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 22, 2004 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, April 22, 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?"
||||||||| Outside, the 9:08 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving Merlyn coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Merlyn: Catherwood's watch is way off now...
||||||||| Outside, the 9:16 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving llanwydd coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
llanwydd: I find it hard to believe there is really no one here
Merlyn: hey llan
Merlyn: hey!
llanwydd: howdy merl
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "9:17 PM and late as usual, it's Petits-MEMElaine-klok, just back from Billville."
Merlyn: waiting to post a notice...
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: I find it hard to believe there is really no one here

Dexter Fong: Hi Merlyn
cease: lets hope so
Dexter Fong: Klok: I'm a speed glancer, thats all the time I need
Merlyn: hi fong
llanwydd: You know what, I dropped out of MOB after the first read-through. Never done that before but I didn't like the play or the character.
cease: i just heard them joking about canada on majority report a few minutes ago
Petits-MEMElaine-klok (sings) "Alllll I hear is Radio Adlib..."
Petits-MEMElaine-klok wishes he had all the time he needs ('cause he'd outshine Stephen Hawking in imagining how much)
Dexter Fong )aside) methinks Klok speaks of Dark Matters
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: hey, Cat, Canuk accountants got to shine in NYT last weak, eh? I sent the link to Ken; he should be prowd
||||||||| Bubba's Brain waltzes in at 9:25 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'Dr. Headphones', just granted probation at 9:25 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
llanwydd: dark matter has much gravity
Dr. Headphones: hello, dear friends
Dexter Fong: Hi Bubba and Kend^
Bubba's Brain: Hey all.
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: spreak of Der Teufel...
Dr. Headphones: klok married elaine?

Dr. Headphones: yeah, cat, figuring out how to rape while calling it consensual sex
Petits-MEMElaine-klok notes there is a fancy moon over RI tonight
Bubba's Brain: Hey Cat --- just hit me that I haven't emailed you yet to order CDs. I've thought about it everyt day, for about 30 seconds each day.... string em together, I'd get something done.
Merlyn: Anyone looking for a new car? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2475019485

Bubba's Brain: Nope, no car needed here.....
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: comes with free coke spoons on every seat, eh?
||||||||| Catherwood leads Political Purulent inside, makes a note of the time (9:28 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
cease: that was the most goonish of the magic mushroom plays
Political Purulent: Howdy All

Bubba's Brain: He's looking for a job-type job.
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: you sailed with the Portuguese Navy, Ilan?
llanwydd: some portuguese.
Dr. Headphones: portugues and welch sounds like a wonderful combo
Political Purulent: Jobs for Industry,...Jobs for the unemployed!
||||||||| Catherwood escorts Charles Foster Dudley in through the front door at 9:32 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
Bubba's Brain: Jobs for Indians!
Charles Foster Dudley: Smells like a dead cat in here!
Dexter Fong: Hi Charles
Political Purulent: HEy dud
llanwydd: portugues or betelguese whatever
||||||||| hoohah enters at 9:32 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and runs off to the Haberdashery Barn.

Dr. Headphones: bad news from here: i had TWO (count 'em, two) coffee pots bite the dust this week. had to go buy a new one to feed my addiction
Dr. Headphones: hey charlie

Merlyn: not enough room to swing a dead cat soap on a rope

Political Purulent: No Dead Cat, it's the dog in drag...
Merlyn: how's your pothead brother, Hookah?
Charles Foster Dudley: G'day Y'all! Well met!
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: (thousands of Azorean Portuguese migrated/were brought to S. New England to man the whaling then fishing industry, along with African-American freemen and the remnants of the Indians -- as per the Pequot in Mobius Dick)
cease: dont bogart that hookah
Merlyn: Dr. Laura's son is opening a hookah bar
Dexter Fong: This Historic factoid brought to you by Klokwrk History
Dexter Fong: It keeps on ticking away...away...away
Dr. Headphones: klokwrk history is a trademark of USPlus (we OWN the idea of history!)
llanwydd: I cant imagine Bogart smoking a hookah
Charles Foster Dudley: Is that related to nergy clockwork films Dex?
Dexter Fong: and Exclamation points too
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: well, it'sa fact, Dex. I was bowled over by the amazing variety of Portuguese food and funny religious holidays in RI.
Bubba's Brain: Forward, Into the Past!
Political Purulent: History with no Future
Dexter Fong: Charles: It's a plausibly deniable subsidiary
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 9:36 PM and Tony steps out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: we have two Portuguese radio stations here. like the English commercial stations, they play complete top-charted dreck
Charles Foster Dudley: Whew this pig oil beer goes through ya like a hot car ...

Political Purulent: Just a little Irish Crack
llanwydd: yeah the red sausage
Charles Foster Dudley: Chinese been doing it for years Dex.
Petits-MEMElaine-klok has overcome an addiction to bulges levidos that started early on, but is otherwise still accomodating to the mainstream weirdness like bottles of vinegar at restaurants for fries and coffee milk syrup
Dr. Headphones: dex: somewhere i have a web URL for fermenting chickenshit into methane
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: yeah, big ROFL for me, Dex
Political Purulent: I'll light a match to that , Phones!
Dexter Fong: This pig oil goes thru my DeLorean like a hot car
cease: pig oil beer will be next
llanwydd: why would you want chickenshit or methane in the first place?
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: a long way from pioneers on the Overland Trail burning Ox dung, eh?
cease: i wanna do a riff on pig oil beer in my Rummy and Cokehead sketch
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: it'd be a real gas, Ilan, that's why
Dexter Fong: Methane is a combustible fuel, can be used for many things
Bubba's Brain: Wow, a chickenshit DeLorean....
Dr. Headphones: methane burns very well, easy to store under low pressure, and of course, if you like eggs or chicken meat, there's bound to be some shit involved somewhere
||||||||| It's 9:40 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| hoohah - dead from the yaws
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Political Purulent: Use the methane to fire up the BBQ for fried chicken...mmmmm
Dexter Fong: If Hank Hill says methane is good, it's good!
Dr. Headphones: chicken: cook thyself!
Bubba's Brain: Isn't there a Jewish law against that?
Political Purulent: Pulls his finger, light another BBQ
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: let's see -- we're going to turn our shit into gasoline and put a bunch of astronauts on Mars. I guess we forget cancer, AIDS, polio, clean water, etc. Oh yeah, and burn lots more coal...
cease: bbq sauce, the one magic mushroom play i have never heard, i dont think
Political Purulent: Chicken finger!
Dexter Fong: Coal?You talking about coal, Bill?
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: Lickin' good!

Dr. Headphones: ah, dex, there's a big difference between C H4 and C 3H 8

Nick N. Ame: Our father, who art pond scum
Dexter Fong: Velociraptors, the best fuel for your velocipede
Political Purulent: Don't look up to Skybird, it could be messy!
cease: after writing an uncountable number of stories since 1958, finally a story About me appeared this week
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: oh, did they up the power on that one this week? I guess with all the solar storms, they had to be sure it Gets Through
Dexter Fong: Cat: Huh?
Bubba's Brain: really, c, do tell.
llanwydd: where did it appear?
Dr. Headphones: uncountable but not yet infinite
cease: of course hanging out with another Writer on 420 does have its advantages

Petits-MEMElaine-klok: ask Lili, Ken, it's her speciality
cease: this guy flash actually has a book published. I never made it further an magazines, though i do have stories in 3 of krassner's intoxication compilations
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: she can make bash's head spin
Dave: you guys are never gonna stop with the "dave's not here thing" are ya? it's ok, just funny that I come in and someone always uses it
Nick N. Ame: Yeah, like I ain't heard that bee 4.
Charles Foster Dudley: I haven't had an "Independant Job" since the wife left town!

||||||||| Tony - dead from jaundice
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: Dave: with AOL running it? what do YOU think? (an Anne Bancroft moment)
Nick N. Ame: I was on Earth.
Political Purulent: Tony did have that shade to him...
Dave: I kissed my love and said "fuck you" to the world, just like I do every day
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: I Remember Mama...
Dexter Fong: I forgot bout Lars
Petits-MEMElaine-klok is careful about that, since sooner or later, the world fucks back...
Nick N. Ame: Still am, counter to popular opinion.

Dave: it's amusing to look back at the logs and see what an idiot I was because I talked outa my ass the whole time, sorry I'm in a cynical self-putting-down mood

Dexter Fong: Dave: It's okay, nobodies listening anyway

Dave: and I know no one's listening Dex, welcome to my life
Political Purulent: Sarcasm is the national pastime and holds great promise for the future.

Nick N. Ame: If the Dalai had taken the Snickers outta his pocket he wouldn't have been on mars, after he sat.
Dr. Headphones: klok: i wanted to climb the pyrimid of the sun just outside mexico city, looking at the top from the bottom was enough for me, didn't even have to start and look back
Dexter Fong: I going for Lympho sarcasm
cease: it's all up on line at seemreal.com, red shift
Charles Foster Dudley: Dave on skybird
Political Purulent: GO on green, shift on red and don't step on Mister Inbetween
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: gad, Ken, I missed Monday's LJ. This Raga Pahadi tune is not half bad!

Political Purulent: cornbeef dalai?
Dr. Headphones: LJ klok? the junction thing? playing indian music?

Petits-MEMElaine-klok: got partway up the rather simple path up Cadillac Mtn. in Maine in early '80s and decided it wasn't worth it
Nick N. Ame: yeowwwwllll

Petits-MEMElaine-klok: they do a lot, Ken, big audience for it at home and in the Colonies, don't you know. But this was the 10:51PM song

Bubba's Brain: Mao mao mao, mao mao mao mao mao.....
Nick N. Ame: Abstract Pork Abs
Charles Foster Dudley: Now yur talkin' the Beep Beep Song!
||||||||| Outside, the 9:57 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving Elayne coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Dr. Headphones: nash rambler?
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: canadians don't listen a lot, Ken. they seem rather thick. they were very unpleasant to us about this Iraq War thing we're in, for ezzample
Dr. Headphones: hi e

Nick N. Ame: Dali Wood Baked Maitakke Mushrooms
Dr. Headphones: klok: i still don't know the story on that one. care to share? of course, ok if you don't

Nick N. Ame: yummmmmy
cease: i've been to Akita, recently and even it doesnt weigh that much
Elayne: The park across the street has a very nice dog-run.
Bubba's Brain: Candies from Dali Madison?
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: watching dog for a friend, Ken. In reality, I'm marooned here until May
cease: maybe i can bring Icy
Nick N. Ame -)
Bubba's Brain: ... melts on the canvas, not in your hand....

Charles Foster Dudley: Someone ought to fix that clock!
Dr. Headphones: someone ought to fix that klok?
Nick N. Ame: What time is it?
cease: but happy, a daughter
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: E: this is a dog that looks at everything like a Dog Eat...run is parenthetical and simply a process in the goal of feeding face
Bubba's Brain: Its half past droop.
Nick N. Ame: It's Ed WoodStock time   http://concert.edwood.org/
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: Oh Nooooo!

Bubba's Brain: Hey, Crack kills.
Elayne: Well, I just came to see if DocTech was here, to ask him about Saturday.
Petits-MEMElaine-klok had a scary moment during a walk this week when someone let their 2 yr-old loose and she wanted to "pet the doggie". Kwd had a water skiing lesson...
Dr. Headphones: did everyone see that "reefer madness" has been re-released IN COLOR?
Elayne: I'll probably be without 'net access next Thursday (it's moving day), so I hope to see y'all in two weeks.
||||||||| Elayne departs at 10:03 PM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
Dexter Fong: See you sooner E
Charles Foster Dudley: I've been seeing it in color for years Doc!
Nick N. Ame: If Firesign Theatre tagged with Abbot and Costello against Monty Python and Burl Ives       who would win?

Dexter Fong: Ilan: Want some Adirondack Azure?
Charles Foster Dudley: I once saw Mr. Wizard explain the visuals of an acid trip when I was tripping. He made an acid machine that bent white light in the middle!
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: if you stare at a blank channel on a B&W TV (non-digital) long enough, you can actually see color flashes. There is a process to make that work on program material (simple stuff), but it scared people more than it was effective. Psycho-visual trick
Nick N. Ame: Couldn't go back to the 'average' stuff   &   couldn't stand the crowd with the buzz bombs.
cease: ives st. lorent
Bubba's Brain: I'd rather bend it on both ends...

Dexter Fong: Bend it like Beckham?
Dr. Headphones: well, fork you then!
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: but this one's been used!

Bubba's Brain: Herro Hito....
llanwydd: surrealist spoons. Cool!
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: everybody seen Carol Lay's "Persistence of Cats"?
Nick N. Ame: I remember that
Dr. Headphones: yeah, llan, but try eating raisin bran with one
Charles Foster Dudley: I had a pillow like that once ll
Woody One: Listening to All Things Firesign as we speak. Excellent stuff.
Bubba's Brain: You can't eat just one....
Dr. Headphones: nope, klok, but the two in my lap right now make me believe it's true

||||||||| Woody One leaves at 10:12 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..."
Dr. Headphones: to those wondering what klok is talking about: http://webpages.charter.net/kendeb52/flowers/flowers.html
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "10:12 PM and late as usual, it's Woody, just back from Billville."
Dexter Fong indicates to klok to just keep his thumb on the screen
Woody: Whoops!

Woody: www.subservientchicken.com
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: wow, that Hershey is really the life of the party, but isn't he starting a tad early? Or is this just 'way late from the party the night B4?
Dr. Headphones: 1970 was first one? i was senior in high school
Woody: Check that link out
Nick N. Ame: Our tulips are also in full bloom.
Woody: Type in a command for the chicken, and he'll do it.
Petits-MEMElaine-klok has a few blooms, but nothing to rival Ken's floral magnificence
Dr. Headphones: nick: those pics were taken yesterday. they are probably worse looking today. they don't last long but are pretty when they first bloom
Charles Foster Dudley: I was earning my way onto Nixon's enemies list in 1970
llanwydd: Earth Day Shoes reminded me of it. I had taken off my shoes in class and some wiseguy said "Put your shoes on. It's Earth Day".
Dr. Headphones: woody: i saw that last week. strange as hell. i tried "get naked" and got the old black box in front of him
Woody: www.subservientchicken.com

Petits-MEMElaine-klok: CFD: just about everyone still alive today was doing that ;-)
llanwydd: 18 minutes. Obvious what it's about.
Charles Foster Dudley: Hardly cuming Doc, would you do Pat?
Nick N. Ame: Basically it's Tricky Dick (in an attempt to 'reach' the kids) doing his redition of "Helter Skelter." With Halderman, Erichman, and Dean as the band.
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: cool
Dr. Headphones: hell, no, she's dead!
Dexter Fong: Sounds like an improvement Ken
Dr. Headphones: it's not 18 minuts of silence, i hope :)
Charles Foster Dudley: Neither would Dick which is why he's was soooo mean!

llanwydd: just tried the link. It takes too long. I'll try it later.
cease: I"m a Vanbased comic!
Woody: Doc? Is this an ad?
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: with a vaguely anti-American tilt, although they seem lately to have been overcome by the Evil Influence we exude against all competition...
Dexter Fong: Was't Sally Rand a Van dancer?
Nick N. Ame: WEED FM &
Dr. Headphones: woody: no, not ad, it's FREE!
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: Iliad can draw faster than you, Cat: you're outclassed

Merlyn: He was extraneous, right?
Dexter Fong: Merl: You never know
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: he's dead now, but lives on in the distorted policies of our gov't
Dr. Headphones: merl, in the grand unified theory of the cosmos, we're all extraneous
llanwydd: he was an illegal alien
Petits-MEMElaine-klok always wanted to be extraneous, so he'd be deprecated at last
Phuck Fonics a.k.a. Nick: Well, I added a new song so everyone go and listen to my feces               http://www.ic-musicmedia.com/TOR
Dexter Fong: We are stardust...
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: which grand unified theorem of the cosmos?
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: gad, more hippie stuff. when ever will it end?
Phuck Fonics a.k.a. Nick: a TOE, perhaps?
Dexter Fong puts a TOE in the water
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: let them get a TOE in and pretty soon they think they own the place
Dr. Headphones: i listen to my feces only when i have to
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: damn scientits
Phuck Fonics a.k.a. Nick: Well, a least you spellllled 'hippie' correctly.
Dr. Headphones: i do so want to read the new brian greene book
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: what's it to you?
llanwydd: I don't want a non-scientist to give me a theorum of the cosmos
cease: Yippie!
Dr. Headphones: nick: have the page open, will listen when chat is over
cease: is it better than his red book?
llanwydd: In fact I don't even want Carl Sagan to give me a theorum of the Cosmos
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: if God wanted us to have a TOE, he'd have put it in the Ten Commandments
Phuck Fonics a.k.a. Nick: Cool, Dr. Headphones
cease: ask him for a joint, llan
Dr. Headphones: i'll listen to damned near anything once. sometimes that is the only chance it gets though....
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: BTW, pretty cool interview with Neal Stephenson in Salon this week, speaking of histerical scientistes
cease: i want to read that. i want to read a lot more of Neal
Phuck Fonics a.k.a. Nick: Carl said the human race, in general, (not Firesign fans) is 500 years retarded.
llanwydd: you're right doc
Dr. Headphones: klok: i just bought "snow crash" over the weekend, haven't started reading yet though
cease: some societies much worse, nick
Phuck Fonics a.k.a. Nick: They paid Carl milllllions [but not billions] to candy-coat it.
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: maybe not persuasive enough to make me read 1700 pages of novel; sounds like another Baudolino
cease: thats the only one i read
Phuck Fonics a.k.a. Nick: My model has it 1,800 years.
Dexter Fong: When you measure the Human Race with the stop watch of the cosmos, it's 500 years retarded
||||||||| It's 10:40 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Nick N. Ame again - dead from pneumonia
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: Admiral Bob's Navy, that one killed me. Also the prescient: "Until everyone on the planet is reduced to the wages of a Pakistani brickmaker"
Phuck Fonics a.k.a. Nick: H,T. (Holy Terror the Cat) just pulled a rock outta the window. Holy Crap!
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: where's my flying car?
Merlyn: bob's your navy
Dexter Fong tried bobbing for admirals
Phuck Fonics a.k.a. Nick: Your flyin' car in in China at 2301 years
Phuck Fonics a.k.a. Nick: sorry
Phuck Fonics a.k.a. Nick: make that 2031
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: and that Reverend Jim or whoever beat Adm. Bob when they privatized the Navy and bought the carrier Enterprise to refit as his private yacht...
Phuck Fonics a.k.a. Nick: Bye, All.

Dexter Fong: Cyah Nick
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: nite nick at

Dr. Headphones: later, nick
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: Ken - that one must have auto insurance execs waking up every night in cold sweats...
Dr. Headphones: there will be a "rider" disallowing them as soon as the first one is sold. you will need aviation insurance, MUCH more expensive (and expansive, too)
Dexter Fong wonders if Al-Qada opeeratives are taking flying car lessons
cease: watching frontline, dex?
Dexter Fong: "I don't want to learn to park"
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: what was it Matt Groenig said about the future and 1939 World's Fair, etc.? That all the utopian and dystopian futures imagined never envisioned thousands of blow-in subscription cards in magazines?
Dexter Fong: No Cat: Whats on?
Dr. Headphones: no frontline here, have auctions on BOTH stinking pbs stations!
cease: son of al quada
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: dueling auctions? they are selling off both stations?
cease: he's actually a canuck. big story here
Merlyn: you don't need no stinking badgering?
Dr. Headphones: i didn't even turn either one on. i'm not in the market for their crap. last premium i got from pbs station was "weirdly cool" dvd
Dexter Fong: I saw the 1939 Worlds Fair..actually it was prolly 1940 or so, just before they cosed it
cease: i'd rather listen to maj. report, i know all this already
llanwydd: In Mexico they're called El-Quesadilla
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: gad, like The Boys From Brazil (or The Boys From San Clemente, considering tonight's theme/meme)
cease: did you see the 1963 one too?
cease: good one, llan. just some some mexican food for dinner
Dexter Fong: Yes Cat
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: now it's just flushed down the meadowlands...

Petits-MEMElaine-klok: ah, charred slices of dead pig flesh...
cease: ossman went to the 1939 san francisco fair, and it made him a worlds fair junky ever since.

Dr. Headphones: is he that old?
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: did San Francisco have a "World's"

Petits-MEMElaine-klok: Fair in '39, too?

Petits-MEMElaine-klok: hard to be 70 if born that late
cease: no, bergman in 39
cease: proc in 40, ausin in 41
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: maybe it was a reaction to "Prices slightly higher west of the Rockies". Living on the right coast, I always worried about that as a kid. What horrible danger lurked in the Rockies? SAC?
Dr. Headphones: two male cats trying to do the dirty deed on floor next to me. one on bottom is resisting, one on top is larger, he's winning
Dexter Fong: Cat: Austin in 41? yet he seems so familiar with WW2 era

Dexter Fong: lol Ken
Dr. Headphones: i threw a cd at them and they quit, ran into other room
Dexter Fong: What CD?
Dr. Headphones: generic cd-r that i made a coaster of earlier today
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: hope it was a bad CD-R, else they might do something nefarious to it...
Merlyn: was the CD mature? They're worth more
Dr. Headphones: i boo booed and tried burning an iso image without the right program, got disk with iso image on it instead of the collection of files i wanted
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: the RIAA is really getting after people about that. There's more illegal copying of Generic's CDs than even Metallica
Dr. Headphones: merl: and don't forget the penalty for early withdrawal!
Dr. Headphones: this was a bootable linux distro
Dr. Headphones: dynebolic, optimized for audio/video use
Dexter Fong: Well Dear Firend, due to an invasion of filmakers all over my neighborhood, parking will be extremely hard tonight, so I bid you all adieu

Dr. Headphones: klok: i think it was mandrake that i just plugged in my camera and it popped up on desktop as removable drive, could copy/delete from file manager
Dr. Headphones: hey yam
Guadalacaca Yamamoto: no that's Linspire
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: ...reduce the royalties to a half-cent a song and put it all out in MP3 online. Nobody will keep hard copies anymore, just pull it off the Net at a half-cent a pop. They can throw in a "once you've paid $5, you get free access for life" and performers will get more $ than they can imagine.
cease: paul krassner is doing standup in new york in a few days. i wonder if he'll be on air america
llanwydd: got mail. brb
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: I could copy/delete from file manager, but all the jpegs were crap and the flash card got corrupted. Shades of Mars Rover! I had to tell the camera to re-format it.
cease: i reccomended him to them and they'd be idiots not to have him on, particularly on this show
Guadalacaca Yamamoto: Air america? Buncha commies
Dr. Headphones: klok: did i send you the URL for making the disposable digicam non-disposable?
Guadalacaca Yamamoto: Klok: sorry

Petits-MEMElaine-klok: can't check rite now, Ken; I'm at an Away Game and have too many tabs open in the browser as it is to chk emails
cease: in the newspaper sense, merl?
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Guadalacaca Yamamoto: I wonder tif the creeps in the p[lanes an thisgovt aren't associated
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: darn gong awoke the Hound, which is rattling the slider. can't last much longer, and Cath's watch is off again
llanwydd: Rocky's? Now they've got to open Nick's Swell

Petits-MEMElaine-klok: You can read about it in that interview Bzrezenski gave to that French magazine in '97 or so. Really scary
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: thanks, Ken
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: the gist of it is included in The Dust of Empire, which is a good book otherwise (e.g. about Mossadeq overthow in '53 Iran, etc.) but you should be able to find it 1500 times over in a Google search
Dr. Headphones: zvibnev (or however you spell it) is a scary guy. not in kissinger's league as arch-demon, but perhaps a demi-demon
cease: sounds like a neil gaiman character, kend
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: I thought he was a Good Guy (in the Rustler's Rhapsody sense), Jimmy Carter, too, but now I'm unsure and uneasy
Dr. Headphones: all those "one world" people scare me
Petits-MEMElaine-klok: only took seconds -- see: http://www.counterpunch.org/brzezinski.html
Petits-MEMElaine-klok is scared too, rejecting the 1929 interpretation of the "many worlds" argument regarding the Schroedinger Equations
Dr. Headphones: lol, klok, not quite the same paradigm i was talking about :)
llanwydd: many worlds? Not familiar are we talking science or politics
