All engraven that refreshes,

a tale told by an idiot, and the head of a Fox!

Bambi: well, had to return the laptop after they got home from work ... stuff happens lol
Principalpoop: my sinuses talk to me too, I have become a barometer
Bambi: Catherwood pour Pricipalpoop a rocky rococo road
||||||||| Catherwood gives pricipalpoop a rocky rococo road.
Dave: I hadn't left my dorm in a day since I got sick until yesterday, it was fucking 65 on Monday, and was snowing yesterday, ah Colorado weather is so much fun
Bambi: mine were talkin' to me this morning princep
cease: like that here too, dave
Principalpoop: ahh not boring that is for sure dave, keep you on your toes
cease: wamr, snow, warm
klokwkthawed was out walking in drizzle; miserable
beTweenUs&Them: That sort of change will throw your body a curve, Dave...
Bambi: heard that Dave! such variances!
Principalpoop: sudafed works super for me, if I take it soon enough
klokwkthawed: but 40, not 20, that's an improvement
Dave: yeah well it would be nice if I could look out the window, too lazy to look up the forecast, smile
Principalpoop: that is not good klok, get a hot shower and dry clothes
Principalpoop: looking does not help, it can be sunny and still cold or windy
klokwkthawed: thanks poop; it builds character :-(
Bambi: must be gusting to 35 or higher on winds tonight!
Principalpoop: I have enough character thank you, but if you need more, go for it

Principalpoop: no cream or sugar? more sugar
Principalpoop: the dog will keep you out of deep puddles dave
klokwkthawed: salt & peppa for me, please
Bambi: wet dogs do dry off Dave ... can't beat the loyalty and friendship of a good dog ... well worth the little annoyances ...smile
Dave: she caries a vocal range to beat almost anyone but a personality to annoy anyone too, which would you pick?
Principalpoop: ahhh the spice of life, or should I say condiments
beTweenUs&Them: Peaches & Herb for me ;)
Principalpoop: you are the apple of my eye

Bambi smile ... if you can't beat 'em, join 'em Klok
Principalpoop: I know nothing about austria bone
Principalpoop: arnold is from there, I think
boney: Ostriches?

Bambi: boy, that woke him up!
boney: scrambled... These are Barry Bonds brains on roids.
Dave: I'm gonna do my thing, if people are fine with it, good for them, if they don't care, then I don't care if they care or not
cease: just dont get beat up, dave
Bambi: yes, even if you liked them before, there will be 'things' that grate over time lol
boney: and this is Barry Bonds locker on roids
beTweenUs&Them: Interesting cut, Klok...
Principalpoop: its your thang, do you what you want to do, I can't tell you, who to sock it to
Dave: I haven't gottne beat up in my life, and am not a very strong person, so...we'll see what happens, smile, if I get beat up, I get beat up
klokwkthawed: remember Catch 22 and Yosirrian going beserk when Orr kept rebuilding the stove in their quarters?
boney: and this aluminum baseball bat up your kazoo is Barry Bonds on roids

cease: good to have big dog around
Principalpoop: beat up for singing? what kind of hellhole are you in?
beTweenUs&Them: Bit of a take-off on Floyd there, eh?

||||||||| Dexter Fong scurries out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's Dexter Fong?! It's 12:05 AM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
Bambi: Sock it to me, sock it to me, sock it to me ... picture the nun in the movie Airplane singing it ...
Dave: yeah no one's beaten me up for singing, shit at least I can sing,
||||||||| Dexter Fong enters at 12:05 AM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and rushes off to the Hat Pack Annex.
Dave: hahah I remember that part of airplane, oh man
klokwkthawed: this is what East Germany was doing during the end of the Cold War
Dexter Fong: Wb again Dex
Bambi: welcome back Dex
cease: i come from an age when people would attack me for my hair length, skin colour, etc
boney: Neil Young on the Daily Show yesterday?
cease: that is not your era, dave. rejoice
Dexter Fong: Cat: Caryus Baarious Bond
cease: wasnt that great
boney: His face may look grungy, but he can still sing
beTweenUs&Them: Bambi remembers Laugh-In. The cover of the recent AARP mag had Hawn "60 & Sexy".
boney: appoint him an honorary buoy
beTweenUs&Them: Have to check that out, Bone. Bet it's good :)
klokwkthawed: she can afford to be sexy
Bambi: yeah, now you can get beat up for Nikes, ipods, cellphones, talking Politically incorrect, etc. etc.
||||||||| Catherwood leads Merlyn in through the front door at 12:08 AM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
Merlyn: hey again
klokwkthawed: wb Merlyn
Bambi: that's funny Tweeny about Laugh-In Hawn on the cover of AARP
beTweenUs&Them: In a puff of smoke...
Dexter Fong: How was the game Merlyn
Bambi: hi Merlyn!
boney: actually, he didn't sing on the Daily Show. They played a clip from his concert movie. However, he was on Conan O'Brien four consecutive days, and he did sing that time.
Dave: yep, and I say if someone wnats to beat someone else up for things like that, they're really shallow
cease: i saw it boney
beTweenUs&Them: Does make one feel one's age, Bambi ;)
Merlyn: made a goblin rocket helmet and found an epic shield
Dexter Fong: You can get beat up for calling people shallow, Dzve
cease: true, bambi. we dont (maybe) have to worrry about having russian nukes dropped on us, but we'll still die of something else,
Bambi: there will always be bullies unfortunately ... some people's children (as the saying goes)
Dave: true Dex, hence why I don't say it to them, smile, I'm a little smarter than that
boney: See how if you squeeze the tube of Preparation H too hard, all of the gunk comes out? That's what roids do to your brain.
Dexter Fong: Some people's children it takes a village to raise
beTweenUs&Them: Fallingstars sure is rebuffering alot...
cease: some people cant be raised, some cant be lowered
cease: sounds like dylan lyric
Bambi: oooo, playing Magic or D&D or what Merlyn?
Dexter Fong: Boney: Thanks Coach, I'll remember that after the trainer finishes my injections
klokwkthawed: Tweeny -- you get that when too many people are on -- log off so I can enjoy it, please ;-)))
beTweenUs&Them: Really, cease...
boney: I would have thought you'd stick to good old-fashioned amphetamines, Dexter.
Merlyn: world of warcraft, bambi
Dexter Fong: Boeny, I do...the bark of the Fetamine Tree
boney: You know, pep pills.
Dexter Fong: Pep! We can say it. Principalpoop isn't here
klokwkthawed: Tweeny -- seriously, they're in Seoul and the bandwidth out is limited; it's 6:50AM in Tokyo/Seoul, so people are starting to load it up before going off to work
boney: Hey Merl
beTweenUs&Them: They have good taste, Klok.
klokwkthawed: Tweeny -- once they are off at work, it should drop; my dropouts have stopped for now
Dexter Fong: Catherwood, what time is it in Tokyo/Siam
||||||||| Catherwood says "It's 12:14 AM, exactly!"
Merlyn: hi boney
Dexter Fong: Ha! KLok; Catherwood sidputes you
||||||||| Catherwood pretends not to hear Dexter Fong
boney: Charlie the drummer's on a roll
Dexter Fong: Dexter Fong tries not hear Catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood steps up to Dexter Fong and queries "Did you want something?"
klokwkthawed: Tweeny -- check the fallingstars playlist of the last 10 on -- it's almost always eclectic; I've learned a lot without having to go anywhere and get anything]
beTweenUs&Them: Catherwood has SIDS.
||||||||| Catherwood steps over to beTweenUs&Them and says "oh, fuck off beTweenUs&Them!"
klokwkthawed: catherwood, what time is it in Auckland?
||||||||| Catherwood says "It's 12:15 AM, on the dot!"
klokwkthawed: yeah, right
Merlyn: hey tween, your picture will be on the next cheese log
boney: It's caused by snoring, isn't it?
Dexter Fong: Unfortunately, that dot was is Mr. Roccoco's pocket
cease: cheese log?
Dexter Fong: ..adn he's offshore right now
beTweenUs&Them: Eclectic with a capital E, Klok...
klokwkthawed: (it's 5:52 PM in Auckland)
Merlyn: the chat log is the cheese log
beTweenUs&Them: Thanks, Merl...
Dexter Fong: eclEctic
cease: hot worms?
boney: brb
Dave: there tuned in fallingstars station

klokwkthawed: yeah, the earlier Steely is good stuff
Dexter Fong: klok: And you're still in your underwear?
klokwkthawed: yeah, that's the recurring nightmare, Dex
beTweenUs&Them: Ah, the underwear-head tax in Barbaria is 50 kharooms...
Dexter Fong: Like the sun always being over the yardarm, somewhere...klok is always in his underwear
klokwkthawed: Job lot has stopped carrying the coin cell batteries that my time converter uses, so this one is on last leggs
klokwkthawed: LOL, Tween
Dave: eh this isn't my fave music, but oh well it could be worse
beTweenUs&Them: Judging by the playlist, Dave, just wait a couple of minutes and it'll be _completely_ different.
cease: im listening to rachel madow, this morn's air america show
Dave: I have a friend who can sing this better than Shania can, smile
cease: and then marc maron will be on at 10
Principalpoop: back, pep huh? torturing me while I was tied up, sadists...
cease: a vertitable Feast of good radio
Dexter Fong: I'm listening to my PC fan
cease: do you listen to air amercia, dex?
Dave: I'm listening to my screen reader blab blab blab at me
Principalpoop: never quiet or silence with tintinitius
beTweenUs&Them: I love Randi Rhodes.
klokwkthawed: you know, the fan on most PCs is the same 8 cm diameter as the Chainik (teapot) socket on a Samovar?
Dexter Fong: Cat: From time to time, depends on what mood I'm in
beTweenUs&Them: Like to hear her, Dave :=)
Principalpoop: I prefer sandy steets
Dexter Fong: blab blab
klokwkthawed: dave's screenreader sounds weird
Dexter Fong: Pp: I prefer asphalt highway
cease: i don tlike the cal in shows but well done commentary like rachel or comedy like maron and franken or good interviews can fill the whole day
beTweenUs&Them: Only in Winter, P...
cease: yes randi is a wonder, but i dont like the call in format
cease: she ends up talking to either people in total agreement or the Other, which has its own realm
klokwkthawed: I can't deal with that much political stuff; just stick to Talking Points Memo for the highlights and stay away from US news except NYT
Dave: have you heard it klok?
Bambi CNI
beTweenUs&Them: Her rants are truly entertaining.
cease: are you back to firesing on cni, bambi?
cease: she is really well informed and empathetic
Bambi: lol
klokwkthawed: dave -- i read how ken describes it
Bambi: nope, not tonight Cat ... Saturday evening
beTweenUs&Them: She is indeed well-informerd.
Principalpoop: can you assign different voices to different people in chat dave? my voice is similar to richard nixon
cease: yeah josh is on air america all the time
cease: kos and other bloggers too
cease: i relaly like oliphant on franken. but franken has great guests always
Dave: oh yeah he's heard it, lots of pople say it sounds like chinese
beTweenUs&Them: My Grid. I'm starting to spell like W talks.
cease: maj report has gone far too much call in without janeane
klokwkthawed: cat -- i just read his blog. Yep, he moved to NYC, so it's easier to show up in-studio now
Dexter Fong voice is similar to Mr. X
cease: marshall?
cease: i thought he was based in philly
cease: his blog is really expanidng
Bambi: Catherwood what time is it?
||||||||| Catherwood says "It's 12:28 AM, on the dot!"
Principalpoop: is the program a free download dave? i would try it
cease: i hope the muchk raker is successful
klokwkthawed: cat - no, he got married, moved to NYC, set up his growing TPM operation there
Bambi: liar! LOL
cease: oh i see
cease: he seemd so philly boosterish
Bambi sings Moon Raker ....
Dave: pp there is a demo available at www.gwmicro.com
cease: where is kos?
cease: not nyc
klokwkthawed: cat -- didn't catch that, maybe so
cease: west coast?
beTweenUs&Them: Moon Raker.... wider than a mile...
Dexter Fong: Okay folks. gpt tp gp//see y'all next time
klokwkthawed: dunno kos, cat, don't know
Bambi: TPM ... Trusted Platform Modules? GRRRRRRRR!
klokwkthawed: nite Dex
Dexter Fong: o o o missing from last communicative
Dave: but you'll probably need to change the rate and stuff of the speech, well, I have this thing talking pretty fast
Bambi: night Dex
Dexter Fong: Noght Klok
||||||||| Dexter Fong says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, Dexter Fong exits at 12:30 AM.
Principalpoop: DECtalk demo or window-eyes demo
Dave: I am having ie issues, hold on a sec
Principalpoop: windows xp has a primitive version installed
klokwkthawed: sheesh
Principalpoop: night dex
klokwkthawed: Bambi -- http://www.talkingpointsmemo.com
beTweenUs&Them: What's a Trusted Platform Module?
Principalpoop: who has sheesh?
Dave: do NOT use the XP screen reader, it is absolute shit
Principalpoop: ok
klokwkthawed: Tweeny -- a way for Microsoft to make money from people
Dave: I hate it when I add a winamp bookmark and then a day or so later the ip has changed, making it useless, grrrrrr
Bambi: ah, ok Klok..thanks
klokwkthawed: Talking Points Memo (TPM) is a liberal political blog
beTweenUs&Them: The Greek guy looks like a mob boss, Klok.
Bambi: tongue in cheek play on words then ... TPM sucks!
Principalpoop: oops it is late, I will give you a review next week dave, good luck on exam and all have a super week ciaooo
||||||||| Principalpoop is thrown out the window just as the clock strikes 12:34 AM.
beTweenUs&Them: Bye, P...
Bambi: (The TPM trusted platform modules)
Dave: I have little patience to read blogs
klokwkthawed: Dave -- I hate that, too. You can edit the bookmark to use the playlist file, if one is available. A playlist file is just a wrapper URL that contains the actual URL. Hopefully, the wrapper stays constant, but the URL inside can then change all it wants. Assumes whoever maintains the stream updates the wrapper, of course
Bambi: and all other forms of TCPA
klokwkthawed: the author of the TPM blog, as Cat points out, appears regularly on Air America and elsewhere, so I'm sure anything momentous he has to say comes out at those times, too
Bambi: night princep
Dave: oh dear lord PP and window-eyes, he should know that the mouse is not supposed to be used, it's for people who can't see the print, if he wants a magnification program, then that 's a different animal
Dave: how do I do that klok?
Dave: you're entering foreign territory for me on this one
Bambi: X2 would likely work for him...I think that's what it's called
beTweenUs&Them: May I see your passport, please?
Bambi: sign z papers!
klokwkthawed: Dave -- you first have to find the .pls file that points to the stream. If you can't find that, you can't use it, of course. Can be hard sometimes on Korean sites, whether or not you can see the screen! And lots of places don't bother. But it is going to be soemthing with .pls after it.
Bambi: well, hate to do it but gotta get to bed! Nytol! Great to see you all! See ya next time...same bat channel..
Dave: ok
beTweenUs&Them: Bye, Bambi...
Dave: later queen bambi! smiles and hugs
klokwkthawed: Once you find that, you then edit bookmarks in Winamp and just dump the .pls URL over whatever numeric salad that's there (you might save the numeric one somewhere in case this does not work)
klokwkthawed: nite Bambi
beTweenUs&Them: Speaking of z's, gotta catch some myself. So long, until last time, again...
||||||||| 12:40 AM -- beTweenUs&Them left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
Dave: hmmmm ok
klokwkthawed: Winamp bookmark edit dialog has two entry boxes; top one is name, bottom one is URL
klokwkthawed: the bad URLs are things like 'cause as you say, they change every time the station moves to a new server
Dave: and I paste the name of the .pls in to the url box
klokwkthawed: dave - yeah
Dave: ok easy enough, thanks
boney: Hey (Merlyn)
klokwkthawed: dave -- for example, the fallingstars.co.kr Tweeny and I are listening to has a numeric URL of:
Dave: well I guess I will be going
boney: Nite Dave
Dave: oh...I can wait klok if you want to give me an example
boney: hey klok
klokwkthawed: but the smart thing to do is bookmark (or edit the bookmark) the playlist (.pls) URL: http://www.fallingstars.co.kr/ch1.pls
klokwkthawed: hi boney
boney: this just in... The Cheney shooting incident was the result of roid rage
klokwkthawed: Dave -- if you look at a .pls file, it usually has something like two or three numeric URLs and Winamp will try them in sequence until it gets a "hit". So the .pls URL tends to work more reliably.
klokwkthawed: that's it Dave ;-)
klokwkthawed: night Dave
klokwkthawed: and I'm getting hungry too
klokwkthawed: Bambi, go to BED! ;-)
boney: hey klok
boney: Nite Dave
klokwkthawed: hi boney
klokwkthawed: what's up?
klokwkthawed: 'cause I'm wandering on shortly
boney: hey klok
boney: Nite Dave
klokwkthawed: roid rage?
klokwkthawed: he's a REPUBLICAN, Boney -- there doesn't have to be a reason...
Dave: ok thanks a lot, later all until next week....or maybe not I will be leaving for santa barbara and then might be gone that week after, so it might be 3 weeks from now that I talk to yall, hope all is well until then, byebye!
||||||||| Dave says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, Dave exits at 12:47 AM.
klokwkthawed: well, Bambi wandered off
boney: is being Republican treatable? Maybe a charity should be formed
klokwkthawed: night Bambi, Boney, Merlyn, Cat!
klokwkthawed: boney -- I think it's terminal
boney: don't lose hope
klokwkthawed: boney -- hopefully, just for them, not for the country, although they're working hard at it
boney: I'm going to let you go, klok. Stop squirming!
klokwkthawed: boney -- oh, I think the electorate is bistable; once they push them too far, whole generations will swear off the stuff they're feeding them and things will get better
klokwkthawed: night
||||||||| 12:49 AM -- klokwkthawed left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
boney: Nite
||||||||| At 12:49 AM, boney hurries out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
||||||||| It's 12:50 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Bambi - dead from dengue fever
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Merlyn: oops, I'm still here...nite everyone
||||||||| "Hey Merlyn!" ... Merlyn turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 12:58 AM, I don't have to go yet!"...
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 1 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| It's 1:30 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| cease - dead from measles
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| sunny_123 enters at 4:20 AM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and scurries off to the Chapeau Manger.
||||||||| sunny_123, spotting Bradshaw, runs into The Chapel.
||||||||| 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."
