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 February 05, 2009 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Firebroiled steals in around 7:36 AM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last night's "unpleasant incident."
Firebroiled: Oh! I’m terribly sorry, that’s not correct!
You didn’t “Beat The Reaper!”
Doctor, bring the Patient out and show the amphitheater audience
and all the folks at home just what he’s contracted. . . . .

According to my careful prosthesis,
this man has The Plague.

Thank you, Doctor.

You’re welcome.

Firebroiled: By the way, it's Billy Borrough's Birthday, have a Naked Lunch, if you will, . . . Dexter

Bunnyboy: One of my in-laws noted: "She has an ADAM'S APPLE!"
Principalpoop: i saw that too

Dexter Go FLA Fong oserves poop's bulging eyes and stomach
Elayne: I'm looking at Maddow right now. Nice elongated neck but, sorry, no Adam's apple.
Bunnyboy: "He has a prominence you could do a swan dive off of!"
Principalpoop: can you say laryngeal in mixed company?
cease: anyone paying attention to the ossman idea of having a firesign wikipedia?
Dexter Go FLA Fong: Maybe it was just a hard swallow
Bunnyboy: SFX: Twannnnnng!
H. Stones: one hard swallow does not make a spring Dexter
Bunnyboy: cat: I think it's an excellent idea.
Dexter Go FLA Fong: SKX: Splash
cease: i was within inches of rachel on numerous occasions during the cruise and i noticed no adam's apple;. just apple cocktails
Bunnyboy: But how? HOW to implement it...?
Principalpoop: a wicked sticky wicket wiki
Dexter Go FLA Fong: One hard swallow was probably wearing that trojan you found, Stones
cease: what i want to know is would it cover all the firesign work? there's an immense ammount
LiberTweenian: Sounds like a great idea
Elayne: She's on a personal crusade now to find out what cocktails the Obamas have been serving at White House cocktail parties.
Bunnyboy: Everybody been to the (relatively) new Chromium Switch website?
cease: it would be something for everyone here to want to contribute to certainly
LiberTweenian: Why you need a wiki
Principalpoop: like wikipedia, expert contributors
Elayne: Why aren't people using the Firesign wiki that's currently up there?
Dexter Go FLA Fong: Elayne: Black Russians
Principalpoop: i am an expert of nothing
cease: yes i saw it there, bun. also on facebook
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
H. Stones: Poop, fifty percent of it would be completely wrong
Elayne: Chromium Switch has every single FAlaFAl, except the pages I did as part of INSIDE JOKE. Once the weather is nicer and I start schlepping IJs to work to scan, they'll have those too.
cease: 1) i didnt know about it 2) if ossman wants to start a new project, i think the only appropriate response would be "you bed"
Principalpoop: i can handle that
Bunnyboy: Elayne: Where is said Wiki?
cease: you bet!
cease: there have lots of lexicons over the years, here and there
Elayne: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firesign_Theatre
Bunnyboy: You bed or mine?
Principalpoop: bed? that made my chat time-out hehe
cease: the idea is old. his enthusiasm for it is not
Elayne: I'm sorry, I'm just not getting why he wants to reinvent the wheel.
cease: poor sperring lead to mental demangement, poop
Dexter Go FLA Fong: whispers unxiously to poop "King Size bed"
Bunnyboy: El: Oh, yeah. That one.
Principalpoop: sweet
H. Stones: Dude
cease: you should read what he had to say about it, el.
Elayne: "That one"... hang on, you mean that page is actually Our President?
Dexter Go FLA Fong: and sour prawn good too
Merlyn: E, that's just a wikipedia entry; a firesign wiki would be a wikipedia about FT
Elayne: "Somebody broke the President!"
Elayne: Well, it's Wikipedia, we can FIX IT.
Principalpoop: when was the last time you schlept E? if I am not being impolite...
Bunnyboy: Well, that's more an overview. DO's take was a massive project, notating all the things that Firesign has parodied and referenced, over the years.
LiberTweenian: Anybody read Dr Firesign's Follies? I've just gotten through the first few chapters
cease: he's offering to spin tales about the origins of tons of his lines. this is not to be missed
Elayne: Sheems to me I schleep every night...
cease: ive read it, tween. a great documenting of ossman's career
Merlyn: E, wikipedia won't let us put in thousands of entries on fictional FT characters
Dexter Go FLA Fong: Elayne: Ah! Country living
Principalpoop: reading some of edgars letters, have to plow through them, but gems there
Elayne: Okay, good point Brian.
cease: exactly, merl
cease: yes edgar is a real gem
Merlyn: a couple years ago I asked IMDB about putting in Tirebiter's movies, but they said no
Dexter Go FLA Fong: What if we don't tell them they're fictional
Bunnyboy: Tween: I've got both of DO's most recent books on my pile. Still plodding through ATLAS SHRUGGED.
cease: there is a whole firesign universe wating to unfold online
Elayne: We definitely need a Definitive Online Biograph, or Something Like It.
Principalpoop: the fountainhead had more sex, wow
Elayne thinks it should be called the D.O. Biograph, but that's just her.
Dexter Go FLA Fong: More sex than who er uh what?
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and announces "Announcing 'Philbert D. Cartoonist', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 10:06 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the anteroom...
cease: he was offering comments on the tv/radio commercials they parodied, songs, etc
Dexter Go FLA Fong: D.O = David Ossman?
Principalpoop: hi phil
Elayne: Ah, now see, you said "sex" and woke Dex up!
cease: he's become increasingly autobiographical of late.
Elayne: Hey Philbert, welcome to chat! Have you been here before?
Principalpoop: hehe sex hehe
Dexter Go FLA Fong: Elayne: Not yet
Bunnyboy: Yeah, you could edit something along the lines of their standard "lost film" tag, like the one for LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT.
cease: hi phil.
Philbert D. Cartoonist: Greetings all!
Principalpoop: come on in, take off your skin, and rattle around in your bones
Dexter Go FLA Fong: PDC! Ive got PDC
Elayne: Exactly so, Dex. DO as in David Ossman and Definitive Origin and DO It Now.
Bunnyboy: "This is considered to be a lost film. Check your attic."
Philbert D. Cartoonist: No. First visit

Dexter Go FLA Fong: Cat: I don't know a Dr. Quick...I know a Dr. Fast

||||||||| Senator Backinaw Z. Buus sneaks in around 1:30 AM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last year's "unpleasant incident."
Senator Backinaw Z. Buus: As you may or not know the transition to digital has been delayed ubtil June if the President Barry Oh! signed it into law today.today.
Senator Backinaw Z. Buus: Resistance is futile or misspelled here if I am not mistaken. So why the delay. We haven't taken the Magic Crystals of Atlantis prisoners yet and it's too damn hot in Al Kut to corral the mummy on the subject, and he is pivotal. Here's the funny part if you apply too much imagination. But if you don't, you could become super dooper. Baby, hold on, it's comin to yah!
Senator Backinaw Z. Buus: (a) In General- Section 3002(b) of the Digital Television Transition and Public Safety Act of 2005 (47
U.S.C. 309 note) is amended--(1) by striking `February 18, 2009;' in paragraph (1) and inserting
`June 13, 2009;'; and (2) by striking `February 18, 2009,' in paragraph (2) and inserting `that date'.
(b) Conforming Amendments - (1) Section 3008(a)(1) of that Act (47 U.S.C. 309 note) is amended
by striking `February 17, 2009.' and inserting `June 12, 2009.'. (2) Section 309(j)(14)(A) of the
Communications Act of 1934 (47 U.S.C. 309(j)(14)(A)) is amended by striking `February 17, 2009.'
and inserting `June 12, 2009.'. (3) Section 337(e)(1) of the Communications Act of 1934 (47 U.S.C.
337(e)(1)) is amended by striking `February 17, 2009.' and inserting `June 12, 2009.'. (c) License
Terms- (1) EXTENSION- The Federal Communications Commission shall extend the terms of the
licenses for the recovered spectrum, including the license period and construction requirements
associated with those licenses, for a 116-day period. (2) DEFINITION - In this subsection, the term
`recovered spectrum' means -- (A) the recovered analog spectrum, as such term is defined in section 309(j)(15)(C)(vi) of the Communications Act of 1934;
and (B) the spectrum excluded from the definition of recovered analog spectrum by subclauses (I) and (II) of such section.
Check out these "notes", Catherwood. Later (4) The Federal Communications Commission is also in the process of determining how to resolve the interference problems that exist in the 800 megahertz band, especially for public safety. One option being considered for the 800 megahertz band would involve the 700 megahertz band. The Commission should not hold the 700 megahertz auction before the 800 megahertz interference issues are resolved or a tenable plan has been conceived.
"(5) The 700 megahertz band is currently occupied by television broadcasters, and will be so until the transfer to digital television is completed. This situation creates a tremendous amount of uncertainty concerning when the spectrum will be available and reduces the value placed on the spectrum by potential bidders. The encumbrance of the 700 megahertz band reduces both the amount of money that the auction would be likely to produce and the probability that the spectrum would be purchased by the entities that valued the spectrum the most and would put the spectrum to its most productive use.
"(6) The Commission's rules governing voluntary mechanisms for vacating the 700 megahertz band by broadcast stations - "(A) produced no certainty that the band would be available for advanced mobile communications services, public safety operations, or other wireless services any earlier than the existing statutory framework provides; and "(B) should advance the transition of digital television and must not result in the unjust enrichment of any incumbent licensee."

EXCEPTION: The strange and seemingly alien yet extremely timely and intelligent broadcast services of Catherwood A. Butler and William C. Phinnisnose Communications Transmission of U.S. BillVille Plus Limited and Consolidated."
||||||||| Catherwood walks over to Senator Backinaw Z. Buus and says "oh, fuck off Senator Backinaw Z. Buus!"
Senator Backinaw Z. Buus: Like them apples, Catherwood.
||||||||| Catherwood rushes alongside Senator Backinaw Z. Buus and yells "Stop typing gibberish, Senator Backinaw Z. Buus!"
Senator Backinaw Z. Buus: Surprise me, Catherwood.
||||||||| Catherwood surprises Senator Backinaw Z. Buus.
Senator Backinaw Z. Buus: Say this isn't a day jaw vous, or whatever, Catherwood.
||||||||| Catherwood says "this isn't a day jaw vous or whatever"
Senator Backinaw Z. Buus: Catherwood, must have power.
||||||||| Catherwood steps over to Senator Backinaw Z. Buus and asks "Do you have something for me to do?"
Senator Backinaw Z. Buus: And faith in Ted's holy name, Turner. How do you sponge bath that?
Senator Backinaw Z. Buus: Sponge bath me, Catherwood.
||||||||| Catherwood bathes Senator Backinaw Z. Buus.
Senator Backinaw Z. Buus: Seaweed shampoo!
||||||||| "1:40 AM? I'm late!" exclaims Senator Backinaw Z. Buus, who then hurries out through the french doors and down through the flowerbeds.
||||||||| Catherwood enters, and announces to all and sundry "It's 4:32 AM, time to change the log file and clean out unused rooms; please exit the chat room for a minute or two. Thank you for your patience."
