All Hail Discordians,

Happy 23rd

Mich here: A few things to report since the last newsletter:

GETTING THE PLAY BACK ON. THAT.  

As promised in November, a small, fluctuating band of around 23 seekers met on January 23rd to figure out the nuts and bolts of how to get The Caper Back On. We're talking about a May 2017 London run of 23 performances. This one dubbed 'The Bio-Survival Production' ... Read more about how we rattled our plots and plans on the blog HERE

GETTING IT TO SANTA CRUZ. THAT TOO.

The plan for Santa Cruz July 2017 (the ten year anniversary of Bob's death and the day named Robert Anton Wlson day by Santa Cruz's mayor) is now looking like the ultimate Discordian holiday-caper. A holiday in which we entice as many Bob enthusiasts as possible to work together HEROICALLY to stage Cosmic Trigger in ten gloriously chaotic days of rehearsals, set building and music making madness.

Rather than this being a poor cousin of a more professional tour of our show, we see this as the perfect way to bring together the Bob communities from both sides of the pond in a way that will bond us in Erisian-brother-and-sisterhood and seed many more future adventures. Read more details on the blog HERE

 

Sound like a plan? So… we’re on the case – raising funds, sorting out potential venues, raising our social media game and gearing up to make it happen in London and Santa Cruz in 2017! So, as part of us drumming up the ammunition, Kate and Oliver (our Arlen and Bob) have been working together to:

RELEASE THE FLYING SURVEY MONKEYS!

Look out for an email from us very soon after this one, asking for your helping filling out a short(ish) survey which will give us lots of crunchy, tasty data to help build a case for putting the play back on! To sling an Illuminati Papers quote atcha from Bob’s Ten Reasons To Get Your Ass Out Of Bed Every Morning essay: “we need you on our side – the side of hope and action – and we need you now.” Our survey is 23% less sucky than other surveys. Maybe.

FESTIVAL 23 IS CONVERGING

It’s been a total inspiration to watch the team behind Festival 23 working their socks off to make their vision of Discordian-inspired music, talks, performance and malarkey manifest. It’s shaping up to be quite a party over the weekend of the 22nd-24th July. Early Bird tickets are available now and up to (*cough*) April 23rd. Confirmed acts include Greg Wilson and Kermit’s Super Weird Substance, Knifeworld, Richard Norris, Bloom, Jimmy Cauty’s Model Village, puppet Alan Watts, John Higgs, Cat Vincent and a selection of Cosmic Trigger Play cast members (shenanigans tbc). More info and tickets if you click on the apple HERE.  Newsletter subscribers can add the Code CT23 and get free badges. Tidy.

MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR

On February 23rd, Fortean writer and magician Cat Vincent organised a magical working to help Cosmic Trigger in its heroic ambitions to get across the pond. A merry band gathered in front of the Jung bust in Liverpool, exactly two years to the day since Daisy plonked some rainbow knickers on the philosopher’s head. Read his brilliant Blog post about it on our website HERE

Thanks for reading  – and keep a third eye out for the Survey Monkey!
