Awww thanks guys! :)

I'm on winter vacation right now!



Had a great job interview last week -- unfortunately there's a lot of competition. Typical! Ah well, it's just a job.

When I ordered my Chao Te Ching hard copies, I ordered a bunch of other Discordian lit too. So I picked up The Book of Chaos And It's [sic] Virtues by Verthaine, and I picked up the Jonesboro Discordia.

TBOCAIV is pretty cool - Verthaine's spin on things is really interesting. For those of you that don't know who he is, the dude is a total bad ass from New Orleans, who operates (or operated?) a physical 3D Discordian church. Verthaine treats Discordia as a legitimate spiritual tradition, which he presents in a very flippant / humorous / slapstick (but serious) way. He also handles Eris as a mother figure, sort of a creator spirit, the sort of way one thinks of The One True God. So it's very different from the version of Discordia I've been carefully brewing all these years, and it's really refreshing to see it handled so well.

The Jonesboro Discordia is all over the place. It's really thick with filler, and most of the content was cribbed from the web. There's large sections of Liber FruFru and other web stuff that a lot of the Discordian Historians will be familiar with already, and it's nice to see that stuff in print. Sadly, the print quality is kind of low - little effort was made to touch up scans and jpegs, leaving a lot of pages fuzzy and pixelated, tough to read. I love it when people make their own versions of the principia. There are some gems in there, but it definitely suffers from a lack of editing. It feels like there was little debate about what to include - everything goes in! It's almost manic. You can tell that Pope OldBoy Floats (Tim Bowen) had a lot of fun writing it. It would be a bit easier to thumb through if there was more attention to quality though.

I can't believe that it's been 10 years since Cramulus died.   :cry:

We are all formed of dead flesh, and are but the sockpuppets of our baser natures.

And if, like Cram, we are recalled from some deeper death, to wander the Earth as an unliving proxy, we should not regret it overmuch; for, perhaps it is better to be remembered falsely, than to be truly forgotten.

Sorry, no opt-outs.

They'll only talk to Cramulus, you see. It doesn't actually have to be him, you see, he just... needs to be there for the negotiations, if you get me. It's all very red-tape.

And I've kept things going for 10 damn years (with no help from any of you ingrates), I don't wanna hear any lip.
