A Firesign Chat


||||||||| Catherwood re-enters the Waiting Room and explains "This is the main discussion room which is logged each night."
||||||||| Catherwood announces, "The time is 5:33 AM - I now declare Thursday's chat log for August 10, 2006 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and pipes up "Announcing 'Firebroiled', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 7:58 AM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Firebroiled: Come on, Mr. and Mrs. Too-Busy-To-Be-A-Homecoming-Queen!
Get in step with the voices of the feet already dead
in the service of their Country!
||||||||| "7:59 AM? I'm late!" exclaims Firebroiled, who then dashes out through the french doors and down through the brambles.
||||||||| Catherwood enters with jackie close behind, grumbles something about disrupting his 9:56 AM tree-stunting plans, and scurries off to the sitting room.
jackie: hello
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| It's 10:10 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| jackie - dead from jaundice
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Outside, the 7:32 PM bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving Tweeny coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Tweeny: Who's movie _is_ this anyway?
||||||||| 7:32 PM -- Tweeny left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 8:37 PM, dragging Hemlock Stones by one leg and asks "Can anyone vouch for this Yahoo ™?"
||||||||| Gusts of wind blow in from outside and the thumpa-thumpa-thumpa of helicopter blades is heard as Happy Panditt's chopper lands on the lawn and AmadeusTweenzart disembarks at 8:48 PM.
AmadeusTweenzart: don't you like my work Señor Solieri?
AmadeusTweenzart: You're early Stones (or late, as it were)
||||||||| It's 8:50 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Hemlock Stones - dead from jaundice
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
AmadeusTweenzart: Jaundice it is!
||||||||| AmadeusTweenzart hurries out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's AmadeusTweenzart?! It's 8:50 PM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
||||||||| Catherwood enters with ah,clem close behind, mumbles something about disrupting his 8:52 PM tree-stunting plans, and rushes off to the sitting room.
||||||||| Catherwood ushers llanwydd inside, makes a note of the time (8:58 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
llanwydd: I'll have a pizza to go and no anchovies
llanwydd: anybody here?
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, August 10, 2006 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"

||||||||| Catherwood escorts Merlyn in through the front door at 9:08 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.

Bambi: the server is down :-( Been trying to get the attention of the server home base but no go

El Diablo Yamamoto: Reinstall it I guess
klokwkdog: notice CNI server is broken for the time being they are trying to get it restarted
Hemlock Stones: have you tried the Warmart Dll department Mud ?
Merlyn: also see http://digg.com/videos_people/Girl_takes_pic_of_herself_every_day_for_three_years
Mudhead: Ive placed a copy in the Mircfolder
Mudhead: still does it
Elayne: Ugh, can't keep splitting attention. Back to bloggies.

Rotonoto: ahhh, the 'real' story- t'anks klok!
klokwkdog: nite E
cease: bye el
Mudhead: bye el
klokwkdog: Roto -- full details see chat log early on
AmadeusTweenzart: That's gotta hurt...
Rotonoto: ok...
Hemlock Stones: someone put that in You Tube as well Merlyn but since my latest Microsoft update it wont play vids and wont even play AOL vids though i am a subscriber, i think i must be crazy
Mudhead: not if theyre lubed up right
AmadeusTweenzart: Ready for a Linux box a' la JL yet, Stones?
El Diablo Yamamoto: I'm running SUSE. No worries
Hemlock Stones: am beginning to think along those lines yes Tween
Hemlock Stones: but i dont want to be more of a geek than i am already though
Hemlock Stones: and as the song says, "Every OS sucks!"
AmadeusTweenzart: Linux isn't there yet, but it's getting close to real competition from what I've read about software availability.
Rotonoto: it's inevitable- geek or M$ cash cow
El Diablo Yamamoto is not a geek. Just got tired of Windoze
cease: more greeks, less geeks
El Diablo Yamamoto: SUSE is damn close, I manage to do all right with it
AmadeusTweenzart: Well, there's the rub. Buy and old Mac that'll run OS X. A couple hundred $US. No worries.
Rotonoto: even Roto going to graduate from 'blasst from the past' 98SE to Linux 'some day soon'
Rotonoto: yeah, geeks don't serve baklava
Hemlock Stones: i got along fine with 98SE and XP has not really been an improvement
Rotonoto: you are correct, Mr. Stones
AmadeusTweenzart: When they can do real MIDI/audio programs on Linux, I might be interested.
Mudhead: Vistas gonna flop just for that reason
AmadeusTweenzart: Mmmmmm baklava.....
Rotonoto: well, that's why you keep a windoze machine or two- but offline
Mudhead: now i want some
Hemlock Stones: thats what concerns me too Tween, i just installed a whole bunch of synths and programs and Linux cannot yet handle them at all
Rotonoto: Mmmmm- MIDI!
El Diablo Yamamoto: I have a few things I use under windoze off line
AmadeusTweenzart: Vista's gonna look like a fish on the Great Salt Lake when Apple releases Leopard (OS X 10.5)
Hemlock Stones: its gonna need a salt lake to fit it in
Mudhead: what'd that look like, i dun understand
AmadeusTweenzart: Thar be the rub, Stones. Of course you can boot XP on an Intel Mac.
||||||||| It's 10:20 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| llanwydd - dead from the common cold
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Rotonoto: will be amazed if Vista flops- enough willing 'victims' out there to keep the game going a while...
klokwkdog: was listening to the latest Security Now about Vista's TCP/IP stack. They re-did if. From scratch.
Hemlock Stones: i hear you can now run OS X on a PC too
klokwkdog: remember the Star Trek episode where some nut case in the crew turns the engines off? Completely off?
AmadeusTweenzart: Of course, Roto. It's a Windows world.
klokwkdog: that's the world of hurt MS is in now with Vista's stack
Hemlock Stones: if i can rip off Gates and Jobbs at the same time, i will be a happy bunny

El Diablo Yamamoto: Thanx, I'll stick w/not ready for primetime here
Hemlock Stones: Hi PP

AmadeusTweenzart: Class is now in session...
cease: poop
Hemlock Stones: lol
Rotonoto: what is reality?!
Mudhead: /me hides in the tree

Mudhead: they wont let ya bring licquor on board now, hows a 15 year old supposed to get a drink?
Bunnyboy: THE ARISTO-CRAT will finally be digital.
Rotonoto: zip lock baggies in jacket pocket?
Hemlock Stones: the next step is to not let you take people on a plane, that will cure the problem
principalpoop: smooth and moisten yourself before you get to the security area next time
Bunnyboy: "Meadows? Meadows?"

Mudhead: and as you get off the plane they let you keep the paper suit
AmadeusTweenzart: I thought Cobain made the hole...
Mudhead: A Hole
Bunnyboy: Randy Quaid's character in THE LAST DETAIL is also named Meadows. I always thought it would be fun to splice together Mel Blanc and Jack Nicholson from ARISTO-CRAT and DETAIL.
Hemlock Stones: yes Mud but only if you put it in a see through bag
Bunnyboy: "Meadows?" "Meadows!" "Meadows?" "Meadows! Come back here, goddammit!"

Bunnyboy: The Clash opened (ehh!) and the pre-opening act...T-Bone Burnett, with guest Mick Ronson.
principalpoop: WSU, what smatter you?
AmadeusTweenzart: that would be loud

Hemlock Stones: Rats deserting the sinking shit eh Tween

AmadeusTweenzart: And fill, my heart with joy...
principalpoop: ahh bunnyboy, the innocence of the naive
klokwkdog: where the heck is everyone tonite?

Merlyn: A friend of mine and I decided Neil Innes probably didn't mind putting up credits of "Innes & Lennon & McCartney"
Merlyn: but the songs aren't the same, I think the ruling is wrong.
Hemlock Stones: i think Macca has always been a self parody not to say a travesty
cease: anyone read Paperback Writer, parody of bealtes?

Hemlock Stones: lol klok
cease: nat lamp's sunday newspaper paroyd just as funny

principalpoop: i was thinking of andy griffin, not a hardcore psycho inner city village drunk

Bunnyboy: The moment I grin about from ZIMMERMAN is the childhood Bob, at a family gathering. Everyone is singing HAPPY BIRTHDAY to some family member, and kid Bob is sitting, folding his arms: "Listen. I get PAID to sing!"
Hemlock Stones: what they didnt like was the band was very loud and it over powered an accoustic venue and on top of that most of the audience were folk music fans and not ready for the Band
cease: i saw his interview on some right wing show from the 80s
