||||||||| 6:06 AM: Firebroiled jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past half hour!"
Firebroiled: Live in the Future!
Yes, live in the Future, now!
It’s just around the corner.
Yes, in fact, it’s come right here to beautiful

||||||||| At 6:06 AM, Firebroiled vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!

||||||||| At 8:57 PM, Bightrethighrehighre vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and snorts derisively "Announcing 'ah,clem', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 8:58 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the anteroom...
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '" a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern time'
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, December 08, 2005 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
||||||||| Catherwood leads Stickman inside, makes a note of the time (9:03 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Stickman: Greetings!
Stickman: Oh God! I HATE that song!!
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies Bambi into the room, accepts three dimes as a gratuity, mutters something about 9:06 PM, then departs.
Bambi: hi Clem and Stickman
Bambi: lol
Stickman: Oh Bambi! I promise not to be mean to you. hehe
Bambi: lol
Bambi: lock your wigs!
||||||||| Merlyn steps in at 9:08 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.

Bambi: Hi Merlyn
Merlyn: Yer door knocker fell down, he's no fun
Bambi: put that obsidian door knocker back! ;-)
Stickman: Damn! My shoes are deflated again.

Stickman: This song is giving me a headache.
||||||||| WheezeSqueezer steps in at 9:10 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
Bambi: lol
Stickman: Squeezee! How ya doin'?
Bambi: hi WheezeSqueezer
Bambi: lost another door knocker lol
Stickman: I used to squeeze the wheeze when I was a young man. Alas...
||||||||| At 9:11 PM, WheezeSqueezer vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
Merlyn <honk>
Stickman: I guess he squeezed it too hard.
Bambi: lol
ah,clem: hi everyone
Bambi: Nimo is such a boggler
Stickman: Hiyas, Ah,Clem.
Bambi: how has your week been?
Merlyn: After CNI, try this URL to listen to Stan Freberg's London show: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/markthomaspresents/pip/2f6i0/
Bambi: cool ... thanks Merlyn
Bambi: what time does it start Merlyn
Merlyn: It's the archive from yesterday, It'll be up for a week
Stickman: I remember Stan Freberg from the 60's.
Merlyn: Then the Firesign Theatre will be up for a week (probably a slightly different URL)
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'cease', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:17 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the sitting room...
Merlyn: I'm listening to both right now, for a bit
Bambi: hi cat
Bambi: ok, great Merlyn
cease: hey this is good
cease: from my era
Bambi: I love Stan
Stickman: You've got something stuck in your era?
cease: this sounds like hour hour
Bambi: yes, it's great Hour Hour shows :-)

Bambi: they came on the Truss CDs
Stickman: Were those KFI or KPFK?
cease: wow, merl
Bambi: not sure ... Clem or Cat might know

||||||||| Catherwood leads Rotonoto into the room, accepts a jar of pennies as a gratuity, mutters something about 9:22 PM, then departs.
lennon-laura: Howdy Roto
cease: hi rootoo
Rotonoto: oh, wait- this is too early for me
Bambi: hi Roto
Stickman: Riddle me this...Why was "Radio Laffs of 1940" never released. Some really funny TFT stuff done live.
cease: i'm not as fat as cartman, but i have a better tuque
Rotonoto: hi all
cease: is laura with you, roto?
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and pipes up "Announcing 'Dave with braces', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:23 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
lennon-laura: It's later than you think, Roto
Stickman: Roto! Greets.
cease: it was released by firezine
Dave with braces: hi all, moderately early this time, yes I now have braces and they hurt like hell
Rotonoto: is that sidereal time or just eastern standard?
lennon-laura: Braces are just a crutch for your teeth
cease: hey dave
Bambi: hi Dave with braces
cease: i'm just back from the dentist myself
Rotonoto: wow- I made it just for once!
lennon-laura: Did the dentist make an impression?
Dave with braces: singing with braces is also interesting, but I'm doing better than I thought
Stickman: I think I'll just go sit on that dry hump over there.
Bambi: braces are no fun...especially getting used to them from what I hear
cease: what did you make, roto?
cease: #2?
Stickman: Pffttttt!
cease: you will do better than you'll think you'll do, dave
Rotonoto: a good impression, apparently
Stickman: That's metaphysically impossible!
cease: i am la brea man. i live in pitts
Rotonoto: yeah, stickman, keep from falling over on those crows...
Dave with braces: yes bambi getting used to them is quite literally nerve wracking, pretty painful and I like to think I can handle pain pretty well, so it's just soft foods and advil for now
Stickman: Time to pop open a Whizz.
||||||||| Catherwood escorts Snowbound Piano inside, makes a note of the time (9:27 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
lennon-laura: Milkshakes??
Snowbound Piano: Catherwood, take my mukluks.
||||||||| Catherwood takes Snowbound Piano's mukluks.
lennon-laura: The man with the keys
Bambi: to straighten teeth ... never too old for braces, they say
cease: hey piano man
Snowbound Piano: What key would you like, Laura?
Bambi: Hi Snowbound Piano ... errr, Johnny :-)
Snowbound Piano: Hola, Cat
lennon-laura: G
lennon-laura: below middle C
Bambi: have you seen the new page on CNIRadio.com for Indie Artists yet? :-)
Snowbound Piano: Thanks for the note yesterday, Bambi
cease: no you didnt, ah clem
cease: ralph spoilsport was a competitor with my father's ford dealership in la
Snowbound Piano: Yes, I saw it - would have sent a reply but my server is not accepting my outgoing mail.
cease: proctor discovered his tv ad when in la in 66 and evolved the voice thereafter, almost pre firesign
Bambi: you are welcome JP :-)
Snowbound Piano: I like a woman that wants to play me...
Snowbound Piano: Oh, THAT was for Laura - I wouldn't be mean to Bambi...
ah,clem: yes, Cat, but that one of the earliest refs to it..
Bambi: lol
cease: is 1970 considered close to 1966?
cease: maybe from this point in time, but not then
Stickman: I was in the 99cent store today. I would love to hear Phil Austin do a play by play walk through in that place.
Snowbound Piano: I remember seeing Ralph Williams ads in the film "Head."
ah,clem: no, she likes it that way
cease: you did in deed, piano
cease: good idea, stick
Bambi: wow, didn't realize they were doing stuff back in 66
cease: he used to guest on Carson
cease: jsut saw lennon's death announced on carson show on the news
Snowbound Piano: Radio Free Oz in '66!
cease: shoes for industry
Stickman: Didn't they release their first album in '67?
Bambi: wow...time sure gets away from me
Snowbound Piano: Mukluks for the dead!
ah,clem: they sure loved playing with the cart machine delay....
lennon-laura: speaking of 99 cent items, check out this on ebay

cease: are you doing anything to mitigate the braces pain, dave?
cease: no stick 68. recorded in 67. they played it on their radio show first
lennon-laura: Are the guys getting anything??
Stickman: Save some of that Percodan for me, Dave.
cease: laid, i hope
Snowbound Piano: Geez, Dave - braces? Been there, done that...about 30+ years ago.
cease: they're all married now
Bambi: yeah...I lose track of time ... How Time Flys
Merlyn: They don't get much for their earlier elbums
lennon-laura: some of that stuff is not on albums
Snowbound Piano: Well, they'll be getting a something from me since I have a copy of the Just Folks CD coming here soon
Dave with braces: eyes Cat, advil is my friend, they won't let me take anything stronger, but I don't really need it I suppose
Dave with braces: *yes
Snowbound Piano: I'd be more worried about the scraping of the inside of your lips, Dave...I remember that pain well
Rotonoto: Hey Merl- how come my page is refreshing like every 15-20 seconds?
Merlyn: Because that's what it's set at
Merlyn: that's the only way new text appears
Dave with braces: yeah it's not too bad really, not yet anyway, the lips are holding out well, it's the teeth that are getting it bad, the nerves are enflamed
||||||||| 9:36 PM -- Stickman left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
lennon-laura: You want something jerky, try 4 seconds, Roto
Rotonoto: yes, but it seems a higher refresh rate than I'm used to...
Snowbound Piano: Looks like Stickman couldn't stick it out
Bambi: a Donald Duck impression LOL
Rotonoto: d up
Merlyn: It's whatever you have it set at, and how well your browser refreshes, and how fast the fst.com website feeds out pages
Bambi: see ya stickman
Snowbound Piano: Austin was "renowned" for his duck voice...hence the pre-FST single "Duckman"
Bambi: he said he was at work and might have to leave ;-)
Rotonoto: ...and even at 16kbs my audio feed is getting all chopped up by buffering
cease: you have that, piano?
Snowbound Piano: Nope, no Duckage here
lennon-laura: I missed the Duckman....
Rotonoto: *I* have it set? where? In Firefox?
Bambi: wonder if they are getting royalties on "Just Folks" and "Duckman" ;-)
lennon-laura: Is Butterfly still in business
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 9:39 PM and doctecarino steps out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
Snowbound Piano: I would assume that the Just Folks release via Lodestone is going to generate some royalty for the guys.
lennon-laura: Hey tom
doctecarino: i... am....so....stuffed
cease: oh fuck. it's doc tec!
Bambi: in the dropdown menu, you can change that Roto
Merlyn: are you in the trocadero?
Snowbound Piano: Of course we could wait and ask Bubba if he arrives.
cease: lili should be saying that
Bambi: hi Doctec
doctecarino: lili lamont and i just got back from a fantastic and amazing mexican meal
Snowbound Piano: Tech-head!
Dave with braces: there's still so much FST that I don't have
Snowbound Piano: There's an awful lot of FST to obtain!
Bambi: hi to Lili too
cease: how is lili?
doctecarino: my energy level has been sub-par since picking up a flu bug while visiting with dear old dad at his new place in IL
Rotonoto: Bambi- please elaborate
cease: almost beyinod possilbity, johnny p
cease: bummer, doc
Snowbound Piano: Where in IL, Doc?
doctecarino: ...a bug which quickly morphed into a bronchial infection which continues to dog me
Merlyn: ILL after IL?
cease: i'm cat, you dog
lennon-laura: Keep the Vit-C up with the zinc, Doc
doctecarino: snowie: some backwater burg called huntley - del webb has built another one of his 'active adult' communities there
cease: lotsa garlic
Snowbound Piano: Careful, Merl...I'm in ILL...
cease: i havew to get my parents into one of those, while still capable of actrivity
Bambi: choose Configure at the bottom of the 'send to all' drop down menu Roto
cease: not for long, i fear
Bambi: it will be apparent when you do that
doctecarino: my main therapy, other than taking it easy (no choice there anyway) has been to suck up as much steam from a vaporizer as i can take
Snowbound Piano: Huntley...not familiar with it. Next someone will claim it's near Brinkley
Rotonoto: OK, and what is the 'arfument syntax' you enter under config?
lennon-laura: All tax is syn
cease: klok? what did he do?
doctecarino: to top it all off, the pc i built for my dad back in august (when he was still in NC) went on the fritz last week
Dave with braces: and all sin is taxing
Bambi: redraw
Bambi: I have mine set at 30
doctecarino: seems there was a power surge during a storm, his pc won't boot
cease: i recorded all this.
doctecarino: he shipped it to me - i checked it out, his ntfs file system was trashed
cease: f only the air checks were released. for this and the even better shows before, 67 mostly
lennon-laura: something's cooked??
Bambi: Klok sent some of the old shows as well as CharlesThroat sending the TrussCDs
doctecarino: i was able (through the wonderful "stellar phoenix" data recovery program) to recover all the data from it
cease: how is your dad, doc?
lennon-laura: the chip set?
Rotonoto: brb, going to swithc to a real phone line...
doctecarino: but now i have to rebuild his hard drive contents and that's gonna be onerous at best
Snowbound Piano: As opposed to a surreal phone line
cease: at least you have a parent you is conversant with computers, doc
doctecarino: cat: dad is doing very much better than his pc (or rather, his pc's hard drive - the rest of his pc seems to be ok)
Bambi: cool, cat! we wouldn't have known that before cuz it didn't say anything about who recorded them originally on the CDs.
Merlyn: where you can store your orth
||||||||| "Hey Rotonoto!" ... Rotonoto turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 9:48 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...
lennon-laura: pull as much as you can to an external drive?
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Dexter Fong into the room, accepts an I.O.U. as a gratuity, grumbles something about 9:48 PM, then departs.
Dexter Fong: Eveniong all
lennon-laura: Hey Ash
Snowbound Piano: Yo Dex
Bambi: hi Dex
cease: i recorded this on a reel to real taprecorder as it was beoing spoken, bambi
cease: thought fuckin everybody knew this by now
Merlyn: hey dex
Merlyn: boeing spoken?
Snowbound Piano: Take a bow, Cat
cease: hey dex, have you talked to elayne today?
Dexter Fong: Hi everybody
cease: do you all know about her?
doctecarino: cat: well, yes ... but with two very big caveats: (1) i set him up with an external hard drive for doing regular backups, which he has ignored since - and (2) he can't find his windows xp install disk [the result of the chaos surrounding the move from NC to IL] so i'm gonna have to circumvent that somehow
Dexter Fong: Cat: No, why?
lennon-laura: her blog??
cease: id rather have the violin
cease: hart attack thingie. go to her blog
Snowbound Piano: Ouch
Dexter Fong: Oh my....
cease: i thought you all knew that.
lennon-laura: Double ouch!!
Dexter Fong: Cat: Hadn't heard
Dexter Fong: BTW, who's lennon-laura?
cease: http://elayneriggs.blogspot.com/
Dexter Fong: Thanks cat

doctecarino: thanks for the heads up re elayne, cat
doctecarino: http://www.americanheart.org/presenter.jhtml?identifier=4451
Dexter Fong: Philadelphia, if Nino is to be trausted
lennon-laura: Hope she makes a full recovery!
cease: aint that what bookmarks are for?
cease: as do we all, laura.
cease: we would not exist here without her
||||||||| Outside, the 9:52 PM bus from Hellmouth pulls away, leaving Bubba's Brain coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
cease: this is her baby
Bambi: sorry to hear that about elayne ... have been too busy to read Elayne's blog for over a week now
Bubba's Brain: Hey all!
Snowbound Piano: Speak of the devil...
lennon-laura: Hey Bub, how's lodestone?
Dexter Fong: Hey Bubba
cease: she set this up, 10 years ago, as i recall
Bubba's Brain: Its a lode, and its a stone....
cease: bubba should know, but i dont think he was born then
doctecarino: tis true cat - it was at elayne's place back in '96 or so that i first jumped into the chat fray
Snowbound Piano: BeelzeBubba!
Bambi: hi Bubba
cease: thank grid it's not a kidney
doctecarino: '96 or '97 ... i forget ...
lennon-laura: don't let it weigh you down too much
Bubba's Brain: Hey, JP, gotcher package yet?
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in and pipes up "Presenting 'PrinciplePoop', just granted probation at 9:54 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
cease: i was here the first night but i forget the year
Snowbound Piano: No sire, perhaps tomorrow!
doctecarino: maybe '97 - cuz i remember i showed her an early version of my firesign site in late winter/early spring of '97
Bubba's Brain: know what, cat?
Bambi: hi principleP
PrinciplePoop: ahhh probation, I am a reprobate
Dexter Fong: Und now he's Capitolizing *blth* "P"'s
lennon-laura: What is reality, Poop?
cease: el and her then hsuband came to visit in early 96, i think
Snowbound Piano: Hey Poop!
PrinciplePoop kisses bambi while ah,clem is not looking
cease: e both chatted with group online then, just as we did in nyc in may at her place
cease: or was it 95? too long ago
PrinciplePoop: reality is a pretty flower that smells bad, according to spock
Dexter Fong: zest appeal
doctecarino: that was when i was commuting between NY and CT weekdays - i would land at her place (in, what was it, bronx or brooklyn) thursdays, we'd do the tag team chat thing, and i'd sleep over - making for a shorter commute to work friday morning
||||||||| At 9:55 PM, Dexter Fong vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
cease: you think there is only one reality, spock poop?
||||||||| "9:56 PM? 9:56 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Dexter Fong should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Dexter Fong enters and sits in the comfy chair.
doctecarino: the many springs from the one
PrinciplePoop: or reality is an imaginary garden with real toads in it
cease: indeed, doc
Dexter Fong: Tunes into CNI for big rock out jam type musicale
PrinciplePoop: refong
Snowbound Piano: Takes a lot o'Poop to fertilize that garden
PrinciplePoop: santana at woodstock they said
doctecarino: brb
lennon-laura: spoke spock in a wheel of reality
Bambi: wb Dex
cease: yep
cease: i'm the recordista
Snowbound Piano: Let me off this wheel of karma
PrinciplePoop: piano piano quite contrary, how does your garden grow?
cease: and isay that with annoyance. why didnt many people record those shows? everyone had taperrecords in la in those days
Dexter Fong: This wheels on fire!
cease: goin down the Band
Snowbound Piano: It's dead, PP
Dexter Fong: feeling road
PrinciplePoop: that's what the world is today
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "9:58 PM and late as usual, it's Rotonoto, just back from Elmertown."
cease: id like to hear a cleaner recording off this
doctecarino: lili was going to join us but i think between the radiation treatments and tonight's margaritas, she's down for the count
PrinciplePoop: smoke it piano
Dexter Fong: Hey Roto..like terrific serenity
lennon-laura: Rotomatically returns
Rotonoto: my other phone line is sooooo screwed...
Snowbound Piano: Perhaps some brownies...
Rotonoto: is my local BOC
PrinciplePoop: get down lili, et get back up again yeehaw
Snowbound Piano: The woman's a weeble
Rotonoto: so is my local BOC
PrinciplePoop: weeble or weebie
Rotonoto: wow I'm getting fabulous 28.8 k on this line
Bubba's Brain: Oooh hoo... Weeble Woman....
PrinciplePoop: whats a weebie? weebie bozos on this bus
Dexter Fong: Cat: Do you know this show..and is it sometime in late june,,an Hour Hour show?
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Rotonoto: it's so bad, the local phone co here steals pairs and swaps them around dependinfg on who is screaming the loudest
Dexter Fong: Roto: Pears are no longer in season
Snowbound Piano: Weebies are just one of the tribes
PrinciplePoop: they have to scream on the bad phone lines
Bubba's Brain: Swaps em with apples?
doctecarino: she's a week away from being done with the radiation treatments, then there are some followup doctor appts... assuming all has gone well, they'll just monitor her situation every 6 months from here on in
lennon-laura: Pairs are always in season
Rotonoto: the phone company will literally steal your phone line, stick you with a crappier one
Bambi: yes, get well soon Elayne! We love you!
PrinciplePoop: a week away? sooperdooper
Snowbound Piano: Au pairs?
Dexter Fong: Hiya Clem..the silver-tongued emcee
lennon-laura: Who's going to do the Switch
PrinciplePoop: yes ahh,clem
Rotonoto: sans pairs, rather
Snowbound Piano: You mean the Chromium one?
Bambi: there are not nearly enough phone 'connections' it seems recently ... we have been getting the fast busy way too much on Verizon in VA
PrinciplePoop: free advertizing for cat
doctecarino: i really have to get the rest of the aq stuff done this weekend
Rotonoto: one time they stole my line, forgot to give me another- I had no phone servi8ce for entire weekend
cease: i think in person will take on a new meaning soon
lennon-laura: Time to go up the pole and steal a few for yourself
cease: but i have nothing to sell, poop
Rotonoto: nope- twice, in fact
Bubba's Brain: Actually, you only have to steal twopoints to steal a line... but it takes three points to steal a curve.
PrinciplePoop: i went to high school with a twisted pair, I could try to find them for you
doctecarino: between fixing computer problems, helping out lili and dealing with this bronchial infection it's been hard to get caught up with outside commitments
Rotonoto: ohhhhh! that it were that easy, lennon!
Snowbound Piano: Rather pretzel like, Poop
cease: try Pretzel Logic
Dexter Fong: Bubba: How much to cast a shadow?
lennon-laura: and three points make a plane
PrinciplePoop: and you call yourself an american cat? oops, your canadian eh?
Snowbound Piano: I would love to tour the Southland...

Bubba's Brain: Steal a plane -- that's hijacking!!!!
cease: that was long ago
lennon-laura: cat, you're a lumber jack nad you're OK,...with me
Snowbound Piano: Oh yeah
cease: thaks lennon
Rotonoto: now I can see chat but not hear cni (snif!)
Dexter Fong: Lumber jack Nads?
Dexter Fong: Don't wanna hear this
lennon-laura: just behind the ands,...you know
Snowbound Piano: You can keep those lumberjack nads
doctecarino: i'll tell ya one thing - since getting lili set up with a wireless router, it makes it much easier for me to set up my laptop on the web from anywhere in her place
PrinciplePoop: echo chamber antics
Dexter Fong: antics...antics...anti...
cease: on a critique of the nuclear industry in a mag i was involved with, there was a drawing of an atom being split by a lumberjack, a nd i added the caption "i'm a lumberjack and i'm ok"
doctecarino: hello - ello - ello - ello - ello - ello - ello - ello - ello -
Merlyn: this needs more echo
cease: readersa attacked me as favouring transvitism!
cease: not making that up
Dexter Fong: Transvitamins?
Snowbound Piano: If I could only remember - ember - mber - ber...
Bambi: lol
lennon-laura: just keep your thumb on your lines, you'll do OK
PrinciplePoop: my vit needs to be trans
Dexter Fong: me name,,,name,,,na,,,
Rotonoto: it gets better- they rewired our local 'switch and now my long distance is broken- for like 3 weeks- and idiots can't fix it!
doctecarino: a favouring tranvitism? how much can you make an hour doing that?
cease: speaking of said mag, doc tec will be brining it to you all soon on www.seemreal.com, won't you doc?
Bubba's Brain: wireless router... that'd be handy for making furniture away from any oultets.
Rotonoto: Roto is about to blow
PrinciplePoop: hello oh oh oh oh oh
doctecarino: i don
Bambi: they sure loved that echo lol
Snowbound Piano: Aargh - Crosby ref!
doctecarino: i don't blame you roto
PrinciplePoop: two words roto, skape
Dexter Fong: Bubba: lol
doctecarino: bambi: it was more a case of THEIR AUDIO ENGINEER loving echo
Snowbound Piano: I think "The Jiver" loved the echo most of all
lennon-laura: BRB, out for more coffee
cease: snl crosy, bing crosby, stills and nash
Merlyn: on & off like a crazy monkey
Bambi: lol
Dexter Fong: SP: Der Bingle?
doctecarino: firesign guys often had no other choice but to go along with whatever crap 'the live earl jive' threw at them
PrinciplePoop: I was helplessly hoping for that
cease: who told you that, doc?
Snowbound Piano: Nah, der Byrdle
Bambi: at their mercy so to speak, huh? bummer
cease: this is phone from nyc
doctecarino: i recall austin sort of complaining about that once - the fact that the production on these shows was all too often chaotic and unfocused
PrinciplePoop: our house is a very very nice house, with two gnomes in the yard
Dexter Fong: and the Travelocity Gnome on the phone
cease: yes you can see engineer fucking with this. jive fucked them up, but to good effect
||||||||| Catherwood walks up and intones "Presenting 'otonotoR', just granted probation at 10:10 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
Snowbound Piano: Oh, the episode where Proctor's in NYC and old man Ossman is out in the country?
PrinciplePoop: hello? oh oh oh
Dexter Fong: ...yM, hO
cease: i thikn that was the idea of ths show. get stoned and listen to This!
otonotoR: wow, blazing 21,600 bps
doctecarino: in retrospect, the spontaneity lends the shows quite a bit of charm - but at the time, i think austin felt a little constrained by the lack of forethought with the production style
Dave with braces: gnomes? and yeah that would bother me if there wasn't a bit of organization in a show, as much as I like spontaneity
Bubba's Brain: And one gnome in 18 inches....
cease: yes it is, piano
PrinciplePoop: wb oto noto r
Snowbound Piano: Ya know, David just had a birthday...#69.

cease: daves been gone so long his braces have fallen off\
PrinciplePoop: dave must have some good pills ha
LeftRev.Tweenstormer: I prefer Wild Turkey from Winn Dixie.
Dexter Fong: Well Cat (and DocT could tell you better) but oft times in crowded areas it's possible to piggy back on someone else's broadband wirless signal
doctecarino: my optimum online ISP allows for accessing my email through its browser-based email client - i can get and respond to email from a web cafe, a friend's internet-connected pc, a laptop with a wireless card in anyplace that offers 'hot spot' wireless access
cease: yeah tween. my query was of, what just hotmail? i'd like to do more than that
PrinciplePoop: dinque me again like you did last summer
LeftRev.Tweenstormer: Is Google really going to make all of SF wireless?
Dexter Fong: doink!!
doctecarino: tween: i think they're gonna try - they sure have the deep pockets (not to mention fiber optic cable) to pull it off
PrinciplePoop: the wishing well refused your coin dexter
LeftRev.Tweenstormer: Powerbooks are expensive compared to PC laptops.
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies Donk6 in through the front door at 11:12 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
cease: yes but my need for email is not that problematic. what i thik of is more if there is anything i need to access by web i wont be able to. but that's unlikely
Dexter Fong: The Police are making all of Philadelphia wireless...they're ripping out all the electric and phone lines in the ghettos
PrinciplePoop: hello donk6
LeftRev.Tweenstormer: Don't look behind you...
Donk6: Hey PP

Bubba's Brain: The city of NO is making 128k wireless available free throughout the city, they've arleady started in the French Quarter.

LeftRev.Tweenstormer: They're going to have to do something to get people back, Bubba...
PrinciplePoop: I don't think troutville is going wireless soon
klokwkdog: in most states, the phone companies have now pushed thru laws making socialist provision of wireless by towns or cities illegal
Bubba's Brain: Billville is going wireless... or rather the tornado ripped out all the phone lines
doctecarino: ooh, maybe an http redirect would work then
otonotoR: Bozoette sez I'm becoming a fanatic about 'that health stuff'
PrinciplePoop: go to billville and get some roto
Bubba's Brain: BRB -- going to put clothes in drier.
Dexter Fong: Klok: No problemo..we only hire illegal South Americans...no commie Europeans
PrinciplePoop: take them off first bubba, I learned that the hard way

LeftRev.Tweenstormer: LoL Klok. At the hands of McCartney maybe...
Donk6: well i lit up a cigar for john but no candle

Donk6: soon we will be saying "i
Dexter Fong: Jack London is not well?

cease: about what?

||||||||| Catherwood accompanies Dexter Fong inside, makes a note of the time (11:54 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Bambi: oh, sorry...must have missed the connection ... Jackson did a wonderful job on LoTR movies. Very true to books as much as was possible and then some. I think he would do a great job on King Kong IF he feels as strongly about the book as he did LoTR books.
klokwkdog: the movie crew, Donk?
Bambi: lol principleP
Dexter Fong: Odd got kicked..but while I was rebooting router saw some of PBS in NYC show Roy Orbison: Black and White...great show...great singer

||||||||| Stickman says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, Stickman exits at 12:59 AM.
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and pipes up "Presenting 'Stickman', just granted probation at 12:59 AM", then leaves hurriedly.
Stickman: I'll just stand here like an idiot talking to myself. hehe
||||||||| At 1:00 AM, Stickman hurries out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
||||||||| 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 Stickman disembarks at 1:00 AM.
||||||||| At 1:00 AM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Stickman!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
||||||||| 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."
