What do you do?
You are slumbering blissfully, dreaming of things that were, things that are, things that will be, and things that never will be. Your fantasy slides gently from the normal into the unbelievable, then pirouetting back into normality as dreams are wont to do.
A perfectly boring fourth-grade math lesson is disrupted by your teacher's transformation into a clown, who proceeds to blast the classroom full of marshmallows with his rainbow-colored rifle. Your friend Danny gobbles up the candy with uncanny speed, then finally swallows the clown. Danny explodes in a puff of pink smoke, and through the wisps you see your teacher once again.
After class you find yourself flying with your friend Danny, soaring through the sky on leathery wings, on your way towards Dinzyworld... What a summer it will be! You make a broad loop through a cloud, singing with joy, when suddenly... BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
You are woken up by the buzzing of an alarm clock. You open your eyes and blink in the morning light streaming in from your window, the dreamy haze quickly dissipating into oblivion. You're still very tired...
This is a light, silly Discordian Project. Your assistance is requested. Help make new pages, and help spread the word!
- To hit the snooze button, go to Page 2... "Just another ten minutes, mom...."
- To get up and jump out of bed, go to Page 3... "Let's get this day started RIGHT!"

Read-Only Irreality is online
I have managed to wrangle a read-only version of irreality into working, and also renegotiated the cancellation date on the server (which is no fun). You can retrieve your things at irreality.net before it inevitably is lost to the aether in a week.
Please spread the word as there is currently no centralized method for doing so...

With the latest developments, and the mass expulsion of citizens from Irr, the U.N. has announced that it will assess refugee status on a case by case basis.
Alternative, longer term refugee camps are being set up in the following locations:http://realityhackers.ning.com/http://esozone.com/discuss/http://zcluster.org
Refugees are advised to steer clear of lower quality shanty towns such as OccultForums.
End of transmission.

Hi guys! We're knee deep in BUZZ WEEK for Colbertgasm.
If you haven't heard of this before, check out our wiki at http://www.poee.co.uk/bip/index.php?title=Colbertgasm
This is an oldskool Discordian jake. We're trying to get as many as people as possible to send snail mail to Colbert and Stewart and invite them into our secret societies. If they want in, they have to use one of our code words on the air on March 5th.
So we need YOU
to help send in snail mail. The project's "really cool" people are sending 20+ letters (only eight bucks worth of stamps!), but even 1 or 2 would help.
We have sample letters on the website, so all you have to do is print it out, stuff it in an envelope, and wave goodbye. We encourage people to mail something every day, with higher volumes of mail as this goes on.
If you want an even higher level of "being involved" the primary discussion thread for Colbertgasm is over here http://www.principiadiscordia.com/forum/index.php?topic=15083.0
At the very least, tune in on March 5th to see if it worked.
Sticking apart is more fun when we do it TOGETHER!

Put up posters, flyers, and stickers in public places. Leave pamphlets and other literature in places where people will find them or see them. The Objective:
Reclaim public spaces. Surprise people out of their daily rut. Encourage creative thought.
here's some materials that people are putting up:
but you can put up whatever you want!
Discordians all over the world are participating in the PosterGasm. After they post stuff, they upload pictures to flickr and tag them with "postergasm". Check it out!
Thumbnails of recent POSTERGASM activity is also on the OMGASM Mission Feed
. Current Mood: adjective
Golden Apple Seed Missions
did you hear that?
ALL HAIL DISCORDIA
...it might be the last time you ever hear it.
By the time you depart from this world and drink the punch at limbo peak, Eris may be lost and forgotten by the 21st century. She'll wait for another era, when humanity won't cast her aside like an uppity bitch. Those grayfaces the Romans did it. And we're on that track right now.
It's ironic, really. Thanks the the incredible Chaos (read: Order + Disorder) of the Information Age (read: information + misinformation), there are more Discordians & kin than there ever have been. And people, in their blessed creativity, are taking Discordja in directions that Mal and Omar and RAW couldn't have imagined on their strangest trip ever. And yet over the years we have slowly drifted from the lunatic fringe into the lunatic margin. In a mere moment we may be off the lunatic all together. What has HAPPENED to Discordja? We should be exploding like fireworks filled with whoopee cushions but we're so unheard of, so fringe, we barely even exist!
I'm not saying we should get all mainstream or some shit. I'm just saying we would all benefit if we could pool our resources so we can all accomplish our goals.
Whether they're putting up absurd flyers or drawing moustaches on movie posters or spreading some awesome meme bomb or whatever it is you want to do, you could do it on a bigger cooler scale if you had help. Or maybe you don't have any good ideas but you've read the Principia and Illuminatus! and Fight Club too many times to let life pass by without giving it a violent shaking.
There's hope for popes. Scope this dope:
Let's say your episkopos or your cabal or your congregation or your self wants to accomplish something or other, and you don't have the resources to do it yourselfves personally. Let's say you're all hot and bothered about Operation: Mindfuck and you want to drop your meme bomb in a wider radius than you have access to. Or whatever your project is. Be creative.
You write it up as a GOLDEN APPLE SEED MISSION. Write what it's about, and tell people how they can participate. Make it FUN. Then, you post it to the interfnord or hang it up on your wall or mail it to your friends or whatever. GASM is our new code word. It means Assistance Requested. It means you don't mind having your shit fucked up by a bunch of Discordian asshats.
Because look, lunatic fringe joke religions are a dime a dozen deez days. And we Discordjians are gonna get left behind and forgotten unless we adapt to the times, people. In the olden days of Discord, they passed the word around with words of mouth and pamphlets and stuff. Now it's the Internet Robot Future and the whole world has its digital ear pressed to your gibbering mouth. We should be flourishing in this age. They say Discordians should stick apart, but people are treating that like a RULE. And as a rule, Discordians break ja rules!
So be on the lookout. Operation Mindfuck has mutated after having sex with the internet. The OMGASM is coming. You can help too. You just gotta
- Help out people who post Golden Apple Seed Missions.
- Be Active (whatever that means for you). Make your activities so exciting or cool or hilarious that others want to join you. Then let the fnordosphere know about it so that they can play too.
This idea will actually work if you (you PERSONALLY) actually participate, and don't just read this thing you're reading right now and go "Hm,
that sounds like a cool idea, I wonder if it'll actually work."
- Check out the OMGASM Wiki
- pay attention to the Web_2.0 article, which describes exactly how we're going to stay in contact with each other and coordinate without electing a fearless leader
- search the web for GASMs. A good place to start is the GASM feed.
Current Mood: rocking out
Did you hear that?
It's taking off RIGHT NOW!
No, I'm serious-- look outside RIGHT NOW!
hahahah holy shit
When you see it, you'll shit grins.

Oh IRR, how I miss thee.
Thank goodness for IRC.

Oh hai guise
So how is everyone handling their withdrawal symptoms? I'm cleaning and doing laundry. Good times. (I'm SisterMedusa at IRR in case you didn't know)
Has anyone ever read The Voynich Manuscript
? Terence McKenna mentioned in The Archaic Revival
, and then I saw a copy at Borders the other day so snagged it. Looks quite mysterious and impressive. Just wondering if any of y'all have tackled it. Current Mood: curious
