Joe "Catfish" Provo's Durn Web Pages

Somewhere there's a smile with my name on it.

-The Replacements


Every page on the net is "under construction". These pages are "under mutation"; they change every time they are visited, barring a few nescessary constants. If you're lazy enough to stay here fifteen minutes and your browser supports META tags, we'll reload the page for you.

Service offer: send me unsolicited, "bulk" (commercial or non) email, and I'll proof it for 50 dollars a line! See here for more info on my valuable offer!

If you want to be blackholed at the gweep.net mail server, thou currish hell-hated flirt-gill, send mail to my old flame-bucket or to an old address. If you don't like something about these pages, or wish to correlate address scraping thou bawdy jolthead, send mail to my current flame-bucket. If you like something about these pages, send mail to web-comment where scraped appears in the mailto link.

Want more spew? There's something about Church names that stick in my head...

And as a parting shot, meditate upon this classic Zen koan:

One misty morning, a student was walking by a large tree when she saw a master.
Said the student to the master: "How can I experience goodness?"
Upon hearing this, the master hit the student three times with a branch.
Then, a beatific smile of Satori came across the seeker.

Cheers,
