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 May 26, 2005 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Dave inside, makes a note of the time (7:15 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Dave: hi folks who read this, just wanted to let you all know that I won't be on tonight most likely, if I do it will be probably at midnight eastern time, I graduated from high school (a distant memory to many of you) today, so we're going out to dinner, but I really hope everyone is well, special prayers to Lili and Ken, but all in here are great people if just slightly insane, I will attempt to come on and say a brief hello but ifI don't, then have fun chatting and I will see all next week, layter
||||||||| "Hey Dave!" ... Dave turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 7:18 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...
||||||||| Catherwood stomps in at 8:44 PM, dragging       TOR       by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this idiot?"
||||||||| It's 9:00 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
|||||||||       TOR       - dead from the yaws
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, May 26, 2005 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!" -- then he looks around at the empty room, looks at his watch, and mumbles "...am I early?"
||||||||| Catherwood sneaks into the room, and intones "Announcing 'elton bob', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:14 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the Aviary...
elton bob: TGIT
elton bob: anabodda heahhh?
||||||||| 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 klokwkNor'easter disembarks at 9:17 PM.
klokwkNor'easter: it's quiet...too quiet
||||||||| klokwkNor'easter leaves to catch the 9:17 PM train to Manchester.
elton bob: no longah
||||||||| Outside, the 9:18 PM uptown bus from Connecticut pulls away, leaving klokwkNor'easter coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
||||||||| "Hey klokwkNor'easter!" ... klokwkNor'easter turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 9:18 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'klokwkNor'easter', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:18 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
klokwkNor'easter: whew, this is hard work
klokwkNor'easter: more lines on screen now
elton bob: ...like to know where the river boat sails tonight...
elton bob: I'm llanwydd but I'm listening to "Tumbleweed Connection" so I chose this appropriate moniker.
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle in through the front door at 9:20 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: I'm not a drinkin' man on duty Mr. Cox. I swear to hell I saw it...
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: I'm not a drinkin' man on duty Mr. Cox. I swear to hell I saw it...
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Double Trouble!
elton bob: I see what you mean by more lines on the screen klok
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Elton rocks. Love lies/Funeral.
elton bob: took myself a bluuuuuuuuuuuuue canoe
klokwkNor'easter bumped the setting to 25 lines after he logged out
klokwkNor'easter: logged back in, "name taken". cancel? yes. oops. too late
klokwkNor'easter: log in again -- back to default 10 lines. exit again and change it back to 25
klokwkNor'easter: am i here on the worng nite? no CNI? no chatters?
elton bob: I'm not having any trouble klok
elton bob: It IS very strange that there's no one else here yet
klokwkNor'easter: no, it's just the way you set up the session before logging in. i didn't
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: SRV's band. They still make great music.
klokwkNor'easter: if I change it in the session, a control panel comes up that does not go away
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: You're getting sleeepy, windoze.
klokwkNor'easter: if I log out and change it and log in again, the "name taken" dialog, if you hit 'cancel', resets the session settings to default
klokwkNor'easter: merlyn, it's a bug! ;-)
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in and snorts derisively "Presenting 'doctec', just granted probation at 9:26 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
klokwkNor'easter: hi DT!
elton bob: What's SRV, tween?
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: But that one of the bugs!
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Yo doc...
doctec: hi guys - i'm early, in part because i can't stay long
elton bob: hey doc
klokwkNor'easter: how's Lili, Doc?

Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Like me to send an MP3?
klokwkNor'easter: they doin' the works?
elton bob: aha
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: How's Lili faring?
doctec: she got all marked up by the plastic surgeon who'll be doing the reconstruction surgery after her mastectomy - it's a tag team op
elton bob: I'm not a great Vaughn fan, thanks
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Yikes. Best to her and hers...
doctec: thanks. she'll be recuperating at the hospital for 5 days
klokwkNor'easter: definitely, our hopes and prayers go with her
||||||||| "9:30 PM? 9:30 PM!!" says Catherwood, "llanwydd should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as llanwydd enters and sits in the comfy chair.
doctec: i've been furiously loading up her new ipod (given to her by me and others on her birthday 5/15) so she won't go crazy having to watch commercial television
||||||||| 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 Mr. Motion disembarks at 9:30 PM.
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Hey LL...
doctec: hi lland
Mr. Motion: G'day Y'all
llanwydd: evenin folks
Mr. Motion: Where's Ah Clem?
doctec: and i'll be loading itunes daily with her fave kcrw feeds which i will be capturing and editing daily so i can download them to her ipod each evening during visiting hours
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: An object in motion will stay in motion unless General Motors stock drops.
llanwydd: I've been making homemade embibements. I just tapped a gallon of mead
klokwkNor'easter: dunno, they may have dialing problems if they're getting the storm we are
llanwydd: finished off my sangria last week
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Really, Doc, hope for a very quick recovery indeed.
Mr. Motion: Bummer a bunch of nerds on there and it sucks !
klokwkNor'easter: DT - kcrw is archiving MBE for 24 hours, which should ease your task, besides the three daily repeats
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: You lost your gria?
doctec: anyway we are about to head out for a light nosh, after which we will be getting to bed early since she needs to be at the hospital at 6am. thanks for the kind wishes sherriff, klok & all
llanwydd: the mead has a good enough kick but it's too sweet
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Take care, Doc.
llanwydd: yeah now I'm sans gria
klokwkNor'easter: hi & best wishes to Lili!
doctec: klok: i tried to access the MBE archive yesterday, it's a real plaer feed and i got an error: "dns server does not exist." annoying to say the least
klokwkNor'easter: haven't tried it myself, DT
klokwkNor'easter: i figured it wouldn't be MP3
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Let's play "Name The Domains".
doctec: good thing i have adobe audition (formerly known as cool edit) so i can capture the feeds live from 12 to 3 each day
||||||||| cease tiptoes in around 9:35 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last night's "unpleasant incident."
llanwydd: ok. Bill, Fred, Tony, Barbara, Corky,
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: I've got CNI up via MP3.
klokwkNor'easter: DT - I use Winamp + Streamripper plug-in, does a fair job
doctec: i've filled her 20 gig ipod about halfway with an amazingly huge selection of her face cds
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Yo cat...
llanwydd: my domain is Jim
cease: i was just uploading a bunch of pix to my blog, which of course you're all reading at www.seemrealland.blogspot.com
klokwkNor'easter: The 128 kbps KCRW feed generates gawdawful big files for 3 hours, though
doctec: klok: i was thinking of doing that, only annoyance is that if i go that route i get the news at the top of the hour, which i don't want - but i may try it tomorrow on her desktop pc just to see what i get
cease: i was hunting flowers in stanley park and suddenly came upon a big heron
klokwkNor'easter: hey cat, not reading at the moment, but will get on it shortly
cease: just sitting on a log a few feet from me.
llanwydd: big heroin. Cat, I never knew
doctec: klok: yes they are big files - but i have a 250 gig hard drive that's only about 1/2 to 2/3 full so i have plenty of room for them
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: That's another fine mess you've gotten us into...
cease: i guess there are no small herons
klokwkNor'easter: DT - thanks to Roto I use freeware MP3 Direct Cut editor to cut and splice the feed, works nicely
Mr. Motion: Heron good in a white wine sauce!
cease: normally birds fly away as soon as you get anywhere near them. this one just sat there
doctec: klok: i'll have to look into that editor - thanx for the tip
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: And far away in remote ding dung provence...
llanwydd: I'm drinking a wine sauce right now
klokwkNor'easter: Of course I rarely do more than a few minutes of KCRW, but I use streamripper on slower stuff (16 kbps) all the time, for hours, and post-edit
cease: how is lili, doc?
llanwydd: I wonder if I ought to make a dessert out of it instead of drink it
Mr. Motion: Mead pie heap good Kemosabe!
doctec: cat: she's going in for the mastectomy/reconstruction op tomorrow - will be in the op room 5 hrs followed by recuperation at the hospital thru next tues
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: No true Mississippi cowhard would leave his wine celler undefended in such a dangerous time!
llanwydd: It's almost as bad as port
cease: all the best to her, of course
llanwydd: but the alcohol content came out pretty good
doctec: i have loaded her new ipod with tons of her fave cds and will be dumping mp3s of her fave kcrw feeds each day
||||||||| It's 9:40 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:

doctec: i have to say, apple really did a great job on the design and feature set implementation for the ipod - it's a great device
||||||||| Catherwood walks up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'Elayne', just granted probation at 9:41 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
llanwydd: hi E
doctec: sherriff: wow, haven't heard any of that jazz/rock fusion stuff in a long time
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Yo E...
Elayne: Evenin' all. Didn't think I'd see Jim and Fran here, as Fran's father just passed on.
||||||||| Catherwood sneaks into the room, and intones "Announcing 'ah,clem', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:41 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the Aviary...
llanwydd: I'm still listening to Tumbleweed Connection
Elayne: She wrote a lovely remembrance of him on her blog today.

Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Two of the favorite cars I've owned: El Camino - built in MX, Pontiac STE - built in Toronto. Go figure.
klokwkNor'easter: NYT story I skipped today -- the world's largest mall is now in China
Bunnyboy: They got houses 'n everything!

principalP: never heard of marijuana cheese
||||||||| 11:20 PM: Jean Clavier jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past hour!"
Bunnyboy: That's right. We still manufacture the boats to bring that cheap crap in here.
klokwkNor'easter: sure Poop -- wars, financial scandal, empty threats, deception, blackmail, and strong-arming of weak countries
Jean Clavier: Bonjour!
Dr. Headphones: jp! you of the french aliases

Jean Clavier: No chicken bones, Cat...dangerous!
Dr. Headphones: when i finally get a keyboard/piano of my own, will buy both books of the WTC and learn them all
Jean Clavier: Probably more like even-tempered.
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: New England Digital. Nothin' like it.
klokwkNor'easter: all service jobs are now Halliburton jobs, to a first approximation
Jean Clavier: Just got home from an r&b gig...
Bunnyboy: Yassir Jarlsberg.
principalP: bad bach down down

klokwkNor'easter: Frist not approximate! Frist make rule or opponents go in jail!
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Yes - Love Will Find A Way geeeze
Dr. Headphones: jc: i have strange electronic piece at home with even temperment instead of the "normal" scale. sounds really weird when they are in ratios instead of standard logarithmic steps
Jean Clavier: Interesting, Ken...I recommend a listen to Wendy Carlos' Beauty In The Beast for odd tunings
principalP: get a copy of the Balkan hot step dr H
klokwkNor'easter: good log function is hard, electronically, at least analog. digital is getting there now, if you don't need RF rates.
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: What synth, Ken? Prophet will do that, as will DX 7 II.
Dr. Headphones: wendy or walter? i keep on getting them confused.....
klokwkNor'easter: depends on the year, Ken
Jean Clavier: One in the same, Ken
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Walter, this is Walter...
Dr. Headphones: i need to buy CD of his(her?) first, i played the LP until it's unlistenable
Bunnyboy: Head: Walter's been gone for over 30 years. Only Wendy remains.
Jean Clavier: Walter got cut off years ago...
Dr. Headphones: tween: not sure, it came on sampler CD i bought
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Your life.
principalP: is that cronk tight?
Bunnyboy: While we're on the subject...
Bunnyboy: http://www.wendycarlos.com/
Dr. Headphones: the brandenburg concerto on that first one was simply magnificent. and the scarlatti was non pareil
Jean Clavier: Which subject is that, Bunny
Jean Clavier: Good call...I was gonna do that.
cease: how's the old kazoo?
Dr. Headphones: god, but she's ugly
Bunnyboy: Why, Wendy Carlos, of course. There are some nifty MIDI files at her site.
Jean Clavier: Classic synth album reissued recently on CD - "Cosmic Furnace" by Roger Powell
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Just ordered a copy of TV or Not TV. Pretty sure these guys are going down through history like Fields and Marx Bros.
cease: i hope so, sheriff
Bunnyboy: Head: But she talented. And surely that counts for something.
Jean Clavier: Yes, you must have all FST & related discs...(he said trying to hypnotize)
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Almost 3 weeks w/o TV (by choice). Sugestion for Rev. Barnstormer. "The Daily Affirmation".
cease: i dont think that's a finite commodity, jean
Dr. Headphones: bun: yes, i agree. soundtrack to "clockwork orange" was great even if movie was terrible (my opinion)
cease: the book was better
Jean Clavier: Note the new Carlos discs with rare film cues coming out soon (check the website)
principalP: terrible, for the year it was made? fiddlesticks
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Heros, or Hopheads?
cease: hopis
Jean Clavier: Cat, I hope that you are correct in that assumption - there surely must be more in the pipeline
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Arcosanti's coming along pretty well.
Bunnyboy: Tween: Yes, ain't life without TV grand? I do that every once in a great while.
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Needs to be maellable, like Habitat in Montreal.
cease: my point is no one knows how much they recorded. i seem to be one of few who taped a few of their old radio shows but there must be sound checks of them and all the live stuff they did. who knows how many discs that could be-
Bunnyboy: Holy crap! Take a look at Wendy's new rig!
Bunnyboy: http://www.wendycarlos.com/wurlynew/wafinal.JPG

Dr. Headphones: http://www.guardian.co.uk/germany/article/0,2763,1451509,00.html
cease: what are all these conquistadors doing here?
principalP: conquisting
Jean Clavier: They're probably looking for someplace to unwind...
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Ben to Yucatan. Swam at the national aquarium (Xel Ha - ha ha ha).

Jean Clavier: Don Quixote...
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: All Hail Yucatan!
Dr. Headphones: sumbeach! a great keyboard setup fer shure

Bunnyboy: And when you think that the new rig is only slightly bigger than the original Moog monosynths Walter played...well!
Dr. Headphones: crap, it's 1130 in sector "N" and i have to make a pickup at 0700. g'nite all, see you again sometime, someplace
Jean Clavier: I wouldn't want to have to move that sumbeach (as you say), Ken

Jean Clavier: LOL, Cat
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Asia? In your wildest dreams...
Jean Clavier: http://www.asiaworld.org
Jean Clavier: Only time will tell, Tweeny
klokwkNor'easter: nite BB
Bunnyboy: I must confess, I never was a big Asia fan. They always seemed like slumming prog rockers, dragging through MTV in the 80s.
klokwkNor'easter was watching the news clips of Liverpool's return home...
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Society for General Systems Research. Managing Director. My Dad.
Jean Clavier: I like the records they did with Wetton - the more recent stuff leaves me cold.
Sheriff Lugar Tweenhandle: Brought me a copy from England.
