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 August 05, 2010 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood escorts foobar in through the front door at 4:40 AM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
||||||||| It's 4:50 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| foobar - dead from dengue fever
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood escorts ah,clem inside, makes a note of the time (8:23 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: 'no few minutes tonght, t-storm took out power, see ya next week'
||||||||| It's 8:40 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...
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Dexter Fong inside, makes a note of the time (8:43 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
||||||||| "8:51 PM? 8:51 PM!!" says Catherwood, "cease should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as cease enters and sits in the comfy chair.
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Bambi', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 8:52 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the anteroom...
Bambi: Hello Dear Friends
cease: hi bambi
cease: thunder is not your friend, eh?
Bambi: Can't stay long. Wanted to say hello but am on the iPod in safari and to hard to type and see the scroll at the same time
cease: see any lions?
Bambi: Well not in this storm or last night when lightening hit something very close
cease: rain promised here on saturday. it's been bone dry for a month
Bambi: Electricity has been out for 1 to 1.5 hrs so far ... Was going off and on like a crazy monkey before
cease: i was trying to do some weeding but my lawn is like cement now
cease: air is so bad we're told not to go outside today. many fires around the province makes vancouver air as bad as tokyo or la
Bambi: Like Clem is fond of pointing out ... Nature catches up with the odds in time...been in a drought here since beginning of June
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, August 05, 2010 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
cease: just watching news now, we're told to stay indoors and avoid exercise
Bambi: Heard that ... We have been in 90s-100s since Beginning of May!
Bambi: Some days have been over 100F and that's not counting the heat index
Bambi: It was 95F today before the storm with a heat index of 108F
Bambi: We have only had 3 day in the 80s the whole spring/summer and they were in the last 2 wks
cease: i avoid places like that
Bambi: This is not normal weather for here
cease: i try and avoid temperature extremes
Dexter Fong: Hello Dear Friends
Bambi: Well better shut it down now ... Don't know how long our power will be out ... Please pass the word ... Great to see ya Cat
cease: we had company from japan the past few weeks and they were enchanted with how cool van is compared to japan
cease: best of luck with the power, bambi
cease: hi dex
Bambi: We are fully on battery since power went out and storms not done yet either
cease: i wonder if today's chat will be as sparsely attended as last week
Bambi: See ya next week!
Dexter Fong: Night bAMBI

Dexter Fong: hOW DO cAT?
cease: looking forward to promised rain this weekend

Dexter Fong: S'kay Bambi, I missed you last week and I'll miss you again this week
Dexter Fong hums "I've been missing you so long
Bambi: This darn screen is too tiny to see all the page
||||||||| At 9:13 PM, Dexter Fong vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
||||||||| Catherwood leads Dexter Fong inside, makes a note of the time (9:14 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Bambi: ByE for now
||||||||| Dexter Fong departs at 9:14 PM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
||||||||| Dexter Fong sashays in at 9:14 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
cease: few people here last week, even fewer tonight
cease: i wonder where everybody is?
||||||||| It's 9:20 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Bambi - dead from measles
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Dexter Fong: Perhaps everyone's gone to the myune
cease: last week merl lamented that no one shows up for tuesday chat so i showed up this tuesday and no one was there
Dexter Fong: I suspect that twice a week is a bit too much for most folks
Dexter Fong: at least at this time of the year
cease: yes, 4:00 is inconvenient chatting time for me
Dexter Fong: as is &pm for me as I seldom get home before @7:so and then have dinner to make
Dexter Fong: So......the terrific chat drought continues
cease: indeed
Dexter Fong: yep
cease: and no cni
Dexter Fong: nope
cease: have you heard any of the hour hours on radio jive or the new jersey station?
cease: i'd put one on but i'm enjoying new tv
Dexter Fong: No, Cat, I don't think so although I have a few of them myself
Dexter Fong: New TV set, or tv show?
cease: our 4 year old tv died at the begininng of the week so had to be replaced.
cease: smaller and vastly cheaper but the picture is actually better. amazing
Dexter Fong: Jeeze, 4yrs is not a very long time for a tv to last....was it plasma by chance?
cease: no, the new one is plasma. the old was a samsung, something called DLP
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies Elayne inside, makes a note of the time (9:30 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Elayne: Evenin' Cat, Dex!
Elayne: Dex, I'm done with the three books you loaned me.
cease: hey it's el.
Dexter Fong: That's dissapointingly short life...I'd complain to Samsung
cease: i thought this was going to be the dex and cat chat
Dexter Fong: Hi Elayne
Elayne: No, this is the New York City October Planning Session. :)
cease: yeah, suddenly it began howling, like it was about to explode.
cease: i called the dealer and he said it was a flywheel and would cost as much to replace as a new tv
cease: happy with a.rod's 600th homer, el?
Elayne: He was from Shyster, Shyster, Flywheel and Shyster, wasn't he?
Dexter Fong: Flywheel...like hamsters?
Elayne: Oh Cat, it's about damned time. If I had to hear Michael Kaye intone one more time about the Changing of the Balls, I might have thrown something through my TV's flywheel.
cease: i think so, el
Dexter Fong: So Elayne, how's the Dresden FILES?
cease: too bad it was against my team. but we did win the first 2 games
Elayne: I haven't actually watched the TV show yet, Dex, but as I said I finished all the books you gave me. Not bad. Definitely "white guy's POV" but I wasn't expecting anything else.
cease: we rarely beat the yankees, or anyone except orioles
Dexter Fong: E: Who did you say that too....not me
Dexter Fong: to
Elayne: Yeah Cat, the Yankees played really subpar baseball those first two games, they deserved to lose.
Elayne: Yes Dex, that's the first thing I said when I came on tonight, that I read all your books.
cease: i never know if jays pitching is good or just lucky
cease: we hit lots of homers though.
Elayne: So, gents, let's talk October.
Dexter Fong: As the great Van LIngo MUngo once said "It's good to be lucky"
Elayne: Dex, you didn't make reservations for me and Robin and Cat at The Spotted Pig, did you?
Dexter Fong: Not yet
Elayne: I didn't know if you wanted Saturday or Sunday night for that one, Cat.
cease: i visited its website, el. looks like some good food
cease: i leave monday so either sat or sunday is fine for me
Elayne: Do you and your bride want to join us for that one, Dex?
cease: yes its close to the casa dex
Dexter Fong: We've got previous engagement LElayne
Elayne: Ah, okay.
Dexter Fong: Long standing weekend
cease: spoke to doc on phone over the weekend and they'll be picking me up from dex's on wed and taking me to your place on saturday, el.
Elayne: The West Village used to be close to the East Village, Cat, but I think they've done away with the crosstown bus (the M8) now due to budget crapola.
cease: so maybe i won't need a cell phone after all
Elayne: Oh Cat, it'll be nice to see Tom and Lili again!
cease: havent you seen them since 05?
Dexter Fong: E: The bus yet runs
Elayne: And I'll call the car service for Monday, just let me know your flight number and time.
cease: lili is taking classes to upgrade her skills and sounds very upbeat
Elayne: Oh, that's good, Dex, I thought that was one they cut.
Dexter Fong: Just another threat scare
Elayne: Cat, I may have seen them once or twice but it's been awhile.
Elayne: Dex, is it easier if I make the Spotted Pig reservation?
cease: i doubt they take reservations this far in advance, el
Dexter Fong: Makes no difference to me Elayne, once you''ve done Per Se, it's all downhill
Elayne: For the famous-type places? They probably do.
cease: maybe a month before, like most places i want to go to
Elayne: 'Kay, I'll do it, then. I'll let you know what I find out, Cat. What time, around 7 PM? Earlier, later?
Dexter Fong: Per Se is a minimum of 5 years
cease: actually Daniel is higher rated now, dex. and MUCH cheaper
Elayne: LOL, Dex!
cease: 7 sounds great, el
cease: i'll be hungry
Dexter Fong: Ah the politics of fine dining
Elayne: 'Kay. If I do it for Saturday night that's a good excuse to stroll around the West Village.
cease: sounds delightful, el
Elayne: What time were Tom and Lili planning on dropping you at the Riggs Residence?
Dexter Fong: you 2 chat amongst yourselves while I refrech my refreshing beverage
cease: el, do you remember when i was visiting and looking at your Peanuts books and asked if you and robin remember the very intricate strips shultz drew about shroeder's visit to beethoven's home town?
cease: i have to talk to doc again soon el, so i'll ask
Elayne: Oh dear, your beverage isn't self-refreshing?
cease: its from a book of sunday strips from late 50s or very early 60s
Elayne: I vaguely remember, Cat.
cease: i promised to send it to you, but i can bring you the actual book if you don't have it
cease: i got way into peanuts around 58-59 and have some books from that era
Elayne: Robin has everything up to the '70s, he's been collecting those volumes.
Dexter Fong: I'm into Cashews myself....and Macadamias
Dexter Fong: But peanuts brickle *is* rather nice
Elayne: He has through the 11th book, it goes up to 1972.
Elayne: There are more books out but we can't really afford everything we want to buy at the moment.
cease: you mean the original books?
Dexter Fong: E: Did robin show any interest in the Dresden Books?
cease: the kind of fine drawing one expects from robin but not shultz. that's why i mentioned it to you 2 5 years ago
Elayne: No Dex, he didn't.
Dexter Fong: But Cat: YOu didn't know Robin 25 years ago
Elayne: No Cat, the collections from Fantagraphics.
Elayne: Heck, I didn't know Robin 25 years ago.
Dexter Fong: Only Bruce Wayne did, and he called him Dick
Dexter Fong: In a positive sense that is
Elayne: Because he WAS a Dick. It's really that simple.
Dexter Fong: See
cease: was he tricky?
Dexter Fong: He was also a Grayson = Gray Son eh/
cease: if he was an Earl, he'd be...
Dexter Fong: A member of both the White and Black Councils
cease: probalby my least favourite blend of tea
Elayne: Oh, I like Earl Grey. Makes great iced tea.
cease: i like many kinds of tea. just not that one
cease: but i'll be bringing you some of that Fruit Garden tea from Japan i was teling you about. Fumiyo has lots, at leatst for now
Elayne: Oh, thank you!
cease: did anyone see the japanese player leaping up to catch ball?
Elayne: You'd have to be more specific than that, Cat.
cease: looks like something one of my cats does in jumping for a fly, but not a human for a fly ball
Dexter Fong: Not see Japanese play leaping up to catch ball
cease: today's news on bright new tv
cease: you're not a baseball fan are you, dex/
Dexter Fong: I am in fact...Mets fan
cease: i remember seeing manny mota then of the dodgers make a great catch once but this is ridiculous
Dexter Fong: First Big league game I ever saw was when my grandmother took me to see the Washington SENATORS PLAY THE Yankers
Elayne: Mets aren't doing too badly now, they're at .500 ball.
Dexter Fong: Mickey Vernon, Eddie Yost, Big Johnny Mize...and Van Lingo Mungo
cease: sounds like the script for Damn Yankees
Elayne: VAN LINGO MUNGO? I love it. Is that a real thing in the world?
cease: was that the Babe Ruth yankees, dex?
cease: i have a cd of baseball songs and one of them is about him, el
Dexter Fong: E: It's the name of a baseball player. Dave FRISCHBERG wrote and sings a song that is nothing but a recitatioan of players names from the 40s and 50s
cease: and he would have to have been a white man. weird
Dexter Fong: And every chorus ends with van's name
cease: yes that's the tune, dex
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 9:59 PM, dragging Bunnyboy by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this yo-yo?"
Dexter Fong: Cat: Remind me to play Orchestra Luna's version of "You Gotta Have Heart"
Bunnyboy: Anyone for Bridge?
cease: and then there were 4
Bunnyboy: Who...ehrm, fluffed?
cease: we're multiplying, like bunnies
Dexter Fong: Hiya BBoy
Elayne: Evenin BB!
Bunnyboy: I was in the "Heart" quartet, in DAMN YANKEES, in college.
Dexter Fong: Then you've got heart BB
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Elayne: Every time I hear that song I think of the Allan Sherman parody. Sherman ruined me for so many songs of that era.
Bunnyboy: Not just Heart. Har-AR-ar-eart!
Elayne: "You gotta have skin, all you really need is skin, skin's the thing that when you got it outside, it helps keep your insides in...."
cease: shine on harvey bloom, up in the moon
Bunnyboy: Somebody (Shout! maybe?) is re-releasing all the Sherman albums this fall.
Dexter Fong: Hey Cat, have you gone outside at night to see the great Aurora show?
cease: i saw him doing a tv show in la once.
cease: he was very good
cease: i tend to Sleep at night, dex
cease: maybe it's just me.
||||||||| Ben Bland steals in around 10:03 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last night's "unpleasant incident."
Elayne: I already have My Son, the Boxed Set, Bunnyboy.
Elayne: Evenin' Ben!
Dexter Fong: Like when it gets dark, cat...not at fucking 3 in the morning
cease: wow. they are trickling in.
cease: hi ben
Elayne: I was going to give that boxed set to my parents for their 50th wedding anniversary, but my dad was killed three weeks before that.
Dexter Fong: Good evening Ben
Elayne: So I don't even know where it is now, I can't bring myself to look for it.
Elayne: My dad was soooo into Allan Sherman.
cease: bummer, el
Bunnyboy: lo Ben!
Dexter Fong: My dad was into General Sherman
Ben Bland: Elayne, Dexter, cease. Do carry on.
Elayne: Well, if it weren't for stuff like Sherman, who knows if I would have been primed for things like Firesign?
cease: did your dad see him live, el?
Dexter Fong: Hated them reb boys
cease: i thought your dad WAS general sherman, dex
Elayne: I just got a Molly Goldberg CD (MP3) for my mom.
cease: indeed, el
Dexter Fong: No cat< President Lincoln
Elayne: She really likes Gertrude Berg.
Dexter Fong: He was a lifelong Republican
cease: the firesigns are still paroding old songs. on the last few rfo's, they're ripping off Mr. Sandman with a tune they called Dr. Blowjob
Ben Bland: ...and Mr Peabody?
cease: they could rip off the Sandman comix, but it really woulndt work on the radio
Dexter Fong: General Sherman and the Peabody Institute
Elayne: No Cat, I doubt Dad ever saw Sherman live. Unless he played the Borscht Belt, I have no idea what Mom and Dad saw when they went to the Catskills.
cease: I would be surprised if he didn't, El. i saw him in la
Elayne: They saw a lot of shoes in AC and Vegas, but Sherman was long gone by then. My mom still likes to see shows in AC and Vegas when her friends treat her. :)
Bunnyboy: Elayne: Didja see the doc on the lady who played/created Molly Goldberg?
Elayne: Well, I'll ask Mom on Saturday. I'm actually curious about the shows she and Dad went to.
cease: and if i were a jewish comedian in the 50s/60s, i'd much rather be in ny than la
Elayne: I've seen various docs on Gertrude Berg now and again, Bunnyboy, I probably saw that.
Elayne: But Cat, LA! And it's a dry heat!
cease: when did sherman die?
Dexter Fong: 1872
Bunnyboy: It's a recent documentary. Title starts out "Yoo-Hoo!".
Elayne: Lot sof Jews in the pre- and post-war eras migrated to the Hollywood area.
cease: not enough jews to support a comedian, at least a successful one, unless he was on tv/movies
Dexter Fong: Sioux arrow took him out
Elayne: LOL, Dex!
cease: ny has nightclubs and such
Bunnyboy: Literally came out late last year, or early this year.
cease: and the catskills
Bunnyboy: It's slated for a DVD release, sometime within the next month.

Dexter Fong: I've heard about your cat skills, Cat

Ben Bland: No, I'm not broadcasting.
Elayne: I'm afraid I still don't have the hang of Second Life. And my first one is fading fast this evening.
Dexter Fong: All I can say is in the next life, you're on your own
Ben Bland: I tend to shy away from, you know, the content thing.
Elayne: Next week, all.
Dexter Fong: Night ELAYNE
Ben Bland: But these folks at Virtually Speaking are different.

Dexter Fong: 'mutters "By Jove, I think he's got it"
Bunnyboy: It's a font choice.
Dexter Fong mutters, "But I've lost it"
Bunnyboy: I gotta go BBQ some poultry parts. Nitey!
Dexter Fong: Low and slow BB, low and slow
cease: by bun
Bunnyboy: It's what kept the 2000 year old man alive. That, and a stuffed cabbage.
Ben Bland: I'll try to get here early next time.
Dexter Fong: and a little spring water and some clouds
Ben Bland: Poultry parts are better than no parts at all.
Dexter Fong: Ben: You could have been here hours earlier when only Cat and I were here
Bunnyboy: But why, when I eat asparagus...
Dexter Fong: and I eat corn
Bunnyboy: ...such an odor...
Ben Bland: Is it free range asparagus?
Dexter Fong: shows up weeks later
Dexter Fong: on the north forty
Dexter Fong: hiding in the succatash
cease: just like various chatters
Bunnyboy grabs the tongs.
||||||||| "Hey Bunnyboy!" ... Bunnyboy turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 10:23 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...
Dexter Fong: your velcome, BB
Ben Bland: You're a free range Bunnyboy?
cease: no caged rabbit he
Dexter Fong: He's a fwee wange wabbit!
Ben Bland: My dream of bringing the Future Fair to Second Life seems... Remote.
||||||||| Catherwood enters with RumpleTweenSkin close behind, mumbles something about disrupting his 10:26 PM tree-stunting plans, and scurries off to the anteroom.
Ben Bland: Distant.
Ben Bland: Fading.
RumpleTweenSkin: Hey all
cease: did you talk about it with merl, ben?
cease: hi tween
cease: he does stuff like that for the firesigns
Ben Bland: You need a shave, Rumple.
Dexter Fong: And a Bris brother
cease: i havent shaved since march, 1976.
cease: so the concept of "needing" a shave is unknown to me
Dexter Fong: Who's that talking behind that beard and sunglasses?
Ben Bland: Sleeping until it all blows over. Tried it. But I kept waking up.
Ben Bland: I keep waking up and nothing has changed.
Dexter Fong: Have you tried Flavolex
RumpleTweenSkin: Yeah Ben, it didn't work
Dexter Fong: The Flavolax
Ben Bland: Something changed for you. Now you need a shave.
Dexter Fong: Could be lice

Ben Bland: You'll always look keen.
Dexter Fong: Does any of yez recall the old Burma-Shave signs?

RumpleTweenSkin: Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your beard?
Ben Bland: The movie Idiocracy had a similar concept.
RumpleTweenSkin: Somehow just doesn't seem the same

Dexter Fong: I flashed on it when I noticed my little ditty thing kinda looked like a series of BShave signs
