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 February 05, 2004 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| 8:02 PM: Dad jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past hour!"
Dad: Right, son. Now I am the people. And The People -- US -- wants me to tell them -- It -- just what you're doing with your hands in Number 35729 comma Short comma One Pair Blue Gym comma W/slash Protector, worn by Barbara Bobo!
||||||||| "Hey Dad!" ... Dad turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 8:02 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, February 05, 2004 - 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 strides up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'Merlyn LeRoy', just granted probation at 9:04 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
||||||||| The Yämamøto iterations enters at 9:08 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and runs off to the Haberdashery Barn.
||||||||| "9:08 PM? 9:08 PM!!" says Catherwood, "ah,clem should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as ah,clem enters and sits on the couch.
ah,clem: hello
The Yämamøto iterations: Come Back w/that goat you pug!

The Yämamøto iterations: from the neck up, there's always...head
||||||||| Catherwood leads cease inside, makes a note of the time (9:15 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Merlyn LeRoy: 'ello

||||||||| The Yämamøto iterations departs at 9:16 PM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Dr. Headphones close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 9:16 PM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the Aviary.
||||||||| The Yämamøto iterations enters at 9:16 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and runs off to the Haberdashery Barn.

Dr. Headphones: cat: how are you guise currently in the waiting room? :)
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'klokwkdog-0x9aed', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:18 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Dr. Headphones: hello, ox-9aed ;)

Dr. Headphones: aw, yam, go ahead, we're used to rude remarks

The Yämamøto iterations: Crapple on top of a reasonably functional OS
||||||||| Bone-E-Boi enters at 9:24 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and runs off to the Haberdashery Barn.

Bone-E-Boi: Art of the Insane.
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "9:30 PM and late as usual, it's Bambi, just back from Billville."
Bambi: Hi!

Dr. Headphones: llan: i've read 3.5 of them. never restarted the 4th and finished it
Bambi: no, haven't read them ..
Bambi: who's the author?
llanwydd: I don't care much for Stephen King but I like the Dark Tower
The Yämamøto iterations: ska/punk/anarchist thingy
Bambi: oh, haven't read that series yet
Bambi: have many of Kings earlier works here in the library...read them all at least once :)
Dr. Headphones: bambi: i stopped reading after the early period except for selected works like "green mile" and "tower"
Bambi: some are very strange but I enjoy most of the plots and his writing style.
Bone-E-Boi: So what I'm wonder is... Does anyone know mrmuckle's e-mail address/
llanwydd: There are a couple I like: Four Past Midnight and The Dead Zone
Bone-E-Boi: wondering
Bambi: hi Bone
The Yämamøto iterations: you should be able to get thru via SITO if he has anything else there
Bone-E-Boi: mrmuckle's e-mail address... do you know it, Bamb?
Bambi: yes, good ones llanwydd
Dr. Headphones: bone: sorry, can't help you there. if only lew were still around, he might have added himself to the CFD
Merlyn LeRoy: Augh! I've turned gray!

Bone-E-Boi: If he couldn't make it here, he'll never make it at SITO.
Dr. Headphones: bone: i'm talking about lew/tinydrtim, who is now sadly departed. he had a web page for fireheads to sign up with their addresses, etc.
The Yämamøto iterations: http://www.sito.org
Bambi: don't think we could have done anything to piss him off, could we?
The Yämamøto iterations: I have some things there, and I randomly post stuff
llanwydd: Screaming in Ten Octaves
Bone-E-Boi: SITO is OTIS spelled backwards. What does OTIS mean? Nothing. So discussing SITO is on-topic here.
Dr. Headphones: hell, bambi, i can't piss off people on purpose, i know i don't accidentally
The Yämamøto iterations: Otis is drunk
The Yämamøto iterations: o is henry earl

||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Bone-E-Boi: Wait a minute. mrmuckle was here a couple of weeks ago. He must have acquired Lew's moniker.
Dr. Headphones: yes, merl, but as i recall, muckle showed up after the RIP, so he couldn't be there
Bambi: that chinese food must be a killer LOL
The Yämamøto iterations: Henry Earl: http://earlhenry.messedup.net/
Merlyn LeRoy: Looks like Aug 17, 2002 is the last real version
Bone-E-Boi: As I recall, this mrmuckle is a jazz muscian of some note (pun intended) and visually impaired.
Merlyn LeRoy: are people wondering if mrmuckle will return?
Bone-E-Boi: a jazz musician of some notes?
Bone-E-Boi: Merlyn, I'm trying to obtain his e-mail address to notify him that I've uploaded repsonses to his images at SITO Panic.
Dr. Headphones: he only plays the white keys?
klokwkdog-0x9aed: many of them can't afford enough notes to play well, B-e-B
llanwydd: make it a C note
Merlyn LeRoy: The last time mrmuckle was at the chat was Oct 16, 2003
klokwkdog-0x9aed: perhaps he's on tour
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'Elayne', just granted probation at 9:43 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
klokwkdog-0x9aed: hey, E!
Dr. Headphones: hey e

Elayne: Robin's in the other room watching Some Like It Hot.

Elayne: I kept thinking, "well, maybe in Massachusetts..."
The Yämamøto iterations: n the pot 9 days old
Bone-E-Boi: Merlyn, I'm off to czech out the October cheese logs.
Elayne: "...but not if Bush has his way..."
Merlyn LeRoy: his stuff, BEB?
Bone-E-Boi: It's an interesting approach, but it's not you, right?
Bone-E-Boi: That's my work layered over the work of mrmuckle.
llanwydd: I don't even remember muckle
Bone-E-Boi: I remember muckle.
llanwydd: bet he doesn't remember me
Dr. Headphones: who had pot 9 days old? it might still be green then
klokwkdog-0x9aed: Bush wants to send men to mars; i think he should go first
Bone-E-Boi: Mr Muckle is a character in a W.C. Fields movie. Perhaps the most anti-PC character in cinematic history.
Bone-E-Boi: Of course, back in Fields day, they didn't call it PC.
Dr. Headphones: klok: make cheney co-pilot
The Yämamøto iterations: Klok: What and piss off the Martians?
Merlyn LeRoy: "Put it down, Mr. Muckle honey!"
klokwkdog-0x9aed: make cheney the heat shield
llanwydd: even more un-PC than Stepin Fetchitt?
klokwkdog-0x9aed: the martians are all inside, Yam. they won't mind
Bone-E-Boi: The movie is It's a Gift. Not my favorite, but a good one.
The Yämamøto iterations: Well sending lower simians into space has plenty of precedents
Dr. Headphones: i thought the martians were invisible
Bone-E-Boi: "Listen to the man." That's what they called PC in Fields day.
Dr. Headphones: there's a character named yamamoto on csi right now
klokwkdog-0x9aed: under the flag of the greenback dollar...
The Yämamøto iterations: They are, have you ever seen one?
klokwkdog-0x9aed fires up the hdtv
The Yämamøto iterations: Ken: I'm suing
Dr. Headphones: except for michael valentine smith, of course
llanwydd: Isn't "It's a Gift" the one where he takes his family to Californian to live on a plantation or something?
Bone-E-Boi: I must flee. Desperately seeking mrmuckle.
ah,clem: anyone who talks about "political crrectnees" should be forced to listen to lenny bruce, george carlin and richard prior.
klokwkdog-0x9aed: nite BeB
llanwydd: I meant California
Bone-E-Boi: and W.C. Fields.
Dr. Headphones: bone: i could be wrong, and you might have to read a bunch of old logs to prove or disprove this, but i think one of the 4 or 5 was conversing with muckle at one time as if he knew him personally
Bone-E-Boi: and the Marx Brothers.
Bone-E-Boi: "Can't you see I'm trying to say I love you."
Elayne: Apparently some of the "lesser" Marx Bros. movies are close to being released on DVD.
ah,clem: right, Grocho too
Merlyn LeRoy: well, mrmuckle never mentioned his email address in the main chat log, I just checked all the ones
Bone-E-Boi: Margaret Dumont forever.
Merlyn LeRoy: the non-Paramount Marx movies, except for Love happy (and Story of Mankind)
Bone-E-Boi: Thanks for your help, Merlyn. Maybe he'll return. Some day.
The Yämamøto iterations: I'm in love w/Margret Dumont: What a Dame! Face like an old TeeVee
llanwydd: Bone E, that was a quote from "The Coconuts" wasn't it?
Dr. Headphones: yam: what you mean? 525 horizontal lines?
klokwkdog-0x9aed: times were hard. she got paid
Merlyn LeRoy: Here's "Graucho's" [sic] FBI file: http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/groucho1.html
The Yämamøto iterations: Round and all glowy
Merlyn LeRoy: You think intelligence gathering is bad now, back then they couldn't spell his name right
||||||||| At 9:54 PM, Bone-E-Boi vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
The Yämamøto iterations: GRAUCHO
The Yämamøto iterations: bwhahahahaha
Bambi: night Bone
llanwydd: that's gaucho with an R
Dr. Headphones: don't cry for me, argentina
llanwydd: that was a mysterious disappearance

Bambi: They were humorous ... actors .. and funny as hell ... despite their political affiliations LOL
The Yämamøto iterations: And the one wi/a hot temper, Zippo
Dr. Headphones: i'm not sure i've ever watched an entire marx bros. movie. i have seen many "you bet your life" episodes
Merlyn LeRoy: and adolph marx, the weirdest real comedian name of Harpo

Merlyn LeRoy: I've got the new DVD of YBYL, but I haven't watched it yet.
Dr. Headphones: holy batshit, robin!

The Yämamøto iterations: He had a really Sh*tty sens of humor
Merlyn LeRoy: including "Humor Risk"?

Elayne: I've never heard of "Humor Risk."
Elayne: Bath, towel, border...
Merlyn LeRoy: Have you seen "The Incredible Jewel Robbery"?
Dr. Headphones: my latest dvd acquisitions are all live concerts of "yes"
Elayne: Oh no, wait, that's different words...
ah,clem: nd tits doesn't evn belong on the list.
Bambi: I have probably seen just about all the Marx Brothers movies ... some many times ... always good :)
Elayne: It's been way too long since I've seen a Marx Brox. movie. They never seem to play 'em on TV any more.
Merlyn LeRoy: "Humor Risk" was a silent made near New York, without their usual characters as done on Broadway. They hated the result so much they destroyed all prints.
llanwydd: no I've never seen Humour Risk and neither has anybody else
Elayne: Cool, Merlyn, I didn't know that.
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Merlyn LeRoy: "The Incredible Jewel Robbery" was mostly Harpo, with a lot of Chico and Groucho came in at the end, so it barely qualifies. it was a TV special
Dr. Headphones: catherwood has found the missing 7 minutes
Bambi: Teller (from Penn and Teller) reminds me of Harpo
The Yämamøto iterations: E: Graucho is not PC anymore
Merlyn LeRoy: There's also some test footage for a TV series with all 3 for "Deputy Seraph"
Dr. Headphones: frontline on pbs in a few minutes is about pornography ;)
Merlyn LeRoy: They play angels.
Merlyn LeRoy: full-frontal frontline
Dr. Headphones: deputy seraph was the sequel to assistant cherubim
The Yämamøto iterations: Janet Jackson on?

Dr. Headphones: yam: i doubt it, i think this is a repeat
Bambi: k
||||||||| Woody One enters at 10:03 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and runs off to the Haberdashery Barn.
Elayne: I should think "Graucho" wouldn't be very PC... now Groucho, on the other hand...
Bambi: hi Woody
Woody One: Yello
The Yämamøto iterations: oi

Dr. Headphones: hey woody
Woody One: Hey folks.

Merlyn LeRoy: anywho, you can see the footage for "Deputy Seraph" at http://www.whyaduck.com/realaudio/video.htm
Bambi: I'm sittin' in the waiting room .... waiting ... what am I waiting for, BTW?
The Yämamøto iterations: "Put it between two slices of bread and EAT IT!"

Bambi: ok, I'll bite ... what's Godot?
Dr. Headphones: it doesn't execute it but it does lock it up and throw away the key
Elayne: Great link Merlyn, thanks!

Woody One: Always onions, no matter who I'm around.
Elayne: The penguin thing was probably me, Woody.
Elayne: There are versions around of the Yeti-penguin thing where you can hit it over 4000 feet.
Woody One: Funny. I did it a few times.
Elayne: Yeah, it's spreading 'round the 'net pretty quickly.
Dr. Headphones: over 4000 feet? that's better than a millipede
Bambi: Windows Media Player = WiMP
Bambi: LOL
The Yämamøto iterations: y

Dr. Headphones: ah yes, in a previous incarnation :) i've returned, bigger, better, and badder
Bambi: would that be Ken with his new year's party hat ^
Woody One: He said they'd be in the audience. I thought he was just hotdoggin' me.

Merlyn LeRoy: no woody, it isn't something Firesign came up with
Dr. Headphones: woody: i think they don't hotdog. maybe polish sausage

Dr. Headphones: woody: of the moderate (not rabid) variety here
Bambi: but this water was very yellow
stephnfosterkane: where, woody?
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Bubba's Breast', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 10:35 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Dr. Headphones: it's janet!

Bubba's Breast: Hey, all.
The Yämamøto iterations: dammit janet!

The Yämamøto iterations: ow
Bambi: hey, just one breast ... just like janet LOL

Dr. Headphones: interesting, woody, never saw it
stephnfosterkane: hmmm; scene setting, eh?
stephnfosterkane: kind of like the first panels of Argon Zark
Woody One: You know about the show about nothing? Seinfeld's show within the show.
stephnfosterkane: not really; I watch "Seinfeld", but it's not there. i zone out
Dr. Headphones: i have seen it, but apparently didn't watch closely enough
Woody One: There's about 5 episodes related.
Bubba's Breast puts on a pastie, just in case of a wardrobe malfunction.
stephnfosterkane: i can't, not for >3-4 minutes. it slips away, like putting your finger on a wet watermelon seed. can't concentrate enough
Dr. Headphones: nice analogy, sfk
stephnfosterkane: FST, I lock on tight and ride the roller coaster

Dr. Headphones: bambi: from sumatra?
Woody One: See ya Bambi. Chris is great.
Dr. Headphones: enjoy it
Bambi: naw, actually it is the momma rat in his house ... battle of wits between man and rat
stephnfosterkane: he was steamed, slammed down a phone and said "Gawd-dammed Yankees. It's like talking to worms in a bait bucket!"
Bambi: man wins but not till he has virtually lost his mind
Dr. Headphones: i know people like that (worms in bucket)
Bambi: night klok
stephnfosterkane: sounds like one of Walken's better performances ;-)
Bambi: thanks Woody :)
Woody One: I sub-teach. Did an impersonation of Walken for the class for trivia. One guy got it.
Bambi: yes enjoy Chris very much
Dr. Headphones: i hear you need to be a sub-genius to sub-teach
Bambi: I would have gotten it :)
Bambi: see ya all :)
Woody One: LOL
||||||||| At 10:46 PM, Bambi runs out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
Bubba's Breast: Hey mr. ice cream man, make a scoop for me. I'm not freezing and there is no place I'm goin to.

Dr. Headphones: no one but us lizzards
Bubba's Breast: nobody but us chickens... beat me to it.
Merlyn LeRoy: blizzards?

Bubba's Breast: Hey, lizzard, lizzard, lizzard....
llanwydd: nice to be hanging out with chickens and lizards
Woody One: I gave a girl I used to date some peanut brittle from the fridge. She said it tasted like bananas. I didn't tell her there was a rotten banana in there.

||||||||| ah,clem - dead from The Plague
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Dr. Headphones: black with orange spots is my fashion ideal
llanwydd: I hope you are all tolerant of homo sapiens
Dr. Headphones: i don't think there's anything rotten in my freezer, but i'll buy a box of sodium bicarbonate and place in there
llanwydd: better yet clean and defrost it
Woody One: I was never home, and the naner got away from me. So did the brittle.
Dr. Headphones: yes, i will do that first. doesn't need defrosting, but could stand to be emptied and wiped out
stephnfosterkane: come back Woody Guthrie, come back to us now...Tear your eyes from paradise And rise again some how

stephnfosterkane: i must pumpkin in 11 min.
Dr. Headphones: open in new tab now
stephnfosterkane: guess Dex is is Fla and Tom is playing with his balls again
llanwydd: just don't squash
Dr. Headphones: acorn squash is good stuff
Dr. Headphones: as is butternut. had 1/2 of one of those other night
Dr. Headphones: and other half the next night
Dr. Headphones: lots of fiber in my diet, no lower digestive problems here :)
stephnfosterkane: he gets into the DVD soundtrack early, from 30 years back, then switches to a 1995 benefit with Earle, Van Zandt, etc. And then fills with more Earle; "Christmas in Washington", if that ain't Emmylou doing backup, whoever it is: close as I need!
llanwydd: you know what you do with hubbard squash. Clean out the seeds and fill it with Jimmy Dean sausage
Dr. Headphones: as long as it's not l. ron hubbard!
stephnfosterkane: I can get off on that
llanwydd: then bake it for a long time
Dr. Headphones: sfk: i like emmylou
Dr. Headphones: llan: i usually fill with butter and brown sugar, bake until very tender
stephnfosterkane: oh, this'll bring tears to your eyes and she's not even in there except backing
Dr. Headphones: if it's good, i may record it
stephnfosterkane: about 1:30-something in; lyrics - http://www.cowboylyrics.com/tabs/earle-steve/christmas-in-washington-6386.html
Dr. Headphones: what format?
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
stephnfosterkane: WMA only
stephnfosterkane: you see it, right ("Complete Jan 27, 2004 show...") link?
Dr. Headphones: wow, some subversive lyrics!
Dr. Headphones: ok, wma at very bottom. i saw audio and video links, could be many things
stephnfosterkane: there's two versions of "Poncho and Lefty", two of "Mercenary song"...
Dr. Headphones: wma is easy to grab unless it's hidden in javascript
stephnfosterkane: Ken - the first link in blue on http://www.wdwagoner.com/WPKN-FM/
Dr. Headphones: it's right there out in the open :)
Dr. Headphones: it won't let me right click and "save as". well, will fire up the audio program and record off the sound card
stephnfosterkane: Tecumseh Valley --so much stuff. And on the 2nd "Mercenary Song", he goes into this riff about working at Sirocco's Pizza when he wrote it and...well, it's ROFL
llanwydd: technically there is a federal law against subversive lyrics. I hate to say it
llanwydd: depending on how subversive it could qualify as sedition
Merlyn LeRoy: what about obversive lyrics?
stephnfosterkane: So come back Emma Goldman/Rise up old Joe Hill/The barracades are going up/They cannot break our will
llanwydd: same as obtuse lyrics
stephnfosterkane: that's not subversive; that's patriotic!
stephnfosterkane: just as patriotic as the Port Huron Statement...
Dr. Headphones: emma was quite the rabble rouser. i get a daily anarchist email and she's in it at least once a week
stephnfosterkane: I hate to break it to you like this, Ken -- she's been gone awhile
llanwydd: Emma Goldman didn't say anything new. She just said it differently
Dr. Headphones: oh yeah, i know that. notice i put "was" in that statement
stephnfosterkane: oh
Dr. Headphones: i should have said her quotes and deeds are related in it
Dr. Headphones: it's one of those "this day in history" deals, but from a very different viewpoint
stephnfosterkane: but this is just freaking wonderful set. radio where someone gets a DVD, thinks, "This is nice" and plays it on-air.
Dr. Headphones: sfk: you know how long that thing is? i have to select a length for recording before i start
stephnfosterkane: give it 2:10 -- it's a 2-hour set
Dr. Headphones: i'm going to do 3, give me time to pause and go to bathroom if i need to, can edit later easily
stephnfosterkane: Walter is on some Monday nights from midnight - 2AM.
Dr. Headphones: sure glad i'm not outside tonight. snow/sleet/freezing rain here
stephnfosterkane: Yeah, I had the WMA transfer drop out for 10, 20 sec. at one point but should be quieter now it's later at night.

||||||||| llanwydd - dead from the common cold
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| 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 11:47 PM.
Rotonoto: As the man said at the Restaurant at the Edge of the Universe, "How are we for time?>>>"
Rotonoto: How was the Japanese Restaurant at the Edge of Town, Cat?
||||||||| 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..
Rotonoto: Wow! Thanks, Merlyn. The Wayback Machine is a lot of fun. Looking at old Dr. Tim and my old web page
Rotonoto: ..
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 1 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Rotonoto: Several hunderd thousand of us helped Kend^ enter the witless, er, witness protection program...
Rotonoto: He is at an undisclosed location, but sends some Dr. Headphones dude to check up on us...
Rotonoto: I can't believe I skimmed the whole firelog- transcript indicates the crew is basically not insane...
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 2 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Rotonoto: ..
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 3 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Rotonoto: Rotonoto has jumped into the hole...fallen into the hole...fresh air and breakfast?
||||||||| Rotonoto is defenestrated just as the clock strikes 3:17 AM.
||||||||| Catherwood enters, and announces to all and sundry "It's 4:32 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."
