The Church of the Subgenius

[I discovered this wacky group at Facebook, which claims as members Frank Zappa, George Carlin, Pee Wee Herman, David Byrne, many others - and of course they canonized Anna Nicole Smith. EL]

The Church Of The SubGenius is an order of Scoffers and Blasphemers, dedicated to TOTAL SLACK, delving into Mockery Science, Sadofuturistics, Megaphysics, Scatalography, Schizophreniatrics, Morealism, Sarcastrophy, Cynisacreligion, Apocolyptionomy, ESPectorationalism, Hypno-Pediatrics, Subliminalism, Satyriology, Disto-Utopianity, Sardonicology, Fascetiouism, Ridiculophagy, and Miscellatheistic Theology.

Then you are probably BETTER than most people!

Group Link At Facebook

[From the group intro at Facebook]

"We the SUBGENIUSES of the post-human race, in order to preserve life on this planet from immanent destruction, reestablish intelligence, regain SLACK, cast out false prophets, smother forever the fear of fear itself, receive the questionable gifts of the BEFORELIFE and of the SPACE DWELLERS, become as OVERMEN, unmask the CONSPIRACY, grip the reigns of human evolution, control reproduction and mutation, decipher THE CODE, placate the STARK FIST of Removal, achieve TIME CONTROL, see that which must come to pass, become as gods, find the Twins with the Scissors of Sight, avert the RUPTURE of the Equilibrium and secure the financial blessings of JEHOVAH 1 the God of Wrath for ourselves and our descendants, do hereby admit ourselves as such and thus ordain this advertisement of the SUBGENIUS race of Earth."


Yes, YOU can rape your own mind. YOU can finally relax in the safety of your own delusions.

This epipastic for the brains of Epoptics, Beholders, and Initiates, works an authentic magician's spell that will drive OUT the foreign personalities and id-demons. Protected by its own occult roots in the most extreme forms of para- and mech-psychology, it places the reader within a "shell" of Weird Phenomena which Must be used for good And evil.

Its system of Mystik Correspondences has already given SECRET POWER to the Church of the SubGenius - the world's first Industrial Church, the prophesied End Times cult of screamers and laughers, scoffers, blasphemers mockers, sinners, and the last true holymen in America today.

KEEP THIS CHURCH NEAR YOU - in your pocket, your bathroom, your glove compartment. Study it. Memorize it. Find within it a NEW DIRECTION- a NEW WAY - a HIGHER yet LOWER REALITY - just as thousand before you have done!


You were led to us, and we to you, by powers much greater than Man, and yet, seemingly, more random than Fate. But the ways of the great Manip-ulator in Space, Jehovah-1, only appear random. YES! Our paths crossed because it was planned - plotted out aeons ago, by alien minds more bizarre than your wildest nightmares, as part of a "WorkNet:" a cosmic scheme woven into such a complex web that not just human history, but the fabric of cause-and-effect themselves was disrupted. FACE IT - the very fact of your eyes moving across this page at this moment is inevitably and subatomically decreed. You are locked into the machinations of a Cosmic Puppeteer who works your strings so skillfully you never knew they were there.

UNTIL NOW! The Church can't cut your strings - you wouldn't want us to, if you knew what they can mean for you - but we can show you where the strings are attached and how to 'sync up' with the to stay one jump ahead of the other puppets by assisting the Puppet Master: by following the Path of Least Resistance.


Below you will find SO many links relating to SubGenii or SubGenius oriented sites that it will MAKE YOUR EYES BLEED if you looked at them all in succession! Remember: You've been warned!

The Alzheimer's Project on HBO

[Not having seen this yet, I'm trusting the reviews, the subject, and the artistry of these filmmakers, that this is a must-see series - el]

HBO is going to unscramble its premium signal Sunday, at least in some areas, allowing non-subscribers to view "The Alzheimer's Project" part one, at 9-10:30pm Sunday night.

HBO says of the series "It's a new way of looking at the disease". Click here for the HBO Link, and all four episodes can be streamed from here as well.

My lifetime friend, Charlton McMillan, and his wife Shari Cookson were instrumental in creating The Memory Loss Tapes, the first episode of this four-part HBO series. Shari, who is a multiple Emmy nominee for Living Dolls and All Aboard! Rosie's Family Cruise, shares director-producer credit with Nick Doob. Charlton, an Emmy winner for Living Dolls, shares editing credit with Nick. Charlton also did some editing work on the second part of the series, Grandpa, Do You Know Who I Am?

Here are two print reviews for the series:
New York Times
L.A. Times
A blog review from critic James Bawden

Be sure to either watch or record this and let people know about it. We never know when we will have to deal with this disease either within our families or within our own minds. Rather than giving money to corporate gamblers, we should be funding cures and care for humanitarian efforts and documentaries such as these.

The Alzheimer's Organization is at

Patients and families affected by Alzheimer’s can visit Icara Study to see if they might be eligible to enroll. [Thanks to Tracy for this]

Our Evolution Blog, One To Visit

I found a blog I like enough to post about it. Called "Our Evolution", the blog can be found at Our Evolution

Post shown is about 3rd world women having to carry
contaminated drinking water 3 miles on average.

It's about the survival of humanity and making survival a right for everyone on the planet. From Alexander M. Zoltai, here is his own description of himself:

"I'm a poet, essayist, journalist, and humanitarian. Everything I write comes from the desire to help, to heal, to educate.

Our Evolution blog is a process of bringing together Cultural Issues, Personal Commentary, and Spiritual Quotations to Explore the Crises of our time and provide a space encouraging Discussion, Reflection and Action."

Quote is from Alexander's profile here at Blog Catalog, the best blog directory:

This is definitely a ***** blog! That's five stars, not an expletive!

The Henry Miller Method of Diplomacy

Henry Miller was one of the more misunderstood writers, often censored or banned simply because of the use of profanity. A funny comment he made was "sometimes you just have to blurt out 'Shit!', as nothing else is as appropriate." He used a stream of consciousness technique that let his mind flow from one idea to another with little cohesion other than that it perfectly illustrated how our minds work, while revealing his underlying philosophy, which was a love for humanity, abhorrance of war, strife, and materialism.

My favorite books of his were the trilogy called "The Rosy Crucifixion": Sexus, Plexus, and Nexus. In all of these he has many dinners with a diverse group of friends. He says that he purposely invited about eight people of diverse beliefs and backgrounds, believing their differences would make for interesting debates and conversation.

He says after one of these that "if the world leaders would only get together, have a three hour dinner and share many bottles of wine, they would all agree to disagree, but would emerge as friends after the evening, and all wars could be prevented." He also thinks that the average citizens of each nation never prefer war, but the leaders are able to thrust them into wars without their consent, or use the media to manipulate them into wars for political reasons.

Most of his writing was done after WW1 but before WW2, but I think, along with the Dadaist art movement, that they could all see the potential for another war looming, and were all concerned with its prevention through common sense and comraderie. Too bad we can't seem to make this work in practice, on a large scale.

Miller's best book critically was edited by friend Anais Nin, who took about 2000 pages of outtakes from the pair of Tropic books and created the wonderful short story collection called Black Spring. If Miller's work is new to you, I'd start with this book. The stories "The Tailor Shop", about his dad's shop in the garment district of New York, and "The Angel is My Watermark", about painting a watercolor, are two of the best stories I've ever read. I suppose many writers could benefit from a great editor, as this book illustrates.

Is the Universe a Giant Hologram?

This is an interesting article at New Scientist.

That's Titan in the background, and the little "golf ball" is the moon Epimetheus.

Kentucky Derby Day - Huge Exacta and Trifecta

When I lived in California, we'd make each Derby day a group trip to the racetrack, since it followed my ex's birthday on May 1. I learned to bet a five horse exacta box (a "box", you get all your picks in separate bets) at $5 tickets for $100 even. This means that any two of my picks came in 1-2, then I'd win on one $5 ticket.

Not knowing horses and thinking all the "bloodlines" and racing forms to be ripoffs of the gullible, I relied on pure psychic intuition for the numbers, getting them just before the race. Today's were "16-8-4-2-1", and they came in "8-16-2"..

Not only would I have hit my exacta again, but had I bet it, the trifecta as well (many more tickets for that, so I avoided it). Todays winner, Mine That Bird, with jockey Calvin "The Rail" Borel, also a winner in 2007 aboard Street Sense, paid 50-1, the second longest shot to ever win.

The $2 exacta paid just over $2,000! My $5 winner would have paid just over 5,000. The $2 trifecta paid over $41,000! dang.. someone is happy - can you imagine: a $10 trifecta winner would have gotten over $200,000!

Update (5.04) - heard today on CNBC that six people won the "Superfecta" with $1 tickets that paid $276,000! yowie zowie..

I can't bet even on horses here in Georgia, nor can I buy alcohol on Sunday (I don't even drink, but still...) - due to "religious freedom", the ability of the majority religion to completely suppress the rights of the minorities.

Yep, that Bible of the imagination prohibits alcohol, gambling, drugs, consensual sex - all sorts of stuff if you just "read between the lines" (but it allows slavery and the raping of female slaves and genocide) - and listen to your country preacher, who "had the calling" so he didn't need theology school. I think when I need brain surgery, I'll take the guy with "the calling" over the one with education.
