GlobalTweening: He's very quiet, Dex...
doctec: actually, i've been glued to my pc all day and much of the week - as mentioned previously, my domain host is having me move a bunch of the sites i manage from their old domain server to a newer one - better configuration, more disk space, and there's a control panel app for managing the accts
TOR Hershman: Don't Step In Me - Paul's tribute to Heather.

bandwyddth: didn't get the worst of the recent flooding in ticonderoga. but my strawberries are under water
principalpoop: be have
Dexter Fong: bee ave
Bambi: speaking of dampening ... need something to drink ... for some reason that toasted almond didn't do much ;-)
principalpoop: ouch bandy

Dexter Fong: ave bee, still can't fly
principalpoop: little lambs eat ivy
TOR Hershman: I just got a flourescent jockstrap, it’s my Glow Ball Positioning System.

TOR Hershman: bad TOR
Dexter Fong: afk for moistening
cease: sony hdr-hc3
cease: its the little one. sony only makes 2 for now, and the other is big
principalpoop: away freshening i kitchen
cease: despite its size, its real hd
GlobalTweening: Since you're impressed, I'll mention it to him.
cease: i bought it on monday
cease: onlyu shot about 30 minutes so far but very imnpressed
doctec: cat: you must be in digital video heaven
GlobalTweening: And it still works?
cease: i was an event on tuesday (see blog) that was being filmed by the big version of this cam
bandwyddth: I hear the thunder again. when will it ever stop
principalpoop: have you figured out how to put in the batteries yet?
cease: and i was just as impressed by my footage of the same stuff
cease: only dif was he had a tripod
cease: oly7 problme is i cant make dvds with it yet
GlobalTweening: Somebody's doing unauthorized rain dances in PA.
principalpoop: any neighbors named noah bandy? make friends
cease: that technology is still not relaly on the market
cease: yeah doc, 3 hdtvs and now a cam, and all of them plugged in to each other
GlobalTweening: I mixed Moe Bandy, does that count?
doctec: but you can at least make standard dvds from the hd footage - it won't be hd but i bet it'll look damn good since the source material is so hi res
GlobalTweening: Sounds like quite a rig there, Cat.
bandwyddth: bandy is dandy but...
cease: yes thats true, doc
doctec: i presume you can transfer the hd tapes into your mac via a digital connection, no?
cease: i'm gonna get the final cut hd version when i get back. going out ot ftown tomorrow
principalpoop: wyddth is quicker
cease: theoreticlaly, doc.
cease: usb port
bandwyddth: LOL pp
GlobalTweening: Using OS X Cat? If so be sure to get the new updates. 10.4.7 was just released.
cease: i know hd dvd players are on the way, but that's hardly a market
doctec: hmm, i don't know if the vid-to-usb connection is a pure digital connection - better to go firewire.
doctec: i had to help set up a friend's kid's windows pc so she could transfer her digital camcorder footage into her pc
principalpoop: the usb port perverts meeting is at, oops wrong chat
cease: yes i should get the panther or the tioger or whatever it is
doctec: the camera had usb and firewire outputs
cease: im jsut plugging in the cords that came with the cam, doc
GlobalTweening: 10.4 is Tiger
doctec: but for some reason, output from the usb was somehow converted to analog before or at the point where it entered the pc
cease: ah yes
cease: im still the previous feline
doctec: whereas with firewire, the transfer was pure digital - no analog conversion occurred
GlobalTweening: Jaguar?
cease: yes i have to figure that out, doc
principalpoop: overhead cams are cool, oop wrong chat
doctec: we had to outfit her pc with a firewire port but once we did that, the quality of the video image in the pc was stunning
doctec: when transferred from the camera via firewire
Dexter Fong: Poop: Have you tried the Chapel?
principalpoop: stunned her? oops you used the AC port
cease: my mac is 10.3.9
doctec: cat can hold his camera over his head, right? that would be an overhead cam ... ?
principalpoop: nurse chapel, from startrek? hubba hubba
GlobalTweening: That's Panther. You really want Tiger. You'll see noticable performance improvements.
Dexter Fong: what a tomato!!
principalpoop: that was impossible with the old heavy, bulky cams
cease: im looking forward to see what hd is converted to when its put in the computer
cease: yes i'll get it next week, tween. maybe by next chat
doctec: if your mac has a firewire port and your digital video camera has either a firewire or "ilink" port (ilink is actually firewire, different type of plug tho), then you can probably do pure digital transfers from your video camera into your mac
cease: but i',m out of town til tuesday
Dexter Fong: Cat: Where you going?
cease: yes it has ilink
principalpoop: I'd like to puree her sauce
doctec: "...and stay away from Three Toed Sloth"
cease: a town up north called Terrace
doctec: 10.-5.-47
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and snorts derisively "Announcing 'klokwkdog', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:49 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the sitting room...
Dexter Fong: I've seen The View from the Terrace
principalpoop: going out on the terrace? must be nice to have one of those, I use to have a balcony

GlobalTweening: You mean you don't have to hunt them Klok? You just reach outside the window and grab one?
klokwkdog: they grow vines in duck horns?
Dexter Fong: I did not know ducks had horns
cease: we had to pick rubber ducks out of a pool, and i was one of the few who won a prize. a shirt advertisiing the company
doctec: duckhorn? impressive!
cease: anyway, i kept flashing on the duck who came down with the word and we ate him, groucho/firesign
principalpoop: good evening ahhhh, clem
Dexter Fong: Cat: YOu are one smooth duck plucker
cease: the duck tasted like beef. nor really something you want a duck to do
klokwkdog: tweeny -- no, they are storming the house with all this water around
klokwkdog: poop -- struggling?
Dexter Fong: Hi Clem, Bambi is fading
cease: on the duck's underside, it says "dress shirt" i had to ask the vinyard dude what that was
bandwyddth: liked thee not the thrice impressed duck?
klokwkdog: oh, I see. I listened to the Linux Link Tech Show last night, and part of it was discussion of what landmarks and places around Easton were underwater
GlobalTweening: Considering your discerning pallet Cat, I'll take your work for it. Fun reading your blog.
principalpoop: yes, klock, my rapier like wit is blunted and rusted, all this rain you know
Dexter Fong: My servants are in those ducks
cease: lol dex
doctec: you'll have to duck their pay
GlobalTweening: And making soup...
doctec: you'll have to duck their pay
klokwkdog: a wine pairing? they allow wines to marry in BC?
principalpoop: duck duck duck of earl
doctec: were they wearing duckers?
Dexter Fong: Catherwood, give bandwyddth the bill for that soup
||||||||| Catherwood brings bandwyddth the bill for that soup.
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and pipes up "Announcing 'LiliLamont', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:55 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the sitting room...
cease: i have some riffs on the duck/groucho thing in my next radio play
principalpoop: mmmm duckbill soup
GlobalTweening: I'm sure some Republican is working on an Ammendment against it
bandwyddth: saw a movie on tcm last night called "The Loved One". It was hilarious
klokwkdog: great Katrina-like shot of a guy in canoe checking someone's house in PA in NYT National section online today

Merlyn: liberace's best movie

Dexter Fong: Hi Lili
klokwkdog: no more mia farrow look, eh?
cease: liberace made a movie?
LiliLamont: Hi, Cat. Hi, Dex.
principalpoop: dears eat oats
LiliLamont: klok: No. Think Don King meets Harpo Marx.
bandwyddth: yeah, liberace was in that one. he could actually act
klokwkdog: faint praise
doctec: klok: definitely not! it's gonna take a while for it to get back to the pre-chemo length, but it's really coming in curly

principalpoop: a mod squad afro? groovy
doctec: klok: lol

bandwyddth: how very 70s
principalpoop: fine with me too, larry fine
GlobalTweening: Glad your doing better, Lili. Walking down the other side of the mountain finally?
cease: no, it was fumiyo who jsut came to tell me my steak would be delayed
cease: syncrhonistically at the same time as you, lili
bandwyddth: not that I would have worn an afro in the 70s
klokwkdog: better than having flayed steak...
LiliLamont: Yeah, I think so. Still have some additionally surgery ahead of me, probably in September. Right now I'm desperate to find work.
GlobalTweening: The cow's not cooperating?
principalpoop: even james cain did
cease: we areall with you, lili
Dexter Fong: llan: You would have worn it if it were true to the character though?
GlobalTweening: Best of luck, 'Lil...
LiliLamont: That's additional. Yeesh...
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
cease: this is beef marinated in yuzu miso for 2 days. if you can imagine soemthing better than that, you have more imagination than i
LiliLamont: Thanks, Global. And stop warming!
bandwyddth: I think I'd rather go for realism, dex
klokwkdog: sounds tasty, Cat
principalpoop: I dated uzu miso's sister, pico miso
GlobalTweening: Sounds quite delectible
klokwkdog: groan
Dexter Fong: Yo wyddth, ain't nothin' realer than an Afro, dig??
cease: i cant understand why yuzu has never become popular on this continent, but sushi has
LiliLamont: I'll bet she was, I'll bet she was...
klokwkdog: sounds like there's a Method to llan's madness
cease: its between an orange and lemon, and yet, neither
LiliLamont: Cat, can you even get yuzu here?
cease: very comin japanese fruit, ingredient. they even use it for ceremonial new years baths
bandwyddth: no, I'm not a method actor
klokwkdog: wow, stir in some Kiwi puree and you'd have something!
principalpoop: like a limon?
cease: to insure health for the rest of the year
GlobalTweening: And speaking of Clarence Willimas III, watched Dpike Lee's "Do The Right Thing" this week. Really enjoyed it.
bandwyddth: I'm a character actor
doctec: btw, for those of you who do the itunes thing: there's a new tutorial on firesigntheatre.com showing how to access and download the firesign theatre podcasts through itunes
doctec: http://www.firesigntheatre.com/podcasting/fst_itunes_directions.html
principalpoop: method in his madness
cease: at japanse markets, yes, lili. but you'd have to grow it. im sure it would thrive in florida
principalpoop: cool doc, someday I may get an ipod thing
cease: good to hear, doc
TOR Hershman: back now *baloons are released*
GlobalTweening: Type much?
LiliLamont: Or I could spend a fortune at Whole Foods. If I had a fortune, that is.
principalpoop: Sort much?
TOR Hershman: or ball loons?
doctec: you don't need an ipod to use itunes - itunes is a free download from apple.com
GlobalTweening: It's pretty easy Doc, if you use the iTunes Store. Just a click to subscribe.
cease: our west van whole foods has a red pepper quiche that is superb
LiliLamont: There are nothing but loons here.
principalpoop: oops, shows how much I know
bandwyddth: I saw something about Whole Food on television. 60 Minutes, I think
doctec: it's an mp3 player, a podcast "catcher", and a store (as global mentions)
cease: i read an article aobut he owner of whole foods today
cease: right wing freak
bandwyddth: I couldn't believe the size of the peanut butter section
GlobalTweening: I hear that Lil. Unbelievably fresh produce. Just a bit pricey.
LiliLamont: It's also known as Whole Paycheck.
TOR Hershman: I know, Lili, I've studied Earth
Dexter Fong: Catherwood, give LiliLamont a Kingfisher
||||||||| Catherwood gets lililamont a kingfisher.
GlobalTweening: LOL Lili
cease: doesnt believe companys should be able to be sued for anytying
cease: just like bush
bandwyddth: PB must be more popular than I thought
GlobalTweening: You'd love Texas tort reform then, Cat.
doctec: global: you may be right, but i'm betting there are a number of itunes users who either don't know how to get to the podcast section of itunes, nor do they know how to find the firesign theatre podcasts once they're in there
bandwyddth: I didn't mean bergman
principalpoop: that smuckers peanut butter is pretty good, i just discovered it
cease: good idea, doc
GlobalTweening: Could be, Doc...
LiliLamont: No, what Bush does is he breaks international law,subverts the Constitution, and then asks Congress to make everything okay for him. What a slimewad.
Dexter Fong: Cat: The owner, a Texan is also a vegan, a fact I find both not surprising and significant
bandwyddth: I make a pasta sauce with peanut butter
principalpoop: with a name like smuckers well...
bandwyddth: don't like it with jelly though
GlobalTweening: You noticed, Lili ;=)
Dexter Fong: Bush is also a tightball
LiliLamont: Ooh, band, that sounds yummy. Sort of a Thai peanut sauce?
principalpoop: bush is nice, compared to tick-tock last throes cheney
GlobalTweening: Whole Foods was founded and is based in Austin. Pretty progressive town.
doctec: slimewad - how colorful, and apt
klokwkdog: peanut butter has too many calories, too much saturated fat, too much salt and is too addictive; I don't keep any around. But I remember Deaf Smith brand fondly
cease: i guess dan ratther's last cbs report was of whole foods
GlobalTweening: Lots of "new age" stuff here.
bandwyddth: like that, lil
cease: it made me want to go there
LiliLamont: I wish that motherfucker was in his last throes.
bandwyddth: with garlic and lime juice
LiliLamont: Do I sound harsh?
TOR Hershman: I wish I was in mine
GlobalTweening: Harsh? IMPEACH the bastard!
principalpoop: my family genes love transfat, too bad for the rest of you
TOR Hershman: *AAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGHHHHH*
LiliLamont: Band, you're killing me here. I'm just making fettucine alfredo tonight.
TOR Hershman: Shït! False alarm
doctec: your first throw will be your last
cease: laastr throws? 6, 6, 6
klokwkdog: i heard a good term about Republican attitudes on weaponry show last week. host was talking about their "cruel satisfaction"
Dexter Fong adjusts pillow throws coning ever nearer to complete fung shui
TOR Hershman: was it were orrrrrrrrrrrr were it was ?
bandwyddth: sounds great, lil
principalpoop: not harsh, death is too good for cheney, torture the bastard until he talks
LiliLamont: I wish they would stop fucking around and impeach Bush and Cheney.
cease: even though i love bozos more, i think line for line, ref for ref, this is their best album
klokwkdog: poop -- whether or not he talks
GlobalTweening: At least until he turn over the notes on the Energy Taskforce he put together.
LiliLamont: Well, band, Doc likes it.
cease: who is they, lili?
cease: id love to but canucks' dont count
principalpoop: line for line, ref for ref, score for score, I think this does win the world cup
TOR Hershman: Night, All, must go. Stay on Groovin' Safari
doctec: lili: they would, but since BushCo has decapitated, emasculated and eviscerated congress, there's no way ...
Merlyn: Cheney should play the Penguin in the next Batman movie
GlobalTweening: Ain't gonna happen. Not this Congress. We'll see how the Fall elections turn out.
bandwyddth: what album is that, cat? I missed it as usual
GlobalTweening: Bye TOR...
Dexter Fong: Night TOR
cease: and the courts and the press. all the same folks
cease: this is dwarf, llan
GlobalTweening: LOL Merl!!
cease: the one in the library of congress
doctec: plaque on BushCo desk: "The Buck Starts, Stops, and Everything In Between Here"
LiliLamont: Cat: Congress. They have clear evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors, but the goddamn Republicans run everything and won't let it happen. These assholes have no shame.
principalpoop: check your neon shorts for shorts tor, bye
klokwkdog: we have to vote in Someone Else this fall, Lili. Otherwise, there's no way until it gets really bad. They remember Watergate and won't let that happen again until he starts executing people and puts troops in the streets. Not that there are any available
Bambi: back again
Bambi: good food
bandwyddth: yeah, I love that album. I think it's second only to 2 Places
Bambi: or would that be guud fuud
doctec: klok: lol
principalpoop: I hope you brought enough for everybody bambi
Dexter Fong: LIli: "have no shame"? How dyah think they got where they are?
GlobalTweening: There are troops in the streets Klok. New Orleans.
Merlyn: Catherwood, bring enough for everybody!
||||||||| Catherwood gets enough for everybody.
principalpoop: and ICE agents everywhere
Merlyn: there
LiliLamont: Funny you should say that, Klok. I found the following in craigslist:http://newyork.craigslist.org/que/sad/176812085.html
principalpoop: thanks M and C and B
bandwyddth: what would we do without our good valet?
LiliLamont: I read that and thought, "I wonder what they mean by competitive pay?"
bandwyddth: I just wish he could make it stop raining
doctec: they compete for the lowest pay rates
klokwkdog: oh, I like this part: Don't let misconceptions allow you to miss a great opportunity.
Dexter Fong: Competetive = not enough
GlobalTweening: You have to fight for it.
Bambi: ICE ... this time of year frozen water is good ... but I have a feeling you aren't talking about that kind of ice
Dexter Fong: pep pep pep!!!
klokwkdog: 3-6 year contract. You have to join. Can you say, "bait and switch"? Can you say "Welcome to Ramadi"? Can you say, sure, just poop out there behind the dune...?
principalpoop: have no shame, don't miss a great opportunity
principalpoop: thank you fellow kids
GlobalTweening: Ice 9, by chance?
LiliLamont: Klok: Yeah, isn't that rich? I couldn't fucking believe it. They say you can apply for those jobs, but I know, personally, for a fact, that you don't always get what you want. And in the military, that applies doubly.
Bambi: 5.15/HR... isn't that the min wage these days?
Dexter Fong: Nein!!
GlobalTweening: PA could use a vial of Ice 9 right about now.
principalpoop: NIS is called ICE now, isn't that precious?
LiliLamont: Where is Ice 9 when we need it? Oh, yeah, it's melting, along with the polar caps.
Dexter Fong: NIS spelled backwards is SIN
cease: phil austin? mr. ma?
GlobalTweening: Still don't know the acronym, P
Dexter Fong: Me niether Klok
Bambi: *shivers* ... ruins the whole meaning ... reminds me of WWII and the coola
cease: are you working these days, lili?
principalpoop: Immigration control and enforcement or something like that
LiliLamont: Bambi, for what they make you do, and the amount of work in effort and time, you are looking at less than minimum wage.
Bambi: I watched my Hogan's Hero shows faithfully :-)
klokwkdog: "no major law violations"? wow, you'd be working in great company
Dexter Fong: We ogt those border jumpin' monkeys on ICE
principalpoop: what channel is that bambi?
principalpoop: you got it fong
GlobalTweening: The Canadians are coming! The Canadians are coming!
bandwyddth: I'll bet the nazis love hogan's heroes
LiliLamont: Cat: I'm not, much to my dismay. I am sending out resumes, and I did get an immediate response saying that the particular job I inquired about was filled, but they liked my background. They should! We'll see what happens.
Dexter Fong: Jawohl
bandwyddth: "I see nothing!" yeah, right
principalpoop: the terrorist cell in miami could not even do the reconnaisance and planning to rob a shoe store
Bambi: sounds like the major hours they seem to be expecting once corps get you on salary ... using good of the company, implying you are putting your job at risk (without actually saying that) etc. to coerse you to do 3 people's jobs....
cease: aha i thought you had secured employment with feds, lili
GlobalTweening: Those lovable kooky nazis...
LiliLamont: Klok: I saw that and figured, okay, no father rapers, just litterers.
principalpoop: ahhh super lili, success is 99percent sweat, oops perseverance
Bambi: not now princep ... I remember them :-)
klokwkdog: TPM had a rundown on those guys; heck, they weren't even Muslims, more like Koresh wannabes
LiliLamont: Alert: Doc is having computer problems. He'll be back.
klokwkdog: Lili -- reboot him
principalpoop: hogans heros and mchales navy and combat, those were the days
Dexter Fong: F Troop for me
||||||||| It's 10:20 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| TOR Hershman - dead from jaundice
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
GlobalTweening: Anything to people scared and in line, Klok...
principalpoop: koresh knew how to get guns in America
klokwkdog: can you imagine a similar jolly program about this war in 20 years?
Bambi: ok, good luck doc ... hurry back
principalpoop: that blond on f-troop hubba hubba
LiliLamont: Klok: I'd love to! I just told him, and he said he beat me to it. Think of the physicalcontortions that would take.
Bambi: watched them all with my Dad when I was growing up ... tons of fun
cease: yes klok. it will happen
cease: baghdad follies
principalpoop: sure, the zany osama show, watch him plan and fail yet another attack
bandwyddth: funny, I was just thinking about f troop today and how it made the indians look stupid
GlobalTweening: The Bush Brigade, Klok?
Dexter Fong: llan: That's why it's called comedy
klokwkdog: no, the Jolly Jihadis, Tweeny
principalpoop: then off course MASH
GlobalTweening: Not to mention white people ;)
LiliLamont: Well, band, they were screwed by the government. Not stupid, just victimized.
klokwkdog: I wonder how front-line WWII soldiers who lost friends in battle felt watching "Hogan's Heroes"
bandwyddth: I know it's only comedy
Dexter Fong: A cultural landslide
GlobalTweening: MASH was a wonderful series. Some good messages. I loved Alda ripping off Groucho on occasion.
Bambi: f troop was an equal opportunity offender as many of the comedies were
LiliLamont: I know it's only comedy, but I like it.
Dexter Fong: afk for re-moistening
Bambi: probably wished they could have been in THAT camp instead of the one they were in!
LiliLamont: I loved Mash.
GlobalTweening: More a like a cultural cesspit, Dex...
klokwkdog: afk for food!
doctec: am i back?
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Hemlock Stones inside, makes a note of the time (10:23 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
principalpoop: yes you are doc
bandwyddth: howdy stones!
principalpoop: ciao stones
Hemlock Stones: Greetings
GlobalTweening: Hail and well met, Hemlock...
Bambi: when we stop being able to laugh at ourselves ... we are taking ourselves way too seriously ... a lesson I am still working on LOL
bandwyddth: I'll bet the weather is better in your part of the world, HS
doctec: yaaaaaaaay
LiliLamont: Doc! You're back! Woo hoo! Now I can cook! We've been waiting for this for hundreds of seconds!
Bambi: Hey Stones!

GlobalTweening: You have sun in England?
cease: hows it stoning?
bandwyddth: yeah, I was listening to the BBC this morning. You guys know all about it
Hemlock Stones: lol Tween, yes even in England the sun is seen occasionally
LiliLamont: Gentlemen, I'm going to drop out for a while and get myself to the galley. It's not easy tearing myself away, but food must be had.
||||||||| El Diablo Yamamoto enters at 10:25 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and hurries off to the Haberdashery Barn.
principalpoop: I was serious, grrrrr bambi
cease: the original was funnier: methedrine
GlobalTweening: Hey Yam

El Diablo Yamamoto: No EYES
GlobalTweening: LOL Lili
Bambi: enjoy the cookin' Lili :-)
doctec: i think he's hanging out with al fresco in the backyard
El Diablo Yamamoto: It's wet in the area for sure

GlobalTweening: The ayes have it!
Hemlock Stones: you got that wrong Lilli, Summer was on a Wednesday last year so its Thursday this year
Bambi: see that ... I can't tell .. that 's the problem with words ... no inflection lol

principalpoop: bon ap llan
Dexter Fong: Hey Yamster
El Diablo Yamamoto: oi
cease: weve had more heat than we need already. and its only june
GlobalTweening: LL, what brings you to Garland?
cease: fucking global warming
Bambi: say the same thing a dozen ways and it changes the meaning depending upon the emphasis and level of sarcasm
principalpoop: questioning my inflection now?
GlobalTweening: Oops, too late
Dexter Fong: Hey Hemster
cease: soon heavy industry will make it possible to everyone to have her own pot
Bambi: enjoy lanwydd
principalpoop sings if you don't know me by know....
GlobalTweening: Your infection is questionable
doctec: al gore was on "the daily show" last night, he was actually pretty funny - got in a few good lines
cease: yes he is/was
cease: d you see his flick yet, doc/lili?
GlobalTweening: Gore's mellowed quite a bit. Maybe he runs in 2008.
Bambi: and you are in Canada and feel that way ... Tweeny's in Texas!
cease: i saw it in theatre rather than vid rent just to support its cause
principalpoop: I caught a moment of him on charlie rose last week, he is doing the rounds
cease: yes van is hotter now than we're used to at least in van
doctec: cat: not yet. we intend to though. perhaps this weekend, or monday probably (since we have social engagements both saturday and sunday)
cease: had to buy my parents an air conditioner the other day
GlobalTweening: And warm it is. But it's always like that here.
cease: they're form LA
GlobalTweening: It's the hurricanes that we are feeling, althought thrankfully we've been spared so far this season.
El Diablo Yamamoto: It's not the heat here, it's the goddam humidity
principalpoop: I thought the humidity might bother them
El Diablo Yamamoto: 500%
doctec: the humidity is pretty intense here in ct too
Bambi: it's early yet ... sigh...
cease: anyone got fred';s book?
Dexter Fong: Whooo!! That's faster than anybody's been humid before
Bambi: same here Yammy in the 'sunny' humid south
El Diablo Yamamoto: You're not that far from me, tho you prolly are being spared the floods
Dexter Fong: Cat: Sent away fro it
GlobalTweening: Not yet, Cat. Sure like to read it though.
doctec: we held off installing the a.c. units to keep electricity costs down, until last weekend when we couldn't take it any more
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 10:31 PM and Bunnyboy waltzes out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
Bunnyboy: lo dere
cease: some great images on the included cd
Hemlock Stones: 500%, isnt that actually underwater ?
cease: hey bun
principalpoop: nice grape, bunnyboy
Hemlock Stones: hi Bunny
GlobalTweening: Evenin' Bun
Dexter Fong: lo Bunny
cease: the cmoics i ordered arrived. they weigh a lot
El Diablo Yamamoto: You catch on fast
Dexter Fong: Cat: YOu got your copy?
Bambi: we've used the AC in the afternoon but could have used whole house ac! my office is an oven.
Bambi: hi Bunny
cease: yes. took me a coupole of weeks, at most
GlobalTweening: Those moics can weigh a ton...
El Diablo Yamamoto: Significant portions of real estate in my area are underwater presently
doctec: 15,000 british therman units do keep lili's place fairly comfortable
doctec: thermal
cease: isnt your place always hot in summer, bambi?
cease: we are not used to hot junes
Bunnyboy: Oh, golly, does the Resident have to ask de Congress for EVERYTHING?
doctec: we shut them down in the evenings though
cease: i'm loknig serkously into geothermal heat/air con
Dexter Fong: Yam: Do you now have waterfront property?
Bambi: yes it sure is Cat
principalpoop: socim can give the postman a hernia
GlobalTweening: Any iceburgs difting into the harbor yet, Cat?
Bambi: hot and humid
Hemlock Stones: in the UK many people dont seem to realise that keeping cool is as expensive as keeping warm, they run AC with the doors open wide
GlobalTweening: Geothermal would work well in CN, from what I've heard.
cease: no iceberg would survive the trip to van
GlobalTweening: That would indeed be costly, Hemlock.
klokwkdog: hey, Bun
principalpoop: just doing their part to stop global warming stones
Bambi: lol stones
Hemlock Stones: downright crazy Tween
cease: la perdida is very good, bun.
Hemlock Stones: lol PP
Bunnyboy: All Jackie Gleason fans should stampede to get a copy of THE COLOR HONEYMOONERS. 9 original eps of THE JACKIE GLEASON SHOW, from 1966. Joy!
Bambi: there is a english lady here who installed one of those fancy 'always on' stoves (natural gas version) ... and has to jack the AC up and they pay a fortune for cooling in the summer here
principalpoop: ahhhh crazy gugenheimer
GlobalTweening: Talk about self-defeating technology
Dexter Fong: Bambi: Is that great or what!!?? They somehow convince some poor jerk that "always on" is a desirabe feature
Bunnyboy: When I saw that olde footage of the POV camera rolling over the water toward Miami Beach, and heard Johnny Olson's voice....well, it put me back to my wee childhood.
Merlyn: you can't even kill yourself when the bill comes
Bambi: ovens always on and ready to cool, all the eyes always on to just stick a pot on...but boy!
cease: i dont see the purpose of an always on oven
Hemlock Stones: look how many TV sets and other gadgets are always on standby, the meshuggeners think it means off
Bambi: cool=cook
cease: isnt that called a fireplace?
Bambi: and the ovens are a set temperature two of them
Dexter Fong: Cat: You are an educated consumer, and hence, unwelcome
Bambi: yes, Stones!!
Bunnyboy: poop: Unfortunately, all the shows are Kramden-centric. None of the other beloved sideliners like Guggenheim, the Poor Soul, Reggie Van Gleason, et. al.
cease: i check consumer reports before i buy any such item, usually
principalpoop: oops ok bunnyboy
Merlyn: "kramden-centric"
principalpoop: which alice?
cease: great sf wrtier, ralph j gleason
GlobalTweening: I believe we had an "always on" tube TV back in the 60's. It was a sensible feature with a tube device.
cease: i think that was his name. great liner notes for coltrane albums. used to have a colum in roling stone
Bambi: even new Dell computers have a light on the motherboard because of it always being on in a fashion
Bunnyboy: But, supposedly, some of those JACKIE GLEASON SHOWS should be on their way. They're mentioned as "Coming Soon" on the video insert.
cease: sounds like 1984
||||||||| It's 10:40 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| bandwyddth - dead from pneumonia
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
principalpoop: I love him saying smoooooth when he drank his coffee served by a chorus girl
Dexter Fong: gesundheidt

Bunnyboy: poop: Sheila Macrae.
GlobalTweening: You missed the meeting, Cat? We're already there.
principalpoop: or something like that, been years
Bambi: we have out of town guests coming in the morning :-)
Bunnyboy: sic
Bunnyboy: sorry Sheila
cease: gleason will forever be a character in Underworld for me
principalpoop: ahhh sheila is the best :D and the very first one
Hemlock Stones: i have two Dells Bambi but i turn them off at the mains socket
principalpoop: ahh visitors bambi
klokwkdog: tweeny -- all CRT-type TVs now "always on" and pump current through the filament so it does not have much warm-up time to show picture. There is generally a "vacation" switch on the back so the sucker can be turned off and won't catch fire while you're on holiday
GlobalTweening: Same here. I have all the computer stuff connected to a UPS and shut it off there.
Bambi: I don't blame you Stones LOL
principalpoop: what?
Dexter Fong: I just unplug from the street lamp and everything goes off
Hemlock Stones: i am doing some radio over your side of the Pond Bambi
principalpoop: have fun on hatteras, I am jealous
Bambi: sounds like the TV should be on permanent vacation?
Hemlock Stones: lol dex
Bunnyboy: The same video group that puts out these Gleason products has also managed to steadily release an exhaustive series of DARK SHADOWS sets, so that probably bodes well for future releases.
Bambi: lol Dex
klokwkdog: my TV runs 4-6 hours a week, max
doctec: i unhook the gerbil from the exercise wheel, that causes all my computer stuff to shut down
Bambi: thanks Clem!!! :-)
Hemlock Stones: good night Clem and thanks again
Dexter Fong: Night Clem, thanks so much
klokwkdog: have a great trip, CNI! watch out for those creeping dunes
principalpoop: you are the man clem, have a fun week :D
GlobalTweening: Thanks for all your work, JL...
cease: good work as always, clem
Dexter Fong: Doc: You have a gerbil? Why back in my day, we only had earthworms
Bunnyboy: nite Clem!
principalpoop: and the kittyhawks
klokwkdog: I just got my HDTV card running again, and the local stations' pictures are as stunning as ever...and the content is just as crummy as it was before
doctec: well, time to unhook the gerbil, dinner will be ready soon and i have to do my ancillary prep help thing
ah,clem: my pleasure, good night all :)
GlobalTweening: Now that I've found that Frontline and other PBS stuff is streamable, I have even less reason to put the TV back up again.
doctec: nite ah clem, good show tonight
GlobalTweening: See ya Doc...
Bunnyboy: Don't be content with content.
klokwkdog: happy dinner, DT, kudos to lili, the Chef!
Dexter Fong: Night Doc and best to Lili
principalpoop: bon ap doc and thanks for your efforts too
Bunnyboy: Table that amendment, Senator.
Bambi: if you have time, our remote live show JimmyLee and Bambi Show will be even more remote this weekend ... going to see friends in NC and doing the show from there
doctec: ttfn ttyl l8r etc :-)
||||||||| doctec rushes out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's doctec?! It's 10:45 PM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
||||||||| ah,clem rushes off, saying "10:45 PM? Mark Time is almost on! Where's a radio?"
principalpoop: have extra yoko muso for me
Bunnyboy: In Dex We Trust.

Bunnyboy: nite Doc and Lili!
klokwkdog: tweeny -- CSPAN streams, too. live and archived
Dexter Fong Appreciates the truss
Bunnyboy: And thanks for your support.
Bunnyboy: It's in the bag.
principalpoop: does watching hdtv make you feel any more republican? want to kick a poor person or anything like that?
cease: yoko muso?
GlobalTweening: Yep, caught that. Fun (and aggrivating) watching our reps at work.
Dexter Fong Appreciates the lift and separation
principalpoop: yiki mesi?
cease: is that john lennon's wife in the next world?
klokwkdog: poop -- well, normally I just flip to a subchannel that has 24/7 local weather; that's nice, cheaper than cable
cease: yuzu is a japanese citrus. miso is a paste they make soup, etc out of
cease: soy supereme
principalpoop: yaka musi
cease: the comingatnio makes a wonderful meat marinade
principalpoop: yum
cease: miso is often combined with other ingredients to channge the flavour
Merlyn: is that where "miso horny" comes from?
principalpoop: ahhh ok, be careful if you watch a speech by bush
cease: shiso is another good combination. a plant whose leaves are used in cooking and its seeds are delicious by theselves
GlobalTweening: Well, I'm going to go marinate myself with a matress. Be well and happy... Nite all.
cease: strong flavour
klokwkdog: I can also see the subchannels, unline the poor devils who pay for cable, then pay $10/mo extra for HD to see 6 or 7 channels that they need a special box and a real HD monitor to see. I just watch on my LCD monitor and pull stuff out of the air.
cease: like eating a forest
||||||||| GlobalTweening rushes off, saying "10:48 PM? Mark Time is almost on! Where's a radio?"
klokwkdog: nite Tweeny
principalpoop: thanks again tween, soak well
cease: i dont have the cable box, klok
cease: im just using the tvs as monitors for the hd cam.
Bunnyboy: The hospital cafeteria that I frequent actually rotates this menu item: Miso Honey Cod.
principalpoop: sub channels, cool, can you get duluth?
Bunnyboy: I liked to bust a gut when I first read that one.
cease: the picture is already as good as i wanna see, withou the box
klokwkdog: cat -- I don't have any box atoll xcept for my PC. And just some scraps of tin foil as an antenna
cease: he can get tierra del fuego
principalpoop: alright bucko
klokwkdog: cat -- actually, I had to have it removed
cease: sounds gvreat bun
Bunnyboy: In military parlance, that would be "Cod, Miso Honnnnneee"
principalpoop: hehehe
cease: sounds like something unclue duke would say
klokwkdog: he is really "unclue", isn't he?
klokwkdog needs a new box of clues, size M
Dexter Fong: Honey! Miso Cod at door wanting back fin back
cease: i see his assistant is suing the estate for back wages today
principalpoop: I am intrigued by the idea of sub-channels on my tv
klokwkdog: big news item this week: Norway has mastered Cod farming...
cease: did you notice that blly preston died recently?
Bunnyboy: cease: Would that be Honey?
cease: i thought he was the beatles age, but no
cease: barely older than me.
principalpoop: I bet the cods are not happy about that, well, maybe they are, I don't know many cods
Dexter Fong: My sub channel only plays Das Boot
klokwkdog: poop-- digital broadcast TV in US allows up to 5 regular resolution TV channels on each signal
cease: i didnt know he was that young when he was with the beatlesd
Bunnyboy: yes, cat. Sad, but not unexpected. He'd been battling kidney disease for years.
principalpoop: yes, he went too soon :(
klokwkdog: it's coming fast, 'cause the Republicans want to sell all the VHF frequencies to their friends in the telecomm biz
cease: fiffy fucking nine. he was younger than Any firesign
LiliLamont: What kind of fertilizer do you use when you farm cod?
klokwkdog: disguised as "we need the bandwidth for emergency services because they didn't work during 9/11"
LiliLamont: Okay, I'll go away now.
klokwkdog: lili -- they have to use special stuff; the cod tend to eat each other when bored
cease: him on the roof at the end of flick, that great concert. amazing
principalpoop: ahhh, interleaving, no problems with lucy showing up in korea mash unit talking to oprah?
Dexter Fong: Lili: Floatable
cease: that was 1970?
Bunnyboy: nite Lili!
LiliLamont: klok: Couldn't you say the same thing about people?
cease: off you go, lili
cease: keep well
principalpoop: good luck lily, keep looking
LiliLamont: I'll be in the galley....
klokwkdog: they're going to auction off over 200 MHz of our public air waves to their buddies, with about 5% of that space going to the "emergency services"
Dexter Fong: Lili: With cod, there's a great deal less pleasure involved
LiliLamont: Poor cod.
klokwkdog: mostly to cell phone companies which could then offer frequencies that penetrate buildings better
cease: who is "our?"
cease: unless they're bush donors, they arent us
principalpoop: throw me a peanut lily
klokwkdog: sorry cat, dumb Americans only get this privilege. of losing public airwaves
Dexter Fong: and being pentrated in buildings
cease: our local phone/cable server is as bad as any of yours
principalpoop: hey, our government knows best for us, what are you, some kinda trouble-maker?
cease: ts censorship of critical websites is cited as an example in the net neurtralitry debate
klokwkdog: I'm sure they will annoy the hell out of Canada to stop broadcasting on VHF, too. At least within 50 mi. of the border.
principalpoop: wyden, threatened to filibuster that communications bill, good for him
cease: were all within 50 mi of the border
Merlyn: If I've been ignoring people, I've been at and away from my keyboard a lot tonight
klokwkdog: yeah, that's what worries me, Cat
Merlyn: either that, or I've been ignoring you
cease: as usual, merl
cease: any firesnews, merl?
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and intones "Presenting 'llanwydd', just granted probation at 10:58 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
Dexter Fong: Not ignored here

principalpoop: avon on the dale
llanwydd: the optician was a rather gloomy guy. I told him I liked bristol and he said it was as dismal as any city
Hemlock Stones: a lot of Romans drowned as a result, it was no accident
llanwydd: he ought to see our american cities
klokwkdog: poop -- you have the same river. It just takes its own sweet time to get to the ocean via NC.

Dexter Fong: Offer special Miso Honey Prawn tonight

Dexter Fong: She contortionist
principalpoop: oops, I did not know it was damned now
llanwydd: a lot of rivers in my general area end with the dutch word "kill", meaning river
Dexter Fong: Don't forget Lost lake Klok
klokwkdog: one of the interesting things about canoeing down the Cape Fear was the 19th centruy lock system for, I guess, barges around each rapid. They were still there 40 years ago, anyway
Hemlock Stones: over here llan we have a lot of places , rivers and hills with double names meaning the same thing, i guess ancient brits were very forgetful

principalpoop: oops, yes, the guy who slept with the bowling balls
principalpoop: it says warren RI, I blame nino

klokwkdog: although there is some agitation to remove the latter as insensitive

Honey Sanchez: is it done yet, bambi?
Dexter Fong: Being dwarfed by mighty Delaware
Bambi: a little over done for my taste Honey lol
principalpoop: I think washington dc will be smaller

Dexter Fong: That Roger Williams what a piano player
cease: i remember him
principalpoop: the argument about grace, andemonmenmons
klokwkdog: he founded Providence, bought some land from the Narragansetts. But he let in a whole bunch of strange people, many of whom just killed the occupants and took their land.
Bambi: seems like all we do is check the spam these days ... only a small percentage of email is actually real email any more ... such a waste
cease: people are strange
cease: and other doors
principalpoop: I come by my insanity honestly, not just drugs and alcohol
Dexter Fong: Klok: Depend on what you mean by strange
Bambi: and it's not that I don't get a pretty decent amount of real email cuz I do, but the spam is so much more LOL
klokwkdog: When the Inquisition arrived in spanish florida and began burning them, the Jews there fled to Newport, where they received sanctuary and built the first synagogue in the Colonies.
Dexter Fong: Klok: You saying the Jews are those murderous strangers?
Hemlock Stones: i get up to a hundred a day Bambi and at least fifty percent of it is spam
Bambi: is that all Stones? lol
llanwydd: I used to walk by that synagogue. I thought it was the oldest in America
klokwkdog: Dex -- no, those came earlier, B4 the jews, after Rodger set the place up
llanwydd: I didn't know there had been jews in FL
klokwkdog: but in general, RI was always a pretty rowdy place, full of pirates and highwaymen and strange political groups
principalpoop: they did not build one in miami before newport? oldest surviving maybe
Dexter Fong: Klok: Oh. the nightclub where he played "Autumn Leaves" till the landscape was bare
Bambi: don't cha just love the spammers .... NOT
Dexter Fong: My kind of state
Bambi: fortunately most hit the spam filter and get washed away
klokwkdog: poop -- if so, wasn't in the Colonies. FL wasn't invaded & absorbed until 1824 or something
principalpoop: I am kidding, no white people lived in miami before the invention of AC, his statue is the florida statue in the house of represenatives
principalpoop: oops yes

Hemlock Stones: AOl provides spam and pop up blockers but perhaps unsurprisingly it it doesnt seem to stop AOL spam and pop ups

principalpoop: I thought you were talking about marriages, thanks B
Dexter Fong: United we Stand, divided you die
Bambi: lol
klokwkdog: Hemlock -- is there some reason you use AOHell?
principalpoop: new jersey has funny laws about owning property, you do not own it
principalpoop: the states rents it to you, or something like that, you must be approved
llanwydd: it's that way everywhere. it's called eminent domain
Bambi: I noticed that princep ... I didn't believe it till I read it myself
klokwkdog: Poop -- a number of native american tribes have the same idea...
Dexter Fong: poop: ;course not, you are merely the temporary guardian of it
cease: hows it goin, honey?

Honey Sanchez: ahhhhhhhh i forgot the number, dex
Dexter Fong: Oh! Honey, you wanna meet Miso Honey (blusj)
llanwydd: I rent a small apartment and the rent is reasonable
Honey Sanchez: property taxes here are outrageous too for a piece of barren desert
Bambi: actually First Nation thought it was silly for anyone to 'own' land ... Carlyn probably said the old philosophy best ... it's like a bunch of fleas arguing over who owns the dog ... our time is so short by comparison to that of the earth.
klokwkdog: Honey -- check the log; it's a running motif tonight...
principalpoop: I was surprised that virginia is so old but lots of farmland still between richmond and washington, but that is changing now
Hemlock Stones: hey llan, over here we even have to pay property taxes on property we rent and dont own, hows that for robbery
cease: better than miso horny

Honey Sanchez: i am surrounded by reservations
principalpoop: or a casino
klokwkdog: Some crazy Englishman, as usual
cease: you pay for views in prices here. isnt that true everywhere?
principalpoop: no, that is too easy
klokwkdog: cat -- yes, but only once
Bambi: Virginia seems to do that too, but by charging a fortune to buy property with a view, thereby getting higher taxes on it
Dexter Fong: William Penn Pron
Bambi: William Penn if memory serves
cease: klok, ok. but A LOT
Honey Sanchez: i think it is that way everywhere in the us, bambi
Honey Sanchez: you wanna view you gotta pay only people who can afford a view are affluent
Dexter Fong: We pay a fortune just to look out our windows

Bambi: yeah ... probably so Honey lol
Honey Sanchez: or is that effluent hmmm
cease: for me to get a house with a view from the south side of the street would cost me maybe $250k more than from the north side of the street with only view of hte houses accross the street

Bambi: have a great week Merlyn!
Hemlock Stones: good night Merlyn
klokwkdog: Cat -- as I said, Roanoke Rapids NC is where the coast used to be. If things melt, it may be there again. This view stuff is highly overrated, IMO. People seem to watch TV most of the time, not the landscape.
Dexter Fong: Stones, bro: We be callin' it the De Fenestration Tax...cause if you don't pay it, dey frows you out the window
principalpoop: you are lucky fong
Merlyn: hey stones, is Nino right that you're on AOL?

Dexter Fong: Klok: I watch nature screen savers while I listen to Rain Forest sounds
Bambi: I saw how much it costs to live there and knew I'd only get to visit ...maybe LOL
