Leaked screen shots from the X-Day remote sensing event happening RIGHT NOW at various locations around the world.

JULY 2 – 5, “2021” – Florida AND Ohio
This is THE SubGenius World Destruction Event and Annual Migration to our spawning grounds!
X-Day will be VERY different this year!
1) It won’t just be a Drill this time
2) The live in-person event has grown to TWO sites: our usual Ohio campground, Wisteria, but also a NEW (to us) resort campground in Florida!
3) It will also be streamed live, which is how it happened last year with great success.
Yankees and others who treasure hanging out with old friends at Wisteria (and are too far from Florida) can do so just like in the old days! Those who want to try the Florida one, SIGN UP QUICK because only 50 can attend and 25 have already signed up. (Also, the Florida one is a bit more expensive.)
Those who will await the Saucers at home can attend virtually just like last year. Up to fifty people attended that and it was a lot of fun. The Florida event will be live-streamed separately. The Wisteria one might be streamed, IF the wifi and phone service improves in that locale.
The Florida event is at Land of ID, a clothing-optional campground in Land of Lakes, Florida, and is being organized by the folks at Hypercube: https://hypercubego.com/XDAY2021/
Rev. Ivan Stang will be at the Florida one only (and possibly Dr. Philo Drummond and Dr. Hal likewise). Also expected there: Hypercube Labs, TTN, Danny Feedback, Trotskys Watercooler, Rubix Pube, SubG Kids, Negative at Night, Anna Barnes, Wyld Bill, Supershere Media Empire, Elvis Martini, Lord Ferg and peas. Virtual Acts will include Alcheministry Labs, The RATHOLE, Bill T Miller

So, far, no one has stepped forward to organize the Wisteria gathering, but then, this is the first time we’ve mentioned it. Basically all of the Ohio event info (so far) is the same as in previous years. The decorations and the huge pulpit are already at Wisteria, locked up since 2019 with the Starwood Festival stuff. However, Stang won’t be there to set up his ancient sound system or anything else. We’re hoping some other X-Day old-timer can step up.
(At 67, Rev. Stang can still travel, and run his mouth, and run a holy mail order business, but after 26 X-Day Drills and countless devivals, he can no longer TOTE, or drive long distances.)
*Yes, we know that Hypercube is calling this the 25th Annual Drill. We don’t know why. Maybe it has something remotely to do with the way Dr. Faux’s name is actually pronounced NOTHING LIKE IT IS SPELLED.
The first full-length SubGenius science fiction novel, EYELASH by Nikolai Kingsley, is now available, and Rev. Stang reads an excerpt from it. He also reads the latest Dobbs.town Mirror (in stages) as well as a new rant by Onan. Interspersed are classic best-of bits from The Puzzling Evidence Show and ESO Swamp Radio (all from 2001-2002) and some more very rare Firesign Theatre from their early radio days. We also hear Paul Mavrides and Penn Jillette talking about the Church, from the new documentary. There’s one song, a hidden track by Morgan Gutentag, titled, “Hidden Track.” Everything else is gravy, or, LeMur.
