The "Isn't That Amazing?" Issue

discordia.loveshade.org

This being the Isn't that Amazing Issue, in which a couple of our members propose a holyday to a
couple of churches,  author Adam Gorightly has a request, our Episkopos gets interviewed, a Discordian
is discovered at the top of Wikipedia, and a Major Discovery is foreshadowed.


AMAZING BOOKS AND ADAM GORIGHTLY

At the suggestion of author Adam Gorightly, we'll be adding a section to the discordia.loveshade.org
site featuring some fascinating and enlightening books.  We definitely plan to include Gorightly's tome
The Prankster and the Conspiracy, The Story of Kerry Thornley and How He Met Oswald and
Inspired the Counterculture
, which has a forward by Robert Anton Wilson.  For those who've been
living isolated in a cave for 50 years,
Kerry Thornley was one of the creators of Discordianism, and
was investigated in regard to the assassination of U. S. President
John F. Kennedy.  We plan to add a
section of books we recommend to our site, not as a favor to Gorightly, who is one of our favorite
"crackpot historians" (we mean that in a good way), but as a favor to our readers.  
The Prankster and
the Conspiracy
is an excellent book, one of the best sources for anyone who wants to know more about
the roots of Discordianism.

Quite amazing:
Principia Discordia is now available in hardback with a really cool cover!  Finally there's
an edition you can use as a weapon!  Look for it at
amazon.com or amazon.ca!


THE INTERVIEW

Reverend Loveshade is being interviewed!  It's being conducted by Rev St Pope Ol Boy Floats
KSC
who's asking questions of "some of the most prominent individuals in the field."  We aren't sure
which field--corn?  In any case, Floats plans to compile them in a book, which people can read in order
to be enlightened.  Or entertained.  Or maybe just to have something to look at when they're using the
toilet.  We'll give you more info when we get it.


DISCORDIANS  FOR JESUS/LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR DAY

Discordians for Jesus will be officially founded on Sunday, 25 March 2007.  It actually began in either
August or November of last year, when we had our
Summit Meeting to Determine World Rulership.  Nixie
Nurita and Sister Lorraine of Fairy Tree created it as a disorganization with no rules, other than you
should admire or even follow Jesus of Nazareth and Discordia.  Anyone can join--if you want to be a
member, you are a member.  And you can give yourself whatever office you want, too.

Surprisingly, the preteens have actually talked to officials in their respective churches about recognizing
Discordians for Jesus/Love Your Neighbor Day!  Although we suspect they only mentioned the "Love
your Neighbor Day" part.

Question for the masses: What relationship does March 25 have to one of the most major holidays of
the Christian Church?  You're allowed to use a calculator....


WIKIPEDIA WARS: DISCORDIAN WORKS STILL CONTROVERSIAL

The second effort to delete the article Discordian Works from the Wikipedia failed, and there was an
informal request for mediation, as we mentioned in the
last Snooze Letter.  But that's not the end of the
story.  It has now gone to the Arbitration Committee (ArbCom) with a request for them to make a ruling.  
Note that this is the highest group in all of Wikipedia, under Wikipedia founder
Jimbo Wales emself.  As
of right now, it appears that ArbCom may not accept it for arbitration, which means it may be decided in
a lower court.  All this for us Discordians?

But a nice thing is that one of the 13 active members of ArbCom,
Jpgordon, posted "Hail Eris" and
wrote to
Reverend Loveshade, "I fnord for a living."  So Discordians can reach the upper tiers of an
online bureaucracy?  Eris is up to those old dirty tricks.   You can see the article at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discordian_Works and the deletion discussion at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Discordian_Works_%282nd_nomination%29.  
The mediation discussion is at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Mediation_Cabal/Cases/2007-02-10_Discordian_Works, and the
ArbCom bit is at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Requests_for_arbitration we think, although we
didn't find it last time we looked.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUIT DAY

A Happy Birthday Suit Day to Princess Unicornia!  The Princess has worked on several significant
contributions to our on-going work
Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht; is the book's
Minister of Degenerate Art with Reverend Loveshade; and has a bottom we just can't resist spanking.  
Swat!  You can email b-day greetings to xxxxx@xxxxx.xxx (email address removed).


AMAZING DISCOVERY AND NEWD MEMBER

Shamlicht Kids Club co-founder Sister Hooter and the sister's assistant, Pope Hilde, have made an
amazing discovery: they have unearthed records that may show the identity of the blind Discordian
oracle in "
Five Blind Men and an Elephant," a major Discordian prophet-philosopher whose records
have been missing for centuries!  We can't reveal the details yet, but we anxiously await the report of
the two staff members of
Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception School for Unwed Mothers.


DECISION ON PROPOSED STUFF FOR THE BOOK

We got several responses to proposed writings for Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht.  
These were "
Animal Sex: Furry and Feathery" by Dr. Octopussy and Reverend Loveshade; "Five
Basic Beliefs: A Discordian Version
" by Reverend Loveshade and based on a piece by The
Loveshade Family; "The Golden Apple" by Reverend Loveshade; and "The Lawn" by the mythical
Gamemaster Loveshade.  The clear consensus was favorable toward them all, so they'll be in the
book.  By the way, do the names of most of these authors seem to have something in common?  Can't
quite put my finger on what it is....

PROPOSED STUFF FOR THE BOOK

Another Snooze Letter or two, and this feature may vanish, as Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of
Shamlicht nears completion.  What will we do after that?  Don't worry; we'll think of something.

We have decided to send future submissions only to those who request to review them.  The reason for
this is simple: we have a lot of them that we want to go through relatively quickly so we can finish the
book. But we don't want to burden our subscribers with lots of attachments they don't want.  So let us
know by 4 April 2007 if you want to be able to review future submissions.  See directions for emailing us
below.

For now we have more submissions for you to consider for inclusion in our book!  (Note that all these
have already gone through initial screenings; yours is the final decision!  Also note that the only way to
receive these is to subscribe to our Snooze Letter--see below)  These are
I am a Jelly Doughnut, which
reviews that famous quote by U. S. President
John F. Kennedy; Proposed Saints (let us know which of
these you accept/don't accept--yes, we didn't attach descriptions of what they did, but will trust that if
you don't know, you can look for them or request info from us); and
Rites of Life.  Please let us know
what you think by 4 April 2007 by sending an email to the address below.

If you or someone you know wants to begin getting our absolutely free Snooze Letter and other cool
emailings, send an email to xxxxx@xxxxx.xxx with the subject
Add Me. If you want us to take your name
off of our emailing list (which means you will remain unilluminated), send an email to the same address
with the subject
Unsubscribe. Send your comments on our Snooze Letter or proposals or opinions on
submitted pieces or a request to review future submissions or whatever to the same address, but put
something Discordian (ED, ECG, Eris, etc.) in your heading so we'll know it's not spam.

If you want to make a submission, email it to
xxxxx@xxxxx.xxx Please see submission details on our site
before you submit. Thank you and have a day.
