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 March 19, 2009 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Firebroiled waltzes in at 6:58 AM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
Firebroiled: My fellow Americans:
This morning, at 6:25 A. M.,
Pacific Standard time,
combined elements of the Imperial Japanese navy and air force
ruthlessly attacked our naval base at Pearl Harbor in the Hawaiian Islands.

I have conferred this morning with Congress
and the Chiefs of Staff in emergency session.
We have reached our rendezvous with destiny!
It is our unanimous and irrevocable decision
that the United States of America
unconditionally surrender!

And now, my wife and I would like to return with you

for the thrilling conclusion of “Private Nick Danger, Third Eye.”

Firebroiled: Have you been bailed out, lately??
||||||||| At 7:00 AM, Firebroiled scurries out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
||||||||| Outside, the 5:10 PM uptown bus from Texas pulls away, leaving StandishTweenatarium coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
StandishTweenatarium: Who's movie _is_ this, anyway?
||||||||| StandishTweenatarium leaves at 5:11 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 escorts Nobody Chatting into the room, accepts a grimy quarter as a gratuity, mumbles something about 6:56 PM, then departs.
||||||||| 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:
||||||||| Nobody Chatting - dead from the common cold
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood ushers ah,clem into the room, accepts an I.O.U. as a gratuity, mutters something about 7:54 PM, then departs.
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '" a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern, dear friends'
||||||||| At 7:55 PM, ah,clem vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
||||||||| 8:56 PM: ah,clem jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past five minutes!"
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: 'no "few minutes" tonight, bandwidth issues, thanks'
||||||||| Catherwood says "8:57 PM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs ah,clem by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, March 19, 2009 - 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 escorts ah,clem into the room, accepts a jar of pennies as a gratuity, mutters something about 9:02 PM, then departs.
ah,clem: CNI "a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9:15 eastern
||||||||| At 9:03 PM, ah,clem vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and snorts derisively "Announcing 'ah,clem', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:03 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
||||||||| llanwydd sneaks in around 9:03 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last year's "unpleasant incident."
||||||||| Outside, the 9:03 PM bus from Walden pulls away, leaving Dexter Fong coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
llanwydd: good evening dear friends
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9:15 eastern'
ah,clem: BBIAB
||||||||| ah,clem departs at 9:04 PM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
llanwydd: I wish I could remember last year's unpleasant incident as easily as catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood ignores llanwydd
llanwydd: somebody is playing a nasty trick on me
||||||||| Catherwood walks up and intones "Presenting 'cease', just granted probation at 9:08 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
cease: hi all
llanwydd: all? it seems to be just me. but "hi all".
||||||||| Catherwood walks up and announces "Presenting 'Bambi', just granted probation at 9:09 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
Bambi: hello Dear Friends :-)
llanwydd: hi bambi
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 9:09 PM, dragging Elayne by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this yo-yo?"
Elayne: Pip pip, and good evening all!
llanwydd: hi elayne
Bambi: lol llanwydd
cease: oh el. i thought you were in the uk
Bambi: hi Elayne :-)
Elayne: I am, Cat.
llanwydd: aha. pip pip reminds me you are in the uk aren't you?
Elayne: Robin got Dad's wifi to work earlier today, I had a couple jet-lag naps, and he's currently sleeping whilst I type.
cease: how can you be in, i mean....
Bambi: how's the UK treatin' ya?
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Merlyn inside, makes a note of the time (9:11 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Elayne: The good news is, no trouble driving on the left side of the road. The bad news is, the car's a little wider than I'm used to, so it's not completely hazard-free (I keep running into the side-curbs).
Elayne: Evenin', Brian!
Merlyn: hey E
Bambi: hey great Wizard Merlyn :-)
llanwydd: Hi Merlyn
Merlyn: yep, Nino knows you're in England
Elayne: I only missed one turn and got an oncoming car to beep its horn at me, but it was twilight and I was tired. Not too bad, all in all.
llanwydd: stay away from those narrow lanes, e. there are plenty of them
Elayne: And we shopped (Dad had very little in the house) so we're laden with tasty goodies!
Bambi: that's great E! often wondered if it would be hard to get used to the left side
Dexter Fong: Hi Elayne
Dexter Fong: and others also
Merlyn: I got facebook email from tom gedwillo, David O is supposed to be doing a show on whidbey island this sat
llanwydd: I'll bet you shopped at Tesco
cease: surprised and delighted to see you here
Bambi: kewl!
Elayne: It really isn't, Fran, the hardest thing is getting used to the car, not the roads.
llanwydd: good guess anyway. best place to get groceries
cease: hows driving on the wrong side of the road?
Elayne: We did indeed, Llan. Although we'll probably check out the Waitrose tomorrow.
Merlyn: haven't sent it out yet, want to check first
Bambi: ah, yeah, that would make sense
Elayne: It's not that bad, Cat. The roundabouts are a bit confusing, all that "first exit," "second exit" stuff.
cease: yes i saw that merl. all the best to old dave
Elayne: But our GPS is happy, we programmed it with an English voice and now it finally gets to use that voice to give directions in England.
llanwydd: I miss england. got to get back there someday
Merlyn: is that like "first floor" "second floor" confusion?
Bambi: LOL kewl E on the GPS
Elayne: Not quite, Brian, but it's bad enough.
Elayne: Tomorrow and Saturday we're relying on public transit (train to London tomorrow, bus to Brighton on Saturday) so I probably won't drive again until Sunday when we see Robin's sister.
Merlyn: bambi, nino doesn't know where you are. Tell me and I can put it in the list
Bambi: the roundabounts are fun in NJ too
Elayne: But it's nice to be able to get errands done for Dad.
Dexter Fong: I cannot connect to or stay connected to CNI tonight..(Real Player) My problem or CNIs?
Elayne: Bambi, Jersey traffic circles are a piece of cake. That's where I learned how to drive after all. :)
Bambi: the small ones aren't bad, but the larger ones in congested areas are the pits
||||||||| At 9:16 PM, Dexter Fong vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
Bambi: talk about having to be prepared before you get there so you know exactly where you want to get off the roundabout
llanwydd: we have a roundabout in ticonderoga, but most people call it the monument
Bambi: try again, Dex ... JL just started streaming within a few minutes
cease: you made the uk so appealing, dex took off for there?
Merlyn: HEY BAMBI! where are you
Elayne: Fran, Robin knows this area like the back of his hand, so he's an excellent navigator.
llanwydd: I am from NJ originally but I don't remember any roundabouts except for one or two driveways
Bambi: likely in someplace different than Nino says but I like it
Bambi: kewl Elayne
cease: i dont know the back of my hand at all
Merlyn: Nino doesn't know - I want to add the IP address to the database
Elayne: After I left NJ they did away with a lot of the traffic circles and replaced them with boring old traffic-light intersections.
Bambi: I don't generally have problems with roundabouts, but I know where I want to go before I get to the roundabout
Merlyn: You near Manchester Elayne?
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood intones: "9:19 PM and late as usual, it's StandishTweenatarium, just back from Austin."
llanwydd: Hey Tween
StandishTweenatarium: this way to the Tweenatarium...
cease: hi tween
StandishTweenatarium: Good evening, sir
llanwydd: I got a notice when you logged on earlier but I was busy
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Bightrethighrehighre close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 9:20 PM tree-stunting plans, and rushes off to the vestibule.
Merlyn: Hm, I also got cut off from CNI after a few minutes
Bambi: Hi Tween
StandishTweenatarium: Hmmmmmm - no CNI feed
llanwydd: hi bigh
StandishTweenatarium: Hmmmmmm - no CNI feed
Bightrethighrehighre: ...hey- I'm on time for a change....
Elayne: Brian, I'm nowhere near Manchester. I'm much closer to Brighton than any other big city in England.
Bambi: yes, it's there as far as I know, but use the main feed I think
Elayne: Hey Tween, Bight!
||||||||| "9:21 PM? 9:21 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Dexter Fong should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Dexter Fong enters and sits on the couch.
Bambi: hi Big
Elayne: WB, Dex.
Dexter Fong: Tween: I keep losing the feed
Bightrethighrehighre: Hi, Elayne, Bambi!
Merlyn: I was in Brighton for the world science fiction convention in 1979
cease: thought you'd moved to the uk, dex
Bightrethighrehighre: etceteras!!!!
Dexter Fong: Cat: Why? Did bush win the election again?
llanwydd: in those days I was only reading sf short stories
Elayne: We're going shops there on Saturday, Brian. This is a real vaca, we don't have any plans other than to see Rob's family, so we're taking it nice and easy.
Merlyn: lots of CNI connection problems tonight, Dex
cease: elayne was speaking well of the plae and then you took off
llanwydd: in fact I think I had a copy of the Hugo Awards anthology back then
cease: easy is good
StandishTweenatarium: hewwo again
Elayne is wondering if the word should be abbreviated "vacay" rather than "vaca" which, as you know, means "cow."
StandishTweenatarium: DSL carped out
Dexter Fong: Cat: No, porblems with CNI led me to shut down and reboot just in case
Bightrethighrehighre: good is easy....
Elayne: "Yes, Elayne's having a cow!"
StandishTweenatarium: hey Big
StandishTweenatarium: Been a while
Bightrethighrehighre: mad about that beef....
StandishTweenatarium: How's trikz in sunny AZ?
Dexter Fong thinks Elayne would be interested to know that the word "cow" n chinese means face
Bambi: Clem is checking the antenna; he almost didn't broadcast at all cuz he couldn't get a good connection. Then he got offline for a few, and got a good connection. But he's checking the antenna again.
llanwydd: catherwood, may I have some clouds in my coffee?
||||||||| Catherwood cloudss in llanwydd's coffee.
StandishTweenatarium: is it catching, Big?
Elayne: So Dex, am I having a cow or saving face, being on vacay?
Elayne: Llan, I wouldn't drink that coffee if I were you.
cease: laughing cow is a great cheese
Bightrethighrehighre: Sweedish tanitarium: mesquite bbq in th' stinkin' desert, 2night!!!!
Elayne: Ahhh, to have good English cheese again! I polished off a wedge of Wensleydale earlier.
llanwydd: catherwood will get it right some day
||||||||| Catherwood gets it right some day.
Dexter Fong: Elayne: Well, being cowed could be considered as losing face, so you be the judge
StandishTweenatarium: What a great name for a burger joint - The Laughing Cow
cease: careful with those cheese shoppes
cease: they dont always have cheese
StandishTweenatarium: Sounds yummy, Big
llanwydd: english cheddar is great
Elayne: Laughing Cow cheese is a staple in George Tirebiter's fridge at the beginning of Dwarf.
Merlyn: I like the cheese shops that are free of cheese
StandishTweenatarium: Moo
llanwydd: I had plenty of it when I was in england
Elayne: Ah Brian, the ones run by Michael Palin, you mean
Bightrethighrehighre: ....what's a meal for the mose is a snack for the rat, eh Flotsam?
Bambi: we had meatloaf and baked red/white potatoes tonight
Merlyn: Bergman is on facebook now, just missing Austin
Elayne: The mose?
llanwydd: it's certainly uncontaminated by cheese
Elayne: David O recommended Bergman as a Facebook friend for me a few hours ago.
StandishTweenatarium: A real meat & potatoes family
Dexter Fong: Free cheese...must be subversive..hafta send it back ta the govmint
Merlyn: me too E
Bightrethighrehighre: Elayne: er....uhhhh....MOUSE (damn typos)....
llanwydd: elayne, if you have never had steak and kidney pie, I recommend it. you can't get it in the US
cease: yes i saw that, merl
StandishTweenatarium: Didn't know they were on Facebook. Will have to remember that next time I'm in OS X
Elayne: Haven't had it yet, Llan. Probably tomorrow if we go to a London pub.
Elayne: Rob needs his bangers and mash. I'm trying to stay away from mash but it's everywhere.
Bambi: gonna leave chat so Clem has more bandwidth for the stream
llanwydd: most take-aways have it too
Bambi: see you all later
||||||||| Bambi runs out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's Bambi?! It's 9:29 PM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
Dexter Fong: But Bambi: who will keep us informed
llanwydd: see you soon bambi
StandishTweenatarium: You could buff a floor with all the rebuffering going on this evening (not to disparage Mr Coffe, who is doing a yeoman's job I'm sure)
Dexter Fong: Now there's nothing but silence
Elayne: I don't know how much takeaway we'll be doing, Dad doesn't have any menus 'round here. He doesn't eat a lot unless we're around (one of the reasons I'm glad we're here).
StandishTweenatarium: Sad they can't join the chat :(
Elayne: It's weird that my connection seems to be the only one without problems, maybe it's the time of day here.
Elayne: During the day this wifi doesn't have the greatest speed.
Merlyn: CNI just quit for people?
StandishTweenatarium: Maybe
Dexter Fong: Elayne: YOu mean you're getting CNI?
Merlyn: hey, it's back
Dexter Fong: not here
StandishTweenatarium: I am, but it's constantly rebuffering
Elayne: Dex, I'm not playing any sounds on this computer, Robin's sleeping in bed next to me.
Elayne: I didn't realize "buffering" was referring to CNI. I thought it was something rude. :)
Dexter Fong: Okay
StandishTweenatarium: Oooook
Dexter Fong: I think you mean buttering
Merlyn: it's about 2:30 AM where you are, E?
Merlyn: I think Elayne just rebuffed us
llanwydd: "rebuttering"?!
Elayne: I was referring to you losing connectivity, and now Fran having to log off chat. I think it's better to just chat in silence sometimes. :)
StandishTweenatarium: Well the feed _is_ toast this evening ;)
Dexter Fong: See me shine
StandishTweenatarium: So I guess buttering would not be inappropriate
Elayne: It's about 1:30, Brian. England hasn't gone onto British Summer Time yet.
llanwydd: lol
StandishTweenatarium: Ah, you're in jolly old Britland, eh?
Elayne: Remember, the "let's not wait till spring or Easter" idea to roll the clocks forward was a Bush admin idea.
llanwydd: ah, so that's why sometimes the difference is 5 hours and sometimes it is 6 hours
Elayne: I am, Tween. Visiting in-laws.
Merlyn: Then the earth IS round!
llanwydd: I thought I was just forgetting
Dexter Fong: CNI is back
llanwydd: at least the chinese won't fall offf
StandishTweenatarium: Buffer, buffer, who's got the buffer...
||||||||| Catherwood leads ah,clem into the room, accepts a $3 bill as a gratuity, mumbles something about 9:35 PM, then departs.
StandishTweenatarium: Kewl E
StandishTweenatarium: Hey clem
Elayne: Now the time difference is only 4 hours between Britain and Eastern, and 7 between Britain and Vegas. I have to remember these things to make calls to my family during vacay (aunt & uncle's 60th anniversary tomorrow, Mom's birthday next Tuesday).
Dexter Fong: Hey clem, weel done
ah,clem: sorry, bad connection, see you all next week
Elayne: Sorry Jimmy!
StandishTweenatarium: The electric bronco is bucking a bit this evening, eh?
Dexter Fong: Clem, my connection is fine
cease: ok clem
Merlyn: ok clem, thanks for trying
||||||||| ah,clem is defenestrated just as the clock strikes 9:36 PM.
StandishTweenatarium: OK, guy thanks so much for the effort
Merlyn: didn't have to toss him out the window for that...
Merlyn: Hey, if you're standing in a room and not jumping out the window, are you "fenestrated"?
||||||||| 9:37 PM: Principalpoop 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!"
Merlyn: like being gruntled
Dexter Fong: Unfenestrated
cease: poop
Elayne: "Defenestrated" has to be one of my favorite words, ever.
llanwydd: fenestrated is when someone throws a window at you
Principalpoop: fene who?
Elayne: Hey Prinpoop!
llanwydd: hi princip
Dexter Fong: Exfenestrated e.g. "She came in through the bathroom window
Principalpoop: why hello, is everybody haaappy?
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 9:38 PM, dragging LaBrea Man by the hair and asks "Can anyone vouch for this yo-yo?"
Elayne: Dex, isn't that only applicable to someone's ex-wife?
llanwydd: ging aus dem fenster
Principalpoop: hi labrea man
Elayne: ooh, a new name! Howdy LaBrea Man!
llanwydd: and ouvre la fenetre
LaBrea Man: Welcome to the future
llanwydd: hello again LBM
||||||||| "9:39 PM? 9:39 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Bambi should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Bambi enters and sits at the bar.
Principalpoop: hi bambi
Merlyn: hey LaBrea Man, ug!
cease: welcome la brea
Elayne: WB, Fran.
llanwydd: WB Bambi
Bambi: Clem said I could get back in cuz he had to call off the show. I see he came in to tell you all. We're sorry :-(
Bambi: hi princep; thanks Elayne, llanwydd :-)
Principalpoop: oops, good luck, thanks for the effort
LaBrea Man: Well, Merlyn, aren't we the gracious one!
llanwydd: He's sorry? He got defenestrated!
cease: thanks for the effort, clem and bambi
Elayne: Nothing to apologize about! You guys are doing this as a kindness to all of us, it's a lovely treat!
Bambi: hi LaBrea
LaBrea Man: Someone threw his window out the window?
Merlyn: I thought ug was the usual LaBrea greeting
llanwydd: yes it must be a compicated task
Bambi: lol llanwydd .. .I saw that!
Bambi: oh, ok ug!
Elayne: Can one defenestrate a window? LaBrea asks a good question.
LaBrea Man: No, No, No! Damn! Hoover Dam!
StandishTweenatarium: Nothing to apologize for. They've given you ridiculous circumstances to deal with.
StandishTweenatarium: Nothing to apologize for. They've given you ridiculous circumstances to deal with.
Principalpoop: fenny fenny fenny i got love in my fenny, and so I am doing fenn
Elayne: I need to have Robin draw a defenestration of a window.
cease: sorry i'm not feeling well tonight folks
cease: must leave chat and retire.
StandishTweenatarium: Verizon or whoever can apologize ;)
Elayne: I'm sorry as well, Cat. Get some sleep! I know I will.
Principalpoop: G. Edgar? I thought we buried him...
Bambi: thanks Cat ... hope they get on the closer tower that is only used by another company right now (that they are supposedly merged with) :-(
LaBrea Man: Oh, Please don't go!
cease: see y'all next week when assumably i'll be healthier
Dexter Fong: Cat: Feel better
Merlyn: defenestration is also a computer term, meaning to remove Windows
Principalpoop: night night cat and E, sleep well
||||||||| At 9:42 PM, cease vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
Bambi: thanks Tween lol
llanwydd: see you next week, cat
Elayne: LOL, Brian! I'd never heard that before! Brilliant.
Bambi: have a great night Cat
LaBrea Man: Ill be healthier?
StandishTweenatarium: Bell well, catman
Elayne: Yeah, I should probably close the 'puter up before I disturb the sleeping hubby.
Bambi: or at least a better night till you are feeling better
Principalpoop: didn't I blow your mind? this time...
Bambi: have a great time in the UK E!
Elayne: No guarantees I'll be here next week (when I'm back in the States), it depends on how my first day back at work goes.
Elayne: Thanks, Fran!
StandishTweenatarium: Have a great week all...
Dexter Fong: Enjoy ENGLAND Elayne

Bambi waves
Elayne: Bye!

StandishTweenatarium: maybe bbl
||||||||| At 9:43 PM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Elayne!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
LaBrea Man: Ooh! a Pop star!
Principalpoop: ahh most certainly, say hi to the queen for me
