A Firesign Chat


||||||||| 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 30, 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, October 30, 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?"
||||||||| Catherwood escorts Green Door Yamamoto in through the front door at 9:08 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "9:11 PM and late as usual, it's klokwkaurora?, just back from Billville."
Green Door Yamamoto: Heh, behind the Green Door all by myself
klokwkaurora?: late, poo!
||||||||| Merlyn enters at 9:11 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and runs off to the Haberdashery Barn.
Merlyn: I'll be back, as the governor of CA would say...
klokwkaurora?: is that where folks from the Gentlemen's Wearhouse go for sheep?
Green Door Yamamoto: I guess
klokwkaurora?: i wish Arnie the best of gluck at the helm of that Titanic. according to the schedule I have here in the Old Testament, plague of locusts next...
klokwkaurora?: gotta fire up a pizza slice, BRB
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Behind The Green Door Yamamoto close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 9:15 PM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the Aviary.
Merlyn: why are there two yamamotos?
Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: I can't log in umnder my other name
Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: Ergo
||||||||| Merlyn aka 'The Reaper' has killed off Green Door Yamamoto at 9:17 PM
Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: Kill the "Green Door" Poser
Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: Was it greusome?
Merlyn: do you try logging in with the same login name? Does your IP address change?
Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: y
Merlyn: ok, since that seems to happen to you a lot, I'll send you a private msg how to log off your old name
Merlyn: that's how you can reap a dead name.
Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: ok
Merlyn: If I ever get around to rewriting this, I'll change the way some of it works so names that don't refresh get logged off sooner, but that's low priority
Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: ha
Merlyn: did you notice Catherwood now posts the announcement to the newsgroup?
Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: I'm on dialup and am lagging badly
Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: that
Merlyn: He'll post the logs too
Merlyn: what's your connection speed?
Merlyn: what's your connection speed?

Dexter Fong: Uh-oh..that shank has left Bambi with a very difficult lie
Bambi: this is Virginia Ken ... no emissions test like NJ and CA
Mudhead: I've had deadly emissions since I,ve been on the Vicodin
Dr. Headphones: ah, the old safety inspection scam
Dexter Fong: Bambi: They just check the trunk for snipers?
Mudhead: cut the belt
Dr. Headphones: when i lived in florida they tried that, found it was ineffective and discontinued it
Bambi: new vipers, one tire ... and we did do an oil change
Bambi: that honda is amazing ... all fluids were fine
Dr. Headphones: they check your oil at the inspection? wow, quite thorough!
Merlyn: did anybody notice that Catherwood does the chat announcement in the newsgroup now? He'll post the log, too.
Dexter Fong: Ken: They'll clean your clock too
Bambi: except oil ... but there is a good reason for that ... it has a small leak in a hard to get place on top of a seal.
Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: Damn
Mudhead: Vicodin helps with logs too

Dr. Headphones: mud, none on the official schedule, but you never know, now do you?
Merlyn: not that I've heard, mud
Dave: see, I don't have to worry about a car...yet, I'm glad I can't drive really, too fucking risky, then again, I'm risking my ass when I get in to a car and am trusting someone to not kill me somehow, so I guess there's both sides to it
Mudhead: not officially but you know?
Dr. Headphones: dave: life is a series of risks. it's how we handle them that determines whether we live or die
||||||||| "10:08 PM? I'm late!" exclaims Mudhead, who then runs out through the french doors and down through the garden.
Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: Dave-it's not me I worry about, it's the other idiots on the road
Dexter Fong: Very inclusive Yam =))
Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: I nearly plugged some hamburger head today, who pulled out like 2' in front of me

Bambi: paraphrased ... despite the quotes...at least I think so
Dr. Headphones: bambi: as along as there are crooks, locksmiths will have jobs
Bambi: I opt out of political parties
ah,clem: why does Yammy have such long nicknames? Does he not know we cannot type?
Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: Criminals are a vital partof the economy

Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: "Behind the Green Door"
ah,clem: not the movie? ( that was better than a song)
Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: 50's vintage country tune
Dexter Fong: Like Ken: Only knew of it as porno film from 70's
Dr. Headphones: not into c/w music much at all
Dexter Fong: Still...it's better than Deep Throat Yamamoto....I think

Dr. Headphones: yeah, where do you think they got the "deep throat" reference during watergate?
Dexter Fong: Marilyn and Whitaker Chambers

Dr. Headphones: i could never listen to woodstein say that without hearing the old spice tune being whistled in my head ;)
Bambi: oh, so there were two Chamber maids? hehehe
Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: What was on those films in the pumpkin? hmmmmmm?

Dr. Headphones: i love them smothered in butter
Dexter Fong: Ken: Do they skewer them length-wise of through the middle?
Bambi: lima beans are great as long as they are fresh ... canned ones stink
Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: Ken: yr deal reminds me of Charlie Brown: "I got a rock"
Bambi: yes, smothered in butter and salt & peppr
Bambi: pepper
klokwkaurora?: i use frozen sometimes
Dexter Fong: Klok: Yeah very hard to find fresh limas anymore
Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: You all can have mine
Dr. Headphones: dex: looked like through the shorter dimension on the flat side. not through the thin portion
Bambi: yes, that works too klok ... almost as good but not quite
Dexter Fong: Wow Ken!!A Lima-Klein
Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: You get more limas to the stick that way
Bambi: Baby Limas best of all
Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: Not the babies!
Dexter Fong: Baby Llamas smother in LLamas and served in Lima
Bambi: LOL
Dr. Headphones: didn't the senate just pass a bill against skewering babies?
Dexter Fong: smother in *Limas*
Dr. Headphones: sorry, that's not even humorous
klokwkaurora?: i worry about Diet for a Small Planet stuff when eating my mostly-veggie diet and try to put some kind of beans in with the rice ;-)

Dexter Fong: Ken: Went to Texas State fair while away, they were offering Armadillo and gator sausage
Dr. Headphones: yam: this was in a stew that had cooked for many hours.
Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: Gato tastes weird

Dexter Fong: Armadillo recipe: Pick up off road, roast on engine block for 300 miles
Merlyn: how do you know it CHICKEN that tastes like GATOR?
Bambi: doesn't taste like Claria?
klokwkaurora? just hopes he can find chicken that tastes like chicken these days...
Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: Well you gotta factor in that Bush et al would like to wipe out any vestige of FDR/LBJ programs, too
Merlyn: and what's the connection between hamburger helper and gator aid?
||||||||| 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 Rotonoto disembarks at 10:31 PM.
Bambi: hi Roto Dave!

Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: ajinimoto!
Rotonoto: that's what I told the sushi chef- stop calling me Dozo
||||||||| At 10:40 PM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Dexter Fong!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
Behind The Green Door Yamamoto: That's a cool book
Merlyn: really boring and talky, it's just an excuse to explain his utopian system, but it was a best seller
Dr. Headphones: different subject, is everyone here mourning death of price is right announcer?
Bambi: poor Dex
||||||||| "10:40 PM? 10:40 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Dexter Fong should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Dexter Fong enters and sits on the couch.

Dexter Fong: Roto: Reminds me of time wife and I went to Benihana for dinner, chef with flashing knives and flashy moves was throwing stuff all around, went to serve food by tossing length of table onto your plate...missed and went right in the lap of guy wearing white suit...all the other chefs were watching and laughing behind doorways
Dr. Headphones: i have gotten meals free before because of bad service. manager wants you to be satisfied, gives away. then i went back. had he not done that, never would have done it
Rotonoto: now *that* is a truly hysterical moment
Merlyn: did you tell him about the dirty fork?
Dexter Fong: Roto: Inscrutable oriental humor
Rotonoto: indeed, manager did persuade him not to suicide, only in America, right?
Dr. Headphones: i could not have witnessed hara-kiri in japanese restaurant

Rotonoto: errant chef take next flight to Tokyo (coach), they send him back for re-grooving at flashing knives chef school

Bambi: LOL
Dexter Fong: Bambi: Best connection usually in the school yard
||||||||| Outside, the 10:52 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving Charles Throat coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Dr. Headphones: next time get craftsman, lifetime guarantee on them
Bambi: hi charles
Dexter Fong: Are you the *real* Charles Throat?

Charles Throat: thanks klok
Rotonoto: yeah, but what about that consignment of aluminum bats in the warehouse?
Dr. Headphones: vampiric aluminum?

Charles Throat: I'm just a simple businessman, I run a dial-a-joke service
Bambi: magnausium
klokwkaurora?: i just about got bitten by one of those aluminum bats last night. they eat right thru the rafters in no time -- not to mention Hallowe'en being so close, it was scary
Bambi: LOL
klokwkaurora?: dial-a-joke? call 1-800-White Haus and ask for "George"...
ah,clem: ok, np, you cannot sent too many, just the amount you sent.
Charles Throat: Mission Accomplished
Dr. Headphones: klok: that's NOT funny. but unfortunately it is
Rotonoto: vely crever aluminum critters- disguise self as sports beis boru whacking implement, hang upside down from warehouse rafters
klokwkaurora?: yep, we're saving energy by using a dim bulb in the white house...
Merlyn: on the web, it's dubya dubya dubya...

Dexter Fong: Mad Neighbor fires shotgun, hits ammo supply, blows up house
klokwkaurora?: ?
Bambi: hmmmm....Murphy strikes again
Dr. Headphones: bambi: not sure. i don't hear sirens, so maybe just a backfire. sounded like a couple blocks over from ehre
Dexter Fong: And there's buck shot all over the road where Ken lives
Charles Throat: Watched EYKIW video the other night, funny as ever
Rotonoto: invent new fangled printer- simulate reversed carbon paper of typewriter era, customer aska for 'front and back printed', you give reverse carbon print, tell him hold in a front of mirror
Charles Throat: Mystic Connecticut?
Bambi: ah, close but no cigar ...
Charles Throat: Turn the mirrors to the wall, that will fix it
Merlyn: for a long time, it was the only 'in print' version of EYKIW
Dexter Fong: CT: No, Indiana

||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Bambi smiles
Dr. Headphones: clem, that's the life :)

Dexter Fong: Ken: Why does that remind you?
klokwkaurora?: Bambi -- just wait until your monitor gets older: white out and black out aplenty
Charles Throat: all their eyes are red
Dexter Fong: They're Sumaratrans
klokwkaurora?: better than having a cow (although it probably feels worse)
Bambi: clears ... gets the red out
Rotonoto: sumo rat wrestlers?

Bambi: from apple records...wait can I say that these days LOL
Charles Throat: Just off Nan Tuckett
Dr. Headphones: roto: would have to walk over to cd rack to be sure, so i'll take your word for it
Dexter Fong: Birds do it, bees do it, sometimes armadillos do it...but not for long

Rotonoto: oh, CD rack much too far away from Doctor's chair
Dr. Headphones: yeah, other side of room, and in the dark too. would have to take flashlight to read them
Charles Throat: deadly berrel full of ajinomoto

Charles Throat: I have all the XM shows on MP3 in my car ;)
Rotonoto: oh, man- would I love to get hold of a few of those
Bambi: the popcorn you're eating ... oh, never mind
Charles Throat: Took forever to convert them but worth it
Dr. Headphones: sounds like a winner to me, charles!
Rotonoto: probably as cool as the 1970's live recordings at KPFK
klokwkaurora?: but...but...aren't there more XM shows that keep coming, relentlessly, ruthlessly? so one can never have all
Charles Throat: Which I don't have all of ;(
||||||||| Freq Man sneaks in around 11:11 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last week's "unpleasant incident."

Rotonoto: you getta too many tracks, you mixa all down, call it 6 or 7 clazy guise
Freq Man: I'm glad I was there... they had an amp set up... and they were trying to record the music off all the amps... with two microphones... I said... why not come off all your amps into the ... um... I don't know... the MIXER!!!!! Ahhhhhh!

ah,clem: cheeks pierced...
Freq Man: I'd never get my ass pierced... never!
Bambi: not quite the same is it?
klokwkaurora?: look close enough to see individual particles and you see they're not particles at all, but highly conflicted individuals facing crushing choices like dinner for eight and only seven spoons -- what to do, what to do?
Rotonoto: LOL
Rotonoto: share, brother
Rotonoto: yes, due to poor economy, some sub-atomic particles have to work two jobs
klokwkaurora?: OK, time to go b influenced or confluenced by the stars or sydney omarr or something...night everyone
