旼컴컴컴컴컴 MOO-JUICE 읕컴컴컴컴컴 The Organ of the International MOOist Conspiracy Printed & Published by the Office of the Cardinal Richelieus 旼컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴 Theta-1 November 4th 1992 읕컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴 Recently it has been disclosed that the Cardinal Richelieu Hellhound 101 encountered one who may indeed have been Kerry Wendell Thornley (also known as Omar Ravenhurst) while living in Atlanta, GA in 1987. Kerry Wendell Thornley (co-author of the Principia Discordia) wrote some books while living in Atlanta in 1985, as well as a regular bulletin called KULTCHA of which he released 42 issues in 1986 (30 of which have come into the possession of the Hellhound 101). At the Atlanta Fantasy Faire, the Hellhound had the enjoyable company of a bizarre older man who talked a lot about conspiracy theories and about the the RSVP (Revolutionary Surrealist Vandal Party), as well as occasional references to "Brother-In-Law said so and so about the Nazis" and such. (For more information on Brother-In-Law, read KULTCHA.) As this person may have just been another Conspiracy Theorist who had read the KULTCHA series, he will from now on be refered to as Omar-X, as I may indeed be wrong as to his identity. (He called himself Tom Miethe). It turns out that the real Tom Miethe was one of Hitler's rocket scientists who wound up working for AVRO in Canada after the war. I had, at that time, the first 30 bulltins of KULTCHA in my possession but had not yet had time to read them. If I had, who knows what would have resulted from that same conversation. Also, it should be noted that Omar Ravenhurst is given the credit by Margot Adler (in DRAWING DOWN THE MOON) for giving the Wiccans th title of Pagans. "The Discordian Society was founded in 1957 or 1958 by Greg Hill and Kerry Thornley, Omar Ravenhurst went on to form his own Erisian organization, the Erisian Liberation Front (ELF). Other Erisian cabals formed. At one point there were rumoured to be more than twenty, although some may have had a membership of only one. Since radical decentralization is a Discordian Principle, it is impossible to know haw many Discordians there were and are, or what they are doing. Most of these Cabals engaged in various nonviolent, absurdist, revolutionary, magical and surrealist endeavors. A number of these "actions" were done under the name of the supposed "Bavarian Illuminati", a rather mysterious organization founded by Adam Weishaupt in 1776. The Erisian "Illuminati" have mostly been inspirations of someone known as Thomas the Gnostic. Similar actions were initiated by ELF. Omar Ravenhurst, for example, invented a Do-It-Yourself Conspiracy Kit, complete with assortments of stationery bearing dubious letterheads.... "I asked Malaclypse, "What's Omar Ravenhurst doing these days?" He said, "Ravenhurst has recently been in a state of extreme discord. We were talking about Eris and confusion and he said, "You know, if I had realized that all of this was going to come TRUE, I would have chosen Venus."!" -- Margot Adler, DRAWING DOWN THE MOON MOO-JUICE Organ of the Internation MOOist Conspiracy
