Celebrating the release of Two Sacred Books of SubGenius Wisdom:

The SubGenius Psychlopedia of Slack, Vol. 1:
The Bobliographon
Liturgies and Gospels of the Church of the SubGenius the Perfect Self-Validating Philosophy

among other essential works.

HOW DID THIS COME TO BE? Know that you were born with Original Slack. But the Conspiracy, of whose overarching existence you are but vaguely aware, eternally seeks to steal this, the Precious Gift of J.R. "Bob" Dobbs from you, and sell you, in its place a Worthless Mess of the Pottage of False Slack. The Conspiracy doesn't want you to have True Slack. Oh, no-- the Conspiracy wants you to work for a living. But we say:

REPENT! QUIT YOUR JOB! SLACK OFF!

SOUND COMPLICATED? IT IS!

SO COME TO CITY LIGHTS APRIL 1st

--and meet the SubGeniuses. Ask, and it shall be answered. View, fondle and buy the newly released SubGenius Books, and others by "Bob's" devotees. Experience the terrifying confusion of SubGenius Live Performance(s). You'll laugh. Later, you may cry. Pull the wool over your own eyes! This is an ultra-rare opportunity to learn in one fell swoop some of the Deeper Things of "Bob." REFRESHMENTS WILL BE SERVED. Remember... The World Ends Tomorrow, and YOU May DIE!......which is why you need at least one copy of The Psychlopedia of Slack: The Bobliographon, Revelation X: The "Bob"Apocryphon,The Meaning of Lost and Mismatched Socks, Alien Apocalypse 2006 and Dinosaur Alphabet, among other essential works.
