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 March 10, 2011 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Babe close behind, grumbles something about disrupting his 7:02 PM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the anteroom.
Babe: Well, that’s it! Here’s your keys. Goodbye, friends and happy motoring back on the Freeway, which is already in progress . . . !
Babe: Nice feel. Let’s see . . . [sings to himself] “Oh how can you be in two places at once when you’re not anywhere at a-a-all!” . . . I think I’ll give this old baby a spin on the Freeway . . .
Babe: Freeway, . . . . that way, . . . . OK!
||||||||| At 7:03 PM, Babe hurries out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
||||||||| 8:21 PM: ah,clem jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past hour!"
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern", dwarf & bozos'
||||||||| At 8:23 PM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, ah,clem!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and intones "Announcing 'cease', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:00 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, March 10, 2011 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
cease: come back babe. paul bunyon needs you
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood snorts derisively: "9:05 PM and late as usual, it's llanwydd, just back from Princeton."
llanwydd: good evening
cease: hello llan
cease: i thought i was going to be alone here
cease: how is acting work, llan?
||||||||| Outside, the 9:07 PM downtown bus from Hellmouth pulls away, leaving Principalpoop coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Principalpoop: what is the rod?
cease: hi poop. hello urine
llanwydd: well, guess what I'm having, cat. a tall glass of shiraz with a splash of orange juice, two slices of orange and two slices of apple
llanwydd: you gave me the idea
llanwydd: Hey Princi
cease: a man who has hit far too many homers for the yankees, poop
Principalpoop: throw out the shiraz and put in sloe gin
cease: wow, sound sangria-esque
llanwydd: and some ice cubes as well
cease: you need a seltzer of some nature. i'm using president's choice sprarkling lemonade
Principalpoop: what did you do with the rest of the orange and apple? come on now
cease: yeah yeah cubes
cease: i always slice up a granny smith and a big orange to make sangria
Principalpoop: seltzer works good for seltzer
llanwydd: I put the rest of the fruit in the fridge for tomorrow
cease: by which i mean something carbonated
Principalpoop: collin mix, but ok ok
cease: you're unliklely to ever get as involved with booze as me, llan. good for you
llanwydd: I''ve got diet lemon lime soda in mine. not much
Principalpoop: you guys are pods!!!!
llanwydd: you having a sangria too, cat?
cease: i went to the almost last night of a vancouver institution last night
Principalpoop: making weird sangria things, run for your lives
Principalpoop: oops only me with the pods
cease: high end restaurant. i couldnt drink any booze cuz i was driving. bummer
cease: in vewgas or other places, food good enough not to need booze. not so here
llanwydd: I haven't been to any high end restaurants since I've been in florida
Principalpoop: somebody should drink a singapore sling for me
cease: i run for my liver
llanwydd: my favorite is a lebanese bakery on International Speedway Blvd
cease: my first girl friend loved singapore slings. i loved how she got when she drank them
cease: this is more than 40 years ago
Principalpoop: i forget how they taste, they and gin and tonic were a spring drink for me
llanwydd: I saw a tv special about an amazing vegas buffet
llanwydd: it's very unlikely I'll ever set foot in a casino though
cease: wow i hear dwarf but where is bambiclem?
Principalpoop: i don't have my headphones on
cease: you have to walk thru casinos to get to the lobby, et all in vegas
Principalpoop: dog wants out bbl
cease: i have no interest in gambling but eating is kind of to me what acid was to tim leary
llanwydd: well, leary was looney tunes
cease: as we know from 1st firsign album. tiny dr. tim
cease: odd the firesign seemed most down on leary cuz he was drunk, but considering how much alcohol was consumed during firesign album production, that is kind of hypocritical
llanwydd: its "bike week" here in FL and the place is rather noisy
llanwydd: I didn't know fst were big drinkers
cease: as long as its not bisexual week. than it would be really noisy
cease: yeah we tend to think of them as dopers, but....
llanwydd: I know they were into the white stuff. they spilled the beans about that
cease: austin could show up here any minute and say no, they were never drunk
llanwydd: lol
llanwydd: I need to get a firesign video one of these days. I've never owned one
llanwydd: I've seen some great stuff on youtube though
cease: be thankfull of than, llan. i have most of them and they all suck
cease: no you havent
llanwydd: hmm?
llanwydd: I nearly died laughing when I watched Frame Me Pretty
llanwydd: I watched an italian film called Allegro Non Troppo today
llanwydd: kind of inspired by fantasia but not a kid's film
cease: both of those flicks sound familiar
llanwydd: Frame Me Pretty is a live Nick Danger piece that I saw on Youtube
cease: there is some firesign vid that doesnt suck immediately but you watch it enough and you really wish you wrere doing something else.
cease: unlike listening to their albums
cease: i know llan
cease: i have many hours of firesign video. it all sucks
llanwydd: well, they were busier doing audio material. video wasn't their forte
cease: the closest to non sucking is the proc/berg ann arbour thing they did in i think 71
cease: llan, indeed they often talk about about that.
cease: vid aint for them
cease: maybe qwhy they never got as famous as python
cease: vid has much greater audience than aud
llanwydd: very strange that there are only three of us here at almost 9:30
Principalpoop: it is because they offended corporations
Principalpoop: back
cease: i dont think so
cease: carlin and pryor offended far more corpses and got rich doing so
cease: unlike fst
Principalpoop: i think so, python attacked the old sacred cows
cease: even fucking eddie izzard
cease: who is as good as fst, ive seen him live twice here in van
Principalpoop: they were less insightful than fireside, fireside was dangerous lol
cease: he was MUCH better than them
Principalpoop: but that is now, corporations are not afraid anymore of it lol
Principalpoop: there was a window, back then, we might have reined them in
cease: corps aint afriand of anything anymore. they have your supine court on their side
cease: only on the net or facebook or something. look at richard metzger
cease: the firesigns new BFF
llanwydd: of course, you really have to pay attention to fst to understand them. I don't know of any other artists who were as much like that
cease: yes and no, llan
cease: there have long been comedians who expected intelligence on the part of their audiences
cease: think of lord buckley, for example. long before firesign
Principalpoop: name one? lol
cease: he was dead before they started
Principalpoop: in america
llanwydd: I'm not familiar with lord buckley
cease: he was making al capon laugh at his surrealism during prohinhibition
||||||||| Elayne steps in at 9:32 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
Principalpoop: hi E
Elayne: Evenin' all!
llanwydd: Hi Elayne
Elayne: Hello Cat, Llan, PrinPoop!
Principalpoop: name an intellectual comedian from the old days E
Principalpoop: firesign holds that ground I say
cease: chicago guy who pretended to be a british lord speaking black dialect in the 20s. capone gave him his own nightclub. definitne influence on firesign
Principalpoop: carlin was clever, no doubt
cease: hey el, i was just telilng llan about lord buckly. you think he influenced firesign?
cease: poop: fuck you. carlin was clever in the sense that firesign were clever.
Principalpoop: was he on vinyl? they probably did not go to his nightclub in chicago
Elayne: I'll have to ask Robin, Cat. I don't know from Lord Buckley.
llanwydd: it would be interesting to hear a standup comic from the 20s. are there any recordings?
cease: there was no vinyl in the 20s
Principalpoop: i don't think carlin would even want to be called an intellectual
Principalpoop: the firesign guys cannot avoid it
cease: ok we have a connection to buckly. wew meaning elayne and other falafal readers
llanwydd: intellectual is a vague term
Elayne: Robin doesn't know who Lord Buckley was either.
cease: that arizona shirnk whose name i forget was a friend of dell close
cease: close was a freiedn of buckley, along with starting sctv
Principalpoop: many serious and topical references necessary to grasp the commentary?
llanwydd: I had heard of him and I believe I've seen his picture but I'm not familiar with his act
Principalpoop: that is intellectual, using the intellect, come on now
cease: he wrote to el's mag falafal and thats how i got ot know him .
cease: ok bergman used to play buckly on his radio freee oz shows
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and pipes up "Announcing 'no_anchovies', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:36 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the anteroom...
llanwydd: I like falafel sandwiches but I don't know the mag
no_anchovies: sniffs...
Elayne: Hey No Anch!
cease: my introduction to buckly aftrer he died.
cease: hi no
llanwydd: Hey Paul
Principalpoop: my dander is up, woof woof, hi no anchovies
Elayne: Lord Buckley wrote to FALaFal? When?
no_anchovies: Lord Buckley was brilliant.
llanwydd: you know lord buckley, n_a?
Elayne doesn't remember Lord Buckley, she is about to Google him.
cease: no llan, the arizona dude did. who knew dell close, who was buckleys' freiend
cease: mayb e you remember his name el. very famous firesign freimd
llanwydd: I was saying I had heard of him but I've never been very familiar
no_anchovies: he was once on Groucho's "You Bet Your Life" by the way, if you're interested... it's on one of the dvd sets of it.
cease: dr. fuckin arizona shirnk
cease: yes indeed no
Elayne: There we go: http://www.lordbuckley.com/LBC_Home/LBC_Home_A_Primer.htm
cease: he is also an actor on the austin play Down Under Danger
cease: firesign actor=del close=buckley is no big stretch
llanwydd: I only remember one thing I read about lord buckley. he challenged a heckler to a fight and the heckler wiped the floor with him
cease: hows it going, el?
Elayne: Okay, it says he died in November of 1960, he couldn't have written to FAlaFal.
cease: indeed, el. who was the ariziona dude?
llanwydd: where does the name falafal come from elayne?
Principalpoop: he sounds like trouble for corporations too, maybe that is why I never heard of him
Elayne: I don't remember, Cat. As my ex would say, that was a life ago.
Elayne: Llan, it was short for "Four-Alarm FIRESIGFNal."
cease: indeed
Principalpoop: you don't remember hows it going? lol
llanwydd: cool
Elayne: FAlaFal, I believe was the way we did it with the upper and lower case.
Principalpoop: severe short term memory loss that
no_anchovies: Hey Llan... to paraphrase George Carlin: What are you doing in New Jersey?
cease: he was the doctor in charge of dtermining who was crazy in arizona
Elayne: Cat, it's going a little better than yesterday, but I still have a godawful foot cramp that hasn't let off yet.
llanwydd: oh, does nino have me in the wrong place again?
Principalpoop: that is a tough job
Elayne: I took percoset for the first time ever last night, the pain was so bad.
cease: i know he had an influence on the firesigns
Elayne: Little better today, but I think I'll still be dosing and dozing.
cease: i hope you are getting healthier and healthier, el
Principalpoop: eat more calcium, or less, do something, that is not fun
cease: is robin getting lots of paid work?
Elayne: Thanks, Cat. Robin is not getting any additional paid work, but he's very busy with the Aussie thing.
llanwydd: I've never taken percocet. the strongest thing I ever took was hydrocodone after I had a difficult root canal
no_anchovies is pickin' at his Sneezer's Chicken...
cease: busy is good
Elayne: Aborigines against drugs. There's a time for using them, and a time for reeeee-fusing them.
llanwydd: no, it was an extraction now that I think of it
Principalpoop: we take drugs seriously in my family
no_anchovies: and a time for REusing them
Elayne: Llan, the Percocet didn't seem to actually dull the pain, it just put me to sleep pretty quickly.
llanwydd: yes, nino has me in princeton of all places
llanwydd: like I'm ivy league material
cease: sleep is good
llanwydd: well, that might be good elayne. I like to sleep through pain too
Principalpoop: i am unknown, maybe my 20 proxy loop has hidden me, I can visit the bad sites again
Principalpoop: time wounds all heels, ooops wait
no_anchovies: Catherwood, get Elayne some more drugs.
||||||||| Catherwood gets elayne some more drugs.
llanwydd: just roll a couple of bombers and leave them on the side table
Elayne: Thanks, Catherwood! Now bring me some happy pizza to go with them.
||||||||| Catherwood brings Elayne some happy pizza to go with them.

llanwydd: best restaurant I ever went to in nyc was an indian curry place near town hall the night I saw FST. I wish I could remember the name of it
cease: llan, i thikn the reason the food was as good as it was, was because of the firesign
llanwydd: could be, cat
doctecazoid: ok, poll: is it correct to characterize "not insane" as firesign's contractual obligation album? thought?
cease: the reason my first meal in vegas was as good as it was, was because of the visual imagery i'd seen on the elevator on the way up to the 65th floor
Caterino: I remember that place and as you know, was at Town Hall also, mid section left
doctecazoid: thought?
doctecazoid: thoughts?
llanwydd: I had a really great day in nyc before I saw the show. really big day
Bambi: from Klok's buttons: http://bambismusings.wordpress.com/klok-brian/
doctecazoid: i used to think of it as their contractual obligation album, but it may be a case of the guys trying to bite off more than they could chew
llanwydd: caterino, are we talking about the same show?
cease: the firesign have fucked up at least as much as they havent
llanwydd: what place do you remember caterino?
doctecazoid: but not by design, right?

no_anchovies: Catherwood, get us some nice Saag Paneer.
||||||||| Catherwood gets us some nice saag paneer.
doctecazoid: everyone fucks up - and part of firesign's charm is their willingness to walk the tightrope of improv as far as they could
Principalpoop: no underwear will be worn by the year 2020
doctecazoid: not many are willing to take those kind of risks these days
llanwydd: saag is great
Principalpoop: saag paneer is a happy pizza brandname?
llanwydd: so saag paneer is spinach curry with cheese
llanwydd: I meant no, not so
Principalpoop: sounds like a good pizza topping
Caterino: I subscribed Bambi, I am also a wordpress.
