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 March 01, 2012 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, March 01, 2012 - 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?"
||||||||| cease enters at 9:00 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and dashes off to the Hat Pack Annex.
cease: greetings, multitudes
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies Merlyn into the room, accepts three dimes as a gratuity, mumbles something about 9:08 PM, then departs.
Merlyn: hey platitudes
cease: new character enter
Merlyn: "¬"
cease: you see austin's post on facebook a few minutes ago?
Merlyn: no, I'll check it out
Merlyn: the part on FRED?
cease: the quadrocopter
Merlyn: oh yeah, saw that on reddit
cease: i suggested it was a good way for the firesigns to make their next album
cease: beats the I Ching, out the window
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood intones: "9:18 PM and late as usual, it's Dexter Fong, just back from New York."
Dexter Fong: Hello Dear Friends
Merlyn: hey dex
cease: the dex man cometh
Merlyn: hey cat, new ISP? You are not near vancouver via Nino

Dexter Fong: Your signal is strong grasshopper
Merlyn: well, maybe some IP addresses changed hands and geobytes isn't updated yet
cease: must be the strong grass
Dexter Fong: No doubt
Dexter Fong: The stron, honest, sturdy grass of our forefathers
Dexter Fong: Undiluted by federal nannies
cease: you mean our forefathers took drugs?
Dexter Fong: Mine did, cat, don't know about yours
Dexter Fong: And if I did, I'd never tell
Merlyn: My forefathers were rich; they sold drugs
Dexter Fong: Statistics show that 98% of drug dealers are also users

Dexter Fong: It's the haunted space station

Dexter Fong: I've heard it!
||||||||| "9:26 PM? 9:26 PM!!" says Catherwood, "BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny enters and sits in front of the fireplace.
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: Hey folks

BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: So, what's the latest? What's the scoop?
||||||||| Catherwood ushers H Stones inside, makes a note of the time (9:27 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Dexter Fong shows Tweeny his port authority
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: Hola Stones
Dexter Fong: Hi there Sir Stones
H Stones: Hola etc
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny thinks Dex's badge has the wrong number
cease: hi stones
cease: chatters continue to trickle in
Dexter Fong quickly dials up a new set of numbers and tases tweeny
Merlyn: hey stones
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: Ouch! You crazy droid!!
H Stones: sorry i have been somewhat irregular but my broadband provider collapsed on the first week in November and it only got repaired last week, which is i think you will agree a bit of a bummer
Dexter Fong: I'm not crazy, it's this electromagnetic field
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: A modern man w/o his internet. Horrible, I tell you, horrible!
Dexter Fong: Stones: Some kind of cottage industry broadband thingie?
Merlyn: not such a tough old broad band, eh?
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: Sally's Electromagnetic Field?
Dexter Fong: Most of those old broad bands arose in the 1940s when all the guys were drafted
H Stones: thank you for the sympathy Tweenster, as a result i missed my online Xmas, Birthday and New Year and in the end only i could fix it
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: Budweiser, I do believe
H Stones: i didnt try that one Tweeny
Dexter Fong: and another day older, bud
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: I thought the UK had really good (if well-snooped) internet service
Dexter Fong: It's thoe druids
Merlyn: snooped by scooby-do?
Dexter Fong: They run everything thru stonehange
Dexter Fong: henge
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: They didn;t have the correct address of the Stones?
H Stones: I got an email from British Telecom right at the beginning of November telling me they would carry out improvement work and of course the next day it was so improved, it no longer worked a all
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: 'improvement' hehe
Merlyn: so improved, you can't even tell it's there
Dexter Fong: Got a similar thing here Stones, you see a restaurant, dark with a sign reading closed for renovations....it's gone
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: or over here now
H Stones: after the usual two week on the phone to the call centre in Mumbai, i lost patience and simply called up the Chief exec, cut out the middle management often gets things moving.

BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: I'll keep my Libertarian sales pitches for other chats ;)

BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: So, whazzup with da boyz?
Dexter Fong: Rick Santumonius thanks you
cease: 70 something men get to be called boys?
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: Santorum should be put in a Sanitarium
Dexter Fong: Better than 70 boys being called men
H Stones: he came over here beginning of last week and told us we should scrap the Health Service
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: I think they're putting a far-right religious nut in there just to scare people into voting for Romney
Dexter Fong: Stones: Sssanctorem is an unbelievable asshole but he's in no danger of being elected
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: There have been some great political cartoons about Santorium peeking into people's bedrooms
H Stones: it only just worked
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: The health care system?
cease: you think romney has a better chance?
H Stones: yes but only because of Sanctimonious
Dexter Fong: Remeber boys/men, you heard it here first....Obama gets re-elected big time
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: Unless Paul pulls a dark horse finish, it seems to me that Romney will be their guy
H Stones: i hope your right, hes the best of a sad bunch
H Stones: Paul is far to sane to get the job
Dexter Fong: Stones: Why are you concerned about who the republicans run, the worse, the better
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: Thanks you for that, Stones
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: Just what my 94 year old Mother (who has seen it all since the days of FDR) said about Paul
Dexter Fong: Federalische Deautches Republik?
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: She's still a FDR Dem, but respects that Paul is at least making coherent arguments
H Stones: i must try and cut down on watching the Big Bang Theory
Dexter Fong: Dig it bro, once you've seen how it all started, ....
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: With that Big Turtle?

Dexter Fong: Sure, He was born in kenya
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: I don't think Jeb will join the fray

Dexter Fong: Cat: Don't forget on a trip from Mass or where ever to Toronto, he put his dog in a cage and strapped it to the roof of the car

BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: The NYT comics series is very good

Dexter Fong: E: Is kitty sick?
Elayne: No Dex, just out of his mind.
Dexter Fong: Or in heat - I believe that's the proper veteranary term?
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: Have you subscribed to "Where's The Funny" on Facebook, E?
Elayne: He's decided he suddenly needs to drink from the faucet in the tub, 24/7. When he doesn't get it what he wants all the time, he lets us know, loudly.

Blue Honey: Gee El, it could be that your kitty might have diabetes that is one of the symptoms.... thats how I learned I had diabetes....i just couldnt stop drinking from the faucet in the tub.
Elayne: Ooh, thanks Brian, that will do nicely!
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: What's that one Proc puts in his newsletter?

BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: *(which was great)
BatteriesNotIncludedTweeny: a competing wine company that made a real ad that parodied Gallo
Dexter Fong: Ah

Dexter Fong: These type of narrowly focused collections are interesting in what they say about those who origianlly collected
Dexter Fong: Cat: Did you enjoy the Woody flic?
cease: i loved the cinematography of paris and the folks in the 20s were fun, but the title character was a walking black hole
Dexter Fong: I thought it had that particular touch of his, where you start watching and are very quickly immersed in the picture
cease: i dont know when i've loathed an actor more
cease: i was never immersed. far too pissed at the "actor"
Dexter Fong: There were times in that film, for me, when that character spoke his lines, it was as if Woody himnself were speaking
cease: yes, more than a few times. if allen had said them, it might have worked
Dexter Fong: But he's too old Cat =)
cease: true
cease: that's what his step daughter should have said
Dexter Fong: Like Coccoon meets Teenagers Gone Wild
