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 June 08, 2006 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| 8:30 AM: Firebroiled jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past half hour!"
Firebroiled: O! Miki-san! My topless flower of Toyko Delight! O, baby! Where are you now? Out throwing rods from swift atoom bus with herlpful, handsome butler, Rotonoto? Or do you take a fast Tube Train to International Atomic Occupation Bandit Police Headquarters, to, weeping, implore Lieutenant Brad Shaw for my immediate withdrawl from this dangerous exposition? O, don’t know how much Tough-Guy Dectective can now taking of it be!
Firebroiled: O! Young Guy!
Firebroiled: O! Young Guy! O, gosh! You back! Worried Feeling!
Firebroiled: It must be Boosh..., oh dear, Young Guy
||||||||| Firebroiled leaves to catch the 8:34 AM train to Pennsylvania.
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'riclynsomuah', just granted probation at 3:27 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
riclynsomuah: hello room
||||||||| riclynsomuah, spotting Bradshaw, runs into The Chapel.
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 8:47 PM, dragging doctec by one leg and asks "Can anyone vouch for this yo-yo?"
doctec: hi gang - i will be back later but at the moment i must accompany lili lamont to yon supermarket to procure ancillary foodstuffs for tonight's feast.
doctec: this has been a busy week for me: (1) my laptop's display died - AGAIN!!! (raszzm-frazzm) and i had to send it off to HP for yet another warranty service session
doctec: (2) my pool league team only made it half way through the regional tournament before getting knocked out by another team, so no vegas trip for us this year;
doctec: (3) i finally tool care of a long standing commitment to get beta tape copies of the 1980 pbs series 'oppenheimer' (which i transferred into my pc as mpegs last year) burned to dvds and sent out to a couple of people as promised;
doctec: (4) i made good progress on the movie soundtrack last week and this week - i only have three more segments of music to produce;
doctec: (5) the lodestone shopping cart coding progressed a bit, we're testing the latest changes and hope to have the thing up in the next week or two;
doctec: (6) there is no #6.
doctec: gotta go - i'll be back later.
||||||||| "8:54 PM? I'm late!" exclaims doctec, who then dashes out through the french doors and down through the flowerbeds.
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, June 08, 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 ah,clem disembarks at 9:02 PM.
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern'
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Bambi into the room, accepts three dimes as a gratuity, mutters something about 9:05 PM, then departs.
Bambi smiles
Bambi: hey Clem
ah,clem :)
Bambi: nice Oohs song :-)
||||||||| Catherwood stomps in at 9:12 PM, dragging the_woof by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this yahoo?"
||||||||| 9:12 PM -- the_woof left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
||||||||| Catherwood ushers the_woof inside, makes a note of the time (9:12 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Bambi: it's the woof :-)
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood snorts derisively: "9:12 PM and late as usual, it's SirTweenalot, just back from Elmertown."
SirTweenalot: Pray tell good people, where might I find a shrubbery?
the_woof: i'll be right back
the_woof: and hello all
SirTweenalot: Hey JL, Bambi, Woof...
Bambi: hi Tweeny!
SirTweenalot: How's tricks in sunny Dendron?
Bambi: did you happen to notice the entry today on http://www.bambismusings.com ?
Bambi: well, worked and then drove home in driving rain ... but thankfully only for a few minutes just before I got home
Bambi: was nice and sunny before that :-)
the_woof: what's in the other rooms?
Bambi: well, I think it's best to check that out for yourself ... I didn't find that there was much there ...more of lurking kinda of places
||||||||| Catherwood stomps in at 9:17 PM, dragging ali ben llanwydd by one leg and asks "Can anyone vouch for this web surfer?"
the_woof: hmm
ali ben llanwydd: anybody here?
the_woof: many, as a matter of undisputable fact
Bambi: hi llanwydd :-)
the_woof: but not that many
||||||||| Catherwood ushers cease in through the front door at 9:18 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
the_woof: hello
ali ben llanwydd: evenin cat
Bambi: hi Cat
||||||||| Outside, the 9:19 PM downtown bus from Billville pulls away, leaving SirTweenalot, esq coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
ali ben llanwydd: ghjkl, tween
cease: whats on cni?
||||||||| 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 Dexter Fong disembarks at 9:19 PM.
Bambi: wow, LOL, Tweeny is here twice ... and the newest one is, esq ;-)
ali ben llanwydd: could not infer
Bambi: hi Dex
SirTweenalot, esq: iCab crashed in Classic mode when I tried to open your blog, Bambi. Not the blog page I'm sure. iCab's not all that stable in Classic OS. Works fine in OS X.
Dexter Fong: Ebening Folks
SirTweenalot, esq: Kill SirTweenalot, Manny...
Bambi: P&B is first up tonight on CNI :-)
ali ben llanwydd: bang bang
SirTweenalot, esq: Fong, san...
SirTweenalot, esq: Hey LL...

SirTweenalot, esq: Hey Vanman...
Bambi: ah, ok ...had me worried there for a minute Tweeny ... since the new design seemed to work well in iCab before :-)
SirTweenalot, esq: I'll take a medium massage...
the_woof: i have a computer question
Bambi: Catherwood please pour me a double toasted almond
||||||||| Catherwood hands Bambi a double toasted almond.
cease: unhappy macnam
SirTweenalot, esq: I'm in Firefox/Tiger now. Gonna read yer blog...
ali ben llanwydd: msntv2 is giving me a problem. brb
Bambi: thank you Catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood answers "You're very welcome!"
||||||||| llanwydd enters at 9:23 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and scurries off to the Hat Pack Annex.
llanwydd: b
Dexter Fong: Dopplegangers are swelling the role
Dexter Fong: or roll
llanwydd: das ist besser
Dexter Fong: Besser du bist mein hausfrau
Bambi: that might take some time Tweeny LOL ... that posting has a bazillion links in it ... all great articles with timely info though...
Bambi: wb llanwydd
llanwydd: ich bin nicht
SirTweenalot, esq: Yeah Bambi, that Care2 business really surprised me. You just don't know what people are doing. All the more reason for great firewalls and sniffing programs to root out that sort of thing.
cease: are you night?
Dexter Fong: typical Kraut nihilism
cease: do you see dead people?
llanwydd: The Firewall Theatre
SirTweenalot, esq: Just scanned it. Will take a closer look later. You Mam, are thorough...
Bambi: yep, gotta keep up on that this crap for sure! and no better way than to keep up with the history of said companies
the_woof: ok, i'm about to ask my question, and it may seem very detailed and overdone
Dexter Fong: The Great Firewall of China
the_woof: i have 4 ram slots. right now, i'm using 2 sticks of 512 each in dual-channel. i have 2 other sticks of 256, and both have a different cas latency from the 512 sticks. my motherboard manual says "always install dimms with the same cas latency." could i put the 256 sticks in one channel and the 512s in another and run both at their respective recommended latencies?
SirTweenalot, esq: Only a few keyboard players, Cat...
cease: i thought the Night guy wrote that screenplay
Dexter Fong: Night and Day?
SirTweenalot, esq: Playing keys for The Dead is a hazardous occupation, to be sure...
Bambi: thanks Tweeny :-)
cease: not delivering keys to the Dead is even more hazardous
llanwydd: is hornsby still alive?
Bambi: lol
SirTweenalot, esq: Good one, Cat LOL
Dexter Fong: A Hornsby pipe
SirTweenalot, esq: Mongo like Mr. Hornsby
Dexter Fong: How come you PC geeks didn't answer woof's question
SirTweenalot, esq: Catherwood, get Cat a Dolphin beer, please...
||||||||| Catherwood brings cat a dolphin beer.
the_woof: that's what i was wondering...
Dexter Fong: Woof: Just one of the many services I provide
the_woof: haha i'll keep that in mind, dexter fong
Dexter Fong: Don't mind if you do
SirTweenalot, esq: The Saturday night tech show is more conducive, I suspect. This is when they open the doors to the sanitarium.
||||||||| It's 9:30 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| ali ben llanwydd - dead from pneumonia
||||||||| SirTweenalot - dead from the common cold
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
the_woof: what's the saturday night tech show?
SirTweenalot, esq: Ah, he be not knowing....
Dexter Fong: A tech show that airs on Saturday night
||||||||| Catherwood stomps in at 9:30 PM, dragging Merlyn by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this web surfer?"
llanwydd: the sanitarium where they make brooms?
the_woof: on cni?
Dexter Fong: Holla Web SURFER
||||||||| Bunnyboy waltzes in at 9:30 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
cease: hey merl
Bunnyboy: oh yas

Merlyn: hello
Bunnyboy: That's Headley!
Dexter Fong: Hi BB
SirTweenalot, esq: And basket weavers who wiggle their thumbs and toes...
llanwydd: hi merl and bunnyboy
the_woof: ah. i see.
Bambi: LOL, FST is wonderful for the techy mind ... and very prophetic ... they saw so much so far ahead of it's time ...
Merlyn: I'm surprised there's no comments about rfo.net gone in the firesign newsgroup
the_woof: that's true
Bambi: hey Bunny
cease: listening to franken's show every morning makes me feel like i'm living in minneapolis
SirTweenalot, esq: 6pm Eastern on CNI. You need an IRC client for that one, Woof.
the_woof: ooh
Dexter Fong: Merlyn: Where did it go?
cease: with no references to garrison keeler at all
llanwydd: that's true bambi. I realized that when Falwell became the head of the PTL
Merlyn: me too, cat
the_woof: excellent. what's the irc address?
||||||||| Outside, the 9:32 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving klokwkdog coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Merlyn: Dex, Peter just let the domain name lapse
ah,clem: warm up at 6:30 actually
Dexter Fong: Hey Klok
Bunnyboy: WHAT THIS COUNTRY NEEDS. Gosh, it's been forever since I heard this one.
llanwydd: hi klok
Bambi: hey Klok!
Bunnyboy: And I have it, along with the others.
cease: ok i'm gonna watch halliday try and defeat the orioles instead of the newses
ah,clem: go to cniradio.com for all the info you need. :)
Dexter Fong: Merlyn: That's what happens when you leave things in the hands of amateurs
Bunnyboy: Sure would love an official CD reissue of GIVE US A BREAK.
the_woof: thanks
Bambi: it's great isn't it Bunny :-)
llanwydd: I saw your announcement about rfo on firesgn
cease: forever isnt lnog enough, bun
SirTweenalot, esq: Do you use Firefox Woof? Great browser, and it's got an IRC plugin called Chatzilla that works great.
Merlyn: I think that's coming, bboy
klokwkdog: hi everyone
llanwydd: I always call it fire siggin
the_woof: tween: i do use firefox. i do not have chatzilla, but i'll get it now
klokwkdog: yeah, woof: get on it and do it every day ;-)
Bunnyboy: Yeah, what klok said, hiyall.
SirTweenalot, esq: Hey Bun...
the_woof: haha
cease: siggin?
cease: in the rain?
SirTweenalot, esq: To know you is to loathe you... LOL
llanwydd: siggin as in firesgn thtre
Bunnyboy: Wokkin
Bunnyboy: in the rain
klokwkdog: y'all heard the news today (oh boy) that if you run WindowsXP, it's likely reporting home every day about what you're doing?
Bunnyboy: How does he make his voice do that?
llanwydd: the usenet/gogol group
SirTweenalot, esq: Yikes, Klok...
llanwydd: gogol is the russian version of google
Bambi: hey Merlyn, you 'ole wizard you :-)
cease: so i shoulnd use it, klok?
Bunnyboy: Is "home" where the "heart" is?
SirTweenalot, esq: And howdy, RI...
||||||||| "9:36 PM? 9:36 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Boney should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Boney enters and sits at the bar.
Bunnyboy: Or is that a questionable query?
the_woof: i run xp on my main machine, but it's broken now so i'm on win2k. i haven't heard about that xp thing though
Dexter Fong: Hey Boney
Boney: Catherwood, 9:25 PM.
||||||||| Catherwood walks right past Boney
Bunnyboy: lo Bone
cease: bun, bone, is bin next?
Boney: Never mind.
SirTweenalot, esq: Saw that they just released another beta of the new Win OS. Think James is testing, Bambi?
cease: maybe Bong
klokwkdog: cat -- most people have no choice; if you run WIndows XP, it's so full of security bugs, you have to accept their terms to get patches
Bunnyboy: Bene
Bunnyboy: and duh Jets.
Bambi: yep...bad news for sure Klok ... even if you are legit it still phones home every day and upon each boot ...sucks
Bunnyboy snaps
cease: Beech and Bong, attorneys at, uh, law or something
Boney: Ben A. Dicked
the_woof: what does it report, and why?
Bunnyboy: Watched DRAFTEE DAFFY last night. I forgot how damn funny it is.
llanwydd: Beech Blanket Bongo
Dexter Fong: CNI just went away
klokwkdog: tweeny -- Seagate just announced a laptop disk drive that will only work in Windows Vista
the_woof: mine too
SirTweenalot, esq: I've got OS X checking for new updates periodically, but I doubt it's the same thing...
Merlyn: yep, dex
the_woof: oh, i disabled windows update
SirTweenalot, esq: Wha hoppened to CNI? Sounded like somebody pulled a plug.
Bunnyboy: It's Daffy in rare form: screaming and crying and running so fast he shoots sparks.
Boney: The International Homosexual Conspiracy. http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20060606/ts_nm/pope_gays_dc
klokwkdog: I can't wait until some hacker looses a virus that mungs all the XP license keys and every XP computer in the world says it's running an illegal copy
the_woof: winamp told me it was buffering. now it's playing, but no sound
Dexter Fong: All we are is ducks in the wind
SirTweenalot, esq: Pretty silly marketing if you ask me, Klok.
klokwkdog: you shud heer sound now woof
Bambi: wait a sec ... Clem is checking
the_woof: i most certainly do hear sound
SirTweenalot, esq: CNI's back.
ah,clem: will be back soon
Dexter Fong: Clem: It's back sooner than that
klokwkdog: woof -- CNI radio comes by dialup, so absent the usual studio problems, their ISP sometimes decides to annoy them, too
Bambi: LOL
the_woof: klok: i didn't know that
SirTweenalot, esq: This adminstration is a master at providing "bread and circus". Rather fits with tonight's FST recording :)
the_woof: and i didn't mean to sound offensive there
the_woof: is dial-up still cheaper than broadband?
llanwydd: monty python's bread and circus
Bunnyboy: Great news for Popeye fans: Warner Home Video is releasing all the Popeye theatrical cartoons that appeared between 1933 and 1957, as well as the TV toons from the 60's, 70's and 80's.
cease: oo, the jays are starting to score some runs
Bambi: no worries woof
the_woof: by a lot, i mean
Bambi: if we had thick skin we wouldn't attempt to do this on dialup LOL
the_woof: haha
klokwkdog: yeah, woof. The phone companies promised broadband to every single person in the country by 2000, got regulations removed, then didn't deliver and are laughing at you
llanwydd: I loved the old popeye. It was so surrealist
SirTweenalot, esq: Been watching the DVD version of Meaning Of Life recently, LL. Some great outtakes & deleted scenes included.
Bunnyboy: Of course, that would include the excreble POPEYE AND SON series, I presume.
cease: sounds like a firesign joke, klok
Bambi: releasing them to the public domain bunny?
klokwkdog: I've seen them all, Bunny...
the_woof: i have broadband. it's nice. :)
Bunnyboy: Look for loads of Popeye in 2007.
SirTweenalot, esq: It's incredible that it works as well as it does, Bambi. You and JL are to be very much commended.
klokwkdog: Bambi -- no, they're getting out early, time off their sentence for good behavior
Dexter Fong: P&B; deja vu all over again
Bambi: thanks Tweeny :-)
Bambi: LOL Klok good one
llanwydd: let me scare you with a little story
Bunnyboy: Bambi: Well, the original Fleischer brothers shorts have been in the public domain for years. But we can only hope that the WB folks are doing the requisite polish-up for which they are so widely regarded.
Dexter Fong: llan: Tell a vision
SirTweenalot, esq: I think if the cable companies can run a line to your house, they should be made to provide broadband as well.
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood intones: "9:45 PM and late as usual, it's cHeStEr_cAdAvEr, just back from Ohio."
Boney: I'll be working on some Art of the Insane tonight. We'll see if I can multitask.
Dexter Fong: there it goes again
cHeStEr_cAdAvEr: ...zoinks
SirTweenalot, esq: Chester!
the_woof: 'allo

SirTweenalot, esq: The night of the living Chester!
klokwkdog: The $200 Billion Broadband Scandal - http://www.newnetworks.com/BroadbandScandalIntro.htm
cHeStEr_cAdAvEr: bbl
Dexter Fong is not going to mimic chester's capitalization scheme
the_woof: is that where you get your material? :)
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in and intones "Presenting 'doctec', just granted probation at 9:46 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
Bambi: hi Chester
llanwydd: not familiar with tex avery but I've heard the name
Dexter Fong: Hi Doc
klokwkdog: hey, DT
cease: hey doc
SirTweenalot, esq: Back from the road trip, Doc?
Bambi: wb doc

klokwkdog: CNI is cutting in/out like a crazy monkey...
the_woof: yeah
Bunnyboy: i.e. Gould.
doctec: back from the super market (frankly, 'super' is an exaggeration)
Bunnyboy: hiya doc!
doctec: tex avery: one of a number of warner bros. cartoonmeisters of the 30s, 40s and 50s
klokwkdog: stop and shop has gone downhill since they were bought by that bunch of Royal Aholds...
Bambi: yes, I hear ya on the 'super' market thing lol
llanwydd: hey doc!
Bunnyboy: llan: Every see Droopy? That's one of Tex Avery's characters.
cease: i went to whole foods today

Bunnyboy: And A WILD HARE (1940) is the prototypical Bugs and Elmer cartoon, also directed by Tex.
Dexter Fong: My whole foods store wah having a half-price sale, I bought a quarter pound of butter
SirTweenalot, esq: Been reading Cat's suggestion "...Economic Hitman". Pirates, Klok... just a bu - "The Crimson Permament Assurance"nch of freakin' pirates. I love the opening segment of Meaning of Life
doctec: marvellously surreal
cease: not as impressive as the place outside of nyc that elayne took me to last year
llanwydd: I saw that cat. It was amazing how much peanut butter they had
SirTweenalot, esq: Boy, did that last post get messed up. And in Firefox...
Merlyn: I like "SLICK HARE", where the neon-like lettering makes it look like "SUCK HARE"
cease: yes ive never seen a larger collection of "salads"
cease: i ended up buying 6 and then coming home to finding 3 too hot
Bunnyboy: cease: West Seattle is getting a Whole Foods, in the foreseeable future. Probably by 2007. Yeah, that 60 Minutes spot was purty keen.
doctec: cat: that was "stew leonard's" right?
SirTweenalot, esq: Anyhow, it'll be years before we find out all the damage that's been done since '96.
cease: one, the crab in portabello, below par, and the meat loaf wating for later
cease: he cauliflowre was much hotter than at the indian place you took us to last may, dex
klokwkdog: Tween -- our smart young (AEI) men helping the lesser people of impoverished nations...cough up the rest of their money

cease: and if i'm visitng my parents anyway, why not?
Dexter Fong: Cat: YOu like it really spicy eh?
SirTweenalot, esq: If, I'm not mistaken, that's and Austin outfit, Bun.
cease: ok, wel, the taste for one
doctec: good for you lland
SirTweenalot, esq: It's depressing, Klok.

cease: at your own organ again, llan?
klokwkdog: cat's keyboard has gone into e.e. cummings mode
cease: no i loathe heat

the_woof: my keyboard is always in e. e. cummings mode
llanwydd: let's see I've got lettuce, cabbage, corn, peppers, radishes and a ton of tomato plants
doctec: is there a way to tell itunes to get earlier segments?
klokwkdog: Tween -- you want depressing? I dare you to make it through A Problem From Hell
SirTweenalot, esq: You'd hate Austin summers, Cat. 100 degress + for days on end. The winters make up for it...
Bunnyboy: cease: How 'bout some CLAM chili?
cease: im not sure if i hate hot weather more than hot food, but its a good race
the_woof: what a good song...
SirTweenalot, esq: Just took a screen shot. Will look for it, Klok.
doctec: how cold does it get, tween?
cease: it can get really warm here, but rarely hot.
cease: johnny carson comes back from the dead to answer
llanwydd: that's where you and I differ, cat. I'm a curry fanatic
cease: it's so cold that......
SirTweenalot, esq: Rarely freezes. 60's in January.
Bambi: back again
doctec: hey, he wasn't kidding - he really did come RIGHT BACK
cease: is that better than Left Behind?
doctec: much better, cat!
cease: i thought al lthe behinds were right
Bunnyboy: The recently released SNL: BEST OF COMMERCIAL PARODIES has a funny recent spot about over-the-top fast-food marketing: Taco Town.
cease: thats where all the shit comes from, these days
Bambi: I think so Cat ;-)
SirTweenalot, esq: If I ever get to Van, Cat, I'm going to look you up just for the restaurant experience.

SirTweenalot, esq: Do the managers cringe when you enter their establishments? LOL
cease: i seek subtlety
llanwydd: LOL klok!
Bambi: is the stream behaving better now?
doctec: nah, he's a good tipper
cease: if you crave hot food, fumiyo owuld be able to help you.
SirTweenalot, esq: Seems pretty stable, Bambi...
Dexter Fong: Bambi: YOu bet,,,and you can pee rght in it
cease: she loves hot food. its just that she basically hates food
llanwydd: I can't get enough curry
klokwkdog: sounds like some of that "not for chicks" man food, Bunny
Dexter Fong: Man cannot live by I.V. alone
SirTweenalot, esq: I'll take some good Kung Pao chicken any day
Bambi: LOL
llanwydd: usually chicken tikka masala
cease: halliday pitching surprisingly poorly tonight, but still ahead
Merlyn: I didn't see that coming
Dexter Fong: Spoke too soon Bambi
Bunnyboy: Subtlety is just outside where you find it.
the_woof: i was just thinking that
klokwkdog: the stream is still cutting in and out, but not so badly as it were awhile agos
SirTweenalot, esq: I'm going to have to pick up a copy of "This Country". Pretty good stuff...
Bambi: I like things like *HOT* Manchurian Beef with green onions ...
cease: i never thought proctor and bergman were that good, at least compared ot ossman and austin solo works
llanwydd: This Country is the live album isn't it?
klokwkdog has visions of halliday trying to sell aluminum bats...
the_woof: i got the fst cd "give me immortality or give me death" last week at tower records
Bambi: drat
klokwkdog begins many meals by weaponizing cayenne pepper...
llanwydd: haven't tried manchurian beef yet
Dexter Fong: llan: JUdging by the audience reaction, yes =))
SirTweenalot, esq: You have to be able to light a cigarette, Bambi. The Cajuns have some seafood dishes that'll do the job.
the_woof: i listened to it; it was ok, but i think i missed a lot of the jokes
cease: had you heard it before, woof?
Bambi: very good
llanwydd: thought so dex
the_woof: cease: no, i hadn't
Bunnyboy: TV OR NOT TV is visionary. And GIVE ME A BREAK has some lovely spots, no pun intended.
SirTweenalot, esq: But, they couldn't find any cayenne in Iraq...
Bunnyboy: "DOOOOOOGIES!"
Dexter Fong: woof: Like nearly all FST, repeated listenings are recommended
llanwydd: the only part I've heard is the excerpt on "Shoes For Industry"
Bunnyboy: "If CUTE can KILL...THEY WILL!"
llanwydd: rated O for Overrated
cease: ok bun, tv does have its visionary identiy, but i never thought it compared to the ossman and austin works of the same era
||||||||| It's 10:00 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| cHeStEr_cAdAvEr - dead from the common cold
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
the_woof: dex: i do know that. i've listened to "temporarily humbolt county" about 10 times, and it gets funnier each time
klokwkdog: "cajuns" are defined by the westernmost point where Moon Pies are still used as throws by Carnival Krewes
cease: they were firing on all cylindars in those days, or some kinda mechanical metaphor
klokwkdog: bambi - feed cutting in/out
Dexter Fong: afk for refill
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
doctec: as much as i enjoyed tv or not tv when it came out, i have to agree with cat here - there's more substance to the ossman/austin stuff - not just jokes
SirTweenalot, esq: The Ms. Information show is a great bit on TV...
SirTweenalot, esq: LOL Klok!!
klokwkdog used to have a mechanical metaphor, but traded it for an AMC Matador
Bambi: I really dislike the oriental restaurants that don't have real green tea steeped and use many american vegies instead of the traditional 'chinese' vegies
doctec: ole!
the_woof: muy caliente
Bunnyboy: But the whole Pay Cable thing, just a year after HBO started. ..Wow!
SirTweenalot, esq: Yea, Bambi. Nothing like a good Asian meal. Guess they've been at it for a while ;)
klokwkdog: Tweeny -- it's in Wikipedia under Moon Pie
Bunnyboy: brb. Bunnette's arrived.
doctec: yeah, bb, they definitely had a bead on the future there
llanwydd: a lot of "chinese" food is really from san francisco anyway
llanwydd: the chinese don't eat much beside rice
the_woof: are there any good movies with particularly fst-like humor?
llanwydd: and noodles
SirTweenalot, esq: East TX is alot like Louisiana. Haven't been down there in decades, though...
doctec: and the production on tv or not tv was excellent - steve gillmor has a lot to do with that imho
SirTweenalot, esq: Waiting for hurricane season to see how FEMA can royally screw things up again.
cease: gillmor was always good with the ft
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and announces "Presenting 'principalpoop', just granted probation at 10:03 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
principalpoop: howdy
the_woof: avast
SirTweenalot, esq: TV was good work, Doc, no doubt. Really like Roller Maidens as well. Can't believe PA did all those voices.
Bambi: not sure if it's here or up north that's having the problem ...
llanwydd: why have I never heard of gillmore?
SirTweenalot, esq: The class will come to order...
klokwkdog: Tweeny -- for fun, look up Philly cheesesteak and read the ordering instructions for Pat's and Gino's
principalpoop: clear the poop deck
doctec: lland: look at the production credits on the back of the 'not insane' and 'tv or not tv' albums
SirTweenalot, esq: Yet another screen shot, Klok :)
llanwydd: msntv2 is really giving me hell tonight
doctec: gillmor also directed the 'martian space party' movie, from which the 'not insane' album gets some of its material
cease: yes its unproductive to say album x is better than album y with the ft
klokwkdog: hey, poop
SirTweenalot, esq: I still find it amazing that you can do chat w/MSTV, LL.
cease: i stil havent seen that, doc
Dexter Fong: Tween: On Roller Maidens, Austin had a lot of help
cease: i think lodestones sells it, right
principalpoop: have I gone deaf? or deafer?
cease: my aunt went deef. but then she was from minnesota
SirTweenalot, esq: Yeah, but still Doc...
llanwydd: I'm dying to see that Martian Space Party movie
doctec: as ossman quite rightly puts it in his msp diary: put 'tv or not tv', 'roller maidens' and 'how time flys' together and you have the 'lost' firesign album
principalpoop: I am deef too, on a good day, not from minnesota though
llanwydd: I've only seen one FST film "Case of the Missing Yolk" and it didn t have Ossman
SirTweenalot, esq: Wish they'd do something again like How Time Flys - bring in a bunch of outside comedians.
cease: good point, doc
Dexter Fong: llan: Have you ever seen J-Men Forever?
SirTweenalot, esq: I've been really impressed with Carole Cleveland's contribution to Monty Python.
doctec: the group split up over 'creative differences' right after 'not insane', and went off to do solo/duo work
Merlyn: Ossman played the missing yolk
klokwkdog: has picture of people lined up to get into Pat's...at 3AM
klokwkdog: If you are planning on getting a cheesesteak from Pat's, then you must know how to order properly. People have been sent to the back of the line for ordering incorrectly, which goes right in line with the South Philly "tough guy" reputation. First, specify if you want your steak with (wit) or without (wit-out) onions. Second, specify the cheese you want on your steak: Plain, American, Provolone, Whiz, or Pizza. Finally, have your money ready and do not order fries or a drink at the first window (order sides and drinks at the second window).
cease: like the asteriod belt of the firesign solar system
llanwydd: I saw part of that one dex
llanwydd: on some cable tv station long ago
SirTweenalot, esq: Sounds like the Soup Nazi skit on Seinfeld, Klok...
SirTweenalot, esq: I'm connected to CNI, but dead air.
doctec: while 'tv or not tv' was all proctor/bergman, in 'how time flys' you will hear proctor and bergman lend their voices, and in 'roller maidens' you hear (i think) all four of them
the_woof: same, tween
principalpoop: whiz? beer on a steak sandwich?
klokwkdog: Soup Nazi used to run a cheesteak shop in S. Philly, but had to leave because he wasn't tough enough
llanwydd: plain cheese, klok? never heard of it
Dexter Fong: Correct Doc, plus others
SirTweenalot, esq: Could be, Doc. I'll have to check the liner notes...
doctec: of all the solo albums, 'roller maidens' comes closest to being an actual firesign album imho
Merlyn: I turned up the volume on the dead air
principalpoop: good, that is why I asked about being deefed
llanwydd: best deli in philadelphia is koch's
llanwydd: possibly the best deli anywhere
principalpoop: I already have the volume on full all the time lol
SirTweenalot, esq: Red Green and the Blue Boys...
Bambi: please stand by
cease: a much mores successful musicla than fighting clowns
klokwkdog: llan -- it's made in Lancaster PA by a few Amish farms; it's like Amoroso sub bread: hard to get outside the area
Dexter Fong: I agree Doc, had the typical TV channels etc, plus an overarching plot
principalpoop: can I sit? it has been a long day...
principalpoop: hi bambi :D
doctec: cat: yeah, the music on 'roller maidens' really rocks
cease: comeon jesus, show yourself
llanwydd: aha! cheese from the plains. didn t get it
SirTweenalot, esq: We will be returning shortly to our 1954 classic, Amazon Women On The Moon... (you'll love it Bambi)
Merlyn: turning up the volume on dead air makes it quieter
doctec: how can you not like a tune with a line like 'switchblade pitchforks' in it?
cease: but austrin is the one who thinks of himself as a musician, not a Singer
klokwkdog: plain cheese is the only kind of cheese amish adults are allowed to eat
Bambi: hey princep :-)
Merlyn: a sewing machine?
llanwydd: minors can't eat cheese in lancaster?
Bambi: I bet Tweeny :-) love those old movies
cease: ah sew
Bambi: is that the one with Ava Gardner?
principalpoop: miners llan, they get coal on the nice floor in the store
klokwkdog: asia minors can't -- it causes gas that can lead to explosions like those in W. Va recently
cease: id rather be old and sitll move than be in an old movie
llanwydd: I come from pennsylavnia miners myself. they came from welsh miners
principalpoop: ahhh sound again
llanwydd: on my father's side
Bambi: lol Cat
the_woof: well, i'm going to go now
llanwydd: LOL klok
the_woof: i'll be back for the tech show
Dexter Fong: woah! what a transition on CNI
cease: this reminds me of the uber buddy hackett joke
the_woof: on the irc
SirTweenalot, esq: LOL Bambi. It ain't an old movie. A 1983 parody with a bunch of different skits.
principalpoop: I looked kinda grainy rather than sharp
doctec: ah, we're now into 'bride of firesign'
llanwydd: nite woof!
the_woof: g'night all
Dexter Fong: Night woof
||||||||| At 10:13 PM, the_woof dashes out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
principalpoop: woof the woof
klokwkdog: nite woof!
cease: thas more than the groom of firesign will ever do
llanwydd: msntv2 is really getting on my case!
klokwkdog: more sequels
llanwydd: I'm upset, set up and set upon.
SirTweenalot, esq: Catherwood, please pour me a grain alcohol and rainwater. You know, the Ripper Special.
||||||||| Catherwood hands SirTweenalot, esq a grain alcohol and rainwater you know the ripper special.
doctec: without consulting IMDB, am i correct in saying that 'amazon women on the moon' is something like 'groove tube' or 'tunnel vision' but with better production values:?
Bambi: I think the net is under attack tonight lol
principalpoop: not me, promise bambi
SirTweenalot, esq: The fish are trying to escape?
klokwkdog: I'd like to see the Net traffic graph for 2 June 2006...
llanwydd: the fish have become obnoxious
Bambi: lol princep
Dexter Fong: Animals without backbones are fallin g down
klokwkdog: shades of the late devouring period
principalpoop: charlie the tuna is leading a revolt?
Dexter Fong: He;s scaling the wall
klokwkdog: he's a revolting leader
SirTweenalot, esq: Sorry, Charlie...
klokwkdog: probably being subsidized by the CIA
cease: this is as noisy as not insane
Merlyn: humanize?
doctec: what a finesse
Bambi: and there's hamburger all over the highway in Mystic, CT
SirTweenalot, esq: Probably working for scale...
principalpoop: I thought that was london's bridge, the one in arizona...
klokwkdog: Merlyn -- the touchy-feely re-spin of Martinizing
llanwydd: I wonder how the people in mystic feel about that line
principalpoop: the all weather cereal
SirTweenalot, esq: I knew one of the sons of the guy who did that, P...
Merlyn: My Favorite Martinizing
Bambi: keyword: blind news boy? LOL
SirTweenalot, esq: Met him...
klokwkdog: and where in the heck is that English girl who said she would meet me on the 3rd floor?
doctec: 'bride of firesign' does have some fairly intense production work in it
cease: didnt ausitn say it was overproducded, when he was ehre?
klokwkdog: he thought he was buying Tower Bridge...
llanwydd: I was in a pizzeria today and saw the weirdest thing. bacon and potato pizza! eccchhh
principalpoop: serious jigsaw fetish
SirTweenalot, esq: Absolutely, Doc. Fine production indeed. Another one you'll be hearing new thing on in 20 years.
doctec: that, and all the refs to past firesign albums, is what drives 'brides'
cease: i think there is agreaster expectatin of overdone producotn now than in the early days of their work
klokwkdog: they got Phil Spector to work on it?
llanwydd: phil spector is not around these days I don't think
klokwkdog: it's the ones with little ears of corn that really get to you, llan
doctec: there's a simple test you can conduct to determine if something is overpeoduced: turn the volume way down and listen - if the sound effects overwhelm the dialog, it's overproduced
principalpoop: I thought he was a senator
SirTweenalot, esq: Exactly, Klok - not the right bridge. Still amazing to do that in the middle of the stinkin' desert. What a waste of water...
cease: you needed phil specotr or georgbe martin to do it then
cease: ow anyhone can do it
llanwydd: corn doesn't belong on pizza, much less potatoes
cease: is that what austin meant, doc?
SirTweenalot, esq: Good idea, Doc. I'll have to remember that one.
Dexter Fong: Cat: Anyone can *do* it, but only a few can *do* it well
cease: i thought he was the most interested in burying nuggets deeply into the audio
Bunnyboy: Back in Black
SirTweenalot, esq: It's been martinized?
cease: i trtied to Do It in radio stations in the 60s and ealry 70s.
principalpoop: BnB oki
Bunnyboy: Right next to Bambi. Hel-LO!
cease: but that was a generation after the golden age
SirTweenalot, esq: When were you in Japan, Cat? Mid-70's?
doctec: sirtween: the other test is the 'car test' - do up a cd mix, get in your car, hit the highway and play the cd - if you can't hear all the relevant elements of a mix in the proper balance when playing the cd at moderate volume while driving at 60mph, the mix needs tweaking
Bunnyboy: Oh, hi cease. Sorry to cut in.
Dexter Fong: FST when listened to on a high resolution stereo system (sorry Klok) is really amazing..there's stuff there that almost disappears into the noise floor
llanwydd: I was a DJ in the early 90s
klokwkdog: Wikipedia: japanese pizza may have toppings such as sliced boiled eggs, sweetcorn, shrimps, nori, and mayonnaise instead of tomato sauce
llanwydd: just classic moldy oldies
cease: exactly dex
cease: that was intended
cease: the beatles of comedy
SirTweenalot, esq: Doc: I heard the Floyd set up a short range radio transmitter to do the thing with the car.
principalpoop: no, that must no be allowed, we must invade japan and put a stop to that blasphemy
doctec: sirtween: a great idea, simulate fm reception - you can do that now with just an ipod and an itrip transmitter
klokwkdog: in what brand/model of car, DT? Ken might have trouble...
principalpoop: get the italians to help us, they can bring the sauce
llanwydd: mayonnaise on pizza? that's criminal
SirTweenalot, esq: Haven't heard of itrip.
SirTweenalot, esq: If it plays well in a Peterbilt...
Dexter Fong: Klok: A Peterbilt or Jimmy Mac is good
cease: virtual non union
principalpoop: you can dip pizza in ranch dressing, but not made with it
Bunnyboy: itrip, therefore I do.
cease: that can be heard in more than one way
doctec: klok: doesn't really matter, though if you can do the listening test in more than one car then so much the better - but if you only have one car, and you already know how your favorite cds sound in that car, then doing the test in that same car will reveal a lot
llanwydd: I always dip the crusts in pepsi
cease: i had a revelation about the last line of bozos this week
cease: I see you are a sailor
principalpoop: is Itrip like mister natural or purple microdot or orange sunshine?
Dexter Fong: Hi Clem
doctec: 'i see you are a sailor...'
llanwydd: an epiphany, cat?
cease: when it showed up in some sort of puzzle on googlle or wharefer groups alt.firesign
klokwkdog: I have chopsticks with the chain so they won't fall thru the noise floor. But it isn't noisy at the moment as I sprayed under the slats and killed most of the insects down there. They feed on the crumbs that fall thru when I sweep
principalpoop: that sounds good llan, I may try that
Bambi: love bread sticks with garlic butter and dipped in cheese sauce
Bunnyboy: ICUR a dog...
SirTweenalot, esq: LOL P. Wavy Gravy's audio test.
Bambi waves to Clem
cease: my revelation was: I, sea. You are a sailor
llanwydd: I was the one who posted that trivia quiz, cat
Bunnyboy: from Apple! Or one of their tech partners.
cease: oh thanks then llan
principalpoop: yum bambi
klokwkdog: DT -- the problem with that is that you end up deliberately making compressed audio; you lose all the dynamic rage
SirTweenalot, esq: Ah, Lady With A Fan. What a great tune...
cease: i watched that parots of telegraph hill flick and that may have caused that epiphany
doctec: http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/itripdock/
principalpoop: the voice of ahhh, clem
SirTweenalot, esq: Don't know from iPod. Still have a cassette Walkman.
Bunnyboy: Finally saw MRS HENDERSON PRESENTS last weekend. Fun film.
cease: yu see the parrots flick, bun?
llanwydd: ever have early morning epiphanies that wake you up? or am I the only one
SirTweenalot, esq: iTrip, what a cool idea...
Dexter Fong: Parrot Flick, the one with Jimmy Buffet?
llanwydd: it seems silly but it happens
cease: The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill
Bunnyboy: cease: Ain't seen it yet. I have heard of it, though, and intend to get to it sometime.
doctec: klok: that assumes you want to make your mix sound like it's being played on an fm radio - best thing is to select as your baseline some reference cds that are not overproduced and overcompressed to begin with
klokwkdog: Wal-Mart & others sell a cigarette lighter plug containing an FM transmitter which accepts a flash stick full of MP3s. You can use it to play them, has nav. buttons, etc. Much cheepr than iPod
cease: the parrot dude talks about zen ambassador suzuki going to yosemite
Dexter Fong: Poor B&J, things are not going well tonight
cease: jhis coomnent on the falls, was that it's a river which stops being a river and breaks into individiaul drops, and then goes back into being a river
doctec: and it smokes your cigarrettes for you!
klokwkdog: Dex -- it's amazing that the setup works atoll
Bambi: that dastardly Rocky Rococco again! ;-)
llanwydd: I got transferred to a page that said "Amrad is not sure I understand you fully". I'm really getting annoyedc
klokwkdog: DT -- no, that model costs extra; fogs the car with pre-smoked cigarette smoke
Dexter Fong: KLok: Indeed, and it usually works so well too
cease: the guy's relationships with the parots are a interesting illustration of that point
Bambi: did it drop again Dex?
Bunnyboy: llan: Try some Confidence in the System - tm.
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Hemlock Stones in through the front door at 10:29 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
klokwkdog: llan -- I got Griffin Technology showing an FM transmitter plug-on to iPod
doctec: lland: what url are you going to that is giving you the firesign 'page not found' page?
cease: anyone who identifies withother species probably knows that. that's why i asked bunny if he'd seen it
Dexter Fong: Yes, Bambi and came back and dropped agin but it's back now =)))
SirTweenalot, esq: The Rococco/Bradshaw for mayor video bits are great.
klokwkdog: cat - his parrots raised him poorly?
Bunnyboy: Keeps them in power longer, longer longer.
cease: isnt that hem unlocked yet, stones?
Dexter Fong: Hey Hemlock
llanwydd: this too shall pass
SirTweenalot, esq: Hail and well met, Stones...
Bunnyboy: hiya Hemmie.
Hemlock Stones: Greetings to all of you who are here and to all who are not here
principalpoop: cheerio stones
llanwydd: I'm sorry to say, doc, but I don't know what URL I have
cease: hail and rain? no omen for a roman
Bambi: OK LOL ... can't believe it's being such a pain tonight!
klokwkdog: welcome, Stones
SirTweenalot, esq: Pass the Indian, please...
Bambi: hi Stones!
Hemlock Stones: I hope i find everyone in good spirits
cease: this is noisy
llanwydd: this msntv2 is supposedly the "upgrade" from webtv
klokwkdog has limited stock of spirits, but will get more soon
doctec: oh well - sorry lland - the griffin technology link i typed in is supposed to take you to their web site, not a page in the firesign site
Bambi: all except for net connection :-(
SirTweenalot, esq: May your Guiness be cold and frothy as well ;)
Dexter Fong: Pass the Indian on the left....then tail gate the Indian dead ahead
principalpoop: I was I lost again? thanks for finding me stones....
llanwydd: it probably won't happen next week
Hemlock Stones: I am Flushing New York this week Nino tells me and all i did was pull the chain
llanwydd: how did you manage to flush NY?
SirTweenalot, esq: Talking about milking the last bit out of a stream...
doctec: you may have to manually go to the griffintechnology.com site and fish through the 'products' page to find the link to the itrip thingy - it's an ipod add-on, it transmits your ipod output as a low-power fm signal you can listen to on your car radio
klokwkdog: Indian Dead Heads? Is that some kind of required symmetry with the Maharishi thing?
Bambi: LOL Stones!
llanwydd: Ravi Shankar Garcia
principalpoop: I had a straight flush the other day
klokwkdog: Potempkin Village Chicken LOL
SirTweenalot, esq: Talk about naming a town ;)
Dexter Fong: Klok: I've got an Indian Dead Head Penny
Dexter Fong: pp: Did you go all in?
doctec: 'mad about that meat!'
klokwkdog: Dex - is the airplane on the back upside-down? If so, it's worth a lot of money
Hemlock Stones: I was flushed with success but it didnt last long on AOL
principalpoop: show off, throw a towel over it pablo
llanwydd: pass the aoxomoxoa please
Bambi: Indian Dead Head nickels?
SirTweenalot, esq: Like Peter Gabriel sings, "You gotta get in to get out..."
Dexter Fong: Klok: Even better, 1/2 penny Magenta, unperforated
klokwkdog: Bambi -- those were wooden, just about all of them have rotted away
doctec: vs. the mighty purple of owsley high school
principalpoop: wooden you like a wooden nickle nickie?
Bambi: AOHell is ditching the EU apparently
llanwydd: porcelain mannequin with shattered skin...
Bunnyboy: Hands down, THE latter-day FST character is Bebop.
SirTweenalot, esq: Sorry, LL... he had to die...
cease: the upside down plane? i thought that was the sign of the tristero
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 10:35 PM, dragging freditor by one leg and asks "Can anyone vouch for this yahoo?"
doctec: bb: i would agree with you about bebop
Hemlock Stones: tell me more please Bambi
klokwkdog: Dex -- ha'pennies are great for making carollers go away...
Boney: the title of the Art-of-the-Insane I'm working on is "Ben A. Dick." No relation to Phil
cease: i was an owl in my last halloween in yorkton
SirTweenalot, esq: Finally, someone to straighten out this mess...
Bunnyboy: freditor! Hiya!
cease: hey, it's fred
doctec: probably the most identifiable '90s firesign character
Boney: hi fred... brb
principalpoop: hello freditor
Dexter Fong: Bunny: Bebop is a Mormon?
Merlyn: hey fred
Bambi: hi freditor
freditor: woof
SirTweenalot, esq: Which cuts should we use?

Dexter Fong: Hey Fred
klokwkdog: cat -- no, no, no! the tristero is only visible on blue glass bottles of Vat 47 that've lain out in the desert for decades
Hemlock Stones: OK ty Bambi
freditor: back from the dead
Bunnyboy: pleh! pleh!
doctec: what's the early buzz on the book f?

Hemlock Stones: i have been to some of those places Dexter

Bambi: Dr Firesign ... evil genious of Fun Fun Town ;-)
Bunnyboy: doc just added to his NSA and FBI files.
freditor: proctor is the only one to respond
doctec is not sure if fred know doc has been out of work for over a year now
Merlyn: do zombies drive zambonies?

klokwkdog: bambi -- CNI radio cut out again, right after "Bradshaw"

Merlyn: scatter some reagan ashes on the cash, though, doc
freditor: cease: who knows, proc's not a threat

freditor: cease: ossman against out of principle... proc calmed all down I suppose

SirTweenalot, esq: Guess the Tennessee Valley Authority hasn't made it as far as Dendron yet ;)
freditor: thanks about firezine
doctec: oops! i meant http://firezine.net
cease: yes ossman has not been succesfful in marketing his novels. the poems not really mass produced

cease: its worth suporting the effort
freditor: book updated and added to... F Files disc a must for Firesign collectors
SirTweenalot, esq: Are you talking about the book that's avilable at Lodestone? Just saw it today. Was wondering why someone hadn't written a history of FST.
klokwkdog: Dendron VA is in Tidewater coastal plain, Tweeny. TVA has no power over them ;-)
cease: you mean i'm not the Only firesign collector?
Merlyn: by the way, www.talonnews.com now just redirects to an online pharmacy
freditor: yes, buy it from me please

freditor: I mean really?
llanwydd: felony? you've got to be kidding
doctec: i don't think they are ever really gonna separate at this point - but as far as anything new from them, things are all quiet on the western front
Hemlock Stones: sorry, needed to reboot
SirTweenalot, esq: I don't know that I'd trust online gambling, Bun.

llanwydd: it is the western front isn't it?
doctec: did you hear about the library of congress induction fred?
doctec: http://www.firesigntheatre.com/updates/00225.html
SirTweenalot, esq: All quite here, LL...
freditor: LOC- yes but I was put off, nicely ...
llanwydd: I've never done any online gambling anyway unless you count ebay
doctec: also, one of the 'fools in space' xm radio segments made it onto the 'enron: the smartest guys in the room' dvd
principalpoop: they never come up in the mountains
Bambi: that total access crapola from Earthlink also crashes the browser alot and slows computer ... it's crapware
SirTweenalot, esq: all quite on the western front
SirTweenalot, esq: oh well...
Dexter Fong: Tween: Quite quiet

doctec: it could very well be a shout factory thing, but i think weber is helping out with the production nonetheless
SirTweenalot, esq: Hey Bambi, 99.9% success rate isn't anything to sneeze at ;) Don't sweat it :)

freditor: how about potato heaters?
principalpoop: give him advice bambi, I have none
Bambi: the gatekeeper will truly be in effect then ...
Hemlock Stones: only Lotus eaters Fred
klokwkdog: potato heaters specialty item that's NOT clogging the net

SirTweenalot, esq: Medical condition, Cat? Sorry...

Hemlock Stones: but i get to kick stupid politicians so i guess thats a bonus
freditor: doing the groundwork
Bambi: lol
cease: even failures succeed in something
klokwkdog: well, I'm glad to hear you're not working for the polluting charities, like the Battersea Restoration Project, Stones
Hemlock Stones: if at first you dont succeed, suck eggs !
Bambi: even edison was considered to be a failure repeatedly ;-)
SirTweenalot, esq: What? Mr. Blair and Mr. Bush aren't going to solve the world's problems? The devil you say...
klokwkdog: not PC anymore, Stones. Try "suck a carton of Egg Beaters"
principalpoop: if life gives you lemons, find a girl with lots of meringue and make a pie
Bambi: nothing succeeds ultimately like failure
SirTweenalot, esq: LOL P
Hemlock Stones: removing Blair and Bush would be a hugely successful environmental clean up

SirTweenalot, esq: Nice rip of Spinal Tap...
Hemlock Stones: am sure we will find someone to invade PP

klokwkdog: Mr. Bush will not solve the world's problem and Mr. Blair will excitedly agree that, "You're doing a heckuva job, Georgie"
SirTweenalot, esq: You're a trooper, Stones...
klokwkdog: happy dawn chorus, Hemlock
cease: then you should have jumped in when he was here, fred.
Bambi: thanks Clem !!

klokwkdog: as in "...Kate Moss hoovering up lines of coke..."
cease: a talon news especiale
Hemlock Stones: yes we have Hoovers over here Tween but Dyson stole their thunder
principalpoop: you can sit on an ice cream cone and tell what flavor it is tween?
SirTweenalot, esq: Ah, as in, boy, I'd like to hoover?

freditor: tastes like a potato if sat on
principalpoop: I hoovered the pizza again
klokwkdog: yes, Bambi's show is super, and there is an associated chat on IRC which is not 2B missed! See CNI site for de tails
SirTweenalot, esq: Don't sweat it JL. You guys are miracle workers.
Bambi: we had amazing rain earlier ... so JL thinks that maybe our problems may be phone line issues due to the excessive rain
Dexter Fong: Ah, the home fires are still burning
Hemlock Stones: When blair speaks you can hardly see his trousers move !
freditor: hey bambi, would you like me to program a ft rarities show for you, if I haven't already?

Hemlock Stones: yes, many thanks Clem

Dexter Fong: Hey Bambi, listen to Fred

Bambi: that would be great Fred!
Bambi: would have to send it to us via snail mail though ... dialup ;-(
cease: im listening to last night'
SirTweenalot, esq: Check out Amazon Women On The Moon. Proctor has a commercial parody, but a couple of other scenes are straight out of a FST playbook.
cease: maron show right now
cease: a great venue for proc, it should be for al lthe guys
cease: you should go on his show too, fred
freditor: bambi you could e-mail me an address and I'll send you a cd fredwiebel at aol dot com
SirTweenalot, esq: He says they had nothing to do with it, but there's a scene with Carrie Fischer that should be getting FST royalties.

freditor: silly pate'
principalpoop: trix are for kids
Dexter Fong: Cat: BTW, interesting to note that Canada now has it's terrorist concerns

freditor: now on DVD
SirTweenalot, esq: A Mountie sting, but still a concern...
cease: masrc maron's air amercia show. great show. i listen daily. proc was on a few weeks ago
klokwkdog: Dex -- interesting to note that Canada didn't have to pass 16,000 obnoxious laws and violate half the ones that are left to catch "terrorists"
klokwkdog: Dex -- also they got the right people, didn't shoot anybody, and didn't screw up all over the place
Dexter Fong: Klok: Weel, as you know, they've always been a little slow up there
cease: yes, osama et all are a polica matter, not a geopoliitcal earthquake
cease: good article about that in today's georgia straight.
Bambi: getting bad enough now I can't even stay connected here in chat! :-(
principalpoop: hold on there fella, you trying to say George and others are taking advantage of this situation?
Bambi: keeps timing out
klokwkdog: OTOH, the existing laws in Canada are pretty broad once a judge signs off on something
cease: ecellent column by gwynn dyer, london based war correstpndnt
cease: best pundidt i know
Hemlock Stones: Klok, over here it takes over 250 armed police officers to shoot a guy and bully the neigbours to not catch terrorists
Dexter Fong: Bambi: I think JL is prolly right about all the rain screweing up land lines
Boney: today's 100% digital Art of the Insane (no relation to Phil) is almost ready
principalpoop: I did not disconnect, but yes it stalls sometimes

Hemlock Stones: not catching terrorists is a very expensive business
Bambi: yeah Dex .. think you both are right
klokwkdog: a London-based war correspondent? Hemlock, is it worse over there than we've been told?
klokwkdog: I thought the Labour Party was more or less holding together ;-)
Hemlock Stones: yes i think it is Klok

Hemlock Stones: they are asking for extending time to question these two asians now

Hemlock Stones: Labour party is History over here now, New Labour is just another name for Neo Cons
SirTweenalot, esq: Didn't know you thought that about your daughter's death, Cat. Really sad.
cease: they may be here now, fred
principalpoop: one is mailman, watch out for them stones
Dexter Fong: Stones: That's because the asians only know how to respond to numbers i.e., I'll have the Number 3 with EXTRA Sprouts
principalpoop: an islamic mailman, no wonder they picked him up
cease: im wondering how you plan to market the book fred
Hemlock Stones: coming right up Dexter
cease: if it took me this long, imagine how lnog other buyers will have
klokwkdog: Hemlock -- that's out of the new US Army Field Manual. If you imprison people long enough and torture them, they will admit to what you thought they did. Or else die, in which case you are allowed to exonerate everyone concerned who's still alive
Hemlock Stones: its like the Witch trials, if you drown you are innocent if you dont you burn
freditor: it's onbly been a month cease
klokwkdog: I notice that the US has airlifted a unit of WMD inspectors to Britain to help find those chemicals
SirTweenalot, esq: C'mon now, Klok. Christian Crusaders don't torture people.
Dexter Fong: Cheney turned me into a newt
principalpoop: 14 european nations looked the other way about the secret cia flights, you need to help us stones
SirTweenalot, esq: He got better...
Hemlock Stones: i know where all the chemicals and other WMDs are Klok but they never asked me
freditor: you got better?
Dexter Fong: Twen: YOu mean he's now a salamander, 1st Class?
freditor: yeah, me too
SirTweenalot, esq: Dex, that's a bit of logic that will live in infamy like who's on 1st...
principalpoop: you became a gingrich? ewwwww
klokwkdog: well, duh, Hemlock. Everyone knows they're in Syria
freditor: WMD means Western Maryland to me
Dexter Fong: Tween: I was in the Infamy when I was drafted
SirTweenalot, esq: The 3rd Infamy?
Dexter Fong: Right! THe big red 666
klokwkdog: exactly, freditor
freditor: we just had our weapons of mass destruction blues fest

Hemlock Stones: the incinerate the dangerous ones in Clitheroe Lancashire at the Castle Cement works, evne those that the EPA wont allow to be burned in the USA
SirTweenalot, esq: 2nd Derision?
cease: did that mean no blues showed up, fred?

Dexter Fong: Tween: LOL
Hemlock Stones: the rest are still hidden in New Mexico, if Honey was here she would concur
freditor: some did but mostly jazzy
Dexter Fong: Honey is a concurbine?
||||||||| 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..
Dexter Fong: Screw off Catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood answers "Screw you!"
Hemlock Stones: she is probably at the CSNY gig in Colorado
SirTweenalot, esq: Sod off, mate...
klokwkdog: Hemlock -- actually, those are barrels of old newspaper. To avoid problems along the way, they really pour that stuff in the rivers right here and pretend it's being sent to the UK. Paper is lighter than liquid, too
Dexter Fong: Tween: YOu some kinda landscaper?
Hemlock Stones: my servants are in those barrels Klok
Dexter Fong: Klok: How about Liquid Paper TM
SirTweenalot, esq: Man, I wish I could do the Red Rocks concert. CSN played at a rellay nice 1500 seat outdoor venue here back in the late 90's. What a great show. Joe Vitale of the Walsh band on drums.

klokwkdog: Dex - something to do with monkeys?
principalpoop: sod on, sod off, like the karate kid

cease: hemlock, did the firesign show on bbc increase their proflle in the uk, or is that impossible to do?
SirTweenalot, esq: Good question Dex. I'm thinking of Dallas Taylor from Manassas maybe? Only time I've seen CSN live.
klokwkdog: not to mention the LA County prohibition on master-slave protocols. This has caused lots of problems for people with more than one disk drive...
Dexter Fong: Tween: My bad, brain cross faded on the Eagles..you're mention of Joe Walsh (My Hero) derailed me
Hemlock Stones: periodically you have to round them up for defragging too Klok
Dexter Fong: Stones: Before you defrag them, some one's gotta frag them
SirTweenalot, esq: Saw Stills' Manassas twice in the early 70's. One of my all-time favorites.
Dexter Fong: Tween: A big James GANG fan
klokwkdog: not allowed, Hemlock. Plus, they have to have green cards and be paid Social Security and have taxes witheld. This is a prime mover behind the rapid increase in hard drive size
cease: yah you sent me that, tween. cant say i enjoyed it
SirTweenalot, esq: Have you been fragged? Come on down to Ralph Spolisport's defragging parlor...
Hemlock Stones: Tween, last week on our TV Ian Gilmore and Pink Floyd friend played live with Crosby and Nash on Vocals
Dexter Fong: Klok: YOu gotta frive those mexicans hard otherwise they lazy
freditor: anyone hear the entire unedited bbc performance?
cease: but then i havent heard any music i've enjoyed in a very long time
klokwkdog: heard the version at Radio 4 only
SirTweenalot, esq: Yea, James Gang. Big fan of Walsh before he joined the Eagles as well. Barnstorm...
cease: i loved csn, csny, and their permutattions in that era

cease: t thought it was the entheogens i was on, but freinds with me told me it really happened

klokwkdog: ah, yes, the witching hour is truly here; I should bug out, too
cease: when i left the theatre, i have never been more inspired
freditor: keep the flags burning
cease: and that was as much neal's tune as moore's flick
SirTweenalot, esq: Be careful what you say, Klok ;)
cease: so the marriage of tunage and flickage at its best is the way to go
freditor: thanks friends, buy my book, please
Dexter Fong: Klok: Thought you got rid of the bugs that fell through the ccracks

llanwydd: I used to have one of those white noise machines. I ought to get one again
SirTweenalot, esq: Speaking of, they've raised the spped limit on certain roads in TX to 80 mph. Kinda makes sense if you've ever driven in West TX.
Dexter Fong: llan: They come in all races now
SirTweenalot, esq: the speed limit as well...
llanwydd: 80 sounds incredible
llanwydd: LOL dex
SirTweenalot, esq: It's the race around America!
Dexter Fong: whoooo, that's faster than anyone's ever been before
SirTweenalot, esq: Not at all. That's what people were doing, and they just caught up with the traffic, that's all.
llanwydd: I hear they average 80 on the Autobahn
Dexter Fong: Javol
SirTweenalot, esq: The Autobahn doesn't have a speed limit, does it?
cease: isnt that a detergetn?
Dexter Fong: Der Schpeed Limit ist uber alles
SirTweenalot, esq: They tried that in Montana, as I recall. American cars aren't up to it.

SirTweenalot, esq: Ya wanna bet, LL?
SirTweenalot, esq: If only 'twere so...
llanwydd: what i mean is that we have more of a balance of power in the world now than before. can you deny that?
Dexter Fong: Lemme see,,,,Chechnya, Somalia, Nigeria, Ruanda, Nigeria again
llanwydd: I know, but the whole world is watching. that makes a difference
SirTweenalot, esq: Read "They Thought They Were Free" by Milton Mayer. Interviews with 10 Germans who got caught up in the Nazi frenzy. It's all too easy.
SirTweenalot, esq: Somalia like a new Afghanistan? Yikes.
Dexter Fong: LLAN: If you are talking about scale..well, it helps to be off somewhere in Africa, or malaysia

llanwydd: that's what I meant, dex. not on the same scale
SirTweenalot, esq: Hey, screw the Africans. We just need their resources ;) Not funny...
Dexter Fong: llan: NOT annoyed...just trying to give you another viewpoint
SirTweenalot, esq: Lots of bloody hands to go around, Cat. No doubt.
