Hour of Slack #1710 - In Search of The Fountain of Age with Bleepo and Philo


Lonesome Cowboy Dave called in sick, so Stang called in Doktors: Dr. Philo Drummond (co-SubFounder of the Church, OverMan First Degree), and Rev. Bleepo Abernathy, radio professional and character actor. The show starts with one ancient song by each, and then it's another of those "two old guys talking" shows, except it's three old guys with Captain Beefheart instrumentals in the background. We had technical problems at first, about one third of which is included in this edit, but then settled on a merged-call system that worked (FaceTime Audio). So we'll know what to do next time... Meanwhile this might be one of those episodes that makes some listeners yearn for more reruns from the lively barrage shows of the '90s. For those who happen to be greedy for Church Secrets and Church history, however, this one is a treasure trove. Admittedly, it's not so much a Fountain of Youth as a Fountain of Age. (Hey, there's a TITLE!) As always the episode is framed by LeMur tracks, which are somewhat like raccoon footprints, but louder and more exotic.

They get so worked up over things that don't even exist! The word "Bobbies" like "sheeple" -- only Bobbies and sheeple call others those names. Origin of Bleepo, Stang, Philo names. Philo's skill at making up names; Stang practiced until he could to. The Lists we came up with. The influence of Evil Clowns. Will "Bob" kill us for being too blunt and plain? Not Bleepo, he has the Certificate. Our enemies, and the federal agencies listening to us. The phone company spies on everyone for the government, and Philo helped!The words "frop" and "trigger" trigger the robots. Bleepo is friends with Beefheart's drummer. Chuck McCann and Bleepo.

Stang explains Bleepo's career. Dr. Hal was at Starwood, we got donation so he'll be at next X-Day! Gotta keep the donators secret! Bleepo intro continued. Problems of getting cast in Hollywood or even pizza delivery work. Bleepo worked on SOLVER, first feature by Stang's son Xandy Smith. Philo dragging a corpse around in the background. Bleepo surrounded by movie stars, Philo and Stang in isolation. Philo to grow hemp in Kentucky. More Republicans smoking pot. Frop is the FAVORABLE slippery slope. Frop is not a gateway drug but more of a BRIDGE. .. to Dokstok Mountain. Philo has a knob. Stang's (broken) TEAC 4-track just displayed to look cool. Bleepo's best reels of tape got ruined by neighbors flooding everything. But STANG has them! Vertical Helical Scan. Xandy is Stang's 40-year-old son. Stang had a beer gut but then a heart attack. "Well ya finally gave up, huh son?" Stang explains how much Stang would never have klnown without Philo. Philo knew "Bob" before anybody! How Philo got Stang on the Internet, pre-WWW. AOL, comcast etc. -- Freenet, Usenet, The reams of paper with unedited alt.slack. There were only four people on the Internet. When video replaced film and Net replaced video.
