Fauxist Moon Bomb Amateur Telescopy PARTY UPDATE
With a little over a week until NASA’s LCROSS mission fires into the lunar surface,
the Fauxists are busy organising for Our Moon Bomb Amateur Telescopy Party. Gathering telescopy supplies, setting up our satellite connections, preparing presentations, costumes, ritualistics & scientific victuals!
Images L & R: Recent examples of anti-Moon Bomb protest. Our upcoming publication “The ‘How I Learnt to Stop Worrying and Love The Moon Bomb’ Shuffle” includes an in-depth survey of reactions to the moon bomb from various groups, individual narratives from Fauxist Members, & an investigation into transhumanism(s), the ‘necessity of leaving earth’, space hotels and tourism, & the historical impacts of Space.
More linked locations are constantly being confirmed…the Party HQ has been confirmed, at ‘Gods-Wig’- 88 Angel st. Newtown, Sydney. From here you will be at the centre of this global event as Our representatives beam their work in. With a view to the sky, big-screen live feed of the impact, a moonscape photo-space, the Fauxist Science Bureau (incorporating the ‘Infinite Anus: Oracular Orifice’ Advice on Infinity Noise-Fortune Booth, a public testing interface for the productions of the Fauxist Chem-Bar, Educational Videos, Robot/alien makeovers, displays on Sex in Space), numerous performances and presentations spanning The Moon Bomb, Contestational Sciences, Mythopoetic Rituals, Hyperrational Apologetics, & Pointless Protest, the Sydney HQ is THE place to be on Impact Night!
Our US HQ in San Francisco, the original epigenesis point of the Moon Bomb Party, grows ever more wondrous under the auspicious aegis of Dr. Annie Danger, and promises to exceed all expectations. The frenetic scientific genius of Dr Annie- famed for her critical work on Autogynephilia (and anti-psychology), The Cube, The Feminine Apologetic, Lunar Greywater Systems and as Terry van Veen, riotous motivational speaker- will surely produce a startling array of erudite delights for the global audience. More information soon.
