Hour of Slack #1456 - The Secret of Flight 370 (Live 2014-3-16)


Back in 1994, Hour of Slack originated in Dallas, but we used a lot of material recorded whenever Rev. Stang visited Cleveland and sat in on the late Chas Smith's show, "ESO Radio/Brain Rot Theater" on WCSB. One of the best chunks of one of the best of those shows, "Lonesome Cowboy Dave in Space," comprises the majority of this episode. Many listeners thought it was SCRIPTED! The only thing that was scripted however was the intro to the ESO show tapes, detailing the truly dire deadlines and circumstances of The SubGenius Foundation in late 1994. (We had two weeks to finish our half-finished book REVELATION X, and we had just moved (most unfortunately, as it turned out) from our funky old house into a brand new custom home.) Also in the show is music from Nenslo, The Rudy Schwartz Project and Doktorz 4 "Bob".

Credit for Rev. Xister of Minute of Slack for collage of old Twilight Zone, LemMur, etc. Stang speculates if perhaps he and his video game character Stangor should swap jobs, since Stangor is overworked and Stang is bored with his job. But Stangor is made of pixels. Or maybe WE'RE the ones who are made of pixels. How do we know? Our TV viewing, and the Con's watching of Lonesome Cowboy Dave. (Dave's call got dropped.) Dave calls, but has bad buzz on phone. The Con must be recording. Misc. Phone Trouble talk, gags. We're scared of you listeners. Princess Wei's folk music band. Video games are better than real life - can't die or be too hot or cold. Where's Dave? Listeners, can you fix this show? Dave calls back - still has hum or electrorub in back of skull. Buzz disappears when Stang identifies the artificial brain that's filtering the hum. Dave's telepathy is messing up the phone. THE LIMITER WAS IN DAVE'S HEAD. That implant's 60 cycle hum. Our actions are defined by "Bob" but he's paying no attention, so everyone but Dave has free will. Dave has a buzz instead. We smell too bad to do theater or comedy clubs... nor do we have to smell the audience. NSA and dog people must sniff you out. Not mutant animals if they're reproducing - they're new species. The sad, sick SubGeniuses we see in our backyard in the cold, eating bark off the stripped bushes. How to roll and smoke a SubGenius. SubGenius cooking discussion. Stang's autistic reaction to food discussions. Wei's Viking crown. Stang imitates Wei. On X-Day that other horn-light will start flashing and the saved will be Ruptured. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Rev. Seek (by Robert Louis Neal Stephenson). And Rev. Sikh. Heckle and Jekyll's accents vs. The Goofy Gophers. Tiny hats that go inside the brain, not outside the head. How do we know we're not the cartoon or game or goldfish of some other god like player? Did God just leave his Playstation? Wearing soiled diapers and talking to himself? How do we know we're not just "characters" too? Does a goldfish know its in OUR goldfish bowl? Basis of religion. Bad noise on the line again -- the radio station didn't kill jesus -- the cops did. Weird Dave Jesus stuff. Could Dave's pocket pool be causing this radio interference? Noise-storm of crumble - snow thunder. Went from hum to buzz to buzz-crumple, then gone, now palpable and palpatable. Cushion-shaped but consistency like Shredded Wheat. Stang and Susie can recognize wave forms of shit and fuck. Listen to how dirty this show is. The mice nibbling on the wires in Dave's basement. Hilarious description of Capn Crunch cereal in CRYPTONOMICON. How Waterhouse eats Capn Crunch vs. Stang's approach to Capn Crunch. Dr. Sinister enters. Quaker Oats guy mystery. Cap'n Crunch is not really a captain. Vs. Captain Crunch the phone phreaker. Sivet Stang could send a fax using her voice. Playing songs on phone key pad. More Devo than Little Fyodor. Dave's question re: what happens to Subs left behind on X-Day. (We don't care.) Station not tax-payer money, so nobody's paying us. Dave and I were working here for free before you were even BORN Dr. Sinister. Sinister was told he was found under a cabbage patch. How did the sperm get to the egg? Left to yr horrible imagination. Against the law to teach that only women can have babies. Phone problems theories, sign out.

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.
