Groups I Follow

Three Groups That I Follow

1.  The Free Thought Project:  I follow them because they offer a wide variety of news not typically reported by the main stream media.  This is the group that I learned about the Mandela Effect from and they often report on developing scientific concepts.

2.  Dawn Lutrell.  She a local comedian famous for her impersonations of Ellen Degeneres and her unique humor based on being a recovering addict.  I follow her because I saw one of her first shows at Linn County Fair Grounds and I think that she might be famous some day.

3.Mandela Effect.  I follow this group because it explores examples and possible causes of The Mandela Effect.  Also it is a closed group so the discussions tend to be free of trolls and skeptics.



My Favorite Tweet

About Me

Hi!  I'm Jason. I grew up in Newport but moved to the valley the summer before 9th grade. After graduating in 2003, I trained in Culinary Arts but after a week working in an actual restaurant, I realized I couldn't make as a chef. So I found a desk job and worked at almost every call center between Eugene and Portland during the next ten years. Last summer, I realized that my 20's really were gone and I had yet to live that old quote from Mark Twain, so I enrolled at LB and spent my first 3 semester s taking classes seemingly at random trying to find something that I could enjoy doing for the rest of my life. Then I found this class while browsing summer courses and decided that I might be able to develop my passion for politics and news into a career. .My interest in the media started in 8th grade when I was grounded to my room with only an AM radio for entertainment and discovered talk radio. Lars, Rush and Art Bell fascinated me because they reported the news deeper tha…
