||||||||| Popiel'sPocketTweeny steals in around 9:00 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last night's "unpleasant incident."
Mudhead: lets get this puppy airborne
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, January 10, 2008 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: Don't throw that puppy, Mud!!
||||||||| Tor Hershman enters at 9:01 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and hurries off to the Chapeau Manger.

Mudhead: Yes, Im extrodinarily lonely, but whoever visits must have had chickenpox or tyey could get very sick
Elayne: I believe I've had the pox du pollo, but I'll double-check with Mom.
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and pipes up "Announcing 'Bubba's Brain', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:12 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the sitting room...

Mudhead: I think we shouldnt chance it right now Elayne
Mudhead: Id hate to get him sick
Bubba's Brain: So whats up with everyone....?

Elayne: Has Air America contacted you, Cat?
Mudhead: All Hail
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: My Mom & brother keep wanting me to move back to Nashville, Bubba
||||||||| 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.
cease: relatively short pieces that are poliitcal enough and relavent enough to play
llanwydd: TGIT
cease: i'm going cruising with the station to mexico next month, el
Elayne: Definitely Pass the Indian, Please. Probaby Le Trente-Huit Cunegonda.
Elayne: Ooh, a cruise! I want to see regular reports on the food. :)

Popiel'sPocketTweeny: Evenin' LL
cease: i've been in touch with proc who has been in e-touch with thom hartmann who plays EYKIW as an intro to his segment of that name
Elayne: Hi Llan!
cease: is merl here?
cease: i wonder about that XM piece they did on enron
Bubba's Brain: IN, not TN, if I remember right, Tween, right?
llanwydd: home a little early from my play rehearsal
cease: can air america play that or is that owned by xm?
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: The Chinchilla Show, cease
cease: hi llan
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: Yep Bubba
cease: how is that relavnet to us politics, tween?
cease: from dear friends, i'm thinking the sound poem or whatever it's called, on extinction
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: Is that the theme, cease?
cease: also myabe deputy dan has no friends
Bubba's Brain: Are you thinking of actually doing it, Tween?
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: Yeah, the Echo Poem
Elayne: Yes, Deputy Dan would be a good one.
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: Also good (Deputy Dan)
Bambi: He found it
cease: it has to be something people who['ve never heard the FT could here and benefit from while in midst of a radio station that does only politics
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: Maybe this March. We'll see Bubba
Elayne: You know, an awful lot of Fighting Clowns is pretty explicitly political.
cease: the little he Broke the President piece from inside Bozos, the War thing from Dwarf that they expand on Weirdly cool and their concerts
cease: the oh afghasitan piece is extremeely relevent
Bubba's Brain: I'd love to meet up wit'cha sometime if you do.
llanwydd: I didn't really like Fighting Clowns
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: How about the one from Dear Friends with the senators boozing it up?
Elayne: I didn't think it was their strongest either, Llan, but it's better for the Air America crowd than a lot of their other stuff.
llanwydd: although I caught the tour. I thought "Lawyers Hospital" was much better
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: Sure Bubba. Will be sure to let you know if I'm in the neighborhood.
cease: i iwll be hanging out with hartmann and i'd like to give him a CD or firesign things me might want to play on his show. maybe rachel maddow too, as she's kinda comedy oriented
Elayne: I don't recall a lot of overtly political stuff on Lawyer's Hospital.
Elayne: Maddow probably knows from Firesign already.
Bubba's Brain: Beat the Reaper is short and to the point, cat, and hell, even Rush likes it.
llanwydd: the performance was excellent, to be perfectly honest
cease: yes thats a good one, tween. it even has ralph nadir in it. he was on maddow today
cease: i agree, bub
llanwydd: that
cease: she
llanwydd: that's a nadir
Tor Hershman: Marchin'
cease: she's never played FT, at least on her aft show. i'll definitely talk to her about them, maybe give her a disc
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: How about the bit with Nick Danger getting interrupted for a message from Roosevelt?
llanwydd: well I'm unsafe at any speed
cease: i was thinking of Police State, their "single" too
cease: yes, hartman is seriously into history, and fdr in partic. he'd love that
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: Police State would be good
llanwydd: I had big legs once
Tor Hershman: Hartman.....hummmmmm, what's the name of his show? Something like "Hippitty Ho America?"
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: I have that edited, if you want it cease
cease: the nick danger piece, tween?
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: Not very good quiality though. From _very_ old vinyl
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: The Roosevelt bit
cease: problem is i have dear friends on cassette, a poor audio medium.
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: The poor vinyl actually adds to the authenticity, though
cease: i should probably buy the cd
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: Well, I'll send it and you can use it or not
cease: i have the 2 places cd. i can get a get copy from there, tween
llanwydd: which df do you have on cassette, cat? the 12-album version?
cease: when df came out, a friend made an open reel copy for me and i made a cassette of it
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: OK - in your mailbox anyway
cease: i also have tons of other stuff, but i dont know if it can be played commercially
llanwydd: I had the Columbia DF
cease: i shold have bought the df cd from bubba
||||||||| "9:28 PM? 9:28 PM!!" says Catherwood, "principalpoop should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as principalpoop enters and sits on the divan.

Merlyn: parcel post haste
cease: i told proc i'd give hartmann a copy of that
cease: merl, what about their XM stuff. can that be played elsewhere, for example on Air America?
Bambi: 11th Hour the game?
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: How about "Hedball Game" from EobE?
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: Headball
cease: no, its a flick, supposed to be the successor to An Incoveneint Truth, startring leo decaprio
llanwydd: I've never gotten satellite radio. I don't see the purpose
cease: that doenst ring a bell, tween
llanwydd: If I could get something like OTR which I am into, then something like that might be wothwhile
cease: it might be fun for taxi or truck drivers, llan
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: 1st cut on EobE
llanwydd: My parents have satellite radio but they can well afford it
cease: i have it on a cassette so wouldnt know cuts
cease: this would be great, but they can't play swearing on air america
Tor Hershman: A Moose and Candy, Crack Benny, The Shad Owe

llanwydd: I've never heard Air America but I 've heard enough about it to say that I think "Temporarily Humboldt County" would suit it's listeners
Dexter Fong: Cat: Were you asking *me* what FST pieces would work well on AA?
Bambi: hi Bubba, Cat, Dex, E!, llanwydd, Merlyn, Mudhead, Tween, princep, Tor and of course Clem :-)
llanwydd: Maybe "Forward Into the Past"

cease: i'm compiling firesign bits to take on the cruise with the air america folks next month
principalpoop: did you pick up my string, fong?
llanwydd: turn green and buzz forever? is this urban legend?
Dexter Fong: Yes cat, All I can add is I'd think that AA would want reasonably short pieces.
cease: of course, dex
cease: hartman uses the eykiw intro and i've heard firesign bits played on the old majority report and other shows
principalpoop: depends on what they have been using, ralph spoilsport does not go with white wine

principalpoop: a white truck, oops cart blanche
Elayne has got to go collapse... see you next week, all...
||||||||| Elayne rushes out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's Elayne?! It's 9:46 PM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
Merlyn: bergman is concerned that any copyright problems would get FT in trouble, but XM doesn't care enough to create any paperwork to authorize anything
cease: he would have the cleanest versions of everytrhing
principalpoop: ciao E
cease: keep wlel, el
Tor Hershman: TTFN, El
Merlyn: it isn't worth XM's time to bother, so it'll never happen
Dexter Fong: Night E
cease: ok, if bergman is worried, thats enough for me
llanwydd: according to the text, elayne has been kidnapped. nobody seems to have noticed
cease: the last we want is any more irate firesigners
