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 September 17, 2009 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Firebroiled sashays in at 9:14 AM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
Firebroiled: There must be some way out of this.

I’ll change the air,
that’s what I’ll do.

What have I got left on the Climate Control?

Dust Storm?

Tibetan Wilderness?

Land of the Pharaohs?

Land of the Pharaohs!
That sounds great! . . ..

Firebroiled: Of course!
Of course,

it was a jackel-headed woman with her eyes akimbo,

a King sitting sideways on his throne,

adrip with gold, chipped nose up-lifted
-- thusly!

All engraven that refreshes,
a tale told by an idiot,
and the head of a Fox!

||||||||| At 9:16 AM, Firebroiled runs out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
||||||||| Outside, the 2:06 PM crosstown bus from California pulls away, leaving RedPillTweeny coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
||||||||| It's 2:20 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| RedPillTweeny - dead from the common cold
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood leads ATweenyADayKeepsTheFascistsAway in through the front door at 8:57 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, September 17, 2009 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies cease into the room, accepts a $3 bill as a gratuity, mumbles something about 9:05 PM, then departs.
cease: shall i create a world?
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'llanwydd', just granted probation at 9:07 PM", then leaves hurriedly.

llanwydd: no, but I'll lend you a really, really dim
Principalpoop: now that was cool, fool
llanwydd: a fair compromise would be to curse your toe
Principalpoop: who are you calling dim? get dim kids outta my lawn
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood intones: "10:28 PM and late as usual, it's Bunnyboy, just back from Seattle."
Bunnyboy: lo dere
Principalpoop: hip hop bunnyboy
the Fool on the Hill: :)
cease: look who hopped in
llanwydd: Hey Bunny
Bunnyboy: CW: Back? I never left!
cease: you missed eykiw
Bunnyboy: Oh, well. They come....they go.
Principalpoop: you are here now, how could you be in two, well you know the rest
llanwydd: or is it only the b...
||||||||| It's 10:30 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Bambi - dead from intense demonic possession
||||||||| Hemlock Stones - dead from intense demonic possession
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Principalpoop: poor hemlock and bambi, the demons got them
cease: demons are geting deadly
llanwydd: the diseases are just getting worse all the time
Principalpoop: can't trust the birds or the swine...
Bunnyboy: But the health care...so much better!
cease: i think theve always been pretty bad
cease: diseases, not demons
llanwydd: well, fatal at least
Principalpoop: yes, we whipped polio's ass, and some others
cease: we have great health care here, but still lots of diseases
llanwydd: anybody ever wonder how they went?
llanwydd: I guess you wouldn't know
Principalpoop: how who went where?
llanwydd: I mean when you "check out" of firesign chat
Principalpoop: i never went backed and checked the cheese log, i suppose I could
cease: sounds like a haunted hotel
llanwydd: lol
Principalpoop: I am afraid Meryln has a script saying, pheww, that fucker is finally gone, for every time I leave...
cease: whats happening in seattle, bun?
Principalpoop: roanoke is quiet, still losing jobs around here...
cease: not likely, poop
llanwydd: I've been in roanoake
Bunnyboy: Not so very much, cat. Lame duck mayor, that's about it.
Principalpoop: i know cat, i practice self-abuse too often hehe
Bunnyboy: Washington State just declared a 9.2 percent unemployment rate.
Principalpoop: he should resign like Palin
llanwydd: I've got relatives in lynchburg, danville, cascade,
Principalpoop: ouch
Principalpoop: pretty neck of the wood llan
cease: why name a burg after a lynching?
Principalpoop: put fear in the hearts of the infidels, and blacks..
llanwydd: I've love to see something on a restaurant menu called Lame Duck
the Fool on the Hill: llanwydd has a pretty neck?
llanwydd: LOL, Cat. never thought of that
Principalpoop: yes, if you see his nape, olalala
Bunnyboy: RIP Henry Gibson, AKA James Bateman, AKA "Henrik Ibsen".
the Fool on the Hill is is one of those moods
Principalpoop: we talked of him earlier
llanwydd: I've seen Mock Duck. Lame Duck would be a further step in that direction
cease: aka indeed, bun
Principalpoop: then you would want lame turtle soup too
llanwydd: or Moby Duck. That would be a big meal
llanwydd: LOL, Princ
cease: relavent to the origin of my name here. c. simril = cease imril
cease: and the duck came down with the word and we ate it
llanwydd: AHA
Principalpoop: you are related to emile from the food channel?
Principalpoop: i walked an emile for an ecamel
cease: i'm unrelated
Bunnyboy: I had a good ol' theatre buddy named Jim Bateman. Saw him in 1999 (after not having seen him for 6 or 7 years), coincidentally, at Seattle Center, the same afternoon I met cat, Doc, Tiny, et. al. , before the FST's show at the Bagley Wright.
Principalpoop: we are all related
Bunnyboy: Sadly, Jim also passed, in 2001.
llanwydd: no, emile is the french internet service
llanwydd: used to be called email
cease: what a coincidence, bun
Principalpoop: its a small world after all
cease: its like the firesign made good things happen, not just predict them
Principalpoop: karma, i don't believe in karma, it is bad luck to do that
Bunnyboy: I was at The Moore last night (where the FST played, in 2005). Killer show by Collective Soul.
cease: if soul was indeed collective, would indeed be killer, bun
Principalpoop: is that where I astral-projected? I wondered where I went..
cease: i dont believe in anything, poop. its interesting enough just to observe
Principalpoop: if I believe you, does that make me a believer and would you believe me?
llanwydd: to believe is to say, "Maybe"
llanwydd: some people confuse belief for knowledge
Principalpoop: but what do we really know?
llanwydd: well, it's more like to say "Probably"
llanwydd: but certainly not "Definitely"
Principalpoop: guess
cease: the word has multiple meanings
Principalpoop: no, no, cannot allow that
llanwydd: sure
Bunnyboy: There are no generalizations, including this one.
Bunnyboy: Fnord.
Principalpoop: a word must mean what it means
cease: i believe the firesign are the best comedy group ever vs i believe in astrology sound related, but are different things
llanwydd: I have a friend who teaches philosophy at villanova. I should invite him to this discussion
Bunnyboy: I better rustle the grubs. Chow!
||||||||| At 10:49 PM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Bunnyboy!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
cease: off yuo rustle, bun
llanwydd: Nite Bunnyboy
Principalpoop: can he quote firesign? if not, he has nothing to add
Principalpoop: bon ap night bunny
cease: who?
Principalpoop: mister P. Villanova
cease: i dont thikn people drop by here to add anything to anything
Principalpoop: sure they do, and to drink from the well
llanwydd: you don't think or you don't believe?
cease: the number of people who appreciate firesign is so small, its best not to make it samller
llanwydd: I think, therfore I am. So I better not believe or I'll die
Principalpoop: ok ok, bring him along llan, katy bar the door
cease: speaking of drinks....
cease: i need to eat eventually, or my stomache will do my believing for me
Principalpoop: i want a Becks beer, if you have one cat
cease: see you here next week
Principalpoop: ahh going to eat, ciao canada man
||||||||| Around 10:52 PM, cease walks off into the sunset...
Principalpoop: see you too llan, all the best
Principalpoop: and fool, keep your clothes on up on that hill, don't catch a chill
llanwydd: Nite Princ
Principalpoop: nat nat
llanwydd: and Cat
||||||||| Principalpoop leaves at 10:53 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..."
the Fool on the Hill: Catherwood, get me a Leinenkugel
||||||||| Catherwood gets the Fool on the Hill a leinenkugel.
the Fool on the Hill: mmmmmmm...
||||||||| the Fool on the Hill says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, the Fool on the Hill exits at 10:56 PM.
||||||||| It's 11:00 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| llanwydd - dead from the yaws
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| 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."
