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 January 06, 2011 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood sneaks into the room, and intones "Announcing 'RedPillTweeny', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 4:29 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
||||||||| It's 4:40 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| RedPillTweeny - dead from intense demonic possession
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies cease in through the front door at 8:59 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
cease: rip, tween
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, January 06, 2011 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
cease: alone again. i feel like burgess meredith in that old twilight zone episode
||||||||| Catherwood sneaks into the room, and intones "Announcing 'NewYearsTween', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:04 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the Aviary...
NewYearsTween: Red Pill wasn't me
NewYearsTween: That was a great episode, cease
NewYearsTween: Meredith did some fine work in the TZ series
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and snorts derisively "Announcing 'doctecazoid', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:08 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the anteroom...
NewYearsTween: Pretty sure Red Pill is someone trying to have some fun with me
NewYearsTween: Hey Doc
doctecazoid wants a red pill
NewYearsTween: Don't know what's going on with clem
doctecazoid wants to see how far down the rabbit hole goes
doctecazoid wonders id catherwood wants a red pill
||||||||| Catherwood walks over to doctecazoid and inquires "Would you like something?"
doctecazoid asks catherwood to take a red pill
||||||||| Catherwood rushes alongside doctecazoid and says "Typing my name just to rile me, eh?"
NewYearsTween: I suspect it's pretty deep, Doc l)
NewYearsTween: ;)
NewYearsTween: biab
cease: hi doc
doctecazoid: evenin'
doctecazoid: lili's online class just finished - she's now whomping up a spinach quiche
doctecazoid: so i'll be here until she calls for me to set the table
cease: sounds like some serious whomping
doctecazoid: ooooh yeah baby
cease: one of the places i had reservations for in vegas just announced it was going out of business next week
doctecazoid: pool league playoff round one last night - we won, so we make the trek northward to 'big shot billiards' this coming january 28
doctecazoid: re vegas and the crappy economy: i'm not surprised
cease: trying to call jose andres' new restaurant in vegas for reservation but nothing but busy signal
doctecazoid: i love the contradictory news stories: things are getting better, even though they suck more
doctecazoid: ergo: they suck better?
||||||||| Walter Ego sashays in at 9:14 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
cease: i think the chef was wynn's private chef, someone i know was close to him and Alex got great reviews so there must be a serious problem
Walter Ego: good evening, dear friends
doctecazoid: this is walter!
||||||||| 9:15 PM: Mudhead 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!"
doctecazoid: hey walt
cease: watched an episode about vegas from No Reservations dvds in library
cease: anthony boudain as hunter thompson isn't very believable but well photobraphed
doctecazoid: funny, when i was in a band years a go i was thinking of changing my name to walter ego - great monicker imho
cease: hi walt and mut
Walter Ego: Hey Muddy
doctecazoid: el mudheadski
Mudhead: hi all
Walter Ego: I can't imagine anthony bourdain as hunter thompson

Walter Ego: I'm actually llanwydd, doc
doctecazoid: llanwalterydd ego
Mudhead: lol
cease: your ego gets its own monniker?
Walter Ego: want to hear something cool? I got a phone call on monday night from hemlock stones
doctecazoid: my ego gets its own ego - which makes for some interesting social interactions i must say
cease: on skype?
doctecazoid: w.e.: no s**t!? do tell!!!
Walter Ego: first time I've gotten a call from overseas since my parents visited israel when I was a teenager
Mudhead: see where the Hyundai Equus comes with its own ipad? Its like an ipad with a nifty carrying case from Hyundai
doctecazoid: wow
doctecazoid: did he sound - stoned?
doctecazoid: mh: lol!!!!!
Walter Ego: not really
doctecazoid: expensive (but mobile) carrying case
doctecazoid: that's brilliant
Walter Ego: we talked for about a half hour about all kinds of things.
doctecazoid: nice
cease: yes stones is very talkative
doctecazoid: how are things across the pond?
Walter Ego: he seems to be doing quite okay actually
doctecazoid: i'm glad to hear that!
doctecazoid: health improving i hope
Walter Ego: that's the closest I've ever come to meeting any of my fs chat friends
cease: he called me the other day
Walter Ego: he told me that peter postelthwaite died. I was somewhat familar with him
cease: i hpoe we meet eventually, llan
doctecazoid: yeah i heard that news too - saw pete in recent movie 'the town' during visit with relatives in north carolina over thanksgiving
doctecazoid: as with everything else i've seen him in, he was great
cease: how is everyone in north carolina, doc?
Walter Ego: I'll be driving through NC in a couple of weeks
cease: intentionally?
doctecazoid: they're all just carolina-ing along, cat
Walter Ego: yep
cease: gone to carolina in their minds?
Walter Ego: got nobody to see there but I95 happens to run through it
doctecazoid: my dad moved to burlington nc (just east of greensboro) last year
cease: i remember when i used to like james taylor. that seems like a different eon
doctecazoid: chapel hill has become quite the tony neighborhood
Walter Ego: I've got a cousin to visit who I haven't seen in 32 years
Walter Ego: that's going to be great. he lives in VA on the NC border
doctecazoid: research triangle park and the major colleges have helped the economy enormously in that area
cease: i hpe your cousin doesn't borrow vast sums of money from you
NewYearsTween: >>Walter Ego: I'll be driving through NC in a couple of weeks cease: intentionally?<<
NewYearsTween: lol
NewYearsTween: Hey Moog Music is now based in NC :)
Walter Ego: well, I don't know what he's like these days but I wouldn't expect it of him
Walter Ego: what for, tween?
doctecazoid: re moog: yes indeed
NewYearsTween: I'll bet the area around the university at Chapel Hill is pretty cool
doctecazoid: only passed through that area last visit tween, but from what little i saw, the answer is a resounding yes
Walter Ego: by the way, tween, I'm llanwydd
NewYearsTween: Probably the business climate, Walter
NewYearsTween: and good evening to you, sir
Walter Ego: maybe we might meet up, tween. if it's convenient
cease: how is lili doing with her classes, doc?
doctecazoid: she just had her first one of the new session tonight
doctecazoid: it finished at 9
doctecazoid: she dropped out of a couple of classes last session, they really weren't pushing her intellect much
doctecazoid: hopefully this session will be more challenging
cease: indeed
NewYearsTween: You're coming down Austin way, LL>?
cease: she needs to take certain things to get a job, right?
Walter Ego: no, tween. I meant NC
NewYearsTween: Ah, would love to visit the Moog factory
NewYearsTween: If I had the bux, would be freat to have them make me a Voyager and pick it up at the factory
Walter Ego: robert moog died about a year ago
doctecazoid: yes, the curriculum is geared toward getting her a gig in the info tech. health field
NewYearsTween: Moog: The Movie is wonderful
Walter Ego: I think I may have seen that
Mudhead: I visited Raleigh a few years ago, the people were awsomely nice
Walter Ego: did it have rick wakeman in it?
doctecazoid: gotta see that flick at some point
NewYearsTween: Yhe scene with Rick Wakeman is a gas
NewYearsTween: Oh yes, Doc, you must
doctecazoid: also the one about raymond scott
NewYearsTween: He was a very cool guy
cease: i have to watch that proctor flick now that its been released
cease: the one he was doing during the hour hour days
Walter Ego: did you ever hear the story about when robert moog appeared on stage with Yes?
doctecazoid: no, never heard that story
cease: isnt that redundant, ego?
NewYearsTween: He thought of an assembly of electronics as having a 'spiritual' quality
NewYearsTween: Haven't hear about that
Walter Ego: it was in toronto. wakeman was having trouble with his moog synthesizer during the show and they happened to have an intermission and who should walk onto the stage during the intermission but bob moog
NewYearsTween: But Rick had 8 Mini Moogs in concert (4 on and 4 off stage)
doctecazoid: wow
cease: lotsa bad shit happens in toronto
NewYearsTween: 9 all told including the first one he bought
doctecazoid: lotsa bad shit happens to electronic music gear in a touring situation
NewYearsTween: Certainly some very bad television, cease ;)
doctecazoid: frank zappa had a 'two of everything' touring rule
doctecazoid: always have a backup
cease: bad tv is made everywhere
Walter Ego: he said to wakeman "I might be able to fix that" and started tinkering with it. then the curtain was about to go up and wakeman said "bob we're about to start again" and moog said "I'll just be a moment"
Walter Ego: and the curtain went up and there was Yes with a sixth member of the band
NewYearsTween: The scene is so funny. A guy sold him his Mini at 1/2 price because it was broken. Only played one note...
cease: and that moment lasted...?
doctecazoid: that's a great story
NewYearsTween: Very kewl, Walter :-) (Moog as a tech for RW)
doctecazoid: saw a youtube vid of bob shilling for fairlight
NewYearsTween: Really?
NewYearsTween: Fairlight was a whole different approach
doctecazoid: it was an 80's video - he was on stage at an a.e.s. (audio engineering society) convention
NewYearsTween: huh
doctecazoid: demo-ing the capabilities of the (then new) computer-based fairlight c.m.i. system
doctecazoid: (computer music instrument)
doctecazoid: believe it or not, the fairlight company still exists
doctecazoid: and i happened to see while surfing earlier that they are re-introducing it (the fairlight cmi)
doctecazoid: let me dig up the link...
cease: i guess no cni tonight
doctecazoid: http://www.synthtopia.com/content/2011/01/02/the-new-fairlight-cmi-would-you-pay-17000-for-this-synthesizer/
NewYearsTween: JL was taking a nap. Says he may stop in later
doctecazoid: bob moog demo-ing the fairlight in 1983: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gno7xqWR9fg
NewYearsTween: To be honest, for that sort of bux I'd much rather have a New England Digital Synclavier
NewYearsTween: biab
Mudhead: I'll be back later
||||||||| At 9:41 PM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Mudhead!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
||||||||| "9:41 PM? 9:41 PM!!" says Catherwood, "LiliLamont should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as LiliLamont enters and sits in front of the fireplace.
Walter Ego: our attendance is strangely sparse this evening
doctecazoid: hi sweetie
Walter Ego: Hi Lili!
cease: wow. its lili
LiliLamont: Fuck, everything I wrote was blocked.
cease: how's it going?
doctecazoid: apparently, not well
cease: strange indeed, ego
LiliLamont: It's going okay. I just got off the phone with my daughter and I'm waiting for the timer to tellme that the quiche is done.
cease: how is everything in hamilton?
LiliLamont: And Walter, I agree. Where is everyone?
Walter Ego: I'd try doing quiche sometime but I've never been good at pie crust
cease: i've never been there. I'm sure both it and i are equally happy about that fact
doctecazoid steps away to replenish his vodka tonique
LiliLamont: I am the pie crust queen. Started making pies when I was 11.
cease: we all wish you and your extended family well, lili
LiliLamont: She is now in Burlington. They moved about a year ago. Everyone is sick.
Walter Ego: I've never made a pie but I've wanted to
LiliLamont: They aren't as difficult as you might thing, Walter.
cease: i'm going to a brand new mexian-chinese restaurant for breakfast in vegas, liili. i think both you and fumyo wuld like it, not sure if i willl
||||||||| ah,clem enters at 9:46 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and hurries off to the Haberdashery Barn.
LiliLamont: Ooh! Doc tells me that I have 4 minutes on the timer. Time to cook a veggie side dish.
ah,clem: hi all
Walter Ego: I can't even conceive of mexican-chinese
cease: jose andres is your country's hottest chef, so was lucky to get into it, just opened in vegas a few days ago
Walter Ego: Hey Clem!
cease: hey clem
LiliLamont: Mexican-Chinese? I think I read about that guy.
ah,clem: overslept my nap, must have needed the rest, sorry
Walter Ego: Pablo Chang
LiliLamont: Hi, Clem. Or should I say, Hi, Ah!
ah,clem: hey Lil
cease: wasa piece on 60 minutes about him. said you had a better chance of sitting next to jack nicholson at a lakers game than you did of geting a reservation at his new la restaurant, The Bazaaar
LiliLamont: Excuse me gentlemen, while I put a veggie on to cook.
Walter Ego: I just started writing a film script about mexican immigrants
cease: i read that he introduced tapas to america, which is saying alot. i ate at his first place in dc in 05
cease: are you a mexican immigrant, ego?
Walter Ego: hardly
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Elayne close behind, mumbles something about disrupting his 9:50 PM tree-stunting plans, and rushes off to the anteroom.
Elayne: Evenin' all, and happy Twenty-Eleven!
Walter Ego: Hi Elayne
cease: hi el
Elayne: Lili, my dear! How are you!? Battening down the hatches?
Elayne: Hey Walter, Cat!
ah,clem: hi E!
Walter Ego: as I remember, jeff smith introduces tapas to the US
Elayne: Hey Jimmy Lee!
cease: i am eternally unsuccessfullly on phone to new restaurant in vegas
Walter Ego: introduced
ah,clem: she is making a vegitable.
doctecazoid (as jeff smith): "tapas, u.s. ... u.s., tapas ... i think you two will get along swimmingly."
cease: just like god
ah,clem: ok, she is prepairing a vegitable
Walter Ego: I think smith is deceased but I used to watch him all the time
cease: it would be very hard to eat anything better than the tapas i had in milford, doc
Elayne: Tom, I think Robin and I may actually have enough money between us for that tapas place now. :)
ah,clem: in any case, she will be right back
doctecazoid: cease: 'tis true
Elayne: Rob's been drawing dinosaurs. Pay is lousy, but the dinos are pretty cool looking.
LiliLamont: Hey, Elayne showed up!
cease: both dinos and pay are a good idea
doctecazoid: e: glad to hear robin is working!
Walter Ego: there is a tapas bar about 50 miles from me but I haven't had the chance to try it yet
LiliLamont: I was in the kitchen, Elayne.
cease: el, did you know i was going to vegas in a few weeks?
cease: they are ubiquitous now, ego, and rightfully so
doctecazoid is pretty sure dinner is close to serving - kitchen aromas are heavenly
Elayne: Cat, you need a place to stay? I could call my Mom. :)
Walter Ego: going to cruise the casinos, cat?
Elayne: Tom, I can't believe you and Lili eat later than Robin and I do! :)
cease: no el, i have reservation at the imperial palace. i knew your mom lived there part of a year
doctecazoid: haute cruising
LiliLamont: Well, I had a class tonight at 8.
Elayne: Yep, she's there from October through April.
cease: no ego, i have no interest in gambling., but quite a bit in eating. there are some french chefs whose restaurants in vegas i want to try
Walter Ego: yes lili. doc was telling us
LiliLamont: And I spent some time in Europe and got used to late dinners.
cease: unblievably cheap hotel,el. cheaper than staying home
doctecazoid: yes, chez lili opening delayed this evening. which is ok by me.
Walter Ego: sounds cool, cat. I have no interest in gambling either. I'd never set foot in a casino
Elayne: Mom's is cheaper still. :) On the other hand, too many strings attached, never mind!
Elayne: It's a shame she lives there, Cat, Mom's like your polar opposite food-wise. The blander the better. She eats solely for survival.
cease: i was in vegas the last time in 1970 with my parents, on way from la to saskatoon where i was attending university.
Walter Ego: and I have all the opportunity to do so since I am near so many indian reservations with casinos
Elayne: Erm, except for cakey things.
doctecazoid: vegas casinos are a very depressing experience - there's such an air of desperation there
cease: what struck me as very odd were the slot machines next to the urinals in gas station washrooms
doctecazoid: and the incessant jangling cacophony of the slots is almost an ambient music composition - hypnotic
Walter Ego: that's funny, cat
cease: i used to be like that too, el, before i went to japan and discovered how good food could be. then marrying fumiyo it has been an constant incline
Elayne: Yikes, I just moved the wrong way and hurt myself. Best have a lie-doiwn. Sorry folks.
doctecazoid: slots are EVERYWHERE there in vegas
||||||||| Elayne leaves to catch the 9:58 PM train to New York.
Walter Ego: they won't let you get away from those one-arm bandits
doctecazoid: ouch
ah,clem: see ya E!
cease: by el
ah,clem: be well
Walter Ego: what's your favorite japanese food, cat?
Walter Ego: mine used to be sukyiaki before I went veggie
cease: tonkatsu, which is deep friend pork loin. with the right pig, it's as good as i can imagine good getting. i never understood why it never became popular in the us, except maybe you cant get really good pork in north america
cease: there are very good veggie salads and things, ego. i ate little meat when i first went there
Walter Ego: my favorite is vegetable tempura
doctecazoid: tween, is pork fried loin available in your neck of the country?
Walter Ego: I love miso as well
doctecazoid: oh, he's away
cease: yes ego. fumiyo makes tempura with banana and kiwi, which i particularly like
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
doctecazoid: ten of the crock
cease: ive had good pork twice in 23 years in vancouver. every day in japan
ah,clem: hard to beat a nice stir fry
cease: veggie stews are great too.
Walter Ego: I was introduced to japanese food by a restaurant called Shogun in Rome, NY
cease: stones just showed up in the corner of my screen on skype
ah,clem: yes
Walter Ego: they had this fantastic cole slaw made with apple juice
Walter Ego: instead of vinegar or mayo
cease: there is a hard to get mushroom fumiyo uses in miso shiru we had today, first time for me in at least a year
ah,clem: sounds good
Walter Ego: Shogun introduced me to sake as well
doctecazoid: walt: that's pretty amazing-sounding
cease: no cni tnight, clem?
ah,clem: no, woke up late, and a bit disorganized
doctecazoid: no prob clem
Walter Ego: I'll say you woke up late
cease: we take what we can get, clem
ah,clem: from my nap, Walter
doctecazoid: the lessened daylight this winter has been playing havoc with my sleep schedule
Walter Ego: I have this mp3 collection that tween made for me with the "millenium trilogy"
cease: how is snow in milford, doc and lili?
cease: it keeps threatening to snow here, but not much so far
Walter Ego: we've had quite a bit of snow in the adirondacks
doctecazoid: re snow: we got 2 ft of it xmas weekend, it's about 3/4 melted now but we're going to get another 2-4 inches over the next 24 hrs
LiliLamont: Back again. What a pretty quiche.
cease: i think vegas at night is colder than van
Walter Ego: if you get it, doc, I'm likely to
doctecazoid: the aroma is dee-vine!
cease: oo, i love quiche
doctecazoid: yep walt
Walter Ego: what was in it, Lili?
doctecazoid: wunderground.com says it's on its way
LiliLamont: I've been making comfort food like lasagna and split pea soup for doc to take to work.
LiliLamont: Walter, it's spinach, hame, and gruyere.
Walter Ego: wunderground? I've got to remember that
cease: mm, comfort
doctecazoid: yep
Walter Ego: sounds delicious, Lili
cease: hey doc and lili, can you find out for me the details of those tapas i liked at the place you tok me? i want to talk to the chefs in jose andres' place in vegas
LiliLamont: I roasted a turkey for Christmas and made corn bread for stuffing. It was killer. And I am the gravy queen. Made for some really great meals. I cooked the carcass for stock and I will be making turkey noodle soup with that.
cease: they must be aware of each other, if not outright collaboratiing
LiliLamont: Sure, Cat. That means Doc will have to take me there.
doctecazoid: walt: yeah i've been a faithful wenderground.com visitor for quite a long time
doctecazoid: wunderground.com
cease: oh, what suffering, lili
LiliLamont: Walter, I ment ham, not hame.
Walter Ego: I understood that, Lili
cease: i think tapas, or small meals of some nature, are my future
doctecazoid: we brought up a large cooler in which she brined the turkey in salt water
doctecazoid: lili is it time for me to come down and set the table?
cease: that pork loin tapa was spectacular, lili
LiliLamont: Doc honey, dinner is ready.
LiliLamont: Yesh!
doctecazoid: i guess that's a yes
cease: eat well folks
Walter Ego: do you actually put pieces of toast over your sangria glass, cat?
doctecazoid: well gang time for lili & me to tuck in
ah,clem: great to see you both, Doc and Lili
LiliLamont: Pieces of toast?
Walter Ego: its traditional but probably not essential
cease: no, ego
ah,clem: eat well
Walter Ego: bon appetit, folks
doctecazoid: cat i'll be in a position to take lili to bistro basque for a light nosh next friday (paycheck day) - we'll try and get you the details re your meal then
LiliLamont: We will, thanks. We'll be back.
doctecazoid: thanks all and g'nite ... ttfn ttyl and all that .... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
||||||||| Around 10:13 PM, doctecazoid walks off into the sunset...
cease: Fumiyo and I spent several weeks in Spain drinking sangria with no toast
Walter Ego: well, jeff smith said you are supposed to put toast over the top of your glass of sangria. for what that's worth
||||||||| Catherwood walks up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'Bunnyboy', just granted probation at 10:15 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
Bunnyboy: yodel
Walter Ego: Hey Bunnyboy!
cease: hey bunny
ah,clem: hey Bunn
Bunnyboy: What haps, sweet chaps?
cease: yes, ego, i think that was the idea in an earlier century, to keep the flies from dirnkng the wine or something
Bunnyboy: Just missed doc and Lili. Confound their appetites!
cease: did you watch the proctor flick bun?
ah,clem: sounds about right, Cat
Walter Ego: proctor flick? what's it called?
ah,clem: "don't mind the flies, we won't weigh 'em"
Bunnyboy: cat: Sadly, no. It's in one of the big heaps.
cease: yes bun, rare appearance from lili
cease: a safe place
Bunnyboy: I watched CATFISH, last night. Quite a trip.
cease: many episodes of hour hour are about him in new york making the flick
cease: i must order it, but i hear its depressing. i'm no fan of depressing
Bunnyboy: A SAFE PLACE (1971), directed by Henry Jaglom.
cease: thats it. havent watched it yet?
Walter Ego: what's Catfish about?
Bunnyboy: Recently released, as part of a multiple disc Criterion set of items from that films' producers (FIVE EASY PIECES, LAST PICTURE SHOW, etc.)
||||||||| It's 10:20 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| NewYearsTween - dead from measles
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Bunnyboy: It's a documentary...or might not be.
Walter Ego: I have one Criterion film. Lord of the Flies
Bunnyboy: That's really all I can say, without spilling the beans.
Bunnyboy: I posted it 3 out of 5 stars, on Flixster. It's got some unique points...but you don't have to push it to the top of your queue.
Walter Ego: when I was in 6th or 7th grade I bought a film called Great Horror Movies and for some reason lord of the flies was in the book
ah,clem: well, going to call it a night, see ya next week
ah,clem: happy new year
Bunnyboy: I recently re-watched an 18 year old VHS dub of ISLAND OF LOST SOULS...because I remember seeing stills in FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND, as a kid.
||||||||| At 10:22 PM, ah,clem vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
Walter Ego: so I thought it was a horror movie. then years later I had to read the film in HS and it had nothing to do with horror but then they showed us the film and it was pretty good
Walter Ego: Island of Lost Souls was in Great Horror Movies as well
Walter Ego: I watched as many of those films as I could
Bunnyboy: ...and the new, well-intentioned group that relaunched FMOF had a recent, extensive article and cool cover, about same.
cease: by clem
Bunnyboy: My dad taught me to be a proper ghoul.
cease: was he a ghoulfather?
Walter Ego: there were about 100 films listed in that book but some of them absolutely didn't belong there like The Boy With Green Hair
Bunnyboy: He was always reading horror and mystery books, and taking me to scary films.
Bunnyboy: Dean Stockwell, yes.
cease: i found that flick very scary, ego
Walter Ego: I saw that film many years later but there is no way it was a horror film
cease: i have no interest in being scared, or saddened.
Bunnyboy: Then US politics aren't for you, cat.
cease: true enought, bun
Walter Ego: I was a horror film buff when I was a kid
Bunnyboy: So, there are really only 3 recorded Magic Mushroom FST pieces?
Walter Ego: I liked the early Universal horror films best
cease: no bun, i have most of them
cease: i dont know why they said that on rfo
cease: i have given jessen some stuff they didnt have. i dont think anyone has last exit to fresno
Bunnyboy: Maybe it's because that's the only MM "bonus" shows they put on DUKE.
Bunnyboy: I dunno. Just sayin'.
cease: did you get your copy, ben?
Bunnyboy: Is Bland here?
Bunnyboy: Or Franklin?
cease: where?
Bunnyboy: ben or bun?
Walter Ego: he either has the hemp or the evening paper
Bunnyboy: I ain't got DUKE yet, durn it.
Bunnyboy: Perched by the mailbox...
cease: i think jessen is still tryiing to assemble the krla/ kmet shows, from 67-68
Bunnyboy: I'm contenting myself with the long-awaited Rocky and Bullwinkle Complete Series set.
cease: he's had that please contribute your old tapes plea on the firesign site as long as its been up, which is quite a while
cease: id love to see that too, bun
Bunnyboy: Them 60s shows might be in a Volume 2.
Bunnyboy: I guess, again.
cease: i had my tape recorder set to record the kmet shows, but only recorded the jack poet ads
Walter Ego: well, I've got some emails to write. I might be back later. if not, see you next week.
cease: which are the only things they have presented from that show
cease: by ego keep em egoing
cease: keep on hopping, bunny
||||||||| "Hey cease!" ... cease turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 10:35 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...
Bunnyboy: See ya, folks!
Bunnyboy claps hands..."aaand Scene".
||||||||| Bunnyboy is defenestrated just as the clock strikes 10:37 PM.
||||||||| Catherwood escorts NewYearsTween inside, makes a note of the time (10:38 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
NewYearsTween: el crasho
NewYearsTween: Have a great new year, all...
||||||||| It's 10:50 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| NewYearsTween - dead from the yaws
||||||||| Walter Ego - dead from the common cold
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| 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 steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'FireFlungLee', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 2:18 AM" -- then he slowly retires back into the sitting room...

I didn’t hear him enter,
but my nostrils flared at the smell of his perfume

-- Pyramid Pachtuli.
There was only one joker in Los Angeles
sensitive enough to wear that scent,
and I had to find out who he was!

Good afternoon, Mr Danger. I’m Rocky Rococo.

Thanks half-pint.
You just saved me a lot of investigative work.


Betty Jo Bialowsky!

I hadn’t heard that name since college.

Everyone knew her as “Nancy.”

Then it all came rushing back to me
like the hot kiss at the end of a wet fist!

It was Pig Nite at the Ohm Mane Padme Sigma House . . .

We had escaped from the crowd
and stood trembling underneath the dwarf maples . .


Four hours later,
I parked my car in the carriage house,
and walked up the gray gravel driveway
between a row of drawf maples,
toward the pillared entrance
of the Same Mansion.

It had been snowing in Santa Barbera
ever since the top of the page,
and I had to shake the cornstarch off my mukluks
as I lifted the heavy,
obsidian door knocker.

Hey, in there!
Open up!
Your door knocker fell off!

What’s all this brouhaha?
Ha ha ha.
Ha ha ha ha!
Ha ha ha ha ha Door slams shut. Wait a minute! Don’t you want this door knocker? (Off muffled) I already have one.

But this is yours!

||||||||| FireFlungLee runs out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's FireFlungLee?! It's 2:19 AM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 3 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| 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."
