Nikolas 1:32
Okay, iON, you mentioned California and New York and the sea, or the water. What is that all about? Is it...

iON 1:47
It's goin' into. Goin' into the sea. See?

Nikolas 1:53
What is? The shelf? The tectonic shelf?

iON 1:57
The state of California is goin' under water. It's gonna be there, but it's gonna be under water. Gonna be very challenging -

Nikolas 2:06
Is it...

iON 2:06
- to buy flood -- stop. It's gonna be very challenging to buy flood insurance in California soon, except for that one little place where the one little woman in her neighborhood loves us; that little place up there off the Willamette Valley right in that little corner; that's gonna stay, but everything else is gone. Mark it sure[?] [Nik chuckles] 'cause she done ask, and she done worked it out, and it's done; that's written, that's done. That's not gonna be California, you're gonna call it some'um else. When they call it some'um else, it may be Bob's Town, or Bobville, or Bob -- might be Bobville. We'll rename it Bobville. [Bob chuckles] There'll be a lot of zip codes available. 90210 will be available. You can be 90210, it'd be good. It'll be available. That's a good'un, that's available. So then New York City, same way, and a good little bit of New York State. That little wrinkle right in that little hook from Manhattan in the boroughs, that's gone, and some of New York.

Nikolas 3:04
And New Jersey?

iON 3:04
Well, no, now see, "Joysey," "Joysey," it's a little different. It's so vile that it won't be swallowed by the sea. The river, from the river side up, the riverbank will be gone. But past that, it won't be that bad. It'll dry. From Camden over, everything from Camden over will be fine. But you're not -- that's not gonna be the story. Nobody's gonna fuss too much about "Joysey." The boardwalk's gonna be kinda wet.

Nikolas 3:09
So, iON...

iON 3:33
Well, you're askin' a question. Boardwalk's gonna be kinda wet, but it'll dry.

Nikolas 3:39
So, what's gonna make the sea rise?

Opening of Vogtle Units 3 & 4

Here is today’s news release (on René Dobbs' birthday, June 4, 1882):

SOUTHERN COMPANY is our company.
Bob Dobbs

… to meet the energy needs of a growing Georgia.

Thank you to all of the elected officials, business & community leaders and employees who came out this week to celebrate this new generation source, expected to operate for at least 60 – 80 years!

Taking on the New Art History Critics—Adam Lauder, Greg Betts & Adam Welch

Attention Mr. Adam Lauder:

I just ordered your OUT OF SCHOOL tome and I'll be looking for one quotation by McLuhan that nobody discusses:

Greg Betts is aware of it but he didn't apply it so he found only NOTHING:

If you don't have it, then your book (based on what Amazon says it's about) will be tossed aside.

The problem with the new batch of young "art" critics is they continue selling University courses that don't get us out of/away from celebrating the Sisyphus act of propping up Book City (the university) as it exploits art-industry history and its active denizens ("artists") on behalf of the Universities' filibuster.

What Youth?, Partial Transcript, 7 April 2020

What Youth?

Transcribed by Nan

Bob 25:37
Carolyn told me she's reading a book on the Corona virus. What is that diet, Carolyn? The Corona virus diet?

Carolyn 25:53
Carnivore diet.

Bob 25:54
Carnivore! Very close. [iON laughs] She's reading a book on the carnivore diet, the Corona virus diet.

iON 26:01
You can have meat and ice cream and wine and whiskey [Bob laughs] and anything you wanna eat. It's the best diet ever! We like it! We like it.

Bob 26:09
I haven't, I haven't seen Carolyn so shocked. Let me say this, iON. [iON laughs] I haven't seen Carolyn as shocked in years. She's reading this book that says plants are out to get you. Plants are the demons, so eat nothin' that's plant-like. And I go, they actually believe that shit? And Carolyn said that's right. Carolyn looked very despondent -- for just a few minutes. [iON laughs] Right, Carolyn? Did I get it right? Is that the basic ideology?

Carolyn 26:35
[in background] Yes.

Bob 26:35
So, I think Sue went nuts. When Sue wasn't with us for two years, she went fuckin' nuts! And she started reading these ridiculous books! So, we hope that she gets balanced.

iON 26:47
Does that mean, so does that mean you can or cannot eat the tamale out of a lobster?

Bob 26:53
[chuckles] You deal with that, Carolyn, I don't know what those words mean. It sounds funny though.

iON 26:58
It's what is in the intestinal tract of the lobster what the lobster ate, which probably isn't meat. But if you eat the lobster, can or you can or cannot eat the tamale out of a lobster? That's what they ate.

Bob 27:13
You know what he's talking about, Carolyn?

Carolyn 27:16
Yeah, it's the red waxy stuff in the lobster that I don't eat.

Bob 27:21
What about it?

iON 27:22
Yeah, that's the vegetables.

McLuhan Says Men Afraid of Lib Movement

This makes the short list for one of McLuhan's greatest probes.

In light of the changes the generations went through over the last 50 years, this statement points to the issues that have the strongest staying power:

Bob’s Private Session, 9 April 2020


Transcribed by Nan

iON 0:00
Because there's one more aspect that has to be attuned. There might be some of those jackballs, some of the old zeitgeist that Bob didn't have a chance to save, that are gonna make it, but they're not gonna be Ascended. You have a whole what we call the Walking Dead. You got the whole Yves Saint Laurent, you got all of the St. Germain. They've not had benefit of Bob and they're eternal; they're Ascended. They have never descended. They're there, but you can't say that they... The point of what we're talkin' about is you have to go through Bob. And if they don't go through Bob, now they may, but if they haven't yet, and they're already Ascended. So, there is that window. Ginney's mama is another example. She's not had the benefit of Bob, and she's eternal. No problem.

Carolyn 0:46
Well, Bob's only affected you know, at most a few hundred people. Is that the only people who are going to Ascend?

iON 0:55
No, you don't know that. You don't know that. He's got more than a couple hundred people pictures he had made on the gravestones, Carolyn. [laughs]. No, no. He's done a lot more people. You have these strange people from Algeria and bumfuck [Carolyn chuckles] "I've been listening to you for 20 years!" And you're like, "I've only been on for eleven." They're goin', "No, no, no, no, I went back to Bob Carr."

Carolyn 1:19
Okay, do not go off on a Bob rant. That's okay. I understand.

Bob 1:24
Okay, so I have a question, Carolyn.

iON 1:25
So, he has affected more people. He's just clearin' up a few things. He's just cleaning up a few things. We'll get back, Carolyn. We know what you want, Carolyn, and we're gonna give it to you. Just let him clean it up because he'll never let it go otherwise.

Bob 1:37
Why... What were we talking about, Carolyn? What's the topic?

iON 1:47
Elvis Presley. Elvis Presley.
