Special appearance by
Phil Austin

||||||||| 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 January 12, 2006 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Outside, the 7:56 PM crosstown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving Firebroiled coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Firebroiled: Yes, Them too! A lot of Them.
Mostly Them and not many of Us!
And that’s why we’re here and they’re there!
So there, Mr. Monday Morning Quarterback,
Mr Wheelchair General!
Are you going to turn your back on America’s fighting men
when he come knock, knock, knockin’ at your front door?
Firebroiled: March on and on.....
||||||||| At 7:57 PM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Firebroiled!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
||||||||| Catherwood sneaks into the room, and pipes up "Announcing 'Hemlock Stones', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 8:10 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the sitting room...
||||||||| It's 8:20 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Hemlock Stones - dead from the fiddlers
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Dr. StrangeTween sashays in at 8:53 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
Dr. StrangeTween: Hey, Merlyn. How about letting people put up avatars?
||||||||| Catherwood says "8:54 PM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs Dr. StrangeTween by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
||||||||| Catherwood ushers ah,clem in through the front door at 8:55 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.

||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, January 12, 2006 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Firebroiled close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 9:04 PM tree-stunting plans, and scurries off to the anteroom.
||||||||| At 9:04 PM, Firebroiled vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Merlyn close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 9:07 PM tree-stunting plans, and dashes off to the vestibule.
Merlyn: hello
Merlyn sits down
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and pipes up "Announcing 'Hemlock Stones', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:12 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Hemlock Stones: Good Evening gentlemen
Merlyn: hey Nancy

Honey Sanchez: tee hee hello

||||||||| Dexter ah, Lito Fong bounds in at 9:15 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
Dexter ah, Lito Fong: Hey Stones

Dexter ah, Lito Fong: Woody: Yes to TV or Not TV (Procter & Bergman), and The Rose Parade..but no gas Music..didn't you know that was a fake?
Bambi: (also available from Lodestone)
Dr. TweenLove: Laugh.com isn't a bad second choice...
Merlyn: Here's Gas Music from Jupiter: http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2004/20feb_radiostorms.htm
Dexter ah, Lito Fong: Merlyn: You were taken in by a clever fraud
Bambi: hope to be able to get Weirdly Cool DVD from Lodestone soon

Woody One: Once I go, I may go. Later . Thanks, Bambi.
Hemlock Stones: No thanks Doc i have one already
Dr. TweenLove: If you liked ELP, you'll love Greg Lake's solo album. Different keys, but amazingly good. Sort of like Lake's portion of Works.

Bambi: btw: my blog is no longer under our personal site, it is fully moved to http://www.bambismusings.com now
Honey Sanchez: ty, bambi
Dr. TweenLove: And speaking of... what does everybody think of Apple w/Intel Inside?
||||||||| 9:42 PM -- Woody One left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
Bambi: hope Greg Lake is going Independent and publishing through the music cartel
Dr. TweenLove: Rosetta will apparently run PowerPC apps like Classic mode in OS X.
Hemlock Stones: rather damages the special status that Apple has clung to Doc
Dr. TweenLove: Love to know more about Indie artists, Bambi. Thanks for the links on CNI.
Bambi: sounds like Intel Macs compare well with dual core equivalent PCs ... that part sounds very good ... looking forward to some real life reviews
Dr. TweenLove: Everybody's got to make a living, and giving away music doesn't put bread on the table.
Bambi: and that was NOT publishing through the music cartel LOL
Dr. TweenLove: OS X on an Intel? 4x as fast.
Hemlock Stones: now you can run OS x on a PC
Bambi: Indie Artists don't give their music away ... at least most don't give it all away like Steadman (http://www.steadmanband.com) but they don't fund RIAA lawsuits ;-)
Dr. TweenLove: Not yet, Stones, but Dell would like to.
Hemlock Stones: i saw a site where there the OS X code had been ripped
Dr. TweenLove: You buy a hardware platform, your choice of OS.
Hemlock Stones: and Adam Curry was talking about it on one of his podcasts
Bambi: seems as though it's only being sold by Apple on dual core hardware ... hope it will work on non-dual coare
Dr. TweenLove: That was the Consortium in Austin 10 years ago. A standard hardware platform.
Dr. TweenLove: I'd give it 6 mos before I buy an Intel Mac for critical apps. For multimedia? It flys, according to the specs.
Dexter ah, Lito Fong: Don't know if anyone's listening to radio show but not as many laughs as usual
Dr. TweenLove: Praise Michael for shipping his PCs with Linux installed.
Bambi: least expensive one I saw was dual core and cost $1999
Honey Sanchez: agrees and orders the scared prones
Hemlock Stones: was good to hear Pete and Phil discussing their history
||||||||| 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 Principalpoopalitorooni disembarks at 9:53 PM.

boney: Ontario Motor Speedway was demolished.
Principalpoopalitorooni: grape fontana or orange?
Hemlock Stones: what time will it get to Jupiter Clem ?
klokwkdog: Clem - sure. Still, it's best to be prepared for the Real Thing. You never know when your local remote-controlled Clear Channel station will lose its connection to Robot Central
Dr. TweenLove: Dolphins on the Fountain, Dolphins on the Fountain (IU Auditorium)
Principalpoopalitorooni: the comet dust should be back soon, some channel should replay the andromeda strain

klokwkdog: Tweeny -- no, I got a penguin. Bubba - no, I did it on Sunday
Dr. TweenLove: You didn't cathe the bus? You really are a problem, sir...
Dexter ah, Lito Fong: Bambi: YOu got C Wood well trained
boney: I don't think Big John Tasmanian (mentioned in a Zappa song as is Fontana as is Cucamonga) owns Irwindale Speedway anymore... He'd probably dead
Dr. TweenLove: catch
boney: He's probably dead
Bubba's Brain: Well, they've changed that now... except for 5 counties which are holding back.
boney: Phil Austin is fading away
||||||||| Catherwood walks up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'Bunnyboy', just granted probation at 10:37 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
Dexter ah, Lito Fong: Hey Bunny
Bunnyboy: Hi, Mr. President! Hello, all!
Principalpoopalitorooni: helly bunnoboy

Principalpoopalitorooni: are you ailing ah, clem?
Dexter ah, Lito Fong: Catherwood bring more head

Bunnyboy: Phil and Merlyn must be ironing the leaves.
Dr. TweenLove: We're on Western Standard Time here at the Broken Spoke. Not that that's wrong...
Bambi: Catherwood please pour ah,clem a large Ale
||||||||| Catherwood gives ah clem a large ale.
Bubba's Brain: Ale be the judge of that.
klokwkdog: they used my name for GUM?! This hasn't happened to me since the Soviets did it!

Bambi: probably better than landing in the bushes on the way out LOL
Dexter ah, Lito Fong: Tween: *I* like the eastern shore
Principalpoopalitorooni: shave and use the shampoo there tween, try not to scratch
klokwkdog: Tweeny -- fewer and fewer and pricier and pricier. Like Calabash in NC. All getting franchised away by institutional food
Bambi: Eastern Shore is a nice place to visit
klokwkdog: Kent Island, last I went thru, has become an abomination
Bambi: Clem ... irc1 must have been rebooted...will need to try another server

Bambi: would love to hear what Phil's up to
Phil Austin: boney; nothing new, sorry to say. I'm cooking dinner and I'll be in and out

Ghost of Bubba's Brain: I miss much?
Bunnyboy: Well, I was doing one of those "what happened to the guy who played...?" searches on the I-net today, and found the guy who played Lewis Lewis on CURB this season.
Principalpoopalitorooni: and that starts with T which rhymes with P and that stands for ponchos
Bunnyboy: His name is Bill Saluga, but y'all might recognize him as Raymond J. Johnson, Jr.
klokwkdog: this is great. the old frozen burger patties, the remants of a 2-week old lettuce head, the dregs fo the jar of beets in the fridge for 6 months...by spring, the fridge should be reduced enough to clean!
Ghost of Bubba's Brain: You can call him Ray, or you can call him J....?
Dexter ah, Lito Fong: Merlyn: I notice that on Nino's map of chatters, some locaters are red and some are yellow; what's that mean?

Dexter ah, Lito Fong: Klok: I'm one of the yellow designators
Bunnyboy: The map divergences may be as a result of bookmarked log-ins. If you sign on "fresh", the map usually straightens out.

||||||||| boney - dead from the fiddlers
||||||||| Dexter ah, Lito Fong - dead from dengue fever
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Merlyn: You there, roto?
Rotonoto: hi
Rotonoto: I'm still on the phone with Bozoette- how'ya, guy?
Merlyn: I'm fine - you've just been getting back to chats lately
Rotonoto: I got real busy with work for many months, and it's shifted schedule- so I kept forgetting to log on...
Merlyn: that's what I heard - nice to see you back
Rotonoto: no mornings for me- I have "Personal Time Zone" (TM)
Merlyn: does it have daylight savings?
Rotonoto: I've saved up about half the daylight, planning to use it when I retire- heh!
Merlyn: that was one of the south sea bubble scams
Merlyn: ...I don't know if phil is ever coming back...
Rotonoto: I'd guess not- sorry I was late and missed him
Merlyn: he said he was cooking dinner
Rotonoto: I wish someone would cook me dinner- heh!
Rotonoto: sometimes I get fed by Bozoette
Phil Austin: oddly, I'm back suddenly
Rotonoto: can you believe it- I even cook for her
Merlyn: talking about food brought you back
Rotonoto: hi Phil, WB
Phil Austin: yeah. we're packing to drive down to LA tomorrow, so I'm distracted
Phil Austin: Hi, Roto
Merlyn: how many hours is that drive?
Phil Austin: It's two days of abut eight and nine hours
Rotonoto: I'm on the phone with Bozoette, a reluctant sorta FST fan (she doesn't 'get' the FST, she claims)
Phil Austin: He;y, has anyone heard from John Rice recently?
Merlyn: that's 56 and 63 hours in dog years
Phil Austin: and god knows what in cumulative dog hours. we've got four with u s
Merlyn: I haven't, but I've kept in touch with him. Last I heard, he was bummed out because he was unable to get an air america deal that had backing
Phil Austin: I was hoping he's found a new job. I'll email him and find out
Merlyn: FT could get a show on AA or sirius, but it's basically cheap airtime that would need a sponsor
Merlyn: stern sucked up all the money I guess
Rotonoto: hey, if Howard Stern can do it...
Phil Austin: and bambi sent me a message that I didn't get to about Elayne in the hospital? What was the problem?
Phil Austin: the thought of stern sucking anything would please him, no doubt
Merlyn: Haven't heard anything about elayne lately, I'll check last week's log quick...
Rotonoto: absoultely cannot stand the man!
Rotonoto: damn shame, 'cause he's so smart, unfortunately, so demented, too
Phil Austin: fst has been unable to get together on a plan that could be taken to a sponser, so John's lying low
Merlyn: nothing from last week, she was at the chat. Nothing specific in this week's log, either
Phil Austin: Bambi just said "in the hospital and home now recouping"
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 1 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Merlyn: hmm, maybe it was a car accident?
Merlyn: I would think a pitch to a sponsor could be pretty general for a first approach, just something like "a Firesign show on AA or sirius"
Phil Austin: not a clue. anyway, I haven't shown up here for five months or so mostly because almost all that time's been up north and I only this week got dsl and a computer into this house
Merlyn: the dimensions of the show could adjust to how the sponsor reacts, what they want, etc
Phil Austin: Various members insist on certain financial minimums to participate and John couldn't make the numbers work with AA
Merlyn: I have half a gig on my keychain now, finally got a stick USB drive because the computer my wife uses has a broken ethernet connection
Phil Austin: My personal advice was to get on the air free if we had to and make it work from there, but I couldn't get enough votes
Merlyn: well, it sounded like AA wasn't willing to put up any money for a show, just offering a timeslot for near-free...
Phil Austin: Yes, and if we were entreprenurial at all, something interesting might happen, unfortunately, we're not
Merlyn: Sam Longoria said he might know some people who might be able to finance such a show, but he was busy last time I emailed him.
Merlyn: I know it's hard to work for free for any length of time...
Phil Austin: well, we're right in the middle of a huge controversy around Taylor's "Dear Friends" reissue project and I'll be able soon to see where everyone's at about life in general
Phil Austin: there is a definite lack of playfullness in fst and the communal sense of humor suffers
Merlyn: Taylor took a survey in the newsgroup about DF and what would need to be excised
Phil Austin: We're all looking at the project in a new light and Taylor has us in touch with Negativeland as well
Merlyn: the pop songs would have to go, but it sounds like bits that involve excerpt read from books might go too
Merlyn: I've seen a few more references to firesign podcasting in newspapers, too
Phil Austin: the key question with me right now is if Taylor wants to continue, given what's happened lately. Haven't heard from him yet, but hope to
Phil Austin: Len cassamas and rob't margolis and doctec have been loosely discussing putting podcastin on my blog and it sounds interesting
Merlyn: yeah, it isn't too hard to do
Phil Austin: we'll see. anyway, I'm heading for bed. I doubt if I'll check in next week - but hopefully the week after. nice talking to you
||||||||| "1:17 AM? I'm late!" exclaims Phil Austin, who then runs out through the french doors and down through the garden.
Merlyn: ok, hope to see you more often
Merlyn: nite roto
||||||||| Around 1:19 AM, Merlyn walks off into the sunset...
Rotonoto: nite guys...
Rotonoto: "get your hands off me- I'm a newsman- I gotta find out- Reeeebussssss!!!
||||||||| At 1:20 AM, Rotonoto vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 2 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 3 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| LiliLamont leaves to catch the 3:12 AM train to Milford.
||||||||| 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."
