  1. Hour of Slack #1212 - 12X-Day A: God’s Omnimpotence (or “Dr. Hal and Lonesome Cowboy Dave on Synesthesia”)

    Episode 1212 is the FIRST of many more EDITED ones to come about 12X-Day, when the last shall be first. Because we’re already behind on shows, and faced with several dozen hours of INSTOUNDING location audio to edit, we’re FIRST starting with the LAST things recorded during the 12X-Day Drill: Dr. Sinister’s uncut WCSB RADIO SYNESTHESIA show from July 5 night, broadcast right after Stang, Princess Wei and Dr. Hal and had returned from the great event, joined by phone by Lonesome Cowboy Dave. This otherwise unbroken recording is broken up by LeMur, new songs by Max Slack and Phineas Narco, and a bit of fresh Puzzling Evidence.

  2. Hour of Slack #1211 - Rerun of #951 7X-Day, 2004

    Puzzling Evidence show from KPFA, 7-9-04, has Dr. Hal and Philo Drummond reporting on their 7X-Day adventures… from this skeleton we hung documentary recordings from 7X-Day. Some audio is from the StangCam and other is from Pater Nostril’s soundboard. Clips from the 7X-Day shows at WREK Atlanta’s "Bob’s Slacktime Funhouse" with The Lymph Node Institute and Rev. Susie the Floozy further illustrate the promise and tragedy of X-Day.

  3. Hour of Slack #1210 - Live 6-21-09 Pre-X-Day

    Excitement, anticipation and severe brain damage mark this episode recorded live at the WCSB studio, as Stang, Lonesome Cowboy Dav, Princess Wei and numerous collagiasts and singers prepare for the upcoming end of Pink Human civilization on July 5. Includes a marvelous collage by Rev. Susie the Floozie about "Bob" Dobbs, X-Day and the Church of the SubGenius. Odd note: this particular show was videotaped by a director who was in town getting footage for an authorized documentary about DEVO. At least, the part that happened in the studio was videotaped.

  4. Hour of Slack #1209

    AMAZING! Some NEW X-Day hymns (including one sung, yes, SUNG by Rev. Susie the Floozie!) are intercut with about 50 of our favorite bits and pieces related to the end of all normal human reality, scheduled for this July 5. We’re getting ready to head for Brushwood in New York for the big blast-off party, so from here on out, except for a live show next week, The Hour of Slack will probably henceforth always be in reruns, forever. Unless we’re stood up again by the Xists and "Bob." This is only the 12th time we will have gathered out there at 7 a.m., faithfully awaiting Their Arisal.

  5. Hour of Slack #1207 - The Human Condition, Puzzling Evidence and Cool Band Names

    The May 22, 2009 Puzzling Evidence Show from KPFA Berkeley with host Puzzling Evidence, Dr. Hal, Dr. Philo Drummond and caller Phineas Narco forms the skeleton for this episode. The meat draped over these bones includes collages by our old pals LeMur and Norel Pref, as well as The Kleptones and Cuttlefish, but the "organs" are some new songs (and one old) by Little Fyodor, Ari Sponge, Max Slack, and Nenslo. Yes, NENSLO! Dozens of new band names are invented.

  6. Hour of Slack #1206 — Wallowing with “Bob”

    Praise "Bob," for here we have a truly all-purpose, no-theme/all-themes salad of SubGenius sources. We’ve been in reruns or live shows for so long that quite a nice stack of short clips by beloved Church of the SubGenius Audio Soldiers has piled up. This episode scavenges from Radio Synesthesia (Cleveland) and Puzzling Evidence (Berkeley), with collages from our favorite insane clip editors keeping the two SubGenius shows far enough apart that they won’t squabble and get into fights. One solitary oldie, a gospel song by Rev. Onan Canobite, is the sole anchor to familiarity.

  7. Hour of Slack #1205 - Live Star Trek Spoiler Special - May 10 ‘09

    After a 15 minute collage of collages that will make you feel like you’re on serious hallucinogens, you’ll be brought down to earth, and then a lot farther down, by a particularly meandering and burbling live show with Rev. Stang and Princess Wei in the WCSB studio, and Lonesome Cowboy Dave on the phone. The fake Star Trek spoilers are just the beginning. "Let’s mince words and torture them until they talk! Waterboard them till they SPILL!"

  8. Hour of Slack #1203 — Rerun of #276: “Bob”/Gulf War (1991)

    We have indeed gone BACK IN TIME again. This is a rerun of Episode #276, from 1991. We’re in Week 5 of the 8-week SubGenius History/How to Run Your Own Cult online class at MaybeLogic Academy, hence the reruns. Also, the Conspiracy has been keeping Dave from getting to the station. But these old shows have their own special charm. For instance, the George Bush you’ll hear us refer to in this is actually the FIRST one — not the relatively recent George Bush with the war, but an older one, with a slightly different war.

  9. Hour of Slack #1202 — Rerun of #40/772: PRAIRIE SQUID SPECIAL remix

    This is an old favorite of ours, a complete documentary about the Prairie Squid. Half of this show is from Hour of Slack #40 (1986) with G. Gordon Gordon, Rev. Ivan Stang, and background music by DK Jones, Mark Mothersbaugh, and Onan Canobite. Interspersed with that hardy and informative classic fossil are Prairie-Squid-related songs by Champion Jack Codini, songs and rants from Stang/Wei/ESO Radio and devival collaborations, a little Puzzling Evidence squididity, plus everything on Napster with the word "squid" in the title (mostly from 2000-2001).

  10. Hour of Slack #1201 — Jesus & X-Day Are Coming

    The "Bob" praisin’ takes a temporary backseat to the promise of human-enslaving and rival cult bashing. X-DAY IS COMING! And we won’t let you forget it, any more than the Christians will let you forget about Jesus. Luckily, we have on hand a solid mass of new material on both those subjects: superb collages, mash-ups and blabberclips from many fine audio arteests and bigmouths. Otherwise, this would have been a rerun, since we are still hard at work on the SubGenius Online Class at Maybe Logic Academy.
