Hour of Slack #1481 - Mass Wisteria

We had a great two weeks in Germany, but our gripping report on that will have to wait until next week. This is the second of two shows from July 2, recorded before a live audience in Caffeina's café at the Wisteria campground, with Dr. Hal, Rev. Baby Bear, Rev. Richard Skull, Princess Wei 'R.' Doe and Rev. Stang.

Hour of Slack #1480 - The Search for Snuckles

Dr. Hal, Rev. Baby Bear and Rev. Stang recored this show before a live audience in Caffeina's café at the Wisteria campground, the first of two shows on July 2. The discussion goes all over the place, but especially notable are what we now know to have been the opening salvos in a bloody and tragic mystery that unfolded during the week of the 17X-Day Drill. The disappearance of the obnoxious dog "Snuckles" was only the beginning. Other topics: Genius Vs. SubGenius. "Bob's" second childhood. Slack Altars and Recalcitrant Spouses. Surfing the Luck Plane. Kaspar Hauser. Toilet training with "Bob." Stang's grandchildren are heard for the first time in this episode.

Hour of Slack #1479 - A Flagrant State of Mind

The previous week's live Hour of Slack on WCSB Cleveland was painfully extended for an extra half hour, due to a late DJ; likewise, at 17 X-Day, we had on July 1 recorded a show that, despite being performed in front of a live audience, contained many utterances which for various excellent reasons must be censored TO SAVE YOU. This, then, is a mish-mash of an accidental WCSB live show featuring guest Lonesome Cowboy Dave with a campground-recorded 17X-Day show that was too "inside" for public or pubic consumption. The show recorded at Wisteria featured Dr. Hal and Priestess Pisces along with parasite-host Rev. Ivan Stang. Between the two half-shows, pretty much everything is covered, topic-wise. This show is being released a week early because Stang & Doe are soon taking two weeks off. Way off. If no new shows are posted until Sept. 1, it's because we were already caught up; we've been posting more than one show a week since 17X-Day.
