||||||||| A time machine materializes at 9:30 PM and Elayne steps out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.

Dexter Fong: Hey Elayne
cease: hi el!
Comrade Mister Yamamoto: E!
Elayne: I'll be in New York, pretty much. :) Evenin' all!
Merlyn: Boris, have you been here before?
cease: i was listening to the surrealist, a firesign friendly show on the npr station at santa cruz.
cease: the dj, john james, said he was going to the san jose show and promoted it on this show
Dexter Fong: E: I'd not call the area where you now reside New York exactly...more like south Westchester
Boris: I halve
cease: well el, hell of a show. that should come as no surprise
Elayne: Too true, Unca Dex.
Elayne: Glad to hear it, Cat.
Merlyn: two seattle reviews of the show both panned it, though, but the audience sure liked it
Boris: Best Regards!
Elayne: Oh, I'm sorry to hear the reviews weren't good. What problems did they have with it? Too far over their heads?
cease: reviews in seatle papers, merl?
Merlyn: yes, google news searches should find them
Boris: Sings Viva Las Vegas!
Dexter Fong: Merl: Proving, as always, that people who aren't into FST just don't get it
cease: Judith suggested that this would be their last tour, although i've heard that before
cease: very true, dex
Elayne: I'm frankly surprised they're still touring at all.
cease: i've been promoting tomorrow's webcast with my doper friends
Elayne: I just promoted the webcast on my blog.
Dexter Fong: Well done Cat and E
Merlyn: FT wants to see what happens in LA, too
cease: i dont know if the new stuff is exactly the best introduction to firesign
Dexter Fong: What's the new stuff Cat?
cease: i would expect they'd get a good review in the LA Weekly, if not the Times
Elayne: Permalink: http://elayneriggs.blogspot.com/2005/02/firesigniana-one-of-great-things-about.html
Merlyn: I'd say 90%+ of the audience were very familiar with FT
cease: excellent, el
Elayne: Well Brian, that should come as no surprise, that's pretty much par for the course with their live stuff. If you haven't heard of them, or aren't familiar with their stuff, you're usually bound to get lost...
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Bambi into the room, accepts a grimy quarter as a gratuity, mumbles something about 9:35 PM, then departs.

Elayne: Hi Bambi! Hooray, it's a two-gal chat again!
cease: hi bambi
cease: the tour is actually new stuff

kwd!: bambi is doing foley?
Bambi: Yes, I think I might have LOL
Elayne: Cat, tell me someone is taping the show(s)...
cease: you type and talk at the same time, bambi?

Elayne: He mentioned my name, I'm beaming! :)
||||||||| Catherwood escorts WCGuy in through the front door at 9:37 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
Dexter Fong: You must be a beamer, then Elayne
cease: is that mr rice?
Dexter Fong: Hey JR
Merlyn: Friday vs. Saturday in Portland had about 30% of the show change, so I don't know what I'll see in LA

Merlyn: I'd think so

Dexter Fong: Wow! That's complex...I stick to a Texas Two step
kwd!: "wobbly red", I love it
doctec: i haven't sent anyone anything yet
kwd!: you should have been in the 12-tone program I was in before this, Dex
Boris: The Squirrel burried him
Dexter Fong sings "you-ooh-ooh-ohh send me
Dexter Fong: Klok: Beware of those serial killer musicians
kwd!: they made me get into that after I got the 12-bar blues...
Dexter Fong: 12 Bars...man that's a drunkards heaven
kwd!: something some israeli guy was giving away...
Boris: and the 3 foreskins
Bambi: dangerous smoke-easy ... that's a funny correlation ... especially since they have effectively made smoking the first substance that is effectively banned but still legal.
Dexter Fong pokes Yam who's turning gray
cease: i was gonna take doc and lili to a smoke easy while they're in van
kwd!: didja see they put human stem cells into mice and they got smarter? Oryx and Crake may come to pass after all

doctec: cool - cat lili and i will be out for dinner that evening but we should be around for some of the chat tomorrow
Boris: didn't go there....
Dexter Fong: Maybe Jim C *was* a wobbley red
doctec: and i'll be 'taping' the show off of the buffett site as well
WCGuy: Ossman (and Judith) have developed a great relationship with M-ville. Let's see what we can do to keep it going.
Merlyn: WC, should I send out a post-show mailinglist asking people to do that?
Elayne: I loved the "he sets her up, she knocks him down" line. Giant Rat is so underrated...

Dexter Fong: Doc: Ladder for that man
Dexter Fong: E: There's a connection there...and I use the term in all it's meanings

Bambi: Have you all read the article on my newsletter site that I put up there last year?
Bambi: http://jim-fran.com/fcsnl/index.php?module=pagemaster&PAGE_user_op=view_page&PAGE_id=59

Bubba's Brain: Merl -- didn't go into work today because of cold. Not sure if I'll get in tomorrow. If I do, I'll put up link.
LiliMarlene: Guys, can't you capture it to a stream?
Bunnyboy: I neglected to mention...I love Richard Paul's contributions to HOW TIME FLYS.
Merlyn: ah, no remote access, eh?
LiliMarlene: I guess I shouldn't say that. I'm used to all the magic that doc performs.
kwd!: if it's MP3, use Winamp 5 with Streamripper plug-in
Bambi: backing up a client computer, then installing XP, then bringing all their stuff back to the computer with the updated OS tomorrow......
Bunnyboy: I'll see your 4, and raise you 2 aunts.

||||||||| Warp - dead from dengue fever
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Dexter Fong: Bunny: Ants? YOu're having a picnic?
Bubba's Brain: Nope.... when I started the biz, all my computers went to office. I'm chatting on my dad's dell -- not set up with what I need.
LiliMarlene: We're having a quandry here.
Bambi: Fire Ants?
cease: praw has left?
Dexter Fong: No Starch!
LiliMarlene: that's quandary
cease: the cord got uplugged, just ike in giant rat
kwd!: nah, the white Formosan ones from New Orleans...
Bunnyboy: Dex: Some Jambalya, I thinks.
doctec: 15 mins trying to get cat's pc audio working again and the problem turns out to be the speaker connection itself
cease: bunny, so we finally met bunnette
Bunnyboy: Yes, ain't she sweet?
doctec: yes, that was a treat
cease: we were honoured
cease: finally meeting this person you are always running off to take food to
Bunnyboy: doc, I gotta say, you are one go-getter. You literally opened doors on this tour.

Elayne: LOL! My favorite How Time Flys line... "Circus? You should have seen the circus..."

kwd!: which has so many levels it may as well be Torrone
Bunnyboy: doc: You got that "East Coast English". I've got that "West Coast Wellllllmaybeee.."
Bunnyboy: That, combined with my Scandinavian heritage...
Dexter Fong: English? Another werewolf?
doctec: thx bb - i try to cut to the chase in situations like last sunday

LiliMarlene: that's quickly
Bunnyboy: Dex: What do you have in your ears?
Dexter Fong: Bun: Nothing Lili hasn'g told me
Bambi: Dex, you play for peanuts like Dumbo? (from Who Framed Roger Rabbit)
doctec: bb: well needless to say it was a joy for me to hook up with y'all in seattle - a fine time was had by all to be sure
Bubba's Brain: Ain't you heard you can get Hearing AIDS thatway?
Dexter Fong: Bambi: Texas "No Peanut Limit" Hold-em

Bambi: lol
Elayne: Oh dear, I'm starting to fade. Sorry about that...
LiliMarlene: Elayne: For the first time, Doc and I are in real West Coast time.
Bambi: fading is such a lonely thing lol
LiliMarlene: It makes a huge difference.
kwd!: that's good: most of the West Coast (from this vantage point on the other edge) seems to be on either unreal or imaginary time...
Bambi: are you all out on the West Coast at the moment?
Elayne: How many days did it take you to adjust, Lili? I always have more trouble going west to east than the opposite...
kwd!: the announcer lacks specific gravity
LiliMarlene: It's all in your imagination, kwd.
Elayne: Ooh, chat during the broadcast tomorrow? Where, here?
kwd!: I know Lili; that's what they're trying to get out
Bambi: klok...only at times ;-)
kwd!: I just can't put up with taking all those drugs
Bambi: seems we all lack specific gravity at times huh? lol
doctec: e: yes here
doctec: definitively

Bunnyboy: Webcast and Chat? Ooh, I cannot bear it!
LiliMarlene: Elayne: My whole fucking message just gone blown away. I hate that!
Elayne: Oh excellent, I'll see you all then (if I can stay awake)...
kwd!: it all bears on the same thing, Bun
Elayne: 'S okay, Lili, I think I'll be moseying off to watch The Daily Show now.
cease: taking requests? how about bride of firesign
Merlyn: ok E
doctec: my lack of specific gravity is directly proportional to my excess of specific comedy
kwd!: nite E

Elayne: Night, all!
Bambi: you leaving for now E?
||||||||| Elayne rushes off, saying "10:57 PM? Mark Time is almost on! Where's a radio?"
doctec: hee

LiliMarlene: But, theoretically, it should take one day per time zone and I think that applied here.
kwd!: well, the unspecific comedy can be more lasting
Dexter Fong: Night E

LiliMarlene: Doc and cease just went upstairs for beverages.
kwd!: it finally got WARM enough that I could start drinking beer again...
LiliMarlene: Would that be a bloody screw?

Bubba's Brain: or a screwy Mary.
Dexter Fong: Milk of Magnesia= A Phillips Screwdriver
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
