Praise "Bob," for here we have a truly all-purpose, no-theme/all-themes salad of SubGenius sources. We've been in reruns or live shows for so long that quite a nice stack of short clips by beloved Church of the SubGenius Audio Soldiers has piled up. This episode scavenges from Radio Synesthesia (Cleveland) and Puzzling Evidence (Berkeley), with collages from our favorite insane clip editors keeping the two SubGenius shows far enough apart that they won't squabble and get into fights. One solitary oldie, a gospel song by Rev. Onan Canobite, is the sole anchor to familiarity.

After a 15 minute collage of collages that will make you feel like you're on serious hallucinogens, you'll be brought down to earth, and then a lot farther down, by a particularly meandering and burbling live show with Rev. Stang and Princess Wei in the WCSB studio, and Lonesome Cowboy Dave on the phone. The fake Star Trek spoilers are just the beginning. "Let's mince words and torture them until they talk! Waterboard them till they SPILL!"

This week we go even further back in time, to last century, with a rerun of Hour of Slack # 257, which was broadcast in 1990 and happened to be our FIVE YEARS ANNIVERSARY SHOW. The online SubGenius History and Cult-Management class is still running at Robert Anton Wilson's Maybe Logic Academy, maybelogic.net, so reruns are appropriate and necessary. Don't worry, we'll drag Lonesome Cowboy Dave and ourselves back into the studio soon. Meanwhile, you get to hear what the show was like in the olden times of the last millenium, when we actually wrote scripts for our rantings. This episode also features some pieces, especially one by Joe Paulino, that have become true classics in retrospect. We also get to hear Puzzling Evidence broadcasts from KPFA that are so old that St. Palmer Vreedeez, also known as LIES, was a regular. And near the end of this show is a lecture about current so-called Modern Man, delivered by a FUTURE man, Homo Correctus.

We have indeed gone BACK IN TIME again. This is a rerun of Episode #276, from 1991. We're in Week 5 of the 8-week SubGenius History/How to Run Your Own Cult online class at MaybeLogic Academy, hence the reruns. Also, the Conspiracy has been keeping Dave from getting to the station. But these old shows have their own special charm. For instance, the George Bush you'll hear us refer to in this is actually the FIRST one -- not the relatively recent George Bush with the war, but an older one, with a slightly different war.
