Hour of Slack #1336 - Ministry of Slack Live at 14X-Day

The new kids on the SubGenius radio block are The Ministry of Slack. That show, with a large revolving cast, has been around as a podcast for a few short years, making the old-timers (Hour of Slack, The Puzzling Evidence Show, and "Bob's" Slacktime Fun House) look like mummies. Being strictly a podcast, not a broadcast, they are not beholden to FCC rules. Also, they all live in different places. At 14 X-Day the entire crew met and performed truly live for the first time. Rev. Xister of Ministry of Slack recorded it and sent me a pre-censored version with breaks for insertion of music/collage, which includes TWO new Rudy Schwartz Project songs, an Outmouth brainrip track, The Large, and De Capitater. There's also one clip each from The Puzzling Evidence Show (an unusual Philo-caller moment), and from Radio Synaesthesia (Dr. Sinister's impression of Southern Ohio).

Hour of Slack #1335 - Themeless Live Show 11-20-11 with Priestess Pisces, Pater & Petal Nostril

This show ended up even more chaotic than I, Stang, expected, and I expected chaos. For the first time ever, I let somebody besides Lonesome Cowboy Dave phone in and participate: Priestess Pisces. This was also the first time we've had live guests in the studio besides Dr. Hal, Dr. Sinister or Paul Krassner, if my memory serves me -- much less TWO Space Princesses. After the requisite 15 minutes of songs/collages/mini-sermons (Rev. Frodis "Suds" Pshaw, Little Jack Melody, The Puzzling Evidence Show, The Duke of Uke and The Rudy Schwartz Project), it's all talk. Subjects include: the Buzz of Dave; scrapple; the new Google+ and Twitter sites by which I am gradually being replaced by tough women who use me as their plaything; The Rudy Schwartz Project videos; horrible recent news-making events and even worse puns derived thereof; controlled nose hair growth; pepper spray as a sex aid; "Bob's" DePends; some talk of Thatan's problems at Starwood and 14X-Day Drill; and Lonesome Cowboy Dave's habit of saying "I'm sorry" a lot. It ends with a special recent cut by DEVO.

Hour of Slack #1333 -- Live 11-6-11: Pledge Drive Madness

 Because HOUR OF SLACK is, among other things, a real show on a real broadcast radio station -- albeit a noncommercial one -- we have to do pledge drives. And we LOVE to. It's the ONLY time we get to act like REAL PREACHERS: shamelessly grubbing every possible penny from believers and/or listeners. We have edited this episode a bit to make it a generic pledge drive show, one that any of our sister stations can use for their own pledge drives, and we have tried to do it in such a way as to make it entertaining even to the Internet listeners who have not yet started being charged per download. (We are also preparing our listeners for the day, soon to come, when downloads will no longer be free. This is for SURVIVAL as much as for Slack.) There's some very funny material from new contributors like Dub Diablo and Rev. de Capitater, as well as old stand-bys like The Puzzling Evidence Show, Evolution Control Committee and Rev. Frodis "Suds" Pshaw. But half of it is pure holy WHEEDLING by Lonesome Cowboy Dave and Rev. Stang. (Princess Wei and Dr. Sinister were on the phone lines taking pledges.) We thank those who pledged and, even more, those who have already donated, whether to us or to WCSB-Cleveland. Your donations are what keep the wheels of Slack rolling, and the grindstone of Slack nose-smoothing.
