The Miley Ray Cyrus Got Eaten by a Dragon Issue

discordia.loveshade.org

This being the Miley Ray Cyrus Got Eaten by a Dragon issue, in which we tell you where you can get your
own Discordian Calendar or five for free, give an update on Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of
Shamlicht, tell you how you can be a part of the Legend of the Green Dragon, wish the Discordian American
Princess Miley Ray Cyrus a happy 18th birthday, and look for nominations for the prestigious Order of the
Pineapple.


ORDER OF THE PINEAPPLE 2011

By now everyone's heard of the Order of the Pineapple.  What, you haven't?  Well, you're about to be
enlightened.  The Order of the Pineapple (OP) is our second oldest and most truly "this-gives-you-bragging-
rights" DisOrder.  Like most of our stuff, we didn't create it but ripped it off.  It began recognizing exceptional
contributions of discord and eccentricity in service to the
Ek-sen-triks CluborGuild in the very early 1980s,
but expanded.  A connection with the original group or to the
Discordian Division of the Ek-sen-triks
CluborGuild
rip off is considered, but not required.  But exceptional service to the cause of discord and
eccentric tendencies is a must.

Last year's honorees were
Professor Cramulus and Professor Mu-Chao.  Recent honorees have
included
Steve Jackson and our own Reverend Loveshade, and previous honorees included
Malaclypse the Younger, Omar Khayyam Ravenhurst, Timothy Leary, and Robert Anton Wilson.  
Anyone is free to turn down the award, but so far no one has.  We're rather surprised at that.

The award is given out each year on Pat Pineapple Day, which is January 18.  So it's time to think of
nominating worthies for next year's award.  While only a member of the DisOrder can technically make a
nomination, we'll take suggestions for deserving trouble-makers from anyone.  Send your suggestions
including reasons why we should consider your proposed member to the OP email listed or linked at the end
of this here letter.  Please send them no later than Santa Claus Day (25 December 2010).  To learn more
and to see all known honorees, go to
discordia.loveshade.org/xtra/pineapple.html or the officious site at
orderofthepineapple.info .

OP Estorical notes

We are missing several years in which the OP may have been given.  If you have any information on
awardees from 1995 to 2006, please email us at the address listed or linked at the bottom of this Snooze
Letter.


EK-SEN-TRIK-KUH DISCORDIA: THE TALES OF SHAMLICHT--REVIEWERS WANTED

We are getting very close to finishing the book Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht.  We
have to redo two or three pages, and ran into a delay--literally.  Auto collisions are not fun, especially when
they occur on the exact day the first draft was originally scheduled to be completed (yes, this is true).

What we're looking for right now are people who will review
Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of
Shamlicht
.  After that and some revisions, we plan to get a prominent so-and-so to write the introduction,
work out details with a publisher, and make millions of dollars.  OK, so one of those things isn't true.  We do
have access to some never-before-published material by one or two very prominent departed-this-mortal-coil
Discordians, which we are very pleased to have.

The publisher part may be tricky; we've checked dozens of publishers and none of them have a category that
fits our book.  But that's just fine with us.  We don't like being crammed into a box anyway.

If you want to see some samples, head on over to
discordia.loveshade.org/ek-sen-trik-kuh.  If you're
interested in reviewing it (we'll probably have it ready by January 2011, barring an asteroid strike or other
disaster), send us an email to our address listed or linked at the bottom of this here letter.

You can see the most recent version of the front cover (which may change) at
discordia.loveshade.
org/images/edttos_front_cover.jpg.  The image is by A.L., and the model is an original member of Shamlicht
Kids Club who used the member name of Goldie Bear.  The Sacred Chao with killifish symbol is a tattoo on
the belly of
Saint The Mary.  Comments on the front cover are welcomed.


SHAMLICHT KIDS CLUB

The Discordian Shamlicht Kids Club that was once a joke is continuing to expand.  While plans for having
their own website fell through, we're happy to continue hosting them on ours.  There are now about half a
dozen nests (local groups) we know of, but more may be forming.  If you want your kids to have a chance to
grow up open minded, or just want them to have fun, check out discordia.loveshade.org/skc.


LEGEND OF THE GREEN DRAGON

Professor Cramulus
is always coming up with something new.  This time it's an online roleplaying game
called
Legend of the Green Dragon.  In the game you can protect yourself with armour including a trash can
lid, wield your mighty potato, and battle various twisted monstrosities including celebrities.  (We haven't yet
found
Miley Ray Cyrus, but we're still looking).  It's rather tongue-in-cheeky, but challenging and fun.   See it
at
cramul.us/dragon or visit the main page at cramul.us for even more fun.

If you want to join a clan, email us at the address listed or linked below and we might have a suggestion for a
really spiffy clan....


HAPPY BIRTHDAY MILEY RAY CYRUS

Yes, we stopped regularly reporting birthdays and anniversaries many issues ago, but we reserve the right to
do it when we feel like it.  And as
Miley Ray Cyrus is currently the world's most famous more-or-less-officially-
recognized
Discordian American Princess and as she turns 18 on 23 November 2010, we wish her 18
fanny slaps!  For more on the Miley Ray Cyrus-Discordian connection, see
discordia.loveshade.
org/xtra/mileycyrus.html or www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=miley+ray+cyrus.  According to s23.
org on Discordian American Princesses, 'Miley Ray Cyrus is the only known DAP who fits both the original
and Disney Princess categories as she was recruited into Discordianism.’  You can also see an article that
Miley plans to pose for Playboy magazine by, err, um, ahem, someone named "
Frank Lake" at
weeklyworldnews.com/headlines/23574/miley-cyrus-to-do-playboy/#idc-cover.  We had nothing to do with the
article.  Honest.  Trust us.

If you want to send Miley Ray Cyrus birthday wishes, you may send them through us (to avoid spam please
we are not posting this email online.  If you're interested, email us at the address below).


CALENDAR FOR 3177

Have you gotten your calendar for 3177?  You haven't?  Gosh, are you behind the times!  You can choose
your choice of five designs at
23ae.com/2010/10/discordian-calendar-3177-2011 which will soon be
appearing on our site at discordia.loveshade.org/calendars.  And in case anyone doesn't know, the
Discordian year 3177 more-or-less corresponds to 2011 CE.  Thanks to
the other anonymous for putting
these together, and for including several of our Ek-sen-trik Discordian holydays.  And speaking of holydays....
