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 April 20, 2006 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood enters with porgie close behind, mumbles something about disrupting his 6:06 AM tree-stunting plans, and dashes off to the anteroom.
porgie: sorry to get up catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood hands up.
porgie: get up catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood hands up.
porgie: can I have a cup of coffee catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood walks up to porgie and says "Did you need me?"
||||||||| It's 6:20 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| porgie - dead from measles
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood leads Atul into the room, accepts an I.O.U. as a gratuity, mumbles something about 6:44 AM, then departs.

||||||||| Catherwood leads Firebroiled into the room, accepts a wooden nickel as a gratuity, grumbles something about 7:37 AM, then departs.
Firebroiled: The True White Brother is coming home. Remember what the Great Spirit said? If we did what we were supposed to do, and lived according to The Plan, White Brother would finish his work in the East and come back to us......
Firebroiled: and totally screw us over!!
||||||||| At 7:39 AM, Firebroiled vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and snorts derisively "Announcing 'Mudhead', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 8:04 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the anteroom...

Bambi: howdy dear friends :-)
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern, live recordings?'
Bambi: hi Clem I see you are right on the ball!
Bambi: looks like Dave was here earlier .. hopefully he'll be back

cease: live?

Bambi: LOL
Mudhead: who's side are you on?

Mudhead: similar to the old boss?
Mudhead: North Korea?
cease: only the name remains the same
Mudhead: then Mars
Warp: what's the phrase? "media whore"
Boondogalin' Tween: The Chinese might not like that very much, but then they just included Iran into their Sino/Russian organization.
Boondogalin' Tween: Not that it's a problem for Cowboy Shrub.
boney: http://tinyurl.com/ntyhs Warning: AOL will max your computer's volume without informing you. Be prepared to react accordingly.
boney: I'd like to hear Phil Austin sing that song. Maybe change a few of the lyrics.

Bambi: me too boney, if it's a site I really need to get to, I just delete the cookie afterwards if I don't want it.
Warp: Tupid!!!

Bambi: that's a good idea Tweeny ... allow for session
Bambi: I hate sites like that .. IE only ...
Mudhead: im diggin it, I went to see him when he was pumpin that album

Boondogalin' Tween: Hey TOR...

Boondogalin' Tween: That'd be their solution, Merl. "See what I've done for gas prices!"
Warp: nice JL
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "9:37 PM and late as usual, it's Rotonoto, just back from Maryland."

judgepoop faints with pleasure
boney: Sterling Hayden smuggled guns for Yugoslav partisans in WWII. He had cojones of steel. Joe McCarthy crushed him like a bug. The role of paranoid lunatic Gen. Jack Ripper must have been cathartic.

Warp: which reminds me I need to brush my tooth
Rotonoto: I musta missed some news item- whats da Moon been up ta lately?

Boondogalin' Tween: Since McCain's made nice with Falwell, I wonder if Moon's next...

Warp: firefox 1.5 aint it?
boney: If Tracy Ullman starred in a remake of Doctor Strangelove, James Earl Jones could play the part of Colin Powell. Who would play Ripper? I think Ripper would be in Iraq, in charge of the prisons there.

llanwydd: moon lives in ny?
Merlyn: James Earl Jones was in the original Dr. Strangelove
klokwkdog: moon is omnipresent

Warp: I'm so damn lazy
boney: Maybe Jack Nicholson could play the Secretary of Defense.
llanwydd: a stage version of Dr. Strangelove would be interesting
Bambi: Mickey Rourke is just off beat enough that he could actually play the Ripper
klokwkdog: llan -- think higher: make it a musical!
boney: oh God not a musical
llanwydd: you might have to leave out the bomber pilots but a stage version would work
judgepoop: steve reed
Warp: Jack doesn't rhyme with rum
Boondogalin' Tween: Wish he'd do that now, Bone...
Rotonoto: Waaaal, I've hoid of tha holy hand grenade, but this takes it a step further...
boney: in the musical they could leave out the end of the world part
Merlyn: I can see a chorus line of Dr. Strangeloves in wheelchairs in the big "Mein Fürer, I Can Valk!" number
klokwkdog: If CNI has not announced, Dex is out of town and won't be with us tonite

llanwydd: I think so tween
Warp: Cleese is not too old
Bambi: was waiting to see if he did that during the name calling session :-)
boney: Would Group Captain Lionel Mandrake be a man or a woman. Tracy Ullman can do either
cease: isnt cleese better with age?
Bunnyboy: Kline is playing Guy Noir in Altman's PRARIE HOME COMPANION.
judgepoop: let woody allen rewrite and produce it
Warp: cleese is what he is
Warp: screw woody allen
Bunnyboy: And then refuse to film in Paris.
judgepoop: putan can be putan
||||||||| Catherwood leads Dave in through the front door at 9:56 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.

Rotonoto: Bambi, the second one works, less the listen/pls part, am listening now
Bambi: cool ... thanks Merlyn
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
boney: Someone tell me if Phil Austin ever makes it tonight.

judgepoop: oops, asked too late
Boondogalin' Tween: Don't think I've eaten much in the way of Arabic food. Pretty good generally?
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Rotonoto: can be...
judgepoop: what is that stuff they slice on a pole? damn my brain
Rotonoto: watch out for the polyunsaturated geek
Boondogalin' Tween: Catherwood's on a roll this enening...
||||||||| Catherwood strides up to Boondogalin' Tween and says "Someone mention my name?"
Rotonoto: gyro
judgepoop: ahh yes
Boondogalin' Tween: My compliments to the timekeeper.
Rotonoto: pronounced "yee-rrrough!"
judgepoop: that is all I know, and grape leaves or something, maybe greek
Boondogalin' Tween: Thought gyro was Greek.
Rotonoto: dat's the greek variation, in any case...
Bambi: speaking of which ... Catherwood, please pour me a toasted almond.
||||||||| Catherwood brings Bambi a toasted almond.
judgepoop: catherwood was on time, wow
||||||||| Catherwood says "It's 11:02 PM, exactly!"
llanwydd: kibbe mishiyyi is ground lamb mixed with bulger wheat and stuffed with a stuffing of ground beef, onions, pine nuts and lemon juice. The ground lamb has a spice mixture of allspice and cinammon
judgepoop: amazing, all hail M
Rotonoto: well, a gyro has that round chopped up lamb stuff they carve off...
judgepoop: oh it is lamb ok, I thought beef that had been marinated maybe
Bambi: you are right Catherwood! That is the time exactly!
||||||||| Catherwood says "It's 11:03 PM"
Merlyn: not my doing, byron the sys admin sets the clock
Rotonoto: it may have some beef init too
judgepoop: all hail byron
Boondogalin' Tween: But you have to init the beef before you boot the lamb.
Rotonoto: OMG the time is right!
llanwydd: I managed an arabic restaurant many years ago. The chef and owner was Lebanese-American
judgepoop: wb roto lol
Rotonoto: yah- then you mix 'em all together an put 'em on a stick, an...
Merlyn: strike when the time is right
llanwydd: he taught me how to make all kinds of arabic food
Bambi: was his name Klinger, llanwydd? ;-)
judgepoop: my dad said he ate too much lamb as a child and in the navy, we did not eat it often
llanwydd: no, braswell. he's deceased now
judgepoop: so that is lebanese food, not arabic
judgepoop: what do they eat in saudi arabia?
llanwydd: most arabic food is the same
Boondogalin' Tween: Lebanese
judgepoop: never heard of a saudi restaurant
judgepoop: I only know their hash, yum
Rotonoto: saudis always have it catered by indians
llanwydd: syrian and lebanese cuisine are almost identical
judgepoop: one is communist, not sure which
llanwydd: lot of fresh vegetables. lot of lamb
cease: the red with red hair
judgepoop: do they have any taboos? no pork or beef or something like that?
llanwydd: lebanese is not strictly muslim. most lebanese americans are catholic
llanwydd: but we didn't serve pork as I remember
llanwydd: no taboos, though
Rotonoto: no pork, no unescorted or visible women in public
judgepoop: cool, i will eat anything, food is food is good
||||||||| It's 11:10 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Warpo - dead from measles
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
llanwydd: Lebanon was once a catholic nation, officially
||||||||| Catherwood escorts boney inside, makes a note of the time (11:10 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
judgepoop: they don't like pork either, ahh they do the right hand good left hand evil thing
Rotonoto: yeah, but they chopped down all their d\cedars and made cars- er ships
Mudhead: well, im fadin fast
Mudhead: nite all
Boondogalin' Tween: There are some Asian dishes I'd stay away from. Don't want my dinner barking or meowing thank you very much.
Rotonoto: quick- colorize him!
judgepoop: gngl mudhead
||||||||| Mudhead says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, Mudhead exits at 11:11 PM.
Rotonoto: nite...
Boondogalin' Tween: Bye, Mud...
judgepoop: if I was hungry tween, just don't tell me what it is lol
llanwydd: If I ever went to china I'd bring my food with me
Bambi: night Mudhead
llanwydd: I think i'd even stay away from mcdonald's
judgepoop: I like mine processed too, no head shapes or eyeballs please
Boondogalin' Tween: I hear Thai food is good. Spicy.
llanwydd: Yeah, I like thai
Merlyn: thai food mary's in slaughtery square
Boondogalin' Tween: Yeah, keep the fish head soup, if you will.
judgepoop: many people love thai food, I cannot enjoy it
llanwydd: lot of coconut flavoring
Boondogalin' Tween: What about it, Judge?
judgepoop: I like coconut
judgepoop: too hot, no fun
llanwydd: my favorite cuisine though, is Indian. Probably always will be
Rotonoto: nite all, Roto must wander off...
Dave: I like thai food a lot, grew up on a lot of that stuff
Boondogalin' Tween: Light your cigarette, eh?
judgepoop: I know the taste is underneath there, I never find it, too hot
judgepoop: night roto and bozoette hehe
Rotonoto: reeebussssss!
cease: you can starve before you get it untied
||||||||| At 11:14 PM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Rotonoto!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
judgepoop: jump jump jump
Dave: I like indian food llan, but it's so fucking expensive to get good stuff, at least in CO, now Japanese food? mmmm love it, but again expensive
Boondogalin' Tween: Got a flyer for an Inonesian restaurant the other day. Anyone tried it?
llanwydd: well I have gotten very hungry so I am going to the wal-mart grocery. ours stays openall night
judgepoop: roanoke is not known for its restaurants, botetourt has fast food place near 81
Boondogalin' Tween: Indonesian
judgepoop: no no no, do not give wal-mart money
llanwydd: good night, folks. see you next thirsty
Boondogalin' Tween: Bonnie apetit, LL
judgepoop: gngl llanwydd, break a leg
klokwkdog: nite roto, llan
boney: For the next hour or so, I'll be creating ART OF THE INSANE.
klokwkdog hates wal-mart grocieres
klokwkdog: stand in line for 4 hours trying to checkout
judgepoop: walmart tore down a mountain near me and put up a super market, I never go there
boney: Perhaps I should peruse Phil Austin's blog for inspiration.
cease: you speak fro al the insane?
Boondogalin' Tween: They've got one here at a new superstore, but it's just too freakin' big. No fun to shop.
||||||||| At 11:17 PM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, klokwkdog!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
||||||||| Catherwood escorts klokwkdog in through the front door at 11:17 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
judgepoop: link your letters boney
boney: All of the insane speak for me, cease.
judgepoop: art linkletter hehe
Boondogalin' Tween: Tried to use their self-bag checkout. What an abortion. Their equipment wasn't working properly and ended up nuking the PIN on my debit card.
Boondogalin' Tween: That's beside the fact that you shouldn't give Walmart your money.
boney: Linklater is currently doing post production work on Philip K. Dick's SCANNER DARKLY
judgepoop: I have seen that at krogers, I will wait for the kinks to be worked out
boney: Another Phil, another Dick, another Linklater.
judgepoop: plus cashier folks should have employment
judgepoop: this is terrifying
boney: http://www.philipkdick.com/films_scanner.html
Boondogalin' Tween: And some who really knows how to bag would be faster & better anyway.
judgepoop: I know that face, the guy from matrix and the history movie thing
judgepoop: ahh keno reeves, related to steve reeves?
porgie : http://www.sandfantasy.com/
Boondogalin' Tween: The Randall's chain here used to have an online service called Peapod. You did your shopping online, and a "personal shopper" would do a really good job of picking out the freshest stuff and then have a delivery persson bring it to your door. All for about a 5% surcharge. Guess it wasn't profitable.
porgie : just watched this awesome
boney: Bar codes have never been so frightening.
boney: And the retro cyberpunk font.
boney: Really scary.
judgepoop: sure, people who wanted only a carton of milk only got that, I fill a cart when I go to get a carton of milk
judgepoop: there is a new barcode thing, radio frequency somethingagig
boney: It's like Keeno is pork in the WalMart grocery store checkout
klokwkdog: Albertson's does the Peapod thing on the West Coast, Tweeny. Stop & Shop has the service here. It's a little pricey, but I knew someone without a car who found it much better than taking a taxi
ah.clem: there ya go Dave, Bozos running now
boney: It's all so automated and impersonal
klokwkdog: RFID
cease: that would make sense, klok
judgepoop: that is it, they have them in passports too, everywhere
Boondogalin' Tween: All depends on how busy you are I guess, Klok.
klokwkdog: Britain is going to require everyone to get RFID passports by 2010
boney: The bar code on your forehead is the sign of the beast
judgepoop: it was a bracelet in this perfect day
Boondogalin' Tween: I don't see how we're going to avoid a national ident card of some sort. Expecially with the immigration issue going the way it is...
judgepoop: had your medical file too, to be sure you got the medicines that calm you
boney: The general Rummy put in charge of the prisons and black ops in Iraq believes he is fighting the Battle of Armageddon
klokwkdog: Tweeny -- if you have to shop by taxi, it costs $20+ just to get to the store. If you don't walk too well, it's worse. Having someone deliver your choices made online and bring the bags to the kitchen can be super and $20 for that isn't much.
Boondogalin' Tween: Gettin' a little to close to Mr. Levin's book, eh?
judgepoop: it has been installed by requiring states to include certain info on every drivers license if they want transportation dollars
porgie : Back
boney: If he gets put in the looney bin before he starts World War 3, he should do some art therapy for the insane
judgepoop: you bet tween
Boondogalin' Tween: Yeah, it's sure worth it in that scenario, Klok.
judgepoop: FOM friends of moon
Boondogalin' Tween: FOM?
judgepoop: wb porgie
boney: They believe he is insane. But he outranks them. His option, command.
judgepoop: friends of moon, the messiah
||||||||| It's 11:30 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| llanwydd - dead from intense demonic possession
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
judgepoop: exactly boney
boney: It's the quintessential struggle between good and evil. This is the endgame.
boney: Isn't it obvious, Mandrake?
judgepoop: I am not scared, there are 100s of different christian sects, they cannot agree on a day for the sabbath for christs sake
boney: Church of the Self-fufilling Prophecy
Boondogalin' Tween: Well seekers, is the The End? Or is it only... No, it's The End...
judgepoop: last gasp, gore got more votes, we were at war and bush almost lost
Boondogalin' Tween: No doubt, Bone. Once you get the mindset...
judgepoop: the internet is changing the discussion, the msm cannot get away with lies, for long anyway
cease: is that like a headset?
Boondogalin' Tween: Sure hope something come out that _forces_ the Congress to impeach.
Bambi: ...
Dave: oh man I love the sound of that vinyl, I want it!
Boondogalin' Tween: A new accessory for the iPod, Cat. Neural interface.
cease: the vinyul sound
judgepoop: yes, it is alive, alive I say
klokwkdog remembers buying five of the first FST albums on vinyl from "the nice price" bin at the record store & sending them to a friend. $4 each
Bambi: yes, vinyl is cool :-)
Boondogalin' Tween: If I insert some scratches and lower the quality, will you buy a CD from me, Dave?
Dave: I've forgotten how much I liked this record, it really holds together well,
boney: Neil Young likes vinyl
judgepoop: good memory klok, I have no idea what I paid
cease: i bought electricain as soon as it hit the record store
klokwkdog: of course, $4 in US money back then would be worth $2500 today with inflation...
Bambi: vinyl sound is classic ...
boney: I get moist-eyed about AIFF files
cease: this has been my fave since i frist heard it
Boondogalin' Tween: Actually, vinyl does have a very nice quality to it.
cease: but only as the last act of a 4 act play
klokwkdog: vinyl sound sucks, IMO. it's all a myth
Dave: no I will not tween, nice try, I'm not that dumb, I find it funny that a lot of people like to put that sound in shitty hiphop songs, and I forgot how funny this lecture part is of the history section
boney: OK, so an album is half a gig... MPEG compression ruins the sound.
Boondogalin' Tween: Jackson Browne is an analog freak. The only thing digital about the Looking East album is the CD you purchase. I like the sound of good tape recording.
cease: this is the sound of a lotta world fairs pavillions
cease: they were defitniely riffing on that
klokwkdog: i was never so glad as when CDs came out, and I was outraged that they didn't use log encoding for the sound
cease: this la brea man was in new york worlds fair pavillions
boney: Half a gigabite, I should say
judgepoop: new worlder klok
cease: some of hwich came to disneyland thereafter
klokwkdog hates tape hiss
Dave: it's great to hear this in a college dorm where I know most wouldn't get it, if any
cease: i am amazed that anyone gets anything out of pfiresign
Boondogalin' Tween: Don't know from log encoding.
cease: they are not numerous
Boondogalin' Tween: Pretty negligable at 30ips 2".
porgie : .
klokwkdog: tweeny -- telephone system sends calls via digital, but they use log coding. only 8 bits, but the bits are all concentrated on the low-amplitude end
judgepoop: insightfulness and patience are not common commodities dave, get over it
klokwkdog: Bell was a scientist and discovered that the ear was less sensitive as sound gets louder; it also masks fine detail
Merlyn: WHAT?
Dave: my psych is very much familiar with FST, mentioned them to her the other day, she's great
judgepoop: eh klok? didn't catch that
Boondogalin' Tween: Have to read up on his work.
klokwkdog: so telephone audio is digitized in linear decibels instead of linear voltage or power
Dave: oops, psych professor
Bambi: yes, I was just thinking the same thing .. many do not have the patience to listen closely to anything to get all the nuances.
Boondogalin' Tween: Hey, welcome to the sanitarium Dave ;)
klokwkdog: the result is that for the same number of bits, you can have far more dynamic range without being able to hear any difference in the quality
judgepoop: bend over and roll up your arm
Boondogalin' Tween: FST is like a good Prog Rock recording. Headphones really help with the details.
Boondogalin' Tween: Interesting concept, Klok.
klokwkdog: that's how the dBx compression system worked. anyone with reel-to-reel that was serious had a dBx unit
judgepoop: analog is not obsolete
Boondogalin' Tween: I had a TASCAM 388 8-tk 1/4" recorder with DBX. At least in the old days, DBX sounded much better than Dolby. I've heard that Dolby SR was a great improvement though.
Bambi: flipping the record over lol
klokwkdog: doesn't matter much now; we can buy SuperAudio CDs or DVDs that have 20 or 24-bit encoding and nearly 100 khz digitizing -- I can't argue with that
Boondogalin' Tween: Digital's come a long way, for sure.
judgepoop: I had an idea for a record player in the car, worked like a cd player now
klokwkdog: tweeny -- dBx was linear over frequency. Dolby had all kinds of frequency compensation tricks and shelving
Dave: if anyone wants a good place to look for vinyl, www.gemm.com has lots of sellers, looking for bozos lp, found a lot of 'em in various conditions, but I can't buy until next month
klokwkdog: Dolby was a very complex refinement of the same type of stuff they did for vinyl (RIAA) and tape (NAB) to compensate the frequency response
judgepoop: somebody should make a laser that acts like a phonograph needle on vinyl
klokwkdog: dBx was straight compression: same amount at 20 Hz as at 20 KHz
Boondogalin' Tween: With the Dolby they were using professionally in the mid-70's you could really hear the effect on the high end. Alot of engineers didn't like it.
klokwkdog: Poop -- somebody does
klokwkdog: google it
judgepoop: cool
boney: Firing up Apple X11, firing up GIMP 2.2... Art of the Insane, it won't be long.
klokwkdog: just be sure to inflate wallet before purchasing...
judgepoop: super cool, i have a love hate relationship with technology
ah.clem: they have those, jp
Dave: what I would like to know is how did they record all this? I mean, how did they do the slowed-down thing of Dr. Memory
judgepoop: thanks I will
cease: tht gap is too long to be on the cd
klokwkdog: Dave - multitrack recorder. They just added more and more layers
Boondogalin' Tween: Thanks for the link, Dave.
judgepoop: the beatles did fantastic things with the primitive technology they had
Boondogalin' Tween: And you can always fly-in tape from other machines. Pre-record the Dr. Memory bit and add the effect later.
cease: george martin was the firesign theatre of music
cease: bergman wanted to start the beatles of comedy
klokwkdog: FST have stated that on the orig. albums, just as they needed more effects and layers, the studio had added a tape unit with more tracks...
Boondogalin' Tween: George Martin rules. Sgt. Peppers with 4-tracks? Yikes... Electric Ladyland was 4-tk also.
Dave: true, true, now that I listen to it, that makes sense, but they slowed it down...ah so many questions
boney: That's why Peter Bergman married Bozo Nono
judgepoop: yes, seamless not tricky presentation
cease: i thought he married someone else
cease: i met her but forget her name
cease: had some fame as comedien once
Dave: hehehe I managed to find a copy of Pepper in mono, not in m- condition but decent enough, cover looks great apparently, record sounds fine, but it's in mon I'm so happy,
judgepoop: joanne whooley?
boney: Who did "I'm a fuckin' genius" ? It was a National Lampoon bit.
Boondogalin' Tween: That's a rare bird, Dave.
boney: fockin' genius
judgepoop: james taylor's first record had half the vinyl, it sagged in your hand
Dave: it is, and it was about 40 bucks with shipping, I want an m- copy but it's gonna cost about 250 bucks, not quite ready to pay that much yet
Boondogalin' Tween: They did all sorts of crazy stuff with tape back in the old days, Dave. The long echo loops on Dark Side of the Moon were achieved by pulling the tape away from the recorder and looping it around mic stands.
Dave: 1968 with Paul Mccartney on bass, yes? that record? don't have it in any form
boney: Ah... Magical Misery Tour. Radio Dinner.
Dave: I've never liked dark side, not a big floyd fan but might just buy it on vinyl just to have it,
Bambi: ...
Boondogalin' Tween: Lampoon did some great stuff.
judgepoop: the letters were always exquisite
boney: Didn't NatLamp also do Tragical History Tour?
Boondogalin' Tween: It is a vinyl classic, Dave. Alan Parsons, who was 2nd to George Martin on Abbey Road produced it.
klokwkdog: flanging like on itchygoo park was done by playing one machine vanilla and mixing a sync'ed copy and rubbing one's thumb on the flange of the tape reel, delaying the playback slightly
porgie : ..
ah.clem: I really enjoy the dark side of the moon, but headphones a must
Boondogalin' Tween: SMPTE is a wonderful thing.
Dave: could someone tell me what this all hail marx and lenin album is? it's on ebay and gemm, pardon misspellings
Boondogalin' Tween: Much better with phones.
boney: Tony Hendra, voice of John Lennon... Melissa Manchester, piano, voice of Yoko Ono, Chistopher Guest, Arranger, Chistopher Cerf, Composer
Dave: I know it is, I should just get a copy and listen to it for once
klokwkdog: tweeny -- wasn't the Mellotron just a box with a bunch of tape loops hung over tape heads so that when you pressed the key, that loop played one cycle? they had aluminum tabs to do the auto-stop, just like radio station promo carts
Dave: isn't that a...oh what's it called, the one with the tape recorders under the keays
Boondogalin' Tween: Yep, exactly Klok. Wakeman had something built called the Birotron which was much better. Used looped 8-track carts so there was no playback time limit.
Boondogalin' Tween: The Chamberlin was the same principal as the Mellotron.
boney: Melissa Manchester sang on Deteriorata, also
judgepoop: when nick danger shoots nancy, the stereo bullet goes through your brain
Dave: that's it, the chamberline, thanks, used on a record of mine that's a fave
boney: Melissa Manchester impersonating Yoko Ono? It must have been hard for her to MISS the high notes
Boondogalin' Tween: The eMu Vintage Keys Plus MIDI module has some great samples of the Mellotron and Chamberlin.
Boondogalin' Tween: I would think it impossible to impersonate Yoko.
Dave: what's that tween? intrigued,
Boondogalin' Tween: Can you imagine practicing the part?
Dave: the midi module you mentioned
Boondogalin' Tween: A rack-mount MIDI module you can hook up to a MIDI keyboard or sequencer. Not made anymore, but available on eBay.
boney: You are a fluke of the universe. You have no right to be here. Whether you can hear it or not, the universe is laughing behind your back
Dave: ok this part if you're there on the bozos feed, how did they do the reverb thing on dr. memory
||||||||| Catherwood walks in wearing his pyjamas, yawns, and mumbles "It's midnight here in New York city"...then he falls over and starts snoring loudly..
Boondogalin' Tween: Used to have a Vintage Keys. Lots of fun pretending to be Wakeman ;)
Dave: I'm sure it's expensive as hell on ebay
Dave: what's it called?
judgepoop: sure boney, sell me your kidney
boney: the lyrics to "I'm a fockin' genius" were John Lennon's actual words, taken from an interview he did for Rolling Stone.
klokwkdog: Dave -- they may be using a vocoder plus some tremolo?
Boondogalin' Tween: Around $200-300 last time I checked, depending on condition.
klokwkdog: They had a huge CBS studio to play in at the time
Boondogalin' Tween: The comany is eMu Systems, the device is Vintage Keys/Vintage Keys Plus (which has the Chamberlin).
Boondogalin' Tween: Way before vocoders, Dave...
Merlyn: see you folx next week...
Boondogalin' Tween: Bye Merl..
Dave: oooo Dave found an m- copy of bozos for 22 bucks, hmmmm taking a look at it now
klokwkdog: The amount of studio time FST used to make the first few albums would cost a bloody fortune today; nobody even paid much attention then
judgepoop: gngl M

Bightrethighrehighre: sumer isa cumin in....

llanwydd: I'm sore all over from working in my garden
