A Firesign Chat


Special appearance by
Phil Austin

||||||||| Catherwood re-enters the Waiting Room and explains "This is the main discussion room which is logged each night."
||||||||| Catherwood announces, "The time is 4:33 AM - I now declare Thursday's chat log for August 02, 2007 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| 8:50 AM: Firebroil jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past half hour!"
Firebroil: A man who has the confidence of his people! Our generated, veneered leader! Our own Fighting Jack! Lord Kerchner . . . er . . . Kitchener Bush!
||||||||| "8:50 AM? I'm late!" exclaims Firebroil, who then dashes out through the french doors and down through the bushes.
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, August 02, 2007 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!" -- then he looks around at the empty room, looks at his watch, and mumbles "...am I early?"
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies Dexter Fong inside, makes a note of the time (9:03 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Dexter Fong: That Forebroil, he's always here ahead of me
Dexter Fong: Firebroil
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and pipes up "Announcing 'Principalpoop', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:04 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the sitting room...
Dexter Fong: Hey poop

Principalpoop: how was the concert?
Dexter Fong: Wasn't here last week so maybe they changed the time or place
Dexter Fong: What concert was that, poop?
Principalpoop: nobody told me, but that would not be first time I was out of the loop
Dexter Fong: The "Poop" is outta the loop
Principalpoop: I thought you were going to a jazz concert, that is why you were not going to be here last week
Dexter Fong: No, Poop..I was in Delaware at my neices house near the beach, little vacation and recooperating from pneumonia

Principalpoop: unless my memory is bad also
Dexter Fong: Didn't you just say that?
Principalpoop: was the weather nice? got some sun?
Principalpoop: say what? huh? damn, confused for the 2nd time already
Dexter Fong: Weather was very nice, warm during day but coolish at night, stay outta the sun for reasons of skin cancer...but read several books, ate well, drank well and saw the grandkids
Principalpoop: delaware is nice, too small to be a state, but it is nice
Principalpoop: ahh super vacation

Dexter Fong: If you're gonna drop trou, you gotta stick it out while you're young
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and announces "Announcing 'Hemlock Stones', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:13 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the Aviary...

Hemlock Stones: impressively awful pun Dr H
Bubba's Brain: Hey Dex, Hem, Pp....
Dexter Fong: ;performs fan fare with exclamations points and underlines
Dr. Headphones: hey, stones, much better than fanfare for the colon man!

Principalpoop: you forgot knod bubba
Bubba's Brain: Fan faire?
Principalpoop: any adults here?
Hemlock Stones: thats by comparision a really shitty pun Dr
Dr. Headphones: it's a capital offense to forget knod since he's the only one in all lowercase letters

Dexter Fong: I guees that makes me adultorous
Bubba's Brain: Nobody here but us kids.

Bubba's Brain: Nite Dr.H
||||||||| 9:35 PM -- Dr. Headphones left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and pipes up "Announcing 'doctec', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:35 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the anteroom...
Hemlock Stones: stop putting al that dust on the piano Poop, it took ages to polish
doctec: quiet tonight it would seem...
Hemlock Stones: Hi Doc
Principalpoop: i thought the ball was starting to roll but we lost one, ahh gained one
Dexter Fong: Hi Doc
doctec: 2nd day at my new job today - boy do i have a learning curve ahead of me
Principalpoop: silence is golden, but my eyes can see
Bubba's Brain: Hi doc
Dexter Fong: Doc: YOu got that Minneapolis? jub
Dexter Fong: Johnson?
Principalpoop: super doc, you will have fun
Hemlock Stones: break before the curve and accelerate out of it doctec
Bubba's Brain: glad to hear about your job -- only just read last weeks log and found out.
doctec: ms visual studio, .Net framework, c#, asp.net, ms sql server 2005 - the mind reels
Principalpoop: gear up, or down, hell, i need to sign up for that class again...
doctec: fortunately the first thing they threw me today was building an html mockup of a new home page for the business, i can do that at the very least
Dexter Fong: This is real...reel 45 of "The Tirebiter sagas"
Principalpoop: which reel? ahh 45
doctec: man do i have a lot to learn tho
Hemlock Stones: i have forgotten more than i will ever remember
Dexter Fong: Didn't I just say that?
Principalpoop: don't reinvent the wheel, find similar applications on the web and copy....
Hemlock Stones: spoken like a true pirate PP
knod: if i remembered 10 percent of what i have learned, i'd be a genious
Dexter Fong: Har! Har!
doctec: bubba: has ossman been in touch? he and judith appear to have taken on the task of getting new firesign products out
Principalpoop: get a porn site that uses sql.asp.net and replace the word tits with business reports
Dexter Fong: lol Poop =))
doctec: they have (sorta) big plans - hope they all come to fruition
Principalpoop: ahhh super
Hemlock Stones: i have met a few tits whose only skil was business reports
Bubba's Brain: Not recently, but I've been sending info on products to get them up to speed.
Dexter Fong: I remember Toots Mondello, wrote a great business report about the tenor saxaphone
Hemlock Stones: didnt he play with Buddy Rich Fong ?
doctec: that's great bb - i hope they are able to pump new product into the pipeline (with your valuable help)
Dexter Fong: Actually Benny Goodman

Principalpoop: waiter?
Dexter Fong: Funny, non...Amusemente, Si
Hemlock Stones: wait here
Principalpoop: the existentialist waiter is waiting for gogol
Dexter Fong: Where here?
Principalpoop: or somebody like him
doctec: i doubt we'll see much of ossman here - he said as much in an email recently - he finds (and i don't blame him one bit) the chat environment and experience to be intimidating and formidable - i can sympathize, it's hard to keep a conversation going with 10+ people simultaneously, and track all the conversations as they transpire
Dexter Fong: That's me!
Hemlock Stones: luckily i am doing some cheapo re writes of famous stories
Principalpoop: it takes practice, and ego
Principalpoop: he must learn he can ignore folks with impunity lol
Dexter Fong: I just soled my first practising eagle
doctec: practice, eog and good typing skills
Dexter Fong: Nice shoes
doctec: or should i say "ego"
Principalpoop: 1984 with a happy ending?
Dexter Fong: Fly like an ego...just don't sound write
doctec: fingers overshoot hand/eye coordination at times
doctec: an ego to the see?
Principalpoop: what is the other one? ahh id
Dexter Fong: 1984 wuth not only a happy ending but golden showers
Hemlock Stones: noo, thats too ambitions, A Tale of One City is quite good and of course Oh Look, Here comes Godot Now !
knod: yuck
Dexter Fong: Id ain't neccesarily so
Principalpoop: i would read all those
doctec: it's a bird - it's a plane - it's an anal retentive perfectionist - no, it's "SUPER-EGO!!!"
Hemlock Stones: i have many more in the pipeline Poop
Principalpoop: from see to shining see
Principalpoop: try gloobners stones
Dexter Fong: Gloobner's Stones...There from Vermont
doctec: "Gloobner's Stones" - with real Glycerine Vibraphone!

Hemlock Stones: as in my new book For Who the Bell
Dexter Fong: Stones: I encourage everybody and in turn, feel; encourages

Hemlock Stones: it could be the wrong room for that Fong
Dexter Fong: The hHunch back of Notre

Hemlock Stones: Fox Net are still spreading lies and misinformation i see
Principalpoop: is that his first name? I thought it was shithead
doctec: ovaltine and vodka - breakfast of champions!!!!!

Hemlock Stones: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2007/07/18/the-fbi-can-eavesdrop-on-you-even-when-your-cell-phone-is-turned-off.aspx

Principalpoop: a girl is here, and she brought the food, let the orgy begin

Dexter Fong: Hi Elayne
doctec: i sent your response to david's e-blast (along with a whole bunch of others) to david & judith - they very much appreciated getting all the feedback to the "wiebel situation" (perhaps as explosive as the bonnie situation imho)
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 9:59 PM and Brujaha Honey bounds out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
Dexter Fong: Hi Bambi

Brujaha Honey: pasted too, dex
doctec: e: as i mentioned, there's a hell of a learning curve ahead of me - but i think i am up to the task. also, the commute has been great: 15 mins door to door. when i-95 gets busy this fall, it will prolly make morning commute 30 mins - but evening commute should be unaffected.
Principalpoop: pasted? you have been drinking and can still type that well?
Brujaha Honey hugs hemlock back equally largely
Dexter Fong: I got pasted last night...couldn't remember my fake chat name
Principalpoop: ahhh nice doc nice
Bubba's Brain: whats location of new job, Doc?
Bambi: awesome on the commute! We know you can do it doc (learning curve) :-)
Elayne: Are you doing the M-F, 9-5 thing, Doctec? 'Cause I have a vacation week coming up and I'd love to drive up to see you and celebrate!
Hemlock Stones: curves can be dangerous Doc,
Elayne: Oh, and Unca Dex, I'd love to see you as well, perhaps one evening in the East Village... I've made absolutely no plans so far for my "enforced vacation" week...
Brujaha Honey: you take the "Learning Curve" on the commute, Doc???

Brujaha Honey: glad to hear lili is doing good, doc :)
Dexter Fong nudges poop twice, than snaps twice
Bubba's Brain: I commuted 75 min each way to Indy for 1.5 years -- but Indiana traffic is nothing like East Coast.
Bambi: so glad to hear that Lili is doing great lately!
Principalpoop: groans, but with pleasure
Bambi: please give Lili our best
doctec: that, and the fact that she's now getting monthly soc sec disability and the fact i now have a job have had a cumulative positive effect on her
Dexter Fong: Smile poop
Bubba's Brain: Ditto what Bambi said.
doctec: bb: yes - bumper to bumper day after day can be soooooooo wearing
