Bubba's Brain: The exposition hall is closed, but the training sessions are still going.
llanwydd: Funny. I dreamt about lobster last night. I usually don't
c ease: you can still expose yourself, doc
klokwkdog-OrangeAlert: it's just getting wound up, DT. we only reached quorum a few minutes ago. expect to raise Goshen afore midnite, yep
justanotherTweeny: Are we already gone?
Elayne: Yow, is that the time already? I'd best go, I need to rest up and get better for vacation...

Dr Headphones: later, e, get well soon
doctec: (this isn't even a regular pool league night, it was a makeup session postponed from july 5 - part of the independence day holiday weekend)
Bubba's Brain: I dreamt I saw Joe Hill last night, alive as you or me.
Dexter Fong: Night Elayne
c ease: are you there now, bun?
llanwydd: Speaking of Florida, John. I've worked on commercial shrimp boats down there
Piano John: Bye, E

Bunnyboy: They sold the rights for a U.S. version, but I expect it will be dreadful.
Piano John: Bun, you heard about the Marx Bros box coming in November?
c ease: odd, how that word has changed its meaning since that song
Dexter Fong: Night Tweeny
Charles Foster Dudley: Ta ta Tween

Bubba's Brain: I'm not an actor, but I play one on TV.

llanwydd: that collection would be worth getting
c ease: that's not something to be proud od, llan. some of them sucked
Charles Foster Dudley: Isn't that father, further?

Piano John: Merl, I assume you're referring to the edits made to the "seduction" of Thelma Todd scene
llanwydd: Horsefeathers was a short film wasn't it?
Merlyn: yep, Piano
Merlyn: A short-ish feature

Merlyn: Fields has been on TV much for decades now
Dr Headphones: guess i've lived a sheltered life, only seen the occasional part of marx bros. movie, never an entire one
Charles Foster Dudley: Ya know this reminds me very little of a time in the Estonian mountains ...

doctec: actually the line "take a wild guess" is the punchline of a laurie anderson anecdote re her airport security experience a few years ago
Dexter Fong: Joni? Hmm...I would have guessed Guy Mitchell
Lili_extraveler: BRB, there's a pussycat that wants to go out.
doctec: laurie was trying to get through customs with all the electronic gear she uses in her shows, and the customs people all thought she was smuggling illegal technology
doctec: so they asked her to hook it up and demonstrate what she used it for
Dexter Fong: Welp...hopefully enough touristas have left my overly popular neighborhood and I can park my car
Lili_extraveler: Guy Mitchell?!
Bubba's Brain: YEs, the electric violin can be used as a rocket launcher...
doctec: she pitched her voice down and said, in a very male-sounding voice, "this is my voice of authority"
c ease: thats happened to me
doctec: they asked her why she called it that
Lili_extraveler: And she said...
doctec: she surveyed the scene - with all the cops, and the guns, and the guard dogs - and she said: "take a wild guess"
Dexter Fong: Night all and Night Lili..nice to have you back where you belong
c ease: as always, dex
Bubba's Brain: Nite Dex.
||||||||| At 11:55 PM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Dexter Fong!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
Lili_extraveler: You're lookin' swell, Dexter, I can tell, Dexter...
doctec: cat: re plane flying over boat during poetry reading - i assume you want to somehow try and eliminate it?
doctec: in all likelihood, the nature of the sound of flying planes shifts too much in pitch and timbre to be removable using the cool edit noise reduction tool
c ease: doc, lets be more creative. i was thinking of the donavan line, fly jefferson airplane, getcha there on time. could not the image/sound be warped into something INteresting like that?
Lili_extraveler: In Engrish, that means.... never mind....
doctec: oh, so you want to try and USE the sound of the airplane
Lili_extraveler: BTW, has Phil shown his commentary tonight?
c ease: some dude babbling his poems on camera is about as interesting as reading a page, or less in this visual age? we talked about this alot during the shoot and we'l ltalk more. the uglt thing up on pot tv now is first draft, but the folks involved need something quick
doctec: well, depending on what & how you want to "warp" (or at the very least fade) the airplane sound into the lines of the song, i imagine it's doable. need more specifics to know what you have in mind
Lili_extraveler: Hey, doc, I'm watching Casino as we converse. Better be vewwy, vewwy careful in Vegas.
||||||||| It's 12:00 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Dave - dead from jaundice
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Lili_extraveler: OMG, they're dropping like flies.
c ease: not that tune i dont think. just speculating. the idea is that plane noise is bad, it's NOise! and the imafge of poet reading loses interest within seconds. so.....
Bubba's Brain: They're flying like drops.
doctec: lili dear: the movie "casino" is set in the '70s and depicts a las vegas that doesn't exist any more - in fact the whole end segment of the movie decries the fact that it has become so corporate-ized and family friendly
||||||||| Catherwood walks in wearing his pyjamas, yawns, and mumbles "It's midnight here in New York city"...then he falls over and starts snoring loudly..
c ease: ok, we'll discuss this outside the formal firesign chat.
c ease: how is your daughter, lili?
Lili_extraveler: I know! That's the worst part! It's Bushland!
doctec: yes cat, we can pick this thread up in email or via phone
c ease: the poet guy i was filming's day job is cabbie in hamilton. maybe she has been in his cab
c ease: she can watch the video and tell me. he need the feedback
c ease: not a poetry fan, but his pentameters were riveting
Lili_extraveler: Cat: she's doing well. She's been approved for a mortgage and she will have the house in her name I believe tomorrow, and they she can finally file for divorce. She's very excited about it.
Lili_extraveler: then
c ease: i'm exccited for her. so will be Fumiyo when I tell her
Lili_extraveler: How is Fumiyo?

c ease: we went for a walk with Icy this morning in a vast local canyon park. so her legs are gettting much better,. she wants to start climbing moutntains agiani as soon as possible
c ease: these many therapies she's explored have perhaps cumulatively, or termporaly combined to produce results
||||||||| Gusts of wind blow in from outside and the thumpa-thumpa-thumpa of helicopter blades is heard as Happy Panditt's chopper lands on the lawn and Dave disembarks at 12:05 AM.
Lili_extraveler: I'm glad to hear that, cat. I'm looking forward to seeing both of you again.
c ease: but living in a 3 story house with a fridge size dog is a bitch
Dave: my dog is going blind, so now there's two of us
Lili_extraveler: Why didn't you get a cat? They're a lot easier.
doctec and lili are both cat lovers, or can't you tell?
Dave: I love cats too, but my dad's alergic
Bubba's Brain loves cats too -- they're delicious!
Lili_extraveler: Too bad. So is doc's dad. But doc really enjoys my cats, and they enjoy him, too. Actually, anyone that can open a pull tab can....
Dave: "strange face with your eyes so pale and sincere, underneith you know well, you have nothing to fear,"
Bubba's Brain: I took on two cats for a year while their owner was spending a year in china... that was 4 years ago, she's still there, and so are they.
Lili_extraveler: Have you become attached to the cats?
Bubba's Brain: yes... they're basically mine now.

Dave: how do I know that they know where it is
Bubba's Brain: The rest is instinct.
Lili_extraveler: They are fastidious creatures and will dig and bury their stuff.
Bubba's Brain: Well, unless you have an open sandbox in your place, they will choose to use the litter.
Bubba's Brain: They are very different from dogs in that respoect.
Lili_extraveler: The difference between cats and dogs.
Lili_extraveler: Like men and women.
Bubba's Brain realizes the movie he's thinking about wiht Jeaneane Garroffolo is "the truth about...."
Lili_extraveler: Right, BB. Hey, doc, cat, BB, Dave, and dwarf, I have to do some paperwork and hit the sack. I have an insuranced guy coming over tomorrow morning, so I can't sleep in. (Dammit...)
