i was thinking we could have him cover someone related to anon v. CoS

It's a cool cause - for sure - but it's not our cause.
I'd hate to think the Ancient Illuminated Discordian Society was getting coopted as Anon's personal army...


i was thinking the other-way around; LDD is responsible for anon's movement.

but meh.
Ya' stupid Yank.

you're absolutely right. Can someone write up a VICTORY! paragraph?

And who has the video footage? I know we've got the movie files SOMEWHERE...

did anybody catch thursday night's show?

he promoted stickerGASM and his guest was a guy who had written a book about the emergence of the internet as a tool for "organizations without organization".

didn't catch the show.

can you clarify what you mean by "stickerGASM"?


Edited to add:

Got it, nm. So he's encouraging a sort of stickergasm, but not literally stickergasm. Got my hopes up.  :p

If that was the episode with the 2nd Tek Jansen adventures, yah, that was gold. there was also a GASM in the cartoon, as the 'secret base' that Tek had to go to had a big sign that said "OctoGasm".

EDIT:
Cram- Steven told the Colbert Nation to print stickers that said "Peabody Award Winning", and put them on all the Dorito bags in their local supermarket. His guest (who's book was about emergent trends in disorganizations) said that if the Colbert Nation ran with the concept and did something novel (i.e above and beyond what Steven had asked them to do) with the Stickers it would be such a trend.

I wasn't paying too much attention, but Colbert may have made another reference to the forums.

Episode 4044
He's interviewing Trevor Paglen the author of I Could Tell You But Then You Would Have to be Destroyed by Me: Emblems from the Pentagon's Black World
towards the end of the interview, I'm pretty sure Colbert mentions the Illuminati and possibly something golden. 

I'll watch the rerun and check this again.


Edit: Checked. No dice. Just says that the masons are a front for the Illuminati.

this sounds to me more like, if it's in any way related to us, colbert stealing the show and our ideas and ... what does anything have to do with doritos? he could have at least picked "Golden Delicious" apples or something :)

adding to that, having gone through the trouble of printing stickers that say "PEA BODY AWARD WINNING", i don't think it's a stretch to stick it onto something where it's actually funny.

hell, even if some knucklehead accidentally sticks it onto the wrong thing, it'll be funny.

(unfortunately, 99.99% of the population lacking any sort of basic creativity beyond that, they won't realize that they can pretty much print anything they like onto stickers and stick them onto whatever :) )

..

unless of course, we take the idea and run with it, stealing his show :) see, if we give them (on the colbert fora) the idea to take pics, put them on Flickr and tag them "peabodygasm" or just "colbertgasm", it might go viral in no time.
but, don't do that just yet, because if there's no way to affix the idea of "discordia" or something to it, it's mostly useless to us.

GOOOD call zip.


There are two ways that this project can be "branded" with the Discordia meme-
1) the -gasm suffix totally links back to us... if anybody bothers to look it up
2) we co-opt the cause for our own cause. In the initial blast of flickrgasming, we make sure that the stickers we place and tag are subversive, countercultural, etc. Put the "peabody award winning" stickers on things of extremely low quality: common brands like McDonalds, Walmart, and yes, Doritos.


ETA:
this may be a lot of work, and would be much easier if we had some established presence on the colboards. Cain and I keep meaning to go over there and make friends, but I've been too easily distracted. I think Cain has managed to wave hello successfully.
