Here are a couple of stories about Bremertonians, stories that ran in other media.

The Stranger reports that a couple calling themselves the “quantum reincarnations” from the fictional movie “The Matrix” left in Seattle’s Fisher Pavilion a device that looked odd enough to warrant inspection by a bomb squad.

“Police found a one-page manifesto attached to the apparatus; it begins: ‘Good morning, Seattle. It’s time to wake up. I watch you all every day, trying to fit with what the rest of the world wants you to be.'”

The couple, Neo and Trinity, say they represent an international revolutionary group of 1,200. Of course, they have a Web site, (Neo correctly pointed out that I got the Web site wrong, originally.) where you can read their response to The Stranger piece, the manifesto and all about the group. Personally, I’m not interested in getting involved in any group led by resurrected movie characters, unless it’s cousin Eddie from “Christmas Vacation.”

“I don’t know if I oughta go sailin’ down no hill with nothin’ between the ground and my brains but a piece of government plastic.” — Cousin Eddie

That, my friends, is wisdom.

In other news, MSNBC reports the Bremerton guy who wants to build an elevator to space has hit tough times.

“It’s been a grim week for Michael Laine, who founded the LiftPort Group four years ago in hopes of someday building a space elevator to send payloads on a vertical railroad to space. How grim is it? “It’s grim to the point that I’m over at my mom’s, scoping out the garage and trying to figure out if I can move in,” the 39-year-old entrepreneur told me today.”

He lost his Bremerton building that served as his office, but LiftPort lives, turning to balloon power.

    Alan Boyle is a pretty good source but … c’mon we’re just down the road. Pick up the phone and give us a call.

  2. Er… you screwed that up, my friend. If you’re gonna mock, you might as well get the ADDRESS right: … not “”. Jeepers.

    And there’s FAR more to that story. But Bremolos tend to just enjoy the hee-haw flash and not the substance, eh? Way to enhance that stereotype.

  3. Clean, brand-new, three-days-work website about the theory, goal, and Mission of the group… and you’ll find nothing about “resurrected movie characters” anywhere on it. It’s the truth to what I’m about, without the oft-mocked focus on where I COME from. It might be worth a look… it’s growing fast. I’d LIKE to see the movement gain some sort of notice, if only for the people who’ve written in to say it’s helped THEM.
