cease: i'm putting up some pages on my seemreal site about the mag i helped create.
cease: really flahsed me back to the past
WesternStandard Tween: Similar to why B&W movies like Hitchcock don't colorize well.

Dave: so I've heard Cat, think I'll start by getting educated :)
Bunnyboy: "Don't let Turner near my movies with his crayons" - Orson Welles
WesternStandard Tween: Didn't know that stat Dave. That sucks big time.
Bunnyboy: I don't know if that's a completely accurate quote, but Orson was appalled by the early colorization processes.
cease: rightfuly so, bun
professorPoop: except for the months with an R in them
Dave: I know isn't it sad? now there might be other problems than just blindness, which is different, but if you're just sitting there not doing anything cause you can't see what's in front of you...then that's a problem in my book, I was at a convention earlier this summer and it's really amazing what some of these people have done with their lives

Dave: purple's a weird color

||||||||| It's 11:20 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| llanwydd - dead from The Plague
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
professorPoop: I know nothing
WesternStandard Tween: What's the premise of Red Shift?
professorPoop: accounting again, or driving or a third career? I heard 3 careers is not unusual now
doctecazoid: hi, back - just to say ttfn tho, dinner has been consumed and a fine time was had by us all.
WesternStandard Tween: Another trucking gig. He was fairly optomistic.
WesternStandard Tween: Hey Doc.
professorPoop: super doc
doctecazoid: we're gonna watch 'ghost dog' as soon as daily show finishes
cease: the dalai lama is reincarnated as a microbe on mars. he's scopped up by a nasa craft and taken back to earth. then the really weird shit happens
doctecazoid: (jim jarmusch flick)
cease: doc is the producer. most of the firesigns and thier families star in it.
professorPoop: the hinduromeda strain?
doctecazoid: we rented coffee and cigarettes the other day, it's not bad - not plot, just a string of scenes between famous and not-so=famous people talking in diners, bars and restaurants over coffee and cigarettes
Dave: sorry was writing an email to people who are helping me with college, man I'm getting more excited about this, not as nervous as I was since I know my way around somewhat now
cease: i lloved down by law
professorPoop: cold comfort farm was a fun film
doctecazoid: anyway hafta take off now - lili said to say 'thanks again for all your kind wishes'
cease: but i dont think he has many stories to tell
professorPoop: when do classes start dave?
WesternStandard Tween: I've got a copy of the Daily Show where Jon "questions" some of the things the Administration has said about Iraq. A must-have if you're into Stewart. It's either Real or Quicktime format (I forget).
professorPoop: best wishes and courage, both of you!
WesternStandard Tween: Yours for the asking.
cease: best to you and lili, doc
doctecazoid: i'll check in again next week, when i hopefully can stay longer. good luck with your college experience dave.

cease: yes, stewart is fantastic
||||||||| doctecazoid departs at 11:24 PM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
Dave: classes start the 12th of Sept, I move in on the 5th of Sept, I'm trying to get my biology lab changed from Thursday 6 to 9 to like 3 to 5, basically so I can hopefully drop in on the chat, but I didn't tell the scheduling people the main reason, just said that would suck to have as a lab, which is the truth
professorPoop: my batteries have worn out again
professorPoop: they might be firesign fans, how old was the bureaucrat?
Dave: someone last week made a joke about me having a bio lecture at 9 in the morning, and now I have just that
professorPoop: that is soon
cease: you will benefit from university, dave.
WesternStandard Tween: Simply tell them that the Firesign Theatre says the class has to be rescheduled.
cease: your brian is young enough
Dave: oh no these people seem young, they wouldn't get fst
cease: dave, very very few people get firesign
Dave: yeah I wish I could say that, but they'd just look at me and wonder what the hell I was talking about
professorPoop: tell them you are blind and they must feel sorry for you
Dave: I've noticed, they're all on here
WesternStandard Tween: Not all of FST is time-topical.
Dave: nope, no one must feel sorry for me
professorPoop: I know, but they don't know that lol
WesternStandard Tween: Have you been blind since birth, Dave?
Dave: yeah they do they're the disabilities people
Dave: yes I have
professorPoop: use it to your advantage when you can, we need you in chat
cease: but youre smarter than most sighted people, dave
professorPoop: oops, I thought it was just the scheduling people
WesternStandard Tween: There are many types of vision, and many types of blindness ;
Dave: I'm very excited, got all the books for my English class, they should arrive soon, except the one that's getting scanned, anyone ever read anything by Hugh Kenner? he seems to be an analyst of the modernist era and things of that nature
professorPoop: yes tween
Dave: well I don't know about that Cat, I'm smart is some areas and stupid in others just like everyone else
cease: i mean that in the context of this chatg, dave
Dave: ah ok, well...thanks I guess
professorPoop: I loved college, I went for about 9 years for my undergraduate, close to degrees in 10 different majors
cease: the ffiresing do their stuff to make us smarrter
cease: with you and the rest of us, they succeed, eh?
Bambi: thanks Clem!
professorPoop: they do make us think
Dave: wow! I can't do that, this university is very very expensive, the parents said they'd pay for 4 years
WesternStandard Tween: Indeed, thanks Clem.
professorPoop: yes thanks ahh clem, my batteries wore out :( toad away maybe
cease: when i went ot university, it was cheap
professorPoop: virignia tech was medium expensive, I think my dad was happy to have me away from home
cease: most canuck unviersty studnets had summer jobs that paid for their winter university.
WesternStandard Tween: Unfortunately, it's like talking about the Marx Bros or WC Fields. There may be imitators, but I can't see anyone picking up the torch when they're gone.
Bambi: lol pP
Dave: this is about 37 thou a year including tuition, books, room and board, the whoe bit, yes there are more expensive ones but this is up there
cease: tween, you mean no one can pick up firesing torch?
ah,clem: good night everyone!
WesternStandard Tween: Bye Clem...

WesternStandard Tween: Yikes, Dave. That ain't chump change.
professorPoop: you still have law school after undergrad, another 4 or 5
professorPoop: ouch dave ouch

professorPoop: ouch for the 37 thousand beans dave
WesternStandard Tween: Bye Bambi...
Dave: oh yeah, but I've gotten some scholarships for it
||||||||| Catherwood leads ah,clem into the room, accepts an I.O.U. as a gratuity, mumbles something about 11:38 PM, then departs.
||||||||| 11:39 PM -- ah,clem left for parts unknown. (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
WesternStandard Tween: So where are the boyz? Come one Austin, long in...
professorPoop: I never could have hid in college for as long as I did

WesternStandard Tween: I'm not a drinkin' man on duty Mr. Cox, I swear to hell I saw it.

cease: did you see the flick, tween?
cease: elaine showed it to me when i met her in nyc
WesternStandard Tween: Red Shift, cease?

professorPoop: I can do cary grant, judy judy judy
cease: well the groucho of my play was 16 and dave now too old, but he can fake a 16 year old, i think\
professorPoop: just like the rest of us dave
Dave: I'm 18, not much different, you mentioned that to me when I was 16 though
WesternStandard Tween: On the day in question, where were you when you arrived at the scene of the crime?
cease: my play is based on my family histoyr, 2 of my uncles escaped the russian navy in sf at the time of the quake. then things really get interesting
WesternStandard Tween: Sounds pretty cool, cease.
professorPoop: how many marx brothers did they have, 4 I thought
Dave: yeah that does sound cool
cease: yes i;m too lazy on that, dave. i must finish it soonest. problem is i'm getting jmore into visual, flowers, etc
professorPoop: will you have the quake scene, like atlanta in gone with the wind?
WesternStandard Tween: I thought 3, but then maybe I'm confusing them with the Stooges.
cease: i'll give myself a deadline of the end of this year then. you'll play 16 year old but well seasoned groucho, in 1906 sf
cease: no, the quake occurs at sea
professorPoop: at least 4, maybe more

WesternStandard Tween: Wonder is the Russians are sorry they sold AK for a few mil.

WesternStandard Tween: It's his first solo album, just released. You wife would probably like it.+
WesternStandard Tween: Well guy, I guess that's it for this chat. Se ya next week, and best of luck with school.
||||||||| At 12:07 AM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, WesternStandard Tween!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
Dave: I'm gonna vanish then too I guess, layter all until next weak
||||||||| "12:07 AM? I'm late!" exclaims Dave, who then rushes out through the french doors and down through the brambles.
||||||||| switch enters at 2:50 AM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and scurries off to the Chapeau Manger.
||||||||| Catherwood says "2:52 AM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs switch by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
||||||||| 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."
