Cosmic Ray Suit modeled by a dummy

Like everything else connected with the Cosmic Ray Deflection Society, this page's title has several meanings...It's about Artcars and has an artcar makeover contest for the graphically minded... And it's about getting yourself into a cosmic ray suit...Have fun while saving yourself and your loved ones from the coming onslaught of deadly cosmic rays...You'll also find a bunch of pics of cosmic ray members, doing cosmic ray stuff...

Recipes from our covered dish meetings...

When a local chapter of The Cosmic Ray Deflection Society of North America, Inc. get's established the very first activity it should undertake is the covered dish meeting... Everyone should bring their cosmic ray hats, some spray paint and something good to eat...A co-ordinator helps assure you don't have 6 kinds of pasta salad...Get a loose leaf notebook and start a cookbook...

Other Cosmic Ray Activities

  • Cosmic Ray Science Fair

    Cosmic ray detectors, ozone generators and other wacky science things...
    JACOB'S LADDER by Bill Beaty Create ozone...
    Supersaturated Environments
    THE SCIENCE CLUB

  • Quasi/Research into Pseudo-Science

    While The Tacky-On Priestess isn't a Cosmic Ray Deflection Society member, she's certainly doing research into pseudo-science...She says, Dr. Zeroid, an interdimensional space-time traveler channeled through me the secrets of Tacky-On particles! Here is a page from the Tacky-On manifesto I channeled from Dr. Zeroid - she even told me what the particles look like and how to build Tacky-On transmitters as fashionable wearable art in their image so that everyone could generate Tacky-On energy!!!

  • Building Cosmic Ray Deflectors...Hands on research

    The Hat Comes First... gives you all the information you need to get started building your cosmic ray deflection headpiece... When the ozone layer goes down, you can put your hat on and have time to build a suit to protect the rest of your body...

    Also in progress is a new set of cosmic ray body shields in all shapes and sizes...The Cosmic Ray Wall and Patio is in the final stage of the painting process... We've been adding spray paint with stencils for almost five years now, using the wall to paint our robes, pants, vests and shields...Bindlestiff Circus and Gump and the bugvan painted all day in early May, so the project is moving along nicely... When we finish going around all the stenciled images with acrylics using small brushes, we'll be ready to attach stuff!!!
    June 2nd is the projected day to start adding stuff!!!

  • Cosmic Ray Drum & Trumpet Corps

    Well, we have a drum anyway...and another one in the works...

  • Cosmic Ray Calendar Project

    Upcoming holidays include Independence Day on December 25th and cosmic ray new year which occurs on the full moon closest to the winter solstice occuring this year on December 24th...

    The 12th Annual Newspaper Costume Ball and Extravaganza is also coming up pretty soon...

    Potlach Day is on the fourth Wednesday of November...Give everything you own away on this day... The Northwest Indians did this every year or so until the practice was outlawed by the Feds about 100 years ago...

Deadly Cosmic Rays And the Ozone Hole

A real science exploration of the hole in the ozone and the deadly cosmic rays that are getting in through it...

Cosmic Ray Deflecting?

Knowing, that in some future time, when the ozone layer has been further destroyed by man-made chemicals such as flourocarbons and exhaust fumes, the earth and it's inhabitants will be mercilessly bombarded by deadly cosmic rays, the Cosmic Ray Deflection Society of North America, Inc. has been organized to discover ways of surviving the coming onslaught...Krudzna Ink is a loosely knit organization of crazed, forward thinking environmentalists dedicated to the survival of the human race in general, and life on the planet in particular...

While the society itself was formally organized in May of 1984, cosmic ray deflecting as a mental attitude was first realized in the fall of 1973 when reports first came out on the impending destruction of the ozone layer...Ozone, O3, the thin layer of our planet's atmosphere found 20 miles up, protects us from dreaded cosmic rays. Something had to be done!!! An Anti-Cosmic Ray Suit (ACRaS) would be constructed! Man-made items that are really unnecessary and have no real value for our lives were attached to a hat and a shirt... By believing the collection of trinkets, tickets, plastics, toys, auto parts, jewelries, beads, buttons, and other trivial items would repel the cosmic rays, the CRs were actually repelled!!!

We call the point at which the cosmic rays actually start being repelled CRITICAL MASS...As you attach each piece to your cosmic ray deflection item be it hat, shirt, car, house, shield or footgear, you think that this will be the item that gives you critical mass...At some point it actually starts happening!!! We hope...

Since those early days of CR Deflection, several cars, or Cosmic Ray Deflection Motor Vehicles, have joined the growing collection of CR items. We are now working on a Cosmic Ray House & Garden with patio in New Orleans as well as shields for urbanwear...

Dysonberg Confusion Principle

The first principle of CR Deflection has been joined by a second, more controversial theory... We now also believe that cosmic rays have a low level of intelligence which allows them to be easily confused by actions contrary to what is considered normal. Once confused, CRs tend to retreat on their own to whence they came. This Dysonberg Confusion Principle, or DCP, blends well with the society's life-style while wearing our ACRaS and riding in the CRDMV...To put the DCP in other terms, we believe that cosmic rays are semi-intelligent and therefore easily confused...That's why we wear foster grants, even though we are not movie stars...That's why we shoot off fireworks on December 25 and exchange presents on July 4th...That's why we celebrate Valloween, the only holiday celebrated twice a year on Feb 14 & Oct 31...All these activities as well as wearing our cosmic ray suits confuses the cosmic rays, which slows them down...Then you just step aside and they go past you...

Members Mugs

Here you can find pictures of cosmic ray activities and photos of members in their cosmic ray deflection suits and hats...Send your picture in and we will put it up in our gallery of members' mugs...

The Cosmic Ray Letters

  • Samual Delaney's book Dahlgren and Tom Wolfe's Electric Koolaid Acid Test are the chief books of cosmic ray deflecting...Hammer tossing, test rapping , Neal Cassady's item and button covered jeans jacket (Does anybody know where to get a picture of this treasure?) and the chains worn by the scorpions in Delany's Dahlgren are the original inspirations for the cosmic ray deflector's design...If you are seriously intrested in becoming a member of the Cosmic Ray Deflection Society of North America, Inc. please read these books...
  • We found a moo for Dahlgren
  • Like the beats? Try The Village Voice. Here are all the beat types in the Cosmic Baseball League - Dharma Beats...
  • Literary Kicks has the most beat on the web...
  • Try the The William S. Burroughs Files... Serious typos here from a professional educator, but maybe he typed it all at once in the Jack Kerouac style...
  • Beat Writers
  • Listen to Readings By Jack Kerouac On the Beat Generation at Kerouac Speaks

  • The Digger Archives Create The Condition You Describe - The San Francisco Diggers became one of the legendary groups in the Haight-Ashbury during the years 1966 to 1968. Shrouded in a mystique of anonymity, they took their name from the original English Diggers of the 1640s. The San Francisco Diggers combined street theater, anarcho direct action, and art happenings in their social agenda. Their most famous activities revolved around Free Food and the Free Store, where everything was free for the taking.
