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 08, 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 08, 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?"
||||||||| Outside, the 9:00 PM crosstown bus from New York pulls away, leaving Dexter Fong coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
||||||||| 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 NickTween_NoAye disembarks at 9:00 PM.
NickTween_NoAye: Hey Dex

||||||||| Catherwood ushers Merlyn in through the front door at 9:12 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
Dexter Fong: Hi Merlyn

Merlyn: pretty good in MN, snow is finally trying but it's no use
Dexter Fong: Like Richard Burton or Leonard Cohen
NickTween_NoAye: Yeah, generally been a mild winter all-round, thrank Grid
||||||||| Outside, the 9:18 PM uptown bus from Billville pulls away, leaving Principalpoop coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Merlyn: not good for farming though, not enough moisture
NickTween_NoAye: Leonard Cohen has a unique vocal style
NickTween_NoAye: Hey P

Merlyn: seems ok to me
Principalpoop: pretty good, not bad, I can't complain
NickTween_NoAye: P, you can set the refresh time in the Configuration here
NickTween_NoAye: It defaults to 10 seconds
Principalpoop: alright alright, just sat here watching the chat not move after I asked, which is why I asked
Dexter Fong: Mine is set for 2 miliseconds
Principalpoop: mine is 5
NickTween_NoAye: That's faster than any chat's been gone before!
Dexter Fong: youbet
cease: no, i don't
Principalpoop: in ubetistan the odds are better
Merlyn: no, 2 and 5 seconds
Merlyn: not milliseconds
Dexter Fong: Joke? =))
Merlyn: but sometimes if you click away from the window the chat is in, the autorefresh stops working
Principalpoop: lower than 5 it seemed to flicker, especially if nobody had written anything in the mean time
cease: always a good idea here, dex
Merlyn: so you have to click, or do a manual refresh to fix it
Principalpoop: what if I don't want to click? don't feel like clicking?
Principalpoop: then what?
Dexter Fong: Then youu'e out of the clique
NickTween_NoAye: Click Click, Player

Principalpoop: ok, mister peabody
Merlyn: Sure, man
Dexter Fong: I was gonna try that versian out, Merle, but I chickened out =)
cease: sounds like old twilight zone episode
Principalpoop: it did not look right, i was too lazy to try another version of spelling it
NickTween_NoAye: and on the subject - if you'd like to hear some great music from the Texas Hill Country, check out my latest Roadkill Show at www.kurtericson.com/txroadkill/roadkillshow
NickTween_NoAye: A fine Jerry Jeff Walker album called "Hill Country Rain"

NickTween_NoAye: Yeah, she's something :) and I feel very lucky that she's still with us. Much to say about all the years
Dexter Fong: A friend on mine. his mother is in the same state..constantly has to be reminded of who he is
NickTween_NoAye: She actually saw what programs like the CCC, WPA, NRA did, and swears it was the right thing to do
Dexter Fong: Tween: Listen to your mother, bubie
NickTween_NoAye: That her mind is still so clear is a true gift
Dexter Fong: Indeed
NickTween_NoAye: The last time she had an eye test for the driver's license, the clerk told her that her eyesight was better than hers ll
NickTween_NoAye: It's hard to explain to her that the Great Depression was brought about by government intervention, and that it's always been a power grab by the banking cartels
NickTween_NoAye: Since 1913
Dexter Fong: I *just knew* you were'nt gonna be able to resist propogandizing us
Dexter Fong: ...and I took specific care not to pick sides between you and your mother, too

NickTween_NoAye: I try to keep my mind open, P
cease: go invent the stick
Dexter Fong: I keep mine closed so the voices can't be heard
NickTween_NoAye: In 2007, I would have told you that I was a FDR Democrat. That was before I knew how history had been 'revised'
Dexter Fong: What did I say?
Principalpoop: who said what?
Principalpoop: no, he's the picture
cease: i'm going in search of sangria
Dexter Fong: Were you abducted and *probed* Tween?
NickTween_NoAye: Yes, when I was taught 'history' in school ;)
Dexter Fong: Sangria, isn't that one of the 7 lost cities of gold?
NickTween_NoAye: Lincoln had absolutely no interest in the equality of the races

Dexter Fong: Frau Blucher? Is that you?

Principalpoop: which one starts with them in barrels on a ship?
Dexter Fong: Treasure Island?
NickTween_NoAye: Night At The Opera
NickTween_NoAye: With Kitty Carlisle
Principalpoop: ok, that is my favorite
Dexter Fong: Same thing
Principalpoop: i need to see it again
Merlyn: monkey business starts with them in barrels, not Opera
NickTween_NoAye: "You can't fool me. There ain't no sanity clause.."
Principalpoop: monkey business then
Merlyn: Opera starts at dinner with Dumont and Groucho behind her
Dexter Fong: Behind her what?
NickTween_NoAye: Dumont was wonderful
cease: havent seen recently enough to recall
Merlyn: Behind her Margaret
NickTween_NoAye: and from what they say, put up with much from the 'brothers'
Principalpoop: the women in my family are built like her, and kate smith
Merlyn: Groucho always said she was the best straight man for them
NickTween_NoAye: "Oh doctor! My metabolism!"
NickTween_NoAye: Yeah, exactly Merl
cease: imagine if that's the only thing groucho ever said. we would get bored of him quickly
Dexter Fong: She was something, she never reacted to the gags, just kept on plwing thru her script
Merlyn: Groucho's name in Races was supposed to be Quackenbush, but there were a few Dr. Quackenbushes that were ready to sue
NickTween_NoAye: While the world went crazy around her, for sure
Principalpoop: keep moving, or they might tear you down and put up a parking lot
NickTween_NoAye: Hackenbush
Merlyn: yep, they had to change it
Principalpoop: i didn't know that, cool
Merlyn: groucho and chico had a radio series, Flywheel, Shyster, and Flywheel
Dexter Fong: What did they change it to, I thought his character was called Quackenbush?
NickTween_NoAye: Well, it worked out OK, because there are veiled references to female circumcision :/
Merlyn: Hackenbush
Principalpoop: hack hack hackenbush
Merlyn: turned into a mime clue for Harpo, though
Dexter Fong: Ah....you are right Merlyn...dunno why i thought it was Quackenbush
Merlyn: and Races was the first pantomime conversation between harpo and chico
Principalpoop: i never get ahh confused
NickTween_NoAye: Like FST, the deeper you dig, the more you find in WC and Marx movies
Principalpoop: i thought it was sword fish, as a password, harpo put a sword in a fishs mouth
Merlyn: lots of places misquote his character as Quackenbush still, dex
Merlyn: that wasn't a big long bit between harpo and chico, PP
Dexter Fong: Yeah, but I've seen that movie many times
Principalpoop: ok
Merlyn: it seems like something that would have been thought up earlier (the pantomime scene)
cease: i havent watched a marx flick in a long time
Merlyn: I remember when Animal Crackers was finally released from copyright mess hell
Dexter Fong: TCM features them with some frequency
Principalpoop: oh, you mean like harpo did with lucy?
Merlyn: went through regular theaters even
Merlyn: no PP, I mean harpo trying to get a message to chico thru pantomime
Dexter Fong: Poop: I think M means a "charades" type thing where Harpo acts out what he wants to impart
Principalpoop: charades then
Merlyn: yeah, charades
Principalpoop: i do not intend to be dense, it just happens, sometimes hehe
Dexter Fong: I think in order for it to be termed pantomime, you have to have a horse
Merlyn: when lucy did the mirror gag with harpo, would that be like doing it with oprah?
Dexter Fong: Poop: May I have the next dense?
Principalpoop: oprah did that with somebody?
cease: thats no pantomime. that's a pantoyours
Dexter Fong: Yes, Merlyn, Oprah and Stedman
Merlyn: we fired our pantomime horse ages ago. We just broke its leg, really.

NickTween_NoAye: Palin said his favorite character was the pantomime horse driving the Jaguar
Dexter Fong: Merle, Aspen is *so* trendy, everyone has a pantomime horse
NickTween_NoAye: It's fun. You shoud see it if you haven't
NickTween_NoAye: Austin's getting that way :/
cease: a real pantomonium
NickTween_NoAye: Playground for rich folk :(
Merlyn: at least you have oxygen
Merlyn: my wife and I went to the aspen comedy festival one year,
cease: and survived?
Principalpoop: i don't beleive in flying saucers
Merlyn: barely
Merlyn: then we got dressed
Dexter Fong throws a cup at Poop and says, how about a flying cup?
Principalpoop: why a cup? why a duck?
Principalpoop: i ducked
Merlyn: I pooped
Dexter Fong retrieves his cup and puts it back where it belongs
NickTween_NoAye thoo eggs, have justly landed on my palate
