Hour of Slack #1576 - 19X-Day Begins with Dr. Howll

DAMN IT! Stang forgot to credit Rev. Walter Cosmac for the collage at the very beginning, and we don't have time to add that audio because the world is about to end and (though this makes no sense) we're rushing around trying to get all loose ends tied up before July 5. The big celebration at the remote secret campground being immanent, we flew in the illustrious and erudite Dr. Hal Robins or Dr. Howll to preside over this final broadcast. (In fact this is the first of a three hour broadcast from WCSB that lapped over into Dr. Sinister's two-hour show after The Hour of Slack. Those hours will be available later, albeit not on Earth Farm One for much longer.) An operatic song by Xposed 4heads, "Hot Aliens," is a perfect opening anthem for X-Day. Then Dr. Hal is introduced, Lonesome Cowboy Dave phones in, Princess Wei starts glowing, and the end game is afoot. We haven't had time to listen back to it so that's really all we know at this writing except that the show ends with The Rudy Schwartz Project covering the Swinging Love Corpses classic, "Pick a Booger." Thanks for all the Slack, and see you on The Saucers.

Hour of Slack #1575 - Walkers for Trump

This was one talkative episode! The music at the beginning includes excellent brand new pieces by David Morrison and Pilgrim Speakeasy, and there's an RSP dingleberry at the end. In between it's nonstop banter, blather and ranting as we gear up for both X-Day/Starwood and the Inevitable Mass Trump Slapdown that we suspect is finally brewing. The problems of Facebook and "real" names comes up. The Romero-based Living Dead movies and the Walking Dead show as metaphors for the Dumbing of America are explored, painfully. Lonesome Cowboy Dave expresses his dislike of superheroes. Stang gets possessed by that redneck wingnut demon again.

Hour of Slack #1574 - The Buzzard in the Coal Mine

There's a new, all-original CD out by The Rudy Schwartz Project, and we haven't even The opening clip of dialog from HAIL CAESAR will make you want to see the movie, and is followed by "Pop That Bulbous Scrotum," one of FOUR new Rudy Schwartz Projects songs (of which "Ted Cruz's Mouth" is not on the radio version). We have two different Trump Blather mashups, one by Rev. Cuttlefish and one by Rev. Phineas Narco. Xposed 4Heads are again exposed with the song "Generica." Then it's live in the studio with Lonesome Cowboy Dave on the phone and Stang & Wei trying to make sense of it, some. Stang reads a report texted in that afternoon by Dr. K'taden Legume regarding a very revealing experience he had on "Amazon Island." This leads into a discussion, sometimes heated, of Moral Outrage Addicts on Facebook, a type that seems to be growing and was in furious bloom that particular weekend. The Internet and especially Facebook's role in the dumbing of America are tied to the rise of the PROUD TO BE STUPID or "revenge of the caveman" mood of the country.

If you (like we did) wonder what "real first President museum" Dave was talking about at the beginning, Here's a funny article about it

Hour of Slack #1573 - They Saved Grandpa's Gauze Pt. 1

There's a new, all-original CD out by The Rudy Schwartz Project, and we haven't even played everything off the last RSP album ("Sunshine Supershits," a collection of covers). So we're playing the first half of this brilliant bulldada rock opera of an album for the first half of the show. Tighten down your grommets for it! There is also a great new song by Xposed 4Heads. After that we get The Call from Lonesome Cowboy Dave. Topics of discussion include: "Bob" and Reagan. The blowhole of America, Moby Dick and monster hunt legends as the basis of literature. The Sensitive Bone vs. The Funny Bone. Pyroflatulation. Dave's parasitic twin. The Drs. 4 Wotan Audience Replacement technique. Fossil ghost tracks at Stang Ranch. Wei downloads a Fart Piano and we sing a song about Ranch Style Beans.
