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 December 09, 2010 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| 8:36 PM: ah,clem jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past half hour!"
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern'
||||||||| "8:37 PM? I'm late!" exclaims ah,clem, who then hurries out through the french doors and down through the brambles.
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, December 09, 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?"
||||||||| Catherwood enters with MoreTweenLessFilling close behind, grumbles something about disrupting his 9:01 PM tree-stunting plans, and rushes off to the anteroom.
||||||||| 9:01 PM: cease jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past half hour!"
||||||||| Catherwood escorts Bambi in through the front door at 9:02 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
Bambi: Hello Dear Friends :-)
MoreTweenLessFilling: hewwo
Bambi: looks like we are right on time :-)
cease: hi masses
cease: as opposed to left on space
MoreTweenLessFilling: Who you callin' fat?
Bambi: I only have one space bar ;-)
cease: i like being spaced and in a bar. does that count?
MoreTweenLessFilling: lol
cease: tween: santa claus
Bambi: lol
cease: i'm funny and i have yet to partake of my favourite intoxicants.
cease: not for long
||||||||| "9:06 PM? 9:06 PM!!" says Catherwood, "ah,clem should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as ah,clem enters and sits on the couch.
Bambi: Catherwood please pour everyone their favorite lovely beverage
||||||||| Catherwood gives everyone their favorite lovely beverage.
ah,clem: ah
ah,clem: this drink my be drugged...
Bambi: Catherwood please pour me a toasted almond
||||||||| Catherwood hands Bambi a toasted almond.
MoreTweenLessFilling: Hola, Mr. Clem
ah,clem: ah, yes, it is
ah,clem: hola
cease: no clem, recorded in 67, released in 68
ah,clem: I sit corrected
cease: when you said the begining, i thought you got a copy of the 1966 first appearance of the firesigns, as the oz film festival
cease: i dont even know if there is a recording of that.
Bambi: na, albums
Bambi: nah even
cease: and the mushroom shows remain unreleased, except for the pink hotel pieces
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and intones "Presenting 'Dexter Fong', just granted probation at 9:10 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
cease: and speaking of mushrooms....
ah,clem: na na nah nah, hey hey
MoreTweenLessFilling: That would make such a great boxed set (mushrooms)
MoreTweenLessFilling: Hey Dex
Dexter Fong: Ev'nin' 'olk'
cease: well there is a new box set coming out momentarily, the hour hour, df and lets eat shows
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 9:11 PM and Hemlock Scones bounds out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
cease: i've helped out taylor with some of the mushrooms he didnt have and i did, but one i used to have and he cant get is called Last Exit to Fresno
Dexter Fong: Scones, you old bounder
cease: hey stones, your computer still works!
Hemlock Scones: only just Cease, its sending out bots in every direction
MoreTweenLessFilling: Hello Scones
cease: i hope you're not infecting us right now
cease: i spoke with stones on skype this morning. sounded perilous
Dexter Fong: I seem to have picked up a virus..my icons are multiplying
Hemlock Scones: if anyone gets an email from me which reads, brianjackson and has no subject, please delete it immediately, we seem to have become embroiled in wikileaks cyber war
cease: how is retirement treating you, dex?
cease: noticed any difference?
ah,clem: yes, we noticed, Brian
Dexter Fong: Not yet really,
ah,clem: at least the pay is steady, Dex
Dexter Fong: Hope so clem
cease: not necessarily, clem
Hemlock Scones: the purpose of most of these bots is simply to keep everyone busy so they cannot get on with the serious business of giving the excesses of capitalism a good shagging
Dexter Fong: Don't put the hexy voodoo on me Cat
cease: well, you know why i visited you this year instead of last year
Dexter Fong: Yes =)
cease: but you're in a much healthier economy.
cease: i think
Dexter Fong: Lord no, Cat........City and State both in big deficits
Hemlock Scones: just reading about the Bomb House in San Diego
Dexter Fong: They even cut the budget for the future unwed mothers who are still daughters
cease: as long as they dont effect your pension, dex. i have to worry about my mother getting paid by the state of california
||||||||| "9:18 PM? 9:18 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Merlyn should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Merlyn enters and sits in front of the fireplace.
Merlyn: Here I are
Dexter Fong: Hey Merlyn
Hemlock Scones: Hi Merl
cease: i thought you were in minnisota
Bambi: Hey Dex, Scones, Merlyn
cease: mushroom soup indeed
Merlyn: I are, and Nino agrees
Dexter Fong: Hi Mizz Bambi (aw shucks, she mentioned me first)
Bambi smiles
cease: any firesign news, merl?
cease: i announced the new bo set but that's just cuz i seem to be one of the few on firesign chat who listen to rfo
Bambi: awesome! Nino says I am from parts unknown. my favorite place
Bambi: next to australia that is
cease: i see charles and camilla being attcked in the uk
Dexter Fong thinks he'd like to have *his* parts known
cease: they may wish to go to australia to get away from angry students
Dexter Fong: Dress up as Kangaroos
Dexter Fong: the grade school kids can be joeys
ah,clem: and get deported?
MoreTweenLessFilling: When does RFO broadcast, cease?
cease: http://www.radiofreeoz.com/
MoreTweenLessFilling: merci
cease: a new show is posted late at night or early mornings usually 3 or 4 days a week
cease: mostly bergman and ossman, occasion stuff from the phils
MoreTweenLessFilling: So all podcasts now, no live shows?
||||||||| 9:29 PM: Elayne jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past five minutes!"
Elayne: Evenin' all!
MoreTweenLessFilling: Hey E
Elayne: Goshamighty, it's cold!
cease: hi el
Bambi: Hey Elayne!
Dexter Fong: Don't cruch that pod cast, people are in there broadcasting
Dexter Fong: Hi Elayne
MoreTweenLessFilling: and not officially winter yet
Dexter Fong: How's the reading program going, Elayne
Elayne: Dex, it was lovely seeing you on Tuesday. Wasn't that a balmy day compared to today?
Bambi: yes, it is! even in parts unknown (see Nino for ref) it's freezing cold for this area
Hemlock Scones: we have had the lowest temperatures in the UK since records began
MoreTweenLessFilling: Was down to 27 last night in Austin, which is ridiculous for us
Elayne: Well, I'm getting bus sick when I try to play games on my new smartphone during my commute, so I doubt reading will be any more successful.
cease: how is phone, el? can you listen to podcasts on it?
MoreTweenLessFilling: Good Grid, Scones
cease: i havent decided whether to buy one or not
Dexter Fong: Scones< You mean back in the little ice age when your were still little?
Bambi: 21F and it's not even 10PM EST
MoreTweenLessFilling: Nippy for the South, Bambi
cease: did i miss the first word in turkish?
Elayne: Cat, I uploaded your radio play thingie that Doc sent me via email, and it plays just fine on the smartphone. Haven't finished listening yet.
Bambi: oh, that's nothing Tween ... last two nights were about 17F
Bambi: they said it was supposed to be 21F tonight .... have a feeling that's not gonna be the low LOL
cease: unless you knew the rfo pieces that were being parodied, i dont know if you'd find it amusing. i cant post it publicly cuz it's not my materia
Elayne: Ah, I see. Well, I got that it was a parody of something.
Hemlock Scones: only a couple of nights back it was minus 5 fahrenheit, all my pipes froze up and turds volcanoed out of my bath plug,
Elayne: Wow, Stones, not fun at all.
cease: early in rfo's history, bergman asked for people to submit content. i thought that was what he wanted. but being bergman, i dont expect to hear back from him
Bambi: ouch! that's rough Stones
Hemlock Scones: strangely comical despite the inconvenience
Dexter Fong: My Thundermug was well and truly iced over
cease: ossman told it was "weirdly cool" but i suspect that's not an original line
Elayne: From what I know of Bergman, Cat, he may have wanted original content rather than parodic.
Elayne: Something more like Red Shift.
Dexter Fong: When I sat on it, it froze to my rear end, I had to call in Raul to throw hot water on the problem
cease: considering how much the lads parody themselves, that may be true
cease: but i really dont want to discuss american politics, which is most of what rfo is about. i'd rather discuss food and interesting stuff
cease: speaking of food, interesting article about april bloomfield in recent new yorker
Elayne: He never understood why I published a newsletter dedicated to them while I could just as easily have published my own stuff. I told him "that's what INSIDE JOKE is for."
Dexter Fong: Thundermugs, lad, now *there's* a discussion
cease: called the queen of burgers. i almost miss not ordering one.
Elayne: Everyone at the restaurant seemed to be going for the burgers and fries, didn't they?
cease: indeed. ours was a rare burgerless table
cease: they sound good in the article, but i was delighted with my cheese tarte thingie
Elayne: I had a pretty good burger with Dex the other day. But I preferred the hot dog.
Elayne: A mighty hot dog was our lunch.
cease: ive never had taragon that tasted like lettuce before, but it worked
Dexter Fong: Yes Mistress!~
Elayne: Was that a Dr. Who ref, Dex? I love K-9...
cease: i dont miss stress, i'm relatively stress free
Elayne: Rob and I just finished watching the latest season of Sarah Jane Adventures, and dear old K-9 is still going around saying "Yes Mistress..."
Dexter Fong: E: It was a FS catchphrase that first surfaced in one of the Hour Hour shows and persisted for some time
Hemlock Scones: http://australianetworknews.com/stories/201012/3089859.htm?desktop
Elayne: Was it? I had no idea.
Dexter Fong: No Mistress!]
cease: it was a parlour game from the victorian era
Dexter Fong: Yes Mister
cease: called the finger game
Dexter Fong: Don' point your finger at me, daddio, I cut it off
Elayne: So maybe that's where Dr. Who got it as well...
Dexter Fong: As well as what?
cease: "yes mistress" is something the english have been saying for quite a while, el
Dexter Fong: along with "who's yourmistress and what's her address"
Elayne: Well, I know that, Cat, but as a referency-type expression, you know...
cease: yeah austin really gets into it, describing the game. and the yes mistress line echoed for a couple of years of thier radio work
Elayne: When Thatcher was in power, I believe it was "Yes, Ministress."
ah,clem: "yes mistress"
Elayne: Or "Your Monstrousness," either one.
Dexter Fong: Referency=type designed by Fingerspoint, LLC
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 9:43 PM and the Fool on the Hill steps out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
Elayne: Evenin', FoolHill!
cease: the hill is complete. we have a fool
Dexter Fong: Hey FoH
Dexter Fong: T
Dexter Fong: anayone?
Dexter Fong: Imported, y'know
Elayne: Just roll a couple of WWII bombers and drop them on the side table.
the Fool on the Hill: [aak! I keep trying to alt-resize windows; but it doesn't work in GNOME]
Elayne: It'll blow up real good.
Dexter Fong: Shipped hear on the backs of kangaroos and Joeys
Elayne: Gnome? What's Gnome?
cease: about an enola mcluhan?
Elayne: Our Gnome, in the middle of our street....
the Fool on the Hill: window manager
Dexter Fong: I don't know Elayne, lemme askher
Hemlock Scones: no place like gnome
Elayne: Well, defenestrate it!
cease: the medium is the massage, in megatons
the Fool on the Hill: catherwood, defenestrate GNOME
||||||||| Catherwood rushes up to the Fool on the Hill and mumbles "Do you have something for me to do?"
Dexter Fong: This Xmas I'm putting one of the Itralian Fragilee Lamps in the window
Hemlock Scones: i couldnt agree more Bambi
Elayne: That'll defenestrate if anything will, Dex!
Dexter Fong: That's what the city enginner said after they bull dozed the margins of the wetlands, De Fen is straight
cease: the defenestration of the plague?
Elayne: Say, I haven't blogged today yet. Anyone have a Silly Site suggestion?
Dexter Fong: $7th and Ninth
Dexter Fong: 47 that is
the Fool on the Hill chants like a Dalek, "Defenestrate! Defenestrate! DE-FEN-ES-TRATE!"
cease: i discovered a young woman comedien/blogger sort named linday kyte
cease: i found her youtube videos quite amusing but not necessarily silly.
Bambi: hey FoH
Elayne is very psyched for the Dr. Who Christmas special, and hopes there will be defenestration and Daleks therein.
||||||||| Catherwood walks up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'doctecazoid', just granted probation at 9:49 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
the Fool on the Hill doesn't like the new SUV Daleks
Elayne: At this point, Cat, I think a YouTube needs to be either Taiwanese animation or the Muppets for me to tout it as a Silly Site. ;)
Dexter Fong: Elayne, really! nobody is on Dialak any more
Elayne: Evenin' Doc!@
Bambi: Hey Doc!
Dexter Fong: Hey Doc
Bambi: best to Lili too!
cease: lindsay kyte. her tale about her dad talking about being a little girl was both silly and profound
doctecazoid: hey gang
the Fool on the Hill: not that i was ever wild about the Daleks to begin with
cease: hey doc
Merlyn: hi doc
doctecazoid: dex: otb rip?
cease: oh this is the bonus firesign thing from electrician
cease: i dont have this, for some reason
the Fool on the Hill: never found them very believable
Dexter Fong: Doc: Yes but I'm ret
Dexter Fong: My last day was their last day
doctecazoid: bambi: thanks - lili is crashed out on the couch, i'll pass along your good wishes and regards
Dexter Fong: Ironic possibly
Bambi: thanks Doc!
cease: all our best to lilil
Dexter Fong: akfr
doctecazoid: dex: talk about timing!
doctecazoid: thanx cease
doctecazoid: and all
cease: how are her online classes coming?
Bambi waves! Hey Clem!
Merlyn: I hope everyone here is on the firesign email list, there should be a fairly important announcement soon
cease: about the box set, merl?
doctecazoid: cease: well, i'd say: lukewarm
cease: better than cold
Merlyn: use the warm, luke
Elayne: Okay, do you think Bacon Or Beer Can qualifies as a Silly Site? http://www.baconorbeercan.com/
doctecazoid: fool on hill: it's science friction, believability is always in the eyes of the beholder
MoreTweenLessFilling: ...
cease: keep that cool hand to yourself
Elayne: Yes, sadly I think I'm going to go with that. Be right back; blogging.
cease: moderately amusing, el
doctecazoid: i can vouch for merl, keep your ears to the ground and your eyes in your sockets - the term 'box set' really doesn't do justice
cease: there's been a lot of talk of it on facebook. various artists arguing over the front cover.
cease: more than i wanted to know, actually.
doctecazoid: more like a dodecahedron set
cease: i hope there's enough of an audience left to pay for it's production.
cease: that wasn't the impression i got about box of danger
doctecazoid: cease: oh, i'm willing to bet there are
doctecazoid: this is gonna make box of danger look like box of mild annoyances
cease: i dont bet, but i would think there would be if said audience could be found
Dexter Fong: Maybe FS could get an audience with the pope
Dexter Fong: He could open for them
doctecazoid: if we build it, they will come
Bambi: box of danger a box of mild annoyances?! never! love box of danger!
Dexter Fong: Them's the spirits
doctecazoid: bambi: well if you live box of danger all i can say is: gird your grid for what's to come
doctecazoid: like not live
Merlyn: Hey Elayne, did you ever have http://katawa-shoujo.com as your site of the week or whatever?
Bambi: awesome doc! can't wait
cease: when he finally dies, local author wp kinsella will be remembered that line, doc. from his short story shoeless joe, which became that flick
cease: so how was austin's party, merl?
doctecazoid: bambi: thanks for your patience, a few eyes to cross and tees to dot before the unveiling
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Merlyn: wp sinsemilla
Merlyn: ?
Elayne: No Brian, what's silly about it?
doctecazoid: cease: didn't know that, thanks!!!!!
Bambi: no worries doc ... it will get here and when it does, we will all enjoy it
Merlyn: lots of fun, cat
Hemlock Scones: hope you can give Honey a warm welcome
cease: alternates between baseball and first nations stories. i think originally from iowa
cease: were all the guys there?
Merlyn: I learned that Phil A. is a fan of Fullmetal Alchemist -- I showed him my FMA pocketwatch
cease: i dont know what that is
Bambi: so will the 'island' be seceeding soon? lol
Dexter Fong: Scones, I'll just set this bomber ablaze
Merlyn: Elayne, Katawa Shoujo is a (not yet finished) visual novel about dating crippled girls
doctecazoid: hemlock: i have a lighter and a pile of newspapers, is that warm enough?
Hemlock Scones: be carefull with those low flying bombers Dex you can start a forest fire that way
doctecazoid: only you can prevent smky the bear
Dexter Fong: Don't light that newspaper, hand me The Nation
doctecazoid: smoky
Merlyn: and it's all free
Hemlock Scones: just a dollar Merl
Dexter Fong: sirky
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and announces "Announcing 'Honeynut Groats', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 10:03 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
doctecazoid: don't hand me the nation, hand me the wikileaks
Elayne: Yes, I just clicked through it, Brian. It's more a BoingBoing kinda thing than a Silly Site per se. You should submit it to BoingBoing.
Dexter Fong: smirky
cease: there is a beautifuyl story about smokey the bear as envisioned by gary snyder the firesign perform on a coupld of their hour hour show
Bambi: Hey Honey!
Hemlock Scones: Gives Honey a huge Hug
cease: hi honey.
Elayne: Evenin' Honey!
doctecazoid: want a snort?
Honeynut Groats: ok well i am here but firefox is preventing this page from automatically reloading so virtually i am not here
Elayne: Not bad, three double-x chromosomes among 11 chatters...
Dexter Fong: Hey Honey
Elayne: Okay, two and a half.
Merlyn: hey honey
doctecazoid: honk honk why it's ,,, oops sorry, wrong chat
Elayne: Soon to be one and a half. Even with the space heater this room's too cold.
Elayne: I'm going to snuggle under blankets and dream of warmer weather.
cease: dream warmly
Hemlock Scones: depends what you mean by warm, Elayne
Elayne: Next week, all! Perhaps a warming trend!
Dexter Fong: And thus, Flo Rida exerts its influence
||||||||| 10:05 PM -- Elayne left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
doctecazoid: depends on what you mean by mean, hemlock
Merlyn: byE
Bambi: rest well E!
doctecazoid: flo rica = el nina?
doctecazoid: rida
doctecazoid: can you guess ive had a martini or two?
doctecazoid: surely not from my typing skills
cease: doc, el said she was listenig to radio free booze on her new smart phone
Dexter Fong: Doc: Scones is not mean, he likes it that way
Merlyn: a martoni or tea?
cease: does that mean i can listen to podcasts on it? i would assume it would have to plugged in
Honeynut Groats: i can manually refresh so i can see what ya'all are typing
Dexter Fong: T for Tesla
doctecazoid: dex: scones mean? does scones have a meaning? blue meaning?
doctecazoid: so hard to tell...
Hemlock Scones: Dex, any sign of Lord Poop and his band the Poopy Doos?
cease: not yet, scones
doctecazoid: the manual that refreshes
Dexter Fong: Scones: No appearnace tonight
doctecazoid: i suspect manual refreshing happens quite frequently around the globe
Dexter Fong: I always feel both refreshed and soporithic
||||||||| Outside, the 10:09 PM crosstown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving no_anchovies coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Honeynut Groats: awwwwwwwww nutz!!! awwwww man it ain't workin' fer me maybe i can talk t o some tech support or someone who can help me to fix firefox I hope everyone is doing ok these days much love peace on earth or at least a piece of it anyway honey
doctecazoid: cat: i sent her the link to the mp3, that's why she could listen to it on smartphone (are they really that smart? isn't it just more a case of precociousness)
Bambi: I used to have to set it to manual refresh when we were on dialup not so long ago, so I can identify Honey LOL
Bambi: hey no_
no_anchovies: howdy.
doctecazoid: ah those were the days (cue sound of phone modem connecting)
Bambi: much love to you too Honey!
cease: so her phone, and the smart phone in general, can get audio links, like cni
ah,clem: do you have scripts enabled, Honey?
cease: can you listen to cni and chat at the same time?
Bambi: if you are using NoScript, you have to turn it off for the site..scripts are needed here
doctecazoid: why it was only yesterday when i thought: wow, 14.4k,i can download the jdk in just two hours!!!!!
||||||||| "10:11 PM? I'm late!" exclaims Honeynut Groats, who then scurries out through the french doors and down through the bushes.
no_anchovies: where's Llan?
cease: maybe you['re llan, under a new monniker
doctecazoid: lan, wan, man...
Dexter Fong: NO, llan hasn't been in to ight
Bambi: llan? is that you?
doctecazoid: or man under a new lloniker
Bambi: heard that doc! LOL now it would take overnight!
doctecazoid: no script, you have the wrong browser... i spell my name: chrome!
no_anchovies: it's Paul from San Diego. sorry i was absent of late, but i was ill.
Bambi: Chrome works nicely and sandboxed
cease: hope you're well now
Bambi: and has at least some of the extensions
Bambi: but no NoScript...really ticks me off that there's no NoScript
no_anchovies: not really, but thanks for the thought.
Bambi: hey Paul
Bambi: hope you are feeling much better now
cease: there is an amazing amount of ill health on this chat. maybe because most of us are old
doctecazoid: my iron lung is working again!
no_anchovies: (hates being old)
doctecazoid: we (s)old out!
Bambi: old? what's that? ;-)
doctecazoid: gong but not forgotten
Bambi: I am still 29 and holding ....
cease: we've had a few youths wander through. dave used to join us but he's too busy being young
cease: i was 29, 30 years ago
doctecazoid: are you holding? cool, i've got some scratch and have been looking for a score...
no_anchovies: gotta start young if you're gonna stick it out.
cease: age does different things to different people. the firesigns are all old but young
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Mudhead close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 10:16 PM tree-stunting plans, and rushes off to the Aviary.
Bambi: been holding a few years now myself LOL!
doctecazoid: got any reefer - roofer - wringer?
Bambi: hey Mudhead
