I would like this sort of thing, and even though I'm halfway drunk on port you should definitely hold me to it when I say I'm in.

I am completely drunk on bourbon, and I might be into it but I don't really understand what's going on.

Anyway, as I was saying...
:slaps forehead:

Rat, Cain, I just noticed one of the links posted was http://community.livejournal.com/eris_activists/

I totally forgot about that.  I created it.  The point was to counter the AFA email protests with positive messages to their targets.

I can do with it as we see fit.  First things first, I'll try to bring it back to life.

How should I go about recruiting on LJ for this?  I've already got a few.

Should I repost some of the OKM rants?  What's the best way to advertise an LJ group?

Downloading that package of goodies.  Someone remind me to upload from my dozens of gigs of eBooks on this subject when my stuff in Canada comes down in a few weeks.

Edit:  I may be exaggerating.  I do have dozens of gigs of ebooks, but they're not all on social skills.

I think jpgs of flyers, essays on the topic of recruitment for ELF shenanigans etc would be most useful... see my post on recruitment.

Just wanted to add, the Chinese warfare manual, Unrestricted Warfare (pub 1999, PLA) is available in pdf format at http://www.terrorism.com/documents/TRC-Analysis/unrestricted.pdf  This manual is precisely about thinking outside of the box and defeating a superior enemy (in this case, the USA) and so it is worth reading, I think.  I'll get back to you when I've read some more.

all these links have been added to:

http://del.icio.us/tag/discordians

(there are some other people using the tag "discordians", dunno if their links are useful, if you just want the ones that are below, see http://del.icio.us/triplezero/discordians )

http://dolphin.esosoft.net/erisbarandgrill.com/forum/index.php - Eris Bar and Grill
http://www.poee.co.uk/boards/ - POEE UK
http://lurkingrhythmically.blogspot.com/ - Discordian blogger, routinely gets several replies per entry
http://singlenesia.com/news/ - Discordian New Network
http://www.thebeak.org/ - Discordian/political blog/online zine
http://tcsf.blogdrive.com/ - Subgenii/Discordian blogger, several readers
http://uncannilyobvious.blogspot.com/ - same as above
http://deoxy.org/index.htm - possible recruitment area
http://groups.myspace.com/eris - probably 20+ active members
http://groups.myspace.com/discordianism - as above
http://groups.myspace.com/santarchists - possible recruitment ground
http://groups.myspace.com/discordians - fewer members than the others, but still 200 profiles on the member roll
http://standrews.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2204727328 (link probably wont work, put Discordian in the search engine on site) - Largest Discordian group on Facebook, roughly 1500 members.
32 other groups on Facebook, at least 10 of which have 80 odd members.
http://www.colboard.com/ and the 100,000 for Stephen Colbert group on Facebook
http://www.venganza.org/forum/index.php Yes, they're fuckwits, but...

And that's just a cursory look through my links.



Good start., also:

http://www.23ae.com (obviously)
http://www.maybelogic.net (also, obvious)

LJ groups:

There will be some crossover, but this should pick up a few bites.

http://community.livejournal.com/irr_refugeecamp/
http://community.livejournal.com/the_23_club/

Sjaantze already has a pretty large group of Myspace Discordian friends, so we can use her as an ally. I can hit all of these... I'm thinking a few different posts though, to accent on whatever aspects of Discordianism seem most apparent there (23 vs sacred chao for example).

Of course, before we blitz, we should have a location to send them to and stuff for them to read...
