The "End of 3174" Issue

discordia.loveshade.org

This being the "End of 3174" Issue, in which we tell you how to learn your true holy name, tell you
about a book that hasn't happened--yet, enlighten you on how to find Discordian works, discover a
brand new Discordian magazine, and hint at new members to the Prestigious Order of the
Pineapple.

ORDER OF THE PINEAPPLE: NOMINATIONS

The members of the Order of the Pineapple (also know as the Pineapple DisOrder) have chosen
finalists, with winners to be notified on January 18, which is
Pat Pineapple Day.  The first award was
given on that date, which is Pat Pineapple Day and synchronistically is the birthday of
Robert
Anton Wilson
.

For those who don't know, the OP honors those who have made exceptional contributions of
extreme discord and eccentricity in service to the
Discordian Division of the Ek-sen-triks
CluborGuild
and/or the historical/hysterical Ek-sen-triks CluborGuild.  It was first awarded by the
ECG on 18 January 1982, and is our second oldest order, after
The Unknown DisOrder.
We'll let you know who gets dishonored.


LITGASM

There's a lot of great Discordian crap out there, and perhaps even more not so great.  But who's to
judge?  Litgasm is an attempt to find it all over the Internet.  Learn more about how you can find what
you want and participate at
blackironprison.com/index.php?title=Litgasm.


INTERMITTENS

There's a new Discordian magazine!  It's called Intermittens, and the first issue is now out.  Right
now you can find it at
discordia.loveshade.org/xtra/archive. Edited by the good Professor
Cramulus
, it includes pieces on Emergence, Knowing We Are Free (which we've had on our site
for quite a while), International Relations, Who Killed the Lulz?, Sacred Bull, Media Mindfucking, and
more. We plan to have an Intermittens page up in the next month or two, so look for it.


HAPPY SPANK YOUR BUTT DAY AND OTHER HYSTERICAL OCCASIONS

Bumper Bunny's butt got birthday bumped!  And that's not the only one as we wish happy birthday
spanks to fellow founding member
Joe Monkeyshines and great member Slick Pigeon of Purple
Ferret's Nest
which makes them all members of Smagmoid Kids Club.  Another fanny slap or five
to birthday babe
Minima, who's a co-founding nestler (co-leader) of PFN.

Congrats to
Fairy Princess Yoshikyoko, who began serving time at a four-year institution of
higher education, and to
Princess Unicornia who's been doing the college grind but is now at a
new one.  The pair are the founders of
Mythics of Harmonia.


DISCORDIAN CYBERSPACE MASQUERADE: THE BOOK

The book for the Discordian Cyberspace Masquerade (name currently under debate) is now in its
eighth draft, according to "
Hairacles."  It will contain various items posted during the masq, plus
some cool bonus stuff--or so we've heard.  A rumor says our good friend "Danacasso" is helping
with layout, but who beleives rumors?  In any case, Hairacles said, "Trusts me - will be worth the
wait."

WHAT'S YOUR HOLY NAME?

We blantantly ripped off the good Professor Mu-Chao, and have our own version of es Holy Name
Generator.  Want to know your one-and-only true holy name?  Now you can!  And you can also visit
Mu-Chao's original version, and see your other one-and-only true holy name.
Just a few of the name we randomly generated using our HNG include Pope Slug Spit, The
Invincible Pineapple Tampon, Episkopos Captivating Overalls, Poet Heart Fungus, Rabbi Schlong
Jumper, Disciple Raspberry Nipples, Reverend Drunk Backwards, Father Randy Fingers and
Reverend Dildo Bangkok (read that one slowly).  You can see our twisted version at
discordia.loveshade.org/xtra/holyname.html.  And you can see Professor Mu-Chao's original version
at
www.23ae.com/format/holyname.html.

We'd like to clarify that we did none of the programming that created the generator.  We just ripped
the program off from 23ae.com, and changed most of the words that will randomly appear.  You can
rip off Mu-Chao too (with the good professor's permission), and make your own version for whatever
kind of names you want.

it's the closest
