Hour of Slack #1599 - Soundtrack of Scrum

You can watch this episode on YouTube! ( https://youtu.be/1Kcm7iWB81U ) Sort of. After we finished a video of 19X-Day's Thursday night stage performances, or whatever those things are, we took the soundtrack and edited it down even more, to a mere 23 minutes, excluding parts that have already been heard on Hour of Slack. Basically it is a Thorazine Urine extravaganza with guests such as, well, almost everybody who was at X-Day that night. Then (from Stang Ranch) we called Lonesome Cowboy Dave and chatted for another 45 minutes. Internet listeners may have noticed that we're now putting infomercials at the ends of the Internet versions of these shows. We do this because we can, and all month it's Slack Friday.

Hour of Slack #1598 - Hour of Thorazine Urine

We were tempted to title this "Best Show Ever" because it's such a refreshing change from the old guys! Thorazine Urine Podcrust is a loose (and we do mean loose) band of blabbermouths who leapfrogged off Hour of Slack, Puzzling Evidence and "Bob's" Slack Time Funhouse, did a backflip, and set their hair on fire before landing on a monocycle and peddling around in circles, juggling plates. On Friday afternoon at 19X-Day, Rev. Anna Maul, Rev. Argus Faux, and Rev. Fidd Chewley chewed up the scenery as guest hosts at Tarzan's Radio Station. (With a bigger crowd of zanies and a bunch of musical instruments, they also did some hours on the main stage.) After the podcrust, Stang continues reading from The Bobliographon (Conspiracy chapter). We also hear a new song, "Empire," from Rev. Andrew Genus, and two poems: Dr. Hal reciting "The Vulture" and a creepy original by Rev. Dr. Lee Cypher.

Hour of Slack #1597 - SubGeniUS Vs. THEM

With Dammett the hound dog snoring at his side, Rev. Stang preaches from a prophetic chunk of The Bobliographon that was written in 1980 but sounds even more frighteningly accurate today. Before that, however, there are classic songs from The Swingin' Love Corpses and The Rudy Schwartz Project and new instrumentals from Dr. Shoggoth, Rev. Jimmy Ryan, and the Psycho Skeletons. We also hear he second half hour of a 19X-Day live show at Wisteria featuring Dr. Hal, Rev. Baby Bear and Rev. Argus Faux as they discuss, among other things, the bizaarre items brought for the Bulldada Auction. Note: Many listeners will be glad to know that the asshole isn't mentioned in this episode.

Hour of Slack #1596 - We're Gonna Need a Bigger Big Lie

After being psychologically knocked for a loop, we are back with ten times as many screaming heads as they tried to cut off! We had a lot of fun assembling this episode, which is actually scripted, in a funny way; it helped us to get over THE HORROR and to move on with THE BATTLE in order to win THE JOKE. For the first half hour we copped (and recut) a lot of uncredited collage work from The Puzzling Evidence Show of the previous week (election week), then called up The Lonesome Cowboy and climbed back into the saddle for another bout in the ring. (Is it possible that a boxing ring is the wrong place for a horse race? WHO CARES? Why not both?) We also copped some good lines from those tricky Scrubgenius forum posters. The Swinging Love Corpses close out this heartfelt show with their prescient song, "We Are Going to Save the Universe."

Hour of Slack #1595 - Generic SubGenius Pledge Drive Show

This is Rev. Stang on November 10, “2016,” and I feel like I’ve been being groped by an evil fat man for 2 days straight. I’ll get over the trauma easier than most people but we don’t feel real FUNNY quite yet. Don’t worry, the sick jokes are already starting to flow again. This happened to be pledge drive week at WCSB in Cleveland, and yet the studio phone was disabled, so for now it’s time for the GENERIC PLEDGE DRIVE CD. It’s actually a pretty good collage of old rants, with a cast of dozens, spanning 35 years of pledge drives, but whenever it says to call the station, instead, go to subgenius.com and push the DONATE button. Or, do the RIGHT thing and buy the $35 Membership kit, become a proper legal SubGenius minister finally, and get into the secret GOOD part of the Internet. Both links are right at the top of subgenus.com and you even get to see our classic TV commercial FOR FREE!

Hour of Slack #1594 - Live from Stang Ranch on Dokstok Mountain

It sounds just like a regular WCSB Hour of Slack, but it's not one! The live part where Lonesome Cowboy Dave calls in was the first episode recorded in our newly upgraded Tarzan's Radio Station, now located in the living room at Stang Ranch, in extremely rural Stang County, Texas. The setting is different, being festooned with mounted large dead mammal heads instead of punk band bumper stickers, but we still recorded it on Sunday at 9 p.m. EST just like always (8 p.m. in Texas), and we allowed no re-takes, thus making it like a real radio broadcast -- which it will be soon our beloved stations. The first half has the classic song "High on Dokstok Mountain" by The Swingin' Love Corpses and other music by Rev. Jimmy Ryan, Psycho Skeletons and Rev. Experimental, Please, but most is from 19X-Day with some great live radio spouting by Dr. Hal, Rev. Baby Bear, and Rev. Argus Faux (Stang being otherwise occupied, as you'll hear) and some Thorazine Urine Podcrust music-ranting-commercials by a cast of thousands but with Revs. Anna Maul, Faux and Shoggoth being the loudest.

Hour of Slack #1593 - God Vs.

Rerun of #866, from December 2002. Arteests include John Lennon, a lotta Lemur, Bro. Cleve Dunkan doing The SubGenius Alphabet, ESO Radio with Chaz Smith, Lonesome Cowboy Dave and Stang, Zoogz Rift, Drexel, DK Jones, Half Man Half Biscuit, Puzzling Evidence, The Black Lodge Singers, Dr. Philo Drummond, Rev. Jimmy Swaggart, Dr. Howll, Byron Werner collage x 10, Israel Regardie and Christopher Hyatt. We couldn't assemble a new SubGenius show this week because we only have one week in which to cast four fossil dinosaur tracks on Stang Ranch and scientifically map them out on a big grid before rains come and put them under water again for the next seven months. It's a long story. We're documenting the process. But this is a really good rerun and it's a better copy than could ever be downloaded before.

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 subgenius.com

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.
