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 February 25, 2010 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Firebroiled steals in around 6:15 AM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last month's "unpleasant incident."

Now, please, everyone lock your wigs,

let the air out of your shoes
and prepare yourselves for a period of simulated exhilaration.

Everybody ready?

Let’s get in “sync”
for our Flight to the Future!


But I’d like to recommend WALL OF SCIENCE,
‘cause it’s my favorite!

Jest climb aboard that old YELLOW rubber line.
Well thankya, Partner. See ya on the Funway!

Yippee! Tie one on!
So long . . .


We know for certain, for instance,
that for some reason,
for some time in the beginnig,
there were hot lumps.

Cold and lonely,
they whirled noiselessly
through the black holes of space.

These insignificant lumps came together to form the first union

-- our Sun, the heating system.
And about this glowing gasbag
rotated the Earth,
a cat’s-eye amoung aggies,

blinking in astonishment
across the Face of Time . . .

||||||||| At 6:17 AM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Firebroiled!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
||||||||| Outside, the 7:08 AM crosstown bus from Hellmouth pulls away, leaving RedPillTweeny coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
||||||||| 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 dengue fever
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood sneaks into the room, and announces "Announcing 'ah,clem', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 8:40 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the Aviary...
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '" a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern'
||||||||| ah,clem says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, ah,clem exits at 8:53 PM.
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, February 25, 2010 - 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?"
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 9:01 PM and walter ego sashays out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
walter ego: waz real?
||||||||| Catherwood enters with BarelyonLine Fong close behind, mumbles something about disrupting his 9:02 PM tree-stunting plans, and dashes off to the anteroom.
walter ego: good evening, dex
BarelyonLine Fong: Good evening...llan?
||||||||| Catherwood enters with c's close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 9:03 PM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the vestibule.

H. Stones: i heard that the lights all went out .....
InflatableTweeny: What the name? Mass-a-a-a-sneeze
H. Stones: Gezundheit

Principalpoop: more customers
walter ego: got to make some really good friends. never had friends in massachusetts before
Principalpoop: depends on the county, just like new jersey?
H. Stones: i think the success of Avatars could mark the beginning of the end of using real actors
walter ego: not likely
walter ego: everybody wants to see real actors
Principalpoop: that was real actors, but transformed into ah, cartoons
InflatableTweeny: In a world of video gaming with Preditors in Afghanistan, it's the next logical step
c's: i thikn men will always want to see real women
H. Stones: some of the current crop of actors are so awful, it might be an improvement
BarelyonLine Fong: Yeah, wanna buy my blow up doll
InflatableTweeny: They should just tag our ears at birth, like good cattle ;)
Principalpoop: was it looker? the movie about that?
InflatableTweeny: lol Fong
H. Stones: the same will apply to live stage music, why send and musician when you can send a hologram.

Principalpoop: or like tangerine dream, the show was prepared and recorded before hand
BarelyonLine Fong: And I didn't?

BarelyonLine Fong: Llan: Isn't it the Lone Ranger Music...Schumann 4th Symphony perhaps?
c's: it sounds familiar, ego
Principalpoop: the theme song from gladiators in outer space?
walter ego: it's the soundtrack from spartacus
H. Stones: wasnt it Rossini, William Tell overture ?
Principalpoop: play it again ahh, clem
BarelyonLine Fong: Well since this came out before Spartacus I'd say Lone Ranger/Schumann
BarelyonLine Fong: Stones..You are absolutely right...My Bad
ah,clem: we interupt this program for an isnstant replay, lol
walter ego: what you are probably thinking of, Fong, is music that comes before that which is actually neither lone ranger nor schuman but the 3rd movement from Beethover's 7th Symphony
BarelyonLine Fong: Avaunt garde broadcasting
Principalpoop: wow
Principalpoop: tropical paradise, what a groove
BarelyonLine Fong: Stones you know your classical
c's: as i recall , ossman was a classical dj, austin a country western dj pre firesign
c's: i always preffered that term, "what a groove" to "groovy" which was cloying in its inception
walter ego: no, rossini is nowhere in the soundtrack. you are thinking of Beethoven's 7th
Principalpoop: i can name that sonata in 3 notes
BarelyonLine Fong: Proctor was a Gilbert and Sullivan man and Bregman a delta Bluesman
ah,clem: they all used to work for a living (re radio days)
H. Stones: a little, Fong, but i am very choosy, i like Schubert, Gorecki, Lizt, Mozart to name a few
BarelyonLine Fong: Poop: Name it
c's: they're all gilbert/sullivaniacs, listen to that piece they did on fools in space in revernce to them
Principalpoop: Lizt is not on my list
H. Stones: so you are feeling liztless, PP ?
c's: you can really hear the g&s influence is some of their more intense jokery such as sumatra
walter ego: well, my favorite is Sibelius but I acknowledge Beethoven as the absolute master
Principalpoop: i had too much concerto
BarelyonLine Fong: STONES: The 2 or 3 Op. postumus piano sonatas by Schuber are extraordinary
c's: they did a show with that famous g&s actor whose name i forget but they play it on fools
ah,clem: dark and dirty in there, bees and spiders
Principalpoop: sibelius is the new head of HHS
H. Stones: me too Walter, i like his tone poem, Swan of Tuonell and Night Ride and Sunrise
Principalpoop: you'll poke your eye out
InflatableTweeny: I'm sorry, Player, you have just entered The Basement
H. Stones: Finlandia is very evocative though
walter ego: stones, if you haven't heard his 2nd Symphony, I am certain you will love it

Bambi: with hot salsa and tortillas lol
Principalpoop: yum
c's: i'm surer you need a break, el
BarelyonLine Fong: Prolly Ledbetter Cat
walter ego: the very first time I heard that song, I thought of folsom prison blues
Clean Elayne: I got a lot of work done this week, Cat. Stayed until 7:30 last night, not even helping out the usual folks. I'm much better safe at home than sorry...
H. Stones: i saw Leadbelly play live many years back

H. Stones: i was very lucky, a big blues tour came over and i got front row seats, a truly amazing line up
BarelyonLine Fong: Clem Coulda been worse ie John . Cash
Principalpoop: so that is where rockerfeller and bush learned that
c's: ive been listening to the song Tennessee Stud a lot these days, the doc watson version, cash's is too slow for me
BarelyonLine Fong: E.
walter ego: yeah that Rocco feller
c's: i thougth it was a traditional tune but disovered it was written by a teacher in arkansas in the 50s who wrote songs to get his students interested in history
Principalpoop: changed it to what? Hank Williams?
H. Stones: anyone know the name Percy Mayfield ?
c's: the reason i like that song is the horse is described as "long and lean, the colour of the sun and his eyes were green" same as my cat Jazz
