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 June 03, 2010 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood leads Firelogged inside, makes a note of the time (7:53 AM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.

We’re docked and open.

Be sure to inflate shoes before crossing the water

Remember, the Rubber Lines are for your convenience and protection.
Thank you .

All Bozos and Bozo-ettes,
please clone under the Big Blue “B,”

up against the Wall of Science,

in the Mindless Fellowship Pravilion!.


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 . . .


Well, we were covered with a molten scum of rocks,

bobbling on the surface like rats.

when there was less heat,
these giant rock-groups settled down amoung the land masses.

During this extinct time,

our Earth was like a steam room,

and no one,
not even Man,
could get in.

However, the oceans
and the sewers
were simmering
with a rich potein stew,

and the mountains moved in
to surround
and protect them.

They didn’t know then

that living as we know it

was already taken over . . .


Animals without backbones hid from each other,

or fell down.

Clamasaurs and Oysterettes appeared as appetitizers

. Then came the sponges
which sucked up about ten percent of all life.

Hundreds of years later,

in the Late Devouring Period,

fish became obnoxious.

and Mosquitoes
collided aimlessly
in the dense gas.

Finally, tiny edible plants sprang up
in rows,
giving birth to generations of insecticides

and other small, dying creatures.

Thank you.

||||||||| At 7:55 AM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Firelogged!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
||||||||| Catherwood sneaks into the room, and snorts derisively "Announcing 'Tots', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 7:23 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the anteroom...
Tots: ...
Tots: Um...
||||||||| It's 7:30 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Tots - dead from Globner's disease
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| 8:49 PM: ah,clem jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past year and a half!"
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern'
||||||||| At 8:50 PM, ah,clem runs out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
||||||||| Dexter Fong enters at 8:52 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and scurries off to the Chapeau Manger.
Dexter Fong: Thank you Firelossed
Dexter Fong: oops Fire logged
Dexter Fong wonders if Firelogged works nights and sleeps days
||||||||| cease sneaks in around 9:00 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last week's "unpleasant incident."
Dexter Fong: Sneaky, CAT
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, June 03, 2010 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
cease: i see cni is back
Dexter Fong: Yes, I've got it on now
Dexter Fong: Nice
Dexter Fong: Cat: I've got some shows but not always sure of the dates or the numbers
cease: i wonder what this is on cni?
cease: i assume cni means clem and bambi are around somewhere
cease: this must be one of the unedited DFs
cease: doctec said they'd be selling these as downloads from the firesign site
Dexter Fong: Yes
Dexter Fong: to both statements
Dexter Fong: in fact to all statements
cease: i only have the edited dfs
cease: but i think they're on the bittorrent with that mass of other firesign stuff
Dexter Fong: Huh?
cease: you said your son sent you some hour hours? that must be from that torrent
Dexter Fong: As I understand it, when they syndicated to pacifica, they put together a package of 12 complete shows but there were maybe 6 or 7 or so other shows, many of which were excerpted for the DF DOUBLE ALBUM
cease: i think it has dozens of hours of firesign on it, saw a list once but never accessed it. it would consume my computer for days and i have almost everything on it, i think
cease: dex, i didnt know that
Dexter Fong: Ah
cease: i should ask earl jive, he engineered them
Dexter Fong: hang on I'll get my mast list
cease: have you been listening to rfo? ossman played a slightly different version of Dick Private from Roller Maidens a few days ago
cease: where is everybody?
||||||||| "9:14 PM? 9:14 PM!!" says Catherwood, "llanwydd should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as llanwydd enters and sits in front of the fireplace.
llanwydd: good evening
cease: aha
cease: hi llan
llanwydd: was nick exxon in the different version?
llanwydd: I like that character
cease: no just the dick private meets the girl with the gun in the car part
llanwydd: I see
cease: just a few words different from the album. i guess austin tightened it up in editing
Dexter Fong: hey llan
llanwydd: I'll see if I can't catch rfo on some other computer soon
llanwydd: Hey Dex, Hey Cease
cease: i hpoe you do, llan. some of it is very good. ossman reading poetry from the Tang dynasty is a highlight
||||||||| 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 Merlyn plummets into the garden at 9:19 PM.
cease: i assume all the shows will be archived on the site so you'l be able to hear them all
llanwydd: no kidding? does he read it in chinese?
Merlyn: hey all
llanwydd: Hey Merlyn
Dexter Fong: Hi Merlyn
cease: its amazing how many skits they have in DF compared to Hour Hour which only ended 2 monthes before DF started
cease: they really did a lot of writing for this. HH is much more just hanging out, plus a lot of music and echo from Jive
cease: hi merl
Dexter Fong: Cat: I believe also they got a lot better at improv, at being able to segue to something else when an improv began to lose steam as it were
llanwydd: I wonder how many people thought the show was called Our Hour
cease: a lot, llan
cease: its possible dex, but the change on 2 monthes sounds like 2 different groups, not an improved one
cease: merl, any more word about the lads selling their DFs through their site?
Merlyn: it's coming along cat, doc and phil fountain and I are working on stuff
cease: i guess that precludes the data disc collection bergman was talking about selling
cease: i'm on marc maron's mailing list. i enjoy his twice weekly podcasts and starting today, he'll be selling extra shows for $3 each
cease: i sent the maron email to doc. sounds like something the lads could do and make at least as much money as maron thinks he'll make
cease: if clem ever shows up, i'll ask him which DFs he has
Dexter Fong: I know he has one dear friend
Dexter Fong: or is it deer friend
cease: lol
llanwydd: a lot of people do
Dexter Fong: It take two to really have faun
llanwydd: it took me a while to get "deer friend"
llanwydd: you're witty, dex. but john greenleaf was wittier.
Dexter Fong: You have to wear camoflage and stalk em
cease: they did a new version of this a couple of days ago, updated. very funny
Dexter Fong: True llan, but Henry was more thoreau
Dexter Fong: Cat: Full cast?
cease: no, just bergman and ossman. same music though
Dexter Fong: Was this on RFO?
cease: i think rfo will only be those 2, unless the phils happen to be in town for some reason
cease: no, brand new version as of this week
llanwydd: I bet there will be a radio free ossman before long
Dexter Fong: Yes, I'm afraid so
cease: its great that they're writing new sketches even if only updated oldies, rather than just bergman babbling about what he read in the ny times
||||||||| Catherwood escorts Elayne in through the front door at 9:33 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
cease: hey el
Elayne: Evenin' all!
Dexter Fong: Hi Elayne
llanwydd: Hi Elayne
Elayne: Rather quiet this evening.
Dexter Fong: zzzzzzzzzzzzz huh!
cease: indeed
Merlyn: Hey E
Elayne: Everybody whisper, we don't want to wake Dex again...
Dexter Fong: Don't worry, I'm with it
cease: maybe dex is dreaming us into existence
llanwydd: I did that zzzzzzzzzz huh thing on the phone once just to try to end a conversation
Dexter Fong: Cat: Maybe to both statements
llanwydd: well, I left out the z's but it sounded very convincing
llanwydd: didnt work though
llanwydd: ertyuiokjhgfdcvbnmkjhgfdertyu
cease: nobody's Working
Dexter Fong: zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Merlyn: there's my favorite sound gag
llanwydd: just trying to stimulate some conversation
Dexter Fong: Here llan, try this cattle prod
llanwydd: I went out for curry this evening
Dexter Fong: Better take the other end
Dexter Fong: Did your curry find favor
cease: if this is a DF, it seems to be composed of various other shows
llanwydd: there's a gas station 50 miles away from me that sells curry take-out
Dexter Fong: I don't think this is DF
llanwydd: it's so good I make the drive every once in a great while
Dexter Fong: A live show
llanwydd: worth it for the price of the gas as well
||||||||| Catherwood leads Manny into the room, accepts a $3 bill as a gratuity, mutters something about 9:41 PM, then departs.
Dexter Fong: How Manny
Manny: LOL
Elayne: Evenin' Manny!
llanwydd: Hey Manny
Manny: Thrice as many as you thought there would be
cease: Hye Manny. Where's Womany?

Dexter Fong: and the moderately fa...there are three kinds of people here
Dexter Fong: Hey Poop
Manny: Raw, raw!
Merlyn: or is it the quik and the bread?

Principalpoop: the quick and the dead and the ugly, oops is that good and bad
llanwydd: there was a time when quick meant "alive"
Principalpoop: how do you write that music? ahh doo ahhhh

Dexter Fong: I love this episode of Over the EDGE
llanwydd: is this the ossman/austin version from pink hotel?
Principalpoop: fongs wit can cut us to quick
Principalpoop: the quick
cease: couold be, llan
Merlyn: I bay leaf so
Dexter Fong: Poop: That's wick, Fong's Wicks, they're longer for a good reason, make em yours
Principalpoop: my uncle was shot in the fray
Dexter Fong: My aunt was ravished in the selvage
Principalpoop: do they have frays anymore?
Merlyn: Mine was shot in the woods. The lumbar region.
Dexter Fong: Frayed so
llanwydd: lumber LOL
Principalpoop: a frayed knot
Dexter Fong: Planked dead center
Dexter Fong: right in the knowt hole
Dexter Fong: knot whole
llanwydd: a doctor could tell you where your fray is. you could never find it yourself
llanwydd: but you wouldn't want to get shot in it
Dexter Fong: It's not up there!! It's not up there!!
Elayne: Do bears get shot in the woods?
Principalpoop: wrong hole
Dexter Fong: Poop: I'm going to take a par on it anyway
Merlyn: Ossman interrupts himself
Principalpoop: they shoot horses, don't they?
cease: hi poop
Principalpoop: hi cat
Principalpoop: shoot
Principalpoop: here in the water closet, stealing nails, what does that mean?
cease: if you want meaning, firesign is not the place to look
Dexter Fong: He's disassembling the WC
Manny: Sometimes, the horse shoot back
Manny: horses
Principalpoop: i me mine, you can mean yours
Manny: And Jane Fonda
Principalpoop: neigh

Dexter Fong: Jane Fondas
Principalpoop: she only eats eucalyptus leaves
Manny: Why would a plant have to leave?
Dexter Fong: The oil spill
Principalpoop: rootless
Dexter Fong: A whole stand o timber from the Lumbar Parish is on the move

llanwydd: ents
Dexter Fong: Ents
Principalpoop: geshundheit
Dexter Fong: I win, I capitalized
llanwydd: lol
Manny: Mmmmmmm our nation's capital....
llanwydd: I wonder if tolkein deliberately stole the ents from the wizard of oz
Principalpoop: so we have ants and ents, what are onts and unts?
Manny: Where you can't tell the ACs from the DCs
Dexter Fong: Supply the missing first consonant and surprise your friend
Principalpoop: we did not have questions like that back in BC
Dexter Fong: Cat: He's dissing your province
cease: we always have questions here in BC
Principalpoop: it has been too long since I had a donut

llanwydd: catherwood, get principalpoop a donut
||||||||| Catherwood gets principalpoop a donut.
Principalpoop: it is not krispy kreme, take it back
llanwydd: krispy kreme is a strange name
llanwydd: in fact it's not at all appetizing
Principalpoop: i noticed that typing it
Principalpoop: sort of like smuckers
llanwydd: LOL
cease: this must be pink hotel
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Manny: Mmmmmmm snickers

Principalpoop: who are you snickering at manny?
Manny: Which one's pink?
Principalpoop: Have a cigar...
Manny: Catherwood, please give PrinP a candy bar
||||||||| Catherwood gives prinp a candy bar.
Elayne: Oh great, I just got "The lunatic is on the grass" out of my head, now it's back again.
Elayne: Thanks ever so.
Manny: Excellent album, P
Principalpoop: glad to help E lol
Manny: Hey E lol
Dexter Fong: Elayne: Back then, we were all on the *GRASS*
Manny: The Mune has been stolen!
llanwydd: I've had a Caravan earworm lately. don't know if you are familiar but they were a fine 70s band
cease: only when we couldnt get any hash
Elayne: Thanks to my iPod, earworms don't get stuck for that long, I can usually banish them at the next commute.
Dexter Fong: Elitist
llanwydd: not a bad earworm to have, really
Principalpoop: i cannot mention the worse earworm, or it will start again in each of you
Principalpoop: just thinking of it, got me, rats
Dexter Fong turns on white noise just in case
llanwydd: well, if I don't want it, I can go put on a different cd
Principalpoop: so i can say it?
Manny: There was a pretty good Night Gallery episode about Earwigs
Principalpoop: it's a small world after all
llanwydd: I used to love night gallery when I was a teenager
llanwydd: it came on at 11 back then
Manny: Yes, I saw the Disney exhibit at the World's Fair
Merlyn: the republicans are near-whigs
Manny: LOL Merl
llanwydd: lol
cease: wich one, manny?
Principalpoop: i saw it at disney land and world
llanwydd: no, the world's fair was in new york city in 1939
Dexter Fong: and 1964-65
Manny: Also true, but I'm not that old
llanwydd: there was another one later but I don't remember where
cease: i was at the one in nyc in 64, there were several disneys as i recall
Elayne: The Small World exhibit didn't exist until the World's Fair of '64-65. I saw it in '65 in Flushing Meadows (where Citifield is now).
Manny: Was at NYC in 64 and Montreal in 67
Elayne: I think it was the Pepsi Cola exhibit then.
Elayne: Yep, I went to Expo '67 too.
cease: montreal was my fave and i've been to 5
llanwydd: wasn't the montreal fair called Expo 67?
Elayne: Only two Worlds Fairs I recall ever attending.
Elayne: Do they still have Worlds Fairs?
cease: we had one here in van in 86
llanwydd: I wanted to go to expo 67 but we lived too far away in NJ
cease: indeed, el. there's one in shanghai now
Principalpoop: I think so E
Elayne: Llan, we lived in NJ too, I think my Dad drove up there.
llanwydd: but there was a girl in my kindergarten class who went to it
Elayne: I should look and see if there's a schedule. That's right, Cat, I remember hearing about the one in Shanghai.
llanwydd: I remember her showing some souveniers in class
cease: ive seen pix of some of the pavillions. very interesting architecture
Elayne: Since the turn of the 21st century the BIE has moved to sanction expos only every five years;[citation needed] following the numerous expos of the 1980s and 1990s, some see this as a means to cut down potential expenditure by participating nations. The rule may apply to all expos, or it may end up that Universal expositions will be restricted to every five years or so, with International or Specialized expositions in the in-between years for countries wishing to celebrate a special event.[citation needed] The most recent and currently ongoing universal expo is Expo 2010 in Shanghai.
Elayne: Sorry, that was a copy-and-paste from Wikipedia.
Manny was shanghai'd into this
Principalpoop: japan wants the 2020 world cup, and is offering to present 3D versions of the game in stadiums around the world, wow
llanwydd: I figured when I saw "citation needed"
Dexter Fong: I was at the 1939 Worlds Fair
Elayne: Robin and I are very psyched to watch the big game a week from Saturday, England v US.
llanwydd: nothing to apologize for. wiki's a great thing in my opinion
Manny: lol Dex
Dexter Fong: Why are you laghing Manny, I was
Dexter Fong: Cat will vouch for my age
cease: indeed
Manny: Two weeks ago, wasn't it?
Manny: RedPillTweeny
Dexter Fong: I was only three or 4 but I remember vividly, the "City of the Future" exhibit
cease: when i met dex i thought he was younger than me. boy, was i wrong
Principalpoop: that would make you, 2010-1939 = 152
Manny: Wasn't me, but a screen name I've used
Manny: Did Nino see the location?
llanwydd: I'm sure that would stick in your mind forever
llanwydd: Palisades Amusement Park is a very vivid memory of mine from the paleozoic era
Dexter Fong: Manny, yes...Austin,,,I knew who you were but if you didn't wan't to take responsibility, well, why should I show your hole cared
cease: i think theyhad one in frisco about the same time.
Manny: Catherwood, please give LL an arrow through head prop
||||||||| Catherwood hands ll an arrow through head prop.
Principalpoop: i cannot remember anything before 3-4 days ago
cease: ossman's mom told me about going to that one, with baby dave.
llanwydd: lol
Manny: Dig a whole deep enough, and everyone will want to jump it
Principalpoop: a cave is just a sideways hole
cease: maybe that's why he's so into world's fairs.
llanwydd: or give them a light and they'll follow it anywhere
Dexter Fong: For those of yoou listening to CNI, this is abolutely the FSTs most goon inspired show
cease: indeed, dex
Principalpoop: quite
Manny: BTW, Proc's just doing a reading of Don Quixote on Austin, so I'll probably miss it.
Manny: Volunteered to string cable of whatever, but he said it was _not_ FST
Dexter Fong: Don Quixote knows PHil Austin
Principalpoop: that is quixotic
Elayne: Robin (somewhat of a Goon aficionado) says he doesn't remember Milligan ever doing Peter Lorre... that was probably Sellers...
Manny: I'll help him chase windmills any time
Dexter Fong: Elayne: Tell Robin I don't remember any of the goons doing Peter Lorre
Dexter Fong: Sellers did many voices and characters but they were all originals
Elayne: Dex, Rob begs to differ. Sellers was a mimic, he did lots of impersonations (he says).
llanwydd: actually, dex, I remember hearing sellers say that dr. strangelove was based on a real character
Elayne: Or do you mean, just in the Goons?
Dexter Fong: Elayne: Perhaps we're tgalking (robin and I) at cross purposes...
Dexter Fong: llan: Yes, Hitler
Elayne: Have you crossed those porpoises again?
Dexter Fong: Elayne: Yes just in the goons
Principalpoop: leave that porpoise alone, get a doll phin
Elayne: A dauphin?
Dexter Fong: Catherwood, please give poop some doll phin soup
||||||||| Catherwood gives poop some doll phin soup.
Principalpoop: prince poop
llanwydd: no, dex. it was a photographer that sellers knew named weegee. he was american but sellers gave him a german accent
llanwydd: that's how he told it anyway
Principalpoop: pure clean bodily fluids
Dexter Fong: llan: That's one of the stranger "urban myths" I've ever heard....I know of weegee, seen a collection of his photos and such
Dexter Fong: can't imagine Dr. SL coming from there
cease: even i know of weegee
Principalpoop: a neighbor of henway
llanwydd: well, I don't think he would have said that if it wasn't true
cease: so called because he got to crimes so quickly, they assumed he'd used a ouigi board
Dexter Fong: Photos of dead bodies, down and outers, and snarky shots of the well-to-do
Dexter Fong: Cat: He cruised Manhattan with a police scanner
cease: indeed
cease: much more efficient
llanwydd: well, from what sellers said, dr SL had the same voice as weegee but with a german accent
Dexter Fong: And when the Police commisioner wanted him, he cast a giant Daily News logo on the mune
Principalpoop: is that like an airport scanner?
Merlyn: Now HERE is a hole that's deep enough: http://dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/05/31/dot-shot-sinkhole-in-guatemala-city/?src=mv
Dexter Fong: Is that the GREAT Guatamala hole, Merlyn
Principalpoop: a big hole
Dexter Fong: Yes, is the answer (as he reads the entire URL)

Dexter Fong: Veronica lake
Principalpoop: Cat likes the lakers
cease: and they're winning, but itsonly half time
Dexter Fong: Cat will be watching tonight as the Lakers get swamped by the Keltiks
cease: they're up by 9 at halftime, but still lots of time to lose
cease: as a kid in la, i had to suffer through a decade of the lakers losing to the celtics in the finals. theoretically, they'll win this time
Dexter Fong: CLEM IS LIVE
Principalpoop: the voice of ahh clem
Merlyn: well goodnight people, working on a flash game
cease: its the clem voice!
Principalpoop: good luck M, thanks again
llanwydd: I've never heard the voice of clem
cease: by clem
Merlyn: goodnight ah clem
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and snorts derisively "Announcing 'ah,clem', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 10:39 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the Aviary...
Principalpoop: thank you ahh, clem, bambi
||||||||| It's 10:40 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:

||||||||| Merlyn runs out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's Merlyn?! It's 10:40 PM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
Principalpoop: toad away

cease: rest well, clem
Principalpoop: good health cat, good luck

Principalpoop: big business here, that and sonics and walmart
Dexter Fong: And guns and ammo and pit bulls too
Principalpoop: ahh you do know roanoke

Principalpoop: that was on the coast in north carolina llan
Dexter Fong: That's raonoke Island, not Roanoke VA
llanwydd: oh, that's right
Principalpoop: same river, comes out there

Principalpoop: which canal?
Dexter Fong: The Love canal, where candace and I spent a weekend on the Love Boat
Principalpoop: ahh I am slow
Dexter Fong: SO ARE THE WATERS OF THE canal
Principalpoop: this was just fish I think, not a community
llanwydd: I always wondered where the Love Boat sailed
llanwydd: not enough to ask though
Dexter Fong: it's only about 700 yards long but takes a weekend to float down it
Dexter Fong: It's very viscous too
Principalpoop: sludge
Principalpoop: a good word that
llanwydd: how romantic
Dexter Fong: Cap'n Sludge
Principalpoop: unpretentious, just is what it is, sludge

Dexter Fong: llan: It's a common phrase, one that you'd hear about the dining room or kitchen
