I can't remember where I initially found this poster or who made it, but I wanted to say that this one



has been left up longer than any others I've left around campus and downtown.*  No, the one that's not the boob.  The 'gulik juice' poster has lasted 2 months and counting, while the rest usually come down within the week.  If you (whoever is reading this) invented it, you are the awesomeness.

(*Except for that one sticky note "your friend likes this" which is still on the glass bookcase in my department almost a year after the fact.  I love seeing that thing every day.)
It feels unreal because it's trickling up.

*bump*

I will start POSTERGASMing like hell as soon as I find something that survives translation to Norwegian.

Of course not! I'll spend my Christmas break trying to come up with something.

I just realized that I never updated my prior post, in case anyone is interested.

I put up Volume Aleph, Dingus, and Calvinball, all over campus.  By the very next day more then half of the flyers had been taken down =(.  Each day since, I notice even more missing.  The upside is I know people are noticing them, I've heard random conversations about some of them, and I know for sure that every single one was noticed at least by the person(s) taking them down. 

The first ones to come down were, of course, the "Miscarriage is manslaughter" and "Christian Dating" ones, as I put them on the bulletin normally used by the Campus Crusade for Christ, which is the college evangelist nutjob society that are the pushiest and most self-righteous in-your-face group we have.  In fact, we had an event last year with a local senator come to campus, and since one of her things was anti gay marriage, the local LGBT (or is it LBGT?  I dunno, it's the gays) group staged a peaceful protest out front, and tons of other student not even a part of the club joined in to help make the senator feel "welcome".  As I think being against gay marriage is retarded, I too joined in, but the church nutjobs did a thing of their own in support of the senator and had their anti-protest protest stand in front of us being lame.  Anyway I got off topic.

There's still one more volume I haven't done, but since the bulletin boards on campus get cleared at the end of the month, I'm going to wait until the first before I put them up.  Also I'm going to buy a fuckton of googley eyes because those pics I saw are hilarious!

Anyway, thanks for the lulz folks!  Everything I heard from students about your posters was positive!  Except for the Evangelists of course, but insults from them can be taken as a compliment.

For college campuses, there's an easy way to help make your shit look "official".

Just find an already posted flier with a clean stamp of approval (I assume it's quite standard to have to validate fliers for posting...) Scan that and shop the expiration date. rotate to random orientations and print over existing fliers.

I had trouble keeping fliers up at my community college- that small detail was pretty good at extending the life of some.

I've done this also; I can also vouch that it pisses the official stamp-holders right the fuck off. :lol:

That's a damn good one!

I just wanted to bump this back up because I saw somebody say before that GASM's are dead.

If you think that is true, please don't forget that some of us operate with the KYFMS system and don't bother reporting on it here.  I bragged a bit during my very first round of throwing up posters, but in the large amount of time since then, my cabal has stolen many of the posters and other GASM ideas and material and spread the Eris, without reporting in. 

Please do not close or give up on GASMs just because direct immediate participation may suffer.  Remember those of us who are not original and shamelessly steal good ideas and put them out there quietly.  Not to mention all of the things here we didn't copy verbatim but that inspired our own somewhat related missions.

You may not always see all the results of the brilliance you guys put out on the internets, but it definitely reaches farther than it would seem to.

I never thought of GASMs as a movement, that "could die".  I thought they were more like activities.  Like saying a GASM is dead is like saying coloring a coloring book is dead. It's not even a comment to worry about.

I've seen a lot of posterGASM-like material from (seemingly) non-discordian sources in the past year or two. I can't say if this is a success, a cynical re-appropriation by the Spectacle, or just something relating to awareness or the group I associate with. But, if we don't do posterGASM, the straights will -- and while I don't have strong feelings either way about that, it might push some decisions.

When you say, (seemingly) non-discordian sources, do you mean the material does not seem to convey the type of humor or style that a Discordian is likely to use, or do you just mean that you don't recognize the posters themselves from any of the posterGASM collections you've seen?

I'm just wondering if those posters are, themselves, not Discordian at all in nature, or just not from a recognizable discordian source.

I'm finding it hard to come up with words today, my head is in a weird place, apologies if my question is confusing or stupid
