Order of the Pineapple 2017: Miley Ray Cyrus and Connie Dobbs

The original drawing of Pat Pineapple made by Ĕk-sĕn-trĭks Cluborguild member Toby Bruno in about 1982.

The Order of the Pineapple is only awarded once a year on January 18, and this is it.

The honorees for 2017 are: Connie Dobbs and Miley Ray Cyrus.

Miley Ray Cyrus (honorary DAP name Smiley Day Eris) was a Disney Princess who transformed into a Discordian American Princess.  She flashes the Discordian hand sign, sang the song ’23,’ changed her name from Destiny Hope to Miley Ray which is more like Discordian Saint Minnie Rae, founded the non-profit Happy Hippie Foundation, and twerked and spanked a midget.

Connie Dobbs is the first and primary wife of polygamist and Church of the SubGenius founder J. R. “Bob” Dobbs and the “;REAL leader” of the Church of the SubGenius. She has been an actress (primarily known for her work in childrens’ programs), model, homemaker, and is the founder of Home for Slackless Children, an inspiration for Shamlicht Kids Club.

The Order of the Pineapple is also called the DisOrder of the Pineapple and the Pineapple DisOrder, but it’s usually abbreviated O.P.  (The award has also been called Patus Pineappleus Bromeliadic and the winners The P.P. Bromeliadics or Bromedliaddicts). It honors those who have given extraordinary service to “the participatorial study of comedic attitudes and eccentric tendencies.”  The O.P. is awarded to very few people, those who are especially servicey.  It’s presented on only one day a year, January 18 CE, which is 18 Chaos of the Discordian calendar.  That date is recognized as Pat Pineapple Day.  Pat is the Mascot of the ECG and Patron Saint of the D D of the ECG.  It is absolutely required that members of the Order eat something containing or resembling pineapple on January 18–unless of course they don’t feel like it.

Congratulations to them both!

I Am Reverend Loveshade

sister_creamy_bhs

I Am Reverend Loveshade. Isn’t everyone? (Image is from the music video for “Black Hole Sun” performed by Soundgarden.  No threat to its copyright is intended.)

If you don’t know, there’s a paranoid conspiracy theory that everyone who mentions Reverend Loveshade without grossly insulting him must be Reverend Loveshade.

And if you don’t know, almost nobody who doesn’t know me IRL believes my name. Is my name really Miley Spears? Yes. Is that the name I was born with? No.

I had to show my driver’s license to stay on Facebook when they had the “fake name purge.” I’ve posted my SCA membership card, PETA membership card, ASPCA membership card, ACLU membership card, and more online. When they accepted my SCA name (Ariel Lovechild) and device (with a pentacle and a mermaid), it threw out a precedent and set a new one here. I’m an admin at Discordia Wiki and SubGenius WIki and Peta Wiki and wrote featured articles at Uncyclopedia and Uncyclopedia (two different ones), and a Wikipedia editor.

I was accepted by Order of the Pineapple (so was Reverend Loveshade) and the Knights of Buh. There’s an article about a protest I did in Minnesota, my college career, and more online. See also this.

Who’s been accused of being Reverend Loveshade? Miley Spears, Pope Hilde, Adam Gorightly, Gypsie Skripto, Brenton Clutterbuck, Dr. Howland Owll, Dr. Howl, Alan Moore, Robert Anton Wilson, Alden Loveshade, Greg Hill, Kerry Thornley, Sheered Völva, S. John Ross, Richard Nixon. (Feel free to add to the list here if you think of someone else). I know three of these who really did write as Reverend Loveshade at one time or another, but I don’t think all of them did! And some of them were accused after they were dead!

One of the people on that list got served a certified legal notice from my family, then posted online that he was wrong about me being an prostitute and I was not Reverend Loveshade.

But if they want me to be Reverend Loveshade, fine. I Am Reverend Loveshade. Isn’t everyone?

So spread the word! Post that you’re Reverend Loveshade, or that somebody else is Reverend Loveshade. Make a list!

Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia 10 Year Anniversary

Cover of the pulled edition of Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht.

No, it’s not the 10-year anniversary of the book. Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht came out just a couple years ago–then was pulled from publication very, very quickly. (Obscenity? Plagiarism? Government Crackdown?)

And no, it’s not the 10-year anniversary of when it began. The earliest Discordian pieces written by Reverend Loveshade that appear in Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia were written in late 1994.

But it is the 10-year anniversary of Reverend Loveshade’s vision to begin the collection. The Rev. was in hiding on Mid Year’s day, 2 July 2005, on a friend’s small farm in Texas. That was where and when the dream vision of Cherub Princess Shamlicht to write the book came in a dream.

And though the book, which received blurbs from Alan Moore, R. Crumb, Robert Anton Wilson and Rev. Ivan Stang, was pulled, it appears Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia may return in 2016….

Order of the Pineapple Winners 2014

DisOrder of the Pineapple

Yes, it’s time to announce the new inductees into the Order of the Pineapple:

His Wholiness the Rev. DrJon and Miley Spears.

Miley Spears: She wrote or co-wrote “Discordianism” and got two articles on Discordian American Princesses featured on Uncyclopedia, and was the primary influence behind making DAPs its own category.  Miley wrote or co-wrote Discordian items for Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht, s23.org wiki, Urban Dictionary, and Intermittens Magazine, and also writes for Wikipedia.

His Wholiness the Rev. DrJon (aka Rev. DrJon Swabey): He compiled what is probably the 21st century’s first Discordian tome Apocrypha Discordia which included both new and old-but-previously-unknown Discordian material.  DrJon retrieved an early version (thought at the time to be  the first) of Principia Discordia, and wrote an outroduction for the first hardback edition since 1976 for Principia Discordia.

The Order, sometimes called the DisOrder of the Pineapple, began in 1982 and is awarded on 18 January.  It was begun by the Ek-sen-triks Cluborguild and honors those who have given extraordinary service in “the participatorial study of comedic attitudes and eccentric tendencies.”

Last year’s winners were Adam Gorightly and S. John Ross (Pope Leo), and other winners this decade were Alan Moore, Dr. Demento, Professor Cramulus, Professor Mu-Chao, R. Crumb, and Sondra London.  So far no one’s turned down the award — without quoting Groucho Marx.

Congratulations to the new winners! Remember to eat something having to with pineapple on January 18!

Reverend Loveshade & Ms. M.C. Baby 2

Can we say preggers?

Yes, Reverend Loveshade and Ms. M.C. are excitedly expecting their second bundle of joy!  Expected due date is 2014 June 15, but you know how babies are.  Really the whole commune is expecting the baby as they are one big extended family.

Their first daughter, Puffletoes Twinkleton, was born about the date in 2011.  (You might have guessed that’s the girl’s Discordian, not legal name).

As it happens, Lorien Loveshade is expecting a new niece any day now.

Congrats!

John F. Kennedy and the Second Oswald

Late Marine buddies Kerry Thornley and Lee Harvey Oswald — which is which?

Was Discordianism co-creator Kerry Wendell Thornley involved in the 1963 assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy?  Was Thornley really the first — and only — person to write a book about alleged Kennedy killer Lee Harvey Oswald before the assassination?

Order of the Pineapple Winners 2013

The Disorder of the Pineapple

The envelop for The Order of the Pineapple, please. The pineapples go to:

Adam Gorightly and S. John Ross.

S. John Ross (Pope Leo). The mind behind Novus Ordo Discordia, the Gospel of St. Pesher the Gardener, author of Steve Jackson Games’ Warehouse 23, creator of Risus and fonts used by Discordians, and “foreplayer” (foreword writer) for Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht. Patriarch Wilhelm Leonardo Pesher-Principle was a major contributor to Apocrypha Discordia, likely the first (and often considered one of the best) Discordian work of the 21st century.
Adam Gorightly. Author of The Prankster and the Conspiracy: The Story of Kerry Thornley and How He Met Oswald and Inspired the Counterculture. This is considered the primary work covering Thornley and the early Discordians, and uncovered much that was unknown. The Shadow Over Santa Susana: Black Magic, Mind Control, and “The Manson Family” Mythos is one of the most complete compilations of Charles Manson and the Manson family. He is known as the “Crackpot Historian.”
The Order of the Pineapple (aka The DisOrder of the Pineapple) honors those who contribute to discord and ek-sen-trik tendencies above and beyond the call of duty.
