Peter Bergman as 'PeterBergman'

||||||||| 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 12, 2002 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood announces "It's 4:44 PM; let's see who falls in through our celebrity trap door!" -- he pulls a lever, and Schoolboy plummets onto the oriental shag rug.
Schoolboy: Is anybody here Sean Kelly?
||||||||| At 4:48 PM, Schoolboy vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, December 12, 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 enters with cease imril close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 9:08 PM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the Aviary.
||||||||| Bubbas Brain waltzes in at 9:13 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
Bubbas Brain: Greetings, Cat.
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Merlyn LeRoy into the room, accepts a grimy quarter as a gratuity, mumbles something about 9:15 PM, then departs.
Bubbas Brain: Hey
Merlyn LeRoy: hello
Bubbas Brain: Been away a coupla weeks.... anything new?
Merlyn LeRoy: not much, though austin has started 'ed woodpecker' on the fireblog
Bubbas Brain: I'll have to take a look.
||||||||| Catherwood leads casinopants inside, makes a note of the time (9:17 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
casinopants: Hi all. I'm 27, and have been a FST fan since I was 10.
casinopants: This is my first time in this chat room.
Bubbas Brain: Hi....
Merlyn LeRoy: nigh unto 17 years
casinopants: I was introduced to FST by my father, who let me listen to DCTDJHMTP
Bubbas Brain: Things are just getting started, so its not too busy yet.
casinopants: And as a kid, I loved it.
casinopants: I loved the feeling of trying to picture what was going on.
casinopants: Theatre of the mind.
Bubbas Brain: The Mind is a terrrible thing to theatre..... whatever that means.
||||||||| It's 9:20 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| cease imril - dead from the fiddlers
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
casinopants: Every winter, I spend a few nights sitting in my waiting room, listening to DCTC and watching the snow fall.
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 9:20 PM, dragging Uncle Ernie by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this bozo?"
Uncle Ernie: G'Day Y'all!
casinopants: As a kid, I listened to DCTD all through that first winter.
Merlyn LeRoy: hey dere
Uncle Ernie: Uh oh, there's the 9 0'clock call to fear. That means every one on Planet X will spend the next 20 minutes eyeing each other suspiciously and chanting from the book of Phobias. I better just sit quietly here under this 'oil palm' and pretend to read my co
Merlyn LeRoy: now we have a dead cat
Bubbas Brain: Oh, great, there's only 101 uses for one of those.
Uncle Ernie: Theres a whole dead cat in every bar of dead cat soap!
casinopants: Anyway, enough of my boring childhood stories. Two flying saucers have just landed on my plate.
Bubbas Brain: ...or so the books tell me.
Bubbas Brain: They're in everyone's eggs.
casinopants: Sir, are you nuts?
casinopants: Has anyone picked up the Weirdly Cool DVD?
Uncle Ernie: Thats what they want you to think!
casinopants: My uncle and I watched it over Thanksgiving. . .and we laughed and farted all the way home.
Uncle Ernie: I taped it when it was on PBS.
casinopants: I didn't know about it when it was on PBS. . .nobody tells me these things.
casinopants: So what kind of discussions take place here?
Bubbas Brain: We keep it secret.
Uncle Ernie: We're not allowed to say ...
casinopants: Is there a secret code? Where A is J? And J is G? And 27 is Z?
Bubbas Brain: Discussions? We don' need no stinkin' discussions.....
Uncle Ernie: Let me scare you with a little story!
casinopants: Hey, I've got a FS question for you all.
casinopants: In Dont Crush That Dwarf, during the Pico and Alverado scene. . .
Merlyn LeRoy: open channel D
Bubbas Brain: What! Here?
Uncle Ernie: Don't run in the ternches ...
casinopants: When Tirebiter yells out the "Seconda Worlda War You So Smart" question. . .
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'PeterBergman/', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:26 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
||||||||| Ken waltzes in at 9:26 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
Bubbas Brain: ... and turned right at Alverado and Pico....
casinopants: What do Pico and Alverado respond with?
Ken: good evening, dear friends
||||||||| Catherwood enters with cease imril close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 9:26 PM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the Aviary.
Merlyn LeRoy: hey, peter! nice you could make it.
Uncle Ernie: Hi Ken?
Ken: hi peter, cat
Merlyn LeRoy: Though a slash followed you in
cease imril: peter bergman?
cease imril: never thought i'd see you here
Merlyn LeRoy: (to those who don't know, that's the real Peter Bergman of Firesign Theatre)
Ken: those damned slashes--you try washing them out, you try scrubbing them out.....
cease imril: and not a clone?
Bubbas Brain: Ancient Chinese Secret.....
casinopants: I kinda guessed. . .but am still trying to think of something to say. Hi Peter. Thanks for making my childhood a helluva lot more enjoyable.
Merlyn LeRoy: not a clem clone
casinopants: So no one can help me with my Don't Crush That Dwarf question?
casinopants: Uh, clem.
Ken: maybe i should go and watch channel 85 for a while? :)
Merlyn LeRoy: peter, if you can't type anything, send me email...
Uncle Ernie: Well Mr. pResident it's the bees and spider again ...
Ken: an oxymoron, brian. if he can't type, how can he send email?
cease imril: frist austin goes on line, and now bergman. can the appocylpse be far behind?
casinopants: I was always a fan of how the FS would flaggle their lips to make a distorted film sound.
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Dave close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 9:29 PM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the Aviary.
Ken: wars, rumors of wars, earthquakes, famines, fst online--it's all in the bible ;)
Bubbas Brain: If you have no fingers, bang your forehead into the keyboard....
Merlyn LeRoy: ah, true. well casinopants, I don't quite remember what pico & alvarado say in response to "who wonna world war II you so smart"
Ken: hi dave
cease imril: marmosets everywhere
casinopants: It's something like, "Not responsible. Park and Lock it."
cease imril: park and lock it. not responsible
casinopants: Is that correct? Has bothered me since I was wee.
casinopants: Thanks Cease.
Uncle Ernie: Hmmm it says here that the law of the Phobia demands tarring and beheading if you exhibit fear of the unknown. Death and taxes for lap tap dancing. And eternity as a fly for insufficient pubic hair!
cease imril: isnt' that something bergman used to yell when parking cars?
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "9:30 PM and late as usual, it's PeterBergman, just back from Billville."
Ken: speaking of clones.....
Merlyn LeRoy: I'll try killing the other Bergman...
||||||||| Merlyn LeRoy aka 'The Reaper' has killed off PeterBergman/ at 9:31 PM
Dave: ok, if I can't type very well tonight, it's cause I just got done fingerpicking a guitar, so... yeah, hi all, am I hearing right that bot Austin and Bergman are on?
||||||||| Catherwood announces "It's 9:31 PM; let's see who falls in through our celebrity trap door!" -- he pulls a lever, and mrmuckle plummets onto the oriental shag rug.
Ken: "will the real peter bergman please stand up"
Bubbas Brain: He is a clone!!!
cease imril: he is standing. he's just Really short
Ken: hi muckle
cease imril: honey
casinopants: Will the real Dr. Bergman please report to neurosurgery IMMEDIATELY.
||||||||| Uncle Ernie departs at 9:31 PM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
mrmuckle: yello, Dear Friends...
casinopants: Men.
Ken: who you callin' honey?
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'Uncle Ernie', just granted probation at 9:32 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
Bubbas Brain: Wait, dont kill him, you can use the clone's organs to extend the real one's life!
cease imril: J, man?
mrmuckle: Thanks!
cease imril: rushing towards legality here
cease imril: to the vast annoyance of your drug "czar"

Uncle Ernie: I have some Road Apple Red here ...
cease imril: road apple red for the beatles of comedy
Ken: cat: in news this week: a pro-drug group is trying to get our drug czar indicted for meddling in the pot initiatives here. it IS against the law for any federal employee to try to sway any election
Dave: as usual, I'm lost, but, no one can find me, so, we're all good
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "9:34 PM and late as usual, it's doctec_temp, just back from Billville."
mrmuckle: I wish they'd appoint a woman, so we could have a CZARINA
doctec_temp: hi gang, just here long enough to say "hi"
Bubbas Brain: Doctemp?
casinopants: He says he can shout, can't hear you.
cease imril: isnt that a kind of cereal?
Ken: dave: if you're lost, then you're in good company. "i once was lost, but now i'm found, twas blind, but now i see"
Bubbas Brain: 98.6
doctec_temp: i'm heading over to lili's for the evening
doctec_temp: i will log on from there
Ken: hi doc
cease imril: you could have surreal cereal with the czarina
Merlyn LeRoy: Peter told me in email that he had to go pick up his daughter
doctec_temp: see you all again in about 15-20 mins
Ken: doc's entry reminds me that dexter emailed me and doc, saying he and his wife were going to vegas, wouldn't be here
cease imril: aha
Merlyn LeRoy: he said he was lost...
doctec_temp: maybe peter will be back by then?

Ken: the mightly wurlitzer :)
Uncle Ernie: don't fear the reefer ...
Bubbas Brain: Don't rear the freaper?

Ken: no doobies here, sad to say. no brothers either
Dave: god my fingers hurt, I can't wait till tomorrow when I get to read braille all day, damn it! why'd I have to do that to myself, cause I wanted to learn the song, that's why, ok, yeah, I'm just rambling
Ken: dave, are you any good at guitar playing? i've tried once, mastered one chord, then gave it up
Bubbas Brain: What chord?
Uncle Ernie: I played for 30 years until carpal tunnel set in
Ken: dunno now, it's the lost chord
Dave: no, I'm actually a fiddle player, but I wanted to learn a song, so I picked an old acoustic up, and learned it by ear as usual, then I broke a string, so, I've gotta get a new set
Bubbas Brain: Gotta go insearch of it....
Dave: I have decided to teach myself how to play, just for fun
Merlyn LeRoy: you'll catch the fiddler's

Bubbas Brain: Neither was Margo for a coupla days there...
Ken: i was margot kidder in a previous life
Dave: I hate to brag, but having perfect pitch is a wonderful thing, in other words, give me a note on the piano and I can tell you what it is, I think it makes up for my blindness, and, damnit, I wouldn't trade anything for it whatsoever
cease imril: good for you. and sandy koufax
Ken: lol, cat
Ken: i've only known two people with perfect pitch, both were arrangers for a band

Dave: well ken, you now know three, well, kind of three, to you I am just a virtual entity, but, the same thing could be said about you, so THERE
Merlyn LeRoy: the latest theory from NASA is, stars are formed by heavy rotation on MTV
cease imril: good one, merly
Ken: yeah, dave, i don't exist. a metaphysical book i read once said the universe doesn't exist without an observer
cease imril: nah
Bubbas Brain: does the book exist without a reader?
Dave: true
Ken: what is the sound of one guitar picking?
Dave: I don't exist either, I'm bipolar, aren't I Dave?
Uncle Ernie: Yes it does a child may not be able to read but the book exists for them!
Merlyn LeRoy: the world is bipolar, it's got north & south

Bubbas Brain: I just do the web site.... from a distance.
Ken: i'm not loaded, that's all i know
cease imril: you gotta carry that weight, a long time
Ken: what is the sound of one nose picking?
Uncle Ernie: Don't pick it won't heal ...
Bubbas Brain: I liked Nancy Griffith's version much better than Bette Middler's
cease imril: you don't know if lodestone is selling more firesign product this year?
Ken: ah, ernie, reminds me of those lovely pics i saw on tv of smallpox vaccines. i don't want one, already had two in my life
cease imril: post weirdly cool?
Bubbas Brain: no Idea.... I'll have to hack into their database and do an analysis.......

cease imril: not if it doesnt interest you
Uncle Ernie: Well if you live at the next ground zero you'll either get one or end up in a "Happy Camp"

Dave: oh my, it's nice out
Uncle Ernie: Isn't it nice out?
cease imril: shark?

Ken: i bet dave's reader loves words like "gnome" with silent letters
cease imril: alaska?
cease imril: but will she answer?
Ken: what was the question?
||||||||| Catherwood leads doctec inside, makes a note of the time (9:58 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Ken: the doctor is in
doctec: back...
Uncle Ernie: Ha ha thats very logical ...
Ken: i see we're 18 minutes fast now. it's accelerating. the end of the world is near
Bubbas Brain: and I feel fine.
doctec: how soon is now?
Ken: now is always "now".
Ken: anything else would be too surreal
Uncle Ernie: I wish I could scan him on my video, he must be hot around the thrusters ...
cease imril: just watched consumer section of news on camcorders et al that looked like an ad for sony
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Ken: with the right female stimulation, i've been hot around the thrusters before too
Dave: ok, I just learned that if you go away for about two minutes you get lost in the vacume of spacey conversation
doctec: sidereal time?
Ken: yes, dave, sometimes it happens even when you don't leave
doctec: I remember when I was hot around the thrusters... back in my youth...

Uncle Ernie: There's an echo in here ... in here ...
cease imril: no, you're just talking to yourself
doctec: young is a relative term when you're approaching half a century
doctec: in here?
doctec: i think i'll stand over *here* like an idiot talking to myself...
Ken: quote for the day: "The illegal we do immediately. The unconstitutional takes a little longer." --Henry Kissinger
Uncle Ernie: half a century ... ah youth I just turned 54
cease imril: enthusiasms and capacities both obey the law of entropy
Ken: doc, you look good over there, but i can't hear you now
Bubbas Brain: I break the law of entropy
cease imril: growing younger, bub?
Bubbas Brain: No, just less random.
cease imril: that's age
doctec: i'll move six feet over (as opposed to under)
doctec: I remember when I was hot around the thrusters... back in my youth...
cease imril: i must see that show
Dave: haha, I'm back
Ken: i can hear you now. "can you hear me now?" "can you hear me now?"
doctec: wha-at?
doctec: wha-at?
Dave: you though you were rid of me, well, you aren't you, are you Dave?
doctec: wha-at?
Bubbas Brain: I will eventually turn into a perfect 1 by 4 by 9 monolith.

Ken: with dancing chimps around you, bubba?
doctec: this netscape sucks, i'm switching to IE
Dave: no Dave, you're not, you're not free of ME either
||||||||| At 10:06 PM, doctec vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
Bubbas Brain: Also sprach Bubba.
cease imril: why, it boggles the mind
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "10:07 PM and late as usual, it's doctec, just back from Billville."
Dave: ok, I've spent too much time in this chat alone, read the loggs if yall don't believe me
Ken: they boggle but they don't fall down
doctec: there, now maybe i won't repeat myself repeat myself repeat myself...
Ken: dave, you're never alone when you're with someone else
cease imril: number nein

doctec: You're never alone with your clone.
Ken: that's ok, i'm a stupid guy most of the time
cease imril: uh, clem?
Bubbas Brain: I think we're a clone now....
Dave: hey, join the club, but don't hit anyone with it, or WE'LL ALL BE STUPID, NOOOOOOOOO!

Merlyn LeRoy: gotcha doc, though his budget isn't too big
Uncle Ernie: Welcome ? and sign in please!
Ken: my mammary hasn't failed me yet :)
cease imril: mammy!
||||||||| Catherwood enters with johm imaloo close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 10:16 PM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the Aviary.
johm imaloo: hello
doctec: hello "?" - or should I say "The Artist Formerly Known As ?"
Uncle Ernie: Hi Johm?
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "10:17 PM and late as usual, it's Stretch, just back from Billville."
Ken: speaking of tv guide, pbs "frontline" now on in the east. Investigation into children's growing use of psychoactive drugs.
Ken: ? and the mysterians

klokwkdog: it's about time they got those psychoactives - will keep them away from LDS and pot and all that dangerous stuff
Merlyn LeRoy: imaloo, is the "?" you, you mean?

john imaloo: hello
Dave: hey Stretch, welcome to our little insane haven, said the raven who was ravenous, try to follow us as we fly fast\
john imaloo: i beleive imposters preceed me
doctec: there's one of everybody except John!
Merlyn LeRoy: there's too many imaloo
klokwkdog: ah, the movie is Drop Dead Gorgeous (1999). I guess it's a remake of the 1932 version
Ken: lds? i had some of them knock on my door earlier tonight. told them i was a pagan and sent them on their way
Dave: I think 'e did a little too much LDS, that's from Star Trek 4
klokwkdog: you shouldn't say that Ken - many of them don't eat meat either
cease imril: good one, dave
||||||||| Merlyn LeRoy aka 'The Reaper' has killed off johm imaloo at 10:21 PM
Ken: the morons, er, mormons, don't eat meat?
klokwkdog: many do, some don't
Dave: yeah, we Americans should make a movie called, "living ugly" or something, it's about fat people, no offense to those of you who are, but, hey, it'd be funny
doctec: Drop Dead Gorgeous is a remake?
Uncle Ernie: Ask them about their majic underwear!
klokwkdog: but those on a Mission are usually on a Budget, too
Ken: i know they wear a "temple shirt" or something like that
Stretch: how is fat funny?
Dave: and we don't have to pretend here that we are fat, we can all be beans, or, pencils, or, "Just plain folks"
cease imril: john was here?
john imaloo: Jack Dempsey was mormon
klokwkdog: yes, DT, but I think the 1932 version was less violent; it was about ice skaters and one whose mother hired thugs to hit one of the competitors with iron bars or something. It's been awhile.
john imaloo: yet he ate meat and drank coffee and other substasnces
Ken: i'm not fat, but i used to be. i'm about 60 pounds under my max weight now
john imaloo: that a jack mormon
doctec: One of King Vidor's flicks I imagine...
cease imril: imaloo, the weirdly cool dude?
doctec: Or was it Lubitsch?
john imaloo: I have extra weight if you need some ken
klokwkdog: no, DT, I'm pretty sure it was made in Hollywood
Ken: if you really investigate the theology of the mormon church, they are weird. we are reincarnated to be gods on our own planets if we live good lives
john imaloo: and seven heavens
Dave: ah, yes, good old King Vider, no fucking clue who that is, but, ah, he was a great guy I think
john imaloo: and 5the indians are bad
klokwkdog: although there may have been some foreign version, too; it's one of those universal stories that goes all the way back to Salem
cease imril: no matter they do so well in japan
Dave: hey Stretch, would you mind sproying in the springtime
doctec: John Lilly: "What one believes to be true is true or becomes true ...

klokwkdog: speaking of which, anybody know the origin of "dreadnaught"?

Ken: klok: as in warship or guitar?
klokwkdog: (took me awhile to track down "full tilt")
klokwkdog: warship, ken
cease imril: it is so powerful it dreads or fears naught, or nothing
Ken: did you check dictionary.com? they often have etymology

Bunnyboy: "Hello, Cleveland! Hello, Cleveland!!!"
cease imril: on the clock there-in
Dave: the freeway of your choice which'll lead you to Ralph Spoilsport motors
klokwkdog: this is because your clocks have rivalries with each other
cease imril: humidity, battery strength
Merlyn LeRoy: you should get in an argument so somebody will clean your clocks
klokwkdog: it is very important to first achieve home clock harmony, so they respect and appreciate each other. if you allow them to bicker, there will never be order

Ken: kissinger and poindexter: the dynamic duo

Dave: what about siscle?
Dave: oh.... wait
Freq Man: Kissenger doesn't strike me as someone who plays anywhere....
nurse judy: O'Henry's Fool House
Ken: i can't believe ari fleischer said poindexter was a great american. next to weasel in the dictionary, they will put his picture
klokwkdog: ken - what you think of that article about Poindexter and his neighbors
nurse judy: admirabel
Ken: klok: loved it. don't plan to go there any time soon.
Freq Man: admirabel on the bridege
klokwkdog: Ah, they got worse - Armitage, Elliot Abrams, the disgraced ambassador guy from '80s El Salvador: it's one big nose thumb by the far right.
Ken: i hope i never get well known enough that people put maps to my house on the net
nurse judy: poon doggling
Ken: negroponte
klokwkdog: yeah
Freq Man: ken... what's your address...?
cease imril: it's as if reagan's deranged brain was in charge
Freq Man: it might be.
Freq Man: shhhhhhhhh
Ken: 123 main street, anytown, usa
cease imril: alzheimer's president's dream of a country
Merlyn LeRoy: his brain is not the boss
nurse judy: it's his nut, that's what's testi
Ken: my real name is mr. and mrs. smith
Freq Man: a country on a street with no name....
cease imril: a horse?
klokwkdog somewhere has the Cultural Jet Lag cartoon, "They Saved Nixon's Brain".
cease imril: of course
cease imril: and no one can talk
Ken: except mr. ed ;)
klokwkdog: and the horse he rode in on
nurse judy: mind sweeping leaves out of the pool
Freq Man: Hello...
cease imril: the gene pool?
Ken: gene pitney's pool
klokwkdog: I don't know why you say "goodbye", I say hello...
Freq Man: nice to meet you...
cease imril: hell rarely an o, in euro-art. usually a cliff
klokwkdog: Hello, I love you won't you tell me your name
nurse judy: bosch you say?
cease imril: not enough pits to fall into in their lands
Ken: freq, you're supposed to wink when you say that
klokwkdog: all we hear is Radio Dada
Ken: orlando bosch, another republican plot
Freq Man: Don't let the pits fall in to the wrong hands... the fate of the free world hangs in the balance!!!
cease imril: bosh was more o than most, don't you think? i've just come back from staring at bosch and other euro art for the past few monthes
nurse judy: just political pendulems or pudantics
klokwkdog: that's right! The US has now identified three football stadiums in Iraq that are actually nuclear weapons sites
cease imril: intercutting it in my brain with roller maidens from outer space and other firesign riffs
Freq Man: pitch forks and pointed ears...
Ken: klok, let's send the jets to play there for pre-season next year
Freq Man: nuke sniffing dogs from turkey...
cease imril: benito and the jets
nurse judy: Prado products
klokwkdog: bosch must have known some really unhappy people, from his paintings
klokwkdog: perhaps that is why he invented the spark plug
cease imril: prado very good. wouldnt let me bring in my mini dv camera, alas
Ken: freq: you mean new-q-lar or nuclear?
cease imril: only still cameras for now
Ken: still cameras were outlawed during prohibition
cease imril: i think bosch lived among a lot of very unhappy people
Freq Man: you heard me... we got us a stramgety to get us some speciality trained newklar sniffing dawgs...
klokwkdog: i went looking for information on the inventor of zener diodes last night, and got diverted into a long history of Zerk grease fittings -- it really is a story that deserves a Bosch painting
nurse judy: typtich triumphs
klokwkdog: spreak engrish
Ken: triuph tr-7?
Freq Man: vrooom
klokwkdog: nice car, horrible electrics, wet sump
cease imril: saw a bosch in the doge's palace, an art museum next to our hotel in lisbon, but the bulk of them at the prado.
nurse judy: forgot the R, me maties
Ken: or triumph motorcycles? which leads us inevitably back to ... INDIANS!
Freq Man: How do I talk to myself privately on this site...
klokwkdog: just ask the voices, Freq
cease imril: and if i do say so myself, without bosch's brain on canvas, i don't think there would be a firesign theatre as we know it
Ken: freq: just put your hand over your mouth and don't use as much air when you exhale through the vocal cords
klokwkdog: what???!
nurse judy: on jeromes handbars, not Dali's
Freq Man: How do I make my voice do that...
cease imril: ken burns' sides?
klokwkdog: bosh is dark and metaphysical; firesign is, well, more immediate and less spiritual. I want to wash my hands after looking at Bosch stuff
nurse judy: I'll take bosch's side orders
Ken: i want to wash my hands after looking at linda lovelace too
Freq Man: Ah... Ken Burns... I'm going to sit back in my chair and reflect for a moment... ahhhhhh. (look close enough and you might see yourself)
cease imril: no, my point is the development of that kind of surrealism as public accepted. fuck, it was philip 2's fave pic.
klokwkdog: Well, Burns makes him out to be an awful, Bosch-level person, but Burnside came back to RI and was rather popular
nurse judy: wash brain too?
cease imril: not that bosch led to how bergman et al thought, in the linguistic black box sense
Ken: just saw "empire of the air" by burns this week. at end, in morse code, "baseball is next"
Ken: judy: what brain? if i had one, do you think i'd be here?
cease imril: that publicly acceptable art would not have progressed the way it has if bosch had not been the elvis of his era
nurse judy: no ticky on washee
cease imril: no dc, no ac
Freq Man: Who's the elvis of this era... or are we still in the Elvis era...
klokwkdog: but bosch was back in the orbit of, say Machiavelli, a whole different consciousness laden with Church crap. You didn't get that kind of consciousness until maybe DeSade, did you? I mean it just wasn't a practical mindset to carry around; you ended up disappearing one way or another - like we warehouse "insane" people who hear voices, etc.
||||||||| It's 11:50 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Dave - dead from the fiddlers
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Ken: i saw cartoon with santa on phone surrounded by elvis impersonators. he's yelling "I SAID ELVES!":
cease imril: fiddlers, You Bastards
Freq Man: cease... HA!
cease imril: ? exit?
klokwkdog: and even later, with Kafka; he was really talking about religion and mindset, not politics
Ken: i think some of those fiddlers should be replaced with harpists
Freq Man: Elves... heheheheh
nurse judy: dislexicon
Freq Man: harpies???
klokwkdog likes Alison Krauss, nonetheless
Ken: ah yes, i like her too. i won't go into what i'd do with her in a dark room though.......
klokwkdog longs for a Mike Cross/Alison Krauss showdown someday
cease imril: decamron
nurse judy: bosch her down
Freq Man: So if someone signs with gloves on..... is it muted?
klokwkdog was with her in a dark room, but there were 2200 other people present...
Ken: orgy time!
klokwkdog: and then, there was the Band...
cease imril: the spanish guide to the garden of earthly delights kept going on and on about its sexual power on philip 2, perhaps us too
Merlyn LeRoy: back after a while...
klokwkdog: didn't he marry his sister or something?
nurse judy: dark woods garden of earthly delights beer
Ken: the garden of earthly delights is located just north of the knees and just south of the waist
klokwkdog: oh, that was Isabella, not Philip
cease imril: he tried to conquer english. if hed succeeded, we'd all be speaking spanish
nurse judy: phillips up the cusp
klokwkdog: did you visit the Alahmbra?
Ken: que tal?
cease imril: yes.
Freq Man: If you lived here...
cease imril: rained like shit, but still enchanting
Freq Man: really great shit...
cease imril: Fumiyo plays a song called Alhambra and dearly wanted to vist the real place
nurse judy: you mean Al's pork emporium?
klokwkdog: If they didn't stop the Moors, we'd all be speaking Arabic
cease imril: a dream come true for her, even with the downpour
Ken: ham bra = pork breast protector
Ken: i thought charles martel stopped the moors
cease imril: such a delight to see an iconography based on mathematics instead of impaled jesus
klokwkdog: as it was, we were lucky to escape with Roman Numerals intact, but we could not avoid Algebra
klokwkdog: nor alcohol
cease imril: will review the whole trip on website coming this way Soon.
nurse judy: he put the hammer down por latrine
Freq Man: Hmmm... geometry or savage Roman brutality...
Ken: one plus one is two. for those of you on drugs, o n e p l u s o n e i s t w o
Freq Man: How about both!
cease imril: ewe too?
Ken: savage romans making ellipses and parabolas with their bodies :)
Freq Man: he said sheepishly
cease imril: entrails, read all about it
klokwkdog: well, I kind of get off on those impaled Jesus things - I think there is a much more immediate emotional result that has a raw primitivism that is just simply missng in a bunch of ornate tiles in geometric patterns. of course, they got much better when they started burning witches, IMO...
Ken: i'll take mine medium rare, please
cease imril: you been to europe, klok?
Ken: the witches, not the entrails
klokwkdog: can't afford it
Freq Man: Rosey pink center...
cease imril: that means no?
klokwkdog: no
Ken: my internet friend in amsterdam keeps telling me to move in with him, but i don't spreak dutch
Freq Man: Does England count as Europe?
Ken: freq, it depends on who you ask
klokwkdog: it's easy, Ken, it's like German but without umlauts
Freq Man: Ken... Make sure you know what he likes to eat...
cease imril: ok, if ever you can, there's stuff i saw which i'd reccomend you see. that;'s all the website would say, or anyone else's opinoin
cease imril: i relied far too much on guide books and rick steves shows to find what i liked
cease imril: Fumiyo far less
Ken: the dutch would take offense at your comparison to the germans. they still have a hardon for hitler
klokwkdog: i would want to go there for an employer, then take time and look around
klokwkdog: that's where the umlauts went, Ken
cease imril: alhambra and all we saw of moorish spain was most inspiring
||||||||| Catherwood walks in wearing his pyjamas, yawns, and mumbles "It's midnight here in New York city"...then he falls over and starts snoring loudly..
Ken: cat, did you get to any of the basque country? bilbao, for instance?
cease imril: not north of madrid
klokwkdog: Spain is beautiful, the parts I've seen in Clint Eastwood westerns and Dr. Zhivago
Freq Man: Ok folks... dear friends and bozos... I must get back to some sound design... Thanks for a swell time!
nurse judy: spanish castle magic
Freq Man: As always...
cease imril: but drank and ate basque goodies in barcelona. will go there on nextg trip
Ken: nite, rich
klokwkdog: yes, I'd like to see that old Bilbao moon, like a big balloon over the Guggenheim
cease imril: most of spain is covered in olive trees, or the large part of it we saw
klokwkdog: nite Freq
cease imril: diont crush that olive, hand me the cervantes
Freq Man: nighty night...
nurse judy: oily to bed
Ken: they filmed part of "lord of the rings" there, you know. remember bilbao baggins?
cease imril: by frez
klokwkdog: not the part in the movies, Cat ;-)
klokwkdog: yes, they did a good job of deconstructing Tolkein there, Ken
nurse judy: those dirty rings
cease imril: flick opens tomorrow. must see it soon
cease imril: can rings get dirty?
Ken: i'll wait until a friend gets the dvd
nurse judy: only when collard green
klokwkdog: IMDB news say Brit reviews think it is better film, but only if you've seen the first. There is NO setup - #2 part starts immediately.
Ken: yes, cat, and if you try to clean them in aqua regia, they dissolve
cease imril: i thought sauron's thought would repel all dirt. or is it attract?
klokwkdog: There is a 4-DVD set out (actually, there is a five-DVD version of LOTR available for $$$), so by 2004, the full trilogy on DVD is gonna need wheels
cease imril: klok, as opposed to not going to europe and dieing and spending the sums or some thing else, i;d pick going to europe
Ken: take longer to watch the entire set than read the books
nurse judy: a 4 part trilogy, what would bosch think?
cease imril: ken, i gather you have not read the books?
Ken: lol, judy! no math there
Ken: cat, i read them in high school (late 60's). i should do it again
cease imril: i think bosch wuold be challenged, judy
cease imril: i think he always felt challenged
klokwkdog: the "making-of" commentary on the DVD version (only 2) I rented said the "hiding under the tree root" scene showed all the bugs and spiders running away from the Dark Rider. I didn't catch that in the film.
Ken: i'm a speed reader (the evelyn woodhead school)
cease imril: ken, i've read them at least 20 times. i would not be now here talking to you if i had not
nurse judy: I'm not in the hobbit of reading
klokwkdog: i just don't have the sums, period, Cat. I could, like, use another car. Europe is kind of off the scale.
Ken: i think the book i've read over and over again the most has to be "to kill a mockingbird"
Ken: followed closely by "animal farm"
klokwkdog: and I don't do well on hasty travel, so I'd really rather stick it to an employer to send me there and take side trips: money, food and sights
Ken: klok: i visited 10 islands in the caribbean AND mexico in 3 wks once. i'll never do that again
klokwkdog: hey Ken, did you read that Orwell's family is suing some guy for a parody of Animal Farm. The capitalist pig screws everything up...
cease imril: good idea, klok
klokwkdog: now all you have to do is join the Taliban, Ken...
Ken: yeah, saw that in the times. as if parody were sacred or something
cease imril: just dont wait til your dead for your employer to give you that trip
Ken: sorry, i like pork too much to do that
||||||||| It's 12:10 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Freq Man - dead from measles
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
nurse judy: and bosch on toast
klokwkdog: since local stuff does not seem to be panning out, Cat, I was looking into whether there are software/engineering openings with contractors to the Venezuelan National Oil Company
cease imril: if you like pork, you'll love japan, ken
cease imril: the toast of the burger
Ken: and i'm not circumcised either. i'm not letting anyone cut part of me off for god
Ken: cat: i hear it costs a fortune to live there
cease imril: whre?
nurse judy: don't wear your helmet
Ken: japan
cease imril: no place in europe we went was as expensive as vancouver
klokwkdog: I also looked into Karg Island in Iran and plan to investigate Basra. I was thinking of going over there to try and help foment a Shi'ite rebellion to create the first Arab Shi'ite state and frustrate GW. I can make policy better than those bozos...
cease imril: yeah, well in japan we earned yen and lived with Fumiyo's family.
Ken: klok, be careful. adm. john *could* be watching you right now
cease imril: no way we could call that expensive
klokwkdog: that's a big problem: airfare is cheap, but lodging and often food is not, so it helps to have a friend in Amsterdam, etc.
nurse judy: no bosch in japan though
cease imril: dam those amsters
klokwkdog: watch all he wants: the people I want to reach are in Iran, not DC
Ken: i have internet friends in england, holland, and hungary. if i ever go there, i'll let you guess where i will stay
cease imril: ken, you should seriously consider going there to live for a while, if you can get work and such.
cease imril: it will do you a fuck of a lot of good
klokwkdog: Gertrude Bell died 78 years ago; it's time to tear up that piece of tracing paper and start over. A free Kurdistan! The first Arab Shi'ite State!
cease imril: japan is bosch on another level
nurse judy: big fish eat little fish
klokwkdog: I thought it was Hokusai and lots of floating stuff
Ken: when my parents are gone (not that i'm rushing it) i will travel. if i don't spend it, my nieces and nephews will
cease imril: a lot of japanese comics from the 17th century and such look like they've seen bosch, but no, they evolved a parallel weirdness
klokwkdog: no, in Japan, people eat little fish. lots of big people eating even more little fish...
cease imril: lol
nurse judy: out demons out
cease imril: in profit, in
klokwkdog: I always feel for those poor guys in the boat going past Mt. Fuji
cease imril: feb 3rd, setsubun, we all say that
cease imril: throw beans outside the window to cast out demons,
cease imril: invite in good luck
klokwkdog: but the actual thing is this tiny page; it's so small! There is a copy in Rhode Island School of Design
cease imril: some times it comes in, sometime not
nurse judy: put the Ka bosch them, no that's egyptshine
Ken: magic beams?
cease imril: tiny;s page stil up?
cease imril: come on bill, you're good with languages
klokwkdog: good luck is where you find it. I finally used up 100 gal. of gas and got a free Powerball ticket. Not one single digit won anything
nurse judy: in leiu of lew
Ken: cat: it's not, but someone on the ng had the "wayback" web site listed, it's there. i downloaded the cfd from there to my hard drive
cease imril: you knew lew?
klokwkdog: not to mention that I had to spend hr. on the Powerball site trying to figure out how it worked. Whatta PITA
cease imril: from the old crew?
nurse judy: lewsly
klokwkdog: Hi Tiny, wherever you are!!
cease imril: cool!
cease imril: yeah, its as if he's here
Ken: http://web.archive.org/collections/web.html
Ken: after you get there, type in www.tinydrtim.com
klokwkdog: that any of us is here is partly due to his constant organizational efforts
klokwkdog: what he didn't actually do, he inspired
nurse judy: lews lips sank ships
Ken: lol, judy
klokwkdog: I figured I'd get to meet him in person someday.
Ken: me too. sorry i didnt

Merlyn LeRoy: the DVD is full right now, it's only a single layer DVD...
