||||||||| Catherwood stomps in at 10:03 PM, dragging El Diablo Yamamoto by the hair and asks "Can anyone vouch for this yo-yo?"
cease: maybe if i say, i wonder where elayne is, she'll show up just as instantly
SirTweenalot: Howdy doody, Dex...

||||||||| Catherwood strides up and pipes up "Presenting 'Hemlock Stones', just granted probation at 10:04 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
Dexter Fong: Hi Bambi, Cat, Senor OI!. Senora Sanchez, Hot Klok, llan, MT. Merly, Mudeski, Tween, fading boney and what ever the hell else
klokwkHOTdog begins to fret, his PC having neither Reset nor Panic buttons and Doug. Adams not yet canonized, leaving no one to pray to for help...
Hemlock Stones: Greetings
El Diablo Yamamoto: You all can read some of my arrangements of electrons and Phosphors at the above address
SirTweenalot: Are you familiar with the (very) old Don Johnson movie "A Boy And His Dog", Yam?

Merlyn: yammy put a link up, but I don't know why you got auto-redirected

cease: east timor uber alles, yammy
El Diablo Yamamoto: That's never happened that I can recall before

El Diablo Yamamoto: Chist we gotta get llan a real compy
El Diablo Yamamoto: I gotta find one w/no cats in it....
Dexter Fong: I can get llan a good deal on an early steam-driven PC
llanwydd: I've enjoyed some of ellison's short stories but I've never read any of his novels
boney: Did you get the URL, cat?
El Diablo Yamamoto: Mine are coal-oil fired, a bit sooty, but run at all of 4.77 mHz
Dexter Fong: Eli's son?
Merlyn: I bought a big collection of ellison stuff at the convention and had him sign it
klokwkHOTdog: just rent A Boy and His Dog -- they did a fairly good job of it
llanwydd: steam computer? Did fulton make it?
El Diablo Yamamoto: I saw that a long time ago
Dexter Fong: mHz = Miles per hour sleeping
||||||||| It's 10:10 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| TheAustinTweenparty - dead from Globner's disease
||||||||| Bambi - dead from Globner's disease
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Hemlock's Moll, Honey: a lot of Globner's going around
llanwydd: globner's is going around tonight
El Diablo Yamamoto: Globner gets all the action. I wanna see a good defenestration!
cease: have you read much ellison, merl?
klokwkHOTdog: llan prolly has a subscription ot WebTV or whatever it is, too, so just replacing the h/w is not enough, it might get messy
Dexter Fong: Plenty of Globner's to go around, honey
||||||||| At 10:10 PM, boney vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
cease: he was one of the first sf writers i read, in 60s
Hemlock Stones: thanks for the message Honey
cease: when he was doing the glass tit column for the la free press
klokwkHOTdog: tweeny & honey are really getting messed over or else there is something nasty afoot in the Southwest
llanwydd: I have msntv2. the so-called "upgrade" to webtv
cease: riffed on in firesign play,
SirTweenalot: Not at all familiar Cat. Was more into Heinlein & such.
klokwkHOTdog: llan -- I know, I just forget the name; it's all so horrible
El Diablo Yamamoto: M$N aieee! The Debbils woik that is
cease: ellison a story writer but also lots of screen plays
SirTweenalot: My computer was accidently reset. That's the old screen name.
cease: was part of the babylon 5 project
klokwkHOTdog: it's...cheap, Yam
cease: wrote great sciprts for star trek, twilight zones, lots of others
klokwkHOTdog: oh yeah, and a real nice guy, too, Cat ;-)
llanwydd: I liked "Repent Harlequin"
El Diablo Yamamoto: True, my setup is spensive
SirTweenalot: Wow Cat, had no idea. Be interesting to know which TZ episodes.
cease: i was at an event with him in van in i think 93. yes very friendly
klokwkHOTdog: it's prolly in his IMDB bio, Tweeny
cease: his wife is really nice too. she got me to sign up for her little fan club
SirTweenalot: Good idea, Klok.
cease: not the serling ones, the next generation. i think he was a big part of that happening
cease: wrote some great scirpts, caused others to be selected, etc
SirTweenalot: The Night Gallery, eh?
klokwkHOTdog: cat -- I just know him from guesting on Tom Snyder show. He was awful bent ouf of shape his frau talked him into going on a cruise ship voyage
cease: or maybenot wrote but turned already writen sotries into screenplays
cease: no that was serling. this was called the twiighnt zone. 80s i think
Merlyn: oh, the remake series?
cease: oddly it was seeing him on tom snyder that i most remember, more than anyof his tales
SirTweenalot: Gotcha. The remake.
Dexter Fong: Spin off was called the Dusk Department , I believe
llanwydd: I've always hated the remakes of the famous tv shows
cease: yes merl
Merlyn: harlan is ALWAYS bent out of shape
Hemlock's Moll, Honey: lol dex
llanwydd: Like twilight zone and outer limits
llanwydd: although I liked the originals
Dexter Fong: SCORE!!
cease: this was when star trek and close enounters came out
cease: i loved what he said about those flicks
Dexter Fong: Then there was the crepescule Campartment
SirTweenalot: Not the one they did in Canada?
SirTweenalot: The New Twilight Zone?
Dexter Fong: Evening Evasions
cease: he dismissed star trek as born again new ageism, an appropriate coment during the carter era
llanwydd: who did what in canada?
Hemlock's Moll, Honey: everyone does everything in canada now don't they?
Dexter Fong: Sundowners
cease: and of close enoucnters, he said, why are we expecting aliens to come and solve our problmes?
SirTweenalot: Made in Toronto or wherever in the 90's actually, I do believe.
Dexter Fong muters stop me before I run out of ideas
cease: not star trek, star Wars!
cease: we try honey
cease: sometimes the police are distracted
Dexter Fong: We try Maple syrup]
Mark Time: don't fight it...it's over your head...it's alright...you wakeup in your bed...
SirTweenalot: The Independence Day scenario is more plausible. What we've been doing to otgher countries.
SirTweenalot: other
cease: it can be imdb's easily enough
klokwkHOTdog: He is famous for his hot temper and outspoken nature which has lead to more then his fair share of high profile feuds. The most famous of them was with "Star Trek" (1966) creator Gene Roddenberry, who had Ellison's famous television script ("City on the Edge of Forever") heavily rewritten to fit with his (Roddenberry's) more utopian ideas of the future. Roddenberry would not allow him to put his pseudonym "Cordwainer Bird" on the project. And, as insult to injury, for the rest of his life Roddenberry took credit for having "saved" the story which is consistently ranked as the best of the series by critics and fans and as one of TV's 100 greatest moments by "TV Guide"
llanwydd: they keep me sleepless at night
cease: but he said this in the 70s. of course it's still true
cease: he istill famous, klok.
cease: not dead yet
SirTweenalot: they keep me sleepless in seattle
Hemlock's Moll, Honey: ooooooh i didnt know that that was extremely rottenberry of him!
Dexter Fong: There is no doubt that Harlan Ellison is rather a curmudgeon...brilliant, yes...but still a curmudgeon \=)
llanwydd: the rumble in your ears
Hemlock's Moll, Honey: nearly everyone is a curmudgeon these days
cease: i read alot of sf in the 60s, less over the decadses and rarely now
||||||||| Elayne steps in at 10:19 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
cease: but i enjoy listening to harlan babble
Dexter Fong: I'm not a curmudgeon..I'm a grouch
Elayne: Evenin' all! Love the front page redesign, Brian, nice job!
llanwydd: hi Elayne!
Hemlock's Moll, Honey: hello E
cease: and speakkng of babbling, her'es El
Merlyn: he went from enfant terrible to curmudgeon
SirTweenalot: I got my officlial curmudgeon cirtificate last week.
Dexter Fong: Hi Elayne
SirTweenalot: Hey E...
klokwkHOTdog: seems a bit beyond curmudgeon when he threatens to nail your pet's head to your door...
Elayne: Oh thank goodness, I thought you were going to say "speaking of Harlan, here's Elayne" and I wouldn't know HOW to respond to that.
llanwydd: I like listening to Brooks babble
Hemlock's Moll, Honey: lol
klokwkHOTdog: tweeny -- I doubt it. You have to take an AARP test to get one; it's kind of like Mensa, but in reverse
cease: you seen one harlan, you seen em all
Dexter Fong: klok: That's an instant makeover for your house
Mark Time: talk?...it's only talk....
Merlyn: good pen name, harlan elaynnison
Elayne: I have to be careful what I say about Harlan, as he's a FOAF (friend of, in fact, many of my friends)...
klokwkHOTdog: Dex -- not to mention for your pet
SirTweenalot: lol Klok
cease: i have no pen, but i must scream?
SirTweenalot: I'm a member of AARP, so I guess I'm 1/2 way there.
llanwydd: brouhaha balderdash ballyhoo
Dexter Fong: klok:lol
Elayne: I like your Orange Club pictures, Cat, it all looks so yummy!
Hemlock Stones: ...
Merlyn: the world according to aarp
klokwkHOTdog: cat -- we don't have to read SF anymore; just look at the newspaper or TV.
Dexter Fong: .....
Merlyn: starring robin williams when he's 80
cease: we were both in krassner's pot book together
klokwkHOTdog keeps meaning to join AARP but can't remember to remember
cease: yes the food was superb, el
Mark Time: comment cliches commentaries conversations criticism
SirTweenalot: Much stranger than fiction, Klok. Much...
Hemlock Stones: i see plenty of fiction in the papers Klok but not much science
cease: i'm going to an island famous for its food next weekened el,
cease: llok forward to my freviews of it
llanwydd: is that for real, cat? were you mentioned in a krassner book?
cease: true, stones, i think its lillagl in the states now
Dexter Fong: Cat: Speaking of Krasner, I was quite surprised to see that P Proctor had written for the East Village Other..a newsrag I was quite familiar with back in the day
klokwkHOTdog: Hemlock -- please see Wikipedia's article on "Creation 'Science' " and you will believe
Elayne: Which island is that, Cat?
cease: Salt Spring.
Dexter Fong: Pepper Fall
cease: hippy capital from before there were hippies
Hemlock Stones: like Alice i try to believe at least a hundred impossibly things before breakfast
Elayne: Off the coast of Van or Washington?
cease: i going to go study its eco houses
SirTweenalot: Seafood Surprise for din-din, eh?
Dexter Fong: Stones: I rarely eat breakfast...what should I do?
cease: its close to vanocuver island, about 2 hours by ferry from here
Elayne: Sounds pretty interesting, Cat!
cease: i'll post pix, el
Hemlock's Moll, Honey: sounds very interesting, cat
Elayne: I'm still struggling to learn about the Canadian island on the east coast. My boss has visited a number of them in his yacht so I'm starting to pick up a little knowledge.
Hemlock Stones: stop ordering it then Dexter
Elayne: I'm really crap at geography, though.
cease: the technology i'm thinking of having a house built out of is the same as used to contruct the great wall of china
Elayne: Please do, Cat! Between you and Carolyn Ibis, I see some of the best Canadian photographers around. :)
Dexter Fong: Elayne: Google Charles Atlas
Dexter Fong: Cat: Coolie labor?
Hemlock's Moll, Honey: lol dex
SirTweenalot: Yes, plase do take pics of the eco-houses and post the. I'd be very interested. We had one guy here in Austin who took a vacant lot and put up a geodesic dome.
Elayne: Unca Dex, I wouldn't touch Charles Atlas with an 80-pound weakling.
cease: i have to remember to take pix i can post from the stil cam. the camcorder's no good for posting yet
llanwydd: I never use google. always yahoo
Elayne: Well, unless you get a YouTube account.
cease: if someone form the 50s were reading this, they'd think it was teenagers exchanging slang
Dexter Fong: Elayne: I got there early, got an inner tube account
SirTweenalot: You find Yahoo better than Google, LL?
Elayne: Keeps you afloat, eh Dex?
llanwydd: I've found some interesting stuff on youtube
Hemlock's Moll, Honey: it isn't??
Dexter Fong: Cat: Nifty
cease: google and yahoo are both the sorts of words people would chuckle over when i was a kid
Hemlock Stones: how long can You Tube last Elayne, Kazaar caved in today ?
SirTweenalot: lol Cat
Elayne: Hey, get those slang-using teenagers off my lawn!
El Diablo Yamamoto: goddam kids
llanwydd: for MY money, tween
llanwydd: not that I paid for it
Dexter Fong: And tell 'em to take that weed wacker with 'em
Elayne: Hemlock, I think YouTube's carved a pretty good niche. It's becoming part of the vernacular by this point. It'll be around for a bit longer, I think.
Hemlock's Moll, Honey: lol cat lookie that cat googling that yahoo
Elayne: No no, leave the weed wacker! Okay, just leave the weed.
SirTweenalot: Have to try it for a while and see if there's a difference LL.
Hemlock Stones: but theres a legal action hanging over it now
SirTweenalot: lol E
Dexter Fong: Googling a cat named Jeeves
Mark Time: if anyone is going to wack some weed it'd better be me...
cease: ill have to post something to youtube eventually
Hemlock's Moll, Honey: i will join you, mark
llanwydd: yeah I ask jeeves sometimes
Dexter Fong: Stones: There's legal action overhanging everybody..it's just that we can't always see it
SirTweenalot: Gonna hop the border and get some of that Yukon Blue, eh Mark?
Hemlock Stones: fair point Dex
Hemlock's Moll, Honey: sword of damnnocleese
Mark Time: join with a joint and disjoint and pass the joint
Dexter Fong: Sword of that damned John Cleese
llanwydd: I once asked jeeves "what is reality" and he came up with a lot of stuff on virtual reality
El Diablo Yamamoto does not partake of the EVIL marihuana
klokwkHOTdog: what's really hanging over You Tube is burn rate. They only got $10M and their bandwidth bill grows exponentially; don't think their ad rev. keeps track
llanwydd: makes sense. that's reality to him
Dexter Fong: Yam: Braggin' or complainin'
klokwkHOTdog: colorless green ideas sleep furiously
Dexter Fong: ROY G BIV
SirTweenalot: What pars _do_ you take, Yam?
Mark Time: panama red...panama red...steal your woman...then he'll steal your head....
Hemlock Stones: yes wondered about that Klok theres a lot of stuff there and i spent a happy hour watching Laurie Anderson and Spitting Image
El Diablo Yamamoto: Actually none, rilly
Dexter Fong: Every Good Boy Does Fine
llanwydd: I also asked jeeves why does the porridge bird lay his egg in the air and got a firesign reference
SirTweenalot: I stick to Lone Star. TX laws are very unfriendly to the noble weed.
Merlyn: I might be back later tonight, everything seems to be working OK so far on the new server
Dexter Fong: What was the reference, llan?
cease: ive seen far too little spiting image
cease: we got a bit of it in canada for awhile
Elayne: Sure does, Brian - g'night!
Dexter Fong: Where's Catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood steps up to Dexter Fong and mumbles "Someone mention my name?"
llanwydd: don't remember. long time ago, dex
Dexter Fong: OK Brian, ten four here and charlie one=fifity also
Hemlock's Moll, Honey: catherwood, please reset your watch
||||||||| Catherwood says "It's 10:32 PM, precisely!"
Merlyn: bye
||||||||| At 10:32 PM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Merlyn!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
SirTweenalot: Later magic man...
Hemlock's Moll, Honey: it is correct time
Dexter Fong: Catherwood, your a genius
||||||||| Catherwood rushes over to Dexter Fong and says "My ears are burning..."
Hemlock's Moll, Honey: bye merlyn
llanwydd: catherwood's right on the dot this week
||||||||| Catherwood rushes over to llanwydd and mumbles "Did you need me?"
Dexter Fong: So are your pants Catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood rushes up to Dexter Fong and mumbles "Typing my name just to rile me, eh?"
Elayne: Wouldn't dream of it, Catherwood.
||||||||| Catherwood walks over to Elayne and says "Did you want me?"
Dexter Fong: Really Riled, Catherwood?
||||||||| Catherwood rushes up to Dexter Fong and yells "Stop typing gibberish, Dexter Fong!"
cease: merl
SirTweenalot: Got rid of those nasty time bandits, obviously.
Dexter Fong: Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers, Catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood steps over to Dexter Fong and mumbles "Stop typing gibberish, Dexter Fong!"
SirTweenalot: The life of Riledly...
Dexter Fong: Gibberish, Catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood walks alongside Dexter Fong and inquires "Something I can help with?"
llanwydd: get me a toasted almond, catherwood?
||||||||| Catherwood gets llanwydd a toasted almond.
cease: is robin getting lots of work, el?
llanwydd: where would we be without our gentleman's gentleman?
Dexter Fong: Get me a poached peanut, catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood gets Dexter Fong a poached peanut.
Elayne: Cat, he inked five pages in a day and a half, his editor is very happy. :)
cease: great to hear
Dexter Fong: llan: We wouldn't know what to wear for dinner
Elayne: He has enough to be getting on with for a couple weeks, then he's going to see about his pencilling.
SirTweenalot: What does he write E?
Elayne: It's fairly unheard of in the industry to ink that fast. The average for most people is about a page per day.
Elayne: Tween, he doesn't write, he draws.
Elayne: He *can* write, but he doesn't make a living from it.
cease: did the UK trip result in any work?
SirTweenalot: Ah...
||||||||| At 10:35 PM, Hemlock's Moll, Honey vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
||||||||| Hemlock's Moll, Honey tiptoes in around 10:35 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last night's "unpleasant incident."
SirTweenalot: They're dropping like flys...
Dexter Fong: Honey!!, You're not home!!
Hemlock Stones: wb Honey
llanwydd: she must have been a door knocker
Elayne: Oh no, the UK trip resulted in Robin being able to communicate better with his Dad, and that was the main objective.
Dexter Fong: Oh! Honey, your back
klokwkHOTdog: Honey, what's with the zizzing and dripping?
Hemlock's Moll, Honey: i am wandering around lost
SirTweenalot: The Moll's back from her dig.
cease: any objective is a good objective
Hemlock's Moll, Honey wanders off in a confused state
Hemlock Stones: she must have got a shock from the tropical fishes
Dexter Fong reckons since all states are now confused, we're left in puzzlement
SirTweenalot: I thought TX was the confused state...
klokwkHOTdog: I thought she was in New Mexico...
llanwydd: vermont's a confused state
cease: he's lucky his dad is still someone able to be communicated with
llanwydd: you beat me to it tween
SirTweenalot: Y should see what they did to the map of our voting districts.
klokwkHOTdog: vermont isn't a state, it's now a People's Republic...
llanwydd: great minds think alike
Mark Time: ending tape ifty-two.....and wishing all a great evening and week...
Elayne: Bye MT!
Dexter Fong: Happy Landings, Mark
Elayne: I think I'll be cutting out as well. Loads of blog reading to do.
klokwkHOTdog: nite Mark
SirTweenalot: Bye Mark...
||||||||| Mark Time departs at 10:38 PM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
cease: mark mark mark
||||||||| Elayne leaves to catch the 10:38 PM train to Elmertown.
llanwydd: happy landings...MARK
SirTweenalot: Be takin' 'er easy...
Hemlock Stones: bye Mark
Dexter Fong: Read those loads, blog those reads
llanwydd: everyone's beating me to the punch tonight
klokwkHOTdog: sheesh, gotta be fast. these folks stomp off without time for proper good-byes if you're not blued to the schreen
Dexter Fong slips a stiff left hand through llan's guard
klokwkHOTdog: maybe time to rush get another bier
llanwydd: lol
SirTweenalot: Yam and Mud look to be next at the reaper's sythe.
klokwkHOTdog: you get a little drunk...
llanwydd: funeral bier?
Dexter Fong calls llan's mother a terrorist and avoids his inept head but
||||||||| It's 10:40 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| El Diablo Yamamoto - dead from the common cold
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
klokwkHOTdog: no actually it's Coors
cease: another bier? shoes for the dead
SirTweenalot: That stuff'll kill ya...
llanwydd: yam's got to be the first ever to die of the common cold
klokwkHOTdog: local liquor store made mistake pricing 12-packs and I got 'em for $7.35 ea.
Dexter Fong: llan: IN history today
cease: i guess it wasnt so common
SirTweenalot: You give your money to Adolph's politics? Good tasting beer though...
||||||||| Mudhead is kicked out just as the clock strikes 10:41 PM.
SirTweenalot: Ah, that's a very good reason indeed Klok.
llanwydd: I thought adolph vanished mysteriously like a door knocker
Dexter Fong: It seems as though the reaper has little patience
SirTweenalot: The reaper is busy this evening.
klokwkHOTdog: better than Budweiser; their teamsters picketed the liquor store and it later burned
SirTweenalot: Ouch. Not good Klok.
Dexter Fong: therefore I will put up the (I'm away) sign while I go for a refill
||||||||| El Diablo Yamamoto bounds in at 10:42 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
SirTweenalot: Still pro-union here, though. Not many unions in TX however.
SirTweenalot: Yam is risen!
klokwkHOTdog watches Dex give the secret sign of awayness as he departs
llanwydd: I'm pro-onion
cease: how about a union for the unemployed?
SirTweenalot: Not a bad idea, Cat lol
llanwydd: just don't eat the green part
klokwkHOTdog: fine until the stores start burning down, Tweeny
SirTweenalot: Jim Hightower's big time into the AFL-CIO.
klokwkHOTdog: I am helping them by putting their employer out of business by not buying any Bud stuff
cease: is dex refilling his parking lot?
SirTweenalot: Yeah, Klok... no excuse for that mondo BS.
klokwkHOTdog: even after they went back to work
cease: are they sponsoring his radio show, tween?
cease: i used to listen to his 2 minutes spots online
klokwkHOTdog: in that equation, Coors comes out over Bud, although once this lot is done, it's back to Modelo, which is a woman-owned business
SirTweenalot: I believe they are one of the sponsors. he talk up the unions in general. A true Populist.
klokwkHOTdog: or was. Dunno much about the Gambrino outfit in TX that imports it, though
cease: a beer for women. but men like it too
SirTweenalot: His 2 minute spots are usually very good, Cat.
klokwkHOTdog: not many women drink beer and fewer still drink Negra Modelo
llanwydd: beer isn't usually marketed to women
cease: i used to go to his website and listen. should start doing so again
Dexter Fong: (I'm back)
cease: that was quick, dex
Dexter Fong: The secret sign of returning
SirTweenalot: Didn't know that about Modelo. Corona's my favorite. Just a bit too pricey. Nothing like a good Corona Extra w/lime.
klokwkHOTdog: although bizarre imagery in NYT travel section this week about trekking in Kyrgystan and bikini-clad muslim women guzzling beer by the lakeshore...
cease: it takes me longer to piss than for you to park your car
Dexter Fong: Cat: Just pour vodka into a glass, add frifgie water...drink and repeat
klokwkHOTdog: Modelo makes Corona
SirTweenalot: They sure do market women in the beer commercials, though ;-)
cease: lol
SirTweenalot: lol Dex
Dexter Fong: Cat: Didn't park, just got a refill
cease: sangria's the srongest thing i drink
klokwkHOTdog: too expensive for me for a light lager; Negra Modelo almost needs a fork
SirTweenalot: Yep. Cerveceria Modelo
cease: there are some fantastic belgian beers
Dexter Fong: Cat: In our next get together, we'll rememdy that
cease: msut rember names
llanwydd: I don't drink much these days but when I do I prefer dry burgundy
Hemlock Stones: at last, something positive about Belgium (makea a note in his book )
SirTweenalot: Gonna get Cat to eat the worm, Dex?
Dexter Fong: You siad it Cat
cease: i like drinking in quantiyt and that means very low alcohol percentage
SirTweenalot: lol Stones
llanwydd: if there is anything I can't stand it's sugary dessert wine
klokwkHOTdog: ...or a high enough alcohol percentage that you don't remember
cease: duchesse de bourgogne, i think
cease: belgian beer at liquor store next to my parents new place
SirTweenalot: lol Klok
llanwydd: like port....ecchh
cease: tastes about as good as a beverage is gonna taste
SirTweenalot: port has no authority
cease: i never liked port tili went to portugal.
cease: its REalluy Good there
klokwkHOTdog sticks to beer; sips appreciatively at wine, but just doesn't 'get' it
Dexter Fong: Hard to port and stay sober
cease: our hotel gave us a caraffe every day. amazingly good
||||||||| It's 10:50 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| El Diablo Yamamoto - dead from The Plague
||||||||| Hemlock's Moll, Honey - dead from The Plague
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
SirTweenalot: The reaper is merciless this evening...
SirTweenalot: Hard to starboard and more port
cease: if anyone ever needs a reccomendation for a hotel in lisbon, i'm your cat
Dexter Fong: Hemlock, Honey keeps dying..over and over....can't you do something?
llanwydd: you've done a lot of traveling, haven't you, cat?
klokwkHOTdog: in mixed company, wine is always the better choice
cease: a fair amount recently, llan.

Dexter Fong: In a winos company, mixed drinks are the best choice

llanwydd: I'd like to but I need to come into a bigger cash flow
Hemlock Stones: i think she is watching The Fast Show Dexter
llanwydd: then again don't we all
Dexter Fong: Fast Show Dexter...Don't know that one, Stones
SirTweenalot: Right arm, LL :-)
klokwkHOTdog: well let me state it differently -- chicks don't like it when all there is at a party is beer
Dexter Fong: Is that like when I flashed a kindiegarten class?
Hemlock Stones: dont be pedantic Dexter, insert your own commas
SirTweenalot: Depends on the chick ;-)
cease: wow, that takes me back to university days, klok
SirTweenalot: lol Dex
Dexter Fong: Depends on the party
llanwydd: that's right. women prefer wine
SirTweenalot: the party of the first part
cease: candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker?
Dexter Fong: winos prefer song...singers prefer women...it all goes together
llanwydd: sweeter wine than I can usually stand
klokwkHOTdog: Dorthy Parker was one of the exceptions
Dexter Fong: Charlie's wife?
llanwydd: how so, klok?
klokwkHOTdog: also, don't expect to find fine wine in a lesbian bar...
SirTweenalot: LOL Klok!
Dexter Fong: I'd rather find fine lesbians in a wine bar
Hemlock Stones: you get some fine whining in a lesbian bar though klok
klokwkHOTdog: well, drinking the other guys at The Algonquin under the table, I suppose
llanwydd: I see
cease: i thikn she was usually under the table with them
Dexter Fong: klok: when she was under the table, she wasn't just drinking ;=))
SirTweenalot: Or a leather bar, Klok.
klokwkHOTdog: that too, Cat
klokwkHOTdog: she could hold her own...or anyone else's
SirTweenalot: Ah, we cross into crudeland...

||||||||| Catherwood enters with principalpoop close behind, mumbles something about disrupting his 10:56 PM tree-stunting plans, and hurries off to the anteroom.
SirTweenalot: lol Dex But, I thought I was in Turkey!

principalpoop: the voice of bambi
Dexter Fong: klok brought the silence upon us
llanwydd: did that go over anone's head? you remember turkish taffy, don't you?
SirTweenalot: We've been talking about Dorothy Parker, P.
llanwydd: I haven't seen it in years but I used to like it
klokwkHOTdog: Hemlock -- it's right up there with Jafastan
principalpoop: it was me, blame me, kick me, slap me
SirTweenalot: sorry, no grok Chavs
Dexter Fong: I heard it go over, thought it was a Hexbolah rocket
llanwydd: LOL
principalpoop: not jacob chavitz?
klokwkHOTdog: Tweeny -- feed it to Wikipedia and you will understand
Dexter Fong: Jacob Chavits is well centered
SirTweenalot: They're putting the Hexbola virus in rockets now...

klokwkHOTdog: talk about unions...
llanwydd: I stopped eating taffy and caramel after I lost a filling in a sugar daddy
principalpoop: chavit up yours
Dexter Fong: talk about rap muysic
Hemlock Stones: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav
llanwydd: I'm afraid of that kind of stuff now
klokwkHOTdog: Keyser Sose is the looming presence in The Usual Suspects
Dexter Fong: llan: Remember Ju-Jubes they suck the filling right outta yer head
llanwydd: chacob chavits?
SirTweenalot: Ah, kinda like the old Mod slang.
principalpoop: carob
klokwkHOTdog: and then you can look up jafa...
Hemlock Stones: i suppose a close approximation on your side of the pond might be Trailer Trash
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
llanwydd: yeah I'm afraid of those too, dex
principalpoop: jafa is arabic java
SirTweenalot: Jafa the Hut?
klokwkHOTdog: not quite -- aren't we talking the likes of David Beckam, too?
Dexter Fong: klok: I got the Keyser reference, but not Stones chavs reference..perhaps the brand name of some kind of requisitte t t t t t
Hemlock Stones: you can take the man out of the chav but not the chav out of the man !
principalpoop: wait wait, I live in a trailer house, you blimy bastard
llanwydd: catherwood, can you tell us what time it is in shangri-la?
||||||||| Catherwood says "It's 11:02 PM, exactly!"
Dexter Fong: Poop:Hope it's at least a double wide
cease: its la la time
SirTweenalot: Yeah, who you callin' Trailer?
klokwkHOTdog: Dex -- read The Register more and you'll be exposed (without having to actually ride on the subway with them; NYC is bad enuff already in that regard...)
principalpoop: yes it is, but I am triple wide now
Hemlock Stones: not everyone in a trailer is trash PP but it can help
principalpoop: I lost a tooth in a sugar daddy
Dexter Fong: Klok: Ah you small burg people always throwing pebbles at the tall building you can never reach
llanwydd: you too, princep?
principalpoop: povich and springer are having an auction for me
klokwkHOTdog: Dex -- you know Encyclopedia Britannica is more or less doomed when you read the Wiki entry on Keyser Sose...
SirTweenalot: I've been doing broadcasts from my Airstream since before the beginning...
cease: but im sure he compensated for it, poop
llanwydd: I lost a filling in a sugar daddy when I was in england. they have them there too
principalpoop: yes he did, a fine sugar daddy
Dexter Fong: Tween: Is that you Airstream paked upon that beautiful Travel Queen?
SirTweenalot: The Onion's got a great spoof on Wikipedia: http://click.theonion.com/c.html?s=6jy,lr1w,7kb,31oh,h5bh,e5hx,ba0v
SirTweenalot: Right in the middle of the Blue Moss trailer park.
klokwkHOTdog: "Well I found him in Pennsacola / In a trailer by the shore / He said if you've come to take the car away / I don't have it any more / I don't have it any more "
Dexter Fong: Klok does a lovely rendition of the Repo Man's Blues
klokwkHOTdog: I usually riff Rob on the CNI chat about that on Sats. He's in Florida, but in CST due to panhandle effect
principalpoop: appalachacola
llanwydd: catherwood, can you tell us the time in middle earth?
||||||||| Catherwood says "It's 11:06 PM"
SirTweenalot: The aliens are parked right next door in the next trailer!
klokwkHOTdog: live
SirTweenalot: Appaloosa - what a great Gino Vannelli tune...
llanwydd: it's the same time everywhere
klokwkHOTdog: if you can call that living
Dexter Fong: Tween: Probe them for some scientific information
principalpoop: tell me about chavs, I love animal movies
klokwkHOTdog always remembers the trailer park in Ruthless People
cease: that is ridiculously funny
Hemlock Stones: i wish it was llanwydd but its after 4 am here
SirTweenalot: Tweeny sings - 'Cause there's bugger-all here on Earth...
llanwydd: I wonder where ruth is
Dexter Fong always remembers the ruthless people in the trailor park
cease: the onion wikipedia thing
klokwkHOTdog: yeah, they typically purge all the Ruths. Some Biblical thing
cease: even the babes?
principalpoop has forgotten all the names except danny devito from that movie
SirTweenalot: It is a really good send-up, Cat :-)
Dexter Fong: Here Ruth, eat your exlax
klokwkHOTdog: you have to watch out for trailer parks; often they are bizarre religious cults, not communities of random people
klokwkHOTdog: Bette Midler
cease: i have rarley consulted it, but at least ossman found some humour in it
klokwkHOTdog: the girl who played supergirl
principalpoop: define bizarre
llanwydd: well, I must expire for the night. see you all in about 150 hours
Dexter Fong: define random
principalpoop: supergirl is a lesbo?
Dexter Fong: Night llan
klokwkHOTdog: nite llan!
cease: llan
Hemlock Stones: ok llan take care see you next time same place
SirTweenalot: Sleep well, LL...
principalpoop: good hibernation llan
Dexter Fong: Poop: All lesbos are supergirls
klokwkHOTdog: dunno, poop
principalpoop: sure they are but some girl played with supergirl hehe
klokwkHOTdog: helen slater
Dexter Fong: Christian's wife?
klokwkHOTdog: unlikely
SirTweenalot: helen christian slater - she's damned
principalpoop: helen slater than who?
Dexter Fong: Sister?
klokwkHOTdog: only if she does
Dexter Fong: Mother?
Dexter Fong: Sister?
klokwkHOTdog: by now
Dexter Fong: Mother? (slap)
principalpoop: no, not that show fong
Dexter Fong: Hey Poop, take it easy..it's just Lesbo Town
cease: is that where nicholson's nose went
principalpoop: oops not lets bowl town?
klokwkHOTdog: Spouse Robert Watzke (1990 - present) 1 child -- yeah, "mother"
SirTweenalot: lol Dex
cease: come. sit on the face of a refined. man
Dexter Fong: Thanks, but I'd rather stand
SirTweenalot: Would they do that, Cat?
Dexter Fong: ..on the face of a refined women
principalpoop: watzke chaving about?
SirTweenalot: more likely, Dex
Dexter Fong: And in goal for the russian hockey team, Chav WATZKE
Dexter Fong: He insists on all caps for his last name
principalpoop: if you knew watzke, like I knew watzke
principalpoop: ahh he is russian
SirTweenalot: All here familiar with the movie Aviator about Howard Hughes? Fine flick, if I may be a judge.
Dexter Fong: he power company is raising the rates on watzke's
Hemlock Stones: i still laugh when i read what the chavettes said when they were asked how fathered thier kids by the Child support Agency
SirTweenalot: Talk about a guy with a few problems...
Hemlock Stones: should read who not how
Dexter Fong: Tween: Yes, familiar..and enjoyed it very much especially the scene when he goes to congress in sticks it in the senators face
principalpoop: wipe the keyboard after you say that tween
SirTweenalot: What's the quote, Stones?
principalpoop: I have not seen it
SirTweenalot: You bet, Dex.
Hemlock Stones: I am unsure as to the identity of the father of my baby, after all when you eat a can of beans you can't be sure which one made you fart.
cease: ill have to rent that dvd
klokwkHOTdog: Our non-UK readership will have to bear with us for a moment while we direct you towards enlightenment in the form of splendid online resource www.chavscum.co.uk - a "user's guide to Britain's new ruling class". Yes indeed, here is everything you ever wanted to know about Chavs
klokwkHOTdog: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2004/10/06/chavscum/
SirTweenalot: lol Stones. real sophisticated bunch, eh?
Dexter Fong: 'recommends Altman's Prarie Home Companion
Hemlock Stones: actual quotes from stolen government claim forms
cease: will rent that too
cease: i wanna see the new pkdick flick
cease: its not in a conveninet theatre
Hemlock Stones: From the dates it seems that my daughter was conceived at Euro-Disney; maybe it really is the Magic Kingdom.
SirTweenalot: I've heard it's very good, Dex. Wasn't sure it would translate well.
klokwkHOTdog: tweeny -- yeah; Blanchett got all the raves for her Hepburn, but Beckensdale did pretty darn good Ava Gardner
Hemlock Stones: Peter Smith is the father of child A. If you do catch up with him, can you ask him what he did with my AC/DC CDs?
Dexter Fong: Tween: Altman's films are always of interest IMHO
cease: yes tween that is a bizarre concept
SirTweenalot: An immaculate conception, Sontes?
cease: garriosn' voice is like a firesing instruemnt
SirTweenalot: Absolutely, Klok.
principalpoop: so, which can of beans was it?
SirTweenalot: Big Altman fan.
cease: its good for summoning images in your mind, not given to you visually
Dexter Fong: Sontes? Who let the Mexican in?
SirTweenalot: Stones
Hemlock Stones: cannot tell you the name of child A's dad as he informs me that to do so would blow his cover and that would have cataclysmic implications for
SirTweenalot: A British Mexican
klokwkHOTdog: and Stefani is not too shabby as Harlow, either, although brief part
||||||||| It's 11:20 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| llanwydd - dead from the yaws
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
principalpoop: get him, I'll call ICE
cease: what Are all these mexicans doing here?
cease: the fox trot?
Hemlock Stones: the British economy. I am torn between doing right by you and right by the country. Please advise.
klokwkHOTdog: cat -- a lot of Americans are saying just that
Dexter Fong: Cat: There here for the big Air Show
SirTweenalot: Good actors all around. Brent Spiner from Star Trek (Data) as the head of McDonald Douglas.
Dexter Fong: I thought it was McDonald, Ronald
klokwkHOTdog: Baldwin's Juan Tripp too far over the top for me
principalpoop: no job skills, cannot speak english, they are taking jobs away from all our unskilled, illiterate americans
Dexter Fong: Klok: You'
SirTweenalot: Maybe Tripp was over the top.
Dexter Fong: you're right, they didn't have polar flights in those days
cease: id like to see spiner do something that wasnt a riff on star trek character
SirTweenalot: You mean the folks in the White House , P?
cease: i enjoyed the next generation most of al lthe sat treks series
klokwkHOTdog: still, Scorsese tried hard but it never really came all together for me. I really like the Biography bits in the DVD kit better than the movie
cease: but it paled next to b5
Dexter Fong: Cat: For me, it was Deep Space Nine
principalpoop: oops, the poor unskilled, illiterate americans
Dexter Fong: but Bab 5 was the best
cease: i liked the relgion and the baseball in that, dex
klokwkHOTdog: for one thing DiCaprio is too short. Hughes was something like 6'6" and only 150 lb, so DiCaprio looks short and fat
SirTweenalot: Me too Cat. Thought NG was the best of the series.
cease: but i liked them all, except hte last one. coldt watch it at all
Hemlock Stones: ok i have to call it a day now folks but see you all again next week i hope
Dexter Fong: klok: You have to use your imagination
SirTweenalot: That was mentioned by critics, Klok, but I still think he did a fine job.
cease: Fumiyo really got me into star trek.
cease: tween
principalpoop: night night stones
Dexter Fong: Ta very much, Hemlock
SirTweenalot: Happy motoring, Stones...
Hemlock Stones: take care all, bye for now
principalpoop: cherrio old chum :D
Hemlock Stones: good night and good morning
cease: stones
klokwkHOTdog: I liked some of NexGen, but it was kind of uneven. DSN had long arcs and some really good characters that they developed well. It kept trying to run off the rails, but they managed to keep it all together
Dexter Fong: 'cause you may not be able to buy for tommorow
klokwkHOTdog: nite Stones!
cease: i agrtee about dsn, klok
klokwkHOTdog: the DSN "Roswell" episode was kind of contrived, but simply ROFL
SirTweenalot: Hey, I'll watch any of it. Very few bad ST episodes.
cease: i found it a little cloying at times though
Dexter Fong sing, I want a little cloy...that I can call my own...."
klokwkHOTdog: those things are meat grinders to crank out scripts for while they're running
cease: its hard to say anything new or interesting about religion but at least ds9 tried
SirTweenalot: I'll bet Klok. Hard to make every episode live up to the standard.
klokwkHOTdog: you really need to do the Fawlty Towers / Ab Fab approach of getting a full set of scripts, then shoot the whole lot and move on. Do a second or third set if the thing is popular
Dexter Fong: Klok: They are indded..and unfortunately, too often..the network carrying them gets scared and they have to bail out before the arc is fully competed
Dexter Fong: completed
cease: b5 was written for 4, but ran 5
cease: even a show of that quality doesnt always conform to those situations
klokwkHOTdog: Strac very nearly killed himself doing that thing
Dexter Fong: Cat: i thought it was written for 5 but had to speed up the last yuear????
Dexter Fong: four
cease: it showed
klokwkHOTdog: just doing the writing and production. adding the casting and funding difficulties really made things awful
cease: the husband of one of my actgors for Box of Time was an AD on that show
principalpoop fascinated by all the inside baseball tv discussion, arcs and things
cease: a world the firesing would never come to know
cease: although i think they wanted to
Dexter Fong: I have watched *too* many interesting (for me) series that started off great but didn't get ratings and either just disappeared or got finished up quick and dirty
klokwkHOTdog: FST has their own arcs
principalpoop: sure they do
cease: i ahvne seen that many, dex
SirTweenalot: do they have trolls as well?
cease: V$5 was one
cease: that one about the photographer who lostr his identity was another
klokwkHOTdog: tweeny -- yes, but they're called "suits" in the business
SirTweenalot: lol Klok
cease: nowhere man? i forget
principalpoop: that was john travolta
Dexter Fong: Tween: They trol the well, that's how they catch them...and under bridges once in awhile, Lloyd Bridges that is
cease: VR 5 was china beach meets Good SF but, dont know whatr happned
SirTweenalot: The Lloyd Bridges of Madison County
cease: a clone of daryl hannah, whatever her name was
principalpoop: daryl was the name of the ai kid
klokwkHOTdog: the last word on that stuff, IMO, was Altman's The Player which is well, well worth watching
SirTweenalot: Is AI a pretty good movie?
principalpoop: with the tall guy from laverne and shirley
cease: i should watch it againk klok
principalpoop: I have not seen that
Dexter Fong: CBS station here in NYC used to get these Canadian SERIES>>>VERY INTERESTING SOME OF THEM<< Dexter Fong: Poop: Iggy or scratchy?
klokwkHOTdog: Poop -- it's funny, I hope the DVD has director's commentary, as there's all kinda inside business jokes in that movie
Dexter Fong: Well!! I certainly didn't intend any of that!!
principalpoop: neither of those names rings a bell, he was the gay friend of the british girl who told folks to go home
klokwkHOTdog: opens with an eleven minute tracking shot, moving in and out of the studio dick going on and on about Orson Welles' tracking shots....went clear over my head
cease: is the series called VERy Intersting Some Of Them?
cease: i think i would remember that
Dexter Fong: Klok/Poop? Altman's The Player is an extraordinary movie, even by Altman's standards
cease: ive seen it klok. but i will watch again
cease: mash is a fave
principalpoop: i was more fascinated by all the celebritiies than watching the story
klokwkHOTdog: Truman Capote pitching a sequel to The Graduate. He lined up everyone in the biz to do cameos
Dexter Fong: Just saw, last part of Nashville last night..Another great Altman movie
principalpoop: supposedly a new tv show about making a tv show is supposed to be good
Dexter Fong: If you haven't guessed by now, I really really like Robert Altman's films
SirTweenalot: Well, I'm off to catch a midnight snack. Don't forget the Jim & Bambi show on CNI Saturday (about 7pm EST) if you're into tech news. FST after the show also. Happy trails all...
||||||||| At 11:35 PM, SirTweenalot runs out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
principalpoop: thanks tween night
Dexter Fong: Snack down, Tweeny
klokwkHOTdog: Tweeny -- AI is logically consistent and watchable, but it's been Spielburg-ized. It's faint echo of Supertoys Last All Year Long
klokwkHOTdog: nite Tween
klokwkHOTdog: Poop -- I will wait for the "making of" that one to come out
principalpoop: hehe
Dexter Fong thinks if I could type Italic, I'd add :But a girl is only good for a [inser time period]
klokwkHOTdog: yeah, well, time for me to pumpkin, too. I ain't had dinner, and it is calling me from where it's trapped in the 'fridge
principalpoop: bon ap klok
klokwkHOTdog: Dex -- just use the HTML codes. See the "?" link at the lower right to learn how to pull the trick and others
Dexter Fong: Klok: psst! Pass the word..big fridgie break tonight
klokwkHOTdog: good night everyone!
principalpoop: I need to watch tv and movies more, references are dropping like flies near me
principalpoop: if it moves, cook it first
klokwkHOTdog: poop -- you can always do it later, when you can't do other things
Dexter Fong: an' the spiders and bees is libin' in your car
klokwkHOTdog: i'm going to call in some israeli F-16s to soften the ingredients up, first.
klokwkHOTdog: OK, outta here
principalpoop: could you please state that in the form of a question? tank you
||||||||| At 11:39 PM, klokwkHOTdog vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
||||||||| It's 11:40 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Hemlock Stones - dead from pneumonia
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| At 11:40 PM, cease hurries out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
Dexter Fong: Ah vie gesind, klok
principalpoop: the plot thins
Dexter Fong: but the gruel world thickens
principalpoop: kiss me you fool
principalpoop: so you have electricity
Dexter Fong lightly slaps poops face and say "NOt here, you fool"
principalpoop: ahh, knows what I like, I like that in a fong
Dexter Fong: "Here, in the laboratorium, you can''t see me here
principalpoop: what about catherwood?
||||||||| Catherwood strides over to principalpoop and mumbles "Something I can help with?"
Dexter Fong: "THs is where we keep all the Door K-Knockers"
principalpoop: I'll handle this, cool, leave a couple of bombers on the sidebar
Dexter Fong: "and some of the "i's"
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 11:43 PM and Charles Throat waltzes out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
principalpoop: why your muff is blue fong
principalpoop: ahh CT
Dexter Fong: How about I park a couple of missle cruisers in your Olympic pool
Charles Throat: Nancy! Nancy! I'm back, it's a success!
Charles Throat: hello I missed the party huh
principalpoop: who are you old man, and what have you done with my husband?
Dexter Fong: Oh! Charles.....you finally sold that internet stock
Charles Throat: you arent going to believe this, but...
principalpoop: I'll believe anything
Dexter Fong: I believe for every drop of rain, a flower grows
Charles Throat: I typed that BEFORE the bot said that!
Dexter Fong: What bot said what?
Charles Throat: huh? Who are you?
Dexter Fong: I'm me and you
principalpoop: ewwwww scary
Dexter Fong: re're me too
Charles Throat: And what have you doe with my hatband?
Charles Throat: brb
principalpoop: like the chat can read your mind or something
Dexter Fong: Welcome to the Hall of mirros, we can see ourselves as they never were K-NIckie
Dexter Fong: That's my husbands hatband, it was in our barrels
principalpoop: I knew you would say that nancy, I still love you
Dexter Fong: ..along with the high-topped shoes and yeller striped pants
principalpoop: I am such a tool
Dexter Fong: Auger? Is that you Brian
principalpoop: old yeller, how is he?
Dexter Fong: poop: He's on the roof
Charles Throat: doesn't auger well for the company

Charles Throat: can't just be any tequila, has tobe CHEAP tequila
Dexter Fong: ah, a German mixup code...PEACH tequila
principalpoop: cleans the whole system out, right on down the line
Charles Throat: Ilive on the border so I think it was only picked a few hours ago
Dexter Fong: That thin white line
principalpoop: I have had peach schnops
||||||||| Dexter Fong is forcibly ejected just as the clock strikes 11:51 PM.
Charles Throat: my space bar is drunk
||||||||| "11:51 PM? 11:51 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Dexter Fong should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Dexter Fong enters and sits on the couch.
Dexter Fong: Dumb
principalpoop: wb fong
principalpoop: and dumber
Dexter Fong: DUh
principalpoop: no duh
Dexter Fong: when looking for Nino always click on "exit"
principalpoop: space bar, with wooookies?
||||||||| Around 11:52 PM, Dexter Fong walks off into the sunset...
||||||||| Dexter Fong waltzes in at 11:52 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
Dexter Fong: Kinda like that
principalpoop: hey, that is my knocker
Charles Throat: oops, company, gotta go, put on your steel hat, everyone...
principalpoop: lock your wigs
Dexter Fong: Somebody stole my steel hat and the band it came in with

principalpoop: I will toodle too

||||||||| It's 12:00 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Charles Throat - dead from pneumonia

||||||||| Catherwood enters, and announces to all and sundry "It's 5:32 AM, time to change the log file and clean out unused rooms; please exit the chat room for a minute or two. Thank you for your patience."
