A Firesign Chat


Special appearance by
Phil Austin

||||||||| Catherwood re-enters the Waiting Room and explains "This is the main discussion room which is logged each night."
||||||||| Catherwood announces, "The time is 4:33 AM - I now declare Thursday's chat log for November 20, 2003 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Woody One sneaks in around 7:46 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last week's "unpleasant incident."
||||||||| At 7:47 PM, Woody One runs out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
||||||||| Woody One enters at 7:48 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and runs off to the Haberdashery Barn.
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 8 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| It's 8:10 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Woody One - dead from the fiddlers
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "8:36 PM and late as usual, it's Jimmy Dean Yämamøto, just back from Billville."
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: late, Ha!
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: Snausages
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 8:40 PM, dragging ah,clem by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this bozo?"
ah,clem: hi
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: ha
ah,clem: how's things yammy?
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: Howdy Little Pardner
ah,clem: long day here, and I will guess it is just about to get interesting...
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: gah, my lag is maxing
ah,clem: hope it feels fetter by 9
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: Dunno
ah,clem: or better even
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 8:44 PM, dragging Merlyn by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this bozo?"
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: tuck w/dialup till the ex coughs up $300 or I move to KS
ah,clem: well I showed up, that is something...
ah,clem: we dialup and it does tuck
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: Y
ah,clem: no broadband here at all, not even dsl
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: Yahoo is going to späm mw w/ all sortsa stuff "I'd Be Interested in"
Merlyn: it might help to reduce the number of lines displayed for slow connections
ah,clem: I bet they will, (Yahoo)
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: balls to them
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: Wonder if I'll get any good mind-breaking records?
ah,clem: my lines are fine, a how are yours?
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: I've done these lines all nite
Merlyn: supposedly, Mick Jagger was asked how he got such lines in his face, and he answered "laugh lines"
Merlyn: the reporter shot back: "nothing's THAT funny"
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: Obviously not falmiliar w GDWI
ah,clem: itis not how funny it is, buthow you feel about it at the ime.
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: y
ah,clem: I have laughed at nothing all night, but that was a long time ago, and I do not remember much of it....
ah,clem: 1960 something...
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: back when the world moved forward
Merlyn: Waiting for more people, it looks like...
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: brb
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: and here I am
Merlyn: you didn't use the parentheses
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: (and here I am)
ah,clem: I am still here too, was talking to Bambi, she will be here soon
Merlyn: I'm back
Merlyn: no, I meant the "I'm away" pulldown that puts your name in parentheses
ah,clem: /back
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: oh
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: y
Merlyn: Catherwood says the time is 9:00 PM
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, November 20, 2003 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: Like that
ah,clem: what was the way to do a "me" command like in irc, Merl?
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: no
Merlyn: what does a "me" command do?
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: ok
ah,clem: I knew that once
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: nope
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto sez it does like this
ah,clem: quote name, then prints text, like ah, clem said "text"
ah,clem: like that
Merlyn: If you start a line with ":", it just puts the text after your name without boldface or the colon
Merlyn waves
ah,clem: ok, that was it, I just forgot
Merlyn says "hello", but has to type the quotes himself
Merlyn: I figured on using the colon to omit the colon
ah,clem: no quote needed, I did that to delimit "text"
ah,clem: question answered, tks
Merlyn: But I think your name will still be in in tiny text (except the ascii version posted in alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre)
ah,clem what is up, and where is Bambi?
ah,clem: yes, like that, that is fine
ah,clem: I am getting old, I forget things
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'Dr. Headphones', just granted probation at 9:08 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
Dr. Headphones: howdy, dear friends :)
ah,clem: Hi Dr.?
Dr. Headphones: no, clem, i'm not
ah,clem: so sad,
ah,clem: .
Merlyn: I saw eric idle, but he wasn't

Dr. Headphones: oh well, i've done it enough in the past that there must be something residual i could call upon in an emergency
Dr. Headphones: for those with an interest, frontline on pbs has 2 hr special on lee harvey oswald, on right now
ah,clem: yes, we all have that to rely on
Jimmy Dean Yämamøto: Bah, I wanted to See Eric Idle, but was working
Merlyn: what city, yam? He was in MPLS yesterday
Dr. Headphones: old kinescopes of the "announcement"
ah,clem: Eric is great, love the galexy song
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 9:11 PM, dragging Bambi by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this bozo?"
Bambi: hello there!
ah,clem: hi Bam!
Merlyn: Idle did a lot of songs, including that one
Dr. Headphones: did someone from python do a song about a ferret up my nose? i just saw that on the web this week, hilarious
Dr. Headphones: hey bambi

Phil Austin: Under the mushroom dome they play baisfutbol
doctec: they're floating like butterflies
Dexter Fong: ..and stinking like Highlanders
Cease: i hear they abound hearabouts. but i hear in japanese these daze
doctec: i'll take the highlanders and you take the lowlanders...
Dr. Headphones: monarchs all (god save the queen!)
doctec: and i'll be in houston before you
Dexter Fong: Doc: YOu gotta give me points
doctec: ok, here's a point: xacto!
Phil Austin: A drug dealer oona and I knew years ago sent us a sincere card that extolled the virtues of "buttflies and clowns."
Cease: the sapporo dome looks like a big ufo just landed in downtown saporo
Dexter Fong: Xecatly want I wanted
Dr. Headphones: a point is dimensionless
Cease: sincerity uber alles, phil
Dexter Fong: Get to the point!!
doctec: a jewel lifted - a thread broken - revealing 50 journeys back to yourself (college roommate's brother's custom packaging of sone mighty powerful windowpane - circa 1973)
Phil Austin: a string is a dimensionless point
Dr. Headphones: ah, doc, such memories of those daze
Dexter Fong: Dr. Cosmos explains it all later today
Phil Austin: a point is a multi-dimensioned string
Phil Austin: who is dr. cosmos
Cease: Take an Adze to AIDS today!
doctec: not only is it a dimensionless point, dangle it in front of a can and it can keep it entertained for hours
Dexter Fong: The NY KNicks have a string guard...no point at all
doctec: oops i meant CAT
doctec: i think the vodka is kicking in about now
Cease: does the cosmos have a direction?
Dexter Fong: Onward and upward
Dr. Headphones: cat: only direction is "out" since we're all at the middle of the universe
Phil Austin: wow. there's an idea. string theory expands with the can theorem. the strings can transmit to cans.
doctec: i don't know where we're going, but we're going to get there a lot faster than i thought we were
doctec: can you hear me now?
Bambi: http://www.oomnee.com/drc1intro.html
Dexter Fong: Whew! That's faster than anyone's ever been canned before
Cease: and they can cook your ass while you shit in the Brave New Japanese toilet-land
Phil Austin: yes, because the string/can hypotheses presupposes advance information
Dexter Fong: Cat: Rather skip that luxury
Phil Austin: cat: under the mushroom dome
doctec: pbs put all three hours of 'elegant universe' up on their web site - in both real player and quick time formats
Dexter Fong races off for refill fearing all will be gone before his return
Cease: under every roof, phil. freaked me right out. and the oddest of it is, now everyone can shit in ecstacy, the sewer system is still in the 19th century. you smell shit everywhere you go
Dr. Headphones: doc: i snagged the first 2 hrs, haven't recorded the 3rd yet. have it on disk in rm format
Phil Austin: I'm getting tired of these cutesy science programs. The weirdest was the Magnetic Storm one on Pbs.
Phil Austin: The mushroom exudes smells of interest to the Nipponese
Dr. Headphones: phil: watched that. i'm a science geek myself, loved it
||||||||| It's 12:00 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...
Cease: Bit learned a lot from cutesy science programmes in the 80s as i did in the 50s, phil
doctec: cutesy science - it's not just for breakfast anymore
||||||||| 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..
Dr. Headphones: i'm reading "demons and angels" now, about effort to combine religion and q.m.
Merlyn: or shows like Perry Meson
Cease: for an urgent scientific persuasion
Bambi: yeah, they just don't do science programs like they used to. Now back on the CoCo we had one called Robot Odyssy where you built robots with flip flops and ROMS you burned, and sent them on designated tasks.
Dr. Headphones: by dan brown, of "da vinci code" fame
Dexter Fong: BTW Phil: I absolutely loved "Nick Danger Meets E.T....just great
Phil Austin: alright, I'm being harsh. I just meant that they should have started with the switiching poles story instead of making it into a scare show by starting with the "O god, the magnetic shield will soon be gone" ploy
||||||||| Charles Foster Dudley sneaks in around 12:01 AM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last week's "unpleasant incident."
Dr. Headphones: hi cfd
Charles Foster Dudley: G'day Y'all!
Dexter Fong: Phil: Yes..but then it's *all* show bix isn't it?
Dr. Headphones: phil, you gotta grab 'em by the balls first!
Cease: hi dud.
doctec: tonight on amazing science: paper clips, threat or menace?
Dexter Fong: Hey Ernie
Bambi: hi CFD!
Phil Austin: dex: thanks. I barely remember it.
Dexter Fong: Phil: Well let me refresh you...it all starts in Nick's office...
Charles Foster Dudley: Phil I nneed another fix when's the new CD coming out?
doctec: don't they all start in nick's office?
Dexter Fong: "New CD" that blessed word
Cease: aura fish?
Phil Austin: cfdud: Hmmmmmmmm......... I wish I knew. There are many problems, not the least of which is the amount of problems
doctec: ah lili should be joining momentarily - she just sent me a msg via AIM
doctec: she's back in her hotel room
Cease: any new fireprojects in the pipe, phil?
Dexter Fong: AIM for they're gizzards boys
||||||||| Catherwood leads LiliLamont inside, makes a note of the time (12:05 AM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Cease: all hail. rain ok
Charles Foster Dudley: Hi lili?
Dr. Headphones: hi lili, kiss kiss ;)
Dexter Fong: Phil: (and this is what really cracked me up) Nick confuses E.T. with Ghandi
Phil Austin: cease: dickering with the new liberal radio network. I just accepted a live performance for us at the Cerritos Perfoming Arts Center in so. cal. for feb of 2005
Bambi: hi Lili!
doctec: the trick is (a) lining up a record label, (b) getting the necessary financing lined up, (c) getting together to write and record the thing
Merlyn: hihi lili
LiliLamont: Hello, gentlemen. So good to be here.
Cease: great news, phil
Rotonoto: oh, new character enter...
LiliLamont: I'm in beautiful downtown Ottawa.
Phil Austin: doc: you got that right. Lil: congrats on employment
doctec: say hello to lili, live and direct from her hotel room in ottawa
Dexter Fong: Hi Lili, How are things in Ontario's Capital City
Dr. Headphones: doc: isn't the current paradigm just to start your own label?
Cease: great article (to me0 in new harpers about what that newtwork should do
doctec: dr. h: but that requires even more money up front...
Bambi: Congrats Lili!
Merlyn: newtwork - the network for small amphibians
LiliLamont: Phil: It took a long time, no thanks to the Bushies, as Molly Ivins would put it.
doctec: and where's that going to come from in this case?
Merlyn: end of HTF, for those of you not listening
Dexter Fong: Newtwork..a plausibly deniable divison of Gingrichworks
doctec: dex: lol
LiliLamont: Dex: Ottawa is actually pretty cool. Loads of restaurants, and lots of jazz,
Rotonoto: Lili checks into the fashionable Chateau Honky in scenic downtown Ottawa and fires up her er- computer
Bambi: yep ... now an old 'yeah baby' type instrumental LOL
Phil Austin: head: our problem is how to write. We don't live in the same city anymore. Brian and doc have been nice enough to set up a chat room for us privately, and so far I've done some experimenting with Peter. Next is David and then Phil, then I'll try to get a
Phil Austin: session going with all four. Might be interesting.
Cease: wow. chomsky on charlie rose right now
doctec: yeah, inter-group communication is certainly a major hurdle that needs to be overcome - and can be overcome once everyone's on board with the idea of working together in the disembodied state we all know as cyberspace
Cease: never thought i'd live to see it. like legalized dope
Dexter Fong: Phil: Don't forget to use lots of emoticons
Dr. Headphones: phil: charge admission for viewers like us :) the old "fly on the wall" thing
Charles Foster Dudley: Cease I talk with CChomsky last week trying to get his Cuba speech.
Dexter Fong: DH: I don't want to see what's behind the curtain
doctec: dex: lol - yeah, emoticons are key
Merlyn: just don't release through Warner Brothers - eric idle said they've been sitting on the Rutles sequel for 2 years
LiliLamont: Doc, that's what I love about you. Your disembodiment.
Dexter Fong: Merl: Trying to hatch a big seller no doubt
doctec: merl: this is why i wish the major labels would just up and die - it sickens me to hear stories like eric's
doctec: don't diss my embodiment please!!!!
Dexter Fong: Dis 'em de body dat I was telli' you about..
Merlyn: all the chats would be archived, so people could visit the web site and see how it was written
LiliLamont: Well, at least they won't be pushing Jacko too hard now.
Bambi: Great to see you all! Can't keep my eyes open any longer ... have a great week!
Phil Austin: a relationship that takes disembodiment into account. wow. Ghost couple
Dexter Fong: The Firesign Theater presents "The Basement Tapes"
Dr. Headphones: whoopi goldberg as guest on next album?
Merlyn: nite bambi
Bambi: Phil always a pleasure to see you :)
Charles Foster Dudley: Tata Bambi!
Dr. Headphones: bye bambi
Phil Austin: nite bambi. she likes it that way.
doctec: merl: we should charge a fee for that peek behind the curtain
Bambi: you too Merlyn!
Dexter Fong: Night Bambi
doctec: or rather fst should charge...
LiliLamont: We have no choice, Phil, until I'm back in CT.
Cease: off you bamb
Bambi: night CFD and Dex
Dexter Fong: Doc: Heh =))
doctec: midgemidgemidgemidgemidgemidgemidgemidgemidge.....
Bambi: thanks Cat! See ya all!
Bambi: night Ken
Cease: re:joyce, rejoyce, we have no choice
||||||||| 12:12 AM -- Bambi left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
Phil Austin: doc/merl. first we have to get all four going at once. It's a tough sell without a paid job to motivate them.
doctec: phil: i hear ya there...
doctec: it's definitely a 'show me the money' kinda thang...
Merlyn: yep; ossman and bergman are advancing on web radio, though
doctec: and i certainly can sympathize -
LiliLamont: Excuse my ignorance, but what ever happened to the NPR gig?
doctec: - unless we can sell them on the idea of just having some phat phun with it
Dexter Fong: Doc! YOu old homey you..knowwhatimean?
doctec: lili: as far as i know, the npr gig is 'in turnaround'
Phil Austin: lil: kind of hard to explain. Too much anger, too much criticism, too little money. We are not entirely innocent and neither are they.
Dexter Fong: You gotta "turnaround" jumpdown, pick a bale sponsors
doctec: the powers that be have not been pushing for more segments, they've turned down the last two or three that were submitted
Charles Foster Dudley: Dex you a greenssleeves fan too?
doctec: bad mistake on their part in my humble opinion - and i'm saying this as a fan of npr
LiliLamont: Given what's going on in London, I would think that there would be a lot of fruit ripe for the picking.
doctec: as well as a fan of firesign
Dexter Fong: CFD: You mean Henry the VIIIth?
Dr. Headphones: lili: rotten fruit unfortunately
Charles Foster Dudley: No Eddie Greensleeves he too had a jump down song.
Merlyn: the anshell media people would be more willing to air FT as-is, I think
Phil Austin: Well, it may be that the new Libnet will be a better bed for us
Cease: sounds promising, phil
LiliLamont: Dr. H: Indeed, but some of the stuff on NPR has been priceless, like the Idiot's Guide to Great Britain from the Daily Mirror.
Dexter Fong: CFD: Don't know Eddie Greensleeves, but I think he gave me a job once..a Sleeve Job if I recall
Cease: as long as anyone is offering you a mike
doctec: yeah phil that would be exceptionally mondo cool. i have to take a brief break to see if lili's cat's are ready to come in for a nosh - brb
LiliLamont: he's such a good kitty sitter. Of course, they love him.
Charles Foster Dudley: Dex a sleeve job. Do you live here or are you just working the driveway?
Dexter Fong: Oh! Roto! Do not fade away. Like tiny autumn blossoms in bottom Koi pool. Not nutritious.
Dr. Headphones: roto and i trying to diagnose possible motherboard/bios problem on AIM
LiliLamont: How... haiku...
Cease: koi in those moss filled, old wood saturated temple situations, were exquistite
Dexter Fong: CFD: I'll be here all week...try the Veal, it's very good
Rotonoto: Roto and dr headphones trying to troubleshoot sick computer
Dr. Headphones: that didn't make sense. there is no problem on AIM, but we're there trying to help his sick computer
Dexter Fong: Cat: Try Koi a la Pepper Spray, Pungent
Rotonoto: smells like MB problems in addition to failed video card (all supply voltages look all right)
Dr. Headphones: i even got my peter norton dos 6 guide out looking for bios beep codes and other arcana
Rotonoto: I used to have two koi in large tank, named them Kirk and McKoi
Dexter Fong: DH: Try the dos equis...it's better
Cease: chomsky on charlie rose. what a trip
LiliLamont: Jesus H. Christ on a motherboard, you guys are worse geeks than Doc and I are.
Dr. Headphones: cat: i'm watching gen. clark on letterman, rose was on here over an hour ago and i didn't watch.
Cease: how goes new gig, lili?
Dexter Fong: Lili: No need to be so humble
Dr. Headphones: lol, lili!
Charles Foster Dudley: Cease he was in the magazine last week.
Cease: all the living ishikawas wish you the best.
Rotonoto: circumstances dictate, one of Roto's components has let the smoke out...
Dexter Fong: Jeeze Cat: Talk about mordant
Dr. Headphones: i have not read much at all of chomsky, but from the people who hate him, i suspect i would like him :)
LiliLamont: Thanks, Cease. The new gig is a major pain, but a money maker. So I have no complaint.
Charles Foster Dudley: Anyone watch the Kennedy fantasy on ABC tonight?
Dexter Fong: DH: You're credentials are only as good as the people who hate you
Dr. Headphones: cfd: i watched lee harvey oswald on pbs "frontline"
Cease: speakikng of mordor, i read most of rings in japan trip, down to last chapters in big battle at mordor gates, i wont be surprised, but i still look forward to it
LiliLamont: I missed it entirely. But I remembered it. Does that count?
Dr. Headphones: only to 10
Dexter Fong: Lili
LiliLamont: Yes, Dex, my sweet.
Dexter Fong: Just finishing Ken's sentence my little Maple Leaf
doctec: back...
Dr. Headphones: lili: wrong response. see LOTR reference above. you should say "my precious"
Dexter Fong: Ken: Butt out!!
Cease: gaul? ummm....
doctec: cats are noshing away happily
LiliLamont: Don't I have to add a lot of ssssssssssssssssssssss?
Dr. Headphones: boston butt?
doctec: yesssssssssssssssssssssssssssss.............
Charles Foster Dudley: It just as well it was a fantasy/sci-fi version of the JFK conspiracy, rather sad actually.
Dr. Headphones: are we having fun yet?
Dexter Fong: I am
LiliLamont: Those kitties, they're such piggies. But much softer.
Dr. Headphones: cfd: oliver stone on prozac?
doctec: yes - and they don't make 'oink oink' sounds
LiliLamont: Maybe on Thorazine?
Charles Foster Dudley: I did right Peter Jennings a rather nasty note though!
LiliLamont: Right?
Dr. Headphones: i remember seeing patients on thorazine when i worked in hospital. not a pretty sight at all
doctec: lots of drooling i imagine...
Dr. Headphones: that's about all....
Merlyn: since lili is here, I figured we didn't need the notice...
Charles Foster Dudley: No some bozo cartoonist with a computer animation program from my back yard out in Milford. I wrote him an interesting letter as well. If either have the balls to write me back I've got next weeks editorial written!
Dr. Headphones: did lili get to see her own notice?
doctec: you're right merl
Cease: penguin returns. right on
doctec: cfd: you're in milford?
Dexter Fong: Lili's banner banned?
LiliLamont: Hey, I took thorazine once for a migraine when I couldn't get the tylenol 3 prescription fast enough from the geriatric pharmacist in OKC. I was semiconcious.
doctec: milford ct?
Charles Foster Dudley: No I'm in Taylor.
LiliLamont: Yes, I did see my banner. Thanks!
Charles Foster Dudley: Micchigan
doctec: cfd: oh...
LiliLamont: semiconscious
Charles Foster Dudley: God I miss my spell cchecker in here. As you can tell I'm a DJ Jim not a writer!
Dexter Fong: Didn't Marvel publish a Thor azine at one time
doctec: i'm house-sitting for lili ... in milford ct
LiliLamont: moribund
Dr. Headphones: ah, i've heard it called "taylortucky". the hillbilly section of the greater metro area. i never saw any evidence when i drove through it
Charles Foster Dudley: What a small world Doc!
Dexter Fong: DH: YOu gotta see it by moonshine
Cease: after all
doctec: cfd: yeah and it gets smaller every day
LiliLamont: Milford?
Cease: is everone watching this interview?
Charles Foster Dudley: Yep Dr. thats what they call it and with good reason! But the land was cheap when we built the house.
Dexter Fong Sings :One bomb makes you bigger, the other one makes them smaller..
Charles Foster Dudley: And the one that Smirky gives doesn't ...
Phil Austin: I see I'm fading and i want to brighten up
LiliLamont: I'm not watching anything. It's all I can do to type, and I need to work on my expense report.
Dexter Fong: But soft! What Red Light breaks thru yonder traffic signal
Cease: you're a light in dark places, phil
LiliLamont: Brighten up, Phil, whatever it takes. I'll join you.
Charles Foster Dudley: You're expensive Lili?
LiliLamont: I'm not cheap, honey.
LiliLamont: you get what you pay for.
Dr. Headphones: lol, lili! you're always good for a laugh
Dexter Fong: Lili: Tell 'am about the rebate
Charles Foster Dudley: I used to have money before I decided to save Amerika from itself. Now I'm so broke I's can't pay attention.... Bummer!
LiliLamont: I hope I have at least that going for me. But ask Doc. He'll tell you more...... maybe.
Dexter Fong: Don't aks..Doc won't tell
Cease: how is your daughter, lili?
Charles Foster Dudley: I'll take the lady's word for it!
doctec: she never told me about any rebate...
doctec frowns
Dexter Fong: I'll take the well healed gentleman in the fur coat
LiliLamont: Cease: she's doing well. I'm going home this weekend, and then I'm coming back for 2 weeks so that we can spend a delayed Thanksgiving together.
Dexter Fong: No other bids?
doctec: the cats have finished their nosh and are begging for attention
Dexter Fong: At ease Doc!
Cease: i'm elated for you, lili
LiliLamont: No! Really? Get out of town! The cats want attention? I'm shocked, shocked!!!
doctec: i am already at ease - i'm on my 2nd vodka tonic!
LiliLamont: Thanks, Cease, things are finally lookinjg up. I hope the trend continues.
Charles Foster Dudley: I have this bowl of Road Apple Red I'm working on myself ...
Dexter Fong: Doc: Was watching some pool tournament where the players had to make trick shots...astonishing
LiliLamont: Dex: Well healed? Is he feelinjg better?
LiliLamont: feeling
Dexter Fong: He was till he got his bill Lili
doctec: yeah, those trick shot guys are really something
Dexter Fong: Doc: But I found out when they stack balls one upon another, the ball have tiny dimples like, else they wouldn't stack
LiliLamont: Jeez, that sounds painful...
doctec: when the cats beg for attention they really want to be let outside - i just accommodated them
Dexter Fong: Timy Dimples painful, or stacking, Lili?
Cease: eye? want a tenshun?
LiliLamont: Good idea. It's pretty mild in Ottawa, so it must be nice in Connecticut.
doctec: perhaps both - maybe neither
Dr. Headphones: tiny dimples was a don ho song wasn't it?
LiliLamont: Stacking and dimples.
Dexter Fong: Gimme two
doctec: actually it's a bit chilly but not terribly so - and they are wearing their fur coats (they have no choice actually)
Charles Foster Dudley: Sorry Dex only one tub per family!
doctec: don prostitute?
LiliLamont: So underneath, they're sweating and need to cool off outside.
Dexter Fong: CFD: As long as it's a hot tub
doctec: need to make a little nosh for myself - brb
Cease: a weird land
Dexter Fong: But I am a wierder in a wierd land
Charles Foster Dudley: Trouble is they won't come up into the hills. Damn this sector R address!
LiliLamont: Where, Cease?
Cease: japan, lili. just got back
Charles Foster Dudley: Domo Arigoto Mr. Roboto!
LiliLamont: That is really weird. Doc and I saw Lost in Translation a few weeks back, and as usual, I annoyed him by saying, "I've been there!" in several scenes. But at least he got an idea of what I went through when I was there.
Cease: i want to see that, lili
Merlyn: any east coast people still up at this hour?
Merlyn: I'm midwest, but I don't have work tomorrow
Cease: ginza is f's old neighbout hoof sop we spent much time there
LiliLamont: Doc and I are both on the east coast. He's in Connecticut, I'm in Ottawa.
Dexter Fong: Me<<<<<-----
Rotonoto: has administered last rites to dead mother board
doctec: yeah, the movie really does a good job of getting across the disembodiment one feels as an american when one is subjected to the japanese experience
LiliLamont: Quick, someone play taps.
doctec: daaaa daa daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.....
LiliLamont: Doc, what are you noshing on?
Dr. Headphones: merlyn: i'm est
doctec: daaaa daa daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.....
Dexter Fong: Oh! Roto! Like tiny siricon palticres, so much sand on the beach
doctec: i'm finishing off the foccacia bread - toasted, buttered
LiliLamont: It's still good?
Dexter Fong: Im getting toasted
Dexter Fong: Like a Boston Scrod
Dr. Headphones: i took short break in there, burned paris hilton video on cd-rw for friends :)
Charles Foster Dudley: I went well beyond toasted an hour ago!
LiliLamont: There are eggs and smoked salmon, if you want an omelette.
Rotonoto: I propose a toast- to real butter (it's like buttah!)
Dexter Fong: DH: Send me several please =))
Phil Austin: Good night all. Lil, congrats. Fun tonite.
doctec: lili: yeah - it's been in an airtight bag since last weekend - had some last night, it was fine (don't forget, house has been cool all this week)
Dr. Headphones: later, phil
Dexter Fong: Night Phil
Merlyn: gnite phil

Charles Foster Dudley: Later Phil keep'em flying!
LiliLamont: Thanks, Phil.. Work good, money better...
Dr. Headphones: dex: if you want, can upload to my website, let you get it from there
Rotonoto: nite Phil...
doctec: regards to oona too!
Dexter Fong: Ken: You know you're getting old..or maybe just smarter...when you just pass that dumbass shit by
Charles Foster Dudley: I better go put my advertising up. Thanks for the chat y'all!
Dr. Headphones: nite, ernie
Dexter Fong: Night CFD
Charles Foster Dudley: Mr. Birdseed grab that copy ...
Dr. Headphones: it's actually not good quality, i won't ever watch it again, but lots of room on drive so i didn't erase it
||||||||| Charles Foster Dudley departs at 12:51 AM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
LiliLamont: I just realized that it is pushing 1 am, or at least it's after 12:30, and my typing is getting worse by the minute. I think I need to call it a knight.
Dexter Fong: Keep your hands off my copy
doctec: yeah me too
Dexter Fong: Night Lili..glad you're back in the land of the employed =)
Merlyn: looks like phil is going to get reaped, he isn't refreshing any more
Dr. Headphones: s'long, lili
Dexter Fong: He said his goodbyes Merl
Rotonoto: nite lili, way to go!
doctec: have to get up extra early so can get into work early and leave early to pick lili up at the airport
Merlyn: yep, but he usually uses the exit button
LiliLamont: You have no idea how glad I am... Or maybe you do. good night, gentlemen. As usual, it was a pleasure.
Dexter Fong: Doc: Will you have on a dark suit and a placard with her name on it?
doctec: you all take care - lili, see you tomorrow evening - we'll dine at mckenzie's - looking forward to seeing your smiling face again!
LiliLamont: Good night, Doc, honey. See you tomorrow night.
Merlyn: bye doc
doctec: dex: mmmmmmmmaybe....
||||||||| Catherwood says "12:53 AM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs LiliLamont by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
doctec: nytol (zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.....)
||||||||| "Hey doctec!" ... doctec turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 12:53 AM, I don't have to go yet!"...
Merlyn: bye all
Rotonoto: they are dropping like files...
Dr. Headphones: rat-tailed file or bastard file?
Dexter Fong: Hey ! They left together..think something's going on there?
Rotonoto: oh, cross cut maybe
||||||||| Merlyn runs out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's Merlyn?! It's 12:54 AM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
Rotonoto: bastard? no give me one of them sonofabitches over there...
Dexter Fong: Friends, for a "True Cross" cut, make it Gethsamane Cutlery
Dr. Headphones: is the party over for tonight? maybe i should start on the beer now. didn't have enough to go around when many people here
Rotonoto: the edge is guaranteed for the life of the knife!
Dexter Fong: Ken: 'sokay, I've got vodka
Dr. Headphones: good deal, dex, i only have one anyway, and no one likes to drink after me :)
Dexter Fong: so to cut down on that strife with the wife, get a "True Cross" cut blad
Dexter Fong: blade
Dr. Headphones: i got the templar version of it, love it
Dexter Fong: Simon says...
Dr. Headphones: it's been a long time since i've been up for the end of the chat
Dexter Fong: Ken: I know your end is always up
Dexter Fong: Speechless huh?
Dexter Fong: Or maybe it's just my broadband
Rotonoto: oh, he's probably distracted by something
Dr. Headphones: ah, i was retrieving pack of cigarettes from other room, missed out on the quick comeback
Dexter Fong: Dixiee Chicks?
Dexter Fong: Several Ken
Rotonoto: i just wasted many of his cpu cycles on my dead MB
Dr. Headphones: my cycles have two wheels
Dexter Fong: Roto: not wasted, merely cycling onward
Dr. Headphones: that was the non sequitur of the night, sponsored by general motors
Dexter Fong: Lancing thru outer space with strong arms
Dexter Fong: a quick smile
||||||||| It's 1:00 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Phil Austin - dead from the yaws
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Dexter Fong: ...and a devil may care look in his codpiece
Dr. Headphones: oh no, the yaws got him!
Dexter Fong: What's Yaws?
Rotonoto: ah yes, and his brother general confusion is running the war...
Dr. Headphones: seriously, dex, you want me to post that video for you to d/l?
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 1 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Dr. Headphones: can have it up in a jiffy
Dexter Fong: Ken: Please......no!!!!!! =)))
Dr. Headphones: ok, thought i'd make sure
Dr. Headphones: dave, you want it?
Rotonoto: no! not the video! oh the humanity!
Rotonoto: huh? want a video?
Dexter Fong: But thank you..BTW, got any Michael Jackson stuff (nudge, nudge)
Dr. Headphones: paris hilton sex video. 4 megs of sepia madness
Dr. Headphones: dex: only on lp (not mine, but in my possession) and i'd have to digitize it for you
Dexter Fong: Ken: Sepia...C3P0's evil half sister
Dr. Headphones: one of the heiresses of the hilton hotel family
Rotonoto: I don't think my computer has the s/w to view videos (you mean .avi?)
Dexter Fong: Roto: I never heard what happened after you tower went down
Dr. Headphones: i think it's .wmv, media player does it
Rotonoto: oh, took 2 months to get insurance to settle, did get check finally
Dexter Fong: And any transmitting ability?
Rotonoto: it's still a crumpled mess in back yard, will now start cleanup with a friend next week
Dr. Headphones: worth 20 cents a pound at scrap yard?
Rotonoto: I still have a smaller 40ft tower with antenna on it still working
