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 16, 2005 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in at 7:58 PM, dragging ah,clem by one leg and asks "Can anyone vouch for this Firehead?"
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" , more dear friends, dear friends'
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 8 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and announces "Presenting 'Merlyn', just granted probation at 8:03 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
Merlyn: Hey clem...
||||||||| Outside, the 8:04 PM uptown bus from Michigan pulls away, leaving llandfyll coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
llandfyll: how goes it?
llandfyll: missed you guys last week
Merlyn: it goes in and out like anything!
Merlyn: But not much happening recently.
ah,clem: well, feed should be on..
Merlyn: I'm being welcomed to the future now
llandfyll: electrical phenomena kept me away last week
llandfyll: having to do with the rain apparently
Merlyn: Let's just call it "the phenomena"
ah,clem: where was merlin last week, and what is wrong with the butler's clock?
llandfyll: I may have it scrambled
Merlyn: Hey llan, did Nino get your location of Michigan right?
||||||||| Tweeno Williams enters at 8:08 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and rushes off to the Chapeau Manger.
Merlyn: I was busy playing world of warcraft
Tweeno Williams: The adventure continues...
ah,clem: BBL, got radio to do
Merlyn: catherwood, what time is it?
||||||||| Catherwood says "It's 8:08 PM"
Merlyn: Hey, he's pretty close tonight.
llandfyll: No Merl, I'm in the northern part of NY state
||||||||| 8:09 PM: Dexter Fong jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past five minutes!"
Tweeno Williams: Evenin' all
Merlyn: only off by an inch or se
Dexter Fong: Yah gotta stick it out if yah wanna start early
llandfyll: my mother didn't talk to me much
Dexter Fong: Heya Clem, llan,Merl, and Tweenster
llandfyll: hey dex
Tweeno Williams: So what's new with the FST? Any more talk of radio dates?
Merlyn: Nothing lately, pretty quiet
Tweeno Williams: Damn NPR (and XM, for that matter).
Dexter Fong: 've got a 1942 Philco Table Radio with real Bakelite finish drawers
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Elayne close behind, grumbles something about disrupting his 8:12 PM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the sitting room.
llandfyll: hi e
Dexter Fong: Hi elayne
Elayne: Evenin' all!
ah,clem: hi dex, & tweeno
Dexter Fong: llan: YOu seem rather speedy tonight =)
ah,clem: hi E!
Tweeno Williams: My folks gave me their 1940's vintage Philco portable (about the size of a toaster oven). Pretty cool but not in working order. They too it to the beach at Daytona.
llandfyll: I didn't know Philco made radios, I thought they just sponsored Bing Crosby
Tweeno Williams: Howdy E...
Dexter Fong: Tween: Did they race it?
Dexter Fong: 1940'2 race radio....Amos & Andy sings de blues
Dexter Fong: Hey Clem: How's Bambi )and you, of course) doing?
llandfyll: I found that out by trying to link Enrico Caruso to the rock band Yes in less than six degrees. I had to use Bing Crosby to do it
Dexter Fong: Test
||||||||| Dexter Fong leaves to catch the 8:16 PM train to New York.
||||||||| "8:16 PM? 8:16 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Dexter Fong should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Dexter Fong enters and sits in front of the fireplace.
Elayne: Any word from Doc and/or Lili yet?
Dexter Fong: The above is a sure sign I've just logged on to CNI radio =))
Tweeno Williams: Howdy E...
Dexter Fong: by a brown shoed square in the the ead of night
llandfyll: If you are interested, it went: Caruso>Jolson>Crosby>Bowie>Wakeman
Elayne: Hey Tweeno!
Merlyn: haven't heard anything myself, E
Dexter Fong: Nor I either Elayne
Tweeno Williams: Raced only on Sondays in the colored section.
||||||||| Catherwood sneaks into the room, and announces "Announcing 'cease', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 8:18 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the sitting room...
Dexter Fong: Hey Cat
Elayne: Hello Cat!
cease: hi all
Dexter Fong wipes of Hour Hour show
Dexter Fong: oops wipes off Dear Hollywood

Dexter Fong: Cat: Dear Friends opening with Leon Russell

Tweeno Williams: Are there more archives of the Dear Friends available other than the album?
cease: i just got your email dex asking what i got out of blogging. well for one thing, i was able to post pix of flowers. not anymore though!
ah,clem: depends on who signs up, Dex (tour) LOL
Dexter Fong: llan: Yet...strangely appropriate

llandfyll: or was that edgar winter
cease: so i tried that today and still cant post a picture
cease: edgar, llan
Dexter Fong: llan: Yes..was the musical director for "Mad Dogs and Englishmen Tour" with Joe Cocker
cease: i also like being able to react to something like that bozos review i was telling you about last week.
Elayne: Cat, do you want to email me the pictures you want to post, and I'll upload them to my Buzznet account?
cease: anyone read my review of bozos on my blog?
||||||||| Catherwood escorts J Piano in through the front door at 8:23 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
J Piano: Hello...
llandfyll: hi J
cease: wow. that would be splendid, el
Tweeno Williams: The ivories tinkle...
Elayne: I skimmed it, Cat. I'm pretty behind in my blog reading.
Elayne: No prob, Cat, I have a weekend coming up after all.
J Piano: Leon Russell - worked with Cocker, was session player for years
cease: i sent you what i tried to do on buzznet and what happened then, eh, el?
Elayne: Hello J!
Dexter Fong: E: Buzznet...Is this some kind of virtual means of getting "goodly stretched"?
J Piano: Edgar Winter, albino - sax/keyboards, brother to Johnny Winter
cease: roll away the stone was a great tune
Elayne: Would 'twere that were, Unca Dex!
J Piano: Hi E!
llandfyll: Bozos was an album I acquired late
Dexter Fong: Hey Herr Doktor Klavier
Elayne: Hang on, Cat, did you email me?
Elayne: I don't check that account daily. :)
J Piano: Yo Dexatrim!
cease: i also like reviewing restaurants. i reccomended the cauliflower in tomato sauce i had with you and the others in the village, dex
llandfyll: I have to say Bozos is a masterpiece
Dexter Fong sucks in gut and tries to look trim
Tweeno Williams: You're NYC cease?
J Piano: LOL, Dex
Tweeno Williams: Agreed, LL.
Elayne: Ah, okay Cat, I've just read your email. Send me the URL of your Buzznet homepage.
cease: i said even more than that on my blog, llan. which for those of you interested is at seemrealland.blogspot.com
Dexter Fong: Dex backwards is "Xed" or nothing....aieeee!!!!
cease: ok, el
llandfyll: sounds like a vegetarian restaurant. I'd try vegetarianism, but I'm just one of those types that needs a lot of protein and can't afford seitan
llandfyll: I'll definitely check it out, cat
Elayne: It's weird, my Buzznet invite thing to you still shows as pending.
Elayne: So what's the URL?
cease: http://www.buzznet.com/?utm_source=google&utm_medium=ppc&utm_term=keywords&utm_campaign=global
Elayne: No Cat, that doesn't work. What's your user name? I'll do a search.
cease: csimril
Elayne: Thanks, hang on.
Dexter Fong: Cat is a user?
J Piano: Hey, llan - did I tell you I'm playing a gig opening for Asia in a couple weeks?
Elayne: Okay, to other people your Buzznet page is: http://csimril.buzznet.com/user/
cease: anyone following the "hearing" in DC today? i listened to it on randi rhode's show. amazing
llandfyll: what do you play, J?
Elayne: Just like mine is: http://elayne.buzznet.com/user/
J Piano: Keyboards, naturally
llandfyll: you lucky dog
Tweeno Williams: The original members, J? Wow...
J Piano: Should be fun meeting Geoff Downes
Elayne: And I only see five pictures total in your gallery, Cat. Is that correct?
J Piano: Nah, Tween, the only original is Downes
Elayne: The URL of the most recent one is: http://img3.buzznet.com/assets/users8/csimril/default/gallery-msg-1118806800-2.jpg
llandfyll: tell Steve I said hi. If he's still doing that instead of "Remedy"
Tweeno Williams: Yeah, cease, I assume you're talking about the English memo. There are some people serious about impeachment, apparently.
cease: right. and the picture of me was supposed to be on the blog, as my id photo. never got it there though
Elayne: That's about what most of your Buzznet addresses will look like if you want to do the "img scr=" thing in Blogger.
Tweeno Williams: Downes is no slouch. Heck of a rig he had back then.
Elayne: Oh okay, that's easy stuff. Hang on.
llandfyll: what's the name of your band, J? Or are you solo?
Elayne: Here's the URL of your picture: http://img3.buzznet.com/assets/users8/csimril/default/thumb-msg-1116462115-2.jpg
cease: i tried to post the picture of kim's grave and the new flowers on bit's grave, plus a couple of pictures from the garden show i went to last week, but alas
J Piano: The Oohs - we're an indie pop band - kinda Beatlesque
llandfyll: Cool!
Elayne: Check the source code on my blog, my sidebar picture should be up near the top, that'll give you a good starting point on how to post yours.
Dexter Fong rushes off for refill
Elayne: Actually, hang on, let me look at the source code of your blog...
cease: so i can just type (img src="< and then that url onto blogger?
J Piano: You can listen to some stuff at http://www.myspace.com/theoohs
llandfyll: So Geoff is not a Buggle these days? Good for him
J Piano: Actually, llan - it's my understanding that Downes is playing later this year with Alan White
Tweeno Williams: Very nice, J...
Elayne: That's weird, Cat, I can't find the code for your sidebar...
J Piano: There's going to be a tour featuring White's side project, Chris Squire with The Syn, and Steve Howe solo
llandfyll: I saw Geoff and Alan with Yes in 1980 at MSG
J Piano: At the end of their shows, the 4 Drama-era Yes guys will play some of that material!
Tweeno Williams: The Drama tour?
Elayne: Cat, did you build your sidebar or was it just imported automatically from some kind of template?
ah,clem: hey Johnny, talk to Bambi. You hay be able to secure a more logical URL. :)
cease: template, el
llandfyll: Is that the so-called "More Drama" tour? I've heard of it
J Piano: Well, clem - we do have http://www.theoohs.com - I just sent a link straight to the audio
Elayne: Oh geez, no wonder you can't import other stuff into it. I'm afraid the coding of the auto-template is a little beyond me.
cease: so i should build my own then, el?
J Piano: I do appreciate the thought, nonetheless
Elayne: Cat, check my source code. It's easy enough to do.
ah,clem: oh, ok, J, just trying to help
Elayne: Here's the code for my picture:
Tweeno Williams: Ahs anyone used Netscape to create web pages? Thinking of putting up one of my own.
Dexter Fong: Cat: You need to watch "This old URL" on free TV
cease: indeed, dex
Elayne: Dang. Okay, let's see if I can do it substituting brackets [ ] for carats < >...
Dexter Fong: Boy was my words red
J Piano: No problem, Ahclem - always happy to have assistance
cease: have the commies invaded? everything is Red
Tweeno Williams: Methinks the HTML has gone awry...
Dexter Fong: Merlyn!!!!??? Are you fooling around??>
Elayne: My fault, I fear.
Merlyn: hmm

llandfyll: I was kept offline last week, apparently by some atmospheric disturbance in my phone line. That's something to call up Art Bell about
||||||||| Catherwood walks up and intones "Presenting 'Asssk_and', just granted probation at 8:39 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
Merlyn: no, fixing it.
Elayne: Sorry, I didn't realize copying source code would do that...
Asssk_and: hewo
Elayne: Let's try that again without the brackets. :)
Merlyn: or maybe it just needs to scroll off the top
Dexter Fong: Hey A_a
Tweeno Williams: Mr. Answerman joins the fray...
J Piano: Dex, I think that color problem you private messaged about is spreading...
J Piano: Howdy A-a
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in at 8:40 PM, dragging principalPoop by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this idiot?"
J Piano: The Pooper is in
Dexter Fong: JP: It's not a *color* problem...it's the problem some people have with colors
Tweeno Williams: Hey Lew...
llandfyll: It doesn't bother me. I'm not color blind
Dexter Fong: Hey pP
principalPoop: idiot? bring me a censor catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood gets principalPoop a censor.
Elayne: [A HREF="http://www.soulmateproductions.com/Pages/erintro.html"] [img width="75" height="100" src="http://img3.buzznet.com/assets/users8/elayne/default/gallery-msg-1118330134-2.jpg?1574771327" title="Who am us, anyway?"][/A]
principalPoop: lew? shhhh, call me poop
llandfyll: I see red all the time
J Piano: No problem here - I often play with colors
Elayne: See where before the "src" I put the image width and height, Cat?
Asssk_and: i see the source
Dexter Fong thinks Elyane is a bit show offy
J Piano: Mmmmm, Split Enz - I See Red
Elayne: No Unca Dex, it's pretty easy, it's just how to link to a picture and embed it with text.
Tweeno Williams: A man of principle.
principalPoop: the recipe for a nuclear bomb?
cease: yes i do, el
llandfyll: so run my life for me folks. What should I have for supper?
ah,clem: bring me a pale ale catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood gives ah,clem a pale ale.
Elayne: Cat, if you look at my picture on my blog's sidebar, that's all the coding for it.
Dexter Fong: I'm not getting in bed with anyone from texast
principalPoop: hehe she said embed hehe
principalPoop: ok
cease: so with that code, i should be able to at least post the pic of myself?
Elayne: Bambi could probably help you more.
Elayne: I'm not good at explaining stuff like that.
Tweeno Williams: Black gold...
J Piano: Catherwood, pass the Indian please.
||||||||| Catherwood walks up to J Piano and mumbles "Did you need me?"
principalPoop: pale ale? have a near beer instead
cease: i'll email bambi in search of assitance, el
Elayne: Yes Cat, just substitute the URL of your picture, and find a place on your sidebar where you want to stick it.
J Piano: Catherwood, please pass me the Indian
||||||||| Catherwood passs J Piano the indian.
principalPoop: hehe she said stick it hehe
Elayne: Oh, and if you want it to point to something, it's probably a good idea to have it point to seemreal.com instead of soulmateproductions.com :)
llandfyll: good idea. I'll have some indian
J Piano: Yum...curry!
Tweeno Williams: And he eats the mickey hart.
llandfyll: I'll make masala
J Piano: Catherwood, bring me some Tandoori chicken
||||||||| Catherwood gives J Piano some tandoori chicken.
Dexter Fong: ttttthhhhhhhhhhhhhhppppppp!
principalPoop: yes sir that's masala
cease: yes indeed, el
Elayne: When you put your cursor on my sidebar picture, you see the words "Who Am Us, Anyway?" Then if you click on the picture, you're taken to my bio on Robin's and my website.
llandfyll: eating the heart of a mickey isn't something Christ would do
J Piano: Anybody got some naan bread?
cease: i see, el
principalPoop: should anyway be anyhow?
Tweeno Williams: I'll fry up the ears, LL ;)
J Piano: I-C-L?
Elayne: That's what all that coding does. It grabs the picture, it gives it a label, and it takes the person clicking on it to whatever site you want.
llandfyll: I prefer chapati
Dexter Fong: llan: But giving a *micvkey* to someone who has eaten a mickey heart...heh heh heh
Asssk_and: love html so fun
llandfyll: LOL tween
Elayne: I wish you were still here, we could work on it together. :)
J Piano: How's about a garlic kulcha?
principalPoop: zinc
Dexter Fong: JP: I think Italy has a garlic culture
J Piano: Maybe some puppadoms?
cease: rightlclicking on your image i get a box that has Link Properties and Image Properties urls
llandfyll: don't know how to make kulch but I make chapati all the time
cease: this is as far as i was able to get when i tried to post pic to buzznet
llandfyll: good one dex!
Dexter Fong enjoys hunting the wild chapiti
J Piano: I'm still groaning, Dex
principalPoop: that is ireland font, they speak garlic
Elayne: Are you using a Mac, Cat? I'm afraid I don't know from Macs, only PCs.
cease: italy has culture?
cease: i'm using my pc, el
Dexter Fong: Cat: Don't be supercilious
J Piano: The culture that one must wash off, Cat
cease: i'm listening to air america on the mac
Asssk_and: culture for sour dough bread ?
principalPoop: the fungus among us
Tweeno Williams: Silly super Us.
Dexter Fong: am every day people
Elayne: When I right-click on a picture using my browser, I get a whole menu.
principalPoop: I I I love everyday people
llandfyll: I'm hearing that pizzeria music from Neal Amid in my mind's ear, cat
Elayne: It starts "Open Link," "Open Link in New Window," etc. etc. "Properties" is the last choice.
llandfyll: that was hilarious
J Piano: Catherwood, a round of Desenex for our Italian friends
||||||||| Catherwood walks up to J Piano and queries "Something I can help with?"
Elayne: You don't get a pull-down menu when you right-click, Cat?
principalPoop: sly and the family stone, dig it
||||||||| Outside, the 8:49 PM downtown bus from Rhode Island pulls away, leaving klokwk-kool coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
klokwk-kool: oops
J Piano: Klok!
Tweeno Williams: I'm hearing Rundgren my ear's eye.
||||||||| klokwk-kool leaves to catch the 8:49 PM train to Rhode Island.
cease: i tried copying first one of those urls, then the other between the <>'s onto blogger and the only thing it posted was (img src+") on my blog, not picture at all
principalPoop: you can't figure out the bag I am in
Tweeno Williams: Dogman...
principalPoop: click klok
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies klokwk-kool into the room, accepts an I.O.U. as a gratuity, mumbles something about 8:49 PM, then departs.
llandfyll: howdy klok
Dexter Fong: JP or anybody: Is Larry Graham on bass on "Sly.Stone"?
cease: hi klok. even i'm into the tech talk tonight
J Piano: Ah, Todd - one of my heroes
klokwk-kool: howdy everyone
Elayne: Don't copy URLs yet, Cat! Just tell me whether you get a pull-down menu when you right-click on something, just like everyone else who has a PC does.
Dexter Fong: Hey Klok
llandfyll: a bag of sugar, poop?
J Piano: Larry Graham WAS in the Family Stone.
klokwk-kool: cat -- I don't speek blog ;-)
principalPoop: senator larry graham from georgia or alabama?
Asssk_and: i speak net clog ;)
llandfyll: we don't need no speeking blogs
Dexter Fong: JP: Hm..Intersting..always liked that group...found out that Jaco Pastorius was greatly influenced by him
J Piano: Poop, I think we're getting into that "color" thing again...
principalPoop: no, you cannot figure it out lol
principalPoop: ahhh clem
cease: yes the Element Properties I just mentioned, el. One url in Link Properties and another in Image Properties
J Piano: Really, Dex? Jaco dug Graham?
Elayne: Ah okay, Cat, I see what you're talking about. You're talking about after you click on "Properties," the box that FIREFOX has pop up.
Elayne: Okay, you want to use the image URL, not the link URL.
Elayne: The image URL of my picture is http://img3.buzznet.com/assets/users8/elayne/default/gallery-msg-1118330134-2.jpg?1574771327
llandfyll: I only recently heard Jaco for the first time, dex. "Heavy Weather" by Weather Report
principalPoop: on porpoise, flipper got drunk and was late giving me ride
Elayne: Make sure you drag your cursor across the ENTIRE URL before you hit Ctrl-C to copy it.
llandfyll: I still don't know if I like him. He's no Chris Squire
J Piano: Jaco was the shiznit
klokwk-kool: 'wal, 'round hier, if you step into a blog, ya might sink right up to ya elbows. lost a horse in one a them things
Dexter Fong: JP: Yes...a lot..course he dug a universe of music..but the aspects of bass ...he was influneced by LG
Tweeno Williams: Firefox is a really nice browser. Going to have to upgrade to OS X 1.4.
principalPoop: you look like my sister elayne, stop that please
principalPoop: ahhh, clem thanks you ahhhh
Elayne: Sorry PrinPoop, I'm trying to help Cat post pictures to his weblog.
Tweeno Williams: He did it on purpose.
J Piano: I spent a couple years in Miami - knew a lot of U of M music school folks who knew Jaco
llandfyll: By the way, how do you pronounce Jaco?
Dexter Fong: llan: Much as I like yes and the guys...Jaco was light years ahead of him in terms of integrating such diverse streams of music as he did
Tweeno Williams: That's 10.4, of course.
principalPoop: ahh ok, smirk or something so you look more like my sister lol
J Piano: Jaco sounds like Jocko
cease: okthe image property url is http://img3.buzznet.com/assets/users8/csimril
Asssk_and: well ah, clem you refreshed and it didn't go pooof
llandfyll: aha
cease: you're suggesting it's really longer?
Elayne: No, Cat, that's just the START. Yes, the image URL is longer!
Dexter Fong: "J" pronounced as the 'J' in Jack and "aco"
llandfyll: "Birdland" is a nice song
Tweeno Williams: We've got to get this guy a broadband connection.
Asssk_and: i fibbed
Elayne: You have to make sure you get the whole URL, ending with that series of numbers!
J Piano: Rhymes with Taco
Elayne: So I bet that's what you've been doing, you haven't dragged your cursor across to copy the whole thing.
klokwk-kool: zip...beep
cease: so how to i find out the real url? obviously NOT by clicking on Properties from the menu when I right click an image
Dexter Fong: Assssk: Indeed =)...I've gone blank
principalPoop: get him a broad band? swing or cool jozz?
klokwk-kool: just now remembered to turn on CNI Radio and they start talking about me and then crash
principalPoop: I have gone deaf
J Piano: Candy Dulfer could lead the broad band
Tweeno Williams: Ja, that's copascetic story us with me, ok?
Elayne: There was a great broad band in Some Like It Hot...
llandfyll: I've heard he did better stuff than Weather Report, but like I say, he's no Squire
principalPoop: you did it klok, over-load, zing zing zing
klokwk-kool: clem - it is finally COOL here, Mr. High took a plane back to Hamilton
cease: lol, el
llandfyll: Although I heard he thought he was
J Piano: Two different schools of bass, llan!
Elayne: Cat, all you have to do is click and drag your cursor across the address, and you'll get the whole URL.
principalPoop: yes it was, like tom hanks in the tv show as a girl lol
Dexter Fong: Well...CNI is gone
Elayne: Keep dragging the cursor even if it looks like the letters and numbers are running off the side of the window.
Elayne: The window isn't going to resize itself to show you the entire URL.
Dexter Fong: and taken me with him
Tweeno Williams: Clem, all you have to do is throw that little chromimum switch there...
||||||||| At 8:57 PM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Dexter Fong!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
klokwk-kool always liked Weather Report. I have to really, really like a group before I buy LP or CD
Asssk_and: could be a bad silicone diode?
J Piano: I didn't know that Clem was so superstitious
principalPoop: no, not that switch, oh my god, the other one...
||||||||| 8:57 PM: Dexter Fong jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past half hour!"
ah,clem: well, we hit 94 today klok, so has not arrived here yet
cease: oh i see, el.!
cease: maybe now it'll work for me.
principalPoop: fong returned
Elayne: Let me know if that helps at all, Cat. I have a feeling it will. :)
Dexter Fong: Clem: 94 listeners dropped?
cease: so in blogger, do i put that in the text of the blog post or the head?
Elayne: I should go, it's been an "icky female stuff" day for me and I need to lie down.
J Piano: Can you tell the difference between the silicone diode and the regular one?
Elayne: Next week, all!
cease: ok, thaks a lot el
Dexter Fong: afk
llandfyll: OK I've got some okra and some rice. I'll make something out of that
Tweeno Williams: Zawinful is most certainly on of very favs American key players. Up there with Bill Payne & Chick Corea.
principalPoop: night E!
J Piano: Nite, E!
klokwk-kool lost all hope last week, got out his credit card and ordered a Big Gulp Alberta Clipper, extra frosty, that's why, Clem
||||||||| Elayne rushes off, saying "8:58 PM? Mark Time is almost on! Where's a radio?"
ah,clem: where did Dex go when the lights went out?
klokwk-kool: byE
Tweeno Williams: Bye E
principalPoop: in the dark
cease: alberta has the clippers? la didn't want them anymore?
llandfyll: And plenty of bacon fat. I think I'll call it Okra Winfrey
klokwk-kool: we get lots of them in the winter for free, Cat
J Piano: Take your hands off of those silicone diodes!
klokwk-kool: they figure we'll pine for them in the summer and pay big $$ to get an encore
Asssk_and: i have an imaginary imagary of sound coming from the speakers of my silent world
llandfyll: how dare you talk about diodes in mixed company
||||||||| Elayne enters at 8:59 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and hurries off to the Hat Pack Annex.
Elayne: Sorry, one more thing Cat.
Elayne: Robin just taught me this.
principalPoop: I love tinitius, i am never bored
Tweeno Williams: The silicon valley of the diode dolls.
principalPoop: wb E
J Piano: Wow, revolving door...who needs a butler!
Elayne: Instead of clicking and dragging, just click and press Ctrl-A, then Ctrl-C.
Elayne: (In other words, hold down CTRL and type A, then C.)
llandfyll: what key is your tinitus in, poop?

Elayne: That'll capture and copy the whole URL without you having to worry about dragging the cursor.
||||||||| Bubba's Brain enters at 9:01 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and rushes off to the Chapeau Manger.
klokwk-kool: sounds too technical, E. "clicking and dragging" has a more bondage ring to it
principalPoop: hehe she said click and press Ctrl-AC hehe
J Piano: Poop's perfect pitch...
J Piano: Bub!
Elayne: Try it! I couldn't believe it, I never realized I could do that.
Bubba's Brain: Hey, all!
Tweeno Williams: My Grid, he's only off by one minute Central Time.

principalPoop: welcome to the world indiana :D

Tweeno Williams: Where they harvest Indiana hearts for the mousketeers.
principalPoop: I will practice my heavy breathing wheeze wheeze cough cough

Tweeno Williams: make it Bi-cuspid and I'll cycle it

llandfyll: santana claus is coming to town
J Piano: Santana needs to cut out the "guest star" crap and make a real Santana album
Bubba's Brain: I like Lugar... on the amount of stuff he's done for disarmament alone. I think he was the only republican I voted for last election.

Bubba's Brain: I can't stay long tonight. Gotta go soon.
Bubba's Brain: They're not all like Dubya... there's hope for the world.

Bubba's Brain: hey, ah, clem.
Tweeno Williams: Keep a lid on it ;) Maybe it'll go oyvay...

Dave : I am proud to announce that Mr. Van Morrison was in prime vocal form, never said but "thank you" to the crowd but his voice was great and the setlist was short but well-rounded, played for 90 minutes and left, but worth it

Bambi: howdy Cat, Dave, Dex, freditor, Johnny, Klok, llanwydd, PPoop, Tweeny, Merlyn, Asssk and of course ah,clem :-)

freditor in exile: Im PYST I missed the big Dali retro in Philly

J Piano: Fred, you ever go to the Dali museum in St. Pete (FL)

freditor in exile: cease: do you have a rlease date for box of time?
Dave : oo hey guys I have a dilemma involving one of your favorite...or at least someone who was around before I wasn't, now here's the problem, I bought the Lenny Bruce box set, but I can't read the liners, there was a copy of it at the library, and...to be honest it would save me 50 bucks if I returned this one I bought (I ordered it and you can return if unopened), but at the same time it's a cool set and important document, now I know what you're thinking, "an 18 year old in to Bruce? crazy kid," but...he was an interesting guy for sure. any advice from people at large?
cease: bubbba's brain would know, fred
J Piano: "She was looking right at me"
ah,clem: you're right, PP
Warptoo: hands ah, clem his next beverage

ah,clem: hi Warp!
cease: so what are you asking us, dave?
Tweeno Williams: Open wide and say "ah S*&t"...
J Piano: Hey Dave - no weirder than a 16-year-old into Firesign (almost 30 years ago)
klokwk-kool: hey DTh
freditor in exile: bruce is the juice
Dexter Fong: Dave: Bubba or Bunny could prolly give you a more definitive answer on that..Depends on what's on the set...But, you are right, Lenny was a giant among stand-ups
Warptoo: hey :)
J Piano: Hello, Mr. Felt
llandfyll: I've only heard an excerpt from a stand-up routine he did on Johnny Carson's show in the early 60s. He may have broken ground but I don't think he was all he was cracked up to be
cease: much modern, particular american humour stands on bruce's shoulders
Bambi: hi Warp (aka DT)
Bambi: oops...no he's not
freditor in exile: that's what you think?
principalPoop: arrested for telling dirty jokes at night in a night club to adults, in the 1960s wooow
cease: he was like carlin in that way, llan. he was first famous as a straign comedian
Dave : Cat I'm wondering if I should keep the box I bought, or if I should return it, and just copy the audio from the library and save 50 bucks, or if the money is worth it for the whole package
Warptoo: I get them now and then
Bambi: hi Warp!
klokwk-kool: Ilan -- it's probably like watching Jules et Jim now -- it doesn't seem so groundbreaking
Bambi: DeepT too
llandfyll: me too, J. I first got into FST when I was 15 or 16
freditor in exile: airplane glue!
DeepThroat: http://www.sundancechannel.com/al/
Warptoo: OMG what a great picture!
Dexter Fong: llan: You don't know what he did, and especially the context of the times in which he did it
llandfyll: I haven't seen that movie yet klok
freditor in exile: keep the bruce box - get the rest you need
cease: me too, llan. of course this was in la when they were first aborning
principalPoop: listen to the library cd, if you like it, open your box and keep it, if not, return it
J Piano: Yeah, llan - I just remembered I was 14 - so it has been 30 years of fandom
Dave : I just like his style really, reminds me a lot of me when I've done public speaking, except I usually have a point and don't just go, but people have told me I could do stand-up if I wanted to..not sure how to take that,
klokwk-kool: it's good, Ilan, but to read stuff like Ebert, you'd think it changed the world or something
freditor in exile: religions incorporated - still timely today
Dexter Fong: Dave: If they said you could do stand up, usually means they took your chair away
klokwk-kool: the commentary track on the DVD interested me more
DeepThroat: Al Franken is the only member of the Firesign Theatre who was never a member of the Firesign Theatre
cease: stand up isnt just about delivery. you actually have to have something funny to say
Tweeno Williams: Wish Sundance would stream. But then I wish they archived NOW.
freditor in exile: what about richard Paul?
Tweeno Williams: Have you listened to Bill Hicks, Dave?
Dave : yeah was listening to his Carnigei Hall concert from '61, very funny, the Berkely concert on the other hand loses me in places
J Piano: I'd give Richard Paul a serious nod as 5th Firesign
klokwk-kool thinks stand-up is more like psychic control: the comedian hypnotizes the audience into laughing
llandfyll: I've seen other Truffaut films I liked. Especially the 400 Blows
Dexter Fong: Freditor cast a pall over the chat room
cease: right on about NOw
DeepThroat: Steaming live web video of the ENTIRE Al Franken show would be nice.
freditor in exile: what again?
Dave : heard the name tween
cease: i? have a room?
llandfyll: FST would have nothing to do with Franken. And probably vice versa
Warptoo: in the clear on analog satellie would be good
J Piano: Richard's guest spots on Ossman & Austin's solo albums were brilliant
Merlyn: steaming it? How about broiling?
DeepThroat: But the edible digest on Sundance Channel takes less of my precious time.
Tweeno Williams: Try Arizona Bay, Dave.
cease: richard?
Dave : and in regards to the comments made to me, I had a lot of people laughing, but I just talk really it's not intentionally to humor people
freditor in exile: Paul used to be on Radio Oz as well - he wore the bag
J Piano: How about a simple microwaving of Al Franken
Tweeno Williams: Prawns, broiled prawns...
llandfyll: Anybody in their right mind would want to call themselves a Firesign. But I'm just a lowly Virgo
cease: paul?
freditor in exile: can franken finish a sentance?
cease: not krassner. but predates him
J Piano: I was aware Paul had played Papoon in public - didn't know he did Oz
Dexter Fong goes in search of refill...and knows just where to find it
Tweeno Williams: Can Frankenfish be sentenced?
principalPoop: check the zipper on your pants if people laugh and you are not saying anything funny dave
DeepThroat: I'd like to see Franken guest host SNL with FST as the musical guests. Agent Orange.
J Piano: A media prawn

freditor in exile: yeah man... Paul was ther before the beginning
Bambi: I am a lowly Pisces on the cusp with Aquarious ... so I am very confused LOL

DeepThroat: "yer mother..."
cease: that owuld have to be after lorne michaels dies,, deep
Dave : I'm a skorpeo
llandfyll: Why have FST never appeared on SNL?
Tweeno Williams: No truer words spoken by a deep throat. Write Lorne...
Tweeno Williams: Little Feat - Day or Night. Great cut.
principalPoop: this is the dawning of the age of aquarius
freditor in exile: Lorne micheals hated ft
DeepThroat: Whenever FST tries to go on SNL, they become invisible.
Warptoo: be well folks....back to programing the sattie
principalPoop: peter lorne or lorne green
J Piano: SNL is now the domain of the media hip
Tweeno Williams: Well, guess that's not going to happen then Phred.
principalPoop: warp is warping out
DeepThroat: Must be the microwaves
llandfyll: actually Monty Python were never on SNL either. And they were more popular
||||||||| Warptoo says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, Warptoo exits at 9:42 PM.
principalPoop: lorna doone
Bambi: ah,clem has nearly all the Little Feat albums/CDs
J Piano: Well, Idle & Palin were hosts on SNL
Tweeno Williams: He left so fast...
DeepThroat: Eric Idle is the biggest thing on Broadway since Noel Coward
J Piano: And Palin & Cleese were on SNL together a few years ago
klokwk-kool: bambi - i'm a lowly aquarius on the cusp with pisces so know where you're coming from... ;-)
principalPoop: and the other one, maybe 4
ah,clem: monty had larger exposure, but doubt they were as popular, at least in the US
freditor in exile: Eric Idle was on SNL
Dexter Fong: Night Warp2
freditor in exile: I'm lagging
Tweeno Williams: Bambi - Do you have Payne's new (and first solo) Cielo Norte? Fantastic.
DeepThroat: doi doi doi doi doi doi doi doi
llandfyll: Well, Idle is probably the best writer of them. Clees is the best actor. Palin is the funniest
J Piano: It's cool, Fred
freditor in exile: MP made reel movies
J Piano: Gilliam has TWO movies coming out this year - YAY!
principalPoop: have SNL invite the firesign theatre on
freditor in exile: Idle and innes in big time fued
Dexter Fong: JP et al: SNL is sketch comedy...FST doesn't really do sket ch comedy...though they can if they really want to
J Piano: Explain the feud, Fred
DeepThroat: I think FST should appear exclusively as the Fudds.
klokwk-kool: poop -- why the #$^% does FST have to be on SNL??
freditor in exile: Procotr and Bergman met Python at in NYC
DeepThroat: Sixty-something punk rockers
llandfyll: Chapman was the least funny. But he was a very good writer. Jones was the most eclectic. And Gilliam was the most grotesque
Dave : ISIRTA was better almost than Flying Circus, but the former was a radio show
principalPoop: I get to see them on ordinary tv
freditor in exile: truouble with Rutles
J Piano: Most people that watch SNL would not "get" Firesign
klokwk-kool: why not do something original? have FST replace Brian Williams on the 6:30 NBC network news...
DeepThroat: Chapman was Brian.
Dexter Fong: Dave: Whats isirta
freditor in exile: Bergman sniffs Charlie rose
J Piano: I thought that the Rutles thing had been sorted out...of sorts
principalPoop: they could dumb it down for SNL, they are professionals
Dave : that would be great, maybe add a little lightness to the depressing news
Tweeno Williams: Rutles was relly good. I haven't checked out the sequel, but I'd like to.
J Piano: I"m Sorry I'll Read That Again
ah,clem: as bill murray said some years ago, but SNL to sleep.
Dexter Fong: klok: why not have FST replace Brian Wilson in the Beacg Boys
llandfyll: no, you couldn't "get" FST on television. You have to listen to them. Over and over
J Piano: Anything is better than Mike Love
freditor in exile: yeah there was bad blood spilled about rutles song credits or something
klokwk-kool: I wonder how hard it would be, with the help of an insider, to hijack the satellite feed for half an hour...
freditor in exile: Gary Usher is dead
Dave : ISIRTA was really, I'm Sorry I'll Read that Again, a pre-python radio show with Cleece in it
DeepThroat: The Fudds have two songs. Just enough.
