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 February 23, 2006 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, February 23, 2006 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!" -- then he looks around at the empty room, looks at his watch, and mumbles "...am I early?"
||||||||| 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 doctec disembarks at 9:21 PM.
doctec: uh... anyone here?
doctec: just thought i'd drop in
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and intones "Presenting 'Merlyn', just granted probation at 9:22 PM", then leaves hurriedly.

doctec: i'm working on bubba's shopping cart app

Inflatable Tweeny: Never played a CS80, but I sure loved the specs. Tommy Mars of Zappa's band did some really cool stuff with the CS.
Dexter Fong: Klk: If you feel overated, put less food on your plate
Principalpoop: does your cock know any other songs ah, clem
Johnny Piano: Watched the Chapman "Personal Best" last night locally, llan
Dr. Headphones: hey doc/BB, did you see me run down that tree in walmart lot on the way out? couldn't quite make that turn ;)

Bubba's Brain: Doc's at Lodestone international secret headquarters.
Principalpoop: llan
Inflatable Tweeny: I'm from that area back in the 80's, just wondering what place.
Johnny Piano: Tween, that thing was a PIG. Weighed damn near 200 lbs.
Dexter Fong: Hey Hemlock
doctec: dr. h.: no, i missed that. dang!

klokwkdog: FYI "frappr" is the map of listners...well the CNI Radio frappr is (it maps you via a pushpin on a standard (otherwise) Google Maps view of the US (or world in the case of Hemlock Stones and other far-flungs)
Hemlock Stones: the pleasure is ours ah Clem
Ms. Honey : ty ah, clem for making it possible
Dr. Headphones: i think they can just put it back upright again, side of trailer bumped it
Bubba's Brain: Noticed on our way out a "No Semi Parking" sign... oops.
Principalpoop: back to the shadows again
Inflatable Tweeny: That's what I heard. Portable was a relative term. Not as bad as the GX1, though ;)
doctec: LodesTone Central is a 17-floor jet black windowless fortress - really quite impressive
cease: ah, ossman in poet mode
Stickman: You can rest assured that PBS will run those again and again and again...
cease: he's wondrous at this
klokwkdog: Dex -- making my own sub tonight and I'm channeling Dagwood, thank you
Johnny Piano: Tween, the flight case was the size of a B3
doctec: i'm getting peanuts - all the holt compilations
Dr. Headphones: BB: next time, truck stop a few miles south might be better bet even if slightly out of the way
Principalpoop: I got dem no hoagie blues
cease: charles shultz? he dead now
Bubba's Brain: I know the one.... will do.
Dr. Headphones: Pp: take two carmichaels and call me in the morning
Inflatable Tweeny: 4 mechanical presets, as I recall. Polyphonic aftertouch was a nice feature.
Dexter Fong: Cat: But his syndication lives on in black and white or color
Johnny Piano: I was in touch with Ossman not too long ago - invited him to come play on Thursday chat...still no sign
Bubba's Brain: Hoagie blues... he wrote Stardust a few blocks from here.
cease: a cannabis gag?
Inflatable Tweeny: Not presets, programs...
Principalpoop: carl michaels? he sells pantyhose
Bubba's Brain: a cannabis bag!
Johnny Piano: Actually it was 6 presets. 2 were on the front console, and 4 hidden under a panel.
Dexter Fong: Why, this is a bag of good shit...really good shit
Stickman: I wish you wouldn't say panties! It's bad for my heart!
klokwkdog: you see? you see? all these folks have touched them and I've never been closer than 50 ft. :-(
Bambi: a good sub with the right kind of bread is so hard to get in VA
Johnny Piano: And yes, the aftertouch - wow, that was a joy.
Bubba's Brain: Why this shit.... is shit!
Principalpoop: no stem or seeds and you can smoke the bag too
doctec: 6 present, 2 under the cabinet - sure beats a CS80
doctec: presets
Inflatable Tweeny: Pretty gutsy sound, that CS. Also though the ribbon controller was nice.
klokwkdog: Dex -- according to the FCC, it's human excrement now, and they sent out fines to underline that
Dr. Headphones: bambi: if you have to go commercial, quiznos is the best nat'l chain
doctec: with the possible exception of the modular moogs, no one has done the ribbon controller as well as yamaha did with the CS80
Dexter Fong: Wow, my local dope dealer got fined for taking a dump in a bag
Bambi: but we did find one place who does it right and had a hot #4 with provolone - ham, roast beef, provolone, bacon, lettuce, tomato, mayo (amazingly enough) ... yum!
Johnny Piano: My understanding is that Stevie Wonder wore his ribbons out on a regular basis...must have been "ribbons in the sky"
Bubba's Brain: X-crement?
Bambi: f-cc for sure
cease: cremains?
Bubba's Brain: f-cc that!
doctec: that must've been some really great shit
Bunnyboy: Wow, this is the first time I've heard the "Gary Firesign" material as a Austin-read piece. Fun.
llanwydd: is that for real, dex?
Bambi: cyanide radio LOL
Johnny Piano: I miss Schlotsky's Deli! Could go for a hot pastrami...
cease: who usually does the gary firesing?
Dexter Fong: llan: Nothing is for real, Ms. Presky
Inflatable Tweeny: Had a Micromoog with a ribbon. Much better than a wheel, in my opinion. Like to try the pressure pad on the new Voyager.
Bubba's Brain: When they see us coming, the birdies all try n' hide....
doctec: studio deli, greenwich ave. tribeca for me!
klokwkdog: bambi -- the euro-style bread is not too plentiful, but there's a fair bakery in New Haven delivering and of course the stores here are buried in Portuguese specialities like Bulges Levedos and round loafs and such (big Azorean population)
Bubba's Brain: But they still go for peanuts, when coated with cyanide.
Bunnyboy: Truth be told, the "Gary Firesign" segment is one of my favorites from NOT INSANE!
llanwydd: tom lehrer, isnt it, bb?
Johnny Piano: I'm so used to the wheel - I like to really grab that bugger. Ever watch Roger Powell play solos?
Bubba's Brain: Whatever happened to Schlotsky's Deli?
Bubba's Brain: Yes, tom lehrer.
Johnny Piano: Belly up as far as I know, Bubba
Principalpoop: that #4 has potential but a rather fancy sub that
Bubba's Brain: Too bad... they had some good sandwhiches... and pizzas.
Inflatable Tweeny: No, but I sure am a fan of Powell's work with Utopia. Think he had a Lynx portable.
doctec: http://www.schlotzskys.com/
Johnny Piano: And the potato chips, Bubba
Bambi: nice Klok, up north in NJ ... never had a problem finding a good sub shop with proper light crispy bread ... down here in VA ... they just don't get it!!
doctec: tween: didn't he tweak out that lynx a bit? i thought it was a custom job...
Bunnyboy: Tom Lehrer fans should check out the new BEST OF THE ELECTRIC COMPANY set. It includes a karaoke version of Lehrer's SILENT E.
Dexter Fong: Cat: The gary Firesign showed up on record as a much more produced piece with all the guys taking part
Johnny Piano: Tween, that was actually a controller of Powell's own design. The Lync looks a lot like it.
llanwydd: the delis are better in Philadelphia
doctec: http://trbazaar.com/rogerpowell.htm
Johnny Piano: I have a Lync.
Inflatable Tweeny: Think you're right, Doc. May have been custom-built.
Bunnyboy: (sings) Who can turn a CUB into a CUBE?
cease: originally, dex?
Bambi: they don't know how to make rolls either!
Principalpoop: roanoke in the middle of a dessert for the schlotzskys
klokwkdog: the cheesesteaks and pizza steaks are certainly 'way better in Philly!

Bubba's Brain: Still around... check out http://cooldeli.com/
doctec: in january i bought a cd copy of 'cosmic furnace' - what a timewarp

Bubba's Brain: Silent E and his other ELECTRIC CO. stuff is also on his box set.
Johnny Piano: Powell's controller was called the Probe, and he designed it with former ARP engineer Jeremy Hill
Bambi: the E lectrician?
Principalpoop: I could drive to johnson city in tennessee
cease: thast illuminati type group homer joins
Ms. Honey : ...
Dexter Fong: Cat: Hard to say what's original..may have been first done on radio show before going to recording
Stickman: You guys are making me really HUNGRY!
Johnny Piano: Doc, "Air Pocket" is coming soon from the same label.
klokwkdog: (or at least they were when Goode was mayor and Rizzis's police state was burning whole neighborhoods to the ground. Now I hear those poor people have been screwed twice)
Bubba's Brain: Also been checking out the Alan Sherman box set from Rhino Handmade. Great stuff.
cease: whats up, honey?
cease: bees?
doctec: johnny: great to hear, i was wondering if that title would ever see the light of day on cd
Principalpoop: that is a rude question to ask stones cat
Dr. Headphones: well, dear friends, sleep is sneaking up on me. have to be at work at 4am, so toodle-ooh to all

Johnny Piano: Yeah, they're even throwing in a bonus track - his version of Pipeline

Inflatable Tweeny: Yeah, Buckmister Fuller's right. There's enought o go around if we did it properly.
klokwkdog: cat -- no end of starvation we could have prevented, but shipping US or Canuk grain to Africa dosen't work and never did. It was all about subtle payoff to ag. (and shipping in the US) interests in the donor country, not largesse to the recipient

cease: the guy who got them their pbs show has been hsutling them on radio and tv ever since, still invain
klokwkdog: boney -- listen to Leo LaPorte talk about the demise of The Screen Savers on TWiT sometime. CNI rebroadcasts some of those episodes. The demographic accounting used for cable channels now is just unbelievable and FST (nor any tech stuff) does not stand a chance
Principalpoop: improv reality, only one survives, you'll die laughing
cease: they did some work on thatr Tick cartoon. even the characters loked like them
klokwkdog: much better to produce video for the net and get it sponsored somehow

Principalpoop: sure they could, the knive cuts both ways
otonotoR: (makes the sign of the double helix and backs away...)
klokwkdog: cat -- that's as in the manufactured "mainstream". People are not allowed to have taste anymore; it's manufactured and presented to them. There is a demographic and you play to it or you are ignored.
