A New Beginning: memestream Has Moved!

memestream url

With my blog under attack from robotic comment spammers (video poker, viagra, etc.), and my email account all but crippled as a result, I have moved my blog from bethechange.org, where it has been hosted for the past two years.

Or I should say: my brother in service, Nipun, has moved it. He took the blue pill and fearlessly waded into the land of code — a place technotards like me dare not tread — and rescued the 175 postings I have made since this narcissistic exercise began. WordPress and I did the easy stuff.

Matrix Hack

The URL will continue to be www.memestream.org. For those of you accessing this blog through mark.bethechange.org, please be sure to reset your bookmarks and RSS aggregators to www.memestream.org.

Over the next several weeks, I will be re-uploading many of the past entries from the memestream archive, and adding new posts as well. Happily, the spam comments will be a thing of the past. If the Dalai Lama can bear the Chinese no malice, then who am I to stay pissed-off at the robo-spammers? Still, I say: “Good riddance!”

Sadly, I will not be able to transfer the wonderful commentary — usually more insightful than the original postings themselves — that so many of you have contributed over the years, with respect to the old entries. I am hopeful that, starting today, you will re-establish the pattern of lively debate and provocative give-and-take which we have seen on this blog over the past two years. Let the comments fly!

Blasts from the Past

Man Up!
Man up you pussy!

... because the idiocy of manliness is an evergreen topic.


Talking Turkey
how to cook a perfect turkey in half the time

... because Canada and the US will celebrate their Thanksgiving holidays and, regrettably and preventably, not 1-cook-in-10 will serve a decent turkey.


Filial Piety Awareness Day
Kaki Tusler, Mother's Day Celebrant

... because everyday is Mother's Day.


America Dreaming Small
American Dream

... because the American Dream seems but a distant memory, given the country's dominant ethos of small-mindedness.


Serenity and Gratitude to Bring in the New Year
New Year's Eve at Tibetan Pavillion

... to remind us that not every mix of Tibetans and Western spiritual seekers has to be nauseating.


Incredible Vision
Infinite Vision

... to celebrate the new edition of Infinite Vision published in India.


Expelliarmus! Harry Potter and the Path to Gandhian Nonviolence
Expelliarmus, Potter, Gandhi, Nonviolence

... reprised because military strategy seems more cruel and less effective than ever -- and certainly there is a better way.


India Going Nowhere Fast
Nano in Flames

... because cars are ruining Pondicherry, where I live. How badly are they fucking up your Indian town?


Understanding the Gift Economy
Gift Economy Explained

... reprinted because more-and-more people seem want to understand the gift economy. (Yeah!)

It will be no surprise to anyone who follows this blog that "all the best stuff" resides in the readers' comments. So don't stop reading when you hit the end of the essays. And add your voice to the discussion!
