Brian | 16 comments I do in fact remember! Though not the details, of course, I was asleep. But a reunion does sound in order. What happened to Peter? I remember Laura, do you know what she's doing?

No-one, including myself, has ever listened to any of the tapes awake - unless, of course, they cheated - in wch case their graduation wd be irrevocably revoked if I were to learn of it.

Peter died last yr in England when he hit his head while skateboarding. Laura moved away from Baltimore to Maine for a few yrs to recuperate from what one might call "the hazards of being human in Harm City". Then she moved to San Francisco where she & Alfred Merchlinsky got married. They just recently moved back to Baltimore again. We're still in touch.

As for a Nuclear Brain Physics Surgery's cool reunion? I'm seriously considering trying to organize it. The graduates who're amongst my GoodReads friends are:

Sumu Pretzler (Doug Retzler) (Baltimore)
Laura Adele Trussell (Baltimore)
Brian Gentry (North Carolina/Baltimore)
Reinhardt U. Sevol (Paris)
Brainpang (Peter Warner) (NYC/Pittsburgh)
Warren Burt (Melbourne/Pittsburgh)
Maya Espy (Michelle Dunn) (Baltimore/Pittsburgh)

That's only about 15% of the total graduates. I'm not in touch w/ the majority of them anymore. Still, I'm very, very curious about what's on the tapes & will only listen to them under the cirscumstances that they were intended to be listened to - ie: at the reunion. Maybe this, yr, maybe next. The graduates are scattered all over the world & getting them all in one place will be very difficult & expensive.

Yeah, just think of Nuclear brain Physics Surgery's cool as being like Black Mountain College - an honor to've been a part of.. but don't expect much alumni support.

Damn! That's a slow reply! Even for the La Brea Tar Pit that's the Cognitive Dissidents group! The reunion is so slow in coming that I expect us all to be dead by the time it happens..
