The Cover Uncovered Issue


This being the Cover Uncovered Issue, in which we reveal GoTopless Protest Day, give a sneak peak of a
New Commune, spy on Shamlicht Kids Club, and expose three proposed covers for Ek-sen-trik-kuh
Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht.


Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht is not going to be published immediately.  This isn't a
toss-together-a-book-and-post-it-online-asap project, as great as some of those are.  This is more in the
write-compile-revise-rewrite-edit-revise-rewrite-rewrite tradition of
Principia Discordia and The Book of the
SubGenius (should I mention that contributors to both of those books contributed to ours?  Nah).  So we
can't yet present you with the whole book yet.

But out of 50+ versions and variations, I can present you with three proposed front covers!

Let us know which of the three proposed covers for
Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht.  
Rank them from 1st place to 3rd place, say which you like best, say which you don't like at all; do whatever's
easy for you.  This isn't a vote, but we do value your input.  We aren't listing the artists' names so that these
will be judged on their own merits.

In your email, identify the covers by their names (isn't that a clever idea?).

ED_cover_crotch.jpg (it has a picture of, hmm, a crotch)

ED_cover_pregnant_mixed.jpg (a naked pregnant girl shown in mixed media)

The images are attached to the email, or you can see them at discordia.loveshade.org/ed/cover/index.html

Send emails to ed_submit@loveshade.org with ED Cover somewhere in your heading.


Who decided women's chests are sexy and men's aren't?

This year the day to assert that women and girls should have as much right to show their chests as men and
boys is Sunday, the 21st of August.  
Princess Unicornia and Fairy Princess Yoshikyoko plan to bare
their boobs at Venice Beach in California with many others this Sunday.  (Actually, many of the females cover
their nipples, an ironic requirement of a formerly nude beach.  However, as some may be wearing fake
nipples, how are people going to tell?).  Austin, Texas, is amazingly more enlightened as topless women and
girls are legal there; so
TawTew the Naturally Perfumed, Miley Spears, and some Shamlicht Kids Club
leaders, members, and friends plan to fully participate with an age range of preschooler to "I remember going
to Woodstock in '69."

Men and boys are asked to wear bras and bikini tops or something else to show their support (pun intended).

But you aren't limited to Venice Beach; there are several protests in various cities include outside the U.S.  
There's also a petition you can sign on the 40th anniversary of Women's Equality Day to be given to
American President Barack Obama on 26 August 2011.  (It was on that date in 1920 women in American got
the right to vote).

Note that the protest is marginally connected with some weird religious cult; somehow I don't think that will
keep Discordians and Sub Genii out.

Join and learn more about Go Topless Protest Day August 21 with info and links at http://inaked.info and at
their site at


This isn't so much of an announcement as prequel to an announcement.  Chapters of Shamlicht Kids Club
plan to do something special for their fourth anniversary on Monday, 3 October, although most may be doing
something on the weekend before.  The Discordian youth group was formed on that date from the previous
Shamlicht Girls and Shamlicht Boys which both began in 2005 (4 September and 20 August
irrespectively), so maybe it's really the sixth anniversary.

In any case, if you have suggestions for activities, get them in now to the email address at
