Important doctrinal question-- does "Repent, Quit Your Job, and Slack Off" imply a strict ordering of those actions, or can they be done in any order? Can you quit your job, then repent, then slack off and achieve the same effect?

I couldn't take it any longer. I had to leave the Facebook Subgenius groups. The upside is this is now my only online Subgenius community to keep up with, so I should be able to do better at that.

Tell her she can kiss my ass and laugh and say that you were only kidding, that way she'll know that it was really, really me.

The woman in front of me tells her little son: "Don't do that! Playing with your shadow is dangerous!"

If only she knew that ignoring your shadow is even more dangerous.

Come, ye pharaohs! Let us walk through this barren desert in search of truth and some pointy boots (and maybe a few snack crackers).

I paid "Bob" my $35 and all I got was this lousy total liberation from the social constructions of work and obligation.

"Buddha is dead. Maitreya hasn't come yet. I just had a terrific nap and didn't even dream about Confucius." --Hotei "The Laughing Buddha"

The Church of the SubGenius is willing to make exceptions to hard and fast rules when the evidence supports such a change. As a whole, one should quit one's job for "Bob". But...

If you need an excuse to make an excuse, you’re already one layer too deep. Just do things, for “no reason.” The rational mind is for rationalizations, not rationality. I’m not saying if it feels good do it, I’m saying that action can happen. Disimmobilize! You no longer need to wait for permission. No guarantee you’ll get it right, but you will get it going. Start moving and course correct. Make up some fool explanation at the end if you want, but go! Cross the starting line. Spread the word!

Been away from Dobbs.Town for a while, because I've been playing with the happy oddities over at Dobbscord and on FreeThinkRadio. I've been gathering a bit of a reputation for my ranting and freely given Dobbs "wisdom", and although I did not look for it, I have been given the appelate "Reverend", as in " Rev. ClayGhoul ". I'm honestly surprised that they are so impressed by what I say...I merely let Dobbs stream out of me.

"Bob" set me free from a lot, including my assigned gender, which is why I find the regular drumbeat of transphobia among Subgenii pretty weird.

I get the feeling that the next few days will test how much I've internalized my Subgenius indoctrination. The will to take things seriously and act like I have control is great, but my Slack is holding for now.

James Randi has been my ShorDurPerSav in the past. Anyone who sticks their finger in the eyes of that many knuckleheads is a-ok with me. And he never did come after no Subgenius, because he knew we were the real deal, a joke, and even realer deal.

Sat my Subgenius ass down with my Subgenius wife and her Subgenius boyfriend and absolutely loved "J.R. 'Bob' Dobbs And The Church Of The Subgenius". What a treat to see so many people who've only been voices or names on a podcast to me, but who have all collectively cultivated the art, wit, and wisdom that made my life as rich and wild as it has been. I only wish there'd been even more material brought into the story.
