The Stark Fist Online Magazine is published whenever we feel like it. It contains (among other things), a roundup of SubGenius forum articles, a plethora of images by SubGenius artists, and various rants and raves from contributors.
The current issue (2004-2010) can be found HERE. It leads to many back issues which are even more elaborate and seemingly bottomless.
We send out a shorter bimonthly version of the FIST by email, and to get those you must sign up:
(Even if you gave us your email address in the past, you must sign up for this yourself! That's part of making it spam-proof.) It is not a forum, but simply announcements emailed every month or two from the Church HQ. We call it THE STARK FIST OF REMOVAL Online Version.
NEW: Not for Pinks or the Unsaved: SUBGENIUS MEMBERS-ONLY FORUM: SCRUBGENIUS
For decades -- since 1986 in fact -- alt.slack on Usenet was the main SubGenius forum. Unfortunately, because it was unmoderated, it acted also as a kind of "kook flypaper," and in recent years it began to draw so many -- er, how to put this? Our formerly great newsgroup is now about 90% what we might call unbelievers, Pink Boys, the Differently Saned, unfunny but overactive Bobbies, obsessive spurned fanboys, occultist ninnies who claim they're Dobbs or God, racist psychos and other "Bob"less paranoid PinKooks. Most of the "Rev. Ivan Stangs" that post there are not the real one, for instance, and (we hate to disappoint you) none of the so-called "Bobs" there is the One True J. R. "Bob" Dobbs.
You will have to join Google Groups -- most people probably already have -- which costs nothing, and you will then apply to join ScrubGenius. You must give your "human name" -- the one you first ordered your Membership under -- or otherwise give us something to look up in our records, like a physical or email address that we would have from your order.ScrubGenius is where you'll find chatty gossip, caustic humor, inner-church secrets and old-school rants by such long-time SubGenii as Rev. Stang, Rev. Susie the Floozie, Dr. Legume, etc.
Thousands of SubGenii are now using Facebook, initially meeting via the two official pages, CHURCH OF THE SUBGENIUS and SUBGENIUS FOUNDATION. A more recent, interactive and lively one is THE SLACK HOLE.
For the more ongoing ranting and news, and forums you can contribute to, see the old SubGenius Reverends blog, the Yahoo SUBGENIUS GROUP E-LIST, or the Euro-SubGenius Yahoo list. These seem to be falling by the wayside as Facebook tramples them.
Download the latest Churchly art, photos, recordings and movies from Usenet's alt.binaries.slack and alt.binaries.multimedia.slack (newsreader probably required). Get the latest in weird End times news of the world at large from Johhny Lemuria's THE END TIMES.
THE STARK FIST OF REMOVAL 32 page printed zine has been FINISHED by guest editor St. Chris Li, of QUIJIBO fame, and will be printed and mailed to members the SECOND we have the necessary $2000. Which is why ALL SUBGENIUS FANATICS need to IMMEDIATELY LAY INTO "BOB" WITH ALL THEIR MIGHT, checkbook-wise, and BUY these BRAND NEW PRODUCTS THAT WE OURSELVES CAN MANUFACTURE IN THE CHURCH RUMPUS ROOM, AND DON'T HAVE TO PAY ANY CONSPIRACY PUBLISHERS, DISTRIBUTORS, MIDDLEMEN OR FACTORIES TO HELP CREATE.
To JUST PLAIN FLAT OUT DONATE $$ TO THE CHURCH is really the smartest thing you can do at this point. Watch the news for 5 minutes if you doubt that. The miracle of CREDIT CARDS and PAYPAL have made it EASY! DO YOUR PART! KEEP THE PIPE LIT!
The seriously dedicated SubSITE volunteer may download a whole issue's raw text and html files, with which to toil away for the greater glory of The Man with the Pipe. Ambitious web designers are welcomed, nay, URGED to download and remake our helter-skelter indexes, and email Rev. Stang their beautifully revised versions, complete with writer accreditation, working links and all!
