It's StangDoe, Dr. Hal and a smattering of Philo for an entire hour! -- from 22 X-Day, second show, July 2 "2019."
A bit of old Media Barrage leads to discussions of: Cornstarch and St. Ken Kesey aka Rev. Hardly Visible. Tiny Andy Warhol vs. Jim Long at the 1970 USA Film Festival. Michael Peppe's clumsiness and brilliance such as BehaviorMusic. The smell of old and new movie film. Texas climate control. Pappy's timing. Why no X-Day at Stang Ranch: copperheads, knuckleheads, Dobbsheads - but no Gila Monsters. Horny Toads! Stang's DNA test. The World is ending - moon collapsing -- the underwater ocean and "Ark" and "Waterworld." Legume stopped hating. That's what people do. When the Internet came along - became TV. "A Boy and His Dog." All we talk about is monsters. Plastic lichen pollution, valium in the water, suicidal amoebas, living dead rotifers!! Science News: a new End of the World every five minutes. The One-Hoss Shay. It's hopeless! When Stang spent that $35. Sexism in the early Church. Those born rich can afford to be stupid. Stang's ignorance about all the new sexes and the special names for each.

We managed to get through this (probably) last truly live broadcast from WCSB without crying or even getting sappy like we did a couple of shows back. At first there's a new Liberty Tubes song, an amazing rock-n-roll mash-up by Dido (?), and ten minutes of a funny 2017 X-Day podcrust with Revs. Shoggoth, Peas and Eggplant. Then Dr. Sinister joins StangDoe and the Lonesome Cowboy for, after twenty years, one final bout of live jibber-jabber using WCSB's excellent microphones, headphones, and phone-caller audio. (Our home studio at Stang Ranch is a bit less professionally appointed.) There are some thank-yous, some reminiscing about the more freakish frequent WCSB callers, some secrets revealed, the usual sudden tangents into twisted versions of current events, science, and ancient history, killer clowns, momos, and some philosophizing from Stang regarding his recent indignities of aging and how they've slowed the final epic move of sacred SubGenius crap from Cleveland to the secure rural Texas compound (an hour from Waco! Heh!). The show ends with a recording of "SubGenius Lullaby" from Chas Smith's old ESO show on the station, which is probably a real tear-jerker for long-time listeners.

Doe talk and talk and talk with various callers. Because it's the penultimate WCSB show for Hour of Slack, there is some reminiscing of vast historical significance, and much detailed revelations about "Bob" Dobbs and his Word.
