Merlyn: did you listen to Firesign on radiomargaritaville?

||||||||| Woody 1 runs out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's Woody 1?! It's 9:03 PM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
Bambi: we listened to FST on RadioMargaritaville ... sounded great
Left Rev. Tweenhunger: Did the guys make any dineros?
Left Rev. Tweenhunger: That would, of course, be the point.
Merlyn: I dunno, I would think so, most theaters did pretty well for attendance
||||||||| Woody 1 sneaks in around 9:05 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last week's "unpleasant incident."

||||||||| Around 9:22 PM, Left Rev. Tweenhunger walks off into the sunset...
Dexter Fong: Cat: How about 2 Equals
Dexter Fong realizes that may have sounded saccharine
Bambi: is Dr. Headphones back on the road now?
Dexter Fong: There is no substitute for sugar except Sugarsubstitute
cease: i'll be in nyc from thursday night, hopefully chatting from elayne's, until i take train back to dc on monday.
cease: i wouldnt know what equal was if doc hadnt been here recently
Bubba's Brain: So.... if Lodestone had eyeball hats, would anyone be interested?
cease: its ersatz brothers. the REal one
Dexter Fong: Cat: Great...that means Elayne will be on later than 10 oclock
cease: yes bub. Fumiyo wants one.
Dexter Fong: Doc...the great equalizer
cease: if her hubby lets me use his mac. maybe not so late
Bambi: don't use sugar substitutes...they bother my stomach
Bambi: real thing or nuttin' honey lol
Dexter Fong: Bambi: Put it in your coffee not on your stomach
Bambi: lol that must have been my problem Dex ;-)
Dexter Fong sprinkles sugarsubstitute on groinal area....nothing happens...Curses! fooled again
Bubba's Brain: Thanks, cat.... I'm looking into offering them... but its far from certain.
Dexter Fong discovers that fly is jammed by tiny sugarsubstitute particle
Dexter Fong pours hot coffe in/on lap....dissovles in tears
stephnfosterBlizzard II: interrupted for the last 12 min by KEN, who's trapped in upstate NY about 15 miles from Quebec border in Thousand Islands
Bambi: lol
Dexter Fong: Wow! A bulletin
Bambi would've suggested water myself ;-)
Dexter Fong wonders if Ken doesn't check the weather
stephnfosterBlizzard II: 10 below last night
Bambi: oh, no! Not again!
Rank Xerox Yamamoto: I'm watching the snow
stephnfosterBlizzard II: he's stuck in a parking lot all night
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Elayne', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:29 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Elayne: Evenin' all!
Bambi: no wonder our friend's son hates NY!
Dexter Fong: Eek!
Bubba's Brain: Number three with a bulletin.
Bambi: hi Elayne!
cease: hey el!
Bubba's Brain: Hey E!
Dexter Fong: Bambi: Your friends son is a longhaul truckdriver?
Bambi: Dex: Yep
Bambi: owns his own rig...almost ;-)
Elayne: Hey, cool, Red Shift is on! Did I miss us?
Bambi: him and the bank
cease: yes el, but you're unforgettable
Dexter Fong: Sharecropper Truckdrivers.....Picking and delibering de cotton
Elayne: Heh, thanks Cat... oh well...
cease: it gets Really Tedious around now
stephnfosterBlizzard II: Ken has "no specific message" but says to say hi to all; vy frustrated he's missing Red Shift... "I don't think I brought that one with me, either."
Elayne: Rob and I were getting caught up, more or less, in Lawrence of Arabia. I'd never actually sat through any of it before, so it was kinda cool.
Bambi good one Cat! very true!
Rank Xerox Yamamoto: Hello Jimmy LEEE!
cease: the play, actually all of them, only work when there are a lot of changes, sounds. just my voice and mao gets relaly boring relaly quickly, at least to me
stephnfosterBlizzard II: E - notice Guiness as Hussein and Sharif as Faisel
Elayne: Oh yeah, SFB, Robin was also telling me who some of the other actors were.
Elayne: Like Anthony Quale. Whoever he was...
Dexter Fong thinks Guiness is too stout to play Hussein
cease: thanks, ah clem
Elayne: It's weird though, a young Guinness looks nothing like Ewan MacGregor...
stephnfosterBlizzard II: during the post-WWI treaty talks in Paris, Lawrence and Faisel used to go flying over Paris
Bambi: yes, great movie Elayne! Love that one
cease: bambi, seemreal isnt selling red shift. i had it up for free for a year or so. lodestone could use it on its list so lodestone will be the source
stephnfosterBlizzard II: they were screwing Faisel's father, Hussein, out of Palestine, Syria and Lebanon
Elayne: Robin said Lawrence was killed when his motorbike slammed into a tree. Guess he should have stuck with camels.
Dexter Fong: Klok: Did they get the bird'seye lowdon?
Elayne: Friggin' LONG though, Fran. I don't do well with languid movies.
stephnfosterBlizzard II: Lawrence was regretting to Faisel, when they were up there once, that they "didn't have any bombs on board"
Rank Xerox Yamamoto: I'm not here
ah,clem: hi Yammy
Bambi: yes, it is a long one ... intricate too
Dexter Fong: Hoi Hoi Yam
Rank Xerox Yamamoto: hahahahahahaha
Elayne: Hey Jim, how many minutes are you behind in the CNI audio?
Elayne: Hi, by the way. :)
Rank Xerox Yamamoto: I'm obliged to be obnoxious
Bambi: yeah, guess he should've stuck to camels ... but they stink, spit and walk uneven ;-)
Dexter Fong: Much obliged
cease: cease comes from my abreviated name c.simril. when you say c.simril outloud, the first sound is "cease" a riff on the way that the firesign use cut-offs
Dexter Fong: or desist
Bambi: it's about a 2 to 2 1/2 min delay
Elayne: Oh crap, I don't like Roller Maidens all that much. Turning off the audio. Don't be offended, Jim.
ah,clem: ok cat
stephnfosterBlizzard II: hope you get better Jim; take care of him, Bambi!
ah,clem: but it does seem real
Elayne: Jim's ill? Ugh, sorry to hear it...
Dexter Fong: Yeah Bambi; take him for a ride, see.....show him the sewers, see
ah,clem: almost better now E
Bambi: I always do Klok :-)
Dexter Fong: Almost better is good enough for us, Clem
Bambi: he's been battling the flu or something very much like the flu
cease: recover quickly, ah
Elayne: Hang on, I'm going to go check the snow levels... brb...
ah,clem: tks
stephnfosterBlizzard II: Dex - not "take care of him" in the Rustler's Rhapsody sense...
Dexter Fong: Elayne has her own personal weather station
Bambi: he's been there (sewers) in Massillon OH when he was a kid ;-)
cease: snowing in nyc?
cease: maybe i should bring a coat in may
Dexter Fong: Klok: I *know* that title Rusler's but cant bring up any data...would you be sop kind
stephnfosterBlizzard II: in coastal RI, it's only about an inch, but that was in an hour. it's coming down at about a 45º angle
Bambi: the good guys only shoot you in the hand
ah,clem: studio levels ok, ?
Dexter Fong: Klok: Right on!!
Bambi: brrrrrrrrrr Klok!
stephnfosterBlizzard II: you can't open another window or tab, Dex? It's the most ROFL spoof of every western ever made (a different one than Blazing Saddles, though)
stephnfosterBlizzard II: level 5 by 9, Clem
ah,clem: right sfk, I do not need to be taken care of that way.. LOL
Dexter Fong decides to check snow levels in own personal weather station...also time for a refill
stephnfosterBlizzard II: you bet, Bambi -- 22ºF and falling fast, too
Elayne: Yeah, it's still coming down. Plus they're talking another round tomorrow morning, and another Monday/Tuesday.
Elayne: Won't be putting on my car magnet till all of it's over.
stephnfosterBlizzard II: ours goes 6PM->4AM and then continues on "in lesser form" until noon or so
Bambi: yuk! I've had enough winter all ready ... we got sleet last this morning.
Elayne: It's a really cool magnet too: http://www.gearthatgives.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/CTDStore.woa/wa/product?siteID=220&itemID=26092&origin=11320
Dexter Fong: Weather people in nyc said 3 to 5 inches....I think over/under number is probably 6 1/2
Elayne: We've only had a few bad snow days, so it hasn't been that bad a winter here. But I'm not going to kill myself tomorrow to get into the office.
Elayne: Our landlord doesn't come 'round to shovel till the afternoon, so if I can't get down the steps and into my car and out the long driveway I'm not going to bother.
Dexter Fong: E: good idea...kill your boss =)
Elayne: He's in Boston, Dex, through Saturday morning, so he missed the worst of it.
Elayne: He and his wife took off for Tahiti the day before the big blizzard last month. He's really lucked out.
Dexter Fong: E; Boston is gonna get it too..just a little later than us
Dexter Fong: Right Klok?
cease: can you drive to work, el?
stephnfosterBlizzard II: upper bound on Cape Cod is over a foot, E
Elayne: True Dex, but he'll already have arrived and it should be fairly easy to get around by afternoon when he's giving his Harvard lecture.
Rank Xerox Yamamoto: It's not bad here yet
Elayne: I've heard that, SFB! I can't believe the Cape is being so hard hit, that's very unusual.
Rank Xerox Yamamoto: The street is still clear
Elayne: Cat, that's what I'll have to figure out tomorrow. :)
Boney: Pointers to FST comments about HST, please. Not necessarily recent. Thanx.
Bubba's Brain: Gotta go. I may be back later.
Dexter Fong: Yam: But the future is cloudy
stephnfosterBlizzard II: N. RI is slated for 2-4", but that really depends on how the storm tracks -- Boston may get pasted again; whatever, Sat. may not be late enough to get the roads clean; if they're using train, I guess OK
ah,clem: need another request
||||||||| Around 9:46 PM, Bubba's Brain walks off into the sunset...
Elayne: Geez Boney, I can't remember any specific ones...
Boney: Thaynx? Elayne?
ah,clem: bam pls relay
Elayne: Nope, SFB, boss & wife drove up and will drive back sometime Saturday...
stephnfosterBlizzard II: center violence of storm was supposed to go offshore and diagonal, E...but you can pray for some modulation, I guess ;-))
Dexter Fong: Elayne: Maybe not ==))
Elayne: They have to, Dex, they have opera tickets for Saturday night.
Boney: If you think of anything, post it to your blog.
Bambi: will do Clem
Dexter Fong: Boney: By recent. I assume you mean *not* the Fighting Clowns piece
Elayne: Will do, Boney.
stephnfosterBlizzard II: well, they'll probably take the Turnpike and then 384 down to I-95 at Niantic, so they won't really hit the predicted results until then
Elayne: BRB.
ah,clem: more modulation sfk? i'm pegging the meter....
Bambi: what recent one would you like Boney?
Boney: FST referred to HST in Fighting Clowns, Dexter Fong?
stephnfosterBlizzard II: i can see god, clem
cease: really, boney?
Boney: Gimme two.
Dexter Fong: ABoney: yeah...the piece with the presidents bit: HST, RMN, LBJ, FDR
cease: the albums i dont listen to, i don't know well at all.
cease: why is that not strange?
stephnfosterBlizzard II is reminded that a whole generation now has no earthly idea what "pegging the meter" means...
cease: you put pegs in meters in ri?
Dexter Fong: Klok: Enough with the potty mouth talk, we all know what it means
Boney: is BRB a president?
Bambi: lol
Rank Xerox Yamamoto: Lovely peggy, meter maid
Dexter Fong: Yes Boney, President *pro tem*

Charles Throat: Phil utterly pointless trivia question, ignore if you want...
Dexter Fong: an' I listened
Johnny ''Detuned'' Piano: Geez, the legendary FST isn't legendary enough for Aspen
Dexter Fong: Aspen: The City where legends die
Charles Throat: Is the toy robot in Martisn Space Party the one Proctor gave you in the radio show right after the earthquake?
stephnfosterBlizzard II: and Giant Rat, Bambi -- don't forget Giant Rat
Rotonoto: er- in this era of 'right shift'?
Johnny ''Detuned'' Piano: Good point, Dex
cease: as sam's wedding, ossman told me that the pbs thing would make or break the firesigns. it didnt make you and you're still not broken
Bambi: yes, and of course Gian Rat :-)
Dexter Fong: Charles: What great timing =)))))))
Rotonoto: but right shift leads inevitably to cariage return...
stephnfosterBlizzard II: nice piece in NYT this week about Aspen now full of people who don't "get" Hunter T.
Charles Throat: No kidding, insert hero worship here
Dave: yeah fucking 5 hrs from me, a hell of a bus trip and scary car ride
cease: he got 40% of the aspen vote. says something good about the place
Bambi: playing FST during the Thursday night chat is great fun
Phil Austin: I don't think they want legendary per se. they want high profile legendary,
Johnny ''Detuned'' Piano: Point taken, Phil
Charles Throat: But you're pretty tall
cease: to sell to the advertisers of course, phil
stephnfosterBlizzard II: something they can market six different ways while paying the artist only for four...
Phil Austin: bambi: roller maidens, eh? thanks
Dexter Fong: Welcome to the Recently dead Great Artists concert
cease: so they can afford to pay oona to make their food look edible
Dave: yeah, something that people will get on the first listen
Johnny ''Detuned'' Piano: Well, no one wants to think about their entertainment, do they?
Dave: or that's visually humorous, which of course is the worst kind of comedy
Charles Throat: Oona looks fantastic in EYKIW
Bambi: our pleasure Phil :-)
ah,clem: thanks for listening, everyone, and tune in next week
Dexter Fong: Feel better Ah
stephnfosterBlizzard II: some of the edgy parts before 10PM, though ;-)) Just a few minutes though...(not that it matters, but Clem sounds like he wants to do the Rules ;-)
Phil Austin: oooooona is this week doing food for the latest series of Subway ads starring the immortal Jared. Talk about high profile ...
Bambi: now you need to do the spyware cartel wars album
Dexter Fong: Ajred and Ooona starring in an underground movie
Boney: I'm sorry. I misread the fortune cookie. It says "There is plenty of free parking in THE rear." I don't still don't get it.

Johnny ''Detuned'' Piano: Okay, everybody - free parking at Boney's rear!
Phil Austin: dave exhibits an understandable prejudice against the visual. My feelings as well, by the way. I keep trying to convince fst that they're up there to be listened to and they don't need funny hats and wigs, but I lose everytime. Of course, I'm not talki
stephnfosterBlizzard II almost missed Subway tonight, but managed to motor through the snow for a footlong

Johnny ''Detuned'' Piano: See ya, Dave
cease: w few wigs and tunes couljd have helped.
Charles Throat: Got my Big Book of Plays right here
Bambi: ah, Nicky ... my favorite 3rd Eye :-)
Boney: How can my rear be parked in front of something?
Dexter Fong: Dave: watch out for The Christian Right
Charles Throat: Marijuana logs? Where?
Dave: well Phil it's cause you did the radio gig, and that should be used in live performances because if people dig the visual too much they don't get anything out of it
cease: one sound effect, a phone in the age of cell tunes, and a tune somewhere in a long show of basciallyjust htem reading
Rotonoto: nite Dave- keep and reuse the little umbrella- we'll give you a discount on your next drink
Johnny ''Detuned'' Piano: It comes in logs in this country

Phil Austin: cat: Peter Jason, an actor friend of mine (currently in Deadwood) and he said he heard from tommy recently (actually it was the gorgeous chong daughter, I forget her name, to get ready
Charles Throat: I had to come back when those red letters appeared
Charles Throat: Rae Dawn
stephnfosterBlizzard II: (of course, my favorite Wierdly Cool visual effect was that poor woman doing the pledge drive on WLIW, who started with a "deer in the headlights" look on her face and I swear it got more intense as the time went by)
cease: rae dawn?
Johnny ''Detuned'' Piano: Rae Dawn?
Bambi: but there's nothing like being able to imagine who everything looks and feels ... like old time radio ... it has a charm that can't be taken away and can never be replaced
Phil Austin: to reprise his role as one of the two cops in Up In Smoke. Supposedly Richie Cheech has agreed ...
Bambi: MTV actually ruined many good songs imho
Boney: a thai stick? a greek urn?
Tazmutt: I guess I don't quite get it - help!

Bambi gets down from soapbox now ;-)
Charles Throat: I suppose I'll never get to see you guys... dammit
Boney: Mr Austin, the world wants to know your reaction to Dr Thompson's suicide. And I'm hoping this poop hasn't been scooped.
Dexter Fong: Charles: Pictures available in the lobby
Charles Throat: I'm drinking my reaction
ah,clem: clem aplauds Bambi
cease: its much easier to boil down the movie tommy chong to a stage presence than to expand the firesign aural experieince to anything as visually compelling.
Boney: that's new journalistic slang
Bambi: there goes, ah,clem shattering glass again lol
cease: perhaps not possible, but certainly worth trying
Charles Throat: Cold comfort, Dexter
Boney: or is that neo gonzoistic slang
Dave: ok now I've gotta go, been great guys, hope to catch you all next week for a little longer of a visit, I need more FST material, hmmm..will look in to it, chao ciao bye bye

Boney: Thursday Nite is a higher form of intoxication... it can't possibly be legal much longer

Boney: No, I don't want to see Jennings on Jon Stewart. I will not download the JPEG
stephnfosterBlizzard II: If your donkey is, say, interested in what's going on at a zoo, well, he/she is about as welcome as a Gentile inside a Mormon temple...
Boney: extraterrestrials are responsible for most Outlook Express viruses
stephnfosterBlizzard II: i think that letting donkeys, horses, etc. in would provide valuable role models that might bring some of the poor caged creatures to better themselves so that they, too, can finally live outside.
cease: i spent a lot of time in zoos in the 90s.
stephnfosterBlizzard II: therefore, Gates and Balmer are extraterrestrials...QED
stephnfosterBlizzard II has not willingly gone into zoos
stephnfosterBlizzard II: and probably will now refuse to unless he can bring his animal friends, too
Boney: no I will not download 'furry art' of Jennings on Jon Stewart as a couple of horny squirrels
Boney: I just erase that stuff without looking at it
stephnfosterBlizzard II: not only that, but there is the problem of Country Clubs, which I probably shouldn't get into in the chat. but one can see that there is yet another long Civil Rights struggle ahead of us...in zoos, on the golf course...
