Discordia Prophetica
« on: February 17, 2009, 07:02:37 pm »
This is an x-post from elsewhere on the web. This is presumably the book which contains some of the "lost writings of Kerry Thornley" that we heard rumor about a few months ago. Thought you cats would want the chance to submit stuff for it.



Hail Eris!

We are Sondra London & DrJon Swabey. We are bringing forth the Discordia Prophetica.

And so we toss the venerable Discordia Apocrypha, the Honest Book of Truth, Erisian Mysteries, & Kulcha into the Chaosotron with the freshest new discordiana in the world.

From Atlanta to Australia, Nagasaki to Athens, London to Dallas, they include: Kerry Thornley, The Erisian Elestria, DrJon Swabey, Dr. Liber, Dr. Hoopla, Prince Mu-Chao, Cardinal Sin, Pilliard Dickle, Icarus, Sham Ibrahim, Priestess of Blackwing Butterflies, Temple of Mumbo Jumbo, & Tom Bradley.

Have YOU composed any discordian prophecies or erisian mysteries, deep thoughts or smart remarks? Fnords, inexplicata, apocrypha, visions or hallucinations, doodles or diagrams, jingles or gimcracks, you'd like to SUBMIT?

WE ARE NOW ISO text and hi-res B/W graphics concerning golden apples and the tossing thereof by goddesses; references to Kallisti, "For the Prettiest One"; controversy, chaos, discord, illumination, inspiration, lunacy, slack, fives, twenty-threes, four-twenties; prophecy, glossolalia, incantation, recursive or obsessive trips, rants, brags; influenced by arcana, subgenius, dada, zines, mythology, voices in head.

- This book DISCORDIA PROPHETICA will be published as Kopyleft.
- It will be sold on a Print on Demand basis.
- We are NOT making it available electronically.
- We are going to offer this book to the public via sondralondon.com for a SLIGHT MARKUP over costs.

FAIL :argh!:

I guess someone will just have to buy it and upload scans the old-fashioned way.

yeah, they're releasing it as Kopyleft, so you can be sure there'll be electronic versions bouncing around the tubes faster than you can say 23 Skidoo.

It looks interesting, if I can dredge myself out of this funk I'll see if I can come up with something to submit.

Well, that takes the pressure off, anyway.  :lulz:

That's unfortunate because I just wrote the best thing ever.  It would have revolutionized stuff in a revolutionary way.  Oh well, guess I'll just have to send it to Penthouse instead.

rather then submitting I will just say all my stuff at the poe forum under TI's kopyleft thread can be used if they need filler..
they can also correct some of my horrible use of TI grammar if they want
Through me the way to the city of woe, Through me the way to everlasting pain, Through me the way among the lost.
Justice moved my maker on high.
Divine power made me, Wisdom supreme, and Primal love.
Before me nothing was but things eternal, and eternal I endure.
Abandon all hope, you who enter here.

Sondra?  Sounds like you are trying not to be Sandra.

Which means you are more like a cricket.

Nope, it's some different "lost writings of Kerry Thornley" than the ones you heard about.

Been busy. Will talk soon.
