You should replace "Hollywood" with "RIAA and MPAA" if that's what you're getting at.

My mother explained the two party system to me thusly:

Republicans think that Government ruins everything it touches; Democrats think that Big Business ruins everything it touches. They're both right.

Apple Talk / Re: Uncomfortable topics: Let's talk about race

So here is a question. Where I live my children and I are the minority.  I have found, on more than one occasion, that the prejudice is rarely, if ever, in our favor.  Yet if I bring it to anyone's attention, I'm the one called racist. 

For example, when we were robbed recently the black officer actually asked "What did you expect, moving into this neighborhood?"  My response was "What?  Because I'm white I should expect to be robbed?" to which he just shrugged.

I think anytime anyone regardless of race or religion is treated with prejudice it is wrong.
Wow. The point isn't "because I'm white, I should expect to be robbed" but rather a whoooole slew of fucked up attitudes on behalf of the cop:
1. Because you're white, you don't belong in that neighborhood
2. That hood (where whites don't belong and therefore, must be populated with non-whites) is one where robbery is expected and normal
3. Only non-whites have a good reason/excuse for being in a neighborhood where robbery is expected and normal
1) Because you clearly don't like getting robbed, you don't belong
2) This place has a statistically observable higher instance of crimes like theft
3) If you don't like getting robbed, maybe you should not live somewhere with a pre-existing high crime rate

It's easy for white folks to jump on the "OTHER PEOPLE ARE RACIST TOO!" idea, but the fact is that even if you have to deal with racial prejudice in your local area as a white person, chances are pretty good that a) your family hasn't been subjected to those pressures for hundreds of years, resulting in fewer opportunities for socio-economic advancement and b) it's just your local area, and you still reap the benefits of being a white person in a predominantly white society on a larger scale.

Anything that had a copyright on it before I got my grubby paws on it retains those things. If I forget to credit you, please yell and I will correct it.

Anything I create, write, draw, or mash together is yours to use however you like on the strict conditions that you do not credit me in any way.

It's a fictional religion started in the 1950s as a joke that got way the hell out of control and implanted itself into our reality. It has no meaningful definition, no hierarchy, and no membership. It's about accepting the fact that the world is a chaotic, nonsensical place and making your own happiness within that, or it's about the forces of destructive order battling the forces of creative disorder, or it's about how we are able to perceive the universe; or it's just a bunch of stuff scribbled in the margins. Also, you're a Pope. Good luck with that.

Anyone who doesn't believe birds are dinosaurs needs to go see an ostrich in person. First time I saw one I was struck by the inside of the wing, where you can clearly tell it's just an arm with some feathers glued on. Really, though, the T-Rex feet on pigeons should suffice.

Here's one of the law of fives:
The parable of the bitter tea: (DINOSAURS ARE NOT KOPYLEFT)

Not embedded because it breaks the fuck out of your layout. If there's demand for it I can make lower-res copies for posting online, these are ginormous for printing purposes.

ETA: imageshack is dead, fuck those guys forever. Uploading to imgur and replacing links as I go.

MORE ETA: Most of these images were made before I gave two shits about copyright. I've gotten better, but the old work hasn't all been replaced with responsibly-sourced stuff yet. I'll do my best to include big warnings for the versions that are not kopyleft and replace what I can.

So, what's the actual pitch on these? Are you trying to recruit existing discordian leaning peoples to the forums, or convert normal cabbages?

Would it be possible to do something where the older essays were integrated with new material and repackaged as a full book, silly and serious and all? Not full pages copied as-is from the PD and BIP with tidbits at the end, that didn't work well in the Steve Jackson release IMO. I only ask because I'm mostly done with a personal project on that theme, and having a substantial amount of layout work done tends to help people move a little faster on submissions.

Also, I can totally do layout, if no one else has called dibs.

Principia Discussion / Re: What Makes You Not a Discordian?

I would argue that you can be a Discordian inasmuch as someone can be a Christian, but you cannot be a Discordian in the same way that you could be Catholic. A Discordian1 would be a person who believes in some or all of the Discordian belief set and lives by it to some extent, whereas a Discordian2 would be a member of a practicing body with structure and whatnot. Any group of Discordians1 could attempt to create an organization of Discordians2, but by its nature it would not be something that included all Discordians1 and therefore could not be a definitive answer to who is and who is not Discordian, and so they'd end up being something else altogether: Discordianchurch of the hyperbolic metaphor or something.
