Hour of Slack #1340 - SubGenius @ Starwood Festival 31 (Part 2)

We return to Starwood festival for the second half of Rev. Ivan Stang's annual Sermon to the Pagans, which includes readings from a rant by Rev. Sinphaltimus Exmortis as well as a quick but bone-chilling history of the Rosicrucians -- originally a 17th-century satire-on-cults, but from which grew most of the deadly-serious New Age movement, the O.T.O., and zillions of splinter-group False Prophets. The Rosicrucian origins and end results might not be as bone-chilling to the average person as they are to the minority of folks who created or contributed to satires on cults, only to find thousands of dipshits and numbskulls taking it all too seriously. The sermon is followed by a Q & A with the audience. Also included are a song by Phat ManDee and African collaborators recorded in the acoustically weird Pufferdome, numerous location recordings made by Stang and Wei, and a funny interview with Starwood co-founder Jeff Rosenbaum (aka St. Stymie de Bergerac) conducted by Church of All Worlds cofounder Oberon Zell (from the podcast "Pagans Tonight").

Hour of Slack #1339 - SubGenius @ Starwood Festival 31 (Part 1)

Being the Disbeliever Mascot of a huge pagan festival has its perks. The first half of Rev. Ivan Stang's annual Sermon to the Pagans is the main feature of this episode, which also includes a righteous short SubGenius sermon by Rev. "Suds" Pshaw and a longer interview with Stang conducted by Church of All Worlds founder Oberon Zell for the weekly podcast, "Pagans Tonight." There are also some location recordings and observations by Stang & Wei from Starwood, including a discussion with Lord Thatan himself, and even little bits of Ask Dr. Hal and a LeMur collage that we saved just for a Starwood show. Next week will feature Part 2 of Stang's sermon and more location recordings. Stang's sermon is not really all-Stang; it includes readings from shorter SubGenius-defining rants by Dr. Onan Canobite, Rev. Phineas Narco, the kooks of alt.slack and scrubgenius, and others.

Hour of Slack #1338 - SubGenius Ultimate Xistlessnessmess Mix Rerun Special

What are the holidays without reruns? This is the annual traditional Xmas Re-Rerun of #867 (& 921 and 1026, 1077, 1129 and 1236), 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. Includes over 66 separate tracks/songs/bits!

Hour of Slack #1337 - 7 AM July 5, "2011" - Waiting for the Xists

We had so hoped that we wouldn't have to produce this particular show; we had hoped that our Pleasure Robots and Sex Goddesses would edit it for us. Much of this show was recorded (on a video camera operated by Stang) on the last day of the 14 X-Day Drill, the morning when we awaited the Saucers from Planet X and once again got shafted instead of beamed up in a shaft of light. Various songs and other live Hour of Slack business from the Wisteria stage build up to the recordings of the Moment of Truth, which had to be edited considerably for the broadcast version. This Internet version, however, is not only uncut but has a bonus extra 9 minutes of blather and palaver from the participants as we all tried to work out why the aliens keep NOT Rupturing us up to our promised Escape Vessels. Considering that this was the 14th time we've been let down, and technically the 16th year we've Drilled, the gathered SubGeniuses were pretty good sports about it. The louder participants include Dr. K'taden Legume, Dr. Hal, Papa Joe Mama, Princess Wei, and Rev. Susie the Floozie. Incidentally, this whole Drill was shot in 3D by a documentary crew, although their project is about SubGenius in general rather than just this festival.

After 16 shows derived from 14X-Day recordings, next week is our Traditional Xistlessnessmess Rerun, and then we move on to Starwood, a very different festival held in the very same place.
