussy-grabbing, weenie-showing, politicians.

Here I am daring to go downtown.




There is a West Side Story here, now that the cops are here to stay.


Sol Yurick passed away. I and my ex-wife, along with my step-daughter, stayed at Sol’s house when we went back east to pick up the Thunderbird. We talked for hours about his books, and, the real Cultural Warfare that was going down. I really liked this man.

Here are some wonderful images of Eugenites celebrating Halloween. Mothers with children have taken back the downtown from the Acid Heads who are there every day. Remember it was a LSD sale that caused the alleged Riot that have put a half-dozen police in the Park Block – for as long it takes!


I asked Belle Burch if she took hallucinogenics, and she said she had. Antonin Artaud came to the Southwest, took peyote, and witnessed a ritual peyote dance. We are on the verge of having a new Ghost Dance. I have elevated Belle and her mother, Catherine Vaderturin, who is now in the company of Artaud, Beckett, and James Joyce. How about Victor Hugo?

We should have had a Labyrinth Walk. There should have been a reading of War of the Worlds. We need  new Eugene parade and celebration. This is a real NEED! Mothers raise their children to be Little Dramatists. Belle was raised to be this. She fulfilled her mission in life. She is Alice in Wonderland chasing the White Rabbit, and his companion ‘Shitty Brown Dog’.

Yesterday, I heard the police say they are going to make the downtown safe “for everyone”. I consider this a personal Halloween message.

The War of the Worlds” is an episode of the American radio drama anthology series The Mercury Theatre on the Air. It was performed as a Halloween episode of the series on Sunday, October 30, 1938, and aired over the Columbia Broadcasting System radio network. Directed and narrated by actor and future filmmaker Orson Welles, the episode was an adaptation of H. G. Wells‘ novel The War of the Worlds (1898). It became famous for allegedly causing mass panic, although the reality of the panic is disputed as the program had relatively few listeners.[3]



For instance, although the Tarahumara’s rituals were highly Christianized and, indeed, Artaud’s language mirrors this throughout, the use of Peyote becomes an access to the reality of its mysteries; the experience itself of the ‘Word of God’ rather than a simple textual doctrine:

Now if the Priests of the Sun behave like manifestations of the Word of God, or of his Logos, that is, Jesus Christ, the Priests of Peyote allowed me to experience the actual Myth of Mystery, to become immersed in the original mythic arcana, to enter through them into the Mystery of Mysteries, to look upon the face of those extreme operations by which THE FATHER MAN, NEITHER MAN NOR WOMAN, created all things (Artaud 20).


In 26 years as the owner of Full City Coffee Roasters on Pearl Street, Michael Phinney is familiar with the Park Blocks.

“It used to be that most of the people on a summer day in the park blocks would be people from the city or county or all of these offices down here having lunch and enjoying the outdoors,” Phinney said.

But said it’s not like that anymore.

“Because they were either intimidated or harassed by some of the people who are down here,” he said.

So, Eugene decided to make a change in an effort to bring peace in the community.

“We’re putting officers in the park, enough so that it can be safe for our officers and so that it can be made to feel safe for anyone who wants to visit the park,” said Chief Pete Kerns from the Eugene Police Department.

Kerns said there will be a handful of officers at a time in the area, in addition to the regular downtown patrols, for as long as necessary.

Phinney said it will make a difference for a few days, but not in the long run.

Other Eugene residents say there are already police officers in the area and their presence isn’t effective.

However, Kerns said this is part of a long-term plan to change the attitude downtown.

“If we can replace what we’ve seen with something that’s positive and appealing then we’ll do what we can to make that happen,” Kerns said.

All in all, Phinney said it’s a tough issue that affects his business

and the community.

“What I hope for is just civility on everybody’s part,” he said.

Perhaps as many as a million radio listeners believed that a real Martian invasion was underway. Panic broke out across the country. In New Jersey, terrified civilians jammed highways seeking to escape the alien marauders. People begged police for gas masks to save them from the toxic gas and asked electric companies to turn off the power so that the Martians wouldn’t see their lights. One woman ran into an Indianapolis church where evening services were being held and yelled, “New York has been destroyed! It’s the end of the world! Go home and prepare to die!”
