"It's not about lights in the sky; it is about lies on the ground."


Searching for the next Art Bell.


The Digibarn (more than a museum). Must be seen to be believed.


21 August 2017, starts at 10:15AM Pacific Time in Oregon, ends at 2:49PM Eastern Time in South Carolina (about 90 minutes total as it races across the USA).


I serve as one of the contributing editors here, occasionally publishing articles about Libertarian, Green, Constitution and other political parties and their candidates.


Next to Gandantegchinleng Khiid (Great Way to the Cosmos) in Ulaanbaatar, the close-up room at the Magic Castle is my favorite place on the planet!


Home of the techno-archeologists.


Amazing educational theme camp on the playa.


The paradigm -- we are all one family, connected during the Big Bang. Earthlings, Milkywayans, Universers -- our racial, geographic, and other differences are meaningless.


Never leave home without consulting the latest updates here.


Best RV/Magic Carpet


SETI talks!


ETs as family (brothers and sisters) conference.


How to learn yourself something.


Wonderful film about the Four Noble Truths and Eight Fold Path of Buddhism in the guise of a romantic comedy.


Foster Gamble's website on how to create a planet where "everyone thrives."


The Mecca of all things UFO.


Best magical gathering in Vegas => the best magical gathering ANYwhere!


Personal websites
(ones I own and manage, in addition to this one).

AtlasListed.com, my tribute site to Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged. "Before he shrugged, he listed." A play on listing to one side, and creating a list of items.

BoycottKnotts.com. In 2012 I was awarded the national Distinguished Service Award by the Honor Society of the Boy Scouts of America. I've declined to accept that award, and have urged other adults in the BSA to decline accepting all such awards (why do adults in the "Boy" Scouts need awards anyway?) "until an openly gay adult volunteer can present it to me."

BuchmanForCongress.com, the website for my 2008 Campaign as the Libertarian Candidate in Utah's First District, my past experience as a "whistle blower," why I lobby for legislation to protect them, and why I think Congress should pass Whistle Blower Protection legislation, and then hold Hearings on "waste, fraud, criminal activity, and the ET issue."

Buchmans.us. My family genealogy site. Of most interest to most visitors is my grandfather Ross Buchman's World War I handwritten diary.

Nitecaps.net. My first job in radio (my first job in anything) was working the midnight to 6AM shift at WXVW-AM in Jeffersonville, Indiana "running the board" for "The Herb Jepko Nitecap Show." This is my tribute site to Herb, with links to a few audio clips and articles I've written about him and the show.

ThePeopleOfEarthApologize.com. Over time we have come to know that the universe is teeming with stars, then we learned it is teeming with galaxies, and now we know it is teeming with Earth-like planets, 10 billion of them in our own galaxy, the Milky Way, and 10 billion more habitable planets in each of the 300 or so billion other galaxies. If life is out there, where would you chose to start a conversation? This is my "message in an Internet bottle cast into an ocean of stars" website. (And the one that is the most fun.)
