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 June 09, 2005 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| FIrebroiled tiptoes in around 8:33 AM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last month's "unpleasant incident."
FIrebroiled: Howdy... Dr. Headphones!!
||||||||| FIrebroiled says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, FIrebroiled exits at 8:34 AM.
||||||||| Catherwood walks up and announces "Presenting 'ah,clem', just granted probation at 7:56 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" more Danger, and more'
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 8 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| 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 Bambi disembarks at 8:05 PM.
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 8:05 PM and principalPoop steps out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
principalPoop: anybody want a grape?
Bambi: we are early?
principalPoop: my clock says after nine
Bambi: yes, I want a grape :-)

principalPoop: wine, welch's or seedless?
Bambi: seedless wine ;-)
principalPoop: ahhh sorry, out of boone's farm today

||||||||| Catherwood says "It's 8:08 PM, precisely!"
Bambi: LOL
principalPoop: somebody is off by an hour, did the time change?
Bambi: catherwood says it's 8pm too
||||||||| Catherwood strides up to Bambi and asks "Something I can help with?"
principalPoop: you know boone's farm? ahh a misguided youth lol

Bambi: yep
principalPoop: I think we are all bozo's on this bus
principalPoop: I was concerned my batteries were worn out

Bambi: yes, on both sides ... it stinks all around
principalPoop: hot when I was there, west on 10, east on 40
Bambi: I thought there were no candidates in the last election!
TweenUs&Them&Us: Ann Richards isn't band, and one of the reasons I moved here, but of course I arrived just in time for W.
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood announces: "8:23 PM and late as usual, it's Dexter Fong, just back from Hellmouth."
TweenUs&Them&Us: And she isn't a band, either ;)
Dexter Fong: Hello Dear Friends
TweenUs&Them&Us: Yo Dex...
Dexter Fong: Hey Tweeny
principalPoop: bonsoir fong
Dexter Fong: Hi Bambi, pPm and clem
||||||||| Outside, the 8:24 PM uptown bus from Hellmouth pulls away, leaving klokwkHeatWave coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
||||||||| cease enters at 8:24 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and scurries off to the Chapeau Manger.

TweenUs&Them&Us: Wish we could post pictures in the chat.
Dexter Fong: Test
cease: this doesnt sound like firesign
Bambi: hi Cat and Klok
||||||||| Dexter Fong departs at 8:25 PM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
Bambi: hi ash
TweenUs&Them&Us: How long do we have, dex?
Bambi: Dex
||||||||| Catherwood leads Dexter Fong inside, makes a note of the time (8:25 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
cease: unless its from fools in space
Dexter Fong: Back
principalPoop: fong?
klokwkHeatWave: i agree, dex
||||||||| Around 8:25 PM, klokwkHeatWave walks off into the sunset...
principalPoop: hi cat, wild firesign
principalPoop: klok?
||||||||| Catherwood escorts klokwkHeatWave inside, makes a note of the time (8:26 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Dexter Fong: poop?
klokwkHeatWave: ah thas more likeit
Bambi: TX and WI are as far west as I've been so far

||||||||| Catherwood leads Dr.Benjamin into the room, accepts an I.O.U. as a gratuity, mumbles something about 8:28 PM, then departs.
Dr.Benjamin: I'm still here!
TweenUs&Them&Us: have you got something for my cough?
klokwkHeatWave: 'lo doc
principalPoop: I liked the mesas in new mexico, or was it arizona, maybe texas
Dr.Benjamin: 25 cents
klokwkHeatWave: here's a Smith Bros, Tween
principalPoop: 25 cents is not much
Elayne: Evenin' all!
Dr.Benjamin: not much of a cough, either!
klokwkHeatWave: mesas were invented in Texas, but I think Motorola really cleaned up on the ones they made in Phoenix
Bambi: hi DrB
TweenUs&Them&Us: Visited Arcosanti in the high desert of AZ a couple of times. Work camp in '74. Neat territory, northern NM & AZ.
Dr.Benjamin: Motorola, Tx!

TweenUs&Them&Us: How about the 7 cities of gold?
klokwkHeatWave: it's near Paris, isn't it?
klokwkHeatWave: 'lo Clem
Elayne: Evenin' Jim!
principalPoop: one pretzel away from cheney lordy
Dr.Benjamin: Paris, Tx.....
TweenUs&Them&Us: Unfortunately Motorola has outsourced like everybody else.

Dr.Benjamin: outsourced at the source!
Dr.Benjamin: Uncanny!
klokwkHeatWave: well, outsourced and spun out
principalPoop: arcosanti, I thought that was the tanned god in atlas shrugged
cease: yeah this is the xm show
Bambi: our daughter was stationed at White Sands once and near Phoenix (Luke maybe? can't remmber)
klokwkHeatWave: all the stuff that was left after their furnace shop shut down is now Freescale, whatever that is
TweenUs&Them&Us: Experimental community in the desert. Pretty cool. www.arcosanti.org
Dr.Benjamin: Freescale, Az.
principalPoop: white sands? the hotel in las vegas or miami?
Bambi: she took the early out though when they offered it
TweenUs&Them&Us: Probably working for SCALE...
Dr.Benjamin: white sans in the temple by the river moonlight.....

||||||||| Dr.Benjamin walks away to The Portrait Gallery.
TweenUs&Them&Us: Home of the Free Mexican Air Force.
Bambi: Hi Clem!
principalPoop: raymond chandler, some mystery here
||||||||| Dr.Benjamin walks in and says "It's 8:33 PM, has anybody seen Nancy?"
klokwkHeatWave: so much for the portrait gallery, eh DB?
TweenUs&Them&Us: Helppp meeeee Spooock...
principalPoop: ann richard benjamin
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 8:34 PM and Asssk_and steps out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
klokwkHeatWave: (they've got everybody's picture)
Bambi: hey did you see any good portraits in there Dr. B?
Asssk_and: ye shall receive

Bambi: LOL

TweenUs&Them&Us: Lokk at this grape I brought back from Grease!
||||||||| Catherwood sneaks into the room, and announces "Announcing 'Dr.Benjamin', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 8:36 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
cease: el, i was unable to post pix with buzznet either. i'll email you about my trials later
principalPoop: that is scientologist grape from john revolta
Bambi: he's trying to cool down from this heat wave ... like the rest of us LOL
klokwkHeatWave: wanna nother beer, Clem?
ah,clem: jimmy is very warm, But think he will survive`
||||||||| Dr.Benjamin leaves to catch the 8:36 PM train to Funfun Town.
Elayne: Cat, I'm not sure how I can help at this point. Maybe it's your computer.
Elayne: Can you upload to Buzznet, and you just can't post from there to your blog?
principalPoop: think cool thoughts, listen to that cool nick danger jazz
ah,clem: mmmm beer
cease: i'll tell you what i did incase you can spot what i did wrong, el. i can also try the mac. nice having 2 systems now.
klokwkHeatWave: screw thoughts, Poop, somebody turn off the *&#^ heat!!!!!
TweenUs&Them&Us: Sounds like the guys are pretty busy these days with live gigs.
Elayne: Okay, go ahead Cat.
cease: i'm listening to the firesigns on the dell and janaeane and company on the mac now
cease: also watching several newses on tv
principalPoop: w is pres, this is hell, what do you expect?
cease: and chatting with y'all.
cease: and i haven't even gotten into the drugs yet.
TweenUs&Them&Us: Trying out OS X/Firefox tonight myself.
klokwkHeatWave: hey cat, why not try to do more than one thing at once? you'll get plenty extra done!
klokwkHeatWave: beginning of the end for your Mac, eh Tween? ;-)
cease: the hard thing for me to do is only one thing at once
Bambi: do you have space on your website seemreel to put your pics Cat? I did that when I was using blogger ... just linked pics to my site.
TweenUs&Them&Us: At least it doesn't crash. Love the UNIX kernal.
cease: doc is in charge of my websites, bambi. i wish i were computer savy enough to do that
principalPoop: some roquefort
cease: i can't even solve simple problems like i must be having with blogger
TweenUs&Them&Us: Apple switching to Intel. Will wonders never cease.
Bambi: ah, ok
cease: i'm just back from the annual vancouver garden show with tons o' great images of flowers
principalPoop: will cease never wonder?
Asssk_and: it is simply a ploy to boost sales
cease: i wonder
TweenUs&Them&Us: So how's BC faring these days?
Bambi: cool!
Asssk_and: a good ploy none the less
klokwkHeatWave: no, it's probably Intel offering Jobs a ton of money -- otherwise they'd go AMD
cease: as soon as i can start posting pix to the blog again, you'll see them
TweenUs&Them&Us: Yeah, but the dual-core chip may be the reason, asssk.
Elayne: I bet BC is a heck of a lot cooler than NYC...
Asssk_and: been waiting to see when i could have a mac lol
cease: and speaking of the blog, i want to comment on that Bozos article that appeared on the web yesterday
Elayne: So Cat, tell me and Bambi what the problem is, I'll bet she can help!
Asssk_and: true
cease: have any of you read it? its somewhat thought provoking.
principalPoop: commercials in the skit, that is new age
klokwkHeatWave: what Bozos article? (kwd rushes to the newsgroup link...)
Elayne: I just read about it in my home email, I hadn't checked it in a few days.
principalPoop: give us a link cease
Elayne: But as to the article itself, I don't have time I'm afraid...
cease: yes, el. it was supposed to be 20C today, which is warm, but thankfully it wasnt as i had to shlep heavy camera around the garden show all afternoon and apprecaited the lack of heat
cease: http://www.descope.com/index2.html
principalPoop: 30+ here
TweenUs&Them&Us: What's 20C in farenheit, cease?
cease: i think the site is called descope. the guy knows his firesign quite well
Bambi: yep ... we might be able to do that between us Elayne ... you've been on blogger alot longer though than I was before I got too frustrated and moved it to WordPress on my website LOL
klokwkHeatWave: awfully academic-sounding
cease: i thought it would be, klok, but it wasnt.
Bambi: blogger outages were driving me nuts
cease: in the 70s i think
klokwkHeatWave: 25C is room temperature for testing electronics
cease: one of our local tv stations is having a series about the new world's fair in nagoya, japan
Elayne: Blogger's pretty good for people with basic tech knowledge, Fran. And I'm patient enough to wait out their little hiccups.
klokwkHeatWave: but it's a rather warm room...
Bambi: yes, it's quite nice and easy to use for sure
Bambi: just wish they were more reliable is all
cease: bozos is course from assorted world's fairs
TweenUs&Them&Us: They're doing world's fairs again? Cool...
cease: this one looks good, at least on tv
Dexter Fong: Test
klokwkHeatWave: let's do the world's fair again?
principalPoop: fong passed one
klokwkHeatWave: LOL
Dexter Fong: Make up
cease: as soon as i heard bozos (oddly, in japan) i flashed on the new york worlds fair
klokwkHeatWave: pop
klokwkHeatWave always thought along disneyland/tomorrowland himself
TweenUs&Them&Us: A fare for all, and no fair to anybody!
klokwkHeatWave: (having never set foot in a disney commercial attraction)
cease: both, klok
cease: a number of the paviillions of the ny fair went to disneyland
klokwkHeatWave: two of me?
Elayne: I remember David O saying how taken he's always been with the '39 NY World's Fair. I've always found stories of that fair to be very cool as well.
principalPoop: i have seen disneyland and disneyworld, resistance is futile
klokwkHeatWave: wow, you mean like a transporter, Cat? neat
Elayne: I can't remember, is the parachute jump from '39 or '64/65? That's now an empty husk sitting on Coney Island.
cease: ossman is Way into world's fairs.
klokwkHeatWave: Cat - is that like the thing in Escher, Godel, Bach where it's stated that all the Escher pictures connect through the back?
Dexter Fong: Elayne, neither..Jump is quite old older than 1939
cease: probably took the A trane, klok. got off at their F stop
cease: i have that book, klok.
Elayne: The one in Coney Island, Dex? I'm pretty sure that's a transport from one of the NY World's Fairs.
principalPoop: I had that book
TweenUs&Them&Us: F stop Fitzgerald?
Dexter Fong: E: If so, then definitely not 1965 Fair
klokwkHeatWave: didn't the airlines complain about all the people going to california cheaply?
klokwkHeatWave: how did they get back?
TweenUs&Them&Us: I was at 65 & 67 in Montreal. Pretty nice for a kid, actually.
Elayne: Hmm, I think I'm going to look it up, Dex. :) BRB.
principalPoop: yeehaw
klokwkHeatWave: elayne doesn't have a tabbed browser?
Elayne: Dex, it was the '39 fair. http://bayridge.com/jump.htm
TweenUs&Them&Us: (Get the senator back on the bus...)
cease: expo 67 was my fave and i've been to 5
Elayne: Klok, I have one but I'm using IE tonight instead of Firefox.
Dexter Fong: Geronimo Elyane
klokwkHeatWave: wasn't that thing in MiB in Flushing a leftover?
cease: canibas casino? sounds like vancouver
principalPoop: canibas is illegal medicine again
Dexter Fong goes afk for a refill
Elayne: It's actually been declared a city landmark twice - fascinating...
TweenUs&Them&Us: Yeah, Klok, that was from '65.
cease: our mayor called for complete legalization yesterday
TweenUs&Them&Us: Canyoubus?
Elayne: And there's even a Trump involved in the parachute jump story...
klokwkHeatWave: really
cease: speakihng of spike, i just saw the peter sellers flick last night
TweenUs&Them&Us: It's really silly. All they're doing is making better Capones.
cease: the life and death of peter, which begins with an episode of the goons
klokwkHeatWave: any good, Cat?
cease: best flick i've seen in years
Elayne: Marijuana Capones? Nah, there isn't that much money in something people can grow themselves... all the new Capones are probably transacting in coke, or new Afghan heroin.
cease: go rent it immediately
principalPoop: I prefer being ignorant, duh
Elayne: Cat, this is the one with Geoffrey Rush?
cease: yep
TweenUs&Them&Us: Sure got quite in here...
Elayne: We saw it when it premiered on cable. It was interesting, but not something I'd want to watch again.
principalPoop: listening to nick, oh nicky
klokwkHeatWave: sure, all the BIG money being made in the US now is by selling its citizens down the river...
klokwkHeatWave: too quite
cease: i thought it was fantastic, el. at least in terms of movie making
Bambi: good ole Nicky :-)
TweenUs&Them&Us: Don't get me started on our liberation of Afghans & Iraqis.
Dexter Fong is a bit concerned re: the absence of Doc and Lili, and prolonged absence of Yamamoto
klokwkHeatWave wouldn't know good movie making, scenes, writing, camera work if it hit him in the face...
principalPoop: I gave my afghan blanket to goodwill in protest
TweenUs&Them&Us: The browser didn't recycle, Klok. Fixed it.
cease: indeed, yam
cease: i mean dex
cease: maybe yammy finally got a life
TweenUs&Them&Us: LOL, Cease!!
principalPoop: oh yammy, how I love yah
Elayne: I'll try to drop Doc a line if he doesn't show tonight. I'm sure Lili is still majorly in recovery.
Dexter Fong: Hope so, Cat..just not mine
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, June 09, 2005 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
principalPoop: ta-dahhh
Elayne: Good lord, he's slipped out of Daylight Savings Time...
klokwkHeatWave: doc promised an update last week
Dexter Fong: Catherwood you are so screwed
||||||||| Catherwood walks over to Dexter Fong and mumbles "Did you want something?"
Dexter Fong: Get out Catherwood!!!
||||||||| Catherwood gets out.
Elayne: Catherwood, come back!
||||||||| Catherwood walks up to Elayne and queries "Do you have something for me to do?"
principalPoop: it doesn't have a handle
Dexter Fong Fires 6 round from his twembling Wrebry into Catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood steps over to Dexter Fong and says "Did you want something?"
klokwkHeatWave: Catherwood, transmorgrify into a teapot in another dimension and stay there
||||||||| Catherwood steps up to klokwkHeatWave and queries "Someone mention my name?"
cease: here, have one of mine
klokwkHeatWave: webley
klokwkHeatWave: (except in Asia)
Dexter Fong: Webley Webster a Bob & Ray character
principalPoop: is a weblog written by a webley?
Elayne: I think I'm going to turn in. Want to get more comics read, I'm not nearly through yet...
Elayne: Next week, all!
cease: talk to you later, el
Dexter Fong: Night Elayne
||||||||| At 9:04 PM, Elayne rushes out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
principalPoop: I saw colin powell on the daily show last night,
Dexter Fong: Cat: I sent you a private msge
Bambi: night Elayne!

Dexter Fong: Later Tweeny
Bambi: ok Tweeny
||||||||| "9:05 PM? 9:05 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Dave should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Dave enters and sits in the comfy chair.
Bambi: have fun
Dexter Fong: Hey Dave

Dave : hey I just got yelled at for cell phone usage! a long call to a friend apparently is a bad thing, it was 11 at night too, god I'm angry right now, sorry guys, but on the up-side I get to register for classes soon, how is everyone?
cease: about cassettes, dex? yes, very interesting.
||||||||| Catherwood says "9:06 PM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs ah,clem by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
klokwkHeatWave: nite E!
Dave : hey Cat you can type this week, you don't sound like you have a cold
||||||||| Catherwood sneaks into the room, and intones "Announcing 'ah,clem', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:07 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...

Dexter Fong: Dave: =))

||||||||| TweenUs&Them&Us - dead from The Plague
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...

principalPoop: scrimscrawl
Dexter Fong: Easy to do but not as efficient as Australianscrawl
principalPoop: johnny weismeller
cease: i think this is the first radio show they could say fuck on
Dexter Fong: and Jane (leer)

Dave : one of the classes is a class all on comedy, was thinking of asking if we could do some FST stuff, I want to register early so I can get in
Dexter Fong: Catherwood give Dave a special brownie
||||||||| Catherwood strides over to Dexter Fong and asks "Did you want me?"
Dexter Fong: Useless
principalPoop: give dave a special brownie catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood steps over to principalPoop and says "Would you like something?"
Dexter Fong: See?
principalPoop: sigh
cease: mel blanc, i thought you died
principalPoop: dungeons and dragqueens?

Dexter Fong: Also did dozens of radio shows
cease: indeed
klokwkHeatWave: ken has a load of paint!

Dexter Fong: An odd reaction...unless it was loaded and pointed at him
principalPoop: I guess they are rare
cease: obviously, klok. it's just the sort of info i'd want to ask other truckers in the city i'll be staying if any of the stops havea any problems
klokwkHeatWave: they copied the best stuff, Poop. Actually, I think the Webley has a resemblance to the late 19th century S&W

principalPoop: white sand dabs?
Bambi: but if you don't have all that in the house... ;-)
Dexter Fong: pP: No, they're kida grayish

cease: there are only a few million of us, bun. but back a few hundred years, probably so
principalPoop: how many flavors of life do they have now?
klokwkHeatWave: you don't want to see the prices on chopped dates and even raisins these days, Bambi
principalPoop: not sand colored sand dabs?
cease: i'm a sole man
Dexter Fong: Well if you had gray gsand
principalPoop: yes, and the lumps trying to gack you
klokwkHeatWave: Poop -- those are the ones that manage to evade being caught!
principalPoop: gandalf graysand, ahh ok
ConYam: I fix mine w/ apple juice
Dexter Fong: They're gray because you hunt them with dogs and dogs are color blind, hence they can't see 'em, that's why they's so 'spensive
principalPoop: ahh fast dabs, like the flash
Bunnyboy: Gosh, Firefox is a keen browser. I highly recommend it.
Dexter Fong: A good Sand Dab retriver is worth a fortune
klokwkHeatWave: how much flash can you get with a sand dab?

||||||||| Catherwood walks alongside ConYam and says "Someone mention my name?"
principalPoop: ahh ok, it used to be stamps and tramps and scamps
||||||||| Outside, the 10:04 PM uptown bus from Cherry Hill pulls away, leaving Dave coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.

principalPoop: are you kidding bunnyboy?
Dave : oh yeah, doesn't happen often, I usually just get shot down
klokwkHeatWave: the Buffalo Mint is open again? I always preferred them to Peppermint Patties and even Idaho Spuds
cease: do they have them in springfield?
Dexter Fong: Klok: Don't forget Dixie Chicen
Bunnyboy: PP: Kidding? About the nickel, or it's coolness?
principalPoop: raggae buffalo cowboys
Dexter Fong: Buffalo Springfield
principalPoop: about the nickle? they have issued a new buffalo nickle?
klokwkHeatWave prefers to have left the Dixie Chicken incident far, far behind him
Dave : I like some of Buffalo Springfield's stuff
principalPoop: ahh happy harry cox
Dexter Fong: Klok: I'm sorry but that's on your permanent record
klokwkHeatWave: sounds too much like CSN&Y for my money, Dave
klokwkHeatWave: she promised not to tell...
Bunnyboy: PP: Check it out at -
Dave : yeah but it was a start toward that sound klok
Bunnyboy: http://www.usmint.gov/mint_programs/index.cfm?flash=yes&action=nickel_series
Dexter Fong: Klok: uh ...it is CSN7Y =))
Bambi: brb ... spaghetti is calling

Bunnyboy: I was grabbing some change outta my pocket, when....whoa!
principalPoop: bon ap bambi, mmmmmmmmm
klokwkHeatWave: you know, they just can't do anything original. everyone has to see the same old retread stuff redone
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'DeepThroat', just granted probation at 10:10 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
Bunnyboy: I knew that they had the Lewis and Clark and Louisiana Purchase designs, but not this.
klokwkHeatWave: Susan B. Anthony? No, go away
klokwkHeatWave: Sacajaewa? No, go away
principalPoop: farout!
DeepThroat: Where is it 10:10 PM?
principalPoop: hello deepthroat, thanks so much again
Dexter Fong: Klok: Yeah!! Why can't we have like a chip in the nickel and every week you get a picture of whoever was hot
klokwkHeatWave: Buffalo on a nickel? SURE! Next, let's revive a 30 year-old film as a hit B'way musical!
Bunnyboy: How 'bout Robocop? I'd buy that for a dollar!
Dave : catherwood your clock is fucked

Dave : then you're on central time not eastern

||||||||| Catherwood hands principalPoop a new hip shiny buffalo nickle.
DeepThroat: give dave a senile old coot catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood strides alongside DeepThroat and asks "Would you like something?"
klokwkHeatWave: why can't we have a RECTANGULAR nickel with a keychain hole in it? Half plastic and with a screwdriver tip and a bit of an edge on one side for removing gum from the linoleum?
Dexter Fong: Catherwood give yourself a colonoscopy
||||||||| Catherwood strides over to Dexter Fong and mumbles "Did you want something?"
DeepThroat: give me a senile old coot catherwood

principalPoop: keep a civil shoe in your mouth cat
Bunnyboy: Dex: Oooh! I think Catherwood is getting flirty-flirty!
||||||||| Catherwood rushes up to Bunnyboy and mumbles "Do you have something for me to do?"
klokwkHeatWave thinks that nickels should be able to transmogrify (speled it rite this time) into a dime over 30 years if it lasts that long -- nickel self interest
DeepThroat: give me a phone to throw at ah,clem catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood gives DeepThroat a phone to throw at ah clem.
klokwkHeatWave: Clem should use a lower-bandwidth voice...
principalPoop: why are nickles bigger than pennies or dimes? I am so confused

Dexter Fong: The Dear Friends double album Dave

principalPoop: how can you be in two places at once when you are not any place at all
Bunnyboy: The Book of Punter
klokwkHeatWave: I liked the counterfeiter in England who was minting his own 1-£ coins. You really have to hate the government to lose money screwing them!
Dexter Fong: Catherwood tell Rochester to go away
||||||||| Catherwood steps over to Dexter Fong and says "Someone mention my name?"

klokwkHeatWave: what is this, the Dean Martin tech show?
Dexter Fong: and my Nickle would have "In Fong we Trust?" on it
cease: Dean Martin had a restaurant not far from my parents' house.
Bunnyboy: The only GOOD diction is a BENEdiction!
DeepThroat: Does it look okay on your browser?
cease: The food was suprisingly mediocre
Bunnyboy: Escusa...
cease: maybe you have to be drunk to enjoy it.
klokwkHeatWave: DT -- the face is kind of low-bandwidth. How many colors you using? I guess the Bandwidth Conservation Society would apporve, but...
DeepThroat: give me a dictionary to throw at Bunnyboy catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood gets DeepThroat a dictionary to throw at bunnyboy.
Bambi: good thing Clem has mplayer on that computer so he could play the mpegs and stream the audio :-)
||||||||| It's 10:20 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| ConYam - dead from jaundice
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Bunnyboy: RIP Anne Bancroft
principalPoop: seems ok from here deepthroat
DeepThroat: thnx ppoop
cease: did yam go back to the great yamond?
klokwkHeatWave: she did a lot of good stuff
principalPoop: I thought you intended him to be cartoonish lol
Dave : I just found out that the Van Morrison concert will last for Exactly an hour and a half, I paid 115 bucks for it, no sorry an hour and 15 minutes
ah,clem: were all mp3's Bam
DeepThroat: I just saw Anne Bancroft of the season 4 finale of Curb Your Enthusiasm a few days ago
Dexter Fong: Deep: Work jes' fine
DeepThroat: on the season 4 finale of Curb Your Enthusiasm
ah,clem: good night everyone, and thanks for listening. :)
cease: is van gettting that much for his tickets now? wow.
klokwkHeatWave: kind of a rip-off, Dave? is that what you'e saying?
Dave : from 7:30 to 8:45 exactly, I'm hurt honestly I thought he would be a little nicer than that
klokwkHeatWave: maybe you can scalp the ticket?
Dave : yes and of all concerts to see I've been waiting for this one for a looooooong time
principalPoop: night ah, clem, have a super week, thanks again
cease: it is now a product, dave. no longer the van morrison of yore
DeepThroat: thnx dex
principalPoop: are you sitting on the stage with him for that price dave?
Bunnyboy: DT: I remember thinking that Anne Bancroft was a little fuzzy during that ep, when it first broadcast several months back. I assume she was in declining health, even at that time.
Dexter Fong: Night Clem
Dave : I know Cat I just didn't want to think of him like that
klokwkHeatWave: yeah, I 'bout freaked when "Andrew Lloyd Weber" went public
||||||||| ah,clem leaves to catch the 10:23 PM train to Hellmouth.
Dave : and no I'm not on the stage
Bunnyboy: But she was very cute, channeling Leo Bloom.
principalPoop: take the last train to hellmouth and I will meet you at the station
Bunnyboy: "The majority? Let's listen to the majority!"
Bambi: See ya abit later Clem :-) enjoyed the show very much as always
cease: there's a, i think, joni mitchell song, with they lyric, "he played real good for free"
Dave : I just don't want it to be a bad concert for that short time, he can be on or off
DeepThroat: Larry David should have been cast as Leo Bloom http://www.hbo.com/larrydavid/
principalPoop: ok dave, ouch, I have not been to a concert recently
cease: i was reading something on line or somewhere today that the musicians will earn their money from touring, playing, not selling product any more
Dave : but it's one set, at a Sold Out show
principalPoop: mmmm bambi, green lantern expert
cease: but "record sales" made very few rich, only their companies and assorted parasites
klokwkHeatWave: you should be able to *make* money on that ticket, if you're upset, Dave
Dave : I know Cat I've heard the same thing, but if that's the case then Van's got enough money to last, just wish he would value it all more
Bunnyboy: DT: And Richard Kind, from SPIN CITY, who played Larry David's idiot cousin in the 4th season finale, is presently playing Max Bialystock on Broadway.
klokwkHeatWave: yeah, Cat, I always re-visit that Salon article, "Courtney Love Does the Math", about "back on the Plantation again"
Bambi :)
DeepThroat: Jeff Garlin should have been cast as Max Bialystock.
Dave : I should klok, but I still want to go because it's the concert I've been waiting for, just wish it was...longer
cease: dave, look at the flip side of that. we just saw the firesign in seattle in jan. i forget how much it was, maybe $30 or $40, plus hotel and meals in seattle, many multiples of that. but it was firesign theatre. and they benefitted mightily from that..
principalPoop: bob dylan is perfoming at the local baseball triple A stadium
cease: austin said it was their most successful financial tour and they can use the money
cease: it entices them to tour more. and we all benefift
principalPoop: yes, you will have a magical time dave
klokwkHeatWave: I remember going to see Jimmy Buffett, back when he hadn't even done "Living and dying in 3/4 time" in a little venue.
DeepThroat: Ben Stiller would have been an excellent LSD
Bambi: nobody ever comes up into the hills
Bambi: l
Bambi: lol
klokwkHeatWave: and I paid lots of $$ to get in, and the owner said he was only playing one set ('cause he was going to bring in another crowd for the second set)
principalPoop: we get a lot of christian rock groups here, and gun shows
cease: i once sat so close to jarret's piano at a club in la, drops of his flying sweat landed on my table, imperilling my drink
Bunnyboy: DT: Yah, LSD was chopped from the stage show. They trade his energy between Franz Liebkind and Roger DeBris.
Dave : I know, I've really just gotta enjoy it for what it is, almost glad I know now so I'm not having a fit when it ends so early tomorrow
Bambi: what a ripoff ... you paid for concert set ... instead of concert?
cease: the dirnks were more than the admission.
DeepThroat: David Schwimmer would be nicely cast as Franz Liebkind.
Dave is listening to Van to comfort him even though he is angry with him
klokwkHeatWave remembers driving hours to Washington DC to see Proctor and Bergman perform in Georgetown
DeepThroat: How could they cut LSD?
cease: on the other hand, you can still hear the van morrisons of the future at little clubs near where you live i'm sure
Dave : if anyone wants the best album after Astral Weeks, get a copy of Common One from 1980
DeepThroat: You're kidding.
Bunnyboy: Paul Simon's last solo tour show almost would have been worth it just for the instrument display, on stage. I never saw so many guitars and percussion racks in my life!
cease: with fascism, deep
Bunnyboy: DT: Like this - SCHNIP!
DeepThroat: They cut LSD?
Dave : I wonder what the reaction of the crowd will be after it's all over
klokwkHeatWave: sheesh, you soak the tab in a glass of water and everyone gets a shot glass from it
Bunnyboy: DT: Yeah, with the brown stricnyne. So WATCH IT!
DeepThroat: Lorenzo St. DuBois aka L.S.D. ...cut from the musical?
klokwkHeatWave: perhaps they will attack the stage, Dave
Dexter Fong must leave to park car (puts up "I'm away" sign
Dave : yeah I heard Paul Simon's tour was massive
klokwkHeatWave: happy parking, Dex
principalPoop: good luck fong
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "10:32 PM and late as usual, it's Bubba's Brain, just back from New York."
Bambi: see ya later Dex
klokwkHeatWave: I'm gonna fade away in 3 min
Bunnyboy: They cut LSD, because they set the show about 10 years earlier than the "Swingin' 60s".
Bambi: or on the flipside of thursday
klokwkHeatWave: Hey Bubba!
principalPoop: ahhh bubba
Bambi: me too ... getting too tired here
Bambi: was working on a website all day
Dave : perhaps, but if Van's already set the limits, he obviously won't care, just thought that since he's never played Red Rocks he'd do something special...*sigh*
Bunnyboy: The cast Franz Liebkind as Hitler.
Bubba's Brain: hey all.
DeepThroat: I know that Ben Stiller could play LSD... Did you see him in that movie about the camp for fat boys?
Bambi: hey Bubba
klokwkHeatWave swore he would never go to another "big name" concert and then went to see Alison Krauss in New Haven.
principalPoop: eat some sugar smacks, oops honey smacks
Bunnyboy: Liebkind breaks his leg, and Roger DeBris pinch-hits Der Fuhrer, ala Judy Garland.
Bambi: lol
Dave : allright everyone I'm sorry about my ventings, I'll enjoy it I know, just was shocked about that
principalPoop D
klokwkHeatWave: Paid $40 for 3rd balcony seats and they must've PO'ed the union at the Schubert or something -- there wasn't any sound
principalPoop: ahhh that is how I do that
Bambi: tomorrow gotta take a 1 1/2 hr drive each way to pick up a sick computer and reformat with new os
klokwkHeatWave: so, anyway, never again for SURE from now on ;-)
cease: santana is coming to van and he's about the only musician i would have wanted to see that i've never seen.
principalPoop smiles at bambi
cease: stil, i was so dissappointed with steely dan, i don't know
klokwkHeatWave: Bambi -- is it worth it for them?
Dave : that sucks klok that would have been a good one, I saw Ben Harper at Red Rocks, that was a great one, as well as James Taylor, which was also great if a little too mellow, but they were all less than 115 dollars
principalPoop: oye como va, I would go just to hear that
Bambi: well, all my clients are at least 1 hour away Klok ... I don't charge for the travel ... yet LOL
cease: kend saw carlos recently in dallas, didnt he?
cease: some monster guitar show
principalPoop: somebody did
klokwkHeatWave: Dave - I remember all the times I saw some unknown artist for $10 somewhere (or for free) and had just the greatest time
cease: that was my point, klok and dave
klokwkHeatWave: I tend to let all the "names" have fun with their rabid fans and I look for other stuff that's rewarding and CHEAP (or free)
principalPoop: charge for gas now, ouch
cease: of course, i grew up near where the doors were playing high schools.
DeepThroat: Ben Stiller played Tony Perkis in Heavy Weights (1995)
klokwkHeatWave: yeah, he got to see him at some Blues fest, didn't he?
Bunnyboy: June 17th, they'll announce this year's full Bumbershoot slate.
Bunnyboy: www.bumbershoot.org
Bambi: gas is expensive these days
DeepThroat: Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara were in the movie, too
cease: first year university, an english class decided to end early so we could all go listen to janis joplin wailing away outside
cease: etc etc.
cease: you go to that, bun?
klokwkHeatWave: I used to wander down after work to a little pub in Chapel Hill and pay the cover and just sit there nursing a beer
Bubba's Brain: or beering a nurse.
principalPoop: We had a bar with a john prine impersonator, fun to drink and sing along with those songs, dear abby dear abby
Bambi: just paid 2.07 and 9 yesterday per gallon to fill it up ... course the Honda gets decent gas mileage
klokwkHeatWave: pretty soon, there'd be some unknown on the stage, picking and not much later, most of the Red Clay Ramblers would be up there wailing away. Sometimes Mike Cross, too.
Bunnyboy: cat: Bumbershoot? Oh, yah. Although I haven't gone, as often as I have.
Bunnyboy: Depends on who's playing.
cease: i know its a favourite of ossman.
principalPoop: roanoke about the same, just the idea, I remember when it was 0.25
cease: he's discovered musicians there he went on to work with on his theatre projects
Bunnyboy: I saw George Thorogood, Little Feat, Miles Davis, Little Richard, Ani DiFranco, Lou Reed, etc etc...
klokwkHeatWave: for hours and all for maybe $3. Years later, I'd go to big festivals or clubs up north where they'd play and it was all so horrifyingly stupid, expensive, short and soulless...
cease: litle feet the original or the current crop?
principalPoop: ahhh, another mis-spent youth
Bunnyboy: I missed one of Roy Orbison's last performances, because I was rehearsing THE WORST SHOW EVER, at the time.
Dave wishes he could have seen Miles Davis, one of his heroes
||||||||| It's 10:40 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Asssk_and - dead from the common cold
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
klokwkHeatWave: wow, that show sounds like a real hot ticket, BB ;-)
cease: sounds firesonian
Bunnyboy: cat: sans Lowell George.
cease: ah
principalPoop: boy george?
Bunnyboy: Dave: Miles was the bomb.
Dave also wishes he could have seen Tim Buckley but would to have been born a long time before he was, hence this want to see Van and the annoyance at the short set, of all the artists who are alive today Van is the one I want to see the most
klokwkHeatWave: OK, folx, my meter's run out here and I'm fresh out of buffalo nickels
cease: the lowell george little feat was one of those great jazzy bands of the early 70s when fusion was really kicking in
Dave : bb when did you see him? what period?
principalPoop: click klok
klokwkHeatWave: thanks, Bubba! See you Dave. Bye, everyone!
cease: you are lucky to see him then dave.
Dave : bye klok
klokwkHeatWave: nite 2 u cat
klokwkHeatWave: say hi to DT and Lili if they show
klokwkHeatWave: for me
cease: klok
||||||||| klokwkHeatWave rushes off, saying "10:42 PM? Mark Time is almost on! Where's a radio?"
Dave : I know Cat, I know
cease: hi bub. wutta rub?
Bubba's Brain: nite, klock
principalPoop: I will toddle too, toodles
Bambi: night cat and klok
||||||||| At 10:42 PM, principalPoop vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
Bambi: and I am off now ... I need to get some rest here soon too
cease: bambi
Bubba's Brain: cutta rug?
Bambi: night PP :-)
cease: daze droppin like martian flies in a klien bottle
Bunnyboy: Dave: I saw Miles around 1989 or 1990. It was one of his last tourarounds.
Bambi: nytol! have a great week
Dave : I'm still here, and why is Catherwoods clock set an hour ahead of mine, central time?
||||||||| Catherwood says "It's 10:43 PM"
||||||||| Bambi is forcibly ejected just as the clock strikes 10:43 PM.
cease: i saw him in van in the 70s. very tight band
Bunnyboy: nite klok
cease: he was very loose though
Bunnyboy: nite Bambi
Dave : yeah BB, most people didn't like that period, I did, short bursts he'd play, but he was always interested in new sounds and music as his last album will prove, people who say that that era of his life was boring really need to listen more closely
Dave : ah yes Cat, that's probably my fave period of his, just got his concert at the Aisle of White festival in '70
Dave : haven't watched it yet
DeepThroat: Max Bialystock's most memorable line in the movie... "HELP!"
Dave : I wrote my college essay on Miles' influences on me, and to think I've only been listening to him for about 2 years, I just obsorbed all I could from his music and listen to him almost daily
cease: he had something profound to say in many eras, dave
Dave : and could talk music for days on end
cease: which movie?
cease: that's not real, that's Seem Real
DeepThroat: In my mind's eye I can easily imagine Jeff Garlin delivering that line.
Dave : yes he did Cat, I just find that I play that era of the '70-76 period quite a bit, all of it is great though
Bunnyboy: Dave: I saw Miles around the time that was documented on the LIVE AROUND THE WORLD CD.
DeepThroat: The only moive. The 1968 movie. No, not "Head."
DeepThroat: Moive?
Dave : yeah I've got that one BB, good stuff although the complete Montreux stuff is better
DeepThroat: The Producers, cease.
cease: i had an opportunity to see the Live Evil concert in la, he did with the band. still angry that i didnt go
Dave : the things he did at Montreux, he did some great playing that just echoes so beautifully
Bunnyboy: DT: My favorite Max line related his fallen state: "Look at me now! I'm wearing a cardboard belt!"
cease: yes the 70s were when he was doing music contiguously to my appreciating it, but i'm very fond of his old stuff too
cease: that is a good line, bun
Dave : another good one Cat, got it as well, scary really sometimes but still amazing, that was with Jerrit who never has liked electric piano since
cease: indeed, dave
cease: but i loved all those pianos blasting away. that was my instrument
Dave : yeah Cat, really there was no turning back for him which is....just..yeah his music means a lot to me, just like Van's, I'm very passionate and a little crazy
DeepThroat: DeepThroat (Dexter Fong) ...you're guessing!
cease: if you['re not at your age, you probably never will be, unless it's some form of diseased republican politics in your early senility
Dave : yeah it's an awesome sound, if you want to hear the best concert recording of that period, get Agharta, recorded in '75 in Japan, my mouth dropped open at some of the things they did on that date
Dave : all quiet on the FST front
DeepThroat: LSD went down the Memory Hole... bummer
Dave : doctor memory?
DeepThroat: Nobody want to think about LSD anymore
Dave : never tried it don't want to
Bunnyboy: I would imagine that Will Ferrell will capture a bit of both Kenneth Mars and Dick Shawn's energy, when he plays Liebkind in the movie musical.
cease: i just went to a conference about psychedelics, now called entheogens
cease: lots of scholars reading papers. if you're into that kind of thing
DeepThroat: if people were allowed to smoke medicinal marijuana, they could completely forget about LSD
Dave : hmmm, why can't they just let it be what it is?
cease: not true, deep.
Bunnyboy: cat: Say entheogens backwards, seven times fast!
Dave : what exactly was the court ruling on that? I only heard bits and pieces
DeepThroat: what was I saying?
cease: i'd rrather be under its spell than spell it
Dave : cat I sent you a private msg
DeepThroat: oh. yeah. Federal drug enforcement policy targets casual pot smokers
Bunnyboy: I've gotta go rescue some ice cream from Bunnette. Nitey, folks!
DeepThroat: Meanwhile, pro baseball players can take speed.
DeepThroat: Go figure.
cease: by bun
Dave : oh yeah, cause sports improvement is ok I guess if it's artificial
DeepThroat: They're getting around to doing something about steroids. I'd like to hear Chump Threads rant about steroids.
||||||||| At 10:59 PM, Bunnyboy dashes out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
Dave : lol!
DeepThroat: U.S. drug policy, that is.
Dave : that was ironic wasn't it, bun's exit
DeepThroat: Where is Chump Threads when we need him?
cease: he screams for ice cream
cease: i think bergman can get into chump thread mode very easily
Dave : I like ice cream, hey cat did you ever figure out what was wrong with your keyboard?
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
cease: dangle a microphone and some money in front of him and you'll find chump foaming at the mouth
DeepThroat: I wonder when the feds are going to get around to targetting people who shout FUCK in chat rooms
Dave : haha
DeepThroat: oops
Dave : I know, or trying to ban porn on the net
cease: yes. it was on canadian settings, meaning french. i had to call the dealer to find out.
DeepThroat: shouting FUCK in chat rooms is immoral
Dave : ah oops Cat
Dave : it is DT, how dare you do that
cease: its just thislittle chromium switch here
DeepThroat: I'm going to clone my stem-cells, dammit! Just try to stop me!
Dave : well glad to see you're speaking English again and not..whatever that was
cease: i was on something one shouldn't do when typing skills are required
Dave : well people I think I'm gonna get off
cease: off you get
cease: off we go.
||||||||| At 11:04 PM, cease hurries out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
DeepThroat: give me them or I'm going over there
||||||||| DeepThroat rushes off, saying "11:05 PM? Mark Time is almost on! Where's a radio?"
Dave : night all I will be back next week with full details of the concert, Cat expect an email if that's ok, layter all
||||||||| At 11:05 PM, Dave scurries out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
||||||||| Outside, the 11:08 PM downtown bus from AOL pulls away, leaving Bightrethighrehighre coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Bightrethighrehighre: toadre vehhhhhh-heh, toadre vehhhhhh-heh, toadre vehhhhhh-heh, toadre vehhhhhh-heh, toadre vehhhhhh-heh, toadre vehhhhhh-heh,
Bightrethighrehighre: vehhrrrrr du jew gohh fehhn jewr to-ohhh-dre vehhhhhh-heh....??

||||||||| Dexter Fong - dead from the fiddlers
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood walks in wearing his pyjamas, yawns, and mumbles "It's midnight here in New York city"...then he falls over and starts snoring loudly..
||||||||| 12:01 AM -- Bightrethighrehighre left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
||||||||| 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."
