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 August 16, 2012 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and announces "Announcing 'RedPillTweeny', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 2:33 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
||||||||| It's 2:55 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| RedPillTweeny - dead from the common cold
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Dexter Fong sashays in at 8:55 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
||||||||| "8:58 PM? 8:58 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Merlyn should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Merlyn enters and sits on the divan.
Merlyn: Hey dex
||||||||| Catherwood enters with cs close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 8:59 PM tree-stunting plans, and scurries off to the anteroom.
Dexter Fong: Hi Merlyn
Dexter Fong: Hey Cat
cs: hi gang
Dexter Fong: A gang of two, now three
Merlyn: hey cat
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, August 16, 2012 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
cs: one more and we can be a gang of 4
Merlyn: Have a good silly site for E if she shows up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPcapo5ZB_o
cs: i think she'll like that
cs: i wonder if the original gang of 4 is still alive
cs: i think mao's wife died
cs: you got the news i relayed from taylor last week's chat, merl?
Merlyn: all 4 dead
Merlyn: no cat, what's up
cs: they were old 30 years ago
cs: but the rock group Gang of 4 is still around
cs: i saw them in amsterdam in 1980
cs: i asked taylor when the bergman memorials would be released as download and he said they would be part of a large package of firesign stuff to be released
cs: that'll put some money in lily's college fund!
Merlyn: sounds good cat
cs: do you know if she's getting 1/4 of the firesign income from their sales?
cs: i would imagine so
Merlyn: pretty sure, yeah
cs: juding from their facebook posts, ossman and proc sound busy
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in at 9:07 PM, dragging MisterTweenJeans by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this yo-yo?"
cs: ossman was hustling jobs for orson the other day, now that he's graduated
cs: hi tween
MisterTweenJeans: Good evening...
MisterTweenJeans: Saw Ossman's announcement on Facebook
MisterTweenJeans: Sure wish him the best
cs: he sure did a good job as Orson
cs: Welles in my play Red Shift
MisterTweenJeans: Didn't know that
MisterTweenJeans: kewl :)
cs: sounds like he's looking for a career in the movies or tv
cs: hope he has better luck than the 4 or 5 with that
MisterTweenJeans: Me too
Merlyn: well, most do worse
MisterTweenJeans: Was fun to see Proc in the Silly Patté commercial in Amazon Women
cs: bergman sure started out well in the acting biz in europe
cs: proc has had the most successful career as an actor
cs: is that something new, tween?
||||||||| Principalpoop sashays in at 9:13 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
MisterTweenJeans: Amazon Women On The Moon? 1980's
Dexter Fong: Hey Poop
Principalpoop: eveneinging
cs: hi poop
MisterTweenJeans: Bunch of very funny skits
MisterTweenJeans: Hey P
cs: im not famliiar with it
cs: i think proc has been in hundreds of movies and tv shows
Merlyn: I've seen it, pretty good
Principalpoop: in the groove tube genre as I recall
cs: when i first visited his house in 95, he had a large wall full of vhs tapes of stuff he'd been in. lots and lots more since then
Principalpoop: i figured him to be a beta man hehe
cs: maybe they were beta tapes, i didnt look closely
Dexter Fong: It's hard to be a Beta man in a VHS world
cs: i think proc more as an alpha
Principalpoop: i don't even know what the new thing is
cs: dvd?
Principalpoop: what won? blu-ray or dvd?
Dexter Fong: They'e kinda comporable, most new Video players accomodate both
Merlyn: You can call me blu-ray. Or you can call me blu-jay. Or you can call me blu-johnny. Or you can call me blu-sonny
cs: i think there's an even newer format
Principalpoop: or is everything just in the cloud and no portable media?
cs: we waited till last year to get a blue ray player and its probably obsolete now
Dexter Fong: Merlyn: Can I call you blu-who?
Merlyn: sure
Dexter Fong: Thanks
Principalpoop: who are you? toot toot toot toot, tell me who the fuck are youuuuu?
Dexter Fong: I'll keep it in reserve, for now
Principalpoop: i woke up in a soho doorway, a policeman knew my name
Dexter Fong: Remembering the good old days Poop?
cs: i wish my blue jays had a better team. probalby finish last this year
Principalpoop: ahh youth
cs: lost many of their best players to injury
Dexter Fong: The breaks of the game
cs: literally
Dexter Fong: First an ankle, then an arm, then etc,,
Principalpoop: finishing last is good for draft picks right?
cs: but it never stops the yankess. they just go out and buy top of the line replacements
Dexter Fong: Theoretically
cs: did you read or see money ball?
Dexter Fong: Yankees are willing to spend money,,,many owners just won't spend
Principalpoop: i recall george allen traded away all the draft picks for the next 10 years, did not like rookies
Dexter Fong: Yes, Poop...GEORGE WAS KINDA CRAZY
cs: why own a baseball team and not spend on players? makes no sense
Dexter Fong: I agree, Cat but some owners are just in it for the money..don't understand that if you regularly field a competitive team, fans will come out
Principalpoop: it is a matter of principle, the owners were reeling in the revenues but would not share until a strike cut off the flow...
Dexter Fong: Huh? What it is is the kinda owners we're talking about have very low payrolls and rake in a lotta money from the teams over the payroll limit who have to pay a "luxury tax"
Principalpoop: i think they make more money from shirts and hats now anyway, if the team wins or loses...
Dexter Fong: They just pocket the money rather than acquire better players
Principalpoop: the owners have teams as hobbys, they are incredibly rich...
cs: i like the chris rock line about that.
Principalpoop: uh oh, hit me
cs: shaq is rich. the owner of his team is wealthy
Dexter Fong: Yes, but some think the hobby should make a lot of money for them others *now* that if you filed a winning team, you *will* make a lot of money
Dexter Fong: *Know*
Principalpoop: who was the redskins owner who was hands on? that can be trouble hehe
Principalpoop: snyder, snicker?
Dexter Fong: Daniel SNYDER?
Dexter Fong: mayhaps?
cs: yankees owner was about as hands on as possible
Principalpoop: i don't know the details, i just got the idea he was a hole who fouled up the team
Principalpoop: the old guy bennet williams was not hands on
Dexter Fong: He's a classic asshole owner, hires a coach then spends all his time with that quarterback, the viagra salesman who 2nd guesses every coaching decision
cs: growing up in la, we loved omalley for bringing us a winning baseball team and signing jackie robinson. brooklynites dont see it that way
Principalpoop: thiesman was never in the same class as jurgensen or kilmer
cs: great line in a dave zirin column about that
cs: brooklynite sports writer for The Nation
Dexter Fong: Wow! Poop goes leather helmet on us
cs: if you had a gun with 2 bullets and went into a room with stalin, hitler and omalley, who would you shoot?
Principalpoop: omalley twice
cs: answer: you'd shoot omalley twice to make sure he was dead
Dexter Fong: Hitler, twice
cs: you knew that one
Principalpoop: same with shooting gringrich twice in a room with foley and towers lol
cs: i think la had a football team at one point but i dont know if its missed
cs: rams, as i recall.

Principalpoop: ahh you are ok, that is ahh good news
Dexter Fong makes note to self: Strike Poops name from the Codocil
Principalpoop: no airplanes hitting buildings or nothing?
Dexter Fong: Nope, just a lot of bicycle ride by shootings at city playgrounds during basketball games by teenagers
Principalpoop: i had no nap today, i will probably be blurting, again this night
Dexter Fong: Young teenagers

Principalpoop: and pussy cats to eat them when the sun goes down
Dexter Fong: What's up Pussy Cat, oh, eww
Dexter Fong throws his underpants at the crowd
Dexter Fong dreams about the green green grass with tiny little filaments of gold and purple
Principalpoop: i should have left my hat on
cs: i see the On the Road flick is finally out
Dexter Fong: I should have cut my hair last night
cs: maybe david crosby can write a song about it, fong
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Dexter Fong: Cat: Is that a new film or a re-release?

Principalpoop: my memory of skim milk was yuck....
Principalpoop: i use it a lot
Dexter Fong: Yuck
Dexter Fong: (The preceeding may have been a blurt
Elayne: I use mostly soy milk with my cereal. Vanilla works best. If you use plain, you have to sweeten it (I use plain & stevia currently)

Principalpoop: maybe i need to try soy milk again, it was horrible years ago
Dexter Fong: You prolly drank it one time Cat

Dexter Fong: Go back to the source
Dexter Fong: =))

Principalpoop: ben and jerrys chocolate therapy is exactly that... 4 kinds

Elayne: Prinpoop, stick to chocolate and vanilla. I'd stay away from plain unless you have a sweetener too
Dexter Fong: Ah, a betel nut fan, eh?
Elayne: And realy, it's a supplement, like putting it on cereal or in yogurt. By itself, it's pretty meh
