This being the 'Get Your Butt Out There and Do Something' Issue, in which we encourage you to
submit to Discordian Prophetica, invite you to the second annual Discordian Cyberspace

RADIO FREE DISCORDIA IS ON THE AIR -- SORT OF

'RADIO FREE DISCORDIA is finally launching! You can hear its birth pangs tonight [April 1, 2009] at
about 7 PM EST. If you're interested in doing a show, whether it's a one-shot or a weekly gig,
contact Mourning Star, who can (often) be found in the #RFD chat room.' --

WFMU IS ON THE AIR -- STILL FREEFORM

'...When you aren't listening to Radio Free Discordia, you might want to check out WFMU.  It's the
oldest freeform radio station in the United States of Amerika, synchronistically beginning in the
same year Goddess Discordia exposed herself to Omar and Malaclypse.  And some of the DJs are
some of us.  Althought some of them don't know it.' --

ERISTER EGG HUNT / EGGGASM

Yes, it's time once again to hide weird stuff and stranger messages in plastic eggs.  For a year, it's
been said the idea originated with
Pinky McFatfat and a post made 11 days before Easter in
2008.  
Professor Cramulus almost immediately called it EggGASM, as part of OMGASM
(Operation Mindfuck: Golden Apple Seed Mission).  Simultaneously, the
Mythics of Harmonia
(primarily
Princess Unicornia, Fairy Princess Yoshikyoko and Nurse Eggscream) dubbed it
Erister Egg Hunt.  Call it what you will, but do it.

But it was actually done earlier, probably in 1997 CE:

'One Easter, the
Sacred Chao Ranch Cabal hid plastic Easter eggs all over the mall,
supermarkets, museums, churches, etc. that had enlightening fortunes trapped inside. The fortunes
were along the lines of “This is an unfertilized egg”, “The PA lottery number for 5-23-97 will be 17-32-
5”, “You picked the 10 of Clubs”, “25 cents off of LUCKY CHARMS”, and “You are pregnant (replace
egg if you are a man)”.'

The above is from
'The Discordian Manifesto #3' by Professor Mu-Chao and other 23ae.com
peeps as it appears in
Apocrypha Discordia, 2nd edition on page 17 and at www.23ae.
com/index.asp?post=12  This connection was finally pointed out by Spagnaut at http://groups.

SHAMLICHT KIDS CLUB vs SMAGMOID KIDS CLUB?

In case you're unaware, Shamlicht Kids Club was a merger of Shamlicht Girls and Shamlicht
Boys
that happened on 3 October 2007.  The separate clubs had both begun in 2005, the girls' club
began by
Sister Hooter and the boys' club by Captain 'Sesame Seed' Rogers.  Like
Discordianism itself, it was a small joke that grew....

Now, there are a few independent chapters in various parts of Earth, which means that a few
outsiders are starting to hear of it.  This has caused some concern over the name.  While there's
great debate about what 'shamlicht' means, for a real kids club it bears what some find an
uncomfortable resemblance to various English words.

Therefore, it's been proposed by a couple members of the SKC's
Purple Ferret's Nest that the
club name be changed to
Smagmoid Kids Club.  'Smagmoid' is, of course, the word spoken by the
crow that proceeded the appearance of
Cherub Princess Shamlicht, who revealed the mission of
creating
Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht to Reverend Loveshade.  This was
on Mid Year's Day 2005, which is when Reverend Loveshade first heard the crow say 'smagmoid.'

Perhaps 'shamlicht' sounds more acceptable than 'smagmoid, ' especially as most people won't
know that Shamlicht is a not-socially-correct naked cherub with monkeys flying out of es butt.  On the
other hand, 'smagmoid' also sounds like certain English words, and is similar to a futuristic expletive
used frequently on
Red Dwarf (if you haven't seen that show, watch it).Give us your opinion on that
and anything else, you briliating people, at
discordia.loveshade.org/xtra/feedback.

Visit the club at
discordia.loveshade.org/skc.  Note that while we are hosting the SKC on our
website, we have no official affiliation with the group.  Also note that the leaders and members of
SKC will make the final decision on the name.


SKC LOGO

Shamlicht Kids Club (to be Smagmoid Kids Club?) is also looking for a logo.  As each group is
really independent in spite of the supposed structure, several of the members and leaders think it
would be fun to have some sort of logo they could use.  See
discordia.loveshade.org/skc for more
about the group.  Then send your artwork or suggestions to them at the address listed there.


MASQUERADE AT LIMBO PEAK
aka
DISCORDIAN CYBERSPACE MASQUERADE

Those who participated in this last year know it was a lot of fun.  Everyone wore a "mask," so you
didn't know who anyone else there was.  That unknown partier could be your best friend, someone
you never met, or your worst enemy.

Last year, the first year, led to a book (still coming),
ShamliCon, Day of Discord, and more.  Who
knows what it will lead to this year?

YOU are invited to the Discordian CYBERSPACE MASQUERADE

Shed your old Internet identity. Come in "disguise."  Rub elbows with Discordians and kin from all
over the Interfnord.  Swap Ideas.Have new ones. Help write a book. Find The Others.

ILLUMINATUS INNER SANCTUM REVIVAL  -- SUCCESS!

The site groups.yahoo.com/groups/illuminatusinnersanctum began on March 18 or March 19 2000
(date depending on time zone).  Then, around the time of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on
the United States (when some of us started disappearing), it started to fade.

Well, we've revived it!  Thanks to returning members and new members, the site once frequented by
some great Discordians has been the most active it's been since 2002.  It has some great
discussions, and some pretty crappy ones too.  Go thou and checkest it out!
