Dexter Fong: llan I always read/heard it as matching but misdirection was always part of their process
TheAccidentalTweenist: Some fine cuts on the Dear Friends release
llanwydd: I could be wrong
Dexter Fong: Cat: Whichever is longer

Principalpoop: new answers?

Dexter Fong: llan: it's not a matter of right or wrong, FST often use a word that has one or more homonyms
cease: indeed tween
Bunnyboy: Ah, crickets...I hate crickets! *BLAM!*
TheAccidentalTweenist: Unless you make money from dealing with rich people's problems

doctecazoid: i hate them and their stupid typos
TheAccidentalTweenist: "You can't argue with a drunken rotweiler. Lord knows I've tried..." - HST
Bunnyboy: cat: I thought they (Taylor?) just remastered 16 hours worth.

Principalpoop: FMU sounds like an insult
Caterino: WFMU?? I was thirteen when I wrote and recorded two radio commercials for them.

Principalpoop: they had radio back then?

Dexter Fong: fmu yah fmuing fmu
Caterino: It was for John Nurooki, who somehow had this show for ten freakin years
Principalpoop: FM me? nooo, FMU
Merlyn: hey, see you next week all
Bunnyboy: I was aware that several sections of JUST FOLKS were taken from the Dear Friends recordings. Didn't realize, until just recently, how clever they were in "repurposing" the material.
Principalpoop: night M

cease: are you tlaking about the tuesday broadcastrs, bun?
doctecazoid: that voodoo that you do...
TheAccidentalTweenist: St. Heckler? Haven't heard that one
Bunnyboy: That I am, cat.
Dexter Fong: Bunny: Like SCTV FST were very efficient, you don't throw stuff away
Principalpoop: wow, and I just saw they stopped making kodachrome film
Bunnyboy: doc: Unless it's a gag.
llanwydd: was it st. heckler's church of the seven lucky devils or was that something else?
Woody 1: Yeah. Just listening to that piece laately. Funny as hell. St. Heckler.
TheAccidentalTweenist: Film is so 20th century
Dexter Fong: They stopped making kodachrome? will that effect my new browser?
Caterino: When I was thirteen WFMU was a pr school. When I was 13, tape recorders had cranks.
Dexter Fong: llan Yes
TheAccidentalTweenist: lol Dex
Caterino: pre
Bunnyboy: llan: That's right. It was mainly an improv piece, with "booth guests", I reckon.
Woody 1: How about catapillars?
Bunnyboy: Hence, the laffs.
doctecazoid: hasslebad working on a 200 mexapixel camera - http://news.cnet.com/8301-30685_3-20017220-264.html
TheAccidentalTweenist: That;s an Adobe plug-in, right?

Dexter Fong: Bunny: Sorry for the mis routing
Principalpoop: 3D video cameras under 1,000 be here soon

Bunnyboy: Didn't y'all think that Bozos would be the way to Gozos, come 2011?
Principalpoop: they never come to roanoke, they could get the roanoke convention center for a song, and a few skits
Dexter Fong: Woody: Where is it and what is it?
Woody 1: Thought about getting a ticket for a keep-sake.
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies Elayne inside, makes a note of the time (10:36 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.

Dexter Fong: I understand that deep mauves, umbers, and shades of black are what everyone's wearing

Dexter Fong: How long are your arms?
Dexter Fong: Let me measure your inseam again
llanwydd: mauves and umbers? I wouldn't know one when I saw one
doctecazoid: things got a little chilly over the past two weeks of evenings, it just warmed up today
cease: can we ask dex if he has a recording device?
doctecazoid: (and yesterday too, come to think of it)
Dexter Fong: llan: Vegas argot for overs/unders...point spreads etc
llanwydd: aha
Dexter Fong: Cat: You may, I have only a cassette maching...a good one...an expensive one ....but still
cease: i want to go to vegas for some restaurants.
cease: both my cassette and dat recorders died and sony doesnt make them any mroe so they cant be fixed
cease: parts no longer made
llanwydd: all the restaurants in vegas are in casinos
Dexter Fong: I want to go for some action
llanwydd: and I wouldn't set foot in one of those
doctecazoid: the 10 day forecast calls for chance of rain with moderate temps (low to mid '70s fahrenheit) monday-tuesday-wednesday
cease: everything is in casinos
doctecazoid: thursday too
Dexter Fong: That's what I saw also doc
doctecazoid: evening lows in the upper 50s
doctecazoid: not that bad really
llanwydd: if I did, I wouldn't have to drive more than 50 miles to an indian reservation
doctecazoid: but cloudy and a bit dank - you'll feel like you're in england
llanwydd: but I have reservations about that
cease: about like here. ok, i'll wear my usual jacket, the one i wore to europe
Dexter Fong: or North Van
cease: never been to england other than heathrow
Dexter Fong: while y'all globe trot I'll take a moment to refresh
doctecazoid: he take one look and heathrow up
cease: always a good idea
llanwydd: I spent the summer of 1984 in England
llanwydd: heathrow tull?
Bunnyboy: I'd best be feeding my ravenous mate. Nitey, folks!
doctecazoid: thank her for her patience with us, bb
llanwydd: Nite BB
doctecazoid: "i'm so worried about the baggage retrieval system they have at heathrow"
llanwydd: I've been ravenous today as well. it's quite unusual
Caterino: Nite BB
TheAccidentalTweenist: lol Doc
doctecazoid: (python's contractual obligation record)
llanwydd: I'm so worried that I'm drivin everyone around the bend
doctecazoid: nite bb
cease: by bun
Caterino: Just a plug for the peeps peepin in later. http://caterino.proboards.com/index.cgi
llanwydd: intereresting that americans don't say "round the bend"
TheAccidentalTweenist renews his contractual obligation
doctecazoid: i used to call "not insane" firesign's contractual obligation record, but after having read david's diary, i see it was more a case of the group biting off more than it could chew.
Caterino: (python's contractual obligation record) I had that, placed it between Dwarf and Danger to dsee if some funny would rub off
||||||||| Bunnyboy leaves to catch the 10:51 PM train to Washington.
cease: well said, doc
TheAccidentalTweenist: Great recording. Matching Tie and Handkerchief as well
TheAccidentalTweenist: Have you seen Python's "Live In Aspen"?
llanwydd: yes, fst didn't like Not Insane but I think it has real merits
Caterino: The three sided album
cease: bun has gone from seattle to washington.
cease: i had a 3 sided album, by rr kirk
TheAccidentalTweenist: It's bundled these days on DVD with "Live At The Hollwood Bowl"
llanwydd: I bought Matching Tie and Handkerchief when I was in 8th grade
Caterino: I thought Not Insane was good. Seeing the movie made it better
llanwydd: it was fascinating
TheAccidentalTweenist: I amazed that FST and Python never found any common ground
TheAccidentalTweenist: The court jesters of the UK and America might have been good fun
TheAccidentalTweenist: i'm
Caterino: Comedians refuse to admit they like or listen to other comedians. The common ground was the Goon shows
llanwydd: I can definitely imagine a great live show with the two groups but never an album
doctecazoid: thing is: firesign was inspired by both classic radio and the goon show, that's what they went after.
Caterino: I can see a Python VS Firesign album
TheAccidentalTweenist: That's a good point Caterino
doctecazoid: python was also strongly influenced by the goons, but since they wrote for tv in the early and mid '60s, they figured out how to translate the goon aesthetic to the visual medium
llanwydd: for example "Never Be Rude to an Arab" would have been a great song to put on "40 Great Unclaimed Melodies" and they could have done that live
TheAccidentalTweenist: Jokes at 20 paces?
cease: proc and python have chatted, he says so in ihs planet
cease: they're not enemies by any means
TheAccidentalTweenist: With the help of American Terry Gilliam, of course
Dexter Fong: Bob: Goon show was certainly in FST's head as well as Python. but also for FST was Bob and Ray
doctecazoid: terry provided the interstitials
cease: yes llan, a collaboration would be amazing
Caterino: Remember the Python bit Dennis Moore
Caterino: the theme song?
doctecazoid: dex: yes, they were steeped in radio and that's their chosen medium
llanwydd: Phil Proctor as Dennis Moore!
doctecazoid: dennis moore, dennis moore, he's not in this bit
Dexter Fong: And the proto show for them all might have been Colonel Stoopnagel and Bud
Caterino: No but the other day on Cable, I saw the ending credits to an english show from the early sixties Ropbin Hood, thats the theme.
doctecazoid: i seem to recall hearing (not long ago) that the theme song is a parody of the brit tv version of robin hood ... ?
llanwydd: the two approaches are world's apart
cease: i was talking to ossman last saturday, raving abouthis reading of the tang poems
cease: he said it was the mike
cease: that's modesty.
doctecazoid: there you go then
Caterino: Ok rambling, gots to go bros and felines
llanwydd: Python is right in your face but FST requires you to draw near
Dexter Fong: Guidos and Guidettes
TheAccidentalTweenist: Great to see ya, Bob
Caterino: Yes Python is jolly good, but Firesign need thought and smarts
doctecazoid: python were dadaists, firesign is more surrealist
cease: by bob
Dexter Fong: llan: THAT"S THE BRITISH MUSIC HALL INFLUENCE that's present in the goons also
Caterino: C ya next week same firetime, same fire cha,, um, website
doctecazoid: python's tv show humor is scattershot, firesign wants you to laugh and think at the same time
TheAccidentalTweenist: Interesting, Doc
doctecazoid: which is no mean feet
cease: not sure i agree with that, doc
Dexter Fong: feets, get meanly
TheAccidentalTweenist: But then again, Python isn't always as obvious as it seems
Dexter Fong: ;steps on his own toes
doctecazoid: cat: you don't like my ideas? i've got others....
llanwydd: well, python always seemed to operate on the principal that the most unlikely situations were the funniest
cease: lol
llanwydd: that doesn't seem to be the primary focus with FST
cease: indeed, llan
TheAccidentalTweenist: Theere layers to Python as well, but nothing like FST complexity
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
TheAccidentalTweenist: There are
cease: i dont see putting either group in categories
Dexter Fong: Hmmm, the myune is missing....and some bloke has it in his backyard
doctecazoid: python really started stretching out thematically with the movies
TheAccidentalTweenist: As has been said a FST album is like a good rock mix
doctecazoid: grail and brian
cease: they have learned from and share traits with earlier traditions, but they are their own unique thing
Dexter Fong: or braille and grindin
TheAccidentalTweenist: In the light.... of the silvery...
cease: the 2nd flick, yes. the first was just stitched from the tv show
TheAccidentalTweenist: I _love_ Pink Hotel
Dexter Fong: koda chrome (no longer in production)
cease: indeed about the rock mix, tween
llanwydd: I don't mind labeling python dadist as someone said earlier
doctecazoid: they did it well, but when they tried to sustain it they hit a creative brick wall - they realized this, threw in the towel and that's why meaning of life comes off more like an extended python sketch show
Dexter Fong: Doc said it...and he means it pilgrim
llanwydd: and I suppose I can see surrealism in FST
TheAccidentalTweenist: Bubba did a great job resurrecting those old tracks
TheAccidentalTweenist: And I miss his prescence here as well
doctecazoid: hey, i'm just employing the posterior extrusion method with these analytical musings
cease: graiol and brian were amazing flilcks, i wish firesign had made flicks as good
llanwydd: python had more money
TheAccidentalTweenist: lol Doc
cease: yes llan
Dexter Fong: I'm a proud member ot the dazed knights of the Mobeius Strip
TheAccidentalTweenist: Yes, as has been pointed out, Python had the BBC and Harrison behind them
cease: but even if you gave the fireguys python bucks, would they have made something as funny?
cease: i dont think they have the same visual genius as they do audio
TheAccidentalTweenist: And yet they can pull off Weirdly Cool with practically no set
doctecazoid: is that anywhere near sunset strip?
Dexter Fong: We'll prolly never know Cat
cease: pbs's dime
llanwydd: amrad just hijacked me again
doctecazoid: cat: true dat
doctecazoid: firesign has always been and will always be masters of the audio medium
llanwydd: just as python was better on tv than on audio
doctecazoid: that, and their live shows
TheAccidentalTweenist: Yeah, and NPR for a while
Dexter Fong: What???
doctecazoid: python's audio was more often than not just a regurgitation of their video work
TheAccidentalTweenist: Which is where they should be again
llanwydd: which is why I like contractual obligation best. it was all new material
TheAccidentalTweenist: Oh yeah, Python's albums were very good
TheAccidentalTweenist: Nothing like the complexity of FST, though
Dexter Fong: I just got the Kindle version of Itchy and Scratchy
TheAccidentalTweenist: Like comparing Help with Sgt Peppers
doctecazoid: masters of sketch comedy - that's why gilliam was the glue, it freed them from having to write endings to their bits
llanwydd: I got to get me a kindle someday
cease: i think sgt pepper had an influence on formation of firesign
doctecazoid: they'd take a premise as far as they felt like it, then they'd hand things over to terry
cease: good point, doc
TheAccidentalTweenist: They had an influence on many people
llanwydd: beatles had a big influence on firesign
Dexter Fong: llan: Step around back. I got a face cord and I needs me some Kindlin'
doctecazoid: terry would then do his thing to get the show to the next sketch
TheAccidentalTweenist: lol Dex
doctecazoid: it is a brilliant formula that holds up well to this day
TheAccidentalTweenist: You have t see Monty Python Live In Aspen
llanwydd: I need an iphone before I buy a kindle though
||||||||| It's 11:10 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Caterino - dead from the common cold
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
doctecazoid: i will keep an eye out for it tween, thanks
llanwydd: I've never even owned a cell phone
doctecazoid: self phone?
cease: i remain phoneless
Dexter Fong: I traded my Iphone in for a JPhone
doctecazoid: one good thing about calling yourself ... you're always there to answer
TheAccidentalTweenist: They muse about their beginnings and what MP meant to comedy
llanwydd: well, I've phoned myself
llanwydd: sounds phony doesnt it
Dexter Fong: llan: WHO< THE CALLER OR THE DIALEE
doctecazoid: the megaphone newsreel cameras fly over the oceans, across the seven seas - and right into your face!

TheAccidentalTweenist: Yeah, heard NYC got hot by tornadoes
Dexter Fong: sheeeeesh
TheAccidentalTweenist: Speaking of not in Kansas :(
TheAccidentalTweenist: hit
cease: i can hear you all the way in north van
Dexter Fong clicks two heels together three times and leaves them in the gutter
llanwydd: I hope the next tornado devastates an uninhabited area of water off the coast
llanwydd: that would be an interesting phenomenon
TheAccidentalTweenist: Not so funny when people get killed
Dexter Fong: llan: Why do you hate fish?
llanwydd: well, the fish wouldn't mind so much
cease: i only hate raw fish
llanwydd: they would just swim a little deeper
Dexter Fong: Oh sure! Like how long have you been working for scale?
llanwydd: I know. I hate them and their stupid problems
TheAccidentalTweenist see dolphins thanking LL and leaving
llanwydd: well, what should I eat before bed?
llanwydd: I've been eating ravenously today and its a strange phenomenon
TheAccidentalTweenist: kippers
llanwydd: yeah and then I'll kip off to bed
TheAccidentalTweenist: but that's just a red herring
cease: better red than dead
TheAccidentalTweenist: better dread than red, mon
cease: dont get all jamaican on me

||||||||| Dexter Fong - dead from intense demonic possession
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
TheAccidentalTweenist: Yeah, they're in a very deep hole economically
cease: thats true for a lot of places
llanwydd: I don't approve of taxation
TheAccidentalTweenist: True
llanwydd: I don't mind the government collecting a fee for the use of currency but that's it
cease: you would prefer customs duties?
TheAccidentalTweenist: But Cal is maybe the 8th largest economy on the planet?
cease: america could charge a tax for everything imported
llanwydd: no, I wouldn't
cease: yes tween. the prices have already started to fall in bc in anticipation of a yes vote
TheAccidentalTweenist: Well, sometime we can discuss what the Constitution provides for in terms of taxes. This ain't it
TheAccidentalTweenist: Good to hear, cease
llanwydd: I've been seriously thinking about moving to CA
TheAccidentalTweenist: Maybe it'll be like beer and wine. You can make (grow) a certain amount per year for private use
cease: i lived there for a long time. unfortunately the wrong time
cease: only it coincided with the birth of the firesgins
llanwydd: I love this place in the summer but I can not take another winter in the "north country"
cease: van is cold enough
llanwydd: maybe CA is the place for an actor anyway
llanwydd: or at least one who is making the crossover from stage to film
cease: good point, llan
llanwydd: and might need mmj occasionally
TheAccidentalTweenist: I hear Van is pretty mild in the winter, compared to the rest of CN
llanwydd: well, "need" is a sketchy word
cease: thats why we live here, tween

||||||||| TheAccidentalTweenist leaves to catch the 11:49 PM train to Billville.
||||||||| It's 12:00 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| llanwydd - dead from Globner's disease
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood walks in wearing his pyjamas, yawns, and mumbles "It's midnight here in New York city"...then he falls over and starts snoring loudly..
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 1 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 2 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 3 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| Catherwood ushers EggsOverEasy in through the front door at 3:54 AM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
EggsOverEasy:

Well, if that don’t take the rings off a Boomer!

Mark’s in a heap o’ hot gas now,
and I can’t do a thing
but go ‘round and ‘round in this tin box!

Well, my stars!
Looks like I’m gonna miss out on all the exposition,
and the biggest thing since the Eagle landed.
If I could just get this dad-blamed water pump to turn over . . .

EggsOverEasy:

Prince Arcturus!
Commander Demos of th Federation Navy speaking!
A thousand men,
mutants
and just plain Joes
from little Moons
all over the Universe
are ready to chase you back

to whatever evil world you came from!
Batten down the hatches,
Arcturus!
Here we come!

EggsOverEasy:

Can Mark Time and Bob make their childish trick work?

Can Doctor Technical get out of the Asteroid Belt
before two mighty rocket fleets launch their attacks around him?

Who knows?

Who cares?

Listen next week,
same fire time,
same fire station,
to Ma-a-a-a-rk Ti-i-i-i-me!!

||||||||| Around 3:55 AM, EggsOverEasy walks off into the sunset...
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 4 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| Catherwood enters, and announces to all and sundry "It's 4:32 AM, time to change the log file and clean out unused rooms; please exit the chat room for a minute or two. Thank you for your patience."
