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 September 15, 2011 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood leads Son of Firesign inside, makes a note of the time (7:23 AM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Son of Firesign: Time to face facts, Catherwood, we have a sneaking seeking the phrase "Whisky for my men, beer for my horses" has roots in both outer sapce and the old west. Click here to watch the definitive "Beer.." video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Hx3md1CbT4&feature=youtu.be
||||||||| Catherwood says "It's 7:26 AM"
||||||||| At 7:26 AM, Son of Firesign vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
||||||||| Dexter Fong enters at 8:52 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and hurries off to the Hat Pack Annex.
Dexter Fong: Just getting here a little early to reserve a seat next to Catherwood.
||||||||| Catherwood walks over to Dexter Fong and inquires "Someone mention my name?"
Dexter Fong: Be back shorty
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'cease', just granted probation at 8:59 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, September 15, 2011 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"

cease: and a chef from saskatchewan, where i'm from, but try to hide that fact
cease: not really a food kind of place
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Principalpoop close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 9:14 PM tree-stunting plans, and rushes off to the anteroom.
Principalpoop: what?
cease: hey poop
Principalpoop: just the three old farts
Principalpoop: where is everybody?

||||||||| Catherwood leads Elayne in through the front door at 9:20 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
Elayne: Woo-hoo, it's autumn! Evenin' all!
Dexter Fong: Hey Elayne
Principalpoop: hi E
cease: hey el

Elayne: I went into work this morning in thick humidity, temps in the 70's, and when I came out of the building at 7 PM it was chilly! Oh man, I live for this season.

Elayne: Aren't too many days one can say one has actually experienced an entire season change during the day.
Principalpoop: same in roanoke, 80 today, 40s tonight
Principalpoop: my sinuses are talking to me, I have become a barometer
Dexter Fong: I've become an altimeter
Principalpoop: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-DuC0tE7V4 almost funny

Dexter Fong: drugs don' do nothing for me

Principalpoop: We take drugs seriously in my family

Dexter Fong: E: Probably, like the trees, the sap or "blood" is withdrawing to the central or trunk part of your body
Principalpoop: getting ready to hibernate?
Elayne: Hey, Dex, it's a theory.
Elayne: It's not a good theory, but it's a theory. :)
cease: i had no idea i could eat something in vancouver that would taste as good as anything i could eat in new york.
Dexter Fong: Let's test it, in spring well tap your syrup and have a boil off party

||||||||| Gusts of wind blow in from outside and the thumpa-thumpa-thumpa of helicopter blades is heard as Happy Panditt's chopper lands on the lawn and llawnddry falls out at 9:38 PM.

cease: how the fuck should i know?
Bunnyboy: There was a season, about 6 or 7 years in, where they had 1 or 2 eps that featured senseless violence, inflicted on innocent, non-anthropomorphic cartoon animals. What a turnoff!
