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. Congratulations to the new winners! Remember to eat something having to with pineapple on January 18! See all the winners and more info at op.loveshade.org

Order of the Pineapple 2013: Adam Gorightly and S. John Ross

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="183"] The Disorder of the Pineapple[/caption]

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. It was first given in 1982 and is given each year on January 18 which is Pat Pineapple Day. Last year's winners were Doctor Demento and R. Crumb. To see a list of all winners, visit op.loveshade.org.

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

New York Review of Books: Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht

[caption id="attachment_1988" align="alignleft" width="300"]One of these World Naked Bike Ride partiers is an offspring of an original Ek-sen-trik. From Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht.[/caption] Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht is now listed in the New York Review of Books!  They list it as Philosophy/Humor, which is more-or-less accurate.  The book's been listed elsewhere as Educational, New Age, and Personal Development, which are more or less accurate too.  Of course it could also be listed as backup toilet paper. What book have Robert Anton Wilson (who saw an early draft), Rev. Ivan Stang, R. Crumb, Alan Moore, Sondra London aka The Erisian Elestria, Reverend Jason "Pee Kitty" Levine, Adam Gorightly, Johnny Shellburn, S. John Ross aka Pope Leo and Malaclypse the Younger aka Greg Hill (who never saw the whole book but read some selections) and others been talking about?  Feel free to find out! You can see comments by the above, preview it or buy it at Amazon.  Or even better you can buy it at discordia.loveshade.org/store. What's that?  You don't believe the New York Review of Books would actually list an independent Discordian tome?  Check http://assets.nybooks.com/media/ipl/independents.pdf  (Note this pdf may change with time).

Are You a Contributor?

Something about the book's publisher Anaphora Literary Press wanting to make money or something). One of these World Naked Bike Ride celebrants is an offspring of one of the original Ek-sen-triks.
