||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, January 06, 2005 - 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?"
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Dexter Fong', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:17 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Merlyn', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:20 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...

Merlyn: (scroll up) that's when & where I found out.
Merlyn: they paid $10,000 to buy nickdanger.com from a Firesign fan last month, but they're stonewalling Firesign in licensing.

Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: But many voters, already struggling with the labyrinthine politics of the West Bank and Gaza, say they have never heard of the actor who swept Debra Winger off her feet as a dashing Navy officer in the 1982 film ``An Officer and a Gentleman'' and were even less interested when they were told he's an American.
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin:
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: ``I don't even know who the candidates are other than Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas), let alone this Gere,'' Gaza soap factory worker Manar an-Najar told Reuters Wednesday.

Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: our 1-hit wonder for the night, Bub?
llanwydd: there was a one-hit wonder
Bubba's Brain: That, or Terry Jacks.
||||||||| Around 9:51 PM, shoes for the dead walks off into the sunset...
C.S.S. Tweeny: Must be gettin' early. Kloks are runnin' late...
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: it wasn't even the song, it was the video (which didn't make much sense; not that any of them do)

C.S.S. Tweeny: Anybody heard of Ar Angel Cannata - Tamorok. I'm pretty impresses. As good as Yes or Asia.
Dexter Fong wonders if others have found the idea of Ked ROck playing at one of the inaugural soirees to be just the right touch of lunacy, befitting these hideous times

C.S.S. Tweeny: 1st transistor radio. I want to hold your hand. That old.
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: we're going to run out of people to torture prisoners
Dexter Fong: It's a wonder the Army doesn't say "OK, we've had enough....get outta washington George"
shoes for the dead: anyways, Neal Cassady is at http://www.key-z.com
C.S.S. Tweeny: We're going to run out of prisoners to torture The People.

C.S.S. Tweeny: Union couldn't mix my salad - Wakeman
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: i listen to the stuff on Nocturna and Chocolate City and don't understand atoll

Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: on Nocturna, somebody had sampled Tangerine Dream...i felt ancient...
Dexter Fong: I saw "Legend" in my own mind
llanwydd: TD did some of the music in that film
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: if one really obsesses over the price of a Mac, one might should be using a PC. Mac people don't think of money in the way normal humans do...
Dexter Fong: Tommy Dorsey?
C.S.S. Tweeny: And now, a word for Michael Dell, who may some day build a machine that conforms to the Austin Consortium platform. RISC that can run your favorite OS.
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: TD's Optical Race is nice
llanwydd: no, tangerine dream
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Alberto ''Torture'' Gonzales', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 10:24 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...

Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: yes, deliberately avoided it, Ilan
Alberto ''Torture'' Gonzales: Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition
cease: isnt starring tom cruise a contradiction
C.S.S. Tweeny: The one I was referring to was Poco. Walt Kelly wouldn't let them call their band Pogo.

Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: that or redundant, Cat
Dexter Fong: I loved Poco

cease: so thats why im not stoned
Dexter Fong: Except for "Po" grams
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: he was OK in Minority (another PKD story trashed by big-named stars), but liked Vanilla Sky better (almost despite Cruise; thought Diaz stole all the scenes she was in)
llanwydd: what about holygrams?
Alberto ''Torture'' Gonzales: Well yr Canadian aka a Sodomite
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: slap that Yankee in irons!
Alberto ''Torture'' Gonzales: So it don't apply

Lord Klokwerk Snowedin was in applicable once
cease: wish i could use the question mark
Alberto ''Torture'' Gonzales: I've got EVERYBODY's record
Dexter Fong: Applicable...a town suitable for anyone
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Bubba's Brain', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 10:29 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Bubba's Brain: Hey all, again
Alberto ''Torture'' Gonzales: Dex: Not
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: well, Cat, you get Penelope either way (haven't seen the A-- flik); production values much better in Crowe's film

Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: I enjoyed both Vanilla Sky and Almost Famous because I saw them in the sequence they were made and ran 'em with the director's commentary on (didn't hurt to have Nancy Wilson doing background guitar)
Bubba's Brain: Nope, cat, decided to carry only CD's, and "tales" is only on cassette...

||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Mi Hamster Esta Yamamoto', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 10:33 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...

llanwydd: that's metaphysically absurd
Bunnyboy: cease: Would like to. It is a school nite, and I'll have Bunnette in tow. But the early curtain is a plus, in that regard.
C.S.S. Tweeny: Rib Shack. Errant missle from a helicopter.

Dexter Fong: I'll throw in an ear and a tailbone
BIG Square Bob's pongepants: duck and cover...
Bunnyboy: As re: that particular Irish pub - It's next to the Center, and about 18 to 22 blocks from the venue. Might wanna find someplace closer to the Pike Place Market, since that is only 2 blocks away.
doctec: it is better to point the cursor than curse the pointer
C.S.S. Tweeny: Cover your duck.
C.S.S. Tweeny: Back an a minute...
doctec: quaaaaaack
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: what, stand around and have people throw fish at you?

doctec: who knew they had canoes in baseball parks - the things you miss...

Dexter Fong: Go to press Mr. Birdseed
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: they're really down on their luck vampires...
doctec: one of my fave "fargo" lines ... "honey... prowler needs a jump."
cease: i wonder if ossman or austin have any ideas re pubs. they know seattle and they like to drink
Dexter Fong: Press your birdseed strongly into the duck, cover it with buttered bread and embroil it for 3 hours
llanwydd: that was an offbeat film wasn't it
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: or just put it out and flash-irradiate it for a few seconds, Dex
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: not for the Cohen brothers; it was kinda tame
Dexter Fong: Slow cooking is the key here, Klok
doctec: if we can find a pub with a pool table ... even a coin op table ... that would be exceptionally kewel!
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: no, no, no; you never cook the weed!
cease: slow cooking key lime sounds like a good way to preparee mahi mahi
Bunnyboy: doc: Yeah, I think there's a rack or two in Belltown. I'll try to do some actual footwork around The Moore, and see what shakes on a Sunday.
doctec: yes yes!
cease: i do all the time klok

Merlyn: and cleaning my oven

doctec: her last name is burrell
Merlyn: I promised a college radio show I'd get a Firesign ID for them
doctec: she also had a regular stint on a sitcom a few years later - will check for that on imdb
Bunnyboy: Yeah, doc, it was the Shocked show, at the Croc.
llanwydd: kaufman never broke character
Dexter Fong: Security is that tight at FS shows?
Bunnyboy: Burrell
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: like Peter Sellers; kwd could never figure out when Kaufman was "real"; it was all illusion...
Merlyn: theatres generally don't let people film the show, even the performers
cease: aha
cease: guess ill leave the Big Camera in van
Bunnyboy: Union rules, and all that, blah blah.
Merlyn: different union rates & stuff
cease: makes sense
Merlyn: yep
Bunnyboy: A tech assistant is a stage worker, but if you film them...well, that's bread.
Dexter Fong: Butter 'em up I say
cease: are you brining your dat,doc
doctec: ca: no, bring with - might be worth making some 'home movies' of the partying afterward
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: if that don't work, char 'em stiff
cease: didnt we record the seattle shows with ours in 99
cease: ok doc
Dexter Fong: Good Lord, A stiff Char is the worst thing

Dexter Fong wonders how a radio station could play Will Eisener
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: nope, Shaw, Dex
doctec: one of my fondest memories is of looking through the underground comics racks in the mid-70s and stumbling on a compilation of four or five 'spirit' stories in one issue - i read that thing over and over - remarkable stuff!
Bunnyboy: Finally got my first taste of Wayne and Shuster last nite. Them guys was good!
Dexter Fong: Though there was a band called Spirit with Randy California

Dexter Fong: but they spelled it comics then

Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: now, we've been through that once before, Ilan. One - hit wonders, remember?

doctec: it's a prevasive condition of western society
Dexter Fong: Yeah..that's adolescent
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: ...and then some of us are just uncomfortable in our own skin...
Dexter Fong: Shed those skins and get into some threads from Nick Danger Wear

BIG Square Bob's pongepants: ....nobody likes us, we doh noh whyyyyy....let's drop the big one....
doctec: you know you're getting old when you find yourself using cultural references over 20 yrs old in casual conversations
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: oh, so much of that in FST, too, DT

Dexter Fong: Doc: Shoulda used "Iodine" instead...or mercurochrome

Dexter Fong Bactine! Bactine! What makes your big head so hard?"
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: but what we little remember is that we were funny like that to our elders, too
doctec: klok: yes, it helps people younger than me realize how much *older* i am than they are
cease: austin has a wonderful story about that, yesterdays news
Dexter Fong: Klok: Absolutely! That's what makes it so entertaining
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: how many times they made the equivalent of passing the palm of their hand 'way over their head?

Dexter Fong: For how many are you speaking Klok?

Dexter Fong also is entertained by the frequent occurance of a kind of W S Burroughs quality
cease: im driving a rentaal chevy now. piece of shit
Dexter Fong in the chat that is
doctec: my boy, if it's drugs you want...
cease: see the usa thru your turret bay
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: but really, would any of us appreciate the incorporation of "Ring Around the Collar" into a period piece?
cease: firesign tune from Life in the Day
Dexter Fong thinks Ring around would be a great opener for the musical version of the Prisoner of Zenda
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: the voices are very, very good. the female characters are a bit raggedy, but that's quite a stretch
doctec: how'd you get stuck with a chevy cat?
cease: i went online looking for baargains fromla airport. avis was cheap. now i know why
doctec: are they still using the 'we try harder' thing?
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin is still wrestling with the meta-story of Giant Rat, one of performers, performances and in/out of character, so in that album instance, the distaff characters make more sense
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: maybe rent-a-wreck?
cease: we should rent something better for the seaattle trip, doc
cease: meta story, klok
doctec: speaking od cultural refs - if anyone here is a fan of the old mahavishnu orchestra stuff, i recently recreated an old synth piece i did in college using the modern music tools at my disposal... if anyone wants to hear it i can mp3 it and give you a link to it
doctec: cat: yes, let's definitely rent something halfway decent - there will be at least 3 of us in the car, possibly more while we're there - right?
llanwydd: I'd love to hear it
llanwydd: I liked "Inner Mounting Flame"
doctec: ok llan, hang on while i prep it for uploading
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: yes, ezzactly, Dex (he said, catching up), but done as "Prisoner of Zenda" staged at Beyruth...maybe even work in Bergman's Death from Seventh Seal...I can see it now...
||||||||| It's 12:10 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Bubba's Brain - dead from dengue fever
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
doctec: if you liked inner mounting flame, you'll like my piece
cease: indeed doc
cease: comfort uber alless
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'StephenFullerTweeny', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 12:11 AM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Dexter Fong: Klok: Love the Beyrut tie ine, Ring Cycle...set in New Zealand, maybe a Lemony Snikett cross reference
cease: had to take my parents around inthe chevy today. serious bummer

Dexter Fong: or do you take your wife to lunch?
Merlyn: Not planning on it cat, but I might go in on yours
StephenFullerTweeny: Just back from the old same place.
Dexter Fong: Still the same, Tween?
Merlyn: I'm flying into Portland, hitching a ride with proctor to seattle, and have a 1 AM flight out sunday night/monday morning
StephenFullerTweeny: Steely Dan? I'll have you know that I've been to the Mustang Ranch, NV.
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: he's hitching his wagon to...a Star!
Merlyn: but I still have a connecting flight, because it was cheaper to book it that way
cease: we can take you around, as doc is plotting. maybe othhers as well if we have to go someplace faar from thhe theatre
StephenFullerTweeny: Her name was Sissy.
cease: 1 am. wow
Merlyn: I won't even have a hotel room in seattle
cease: proc and melinda are driving up the coast
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: then, you'll be like a wraith...
Dexter Fong: Look kid: you're going out there tonight a wagon, and you're gonsna comer back a star!
doctec: merl: no hotel room? maybe you can bunk w/cat
Merlyn: proc said it would be a rental, so maybe they're flying up and driving to seattle
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: perhaps they have a secret meeting with the Aliens in central OR...
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: or maybe even Bend...
cease: be careful of those presents from tom bombadil, then. unless youre in the flick
doctec: tweeny: i'm impressed!
Dexter Fong: Look! Let's just everybody meet under The Needle
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: that's right, Cat: you could end up on the cutting room floor
cease: whats thaat bride doing here
Dexter Fong: Hi! This is Ben Dover somewhere in central OR
StephenFullerTweeny: But then, I've also been to Elko.
llanwydd: don't tell me you're going all the way out there, dex
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin finally noticed that Joe Beets was doing the WX21 remote broadcast in Giant Rat... :-(
StephenFullerTweeny: Two flying saucers have just landed on my plate...
Dexter Fong: llan: By Conastoge wagon and the grace of the good Lord, Sir Snowedin
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin told Dex to take the CN from Toronto, but nobody ever listens to him
doctec: ok, the tune is called 'thirteen' and the url for it is http://www.doctechnical.com/myx/audio/Thirteen_New_02.mp3
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: sheesh; keep the revenues in the Empire; what's left of it, dash it all...
Dexter Fong: Joe Beets used to be on KYW Westinghouse when they broadcast from Pedricktown, New Jersey
doctec: the upload is not complete yet, so wait a sec
cease: ok guys i cant chat and use phone at the same time so ill unplug computer and chat wwith yall next week.
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: fair dinkum, Dex? Cool fact; thanks
cease: in more appropriate chemistry
Dexter Fong: Travel safe, Cat
StephenFullerTweeny: Which way is Goshen?
doctec: it's kinda big - 14mb - i can maybe step the encoding quality down a bit if you want to download something smaller
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: nite cat; get that fone card; grate to have u hear
cease: bye
||||||||| Around 12:20 AM, cease walks off into the sunset...
StephenFullerTweeny: And yet we de cist.
doctec: nite cat
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: what? I thought Cat was in LA...
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: he's in Hollywood??
Dexter Fong: LA, land of sunset location shots
StephenFullerTweeny: Skating away...
Dexter Fong: Yeller Jeller shots
llanwydd: ºª©ð®þ¥
doctec: smaller file uploading now: http://www.doctechnical.com/myx/audio/Thirteen_New_02b.mp3 - wait for it...
Dexter Fong: and antique tintype mug shots
doctec: ok, done - 5.6 mb, much more reasonable
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: and, under soon-to-be president Schwartzenegger, land of co-generation takeover shots...
StephenFullerTweeny: Brodband. Viking women.
Dexter Fong: Klok: What's a co-generation shot?
doctec: is that like a co-dependent shot?
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: co-generation is when you make hay while making steam for somebody
doctec: whiskey, rye, ... ?
StephenFullerTweeny: I'll be backside boomer!
StephenFullerTweeny: I'll have another cup of rye,
Dexter Fong: Klok: Kinda like raising *Mutant Blues*?
doctec: ride of the valkyrie or ride of your life - you be the judge
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: like a condo tower putting in a gas turbine to run a generator and using the exhaust for heat & hot water and putting the A/C compressor on the shaft for cooling
StephenFullerTweeny: Kyrie Elleison
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: you know, those big muthas out in the Meadowlands, like mutant lily pads gone vertical?
Dexter Fong: Domine Domine Tween
StephenFullerTweeny: Out here by the walls...
doctec: in excelsis daaaaaaayyy-oh ... daaaayaaaayooohoooh.....\
Dexter Fong: I'll have to look for them, Klok...next time I drive past there
Dexter Fong: That's the place with the giant frogs?
StephenFullerTweeny: SNL - consume massive quantitites
Dexter Fong: French, I mean
doctec: drop yer log on the giant frog?
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin is having visions of Ted Turner at the helm of a catamaran sailing oil tanker, growling into the radio, "This is Captain James T. Steubing of the motor sailer Heldscalla..."
StephenFullerTweeny: We're fromme france
Dexter Fong: DT: And he'll be meaner that a junkyard dog
Merlyn: "be seeing you", to quote #6 on your hit parade - byeeee
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: nite M
||||||||| Around 12:27 AM, Merlyn walks off into the sunset...
doctec: nite merl (six of one, ... )
StephenFullerTweeny: Take your right hand and make action
doctec: i am not a number ... i am a free man!
Dexter Fong: Klok: Nice treatment, can you give us an outline for a pilot
doctec: HAAAHAAHAAHAAHAAHAAHAAAAAA......
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: nah, Dex, it's just on the 'pike there's all this masonry rising up out of the swamp: condos, Holiday Inns; it's weird. I just think of all those people up there, hundreds of those things, stuck in a swamp
StephenFullerTweeny: Didin't I see you at Jim high school?
BIG Square Bob's pongepants: ....gonna go fall right over, happy 2K5, good ameeegoes....!!
Dexter Fong: Well we here at Meadow Lands Estate have been swamped with calls, but rather than bog you down, let me give you to Mr. Moor
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: brings to mind the opener of the old Naked City series (NYC is so far off I don't really get a good eyeful of that stuff, so muse on the "suburban" things)
Dexter Fong: Night Bigster
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: I don't know Dex; I'm thinking modified donkeys as part of the crew, though
Dexter Fong: You mean Burros?
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: yep
StephenFullerTweeny: You can leave check out any time you like, but you can never leif...
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: meat-eating versions
||||||||| Around 12:31 AM, BIG Square Bob's pongepants walks off into the sunset...
Dexter Fong: Naked City shot in the burros, I love it
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: Kurdish battle donkeys
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: leased from the PKK
StephenFullerTweeny: Biggies? Try Dollywood...
Dexter Fong: Ericson has liefed the building
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: $1750/week each, so the human crew is a bit jealous
StephenFullerTweeny: Leif The Lucky
Dexter Fong: Those Battle donkeys could save your life, Private!!
StephenFullerTweeny: I don't know what in New Foundland chased off Vikings. I'm not sure I want to know :)
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: no, actually, they are gun platforms in the military version, designed for serious terrain like E. Turkey, W. Iran, etc.
Dexter Fong: Tween: As I understand it, NF colony was both to small to survive well, and a long series of bad winters and short summers
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: In NF, they had serious competition from the natives and never had a large enough population to overcome that. "Quantity has a quality all its own"...
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: and in truth, the donkeys are not designed to save lives; they're designed to survive, so they can run on battle casualties...from either side.
StephenFullerTweeny: Well, my shorts would be with the guys that crossed the Atlantic in a Viking longboat.
Dexter Fong: Tween: But where would your ass be =))
StephenFullerTweeny: Jeeese...
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: were your shorts with the Finns against the criminally incompetent Russian Army?
Dexter Fong: Sell the criminally incompetent Russian Army short, Wlater
StephenFullerTweeny: Drinking with Maddy Prior and not "the troubles".
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: same thing happened in Roanoke in 1587
Dexter Fong: Indeed Klok
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: the Finns lost, Dex.
Dexter Fong: Drat!
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: we are superior to buffalo in every way, but with 500 coming your way, a machine gun isn't much help
Dexter Fong: "Quantity thingie again?
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: well, I think that was what the Vikings were faced with
Dexter Fong: Yes..very much so, there was a contributing factor, long term change in the weather IIRC
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: I doubt it was out and out warfare; it was just that they couldn't take over and there was direct and aggressive competition for the resources they needed; technology couldn't help the small population
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: not sure where that fit in the timeline; le whatever aux meadows died out pretty early
Dexter Fong: Also Vikings stubbornly refused to adopt some needful native ways, like changing diet
StephenFullerTweeny: Rocket Cottage - excellect record
StephenFullerTweeny: Saw them at Lisner Auditorium '73
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: they also cut down every scrap of timber in Iceland, which made it hard to keep up trade when Denmark and Norway were having other things to occupy them
Dexter Fong remembers their first record "Red Glare"
StephenFullerTweeny: Can you freakin' imagine what can chases off Vikings? Last of the what?
Dexter Fong: Klok: Did you happen to see the PBS 2 hour special on the Mars Landers/Rovers?
Dexter Fong: Got your email
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: yes indeed; anyone who didn't can go to CSPAN.org and find the video for the next 13 days or so
StephenFullerTweeny: Did you happen to see Karen Allen and Jeff Bridges? Starman
Dexter Fong: Tween: Green Bay will chase off Vikings =)
Dexter Fong: Tween: Yes...liked it a lot, as i remember...long time
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: yeah, I like that; "Yellow, go very, very fast..."
StephenFullerTweeny: Blue Belt will chase off Ko. Yeah, right...
StephenFullerTweeny: Iike Yun Sam Ko. Columbus, IN. Taught me a few licks on the TKS musical instrument.
Dexter Fong: Now that I think about it..Star Man and Brother from another Planet, huh=)
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: but I think kind, gentle, "helpful" aliens will be traumatic in other ways and will help in the "You can't always get what you want..." sense
StephenFullerTweeny: He also teaches Karate. With a bit of a smirk.
StephenFullerTweeny: TKD Grand Ref.
Dexter Fong: Klok: Europeans|Native Americans = Kend gentle aliens|earthlings
Dexter Fong: Kind not Kend but subsonsciously =))
StephenFullerTweeny: You come here...
Dexter Fong: Now c ome over here!
Dexter Fong: Ha Ha Ha
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: well, we went through several flavors of "kind/gentle/aliens" in that case, beginning with Columbus bringing back a few specimens which a local priest bought as slaves...
StephenFullerTweeny: Laughter is the best medecine.
Dexter Fong: Klok: My point exactly
Dexter Fong: Mendocino is the best laughter
Dexter Fong: But Rincon rules, dude
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: it's just that any kind of contact can be destructive, no matter how benign. but that case was never ever couched as "helping", from the very beginning
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: Batavia's Graveyard and the story of the Exeter sinking really disturbed me. These really had nothing to do with "natives" per se
||||||||| It's 12:50 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| llanwydd - dead from the common cold
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Dexter Fong: Klok: Like in many modern SciFi stories, aliens are smart and stay well away, but staying watchful
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: it's just that people 400 years ago had totally different worldviews and consideration of human life
Dexter Fong: Unfamiliar with either story
Dexter Fong: Night (belatedly) llan
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: sailing with the Dutch East India Company in 1629 was not the Love Boat, and the Captain was not Steubing!
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: gruesome. search wreck Batavia australia dutch east india company and read about it
Dexter Fong: Klok: I'd extend your statement to any kind of contact between a highly technical society and one less so, will be destructive
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: the book is even worse. but the real horror was that if the ship really did make it to Indonesia...
Dexter Fong: *be*
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: there was a good chance you could die on the way. a really good chance. and if you got there, you could die quick, too.
Dexter Fong: Being unfamiliar with the story, your allusions are lost on me
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: there was precious little human compassion: that ship was a cargo vessel. if the cargo fell off, they'd try to save it. if some idiot fell off, well...there's always more to be had...
Dexter Fong: Somewhere, a Cargo Vessel is missing it's idiot
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: they shipwreck on a reef off australia and the first thing the captain has the survivors do is to try and save as much of the company's cargo as they can
StephenFullerTweeny: The Indians don't want British Gurkas to help them... Gosh darn, why?
Dexter Fong: British Burkhas, Brilliant!!
StephenFullerTweeny: That would be Indian Marines of the British Empire. Can't imaging why..
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: of course, the advanced/primitive contact is always destructive, but it helps if it's not set up to also be explotative
StephenFullerTweeny: Love the one you're with, Steven Stillborns always sez..
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: i read that some primitive tribes on islands off Indonesia are OK and they don't want aid workers going in there with all kinda gadgets and disrupting them
Dexter Fong: Mountain men, no doubt
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: gwen stefani?
Dexter Fong: Gwine stefan wid my baby
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: anyway, my point is that 400 years ago, the European "colonizers" treated their own people pretty darn rough
doctec: guys, i'm fading fast - have to get some sleep and hope my cyatic nerve eases up on me some tomorrow
Dexter Fong: 400 years ago, we, in general, lacked a great deal of knowledge and other things
doctec: you all take care, see ya next week with any luck
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: it's got some nerve, huh? ;-)
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: sorry
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: g'nite
doctec: (who you callin' a dummy?)
Dexter Fong: Doc: Feel better, I've had luck with a magnet for that thing
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: nite->lili, too
doctec: nytol (zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz..................
doctec: (thanx for the tip dex)
Dexter Fong: what an exit!
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: yeah, I think i'm outtahere too
Dexter Fong: what an encore!~!
doctec: (will relay msg klok)
||||||||| Around 1:00 AM, doctec walks off into the sunset...
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: you'll make him into a magnetik personality yet, Dex
Dexter Fong: Me 2 guz, night Klok and Tweeny
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 1 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: zip, beep and all that folks
Dexter Fong: that's all folks
Lord Klokwerk Snowedin: the hell it is, Catherwood!
||||||||| Around 1:01 AM, Lord Klokwerk Snowedin walks off into the sunset...
StephenFullerTweeny: May whatever Grid you belive in, may Grid have mercy on the peoples of South Asia.
||||||||| Around 1:02 AM, StephenFullerTweeny walks off into the sunset...
||||||||| It's 1:10 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Dexter Fong - dead from pneumonia
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood enters, and announces to all and sundry "It's 4:32 AM, time to change the log file and clean out unused rooms; please exit the chat room for a minute or two. Thank you for your patience."
