“The End of the Beginning” issue
WIKIPEDIA SAYS WE’RE A KEEPER!
The debate is ended: the decision was made on the Wikipedia article “Discordian Works,” which
features a description of Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht--the article stays!
Thanks to all those faithful Wikipedian Discordians who gave reasons why the article, which now
also tells about Book 5 (The Zenarchist’s CookBook), A Discordian Coloring Book, Novus Ordo
Discordia, and Summa Universalia, should not be deleted. But given the volatile nature of
Wikipedia, it could be up for deletion again tomorrow. So see it while you still can at www.en.
wikipedia.org/wiki/Discordian_Works, or see a version on our site at discordia.loveshade.
A NEW SUBDOMAIN
We’ll be working soon on our new subdomain at 23 Apples of Eris! We still aren’t sure what our
subdomain will be called, but will let you know. If you haven’t checked Prince Mu-Chao’s site yet,
visit it at www.23ae.com. Don’t be discouraged if you can’t link to it the first time--Mu-Chao is in the
process of revamping some things to make a great site even better.
INTERVIEW SAID WHAT?
We are hopeful that the interview with our Episkopos Reverend Loveshade will be posted publicly
online soon! Professional freelance writer Adam Newton interviewed the Rev. about our group,
our site, our philosophy, our politics, and our legal problems. We’ll let you know when you can
finally read the interview, hopefully soon.
EK-SEN-TRIK-KUH DISCORDIA: WHAT?
We had a lot of suggestions for the complete name for our book, which included (take a deep
breath) Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia; Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht; Ek-sen-trik-
kuh Discordia: The Tails of Shamlicht; Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Myths of Shamlicht; Ek-sen-
trik-kuh Discordia: The Myths of Shamlicht? (yes, with a question mark); Harmonia Discordia; and
Discordia Harmonia. But we had more votes for one title than the others: Ek-sen-trik-kuh
Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht. It shows our Ek-sen-trik and Discordian roots, and is a joke
reference to the “tails” that the bonobo apes gave to digest and spread. And it’s already listed that
way on several sites, which makes it easy. And Shamlicht is relatively easy to type into a search
engine. So be it!
POETIC INHERITANCE IN TOILET HELL?
The results are in for the submissions “Who the Hell is E?” by Reverend Loveshade,
“Harmonian-Discordian Poetry” from Principia Harmonia and by the Mythics of Harmonia, and
"Inheritance Scam" by Anonymous--they’re in the book! We had mixed feelings on "The Sacred
Bowel Movement" by Dr. Sinister Craven. Some liked the humor and references, others thought
we already had enough potty stuff. So the Hell article has already been posted to our site, and the
Poetry and Scam will appear soon, hopefully this month. The Movement will go, for now, in Xtra
BEGINNING OF THE END FOR REVEREND LOVESHADE?
There's been an Internet rumor that Reverend Loveshade is a pseudonym for Robert Anton
Wilson, and that e is on his death bed. Let us put this rumor to bed--we mean to rest. While no
one can accurately predict the future (other than GameMaster Loveshade), we are hopeful to
see new Discordian/Illuminated/Socio-political writings and rants and humor for years to come. Be
in good health!
The mysterious overseas benefactor came through, and Danacasso has a new computer! Our
Minister of Deviant Art is working hard at figuring out how to use it (“Now what do I do with this three-
foot long thin black snaky-looking thing with the square head with two teeth that look like flat
prongs?”), but we look forward to some cool artwork soon!
NUDE CARTOON PRINCESS
As of right now, a search on search.netzero.net for nude cartoon princess yields us as the third
listed site. We have no idea why.
NEW STUFF BEGINNING ON OUR SITE
In addition to “Who the Hell is E?” and “Discordian Works” mentioned above, we’ve posted “The
Myth of the Nipples” by Max Flax Beeblewax, "The Cloved Lemon Kissing Game" by Princess
Unicornia and Reverend Loveshade, and have added descriptions of Pet Loving Day,
Multiversal Underwear Day, and Shamlicht Kids Club Day since our last Snooze Letter, in addition
to slightly revising various other parts of our site.
END OF OLD THE MARY DAY BEGINNING OF THE NEW?
Princess Unicornia and Fairy Princess Yoshikyoko have suggested an addition to The Mary
Day (proposed addition is in italics). Let us know what you think by 12 July 2006, although St. The
Mary will make the final decision:
PROPOSED NEW HOLYDAY: TOWEL DAY
We recently learned that, since shortly after The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy author Douglas
Adams died in 2001, Towel Day has been celebrated on May 25. (If you don’t know, every
hitchhiker should always know where es towel is). We have some strong ties to the Guide. Ek-sen-
triks CluborGuild co-founding Vice President Alien was known as a alien hitchhiking writer (like
Guide contributor Ford Prefect), and our own missing member and galactic hitchhiker BloodStar
was a contributor to the online version of the Guide, which is about as Discordian of a work you
could find outside of Discordianism itself. Come to think of it, BloodStar and Douglas Adams have
both been missing since 2001. Coincidence? In any case, let us know by 12 July 2006 if you want
Towel Day added as a holyday, or let us know if you don’t.
(Details can be found at discordia.loveshade.org/ek-sen-trik-kuh/holydays)
THE BEGINNING OR END FOR NEW STUFF?
We have some attached submissions for you to consider. Please email us your opinions by 12 July
2006 for "Illuminati Chess" by Reverend Loveshade; "The Discordian Haiku" by John Wilkes
Harvey Oswald (this isn't a formal submission, but an idea for submissions of Discordian Haiku--
we're trying to get hold of the author); and "Smagmoid Anagrams" by Brother Kob (which tries to
answer the question, "What does smagmoid really mean, anyway?")
