Conspiracy! aka Mykel's Post-MRR Column Number 18

Mykel's Post MRR Column 18
by Mykel Board

It's, all models over 18 years of age. Ok, if you say so. Who am I to question it? It's not exactly questioning that I'm doing right now. It's one handed typing. It's... it's... yes! YES! Oh baby yeah!

Where's that tissue box? It's never around when you need it. Damn... good thing I'm 72 years old and have less of a mess to clean up... but fuck... the mouse is all sticky, and there are pubes caught in the keyboard.

Naked, I pad from the computer to the shower... turn on the hot water... full blast hot... then a bit of cold... adjust... get in... ahh... I don't take many showers... especially in the winter... but sometimes you just have to peel off the crust.

That feels so good... a hard hot spray... turning my skin red... like in a Japanese onsen... It hurts so good... like a finger deep in... Huh?... The water's cooling down... I've only been in five minutes and it's already getting cold... I turn down the cold water... that's better... for a couple of minutes... then it's cold again. Shit! I'm a rent-controlled tenant in prime real estate. They put a timer on my hot water. $800 a month does not buy me more than 5 minutes. It's a conspiracy!

FLASH TO an official complaint. State of Utah: (This is an edited version of the letter. The entire thing is available here.)

October 18, 1988

Dear Sir:

I am currently involved in a crisis of a bizarre nature which I'm sure will be of utmost interest, providing you can find credence in what I relate and not summarily dismiss me as being a fantasy-stricken space case.

I'm being subjected to some type of remote control electronic brain punishment, in severity nothing less than outright torture, and the technology being utilized to execute this action is not only highly specialized and sophisticated, but causes me to wonder whether knowledgeable authorities are even aware that a device of this nature exists. The credentials I can offer as to the veracity of these allegations are slim and none. I'm standing in a bad light to begin with, as a 38 year old inmate serving a 1 to 15 year sentence for 2nd degree burglary.

It is a difficult story to tell--and I swear to you that what is written on these pages is unembellished and 100% true. Eleven months ago I ran afoul of prison officials as a result of a minor altercation with other inmates. It has since been a battle of wills, and what they have done to me for my failure to kow tow to them is incomprehensible. The hostilities commenced with guards being ordered to launch an intensive campaign of harassments against me. Day after day they tampered with my food, smashing and removing items from my tray, and threatened to poison me with carcinogens and diseases. These methods were employed to provoke me into losing my temper, giving them sufficient cause to impose disciplinary measures and isolate me in the maximum security unit where I could be dealt with without witnesses. I have since discovered that these set-up tactics are standard operating procedure at this prison.

Once isolated, some extremely peculiar things began to occur. I became disoriented to the extent that my cell and surrounding area would take on a surrealistic appearance as though I were under the influence of a hallucinogenic drug, and I was plagued by severe headaches and insomnia for weeks at a time.

I began to receive, or hear, high frequency tones. Like the test pattern on a TV set. The volume or intensity of these frequencies is adjustable and some are so high and piercing that they've literally had me climbing the walls. When I complained or acted out, I was beaten and thrown into a strip cell with no clothes, mattress, toilet paper or drinking water. Nothing--and the intensity of these frequency transmissions would be crescendoed to maddening levels. This is still being done to me three shifts, 24 hours a day, and the combination of these demoralizing mental torments and sleep deprivation for weeks on end has exacted a heavy toll.

I began to write letters of complaint and question to various medical and legal associations after the first four months. I was fortunate in that the folks at the "Coalition for Prisoners' Rights Newsletter" located in Santa Fe, New Mexico, were concerned enough by to conduct a little research which resulted in their sending me reprints of three articles dealing with: Electromagnetic, and Non-Ionizing Electromagnetic Radiation, and Radio Frequency Weapons”--which were published by "U.S. News," "The Nation" and "The Atlantic" in March 1987.

These articles cover most of the mental and physical maladies I've been experiencing for the past eleven months, and I'll hopefully be able to use this information to gain further insight as to what is going on, and to alleviate the hostilities being waged against me. You cannot imagine what it has been like confined to a cell 24 hours a day for almost a year now, being brain blasted by high frequency impulses--no respite, no place to hide, and having not the slightest notion what was going on.

For the climax in this series of weird events, I began to hear voices. Voices that change pitch and timbre from being a cartoonish high and squeaky, descending through the octaves, including everything from sinister Darth Vaderish to basically normal characteristics. The reception of these voices into my inner ears is as vivid as though I were listening to a set of stereo headphones, and they are able to mix, match, and blend them in conjunction with the frequency tones creating a raucous cacophony of audio discord.

In defense of both my sanity and the veracity of my allegations, I now relate part of a conversation I had with a prison paid, but supposedly independent and neutral, paralegal adviser. He stated that he has received similar complaints from other inmates, but that nothing can be done for lack of evidence. He said that one inmate in particular has been placed on forced medication (Prolixin) because of his hearing "voices." I believe his words carried an unofficial warning for me.

Prison officials deny that they are perpetrating any such activities in response to formal inquiry but will grin and smugly indicate full awareness when no witnesses are present. "Yes, we are doing this to you, but no one will believe it, and you can do nothing to deter us." This is the attitude they project, and they are engaging in a conspiracy of inmate experimentation and exploitation that defies description. The outside authorities who even made a pretense of investigating my allegations were told I'm a habitual trouble maker with a history of psychological problems, and that effectively frustrates my attempts to have this situation looked into. Who is to dispute the word of my law-abiding and honorable keepers? How to verify and impress upon investigators the honesty of my accusations? What concrete evidence do I have?

It may very well prove impossible to bring legal action against these people for what they're doing to me, but I fully intend to continue my pursuit of the answers--and shall endeavor to expose this malignant corruption for what it is. I firmly believe the truth must eventually surface.

Any consideration you can give this matter--either assisting me with information, suggesting responsible authorities from whom I might elicit assistance, or possibly forwarding this letter to someone who could cause investigation, and perhaps act to prevent further retaliation by these people, would be ever so greatly appreciated. This letter has been written in good faith, and I sincerely hope you will treat it as such. If nothing else, I ask that you at least accord me the courtesy of acknowledging receipt.

It's a conspiracy, yeah right. Stupid paranoia, right? How could he believe that? There's no MIND CONTROL, right? It's a good thing he's in prison, right?
FLASH TO The Smithsonian Magazine November 2014 : a lab in Tonegawa Japan. Researchers put a mouse in a steel cage and shock it... presumably through electricity running through the floor. The next day they do it again. Before long, the mouse no longer wants to enter the cage. Its memory of previous shocks made it put up quite a fight before being shoved in for the next shock. Just another stupid science trick, right? Like testing to see if pornography gives men hard-ons.

BUT, that's not the end of the story. The experimenters in Tonegawa have other mice. A boy one and a girl one... locked in coital frenzy. ZAP!! Boy is dead mid-fuck. BLAM! Take his ecstatic brain cells. BLOFF! Inserted the cells (with a few technical adjustments) into the cage-terrorized brain of the shocked mouse. Voila! The shocked mouse can't wait to get back into that cage. The scientists converts his negative association to positive sexual ones. He gets a mouse hard-on just thinking about the shock in store for him. Mind control, CAN really happen. And not just to mice. Maybe the US government is doing this to its own citizens?

FLASH TO Tuskegee Alabama. It's 1930 and the U.S. government has recruited about 600 Negro men and their families. Free healthcare! Regular examinations. We'll take care of you.

Half these men have syphilis... No one tells 'em. It's an experiment, you see. To see how colored people spread VD, who among the Negroes gets it, and why. It's for science, don't you know? After colored people die, colored children are born with congenital syphilis, and more, a whistleblower finally spills the beans... in the 1970s! After 40 years, and deaths and birth defects later, the program stops... or so they say.

FLASH TO Vanderbilt University in Nashville. A line of pregnant women waits at a free clinic.

Pregnancy leads to iron depletion,” says the doctor. “You need to keep up your iron levels. We'll give you the iron you need... just take one of these pills every day. They're free.”

What the doctor DOESN'T say is that the pills are radioactive... and the women are being used in a test of radiation on fetuses.

FLASH TO MASSACHUSETTS: The US government gives a dozen retarded boys nutritional supplements highly dosed with radiation...

Whoa! Stop right now. You don't really believe that stuff, do you Mykel? It's just conspiracy shit. Paranoia.

Errr... not. The US government admitted it all during the Clinton years.

There's more... a history of it, from LSD testing on US troops to torture in Guantanamo. These conspiracies HAPPENED. They're not made up. They're not the products of a paranoid minds. (That is, the IDEA of conspiracy is not the product of a paranoid mind. The conspiracies themselves may indeed come from such minds.)

FLASH TO FACEBOOK: “Where'd you get that statistic...” I post in answer to someone claiming the American healthcare system saves more lives than the European, “Fox News?”

Just because it's on Fox News,” comes the reply, “doesn't mean it's not true.”

Shit, she's right.

It's easy to dismiss something as being FROM FOX NEWS or POLITICALLY CORRECT or CONSPIRACY THEORY, without ever considering IS IT TRUE?

Get it? Sometimes conspiracies are REAL. Sometimes not. Sometimes we'll never know, or at least we don't know now. That's the lesson... learning to say I DON'T KNOW.

Were the ovens in Auschwitz used to bake bread? Did the Israelis plan the World Trade Center attack? Was Kennedy killed by the CIA? Did George W Bush work with the Saudis to save the bin Laden family? Is global climate change the result of US government experiments in weather control?

The answer is easy: I DON'T KNOW!

I do know that just a conspiracy theory is not enough of an answer. It's not an answer at all. Once we realize that some conspiracies are REAL... just like some Fox News is real (sports scores?) or some politically correct ideas are good ideas (multi-cultural education?)... some conspiracies are also real. The questions they raise deserve to be answered. Dismissing them without those answers is intellectually dishonest... and as we saw in Tuskegee, in Nashville, and in Tonegawa... it may be dangerous to your health.

-->Favorite rabbi quote dept: Rabbi Michael Lerner wrote in Tikkun Magazine, "If Jews today go into any synagogue in the U.S. or around the world and say, 'I don't believe in God or Torah and I don't follow the commandments,' most will still welcome them in and urge them to become involved. But say, 'I don't support the State of Israel,' and you are likely to be labeled a self-hating Jew or anti-Semite, scorned and dismissed.
You can read a whole article here.

-->Blaming the (dead) victims dept: Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu told CNN that "Hamas wants to "pile up as many civilian dead as they can. They use telegenically dead Palestinians for their cause. The more dead, the better."
Telegenically dead? You mean like in Aushwitz? Some folks sure got a lot of mileage out of THOSE pics.

-->Twat for an eye dept: Further on the Mid-East front, Israeli professor Mordechia Kedar of Bar-Ilan University said "Terrorists like those who kidnapped the children and killed them-- the only thing that deters them is if they know that their sister or their mother will be raped in the event that they are caught."
Nothing like a man who believes in equality, I say.

-->Like Gaza dept: The owner of a shooting range in Hot Springs, Arkansas says her facility is a “Muslim-free” zone. She explains that she's allowed to do this despite federal laws prohibiting religious discrimination, because “Islam is a theocracy, not a religion”

-->Jeezus fuckin' Christ, it's about time dept: The government of Ireland is considering removing a 1937 law against blasphemy. Right now, violations of the law can be punished with a fine of more than $30,000.
I say, sucking Jesus' cock is just not worth it... at least in Ireland.

-->What a surprise dept: The British charity Oxfam reports that as of 2016, “more than half the world's wealth will be owned by 1% of the population. Right now, the richest 80 people in the word have the same wealth as the poorest 3.5 billion. How much does a machine gun cost?

-->Sometimes, I forget dept: Sometimes, I find it hard to follow my own advice. Though I no longer dismiss something just because it's Conspiracy, Politically Correct, or Fox News... I do tend to dismiss something if it falls under the umbrella of FEMINISM. It's so hard to take them seriously. Take the call to make rape cases the exception to innocent until proven guilty... please!

-->A la carte service dept: A local municipality has charged an out-of-town motorist $584.87 for calling the police. After she rear-ended another car, she called the cops, trying to do the right thing. The local municipality, Lyndhurst OH, sent her a bill. The details: $308 for the two responding police vehicles, $196.87 for police administrative overhead and $80 to pay the two responding officers.

-->Keeping the Pressure on Dept: I want to thank reader George Metesky for suggesting a continuing Bring Back Mykel effort directed at Maximum Rock'n'Roll for their (firing me as a) contribution to the world of censorship. Send your comments-- to with the subject line: BRING BACK MYKEL! Let me know how they answer.

-->And: I'm on a massive clean-up/divest kick. I'm giving away DVDs, cassettes, VHS videos, CDs posters, and a few 7-inch singles. Just pay separate shipping and handling. Details at: MykelsGiveaway

Here's another one I found in an old zine. I know this one... and it's one of my favorites... It was written in the midst of the AIDS crisis. (Click on the pages for a full view.)


My Life As A Girl (an old one!)

While on a cleaning spree, I found this old UK zine with a cool cover. (Reminds me of TRUST).

Opening it, I find something by ME!


I don't remember writing it at all. But here it is between columns. (Click on the image to see the full large version):
