Firebroiled: Betty Jo Bialowsky! I hadn’t heard that name since college. Everyone knew her as “Nancy.” Then it all came rushing back to me like the hot kiss at the end of a wet fist! It was Pig Nite at the Ohm Mane Padme Sigma House . . .
Firebroiled: Oink-oink!!
||||||||| At 8:53 AM, Firebroiled runs out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."

Elayne: And how are you feeling?
ah,clem: not bad considering
Elayne: Just take it easy for awhile.

UnderTween: Now that's one for a bit of prior libation if I ever heard of one ;-)
Elayne: Hi Tween!
UnderTween: Hey E :-)
Elayne: I won't be here that long, in about half an hour I start my next Studio 60 live-blogging session.
cease: you and robin have to see Paprika, el
Elayne: Reading Lance Mannion's intro now. He's a pip. But he misspelled "sous-chef."
cease: is studio 60 on tonight?
Elayne: I hope so, Cat, or I'll be live-blogging dead air. :)
cease: i found west wing to be very visually interesting but studio 60 not so much
cease: the vast labyrinthine set was never as interesting as it could hafve been, as th white house was
UnderTween: What's the name of this one, clem?
UnderTween: West Wing's amazingly well done
ah,clem: 3 faces, then mayhem again

UnderTween: Didn't know about the grammy nomination - kewl...
UnderTween: Wierd Al, Merl? Very funny
UnderTween: Denver, Merl? You do get around...
Merlyn: I mentioned to Ossman once that the other 3 were one-up on grammy nominations on him, but he corrected me since he got a grammy nomination for war of the worlds
Merlyn: my new DSL modem is in denvar I guess
Elayne: Oops sorry, hi Brian. Busy doing my live-blogging prep over at Mannion's place.
UnderTween: Nino actually has clem close to home this week
Merlyn: I saw, E
Elayne: I should get Mannion in here one of these days, he has to be a Firesign fan...
Merlyn: I think I can fix nino
UnderTween: Ossman did WotW? Had no idea...
Merlyn: hey Elayne, you know about the secret mostly-non-firesign project?
cease: not the orson welles one
Merlyn: the 50th anniversary edition, tween
cease: orson and ossman both played orson welles in the original, recreated in Red Shift
UnderTween: Didn't think he did the one in '38 lol
Elayne: Nope, Brian. It's all I can do to keep up with my own life lately, and I'm not doing very well at that.

ah,clem: that was orson, lol
UnderTween: Now _that's precotious
UnderTween: I see Bubba's site's still up, though he isn't taking orders
UnderTween: Hello Dali, It's NASA to have you back where you belong! When the Dali Lama is reborn on Mars, the Martians know that their great project has come to fulfillment. But when paranoid earthlings fear invasion, they resurrect Chairman Mao in electronic form. Will Virtual Mao keep the Red Planet red? Firesign-influenced audio art from Canada's Cat Simril.

Merlyn: I'm speechless
UnderTween: I'm hearless, nice to meet you...

cease: will it come back to life, merl?
UnderTween: 3 Faces really is good...
UnderTween: The software update utility should be set to let you know automatically
cease: hey clem, did you ever find Danger down Under?
Merlyn: not sure cat, it might be too expensive to fix. The one cheap place couldn't get their apple stuff ready so they gave it back, but noplace else is cheap enough to make it worth doing. I'll try them again
||||||||| 9:36 PM: Mudhead jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past hour!"
Merlyn: If it's the power supply, that's about $150 in parts and this place is about $50 labor, otherwise a used one is like $450
cease: hi mud
Merlyn: but then I'd probably get a new imac for $1200
cease: this flick i saw today is like you're describing 3 faces, ah
Merlyn: a used imac the same model as mine, that is, is $450
Mudhead: hi all
