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 January 12, 2012 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| 8:17 PM: Woody 1 jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past hour!"
Woody 1: Hey, you all. I got a book published. Should be out in February, early March. Futuristic Mystery Thriller. Bee back soon.
Woody 1: I'll keep the page open but may not be here for a bit. Looking forward to chatting.
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, January 12, 2012 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
||||||||| "9:01 PM? 9:01 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Thweeny should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Thweeny enters and sits on the couch.
Thweeny: Hi Woody
||||||||| Catherwood ushers cease inside, makes a note of the time (9:02 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Thweeny: Allo, cease
cease: hi tween, woody the author
Thweeny: I hear it's cold up your way
cease: not too bad but it's supposed to snow this weekend
||||||||| Dexter Fong tiptoes in around 9:04 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last week's "unpleasant incident."
Dexter Fong: Evening all
cease: hi dex
Dexter Fong: Hi cat and tweeny
Thweeny: Hey Dex
||||||||| It's 9:10 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Woody 1 - dead from the common cold
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies Merlyn in through the front door at 9:10 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
Merlyn: Hey, I finally remembered
Dexter Fong: Hey Merlyn
cease: hi merl
Merlyn: I keep forgetting to pick up my cues
Merlyn: hi awl
Merlyn: that was a rather pointed remark
Dexter Fong: Don' point your cue at me, Daddyo,
Dexter Fong: I'll chalk you up
Merlyn: I'll mind my P's and cues
Dexter Fong: I'll tend my rams and ewes
Merlyn: Later when more people show up I'll promote a game that Phil Austin likes that's finally out
cease: firesign game?
Merlyn: nope, a visual novel
||||||||| Principalpoop steps in at 9:16 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
Dexter Fong: Hey poop
cease: firesigns are so prolific these days
Principalpoop: are those your cues?
Merlyn: what knockers!
cease: hi poop
Principalpoop: I am plowboy, son of ahh, whatshisname
cease: speaking of knockers, Fumiyo was in a car accident this morning
cease: another woman ran into her car
Principalpoop: not good news, hope she is ok
Principalpoop: and then that the car is ok
cease: she's in much better shape than the car. have to take it in tomorrow morning
Merlyn: not bad I hope
cease: such things are always scary
Dexter Fong: and then that the other woman has insurance
cease: driver's side door can't open now. have to get from the passenger side
Merlyn: Proctor got this from a friend of his about the Siri voice answer thingy for the iPhone:
Principalpoop: fender bender? door scratcher? panel pusher?
Merlyn: Q: "Siri, why does the porridge-bird lay its eggs in the air?"
Merlyn: A: "Nice try, but you're not going to get me to shut down that easily."
Merlyn: Q: "Siri, this is Worker speaking."
Merlyn: A: "Hello, ah-Clem, what function can I perform for you?"
Principalpoop: wow wow wow
cease: yes, when Fumiyo called ICBC (the provincial car insurance), the other woman had already reported in
cease: sounds like the siri programmer knows firesign
Principalpoop: those are installed, or you have to put in a firesign app thingie whatever?
Principalpoop: glad she is ok, not fun cat
cease: just read the new planet proctor a few minutes ago. that sounds like something hed mentino there
cease: she had a friend with a new baby in the car so it could have been much worse
Merlyn: He just sent email about it earlier today cat, probably not enough time
Principalpoop: oh my
Merlyn: and from what I can tell, that's how it comes, no add-ons needed (it has a fair number of joke answers for things)
||||||||| llanwydd enters at 9:22 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and scurries off to the Chapeau Manger.
llanwydd: howdy
Dexter Fong: Hey llan
cease: hi llan
Merlyn: baby in a car seat I hope?
cease: of course
Principalpoop: the influence of firesign is incorrigible, unescapable, rampant
Principalpoop: mister llan, welcome

Thweeny: Hey LL, P
Merlyn: Everything You Know Is Wrong, E I E I O
Principalpoop: trouble with your tongue tween?
Dexter Fong: you mean his thongue?
Principalpoop: sounded like his thong, didn't want to go there

Principalpoop: ross perot came in second in new hampshire, oops I mean ron paul

cease: i'd vote for a parot
Merlyn: If I ran, I'd change my name to Rosper O.
Dexter Fong: Make mine a mynah
Merlyn: Just for the name recognition
Principalpoop: isn't a perot a kind of chabernet?
llanwydd: I think romney is our next president
Dexter Fong: He won't beat Obama
Principalpoop: he is a mormon for christs sake
llanwydd: I don't know
Principalpoop: an investement banker mormon white male, I guess you cant get more american than that...
llanwydd: I haven't voted republican since 1980 but I'm not all that happy with obama
llanwydd: although I voted for him of course
Merlyn: I'm not crazy about Obama, but the republicans are crazy, period
Principalpoop: i just don't want to encourage the republicans....
Dexter Fong: llan: You think you'll be happy with the republicans?
cease: isnt that what bernie sanders said?
llanwydd: what's the difference. we've had nothing but puppet leaders during my lifetime
Dexter Fong: The great tight end for the Cleveland Browns?
Dexter Fong: Jim Henson for President
llanwydd: some of them have been dangerous but they have all been puppets
Dexter Fong: You mean puppets of the s........?
Principalpoop: wotsop with mitt saying he did not see the commercials and then describing them, are we idiots?
Thweeny: Did you see that Ralph Nader has endorsed Ron Paul?
Dexter Fong: Poop: No, he is
Principalpoop: WTF, how can that guy get any support?
llanwydd: I like ron paul. even as a republican
Thweeny: He could wasily attract Liberals and Progressives because of his anti-war stance.
Dexter Fong: I said it before and I say it again, never trust a man with two first names
Thweeny: *easily
Principalpoop: but then again, some folks like palin too, no accouting for taste
llanwydd: but better as a libertarian
cease: ive heard talk of him running as a 3rd party
Thweeny: no weasels involved
Thweeny: I think he'd rather win the nomination, cease
llanwydd: he has run as a third party
Thweeny: But a 3rd party is always a possibility
Thweeny: Yes, he ran as a Libertarian in '88
Principalpoop: the same doom message as ross perot and we saw ross perot was wrong...
cease: no giant sucking sound?
Principalpoop: bunch of chicken littles
Thweeny: >Dexter Fong: I said it before and I say it again, never trust a man with two first names< lol
cease: he could do sound effects for the firesigns
llanwydd: wasn't ross perot the lead character in The Tempest
llanwydd: I've played ross perot on stage
Dexter Fong: lol llan
Thweeny: >Principalpoop: the same doom message as ross perot and we saw ross perot was wrong...< Ross Perot was wrong about NAFTA??? lol
Principalpoop: you are thinking of taming of the shrew
Merlyn: the tempest in the tea party
llanwydd: lol
Dexter Fong: Michelle O'Bachman, the temptress in the tea party
Thweeny: P hasn't noticed the "giant sucking sound of jobs leaving the country" of which Perot spoke
Merlyn: the turn of the shrew
Principalpoop: the economy was going strong, until the wars and sub-prime thing,
Dexter Fong: Tween: That's cause they ship em out in sound proof containers
Thweeny: The Shrewtape Letters?
Thweeny: Ah Dex, so that's it ;)
Principalpoop: now we hear the same drumbeat about deficiet and the fed and stuff...
Principalpoop: phooey
Thweeny: >Principalpoop: the economy was going strong, until the wars and sub-prime thing, < No tech bubble, eh P?
Dexter Fong: Beat out that message on a drum
Principalpoop: that was government policy fault?
Dexter Fong: put it in a bottle
Principalpoop: companies have chased cheap labor since forever...
cease: robots will always be in demand
Dexter Fong: Malnutrition makes cheap labor easy to catch
Thweeny: >Principalpoop: that was government policy fault?> Yep. Clinton started the business with providing incentives to ship jobs over seas. People only bought into it because of all the hoopla about our great new 'information society'. We'd be the brains, they'd be the brawn. It was all a hype
Principalpoop: do you buy american llan and tween, or just the cheapest you can find? action louder than words..
llanwydd: ...he said are you lookin for somethin easy to catch...said I got no money...
cease: a chapter in michael moore's autobi about that
Thweeny: >Principalpoop: companies have chased cheap labor since forever...< That didn;t mean that Clinton had to give them tax incentives (which still exist) to offshore jobs
llanwydd: pardon me. dex reminded me of a song
Thweeny: Buy American what, P?
Principalpoop: that made things cheaper for americans to buy
cease: he somehow got into a conference in mexico by pretending to be a factory owner in flint
cease: highly reccommend the book, Here Comes Trouble
llanwydd: I buy what I need. that's practical
Principalpoop: oh, you want big government tariffs and stuff, those walls work good
llanwydd: I can't afford to be picky
Dexter Fong: They're still making flint?
Thweeny: I bought some toilet bowl cleaners at Walmart the other day. They were made in America
Principalpoop: mexicans?
Dexter Fong: By Mexicans
Thweeny: >Principalpoop: oh, you want big government tariffs and stuff, those walls work good< No, I want fair trade w/o tax incentives to offshore jobs
Thweeny: lol Dex, probably ;)
Dexter Fong: Chicano! It cleans that big porcelain bowl
Principalpoop: my nanotube frying pan is super, I want a toilet made out of that stuff lol
cease: what are all these mexicans doing here?
Dexter Fong: The Aztec two-step
llanwydd: everybody's got to be someplace
Thweeny: The steel toed work boots I bought at Wallyworld the other day were made in China. If there were American made alternatives, I didn't see them. What store do you shop at which sells American-made goods?
Dexter Fong: Mister Cecils of London
llanwydd: is there a mister cecil's or did you make that up
Dexter Fong: Made it up
Principalpoop: Mister or Master
Dexter Fong: thankyahvurrymuch
llanwydd: I shop at Dollar General
Dexter Fong: Myster
llanwydd: they don't sell goods, they sell bads.
Principalpoop: some of the dollar general stuff is junk, some is a good deal
Dexter Fong: They sell you the idea of buying
llanwydd: I always wonder when I buy stuff at a dollar store if its counterfeit
llanwydd: especially medicine and vitamins and stuff like that
Thweeny: Mr. Mister?
Dexter Fong: Who can afford to conterfeit dollars
Principalpoop: listerine and some other brand names announce they don't make 'store brands'...
llanwydd: I know I've bought phony stuff in a dollar store
llanwydd: labeled falsely, I mean
Merlyn: use phony dollars
Dexter Fong: Wow! I've been buying my Flomax there...no wonder I'm up about a dozen times a night
llanwydd: one time it was extra virgin olive oil. no pun intended but I know extra virgin
Dexter Fong: had to start sleeping in the bathtub
Principalpoop: some generics are well not
Merlyn: I never have any extra virgins around
Merlyn: I'm always short
Dexter Fong: That's prolly why they leave, Merl
Principalpoop: my coffee is the triple the price of when I moved to virginia in 1997, quiet inflation
Merlyn: They're heightists?
Dexter Fong: Heighty ho
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and intones "Presenting 'Elayne', just granted probation at 9:52 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
Elayne: Evenin' all! Sorry, just got home from work.
Dexter Fong: Hi Elayne
Principalpoop: like george burns said, at my age, it like trying to push an oyster into a parking meter
cease: hi el

Principalpoop: oops Hi E, sorry about that
llanwydd: feeling better this week?
Merlyn: Hello E
Elayne: THat's okay, PrinPoop, I'm only half paying attention. Having trouble focusing my eyes afer 10.5 hours of staring at screens.
Elayne: Llan, I'm fine physically except for this temporary blurriness and other signs of being bone tired.
Dexter Fong: It's winter, Elayne, take the screens down
Principalpoop: look at the horizion for a few seconds, if you can see it, helps
Merlyn: Hey E, do you still have a "web thingy of the week" or something?
llanwydd: glad you're feeling better

Principalpoop: keep warm, rest, lots of fluids
Principalpoop: i hate colds and flu, i don't play around anymore with them

Dexter Fong: I remeber them
Dexter Fong: We called em 8 pagers
llanwydd: my grandpa used to read me the "golden books"
llanwydd: were they only 8 pages? sure has been a long time
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Merlyn: their website is slow from all the traffic
Elayne: Brian, it's not really loading
llanwydd: hey catherwood, what time is it?
||||||||| Catherwood says "It's 10:00 PM, exactly!"
Dexter Fong: The ones we knew about were. You could buy them at the burlescue show

Principalpoop: as I said, a blast from the past
llanwydd: hey catherwood, what time is it in guam?

Merlyn: Might be a while until their website recovers, E. If you want to know about the game, you can check http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo
Dexter Fong: Hey, Catherwood, read my horoscope
||||||||| Catherwood reads Dexter Fong's horoscope.
Dexter Fong: Out loud, please Catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood strides over to Dexter Fong and mumbles "Something I can help with?"
Elayne: Uh, it's an online comic book?
Dexter Fong: Visual novel
Elayne: You're right, I don't get how that qualifies as a Silly Site. But thank you for the link, it's very nice of you to think of me.

Elayne: I like the line about everyone being damaged. I've felt very damaged lately.
Merlyn: you want disney to sue us, dex? Mickey would own my computer
Elayne: I have no interest in cartoon sex. Heck, I'm post-menopausal, I have limited interest in NON-cartoon sex. :)
Dexter Fong: We've got the pictures, Merlyn, no worries, mate
Dexter Fong: We've got pictures of walt Disney and Al Capp and Tess Truehart
Merlyn: It's actually done well and part of the plot, E, you're missing out
Merlyn: one of those is a fictional character, dex
Dexter Fong: No, Merlyn, I've hear Al Capp on the radio
Principalpoop: it looks addictive, hill street blues with anime japanese school girls.. hehe
Merlyn: well, his leg is fictional anyway

Elayne: Need to go, too much to do. Dex, you can call me @ work on Monday if you feel like talking & making plans for another lunch...
Elayne: Later, all.
||||||||| Elayne dashes out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's Elayne?! It's 10:16 PM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
