Hour of Slack #1592 - For a Few Stark Fistfulls of Dollars More

"Is there anything that fanboys don't resent?" - Rev. Baby Bear

Recorded July 1st at 19X-Day Drill -- yet as raw as today's headlines! It's Dr. Hal, Rev. Baby Bear and Rev. Stang in front of an audience at Wisteria, until half an hour in, when Stang gives up the chair to Rev. Argus Faux. This conversation chugged along so smoothly that there is not a single edit in the single one-hour recording! We have no idea what happened. It's just the three or four people talking, with some background music, and yet there was nothing to remove - and only three cuss words! Go figure. Each of the four spouters goes off on a full-blown rant at least once during the proceedings. If you want to know what we talked about without listening to the show, you'll just have to look at the detailed logs we always post in the Hour of Slack Radio section of

Hour of Slack #1591 - Creationists Vs. Destructionists

Introducing the great song, "Superpsychonaziracisttrumpispsychopathic" by Rev. Jimmy Ryan. We really did move the whole station to the 9th MegaFisTemple Lodge on Dokstok Mountain, Stang Ranch, Stangsville, Texas. We will include Lonesome Cowboy Dave by phone in future shows produced there, but tonight we’re playing all manner of leftover stuff, spillovers, recent SubGenius Head Launching News commentary from Radio Synaesthesia on WCSB, some poetry by Rev. Andrew Genus from 18X-Day, some Charles Dawkins remixed by Rev. Experimental, Please, and part two of the second 19 X-Day show with Dr. Howland Owl and Rev. Susie the Floozie (both of whom have hosted their own SubGenius radio shows for decades, in San Francisco and Atlanta respectively). Stang and Dr. Hal share news of Stang's favorite local neighborhood Creationist Museum, and plans for a competing roadside attraction at Stang Ranch involving fossil alien, devil and SubGenius skeletons. "NOAH'S ARK SANK HERE $5!"

Hour of Slack #1590 - Tarzan's Radio Station of Monsters

One preacher each from all three Old Time SubGenius Radio Hours! Special Guests Dr. Hal and Rev. Susie the Floozie joined Rev. Stang for shows in front of a live audience at 19X-day, and this is the second of several. Although the conversation veers and careens all over the place, the subject of monsters (such as SubGeniuses) inevitably keeps rearing its rear, so Rev. Stang has chosen to intercut some cute yet pertinent lines and songs from the lastest Monster High movie (part of a toy franchise for weird little girls). There's also a nice slice of Podcrust for the starving, on which one might spread some Doktorjam from Wednesday night on the Wisteria stage. (This jam still sounds good to Stang even after he got hearing aids.) We're posting this episode early because The SubGenius Foundation office will be on the road next week, migrating to Stangsville, Texas for the winter.

Hour of Slack #1589 - The Show That Refused to Die Again

Last show from Cleveland for the next 6 months, and first show after Stang finally got HEARING AIDS! However we're taking Tarzan's Radio Station to Stang Ranch in deepest rural Texas for the winter and plan to somehow tie Lonesome Cowboy Dave's cell phone into it. This episode includes, besides the somewhat politics-tainted surrealist live section, Billy West as Zap Brannigan as Donald Trump, a new "Bob" song by Rev. Experimental, Please, X-Day recordings including a new Rev. Amy MmHmm song, Thorazine Urine Podcrust on Scrum addiction, a short clip from Bobbie School By Rev. Watt deFalk, and The Song That Refused to Die, continuing to refuse to die.

Hour of Slack #1588 -

This one is strangely insane at first and then becomes strangely sane. We start with some 19X-Day live recordings of bands/ranters/podcrusts. Stang performs "The Song That Refused to Die" -- well, the first iteration of it, anyway. True to form, throughout the whole festival, that song never once died. It only simmered down a bit and disguised itself. We also hear some live Thorazine Urine Podcrust, which, like the bands, was recorded outdoors on the Wisteria stage. You can hear the owls if you listen closely over the horrible SubGenius screaming. Stang gives a little impromptu numerology lecture. Then we go live at WCSB, but Dave is late to call in, so Stang reads an ancient SubDiscordian prophecy from 1994 (found that morning in a box in the garage). When Dave calls in, the strangely sane part begins, and it's strangely not super-funny. For you see, we're starting to fret about this election thing, and the paranoid little old men who are afraid to shop at WalMart without carrying automatic weapons because there are jihadists under every bed in every kitchen. The fear that drives fairy tales and deplorables is dissected and pickled for consumption later.

Hour of Slack #1587 - Strange Podcrusts and The Clintonbot That Refused to Die

"For one thing, there is no such thing as the Internet, and none of that stuff is real. You're imagining it, and everybody imagines something slightly different, but mostly pretty much the same. That's how They get away with it." This episode may sound a bit challenging in spots, but is rich with a vibe of Slack. We've been breaking down the recordings from the first three days of the 19X-Day Drill (actually the 21st Drill), and extracting the juicy parts from the hours of chaotic contagious creativity. Some of it sounds REALLY insane, especially the Thorazine Urine Podcrust segments and the Wotan jamming that coursed through it. Lots of new voices, too! After that, the WCSB studio half starts with Lonesome Cowboy Dave calling in. The was recorded on 9-11 of "2016," when the so-called "Hillary Clinton" entity accidentally revealed its true undying nature. Horrifying! -- for some people anyway. Marx vs. Stooge and WalMart vs. Target shooting wars are discussed, among other things. Heck, it's... all over the place. SubGeniuses that Stang accidentally left out of the credits (until later) were Rev. A.P. O'Stacy, Rev. Bovver, Rev. Eggplant, and probably at least two others that we still haven't remembered.

Hour of Slack #1586 -

Close Enclownters! Dave, Wei and Stang discuss the evil lurking clowns in the news lately(not Trump, this time) and the threat of clown hunts. The live section is a regular pie fight. But the first half is Best Of 19X-Day Rants #3, with a killer autobiographical sermon by Rev. Angus Faux, a somewhat shorter sermon of encouragement from Rev. Stang (both with major Rock God and Angry Lord Larry guitar backing), another lovely original Rev. Amy MmHmm song, and the Hour of Slack premiere of Thorazine Urine Podcrust, who performed their 100th X-Day podcrust this year -- HOURS of it, of which this week's clip is but the barest scratch in the surface!

Hour of Slack #1585 - Lonesome Cowboy Dave's Chronic Jib plus 19XD-BO2

First up are some good samples from 19X-Day: two memorable new songs by St. Andrew the Impaled and Rev. Amy MmHmm, and two new improvised rants by Revs. Faux and Stang with guitar god backing (Lord Angry Larry and Lord Rock God). We also have a DEVO cover that Rev. Bleepo Abernathy had something to do with. Captain Ahab (Gregory Peck) spouts off about that darn old whale, or maybe "Bob." And Rev. Jimmy Ryan rawks. But the focus of the live talk part of the show are two songs from an ancient 45 rpm record by The Chronics, a punk band of some reknown from the late 1970s that featured our favorite lonesome cowboy, Dave, when he was a tiny little youth. Dave instructs us about The Chronics and reveals yet more secrets about his surreal life among the corruptigating worms.

Hour of Slack #1584 - Trump Vs. DEVO

First up is the amazing brand new Rudy Schwartz Project song, "It's Time for Trump." We think this might become a widely replayed song. We have new music and a new rant from new contributors Rev. Experimental and Rev. Watt deFalk, respectively; two Rev. Jimmy Ryan pieces; Rev. Bleepo Abernathy covers the TMBG song "Am I Awake?" and we get two songs from Xposed 4Heads and one from The Fantastic Plastics, both of whom performed at the 2016 DEVOtional in Cleveland the night before this show was recorded, and about which StangDoe rhapsodize at length when Lonesome Cowboy Dave calls in. Subjects: The Bathroom People. SubGenius Horror Hosts and the OSI74 ROKU channel of SubGeniusly programming. Stang's health report. The insanity of the electorate. When the FBI caravan comes to town. When Dave got beaten by cops for three hours. ((Background music is all by CyberChump's "Their Moment of Perfect Happiness" (related to Xposed 4Heads).)) P.S. Stang was wrong, the first movie version of “I Am Legend” was titled “The Last Man on Earth”.

Hour of Slack #1583 - Rants and Music of X-Day / Live WCSB

First half is great rants, music and Other from 19X-Day: Rev. Nugget's nugget; some random Faux, Wei and Baby Bear; rip-snortin' guitar work by Angry Lord Larry and Lord Rock God; a heart-whacking duet by St. Andrew the Impaled and amazing singer Rev. Amy MmHmm; Stang and other Wotanners go down in The Medicine Fish Hole; and a kazoo masterpiece duet by Rev. Anna Maul and Rev. A. P. O'Stacy Fnord. When Lonesome Cowboy Dave calls at the halfway point, music from X-Day continues in the background. (Other musicians PROBABLY include Rev. Hazel of the Windmills, Dr. Shoggoth, Rev. Walter Cozmac, Rev. Sinphaltimus Exxmortis, Lord Ferg, Assmaster Fidd Chewley, Rev. Peas, Radio Mike.) The discussion with Dave is another one of those kind that all seven Trump-admiring SubGeniuses might just want to skip, because it is meant to be extremely insulting, demeaning, and belittling.
