Thweeny: That's the trick, isn't it, cease?
cease: tits beat death every day
Dexter Fong: llan: It has, but the big picasso show had it because it's in the MOMA permanent collection

Thweeny: I still have a copy of Garcia, Reich and Wenner
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood snorts derisively: "9:59 PM and late as usual, it's Merlyn, just back from Hellmouth."
Thweeny: Haven't read it in ages
Thweeny: Thanks for remnding me

Merlyn: I think so, they said something about the house not really being theirs now
cease: merl, do they know satoshi kon's work? i think paprika and others are as good as firesign, and NOTHING is as good as firsign, if you catch my zen menaing

Dexter Fong: "A sort of motel"?
Thweeny: I love his Irony Lives album
Thweeny: and subscribe to Ironic Times and his Huffington Post posts
Merlyn: a motel where they sort you by income

Thweeny: Not just exactly like the picture of his web site
Papoon's_Revenge: he's 78 now.
Thweeny: I don't have to agree with the Yippie movement to like some of the things they were saying
cease: when i met him, he looked more like several times the age of the photo he wanted me to publish
Thweeny: Anybody who was at the 'police riot' in 1968 has my respect
Thweeny: Ossman's up there as well
Thweeny: So what ? ;-)
Dexter Fong: I did not know ossman was in the police riot
Thweeny: Just a fellow octagenerian
cease: paul is the most modest person i've ever met who has less reason for modesty
Thweeny: cool thing to say
Dexter Fong thinks that nino being a smart as he is out to have everyone's age next to their location on his little schedule
Papoon's_Revenge: that thing about Ossman replacing Sting in The Police was just a rumor.
Thweeny: Wait, I've got that wrong, don't I
Thweeny: Ossman talked about Social Security benefits in the XM series
Thweeny: So 70's, not 80's
cease: pap, you know ossman almost died during a tour a decade ago, and they were thinkng of replacing him
Thweeny: Hey my mother is 93 and still kicking
Papoon's_Revenge: that XM series had some great moments.

cease: pa, fuck, EVERYTHING has some great moments
Thweeny: A rather opinionated old Quaker lady, who does candle-light marches against war
Thweeny: I'm so sorry they can't get something like XM together again
Papoon's_Revenge: Mothers never stop kicking...i>
cease: good for you, tween. my 91 year old mother knows she is alive, but not much more
Thweeny: vigils not marches
Thweeny: have to get that right...
cease: tween, i think as astrology fans would say, stars have to alighn for that to happen. but merl would know
Thweeny: Yes, cease, I consider myself very lucky
Dexter Fong: My 102 year old mother is pretty sure this is 1957
Thweeny: Mom still drives and does yoga
Merlyn: not sure if I know more about ossman, cat, all I know offhand is when he talked about his angioplasty
cease: i thnk astrology is as relavent as santa claus, but dont tell the firesigns i think that
Thweeny: Fine year for Chevys
cease: when i got back from europe in 03 he told me about that on phone. sounded really scary but thqt was 4 years after we met them in seattle
Dexter Fong: True tween, but for me, it's the origianl 55's when chevy finally went V-8

Papoon's_Revenge: looks like a two-bit ring from a crackerback jox.
||||||||| Catherwood walks up and pipes up "Presenting 'Bunnyboy', just granted probation at 10:49 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
Bunnyboy: Sorry dat. Had a PC freeze.
Dexter Fong: WB Bunny
cease: welcome back, bun
Papoon's_Revenge: i thought "Bugs" was the WB Bunny?
Merlyn: http://www.footnoteconspiracy.com/mystery.htm
Merlyn: that's about the unknown japanese cuts
Bunnyboy: Ah, our blessed NW is secure. Same 3 Democratic women, as Senators and Governor, in Washington. Back-from-the-shadows 3-term Democratic Governor, in Oregon.
Merlyn: would you know anyone in Japan who might be able to identify it Cat?
Bunnyboy: cat: Did I ask you if you'd seen the 1977 film, HAUSU (HOUSE)?
cease: no, bun
Bunnyboy: Well, have ya?
Papoon's_Revenge: reminds me of a funny story Warren Beatty told on the extras to the "Bonny And Clyde" DVD.
cease: bun i only have so much interest in the genre. much less than you
cease: merl, maybe. let me ask Fumityo. she goes to japan nextg week
Bunnyboy: The genre being...?
Merlyn: ok

Dexter Fong: Night Dear FRIENDS< SEE YAH NExt week

Merlyn: cya dex

Dexter Fong: They were'nt alway yellow, its the juandice
Merlyn: true dat cat
Merlyn: but this is obscure, old, and japanese

Papoon's_Revenge: but true.
cease: we do what we can
Papoon's_Revenge: you can be in two places at once (with proper training)
Bunnyboy: David Cassidy, popped for a DUI.
Merlyn: what might be better if you know people who can read japanese is to find an online japanese website that has a page on identifying obscure music clips, if there is such a thing
cease: i know thatr austin did an album with him. should i know more?
Bunnyboy: The old GOWAAPP ("Glass of wine and a pain pill") excuse. How 70s!
Merlyn: taylor apparently did that with WFMU
Papoon's_Revenge: rumor is, David Cassidy's no longer a teen heartthrob.
cease: yer merl, there is. i'll get into it
Bunnyboy: â€"Rilly, ossifer, it was jus' a leedle pill, and some backwash..."

cease: too few of us will see this.
cease: sauron has been eclispsed, but evil is still the environment we inhabit
||||||||| At 11:13 PM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, cease!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
Bunnyboy: Ready to turn out the lights, Merylyn?
Merlyn: sure, cya next week
Bunnyboy: oops, Merlyn?
Merlyn: bye bye bun

Bunnyboy: Okay, den. Take care!
||||||||| Bunnyboy says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, Bunnyboy exits at 11:15 PM.
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and pipes up "Presenting 'ChitChatRat', just granted probation at 2:41 AM", then leaves hurriedly.

Back from the shadows again!
Out where an In-jun’s your friend!
Where the veg’tables are green,
And you can pee into the stream!
Yes, we’re back from the Shadows again!


Yet now, as inevitable as dawn,
the Sun, arching on its axis,
rises to meet the East
--chariot-racing across the high noon desert sky,
only to plummit,
like bald Icarus,
into the sensual,
fermenting seas of the South Pacific.
And even now,
yet, as scary night decends upon us,
we could appreciate the Wonders of Nature
as stimulating
as Man’s Own Triumphs!

Let us pause . . .


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 . . . .


||||||||| Around 2:42 AM, ChitChatRat walks off into the sunset...
||||||||| 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."
