It's a great episode of "Bob's" Slacktime Fun House from WREK-Atlanta, and it's the kind of incredible collage tour-de-force that we're all coming to expect, and hear, from Rev. Susie the Floozie. Is there such thing as coming too hard to hear something? FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF with this astounding collision of everything end-of-the-world and UFO, badsongs especially. You'll also hear some classic snake-oil selling and UFO-contactee blithering. It's like the whole "New Age" packed into one hour. You'll puke with joy at how stupid humans show themselves to be! -- even when compared to SubGeniuses.

LOG of THIS EPISODE:
It begins with a parody of a WREK staple, the EARTH & SKY bit--then
grab yer ankles, because this is a preview of what's in store for us
all in just a few short weeks! Our off-planet future is deliciously
delineated by a stellar host of luminaries, including...
The ever-swinging Frank Sinatra!
Donovan and his "Intergalactic Laxative"!
A lyrical, goosebump-inducing soprano song "Someday I'll Walk among
the Stars" from UP WITH PEOPLE, of all places--a song that will
finally wipe that goddamned horrible "Gimme God Blues" song out of my
head from three weeks ago!
A kids' album version of STAR TREK narrated by an old guy who sounds
like he's wearing dentures!
A bit of that addled dingbat Uriel and her mushmouthed "Greens,
Crazy redneck abductees sitting around the trailer explaining to a too-
sympathetic interviewer exactly WHAT the aliens are doing with all
those inbred love children they've harvested from hillbilly ova!
And two songs by The Tinklers--one of which, titled "Randy," is the
most heartbreakingly accurate testament of what cosmic deliverance
means to the typical teenaged SubGenius: "I'm not from here, I'm from
YES, SEEKERS! It's time to start thinking HARD about it--because EVERYDAY BRINGS US CLOSER TO X-DAY!!!
