(GOOD) The Morlocks (us) vs. the Eloi (them). X-DAY rant, builds up to impromptu "Stang's First Day on the Escape Vessels" "skit," Stang meets Elvis, Lenny Bruce on his Escape Vessel, then becomes bored with Escape Vessels after about 4 hours of all wishes being granted, then LCDave shows up and forces Stang to realize that things have been going horribly wrong aboard the Escape Vessels...

(/Side 3:) ((THIS WHOLE SIDE IS SIDE ONE OF HOUR OF SLACK 553))
Princess Wei sings "BLIND PIG" w/ ESO musical backup... SPOOKY
Stang sleazes up to various Dave/Wei characters, selling BUG PORN PICS for $1... BUG PORNO riffs. "Here's a cockroach being eaten by a Wolf Spider Wasp... look at him just chewin' away..." Wimp Cop Dave's investigation of the Bug Porno Ring while Chas sings "Death of a Fly," ad for Columbus show; homeless Dave tries to bum money from Stang, who blows him off calously; then the Dave-voice of Stang's conscience tries to make him feel bad about scorning the homeless bums. Stang decides to go back and kill, recycle the bum, but dies in drunken car wreck after robbing convenience store on the way (also prompted by voice of conscience). Stang monolog on his own cruelty and cynical callousness, kisses up to the Masons, Circle of Ten, Con. Stang is inducted into the Conspiracy, meets with the Circle of 10 Rockefeller/ CIA/ corporuler board, but informed he owes ALL the money to THEM. (Chas segues into scary version of "Feelin' Groovy".) Forlorn Stang meets panhandling bum LCDave in alley, whines about the money, tries to get some from Dave. Stang attempts to decipher the BILL from the Conspiracy... seques into the aged homeless Stang rambling like a toothless old stewbum/Little Big Man about the old days when he was on the Escape Vessels, elected President, lost it all... mocked as senile by the other bums. "Ah wuz Rev. Ivin Stang, star of stage and airwaves... I'se the first one to xerox "Bob's" head... it jest ain't fair..." They beat the aged rheumatic Stang. Chas: "Life 101... you FLUNK." "This parable was offered only as a lesson..." "You don't need a life; JOIN... The Church of the SubGenius." Segue back to depressed Stang on the Escape Vessels, getting jaded, bored, tired with all the Pink torturing and total Slack... "This isn't all I expected it to be... BORED with pleasure... is this what it's gonna be like forever?" ELVIS closes the show.
(not used yet:)
Then some yoyo Bobbie type calls the station and rudely expects Stang to make himself available to all fans while he's in Cleveland. Stang berates the Bobbie for not kissing the asses of Dave, Chas and Wei as well (while actually announcing exactly where the after-show party will be: the WCSB parking lot at Case Western). Detailed discussion of the parking lot. Aimless, fairly perverted spouting about Mud Pics and Wallowing, while waiting for the Next Show host to come in and take over... stalling brilliantly, spew re: mind control, Elvisian eggshell-like brain convolutions, heavy philosophical discussions about childhood sex. "Been there, done that. I already died on the toilet. If only it was that easy. When I signed my soul over to J. R. Bob"Dobbs..." (tape runs out)
(We really did just stand around in the 2 am parking lot yakking for 1.5 hours after the show.)
