I kind of like the idea of exalting TGRR as a god. That will reinforce the idea that many n00bs have that he is our Leader™. Then it will be extra-funny when we're all, "WTF dipshit, that was a joke".

Go write something interesting/insightful/funny.

It is, in my estimation, the most popular "Discordian" blog. It gets tons of hits from random Discordians who are not currently connected to this Discordian Society. When I was a young pinealist, I read every single goddamn thing on 23ae. It houses some good material, and a lot of fluff. It's where I first met Ratatosk, Broken AI, Dr Jon Swabey, The Other Anonymous, and the infamous Rev. Loveshade.


I actually used to frequent the site years ago. I really liked the biweekly(maybe? can't remember) podcasts they were doing for a while.

Podcasts stopped, and i stopped checking the site.
We appear to be doomed by our DNA to repeat the same destructive behaviors our forebears have repeated for millenia. If anything our problem solving skills have actually diminished with the advent of technology & our ubiquitous modern conveniences. & yet despite our predisposition towards fear-driven hostility; towards what we anachronistically term primitive behavior another instinct is just as firmly encoded in our make-up. We are capable as our ancestors were of incredible breathtaking acts of kindness. Every hour of every day a man risks his life at a moments notice to save another. Forget for a moment the belligerent benevolent billionaires who grant the unfortunate a crumb of costfree cake. I speak of pure acts of selflessness. A Mother who rushes into the street to save a child from a speeding vehicle. A person who runs into a burning building to reach a family trapped on the upper story. Such actions,such moments,such unconscious selfless decisions,define what it is to be human

Oh, what the hell. I'm in. Maybe it will get me out of the writer's block I've had over the last couple of weeks.
You cannot fathom the immensity of the fuck i do not give.

I'd help in any way I could if you'd want me. I personally never even saw the site before. I did some digging around the internet for a while and talked to a friend and fellow dischordian who got me into this whole thing in the first place. But mainly it was the Principia Dischordia and The Black Iron Prison as well as the BIP wiki-type thing. I unfortunately was dumb and didn't realize you guys fucking wrote the BIP until after I got here.  :facepalm:

At any rate, I'd love to help out in any way I can. Just let me know what I can do to help.

okay, so

everybody that's interested in this project:

write up a post!

Doesn't have to be long.

I'd like to suggest the two possible types of posts:

-Documenting the existence of the Discordian Society - there's precious little quotable data about real life Discordians doing antics. If you've had a Discordian adventure, whether it's online or in meatspace, write about it. If you belong to a cabal, tell us about it.

-Spreading "newer" Discordian ideas. Pick a topic which seems to have originated from this disgusting soup known as peedy dotcom and write it up. Could be a little sermon about the KYFMS rule, some horrormirth images, MS Paint creations, takes on the news, rants, parables, diatribes, etc etc etc. It's okay to repost-recycle material from this board - even if you're not the one who originally wrote it.



What do you think - We should aim at putting up one or two articles per week?

Let me know if you need help getting an account at 23ae.

I'm interested too.  I have been thinking I needed to get back more fully into Discordian projects, so the timing is perfect.

I think I used to have an account there, I wonder if it still works?

Hm, no, according to them I never had an account.  Which is strange, I could have sworn I posted shit on there in the past...
