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

Sorry... this is one of those episodes where we get much more REAL than usual. In what they call "real life," over the last few weeks, we SubGeniuses got some fairly good news and some horribly bad news about our brothers and sisters, and ourselves, and this episode is partly about that. Extracting any Slack at all from what came with the bad news has been quite a challenge, but, THERE IS STILL SLACK! Not much, but we still have just enough of a fingernail-hold on the edge of the cliff that we haven't fallen into the abyss quite yet, and still have the energy to whine about it all rather vocally. Rev. Onan Canobite has been spouting the PURE kinds of rants lately, and that's helping; Lonesome Cowboy Dave and Rev. Stang are still pretty old, but trying not to let on, this time. There's also some potentially helpful advice for people whose dogs just ate all their marijuana cookies, then puked them all up, and then ate the puke. And puked again. We sincerely hope that this episode isn't too much More Than You Needed to Know, but that is a possibility.

This is a rerun from 1993 of Episode #414, when Stang got caught with his pants down without special prepared radio-ready edits, at the station KNON in Dallas... so, between music cuts, he read long stretches of the uncut, first draft version of the Hell chapter from the second SubGenius bible, Revelation X. Much of this revelatory material about the Afterlives and Beforelives was subsequently cut from the chapter for security reasons, so this is the first time that those early basic censored holy SubGenius tenets have been re-revealed in 25 years. This is an especially appropriate old show, because so many of us have been dying lately.

This is ANOTHER least typical Hour of Slack ever. It was with some trepidation that we let last week's show be an hour of just one old man, Pappy Stang, talking, but it was our most popular show ever! So this week, it's an hour solid of TWO old men talking: Rev. Ivan Stang and Lonesome Cowboy Dave! We figure it'll be TWICE as popular! Topics include #MeThree, Slack, the hellish modern world, aging, Fate, "Bob," Slack, and how They're taking away our freedoms in the name of freedom. Recorded at Tarzan's on 2018-10-13.

Friends, this is probably the least typical Hour of Slack ever, with no weird audio cut-ups, no Rudy Schwartz Project music, no Psycho Skeletons or Rainmakers, no Lonesome Cowboy Dave, no Stang to speak of, in fact almost no SubGenius radio babbling or ranting at all. This whole episode is one SubGenius talking: Stang's father, "Pappy." He was a colorful character, a raconteur. He worked as a labor lawyer, but he was also a skilled woodworker and a Captain in Naval Intelligence in the Navy Reserve... and a 32nd degree Mason. His job, and the Navy as well, took him all over, and in his spare time he had some adventures. He was probably around 83 years old when we recorded his true story of going out on the ice for five days with a family of Eskimos - not city Eskimos, but the kind that drive dogsleds, holler "Mush!" and slay seals and polar bears. It's a sometimes funny, sometimes blood-curdling account.

Good Lord man! It's a real mish-mash of shows, all Churchly, all different, all messed up. We hear some really insane Time for the Show and some Brujaja with Anna Maul, but it all starts and stops (after the requisite collages and cartoon music) with those old pros from the Puzzling Evidence Shows, Dr. Hal and Dr. Drummond, brought together for last summer's Stangless 23rd X-Day Drill. Collages by Lemur, Cool Hand Chris and Silas Janzen; music by The Rudy Schwartz Project and The Rainmakers with a welter of strange background musics used by the spouters and yakkers of SubGenius Podcast-Land.

This one's a continuation of last week's show... might as well be the second hour of a two-hour multi-SubGenius-Show collision involving Hour of Slack, Puzzling Evidence (albeit with Dr. Hal and Dr. WDrummond but no Puzzling), Time for the Show, SubGenius Uberwomen of Austin and Cool Hand Chris collages, Lemur cut-ups, and the requisite Rudt Schwartz Project brand new masterpiece. And, a Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band classic! This episode's also strangely more laid-back, real-life and personal than usual. But don't worry, that won't continue.

SHOW COLLISION! Hour of Slack vs. Puzzling Evidence Vs. Time for the Show vs. SubGenius Uberwomen of Austin... vs. the collage loners! The cast: LeMur, Cool Hand Chris, Lonesome Cowboy Dave, Rev. Ivan Stang, Dr. Hal, Dr. Philo Drummond, Rev. Angry Larry, The Good Rev. Roger, Fidd Chewley, The peas, Dr. Argus Faux, Anna Maul, Dr. Brujaja, President Shroompecker. "What I MEANT to say, was, I’d surgically remove, lets say, the right eye of a living conscious person, but not all the way… I’d leave the optic nerve attached, albeit stretched, but gradually, and carefully, rotate and shift that right eyeball until it was pointed directly at the left eye — thus allowing the still conscious er, volunteer, to look at his own eye. These are the kinds of things I’ve THOUGHT of to do on X-Day, but from which I will refrain, because I’ll be too busy SAVING things. For that reason among others, I’m almost glad that X-Day didn’t happen in the Conspiracy 1998, because I wasn’t old and wise enough to fully appreciate that preservation is even more Slackful than vengeful destruction — as orgasmic as that may be. Anyway, that’s what I meant to say before I utterly spaced out. And now, on with the show, Hour of Slack #1,693."

A classic from March, 1991 (#275, on cassette) crossed with a 2003 WCSB show (#887) featuring some amazing off-the-cuff improvisations in song and word from a 2003 ESO Swamp Radio show (Prof. Chas Smith, Lonesome Cowboy Dave, Rev. Stang, Princess Wei). That ancient cassette also happened to have GREAT Desert Storm riffs by Puzzling Evidence, Dr. Howl, Gary G'broagfran and Papa Joe Mama. Like all that 1991 stuff, as long as Dan Quayle isn't mentioned, it's perfectly timely! The war never having ended, apparently. Reruns are not actually that easy to do, since they almost always have numerous embarrassing moments that must be replaced according to strict SubGenius rules of Hot-Swappable Prophecy.

NOW IT CAN BE TOLD! (Again -- this is a rerun of #989 from 2005) Only THE HOUR OF SLACK dares to re-transmit Dr. Onan Canobite's illicit shortwave broadcasts regarding THE TRUTH about the so-called "red" planet. Also: detailed descriptions of sexual reproduction among lower life forms living under the rocks of Mars, live devival recordings, new collagiasts Sudasana and JustJohn, and we try to ascertain whether or not Wolfbait is serious-serious or just bulldada-serious. And: PR Gnus.

Three new rants and a new short story! - albeit all read by Stang. The short story, The War Between the Futures, is by the former SubGenius formerly known as Nenslo, from his new book of children's stories. Two rants were written by Rev. Dr. Uncle Onan Canobite and by The Good Rev. Roger andf Dr. G. Gordon Gordon delivers one of his own. We also hear segments from 21X-Day with Dr. Philo Drummond, Dr. Hal, Rev. Angry Larry, Rev. Fanboy, and Rev. Feit C Taj, and from The SubGenius Uberwomen of Austin, Rev. Anna Maul and Dr. Brujaja. There's also a previously unheard X-Day song by Rev. Rock Roswell, and a new piece each by The Rudy Schwartz Project and The Psycho Skeletons. We're late with this one, but at least it's not a rerun!

Our show producer and host Rev. Ivan Stang suffered a head injury from a t-post driver last weekend while building a fence, and he's still hallucinating, so this show is a rerun. It's a good one though, half Puzzling Evidence Show and half clips from 6X-Day (2003). (And half media barrage and and half thrash-punk music. Perpetrators besides Philo, Dr. Hal, Stang and Puzzling Evidence include a super-group composed of The Amino Acids, Einstein's Secret Orchestra, and The Swingin' Love Corpses, The Minoan Brain Eaters, NOFX, CD Truth, Rev. Nickie Deathchick, Sinpaltimus Exmortis, Zozodada; there's also a lot of Media Barrage #3 "UFOs" from 1982, including the third-ever radio talk show appearance of Stang and Drummond, on the old KFJZ George Nolan show -- with Stang's rancher brother calling in to report cattle mutilations!

We're still between radio production studios, but that didn't stop The SubGenius UberWomen of Austin (Rev. Anna Maul and Dr. Brujaja) from visiting their neighborhood porn shop and reporting on it in detail. Nor can it stop Stang from calling Dr. Sinister's Radio Synaesthesia at WCSB Cleveland. Now does it affect collagists LeMur and Cool Hand Chris, or The Rudy Schwartz Project. And who'll stop The Rainmakers? Opens with a lovely discussion of lab-grown human-clone meat for purposes of cannibalism.

This episode features the unique team-up at the 21X-Day Drill event of Dr. Hal Robins and Rev. Anna Maul, with Rev. Mother Miller, Rev. Fanboy, Dr. Philo Drummond and others, in an unbroken 40-minute SubGenius conversation that sweats pure Slack. It's bracketed by songs and media barrages from our dependable friends The Rudy Schwartz Project, Cool Hand Chris, and Bob Walkenhorst (this time with his daughter Una!). The X-Day conversation is a classic nerd-out, an orgy of classic bulldada movie and comic references. Probably won't save the world, but it just might save some poor bastard's day if only because it proves that somebody somewhere is still getting Slack.

This is another basically Stangless show, although there is a 17-year-old Stang rant included that still works perfectly well today -- in fact, better, because what we used to envision as dark humor is now ordinary headline news. Much of this episode was recorded the second day of 21X-Day Drill, with Dr. Philo Drummond and Dr. Hal moving aside (mostly) to let younger Doktors Anna Maul, Rev. Fanboy and Rev. Feit C. Taj go at it using Tarzan's Mobile Radio Studio -- which gear is still in Ohio, whereas Stang is still having to produce these in Texas using equipment made from string, foil, snot and Scotch tape. Luckily there's also new Psycho Skeletons, Rudy Schwartz Project, and what we might call "Rainmakers Unplugged." Talk subjects include "Bob" Dobbs, the Church of the SubGenius, mutation, incontinent continents, Ripley's Believe It or Not, old food in the fridge, leaving the past behind, willful ignorance, and the fact that work is somebody else's idea.

Why did the Men from Planet X abandon us again? Why is the Banned list longer than the Pre-Registration list? Whence comes that amazing low frequency hum, if not the sheer disappointment of the SubGeniuses? Will there ever be amnesty for the SubGenius Kooks? Should we frop more on Mount Fropmore? Why does X-Day only work for pureblood Yetis? How well do propellor-beanies really work? Why is Stang gone? These questions and more are answered by Dr. Hal, Dr. Philo Drummond, Rev. Angry Larry, Rev. Fanboy and Rev. FEIT C TAJ in an array of excerpts captured at the 21st X-Day Drill. (Technically it's actually the 23rd Drill.) Also: "Emotional Support Hamster in the Walnut Room" by The Rudy Schwartz Project, some crazy collage by Cool Hand Chris and LeMur, and a super-secret new intro by Rev. Bleepo Abernathy!

Praise be to the SubGenius Media Mongering Imps of 21X-Day! Thanks to the recordings captured by Dr. Philo Drummond, Rev. Feit C Taj, and Rev. Fanboy, I, Stang, was able to cobble together an original show that's slightly less than a week late! It's the second hour of Dr. Hal and Dr. Philo Drummond gamely making Show happen on July 4 in front of a tiny audience, intercut with Rev. Fanboy and Rev. Feit C Taj from later (or earlier?) that same day. A day of hope, DASHED. There's also a brand new Rudy Schwartz Project song, some nice Cool Hand Chris collage, lots of LeMur, and an ending with The Rainmakers in an unusual live concert recording.

Dr. Philo Drummond and Dr. Hal supplant Rev. Stang as masters of Tarzan's Radio Station at the 21X-Day Drill! (Stang couldn't be there but he sent the portable studio with Princess Wei.) This is the first hour of several to come with this all-new, all-old new crew cast. Rev. Anna Maul, for instance, is new, and 40 years of The Puzzling Evidence Show is DAMN OLD. But, by Gobbs, we still GOT IT! So do LeMur, The Rudy Schwartz Project, and The Rainmakers. Discussion topics include: the Iceman's johnson - Aztec Mummy's johnson - the wine press of war on Earth - thinking multidimensionally - Stang, like Moses, can't enter the Promised Land - The Luck Plane - Basil Wolverton - Living Head movies and experiments - perfused heads in Russian history. Great astronomy lecture by Dr. Hal. The need to be in The Inner Ring, which drives The Conspiracy, and much much more.

Not a normal Hour of Slack. Due to hard Fate, Rev. Stang never made it to 21X-Day. Lots of others did, though, and some of them filled in for Stang as recording engineer of babbling weirdos at a campground. Thanks to Rev. Fanboy for hosting a show on July 4 and 5 on his own equipment, and getting the recordings to the Texas office so quickly! July 4 featured Rev. Fanboy and Rev. FEIT C TAJ; July 5 featured Rev. Anna Maul, Fanboy and new guy Rev. Y. B. Dobbs. What we have here are excerpts from the first parts of those two two-hour shows. There's also a really, really sick brand new song from The Rudy Schwartz Project's new album POSTAL CODE OF HAM, some old bulldada exploitation fake news bulldada compiled by Cool Hand Chris, and the requisite two Bob Walkenhorst/Rainmakers songs that happened to be, or seemed to be, by magic, perfectly descriptive of Rev. Stang's life that particular day. Plus LeMur News, in Washington.

Before Lonesome Cowboy Dave calls in we hear a brand new musical children's story by The Rudy Schwartz Project (with vocals by Stang!), some killer collages by Cool Hand Chris and Lemur, a brand new SubSong by The El Queso All-Stars, and two Walkenhorst songs.

This has never happened before! 21 X-Day is almost here, yet we're still trying to use up the recordings from last year's 20X-Day Drill. Editing time is at a premium these days, it seems. Is there such a thing as "too much Slack"? Perhaps... meanwhile, we have these precious recordings of the last moments before LAST year's dismal failure of a complete planetary overhaul. In the last hours before 7 am July 5, "2017," Rev. Anna Maul used Tarzan's Radio Station at Wisteria Campground to loudly await the saucers with guests Rev. Peas and then Rev. Fanboy. (This being the FIRST hour; we used Time Control to play the SECOND hour PREVIOUSLY!) Interspersed are songs and media barrages you have never heard, by bands and barragists that you HAVE heard almost every show for the last year or two, if you listen much. I.e. The Rainmakers, The Rudy Schwartz Project, The Psycho Skeletons, Cool Hand Chris, and the famous Fernandinande LeMur. We also feature a new song by Rev. Casey Wing.

It also has your normal songs by The Rudy Schwartz Project and Bob Walkenhorst, your normal audio collages that Cool Hand Chris sent in, your normal LeMur cuts, and Stang reading a rant by somebody younger (in this case, Rev. Eddie Romanov). In the live part, Dr. G. Gordon Gordon reviews Dave's novel "Neighborworld" and Stang reviews John Shirley's excellent (and opposite!) books "The Other End" (an enlightened and inspirational answer to the Left Behind series) and "In Extremis" (an anthology of his sickest short stories). Also: The coming civil war and The Good Old Days; time machine problems; deadly vermin of Stang Ranch; and the story of "Bob" Dobbs vs. the chem toilets.

This episode of The Hour of Slack is a rerun, but a MYSTERIOUS one. Our friend St. David Bachner has gone to the trouble of digitizing almost all of the first 1,100 Hours of Slack, transfering them from cassette tape to MP3, and making them freely downloadable on his website. We have been inspecting the logs of the downloads and noticed a couple of very strange things. Firstly, a suprising number of old shows are being downloaded by people in Russia and China. Secondly, while most of the old shows have been downloaded by an average of from 200 to 400 people, ONE of them has been downloaded almost 20,000 times! Our new shows get an average of like 3,000 downloads a month or so, but this one old show has been downloaded 20,000 times! We looked it up to see what was so special about it. It's Hour of Slack #863 from the year 2002, titled "TIME MADNESS," and it has some great stuff on it, but... damn if I know why this show out of all our 1200-odd shows has been copied by 20,000 people. Maybe YOU, dear listener, can figure it out. Please let us know, if you do.

I, Stang have been assigned to do a few catch-up interviews for The SubGenius Documentary, and I just got back from Portugal with tonight's riveting interview with Dr. G. Gordon Gordon, Assassin for Dobbs. Here at Stang Ranch in Texas, I also interviewed the astounding Rev. Anna Maul about her SubGenius career, AND we have recordings of her "Countdown to X-Day" show last July 5 from midnight to 7 am.

SHOW CRASH!The Puzzling Evidence Show physically crashed into The Hour of Slack! To make matters even more severe, it was the OLDEST version of The Puzzling Evidence Show, because it included Dr. Gary G'Broagfran! It happened because an airplane carrying Doug Wellman, Gary G'Broagfran, and Rev. Eohippus Lovechild (who'll be on next week) went out of control while flying over Flyover Country, and crashed on Stang Ranch in rural Texas, right next to Tarzan's Radio Station! What could we do but activate The Third Microphone and call Lonesome Cowboy Dave? So what you get here -- and it is truly unique -- is, first, Gary ALL BY HIMSELF because Wellman and Stang abandoned him to the mix board (this is actually the funniest part of the show), and then the first and only known interaction between THE Puzzling Evidence and THE Lonesome Cowboy Dave... PLUS GARY!! The Dr. Hal part of The Puzzling Evidence Show, and the Philo Drummond part, have jammed with Dave plenty of times before, but wait'll you hear the ping-ponging bounce-back in the sandbox of the Dave AND the Puzz! There's also some great old new "media barrage" by Cool Hand Chris (using lots of ancient SubG stuff) and a tune from The Rudy Schwartz Project's elder album, "Salmon Dave." And: LeMur!

Rerun of #843 (2002)

59:28

Rerun of #843 (2002). We had to do our taxes, which are more complicated for this church than for most, so we're again presenting an especially good rerun -- at least, the label on the master had a scrawl on it in Stangwriting saying "Good one!" We know from the log however (seen at subgenius.com) that it has a fine Pater Nostril collage from devivals and other things, music by Saint N and Hellena Handbasket, lots of clips from good old Media Barrage Tape #5 (1982), LeMur, Nu-Monet, and Artemia Salina collages, much best live ESO Swamp Radio with Dave, Chas, StangDoe and callers, Puzzling Evidence, a Glassmadness classic "Bob" hymn, and even RastaBillyBob and "Zeeza."

This episode is partly a fundraiser show. Some SubGeniuses are currently Slackless. We can help because in some dim way, we actually are a kind of a, well, er, "church." There's some wonderful musical and bulldada weirdness at the beginning by our old buds Fernandinande Le Mur and The Rudy Schwartz Project, and then some Media Barrage by Cool Hand Chris. There's a killer segment of Podcrust from last 20X-Day Drill, recorded in the wee hours of July 5 by host Rev. Anna Maul, with guests Rev. Benard and Rev. Redacted. Then we call Lonesome Cowboy Dave in Ashtabula, Ohio, from the MegaFisTemple Lodge in Glen Rose, Texas, and wildness ensues. There's even a discussion about wildness in general.

It's a good time for reruns, and this is one of our favorites, from the days when Hour of Slack merged with Chas Smith's ESO Swamp Radio on WCSB. Lonesome Cowboy Dave is razzed and tortured by Stang (and defended by Wei) while Chas plays his ass off on several synthesizers. (Two songs spontaneously generate themselves.) This episode is particularly skewed towards paleontology and paleoanthropology, because Stang and Wei had visited the Cleveland Natural History Museum earlier in the day. The museum actually did display the jawbone of a Yeti, incidentally, and the Dobsonfly is a real insect.

One excellent section of this episode is the beautifully written "SubGenius Science: Unified Theory of Slack" by Joshua Scott Hotchkin, which Stang reads even though he disagrees with almost every sentence. There's a wonderful new instrumental by The Bishop called "Onward Slackful Soldiers," and NEW PR Gnus! The rest is a Lonesome Cowboy Dave call-in that dashes all over the harsh terrain, ruining the pads on its paws, later making it painful to get to the Soiling Area where the show can urinate. Yes, it's a fairly weird episode.

Thanks to Rev. Argus Faux for recording, somehow, the 8 hours of "radio" that happened at 20X-Day starting just before midnight, July 4, "2017," and ending about the time the world was supposed to end. It's all on an MP3 file that is EIGHT HOURS LONG, called "Suboxene Bloodstream Podcrust 3_01." The LAST four hours of it seems to be playbacks of weird edited canned SubGenius audio edits, but the first four hours feature that smooth talker Rev. Anna Maul and a rotating roster of "co-hosts" such as Rev. peas, Dr. Shoggoth and especially Rev. Fanboy (her most coherent co-host by far). The section we have started working with here is the first half of Hour Two. We have removed a few stretches of truly inside jokes, but otherwise it's unmolested. This episode also includes music by The Rudy Schwartz Project, Rev. Jimmy Ryan, Lothar and the Hand People, and The Rainmakers, and an intro barrage by Rev. Cool Hand Chris. Stang also explains his little sister's new vocabulary words for the various feathers on a dog, and reads some interesting sections from a National Geographic article about alcohol and human evolution, with background music by Shpongle.

THIS EPISODE IS TOTALLY INEBRIATED! We weren't, NECESSARILY, when we assembled this show in August of the so-called year "2003," but the episode itself is WAY high. The mad audio mutator, Mr. Fernandinande LeMur, was on a real tear then, as were we of the ESO Swamp Radio Show on WCSB in Cleveland. That was Prof. Chas Smith's show, which became the aptly named Brain Rot Radio Theater during the sections with Lonesome Cowboy Dave, Rev. Stang. and Princess Wei. Other arteests represented include DJ Pooh and Mistah Grimm, Lump5, Phineas Narco, Puzzling Evidence Show with Philo Drummond and Dr. Hal, Elvis Hitler, NOFX, Heart Ignition, CD Truth, The Streets, and "jarto." All in all this is one of our nuttier shows. One might be hard pressed to see how this material intersects with a sober subject like "Bob" Dobbs and the Church of the SubGenius.

This is one of the best SubGenius radio show episodes ever made and it's not an Hour of Slack! It's Episode #51 of Rev. Susie the Floozie's "Bob's" Slack Time Funhouse, originally broadcast on WREK-Atalanta in 1994. Susie is the greatest audio collage editor of all time, and this is one of her best mixes. It's got EVERYTHING! In it's ORIGINAL FORM, yet! (You'll see what we mean, take our word for it!) There must be hundreds of separate tracks and cuts, expertly woven together by Susie, and interspersed with her amazingly delivered rants and lots of very rare, very weird music. And all of it INSANELY DOBBS-CENTRIC!

This is like the rerunniest show we ever done run! It was assembled around 2002 like a Frankenstein's monster from our favorite clips, extracted with great care out of the vast hoard of universally favorite SubGenius albums and tapes made since 1980.

There are SubGenius radio shows besides The Hour of Slack. The Puzzling Evidence Show and "Bob's" Slack Time Funhouse have been on air for as long or longer, and there have been other spinoffs that went extinct. But now there is a new, powerful podcast, one that erupted like a pustule out of the Thorazine Urine Podcrust comedy nontroup, called Time For The Show! The latest incarnations have been better recorded and had less cussing than earlier ones, and #102 (Jan. 8, "2018")had Stang as a guest, so for obvious reasons Stang decided to just run that insane thing pretty much as is. You can hear Time for the Show at timeforthewebsite.com OR subgeniuses.com OR hypercubelaboratory.com. Or look at the Hour of Slack Radio section of SubGenius.com. Anyway the purveyors of Time for the Show so far have been Rev. Fidd Chewley, Dr. Argus Faux, and the ever insecure Rev. Peas, all of them heard on recent Hours of Slack on recordings from X-Day Drills.

Down in the Medicine Shithole! Thanks to the President, we are now free to play, on public airwaves available to children, songs like "Shithole Town" by The Rainmakers! (Actually, we censored the broadcast version; this version is 18 minutes longer than an hour, too!) Most of the show is a good ol' live chat with Lonesome Cowboy Dave, recorded at Tarzan's at Stang Ranch, but (as always) on Sunday night just like a real show. Remastered versions of four songs by The Rudy Schwartz Poject and one by Lothar and the Hand People (!) form the opening twenty minutes but after that it's all about the smell of the fish people, the interchangeability of Trump and shit, shit holes, dingleberries, Trumphole towns, Jimmy Swaggart, Stormy Waters, British pee party tapes, what it's like down in The Medicine Fish Hole, yankin' out fresh expressions, The Master Game, Masonic Illuminati, the judging categories of Pyroflatulation contests.

This Hour of Slack  is by necessity and choice a rerun of #411 from Sept. 1993, which was requested by a long-time listener, and when we checked it out we could hear why. It's REALLY unusual and features some excellent rants by the then-high-schooler named Reverend Gobi, who had a SubGenius show at her high school radio station. They're a real blast of fresh air from the ancient past.

Simple! The first half is the last last half hour of the last Radio Synaesthesia show of 2017 on WCSB, with Stang and Doe joining by phone with a big gang of WCSB Subs at the station to ring in whatever new year this actually is: host Dr. Sinister and numerous other comedians, DJs, ex-DJs, and ex-cons. The only non-Stang SubGenius in the Glen Rose area, Dr. Sinsomniac, does a great call-in too. The second half is part of a major new (well, maybe old, but mostly new to us) "media barrage" style collage by Cool Hand Chris aka Rev. Christian Blatter, a highlight of which is the Star Wars saga done rap-style.

The grandsons were here and Rev. Stang had so much fun counting his blessings that he totally lost count of his jobs. What are the holidays without Slack and reruns? Sappy, nostalgia-provoking reruns on TV are what Christmas is all about, right? Plus, it gives us a break. This is the hoary old annual traditional Xmas Re-Rerun of #867 (and 921 and 1026, 1077, 1129, 1236, 1338, 1497, 1549, 1602, 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, going back to the show's beginning in 1985 at KNON, Dallas. Includes over 66 separate tracks/songs/bits! And no, not one bit has been changed in all these years. Now that's Slack!

This is Hour of Slack number 450, rerun from July of t"1994" when the show was only nine years old and still being produced in Dallas. We were between radio stations then, so we relied more on clips from other SubGeniusly radio shows like Puzzling Evidence in San Francisco and ESO Swamp Radio Brain Rot Theater in Cleveland on WCSB, and also on cassette tapes that were mailed in. It was the days before the Internet, and people spent more time on things like making tapes and mailing them around. People also read and wrote books in those days, and this episode reflects all that. We have PuzEv, Drs. 4 "Bob" pretending to invent the Church, Lonesome Cowboy Dave's rant-sterpiece, "Corruptigating Worms"; Stang reads from Donna Kossey's book KOOKS regarding Nation of Islam, and we hear strange music from Slouch, The Merkins, Lonesome Cowboy Dave and Captain Beefheart.

A pretty crazy episode. Clearly confusing directions! Stang reads from our next publishing event, the novel EYELASH by Nikolai Kingsley. The Rainmakers, classics x 3. The history of Xists inventing Yetis, Yetis inventing humans, Why hide the edge of the Flat Earth? Where SubGeniuses come from. The Conspiracy destroyed Earth, switched with Mars - now we'll finish the job from a distance, seen in VR. "I don't care if I'm in the Matrix." Dave on THEY LIVE. Sell the Sonic BM buzz to Devo! People related by name. Repenting on the deathbed. That's how they destroyed Earth the first time! Emergentiles gone evil. THE CHURCH OF THE SENIOR SUBGENIUS.  Internet-only bonus: Stang and his two grandsons hunt "Bob" in the Lost Cave.

The incredible rabble-rousing live devival rant "WHAT IF...?" by Papa Joe Mama highlights this episode and possibly this century. Believer-bashing rock songs by The Rainmakers and The Rudy Schwartz Project do too. We hear the opening installment of the third episode of Time for the Show, a scrum-influenced prodcast from, in this case, Faux/Chewley/Peas. The 1984 version of Mark Mothersbaugh weighs in on Dobbs Sex and SubGenius philosophy. Then there's the rest of the show, recorded at Stang Ranch with Lonesome Cowboy Dave calling in, but since we just got our copy of Horizon Zero Dawn today, we're going to keep this blurb short. There's some talk about about the Orgozmonic Chamber of "Bob" and Grampires, and Stang is divisive. There is an unusually long and rambling post-Show Internet-only conversation that stretches the Internet version out to 90 minutes.

First live show from Stang Ranch! Well, they're prerecorded, but we do then at 9 pm Sundays just like at the station in Cleveland, and we strive to PRETEND it's live so that we don't have to do much editing. The discussions veers all over SubGenius Creation but the theme to which we keep returning is the timely one of sexual harassment by old rich fat men. A couple of Church secrets are even revealed! Two songs by The Rainmakers from the 1996 album SKIN are remarkably pertinent this particular month: "Different Rub" and "Good Sons and Daughters. The first 10 minutes however is solid Rudy Schwartz Project from a remastered version of their classic album DON'T GET CHARRED, GET PUFFY.

We managed to stay on Show schedule through our move from Ohio to Texas, but the strenuous unpacking process was what finally got the best of us and put us behind by a week. We're catching up with reruns, this one being a great example of the Hours of Slack from the early 2000s that relied on plenty of ESO Swamp Radio (WCSB Cleveland by host Chas Smith, with Ivan Stang and Lonesome Cowboy Dave) and The Puzzling Evidence Show on KPFA Berkeley by host Puzzling Evidence and cohosts Dr. Hal and Dr. Philo Drummond. We had a lot more fresh collages coming in via Usenet in those days too, in this case by Rev. nu-monet and Jupiter Research. This episode features some clips from the Stang sermon with ESO live back-up at Winterstar Symposium, and the ESO song "Wilderness of "Bob"" performed live there. Winterstar was a smaller, indoor version of Starwood held by A.C.E. of Cleveland and it elicited great gut blowout. It ended because the excellent rural Ohio everything-goes resort folded. Today there is an annual Winterstar Ball held at The Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland until another anything-goes winter indoor resort can be found in Northern Ohio. If it happens we'll be there!

This one's a Radio Synaesthesia show without Dr. Sinister, with Stang at the controls, Princess Wei and Dr. Hal (with yet another new song!) in the studio, and the Lonesome Cowboy on the phone, recorded July 9 "2017." Many Church secrets are revealed including the history of SubGenius transgender weddings. Pretty much everything important is discussed, followed by discussions of everything else. Hopefully we will have Tarzan's Radio Station fully cranked up next week.

Dr. Sinister Post-X-Day Radio Synaesthesia Show with Dr. Hal, StangDoe, Dave

Live at WCSB 2017-7-9

We are at Stang Ranch and Tarzan's Radio Station is set up, but we're still unpacking everything ELSE and have to change our address on EVERYTHING. The new address for SubGenius Foundation is Box 807 Glen Rose Texas 76043.We saved a Radio Synaesthesia show that hasn't been on Hour of Slack for this week, recorded at WCSB on July 9 of the so-called 2017, right after X-Day Drill #20. Dr. Sinister kept Princess Wei, Rev. Stang, and Dr. Hal, in the station for an extra two hours, and Lonesome Cowboy Dave called in. This is the first hour.

Stang credits Mayan Ruins, plugs Starwood, describes how it's mated with X-Day. Church of All Worlds and goat-unicorns. Why a goat? origin and result: Rev. Magdalen can't have SubGenius stuff in New York. New York state judges; Texas lawyers can sleep in court. Lonesome Cowboy Dave calls in. Sold 6 copies of Neighborworld. Dave's colon and convergent evolution. Dave tells tale of Sinister as stand-up comic. X-Day Drill and the awful new revelations. Hal's new song "TAKE UP THE SLACK"! New X-Day revelations. The movie people filmed Onan's new song and a whole bunch of other stuff - much filmed already. Obstructionists in the Church. Brought huge dog to X-Day Drill. Dammett and the cat who made him her little bitch. The mysteries of Wisteria - monsters, insects, spiders.  The disgusting pond scum. Wisteria as a strip mine that was rehabilitated. The terrible derecho weather disaster of 4 X-Days ago -- no power in Ohio EXCEPT Wisteria. Horrible weather in Arizona. Fossil fish of Ohio. Monsters of Ohio. New caller "Nightwing" confused re: turtles. Wei's ageless newt. Stang's video "FIG - The Newt That Time Forgot" - microorganism movie "Micro Monsters" on revstang YouTube channel. Philo wants ads for Roku. The SubGenius video archives -- Stang's new chore. Hoping to film more SubG old-timers. Robert Crumb and the Church. SubG celebs. David Byrne and the Puzzling Evidence scene in True Stories. Goat Yoga on Stang Ranch. Dave was a refugee from Middle East. Goat meat restaurants. Goat-killin'and skinnin'. World might end tomorrow but probably go to Starwood instead. Dave on Trotsky and Lenin. Why "Bob" Dobbs stopped showing up at Devivals. When Dr. Sinister saw "Bob" get hit by a bus. "Bob's" both the mouth and anus of the Universe! Dr. Sinister breaks and does credits.

We start with a rant and the song "Reckoning Day" by THE RAINMAKERS recorded June 2nd 2017 at Knuckleheads Garage. We made it to Stang Ranch Texas, intact with ALL OUR STUFF, the entire Church of the SubGenius main media archive and Slack Altar elements, after a truly strenuous and taxing house move. We're still unpacking, but basically the huge move is over and we can emit this new-like Hour of Slack #1645, maybe a little late. It was recorded September 17, "2017," on Dr. Sinister's show on WCSB Cleveland, Radio Synaesthesia, which follows Hour of Slack there on Sunday nights. We stuck around the station for two hours, and Lonesome Cowboy Dave called in.

RED ALERT! The Kickstarter effort for the documentary about the Church ends in five days and it's all or nothing! It's raised $130,000 but needs one last mighty push to reach the goal! Even if you're stone cold broke yourself, TELL EVERYONE!

It's all about dogs. There's some great Swinging Love Corpses, The Rainmakers, and The Psycho Skeletons in this, and a sermon by Rev. deFalk, but mostly it's a tribute to our late, great SubGenius hound dog, Dammett, who boarded the Saucers at age 12 on Sept. 29, or St. Dammett / Bite the Mailman Day. (Thanks to Rev. Guimo for that idea.) We also ALMOST reveal MASSIVE Church secrets, and discuss the SubGenius Yard Sale which had ended just before this show started, but the best parts are about having and losing a great dog pal... our little boy, old as he was. The highlight is a recording of Dammett howl-dueling with a pack of coyotes in the dead of night.

Music includes two Rainmakers, two Dr. Faux and the Right Angles, one DK Jones, and one Xposed 4Heads. The rest of this episode is live SubGenius gossip and delivered knowledge from the called ministers of J. R. "Bob" Dobbs, those being Rev. Ivan Stang, Princess Wei 'R.' Doe, and Lonesome Cowboy Dave, broadcast from WCSB Cleveland on Sunday night, Sept. 3, "2017." Dave was especially off the hook, mental mash-up-wise. Everything was covered thoroughly. No summation possible.

Live 2017-08-27

Music includes very old (The Monkees, Glassmadness, Dr. G. Gordon Gordon and Drs. for Extreme Prejudice) and very new (Dr. Faux and the Right Angles, Xposed 4Heads, and two songs from a 2014 album by The Rainmakers that was new to us but uncannily timely. Then it gets talky, with a discussion about the Western Jackelope from Stang Ranch followed by some Thorazine Urine Podcrust from 20X-Day (Peas, Faux, Shoggoth in this case), and finally the Lonesome Cowboy calls the station.

Dave's centrifuge of spittle versus The Elite. Who ARE the Elite? Fox News being the most mainstream and elite. Dave's slippery, soapy problems with connective tissue of the topic of discussion. The Air Force can induce a near-death OOB experience just by putting pilots in a centrifuge! Neighborworld is about to be on sale! The Salton Sea and the SubGenius in Mexicali or Calexico. Dave's cousin Fornicato. Dave's novel Neighborworld about to be published; excerpt. A mouse gnaws on Dave's phone line. Stang's job and the SubGenius documentary. Hurricane Harvey versus Obama's flood regulations (removed by Trump 2 weeks prior). Crazy greed-mongerers like "Bob." Wei's new word: EXTEMPORADIO. Podcrust of 20X-Day. The Texas studio, where gravity is higher.

This episode features both the Ask Dr. Hal Show from the 20X-Day Drill and a lot of music both old and new -- and a Rainmakers album, "Monster Movie," which was done some years ago but is new to us. The show opens with a great Rainmakers song about conspiracy kooks, "Who's At the Wheel," followed by "The Dallas Cowboys, Jesus and Me" (classic Rudy Schwartz Project). Dr. Argus Faux and The Right Angles perform his song about the Church, "SubGenius," and after some Ask Dr. Hal we hear another "new" Rainmakers song, "Monster Movie." Xposed 4Heads follow more Dr. Hal asking with "Push Me." After the last Hal answers we hear live instrumentals - The Right Angles from a Florida show and a medley by The Amino Acids recorded at 20X-Day. The show closes with yet another original new SubGenius song, "No Slack, No Hope" by Rev. Loveland of Artificial Telepathy. Also included is a recording of Rev. Stang's last minute warning about the Eclipse and possible dangers from a test of The Beacon, from a live broadcast the day before.

One of our best friends died last Friday and this episode is about him. The sick humorist, master heckler and Great Badfilm archivist has taken his puns to “Bob” and “shot through,” as the late Pappy Stang put it. It was not exactly unexpected, and Dr. Dark was extremely well prepared, but we got the news just a few hours before this broadcast and were just starting to get shaken up. Such things take a while to sink in. We tried to pick some music he would like so there is some classic Rudy Schwartz Project in this show as well as an inspiring opening song by Xposed 4Heads. The background music is from classic Universal monster movies. Stang also reads an excellent rant by The Good Reverend Roger about staying weird, often an uphill battle. There is some philosophizing about death and the meaning of life, talk of an afterlife, etc., but mainly it’s three old folks remembering and celebrating an old friend. He was quite a character, to put it mildly. He is the only SubGenius besides Rev. Stang who was at every single X-Day Drill from 1996 to 2016, and was with Rev. Stang every single July 5 7 a.m. He is sorely missed although we are hoping for some Heckling from Beyond. If anybody could pull that off it would be Dr. Dark.

A week after the world failed to end on X-Day, it tried to at least reboot a week later in the form of Starwood Festival, an all-purpose mind-blower started in 1980. Rev. Ivan Stang takes his annual Starwood sermon very seriously. (The SubGeniuses of X-day Drills are hecklers and would ruin the recording, whereas the pagans are polite and often strangely respectful.) The polite Rev. Stang has been holding back on saying certain things about our current governmental situation for months, because he wanted to be able to say them to real live people, right in their faces. He considers this rant to have been a failure, because afterwards no one came up and punched him in the nose.

A fine short burst of madness from Dr. Cozmac is followed by a brand new Dr. Hal song! Then for about 15 the conversation from 20X-Day Drill between Dr. Hal and Rev. Mother Miller continues. (We're saving some of that for later.) The second half of the episode is the uncut recording of Rev. Stang preaching a somewhat impromptu sermon at Starwood 2017 in the Pufferdome, a huge inflatable dome with strange acoustic qualities. Mayan Ruins provided musical accompaniment and Waking Dream filled the dome with projections, but you can't see those on the radio. The Pufferdome rant was meant to be timely and also the tease for the longer Starwood Main Stage sermon the next day, which we will play next week before we get back to the dozens of hours recorded at 20X-Day with a cast of at least ten. This episode ends with a song about dogs by The Rainmakers, from a late 2016 live performance -- because part of Stang's Pufferdome rant includes the story of Dammett the hound dog's travails during Starwood and X-Day.

Recorded at 20X-Day Drill (second day) with Dr. Hal, Rev. Susie the Floozie, Rev. Mother Doctor Miller, and Rev. Ivan Stang, and it’s all talk. However there is a nice glimpse of behind-the-scenes excitement at the campground setting, as Stang is informed of a SubGenius Kook interloper trying to invade the event, gets a bit steamed up about it, and has to leave Tarzan’s Radio Station in the hands of his co-hosts, who are unfamiliar with it. (Notice that it is Mother Miller who figures out the “ON” button.) While there is some good spontaneous ranting, much of this particular episode involves Church of the SubGenius “real-life” history and gossip, and the sex lives of lizards. NOTE: As the 20X-Day week proceeded, the old-timers like Dr. Hal and Stang did less and less at Tarzan’s, while younger podcrusters did more and more, which you will be hearing on future shows in abundance.

At the 20X-Day festival, which sadly turned out to be only a 22nd X-Day Drill, Dr. K'taden Legume and Rev. Ivan Stang revealed, and then attempted to actually USE, a recently-unearthed invention by J.R. "Bob" Dobbs himself-- a bizarre hybrid human-alien device/homunculus intended for use in directly communicating with the Xists themselves! The deeply disturbing story behind the device's assembly -- which involved Dr. Legume exhuming a corpse, and worse -- is first told to the crowd of astounded SubGeniuses by Legume. Then Stang, "feeling lucky," chose to volunteer himself as a channel or vessel for the device's initial possibly-sacrificial activation. The results, heard on recordings here, are controversial to say the very least. Indeed they threaten to tear the Church apart! Rev. Stang literally died briefly then returned to this plane to blurt out what MAY be an "ALTERNATE X-DAY PROPHECY" involving new dates and times!… but with the year maddeningly left unspecified! In this episode, guests Dr. Hal and Lonesome Cowboy Dave help Wei and Stang in trying to decipher the meaning of the event. Reasonable explanation was made immeasurably more difficult by an (if anything) even more frustrating translation by Rev. Sinphalimus Exmortis of yet another message, a series of numbers and sentences in English encoded algorithmically within a burst of noise that accompanied the "device's" activation. Thanks to an early release of the unedited recordings (this broadcast version being much truncated and devulgarized), already various SubGenius groups have jumped to conclusions and schismed into competing "denominations," such as the "MAY DIE-ISTS" and the "DIDJU LIE?-ists," the "Seventh Day Destructionists" and the "Fifths of Planetary Overdose-ists." We Elders and Hierarchites of The SubGenius Foundation, Inc., strongly advise SubGeniuses NOT to cling to simplistic conclusions but to remember that "Bob" plays in mysterious ways, to quote the late St. Stymie Debergerac. We are personally tending toward a "WHY NOT BOTH" approach, although that is probably anathema to those pitiful creatures, the SubGenius Fundamentalists. Listeners are urged to view the photographs and videos of the devices and the blueprint at the various usual Members-Only Internet forums.
EXTREMELY IMPORTANT NOTE: This show includes new songs by Dr. Hal ("I AM A SUBGENIUS") and by Dr. Faux ("Track 02")!

Recorded July 2 at Wisteria Event Center during the 20X-Day Drill. This is compiled from three video and audio recorder sources according to which source was most audible, but it is otherwise uncut and uncensored. We share this strange and unsettling revelation in the hopes that concerted research efforts will help make clear to us which of so many paths to take... if any. Whether one accepts this recorded evidence at face value, and how one interprets it, it very obviously up to the individual. Once again, Dobbs has provided no obvious and indisputable answer, but only a much deeper question.

This marks the first time we have ever posted a show online immediately after recording/broadcasting it WITHOUT LISTENING TO IT. At this posting, Dr. Hal and Rev. Ivan Stang recorded this show three hours earlier at Wisteria Event Center in Southern Ohio using Tarzan's Radio Station, The SubGenius Foundation's compact 3-mic, 2-cd sound mixing and recording system (made from stolen electronics parts, rubber bands, glue and snot). As always, it worked well on a picnic table on the stage of Caffeina's, the semi-outdoor cafe at this fine campground. The weather was a little hot, low 80s, but breezy enough, and the background video projections looked clear and colorful in contrast with sunlight glowing faintly through the huge hand-made Vinyl Dobbshead that we hung next to the impromptu recording studio. For the on-air blabbermouths, if not listeners necessarily, it was a relatively laid-back show rich in Slack.

The world ends tomorrow and you MAY die! We were too busy to mess with a live show, packing the iVan for our final trip to the Wisteria campground to meet the Men from Planet X, so we just played an old mysterious CD labeled "MISC. X-DAY" that turned out to be GREAT! It has about thirty tracks, many of which are themselves composed of thirty tracks. About twenty minutes of it was edited long ago by Pater Nostril, interweaving a sermon by Dr. K'taden Legume with Inadvertent Bulldada of all kinds. See you on the Saucers.

Rev. Stang unexpectedly had to fill in for Dr. Sinister, whose show Radio Synaesthesia usually follows Hour of Slack on WCSB-Cleveland. Failing to grok the station's new "wav cart" machine, Stang made up a Public Service Announcement off the top of his head on a subject with which he's had experience, heart attacks. Playing the score for "Lucifer Rising" in the background, Stang read long stretches from Lonesome Cowboy Dave's novel "Neighborworld" and an even longer stretch from "The Bobliographon" about why suicide is probably a bad idea. Then Stang played some of his own favorite music, just like a regular college radio DJ: "Auld Land Syne" done by Jimi Hendrix at the Filmore East; ESO's version of "Sounds of Silence;" Elvis Costello's "Goon Squad;" "Luck Be a Lady" from Guys and Dolls; "Battle of the Roses" by The Rainmakers, Captain Beefheart's "Trust Us," and finally Herb Alpert doing "Zorba the Greek"! Just like a REAL radio show! Also, we completely forgot to post this episode last week. It was a busy week.

Two really old classic Zappa songs, one new each by The Rudy Schwartz Project, Xposed 4Heads and Phat ManDee, then it's the Dave and Stang yak-off until the show closes with "Iodine 131" by Dave. X-Day is discussed in excruciating detail, and some secrets emerge about the SubGenius documentary project. Sarcastic comments about the coup inexplicably creep into the otherwise straightforward conversation. Straightforward I tell you.

That's our favorite quote by Rev. Argus Faux, who is not in this show! It starts with new music by The Rudy Schwartz Project, Xposed 4Heads, The Psycho Skeletons and Rev. Jimmy Ryan, with two very early Mothers of Invention classics. Then it's live Show with Lonesome Cowboy Dave calling in. We will admit that one thing that makes this episode different from most is that Rev. Stang was a bit tipsy, having come to the show from a memorial service that went a little longer and involved a bit more wine than Rev. Stang is used to. In fact it's the first time in decades that Stang has done a show while under the influence of anything! Dave claimed he thought Stang was unusually lively and organized, but that was an illusion.

These are the subjects of tonight's in-depth, incisive coverage of yesterday and tomorrow's events -- TODAY!

Bern Brijis, and Lonesome Cowboy Dave's NEW SONG, "Dasvidaniya, Comrade Trump"! Stang also reads the rant-letter "DEAR HUMANS" from The Good Reverend Roger. Then the lines are open and not only does Dave call in, but also Princess Wei and Dammett the SubGenius Wonder Hound! This was an episode of many firsts, including Dr. Sinister taking the place of Wei in the studio due to weather and canine autism. This episode allows a sneak peeks at numerous SubGenius formerly secret projects.

One of the more insane episodes, in terms of straight out bizarritude. We might recommend headphones and towels for this one. It is possible that you could be hurt mentally by the stereobrainsplitter effects. Heavy on the Lemur, Puzzling Evidence and ESO, there's also an IMPROVED mix of John Trubee's "A Blind Man's Penis," Bongwater, Steven Hawking reading Revelation X out-takes, and much more more. We hadn't heard this since 2003 and as we listened we stared at each other with our jaws hanging open. Weirder than usual, and it's NEVER "usual."

We returned to Ohio but are leaving again immediately for some work in California, so here's a rerun, #889 from May 2003 -- one of those dense old SubGenius shows with interwoven Puzzling Evidence and ESO radio, brain-ripping collages by LeMur and others. There's also DEVO as DOVE, Bill Hicks on Waco, the ATF and David Koresh from a bootleg, and music by DJ John K, Steve Earle and Rev. Cobblestone. The theme is "Back to "Bob."

Between the brand new RSP cuts, we also hear raw and bold recordings from some other musicians and doktors -- tracks of prurient interest that have accumulated since our last Internet-Only Special. St. Andru the Impaled sings two songs from 19X-Day, "Fuck It" and the end of "Saucer Built for Twelve." There are hideous and wonderful collages of insane preachers mashed with cool music, by Rev. Joe Jeziorski, Rev80 and Dr. Clovis Hoof & Shane Steddum, and depraved actual songs by Pilgrim Speakeasy and Rev. Bern Brijis. We even dare to play the classic "Dancin' With a Hard-On" by The Swingin' Love Corpses! Rev.

This is a fun one with new rants, new music, old Lemurian collages and one very funny classic from "1998": Stang's short stint as a guest on Bob Larson's evangelical Christian radio show. Stang also reads a killer rant by Rev. Roger NA, "I Have No Ass and I Must Shit," and that's followed by a very inspiring song from Xposed 4Heads' upcoming album, "Push Me." Then, a live (if incomplete) recording of Rev. Baby Bear's clever new "SubG 101" sermon, delivered at The Winterstar Ball in February, an instrumental by Robert Are, and Rev. Watt de Falk as Satan taking a call. Back at 19X-Day, Stang and Dr. Hal unveiled the new "Bob" Balls board game and describe the contents of the game box (and the CD that comes with it!). We rerun The Rudy Schwartz Project's pre-election Trump song, some excellent collage work by LeMur, and Dr. Hal recites a grisly poem about a child eaten by a lion. A recent composition by The Psycho Skeletons closes the show, although the Internet version has an extra 3 minutes of Stang exhorting the listeners to get real and "man up."

Can talk about anything from a SubG standpoint and make it boring. Dave's dog, Heathen's dog, Stang's dog - they train you so fast. Cats will train you. Lizards rub their glands on Susie.

Bob Clampett's well-timed coughs during screenings for censors. Could smoke in hospitals then. Ashtrays in churches. Susie smells like cherry pie. Beautiful X-Day - it'll rain soon, maybe at 7 am for saucer landing. Maybe we should be naked while awaiting saucers at 7 am? Use drone to make FAKE 7am? "Like every year?" Stang's weather radar app shows brain shaped cloud approaching. Discussing the expensive drone. The only woman under Pressure - Pastor Pressure. An edible X-Day thanks to Pressures, Nostrils and Heathens. After we destroy the planet tomorrow we'll all go to the bar - or fight. Susie lost Uranus but someone found it rolling down the road. The strange sentences said for purely practical reasons. Stang goes to set up the drone and Susie sits down. The Howlin' Larry Show. The evil baby eyebrows and camp rules at SubG Scofflaw Camp. An erie stillness at X-Day. Technical crazy stuff, search for music background while Stang is trying to recharge drone. Bobcast farming details. Milk them bulls! Stang's drone problem with rain and exotic batteries. Sent Rev. Obama money for drone license. Baby Loins, Nebraska. Nursery rhymes about child abuse and old crones - not P.C.

Hour of Slack #1609 - Stang Ranch SubKids Afterschool Special

Special guests this episode are Rev. Ivan Stang's two grandsons, Age 6 and Age 8 (the Sons of Sivet!), recorded at Tarzan's Radio Station, improvising a suspenseful radio play about a monster hunt in which the monster is "Bob" himself! Interspersed are seriously bulldadized "Old-Gulag" Lemur-style Classic Collages, by Lemur, and a historical dissertation by Stang about the cranks, crackpots, charlatans, psuedo-scientists and fellow cult leaders of Glen Rose, Texas (new alternate home of The SubGenius Foundation HQ). Background music by Mayan Ruins from "Sacred and Profane."

Hour of Slack #1608 - St. Joe Riley's Bulldada Barrage

This is a truly old-school classic rerun, with intensive high-speed bulldada mostly from St. Joe Riley's "Bulldada Barrage" of 1992 and a KPFA Puzzling Evidence Show (KPFA Berkeley) from March, 1988 featuring Wellman, Howll, and G'Broagfran, with Stang guesting, with calls to (not from) Dr. Philo Drummond, Papa Joe Mama and Pope Sternodox Keckhaver. Joe Riley's collage editing (aka media barrage) was ASTOUNDING, as heard throughout this rerun from the olden days. His video collages were even better and his show THE HYPNOTIC EYE can be seen on the ROKU channel OSI-74 in the SubGenius section (and YouTube). Also heard are the ranters of Church of New Faith, a Father Joe Mama sermon, lots of Jim Jones, OBE, and The Three Stooges.

Hour of Slack #1607 - "I Was a Cultist for the ATF"

Papa Joe Mama's 1998 SubGenius radio play "I Was a Cultist for the ATF" is but one of several short radio plays in this rerun from 2003. We also get "SubGenius Sci Fi" by The Bishop and the classic "High School Madness" by The Firesign Theatre from their album "Don't Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me the Pliers." Oddly, all of these old skits seem remarkably pertinent to this week's news events despite being such ancient parables about authoritarianism in THE CONSPIRACY. Lonesome Cowboy Dave and the late Chas Smith are heard in some great clips from ESO Swamp Radio (WCSB) and there are loads of keen Lemur Collages -- plus, Radio Lemuria, which has nothing to do with Lemur but features a fine rant by Rev. Lemuel Atom. Music cuts include Rev. Mojo Nixon and Rev. The Amino Acids!

Hour of Slack #1606 - Eloi-Face Sandwich and the Numa-Numa-ssiah

Live at Tarzan's Radio Station in Fossil House on Dokstok Mountain, Stang Ranch, Stangsville, Texas, 2017"-01-23 with Lonesome Cowboy Dave calling in.

The new Secretary of Hate's comments and "alternative facts." Ladies' March inaugural discrepancies and old fake news about what constitutes reality. Transporntainment, infotainment and Dave's novel NEIGHBORWORLD. "Info" and "scan" as suffixes, prefixes. The Winterstar Ball with Rev. Baby Bear preaching on Feb 12 at Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland. The old Winterstar site sold to some cult. Stang's scary certified letter from tax man wanting proof of "agricultural use" for Dokstok Mountain. How to qualify for "AG USE"? Butterfly sanctuary? Raise meerkats, lemurs, tree sloths? Stang's Roach Farm! "Bob's" prophecy re: roach steaks in 2000, broomsticks in the ass fad. Could make cheap broomsticks from cedars. Need to somehow have farm on 5 acres. Ant farm? Pet rock farm? SKULL FARMING! Roadside attraction "Destructionist Museum" and the excavations of our devil, alien, and cave SubGenius fossil skeletons. Man Eating Chicken and post-post-literate travelers. The SubGenius Abusement Park in Glen Rose Texas. Make the Yankee tourists sign the waiver and then we farm their skulls. The drones record it all anyway. Get Legume to do the Cave Bear Mating Dance of the Cave SubGenius wearing our bear skins for the roadside attraction. Get CULT EXEMPTION? But we have no minions. Stang speculates re: right wing conspiracy against SubGenius in town. But this is a low grade cult. President Howard Hughes. TrumpStop convenience stores/privately-owned prisons in poor neighborhoods, intellectual places. "Terrorists" who reverse the words on TrumpStop signs. Indian tribal militia and blue corn and President Hughes. The billionaire Presidents: Rothschild, Rockefeller, Morgan, Vanderbilt, Ford. Pinkertons and Wells Fargo and Penny Dreadful. The Hessians and Prussians. Mug of coffee in the Tarzan Radio Station. Don't replace it or you'll die. Pus thermometers. The Atlas of Sexual Depravity. Obsequeate the sebaceous glands. Dave's dad was a loiterer from the planet Plutocrat. This conversation is as weird as with that guy I thought was Rev. Peas. British and Soviet sex machines. Who's listening anyway? Listen to 'em listening! "If it crawls it bites, if it grows it sticks." Goat heads. Great Lakes baby hill made of solid Ontario quartz crystal near Kirtland Ohio - Dave will use it to mind control the region for evil. "Grab 'em by the country." "Shut the front door!" Regime change hasn't changed small-town Texas -- except all my tax bills suddenly doubled. Must farm Dobbsheads or Pipes -- Pipe Farm details. Pipe seeds, growing Pipes fornicating under the full moon. Medical Jalapeno farm. Conspiracy wants the property. Waylon Nelson song about Glen Rose. Stang's ex-wife raises bees and organized a Womens March in Beaumont! Everybody's ex-wife was heroic. Possible violence at women's marches? TOPLESS women's marches? Dave's last hair. Topless is legal in the frozen north. Sex is something you do with a hired person in a motel room. We're in the Black Hole and time is passing much faster outside. The ones who were outside the event horizon when we went in are all dead. We'll stay in the black hole until the next election. Morlocks know how to party and know how to barbecue. ELOI-FACE SANDWICH. Trump is the Numa-Numa-siah. "My Wife is a Slack Pile." Photo essay on our family piles. Morlock music, Morlock rock kicks ass. Very high voices, like the band Yes. Tarzan's Radio Station is in a cave - Dammett's voice and his autistic problems. We have to pay the vet to "touch him there." Dammett's strange obsessions. ((Dave talks about the room with the paintings -- CUT THIS PART BEFORE POSTING!!!!) Makes me want to dance! Dave's chimp arms. Pappy's Sons of the Pioneers tape - vinyl revival. When in Detroit, visit WEIRDSVILLE RECORDS!! The only brick and mortar store that sells SubGenis ordainment kits! Weirdsville also in Dave's book. Thunderpants. Geld the working class. People polite in real life but mean on the Internet. "I thought Pinks meant queers and sissies and commies!" Stang Pink Pity rant. Bravery of the Internet screen. "Your stuped!" Stang's obnoxious friend blamed everything on the Internet, specifically usenet. Internet was great when only smartypants knew what it was. Stang's internet history - AOL to Cleveland Freenet. Free outlaw world until it turned into TV. Every stupid thing validated now. You had to work HARD and go to creepy bookstores to get your kook ideas validated. Abortion malls Onion article was "fact" and NOW LOOK! Lies like "welfare queens" and all the people Hillary murdered with her bare hands. Dave's new song. We're the REAL elitists. Any idiot boy can grow up to be President if he has a rich daddy. Sudden end of show.

(On the Internet version only, 15 more minutes of secret Church gossip follows.)

Hour of Slack #1604 - Lost Rants Found!

We're still unearthing mystery clips of ranting and music from the hours and hours 19X-Day recordings, and two newly excavated rants are mounted here -- one by Rev. Argus Faux and one by Rev. Nuggett, both ranting their lungs out over music by The FukPs (in this case Rev. Angry Larry, Lord Rock God and Rev. Sinphaltimus Exmortis). Another rant, the excellent "Special Snowflakes" by The Good Rev. Roger, is read by Stang at 19X-Day. The rest is straight WCSB-style Stang-Doe-Dave spouting, but recorded at Stang Ranch insteada of WCSB. There we discussed the dangers of brains and knowledge in a Trumpian America, which is also illustrated in the song by The Attery Squash, "DEVO Was Right About Everything." The difference between scrum and crunt is further delineated. "We all fetch the stick when the big man throws it."

Hour of Slack #1602 - SubGenius Annual Xistlessnessmess Mix Rerun

What are the holidays without reruns? Sappy, nostalgia-provoking reruns on TV are what Christmas 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, 1549, 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, going back to the show's beginning in 1985 at KNON, Dallas. Includes over 66 separate tracks/songs/bits! And no, not one bit has been changed in all these years. In fact, this year we didn't even change the file name. It's still "1549." Now that's Slack!

Hour of Slack #1601 - Bow Before His Pea-ness

Heavily edited from 19X-Day, this episode features the fun and foibles of Rev. Peas all the way down of it. This would NOT be a good Hour of Slack for beginners or newbies. It is a sickeningly close look at the dark underbelly of the Church of the SubGenius and its called ministers. Well, the first half is, anyway. The last half is an uncut live "broadcast" from Fossil House at Stang Ranch, with Lonesome Cowboy Dave calling in by phone. The discussion ties cheap VR sets to tiny hands and the deliberate, planned mass enstupification of Western Civilization.
