||||||||| At 8:22 AM, Firebroiled runs out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood snorts derisively: "6:48 PM and late as usual, it's H. Stones, just back from England."
||||||||| It's 7:00 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| H. Stones - dead from dengue fever
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Tween-O-Matic steals in around 7:25 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last month's "unpleasant incident."
Tween-O-Matic: This is the beginning of the Chinese New Year!
Tween-O-Matic: The Year of the Giant Rat!
||||||||| "Hey Tween-O-Matic!" ... Tween-O-Matic turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 7:27 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...
||||||||| 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 ah,clem disembarks at 7:52 PM.
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern, '
||||||||| ah,clem leaves at 7:53 PM, singing "Oh, I'm just a little fishy, floating in the sea, and there ain't no hook that's smart enough to catch the likes of me..."
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and intones "Presenting 'ah,clem', just granted probation at 8:52 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
||||||||| "8:52 PM? I'm late!" exclaims ah,clem, who then hurries out through the french doors and down through the brambles.
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Merlyn close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 9:00 PM tree-stunting plans, and dashes off to the sitting room.
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in and snorts derisively "Presenting 'Tween-O-Matic', just granted probation at 9:00 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, February 07, 2008 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
Merlyn: hey tween, catherW
Merlyn: Bring me a whiz-bang jalopy, Catherwood, please.

Tween-O-Matic: It slices, it dices, it removes those pesky fears....
Tween-O-Matic: Ah, the Model Z
Merlyn: Z Cars is an old UK tv show

||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 9:43 PM, dragging Bambi by the hair and asks "Can anyone vouch for this Firehead?"

||||||||| llanwydd sneaks in around 10:02 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last year's "unpleasant incident."
Elayne: Sorry I wasn't around last week, I've been felled by a particularly nasty flu. It's really slowed the job hunt.
Tween-O-Matic: What's the name Bubba?
llanwydd: evening folks
Principalpoop: llan
Tween-O-Matic: Hey LL
cease: sorry to hear, el
Bubba's Brain: name of what?
Elayne: Fortunately, ComicMix finally paid me all the money they owed for my work last year (about $4600) that I never thought I'd get, so that's helped tide me over.
||||||||| Catherwood enters with H. Stones close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 10:02 PM tree-stunting plans, and hurries off to the Aviary.

Principalpoop: murdock, the black guy with mel gibson, several movies
H. Stones: brianjackson77@btinternet.com
Bubba's Brain: Mixed stars... sounds like a cosmic drink.
Tween-O-Matic: Jones' band made overtures - a little to wild lol
cease: sounds like a reality show premise
cease: nd i've never seen a reality show
Tween-O-Matic: Little Nashville Opry
H. Stones: they are pretty unreal, cease
Bubba's Brain: I think that was Murtaugh...
Tween-O-Matic: (wasn't so little ;)
cease: and on and one
Principalpoop: taugh taugh dock
H. Stones: its amazing what people will do to get on TV
Tween-O-Matic: Eagles' guitar on the stage (Leadon)- made me come back for more
Bubba's Brain: Never been, myself. (Little Nashville Opry, that is)
cease: i have no interest to ever watching myself on tv
Principalpoop: osprey or ohprey
Tween-O-Matic: The place had a concrete foundation - Jennings shook it ;)
cease: my skin takes on a palour not commonly seen among the living
Tween-O-Matic: Been many years, Bubba
H. Stones: i done rather a lot of tv and radio but almost all of it apart from some specialist music stations was serious news and current affairs stuff
cease: what is this?
Principalpoop: put that spinette in the palour
Principalpoop: sounds serious stones
Tween-O-Matic: New Grass Revival (Leadon)
ah,clem: still the same set, Cat
H. Stones: yes PP, usually serious environmental stuff
cease: this is part of the album?
ah,clem: yes
cease: wow, it has been a long time since i spun that disc
Principalpoop: it sounds classic, but I don't know the words
llanwydd: what disc?
Tween-O-Matic: Part Of The Union, more likely ;)
Tween-O-Matic: brb
Elayne: Damn, there goes that stupid cough again. Might have to curtail this...
Elayne: "More cough-ins, Warden?"
cease: hi llan
cease: lol el
ah,clem: anythanyge you want to
Principalpoop: if you don't cough, you can't get off, hehe cough cough
llanwydd: you mean the song, tween?
H. Stones: it aint the cough that carries you off but the coffin they carry you offin
Elayne: I'm being horrendously good, so many of the employers with whom I'm interviewed do mandatory drug testing... I can't believe that's still the rage in 21st century NYC.
Elayne: I haven't been asked to pee yet, but one never knows.
Principalpoop: i would be happy to test drugs for them
ah,clem: lol pp
Elayne: I really could have used some relief during the worst of my flu. As it was the OTC drugs raised my blood pressure something awful.
ah,clem: classic c&c joke
Principalpoop: sure boss, buy it buy it , wow
Bubba's Brain: E! Please pee! Quick! You'll explode!
cease: ive had many a job but never been piss tested. i think if they piss tested english teachers, there would soon be none
Elayne: Whew, thanks Bubba, I needed SOMEone's permission! :)
H. Stones: i notice they never seem to drug test politicians
ah,clem: lol Cat
Principalpoop: pee on a penny while you fill the bottle? do people still try that?
cease: i had to move my parents yesterday, to a "long term care home"
Elayne: I did find some OTC stuff that's formulated for diabetics, no added sugar or salt or dyes or anything else that I NEVER KNEW WAS IN THE REGULAR STUFF. Makes you wonder.
cease: which hopefully they cant get kicked out of
Principalpoop: drug test media owners
ah,clem: but I would have thought drama teachers, government teachers, need I go on...?
cease: indeed poop
cease: is that a canadian exdpresion or do you have them in the states?
cease: long term care home
Elayne: The drug testing "scandal" I find most amusing is when they talk about rappers & such. Has someone told the media that rappers aren't atheletes, that the whole "performance enhancing" thing DOESN'T APPLY TO THE CREATIVE ARTS?
Principalpoop: sure, we use the same phrase
ah,clem: most of my english teachers were pretty straight, comparativly.. :)
Elayne: Then again, Amy Winehouse was denied her visa because of her drug probs, so she won't be at the Grammys on Sunday.
cease: r3eally, el?
cease: i've always found them profoundly enhancing
Elayne: Yep, they're pretty strict about visa denials for stuff like that.
H. Stones: if the Cisteen chapel ceiling had been finished in under five years would Michaelangelo have been tested i wonder ?
Elayne: Well yeah, but the point is that whether or not drugs enhance performance still has nothing to do with art, the way it does with sport.
Tween-O-Matic: Cree arts?
Principalpoop: Albert brooks wrote about that
cease: spaceman lee wasnt called spaceman for nothing
ah,clem: they say cocaine enhances your personality, but what if you are an icehole
Elayne: In sports you can argue "unfair advantage" and "cheating." Art doesn't work the same way.
Tween-O-Matic: carol from python? lol
Tween-O-Matic: I'm the Urban Spaceman...
H. Stones: Elayne, that would make a good comedy sketch, artists fighting about who used colours best
Tween-O-Matic: Everybody wants the coca cola kid...
Principalpoop: they had the opportunity to use steroids too if they wanted, many many did
Elayne: Stones, I wouldn't doubt it's been done already. :)
H. Stones: yes probably
H. Stones: i want to see it
cease: i dont exist
Tween-O-Matic: As Walsh would say, "Are we done yet"?
Principalpoop: ahh, a followerer of anti-existentilism
Bubba's Brain: Huh? Cat disappeared.
cease: i thoguht walsh said "life's been good to me so far"
cease: the last and best line in Urban Spaceman
H. Stones: he only appeared to have disappeared Bubba
Tween-O-Matic: "You can't be done... Done's in California!!"
Bubba's Brain: "I think therefore I am" -- kinda blows that theory.
Tween-O-Matic: You can't be there, cease
Principalpoop: we haven't had that spirit here since 1964? 1974? 1984?
Tween-O-Matic: (James Gang w/Walsh)
Principalpoop: wise words
cease: 1969
Tween-O-Matic: Well, as long as IU is still giving Julilard a problem Bubba ;)
Principalpoop: no more calls, we have a winner
ah,clem: he did "lif's been good" with the eagles
cease: ive enjoyed all of walsh's work over the years. partic enjoyed his roll on Duckman, doing parodies of his songs
ah,clem: as well
Tween-O-Matic: (sp)
Tween-O-Matic: Walsh is underestimated
cease: i share his enthusiasm for vince guaraldi
ah,clem humming the all night laundromat blues
Principalpoop: the guy that makes the fancy chocolate?
Tween-O-Matic: Who can we get to replace Bernie Leadon? yikes
cease: whose voice is this?
cease: sure doenst sound like firesign.
cease: this sucks
Principalpoop: scotish
Tween-O-Matic: Kentucky Woman?

Tween-O-Matic: The Girl Can't Help It, P
Principalpoop: shang 'em high
Tween-O-Matic: lol
Tween-O-Matic: Spaghetti Eastern?

Tween-O-Matic: Nkow tyhis?
