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

Lots of new music in this (Bern Brijis, Steev Inglish, Amoeba Knievel, Joe Zeziorski, Psycho Skeletons) and a truly gut-splitting sermon about Excremeditation by Dr. G. Gordon Gordon, but mostly it is some "Best of Puzzling Evidence" as selected by Rev. Baby Bear and Rev. Stang. The main spouters are Dr. Hal and Dr. Philo Drummond, and they do some killer verbal riffs about Church doctrine as well as a science lesson that you'll never forget, especially if you google the images they suggest!

The WCSB studio phones were broken this night -- and so was the whole studio! Yet we broadcast anyway. The first half of the show features one song each by the bands that will perform at the March 21 Winterstar Ball in Cleveland: Rev. Phat ManDee, Muruga Booker and the Cosmic Hoedown band, Steev Inglish, Brian Henke, Mayan Ruins and Sister Melodious Chops (the band Wei is in). (The Ball is a benefit for ACE/Starwood and the late Jeff Rosenbaum.) The second half is Stang reading rants by Phineas Narco and The Good Rev. Roger, and twenty solid minutes of uncut Puzzling Evidence Show with Dr. Philo Drummond and Dr. Hal, with a very interesting discussion of the ins and outs of managing a sperm bank.

Body Image and Daylight Savings Time: Space Control Vs. Time Control

We were feeling frisky this time, possibly because of the Daylight Savings Time change that happened the night before. The opening 15 minutes includes some collages by a new contributor, Rev. Carlton, and a classic Father Joe Mama rant. "The LUV of "Bob." Also, the Wolfman gets counselling in a clip from THE HOUSE OF DRACULA. But then we go live, and Dave calls in, and it gets pretty darned cosmical and Time-Control-y. Stang reads a short rant on DST by Rev. Zafod. The marvels of Creationism are discussed at length. Dave reveals that he has the DNA of Jesus in him, which leads to a discussion of possibly isolating that God gene, cloning God, then sending Him back in time to stop the Big Bang from happening and thus allowing PURE Slack to continue forever. Or something. Oh and TUROK, SON OF STONE is fully analyzed. Yet another British hard rock version of THE BRAG OF THE SUBGENIUS is played.

We took a break to play this pre-recorded episode of somebody else's show! It was their idea, too. Last week Rev. Stang was interviewed for a podcast called PROJECT ARCHIVIST (projectarchivist.com). Since it isn't a SubGenius show, Stang actually EXPLAINS the Church of the SubGenius, "Bob" Dobbs, and everything else important. It's completely different from the "normal" Hour of Slack in that in this one, Stang barks almost the whole time, WITHOUT DAVE! There's some Lemurian collagery first, and then 48 minutes of the Project Archivist show. A song by Popess Pantiara and a Steaming Sack of Slack close the show.

At first it's a fairly "normal" show (by Hour of Slack standards anyway). Then, seemingly out of desperation, Stang starts reading ONAN CANOBITE'S DECEMBER 2014 SERMON. For 20 minutes, the show alternates between Stang reading chunks of the great ONAN SERMON and Dave doing his patented surrealist extemporaneizing -- altogether, an excellent combo of clever writing and pure Spouting. At the climax, the worst "Bob" song in the world is played! We apologize for NOTHING!

"Things haven't really gotten any worse -- just YOU!" That was one of the cheery things that was said during the live part. For the first 22 minutes, however, it's a 35-track collage of everything from mean one-liners denouncing Stang to mind-blowing fake commercials by Rev. Bleepo Abernathy. (As always, see the track list at subgenius.com's Radio section for the endless details.) Lots of bits by LeMur, The Large, Norel pref (from the olden days) and there's even a song by Stang & Wei's grandsons! It would all be charming were it not so sick. Come to think of it, the live part delves into some pretty darned sick subjects indeed. This is one of those shows where you hear Wei say "Gross!" a lot.

Rev. Ivan Stang and Princess Wei 'R.' Doe went searching for America, and found the Salton Sea. After some great musicollage with Lemur, Timothy Leary, Rev. Bleepo Abernathy, Glassmadness, GWAR, Nenslo, ZZ Top, and The Rudy Schwartz Project, Stang and Doe describe their travel adventures to Lonesome Cowboy Dave, who responds Davishly. Subjects include a Yes Chimp for Stang, V. Swarup's audio book "Q & A", Chameleonalia, the Bone Yard in Tucson, Dave's cough, Wei's mom in Carlsbad Caverns, The Thing?, and a sick clip from John Waters reading his audiobook "Carsick." StangDoe describe The Salton Sea area in grisly detail and play a very strange location recording of animal life in remote Stang County, Texas. American Sniper and The Interview are mocked and Dr. Sinister plays a redneck. The Rudy Schwartz Project performs the Swinging Love Corpses hit song, "Pick a Booger." The strange "STANG PUKES YOU" grafitti in Japan is described. Dave rants about the end of the world and Stang rants about mispronunciations of Wei's name. Dr. Sinister analyzes Dave's protest songs, then the classic anti-religious-nut-country protest song "Kill for God" by The Rudy Schwartz Project is played.

SubG-Negativland-Puzzling Evidence Thanksgiving Executive Banquet II

Nov. 25, 2005

This rerun show (originally #1024)  is interstrewn with our ever-present killer klips by Mister Fernandinande LeMur and Rev. Norel Pref, but most of it (labeled below as "SubNegPuz") is edited from the 5 hour Thanksgiving Business Banquet we enjoyed at the KPFA studios in Berkeley (kpfa.org), thanks to Don Joyce's Over the Edge and Doug Wellman's Puzzling Evidence. They are co-hosting and co-mixing. So to speak. 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.
