A Firesign Chat


Special appearance by
Phil Austin

||||||||| Catherwood re-enters the Waiting Room and explains "This is the main discussion room which is logged each night."
||||||||| Catherwood announces, "The time is 4:33 AM - I now declare Thursday's chat log for December 05, 2002 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, December 05, 2002 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!" -- then he looks around at the empty room, looks at his watch, and mumbles "...am I early?"
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 9:11 PM, dragging Merlyn LeRoy by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this bozo?"
Merlyn LeRoy: Hmm, 16 minutes fast...
||||||||| Catherwood ushers JustAMinuteFlatFoot into the room, accepts a grimy quarter as a gratuity, mumbles something about 9:14 PM, then departs.
Merlyn LeRoy: hello
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: howdy
Merlyn LeRoy: slow so far...
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: so it seems
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: New time: Thursday, December 05, 2002 20:00:02CST
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: according to About Time
||||||||| cease imril enters at 9:17 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and runs off to the Haberdashery Barn.
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: Hi cat
cease imril: hello again
Merlyn LeRoy: hey cat!
Merlyn LeRoy: hey flatfoot, who R U?
cease imril: i've just returned from rome
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "9:17 PM and late as usual, it's doctec_snowbound, just back from Billville."
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: how is the hot and humid Great Northern Rain forest tonight
doctec_snowbound: what happened to your nose!?
Merlyn LeRoy: what has happened to your nose?
cease imril: vancouver is cold. no surprise
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: snow bored as well?
doctec_snowbound: I just shoveled six inches of snow
cease imril: madrid was getting near vancouver in temp when we left last weekend
doctec_snowbound: it was a really tiny patch...
||||||||| Ken waltzes in at 9:19 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: have you seen Spider Robinson or Jeannie lately?
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Dexter Fong close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 9:19 PM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the Aviary.
doctec_snowbound: no, really, we got six inches of snow coverage
Ken: good evening, dear friends
cease imril: do you know them?
doctec_snowbound: did Lili's driveway, walkways & porch
Ken: and cat! welcome back
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: why yes, he was our guest here in bama a few long years ago
Dexter Fong: Evening Dear Friends also...and a special hello to Cat =)
cease imril: hey kend. not in jail for geting that pornographic postcard?
doctec_snowbound: cat, i saw you tried to call my cell, have not listened to the msg yet... things have been so craaay-zee at this end post turkeyday weekend
cease imril: i met them most recently in may as i recall. bought his new cd, gave them copies of my latest
doctec_snowbound: i've barely had the time to eat/sleep/work my ass off
Ken: cat, porno, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. the usps gave it to me, they lost their chance then to nail me
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: ah, turkey day, and we all became indians
cease imril: of course, its turkey time for you yanks
doctec_snowbound: yank that turkey
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: oh, I mean incomprhensibles
Dexter Fong: Just: Except NPR which became chicken
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: ha
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: no surprize there
cease imril: too bad about npr
cease imril: maybe they think its giving aid and comfort to sadam
Merlyn LeRoy: BTW doc, fst.com bandwidth has been over 500kb/sec for about the last 2 weeks...don't know why, but that's higher than byron wants
Dexter Fong: NPR=National Poultry Reserve
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: it was a shorter piece than they wished for the slot maybe, yeah, that's the reason
Ken: dex: should we do a nice chicken marsala with them?
doctec_snowbound: brb
Dexter Fong: Lemme catch my Torri
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: 500 KB/sec is a LOT of width, is that costing more for them hosts?
Merlyn LeRoy: I think they had more bits to pad it out to 7-8 minutes, but without PTIP they couldn't run the rest
cease imril: i spoke with david ossman earlier this week and he seemed to think the xmas show would be broadcast
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Dave close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 9:23 PM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the Aviary.
Ken: you mean the xmas show will be "comprehensible"?
cease imril: so its not as if the firesign has been shut out of npr
Dexter Fong: Hey Dave
cease imril: and speaking of daves,
Ken: hi dave
Merlyn LeRoy: "Firesign Theatre: now with comprehensible"
Dexter Fong: I can dig it brother
Dave: hey guys and gals, I might not be on for long, I've got a lot of math homework, I'll say random things when I get the chance, say nice things about me when I'm gone, lol
Ken: i guess incomprehensible is much better than reprehensible. i've been called that before
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: but not lately Ken
doctec_snowbound: back...
Ken: dave, why wait until you're gone? you're a wonderful guy, a model for all of america, and a swell chap to boot
Dexter Fong: Ken: Thanks for the Spam Flash =)
cease imril: all of europe was incomprehensible
cease imril: i kept thinking, what are all these mexicans doing here?
doctec_snowbound: well, so far Byron has not said anything to me about the bandwidth issue since the last time it came up...
Dexter Fong: Ken: Boot out the door?
cease imril: then i realized, they live here
Ken: cat: did you get to the british isles at all? at least they speak a form of english there
Ken: dex: 9 1/2 wide for me
doctec_snowbound: ...and I'm figuring that with the XM show having been cancelled, the bandwidth usage should drop a bit
cease imril: just heathrow airport, twice. nice airport
Dave: hey boots, I need some of those with the weather, brb, gotta do some fucking useless shit that I don't understand
Dexter Fong: Ken: Is that in Ladies models or something else?
Merlyn LeRoy: probably. Like I say, I'm not sure why it's up.
doctec_snowbound: two pies are squared
Ken: i'm all man (last time i looked anyway)
Dexter Fong: K: Oh...those weren't your shoes?
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: don't look now, rocky, it's a horror
cease imril: for industry
Ken: my shoes are sitting by the back door, with puddles of melting snow under them.
cease imril: there's a museum of what look like roman shoe boxes in siena.
doctec_snowbound: in just seven says, i can make you a Man!
Ken: i hate winter. bah, humbug
Dexter Fong: Where there's no smoke, there's downsizing
cease imril: as we walked through it, kept saying, over and over, shoes for industry, shoes for the dead
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: told you to move to the south, years ago, dude
cease imril: have a picture of it somewhere
Ken: well, i'm all man except i DO eat quiche on occasion
Ken: yeah, flatfoot, i should be there
Dexter Fong: Eat quiche and tell?
Merlyn LeRoy: cat, shoot me your snail address so I can send you a firesign XM DVD
cease imril: quiche is better in france
doctec_snowbound: OK I have to take a break for a little bit - Lili just served some Insalata Caprese for us to appetize ourselves...
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: all man here and I make quiche on occassion, ha
||||||||| doctec_snowbound runs out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's doctec_snowbound?! It's 9:29 PM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "9:29 PM and late as usual, it's doctec_eating, just back from Billville."
doctec_eating: back in a short while
Ken: wow, can you appetize me also?
cease imril: i'm sure it'll taste better than any of the insalata caprese's we had
Merlyn LeRoy: you can just put the parentheses on, doc
Dave: MATH IN BRAILLE IS A FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT, well, paper and dots really, either way, I FUCKING HATE IT, imagine guys that your long division problems take up twelve lines and you can sometimes fit three problems a page
Dexter Fong: Ken: One pill makes you smaller
cease imril: no shit, dave
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: yeah, dave, it sucks
Merlyn LeRoy: dave, the decimal point must be hard to find
Ken: dave, it's got to be about as hard as roman numerals. every try division with them? (rhetorical question--i haven't either)
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: ha
Dexter Fong: Merl: =)
Ken: lol, brian!
cease imril: in reality roman numerals divide themselves, or just dissolve away
cease imril: a whole civilization you see dissolving before your eyes... but NOT fast ENOUGH
||||||||| the elevator boy waltzes in at 9:32 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
||||||||| At 9:32 PM, cease imril vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
Ken: hi, eleboy
Dexter Fong: Merl: How's the reaper this week?
the elevator boy: what prognostications???
Ken: yeah, i wanted to ask that too. couldn't sign on last week, but read the log. man, that reaper went wild
||||||||| Catherwood announces "It's 9:33 PM; let's see who falls in through our celebrity trap door!" -- he pulls a lever, and cat plummets onto the oriental shag rug.
Dexter Fong: Ken: It was a dicey situation
Ken: "don't fear the reaper" until the virtual becomes real
Merlyn LeRoy: Ok cat... but you vanished?
Dexter Fong: Cat: Land on you feet?
cat: i was lost, like adam and eve
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: do we count the elevator boy in the predictions?
Ken: dicey? give me 10 the hard way
cat: i tried to answer your msg to me, bf. dont know if i did or not
the elevator boy: I'll take 2 over easy
Dexter Fong: There you go again...it's always about size isn't it?
Merlyn LeRoy: there's some bug I haven't been able to fingure out...
Ken: with brown hash on the side
Merlyn LeRoy: yeah, I got your address cat, thanks
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: ah, has browns, I'll take two!
Dexter Fong: We cook the aggs in hash oil
the elevator boy: and a beer with egg on the bottom
Ken: but don't eat the brown acid!
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: *hash, err
the elevator boy: no - the brown acid is a suppository!
Ken: i'll pass, thank you very much. where suppositories go is one way for me, exit only
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: well, put it in your pouch then
Dave: hey elevator boy, can you take me up to the floor of insanity please?
Dexter Fong: JustA and E. Boy: have we talked before?
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: insanity is at the roof level Dave
the elevator boy: you mean up the down staircase?
Ken: A&E is one of my favorite channels
Dexter Fong: Man what a progressive school...Uppers in one staircase and downers on the other
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: yes, this is Mike C
Ken: dave: insanity is for those whose elevator does NOT go all the way to the top floor
the elevator boy: Ja. it's mrmuckle maskerading as an elevated boyd
Ken: ah, mike in alabama?
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: I usually get off between floors, myself
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: yes
Dexter Fong feeling foolish wonders who Dave C is and knows he will probably say duh when informed
Ken: is there a rule that we all should have revolving identies? if so, then i'll spend next week thinking of more for me :)
Dexter Fong: Hi Mr. Muckle honey =)
Ken: dex: mike c was a "long ago and in a galaxy far away" participant
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: well, Mike C is just so... plain, jane
the elevator boy: just watch THIS:
||||||||| Catherwood says "9:39 PM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs the elevator boy by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
Dexter Fong: You mean IRC Ken?
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "9:39 PM and late as usual, it's mrmuckle, just back from Billville."

Ken: cat, we did miss you

Dexter Fong: Jeeze sorry
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: he is a bit confused, Mike C and dave ?
Ken: honey is the digestive byproduct of bees and pollen. any more questions?
Dave: fuck it Dex, never mind
Merlyn LeRoy: dex, you were wondering who dave C was
cat: its was pleasent to read that i had another identity somewhere else, instead of just the guy at the table who doesnt speak our language
Merlyn LeRoy: you're confused, the horizon is moving up
Dave: this isn't easy with a screen reader, brb, more math, god I need to work harder
||||||||| Uncle Ernie waltzes in at 9:42 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
Dexter Fong: Merl: Yes and didn't recognize the name
Ken: hi ernie
Uncle Ernie: G'day Y'all!

Dexter Fong: No Merl: The screen is moving down
Uncle Ernie: cat!

Dexter Fong: Unca Ernie
Ken: here's a math problem for all of you. at its present rate, how long before this server clock comes "full circle' and we have the right time again?

cat: i read a sidderal newsweek the other day
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: I've been reading some of Jim Hogan's reflection on recently formed Venus on his site, interesting stuff

Elayne: So why aren't the Firesign message boards UBB?
Elayne: I can't handle message boards that aren't UBB any more. Too confusing.
Ken: UBB? want to translate?
cat: i sure got a greater impression of comic art from europe,. el
Elayne: "Ultimate Bulletin Board." It's a kind of coding, that's a brand name for it. Don't know the generic.
Elayne: Sounds like y'all had a great time perusing the museums, Cat!
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: ah, I understand now
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Captain Equinox close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 9:47 PM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the Aviary.
cat: good times and bad. lots of tedium. but great stuff like bosch in the prado last week
Elayne: In Europe they treat comics like =gasp!= another form of literature, and there's stuff for kids, adults, everyone.
Dexter Fong: This Is The Ultimate Bulletin Board: You have 37 days to live. That is all
Ken: i will pretend to understand ;)
Elayne: They don't have all the silly misconceptions they do here.
cat: i cant imagine neal gaiman without bosch
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: he still hasn't stunted that tree yet?
Elayne: Neither can he, I'll warrant. :)
cat: the spainies call him "el bosco". i kept expecting a dude with a red nose
Dexter Fong: Captame Equinox!!
Captain Equinox: The tree comes in shorts and quarts...
Ken: hi cap'n
Dexter Fong: Cat Hieronymous or Pear?
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: I'll take a pint

Captain Equinox: What litreship you display...
Dave: hey, gotta go, try to be on later, talk to ya during the week, see ya
Dexter Fong: Give that man an Imperious Galloon
JustAMinuteFlatFoot: bye dave
Ken: bye, dave
Dexter Fong: So long Dave

Merlyn LeRoy: the reaper will get him if he just disconnected
Ken: you don't get any real concept of it seeing it printed on a page
Uncle Ernie: How can you be in two places at once when you're not anywhere at all?

Captain Equinox: no, standing up
Ken: i can only pee in the toilet (or in the stream when i'm not at home)

Dexter Fong: Cat: Gold crutches

Captain Equinox: I'm just happy I still have a stream...

||||||||| doctec_eating rushes off, saying "9:58 PM? Mark Time is almost on! Where's a radio?"
Dexter Fong: I can't I'm in a comma
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 9:58 PM, dragging doctec by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this bozo?"

Ken: broken wings dipped in blue cheese are great
cat: and i consider that a good thing
doctec: cat, you're making vancouver look more & more inviting...
Captain Equinox: If they're on the increase, they won't remain in the minority, by definition.
Dexter Fong: Hey..my broken wing has a broken arrow in it
cat: of the countries i visited, however briefly, portugal seemed the most colour-blind
doctec: what with the right wing having captured the hearts and minds of america at the moment
Uncle Ernie: You know this reminds me very little of a time in the Estonian Mountains!

Dave: hey, I actually went to see the brothel in pompe, let's just say that there were pictures of different positions carved above the doors, how do I know? the tour guide said that there were, but no one would describe the positions to me, so I missed out on the fun

Ken: dwarfs?

Ken: spumante is good
Dexter Fong: I hate those killer whaters
Captain Equinox: That would be because he likes you.

Bunnyboy: yeah, the rabbit
Captain Equinox: Those inscrutable Japanese...
Bunnyboy polishes his brass knuckles
klokwkdog: how is imitating a bid for eminem's ancestral house III any different than imitating a 13-year-old virgin donkey?
Captain Equinox: Sometimes, I think they're doing it on purpose!
Bone-E-Boi: If Phil were here, he might mistake you for a groupie or something.
Ken: as long as they aren't unscrotumed

Bone-E-Boi: (I haven't seen this many errors since that outfielder for the Dodgers dropped acid during the World Series back in 1966)
cat: or the bushies are so confident they can use him to let off steam
||||||||| Bunnyboy rushes off, saying "11:07 PM? Mark Time is almost on! Where's a radio?"
Dexter Fong: Klock: "whoooh! That's longer than any one's been senator beflor
klokwkdog: no, 1954, I heard today. I thought '48
Ken: maybe '48 was when he entered the house.
Captain Equinox: It hasn't been de-thurmond.
cat: mark, marc, marconi- there's a radio for you
Dexter Fong: The Strom is in the House
klokwkdog: he was Governor or something
Bone-E-Boi: "I dropped the easy pop fly because the love aura was in my eyes."
Ken: visine cures that
klokwkdog: oh, I remember - he ran for The President in '48 on state's rights party; carried 4 states. They didn't say which, but I imagine SC, GA, AL, MS
Dexter Fong: ..."Mickey Mantle, 1952
Ken: dixiecrat
Dexter Fong: Who you calling a Dixiecup?
klokwkdog must prep food briefly
Captain Equinox: Can't you hold your water?
Ken: i can't hold mine, ggp, brb
Dexter Fong: CE: It's that lack of waxy buildup
Bone-E-Boi: HIs lawyers won't let me divulge his name. Mickey Mantle didn't play for the Dodgers. And he was a beer drinker.
Dexter Fong: Bone: You're outta my league here =)
Captain Equinox: Waxy Buildup and the Stains...

Ken: and as soon as she touches me, i grow
Bone-E-Boi: Here's a hint: With his sunglasses on, he did look a lot like Jimi Hendrix.
Dexter Fong: You must be the Old gas Lighter CE
Captain Equinox: That's me...
cat: it's a floor wax. no, it's a desert topping
Captain Equinox: You're both right...
Dexter Fong: Bone-E: still floundering here
Merlyn LeRoy: it's a desert wax for that oasis look
Bone-E-Boi: Right fielder. Number Sixty-nine. Jimi Hendrix.
Captain Equinox: Cat, how did Fumiyo like Europe?
Ken: dex: stuff it with crab meat
||||||||| Bone-E-Boi departs at 11:14 PM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
cat: now pitching for the yankees, Fidel Casfro
Dexter Fong: ;sighs it must be that extra quart of vodke I drank

Ken: dex: sorry, only have my zip code in the cookie
Ken: aoltvlistings.netscape.com
Dexter Fong: Ken: Quick! make a Xeroxz copy and swallow both
Captain Equinox: Wow, that's hard. When you're with somebody halfway 'round the world, and they're not having a good time, that would be very difficult.
Ken: microdot :)

Dexter Fong: Leaves a microfilm after you use it

klokwkdog: i know - my brother called by cell

klokwkdog: he was getting Diesel for the tractor, which has a 25KW generator stuck on its PTO right now. Best guess is Sat+
Dexter Fong: Should I have to read the log?
klokwkdog: yeah, search for "telemarketers"
Ken: or, dex, you can just throw in the fire and watch the sparklies go up the chimney
klokwkdog: (it's not hard -- they usually find YOU)
Dexter Fong: Arghhh Another uncomprhended moment...or huh?
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 11:30 PM, dragging Captain Equinox by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this bozo?"
klokwkdog: he says it drops 30 volts when the heat pump kicks on
Dexter Fong: CE: WB
Ken: resistance is futile.....
Dexter Fong: Reluctance is understandable
Ken: do not impede those electrons
Dexter Fong: ...Nay! but let them go positively to their state of rest
Ken: amen
Dexter Fong: a plan
klokwkdog: Tarik Asisz was pretty huffy, wasn't he? "Every Iraqi has a gun in the house. We give them all guns."
Dexter Fong: I thought Tarik left in a Huff
Ken: sounds like alabama to me
Ken: tarik is a chaldean christian, but mingles well with muslims
Dexter Fong: Falling Stars?
klokwkdog: that's his people, but he's no more religious than Saddam...
Ken: i put one in my pocket, but the thermonuclear fusion burned my leg
Ken: baath party motto: and a thug shall lead them
Dexter Fong: You can lead a thug to the baths but you can't make him confess
klokwkdog: but he's a really GOOD thug, Ken!
Ken: every reporter i've heard discussing interviews with saddam says he's very charismatic
Dexter Fong: Unless you read him the Rites of Ste. Miranda
klokwkdog: so was Hitler. so was Uncle Joe.
Ken: must be a job requirement for dictators
Dexter Fong: Ken: So apparently was Hitler ...though I always found him to be a little over the top

Dexter Fong: Ken: What color shirt should I 3ear
Dexter Fong: Elite Nazi

Ken: krystalnacht to you, mein herr!
klokwkdog: something to do with sports, I'll venture
Dexter Fong: I forgot. I'm training to gbe an English Actor so I can play a Nazi
Dexter Fong: Klock Rune was a Mystical sport
klokwkdog: yeah, you can get a bit in that picture Ahnold wants to make, about the "Good Nazi"
