THE PREPOSTEROUS BOLLOX OF THE SITUATION

A collection of stuff, things, nonsense, rants, raves, pretties, sillies, and gee-gaws from Rev. Hugo Nebula, Ordained Minister of the Church of the SubGenius. (And boobs. Sometimes there are boobs. Just like in real life.) Thank you for reading.

"Once in awhile you’ll see all these names of people who’ve gotten platinum records and you have no idea who they are. And a year later, neither does anyone else! It’s become this accelerated vacuum sucking any potential income as fast as possible, at the expense of any kind of morality or authenticity or any form of trying to discuss long-term issues. It’s become this machine—worse than ever before. We give a lot of talks at universities and when we ask, ‘what would you like, if you could have anything?’ And the most common response is, ‘I want to be rich and famous.’ And we say, ‘for doing what?’ And they say, ‘I don’t care, as long as I’m rich and famous.’ That is a massive obstacle to wisdom…"

On this day, September 30th, in 1985: Tom Waits and Island Records released “Rain Dogs.”

Today’s soundtrack: I’m a rain dog, too.

Today’s quote: “If we couldn’t get the right sound out of the drum set we’d get a chest of drawers in the bathroom and bang it real hard with a two-by-four.”

Today’s book club: Barney Hoskyns’ “Lowside of the Road.”

Today’s once annual gathering: Waitstock

The first half is another collection of 17X-Day best-of live recordings: rants from Rev. Baby Bear, Stang reading Good Rev. Roger, and Rev. Manx Darqpaw; songs by The Mutant Mountain Boys, Phat ManDee, Multiple Fisted Tails of Connie, and Andrew the Impaled (including a cover of a Tom Lehrer song!). That part of the show is really good. Then it’s crazy talk live from WCSB with Lonesome Cowboy Dave attending by phone. And by crazy talk, what we really mean is REALLY crazy talk. Praise “Bob.”

The lovely Debbie Harry

(via emmra)

A collection of self-portrait Polaroids shot by Fleetwood Mac legend Stevie Nicks will go on display at a New York City gallery next month after languishing in a shoebox for decades.

“Some people don’t sleep at night. I’m one of those people,” Nicks said in a statement about the photographs. “I would begin after midnight and go until 4 or 5 in the morning. I stopped at sunrise, like a vampire. I never really thought anyone would ever see these pictures.”

As a rock star and global icon, Debbie Harry has been photographed thousands of times. But never quite like this: in spare, intimate portraits, many of them taken in dingy apartments and clubs before she was famous.

“It was casual. There wasn’t much setup or manipulation (of the photos),” said Chris Stein, her Blondie bandmate and former lover who took the photos. “We were together all the time anyway.”

This one’s solid Spouting from the July 3, “2014” recordings from Wisteria during 17X-Day Drill. And we probably said too much. It’s Dr. Hal, Rev. Stang, and Princess Wei, with testimonies from “Suds” Pshaw, Rev. Skull and Pater & Petal Nostril. The corpse of the mysteriously-killed dog “Snuckles” is displayed (albeit not by radio) and the mystery deepens when Pater and Petal deliver their account of an attack on their car while they were in it. Who is the unseen culprit? Some sort of monster? Ol’ Sequaw? Dr. Legume or Philo Drummond? Between the speculation on the bizarre Wisteria marauder, many Church secrets — FORMER secrets, rather — were accidentally revealed, especially about the real freaks of the Church. One example: “Bob” renews himself by shedding and then eating his own skin. Also: Ren and Stimpy. There’re some pretty good Dobbs Sales rants in there too. Lovecraft fans may be especially interested. 

Shriekback have independently rereleased their ‘80’s classic album Jam Science for the first time on CD, in a 2-disc limited edition featuring the full album, B-sides, unreleased tracks and remixes, as well as a full CD of their Hatfield Polytechnic gig from which many live B-sides were culled. Copies are limited through the Shriekback store.

"Marco Arment, a former executive at Tumblr and a technology developer, said: “The damage here isn’t that a bunch of people need to figure out how to delete an album that they got for free and are now whining about. It’s that Apple did something inconsiderate, tone-deaf, and kinda creepy for the sake of a relatively unimportant marketing campaign, and they seemingly didn’t think it would be a problem.”"

Well, we really did it this time — we did another show. A relatively “normal” show by recent standards, mixing music, collage, PR Gnus, live-on-the-air spouting with the cowboy — you know, a regular plain old Hour of Slack. (We’ll be back to rough-hewn X-Day recordings next week!) There are a few last location reports from Leipzig, Germany by StangDoe, a new Psycho Skeletons tune, and a whole lot of Reagan’s Polyp, which, if you don’t know, maybe you’d better pick up on it. Also, DEVO COVER TUNES — just a smattering so far from the latest compilation of such things, the “Not Necessarily Beautiful But Mutated” CD, Volume 10! (Including “Blockhead” done by Rural War Room!) Incidentally, the German-language clips at the beginning are from the first big Captain America movie, but dubbed in German. The Nazi ranting is by The Red Skull. Don’t blame us!

We went to Germany! We had a great time! We stayed with Rev. Tatjana and Rev. Buckky in the best-located SubGenius apartment ever! We met The Large! He is large in height, voice and nerve! We saw the town! It has naked ladies and scary babies everywhere! We were horrified by hundreds of tortured Jesus pictures at the art museum! We invented a new language that nobody can understand! After the location recordings of the first half, we got Lonesome Cowboy Dave on the line and he told us about everything we DIDN’T see. And we read Rev. Peas’ godawful advice re: how to behave in Germany.
