Merlyn: 7+25?
cease: you?
principalPoop: or length of the vaulting pole
CommieMartyr: (waiting with baited breath) (i'm eating sardines)
llanwydd: I tested recently at 129. That makes me slightly sub-Mensa, I believe
llanwydd: but who knows if it could go up like the price of gas
Merlyn: gas-powered IQ tests
Bunnyboy: The working title is FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION, and is set around a bigwig Hollywood producer, who has a stinkeroo film that has inexplicably (perhaps even undeservedly) been nominated for 3 Academy Awards.
cease: isnt that a church? the chruch of the submensa? submarine bob and all
principalPoop: never took the mensa test, 99% verbal GRE, way below the curve for commonsense however
Merlyn: he wears a wig?
Bunnyboy: And the producer is being played by....Ricky Gervais, co-creator and star of the original BBC series, THE OFFICE.
CommieMartyr: I wadded my test up, caught it on fire, and threw it at the teacher.
BuzzTweenhunger: Great to hear Bush telling eveybody to conserve fuel. Don't recall him recinding the incentives to buy Hummers and such, though.
cease: i thought he was a democrat. the wigs are so passe
Bunnyboy: Bob Balaban's in that, too.
CommieMartyr: Bush wont never cut it in a cardigan
cease: sounds like the firesign doing filipinos
principalPoop: I know the small town play movie and the might wind movie, I forget the name of them
Merlyn: Speaking of hummers, there is now spray-on mud for city dwellers' 4x4s: http://www.guardian.co.uk/print/0,3858,5215084-111400,00.html
cease: bang a lang, a gong, a cheech, a chong
Bonemeister: Harry Shearer? Michael McKean? Will they be in the movie?
Merlyn: and can we spray mud on them?
CommieMartyr: ...and Jerry Mathers as the Heaver
Bonemeister: Sorry about the lag.
cease: hey ah clem, play some more stuff that WE DONT KNOW, like those hour shows. i may have them but they sure sound new to me
Bunnyboy: Glad to see NBC news pulled back the curtain tonight on Der Resident's latest "Quiz Show" attempt at a "spontaneous conversation" with a group of soldiers overseas.
BuzzTweenhunger: I believe we have truly crossed th line into social insanity on that one, Meryl.
CommieMartyr: All they gotta do is act naturally
principalPoop: no, that was done with pet rocks some time ago
cease: Deeer Friends
Bunnyboy: Bone: Shearer, McKean, Balaban, Guest, Levy, Catherine O'Hara, Jennifer Coolidge, Parker Posey, Fred Willard...as mentioned, the usual suspects.
BuzzTweenhunger: Good point, principal...
cease: john deere invents the tractor, enchants ukranians
principalPoop: cut the soles off your shoes, and you know the rest

Bunnyboy: If you got it, flaut it.
Bunnyboy: Not a typo.
principalPoop: who flautted?
cease: i was thinnig about firesign vs cheech and chong in terms of popularity at a point in time when they both had a large audience, 72
Bonemeister: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0470765/
Bunnyboy: It set the tone for the evening...
Merlyn: 72 isn't so large
BuzzTweenhunger: Ray Builds a Dog is one of my favorite XM clips.
cease: this came out in 73? 74? they were at the height of their powers and sherlock holmes was surely an attempt to appeal to a wider audience
principalPoop: can you imagine any of the 4 becoming respectable like cheech?
||||||||| Catherwood sneaks into the room, and intones "Announcing 'tor', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 10:25 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the Aviary...
llanwydd: cheech and chong was for the -100 IQ set
tor: howdy do
CommieMartyr: hemlock stones?
cease: haning out with mr chong after the flick, he's a real smart guy and very funny, but he just isnt in the same galaxy as firiesign
tor: being meek, small letters
principalPoop: you never go broke underestimating lol
Bunnyboy: I remember Nat Lamp's RADIO DINNER tweaked both FST and Cheech and Chong. Chris Guest even had the FST ref:
cease: that explains why chng and cheech retain vast audiences the firesign never had and never will
tor: hemlock stones, where's my cup
CommieMartyr: llan, we call them bell curve bandits
BuzzTweenhunger: Hey tor...
principalPoop: hi tor
cease: yes nat lamp was very good in the late 70s
llanwydd: good one CM
cease: their sunday newspaper was so funny it could cause death by laughter
Bunnyboy: "Flight Girl, where's da "key" joke? I mean, the Firesign Theatre always had some off-the-wall joke about the "key", or the "lid" or the "mike"...drug reference?"
tor: a sunday comix ???????????
Bonemeister: the FST ref?
principalPoop: the funnies were indeed funny
CommieMartyr: Hey, i'm a big Trot's and Bonnie fan. My girlfriend looked just like trots.
tor: proaganda for - bet, drink, smoke, smoke, bet, drink, last one i read
cease: yes the firesign had tons of drug jokes, partic in their earliest days
Bunnyboy: And the Cheech and Chong question:
principalPoop: ahhh trots and bonnie, wow, a blast from the past
cease: but as i said on my review (which of course is at www.seemrealland.blogspot.com)
llanwydd: I was putting rock bands into the IQ category recently. I put the Led Zeppelin audience at about 100, Grateful Dead between 110 and 115 and Yes at any level above that
tor: but the last sunday comix moi viewed was a while ago
Bunnyboy: "If dope smoking doesn't damage your brain, how come so many teenyboppers think Cheech and Chong are funny?"
Bunnyboy: lo tor
cease: the firesign had more than one bullet in their arsenal. the chongcheech basically bong-bond
principalPoop: why do you think they call it dope used to cause waves of laughter
CommieMartyr: because the teenys don't know about sophisticated firesign drug humor
tor: you gotta your phuckin' mind, captain
tor: you ain't got laughs on your left, your right
Bunnyboy: Why do you think they call it Shit? HAW!
principalPoop: good luck ahhhh, clem

||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"Just Folks...A Firesign Chat" on '
cease: must be bc bud
CommieMartyr: wtf is wrong with notice?
Bunnyboy: Butterfly was a predominantly disco label. Don't think it was owned by the Firesigners, per se.
principalPoop: I was astounded disco was just a fad
Merlyn: had to fix the capital "I"
cease: one or more of the phils mentioned that it wasnt exactly a legit organization
llanwydd: monty python was just lucky though, weren't they? Right combiation of writers at the right time. That kind of humour wouldn't have caught on in the 80s
BuzzTweenhunger: I'm very happy that disco was just a fad.
Bunnyboy: cease: Tax shelter?
cease: you thihnk sok, llan?
llanwydd: BB, I read recently that Butterfly was firesign's own
CommieMartyr: Timing is everything
principalPoop: I slipped my disco dancing with you baby, the tubes world tour
cease: are the firesings prisoners of the 60s?
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and pipes up "Announcing 'Dexter Fong', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 10:32 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...

Bonemeister: http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20051013/pl_nm/bush_politics_dc&printer=1
llanwydd: I'm almost certain I read it on firesigntheatre.com in the reviews section
Bunnyboy: The Tubes were swell on The Fishin' Musician, back in the 80's.
Bonemeister: IQ 129 bingo!
Bunnyboy: cease: Ah, beat me to it...as usual.
Dexter Fong waves to Bone, Bunny, Tweeny, cat, CM, Ilan, Merl, pP, and tor
cease: is that his name-oh?
principalPoop: We wanted diversity, we will have the views of texas female cracker on the court
llanwydd: I realized last week that I remember some firesign gags that nobody knows because they were never recorded
Bunnyboy: Dex: I'm not sure if you're aware...all the NBC-era SCTV eps are now on disc.
BuzzTweenhunger: Think people are starting to have second thoughts about this "God told me to invade Iraq & Afghan", Bone?
Dexter Fong: Bunyy, Thanks I am aware
llanwydd: what I mean is that I remember an awful lot of the material from the show at Town Hall NYC in 1981
principalPoop: ahhh sctv was super, like the boys down the hall
llanwydd: so I'll tell you some of the jokes
CommieMartyr: well it's about time

tor: gad, i need to take an evelyn woodhead spëd readin' course
Bonemeister: Pocket Fisherman
tor: " What we all need is to wake into a life not so perilous to good dreamers."
llanwydd: Joey Demographico was on the Ben Bland show and he was asking Ben if it was possible he could have his own TV show some day. Ben said, "You're lucky to be on TV, son". And Joey said "So are you" and walked off the set
tor: that's a nice outro line
Bonemeister: the updated Pocket Fisherman is also a PDA
Bunnyboy: PP: I haven't caught up with Kids in the Hall, yet. But there are 2 seasons of their show on video, as well.
Bonemeister: and a wireless video player
principalPoop: there I was dreaming I was awake and then I woke up and found I was asleep
Bonemeister: and a cell phone
llanwydd: on his way out he said "Look at all this liquor behind the Mr. Coffee". Ben said "That's from the Sailor Bill Show"
Dexter Fong: You can have a phone in your cell?
Bonemeister: and holds 10.000 iTunes
CommieMartyr: a transistor and a large sum of money to spend
tor: *folger's theme begins to play*       the best part of wakin' up is goin' back to sleep
BuzzTweenhunger: The new Apple Video iPod looks pretty cool.
Bonemeister: how big is your hard disk?
principalPoop: that is a personal question boney, wrong chat room
CommieMartyr: I get no complaints
Dexter Fong: Don't tell him, he'll want to see it
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and announces "Announcing 'LiliLamont', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 10:40 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the sitting room...
principalPoop: give him a sleeve job
BuzzTweenhunger: Hey Lili...
Dexter Fong: Hey Lili =))

CommieMartyr: and we all had salad
Bunnyboy: Lili: Congratulations! Nothing but voluntary chemicals from now on!
LiliLamont: Doc's upstairs. But he's on his way down with his laptop so that he can join in the festivities.
Dexter Fong: thrown by creaures from the Blue Lagoon
BuzzTweenhunger: No need for a nightlight, eh Lili? Hope everything goes smoothly.
cease: how are you feeling, lili?
tor: did you see typoon longwang hit china, a couple of weeks, or so, ago
LiliLamont: Nope, I'll be able to read in the dark.
principalPoop: put some jiffypop under your arm, that will surprise them
Bunnyboy: There's nothing that makes voluntary drug consumption more passe' than compulsory drug consumption.
tor: as i've heard, chemo is most tough
CommieMartyr: All they had to say was typhoon Longwang, and I was paralyzed with laughter for about 45 minutes
cease: this really sounds like dear freinds
LiliLamont: cease: I'm feeling pretty well,except for the weird pains in my bones, joints, and muscles. They're a side effect of the chemo and of the shots I get for my white blood count. Luckily, I have a prescription for percoset if the pain keeps me up at night.

Bonemeister: always remember to retract the lure before answering the cell phone
CommieMartyr: Just ask for miss george

||||||||| At 10:45 PM, Dexter Fong vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
Bunnyboy: Lordy, I forgot that Mutt and Smutt had their debut on JUST FOLKS.
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "10:45 PM and late as usual, it's Dexter Fong, just back from New York."
tor: not long time, for longwang, but big time

doctecazoid: bb: i have the broadway cast album o 'you're a good man'
llanwydd: or was that lovely Rita, hurricane

Bunnyboy: Bone: Yeah, but Larry Sanders has been off the air for years.

CommieMartyr: Testify, Lili. It was on abc news too.

Bonemeister: "I'd like to stay--but I've gotta go" - Frazer Smith
LiliLamont: Commie: We took her to the vet and she got a shot. That was a week ago. Since then, Doc and I have been giving her nightly antibiotics in a needleless syringe. She still sounds like shit.
doctecazoid: bb: tools like v-vocal gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "we'll fix it in the mix"

LiliLamont: princi: When I can, I do. It got me through a stint in Paris for 4 months. French people were actually asking me for directions. And I don't even smoke Galoises or any other tobacco product.
llanwydd: I never read "Vanity Fair" but I always thought it was a wussy title
tor: till the kids (two of them) got their heads cut off

BuzzTweenhunger: Corona w/ lime, please, Catherwood.
||||||||| Catherwood strides over to BuzzTweenhunger and inquires "Would you like something?"

Dexter Fong: Lili: Not in many months
tor: foxskin, nope

klokwkdog hasn't seen many commercials this year, atoll
doctecazoid: cat: no, the filmmakers are still making changes to the print - but progress is being made. at least they're happy with what i've produced so far.

Dexter Fong: The third half

doctecazoid: bb: yeah, i'm trying to zero in on just what i need to know to do the music i am working on
Bunnyboy: It's been such a long exposition.
CommieMartyr: Kid comes strolling into camera view. He's hiking hills somewhere in Euro. Got this big hat made from a fox. He says, "When I told my folks I was going to Schmolmoberg, they said wear the foxskin hat?

LiliLamont: Hey, Dex. Is your contact info the same? I know I was going to get in tough with you and you wife, but with the chemo, I got a little distracted. I need to escape to the city before the radiation starts.
doctecazoid: hit me baby one more time
cease: i look like robert de niro, i drve a mitsubishi zero
Dexter Fong: Lili: It remains the same
Bunnyboy: Do you think the NPR execs didn't get PASS THE INDIAN, PLEASE because it didn't have the production polish of the JUST FOLKS version?
tor: your a tough chick, lili
principalPoop: I look like a mitsubishi zero and drive like de nero
CommieMartyr: ba dum bum
LiliLamont: Yes, tor, but I'm actually very sweet.

llanwydd: "Escape to the city". An expression I will probably never use. Don't even understand the concept
tor: robert de nero, love a bar named zero

principalPoop: cactus
LiliLamont: Dex: I'll look through my memos and give you a call.
cease: it sounded from austin etc that the relationship was already rocky, and i dont mean rococo

Dexter Fong: Please do Lili
doctecazoid: he was not the guy who made the deal with them to do the NPR material in the first place
CommieMartyr: You are all bell curve bandits! I can't believe no one got that.
BuzzTweenhunger: The politics of NPR may become rather un-neutral.
LiliLamont: Commie: this thing refreshes too quickly, and I'm drinking. Otherwise, I might have got that.
Dexter Fong: CM: Got what?
principalPoop: I am tone deaf commie
doctecazoid: NPR also has its own idea of its 'brand' or 'identity' - and i think the powers that be do not see what firesign does as fitting in with that identity
klokwkdog: all those contributions have corrupted NPR, absolutely
CommieMartyr: Lili gets a pass, the rest of you are stone cold slackers
llanwydd: It got past me too, CM. and I'm above 100
principalPoop: if you encourage people to ask too many questions you are just not any use to anybody

CommieMartyr: so you say

klokwkdog: ah, fallingStars is playing Toto's "Africa", the live cut from the Johannesburg show again
cease: they did a crisper version in an earlier album or show
Bunnyboy: I would posit...aw, hell, I'll just say it: The JUST FOLKS version has a better rhythm than the ALL THINGS FIRESIGN version. JUST FOLKS unfolds, ALL THINGS FIRESIGN rushes.
CommieMartyr: Watch out guys, the dwarf is almost gone
principalPoop: what is the news from johannesburg?
BuzzTweenhunger: Great tune...

CommieMartyr: I knew a guy named wayne stubbs
BuzzTweenhunger: Talk about parents having a sense of humor.

BuzzTweenhunger: That's a good point, Bun.
Bunnyboy: And her neighbor, Incontinentia Buttocks.
tor: *tries to hold in laugh*
doctecazoid: bb: to me, the Pass The Indian thing does not play well unless it's performed in front of an audience. the two versions i've heard done in front of audiences had much greater impact than either the just folks & npr versions.
cease: yes, i recall what a joke Take Shit (a) was
CommieMartyr: Soul singer Urethra Franklin
