    According to a poster on ESMB there is a lot of activity to finish the ideal org in the twin cities area (Minneapolis/St. Paul). It would be interesting to see if they are burning the midnight oil in the builiding, and if it looks like they will indeed open in August.

    Bump. The Twin Cities Idle Org is almost ready to be opened.

    Any chance of getting those awesome Minneapolis/St. Paul anons back on the case? I haven't seen them post much here in a good while.

    Saturday Oct. 22 @ noon: performance by some crappy band that nobody's heard of
    Saturday Oct. 22 @ 1 p.m.: Grand Opening®
    Saturday Oct. 22 @ 6 p.m.: Dinner starts. Performance by Jim Meskimen, brainzapped C-list celeb. Bullshit propaganda about expansion.

    Sunday Oct. 23 @ 11 a.m.: first-ever Sunday Service (religious cloaking while reporters are around ftw)
    Sunday Oct. 23 @ noon: brunch
    Sunday Oct. 23 @ 1 p.m.: Bullshit backslapping session. Probably a hard sell for $$$ or staff contracts too.

    Culties are coming from all over nation. There will probably never be more koolaid drinkers in the Twin Cities than on that day.

    Bump in anticipation of some fun stuff coming up in the next few days. You'll have to wait and see.

    Feel free to dump links into this thread with any media coverage the Twin Cities grand opening may receive, too.

    Well, we may have to settle for a crossposted raid report from

    Found this on youtube. You'll need a magnifying glass to see the tiny dawrf.

    I don't why but of all the Idle Borg openings, that one just seems that bit more creepy than usual.
    It could be the cellphone video from the audience perspective and/or the style of the building that kinda makes it look a bit like a neo-nazi rally, especially with the talk of "planetery clearing" reverberating around the city street.

    At 1:06 in the above video: "Speed of progress in the lower grades to Clear is about to increase by a factor of 10."

  17. Did I hear that right? Did that video end with "we'd better get going" from the videographer or someone close by?
    I wonder if he is referring to going 'up the bridge' or escaping from the event before the crush regging starts.

    Miscavige's voice sounds increasingly damaged by whiskey and smoke every time I hear it.

    It's his asthma too. Very obvious. In the official videos of his speeches you can hear the underlying wheeze in breath pauses.

    Here's some media....
    City and state officials just brimming with joy over new Church Of Scientology in St. Paul
    A.V. Club 24th Oct 2011,63899/
    Council member, Dave Thune's website: where you can comment directly to him, or maybe tweet him with your feelings on the matter.

    and here's scientology's own PR via Yahoo
    Note that the original PRweb source ( has an embedded page source frame to scientology's own website (which has the hi-res photos and video media).
    A youtube version will probably pop up on their "scientologymedia" channel at some point.

    Your complete list of poon targets....

    Remember, Hubbard said that not smoking enough causes cancer. The whiskey just potentises the nicotine.

    Davey keeps a wide comfort zone between himself and the unwashed masses, for fear some "suppresso" in the audience may attempt to assassinate him.

    Here's a high resolution PR pic of the grand opening of the Soylent Green Processing Station....

    I wonder what criteria DM uses for deciding if the Scientology cross will be prominently displayed on the outside of the ideal orgs, if it was an important symbol to them religously it would be displayed on all their churches.
