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 September 18, 2008 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood intones: "7:52 AM and late as usual, it's Firebroiled(deferred), just back from Elmertown."
Firebroiled(deferred): Ha, ha, ho!
You bet, Dear Friends, it is going to be all right.
It’s going to be all right tonight, here at the Powerhouse Church of the Presumptious Assumption of the Blinding Light.
Yes, Friends, welcome to Pastor Flash’s our of Reckoning,
with Organ Leroy at his organ again, and the Fifty-Voice St. Louis Aquarium Choir.
I’m Decon E. L. Mouse.

But, Dear Friends in these days of modern time,
when you can’t tell the AC’s from the DC’s,
well aren’t we all yearning for someone who can turn on a little stopping power?

Dear Friends, I mean a smokey glass
Don’t you think I mean a lightning rod with which to chase these spooks away?
Don’t you know I mean our own Pastor Rod Flash!

He’s been up for a week, but he’s coming down!

Firebroiled(deferred): Maybe Up, 'Dexter Nice Guy'
||||||||| Firebroiled(deferred) is thrown out the window just as the clock strikes 7:56 AM.
||||||||| 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 Mudhead plummets into the garden at 6:31 PM.
Mudhead: And STAY Out!
Mudhead: Not Responsible!
Mudhead: Im greying out waiting for you, the viewers
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 7 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| It's 7:10 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Mudhead - dead from the fiddlers
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood leads ah,clem in through the front door at 7:58 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Mudhead close behind, mumbles something about disrupting his 7:59 PM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the Aviary.
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern'
ah,clem: bbl Mud
||||||||| At 7:59 PM, ah,clem vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 8 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| Bambi bounds in at 8:58 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
Bambi: hello there Mudhead
Bambi: anticipation ...
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and intones "Announcing 'ah,clem', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 8:59 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the anteroom...
Bambi: think clem is up now
Mudhead: ok
Bambi: currently Bobby Horne song
ah,clem: a "tune in" tune
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, September 18, 2008 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
Bambi: hey Clem
Bambi: we are in washington tonight ...washington va?!

||||||||| Outside, the 9:03 PM uptown bus from Vancouver pulls away, leaving cease coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
cease: ah, diesel fumes
Mudhead: smells like french fries

Mudhead: Bambi, tickle him!
||||||||| Catherwood walks up and announces "Presenting 'H. Stones', just granted probation at 9:09 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
||||||||| Principalpoop tiptoes in around 9:09 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last week's "unpleasant incident."
Bambi: hey Stones and PrinceP

||||||||| Catherwood sneaks into the room, and snorts derisively "Announcing 'DJTweeny', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:20 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the Aviary...

Principalpoop: time and fruit flies

Johnny Piano: "The quality of state of being actual or true."
Principalpoop: 80s? no no, i was out of the country
llanwydd2: I can't imagine them playing a stadium
Principalpoop: actually actual?
DJTweeny: Saw several shows at RFK Stadium in the 70's, Wake. Used to live in the DC burbs
||||||||| At 9:53 PM, DJTweeny hurries out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
Johnny Piano: OOPS..."quality OR state..." SORRY
llanwydd2: Carnegie Hall or Hollywood Bowl at biggest
Johnny Piano: Must get new bifocals it seems

Principalpoop: which side of a chicken has the most feathers? the outside...
