The SubGenius Hour of Slack Podcast
The Church of the SubGenius Weekly Radio Ministry

A rerun of, get ready, Hour of Slack Number Three from October 1985. We had done only two prior shows in the crude KNON Dallas studio, and Stang was obviously still unfamiliar with the equipment. The amazing things about this episode are the special guests: three of the key early SubGenius Doktors were all somehow in Dallas that week. We had just done the Scary Ball Devival at the Twilight Room with Drs. 4 Bob. The oldest known SubGenius, Dr. G. Gordon Gordon had come for that... from BRAZIL. The normal-age Dr. Gary G'broagfran was there from Berkeley, and the then youngest SubGenius, Dr. Onan Canobite had come from Knoxville Tennessee. We ALL sound like BABIES. Miraculous! -- that everyone on that recording is still alive. PROOF OF "BOB" right there, my fellow prayer partners. Or... payer partners.

RADIO-SAFE VERSION of Better Living Through Confirmation Bias! CULT OF ZIR rears its ugly head, as does the thing they call Sheridan. And lots of other new stuff -- some by new old people, some by old new people. ALL-SUBGENIUS! A new Onan rant stabs through some membranes of ESO Swamp Radio with Chas and Dave, but only makes them stronger. LeMur tries so very hard to help provide consistency (!), but fails, and the hammer of a band-thing called THUNK! makes an impression -- IN YOUR SKULL! We honestly don't know who did the song that ends the episode, ""Bob" Pokes Me In the Eye with Love."

Lonesome Cowboy Dave joined us for a whole hour -- from his hospital bed! And we thought he sounded more lively and snappy than before he got sick! LeMur did the titles but after that it's talk, talk, talk! Subject matters: The devil in your swimming pool. Dave's "home" in this sick, sick world. Buddy gets baked. Buddy's O.D. Can't Leave the Room. Spanish Fly Flu. Real world now like Neighborworld but with Zooming instead of Luming. Ask Dr. Hal on Zoom. Charlie Chaplin and the Red Scare. Repuiblicans now believe the Russian propaganda that says Democrats are Bad Commies. (Russians being white after all.) Plastic toy scuba divers then and now. Melting the whole bag of Army men. Gilbert's Chemistry Set experiments in invisibility. 1950s American "ladies." Mom's underpants and the mystery objects in parents' bathroom. Stang's parents were celibate. Crimes of pigmentation in Louisiana. Fake Antifa ads. Our escape routes for when the Black Helicopters come to take us to Trumpstop. Stang's Victory Garden and the tabasco pepper accident. The Norwegian Subs complained that they had no cod and we don't even have water. Skinjobs are people too. Dustin Hoffman doesn't need make-up any more to play Littl Big Man! Dick Smith, Doug Smith, Dick Titley, Fonda Dix, Fonda Peter. Ren-Faire don't care. Been distancing our whole lives, and wearing mask -- of normality. Masks and women. The Miami Vice Stubble. Dave's tracker-phone. Firesign Theatre nice guys and when Dave met Al Pacino. Stang's Italian DNA surprise. Walkers of every kind. Sudden show End.

The Internet version is RADIO-SAFE but longer than an hour.

New Worst-Of 2020 X-Day rants and Old Best-Of Dave spoutings slam against each other, with just barely enough 1980s Oingo Boingo songs to grease the friction and prevent the prophesied FUTURE-COVID burn-out infection avalanche! IT'S OUR ONLY HOPE! We had to do it! No choice! Seriously! It was THAT BAD! We were forced to resort to the only staunching techniques available to us in that desperate time, and we stand by our decision. Our, yes, MORTAL decision. Praise "Bob." NOTE: This episode is all, miraculously, radio-safe.
