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 April 15, 2004 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Mudhead enters at 7:46 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and runs off to the Haberdashery Barn.
||||||||| Mudhead leaves at 7:47 PM, singing "Oh, I'm just a little fishy, floating in the sea, and there ain't no hook that's smart enough to catch the likes of me..."
||||||||| Merlyn waltzes in at 8:03 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'EdmundEdmund', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 8:03 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
EdmundEdmund: Hello hello
Merlyn: hey EdEd
EdmundEdmund: So this is why no one is on IRC anymore.
Merlyn: Not for about 3 years
EdmundEdmund: Yeah, it's been a while.
Merlyn: OK, 2 years; the latest IRC is Sept. 2002
EdmundEdmund: Well, I was busy.
Merlyn: We're an hour early for the regular crowd
EdmundEdmund: Some of them might remember me then.
EdmundEdmund: I'll be here in an hour. Nothing better to do.
EdmundEdmund: I saw a notice about this place at the Majoirty Report Blog and I thought I'd see if anyone I know shows up.
Merlyn: oh, I put that up
Merlyn: glad somebody saw it
Merlyn: I'll put up a reminder in an hour, too
EdmundEdmund: Sounds good.
EdmundEdmund: I think we've talked before... it's been a long time though. I used to work for LodesTone... did a lot of the cover art for their releases among other things.
Merlyn: Yeah; John Weber is buying lodestone
EdmundEdmund: So Rich told me. I sent John a good luck message and told him if he needed any help to let me know.
Merlyn: He usually logs in as "Bubba's Brain"
||||||||| Outside, the 8:11 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving samhain coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Merlyn: We're working with Firesign for T-shirt ideas
samhain: hello...hello?
Merlyn: hello sam
Merlyn: new here?
EdmundEdmund: John logs in here? Awesome. I haven't talked to him in ages.
Merlyn: Yeah, he's usually in each week
Merlyn: hey samhain, say something.
samhain: ok
EdmundEdmund: Oh now I remember! You sent me the art for George Tirebiter's Radio Follies!
Merlyn: Right!
Merlyn: It came out kind of stripey on the CD case, due to being faxed, I think
samhain: how is everyone this eve
EdmundEdmund: Sorry, my brain is not very functional right now. I think it came out stripey due to our equipment being cheap at the time.
EdmundEdmund: Hiya sam.
samhain: what/where is the firesign theater?
Merlyn: Ah; there's a version of it that I re-drew here: http://firesigntheater.com/tirebiter/
Merlyn: Firesign Theatre is a comedy troupe from the late 1960s (to present)
Merlyn: Have you heard of Nick Danger? That's them.
EdmundEdmund: Neat. These days I live within spitting distance (not that I would) of Proctor's home... I don't have any contact info for him anymore or I'd take he and Melinda out to dinner.
samhain: no, no I haven't.
||||||||| Outside, the 8:16 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving sylvia coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
EdmundEdmund: Hello sylvia
sylvia : hello all
Merlyn: The albums page has a lot of audio clips (you can listen after Majority Report if you like) http://www.firsigntheatre.com/albums
EdmundEdmund: samhain, check them out, they're very funny and still politically relevant.
Merlyn: hi sylvia
||||||||| Catherwood leads Zeit inside, makes a note of the time (8:17 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Merlyn: eded, I can send you Proctor's email (or phone #), or just go through planetproctor.com
Merlyn: Hey zeit, how ya fixed for geist?
Zeit: Evening
samhain: i want my bloody google email already
Merlyn: I want email that oogles me
Merlyn: and makes my penis bigger
Zeit: Last I heard Gmail was having some court problems
sylvia : So what is the agenda tonight? I'm new to this and hapilly listening to sam and janeane
samhain: *shudders* joy behar.....grrrreat....
sylvia : I'm hoping it get cleared up, because google mail sounds promising at least
Merlyn: pretty much whatever people want to talk about
EdmundEdmund: I really hope they popularize that photo I posted on the blog.
EdmundEdmund: Google Mail scares me... they will use a computer program to read through all of your e-mail to target-market products to you.
sylvia : I saw that, chilling
Merlyn: "more coffins, warden?"
||||||||| Outside, the 8:22 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving Ginny coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Zeit: It's not chilling, there arnt going to be a panel of people reading through your mail
Zeit: itle just be a computer progam that searches for key words
Ginny: I think we're all bozos on this bus, but the radio is tuned to Air America ...
Zeit: Like one of those old text based search engines
sylvia : the picture, not google
Merlyn: hey ginny, sometimes Phil Austin of Firesign Theatre actually shows up on these chats
sylvia : ^as to what was chilling
Merlyn: But I think he's on vacation right now
EdmundEdmund: Phil was really mean to me once. :(
Zeit: oh, that would certainly make more sense
Zeit: I havntseen the photo, can you link itin here for me?
Merlyn: what happened, ed^2?
Merlyn: The photo is at http://www.bartcop.com/iraq-coffins.jpg
EdmundEdmund: http://www.bartcop.com/iraq-coffins.jpg
Zeit: Thanks
Merlyn: There's an echo in here
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Mudhead', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 8:25 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
EdmundEdmund: Merlyn, I had to call all of them about some sort of legal issue and he got really mad and yelled at me because he was writing...
Mudhead: echo
Merlyn: Ah, misdirected anger
Mudhead: gey yhis echo off of me
Ginny: He's no fun, he fell right over (See, I can do Firesign and AAR. Product of a college education in Oregon, I guess.)
EdmundEdmund: Who am us anyway?
Merlyn: ask the postman
Mudhead: I just wanna sit in this tree and play the flute
Merlyn: hokay
Ginny: Is there a popup running on this website? It's making Google's toolbar nutty.
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 8:29 PM and BuckFush steps out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
Mudhead: yummm, nutty Google
Merlyn: there's no popups, ginny, just PHP frames
EdmundEdmund: Ginny... are you the same Ginny that is on Undernet? If so, I'm Arken there.
Mudhead: Is that with caramel?
Zeit: Wouldnt a draft be political suicide, It would enrage people more than taking away social security
Ginny: LOL, hi Arken.
Merlyn: (I wrote all this) in what way is the google toobar nutty?
||||||||| It's 8:30 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| samhain - dead from The Plague
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Ginny: the popupstopper keeps clicking merrily away.
EdmundEdmund: Google Toolbar is evil because it takes up more of my precious, precious browser window space.
Merlyn: Oh, I'm sure that's because this web page keeps doing an auto-refresh to print new text
Mudhead: Funny Ginny mines not complaining
Zeit: That's why you should use Bonzai buddy, the best program out there
Merlyn: mudhead, do you have the popup stopper on?
||||||||| "8:31 PM? 8:31 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Enid should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Enid enters and sits on the couch.
Zeit: Hands Down
Ginny: Ah, well, I think I'll stick to IRC for now, fewer noise distractions (besides the dreaded Embedded commercial)
Mudhead: You didnt say "Simon Sez"
Mudhead: what irc?
Merlyn: Hey, here we got colored text and everything!
Zeit: mIRC?
Mudhead: Im on Bararcade right now
Zeit: I'm geting nearly a 5 second+ lag here.
Ginny: See you guys (I'll probably have to come back and look around the rest of Firesign for old time's sake.) Yes, mIRC, or some doohicky like that.
Merlyn: see you, ginny
sylvia : my connection is acting up, but I look forward to chatting more later
Mudhead: do ya know what server/channel?
EdmundEdmund: Funny... I've been listening to Air America for the past half an hour and I still don't have an irrational zombielike urge to see Embedded at the Public Theatre.
||||||||| Ginny departs at 8:33 PM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
EdmundEdmund: Bye Ginny
Merlyn: zeit, the lag is just the refresh rate of the screen
Merlyn: I keep the default at 10 seconds because frequent refreshes seem to be more annoying than anything else. The screen flickers.
Mudhead: Im also really lagged
Zeit: Was that bush calling for a christian crusade
EdmundEdmund: Please, I beg of them, no more Let the Eagles Soar.
Merlyn: You can set your refresh rate to be faster by pulling down the "send to all" menu and selecting Configure, which will eventually refresh with the configure panel
Mudhead: Throw some more fuel at the gerbils inna wheel Merlyn, we need MORE POWER!
Merlyn: Or you can just manually refresh the screen
EdmundEdmund: Ah. Thank you, Merlyn.
Mudhead: how
Merlyn: The real EZ way is to go to the big long URL and change the ...refresh=10... buried in it to refresh=3 or whatever
Mudhead: i think
Merlyn: You should be able to see the params in the page URL
EdmundEdmund: Or you use your magical powers.
Mudhead: i got it
Mudhead: now how do i get rid of the parameter
Merlyn: You can pull down the menu and select the blank gap
Mudhead: how do i shut down configure?
Merlyn: That blanks the little private msg area
||||||||| It's 8:40 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Enid - dead from jaundice
||||||||| BuckFush - dead from the yaws
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Merlyn: That reaper just goes after people
Mudhead: how do i shut down configure?
Merlyn: I said mudhead, pull down the menu again and select the blank area
Merlyn: Right after Zeit's name
Mudhead: ok
Mudhead: thank you benevolent Wizard
Merlyn: For that, I won't reap you...
EdmundEdmund: What the hell is this crap Joy Behar is saying?
EdmundEdmund: Television is supposed to be balanced?
Merlyn: oh, who knows?
Mudhead: Would anyone like to know how my week went?
EdmundEdmund: No, but tell us anyway.
Mudhead: cuz I need to share
Merlyn: how did your week went? Mine went sun mon tue wed thu fri sat
EdmundEdmund: We'll never have days like that again.
Zeit: I'm geting nearly a 5 second+ lag here.
Merlyn: change your refresh rate zeit, the default is 10 seconds
Zeit: I dont know why it just repeated what I said.
Zeit: I thin I hit the wrong button.
Zeit: Telesion isnt balancd because television has to get ratings, and the main constituecy of T.V. are Republicans
Merlyn: there used to be an occassional keyboard bounce kinda bug
Mudhead: Its almost as bad as a country song, my car Did die, my phones shut off, cable and electric are off tmmw, my best friend is separating from his wife, and my state and federal disability assistance is gettin took away
Mudhead: and yjay was one day
Merlyn: ouch, mudhead
Mudhead: and that was on the 13th
Merlyn: you have to turn to steam power or something
Mudhead: i need the tube
EdmundEdmund: Tuesday the 13th... always a bad sign.
Mudhead: better yet, a bong
Mudhead: but I cant smoke no more
Merlyn: just wait for that Bush Economic Turnaround®
Mudhead: maybe if I hold my breath
EdmundEdmund: Well... I have never seen the View and now I know I never, ever will.
Merlyn: the View to a Kill
Mudhead: I wanna do everything I possibly can to re-defeat GW Bush
EdmundEdmund: Evvverything? *goes off to fetch the explosives*
Merlyn: good point, mudhead
||||||||| Outside, the 8:49 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving cease coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
cease: early tonight
Merlyn: hey cat
Mudhead: right at the top of my head Merlyn
EdmundEdmund: Cat!
cease: i thought maybe austin would be here, causing us all to appear early
EdmundEdmund: Long time no type pal!
||||||||| It's 8:50 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:

cease: what that sylvia austin?
Merlyn: no, cat
||||||||| Catherwood leads Bunnyboy inside, makes a note of the time (8:50 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
cease: mus, merl, zeit
Bunnyboy: heh
EdmundEdmund: No, and now that the reaper has taken her I'm thinking she might be Sylvia Plath
Merlyn: I think Austin may be in vacation

Mudhead: haha
cease: bunny
Mudhead: your fried tm
EdmundEdmund: Hi Bunny
||||||||| marick sneaks in around 8:51 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last week's "unpleasant incident."
Bunnyboy: Merl: Well, he's certainly vacated The Waiting Room. ; )
Merlyn: I think he just mentioned being on the road for the next 10 days or something
cease: i noticed your plug on the majority report blog, merl
cease: aha
Mudhead: no cars on that road i hope
Merlyn: Yeah, we got a few people show up for a bit
cease: i wonder if it will bring people here
Mudhead: he'd get squashed
cease: already, merl?
||||||||| Catherwood escorts jasenlee in through the front door at 8:52 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
EdmundEdmund: It brought me back. What more do you want?
EdmundEdmund: What more COULD you want?
Mudhead: What can I get?
Merlyn: yeah cat, you didn't notice EdEd
cease: i wasnt gonna show b4 6 as usual but just finished dinner and figured i'd see if anyone showed up here early. i am very surprised
EdmundEdmund: All we have to fear is me.
EdmundEdmund: No, he said hi to me.
Mudhead: Tasmanian fur ball warmers?
Merlyn: warm mukluks?
cease: ed2 sounds familiar
Mudhead: get them outta de cellophane
cease: is jasonlee another spelling of janene?
Mudhead: but no wolf stools
Merlyn: dan geduld from lodestone and IRC
EdmundEdmund: Exactly. I was even in a couple of your productions, you crazy man!
Merlyn: quite a different spelling
cease: aha
cease: not the same person as bubba's brain though, right?
EdmundEdmund: Must... see... embedded... at... public... theatre
Bunnyboy: EATING RAOUL is on DVD now. Watched it for the first time a couple of days ago. Quite droll, yes...
Merlyn: right
EdmundEdmund: No, not the same. That's John Webber.
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 8:55 PM, dragging Scumbo by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this bozo?"
cease: speaking of productions, i have an idea for a spot for air america
Scumbo: hello
EdmundEdmund: Plus, he's still in Indiana. I'm on the Left Coast now.
cease: i probably know you by another name, ed
Merlyn: hi scumbo
EdmundEdmund: I've submitted a couple of things to Air America but they didn't respond.
cease: right, i got email from him about marketing said productions
Bunnyboy: And lotsa character actors to spot: Buck Henry, Ed Begley Jr., John Paragon and the late, great Richard Paul.
Scumbo: how is everyone on this fine evening?
cease: you mean fully produced, ed?
EdmundEdmund: Cat: You know me as this one and as Daniel Geduld. As Merlyn said, I used to work for Rich. You cast me in a couple of your productions as I said.
cease: we're great, now you're here, scumbo
EdmundEdmund: Yes, fully produced.
Bunnyboy: Not to mention Edie MacClurg...which I now have.
Merlyn: I told you not to mention her
cease: i noticed when i signed up for membership they said no submissions, please
||||||||| Outside, the 8:56 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving alown coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Bunnyboy: Sorry about that, Chief
Scumbo: sounds about right cease.
EdmundEdmund: They have an 'unsolicited submissions' in their contact email now so I sent a couple.
Scumbo: i was just trying to play limbaugh.com but i have to sign up or something.
Bunnyboy: BTW, Don Adams turned 81 the other day. 5 more years to go!
cease: yet they do offer "submissions:" from people- for example the 2 versions of "she still looks reptitlian to me"
Merlyn: ah, that'd be the right address to use
Merlyn: to go to what, bboy?
cease: you're not alown no more. you're with us
Bunnyboy: I can see the article now: AGENT 86 AT 86.
EdmundEdmund: Would you believe 82?
Mudhead: cruel but oddly humorous
Merlyn: I see; barbara feldon has to hit 99?
Scumbo: i want to submit something fantastic
Bunnyboy: A boy scout with a pocket knife?
cease: me too, scumbo. but they would have to determine it was fantastic
Bunnyboy: The Cone of Silence!
EdmundEdmund: I have no shame. I'll probably keep submitting things for the hell of it and expect them not to air them.
Bunnyboy: Phineas J. Whoopie, you're a genius!
Mudhead: what?
||||||||| Outside, the 8:58 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving TomInNYC coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.

Mudhead: ah Clem!
Bunnyboy: Naw, Barb turned 71 about a week back.
Scumbo: i bet tom is cute

Bunnyboy: And she still looks great.
Merlyn: catherwood's watch is fast again
Mudhead: she didnt hurt her back tho
cease: so you can just walk or take subway to their station and give them a cd?
Scumbo: theres only like 8 million of us
EdmundEdmund: Little sketches and such. For instance, this morning Al Franken said that the 'Islamic Extremist Leanrs to Fly' memo sounds like a childrens' book, so I did an audiobook version of the book.
Scumbo: right tom?
||||||||| It's 9:00 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| jasenlee - dead from the fiddlers

Scumbo: to people on the trains
EdmundEdmund: http://www.everyonesvoice.com/extremistfly.mp3
ah,clem: hi all, BBL

TomInNYC: NYC is pretty anti-Bush
Merlyn: I'll wait for the newsbreak, Ed^@

Mudhead: Welcome Tom
EdmundEdmund: I think Oklahoma's slogan should be Oklahoma: The OTHER Kansas
Merlyn: ok tom, one of the webmasters is tom near NYC
Mudhead: Im from CT

TomInNYC: I saw the "link" on the "blog" on MR
Scumbo: i am sneezy

cease: just read great article about kansas in harpers
Mudhead: i am the other one, Horny

cease: and Doc is doc
Merlyn: noah's arkansas
TomInNYC: I'm not a dwarf

Mudhead: no Mudhead is...Mudhead, from before the beginning
Bunnyboy: The Dubya Special, AKA The Texas Caesar: Green lettuce, with a generous side of bullshit.
Merlyn: don't crush that dwarf
cease: you'd have to say bullcrap on air america
EdmundEdmund: You know how you can tell Dick Cheney is lying? Bush's lips are moving.
Merlyn: it's a law?
cease: mudhead used to be richard arnold, long ago
cease: good one, ed
EdmundEdmund: Thank you.
Merlyn: I like elayne's idea of just substituting "FCC" for all swearing
Bunnyboy: No, it's a guideline.
TomInNYC: Bush is soo full of himself
cease: ed, you said you submitted pieces? how?
EdmundEdmund: Oo. Elayne shows up? I haven't talked to her in ages either.
cease: sounds like an old firesign riff
Mudhead: Isnt she moving?
Merlyn: sure EE
||||||||| Outside, the 9:05 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving Reebus_Kaneebus coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
EdmundEdmund: Cat: They have a little submission form on their contact page and one of the choices is unsolicited submissions. I sent them URLs to mp3s I did.
Merlyn: "FCC" pronounced "FK"
cease: oh i see
EdmundEdmund: I last spoke with both Elayne and Doc on my honeymoon at a sushi place in Greenwich Village.

Reebus_Kaneebus: AA got dumped in LA and CHICAGO

Reebus_Kaneebus: I am NORTH of toronto, windsor and montreal.
Bunnyboy: Oh, Garry Goodrow's also in EATING RAOUL. Man, he ran on for public office in NY a few years back...on the Marijuana Progessive Party!
EdmundEdmund: Reebus: The same company owns both the LA and Chicago stations. There was a contract dispute about LA and the company pulled Chicago off the air as leverage. The court injunction will put them back on the air in Chicago.
ed: they'll owe money but not the whole $1 mill
cease: there actually is a marijuana party in canada
Merlyn: we got ed and eded

canadian_patriot2000: The guy on the program sounds like he IS more suited for the Art Bell Show
Woody One: Don't know danger but am familiar with regnad kcin
Dyp Phong: I'm Left Handed in a right winged world.......
EdmundEdmund: The announcer for Pinxav sounds amazingly like TV's Frank from MST3K

Merlyn: It's the name of the group. If you want samples of their albums, try www.firesigntheatre.com/

InflatableTweeny: Ah, Clem.
Woody One: or slatine
PDB Fong: o even slatern
cease: yeah the first was MUCH better. and also faithful to the book, one of my alltime faves by Anybody
cease: when uk came to vancouver to a writers conference, she said she was consciously trying to write a PK Dick book with that.
cease: and did a much better job than almost all of his
EdmundEdmund: The first mostly just suffered from a low budget, but other than that, yes. It was very close to the book. I met Ursula a couple of times because her daughter went to Indiana University when I was a kid.
cease: wow
PDB Fong: No more Lathe of God though...he's outsorced those jobs
Woody One: My brother went to IU
InflatableTweeny: Am I U?

PDB Fong: Ilan: At the beginning
EdmundEdmund: Ilanwydd: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep
Woody One: who am us anywho?
cease: the only sf writer i've ever met was spider robinson, who's fun but not in the same talent galaxy as uk
EdmundEdmund: One of his most famous books and for good reason.
InflatableTweeny: Who is we?
cease: good flick, at least pk thought. but the book was WAY better.
Dyp Phong: Why, we're just like you ....and you and maybe them!
Mudhead: Theres a fight on TV...oh wait, its a hockey game
cease: i think the best thing ever written about religion, which is totallyabsent from the flick
Dr. Headphones: ah, i go to bathroom and to get more coffee and i fade to near nothingness.... such is life
cease: old joke, i went to a fight and a hockey game broke out
klokwkdogInRI: I don't recommend that anyone but men read PKD; it's incredibly sexist; sometimes annoys even me
||||||||| Catherwood ushers BuckFush into the room, accepts a grimy quarter as a gratuity, mumbles something about 9:44 PM, then departs.
Woody One: but still funny
Dyp Phong: All things must pass, phones..

cease: philip k. dick, dont remember what the k is for
Merlyn: dr 'phones, you need your cat to walk on your keyboard while you're gone
Dr. Headphones: wb, BF
PDB Fong: Phillip K Dick, Sci-fi author
cease: the name of this radio show is a riff on his short story "minority report"
Woody One: five wives is definintely an enormous problem
Bessie: o, ok
EdmundEdmund: I don't remember PKD being all that sexist... his attitudes were pretty standard for the time he was writing them (the late 50s and early 60s)
Merlyn: at once?
Dr. Headphones: merl: there's a program you can buy to stop that, never bookmarked it though, so can't refer you
cease: my kittens were walking on my keys an hour ago. will do so again when they wake up
Merlyn: yeah, I know phones.
PDB Fong: Klok: How you doing with that giant dog?
Merlyn: but if you pull down the "I'm Away" flag, you don't fade
EdmundEdmund: I mean, it's like saying that Shakespeare was sexist... unfortunately, women were simply not viewed the way they should have been at that point.
cease: the flick of that was actually pretty good, inspite of speilburg, cruise
Woody One: like naked
klokwkdogInRI: giant dog is out on the deck. I'll have to go deal with it if it threatens to break the slider.
cease: klok, you have giant dog and kittens too?
EdmundEdmund: Yeah, the movie of Minority Report was not bad.
Dyp Phong: Cease, tell them cats to write something you can use
||||||||| Outside, the 9:47 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving andie coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
cease: it captured pkd's insight into advertising very well
klokwkdogInRI: I bought some Frosty Paws with some of the contingency money and have been using them when it really gets beserk
Merlyn: I've heard movies use about the first chapter of PKD books
Bessie: where is everyone from in here?
Merlyn: hey andie
InflatableTweeny: Well, you have to feed it something, don't ya?

Merlyn: in England?
PDB Fong: What exit =)
cease: my 2 fave stories by anyone are Faith of Our Fathers (a kind of alternate mao) and The Electric Ant, very reminiscent of an old twilight zone
EdmundEdmund: Total Recall was based on a PKD Story in the same way that Slayer is based on Elvis Presley soungs.
Dr. Headphones: i've been to jersey, damned deer jumped on my car there, almost totalled it
Dyp Phong: I'm from Elmertown
Mudhead: Im in New London, CT

Dr. Headphones: hi bac
InflatableTweeny: Air America uses Real.

ah,clem: ou mean the chin chillas?
EdmundEdmund: klok, try preserves.
PDB Fong: Ah a trifecta Reap
EdmundEdmund: When my chin gets chilla I grow a beard.
Merlyn: scything them down
klokwkdogInRI: nah, hate all the bits of real fruit in that, EE
cease: mutant blue
Dyp Phong: one swoop of the sickle..
PDB Fong: Scthes and whispers
ah,clem: right ED, mine is growing long as well
EdmundEdmund: Yes klok, but with a name like smucker's...
klokwkdogInRI: oh gad, now the Scythians are showing up. Back to Persia, infidels!
EdmundEdmund: Mine has ceased to grow since I shaved it off... Odd that really.
Bubbas Brine: BRB... got a few things to do...
||||||||| Bubbas Brine leaves at 10:31 PM, singing "Oh, I'm just a little fishy, floating in the sea, and there ain't no hook that's smart enough to catch the likes of me..."
llanwydd: You shaved off your chin!
cease: i'm not losing mine in this lifetime
Dyp Phong: Another Salty Dog!
klokwkdogInRI never dealt with anything but Knott's Berry Farm Season's Select preserves for yeer and yeers, Dex
PDB Fong: Wearing a HOmburg too
ah,clem: mine to almost 6" (going for the ZZ look.
EdmundEdmund: It's odd, but there seems to be some strange correlation between my scraping my face with a razor-sharp blade on a daily basis and my beard no longer growing.
EdmundEdmund: The ZZ look is the tops.
klokwkdogInRI looks horrible in a beard, but that didn't stop him from trying
llanwydd: makes sense ed
PDB Fong: EE: If you keep the beard in a jar of hair oil, it will continue to grow
llanwydd: I haven't shaved in years. I don't know if I still have a chin
klokwkdogInRI: ZZ Top playing TX blues fest with Clapton this summer; BFD w/BB King, etc.
EdmundEdmund: Too late. In fact, for extra measure I decided to shave the hair on the top of my head too.
PDB Fong: Ilan: Don't you have to ocassionaly shave when you're acting?
Dyp Phong: Acting in Real Life?
ah,clem: full fat untrimmed beard, scares everybody (they mistake me for a "head doctor")
klokwkdogInRI: it's like the swords they use, Dex, the razors are all dull and rubber
EdmundEdmund: Isn't that all that's on TV anymore, Phong?\
llanwydd: I never have since about 1997 actually
PDB Fong: Ilan: Shaved or acted?
Dyp Phong: TV or Not TV?
llanwydd: I do a lot of Shakespeare and the beard fits right in
EdmundEdmund: Just do what I do and only act by doing voice overs and you don't even have to shower.
ah,clem: cool LL
PDB Fong: Ilan: Prolly wont get Romeo part though
Reebus_Kaneebus: I do voiceovers.
klokwkdogInRI: Only one guy in Forbidden Planet had a beard, Ilan, so it's not universal truth
Reebus_Kaneebus: It's a dirty job but someone has to do it.
llanwydd: I'm too old for some parts I'd love to play
EdmundEdmund: Fun, isn't it?
EdmundEdmund: And look what happened to him, klok.
Dyp Phong: I have voices in my head, no waiting.
klokwkdogInRI: rent a double, become an agent, Ilan
PDB Fong: Some of my parts are too old to play also
Reebus_Kaneebus: I did a comedy series in the 70's and 80's
cease: i'm in need of voices, actually
klokwkdogInRI: LOL
Dyp Phong: or is that the headphones?
klokwkdogInRI doesn't hear the voices any more
PDB Fong sings I wanna be sedated
klokwkdogInRI: except...tonight! Thanks, Skybird!!
EdmundEdmund: Cat: I'm always happy to do voices for you. Check out my demo: http://www.everyonesvoice.com
Dyp Phong: I've been post dated for freshness..
klokwkdogInRI: hell, no! I just said 'no' to drugs!

Merlyn: I thought it was "say know to drugs"
PDB Fong: turning blue over you?
klokwkdogInRI bought organic beef tonight -- no Go Mad By date on the package

klokwkdogInRI: he's gone now, poor bugger
PDB Fong: Take 'em over there
klokwkdogInRI: yes, a lot of them and not very many of us...
PDB Fong: Tried Swimming to Iraq from the Staten Island Ferry
cease: you here that song about balding bergman, from the nyc show?
Dyp Phong: We're bringing the war back home!
PDB Fong: Didn't check the tide tables
klokwkdogInRI: some kind of Blue Crush tribute?
||||||||| EdmundEdmund leaves at 10:41 PM, singing "Oh, I'm just a little fishy, floating in the sea, and there ain't no hook that's smart enough to catch the likes of me..."
||||||||| Outside, the 10:41 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving EdmundEdmund coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
EdmundEdmund: That was odd.
EdmundEdmund: Can anyone see me?
EdmundEdmund: Oh there
klokwkdogInRI: well, the tide has turned now! we're bringing the war back home!
EdmundEdmund: I can see me now.

PDB Fong: EE did the ever difficult re-entry, degree of difficulty 4.7
EdmundEdmund: Did you get my private message, Cat?
Merlyn: It looks like you may have hit the exit button accidentally
EdmundEdmund: No, I did that intentionally
klokwkdogInRI has littel innate musical knowledge, only that amplified by aforementioned all-music guide
EdmundEdmund: Because I thought it would be best if I restarted.
cease: yes, ed.
