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 September 07, 2006 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and snorts derisively "Announcing 'Firebroiled', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 8:31 AM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Firebroiled: Animals without backbones hid from each other, or fell down. Clamasaurs and Oysterettes appeared as appetitizers. Then came the sponges which sucked up about ten percent of all life. Hundreds of years later, in the Late Devouring Period, fish became obnoxious. Trailerbites, Chiggerbites and Mosquitoes collided aimlessly in the dense gas. Finally, tiny edible plants sprang up in row, giving birth to generations of insecticides and other small, dying creatures. Thank you.
||||||||| At 8:31 AM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Firebroiled!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 5:47 PM and xtasy waltzes out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
||||||||| It's 6:00 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| xtasy - dead from the yaws
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies Boney inside, makes a note of the time (7:02 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Boney: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/paul-krassner/ Paul Krassner blog in the Huff Post.
||||||||| Boney departs at 7:03 PM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
||||||||| Catherwood escorts llanwydd into the room, accepts a wooden nickel as a gratuity, mutters something about 8:57 PM, then departs.
llanwydd: good evening dear friends
llanwydd: now come on. I don't believe there's no one here
llanwydd: according to catherwood, the time is 8:57 (approximately)
||||||||| Catherwood says "It's exactly 8:59 PM!"
||||||||| 8:59 PM: stephenfosterkane jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past hour!"
stephenfosterkane: it's now 9:01
stephenfosterkane: PM
llanwydd: catherwood knows his time, doesn't he
||||||||| Catherwood says "It's 9:00 PM, exactly!"
stephenfosterkane: he's gotten better of late
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, September 07, 2006 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
||||||||| Catherwood walks up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'ah,clem', just granted probation at 9:01 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
||||||||| Gusts of wind blow in from outside and the thumpa-thumpa-thumpa of helicopter blades is heard as Happy Panditt's chopper lands on the lawn and Dexter Fong disembarks at 9:01 PM.
llanwydd: how are you, stephenfosterkane and ahclem?
llanwydd: good to see you again dex!
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 9:01 PM and ATweenyADay waltzes out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern time'
||||||||| Catherwood ushers cease inside, makes a note of the time (9:02 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
ATweenyADay: keeps the Fascists away...
llanwydd: howdy tween!

||||||||| 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 H. Stones disembarks at 9:03 PM.
||||||||| Bubba's Brain tiptoes in around 9:03 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last night's "unpleasant incident."
H. Stones: Good Evening all
Bubba's Brain: hey all

ATweenyADay: The Bangles in your living room?

Bubba's Brain: Not a Broad Band, broadband.
||||||||| "9:05 PM? 9:05 PM!!" says Catherwood, "stickman should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as stickman enters and sits in front of the fireplace.
stephenfosterkane: he's feeling up now that Tony's on the way out. slowly, ever so slowly, kicking and screaming "I was right..."
ATweenyADay: Sticky...
ah,clem: hi all!
stephenfosterkane: hey, stick
llanwydd: she takes a step and makes a penny off every loafer in town
ATweenyADay: Ah, Clem...
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Bambi close behind, mumbles something about disrupting his 9:05 PM tree-stunting plans, and hurries off to the sitting room.
cease: the broads have a band?
H. Stones: evening Clem
Bambi: howdy!
stickman: Greetings

ATweenyADay: They're not using Mexican telecom experts yet?
stephenfosterkane: you could make it more agonizing by calling separately for each of the 3 days... ;-)
Bubba's Brain: Cat -- got the Red Shift CDs in from Doc -- will process paperwork soon, and settle up.
Dexter Fong: lol
cease: indeed

Dexter Fong: settle down
H. Stones
Bambi: Cat just emailed you the email addys
cease: just spoke with doc this aft. he's supposed to come here tonight
cease: good bamb
||||||||| Catherwood walks up and intones "Presenting 'Merlyn', just granted probation at 9:11 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
Bubba's Brain: Sorry for the repeat... my browser froze, then did that.
stephenfosterkane: Stick -- I had Cox screw up my email for 2 months a couple years back
ATweenyADay: Probably one of the few upsides of being on ATT. Very few.
Bambi: hi Merlyn
Dexter Fong: Hi Merlyn
ATweenyADay: Yo Merl...
stephenfosterkane: that's worst than just flat out losing service, in a way
llanwydd: welcome, merlyn
stephenfosterkane: howdy M
Dexter Fong: Bubba: What?
stephenfosterkane: browser caught the new stutter virus?
Merlyn: hullo
stickman: Awful! I would freak out.
Bubba's Brain: Repeated teh same post. Repeated teh same post.
stephenfosterkane: oh, I had some choice conversations with Cox...
Dexter Fong: Oh1! I thought it was Studder Virus
ATweenyADay: The Funkadelic virus.
cease: i assume this isnt the eykiw cox
stephenfosterkane: Parliament has banned that, Tween
H. Stones: wwwwww whats that Dexter ?
ATweenyADay: Did the transfer you to Holeflaffer?
stephenfosterkane: Cox Cable
Bubba's Brain: Or the Studer virus, which only happens to high end pro tape recorders.
Dexter Fong: H: huh?huh?huh?huh?huh?
stephenfosterkane: they sent my outgoing mail to Mars, Tween, and delayed incoming mail sometimes 2 weeks
stickman: Studer. That's a word/name I havn't heard in years.
ATweenyADay: LOL Bubba
Merlyn: studebaker virus?
stephenfosterkane: it's revox to me
ATweenyADay: Jeeze Klok...
Dexter Fong: ..or the Studebaker Virus which ha[pened before some of you were born
stephenfosterkane: those things are always nagra me
stephenfosterkane: it was either that or the FBI, Tween
Bubba's Brain: Bubba Trivia: I actually worked for Studer Revox in Nashville for a year, back when they had a tech department.
ATweenyADay: But have to use their proprietary nagrahyde tape.
Merlyn: it was supposed to be "Stud Baker" and appeal to donut makers
llanwydd: well, studebaker was the first thing I thought of when I read studer
Dexter Fong: lolTween
stephenfosterkane: no, the avanti appealed to donut makers
llanwydd: must be the same thing
Bambi: might want to wait to send it there till we get home though ... not sure if they are still holding our mail lol
ATweenyADay: Only if you take a sharp left turn, Merl
Dexter Fong: Merlyn: But not the donuts with a hole in them..the one's that are long as round and firm and straight
H. Stones: didnt they build the Studer Nightmare Village ?
ATweenyADay: Can a mail server explode?
stephenfosterkane: Cat -- DON'T under any circumstances send a CAKE! The Dendron PO has a small vermin problem...
Bubba's Brain: How many donut holes does it take to fill the Albert Hall.
stephenfosterkane: sure, Tweeny
Bubba's Brain: ?
stickman: I'm getting rid of all my vinyl (after digitizing, of course). Think my FST albums will sell on ebay?
ATweenyADay: Two door, studor, mordor living...
cease: i assume its seriiously rural
stephenfosterkane: but what Cox was doing was running an anti-virus scanner on incoming/outgoing email and it was a flaky virus scanner
ATweenyADay: Probably, Stick, if they're in good condition.
cease: is there any firesign news?
ATweenyADay: Especially if any of them are out of print.
H. Stones: i tried that but it only worked on the flaky virus, the rest got through easily
stickman: Flaky virus scanner? Remeinds me of a former g/f.
cease: a flaky scanner darkly?
stephenfosterkane: I'm still fretting about Fred's and Austin/Ossman's posts in the newsgroup a couple months back
llanwydd: np: shoes for industry

ATweenyADay: I hear the new selsun blue program will take care of that...
stephenfosterkane: very darkly, apparently, Cat
stickman: I still have the original "Dwarf" I bought in '70.
cease: that is fretworthy, klok
Dexter Fong: I still have my original lawn gnome I bought in 1965
cease: with the pictures in it, stick?
stephenfosterkane: it's kind of like finding out your 70 year-old mom had an affair when you were a kid, Cat
ATweenyADay: I've got Dear Friends from back then, but it _well_ worn. Same with Giant Rat & Not Insane.
stephenfosterkane: Dex -- do you still have your original lawn?
stickman: Pictures? Lemme look.
H. Stones: i still have my original vinyl but i digitiised them all

Dexter Fong: Army's dick was a joke

H. Stones: is that Arms Length, Idaho Tween ?

ATweenyADay: Are you intimating that I am, in fact, a Mr. Potatohead?
H. Stones: wrong chat again i think Dex

H. Stones: just a chip off the old block Tween
Dexter Fong: H:This isn't H.C. Earwicker.com

Bambi: (in both directions across the pond)
H. Stones: and mushy peas for the Chavs Tween

H. Stones: yes Bambi looks like the beginning of the end for the Neocons over here
Dexter Fong: Try our Potomac special, the fish may be male or female or either or both or some of each
llanwydd: I never saw the insert to HTF. what did it look like?
Bambi: and over here too Stones...
ATweenyADay: Neocon is such an appropraite term.
ATweenyADay: It was a fold-out of Panoramaland 2000.
Dexter Fong: Tween: IIRC it was kind of a diarama

H. Stones: Sad but true Stick

ATweenyADay: That's one you guys haven't played in a while, Clem (hint. hint)
stephenfosterkane: Chafee is up against a primary challenger that the national party is sure can't win, so they are biting their tongues and backing Chafee
Bubba's Brain: Damn emachines...
Dexter Fong: Stick: And the Irony is that it might have done just that
stickman: That's a song from "Fighting Clowns"
llanwydd: if they can take your name away

ATweenyADay: The new Indiana license plate is going to say "In God We Trust". some Quaker friends are quite angry.
stephenfosterkane: some really nasty ads against the poor guy running against him, a foretaste of what we're in for next month for the main election
Bubba's Brain: I hadn't heard that Tween.
ATweenyADay: Gee I'm glad I don't watch TV anymore.
H. Stones: it amazes me that anyone believes anything in an election broadcast Klok
ATweenyADay: That what me Mum says, Bubba.
stephenfosterkane: NC tried to put out a license plate that said "First in Freedom" and all the black folks put tape over that

||||||||| Catherwood leads Elayne in through the front door at 9:32 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.

cease: was a big radio guy in la in those days
Bambi: I second, 2Places
ATweenyADay: Seems to be an epidemic, Cat. A local police commander was also DWI.

ATweenyADay: And salivate when they look at your neck.

Bubba's Brain: I shouldn't multtask so much... E, interviews? do tell.
Elayne: Just starting the process, Bubba. Looking for a new job while my boss is away in Europe.
Bubba's Brain: Okay, not getting anything. Leaving and going to different browser.
||||||||| At 9:46 PM, Bubba's Brain vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
Elayne: Only have about a 6-week window but I started as soon as he left.

Elayne: Where's the mention of my Ralph Spoilsport plates on Planet Proctor? I don't see it anywhere on the site.
Bubba's Brain: Yes. It froze before I saw your answer on the plate.
cease: the only people who have the whole mushroom set are the firelads, that i know of
Elayne: Ah, well I got reimbursed, which is a tacit admission of their guilt, but no apology.
Bubba's Brain: I dont theink the site has the current one. Its in the email
Elayne: Oh, I don't get the emails any more.
ATweenyADay: Well, I would mind a few downloads, Mr. Cat person sir ;-)
Bubba's Brain: Its at the end as a coda.
Dexter Fong: E: YOU mean you actually meet people in person?
Bubba's Brain: I'll see if I can cut and paste.
Elayne: Not always Dex, my last interview was via phone.
Dexter Fong: Bubba: DOn't run with scissors
Elayne: Thanks Bubba, you'd think Phil would try to send it to me if it mentioned my name. :)

Elayne: I think Chromium Switch was better. :)
Dexter Fong: Uh Oh, Bubba's got the studly Virus
Elayne: Now see, y'all get a scoop on this, and if Doc Tech were here he'd verify it.
Bubba's Brain: oops missed aline
Elayne: The thing of it is, the original plate frame was not custom-ordered, it was a gift from Doc Tech.
Bubba's Brain: they threw my property away. That's going to be one nasty phone call I make
Elayne: So I've actually never paid for a Ralph Spoilsport plate frame at all.
Bubba's Brain: before the last line
Dexter Fong: Bubba: I tooted that line, don't worry
Bubba's Brain: Shhhh... don't tell Hundai
Elayne: I "go girl"? Cool! :)
ATweenyADay: Blowing your own horn again, eh Dex?
Dexter Fong: Tween: PLuck you magic twanger
Elayne: Can we strike that from the log, Brian? ;)
Dexter Fong: How many logs could a logstriker strike etc
ATweenyADay: Elayne used to dance in rock clubs.
Elayne: In any case, they stole my property, and I determined fair and square the worth of that property, so it doesn't matter if it was bought or a gift, they owed me for it.
ATweenyADay: My accent twangs quite a bit these days lol
Bubba's Brain: Yep.
Elayne: And I'm never getting my oil changed there again.

Elayne: Tweeny, I prefer to get it changed at my local auto shop anyway, right next to my local Citgo, so I support a country that actually gives a shit about its citizens instead of supporting a bunch of misogynist religious freaks.
ATweenyADay: Right arm E LOL
Bunnyboy: Tween: Erhm...I know who Paul Krassner is, and I like his work, but...t'weren't me, McGee!
Bubba's Brain: BRB
Bunnyboy: Ya think maybe cat?
ATweenyADay: Unify _this_...
Elayne: Although in all fairness, the Saud family probably isn't religious at all, they just use religion to cover up their misdeeds like their buddies the Bush family.

ATweenyADay: Thought it was you at the top of the chat...

cease: both krassner and his pal harry shearer have good stuff there
H. Stones: Hi Clem, thanks for the audio

Dexter Fong: Bunn7y: Cool!
stephenfosterkane: what is it, does he have Mob connections or something?
ATweenyADay: It's the Law now, Klok.
LiliLamont: Dex: He has a bunch of data on an external drive, and the drive is giving him grief. We are driving to Illinois tomorrow and I think he wants to fix his computer first.
principalpoop: hey jude, don't make it bad
ATweenyADay: Hey Jude, take a sad movie and make it badder....
LiliLamont: He spends so much time on it that I am hoping he doesn't pull an all nighter before a long drive.
Dexter Fong: Lili: What can I say =)
stephenfosterkane: there must be a whole set of Jude Law clones making movies 24/7

Dexter Fong: keep it up
ATweenyADay: The brakes aren't working properly Lili?
principalpoop: brinkley indiana
ATweenyADay: But the sun is going down!
stephenfosterkane: yeah, the moon's a-comin' up, though
principalpoop: or huntley iowa
Bunnyboy: I saw FACTOTUM, It's OK, though kind of an IKEA-palette version of skid-row dereliction.
principalpoop: rather california
stephenfosterkane: nice pre-harvest moon. full, reddish on what passes for a horizon here tonight, really top-rate show
cease: i read the book about the time Bit was born
cease: read a lot of bukowsky in those days
ATweenyADay: Indiana's on the brink, for sure. Just told everyone that the new license plate is going to say "In God We Trust".
LiliLamont: Hmmm... about 16 hours. The midway point is Sharon, PA, and he wants to show up in Illinois at 5 on Saturday. I've been a wreck lately, so he may do the majority of the driving.
ATweenyADay: The should get Bubba to make a parody cover that says "In Grid We Trust".
cease: good desciption, bun
cease: i'll rent the dvd
principalpoop: oh holy grid
cease: best of luck with that, lili
ATweenyADay: Happy trails for sure, Lili.

Bunnyboy: Lili: Have you and Doc seen AVENUE Q? Or heard the cast album?
cease: this sounds like austin at his rock god pretention best
stephenfosterkane: have an uneventful journey, Lili. I would say pleasant, but that long a drive is not going to be fun.
ATweenyADay: Only if you're a brain surgeon, P...
cease: all the best to doc's dad
ATweenyADay: Yep Cat...
principalpoop: I am not
LiliLamont: No, Bun. In fact, we haven't been in the city for quite a while. I made a couple of trips for some Learning Annex classes, but nothing for entertainment. Too broke.
cease: my mother's 3 living sisters are coming to visit her next thursday so i;'ll be late to chat
stephenfosterkane: wow, sounds like Full House, Cat
Bunnyboy: Lili: The reason I mentioned AVENUE Q is they have a happy song in there called IT SUCKS TO BE ME.
ATweenyADay: Um, you're hands will be a bit full Cat?
principalpoop: pick up any hitchhikers on the way, single men make the trip exciting
cease: its at their seniors centre, not in my house thankfully
Bunnyboy: Another highlighted number is THE INTERNET IS FOR PORN.
cease: its a 3 story, split level house and they're all ancient. who could aford the insurance?
LiliLamont: SFK: Doc spent a lot of time putting together music for the iPod for the trip, so that will help a lot. Trying to find good radio in the heartland is a losing proposition, and music helps the drive.
ATweenyADay: Well, hope it's a good family reunion :-)
cease: i thik it will be
ATweenyADay: Sounds hard to negotiate...
cease: have some home movies my paretns took in the 50s, when thier parnets were still alive
stephenfosterkane: oh, you betcha Lili
cease: 'm sure they'll enjoy seeing it
LiliLamont: Bun: I wonder if that's available online? I'd love to hear that.
principalpoop: like nicholson in it doesn't get any better than this?
ATweenyADay: Heeeeeress Johnnyyyy
LiliLamont: Tweeny: The fact that it's a family reunion with Doc's dad turning 80 is the whole point. I was supposed to go to my niece's wedding on the 16th in SF, but I had to send my regrets.
Bunnyboy: Lili: I've recently found at least a couple of online "lip-sync" performances of THE INTERNET IS FOR PORN, both on YouTube.
Bunnyboy: Geeks lip-syncing.
LiliLamont: Bun: Would you send me the links?
ATweenyADay: I'll bet it's fun for them, Cat...
stephenfosterkane: Lili, he sure deserves a prize. Certainly maximum attention
Bunnyboy: Sure. Lemme check...
LiliLamont: SFK: I think I lost you. You mean Doc?
cease: actualy my parents dontmuch care but my mothers sisters will be dleighted i;m, sure. this will be new to them and theyre very old
stephenfosterkane: Lili -- no, his dad
ATweenyADay: Yeah, I haven't seen my family in almost 10 years (Mom just turned 89). On the other hand, as WC sez, "Happiness is having a warm, loving family. In another city".

Dexter Fong: Docs not a Narzi, he's a Riefenstahl

||||||||| "10:49 PM? I'm late!" exclaims Bunnyboy, who then scurries out through the french doors and down through the bushes.
Dexter Fong: Lili: YOU said something aoubt a "bloody" Queen

Bambi: watch out for the briars Bunny ;-)
principalpoop: oops, I thought you bought a triumph SFK on the base
Dexter Fong: Cat: It sounds like it's running a bit fast
LiliLamont: Dex: Hey, I lived in England for a few years, so I know that makes the Brits nuts, referring to the bloody queen.
Dexter Fong: also sounds a little hollow
cease: a vast lack of clarity
principalpoop: my grandmother used to say bugger
cease: but i know this pretty much by heart so its no loss
Dexter Fong: Lili: As long as you're not referring to the "Virgin Princess"
cease: bettr than having a grandmother who was a bugger
principalpoop: oh that dirty bugger
LiliLamont: Poop: I did. They had a dealer for TR on base and the cars were new. I didn't buy it from an individual.
principalpoop: SFK is kane not a car
Bambi: cat, unfortunately it's the only copy of Roller Maidens we have and thankful to have it :-)

Dexter Fong: Stephen Foster is a sporty convertible

LiliLamont: OK, all, my brain is toast. I'm going to leave the rest of the conversation to Doc. Bon nuit.

Dexter Fong: klok is hungry tonight
principalpoop: they had a doper audience?
Bambi: only stuff from the pharmaceutical companies have expiry dates ... better for business that way ;-)
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
principalpoop: like sterile corn and wheat, buy more seeds from us
Dexter Fong: Bambi: Look at your milk carton or bottle
Bambi: Catherwood please pour me a toasted almond and a plate with a couple special texas burritos
||||||||| Catherwood hands Bambi a toasted almond and a plate with a couple special texas burritos.
cease: not as large as cheech and chongs, but it was certainly a calculated selling poont for them, from their earliest radio days
principalpoop: run ah, clem run
Bambi: (well actually I was referring more to the topic at hand Dex ... but you are right)
cease: dope humour of the 70s
Dexter Fong: Cat: What wasn't in those days? =)
Bambi: lol princep

ATweenyADay: It's collld in here...
cease: this predates high times and that commercilaization
Bambi: cold in Austin in September...say it isn't so!
cease: the 60s i recall was la free press, joints left in library books, etc
Dexter Fong: Cat: Certainly not today..but back then, old school style, everything was about dope
principalpoop: warm your hands on the monitor
cease: comedy albvums, dex?
Dexter Fong: Warm your monitor in my hands
ATweenyADay: Comparitively. Low 90's lol
Dexter Fong: Cat: Albums? Sorry missed the topic =)
Dexter Fong: Must be dope
Bambi: the Paranoid Broadcasting ...
cease: you would have seen live comics that i woulnt , dex but when i saw cheech and chong in 71, that was quite rare
ATweenyADay: Ah, that's OK Dex. Might want to get with Lili on that one lol
cease: i remember the johnny carson dope jokes, which were echoed on ed sullivan the rest, that "hip" ref
Dexter Fong: Cat: I think you're right, I was more focused (such as I was) on the general counter culture
cease: carlin came later
principalpoop: they made jokes about business trips on laugh-in
cease: haght ashbery was commercialized rather quickly
cease: i hear your area was aocuntrculture cetnre but i know it not
cease: berkely festered for a long time and did a lot of good
Dexter Fong: Cat: Yes it was...Krasner started his Career? in the East Village
cease: poop, im sure there was token hippy ref on laugh in, dont recall anything speciafcally
cease: but it was part of the genreal comic routine environemnt
Dexter Fong: Cat: Bippy, not hippy
Dexter Fong: You betcha
cease: that was 50s. when lenny was still a straight comedien
principalpoop: a lot of that generation must have voted for reagan and bush
cease: ihave read krassjners eloquent evocation of that era in his autobi
Dexter Fong: What generation
cease: that how i got to konw paul
ATweenyADay: I need to move to Cal and get a doctor to verify how _really_ bad my glaucoma is...
principalpoop: the hippies

ATweenyADay: lol
cease: good sound design on this
||||||||| "11:09 PM? 11:09 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Boney should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Boney enters and sits in front of the fireplace.
Dexter Fong: Tweeny...uh er Okay?
cease: hi bone
Dexter Fong: Boneman
ATweenyADay: Krassner's autobio is a good read. A nice education for us folks who weren't there...
ATweenyADay: Hey Bone...
principalpoop: your glaucoma looks bad to me tween, get some medication quick
principalpoop: hi boney
Bambi: hi Boney
ATweenyADay: NOT in TX, thrank you very much lol
ATweenyADay: 6mos in jail/$2,000 fine first offense.
Boney: Is Freditor really only 55 years old?
principalpoop: same here, I cannot chance it
Dexter Fong: Tween: Just wait till Kinky's Gov
principalpoop: ouch
principalpoop: a spring chicken
Dexter Fong: Poop: I hope you're going to vote for him

Dexter Fong: I mean Tween

principalpoop: don't trust anyone under 50
Dexter Fong: poop: SOunds about right to me
cease: giles, goat girl
ATweenyADay: ROFL P...
ATweenyADay: What a perfect Boomer attitude lol
Boney: Will Kinky win, do you think?
Dexter Fong: Boney: He's doing real good in the polls
Boney: President Kinky Friedman... It's not too soon to start thinking in those terms
ATweenyADay: It's a long shot, but it sure would be fun.
Dexter Fong: He needs a *professional* get out the vote crew though
ATweenyADay: Considering the alternatives...
ATweenyADay: lol Boney
stephenfosterkane: i think he'd be a fine governor for TX. President? Well, uh...compared to what we got, no problem, but we can do real better...
Dexter Fong: Kinky versus Ann Coulter
Bambi: data can be sliced any way they want by asking 'the right questions' in polls .. they are a sham ... besides, how many people that you know have been polled? lol
ATweenyADay: He's got some of Ventura's people. We'll see...
Boney: He's got a surplus of about thirty IQ points on that other Texas governor who became President
ATweenyADay: In a spitting contest?
Dexter Fong: Bambi : there are some reliable and honest polls...actually quite a few
cease: the pope?
stephenfosterkane: Bambi -- I got push polled today; hung up
Bambi: see, that's what I mean ... most intelligent people don't even do polls
cease: doesnt everyone have caller id?
stephenfosterkane: a push poll isn't a poll, it's a slander on the opposition
principalpoop: I can't hear the phone ring, they would talk to my 5 dollar answering machine
Dexter Fong: Bambi: The polls conducted by say Quinneapac? or major news corps are reliable and honest
cease: yes, deafness has its advantages
Dexter Fong: what?
cease: id rather communicate only by type, never talk at all
ATweenyADay: You ain't seen nothin' like the mighty Quinnepac...
Dexter Fong: Ah type cast, eh?
principalpoop: i am having trouble with cashiers though, I keep saying i must get a hearing aide
Bambi: all polls and surveys ... have any of you done any training in the marketing of polls and surveys? Unfortunately I have ... I don't believe in them.
cease: Typee, type f, type: gee whiz
Dexter Fong sings Quinnepac the Innnuit
ATweenyADay: This should be a videoconference. Can you do that from Dendron JL?
principalpoop: that is why old people are mean, it is easier to wave people off than ask them what? many times
ATweenyADay: lol
cease: my father jsut got hearing aid this week.
cease: would probably work well if he remembered to use it
ATweenyADay: Well, I'm not Innuit the polls...
Dexter Fong: Bambi: I have and I know how many ways there are to skew them, but I also know they can and often are done honestly
principalpoop: at home, with my headphones on full, I hear fine
stephenfosterkane: everyone in the US should lie, like the 3 dead trolls say
Bambi: that training in creating them was a real eye opener for me ... I can tell you.
ATweenyADay: Skewered by the polls?
cease: austin says of this, what the world would be like if evil were among us
ATweenyADay: It's all in the questions, Bam, right?
cease: in oiner notes or something
principalpoop: kabob
Dexter Fong: Bambi: Everything there is created by man can be turned to evil...the process isn't bad, it's the people who do it
ATweenyADay: If?
stephenfosterkane: the poller started asking questions about Chaffee's challenger and I realized every question was uncomplimentary. It wasn't a poll, it was slander
cease: im sure its more subtle than that, tween
ATweenyADay: When did Clinton start beating his wife?
Bambi: yep ... it's all in the questions ... you start out with real questions, and by the time they are done, you won't even recognize the question ... they reword it till they will get the answers they want.
ATweenyADay: Exactly Bambi...
Dexter Fong: Klok: YOu might not know that the Republicans are backing Chafee
stephenfosterkane: they are pouring it on via TV, too. two Republicans fighting tooth and nail while the Democrats try very hard not to distract them
Dexter Fong: Surreptisiously of course
stephenfosterkane: Dex -- Oh, I well know it. Laffey is being portrayed as evil, uncaring, and well, well past Hitler
Dexter Fong: He's past Hitler...in the final lap of the fascistista Games
ATweenyADay: I like all the "grassroots" organizations financed by corporate interests.
stephenfosterkane: Dex -- if you lived here, you wouldn't see anything "surreptitious" about it
Bambi: I hear ya Dex ... I hear ya ... but the reality is, it's done by marketing people....they already know what answers they want before you take the poll or survey ... and they make sure they get those answers if at all possible. If they don't, they didn't do their job very well...sigh...
Merlyn: well, I'm going to take off, see you next week everyone
ATweenyADay: Citizens For Resposible Energy Policy (created by the coal industry)
ATweenyADay: like that...
Dexter Fong thanks klok for working out that surrepticious word
Merlyn: CREP? close...
ATweenyADay: You did great, JL...
Bambi: night Merlyn!
ATweenyADay: Reading about Howard Hughes and his associations with CREEP. Ugly...
||||||||| At 11:26 PM, Merlyn vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
stephenfosterkane: nite M
ATweenyADay: Thanks, Merl, JL.
principalpoop: ty M have a super week
cease: austin has far too much trouble ending his pieces
cease: merl
Dexter Fong: Bambi: A long time ago I took a course with one of madison aves greatest pollster....his first rule for us was: Don't lie to your self...the second: Don't lie to your client
cease: what are you readingk tween?
Dexter Fong: Thanks mucho Clem
Bambi: thanks Clem! Great show :-)

principalpoop: thank you, keepers of the root
ATweenyADay: Howard Hughes: The Secret Life - man that was one weird dude...
stephenfosterkane: on the back of the page is a picture of Iraq, then one of the Superdome in NO
cease: he made weird people look normal
ah,clem: root is well and happy, BTW
principalpoop: the reputable pollsters lose business if they fabricate results, they try to be truthful
ATweenyADay: And he had his fingers in the attemt to assassinate Castro, and other anti-Cuba stuff.
cease: i think i read that. i know i read a bio of him long ago
principalpoop: ahh super thanks
Dexter Fong: Bambi: +) The point is that that's the ideal
Bambi: if you get a chance to stop by for the Saturday lineup on CNI Radio, we would love to see you all! http://www.cniradio.com
ATweenyADay: Gave much bribe money to both Hubert Humphrey and Nixon.
principalpoop: give me billions and I can out weird him lol
||||||||| At 11:29 PM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, ah,clem!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
Dexter Fong: Clem's been seized
Bambi: Yes, that is the ideal Dex and I would love to see that ideal used :-)
Dexter Fong: The Humph!
Bambi: oh, no ... not by Rococo! lol
cease: yes, he was a player
ATweenyADay: Bought up about 1/4 of Las Vegas. Had Donald Nixon working for him.
principalpoop: the burritos
Dexter Fong: The Burrito Bros own half of Vegas??
Dexter Fong: What about wayne Newton
cease: i guess they're flying no more
principalpoop: shattered the glass and made the lights go out and ah, clem disappeard

Dexter Fong: Props!!
principalpoop: yes wayne, and his brother Fig
ATweenyADay: Only when they fly TWA ;-)
cease: i meant in the position of power, tween
stephenfosterkane: LOL
ATweenyADay: Well, we're not talking Karma Stura here Cat...
ATweenyADay: Sutra
Bambi: I sure wish I could find a place up here and in VA that did texas style (hot) burritos with shredded beef ... making myself hungry lol
Dexter Fong: Well, can't be towed away so buy for, 'cause you may not be able to bye for later
ATweenyADay: But he sure had the Am Govt by the hips...
cease: i did read a bio of him. but it was long ago
principalpoop: ahh karmen, the ghia
cease: shredded as opposed to bground?
cease: i dont think ive had shredded
stephenfosterkane: yeah
cease: i know they have good meat in motnreal. look forward to it
ATweenyADay: I could mail you some, Bam, but Klok has warned about your post office lol
stephenfosterkane: it's hard to get stuff like that outside the infrastructure
Bambi: yeah...shredded is the best
cease: dex
Bambi: lol Tween!
stephenfosterkane: like Philly cheesesteaks. simple enough, but they just don't travel well
principalpoop: only shredded pork in NC
cease: you mean you cant get a good one outside of philly/
stephenfosterkane: well, BBQ beef in NC, but it's always ground, not shredded
Bambi: they have pulled pork in VA ;-)
cease: ive had "montreal smoked meat" here which is a kind of pastrami
ATweenyADay: If I were Hughes, I'd charter a prive jet carrying a local restaurant.
cease: but it wil be best IN montrreal
Bambi: I think that's another name for shredded in VA
cease: oddly pizza better in north van than in naples, its home
stephenfosterkane: but most of the BBQ is pit-cooked and hopefully in a pit out behind the restaurant, which is just a shack anyway
principalpoop: only waffle shop is open now, stop it
Bambi: pizza definitely better in the north than in VA lol
stephenfosterkane: i've heard that Italian pizza is NG, Cat -- it's best in the US
ATweenyADay: One of these days I's going to have to get a real cruiser again and do some travelling to let you people see me in person. The 1990 626 ain't gonna cut it lol
stephenfosterkane: it's actually been imported back to Italy, the American style, and not just chains
ATweenyADay: It's just a shack away, it's just a shack away...
stephenfosterkane: it's kind of like the popularity of Chi-Chis in...Mexico. Of all places.
Bambi: that would be great Tween :-)
ATweenyADay: That TX lottery ticket witll be coming in any day now ;-)
Bambi: lol
ATweenyADay: Ah, you choose death. Very wise.. but first, a little Chi Chi...
stephenfosterkane: pizza is pretty good in Philly-Jersey-NYC-CT. I like the New Haven pizza best, but it's a pain to wait for and the best places are crowded with locals and Yalies
principalpoop: I am hoping the bill gates trust fund folks give my email a favorable response
stephenfosterkane: Poop -- I'm working on Warren Buffett to put in a good word for me, a kind of sneaky indirect approach
principalpoop: ohhh, you found his email? give it give it
ATweenyADay: Your going to help the starving people in the Mid-Atlantic?
cease: klok, at least youre not his grandaughter
stephenfosterkane: well, I first plan to help one starving people in New England; once that's conquered...
||||||||| It's 11:40 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Boney - dead from Globner's disease
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
stephenfosterkane: i doubt she'll want for anything, Cat
cease: by virtue, klok?
principalpoop: oops, I had to give a reason?
ATweenyADay: I thought Kennebunkport had conquered New England...
stephenfosterkane: sheesh, Poop -- I hired a guy who used to work for Oxfam to write up my request. Go pro, it's your best shot
ATweenyADay: If it's a Mac Pro ;-)
principalpoop: I got to do something, a little late in the day for me to marry wealth
stephenfosterkane: too big a discontinuity in MA, Tweeny. Too big. It all reflects off and heads towards Canada and diffuses harmlessly in the fir trees of S. Quebec
principalpoop: how is nan?
ATweenyADay: They still have trees? Haliburton has been negligent.
stephenfosterkane: Poop -- don't get discouraged! That's another way. Think of all the rejected CEO wives, replaced with 18 year-old trophy gals. All they have left is taking a bite out of him in one giant divorce settlement and you'll find one who wants you to help her spend it on endless travels away from the bastard
Bambi: gonna have to say good night and have a great week! Eyes are drooping lol
Bambi be well and happy!
principalpoop: night night sweet bambi, have a super week
Bambi: you too princep :-)

principalpoop: night tween, I will toddle to, toodles
||||||||| principalpoop rushes off, saying "11:46 PM? Mark Time is almost on! Where's a radio?"
stephenfosterkane: Poop -- so?
stephenfosterkane: nite Poop
cease: poop out
ATweenyADay: You like ginseng tea, Cat?
cease: i like most teas
ATweenyADay: Great things said about green tea, of course.
stephenfosterkane: I must be off myself
cease: just saying ginseng and tea in the same sentence is probably healthy
cease: klok
stephenfosterkane: but first, Cat, you've been following This Week in Media, right? Great podcast, not too long
ATweenyADay: Shoot the dog... have a good week :-)
ATweenyADay: Huh. Have tried it before. Also the Ginseng Rush soft drink.
cease: yes i hear small chunks of alderwood smoked salmon calling me from upstairs
cease: i'll be late next week but i'll be here
stephenfosterkane: oh, Falling Stars Pop has just begun City's "Am Fenster". Great instrumental, not too much singing. Wonderful stuff
ATweenyADay: Thranks to everyone, esp JL & Bam...
||||||||| "Hey ATweenyADay!" ... ATweenyADay turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 11:49 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...
stephenfosterkane: me gone now

||||||||| It's 12:00 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Bambi - dead from dengue fever
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood walks in wearing his pyjamas, yawns, and mumbles "It's midnight here in New York city"...then he falls over and starts snoring loudly..
Dexter Fong: Night all
||||||||| It's 12:20 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Dexter Fong - dead from measles
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| 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."
