Welcome Brothers and Sisters!
It’s been far too long, but thankfully today marks the parting of the clouds of my stormy work schedule, and more of my time is once again my own. Hopefully you’ll pardon the unexpected hiatus.
To celebrate this good news, I decided to carve off a chunk of time to tackle updating the neglected Membership Roster. For those of you who have just joined our ranks – thank you for your patience. I had been in talks with some website coders to try to automate the membership and ranking system – but those talks have stalled for the moment, and as such I’ve had to manually add all 342 new members AND painstakingly cross reference spreadsheets to update member rank by hand.
Not a kind task for someone who’s spent the past three weeks lost to mind numbing data entry, but our members are worth the hard work on my end.
Without further ado, please help me welcome the following new members!
Plan B Pascucci
Rachel Universe RU
Ran D. Alex
Sarah aka dat awesome fangirl
The Big Dipper
The Mayor of Hyrule
The Mayor of Laurvil
Tristan the Small
chris aka chapa
This is amazing! I do know it’s been a long time since the last update, but I’m both honored and amazed that the Royal Order of the Holy Mackerel has gained nearly 350 new card carrying members! I’ve even included new member “Mo” some weirdo who took the time to leave a long rambling threat to stop what I’m doing because vague secretive reasons and his personal friendship with Alex Hirsch.
Now, let’s dig into some rank advancements!

You should all be proud of your hard work and dedication as both old and new members alike have rocketed up the ranks. Remember, there’s no rush and this is no race. Rank advancement is always open, and you can tackle Royal Order of the Holy Mackerel Challenges whenever you have the time. But again – WELL DONE, EVERYONE!
Now to pick this update’s Member of the Week!
Admittedly this was a VERY easy choice. Member Gravity Falls News took on the challenge of personally approaching Alex Hirsch, Kristen Schaal, and Jason Ritter at the Gravity Falls Live event at the LA Film Fest in order to hand them each their own hand crafted Membership Kit that I designed specifically for each of them! It was most likely a daunting task given the huge crowd that showed up at the event, and I know first hand that those Membership Kits were not easy to carry. The best news is that the three of them seemed very excited to receive their kits!
So if you haven’t already, be sure to check out and follow Gravity Falls News across Tumblr (via the link above), Instagram, Twitter and more (links are on his Tumblr page).
Also, if you would like to get your hands on your own Membership Kit (or any of the various tools of our secret society) then be sure to swing by the Royal Order of the Holy Mackerel Store. Every purchase gets you some cool swag, and helps me get a little closer to getting a new computer – which sounds really greedy, but an updated computer means I can produce more videos per week!
Well I’ve learned my lesson about neglecting the Membership Roster for too long – and as such, I now plan to make 2 updates per week to stay on top of this dynamic list. Barring any surprises, I hope to make the next update on either this upcoming Thursday or Friday. So if you don’t see your name on this list just yet, be sure to keep your eyes peeled later in the week for the next update.
Due to all of the news that’s broke over the weekend, I’m really considering refilming the end of this week’s meeting – but I may just release it as is, and hopefully release a shorter extra meeting this week to discuss everything that’s been revealed about Season 2 (there are some HUGE secrets I need to talk about)!
But until our next meeting, keep an eye on the Royal Order’s Tumblr, G+, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages for updates about when those two meetings will be released! (Cross your fingers for my computer!)
