JULY 2 - 8, "2012,"
Wisteria Event Campground,
about 20 minutes from Athens, Ohio
The Hour of Slack will be composed mainly of X-Day recordings until October or so. We captured many great performances, which is what I, Stang, am in this for.
This is THE SubGenius World Destruction Event and Annual Migration to our spawning grounds!
After 15 years of holding X-Day Drills at one place, last year we moved to a new venue, Wisteria. The old place changed; the new place is more like the old place used to be: NOT PINK.
As always, our annual main SubGenius event is held in the middle of nowhere, is hard to get to without a car or ride, and requires camping or else staying at a motel miles away. (Well, to be honest there's a Budget Host Coach Inn, WalMart and Kroger about 15 minutes away.)
Hey, if SubGeniuses were Normals, X-Day Drills and such would be held in motel conference rooms. Like the gamers do. Like the sci-fi fans and the comics fans do. Like the Scientologists, Mary Kay sales people and the Grace Glory Baptists do. Like the BOBBIES would most wish for.
But we are SubGeniuses, and X-Day is not a convention. IT IS AN ADVENTURE.
It might be brutal at times. CORRECTION: it WILL be brutal at times.
But those times are exactly what make for the CONTRAST. They make the heights ever so much HIGHER. And, sometimes, two SubGeniuses get stuck under a borrowed tarp in a rainstorm, and fall in love, and get married, and have kids, and get a divorce. BUT THEY STILL COME BACK TO X-DAY.
Sure. You might meet your True Yeti Mate or have your peak experience at a comics con in a motel. But it will not be an ADVENTURE. It will not be THE ETERNAL STRUGGLE OF MAN AGAINST NATURE, AGAINST THE VERY ELEMENTS, AGAINST, YES, GOD ITSELF!! JEHOVAH ONE! ARE WE TRULY BUT SPACE PUPPETS?!? NAY, "BOB" SAYS, NAY!!!"The brutal times form a protective barrier around all the SLACK at X-Day. You have to go through the brutality-field to get to the pure, rich, ambient slack that suffuses the event, but when you leave the Slack comes with you." -- Dok Holocaust, who later declared in exactly the wrong place that "All activists are just terrorists without weapons," and got chastised accordingly. For SUBGENIUS terrorists don't NEED weapons. The Word of "Bob" is weapon enough.
NEW: Here is the LATEST 2012 FAQ (WITH NEW PHOTOS) ABOUT 15 X-DAY, the WISTERIA CAMPSITE, nearby ATHENS, OHIO, and our answer to all BUTTHURTIAN RUMORS), assembled in May 2012 by Rev. Ivan Stang, Priestess Pisces, Dr. K'taden Legume and Princess Wei 'R.' Doe.

HOW MUCH??? Only $35. The cost is not very brutal. $35 for the whole week -- for ordained SubGenius Ministers. If you aren't ordained yet, you'll have to spend another $35 to become ordained. A CHEAP PRICE for SALVATION, if you think about it. Also a cheap price for ANY weekend-long, totally spectacular and weird campout -freakout-musical/religious event. You can register at the event (after 1 pm each day).
NOTE: CAMPING is another $12 per person, paid to Wisteria. There are motels nearby, in Athens, Pomeroy, Ravenswood WV, and Carpenter.

Wonderful souvenirs to cherish! -- Touching reminders of the last days of your life on planet Earth and your liberation by Dobbs. Shirts, hoodies, kids' clothes, mugs, steins, Liquid Frop Bottles, all emblazoned with the new X-Day art by Dr. Legume and/or this year's antique bug porn "squirrel shots.".
For the careless and CARLESS: HOW TO GET THERE
Priestess Pisces (main organizer) says: Greyhound will bring you right to Athens, Ohio, which is a mere spitting distance from Wisteria, and we can get a friendly Yeti to give you a ride in. For air travelers, Wisteria recommends the Port Columbus International Airport, and again, we have Friendly Yeti Volunteers making runs back and forth if you arrange it with Pisces. Train service in the area isn't as nice, however. You should also ask around on the 15X-Day Facebook Page, our various SubGenius Internet forums, the chat room and the RIDES BOARD.
Until June 29 YOU CAN CALL OUR TOLL-FREE NUMBER IF YOU HAVE SECURITY QUESTIONS:
1-888-669-2323 (if you leave your phone number on our message machine, do so S L O W L Y and CLEARLY).
You can become as involved as you want, way ahead of time, via

You'll be able to tell your great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandkids, "I was at the X-Day Final Gathering in legendary Wisteria... Yep! 'Fropped up with the great Dr. Legume hisself there... even fucked Connie Dobbs! And "Bob" fucked me -- right good, I'd say!"
"The X-Day house party and fin d'seacle freak show "parade" is something even the back-to-gabbers do, with a pumped up number of beats per minute, ten pils down your gob for 20 hours of chomping your bit, no ambience save for a couple of yellow cube lights haven't been able to kill.
"Also consider the fact that bouncing around on bad 'frop (probably Lunk, if nothing worse) or bad Church Air (probably jenkem, if nothing worse) is considered a definite no-no, never mind what you heard. And then, is it really your idea of fun to stand around some crossroads with no clue as to your whereabouts, with an Ohio map in hand which has snakes for roads crawling about, because you're hallucinating like an oilslide? Well then, simply get to know a few people first, which is not such a hard thing to do at X-Day Drill, and all kinds of possibilities will, if need be, arise by their own accord. In the meantime, remember: there's much more to be discovered!" - X-Day Guidebook (well actually from an Amsterdam guide book, but it works)
