||||||||| 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 September 23, 2004 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, September 23, 2004 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!" -- then he looks around at the empty room, looks at his watch, and mumbles "...am I early?"
||||||||| "9:01 PM? 9:01 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Merlyn should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Merlyn enters and sits on the couch.
||||||||| Catherwood leads Bubba's Brain inside, makes a note of the time (9:03 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Bubba's Brain: Greetings.
Merlyn: hey bb, how goes shirts? I still need to order the new P&B CD
Bubba's Brain: They go okay -- they've trailed off since the introduction.
||||||||| "9:06 PM? 9:06 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Dr. Headphones should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Dr. Headphones enters and sits on the couch.
Bubba's Brain: Hey, DrH.
Dr. Headphones: howdy, dear friends and invertebrate animals who might be listening
Merlyn: The FT mailing list is 998 people
Bubba's Brain: Wow, just short of a thou.
Dr. Headphones: merl: i'm probably on there already, but if not, is there a special prize for being number 1000?
Merlyn: Nah.
Merlyn: Do you get "Firesign Update: etc etc" in your email? That's what you get.
Dr. Headphones: looks like catherwood got his ducks, er, clocks, in a row now
Dr. Headphones: i think i do. i hear about t-shirts and stuff from someone
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 9:09 PM, dragging Bambi by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this bozo?"
Bubba's Brain: That would be it.
Dr. Headphones: hey bambi, you deer
Bubba's Brain: Hey, Bam.
Bambi: howdy! JimmyLee (a,clem) are on the road again
Dr. Headphones: sorry i missed you guys. to sing a little song made famous by cher, "if i could turn back time......" (i do NOT look as good as she does, however)

Bambi: ah, shucks Ken (kicks stone) ... hi Bubba, Merlin
Bubba's Brain: we have the capability to make her better, stronger, faster....
Bambi: how's it going?
Bambi: lol yes we have the technology
Dr. Headphones: how's "it" going? wanna be a little bit more specific? or should i just say "hunky dory" and let it go at that?
Bambi: just no one asks if they should lol
Bubba's Brain: its called silicon.
Dr. Headphones: bambi don't need no stinkin' silicone!
||||||||| "9:12 PM? 9:12 PM!!" says Catherwood, "cease should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as cease enters and sits on the couch.

Dr. Headphones: speaking of cats, i just watched a giant cat-hair float through the air and land in my coffee cup. back in a sec with a fresh cup
||||||||| Catherwood leads klokwkdoginox inside, makes a note of the time (9:13 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Bambi: well, re so sorry we missed linking up this year on our annual pilgrimage
||||||||| 9:14 PM: Elayne jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past hour!"
Dr. Headphones: hi klok, el
Bubba's Brain: E!

Elayne: Evenin' all!

Bambi: hi klok
Dr. Headphones: yes, your annual pilgrimage isn't as bad as some do. i saw people in mexico who walk miles on their knees to the shrine of the virgin of guadalupe

||||||||| Outside, the 9:15 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving llanwydd coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Bambi: ouch!
Dr. Headphones: how do, llan

cease: best i've read yet
llanwydd: still a lot of mysteries in the story. But then I have never known much about the central character
Dr. Headphones: "i'm being followed by a moonshadow, homeland security....."
cease: there are continents smaller than his ego
Elayne: Yeah Cat, it's more of the same about his "entrepreneurship," innit?
Elayne: It reminds me of that Geoge Lucas quote, that he's become the thing he always hated, just like Darth Vader. :)
cease: that's not as relavent as how he makes enemies needlessly, how his wholemovement is mostly about watchingf him, move
Elayne: Bambi, you're never in the dark if you're typing by the glow of the monitor...
llanwydd: One mystery in particular is haunting me. Where does "Amid" come from? What does it mean?
||||||||| "9:19 PM? 9:19 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Brisbane McDerrmont should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Brisbane McDerrmont enters and sits on the couch.

Bambi: hi Brisbane
Bubba's Brain: Cancel the moyle.
Elayne: BRB...
cease: there was another sneker company he was going to work with, but maybe they didnt revere him enough so he told them to fuck off. now they have their own no sweat sneaker out and he's still scuffling, cussing, fuming
Dr. Headphones: boil the moyle--you need sterile conditions
klokwkdoginox thinks Bambi forgot to bring her USB-powered LED gooseneck laptop lamp...

klokwkdoginox: he's on everybody's list now
Brisbane McDerrmont : He's so deported.
Dr. Headphones: klok: i've tried to understand cricket by reading the rules online, it's impossible for someone not a commonwealth member, i think
Elayne: I understand he's being followed by a goon shadow.
klokwkdoginox: he shouldn'ta said whatever it was he said whenever he said it and now he's gonna pay.
Bambi: beautiful weather here in Ohio...warped one should be enjoying the sky (with his telescope)

Elayne: Dr. H, is this the hurricane map that I blogged about today, with the Florida Republican stuff?
Bambi: don't forget clem Ken :)
Brisbane McDerrmont : On a train looking for Hitler.
llanwydd: It was what Cat said about Rushdie that started the problem. Now he'll have to stay in Canada
klokwkdoginox: that shrimp? i thought it was e. tu brutus
Elayne: It's just a joke, y'know, it's apparently from an editorial cartoon. But Snopes took it seriously and has already debunked it. :)
Dr. Headphones: e: might be, shows path of hurricane superimposed over the counties which voted for bush
||||||||| It's 9:30 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:

Bambi: Clem says he's looking forward to the sh*tstorm
Dr. Headphones: and i saw on news tonight, part of ivan is reforming in the gulf. the old "one-two" punch
klokwkdoginox: i think it was the suggestion that God might not be on their side that really got them worked up about it, not the map
Dr. Headphones: bris: i hadn't thought about that one :)
Brisbane McDerrmont : D - Deported, think about it.
llanwydd: got mail. brb
cease: yeah, it'll be me next.
Dr. Headphones: should be arriving soon in a mailbox near you

klokwkdoginox: right Cat, they will come up to Van and drag you across the border just to have the pleasure (and TV spectacle) of deporting you
Brisbane McDerrmont : You just got deported on your left
Brisbane McDerrmont : You just got deported on your right.
Brisbane McDerrmont : Hound dog, indeeeeeed.
Dr. Headphones: the entire left will be deported if asskkkroft has his way. we aren't human anyway, just pond scum according to one christian writer i saw online recently
llanwydd: thanks for the map kend
Brisbane McDerrmont : Our father, who art pond scum, hallowed it be they oxygen farts.
Dr. Headphones: sure thing, llan. remember what they teach you in statistics class though, casual is not causal ;)
llanwydd: strange how far away those lines are from Daytona Beach, and yet my parents lost their power twice
Dr. Headphones: i did not check the official weather sites to make sure he didn't fudge the lines on there, but it looks good anyway
Bubba's Brain: Our father, who swings in the forests....
Elayne: Well, they're already trying to legislate what can be taught in universities...
llanwydd: the last one knocked it out for days
Dr. Headphones: llan: hurricanes can be strong many miles from the exact center
Brisbane McDerrmont : That came much later.
Dr. Headphones: my parents just north of tampa lost for 3 days on last one which went through
Bubba's Brain: That's right, monkeys' arent fathers, they're uncles....
Dr. Headphones: house just passed ban on the supremes deleting "under god" from the pledge today
Brisbane McDerrmont : The K of C must be tickled red,white and blue.
Elayne: You know, if they actually acted like they obeyed a god, I could kind of excuse it, sort of... but they're some of the most ungodly folks around.
Bubba's Brain: Repeat after me --- "Separation of powers"
llanwydd: that sounds pretty stupid
klokwkdoginox: if bush is re-elected, they plan to introduce legislation to set "pi" to 3...
Dr. Headphones: e: they preach about RINOs (republicans in name only) but most are CINOs
Brisbane McDerrmont : Separation of State and Sanity.
Dr. Headphones: bub: the constitution says congress can regulate what courts can do. it's in there, i read it today
llanwydd: the supremes, kend. What did Dianah have to say about the pledge?
Bubba's Brain: There is no sanity clause.
Dr. Headphones: article 3, section 2: In all the other Cases before mentioned, the supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction, both as to Law and Fact, with such Exceptions, and under such Regulations as the Congress shall make.
Elayne: And now for something completely different: http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=817&ncid=757&e=10&u=/ap/20040917/ap_on_fe_st/dead_man_walking

Elayne: "Can you hear me now?" "But-- you're DEAD!"
klokwkdoginox: for now, Bubba -- they're working on putting a mini-cell in the plane itself, and routing it thru the air phone mech
Stu meet Yamamoto: "I'm Dead, but my pjhone's not"

Bubba's Brain: It was the best of phones, it was the worst of phones....
Brisbane McDerrmont : How he got in them, I'll never know.

klokwkdoginox: or if it's Siemens, the wurst of phones...
Stu meet Yamamoto: No, it now starts it was the worst of Times, it was the Wurst of times
cease: making phones out of worst was never a good idea
Elayne: Oh, by the way, greetings from Captain Equinox, who came out again yesterday (and looked fabulous).
Dr. Headphones: wurst? once those butchers get the knack of it, they will be better
klokwkdoginox: yeah, cat that's probably what Bush and the pentagon are looking into now
llanwydd: It is a far better thing that I do now than I've done all day
Bubba's Brain: Reminds me of the german farmer who traded a butter-making aparatus for a sausage.....
klokwkdoginox: ...since they're scraping the bottom of the barrel for troops as it is
Dr. Headphones: yeah, nat. guard 5k short for this year. hello, draft....
Brisbane McDerrmont : Sauce sage and time.

Bubba's Brain: come into progeny -- you sicko...
Dr. Headphones: well, they try postgeny
Stu meet Yamamoto: We need to get cracking on a new lot of fascist chickenhawks anyway

Brisbane McDerrmont : John Kay back in the Top 40,

Dr. Headphones: i seriously hope i'm too old at 52 to be drafted again. went through that crap once in my life, don't want to try again either
Dr. Headphones: klok: try singing the words to "amazing grace" to the tune of "gilligan's island". works perfectly!
Brisbane McDerrmont : What was your draft #, Doc?
klokwkdoginox: Page et al sued the artists and supposedly had every copy destroyed
Merlyn: I think you're safe, 'phones
Dr. Headphones: bris: i was number 52, they took through 100 that year

Brisbane McDerrmont : Down the river, quite a ways.
Bightrethighrehighre: valkommenn, Doc....

Brisbane McDerrmont : Hi ho, Doctec.
||||||||| 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 doctec disembarks at 11:55 PM.
doctec: hello...
doctec: i had to get out of the opera browser
Bightrethighrehighre: see ya a while ago, Doc, gawwwwwwwww....I took a shower....
Brisbane McDerrmont : Why you disin' barks, what them tree coatin's done did to you?

Bightrethighrehighre: ....gotta hop on the ol' hoss n' clippity-cloppity on outta here, kidz....'beeeder-sane....
doctec: night bright
cease: unfortuantely, doc. she depresse the shit out of me
Brisbane McDerrmont : Adios, pardner
doctec: cat: that's probably because she recently went thru a divorce - but the latest series has been very, uh, surreal
Brisbane McDerrmont : happy trails to you
Brisbane McDerrmont : until we meet again
cease: yes, that wojld do itl thankfully i know not of that
doctec: she's using the strip as therapy - getting very personal, but in such an abstract and multi-layered way reminiscent of firesign
doctec: it's pretty f*cking amazing
cease: quantifications of pain are finite. responses are not
cease: yes doc i can see your point
||||||||| 12:11 AM -- Bightrethighrehighre left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
Brisbane McDerrmont : Supplies are limited, throughout the universe.
Brisbane McDerrmont : Bye
doctec: the latest 'waylay' series started on something of a dark note back in may, but as it has progressed it's become very surreal and fascinating
doctec: she's really been breaking new ground creatively
doctec: nite bris
cease: i wold not have known that if not for your expication
Brisbane McDerrmont : Oh, I was sayin', not goin'.
||||||||| "12:12 AM? 12:12 AM!!" says Catherwood, "klokwkdoginox should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as klokwkdoginox enters and sits on the couch.
Brisbane McDerrmont : But thanks.
doctec: she's been getting some negative feedback from readers expecting more of the kind of thing she had been doing in her strip earlier in the year
klokwkdoginox: it seems pretty bleak to me
doctec: i sent her email letting her know i appreciate the direction her latest work is taking, she needed some positive feedback
klokwkdoginox: very personal
doctec: klok: it started out bleak, but the last few especially have taken on a very surreal, almost playful tone
cease: hi klioi
Brisbane McDerrmont : I'm just ridin' along, now.
cease: yeah, we spoke by email as well, earlier
cease: she is a treasure and must be assured that
klokwkdoginox: it seems so passive
doctec: passive!? in what way?
cease: when something bad happens, all you can be at that time is paasive, klok
klokwkdoginox: the character is repeatedly victimized no matter how she attempts to escape the situation
cease: you can not go back in time and prevent its occurence, as it were
doctec: no, the past cannot be changed - but the present can be confronted
klokwkdoginox: i understand that, but there is a kind of subtext that it's no use trying any more because it just ends up putting you in some other jail
doctec: and once confronted, the future becomes an open door the can be walked through
doctec: and once confronted, the future becomes an open door the can be walked through
doctec: leading to the unknown (as opposed to the 'what we think we know')
klokwkdoginox: i guess i don't get that; it just makes me feel unhappy to read it
doctec: there's a new indie flick out lili and i are planning on seeing this weekend - "what the !@#$% do we know"
klokwkdoginox: i mean it is an interesting landscape, but the vibes really get me down
doctec: klok: as i say, the tone of the last two or three strips have taken a very surreal and interesting direction - almost firesonian in its depth and interconnections
doctec: the story arc works on multiple levels at once - takes some work to grok them all
klokwkdoginox: i suppose
doctec: http://www.whatthebleep.com
cease: ok vs ko
doctec: spy vs spy
doctec: in the house of love
cease: to me, as a concernced canuck, things are looking bleak for kerry. what do you think?
doctec: kerry's down, but not out for the count - the debates are key
doctec: if kerry can't get across to the tv-viewing public that he's got what it takes, he's down for the count
cease: i'm scaed doc
Brisbane McDerrmont : I believe I saw a clip of that on CBS' Latet Show, when Killby was still on.
doctec: i like the way one commentator put it today:
cease: maybe not rational, but now it is tottaly fucked, and i fear it could only institutionalize
doctec: "i don't know if kerry has what it takes to be president. i also don't know if bush has what it takes to be president - even though he has been president the past four years."
Brisbane McDerrmont : Hitler Dee, Hitler Dum, it don't mean feces.
cease: good pointkm for those twho vointe dont think that much
doctec: bris: lili and i saw that show as well - how did you think kerry did with letterman? do you think he swayed any undecideds out there?
klokwkdoginox: i'd hope the voters think, "Bush is the guy who gave us what we have now -- how can anybody be worse??", but I'm not sure it'll happen that way.
||||||||| "12:24 AM? 12:24 AM!!" says Catherwood, "Woody One should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Woody One enters and sits on the couch.
||||||||| Woody One departs at 12:25 AM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
cease: w1 agen
doctec: woddy comes, then he goes
doctec: kinda like life itself
Brisbane McDerrmont : Doctec, I don't watch the Hitler Dee/Hitler Dum shows, I seldom watch one of their ads.
Brisbane McDerrmont : The Wood Man moves!
doctec: kerry's definitely got an uphill climb ahead of him - not to mention figuring out how to effectively counter the bushco media manipulation drive
doctec: he's stil grappling with that
Brisbane McDerrmont : Bush = Oylpyre † † Kerry = Bush Lite 57 varietes - one flavor, oily charm and chedder.
doctec: bushco (esp. rove & co.) seem to have the initiative in terms of defining the terms of the issues and attitudes
cease: i feel like faye wraye face to king kong
cease: which canuck songwrite4 wrote thst, eh?
Brisbane McDerrmont : That should be OILpyre.
doctec: bush can't put two sentences together to make a point. kerry takes four paragraphs to make a point.
klokwkdoginox: i liked the hersh thing in salon that said that the niger thing was a canard dreamed up by the intel community to make bush-co look like idiots and it blew up in their faces
cease: both problems, doc
doctec: bush is fine as long as he doesn't have to go off his script - otherwise he's like a deer caught in the headlights
klokwkdoginox: yeah, moore got that one good
cease: your country will suck mine into great harm, as it does to all others
Brisbane McDerrmont : dead head lights the crack pipe
doctec: kerry is still trying to shake all the oratorical habits he developed while in the senate - he may be able to sway a roomful of senators, appealing to the sensibilities of registered voters is another matter
cease: ants marchinfg is a grewt songf
Brisbane McDerrmont : Crap, Cease, it ain't the country, it's the DNA.
klokwkdoginox: forgot the source on the other one, but it's that Chalabi and INC were agents of the Iranians who wanted to get rid of Saddam and who are now laffing their heads off at US
cease: there are no generalites, bris
doctec: al generalities are false - in general
klokwkdoginox: i don't think it's done by speeches any more; it's done by contacts by staffers
cease: good pointk doc
Brisbane McDerrmont : There is DNA eatin' DNA, and that's about all.
doctec: ya gotta have the pithy soundbite that cuts to the core, that makes you look good and your opponent look bad
klokwkdoginox: every terrorist on the planet is packing his bags for Iraq
Brisbane McDerrmont : It's funny, plants are not vegitarians.
doctec: bush hammers away at kerry's "waffling" ... while he paints himself as decisive and sure of himself
klokwkdoginox: "there's millions of them on all three sides of us..." -- are the Guys writing for Bush or something?
Brisbane McDerrmont : i before e
doctec: kerry has at least been fighting back of late - but it may be too little too late, the window of opportunity is closing rapidly
cease: just playihg with icy and putting on get rythyj, grear johhn cash saong
Brisbane McDerrmont : McVeigh was they, they are McVeigh.
cease: by ry cooder now
klokwkdoginox: ieeee! so what is the Bush story today? Are we going to invade Fallujah or withdraw from it?
cease: if we only rever jonny cash for writring this song, we owe h im enoughe
doctec: klok: whatever he decides, you can bet it will be decisive - regardless of whether the outcome will be what is intended or not
Brisbane McDerrmont : The empire can be MUCH larger, for sure.
klokwkdoginox: yeah, i liked that -- "Knowing what I do today, I'd still do everything the same..."
Brisbane McDerrmont : You can Tibet on that.
doctec: klok: same old same old...
klokwkdoginox: what was it Richard Clarke said? "Lemmings..."
doctec: klok: yeah, that works
Brisbane McDerrmont : I wouldn' t go back on a bet, anyhow, anyway.
doctec: "sheep" is another one...
klokwkdoginox: BTW, the host on "Weaponry" this week reminded us that Clarke's book is now out in paperback with additional material from 9/11 commission
cease: i was just dancing to get rytheyjm with icy
cease: was fun
klokwkdoginox: say hi to icy for me, Cat
doctec: cat: i bet!
Brisbane McDerrmont : Bye cease
