*************************************

ROBOHAMLET play -- now in NYC, April 10 - 19

A COMEDY ABOUT THE EXTINCTION OF THE HUMAN RACE.
The Church's new Sacred Agent is the producer, and SubGeniuses get in for half price!

Medicine Show Theatre, 549 West 52nd, 3rd floor, New York City
All shows 8 pm, $20. Tickets and reservations, call Medicine Show, 212 262 4216.

ROBOHAMLET is the story of the extinction of the human race at the claws of their own creations, the Crylons, genetically modified crabs created to make a caviar substitute, whose incredible fecundity has overwhelmed their human creators. The last humans make a brave stand, and the only weapon that can stand between them an annihilation of humanity is the Robot, who carries the burden of human culture, recites Shakespeare, and feels ambivalent.

April 28 to June 22:
MaybeLogic Academy's SubGenius History and Cult Development 8-week ONLINE Course:

Running Your Own Cult - Do's and Don'ts / History of the Church of the SubGenius

SubGenii may be interested to know that the course allows you to download, if you want to, THREE DVDs worth of audio, video, and graphics. Includes ALL the Media Barrage and Bobsongs tapes, all the SubCon tapes, a ton of video unavailable anywhere else, and thousands of scanned photos and zines, including most of the 7 giant Stark Fist printed issues. If you're REALLY curious about the real-life side of SubGenius, or if you simply like bargains, for that $135 admission price you get media that would cost about a thousand bucks if you bought the items one at a time and if they were available anywhere else.

Last year's course attracted 50 students and was very successful. Because we got so much scanning done last year, and a detailed history of the Church written, there will be a lot more time this year to expound, tell embarrassing stories and do online chats with the students. We will also try to drag in more Guest Instuctators like Dr. Philo Drummond, Onan Canobite, G. Gordon Gordon, Dr. Hal, LIES, maybe even Nenslo!

Here are the other instructors of various MaybeLogic Academy classes so you can see how highly faluted it is.

But most important of all, here is the shopping cart.
This might be the last year we do this!

St. Byron Werner on Little Rock news TV
The local news DARED to bring St. Werner into their studios to show his art, discuss his illustrious Hollywood FX and art career, and his Secret Techniques. I notice that the examples of his art shown do not include any of his blowjob collages. In fact MOST of his new artwork they probably dare not show. St. Byron retired from the Hollywood scene and moved to Little Rock about 4 years ago. He just wrapped up an L.A. art show with Rev. Mark Mothersbaugh, St. Robert Williams, St. Gary Panter , Todd Schorr , Dennis Worden, The Pizz and others.

Fixing alt.slack, the SubGenius Forum

Normally it is the greatest forum on the Internet. (It's also one of the very oldest!) Recently, for those who access it through Google Groups and browser, it has been marred by spam and numbskulls. This browser fix 'kills' the spam and Pinks.

Also, for gamers, SubGenius Steam Groups wanted

SubGenius movie screenplay
That's what I, Stang am working on in my copious spare time. I don't want to say who prompted us to finally get on this, because nobody would believe me. We're also engaged in finding overseas publishers for Italian and French translations of our books, and planning a SubGenius art book and more CD albums.

Rev. Magdalen and family can still use all the help they can get with the SubGenius child custody case. The family is currently together, thanks to a gigantic screw-up by their enemies, but their legal bills are eating them alive. All details at Modemac's Wiki.
