Interspersed with Lemurian collages, two Onan Canobite rants read by Stang, and music by The Rudy Schwartz Project, The Slot Rods, Rev. Watt de Falk and The Psycho Skeletons, most of this is a lively conversation between Dr. Hal, Dr. Philo Drummond, Lord Angry Larry, and Rev. Ivan Stang from the second hour of the July 4, "2019" show at 22X-Day, recorded live in front of an audience. A SMALL audience, but hey. It's still live and lively. There is much discussion of Bible movies versus Bible books, especially the story of Noah's Ark. Later, Stang unfortunately attempts to preview the pop rock pot rot dog X-Day opera he and Wei have written, "BUDDY." (With apologies to Pete Townsend.)

What are the holidays without Slack and reruns? Sappy, nostalgia-provoking reruns on TV are what Christmas is all about, right? Plus, it gives us a break. This is the hoary old annual traditional Xmas Re-Rerun of #867 (and 921 and 1026, 1077, 1129, 1236, 1338, 1497, 1549, 1602, 1654, 1705 etc.), 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, going back to the show's beginning in 1985 at KNON, Dallas. Includes over 66 separate tracks/songs/bits! And no, not one bit has been changed in all these years. Now that's Slack!

This is one of those mash-ups of three very different live SubGenius shows and a bunch of weird music and nicely tortured noises. There's also an actual new 10-minute Written Stang Rant, "Sorry, Non-Boomer" (albeit only partially written by Stang), which reveals "Bob's" revised SubGenius slogans for older SubGeniuses. We premiere two GREAT new songs from The Rudy Schwartz Project, including the brainworm "Dead Nazi by the Side of the Road" as well as a new Slot Rods/Angry Larry surfpunk thrashstramental. It's the Battle of the Buzz with Lonesome Cowboy Dave calling in and making his own reality, intercut with a 22X-Day session with the Puzzling Evidence Show stalwarts, Dr. Hal and Philo Drummond (minus Puzzling Evidence himself). We also hear a strange stretch with Philo and Hal with the mysterious SubGenius called "X." Collage work by Lemur and RastaBilly Bob round out the rough edges, or perhaps roughen up the smooth edges. The performance name "M.C. Squaredance" is copyright 2019 Ivan Stang. Patent pending.

A very old-school fundie doctrinal episode, since it's Dr. Philo Drummond, Dr. Hal, Rev. Ivan Stang and Rev. Angry Larry -- all ancient and revered Hierarchites, spouting sacredly at 22X-Day Drill on July 4th, in the first hour of the first show... and, there's a brand new Rudy Schwartz Project album out! Music includes three challenging songs from that, some Slot Rods alien surf punk thrash e-z listening, Jimmy Durante, Skeletons of the Psycho variety, and LeMurian antimusic. Topics attacked: pils; the ban on cotton; the visor that reveals dinosaur ghosts; fat cocks and no chicks; idiot Facebook Bobbies who can't spell "Bob"; Tube Bar Call imitations; toe jam used as butt paste; Dr. Hal jumped off a cliff for a dollar; the supervillain Irritating Grandpa, other pressing topical issues.

The "live" part is from the third show of the second day of 22X-Day. The panel starts with Stang, Drummond and Dr. Hal, but new radio spouters Mistar Sistar and Rev. Crimsoniculous replace Stang and Drummond, creating a unique ambience even for SubGenius shows. Interspersed are collages by LeMur and music by X-Day regulars Andrew the Impaled (working with full band The Liberty Tubes) and The Slot Rods (Rev. Angry Larry), plus new pieces by Rev. Jimmy Ryan, Massive Hotdog Recall (Al Mothersbaugh et al), and The Psycho Skeletons.
