Hour of Slack #1315 - Live 6-26: X-Day Approacheth -- THE FINAL MOMENTS, Dr. Hal Vs. Lonesome Cowboy Dave
Dr. Hal of The Ask Dr. Hal Show and Puzzling Evidence joins us live in the studios of WCSB Cleveland for one last farewell to the planet. . . although we did another 2 hours on Radio Synaesthesia, immediately following this hour, which will comrpise the next two Hour of Slack episodes, probably. Cast of this intense episode: Rev. Ivan Stang, Dr. Hal, Lonesome Cowboy Dave, Princess Wei, and Dr. Sinister. Frankly it is mostly Hal and Dave. Imagine trying to keep up with those two. Considering the deadline -- leaving the the planet in a few days, or at worst overseeing two week-long festivals -- this was by far the easiest show I, Stang, have ever done. Mainly I just watched the volumes and let the two masters have at it.

This episode is half-live (with a short half-life) with Stang/Doe and Lonesome Cowboy Dave covering many subjects, especially the weirder aspects of the upcoming SubGenius festivals (and of Dave). A quarter of it is new collages from Ministry of Slack, The Large and others; and the first quarter is Stang's reading of the finale of "The Agent and Mr. Dobbs" by Rev. Teeters LeVerge. We somehow managed to fit in yet ANOTHER quarter of a show featuring ACTUAL RECORDINGS of Connie Dobbs herself, and some more rare Firesign Theatre, also from the olden days.

Hour of Slack #1313 -- Ministry of Slack, Agent & Dobbs Part 6, Phineas Narco Vs. Puzzling Evidence, Satan Vs. Jesus, Old Testament Dad-Sex
The title pretty much says it all. X-Day is approaching swiftly and we're trying to tie up all loose ends before the Earth cacks it. "The Agent and Mr. Dobbs" reading is almost finished, some excellent collages and teachings from The Ministry of Slack' recent best-of collection, and some choice bits of both Puzzling Evidence (with guest Phineas Narco) and prehistoric Firesign Theatre) make this episode mostly spoken-word. Exceptions are a new cut by St. Byron Werner's new band Mockingbird and a VERY short on from 14 X-Day guests Zero-Defects.

In this show we continue to dredge the past for The Rudy Schwartz Project, also King of Slack Bill T. Miller, but mostly we hover around 9X-Day for the great sermon by Rev. Pee Kitty, more of Ask Dr. Hal, and some intriguing reminiscences from Dr. Hal regarding both 9X-Day and Burning Man 2006, from which he had just returned.

Wei and Stang have been on the road, plotting 14X-Day festivities at Wisteria campground with its managers, which gives us the perfect excuse to play the perfect rerun: Rev. Susie’s stupefyingly hypnotic yet terrifying and hilarious uber-collage of source materials all pointing at the inevitable End of the World, X-Day, July 5, as prophesied by “Bob.” It is unlike ANY “normal” Hour of Slack and even weirder than most Susie collage shows. We dare you to identify EVERY source before she identifies them all at the very end.
