The Rafan Electronic Bible 1
|CHAPTER 8 yeah|
And so didst Barney Christ come from where he was (hes a little secretive) and spake in a loud booming voice, "Rafans, your web site is truly neat. I wish that you would have more drawings of other characters than just the Snooze and Coctyle. Where is my picture? What about your protector, Agent Jay? I want more pictures!"
Then a lightning bolt came from the sky and crackled niftily.
Oh Rafans who read this page, make your drawings and mail them to the Keeper of Mirth.
Chapter TEN The TOT doeht approve highly of the new E-bible. How about we celebrate this new era of didgital rafanism with a real live FEAST!!!!!!!!? We just need to pick a city to have it in.
KTKOF had an exam today that went pretty well. Not perfect, mind you, but pretty well. He also had a good night's fun with Mirth, who could temporarily be called "Mirth the story-teller," but that's another subject.
And glory went up to haven and bounced back to earth in celebration of the Tot's first glorious chapter in the "E-bible 1."Rafanism is truly at a "high" point. (IYKWIM, "high," you know, like "getting high.") But I digress.
Anyway, may Barney Christ be with you, and may your whatevers be lined with etc.... or something.
And so it was that the Keeper of Friendship's chapter do strange things to the Bible. It did perplex the Keeper of Mirth much. Does anyone else see things in a script font after chapter 11? Mighty strange.
a SECRET MESSAGE:
Three points to the Rafan triangle:
And so dids't the Keeper of Friendship's previous chapter wreak havok across the land, for if any one person who posts a chapter in a font that the reader does not have on their computer, weird characters shall appear instead of text. It's a good thing the the Keeper of Mirth can view the text without needing the font... He's the "keeper" of this web site! ;-P
I recommend that we either have a list of certain "friendly" fonts to use, or have a separate page where anyone can download special fonts that we have/will use. Wot say ye, Rafans?
And so it was that the Keeper of Mirth's forced vacation dids't come to an end, with the call from his employer telling him that he should come back. This poses a new problem.... the Keeper of Mirth may not be able to go on tour this summer now.....
The TOT doeth remind the Keeper of mirth that goin on the Phish tour will be a religous experience and that he must do whatever it takes to get there especially since he already ordered tickets. gosh darnit
The Keeper of Mirth dids't realise the religious experience that he coulds't be missing out on. However, he will not be able to use any vacation time until August. However, Mirth's wife has already stated that she believes he will take the new Rafan Party Machine with him on tour...
How can I belong if I am short?
Anyway, with Mirth in mind, I propose a Rafan prayer/ poemem::::::::
Work, work, work, work
Work, work, work, work
Work, work, work
Play Play Play
So ends chapter 19
Chapter 20 The TOT sits with mixed emotions. I'm sad because my good friend The Spirit won't be returning to the birthplace of rafanism as origionally hoped. But I amd happy that he wont be coming back because he got a REAL PAYING ACTING JOB!!!!! A-Fillee-Hee-Cat!! to The Spirit from The TOT on your new gig.
The Keeper of Mirth dids't give many congratulations to the Spirit. Huzzah! Now of I only could have gone down to Chicago..... The Keeper of Mirth also would'st also like to welcome the newest Rafan into our midst - Jo Jo the Wonder Somethingorother!
So Ends 21
Friends, rafans, honeymelons..lend me your ears, for this weekend I was truely one of the blessed. I was once down and out in the birth place of Rafanism. But now I have been healed by the holy hands of Barney Christ. By his guidance, I was visited by not one but two of my fellow Rafans, from which I had not heard a whole hell of a lot. The ToT and The Keeper of Mirth did enter my field once more to bring me the joy and meaning of what it is to be a Rafan, as well as re-induct an old member, now known as Jo Jo the Wonder Somethingorother. We laughed, adventured, and saw the most Jerry Springer like fight. Ahhh, it was good to be back. Buttercup HOO HA!!!! Chapter 22 Chapter 23
The TOT doe'th anxiously await the arrival of his and The Keeper of Friendship's PHISH tickets. Are other Rafans going? We would like to get a heap of our brethern together for a massive feaste at the Alpine Valley show in late July. Let me or either of the Keepers know if you want to go so we can make plans.
And so the most holy of all holidays dids't come. The Keeper of Mirth dids't enjoy the significance of this day much greatly on his way in to work this morning. Also this morning was the last time the Keeper of Mirth would see his car. Ah, the good old Reliant, I will never have to wonder what that sound is and where it is coming from again! Much time was spent removing personal items from the vehicle, including stereo equipment. In the end, it will be all good, since the Keeper of Mirth woulds't be bringing home a new Rafan Party Machine!!!
Who is this guy in my car???
Hoo HA!!! Rafans, Hoo Ha!
The Keeper of Mirth dids't wish every Rafan a very happy 420! Get stoned off your gourd!
And the Keeper of Mirth dids't note that on this day, 4/20/99 the Banner ad for the Rafan Homepage was't displayed for the 420th. time on someone else's website! Yay!!!!!
RAFANS I'm so proud of you all. You have mastered the tools of your age and used them to bring my words to the masses. Keep up the good work and remember --Don't have sex with your roommates, it will only lead to trouble for everyone---
BARNEY IS CHRIST!
The TOT doe'th wish all ye Rafans a very merry 420!
The music store magically finished repairing my bass today! I'ts a week early, and cost half what I expected!!!!!!!
I actually had a dream about packing a bowl last night. I had this huge bud, I't was dark green with a bright orange center and it was so sticky and resious that the whole dream was of me trying to manipulate it into the bowl, the entire time I was scraping amber colored hash off of my hands and arms. -mmmmm sticky kind bud, I think I'm going to go back to sleep now.
A day not yet known to will hold another mind expanding journey.
Old and new concepts will meld and terms will be explained. The negative connotations of a sacred holiday will cease to be a justification of chaos and all the brothers and sisters worldwide will scatter the beans gathered with care throughout the year.
Our host for the annual spring gathering awaited our arrival. The Keeper of Mirth announced his arrival at my gates using his tele-communicator.
"Come forth and ride to the festivities in yonder dark chariot, Infinitely fine in all its accessories and splendor."
With a greeting to my fellow guardians of higher sensibilities and a high five for the slammin ride, we were off to pass the night away in glee and easy vibrations.
The elder spoke of many new and awe inspiring events of that day. We attempted to mentally prepare ourselves to the herbal ital being passed about.
We were not prepared.
For the first time the Keeper of Friendship could make a bible entry from work. Work computers have internet explorer, but some kind of daft version that refused to read the page. BUT, the new Netscape version works fine with work computers' Netscape. Hurrah for technology. The nice thing about writing in the bible at work is not have to worry about my roommates picking up the phone and killing my connection. It's also more like the old days of Rafanism when we wrote in the Bible primarily to kill time while bored in class. You see, I'm bored now, so I'm rambling incoherently to kill tyime. I believe that killing time inspires the greatest art and technology of human society.
The Keeper of Mirth dids't agree that the Bible was a great source of entertainment whils't one was bored. It still is. However, it's gotten better because now we don't have to fight about who has the bible and who's getting it next. We can all have it at the same time!
The TOT dids't audition for a band yesterday, it went pretty well and although I'm not "in" they did ask me to come back and jam some more next week. Their called strawberry square and you can check them out at http://www.sberrysquare.com. Also, While hanging out at The Chameleon's apartment today I discovered that Buddy Miles is not only playing in K-town, he's sleeping at Mamma and Pappa Rafans house this week. Hoo-Ha, I hope I get to jam with him.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIRTH. HAPPY HOLY RAFAN DAY, RAFANS!!! HOO-HA
And Lo, while sifting through the grains of that great eternal beach that is the Internet, the Spoongirl came upon an autopsy of Jerry Garcia. And it was gross. But strangely transfixing. Here
Just wanted to tell you Rafans about the COCAINE... Oh, sorry, I ment the VALIUM
Greetings, Rafans. Here is a birthday poemem (yes, a real poemem) from the Keeper of Mirth:
Feeling the engine
Through the eager gearshift
I find myself flying
Rain dries up
Until all is warm with the
Soft touch of the light.
Now, I'm going to go and get coctyle!
