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 November 08, 2007 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| sanela enters at 6:16 AM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and rushes off to the Haberdashery Barn.
sanela: hello
||||||||| sanela, spotting Bradshaw, runs into The Portrait Gallery.
||||||||| Catherwood stomps in at 8:26 AM, dragging Firebroiled by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this bozo?"
Firebroiled: As of an hour ago -- 148. That’s lunar feet.
He has a full head of hair,
his features are normal in every respect,
and pleasing, too,
I might add. Our only concern now is with a certian pigmentation-imbalance
which has manifested all day.

||||||||| Firebroiled says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, Firebroiled exits at 8:27 AM.
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 6:21 PM, dragging ReUsableTweeny by one leg and asks "Can anyone vouch for this Yahoo ™?"
ReUsableTweeny: Who's movie _is_ this, anyway?
||||||||| "6:22 PM? I'm late!" exclaims ReUsableTweeny, who then hurries out through the french doors and down through the brambles.
||||||||| Catherwood leads JustTheTweenOfUs in through the front door at 7:43 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in and pipes up "Presenting 'wake', just granted probation at 7:45 PM", then leaves hurriedly.

||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 8 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Mudhead close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 8:22 PM tree-stunting plans, and scurries off to the sitting room.
Mudhead: Hi wake

Merlyn: hey folx
Mudhead: Welcome Merlyn

Bunnyboy: cat: But it's mainly about the investigators, and the events that happen inside and outside their worktime.

Elayne: Didn't want y'all to think I'd disappeared from the face of the Earth. :)
Elayne: Life in transition at the moment, seems like I'm always tired.

Dexter Fong: Elayne: Don't think so

Elayne: Robin's in the middle of the 8-issue Suicide Squad miniseries, doing very nice work over the Spaniard.
Merlyn: that's metaphysically absurd, E
cease: great news
Elayne: Javi fell behind in the last issue because his gal gave birth to their first child. A real cutie.
Dexter Fong: Robin worked over a spaniel???What's next, roughing up a kitty cat?

Bunnyboy: El: HEROES fan?
Elayne: I'm so tired, I'm actually unitasking this evening...
wake: I can chat when I am not on the phone... being an international wheeler dealer is very trying
Elayne: Bunnyboy, not so's you'd notice. I glance at it from time to time. Next week's supposed to be better.
Elayne: I find it interesting that the creator actually apologized for the show's recent suckage.
wake: No. I am in Bangkok.
Bunnyboy: El: Yeah, just in time for the scripts to dry up.
Bunnyboy: El: Yeah, I saw that Kring pulled a mea culpa.
Elayne: Wow, Wake. Is Bangkok as scary as it seems from all those travel shows?
Honey : wide a wake in bangkok
Elayne: Bunnyboy, more power to the writers, I says.
Honey : more money too, Elayne
Bunnyboy: El: As do I. Solidarity Forever!
Elayne: I linked to a couple good YouTube vids about the strike today.
Bunnyboy: Oops, sorry. Former union steward, back in my public employee days in Oregon.

||||||||| Around 10:15 PM, wake walks off into the sunset...
Dexter Fong: I've lost him
cease: jsut call him Al, wake

Hemlock Stones: the greedy bastards at the studios always behave like parasites and dont even look after their own
Hemlock Stones: Hi Clem
Bunnyboy: There are strikecarpers. Michael Eisner labeled the strike "stupid" and "misguided".
Elayne: Michael Eisner wants everyone to go to war against Steve Jobs. :) I think he's lost it.
cease: this is from the pbs thing,?
Hemlock Stones: i wonder who writes Eisners lines for him ?
JustTheTweenOfUs: Long day for me folks. Everybody have a great week, remember the Saturday CNI chat during the Jim & Bambi Show, and don't forget to support CNI Radio at: http://www.cniradio.com/donations.htm

Dexter Fong: Stones: Wasn't he Ki m {hilby's advisor
Hemlock Stones: i never dared to ask to be honest Cease
cease: i try not be on the same floor
Bunnyboy: El: Do you follow the new SPIRIT book. I think Darwyn Cooke has come as close as possible to nailing the character, in the 21st century.
Elayne: I agree, Bunnyboy, it's pretty nice.
cease: have any of you seen Sicko? i jsut watched it this aft
Bunnyboy: El: Didja hear who's taking over the title, starting with issue #14?

Elayne: But I'm really looking forward to Mike Ploog's art, as he started out as an assistant to Eisner.
Hemlock Stones: and here was me thinking it was Alanis Morrisette
cease: only in atlantis, stones
Bunnyboy: El: Yes, more fun and adventure from all three. Mark is certainly clever enough to keep the plots rolling.
cease: sicko also had great tony benn interview on the birth of brit health service
Hemlock Stones: oic, that explains the bubbles
cease: interesting charactger named Bubbles in The Wire
Hemlock Stones: trouble is cease, the Brit health service is being ruined by the current regime who have invested countless millions in new suits
cease: or at leastr he aint dead yet

Dexter Fong: I knew Tiny Bubbles..he was into wine

Hemlock Stones: wrong isnt exactly right cease
Bunnyboy: And THE SPIRIT movie is filming, directed and adapted by Frank Miller, with Samuel L. Jackson as the Octopus, and....Dan Lauria as Commisioner Dolan?!?

Bubba's Brain: Hey all....
Dexter Fong: Hi Bubba
Merlyn: hey BB
cease: hey bub. hows the grub?
Honey : hola bubba :=)
Elayne: Hi Bubba!
Hemlock Stones: Britain once had the worlds best health care system but now its all compartmentalised and crawling with suits and political appointees
Bubba's Brain: grub was wub wub, cub.
