Ah, the last few fleeting days before X-Day… every year… such a frenzy. Possibly it's a little like this for Santa's Elves, or the Post Office, around Xmas.
For those heading to Brushwood for 8X-Day, any important updates will be on the X-Day yahoo list and/or my SubGenius newsblog. Amazing how many things one finds one has to do even though the world is about to end.
Apparently some people have been under the impression that there is no cab service to Brushwood. THERE IS! It's only a few minutes from Sherman, NY, and cab companies in nearby Jamestown NY or Erie PA service the area.
As usual, we offer our annual last-minutes-on-Earth GIVE-AWAY on SubSITE and other Internet SubGenius outreaches.
7X-DAY the MOVIE: "SHARE THE LOAD"
Thanks to a sudden equipment donation by The Gription Clench (those starkly ever-nontightening fisters), we have remastered two old videos (about X-Day 1998 at Brushwood, a really weird extravaganza) and the new 7X-Day-of-Slack video onto one DVD, which we will first start selling at 8X-Day. But in the meantime, you can get a FREE INTERNET BOOTLEG COPY from alt.binaries.multimedia.slack.
A HUGE ARRAY OF NEW SUBGENIUS DESIGNS has been added to our CafePress SubSTORE. The largest variety of new objects d'Slack in the catalog is in the 8X-Day section: http://www.cafepress.com/subgen/188969
And in T-shirts: http://www.cafepress.com/subgen/188961
… but there are also plenty of new things among the bumper stickers, housewares, art tiles, etc. There are even now Dobbshead THROW PILLOWS: http://www.cafepress.com/subgen/188926
CONGRATULATIONS TO US! On June 19, we produced the 1000th Hour of Slack. One thousand shows since we started in October, 1985! #1000 was a Special Salute featuring tapes and letters sent in by listeners and contributors for the occasion -- and two-way Thanx Fest. This new show, our final Earth show #1001 (Sex Secrets of The Conspiracy), and a seventh XXX-Rated "Internet Only" show are all now freely downloadable from our Hour of Slack page:
THE STARK FIST ONLINE has had yet another archived month from alt.slack added, March, by guest ediotors Revs. Fenian and Paco: http://subgenius.com/bigfist/FIST2004-1/mar2k5/index.html
What else? Did I already mention the new Hour of Slack CD (#984, a "best-of), the new DVD, TEN MINUTES TO SHOWTIME, The OGGs of LeMur, the Winterstar and Detroit devivals, or Hour of Slack MP3s Volume 20? Yes? Well, I'll say it again: they're all at http://subgenius.com/scatalog/new_crap.htm
At this writing, it's 5:30 pm on Monday, June 27. In about two hours, the MegaFisTemple Lodge here will start filling up with INSANE PEOPLE. I am going to make a stalwart attempt to fill the last minute orders that come in for Salvation up to the last minute, but if we don't get your order pretty soon, we'll have to hand you your stuff personally when me meet on the Escape Vessels of the Xists… any day now.
This may be my last chance to communicate to you as Sacred Scribe before the crazy people start arriving here, or certainly before we are all Ruptured up in glory to meet "Bob" on the spaceships at 7 am this July 5. I'm sure we all feel a bit like the dolphins at the very beginning of Hitchhiker's Guide. We'd like to thank the Unsaved who helped spread Slack, and we're sorry they're all about to die so very horribly. But they wouldn't understand…
I am sure that everyone reading this is already a $30 dues-paying Minister in the Church, with absolutely nothing to worry about as the ultimate and total end of all so-called human reality approaches. To you I say, LET THERE BE SLACK! Go easy on the humans as you Vacate this mortal Evacuation Chamber; they weren't ALL the bad kind. If you must mete out vengeance, be specific. Don't go at it all willy-nilly, or the innocent will suffer EXTRA. Poor things. Oh well. They all could have sent in their $30. On second thought, I take it back. Too much is always better than not enough. LET 'EM HAVE IT.
Your Good Friend and Prayer Partner,
Rev. Ivan Stang
