Principia Discordia Released In Hardback

March 12, 2007

Pride, Groucho:39, 6006 YD

ooOOooooOOOO shiny!

That’s right folks. The POEE | UK Resource Centre and our publishing sub-sect Synaptyclypse Generator have finally got our finger out of our asses and published the damned thing.

Here we are in 2007 (or YOLD 3173), (or 6006 YD – Ed.), forty-eight, or forty-nine years after Mal2 and Omar’s Discordian revelations at the hands of the Goddess Eris. Synaptyclypse Generator is proud to present this special edition of the legendary counter-culture classic, the bible of Discordianism. We have spared no cabbage-power in preparing this wonderful hardback edition for your enjoyment and enlightenment. Illuminet disappeared, Loompanics have closed their doors and Ronin have released a mashed up paperback edition. We at Synaptyclypse Generator decided that this wasn’t good enough. We wanted our Principia. The real Principia. And what’s more, we wanted something special, we wanted it in hardback! Principia Discordia has been republished a number of times over the years, but not since 1976 has it been available to the general public in hardback format. So we took it upon ourselves to produce this edition. We have done the best we could have hoped to ensure a quality and cherishable version of Principia Discordia and hope you fall in love with the Principia Discordia all over again, just as we have.

For this edition, we have included Kerry W. Thornley’s introduction to the 1991 Illuminet Press edition and Robert Anton Wilson’s Loompanics Unlimited introduction. We include all the material from the last Loompanics printing and any odd bits left over from the Illuminet version. We have closing ‘Outroductions’ by none other than the Rev.Dr Jon Swabey of Apocrypha Discordia fame and ‘crackpot historian,’ Adam Gorightly, author of The Prankster and the Conspiracy, The Story of Kerry Thornley and How He Met Oswald and Inspired the Counterculture. It also features the most sumptuously gorgeous cover that any edition has ever had.

Friday Afternoon Thoughts

November 11, 2005

It is one minute after three o’clock as I begin to write this . . . I have just under two hours to go until I am out of this hellhole for over a week. Words really do fail at times such as these.

Yes, I still work here. Plans don’t go into motion that quickly or that easily, so just calm down.

What do I have to report? Eris works in strange ways . . . Big Mama’s co-worker from Hades quit without notice late last week, and then early this week his town was pummelled by a fierce tornado. Take THAT, mofo. Little did he know that he was fucking with the BGA. Ha, sucker.

What else? The Principia Discordia forums have erupted again into petty squabbling and mud-slinging. Just an average week over there. Some people have left and set up camp at the forums run by Synaptyx, where your faithful Baron discovered that he was being whispered about. Apparently it is believed that I am secretly someone named “Dags”. I assure all of you that I am not Dags, neither is he me.

Did I mention that someone very dear to my heart won the Principia Discordia forum Essay Contest? There were more whisperings that the essay contest was fixed. Well, why should the interweb be any different from the real world? Besides, if Mr. Salazar can take over a country by force why can’t he rig a silly essay contest on an internet forum? At any rate, it wasn’t fixed. So there.

So long, suckers . . . One. Week. Off.

Hail Motherfucking Eris.
