||||||||| Catherwood enters with Johan Amadeus Myjetski close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 9:14 PM tree-stunting plans, and scurries off to the vestibule.

Elmer Ho: didn't realize that somehow until now
cease: Scroll down to Saturday, May 21, 2005, El, see if you remember my visit 12 years ago.
Elayne: Elmer, they recycled lots of stuff, much of it tightened up from earlier iterations.
cease: Next week I'm doing a collage called Meetings with Mr. Fong combining my visits with Dex in 05 and 2010.
rebozoette: you safe from fires?

NancyKat: "You have violated robots riules of order..."
Elayne: Thanks for the blog memories, Cat! Today is my 15th blogiversary. Can't believe I've been doing Pen-Elayne since 7 September 2002!

cease: Like the Firesigns, you are endlessly creative, El.
||||||||| Catherwood enters and asks "Is there anythynge you want? By that I mean Anythynge You Want To, Shakespeare's Lost paperback Comedie in pre-electronic book form!"
Elayne: I like Indian food a heck of a lot more than it likes me.
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: Catherwood, give everyone an echo.
||||||||| Catherwood gives everyone an echo.
Elayne: Well Cat, lately my creative impulses have all been going towards work stuff, but I have the next four days off (well, two days off plus a weekend) so let's see what I can come up with.
cease: I'm not that fond of Indian anymore, but Dex used to remind me that I Loved the cauliflower in tomato sauce at that restaurant.
Beet: Amazing how diverse they made 2 guys sound.
Elayne: Catherwood, please give me another pina colada.
||||||||| Catherwood gives Elayne another pina colada.
Beet: saag panir.
||||||||| Ralph Spoilsport drives in through the door and says "Buy a new or used T-shirt from the Firesign Theatre Cafepress store! Hurry before this sentence ends!"

Beet: naan
Rufus_T_Firetween: ** Archives For The FIRESIGN CHAT SHOWS can be found at: www.kurtericson.com/txroadkill/roadkillshow
Beet: pakora
Elayne: Unless it's plum wine with the plum on the bottom, that I'll eat.

Elayne: dopiazi, baby
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: Beet: naan with mint chutney. Mmmm...
Elayne: Garlic paratha
Beet: yummy
cease: The Firesigns LOVED doing Indian voices in the old days.
Elayne: And of course the late Mr. Bergman's favorite, Nasi Goring
Elayne: Neve boring!
||||||||| Bebop Lobo reminds all you hep cats to listen to Firesign’s NEW 24/7 RADIO STATION Click to listen anytime!"
NancyKat: YAY! *gets down*
Beet: gulb jamuns
NancyKat: Beet-YES! PLEASE!
EWeston: Shake it toots
Elayne: I'm starting to have major problems with the casual racism inherent in doing some of those accents.
NancyKat: GoGo Bootstep
Beet: Catherwood give everyone a thali
||||||||| Catherwood gives everyone a thali.
Elayne: I know you can't blame people for not being ahead of their time, but come on. They were a head in their times!
NancyKat: Fangs!
EWeston: Often thought that about some myself
||||||||| Catherwood stops by and announces "While you bozos sit here in the Waiting Room, why not shop at the Firesale store?"
DJTweeny: I can't imagine any of them having a racist bone in their bodies, Elayne
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: Fangs Berry Butch
||||||||| The TV flickers on, and Ralph Spoilsport appears: "How can you drive in two places at once when you don't have a genuine Ralph Spoilsport license plate frame? Get one for your car and one for the plate in your head!"
EWeston: On the other hand their female characters are usually solid
EWeston: Though the mean to Bambi joke cross's all kinds of PC
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: Without being sexist, E?
NancyKat: E-I see by your Blog that you like the Foglios-Girl Genius is awesome. I sooo want a shirt.
EWeston: They are usually being themselves as hard as they can
Elayne: Have to agree with Johan, E. I can't even listen to Roller Maidens, I find it really cringeworthy.
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: Bambi Meets Godzilla.... ultimate 'mean to Bambi' joke...
NancyKat: JAM_Very.
rebozoette: the gods are
Elmer Ho: agree with Elayne but have to remind myself that it was a different time
Elayne: Yep Nancy, been following the online comic for awhile. I know Phil and Kaja as casual acquaintances as best, we've met a couple of times...
EWeston: Should be some song called Bambi Gets a Chain Saw
Elayne: Yes Elmer, but as I said above, you expect greater things from greater people. You can presage the computer generation in Bozos, but you can't conceive of women's euql worth as people?
NancyKat: E-Cool! You may also like Clan Of The Cats and Mixed Myth.
DJTweeny: /me loves Roller Maidens partly because it IS so politically-incorrect ;)
Elayne: Wish I had the time to read more comics, NancyKat, but thanks
||||||||| Nick Danger sneaks in and whispers "Get the scuttlebutt on Box of Danger here, whatever that means..."
Elayne: Well Tween, that's privilege for you! :)
Elmer Ho: oh absolutely Elayne -- I was referring to your comment on the ethnic accents
rebozoette: it went horizontal
||||||||| Captain Equinox flies in through the transom, landing on the bearskin rug. "Attention, solstice squad! After working a 12-hour day, I like to kick back and swill some juice out of a genuine Firesign coffee mug or Bear Whiz Beer stein!"
DJTweeny: haha Elayne
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: I came to the same conclusion watching a mid-30s Charlie Chan movie recently. The lead guy's not Asian, but they hired a lot of Asians, & blacks, & gave them onscreen credit, which VERY few filmmakers did in that time, yet made them act out stereotypes that are, as you sayd, cringeworthy
Elmer Ho: Bergman's black accent makes me shudder
NancyKat: E-Agreed.
Elayne: They could be so aware on some things, like the contemporary plight of Native Americans, but not on others... sometimes frustrating
rebozoette: anchovish
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: An audial equalvet of blackface, Elmer?
Elmer Ho: basically yeah, JAM
Elayne: But you know, they grew up on radio shows in the 30s and 40s so there's that influence.
Elayne: Ah well, my cat demands my attention. Next week, all!
Beet: Arguments pro and con are so complex I usually just back off.
EWeston: There was a nice musical interlude in one of the Marx Bros film in the Black part of town, with Harpo
||||||||| Catherwood says "9:42 PM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs Elayne by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: At least, he didn't use it to promote the stereotypes, as FST humor was infinitely eriudite
NancyKat: BB-E!
||||||||| Bill Sprawl pokes his head in through the window and shouts "MARCHING TO SHIBBOLETH! Click to order!"
Elmer Ho: so long Elayne! say hello to the kitty
cease: By El
EWeston: By E
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'PrincipalPoop', just granted probation at 9:42 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
Beet: See ya Miss E
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: Nite, Eliane!
PrincipalPoop: hi bye e
EWeston: Weird timing Pooper, suits you
Beet: Hi Mr Poop
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: PP! how's it ?
cease: HI Poop
DJTweeny: Hi PrincP

Johan Amadeus Myjetski: wiki says "undisclosed illness" I hate it when my undisclosed gets sick...
Beet: All these folks craoking in their 60's Makes me feel ancient at 71.
DJTweeny: as bad as Glaubner's
PrincipalPoop: they say an illness rather than autoasphixiation or something like that
PrincipalPoop: 71? fossil!!!
Beet: Yeah
PrincipalPoop: how are the 70s compared to the 60s?
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: A lot of these guys lived hard in their youth, then continued to tour steadily into middle even old age. Touring is hard on a healthy body, I can tell you...
DJTweeny: more disco
Elmer Ho: NYT sez "Last month, Mr. Fagen told Billboard, “Walter’s recovering from a procedure and hopefully he’ll be fine very soon.”
Beet: Music is pretty good
Elmer Ho: so, most likely natural causes of some sort
EWeston: Smaller, but cleaner!
NancyKat: Found out the other day that my BFF's BF is also a Firehead...She had that shocked look on her face as she looked in (horror?) from me to him to me to him and I was as giddt as a schoolgirl. I've been trying to get her to listen to Nick Danger because she loves Noir, detective stories (She's written and published a modern Noir) and has a wicked sense of humor. Hopefully he can pursuade her.
PrincipalPoop: get her stoned and just sit in the room with record going lol
Elmer Ho: has a truce been negotiated in the Filipino Cheese Ball War?
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: She's sounds like she's got all the qualifications NancyK
EWeston: Untamatagaga
Beet: Tagalog sounds so unusual. They do it amazingly well, too
Elmer Ho: a little sex lang
PrincipalPoop: the war with the cows ended peacefully
Not Ed is not Ed.
NancyKat: JAM-Unfortunately, she doesn't enjoy PDQ, even though she's also a music person...which doesn't give me much hope. Here's hoping!
PrincipalPoop: lady gaga tata what?
cease: apparently a malay-based language.
Elmer Ho: I have a marginal reading competence for Tok Pisin, another neat language
NancyKat: What work is this bit from?
EWeston: Constipation picked up
Not Ed: Bye bye Becker. Nobody gets the Dan these days, the poops.
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: That's a shame, PDQB is hilarious, IMO.
PrincipalPoop: the new heavy metal is mad, just mad
||||||||| Bill Sprawl pokes his head in through the window and shouts "MARCHING TO SHIBBOLETH! Click to order!"
NancyKat: NotEd-I enjoy them, but not as much as some others-i just can't get too into Jazz or Blues too much.
Elmer Ho: PDQB -- man that's been around a long time
Not Ed: I understand NancyK
Beet: I remeber when the the points on the dial would wear out from turning them so often.
cease: everyone has their own tastes
Elmer Ho: is Schickele (sp?) still alive
PrincipalPoop: i thought it was something you ordered at dairy queen, what is it?
NancyKat: JAM-Exactly! Toot Suite...
Not Ed: When pop lost the Dan, it lost its connection to jazz harmony
NancyKat: Elmer-I DO believe so.
Not Ed: listen to Steve Gadd! wow
Beet: They always picked the hottest musicians.
Not Ed: I think that was Gadd
Not Ed: always
PrincipalPoop: are you with me dr wu?
EWeston: It's a month with a clam in it
Not Ed: great album
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: I think I remember running into PS (PDQB) in a studio in Ft. Lauderdale in 70 or 71. Watched him record a couple of takes.
cease: did you read ricki lee jones' comment on becker's death? very heavy
DJTweeny: I read that instread of relying on 'fix it in the mix' technology, they would spend hours finding the right instrument and the right mic to record it
DJTweeny: can you post it, cease?
Beet: I run to you.
Not Ed: Aja is special
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: Yep, DJT. REAL music
rebozoette: h ew
cease: https://www.yahoo.com/music/read-rickie-lee-jones-apos-215033517.html
cease: synchornistically, from rolling stone.
PrincipalPoop: I had just dropped some acid and I was on my way to see Led Zeppelin for their KC concert
cease: just as bergman is quoting from rs.
PrincipalPoop: lordy
DJTweeny: "People didn't spit on us becuase we spat first." lolol
NancyKat: JAM_Wow-nice! Another comedy great my Mom introduced me to.
Not Ed: indeed, Tween, and the guys weren't shy about it, that reputation for rehearsal and precision and many takes
rebozoette: abd a one
PrincipalPoop: cool cease

Johan Amadeus Myjetski: Top notch, cease, first quality!
Not Ed: haha the Dan rules
Beet: These are great
Elmer Ho: what's this tune?
cease: Show Biz Kids
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: When Dan came out, only John McLaughlin was putting that much jazz in while staying essentially in the rock idiom
Elmer Ho: thanks cease - heard it a few times but never knew the name
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: Lost Wages....
DJTweeny: Love McLaughlin's work
Elmer Ho: musicians were very divided over McLaughlin back in the day
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: Oh yeah, Elmer!
Elmer Ho: somebody (don't recall who) said "well, the man certainly has learned how to operate the guitar like a machine gun"
cease: was john ever in the rock idiom, jam?
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: He blew my mind when I saw Mahavishnu live
DJTweeny: I can iamgine, Johan

rebozoette: pork belly beer
cease: thjis was actually my first collage. i called it Deputy Steely Dan Has No Friends.
PrincipalPoop: that would be robin trower maybe
DJTweeny: I guess you'd call Mahavishnu 'Jazz/Rock Fusion'
Elmer Ho: very clever title cease!
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: Can't think of Trower without thinking of Frank Marino, for some reason
PrincipalPoop: or progressive, but that includes wine glass tapping
cease: I'd like to make a collage of my next trip to Vegas but I've used all the Firesign refs to Vegas so often that it would be stale.
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: Right, DJT!
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: Right about Jazz/rock, that is
EWeston: Sufing With the Alien had some high speed work
PrincipalPoop: some of fourplay is sorta rockish, but I would just call it jazz
