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 December 25, 2008 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies H. Stones inside, makes a note of the time (5:11 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
H. Stones: Hmm no one here, must be a holiday of some kind, what a funny time of year to have one !
||||||||| It's 5:20 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...
||||||||| Catherwood leads ah,clem in through the front door at 7:52 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern'
||||||||| ah,clem leaves at 7:54 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 stumbles in at 8:03 PM, dragging Woody 1 by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this yo-yo?"
Woody 1: I's a waitin'. The last time Master Phil Austin had shown up here was Christmas or Thanksgiving a few years ago. Bee Back. Ouch. Wifee's calling.
Woody 1: Watch my puter freeze up. I'm not leaving for a while.
Woody 1: New pc sucks big time. And it's Pista(Vista).
||||||||| Catherwood walks up and announces "Presenting 'H. Stones', just granted probation at 8:12 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
H. Stones: Catherwood, i will be back
||||||||| Catherwood pretends not to hear H. Stones
||||||||| H. Stones rushes off, saying "8:15 PM? Mark Time is almost on! Where's a radio?"
Woody 1: Alright Madam. I mean Stones, Sir. I'll be in and out, mostly out and in. See ya in a bit. I'm trying to get hungry again before it gets too late. Oh the food. All who can afford it should give all 3 meals a day to the poor and homeless for the next 5 years, ar which time the streets will be full of unhealthy overweight individuals. That one's mine foilks. Ha ha.
||||||||| JollyOldStTween enters at 8:50 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and hurries off to the Chapeau Manger.
JollyOldStTween: Ho Ho Ho
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in and pipes up "Presenting 'H. Stones', just granted probation at 8:54 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
JollyOldStTween: wb Stones
H. Stones: Hope you have had a Happly Solstice, Hannukah and Xmas
H. Stones: Boxing day here now and my birthday on the 28th, so everything is rocketing by here
JollyOldStTween puts on his gloves
H. Stones: Chilly here but not cold
H. Stones: temperature to take a dive tomorrow night
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and announces "Presenting 'Bambi', just granted probation at 8:56 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
JollyOldStTween: and a pre-Happy Birthday to you :)
H. Stones: i understand your winter has been hard so far
Bambi: Happy Christmas!
H. Stones: Greetings and Hugs Bambi
JollyOldStTween: The upper Mid-West has taken a beating

H. Stones: well Tween, we had the coldest november and december in the UK in 30 years
Bambi: thankful for not havin to have to use much fuel today
JollyOldStTween: And people call it Global Warming
Bambi: we were down to 14 degrees just two days ago
H. Stones: i am counting my fuel usage here too
Bambi: it's really weird
H. Stones: Honey was down to -5 a couple of days back
JollyOldStTween: Of course, of the watery Jet Stream (or whatever) stops going North, Europe could turn into Siberia
Bambi: did you all tune in early to CNI? Clem is playing a great little christmas piece
JollyOldStTween: Yeah :)
H. Stones: its the gulf stream Tween
JollyOldStTween: A cat named Dammit lol
Bambi: yeah, very cold at times this year and before it was even winter officially too
H. Stones: if it loses energy and heat it could switch off
JollyOldStTween: It is a very good bit
JollyOldStTween: Right Stones
H. Stones: we usually get your kind of weather about 7 days after you do
Bambi: yes, it certainly is Tween
||||||||| It's 9:00 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:

||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, December 25, 2008 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
Bambi: well we need the cold to kill the 'bugs'
Bambi: humpty dumpty software house LOL
JollyOldStTween: Hard to get into the Christmas Spirit when it's in the mid-70s
H. Stones: dont tell Catherwood i clibed in throough the back window before he opened the room
||||||||| Catherwood walks right past H. Stones
JollyOldStTween: I miss the appearance of snow, but not the cold and mess
Bambi: lol
H. Stones: i love snow but not sleet and slush
Bambi: same here Stones
H. Stones: and i agree with Bambi, the cold seems to kill of the bugs despite what experts say
H. Stones: Evening Clem
JollyOldStTween: That's true. Getting tired of slugs competing for the cat food I put out
H. Stones: Sad to hear that Eartha Kit and Harold Pinter have gone skyward
||||||||| Outside, the 9:03 PM bus from Queensbury pulls away, leaving llanwydd coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
H. Stones: Hi llan
Bambi: I have heard quite a few experts spew some things that don't make sense lol
llanwydd: Merry Christmas!
JollyOldStTween: Evenin' LL
Bambi: Happy Christmas llanwydd
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 9:04 PM and cease bounds out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
JollyOldStTween: The pineless mellowship favillion
JollyOldStTween: Hey cease
Bambi: hey Cat
llanwydd: Merry Christmas, Cat
H. Stones: People ask me why i dont celebrate Christmas but if you have no family its all rather hollow and pointless

||||||||| Catherwood accompanies ah,clem into the room, accepts a $3 bill as a gratuity, mutters something about 9:04 PM, then departs.
H. Stones: Hi Cease
JollyOldStTween: I put a wreath on the door, and that's about it
JollyOldStTween: Hola clem

JollyOldStTween: You have to wish your hubby Merry in a chat room? Now that's geek
Bambi: oh, wait ... that was catherwood that got the $3 lol
||||||||| Catherwood walks over to Bambi and asks "Would you like something?"
cease: you're a lovely family
H. Stones: and what purpose would that be llan ?
Bambi: you are very welcome Cat
llanwydd: worst of all time, cat? that's pretty bad for vancouver
||||||||| "9:06 PM? 9:06 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Woody 1 should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Woody 1 enters and sits at the bar.
JollyOldStTween: Yeah, I heard the NW US/SW CN area had really gotten socked
H. Stones: Hi Woody
JollyOldStTween: wb Woody
Woody 1: howdoo? Watching Chrons of Narnica. Bee Back.

llanwydd: although I remember eartha kitt being referenced by monty python
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies Tor Hershman into the room, accepts a grimy quarter as a gratuity, grumbles something about 9:08 PM, then departs.
cease: they come, they go
cease: hi tor
Tor Hershman: Happy Humbug, All
H. Stones: He wrote, Waiting for Godot, The Caretake, etc
cease: how's it mending?
JollyOldStTween: Merry Merry, TOR
Bambi: that's so sad about Honey! does she have internet or is that out too?
Tor Hershman: Ain't Beckett a major gas?
Bambi: Happy Christmas Tor
llanwydd: merry christmas, tor!

JollyOldStTween: I frequently quote him
H. Stones: no internet up ther either Bambi
llanwydd: no, samuel beckett wrote waiting for godot
H. Stones: i call her up on my voip phone
Tor Hershman: "Ohio Impormtu" is tooooo cool
H. Stones: correct, llan, was just reading about Becket and got my wires crossed
Bambi: that really is sad Stones ... when you talk with her, please tell her we are thinking of her and hope things get better soon!
Tor Hershman: I also dig "End Game" if'in moi recalls the title correctly
JollyOldStTween: "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baronÕs cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences."- Ñ C. S. Lewis
H. Stones: Pinter was a cool but rather grumpy old guy, hated Blairs bunch of wankers
Tor Hershman: Man, that Beckett dude could take the quotidian and make it into ture art
Bambi: that is a wonderful quote by C.S. Lewis
cease: all the best to honey
Tor Hershman: Methinks Pinter t'were a bit of a 'inspired by Beckett' dude
H. Stones: i will pass it on, thanks Bambi and Cease
Bambi: unfortunately, our country seems to think they have the right to legislate morality (which they have re-defined) these days
H. Stones: they had a few things in common Tor
cease: sounds a bit too libertarian for me
cease: the dudes influenced themselves alot
Tor Hershman: Creeps ain't got a conscience - just an empty pit in there heads, full of pain and tryin' to cover the agnoy with others' discomfort
cease: what would firesiong be without their influences?
cease: ya'll read the interview tih the gqang in that gold mine mag?
cease: very current
cease: they spoke of their influences
Tor Hershman: Gad, Cease, we'ins all have a few things in common
Tor Hershman: How is it 'empty' and 'full' at the same time (Speakin' of moi's post)
JollyOldStTween: <> lol cease
cease: we'ins likely du
JollyOldStTween: Have a URL cease?
Tor Hershman: Well, is the glass half empty or half full? It's always 100% full. 1/2 full of liquid - 1/2 full of air orrrrrrrrr
cease: dont chall get the weekly fiesign review? or daily sometimes
cease: i hitnk its a google group
JollyOldStTween: Hmmmm did't pass the quote >>sounds a bit too libertarian for me<<
Bambi: I remember a similar colloqueism (sp?) in PA ... they would say you'ins
Tor Hershman: Full of gravity, or sound, or light, or neutrinos, etc
H. Stones: If you have only one of something you can't say it's the best of anything.
JollyOldStTween: picky picky, TOR
cease: the dude has al the old firesign mags, el's for esample and ealrlie ones
H. Stones: thats a pinter quote
Tor Hershman: Bam, that's yunz and yep, moi's 'tis from Southwest Pa
Bambi: very true about the glass part liquid, part air ... but not always 1/2 and 1/2 ;-)
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and snorts derisively "Announcing 'Bubba's Brain', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:16 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the anteroom...
Bambi: I spent about 1 1/2 to 2 yrs in the Carlisle area many moons ago
Bubba's Brain: Hey all.
Bambi: Happy Christmas Bubba
llanwydd: Merry Christmas, Bub!
JollyOldStTween: So, everybody ready to join the soup line next year?
Tor Hershman: You should read my blog, Bam. The "A Perfect-Plus Day In The Land Of Blood Drenched Enchantment."
Bubba's Brain: Merry Merry, y'all.

JollyOldStTween: Hello and Merry Merry, Hoosierman :)

Bambi: Happy Christmas to doctec and lili!!
JollyOldStTween: lol clem
H. Stones: Hi Doctec and Lilli

cease: h8i bub
JollyOldStTween: You are very welcome, Bambi & clem
Tor Hershman: Nope, Tween, firstly at (old) lock #8 and then #7 (On the Mon river) then locks #13 & #14 on the Ohio river
Bambi: does that make me an anarchist Stones?
cease: yes lets al be optimistic
doctec: but despite my slip-ups, i am still gainfully employed
cease: its less tiring
llanwydd: I'll guess. stones. caffeine is fascist?
H. Stones: Because Proper Tea is Theft !
JollyOldStTween: Didn't know they still used locks on the Ohio

Bubba's Brain: That is good to hear.... the latter.
Bambi: how true doc!
||||||||| doctec sashays in at 9:25 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.

H. Stones: Ultimately, everything is political, Cease

Bubba's Brain: Well, I'm glad you are still employed, and have no doubt that you are up to the tasks at hand, no matter how torturous.
Tor Hershman: Gad, I'm happy to have a parttime toilet cleaning gig

cease: recently saw masculin feminin and les carabinieri for first time. almost died of boredom
Bambi: so glad to hear that doc!
JollyOldStTween: That great news, Doc

JollyOldStTween: good one, Doc :)
llanwydd: I thought masculin feminin was truffaut. but I haven't watched french film in quite some time
Bubba's Brain: I haven't checked in wiht folks in a long time.
JollyOldStTween: 1984 with John Hurt is excelent
doctec: i would love to see alphaville remade - but it would have to be done right, by the right director - maybe david fincher or possible andrew niccol
doctec: but what do i know

Tor Hershman: The Big meatless Chilli, yum

cease: that sounds erotic, stones
H. Stones: a bit cold for eros methinks, cease
Bambi: that is so true Tween ... and they have been working hard at that
cease: jjst the sentence, stones
Bubba's Brain: It could go away at any time if the big projects end, but maybe by that time, they'll have more big projects.
doctec: movie remakes are like cover versions of pop tunes - most of them suck but when an artist takes an existing work and puts a new and interesting spin on it, it's both a homage and a new work that stands on its own
Bambi: Hi Honey!! Happy Christmas from Clem and Bambi!
cease: keth jarrets my back pages bettr than dylan's

llanwydd: I still want to see the remake of the manchurian candidate

Bambi: kewl Stones! Hope Honey is well and warm
H. Stones: still snowing and blowing hard in NM
