Hour of Slack #1254 - The Men Who Stare at the Vulcan Jedi Mentat's Lawn Mower Vs. the Space Goats (Live 2010-4-25)

After some audio collage and special movie dialog clips, and three unusual anti-drug songs, it's solid blabberjawed yakdomness from Rev. Ivan Stang, Princess Wei R. Doe and insidious caller Lonesome Cowboy Dave. The general overall theme is, as the title indicates, The Men Who Stare at the Vulcan Jedi Mentat's Lawn Mower versus The Space Goats. Sub-subjects: sex, the fear of homophobes, remote viewing, drugs, the Yeti Taint, X-Day, the possibility that extraterrestrials are diseases, and the new DEVO album.

Hour of Slack #1251 - Rerun of #787 (2001 A.D.) -- All-Purpose Show

We'll probably be back live next week, or at least with a new edited show, but this month we've been finishing up Stage One of the huge secret SubGenius project that we so love to hint about... and we're behind on promoting X-DAY, the annual SubGenius festival to end this planet's dominance by humans, and to replace it with the duminance of SubGeniuses. This particular episode owes much to the late Prof Chas Smith's ESO Swamp Radio on WCSB Cleveland, which was practically half of Hour of Slack for about a decade. Starts out raunchy (with Fat Harry White), then goes to somewhat more serious Conspiracy-hating. Music is by Little Fyodor, St. N and Hellena Handbasket, Einstein's Secret Orchestra, Lamprey Systems, The Morning 40 Federation, Artemia Salina.
