A Firesign Chat


Special appearance by
Peter Bergman

||||||||| 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 June 12, 2003 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, June 12, 2003 - 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?"
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 9:03 PM and Dexter Fong steps out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "9:03 PM and late as usual, it's llanwydd, just back from Billville."

Dexter Fong: ...and may it never run out of your petro-carbons

Dexter Fong: Snort! Merlyn
llanwydd: petro-carbons?
Dexter Fong: Phillips 66
llanwydd: evenin Merl
Merlyn: You can snort cocaine, but not merlyn

||||||||| 9:09 PM: C. Simril jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past hour!"
Dexter Fong: ...or Hudson and landry

klokwkdoggerlski: perhaps she could obtain a rewarding position in canada. at that diamond mine. as a counterweight for the equipment there...
C. Simril: cuz he wants to sue other ephedrine victims
C. Simril: now,tell me something worse than that happend to you this week
Bunnyboy: Where there's dirt, there's weasels.
Bunnyboy: I can't top that, cat.
C. Simril: who can, bun? who would want to/
klokwkdoggerlski: is there any legal recourse against this bozo? as in confiscating all he obtains in his suit?
LiliLamont: J. H. C., Cat. There is no way anyone could beat that. I've had some health issures, but I still have my daughter, who is dying to come down to the states and take care of me.
C. Simril: i was in frisco last week on the 5th anniversary of her murder
C. Simril: hi lili, i'
C. Simril: hi lili, i'
Merlyn: cat, it should be easy to get around, at least enough so a lawyer can't touch it. Sell me (or doc, or whoever) the domain name, and it'll be mine, and I'm not in canada, even.
Bunnyboy: Maybe you can help the killer land a spot on Dr. Phil.
C. Simril: i'm deeply into lawyer weridness mode. i trust doc told you about this infinitre evil
Bambi: I can't say that I can top that cat ... that is very sad ... such a bunch of money grubbing idiots
LiliLamont: Hi, Cat. Doc told me that you had been talking about a return trip. I'd love to see you two again.
C. Simril: yeah, the fuckin artilcel they want me to delete are on abc news (disney has better5 laweyers than god) and murdockxhs new york paper
Bunnyboy: Any word on "stateside justice", cat?
C. Simril: as if she/her lawryer from hell could interfere with those webstites
Bambi: yeah, really!
C. Simril: there is no justice, bunny
Bambi: where do they get the gaul to even come after your memorial site anyway?
||||||||| Gusts of wind blow in from outside and the thumpa-thumpa-thumpa of helicopter blades is heard as Happy Panditt's chopper lands on the lawn and doctec disembarks at 11:50 PM.
doctec: ah, so lili decided to drop by eh?
C. Simril: evil is not finite, bambi
klokwkdoggerlski: gee, something good about Disney and Murdoch!
Bambi: wb doc
Bunnyboy: lo again, doc.
C. Simril: i get to watch my daughter and her frined cremated alive all the fuckin time
LiliLamont: Doc! Yes, I did. I was sorry to see you gone, but Cat was recounting the tragedy about Bit.
C. Simril: whenever there is an ephedrine story on the news, we get to see the footage athe border one again. the killler slamming into bit and kim's car at 100 mph and then claiming she was crazy at the time
klokwkdoggerlski: but more to the point, if this bozo does get money from ephedra suits, it shouldn't go to her (or any to him, either)
C. Simril: hey doc, are we gonna get this bitsite in gear or not?
doctec: ...& i see he told you about the letter he got from a lawyer regarding the web site
C. Simril: fuck, the cunt may drive up from seatlle and slam into fumiyo and me as we drive slowly down our main street tomrrow
LiliLamont: Christ! They keep using that footage? That is uncategorically cruel and inhumane.
doctec: yes, cat, in time - i am still trying to catch up from the rigors of red shift work, two casees of bronchial flu, having to buy a new car, and everything else i put on hold from january to march
C. Simril: you would think, lili. that is, if you had hno experierine of media ever
Merlyn: doc, couldn't you or I take over the domain name, or better yet, host it offshore?
C. Simril: yes, i've seen the nanosecound of my daughter's death maybe 50 times on tv
C. Simril: including the day it occured
LiliLamont: I've been lucky in that regard, Cat.
C. Simril: your daugher still lives, lili. i hope for many, many m,ore years
doctec: merl: the site is on ifip right now - yes, if cat wanted to 'sell' it to us he could
doctec: (more like a lease)
Bambi: good idea merlin
doctec: but i don't think it will come to that
doctec: free speech an' all
klokwkdoggerlski: Cat - you should make clear to them that if they show the footage, they ought to mention how disturbing it is for the survivors and how the instigators and the lawyer stand to profit from your daughter's death
LiliLamont: So do I, Cat. She is the joy of my life. And she's given me a granddaughter, which is a kind of immortality.
C. Simril: i want that site up there as long as that can be done. i doubt any lawyer or court can prevent it, though who knows that gw bush can do . mayber the killer can threaten to run over his daughters if he doesnt yank the site
LiliLamont: I'd be happy if someone ran over W. But that's just me.
C. Simril: their advertrisers make far too mcuh money showng bit endlessly dieing
C. Simril: their advertrisers make far too mcuh money showng bit endlessly dieing
Bunnyboy: Lili: (Makes note in log). ; )
Bunnyboy: "Why, that's a threat, plain and simple!"
C. Simril: your country is owned by the makers of ephedrine, et al. so is mine
Bunnyboy: And the makers of automobiles, for that matter.
doctec: u.s. plus?
doctec: "we own the idea of society"
C. Simril: my father was a ford dealer for many years. i did ads for him, more than 40 years ago
Bunnyboy: "We own the idea...of unaccountability"/
C. Simril: no, that owns itself
Bambi: maybe you should sue them for pain and suffering for showing it on TV?
klokwkdoggerlski: ...and by makers of weapons of mass destruction
LiliLamont: I know, BB. Big Brother is watching. But I doubt Ashcroaft is hip or humorous enough to monitor this. Of course, one never knows. But what the fuck? I hate W. There, I've said it.
Bambi: that would be justice
C. Simril: i am so tired of lawyers, bambi
doctec: sounds incestuous
Bunnyboy: I did a local (Eastern Washington) 409 spot, almost 40 years ago.
doctec: (in re: that owns itself)
C. Simril: henry the 4tth, take 2
Bunnyboy: BTW, R.I.P. David Brinkley and Gregory Peck.
Bambi: who wouldn't be cat under the circumstances ... just that there is no way to get them except in the pocket book .. that's all they feel.
LiliLamont: Thanks, doc. I had to back up on that one.
C. Simril: they were both great
C. Simril: i havce fond memories of watching 2 kill a mockingbirrd with bit
doctec: mark v. and i contributed music bed to local restuarant ad that ran for like three or four years
Bambi: yes they were ... R.I.P for sure
LiliLamont: I was sorry it wasn't Charlton Heston, so they could have pryed his gun from his cold dead hands.
doctec: lili: lol
C. Simril: e had both read the novel, and marvelled at pecks transformatoin of a.fihcn\
doctec: nice image there
LiliLamont: I knew you'd like that.
C. Simril: bambi, there was a civil suit. it was settle last summer
C. Simril: that's why this is so odd
Bunnyboy: Lili: have you seen BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE? The Chuckster looks more than a little frumpy and addled.
LiliLamont: Fucking conservative asshole.
klokwkdoggerlski: i still don't see why you can't co-opt every penny either of them hope to get from this travesty, Cat
C. Simril: loved it, bun
||||||||| 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..
Bunnyboy: "There is no phone RINGING!"
LiliLamont: No, but Doc and I will have to rent it.
Merlyn: anywho, doc,cat, I figured changing ownership would shut them up quickly; there are even anonymous domain hosting services
Bunnyboy: "Oh, my GOD!"
Bambi: cat, about the viewing on TV?
C. Simril: cuz it would involve me in endless litigation, klok
Bunnyboy: August 19th, for the video
C. Simril: the fuckin civil suit took 5 years already
klokwkdoggerlski: oh
Bambi: I hate lawyers
C. Simril: about the fact that her death is paraded on tv to sell you insurance, what exactfly can i do about that?
LiliLamont: Lawyers are slowly becoming the ruling class. The horror, the horror......
C. Simril: merl, good idea. lets discuss this
Bambi: they can't make you take down your site ... or you can tell'em you'll take down the site when they stop showing that on TV
Bambi: those idiots!
Bunnyboy: It was quite funny: the day after BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE won the Oscar, Amazon listed a ship date as January 2010.
Bunnyboy: I think somebody was having fun.
doctec: yeah, i don't really think it is necessary to take any evasive action re the bit site at this point
Merlyn: http://www.hostinganonymously.com has a way where THEY don't even know who you are.
LiliLamont: 2010?! What the fuck is up with that?! Is this the Bush administration making policy?
klokwkdoggerlski: it might be helpful to have the site hosted in .ca if that means that any litigation would have to occur there then
Bunnyboy: cat: Here's the plan...
doctec: we're in tight with the ifip administrator, if someone were to try and take drastic legal action re the site i'm sure he will help us get it set up somewhere else
Bunnyboy: Sue me? = FUCK *YOU*!!!
LiliLamont: Or, what is .cc? mnftiu is on that.
C. Simril: ok doc, but can we update it, as per my email?
doctec: yes, i just need some time is all cat
C. Simril: yeah, bunnyh. they sue me, they also have to sue disney and murdock. good fucking luck
doctec: my plate is so freakin' full at the moment
doctec: i will do what i can when i can get the time
LiliLamont: Doc's been swamped, as usual.
Bunnyboy: I'm Powdered Toast Man. Catch y'all soon!
LiliLamont: Bon soir, BB.
Bambi: night bunny
Merlyn: nite bb
klokwkdoggerlski: bye BB
C. Simril: as always, docby bun. hope you can avoid being run over my julia campagna
doctec: nite bun
ah,clem: bye BB
Bunnyboy: Lili: Ah, Canadian! You drive me mad!
doctec: (new rwn & stimpy due june 26)
C. Simril: there is no madnes in canada
C. Simril: murder is perfectly legal here.
LiliLamont: BB: I'm not Canadian, but my granddaughter is. But thanks for the compliment.
C. Simril: have any of you read This is Moscow Calling by yuri daniel? got him snet to siberia
LiliLamont: And I refuse to refer to Freedom Toast. What horseshit.
Bunnyboy: doc: Yes, indeed! Check out MAN'S BEST FRIEND, the only original, unaired R & S episode, due on TNN...erhm, Spike TV.
C. Simril: the plot is, murder is declaredlegal for one day
doctec: sent to siberia recently, or back in the bresznev days?
Bunnyboy: Anybody hear about Spike Lee suing Viacom?
C. Simril: 64
doctec: bb: yeah i'm looking fwd to that!
C. Simril: big show trial
LiliLamont: No shit? Over what?
doctec: bb: yeah - more stupid lawsuits
LiliLamont: The things I misss.
C. Simril: my father in law was one of the few who survived siberia in 40s
Bambi: don't feel bad lili ... missed that one too!
klokwkdoggerlski: nice of those weasels to evacuate the Americans in Sierra Leone last weekend, wasn't it...considering we didn't have a prayer of getting there in time ourselves, what with every pissant in uniform that can recite their name already on duty in Iraq and just renewed, Catch-22 style for another tour just now...
C. Simril: so fumiyo and i figure, if he could survive that, we can survive anything. and we owe it to him
doctec: dolby labs took tom dolby to court years ago, tried to say dolby was a copyrighted name & he couldn't use it as his stage name (even though his real full name is thomas morgan dolby robertson) ... dolby labs lost that one
Bunnyboy: TNN is being renamed SPIKE TV...and the Leester thinks his TM-tm name is being affronterated!
LiliLamont: It really is amazing when faced with adversity what you may find yorself capable of.
Bunnyboy: All I gotta say is...talk to one or two cartoon bulldogs, you horse's ass!
C. Simril: i loved his first flick but then he degenerated into an infinite seried of nike ads
Merlyn: will spike lee sue spike jonez?
C. Simril: you should know, lili
doctec: not to mention spike milligan
C. Simril: you're almost as old as me
C. Simril: you're almost as old as me
Merlyn: or spike the dog in the old tom & jerry cartoons? And will the bartenders assoc sue tom & jerry?
LiliLamont: Ooh, so close. I just turned 52. How old are you now, Cat?
Bunnyboy: cat: Do you have Virtual Tourette's?
C. Simril: what would you know of bartenders, merl?
C. Simril: 4/12/51
C. Simril: the name of one of my neal stories
Merlyn: a termite walks into a bar and asks "is the bartender here?"
klokwkdoggerlski: hah, and I got 3 years+ on Lili, too ;-)
LiliLamont: It's only a month's difference, Cat. I'm 5/15/51.
C. Simril: same astrological sign, for the poor demented who believe in such things\and late
C. Simril: and late departed dex isz a decade older than us all\
Bambi: born in Feb. 1955 here
klokwkdoggerlski: gad, they're letting too many kids into this chat...
LiliLamont: Time is running out for us all. Grab life while you can.
C. Simril: we are all old, no matter when we were born
C. Simril: that is in some ways the message of the firesign theatre.
Bunnyboy: cat: No shit! I never would've pegged Dex for a near-retiree. But, what of that...
C. Simril: in that we can age independetly of time
LiliLamont: KWD: Hey, Doc is 9/3/54. I like to get them while they're tender.
klokwkdoggerlski: they don't have Life on the supermarket rack anymore...
ah,clem: .006535948, Cat?
Bunnyboy: I'm the kid in the room. I just turned 42, 2 days ago.
doctec: a preying mantis walks into a bar. bartender says what'll ya have? mantis says "gimme a rum & coke". bartender pours drink, says "that'll be $12". mantis pays. bartender remarks "y'know, we don't see many preying mantises in here very often". mantis says "yeah, and at those prices you won't see many more."
C. Simril: merl is younger yet
LiliLamont: You're just adorable, BB!
klokwkdoggerlski: watch Vertical Ray of the Sun, Lili, and tell him that ;-))
LiliLamont: I will,K.
Bunnyboy: Mantis = Kangaroo = Penguin
doctec: lili: vertical ray of the sun is at hollywood video
LiliLamont: Let's rent it. It's supposed to rain this weekend, right? What a fucking surprise.
Merlyn: no, I'm 46
Bunnyboy: I'se a sleepy one. Nite!
doctec: nite bb
Merlyn: nite bb
C. Simril: by
LiliLamont: Night, BB. Bon soir, bon nuit.
C. Simril: good to see you more than once
Bambi: night bunny
doctec: lili: no, it will be sunny & mild all weekend & into tuesday
doctec: rain & thunderstorms start tonight, will pass by friday night
||||||||| Bunnyboy says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, Bunnyboy exits at 12:18 AM.
LiliLamont: Get out of town, Doc! You mean I can mow the lawn? Shit!
C. Simril: off you bun
C. Simril: hey li, we got lawn in new place
Bambi: LOL ... never thought at my age I'd be considered a kid :)
doctec: yes you can mow your lawn (sunday would be better) and no i won't get outta town. sorry.
C. Simril: you and doc gonna come viist?
C. Simril: evertyihg is relative, bamb
LiliLamont: I hope so, Cat. Hey, Bambi, I still get called "miss".
Bambi: yeah ... by the way ... clem is 5/56
doctec: cat: that will depend on (a) if i can save up the money between now and then, and (b) what lili's
LiliLamont: How old are you, Bambi?
doctec: or the lack thereof
C. Simril: we will miss you when you leave us here, lili
C. Simril: i'm elated that you've joinedus
klokwkdoggerlski: it helps not to wear that waitress uniform...
doctec: (b) what lili's work situation is
doctec: (damn chat thing cut me off)
Bambi: 48 I think on last count LOL
Bambi: I don't pay much attention ... I don't feel it unless I am in pain
doctec: i'll be 49 this september
C. Simril: have you notiiced thas tmost ot us firefans are between 40-60?
C. Simril: which is about the time their work first would have hit our minds old enoughto dig it?
Bambi: yeah...heard my first firesign on a progressive station when I was 18
doctec: ye
LiliLamont: I couldn't resist, Cat. I was reading a transcript of Doc's that was recorded by an insurance company about the accident that helped him buy a new car. Of course, I had to contribute to the transcript, much to doc's delight.
doctec: ounds about right
Bambi: but clem was the one who really got me interested in FST
C. Simril: a few youngines like has no name. what ever happend tio thim"?
klokwkdoggerlski: it has much to do with whether they play the stuff when you're susceptible
Bambi: I enjoyed it at 18 very much...but didn't have any albums or know anyone who did until clem
ah,clem: 2/19/55=.001913876 aprox, Bambi
C. Simril: n ot anymore klok
C. Simril: thanks to online stuff
LiliLamont: Hey, Cat, even Eleni has enjoyed FST. And she's 32.
Bambi: there's clem now ... speak of the devil LOL!
C. Simril: dex sent me 6/7/70 firesign show which i originally recorded only much better copy
klokwkdoggerlski: they have to play it on radio stations. all radio stations in US owned by Clear Channel, to a first approx.
Bambi: our kids enjoy FST too ... 28, 26, 24
C. Simril: yes, my young daughter loved perogei tirebiter songf
LiliLamont: God save us from Clear Channel.
klokwkdoggerlski: so no FST outlet, aside PBS. when they feel like running their stuff and there is no war, exploding shuttle, or severe rainshowers in Postum, NM...
doctec: clear channel, like microsoft, scares me big t
C. Simril: just as we felt in mid 60s when fm opend up, with our computers we can replicate that freedom, lili
LiliLamont: Or it's not too controversial, unfortunately.
klokwkdoggerlski: God didn't save Minot, ND. Big ammonia spill, and they called 6 stations. All owned by CC. None responded. Sheriff tried for an hour.
C. Simril: ok, the firsing need to find work as voice actors ala proc or whartever
LiliLamont: I stream constantly, Cat.
C. Simril: mioont? that was the big city people from my home town went to tot shop
C. Simril: i scream 4
Merlyn: that ought to get their FCC licenses pulled, kwd
klokwkdoggerlski: it was just about wiped out by ammonia cloud, but Clear Channel couldn't be bothered
klokwkdoggerlski: yeah, in this Next World, everybody gets Dixie Chick'ed
C. Simril: your country is even more fucked up than even the most perceptive of you know
ah,clem: automated radio stations do not return phone calls...
doctec: oh yeah, cat, we know
C. Simril: i was down there a few days ago. i was scared
doctec: (well some of us anyway, the ones who don't have their heads in the sand)
klokwkdoggerlski: ...but Clear Channel owns the FCC, Merl -- didn't you hear? I suppose you haven't heard about Admiral Bob's Navy, either ;-)
C. Simril: and i'm, FROM there
doctec: we're from the government, we're here to help... NOT
klokwkdoggerlski: Cat - your statement is metaphysically absurd. Or at least meta unprovable by normal human resident of US...
klokwkdoggerlski: ...this former Zinc Bushing company...
||||||||| Peter Bergman sneaks in around 12:29 AM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last week's "unpleasant incident."
C. Simril: ok, klok. there are many things ot admire in the us. vehicular homicide as a mandatory 10 year sentence in washington state, where the killer committed her crim,e but was tried in canuck courst where murder is utterly legal. that's just one, eh?\
C. Simril: peter?
C. Simril: glad to finally see you here
LiliLamont: I missed something, here. I had to let a wet cat in. There's another wet cat out there.
Merlyn: hey peter!
klokwkdoggerlski has heard of fashionably late, but this are ridililous
Bambi: hi peter
doctec: is this the real peter bergman or one of his min
C. Simril: bush and company
C. Simril: we are always wet, lili.
doctec: minions?
klokwkdoggerlski: according to quantum theory, in a vacuum of cats, it's very likely that two will appear, Lili
LiliLamont: Also known as ShrubCo, by Mark Morford of SFGate.
C. Simril: how was the tour, peter?
C. Simril: come a long way?
klokwkdoggerlski: are those the mini onions i've read about, Doc?
doctec: klok: yes. peter, sorry to hear the tour was a washout. i'm really glad i got to see you & maryedith in nyc.
Peter Bergman: It's a pleasure to join you all in the chat room on the incipience of my offing to Moab Utah the Palm Springs of the central desert. I'm gong to do a little ha ha at the Grass Roots Radio Conferece.
LiliLamont: AKA, shallots.
doctec: cool pete
C. Simril: are you still touring with michelle shocked? is this a new thing?
klokwkdoggerlski: in Moab, there prob'ly ain't many leaves, so all that's left is roots (rock, reggae?)
doctec: so you're going to off Moab?
doctec: sounds like a hoot
LiliLamont: GRRC? Is it something we can stream or otherwise tune into, Peter?
klokwkdoggerlski: you could do Moab-y Dick, Rehearsed
C. Simril: mo' ab, whitey whales
Bambi: be sure to say hi to Ruth and Boaz in Moab LOL
doctec: they stick the microphones in the ground so they can be real close to the grass roots
doctec: or something like that
doctec: then they run the feed through a box and onto the net
Bambi: just a little bible humour there ... very little
Merlyn: I'm going to try and turn peter's name red; this cannot fail, but hold on...
doctec: it's magic!
Peter Bergman: The "Almost Naseous Tour" was my introduction to living on a rock and roll bus. It's amazing how much hunger there is out there for radical humor. Most of the audience was there to see Michelle, who is pretty political, but the response to Maryedith and myself was truly amazing.
Bambi: cool merlin
klokwkdoggerlski: and hello to my friend Aaron and his wives Etta, Martha, Vinda, Wanda, and Lanna...
C. Simril: ken kesey is alive and living within you, eh , pete?
doctec: the pendulum swings, the silent majority are now all democrats
klokwkdoggerlski: ouch! that red is too bright this late at night in this sector!
Bambi: well, we sure love radical humour
Merlyn: (didn't use his password, but I know it's really him because he's posting from adelphia, and he's using NN7.0b1 under mac OSX)
C. Simril: or else why would we be here?
Peter Bergman: Never too late for a little biblical humor here in the last days. I suppose the auctioning off of America by the administration could be seen as a Last Days Sale
C. Simril: we believe you, merl
Bambi: there's the red :)
doctec: that's for damn sure pb
klokwkdoggerlski: i was impressed when Michelle went off to work with Billy Bragg; it's very brave to be political these days
ah,clem: not after curfew in sector R, or N.
LiliLamont: Peteer: That is a real relief, considering the reports on Bush's popularity that NPR has been airing. It's truly frightening. I'm trying to figure out who put crack in the national water supply, but your comment gives me hope.
Bambi: a real fire sale it seems
doctec: it's a fucking tragedy - in five acts, three of them unnatural
Bambi: things have certainly begun to take some real turns lately
klokwkdoggerlski: Lili - someone who wants to own it
C. Simril: but did your involvement with the show end because of lack of ticket sales, pete?
Bambi: some bad turns
Peter Bergman: Okay, I'll show you my password, Doctor. This is Mudhead in the virtual flesh. Paul Krassner will be joining me in Moab. Should be a good couple of days.
klokwkdoggerlski: there are no fifth acts in American life?
C. Simril: you and paul together again.
doctec: that's great - you & krassner should get the faithful riled up real good
LiliLamont: Usually, "This American Life" is only in three acts.
C. Simril: peter paul and harry?
klokwkdoggerlski: on the road to Damascus
doctec: it's time for another social upheaval (civilization, ho!)
klokwkdoggerlski: I think that's a Union restriction, Lili
Bambi: maybe they will see the light on the road to damascus LOL
klokwkdoggerlski: maybe they will see the clock on the Ballast Office and have themselves an epiphany. who knows?
doctec: give them a light, and they will smoke it anywhere
Peter Bergman: We left the show because sales were soft in the South and we yearned for our beds in the West. As to Mr. Bush's popularity. 911 will haunt us for a decade, but if only someone of stature younger than Sen. Byrd would remind us how few clothes the emperor has, we could deal with this bunch of loonies.
C. Simril: much as i'd like your country to dissappear, because of listening to you on radio free oz, and vin scully, i have vast resonances of pleasure ecoing form my earlhy decaddes in la
Merlyn: Whoa, the Moab is tomorrow! I'll get an announcement out
LiliLamont: Seriously, KWD? Seems a little too progressive to kowtow to such restrictions.
klokwkdoggerlski: bunch of loonies? is there more Canadian currency loose again? I thought it was just a dearth of $2 bills, but...
doctec: klok: lol
C. Simril: when you say ":we" in your last sentence, it sounds like you on kpfk in 66. you assume a much larger we than is actually in control of your country. then as now
klokwkdoggerlski: Lili - it's too late and i'm too far into the effects of my (single) Negra Modello to be sirius. vega, maybe
LiliLamont: I'm not surprised that sales were soft in the south, although I have family in Oklahoma that would have embraced it. But they aren't ordinary Okies, thank gid.
Peter Bergman: Yeah, tomorrow evening I'm doing a bit of standup and hosting the talent show on Saturday. I think the core of the resistance will continue to come from community radio, if only they weren't so damned humor challanged
C. Simril: it intrigues and elates me that you are so optimistic
klokwkdoggerlski: ride my pony on the reservation!
doctec: great ozzy osbourne quote i heard recently (i'm paraphrasing here): "some people you meet have a really great vibe, some have kind of a wishy washy vibe and some have a really awful vibe. i met president bush - he has NO vibe!"
doctec: yeah, the whole political correctness thing has the radicals totally muzzled when it comes to humor these days
klokwkdoggerlski: doc - LOL, LOL
Bambi: LOL .. good one Peter ... humour challenged is about right
C. Simril: peter, i have a tape of kpfk oz show being taken over by the "provos"
LiliLamont: Community radio is humor challenged, P? I figured that humor is the only way to survive the Bush years. I find myself talking to myself when I listen to that asshole on NPR. I can't stand to listen to the man. His syntax rankles my inside English teacher.
Peter Bergman: We are experiencing the painful last throwes of the old whits guys world. Ther have a lot of power and there's so many enemies out there to make and keep them busy. I'm optomistic, but know we're in for some trying times.
C. Simril: were you kicked off the station because of that? i've always wondered
doctec: i know i'm trying...
||||||||| Bambi departs at 12:43 AM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
||||||||| Bambi sneaks in around 12:43 AM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last week's "unpleasant incident."
ah,clem: we redialed, Bambi
Bambi: This whole country is so engrained in political correctness ... on both sides of the political fence
klokwkdoggerlski: hmm. the white guyz still got all the $$$, though; it's just that most of the other white guyz now seem to be very frightened of us
Bambi: ah, that explains it ... thanks clem
Bambi: I was wondering what happened
Peter Bergman: I was suspended for a week for the Provo incident which I'm mentioning in my material tomorrow as one of the five times I was fired off radio. Actually including the FST firings it's more but I'm keeping it personal.
C. Simril: pete, when i moved ot van the first time in 72, my japanese girl fireidnt atr the time was frightedned awayh by too manh white people. now my wife oof 28 years feels smothered by the ubiquity of other asians here.
klokwkdoggerlski: ...and when that happens, sometimes, history shows, they tend not to be there when you need them...like when it's time to borrow a few bucks ;-)
doctec: "smothered by the ubiquity" - that really sums up my take on society these days cat
Bambi: we downloaded the non-aired PBS piece ... enjoyed it
||||||||| c ease waltzes in at 12:45 AM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
klokwkdoggerlski: yes, but Cat, I think we have a real shot at a new 3-day weekend: Chinese New Year's (or else Cinco De Mayo)
||||||||| Merlyn aka 'The Reaper' has killed off C. Simril at 12:46 AM
doctec: yes, thank grid npr.org has the firesign archive available for listening and enjoyment
LiliLamont: I felt like that in Tokyo, obviously. But here, I'm just smothered by WASPS, fortunately not the WWASPS in Utah with their weird child camps.
c ease: my capacity to spell is about as extant as my daughter's breath
doctec: note to self: C. Simril is now "c ease"
||||||||| Peter Bergman runs out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's Peter Bergman?! It's 12:46 AM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Mudhead close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 12:47 AM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the Aviary.
doctec: bumme
Bambi: cool...will have to check that out doc ... thanks!
Bambi: bummer
c ease: bergman, he gone now
Bambi: hope he just timed out and will come back
doctec: yeah bambi, just type "firesign theatre" in the search box, the main firesign page should com up near the top of the list
Mudhead: I re-upped to say good-bye until next time
klokwkdoggerlski: everything is archived now, but no one listens except to the Fox
||||||||| Mudhead says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, Mudhead exits at 12:48 AM.
c ease: i could not believe that
Bambi: will do that thanks .... are they in mp3 format too?
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'xmas bunny', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 12:48 AM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
c ease: bergamn chatted with us
c ease: merl, is that your doing?
c ease: merl, is that your doing?
xmas bunny: Howdy neighbors
Bambi: I hate realaudio

doctec: i know how recalcitrant those cats of yours can be
Bambi: night lili
LiliLamont: First, I have to get him to the door. It's pouring outside.
||||||||| It's 12:50 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| ah,clem - dead from the yaws
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Merlyn: maybe he hit the exit button by accident
Bambi: wow.... yaws got clem
: nothing like a good dose of fresh catnip to get their attention
||||||||| Gusts of wind blow in from outside and the thumpa-thumpa-thumpa of helicopter blades is heard as Happy Panditt's chopper lands on the lawn and xmas bunny disembarks at 12:50 AM.
LiliLamont: Good night, guys. Doc, I'll see you tomorrow.
xmas bunny: what the heck ?
doctec: ensconced in the basement as i am now, i am unaware of the raging deluge above ground
klokwkdoggerlski: good luck, lili!
Bambi: night lili hope you are feeling better
xmas bunny: I just got dumped

doctec: oh yes - you will!
doctec: thanks sweetheart, sleep well
LiliLamont: Bon nuit, all.
klokwkdoggerlski: i hope that rain goes somewhere else once it leaves CT, not here to RI
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "12:51 AM and late as usual, it's ah,clem, just back from Billville."
doctec: xooxoxxoxoxox
: llili, you deserve the best
Bambi: wb clem
xmas bunny: ah, clem did the system just dump you out to the main page ?a
||||||||| Gusts of wind blow in from outside and the thumpa-thumpa-thumpa of helicopter blades is heard as Happy Panditt's chopper lands on the lawn and cease disembarks at 12:52 AM.
ah,clem: was it something I said?
ah,clem: yes, bunny
Bambi: hmmmm
||||||||| Merlyn aka 'The Reaper' has killed off C. Simril at 12:52 AM
cease: can any of you folks belive what just happened?
xmas bunny: funny the same thing happened to me too
xmas bunny: let me guesss you got dumped to the main page
klokwkdoggerlski: the "system" seems to have dumped all Americans out to hte main page...
cease: i have been trying to talk to peter bergman since 1996
ah,clem: weird
Bambi: it did it to cat again too
cease: it just happend now
klokwkdoggerlski: we're 2 out of 4 now

klokwkdoggerlski: kwd caught 2 hours' of Zs earlier, resulting in a late entree, though
klokwkdoggerlski still wants to see all of them live
klokwkdoggerlski: nearby

ah,clem: well, looks like the fireworks are over, only the smoke remains, See you all next wek, or tomorrow for fnl. (www.skybirdradio.org)

Merlyn: More info on the grassroots radio conference is at http://www.kzmu.org/Grassroots/GrassrootsKZMU.htm
Merlyn: sure, cat
xmas bunny: wait, a termite walks into a bar and asks what ????
klokwkdoggerlski: goodnite, Bambi
cease: its kinda painful to do with us judsgent of my plays in play
Bambi: hope all works out cat about the memorial site
doctec: xmas bunny: he asks "is there a duck on my head?"
Bambi: klok
klokwkdoggerlski: a firesign theatre performer walks into a bar in Moab and...
Bambi: night klok ...darn refresh got me
xmas bunny: man i have to get a day job on the west coast in order to be here for the real stuff
klokwkdoggerlski: ...oh, that's right, there aren't any bars in Moab...
||||||||| It's 1:00 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| LiliLamont - dead from The Plague
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Bambi: have a great week
doctec: Peter Krassner says "you and what army?"
cease: doc, that is from my new play as groucho is infectred with frisco ducks
||||||||| Bambi runs out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's Bambi?! It's 1:00 AM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
||||||||| ah,clem says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, ah,clem exits at 1:00 AM.
klokwkdoggerlski: come to think of it, there isn't any grass, either
cease: by lili
xmas bunny: this getting home at 9pm PST is too late for this crowd
klokwkdoggerlski: what infraction did groucho commit
klokwkdoggerlski: ?
doctec: wasn't that a big dance hit from the '70s, frisco duck?
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 1 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
doctec: xmas: yeah, it's 1am here on the least coast and way beyond my bed thyme
klokwkdoggerlski: what i like is the condensed minimalism of it all, how the cover of "Marx and Lennon" says 1200 words with no -30-
xmas bunny: They never come into the hills
klokwkdoggerlski: Mystic is by the sea
klokwkdoggerlski: sometimes like fire...
xmas bunny: I went to mystic seaport
klokwkdoggerlski: very relaxing on the off season, and the Musem has a Naptha Launch -- and they're hard to find
klokwkdoggerlski: plus, there is a good pizza place there
xmas bunny: pepperoni ? I spell my name xmas
doctec: Fels Naptha?
klokwkdoggerlski: not to mention that the Seaquarium has a special arrangement with some of the local seafood restaurants...
klokwkdoggerlski: kinda - it's a petroleum product one step short of ether
doctec: ether or, i always say
klokwkdoggerlski: the story goes that you needed a Licensed Steam Engineer to run a steam launch
klokwkdoggerlski: and neauvo riche types needed power launches to get out to their cheapo yachts
xmas bunny: Or a good steamer to have a hot lunch
klokwkdoggerlski: so someone figured out how to make a "steam engine" that used naptha vapor as the working fluid
cease: doc, are we up too late for your?
doctec: i took a power launch with a nasa engineer once
doctec: we had laser beans
klokwkdoggerlski: not only that, the naptha could run a burner to vaporize itself into "steam"
doctec: no, i'm up too late for myself
xmas bunny: and what beans they were, bucko
doctec: but that's par for the course - especially this week
cease: i thought you wre long gone, liike a turkey thru the bosporus
klokwkdoggerlski: so if you have hot vaporized stuff just short of ether and something nearby that's on fire, well---
doctec: i popped back in 'cause i saw lili had joined in the chat
xmas bunny: Of course my favorite vegetable is Jelly Beans
doctec: and then playing the role of ossman, pb shows up
doctec: i'm glad i came back!
klokwkdoggerlski: there were lots of horrible accidents, and despite a 12 foot stack for the exhaust and copper flashing all around the engine compartments, there aren't many naptha launches left to view
cease: and front too, eh, lil
doctec: i suppose there's still a chance ossman will show, but will i be able to keep my eyes open long enough to chat with him if he does?
xmas bunny: The ossman show ???
klokwkdoggerlski: it's curious that they all appear so late -- it's almost like they live on the west coast or something...
cease: did you expecft bergman, doc
doctec: a dying technological curio, klok?
doctec: cat: no
doctec: merlyn had said earlier that ossman might show
cease: me 3
klokwkdoggerlski: let's just say that many burn with curiosity to see one, DT
doctec: did not know or expect that pb would pop in
doctec: burning with curiosity - is that anything like cooking with gas?
cease: in my life, i thought , never
klokwkdoggerlski: but it technically was not a steam engine, so any (often drunken) bozo could legally run one -- and from the number that survive, many did...
doctec: cat: never discount a possibility, no matter how slim the odds
klokwkdoggerlski: it's kind of like making a steam engine that runs using gasoline instead of water
cease: and in terms of conceptual chronolgy i would say the possibility of bit's rising ffrom the dead is a standard of possibilty
klokwkdoggerlski: well, i feel honored, anyway
xmas bunny: I guess the question is, how many burning Naptha boats does it take to put a yacht on fire
doctec: bit or anyone no longer animate
cease: you do a lot of drugs, xmas?
doctec: is this a riddle xmas?
xmas bunny: whats your definition of a lot
klokwkdoggerlski: they got more docks than yachts, bunny, since there was better wate4ring holes ashore
doctec: about an acre i'd say
cease: enuf to conceptualist another reality
xmas bunny: ah, the fire would start before they got to the yacht
klokwkdoggerlski: is that like Owlsley?
xmas bunny: doc: then the answer would be no, not a lot
doctec: ok - just checking x
xmas bunny: cease: other realities? what a concept
cease: ive always likd owls. was one in halloween in 54 yorkton
klokwkdoggerlski is having trouble dealing with this reality right now, vy late
klokwkdoggerlski: running out of steam, naptha, gas, whatever
xmas bunny: I never did see the end of Merlyn's story about a termite that walks into a bar......oh well
klokwkdoggerlski never saw one (or any Owlsley tabs, either, for that matter) until a migration 10 yrs ago - some poor devil got forced down by weather and holed up in one of my trees
klokwkdoggerlski: the end: the bar becomes sawdust, of course!
doctec: cf milton berle joke library, # 3,704,336-b
cease: never taken an owsley acid or any other psychedlic druig. alas\i have never
cease: i have never taken a hallucinagenics drug.
klokwkdoggerlski: doc - it's 'way late. I really think that was -337-b, wasn't it?
klokwkdoggerlski: me neither, Cat, although it might help with the voices...
doctec: klok: yeah you're right. i think i'm losing it right about now, need to get some shuteye and see if i can find it again tomorrow
doctec: thanks for hanging out y'all
klokwkdoggerlski: ok, well, i'm off. nite everyone
doctec: it's been real, it's been fun, it's been real fun
xmas bunny: sawdust? of course I've seen dust, usually put it in the rubbish bin
cease: i suspect they exist, but i wonder what one can take to alter one's perceptions, so tha tone can murder two innocent girls, and then claim momentary madness,?
klokwkdoggerlski: shall we call it a new daye?
xmas bunny: night klok
doctec: now it's time to say good night - good night, sleep tight
Merlyn: hey would someone like to try a quick debugging test?
doctec: catch y'all on the flip side
klokwkdoggerlski: what does the society that allows this call what it did, Cat? permanent madness??
Merlyn: nite doc
klokwkdoggerlski: nite
cease: ok then
xmas bunny: sure i am not going anywhere
||||||||| klokwkdoggerlski leaves to catch the 1:18 AM train to Hellmouth.
doctec: exit, stage left, dragging heels all the way.... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
xmas bunny: nite doc
||||||||| At 1:18 AM, doctec vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
cease: that you east coaster stahy awak so long is amazomh
Merlyn: hey bunny, will you go into "I'm Away" mode?
Merlyn: or car
Merlyn: or cat
xmas bunny: Merlyn, how can i help
Merlyn: select I'm away so your name goes into parentheses
Merlyn: asdf
Merlyn: Hmm, OK, thanks
Merlyn: I thought I found a bug, but that worked OK...
Merlyn: all done, bunny
xmas bunny: sure
xmas bunny: any other easy tasks laying around ?
Merlyn: oh, yes, actually
Merlyn: First I'll go into I'm away mode, then you go in & out of it a couple of times
xmas bunny: Fire away
xmas bunny: Roger doger
xmas bunny: back ?
Merlyn: hmm, that worked too
Merlyn: I thought it might not...
Merlyn: Oh, did you get out of it by typing something?
xmas bunny: seems to take awhile to get back in after being away
Merlyn: Try again, this time go in & out by selecting "i'm away" and "i'm back" instead
xmas bunny: Ah didnt know I had to type
xmas bunny: Ok
Merlyn: no, don't type
Merlyn: d'oh! yes, it's just me not understanding my own code from long ago
Merlyn: OK, no bug after all...
xmas bunny: it locks up on me, i cant type
Merlyn: either clicking in the text typing box or refreshing your browser might fix it...
xmas bunny: clicking in the text box wasnt working, couldnt get a cursor
xmas bunny: only thing I could do was to send a private message to you
xmas bunny: strange, refresh is the only way to get the cursor back
Merlyn: what browser are you using (and version)?
xmas bunny: test
Merlyn: I saw that with IE 4 or something
xmas bunny: IE 6.0.2800 or something like that
Merlyn: yes, a manual refresh or selecting something from the pulldown menu redraws the bottom frame and that fixes it, but I don't know why it happens, I think it's a browser bug
||||||||| It's 1:30 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| cease - dead from the fiddlers
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
xmas bunny: so when i go through the logs for tonight, pb plays the part of who ?
Merlyn: He's "Peter Bergman", and eventually I got his name to turn red
xmas bunny: hmmmm that was a clever disguise
xmas bunny: no one would have suspected that Peter Bergman was in fact Peter Bergman
xmas bunny: Of course the best place to hide something is in plain sight
Merlyn: well, I'm going to take off, I just added a command to make someone's name red as a standard command
Merlyn: bye
xmas bunny: Nite
||||||||| Merlyn says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, Merlyn exits at 1:35 AM.
xmas bunny: So as we bid a fond fairwell to this day, and watch the Log slowly disolve into the fire of eternity, we bid you all adieu
||||||||| xmas bunny rushes off, saying "1:42 AM? Mark Time is almost on! Where's a radio?"
||||||||| Catherwood enters, and announces to all and sundry "It's 4:31 AM, time to change the log file and clean out unused rooms; please exit the chat room for a minute or two. Thank you for your patience."
