Except for some old Puzzling Evidence short clips that Wei found by MAGIC, and the ending rant, this episode (and 3 more you may never hear) was edited two weeks ago. But ONE week ago I realized that tragedy had already long since struck -- my eyes were finally opened by my bank account being shut. In true desperation I tacked on the ending rant. It is entirely serious and explains our situation. Long story short: we're worse, WAY worse, than just broke. (By "broke," for those who STILL don't get it, I mean FINANCIALLY broke -- deep in debt.) I didn't understand how bad the situation really was until I started asking for help online last week, and got lots of nice words, and some very nasty words, but mostly got ignored. Worse, some "SubGeniuses" razzed the more helpful ones for even suggesting that The SubGenius Foundation SELL THINGS. Uh… is the the church I thought it was? Did somebody pull a switcheroo? I had to ask myself: WHAT WOULD "BOB" DO? This is our next-to last-chance cry for help: FINANCIAL HELP -- not words of thanks, as DESPERATELY NEEDED as those were, and as much as I personally appreciate what we DID get along those lines. Actually there is one more step we can take if this extreme measure doesn't work. It's a step that only "Bob" himself would dare take.
For, next, unfortunately for many, many GimmeBobs, comes the SELLING. The uncontrollable rabid part that we kept chained as long as we possibly could.
Aside from all that, until you get to the ending, this is a really hilarious and/or inspiring episode! It is dedicated to Dr. Dark, Rev. Louie Louie, WEFT, WQFS, Rob Szarka of WCNI, Wei, Pisces, Suds, Legume and Nickie, all of the SubGeniuses who helped before I even began begging.

There's a new album out from The Rudy Schwartz Project!! -- and we start playing songs from it on this show. We also have music from: Little Jack Melody and His Young Turks; The Duke of Uke; Boron Nuzzle; The Evolution Control Committee (and a jam by them and Ministry of Slack/Slanderbob); Rev. Jannus Blackseed; St. Andrew the Impaled; The Rainmakers; and whatever else is buried in ECC and the collages, which are largely by The Large. Most of this was recorded at 14 X-Day Drill and includes some of I, Stang and Dr. Hal discussing the bands themselves, and adventures with other bands such as Gwar.

The show starts with Part One of Rev. Frodis Pshaw's 3-part bio-rant and ends with a great Papa Joe Mama head-launching and sermon. In between we intersperse recordings from the actual Naked Bobtisms at the Wisteria pond and discussions of same that led up to it from various live Hours of Slack recorded at Wisteria with Dr. Hal, Papa Joe Mama, I, Stang, Priestess Pisces and Princess Wei. You'll get to HEAR lots of naked girls and men. Photos are on our website, although Wei was the only person (besides the 3D film crew) allowed to shoot, and she only shot peckers and butts, deliberately hiding the titties from me and everyone else, leaving only memories.

Hour of Slack #1325 - 14X-Day 8: Pure Live Hour of Slack from Wisteria Stage with Dr. Hal, Papa Joe, Stang/Doe
This is the live on-stage Hour of Slack from Sunday, July 3 at the Wisteria café -- the first hour, anyway. After some media barrages it gets off to a somewhat slow start, as Dr. Hal and Papa Joe were both distracted and "multitasking" at first, leaving Princess Wei and I, Stang to, well, sing something horrible. Then it picks up steam as the other participants become more involved. I, Stang read from several key documents by other SubGeniuses. Nenslo's classic song "Take Me Off to Space" ends the episode. There was another half hour recorded that day, but we'll have to put that on an "X-Rated Internet-Only" show, as it involves some Dr. Legume Story Time. My personal favorite aspect of this episode is how much time it saved me for other SubGenius projects. I only had to cut a few cusswords for the radio stations, and there was none of the intense volume-twiddling and filter-rendering that goes with the 50-track "variety" episodes. Plus, let's face it, Dr. Hal and Papa Joe are god damned geniuses. Were it not for their Divine Follies we'd have to disqualify them from this particular religion. And it's a damn shame that Lonesome Cowboy Dave couldn't be there. Next week: The Naked Bobtism documentary.
