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 April 17, 2008 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood stomps in at 8:34 AM, dragging Firebroiled by one leg and asks "Can anyone vouch for this Yahoo ™?"
Firebroiled: Is it too much, friends?
(Pull the curtains, Fred)
Look at this, look at this steaming heap.
Too much of Admirable Bird’s crackly brown French-fried Chicken Fingers?
Too many cuts of Mother Baker’s Deep-Dish Sheep Dip Cherrystone Pie?
Too many Tubs of Slaw?

Firebroiled: Far out. Oh, it really looks good! Oh, no, man. I want more!
Then take some, friends. Dip deep, darling! Take some pot-buttered groat clusters!
OK, man, you’ve been talkin’ a lot. Hand ‘em over!
Here you are!.
What? Oh, well! My God, it’s still warm!

||||||||| Firebroiled departs at 8:43 AM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
||||||||| ah,clem bounds in at 8:40 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FrieSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern'
||||||||| At 8:41 PM, ah,clem dashes out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, April 17, 2008 - 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 ushers ah,clem in through the front door at 9:07 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
||||||||| 9:08 PM -- ah,clem left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
||||||||| DrFrankenTween steals in around 9:12 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last night's "unpleasant incident."
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 9:12 PM and Bambi sashays out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
Bambi: howdy
Bambi: where is everyone tonight?
Bambi: hey Tween
||||||||| 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 falls out at 9:13 PM.
ah,clem: hi all
||||||||| Catherwood escorts LiliLamont into the room, accepts a $3 bill as a gratuity, grumbles something about 9:14 PM, then departs.
ah,clem: small but faithful crowd
DrFrankenTween: Hey there, Lili
Bambi: hi Lili!!
LiliLamont: Hi, all. Long time no chat.
ah,clem: hi lili
Bambi: wb Clem
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in and pipes up "Presenting 'doctec', just granted probation at 9:15 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
DrFrankenTween: Lo dere, Doc
Bambi: hey doctec!!!
DrFrankenTween: So how are you guys?
Bambi: so great to see you both here
LiliLamont: Hi, Bambi, Dr. F, Clem. good to see you all here. Doc will be joining us at some point. He's upstairs doing I don't know what.
LiliLamont: And there he is!
DrFrankenTween: A few minutes aith FrieSign Theatre? (see the banner)
Bambi: he's here now
Bambi: just gothere
doctec: hi
doctec: amazingly, i have managed to stay awake past 9pm on a Thursday
Bambi: yeah, Clem must have been in a bit of a rush putting up the banner
||||||||| cease enters at 9:16 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and hurries off to the Chapeau Manger.
DrFrankenTween: Hi cease
Bambi: Hey Cat
LiliLamont: Hi, cease, how are you?
cease: doc AND lili?
doctec: wonders never cease
cease: more important, how are YOU?
Bambi: that's great doc
DrFrankenTween: A two-fer
Bambi: how are you both holding up?
cease: did you get the data dvd i sent to lili's of the bit vid footage, doc and lili?
doctec: repeating: amazingly, i am actually awake past 9pm on a thursday
LiliLamont: Yep, on different floors. I have to stick close to the fridge so that I can drink a gallon of water before bed.
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern'
cease: i better break out the GOOD drugs
doctec: we're keeping our noses above the surface
Bambi: water is good, but gallon before bed? seems to be counter productive to sleep?!
LiliLamont: Doc has been working like a maniac and he's been trashed at the end of most of his workdays, so this is a rare treat to have him here.
doctec: cat: yes i did get the dvd - between the heavy work hours and the need to recharge my batteries when not working, i have not yet had a chance to preview it
ah,clem: you have good drugs, Cat?
cease: i expected as much doc
LiliLamont: Probably, but I have to lalvage prior to a med procedure tomorrow. Trust me, I like water, but not that much.
cease: atthese prices, i should hope so clem
ah,clem: isn't that mutually exclusive?
LiliLamont: that's lavage
cease: no vodka anymore, lilii?
Bambi: heard that Lili lol
cease: what wil the vodka producers do without your business?
Bambi: good luck on the med procedure
doctec: cat: i guess we'll find out soon enough
cease: speaking of audio firesigns, air america finally put the ossman intrview up today
cease: www.airamerica.com
doctec: we're both swearing off spirits for the foreeable future
doctec: as randi was tld to hit the rhodes
doctec: told
ah,clem: I'll drink to that Doc
cease: i swear and i indulge in spirits, but swearing off spirits is not in my vocabulary
LiliLamont: Not this week, cat. My shrink hat Doc join us in a meeting and Doc is now behaving as if he just saw Reefer Madness and believes it. Long story. anyway, I'll do almost anything to get the rest of my surgery, and apparently, teetotaling is what it will require.
DrFrankenTween: Yeah, that's terrible about Randi
cease: to quote greg palast on clout, re randi the day before her exit, air america firing randi is like a canoe telling an air craft carrier to move out of the way
DrFrankenTween: Guess she didn't want to apologize for calling Hillary a be-atch
cease: good for you, lili
doctec: well she's got a new gig now from what i understand, on nova-somethingorother
DrFrankenTween: lol
LiliLamont: Randi is a force to be reckoned with.
cease: thatr may have been it, tween. but there was a contract matter too
||||||||| Catherwood escorts llanwydd inside, makes a note of the time (9:22 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
llanwydd: must be thursday again
DrFrankenTween: Hey LL
DrFrankenTween: must be
ah,clem: yup
cease: of course its thursday. you're here
LiliLamont: excuse me, must get another bottle. *hic!*
ah,clem: we are?
cease: having just spent a week on a boat with randi and the other air americans, i wonder how long they can survive without her
doctec: she's gotta flush out her system for the visit to the v.a. tomorrow morning
llanwydd: I'm here but I'm not all there
doctec: cat: yeah, talk about cutting off their nose to spite their face
DrFrankenTween: Randi was one of the only reasons I'd tune in
doctec: i think the new owners of air america are doing a heck of a job alienating what few listeners they have
Bambi: hey llanwydd
cease: last week at this time i was eating the best italian food, best appetisers, maybe just food, of my life
LiliLamont: Yeah, remember the South Park episode where Cartman gets an anal probe from the aliens? Something like that.
Bambi: missed ya come in ... was looking for that piece with Dave Ossman
||||||||| HEMLOCK STONES enters at 9:25 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and scurries off to the Chapeau Manger.
cease: i come back and read the transcripts and y'all are talking about me eating at Red Lobster. what a descent
doctec: that was the first episode that aired
Bambi: http://airamerica.com/content/lionel-talks-david-ossman-firesign-theatre
Bambi: hey Stones
DrFrankenTween: Hi Stones
doctec: thanks for the link bambi!
llanwydd: you have to go all the way to italy for real italian food
cease: they only put up the first half of the interview. the 2nd half actually isnt that interesting
llanwydd: Hey Stones
DrFrankenTween: You at Red Lobster? Perish the thought ;)
doctec: lili can attest to that, lland
Bambi: had to search for it myself so figured I might as well share doc ;)
cease: ive been to fucking italy. the food i had last thurs was infinitely better
||||||||| Catherwood leads Hemlock Stones into the room, accepts three dimes as a gratuity, grumbles something about 9:25 PM, then departs.
DrFrankenTween: lol cease
doctec: and so can cat
Hemlock Stones: good eveing funsters
cease: although the guy is italian and won a bunch of his country's highest honours, he lives here now.
Bambi: wb Stones
doctec: hemmie
ah,clem: big stones and little stones
cease: hi stones. how's it rolling?
Hemlock Stones: oh, up and down, cease
doctec: lili will be back in a moment
Bambi: did you catch the link on airamerica for the David Ossman interview? I posted it while you were changing 'case'
Bambi smiles
doctec: (poor dear, time to flush again)
cease: doc, the place we went to last week is right next to Capones, where we went the last time you were here
doctec: ah yes capones
Bambi: heard that doc ... that's a lot of water!
cease: if only we knew about Cioppino's then
cease: he won best chef in van at that gold plates dinner i blogged about last dec
doctec: seems like a lifetime ago what with everything lili and i have been thru these past - what is it, three? - years
cease: speaking of italian food, i promised elayne i'd take her and robbin to one of batali's restaurant in nyc when i next visit
cease: now i have something to compare it to
cease: yea it was 05, doc. the last firesign concert
doctec: ooh they'll enjoy that for sure
cease: have you eaten at any of them?
doctec: me? no
cease: i was gonna try daniels in nyc but he's opening a restaurant here in july
Bambi: yeah, doc..must be about that long. dang, it's been nearly year since Clem got lymes and was in the hospital for eight days last May/June
doctec: we went to nyc about 3-4 wks ago to see last year at marienbad at the film forum - first time either of us have been in the city in 2 or 3 yrs i think
cease: time crawls so fast
doctec: time flies when you're bugged
llanwydd: I've never tried an italian restaurant in nyc
cease: you were in nyc with el and me in may 05
llanwydd: except for a kind of fancy pizzeria once
doctec: yep - that's when we picked up the little kitties
doctec: they are still quite adorable even if they are not kitties any more
cease: if i can get into the french laundry this may, my next stop will be his other restaurant in nyc, maybe may next year
cease: no, i start calling in may, in order to get a reservation in july
Bambi: have to post some current pics of them doc, or post the link where you have them if you already have
doctec: our third cat just turned 12 - he's doing great too
cease: same thing with Per Se in nyc but i'll have to get up at 5am every day to do that.
ah,clem: lymes and as a result of treatment, divertriculitus,
cease: indeed, doc
llanwydd: french laundry? I've heard of chinese laundries
doctec: yes bambi i will
DrFrankenTween: yikes - popular place
cease: sposed to be the best restaurant in north america. in rural northern cal
ah,clem: nothing been the same since
cease: if youve seen the dvd Ratatouie, the french laundry is featured.
ah,clem: but I am still here
cease: its chef keller was inspiration for that flick
Bambi: diverticulitis no fun
Bambi: especially the antibiotics and surgery
DrFrankenTween: Not an experience you'd recommend to your friends, eh clem?
cease: per se, his nyc rest, is supposed to be 2nd best on the continent.
cease: here is better than not here, clem
llanwydd: what is a french laundry?
doctec: lili and i love that movie - eleni & sierra brought the dvd with them when they visited early in march, i snagged a copy
ah,clem: would not wish it on any mamal, Tween
cease: did you watch the keller feature?
llanwydd: not familiar with keller
cease: thomas keller.
doctec: have not seen that - is that an extra on the disc that we missed?
cease: there's another keller at Fleur de Lys in Frsico i want to check out after the laundry. dont know if they're related or jsut coincidence both famous chefs
||||||||| Outside, the 9:36 PM bus from New York pulls away, leaving Dexter Fong coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
llanwydd: Hey Dex!
doctec: [i loved "your friend the rat" - hilarious]
||||||||| Hemlock Stones rushes off, saying "9:37 PM? Mark Time is almost on! Where's a radio?"
cease: as soon as we start discussing fine dining, dex appears.
DrFrankenTween: Hey Dex
Dexter Fong: Evening Folks
cease: coincidence?
llanwydd: no starch in my crepes, please
doctec: and no crepes in my starch either
Bambi: hey Dex
Dexter Fong: Hi clem. Bambi. Cat, dex, Doc, Tween, ;llan, Stones, Lili
doctec: hey dex
DrFrankenTween: Good place to get pressed duck though, I'll bet ;)
doctec: somebody step on a pressed duck?
Dexter Fong: And a quick goose too
Dexter Fong: A quick goose step, hmm
cease: doc, if you checket my review of last week's feast, you'll notice that dino is planning to open a kitchen for rent in one of his buildings
doctec: oh cool
||||||||| It's 9:40 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| HEMLOCK STONES - dead from jaundice
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
cease: a place for the best chefs in town, and visitors, to prepare catering.
DrFrankenTween: That would be the Vichy French Laundry
llanwydd: stones didn't last long tonight
doctec: [i have not had much time to read anyone's blog lately - sorry - my job is all consuming]
Dexter Fong: Eaten by your job
doctec: the past three weeks i think i've averaged 60 hrs/wk
DrFrankenTween: Is the learning curve flattening out, Doc?
Bambi: heard that doc
DrFrankenTween: jeeze, Doc
Bambi: ouch
cease: you need sleep, doc
doctec: not really - it's a classic case of "the more you know, the more you know you don't know"
Dexter Fong: What *was* 40 hrs per week is now 60
llanwydd: what was one is nothing
doctec: i work for a small company, change is the norm
DrFrankenTween: And what was spare time - is nothing...
doctec: the project manager we hired in december didn't work out
Dexter Fong: Spare time has struck out
DrFrankenTween: Bet that made life interesting
doctec: she thought she could approach it as if it were just a clerical position
Dexter Fong: Religious eh?
doctec: not so, however - she needed to learn our software and how our clients use it and how our programmers develop it, and she was not up to the task
doctec: so over the next couple of weeks it looks like gwen, our q/a (software tester) maven, and i, will be taking over the proj mgt duties
DrFrankenTween: Sounds rather demanding, to put it mildly
doctec: gwen will handle the adminstrative aspects while i work with the development team
cease: bummer, doc
cease: i hope you['re being well paid for it
Bambi: joy...not
doctec: this is a good change, inasmuch as there will be a job title change to go with it - and with any luck, a raise too
doctec: but if after two years more of this i can come away from it saying i can do project management, it will open career doors that have been closed to me up to now
cease: splendid, doc!
doctec: cat: actually, i'm only making about 2/3 of what i was making at jupitermedia, and working a lot harder
cease: looks like its an upwards trajectory though, doc
doctec: but since it's a small company, and our bosses have big growth plans in store, i'm in on the ground floor of what could become a *very* profitable enterprise
cease: going up
DrFrankenTween: I see Nino doesn't know where I am. Must be the wonderful new router Jim & Bambi help me set up ;)
DrFrankenTween: Fingers crossed for ya, Doc
doctec: if i can just survive and tame the grueling work schedule, the future holds some promise - looming ecological/economic disasters notwithstanding
Bambi: ah, yes...the looms are falling over for sure....
DrFrankenTween: If the east coast isn't innundated with iceburgs?
doctec: even if i survive the trial by fire at work, the world may not be in such good shape
DrFrankenTween: lol Bambi
doctec: supposedly, the poles are starting to move
cease: it'll survive us all, doc
doctec: it
DrFrankenTween: It's going to get interesting. I expect this time next year will be quite different
doctec: better than we will survive them, i imagine
Dexter Fong: Doc: They're moving out of my neighborhood..being replaced by slovaks
DrFrankenTween: Really Doc? That can truly wreak havoc
DrFrankenTween: har har Dex
Bambi: shake us off like a bad case of fleas....
Dexter Fong: You mean Rah! Rah! Dex
DrFrankenTween: what Bambi said ;)
doctec: between the collapsing political and economic infrastructure and the cumulative damage to the environment, things don't appear to bode well at this point - but who's to say? maybe it's a case of chicken little
LiliLamont: Nah, the sky really is falling. Look outside.
DrFrankenTween: I more worried about what the next generation is inheriting
Bambi: LOL Lili
DrFrankenTween: I'm
doctec: the sky isn't really falling, the horizon is moving up!
Dexter Fong: It's the horizontal Bop
DrFrankenTween: More like the horizontal Bhopal
llanwydd: dfghjk
Bambi: remember the pictures of Atlas holding up the world? well, put all the babies and children under there and you pretty much got the picture :-( and I worry about that too...we have 4 grandkids
doctec: and then there's the big 2001-style cosmic alignment that's supposed to happen around the time that the mayan calendar runs out
Dexter Fong: well said llanwwyydd
doctec: december 21, 2012 i think - give or take
DrFrankenTween: about right, Bambi
cease: there's nothing we can know of the future except that it includes our death
Bambi: yes, the end of one eon, starting a new one
doctec: some kind of alignment between our solar system and the "galactic core"
DrFrankenTween: Yeah, the History Channel did a bit on the 'end times' prophesies
Dexter Fong: Nice fanfare Clem
cease: ah, the clem voice
doctec: it's either gonna be a disaster of cataclysmic proportions or the dawn of a new era of enlightenment - perhaps both, maybe neither
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in at 9:53 PM, dragging Hemlock Stones by the hair and asks "Can anyone vouch for this yahoo?"
llanwydd: I think I saw the nostradamus episodes a while back
Dexter Fong: WB Stones old man
Dexter Fong: How's your son?
doctec: you didn't see that coming?
Hemlock Stones: ty Dexter,
llanwydd: stones what's your next step to be?
doctec: stradamus on the telephone: "i know ... i know ... i know ... i know ... i know ..."
Hemlock Stones: a few tech issues tonight due to heavy email load
doctec: nostradamus
cease: i took pleasure in relasing neal amid in 1998, when edgar cayce said both north american coasts would be cleaved off in earth quakes
cease: they are all firesign theatre albums, clem
llanwydd: I guess nobody's perfect
LiliLamont: Ah, the joke was on him.
doctec: if that happens, cat, watch the news - i'll be waving bye-bye
DrFrankenTween: Amazing amount of disaster-oriented stuff on cable these days
llanwydd: but cayce had a pretty good record
ah,clem )
cease: the last album was even worse. probalby the next one will be lawyer's hospital
doctec: i bet he's got a great cd too
ah,clem: lol Cat
cease: its a tour of my least favourite firestuff. and my blue jays just lost ignominously to bush's team
DrFrankenTween: C'mon, tell us how ya feel cease
llanwydd: lol doc
Hemlock Stones: will we all be fried alive like sausages with eyes ?
doctec: bush's former team, right?
DrFrankenTween: Not a good night for you, eh?
LiliLamont: Any news conference with Bush is inherently disaster oriented. did you see what he said to the Pope after the pope had finished addressing a crowd? He said, "Awesome speech."
cease: but even the worst firesign is better than most other stuff
DrFrankenTween: The TX Rangers
DrFrankenTween: He's quite the amazing moron
cease: are you sure it wasn't "awesome speech, dude?"
ah,clem: my point Cat
Dexter Fong: Lili: Then he asked the Pope "where's the little lady?"
DrFrankenTween: This is true, cease
llanwydd: that was the first time I ever heard Benedict's voice
DrFrankenTween: LOL
llanwydd: he speaks good english
ah,clem: even the worst firesign is better than most other stuff
doctec: i spik gud
LiliLamont: With just a hint of a German accent. Rumor has it he's a former Nazi.
llanwydd: I heard him on NPR this morning
DrFrankenTween: He was in the Hitler Youth
DrFrankenTween: as a teenager
Hemlock Stones: only the "former" is rumour
Dexter Fong: Vasn't everyone?
doctec: watch as he involuntarily lifts his arm when deutchland uber alles plays
ah,clem: at least it it is a good copy
llanwydd: he had to be if he was a kid in nazi germany
DrFrankenTween: lol
doctec: heil five!
llanwydd: not his fault
LiliLamont: He's speaks good english and he invites you up into his room, and you're so careful not to go to him too soon.... Egad...
Hemlock Stones: its Doctor Strangepope
cease: lol stones
Dexter Fong: Pope Benedict is Leonard Cohen?
DrFrankenTween: Lots of otherwise good people got cought up in the insanity - much like these days ;)
doctec: lenny!
LiliLamont: No, Bob Dylan.
llanwydd: cause the cops don't need him and man...
Hemlock Stones: Its Benny the Cross
cease: they expect the same.
cease: just watched season 2 of the wire, with proc's daughter
cease: ya['lll seen it?
cease: sh'es very good
cease: even if her father in law is evil
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
DrFrankenTween: nope, haven't seen it cease
LiliLamont: Haven't seen it. We should have. We have HBO.
Bambi: have you seen Jupiter's Dance website?
DrFrankenTween: Need it in the listings. Didn't know what it was
cease: it was never on here, at leastg on basic cable
doctec: i remember those episodes with kristen in it
DrFrankenTween: Seen it in the listings
cease: having the dvd is fine with me. the comments by the people about each scne is great
DrFrankenTween: Don't need it ;)
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood intones: "10:02 PM and late as usual, it's HoneySanchez, just back from Funfun Town."
doctec: we never really got into the series tho - i think our local vid rental place has it (yes, we still support local vid businesses, we haven't gone the netflix route just yet)
cease: the actors comments on proc's daughter were crude, but accurate
DrFrankenTween: Mzzzzz Sanchezzzzzz
cease: hi honey
Hemlock Stones: Hi Honey
ah,clem: hola
HoneySanchez: hello dear friends
Dexter Fong: Buenos tardes Honey
ah,clem: que pasa?
doctec: we've been renting dexter discs lately - the showtime series with michael c. hall, he's really good in it
DrFrankenTween: Buenos noches, even
HoneySanchez =)
Bambi: hola Honey
cease: i watched first episode but wont watch anymore
doctec: lili: if we see the wire 2nd season dvds, maybe we should rent 'em
HoneySanchez: I am having nightmares now about the evil emperor pope after seeing him with Bush
HoneySanchez trembles
LiliLamont: Why not, cease?
cease: hey, its that funny spanish language. i heard a bunch of pepole spekaing that somewhere recently
doctec: honey: talk about two delusional dudes!
ah,clem: lol Honey
HoneySanchez: indeed!
cease: it did not compelll me to watch, rather to avoid, lili
DrFrankenTween: Are you actually in Irving, Honey?
LiliLamont: Bush would induce nightmares by himself, but the two of them are definitely frightening.
HoneySanchez: no nino is mistaken or lying to protect me
cease: unlikely violent sopranos or the wire, there was more going on in both plays, in an almost shakespearean sense. dex is just gore to me
DrFrankenTween: lol cease (language)
cease: a strange joke
LiliLamont: Oh, I thought you were talking about the wire, cease.
cease: nok dexter, the killer guy
cease: i loved the wire, but it was certainly disturbing
cease: fond suggested i watch dexter, the killer. i will demure in the future
LiliLamont: Time for another bottle of water. I don't know if I'll make it through a gallon. does anyone know at which point consumption of water becomes toxic?
cease: fong
Bambi: weird, "Throughout the Solar system planetary changes are being noted, including a doubling of Jupiter's magnetosphere."
||||||||| 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 Bunnyboy gets out at 10:07 PM.
Bunnyboy: lo dere
cease: more than you'll drink, lili
cease: hji bunny
Hemlock Stones: it depends whats in the water Lili
Dexter Fong: Hi Bunny
HoneySanchez: hello bun
Bunnyboy: THE WIRE rocks.
doctec: lili is headed back upstairs again
doctec: poor dear
DrFrankenTween: Hey Bunny
Dexter Fong: Gee, whizz...a gallon?
llanwydd: It's like alcohol. when you start getting dizzy you've had enough
cease: just seen season 2, bun
Bambi: hey Bunny
Hemlock Stones: thatts called drowning, llan
Dexter Fong: quick afk

doctec: dex: yes, she had a doctor's exam tomorrow, she has had to fast and to flush out her system today/tonight
cease: the hjot tub scene is good
Bambi: rest well Lili! and good luck tomorrow
Bunnyboy: That's the longshoremen, right? I haven't seen the first 2 seasons. Caught most of Season 3, and all of Seasons 4 and 5.
doctec: she'll be back downstairs in a few minutes or less
cease: season 3 should be in my zip box soon
llanwydd: I was on a water regimen a couple of years ago. you could call it a water diet
cease: there were 5 seasons, right?
cease: bummer, llan
llanwydd: ever heard of the author, dr. batmangelidj?
Bunnyboy: Will Congress PLEASE outlaw Waterhoarding? A gallon is too damn much!
llanwydd: I swear that's his real name
||||||||| Merlyn enters at 10:10 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and hurries off to the Haberdashery Barn.
Hemlock Stones: didnt he play with Lester Gordon ?
llanwydd: actually I might try it again
Bunnyboy: (sings) When you walk through the garden, watch your back...
HoneySanchez: hello, merlyn
llanwydd: Hey Merl
Merlyn: there is too much of Ethel Waters, too
Merlyn: hello
Hemlock Stones: Hi Merly
doctec: hey
llanwydd: no he wrote a book titled "Your Body's Many Cries For Water: You're Not Sick, You're Thirsty"
Bunnyboy: TCM fans: NICK CARTER, MASTER DETECTIVE is on tomorrow morning, in the wee hours.
llanwydd: he was feature on art bell's show
Merlyn: that's not thirsty, that's sick
Bunnyboy: yo, Merlyn!
cease: no danger?
llanwydd: I tried it and it seemed to feel healthy
llanwydd: featured
Bunnyboy: brb. Bunnette drove up.
ah,clem: finding clean, untainted water is not possible whthout a still
cease: merl, i googled firesign theatre air america and got a google group post
ah,clem: and even then some drugs leak through the process
cease: i coulndt get into the firesign front page
llanwydd: but according to batmangelidj, you should take a pinch of salt with every glass of water and the salt should have no additives
llanwydd: and the water should be pure
cease: i assumed it was under construction
Merlyn: what are you talking about cat?
HoneySanchez: sea salt or kosher salt, llan?
cease: ossman on lionel today
ah,clem: so much of the water is tainted by radio active drugs
Merlyn: you mean the URL for the lionel interview?
doctec: and there was a story in the news today about how the plastic they used for the dasani / poland spring / etc bottled waters can taint the water with cancerous chemicals
llanwydd: either as long as it has no additives
Dexter Fong: Clem: Am or FM?
ah,clem: and so many other drugs
cease: bottles are being rippe off the marfket here
cease: no, merl, the posting to the firesign homepage site
Hemlock Stones: the city puts enough shit in the water without worrying about plastic bottles

LiliLamont: No, no, that's just the tiny print at the top of the screen.

llanwydd: I'm being facetious but serious

cease: no glycerin, no cry
Dexter Fong: Very clever Cat =)))))
cease: glad you liked it dex
Dexter Fong: Cat: I did...I did =))
LiliLamont: Curse them if they have. I was telling Doc that the rich can get and take whatever they want, the middle class have to suck it up without access to the good recreational stuff under threat, and nobody gives a rat's ass about what the poor do to themselves.
cease: gotta go see those vermeers again when i'm in nyc

Hemlock Stones: thanks to Clem and Bambi
Bambi: thanks Merlyn
Bambi: you too Stones!
Hemlock Stones: see you all, same Firestation, sam Firetime

Bunnyboy: I was shocked to discover that Melinda Dillon was the original Honey in the first Broadway production of WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?
Bambi hums, By the light, of the silvery moon....
Bunnyboy: Ben: As far as I know, no.
Dexter Fong: llan: Wasn't there a scene on the moore where Holmes disguises himself as a rock?
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood announces: "10:54 PM and late as usual, it's Principalpoop, just back from Elmertown."
Merlyn: isn't that where he "grew bolder, and bolder" [i.e. boulder]
Bambi: princep
Principalpoop: huh?
cease: it's poop
Principalpoop: hi bambi, all
Dexter Fong: poop?!
llanwydd: yes, dex, but what did that have to do with Malmsey
Bambi: hi princep too
Principalpoop: don't start cat, grrrr
Bunnyboy: llan: Sounds rather Goonish.
Merlyn: just a pun on bolder, llan
Ben Bland: Barbara Billingsley's son?
llanwydd: maybe that is the meaning, merl
cease: no shit, principal
llanwydd: I didn't get it
Dexter Fong: llan: Malmsey was diguised as a butt of Port
Principalpoop: the malseys were friends of the jabberwocky
Bunnyboy: Anybody watching HBO's JOHN ADAMS?
Bambi: I heard John Adams on HBO was very good ... haven't seen it
Principalpoop: a documentary of micro=brewerys?
Bambi: think Tweeny told me about it
Dexter Fong: Bunny: By the light was the *most* Goonish show they ever did IMHO
Bunnyboy: Bambi: It is, it is. Laura Linney is a treasure.
llanwydd: I'd love to hear the goon show someday
Bunnyboy: And that Giamatti guy ain't bad, neither.

cease: said it was gw bush's adams
Bunnyboy: llan: Well, here's one link:
Bunnyboy: http://www.thegoonshow.net/
Principalpoop: mary hartmans husband? mary hartmans husband?
Dexter Fong: CAT: Did you know Paul GIAMATTI is the son of the former commishioner of BaseBall (or BB) Bart Giamatti?
cease: hartmann's comments on it should be online somewhere
llanwydd: thanks, bunnyboy
cease: i'm not surprised, dex
cease: i ahvent read the bio of adams its based on but hartmann is a jefferson expert
cease: in terms of writing about him and feuding with others
Merlyn: a jetsons expert?
cease: lol poop
Dexter Fong: Cat" I know
Bambi: movies on historical events are always fun, even if not factual; which few are
cease: still fucking laughing poop
Principalpoop: ahh if you see hartmann, ask him if it is pronounced montichello or montisello?
Dexter Fong: I challenged him to a duel but he fled to the Louisiana Purchase Territory
cease: ask him yourself.
Principalpoop: where is he?
Bunnyboy: cat: What was Mr. Hartmann's harumph?
cease: boys on pot at luther dorm
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Principalpoop: the last harumph, super book
Merlyn: montichelloooooo
cease: adams fascist acts as pres
Principalpoop: ahh hamilton, or burr, it is cold
Dexter Fong: I didn't know Adams was iTALIAN
Bambi: our early presidents would be spinning in their graves at what the current regime is doing
cease: not adams, according to hartmann
Merlyn: That should be iTALIAN
cease: adams was of the unitary executive, kill my enemies ilk
Dexter Fong: Graci Merlyn
DrFrankenTween: I suspect they couldn't believe that they've not been impeached
Principalpoop: grazie
cease: if i didnt have the food i had last week, i would be insulted by that dex
Bunnyboy: I'm also reading David McCullough's book. Of course, it's a great companion to the series.
Dexter Fong: de nada
Dexter Fong: prego

Dexter Fong: por favour
DrFrankenTween: Liked the HBO John Adams series
llanwydd: what italian food did you have, cat?
DrFrankenTween: Found it quite inspiring, actually
Principalpoop: he was sorta monarchistic, check john quincy adams a little later, like gw and hillary now
cease: hartmann says its full of shit, bunny. but thats not for me to say
Bunnyboy: McCullough's original idea was to do a dual biography of Adams and Jefferson, but when he began reviewing the mountain of correspondence between John and Abagail, he settled on Adams.
Principalpoop: lady bird would have been a cool president, pat nixon? OMG
cease: read my blog. www.seemrealland.blogspot.com
Merlyn: yeah, John Adams was the first "worst" president
cease: restaurnat was called Cioppino's
Bunnyboy: They shorthand some accounts for dramatic purpose, in the series.
||||||||| 11:05 PM: überRegenbogen jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past year and a half!"

cease: keller will be hard pressed to make something better than that.
cease: lol dex
Principalpoop: heil uberegenbogen fromunderdehousener
überRegenbogen: howdy folks!
Dexter Fong: Ich bin Ein Greeter
Bunnyboy: One thing that works very well: When Adams falls ill in Holland, they never mention what his illness is. That's because the medical sages of the time diagnosed him with "nervous fever". You, as the viewer, don't know what ails him...because THEY didn't know what ailed him!
cease: this album is rich brew of revolting fermanetr
Merlyn: yes, but Adams was the first "worst" president, because he was the second one, and some people didn't like him
überRegenbogen ist irgendwo über dem Regenbogen
Principalpoop: I thought merv griffin was dead, i saw him in some clown outfit shaking hands with bush on tv

Ben Bland: Nite
Bambi: don't raise that name princep
Principalpoop: everybody must get stoned
Principalpoop: what name?
Bunnyboy: cat: Hartmann was probably upset by the way Jefferson is portrayed - a bit of a cold fish. Stephen Dillane, a British actor, is quite fine in the role.
Dexter Fong: Cure Warts????
Principalpoop: ahhh kudzoo,
cease: yes he complained about that, bun
Bambi: thanks Clem!
überRegenbogen approaches the pillared enterance of the Same mansion (four hours later)

Bambi: hi über
Principalpoop: oops night and thanks ahhh, clem
Merlyn: I'm going too, see you next week
Principalpoop: night M, did you ban that spammer?

überRegenbogen: hi Bam
Bambi: thanks for you help earlier Merlyn ... have a great week
Bunnyboy: Like a...little...whiny...bitch...

Bambi: this might help on why he felt that way?? http://www.commondreams.org/views03/0616-03.htm
cease: where can i get the last train to arthur c. clarkesvile?
überRegenbogen: you can sit here in the waiting room
Bambi: " Many Americans are suggesting that the Patriot Act (and its proposed "improvements" in Patriot II) is totally new in the experience of America and may spell the end of both democracy and the Bill of Rights. History, however, shows another view, which offers us both warnings and hope."
Bambi: or you can wait here in the sitting room...
überRegenbogen: Sri Lanka?
Dexter Fong: My audio went dead
Bambi: didn't get picked up when Clem dropped?
