|01:19 pm - The Discordians need a place to be hypocritical, too!|
Close your eyes, and imagine what a Discordian shrine would look like.
Now, respond with a comment about what you saw.
I'm seriously considering 5 acres of land in Eris, OH. I would like ideas. . .
Oh, and one other thing: would you support such a shrine?

You already know what I think.... our church will be contributing to you to build a temple and it better be worthy of the girl who stole my panties.
I keep thinking of a living room in disarray: clothes, linens, food, magazines, etc. all chaotically arranged... however, the chaos makes sense for the One who created it.
I would totally support it. Especially if you build a church and add a wing for your harem.

I had a series of visions.
One is a big barn, much like any other barn that doesn't seem particularly out of the ordinary. maybe a fun color, but nothing special.
Another is a mosque looking thing with a fun mural of eric around the outside of the spire. In my vision she was playing mother may I with a bunch of people.
I could also see a building that mixes many elements of faith oriented buildings, possibly in a reasonably random way, but that's more costly.
Or, a high ropes cource and firepit. (that's two things not one big deathtrap)

It should go without saying that I would support that and so would my crew.
a single converse all-star high-top, some bubble gum, and a really feckin' huge, insanely colorful tile mosaic.
support in what way? financially? manual labor? publicity?
All of the above. In particular, though, financially.
It would be cool!
I envision a large gazebo-like structure en plein aire, draped with rainbows of cloth underneath, and an alter that's highly eclectic because everyone can put offerings on it...
Well, my shrine would be on wheels...a winnibago, with a an array of LCDs on each side, and a large plasma display that can either be aimed out the rear window, or into the small theater in the back of the 'bago. As I drive, the side displays would have psycidelic dysplays synced to the music I was listening to, sometimes playing ShadoeVision, Insignifigince or any other slighly Erisian movie, or an animated spinning chaol. It would use the technology that turns any flat, rigid surface into a high-quality speaker, and I would host outdoor raves with the 'bago at the center. The plasma display would be aimed out the rear window when I am driving, hooked up to a computer that would allow me to say (Voice to Text) what I though of their last stupid attempt to pass me, or show what the vid-cam is seeing out of the front of the 'bago.
It would be a hybrid design using fuelcells/electric and disiel/biodisiel. solar cells would augment any electrical needs, and it would have a turbo-charger for those times when you need to pass someone....
O.K., so I have thought about this before...
A giant golden apple. And I would definetly support it.

I see a bunch of people discoursing wildly about their beliefs, not ever agreeing, but staying short of anger towards eachother through common goodwill and some usage of marijuana (where applicable by law only, of course).
I see old couches, tarps over picnic tables, gazebos found in dumps, detrius of pop culture (like life-size stand ups of Slave Leia and Homey the Clown) used, with the help of sawhorses, as alters.
I see not a lot of impact on the earth, in the long run, and a real sense of commune.
I see Erisians and other Freaks joining together, sticking apart as best they can while loving eachother with barnyard animal noises as greetings.
I see Creative Order and Creative Disorder focused in one area, trying hard not to escalate into Destructive Order or Destructive Disorder (and occasionally failing, thank Eris).
The beer cans are nicely thrown away into an old claw-foot bathtub reserved specifically for this purpose.
I will provide labor, as needed, if I can.
This may sound silly...but I just imaginined my altar completely rearranged randomly and very messy with a giant tree branch fallen over it.
Just the first thing that came into yonder head.
First, a room lit with candles. The walls are covered in drawings of Cool Things and on the shelves that strech around the room are weird things people throught Eris would like. Mantras, poems and slogans are painted over everything and at the far end is a cartoony statue of Goddess.
Outside there'd be space for meeting.
I want to support, but I need to check my finances.
Hmm, it sounds like your bedroom.
Don't ask me how I know what your bedroom ought to look like.
Well, yeah. I'm going to assume that was just a good guess.

Didn't the Illuminatus trilogy describe such a place?
Complete with a large hollow golden apple....
All I can visualize is silly string. :D
I saw a table covered with a lot of stuff. That is all :-)
I'd support such a shrine to what I am capable of. Which is not much at the moment.
The first thing I visualized was a Nerf Bow and Arrow set.
