So I held back on posting one flyer from this weekend:

And after checking on that lead, this happened:

The store proprietor said that these books, along with copies of a number of other books that appear to be from the same author (including a spiralbound version of the "Compassion Over Passion Volume 1" book), have been in the store for several YEARS! Their apparent author comes in roughly once a week and "fiddles" with them, adding to the stacks and sometimes taking things away. And he wasn't aware that they were even for sale--there are loose sheets of the flyers which he understands to be on sale for ten cents each, but he there were no price tags on the books themselves and he wasn't aware of a sale price. After showing him the flyer above, which lists them as being for sale for $15 a piece, we produced a hand-made receipt and volumes 1-7 of the series (100 numbered flyers in each) were purchased.

I'm not sure what this means for the future of this blog project yet...

Paradise on Earth, Yeast connection to what?

Paradise on Earth, Women cannot be friends with pot

Paradise on Earth, pretified speeches with bold face lies

I guess the advice about having no commentary at conventions only applies to the convention you want to support!

Paradise on Earth, paper ballots tell the truth

Paradise on Earth, It's easy

I hope that some "local musicians" find the time to practice their stilt-walking trombone routines!

Paradise on Earth, invisible war movie

Paradise on Earth, How would you like to help out?

Paradise on Earth, Halt high virulent tuberculosis

Paradise on Earth, For these special children (variation)

We've seen this one before, except that the whole "dialogue" section at the end is different.

Paradise on Earth, develop minds often these seem like a form of Surrealist Catholicism, but occasionally we get enthusiastic doses of TM.

Special edition, Dear Doctor letter

No "Paradise on Earth" on this one...

Paradise on Earth, Commenting on Nobama's speech

This is really fascinating--check out the quite about 2/3s down the 2nd column, starting with "After all you don't call Russia..." A little punctuation swap, and you have a whole new concept!

Paradise on Earth, What would a person state from the grave?

Flash drives can go into a computer to take information out! So they do work properly...

Paradise on Earth, Therapy for the innocent spouse

It's interesting how the financial burden of seeing a shrink comes up in the 2nd column, yet many other flyers proclaim that health care can be ultra cheap.

Paradise on Earth, Test for molestation

More retroprimitive art healing...

Paradise on Earth, Schistomiasis

Candy bars stuffed with drugs!

Paradise on Earth, Ross and Lila

This is another good example of the shift from paranoid xenophobia to racism itself. The last paragraph of the "Twee and Al" section is quite disappointing.

Paradise on Earth, Men do no come into a woman's dorm!

Paradise on Earth: I will give you an A if you know the answers

I wonder where some of this political misinformation comes from? It's obvious from reading this series that its author tries to keep up with current events, world news, and political stuff, but even Fox isn't as wack as some of this stuff...

Paradise on Earth, Heaven on Earth

It's been kind of depressing watching the quaint xenophobia in these flyers shift toward straight-up racism over time. It's enough to make a person want to cuss...

Paradise on Earth, Facts about adultery

Paradise on Earth, the comet has arrived

Paradise on Earth, Children from San Francisco relax more

"Brain chemistry doctors" that don't go to med school? Sounds illegal to me--I think I'll call crime stoppers!

Paradise on Earth, Wednesday at the Republican Convention

Paradise on Earth, Tim and Janet

Paradise on Earth, Republican convention has too much critisism by media

Two flyers have already show up discussing the RNC. This one complains that critics are too harsh, as the title indicates, and the other complains that there isn't enough coverage...

Paradise on Earth, New parents of a former San Francisco child

Paradise on Earth, Date carefully

Paradise on Earth, Christ is here to help us out

Paradise on Earth 60, The best ideas - VARIATION

Here's yet another variation on an older flyer. We first saw number 60 in one of the very earliest batches of flyers that were discovered back in late 2010. It's amazing to note how even those older ones are still subject to revision and re-use! This one contains a number of changes from the older edit of the flyer, almost line-by-line modifications. Wild.
