||||||||| 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 October 09, 2003 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood enters with THE FAQ IS HERE close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 6:24 AM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the Aviary.
THE FAQ IS HERE: THE WAITING ROOM
THE FAQ IS HERE: I WANT FAK YOU
||||||||| THE FAQ IS HERE walks away to I WANT FAK YOU LIDDY.
||||||||| 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 iWANT FAK YOU LIDDY disembarks at 6:29 AM.
||||||||| iWANT FAK YOU LIDDY sneaks away to Public Address System...
||||||||| 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 W.C. disembarks at 10:36 AM.
W.C.: Of course! Of course, it was a jackel-headed woman with her eyes akimbo, a King sitting sideways on his throne, adrip with gold, chipped nose up-lifted -- thusly! All engraven that refreshes, a tale told by an idiot, and the head of a Fox!
||||||||| "Hey W.C.!" ... W.C. turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 10:36 AM, I don't have to go yet!"...
||||||||| 1:52 PM: Merlyn LeRoy jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past hour!"
Merlyn LeRoy: Just coming in early, because I'll be on a plane heading for London later on.
Merlyn LeRoy: I hope the automatic posting software works while I'm gone...
Merlyn LeRoy: See you next Thursday (not to be confused with See You Next Wednesday)
||||||||| 1:53 PM -- Merlyn LeRoy left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, October 09, 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?"
||||||||| Outside, the 9:19 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving Charles Foster Dudley coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "9:21 PM and late as usual, it's cease, just back from Billville."
Charles Foster Dudley: It's the case of the missing plot!
||||||||| Charles Foster Dudley says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, Charles Foster Dudley exits at 9:21 PM.
cease: aha
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Dr. Headphones into the room, accepts a grimy quarter as a gratuity, mumbles something about 9:22 PM, then departs.
Dr. Headphones: hey cat
cease: i decided not to go to class tonight. too far to drive with one arm damaged
cease: i seem to have just mr. dudley
Dr. Headphones: what happened to the arm?
cease: surgery on it yesterday
Dr. Headphones: nothing real serious i hope

cease: more of an annoyance than i threat, i think
||||||||| Elayne enters at 9:24 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and runs off to the Haberdashery Barn.
Dr. Headphones: i hope it was successful this time. my dad has dermatologist appt. every month for that reason
Dr. Headphones: hey el
Elayne: Hi Dr H, Cat!
cease: hi el
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Weapons of Mass Yamamoto into the room, accepts a grimy quarter as a gratuity, mumbles something about 9:24 PM, then departs.

Dr. Headphones: hey, wmy

Weapons of Mass Yamamoto: I'm an Intriguing guy
Dr. Headphones: on that subject, anyone with access to pbs should watch frontline tonight. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/truth/
Weapons of Mass Yamamoto: Just a Modern Guy you might say
cease: yes i'll be watching that
Dr. Headphones: from what i read earlier about this show, should be required viewing for every american voter (especially those wacky republicans)
Elayne: Robin's watching it now, Dr. H
cease: just watching the depressing kobe bryant news
Elayne: He's talking about the wood-looting.
Dr. Headphones: comes on here at 10, so i will leave the chat to devote 100% attention to it
Dr. Headphones: ah, e, i'm delayed here, i guess. i have 2 pbs stations to choose from, both air at 10pm
cease: i'm taking a break from student life to chat with y'all be we head off for nihon
Dr. Headphones: cat: a spate of quakes there lately, are you going to the danger zone? or is all of it a quake area?

Dr. Headphones: that's one natural phenomenon i have never experienced. and i can't say i want to, either

Weapons of Mass Yamamoto: Shake and Bake and Quake. We had a 5.0 in NY last yr
Weapons of Mass Yamamoto: Got used to em in CA
Elayne: When do you leave, Cat?
cease: 29th
Dr. Headphones: i was real surprised a couple of years ago when i went to memphis. they have a large (6-8 pages) section on quakes in their "info" section of the phone book. i couldn't understand it until i asked and they told me about the new madrid quake in very early 1800s. made the miss. river flow backwards
Weapons of Mass Yamamoto: It kept the wolves awake, too
Elayne: I'm more concerned with CA quakes, particularly San Fran, the next Big One is way overdue.
Dr. Headphones: what really scares me more than anything else with the natural stuff is the way yellowstone is one giant caldera and it's heating up and starting to move now
cease: only michael moore book i've read. must read more
Dr. Headphones: it goes off every 600k years and it's way overdue now
Dr. Headphones: cat: he's got a new one out now, can't remember name
cease: yes i've read excerpts from it on line
cease: i was referring to The Big One, his first
Dr. Headphones: he's sometimes slightly abrasive, but on the whole, i like his style
Elayne: Well, I just dropped out to say hello. I'm going back to the Yankees-Sox game now. :)
Elayne: Next week, all!
Dr. Headphones: ok, e
||||||||| Elayne says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, Elayne exits at 9:35 PM.
cease: by el
Weapons of Mass Yamamoto: A slight abrasive is just what the Doctor ordered
Dr. Headphones: if i were a baseball fan, i'd probably be worked up this year. i hear the world will end when chicago meets boston in the series. one of the prophecies from the bible :)
cease: i will be quite pleased
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 9:37 PM, dragging klockwkdog by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this bozo?"
Dr. Headphones: hi klock, what's with the extra "c"?

klockwkdog: hmm, yeah, I better redo myslef
cease: isnt he dead?
||||||||| 9:38 PM -- klockwkdog left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
||||||||| 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 klokwkdog disembarks at 9:38 PM.
Dr. Headphones: ah, normality.
Weapons of Mass Yamamoto: Better
klokwkdog: yeah, but one of his last was "A Dying Cub's Fan's Lament

Dr. Headphones: wasn't sure of the spelling, flipped a coin, got "s"
Weapons of Mass Yamamoto: it's "Z" anyway
Dr. Headphones: i could have googled it, but what's a mizspelling amung freendz?
klokwkdog: check for holes; that's bad (hold CD to the light, see how much comes thru any holes in the label). Scratches on the plastic side, if they are bad enough to hurt play, can be overcome
cease: orzed as we say up here
Weapons of Mass Yamamoto: you will over come!
Weapons of Mass Yamamoto: Zed, yes
Dr. Headphones: reminds me of ouzo. some NASTY stuff

Dr. Headphones: cat: richard or karen?
Dexter Fong: Ken: According to Mark Twain, the rich and the poor both get hot and cold

Dexter Fong: Klok: Got your technical bulletin but haven't had time to read it fully let alone comprehend it =)
Dr. Headphones: i have lots of twain quotes in my file, love the guy
klokwkdog: beware any late-night compositions -- i may have been resisting sleep, Ash
Dexter Fong: His old lady Shania is pretty cool too
klokwkdog: thunder is good; thunder is impressive, but it's lightning that does the work

||||||||| At 9:56 PM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Tommy Armorall!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
klokwkdog: LOL
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Tommy Arbitron into the room, accepts a grimy quarter as a gratuity, mumbles something about 9:56 PM, then departs.

Dexter Fong: "Gatham...the sequel"
Dexter Fong: Gotham

klokwkdog: oops Ishtar
Bunnyboy: Kino edition, restored in Germany, under supervision of the Murnau Foundation. Sweet!

Weapons of Mass Yamamoto: His mostache is older than President Shicklegruber

Bunnyboy: oh, BTW, dumb plug here:
cease: and dave too
Tommy Arbitron: Did anyone vote for Larry Flynt? He's the only candidate who really understands what the internet is for.

Tommy Arbitron: Understood. I guess he's not a candidate anymore. The recall is over.
llanwydd: later doc
cease: see you in a couple weeks, headphones
Weapons of Mass Yamamoto: DAT wasn't half bad, but not suited for broadcast use
Bunnyboy: It's a leedle ditty called...BLAME "BOB".
doctec: and after all that effort it was the mp3 format that ultimately revealed the weakness in the record companies' business model
Tommy Arbitron: Is it too late to vote? Guess so.
||||||||| "Hey Dr. Headphones!" ... Dr. Headphones turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 10:14 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...

klokwkdog: no, they are all from Venus, Yam
doctec: cat: yeah i think he's walking a fine line, it may very well blow up in his face
llanwydd: got mail. brb
Dexter Fong: Dingo's ate my defense lawyer
doctec: it's a bad implementation of a good idea
Bunnyboy: Even know, it would land an R rating, because of the inclusion of the word Lenny Bruce got arrested for.
cease: i hope he doesnt get kobe bryant to endorse it
klokwkdog has begun The Fatal Shore, an early chapter of which runs down the wildlife and vegetation the transported convicts encountered
Tommy Arbitron: Of course, most young children think that the bongs being sold on the internet are exotic sexual appliances.
cease: ive read other hughes but not that one, klok. would like to before we visit aus
Dexter Fong: Throw another Abo on the Barbie
Weapons of Mass Yamamoto: That could be a use
Tommy Arbitron: Maybe they're right.
Bunnyboy: ehrm, now
doctec: cat: from what i read, any 'endorsement' arrangement would be antithetical to this initiative
klokwkdog: that any young children still think convinces me that there may be hope for America
Dexter Fong: Youngchildren think about Japanese toys

klokwkdog: it was that or Titan, Cat. I had to make a pick. Pretty good, so far; I thought it would be gruesome
cease: i think kalle just got bored with being a film maker so he started adbusters, even if i had to write most of it for him. now i think he's bored being a mag editor, wnat new challenge. nothing wrong with that, as long as the product is good
doctec: watching frontline now - makes me hate rumsfeld even more than i already do
cease: we get that here later
klokwkdog: my hatred is saturated; I have trouble even reading Talking Points Memo at this point
Tommy Arbitron: Frontline rocks.
cease: but adbusters shoes, are to say the least, counter intuitive
Weapons of Mass Yamamoto: That could be a use
Bunnyboy: the Rumsfeld is getting the heat, a bit.
doctec: the problem i see is in the idea that the 'black spot' could become a logo like any other - seems to me its use up to now is in the discrediting of existing logos and the lifestyles they support
klokwkdog: in RI, we are not allowed to get that atoll. Just Lawrence Welk and Antiques Roadshow
cease: rummyworld
Weapons of Mass Yamamoto: Lefttover Nixon Evil, him
klokwkdog: very fun review of the program in NYT Arts today, 'tho
doctec: bb: it's about bloody time - any indication that rummy is losing his grip on power in the current adminstration is a good one
klokwkdog: I'd say good riddance but for the small matter of $90 billion...
Tommy Arbitron: That sports show on HBO with Bob Costas... they did a segment about grass versus astroturf. Cheech Marin was a guest on that segment.
doctec: 87 mil plus interest?
Tommy Arbitron: I can't help but wonder if some kind of innuendo... No, I'm just paranoid.
klokwkdog: several sources have articles about C. Rice pulling the rug out from under Rumsfield
doctec: oops - i mean bil
Weapons of Mass Yamamoto: Plus interest pushes it towards a billioin
Weapons of Mass Yamamoto: trillion, rather
Bunnyboy: Pardon this dump. It's from a Washington Post article on Tony Randall, talking about the perfect funeral.
doctec: now if we could only pull the run out from under condoleeza... she's nearly as scary as the rest of them
klokwkdog: DT - no point in exact figures, 'cause we know it's going to be more, more, more
Bunnyboy: He says, quite seriously, that he doesn't want to speak publicly about his funeral plans, but then -- shifting back into comedian mode -- he spins a fantastic vision of the day.
Tommy Arbitron: Cheech did say that he prefers grass. I guess he'll be in for more persecution.
doctec: rug
Bunnyboy: "It's a national day of mourning, and the funeral is held in some vast, impressive place and dignitaries from all over the world come and every important person in the United States comes," he says. "George Bush and Richard Cheney come -- but they're not allowed in because everyone knew how much I hated them!"
klokwkdog: they had her on some news show Sunday and she looked very uncomfortable
Bunnyboy: "It's a national day of mourning, and the funeral is held in some vast, impressive place and dignitaries from all over the world come and every important person in the United States comes," he says. "George Bush and Richard Cheney come -- but they're not allowed in because everyone knew how much I hated them!"
Bunnyboy: "Rumsfeld, if he dared show his face!"
Bunnyboy: And Ashcroft?
Tommy Arbitron: Bunnyboy works for the Department of Redundancy Department.
Bunnyboy: "Ashcroft wouldn't dare come because there are going to be naked women -- breast-exposed women -- saying, 'This would've been for you, Tony!' "
Bunnyboy: He slaps his thigh about 15 times.
doctec: so who here actually believes ah-nud can actually legislate his way out of a paper bag?
cease: preffered grass to what, tommy?
klokwkdog: if GW is re-elected next year, it's going to be a rough ride for the US because the whole world now hates us, not just the Muslims. This bit about Turkish troops -> Mosul is about as clueless as they can get.
Dexter Fong: DT: He's in, now the professional replublicans take over
Weapons of Mass Yamamoto: No change under ah-node, I'll wager
Bunnyboy: That's it. Thanks for the indulgence.
Tommy Arbitron: I'm not that Tommy. I'm the other Tommy. No, not that other Tommy. The other other Tommy.
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Dave', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 10:28 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...

Bunnyboy: BTW, the new special edition DVD of THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT is a treat.
Tommy Arbitron: Dropped two fly balls and lost the 1966 World Series. The sunshine got in his eyes.
Dexter Fong afk for refill
klokwkdog: major major looked like henry fonda...
cease: was that before he joined the buddhist cult?
doctec: dex: i don't think so - he's too hollywood (with the liberal bent that implies) and his in-laws are all decocrats - i'd be very surprised if he backpedals on his pro-abortion and pro-gun control stances no matter how much pete wilson et all try to dissuade him of such notions
Weapons of Mass Yamamoto: I keep getting hits from Rand Mc Nally. Maybe I'll get a job
klokwkdog: ...or did the buddist cult join him?

Bunnyboy: doc: I'm with you. The Year of the Curse.
cease: did you sit on your pipe?
doctec: durocher
Dexter Fong is refilled
klokwkdog: DT - if they are both destined to aways lose, does that in fact mean the world will then end?
doctec: klok: we'll just have to see, now, won't we?

Tommy Arbitron: The purple haze got in his eyes.
Weapons of Mass Yamamoto: The worl can't end yet, we're not done ruining it
Dexter Fong: Klok: Vamp till ready
doctec: put it this way: if you log on to the chat 2-3 wks from now and there's no one logged in, then indeed the world may have indeed ended (film at 11)
Tommy Arbitron: "In the fifth inning of Game Two of the 1966 World Series, Davis committed not one, not two, but three errors." http://www.thebaseballpage.com/past/pp/daviswillie/
Bunnyboy: alt.obituaries had a obit titled AW, NUTS!, about a week ago. Seems this guy in Adis Abbiba (sic, I know) had been arguing with his wife (over the amount of money he spent on booze) and ended up in the doghouse. When he decided to smack her around a bit, she forcefully twisted his nads.
cease: i only remember 66 cuz dodgers got to the series, not what terrible things happened to them after that
doctec: i love the way frontline is validating every qualm i had about the wrongness of our getting into a skirmish with iraq earlier this year
Bunnyboy: The man died, as he was too embarrased to reveal how he had been injured. The wife is up on murder charges.
doctec: addis abbaba? i remember that name vaguely
doctec: bb: that's a great anecdote!
cease: very anecdotal
Dexter Fong: totally anecdotal
doctec: nadecdotal
Bunnyboy: "Are we going to Addis Abbaba, Mister LOO-THOR?"
cease: that's why he's so mean
doctec: riiiiight
Bunnyboy: Ned Beatty doesn't work enough.
Weapons of Mass Yamamoto: I'm glad I shagged off the old lady, then
