Rev. Ivan Stang

Rev. Ivan Stang has (and sells) a Doktorate in the Forbidden Sciences from Dobbstown University, a Malaysian bastion of kookademia. He is the author of The Book of the SubGenius, High Weirdness by Mail, Three Fisted Tales of "Bob", Revelation X and The Bobliographon. He's the director of "ARISE!: the SubGenius Video" and numerous award winning animated films. A touring SubGenius preacher, spreading the word of J.R. "Bob" Dobbs, his syndicated radio show The Hour of Slack has enjoyed 23 years on the air. See for more, including many streaming videos.

The Secret History of the New Age

Among many other things, one major part of the sermon that Rev. Stang can predict concerns the actual, historical origins of what grew to become what we now call Rosicrucianism and all its countless spin-offs, including most of what's broadly categorized "New Age," from Theosophy to the OTO to (insert latest one here). Don't worry, it's not as long as the history of the whole Conspiracy, which started with the first nearsighted Neanderthal. Stang will try to cover as many other subjects as possible and work in a Q&A as well. Before the main feature, there will be a cartoon and a newsreel. If the list of Starwood workshops includes enough inadvertently funny titles, Stang will work those in too, as per tradition.
