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 December 01, 2005 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| 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 Firebroiled disembarks at 10:17 AM.
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Firebroil inside, makes a note of the time (10:20 AM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Firebroiled: Newsgroups: alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre
Firebroiled: check out Taylor's post about Dear Friends
||||||||| Firebroiled says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, Firebroiled exits at 10:23 AM.
||||||||| It's 10:30 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Firebroil - dead from The Plague
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| 12:07 PM: llanwydd jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past year and a half!"

Woody One: Howdy pardners. In case I may not pop by either. My wife says "more sugar."
||||||||| Catherwood says "7:24 PM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs Woody One by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Woody One in through the front door at 7:25 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
||||||||| Woody One leaves at 7:25 PM, singing "Oh, I'm just a little fishy, floating in the sea, and there ain't no hook that's smart enough to catch the likes of me..."
||||||||| Merlyn steals in around 8:56 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last month's "unpleasant incident."
Merlyn: hmm, time is still off
||||||||| Catherwood escorts ah,clem in through the front door at 8:58 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
Merlyn: Hey clem
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and pipes up "Announcing 'Dexter Fong', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 7:59 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...

||||||||| Catherwood mys Dexter Fong's your are more confused than ever.
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Tweeno's Paradise close behind, mumbles something about disrupting his 8:01 PM tree-stunting plans, and dashes off to the vestibule.

||||||||| Catherwood says "It's exactly 8:01 PM!"
Dexter Fong: Hi Tweeny

||||||||| Catherwood gets AntiSanta_Gomez a hairy bush then impeach it.
Merlyn: after a few drinks
Tweeno's Paradise: Heard an interview with Vidal where he said making a war on terror is nonsensical. Like declaring war on bad temper or dandruff.
Merlyn: catherwood's grammar is older than he is

Merlyn: Catherwood, go stand in the corner

klokwkdog: more than a feeling was one name for it
Bubba's Brain: It's alive.... alive!
klokwkdog always wondered what happened to Christopher Cross
Tweeno's Paradise: Still liked what the founder was doing. Custom-builds a 12-tk and invents a rock "sound", if you will.
Dexter Fong: "It's a living thing..."
Bubba's Brain: He sailed away....
Dave: oh my god my best friend is telling me these names of alcoholic drinks, and she's like so conservitive

Tweeno's Paradise: Put down that pickle!
klokwkdog: Tweeny -- on the latest This Week in Tech, Leo talks about the founder of Heil mikes. He hates condenser mikes. Says no power should be on the cable. His mikes are all dynamic. He used to engineer for the Dead and most of the big '70s bands.
Bubba's Brain: A sloe gin fizz works mighty fast, when you drink it by the pitcher and not by the glass. Uh huh.
principlePoop: http://www.freedrinkrecipes.com/cocktails-drinks-recipes/slowscrewupagainstthewall-drink-recipe.html
Dexter Fong: afk for a secondo

Bubba's Brain: Where can that be found, klok?
principlePoop: the world is a different place with the internet and google
cease: klok i got email from that webiste you told me about
Tweeno's Paradise: Have to check that out Klok. Saw the Dead at RFK in DC when they were using the big stack sound system w/no amps or monitors. Pretty impressive how they used two mics physically off-phase to cancel feedback.

klokwkdog: Excellent film, except Hughes was about 6'2" and weighed 150 lbs. DiCaprio is about 5'4"...
principlePoop: the gods have lost their way
Tweeno's Paradise: They found a coke bottle and didn't know what to do with it.
cease: if there were gods, they would have ways
klokwkdog: Tween - the best part is the #2 disc with a complete rundown on Hughes life via newsreels and interviews
principlePoop: I saw that movie, throw it off the edge of the earth
cease: they would BE ways
bonemeister: Johnny Depp is about the same height as DiCaprio, but he could have played Howard Hughes
Dave: well it is time for me to depart I think
klokwkdog: Tween -watch it for Blanchett, who steals the movie. Cate is Hepburn
klokwkdog: nite Dave!
Dave: so I will talk to people next week I guess, bye then

principlePoop: no departing until the chat has come to full stop, ciao dave
cease: see you next week, dave
principlePoop: watch out for evil conservative influences
klokwkdog: Tween. I read reviews that Beckensdale is a crummy Ava Gardner, but I think she did a pretty damn good job. Baldwin is OK as Juan Tripp.
bonemeister: Gurgle search: keyword chronos
principlePoop: juan tripp, was he on the dwarf album?
klokwkdog: Alda works hard at Brewster, but I'm just so darn tired of Alda for some reason that I couldn't get into it
cease: west wing?
klokwkdog: yeah, Poop -- he was the character who played the TWA "head"
klokwkdog: don't watch it, Cat. I knew there was a reason...
principlePoop: hehe he said head hehe
bonemeister: Alda should try drama. The wacky comedy of West Wing is tiresome, week in and week out
Tweeno's Paradise: Hope you've got an east wing to go with that, cat.
cease: no i like the west wing
cease: also 6 fet under and the sopranos, only us tv drama i watch
principlePoop: is west wing still on? I thought it was only repeats on 5 difference cable channels
klokwkdog: Tween -- like Al Capone, Hughes was pretty strange, but one interesting thing is that he treated blacks like he did whites (so did Capone).
Tweeno's Paradise: If I put the TV back up, it's going to be because of West Wing and PBS Now.
klokwkdog: LOL, Bone
Tweeno's Paradise: Color blindness is about experience.
bonemeister: Besides, who could compete with the madcap antics of Bush? Buster Keaton, maybe
klokwkdog: Tween -- Hughes was born in 1905 Houston and raise there, so it's somewhat amazing
Tweeno's Paradise: That's great. Who would play the lead in "Bush, The Movie"?
principlePoop: jimmy cagney?
cease: the devil
bonemeister: The Brits are working on a remake of The Prisoner, which could be the kookiest thing since Monty Python
klokwkdog: Tweeny -- I think the bidding for the lead in that movie would go quite high! They'll have to troll Hollywood to find some really down-on-luck actor who'll agree to the role and have to pay them a fortune.
Tweeno's Paradise: Stan & Ollie as Bush & Cheney. Well, here's another fine mess...
klokwkdog: bone - is that going to be set in Guantanamo?
principlePoop: super song and dance man, and always evil in dramas
Tweeno's Paradise: I'd love to see them do The Prisoner again.
klokwkdog: LOL Tweeny

klokwkdog: McGoohan is still alive, isn't he? Is he involved? Or just pissed?
bonemeister: McGoohan lost the rights
cease: i really hope there is no Prisoner #2
cease: it owuld suck so badly
Tweeno's Paradise: Who is #1?
cease: the whole idea of a sequel is anti art
cease: the mona lisa, part 2?
bonemeister: Perhaps the remake should be about the investors in the original torturing McGoohan
klokwkdog: email sent to DocTech -- "We are still chatting at 11:30PM"

klokwkdog: ROFL (from The Register:
klokwkdog: Parker told me a story illustrating the need for process in application delivery. Apparently, the rear windshield specification for a certain German car included the ability to withstand impacts well over 120 km/hour. An obvious mistake, thought the commendably thorough engineers, even posh German cars can't travel that fast in reverse, and reduced it to something more reasonable. Unfortunately, the cars were to be shipped to the South of France at high speed by rail, packed on open tracks and facing backwards, and they all arrived with the rear windshields shattered. A bit of process might have encouraged the engineers to investigate that specification further before making an arbitrary correction.

klokwkdog: you'd think that some idiot would design simple reusable plywood shields to protect the cars (since the empty car carriers have to go back to Germany somehow) instead of wasting a fortune on 3" thick rear windshields. The story illustrates the stupidity of the companies and the people trying to use computers to correct it.
Dexter Fong: pP: What do you mean?

klokwkdog: trying to keep it up in our culture destroys them, one way or another
Tweeno's Paradise: I'll bet the woodstove business is pretty big in Van. Still, more temperate than most of CN from what I read.
klokwkdog: Tweeny -- the biggest business in Van is fluorescent fixtures
klokwkdog: once you have enough fluorescents in the basement, heating the house is not a real problem
Tweeno's Paradise: Like Sweden. No doubt...
Tweeno's Paradise: Land of the Midnight Sun. Or are we talking about the air force again?
klokwkdog: Tween - no, they're American. Gwen Stefani plays Jean Harlow in The Aviator, BTW. Some outtakes and set shots and video featuring her are on disc #2
cease: not true klok
cease: but i think we make more selling weed than wheat
klokwkdog: Cat - I thought Vancouver used 25% more electricity than other cities its size at that latitude
cease: america smokes mostly home grown, i think
cease: one can google that easily enough, klok
cease: we waste a fuck of a lot of energy
cease: most canucks too
||||||||| It's 12:20 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Dexter Fong - dead from the common cold
||||||||| principlePoop - dead from measles
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
cease: s fucking Cold here
Tweeno's Paradise: It's just stupid that mj is compared to a narcotic. Alcohol is much worse. It just happens to be legal.
cease: oh well
klokwkdog: most american home grown is grown orgaincally, not forced under Klieg lites like that imported Canadian stuff. All that remote land and transport costs money, so no wonder the US stuff costs a little more...
cease: us cheaper tha canuck? nah
Tweeno's Paradise: Way out of my league here.
cease: which league was that?
klokwkdog: and of course, the claim is that the Canadian gov't subsidizes the growers by setting artificially low bulk power rates, thus undercutting the American products
klokwkdog: Cat - the one with the field in Iowa
cease: bc has dams, hyrdo power galore. its not subsidized, its cheap
Tweeno's Paradise: Cool that Denver isn't going to arrest people for personal use anymore, though. It'll be a cold Tom Delay in Hell when TX does that.
klokwkdog: you see, I told you so
cease: you might see it your lifetime, tweeno
cease: hey ive seen it in mine. right here
klokwkdog does not care one way or another; doesn't use that stuff anymore. All those Canadian high-power fluorescents make strange chemicals in it
Tweeno's Paradise: Maybe. But Austin's really quite an island in an otherwise very conservative state.
cease: you sond so dismissmisve
cease: like something you "outgrew"
cease: so i assume, tween
klokwkdog: Tween -- yep, all the college kids and the legislature is there
klokwkdog: kind of like Raleigh in NC 25 years ago
cease: jim hightower, molly ivins, thats most of america's intelligencia right there
Tweeno's Paradise: We did manage to be one of the cities that passed a resolution not to conform to the Patriot Act.
klokwkdog: didn't outgrow cat, just kind of faded away ;-)
klokwkdog: good for you, Tweeny
cease: do you eat corn on the cob, klok?
klokwkdog: everything in my life has kind of faded away...
Tweeno's Paradise: Pretty enlightened governance locally.
klokwkdog: not any more, Cat
cease: not this chat, klok
klokwkdog: sometimes I buy the frozen shucked stuff
cease: what do you eat or drink, with an added ingredient, like sugar in coffee or butter on corn?
klokwkdog: cat - this chat came kind of late; give it time :-(
cease: an altering factor
klokwkdog: sugar is gone; I've switched to Equal, don't eat much butter anymore
cease: i was makkng a point about the chemicalization of reality, but it can weight
klokwkdog: OK
klokwkdog: Equal is pretty nasty stuff
Tweeno's Paradise: Been fun guys. Have a great week and maybe see you at the Saturday CNI chat. So long, until last time, again...
||||||||| At 12:29 AM, Tweeno's Paradise vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
cease: we add B to A because together they are palatable
cease: tween
klokwkdog: nite Tween
klokwkdog: yeah, well I've pretty much resisted all drugs the last couple decades
cease: its time for charlie rose, from detroit pbs
klokwkdog: they've tried very hard to get me started on a couple, but I won't submit to their control
klokwkdog: nite Cat
cease: your body knows what it needs. as does mine
klokwkdog: CU next week
cease: indeed
||||||||| cease is kicked out just as the clock strikes 12:30 AM.
klokwkdog: well, DT, you're left to Catherwood if U show...
||||||||| Catherwood rushes over to klokwkdog and asks "Typing my name just to rile me, eh?"
klokwkdog: good night Catherwood, please check me out now
||||||||| Catherwood checks klokwkdog out.
||||||||| klokwkdog rushes off, saying "12:31 AM? Mark Time is almost on! Where's a radio?"
||||||||| 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 Santa Anitaville Koooookamunga disembarks at 1:49 AM.
Santa Anitaville Koooookamunga: Damn! A day late and a dollar short...AGAIN!
Santa Anitaville Koooookamunga: Hey! It's a Nino!!! I haven't seen one of those in years. Cool!
||||||||| Santa Anitaville Koooookamunga leaves at 1:51 AM, singing "Oh, I'm just a little fishy, floating in the sea, and there ain't no hook that's smart enough to catch the likes of me..."
||||||||| Santa Anitaville Koooookamunga enters at 1:53 AM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and runs off to the Hat Pack Annex.
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood snorts derisively: "1:55 AM and late as usual, it's Zusu''s petals, just back from Elmertown."
||||||||| 1:55 AM -- Zusu''s petals left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
||||||||| It's 2:00 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Santa Anitaville Koooookamunga - dead from measles
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| 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."
