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

This show from November, 2005 is interstrewn with killer klips by Mister Fernandinande LeMur and Rev. Norel Pref, but most of it (labeled in the log at as "SubNegPuz") is edited from the 5 hour Thanksgiving Business Banquet we enjoyed at the KPFA studios in Berkeley (, thanks to Don Joyce's Over the Edge and Doug Wellman's Puzzling Evidence. They are co-hosting and co-mixing. Guests in this segment include Pope Michael Peppe, Dr. Philo Drummond, Princess Wei, Rev. Ivan Stang, many callers.

Special episode, live at the WCSB studio in Cleveland with the great satirist, publisher and enemy of the Conspiracy Paul Krassner yakking with regular hosts Rev. Ivan Stang, Lonesome Cowboy Dave and Princess Wei "R." Doe. It's a long, rambling funny discussion of "What REALLY Happened to The Left?" -- plus the unusual chain-gang of idiots. We have a song, "Bob" Pokes Me In The Eye, by someone who sounds like Martin Sheen, the song "On and Off the Road with "Bob" by Rev. Bleepo Abernathy, and a rant by, well, let's just call him Joe. LeMur contributes many collages as does Rev. Norel Pref.

To celebrate our fifteenth-hundredth week on the air, we pulled a rerun at random. This one is an unusually light-hearted and light-headed live show from October, 2005. Your host Rev. Stang was very tired and utters countless accidental malapropisms. Luckily there is much Killer Kollage from both LeMur and Rev. Norel Pref. Princess Wei "R." Doe and Lonesome Cowboy Dave kept Stang from just reading alt.slack out-takes or falling asleep. Stephen McQuillen's Katrina collage is ASTOUNDING. (Thanks to Phineas Narco for posting that to a.b.s.) Also: the great song "Dread Dobbs" by Lost Souls, Inc. NEXT WEEK: Paul Krassner live in the WCSB Hour of Slack studio!

This is a rerun of #679, mixed on tape on April 16, 1999, right after Stang's first marriage broke up and the Hour of Slack mixing studio was moved into a shabby Dallas bachelor apartment. (It was RE-reran as #1014 in 2005.) It's pretty good! Contents of this fast-paced episode include: Ancient Puzzling Evidence, media barrages, Onan Canobite music, SubG preaching by Pope Meyer and David Lynch, Byron Werner "Doktor" collages, Mark Mothersbaugh SubMusic, Dokstok III music, Stang's rants at Winterstar 99, rare ARISE! narration out-takes by Stang instead of Dr. Hal; some great ranting and jams by Stang with Einstein's Secret Orchestra from a rehearsal tape; a song by an Italian SubGenius band; Sister Krys ranting on WFMU; The Band That Dare Not Speak Its Name; ESO collages by Chas Smith; Rev. Susie the Floozie collages; King of Slack Bill T. Miller music; ESO radio with LC Dave and Stang; and a Rev. Friday Jones rant.

We're on our annual Krampusmas SubGenius Winter Trip, so until we return it's reruns all the way down. In fact it's five consecutive shows from October-November 2005. This particular disgusting rerun is tainted by stretches of Dr. Philo Drummond and Pope Sternodox in a frank discussion about Face Fucking Bats from an even more ancient Hour of Slack. It's also especially Norelian and Preffish. Thanks to Rev. Jacques Petee for the movie clips.

What are the holidays without reruns? This is the hoary old annual traditional Xmas Re-Rerun of #867 (and 921 and 1026, 1077, 1129, 1236, 1338, 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. Includes over 66 separate tracks/songs/bits! And no, not one bit has been changed in all these years. We are ON XISTLESSNESSMESS VACATION from Hour of Slack!

Starwood Festival lets Rev. Ivan Stang motormouth for an hour straight every year, and this time we didn't chop up the recording. Aside from the LeMur titles it's all Stang's voice, so consider yourself forewarned. First, for the newbs, "SubGenius 101" is delivered (and most can just fast-forward through that). Then Stang reads Rev. Baby Bear's written rant, "PAY ATTENTION," before rattling on off the top of his head about The Conspiracy, stupid racist rednecks, things that were invented by Africans (such as walking upright and tool using), and climate change. Staunch conservatives may want to skip past this section also. The Sacred Scribe then delivers a short tribute to Starwood and its late and truly great co-founder Jeff Rosenbaum (St. Stymie deBergerac to Subs). Stang brags to the pagans about how he tricked the SubGeniuses into getting off their butts and entering the Wisteria woods at X-Day, then bellows out yet another rant originally written by Rev. Baby Bear. The sermon ends in the very nick of time.

Aside from the LeMur featurettes, this is all one big uncut recording of the live Ask Dr. Hal Show held at Wisteria's Caffeina's Café during 17X-Day (later on July 5, the day the world was supposed to end, #$#@%@Q&&^!!). The mighty uberbrain of Dr. Hal provided answers to many questions burning in the hearts of the attendees, including: How much Ku could a Ku Klux Kan? Does Godzilla poop in the woods? Is that 'Frop in that Pipe? What do SubGeniuses find attractive in other SubGenii? Is there a Dorian Gray "Bob" picture? Where did Time go? Why are Terror Birds gone? Could this be "IT?" Can one recycle a placenta? Can digital videos be called "films"? Dr. Hal also recites (from memory!) two poems, including "Lament" by Dylan Thomas.

These aren't all foul and filthy like the previous XXX release; some of these aren't suitable for broadcast radio simply because they are TRUE. Or, just simply too weird. Rev. Max Darqcpaw, Pisces, Rev. Wilhelm Stahlhelm, and Rev. Spike (all from 17X-Day), Sin music by Reagan's Polyp, a pee break narrated by Rev. Angry Larry (on guitar), clips previously censored from Stang's 2013 Starwood sermon, involving Face Fucking Bats; songs by 6 Fisted Tales and Munky Hyv, and finally Rev. "Suds" delivers a pretty darned serious rant.

A regular ol' show recorded Nov. 30 at the WCSB station. The first half is a mixed bag of nuts, with new LeMur collages plus a new ear-rattling segment from Rev. Du8, "Steaming Sack of Slack;" fine rants by Papa Joe Mama and G. Gordon Gordon; a mixdown of the movie Jesus Camp, by cuttlefish; carny barker Nate Eagle, and music by The Large (who SINGS!), ESO and Andrew the Impaled. Then it's Lonesome Cowboy Dave and StangDoe all the way down, and down, and down. (Stangor does not appear this time.) The subject matter is all over the place. Stang gets pissed off at the 98 percenters and the prophecy regarding bugs as food is explored, as is the mysterious New Yet Older PHOTO Dobbshead. Strange letters from The Large are read. Background music is new from The Psycho Skeletons and The Large.
