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 July 14, 2011 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, July 14, 2011 - 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 accompanies Dexter Fong inside, makes a note of the time (9:00 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
||||||||| Outside, the 9:00 PM crosstown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving cease coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
cease: hey dex
Dexter Fong: Hey Cat

Dexter Fong: I fear you are correct
llanwydd: "several or more" is an interesting expression
Dexter Fong: Okay?
llanwydd: I made mock chicken tikka masala
llanwydd: came out great
||||||||| Catherwood ushers TweenMeltOnRye in through the front door at 9:06 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
Dexter Fong: Knew it was more than two, hence several...not sure how many more, hence "or more"
TweenMeltOnRye: Hola

Principalpoop: my palate is ruined, KFC and pizza hut and mcdonalds
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 9:43 PM and Bunnyboy bounds out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.

cease: along with the comic, i think the beats in general on top of the surrealists i saw in recent museum show, very good for my brain
Bunnyboy: INCEPTION was fun.

Dexter Fong: CONCEPTION was better

Bunnyboy: llan: Au contraire. PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC, HAXAN, MODERN TIMES...

TweenMeltOnRye: Yo Doc

TweenMeltOnRye: Yeah, Dreamscape was very good for its time
cease: i'll look for thwt, bun
doctecazoid: i liked inception a lot - but it's exhausting to watch at times
Bunnyboy: I remember, the big buzz on DREAMSCAPE, when it was released, was that there were FOUR different VFX houses working on it...
cease: way too much gratuitous hollywood violence for me, doc. but thats like saying vegas has too mch gambing
Bunnyboy: Now, you'll find a half dozen on any commercial...
Dexter Fong: Hiyah Doc
Bunnyboy: oh, hiya DOc!
doctecazoid: nolan seemed to feel that no one would be able to follow the story he wanted to tell without cramming a ton of exposition into the movie
Bunnyboy: Hans Zimmer's score was bone-shattering.
Dexter Fong: Bunny: Finally got that 18 inch subwooker eh?
doctecazoid: and then there was the relentlessly pulsating breathless score
Dexter Fong: woofer
Bunnyboy: It was really a tossup between Zimmer and Reznor & Ross for last year's best score.

Principalpoop: don't stop now doc
Dexter Fong: Keep on teching
doctecazoid: i loved the social network - both the movie and the score

doctecazoid: i think the firesign license plate frames are coming back - to the firesale store, soon
cease: broad stance musicals
TweenMeltOnRye: What were some of Grin's hits? I can't recall
Bunnyboy: ReeeDONKulous. I was so impressed.
TweenMeltOnRye: Cool Doc, now all I need is a car
Dexter Fong: Tween: Can't tell you it's been so long
TweenMeltOnRye: I remember liking the band
Dexter Fong: He can play that gitar just like ringin' a bell
Principalpoop: Please come to Austin for the Springtime
Bunnyboy: She said: "Who ARE you?"
TweenMeltOnRye: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grin_%28band%29
Dexter Fong: No you come to New South Wales for the fall
doctecazoid: i too am a nin fan - always have been
Principalpoop: Please Mister Robinson, I just want to talk with her
Dexter Fong: Here son, take this plastic item with you
doctecazoid: pp: mixing your musical references there?
TweenMeltOnRye: "The single "White Lies" got heavy airplay on Washington, D.C.-area radio." - yep that's where I heard it, when I was living near DC
Bunnyboy: They used "Hurt" on a HOMICIDE: LIFE ON THE STREET closer, many moons ago.
Principalpoop: it was garbled in the translation
Dexter Fong: Tween: Nils grew up in the Baltimore/DC area and was in bands as early as 16 years old
TweenMeltOnRye: DC/MD area myself
Dexter Fong: He was also pretty young when he joined young/Carzy Haorse
Principalpoop: Mama Cass was from the DC area too
cease: how is the firesign site, doc?
Bunnyboy: I gotta think the Emmy nomination folks hate David Simon's guts. Same deal with THE WIRE, in the day.
TweenMeltOnRye: Didn't know he worked with Neil Young
cease: good thing he didnt join crazu hearse
Dexter Fong: One of the founding members of Crazy Horse
doctecazoid: not sure why they snubbed treme. horror genre usually gets the cold shoulder. game of thrones got in for the soft core porn aspect with high production values and the whole faux medieval thing.
TweenMeltOnRye: Yeah, kudos to Doc and Merl and whoever for getting it back up so fast
TweenMeltOnRye: Nil was Crazy Horse?
Dexter Fong: Yes Tween
TweenMeltOnRye: I knew Young was, of course

Dexter Fong: Also lead guitar iwth Springsteen off and on
Bunnyboy: Peter Dinklage is great, and got a nom today.
TweenMeltOnRye: I _love_ Crazy Horse
doctecazoid: thanx tween - it was a "drop everything and get the firesign site back up" situation for sure!
TweenMeltOnRye: So that was Neil and Nils bandying guitars about, eh? Cool
doctecazoid: bb: i tried watching some of it, i felt like it was trying too hard to win me over. prolly need to stick with it. will try and catch the reruns leading into season 2.
TweenMeltOnRye: You did well, Doc :-)
Dexter Fong: Young wasn't exactly a member of CH, CH was his back up band
cease: i'm sure the lads appreciate it doc
TweenMeltOnRye: Well, the Neil Young and Crazy Horse album is the one I'm familiar with
Principalpoop: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKO9d0U-uIM
Dexter Fong: Yes
doctecazoid: in some ways, having to revive the firesign site was a good thing: it made both of us revisit the site, navigation, and cross-linkage. there is a lot of room for improvement, i'll probably spend some time working on it during my recovery.
Bunnyboy: There are actually a few gaspers, in GOT. Not as many as in Season 3 of BREAKING BAD, though.
cease: the micahel moore song that enes with rockin in the free world
cease: would not have been that powerful without neil's song
cease: farenheit 911

Principalpoop: neer? is that canadian?
Bunnyboy: ER purposeful?
doctecazoid: a common misspelling, good to make sure it takes people to the right place.
cease: to my advantage, i hope, doc
cease: me? spell?
cease: barely see
doctecazoid: no use crying over spelled melk
Principalpoop: i neer dro leers

Bunnyboy: Beat Street Jack! "Click Here Now!"
TweenMeltOnRye: lol
doctecazoid: click me baby, click me...
TweenMeltOnRye: God one, Bun
Bunnyboy: Or izzit BeatMeatJacque?
Principalpoop: Regular or Premium? Click
Dexter Fong: If I could just break on thru to the other side, I'd light your fire
Principalpoop: you know that it would be untrue, if I said we could not get much higher
cease: the firesign never tried hard enough to sell out
Dexter Fong: Catherwood, pass the doobie to the left please
||||||||| Catherwood steps alongside Dexter Fong and queries "Someone mention my name?"
Bunnyboy: I checked an OnDemand ROBOT CHICKEN ep, and caught the jaw-dropping "Ron Jeremy's Butter" scene.
cease: if they succeeded, tjhey'd no longer be the firesigns
doctecazoid: wow bb, that sounds ... eye-opening ...
Bunnyboy: No, it was actually...butter.
Dexter Fong can't believe it's butter
