I've now read 80% of the book, and it is exactly what you all set out to do. Excellent work to all the contributors!

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ITS FINALLY DONE!!!!!!!!!! WOOT WOOT WOOT

         

Hey but um Cram? aren't you completely forgetting to credit Net in the OP? Seeing as he did a shitload of the layouting and graphics designing works? Or does he prefer his part to be anonymous? After all, I did participate in brainstorming and then setting up and running the short-forum, did a little bit of work on selecting and editing some texts, but after that it was 99% Cram and Net producing the AWESOME.

Regardless, I DEFINITELY MUST OWN A COPY!!! [will order very soon]

I'm curious if there are any sections, pieces, illustrations that you guys dig in particular.



this book contains a lot of cut-ups and other forms of juxtapositional art. I'm curious if you guys have any impressions of those beyond "what is this, word salad?" -- hint: it's not traditional prose, but it's sure not word salad either!

I like my clipart pieces that I posted. The think of three of your friends one has nice layout

The book feels more like a cousin of PD then BIP (even with the cliffnotes)
Look, asshole:  Your 'incomprehensible' act, your word-salad, your pinealism...It BORES ME.  I've been incomprehensible for so long, I TEACH IT TO MBA CANDIDATES.  So if you simply MUST talk about your pineal gland or happy children dancing in the wildflowers, go talk to Roger, because he digs that kind of shit

WTF! Your copy arrived before mine did?? crazy bastard

I'm also looking for suggestions about how to get the word out, spread the good news that there's a new Discordian book out.

The 50th anniversary of Discordia passed and barely anybody noticed, this is my way of making sure the embers are still hot. Part of this means activating all the sleeper Discordians out there, both the ones that know of Her and the ones that don't know they're popes yet.

I have no idea how kindle formatting works


ETA: stored for later reference - some pithy copy

Quote
The Et Cetera Discordia celebrates the 50th anniversary of Eris' return. It's a collage, a cut-up of essays, images, articles, rants, sermons, and koans, created by the contemporary Discordian Society. And it's freaking fantastic.

Might be a good idea to post this, pd and bip to Project gutenberg
Seems there's a converter to .mobi

Eta:
Nevermind it can manually convert it but its stored at full size and has to convert each page...
