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 June 07, 2012 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| RedPillTweeny waltzes in at 12:41 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
||||||||| It's 12:55 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| RedPillTweeny - dead from the yaws
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies Dave & Katie in through the front door at 5:21 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
Dave & Katie : greeting folks. I haven't been here for a long, long time. But I thought I would say hello (insert woof here) and try to come back later. Things are going well here, still working on a masters degree.
Dave & Katie : just had a chance to read last week's log, good to see a corps of people still around.
Dave & Katie : off for now but I hope things are well with all the just folks, and the unjust.
||||||||| Around 5:51 PM, Dave & Katie walks off into the sunset...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, June 07, 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?"
||||||||| Merlyn sashays in at 9:02 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
Merlyn: Missed Dave & Katie
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 9:03 PM, dragging Principalpoop by the hair and asks "Can anyone vouch for this idiot?"
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood intones: "9:04 PM and late as usual, it's Dexter Fong, just back from New York."
Merlyn: hey pp

Principalpoop: hehe
Merlyn: where facists sits . . . Putin on the Ritz
Principalpoop: i tried the new ritz with cheese and ritz with peanut butter, better home made, why?
Principalpoop: should be the same, they must be using cheap cheap cheese and peanut butter
Merlyn: not as ritzy
Merlyn: it probably just dries out more
Principalpoop: i think you are right
Merlyn: but cheap too
Principalpoop: but those nutty buddy peanut butter cookies taste good
Principalpoop: and are moist
Principalpoop: the name is near that anyway lol
Dexter Fong: moisture is good
Merlyn: should tell the ritz people
Principalpoop: or add jelly,
Dexter Fong: They might just send you a case
Merlyn: "Honey, I got a case of the Ritz"
Dexter Fong: "You sure do, Sweetie
Principalpoop: i am a true blue american. I like the club house cookies with a can of kraft cheese hehe
Merlyn: "Honey, I Shrunk the Ritz"
Principalpoop: i know it is not cheese but I cannot help myself
Merlyn: into those new tiny ones
Dexter Fong: Ritzlettes
Principalpoop: the tiny gummy sweet tarts are not bad
Merlyn: the tiny ones aren't as good, the smaller size cooks a bit different
Merlyn: of the ritz crackers
Principalpoop: yes
Merlyn: they overcook a bit, sorta
Principalpoop: same with the snickers, changes the proportions..
Principalpoop: tiny twix tasted the same
Merlyn: why would candy bars taste different?
Dexter Fong: Snickerettes with extra nicotine
Merlyn: oh proportions
Merlyn: most of the ones I like taste about the same, but I don't like candy bars with nuts, which probably don't scale as well
Dexter Fong: Don't worry we don't weigh 'em
Principalpoop: almond joy was always tiny pieces, kinda sorta
Principalpoop: 2 little bites instead of one big bar
Merlyn: I supposed segmenting them works well
Principalpoop: one of my family yearly christmas pictures shows me with a giant jaw breaker in my mouth
Principalpoop: it was like eating a billiard ball hehe
Merlyn: they should have "CHOKING HAZARD" all over them
Principalpoop: they still have the hot jaw breakers? i loved those for a while
Principalpoop: nevermind, i might as well chew a cup of sugar
Dexter Fong: I always liked the Whitman Sampler. Open it before others get to it, move em all around, people consult the diagram, think they're getting chocolate mint and it's the one with larks vomit....what a laugh
Principalpoop: we need cat here to raise our level of food discussion

Bunnyboy: I realized this week that Dr. Doom is the Lucy Van Pelt of the Marvel Universe.

Principalpoop: ahh dave brubeck explained, take 5 was a journey caused by drugs...

||||||||| Catherwood accompanies Woody 1 inside, makes a note of the time (11:26 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Principalpoop: hi woody
Dexter Fong: Hiya Woody
Woody 1: I'm brand new.
c: the beats were getting loaded all the time in the 40s
Principalpoop: you still have that new chatter smell, nice
c: your brand is new?
c: i'm old
Woody 1: I did it with the news anchor.
Principalpoop: dan rather?
Principalpoop: ewwwww
Dexter Fong: Cat: Yes, but I'm a little young for that
Dexter Fong: And the disconnect accelerates
c: aha
Dexter Fong: oho
c: the idea of a young dex
Principalpoop: who was older than that now?
Dexter Fong: Yes, I admit...I've had work
Dexter Fong: brb
Dave & Katie : I was so much older then I'm younger than that now.
c: you seem much younger than me, inspite of my much smaller collection of callendars
Principalpoop: speaking of work done reminding fong what he need to do hehe
c: you know the keith jarrett version of that song, dave?
Principalpoop: right who sang that?
c: one of the best pieces of music i've ever heard. jarret's somewhere before album
Woody 1: Sounds like a Neil Young song.
Principalpoop: ok, sure could be
Dave & Katie : no cat, jarrett's singing while playing drives me nuts, I can't listen to him.
Principalpoop: ever heard and like tangerine dream dave?
c: he doesn't sing on this one, dave. just check out the song, my back pages. if it's not online somewhere i can probably send it to you
c: i once heard keith emerson's version with The Nice, but only once
c: it kinda foreshadowed the jarrett
Principalpoop: well you have heard the name and can give them a taste someday maybe
Woody 1: ELP--saw rhem twice--very nice.
Woody 1: t
Dave & Katie : pp liked some of tangareen's stuff, lots of it put out though and haven't had tim,e to listen to it, just got a lot of klause scholtze though
c: oh, what a lucky man, he was
Principalpoop: oh, what a lucky man he was, a perfect song to play at high volume, repeatedly late at night
c: most thrilling use of synthesizer i'd heard up until that time
Principalpoop: oki, yes some is too much for me, same with klause, but real music in there....
Dave & Katie : yeah cat will look up jarrett's back pages. would love to listen to jarrett's improvisations but he sounds like a wounded dog half the time and it's just annoying.
c: along with bab o'reillly
Woody 1: Saw John Paul Jones open for for King Crimson. It was great.
Woody 1: I'm repeating myself.
c: i was really into jarrett in the 70s. saw him a bunch of times. once in la was in a tiny club with my cousin and his piano was a couple of feet away from us. his sweat kept sweeping into our drinks
Dave & Katie : cat that's disgusting. but after a few I suppose it didn't matter. I love king crimson's first record, we did an analysis of that record in my prog rock class, that was fun.
Principalpoop: i only saw that once woody, but ok
Principalpoop: said the straight man, to the late man
c: i was a fan of jarrett when he was with charles lloyd, particularly Forest Flower.
c: some great licks with Miles too, on Live Evil.
c: the cologne concerts and bremen/lausanne were the music i listened most to about the time i met fumiyo, 1975
Dexter Fong: I find the Jarrett Standards Trio to be extraordinary
H. Stones: ok fellas, getting late over here now so i better go, see you all on the ice
Principalpoop: I bet that was fun, tell us more, anything surprise you about prog rock?
Woody 1: Saw Warren Zevon do his solo Learning to Flinch tour. So awesome. My friend retrieved his water bottle. Probably his last hoorrah.

H. Stones: Taos NM at the last census

Dexter Fong: Honey has been censored? Those bastards!!
Woody 1: Love Zevon.
Principalpoop: totally cat
Principalpoop: and his hair was perfect
Woody 1: Ha.
||||||||| "11:43 PM? I'm late!" exclaims H. Stones, who then runs out through the french doors and down through the bushes.
Dave & Katie : actually it was an avante gard rock and jazz course. it was a lot of fun, I wrote my final paper on Marc Bolan's early acoustic records which I LOVE
Principalpoop: don't go pedantic on us....college boy
c: by stones
c: it makes sense to study musical genres
Woody 1: Voted the greatest opening lines of a rock song--Werewolves.

Principalpoop: I knew him, but did not know his name, cool dave
Principalpoop: bye M
Principalpoop: what the difference between a genre and an ouvre?
Dexter Fong: He's got the Prague right here...He knows Paul Revere...
Dexter Fong: Poop: You can ouvre le port, but you cannot genre le port

Principalpoop: exactly my point
c: jazz is a genre. miles davis's collected works are an ouvre
Woody 1: Can you repeat an entendre?
Dexter Fong: Well said cat
Dexter Fong: entendre
Principalpoop: be careful about putting all your ouvres in one genre hehe
Dexter Fong: entendre
Principalpoop: i double your endrendre and give you an innuendo
Principalpoop: rats entendre
Dexter Fong: I am Genre, queen of the Desert. Ride my camel!

||||||||| "11:57 PM? I'm late!" exclaims Principalpoop, who then dashes out through the french doors and down through the flowerbeds.
c: by poop. keep on pooping
Woody 1: Places in the Woods, Greg J. Grotius rosedogbookstore.com
Dave & Katie : what's it all about? it's about this long
Dexter Fong: There was only one test, after the 3rd level classes. Q1. Talk about New Orleans: what was the cultural aspect, it's location, who founded it, what was the earliest recorded jazz etc
Woody 1: wwww.rosedogbookstore.com
Dexter Fong: Sorry Dave. and others, too was trying to msg
c: sorry the page you were looking for could not be found
Dave & Katie : I could answer that question in part. did he consider the earliest recorded jazz to be the odjb or another source?
Woody 1: you can see the synopsis by searching. Hold.
||||||||| Catherwood walks in wearing his pyjamas, yawns, and mumbles "It's midnight here in New York city"...then he falls over and starts snoring loudly..
Dexter Fong: Dave: ODJB is considered to be the first recorded jazz, not to say there wasn't jazz before it...just not recorded
Dave & Katie : eh the dex is outa the bag now. I
c: grampa's got a brand new bag
Dexter Fong: I gotta sleeping bag and you youngsters are keepin' me awake
Dave & Katie : dex, I will email phil and ask if he can send me a past test, just to see how well I know the answers on it. worst he can do is say is "no" right? "no right" or "no wrong"
Woody 1: http://rosedogbooks-store.stores.yahoo.net/nsearch.html?section=&query=Places+in+the+Woods&searchsubmit=Search&vwcatalog=rosedogbooks-store
Dave & Katie : papa gave that bag up when the airline charged him 50 dollars to check it
Dexter Fong: Dave: There were three listening tests on it...he played 15 selections and you had to say, loius or not louis
c: sounds good, woody
Dave & Katie : I think I could do that, dex.
Dexter Fong: You might DAVE, I was scuffling there
Woody 1: Thanks, Dex.
Dave & Katie : I mean, are we talking differences between mils and louis or is it more like berrigan and louis or eldridge and louis type comparrisons.
Dexter Fong: Dave: Think you could distinguish Louis from Red Allen, or Tommy Ladnier, or King Oliver?
Woody 1: I mean c.
Dexter Fong: All New Orleans style trumpet/cornet players
Woody 1: http://rosedogbooks-store.stores.yahoo.net/nsearch.html?section=&query=Places+in+the+Woods&searchsubmit=Search&vwcatalog=rosedogbooks-store
Dave & Katie : god I can't type, type god. no, I mean are we talking different new orleans style sounds or are we talking a bop vs. new orleans style trumpet. it's all in the harmonies, tone color, metric uses, louis was famous for his accents on different offbeats.
Dave & Katie : ah ok, that would be harder but I think with enough practice and knowing what exactly to listen to I could do it. I like a challenge. now if only this mirror would stop showing me this ugly face.
c: is this your first sf novel, woody?
Dexter Fong: Dave: It was fifteen tracks of rather brief trumpet/cornet solos, all of which would be considred New Orleans or perhaps, early chicago style
c: i like the genre. read a lot of sf when i used to read fiction
Dexter Fong: Dave: I said it was a hard test. I'm somewhat familiar with loius with Oliver, the Hot Five and Hot seven, but Louis was all over the plase in those early years
Dave & Katie : oh wow. well, just memorize the things i just mentioned and maybe even the sound of recording and acoustic or electric, think about it, oliver recorded w/ louis in acoustic, louis's hot 5 stuff was started in 25 so it's electric. but that would be a challenge.
Dexter Fong: Cat: YOu heard Ray Bradbury died?
Dave & Katie : dex check your private msgs please, shhh, everyone, he's seeing his privates
c: indeed firesign publisher ohmart mentioned it on facebook, andi told him thre wuld never have been How Time Flies without bradbury
Dave & Katie : clarinet players are easier than trumpeters because you have a reed that you can mould differently, at least, that's my thought.
Dave & Katie : somewhere I have the dimention x episodes of the martian chronicles and the like. what a writer though.
Woody 1: Yes.
Dexter Fong: Dave: Send me an email and we'll figure out a good time for it, and I'll give you my phone number
Woody 1: Please check it out if you get the chance. Thanks.
Dexter Fong: Well guys, I have a car to relocate so...see you next week, same latitude, same attitude
c: ok, wood
c: ok dex. have fun with your car
Dexter Fong: vroom! vroom! vroom!
Dave & Katie : dex sent you email msg. I'm out as well, layter all, hugs. and love. and peace, and plastic! and...soup.
||||||||| At 12:16 AM, Dave & Katie runs out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
c: off we flee
Woody 1: Night night, Fireheads.
Woody 1: I'm fading.
