||||||||| 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 October 22, 2009 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and announces "Announcing 'ah,clem', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 8:35 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern, the only time zone you'll ever need'
||||||||| Catherwood says "8:36 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, October 22, 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?"
||||||||| 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 cease gets out at 9:03 PM.
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies Dexter Fong inside, makes a note of the time (9:06 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
cease: wow, clem is playing one of my rarites and no one is here
cease: oh hi dex
Dexter Fong: Hello Dear Frienes

||||||||| 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 Bambi gets out at 9:11 PM.
cease: too far away for regular, clear reception, at least in 1990
Bambi: Hello Dear Friends :-)

Honey Sanchez imagines border patrol between the states.....may i see your papers please
cease: i hope that includes vancouver, bambi. its not that far from the border
Bambi: true...better to get to just keep going and going like the energizer bunny

Honey Sanchez: the native americans are attempting to create an autonomous state secceeding from the union if they do i will move there to the rez
Bambi: can't see any downsides except not being able to get there quick enough LOL
cease: jim hightower would need a passport!
Dexter Fong: Former President Bush stopped at the border trying to enter Arizona on his big Coming Back Tour
H. Stones: surely you mean get out of there Bambi
Bambi: heard that Honey

cease: you plan to see it now, llan?
llanwydd: nite everybody
Elayne: Night, Llan!
cease: what is that, el?
Bambi: nite llan, have a good week
cease: on tv?
Elayne: Brand-new, Cat. Six parter, extremely thorough. Running on the Independent Film Channel here in the US.
Bambi: how is the python documentary E?
cease: enjoy cairo, llan. the pharoahs liked it
Elayne: Very worthwhile, Fran.
Dexter Fong: baraka
Honey Sanchez: nite llan enjoy the movie
Dexter Fong: Hi Elayne
Elayne: It really commands attention, which is why I forgot to come here until now. :)
Bambi: I would imagine so...they should do one for Firesign Theatre too
cease: ok, we dont get that here, el. maybe it''ll come to dvd rental
Dexter Fong: Hey E; Did you go to Comic Con?
Elayne: There was one for Firesign, a lot of us watched it on my birthday a few years ago. It was called Weirdly Cool.
cease: yes bambi, but i suspectr weirdly cool is that
Elayne: Oh no Dex, I haven't been able to afford Comic Con in about a decade.
cease: are they still conning those comics?
Bambi: ah, that was the Documentary for them ... ok. I have seen it then LOL
Dexter Fong: AH, didn't know it was expensive
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Bambi: all those conventions are expensive :-(
Elayne: Oh sure Dex, if you're lucky enough to get a hotel room they run upwards of $200 a night (probably more like $400 now). And that doesn't include airfare and admission.
cease: i remember meeting ossman at sam longoria's wedding when that came out. and dave said if this doesnt make us famous, nothing will. i think he was right about the nothing
Mudhead: hiyElayneCatherwood plse get Elayne a Cosmo
||||||||| Catherwood gets elayne a cosmo.
Elayne: It's a big media fest now. In the '90s there was still room for ordinary comic people.
Dexter Fong: I ust be confused, I thought it was in NYC
Bambi: or your food and drink either of course
Elayne: There's one in NY as well, Dex. I thought you were referring to the big one in San Diego.
Bambi: or anything you want to buy on top of that
Elayne: New York now has two. Reed Exhibitions does an excellent con called the NY Comic Con, second only to San Diego, at the Javits Center.
H. Stones: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006qtlx
Dexter Fong: E: Read about it in the paper, didn't see a mention of location so supposed....
Elayne: And Wizard (the Maxim of comic publications) has just bought the Big Apple Comic Con, which used to be sleazy but otherwise pleasant and is now sleazy and expensive and unpleasant.
Elayne: We used to have a table at the Big Apple Con every year. Now that Wizard's running it, they charge $300/table for the weekend.
Bambi: figures lol
Elayne: The one you read about was probably the Wizard one, the Big Apple Con. No Marvel, no DC, a few big media guests. Eh. Not worth it.
H. Stones: I misght enjoy a Star Trek convention if i could go as the Borg
Elayne: Wizard has decided to counter-program its 2010 con exactly opposite the New York one at the Javits. So "con wars" have begun again in NY. Only the Wizard one is just so... so bad...
Dexter Fong: I'm going to Old Time Radio convention this saturday...they get less commercial every year
Honey Sanchez: I might enjoy the unconventional convention........
Elayne: I used to go to the Creation Star Trek cons, back when they ran the blooper reels. Always the highlight. Now it's all on YouTube.
cease: this must be in denver
Principalpoop: what must be denver?
cease: this clark wintergreen show
Honey Sanchez remembers going to the UFO convention

||||||||| Bunnyboy sneaks in around 10:08 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last month's "unpleasant incident."
H. Stones: i suppose Gilligans Isle is where they put out old sitcom stars to grass
H. Stones: Hi Bunny

Bunnyboy: Sorry. Channeling Maynard G. Krebs.
Dexter Fong: Put some duct tape on your pipe
Principalpoop: penisula
Dexter Fong: Tweeny Yes, twice
H. Stones: the only duct tape i have is currently holding the universe together
Bunnyboy: Shaggy's "zoink" is a blatant rip-off of Maynard's "work!"
