SUBGENIUS PARTY - AUGUST 23 - LEIPZIG, GERMANY

at the SISHABAR WUNDERLAMPE
Eisenbahnstr. 98, Leipzig

This is not a devival per se, just an open party hosted by Rev. Bucky Argyle, Princess Pimpelmee, Rev. Ivan Stang and Princess Wei, for SubGenius minsisters, especially our new/old buddies from previous EuroX-Days and devivals. Stang & Doe will be in Germany for 2 weeks and plan mainly to hang out. No big "show," just Slack.

SUBGENIUS FAMILY VACATION 2011-2012 PHOTOS

We wouldn't recommend this to anybody/everybody, but there's a best-of at the start, and we've been referring to this stuff on Hour of Slack a lot lately, so, what the hell. Please read the instructions before committing yourself to anything. But if you like weird-looking rocks, or people, parts of this may be like porno for some.

Preachers, Bands: The Amino Acids, Priestess Pisces, Rev. Angry Larry, John Deere Tractor Beam, Jehovah's Witness Protection Program, DJ 2B, Unidentified Drunken Injury, Coffin Feeder, Karmic Lava, Freak Ache, Songs from the Moon, Tell All Your Friends, Three Hives, John Davies Problem, and actually more!

June 29 to July 5, 7 a.m., 2011:

XIV X-DAY 2011

HAPPENED -- in fact it happened the HELL out of it -- at a great new campground: Wisteria, near Athens, Ohio!

SEE OUR EXTREMELY DETAILED ADULTS-ONLY 14X-DAY PHOTO-AUDIO-REPORT PAGES

as well as last August's episodes of THE HOUR OF SLACK

Important Message from The SubGenius Foundation & Dr. K'taden Legume:

Friends, there are many paths to slack. You might fly your own aeroplane, or play your grand piano. You may get slack from drinking or whoring or bellyboarding down a mountain of crack; screwing your sister in the ass or playing pinochle with drag queens.

But NONE of these paths lead to slack without "BOB" by your side.

X-Day is still coming, dear friends! The WEASELS of PINKNESS are creeping out of the night to try to steal J.R."Bob" Dobbs' chickens, but "Bob" ain't gonna let em', and NEITHER SHOULD YOU!

If anyone or anything besides THIS PAGE tells you there's a devival ANYWHERE ELSE, especially certain false, defrocked "Popes" -- or, even worse, anybody claiming to be "Bob" Dobbs himself -- DO NOT BELIEVE THEM. These are NOT approved by Dobbs in ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM; these are PINK WEASEL CIRCLE-JERKS run by BACK-STABBING PINK PRETENDERS whose presence "Bob" will refuse to allow on the saucers NO MATTER HOW MUCH THEY MIGHT PAY!

ACCEPT NO SUBSTITUTES! USE ONLY DOBBS-APPROVED PRODUCTS AND SERVICES!

Illustration above: "Wrath of the Uberfemme" by Rev. Frodis "Suds" Pshaw (after a photo of Priestess Pisces)

PREACHING: Rev. Ivan Stang * Rev. Susie the Floozy * Rev. Carter LeBlanc * Priestess Pisces!

MUSIC BY: THE AMINO ACIDS * FAT FREE * THE MOTOR MORONS * and THE VERSIFICATORS

See the Photo-Illustrated Report on last year's Baltimore Devival!

We posted a few of last year's highlights to Google Video.This clip features the infamous Dr. K'taden Legume at the pulpit. Jenkem is referenced. In this clip, Rev. Carter LeBlanc deliniates the impact of Pinkness on the U.S. economy. Here, devival cohost Priestess Pisces shares a poignant parable about the Bobbie. You can see Rev. Susie the Floozy deliver her rant, but you can't see the audience melting or hardening in adoration. In this raw shaky-cam footage, the musicians from out of space called The Amino Acids perform their entire "set" (except during a camera roll change) and close the devival by very nearly destroying themselves. Rev. Ivan Stang herein presents the sermon known as "SubGenius 101," which covers "Bob," Slack and The Conspiracy for the uninitiated.
