Stang NASAL IRRIGATION spouting (so to speak -- nobody around here will listen to me describe in detail what it's like to "irrigate the sinus cavity" with salt water after a deviated-septum operation, so I made the listeners hear it.

Credits and PO boxes
ESO 8-18-98 -- "Stump Men and the End of Golfer Head Launching," "Liquid Vs. Solid Fuel Propelled Body Parts (vs. COLLOIDAL Fuel Launched ones)", "Built by Union Gremlins," Great "ANTI-WAR" Peacenic version of "SUBGENIUS LULLABY" (tearjerker song).
REPEAT: "BUILT BY UNION GREMLINS." I want credit for that one.
Have some of you SubGeniuses noticed how little slogans you or Dobbs came up with, end up in other peoples' sig files, and then a year later you see 'em on bumper stickers sold at gun shows or truck stops? Has that happened to you? I have noticed that happening a LOT lately.
"RULES" -- NEW BILL T. MILLER "KINGS OF FEEDBACK" CD just OUT!
For fans of BIG GUITAR, BADFILM CLIP COLLAGE and DENSE PSYCHEDELIC SAMPLING MIXELLRY, this is BTM's GREATEST YET!! I can tell this will be this month's ShorDurPerSav, played-to-death-until-you're-sick-of-it-but-just-can't-stop album. I found this in the stack of mail just AFTER doing this week's HOUR OF SLACK, but that just means that I'll have my favorite songs picked out by next week.
I have spent HOURS IN HEADPHONES, on and off STRONG DRUGS listening to Bill's mixes. KINGS OF FEEDBACK isn't just Bill Miller, it's an actual band with several other people, but even if he isn't singing, each piece has that unmistakeable BTM stylistic signature that comes from deep within the heart of rock and roll.
AND YOU CAN DANCE TO IT!! It's the greatest techniques discovered by accident during antimusic explorations, brought into the service of actual linear music with melodies and a beat! AMAZING BUT TRUE! Totally mutated and futuristic, and yet some of these songs, you could swear you were listening to some insane 1967 acid rock band whose guitarist JUST THAT NIGHT got his first newly-invented FUZZ BOX.
So far my favorite songs are all in a row near the end: WANK MY WHAMMY (sexhurt-drenched), TV ADDICT, IT'S MY LIFE (a retro psycho masterpiece), HOOK ME UP.
KINGS OF FEEDBACK RULES!!! FOLLOW THEM! FOLLOW THE KINGS OF FEEDBACK RULES!
At the end, Bill has included a SHITLOAD of his ORGY OF NOISE collage experiments, which are best described as "Early Negativland-ish", i.e., audio animation a la A BIG 10-8 PLACE. "Bonus Cut 22" is a wonderful media barrage about the Internet and nerd-dom, a geek anthem.
GO FOR IT!!! If you've never heard BTM/KoF/OBE before, we're STILL ON EARTH and it's not too late! The King of Slack was Ruptured, but PRAISE "BOB" that Bill T. Miller didn't go with him!
