||||||||| It's 12:20 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| NICK DANGER - dead from the fiddlers

Jonathan: No.
Merlyn: Damn!
Merlyn: No FCC regs here, BTW
Jonathan: You remember me?
Merlyn: No FCC regs here, BTW
Merlyn: eek! a phantom line of text, too!
Merlyn: Anyhoo, what I meant to say was "Yeah, you're Johnathan, right?"
Jonathan: Yeah.
Merlyn: oops, extra 'h'
Merlyn: I see by searching the chat logs you were here 5/27
Jonathan: Yes. Why are we chatting so early. It's only 8. It usually begins at 9
Merlyn: You showed up. I get email every time someone signs in, so I knew you were here.
Jonathan: Oh. I was just planning to be ready for the chat extra early
Merlyn: OK, I have stuff to do in the meantime, anyway
Jonathan: Ok.
Merlyn: Be back later...
||||||||| Catherwood says "8:32 PM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs Merlyn by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
||||||||| It's 8:50 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Jonathan - dead from the yaws
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood announces "It's 8:52 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.
Phil Austin: Austin will be around tonight. I'll be checking in periodically and I'll just leave myself on
||||||||| cease sneaks in around 8:53 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last week's "unpleasant incident."
cease: hey phil. or not
Phil Austin: hey, catski
cease: all set for the saturday gig?
||||||||| Jonathan waltzes in at 8:55 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
Jonathan: Hey phil. I'm Jonathan. I'm a BIG fan.
Phil Austin: If I disappear tonight, I'm just doing things. FST show this Sat and other work boiling at the moment
cease: as oppsed to a small air conditioner?
Phil Austin: Cat: how did your LA trip go?
Phil Austin: Hi Johathon: Nice to know how BIG you are
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Merlyn', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 8:56 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
cease: in that digitial village interview last week, bergman said you guys were going on tour next year. is it true?
Merlyn: Hey phil! See you on Saturday, I'm stay at Bergman's
Jonathan: Lol.
cease: well, trip was about visiting my parents which is what i did. they are frail.
Jonathan: I recently bought Papoon for President. Cool album
cease: i did hear bergman in an ad for your gig, on kcrw
Merlyn: Also, a new thing I added to the Funway page, it shows the 4 heads chatting instead of transforming into "Firesign Theatre" when people are in the chat room.
Phil Austin: We've got five shows in late Jan. and early feb. 2005. Cerritos Perf. arts center in LA, Marin co. perf. arts in SF, Portland two shows at the Alladdin and the Moore for one night in SEA, We;ll be doing essentially a radio show ala Dear Friends on stage
cease: wow
Phil Austin: Merl: great. I'll take a look
cease: i'll definitely go to seattle for that show
Merlyn: Got an email from the mailing list wanting to know when you guys will play the east coast
Jonathan: I have so many questions to ask Mr. Austin. i don't know where to start.
Phil Austin: Johathon: go papoon, athough he should get out of Kerry's way
Merlyn: The funway: http://www.firesigntheater.com/funway.html
Jonathan: My mom says go kerry.
Phil Austin: merl: east coast has made us no offers at our present limits ( dollars we want and perf. arts type venues) to go to East, since O and I don't fly, we have to put together a financially viable tour to make it happen
Jonathan: She'd also like to know if and when you;re coming to boston
Phil Austin: Austin's disappearing for a while. I'll be back, hold questions if ya got em
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, June 17, 2004 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
Merlyn: That's kinda what I thought, I know you and Oona have to go cross-country
Merlyn: Phil leaves and everyone shuts up...
Jonathan: I SPOKE TO PHIL!!!!!!!!!
Jonathan: So who's taking phil's place?
cease: you are
Jonathan: Lol.
cease: i think that's what firesign theatre have always been about, empowering YOU, the Viewer to be your own firesign theatre
cease: at least i recall a conversation with the other Phil where he said that
Merlyn: Phil will turn pink if we talk long enough
Jonathan: Lol. What do you mean?
Merlyn: The names fade if someone doesn't "say" anything for a while; Phil is red, so he fades to lighter red instead of gray
cease: joe canoson is quoting from the yale law review. where are our yalies tonight?
Merlyn: But it isn't using time, just how much text has passed. So if we say things, his name will start to fade after about 40 or 50 lines
Merlyn: Cat, when Phil comes back I'll post a notice on the majority report weblog that he's in the chat.
cease: good work, merl
cease: did you hear paul krassner on the show yesterday?
cease: i only found out about it at the end of tuesday's show or i would have posted to alt.ft earlier
Merlyn: Yeah, pretty weird. His website has the "disney orgy" poster for sale
Merlyn: By Mad's Wally Wood
cease: i responded to the MR's request for guests by suggestino shearer, krassner and bergman. 2 down, now where's pete?
cease: he sent me a copy of that 10 years ago. a classic
cease: you told them to have the firesign on , right merl?
Merlyn: I think I missed shearer.
Merlyn: Yes, cat.
cease: even if just as guests! they're a lot funnier than janeane and franken, even if they're highly paid "comediens"
Jonathan: Harry shearer isn't from the Firesign theatre.
Merlyn: did they get sex changes?
Merlyn: that's OK, neither is krassner
cease: it was in the first days of the show. one should be able to find it on archives somewherel, like all of le shows in the past decade, including the one that krassner hosted
cease: actually, krassner and shearer had a show with bergman. it was called Peter, Paul and Harry
Jonathan: Lol.
Merlyn: Hey, lots of people clicked to buy FT albums today
Merlyn: hellooooo?
Jonathan: Hi.
Merlyn: Waiting for Godot to bring back Phil
cease: because of the la gig, merl?
Merlyn: Yeah, Phil said he'd be busy and maybe going in and out
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'mrmuckle', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:23 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...

cease: i told them to interview bergman, but you're at least as funny
Jonathan: Hey Phil: How do you guys decide on casting for your sketches?
Phil Austin: muck: the problem with the bright lights is that they aren't fucking bright enough. I'm having to print scripts for reading onstage in 24 point type and even then i have to wear glasses half the time. fuck, as we say here.
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Dexter Fong', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:28 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...

Dexter Fong: It's NanceeeeeeeeeeeeY

||||||||| Catherwood enters with Dr Headphones close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 9:28 PM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the Aviary.
mrmuckle: I's knows EGG-ZACTLY what you mean
Phil Austin: jon: ( say hello to garfield) we just dole things out. The person who writes the stuff usually has casting dibs, and if it's all of us writing, we pretty much know while writing which voices we're going to use where and who does them. Lots of times we

Bambi: Bart, short for Bartonella ;)
Jonathan: That reminds me. Can we expect a new album? Or is All Things Firesign pretty much it?

||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Jonathan: i don't know Dr. Headphones. He never went to school.
Dexter Fong: wierd

Bambi: night Jon
cease: off you go jon, come again
Bubba's Brain: I can just imagine the ad campaign.... "I'd sell my soul for a slice of Diablo Pizza" SFX: Fire, brinstone, smoke.....
Bone-E-Boi: Okay, I'm not going to say another word about it here. I've posted a message to the newsgroup. You can comment on it there. Subject of the post is "Firesignesque?"
Dr Headphones: baked fresh every day by doctor faustus
Dr Headphones: bone: i read it in the toilet
klokwkdog: by jon
Bubba's Brain: devilishly good pizza
Bone-E-Boi: Auguring poop again, Dr.Phones?
klokwkdog: heck, it's just one slice, not a whole pie...
Dr Headphones: no, i don't have to auger it out, i'm "regular" enough
Bubba's Brain: We're all regular folks here....
Dexter Fong: Ken: YOu know the drill then
Dr Headphones: i'm an accountant, i work it out with a pencil
Bambi: 906-228-3275
Bone-E-Boi: but it's really great shit, DrPhones.
Dexter Fong: Don't forget Slpicover Drive Clem

klokwkdog: but he's in communicado...
Dr Headphones: he turned pink.
klokwkdog: o blinding light
Bone-E-Boi: do I detect some hostility? Is it too late for constructive criticism? Maybe I should just go.
klokwkdog really liked the Robert Scott parody
Dr Headphones: my light was blinding me, but i moved the shade and it's ok now
Bone-E-Boi: i'd like to take 1 2
Bambi: hi Cat!
Dr Headphones: bone: do not go unless you *want* to
Bambi: great to hear ya on the radio :)
Bone-E-Boi: when you gotta go, you gotta go.
klokwkdog: wow, a really high-quality dial tone
Dr Headphones: the dulcet tones of a dial tone :)
klokwkdog: always use a ROUTER!
Dexter Fong: or an auger
||||||||| It's 11:10 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| llanwydd - dead from the fiddlers
||||||||| Jonathan - dead from pneumonia
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Dr Headphones: i have only one bit for my router, used for making dadoes
klokwkdog: oh, that Roto was here...
Dexter Fong: So that's how they make Itlaians
||||||||| Catherwood says "11:10 PM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs Bone-E-Boi by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
klokwkdog: it's...the Cat-ster!
Dexter Fong: Bye BEB
Dr Headphones: i'm just getting the cat audio now. of course bambi was listening live ;)
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Yamamoto Yamamoto', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 11:11 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Dexter Fong: Ken: It's in stereo next week
Dr Headphones: oi, yam!
Dexter Fong: YaYa
Yamamoto Yamamoto: OI
Yamamoto Yamamoto: Phil is pink
klokwkdog: at a higher sample rate, Dex?
Yamamoto Yamamoto: goddam commie
Dr Headphones: for higher sample rates, use better drugs
Bambi: we never saw FST in concert :(
Dexter Fong: Klok: Usampled, dithered, and truncated to 16 bits
Yamamoto Yamamoto: ow
klokwkdog: it's all truncated to 16 bits. and linearly encoded, darn it all
Yamamoto Yamamoto: Dithering is what Dagwood's boss did to blondie, I hear
Dr Headphones: truncated bits. the story of my life, alas.........
Dexter Fong: Let us now read from Sony/Phillips little RED BOOK
Dr Headphones: dex: i thought it was an orange book?
Dexter Fong: It's a Red SHift thing Ken
klokwkdog: we could build a FireSHRINE for them!
Bambi: enjoyed the call Cat!
Yamamoto Yamamoto: If someone found my bits in a truncate that would not be good
klokwkdog: Dwarf was on 8-track?
Dr Headphones: everything worth listening to was on 8-track ;)
klokwkdog: it's over faster for her than for us...
Dexter Fong: Klk: Sure..My first copy was on 78 rpm shellac discs
cease: my dad had a quad system he won. wish i'd been able to get bozos for it
Bambi: good one :)
Dexter Fong: 9 Discs
klokwkdog: Bozos was in quad?
Dr Headphones: i have "how can you be" on wax cylinder
Yamamoto Yamamoto: quad bozos?
ah,clem: thanks Cat
Dexter Fong: Ken: Keep it out of the son
Yamamoto Yamamoto: how appropo
cease: www.seemreal.com
Dr Headphones: i'll keep it out of the daughter, too ;)
ah,clem: BRB out for a smoke... hehe
klokwkdog just heard a 1932 stereo recording of Armstrong today. they had two mics and two cutters in the studio
klokwkdog: it was a 33 rpm EP, too, not 78
cease: you gotta play the magic mushroom plays, ah clem
Dr Headphones: wow, klok, i didn't know anything like that was tried
Dexter Fong: Jack Armstrong in stereo...cool, how about Bob and Betty
Yamamoto Yamamoto: Duke Ellington also did some early Stereo Sides
Merlyn: I'm old and gray
Dexter Fong: Merl: Nobody loves you when you're old and gray
Bambi: not sure we have the magic mushroom plays :(
Yamamoto Yamamoto: 1937 for BellLabs IIRC
klokwkdog: well, Bell labs did some classical, but this was serendipitous. they used one master for domestic and another for sales in Europe, so was only assembled by collectors a few years ago when they realized it
Merlyn: I was only talking about my name turning gray...
Bambi: is that yours Cat?
Dexter Fong: Sorry Merl =)
klokwkdog: yeah, you were on the way to following Spaulding, Merlyn
Bambi: we have RedShift and another one that I can't remember the name of (has a black and white oriental drawing on it, is that it?)
cease: my immense dog has returned from his walk. he keeps dropping wet tennis balls on my keyboard.
Bambi: lol
klokwkdog: in the end, all B&W drawings are oriental, aren't they?
cease: that would be Box of Time. You should also have Neal Amid and An Infinite Trilogy. tell me if you dont
Dr Headphones: everything is east of something else--the very definition of "orient"
cease: mayan, not oriental
klokwkdog: if you fed him more Bentonite, his mouth would be drier...
Bambi: yes, we have Neal Amid too for sure!
cease: you like that one?
klokwkdog: so if you orient yourself, you face East?
Dr Headphones: klok: that makes for some difficult bowel movements, i'm sure
klokwkdog: aha! those filthy sun-worshippers
Bambi: I liked all of the ones you sent
Dexter Fong: To orient yourself, first get your chops together
Bambi: very nice work
klokwkdog: thank you, Sgt. Sphincter
Dexter Fong: Thats SUn Emperor Sphincter
cease: that's like sayhing you like al lthe firesign albums. to some extent, its the same question but aside from that. i think play A is better than play B, or any other commodity.
Dr Headphones: at youre cervix
klokwkdog: well, that's the other benefit, Ken -- they pretty much stop eating
Bambi smiles ... but I do like all the FST albums too
cease: althought i've written lots of plays and hopefully will write lots more, i would be most happy to have on my tombstone, Cat Simril Ishikawa,
cease: author of Neal Amid
klokwkdog: in an emergency or a home invasion, you can force-feed oatmeal and water, which turns your pet into a handy gas gun...firing a high-penetration Bentonite shell
Dr Headphones: i must dig up my copy of "neal" and listen again soon
Bambi: yes, that would be an awesome thing to have ... it was one of your best to be sure ... if not the best overall.
Yamamoto Yamamoto: I would like Pepperonis on MY Tombstone
cease: this is bergman, the dirty dog. Icy is comparitively clean
klokwkdog: well, if he gets a potty mouth, there's nothing for it but soap...
Bambi: my problem is when I hear an FST or one of yours, the one I am listening to at the time seems to become my favorite till the next one LOL
Dr Headphones: bambi: eggsactly right!
klokwkdog: yes, they're all my favorites
cease: that's what writing feels like, bambi. but you probably know that already
Bambi: I write articles, and not very well really ... I wish I had more writing ability.
klokwkdog: Bambi, I have a machbook cover I can send you; it'll fix you right up
Yamamoto Yamamoto does cueniform on clay tablets
Bambi: I enjoy it and thoughts come at the worst possible time ...
Dr Headphones: well, i MUST make a run to the store. will return in a few
cease: clay condoms? what would ruby think?
klokwkdog: happy traveling, Ken
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Johnny Piano', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 11:28 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
cease: a few runs?
Bambi: ok, see ya soon Ken
Johnny Piano: Sounds like Bambi's been writing wrongs!
Bambi: hi JP
Dexter Fong: and I must park a car, my car...someone else's car...any car....must..park....car
cease: johnny. we were waiting for you
klokwkdog: sounds like a pepto-bismol run...
Johnny Piano: Hi back at ya.
Bambi: LOL good one JP
Johnny Piano: How so, cease?
klokwkdog: good luck, Dex
Johnny Piano: Noticed the chatter about the quad Bozos...
cease: well, we were gaining weight, and you weren't here
klokwkdog: free of the Agency, finally, eh?
klokwkdog: Dex
Johnny Piano: Read online recently where the Moody Blues old quad albums are being rechannelled for 5.1 in the near future
cease: good cia riff in tom robbins book
Johnny Piano: Thought that maybe the quad mix of Bozos would be an interesting candidate...
cease: yes, ah and bambi, this is oddly firesonian. i'd forgotten
klokwkdog: but does it end well?
cease: only SO much shallower
Bambi: thought it was too Cat ... but then I hadn't heard it for a while
cease: you need to be firesign to be firesign, if you catch my meaning
Yamamoto Yamamoto: Can't get it to go under firefox :P
Johnny Piano: So...a Firesign tour is imminent? Howzabout the Midwest?
klokwkdog: that requires too much inside knowledge to be general, Cat
Bambi: yes, this mainly has an FST mild flavor ;)
Yamamoto Yamamoto: bah
Johnny Piano: I prefer my FST spicy...
Bambi: me too JP ... but this is fun too
klokwkdog: yeah, like Pace's MILD Picante Sauce -- who buys that?
Johnny Piano: wimps
Bambi: lol
Bambi: no fun unless it burns the roof off your mouth and lights your lips on fire
Johnny Piano: Imagine if you can Atkins-approved picante sauce...
klokwkdog: they should make TVs that allow mixing video from one channel with audio from another without going to lots of work doing it yourself...
Bambi: you're right klok
Bambi: I have always thought that
klokwkdog: 100% capcaicin, Johnny?
Johnny Piano: Go for it Edison!
klokwkdog: it could be one of the settings, like the alarm one at full volume for 4:30AM that kids always set when visiting and you don't know how the darn setup works...
Johnny Piano: Uh-oh, someone slipped the chat a Sleepy Joe...
Bambi: this guy reminds me of the Ben (from Toledo, originally ... Short Circuit movie ... but better english)
cease: i'm back
Johnny Piano: and yer bootiful...
ah,clem: wb
Bambi: oops ... twas mixing him with Klinger lol
ah,clem: yup
Bambi: wb Cat
Johnny Piano: Hey, that's just a dodge
cease: cal worthington'd dodge, i forget. some dodge dealership in la inspired a firesing character i think austin did
cease: the demons guy, i think
cease: like ralph williams became spoilsport
Johnny Piano: "I couldn't make you a better deal if I was standing on my head..."
cease: my dad was a car dealer in that area in those days so i knew them well
klokwkdog: The litigious yogi - http://www.economist.com/people/displayStory.cfm?story_id=2765973
klokwkdog: not fried squash!
Johnny Piano: Ah-hey, Boo Boo...where's that pic-a-nic basket?
klokwkdog: hmm - maybe that should be: !fried squash
Bambi: Mr. Ranger Sir took it back
klokwkdog: hey, where's doctec tonite?
Bubba's Brain: out
Bubba's Brain: He had a prior engagement
Johnny Piano: sick...ill...tired...bored
Bambi: no fried squash? drat ... I enjoy that
Bambi: yellow squash that is
cease: dont squash that dwarf, hand me the job
klokwkdog: not fried squash is a condition; no fried squash is a situation...
cease: did any of you read the ceritos ad for firesign concert on the firesign site?
ah,clem: try these pliers
cease: very weird indeed
Merlyn: suing Mr. Ranger?
Johnny Piano: Will those pliers help me read the ad?
klokwkdog: the trials of job
klokwkdog: god said to abraham, kill me a son
cease: my odd week for firesign misquotes. i posted the jim hightower one last sunday
Johnny Piano: Mr. Ranger is an Indian giver
Merlyn: boy was my response late...
Bubba's Brain: you puttin me on!
cease: i use that in Box of Time, klok. have you heard thatr?
Johnny Piano: better late...
Bambi: Merlyn .. nice page on the /announce/
cease: than latte?
klokwkdog: no cat
cease: stop pukin, putin
Merlyn: greg aranda corrected my firesign update "Hey! Corn! Now we can make tacos!" should be "Corn! now we can make tortillas!"
cease: is that like no carb?
Johnny Piano: consonant trouble...
Merlyn: (I just invented tacos)
Johnny Piano: no carb tortillas?
Merlyn: the announce/ page is kind of inconsistent, because now I put the dates in order going down the page, instead of going "up"
Bambi: Cat did you notice the Firesign Theatre article on my newsletter site?
klokwkdog: yeah, they use fuel injection now
Johnny Piano: how's about no carb flotillas?
klokwkdog: first Mission of Burma tours, then Firesign; is this a great country or what?
Merlyn: I think I'll remove the LIVE ON STAGE bits though
klokwkdog: i say again - they use fuel injection. no float needed
Bambi: it's fun that way Merlyn ... keeps folks on their toes ;)
Johnny Piano: I get it now...d'oh!
klokwkdog: that's not good for us, Bambi
Bambi: here's the article on the newsletter site: http://jim-fran.com/fcsnl/index.php?module=pagemaster&PAGE_user_op=view_page&PAGE_id=59

Johnny Piano: John Lennon?
klokwkdog: bambi - can you move the text a little bit past the r. edge of the album images? in NS 7.1, it's pretty tight
klokwkdog: Malcolm X?
Bambi: I had only heard one album until ah,clem shared his with me ... and that was on a progressive radio station back when I was 18.
Johnny Piano: the same
klokwkdog: yeah, all the progressive radio stations got progressively more owned...
Merlyn: Isn't Malcolm X the new operating system for the Blakkle computer?
Johnny Piano: genius is pain
Dr Headphones: i made it :)
klokwkdog: They aren't using Plan 9 after all?
Bambi: good idea Klok ... will see what I can do .. I had done those pages early on ... I just might be able to do that now that I have learned the system better. Just noticed that myself when I went there.
Dr Headphones: but i missed the exposition
Bambi: again

Johnny Piano: That's why the song's so cool...

||||||||| 12:23 AM -- Phil Austin left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
Johnny Piano: Clearance, Clarence?
||||||||| Phil Austin strides in at 12:24 AM with Danny Vanilla badgering him for an interview; since he has no badgers, Catherwood forcibly escorts Danny Vanilla out the door.
Merlyn: dex, I don't think that's phil's problem
Dr Headphones: dad blast it, bone, you type quicker than i do
Phil Austin: what am I to reconfigure?
Dr Headphones: phil, you're here
Dexter Fong: Ok Merl
Bone-E-Boi: I wonder if sweat is pouring from Phil's brow.
Phil Austin: have to go deal with my oldest dog, back in a minute
Dr Headphones: not enough fingers and too many toes
Dexter Fong: PHIL ANything ,..the number of lines for instance this is after you acess skybird and minimize it so you can see the page
Merlyn: Phil, like you said, you can't fix it now. If your browser doesn't know what to do with the Skybird link, your browser doesn't know how to play it
klokwkdog: ah, always nice to play cards with your dogs -- like in the pictures
cease: what a difference between old and young dogs
Bone-E-Boi: I'm off to find a transcript of Shatner's final speech in Airplane 2.
Dexter Fong: Yeah KLok: But you gotta watch em, they cheat
klokwkdog: Merlyn - he said it brings up a player (unknown kind) but no sound
Bone-E-Boi: You can find anything online.
Dr Headphones: i'm off to see the whizzer. here's hoping everything comes out alright....
Bubba's Brain wonders why BeB or anyone would ever do such a thing.
Dexter Fong: And PHil Austin brings up a player from the Grapefruit League
Yamamoto Cubed: WE aim to please, You aim, too, Please
Bone-E-Boi: dammit, it's what the internet is for.
Johnny Piano: And so does Louise...
Dr Headphones: bambi: i just saw your private message to me: click on the link that says "msgs" and it will open a page. right click if you don't want to lose this one
Phil Austin: back
cease: lou's ease?
Yamamoto Cubed: front
Bone-E-Boi: flip
Yamamoto Cubed: Front!
Dr Headphones: i've looked at life from both sides now
Phil Austin: ancient dog waddell needed a drink of delicious water
Johnny Piano: Don't hide arms, get side arms!
cease: front, side, other dimensional topicalities
Dexter Fong: FRENT!!
Bone-E-Boi: Where's Richard Dawson to tell us who won?
klokwkdog: says some kind of progress bar which either means he's buffering or that he's playing. and before he heard Skybird for "a minute or so", so probably not a volume/mute problem, either
Johnny Piano: How ancient is Waddell?
Yamamoto Cubed: He's dead
Dr Headphones: bone: that's don pardo's job
Bubba's Brain: Its life's illusions I recall.
klokwkdog: pardo's push?
Dexter Fong: Waddell is sealed off
ah,clem: Ken -- will do that when I get back upstairs (this is Bambi at the desk for a few minutes)
Dr Headphones: how old IS don pardo now? he still does the SNL announcing duties
Phil Austin: the old dead guy is sixteen. the oldest dog recorded, I believe , is a cattle dog. it's in the book.
Phil Austin: thirty years old, it's in the book, so they say
klokwkdog: wow
Johnny Piano: Man, that is OLD for a canine.
Dexter Fong: I wouldn't make book on a dog making 30 years
Bubba's Brain: That's 210 to you and me.....
Dr Headphones: i've heard of cats going over 20 years, but that's highly unusual
klokwkdog: so they couldn't trust him, in the end?
Phil Austin: He's having one hell of a summer. The drinking water part is only the tip of the iceberg
Johnny Piano: And Waddell's deaf, right?
cease: mami was 17. when you invited us to the tv show, we were monitoring her death. also movingk, and strarting neew job. too much, too soon
Yamamoto Cubed: What?
Dr Headphones: if it's water, it can't be an ICEberg
klokwkdog: so Phil, still a blast if you could call skybird anyway...
cease: icebergs are so Romantic
Yamamoto Cubed: ICE 9 Berg
Dexter Fong: It's the cold water Johnny, hurts the ear mechanism
Phil Austin: piano: deaf from birth and now pretty much blind. still very beautiful to look at though
Johnny Piano: Is it Kosher water if it's an iceberg
klokwkdog: extra Frosty Paws, maybe, Phil?
Dr Headphones: had a blind dog once, it was hell when the furniture got moved around
Dexter Fong: JP: SLim chance
Johnny Piano: I vividly remember your "Back From The Shadows" liner notes, Phil...the whole brood.
Dr Headphones: eat it raw!
klokwkdog: bit on NPR today, I think - blind dog catching Frisbees
Dr Headphones: klok: i heard part of that, haven't gone to their page to listen to all of it
Bone-E-Boi: My cat tries to kill the Calvin and Hobbes bouncing Linux screensaver.
Johnny Piano: How about a deaf bat?
Dr Headphones: a deaf bat is a dead bat
cease: teh beautiful blind dog. the ultimate yin yang
klokwkdog: but they can still get work in show business, Ken
Dexter Fong: A shrug is as good as a wink to a deaf bat
Johnny Piano: 10 Dead Bats...
Dexter Fong: JP: lol
Bone-E-Boi: My cat believes that I'm quietly waiting to kill the Calvin and Hobbes screensaver. That's what I sit here for hours at a time every day.
Johnny Piano: dredging up the references
klokwkdog spent part of May water skiing behind an ancient Akita...glad he didn't have to handle this dog when young
Phil Austin: I'v got some quicktime thing that isn't audioing at all
Yamamoto Cubed: I use the BSOD screensaver
Dexter Fong: Bringing in the wit
Bone-E-Boi: That's why I sit here for hours at a time every day.
Johnny Piano: sitting shiva
Phil Austin: klok: you mean akita was driving the boat?
Bone-E-Boi: Seems like a good explanation to me.
Dexter Fong: Knitting Browsers
klokwkdog: Phil - can you close Quicktime and manually start Windows Media Player (or are you on a Mac?)
Dr Headphones: yam: i have the molecules screensaver on redhat, nice to walk up to the screen after inactivity and watch THC or LSD rotating around
Phil Austin: I'm on a mac
klokwkdog: not exactly Phil - I had this stupid idea about taking this near- wolf for a "walk". And I'm not exactly a light person...
Johnny Piano: I'm running RP on my Mac for Skybird
Dexter Fong: Enlightened but not light
Johnny Piano: I believe it would run on iTunes too
klokwkdog: oh, can't figure out what to do; Quicktime is THE thing to use there, I believe
Dr Headphones: whiplash computer school. i'm a proud graduate myself
klokwkdog: Johnny - help him enjoy this; it's great
Phil Austin: can't figure it out. It got me in early in the evening and it was fun to listen. Then it killed itself and I haven't been able to get back
Johnny Piano: Tell ya what, I'll try opening in iTunes...brb
Yamamoto Cubed: No clue w/macs
Dr Headphones: i have seen macs but never touched one
Johnny Piano: I'm back, and iTunes works fine.
klokwkdog: i've seen macs, but never able to afford one...those new hi-res LCD screens are awesome
Merlyn: phil, the player may be hosed until you reboot or something...
klokwkdog: Johnny - but tell how you play Skybird in iTunes on a Mac, pse
Dexter Fong: In France, they call Macs Computer Royales
cease: no shit, klok
Dr Headphones: macs are almost like a mercedes: if you have to ask how much it costs, you can't afford one
Yamamoto Cubed: I'm Happy just trying to figure out why mu Palm won't work on a USB port in Linux
klokwkdog: phil has rebooted now at least twice by my count, Merlyn, to no effect
Yamamoto Cubed: This reboot is made for walking
klokwkdog: yes, Ken, but to see one is to want one...
Dr Headphones: go, nancy!
Dexter Fong: Reshake your Reboot E
cease: now, why do i not know this firesign?
Johnny Piano: Very simple - just like any internet radio receiver. In my case, when I click on the Skybird link, normally it asks what I want to open it in.
cease: i love this
Johnny Piano: Anywho, I told it to open in iTunes.
Dr Headphones: clem: what's the file name on this one?
cease: radio free oz?
klokwkdog: actually, the sound "mac" has an unfortunate connotation in French...
cease: fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuk
ah,clem: LOL
Dexter Fong: Cat: Not familiar to me iether
ah,clem: got one,
Bubba's Brain: I'm only mostly dead....
Dr Headphones: bub: where there's life, there's firesign
Dexter Fong: CLEM: What is this we're listening to?
Johnny Piano: sounds like more "Let's Eat" to me
Bubba's Brain: DrH -- I'll remember that in my waning years.
Yamamoto Cubed: got it in realplayer
Yamamoto Cubed: yay
cease: good one, kend
Dexter Fong: Could be JP, but I'm thiking maybe its ealier
Phil Austin: would someone send me the url for skybird?
klokwkdog is glad his waxing years are past...hurts like heck
Yamamoto Cubed: http://216.234.115.10:8000
Johnny Piano: Hour Hour?
Dr Headphones: http://216.234.115.10:8000/listen.pls
cease: kend, is this hour hour?
Johnny Piano: http://216.234.115.10:8000/listen.pls
Dr Headphones: not sure, cat, been so long since i've listened to that
cease: i only have 7. there were lots of them. i'd love to hear them all
Dexter Fong: Dear Frineds I think
Merlyn: Phil, try "open location" or "open URL" with those if clicking doesn't work
Merlyn: (in your player, not your browser)
Dexter Fong: Based on hat I'm hearing now (which is certain to differ from what any of you are hearing then)
Merlyn: you're listening to your hat? I talk through mine
Dr Headphones: sell those demons!
Dr Headphones: mine has eyeballs
Dexter Fong: Merl:+))
Dr Headphones: i see with it
Johnny Piano: Hey, Phil - name the new dog Fletcher!
