||||||||| 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 October 13, 2011 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...

||||||||| Catherwood escorts Son of Firesign in through the front door at 5:27 AM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
Son of Firesign: Get into this Doppler, Catherwood, click this address. http://radar.weather.gov/radar.php?rid=FSD&product=NCR&overlay=11101111&loop=yes

||||||||| Around 5:29 AM, Son of Firesign walks off into the sunset...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, October 13, 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?"

Rotonoto: fuuuun eee!
llanwydd: tween might be gone quite a while
Rotonoto: he's weirdly cool
TheHuntForRedOctweener: You rang?
llanwydd: I was just thinking 2001 is a rather long film
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Just busy with some other stuff, including watching 2001again (haven't seen it in ages)
llanwydd: like I was saying before, though, its one of my very favorites and by coincidence I watched it last night
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Also looking for a new apartment. Austin is a pretty hot market
llanwydd: on the sundance channel
TheHuntForRedOctweener: kewl LL
doctecazoid: so it would seem
TheHuntForRedOctweener: You've seen 2010?
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Good sequel
llanwydd: what's wrong with your present abode, tween
llanwydd: or adobe, whatever the case may be
TheHuntForRedOctweener: $$
llanwydd: yes I've seen 2010 as well
TheHuntForRedOctweener: I am not optimistic about the future of the economy
doctecazoid: 2010 more pedestrian than 2001 - but i think it still works pretty well nonetheless
Rotonoto: few are, tween
cease: more of a sequel than necessary
TheHuntForRedOctweener: but Pinc P will get Obama to borrow more moneyfrom China and then we'll all be fine and dandy again
TheHuntForRedOctweener ducks
cease: maybe arthur c clarke needed a new telescope in sri lanka or something
doctecazoid: peter hyams is no stanley kubrick - but the story line of the sequel kind of demanded a more straightforward approach, so no harm no foul
llanwydd: no, tween. the economy looks pretty bad
TheHuntForRedOctweener: I like it
llanwydd: which reminds me of that hilarious email you sent me. The economy is so bad...
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Thought Scheider and Mirren were a good pairing
llanwydd: kubrick is not one of my favorite directors but 2001 is a masterpiece
TheHuntForRedOctweener: The pairing of the space station and The Blue Danube Waltz was genius
doctecazoid: i love kubrick and 2001 is definitely a masterpiece
Rotonoto: I'm definitely staying away from Europa
doctecazoid: open the pod bay doors please hal
TheHuntForRedOctweener: and since I know what sort of chat I'm in, I will not be ashamed to say that I saw 2001 first run in DC on LSD
llanwydd: Europa?
Rotonoto: sorry, Dave...
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Yes, no vacationing on Europa
doctecazoid: hfro: wow that must have been quite an experience
llanwydd: what was the experience like, tween?
Rotonoto: (moon of Jupiter)
TheHuntForRedOctweener: "All these worlds are yours, except Europa. Attempt no landing there..."
TheHuntForRedOctweener: It was a very good movie
doctecazoid: all i had was hash brownies - though that worked out pretty well
llanwydd: ah, yes. europa
Rotonoto: Gawd will spank thee...
Merlyn: eh, the book was better, Hyams screwed it up
llanwydd: I'd give my left arm and my right leg to see 2001 in cinerama
llanwydd: well...
llanwydd: maybe not
doctecazoid: was it hyams or studio meddling?
llanwydd: I've haven't tripped since I was very young, though
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Me either, LL
Rotonoto: I first saw 2001 in a drivein, with most horrible speaker EVER! It was *still* good!
llanwydd: hash brownies sounds cool
Merlyn: well, he didn't keep the artificial ship gravity via rotation straight
TheHuntForRedOctweener: I'll bet, Roto :)
Rotonoto: you want hash brownies with that?
llanwydd: did they have a cinerama screen at the drive-in, roto? probably not
Merlyn: and the chinese who went to europa were cut from the story, but I don't know if that was him or the studio
Dexter Fong: I'll have another Ground Zero
Rotonoto: nah, just a regular drivein screen and really lousy speakers
TheHuntForRedOctweener: I pretty much gave al that up when I moved to Indiana circa 1980. A somewhat different environment ;)
doctecazoid: and now you can watch cinerama movies on your mobile phone! not the real thing nor an incredible stimulation.
TheHuntForRedOctweener: lol Doc
Rotonoto: hmmm- a chastening experience? makes Tx look good, maybe?
llanwydd: cinerama on a mobile phone? I am incredulous
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Yeah, they're going to start strapping iDevices (if not implanting them) to newborns soon
cease: that could work. for an ant
doctecazoid: you gotta hold the phone REAL CLOSE to your face...
Rotonoto: orcer cinnamon buns from your mobile phone?
Merlyn: you could watch that "this is cinerama" trailer on an actual roller coaster now
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Austin is quite a bit different from the rest of Texas
doctecazoid: iNplant
TheHuntForRedOctweener: The San Francisco of Texas, some have dubbed it
llanwydd: where is that, merl?
cease: i hear good things about it, tween
llanwydd: I spent some time in san antonio. I thought that was unique
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Bloomington, IN (where Bubba lives, and what happened to him?), is also not like the rest of Indiana
llanwydd: I know there is a theatre subculture in austin
Merlyn: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/This_Is_Cinerama llan
doctecazoid: ah, bloomington
TheHuntForRedOctweener: I haven't spent much time in San Antonio. I hear the Riverwalk is very cool
llanwydd: thanks, Merl
cease: in texas, it would all have to be a sub culture
cease: saw flick recently called, i think, the Essense of Life, which i think had one of the chatters in it
Rotonoto: power dropped, no UPS = reboot aaarghhh!
llanwydd: yeah, I walked along the river walk. it was very pleasant
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Dallas is the largets publisher of 'Christian' materials in the world. Lots of bible-thumpers in Texas
TheHuntForRedOctweener: *largest
cease: according to this flick, it also had the largest gay churches in the states
Rotonoto: I bet Austin is fairly cool
TheHuntForRedOctweener: In fact, the Constitution of Texas says that in order to hold public office you have to believe in a Supreme Being (thankfully they do not define it ;)
llanwydd: Cool, Cat. do you know which chatter?
Merlyn: Here's a simulation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lII5rXbxcCs
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Yeah, lots of high tech in Austin. It's also been called Silicon Hill Country
cease: as i recall his name here was edmund edmund, doc knows
||||||||| It's 10:25 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:

Merlyn: you can see the join
TheHuntForRedOctweener: The University of Texas has a big influence. Very different culture around the university
doctecazoid: danny geduld
llanwydd: Jesus: The Lost 40 Days was shown on H2 recently. I was in that.
Rotonoto: author from TX writes- he will make us miss GWB
Rotonoto: yep, yep- which is why a univ ID is not enough to vote in Tx now
TheHuntForRedOctweener: It's still the Capital of Texas and all, but parts of it are very nicely funky
cease: universities always are
llanwydd: a college town?
doctecazoid: edmund geduld used to be tonto to lodestone's richard fish - he's moved on to other things apparently
llanwydd: those are usually funky
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Perry hasn't got a prayer (pun intended) of being President
Rotonoto: (title: "Adios Mofo"- I kid you not)
doctecazoid: get down with your bad self
cease: id'd in the flick as being a sound guy, so it must have been him
Rotonoto: Perry to asuage the right while they take airsick meds over Romney
TheHuntForRedOctweener: But he would make Shrub look good ;)
llanwydd: last night I dreamt I met obama. interesting dream
cease: i tried to ask him about the flick on facebook but he didnt get back to me
cease: lucky he didnt dream he met you
TheHuntForRedOctweener: It's quite a mess, Roto
llanwydd: LOL, cat

Rotonoto: just the HPV vaccine mandate was a frickin' outrage
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Benoit David isn't Anderson, but he does a great job
Rotonoto: just that alone- but wait- there's more- much more
doctecazoid: gotta drop off, sorry, major software deployment (day job shit) happening this weekend, have to be in extra early tomorrow morning for testing'
llanwydd: I saw benoit live. he was alright but as you say, he is no anderson
doctecazoid: i'll see you all here next week - hopefully
Rotonoto: good thing you still have a job, DF
Dexter Fong: That's not only Perry's hair, it's also a Shamwow
llanwydd: I've got to get that album. is it good, tween?
llanwydd: Nite, Doc
doctecazoid: ttfn ttyl nytol (zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz........
Dexter Fong: Night Doc
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Yeah, between making 12 year old girls take shots, and his "Niggerhead Ranch", and supporting tuition discounts for illegal aliens? He's going nowhere
Merlyn: cya doc
Rotonoto: take care, and Lil, too
||||||||| doctecazoid is defenestrated just as the clock strikes 10:30 PM.
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Romney is likely going to be pushed down our throats
cease: by doc
llanwydd: niggerhead ranch? what is this?
Rotonoto: you didn't hear?
Rotonoto: not watching enough liberal cable channels
llanwydd: I guess I don't really want to know. I haven't been following the campaigns
TheHuntForRedOctweener: I like it, LL. It sounds like Union in a lot of places, but it's got some merit
cease: he has about as much chance as Rick Parry
Rotonoto: latest Perry scandal, superseded HPV vaccine mandate scandal
TheHuntForRedOctweener: You didn;t hear about that, LL?
llanwydd: I saw Yes in Orlando back in March. they played right in the middle of a downtown street
cease: amzing people didnt say No
Rotonoto: Perry and frineds hunt at leased ranch formerly called "Niggerhead"
TheHuntForRedOctweener: http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runninscared/2011/10/rick_perry_niggerhead.php
Rotonoto: you can fool the people, cat- sadly...
llanwydd: well it was the first free Yes concert I ever went to
cease: llan, i'm not sure if i saw them or not
Rotonoto: latest scandal in CA- gov. signs another vaccine 'seni-mandate'...
Rotonoto: giving 12 year old kids the right to decide if the get peer pressured into allowing the HPV vaccine, NO consult with parents
llanwydd: scandals don't interest me. nobody is perfect.
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Yeah, the vaccine mandates are widely controversial
Rotonoto: scandals should interest you...
llanwydd: well, that is just plain, wrong, Roto
Rotonoto: hen it's the state forcing you and your kids to be guinea pigs for evil big pharma...
llanwydd: I mean about the 12 year old kids
Rotonoto: who, BTW, have total immunity from congress if their untested vaccines harm you or your kids!
Rotonoto: 12 year olds are in no way equipped to maske rational adult decisions like whether to accept vacination with an untested drug...
Rotonoto: a drug with known, severe, negative side effects...
Rotonoto: up to and including death...
Dexter Fong: If they offer it for free out in the playground.....
llanwydd: yeah, roto. what you describe is fascist at best. as for scandals though I mean ordinary indiscretions
llanwydd: but this thing about the vaccines is inexcusable
Rotonoto: ahhh, right. I thought 'ordinary' scandals didn't count any more
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Well of course, in Rick Perry's case, his ties to big pharma giant Merk are in question
TheHuntForRedOctweener: *Merck
Rotonoto: no question- the ties are strong and he profited from them far more than he admits on the record
Rotonoto: that's apparently well-documented
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Absolutely, Roto
Rotonoto: OK, I'll shut up now...
TheHuntForRedOctweener: yep
TheHuntForRedOctweener: lol
llanwydd: but I've been looking at the way people think of scandals and it seems that americans care more about them than europeans
Rotonoto: gets me hot under the collar, basic liberty questions here
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Well, if we can't talk politics _here_.... ;)
llanwydd: for example the french don't seem to care if their politicians or public figures are involved in scandals
cease: he broke the president!
Rotonoto: true dat, I just was leaning into it a bit hard
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Roto, are you familiar with the website www.lewrockwell.com? You might find the articles of interest
Rotonoto: OMG president already broken
TheHuntForRedOctweener: The President got broke long ago :/ On a street in Dallas :(
TheHuntForRedOctweener: I'm not sure we've had a real one since
Merlyn: see you next week people, gotta go
llanwydd: Nite Merl
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Thanks Merlyn
Rotonoto: yep, yep, know the site fairly well.sad thing is, I'll vote for the incumbent- way lesser of two evils- but he's a company man...
cease: by merl
Rotonoto: not much frined ot me and you
||||||||| 10:42 PM -- Merlyn left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
Dexter Fong: Night Merl
Rotonoto: nite merl
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Shrub and Obama are ultimately beholden to the same masters
llanwydd: I never vote for a candidate. I vote against them
Rotonoto: yes, but questions of degree become important in that case
TheHuntForRedOctweener: It's Replocrats. That's why I like the Libertarian movement, even if I don;t agree with everything
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Sad thing to say, LL
llanwydd: if I belonged to a political party I'd be a libertarian
TheHuntForRedOctweener: I can vote _for_ Ron Paul :)
Rotonoto: I used to espouse libertarian sentiments, but eventually realized their world view leads to...
Dexter Fong: Nithing?
llanwydd: leads to?
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Ayn Ran's bedroom?
Rotonoto: emi-anarchy and an even stronger, more entrenched plutocracy/corporatocracy- ush!
llanwydd: yes...yes...?
Rotonoto: heh!
Rotonoto: with whips?
TheHuntForRedOctweener: *Rand
llanwydd: Ayn Rand McNally?
Rotonoto: Ayn Rand Paul
Rotonoto: heh!
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Yeah, some people in the movement are truly anarchists
cease: lots of rands to go around
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Why I like Dr. Paul's attitude - a 'Libertarian Constitutionalist'
Dexter Fong: The only good rand is a Kruger Rand
Rotonoto: I actually like Ron Paul, but a lot of his stuff just won't work
llanwydd: well, I believe in self-government
llanwydd: and who doesn't?
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Not bad, Dex
Dexter Fong: llan: Behave yourself
cease: i discovered that i have one. will pay for a week in vegas
TheHuntForRedOctweener: That was rather the point at the beginning, LL
Rotonoto: self abuse? down the hall, 4A
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Government doesn't dictate, it does what we authorize it to do
Dexter Fong: eh?
TheHuntForRedOctweener: lol Roto
TheHuntForRedOctweener: But, I though you wanted an argument
Rotonoto: you going to gamble on the food, Cat? Heh!
llanwydd: who is we, tween?
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Roto, what has Ron Paul suggested that 'won't work'?
TheHuntForRedOctweener: You and me LL
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Read the Constitution
llanwydd: as far as I can tell, all governments are oligarchies
Rotonoto: I wanted an argument, but she wouldn't have me-said she can't shout, don't hear me!
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Which is what they were trying very hard to avoid
cease: true, llan
llanwydd: even dictatorships
Dexter Fong: Tween: Are authorized to make such a statement
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Why the 10th Amendment movement (State's Rights) is growing
Rotonoto: he's way out in right filed on reforming 'medicine' from what it is today...
Rotonoto: dis you see the pain and hesitation in his eyes during debate?...
cease: power tends to be concentrated
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Yes, I am the official spokesperson for the Libertarian party and the Constitution of the United States
llanwydd: right, Cat
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Wanna see my secret decoder ring?
Principalpoop: back, I was eating
Dexter Fong: and why so many don't have any power, they can't concentrate
Rotonoto: while audience members cheered for death of destitute sick people, he looked genuinely conflicted...
Principalpoop: the consititution said blacks were 3/5ths or what? and so that is how profound and wonderful the constitution is
Rotonoto: he has dilemma of being sworn to Hypocratic oath- do not harm- and libertarian oath- "caveat emptor" "Fend for yourselves"
Principalpoop: just a piece a paper, don't go insane
llanwydd: exactly, princ
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Rotonoto: dis you see the pain and hesitation in his eyes during debate? - he's a caged debating animal wanting to be set free, Roto
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Ron Paul would smoke them if given 1/2 a chance, and they know it
Principalpoop: slavery was legal for libertarians, i would rather be a progressive
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Principalpoop: the consititution said blacks were 3/5ths or what? - was that the Southerners, P?
Rotonoto: yes I see that part too, but sadly, some of his stuff is either extreme or not workable- or both...
Rotonoto: even though he is a very good man and honest and respects the Constitution
TheHuntForRedOctweener: and BTW, read the 13th and 14th Amendments, P :-)
Principalpoop: the constitution itself, counted blacks as partial gd people,
llanwydd: I didn't know there was a libertarian party during the era of slavery
TheHuntForRedOctweener: That's what the Amendment process was made for, to fix things
Principalpoop: we changed the ink on a piece of paper, it is not holy or sacred
Dexter Fong: Never trust a guy with two first names
TheHuntForRedOctweener: It was the North which insisted on 3/5's, P
Principalpoop: liberty of the states to avoid federal interference in internal matters
TheHuntForRedOctweener: remember, the number of Representatives is allotted by _population_
Principalpoop: who are you defending? where was liberty for blacks and women and foreigners?
Rotonoto: you went over our heads, Dex- now I get the quip
Principalpoop: liberty for humans, come on, be progressive
llanwydd: two first names. lol
Dexter Fong: ergo: liberty of the city town or municipality to avoid federal interference in internal matters
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Again, P, I refere you to all the Amendments to the original document
Principalpoop: libertarians want the freedom to be bigots
TheHuntForRedOctweener: It was amazing that those people agreed on anything at all
llanwydd: I can't agree with you, Princ. I have examined the libertarian party very thoroughly
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Is there a way to change your nick through Merlyn's HTML commands?
Rotonoto: there are both good and problematic sides to Libertarianism
Dexter Fong: suma ergo: liberty of the individual to avoid federal, state, city, town, or municipality interference in internal matters
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Yes, P. You don't have to like Austinites.
TheHuntForRedOctweener: We're talking law, not personal preferance
llanwydd: well, as I say, I am not a member of the party. I am very politically unmotivated
Principalpoop: using the theory of states rights to continue the practice of slavery was despitable
TheHuntForRedOctweener: You want Mao's 'regrooving camps' so everybody will think the same as you?
Principalpoop: we have twitter and tv to do that
Rotonoto: it's always a delicate balance, states rights vs. heavy handed federalism
TheHuntForRedOctweener: I would have stopped buying their cotton. But then again, I shop at Walmart. And you are assuming that there were no Northern slaves. You would be mistaken. The Emancipation Proclamation only freed the slaves in the break-away States, not up North
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Rotonoto: I see very eggregious abuses at all 3 levels, state, local, federal
Principalpoop: we vote for our federal senators and congressmen, how much power do you need?
Dexter Fong: Tweeny: About nick changing, I dunno, prolly only Meryn would know
Dexter Fong: Or you ccould exit and rejoin
Rotonoto: but probably federal is worst...however...
Principalpoop: don't be poor losers
Rotonoto: state level abuses catching up FAST!
llanwydd: well, folks. got to be going. see you all next week.
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Thanks Dex
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Have a great week, LL
cease: by llan
Rotonoto: every one of us is a loser in present gridlock, and all will lose in 2012 regardless of who is elected
Rotonoto: bye Llan
Principalpoop: things will get better
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Senators used to be elected by State Legislatures. Much has changed
||||||||| llanwydd says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, llanwydd exits at 11:01 PM.
cease: nature of things, ancient cbc science show, just starting new season right now.
Principalpoop: all the paul reveres and chicken littles, getting tired of them
Dexter Fong: Night llan
cease: show on nano-technology.
cease: this is very interesting
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Well P, what would you do if you were High Muckey-Muck?
Principalpoop: nano-nano, a world designed by robin williams
TheHuntForRedOctweener: as robin Williams might say, nano nano...
TheHuntForRedOctweener: beat me to it :)
Dexter Fong: nuh uhhh
Rotonoto: yeah, beat you by nano seconds
cease: welcome to nano city, name of show
Dexter Fong: Welcome to nano city, careful where you tste.....ooops
Principalpoop: need to something about things being too big to fail, and that requires heavy handed government
TheHuntForRedOctweener: nano chicken littles?
Rotonoto: hey guize, truly fun to be back, see you all again...
TheHuntForRedOctweener: chicken nano - sounds like a new taco bell offering
TheHuntForRedOctweener: You and yours be well, Roto
Rotonoto: and the spirited political debate is good, actually- always different sides to issues
cease: i hope we see you again sooner, roto
Principalpoop: lean hard roto
Dexter Fong: Be well, Roto
Principalpoop: i would not argue with you if I did not respect you or find you not rational
cease: i'm off to watch tv and eat pizzza. by
||||||||| At 11:05 PM, cease vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
Rotonoto: thanks- sorry I didn't really have time to say enough 'hi you' to everyone personally...
TheHuntForRedOctweener: Take care, cease
Principalpoop: night all
Dexter Fong: eat pizza by the yard?
||||||||| Around 11:05 PM, Principalpoop walks off into the sunset...
Rotonoto: things move fast in theis chat
Rotonoto: nite poopster
TheHuntForRedOctweener: We going to take SpeedyChat Room?
Dexter Fong: See you all er you few, next week
TheHuntForRedOctweener: later gators - until last time, again...
||||||||| TheHuntForRedOctweener scurries out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's TheHuntForRedOctweener?! It's 11:06 PM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
Rotonoto: OK guise, was nice to be back, will try again next week...
Rotonoto: I really missed you guys, bye Dex...
||||||||| Rotonoto departs at 11:07 PM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
||||||||| It's 11:25 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Dexter Fong - dead from dengue fever
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| 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."
