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 4:33 AM - I now declare Thursday's chat log for August 23, 2007 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood intones: "6:37 AM and late as usual, it's bronowski, just back from Hellmouth."
bronowski: how did you know
||||||||| bronowski leaves to catch the 6:40 AM train to New Delhi.
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood snorts derisively: "10:31 AM and late as usual, it's Firebroiled, just back from Elmertown."
Firebroiled: Hello, Dear Friends. It’s so beautiful up here, Dear Driends. It’s so clean. Yes, Dear Friends, there’s no druken drivers here. No broken glass. No air. . . . Over.
||||||||| At 10:32 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...
||||||||| Catherwood walks up and intones "Presenting 'Mudhead', just granted probation at 8:41 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
||||||||| 9:00 PM: llanwydd jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past hour!"
llanwydd: not late this time
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and announces "Announcing 'cease', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:00 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the anteroom...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, August 23, 2007 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
cease: llan, mud

cease: forced myself to make another blog post this aft, which y'all can read at www.seemrealland.blogspot.com
||||||||| 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 DrFrankenTween disembarks at 9:05 PM.
Dr. Headphones: it's the tweenster!
cease: i was forced to be busy while there, but then it was work. the opposite of sloth
DrFrankenTween: Lo dere
cease: hi tween.
llanwydd: hey tween!
DrFrankenTween: No Firesign Radio?

Dr. Headphones: she called her mom and told her she was sick to death of rice and wanted french fries and pizza!
||||||||| Catherwood escorts ah,clem into the room, accepts a wooden nickel as a gratuity, grumbles something about 9:06 PM, then departs.
cease: not during the summer i hope. that's like being sent to hell
Dr. Headphones: ah, it's ah, clem. ah......
Dr. Headphones: and while she was there, they had an earthquake AND a typhoon

Dr. Headphones: i just bought a cable and software for my phone. have spent a couple hours downloading .mid files and assigning them to people. i won't ever remember who is "all good people" or "black magic woman" but it will be fun hearing them
ah,clem: tks all, sure Bambi will stop in later
Dr. Headphones: jl, are you doing better physically?

Dr. Headphones: btw, can't figure out how to do mp3 files. it says i have a codec missing in my phone.
DrFrankenTween: Ah, ringtones
ah,clem: not been well for the last couple days, but may just be a bug
Dr. Headphones: tween: i'll be damned if i'll spend $2.99 each from the phone company!
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in and pipes up "Presenting 'Dexter Fong', just granted probation at 9:09 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
llanwydd: what a horrible thing to have missing in your phone
Dr. Headphones: hey, dexman
llanwydd: what's a codec?
DrFrankenTween: Mr. Fong...

DrFrankenTween: Rest up, JL
Dexter Fong: Clem, cat, Tweeny and Mudhead

Dexter Fong: The tex' is clear

DrFrankenTween: Tex? Like a sauna

Dr. Headphones: don't forget the sex if you're trying to rhyme

Dexter Fong: Kend^: I've been wondering about your not being hear both of late and just plain late
llanwydd: nobody else was here
cease: saw log
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Merlyn', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:11 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
DrFrankenTween: Which play, LL?
Merlyn: I'm also known as Merlyn
DrFrankenTween: Evenin' Merlyn

Dr. Headphones: pee right in the stream, dear friends
Dexter Fong: But downstream from my cabin
Mudhead: neway
Dr. Headphones: first cowboy rule: bathe upstream from the cows
Merlyn: This might make a chat line or two vanish...
Mudhead: i wanted to add my picture to the miscreants page

DrFrankenTween: Amazing - Nino actually has me in the right city
Dr. Headphones: miscreants and mistercreants too

DrFrankenTween: He's dead now, but lives on in stereo Hi-Fi...
Dexter Fong: And how smooth was that
Dr. Headphones: smooth as a a post-prandial milk of magnesia cocktail ;)
cease: that can be said of Bit

Mudhead: http://azores.globat.com/~bararcade.net/pics/rib.jpg
Dexter Fong: Cat: Then you'd like a PBS show I saw last night re: the rise and fall of Muslem SPAIN

DrFrankenTween: People forget about how big the Muslim empire was
Mudhead: Argghhhh
Dexter Fong: Ken: Then he went to Yale

cease: thankfully we didnt wander intoo any bullfights
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood snorts derisively: "9:21 PM and late as usual, it's doctec, just back from Milford."
Dexter Fong: Long John Silver's?
Dr. Headphones: howdy, tom
DrFrankenTween: That's an arrrr matey picture allright ;-)

Merlyn: the town is so small it has to share a zip code?
doctec: i are a windoze programmer (or becoming one at any rate)
Dexter Fong: The Town the Phone Company forgot
Dr. Headphones: good deal, doc. you get paid to improve your skillset

Dexter Fong hemi semi demi quivers
DrFrankenTween: Worked with Vista much, Doc?
doctec: but if it eas a paying gig, then i say more power to ya

doctec: i saw the email while i was at the office, i think it's great that talon is pulling wonkette's chain
Mudhead: some weekend we really should do coffee
Dr. Headphones: i hope lili is still doing quite well?
Dexter Fong: Kend^: I recommend starting on a Nashville Steel Guitar
doctec: tween: not as yet
Dr. Headphones: dex: i have a 1954 L7 sunburst archtop gibson, but it's not suitable for classisal work, so i'll buy a good guitar
doctec: i won't touch it as far as my own pcs go - as i use them for music and audio work, the resource hungry vista would cause more probs than it solves
doctec: and as for work - we have to develop for xp as that is what the client has deployed through their company
cease: did you see the you tube ishikawas vids i sent you links to, doc?
cease: i'll have more this weekend
Dr. Headphones: doc, alas, my new laptop came with it installed. i'm still learning it's quirks and foibles, and setting everything possible to the "old" way

Mudhead: np
doctec: lili and i have to spend this weekend and the coming weekdays whipping the house into shape for a visit from eleni and her daughter the following weekend
Merlyn: Here's my favorite review of talonnews.com: [talonnews.com is] like the Conservative Onion, only not as funny and rife with grammatical errors
doctec: we really have our work cut out for us
Dr. Headphones: ok, my dear friends, off to la la land for this olde phart. will return when i can

Merlyn: nite phones

llanwydd: he left without me saying goodbye
doctec: who needs air fresheners?
Dexter Fong: Who need a new living room suit

Dexter Fong: If it suites them
||||||||| It's 9:30 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| DrFrankenTween - dead from The Plague
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Dexter Fong: That was unexpected
cease: tween
doctec: last weekend i did something i haven't done in 12 years: perform w/computer & keys in front of an audience
Dexter Fong: An unsuspected exprise
llanwydd: you never expect the plague
doctec: it was at the end of a talk i gave to the local mensa group on computers & music in the new millennium
cease: good for you, doc
Dexter Fong: Doc: Did they understand it?
doctec: it was fun, to say the least
llanwydd: I always hear of mensa as something sinister
cease: your vistas are opening
doctec: dex: as a matter of fact, yes
llanwydd: in the media anyway
llanwydd: seriously, it doesn't have good pr
doctec: lland: nah, it's just a bunch of people who've done well on tests sharing social experiences
Merlyn: how can both mensa and mesa mean "table"?
doctec: nothing to see here
llanwydd: I know what it is but
Merlyn: and how can 3 elements be named after Ytterby?
llanwydd: for example
Dexter Fong: Like: "How'd you do on the multiplechoice questions"?
llanwydd: I saw something on a & e about a convicted criminal and they made a big deal of him being involved in mensa
Dexter Fong: Merlyn: Jose Ytterby?
doctec: how can someone with glasses have four eyes?
Merlyn: Ytterby, Switzerland
Dexter Fong: Implants
Merlyn: correc tion, Sweden
doctec: lland: just becuase someone is intelligent doesn't mean they're smart
Dexter Fong: Merl: Either is okay with me
Merlyn: and 4 elements are named after Ytterby
Merlyn: Yttrium(Y), Ytterbium(Yb), Terbium(Tb) and Erbium(Er).
Merlyn: End of physics lesson
Dexter Fong: And just because someone is an intelligence agent doesn't make them a smart alec
Merlyn: correct ion
Dexter Fong: Merl: Will this be on the test?
cease: off to get sangria ingredients
Mudhead: enjoy cat
Merlyn: Ytterbium will be on the test, which means you have to finish it in 2.3 seconds before it radiates away
Dexter Fong: Cat: Hope they're around the house
llanwydd: I scored just under the mensa "criterion" so to hell with them
llanwydd: sour grapes
Merlyn: Join "mesa"
Merlyn: mosey on down
llanwydd: that's an idea, merl
doctec: lland: you're really not missing anything - most mensans are boring and self absorbed head cases
llanwydd: lol, doc
Dexter Fong: Not like us
Merlyn: mess o' mesa potatia
doctec: i am a head case, but i try not to be too boring. whether or not i am self-absorbed is open to debate.
llanwydd: and what I said about the media is not a reflection on mensa
Merlyn: my son's name is scott, he's self-absorbant
Dexter Fong: Oh you had him quilted?
llanwydd: lol
Mudhead: I had a freind named Neal, never listened
Dexter Fong: what?
Mudhead: Neal, Stand Up
Dexter Fong: Catherwood, stand up also
||||||||| Catherwood stands up also.
llanwydd: I never had any friends
llanwydd: so I can't tell any jokes
Dexter Fong: Did you try the Quakers?
cease: leave it to the pros, llan
llanwydd: exept you guys but you all have ridiculous names
cease: by the way, we need a firesign fix
Dexter Fong: llan: At least I have a first and last name, not just a bunch of consanants
llanwydd: you can tel by my splelling I;m a candidtate for mesna
doctec: i too am not good with jokes, i find winging it to be much more challenging and entertaining
Dexter Fong: The sound of surprise
cease: candiddly doodly. anyone seen the simpsons flick? saw it last fri.
Dexter Fong: Not yet Cat
cease: i saw it in a theatre to see if they took advantage of the format. they did
cease: homer's ass is celestial on a big screen
Dexter Fong: An odd kind of review
cease: there are sight gags that work really well because of that format
cease: may not do so on home video equipment
Dexter Fong: Catherwood, ring the dinner bell
||||||||| Catherwood pretends not to hear Dexter Fong
cease: the southpark flick was my favourite flick until i saw the works of satoshi kon recently, but it utiilized its medium very differently from simpsons. i thik people expected the simpsons flick to become more x rated
Dexter Fong: A celestial ass is a good start
||||||||| Outside, the 9:48 PM downtown bus from Texas pulls away, leaving DrFrankenTween coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Dexter Fong: wb Tweeny
DrFrankenTween: Hello again...
cease: in contrast with bart's micro-genitals.
Mudhead: hai Tween
cease: a comment on those expectations.
DrFrankenTween: Domo, Mud
cease: see it theatre if you can, dex
Dexter Fong: thnx Cat
Dexter Fong: afk for refill
cease: good as simpsons was, and it is an extension of the tv show, paprika i saw before going to japan had a much greater effect on me. see blog
llanwydd: I have never watched the Simpletons or seen the movie
doctec: unless lili and i manage to catch the simpsons flick at the local 2nd run, i expect we'll be renting it
Merlyn: they're the paper cutout cartoon, llan
Mudhead: stop by, you can pick up a copy
cease: you'll enjoy it as dvd rental doc. but seeing homer's ass loom over you like an invading nebula is an experience in itself
Dexter Fong: Cat is channeling Carl SAGAN
doctec: cat: i imagine it does
llanwydd: I mean I've never watched a whole episode
llanwydd: of course I've seen it while channel surfing
Dexter Fong: No wonder you didn't get into Mensa or Skull and BONES
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 9:58 PM, dragging Johnny Piano by one leg and asks "Can anyone vouch for this yahoo?"
Johnny Piano: Howdy, buckaroos
Dexter Fong: Shake a leg JP
llanwydd: Hey JP
Dexter Fong: Not that one
llanwydd: skull and bones? not familiar
Johnny Piano: Guess I don't need to ask what's shaking then
Dexter Fong: llan: The exclusive Yale secret society of which many people including Bsh have been members
Johnny Piano: The Skulls
llanwydd: oh, yes. I've heard of that
Johnny Piano: Probably better known as The Numb Skulls
cease: hi jp. hows it jping?
llanwydd: well, I would never have attended Yale
Dexter Fong: Skull and Bones now runs all the rackets in Vancouver
Johnny Piano: Just fine, Cat
llanwydd: isn't the tuition about $30,000 a year?
llanwydd: who would bother?
cease: so thats why its so noisy
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Dexter Fong: If you have to ask, you'll never know
cease: give me 30k, i'll teach you something
Dexter Fong: lol Cat
Johnny Piano: Yep, lots of machines here that go "jping,"
Johnny Piano: Oh, rackets in Vancouver...never mind
cease: i was a teacher for 31 years. all of those students must have lrearned something
Dexter Fong: jping - mongramed gold clubs
Dexter Fong: golf
Dexter Fong: gold golf clubs
Johnny Piano: Just came home from a hooley at the local Irish pub - couple o'pints of Black & Tan under my belt
Dexter Fong: Did you see Gil Hooley
Johnny Piano: Excuse me, must prepare my Chinese dinner after my Irish beer...
Dexter Fong: Bon Appetit
llanwydd: we'll call you McChang
Dexter Fong: Hooley McChang
DrFrankenTween: ...
Johnny Piano: Be right back, something weird just brought to my attention...
||||||||| "10:06 PM? I'm late!" exclaims Johnny Piano, who then dashes out through the french doors and down through the flowerbeds.
llanwydd: and the terrible chat drought continues
Merlyn: I was updating talonnews stuff
Dexter Fong: Catherwood, whistle us up a happy tune
||||||||| Catherwood walks alongside Dexter Fong and says "Something I can help with?"
Merlyn: oh, what a giveaway

llanwydd: think chinese-irish food is bad? I'm having falafel with cranberry sauce

||||||||| Catherwood leads Principalpoop inside, makes a note of the time (10:16 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
cease: can we have only dry earth from now on?
Dexter Fong: Night Mud
Mudhead: nah, just goin to sleep
Dexter Fong: Hey poop
Mudhead: I reired years ago
Principalpoop: night night mud
Johnny Piano: Yeah, Cat, I figured that was just part of the rewriting to make Frodo and the other hobbits more appealing to the younger audience members. There was a awful of Arwen stuff added as well.
Mudhead: nighty nite dear friends
Principalpoop: you got rearended?
cease: is it better to retire than to never having tired at all?

Principalpoop: i was not at home watching tv hehe
Dexter Fong: Did you?
Principalpoop: python had to wait
Dexter Fong: Get it, that it?
Dexter Fong: is?
Johnny Piano: Actually, if memory serves, I read part of the "Big Book Of Plays" before I actually heard Firesign

Dexter Fong: That must have been an interesting way to first eperience FST
Principalpoop: that is possible too JP, I have no idea
llanwydd: Same with me, JP. I saw it in a college bookstore
Principalpoop: i have that somewhere, i may have replaced it once
Principalpoop: what edition is it in now?

Johnny Piano: It was the humor that dragged me into it, rather than the subcultural subtext
Principalpoop: that is far out llan
