I'm sure you remember the recent story regarding the renaming of the San Francisco Bay Bridge for the man who first proposed it be built. Well, it seems that Oakland, particularly the City councilors, aren't feeling like going along. They believe him merely to be a historical homeless man, a figure of no consequence of importance.

They should be educated as to the folly of their disrespect for our beloved Emperor. But how? Here's how:

From the city of Oakland website, email addresses from those who need to know about Emperor Norton, the man who proposed the Bay Bridge in the first place...

Roland E. Smith, City Auditor: resmith@oaklandnet.com
Deborah Edgerly, City Administrator: cityadministrator@oaklandnet.com
Nancy Nadel, District 3: nnadel@oaklandnet.com
Henry Chang, At-Large: cityochang@aol.com
Desley Brooks, District 6: dbrooks@oaklandnet.com
Danny Wan, District 2: dwan@oaklandnet.com
Larry Reid, District 7: lreid@oaklandnet.com
John Russo, City Attourney: jrusso@oaklandcityattourney.org
Jean Quan, district 4: jquan@oaklandnet.com
Ceda Floyd, City Clerk: cityclerk@oaklandnet.com
Jerry Brown, Mayor: officeofthemayor@oaklandnet.com
Jane Brunner, District 1: jbrunner@oaklandnet.com
Ignacio De La Fuente, District 5: idelafuente@oaklandnet.com

I propose a jake, a mass emailing to these individuals to persuade them that the Emperor deserves his due.

We are a tribe of philosophers, theologians, magicians, scientists, artists, clowns and similar maniacs who are intrigued with Eris, Goddess of Confusion, and her doings.

We believe She sent visions to Her chosen emissaries, later known as Omar Ravenhurst and Malaclypse the Younger, which led them to record the sacred scripture, the Principia Discordia.

The principles of our faith are contained within the Principia, but for those whose Eris-given insight doesn’t find it sufficient, we recognize that several other scriptures contain portions of Her holy message.

We believe Eris speaks to each person individually, and guides his or her actions toward her goals, which are incomprehensible to humankind.

We believe some persons are more adept than others are recognizing Eris’ voice, and we accord those persons the respect due their holy status.

We attempt to understand Eris’ message as expressed through all that exists. We attempt to bring understanding of Eris’ message to others.

We believe that all things are true in some sense, false in some sense, meaningless in some sense, true and false in some sense, true and meaningless in some sense, false and meaningless in some sense, and true and false and meaningless in some sense.

Feel free to share widely or delete from your harddrive. Feedback welcome; I intend to inflict this on the IRS along with other backround details of Discordianism.

'Tis the season to consume.

So the perfect way to cause a little chaos, and maybe protest a little...
Walk through a mall, very slowly.
It results in exchanges like this:

Security: You have to stop that or I'll have to remove you.
Us: Stop what?
Security: What you are doing.
Us: What are we doing?
Security: You are creating a spectacle.
Us: How are we creating a spectacle?
Security: Well... uh... you are walking slowly.
Us: We can't walk slowly?
Security: No.
Us [pointing to an elderly person moving across the mall very slowly]: Well, what about her? She's moving very slowly.
Security: No, she's moving at the appropriate speed -- you are moving too slowly.
Us: Can you show us what is the appropriate speed? I mean, how slowly can we walk and still remain in the mall?
Security [getting flustered]: No, you simply have to leave the mall. Leave the mall or I will call the police to remove you.

(Conversation stolen from a magazine article, but I don't remember which one.)

Ladies and gentlemen,
drop your borders
When the provisional Ohio votes are counted and if George W. Bush is re-elected, single, sexy, American liberals - already a threatened species - will be desperate to escape.
These lonely, afraid (did we mention really hot?) progressives will need a safe haven.
You can help. Open your heart, and your home. Marry an American. Legions of Canadians have already pledged to sacrifice their singlehood to save our southern neighbours from four more years of cowboy conservatism.
Marry an American >>

Posted to their Comments:

As a Discordian American, who is utterly sickened by the state this country has fallen to, I would like to praise your beautifully chaotic attempt to ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. I hereby Grant the title of Pope, to you and everyone in your organization, and, as that will allow you to marry the Americans to the Canadians yourselves, this should speed the whole process up. You may view, and or print out your Official, and Authorized by the House of Apostles of Eris, Pope Cards here: http://www.principiadiscordia.com/book/43.php

Well I wanted to join the Sixth Trinity Church o' Eris, but as usual it looks like I am just ahead of my time so this will have to do I suppose.

Okay . . .

No one's posted here in a while, so I thought I'd say this:

Bill Maher (among many others, I'm sure) has pointed out that a great deal of the world's conflicts can be traced to organized religion. I observe that little, if any, can be traced to disorganized religion. So it is our duty to disorganize religion as much as possible, so as to increase the peace.

Here's to Whirled Peas!

In order to do that I need to get him to read the principia discordia, which he will do if I tell him where to get a copy for his palmtop. Anyone know where to find one?

Hail Eris!

The lart began when I saw several friends complain about [livejournal.com profile] wiccans_unite. The maintainer of the new comm had copied the user info, icons, and interests straight out of [livejournal.com profile] wiccan, where the [livejournal.com profile] wiccans_unite maintainer had a falling out over various new Wiccan topics which are familiar to several of us.

Thus [livejournal.com profile] wiccans_untie was born. Days later [livejournal.com profile] blackthornglade was libeled, and indicated to be the creator (since they had joined, while I had not). I quickly corrected the mistake, but found an abuse complaint of copyright infringement against me. Fortunately the claim was fraudulent, as the content in [livejournal.com profile] wiccans_untie's info originally appeared in [livejournal.com profile] wiccan and [livejournal.com profile] silvertree has (if I interpret "Np." correctly) granted her permission for the use of that text in [livejournal.com profile] wiccans_untie (she was in fact notified as soon as I created the lart.)

Unfortunately the Digital Millennium Copyright Act requires that I submit to a legally stringent commitment. The abuse team has advised me to seek legal representation, so here I am!

FYI I am in the 9th Federal Legislative District(?) Eastern Washington U.S. Court District (easy, 30 minute drive for me).

So.... there's an update to the Construction page. Some of the various suggestions are running underneath the hood. See what's added. WOOT!

Here it is! Still blinding!

REQUEST FOR HELP: I have a pretty nice piece of html made to make a form, but something's wrong! And I can't figure what it is. All I get is an email that says the first field, no more. Can anyone fix that? OR: Does anyone here know php? Does anyone here know perl well enough to make this form function?

Drop me a line:


Thanks all you nice peoples!

EDIT 2.0: I fixed the possible link problem on this page. Which wasn't the problem. The issue's been resolved. You may now be blinded with impunity. :-)

Greetings, my name is Margi, and I would like to contribute some thoughts to the group; and hopefully open a discussion related to symbolism and paradigm and Eris.

Most of my personal spirituality studies include the study of deities, and what concepts or symbols they share. I do not hope to make them *one* deity, only that the paradigm they share is interesting to me. I consider myself an admirer of Lilith, whom I will be making some rough comparisons to Eris in the rest of my post. Lilith and Eris and a possible shared paradigm. )

Fifth Trinity Church o' Eris now has a page up on the web. It of course leads back to [livejournal.com profile] fifthtrinity. But, as soon as I talk with our gracious host, and [livejournal.com profile] elfwreck, I will be putting up an auto-submit form/construction page until I have all the information in place, and the links built!

Look here. It's blinding.

WooHAAA! Hahahahahaha!

Let's see...other Goddesses I've worked with.

Morgan. Malicious sense of humor. Rumored to govern an Isle of Apples.

Artemis. "Kalliste" among Her titles.

Kali. Named in an introduction to the Principia Discordia as "short for Kallisti" and some manner of kindred spirit, if not an aspect.

All Goddesses are one Goddess and She is Eris.

Form 1023, Schedule A, question 1: Provide a brief history of the development of the organization, including the reasons for its formation.

What it needs to cover (IMHO):
• Religion itself long dormant, as Eris' spirit left mankind; as she has recently returned her attention to us, her church is necessary to guide mankind's spiritual development.
• Erisian Vision to the Polyfather & his sidekick
• History of the Annual Discordian Ritual, which has grown into something of a movement, inspiring other Discordians to hold their own religious services
• General disrespect & discrimination that Erisians face require a central church to advocate on their behalf and explain the tenets of our faith to outsiders.
• Eris told me to make a church.

What I've got so far: choppy description inside )
Any input? Things I've left out that should be included, specific examples to fill in the blanks? I haven't figured out how to say "Eris told me to make a church" in high legalese.

Form 1023 (the IRS form that's used to apply for tax-exempt, 501(c)3 status) has a spot to check whether your group is a Corporation, a Trust, or an Association.

Can I do this without incorporating? (Note that hypothetically, I can do this without any paperwork at all; churches are not required to file a form 1023. But I want official recognition, and our ministers to be officially acknowledged, so I'm going the paperwork route.) Anyone know what the real difference is between a "Corporation" and an "Association?" (They'll want more paperwork for an association, but it looks like I don't have to file it with state officials.)

I'd rather avoid the hassles of incorporation for now if that's feasible.

So I've gotten several offers of webspace, and several more people have offered their 1337 H4X0R 5K1LLZ in setting up said webpage. I am overwhelmed with generosity. And a bit bemused.

Obviously, you people have NO LIVES. While I've been learning to change diapers & cook beef stroganoff, you've been learning how to make electrons bounce through wires a thousand miles away. You are all appointed Pope of the Lost Pixel Cabal. Be very, very ashamed.

Anyway, I was considering taking you *ALL* up on the offers, and having five or six "Official Fifth Trinity Church" websites. Whaddaya think? Start this web-presense with a proper Discordian approach? (I'll try to get around to emailing this to everyone who sent me email addressess--I dutifully noted them in the new Fifth Trinity Members & Interested Persons excel sheet--but I'm a bit spacey right now, and it'll probably take me a day or two. Don't worry, the church isn't going anywhere in the meantime.)
