Hemlock Stones (Genuine)!: Hello Beet. It's been a while as I have been meditating on the White House for nearly a year.
Rufus_T_Firetween: haha
Cease: did you meditate it off the ground?
Beet: were there many demons in your meditation?
||||||||| 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."
Johan Amadeus Myjetski : Background music is Gustav Holst “Saturn, Bringer of Old Age” from the Planets Suite
Hemlock Stones (Genuine)!: Yes, Cease. I think you have an excellent point. I am hoping that Glutomoto can take a ride to Mars with the current occupant of the White House.
Beet: One of my favorite symphonies.
Johan Amadeus Myjetski : Mine, too!
Hemlock Stones (Genuine)!: I love Gustav Holst, too. Did you know that he had a musical daughter? Imogene was her name, I believe.

Beet: I'll have to check her out.
Hemlock Stones (Genuine)!: Hi Rufus, I didn't know that ELP covered "Mars." Thanks!
Rufus_T_Firetween: "The band's self-titled studio album was a return to the familiar ELP style, with long progressive rock suites, mellow ballads and a classical theme ("Mars, the Bringer of War" by Gustav Holst, a piece previously performed by Lake during his tenure in King Crimson)"
Hemlock Stones (Genuine)!: And what is the Friedstein Theatre, dear friends? I am sorry to hear that Mr. Stein was fried.
||||||||| 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."
Rufus_T_Firetween: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emerson,_Lake_%26_Powell
Johan Amadeus Myjetski : To its did the entire Planets suite and it was sweet!
Rufus_T_Firetween: and I didn't know that Lake had done it with King Crimson
Johan Amadeus Myjetski : Tomita
Hemlock Stones (Genuine)!: Question: Do any of you understand "Don't Crush that Dwarf Hand me the Pliers." I keep trying!
Cease: what don't you understand?
Johan Amadeus Myjetski : Well, I have awaited paisley sunrises....
Rufus_T_Firetween: My understanding is that it refers to when the knob on a TV tuner is broken
Rufus_T_Firetween: Using pliers instead
Beet: Tirebiter becomes enlightened.
Hemlock Stones (Genuine)!: Yes, the Planets suite is sweet. The Nutcracker Suite is sweet as well.
Rufus_T_Firetween: Dwarf, I can't explain
Cease: and the midgets who worked inside airplanes after wizard of oz, only people small enough to get in there with the pliers
Rufus_T_Firetween: ah, interesting
Cease: it's basically a koan.

Cease: that's ok, tween.
Rufus_T_Firetween: "More memories from Phil's autobiographical podcasts: a very interesting evening in Denver, or VD near. Mama Roux beckons. High attitude bombings with the boys on the road. J Men are busy being born. Kristen greets reality. We give Phil and Pete a break. The Proctor Bergman Report does fashion, and the coming cloud of tiny TVs. The Wailers fail to do any clog dancing. What did that man say? Brian meets Big Nose. Tons of fun in Toronto. Getting bombed with Marshall at Google U. Steve Martin explodes. Firesign surfs the new wave, and reality applauds."
Cease: oh i see
Hemlock Stones (Genuine)!: Right, Johan!
Hemlock Stones (Genuine)!: Thank you, Rufus! Alas! Some sanity in this country!
Cease: i hope you are all listening to phil's podcasts, which is where this is from.

Cease: good idea, tween
llan: I hate this music
llan: lol
Cease: can we make plans for next thurs, tween? great radio to watch?
Rufus_T_Firetween: what's the run time?
||||||||| Catherwood tosses another cheese log on the fire and intones, "If you want to keep the cornstarch off your mukluks this season, buy a hoodie or a sweatshirt at the Firesign corner Cafepress store."
Cease: did you get the drop box? around 57
Rufus_T_Firetween: yeah, I have it
Rufus_T_Firetween: and what to go with it?
Cease: last couple of minutes about the texas tv show it was recorded from so maybe delete that
Rufus_T_Firetween: btw, will insert the correct intro into the audio archive ;)
Cease: you have to play the firesign's pass the indian please at some point
Rufus_T_Firetween: Send me what you want me to play
Cease: it was their thanksgiving piece.
Cease: anyone else have a suggestion?
Rufus_T_Firetween: Sure, we could throw in Humbolt County and Pass The Indian
Cease: and what about the holy crowly hour? is that on for pete's birthday?
Rufus_T_Firetween: maybe think of an hour's worth of native american stuff
Rufus_T_Firetween: A Shadow Passes
Cease: the whole indian riff from in the next world
Cease: a shdow moves is one of my favourite things.

Rufus_T_Firetween: Never heard of it
Cease: i only have a few episdodes.
Cease: dont know how many thre were
Cease: taylor would know
Rufus_T_Firetween: Oh BTW, Taylor says that the first bits of the new Firesign Download Store are coming together: The Firesign download store is operating on BandCamp as we speak at https://firesigntheatre.bandcamp.com/releases . There's just one item for sale for now, only because we've been slammed with archival duties for a long time; David has multiple books in various stages of production, and I spent six months last year and this year digitizing the entire Firesign archive before we shipped it to the Library of Congress. Since then I've been focusing on the "Fighting Clowns of Hollywood" download package, which will be big - 7 hours of live shows, most of the material never before heard, plus a big PDF with photos / articles / other ephemera that's already at 70 pages and climbing. Lots more downloads
Rufus_T_Firetween: Lots more downloads planned, including the Rhino "We're Doomed" trilogy, the Magic Mushroom plays, Fools in Space, Jack Poet Volkswagen (e.g. The Big Collection of Real Firesign Radio Ads), and a whole lot more. I wish they could all be available faster, but in the fast-cheap-good pyramid we picked "cheap" and "good".
Rufus_T_Firetween: So, it's actually in the works :)
Beet: Music to my ears, Dr Tween
Deputy Dang: Wow--that's astounding, Rufus!
Cease: wonderful news, tween.
Rufus_T_Firetween: Yeah, sounds very cool :)
Deputy Dang: Vu ja de?
Rufus_T_Firetween: Great that they're going to release the Mushroom Plays finally
Rufus_T_Firetween: Cease, does Taylor have a full accounting of your archives?
Cease: not sure
Cease: i gave him a lot
Cease: it never ceases to amaze and annoy me that so few of use who heard firesign kept copies of what we heard
Cease: us
Deputy Dang: Many people at The Mad Music Archive have said that, too.
Deputy Dang: I have some (non Firesign Theatre) cassettes that need recovery and archiving.
Cease: on a proctor bergman interview i was listeing to today, bergman says no one was interviewed on radio more than them.
Johan Amadeus Myjetski : Ersatz & ephemeral, their humor seemed to exist only in the fleeting present moment.
Cease: kinda hard to believe, but there are no end of them
Cease: yes you do, dang
Cease: i have lost vast amounts to improper storage, or just general old age
Cease: i'm glad they put a vast amount of their stuff in the library of congress, which should preserve it as well as anyone
Rufus_T_Firetween: Indeed, master preservationists
Johan Amadeus Myjetski : Gotta go for tonight, folks! I am giving thanks to all of you all for the smiles, chuckles, giggles & guffaws. See you next firetime!
Cease: by jam
Rufus_T_Firetween: Until last time, again Johan
Cease: what happened?
Beet: See you next time, JAM.
Cease: its back
||||||||| Catherwood tosses another cheese log on the fire and intones, "If you want to keep the cornstarch off your mukluks this season, buy a hoodie or a sweatshirt at the Firesign corner Cafepress store."
Rufus_T_Firetween: Sounds good here, Cat
Cease: just a moment of silence.
Rufus_T_Firetween: a net glitch maybe
||||||||| 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!"
Rufus_T_Firetween: the archive is lossless audio directly from the feed being sent to the station
Rufus_T_Firetween: so the archive is always accurate
Cease: im delighted to have it archived
Cease: its great to hear the pythons and the firesigns take on the same thing.
Rufus_T_Firetween: Ultimately archived and posted at 320k MP3, but I doubt most people would know the difference between lossless and 320k
Rufus_T_Firetween: Python has some great moments
Rufus_T_Firetween: Their parody of The Sermon On The Mount is hilarious, for sure
||||||||| 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!"
Rufus_T_Firetween: "They couldn't quite hear what Jesus was saying..." lol
Cease: i agree with blessed are the cheese makers
