Presentation was great! I shit you not Rog, except for the odd occasion when you throw in an "um" or an "err" (which didn't happen in this clip) yuo are a goddamn natural, the voice is your greatest asset, I'd kill a man stone dead for a voice that like, it has that indefinable quality that makes people either sound like they belong on teevee or not.

Only criticism I had with this release is the silence during the photo montage. That's a total no-no. Either some hard, thrashy rock or a voiceover is desperately required over this part. Pictures do not speak for themselves in the video medium.

Okay, so we're talking about content that describe what we would consider basic Discordian "theory and practice," but with a special emphasis on making up bullshit claims about how IT WILL CHANGE YUOR LIFE, a la McOccultism?

Zing! I think we're pretty much on the same page here. I love the evangelical tone of Crowley in the intro to theory and practice, defo need to throw in some of that. The ridiculous claims and pseudo science gobshite of the new age and neopagan literature will also be applied to discrodian thought paradigms.

For example, imagine a suitably "authentic" looking gardnerian spell illustrating the law of fives.

For my own part I came across discordia on the back of a long period of occult study and, from what I gather, there's quite a few on this board alone who have a similar background or ongoing interest in these kind of semantic systems.

I don't want this release to be any form of mystical system of whatever but I do think it'd work really well in the style of a caricature or lampoon of some of the classics. If there's a ritual described it should be obvious (like it was in the original PD) that it's a piss take but, at the same time, if a cabbage reads it and is convinced enough to try it then all the better.

But wait... the punchline is that WE ARE COMPRISED OF A BUNCH OF STUPID CHEMICALS. Ergo, love is as significant as any other event, emotion, or thought in our completely pointless existence.

:mittens: Welcome to nihilism. Enjoy it while it lasts (before the emos and goths completely suck the giggles out of it)

Wait a sec

I'm having trouble reconciling this:

Anyroad I've been idle for a while so I figured it's time to step up to the plate with "Discordia in Theory and Practice". If Mel Brookes did a movie version of Crowley's work then the book of the film would look something like this.

Practical Jakes, Dealing with cabbages and lots of bold and totally unfounded claims about riches beyond reason and magiqual hosries.

with this:

Basically the mandate is - leave no religion/cult/new age fad un-taken the piss-out of.

Can you clarify exactly what you're looking for, thematically and content-wise?

Maybe you were only looking at half the picture?

I'm in.

Not sure in what capacity.....but this sounds like fun.

Turning in the lions share of the content might be a good place to start  :thumb:

Deadline is just a line of dead.

Has no bearing on this project

I'm working on the cover (done minus final bulletin contents)

and the intro/editorial whatever the fuck its called

Once I have stuff I'll give it a Golden Apple Dawn makeover, kinda along the lines of what I did here and here but with moar voodoo

Right now the look that I have in mind is a Magiqual hosrie manual, like something by Crowley or Carl Buggenhagen for the main texts with the odd "full color print" like the glossy pages in book of thoth, little 1/4 page numbers in the centre. I have this to chuck in somewhere, need moar!

Also marginallia memes scrawled on in red ink/suspect human fluids. Anyone knows of any fonts that look like they were scrawled onto paper, with a sharpened ballpoint pen, by an autistic psychopath? I have a couple but a few more that repeat well or could be chopped together would be handy.

Netaungrot, master of the serifim and the arialohim, I summon your typeface-jitsu. Find me some awesome shit!

Bump! These should be stickied somewhere. Cunt to find :argh!:

Sounds excellent. If I come across anything relevant I'll toss it in here

Two things were able to get me to clean up the mess
1: Despite having a gigantic nose, I have almost no sense of smell
2: Since I'm aiming to be a nurse, I figure I'd better get used to cleaning up stuff that comes out of people.

Stabbing the culprits in random organs would have provided much better nursing practice.

Just sayin...

A friend of a friend actually saw it and got about halfway though before her eyes started to bleed. She's never been the same since.

One of the diagrams in particular, described as "a complex geometric diagram which acted subliminally, directly interfering with the operations of the neocortex, produced a profound effect on a high percentage of people who were exposed to it. So much so that the publication has been classified as harmful by several countries health and drug legislators.

I don't get it. You work in a nightclub that sells groceries and children's toys :?

Why so much chuck?

I'm guessing Wal-Mart.

That's the guys who bought over our native ASDA. Why so much vomitus? If I saw someone spewing in a fucking food aisle that motherfucker would get the living shit kicked out of them before using their face and inhale-reflex to clean the shit up :argh!:

What happens if it was a hot pregnant woman with morning sickness?

Especially then. Pregnant women piss me off. :argh!:

Fuck yeah! :mittens: 3 Episodes and you got the shit totally flowing! That was punchy, engaging, dare I say "slick".

All you need now is CGI and stunts and you'll be the complete man. Next podcast you should totally make it look like you're jumping out a burning aeroplane, wrestling a giant monkey as you plummet toward the ground only to get rescued at the last second by a UFO.

Read from the start of the #5 thread.

Heh! great idea. Also this means I can use the letter and I'll pick up a couple of spare "allusions to #4" in the process. I'll have my issue done in no time  :D
