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 August 04, 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, August 04, 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 enters with live cat soap close behind, mumbles something about disrupting his 9:00 PM tree-stunting plans, and hurries off to the anteroom.
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and snorts derisively "Announcing 'Merlyn', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:00 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the sitting room...
Merlyn: hey cat coap
Merlyn: soap*
live cat soap: hey merl
live cat soap: any more news on firesign shows?
Merlyn: I haven't heard anything
live cat soap: are they still playing portland
live cat soap: ossie gave me the theatrre for the kirkland show but i'd rather go to portland, a city unfamiliar to me.
Merlyn: I think that's the plan
Merlyn: I don't really know
Merlyn: they probably don't want to publicly announce anything until it's nailed down.
live cat soap: makes sense
||||||||| Dexter Fong sneaks in around 9:04 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last night's "unpleasant incident."
Merlyn: So I'd guess nothing is completely settled yet
live cat soap: its easier for me to get to portland than kirkland
live cat soap: and spaking of portland, her'e dex
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'llanwyddorsomeonelikehim', just granted probation at 9:05 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: good evening, dear friends
live cat soap: hi llan
Merlyn: hey llan
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: granted probation?
Dexter Fong: Hey Cat, Merlyn and llan
Merlyn: hey, probation is good
Merlyn: not as good as "granted libation"
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: lol
Dexter Fong: Catherwood, please grant llanwydd a lovely libation
||||||||| Catherwood steps alongside Dexter Fong and says "oh, fuck off Dexter Fong!"
Dexter Fong: My my
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: maybe he didn't like the word "grant"
Dexter Fong: Someone (Catherwood) is of their meds
||||||||| Catherwood ignores Dexter Fong
live cat soap: libations are always good
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: catherwood, get me a grant
||||||||| Catherwood gets llanwyddorsomeonelikehim a grant.
Dexter Fong: Oh, fuck off Catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood steps up to Dexter Fong and yells "Stop typing gibberish, Dexter Fong!"
Merlyn: He knows 'get' but not 'grant'
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: lol
||||||||| "9:10 PM? 9:10 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Elayne should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Elayne enters and sits in the comfy chair.
live cat soap: hi el
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: how's the old same place treating you, catherwood?
||||||||| Catherwood pretends not to hear llanwyddorsomeonelikehim
Dexter Fong: Hi Elayne
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: Hi Elayne
live cat soap: always good to see you here
Merlyn: hi E
Elayne: Evenin' all, from somewhere On The Road!
live cat soap: you're in the middle of a kerouac novel?
Dexter Fong: Working late again E?
Elayne: I think this bus of bozos just ran over Jack Kerouac
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: is a kerouac anything like a bivouac?
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: or a maniac?
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and announces "Announcing 'BBQ'dTweeny', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:13 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the anteroom...
Elayne: no Dex, playing late, at the bowling alley around the corner from your old office building
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: Hey Tween
live cat soap: hi tween
BBQ'dTweeny: Only if you set up camp on the road, LLan
Dexter Fong: E: Are you in a bowling league?
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: lol
live cat soap: ti jean? he be dead
BBQ'dTweeny: You know like an armadillo ;)
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: no, I'm in a league of my own
live cat soap: you bowl, el?
Dexter Fong: And do you wear really kitschy bowling shirts with Stashoo printed over the pocket
live cat soap: i used to love bowling when i was a kid. even had my own ball. electric blue
Elayne: Goodness no Dex. I can't bowl to save my life
BBQ'dTweeny: Yeah, I had fun bowling as well, cease
Elayne: it was a social gathering w coworkers
Merlyn: I've done some bowling, not lately
Dexter Fong: Better learn, Elayne, someday you may have to
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: I've done a few bowls, myself
BBQ'dTweeny: Roller skated quite a bit as well
Elayne: i almost got up to 50
live cat soap: we have 5 pin bowling in canada. much easier
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: yeah, I prefered roller skating over bowling
BBQ'dTweeny: You were also part of a bonging league?
Elayne: food was good though
live cat soap: have any of you seen breaking bad? i'm sure bunny has
Elayne: isn't that an Alan Moore comic.the League of Extraordinary Bongs?
BBQ'dTweeny: Hit 106 in Austin today
BBQ'dTweeny: toasty
live cat soap: wow
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: holy cow
live cat soap: sounds like la
Dexter Fong: E: You're thinking of the League of Extraordinary Bowlers
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: it hasn't hit a hundred since I've been in florida
Elayne: Zoicks. Tween!
BBQ'dTweeny: Really? It's benn that bad there? I have considered that we're having some sort of contest with Phoenix
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: it's been hot though
Elayne: Perhaps I am at that, Dex
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: fortunately I'll never spend another summer in FL
live cat soap: vancouver is paradise this summer.
Elayne: almost home. Will log on there
||||||||| Elayne leaves at 9:20 PM, singing "Oh, I'm just a little fishy, floating in the sea, and there ain't no hook that's smart enough to catch the likes of me..."
live cat soap: i cant imagine spending summer anywhere else
live cat soap: winter can be spent better elsewhere
Merlyn: the NW coast seems pretty warm in the winter to me….
BBQ'dTweeny: Catherwood tell everybody they're groovy
||||||||| Catherwood snubs BBQ'dTweeny
Dexter Fong: ouch
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: the NE coast certainly isn't
BBQ'dTweeny: Well, I never...
Merlyn: catherwood, say "everybody's groovy"
||||||||| Catherwood says ""everybody's groovy""
live cat soap: merl, compared to min, it's all warm
Merlyn: why that dirty, double-quoter...
live cat soap: now that i've discovered vegas, i expect to spend a lot more time there in the cold monthes here
Dexter Fong: I thought you didn't much care for Vegas, Cat?
Dexter Fong: Other than some of the food
live cat soap: you know the origin of the term "groovy?' from american jazzz musicians in the 30s, tryiing to record grooves
||||||||| Catherwood ushers H. Stones inside, makes a note of the time (9:28 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
live cat soap: the food. dex.
Merlyn: the lost city of Vegas
live cat soap: hi stones
H. Stones: Greetings
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: I'm too young for wayne newton and tony bennett shows
Dexter Fong: Hey stones, good to see you again
Merlyn: hey stones
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: Hey Stones
live cat soap: if i can be a regular, and these already great chefs prepare especially good dishes knowing i'd appreciatre them
H. Stones: i trust i find you all in fine fettle
live cat soap: can see that happening
Dexter Fong: llan: How about Cher or Celine?
live cat soap: they already do it for assorted celebs
H. Stones: must go then come back, the page is giving me some grief
live cat soap: i dont wantr to be famous, just well fed
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: yes there are plenty of sordid celebs in vegas
live cat soap: speaking of celebs, here's stones.
Dexter Fong: Stop molesting those pages Stones, then they won't "give you grief"
||||||||| "Hey H. Stones!" ... H. Stones turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 9:31 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...
Merlyn: they're sordid in alphabetical order
Merlyn: or maybe diabolical order
||||||||| Catherwood stomps in at 9:31 PM, dragging H. Stones by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this bozo?"
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: lol
H. Stones: stop torturing me Ethel
live cat soap: but it's really good grief, mrs charlie brown
Dexter Fong: Aye, and would yelikeme to start torturing your regular
H. Stones: my regular what ?
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: just your regular
Dexter Fong: How should I know if your regular Stones
H. Stones: i like to consider myself special
Dexter Fong: Good job
Dexter Fong: I'm going for spacial
live cat soap: im watching piers morgan vs paul mc cartrney on local news
H. Stones: well i have put on some weight due to the medication but not that much
live cat soap: and an actual limey shows up here. what are the odds of that?
H. Stones: Piers Moron is just another twat
live cat soap: so is half the human race. that's why it continues to exist
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: he's mor gan than he piers
H. Stones: and as i have said before, Paul McCartney is to music what Tom Cruise is to acting, i hope that clears it up
live cat soap: may i peer amid your tiara?
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: not so, stones. tom cruise can't even act
live cat soap: oh idon't know, stones. i enjoyed some beatle tunes her wrote
live cat soap: i thought he was good in Magnolia
H. Stones: he wrote a couple of half decent ones but it was so long ago that we still thatched our roofs
live cat soap: but expecting cruze to act isnt the point. it's casting, not acting
H. Stones: he now reckons that the Murdoch toilet paper hacked his phone, shows how desperate he is for publicity of any kind now
live cat soap: woody allen wasnt acting in annie hall. can you imagine someone else playiing that role?
live cat soap: with al the money he has, why would he care, stones?
Dexter Fong: Kuke Wilson
Dexter Fong: Luke
H. Stones: the IRS
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: if he wasn't acting, he would be woody allen, not alvy singer
H. Stones: having just studied todays closing stock prices, we will all be broke soon i suspect
Dexter Fong: Cat: Luke Wilson in Paris Nights plays a part WOODY WOULD HAVE PLAYED BACK IN THE DAY AND REALLY FITS INTO Allen's dialogue nicely
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: but I get your point, cat
live cat soap: no, the loony tanked today, great news
live cat soap: i'll watch it when it appears in dvd store, dex. am imterested in that period
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: did the space shuttle come back yet? I haven't been following
Dexter Fong: CAt: I think you'll get a kick out of it
live cat soap: am watching dvds of breaking bad, which my friend recommended
Dexter Fong: I understand breaking is something special
live cat soap: we got 4 monthes feee dvd rentals when we bought the blue ray play last week
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: I buy DVDs used from amazon
Merlyn: I buy used amaznos
Merlyn: zons*
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: LOL
Dexter Fong: amazning Merlyn
live cat soap: i bet the amazons aren's happy about that at all
Dexter Fong: You'd never know to look at them though
live cat soap: there is a Manet paiting of a woman on a horse called The Amazon
Merlyn: not the "used" part, at least
live cat soap: in an article in this week's New York Review of Books
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: I get confused between manet and monet
Dexter Fong: You buy them for the parts, merlyn?
live cat soap: am i the only person here who reads that mag?
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: magritte is my favorite french painter
Dexter Fong: Cat: Likely
Merlyn: parts is parts
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: is ny review of books a costly periodical?
live cat soap: thats like me being the nly person here who knows firesign theatre albums
H. Stones: surely some mistake
live cat soap: its not a cheap subsciption, but it's probably in your local library, tween
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: I've heard every firesign album except box of danger and I've probably heard most of that
Dexter Fong: Then again how many people on the NYR of Books chatroom would know firesign
live cat soap: the conecept of every is a slippery slope
live cat soap: quite a few, i ssuspect, dex
Dexter Fong: Yeah probably, but not the poets
live cat soap: i would like to write an article for that mag about the firesigns
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: np: sibelius
Dexter Fong: What about him llan?
H. Stones: I liked the Swan of Tuonella
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: what about him? like I said, he's np
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: no pulse
Dexter Fong: Thought there were laws about such things
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: actually he's my favorite composer. I'm listening to Tapiola right now. Exquisite
Dexter Fong: np=not present? =no problem?
H. Stones: and I enjoyed Night Ride and Sunrise
Merlyn: mmmmm…..tapioca….
live cat soap: i gather no one else watches breaking bad
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: I've never seen breaking bad
live cat soap: i wonder what honey would think of it. it's set in albuqurque
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: what is? tapiola?
live cat soap: when she mentinoes living there, it provides a visual input for thatr place for me
H. Stones: is it one of the Lionsgate Productions they make down there ?
||||||||| Outside, the 9:53 PM uptown bus from Billville pulls away, leaving doctecazoid coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Dexter Fong: Albuqurque has some of the best tapioca in the country
doctecazoid: koff koff...
live cat soap: wow. the doc. hey mr health,
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: Hi doc
doctecazoid: yeah - that's me, mr. health... hah

BBQ'dTweeny: May the surgery go smoothly, and may you be ridden of the foul invaders
doctecazoid: thanks tween & all for the good wishes

doctecazoid: the week is flying by - i'm losing track of thyme
live cat soap: sage is a good substitute
doctecazoid: i thought yesterday was thursday
live cat soap: i look forward to going to restaurants with you and lili again in some happy future
doctecazoid: the whole world is spinning
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
doctecazoid: cat: not much would make me happier
doctecazoid: sage advice, that
live cat soap: Fumiyo is supposed to go to Hungary next month and I'm drooling over menus for next Vegas trip
doctecazoid: she's going to hungary or she's going to be hungry?
doctecazoid is easily confused
live cat soap: she's rarely hungry, but her hungarian frined has invited her
Dexter Fong: Hungry in Hungary or Eastern europe on one Euro a day
doctecazoid: a euro a day keeps the russkies away?
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: One euro a day! LOL
BBQ'dTweeny: Can a romanian be hungary?
Dexter Fong: No Doc, it attracts them, like mars fleas on a ruskie sable
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: I've had hungarian food. I'm not impressed.
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: balkan food is the blandest there is
Dexter Fong: Goulash!!!
H. Stones: Just talking with Honey and the answer is yes, she does like Breaking Bad
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: english food is rather bland but somehow it tastes good
H. Stones: i couldnt talk long she is in a Greek restaurant
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: the hungarians use a lot of paprika which is such a mild spice that you have to use a lot
Dexter Fong: I like Greek Food
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: greek is pretty good
H. Stones: Most British food nowadays is actually foreign
Dexter Fong: llan: Paprika is only as mild as the pepper it's made from
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: my favorite greek food is galactaboureco
doctecazoid: lili and i are fans of breaking bad - quite a hair raising series
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: it's a kind of custard pastry made with phyllo or however you spell it
Dexter Fong: llan: I was thinkg bout that but couldn't for the life o me figure how to spell it =))
live cat soap: there is a lot of good greek food. the lemon soup for example. the spinache pies
Dexter Fong: Many lamb dishes
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: well, the greeks spell it differently, dex
Dexter Fong: They have a good way with fish and seafood also
live cat soap: the calimari, the grilled whatever, but my fave local food is eggplant stuffed with crab
Dexter Fong: Dugeness?
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: lemon soup? never heard of it
live cat soap: greek salad
Dexter Fong: Avgolemeno on the Greek menu, llan
live cat soap: rice in chicken broth with lemon. exquisite. greek staple
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 10:10 PM and Bunnyboy sashays out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
Dexter Fong: Hey Bunny
H. Stones: Hi Bunny
Merlyn: hey bb
Bunnyboy: Hi, gang.
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: I first tried greek food at a little place called the Acropol in Rome, NY

Dexter Fong: A long time, llan =)
Bunnyboy: It's been a rough week. Our 8 3/4 Tricolor Cavalier, Henry, succumbed to a nasty bacterial infection, on Tuesday.
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: if you had succumbed, that means you're dead, bb
Bunnyboy: 8 3/4 years, that is.
doctecazoid: listening to 'dick nixon chevrolet' dear friends today - i never knew there was actually a "dial-a-joke" service - i never knew that the conception corporation bit was actually a parody
Bunnyboy: Yup, Henry's dead.
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: oh, now I get it. I thought you meant YOU had a viral infection
Dexter Fong: Ah, a deceased pet...yes, it's always sadder than you'd think
live cat soap: sorry to hear that, bun
live cat soap: ive had many, many deceased pets, yet am still not deceased, for some reason
Dexter Fong: Expecially when they're still youngish
doctecazoid: so sorry bb - our thoughts and prayers go out to you
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: sorry to hear it, bb
Bunnyboy: The vets think he got spider-bit, or bee-stung, or scratched in some way. He didn't display symptoms until last Thursday, and then...he couldn't outrun it.
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: I've never owned a pet
Bunnyboy: No one owns a pet.
live cat soap: ive rarely not owned a pet. nor can i imagine not doing so
Dexter Fong: Relationship anxietes?
doctecazoid: yeah, our cats own us for sure
Bunnyboy: He was a great dog, was Mr. Henry. We called him The Hambone.
live cat soap: i had a spider bite in barcelona. thankfuly found a doc to treat it in cordoba before it killed me
H. Stones: i just regularly feed the birds in my garden, they mostly look after themselves
Dexter Fong: Tough love, very BRITISH Stones
Bunnyboy: It's just been so shocking. We finally rationalized it by saying to ourselves: "It's like he got hit by a car."
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: I got bit by a crab a few days ago
H. Stones: they give a lot of pleasure, Dexter, it would be a sad world without our songbirds
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: on the ankle. they have them at our beach
live cat soap: speakng of brits, i'm re-reading Island now. its extreme britishniss is quite alien to me
llanwyddorsomeonelikehim: who wrote Island?
Bunnyboy: cat, to finally answer your question: I *love* BREAKING BAD.
H. Stones: i dont know it, whats it about ?
doctecazoid: gang i am fading fast - gotta pack it in, one more grueling workday left - sorry for your loss bb - keep 'em flyin'
Dexter Fong: Stones: We've had Mourning Doves nesting on our fire escape the last two years...On bunch of eggs last year and two separate sets this
Merlyn: cya doc
||||||||| At 10:19 PM, doctecazoid runs out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
live cat soap: sleep as well as you can, doc
||||||||| 10:19 PM: doctecazoid jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past half hour!"
doctecazoid: nytol (zzzzzzzzzzzzzSHNXXXXzzzzzzzzzzzzz......
Merlyn: all that jumping wears you out
live cat soap: i hope they stop mouring eventually
Dexter Fong: Doc came out of the closet to say gnight
Bunnyboy: nite doc!
H. Stones: being a green, i got a lot of trees planted in this area so now the birds have moved back in
||||||||| "Hey doctecazoid!" ... doctecazoid turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 10:19 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...
H. Stones: nighty night Doc
Dexter Fong: afk fr
||||||||| Catherwood sneaks into the room, and pipes up "Announcing 'Elayne', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 10:20 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the sitting room...
Bunnyboy: Anybody else a BREAKING BAD fan?
Elayne: Back, but just briefly.
Bunnyboy: lo El!
