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

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.

This show is being broadcast and recorded on Sunday July First, at WCSB in Cleveland, four days before Thursday, July 5, at 7 am, X-Day, when the world will end for the Normals and BEGIN for the SubGeniuses. 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.

Rerun of #951. Puzzling Evidence show from KPFA, 7-9-04 has Dr. Hal and Philo Drummond reporting on their 7X-Day adventures... from this skeleton we hung documentary recordings from 7X-Day. Some audio is from the StangCam and other is from Pater Nostril's soundboard. Clips from the 7X-Day shows at WREK Atlanta's "Bob's Slacktime Funhouse" with The Lymph Node Institute and Rev. Susie the Floozie further illustrate the promise and tragedy of X-Day. Incidentally, we are posting this episode from Dr. Drummond's new skull farm in Kentucky!

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.
