Hour of Slack #1522 - Stang Invents the Wheel


Readings from THE BOBLIOGRAPHON, new collages by new contributors, a song by Charleston Okafor, some Puzzling Evidence, and a whole mess of signifying. Not a small mess, but a very large and prolonged mess of signifying. Inspired by doodles on a napkin, Rev. Ivan Stang single-handedly invents an entirely new science and technology from scratch. May be over the heads of non-scientists and poebuckers. It was certainly over Stang's head.

6 Live:

Stang explains Puzzling Evidence credits problematically, Chareston Okafor's CD "Passport", too nice for HoS but Rama Rama fits perfectly.

Stang reads from THE BOBLIOGRAPHON with Esquivel music in background. Explains the title, reads more from page 121 to 123 (mostly by Stang and Canobite)  on Fighting the Conspiracy and False Slack. (Stang adds a line "if you have enough sense to get out of the rain, anyway.") A little Claude Rains-style ranting. You'll be searching for "Bob" on the scaly roof of your own mouth (Onan line) We put the misc in Fundamentalism.

SubGenius book publishing history. "New" book 9 years old, old enough to marry in some countries. Color ebooks. 3D! Conspiracy fake 3D. "Keeping Cleveland Retro" t-shirt. "Keep Austin Weird" irony. Waiting for Dave. Smith-Stang-Smedlap. Esquivel. Bro. Cleve and Esquivel. Dave calls in. Charleston's song and show. What's old - me. Stang defends the 1960s Time-Life books predictions of computers. Nano brains of presidential candidates and voters. Vetenari for President. Sir Terry Pratchett's death and Alzheimer's. "Will" get it?!? The 90 year old mind. "I will now prove people get all stupid before they die." Stang's been thinkin' -- and came up with cosmically basic mathematical axioms all on his own. Stang had vision of the self-evidence of certain basic truths. (uncannily similar to pre-Euclid Greek math) Dave thinks Stang's crazy! Stang walks Dave through basic circle-radius and line-point revelations he has spontaneously experienced. A closed, ideal state that cannot be measured. Limited by tools, yes, but PURE understanding: ever-more dimishing triangles within a circle with tiny bases sitting on the circumference. IRRATIONAL! Some numbers make good sense, but then... crazy numbers! It never ends! The Nines numerology early arithetic system vas the commercial 10 series. The superior 60-based Mesopotanian system. What about us 11-fingered and 9-fingered people? Stang's discoveries regarding right angles being equal to each other, deduced by scribbling on a napkin! The opposite angles will always be equal, so there's some HOPE in this world now that I've invented it. They taught this in high school? Being blind and deaf hasn't slowed me down a bit. Any angle inscribed in that semicricle? -- a right angle! Not a wrong angle! Nazis. Stang goes on to invent a new thing, a circle or disc set upright with an axel, called The Wheel. "Only a SubGenius could come up with this same thing over and over again! I'm pretty sure I thought of this the week before last too!" Dave on all math = all math. What is the point of knowing all these angles and pies and slices? 4 x 90 is 360? WHOA! He's RIGHT! The constellation Thesaurus, the God Lizard, even primitives recognized the head of the Tyrannosaurus and its tail, the North Star. Savages grinding nuts into a fine paste. Get your radii and everything. Dave says science is weak. Too many video games. "Them sciences is stuped." Stang worries that maybe his invention of math could lead to weapons - Thaings that Man was Not Meant to Know rant. Mama Gorgo and Global Warming. Dave on Stang's brain wiring, fears Stang will put his brain out of its misery. Stang a dandy, an interstellar fop. Who's paying the checks? X marks the people who signed the checks. We won't lose our thumb, because iphones. Can't flip coins with tongues. Stang has new realization re: parallel lines! (Conan music in bg) -- then invents the mchanical computer! Decides to rob 7-11. Reasurring that between points it's finites -- but take a point away, let "Bob" follow THAT line! A godzillion and one points long! God and math questions for Padre. SOME Catholic priests aren't pedophiles with chest merkins. Amazon ladies and chest hairs, and guitar straps. Picture of 60s all-woman topless rock band -- Subs notice the EQUIPMENT not the tits. Some don't think a girl is pretty if real -- must look like a drawing with the head of a beast. Not WRONG... just WEIRD!! Makes me want to bully them. Usually Dave is ready to kill himself much earlier in the show. Dave compliments Stang re Church goal. The SubGenius Must Have Slack! Now just have to figure out what Slack is for every single SubG. False Slack rant-quotes! With good bg music. The conundrum of Max Slack not wanting to have his work associated with anything that might make money somehow (pay per download). (Must be rich.) For more Max Slack songs: http://maxslack.net - intro The Funny Side. Alergic to or overdosed on money? Or just cooler? Dave as Ayn Rand.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Rap Song lyrics


Ft. Christopher Tung



Welcome to the Arena

So nice to finally meet ya

We're here to extinct some elder beasts

Stick them in a museum


Slaying dragons with Great Swords

Bustin' beats on Hunting Horns

Slash and rhyme like the Hero of Time

I'm always quick to try force


Fight the prey all night and day


Cause I'm a Hunter



I'm a Monster Hunter



I'm a Monster Hunter


Now listen close as the monsters approach

Ya need some epic loot - I'm on the pursuit

Shoot 'em out of the sky and I'm hearing their cries

Ultimate combo rate, there's no escape


From the Primal Forest to the Great Sea

I'm always getting ingredients for my new recipes

We don't stand alone, my whole team's deployed

Gunning down these clowns like something out of Metroid!


Put you underground like a Black Diablo

I'm the O.G., Sonic and Mario

Ya I'm on the quest to protect the terrain

Don't pray to no god, I just killed Rajang!


Cause I'm a Hunter



I'm a Monster Hunter



I'm a Monster Hunter


Entered Rage Mode, chargin' all my might

Every battle I engage in is a final boss fight

Make sure these beasts remain mythology

I'll come at you, don't care about ecology


I'm no defender, I'm a fire starter

Decked out in my Silver Sol armor

Bring death, try to flee, but there's no way you can

Bust a master on the track, like my name's MegaMan.


There's now more monsters than ever before

It's no longer a hunt, it's the ultimate war

Ninety-eight different beasts and I gotta stop them

Can't be overcome I drop the hammer on them!


Stand my ground, got the power of will

Not to mention an endless list of Armor Skills

Summon my alliues, I'm a minion caller

And you'll see the gore spill when I slay Magala!


On top of my game, scaling Heaven's Mount

I'm the last one standing on my slayground

It's survival of the fittest, when the world needs saving

They say Man shouldn't play God, good thing I'm not playing!


Cause I'm a Hunter



I'm a Monster Hunter



I'm a Monster Hunter
