A Firesign Chat


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 June 01, 2006 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Firebroiled close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 8:16 AM tree-stunting plans, and dashes off to the Aviary.
Firebroiled: Hot Dog! Yes, Dear Friends, a mighty Hot Dog is our Lord! I’m not talking about Hate! No, I’m talking about Ate! Dinner at Eight! Let’s eat!
||||||||| "8:16 AM? I'm late!" exclaims Firebroiled, who then runs out through the french doors and down through the bushes.
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood announces: "5:20 PM and late as usual, it's JustAnotherGov'tTweeny, just back from Elmertown."
JustAnotherGov'tTweeny: Has this chat been authorized?
||||||||| JustAnotherGov'tTweeny hurries out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's JustAnotherGov'tTweeny?! It's 5:20 PM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in at 7:41 PM, dragging cpfirezine by one leg and asks "Can anyone vouch for this Yahoo ™?"
||||||||| It's 7:50 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| cpfirezine - dead from measles
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| 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 ah,clem disembarks at 8:53 PM.
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern, Spaceman,'
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, June 01, 2006 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"

JustAnotherGov'tTweeny: She didn't take off her body suit, Dex.
Dexter Fong: Tween: Don't blame her..all that sand

doctec: i loved breaker morant

Dexter Fong: almost as good as the Assyrian charge against Bathsheba

Mudhead: Heres some salt Honey
JustAnotherGov'tTweeny: NM has a Dem Gov. Thrank Grid.

Honey Sanchez: ah a shot of tequila would be nice, catherwood please may i have a drink?
||||||||| Catherwood walks right past Honey Sanchez
JustAnotherGov'tTweeny: One of the reasons I moved to TX was Richards. ooops...

Honey Sanchez hangs on and listens
llanwydd: I wonder if I was the first to figure out the answer to the porridge bird question
JustAnotherGov'tTweeny: Sloopy-san hang on...
Rotonoto: Secret password: "Hai, dozo!" Countersign: "Don't call me Dozo!"
llanwydd: it eluded me for years but I figured it out somewhere around 2000 or 2001
doctec: it depends on which section of rite of spring you are talking about lland - and how much of it you need. some of it is pretty straightforward, other parts are incredibly dense - a lot of work there
JustAnotherGov'tTweeny: Frowwob rubba rine...
Honey Sanchez: Hai! were all dozos wanna squeeze the dweeze?
Honey Sanchez: was it "42" llan?
llanwydd: about the first half, actually, doc
doctec: thankfully, the holst and prokofiev segments the movie guys want from me are short and not too complex - also easy for me to pick out all the parts so i don't have to work from the score
Mudhead: fair for all thats no fair to anyone
llanwydd: 42? Not in my estimation
doctec is not particularly adept with dots on paper, having been blessed/cursed with "good ears"
Rotonoto: exit left to Funway...

JustAnotherGov'tTweeny: This is the 1st half? Not sure I want to see the 2nd...
klokwkdog: my fave Rite of Spring is by Birdsongs of the Mesozoic
llanwydd: prokoffiev is one of my favorites. especially the 1st Symphony
doctec: cat: yes - they didn't get me a cut of the film to work with until last summer, and they've changed it quite a bit three times since then so a lot of the early work has been scrapped
JustAnotherGov'tTweeny: Klok's been listening to Boom Dot Bust.
Rotonoto: Oh, favorite rite Fertility Rite...
llanwydd: not familiar with birdsongs
Dexter Fong: llan: You gotta get out more then
JustAnotherGov'tTweeny: Keyboards for Yes: www.khoroshev.com
doctec: lland: the first half of rite of spring - that's about 20 mins of music (!)
Hemlock Stones
JustAnotherGov'tTweeny: Austin Aikido
Dexter Fong: afk for refill
doctec: lland: as much as i would enjoy tackling something like that, it would be a lot of work and i couldn't do it for nothing
llanwydd: I know. Caligari would take about an hour and a half of film
klokwkdog: llan -- many of the people from BS went on to Mission of Burma
doctec: unless of course you're willing to wait a couple of years for me to get it done in piecemeal fashion
JustAnotherGov'tTweeny: It's a stampede!
Honey Sanchez: i refuse to do most anything for nothing now
doctec: for my soundtrack work i'm using a combination of "reason" (http://www.propellerheads.com") and the synful orchestra plug-in ("http://www.synful.com")
JustAnotherGov'tTweeny: Get a few Moogs and call it a day, Doc... ;)
llanwydd: most of my artistic output has been "labor of love" as they say. I dream of getting paid
doctec: lland, you might want to check out the synful.com site, there's a demo of the first couple of minutes of the rite of spring what was created using the synful orchestra plug-in exclusively
doctec: THAT was created - not what was created (Sheesh)
llanwydd: although I got paid well last year on tour in Diary of Anne Frank

LiliLament: Klok: I will. Opera was giving me grief, and I refuse to touch Internet Exploder.
Bunnyboy: Well, BLAH back, mon.
Phil Austin: Hi, Lil. Things are good
cease: id like to see that, bun
Honey Sanchez: Irie, mon
Hemlock Stones: yes, Klok, used to be 2 shillings and six pence till decimilisation in 71 when it disappeard

cease: very entertaning
porgie: it vanished mysteriously
Bunnyboy: Yesyes
principalpoop: it's your thing, do what you wanta do, I can't tell yah, who to sock it to
Hemlock Stones: about 12 and one half percent of a £
Bunnyboy: Molly Spoilsport.
Bunnyboy: Ewige Blumenkraft!
LiliLament: Phil, I'm actually doing the VA thing to save money on my drugs and co-pays. If you tell the VA that you are on antidepressants, they whisk you into the psych emergency ward and give you a breathalizer.
principalpoop: how many pfpfinnings is that?
klokwkdog: ah, so it's like pieces of eight, English style
principalpoop: yes, yes
Honey Sanchez remembers when a peso was about 12.5 % of a yankee dollar
Hemlock Stones: yes Klok
LiliLament: So you save money, but your dignity goes down the toilet.
Hemlock Stones: had plenty of silver in it too so if you have any stashed away, probably worth quite a bit more now
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and announces "Announcing 'doctec', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 11:19 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the Aviary...
Bunnyboy: Along with all dem pills.
porgie: and now.......
klokwkdog: Lili -- did you have a T-storm? We're getting the front edge of what looks like has just gone thru your area of CT (trying to decide whether to shut down)
Bunnyboy: lo doc!
llanwydd: welcome back doc
klokwkdog: wb, DT
doctec: yeah, i know, i signed off already...
cease: hey doc
Hemlock Stones: this country, the currency and even Magna Carta are all going down the toilet
LiliLament: Klok, we had rain, but I was on a train. Doc knows better than I do.
Rotonoto: ..
Honey Sanchez: hi bambi
doctec: ...but lili just got back from an (unbeknownst to me) trip to nyc and i greeted her upon her arrival
Hemlock Stones: Hi Bambi
doctec: when i told her phil was on chat, she signed on
Mark Time: love's a real....not fade away...
doctec: and so, here we are...
cease: hi bambi
llanwydd: magna carta is the capital of monaco, isnt it?
principalpoop: hi Bambi, it is hot in Virginia, roanoke matched the record the other day
Bunnyboy: doc, I just saw MAYBE LOGIC, a Robert Anton Wilson doc. I recommend it.
LiliLament: I have to keep him on his toes.
llanwydd: something like that
klokwkdog: BTW folks, if you listen to the Jimmy Lee & Bambi show on Sat., you can hear the cockateel just about sundown
Hemlock Stones: lol llan
Phil Austin: The Big Blonde is looking over my shoulder and says hi to everyone, especially Lil
Bunnyboy: hiya Oona!
klokwkdog: hi right back Phil!
principalpoop: hehe hello big blond hehe
LiliLament: How nice! My very best to the Bog Blonde.

Honey Sanchez: hola oona
Bunnyboy: hiya Bambi!
Merlyn: hi oona
doctec: hi big blonde - thanks for the well you know. klok: yeah, as i was returning home from 8-ball practice tonight, the lightning was very close - quite blinding at times
Merlyn: all women named oona are married to comedians
klokwkdog: Bambi must be happy that you've started playing Nick Danger, Clem! ;-)
LiliLament: Phil, are you and Oona familiar with Dorothy Parker's short story, "Big Blonde"?
Bunnyboy: Hey! What are all dese wimmen doin' hyar? I thought this was Man Nite.
doctec: there were flash flood warnings in hartford earlier this evening
principalpoop: bambi and the big blond say hello at the same time, ahh quinky-dinky
cease: sounds like a nick danger adventure: the curse of the bog blonde
llanwydd: never noticed that before, merl
Phil Austin: Hi to cat as well, she sez. and she wishes to be known as the Bog Blonde from now on
ah,clem: yes, yes, she is
principalpoop: with an e? is she europeane?
llanwydd: we actually had flash floods in ticonderoga today
LiliLament: Getting bogged down, is she?
klokwkdog: somehow, that sounds like another Englishism, Hemlock ;-)
cease: could be a new one of your teals for the olde detective
doctec: lili needs a drink - i'm heading to the kitchen to take care of that now. brb...
cease: to go with the ice man
klokwkdog: one of those bogging expressions...
LiliLament: Oh, thank grid... I'm dyin' heah.
Phil Austin: cat: yeah, I remember that PBS stateside did a version of it a few years ago
klokwkdog: they all bog on the same thing
Bunnyboy: There are so many B's on chat these day. Bubba, Bambi, Big Blonde, Boob...erhm...Bunnyboy!
porgie: I bog your pardon?
Rotonoto: ..
principalpoop: brincibalboob next week for me?
klokwkdog: llan -- is Ticonderoga still there? I was always worried that it was a little insubstantial...
LiliLament: I wish I had mine back...
llanwydd: it's not going anywhere klok
porgie: borgie Biretighter
Bunnyboy: Lili: He went to get you a drink.
principalpoop: ahhh, blem
Bunnyboy: Just kiddin', doc!
klokwkdog: ah, they finally got the old fort tied down, eh? that's good to hear
llanwydd: they rebuilt the fort
porgie: catherwood get me a wedgie
||||||||| Catherwood gets porgie a wedgie.
klokwkdog: llan -- they keep doing that
LiliLament: Yes, I know. I can hear him in the kitchen. What a nice welcome home, especially since he had no clue where I was.
llanwydd: true klok
Hemlock Stones: we have some boring old forts too klok
Bunnyboy: That's "fart", Hemmie.
klokwkdog wonders if there is also a game called Clueless...
Honey Sanchez: yes indeed hemlock one lives across the lane from you
Hemlock Stones: i must make my dirty clean
llanwydd: I wouldn't call them boring stones
klokwkdog: some of the best around, as I recall, Hemlock
principalpoop: what is reality?
llanwydd: I saw some old roman ruins when i was there. fascinating!
klokwkdog: but they're generally not as modern as ours ;-)
Hemlock Stones: old sure, but not always good
klokwkdog: "we shall all go to our deaths down Wattling Street"
Bunnyboy: Sorry to say, it's bird burning time. I hope to be a more full service guy next week. Good reception, everybody!
Hemlock Stones: theres quite a few roman remains where i live here in the Pennine hills, but the Celtic and Britons forts are more interresting to me
principalpoop: waffle? mmm waffle waffle
klokwkdog: good-night Bunny!
Honey Sanchez: nite bunny
principalpoop: hophip bunny
Bunnyboy: Robblerobblerobble.
llanwydd: I spent some time in the west country
klokwkdog: Hemlock -- yes, and they're really hard to find, as I understand
cease: by bun
Phil Austin: night bun, it's still daylight, of course, so you can get in some outdoor activities
Hemlock Stones: good night bunny
Bunnyboy: They had to pay Howard Morris for every RobbleRobble session.
Hemlock Stones: its getting light here now too
klokwkdog: speaking of forts, I see that a Titan II missile base, mostly underground, just sold for $780K on eBay
Bunnyboy: Phil: Yeah, I'll soak my head!
LiliLament: I don't know if doc told you, but I've been active lately with a networking forum that has various topics for discussion. I'm indoctrinating them on the joys of Firesign Theatre. Some of the older crew are already hip. Much better than some of the puerile shit that passes for humor, and amazingly topical with some of the current administration. Of course, anything with this administration is ripe for satire.
klokwkdog: 14-foot thick reinforced concrete walls
Honey Sanchez: gee already, hemmie??
Phil Austin: hemlock: what big town are you near? I can't dredge up in my turgid brain where the pennines are
principalpoop: darn, I had bid 779K
llanwydd: ambien's starting to kick in. I better let it do it's thing. See you folks next thoisdy!
doctec: pennines from heaven?
klokwkdog: Poop -- the seller wants all you near-miss bidders to contact in case the winner was playing games
||||||||| At 11:30 PM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Bunnyboy!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
principalpoop: fare thee well brave llan
Hemlock Stones: Pennines are line of hills running north to south, i am in North of england, 45 miles north east of Manchester, 35 north west of Leeds
klokwkdog: Hemlock -- probably give a Google Maps coordinate to put us in our place
LiliLament: Ambien? Avoid the fridge.
Phil Austin: nite, llan. Dream of Wales
Rotonoto: ..
porgie: and the car
doctec: (insert gratuitous wales pun here)
Phil Austin: stones: thanks for that, nice to know where everyone is, comforting somehow
Honey Sanchez: goodnight llan next week see ya then adios
Hemlock Stones: If you look up the village of Winewall on Google you should find it
principalpoop: whereis lancaster from you? I might send you to the library stones
doctec: nite llan
cease: my parents dont know where they are, phil. thats comforting for them
doctec: and if there's no rush on that rite of spring track... :-)
porgie: how did you make your voice do that?
Hemlock Stones: Nino never finds me, he either says New York or AOL
klokwkdog: nite, llan. pleasant walk...
Phil Austin: cat: dreamtime for the old folks
Rotonoto: Bozoette on phonme, sez "hi" to all
Mark Time: time to move along...g'nite and best wishes...
Dexter Fong: Im back and hardly anyone has left and Hi Lilli

Honey Sanchez: nite mark
cease: migth as well speed up
||||||||| Catherwood says "11:32 PM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs Mark Time by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
Dexter Fong: Blast off MARK
Hemlock Stones: Lancaster is about 75 miles north west of us
klokwkdog: google maps keeps wanting to find winewall lane in Pendle, Lancastershire
LiliLament: Hi, Dex. Long time. I haven't been on line here for a while myself.
Phil Austin: good night Mark and hello dex. I feel like Bebop at the end of Immortality. Wait, I am Bebop, right?
Honey Sanchez: thats right klok
Dexter Fong: Lili: Oh, I was here just (away)
doctec: dex: i left and came back
Hemlock Stones: yes Pendle is the Local authority (the council area) and Lancashire is the county
principalpoop: same shire, cool, I have family from there, 1850s
LiliLament: Phil: Hmmm, let me check. Yep, you're Bebop.
Dexter Fong: PHil: YOu are Bebop, but is it Lobo or Loco
Hemlock Stones: do you know where in Lancashire PP ?
principalpoop: wb fong ciao mark
Phil Austin: dex… I'd say it's night here, although still light. I'm the night messenger, the blinking wolf, wondering which way the sun is going, up or down
principalpoop: lancaster, city I guess
LiliLament: Dex: Don't do that! I thought I had fucked up with my capitalizations, and Doc can tell you how fussy I am with that. Makes him nuts. We can't even play Scrabble anymore.
doctec: if the sun is going down there, it is coming up somewhere else
Dexter Fong: Phil: Don't worry, tomorrow is another day
Honey Sanchez: lancaster is in the antelope valley PP
klokwkdog: don't bet on it, DT ;-)
Hemlock Stones: Nice place PP, on the banks of the River Lune a couple of miles from the West Coast
Dexter Fong: Lili: It's a sticky shift key hmm, how did it get sticky?
principalpoop: they moved to new jersey and then blue rapids kansas
Hemlock Stones: i have done many gigs at the University in Lancaster
Phil Austin: awright, the valley of Antelopes, a freeway stretching to Lancashire from Palmdale
LiliLament: I'm sure the sun is rising somewhere I used to work.
Hemlock Stones: its rising here Lili
principalpoop: hehe he said palmdale hehe
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'TOR Hershman', just granted probation at 11:37 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
klokwkdog: DT -- there is nothing like listening to KEXP in the afternoon, then switching to Radio 3 for Late Junction at 5:15 and riding that until the day flips in UK, then listening to a radio station in Auckland doing tomorrow's noon programme...
TOR Hershman: Not Anywhere At All, Howdy do
principalpoop: hello tor
Phil Austin: poop: revealed as a Family Guy watcher, yeah?
LiliLament: Where did you say you were? Merrie olde England? Well, I used to work there.
doctec: blame the sticky keyboard on the cats - they're always up to no good, torturing us because they don't have opposable thumbs
TOR Hershman: TOR bows before Phil
Dexter Fong: High TOR
Hemlock Stones: glad to hear you listen to Late Junction Klok its a good show
principalpoop: yes, another phil told me about adult swim, my life was enriched
TOR Hershman: Say, Phil, did you ever hear moi's "Bean A Poop"????
doctec: klok: lili and i pretty much keep the streaming feed on KCRW
Dexter Fong: Dot T: But some of them have like 2 or 3 or even 4 thumbs
cease: i amo gonna have to find out how to get that in canada
klokwkdog: Hemlock -- sometimes I forget, have to use (groan) IE to listen to the archive
doctec: not much they play that we don't like
doctec: plus it makes us feel like we're in santa monica
Hemlock Stones: not sure about Merrie Lilli, we still have Bliar in the top job
TOR Hershman: Howdy do, Dex
doctec: dex: 2 or 3 or 4 non-opposable thumbs that is
Phil Austin: tor: what in the name of Robinson Jeffers are you talking about? g about
TOR Hershman: Google Tor Hershman beam a poop
LiliLament: Dex: One of our cat's has a thumb. That weird little aberration is called a Hemingway cat.
TOR Hershman: Let moi see if that works
||||||||| It's 11:40 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| llanwydd - dead from jaundice
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
klokwkdog: doctec -- they changed their Music feed and after Morning Becomes Eclectic, I switch to KEXP for an hour or so. I like to hear Cheryl Waters say, "Hit it, Herb" prior to the 4PM events listing (Herb Alpert song)
LiliLament: That's cats.
Dexter Fong: Lili: I think I met him/her at sloppy Joe's in Key west
doctec: tor - that google search brings up http://www.soundlift.com/band/music.php?id=49248
TOR Hershman: Yeah, it works
principalpoop: oops, I checked my notes, manchester, lancashire stones, too many ancestors, I have ivy instead of a tree
TOR Hershman: Well, you said "Poop," just before I logged-on.
doctec: "The Lion Farts Tonight" ... "The Little Bummer Boy" ... great titles there tor
Rotonoto: ..
principalpoop: he was talking to me
LiliLament: Dex: Wouldn't surprise me. The vet says that he looks like he never misses a meal.
Hemlock Stones: i guess we have a lot of genes in common PP
doctec: good thing you didn't say catherwood!
||||||||| Catherwood walks over to doctec and inquires "Did you want me?"
principalpoop: poor llan died, bad open
doctec: no catherwood i didn't
||||||||| Catherwood ignores doctec
doctec: thanks cath
TOR Hershman: TOR bows before Phil for his coolest PBS pledge spot EVER!!!!!!!
doctec: i'll be ignoring you too
klokwkdog: Hemlock -- I thought he was on holiday and letting Prescott play croquet, er run the Country...
TOR Hershman: orrrrrrrrrrr was that the other Phil?
principalpoop: hello cousin, maybe I have a castle there, where my ancestors used to clean up after the horses
klokwkdog: after Bush did one final humiliation on him, I suppose he _did_ want to get away
Hemlock Stones: Prescott couldnt run a piss up in a brewery Klok
principalpoop: lol stones
Dexter Fong: HS: Prescott has a bad prostrate?
Dexter Fong: or prostate
Hemlock Stones: hes in the doo doo now as well over his womanising and playing croquet during work hours while the boss is away
doctec: we'll be starring lili's cat kahlo in a new lo-budget horror flick: "the cat that ate milford"
TOR Hershman: You ancestors too, Prin. No, wait, mine had money before the white men stole it. Being white (well, light maple cream color) that's a real freakin' drag.
klokwkdog: Hemlock -- yeah, but I hear he keeps Brown down to a dull roar or something when he's not playing musical bed with his secretary
Honey Sanchez: bad prostate when he prostrates, dex
TOR Hershman: Doc, moi's likes the kitty movie idea
principalpoop: isn't prostate a conservative blog website?
Hemlock Stones: yes, hes the only one fat enough to keep Blair and Brown apart, if they get close they are like plutonium
klokwkdog wonders if he's reading The Guardian just a wee bit too much... ;-)
LiliLament: Of course, the action will be pretty slow. He eats, he lies down for the rest of the day.
Dexter Fong has been wondering the same
TOR Hershman: Weasaltonium
principalpoop: he is a cat?
doctec: tor: we'll be using cardboard cutouts of the city to scale and coating the fake buildings with stuff the kitty likes - all set to a bombastic cliche horror movie score
LiliLament: Kahlo, my 19 pound cat.. The one who never misses a meal.
Hemlock Stones: Klok, if you read the Guardian and Private Eye Magazine you probably have a pretty good idea of what its like over here
principalpoop: that is not a cat, sounds more like a puma
doctec: guardian.co.uk?
Dexter Fong: Lili: I frieda a Kahlo once
LiliLament: No one does bombastic horror like Doc.
doctec: dex: lol
doctec: gee thanx lil
Honey Sanchez: or a cougar or a catamount PP
Dexter Fong: Then I had to split it with the soundman
doctec: doc tec - bombastic horror is our specialty!
LiliLament: principalpoop: He looks like a puma.
principalpoop: cougar or jaguar, maybe a ferrarri
klokwkdog: Hemlock -- strangely, I get more out of The Register; I'll have to czech out Private Eye
TOR Hershman: In France I am know as La Chat. In Spainish speakin' lands, they call moi Le Gato. In the English they whisper of The Cat. Why? Because I am silent as the fog? No! Because I come and go as a phantom? NO! It is because I enjoy lickin' my crotch most often.
Dexter Fong: Lili: Do the right thing, set him loose on the moors of Dartmoor
LiliLament: Doc, I thought you'd appreciate that!
TOR Hershman: Well, if'in that didn't impress Phil, phuck it.
klokwkdog: Hemlock -- also, when I feel like sticking pins in myself, I'll also flip thru The Economist online
LiliLament: Le Gato? Don't you mean El Gato?
Hemlock Stones: Klok, If Firesign Theater did the News they would be Private Eye
principalpoop: sorry, crotch licking is another chat, i made the same mistake before
Dexter Fong: News Danger = Private Eye
Hemlock Stones: with a touch of Mad Mag too
TOR Hershman: The hounds of the basket cases, ehhh, Dex?
klokwkdog: Hemlock - 'nuff said; I'll go look! ;-)
klokwkdog: shatner made a horror movie? oh, I forgot, all...
Dexter Fong: OOOOOOOOwooooooooo! Werecats of Dartmoor
LiliLament: princ: Not sure if we want to know about your other chat, if it involves licking your own crotch.
principalpoop: gateau is cake
Hemlock Stones: its not as good as it was when the sadly missed Peter Cook and Spike Milligan were the major contributors but its still a good read and with the best cartoons too
klokwkdog: uh, oh, toad away thyme
TOR Hershman: WereEver Cats Of Teflon
Rotonoto: there's a reason most humans are not double jointed...
||||||||| It's 11:50 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Phil Austin - dead from jaundice
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...

LiliLament: Awwww, we drove Phil away.
TOR Hershman: Someone smoked the other joint?
Rotonoto: determination?
klokwkdog: the Reaper got Phil, I think

Hemlock Stones: passes TOR another one
TOR Hershman: Dang Slow PC

principalpoop: wb phil
LiliLament: Aha! He arises from the depths! We thought you had suddenly become disgusted with the dialogue about the crotch lick, Phil.
doctec: phil: oh dear - sounds painful
TOR Hershman: YIKES!!!!!!!!! Sorry about that.
Rotonoto: man falls off of train, reboards at next station- alien science implicated?
LiliLament: That's crotch licking.
doctec: has tor run his web pages through an html validity checker?
Dexter Fong: Run Tor, run
LiliLament: Doc, I didn't get to grab the pic of Kahlo. Could you repost?

Bightrethighrehighre: Phil: do yo still go to Ajo, AZ to camp....?

Phil Austin: big: yes indeed. We nearly bought five acres in Ajo last year. Ajo, the place no one really wants to live.
doctec: lili was in albequerque for a short time
Bightrethighrehighre: Phil: yeah: emptee....uh I mean Tempe....
Dexter Fong: Nino says Big is in Tempe...or is it intemperate

||||||||| Catherwood brings dexter fong a good-night peck on the cheek.
Bightrethighrehighre: PhiI: yeah, I'm an AZ native and I think the place is great....
Bightrethighrehighre: ....stinkin' desert....yeah....!!
Phil Austin: big: the thing about AZ is that it's really four or five states in one. Up on the Mogollon is so different from the south, the east ain't like the west
doctec: ok, even though it's late i think i'm gonna offer to play a game of scrabble with lili - if she'll let me consume some of the tasty leftovers she brought back from nyc this evening
doctec: whaddya say lili?
LiliLament: Phil, I'm sure you are absolutely correct. And that was a long time ago. But then it was so very redneck, and I know that it is still very conservative. Considering that I grew up in Texas and Oklahoma, one would think that I could deal with that. But instead, I recoil at the mindset.
LiliLament: Gadzooks! Doc is willing to play Scrabble with me! I can't pass this up.
Phil Austin: Lil: You can slide around the whole from N
Bightrethighrehighre: unfortunately, right now there's a nasty fire in big park, (village of oak creek), Sedona, house caught fire earlier today, and now it's at at least 50 acres....

||||||||| It's 12:30 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| principalpoop - dead from measles
||||||||| Honey Sanchez - dead from intense demonic possession
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Phil Austin: Lil: sorry, trying to type too much. The trick with AZ and NM is to get to know the Indian people. The reservations, particularly the Navajo and Tohono O'odham are huge and filled with liberals
Bightrethighrehighre: Phil: what native " A" are you making reference to as your same self....?
LiliLament: Phil, OK, I understand. This is good to know. Now the dilemma is between being near water (like CT) or in the desert, which I found beautiful and fascinating.
cease: got any payote?
Phil Austin: Big: I'm getting way too confusing. Hope it's clear now.

LiliLament: Phil: I can understand that. One of the most exhilarating feelings is hiking in the desert, where the air is so pure. And then there is the beauty of the desert plants and the thrill of seeing the petroglyphs.
cease: i just met my cousin this week who i knew as a kid in ridgecrest in 60s
cease: i always enjoyed driving out there
Merlyn: he's following himself
cease: nifght phil
LiliLament: Well, guys, Doc is having a bite to eat and we are going to play Scrabble. So it is time for me to bail out, too.
