Hour of Slack #1337 - 7 AM July 5, "2011" - Awaiting the Xists

PG: 58:56  Internet XX: 69:32

We had so hoped that we wouldn't have to produce this particular show; we had hoped that our Pleasure Robots and Sex Goddesses would edit it for us. Much of this show was recorded (on a video camera operated by Stang) on the last day of the 14 X-Day Drill, the morning when we awaited the Saucers from Planet X and once again got shafted instead of beamed up in a shaft of light. Various songs and other live Hour of Slack business from the Wisteria stage build up to the recordings of the Moment of Truth, which had to be edited considerably for the broadcast version. This Internet version, however, is not only uncut but has a bonus extra 9 minutes of blather and palaver from the participants as we all tried to work out why the aliens keep NOT Rupturing us up to our promised Escape Vessels. Considering that this was the 14th time we've been let down, and technically the 16th year we've Drilled, the gathered SubGeniuses were pretty good sports about it. The louder participants include Dr. K'taden Legume, Dr. Hal, Papa Joe Mama, Princess Wei, and Rev. Susie the Floozie. Incidentally, this whole Drill was shot in 3D by a documentary crew, although their project is about SubGenius in general rather than just this festival.

After 16 shows derived from 14X-Day recordings, next week is our Traditional Xistlessnessmess Rerun, and then we move on to Starwood, a very different festival held in the very same place.TO DONATE: http://subgenius.com/ts/hos.html

We-Slack (aka W-SLACK)
Nonstop streaming of all SubGenius shows! -- past and present, hosted by Rev. SlanderBob:

NOTE: THE HOUR OF SLACK is released in two versions.

The X-RATED "INTERNET VERSION" contains all original "fucks," "shits," "God damns," etc., and this is the one which is downloadable from SubSITE and which is sent to individual subscribers OR non-American radio stations.

All American radio stations (except WORT, Madison) are sent the "PG RATED CENSORED VERSION," which has the Bad Words either reversed, bleeped, or replaced with the spoken word "Bob", depending on what works best.

The Church of the SubGenius Radio Ministry seeks to brainwash you totally into abject lifelong subservience to The High Epopt and Living SlackMaster, J. R. "Bob" Dobbs, BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.
