A Firesign Chat


||||||||| Catherwood re-enters the Waiting Room and explains "This is the main discussion room which is logged each night."
||||||||| Catherwood announces, "The time is 4:33 AM - I now declare Thursday's chat log for August 26, 2004 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "8:24 AM and late as usual, it's Turd Bird, just back from Billville."

||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "7:49 PM and late as usual, it's Merlyn, just back from Billville."
Merlyn: Hey folks, you're early, most people won't be showing up for about an hour and a half...
||||||||| Merlyn leaves at 7:50 PM, singing "Oh, I'm just a little fishy, floating in the sea, and there ain't no hook that's smart enough to catch the likes of me..."
||||||||| It's 8:00 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:

Bubba's Brain: Welcome, Mr Beet.
llanwydd: hello Beef. or is it beet?
Bunnyboy: ANIJAM was an collaborative animation short, in the style of the old "Exquisite Corpse"-style surrealist parlor games. Marv Newland of BAMBI MEETS GODZILLA fame comissioned a couple of dozen animators from several different countries, and had each animator run up about a 30 second scene, improv style. The animators only had the last frame of the sequence preceding their scene to go on. Wacky short.
