This is truly an old-school "Bob"-centric episode: SubGenius "back-to-the-Pamphlet" fundamentalism, with everything from the oldest Glassmadness Dobbs hymns to more recent Dobbsedelia by LeMur and Einstein's Secret Orchestra. Well, recent by Church History standards; this rerun is from 2004. Includes Stang rants, Heart Ignition, Norel Pref, Lonesome Cowboy Dave, Nenslo, Zappa, nu-monet and the one-man band, MAN (now "Man, Incorporated.") A mouldin' oldie, in other words, yet as fresh today as it was in 2004, give or take 8 years or so.

What are the holidays without reruns? This is the hoary old annual traditional Xmas Re-Rerun of #867 (& 921 and 1026, 1077, 1129, 1236 and 1338), which was itself a condensation of some ancient year's 3-show "Best of Xmas Sickness" compilation, which were themselves the concentrated best-of from 15 years' worth of previous Xmas SubGenius and other Xmas weirdo collections. Includes over 66 separate tracks/songs/bits! And no, not one bit has been changed in all these years.

This live episode is largely centered around two subjects: songs about stupidity, and the Maya prophecy of the world ending on Dec. 21, 2012. The music includes The Rudy Schwartz Project, Jonathan Coulton, Wei's new "discovery" Ted Ganger, and even ZZ Top! LeMur and The Large collages round it out. As usual, the live parts with StangDoe and LoneCow Dave are all over the place, but there's much discussion of the Maya in general and the famous prophecy, including Stang reading from IN THE COURT OF THE SUN and THE SACRIFICE GAME by Brian D'Amato (HIGHLY recommended black-humor historical science fiction). Also: the tragic end of The Onion mailing print copies to subscribers signals potential mass killings at Post Offices. The Internet version of this show includes an extra 8 minutes of StangDoe chatting with Dr. Sinister while waiting for him to take over the controls and start his show, Radio Synesthesia.
