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 December 10, 2009 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Woody1 inside, makes a note of the time (8:51 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Woody1: No one? Well, We'll just have to see the doctor about this. Bee back later.
||||||||| 8:52 PM -- Woody1 left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
||||||||| Catherwood stomps in at 8:55 PM, dragging ah,clem by the hair and asks "Can anyone vouch for this bozo?"
||||||||| Catherwood escorts Woody1 in through the front door at 8:55 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '" a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern'
Woody1: Oh. Until I get back, chew on this. http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B002HNTDFQ/ref=sr_1_olp_2?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1260496466&sr=8-2&condition=used
||||||||| 8:56 PM -- Woody1 left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
||||||||| ah,clem is kicked out just as the clock strikes 8:57 PM.
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, December 10, 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?"
||||||||| 9:01 PM: Mudhead jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past five minutes!"
||||||||| Bambi sashays in at 9:01 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
Mudhead: Woody???
Bambi: Hello Dear Friend :-)
Bambi: yep, looks like Woody was here early
||||||||| llanwydd enters at 9:02 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and scurries off to the Hat Pack Annex.
llanwydd: good evening
Mudhead: be gone ye, of loose talk and faith
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies cease into the room, accepts three dimes as a gratuity, mutters something about 9:03 PM, then departs.
Bambi: hey llan
Mudhead: and gather here my Dear Friends
Bambi: hey Cat
Mudhead: hi cat
llanwydd: I wonder if catherwood has a barn for all those goats
||||||||| Catherwood steps over to llanwydd and says "Someone mention my name?"
Bambi :-) Mudhead
cease: loosners castor oil flakes?
llanwydd: what does a castor oil flake look like?
Mudhead: whats it taste like?
llanwydd: shiny wheaties probably
cease: what does a malmburg in plano look like?
Bambi: me me me me
Mudhead: and why should we care?
llanwydd: you wouldn't recognize a malmburg out of plano
Bambi: the me me me comment was in ref to Clem's comment coming up about jelly bellies
||||||||| "9:06 PM? 9:06 PM!!" says Catherwood, "ah,clem should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as ah,clem enters and sits in front of the fireplace.
ah,clem: hi all
cease: hi clem
ah,clem: nice fireplace....
Mudhead: velcomin mine hair
Bambi: hey Clem :-)
||||||||| Catherwood escorts Merlyn into the room, accepts a jar of pennies as a gratuity, grumbles something about 9:08 PM, then departs.
Merlyn: hello
cease: hi merl
llanwydd: velcro in your hair?
cease: ah, the sword and the stoned
Mudhead: holds my wig
ah,clem: indeed it is
cease: the firesign's version of Holy Grail
Mudhead: please not the sword IN the stoned
cease: http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=9F568BAD1499C499
cease: someone on facebook turned me onto this today. great series of interviews with george carlin
cease: not long before his death
ah,clem: his performances were much better than the interviews, imho
llanwydd: I think I've seen one of the interviews somewhere
Bambi: hey Merl
Merlyn: hey bambi
llanwydd: now that i think of it, I was watching something called The History of the Joke
cease: well his performances were performances, these are just him talking about his life, but what a life
llanwydd: and he was wearing his latter day attire; black pullover shirt and black pants. very simple
ah,clem: an ex mime?
cease: that's like comparing a firesign show with their tv interview merl posted recently
llanwydd: carlin was always serious in his interviews
cease: as i'm going to see them twice on Whidbey, i'm hoping they'll be more interesting.
llanwydd: unlike groucho marx. he could never get serious
ah,clem: "hot water heater, what the hell for?"
cease: have you talked to any of the lads recently, merl?
Merlyn: no car
Merlyn: cat*
Merlyn: my mother the cat
llanwydd: lol
llanwydd: car on a hot tin roof
cease: speaking of firesign interviews, a good one with proctor in the new firesign e-zine
cease: tom gedwillo and phil fountain's project
cease: we were talking earlier about whether proc would join the other 3 in washington state. answer is no
Mudhead: East...come East!
Merlyn: he's got too much work in LA
llanwydd: down to three again and this time the one missing is proctor instead of ossman
cease: indeed
ah,clem: he is not yet ready for isolation, but he will be, lol
cease: it sounds like he's the busies of the 4 of them. i'd imagine that makes scheduling shows hard for them
Merlyn: but proctor loves flying
cease: busiest
cease: yes, he's the Flying phil
llanwydd: a john lennon song just entered my mind
cease: and he really loves performing. don't know how much that's true for the others
cease: former firesign archivist michael packer quoted lennon song, "a working class hero is something to be" on facebook yesterday
Merlyn: I think they all like performing well enough, it's just being able to making a living along with it
cease: i answered, "especially if you make more money than the entire working class"
llanwydd: hmm
llanwydd: your use of the word "isolation" brought the song of that title to my mind somehow
cease: proc's father in law is on tv as i type.
cease: a creature of great evil
Mudhead: Godzilla?
llanwydd: interesting. what show?
cease: show?
llanwydd: let me guess. LA Inlaw
cease: he's premier of BC (the equivalent of governor in your country), he's on tv all the time, unfortunately
cease: actually proc's daugther's father in law
llanwydd: my goodness. I had no idea
Merlyn: you mean his daughter's father-in-law
cease: he's our own ronald reagan
cease: yes merl
llanwydd: no his wife's husband's stepmother in laws' ex husband
Merlyn: on his cat's side
ah,clem: proc's father in law would be a bit old for that...
llanwydd: lol
Merlyn: at least that's straightened out
llanwydd: whose funeral is...today
Mudhead: whew
cease: i had forgotten how much bad music there was in the 60s. then i listen to a mushroom show
Merlyn: more coffins, warden?
Merlyn: we only hear the good stuff now
llanwydd: there was a ton of good and a ton of bad music in the 70s
Mudhead: only if we want to
cease: we only remember the good stuff from 67
llanwydd: sgt pepper, piper at the gates of dawn, days of future past...
ah,clem hums bonnie and clyde, were pretty lookin people.....
llanwydd: 67 was a good year
cease: only in the movies, clem
Merlyn: Sturgeon's law, 90% of everything is crap
ah,clem: and in the song
Mudhead: no, thats carp
cease: are you all snowed in? our snow storm is predicted for soon
llanwydd: can't think of a good movie from 67
Merlyn: we got some snow, not as much as feared
cease: i loved 67. expo 67, et al
Mudhead: easy rider?
llanwydd: oh, yes. the russian version of war and peace
ah,clem: we are to get a bit by Sunday
cease: merl, you always get lots
ah,clem: from the clipper
cease: great flick, llan
llanwydd: I liked the book better
llanwydd: it's my favorite novel
Merlyn: the Graduate, 1967
llanwydd: haven't seen that
ah,clem: coocoo ca choo
cease: i read that book in 67 was way into the russians in those days
Merlyn: but yeah, the top 10 movies of 1967 aren't so hot mostly
cease: i actually liked anna karenina better
llanwydd: it's the only russian novel I have read although I have read several short stories
cease: there is a LOT of great russian lit, llan
llanwydd: I got about 20 pages into Brothers Karamzov and gave it up
cease: newer stuff as well as old
llanwydd: Karamazov
cease: the first russians i read were solzhenitsyn, a day in the life of ivan denisovitch, and his fellow siberian prisoners Abram Tertz and Yuri Daniel, jailed in the krushev era
Merlyn: Leon Redbone Budweiser commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTdqig7qx7c
cease: tertz's The Makepeace Experiement and Voice from the Chorus and Daniel's This is Moscow Calling
llanwydd: I had to read ivan denisovich in high school but I only pretended to
llanwydd: I couldn't stand required reading
cease: i think i read it serialized in a mag
llanwydd: could hardly get through it
cease: i remember standing in line at a ride in disneyland reading it
cease: any of you know a song called Pass that Peacepipe?
cease: i know it only from a duckman episode, but carlin speaks of it as a well known song from his childhood
llanwydd: haven't heard that one
cease: it encouraged young george's love of language
cease: only dex is old enough to remember it, i guess, and he's not here
Merlyn: not familiar, cat (but a cat is a familiar)
llanwydd: it was actually a german missionary who inspired me to learn languages
cease: the intricacy of the song, that appealed to young george, is its recitation of various indian tribe names, a la A Shadow which you alll recall from last week's mushroom shows
llanwydd: I found I enjoyed it. then I tried learning spanish
llanwydd: but I'm best in german and french
cease: ive never had any facility for learning languages. which is why i became an engliish teacher
ah,clem: well spelled, old man
llanwydd: to you still teach or are you retired?
llanwydd: do, I mean
ah,clem: do you?
cease: retired, thankfully
llanwydd: no I don't
llanwydd: I'll bet you know Julius Caesar inside and out
cease: only the salad
llanwydd: lol
llanwydd: that's a staple in english classes
llanwydd: but I guess only in certain ones
cease: not english lit, english as a 2nd language, or 3rd, or 4tth...
llanwydd: I had to read several shakespeare plays in high school
ah,clem: Caesar was not english, lol
llanwydd: aha
llanwydd: ESL
ah,clem: shakespeare only marginally so
cease: oh, moby budd
cease: in one of the hour hours, they talk about doing this play, ripping off various books
cease: austin sounds almost appologetic for how much they lifted from various sources for this, but they had to produce a lot of plays in a short time
ah,clem: and a fine rip it is
cease: merl, are you bringing any recording equipment to whidbey?
cease: my dat is in the shop, hope it'll be fixed by then but this is not a good time of year for such things
ah,clem: fa ra ra ra ra...
cease: where are other regulars tonight? it's not even a holiday
ah,clem: the great paisley beast, he he
Bambi: ...ra ra ra ra
Merlyn: probably my video camera cat
cease: i just looked up pass that peacepipe on google and disover it was from gene kelley and fred astaire, norminated for song of year oscar
cease: the big one, merl?
llanwydd: yes, our attendance is noticeably sparse
cease: i thought it was a duckman original, but no
Bambi: wow that's amazing about peacepipe
Merlyn: I only have 1 cat; yes, there's a muppet show version on youtube cat
cease: i remember you had a big camcorder when we were in seattle in 99
cease: a great song, bambi
Merlyn: it would have to be rather old if Carlin heard it when he was young
cease: yes i noticed the muppet version on google search
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood intones: "9:51 PM and late as usual, it's Tweencicle, just back from Austin."
llanwydd: Hey Twen
Tweencicle: Hola amigos bozos
llanwydd: sorry Tween
Merlyn: hi tween
cease: greetings tween
Tweencicle: so, what's new in the world of Firedom?
cease: ive only seen the frist 3 parts of the 7 part carlin interview, but the advice steve allen gave him sounds like something someone would have said to the young firesigns
llanwydd: well, I understand the three are doing a show in whidbey island soon
Tweencicle: Got an email about some new e-journal
cease: carlin was on one of steve's afternoon tv show, and commented that the plum is sweet but its skin is bitter. allen told him that was a poetic observation
Tweencicle: It was very cool, the interviews they did with other comedians during Weirdly Cool
cease: tween, yes its excellent, great proc interview
cease: no all 4 of them will be in whidbey, llan. only proc isnt Moving there
llanwydd: I used to watch reruns of steve allen back in the 70s with louis nye and jose jimenez
cease: i had to complain to phil fountain about the broken up article, but that's no biggie
Merlyn: the free webzine sample is at http://mag.chromiumswitch.org/CSMagazine-01.pdf
llanwydd: Oh, OK. I didn't get that, Cat
Tweencicle: Bill Dana?
cease: that's ok in a print mag, but not in an e-zine
Bambi: bbiam
||||||||| Bambi leaves at 9:57 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..."
cease: yes cariln talks about the interegnum between paar and carson. bill dana was considered a possible replacement
llanwydd: my name...jose jimenez
cease: mort saul got a week, and carlin hustled his way onto that show
Merlyn: "Is that a crash helmet?" "ooooh, I hope not..."
cease: he got his first real management from lenny bruce. amazing
Tweencicle: lol, yeah, remember that one Merl
Tweencicle: biab
||||||||| 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 llanwydd2 plummets into the garden at 10:00 PM.
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| Mudhead runs out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's Mudhead?! It's 10:01 PM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
llanwydd2: here we go again
llanwydd2: ghjkl.
cease: hello again, muddy
llanwydd2: this chat room doesn't like my usual name, I guess
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Hemlock Stones inside, makes a note of the time (10:03 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Merlyn: I can get rid of the duplicate
||||||||| Merlyn aka 'The Reaper' has killed off llanwydd at 10:03 PM

doctecazoid: it's like a breath of fresh toxins
Tweencicle: lol
Elayne: Is the oil in Napalmolive extra virgin?
Hemlock Stones: unfreezing is where the problems start
doctecazoid: there are 77 virgins in every bar

ah,clem: he seemd to think we all should drop once a month, read some of his lab reports, a very funny guy
doctecazoid: i saw that russian rocket story
cease: what is all this animal imagery, does it have any meaning?
doctecazoid: bad sriral
doctecazoid: nothing like a failed nuclear missile test to ramp up the apocalyptic paranoia level
cease: the firesing were contemptuous of him as early as Electrician, if not earlier
Tweencicle: No doubt
doctecazoid: they were leery of leary
