I've misplaced my copy of An Erisian Prayer
I seem to have misplaced the image of "An Erisian Prayer," and cannot find it on Google. Does anyone have a copy to point me to or send to me? It's the one that goes like this.Collapse )

Thanks in advance!

Discordian Date program?
Is there a downloadable program, like an .exe or similar, that when open displays the Discordian Date for the day? I'd really appreciate something like that.

My main computer has Windows XP, the other one is an Apple.

YOGAP RADIO!!!
For those who don't know yet, I have a cyberfunded creativity project going called "Ye Olde Goldyn Appyl Presse." It is a fake newspaper with a Discordian flavor, as it takes place in a universe similar to ours, but much more interesting, bizarre, and magical. Anything can (and often does) happen there. YOGAP makes The Onion look boring and dull by comparison! You can click here for a couple free samples or click here to view the list of YOGAP features. But most of the action goes on in my LJ, where I pimp YOGAP features and post the funded projects.

In fact, I just completed a Ye Olde Goldyn Appyl Presse radio show! It consists of a welcome, a fake ad, a breaking news bit, and the ending. The whole thing is almost 4 minutes long. I hope to upload it to YouTube. But if you want to hear it, I'm asking for $4! That's just $4! Once I've gotten $4, everyone will be able to hear it whether they contributed to it or not. Every dollar helps!

It was a lot of work, but I'm only asking $4 for it because I hope to post it on YouTube and use it in part as advertisement for the whole YOGAP project. Once released, embedding will be ENCOURAGED.

CLICK HERE TO GET TO THE DONATE BUTTON

You know, I like this idea so much I might do other features of YOGAP in a radio version, like "Celebrity Interview" with Vick Shunnel. :-)

Boojum runs loose on LiveJournal
By = Amanda Sukmi Cox

Pungenday, day 40 in the season of Discord, 3175 Year of Our Lady of Discord - In yet another case to get LiveJournal users' goat, it has been discovered today that a Boojum is running loose in the wires and servers of LiveJournal, using the wires to eat people from all around the world. A side effect of this heinous act is the disappearance of content from certain users' posts.

I asked Boojum expert, Mr. Bat Pennitar from the Evil Goatee Universe, why this was the case. After stroking his goatee with an evil grin on his face for several minutes, he finally said with a voice much like that of Carlos Montalban, "Because, you see, the Boojum is an animal that can live either in the real world or online. It needs a port of entry, a portal from one world to the other. This is similar to the creatures known as Internet Trolls, though those are really humans who have become infected by the bite of another Internet Troll. When the light of the computer monitor hit them, they turn into Internet Trolls. But I digress." He paused to stroke his goatee and grin wickedly for a few more minutes before continuing, "A Boojum is not human and has never been human. They are ferocious monsters from the Bottomless Pits of The Bible Belt, created in the darkness by something called 'schlin,' which is the oppisite of 'sin.' It is when people, usually highly religious, resist temptations of the flesh and other things they consider sins. Of course, 'sin' does not exist, but schlin most definetely does. It congeals in dark places like a white slime because it is a substance made from denial and repression."

He stopped to stroke his beard and grin wickedly again, then laughed maniacally before continuing. "Boojums used to be extremely common, but now their numbers have been dwindling, at least in the United States, Australia, Canada, and Europe, because of decreasing numbers of people living in fear of sin. But as their numbers diminish, they get scared and lash out. They have lately taken to getting online and trying to reverse the conditions which are threatening them, with the help of some groups of Internet Trolls called Fundies, and other means. In fact, I have seen them targeting individuals, even eating the content from their posts.

"Now as I said, Boojums eat people. But they can only eat people who emit schlin. Those who are not repressed and fearful of sinning are protected by this from direct attacks by Boojums. But indirect attacks, ranging from eating the content of their posts to posessing Internet Trolls, are aimed at trying to convert the target individual to a life of schlin. As long as these individuals continue to resist, they will be fine. A little annoyed, perhaps, but fine. Now, if you will pardon me, I just got a call from my pet midget, telling me that my plane is landing now." He cackled with glee and vanished in a puff of weasels.

I tried to speak with LiveJournal officials today about the Boojum in the wires, but they seemed reluctant to speak. My Russian is a tad rusty, but I believe they said something about not wanting me around while they're eating dinner. Well, something about "Don't come in while I'm masticating!" I guess they thought I was a telemarketer. Ah well.

So, it is not known how soon the Boojum will be flushed out, but Mr. Bat Pennitar *did* give me the business card for a very good Boojum removal service: "Boojum Jockey's: Let BJ Come For You!"

More updates as we have them.

A Glossary of Terms for Surviving the End Tmes, Aftermath, YOLD 3175
DISCORDIANISM: Like Wicca, it started off as a religion for pot-smoking hippie bums who wanted to pass off their bullshit as a philosophical statement. The key difference was it was full of jokes plagiarized from the Marx brothers. Somewhere along the line, like many obscure things that deserved to stay obscure, it got co-opted by sweaty, anime-downloading computer nerds and has become some stupid inside joke on message boards full of assholes, giving it as much meaning and significance as All Your Base Are Belong To Us.

THE CHURCH OF THE SUBGENIUS: Discordians who get bored of saying “Fnord” and “Hail Eris” and wanted to make up new nonsense phrases and pretend like saying them while giggling was a constructive act of activism. Eternal Salvation or Your Money Back.

THE PRINCIPIA DISCORDIA: Between “My First ABCs” and “The Essential Guide to Star Wars Ships” in terms of literary importance. Fnord.

THE BOOK OF THE SUBGENIUS: Like the Principia Discordia, only 100 pages longer, and it costs 20 bucks instead of being able to find it on Google.

THE ILLUMINATUS TRILOGY: A plagiarism of Joyce’s work filled with nerdy pop culture references and pretentious rantng about how things like "maps" are not things like "the territory".

SCHRODINGER’S CAT: A plagiarism of Vonnegut’s work filled with nerdy pop culture references and pretentious ranting about flying penises.

ROBERT ANTON WILSON: A man who has accumulated a small fortune selling plagiarisms of Joyce and Vonnegut filled with nerdy pop culture references with pretentious ranting.

MALACLYPSE THE YOUNGER: Some “wacky” nom de plume of a man who probably wrote The Principia Discordia in a stained tie-dye T-shirt on a bongwater-stained couch while listening to a highly worn LP of Freak Out!, The White Album, or The Piper at the Gates of Dawn. Wasn’t smart enough to copyright his work so probably died alone and penniless on a gutter while clenching a Coke bottle pipe filled with schwag, while his buddy Robert Anton Wilson eats steak for dinner in his dining room.

KERRY THORNLEY/LORD OMAR/A BILLION OTHER STUPID PSEUDONYMS: Wrote ten crazy Xeroxed rants about Libertarianism and thought his friends were agents of the Illuminati, now posthumously considered a genius.

STEVE JACKSON: The poster boy for the official point of transformation of the vast majority (ie: 40) of Discordians changing from hippie slackers to D&D nerds who wish they could have been alive to be hippie slackers like their parents.

FNORD: A word invented to be used in the boring, pointless signatures, “hilarious” spam, and half-hearted graffiti of Discordians. Might have been a slightly funny inside joke between RAW, Thornley, and Malaclypse, but the Internet beat it into the ground like it does to everything.

23: The fact that that number can sometimes be seen somewhere is proof of an elaborate evil conspiracy/magical cosmic force that protects and strengthens all Discordians. Skidoo!

THE BAVARIAN ILLUMINATI: The 19th century version of the Discordians. IE: They had great ideas but we’re too lazy and fuckwitted and unorganized to get anything done so instead they just made a bunch of bullshit. So obviously the Discordian society idolizes them.

THE POEE: 12.235 members strong.

THE DISCORDIAN SOCIETY: π^18 members strong.

WWW.PRINCIPIADISCORDIA.COM: An expensive domain name that somebody pays for solely to host a 60-page book that can be found for a yardsale at 25 cents, or in it’s entirity on the first 13 pages of a Google search. In other word, a nerd who felt the obligation to make a site that wasn’t about what bands they like or how similar to Hitler Bush is.

ERISIANS: Discordians who insist on being called something else to be difficult. Those Spags.

ERIS/DISCORDIA: There is a disagreement among Discordians and Erisians as to her nature. Discordians think she’s a cartoon character with magic powers who help them out and who they fantasize to while masturbating, (that is, when they’re too lazy to open up their porn folder or turn to the Dryad page of the D&D Monster Manual). Erisians think the same thing although they sprinkle it with some Taoist metaphysical bullshit.

OPERATION MINDFUCK: A way to make the world a better place that apparently involves trolling conservative communities, writing notes on bathroom walls, making up little pieces of paper that say “LOL U R TEH POPE” and being too afraid to hand them out to people, and contemplating all of these brilliant ideas on a message board and being too lazy to do any of them.

JAKE: Like a mindfuck except more childish, if that’s possible.

WWW.POEE.CO.UK: A website with a professional-looking appearance and informative content. This makes it’s owner Syntapgjax, a Fake Discordian, since obviously the definition of “Discordian” is “someone who can’t get their shit together.”

FAKE DISCORDIAN: A term thrown around a lot for practitioners of a religion that embraces ontological freedom and equality. It’s actually a redundant term.

“WE DISCORDIANS MUST STICK APART”: An excuse for not having your shit together.

"STICKING APART IS MORE FUN WHEN WE DO IT TOGETHER!": An excuse for not having your shit together along with a bunch others at the same location.

CHAOS MAGIC: If Wicca is people who need an authority figure to give their minds permission to use magic adopting 'books form Barnes and Noble' as such, than Chaos Magic is the same, only with Google, Alice in Wonderland, and Swordfighting in the Park.

ZENARCHY: A term used by Discordians who have to pretend they’re too enlightened to use terms like “Anarchist” to describe their political belief, so they use a term that sounds deep but is actually an unfunny portmanteau, like “Zenarchist” so they can pretend they’re too cool for politics. Because we Are.

THE LAW OF FIVES: An important lesson in epistemological relativism becomes an inside joke among people on the internet who contemplate why the limpidity of your objections ever motivates our hunger.

COPYRITE/KOPYRIGHT/KOPYRITE/COPYLEFT/KOPYLEFT: A term that’s obviously Discordian because of the lame pun. Spawned Wikipedia, which is what sexless nerds use as an authoritative source of knowledge, in the same way imperialist intellectual elitists used the Britannica.

DISCORDIAN SAINT: Someone who the government hasn’t forced to take their medsmedia yet.

THE PRINCIPIA DISCORDIA.COM FORUMS: Where you can read jokers bickering like the cast of MASH towards the end of the show and pretending that they’re better than 95 percent of DeadJournal users somehow. Also full of long, drawn out, pointless rants that just reiterate the same uninsightful points. Discordians are nerds who don’t have enough sex. Strangely enough 95% of them are smoking hot, and 60% of those are female..., 1% of which have fetishes for men in Richard Nixon masks.

There's been some debate on the irreality forums[irreality.net] about some technical terminology like biosphere, and noosphere. Hopefully, this will stir up an appropriate ant's nest.

Non-Local Mind

Bell's Theorem demonstrated a connection-or-correlation between systems that are not causally related. That is, it entirely contradicts an assumption which governed science from Newton to Einstein--the assumption that all scientific laws must express a kind of "billiard-ball" model of the world, in which every moving ball is only influenced by the balls with which it collides. Bell's math demonstrated that some sort of non-local "field" or perhaps an "implicate order" controlled the balls even if they had no mechanical connection with each other.

Nick Herbert liked to call this non-local relationship "the Cosmic Glue."

Saul Paul Sirag, another physicist, showed me a paper by Dr. E.H. Walker, "The Compleat Quantum Anthropologist," which argued that mind, like quantum systems, functions non-locally. This made sense to me because all systems that divide mind from matter lead to intractable paradoxes. It also made sense because it gave me, for the first time, a model that could explain some of my more "cosmic" LSD experiences. Dr. Walker's paper started me thinking in terms of a Local Self, inside space-time, and a Non-Local Self, outside space-time. This may have been what the Zen Master, Sensaki, meant when he spoke of Little Mind and Big Mind. Such a model not only accounted for LSD voyages but it also made a good container for all the confusing phenomena which parapsychologists put into separate bags and call ESP, precognition, out of body experience, synchronicity--all the strange "psychic" events that have dogged me all my life (which I can no longer attribute to the Atheist's God, Mr. Random Chance).

In terms of Walker's interpretation of Bell's Theorem, all of these non-Newtonian aberrations merely represent sudden information flow from Non-Local Mind to Local Mind.

Jack Johnson - Never Know
I heard this old story before
Where the people keep on killing for their metaphors
But don't leave much up to the imagination,
So I, wanna give this imagery back
But I know it just ain’t so easy like that
So I turn the page and read the story again
and again and again
It sure seems the same, with a different name
We're breaking and rebuilding
and we're growing
always guessing

Never knowing
We're shocking but we're nothing
We're just moments, we're Clever but we're clueless
We're just human, amusing and confusing
Were trying but where is this all leading?
We'll Never Know

It all happened so much faster than you could say disaster
Wanna take a time lapse and look at it backwards
Find the last one and maybe that’s just the answer that we're after
But after all we're just a bubble in a boiling pot
Just one breath in a chain of thought
We're moments just combusting
We feel certain but we'll never, never know
It sure seems the same, give it a different name
We're begging and we're needing
and we're trying and we're breathing

Never knowing
We're shocking but we're nothing
We're just moments, we're Clever but we're clueless
We're just human, amusing and confusing
We're helping, rebuilding and we're growing
Never Know

Knock, knock coming door to door
To tell ya that their metaphor is better than yours
And you can either sink or swim things are looking pretty grim
If you don’t believe in what they're spoon feeding
Its got no feeling so I read it again and again and again

It sure seems the same so many different names
Our hearts are strong our heads are weak
We'll always be competing

Never knowing
We're shocking but we're nothing
We're just moments, we're Clever but we're clueless
We're just human, amusing and confusing
But the truth is all we got is questions
We'll Never Know
Never Know
Never Know

OK - here's the deal. I want to get the name Omar Khayyam Ravenhurst said on-air, on BBC radio 1.

Here's what you should do.

1- Sign Omar Khayyam Ravenhurst up for any and all junk mail you can. Fill in web forms!
(you can find information on him here: http://jubal.westnet.com/hyperdiscordia/lord_omar_biography.html )
His e-mail address is Ravenhurst5@hotmail.com
Use whatever real-world address seems appropriate to you.

2- When signing Omar Khayyam Ravenhurst up to receive his free sample of washing powder, or asking some mailing house to send him details on their offers, leave this number as part of his details: 07770 756 408 . It is the Radio1 flirt divert number.
(more information here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/scottmills/flirtdivert.shtml )

3- Post this in your own journal, but do not say who you ganked it from. Encourage your friends, neighbours, school teachers, trusted enemies and pets to post this too.

The idea is that the radio 1 number will get innundated with calls from people offering them free soap powder, timeshare deals and new phone contracts. All in the name of Omar Khayyam Ravenhurst. Eventually they'll get so pissed off that they will mention his name on air, if only to call him a sad-act or something.

4- Run away giggling, or not.

5- Rinse, wash, repeal

Writing Contest / Magazine
Maybe my pineal gland is overreacting to the morphine, but wasn't there a writing contest being plugged here last year? Some literary compilation that someone put together annually and... maybe it got plugged here or... somewhere else... In any case, if anyone knows of any writing contests or literary magazines that accept submissions from total lamers like myself and my academic peers, I'd love to know about it. I could've sworn there existed some lit mag done in Malaclypse's memory.

Leary's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
So, I'm watching TMNT2 the movie, live-action, yah, that one. Mainly because my gf's 7yr old has never seen them (we watched the first one on Thurs). So we're grooving on the lighthearted comedy, and the decent martial arts (if you can call choreography in large foam suits decent), when I happen to mention to Olivia that Donitello seems to have taken a dominant 3rd circuit imprint. We immediately peg Michelangelo as the 4th circuit hedonist, and Raphael as the 2nd circuit emotionalist, leaving Leonardo as the 1st circuit survivalist badass.

The mapping to the RAW-Leary 8 circuit model seems crazily accurate. I suppose that means that Splinter's the 5th circuit neuro-adept, and that Shredder represents the Chapel Perilous, opposition to the journey to the higher 4.

I wonder if they'd map to the RAW theory linking the tarot suits to the 8 circuit model.

Just thought I'd mention that.
