Hour of Slack #1556 - Time Control, Connie Dobbs, Nickie Deathchick

STARRING REV. NICKIE DEATHCHICK!! A good all-purpose rerun of #774 from 2001, centered around various Time Control lessons, adoration of Connie Dobbs, the clock in your forehead, Rev. Nickie Deathhick's sexy sermons from the 2001 Tucson Oasis Devival, and some classic ESO Radio clips in which we describe the strange events at said Tucson devival. EARTH NEEDS WOMEN! This episode is also loaded with collages by Lemur, Amazonia Protectrix, Nu-Monet, and Jupiter Research; we also hear Rush Limbaugh sing "I'm a Nazi," and some music (and news) from The Bran Flakes. Rev. Bleepo Abernathy's Time Control ad is a cornerstone and the capstone is Rev. Nickie Deathchick's bonus XXX-rant at the end: "My Blow Jobs Are So Good..."

Hour of Slack #1554 - Dr. Sinister's Big Shtick

Again we scavenge Radio Synaesthesia by "phoning it in" from Texas but also sewing Dr. Sinister's talk show with SubGenius media barrages (by Dok Cosmac this time) and music from Rural War Room, The Fantastic Plastics, and a brand new Bobsong by Rev. Spalbort Xylexyzkell. Subjects covered: Surrealist jokes. Durian fruit. Stang has become normal lab rat like other Americans by watching TV and getting a smart phone. The new X-Files, SyFy Channel shows. Neural implants and motion sickness. Old folks and video games. Who'll be Inside The Dome, who'll be out. Trump's Wall around WCSB. "They won't respect ya unless ya kill 'em!" Dr. Sinister campaigns for President. Also starring Lonesome Cowboy Dave, No Money Mark and The Management.

Hour of Slack #1553 - The Self-Terrifying Whites of Dumbassica

For some odd reason this episode ended up being basically about fascism. It didn't start out that way, and the show itself probably didn't want to be that way, but it kept returning to that subject one way or another. In fact it did it on and off for three weeks of Rev. Stang and Lonesome Cowboy Dave calling in to Dr. Sinister's Radio Synaesthesia on WCSB Cleveland (Stang being away in rural Texas all December). We compressed those three shows, flensed out the worst drunk callers, and interspersed it with a powerful SubGenius media barrage by Rev. Cool Hand Chris Blatter plus a song by The Fantastic Plastics. Open carry in Texas, The Technocrats, selling dumb stuff to rich people, creating news events, goat fascism, Second Amendment and nuke silos, GovMart, armed Amazon drones, St. Penisburg, Legos, Minecraft and fascism, The Dobbshead Magic 8-Ball, these and other delicate subjects are broached and tackled or at least tickled. For a feel-good climax that's only on the Internet version of this episode, we tacked on a refreshing piece of political incorrectness from the 1970s: DOLEMITE FOR PRESIDENT by the late great St. Rudy Ray Moore, SubGenius Saint of Poetry.

Hour of Slack #1552 - New Slogans and Killing

Despite being away from Cleveland for over two months, we have managed to continue doing weekly shows by calling in from Stang Ranch in Texas to Dr. Sinister's Radio Synaesthesia on WCSB-Cleveland. This show is a mash-up of the December 6 and December 20 Synaesthesia shows, with the most egregiously drunk callers edited out and Lonesome Cowboy Dave left in, along with Stang and Doe. There's also new PR Gnus by LeMur and a great collage by Rev. Susie the Floozie on killing "Bob" (a main feature of the discussions as well). We also hear classic SubGenius songs about J. R. "Bob" Dobbs by Little Fyodor and Rev. Tony Bower and a new mind-splitter from Rural War Room.

Hour of Slack #1551 - BURN,

On the last Radio Synaesthesia show after 18X-Day, among many other things we talked about a terrible deed that we had collectively committed at the very climax of that fateful Drill. This week, our lawyers have advised that we can finally reveal the recordings of the "event" to prove it really happened, and to settle the rumors regarding just how bad it was. You can almost smell the meat cooking when you hear it! Disgusting, certainly, and yet unquestionably mouth-watering. Following that scandalous yet strangely appetising portion of the show, Rev. Andrew Genus calls in and helps us gently to the end of all of the 18X-Day Hours of Slack. We made the 18X-Day shows last from July "2015" to January "2016"! Praise "Bob"! It signals a New Year as well as the immediate need for a 19X-Day web page on SubSITE.

Hour of Slack #1550 - The Eulogy of Pappy

Rev. Ivan Stang's father, "Pappy," boarded the saucers on Nov. 9 at age 88. This Radio Synaesthesia show was recorded at WCSB-Cleveland about two weeks later, with Stang and Princess Wei joining host Dr. Sinister by phone from Stang Ranch in Stangsville, Texas. Lonesome Cowboy Dave also called in. The discussion covers many other things besides the death of the Stang patriarch, but it included a perfect edit-point for Stang to insert the recording of himself reading Pappy's eulogy to the local Stangsville Methodist church -- a eulogy which Pappy wrote himself! When you hear it, you'll clearly understand how Stang got the way he is. (Although if we had any similar Mammy recordings, it would be clear that both parents made Rev. Stang the SubGenius preacher-man he is today.) We also offer a list of SubGenius prescriptions for Seasonal Affective Disorder -- a list that caused some sensitive Internet humans great butthurt. But SubGeniuses understood.

NOTE: Dr. Sinister did not believe that the last movie starring the late Andy Griffith featured the venerable actor and Mayberry sheriff getting a blowjob. It is true and the name of the movie is "Play the Game."

Hour of Slack #1549 - SubGenius Ultimate Xistlessnessmess Mix Rerun

What are the holidays without reruns? Sappy, nostalgia-provoking reruns on TV are what Chistmas is all about, right? This is the hoary old annual traditional Xmas Re-Rerun of #867 (and 921 and 1026, 1077, 1129, 1236, 1338, 1497, 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! (But don't worry, Show #1550 is nonetheless already in the can and will be released soon as an antidote to this one.)

Hour of Slack #1548 - Circus Apocalypse and a SubGenius Wedding

We're back to the Radio Synaesthesia show recorded at WCSB Cleveland the night that the 21st X-Day Drill ended: July 5th of what is obviously not really "2015." Host Dr. Sinister had Dr. Hal and Rev. Stang in the studio, and on the phone, Dr. Philo Drummond, Princess Wei 'R.' Doe, and Lonesome Cowboy Dave, all reminiscing about the so-called "19X-Day" that had just happened. Interspersed with the talk show are edited documentary recordings of the specific events, such as the amazing if stomach-turning sideshow acts by Circus Apocalypse (St. Andrew the Impaled and Rev. David Apocalypse). You can see the photos on subgenius.com. Climaxing the show, as it might be, is a mostly uncut recording of the truly inspiring SubGenius wedding at X-Day of Rev. Faux and Rev. Aster, with music choices provided by Trademark G of ECC, and with a head launching at the end. It's an excellent example of a legal SubGenius marriage and full of helpful hints for beginning Ministers! One might call this Part Two of episode number 1546. There is a Part 3 to come.

Hour of Slack #1547 - A Smorgasbord of Shenanigans

We got a little behind, though some would call it big, so this Hour of Slack is a rerun of 2002's Hour of Slack #825. It's got some great bits from the late Chas Smith's ESO Radio on WCSB, with Chas, Stang and Lonecow Dave off the hook and on the loose. Interspered are some classic bulldada cuts from our ancient album Media Barrage #5. There's ranting by Stang, George Carlin, Hellpope Huey and many nameless crazy Texas preachers, rare music by Walls of Genius (Li'l Fyodor), The Four Letter Words and The El Queso All-Stars, and weird-ass collages that were current back in 2002 and yet still hold true today! For they ring with the Truth of J. R. "Bob" Dobbs and his The Church of the SubGenius. So there.
