Hour of Slack #1408 - Live 2013-04-07 - Back Out of the Saddle


Upon our return to the Cleveland Heights Slackermansion after a four month road trip, we did an old-fashioned live show at WCSB with collages, music, Puzzling Evidence clips and the buzz that sometimes comes when Lonesome Cowboy Dave calls in. We plan to buy Dave a cell phone. Collages this time are mostly by Rev. Baby Bear. Songs by The Rudy Schwartz Project and Jonathan Coulton. Background music by Cult of Zir and The Psycho Skeletons. Subjects covered include: Desert Hiking Hints. We Need a New iEverything. Things that Novelty Dinosaurs are Made Of. Pest Western and the Roach Motels of America. Forbidden Geology and the New Names for Crazy Rock Formations. Rain in Death Valley and tortoises who pee themselves to death.

Thanks to PeE - credits, JoCo & Bush. "My politics are between me and Big Brother" -- Stang - Our long trail trip - when you're going out, those one plants look gray, but when you're coming back, you see they're blue. Stang's vision of young ladies "getting it." Rev. Baby Bear credit. It ain't a desert until you see a cow carcass, and we finally found one in Grand Staircase Escalante. "Don't look at dead things." The buzz on Dave's phone now louder than Dave himself? - Stang to modernize, buy I-Everything using son's inheritance. Novelty dinosaurs made of deer antlers, car parts, lawn mowers, nails, driftwood, sheet metal, duct tape, PVC, arrowheads - our photo collection of Giant Cocks (roosters) - Don't be jealous, I had to put up with you people for 30 years - The roach motels of America - avoid Pest Western Rewards Program - MediocreLodge - The Las Vegas Motel 6: space module - Wigwam Motels! - We contracted White Nose Syndrome and Hanta Virus - Dave calls in with Buzz - put spit on it and jiggle it, do Woo Woo Dance to fix phone - broken, like my brain and the broken Playstation 3 - Dave's buzz-brain-phone - We all need a new everything - Chinese medicine - The Ohiosaurus versus the Dunkleosteus. Stang filters the buzz. Hard to tell if it's tinnitus or the phone. Listeners in car can only hear like I do. We studied geology, have new names for rock formation types: Sleeping Tyrannosaurses, White Tits, Surprised Crab, Crazy All-Kinds-of-Faces-and-Shapes Land, Crazy-Face Pancake-Lip Land, Hoodoo Toddlers; The Giant's Toes; Dripping Paint; Choc. Wafer, Schmoos, Albino Cthulutite, Fake Bricks, (Wei thinks national parks formed by nature, not man-made), Balloon Tutes, Tiki Heads, (carved by the Titans), The Devil's Drive-In, Honeycomb Hide-Out, Devil's Liquor Cabinet, Cornstarch-on-Speakers! GOOGLE YOUTUBE CORNSTARCH ON SPEAKERS - Nude Gargoyle, Monster Hunter landscapes, Bub Elbutts, Chinless Greeness and Moenkopi. Slickrock and chinle and moenkopi. Rain in Death Valley. Artists Ghetto Drive. The tragedy of the Desert Tortoise getting the pee scared out of him. "Don't frighten the tortoise or he'll pee too much." Bacteria and the buzz.

Jonathan Coulton: "Bacteria"

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.
