DJTweeny: better
J.A..M.: And a damn fine job it was, Cat! Congrats!

Beet: I'll second that.
DJTweeny: You have honed your art well, Cat :)
Cat: Then I must keep honing. My actors want lines!
Cat: The Tascam should allow me to make very clear recordings.
EWeston: More string!
Beet: You have a choice between Jewish and Buddhist writers.
J.A..M.: Oh yeah, Cat!
EWeston: Hetrodontal poets
Cat: I created my last play Box of Time because I was drinking in a bar accross from the school I was teaching at, and the other teachers, upon discovering I wrote radio play, insisted I write one for them to appear in.
J.A..M.: The homodontal poets prefer things al dente, I understand...
J.A..M.: And if you give them a line, they want four lines...
DJTweeny: kewl, Cat
EWeston: That'll kill his brother Joe
llanwydd: not exactly haiku style
Cat: I think turning out all these collages has inspired me to go forward with other things
Cat: saw a great show about Japanese artists who works in a variety of media and he inspired me to do the same
DJTweeny: ** Any requests for future shows, folks?
J.A..M.: Seriously, I am glad to hear you say that, Cat
EWeston: Not Zazu style meither
DJTweeny: Cat, will you have a collage next week?
Cat: what did you think of the way your character was audio portrayed, llan?
Cat: say waht?
||||||||| 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!"

Cat: hav a couple of pieces in the works but not sure about them yet
DJTweeny: OK, then folks the whole show will be dedicated to RFO's The Great Internet Broadcast of 1996
llanwydd: he is definitely an interesting character
J.A..M.: Paws four a moment...
DJTweeny: I think you did great, llan :)
Cat: did you notice that everybody had a different audio space?
EWeston: If you can do vynil Tweeny a have a few Goon Show records. For maybe a future show

Cat: great idea, tween
DJTweeny: yep, Doc did a great job
llanwydd: it didnt sound like we were all together
Cat: i want to respond to chat request for my tales of involvement with firesigns, going back to near their begininngs
DJTweeny: My turntable isn't operational at the moment, EW. Wonder if that stuff is in the archives at Archive.org?
Cat: indeed, llan
Beet: Apparently we are very dupe-able.
Beet: As a country
Cat: I hope I can create new plays, though they write themselves, I can't summon them into existence
EWeston: Not a place I'm familiar with The is a little bit on Utube. Milligans TV show has a few clips
J.A..M.: Don’t give them away. Let them get toad a way...
Cat: The collages however are somethings I have been able to bring forth in some vastness
llanwydd: we wouldnt be good americans if we werent dupeable
EWeston: We're still working on proper collusion though
Beet: Doesn't collusion mean being friends with someone?
DJTweeny: EW, if you can send me some digital rips, would be happy to play them
