Dextre Fong: November Klok
Mr. Motion: Which ones Klock, the ones in Washington DC?
cease: no, that's richard arnold
klokwkdog: i thought there were a couple of weed jokes in Rat, Cat. However, the premise for the story is all from Conan Doyle, who was not too big on weed, apparently
llanwydd: Speaking of VT, I might get to see Yes at the Champlain Valley Exposition
klokwkdog: MM -- the elements of the Imperial Iraqi Army and Our Forces?
Dr Headphones: damn, llan, wish i could go too. enjoy it if you go
cease: yeah the coke jokes are a natural there. any dope humour in Lawyer's hospital or In the Next World? i never listen to them
Dextre Fong: Klok: AC was into Opium and Speed Balls, a mixure of cheese and port, IIRC
Dextre Fong: Cat: Don't believe there are
cease: Sesame Mucho is an extended dope joke, but too obscure
llanwydd: any port in the storm
klokwkdog: it was only recently that I discovered that Conan Doyle had actually mentioned an untold Holmes tale about the Giant Rat of Sumatra (so you won't feel alone, Ilan)
cease: i'll take some speed, and beat the queen to Perth
Dr Headphones: sesame mucho is a takeoff from the old song, "besame mucho"?

Dr Headphones: btw, the latest polls show 3% of american muslims support bush in election

llanwydd: I actually knew about the Giant Rat. I have read all of Sherlock Holmes
Dextre Fong: Klok: YOu simply must get the Bering-Gold volume..all the stories plus interspersed biograph...of both AC and Homes whom may believe may still be alive rasing bees in South Devon
klokwkdog: it was by chance that I saw the movie, The Seven Percent Solution which was helpful as I'd missed that in Sherlock Holmes (or my grade school maintained expurgated copies...)
Mr. Motion: Dr. are those the 3% under arrest?
cease: i thikn so many inthe audience were stoned for those plays, they naturally played dope humour to make them laugh
Dextre Fong: MM: lol
Dr Headphones: MM: you mean the 3% who are NOT under arrest? :)
llanwydd: GR was described as a story "for which the world is not yet prepared"
cease: bush's 3% solution= ralph nader
Mr. Motion: Ooops my mistake!
klokwkdog: It shows that 3% are really crazy
Dextre Fong: Ken: Don't forget about the undecideds beeing held secretely
klokwkdog: I wonder where Black Muslims come down on this stuff...
cease: he could give bush the election Again. see polls in minnesota, missouri, maine, nevada....
Dr Headphones: i have internet friend who runs talk radio show in south dakota of all places, asked me to research anti-patriot act web pages. i sent him list of google searches that added together were well over 100,000 hits
Mr. Motion: Cease if it wasn't for the rethuglicans Nader wouldn't have made the ballot in Michigan they went out and got the signatures...
llanwydd: It was in "His Last Bow" that he turned out to be a beekeeper
cease: some really great black dope
klokwkdog: Dexter -- Sounds good, like an Interpreter's Bible. But I still don't have my Annotated Alice yet...
Bone-E-Boi: I saw a 1967 movie about youth on pot called Mary Jane starring Fabian. It was so bad it was funny.
Dextre Fong: Ilan: There are a fairly large number of cases mentioned in the stories that were never written up by AC..other's though, have

Dextre Fong: Cat: I did not know JG was a Prison Warden
Mr. Motion: You mentioned the&5 solution I got that one and the West end Horror too.
cease: in the flick, dex
Dr Headphones: i still want to get the restored version of "reefer madness" on DVD
klokwkdog: Otto Preminger, Cat?? Sheesh
cease: yes
Bone-E-Boi: Mel Brooks was hipper than Timothy Leary and Mel never took LSD. However, he did name a character LSD in The Producers.
Dextre Fong: MM: I've been collecting the pastiches for a long time..hell, I got 3 different versions of Giant Rat
cease: read krassner's autobi
klokwkdog: i'm looking at the IMDB; whatta cast for a dud
llanwydd: what's your favorite SH story. Mine's "The Greek Interpreter"
cease: how do you know, bone? did he tell you?
Bone-E-Boi: Oh shit, I'm sorry. I'm not supposed to mention Mel Brooks because he stole a Grammy from the boys.
cease: it's all greek to me
Dr Headphones: bone: doesn't offend me at all. too many to pick one winner, it's somewhat arbitrary, i think
Dr Headphones: llan: i last read SH in jr high school, don't remember a lot of them
Bone-E-Boi: It's intuitively obvious, cease.
Dextre Fong: Ilan: I've been reading nothing but the recreations etc for a number of yours, can't recall
Mr. Motion: Wow I just have a copy of them as they appeared in the Strand and a couple of books from the teens that have about a dozen stories in them.
klokwkdog: Carol Channing doing a strip tease???
cease: i used to teach league of red headed men
||||||||| It's 10:30 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Agent Orange Number Ten - dead from the yaws
||||||||| Elayne - dead from Intense demonic possession
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Bone-E-Boi: I wonder about Buck Henry, though.
Dr Headphones: damn, the demons got elayne too
Mr. Motion: We all wonder about Buck Henry!
Dr Headphones: i loved him in catch 22. perfect for that role
Bone-E-Boi: And Orson Welles. He was a bigger and better director than Otto Preminger.
llanwydd: Elayne just died! How can you guys make jokes?
klokwkdog: he did OK in The Player
Mr. Motion: Dr H theres a movie I need to get on DVD!
Dr Headphones: llan: e would have wanted it that way
klokwkdog: certainly bigger, BEB
Dextre Fong: MM: Finding the re=creations (pastiches) is what's hard....if they're filed alphabetically, you don't know unless youve already read a book by that author
Bone-E-Boi: At a time like this? Tell me it's no true about Elayne.
Dr Headphones: MM: i tossed a coin last time i bought DVDs, got "apocalypse now redux" instead of "22"
klokwkdog just got his first DVD movies ever
cease: redux is better. catch 22 should have remained a book
llanwydd: yes she died of the same thing she died of last week
Dextre Fong: KLok: I'm sure there's a story behind your first acquisition =))
Dr Headphones: cat: book much better, yes, but movie was good in its own quaint way
klokwkdog: ken - I haven't see all of AN, but I'd get it before Catch-22. If you've read the book, it's OK, but the book much much better
Mr. Motion: Dr. As a foremer Youth-in-Asia been there and done that although Brando has a certain Je ne sais quoi I must admit!
Bone-E-Boi: tiny death or in the theatrical sense?
klokwkdog: yes there is, Dexter
cease: arkin was good as yossarian, true, but it had none of the brilliance of the book
Dr Headphones: brando was one crazy mo-fo in that movie, for sure
cease: at least LOR had 300$ mill worth of special effects
llanwydd: I dont know either
Bone-E-Boi: Could be both. She flopped and had an orgasm.
Dr Headphones: orgasm is sometimes called "the little death"
Mr. Motion: I never go to movies if I've read the book. For example Lord of the Rings really pissed me off.
llanwydd: I was never impressed with the method actors
Dextre Fong: "Le petit morte"
llanwydd: I never liked Brando's voice either
cease: yes, i was anoyed at the liberties they took with the books, but it was very visualy entertaining
klokwkdog: oh, it was OK, MM -- I liked that better than Catch-22 movie, 4 sure
Bone-E-Boi: If you've read Slaughterhouse-Five, see the movie.
klokwkdog: righto- there they match, BEB
Dextre Fong: I don't read *or* go to the movies..I have one of my assistants tell me what's important
Dr Headphones: bone: never done either one. it's been on my "to do" list for years, never got a copy though
cease: i agree bone. one case where a flick is a good as the book and its a great book
klokwkdog: Catch-22 should've been done as a 26-episode TV series, at least
klokwkdog: Same with Posession
Mr. Motion: I liked the movie and although the book was mucch better I don't hate the movie as I do Hanibal, Jurassic Park or LofR.
Dr Headphones: klok: or 10 years like M*A*S*H?
klokwkdog: LOL, Dex
cease: yes the flick was much better than the book and the tv series even better
Bone-E-Boi: All of this has become so... obscure.
Dextre Fong: MM: Did you *read* Hanibal?
llanwydd: I go by the same rule MM. But the movie of "Lost Horizon" was as good as the book
cease: i'm glad the firesign never got into making flicks
llanwydd: the original I mean
Dr Headphones: i watched hannibal while eating. what a mistake......
klokwkdog: well, MASH 'way overstayed its creative juices IMO. It ended up like ER or something with this rotating cast and soap opera characters
cease: i know the tried, but the stars were aligned against them, or some such
Mr. Motion: Yes my favorite book of the 3 Dex although Red Dragon was great as well.
cease: i disagree klok. i thought it got much better as it went along
klokwkdog: Cat - I could never figure out how they'd make a good movie of any of the records
Bone-E-Boi: I'll just fade away.
klokwkdog: They'd have to start with fresh material
Dr Headphones: cat: 7 years would have been enough, i think
Bone-E-Boi: Nite.
cease: they tried with eyk which i havent seen, or only small parts of
Mr. Motion: Ta ta bone
Dr Headphones: bone: don't go away mad...just go away ;)
Dextre Fong: MM: well, can't say the same...Loved both RD and SIlence and really hated Hanibal, thought the author fell in love with his chacter
cease: by bone
llanwydd: I'll never read an Ian Fleming novel because I've seen all the movie versions
||||||||| At 10:38 PM, Bone-E-Boi runs out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
klokwkdog: I think, though, that the major FST albums really deserve to be made into animations
cease: books are actualy better
Dextre Fong: Nib\ght BonEEee
klokwkdog: in the case of James Bond, the movies are much, much better, but that's not saying much
Dr Headphones: and niblets to you, dex
Dextre Fong: Nib\ight
cease: i disagree, klok. i think if the lads are ever to do cinema, it should be new project, not addiing visuals to their records
Mr. Motion: Hanibal explained Hanibal well at least it did in the book i.e. the most import bit of the trilogy they left out not to mention that awful ending. Hanibal was a love story!
Dr Headphones: first james bond i saw, double feature at drive in, was tripping on acid, didn't know when one ended and other began
cease: they've tried numerous times. just never really succeeded.
Dextre Fong: Ken: Were you in the trunk?
llanwydd: interesting idea about animated firesign
Dr Headphones: dex: back seat, just smiling and groovin' to the music
klokwkdog: no cat, apples and oranges. anything movie they do ought to be new, but I'd really like to see a well-done animation of the albums
cease: i dont think so, llan
llanwydd: should probably "leave it to the japs"
Dr Headphones: anime firesign? hmmmm.........
cease: let the albums live in our heads, where they belong
Dextre Fong: "Everything you-a know, Joe, is Anime
cease: i dont know why all the fuss about anime. it's NOT THAT GOOD
Dextre Fong: We all-a got-a big Roundeyes
cease: disney was doing better 50 years ago
klokwkdog: cat - but much of this material was originally staged, with minimal sets and costumes
llanwydd: I agree cat. But something original, maybe
cease: firesing albums? no, it was composed for the albums originally, then staged
Mr. Motion: I'd like to put all the albums on stage. Get a theatre that seats4000 says in some hip metro area and put on 3 or 4 plays a year.
klokwkdog: Cat - I'm sure Walt thinks so...he's dead now (or frozen or whatever)
cease: its been done, motion
Dr Headphones: disneysicle
cease: or at least some of them have been performed in la, if not elsewhere
Dextre Fong: I have a sneaking suspicion that like mime on radio, Firsign technique won't truly translate to another medium very easily, if at all
cease: we rented Sprited Away and though i got off on all the japanese refs, i kept thinking this is just disney, really bad disney
cease: exactly, dex
Mr. Motion: I was thinking more along the lines of NYC or Chicago I would imagine it was done SF too was it not?
klokwkdog: Dex - Stan Freberg had acrobats on radio -- the Zazalov Family
Dr Headphones: i've done mime on radio. it's called "dead air"
Dextre Fong: Cat: Never saw the fab 4 or Proctor and Bergman when there wasn't a little staging, costume, SFX and Lighting
llanwydd: that's even better! the 2nd through 4th FST albums in one long stage play
Dextre Fong: Klok: I heard 'em or heard of 'em
Dextre Fong: Yeah Ken: But you're a natural
klokwkdog: Yeah, Dex, but it's darned hard to have a Zeppelin there; quite easy in animation
Dr Headphones: dex: it happens when you put on 4 min song and have 5 min shit break
Mr. Motion: Zepplin do you think this is a Zepplin Many play Planet X!
Dr Headphones: i learned then that i would use either "layla" at 7min11sec or "macarthur park" at 8min something
cease: iv'e seen them live maybe half a dozen times. they're ok
cease: but spaulding gray was infinitely better, and he just sat there and talked
klokwkdog: There is something sickening that's opening on Broadway now or soon, some pop culture thing made into a musical. I forget what it is, but my jaw dropped at how they're barrel-bottom scraping
Dr Headphones sings: "someone left the cake out in the raaaaaaaain"
llanwydd: oh no!
Mr. Motion: I always used Free Bird or Alices Resturant if I wanted a break.
Dr Headphones: MM: our station didn't get quite that radical
klokwkdog: the canonical one is Arlo Guthrie, Ken
cease: i have a version of alice's restaurant i'
cease: i'm gonna play on pot tv, called Alice's multi-coloured rainbow roach
Dr Headphones: i did segue from sinatra to jethro tull once, stn mgr called me up on phone, said "no, no"
Mr. Motion: Bummer dude I was always AOR when I was in de air!
llanwydd: hey, blast from the past! I was a DJ too

klokwkdog: he's conjugating himself
Mr. Motion: Well then we could all form a liberal radio network we could call it fair America or sumethin'?
llanwydd: It was a very good year...but it's an old day now
cease: no, i have a wife to do that, klok
klokwkdog: yeah, Cat, it's like stages in the life cycle of coat hangers
cease: i forgot all about air america for the past hour or more
Mr. Motion: Could you conjugate the verb "ber" for us Klock?
klokwkdog: one day, you just have to be a DJ; it's part of growing up
Dexter ''Fiddler'' Fong: Today Holding up a coat...tomorrow, Serving the pro-choice movement

Dexter ''Fiddler'' Fong: Ken: National Steel
Mr. Motion: No I barely speaks. Anglander
klokwkdog: if Cat's not back in a minute, we can assume that the cats have become perhaps somewhat larger?
Dr Headphones: never saw steel fiddle before, bet it sounds, er, interesting
Dexter ''Fiddler'' Fong: Duarable too
Mr. Motion: I saw a fiddler crab steal once
Dr Headphones: klok: coroner's reports indicate that dogs wait a week to eat their master, cats start in 3-4 days
klokwkdog: steal first, MM?
Dexter ''Fiddler'' Fong: Got a great big horn type thing like a Victrola on it
llanwydd: goin to get a cough of cuppee. brb

formallity: before my time, I hear there was something back then calle loods?
Bunnyboy: Be a Peaceful Republican Convention Protestor, and receive a vintage commemorative WIN WIN WIN button!
Dextre Fong: Form: Just remember, you gotta stick it out if you wanna start young
Dr Headphones: ludes a/k/a 714s. good stuff if you just wanted to sit around with your eyes half closed and feel like doing nothing
formallity: that's very logicall
Bubba's Brain: Luden's -- don't let anyone fool you, they were cough drops.
llanwydd: I graduated high school in 79
Dr Headphones: if you took half a 714, it was a 357 (do the math)
Dextre Fong: I hear they busted the Smith Borthers
llanwydd: I sure loved the 70s. You really missed something, formality
cease: i think the convention is gonna send bush's poll up anyway, and if any weirdness happens outsid the convetoion, it'll be a gift to bush
Bubba's Brain: And here I thought 714 was an op-amp....
Dr Headphones: hell, i missed most of the 70s being stoned
formallity: i would have been in a funk band
Dextre Fong: Yeah, enough wierdness inside
Bunnyboy: Aw! RIP Elmer Bernstein.
Dextre Fong: Bubba: It is and a parrticularly noisy one too
llanwydd: I was in a couple of bands. Guitar.
Dr Headphones: but cheap and easy to interface
llanwydd: First one was The Shabby Acres Band
formallity: I like how everyone is already talking about the riots at the convention and it's impact
cease: rip, my last bottle of Okanagan Crisp Apple cidre. i saved it to drink with y'all
Bubba's Brain: Yes -- but almost all there was circa 1980.
Dextre Fong: Yep, just not an optimal choice for high=end audio or video equip
llanwydd: that will give you an idea of how it sounded
Dextre Fong: Cheers, Cat
Dr Headphones: i was never *in* a rock band, but i owned a cargo van and was official roadie for one for many months
llanwydd: I missed the riots. what happened
cease: yes, many cheers have been had with this wondrous cidre, with elayne and doc and lili and tiny dr. tim, among others.
Dr Headphones: llan: best ones were chicago, '68
Dextre Fong: TV sets, man..the woman would carry 6 or 7 TVs on their heads
cease: but they changed the recipe. the new one's undrinkable.
formallity: I mean the riots that probably will happen
cease: i live in van. does that count?
llanwydd: about a million guitarists kept joining the Shabby Acres Band so I left
Dextre Fong: Only to 10 Jugcat
Dr Headphones: heads will be beaten, rubber bullets (maybe even some real ones) fired, lots of wire-tie/handcuffs used
cease: lol
llanwydd: then they asked me to come back as the singer and things really took off
formallity: reminds me of chicago in march of 2002
cease: i remember chicago vividly. i fear repeat
Dr Headphones: i have never been asked to sing in a band. good thing, too
formallity: good times
cease: if they have to provoke it themselves. hey, what an original idea!
Dr Headphones: "the revolution WILL be televised"
cease: but gil scott heron won't
||||||||| 11:31 PM: Bubba's Bounced Brain jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past hour!"
Dextre Fong: Embedded rteporters
formallity: I WILL be able to stay home, young brother
Bunnyboy: Say, one of the truly great dark comedies is back on video. AFTER HOURS.
cease: like the ever mutlplying orange agent of earlier
Dr Headphones: ah, out of the smog and into the fog with paul desmond and the MJQ :)
Dextre Fong: WHo and what's that Bun
Bubba's Bounced Brain: Damned dialup.
klokwkdog: bubba - I thought that was the 741, not 714, and it wasn't that noisy
Dr Headphones: bub: a media mogul such as yourself should have high-speed connection
Dr Headphones: klok: i think you're right about the number of the beast, er, op-amp there
llanwydd: may I ask a political question of possibly monumental import?
Bubba's Bounced Brain: actually, you're right. just my dyslexia
Bunnyboy: Dex: It's a Martin Scorsese film from 1985. It'll make you wanna think twice about partying in the Big City.
Dr Headphones: certainly, llan
Dextre Fong: If it's one of my talking points, Ilan
Dr Headphones: just remember imports have to balance exports
klokwkdog: wasn't really until the Signetics 5558 that things got relatively quiet. Now, they're ungodly so, but the packaging is the size of dust
Dextre Fong: Thanks Bunny, I *am* in the Big City but I dont=a party no more
Bubba's Bounced Brain: Fond of 5532's myself.
klokwkdog: by all means, Ilan
formallity: is it multiple choice?
klokwkdog: yeah, them's good, 2
Dr Headphones: lol, form: answer "c", it's always "c"
Dextre Fong: See?
llanwydd: The conservatives tell me they dislike change, they liberals tell me they favor progress. What do you call someone who favors changing what needs to be changed and leaving everything else as it is. I've always wanted to know.
cease: yes, i would like to see your city again, dex
formallity: that's how I got in to open admissions college
Dr Headphones: a realist?
cease: just saw the vermeer flick and heard interview with new yorker writer of vermeer in bosnia
Bubba's Bounced Brain: I wrote that before I saw yours -- same amp, different number per chip....
Dextre Fong: A Mug-Wump?
cease: i hear there are som evermeers in museums in ny.
klokwkdog: who gets to decide what "needs to be changed", Ilan?
Bunnyboy: AFTER HOURS is one of the best comedies of the 1980's.
||||||||| 11:35 PM: Bubba's Bounced2 Brain jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past hour!"
formallity: underwear, lightbulbs, and land reform where by the peasants will have cheap land and low taxes
llanwydd: when I asked that of a conservative he was too stunned to answer
Dextre Fong: Cat: Yes, and in Boston too, though not as many as they once had =\
Dr Headphones: a plethora of bubbas
Bunnyboy: "Any eggs for Fats?"
cease: llan, why do we need such categories?
formallity: just kidding
Bunnyboy: Sorry. Mugwump got me.
cease: oh really?
llanwydd: well I hope we all get to decide
Dr Headphones: only if by "we" you mean the people with money/power
Dextre Fong: Mug-Wump gets everybody Bun
llanwydd: well, I dont observe the categories but so many of us are either liberal or conservative
Dextre Fong: I'm a Lbrium
Dr Headphones: http://www.theadvocates.org/quiz.html
Bunnyboy: Any cure for these prehensile piles?
Dr Headphones: i'm a gemini
Bunnyboy: They just grab, and won't let go!
||||||||| 11:37 PM: Bubba's Bounced3 Brain jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past hour!"
Dextre Fong: Hey anyone: What can you tell me briefly aout a site called Factcheck?
Bunnyboy: Head: That makes 2 of us! ; )
Dr Headphones: dex: non-partisan, roasts dems as well as repubs. good place
Bubba's Bounced3 Brain: Bubba, bubba, whose got the bubba.
Dextre Fong: Thanks Ken
llanwydd: It still confuses me to see Limbaugh's and Frankens who think they are completely right
Dr Headphones: i get their newsletter, will forward next one to you if you desire
Dextre Fong: Ilan: It's not that Franken is completely right, it's that Limbaugh is completely wrong and doesn't even believe what he says
llanwydd: Do you think maybe I have missed the concept of left and right?
Dr Headphones: i hadn't deleted today's yet, just sent to you
Bunnyboy: Mr. OCD (that's me...sorta...no, DEFINITELY!) picked up LATELINE : THE COMPLETE SERIES, Al Franken's failed sitcom from the late 90's.
||||||||| It's 11:40 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Bubba's Bounced Brain - dead from pneumonia
||||||||| Bubba's Brain - dead from jaundice
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Dr Headphones: llan: do the quiz i posted above. adds another dimension to politics
Dextre Fong: I shall now place "Dextre" in the I'm away category whilest I park a car
Bubba's Bounced3 Brain: Two of my down, two to go.
llanwydd: I agree limbaugh will say what his constituents want to hear
formallity: Getting back to the seventies, I hear there was an unpopular war which most pollitions realized was an irriverisble mistake but they still plugged through
Dr Headphones: pahk the cahr in hahvahd yahd
Bubba's Bounced3 Brain: me
klokwkdog: happy parking, Dex
Bubba's Bounced3 Brain: not my
Dr Headphones: form: that's an understatement! damned near ripped the country apart
Bunnyboy: I always look back fondly on the "Late Buddy Hackett" episode, where the newsroom gets the tip that Hackett is dead, and go scrambling for tribute footage...only to find out Buddy's still alive!
llanwydd: well, kend, I'll do the quiz later when I can see the whole log.
formallity: what was that like?
llanwydd: thanks for pointing it out
formallity: I can't imagine
Bunnyboy: Miguel Ferrer, shouting from the control room:
cease: sounds like bob hope's last years
cease: the rumours of my death have been vastly exaggerated
Dr Headphones: it's put out by the libertarians, tears asunder the entire "left-right" continuum
cease: anyone read the new yorker article on that?
Bunnyboy: "Get me Sha-POO-PIE!!!"
Dr Headphones: form: the war was what actually brought down nixon. PRAISE THE LORD!
cease: you think so, kend?
formallity: It was'nt Debbie Does Dallas or whatever the persons name was?
klokwkdog: nixon brought down nixon
Dr Headphones: yeah, cat. plumbers formed for ellsburg, who leaked the pentagon papers
Bunnyboy: Ah, I'm beat. Nighty!
Dr Headphones: nixon then used them on dems
cease: oh, right
formallity: night
Dr Headphones: g'nite, bun
klokwkdog: nite Bun
cease: but that's rather tangential
cease: it wasnt peoples disgust with nixon's war that got him out
Bubba's Bounced3 Brain: nite Bun.
Bunnyboy: So, what's the point?
cease: more so lbj
cease: bun
llanwydd: where did formality's post go
Dr Headphones: mcgovern was the peace candidate, they HAD to beat him by hook or by "i am not a" crook
||||||||| Bunnyboy departs at 11:44 PM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
cease: eggs ackley
cease: the war was popular, even in 72
Dr Headphones: hmmm, don't remember much about debbie does dallas after the first few minutes. it somehow led to other things besides watching the movie screen ;)
cease: much antipathy toward the anti-war hippiues, counter culture druggies, et al.
cease: i was the target of it often enough
klokwkdog: nixon's "secret plan to end the war" got him in office; then he slaughtered thousands of American boys and Vietnamese 'cause he lied
formallity: What brought down nixon was proof that he authorized hush payments to convicted criminals
Dr Headphones: cat: afraid i have to disagree there. highly unpopular except with the ruling class/military-industrial complex. by that time, 50K dead and no win in sight
cease: hey, where have i heard that recfently?
formallity: I read that in a book or something
llanwydd: well , form, about the war. I remember it from the 10 o'clock news on channel 5. They had "The Honor Roll". It was a list of the soldiers who had been killed within the last 24 hours and the names would pass by so fast you could hardly read them and it seemed like they were never going to end
Dr Headphones: well, form, that's the legal reason, but the war was the center of it all. just my opinion, but shared by millions
cease: ok, you were there, i was in japan listening to fen, the army's proganda and the japanese papes which relflected japan's geting rich selling sonys to the army.
cease: but for whatever reason, nixon creamed mcgovern.
Dr Headphones: mcgovern was a nice guy and nixon was a bastard. that's just one of the reasons
formallity: the war was popular in 72? That's right he gave a rally the troops speach or something
cease: too dovish, as goldwater was too hawkish against the more peaceful lbj in 64
klokwkdog: true enough, formal, but the truth is, the man himself was flawed -- he brought it all on himself. Sometimes he was a captain Queeg character being manipulated by Fred McMurray, but mostly, his flaws conspired to destroy him, whatever the actual, er, formal reason
Dr Headphones: the worst poster boy for the quakers you could ever find
llanwydd: Walter Cronkeit was often over there reporting and I'd see prisoners of war and grass hut. I didn't understand all the implications of it until it was almost over
formallity: My 3 sons fred mcmurray
formallity: ?
cease: you're right, klok. i agree with tolstoy, what happens is not the result of history or one person. they intertwine
klokwkdog: same guy -- watch The Caine Mutiny, great movie
Dr Headphones: when walter eventually turned against the war, nixon told someone "we've lost it now"
cease: earlier talk about books flicks. that one was both as good
Dr Headphones: better yet, read the book! so much better than movie
llanwydd: It was lost before it started
formallity: Bush won't be able to "rally the troops" with a speech like nixon did
cease: if the tin drum had been a 2-parter, it would have been the best translation of book to screen i'd ever see. unfortunately, it was not to be
Dr Headphones mutters, "who ate my strawberries?"
||||||||| It's 11:50 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Bubba's Bounced2 Brain - dead from the fiddlers
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
formallity: It would be funny if he did though
Dr Headphones: bush can't speak 5% as well as nixon did
cease: not to mention reagan, who was mesmerizing, to those who wanted to be mesmerized
llanwydd: kerry's a better speaker than bush but bush has a better voice
formallity: that's true, the checkers speech was the first pure bullshit moment in television
formallity: a watershed for pollitics
Dr Headphones: well, one of the first. i think FDR was on experimental TV during the 30s ;)
llanwydd: but I think kerry will slaughter bush in the debates
cease: i think in some abstract way, bush, or the bush product, is more likable than kerry, who seems to be trying too hard to be your friiend
Dr Headphones: cat: yes, that's true, i think.
formallity: that's what we thought about gore
Dr Headphones: many of the "little people" think he's one of them.
cease: form, there is no first moment.
Dr Headphones: kevin philips on NOW with bill moyers tomorrow night on PBS, i'd highly recommend it. he's a great author and pretty good interview subject also
formallity: i guess your right, I don't know much about shit like that but it seemed like the brown standard
cease: time, like light, is both particle and wave.
Bubba's Bounced3 Brain: Am I still here?
klokwkdog: nominally, Bubba
Bubba's Bounced3 Brain: Wow!
Dr Headphones: form: you're old enough to vote, and you're registered and going to do it, i hope?
cease: now is the only reason to own a tv
Bubba's Bounced3 Brain: "The government came in like they were raiding Afghanistan, helicopters and the whole nine yards," says a Terlingua guitar picker and singer who says his name is "Uh, Clem." (He named himself after a character on Firesign Theater, a counterculture radio program that was popular in the 1970s. The locals address him as just "Clem.")
klokwkdog: time isn't real; it's a derived quantity
formallity: its same day registration right?
cease: yes, i read that
Dr Headphones: cat: i love that show, never miss it unless it's pledge week. i know, friday night is not when you're supposed to watch tv, but i don't have much of a life either
llanwydd: I don't think that tells the whole story cat. Waves can be made of particles
klokwkdog: don't wait to find out, form
Dr Headphones: form: some states, yes, but check at least 30 days ahead of time in your state
cease: there are things called vcrs, kend
cease: at least 20 years now
cease: maybe 30
Dr Headphones: alas, mine doesn't record. it plays
klokwkdog: Ilan - I just don't like the ones with jellyfish...
formallity: wait I missed that what was that ahclem thing from
klokwkdog: Bozos
klokwkdog: they think he is Chinese
formallity: i mean i know its from bozos but the quote
klokwkdog: yet, he outranks them...
Dr Headphones: bubba: whence comest that quotation?
cease: oh,i wish i could tape my participation in next week's chat, i'll be off next week, may be home earlier enough if anyone is still here but we'll see
llanwydd: got to stay away from those waves. They have dangerous particles
Dr Headphones: cat: we will send you a handsome simulfax copy
||||||||| 11:57 PM: Basic Bubba jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past hour!"
cease: in the folloiwing e-day, i'm sure
formallity: I voted for gore so I'm dissillusioned
Dr Headphones: basic bubba? i thought you were cobol now....
formallity: but it can't happen again right? (gut laughs)
Dr Headphones: never regret a vote. only regret if you don't.
Basic Bubba: KC Star.
llanwydd: basic bubba? Without your brain?
formallity: cool
Basic Bubba: Actually, Perl now...
Dr Headphones: thomas jefferson (i think) said: "the majority may not always be right, but they are always the majority." little did he realize that he was talking about the supremes
cease: better than being cynical, form
Basic Bubba: http://news.google.com/news?hl=en&edition=us&ie=ascii&q=firesign -- found links to the KC article, and other interesting stuff.
Dr Headphones: my first vote was for mcgovern in 72, absentee ballot because that bastard nixon drafted my ass and i was in basic training. i don't hate anyone, but he was the nearest to it i ever got, i think
formallity: anyone heard of greg pallast?
cease: we don't need tom paine to tell us it is better to fight and lose than lose without fighting, though his voice is sorely needed now
cease: indeed, form.
Dr Headphones: oh yeah, palast is good stuff. u.s. media won't have him, so went to bbc
||||||||| 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..
cease: often on the radio
formallity: sorry to bring up 'nam
Dr Headphones: catherwood: set your damned clock!
Dr Headphones: 'nam is still a hot subject among us olde pharts
klokwkdog: definitely, form, listen to him a lot
formallity: yeah so thats why I'm cynical, I reat that book
llanwydd: got to go to bed. Tell Phil I said hi
klokwkdog: Ken - NYC has different time...
Dr Headphones: later, llan
llanwydd: nytoll
Dr Headphones: yeah, klok, i'm in the "8 minutes behind NYC" time zone here :)
klokwkdog: fewer jellyfish in the waves, I guess. nite Ilan
formallity: c ya
Basic Bubba: Nite Il..... or should we say Kim Jung...
Dr Headphones: bubba: that's two ells, not eye ell. he's welsh but we already forgave him for that
formallity: he's the cuddliest dictator
Dr Headphones: our beloved leader!
klokwkdog: no, Ken, NYC is 8 minutes ahead of us -- that's why it always looks fuzzy
Dr Headphones: with his elevator shoes and pompadour hairdo
formallity: Papa comes in second
cease: i thought that was the doppler effect
klokwkdog: too short, form; he can't get no respect
formallity: you just know kim does a mean elvis
Dr Headphones: lol, "ruv me tendah"
klokwkdog: Ken - are you going to rip off the whole Dylan song?
Dr Headphones: dylan song?
Dr Headphones: 'fraid i'm lost there
klokwkdog: I gotta find the lyrics, then
Dr Headphones: i'm not a huge dylan fan. good poetry, sorry singer
cease: there's only one, klok?
cease: i used to sing his songs to myself waiting for rides hitching accross endless canada long ago
klokwkdog: maybe more, but I was thinking of "Just like a woman"
cease: long songs. funny songs. shortened the long waits
Dr Headphones: i honestly don't think i own any dylan except covers by other artists
cease: tom waits for no one, but his songs are too short and not funny enough
formallity: the jellyfish woman all sneeze saying please I can't find my knees
Basic Bubba: Aint it just like the night to play tricks when you're trying to be so quiet?
klokwkdog: wake up, Cat - they installed ends on Canada years back. I think the autobahns still lack speed limits, but Canada got ends
formallity: that's from the same song
Dr Headphones: speaking of musical artists of the 60s (for $200, alex), i listened to some john pizzarelli doing beatles songs. good covers
cease: when you're waiting a day for a ride in the middle of a forest that's a thousand miles long, or a praite that's longer, no, there are no ends, klok. not to your immediate experience
Basic Bubba: same as what --- I missed some of the conversation.
Dr Headphones: cat: i've never hitched more than 100 miles at a time, but i bet that's almost scary at times
klokwkdog: like hitching across the Nullarbor, eh?
formallity: blond on blonde

formallity: I like how some of his lyrics make sense and some are goofy
Dr Headphones: the common cold, bubba
Basic Bubba: Oh... I missed it... you quoted d just before I quoted D. Visions of Johanna from Blood on the Tracks.
cease: well, if my flick is successful, you'll find out 1-how scary it can be 2-why do it at all
Dr Headphones: i think the only lyrics of his that i read recently was a song about war profiteering but dont' remember title
Basic Bubba: Or the common code.
formallity: Visions is from blond on blond
cease: yet in a mythic humourous way. well, we'll see.
Basic Bubba: Masters of War?
formallity: let's fight about this
Basic Bubba: You're right.
cease: i used to know lots of songs from that, form. just havent needed them in a long time, thank grid
Dr Headphones: yes, bub, that's it
formallity: i know what you mean, you made a flicker
formallity: ?
Dr Headphones: sci-fi channel has "in search of" now, subjects tonight are hell and nikola tesla
formallity: he invented the death ray
Basic Bubba: The old ones-- narrated by Nimoy?
Dr Headphones: this one isn't nimoy
formallity: forget i said that
Dr Headphones: ah, they have interview with near death experience guy who died, went to hell, and returned to talk about it :)
Dr Headphones: tesla did a lot that could be used for evil, some say that it's being done now.
Dr Headphones: he also beat edison in a fair fight but g. westinghouse ripped him off
formallity: Something about how half a giant Telsa coil could kill anyone in the world
klokwkdog: well, certainly electric motors are evil...
formallity: or something
cease: tes la cola tesla cola teslacola
klokwkdog: nothing magic about a Tesla coil, and yep, it can kill
formallity: Tesla the band is evil
cease: a machine's version of cocaine
Dr Headphones: well, actually half a giant fly swatter could kill anyone in the world, too :)
klokwkdog: ...but an axe might be cheaper and more effective
Basic Bubba: I'd pay to see that.
Dr Headphones: ask leon trotsky about axes
cease: how much do i hear?
formallity: Goodnight
klokwkdog: he had all kinds of ideas like a bladeless turbine and sending power through the ground, but they didn't work out very well
cease: i like hess'es discription of an intellectual: someone with no ax to grind
Dr Headphones: later, form, come back again, interesting conversation tonight!
klokwkdog: nite form
cease: good one, form
formallity: sorry to bring up nam but Ive seen too many news stories about how there definitely not going to bring back the draft
Dr Headphones: dont' believe the government
cease: almost drafted me.
formallity: so I've been obsessing about it
klokwkdog: probably not unless there's another terrorist attack
cease: they'll draft your ass, if you let them
Dr Headphones: cat lives in canada, maybe a decision some will have to make
cease: klok, you mean "when"
klokwkdog: ..they still have the boy scouts and the campfire girls after all the reserves are engaged...
Dr Headphones: at times i almost wish i had done that
cease: the door is open, kend. for now, anyway
cease: i hear the new draft wil demand canada give back its draft dodgers and our govt ok'd
Dr Headphones: they won't take me again. i WILL test nutzo on any test they care to give me!
Dexter ''Fiddler'' Fong: So are we
Dextre Fong: We're back
klokwkdog: yellow
cease: if bush wins, i see the downward trajectory of your country as the expansion of a black hole, that will take everything down
Dr Headphones: a giant sucking sound
cease: hey, backboys
Dextre Fong: Im gonna re-up and frag the Governement
klokwkdog: Cat - if the republicans maintain control of Congress, I see them winning no matter who's president
Basic Bubba: That giant sucking sound is Dubya's Brain.
Dr Headphones: i awoke from sleep the other night with a novel idea the other night. well, idea for novel. might try my hand at some writing here in the next few months. political/secret rulers of the world/assassinations, etc.
Basic Bubba: Its a black hole from which no thought escapes.
cease: i see your point, klok, as they control the court and the media, who are owned by the same people
klokwkdog: but some of the Supreme Court are close to becoming wraiths, so they need to be able to resign under a rational leader who'll appoint real experts, not agendas
cease: but clinton was at least able to forestall doom, to some extant. bush brings it on
Dr Headphones: kerry told him to "bring it on" today :)
Dextre Fong: Vote Mug-Wump
klokwkdog: oh, we have a number of dooms possible. civil war in china worries me
cease: good for him. a week too late, but good
Dr Headphones: cat: did you get the thing i sent about leguin?
cease: where is carville when they need him?
cease: exquistie, kend.
cease: one of my heroes
Dextre Fong: Behind the curtain Cat
klokwkdog: i regret he used Bush's phrase - he should've coined his own
Dr Headphones: yep, knew you'd like that one :)
Dr Headphones: imitation is not always flattery
Basic Bubba: Carville, and chewy nougat center....
cease: nah, dex. the clinton war room would have jumped on that swift boat shit. this took 2 fucking weeks? lots of lost votes there
Dextre Fong: Kerry shoulda said; "I'll hit you so hard muthafucker, Laura will die"
Dr Headphones: he's one ugly SOB but i like listening to him talk
klokwkdog: agreed, Ken, but he should've done Bush one better
cease: good point, klok
cease: he's ugly only if you wanna fuck him
Dextre Fong: Hopefully it's all rope-adope
Dr Headphones: i was sorry to see laura stooping to campaigning. you'd think a former librarian would be smarter than marrying him
Dextre Fong: She wants silence in the whole country Ken
cease: shtooping> aint that her job? like shopping> shlepping?
klokwkdog: I've been reading TPM and this discrepancy bit (like on the Iran nukes quote) is soooo flagrant and the news media is just too lazy or too bought off to care. They ought to put some peoples' pants on fire!
Dextre Fong: She schtoops, George Schlepps, Karl Rove schtups
Dr Headphones: klok: i've been reading that pretty regularly since you turned me on to it
klokwkdog: i think it's like waking up one day and realizing you've married a bank robber, ken
cease: kend, she was smart. she married into the saudi embassy's main family. her great grand daughters will own banks in switzerland. how can she lose?
Basic Bubba: The News... in Yiddish.
Dextre Fong: Oi!
