International Day of Slayer -- June 6, 2011

Quote
The Inter-National Day of Slayer is coming up on June 6, 2011.



The International Day of Slayer is a worldwide holiday for metalheads by metalheads.

Slayer is an emblem of metal: fast, powerful, still alien to the mainstream after 28 years.

If every other religious, ethnic and political group gets their own holiday, we deserve one too.



On June 6th:

Who is Slayer

Slayer is a band from California. Their music has come to epitomize Satanic speed metal music in the latter half of the 20th century. Their 1986 album, "Reign in Blood" is one of the single most influential metal albums of all time, typified by the modern classic "Angel of Death".

How to Celebrate


* Listen to Slayer at full blast in your car.
* Listen to Slayer at full blast in your home.
* Listen to Slayer at full blast at your place of employment.
* Listen to Slayer at full blast in any public place you prefer.

DO NOT use headphones! The objective of this day is for everyone within earshot to understand that it is the National Day of Slayer. National holidays in America aren't just about celebrating; they're about forcing it upon non-participants.
Taking that participation to a problematic level

* Stage a "Slay-out." Don't go to work. Listen to Slayer.
* Have a huge block party that clogs up a street in your neighborhood. Blast Slayer albums all evening. Get police cruisers and helicopters on the scene. Finish with a full-scale riot.
* Spray paint Slayer logos on churches, synagogues, or cemeteries.
* Play Slayer covers with your own band (since 99% of your riffs are stolen from Slayer anyway).
* Kill the neighbor's dog and blame it on Slayer.

It'd be great to get some fire coming for this one, which arrives in about 2 weeks (Monday, June 6).


How can we get this some momentum?

http://www.anus.com/metal/hall/index.php/topic,13072.msg63769.html#new

Obvious stuff:

1. Post to your last.fm, facebook, digg, reddit, 4chan, metal forums, email lists, etc.
2. See if we can scare national churches into going on alert that day
3. Phone our local media representatives and harass them
4. Flash mob
5. Rent a billboard

Any others?

Some major social networking sites have had some NDoS links spammed. Judging from last year, the promoters are just getting warmed up. They're even sneaking links into idle comments.

Yes, needed. I noticed the mediafire pages for last year's flyers were either loading slow or not responding. The image files may have gotten migrated over to an archive database. Who knows? A fresh upload for some 2011 flyers would help all the people distributing.

We could also use some that are black/white with more white than black, so they're readable.

Simple, direct and with a huge Slayer logo, four to an 8.5x11" page.

When you get tired of Slayer, blast Massacra for Fred Duvals death-day! Much more important for a Hessian than birth-days!

I don't think this would gain ANY momentum where I live; there are virtually zero metalheads in my town, they fliers would probably just be torn down. Oh well, worth a shot.

This is the one I made last year (the b&w):
