||||||||| 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 29, 2004 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Outside, the 7:58 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving Bubba's Brain coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Bubba's Brain wanders in to say that he shan't be able to be in tonight. But then again, by doing just that, he disproves himself.
||||||||| Bubba's Brain departs at 8:00 PM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Merlyn into the room, accepts a grimy quarter as a gratuity, mumbles something about 8:11 PM, then departs.
Merlyn: see ya, BB
Merlyn twiddles his thumbs
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'AirAmericaCommunity', just granted probation at 8:17 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
Merlyn: I can guess where you're from...
AirAmericaCommunity: spamming the world for AAR community, yep...
Merlyn: me too, as you saw
AirAmericaCommunity: yesp
Merlyn: couldn't they get rid of that hum on their bush bits?
AirAmericaCommunity: ha, yeah, youd think... I dont think they are very up the technical end of things yet there at AAR.
Merlyn: yeah, that's why I want Firesign Theatre on there.
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Hypestyle into the room, accepts a grimy quarter as a gratuity, mumbles something about 8:23 PM, then departs.
Hypestyle: greetings and solicitations..
Merlyn: hey HS
||||||||| musiclover2004 sneaks in around 8:24 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last week's "unpleasant incident."

||||||||| Outside, the 8:25 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving Patriot coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Merlyn: no, minnesota is pretty liberal
jose: i'm about 45 minutes north of Minneapolis/St Paul
Merlyn: around St. cloud?
jose: we have an extream right wing governor
jose: no, about halfway between duluth and the cities, on 35
Merlyn: yeah, but that's atypical
musiclover2004: Shame on any American who votes for Bush this time around. Wake up!
Hypestyle: who is the governor now that jesse ventura is gone? is he democrat or republican..
Merlyn: you can use accented characters if you want to be josé
Merlyn: Repub. Tim Pawlenty
||||||||| At 8:31 PM, AirAmericaCommunity vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
Merlyn: Hey people, say something!
Merlyn: You can use color...
jose: theres not enough people here
Hypestyle: sorry, i'm just listening to janeane and sam.. :)
Hypestyle: say, what do people think about the Christian Right?

Merlyn: you just missed a massacre...
Merlyn: hello m0
Merlyn: hmm, I hope Air America gets more real ads instead of running lots of public service announcements & plugs for their other shows...
jose: How have thier ratings been? Do we know that yet?
Merlyn: I don't think so; the only rating I've seen is the record realplayer streams for non-breaking news at 50,000 simultaneous streams and 2 million total
Merlyn: 2 million over the opening weekend or something like that
Merlyn: I don't know what the management shakeup will mean, though.

Merlyn: believe me, I've tried to convince him to use auto syncing scripts
Merlyn: game 'em an URL and everything
ah.clem: sounds scary
Dr Headphones: can't do much more than that, merl
Dr Headphones: yes, clem, it scares me when any religion starts muddling in politics or vice versa
Merlyn: yeah...
ah.clem: right
Dr Headphones: a quick joke, i had someone tell me this week that "new age" rhymes with "sewage"
ah.clem: tell 'em to cut the soles off their shoes...
Dr Headphones: i made a comment on an email list which led him to assume (wrongly) that i was a new ager. he called me a commie godless atheist and condemned me to hell for all eternity.

ah.clem: just a joke Ken,
Dr Headphones: remember, i was a baptist in a former life (before age 18)

Pocket Specie: Hi klok
Merlyn: hey kwd
Merlyn: which was bush?

klokwkdoggonit: 'lo-all
Dr Headphones: cat: of course. the vast majority in the middle fades into mediocrity
Pocket Specie: It's just those C students that blend in
Merlyn: everything floats towards C-level
Dr Headphones: i've gotta fly...and i've gotta buzz :)
klokwkdoggonit: mount a USB drive? they're kind of small, aren't they? was it good for you?
ah.clem: BBL
llanwydd: it's only the C students who go to class reunions
Merlyn: is that USB-2? That's a lot faster transfer speed
Dr Headphones: klok: nice double entendre there ;) but this one is an 80G in external enclosure
cease: this is very good
Dr Headphones: merl: yes, it's usb2, but the computer i'm using it on is only 1.1
klokwkdoggonit: nice, you built a house for your friend...
Merlyn: but it'll port to a new system
Dr Headphones: i moved data onto it from another computer with usb2 and it flew. crawls on the 1.1
klokwkdoggonit: now we are three?

klokwkdoggonit: 25 or 6 to 4
Dr Headphones: yep, specie, but won't run as quickly on old interface
klokwkdoggonit: usb is backward, period, but the hot plug capability is nice on cold nights
Dr Headphones: i found 2.0 interface card for $20 but not sure i really need it yet
llanwydd: DOGGIES!!!
Pocket Specie: Specially that Firewire
Dr Headphones: i don't hot plug on cold nights, but my waterbed IS heated
klokwkdoggonit: i'd plug in a USB 1.1 cable for a half hour or so before going to the big game on Sat.; kept my hands warm until halftime
klokwkdoggonit suspects Ken's waterbed is positively feverish
Dr Headphones: i actually saw a USB coffee mug warmer advertised a couple years ago
Merlyn: stop plugging USB, they don't pay us for free advertising
klokwkdoggonit: yeah, they discontinued those; the radiation was tainting the coffee
Dr Headphones: combine that with the built-in mug holder/cd drive and you're got a winner
Merlyn: you can get a swiss army knife with UBS memory on it
klokwkdoggonit: oh, get a CD-RW Ken!
llanwydd: what about the decaf?
klokwkdoggonit: then you can fry pancakes whilst you browse
Dr Headphones: merl: did you see the cell phone commercial with the pepper grinder in it? hilarious
Merlyn: http://www.swissinfo.org/sen/Swissinfo.html?siteSect=511&sid=4791994
klokwkdoggonit: what about the children?!
Dr Headphones: i don't do pancakes since i bought a waffle maker
Merlyn: no, headphones, what is it like?

Merlyn: maybe USB isn't as hot-pluggable as he thought
Pocket Specie: Server seems to be taking a small break
Merlyn: I'm listening to "Give Us A Break"
Dr Headphones: you deserve a break today
||||||||| Pocket Specie leaves at 9:31 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..."
cease: i have that on tape. i dont have shrub's harvard prof. very instructive
klokwkdoggonit: no, Wal-Mart has eliminated them
llanwydd: Which sketch is on, Merl. I bet I remember them all
Dr Headphones: merl, how difficult would it be to put in hot keys in this script. e.g., ctrl-i for italics, ctrl-b for bold, etc.
cease: the shrub of then was the same evil being as the current prez. who wudda thought?
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'Pocket Specie ', just granted probation at 9:32 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
klokwkdoggonit: I remember Mama, life with father
Merlyn: impossible; that's browser/OS specific

klokwkdoggonit: all propaganda churned out by Chet Huntley

Dr Headphones: taint as bad as you think it is.....
Dr Headphones: MORE SUGAR!
klokwkdoggonit: won't be a tycoon

Pocket Specie : Just another C student from Yale..
Dr Headphones: cat: frontline at 10pm (est) about dubya and xtian right
klokwkdoggonit wonders if Bush remembers being a student
Dave: I'm lost in my own fucked up world, hardly pay attention anymore
klokwkdoggonit: as Bil Maher put it last night, "He was drunk until he was 40"
Pocket Specie : Daddy bought him that C and all the others
klokwkdoggonit: Bill
Dr Headphones: dave, if it's your world, you can't get lost. you draw the map

cease: not unlike astrology
Atomic Gumshoe: hello?

klokwkdoggonit: part of the theory, Ilan, is that Venus did a lot of moving around, as documented in the Old Testament
Dr Headphones: yes, gumshoe, talk to us! any subject at all, we will ridicule you for it regardless ;)
Dexter Fong: Herro Gumshoe
Atomic Gumshoe: Okay
Dr Headphones: ok, dear friends, i have a date with the television set, will return after 11 or next week, whichever comes first
klokwkdoggonit: also that it was hot enough there to melt tin when most scientists believed it was earthlike, just 'way cloudy
Dexter Fong: Look out Ken
klokwkdoggonit: cu Ken
cease: ok, kend. i'll watch that show later
Merlyn: venus was unto like a billiard ball, contrary to all laws of physics
llanwydd: I've read the Old Testament. Why don't I remember anything about Venus?
Atomic Gumshoe: This thing Freezes if I kick Sjybird on
klokwkdoggonit has hound-minding app't inviolate near 11 will also b bak
Dr Headphones: g'night
||||||||| Dr Headphones leaves at 10:09 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..."
Atomic Gumshoe: Gbye Ken
Atomic Gumshoe: bah
klokwkdoggonit: because it looked like the Sun, Ilan -- it was really close when it went by
Merlyn: clem is gone, so I updated the skybird topic
Specie's Return: Bye Phones
cease: the mayas were REally into Venus
Merlyn: I'll guess it has 15 minutes left to go...
klokwkdoggonit: some battle when the sun went down, came back up, frightened the enemy, but the Israelites knew about it in advance
Atomic Gumshoe: I'm Yamamoto btw
Dexter Fong: Mayas *are* from Venus...Incas from Mars
klokwkdoggonit: what happened was that Venus did a close pass and messed up Earth's rotation/spin, something like that
Dexter Fong: OI OI
klokwkdoggonit: it's a very nice city
cease: no, Aztecs are from Mars. that's where they vacation
Merlyn: I see, an imposter
Atomic Gumshoe: Oi indeed
llanwydd: Fascinating! You know something. I've seen old paintings where the moon seems to take up half the night sky. Maybe it used to be closer
Dexter Fong: Cat: I thought they were from the Dog Star
klokwkdoggonit: it did, but it's receding
Merlyn: no, velikovsky is bunk
Atomic Gumshoe: Or no sense of perspective
klokwkdoggonit: something about Chemlawn
cease: my dog has a star? he's big enough to distort its gravity
Atomic Gumshoe: I have a new cat
klokwkdoggonit: he wishes, Cat
Dexter Fong: Cat: He's a white giant
Merlyn: people still think the moon looks much larger than it is. You can cover it with a dime held at arm's length
Atomic Gumshoe: Or a red Dwarf
Dexter Fong: Merl: Unless its very low in the sky
klokwkdoggonit: depends on where you are, Merlyn
Merlyn: or Rimmer
Atomic Gumshoe: Or Lister
Merlyn: you can cover it with a dime bag
Atomic Gumshoe: Or a new Cat
Dexter Fong: Is this your bag, Dr. Lister?
klokwkdoggonit: in geosync. orbit, I think they need a nickel. that's why all the communications satellites are so expensive. they have to use all that nickel...
Atomic Gumshoe: No
Specie's Return: How abou a Dwarf President? Easily crushed with a pair of Liars...
klokwkdoggonit: how about a troika? Kerry, Bush and Nader
Atomic Gumshoe: Plenty of those to be found these daze
Dave: brb
||||||||| Dave says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, Dave exits at 10:14 PM.
klokwkdoggonit: or Hillary, Katherine Harris and Karen Hughes
Atomic Gumshoe: Don't crush taht Dwarf, Hand me the Samovar!
klokwkdoggonit wishes he could afford a good samovar
Specie's Return: Rock, Paper and Shears in a tight race
llanwydd: That's a nadir. That's a pun
Dexter Fong: Nader is tryng to punish us
Specie's Return: Better than getting a Melvin
Merlyn: If he wants to punish us, he can host Saturday Night Live again
cease: good one, merl
klokwkdoggonit: Nader? Who else? We're well into the fifth act of The Trials of Job here. Sheesh!
klokwkdoggonit: I voted to stay an American, not join some friggin' S&M club...
cease: interesting thing about cheney-enron-taliban cabal on maj report now
cease: looks like i have to visit your country again in may. what a bummer
klokwkdoggonit: can you get a visa now, Cat?
Specie's Return: Crossing our designer border, cease!
cease: not by choice, return
Merlyn: tell them you're smuggling drugs to old people
Specie's Return: running illegal Sugar across the border...hmmm?
Merlyn: it's the fatcats vs. the bigwigs
Merlyn: the bigwigs defeated the hoity-toity back in the 50's
Dexter Fong: My money's on the fancy-pants
llanwydd: Sugar? Who do you think you are? Fidel Castro?
Merlyn: what about the hoi-polloi?
cease: not that far off. ailing parents. they, or their insurance can afford drugs, but still....
Merlyn: and where are the hotshots?
Dexter Fong: what about the sans culottes
Specie's Return: More five cent cigars, maybe?
cease: cut off your shoes and learn to play the flute
Merlyn: I hate getting sans in my culottes
klokwkdoggonit: who was the last bigwig? Priscilla Presley or who? Cher?
Dexter Fong: Lannie Kazan
Dexter Fong: ..or Harvey Fierstein
Merlyn: Trump?
Dexter Fong: You're fired?
||||||||| Bone-E-Boi sneaks in around 10:23 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last week's "unpleasant incident."
klokwkdoggonit: I hate Bridge
Dexter Fong: Oh Boi!
Specie's Return: Trump no spade, then deal!
klokwkdoggonit: welcome BeB
Specie's Return: Hey Bone
Bone-E-Boi: Is the clock actually telling accurate time?
klokwkdoggonit has forgotten just how good this album is
Dexter Fong: Nope
Specie's Return: somewhere in space the clock is true
Bone-E-Boi: It isn't? That's a relief!
klokwkdoggonit: yeah, on Venus maybe BeB
Merlyn: Clock is about 1/2 hour ahead
klokwkdoggonit has been researching how to hack an alarm clock to run on Mars time
cease: hey bone. are you in la?
Atomic Gumshoe: I have a program for mars time on my Palm
klokwkdoggonit: lala ward land?
klokwkdoggonit: batteries don't last as long, gum
cease: must make palm reading difficult, atomic
Dexter Fong heads off for a refill
||||||||| Outside, the 10:26 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving ah,clem coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
klokwkdoggonit: maketh my Palm to lie down on still wassers?
Merlyn: hey clem, is Electrician still going?
llanwydd: just got a message that said "this item can not be used"
cease: but you can listen to the dalai lama all the time
Bone-E-Boi: Charlie McCarthy. Did you know that Charlie Manson was actually trying to kill Candace Bergman's boyfriend when he invaded Sharon Tate's home?
klokwkdoggonit: just ended
llanwydd: but I clicked it off and now there's no trouble
ah,clem: just finishing now
Bone-E-Boi: CandICE Bergman. Ice berg man.
Merlyn: ok clem
klokwkdoggonit: then it MUST be new, Ilan!
Atomic Gumshoe: http://marsclock.sourceforge.net/
Bone-E-Boi: The Icebergman Cometh.
Specie's Return: Yeah, and the Aztecs invented the vacation, too
ah,clem: just poped in to say hi and reset banner, Merl, see ya,
Merlyn: ok clem, se ya
cease: by ah
ah,clem: night all
Merlyn: did you pope in in your popemobile?
Bone-E-Boi: This Charlie Manson/ Charlie McCarthy thing will haunt me forever. The Bergman connection.
Specie's Return: Later on, clem
||||||||| 10:29 PM -- ah,clem left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
klokwkdoggonit: the palm needs batteries too often. cheap alarm clocks run on 1 'AA' battery for a year
Merlyn: No Communion for you!
llanwydd: Manson didn't go into the Tate house, Bone
Bone-E-Boi: Is this thing on?
Dexter Fong: Is this thing on what?
Bone-E-Boi: No, he was a real control freak. You'd better watch out for Charlie's girls.
klokwkdoggonit: they also have lower power since the osc. is 32 KHz only. plus they can use precision watch crystals which are quite accurate and cheep.
Specie's Return: he icropo orking, ere
cease: beavis and butthead go the principla's office, good metaphor
Bone-E-Boi: Candice Bergman's boyfriend was Doris Day's son.
Dexter Fong: Dennis Day?
klokwkdoggonit: i always worried about that "detective agency" Townsend was running
Merlyn: Geraldo Rivera used to be Kurt Vonnigut Jr's son-in-law
Bone-E-Boi: He was a record producer who had promised to make Charlie a star.
Dexter Fong: The Won't get Fooled Again Agency
cease: scary, merl
Merlyn: but not now
llanwydd: going for a cough of cuppee. brb
Bone-E-Boi: Manson, that is. Not McCarthy.
cease: fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, wont get fooled again
klokwkdoggonit: Who?
Dexter Fong: Thanks you Mr President
cease: your shrub is endlessly inventive in his language
klokwkdoggonit: ah, slack guitar?
Atomic Gumshoe: The Mars Flies
Dexter Fong: Gloriously inarticulate
Atomic Gumshoe: http://www.giss.nasa.gov/tools/mars24/
Specie's Return: Fool me three times and I'm looking for the fourth
klokwkdoggonit: how can that be, considering his vocabulary?
Atomic Gumshoe: The Time on Mars Flying
Bone-E-Boi: I promised Charlie McCarthy that I'd make him a rock and roll star. And I fully intend to keep my promise.
Atomic Gumshoe: I heard Bush Is multilingual
klokwkdoggonit: yeah, I looked at that one before, GUM. but so far, for the power, the cheap alarm clock looks like the best approach
Atomic Gumshoe: or a cheap Palm
Specie's Return: He can also tie both left and right shoe
Dexter Fong: I had a cheap date with a Date Palm
Bone-E-Boi: One slip, and kiss your dreams goodbye. No second chance...
Atomic Gumshoe: To each other
Dexter Fong: Together again
llanwydd: trouble on my screen. I'm going to try coming back on with a different name
Specie's Return: tapdance and play the drums
Dexter Fong: Try one we can pronouce Ilan
klokwkdoggonit: just interrupt the pulser that clicks the second hand gear using a pseudo-random bit string to slow it down to the base spec. on the NASA page. I'm not going to worry about Civil Twilight and rotational tilt and seasons and all that crap too.
klokwkdoggonit: I can get the alarm clock for $2.99, GUM
Specie's Return: How about the Fudge factor in a chocolate factory?
||||||||| Outside, the 10:36 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving bill barnstormer coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
bill barnstormer: this is better
Merlyn: bill, are you llan?
klokwkdoggonit: it's a sticky question, Specie
Dexter Fong: Hi Bill, or Il
Merlyn: should I kill llan, or kill bill
bill barnstormer: I'm llanwydd
Merlyn: why didn't you log out?
klokwkdoggonit: bitter, batter or better?
||||||||| Merlyn aka 'The Reaper' has killed off llanwydd at 10:36 PM
Atomic Gumshoe: Klok, can't argue w/that
Bone-E-Boi: In retrospect, I think The Wall was about Phil Spector. That movie Magic with Anthony Hopkins in it must have been about Charlie McCarthy.
klokwkdoggonit: wanted to watch himself go
Specie's Return: This is Elmertown, Bill
Atomic Gumshoe: How wouldja slow down the seconds?
bill barnstormer: I can't log out
Dexter Fong: Looks like a clear cut solution
Merlyn: no exit button?
bill barnstormer: not nice of you to kill me Merl
Atomic Gumshoe: The Satre Chat room
klokwkdoggonit: put a micro in power down. interrupt it out with the 1-second pulse drive from the original circuit, then farble that with a long bit table
Specie's Return: right click, Back?
Dexter Fong: Satre Merde?
Atomic Gumshoe: Sorry
bill barnstormer: no exit button
Atomic Gumshoe: bad spelling, Meet Bad typing
klokwkdoggonit: most of the time, you get a pulse in, send one out. occasionally, you drop one. in the long run, the clock keeps Mars time
Merlyn: that's weird; is it always like that for you?
Atomic Gumshoe: Ok I think I uderstand tat
Atomic Gumshoe: that
Specie's Return: No where to go and all night to look for the Sugar
bill barnstormer: first time, Merl
klokwkdoggonit: you can then re-flash the sequence to trim the timekeeping to account for the crystal being off or the sequence being off
Merlyn: ok, I won't worry about it...
Bone-E-Boi: There is a Firesign connection here, sort of. Jack Nicholson co-authored Head. He also starred in several movies with Candice Bergman.
klokwkdoggonit: it's like an AC wall clock - it's not that accurate in the short run, but the power company counts AC cycles so that over a month or more, the suckers are just about dead on to something like 4th-removed NBS atomic clock accuracy
Specie's Return: I've always been a little off, half a bubble off of plum or a pair
Bone-E-Boi: Bergman, Bergman... Can the name be a coincidence?
klokwkdoggonit: of course, now, you can get an "atomic clock" for $8 that picks up the radio signal from NBS directly
Bone-E-Boi: Hm. Yes, I suppose it could.
Dexter Fong: Inbred Bergman?
bill barnstormer: Isn't it Bergen?
Bone-E-Boi: You're right!
cease: but real truth is unavailable at any price
Atomic Gumshoe: Give it some reds, the atomic clock and maybe it would run mars time
bill barnstormer: Inbred! LOL
Bone-E-Boi: Give the man a cheroot.
Dexter Fong: Mystery solved
Specie's Return: What about a conspiracy?
Dexter Fong: I game
Dexter Fong: I'm game
klokwkdoggonit: you could try, GUM. Here's the cheep one: http://www.softwareandstuff.com/CES10290.html
Dexter Fong: I will have gamed
Bone-E-Boi: I'm just desperately trying to think of something, anything to say about FST.
cease: is it that hard, boney?
klokwkdoggonit: we've been hitting them good tonight so far, BeB
Dexter Fong: Cat: Please!!
klokwkdoggonit: would help if the FST on Skybird resumed
cease: i think there must be some firesign stuff that would be perfect on this show
Specie's Return: We could all shave our heads and name ourselves Bergman..?
bill barnstormer: Ever heard "Give Us a Break" Bone?
Atomic Gumshoe: Ken Tech?
cease: i heard janeane quoting firesign this week. so why not the real thing?
bill barnstormer: or give us a bone break
klokwkdoggonit: the more radioactive wall-sized virgin is here GUM: http://www.softwareandstuff.com/CES10289.html
Merlyn: cat, you mean dept of redundancy dept, or something else?
klokwkdoggonit: and do religious allegory films, Specie?
Bone-E-Boi: What should we carve in our foreheads?
Dexter Fong: A third eye
cease: yes, merl
Bone-E-Boi: Yin yangs?
klokwkdoggonit: we could call ourselves the Seventh Sealed Calvary and annoy AA until they give FST an 'in'
klokwkdoggonit: already got that in the back of my head, Dex
cease: klok, i thought ausitn said they were in negotiation
Bone-E-Boi: We're celebrating our bad karma.
klokwkdoggonit: another one and I'd start to feel like the Mars Rover
klokwkdoggonit: Is he in Fallujah, too, Cat?
Dexter Fong: Klok: Wondered why you always wore your hair in an upsweep
Specie's Return: allegator in allegory,.. next film at eleven..
cease: is that further out than the carl rover?
klokwkdoggonit: beyond the Mission Spec, Cat. Way out there...
bill barnstormer: Would you believe I'm right outside of Vermont and I can't get this liberal radio show?
Merlyn: you can stream it...
Dexter Fong: Carl Rover easy to follow...leaves a slime trail
klokwkdoggonit: you should watch those briefings; they really get their rocks off
cease: ask this ben guy to buy a station and put it on
Bone-E-Boi: My favorite celebrity spelling error is Barbara Feldman. Those eyes... weird.
bill barnstormer: I don't think I can stream anything with webtv

Dexter Fong: WB Bill/Il
klokwkdoggonit: she was olllld
Merlyn: ah.... now can I kill bill? Do I have to pay royalties?
klokwkdoggonit: hot stuff; won $64K question back in the '50s didn't she?
Dexter Fong: No Merl...it's an homage
llanwydd: good one merl
klokwkdoggonit: we're going to let them sue us, Merlyn
klokwkdoggonit: settle for half or something
Specie's Return: Could pick up stick and move to Elmertown instead
klokwkdoggonit looks at the picture and does not understand (which is not unusual)
Merlyn: me too neither, kwd
klokwkdoggonit: hound baying against slider; not a Good Sign, speaking of signage
||||||||| Catherwood leads doctec inside, makes a note of the time (10:51 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Dexter Fong: Hi Doc

doctec: hi gang
Specie's Return: howdy doc

doctec: sorry i'm running late - had a pool session with my buddy al
Dexter Fong: Be sure to towel off good
Bone-E-Boi: All three faces, doctec?
Specie's Return: Did ya get wet?
cease: how goes the pool,doc
klokwkdoggonit laments he doesn't even have a jacuzzi...
doctec: and i'm rapidly running out of gas but wanted to at the very least poke my head in as it were
Atomic Gumshoe: Swimming in the Gene Pool w/ Dr Slicer again?
Merlyn: note to doc and all: I've beefed up the search functions for chat logs, the mindless fellowship pavilion, the billville guestbook, and the front page keyword: input
Specie's Return: sink your balls in the water??
Dexter Fong: Klok: Put that Akita in the tub with you
klokwkdoggonit: he's having a ball, no doubt
doctec: my pool shooting has improved a little of late
Atomic Gumshoe: that was supposed to be "Splicer"
klokwkdoggonit: sheesh, i'm going to need a convalescent one shortly, Ash
Merlyn: Now the searches understand regexps, and you can use google instead, and if you don't pick a valid keyword, the front page shows a google search of firesigntheatre.com
klokwkdoggonit: got rid of the competition, eh?
Merlyn: lotsa free time
Specie's Return: sunk two battleships and one rubber duck?
klokwkdoggonit: ;-)
doctec: wow merl, that sounds fantastic
cease: the legend of fats domino will be replaced with the legend of doc
Bone-E-Boi: Snorkel snooker.
klokwkdoggonit makes up regexps in his spare time in order to annoy less-than-perfect implementations
Merlyn: nobody ever uses them, though.
llanwydd: by fats domino do you mean minnesota fats/
doctec: they never come up into the hills?
Atomic Gumshoe: Lucy Sez "Hello"
llanwydd: or Waller/
||||||||| Merlyn aka 'The Reaper' has killed off bill barnstormer at 10:55 PM
Specie's Return: A search for nowhere, a good place to go.
Merlyn: Kill Bill part 1
klokwkdoggonit only uses them when Something Big has to be done; the ability seems to fade like last nite's dream if it isn't used frequently
cease: been feeding cats. how's it going?
Dexter Fong: Cats look healthy
Specie's Return: Let hungry cats eat.
klokwkdoggonit: doing the Sigfried and Roy thing, Cat?
cease: i hope that's not true in la, doc

Atomic Gumshoe: cat

Bunnyboy: lo dere
Dexter Fong: Cat: He has a new cat, cat
cease: new cat?
Merlyn: my keyboard has two shiftys
cease: i've had these kittens for 2 weeks now
Dexter Fong: Hey Bunny and shifty
doctec: lili and i saw kill bill vol 2 the weekend after it was released - we rented the dvd of vol 1 to refresh our memories re the story and characters
cease: hey bunny, shifty
llanwydd: hi bunny
Specie's Return: don't take the tag off the cat , Gum,.. it's illegal and painful for the cat
klokwkdoggonit: the cat in the road was facing down a racoon about 4X its size, Cat. amazing. or maybe the racoon was bored
Bunnyboy: Ambushed by a QWERTY Sidewinder!
doctec: we both loved vol 2 - much more character driven, more of the back story behind all the chop socky and blood'n'guts of vol 1
Dexter Fong: Racoon was laughing
doctec: hi bb
klokwkdoggonit: well, the car kind of outclassed both of them, and I had someplace to Be...
Bunnyboy: The elder Bros. Carradine are both kicking butt recently, in KILL BILL and DEADWOOD, respectively.
Dexter Fong: This is ETAIN SHRDLU, come in QWERTY
doctec: hey bb - saw that audiomidi.com is running a native instruments special - a 'best of' software package for around $550 - good thru end of may

klokwkdoggonit: it's kind of strange that Stony Lane was so quiet at 8:40 PM, though. Weird. Maybe there is Something Bad going to happen here...
doctec: reaktor 4, absynth 2, pro-52, b4, fm7, and others
doctec: all in one package
Merlyn: was it rocky raccoon?
Bunnyboy: I wasn't here last week, but saw in the transcript that Ken mentioned the colorized REEFER MADNESS.
Specie's Return: Gumshoe walks quietly into the west
klokwkdoggonit: LOL, Merlyn
doctec: reaktor 4 alone is something like 400 bucks so this sounds like an amazing deal
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
llanwydd: Let's see. Who hasn't shown up here tonight. Just Bambi and Elayne
klokwkdoggonit: yeah, Ted Turner did that right after The Wizard of Oz, didn't he?
Bunnyboy: The disc is fun. Colorization is a much more sophisticated tech, nowadays.
doctec: elayne's probably in the last throes of the move to the new digs
Dexter Fong: Elayne will be absent for at least the next 2 weeks due to moving and having to re-eastblish DSL connection
Merlyn: doc, let's get byron to reset the clock again (and maybe install a sync script)
Bunnyboy: That said, I still think some titles should be off limits, i.e. CITIZEN KANE, CASABLANCA, et al.
klokwkdoggonit: I like what Turner said, that people could choose.
doctec: i wish i could have helped out last weekend but i had commited that time to helping someone else with a music project over a month ago
doctec: merl: i'll mention it to him
klokwkdoggonit: gad, DSL is so nasty about setup
Dexter Fong: Doc: There wasn't all that much to do so don't fret
Merlyn: ok doc
llanwydd: I'd love to see Birth of a Nation colorized.
klokwkdoggonit: where's lili? lili hasn't been here tonight
doctec: dex: thanks i appreciate knowing that
Bunnyboy: And the techs who produced Da Colored Reefuh said they approached the project like an animated comic book.
Dexter Fong: Ilan: Lot's of coloreds in BoN
doctec: lili is at her place and i am at mine

Bunnyboy: Hence, a few primary "spikes", and lovely green and pink smoke FX.
llanwydd: I didnt' mean that dex
Dexter Fong: Who was Specie, does anyone know?
Merlyn waves at fishy in sea
klokwkdoggonit: speaking of which, the slider won't last much longer. gotta go for a walk, I think
cease: how is lili, doc?
doctec: she is still looking for work, also not feeling 100% at the moment - slept in most of the day, she is on a roll taking care of household chores so we agreed i should stay home tonight and let her continue with that
cease: good for the roll
llanwydd: I saw BoaN on a big screen twice
cease: i really think this is the best aa show. best guests, anyway
doctec: lland: how about 'intolerance'? ever seen that one on a big screen?
Bunnyboy: I went to Legend Films site, and saw their demo reel of colorization samples. Stooges, fine and dandy, ALL ABOUT EVE...well, my hackles went up, even though the colors were quite believable.
cease: randi is the best at rallying the troops, but i really dont like the call in format and she doesnt like the guest format
Bone-E-Boi: Everybody out of the dead pool. Watching Mort Sahl swim around in there using only his eyebrow muscles to propel himself is making me queasy.
doctec: beb: lol
llanwydd: No but I saw it on video. I think it's the most pretentious film ever made
doctec: lland: really? more pretentious than heaven's gate?
llanwydd: didn't see hg
Bone-E-Boi: Mort is swimming face down. Hm... Who's got April 29 for Mort?
Dexter Fong: Knock Knock Heavens Gate
doctec: lland: you should - just for comparison's sake
cease: intollerance? it;s a fuckin Ad for intolerance. like bush's clean skies billl
cease: clean of birds
Bunnyboy: I just remember when Turner first started colorizing films, and the lady in the electric purple dress in a Laurel and Hardy short, and the canary yellow tuxedos in CASABLANCA.
Dexter Fong: Canary Island Yellow tuxedos
cease: yes bunny. and the colorization of scrooge. there must be a hell for people who do that
Merlyn: BEB, mort sahl not ready for mort ician yet...
doctec: yeah bb, i remember those - i hated them, i've always thought colorization of b&w films was a bad idea
Bunnyboy: Dex: Speaking of HEAVEN'S GATE alums, Brad Dourif is GREAT as the Doc in DEADWOOD.
Merlyn: Of course, the worst was coloring "ol' blue eyes" Sinatra with brown eyes
doctec: bb: yes - dourif rawwwks!
cease: we dont get that here. alas
cease: read interesting reveiw of it in salon
Dexter Fong: Bun: I had planned to watch that show, but somehow never got started and now....well

Bone-E-Boi: Blue Meanies.
Merlyn: OK doc
Dexter Fong: Night Doc, and best to Lili
Bunnyboy: nite Doc
Merlyn: zactly, BEB
