Dave: Spike Mulligan died?
Clueless_Monkey: new install NYT sending my passwd

Bubba's Brain: That's too bad --- hadn't heard it.
doctecazoid: we ended up in 2nd place this past session that finished end of may, so have to show up a pool hall (gasp) 7:45am saturday
Bightrethighrehighre: not insane....!!!!
stephnfosterkane: Yean, Ilan, I can certainly see the influence -- if you read the script for The Seventh Seal for example, it just jumps out at you, all the Goon stuff!
Rotonoto: open the pod bay door, Dave...
ceas: bummer, doc
Bone-E-Boi: i'm insane and i fixed my caps lock key
Dave: oh I've never heard any of there stuff, Ken had a bunch of Spike's poems I downloaded

doctecazoid: beat death at chess! position after #17: knee to corner of board
Bone-E-Boi: i wonder if i should trademark my handle.
stephnfosterkane: you mean after Sellers et al died?
Bightrethighrehighre: This just in: Papoon has picked Kevorkian as his running mate....
Jonathan: Doctecazoid: Pool hall? Ya got trouble with a capital "T" and that rhymes with "P" and that stands for pool.
stephnfosterkane: why stop there, BEB -- patent it
Johnny Piano: If you don't trademark it, Clueless Monkey will.
||||||||| Bone-E-Boi leaves to catch the 11:24 PM train to Hellmouth.
doctecazoid: klok: it depends on how far we get in tourney, relative to when marathon starts
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'Bone-E-Boi[tm]', just granted probation at 11:24 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
stephnfosterkane: Microsoft just patented using skin to send power to earrings or something
Dexter Fong: Oi Boi
Bambi: London scene of Giant Rat
doctecazoid: it's a single elimination tournament (meaning you are out if your team loses, otherwise you stay in)
stephnfosterkane: Marathon starts somewhere near the end of the plains north of Athens, doesn't it?
doctecazoid: so if we lose early, we get the day to ourselves
ceas: you do a good job of shuffling firestuff, ah and bambi
Bone-E-Boi[tm]: Ray Bradbury should have trademarked his prophetic sci-fi novel Fahrenheit 9/11.
stephnfosterkane: fun comment on the patent: www.userfriendly.org/static
doctecazoid: but with so many teams playing on so few tables, and if we do anywhere near as well as we did in the vegas tourney, i may be in for a long weekend
Rotonoto: So when Does the marathon start on Saturday?
ceas: good one, bone, old bean
Johnny Piano: I wonder if Bradbury will actually sue Moore?
stephnfosterkane: DT: they let you loose? Omygod!
||||||||| "Hey Bone-E-Boi[tm]!" ... Bone-E-Boi[tm] turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 11:26 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...
||||||||| Bone-E-Boi[TM] waltzes in at 11:26 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
stephnfosterkane: this is all a kind of riff on The Seven Percent Solution isn't it, or does it go deeper/farther back than that
doctecazoid: if we at least make it through the first round, we get $800 (divided 8 ways, $100 per team member)
Dexter Fong: OI BOI AGAIN
stephnfosterkane: Fats Waller - great jazz pianist
Bone-E-Boi[TM]: fats footman
doctecazoid: we get more $$$ the longer we are able to continue our winning ways
Dexter Fong: KLok: And entertainer
Dave: my fave line, "I sat on my pipe!'
stephnfosterkane: JP - Bradbury is re-issuing Fahrenheit 451 and a movie remake is pending
llanwydd: got mail. brb
ceas: hopefully not from experience, dave
Bone-E-Boi[TM]: who owns the intellectual property contained in Thursday Nite Chat?
stephnfosterkane: wow, you stand to clean up almost as well as the financers of Spaceship One!
Johnny Piano: I knew that the remake of F451 was in the works, but are you suggesting that Bradbury's angling for publicity?
stephnfosterkane: you can quit your day job!
ceas: none bone
Bubba's Brain: I'm not dead, I just smell funny....
Dave: no cat, I don't smoke, never have smoked
Johnny Piano: Bone, you're suggesting that something intellectual is happening!
Bone-E-Boi[TM]: The remake will suck compared to Truffaut's original. Then you won't be able to watch the original anymore.
ceas: that can be cured, bub
Jonathan: I don't know much about that album except that Hemlock plucks his violin to find some frequency.
Bubba's Brain: Well, I could be smoked.
Bambi: Fahrenheit 451 is one of my favorite old movies/books ... lots of fun stories by Bradbury
stephnfosterkane: well, Bradbury may have trouble suing if Moore plays the satire angle, no, and he's getting loads of free publicity
doctecazoid: All Thursday Night Chat content copied right! US Plus Corporation
ceas: meant more as joke, dave.
Johnny Piano: I love that Truffaut version
Dave: smoked brain?
Bone-E-Boi[TM]: The remake of Rollerball was terrible.

stephnfosterkane: yes, Dave, try the Papua New Guinea version; great stuff...for awhile
Dexter Fong: Roto: Between Friday and sunday
Johnny Piano: Remakes in general blow large chunks
Bubba's Brain: Dave... I think that's a delicacy in some cultures....
ceas: when i first e-met proctor and then personally met them all, i felt the need to quotye their own works to them. but that passed
Bone-E-Boi[TM]: Has anyone seen the Australian version of Bliss?
ah,clem: no, just first cut
stephnfosterkane: there are so many "good lines" in this album (Giant Rat, Jonathan) that I can't pick just one
ceas: good one, ah
Jonathan: Giant rat. I know.
Dexter Fong: Bone: Saw the Yiddish version: Briss
stephnfosterkane: (although I did for my klokwkdog moniker, obviously ;-)
Johnny Piano: Aren't you the presumptious one?
Dave: ah

Dave: oh ok clem, thanks though,
Dave: thanks for putting up with my ramblings too haha
Bone-E-Boi[TM]: Briss? It's okay, everyone is speaking Chinese.
stephnfosterkane: we are currently listening to the opening scenes of Giant Rat, Jonathan
Bubba's Brain: Dex, thought that was the chinese version.
Bambi: make it a C Note and we'll take the case LOL
Rotonoto: I shall stand, poised, beside my computer between Friday and Sunday- no, wait- I have to work Saturday
Johnny Piano: Ah-sai!!!

Jonathan: ah sai is yes sir backwards,
Dexter Fong: Bub: CHinese now own Australia...Keepe original (not aboriginal) name to avoid confuciusion
Bone-E-Boi[TM]: abnormal?
Bubba's Brain: Abby someone....
Johnny Piano: FT certainly borrowed a lot from themselves re Rat from Silvery
stephnfosterkane: but no, you cut out the klokwkdog! aaaaaagh! ;-))
Jonathan: That whole chinese sequence is actually the friends on the left march played backwards.
stephnfosterkane: what should we call the studio? fruitless?
Johnny Piano: Correct, Jonathan
Dexter Fong: JP: THrift Horatio, Thrift

Johnny Piano: Got to clone!
Dave: even the colorblind can see it!
Rotonoto: ahhh, my Mom was a Bozoette in high school
stephnfosterkane: probably really just cheap traprock from CT that somebody painted
Jonathan: Many people like to squeeze Bambi's wheeze. (no innuendo intended.)
Johnny Piano: Start young - stick it out!
Bightrethighrehighre: sqweeezzee the wheeeeezzz....

Dr.Headphones: doc: yes, but i haven't tried anything else yet.
stephnfosterkane: that's Clem, always cutting up on-air
Dr.Headphones: put away the knife, clem, stop cutting up
stephnfosterkane: one cut from column a and two cuts from column 'b'...
Bambi: lol
llanwydd: over my head I'm afraid, steve
Bone-E-Boi®: I wonder if I can get my rating changed to PG-13.
stephnfosterkane: MORE BAMBI, less Clem (no offense)
Johnny Piano: Hey, anybody here own the Boom Dot Bust DVD Audio disc?
doctecazoid: dr. h: cool, just wanted to make sure you got it
stephnfosterkane: (Jonathan - Bambi just went on-mike for 1.5 sec)
Johnny Piano: Bone, Valenti just called - he said NO
Dr.Headphones: bambi is without a doubt the better looking of the two. and to hear her tell the tale, she's smarter also ;)
Jonathan: Oh.
doctecazoid: bambi's got a very sultry voice
Bightrethighrehighre: hi back at ya, Bambi....
stephnfosterkane: if you can't chabnge your rating, you're Bound for Baghdad (or bound IN Abu Ghraib)
Bambi smiles
ceas: wonderful voice, bambi
Johnny Piano: You should speak more, Bambi...
llanwydd: ah, I think I understand. If I could call on a regular telephone I'd do it that way
Bambi: thanks :-)
Dave: BOZOS!
Rotonoto: yah, them darned kids!
stephnfosterkane: Jonathan - beginning the opening of "Bozos..."
Dr.Headphones: hey roto! was away for dinner, didn't see you arrive
Dave: did I miss Bambi? damn
Johnny Piano: The Future Fair!
Bambi: and bozoettes too
Bightrethighrehighre: I'm a *THIS AREA* native....!!
Dave: no fare to anybody
Jonathan: Now that i own
Dr.Headphones: i'd like to open a bozoette or two ;)
Bambi: I said hi to you all :-)
Johnny Piano: Why do I suspect a handsome simulfax copy can be obtained, Dave?
stephnfosterkane: oh yes, Ilan. there have been calls from people on irregular telephones, like mine, and it didn't go well atoll...
Clueless_Monkey: bklbk
Dave: clem you playing whole thing? that's "this side" and "the other side"
Clueless_Monkey: jjjjj
Bubba's Brain: ...
Clueless_Monkey: jkjkj
doctecazoid: i'm willing to bet bambi never has to let the air out of *her* shoes
stephnfosterkane: Dave - I am logging for the last 1.43 megabytes...
Dr.Headphones: my phone is regular, i feed it loosner's every day
Clueless_Monkey: is this thing on
Johnny Piano: I'll send over a bottle of Legopena, Doc.
Clueless_Monkey: Automation paused.
doctecazoid: lego? i used to have a set...
Dr.Headphones: johnny: send the glass and the ice too, please, i like it on the rocks
Clueless_Monkey: When I hear it restart, I assume transfer will happen, and I will go live.
stephnfosterkane: Dave - he can't get to the other side from here; has to be done that way. it's painful, but somebody has to do it
Bightrethighrehighre: You people are SOOOOOOOOOOO superstitious....
doctecazoid: built an atomic reactor out of legos
Johnny Piano: ...a wine for hand-to-hand combat
doctecazoid: problem is, the minute i turned it on, it melted
Jonathan: Monty python
llanwydd: it's just this little chromium switch here
doctecazoid: mom was royally pissed, what a mess to clean up!
Bone-E-Boi®: Is it true that the bouys once parked cars at the Los Angeles County Fair in Pomona, California? I've been to the fair. At the main entrance, there's a gigantic sign that says A FAIR FOR ALL. The sign that says LET'S EAT is located in Bakerfield, California, next to the Grapevine.
Dr.Headphones: doctec: i have that "boy scout who almost built a reactor" book on my wish list
Johnny Piano: You're right, Jonathan...
Jonathan: Nuit saint wogga wogga
stephnfosterkane: yes, Big -- any sufficiently advanced magic is indistinguishable from technology
Bightrethighrehighre: it melted in your hand, honest....?
Bone-E-Boi®: It's a big truck stop.
Bubba's Brain wonders where doc put his pile afterwards....
Bambi: follow the rubber line to your seat
Johnny Piano: bouquet like an aborigine's armpit
Dave: honk honk
doctecazoid: i was grounded for a week - but it was cool, i was able to read comix after bedtime without a flashlight
Bubba's Brain: ... atomic pile, that is....
Dr.Headphones: bub: where do you think preparation H came from? the H-bomb piles!
Johnny Piano: incredible simulation
stephnfosterkane: B-e-B: I thought that was where "Park and Lock It" came from, except they weren't really legal; they were just taking the money
llanwydd: has a kick on it like a mule
Jonathan: I heard somewhere that Monty Python and Firesign Theatre are rivals.
stephnfosterkane: I think that was in "Firesign Theater's Big Book of Plays" that I loaned out and never got back
Bightrethighrehighre: Bambi: caan you sit next to me....?
llanwydd: Chateaux Chunder
Johnny Piano: Bottle with a message in it, and the message is "Beware"
stephnfosterkane: somebody needs to make that book into a PDF file (hint)
doctecazoid: incredible stimulation
Bubba's Brain: Is the guy who transports the atomic waste from the reactor to the dump site a pile driver?
stephnfosterkane: Jonathan - rivals for what???
Rotonoto: ahhh- herr doktor headphones is back
Bambi: rivals? really...always thought of them more as counterparts really (monty python and FST)
Johnny Piano: Not true about the rivalry, Jonathan - I did however once recommend to Michael Palin that he should listen to FT
stephnfosterkane: different styles entirely
Bone-E-Boi®: You're saying the buoys defrauded people in the parking lot?
Dr.Headphones: klok: if i had it, i would do so. but no such luck
Bubba's Brain: rifles?
Jonathan: For comedy status i guess.
Bubba's Brain: they don't look like rifles...
stephnfosterkane: Pythons are much more reliant on visual tech and less sophisticated aurally
Dave: the first time I heard bozos, I put it on my portable CD player and washed a bunch of dishes, that was a trip
Bubba's Brain: .... we don't need no stinkin rifles....
Jonathan: You met micheal Palin?
ceas: true, klok
stephnfosterkane: that was my understanding from the story in the book, B-e-B
ceas: tv as opposed to radio guys
llanwydd: you know how Monty Python got famous, don't you? There were only 2 TV channels in Great Britain back then
Dr.Headphones: pardon me while i walk over to the yellow line
Jonathan: I know.
Johnny Piano: Wrote him a letter, Jonathan - he replied with a handwritten note - nice guy.
stephnfosterkane: I said (hint), Ken, not aimed at anyone. it may yet come to pass
Dave: I'm still a fan of both, but FST is easier to understand, I'll never really get the full impression of the ministry of silly walks unfortuneately
ceas: amazing, jp
llanwydd: Python is funny but they don't hold a candle to FST
Dr.Headphones: dave: it's way too visual and almost impossible to describe in words
doctecazoid: python basically figured out how to do a 'goon show' type thing on television
stephnfosterkane: What I read, they spent all night shouting "Park and Lock It! Not Responsible!"
Bone-E-Boi®: Monty Python's efforts to elude the censors at the BBC make Luna the killer whale seem like a slacker.
Johnny Piano: Just for info, I also got personal replies from Cleese & Idle
llanwydd: well maybe they hold a candle
Dr.Headphones: bone: i did like that article, thanks for mentioning it
Jonathan: You know, the Pythons say they don't perform anymore beacuse they're too old. Well some of the FT are even older!
Dave: there was this turtle, like Pratchett, I love Pratchett's books
ceas: good point re goons
Bone-E-Boi®: Someday, someone will do a TV show about the Pythons making fools of the BBC.
doctecazoid: lland: more like a zippo lighter
stephnfosterkane: Dave - it's 1-dimensional. It's a 1-time thing. You see it again, it's the same. Very funny, but no depth, no layers.
Clueless_Monkey: Well the sure did
Jonathan: The Pythons have no excuse!
Johnny Piano: I think the Pythons are missing part of their chemistry minus Chapman, kinda like the FT period less Ossman
Clueless_Monkey: I have 128 layers.
Dave: there's this great python episode where they say, "the BBC would like to apologize for the next announcement"
llanwydd: good one doc
Dr.Headphones: jp: the sum is more than its parts
Bone-E-Boi®: After all, the killer whale is only making fools of Canadians. That's not much of a challenge.
stephnfosterkane: Something like "Nick Danger" has about 6000 layers and you pull new stuff out of it the more you live and the more you learn. It's not static.
Clueless_Monkey: Wait til our Cd's and DVD's come out. Free MP3 on the site.
ceas: yes they did wonderful circular things like that
doctecazoid: johnny: i agree
ah,clem: ...
ceas: our?
Clueless_Monkey: if you like the samples and want the broadband, check the site for info.
doctecazoid: b-e-b: lol
Clueless_Monkey: Sometime.
Rotonoto: the pythons were much more physical comedians
Dave: that's true about the layers, I didn't think of that but it makes sense
Clueless_Monkey: notnow.
Johnny Piano: True, but the dynamic is different nonetheless
Clueless_Monkey: till larning how to do this stuff.
Jonathan: Nick Danger and the Case of the Missinf Yolks didn't have Ossman.
stephnfosterkane: B-e-B - with the BBC, that's not hard. I always expected a political cartoon with head of BBC shouting "Gilligan!"
Bone-E-Boi®: the killer whale is a physical comedian.
llanwydd: yeah, that was a drag when Ossman left. Good thing he's back
Clueless_Monkey: pie in da face
Clueless_Monkey: Yeah the visuals did not get on the album
Dr.Headphones: prima facie
Clueless_Monkey: My favorite was the three sider
ceas: and bootyfull
Johnny Piano: David was my personal connect with Firesign back when I got into them
Bone-E-Boi®: upper class twit of the year
Clueless_Monkey: that was so funny
Dave: then came the sponges
Jonathan: Maybe minus Bergman or Proctor .
Clueless_Monkey: It really ha three sides.
Clueless_Monkey: AH
stephnfosterkane: Sure, it's like Philip Glass said about "Oklahoma" - the climaxes and slow points come at the same place every time you see/experience it
Clueless_Monkey: ogg
Clueless_Monkey: live in pit
Clueless_Monkey: pit
Rotonoto: and they all fell over
llanwydd: Apples and oranges. Python was visual. Firesign is aural
doctecazoid: clueless: yes ... the cd version is missing that peculiar quirk
Clueless_Monkey: you can't type in th chat
Clueless_Monkey: oo slw
Clueless_Monkey: yah
Jonathan: I was in Oklahoma.
Bone-E-Boi®: I suppose even a Canadian is brighter than an upper class twit.
Dave: which python album has the 3 groves? I've been wanting to find that one for a long time
Don: national lampoon and Conception Corporation, also did some great "radio theatre"
Clueless_Monkey: Skybird is vision through audio
Jonathan: I played Ike Skidmore.
stephnfosterkane: Dave - but he said that if you see "Waiting for Godot" several times, you find new layers in it each time.
Clueless_Monkey: you watch us on the radio.
Clueless_Monkey: Nobody elsedoes this.
Clueless_Monkey: Yup
Johnny Piano: Ooooooklahoma where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain
Clueless_Monkey: God dot
Jonathan: My dad had that python album
Dr.Headphones: don: i have a fairly extensive collection of mp3 files from natlamp, love them all
Bightrethighrehighre: FST is third-eye A/V
llanwydd: National Lampoon"
llanwydd: as I was saying
Johnny Piano: Matching Tie And Handkerchief is 3-sided
Bubba's Brain watches "Waiting for Go-Bot" -- it's an anime
Clueless_Monkey: I have all the lampoon including the original NEW YORK ONLY broadcasts.
Clueless_Monkey: I collect.
doctecazoid: don: yes, i am fan of old cc and natlamp stuff - rhino put out a 2-cd set of all the cc stuff, it's great
Bone-E-Boi®: Did you know that Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder were in a film version of Ionesco's Rhinoceros?
llanwydd: NL was just a name used to sell products
Clueless_Monkey: My collection goes back to 1954
Merlyn: Yes, and I've seen it
ceas: conception corpse?
Johnny Piano: Both sides are labelled "side 2" and one has parallel grooves
Dr.Headphones: ah, monkey, you lucky dog, er, rhesus
Clueless_Monkey: Got a satchmo tv show from 4
stephnfosterkane: Dave - of course, Glass was trying to justify the complaints that his minimalist music was "monotonous" by claiming there was subtle variation in its textures.
Dave: it is? matching tie? hmmm
Merlyn: I remember zero grunting and pointing to his nose
Clueless_Monkey: Yup johnny
Clueless_Monkey )
Jonathan: And the wavin wheat can sure smell sweet when the wind comes right behind the raaaaiinn
llanwydd: and the products weren't even related. They had different people involved with each
Bone-E-Boi®: talk about physical
doctecazoid: clue: any chance of acquiring mp3s of some of that rare natlamp stuff?
stephnfosterkane: So Monkey, do you have Forbidden Planet?
Clueless_Monkey: me only fire monkey
Dr.Headphones: klok: i rather like glass' music, almost like firesign in that it is very layered
ah,clem: ..
Clueless_Monkey: my line died out in 3789992BC
ceas: not yet black obelist?
Clueless_Monkey: third asteroid hit.
Johnny Piano: The Nat Lamp albums "That's Not Funny," "White Album" & "End of World" are all on CD now
Dr.Headphones: way before raquel welch or jane fonda lived in those times
Clueless_Monkey: had to make new dna soup, JL got the spices and the shrooms.
stephnfosterkane likes some of the Glass operas and of course Koyannisquatsi
ceas: maltese?
Bambi: we have a video tape of Forbidden Planet ... taped from television
Clueless_Monkey: no the obelisk came after the 4th asteroid.
Jonathan: I like Einstien on the Beach.
Bone-E-Boi®: things have gotten so serious that I'm thinking in italics
Johnny Piano: Proctor was on that "Sex Drugs End of World" Nat Lamp album
Clueless_Monkey: TEEVEE it was so good in its day
doctecazoid: lili is in new zealand at the moment (14 hrs ahead, it's 3:25pm where she is)
ceas: really?
stephnfosterkane will take Anne Francis in a pinch, Dr. H
doctecazoid: she just IM'd me
Clueless_Monkey: but they broke it.
ceas: i didnt know that, and that's something i would know
Merlyn: Warning - new reaper installed...
Clueless_Monkey: But BBC is still good TV, and so is Paris.
Dave: never seen/heard any National Lampoon stuff
Jonathan: Peter Schickele did a parody called einstein on the fritz. It's Hilarious.
llanwydd: don't know if I said that clearly, but "National Lampoon" was just a name used to sell products that had nothing to do with each other. I was never impressed.
ceas: should we fear her?
Clueless_Monkey: We get TV from middle east.
Bubba's Brain: Run for your wives!
Rotonoto: (you could instead think parenthetically)
Dr.Headphones: bone: thatsa whata you hava to doa
Bone-E-Boi®: P.D.Q. Bach!
Johnny Piano: Gee, I may have to die for that new reaper
doctecazoid: lili is at work, but says if we stay on a while longer she may be able to join in
stephnfosterkane: I like the Knee Plays from Einstein on the Beach but it's 8 hours long live, so kind of hard to take
Clueless_Monkey: Well i just save it all for the nex occupant
Bambi: oh, no...new reaper ... unruly no doubt ... till he is broken in ;-)
Jonathan: Exactly!
Dr.Headphones: i did see jane fonda once live. anti-war rally in 1970, right in front of my dorm at college
Clueless_Monkey: happy new reap!
ceas: i thought radio, mag and parodies all excellent. their newspaper parody is one of the funniest things ive ever seen
Bightrethighrehighre: I'll still beat him....he'll fall right over....
Rotonoto: (it's all so unsolicitedly explanatory...)
Clueless_Monkey: oh there goes my tesla coil again.
doctecazoid: ah, actually she's working from her hotel room today so she may join us momentarily (no one looking over her shoulder)
Bubba's Brain: Don't fear the reaper!
ceas: what was jane doing in your dorm?
ceas: the fox trot?
Johnny Piano: The Lampoon had Bill Murray, Chris Guest, Belushi, Chevy, Gilda and various SCTV people involved
Bone-E-Boi®: no fun... four more years
||||||||| LiliMaori-NOT waltzes in at 11:58 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
stephnfosterkane: PS also did a parody of Koyannisquatsi on 1712 Overture (not to mention a rap parody)
ceas: foux trotsky?

Dr.Headphones: cat: rally in front of dorm. i WISH she had been inside my room!
Rotonoto: I saw her prerecxorded in Barbarella...

Clueless_Monkey: AH
Jonathan: Yes.
Clueless_Monkey: good flk
ceas: and every other boy your age, or most of them
Bubba's Brain: You may be a king or a lowly street sweeper, but sooner or later you dance with the reaper.
Johnny Piano: hi lo

LiliMaori-NOT: Hey, guys. Good to join the team with the knowledge that I can stay awake for a while.

Clueless_Monkey: Not as good as circle of iro.
Dave: wonder what the fst did for the whole "what do I think about the future" bit
Johnny Piano: 40, 000 men and women everyday...
Dr.Headphones: i'll say the only kiwi talk i know: kiri te kanawa
Clueless_Monkey: I know kikki stockhammer
stephnfosterkane: so, have they thrown you a hangi, Lili?
LiliMaori-NOT: Oh, please, SFK, I haven't even begun to learn Maori. Understanding the Kiwis can be difficult enough.
Clueless_Monkey: Amiga toaster BABE
doctecazoid: wow, this is great - i can chat w/lili in two windows at once!
Clueless_Monkey: my genlock needs fixin.
LiliMaori-NOT: No, what is a hangi?
stephnfosterkane: oh, they're perfectly understandable ;-))
Dr.Headphones: doc: when you're not even there at all!
Johnny Piano: Combination of friends and actual solicitation on the "future" comments, Dave
Don: well it's blue on my page
Jonathan: Dave: They were probably friends and family of the ft.
Clueless_Monkey: so I did a cheap and dirty hardware fix. The amiga was so much beter :(
ceas: oh how can you be in 2 windows at once if you're ...
Clueless_Monkey: ah, clem

LiliMaori-NOT: Modren tecdhnology, that's how.

LiliMaori-NOT: technology
ceas: hey lili!
Johnny Piano: Adrian Belew, Don?
Dr.Headphones: have never talked to foreign countries except for holland and canada a few times

stephnfosterkane: Lili -- are you listening to Skybird there?
LiliMaori-NOT: Hey, Cat. Good to see or hear or write you.
Rotonoto: the foreign countries aren't talking to us right now anyway
Bone-E-Boi®: David Bowie cut short his concert in Prague because of shoulder pains. Hope it wasn't a heart attack.

Bambi: 989-345-0735
stephnfosterkane: redundant -- all conference calls are inane
Clueless_Monkey: I would be on a walkabout except for this fading name deal

Bubba's Brain: 867-5309
LiliMaori-NOT: Good point, SFK.
Clueless_Monkey: Yeah but fun
Bubba's Brain: M-O-U-S-E

Bambi: did I spell that correctly Cat?
stephnfosterkane: um, skybird already started, lili, but we hope you'll listen...
Dr.Headphones: cat: no, better looking than molly :)
Clueless_Monkey: Hey we have one flat rate line and we eat it up like jellybeans!
LiliMaori-NOT: That'll go over well. Probably be the last gig I ever get in this quadrasphere.

LiliMaori-NOT: Listening now.
Clueless_Monkey: SPRINT has always loved me. I always got the back door freeaccounts on sprint.

stephnfosterkane ditched the phone company long ago; talks via cable now
Bambi: just wanted to make sure
Rotonoto: I was thrown outa the future today for violating Robots Rules, here I am stuck back in the present again...
Clueless_Monkey: Had a lady there that called me and gave me the offer. She was cool she sent me "erotic poetry" she ran that whole division.
LiliMaori-NOT: Take advantage of it, Clue. I had to do a project for those assholes, so take them for whatever you can.
Clueless_Monkey: Taught me all the "secret sprint words"
Dr.Headphones: the present, roto? what color is the wrapping paper?
stephnfosterkane is sad; Roto got a present and sfk didn't even get a lousy t-shirt
Clueless_Monkey: Don't listen to the telemarketers.
LiliMaori-NOT: Kare Kare? Splain this to me, Ricky.
Clueless_Monkey: We gave out all the "secret words on FNL"

Clueless_Monkey: no take the curtain.
Bob Hind: Wish him to the cornfield.
Clueless_Monkey: the box is always a donkey turd.
Clueless_Monkey: I know I was that man.
Bone-E-Boi®: Doctech and Merlyn will install an auto censorship program that will delete offensive and profance words.
ceas: here?
Clueless_Monkey: hey that came out wrong
Bob Hind: You can't say donkey turd on the internet, Monkey.
ceas: yeah, didnt tiny have that?
Bone-E-Boi®: profane
doctecazoid: if bush is trailing in the polls a month before the election, who wants to take bets on a sudden and devastation terrorist attack that results in the cancellation of the election?

Bubba's Brain: ... as in delete entire file....
ceas: ah, here is the anastasia line i quoted earlier

LiliMaori-NOT: Missed that entirely. Did go to an Irish pub to watch a rugby match. And I also went to the Lord Nelson, which is near Fort ST, and they make great beer there.
Clueless_Monkey: I have tapes of the original predator tests.
Clueless_Monkey: saw the actual full screen of the predator readouts.
c. ease: good work, ah clem
stephnfosterkane: Australia has promised to buy our F/A-18s, which have range of about 10 feet
Bambi: or early as it were ... here in the Michigan time zone
Clueless_Monkey: It will be on one of our DVD's after JL teaches me how to do the pronect.
Clueless_Monkey: Oh how I wish again I was in michigan.
Bone-E-Boi®: I should have asked him if he caught my usenet posts about The State of Animation.
stephnfosterkane: Aust's priority is long-range maritime attack, so once they phase out the 111s, they are screwed. The new planes can hardly raise Brisbane without refueling...
Bone-E-Boi®: I'm not a Linklater groupie. Seriously.
Bob Hind: Must go. Nite to all! Ty for the show n stuff!
Clueless_Monkey: I can only trust mpeg video, and I don't evne know if the new install plays thet either.
doctecazoid: well guys i really have to check out at this point - i'm fading fast
doctecazoid: nite bob
LiliMaori-NOT: What's even funnier is that they agreed to buy some other massive military equipment, but they don't know where to put it.
stephnfosterkane: is ROFL demonstration of American "persuasion" of our allies to buy totally unsuitable stuff
ah,clem: ...
Bambi: night Bob
Clueless_Monkey: I had many a friend who passed gas on the USAF plane.
doctecazoid: y'all have a great rest of the evening - great job clem
stephnfosterkane: hmmm - they've got a lot of places to put it in...
Bone-E-Boi®: Aust is Australia, not Austin, right? I can't imagine that Phil is phasing out F-111s
Rotonoto: nite guise
stephnfosterkane: hold, I MUST check where this stream stuff is going, as it's awful small
ah,clem: tks
Clueless_Monkey: I have video, and I have a radio that can go on the air force freqs with 3,000 watts PEP, but that would be wrong.
LiliMaori-NOT: BTW, did you know that the platypus is the only venomous mammal? Some Aussie trivia for you all.
stephnfosterkane: B-e-B - Phil may be in two places at once ;-)
Clueless_Monkey: My buddy would give me short calls and I would reply in AF jargon.
doctecazoid: nytol (zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.....................
||||||||| Catherwood says "2:35 AM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs doctecazoid by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
Rotonoto: don't cross the streams...
Clueless_Monkey: Cant do that now all teh satellite have GPS tracking on them
Bone-E-Boi®: Well, he likes NASCAR. I thought maybe he digs F-111s, too.
LiliMaori-NOT: Doc! You're leaving me!
Clueless_Monkey: nite doc.
Clueless_Monkey: I love this bit.
stephnfosterkane: no, Lili worked on F-111s and she was in Australia recently, which is one of the last places allowed to buy them that still has them running
stephnfosterkane: nite DT
Bambi: night doc
Clueless_Monkey: hablo espagnol chinga su madre!
Bone-E-Boi®: I live near crazier-than-a-March-hare Air Force Base.

stephnfosterkane: OUCH! First segment 19.1 MB!
Clueless_Monkey: und kofee und kuchen schmecken immer gut.
Clueless_Monkey: byt me eengleesh is not reeel gude.
stephnfosterkane: That's why the current one is about 2.3 MB...
Bone-E-Boi®: yes, there are black helicopters. Apaches. Actually, very dark green.
stephnfosterkane: Clem, there is one HECK of an archive of this show! ;-))
Clueless_Monkey: engleesh is not my first language
LiliMaori-NOT: Ok, I just put Doc to bed, which is not easy from where I am.
Clueless_Monkey: My first language is andorean
ah,clem: cool sfk
Clueless_Monkey: see e blue eye stalks?
Rotonoto: thanks for a bangup job of disc jockeying and all around merry streaming, guy...
Bambi: Cool, klok!

LiliMaori-NOT: So now I am going to go for cocktails and hors d'oevres.
Clueless_Monkey: and some shows I see with no commercials a couple days early fed from the LA studios.
c. ease: dove those whores
stephnfosterkane: Well, maybe not so cool Bambi; I was hoping to make it available via Ken, but half of Europe is banging on the door to his site
Clueless_Monkey: We publish a list of where the free TV is.
Clueless_Monkey: at SkyBirdRadio.org
stephnfosterkane: happy happy hours, Lili!
Bambi: don't want to miss the cheese log throw ;-)
LiliMaori-NOT: So, goodnight, guys. Bon soir.
Clueless_Monkey: most things are kinda hidden, but you click and you find.
Clueless_Monkey: By maori
||||||||| "2:39 AM? I'm late!" exclaims LiliMaori-NOT, who then runs out through the french doors and down through the garden.
Clueless_Monkey: givemy best to the marsupials.
Bambi: oh, no...that's right Klok ... drat
c. ease: stewart is getting like air america these days.
Bambi: night Lili...enjoy!
Rotonoto: that was a rather amazing development, Brian- ken a bigtime server czar and all...
Clueless_Monkey: uh, clam

||||||||| Phil Austin - dead from the common cold

stephnfosterkane: yeah the paws that refreshes or to refresh the pause...
Rotonoto: up to one half!
Rotonoto: nor could they depreciate for four more years...
Bone-E-Boi®: Does Phil read the newsgroup? I probably should have asked Phil if he'd read this... http://tinyurl.com/24zt2
c. ease: to some extent, bone
stephnfosterkane: who is "Pretty Quick"?
c. ease: micahel jordan?
stephnfosterkane: ah, out come the gelding pliers...
Rotonoto: thanks ah Clem- it's been a hoot!
stephnfosterkane: Yes, even SFK's tin ears can hear the owls in the distance...
Bone-E-Boi®: to some extent? in other words, he missed the animation thread.
stephnfosterkane: skybird stream is ANYTHING but "normal"...
Bone-E-Boi®: it itches, I must flee
stephnfosterkane: 3.5 MB+ in 2nd segment -- I think when connection dropped, the streamripper started a new archive
Bone-E-Boi®: maybe he's pretending that he missed it. or maybe he's pretending he didn't miss it.
stephnfosterkane: so 3.6 MB or so plus 19MB or so will be the final size of the archive, and that is with an AWFUL lot of stuff at the beginning not ripped
||||||||| 2:48 AM -- Bone-E-Boi® left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
