The Where Are We? Issue

discordia.loveshade.org

This being the Where Are We? Issue, in which we ask Where's Reverend Loveshade, where's the babies,
reveal who's hiding the Ace of Hearts, and tell you where to find the Order of the Pineapple honorees for
2014.  For those with short attention spans, a Condensed Version is at the bottom.

DISORDER OF THE PINEAPPLE WINNERS 2014

Where you can learn the new inductees into The Order of the Pineapple?  Right here.  The Pineapple goes
to:

His Wholiness the Rev. DrJon and Miley Spears.

Miley Spears: She wrote or co-wrote "Discordianism" and got two articles on Discordian American
Princesses featured on Uncyclopedia, and was the primary influence behind making DAPs its own category.  
Miley wrote or co-wrote Discordian items for Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht, s23.org wiki,
Urban Dictionary, and
Intermittens Magazine, and also writes for Wikipedia.

His Wholiness the Rev. DrJon (aka Rev. DrJon Swabey).  He compiled what is probably the 21st
century's first Discordian tome
Apocrypha Discordia which included both new and old-but-previously-
unknown Discordian material.  DrJon retrieved an early version (thought at the time to be the first) of
Principia Discordia, and wrote an outroduction for the first hardback edition since 1976 for Principia Discordia.

The Order of the Pineapple (aka The DisOrder of the Pineapple) honors those who contribute to discord and
ek-sen-trik tendencies above and beyond the call of duty. It was first given in 1982 and is given each year on
January 18 which is Pat Pineapple Day. Last year’s winners were
Adam Gorightly and S. John Ross (Pope
Leo). To see a list of all winners, visit
op.loveshade.org.

Congratulations to the new winners! Remember to eat something having to with pineapple on every January
18!

WHO HAS THE ACE OF HEARTS?

After trying for three years, The Loveshade Family snagged the coveted position of Ace of Hearts in the
Flying Buffalo Origins deck for 2014.  No, we hadn't been trying for the Ace in 2014 deck for three years--you
know.

Votes are currently being finalized for the four kings which represent four Famous Game Designers.  Out of
nearly 50 nominations, S. John Ross aka Pope Leo who wrote the foreword to
Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia:
The Tales of Shamlicht is one of 10 finalist.

At least 6,000 of the decks will be printed and will be available at Origins and Gen Con for 2014, and through
our store starting in June.  Previous decks look fantastic so look for this one in June!

WHERE'S REVEREND LOVESHADE?

It may not be quite as popular a question as 'Where's Wally?'  ('Waldo' for North Americans).  But here's the
answer.  Reverend Loveshade is currently living in a 'Hippies in the 21st Century' budding commune with es
first sother
Ms. M.C. and their daughter Puffletoes Twinkleton; Labial Dentist and es legally-recognized
sother
Dr. Octopussy (aka Mistress C.B.) and their daughter Kitten; Fixit Fred and es sother Pineapple
Ginger
; Pastor Faster Master; and part-time resident and the current Untroubled Teen (aka Dr Emma).  
Not surprisingly, these are not necessarily their legal names.

While The Rev wanted to open the commune up to anyone, those who learned the lessons of The Farm,
Svanholm Estate, and Christiania prevailed (sorry to disappoint the "Reverend Loveshade is another Jim
Jones and David Koresh" conspiracy buffs, but all decisions are by consensus).  So for right now it's strictly
by invitation only.


WHERE'S THE BABY?

Another is on the way!  Yes, Reverend Loveshade and Ms. M.C. are excitedly expecting their second bundle
of joy!  Expected due date is 2014 June 15, but you know how babies are.  Really the whole commune is
expecting the baby as they are one big extended family.


WHERE'S THE OTHER BABY?

Congrats to Princess Unicornia aka Lorien Loveshade on having a new niece Kimberly born on New
Year's Day, 31 January (Chinese New Year).  The baby weighed in at 7 lbs. 15 oz. and was 20 1/2 inches
long.
