:fnord:Yeah, with Roger sat at the middle of it all, like some huge, bloated Machiavellian Spider, at the center of the web, bristling with sensory mind lasers, and a H.I.M.E.O.B.S  T Shirt on. And a look of profound innocence on his face. :fnord: :jebus:

We'll have to get him a mitre and a staff then.... :lulz:
:roflcake:
Or a Motor, and a stiff.

A motor would be a nice gift, but don't know about the corpse. A little to grimmm/kvlt/depraved for my gift preferences.

Aaah, ok, I kinda lost the OP in all of the replies.

Quote
The idea is to send 1,000 letters to Playboy in which we attempt to connect every known conspiracy theory to a specific Discordian cabal. So who's in?

Did you mean each conspiracy we cite is connected to a different cabal, or that they are all the machinations of a single cabal (the former is a tad more believable).


I got the sense that all conspiracies were tied to one specific (the Tucson) cabal. As far as conspiracies go, I think more centralized is better. Maybe there can be a compromise, that specific cabals are responsible for specific things, but all answer to one master cabal like it's the Vatican?

@ Twid - I should have said that your reasons for sitting back were different than mine (damned parenthesis don’t infer shit… crap! Did it again!).  I know you’re just waiting til the voices for these guys get established.  Thanks for the encouragement, all the good info, the explanation about 'Eridian' and *good luck on your finals*.  You're good beans.

I get the sense that Illuminatus! needs to be read several times to fully appreciate it for the literary work that it is, Discordianism aside.

 :cry:  So I'm guessing this won't cut it for Cole's notes?  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TxWTy1ilH4M

tl;dr - Twid: 7 times???;

Thanks for the well wishes. I know I'm going to blast the crap out of one of them, the other I'm not sure about (finals)
Never read notes on Illuminatus! [edit: saw or watched, but will go for that link on Thursday], just kinda went with my own impressions and based on memory of the first reading (like good songs, you get out of it what you decide to get out of it, based on what knowledge of whatever I've accumulated in the interim and guess work).
Not sure what the 7 times refers to, but again, my last post in "What makes you happy right now" makes mention of Sam Adams. I should probably log off now, lol. If it refers to something in this thread, I must have mistyped something that I can't recall at the moment.

I think we should avoid any obvious 'Discord' memes (but they're good placeholders), as Hef will(might?) probably remember who R.A.W. was.

You know, the more I hear people saying that we shouldn't do anything that would lead someone back to this board the more I think that's exactly what we should be doing. Isn't everyone always saying that we need more media exposure? How else are we supposed to get it? The actual discussions that are going on on this board are way spookier than any conspiracy theory we could ever come up with. Think about, we're a bunch of people intentionally trying to cause chaos and confusion.

And what is up with this don't mention RAW stuff anyway? Do you really think Hef personally remembers every teeny tiny detail about everyone he's ever employed and everything those people have ever written? This is Playboy for crying out loud! He's been in this business for like 55 years now and in all that time, how often has the word "Eris" ever been used in the magazine? I bet even Playboy's review of Illuminatus! doesn't mention Her and yet, magically, everybody here really thinks that the people who answer the letters (who may not have even been born when these books were written) will automatically spot the joke as soon as they see that name? Come ooooon! Besides, seeing as how we're creating DIY conspiracy theories, we might as well drop all references to Discordians and just blame everything on the Catholics and Masons (like really real conspiracy theorists do).

Oh and by the way, this line is classic

Trust only the bunnies, Hef.  They are, as ever, blameless.

The creepy thing is that phenomenon you're talking about actually exists, in a way. A recent study suggested that the reason why people find it so hard to avoid texting while driving is that dopamine is actually released to the brain when you get a text message. I think we may need to simplify the "soup" you mentioned though, too many pharmaceutical terms may cause the eyes to glaze over. I'm finishing up a short story right now but I'm gonna get back to my original letter idea soon. I think that our next letter should come from "Eric Burke".


You do have a point here. I heard about Discordianism about 12 years ago, and yet here I am with approx. 100 posts now. I forgot about it for a long time. I actually stumbled here on a random google search that was unrelated to Discordianism about a year ago. And I signed up about 3 months ago (didn't post for a good while, but didn't read the threads either). Basically signed up for the GASMs. BTW, is anyone here (from the Metro Boston area) responsible for signs on Beacon St. for a lost grilled cheese that answers to the name "Fluffy"? It's old news, but just want to know. Almost called the number for shits and giggles, threatening to eat said sandwich if my demands weren't met.

really come on; F.O.E. ?
think they might get smart to what your attempting


This is good to know!  (taking the time to point out the fail - very appreciated)

I'm new to all this discordian stuff (no offense), don't know the history, never finished Illuminatus, and just found out yesterday that there's a history between your main guys and Hef.  Been reading non-stop for the past few months, but really I just like pranks, the trickster philosophy(ies) resonated, and I dove into this site when I found it.  Never occurred to me that F.O.E. would be a more obvious tip off than any of the other cabals listed in the link earlier in the thread.  Would just switching another cabal in there help, or is it doomed?


I think we should avoid any obvious 'Discord' memes (but they're good placeholders), as Hef will(might?) probably remember who R.A.W. was.

Really interesting...  Thinking I should take a cue from Twid and sit out 'til I get a better grip (on the history, what other people here are writing about, why this works as a prank, etc.).  Instructions for this were to take already established conspiracy theories and tie them in to Discordian cabals, so my approach was pretty much just cut-paste, but actual discordians will know what are obvious memes and what to avoid.

Back to the readin'.  :lol:

I recommend that any references to Eris (if necessary) be referred to as Eridian rather than Discordian or Erisian. Eridian is actually correct (as opposed to Erisian which means nothing) and makes the characters seem more pedantic (yes I realize I'm condemning myself as a pedant by saying this), like a pseudointellectual would say, and makes him/them seem like an outsider. Maybe for a cabal name, say The Ancient and Worshipful Order of Erebus, or something like that. You should be involved, I'll be involved as much as I can, my sitting out is more due to get a consistency in writing style. Honestly, I think you're on a roll, and that the vets here will be able to give you guidance on already good ideas.

Just as a side note, I interrupted my first rereading of Illuminatus! because my semester started. I took notes with a pencil in the side margins to keep track of ideas that were brought forth, not for Discord's sake, but to make better sense of it. I get the sense that Illuminatus! needs to be read several times to fully appreciate it for the literary work that it is, Discordianism aside. Hell they poke fun at themselves for being drugged out hippies, include a negative book review that is the exact description of the trilogy, and has a hell of an ending. It literally made me laugh out loud when Joe Malik delivered that line in the sub (I was on lunch break at work). Not gonna give it away, but you should read it and appreciate it for what it is. Gonna get back to my note taking after Thursday (tomorrow) when I'm done with finals.

If you insisted on taking out a former Black Sabbath singer you could've at least gone after someone expendable like Glenn Hughes.  Nobody would miss him. 

Fucking LOL!

Can you still read our texts with all those tears in your eyes about how MEAN we all are?

Yeah, you are all quite mean. At least one admits it. By the way, you have nice spacy avatar picture. I bet you are friendly spacy dutch guy who is not that mean at all! Keep up the good work!

He doesn't need to read the fonts, default or not, his cat's eye infra red mind control lasers, can detect your  "Sobfailsob"  font, even though you are half way up an Alp, drinking Stella Artois, and comfort eating chocolate cuckoo clocks in lederhosen.

(Probably)

I had to look up "Stella Artois". Very clever, beer from Belgium. I have to try.
But you have forgotten the so called Reduit plan. The alps are full of bunkers which have given quite comfortable protection from laser cats for around eight centuries. I'm warning you. You are about to get a Swiss guy angry. Your bank account could be cancelled over night.
Ok, this "my nation is better" thing is already kind of worn out. I'll think of another one.

Should be "have given sufficiently comfortable protection from laser cats for the past eight centuries"

"Ok, this "my nation is better" thing is already kind of worn out. I'll think of another one."
Join the EU already. Oh wait, hahahah, no, don't do that just yet. (Speaking as a dual citizen with Ireland/EU)

Most of us, I reckon, don't have swiss bank accounts. All of mine are in the US. Because I'm poor and have no reason for tax evasion.

I suppose this officially makes Klaus Meine the shortest guy in metal. 

I think that Glenn Danzig is just a smidge shorter, but I could be wrong

I shudder to think what "family" WB is referring to.

Sorry, the "evil grandpa" role is already appointed to roger.

Thus far I've had no problems with Roger.

Dio was/is the best metal vocalist of all time. 

Huge loss.   

My vote would have been for Bruce Dickinson, but then again, I'm a total tard for Maiden. Nevertheless, terrible loss. And as far as Ozzy, that dude is impossible to kill. By all accounts he should have died in the 80s.

RIP Dio.

It is really funny when you think about it that way too. Has the sort of implication that these characters think that Hef can actually do something about it. This looks like a job for Hugh Hefner! Activate the Bunny Signal!

Fucking yes!
