Il Duce Buffo e stupido: Eeerie: They're talking about freedom
Merlyn: could be dex
Merlyn: I think if they are all non-English, they can do that; KFAI has a lot of non-English shows, but is mostly English, so I wondered if the non-E shows can do legal IDs in another language

cease: you have that skit, merl?
cease: from bergman's brief radio show?
cease: proc wrote that, as i recall
Merlyn: you mentioned it to me once, cat, and I made a radionow ad for it
klokwk-ICICLE!: actors love Shakespeare since they all get great parts and wonderful lines

Dexter Fong: =)Cat; not a MOMA Fan....they're greedy mfers and prefer the Met
||||||||| 10:31 PM: llanwydd jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past hour!"
cease: my main reason to visit nyc is to see the rose planetarium and its attendent natural history museum.
Dexter Fong: Hiya llan
cease: hi llan
klokwk-ICICLE!: speaking of acters...
llanwydd: any mail for me while I was gone?
||||||||| Catherwood leads Bunnyboy inside, makes a note of the time (10:31 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Bunnyboy: lo dere
Dexter Fong: How was the performance? Dress?
cease: i saw some great paintings at the getty when i was there recently
Dexter Fong: Hey Bunny
cease: hey bunny!
cease: you finally hopped in to join us
Bunnyboy: oops! Sorry to interrupt the bridge game.
llanwydd: hi bunny

cease: isnt that bridge built yet?

llanwydd: Actually, Dex, "Richard" opens tomorrow night
cease: i want to get there earlier but that's up to doc and lili
Dexter Fong: Bunny: After much discussion, it's been determined that the Candide which I saw (not once but twice) was on Broadway, prolly 97 or 98 with Audra Mcdonald and whatsher name from SCTV, Edith Prickley
llanwydd: Is doc driving out there or flying, cat?
cease: doc and lili will fly to vancouver and we'll drive down to seattle the day of the show
klokwk-ICICLE!: the day they drove Seattle down?
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 10:35 PM, dragging Elayne by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this bozo?"
Dexter Fong: It's Late elayne!
klokwk-ICICLE!: evenin' E!
llanwydd: back in the 70s I made plans to cross the continent to see FST but it didn't pan out
Bunnyboy: Andrea Martin, as the Old Woman, yes. And that would have been about the right time, 97ish. I know, 'cause I was doing a production of CANDIDE around the same time, and was surprised that they were letting college and semi-pro folks do it, at the same time it was on Broadway.
Elayne: Gah, last time I let Robin talk me into watching Return of the King, Extended-Until-Death Edition...
llanwydd: hi Elayne
Elayne: Evenin' all *yawn*...
Bunnyboy: El: Haw!
klokwk-ICICLE!: does one watch it twice?
cease: hey el!
Dexter Fong: Bun: Glad we settled that =)
Bunnyboy: The theatrical version was 8 days long!
Elayne: Klok, I think he's planning on doing a marathon of all 3. With all the added bits that's like, what, 20 hours or something?...
Elayne: Nah Bunnyboy, just felt like it...
klokwk-ICICLE!: sheesh, Elayne
Bunnyboy: Yes, I've had the pleasure of playing Voltaire\Pangloss in 2 different productions, in 1990 and 1997.
Elayne: On the other hand, he found the "Easter Egg" on that DVD set so that was fun.
llanwydd: I've been waiting for a public library near me to get a copy of "Return of the King" on videocassette but those are hard to come by these days. I don't have a DVD player
cease: el, i got you info about spamalot after i read the logs a couple days later
Elayne: Unfortunately I can't stop yawning. Gad, that sucker's languid at the end...
Dexter Fong: Bun: Very cool
Elayne: Cat, do you know exactly when you'll be in NY then?
cease: i didnt really think ticfkets would be available. i'm more than content just meeting you and robin and dex and maybe doc and lili
cease: the first week in may i'll be in both nyc and dc.
Elayne: I don't think we'll be able to score tickets for less than like $250 each, and I don't have that kind of dough.
cease: i can get a roundtrip to either city for accumlated air miles.
Bunnyboy: cat: Here's a possible lunch place, pre-Mayflower...
cease: what i would like to do is fly to one city and fly out the other but maynot be possible with free air faire
Bunnyboy: http://www.mcmenamins.com/index.php?loc=50
cease: not worth it, el
llanwydd: $250? What show is this?
Elayne: First week in May, perfect timing, my boss will be gone back to Malta by then (if I'm still working at the same job, that is)...
cease: thanks, bunny
Elayne: I lined up a couple of interviews but we'll see how they go...
cease: i'm going to a semi=broadway play here in van next month, the marijuanalogues, featuring homey tommy chong
Bunnyboy: The Six Arms. It's run by the same outfit that runs McMenamin's, the pub we all met at pre-show in 1999. However, it's closer to the heart of Downtown.
cease: apparently there's a bus from dc to nyc and back for $20 or so each way.
Bunnyboy: El: And how many endings can there be?
Elayne: Be right back...
cease: best of luck with that boss problem, el
Bunnyboy: My friend Alan and I were busting, counting all the "Ambiguously Homoerotic Hobbit Moments" in ROTK.
cease: i'll try and have exact dates for you and dex by feb after i talk to doc and lili, who are coming to visit next week
llanwydd: I'll be going to NYC in March for a theatrical audition
cease: good luck, llan
Dexter Fong: Well, I just live here....
Bunnyboy: llanwydd: General audition, or a specific production?
cease: i'm sure you'll know of a splendid place for us to eat, dex
llanwydd: thanks, cat
Bunnyboy: If you call that living...I KEED, I KEED!
Dexter Fong: Cat: Great place...only serve rice pudding....but like thirty versions of it...and the decor?
cease: rice paper?
Dexter Fong: A+
llanwydd: Bunny, it's Lake George Dinner Theatre's summer season. A long run of a comedy called "A Bench in the Sun".
Bunnyboy: Very Condi.
cease: i'm looking forward to eating something italian. my only memory of eating in nyc the last time i was there, in 64, was the ravioli at mama leone's
klokwk-ICICLE!: it's a dirty job, Dex, but somebody's got to do it
Bunnyboy: Oh, rite. Happy Inhogurination Day!
cease: if its that memorable, i gotta make my meals in nyc this time last another 40 years
Dexter Fong: Uh Cat: Mamma Leone's had about the worst food in NYC
cease: compared to my mother's cooking, dex?
Bunnyboy: /me turns over the "Moo SFX Foley Can".
cease: that's why i need you and the riggs to take me to a Good place, dex
Bunnyboy: oops. that's COLON, Powell!
Dexter Fong: Cat: What restaurant your mother work at?
Bunnyboy does that SFX thang.
llanwydd: My favorite meals in NYC come out of a steel cart
cease: if "my mother" and "food" are in the same sentence, there's something wrong with that sentence
klokwk-ICICLE!: steel this cart?
Dexter Fong: New Powell Cologne by Maison Bush
klokwk-ICICLE!: Pepe Le Peu!
cease: i watched a lot of those mario batalli or whatever is name is, show called mario eats italy. also read the new yhorker piece on him
cease: are any of his restaurants worth visiting?
Dexter Fong: Can't do that Klok; they got these little devices that lock up a wheel when you got to far from parking lot
Elayne: Cat, we'll make sure and hit Little Italy in Manhattan. It's right next to Chinatown so that's two ethnicities with one visit, as it were...
llanwydd: Then again I have eaten in the most famous places in NYC including the "gyros/souvlaki takeout across the street from Port Authority
cease: this is the best part of a bad album
Elayne: And I'm sure Doc will line up some sushi place near him and we'll drive on up...
Bunnyboy: brb. Switching out doggy treats...
cease: thanks el. for someone who has a tiny appetite, i am inordinatlely interested in food
Bunnyboy channels P & B's DOGGIES ad.
Dexter Fong: uh oh
Elayne: I've never been to a restaurant run by a big-name chef, but I'd say those are probably more famous for the "name" than for the food.
Dexter Fong: whew
Elayne: Although I do like Batali, his look reminds me of a lot of fanboys I know.
llanwydd: When I saw FST at Town Hall in NYC I went to a fancy Indian place very nearby
cease: the comic book guy on the simpsons?
Elayne: If we're doing Indian we have to go to Sixth Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues in the East Village. That's "Tandoori Row."
llanwydd: my favorite food by far is curry
Elayne: And all around that area of the East Village is one of the best little Japan-towns in NYC...
Elayne: Koreatown is up a ways, in the 20s right above Chelsea.
cease: they'll have yuzu for sure
Dexter Fong: Elayne: Highly recommend Haveli on corner of 6th st and 2nd ave, bit more expensive but several notches above anything on 6th street
Elayne: I'm not really enamored of Korean food, a lot of it is way too spicy and most of it is very expensive. Too much money to spend on an iffy proposition.
klokwk-ICICLE!: maybe you can get Chinese spaghetti, Cat
Elayne: Dex, I'll defer to the guy who lives in the neighborhood!
Elayne: Cat, it's Haveli with me and Robin and Dex and his beautiful bride, whattaya say? :)
Dexter Fong: Klok: Chinese invent spaghetti call it noodle
llanwydd: I don't know how anybody can afford to live in NYC. The rents are so expensive. Yet so many people do
Dexter Fong: llan: Rent control
Elayne: We technically live in NYC, but we're right on the Westchester border.
cease: anyplace with y'all in it will be a delight
Elayne: Llan, you have to remember that wages are slightly higher here as well, partially because of the high rents.
Dexter Fong: reckon so neighbor
||||||||| 10:53 PM: Charles Throat jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past hour!"

Bunnyboy: cat: Thass cool.

cease: hey ah clem, play some recent stuff
Charles Throat: I don't think I want to know what they were soliciting

Elayne: Oops, I've just been informed it's time to watch The Daily Show. Sorry I could stay long this week, folks, I'll try to do better next time!
||||||||| At 11:00 PM, Elayne runs out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."

Charles Throat: Draw the curtains, Catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
cease: ah clem?
Dexter Fong: If you can draw these curtains, Catherwood, you may have a career as a commercial artist
klokwk-ICICLE!: funny how Catherwood can stamp 11PM long before he announces the hour...
cease: oh, i love this album
Bunnyboy: Gosh, it's actually down to 50 degrees here in Seattle...
