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 28, 2006 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in and pipes up "Presenting 'Firebroiled', just granted probation at 8:16 AM", then leaves hurriedly.
Firebroiled: $24.95! $38.07! $743! $70.84! Three dollars and sixty-two cents! Seven days a week, seven days a year, five days a week, 365 days a month! . . .
Firebroiled: By the way, we also have FM. Right here.
Firebroiled: You haven’t heard nothing yet. I’ve got right here in this car, for your trans-Atlantic driving pleasure, this fully hallicrafted Sea-Master short-wave radio in this non-returnable, non-disposable zinc-lined carrying case!
||||||||| Firebroiled rushes off, saying "8:18 AM? Mark Time is almost on! Where's a radio?"
||||||||| Catherwood stomps in at 7:14 PM, dragging TerrapinTweeny by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this web surfer?"
TerrapinTweeny: Who's movie _is_ this, anyway?
||||||||| At 7:14 PM, TerrapinTweeny vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
||||||||| TerrapinTweeny sashays in at 9:00 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
TerrapinTweeny: Once, there was this great turtle...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, September 28, 2006 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Merlyn close behind, grumbles something about disrupting his 9:01 PM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the sitting room.
||||||||| Mudhead enters at 9:01 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and dashes off to the Chapeau Manger.
TerrapinTweeny: Good eeeevning....
Mudhead: Hiya Tweenster
Merlyn: Hey mud, I won't be saying much at the moment...
Mudhead: Merlyn lurkin?
TerrapinTweeny: So, are Clem and Bambi back in Virginialand?

Mudhead: ,hangs his head
TerrapinTweeny: Supposedly back from MI tonight.
Mudhead: suuweeet
Mudhead: hows TX Tween?
Mudhead: dry, flat, big?
TerrapinTweeny: Gorgeous weather. We set records for high temps the last couple of months (not below 100 for the highs for weeks). 80's & sunny :-)
TerrapinTweeny: You could make 5 States out of TX. In fact, it was part of the original Constitution. Very hilly and green here.
TerrapinTweeny: Austin is _very_ different from the rest of TX. More like SF or Berkeley in parts.
TerrapinTweeny: Kinky Friedman is running for Governor, and he's in second place :-)
Mudhead: I had a friend who was living in Austin, shes since moved
TerrapinTweeny: Where was better?
Mudhead: I saw some pics of a stream near her place, they used to play and swim there
Mudhead: Portland oregon, she couldnt find work in TX
TerrapinTweeny: Did they pee right into the stream lol...
TerrapinTweeny: Yeah, the NW has some attraction.
TerrapinTweeny: The next couple of elections are going to be telling.
TerrapinTweeny: Well, I became a Walmart shopper today. Their prices are good and their quality isn't awful. More importantly, they have a superstore within bicycle range.
||||||||| stephenfosterkane enters at 9:11 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and scurries off to the Chapeau Manger.
Mudhead: yah, ive been dreading going there
TerrapinTweeny: Kane!
stephenfosterkane: 'lo Merlyn, Tween, Mud
stephenfosterkane: woof!
stephenfosterkane: noseblood!
TerrapinTweeny: I may be buying goods from Chinese slave labor camps, but at least I won't be using so much Saudi oil lol.
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 9:12 PM and doctec steps out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
Mudhead: hiya Stevie
doctec: hi gang
Mudhead: DOCTEC!
doctec: or should i say ... "gang"
TerrapinTweeny: The Doctor is in...

stephenfosterkane: howdy DT
Merlyn: I'm playing world of warcraft too
||||||||| Catherwood enters with H. Stones close behind, grumbles something about disrupting his 9:13 PM tree-stunting plans, and dashes off to the anteroom.
stephenfosterkane: welcome, invalid!
TerrapinTweeny: Hail and well met, sir...
H. Stones: ty
||||||||| LiliLamont bounds in at 9:14 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
TerrapinTweeny: SFK is breaking the President!
stephenfosterkane: whoo-ho, hey Lili
H. Stones: much lurking and not much typing i fear due to continued pain
stephenfosterkane: just sit back, watch the screen and let our warm regards wash over you , Stones!
TerrapinTweeny: How's the bone structure, Stones? Things getting connected again?
TerrapinTweeny: Hey Lili...
LiliLamont: Hi, Tweeny! I got your mail and I really appreciated it. Molly Ivins is one of my favorite writers. I had no idea she had been through treatment three times.
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and announces "Presenting 'doctec', just granted probation at 9:15 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
doctec: there we go...
H. Stones: two clean breaks, badly bruised muscle and damaged tndons, apart from that, all hunky dory
stephenfosterkane: Jim and Fran must be on the road, finally, since no CNI tonite
TerrapinTweeny: Lurk as you wish, Britman...
TerrapinTweeny: Yeah Lili, Molly's been through the wringer...
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies llanwydd inside, makes a note of the time (9:16 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
llanwydd: TGIT
LiliLamont: Anyway, it was very kind of you to send the package and I thank you for it.
doctec: lili wants to play scrablle (and we're watching grey's anatomy) so we won't be staying long... lili wanted to thank tweent tho for the cds he sent ... which i see she's already done
stephenfosterkane: hail King Llan!
doctec: tweeny not tweent (sorry, too much vodka :-) )
Mudhead: hiya all
LiliLamont: Molly still has her fabulous smile and sense of humor, and if there is anything that will get you through cancer, it's that.
TerrapinTweeny: What Lili's talking about: http://www.austinwomanmagazine.com/
TerrapinTweeny: Evenin' LL...
doctec: lili has both - in spades!
llanwydd: I auditioned for Antigone on Sunday but didn't get a part
llanwydd: I read for the part of Creon
H. Stones: sorry bout that llan
TerrapinTweeny: What with Ann Richards gone, Molly's still a symbol of a true Texan.
stephenfosterkane: awwww
LiliLamont: Where was this, LL?
stephenfosterkane: you'd be a great Creon
TerrapinTweeny: Better luck next time LL :-(
llanwydd: pendragon theatre, saranac lake, NY
doctec: keep trying llan
TerrapinTweeny: brb
||||||||| Catherwood enters with principalpoop close behind, mumbles something about disrupting his 9:18 PM tree-stunting plans, and scurries off to the sitting room.
llanwydd: I toured with them in the Diary of Anne Frank last year
H. Stones: yes, llan these types need to be reminded what real talent is
llanwydd: lol
principalpoop: i was ready to stunt those trees too
Mudhead: poop!
llanwydd: hey princ
principalpoop: i have been to saranac lake
H. Stones: hi PP
principalpoop: hi all
doctec: i always wanted to be a stunt tree
llanwydd: hi some
LiliLamont: Well, W is definitely not a symbol of a true Texan. After seeing Musharrif with Jon Stewart the other night, I would love to see Bush on the Daily Show. We'd get the deer in the headlights look, the stammerring, and the lack of knowledge that people are laughing at him, and not with him.
principalpoop: here is the link i could not find last week llan plays pls files in wmp
principalpoop: http://tools.veloc-it.com/tabid/58/grm2id/7/Default.aspx
LiliLamont: I'd love to see that.
principalpoop: hi stones, how are you? how is everybody?
LiliLamont: That's stammering. (Too much vodka fucks with my spelling.)
stephenfosterkane: you'd probably make a great Ahab, too -- you could press a company to do Moby Dick, Rehearsed , which is a rare treat for theatergoers
H. Stones: recovering slowly thanks PP
principalpoop: wodka makes me womit
Mudhead: silly wabbit
TerrapinTweeny: Lili, Bush can't hold a news conference without going ballastic. Imagine Jon Stewart LOL
llanwydd: thanks princ. I'll bookmark it
principalpoop: get a new collar bone, made out of alumininium
TerrapinTweeny: Hey P...
doctec: pp: you have to stay away from the cheap rotgut - there are some vodkas out there that are very clean smooth and non-vomit-induing
LiliLamont: I'm going to exit, because I have a responsibility to a forum that I must attend to. I'll leave you all in Doc's capable hands.
principalpoop: hi tween
TerrapinTweeny: Aluminium and magnauesium...
stephenfosterkane: Personally, I think it would be a waste of a good Daily Show
||||||||| Around 9:22 PM, LiliLamont walks off into the sunset...
TerrapinTweeny: Take care Lili....
principalpoop: all clear liquors gave me hangovers, I will stay with scotch
H. Stones: bye Li
TerrapinTweeny: lol Klok
principalpoop: brrrrr your hands are cold doc
stephenfosterkane: we need to cut off these guys' air supply. news reports should be read verbatim as received, with only a file photo of the prez or whoever else in the white house
principalpoop: and watch that little finger please lol
stephenfosterkane: nite lili
TerrapinTweeny: Air Supply? Wasn't that a bad elevator music band from the early 80's?
doctec: and i must depart as well - to hang with lili and play scrabble (she kicks my ass routinely, but she loves the game so much, i play along anyway even though there's no hope of touching her word-wise)
stephenfosterkane: nite DT
Merlyn: ok see ya doc
doctec: she's the word girl, you know...
TerrapinTweeny: Best Doc...
H. Stones: TTFN Doctec
Mudhead: well, juss so long as u get to touch her
llanwydd: oh, yes. I used to be a dj and I had to play air supply every day
llanwydd: it was a news/oldies station
principalpoop: indigo doc jewel oops
stephenfosterkane: Tween -- no, from the old Sea Hunt series, where Mike Nelson was always cutting someone's scuba hoses
llanwydd: nite doc
TerrapinTweeny: Grid bless your ears, LL...
H. Stones: you probably needed an air supply after that llan
doctec: ttfn ttyl say hi to cat if he manages to show up (he's should be in toronto, or may already be heading back to vancouver)
doctec: nytol (wheeeeeeeeeeee.......................
stephenfosterkane: will do DT
||||||||| Around 9:25 PM, doctec walks off into the sunset...
TerrapinTweeny: Mmmm, Klok's going to fly the Subjugator any day now lol. Columbine RI style...
stephenfosterkane: BTW, Ken (Dr. Headphones) said to say 'hi' to all
principalpoop: oops, the good hands dropped us
stephenfosterkane: dang Allstate
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Dexterr Fong close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 9:26 PM tree-stunting plans, and rushes off to the vestibule.
TerrapinTweeny: Say hi back, Klok.
llanwydd: hey dex!
stephenfosterkane: hiya ash
Dexterr Fong: Whah!!!No CNI!!!!!!!!!
TerrapinTweeny: Yo, 18-wheelman...
H. Stones: hi Dexterrrrrrrr
stephenfosterkane: they are in transit, Dex
TerrapinTweeny: Hare Fong...
TerrapinTweeny: Jim & Fran must still be in transition. Looong camping trip.
principalpoop: this is not firesign? he was talking about walking on a boat as it crossed the international date line...
principalpoop: fooled me
stephenfosterkane: standard fare that CNI plays the rest of the time
TerrapinTweeny: Reruns on CNI.
llanwydd: I'll pay the standard fare
H. Stones: Leo the tech guy is good for tips
principalpoop: satellite talk
Dexterr Fong: CNI = Canadian Natural Indigestion
llanwydd: better than reruns on CNN
principalpoop: I like leo
principalpoop: and the other guy too
Dexterr Fong: Brought to you by Lichen...Reindeers love it, so will you
llanwydd: yeah Natural Indigestion will give you the reruns
principalpoop: robert lichen
TerrapinTweeny: The favorite food of CN?
Dexterr Fong: That and trans-fat fries
H. Stones: carefully controolled news factlets are the food of CNN
stephenfosterkane: poop -- leo has lots of other guys, and a gal, too. go to www.twit.tv to see the whole stable
stephenfosterkane: made fresh daily
Dexterr Fong: In our nuclear ovens
principalpoop: yes there was a crowd, but on tech tv usually him and the other starred
stephenfosterkane: Patrick Norton
llanwydd: I haven't clicked on that link. I am incredulous.
principalpoop: no, that is him
llanwydd: I don't believe there is a twit.tv
H. Stones: Sideshow Bob ?
stephenfosterkane: he's on the TWiT podcasts most weeks, now and does Digital Life TV for Ziff
Dexterr Fong: This Week in Technology, llan..Not Pythonesque
TerrapinTweeny: There's an old saying in Tennessee Ñ I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee Ñ that says, fool me once, shame on Ñ shame on you. Fool me Ñ you can't get fooled again. - GW Bush
llanwydd: that's a funny web address though
TerrapinTweeny: Actually, yes, LL
stephenfosterkane: llan -- the link works
principalpoop: cool link
llanwydd: I am incredulous
TerrapinTweeny: back in a bit, folks...
stephenfosterkane: TV is a domain that you can get, owned by Tuvalu or some Pacific Island, but they license out the domains for about twice or 3x what others like .com cost
principalpoop: why don't they just declare martial law and stop trying to call it other names
stephenfosterkane: it's like printing up 300 postage stamps and making 3 upside down
stephenfosterkane: (that is a significant revenue source for these itty-bitty countries)
llanwydd: sounds like Monster Island Channel 3
principalpoop: tuvalu hardware stores sell domains too?
Dexterr Fong: lol poop
H. Stones: any of you chaps checked this out for entertainment purposes ?
H. Stones: http://www.filmstripinternational.com/
llanwydd: taped an old interview with Alfred Hatchplot on TCM a little while ago
Mudhead: only the participating ones
stephenfosterkane: poop -- nope, contractors sell them for them, only the money goes back to Tuvalu. Most areas there don't even have internet.
stephenfosterkane: I'm not sure you can even call there
llanwydd: Now you're incredulous
stephenfosterkane: Probably just on INMARSAT at $5/min.
Dexterr Fong: Klok: YOu can call there but they're all out rigging
Mudhead: Seriously, if you got to Tuvalu, would you really want a phone?
Dexterr Fong: Just a charge card so I could get some power tools
llanwydd: Tuvalu is a hardware store isn't it?
stephenfosterkane: llan -- .tv is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the island nation of Tuvalu. Except for reserved names like .com.tv, .net.tv, .org.tv and others, any person in the world can register a .tv domain for a fee, much of the income from which goes to the government and people of Tuvalu. The domain name is popular (and thus economically valuable) due to it being an abbreviation of the word 'television' (other similar ccTLDs are .fm, .am, .cd and .dj). The domain is currently operated by The .tv Corporation, a VeriSign company (formerly owned by Idealab).
stephenfosterkane: There has been some controversy as to who should be allowed to reserve .tv domain names. A significant percentage of websites with .tv URLs are pornographic or otherwise sexually explicit. While this has raised significant revenue for the small nation, it has also created conflict. Much of Tuvalu's population is conservative Christian, and some feel that revenue from those sources is immoral.
stephenfosterkane: The Tuvalu government Web site is implemented as a wiki using the TikiWiki software.
llanwydd: No I guess that's truvalue
Dexterr Fong: YOu aced it llan
||||||||| Bightrethighrehighre enters at 9:37 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and scurries off to the Hat Pack Annex.
principalpoop: ann hole

stephenfosterkane: heck, I put on my kicking shoes about 10 minutes ago in anticipation
Mudhead: kicks Big
principalpoop kicks big

Dexterr Fong kicks back
principalpoop: checkers still around?
H. Stones: did you also play the Brain Game PP ?
Dexterr Fong: No checkers are now square
H. Stones: http://www.imgag.com/product/full/ap/3067907/graphic1.swf
stephenfosterkane: they smothered him under Pat's good Republican cloth coat
Bightrethighrehighre: oral- ley, vatos- sapp- nin?....(oops-s-s-sssss, wrong comedy!)
llanwydd: checkers?
principalpoop: yes I did
TerrapinTweeny: Anyone for a game of Go?
H. Stones: its funny, no matter how many brains i give him it doesnt get any better
stephenfosterkane: llan -- a scandal Nixon-as-VP was in in the '50s. Checkers was their dog
Dexterr Fong: Read Steady ....
principalpoop: nixon's dog llan
principalpoop: go fish
llanwydd: I thought of that but I didn't think you would wonder if that checkers was still around
TerrapinTweeny: The GD tribute band, P?
Bightrethighrehighre: ....well....I'M not a crook....!!....
principalpoop: he might have been stuffed, like trigger
llanwydd: although he could have been for a long time. nixon said he was going to keep him.
Dexterr Fong: ..and mounted on top of Dale Evans
stephenfosterkane: The "Checkers speech" was given by Richard Nixon on September 23, 1952, when he was the Republican candidate for the Vice Presidency. The speech, broadcast nationwide from the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood,[1] was one of the first political uses of television to appeal directly to the populace.
stephenfosterkane: Nixon, having been accused of accepting $18,000 in illegal campaign contributions, gave a live address to the nation in which he revealed the results of an independent audit that was conducted on his finances, exonerating him of any malfeasance. The money, he asserted, did not go to him for personal use, nor did it count as income, but rather as reimbursement for expenses. He followed with a complete financial history of his personal assets, finances, and debts, including his mortgages, life insurance, and loans, all of which had the effect of painting him as living a rather austere lifestyle. He denied that his wife Pat had a mink coat, instead she wore a "respectable Republican cloth coat."
stephenfosterkane: The one contribution he admitted receiving was from a Texas traveling salesman named Lou Carrol who gave his family a cocker spaniel, which his daughter named "Checkers." [2] Nixon admitted that this gift could be made into an issue by some, but maintained that he didn't care, stating "the kids, like all kids, love the dog and I just want to say this right now, that regardless of what they say about it, we're gonna keep it." Later, when asked about Nixon's peformance, some Eisenhower campaign insiders joked, "We're keeping the dog."
principalpoop: happy trails to you
TerrapinTweeny: The Lone Ranger's hoss...
Dexterr Fong: Jeeze klok
TerrapinTweeny: Who can fault a man who loves his dog?
llanwydd: It's amazing how much politicians can get away with
principalpoop: was it the 23rd? I was thinking the 24th....
llanwydd: look at ted kennedy
TerrapinTweeny: You've noticed LL LOL
Mudhead: not wanting to watch Ted
stephenfosterkane: well I remember seeing it on the 23rd, poop
TerrapinTweeny: Look at Rush Limbaugh...
stephenfosterkane: i try not to, llan
principalpoop: oki, maybe I was thinking of the day he resigned
llanwydd: limbaugh is not a politician
TerrapinTweeny: Ted did have some good things to say about the consolidation of media.
llanwydd: entertainers get away with a lot more
stephenfosterkane: he's a big fat idiot
TerrapinTweeny: Oh?
Dexterr Fong: llan Right he's a drug addict
Mudhead: ya, but I still try not to look at him
stephenfosterkane: oh, i don't mind him talking, just looking at him
TerrapinTweeny: You mean he wasn't elected ReichsfŸrer of information?
llanwydd: when will the shittoheads wake up and smell the coffee
Dexterr Fong: llan: How on god's green earth can you compare the eveil that politicians do with the stu[pidity of entertainers
H. Stones: Cocain Decisions Dexter ?
llanwydd: I don't think I did dex
stephenfosterkane: Dex -- you use an alignment matrix and then scale, usually
TerrapinTweeny: Gas is about $.10 cheaper at the local Walmart. Not soon, LL ;-)
stephenfosterkane: same as with apples and oranges...
principalpoop: everybody has foibles
TerrapinTweeny: Rush is obviously working for S.C.A.L.E.
Mudhead: heres mine
stephenfosterkane: i had mine removed when i was a kid
principalpoop: i love the word foibles
llanwydd: it was not a comparison
H. Stones: i listened to him Tween and he seems to be just a convenient mouthpiece
Dexterr Fong: llan: The use of the word "more" is a comparison
llanwydd: by the way dex, my name begins with two Ls
principalpoop: compare and contrast the suggestion that cleopatra was a slut
stephenfosterkane: entertainers don't start wars
stephenfosterkane: on what reference frame, poop?
H. Stones: unless they put Mohamed on stage klok
stephenfosterkane: two l's are for OFFICERS, llan
principalpoop: if you think she was framed, say so
stephenfosterkane: that's not starting a war, that's starting a hate crime
Dexterr Fong: So!!
Mudhead: They canceled the opera in Munich cuz of fear of terrorit attacks tho
TerrapinTweeny: The local Walmart is basically their own mall. If I didn't know how little they paid their employees or manufacturers, I'd be impressed with their effeciency. A McDonalds, a bank, an optomotrist, a hair salon and Grid knows what elase all under one roof.
H. Stones: last year a london theater was trashed for similar reasons
stephenfosterkane: although Ali G sure has Kazachstan all wound up with his new movie

TerrapinTweeny: In _additon_ to the superstore.

stephenfosterkane: we have a Wal-Mart here and it was nice at the start, but now it's a dump
TerrapinTweeny: Did I forget to mention car care...
principalpoop: there is one near me, I refuse to use it, unless it is 3 in the morning and I must replace my modem
TerrapinTweeny: Yeah, Mud. Muslims out of Afghanistan!
Mudhead: I refuse to go there, i try to contuinue to favor local merchants
stephenfosterkane: many Afgans are really Sufi
TerrapinTweeny: Point made, Klok ;-)
Dexterr Fong: Sufi-cient unto the day is the evilness therof
H. Stones: Afghan Walmart closes early most days
TerrapinTweeny: lol Stones
stephenfosterkane: how's the local high street doing? ;-)
llanwydd: many afghans are good for throw rugs
TerrapinTweeny: The Baghdad Walmart. Now _that's_ an airport checkpoint...
TerrapinTweeny: My toupee«s comping off...
H. Stones: do they have reverse Greeters, Tween ?
Dexterr Fong: Incoming!!!! Clean up on ailes 1 2 3 4 5 6 through 30 and 42 and 43

TerrapinTweeny: Quite, Dex lol
llanwydd: they'll build a Wal-Mart in Bagdad when hell freezes over

H. Stones: Al Mart
Dexterr Fong: Well with the warming trned that possibility is rapidly receding
principalpoop: oops tony blakely
TerrapinTweeny: Mr. Bush thinks things are getting better when 50 people are showing up dead daily in the streets of Baghdad with signs of torture
TerrapinTweeny: Hailburton will build it, LL. It'll be a fort ...

H. Stones: but will i be able to eat Kosher in the restaurant ?

TerrapinTweeny: See, Stones, that's progress!
Dexterr Fong: Hem: Yes you can eat kosher, but you have to kill the Jews yourself
principalpoop: infidel, how is cuba doing anyway?
TerrapinTweeny: Taint funny, Dex :-(
Dexterr Fong: Cuba is gooding
H. Stones: thats a bummer, i normally have this little guy from Hezbollah to do for me

TerrapinTweeny: A million unexploded cluster bombs in S Lebanon? Oh, joy...
llanwydd: cast aspirin?
principalpoop: you can cast asparagus
Dexterr Fong grins as he realizes he finally went a little too far for Tweeny
H. Stones: especially those anti personnel aspersions
||||||||| 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 stickman falls out at 9:58 PM.
llanwydd: don't cast your pills before swamis
H. Stones: hi stick

llanwydd: beat me to it dex
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
principalpoop: ahh now down to the nitty gritty, a dirt band

Dexterr Fong: llan, lad...sit down..sit down and let me tell you about Lodestones
stephenfosterkane: ZBS Foundation, a small non-profit audio production company, was founded in 1970 by a grant from Robert E. Durance as a working commune operating from a donated plantation in Upper New York State. The commune's purpose was to raise consciousness through media, specifically full-cast audio dramas.
stephenfosterkane: Eventually, the commune disintegrated and the organization became the outlet for the sonic oeuvre of writer/producer Thomas Lopez. His dramatic programs, notably Ruby the Galactic Gumshoe and Travels with Jack Flanders, are noted for their meticulous production values and New Age mysticism. Lopez has won numerous awards including the Prix Italia, and his work enjoys a cult following.
stephenfosterkane: ZBS did a 1984-85 radio series, The Cabinet of Dr. Fritz, later releasing some shows in the series on cassettes and CDs.
stephenfosterkane: According to an interview with Thomas Lopez[1], ZBS actually stands for "Zero Bull Shit".
