Subject: Official Nobody for President Songs

There have only been three Birthday Party Nobody for President songs.

The first was called "Nobody for President" and done by David Peel, Steve Weber and The Holy Modal Rounders.

The second was called "Nobody for President" and released on 45 RPM by Jim Maxwell & The Sundown Band (Roy Marden, Jerry Shebeski, Joe Jedrlinic, Craig Grant, David Peel, Joanna D'ascoli, and Sherwin Winnick).

The third was called "Nobody for President" and done by Country Joe McDonald.

Since then, there have been no "OFFICIAL" songs, except for those in the mind.

Subject: Nobody Remembers You and Thinks of You Often.

Yeah, it has been a long time since anything was written here, but with good reason.

First, Nobody would like to apologize to those who have written and not received a reply. There was a time when Nobody responded to Everybody.

Nobody also wrote to those who offered their support, links, help at rally's, etc. and thanked them... because Nobody cares they care.

Things don't change, but people and 'the times' do and during the 2000 election 'things' got a little rough, because Nobody started getting email death threats, an overabundance of SPAM, and countless attacks.

On top of this, Somebody seeking self promotion created a small mess and dumped it on Nobody's lap.

The funny thing was, Everybody else easily understood why NOBODY is in charge.

Because of this, and masked email, the responses ended; however, Nobody reads everything and sometimes gets me to respond.

Now here are a few things I want to bring up... because they have been brought to my attention.

BLOGS - Wonderful! I love them. Even have one myself, :) somewhere. If YOU want to put one up for Nobody, please understand Nobody Is In Charge and have fun. If you want to tell me about it, fine. What happens after that... Nobody knows for sure.

LINKS - Please Understand Nobody would like to list all of you, but the person that turns on the computer for Nobody, works 16/7/12 and has very little spare time. Nobody will see what can be done to ease this.

TOUR - Being discussed and will be posted.

MOST IMPORTANT - If you really want to do something to help Nobody, take the responsibility to initiate a campaign to put NONE OF THE ABOVE on YOUR VOTER BALLOT. Do this, and Nobody will remember YOU forever.

For the "Curiosity Seeker", since you asked: Flying Snail

I also have to thank Mikey, for 'waking me up'... thanks mikey (:

Subject: Nobody's Top 5% Award from Lycos received May 1998

I try to keep all links up to date and discovered Nobody was no longer listed in the Top 5% at Lycos and a search produced: "Your Search for Nobody for President returned no results", so I sent them a note asking if I should remove the award and received the following reply:

"It may be that your review was removed by our reviewer a few months ago when we did a lot of housekeeping. It's kind of a moot point, because, as of Friday of this week, Top 5% will no longer be a stand-alone product on Lycos. So your award would have no meaning anyway...."

Well, it meant 'a lot' to me and I mention this because Nobody would NOT display an award that was not received!

Thanks Hank!


It has come to my attention some of you can not see the java script banner running across the bottom of your browser. Here is what it says:


This is a story about four people: EVERYBODY, SOMEBODY, ANYBODY, and NOBODY.

There was an important job to be done and EVERYBODY was sure that SOMEBODY would do it.

ANYBODY could have done it, but NOBODY did it.

SOMEBODY got angry about that, because it was EVERYBODY's job.

EVERYBODY thought ANYBODY could do it, but NOBODY realized that EVERYBODY wouldn't do it.

It ended up that EVERYBODY blamed SOMEBODY when NOBODY did what ANYBODY could have done.

Of all the choices for President, who is perfect?


Who lowered the taxes?


Who lowered the gas prices?


Who brought peace to our times?


Who balanced the budget?


Who lives forever and works for nothing?


Who stopped censorship on the net?


Who loves you when you're down and out?


Who bakes apple pie better than Mom?


and NOBODY will continue to do these things until SOMEBODY takes the responsibility to get the job done!



and repeats.

Subject: No List for Nobody

On the 24th of August I suggested starting a list for Nobody and, to date, I have received 9 responses.

This morning I responded to those folks who had an interest in this and got two 'bounced' addresses (remember, I can only reply to the address you give me), Jerry-M and Valerie if you are still interested please send me your address again.

In case you are interested, the responses amounted to a very small fraction of less than 1% of the number of visitors Nobody got during this time period!

We are also considering putting Nobody's videos in RealAudio/Video format.

Subject: Wavy Gravy's 'Blues Period' collage exhibition and list report

Wavy asked me to tell you about an art opening he is having tomorrow night (October 3, 1998) at the Smokehouse Cafe, 1458 Lincoln Ave, Calistoga, California (near the glider port and next to the old train cars). Music will be provided by "The Urban Blues Band", featuring Barry 'The Fish' Melton. The time will be 7pm until 11pm, the first 100 folks get a free pint of Ben & Jerry's ice cream, the event is FREE, and any 'monies' generated will be given to Seva Foundation.

A lot of folks drop by this site every day and six of you have shown an interest in getting Nobody on the ballot. I'll give it another month and let you know where 'things' stand.

Subject: Nobody needs your help

(breaking news) "Nobody knows what the political temperature will be" - Bob Franken, CNN.

The Nobody for President campaign uses humor to encourage people to register and vote for the candidate of their choice. The campaign was initiated because 50% +/- of the folks who could vote, DO NOT vote and one could say Nobody was/is winning the elections. We also feel the American people get trapped, too often, in "selecting the lesser of evils" and should have the option "None of the Above" on the voter ballot.

'My' indicators (at this moment) show a probable increase in apathy for the next presidential election. In my opinion, this is a sad state for our country and here is what I am willing to do about it: I will manage a list for Nobody to discuss how to get "None of the Above" on every state ballot. Those of you who have managed lists know it is a lot of work and if there is a REAL interest I will establish the list. If YOU are interested, go back to Nobody's home page and click on the Comment button at the bottom and send Nobody a message saying YES LIST.

Results will be posted (here) in a few months. If the response is favorable, I will post a note (here) on how to subscribe.

Minor updates on cafeend.html, alter.html, and tour.html.

Wavy is doing fine after his neck operation.

I try to answer all mail coming via the comments section, but a lot of the addresses bounce... so if you didn't receive a reply, maybe there was a typo (I only get what you give me).

Several have mentioned that I need to update certain areas and I agree. These areas will be caught up soon.

I want to thank you all again for the great participation.

Don't forget to check out the "realaudio" music in the United State Cafe section. I know it's old stuff, but, it gives an idea of what was happening around the time Nobody took charge.

Nobody appreciates the kind support YOU have provided!
