The We Have a Publisher Issue

discordia.loveshade.org

This being the We Have a Publisher Issue, in which we celebrate a special anniversary, look for nominations
for the Order of the Pineapple, search out Discordian American Princesses, expose a budding commune,
and reveal that....


WE HAVE A PUBLISHER

Breaking News: Don't ask how it happened, but we have a signed contract for Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia:
The Tales of Shamlicht!  The book has been proofread and not-yet-final advance copies are being looked
at by, well, some people whose names you would recognize.  This is not self-publishing, as great as that can
be, but a legitimate professional publisher.  Well, as legitimate as anyone could be who'd take our book.  
With luck
Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht could be in your hands sometime next year!  
Look for more details in our next Snooze Letter.


ORDER OF THE PINEAPPLE NOMINATIONS

It's time once again to make nominations for The Order of the Pineapple.  While technically only members
may nominate, we'll take suggestions from anyone.  The winners are always announced/published on
January 18, which is Pat Pineapple Day.  This year's winners are
Sondra London (A Current Affair,
Knockin' on Joe: Voices from Death Row, True Vampires
) and Alan Moore (V for Vendetta,
Watchmen, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
).  See previous winners at op.loveshade.org.

Members in the 29-year-old Order (or DisOrder) are honored for extraordinary service in ‘the participatorial
study of comedic attitudes and eccentric tendencies’ and for furthering the cause of discord.  Please send
suggestions and nominations for the O.P.'s 30th anniversary by 15 December 2011 to the email address
listed at
op.oveshade.org.


ĔK-SĔN-TRĬKS CLUBORGUILD

Wednesday, 16 November 2011, is the 30th anniversary of the founding of the original Ĕk-sĕn-trĭks
Cluborguild
.  We were fortunate to get contributions to Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of
Shamlicht
from several of the original members including ECG co-founders Alien and Zeus.  The ECG
started the Order of the Pineapple, and of course inspired the D & D of the ECG.  Happy Anniversary!


DISCORDIAN AMERICAN PRINCESSES

You may know Discordian American Princess is listed on UrbanDictionary.com, has an article on the S23.
org wiki, and is an actual category of Uncyclopedia.com where several DAP articles have been featured.  
Well now DAPS
Princess Unicornia, Fairy Princess Yoshikyoko, Priestess Erisian Spectre aka
Princess Erisian Hellion and Miley Spears are making an official award for DAPS they recognize. And the
first who will receive it is:
Lexena Rae!  Born on the 11th of June of this year, the girl is the daughter of our
own
Reverend Loveshade and Ms. Monkey Candy.

If you know of worthy DAPS, let them know (see
lorien.loveshade.org).

If you or someone you know wants to begin getting our absolutely free Snooze Letter and other cool
emailings (we usually send about one email a month), send an email to the address listed on our
home page
with the subject
Add Me. If you want us to take your name off of our emailing list (which means you will
remain unilluminated), send an email to the same address with the subject
Unsubscribe.

Send your comments on our Snooze Letter or proposals or opinions on submitted pieces or a request to
review future submissions or anything else other than submissions to the same address, but put something
Discordian (ED, ECG, Eris, etc.) in your heading so we'll know it's not spam. (We get a lot of spam, and don't
want to unknowingly delete something from a Discordian).

If you want to make a submission for our website or possible future projects, email it to the address listed on
our
home page. Please see submission details at discordia.loveshade.org/xtra/xssubmit.html before you
submit. Thank you and have a day
