HOUR OF SLACK 595 and Church HQ News

To begin with, the previous show, #594, was valiantly slung together by Jesus while I was out of town. I have no "log" of that show and have not even heard most of it, although what I have heard so far is certainly LOUD. The Lord learned the hard way that while ol' Rev. Stang's techno-mixing set-up may seem TOTALLY INSANE AND UNWORKABLE at first glance, it is in fact the ONLY WAY to make all the semi-broken equipment work. It is the nature of The SubGenius Foundation that all the tools we own are partially broken, such that they work FINE, IF YOU KNOW THE TRICK. We have had to come up with many such tricks... but it saves on repair bills.

I spent the last week and a half driving with my son, Ydnax, to New York City to help him move into his college dorm. On the trip up, he had to listen to my choice of audio tapes, since he only has CDs. I'm happy to report that he really liked Bill Hicks, Joe Auffricht, and all the prank call tapes. Sadly, he still hates Zappa, Beefheart and Hendrix. But at least he's honest about his taste -- he asked if I had ANY "sold-out corporate rock." He actually called it that. He meant things like R.E.M. and U-2, or whatnot. The closest thing I had was Soundgarden and Sublime. Sublime barely counts, since the singer from that band was a SubGenius, and died before he made any money off his band.

Dr. Legume -- who got online YESTERDAY with the DONATED COMPUTER he got -- let us stay with him and Mrs. Legume, and helped us move the lad in. Ydnax's dorm room-mate was exposed to Dr. Legume and me for about an hour.

I am JEALOUS of Ydnax. He now lives in one of the fanciest neighborhoods on the planet -- and he and his roomie are THE ONLY MALES ON THAT FLOOR in his dorm!

I don't want to give out the name of the college, because then Friday Jones might get to him.

I took advantage of being up North to sell swag at an outdoor Hawkwind concert at Brushwood in Sherman, NY, and to do radio at WMUH in Philadelphia (on Rev. Ed Strange's show, with Dr. Legume) and at WCSB in Cleveland with Einstein's Secret Orchestra, Lonesome Cowboy Dave, Chas Smith and Princess Wei R. Doe. The radio sessions were productive, and between those and some other tapes I recently acquired, I should be able to crank out at least 4 all-new-new-new Hours of Slack.

It only now occurs to me that I could have alerted Internet SubGenius fanatics about that WCSB show -- the station has a continuous AudioActive stream running, so you can always here it live and quite clearly over the Net. Praise be to Wandarer, we'll have the Hour of Slack versions running in RealAudio pretty soon.
