The 5 Years and 37 Days Issue


This being the 5 Years and 37 Days Issue, in which we slap the flexible deadline for Ek-sen-trik-kuh
Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht, ask for your help with the book, uncover the identity of The Good
Reverend Roger, tell about a new nest of Shamlicht Kids Club, examine Uncyclopedia, and report one of our
family was injured in a collision under very Discordian circumstances.


When I, Reverend Loveshade, recieved the vision to put together Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of
Shamlicht on Mid Years Day, 2 July 2005, I was told it would take 5 years and 37 days, more or less.  I didn't
realize until very recently that 8 August 2010 was the 65th anniversary of the end of the war between
America and Japan in 1945.  One of our main contributors is the Japanese-American
Fairy Princess
.  We have a quote by one of es relatives in the book about the bombing by America of Japan in
August 1945, and it was added before any of us realized the connection.  Nor did I know what would happen
on that date.


This story gets weirder, so keep reading.  Alden Loveshade tries as much as possible to stay out of our
Snooze Letters, but we had to report this.  On Sunday morning, 8 August, Alden was driving through Janus
County, Texas (the county is real; the name isn't).  Some of you may know many of our troubles happened in
that very county.  A truck that was at the side of the road suddenly started to make a U turn immediately in
front of Alden.  Our family member tried to avoid the truck, but as e said, "failed."  Alden's vehicle was
totalled, and e received bruises and such and a broken right finger.  The deacon who was driving the other
vehicle refused treatment (after a medic got the details from em).

Here's where it gets really weird and yes, this is true.  Alden was driving to meet a woman who was doing art
for Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht.  This woman had a dream the night before of Alden in
a traffic collision.  Collecting art for
Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht on the scheduled
date for completing the book in Janus County Texas and being hit by a deacon of a conservative Christian
church while meeting an artist who just had a dream Alden would be in an accident.  Weird.

We wish Alden well.


We are looking for people to review Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht.  We want honest
criticism and are open to suggestions and corrections.  If you're interested, please email us (link below).


The Uncyclopedia article Discordianism was on the way to becoming a featured article of the day--until The
Agents of Greyface stepped in.  It's been edited and has an excellent start, but needs work if it will ever make
it to feature status.  Check out the humorous adventure of Discordian Saint Minnie Rae in an article that
paints takeoffs of leading Discordians in a most insulting manner, which we think is cool.  Those who worked
on it including Discordian American Princess
Miley Spears, who is the illegitimate daughter of Cainad; and
confessed Discordians
Syndrome, Binky The WonderSkull, Aleister in Chains and others we suspect
are closet Discordians.  See the article as it now is at


The Good Reverend Roger
was reincarnated and is now living under a different name.  He's now known
Doc Howl.  Apparently e's no longer the angry man cursing the stupidity of the world and telling people,
"or kill me."  Now e's howling as the world crumbles.  Or something like that.


Yes, the Discordian Shamlicht Kids Club that was once a joke has a new nest.  Calling themselves
Triceratops Nest, the nestlers are Tyro Rex and Bronto and nestlings are Batly, Bumbalina, Quart and
The Amazing CD.  They're planning a trip to a waterpark in August as their first major event.  We wish them
