A Firesign Chat


||||||||| 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 April 21, 2005 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'ah,clem', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 8:54 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FireSignTheatre" this week featuring some "hour-hour" clips'

||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'llanddmyne', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:05 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
llanddmyne: hi ah
||||||||| 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 Elayne disembarks at 9:05 PM.
llanddmyne: NP: "The Geese and the Ghost" - Anthony Phillips
||||||||| 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...

Elayne: Evenin' Jim, Fran, Llan!
Bambi: Hi Clem, E! and llan
Elayne: Um, why are you saying hi to Jim? Don't you, like, live there too? :)
Bambi waves happily
llanddmyne: He went to Jim High School
||||||||| Catherwood ushers cease into the room, accepts a grimy quarter as a gratuity, mumbles something about 9:08 PM, then departs.
cease: hey
llanddmyne: hi cat
cease: free high schools? gimme 2
Bambi: yep ... we chat to each other all day too ... from our separate offices and sit and talk as well.
Elayne: Hi Cat! Two weeks and counting! And with any luck by the time you're here I'll have a new job, or be well on my way to one...
Bambi: hi Cat
cease: great news, el
llanddmyne: sorry only 1 school per family
Elayne: Robin's going to test his ability to get on chat from his Mac shortly, Cat, just to make sure you'll be all set. :)
||||||||| Catherwood leads Temporarily Tweeny County inside, makes a note of the time (9:09 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
cease: hi bambi and clem. i was gonna email you with an offer of firestuff but not sure i have your email addy. i probably do

Temporarily Tweeny County: Hey, all...
Elayne: Hey Tweeny!

Bambi: that's great cat
Elayne: I hope DocTech shows up tonight, so we can ask him about coming up to CT that weekend.
cease: rmemeber when we were talking to austin and i suggested you play his down under danger, which you dont have?
||||||||| Outside, the 9:11 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving Robin coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
cease: i tried emailing him the location of a cbc article but it was bounced back, his message box was full
llanddmyne: I thought doc lived in CT
Bambi: can always get email addys from cniradio.com too if you don't have it nearby ... cni@cniradio.com will get to both of us

cease: hi robin
Bambi: hey Tweeny
Bambi: hi Robin
llanddmyne: hi Robin
Temporarily Tweeny County: (switching to a different browser - back in a minute)
||||||||| Catherwood says "9:12 PM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs Temporarily Tweeny County by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
Elayne: Robin wants to know how Catherwood knows we're both coughing. :)
llanddmyne: Catherwood, can
Bambi: I hear ya E ... we have one floor between our offices .. I'm upstairs and Clem's in the library down stairs
llanddmyne: cant you see you're upsetting Robin. Leave us a loan
Elayne: Fran, Robin's dreaming of us getting a house so we can be on different floors. :)
Elayne: Okay, Robin's leaving now, he was just testing the system...
llanddmyne: different floors?! Over my head, I guess
||||||||| 9:14 PM -- Robin left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
cease: did it pass?
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Merlyn', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:14 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Elayne: Seems to.
Merlyn: hey E, I should have a newer version of that robot game soon.
Elayne: Now, whether or not you can use his keyboard, that's a different matter...
Elayne: It's one o' them Mac keyboards. But he says he'll have it polished specially...
||||||||| stephenfosterKlok sneaks in around 9:15 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last week's "unpleasant incident."
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Batman', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:15 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...

Elayne: Hey SFK, Bats!
Batman: Where the hell did Robin go!
Bambi: hey Klok
Bambi: hey Merlyn
stephenfosterKlok: rats!
Bambi: And is Robin now Batman?
stephenfosterKlok: hi everybody
Elayne: Oddly, Bats, that's the first time he's ever heard that... *sigh*
||||||||| Catherwood enters with llandgrabb close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 9:16 PM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the Aviary.
Elayne: Why is it never Maid Marion who comes in and asks that? :)
llandgrabb: hi klok
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Temporarily Tweeny County', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:17 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
stephenfosterKlok: related to "Made" Marion, the mob guy?
Temporarily Tweeny County: I'm back. And I'm bootiful....
Bambi: that's so funny E and Robin/Batman LOL
Elayne: That's another story, Klok. A second story, you might say.
llandgrabb: the maid in the shade
stephenfosterKlok: what am I, a second story man?
Elayne: The silly part of it all is, Robin's a much better punster than I am, but his chat skills are very rusty so that's why he exited...
Bambi: well, don't feel bad Klok ... I am a second story woman LOL
Bambi: that's where my office is anyway
Elayne: We're on the second floor as well, and we just met our new downstairs neighbor-to-be last night.
stephenfosterKlok: the Doublemint deduction; two deductions in one house!
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'the penguin', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:19 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
stephenfosterKlok: we're being themed to death tonite...
the penguin: Robin is tied to the train tracks ha ha ha ha
Bambi: well, all he'd need to do is type ... occasionally so he doesn't fade ... tell'em to come back
Temporarily Tweeny County: We're going to have quite a cast here tonight...
Bambi: or at least ask ;-)
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'llandfyll', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:20 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Elayne: Maybe if they're good we can all sign the cast.
stephenfosterKlok: yep, I'm mixing up the Plaster of Paris as I type
cease: is anyone listening to janeane? talk about crush that dwarf
Elayne: Llan, slow down, that's like 6 aliases now or something, isn't it? :)
stephenfosterKlok: he's been aliasated
Elayne: No Cat, I'm listening to CNI, I can't do that and Air America.
stephenfosterKlok is listening to FST
llandfyll: I'll stick with this for now
Elayne: Oh, by the way, Air America is looking for an exec assistant to the president, so I sent 'em my resume. Haven't heard from 'em yet, I have a feeling they can't afford me.
Bambi: shame Charles Throat isn't here ... we got the TrussCDs in and Clem is playing one of them Hour Hour right now for those who may not know.
stephenfosterKlok: ough button along, guys
stephenfosterKlok: alone...
cease: her dwarf story is funny and oddly touching
llandfyll: Both my front tires went flat on the same day. Can you imagine? The day before yesterday. That led to all kinds of trouble.
Bambi: good luck with that E!
cease: you would be perfect, el
llandfyll: I replaced one with a donut tire but when the other one went down I had to call AAA
Elayne: Re: the Hour Hour on CNI, Robin wants to point out pedantically that the plural of "mongoose" is still "mongooses."
Temporarily Tweeny County: Two tired flats on the same day. What are the odds?
stephenfosterKlok has two donut tires
Elayne: I told him it was kind of pointless to talk to a recording from 30 years ago but there you are...
Bambi: wow...isn't that odd for both front tires to go flat at the same time? what's the odds of that happening ... as Spock says, "I've never calculated the odds, Capt."
Temporarily Tweeny County: Saw a flock of mongeese the other day.
Elayne: It really would be a dream job, Cat, but I'm not counting on it.
llandfyll: But...I'm not flat. Look!
stephenfosterKlok: is he pulling that "beyond Einstein" stuff on you again, E?
Elayne: I thought the plural of mongoose was duogoose, or trigoose or something...
llandfyll: The odds are a little better when you take a long trip
stephenfosterKlok: Ilan -- was there a cause, or did they just mysteriously go flatulent?
Bambi: ah, gee Robin ... it isn't mongeese? lol
Temporarily Tweeny County: I tried a goose but he was found innocent.
Elayne: Robin's tried to goose me a few times.
llandfyll: No, a mongoose is the rainy season in the tropics
Temporarily Tweeny County: Get that cold hook out of there!
Bambi: ah, of course
Temporarily Tweeny County: Here comes old One Eye...
Bambi: E...as it should be ;-)
||||||||| It's 9:30 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:

Bambi: but no plague...with all those diseases...no plague...

Temporarily Tweeny County: I like my lunch fully-clothed, thatnk you...
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Asssk_ing', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:33 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...

llandfyll: Oh, yes and now the end of the tire story. An acquaintance of mine sold me a spare donut tire just a couple of hours ago, almost as an afterthought. I've got it very near me right now and that means I am back on the road tomorrow after he picked me up hitchhiking.

Bunnyboy: Sorry, don't know how to put an umlaut over the A in LATHER (pronounced "leather")
Dave: just tuned in the bird
Dexter Cardinal Fong: Whoa! 4 at a blow.....
PPoop: zappa with jean-luc ponti is fun

Dave: LL Yellow Shark, it was in the middle of it, Uncle Meat area
Bambi_: brb
Dave: cool Cat
Bunnyboy: 200 MOTELS is overdue for a DVD restoration. And now that Sony has engulfed MGM, well...
cease: i find it hard to believe that i'm the only person who taped firesign off the radio in those days
PPoop: uncle meat area? tastes like pork
cease: millions of people in la with tape recorders, fond of the show. and i have the only tape? that doesnt make sense
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Bambi', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 10:13 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
llandfyll: well I didnt even know about them in those days
Bambi: ah much better
cease: i was there before they were, llan
Dave: there's probably more Cat they're just hiding in hiding
PPoop: it was the 60s and 70s, that explains it
llandfyll: I actually borrowed Yellow Shark from a public library not long ago because there was nothing much else
Bunnyboy: cease: Yeah, FST's commercial radio daze were before my cognizant time, as well.
PPoop: they smoked the 8-track after taping
Asssk_ing: ummmm toxic man
PPoop: probably less toxic than some of the weed I had
ah,clem: some of their greatest work, IMHO
Bunnyboy: Sad but true, there are plenty of professional grade magnetic tapes that are moldering away...
Dexter Cardinal Fong: Cat: Is this the Hour Hour with "Breast of Firesign"?
Bambi: these are great pieces
||||||||| "10:16 PM? 10:16 PM!!" says Catherwood, "stephenfosterKlok should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as stephenfosterKlok enters and sits on the couch.
PPoop: they are fantastic
llandfyll: Is that breaded and deep fried, dex?
PPoop: easter already? klok is risen

Bunnyboy: They actually had to bake the audio tape masters for DAS BOOT, to prepare them for digital restoration.
stephenfosterKlok: hang on, I'll be back
Dexter Cardinal Fong: hang on to what?
PPoop: no no, that is worse
Asssk_ing: you smell that
Bunnyboy: And I think they did something similar in remastering THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT.
cease: when austin was on chat one time, he remarked that he does not have fond memories of this show.
cease: so its kinda hard to ask him, or the other lads about it
Dexter Cardinal Fong: This specific one, Cat..or the Hour Hours in general
PPoop: probably a lot of work to make it look so easy
Asssk_ing: that 8 track had mustard on it
Bambi: these pieces were very helpful ltoday in more ways than normal. :-)
stephenfosterKlok: better
stephenfosterKlok: hmmm

Bambi: yeah... failed again PPoop lol
Bunnyboy: I intend to catch up on my Errol Flynn experience in the near future. I snagged copies of CAPTAIN BLOOD and THE SEA HAWK.
Dave: I told him it was the "regular crowd" so to the irregular crowd he says "eat more fiber"
stephenfosterKlok: our access to NOAA? you mean weather?
Bunnyboy: I've had ROBIN HOOD for the past several months. I have never actually sat through a Flynn feature.

Sir Choice Hotel: is firesign planning a tour? group reservations are at 18005444444
stephenfosterKlok: I heard one of her fellow signers, Camille, doing a bossa nova version of "The Guns of Brixton" today. Straaaaange!

cease: throw another cheeselog on the firesign
llanwydd: That's not even my own joke
Bunnyboy: Cheese food, per USDA regs, has to have 40-something percent actual cheese. The rest is anybody's guess. Or...everybody's eggs.
Bunnyboy chirps
stephenfosterKlok: hey, don
Bambi: hey Donk7
PPoop: parmesan?

Bambi: yes, Cat ... this is wonderful!
Bunnyboy: feta is fetid. Bleah.

Bunnyboy: True confession: I'm not a fan of cheese.
Bambi: don't care for it either ... hey ... wait .. blue cheese
PPoop: cruel to only give me one chance to hear what they say
Bunnyboy: No, there's always Ariana Huffington.
Dexter Cardinal Fong: UMM>>>Goganzola...Roqueforte....
llanwydd: I like feta in a greek salad but not with much else
Bunnyboy: Actually, Ariana was pretty damn funny on Bill Maher's show, a couple of weeks ago.
Bambi: ah, love cheese ... but just only certain ones
Donk7: hmm ariana huffington?
Dexter Cardinal Fong: funny?
PPoop: feta is cottage cheese with a vengence

Bunnyboy ponders ironically
Dexter Cardinal Fong: Limbaugher...not to my taste

PPoop: limbaugher cheese, super on a chili dog

Bunnyboy: If there's anything yankier than real cheese, it's Soy Cheese.
stephenfosterKlok: wasn't he amelia's husband
Bambi: tofu...really...have never been able to eat that
Dexter Cardinal Fong: Limbuagher Cheese, made with ilicitly purchased Vicodin
Bunnyboy: Tofu, fine. Extra-cultured soy, yutz.
Donk7: fresh mozzerella, yum hard to find in most areas but worth the look
Dexter Cardinal Fong: Eat a slice, nod out, regurgitate
Bambi: I'm laughing at your jokes llanwydd :-)
PPoop: tofu is plastic, velveeta is mothers milk compared to that
llanwydd: tofu tastes like a mouthful of nothing
cease: bambi, you gotta know what to do with it. it doesnt exist in a vaccum
Bunnyboy: No, really, I am hungry. So...Let's EAT!
PPoop: you can buy mothers milk on the internet, google it

Bambi: do I have to try the prairie oysters Dex ? that sounds bad. ;-)
Dexter Cardinal Fong: Bambi: In life, you should always try everything once
Bambi: overcultured pearls of wisdom maybe huh?
Dexter Cardinal Fong: you prolly won't get another chance
llanwydd: I have to admit I don't get the prairie oyster joke
cease: what are all these mexican breasts doing here?
Dexter Cardinal Fong: llan: prarie oysters are bull testicles

Donk7: google it
Dexter Cardinal Fong: If you google it, milk will be emitted

Dexter Cardinal Fong: egloved? Always wear your E-glove when you swim in E-Bay
Bambi: now that just figures .... lol

PPoop: bilbo, what happened to your nose?
llanwydd: It's at the end of "Return" isn't it, cat?
Dexter Cardinal Fong: and several typos too hold your interest

Donk7: if you are really serious about literature you need to read don marquis, terry southern, or of course jean shepherd, that's litterature
llanwydd: conversations are running strangely together here. Confusing
Bambi: you can see a picture of our ornamental cherry blossoms here http://www.bambismusings.blogspot.com/

Dexter Cardinal Fong: Choice: That whirlpool room is for suckers

Donk7: silly
PPoop: ok ok, I will find and try war and peace, and the appendix
llanwydd: So you've been reading lotr for 40 years, Cat. If I reread anything it is likely to be all the Sherlock Holmes stories.

PPoop: he did, I take pictures of my thumb
cease: does the encyclopedia answer, donk?
Bambi: I love to reread a book I've enjoyed
stephenfosterKlok struggles as his addled brain works to parse Cat's long sentence...

stephenfosterKlok: winamp + streamripper plug-in. like a charm, esp. at 16 khz
cease: speaking of drugs, i think that pot did or continues to do the firesign a world of good. it appears that coke did them some harm.
Dexter Cardinal Fong: Cats a big PKD fan
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'T', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 11:12 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...

Dexter Cardinal Fong: Cat: My son has a copy, got it from library I believe
PPoop: the moon is not rising, the horizon is lowering lol
cease: i learned more about death from that book than from any book ive ever read, or even any expereince
stephenfosterKlok: if the moon is not rising, it must be unleavened
Donk7: pretty much think all the full moon stuff is crap, but that's just me
Bambi: I read I, Robot (Asimov's original) and enjoyed it once I got past certain parts ... enjoyed the new movie too with Will Smith ... it's different but on the same premise ... was fun.
Dexter Cardinal Fong: uh oh! Clem's into some kinda voodoo stuff

Dexter Cardinal Fong: Rye sing with the moon, way up in the midnight sky
T: WPKN played me, ONCE.
cease: who are you, t?
Donk7: what did they play?
llanwydd: Speaking of the moon, here's a nagging question. Everyone can see that craters on the moon. But has anyone seen one of the craters being formed?
stephenfosterKlok: his books stand on their own, though, despite his personal history and life (although the ex-wives tend to leak in there a lot ;-)

T: But there are LOTS of public domain hymns and The Babble, it's all PD.
