A Firesign Chat


Special appearance by
Phil Austin

||||||||| 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 March 10, 2005 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood enters with ah,clem close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 8:56 PM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the Aviary.
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'klokwkdog', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:00 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, March 10, 2005 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
klokwkdog finally arrives on-time...
klokwkdog: no mormons, no pilgrims; looking great...
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Merlyn', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:02 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
klokwkdog: enough of this pop, clem, play bride of firesign or something!
Merlyn: play some snap or crackle
Merlyn: I think clem may not be actively in the chat at the moment
klokwkdog: nah, I can hear that on Spirit of KJAZ...
klokwkdog: yeah, he's got bandwidth hassles
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Bambi', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:06 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Merlyn: has to pick between talking and listening
klokwkdog: bambi speeks for him, though
Bambi: I made it! Just locked my wig!
klokwkdog: no whigs or tories in this chat, please
Bambi: LOL
Bambi: you should be hearing something other than Batdorf and Rodney any minute now :-)
klokwkdog looks up Ken DeBusk's cellphone # and begins the laborious dialing sequence for rnktel's talk 3000...
klokwkdog: it
klokwkdog: it's just a bit treacly, fran
Bambi: think you'll enjoy it lol
Bambi: treacly?
klokwkdog: treacle
Bambi: hi to Ken! from us!
Bambi: you'll have to forgive ah,clem for the Batdorf and Rodney...it's his warm up music :-)
klokwkdog: recorded a message; Ken's not there.
||||||||| 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 willem van chillum disembarks at 9:13 PM.
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with Firesign Theatre"'
willem van chillum: evenin folks
klokwkdog: for the record, Ken mentioned a couple of weeks ago that he'd put in for leave and the rough target he got back was 11-12 Mar.
Bambi: hi willem
klokwkdog: hey, vil
klokwkdog: as he may get sent early, he might be close to a computer for tonight
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'cease', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:14 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Bambi: ok, thanks Klok... will keep that in mind ... maybe we can call his cell over the weekend
ah,clem: hi all, your request running now Klok

willem van chillum: Hey, cat

klokwkdog quaffs another sip of mich lite...
ah,clem: could see but not type, as I had scripts disabled
klokwkdog: thanks, clem!
ah,clem: np, Klok
klokwkdog: that's right, clem, you have to have some lines in this chat...
Merlyn: that's metaphysically absurd, clem
ah,clem: need another request for later, though
klokwkdog: play "Canadian Sunset"
klokwkdog: the version without the vocal
ah,clem: don't think I have that
willem van chillum: play "Tequila Sunrise".
klokwkdog: well, you ought to; important subtext in the wharf bar scene in Giant Rat...
Merlyn: karioke?
Merlyn: how about hari-karioke, where you lip-sync yourself to death
cease: i cant open it on my pc. i'm just turning on the mac now
cease: lol merl
willem van chillum: ah, canadian!
||||||||| mac cat waltzes in at 9:19 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
mac cat: ok lets try this
Merlyn: another cat?
willem van chillum: another cat
Merlyn: 2 cats and a dog and a deer
cease: hey, its the bride
willem van chillum: or is it the same one
klokwkdog: cat: for Windows, if it won't work by click, right click, select "copy link location" and then...
Bambi: hi Cat...with two lives ;-)
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "9:21 PM and late as usual, it's doctoast, just back from Billville."
willem van chillum: another doc
Merlyn: I thought you were white bread, doc
doctoast: what a freakin' week it's been
||||||||| 9:22 PM -- ah,clem left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
klokwkdog: in Winamp, use the menu->open URL option and paste the URL in the dialog (use CTRL-V to paste). Same sort of thing works in RealPlayer
doctoast: no, i'm baked to a golden brown
cease: a week of freakiness?
cease: i thought hunter thompson was dead!
klokwkdog: dead air!
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'ah,clem', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:23 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
doctoast: i've worked a week and a half and it's only thursday
ah,clem: lost stream do to refresh
doctoast: no sign of letup tomorrow either
ah,clem: k now
willem van chillum: TGIT
klokwkdog is reminded of recent NYT articles on Electronic Arts as sweatshop
Bambi: the link in text form for inputting manually in a player is on the bottom of the schedule page on http://www.cniradio.com ... schedule has changed a bit too our JimmyLee and Bambi Show (news and views) is 7-10pm saturday night and on cband satellite schedule for http://www.cbandtalk.com
cease: i assumed as much, doc
cease: youve gotta make up for all that lost time in vancouver
Merlyn: I've read about that too, KWD
klokwkdog: I have been listening to the 2600 and leo laporte KFI stuff, bambi -- nice content, level is a bit low
cease: to pep you up, a parcel of japanese pepper is in the mail to you as i type, doc
doctoast: this weekend will present but a brief respite before all the shit hits the fan monday
klokwkdog resolves to move away from the fan, temporarily
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'llanwydd', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:25 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
klokwkdog: hey, Ilan
doctoast: that's when we launch (= 'open to the world') all the stuff we've been working on
llanwydd: missed everybody last week
cease: good luck, doc
klokwkdog: it's called "crunch" in the article, DT
Merlyn: oh, that'll be fun
Bambi: hi doc ...toasted tonight? ;-)
klokwkdog resolves to keep ducking
doctoast: yeah, we're two weeks into 'crunch'
Bambi: hi llanwydd
cease: llan
doctoast: we were supposed to have launched this past monday but too many problems surfaced in testing, we've been stomping out bugs right and left
cease: all over my nice clean kitchen floor!
llanwydd: stomping bugs is no fun I'm sure
doctoast: we are a week behind and mgmt is none too happy
klokwkdog: the NYT article is "Fringes vs Basics in Silicon Valley", which you might can find available w/o registration; if you're acolyte of the Gray Lady, it's here for awhile: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/03/09/technology/09games.html
klokwkdog: gad, DT, a week is positively benign in a software project!
Merlyn: budget, deadline, features: pick any two
klokwkdog: Ilan -- the bug-stomping comes next...after the unhappy users find them all...
doctoast: merl: don't forget "reliability"
Merlyn: you don't even GET to pick that
ah,clem: still need a request for the next FST album, and no, no lost shoe
Merlyn: lost shoe lost?
klokwkdog: you found the lost shoe?
klokwkdog: gesundheit!
doctoast: klok: we've actually got a test dev server to work from, so with this launch the likelihood of problems surfacing are way reduced from the way things have been in the past
ah,clem: yes, lost shoe lost
Merlyn: that was a broadway musical: "No, No Lost Shoe"
cease: did you find the demilitarization of the mind, hour hour clip, merl?
Bambi: I really don't think we ever had lost shoe ... I've never heard it
llanwydd: the further adventures of the lost shoe
klokwkdog remembers working on a social services database system as mfr. tech support for a state whose ss budget exceeds Brazil's GDP
klokwkdog: they had a complete duplicate mainframe for development testing
klokwkdog: nevertheless, every update was followed by a couple months of hell...
doctoast: klok: ever hear of the 'subversion' version control system?
cease: this is good music
Merlyn: no Cat, I only ever got 2 clips from you, the two in the podcasting dir and/or hour hour directory
Merlyn: www.firesigntheater.com/hour
klokwkdog: yeah, thanks to Bambi, indirectly; it's used for Kismet, replacing CVS
cease: i'll check out that other one but i dont think that's it. i thought i sent you demilitarizaition, my fave
Merlyn: The hour hour page has the dates, that might help
klokwkdog: that's a nice list of cuts, Merlyn. I saw the FST NG post and checked out some of the tracks -- some of the commercials I'd never heard
klokwkdog: DT - CNI Radio had a discussion of Kismet upgrades; I went to its Sourceforge page and found the subversion ref
||||||||| Catherwood announces "It's 9:37 PM; let's see who falls in through our celebrity trap door!" -- he pulls a lever, and Phil Austin plummets onto the oriental shag rug.
klokwkdog: but virgin control only assists screwups in group development, most of the bugs are smarter than that ;-))
doctoast: good evening maestro
llanwydd: Hey Phil!
Bambi: sourceforge has most anything you can imagine project wise
Merlyn: hey, three chats in a row
Phil Austin: I'm early for once
ah,clem: Hi Phil
doctoast: you certainly are!
klokwkdog: three weeks in a row -- maybe we are becoming habit-forming?
Bambi: hi Phil! You made it early ... cool!
Phil Austin: Just wanted to say hello, yes three in a row
Bambi: made it and early :-)
cease: hi phil
Phil Austin: did i interrupt somethng highly technical?
doctoast: i'm sorry i
Merlyn: Thought of a great marketing idea - Contraceptive SpongeBob
doctoast: i'm sorry i've missed the last 2 wks
klokwkdog: even the cupholder has a cupholder...
cease: no merl, this isnt austin and bergman rapping about their military careers. this is something else
cease: ossman plays private parts
Bambi: Bride of Firesign is on CNI Radio
klokwkdog: (hopefully, Phil ended something technical and boring ;-)
doctoast: day job demands have been overwhelming
klokwkdog: LOL, Merlyn
||||||||| It's 9:40 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| willem van chillum - dead from jaundice
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Phil Austin: doc. yeah, I glanced briefly at the log and noticed you're up against the wall of science
cease: i used to listen to them on catnip and think i was in college
doctoast: that's putting it mildly
Bambi: and ah,clem interrupted it for a quick note to say hi to Phil :-)
Phil Austin: yo, cat
llanwydd: I was Willem, by the way
doctoast: our motto of late has been: "sleep deprivation as a way of life"
Phil Austin: I'm confused are ahclem and bambi the same person?
klokwkdog: did they bring in the cots yet? you know it's bad when they bring in the cots, DT
Merlyn: sometimes they are, phil

doctoast: thanks to takeout chinese, i'm feeling much better now
Bambi: nope...Bambi is me...and ah,clem is JimmyLee
Merlyn: llan, are you using fake names to get into the white house press room again? No more naked pictures of yourself in the rogue's gallery

cease: hey phil. fumiyo is back. icy is content. all the ishikawa species are happy
klokwkdog: er, logs. at the bottom
cease: this is a real nice bit of bebop on cni
Bambi: bebop?
Bambi: are you sure you are listening to CNI? Playing Bride of Firesign at the moment
klokwkdog lags considerably behind the audio Cat is hearing
cease: Bebop Lobo, austin's character in this piece
Merlyn: If your browser can grok a text file with no proper HTML header, you can see the rogue's gallery at http://firesigntheater.com/chat/logs/fstfooter
cease: ok i just heard bebop talk to the truckies, now they're going into the bldg
Merlyn: Hey, cat told us that Bergman married MaryEdith

doctoast: phil, once the dust settles i will have to get you copies of the pix i took in seattle - the shots of oona, you & cla came out well
cease: of so ossman told me
klokwkdog: Merlyn - it's better to look at last week's log; I tried the link you just put up and it's all raw HTML for Firefox
Bambi: ah, LOL ok...had me worried there Cat ...whew
Phil Austin: I've lost a little track. Phone call from Shelrae the Idaho babe with news of her impending trip to china
Merlyn: yeah KWD, it has no header because it's for appending to a HTML file
Phil Austin: yes bergman and maryedith celbrated an already existing marriage
doctoast: leme try that again: phil, once the dust settles i will have to get you copies of the pix i took in seattle - the shots of oona, you & clan came out well

Bambi: my parents did that on their 50th anniversary
doctoast: i will definitely pass along the info
klokwkdog always reconfirms, but still gets bumped...
klokwkdog: dang cost-cutting, bankrupt airlines
klokwkdog: suppose it's better than a 12-hour flight with a dead engine...
klokwkdog: clem - I'm not going to suggest the next FST cut to play, having requested one already; have you got a candidate yet?
cease: what would phil like to hear?
llanwydd: I've never been able to listen to that CNI
Bambi: nope ... he doesn't have any yet ... except mine...he has a cool set of Dear Friends that I was suggesting...unless folks would prefer something else.
klokwkdog: that's metaphysically absurd! how do I know?
Phil Austin: phil is useless at this sort of thing. lemme think ...
cease: danger down under would go well with this
cease: but you don't have that, eh, ah?
klokwkdog: Ilan -- it needs more hardware and more bandwidth than u got, sorry

doctoast: somewhere in that general vicinity
cease: phil, i got email from that guy in kansas today. chromium switch?

Phil Austin: yeah, tom gedwillow
cease: she is splendid. but i cant imagine him making you do anything
cease: he wanted ossman's email addy so i gave it to him
Phil Austin: he organized it an made it happen, that's what I mean
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 9:59 PM and Sneezy steps out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
Bambi: hi sneezy
llanwydd: hi sneezy
klokwkdog: don't know him, but Google says he was manager at WYCE, Grand Rapids in 2002
Merlyn: hey sneezy, you from Majority Report blog?
cease: the big sneezy
cease: new orleans smogy sister city
llanwydd: LOL Klok!
klokwkdog: too bad KenD started to starve and is now driving a truck; that's just up the road from where he is never at home at
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
klokwkdog: gesundheit
cease: starving is better in novels than in real life
doctoast: http://www.wyce.org/schedule.php?day_cursor=Monday
Bambi: got that right cat
Phil Austin: I have a friend in oregon who went from being a video guy in the tv industry and is now driving trucks in the middle east
Bambi: highly overrated
Merlyn: from shuck-n-jive to truck-n-drive
llanwydd: where in the middle east, Phil?
cease: bambi, you'll have to get a copy of Down Under Danger, a very surreal nick danger adventure
Phil Austin: llan: he actually can't say, swear to Allah
llanwydd: LOL
doctoast: i bet he can't!
klokwkdog: Ken put in for leave this weekend and got 11/12 Mar, but we were hoping he'd be at his folks' in FL early and join the chat tonight
Bambi: yes, definitely need that one ... since any Nick Danger is my absolute favorite
klokwkdog: it's a rough life, the way he tells it
klokwkdog: better than being shot at, even for $80K a year
cease: it would be great to have kend with us, listening to the turckers on bride
klokwkdog: yeah, I was grooving on that, Cat
klokwkdog: i called his cell earlier, got the "leave a message" thing
Phil Austin: i like to drive long distances
klokwkdog: if he's heading for FL due 11th, I hope he missed the storm; semis don't like wind
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Sunshine Jim', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 10:06 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
klokwkdog: it was blowing 110 mph at Kill Devil Hills on Tue, gusts to 60 mph here in RI, but considerably lighter today
||||||||| Outside, the 10:07 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving Dave coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Sunshine Jim: is this where i catch the hollyroyal bus?
klokwkdog: hey, Jim!
Dave: hi all, I spoke to Ken last weekend
doctoast: i remember taking many family road trips as a kid - gangs of fun

Sunshine Jim: can i bring my dog and bycycle?
Phil Austin: used to have a cb in my suburban and it was really nice to hear the chat on the road
Dave: he picked up a load of 43000 lbs of paper on the Sunday I spoke to him, will probably call him this weekend, doing well, lonely a truckers life is

Sunshine Jim: Phone call back soon

Phil Austin: yikes. what a difference between the original nd and bride
cease: i did a cartoon for adbusters. a fat man is about to put the earth on his fork in his mouth. the caption is "what's for desert?
llanwydd: selling kidneys door to door like a hawker?
Dave: there was a great simpsons thing on the blacboard at the begining of the episode theme that said, "I will not sell my kidneys on ebay"
Sunshine Jim: always dreamed of sex in a bathtub full of spaghetti
cease: in what sense, phil? the sound?
Bambi: nice to hear them both side by side like this

Phil Austin: cat: sound and intent
Bambi: no longer fading now llanwydd ;-)
doctoast: i pre-ordered mine from a reputable online vendor which which i have had good experiences in the past, i should have the upgrade in a week or so
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Bightrethighrehighre', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 10:14 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Dave: I used to Phil, I've since rejected most tv
Phil Austin: doc: congrats
cease: the original nick was more filler, wasnt it?
klokwkdog: "it's supposed to be Waffle House, but the 'a', 'l' in waffle and the 'e' in house are all missing. this is not your prime truck stop here..."
llanwydd: hey big
ah,clem: ...
doctoast: i heard a fascinating story today on npr, about a restaurant called 'the blind cow'
Sunshine Jim: eya nancy! watch out for the snails
cease: if that's what you mean by intent. the bride nick is a summation of a long career
Dave: lol kwd
Phil Austin: cat: actually the old one is deeper
doctoast: it's run by blind folk - guests are escorted through two heavy black curtains into a pitch-dark dining room
Bightrethighrehighre: surely, don't call me nancy....
cease: the world war 2 thing sure is
doctoast: you are literally eating in the dark
klokwkdog: Dave - sure (but we're talking). I'm awake for probably an hour now. I hate these hours
Dave: excellent doc
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'ELayne', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 10:15 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
ELayne: Ack! Hang on...
||||||||| At 10:15 PM, ELayne vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
Phil Austin: bride's awfully self-conscious and over-acted
doctoast: leme see if i can digup the link
||||||||| Outside, the 10:15 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving Elayne coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.

Sunshine Jim: don't call me surely and it's a deal
klokwkdog: I do like driving at night 'cause there's no traffic
Bambi: hi E!

Phil Austin: nice to know where ken is minute by minute
Bambi: yes, the old one is my all time favorite FST

doctoast: hi e
Elayne: Dang, the system seems kind of hung up on my end...
Elayne: Oh, that's not good, I have to manually refresh. I'm going to quit Mozilla and come back on IExplorer. Hang on again, sorry...
Sunshine Jim: where do all these words go? i mean is there a pile of them somewhere?
doctoast: hung down brung down hung up ...
||||||||| "10:18 PM? 10:18 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Elayne2 should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Elayne2 enters and sits on the couch.
Bambi: all are pure genius of comedy but still got a special place for Nick Danger :-)
doctoast: this just in: ken has made a left-hanf turn...
Elayne2: Merlyn, could you do the honors and kill off my old avatar? Thankee.
cease: just in terms of the sound, i was thinking how close in time nick danger is to johnnie dollar, maybe 15 years?
klokwkdog: I delivered 86 dishwashers to Sears this morning
||||||||| Merlyn aka 'The Reaper' has killed off Elayne at 10:18 PM
cease: the sound hadnt changed that much, as compared to now
doctoast: we'll have more details and a wacky animal segment 25 minutes from now
||||||||| At 10:19 PM, Elayne2 runs out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Elayne', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 10:19 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Phil Austin: I"m playing Nancy there
Elayne: Better. Sorry folks, Mozilla is misbehaving this evening...
doctoast: mojira!
cease: you're nick and nancy?
Dave: lol from paper to dishwashers
Phil Austin: his pickle in one hand and my contract in the other
Bambi: cool ... didn't realize that
Phil Austin: I haven't heard this in years
Dave: klok tell Ken I just tried to call him and that my cell is on if he wishes to call back
Bambi: sounds like you need Firefox 1.0.1 Elayne
Bightrethighrehighre: Any FST jazz fans out there?....I just put on Weather Report "8:30" live LP- In-ka-redible!!!!!yeah!
Sunshine Jim: i should'nt be here (my permit's just an old bus ticket) and i have'nt watched TV for 42 years
ah,clem: is one of the best Phil, we all love it
Dave: yeah I like Weather Report, course I only have one album
doctoast: oh yeah - zawinul & co. - haven't heard them in years
Phil Austin: yes, i had to play nancy so phil could do rocky in that scene. it's radio. there's no multi-tracking.
Dave: yes this is possibly my fave piece
Elayne: Bambi, it IS Firefox 1.0, Mozilla's the company.
doctoast: the first couple of albums, and the ones w/jaco are my faves
Elayne: Firefox was misbehaving this evening. It's been good so far, but I dunno about tonight.
Bightrethighrehighre: Dave: 8:30 is a must have....!!
Phil Austin: I'd forgotten how carefully we were mimicking the way Old radio really sounded
doctoast: elayne: there's already an upgrade to firefox 1.0, it's firefox 1.0.1

Bambi: Firefox 1.0.1 is the newest version ... works great ... using it myself tonight
Phil Austin: that's phil singing both parts
Sunshine Jim: i can honestly say i have'nt heard of any of this!!!love u all! this is my stop
llanwydd: kind of like Arch Oboler, Phil
Phil Austin: so how accurate were we really
Elayne: Tom, honest, that's what I was using. Mozilla's Firefox 1.0.1 - and it wasn't refreshing this page tonight.
Bambi: yes, that was a large part of the beauty of it ... especially for those of us who were familiar with OTR
doctoast: pretty damn accurate phil
Dave: yeah it's great, I love OTR
Bambi: ok, have a great one Sunshine Jim (if that means you have to leave)
Bightrethighrehighre: Phil: the dog ate my "Big Book of Plays", I can't figure out which one of you guys does the W. C. "Bill" Fields voice @ H C Y B....?? thanks....
doctoast: time for a night cap - vodka tonix !
Bambi: sounds like you deserve one doc!
Dave: who did Roosevelt? I can't read the big book
Phil Austin: and no jewish writers, says Peter

Dave: I don't know E that's why I'm asking
llanwydd: yeah Pete was FDR
Phil Austin: big: it's alternately me and proctor on various records. actually, I'd have to hear it to identify

Dave: where did you come up with the "wa dee doo da" thing? I love that
cease: its a little egyptsheen
Elayne: Say hi for me, Tom!
Phil Austin: this is deep. that's longer than anyone's been gone before
doctoast: e: i will
Merlyn: I thought another actor was credited for FDR on 2 places
Phil Austin: this is peter playing nancy
Dave: "giving away free high schools?" never understood that
Elayne: I must say, this is pretty cool listening to Nick Danger with PA on chat. :)
Bambi: have a great night Doc
Dave: it's awesome thanks Phil
Elayne: About as much fun as listening to Dwarf when DO visited me that time years ago...
Phil Austin: dave; you're young. in the fifties it was standard that drug dealers hung out around high schools giving out free reefer
Dave: ah thanks phil
Phil Austin: hi, elayne
Elayne: *mwa* Hey Phil!
Bightrethighrehighre: Phil: I was curious, specifically about, the....ah...."wee native compendium, Mo-Hah-MEET...." near the beg of h c y b
llanwydd: so how does it become free high schools?
Phil Austin: there's two of everybody except me
Dave: the best part, two of everyone! how did that work? multitrack?

Phil Austin: big: i think that's me
Phil Austin: big: i think that's me
Elayne: I love this scene in ND. I still can't figure out how y'all did it, Phil.
cease: reminiscent of the line with pico and alvarado, since 1400, that's 2000 years
Elayne: "Half Caste Woman" is you and David, yes?
||||||||| It's 10:30 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:

Phil Austin: omigod. there's two of me. and i'm in red
Merlyn: warning new software coming in
Bambi: any other requests of FST ?
doctoast: though once this vodka kicks in i may have to call it a night - i was up late last night and today was a 10 hr day at the orifice
Dave: "ok hold on, ok go"
Phil Austin: elayne: wasn't listening closely. dog fight broke out downstairs
Elayne: Yeah, of course FDR's voice is Bergman, it couldn't be anyone else...
Elayne: Yikes, Phil! How many you have now?
Phil Austin: leaving now for a while. i'll be back. yes, that's peter doing roosevelt
doctoast: it's a dog eat dog world out there
cease: ofcourse
klokwkdog: Ken says : hi to everyone and one of these weeks I'll have a laptop and be able to join in...
Elayne: Two cats is plenty for us, the way they tussle.
Dave: take your word for that E
doctoast: e: i think either 4 or 5 - literally -
Elayne: Now you can take Phil's word for it, Dave. :)
klokwkdog: Dave - Ken is going to call your cell shortly
llanwydd: I'd like to request one for the boys up at Ramashakri Ashram...
Elayne: Oh, I know what I wanted to ask you, Phil. Have you updated your weblog lately? I love the photos you used to post.
klokwkdog checks the chat log 2 see what he missed
doctoast: e: phil's weblog hasn't been updated since sept 2004 - but people keep adding to the comments and he occasionally responds to the discussion
Elayne: Heh, you're not the only one back-checking, Klok...
Dave: klok yeah I got him on the phone
Elayne: Tsk, September '04! That's practically a dead log...
doctoast: i think phil has to go and deal with uncooperative pets - he'll probably turn pink soon
Merlyn: someone just wrote to the website wanting all the lyrics to "Nasi Goring"; anyone have them?
doctoast: ooh, let's see if i can bang that out - hang on
Elayne: Merlyn, all I have is a recipe...
cease: im never boring
cease: hey just listen to the song and write em down
Merlyn: He says there are a few words that are hard to make out
llanwydd: I remember when Bergman logged on here long, long ago.
Elayne: Llan, I don't believe it.
cease: yes, i spoke with him at the time
Elayne: Goodness!
Merlyn: This log: http://www.firesigntheatre.com/chat/logs/fstchat_20030612.html
Elayne: Don't DO that, Merlyn, you scare me. :)
Merlyn: June 12, 2003
Merlyn: Look, there IS a search function
Elayne: I love when Jim gives us name-checks. Hi Jim!
Elayne: Merlyn, it's your dexterity with the search function that scares me... honest, I didn't think you'd memorized it...
ah,clem: hi E
Elayne: I mean, I'm dang good at 'net searching at work, but at home I seem to even break Firefox... :)
ah,clem: no one breaks firefox... LOL
Bambi: lol
Elayne: Okay, you so smart... I'll go back to using it. BRB.
||||||||| Catherwood says "10:38 PM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs Elayne by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Elayne', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 10:38 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
klokwkdog: whew, it was rough listening to Ken in one ear, listening to CNI on another and trying to read chat. I'm sure Dave can do better, but I got 'way behind on the text stuff
Bambi: lol
Elayne: Okay, you ol' Firefox, don't disappoint me now...
klokwkdog: i see phil has gone to deal with something temporarily
Elayne: Nice multitasking, Klok! Give Ken a big virtual hug for me.
Elayne: Klok, prolly his doggies.
klokwkdog: if you break Firefox, they send someone to deal with you...it's scary...
Elayne: Heh, Klok. :) Seems to be working okay now...
cease: fox dont fail me now?
klokwkdog: tell Dave, E -- he's on the phone to Dave now...
Bambi: wb E! ... might want to get the latest version...1.0 has been replaced with 1.0.1 on mozilla.org ... fixed some vulnerabilities
Elayne: I much prefer chatting on Firefox, it doesn't give me annoying clicks every time the page refreshes.
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Bubba's Brain', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 10:40 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Bubba's Brain: Hey all!
cease: the bubman
Elayne: Bambi - that's what I'm using, 1.0.1 - Robin always makes sure to put the latest version of stuff on my computer.
Elayne: Hi Bubba!
klokwkdog: yeah, Bambi -- I can't go to all the Uzbeck porno sites I used to hang out at :-(
Merlyn: Phil is away tending dogs right now
Bambi: if it ever seems to not refresh part of the page...just hit the refresh button and it should fix ... should be refreshing on its own though
Elayne: I think I know what might have happened - I had chat on one tab and Bloglines open on another, and maybe it has a problem refreshing one tab exclusively...
Merlyn: or something
Bubba's Brain: Hey Cat, E, everyone...
Bambi: lol...count yourself lucky klok ... at least you don't get malwared either
Elayne: Oh good lord, is this TV Or Not TV?
Merlyn: right, bambi; a manual refresh should refresh everything, though the msg frame should refresh automatically
Bambi: hi Bubba
Bubba's Brain: dialuping from home tonight.
Bubba's Brain: Hey, Bam Bam.
klokwkdog: it was stranging on me last week, Merlyn, but it might have been an aftereffect of a page I'd loaded earlier that day; after Win98SE and Netscape 7, it's so wonderful to not have to reboot or reload the browser that maybe I abuse the privilege...
Bambi :)
Elayne: "...self controlled automated broadcasting..." brilliant, another one 20 years ahead of its time...
klokwkdog: Dave is graying out, so he must still be chatting with ken
Elayne: One of my favorite cable channels is MagRack, where I get to choose a program and what time I'll watch it...
klokwkdog: hi bub
ah,clem: don't fell bad bubba, sending stream via dialup, and yes it is inot the best
klokwkdog: best dialup stream I've heard, Clem!!
Bambi: and Phil's getting a little pink around the edges now too
ah,clem: yes E, they so often were 20 or so years ahead
Elayne: Oh good, Bosco Hearn... "what was one, is noooothing..."
Bambi: Clem does great work :-)
Bubba's Brain: I don't feel bad. Started out on 300 baud acoustic coupler printing on yellow thermal paper.
klokwkdog started out on a Bell 103 110 baud wired modem that near took a US Senator to get the telco to connect...
Merlyn: I used to screw with acoustic modems by whistling at them
klokwkdog always knew that Merlyn is actually the reincarnation of "Captain Crunch"
klokwkdog: especially with a kleptomaniac cat stealing all his parts, Bambi
Bambi: was introduced to computers, cassette loading programs and a 300 baud modem with hand coded dialer (Clem coded it) for the CoCo in 1986 ... first time I'd ever been on a computer, except a Commodore 64 for playing games.
cease: all of you who are not here.
cease: what a profound line
Bubba's Brain: Had a Vic20... learned to program assembly on it.
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Bunnyboy', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 10:49 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Bunnyboy: lo dere
klokwkdog began by reserving one of the two 'fancy' IBM 029 keypunches by telling waiting students that it was the "left-handed" model...
cease: boy
Merlyn: hey bb
Bambi: yes, you are right Klok ... That Darn Cat LOL!
Bubba's Brain: Hey Bb.

Bunnyboy: lo Mr President

Bunnyboy: lo "gals". *wink*
klokwkdog: rathskeller?
Bubba's Brain: Fire-stein = hot german beer mug.
Merlyn: Dave died waiting for new software
Bunnyboy: and boyz, too
Bambi: Root has a leash ... and we use it when we take him in the car
Bubba's Brain: Rat's Killer?
cease: havent they fired that stein yet?
Bambi: Root lays down and plays with the LEASH!
Bunnyboy: Of course, some people go both ways...
cease: what's the matter with that kliln?
Bunnyboy scratches his scarecrow haid
llanwydd: And I must say goodnight. How shall I say it? In Gluscluk, an Inuit dialect. "Fwyhkljr cjkldyetrye vmfvfnjn fjklu"..
Bunnyboy: nite llan!

Bunnyboy: Ah! TV OR NOT TV! Funsies. Or is this Shoes for Industry?

Bubba's Brain: Nite, Il.
klokwkdog must attend to prepping his dinner plate for a few min...back shortli
cease: buy the president some hash
Bambi: was TV or Not TV
Bunnyboy: cats and docs are fading. Say it ain't so!
Bambi: now Clem's starting Don't Crush That Dwarf (hand me the pliers)
cease: al the drugs w took never did him any good. he's the anti-hunter thompson
Bambi: should be coming at you any minute now
Merlyn: hey clem, I didn't know you knew cap'n crunch
Bambi: enjoy Klok
Bunnyboy: Cap'n Crunch is long in the ground. Daws Butler took him with him.
Elayne: Well, I'd better get back to my sick hubby... see y'all next week!
cease: this is from 3 faces?
Merlyn: not THAT one. The phone blue-box hacker
Bunnyboy: nite El! Get well, Robin!
cease: get well robin
Merlyn: bye E

Bambi: he's known a few over the years :-)
Bambi: night E
Bambi: wish Robin speedy recovery
Bunnyboy: Ah! cat was hiding in that cease shell all along. Hiya cat.
Merlyn: hey bambi, did you or clem ever call that phone booth in the desert?
cease: hi bun
cease: just got my ticket for the whitdbye show
cease: the 3:00
ah,clem: yes, know the hacker Capt, but only from on line
cease: are you attending?
Bubba's Brain: If a phone rings in the desert, and nobody is there to hear it, does it ring?
Merlyn: I don't know yet, cat
Bambi: not me Merlyn
ah,clem: good you, at least understood what I meant, Merlyn
cease: i was talking to bunny but your input is equally welcome, merl
Bunnyboy: The opening to DWARF should be de rigeur lissenin' for all prospective ADR aspirants.
Merlyn: I might be there cat
Bubba's Brain: asperins?
cease: at the 3, merl?
Bunnyboy: cease: aaaaand I still don't know. I'm probably gonna con either Bunnette or my friend Al into doing the ferry ride over.
||||||||| It's 11:00 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| llanwydd - dead from Globner's disease

cease: te 3, bun?
cease: yeah i turned the mac off. i get cni fine on the pc now
ah,clem: sure love dwarf, a great piece
Merlyn: If I go, I'd probably stay for both sows
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Dave', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 11:00 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Merlyn: and the shows, too, not just the pigs
klokwkdog: CNI fine is much, much better than CNI coarse, Cat
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Bambi: ferry ride ... that would be a cold ride up there!
Bambi: wb Dave
cease: horse corsets?
Dave: hey guys just had a good conversation with Kend, he says hello, gonna catch some sleep before he gets on the road at about 2:30 or so, workin' the night life
cease: false drugs!
Bunnyboy: BTW, I saw a film recently where the ADR folks were credited as "Voice Cast" or some such. Are the unions looking for more "audience comprehensible" tech labels?
klokwkdog: it was 70 in Seattle yesterday, wasn't it Bambi?
Bambi: glad to hear it Cat ... did the troubleshooting on the schedule page help?
Bunnyboy: cease: Yes, I would imagine it would be a day trip. It's at least an hour from home.
ah,clem: great to hear he is ok, dave
Dave: oh I've never understood this song
cease: i'm not sure, bambi. i just tried it again and now am using quicktime. before it was a failed media player
cease: i dont think its supposed to be understood, dave. but you can ask phil
Bightrethighrehighre: "REAL DRUGS are BETTER" bumper stickers, shall be issued....!!
Bunnyboy: Bambi: Naw, it's a puddle jump. Whidbey is an island, after all.
Bambi: oh, ok...was thinking of the wrong area up there
klokwkdog: there must be a full FAQ explaining it, Dave (or should be)
||||||||| Catherwood says "11:03 PM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs Dave by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
cease: its like lewis carrol inventing words
Bubba's Brain: A one way driver, yeah.
cease: a brain exercise
||||||||| Dave sneaks in around 11:04 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last week's "unpleasant incident."
Bambi: ok Bunny :-)
ah,clem: well, that is understandable, dave, but refers to "seeing the light" as in church, but also, as an intandra, the literal
klokwkdog: ...of course, Puget Sound is never warm, even at the end of August...
Bunnyboy: In fact, I remember reading that one of the city pioneers, or his kin, drowned in a botched small boat passage to Whidbey, many many moons ago.
Dave: so you guys don't get it either then? the song
Bambi: we have been riding a ferry to get to many of our clients for years now ... summer and winter ... even in VA ... Jan and Feb can get pretty darn cold in 15-20 minutes without heat and engine on.
ah,clem: or were you speaking of the march?
Bunnyboy: DINNER AT EIGHT is back on video, as are 5 other classic comedies, in a box set or separately.
klokwkdog: no, but there's so many puns in it Dave that it would take awhile. There is a city called Augusta Maine, for example
cease: the song has references to things that can be decoded, but the song as having meaning, i dont think so dave
ah,clem: that is a parody of a hymn
Bunnyboy: STAGE DOOR, that's it!
klokwkdog: "your bison now are dust", for example, is ref. to the slaughter as the West was opened
Dave: hmmm
klokwkdog: yeah, it's a parody of the kind of goofy hymn that these TV religious revivals use
Merlyn: There goes a cross-album joke
ah,clem: howl of the wolf movie now begins, I love this
Bambi: inhumane slaughter of bison by the thousands ... leaving the bodies to rot, dry and blow in the dust ....
klokwkdog: this album is, as best I can tell, the ONLY recording ever nominated for a science fiction "Hugo" award (it lost)
ah,clem: the pizza gag, Merl?
Dave: well I'm having problems with my browser and need to get some sleep, I'll talk to you all next week I geuss, oh and I'll have more time I'll be off from school for a bit
Bunnyboy: I just started watching Vol. 3 of SCTV. The presentation on the Bob and Doug phenomenom is classic.
Bambi: turn into dust to blow in the wind more accurately I guess
doctoast: merl ya still there?
klokwkdog: nite Dave
Merlyn: Yes, clem
doctoast: nite dave?
doctoast: dave!
Bunnyboy: nite Dave!
Merlyn: yes, doc, have the lyrics?

Dave: night all
Merlyn: OK doc
doctoast: there were only a couple of words here and there are are tough to make out, so i may have them wrong
||||||||| Catherwood says "11:11 PM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs Dave by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
klokwkdog: i mean the actress playing Barbara, as Phil mentioned last week
doctoast: but for the most part, peter's lyrics are decipherable
Merlyn: ok doc
doctoast: in lyrics is typo - 'telly' is supposed to be 'tellya'
Bunnyboy: Henry Aldritch!
Bunnyboy: oops, dat's Aldrich.
cease: i dont think i've ever heard henry aldrich. at least not in memory
Merlyn: I told Orson that's where "coming mother" is from at the LA show
klokwkdog has never seen a single one of the many H. Aldrich movies!
Bunnyboy: cease: Never? THE ALDRICH FAMILY? Beeg radio show, dat.
cease: orson didnt know? thats hard to believe
cease: ive heard clips from it, but never a whole show
Merlyn: a bit before his time; took me a while to remember "Aldrich"
doctoast: that was andy rooney was it?
cease: the fuck you is almost an "ah-chew!"
klokwkdog: oh, I was thinking of Andy Hardy
cease: thats why this album was so successful, so loved.
cease: its about a period of time in kids lives when they were most oppressed, ie aware of their oppression
Merlyn: Henry Aldrich: http://www.originaloldradio.com/aldrich_family.html
cease: after that, they can cut the soles off their shoes
cease: i really loke forward to seein gthis on stage at whidbey

klokwkdog: Kill Devil Hill in NC caught 110 gusts

cease: crying of lot 56?
klokwkdog: nope; the weather radar I worked on was same way, they consulted the Oracle and stuck the severe storms lab in Norman OK
Dexter Fong: No 72 I'm laughing
klokwkdog: thought it was hilarious until i was there in the summer and very quickly wanted to be 'way farther underground and surrounded by thick concrete
Dexter Fong: Still using soothsayers and that ilk eh?

cease: that is their strength, their inovation, their genius.
klokwkdog can't but think that a film of dwarf would be disappointing. fun, but maybe an animated version, a quality animated version?
cease: but more power to them if they can bring their old audio works into a visual realm
Dexter Fong: Cat: Yas they are...very much so..but not, I think to the extent that they can' make aspects of their work quite visually attractive and helpful
Dexter Fong: can't
cease: klok, if ossman were telling you his plans for it, would you tel him you would be dissapointed?
cease: how despairaging is that?
klokwkdog: you can do things in animation that transcend the real SFX. or maybe a combo, along the lines of Who Framed Rodger Rabbit?
cease: i look froward to them doing anything they get into doing
cease: yes klok, ala Ryan. amazing animaition could be done.
Dexter Fong: Let's see (punches nuumbers into calculator)...we can do this for about 6 1/2 Million
klokwkdog: cat - it takes incredible work to produce something like that; the original and certainly to organize a film
cease: look at Bosch?
cease: and a fuck of a lot of money, klok
cease: that may be why it hasnt happend
Dexter Fong: Hi Ronomous...wher's Reemamus
klokwkdog: so no, I wouldn't put it down, but having loved the audio version in my mind, it's unlikely that their manifested film version would jive with my mental landscape
cease: dex. more. the stupid brit/can high school cartoon i just saw, though well written, looked like shit and cost $8 mil
Dexter Fong: heh
cease: exactly, klok. which is why i hope it doesnt happen
klokwkdog: hopefully, it would be closer in harmony like LOTR films and less the kind of disappointment that Catch-22
klokwkdog: was
Dexter Fong: Cat: You've seen the video of "Everything", right...what's your opinion?
cease: ok good point, klok. 2 of my fave novels were steppenwolfe and that gunter grass book, both of which made a fine transition to film, althogh losing most of ither intlelecxtual beiauty
cease: no dex, i havcent
cease: only fragments
klokwkdog: The Tin Drum?
cease: it looked ok, but it wasnt the audio experience
Dexter Fong: I shall have to review it...IIRC didn't they lip sync at least parts of it?
cease: yes that s it\beautifulflick but only a fragment of the book
cease: evrything? it locked like it
klokwkdog: to do something like Dwarf as an animation, IMO, would require six hours or more of running time
Dexter Fong: Dwark II, The Emporer strikes Out
cease: i g3t the impression that the old flicks were made cuz someone else thought they could make money off the firesging, not that they imagined a way of doing their audio work in visual terms of the qulaity of the sound only version
Dexter Fong: Dwarf
klokwkdog: and it would really need to go to DVD set with an extra disc full of reference and interview to make it comprehensible on any level
cease: klok.,no. it would have to be in real time. 40 min or so
cease: like the stage play i[ll see soon
Dexter Fong: Klok: Don't forget the German Lesson Book
Dexter Fong: Well Dear Fire Friends.....It's time to Put Morpheus to bed
klokwkdog: cat, I respectfully think they'd need to write new stuff to foreshadow and postshadow it, make portions of Nick Danger and Bozos to tie into the album-album refs (and eventually make those, too) and so on. 'cause many audiences would only see the flick/cartoon once and think, WTF?
cease: as a dvd project, perhaps/ but the integrity of dwarf is just dwarf, not its explication
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 1 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
klokwkdog: It may be like Police Story, which got cancelled because the network decided it was too complicated for the audience...
cease: ok dex
cease: sleep well
Dexter Fong: Klok: Yes...another reason for their inability to reach a really wide audience...their work is too referential
klokwkdog: how could it make money, and if it wasn't designed to make money, how could it be financed?
klokwkdog: nite Dex
Dexter Fong: Night Guides
cease: i think they tried to be commercial. with limited success, as firesigns anyway
klokwkdog: they reached a wide audience in the '60s, Dex -- perhaps Gresham's Law is afflicting the population, too?
klokwkdog: well, yeah, they can sink to the Howard Stern level and be very popular
cease: they have a good agent now, if you read tailor's journal
cease: that means money in theri pockets, but the vast sums to make a flick, i dont see it happening
klokwkdog: OTOH, David Letterman is very popular; maybe not as popular as Leno
cease: and i'm not unhappy about that
klokwkdog: part of it has to do with the network or studio or whatever be willing to keep plugging away for a year or two or three and eventually the following builds
cease: arenty they equally popular, klook? i watch both of them, and suspect so do many others
klokwkdog: well, Leno is shooting at a mainstream audience and Letterman is shooting at a hip one
cease: john stewart is vastly superior, but at an earlier time slot
klokwkdog: not that they're both not aiming at a target not 10% apart from each other
klokwkdog: he's on cable
cease: ok,, not here, klok. we have an entirely different situation
klokwkdog: Saturday Night Live also took months, years to build
cease: realy? i thought it was instantly popular
klokwkdog: the problem is that once you have that kind of buildup, the audience then wants the same stichk every time
cease: i remember watching the first show, and admiring carlin for coming out with long hair\for a lot of us, that was a big thing then, and youre older than me
klokwkdog: not much, Cat
cease: thatr what killed hendirx. i've been watchying a lot of shows about him and the fact when he played new stuff they all booed drove him deeper in to toxic drugs, which soon kille dhim
klokwkdog: I used to watch the Lloyd Dobbins/Linda Ellerbee news thing that was in that same time slot and kind of "fell in" to SNL by default -- I tended to be up at that time and would be confused about which was on that Saturday...
cease: very very sad, watching all this, he was a genius, but like many, couldnt take the demands that placed upon him.
klokwkdog: yeah, there's that classic skit about Dylan in Lemmings which about wraps it up
cease: of course folks throwing him bags of heroin while he was performing didnt help
klokwkdog: there was something of an exploration of that in Ken Burn's Jazz with respect to Jazzmen
klokwkdog: and commentary by some contemporaries about how many seemed to think that was the way to become a good performer and the toll that took
||||||||| It's 1:10 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Bightrethighrehighre - dead from pneumonia
||||||||| Bubba's Brain - dead from the yaws
||||||||| Dexter Fong - dead from the fiddlers
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
klokwkdog: i've read other commentary about writers and suggestion that they were ill in some way and were self-medicating with drugs, alcohol before there were medicines that could help
klokwkdog: so if this stuff is taken away, does the creative spark vanish? or an addiction just really sometimes just an addiction?
cease: i dont think coltrane would have been coltrane without his heroin, but others were his equal without it.
klokwkdog: and Chet Baker?
cease: no i think addiction is part of the personality that achieves where it goes becaue of thatr
cease: and many others. but did miles become a kilometers when he gave up junk?
cease: did junk ever do any good for wiliam burroghs?
klokwkdog: oh, in that case, I think it became a good excuse
cease: a sober kerouac would have lived long and written tons o' shit
klokwkdog: i doubt alcohol ever helped Kerouac beyond providing some experiences to write about
cease: so varied is the experience of the human concsiousness with intoxicartion one cannot possibley generalize on the effects
klokwkdog: but I think that Kerouac resonated at a time period and could not grow beyond that, while the public consciousness did
cease: but without bieng drunk he wuold not have had those experiences. i know that empircially
cease: hey, i talked to neal's wife and son, and neal od's, essentially, which they can accuse me of leaching off of for neal amid
klokwkdog: yeah, but the thing is, he kept on being drunk when he didn't need to be, and that was a problem
cease: i would like to see an era when the influence of booze or drugs is no more a matter of concern than the influence of broccoli or spinache on an artist
klokwkdog: i am afraid that we have only seen the beginning, Cat, only the beginning
cease: both neal and jack liked being blotto. and the english languagfe is different because of that fact
cease: the begiining of persecution?
klokwkdog: I suspect that someday, people may deliberately engineer their consciousness in finer ways than we can now with drugs or alcohol or tobacco or caffine, deliberately so they can write/create things that a "standard" person can't
cease: i've already entered my pike in the war against the war in krassner's books, among others. my visual contrbutions wil l occurs soon
klokwkdog: they will bend themselves and essentially send messages back that we can appreciate, but never create ourselves
cease: yes, that wil happen cklok. i see it with the pot connoisuers here
klokwkdog: drugs, etc. will seem so crude, so primitive
cease: i am la brea man
klokwkdog: the whole brain will become a canvas, and I suspect that it may lead to real disruptions in society, since it won't just be artists and athetes abusing such power
cease: that was kesey's dream, and leary's, and buddhas"
klokwkdog: Dick's "Pennfield Mood Organ" will only be a pale shadow of what we'll be able to do if we choose
cease: the firewsign are more detached, less messianic, i hope
cease: yes, but i suspect not in my lifetime
klokwkdog: no, not for the ordinary person, I guess
cease: we're stil stumbling with primitive pharmacology
klokwkdog: and other things may interfere; bad things, good things or just "other" things we can't imagine, but things to happen next week or next year
cease: where is rhode island? is it far from new york and dc?
cease: does my train from those cities go through there?
klokwkdog: oh, they have a lot of pieces ready, Cat; I'm thinking more along the lines of viruses and stem cells, not "drugs" per se
klokwkdog: Providence is a $60 Amtrak ride from NYC, Cat, or a $30 weekend shuttle from Boston, Cat
cease: so north of ny?
klokwkdog: it would make more sense for everyone to congregate in NYC than for you to go to Bridgeport and RI and such
klokwkdog: it's halfway the train ride from NYC->Boston, Cat
cease: yes, lili invited me to stay at her place but its in con so when elayne suggested her place, it sounds closer
cease: in the grewater nyc area, i believe
klokwkdog: you can get to Bridgeport or a station near DT by Metro North cheap, but once Amtrak gets involved, not so
cease: docand lili said they want to go to the planetarium with me, a major reason for my visit to the city
klokwkdog: yeah, NYC is more central and it makes more sense for us to go there than the reverse, diffuse thing for you
klokwkdog: ah, they plan to stuff you into the projector at Hayden and see what comes out?
cease: i arrive in dc and finally meet richard arnold, one of the founders of this chat and the bitsite
cease: i'll be splendiforous
cease: richard is mr. nasa
cease: also the planet proctor web mage
klokwkdog: There is a nice Dali exhibition in Philly, apparently; I was just listening to a show about him and the exhibition
klokwkdog: yeah, don't miss the Air and Space museum, then Cat
cease: there is an art museum in the philly area, amazing stuff rarely exhibitied outside the museum. looks like stuff i'd like to see, but dont even knwow where philly is
klokwkdog: look for the Japanese parachute bomb; it doesn't look like much, but it was on display last I was there 20 years ago
cease: you know, i saw that in 64, klok
cease: i rmeember the spirit of st. lousi, and one of the gemeni capsules
cease: i was there 41 years ago, klok
klokwkdog: Philly is about an hour south of NYC, Cat. It's kind of NYC->Philly->Baltimore/WashDC (the latter quite close to each other, like 30-40 mi.; the suburbs mingle, like colliding galaxies)
cease: too bad my trip is so short, but i wouldn't want to impose upon virtualy unknown friends for long periods of time
klokwkdog: it's on the I-95 "corridor" along the coast
klokwkdog: well, IMO, RI is a "nothing to see here, move along" kind of place
cease: yes, la is like that. the coast of california is largely the suburbs of la
klokwkdog: if you're here here, well, there is stuff to see, but not to cross the continent for
cease: even spaulding thought so little of it he killed h imself
klokwkdog: RI or NYC?
klokwkdog: sounded to me like he was in other kinds of pain, not stuck in Bridgeport or something
cease: either one, klok, i dont know
klokwkdog: that family has had a problem with such things, like the Hemingways
cease: two of my fave writers, spaulding and hunter decided their lives werent worht living. how do they figure that? i dont know, i dont want to know
cease: yes, sp's mother, hunter's hemingway fixation.
cease: the two best evenigns ive ever spent in a theatre were watching spaulding here in van
klokwkdog: hunter had physical pain and that may have affected his mental state
cease: but as a drug connoiuseseur, could nt he have found a proper medication?
klokwkdog: i only saw the film of Swimming to Cambodia and short TV or radio things, but I was impressed
cease: everyone has physiocal pain
cease: few has his expertise
cease: live he was better than firesign, klok.
klokwkdog: yeah. dunno, cat. i think the pharmaceuticals are pretty crude
cease: we live in a primitive age, alas
klokwkdog: you mean unscripted, off the cuff, or live with a script?
cease: vonngeut talks about his sis's suicide, the bad chemicals in her brain
cease: ot yhet discovered whart the good ones are
klokwkdog: i'm thankful for what we've got and hopeful for the future (w/caveats re previous comments about some aspects of the future I can imagine)
cease: but friends of mine with mentally fucked family members are very well stabilitiezed by current drugs
klokwkdog: we all know someone who just turned a corner and there was nothing you could do
cease: scripated, klok. very scripted. but perfect
cease: the firesign only get that after take 600 on dwarf. it cant be done live
klokwkdog: Gray was more or less stabilized until his wreck
cease: did he stop taking his pills?
cease: did hunter?
cease: were you here when austin was asked about hutner's death?
klokwkdog: cat - dunno, but it may be that he lost hope or needed a new prescription. He tried several times; the other thing is that I think the people near him had gotten exhausted trying to save him
cease: austin said it was perfect, but i dont know, having just watfched breakfast with hutner this morning
klokwkdog: i think so, cat
cease: hunter? yes i heard that
klokwkdog: Cat - Gray painted a word picture; FST paints an audio picture, you know what I mean?
cease: hmmm
klokwkdog: It's like a perfect pitch soloist and something like a small group doing Vivaldi's "Gloria"
cease: i closed my eyes when he was on stage and i was there in grayland to a much greater extent than i was in firesign land
klokwkdog: there is harmony and resonance that even someone as vocally talented as Robert Johnson was on the guitar can't match
cease: yes, his singular voice as opposed to the firesign putting voices togheter
klokwkdog: also, Gray did things that were like tone poems, almost Joycean in a consciousness sense, whereas Firesign reminds me of something like T.S. Elliot where you have to soak it for awhile. (I know, Joyce was referential, but Gray does not so impress me, or it's more on the surface and not very complex; it's all about speed and color and sensualness)
klokwkdog: yes, but Gray isn't doing "parts" or voices for his characters and it's often from his own point of view, looking out
cease: tone indeed. but the theatrical expericne of just him on stage and the audience soaking up his words were as nothing i've expereinced ina ton of theatre i've seen, and been part of
cease: if the firesign are an extension of old time radio, spaulding was an extention of mark twain on stage i think
klokwkdog: you experience his stuff in a landscape in your mind, yes, but you build the landscape and characters -- there are no "props", no suggestions of voice tone or background sounds or even coincidence of multiple speakers: you must create that from the words
cease: the expressoin of the words
klokwkdog: so is he "better" than FST? Sure. And FST is "better" than Gray. It's apples and oranges
cease: i taught english for a living for a long time. i'm way into how words sound and mean.
klokwkdog: Yes, but with Gray's stuff, you have to do lots more mental heavy lifting, I think
cease: my experience as an audience member for 2 gray shows was more intense, pleasureable, intellectually stimulating and downright intoxicating than the half a dozne firesign shows i saw. does tht answr your questoin?
klokwkdog: and you have to fill in more holes in the mental landscape yourself; first, you have to throw it together as quick as he talks, so there's lots of it where there's a "coming soon" sign and you just deal with it
cease: but firesign is even faster in that 4 people are firing at me, and all with great lines
klokwkdog: dunno, cat, I've never had the pleasure of a FST show; I enjoyed Proctor and Bergman in DC once, and it was more of a celebration than a new presentation (Mt. Afterglow nuke plant tour)
cease: i thnk the brain strains to make sense of 4, slides more easily into only 1
klokwkdog: the other thing is that I can't go back and get anything more out of Gray's stuff once I've heard it
klokwkdog: it's like playing an old favorite record, but no more
cease: yes, i agree with that. i have his stuff on tape but never watch it
cease: spaulding live was my greatest theatrical experience. fiesign not efven in top 50, maybe not even in top hundred. but i can listen to their albums forever
klokwkdog: i keep mining new stuff from FST even as I revisit the riffs I know and love (and think I understand -- the Tirebiter married to Beaubeaux actress thing from Austin last week threw me for a loop)
cease: yes, they will always reveal new stuff to us
cease: an endless mine
klokwkdog: Philip Glass commented once in an interview that every time he watched "Oklahoma", the climax came in the same place
klokwkdog: but every time he watched "Waiting for Godot", he had a new experience, and he wanted his music to be like that
cease: something i learnd in cinematography class. dont have the same lighting all the time
klokwkdog: um, just lost my last lamp 10 min. ago, writing by the light of the monitor...
cease: a shadowless land
klokwkdog: speaking of lighting...
klokwkdog: many shadows now
cease: ok i'll let you go klok
cease: back to the shadows again
cease: joh stewart is on soon
klokwkdog: amen
klokwkdog: nite Cat, lurkers all
||||||||| At 1:53 AM, klokwkdog vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
||||||||| It's 2:00 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| cease - dead from measles
||||||||| 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."
