DJTween: very cool
DJTween: Oh, Dex?
Dexter Fong: In Stereophile magazine
DJTween: Roller Maidens was very well done indeed
||||||||| Catherwood escorts Principalpoop inside, makes a note of the time (9:06 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
cs: hi poop
DJTween: I can believe that. Excellent production work
DJTween: Hey P

Principalpoop: i am snowed in, about 7 inches
cs: the firesign excelled in production
Thweeny: Yeah, I heard VA was going to get some snow
Thweeny: indeed, cease
Principalpoop: it started with rain, then hail then heavy snow all afternoon and still snowing
DJTween: Sounds like a mess
DJTween: Wouldn't want to be driving in that
Principalpoop: my electricity went out last night, that was fun
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 9:10 PM, dragging Elayne by the hair and asks "Can anyone vouch for this yo-yo?"
Elayne: Evenin' all!
cs: hi el
Principalpoop: hi E
Dexter Fong: Hi E
DJTween assumes P is being facetious
DJTween: Hey E
Elayne: DocTech isn't here yet, I see. Let me text him.
Dexter Fong: Hi E
Principalpoop: i am near a brick yard tween, those trucks make fast work of any snow or ice
Principalpoop: always facetious tween hehe
DJTween: Useful
Principalpoop: has anybody dated when text became a verb?
Elayne: Text has been sent
cs: wikipedia could probly tell you
Dexter Fong: Has anybody textwhen verbs became dated
Thweeny: I wonder if the dictionaries have picked up on that yet
cs: i want to know when often began to be pronounced off-ten
Elayne: It formerly was a verb meaning "to write in text letters" (1590s).
Elayne: http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=text
Principalpoop: around the same time as creation of the word sexting hehe
Thweeny shakes his cane at all those young whippersnappers who are destroying the language
Principalpoop: 2005 K3wl
Elayne: And for Cat: http://www.englishforums.com/English/AePronunciationSilentOften/zpkmk/post.htm
cs: i never heard that pronunciation until i came back from japan in 88
Thweeny: and so it would appear it had indeed become a legitimate verb
Elayne: Often' was pronounced with a t-sound until the 17th century, when a pronunciation without the [t] came to predominate in the speech of the educated, in both North America and Great Britain, and the earlier pronunciation fell into disfavor.
Elayne: Common use of a spelling pronunciation has since restored the [t] for many speakers, and today /ˈɔfən/[aw-fuh and /ˈɔf[awf-tuhn] or /ˈɒfən/[of-uhn] and [of-tuhn] exist side by side. Although it is still sometimes criticized, 'often' with a /t/[t] is now so widely heard from educated speakers that it has become fully standard once again.
Elayne: Just practicing my online research skills. ;)
Thweeny: Actually when I was a kid, I was taught to pronounce the T
Principalpoop: like monticello, can be cello or chello, both ways ok
cs: thanks el. i just wondered when it became common here. maybe there was a famous song with that pronuncation or a flick i missed
Elayne: Sorry Cat, my research isn't that specific. :)
cs: i grew up in la and dont recall hearing it
cs: thats ok, el
cs: not heard in vancouver when i lived here before either
Elayne: In recent years, listening to newscasters and the like, there does seem to be a trend toward pronouncing the "t". The issue has been discussed frequently in various English usage forums; the general consensus is that, for some reason, "of-T-en" is now perceived to be the prestige pronunciation.
Elayne: That's from http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/pronunciation-phonetics/75422-pronunciation-often.html
cs: aha
cs: when i was a teacher, i taught offen
Principalpoop: good, put that T to work, now work on the K in Knife
DJTween: lol cease
cs: lol poop
Dexter Fong: and in Cu-nickers
Elayne: I should think you'd want to teach all the time when you were a teacher, not just often.
cs: offen was good enough
Elayne: No response yet from DocTech on my trusty smartphone...
Principalpoop: iffen too?
Dexter Fong: frequenly
cs: can you use your phone as an acessory without having a phone plan?
cs: like to take pix or record audio
Elayne: From DocTech in email: I have been putting in 11-hour days regularly for the past 2 wks, I'm toast ... don't expect to see me on chat tonight.
Principalpoop: lordy
cs: sounds like doc
Elayne: My 11-hour day cycle is set to begin soon. Well, maybe only 10 hours...
Principalpoop: maybe he is wishing his obnoxious co-worker came back hehe
Elayne: We've got a rotating OT schedule, so it doesn't come 'round to me until next Thursday, then Saturday for 6 hours, then the following MOnday.
Principalpoop: keep you on your toes, watching the days and hours....
DJTween: Sounds like quite a stretch, E
||||||||| 9:27 PM: Pitts_Rheumy jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past half hour!"
Elayne: We go from late January through the end of April, trading off. I realy don't have that many OT days and evenings compared with the other three. They want the overtime money more than I do. :)
Principalpoop: is the second t in stretch silent?
DJTween: Hey Pitts
Dexter Fong: Hi Pitts
Principalpoop: howsit pitts
cs: hi pitts
Elayne: Evenin' Pitts!
Pitts_Rheumy: Howdy all!!
Pitts_Rheumy: Best to you, E.
Pitts_Rheumy: and cat, of course
DJTween: Listening to excerpts from the Box Of Danger collection this evening
Pitts_Rheumy: Nice package Tween
Thweeny: Box Of Danger - http://firesigntheatre.com/media/media.php?item=bod-tl
Thweeny: and yes, it surely is
Pitts_Rheumy: Who would have thought Danger could go that far, in so many directions and subjects
DJTween: Yes, he appears in so many FST works
cs: i think the lads knew they had a gold mine with the first adventure
DJTween: Could be
Pitts_Rheumy: paid the rent, often
DJTween: I'm sure
Principalpoop: don't start with the often again pitts
cs: i remember an interview with the lads where they talk about how easy it was to write danger
Principalpoop: lots and lots of movies and books about LA detectives
DJTween: The character makes a great base on which to build skits, for sure
Pitts_Rheumy: All the tongue in cheek 40's radio
Dexter Fong: and radio shows too
DJTween: yeah
cs: i know rayhmond chandler was a big influence on them
Pitts_Rheumy: Boston Blackie . . . .
Principalpoop: i thought of radio as I typed it, and got lazy hehe
cs: mayb e their largest literary influence
cs: except maybe the beatles
DJTween: The Beatles as a literary influence?
Pitts_Rheumy: They stood in for Pete Best??
DJTween: I have Lennon's "In His Own Write"
Elayne: Well, A Spaniard in the Works as well
Principalpoop: the culture and the media itself informed them
Elayne: I have both, I'm pleased to say
DJTween: oh yeah
Elayne: http://books.google.com/books/about/Reading_the_Beatles.html?id=_8Ob1bL_ongC
DJTween: Lots of easy pickins' from the 60's pop culture
cs: true, tween
Elayne: Despite the enormous amount of writing devoted to the Beatles during the last few decades, the band's abiding intellectual and cultural significance has received scant attention. Using various modes of literary, musicological, and cultural criticism, the essays in Reading the Beatles firmly establish the Beatles as a locus of serious academic and cultural study
Elayne: Wow, someone's full of themselves...
Thweeny: Interesting, E
Elayne: "We were just trying to write ourselves a swimming pool..."
Elayne: Not an exact quote. :)
Pitts_Rheumy: spawning the Rutles
Elayne: It was more like "Let's write a swimming pool"
Principalpoop: compare and contrast I want to hold your hand to Across the Universe, discuss
cs: i remember that qujote. thats why they all had houses in la
Elayne: Other fun McCartney quotes: http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Talk:Paul_McCartney
Elayne: "I am alive and well and unconcerned about the rumors of my death. But if I were dead, I would be the last to know.:"
DJTween: lol
Elayne: One of my favorites: I have no problem with bootlegs, although every time I say that, my lawyer says, "Oh yes you do."
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "9:39 PM and late as usual, it's Merlyn, just back from Funfun Town."
Principalpoop: Hi M
Dexter Fong: Hey Merlyn
Merlyn: hey hoo hah
cs: hi merl
Pitts_Rheumy: Hey M-man
Merlyn: I hope you are all poor, as in WSJ poor
Elayne: Evenin' Merlyn!
cs: hey right the dialy feed stuff isnt on box of danger either
Merlyn: look at all these sad, WSJ-poor people: http://i.huffpost.com/gen/944732/original.jpg

Elayne: "And there's no such thing as 'poor little rich girl'..." - Andrea Corr, who should know
Pitts_Rheumy: Ninety-nine Percent?
Elayne: (Actually, I don't know if she wrote that song, she probably has people to write them for her)
DJTween: Think they'll release video of the more recent concerts, cease?

Principalpoop: i give up, hurry the dog wants out and I must dress for snow
Dexter Fong: The Conga line at Century Village
Principalpoop: ewwww fong, brb
Dexter Fong: We'll be here on your return Poop, umlike last week
Elayne: Speak for yourself. I'm getting while the getting's good...
Dexter Fong: Night then Elayne

||||||||| Elayne says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, Elayne exits at 9:51 PM.
cs: ok el
Pitts_Rheumy: Hope T is feeling better and rested
Pitts_Rheumy: Bye E
cs: funny if you know la streets
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and pipes up "Announcing 'Woody 1', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:53 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the sitting room...
Merlyn: bye E
cs: hi wood
Dexter Fong: Hi Woody
Woody 1: I got in. What a wonder.
Pitts_Rheumy: Hey wood
DJTween: Hi Woody

DJTween: Lost your wikken powers?
Woody 1: Hah. I can.
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Woody 1: It's this f##c!n machine that's keepin' me in a quandry.
Bunnyboy: Hopeless. Licking Emma-puppy at my elbow. May BBL. Cheers1
Principalpoop: back, the snow knocked down a tree, just missed the porch, wow

Pitts_Rheumy: Ten is high as I count, take care all, exit door to right . . . . .
||||||||| At 10:04 PM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Pitts_Rheumy!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...

Woody 1: My PC is evil.
cs: HAL?
Principalpoop: no no, you must worship your pc
DJTween: one of those new Demonmaster 2000's?
Principalpoop: the new computers demand to be stroked
Principalpoop: soft caresses across their screens
DJTween: lol
Principalpoop: soon it will watch your eyes and listen to your voice
DJTween: They already do
Principalpoop: i meant all of them or most hehe
Woody 1: It's funny, most of you know I'm a writer. I'd recently written a short story that depicts a person encoundering a nightmarish experience with his computer. Sort of TWILIGHT ZONEISH,
cs: +so its autobiographical?
DJTween: Sounds like fun
Principalpoop: that is old sci-fi, you need to have the computer and main character fall in love hehe
Woody 1: My keys aren't functioning properly.
Principalpoop: maybe your pc is evil
Woody 1: WOW! That came out.
DJTween: Yes, obviously a defective keyboard ;)
Woody 1: Poop: It's more like mortal hatred.
Principalpoop: what must be it?
Woody 1: It did fine with the previous PC
DJTween: any of you catch the gun control discussion Proc started at Facebook?
DJTween: It got pretty heated
Principalpoop: the internet has lots of different kinds of folks
DJTween: you noticed
cs: yes it was surprising to see him so bergmanesque
Principalpoop: i argued with trolls for years and lost my temper, it took years to mature
Woody 1: NO. Will have to check it out.
DJTween: It started with his putting up a pic his daughter did satirizing new armored clothing for school kids
Principalpoop: now I only argue with folks I know are reasonable, even if wrong hehe
Principalpoop: wow
DJTween: Yeah, some folks just get a kick out of getting a rise out of you
Principalpoop: Article 1 of the Constitution give congress the power to suppress insurrections, so much for the 2nd amendment to fight govt scheme...
cs: speaking of the constitution, i noticed today a post identifying the real reason for the 2nd ammendment. the militia it refers to were there to catch escaped slaves and prevent their insurrection
Merlyn: what about insurreals?
Thweeny: FB post - https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151244984158752&set=a.44777088751.57259.671658751&type=1&relevant_count=1
Woody 1: I'm going to try and finish The Simpsons Treehouse of Horrors DVD--so far terrible selections. I liked the first ones. My wife went to bed. I don't blame her.
cs: http://truth-out.org/news/item/13890-the-second-amendment-was-ratified-to-preserve-slavery
Woody 1: The first one was The Shinning--best one so far.
Woody 1: Nighty night.
Principalpoop: night woody
cs: usually one of the ihghlights of the year
cs: by wood
Dexter Fong: Night Woody
DJTween: The best and most succinct explanation I’ve seen so far is, “The 2nd Amendment wasn’t put in place so people could protect themselves from deer attacks. It was put there so people could defend themselves from tyrants.”
||||||||| At 10:24 PM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Woody 1!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
DJTween: but I know you folks disagree
cs: Actually, slaves, Tween.
Dexter Fong: Tyranical slaves....the worst kind
Dexter Fong: Never recognize the safety word
Principalpoop: what about the stated power of govt to suppress insurrections tween?
Dexter Fong: Supress insurections...they're attacking our insurance companies?
cs: no one has to be a slave all the time anymore.we gwine take turns. and guess whnose turn it is now?
DJTween: (reading the article)
Dexter Fong: Yours?
Principalpoop: how is fred gwine?
cs: a? an? the?
Dexter Fong: Still dead I believe
Principalpoop: like franco, ok
cs: i aint gwine whistle dixie no more, sings taj mahal
cs: one of my favourite songs
DJTween: It's an interesting argument
cs: i first heard it when he performed it at the ash grove with the firesign theatre in 69
Principalpoop: a state is not allowed to secede either, many already tried...
cs: john simon on piano. later stole bergman's girlfriend.
cs: allthough that'
cs: a large club
DJTween: but I tend to believe that while slave insurrections were a concern, the 'security of a free State' business referred to their concern over a tyrannical Federal government
Dexter Fong: you go Tween!!!
Principalpoop: we have regular elections, that is by definition, never a tyranny
Principalpoop: George Wallace could have been president, just poor losers claiming tyranny
DJTween: You are of the opinion that the last Presidential election was more than a sham?
Dexter Fong: What are you saying Tween?
DJTween: Obama has taken Bush's policies and put them on steroids
Principalpoop: yes, elections do make a difference
DJTween: The banksters are still in charge
DJTween: We're still at war
DJTween: Obama has kept none of his campaign promises, as far as I know
Principalpoop: enough folks vote for banking reform politicians, we will have it
Dexter Fong: but we're bringing it back home
Principalpoop: raped military girls can get govt money for abortions now, important to them...
DJTween: Sorry, it's a rigged game, P
Principalpoop: don't give up tween
DJTween: I haven't. I'm a Libertarian
DJTween: I would have voted for Ron Paul
DJTween: The Republicans stole the nomination from him
Principalpoop: if enough people for a libertarian, we will have one, and your position informs the major parties
Principalpoop: not having a majority does not mean the game is fixed lol
Principalpoop: it means you don't have the majoriy, that is all
Principalpoop: convince me, and I will become a libertarian, you have failed to do so
Principalpoop: and claiming the gamed is fixed, degraded the game
DJTween: We'll have to agree to disagree :)
Principalpoop: sure, i respect your opinion, you are reasonable
Merlyn: that's metaphysically absurd!
Dexter Fong: Meet me in the stacks and I will become a librarian
Principalpoop: but I think you are wrong, I have been wrong, I could be wrong now
DJTween: hehe Dex
Principalpoop: shhhhh
cs: if i thought about politics as much as you, i'd need a librium
Dexter Fong: Why without your glasses, your still rather homely
Dexter Fong: lol Cat
DJTween: lol
Principalpoop: i was reading about the european catholics and protestants killing each other for hundreds of years
Principalpoop: things are indeed better, now
DJTween: That they did
Principalpoop: they learned to compromise, or you must kill the other...
Dexter Fong: Yep, now it's the Moslems killing everybody who isn't and some of those who are
Principalpoop: they will learn
DJTween: The Sunis and Shiites go after each other pretty regularly
cs: given enough time
Dexter Fong: Poop: It's been a really long time for them
Principalpoop: yes, but now we have mtv and twitter and air conditioning hehe
Principalpoop: let them get comfortable, like us lool
DJTween: ah, ok
cs: things are happening faster now, with the ease of communication
Dexter Fong: They've never had anything similar to a protestant movement, only varying degrees of zealotry
DJTween: Peace In Our Time through better Tweeting
Principalpoop: sure they have, turkey and egypt, syria
Dexter Fong: Through Tweening
DJTween: hehe
Principalpoop: they can get along
DJTween: Can't we all just agree with me?
Principalpoop: no naysaying fong, nay to naysaying, oops wait
Dexter Fong: As long as those at the top hold the lid down
Principalpoop: no,let them steam and speak and we see how extreme they sound
Principalpoop: like the guy on piers the other night, he appears deranged, hides the words
Principalpoop: more danger, wow
