The SubGenius Hour of Slack Podcast
The Church of the SubGenius Weekly Radio Ministry

Great new unheard music in the first half and an unusually energetic talk tantrum in the last half. Liberty Tubes, John Shirley, Little Fyodor, The Slot Rods, 100,000 Leagues Under My Nutsack. Stang is all apped up, "luming" on "apps" and reverting into a pathetically apologetic Social Justice Puppy. Just disgusting. Lonesome Cowboy Dave makes his own confessions. All most unseemly.

Once again, Radio Synaesthesia features Dr. Hal, Stang, Wei, L. C. Dave and callers to WCSB Cleveland, July 1 "2019," just before leaving for 22X-Day. But first, there's much new music and diversion, such as a new Trump song by Li'l Fyodor and Babushka (!), new Slot Rods, podcrusting SubGeniuses of 20X-Day (1917) including Peas, Shoggoth and Eggplant; new Psycho-Skel, and a fabulous heavy metal anthem called "New Freak Nation" by St. Andrew the Impaled/The Liberty Tubes. Discussion topics: Hitler on a cross. Ordering beer in China. "SubGenius figures" at Starwood 2019. Stang and Doe preview their new dog-rot-rock-pot-pop-X-Day opera "Buddy." Sausage Party. Furries. Aging SLAK Squad assassins for "Bob." Other shows confused with Hour of Slack. Hal sings "Green Acres" in a very special way. Dr. Sinister's SubGenius rant!

First half is possibly-familiar songs sounding very new indeed, thanks to recent studio-produced CDs by Rev. Angry Larry's The Slot Rods, St. Andru the Impaled's Liberty Bell band, and Pissbaptist John Shirley. We even get to hear some of the just-unearthed ancestral recordings from 2017's 20 X-Day, with a kind of podcrust by Revs. Shoggoth, Peas and Eggplant. The rest of the episode is Wei and Stang bragging and griping to Donesome Lowboy Cave about the cool and horrible stuff that happened during the two weeks of 22X-Day and Starwood 39, such as: clowns saved the day. The tiny-headed "Bob" effigy with elephantiasis. The X-Day Pie. Brainwashed "Bob" cultists. President Vermin Supreme showed up, pony shat on stage at start of Stang's big rant. Megaphonics. Replica Oscar Meyer WeinerMobile driven by David Apocalypse, jumped three flaming cars. The Toolbox of Death. Fascist Klowns. Changing tires while changing genders. Sausage and FlapJack Fest. The Greying of the Nude SubGeniuses. Go back to England! Go back to Italy and stomp grapes! Workshop in toilet-paper launching. Triology SubGenius Soaps. Ends with a laid-back John Shirley song about a guy who is falling out of a plane to his death.

Recorded June 30 at WCSB-Cleveland, just before leaving town for 22X-Day (now known as the 24th X-Day Drill), with Dr. Hal joining Ivan Stang and Princess Wei in the studio and Lonesome Cowboy Dave by phone. The show starts with ten minutes of an amazing Aliens/UFOs-themed collage made by Rev. Susie the Floozie in years past, then the on-air discussions veers through the X-Day prophecy of "Bob" Dobbs, the glories of Dave, the "Bob" masks from SIKRIK.COM, the SubGenius documentary's latest foreign film festival showings, False Christians, Jim Naborsworld and Opie's movies, Leprechauns, Stang's Paradox ("I Must Yet I Cannot"), Ro-Man quotes by Hal, Romany/Gypsy/Travelers, the market in human fat, WHY NOT GOATS?, the Church of Satan's goat-devil statue, The "Bob" Movie Posters, the Photo-"Bob" controversy, Rocknar the Cannon-Fodder Volunteer and his Happy Hooker escapade, bone spurs, Pope Perro vs. Pope Black, the discovery that Ol' Sequaw is in fact an INFANT, the earthquakes in Cleveland, and the end of the show… for now, as it continues for two more hours that night (to be heard next week(s)).

We're still at the Wisteria campground for 22X-Day/Starwood, recording new shows, but this is an unreleased (and very WEIRD) show recorded two years ago at 20X-Day. This one features (in order of appearance): Rev. Faux, Rev. Peas, Mother Miller, Rev. Anna Maul, Rev. Shoggoth, Rev. Eggplant and finally Rev. Stang, eating the hell out of his one annual summer hamburger.

By the time most people hear this, we will have recorded several NEW shows at WCSB and 22X-Day -- but we won't be able to edit and release those immediately, because we'll be too busy destroying everything about the Earth that we ever found mildly inconvenient, and grabbing up all the really cool stuff for ourselves. Plus, a lot of great SubGenius regulars can't be there this year, such as Rev. Susie the Floozie, Argus Faux, Uncle Dr. Onan Canobite, and Rev. Peas. BUT THEY WERE ALL THERE IN 2017 AND DID SOME GREAT SHOWS -- which haven't been heard until NOW! Because Stang just re-found them, after forgetting them in the big move to Texas that year. And it's some of the BEST STUFF! First up, we have some selections from Rev. Susie's X-Day collage barrage extravaganza from the 90s, then, Rev. Faux and Rev. Cosmac with Susie at 20 X-Day, then some more Susie collage, then about 20 minutes more from the show with Dr. Hal, Stang and Onan, some of which we played last week.

We're gearing up for X-Day by playing some great stuff that was recorded two X-Day Drills ago, in 2017, but forgotten when Stang and Wei then moved to Texas. (Lots more of that unheard footage to come, too!) This includes part of a show with Dr. Hal, Rev. Stang and Dr. Onan Canobite, and a great new "Bob" song that Onan created in the form of a sea shanty, and taught to the X-Day audience. Dave calls in and joins Stang and Wei in a long-ranging discussion about everything; Dr. Sinister joins in near the end. Also: 100,000 Leagues Under my Nutsack, Psycho Skeletons, and a really rare Bob Walkenhorst song, "Broken Radio."

Second half is live WCSB studio bejabberment; Stang was excited due to reading Neal Stephenson's brand-new science fiction novel, FALL, which is partly about the Internet turning all the stupid people of Earth much, much more stupid. (And it is HIDEOUSLY plausible, especially considering the USA's last three years.) Some actual ranting happens, quite spontaneously. Before that there's lots of Lemurian collage, and music by 100,000 Leagues, Al Mothersbaugh, The Psycho Skeletons and others.

Last week, the mysterious Cleveland band known as 100,000 Leagues Under My Nutsack revealed themselves (himself, actually: Maxar Berezium) on Dr. Sinister's WCSB show, Radio Synaesthesia, which follows Hour of Slack on Sunday nights. Three unexpectedly PRETTY songs by are unveiled, along with some funny interview excerpts. (Stang and Wei were impressed.) Also excerpted from earlier WCSB shows is an interview about Starwood Festival with four of its organizers, extracted from the Sustainable Love Corporation show. Other new music includes a killer cut from an Al Mothersbaugh solo album, and a Rev. Jimi Ryan instrumental (a bit of a Hendrix tribute). Collages by LeMur and Rev. Silas Janzen add even more of the requisite trippiness. And then Lonesome Cowboy Dave calls in to discuss (separately) underground comix artists and the end of another short-lived Democracy fad. Thanks to Stang's expert clean-up editing, only WCSB listeners who caught this episode live will know how many technical screw-ups we suffered.

They loved it. So far, Sandy Boone's feature length documentary film "J.R. "Bob" Dobbs and the Church of the SubGenius" has only been shown at three film festivals, but every showing has been very successful in terms of turnout, audience response, and SubGenius Doktor approval. EVEN PAUL MAVRIDES likes it! EVEN DOUG WELLMAN!! These are the pickiest possible audiences! Stang and Sandy Boone are greatly relieved. The San Francisco Doktors, and Sandy, attended the showing and did a Q&A with audience later. THEN, a bunch of them did a FIVE-HOUR RADIO SHOW at KPFA, encompassing both the Over the Edge slot and the Puzzling Evidence slot in the wee hours of Friday morning. We extracted all talk about the movie (and often subsequent tangents) from the first three hours, and those excerpts comprise the first half hour of this episode. Participants are Puzzling Evidence, Dr. Hal, Phineas Narco, Michael Peppe (I think), and a male and a female that are not identified. Those clips are interspersed with collages by recent new contributor Rev. Silas Janzen. The second half hour of the show is the usual standard ordinary everyday garden-variety conversation between hosts Rev. Stang and Princess Wei and Eternal Special Guest Caller Lonesome Cowboy Dave.

Another Cleveland-style episode featuring that incomparable one-of-a-kind American natural resource, Lonesome Cowboy Dave. No one else on the whole planet talks even remotely like he does. He's kept in the can for the first half hour, though, which has new and old media barrages, mash-ups and insane conversational bouts from older SubGenius radio shows. Contributors (some inadvertent) include LeMur, Bill McClintock, Puzzling Evidence, Dr. Hal, ESO Swamp Radio with Chas Smith, LC Dave, Dr. Legume and Stang, The Psycho Skeletons, Sister Melodious Chops (with Princess Wei), and Pope Sternodox, with a long unpublished rant by Rev. Stang and new audio collages by Rev. Silas Janzen. The rest of the show is one of those conversations with Lonesome Cowboy Dave for which we can think of no other radio talk show comparison. For better or worse, there is nothing else like Lonesome Cowboy Dave.

Stang is back in Ohio and this is the first show produced back at WCSB-Cleveland, with Princess Wei in the studio, in almost two years! (Save one, last July.) Their microphones sure are better than the ones at Tarzan's, and the telepathic connection with Perennial Guest Star Lonesome Cowboy Dave is vastly improved by closer proximity to his lair in Ashtabula, Ohio. In this Internet version, there is some banter with outgoing DJ Brother Love, as he welcomes us back to the station, and then there's the standard completely nonstandard twenty minutes of canned but utterly new (to Stang anyway) music and Lemurian collages, plus a new "media barrage" recipe from Rev. Elvis Martini. Rev. Uncle Dr. Onan Canobite delivers a killer Brag at the beginning, and he also suggested the music: a song about Jack Parsons by The Claypool Lennon Delerium, and a Slack-centric song by Big Audio Dynamite II. At the very end are instrumentals by Jimmy Ryan and Onan. Four of the tracks in this show had the word "dog" in the file names. Sample sentences from the live discussion: "If we were sick enough to think of it as a joke, somebody else was already sick enough to actually do it." "The voices you've been hearing aren't ours." "Sign away the memories of whatever you're signing away, so you don't miss it." "Praise the Holy Goats.

A killer rerun from 2004! It sorta kinda captures the madness of that week-long weirdness-fest, 7X-Day. This legendary gathering of the Saved in rural New York State was officiated by such luminaries as Dr. Philo Drummond, Colonel Sphinx Drummond, Dr. G. Gordon Gordon, Little Fyodor & Babushka, Rev. Susie the Floozie, The Swingin' Love Corpses, Popess Lilith, the young preaching prodigy Rev. Alex Thompson, and The Amino Acids; there was also a lot of great SubGenius radio commentary from Puzzling Evidence, Radio Synaesthesia and Lymph Node Institute. Most amazing is Acid Corps: the incestuous collaboration between The Swingin' Love Corpses and The Amino Acids! There's also a rare SubG song by The El Queso All-Stars about Prairie Squid, and The Planet Smashers doing "Porno Planet Orgy"! This show was assembled back when Stang's back would still let him sit at a desk for hours, editing and editing. Stang's back now insists otherwise.

This one's pretty rant-heavy. Onan advises Rev. Funnyname, and reads from SubGenius Pamphlet #1. Rev. Stang reads from Ken's Guide to The Bible and from a Hypercube rant. Dr. Hal and Dr. Philo Drummond do "show" at the 21X-Day Drill. Music comes from Chip the Black Boy and The Psycho Skeletons.

This rerun from around 1991 features some of the best from our large hoard of prank call tapes -- and not the ones everybody's heard before, like Tube Bar and Jerky Boys. These are the REAL PROs, originally compiled by our friend Lou Minatti. Many snippets of the infamous "Arnie and Barney Vs. Binny" tapes are featured, plus "Calls to Okies" and "The Drunk Preacher." Interspersed are some of the WEIRDEST tunes from some mystery collection of po'bucker music, plus the legendary "Half-Assed Drunk" by Doktorz 4 "Bob" and "My Girlfriend is a Po'Bucker" by The Swingin' Love Corpses. Some excellent spontaneous preaching by the great Dr. G. Gordon Gordon, as well as Sister Velveteen Sly, both from the second Chicago SubConvention, lend class to this otherwise classless collection; likewise some Puzzling Evidence, also with GGG and also Glassmadness. But mostly it's an orgy of lowbrow hijinks!

This is one HELL of a rerun, since much of it takes place in Hell. Much of it comes from a rip-roaring live ESO Swamp Radio show of the year 2000 or so, and it's a wonderful example of the days when Prof. Chas Smith was still alive and producing amazing improv shows. He, Rev. Stang, Princess Wei  and the Lonesome Cowboy were particularly inspired on this one, and it's hard to believe none of it was scripted. We sure were FASTER back in those days... There's a subplot involving murder on the high seas, but the main story is the ongoing infinities of torture meted out to, first, Dave, and then poor Stang. One of our very favorite oldies!

This one's an all chock-a-block mash-up of mash-ups. Rev. Susie the Floozie pointed us to some very novel video/audio mash-ups on YouTube, especially some by Bill McClintock -- expert combinations of popular music from disparate periods in time and styles. Smushed in between those are excerpts from fired-up SubGenius devival rants (Stang and ESO from 2000, and Pope David Meyer from 1983) and Bold Surrealist radio shows such as Puzzling Evidence, Time for the Show (with Dr. Philo Drummond guesting) and the Maul-Brujaja duo. There's also media barrages, new music by The Psycho Skeletons and Massive Hotdog Recall, and Brother Cleve "Donut" Dunkan's great Dobbs hymn, ""Bob" Is My Load (and He's Comin' Again)".

All the insane-sounding collages of "Bob" Dobbs bulldada come from the great Fernandinande LeMur. Some ranting about the War on God is by Stang and Einstein's Secret Orchestra in the Pufferdome at Starwood Festival of 2000. A Puzzling Evidence clip with Dr. Hal talking about the hot link of X-Day is even older, the 1980s, and we hear Nenslo's great song "There's a Feller Down in Texas", recorded at a big devival either in Portland or Seattle, in the 1990s. But all the rest is a chat with Lonesome Cowboy Dave, covering, as usual, everything and nothing.

This is one of those rare Hours of Slack that's a documentary about the making of a documentary. Actually it's a documentary about the WATCHING of a documentary about those doing the watching. Recursive! The feature documentary film about us, "J.R. "Bob" Dobbs and The Church of the SubGenius," directed by Sandy Boone, had a very enthusiastic reception from audiences and reviewers at its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, and the SubGenius movie stars and friends had a BLAST! Sandy Boone tricked us into parading down the street holding signs and preaching loudly to the unsaved, and also into performing an impromptu mini-devival in the outdoor yard of the George Washington Carver Museum. Stang reflexively recorded those. Also this episode unveils -- get ready -- NEW REVELATIONS DIRECT FROM "BOB" HIMSELF!!! -- collected by Rev. Elvis Martini and read by Rev. Stang. Also: the beloved but suppressed SubGenius forbidden science lecture (with sound effects) by Dr. Ahmed Fishmonger about the basic sub-para-atomic particle, THE MUTRON. And: Massive Hot Dog Recall.

This one's a continuation of last week's show composed of three shows, starting with Part Two of the interview about that SubGenius movie with me and Sandy Boone on Lights Camera Austin. Following that: the last 8 minutes of Dr. Philo Drummond on the Puzzling Evidence show before he left California. And then, as threatened, more of that horrible Time for the Show show, where Stang had to call in using his laptop and sketchy wifi, which made for weird drunken-sounding time lags. Also: the soundtrack of the trailer for Sandy's fancy documentary movie about the Church!

This episode consists of the first parts of three other shows! First up is Dr. Philo Drummond's last in-person Puzzling Evidence appearance, from June 2017 just before he moved to Dokstok Mountain. Next up is part of an Austin radio show about movies, Lights Camera Austin, with Rev. Stang and director Sandy Boone being interviewed about the SubGenius documentary movie (premiering at SXSW in March). Finally there's the beginning of a very strange Time for the Show show, with Rev. Stang calling in on a crappy Discord line from his laptop, because those hosts must have wanted Stang to sound much drunker than he actually was. HOWEVER! The show opens with a Massive Hotdog Recall sign about America's first transgender mayor, and a new sermon (or reflection rather) by Uncle Dr. Onan Canobite. Titles and Gnus by LeMur as usual.

On X-Day, we'll get all our brain cells back, and our hearing, and eyesight, and maybe even our judgment. In the meantime, enjoy these Old Doktorz while they're still merely old and not yet either dead or repurposed. This is one of those OLD-old-fashioned shows with Lonesome Cowboy Dave and a few new old bands, in this case Massive Hotdog Recall and Walkenhorst, covering Cash. There's another glimpse of Philo Drummond and Rev. Bleepo Abernathy in the Hour of Slack Rest Home. All the rest of it is about the liberation of your mind… and our minds.

This Hour of Slack is actually SOMEBODY ELSE'S SHOW, an hour-long interview with Dr. Philo Drummond. Last summer, our friend Rev. Snappy Twig recorded this historic interview -- historic because you hardly ever get to hear Philo without other radio doctors jumping from subject to subject, and I think it better reveals the way Dr. Drummond's minds work now, and worked when the SubGenius outreach was first being planned. Rev. Snappy Twig, under his human street name "Sean," has a podcast called "SHARE A SLICE WITH SEAN", which you can find at shareaslicepodcast.com. His web page for this episode includes over a dozen really excellent links to various other SubGenius and related websites that you might be really glad to know about. He did a great job editing this and in encouraging Philo to tell the strange but true story of how the Church grew in the late 70s and early 80s. It's a fine companion to the documentary movie about the Church that's premiering at SXSW film festival in March.

We got some new music for you. Fresh! Hip! Swingin'! Well, maybe not hip. And the musicians themselves are not especially fresh. But the songs ARE! For instance, Massive Hotdog Recall -- with a name like that, and the only trombone solos that I know of in the rock genre, how can one go wrong? (The band leader is Al Mothersbaugh, cousin to the Devonian Mothersbaughs.) We also excavated some Rainmakers/Walkenhorst that we scraped off the sides of some lesser-known Bob albums, and we're re-exposing one of the many incredible fossil pieces mixed by Kings of Feedback (aka Bill T. Miller/O.B.E.) back when SubGenius Musicians worked REALLY HARD. Rev. Ivan Stang reads some shiny, sparkling new rants from Universal Uncle Onan Canotbite and Zigmunt Figment ("Yes, Promiscua, There Is a "Bob."). Stang and Lonesome Cowboy Dave ramble around by phone for a mere 25 minutes total, sticking to important subjects like the new "Bob" rubber masks and UFOs (Unidentified Floating Objects, this time). There's even some ranting about "Bob" himself, just like in the olden days!

It's Old Coots Night again, but this time we mix it up with music and radio theater. Rev. Priest has a very catchy new song, "I'm a SubGenius Preacher;" Morgan Gutentag has a song with a gimmick; The Psycho Skeletons have a new instrumental from Beyond; and we hear a classic Bleepo Abernathy Earworm, "On and Off the Road with "Bob." Bleepo whips out a Firesign Theatre-influenced "radio bit" he did in 1979 with The Duke of Madness, a Boston DJ at the time, and premieres a new Bleepo Earworm. Philo, Bleepo and Stang have all been doing radio literally for decades, and yet they still ramble on. We hear true tales of losing and gaining family farms to Snidely Whiplash and Jasper Johns. Philo has skeletons on his farm. Philo has new albums coming and runs potential album names by us. Church Secrets are revealed (yawn) and old survivors bemoan our younger friends who were untimely snatch'd from this Vale of Tears and Yuks.The Firesign Theatre and other weird radio theater comedy is discussed.

Lonesome Cowboy Dave called in sick, so Stang called in Doktors: Dr. Philo Drummond (co-SubFounder of the Church, OverMan First Degree), and Rev. Bleepo Abernathy, radio professional and character actor. The show starts with one ancient song by each, and then it's another of those "two old guys talking" shows, except it's three old guys with Captain Beefheart instrumentals in the background. We had technical problems at first, about one third of which is included in this edit, but then settled on a merged-call system that worked (FaceTime Audio). So we'll know what to do next time... Meanwhile this might be one of those episodes that makes some listeners yearn for more reruns from the lively barrage shows of the '90s. For those who happen to be greedy for Church Secrets and Church history, however, this one is a treasure trove. Admittedly, it's not so much a Fountain of Youth as a Fountain of Age. (Hey, there's a TITLE!) As always the episode is framed by LeMur tracks, which are somewhat like raccoon footprints, but louder and more exotic.

From Rev. Stang's "intro" script: "Ah yes dear friends, it's rerun time and tonight's is Hour of Slack #786 from March 2001. It's never been rerun since then, and it's a really classic one from the period in the late 90s and early 2001s when Wei and I were working every week with the late great Prof. Chas Smith and Lonesome Cowboy Dave on Chas's ESO Swamp Radio show on WCSB in Cleveland, and we were doing a lot of live shows at the Euclid Tavern with their band Einstein's Secret Orchestra, which also had Bob Mozik on drums, Michelle George on electric violin and, at this one, John Petcovick on lead guitar. And so... let 'er rip."

A rerun of #776 from 2001, when we were all still alive. (MOST of us still are.) With a general running theme of, well, Sex SubGenius Style, it's a mash-up of The old ESO Swamp Radio, Puzzling Evidence, and rants and music from the Winterstar devival, plus an amazing live recording from an Austin devival of the SubGenius supergroup Booger 9000 (members of the Swinging Love Corpses, The Rudy Schwartz Project, and Homicidal Briefcase) performing an amazing medley of Neil Diamond and "Dancin' With a Hard-On" by The Swinging Love Corpses. (Oops, sorry, that's "Dancing with a Heart On" for the broadcast radio audience.) Thus, the all-star old-time SubG Dinosaur cast includes (in their younger days) Dr. Philo Drummond, Colonel Sphinx Drummond, The Rudy Schwartz Project, Puzzling Evidence, Lonesome Cowboy Dave, the late Prof. Chas Smith, Rev. Ivan Stang, and more, from a time when they all talked faster than they do now. Also featured are some keen media-barrage mixes by various lords of alt.binaries.slack, such as Lemur and nu-monet. J. R. "Bob" Dobbs himself is heard briefly, albeit not in human form. CAN YOU SPOT THE SECRET CLIP? Contest winners will be announced next week.

The first and last thirds of this fifth salute to the SubGenius hero and demon Dr. K'taden Legume come from Hour of Slack #467, from late 1993, with Stang reading two newspaper articles about Legume's confrontations with televangelists, in person, in Philadelphia. Then it jumps to the very last things we recorded of Dr. Legume on stage, in this case at 20 X-Day in 2017. Legume discusses chaos, of all things! Also on the panel are Dr. Onan Canobite, Dr. Hal and Rev. Stang, and it ends with the start of the Bulldada Auction. Finally, just because it was part of that old Hour of Slack #467, we take a break from Tales of Legume to hear the very strange but polished APOCALYPSE NOW - THE OPERA from Radio Shorts, some West Coast weirdos we used to trade tapes with.

This is the fourth Dr. Legume Tribute Special Number. It starts with the last Dr. Legume recording that we made, him on a panel with Dr. Hal, Onan Canobite and Stang, at 20 X-Day in 2017, then cuts to one of the very OLDEST recordings of Dr. Legume, from Hour of Slack #467 from 1993. In the first, the most recent, he describes a blood-curdling event that he induced at Starwood Festival in 1993, and in the older recording we hear Stang's actual tape of the dreadful event --plus a rant by Dr. Legume from that same Starwood. Finally we return to the 2017 recording, in which Dr. Legume vividly tells the story of a dire and surreal road trip during the time he was first discovering "Bob" in his heart (and in even worse places).

What are the holidays without Slack and reruns? Sappy, nostalgia-provoking reruns on TV are what Christmas is all about, right? Plus, it gives us a break. This is the hoary old annual traditional Xmas Re-Rerun of #867 (and 921 and 1026, 1077, 1129, 1236, 1338, 1497, 1549, 1602, 1654, etc.), which was itself a condensation of some ancient year's 3-show "Best of Xmas Sickness" compilation, which were themselves the concentrated best-of from 15 years' worth of previous Xmas SubGenius and other Xmas weirdo collections, going back to the show's beginning in 1985 at KNON, Dallas. Includes over 66 separate tracks/songs/bits! And no, not one bit has been changed in all these years. Now that's Slack!

This third tribute show to Dr. K'taden Legume is one of those Internet-only "X-rated" shows, featuring rants that are so unsafe for work that were we to edit out the cussing and triggers, there's be almost nothing left. Begins with the original super-infamous "Rape Bear" allegory that some newly "P.C.-minded" members quit the Church over, followed by several even more brutal (and hilarious) fables and children's stories. The true stoy of Beer God Hunger Fucker, "Bob's" ill-fated chain of fast-food joints is revealed. There's much more recent ranting from the 2017 X-Day live radio shows, with Dr. Legume joined by Rev. Susie the Floozie, Rev. Faux and Rev. Peas. It's not all Legume; three profane and/or obscene songs are included, two from the lastest Rudy Schwartz Project album "Postal Code for Ham."

We continue the homage to the late Dr. Legume with some of his classic rants from radio shows, devivals and X-Day Drills, from 1996 to 2017. Legume often guested on both Prozak Free Radio with Ed Strange and on Chas Smith's ESO Swamp Radio. Rant subjects include Butthurt Bobbies, The Planet of Broken Glass, and False Christians; at the end, he turns into a whale. In between the recordings, Stang expounds on the good Doktor and the Old Days.

It's true. Dr. K'taden Legume has Boarded the Saucers. This time it's for real. His passing has left a Dr. Legume-sized hole in the fabric of the SubGenius Universe, and we're vainly trying to fill it with this tribute, replaying some of his classic sermons, rants and radio call-ins from over the last 26 years. This bonus-length Internet version features his complete, uncut 1996 World Tour devival rant in Madison, his 2002 Akron devival sermon, his amazing performance at the 2007 Baltimore show, the 2011 X-Day preaching on SubGenius Butthurt, and some very weird call-in moments from Chas Smith's old ESO Swamp Radio show on WCSB Cleveland. Almost everybody who went to X-Day Drills probably met Dr. Legume, who practically invented them. He was a truly giant figure in the real-world social part of The Church of the SubGenius as well as its doctrinal side as seen in our books and audio recordings.

The title refers to Rev. Dr. Uncle Onan Canobite, not the Biblical "sin." Herein are two great Onan rants on basic (and yet yet all-new!) SubGenius dogma, one delivered by Onan and one read by Stang. We have songs old and new by Rev. Bleepo Abernathy and Morgan Gutentag, plenty of old-school Media Barrage, the spirited Burning of "Bob" at 21X-Day with a spontaneous chorus of Nenslo's classic hymn, "Take Me Off to Space," a review of the Netflix show Peaky Blinders by Stang, a very weird Eddie Romanov rant read by Stang, and a tribute to online trolling and its master, the late Rev. Heathen, from practitioners Rev. Anna Maul and Dr. Brujaja. Lonesome Cowboy Dave and Rev. Stang discuss who would play Dave, and who would play "Bob," in a big Hollywood SubGenius movie, and the universal but useless misunderstandings about fretting and fairness. Lots of variety in this one. Also: the Slack Friday sale is ON from now until Xistlessnessmess!

This episode is heavy on the spoken word, and beautifully written! It's written largely by Rev. Dr. Uncle Onan Canobite, Rev. Eddie Romanov, Lonesome Cowboy Dave, Pappy Stang, and THE WEEK magazine's science sections. Some of this excellent writing is, however, read aloud by Rev. Stang, but luckily with lovely background music by, variously, Brian Henke and Cyberchump, which beef up both the scripted ranting and the improv Spouting. Also included are a new Rudy Schwartz Project instrumental from Hell, and ancient, seminal SubGenius classics by Inhibiting Factor, Rev. Bleepo Abernathy, and the Puzzling Evidence show. Also: details about the Ejaculope, finally released.

Sorry... this is one of those episodes where we get much more REAL than usual. In what they call "real life," over the last few weeks, we SubGeniuses got some fairly good news and some horribly bad news about our brothers and sisters, and ourselves, and this episode is partly about that. Extracting any Slack at all from what came with the bad news has been quite a challenge, but, THERE IS STILL SLACK! Not much, but we still have just enough of a fingernail-hold on the edge of the cliff that we haven't fallen into the abyss quite yet, and still have the energy to whine about it all rather vocally. Rev. Onan Canobite has been spouting the PURE kinds of rants lately, and that's helping; Lonesome Cowboy Dave and Rev. Stang are still pretty old, but trying not to let on, this time. There's also some potentially helpful advice for people whose dogs just ate all their marijuana cookies, then puked them all up, and then ate the puke. And puked again. We sincerely hope that this episode isn't too much More Than You Needed to Know, but that is a possibility.

This is a rerun from 1993 of Episode #414, when Stang got caught with his pants down without special prepared radio-ready edits, at the station KNON in Dallas... so, between music cuts, he read long stretches of the uncut, first draft version of the Hell chapter from the second SubGenius bible, Revelation X. Much of this revelatory material about the Afterlives and Beforelives was subsequently cut from the chapter for security reasons, so this is the first time that those early basic censored holy SubGenius tenets have been re-revealed in 25 years. This is an especially appropriate old show, because so many of us have been dying lately.

This is ANOTHER least typical Hour of Slack ever. It was with some trepidation that we let last week's show be an hour of just one old man, Pappy Stang, talking, but it was our most popular show ever! So this week, it's an hour solid of TWO old men talking: Rev. Ivan Stang and Lonesome Cowboy Dave! We figure it'll be TWICE as popular! Topics include #MeThree, Slack, the hellish modern world, aging, Fate, "Bob," Slack, and how They're taking away our freedoms in the name of freedom. Recorded at Tarzan's on 2018-10-13.

Friends, this is probably the least typical Hour of Slack ever, with no weird audio cut-ups, no Rudy Schwartz Project music, no Psycho Skeletons or Rainmakers, no Lonesome Cowboy Dave, no Stang to speak of, in fact almost no SubGenius radio babbling or ranting at all. This whole episode is one SubGenius talking: Stang's father, "Pappy." He was a colorful character, a raconteur. He worked as a labor lawyer, but he was also a skilled woodworker and a Captain in Naval Intelligence in the Navy Reserve... and a 32nd degree Mason. His job, and the Navy as well, took him all over, and in his spare time he had some adventures. He was probably around 83 years old when we recorded his true story of going out on the ice for five days with a family of Eskimos - not city Eskimos, but the kind that drive dogsleds, holler "Mush!" and slay seals and polar bears. It's a sometimes funny, sometimes blood-curdling account.

Collages by Lemur, Cool Hand Chris and Silas Janzen; music by The Rudy Schwartz Project and The Rainmakers with a welter of strange background musics used by the spouters and yakkers of SubGenius Podcast-Land.

These are the kinds of things I’ve THOUGHT of to do on X-Day, but from which I will refrain, because I’ll be too busy SAVING things. For that reason among others, I’m almost glad that X-Day didn’t happen in the Conspiracy 1998, because I wasn’t old and wise enough to fully appreciate that preservation is even more Slackful than vengeful destruction — as orgasmic as that may be. Anyway, that’s what I meant to say before I utterly spaced out. And now, on with the show, Hour of Slack #1,693."

A classic from March, 1991 (#275, on cassette) crossed with a 2003 WCSB show (#887) featuring some amazing off-the-cuff improvisations in song and word from a 2003 ESO Swamp Radio show (Prof. Chas Smith, Lonesome Cowboy Dave, Rev. Stang, Princess Wei). That ancient cassette also happened to have GREAT Desert Storm riffs by Puzzling Evidence, Dr. Howl, Gary G'broagfran and Papa Joe Mama. Like all that 1991 stuff, as long as Dan Quayle isn't mentioned, it's perfectly timely! The war never having ended, apparently. Reruns are not actually that easy to do, since they almost always have numerous embarrassing moments that must be replaced according to strict SubGenius rules of Hot-Swappable Prophecy.

Dr. Uncle Onan Canobite and by The Good Rev. Roger andf Dr. G. Gordon Gordon delivers one of his own. We also hear segments from 21X-Day with Dr. Philo Drummond, Dr. Hal, Rev. Angry Larry, Rev.

It's bracketed by songs and media barrages from our dependable friends The Rudy Schwartz Project, Cool Hand Chris, and Bob Walkenhorst (this time with his daughter Una!).

This is another basically Stangless show, although there is a 17-year-old Stang rant included that still works perfectly well today -- in fact, better, because what we used to envision as dark humor is now ordinary headline news. Much of this episode was recorded the second day of 21X-Day Drill, with Dr. Philo Drummond and Dr. Hal moving aside (mostly) to let younger Doktors Anna Maul, Rev. Fanboy and Rev. Feit C. Taj go at it using Tarzan's Mobile Radio Studio -- which gear is still in Ohio, whereas Stang is still having to produce these in Texas using equipment made from string, foil, snot and Scotch tape. Luckily there's also new Psycho Skeletons, Rudy Schwartz Project, and what we might call "Rainmakers Unplugged." Talk subjects include "Bob" Dobbs, the Church of the SubGenius, mutation, incontinent continents, Ripley's Believe It or Not, old food in the fridge, leaving the past behind, willful ignorance, and the fact that work is somebody else's idea.

This is the first hour of several to come with this all-new, all-old new crew cast. Rev. Anna Maul, for instance, is new, and 40 years of The Puzzling Evidence Show is DAMN OLD. But, by Gobbs, we still GOT IT! So do LeMur, The Rudy Schwartz Project, and The Rainmakers. Discussion topics include: the Iceman's johnson - Aztec Mummy's johnson - the wine press of war on Earth - thinking multidimensionally - Stang, like Moses, can't enter the Promised Land - The Luck Plane - Basil Wolverton - Living Head movies and experiments - perfused heads in Russian history. Great astronomy lecture by Dr. Hal. The need to be in The Inner Ring, which drives The Conspiracy, and much much more.

Not a normal Hour of Slack. Due to hard Fate, Rev. Stang never made it to 21X-Day. Lots of others did, though, and some of them filled in for Stang as recording engineer of babbling weirdos at a campground. Thanks to Rev. Fanboy for hosting a show on July 4 and 5 on his own equipment, and getting the recordings to the Texas office so quickly! July 4 featured Rev. Fanboy and Rev. FEIT C TAJ; July 5 featured Rev. Anna Maul, Fanboy and new guy Rev. Y. B. Dobbs. What we have here are excerpts from the first parts of those two two-hour shows. There's also a really, really sick brand new song from The Rudy Schwartz Project's new album POSTAL CODE OF HAM, some old bulldada exploitation fake news bulldada compiled by Cool Hand Chris, and the requisite two Bob Walkenhorst/Rainmakers songs that happened to be, or seemed to be, by magic, perfectly descriptive of Rev. Stang's life that particular day. Plus LeMur News, in Washington.

This show is being broadcast and recorded on Sunday July First, at WCSB in Cleveland, four days before Thursday, July 5, at 7 am, X-Day, when the world will end for the Normals and BEGIN for the SubGeniuses. Before Lonesome Cowboy Dave calls in we hear a brand new musical children's story by The Rudy Schwartz Project (with vocals by Stang!), some killer collages by Cool Hand Chris and Lemur, a brand new SubSong by The El Queso All-Stars, and two Walkenhorst songs.

Rerun of #951. Puzzling Evidence show from KPFA, 7-9-04 has Dr. Hal and Philo Drummond reporting on their 7X-Day adventures... from this skeleton we hung documentary recordings from 7X-Day. Some audio is from the StangCam and other is from Pater Nostril's soundboard. Clips from the 7X-Day shows at WREK Atlanta's "Bob's Slacktime Funhouse" with The Lymph Node Institute and Rev.

This has never happened before! 21 X-Day is almost here, yet we're still trying to use up the recordings from last year's 20X-Day Drill. Editing time is at a premium these days, it seems. Is there such a thing as "too much Slack"? Perhaps... meanwhile, we have these precious recordings of the last moments before LAST year's dismal failure of a complete planetary overhaul. In the last hours before 7 am July 5, "2017," Rev. Anna Maul used Tarzan's Radio Station at Wisteria Campground to loudly await the saucers with guests Rev. Peas and then Rev. Fanboy. (This being the FIRST hour; we used Time Control to play the SECOND hour PREVIOUSLY!) Interspersed are songs and media barrages you have never heard, by bands and barragists that you HAVE heard almost every show for the last year or two, if you listen much. I.e. The Rainmakers, The Rudy Schwartz Project, The Psycho Skeletons, Cool Hand Chris, and the famous Fernandinande LeMur. We also feature a new song by Rev. Casey Wing.

This one is a "normal" 2018-style Hour of Slack (HA HA) recorded "live" at Stang Ranch with Lonesome Cowboy Dave calling in. It also has your normal songs by The Rudy Schwartz Project and Bob Walkenhorst, your normal audio collages that Cool Hand Chris sent in, your normal LeMur cuts, and Stang reading a rant by somebody younger (in this case, Rev. Eddie Romanov). In the live part, Dr. G. Gordon Gordon reviews Dave's novel "Neighborworld" and Stang reviews John Shirley's excellent (and opposite!) books "The Other End" (an enlightened and inspirational answer to the Left Behind series) and "In Extremis" (an anthology of his sickest short stories). Also: The coming civil war and The Good Old Days; time machine problems; deadly vermin of Stang Ranch; and the story of "Bob" Dobbs vs. the chem toilets.

This episode of The Hour of Slack is a rerun, but a MYSTERIOUS one. Our friend St. David Bachner has gone to the trouble of digitizing almost all of the first 1,100 Hours of Slack, transfering them from cassette tape to MP3, and making them freely downloadable on his website. We have been inspecting the logs of the downloads and noticed a couple of very strange things. Firstly, a suprising number of old shows are being downloaded by people in Russia and China. Secondly, while most of the old shows have been downloaded by an average of from 200 to 400 people, ONE of them has been downloaded almost 20,000 times! Our new shows get an average of like 3,000 downloads a month or so, but this one old show has been downloaded 20,000 times! We looked it up to see what was so special about it. It's Hour of Slack #863 from the year 2002, titled "TIME MADNESS," and it has some great stuff on it, but... damn if I know why this show out of all our 1200-odd shows has been copied by 20,000 people. Maybe YOU, dear listener, can figure it out. Please let us know, if you do.

ROBERT ANTON WILSON RANTED HIS ASS OFF ABOUT "BOB" IN 1991 AND HERE'S THE RECORDING! I guess we sort of forgot that this ever happened, it was so great. I, Stang have been assigned to do a few catch-up interviews for The SubGenius Documentary, and I just got back from Portugal with tonight's riveting interview with Dr. G. Gordon Gordon, Assassin for Dobbs. Here at Stang Ranch in Texas, I also interviewed the astounding Rev. Anna Maul about her SubGenius career, AND we have recordings of her "Countdown to X-Day" show last July 5 from midnight to 7 am. The Rudy Schwartz Project makes a rare guest appearance, as does Bob Walkenhorst of The Rainmakers and the elusive The Psycho Skeletons.

After about 35 years of Hour of Slack, The Puzzling Evidence Show, and "Bob's" Slack Time Funhouse, and National Cynical Radio, and Radio Synesthesia, there are now NEW SubGenius shows by people who are only in their 30s and 40s and 50s instead of their 60s and 70s! -- of which TIME FOR THE SHOW is the oldest, clocking in at SEVENTEEN WEEKLY EPISODES so far! In fact, because I Stang am leaving for Portugal tomorrow to shoot Dr. G. Gordon Gordon for letting "Bob" get shot, I'm just gonna save myself some rushed editing, and play the first HALF of that 2-hour 17th podcast episode. So say hello to Argus, Fidd and Peas, those smart-alecky highjinx-committing scalawags, whose cusswords I'll have to cut for the broadcast version.

SHOW CRASH!The Puzzling Evidence Show physically crashed into The Hour of Slack! To make matters even more severe, it was the OLDEST version of The Puzzling Evidence Show, because it included Dr. Gary G'Broagfran! It happened because an airplane carrying Doug Wellman, Gary G'Broagfran, and Rev. Eohippus Lovechild (who'll be on next week) went out of control while flying over Flyover Country, and crashed on Stang Ranch in rural Texas, right next to Tarzan's Radio Station! What could we do but activate The Third Microphone and call Lonesome Cowboy Dave? So what you get here -- and it is truly unique -- is, first, Gary ALL BY HIMSELF because Wellman and Stang abandoned him to the mix board (this is actually the funniest part of the show), and then the first and only known interaction between THE Puzzling Evidence and THE Lonesome Cowboy Dave... PLUS GARY!! The Dr. Hal part of The Puzzling Evidence Show, and the Philo Drummond part, have jammed with Dave plenty of times before, but wait'll you hear the ping-ponging bounce-back in the sandbox of the Dave AND the Puzz! There's also some great old new "media barrage" by Cool Hand Chris (using lots of ancient SubG stuff) and a tune from The Rudy Schwartz Project's elder album, "Salmon Dave." And: LeMur!

Hour of Slack #1670 - "Bob," God, Money and Drugs

Rerun of #843 (2002)

59:28

Rerun of #843 (2002). We had to do our taxes, which are more complicated for this church than for most, so we're again presenting an especially good rerun -- at least, the label on the master had a scrawl on it in Stangwriting saying "Good one!" We know from the log however (seen at subgenius.com) that it has a fine Pater Nostril collage from devivals and other things, music by Saint N and Hellena Handbasket, lots of clips from good old Media Barrage Tape #5 (1982), LeMur, Nu-Monet, and Artemia Salina collages, much best live ESO Swamp Radio with Dave, Chas, StangDoe and callers, Puzzling Evidence, a Glassmadness classic "Bob" hymn, and even RastaBillyBob and "Zeeza."

This episode is partly a fundraiser show. Some SubGeniuses are currently Slackless. We can help because in some dim way, we actually are a kind of a, well, er, "church." There's some wonderful musical and bulldada weirdness at the beginning by our old buds Fernandinande Le Mur and The Rudy Schwartz Project, and then some Media Barrage by Cool Hand Chris. There's a killer segment of Podcrust from last 20X-Day Drill, recorded in the wee hours of July 5 by host Rev. Anna Maul, with guests Rev. Benard and Rev. Redacted. Then we call Lonesome Cowboy Dave in Ashtabula, Ohio, from the MegaFisTemple Lodge in Glen Rose, Texas, and wildness ensues. There's even a discussion about wildness in general.

It's a good time for reruns, and this is one of our favorites, from the days when Hour of Slack merged with Chas Smith's ESO Swamp Radio on WCSB. Lonesome Cowboy Dave is razzed and tortured by Stang (and defended by Wei) while Chas plays his ass off on several synthesizers. (Two songs spontaneously generate themselves.) This episode is particularly skewed towards paleontology and paleoanthropology, because Stang and Wei had visited the Cleveland Natural History Museum earlier in the day. The museum actually did display the jawbone of a Yeti, incidentally, and the Dobsonfly is a real insect.

One excellent section of this episode is the beautifully written "SubGenius Science: Unified Theory of Slack" by Joshua Scott Hotchkin, which Stang reads even though he disagrees with almost every sentence. There's a wonderful new instrumental by The Bishop called "Onward Slackful Soldiers," and NEW PR Gnus! The rest is a Lonesome Cowboy Dave call-in that dashes all over the harsh terrain, ruining the pads on its paws, later making it painful to get to the Soiling Area where the show can urinate. Yes, it's a fairly weird episode.

Thanks to Rev. Argus Faux for recording, somehow, the 8 hours of "radio" that happened at 20X-Day starting just before midnight, July 4, "2017," and ending about the time the world was supposed to end. It's all on an MP3 file that is EIGHT HOURS LONG, called "Suboxene Bloodstream Podcrust 3_01." The LAST four hours of it seems to be playbacks of weird edited canned SubGenius audio edits, but the first four hours feature that smooth talker Rev. Anna Maul and a rotating roster of "co-hosts" such as Rev. peas, Dr. Shoggoth and especially Rev. Fanboy (her most coherent co-host by far). The section we have started working with here is the first half of Hour Two. We have removed a few stretches of truly inside jokes, but otherwise it's unmolested. This episode also includes music by The Rudy Schwartz Project, Rev. Jimmy Ryan, Lothar and the Hand People, and The Rainmakers, and an intro barrage by Rev. Cool Hand Chris. Stang also explains his little sister's new vocabulary words for the various feathers on a dog, and reads some interesting sections from a National Geographic article about alcohol and human evolution, with background music by Shpongle.

THIS EPISODE IS TOTALLY INEBRIATED! We weren't, NECESSARILY, when we assembled this show in August of the so-called year "2003," but the episode itself is WAY high. The mad audio mutator, Mr. Fernandinande LeMur, was on a real tear then, as were we of the ESO Swamp Radio Show on WCSB in Cleveland. That was Prof. Chas Smith's show, which became the aptly named Brain Rot Radio Theater during the sections with Lonesome Cowboy Dave, Rev. Stang. and Princess Wei. Other arteests represented include DJ Pooh and Mistah Grimm, Lump5, Phineas Narco, Puzzling Evidence Show with Philo Drummond and Dr. Hal, Elvis Hitler, NOFX, Heart Ignition, CD Truth, The Streets, and "jarto." All in all this is one of our nuttier shows. One might be hard pressed to see how this material intersects with a sober subject like "Bob" Dobbs and the Church of the SubGenius.

Susie the Floozie's "Bob's" Slack Time Funhouse, originally broadcast on WREK-Atalanta in 1994. Susie is the greatest audio collage editor of all time, and this is one of her best mixes. It's got EVERYTHING! In it's ORIGINAL FORM, yet! (You'll see what we mean, take our word for it!) There must be hundreds of separate tracks and cuts, expertly woven together by Susie, and interspersed with her amazingly delivered rants and lots of very rare, very weird music.

It was assembled around 2002 like a Frankenstein's monster from our favorite clips, extracted with great care out of the vast hoard of universally favorite SubGenius albums and tapes made since 1980.

There are SubGenius radio shows besides The Hour of Slack. The Puzzling Evidence Show and "Bob's" Slack Time Funhouse have been on air for as long or longer, and there have been other spinoffs that went extinct. But now there is a new, powerful podcast, one that erupted like a pustule out of the Thorazine Urine Podcrust comedy nontroup, called Time For The Show! The latest incarnations have been better recorded and had less cussing than earlier ones, and #102 (Jan. 8, "2018")had Stang as a guest, so for obvious reasons Stang decided to just run that insane thing pretty much as is. You can hear Time for the Show at timeforthewebsite.com OR subgeniuses.com OR hypercubelaboratory.com. Or look at the Hour of Slack Radio section of SubGenius.com. Anyway the purveyors of Time for the Show so far have been Rev. Fidd Chewley, Dr. Argus Faux, and the ever insecure Rev. Peas, all of them heard on recent Hours of Slack on recordings from X-Day Drills.

Down in the Medicine Shithole! Thanks to the President, we are now free to play, on public airwaves available to children, songs like "Shithole Town" by The Rainmakers! (Actually, we censored the broadcast version; this version is 18 minutes longer than an hour, too!) Most of the show is a good ol' live chat with Lonesome Cowboy Dave, recorded at Tarzan's at Stang Ranch, but (as always) on Sunday night just like a real show. Remastered versions of four songs by The Rudy Schwartz Poject and one by Lothar and the Hand People (!) form the opening twenty minutes but after that it's all about the smell of the fish people, the interchangeability of Trump and shit, shit holes, dingleberries, Trumphole towns, Jimmy Swaggart, Stormy Waters, British pee party tapes, what it's like down in The Medicine Fish Hole, yankin' out fresh expressions, The Master Game, Masonic Illuminati, the judging categories of Pyroflatulation contests.

This Hour of Slack  is by necessity and choice a rerun of #411 from Sept. 1993, which was requested by a long-time listener, and when we checked it out we could hear why. It's REALLY unusual and features some excellent rants by the then-high-schooler named Reverend Gobi, who had a SubGenius show at her high school radio station. They're a real blast of fresh air from the ancient past.

Simple! The first half is the last last half hour of the last Radio Synaesthesia show of 2017 on WCSB, with Stang and Doe joining by phone with a big gang of WCSB Subs at the station to ring in whatever new year this actually is: host Dr. Sinister and numerous other comedians, DJs, ex-DJs, and ex-cons. The only non-Stang SubGenius in the Glen Rose area, Dr. Sinsomniac, does a great call-in too. The second half is part of a major new (well, maybe old, but mostly new to us) "media barrage" style collage by Cool Hand Chris aka Rev. Christian Blatter, a highlight of which is the Star Wars saga done rap-style.

Sappy, nostalgia-provoking reruns on TV are what Christmas is all about, right? Plus, it gives us a break. This is the hoary old annual traditional Xmas Re-Rerun of #867 (and 921 and 1026, 1077, 1129, 1236, 1338, 1497, 1549, 1602, etc.), which was itself a condensation of some ancient year's 3-show "Best of Xmas Sickness" compilation, which were themselves the concentrated best-of from 15 years' worth of previous Xmas SubGenius and other Xmas weirdo collections, going back to the show's beginning in 1985 at KNON, Dallas. Includes over 66 separate tracks/songs/bits! And no, not one bit has been changed in all these years. Now that's Slack!

This is Hour of Slack number 450, rerun from July of t"1994" when the show was only nine years old and still being produced in Dallas. We were between radio stations then, so we relied more on clips from other SubGeniusly radio shows like Puzzling Evidence in San Francisco and ESO Swamp Radio Brain Rot Theater in Cleveland on WCSB, and also on cassette tapes that were mailed in. It was the days before the Internet, and people spent more time on things like making tapes and mailing them around. People also read and wrote books in those days, and this episode reflects all that. We have PuzEv, Drs. 4 "Bob" pretending to invent the Church, Lonesome Cowboy Dave's rant-sterpiece, "Corruptigating Worms"; Stang reads from Donna Kossey's book KOOKS regarding Nation of Islam, and we hear strange music from Slouch, The Merkins, Lonesome Cowboy Dave and Captain Beefheart.

A pretty crazy episode. Clearly confusing directions! Stang reads from our next publishing event, the novel EYELASH by Nikolai Kingsley. The Rainmakers, classics x 3. The history of Xists inventing Yetis, Yetis inventing humans, Why hide the edge of the Flat Earth? Where SubGeniuses come from. The Conspiracy destroyed Earth, switched with Mars - now we'll finish the job from a distance, seen in VR. "I don't care if I'm in the Matrix." Dave on THEY LIVE. Sell the Sonic BM buzz to Devo! People related by name. Repenting on the deathbed. That's how they destroyed Earth the first time! Emergentiles gone evil. THE CHURCH OF THE SENIOR SUBGENIUS.  Internet-only bonus: Stang and his two grandsons hunt "Bob" in the Lost Cave.

The incredible rabble-rousing live devival rant "WHAT IF...?" by Papa Joe Mama highlights this episode and possibly this century. Believer-bashing rock songs by The Rainmakers and The Rudy Schwartz Project do too. We hear the opening installment of the third episode of Time for the Show, a scrum-influenced prodcast from, in this case, Faux/Chewley/Peas. The 1984 version of Mark Mothersbaugh weighs in on Dobbs Sex and SubGenius philosophy. Then there's the rest of the show, recorded at Stang Ranch with Lonesome Cowboy Dave calling in, but since we just got our copy of Horizon Zero Dawn today, we're going to keep this blurb short. There's some talk about about the Orgozmonic Chamber of "Bob" and Grampires, and Stang is divisive. There is an unusually long and rambling post-Show Internet-only conversation that stretches the Internet version out to 90 minutes.

First live show from Stang Ranch! Well, they're prerecorded, but we do then at 9 pm Sundays just like at the station in Cleveland, and we strive to PRETEND it's live so that we don't have to do much editing. The discussions veers all over SubGenius Creation but the theme to which we keep returning is the timely one of sexual harassment by old rich fat men. A couple of Church secrets are even revealed! Two songs by The Rainmakers from the 1996 album SKIN are remarkably pertinent this particular month: "Different Rub" and "Good Sons and Daughters. The first 10 minutes however is solid Rudy Schwartz Project from a remastered version of their classic album DON'T GET CHARRED, GET PUFFY.

Half of show is from Hour of Slack #40 from 1986 with G. Gordon Gordon, Ivan Stang, and background music by DK Jones, Mark Mothersbaugh, and Onan Canobite. Interspersed with that hardy and informative classic fossil are Prairie Squid related songs by Champion Jack Codini, songs and rants from Stang/Wei/ESO Radio and devival collaborations, a litle KPFA squiditidy, plus everything on Napster with the word "squid" in the title.

We managed to stay on Show schedule through our move from Ohio to Texas, but the strenuous unpacking process was what finally got the best of us and put us behind by a week. We're catching up with reruns, this one being a great example of the Hours of Slack from the early 2000s that relied on plenty of ESO Swamp Radio (WCSB Cleveland by host Chas Smith, with Ivan Stang and Lonesome Cowboy Dave) and The Puzzling Evidence Show on KPFA Berkeley by host Puzzling Evidence and cohosts Dr. Hal and Dr. Philo Drummond. We had a lot more fresh collages coming in via Usenet in those days too, in this case by Rev. nu-monet and Jupiter Research. This episode features some clips from the Stang sermon with ESO live back-up at Winterstar Symposium, and the ESO song "Wilderness of "Bob"" performed live there. Winterstar was a smaller, indoor version of Starwood held by A.C.E. of Cleveland and it elicited great gut blowout. It ended because the excellent rural Ohio everything-goes resort folded. Today there is an annual Winterstar Ball held at The Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland until another anything-goes winter indoor resort can be found in Northern Ohio. If it happens we'll be there!

This one's a Radio Synaesthesia show without Dr. Sinister, with Stang at the controls, Princess Wei and Dr. Hal (with yet another new song!) in the studio, and the Lonesome Cowboy on the phone, recorded July 9 "2017." Many Church secrets are revealed including the history of SubGenius transgender weddings. Pretty much everything important is discussed, followed by discussions of everything else. Hopefully we will have Tarzan's Radio Station fully cranked up next week.

Dr. Sinister Post-X-Day Radio Synaesthesia Show with Dr. Hal, StangDoe, Dave

Live at WCSB 2017-7-9

We are at Stang Ranch and Tarzan's Radio Station is set up, but we're still unpacking everything ELSE and have to change our address on EVERYTHING. The new address for SubGenius Foundation is Box 807 Glen Rose Texas 76043.We saved a Radio Synaesthesia show that hasn't been on Hour of Slack for this week, recorded at WCSB on July 9 of the so-called 2017, right after X-Day Drill #20. Dr. Sinister kept Princess Wei, Rev. Stang, and Dr. Hal, in the station for an extra two hours, and Lonesome Cowboy Dave called in. This is the first hour.

Stang credits Mayan Ruins, plugs Starwood, describes how it's mated with X-Day. Church of All Worlds and goat-unicorns. Why a goat? origin and result: Rev. Magdalen can't have SubGenius stuff in New York. New York state judges; Texas lawyers can sleep in court. Lonesome Cowboy Dave calls in. Sold 6 copies of Neighborworld. Dave's colon and convergent evolution. Dave tells tale of Sinister as stand-up comic. X-Day Drill and the awful new revelations. Hal's new song "TAKE UP THE SLACK"! New X-Day revelations. The movie people filmed Onan's new song and a whole bunch of other stuff - much filmed already. Obstructionists in the Church. Brought huge dog to X-Day Drill. Dammett and the cat who made him her little bitch. The mysteries of Wisteria - monsters, insects, spiders.  The disgusting pond scum. Wisteria as a strip mine that was rehabilitated. The terrible derecho weather disaster of 4 X-Days ago -- no power in Ohio EXCEPT Wisteria. Horrible weather in Arizona. Fossil fish of Ohio. Monsters of Ohio. New caller "Nightwing" confused re: turtles. Wei's ageless newt. Stang's video "FIG - The Newt That Time Forgot" - microorganism movie "Micro Monsters" on revstang YouTube channel. Philo wants ads for Roku. The SubGenius video archives -- Stang's new chore. Hoping to film more SubG old-timers. Robert Crumb and the Church. SubG celebs. David Byrne and the Puzzling Evidence scene in True Stories. Goat Yoga on Stang Ranch. Dave was a refugee from Middle East. Goat meat restaurants. Goat-killin'and skinnin'. World might end tomorrow but probably go to Starwood instead. Dave on Trotsky and Lenin. Why "Bob" Dobbs stopped showing up at Devivals. When Dr. Sinister saw "Bob" get hit by a bus. "Bob's" both the mouth and anus of the Universe! Dr. Sinister breaks and does credits.

We start with a rant and the song "Reckoning Day" by THE RAINMAKERS recorded June 2nd 2017 at Knuckleheads Garage. We made it to Stang Ranch Texas, intact with ALL OUR STUFF, the entire Church of the SubGenius main media archive and Slack Altar elements, after a truly strenuous and taxing house move. We're still unpacking, but basically the huge move is over and we can emit this new-like Hour of Slack #1645, maybe a little late. It was recorded September 17, "2017," on Dr. Sinister's show on WCSB Cleveland, Radio Synaesthesia, which follows Hour of Slack there on Sunday nights. We stuck around the station for two hours, and Lonesome Cowboy Dave called in.

RED ALERT! The Kickstarter effort for the documentary about the Church ends in five days and it's all or nothing! It's raised $130,000 but needs one last mighty push to reach the goal! Even if you're stone cold broke yourself, TELL EVERYONE!

Last live show at WCSB until next summer; we're MOVING! This episode attacks the ins and outs of packing and prepping massive SubGenius media archives for transportation across 1000 miles of Pink territory in a disguised "moving van." We also discuss the documentary movie in progress, SLACKING TOWARDS BETHLEHEM, and urge all listeners to check out the Kickstarter page and trailer. Also: The Rainmakers cover Devo, The Swinging Love Corpses, and more of them kind pils.

It's all about dogs. There's some great Swinging Love Corpses, The Rainmakers, and The Psycho Skeletons in this, and a sermon by Rev. deFalk, but mostly it's a tribute to our late, great SubGenius hound dog, Dammett, who boarded the Saucers at age 12 on Sept. 29, or St. Dammett / Bite the Mailman Day. (Thanks to Rev. Guimo for that idea.) We also ALMOST reveal MASSIVE Church secrets, and discuss the SubGenius Yard Sale which had ended just before this show started, but the best parts are about having and losing a great dog pal... our little boy, old as he was. The highlight is a recording of Dammett howl-dueling with a pack of coyotes in the dead of night.

OH, and the BIG MYSTERY SECRET we were hinting at can now be told: bit.ly/SlackOn

This show is from two weeks ago. We didn’t do a live show this week because, well, our old hound dog and co-host Dammett suddenly decided to board the saucers early and we had to say goodbye to him. He is with Pappy now and we are looking for a Treeing Walker Coonhound puppy.
