The Reverend Loveshade is Alive Issue


This being the Reverend Loveshade is Alive Issue, in which we tell you the latest on the long-anticipated
Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht, review The Rev's break with Anonymous, and finally hear
from our missing leader.


You may have noticed that you received these Snooze Letters every month or two but haven't gotten one
since January.  You may even have noticed you're getting this missive from a slightly different email address
than usual.  There's unfortunately a good reason for these: Reverend Loveshade is currently in hiding.  Yes,
The Rev. has technically been in hiding since February of 2002, but had been regularly keeping in contact
through a system of randomly-redirected communication.

But the problems intensified this year when a reward was made for es capture.  The D & D of the ECG hadn't
received a communication from em since April of 2012 when "No More Anonymous" was posted at
www.loveshade.org./blog and www.23ae.com.  Frankly, we've been worried.  But we recently received the
following note:

Dear LES,

I am doing OK. I am nearly fatally bored with hiding but I imagine it's better than the alternative of being
found. Thanks VERY MUCH for the missive from Ms. M.C. I miss em and the little wet and messy P.T.T. totally
terribly. To make a baby together and then not get to see your daughter's first birthday. I might as well be in
الجيش (the army). At least then I'd know who's trying to kill me.

Something important to me. If you can find הזמן (the time) please update the website with something. Maybe
that poem by Rat. we wanted but could never fit into EDTToS.  Or those pieces by A.M. or Cram. or M.S. or
TfT or the late TGRR (you know which ones I mean. All in same two folders). Or a Snooze Letter mentioned
below. A.L. should have the password.

Also something important to me. Please send out a Snooze Letter. A.L. should have most or all of the
emailing list. Include this missive minus the part marked "Kitchen Utensils," my N.M.A., something about
EDTToS, whatever else. If you post it on the site I can see it. I still can't check email even with an encrypted
connection cuz I bet that's being traced.

Something more important than me. Amazon has the EDTToS listed as "Temporarily out of stock"?! Another
TAG seizure, the reward for you-know-what, or because you've held off on final editing because I'm living in
cognito? If the latter two, please don't wait. Please plead with A.L. and P.U. to do final edits. I trust them more
than I trust myself. Not that that's saying much.

If there's room please add John Cage, musician, for 5 Sept. or 12 Aug. to EDTToS saints if e's not already in
there. I don't know what dates are taken as I can't access the book.  And if you can find room, please add the
Charles Stanley normal quote.  If there's not room for these don't, or drop something borderline, your choice.

(Here was the part labeled "Kitchen Utensils.")

Give my love or lust as appropriate. Send neither to A.H. Of course give both to Ms. M.C. and love sealed
with a kiss on the navel to P.T.T.  And change those nappies!

-- Sheered Völva


Ms. M.C.and P.T.T. are doing fine.  P.T.T. hasn't had any more colic so don't worry.  A. is giving P.T.T. baby
button kisses for you.  Ms. M.C. says A. has not become a terrible teen but is still an excellent babysitter.  A.
said e plans to be a registered childminder before becoming a midwife. They and all T.L.C. miss you terribly
too but don't want you to come back until it's safer.

T.L.C. is doing well and so is the well which is now producing an excess.  They hope to have the "main
building" refurbished by November and say September ended up being optimistic. L.D. got the job which is
good for T.L.C.'s income but bad for building buildings.  M.C.B. was briefly hospitalized but is doing fine.
T.L.C. has a couple possible recruits but will wait until you're back.

W.W.W. is supportive and said they will welcome you back.  They used your "World's Biggest Butt" idea but it
was written by T.V. and they made the bottom 5 ft 3 in instead of 5 ft 3.7 in across.  And R.L.B. has a story
for you: "My Daughter has Mutated into a Snake Monster!"  Search for them.

Family, friend, T.L.C. pics will be posted for you on the "apple" section of the "racist dog" site by July 23.

Ms. M.C. says e loves you lustfully too.

Note that "A.M." is Alan Moore, "Cram" is Cramulus, "M.S." is Miley Spears, "Rat." is Ratatosk, "TfT" is
Terrorists for Truth, "the late TGRR" is The Great Rev. Roger.  "EDTToS" is Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia:
The Tales of Shamlicht.  "Ms. M.C."is Ms. Monkey Candy, the parent with the Rev. of "P.T.T." or Puffle
Toes Twinkelton
.  "TAG" is The Agents of Greyface and "P.U." is Princess Unicornia.  "A.H." is likely
Anonymous Hackers.  "A.L." is A.L.  "Sheered Völva" is a semi-anagram of "Rev. Loveshade."

And "LES" is 537 upside down and backwards which we believe includes the
Discordian Division of the
Ek-sen-triks CluborGuild
and it's friends and associates, meaning everyone who receives this Snooze

"Anonymous should take a leaf out of the IRA's method of operation and use a cellular structure, with only 3
or 4 in each cell so if there is a snitch in the organization it has minimal damage."

(Remember, this cellular structure is a fundamental part of the origin and success of Discordianism).


In accordance with the wishes of "our fearful leader," we are working with the publisher, Anaphora Literary
, to make the "post-final" edits on the book.  Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht has
received comments from some well-known people which are included.

For the benefit of
Reverend Loveshade and others who wonder, the release of the book has been
delayed due to printing problems, atlthough there was a slight delay due to possible legal complications.  The
publisher insisted on a very thorough legal disclaimer for protection against what we call
The Agents of

We want to assure all potential buyers that, based on legal advice, the book is as-far-as-we-can-determine
legal in most of the free world including the United Kingdom, Australia, and the United States but not
including "Janus County, Texas."  If you live in Texas and want to know what area this actually includes, email
us.  But those parts of the book thought to be illegal by local police were later found to be legal by the FBI
and all charges were dropped or dismissed.

The "Foreplay" forward was penned by
S. John Ross aka Pope Leo (Cumberland Games & Diversions,
Warehouse 23, Novus Ordo Discordia: The Gospel of Pesher the Gardener
); reviewer Johnny Shellburn
called this "outstanding" and we agree.  The book got blurbs from such professional lumenaries as
Moore, Robert Anton Wilson
(who saw an early draft), Rev. Ivan Stang, R. Crumb, Sondra London aka
The Erisian Elestria, Reverend Jason "Pee Kitty" Levine, Adam Gorightly, and others.

With luck, it should be available in August or September 2012 at
www.amazon.com/Ek-sen-trik-kuh-Discordia-The-Tales-Shamlicht/dp/1937536181.  And you can order now!
