Dr. Headphones: i have a hyperthreaded shirt
Blue Suede Yämamøto: Did you do the noble thing: join the guard and not show up
Phuck Fonics: Such languageeee!
LiliLamont: I'll bet it itches like a bitch.
Bubba's Brain: as long as it's not hyperlinked
LiliLamont: Well, I've always been proud of my vocabulary and my skill with language structure.
Phuck Fonics: Where do you pick up such phuckin' talk from, I just never heard such speakin'.
Dr. Headphones: ah so, mr. yamamoto :)

Blue Suede Yämamøto: The stranger the better I say
Hemlock Stones: Make a note of that Watson!

Dr. Headphones: i made a mass invitation on a group of about 300 people to join our chat, not sure if any of the new faces here are them or not. if so, hello, if not, hello anyway
Blue Suede Yämamøto: Oh BTW guise: Why does everybody hate Clear Channel?
LiliLamont: No, Bob, he is not. With any luck, the rest of the country will come to that realization.
Dr. Headphones: hi klok
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: is that like the mass invitation Mel Gibson gave out?
Dr. Headphones: yam: because they are a stinkin' corporate monopoly that cares only about money
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: howdy everyone
LiliLamont: Klok! sweetie! lover! love chunks! How the hell are you?
Dr. Headphones: klok: no, mel is catholic and i'm not
LiliLamont: I don't think I would want to go to Mass with Mel Gibson. I'm a recovering Catholic, and he is definitely way out there.
ah,clem: anyone here on skybird, ?
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: hmm. have i been having one of my spells again? if so, apologies lili. those violin movies do it every time
LiliLamont: I am.
Merlyn LeRoy: I am
Dr. Headphones: i've been to two masses in my life. one was a folk christmas mass and another was a wedding mass. i made fool of myself both times by not kneeling or speaking at the correct times
Merlyn LeRoy: fudd's law
ah,clem: I really love this album
Blue Suede Yämamøto: Ken: NO! It's because the Democrats hate Rus Limbaugh

Blue Suede Yämamøto: Rush even

stephnfosterkane-o'klok: i die every night...
Phuck Fonics: Well, not Catholic but catholic - if I'ze remember the definition correctly.
Bob Hind: There's a disturbing mass in my bathtub drain. I think it's alive.
Dr. Headphones: big C is church of rome, small c is universal. right?
Dr. Headphones: bob: throw some wine and bread crumbs on it, then it's holy
Phuck Fonics: yep
LiliLamont: Correctomundo, Sahib.
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: what is so funny -- i sent the link to Ken -- is that all the masses RUSH'ing to Mel's Jesus Chainsaw Massacre are devout Protestants
Bubba's Brain: Must be holy water in your bathtub if there's a mass in your drain.
Phuck Fonics: the livin' mass in the sink?
Dr. Headphones: domino, domino, domino, you're all pizzas now
Phuck Fonics: sounds like an Oral Robert's show
Blue Suede Yämamøto: I was gonna say whack it w/a stick but not if it's holy
LiliLamont: Does it resemble a pod person?
Merlyn LeRoy: will that make me sing flat?
Bob Hind: It's throbbing. I think it has eyes.
Bubba's Brain: domino nabisco
LiliLamont: Depends. Are you lying down?
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: and these are the ones who in the 1500s got RID of all the icons, the passion plays, the stained glass windows with images on them (sound like Taliban to anyone else?)

stephnfosterkane-o'klok: Yankee Go Home
Bob Hind: Perhaps.
LiliLamont: I read the Times review (with gory picture) by A.O. Scott. I have no desire to see it. Did you read about the woman who had a heart attack during the film and died?
Dr. Headphones: nader go home
Phuck Fonics: Hey, how about that Coward Sterno gettin' (slightly) cancellllled.
Merlyn LeRoy: filmed in SCREAM-O-RAMA
Bubba's Brain: nadir?
Dr. Headphones: yeah, lili, but she's sitting on the right hand of god now. and boy is he pissed--wants her to move
LiliLamont: What the hell is Nader thinking?
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Seej into the room, accepts a grimy quarter as a gratuity, mumbles something about 9:26 PM, then departs.

Phuck Fonics: Phong
Dexter Fong: Ah Lili, pearl of the Valley
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: why can't you flirt with us when Doc is here?
LiliLamont: Klok! What a great idea! I think I'll do the same.
LiliLamont: Because he hogs the keyboard.
Dexter Fong: Jeeze where do I start with greetings and salutation
Phuck Fonics: Is Doc on Holiday. (old west humor)
stephnfosterkane-o'klok anguishes - flirt or refill??
Dexter Fong: Happy belated to Klok and Bambi (see I *do* read the log)
Dr. Headphones: dex: make it a navajo blanket greeting
LiliLamont: Nope. He's just slow to appear. Typical.

Coalin Trowel: One swipe of his blade and The Reeper moves on ...
Dexter Fong: It's a trend
stephnfosterkane-o'klok does mail search for "Muckle"
mrmuckle: trendy place
Dexter Fong: Good thinking klok
Dr. Headphones: it's contagious. everyone stop breathing
Dexter Fong: Stop breeding?
Bubba's Brain: you may be a king or a lowly street sweeper, but sooner or later, you dance with the reaper....
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: Breeding?

Dr. Headphones: hell, i can't dance if you don't step on my toes
Dexter Fong: Dance on his toes, that's my next step
Bambi: we now have two cockatiels ... a male (our Yoda) and now a female (Paddy, short for Padowan meaning apprentice on Star Wars) ... very nice disposition too
Phuck Fonics: Nair Lee a man is still alive
Phuck Fonics: and Mrs. Lee
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Rotonoto into the room, accepts a grimy quarter as a gratuity, mumbles something about 9:53 PM, then departs.
Dexter Fong: Bambi, I'd like a cocktail please...A Tom Collins I think
Dr. Headphones: bambi: do they like each other?
Dr. Headphones: ROTO! so happy you here
Bambi: hey RotoDave :)
Coalin Trowel: Howdy Roto!

Rotonoto: Is this thing on? (tap tap tap) Thank you senator...
Dexter Fong: Oh Roto, So long...You've been gone

stephnfosterkane-o'klok: hey, roto! hail roto. gotta be woodwork night...
Dr. Headphones: bambi: did you hear the slightly off color joke about the bird the priest owned and the one the drunkard owned?

Dexter Fong: a
Bambi: Yoda is 7 yrs old and Paddy is about 5 yrs old ... both have been the only bird in their family ... so could take some time ... Yoda's nose is out of joint at the moment.
Dexter Fong: Put a splint on it
Bambi: no I don't think I heard that one Ken
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: I didn't know birds had nozes
ah,clem: Paddy was calljng to me to let her out, I ignored that, now they are talking.
mrmuckle: me too either
Bambi: yeah, I hear them up here :)
Rotonoto: woodwork? as in "...crawled outa the woodwork"?
Dr. Headphones: ok, the drunkard's bird could only curse. the priest's bird could only pray and say the rosary.
Dexter Fong: Beak ind to or feathered friends
Bambi: actually I guess it would be beak out of joint ... but they are talking to each other now :)
Dr. Headphones: the cursing bird was put with the praying bird, who then dropped his beads, said, "my prayers have been answered. let's get it on, honey"
Rotonoto: "...crawled outs the woodwork wearing ladies shoes..."
Bambi: LOL
Rotonoto: "...repeated everything anybody said..."
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: Ed Wood?
mrmuckle: good un
Dexter Fong: "Ladies Shoes, by Ken of Michigan
Phuck Fonics: Jail Bait - directed by Ed Wood
Dr. Headphones: i do NOT have ladies shoes. i'm wearing my lovely blue terrycloth house slippers at the moment though
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: starting to fade. hgjfdghfjfjd
mrmuckle: Ed would WHAT?
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: Fish or Jail Bait, I say
Dr. Headphones: holy, llanwydd, it's a miracle, he's back from the nearly dead
Dexter Fong: DH: Don' lie to me baby...I seen those pitures, man
Phuck Fonics: bare feet, here
Rotonoto: (Roto hungrily devours greasy pieces of fried chicken and gradually comes "back to life")
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: the freshly dead

Phuck Fonics: Ed Wood directed and co-wrote "Jail Bait."
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: Cant afford no shoes

Dexter Fong: Just cuase you don' wear 'em on your feet
ah,clem: Yoda s very confused.
Phuck Fonics: Steve Reeves first film
||||||||| Outside, the 9:59 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving Dave coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Phuck Fonics: bare foot, here, too
Dr. Headphones: somehow my cats reversed them last night. when i got up, i ended up putting them on wrong feet, felt funny, got to bottom of stairs and looked, realized a cruel trick had been played on me
Dexter Fong: WB Dave
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: ya
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: ja
Dave: uhoh
Dexter Fong: Ken: Feline kinda foolish were you?
Dr. Headphones: roto: bird flu in a bucket?
Coalin Trowel: Dave Here!....again.
Dave: hold on, gonna put a ! after my name so I can tell the difference
Phuck Fonics -) fe line
||||||||| Dave departs at 10:00 PM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
Dr. Headphones: lol, dex!
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: nite dave
Rotonoto: count your blessings ken- if they were really mad at you, they would have left presents in your shoes
||||||||| 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 Dave! disembarks at 10:00 PM.
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Dave!: done!
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: nite dave
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: Dave!
Dr. Headphones: dave!!!
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: dex, ken, I can't find the mrmuckle thing. where IS mrmuckle, anyhoo
Dexter Fong: lol, Klok is our offical greeter
Dr. Headphones: yes, roto, that's been done before. i did not like that surprise at all
Dexter Fong: Klok: He's marked as away
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: oh, wrong way. i was off searching the email mine
Elayne: Well, that was a lot of fun. Highly recommended. AbFab takes some getting used to, but I'm starting to get into it a bit more.
Dr. Headphones: awol?
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: Catherwood still has my hat and goat
Phuck Fonics: http://www.ic-musicmedia.com/TOR
Dr. Headphones: you'll never get MY goat!
Dexter Fong: Was it Freq Man who was looking for him..damned if I can remember
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: but he showed up for his physical!
Elayne: Sir Elton held his own, as it were.
Phuck Fonics: now you can settle the bet
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: You mine yr email? Didja find a heart of gold?
Rotonoto: I have a friend whose siamese loves the smell of my shoes, wears one shoe over his head and rolls around on his back contentedly
Coalin Trowel: Now, hold it over here!
Phuck Fonics: ttfn
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "10:03 PM and late as usual, it's Bunnyboy, just back from Billville."
Bob Hind: Glad to.
Rotonoto: now hold it up to the light!
Bunnyboy: lo dere
stephnfosterkane-o'klok loves Giant Rat...
Elayne turns on the Skybird...
Dexter Fong: Hey Bb
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: hi bb
Elayne: Ah, very nice! Thanks again for doing this, clem.
Bunnyboy: Big room! Old school preachin' tonite!
Elayne: Hello Bunnyboy!
Dr. Headphones: hi, bun
ah,clem: one of my favourites, obviously.
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: I can't get the skyboid to work
Dexter Fong: Oyster
Bunnyboy: Elayne: Emerald City Comicon on Sunday, Seahawks Stadium.
Dexter Fong: Yam: YOu still on dial-up
Elayne: I need to get Robin to listen to this one more.
ah,clem: always a pleasure, Elayne
Elayne: Oh yes, Bunnyboy, look for Laura Gjovaag!
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: Ya
||||||||| "10:05 PM? 10:05 PM!!" says Catherwood, "doctec should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as doctec enters and sits on the couch.
Dexter Fong: Joe Beets
Dr. Headphones: clem is a nice guy, even if others don't agree ;)
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: Just dropped $700 on car
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: hey doc
Dexter Fong: Hi DT
doctec: uh, room for one more
Elayne: Laura's my blog "techie" and friend. Really great gal. She could use some friendly faces, she's going through a bit of a rough spot now.
Elayne: Hey Tom!
Coalin Trowel: What do you doctec, antway?
doctec: (geez, not much wiggle room here...)
Bunnyboy: lo doktor
Elayne: "The worst electora-- electrical crisis..." heh, prescient again...
Dr. Headphones: hey doc
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: hey DT
doctec: hi there - lili went to the kitchen to work on chow
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: not in my country club!
ah,clem: got permission from stream owner to retransmit every "a few minutes" at this time each week.
Dr. Headphones: go ahead, doc, wiggle again. that felt remarkably good to me ;)
Dexter Fong: Hello to that twisted genius
Bambi: hey doc
ah,clem: try to do one each week
Dexter Fong: wow
doctec: coalin: i'm a web e-commerce perl programmer by day, electronic musician and rabid billiards maven in the off hours
Rotonoto: yes, and hello to the skeptic inside you that still believes that pigs live in trees, and...
Bunnyboy: What balls he has!
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: (and that's the things he can tell you about
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: )
Elayne: Of course, twice a year you're Captain Equinox.
Bunnyboy: That's my cue.
Coalin Trowel: Can you tap dance while doing all this?
Bunnyboy: I'll corner that pocket if it's the last thing I do!
Dexter Fong: Chalk up another for Bb
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: actually, Roto, there's recent proof that pigs long ago came out of the trees to walk on land. this is when their intelligence took a giant leap
Bob Hind: Who am us anyway?
Rotonoto: arch enemy of Captain Metamucil
Bunnyboy: It's how I've always felt.
Bunnyboy: Chalk one up for me!
Dr. Headphones: tap dance, tap beer, i don't care
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: why, contrast them with those kangaroos in New Guinea who still live in trees.
doctec: totally weird thing happened last night: i got an email from a friend of a long lost college pal - said pal had made copies of some ancient electronic music of mine and he was looking for me to find out (a) if i was still doing music and (b) how he could get hold of new copies of my old stuff since he had worn out his cassette copies
||||||||| At 10:09 PM, Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto! vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
Dexter Fong: You must lead a cushy life BB
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: ...only to find out that he had the last surviving copy of a long-lost session...
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: ancient electronics! Fascinating!
||||||||| It's 10:10 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Phuck Fonics - dead from the yaws
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Elayne: That's quite cool, Tom!
Dr. Headphones: i have a one-of-a-kind cassette tape of an old band i was in that has come off the rewind hub. would like to get it repaired and transfer to cd so i can share with others
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: "just a shot away" -- I missed that!
Bunnyboy: Hey, y'all hear that The Who are headlining the 2004 Isle of Wight Festival this June?
Bambi: hi Elayne
doctec: steve/klok: no way, i'm a pack rat, i save everthing - i've got reel to reel tapes dating back to my first forays in recording back in '75 or '76
Dr. Headphones: who's on first?
Bunnyboy: And playing 3 club dates in London in March, prior to a Royal Albert Hall appearance.
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: Who's Who these days?
Dexter Fong: Yes
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: You mean, you mean...darn, Dylan is going to be a no-show again?
doctec: dr. h. : "came off the rewind hub - you mean it's a pile of spaghetti in a box somewhere?
Bunnyboy: AND releasing a new greatest hits title, THEN AND NOW, with 2 new tracks.
Rotonoto: but first this important massage from our sponsor, Dunk of Madness Motors...
Elayne: Hey Bambi! Don't mind me, still multitasking a bit...
Coalin Trowel: Ruttles..?
ah,clem: Ken, send it to me, Ican fix that tape, no prob
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: I think Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker ought to join the Who
Bunnyboy: "Happy Birthday to..." "Listen. I get PAID to sing!"
Bambi: me too Elayne :)
doctec: hope you're enjoying the all night images
Dr. Headphones: doc: no, i mean it's all on one spool inside the plastic and can't be moved past the heads to play
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: yeah, maybe I'll bring some of my 4-tracks by -- nobody can play those anymore, worse than Edison cylinders
Elayne: Isn't "The Who" pretty much just Daltry and Townshend now?
Dr. Headphones: clem! you're a lifesaver (hmmm, lime?)
Elayne: I mean, half the original band isn't with us any more, seems weird to keep calling themselves that.
Bunnyboy: Jack Bruce has been ill recently, I understand. And Ginger Baker...well, try cutting that ego with a chainsaw!
Bambi: that's my clem :)
Bunnyboy: Greg Lake played bass on one of the new tracks. Zak Starkey has been their tour drummer for about the last 7 years.
Dr. Headphones: greg lake as in e.l.p.? i thought he was dead
doctec: dr. h.: very interesting - eminently repairabe. even if the cassette shell is sealed (no screws), it can be pried apart and installed in a new shell
ah,clem: if you do not have mail info, email, and I'll fill that in,, Ken, but that is not a big problem.
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: Chris Squire and Alan White might even be a good rhythm section for The Who.
||||||||| Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto! sneaks in around 10:15 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last week's "unpleasant incident."
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: They wouldn't do it though
Bunnyboy: klok: Y'ever hear FACTORY SHOWROOM, by They Might Be Giants? It features a track called I CAN HEAR YOU, recorded on an Edison cylinder, at the museum\lab in...is it Rahway, NJ?
Dr. Headphones: i will attempt to find it. i know it's in a box in the basement, and i think i can find quickly. clem, i think i still have your address, will look
Dr. Headphones: YES!
Bunnyboy: Carl Anderson, RIP
stephnfosterkane-o'klok has dealt with many a past-its-go-bad-by Books on Tape cassette, but Ken's sounds like a prof. job...
Elayne: Bunnyboy, probably Menlo Park.
Bunnyboy: Classic Yes is presently on tour, as is Deep Purple (without Richie Blackmore).
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: I had a prof job once, enjoyed it immensely
Dexter Fong: Menlo Park, the Universal Life Shurch guy?
Bambi smiles
Bunnyboy: Elayne: Yes, Menlo Park, thanks.
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: actually, there are plenty of Edison players around, but getting to be darned few 9-track tape units and extremely few (mostly in E. Europe) 7-track ones. And 8" floppies? Well...
Merlyn LeRoy: If you're planning on going to the April 1 show, tickets are almost gone, I had to get "obstructed view" (first row balcony)
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: by comparison, 8-tracks have become a fetish and are quite available
Dr. Headphones: bun: i just got a couple of yes dvd's of live appearances from the 60s through 90s
Bunnyboy: Search them! They're hiding their FAITH!
Bunnyboy: (removes mask, faces bomb) I reveal myself to my Lord.
Dexter Fong: Searches by Faith & Begorra
doctec: that kind of cassette repair job is not too difficult if all the tape is on one spool - the tape can be attached to the takeup spool by inserting it in the little gap with the snap-in plastic piece that holds the tape on the spool
Bunnyboy: techy is Docky
||||||||| Catherwood announces "It's 10:19 PM; let's see who falls in through our celebrity trap door!" -- he pulls a lever, and Phil Austin plummets onto the oriental shag rug.
doctec: hey steve/klok: i have an old 8-track car cassette player that's never been installed in a car, it's pristine
Merlyn LeRoy: hey phil
Bunnyboy: Old school preachin' tonite!
Dexter Fong: Hey Phil, you're early
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: get thee to e-Bay!
Coalin Trowel: Howdy Phil!
Bambi: http://www.edisonnj.org/menlopark/
Elayne: Hi Phil!
Phil Austin: Not a clue what is happening. Just got home and remembered.
Bambi: Hi Phil!
ah,clem: doc, we know this, but you are takking me out of the chance to do a favor for a dear friend.
Elayne: eBay? Wait, they're selling Menlo Park?
Phil Austin: Hi, everyone
Dr. Headphones: hi phil :)
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: hey Phil!
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: watch out Phil, with an audience this big, we might get out of control!
Bambi: Elayne you can listen to some cylinders on that Menlo Park site
Elayne: I wouldn't give you a plugged nickel for Cranford, but Menlo Park, that's something else entirely.
ah,clem: hi Phil, good to see you
Dexter Fong: Step away from the celbrity
Dexter Fong: celebrity
Dave!: it's Phil! welcome to your own chat lad, grab a pint and whatever else is lying around here, watch out for that rat though
Phil Austin: I'm desperately reading to see who's here ...
stephnfosterkane-o'klok is glad PA, at least, can afford the treatments. Short term memory is gone
Elayne: I don't have the cylinders toget there, Bambi. Not terribly accessible by public transit, I'll warrant.
doctec: hi phil - i just told lili you signed on and she said, from the kitchen as she is preparing dinner: "it;s about f*cking time - and he's early too!" (don't be fooled, she's actually quite happy you're here - as am i)
Dr. Headphones: all of us are here, in one place alone
Bunnyboy: lo Mister President!
Coalin Trowel: I'm here,...I think?
Phil Austin: Has Mr.Muck disappeared?
Coalin Trowel: Muck was here eralier
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: not completely ;-)
Bambi: he is fading fast but not truly gone yet
Dexter Fong: He away Phil
Rotonoto: you don't want to count the elevator boy?
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: he's parenthetical person right now
Dexter Fong: But not gone
Bunnyboy: The Stranger ran a lovely mock banner this week: RALPH NADER IS A MEGLOMANIACAL ASSWIPE!
Bambi: wait...he's got parenthesis around his name ... what does it mean, man?
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: haven't heard from him in about a half hour
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: what's happening to my voice!
Merlyn LeRoy: Phil, I could only get 'obstructed view' tickets to the April 1 show, sounds nearly sold out
doctec: bb: re nader - you got that right!
Dr. Headphones: bun: amen and hallelujah to that!
Dexter Fong: Bambi, he's marked as awy..its on the drop down menu
Rotonoto: praise be! someone else sees through Nadres crap?
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: BB, were you looking for Muckle? We were trying to Devine it.
Bambi: ah, thanks Dex :)
doctec: i just can't fathom what he thinks he's going to accomplish by throwing his hat in the ring
Elayne: There's a drop-down menu?
Dexter Fong: Roto: YOu mean Ralph (Kol) Nadres?
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: Ken and I and Dex had an exchange by email and I can't find anything about it
doctec: does the elevator boy count?
Rotonoto: mine completely fell off- I have to fully spell out everything now...
Phil Austin: I'm back. Went downstairs and made grapefruit and vodkas for me and the oooooo.
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: that's a Nader. That's a pun
Phil Austin: Merl:
Dexter Fong: Elayne, where it says send to all?
Bambi: yes, at the bottom where all the names are too ... below every participants name I see I can be away if I want to :)
Merlyn LeRoy: yes?
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: willard?
Phil Austin: . I called UCLA and got the same story. We haven't heard yet if we have any seats
Rotonoto: I mean Ralph as in "Chanting at the urn" Nadre, teh very same, ne boy,,,
Elayne: Fun fact of the day: Nader's VP candidate from 2000 has endorsed Kucinich. His campaign is apparently veepless at present.
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: ampere-watt?
Elayne: Oh, yes Dex, I see that. I didn't realize there were more choices than everyone's individual names.
Merlyn LeRoy: hmm, you guys should perform out on the street and get a bigger audience
ah,clem: yes
Bambi: back again
doctec: does the elevator boy count?
Dexter Fong: Yeah: Do it in the street
Elayne: Hey, whaddaya know. Hang on, I'm going to read the drop-down menu now. :)
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: gad, I'd forgotten the ending on Giant Rat!
Rotonoto: only to 10 doc
Coalin Trowel: HE is in your family?
doctec: hey phil what's your fave vodka?
Dexter Fong: Klok: How could you forget you namesake?
Bambi smiels
ah,clem: good old willard
Phil Austin: merl: excellent idea. Street theatre out in front of the theatre that I appeared in when I was in college.
doctec: (thanks roto i was waiting for that :) )
Dr. Headphones: i see we're nearly unanimous on ralphie
Bambi smiles even
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: Ha
Elayne: Would that be theatre-street-theatre?
Rotonoto: mine is a giant popup menu, immune to gravity or comedy
Phil Austin: doc: w
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: Finally got the thing going
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: i explained earlier, Dex: I can't afford the treatments like u guys. I forget everything
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: damn
Phil Austin: doc: we've fallen in love with Apple vodka and slices of real apple to go with it.
doctec: (thanks roto i was waiting for that :) )
Bunnyboy: Or a protest, inside the theatre. A Lock-In!
doctec: but teton glacier is also good
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: Ken - I disagree. Had it out with Roto earlier, won't bother everyone here. But we're dangerously close to a totalitarian society
ah,clem: sounds yummy
Rotonoto: repent and defragment before it is too late...
Dexter Fong: Phil: Try some of that Tangenterine Vodka, it'l steer you off course
Bunnyboy: And signs outside that say NO LOCK-IN PARKING.
ah,clem: (apple on apple)
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: I prefer Vino Bros
Rotonoto: (Klock's tone is pretty mild for 'having it out')
Phil Austin: doc: frankly, it all tastes pretty much the same to me
Dr. Headphones: klok: yes, i know we have differences re: ralphie, just agree to disagree
doctec: there are two new ones i found recently, oliphant and ston (from holland and estonia respectively)
Merlyn LeRoy: Randy Newman didn't show up at his UCLA similar tribute
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: just 'cause he's on a ballot doesn't mean anyone has to vote for him
Phil Austin: dex: Looove the tangerine
ah,clem: I am a Bear Wiz man, myself
doctec: i don't like the flavored vodkas much
Bambi: Erzatz (spelling??) sounds good LOL
Phil Austin: Merl: probably because they wouldn't give him a ticket
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: I had it out, I was told to put it back
Dr. Headphones: i don't drink much at all, prefer beer actually to most anything else
doctec: some vodkas are more harsh and headache-inducing than others
ah,clem: yea, Bambi likes her coffee,,,
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: OH! Ken -- was it that we were all doing it via AOL IM??
Dexter Fong goes in search of Catherwood and the drink tray
Bambi smiles
Dr. Headphones: i'm doing a shot of folger's now
Phil Austin: Mr. Yamamoto of Hollywood seems to have become a crazy person with a funny name
Merlyn LeRoy: Phil, the front row of the balcony seems to be available and not yet sold because the railing makes it "restricted view". Get all 4 Firesigners in the balcony so you can play to the cheap seats
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: do tell
Phil Austin: In fact, the names are getting to be the whole story here
doctec: both oliphant and ston are very inexpensive yet smooth and blend well with various other flavored liquids
Bubba's Brain: ...
doctec: no headaches either
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: I try to think of a new one each week
Phil Austin: Merl: We should have big stupid plaster of paris heads and signs bearing slogans
Elayne: Well, a few of us here are still short-namers.
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: they're like Yahoo email accounts: free and easily-changed
ah,clem: Yammy has a new name every week, but always with meaning.
doctec: short and sweet
Elayne: Meaning and weird characters...
stephnfosterkane-o'klok: better go change...
Merlyn LeRoy: Yeah, but you guys should be wearing each other's heads
Phil Austin: Hi, Elayne: Have you guys moved yet?
Dr. Headphones: hmmm, yahoo is free? why have i been paying them $19.95/month all these decades? ;)
ah,clem: right
||||||||| "Hey stephnfosterkane-o'klok!" ... stephnfosterkane-o'klok turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 10:31 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto! is hurt
Merlyn LeRoy: the two phils should be one set, and david & peter
Phil Austin: Merl: the heads should be Goodman, Hessman, etc
||||||||| Outside, the 10:31 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving klokwkdog coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Elayne: Gah, not yet Phil. We'll be looking this next month or so. Probably relocating elsewhere in the same neighborhood for now, then we'll get a car this year and have a few more options opened.
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: nite klok
Coalin Trowel: Nite Dog
Dr. Headphones: the klok changed his disguise, but we can see right through it
klokwkdog: put on my old clothes just to avoid cornfusing everyone with the SFK thing
Phil Austin: Yam: No, no, I love the name
Bambi: wb klok
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: Well I missed FST, but at least I got Lionel Hampton
Merlyn LeRoy: but not nice for the people behind you
doctec: elayne: actually taking the plunge and getting a car? wow i'm impressed!
Elayne: Phil, is the April 1 to-do going to be recorded in any manner?
doctec: kewel
Phil Austin: merl: The people behind us will be our audience
Rotonoto: it's not nice to fool mother nature...
Merlyn LeRoy: I know, come out and do some Ace Trucking Company bits
Dexter Fong: Yam: Lionel Hampton?
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: There's a tolerable non mega channel on AM, but it's automoation rotation gets tedious
Elayne: Tom, we don't really have a choice, Rob doesn't travel well on public transit and I'm tired of seeing him so under-the-weather all the time.
Coalin Trowel: Talk to Ralph, has he got a deal for you, doc
klokwkdog: on skybird, Dex
Elayne: It's been a bit of a rough winter on us both.

Bunnyboy: Must have missed the newsletter...
doctec: lili has told me it's time for us to partake in her version of "let's eat" - so i must step away for a little - in the immortal words of ahnuld: i'll be back
Elayne: Bunnyboy, it's a very ROUND tribute.
Merlyn LeRoy: back in your boxcars you two
Elayne: 'Kay Tom, take care!

Bambi: there ya go Phil ... perspective ... it's always about perspective :)
Dexter Fong: Merl: Where do you stay in Vegas
klokwkdog: not in season on the right coast, Phil
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: Little Monkey Flu a Jus?
Elayne: Besides, aren't you supposed to just marinate 'em in the vodka rather than using it to cook?
Bubba's Brain: ...
Bambi: (or at least about perception LOL)
Dr. Headphones: monkey pox a la mode
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: go to florida and visit your ammy
Merlyn LeRoy: I was only there once, stayed at a friend of one of the other people on the trip

llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: mock prairie dogs, Phil?
Phil Austin: the perception of perspective
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto! puts on his gloves and gets an gets an OJ
Bunnyboy: Read a news blurb recently. Seems that in Thailand, due to the bird flu scare, rats are all the rage, for bar snacks, especially.
Elayne: Oh, you have to watch those Flaming Marmosets, you drink just two and you're out on the floor.
Phil Austin: Faux Prairie Chiens
Bambi smiles
Rotonoto: leave OJ out of this
Dexter Fong: Phil: FFlemish painter's eh?
Merlyn LeRoy: especially in sumatra
Dr. Headphones: bar snacks? gimme a bourbon and a norwegian rat, please
Bunnyboy: They probably just char 'em, to make 'em stiff!
klokwkdog: yes, those Sumatran rubber rats, per the NYT story today...
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: Stephane Grappelli now
Rotonoto: he is diligently searching the local golf courses

Coalin Trowel: Does that come in a Johnny Cup?

Merlyn LeRoy: should open a pub called the Scorched Rodent

Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: Roasted Rat
Merlyn LeRoy: rat on a stick
Dexter Fong: I'm stuck on you baby
Bunnyboy: 3 straws, as usual. Good old Mickey. Too bad his boss is going down in flames.
ah,clem: rat in a box,, "we'll eat what you don't"
Rotonoto: trade them two contaminated bushels of corn for two beakers filled with chemicals
Elayne: His boss seems to have developed a taste for frog's legs lately.
Dr. Headphones: don't worry about the flies, we won't weigh 'em
Dexter Fong: Roto: I think you mean 2 beakers of foecal coliform
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: These days you get the Chemicals AND the Corn, like it or not
Phil Austin: I have a semi-serious question for everyone: If you had to rank what you thought were the best-realized characters on the three Rhino albums, what would they be?
Elayne: Wonder how much of the Muppet empire they'll cannibalize.
Rotonoto: well, give according to your own conscience, or reasonable facsimile thereof
Elayne: Best realized... gah, brain cells have to go to work now...
Dr. Headphones: bebop loco without a doubt
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: oh gosh
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: Bebop!
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: Have to agree there
Dexter Fong: Phil: Really tough question, but I do love Be-bop Loco (Lobo)
Coalin Trowel: Nick... on the earlier Rhino stuff
Bunnyboy: Mutt and Smut...oops, that's Artemis.
Merlyn LeRoy: yeah, probably bebop
Elayne: I gotta figure Mayor P is pretty well realized, and fairly timely in this election year.
Phil Austin: Sorry, sorry about the pesky brain cell thing
ah,clem: don't know off hand which were rhino, can I have a multiple choice?
Elayne: Honestly, Phil. :)
Dexter Fong: And Ray Ham and Ossmans char also really solid
Merlyn LeRoy: mayor P for bdb and nick for bride
Bunnyboy: Relentless, the dog!
Dexter Fong: Bb lol
Phil Austin: Immortality, Boomdot bust and Bride
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: I liked the dog meself on Bride
Phil Austin: B-Boy: what a vote. the little guy
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: Hiphugger was well realised as well
ah,clem: if Bun votes for relentless, guess I would say Nick Danger.
Phil Austin: two votes for the fucking dog
Dexter Fong: A real square little fella
Dr. Headphones: ruthlessly (where's ruth? no, wrong album)
Dexter Fong: Not from around here
Bambi: I want to listen again before I answer that one Phil ... can email Merlyn right?
Rotonoto: on rhino? that's boom dot bust, bride, and GMIOGMD, right?
Bunnyboy: Yes, but what with "boobgate"\Clear(blocked) Channel, et. al. , the P'n man could be problematic.
Dexter Fong: Is there a prize?
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: Obviously Phil doesn't know about my obsession with Schnäuzers
Dave!: I vote for Catherwood or Nick or...the guy at the begining of Anythynge
klokwkdog: Yikes! The NY Times has 1984'd the Sunday "Rat Tales" Magazine article from its web site!!! It no longer exists!
Phil Austin: Bambi: you are really conscientious (adventures in spelling)
Dave!: or no, oooooooooh! Ralph Spoilsport
Merlyn LeRoy: hey, it's pronounced "P'niss-nose"
Bambi LOL
Dexter Fong: WHo's the 14th caller?
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: Dwayne is quite well realised too
Coalin Trowel: How about Jimmy Clicker?
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: Have to admit Ralph and/or Happy Harry Cox are my all time faves, sorry
Dexter Fong: How about Flo and Dwayne and Eddie
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: Jimmy Clicker was like Paul Harvey
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto! needs more coffee
Phil Austin: Coalin: thanks for remembering Jimmy. He enjoys being remembered
Bunnyboy: Yeah, Dwayne's fun.
Rotonoto: yeah, I gotta replay all, think about it- in addition to bee bop, I was kind of taken by the celebrity stalker guy ("S-s-s-he's *not* dead...snif!")
klokwkdog: I liked the Chinese guy, but forgot the name. Some of that was classic
Dexter Fong feels badly for Phil because there's not a hope in hell of keeping this group on topic
Phil Austin: Jimmy Clicker is sort of my bad imitation of Paul Harvey, indeed
Bunnyboy: Buncha turtles. They'll never go anywhere...
ah,clem: the "tale of the Giant Rat" was a great piece of detective work, as it was the one story Sir Aurtur would never tell.
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: Paul Harvey is a bad imitation of Paul Harvey these days
Merlyn LeRoy: hey, phil only asked for the best-realized, not whether you liked the character or not
Bunnyboy: "I drift off here..."
klokwkdog: ah, what did Ira Glass call Harvey?
Bambi: yes, just terrible to have to listen to them again LOL ... I can hardly wait to have a really good reason to listen again...thanks Phil :)
Bambi: not that I'd need a good reason ... enjoy them all!
Phil Austin: klok: Charlie Fatt. Wherever this group goes is topic enough. David and I have been working on some stuff lately and all this is strangely helpful, believe it or not
Elayne: Why doesn't clem play them next week and we can all refresh our short-term memories?
Bunnyboy: Yam: Cut Paul a break! He's got, like, half a vocal cord left.
Bambi: there ya go Elayne ... bet he could do that :)
Coalin Trowel: How About a modern update of "Golf Rat Shoot" with Dubya as the ....?
Rotonoto: ahhh yes- "there's no place lime hommmmmmmmeeee!"
ah,clem: Bambi, what happened to our stream? replay in12
Dexter Fong: Bunny: Just the tonic
klokwkdog: no, he had a chinese name in the first ad on BdB (they all take English names, but I try to be correct ;-))
Bunnyboy: Anybody who hasn't seen it yet, rent AMERICAN SPLENDOR. Fabulous movie!
Bambi: what say ye clem?
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: Personally *I*'d still like to hear "In Cold HTML" read on an album
Phil Austin: B-boy: I share your affection for Paul, but isn't he dead now or something and his son doing the show?
Elayne: Honestly clem, this is the only time I seem to get a chance to hear the records any more. :)
Bambi: can't you hear it clem ? ;)
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: I'd really like to hear Miss Shelob sometime when she's not feelin poorly
Rotonoto: yes, give us the rest of the story...
klokwkdog: Phil, it's like A Boy and His Dog: "Break out another Luther from storage"...
ah,clem: do now, tks Bambi
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Yämamøto!: I hear his show daily, and his voice keepos changing and so do the ppl presenting it
Elayne: Well, I'm going to catch a few more minutes of AbFab then the Daily Show. See y'all next week!
Dexter Fong: Ilan: =))
Bunnyboy: Phil: No, that's Andy Wappler. And Harry's not dead, just retired.

Johnny Piano: Haven't seen new AbFab episodes - any good?
Rotonoto: and then there's of course the "speaker for the dead" in one of PK Dicks wild SF tomes...
Bambi: Merl even put it up on the topic :)
klokwkdog: Brits at least still have some class and don't beat something into the ground trying to score 100 episodes for syndication
Johnny Piano: Not pronounced Wah-pleer.
Phil Austin: uhclem: would you refresh me with the uplink for your station?
Dexter Fong: PHil TOp o the page

Dr.Bejamin: cheese monster...
Bambi: wow, didn't know I had it in me :)
Rotonoto: the sherpa guides are exhausted, trying to keep up with Bambi
Dr.Bejamin: The sherpa guides are sharp....
Rotonoto: she kindly stops l;ong enough to share her limited canister of oxygen with the exhausted sherpas...
Bambi: you know those sherpa guides
Dr.Bejamin: or maybe Bambi's sharp!
Dr.Bejamin: Yeah right.....
Bambi: I'll never tell
Dr.Bejamin: Of course not...not with that gag in your mouth
Bambi: always try to be a kindly deer to sherpas
Dr.Bejamin: Hmmm....
Rotonoto: yes, they made her an honorary sherpa
Dr.Bejamin: Sherpa's or Bergers
Dr.Bejamin: Bambi Beger....
Bambi: well Roto great to see ya here tonight! And great to meet you Dr. Bejamin ... but need to hit the hay as they say :)
Dr.Bejamin: the passion of the sherpas
Rotonoto: no burghers are flatlenders, not fit for mountain climbing, only for politics and beer-making
Dr.Bejamin: HEy!!!!!

Dr.Bejamin: Hit what hay???
Bambi: mountain climbing ... one of my favorite things
Dr.Bejamin: Hey RORO.....

Bambi: straw, hay ... bales
Bambi: night Roto
Dr.Bejamin: Nite Bambi
Bambi: see ya later guys :)
Rotonoto: chewing gum, baling wire, crazy glue...
||||||||| "Hey Bambi!" ... Bambi turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 12:39 AM, I don't have to go yet!"...
Dr.Bejamin: Hey Bambi.....
Rotonoto: a yuh, it be in ruins, mate
Dr.Bejamin: So...rotonoto.....

Rotonoto: ok dude, bring me seven new firequotes next week and we have humerous dual (duel?)
Rotonoto: farewell fellow bozo
Rotonoto: get your hands off me, I'm a newsman, I gotta find out- Reeeebusssss!!!
||||||||| Rotonoto departs at 12:45 AM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Rotonoto close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 12:45 AM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the Aviary.
Rotonoto: No- *yoy* hang up first!
Rotonoto: no you hang up forst
Rotonoto: my darn keybd can't spell
||||||||| Rotonoto says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, Rotonoto exits at 12:46 AM.
||||||||| It's 12:50 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Dr.Bejamin - dead from the yaws
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| 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."
