JUDGE_POOP: Thank you all for welcoming a noob to this space. First listen to Dwarf was 1968.
Cat: What happens to his site now, Doc?
Not Ed: Mesmerized
cpfirezine: All very sad to see, unfortunately. It's gonna take a while to get over this.
DJTweeny: Welcome Judge :) Hope you make this a regular Thursday evening thing
JUDGE_POOP: Thank you
DJTweeny: iwti Ed ;)
EWeston: That's pretty early exposure Judge. Mine was 72 Not Insane.

doctecazoid2: in the coming days i will be adding an 'in memoriam' page to the site
cpfirezine: Is there a way to link Al's site to the museum site where his Airship collection went.
DJTweeny: I'd imagine Doc can do that
JUDGE_POOP: I loved Not Insane. At the time I did not have reference points for it, they came later in life.
doctecazoid2: thing is, al had no direct relatives, and has not been in contact with his indirect relatives for many many years
DJTweeny: Not Insane is a bit much for the non-initiated lol
doctecazoid2: cpfirezine: in the news page of his site there are links about him giving his blimp stuff to the goodyear people in akron
JUDGE_POOP: No doubt
Beet: My ibitiation was 1970 with Electrician
doctecazoid2: i do not know if they will be making any of his material available to people on their site

Beet: initiation
EWeston: Myself too. I lent it to an English teacher once. It had her and her friends rolling o the floor
Johan Amadeus Myjetski : My first FST experience was a friend of my older brother's playing Dwarf for me in 69.
DJTweeny: very cool, EW
Cat: I started listening to Bergman's Radio Free Oz when it moved from FM to AM in I think, April, 67
JUDGE_POOP: Dwarf is so burned into ROM, and its compelling to me that today it is a reality.
Cat: Heard and recorded the Magic Mushroom shows of later that year.
JUDGE_POOP: As is Bozos.
Cat: I think the earliest actual plays they wrote
DJTweeny: excellent Cat
cpfirezine: There was always a lot of material that didn't make the final cut. Had everyone been on the same page, Not Insane would have been great.
Cat: Is that so, CP?
DJTweeny: yeah, it's a bit disjointed
DJTweeny: still some great material in there though
Cat: You know your Firesign history more than I
EWeston: It's a pretty dense piece of work as it is
Johan Amadeus Myjetski : I went out not many months later & bought a Two Places, & that’s the one burned into my ROM.
doctecazoid2: http://www.firesigntheatre.com/martian/index.html
cpfirezine: I just went through the oral history when I digitized the Firezine interviews. It's pretty complete.
JUDGE_POOP: Do you think they will vault release that Not insane material?
||||||||| Mayor P'nisnose strides up to the podium and speaks: "My fellow Armenians, if you have questions about exorcism, buy the new book "EXORCISM IN YOUR DAILY LIFE", now on sale. Incidentally, so is my vote."
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and pipes up "Announcing 'Elayne', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:28 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the Aviary...
DJTweeny: Hi Elayne
Cat: I played Electrician for a potential girl friend in Saskatchewan once. Did not make that mistake again.
EWeston: Mz Elayne
Elayne: Evenin' all. Great to see you have a tribute to AIrship Al.
Beet: Hi Elaybe
Cat: HI El
cpfirezine: I don't know that much of the Not Insane material ever got recorded the way it was planned
Beet: Elayne
DJTweeny: NI is sort of a montage
doctecazoid2: it became a montage, though i'm not sure it was intended to be as such
doctecazoid2: hey e
EWeston: A lot of it shows up in the radio work comtemporary or other wise
cpfirezine: I recently digoitized the entire series of Firesign interviews for Firezine. It's a pretty complete oral history, in their words.
Rufus_T_Firetween: ** Check out Doc Technical's Facebook announcement about Al at >> https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2175970109085624&set=a.123263917689597.21278.100000179674464&type=3&theater&comment_id=2176159922399976¬if_t=feedback_reaction_generic¬if_id=1525288279065739

doctecazoid2: cp: a massive project i imagine
cpfirezine: This is a mojor project, so sit tight. I'd like to get it done while we can still dance to it.
Cat: cp, ossman posted several pix of him and family filling boxes of their stuff to send to the library of congress. i asked taylor but he didn't answer. is that the totality of thier recorded work? that must be vast
cpfirezine: Major!
doctecazoid2: cp: guaranteed i'll give it a 78 because it's got a good beat and it's easy to dance to
EWeston: I'll order new dancin shoes
Cat: I hope I'm not the only person doing things with their legacy of recorded work in making these collages
Cat: When I was recording them off the air in late 60s-early 70s, I thought everyone was doing that.
doctecazoid2: https://photos.smugmug.com/Saddle-Shoes/Adult-Saddle-Shoes/i-wWqmn29/0/O/Shoes%20Adult.jpg
||||||||| 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: Hi Doc! Sorry, didn't see you there. Are you going to Queens tomorrow as planned then?
cpfirezine: I see there is a new FGiresign TheatreDVD project coming soon.
Cat: LA had 12 million people in those days (i think 19 today?) and many of them must have had tape recorders and listened to firesign. it's staggering to think i'm alone in having recorded them in the early days
EWeston: Step away from the door knocker
Cat: Yohi
doctecazoid2: e: yes
Beet: Hi Yohi
cpfirezine: Al was amazing with that archive Doc
||||||||| 9:37 PM -- Yohi left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").

cpfirezine: He seemed to know exatly where everything was in there.
JUDGE_POOP: Would love to see the DVD release.
Elayne: OMG, I didn't realize that was you, Chris! It's really like old home week here.
