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 16, 2009 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Outside, the 7:11 AM bus from Philadelphia pulls away, leaving Firebroiled coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Firebroiled: so hop in your wife
and head in any direction on the freeway of your choice,
and we’ll see you in a couple of hours,
here at Ralph Spoilsport Motors,
the World’s Biggest,

here in the City of Fine Music.
Thanks for the insurrection,
and now back to our morning concert of afternoon showtime favorites

-- the Magic Bowl movement from Symphony in C Minus by Johann Amadeus Matetsky Fong.

Firebroiled: Gentlemen, gentlemen!
I won’t take any more credit for this Victory than is necessary.
Lord Kitchener
did not -- nay,
will not -- die in vain,

Grid Willing. [Over applause]
Gentlemen, gentlemen!
I as Leader will use Power like a drum
and Leadership like a violin.
Pick out any Idea.
Compare Ideas.
With the One Idea left you have no Doubt,
and without a Doubt
we have Enthusiasm!

Firebroiled: The Future Fair!

A Fair for All, and no fare to anybody!
Yes, it’s free!

Join the expectant crowd gathering now,
as we stop here on DUTCH ELM STREET! . . .

Come closer, folks.
Don’t crowd the wheels . . .

Doors Open!

Doors close in five seconds.

Firebroiled: Oooops, no time, five seconds
||||||||| "7:14 AM? I'm late!" exclaims Firebroiled, who then runs out through the french doors and down through the garden.
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood snorts derisively: "8:51 PM and late as usual, it's ah,clem, just back from Hellmouth."

||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, April 16, 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 ushers Mudhead into the room, accepts a grimy quarter as a gratuity, mumbles something about 9:01 PM, then departs.
Mudhead: Grid Willing. [Over applause]
Mudhead: Firebroiled o back to sleep

Merlyn: Nancy?
Elayne: No, my "what?' was about Catherwood. :)

Dexter Fong: Hello fellow travelers, going my way?

Dexter Fong: In order: Cat, Elayne, llan, Merlyn, Mud, and Tween
Dexter Fong: Is there CNI tonight?
cease: a little more than a year ago, i was campaigning to get the firesign on air amerca on the cruise. yesterday they were finally all on hartmann's show, but he's no longer on air america

Dexter Fong: And therein lies the rub
llanwydd: firesign has never had a great deal of publicity
cease: i think i saw an ad for box of danger in the new yorker.
Dexter Fong: If we could just get them on some kind of "reality" show
Merlyn: The KPFA show would probably have them on longer, and they podcast the show for free
Dexter Fong: "Schticking with the Stars"

Dexter Fong: Poop: They may have the wheat but they doesn't has the hit
||||||||| "10:47 PM? 10:47 PM!!" says Catherwood, "llanwydd should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as llanwydd enters and sits on the couch.
H. Stones: super fly guy
MartianTweenParty: You've seen the movie The Aviator (about Hughes)? Really like the 'McCarthyistic' secene with the Senate hearings
H. Stones: llan is back from the dead, its a miracle
MartianTweenParty: Not good, P (grain)
Dexter Fong: What a gemer...llan's been thrown out 4 or 5 times and he's back for more
cease: any good, tween?
MartianTweenParty: wb wb, LL
Principalpoop: ahh llan, mister yoyo
Principalpoop: talk, talk like the wind llan
cease: i guess this is where kenny hangs out when he's not on southpark
H. Stones: hes doing his spencer tracy impersonation
MartianTweenParty: I liked it. Thought DiCaprio did a fine job.
Principalpoop: i have not seen that
Dexter Fong: I liked the Aviator a lot too
Dexter Fong: And that was a fine scene with the Senate Committee
Dexter Fong: Taken from the records IIRC
Principalpoop: you are contagious llan, i was blocked for a few moments
H. Stones: was that, senile committee ?
MartianTweenParty: Cate Blanchett was outstanding as Audrey Hepburn
MartianTweenParty: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0338751/
Dexter Fong: Poop: That was a screen tes...er pass, that's why you were only blocked for a few moments
Principalpoop: give us time, we will fix those records, and all the records
MartianTweenParty: Might as well have been, after Huges got through with them, Stones
cease: i'll rent it then
Dexter Fong: Tween: But rather heavier
MartianTweenParty: One of my all-time favorite movies
MartianTweenParty: Blanchett?
Dexter Fong: Has anyone ever seen "Last Year At Marianbad"?
Principalpoop: i like time bandits
cease: didnt she play bob dylan?
MartianTweenParty: Time Bandits is great
Dexter Fong: Bob DYLAN THE Time Bandit?
cease: i may have long ago, dex. dont remember
cease: yes, a fun flick
Principalpoop: indeed
Dexter Fong: That's what the movie fosters
MartianTweenParty: Cleese as Robin Hood is perfect
Merlyn: too bad david rappaport killed himself, he was the only dwarf I ever saw who could act
cease: yes, kind of a python project
H. Stones: since his death, a silence has surrounded llans whereabouts
Principalpoop: ugh M
MartianTweenParty: Which one was he in the movie?
cease: lol stones
Dexter Fong: Merlyn: What about Billy Barty?
MartianTweenParty: lol Stones
cease: i should rewatch my old tape of that
Merlyn: he's well known, but I've never been that impressed with his acting
Merlyn: but he's better than most
Dexter Fong: How about Tom Cruise?
H. Stones: most was awful
Merlyn: the tallest dwarf in the world
Principalpoop: apparently they were trouble during the filming of the wizard of oz...
Dexter Fong: He's so short he has to jump up on Oprah's couch
MartianTweenParty: The "Personal Best" series from Monty Python is really good. Have Cleese's & Gilliam's
Principalpoop: the lollypop guild guys were good
Merlyn: the problem is that it's like having your dentist act, like in Plan 9
H. Stones: I was once watching Tom Cruise but he got beat up by some fags
MartianTweenParty: I highly recommend Cleese
Dexter Fong: Poop: You get that many ,little people together in a room and you got more trouble than a monkey on a rock
H. Stones: another time i watched tom cruise but i was distracted by some drying paint
Principalpoop: hehehe
cease: yes, if only the firesign could recylce their material as montarily successful as python
Merlyn: does this Cleese shop sell Cleese?
MartianTweenParty: Thought Cruise did a good job in Minority Report. Suited his style of acting (whatever that is)
Merlyn: Rain Man was good
H. Stones: yes Merl but its a little runny
Principalpoop: without a tv show, you are climbing up hill in modern society..
Dexter Fong: Cat: It's video killed the radio thing all over again
cease: why yes sir, it is after all, a cleese shop
Merlyn: same thing about suiting his style
MartianTweenParty: They threw cigarettes at him?
Dexter Fong: They threw buts at his buttocks
MartianTweenParty: LOL
Merlyn: lol dex
cease: the firesing never had enough vid product and they were never as good in "flicks" that would even inspire a tiny cult audience, not enough $$ to make anytyhing
Merlyn: "please fondle my buttocks"
Principalpoop: cruise and john revolta, give me a redford or spencer tracy please...
Dexter Fong pushes laugh track button again
MartianTweenParty: Python's humor is simply more accessable
H. Stones: ok Poop but i will raise you one W C Fields
cease: it was on tv
MartianTweenParty: Not disrespect to the Circus, but you have to actually think a bit about Firesign to get it
Dexter Fong: Catherwood, give Principalpoop a Spenser Tracy
||||||||| Catherwood brings principalpoop a spenser tracy.
MartianTweenParty: I liked Travolta in the movie Phenomenon
cease: if only on radio vs firesign, they would never have been as famous
Dexter Fong limps in with a set of Gracie Fields
cease: yes tween, and thats asking alot for most people
Principalpoop: not being on tv, it is amazing they are as famous as they are...
Merlyn: Now we have to come up with a "spencer tracy" drink
MartianTweenParty: Dunno, cease. The Python albums are pretty good, and you get the jokes without a great deal of thought
H. Stones: Python had a head start by getting a TV series
cease: yes indeed, poop
Principalpoop: it is because they are fantastic, and accessable
Dexter Fong: Merlyn: Star with 2 fingers of Rye
MartianTweenParty: Agreed, Stones. The BBC is really what catapulted them into fame
H. Stones: since Fawlty Towers cleese has done little of merit
Principalpoop: gilligan's island is famous, there is tv for you...
MartianTweenParty: This was, of course the TV generation. Young people weren't listening to radio theater
MartianTweenParty: Well, I still recommend his Personal Best (Cleese)
Dexter Fong: Was Gilligan's Island based on Gilligan's Travel by Swift
cease: youre right, tween
MartianTweenParty: lol P
Merlyn: I thought it was the Hey Gilligan Man!
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.

MartianTweenParty: And of course, Live at the Hollywood Bowl
MartianTweenParty: Great video
MartianTweenParty: lol P
Principalpoop: i guess all the surviror and reality are re-makes of gilligans island, i have not watched any
H. Stones: python pinched a few things from the late great Tommy Cooper
cease: i know him not, stones
Principalpoop: who will be live streaming from montery so i can watch?
H. Stones: search for him on You Tube, 6 foot 8, wears a fez, does terrible magic tricks and tells jokes that are even worse, one of the UKs most popular comics
H. Stones: he was the comics, comic

Dexter Fong: Cat talks to himself
H. Stones: in a damp, overcrowded island like this Tween its laugh or die
cease: it is what us fans want most, new firesign work
cease: the lads will be gracing us with this vast wit once more
Dexter Fong: Would that it were new "work"
H. Stones: i still get a good laugh out of Bill Hicks, theres a guy who never got the fame he deserved
Principalpoop: old or new, but with their current insight into what is going on weaved in
cease: dex, on facebook they all speak of actually doing work on this show
Dexter Fong: Bill Hicks and his Hot Licks?
cease: there will be original stuff
Principalpoop: sweet
H. Stones: no, that was Dan
cease: it owuld be too boring for them if not
Dexter Fong: Cat: That's wonderful news
Principalpoop: somebody going to videotape it? even if not live streaming? come on....
cease: i would rank the possibility of their show not havingf new stuff the same as the possibilty of the sun not coming up tomorrow
H. Stones: and i preferred Commander Cody, Dex
Dexter Fong: I mean...I'll take anything, reworkings of older shows etc
Principalpoop: i need llan there, making a bootleg...
Dexter Fong: Stones: I prefer Commander Mark Time

Dexter Fong: Like Knock Knock..Hey, the emporer is butt assed naked

cease: too much money made promoting stupidity
Dexter Fong: Cat: Stupidity needs more money
Dexter Fong: Harder to turn around
Principalpoop: you got that right fong, the veil of civilization is a frail veil, but it gets the job done...
