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 August 27, 2009 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Outside, the 6:45 AM uptown bus from Marshall pulls away, leaving Davey Eyenezz Sea Eye AAAY coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Davey Eyenezz Sea Eye AAAY:
I understand you've been handing out free food and water to a, ah, chick who lost her free food card." But, Senator, baby, she was starving. Young man, that's her trip. Take him away for, ah, re-, ah, -grooving.
Major Hit is on the screen, ah, now, with the daily up front report...!! Ciao, baby, this is Major Hit in the cockpit of the Enola McCluhan.....

Davey Eyenezz Sea Eye AAAY: Catherwood, take me to the pi eye lot lie yet.
||||||||| Catherwood takes Davey Eyenezz Sea Eye AAAY to the pi eye lot lie yet.

Davey Eyenezz Sea Eye AAAY: Shut off the gauss, Catherwood.
||||||||| Catherwood shuts off the gauss.
||||||||| "Hey Davey Eyenezz Sea Eye AAAY!" ... Davey Eyenezz Sea Eye AAAY turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 6:49 AM, I don't have to go yet!"...
||||||||| Davey Eyenezz Sea Eye AAAY steps in at 6:57 AM carrying an obsidian door knocker.

||||||||| Davey Eyenezz Sea Eye AAAY says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, Davey Eyenezz Sea Eye AAAY exits at 6:58 AM.

||||||||| It's 7:20 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| RedPillTweeny - dead from intense demonic possession
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies Firebroiled in through the front door at 7:42 AM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
Firebroiled: The True White Brother is coming home.
Remember what the Great Spirit said?
If we did what we were supposed to do,
and lived according to The Plan,
White Brother would finish his work in the East
and come back to us.

Firebroiled: My fellow Redskins! Speaking for the Great White Father in Washington and all the American People, let me say we respect you savages for your Native Ability to instantly Adapt and Survive in whatever Godforsaken wilderness we move you to. Out there. Sign here! .
No reason to complain.
It’s not so bad out there.

We still have our People and our Ceremonies and the Sun, Moon and Stars,

and the Sand

and the Black Stuff Coming Out Of The Ground . . ..

||||||||| Around 7:43 AM, Firebroiled walks off into the sunset...
||||||||| 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 ah,clem falls out at 8:21 PM.
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern, Mark'
||||||||| ah,clem departs at 8:22 PM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
||||||||| 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 Merlyn falls out at 9:00 PM.

Merlyn: ok

RightRevRoadkill: Still 100+ for highs

Bambi: indoor time for sure eh?
RightRevRoadkill: "It's a dry heat, though" ;)
Bambi: very humid here but a decade cooler (92 today) here
Bambi: lol
RightRevRoadkill: That's still pretty warm
RightRevRoadkill: And with your humidity, I'll bet the heat index is close to ours
Bambi: yes, and with the humidity ... downright miserable lol
RightRevRoadkill: We did get a short t-storm this afternoon, but it wasn't much more than a burst
RightRevRoadkill: It'll still be 100 tomorrow
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in at 9:10 PM, dragging Tor Hershman by one leg and asks "Can anyone vouch for this idiot?"
Bambi: we had a little bit of rain today too; not much but some
Tor Hershman: Howdy do, M & B & RRR
Bambi: hey Tor

Bambi: looks like Danny boy is meandering at 2mph ... taking it's own sweet time ... not complaining
RightRevRoadkill: Going to miss you guys, isn't it?
cease: this is my fave non-group album
Bambi: oops, 6mph ... tripled it's speed lol
Tor Hershman: Could be, Cease, perhaps to this swingin' number (Thanks to Steven Banks) which features Ted Kennedy.
cease: oh, the storm?
RightRevRoadkill: Quite the speed demon
Tor Hershman: oooops http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W47pc0D722A
Bambi: yeah, not much of a storm so far Cat
Tor Hershman: The first 02:08 is pure genius
Bambi: mine too Cat
RightRevRoadkill: Anyone think Caroline might continue the Kennedy Dynasty?
Tor Hershman: Could be
Tor Hershman: Hey! WhoTF is running CNI tonight?
cease: i have a gary snyder video paused in another window so i may have asked too much of the computer
Bambi: I think some are thinking Ted's wife from the articles; but Caroline might be a better choice if she's got some experience under her belt...JFK's daughter would be appropriate
RightRevRoadkill: Interesting that Ossman uses the Brit term for elevator - The gantry 'lift'
Bambi: Clem is Tor ... why?
RightRevRoadkill: Same as always, Tor. Mr. ah, cem
RightRevRoadkill: clem
Tor Hershman: Oh, Bam, he ain't in The Waiting Room

ah,clem: "we are cartoon characters, we can do anything"
Merlyn: hey E
cease: 2nd hour is really shitty. the volume comes on and off, like a firesign gag, only it was reception from distant seattle station that cuased it
RightRevRoadkill: Allen was one very quick wit. I'll bet they were fun
Elayne: Cat, Robin's doing the same with all our music. He's about halfway through getting rid of our old cassettes.

Bambi: master of amazination :-)
Tor Hershman: Mistress of Amazonation - now that WAS a movie

Bambi: real'er than life itself :D
RightRevRoadkill: kewl coincidence

Elayne: And tomorrow is a good day, now that the heat's finally broken.
Dexter Fong: Maybe bunny is doin' the Wolfman
Bunnyboy: It's a nightmare.
||||||||| Catherwood says "9:54 PM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs Bunnyboy by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
Elayne: I'm looking forward to sitting outside in Times Square. I still can't get over how that's become pedestrianized.
Dexter Fong: Back to Dallas with ye
Bambi: hey Bunny

Walter Ego: lol, cat
RightRevRoadkill: Yeah, "All Things Firesign" is also very good
Woody 1: I wish they would release Lawyer's Hospital on cd. I found Eat or Be Eaten on import.
Dexter Fong: Because if he lands somewhere to lay the egg, Sarah Palin will shoot him, ...or maybe Dick Cheney

cease: but only suggested.
RightRevRoadkill: Woody, this link has the track lists - http://www.amazon.com/Box-Danger-Complete-Nick-Casebook/dp/B001EOQV5Y
Dexter Fong: Good work Rev

RightRevRoadkill: It has great liner notes and pics inside the box
Walter Ego: like a zen meditation
Dexter Fong: better do a afkfr before next piece

ah,clem: the definitive answer is HE doesn't.
cease: there was alot of that going around in those days, walter
Woody 1: Thanks RRR. Missing shoe is great.
RightRevRoadkill: Like most art, it's supposed to be interpreted by the viewer
cease: exactly, tween
Woody 1: When I can afford it, I'll go for it.
Walter Ego: msntv2 has been messing with me majorly tonight

cease: you wont regret it, wood
RightRevRoadkill: Good point, cease
Dexter Fong: Clem: You're Right...That is the definitive answer
Bambi: mystery is part of the magic
Woody 1: I love Neil Young. He rarely explains anything. Not extremely fond of Fork In The Road but it rocks.

Walter Ego: then again I like bob dylan
Dexter Fong: Neil YOung is Canadian, he's cool
Walter Ego: so is joni mitchell but she sings better
Woody 1: I love Neil's voice when he tries to sing well. Mostly his softer stuff. He does hit some unusual notes.
Bambi: each artist has their appeal; and viva la difference!
Dexter Fong: That's cause she's a girl
RightRevRoadkill: Just out of curiousity Woody, is your name taken from jazz clarinetist Woody Hermann of Indiana?
Dexter Fong: or maybe Woody Allen of Brooklyn

Dexter Fong: or Dagwood's neighbor, Woody
Woody 1: No. Just a general misconception. Ha.
RightRevRoadkill: Ooook
Dexter Fong: Hable Espagnole Miss Conception
Walter Ego: kjhgfd
cease: i think neil has produced some of canada's best music, even if he has lived in cal for the last 40 years

RightRevRoadkill: General Misconception, isn't he the guy in charge of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan?
||||||||| Hemlock Stones tiptoes in around 10:38 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last night's "unpleasant incident."

Woody 1: He's awesome. One of my favorites is Goin' Back from Comes a Time.
Bambi: the msntv2 was the give away there, no?
RightRevRoadkill: Dex, I figured that might be the case when he mentioned MSNTV
Dexter Fong: Bambi: I *did* notice it but I don't pay much attention to all that techie stuff =))
Bambi: lol Dex
Walter Ego: I thought you'd figured it out a half hour ago
Woody 1: I'm late. Hi, Stones.
Dexter Fong: I was focused on the Charlottesville location
Dexter Fong: Thought it might be our friend from Raonoke
Bambi: speaking of which ... where is princep tonight?
Dexter Fong: I KNOWWWWwww!
RightRevRoadkill: That was my first guess, Dex
Hemlock Stones: Its not been easy to get online due to decorating frenzy
Walter Ego: I tried to go online about 7:30 and I got a message that said I needed an "update" and to click on and it would take about 2 hours
Dexter Fong: You're decorating your ISP?
Dexter Fong: How odd
Walter Ego: when the used to do that they would give a choice of "upgrade now or later"
cease: how do you decorate frenzy? in white?
Dexter Fong: Crazy Quilt colours
Walter Ego: not this time, so I clicked it on and then it started and I got a message saying it would take about 4 hours
cease: indeed, ego
Hemlock Stones: white mostly but also some grey and a nice rural green
Woody 1: All my favorite musical artists have cutting edge voices. Neil, Dylan, Zevon, Al Stewart, Byrne. List goes on.
Dexter Fong: (Notice the "ou" spelling)
Bambi: sounds like a straight jacket Cat?
cease: that would be redundant, dex
Bambi: like the nice rural green
Walter Ego: anyway, I got the strong impression that they wanted me to know I was at their mercy

Hemlock Stones: i did manage to get online long enough to take a poke at some American Humbug over Libya though
Bambi waves at Clem!
Hemlock Stones: drouoghts are rare here and froughts even rarer
Woody 1: Al Stewart's voice is just like his speaking voice. I love Radiohead too. Very bizarre.
Walter Ego: my favorite vocalist is jon anderson and he is quite unique as well
Dexter Fong: Hey lay off the Humbug, that's our natrual insect
Woody 1: Oh yes. Angelic high high voice.
Walter Ego: I don't know if he would call himself cutting edge but he does use the expression "alto tenor"

Hemlock Stones: although British, most of my singing hereoes were Americans so i did a lot of serious ligging in the early seventies
Woody 1: As I speak of Al Stewart, ever heard the song, Cafe' Society from Russians & Americans> Amazing jaming tune.

Walter Ego: dex are you thinking of the wrong stewart?
Hemlock Stones: In 1970 i met up with David Geffen when Joni was doing her first tour over here and complained bitterly to him that American artists always played London then buggered off onto the continent and never played any other UK citie
Woody 1: That was Rod.
Dexter Fong: You mean the Bruce Imposter, bastard to the king
