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 November 28, 2013 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| DJTween enters at 4:42 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and hurries off to the Hat Pack Annex.
||||||||| New notice: 'Tweeny and Rufus are taking the night off because it's Thanksgiving, but you can listen to the Firesign Theatre Radio Station >> http://firesigntheatre.com/index.php << while you chat this evening. Be sure to tune in next week, when we'll be playing Phil Austin's "Roller Maidens From Outer Space"'
||||||||| DJTween runs out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's DJTween?! It's 4:45 PM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 8:52 PM and EWeston bounds out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
||||||||| Catherwood escorts Beet inside, makes a note of the time (8:53 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Beet: HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all the Fireheads and our Friends present and absent.
||||||||| Catherwood leads Jimbo into the room, accepts three dimes as a gratuity, grumbles something about 8:54 PM, then departs.
EWeston: Evening Tweeny and those able to, to make it here today
Beet: I understand that the guys not being here but I hope you'll forgive me if I opt out for this session. See you next week and enjoy the holidays.
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies Cat in through the front door at 8:56 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
Cat: By Beet
EWeston: Cool Beet. A lot of internal pressure in da guts today, moving very slowly
Cat: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_jrJCRlItM
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, November 28, 2013 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
Cat: Anyone watching this?
||||||||| Catherwood stomps in at 9:01 PM, dragging Tweeny by the hair and asks "Can anyone vouch for this yahoo?"
EWeston: Perhaps later. It's a bit that I've heard is good
Tweeny: Evenin' folks, and Happy Thanksgiving
EWeston: Thought Tweeny was a self voucher?
Cat: our thanksgiving is in october
EWeston: No scrums at the Wallymart for you then tomorrow?

EWeston: Its a good mix of known and unheard before works
Cat: it attempts to be
Tweeny: Yeah, I heard some unfamiliar stuff the other day
Cat: i fear it is under reported
||||||||| Outside, the 9:08 PM uptown bus from Elmertown pulls away, leaving Merlyn coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Cat: hi merl
Tweeny: Hi Merlyn
Merlyn: hey
EWeston: If finding an audience were easy, the boyce would be multimillionairs
||||||||| It's 9:10 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Jimbo - dead from jaundice

||||||||| "9:18 PM? 9:18 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Elayne should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Elayne enters and sits on the couch.
Cat: hi el
Elayne: Evenin' all! And happy Thanksgiving to my fellow American citizens!
Cat: how deligtful to see you here again
Merlyn: hey E
EWeston: Elayne has made it away from the table!

Elayne: Went to the ancestral spawning grounds in Rockland County NY for Thanksgivingukkah with my cousins

Cat: after heaiing that, i really wanted to work with pete
Cat: how was the gobbling, el?
Elayne: So Cat, I have a conundrum. I want to honor Buy Nothing Day tomorrow, but I'd also like to get my oil changed. Does getting one's car serviced count as "buying?"
Cat: that's me. the lads fucking wiht my name on their satelite show
EWeston: No Mary Tyler Moore I'm guessing
Cat: no el. anything that you need to do needs to bd cond

Cat: is your mother in vegas now, el?
Elayne: Yes Cat, having Thanksgiving all by herself. Her brother and sister were not happy to hear that, they all really wanted her to come east for the holiday

EWeston: Our family usually gets together with food as an excuse.
Tweeny: So Vegas has some tasty stuff, eh?
Tweeny: Hi Elayne
Cat: yep
Tweeny: Do you gamble while you're there?
Cat: food is a way of experience the aesthetic.
Cat: or has been for me since august, 06
Cat: i fear that window is closed
EWeston: I'm finicky, but can't imagine eating all the good stuff in just a sitting ot so.
Cat: how much enjoyment can you get from something? it changes
Tweeny: You're tongue is deteriorating?
Cat: yeah e, you have to learn how to do it. i walk miles and lift weights between courses
EWeston: Even for my tastes, I can imagine a lot, of good food.
Cat: more philosphical than that, tween. my ability to find a way into a more attracitive aesthetic universe than this one seems ot have run its course i have to find another
Elayne: Cat, looks like you're looking in the aural area now rather than the oral one.
Cat: there is a transtion el.
Cat: i must kinda quit my mag job reviewing food. dec will be my last colmn
Cat: i want to think more about sounds and imagery and less about taste and words
EWeston: In combination Cat?
Cat: lol
Cat: it's hard for me to talk.
EWeston: What your ear's hear, and eye's see is some big realestate
Cat: i want to use what's left of my crretive abilities to be drawn to that which most atrracts them

Elayne: I'm going to fade out tonight, things to do and never enough time! Monday's my birthday, so next week I'll be a year older when I come say hi!

Cat: guess not
EWeston: Yeppers, thinking about what you might looking for in a product
||||||||| "Hey Cat!" ... Cat turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 9:59 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
EWeston: Bad timing there. I hope your quest works well for you, see you in a few weeks
EWeston: Merl's been fading for I bit as well. I think I will check out as well. Sides I got the lynch
||||||||| At 10:04 PM, EWeston hurries out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
||||||||| At 10:05 PM, Merlyn dashes out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
||||||||| Catherwood enters, and announces to all and sundry "It's 4:32 AM, time to change the log file and clean out unused rooms; please exit the chat room for a minute or two. Thank you for your patience."
