The SCHEDULE for the End of the World is now online:
If you missed the MAIN information about 9X-Day, such as the horrifying events on the planet Jupiter which are due to climax on July 4, see
9 X-DAY MAIN PAGE
Pre-registrations are higher than last year, and we're expecting a good turnout (considering gas prices). It's looking to be fewer old timers -- they must be dying off, or having kids -- and a lot more newcomers. For all we know, these newcomers may all be 80-year-olds. But we suspect they are mostly younger. SubGenii are coming to Brushwood from such remote locales as Germany and Florida.
The bands and guest preachers are all still as advertised -- The Billy Nayer Show, The Amino Acids, Dr. Howll, etc.
I am hoping to have some new video to show, newer than "PRESCRIPTURES 35:9" or whatever I called it and "SubGenius Numa Numa Song"... but we'll for sure have sneak previews of the new SubGenius book floating around, taped to the bathroom stalls, floating in the pond, etc.
The new book, SubGenius Psychlopaedia of Slack Vol. 1 - THE BOBLIOGRAPHON, is due out in October/November. We just finished final revisions and are hoping to see galley copies soon. Meanwhile, I have my own home print-out and a marvelous PDF of it. I am very happy with it and so are the publishers, Thunder's Mouth Press/Avalon. We have not gotten a response back about the book from J.R. "Bob" Dobbs himself yet, however.
IF for some reason the Earth planet (so-called) is still here and functioning after July 5, and if we're still on it, we get to CONTINUE the insane celebrations at Brushwood two weeks after X-Day, for ANOTHER week, at STARWOOD... only, Starwood isn't SubGeniuses-only. Instead, it is a place to meet and trade with unsaved believers of other cults. Many SubGeniuses go so far as to MATE with them. This is a good way to convert people! Princess Wei is heavily involved in organizing Starwood, and I am hosting a devival there on the main Saturday afternoon. Between getting ready for the world to end, and also for it NOT to end just in CASE, We/I are plenty busy.
Rev, Magdalen's important new custody hearing with a new judge happens June 23, and we're all eagerly waiting to hear the results. However it turns out, she AND Jesus will be at 9X-Day... as will THE FAMOUS DEADLY GOAT MASK ITSELF!
I'm sure there's some other important news, but you are actually more likely to find BREAKING SUBGENIUS NEWS at ALT.SLACK. Good luck distinguishing between the SubGenii and the insane trolls! -- when there IS a distinction.
