Dave : wait, Brian why is Catherwood an hour behind? did the time zone just change for the hell of it?
||||||||| Catherwood says "It's precisely 9:01 PM!"
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: the lastest "In Our Time" is about the K-T boundary; I'll be d/l it later tonight (they're only up as MP3 for a week)
principalPoop: only 19? she seemed older

al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: she was older
Bambi: Terri Garr was only 19 on Star Trek Tweeny? Boy that really dates things doesn't it LOL
Dexter Fong: Catherwood eat it
||||||||| Catherwood rushes alongside Dexter Fong and says "Did you want me?"
Warpspeed: daydreams
cease: as son in law's girlfriend says, its a real page turner
principalPoop: eat it raw catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood steps over to principalPoop and asks "Did you need me?"
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: yeah, cat, I read that book very quickly ;-)
Bambi: I remember that episode very clearly as I do most of them :-)
Elayne: Someday when I have a job in Manhattan and can commute by public transit again, I'll read books once more...
cease: its oddly confluent with that entheogenesis conference i recently attended. about hidden knowledge
Warpspeed: Hi bambi!
Dexter Fong: afk for a bit
TX Tweeny: The Human League. Don't you want me?
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: I think that ep. was supposed to be spun off as a separate series, Bambi
Bambi: Hey Warp :-)
principalPoop: is that where Spock gives a spock on the shoulder to Kirk and becomes Pickard?
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: perhaps shortly after the rest of the cast knocked off Shatner...
principalPoop: ok fong
Warpspeed: then turned into some silcon life form
Bambi: was really hoping it would be Tweeny ... it would have been a fun one
Warpspeed: or silicone enhancements, I forget
Dave : I love ST, but NG is my favorite series
Bambi: Gary Seven
Warpspeed: why not TP?
Bambi: not sure if it was actually spelled that way though
TX Tweeny: I hear ya, Bambi...
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: yeah, that was him. some kind of sched conflict or something, Bambi
Elayne: Must go, yawning too much to see the screen.
Elayne: Next week, all!
||||||||| At 9:05 PM, Elayne rushes out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: it'll be in us.imdb.com in the ep-by-ep Star Trek cast list, I'm sure

TX Tweeny: A solar powered spacecraft launched from a Russian sub ICBM? First Contact, anyone?
Bambi: night Elayne!
Dexter Fong: Clem, are you fishing for compliments?
Dave : I liked that movie
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran always liked the SNL ep with Shatner where he finally pops a cork and tells a fan to "get a life"...
principalPoop: he was, he is shameless
Warpspeed: compliments ah, clem
cease: the book was better, dave
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: tweeny -- they think they are hearing noises
Dexter Fong: Tweeny: Space craft didn't achieve orbit...booster rocket failed
Dave : yeah that was funny, "it's just a TV show!"
Bambi: we have it on VHS ... taped from canadian cband (cbc) years ago
cease: sagan's only fiction, i think
TX Tweeny: Keep trying, Cal & Cosmo...
Dave : star trek books are hard to come by in braille, but haven't tried tape, got too much else to read
principalPoop: they should have spent money and put a cellphone in the sailship for near earth
cease: i thought you were talking about carl sagan's book/flick "contact"
Dexter Fong: Trojan worms???Whoa!! How man Greeks can fit in the stomach of a giant worm?
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: they only spent $4 million, and the Russians have lots of old ICBMs left
TX Tweeny: There's aplace to volunteer reading books to blind & dislexic here in Austin. Is it worth volunteering?

Warpspeed: keep you PC clean of windows
Warpspeed: I mean
cease: i have half a dozen of his books. fine writer
Dave : yes please do if you're a good reader, some of those readers are absolutely terrible, but if you like reading alout please do it
TX Tweeny: So you don't use "books on tape" from the local library?
Dexter Fong: Keep your windows clear of Poly-Carbonates
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: Shatner's song "Has Been" on the CD of the same name is worth hearing, though
Dave : yeah I do just have a lot on my shelf from the talking book people
TX Tweeny: They taught me "Expression" class when I was in grammar school. I don't mumble, and wouldn't.
Bambi: I like some of the audio from Gutenberg Project ... Sherlock Holmes and stuff like that...lots of fun.
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies Donk in through the front door at 9:10 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: Dave -- a Books on Tape SF I really enjoyed was Niven's Rainbow Mars -- sends up every Mars S-F and fantasy cliche ever, plus a goodly amount of Earth history.
Bambi: the human read ones
Dexter Fong: Sorry Mr. Tweeny, we need a "mumbler" for this part
TX Tweeny: I needn't add to the author's intention.
principalPoop: people in the north think I am from the south, and people in the south, think I am from the north, I have a strange accent
Dexter Fong: Hee Haw Donk
Dave : oh yeah there are some great readers, but the RFB stuff I've gotten has not been that great, but it's still better than paying a reader which can get expensive
cease: i'd like to thear that.
TX Tweeny: I don't need a Maginot Line.
Donk: hey Dexter et al
principalPoop: war and peace, read by buddy hacket
principalPoop: honk honk donk
Bambi: was that for the bus schedule announcer Dex or the fast food restaurants? ;-)
Dexter Fong: Dave: I can read...read your mind, that is
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: Dave - the Books on Tape I've listened to are read by professional actors or readers; many are quite good
Warpspeed: hi Donk
Dave : shit that' like 20 vols in braille, haven't read it for that reason
Donk: hey Warp
TX Tweeny: Been meaning to check them out for years. If they're berks, I won't have anything to do with the recordings. How about me reading "Life on the Mississippi"?
Dave : yeah i've read some great stuff, unfortunately my tastes are a bit...obscure at times
Bambi: hey Donk :-)
principalPoop: that would wear your fingers down to a nub
Warpspeed: sup?
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: traffic jams have been a great boon to the blind, I think, 'cause sighted people are buying commercial books on tape to listen to and then donating them to libraries
Donk: hey Bambi
Dave : the SATs were bad man, my fingers were numb after reading so much
principalPoop: I love audio books
Dexter Fong: Klok: Nice insight...BTW I think that the economic downturn seems to have put a lot of sign painters outta work
boney: I love chicken-fingered glints.
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: yeah, I just wish the library would get new ones -- they are concentrating on CDs now, and I don't have a portable CD I can wear while walking

Warpspeed: convert them to mp3?
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: warp - I thought about it, but it takes too much work
Dave : I have Cat, *smiles*
Warpspeed: have someone do it for you
principalPoop: they made me late for work though, I would sit in the car to finish a chapter
cease: only know the flick but i can see how it owuld make a great audio expereince
boney: I've got Al Franken's Lying Liars and the Lying Lies They Lied on tape.
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: and mp3 players are still coming down as flash gets cheaper, makes no real sense to buy one yet
Dexter Fong: Life is like a box of tapes...you never know if you're on side "a" or side "b"
TX Tweeny: Well, the cat's in the kettle at the Peking Moon....
boney: Er, CD.
Donk: fst question: what record was "straight people" on?
cease: i heard the last 2 michael moore books on tape
principalPoop: everybody is from taipai?

cease: just before i came to chat, i was pushing a lawnmower up a hill. i felt the same way about geometry
cease: yes this is dear freinds. i just forget the year
Dexter Fong: Cat: Don't worry, that's not on the test
cease: the dear friedns last week was one i was not familiar with at all. i thought i had them all on tape
Dexter Fong: CAT: Me neither

al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: cat -- actually, we are paying Halliburton thru the nose to feed our troops extraordiarily well. Alaska King Crab and such. $25/meal per soldier or US gov't civilian

cease: hence, the hero sandwich?
Dexter Fong: pP: Will you be joining the 1 million man lubricant march?
Donk: afganistan? you can't get there from here
Merlyn: I'd let it slide if I were you
cease: now bin ladin's supposed to be in iran
principalPoop: it is the 1 million robot march, and it will be exactly 1 million robots not more or less
cease: maybe they can smuggle him back to sudan. then the us would have a reason for stopping the genocide in darfur
Merlyn: No, that's the 1000000 robot march, which is just 64 robots
Dave : ok back full time or thyme now
llanwydd: Where could bin Laden possibly hide in Iran?
cease: in bush's imaginiaiton\
Bambi: and would that be kinda like the 1 mile of cars in the movie Used Cars with Kurt Russel?
Dave : stop things we're not involved with? who ever heard of such a thing
Donk: if we had put enought troops in afganistan to begin with, we would probably have bin laden
cease: no rosemary, dave?
Dexter Fong: pP: That outlaw group..the human robots has threatened to join the march..what measure are you taking
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: after all the Shiites his boys have knocked off in Iraq, he may not be that "welcome"
principalPoop: that was a super movie
Dave : nope, like parsley more
llanwydd: I think Bush could easily abdicate
principalPoop: I do not own an ipod, I do not trust them, pods, tomatoes, it all fits together
Donk: he never was welcome in iraq, that's why we had no business invading iraq
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: donk -- Dear Leader outsourced it to the warlords
llanwydd: Not that I want Cheney for president
Donk: yep
Bambi: I am partial to sage personally
Dexter Fong: pP: Also have reports the GEICO Robot al Martyr Consortium will cause problems

Dexter Fong: llan: BUSH WOULD NEVER ABDICATE>>CANNOT (sorry) admit he's wrong about anything
Dave : but then, to kind of bring up a point, won't all hell break loose there? or looser than it is
llanwydd: I agree, dex
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: Dave -- how can it get worse?

Bambi: crying over spilt milk does no one any good. Let's get this done and get the hell out of there before we lose more troops.
Dave : yeah but we haven't been attacked since we went in, not that that makes it right
principalPoop: save some Bush jokes for President Jeb Bush everybody.... do not waste them all now
cease: the swiss and the belgians get along, the iraqis can too, if they so desire, in separate cantons and such
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: fun things to note this week: a bunch of articles in The Economist about the housing bubble and today's news about oil hitting $60/barrel
Dexter Fong: Bambi: You are assuming "they" want to get it done quickly
cease: maybe separate countries. the slovaks and czechks, the assorted yugoslavs.
llanwydd: bambi, I'm afraid Iraq is a permanent holocaust
Dave : oh yeah well that's another matter, Kerry was definitely Not the answer, the dems need a strong candidate
Dexter Fong: Cat: Deport the Iraqi's to China?
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: he was better than Bush, just demonized up the wazoo
Dave : look at me spouting bullshit and really wondering if it's all worth it
principalPoop: that was a close election, Ohio would have swung it
Bambi: what housing bubble ... no one's gonna want to buy house/land anymore ... for fear it will be taken because of the supreme court decision...
Donk: i wish we could get it done and get out of there, but i'm afraid we just have to get out of there
Dave : I wish'd I coulda voted in the election
Bambi: Dave ... you are right!
cease: hows it goin, bun?
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: If Syria and Iran were smart, this is the time they should agree to allow their Kurdish regions to join an independent Kurdistan
Bunnyboy: Dex: Hey, here's treats for your loved ones: Shout Factory has recently released SAMPLER sized (2 ep) discs of SCTV. Modestly priced, for your immodest friends and family.
Dexter Fong: Swining Ohio...love that icon
Dexter Fong: Swine-ing?

Dexter Fong: No, Swinging
Bunnyboy: I just picked up the first 4 eps for a pal's birthday gift.
Dexter Fong: and thnks Bunny for the heads up
cease: yeah well there's not a lot of smartness going around, klok
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: calm down Bambi! ;-) They've been doing that since the '60s for Urban Renewal, remember?
Bambi: I would vote democrat if there was a REAL moderate candidate
Donk: does anyone here wonder why the rest of the world hates us?
Dave : I like shout factory, but there stuff is expensive
principalPoop: hates and envies us, it is good to be king
Donk: it's dangerous to be the king
Dexter Fong: klok: Just uh 'cause you Mayor of Terroran, you don't get to decide uh
Bunnyboy: Dex: Yeah, the discs are the eps and features found on Discs 1 and 2 of the SCTV Network 90 Vol. 1 box set. Polynesian Town, Leave it to Beaver, etc.
principalPoop: bush does not care, watch F 911 again, giggling before announcing the iraq war
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: well, that's what they did; the mayor condemned "slums" and then sold the land (reclaimed at public expense) to his buddy developers
Dexter Fong: Bambi: A moderate Dempcrat is like a liberal republicaan
principalPoop: he is having fun
Bambi: I don't believe it is Dex ... the two sides have gone way too far on each side ... it is what is ripping this country apart.
Bunnyboy: Dave: The new sampler SCTV discs list at $15 U.S. apiece. Not bad for 3 hours plus features!
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran recently watched Fog of War and it was the same problem
principalPoop: the internet could shift this next election, more and more are shifting from the mainstream media
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: no one who would bring troops home immediately could get elected
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: so we lost another 15,000 young men while Nixon played games
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
cease: id like to see that, klok
Dexter Fong: Bambi: You've been conned by the right wing "noise machine" ..fact is the right controls so much in this country they've convinced averone that the left controls everything
cease: my defacto son in law just gave me the corporation. i'll have to watch that first. it'll be like adbusters all over again
al-Klok,mayor-o'tehran: yeah, Poop, did you see the Huffington thing that Tweeny sent, the one that listed the number of stories on Michael Jackson vs Iraq?
Bunnyboy: Hey, everybody! Sadaam hates Froot Loops!

cease: i loved his old tv show
principalPoop: I was too young, I have seen some replays, a genius....
Donk )
Dexter Fong: pP: Mantovanni
Dexter Fong: ?
principalPoop: mano-manochevitz
Dave : I like some big band stuff, Ellington of course, ah good we're talking about music now *smiles*, but really Glen Miller's stuff just gets to sound the same or so it seems, Goodman on the other hand has his ways with an orchestra
cease: the greatr thing abouthis show was the level of discussion. it was educational in the best sense of the word.
cease: carson was like that occasionally. i cant imagine leno or leterman though
principalPoop: yeppers, I miss johnny :(
Bubba's Brain: John Goodman directs, too?
Dexter Fong: Dave: Mille Band was always a very commercial band..(Jazz not encouraged)...Goodman, Dorsey and others quite different
principalPoop: is that george wendt from cheers? Norm...
Dexter Fong: Cat: Dunno about Letterman's educational aspect but he's bery clever, very quick, very funny
cease: true, dex. just not in the jack par way
Bubba's Brain: Gonna cut out early. Later all.
principalPoop: his work ethic, and leno's also is amazing...
||||||||| Catherwood says "10:48 PM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs Bubba's Brain by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
Dexter Fong: Night Bubba
principalPoop: ciao BB
Dave : very true Dex, they all had the sofistication but Goodman and Basey really had It, whatever It is, not familiar with Dorcy stuff although I should be
Donk: in the 40's the big bands became too main stream, the 30s as the golden age of big band jazz i think
Dave : I don't like Lenno, and I can't spell any of their names correctly sorry about that
Donk: lol
Dexter Fong: Cat: True also =), Jacl Paar was *really* diiferent..watching him was like watching a car crash....almost....sometimes....(you never knew)
principalPoop: Les Brown and his band played at my brothers wedding reception, early 1970s...
cease: the way he'd dissolve, yeah. but he had great guests
cease: my piano techer used to play with les brown and bob hope
Donk: yeah i love parr, i never saw him on the tonite show, but watched him every week on his friday nite prime time show on nbc
principalPoop: that jazz and swing jazz and cool jazz does not tickle my fancy
Dexter Fong: Dave: Interesting thing about the Dorsey Brothers band, they and a lot of the sidemen all came out of the Bix Beiderbecke, Frankie Trumbauer "Wolverine Band" group
principalPoop: play some piano for us cat
Dave : anything Miles did is fine with me, I like a lot of types of music if done well
principalPoop: I am eclectic
Dexter Fong: pP: Les Brown..a very good and professional group...not a "swinging" "hot" band but very good ind3eed
Dave : man Dex I didn't know that, there is a 12 volume set of Bix things, his complete works, but they want 50 bucks a piece on amazon for them
cease: maybe vicne guarladi's worst album. but maybe not
Donk: jme too Dave i like Miles wether main stream or hard core stuff
Donk: i think every one here is eclectic ppoop
principalPoop: yes they are
Dave : eclectic shitheads we all are,
Donk: i missed what's vince guarladi's wors lp
principalPoop: hehe he said hard core hehe
principalPoop: shitheads? nooo, just bozos on this bus
principalPoop: and a bozoette, pardon bambi
Dexter Fong: Dave: While there's a lot of Bix being offered..the thing is they were at most 3 minute records so almost all Bix's solos were 4 ot 8 or maybe 16 vars...a few 32 bar solos...so having the complete Bix doesn't neccessarily mean a lot
Donk: hmm we should start a club "elcectic shitheads of america, and maybe canada"
Dave : what I find fascinating is that orchestras from the '40s or '30s could just take a modern tune and learn it rapidly to play on the radio, I mean like take Phil Harris's orchestra, they would just get a new tune every week it seems
principalPoop: think big, eclectic shitheads of the world
principalPoop: I thought he was sargent bilko
Dave : yes Dex but it's the principle of the having of the solos that is important
Dexter Fong: Dave: First..they were usually good readers..second, the arrangements were usually very simple
Donk: bix recorded in the mid to late 20's i think so a 2 minute 78 was the nom 12 inch disks were usually reserved for classical, but sometimes allowed for jazz recordings
Dave : I thought about the first of those, but not the second Dex, true though, ah sometimes I just need to put the pieces together
cease: no, poop. the world is currently run by rather single minded individuals
Donk: norm
cease: whatever you might say about bush, it would not be eclectic.
Dexter Fong: Dave: If you're talking about how Bix took the "solo statement" to the next step after Armstrong ...certainly, it was extstreamly importrant
principalPoop: I thought trying to make a bassist play solo for as long a pianist or someone on a horn was silly
principalPoop: we will take over the world cat, new shitheads in charge, who are eclectic
Dave : then you've never herad Coltrane's latter work, 12-minute bass solos there, and yes to your comment Dex from what I've heard he knew what he was doing, beautiful tone
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Dexter Fong: pP: If the Bassist has more to say than the horn player(s) or Pianist...then play on I say
Dave : ah see what I've done, maybe I've started the Shithead Movement! all 1 member
principalPoop: I heard his early work, blue train, I have the record, the poor bass is struggling to keep up, maybe just him
Donk: i like coltranes avante gaurd stuff
principalPoop: not just ordinary shitheads, eclectic shitheads, and we are proud
Dexter Fong: Well Dear Friends, time for the weekly ceremony called parking the car...night to those who leave and hope to rejoin
cease: i was way in to coltrane at one time, unfortunately it was when he died
cease: by dex
cease: yeah i should go too
principalPoop: good luck, have a good week fong

||||||||| Donk - dead from jaundice
||||||||| 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..
