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 April 22, 2010 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "6:36 AM and late as usual, it's Firefestival-Frump, just back from Funfun Town."

FLASH [coughing] :

I’m all right, Roger.

Just a little argument with my co-pilot.

And guess what, Rog?

The little needle pointing to “E”
--and, while that’s always stood for Excellent in my Book,

I guess it means I’m out of gas.

You’ll have to sing me in,
my friends.

My favorite. Hymn 15--17.
Aghh . . . [fading]


Marching, marching to Shibboleth,
With the Eagle and the . . .
The Buckram and the Cord!
Sword! Prasing Zion ‘til her death!
Ha, ha!
Until we eat our last reward!
The flaming Ford!
Zion! Oh righteous Zion!
There is no one to blame!
For the homespun pies ‘Neath the cracking skies
Shall release the fulsome rain!
Shall release!
Shall release!
Shall release!
Shall release!

Shall release the vinyl rein!


I’m down! Thank you, Dear Friends, I’m down, I’m grounded, safe and sound, trailing clouds of glory, I’m down. And I’m marching! Yes, Dear Friends, I’m marching to dinner! ‘Cause Godamighty, I’m hungray! Yes! I’m hungray! Safe and sound and hungray!


We’re hungray!

||||||||| Catherwood says "6:39 AM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs Firefestival-Frump by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 5:09 PM and RedPillTweeny sashays out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
||||||||| It's 5:20 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:

||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| ah,clem tiptoes in around 8:35 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last month's "unpleasant incident."
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern'
||||||||| Around 8:36 PM, ah,clem walks off into the sunset...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, April 22, 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?"
||||||||| 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 Dexter Fong plummets into the garden at 9:04 PM.
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in and snorts derisively "Presenting '100%ChanceOfTween', just granted probation at 9:04 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
100%ChanceOfTween: Lo dere
Dexter Fong: Hey Tween
Dexter Fong: And hey Clem
Dexter Fong: Surprised no one else is here
Dexter Fong: A few minutes for just a few people

Dexter Fong: Hiya Cat

cease: the ash grove, an old firesign venue
sdfghjkl: it's probably named after dex
cease: the box says the complete danger casebook, but it doesnt include Danger Down Under and the Missing Yokes flick
Dexter Fong: Correct
Dexter Fong: And I think there are a couple Daily Feeds that at least touch upon Danger
cease: you're right, dex
Elayne: So has anyone sent anything to Chromium Switch, writing-wise?
cease: i listened to the feed tape recently and was surprised how many of the tales of the old detective originated in daily feed tales
Elayne: I keep getting invitations from them to do so, but my quill is a little rusty.
Dexter Fong: Wait a minute...let me consult the files
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 10:16 PM and Bambi bounds out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
Elayne: Hey Fran!

Bambi: great to see everyone from the dock
100%ChanceOfTween: Right you are :(
Dexter Fong: I'm on Medicare
100%ChanceOfTween: Hello Deer Person
cease: so is most of the civilized world, dex
Elayne: Someday I'll actually read the first two issues. They're still sitting in my online reading pile.
Bambi :-)
100%ChanceOfTween: It's still a 'collector's item'
Elayne: I think I need a Kindle or iPad or something...
Dexter Fong: Depends on what you mean by civilized
100%ChanceOfTween: Would buy it for friends
Dexter Fong: I used my iPad for kindling and started a three-alamer
100%ChanceOfTween: CDs these days just don't justice to what was 'album art'
cease: it was great to see bunnyboy's piece on the langley show
100%ChanceOfTween: BOD is _very_ well done
sdfghjkl: that's why I hated CDs when they first came out
cease: indeed, tween
Elayne: Stephen Colbert cautioned his viewers last week not to put their iPads in the dishwasher.

Dexter Fong: Wel;l is not exactly the Sistine Chapel

Elayne: Hang on Tween, I'll get my copy.
100%ChanceOfTween: I will let you know if I want my ceiling painted lol
cease: id say the sistine chapel is no david ossman
Dexter Fong: Maybe there's a merchandising angle here?
100%ChanceOfTween: I sold my copy for school books
Dexter Fong eyes Cat querolously
Elayne: Okay Tween, I have it in front of me. What am I looking for?
100%ChanceOfTween: Album art has been lost with CDs, let alone 'downloads'
Dexter Fong: Stones would *not* like that spelling nor would Tori
sdfghjkl: I wish I still had the 2 Places album cover
sdfghjkl: that was a fun read
Elayne misses album art (full size) as well.
sdfghjkl: if I remember right that was their only gatefold cover
Dexter Fong: Hard to clean a lid on a CD insert
Elayne: I thnk you're right, sdf...
sdfghjkl: unless you count Forward Into the Past
Elayne: Thank goodness for the White Album, Dex.
100%ChanceOfTween: It was like a fold-out book, E
Elayne: Oh. Mine isn't, Tween. Just a fold-out with the lyrics and little illustrations.
Dexter Fong: A papyrus
Elayne: Guess I don't have a first edition or whatever.
100%ChanceOfTween: Panoramaland 2000
sdfghjkl: well, of course their was Dear Friends as well but that was a gatefold out of necessity of course
Elayne: Only cardboard.

Dexter Fong: You were expecting Dura Wood 2000
100%ChanceOfTween: It's was like those old children's books

Elayne: The only Firesign album I don't have on vinyl, at least from the last century, is record #6 of Dear Friends.
Dexter Fong: Yippee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
100%ChanceOfTween referes to a pretty good Dennis Quaid movie
Dexter Fong: afkfr
Elayne: Although I couldn't swear to it, I think Boom Dot Bust may have been prior to 2000.
sdfghjkl: I never had the full DF collection
Elayne: I'd love to see the 4or5 put out special vinyl editions of their newer stuff. Never happen, of course.
cease: yes 99, el. i remember listening to while driving through saskatchewan in sept, 99
100%ChanceOfTween: Paul Krassner and Abby Normal thrank you, Dex
cease: i doubt there's a big enough market to justify doing it, el
Elayne: Ah well, then I don't have vinyl of all their 20th century albums. :)
sdfghjkl: some of the firesign albums I bought during the 70s didn't even have paper inner sleeves
Elayne: Cat, there isn't a big enough market to justify the CDs either. ;)
sdfghjkl: they must have been working on a tight budget
cease: box of danger hasnt paid for itself yet, so i'd be surprised to see anything else come out soon
Bambi: doing it themselves really is not as expensive as it used to be
100%ChanceOfTween: We need to tighten our beltways
Elayne: Oh, that's really sad, Cat. You'd think at least Box of Danger would have broken even.
sdfghjkl: I don't think Immortality was available on vinyl either
Bambi: can even do them as needed manually and sell them, themselves if they wanted to
100%ChanceOfTween: True, Bambi
100%ChanceOfTween: You don't need Capitol Records to put out an album
Bambi: we have a friend that has done that for a musician friend, even created the cover art and everything
sdfghjkl: columbia, you mean
100%ChanceOfTween: You need FST on Bill Maher :)
cease: it hadnt when i talked to judith in january. hopefully its sold lots of copies since then, but dont know
100%ChanceOfTween: Or Colbert
cease: indeed, tween
cease: i cant see colbert. but definitely maher
100%ChanceOfTween: The new album is...
Dexter Fong: the one that hasn't been played yet
100%ChanceOfTween: You think I'm kidding
Dexter Fong: Nothing like a truism to bring thing to a halt
100%ChanceOfTween: Want to debate with Maher?
Dexter Fong: Rather debate with nahler
Dexter Fong: Mahler
100%ChanceOfTween: Think George and Gracie
sdfghjkl: you'll need to resurrect him
sdfghjkl: he wouldn't object
Dexter Fong thinks gorge and Tracey
Elayne: I like to watch about 5-6 episodes of Colbert back-to-back courtesy of our DVR. Skip all the commercials and most of the interviews, it just flies by.
Dexter Fong: So does Time
Dexter Fong: How time Flys
100%ChanceOfTween: Debating Nancy Pelosi
cease: good idea, el. i often watch him and daily show on the computer
100%ChanceOfTween: I have given up TV
Elayne: I've done that occasionally when the DVR malfunctioned, Cat. My computer is way more hi-def than our TV will ever be.
Dexter Fong: What would be the topic Tween
sdfghjkl: tv or not tv
