This episode takes you into the deranged and possibly deranging world of actual SubGenius life, up close and personal -- just like actually being at an X-Day Drill, only indoors and without the suffering! It is entirely composed of location recordings from July 5, 17X-Day at Wisteria, interspersing documentary audio from the tragic 7 a.m. gathering with a live stage Hour of Slack with Dr. Hal, Phat ManDee, Stang and others. (This required extensive editing - especially the "clean" version for broadcast stations!) The real co-star -- or perhaps super-villain -- of the morning gathering to meet the Saucers was Dr. Dark, the Church's diabolical Pun-isher General. Rev. Susie the Floozy also makes her usual unforgettable appearance. Also featured: a 6-Fisted Tails of Connie jam, and not only the destruction of a huge organ by the fearsome band Armneji Front, but also an explanation (!) of them by Rev. Susie the Floozy.

Because this is a WCSB-specific pledge drive show, it won't be sent to the other stations -- it's Internet-only. The show starts with 15 minutes of fabulous but less-heard Hendrix. Stang intros the pledge drive Clockwork Orange-style, and there's a surprisingly serious and informative discussion of that novel later, when Oddy-Knocky Cowboy Dave calls in. Interspersed are glowing promises of the wonders of pledging and all the keen glowing candy-like premiums (including 2 passes to Starwood Festival). The promise of a SubGenius Gold Card for the $50 pledge "draws donations like flies!" Donators are gossiped about and praised. The WCSB history of Houir of Slack is told; much shameful SubG trivia is revealed.

This one won't be sent to the broadcast stations. After Hour of Slack #1490 A, we hung around the WCSB studio for another hour of Dr. Sinister's show Radio Synaesthesia, which allows other callers besides Lonesome Cowboy Dave. The discussion veers all over everything and leaves it all smelling funny. The subjects given the most attention are the movie ANT FARM DICK HOLE and the WCSB Halloween Masquerade Ball, which had taken place the night before. Stang provides some details about the SubGenius connections with both GWAR and Pee Wee Herman. Photos from the WCSB Halloween Masquerade Ball (to which we refer in detail in this show) are at:

and if you backtrack from there you can see this year's NEO Witches Ball and Slackermansion trick-or-treaters.

We had a special guest in town, Rev. Baby Bear, and a nice stash of very good music that was screaming to be heard screaming. We played the music first (with some great new collagies by Mr. F. LeMur) and then let our hair down on the air, with some old monster movie music heard faintly in the background. There's some last-minute election humor plus some propaganda by Rev. Ivan "Comrade" Stang. A SubGenius birth and a SubGenius death, both "IRL," are announced; Lonesome Cowboy Dave calls in, and from that point it's secret monkey factories all the way down. Musical bands include: The Amino Acids, Slackmaster Sarcastro, Pilgrim Speakeasy, Marc Friedman and Munky Hyv. See you on the Saucers, Pastor Phister Gaghol.

All recorded on location at Wisteria during 17X-Day Drill, and yet it sounds almost like an old murder mystery radio play. If only it were simply some kind of elaborate prank! Just before the sacred nude Bobtism ceremony (heard in all its naked glory), evidence of an apparent murder was discovered at the Bobtismal Pond. But where was the body? After the mangled pet, the couple attacked in their car, the weird footprints, the mole stampede, and other unexplained but increasingly sinister events at 17X-Day Drill, it had become plain that some person or some THING was on the loose and stealing not only Slack but possibly lives. We still have seen no sign of "Rev. Bastard," incidentally!

Nerd-Out at the Bottom of the Nerd Barrel! After Hour of Slack #1488, we stuck around with special guest Rev. Baby Bear and Special Caller Dave for another hour of live radio, kindly lent us by Special Host Dr. Sinister from his Radio Synaesthesia show. It's 52 minutes of pure chatter that we're distributing by Internet only. It is truly a Nerd-Out; comic books and movies are discussed in detail along with many SubGenius Church Secrets and WCSB inside-jokes. Even the Useless Secret Super-Powers of several SubGenii are revealed. WARNING: This show may be somewhat more linear and less confusing than the "average" Hour of Slack. However it is every bit as nerdly.

You could call this a two-hour Hour of Slack. Largely because we had a special guest for Hour of Slack (Rev. Baby Bear, fresh from 14 hours of Ask Dr. Hal and Puzzling Evidence shows), and because Dr. Sinister wandered in early and got on Mic 4, we ended up doing an extra hour of spouting and splavering, eating up the first hour of Radio Synaesthesia after a whole hour of Hour of Slack. I guess we will call this a Dual Show. The first half hour is music and a SubGenius wedding/divorce from 17 X-Day as well as two more DEVO covers from NNBBM Vol. 12. Musicians include The Mutant Mountain Boys, Rev. angry Larry, Andrew the Impaled, Tommy Amoeba, Evolution Control Committee and Dr. Hal. Then the talking on WCSB begins, and bleeds over into the following show, Radio Synaesthesia, which we'll call 1488b or Part Two. Sorry, it's really hard not to make terrible Ebola jokes, references and conspiracy theories in this situation, and we hope God doesn't give us the Ebolas for making sport.

Once again we offer a cross section of best songs and rants from the 17X-Day Drill stage, mixed with some Devo covers from the latest NNBBM compilation: Dr. Hal, Andrew the Impales, Mutant Mountain Boys, Priestess Pisces, Evolution Control Committee, Milnar, Sunflower Saints, Psycho Skeletons, Reagan's Polyp. Dave calls in late, feeling poorly, so we and the listeners "pray" for him. We announce the new SubGenius Bandcamp site and three upcoming devivals or otherwise Sub-centric parties. There is a discussion about the dangers of non-Frop drugs, and a reaction to the news of lab-grown penii. Some dare call it surrealism. We call it Morealism.
