||||||||| 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 May 03, 2012 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, May 03, 2012 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!" -- then he looks around at the empty room, looks at his watch, and mumbles "...am I early?"
||||||||| Catherwood stomps in at 9:00 PM, dragging cease by the hair and asks "Can anyone vouch for this web surfer?"
||||||||| Dexter Fong enters at 9:02 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and dashes off to the Hat Pack Annex.

Dexter Fong: Not really, just haven't found the time to do so, but I really should try
||||||||| "9:07 PM? 9:07 PM!!" says Catherwood, "MixMasterT should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as MixMasterT enters and sits in front of the fireplace.
||||||||| 9:07 PM: H Stones jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past hour!"
cease: retired and can't find the time? might as well be at work
Dexter Fong: What's on there?
cease: i bet this is tween
cease: joe auger said he couldn't access tuesday's podcast and i told him it was on duke of madness so he should have it already. then doc appeared with more techinical advice

MixMasterT: Is that like trickle-down, cease?
cease: i hope not
cease: yes, bambi and ah clem have pretty much left chat
H Stones: well if they are dribbling, i am not cleaning up after them
MixMasterT: If you want Bambi and JL back, I suggest you let them know :)
cease: poop shows up occasionally
cease: i just assumed they have something better to do, t
cease: in the 17 years of chat, lots of people have come and gone.
H Stones: what could possibly be bettter?
cease: only me and elayne are always here
cease: lol stones
Dexter Fong: My thoughts also
||||||||| Catherwood leads no_anchovies into the room, accepts an I.O.U. as a gratuity, grumbles something about 9:13 PM, then departs.
no_anchovies: i just dropp'd by to say hello... HELLO!
Dexter Fong: Hey no
H Stones: hello
cease: i was here the first night of chat, i'll be here until either chat or i die.
cease: hello no
no_anchovies: Q: i noticed some of your pix on the log pages. how does one go about uploading one's own, if one were thus inclined?
cease: ask merl when he shows up. he's the chat boss, no
cease: assuming he shows up tonight
no_anchovies: ah... i figger'd Merl was always here, even when he isn't. :- )
cease: you can reach him thru chat, i guess
no_anchovies: i'm assuming then that you emailed pix to Merl and he uploaded them. that is... there's no way to self uploade them, eh?
H Stones: must be the imaginary giant rabbit
cease: i wouldn't know, no
cease: the only harvey i know is wallbanger
no_anchovies: well C, you were aware that your picture is there?
H Stones: its the imaginary giant rabbit
cease: i didnt put it there, no. i think merl got it from somewhere. maybe he took it.
H Stones: hello again
no_anchovies: Have you ever been to Akron?
cease: merl, doc and i were in seattle for the 99 shows and the pic is from then
Dexter Fong: No, Elayne put my picture there someway, but I don't know how
cease: isnt that a fabric?
Dexter Fong: That
Dexter Fong: acrid
||||||||| H Stones is thrown out the window just as the clock strikes 9:20 PM.
||||||||| Outside, the 9:20 PM crosstown bus from Minneapolis pulls away, leaving Merlyn coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
||||||||| Catherwood leads H Stones inside, makes a note of the time (9:20 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Merlyn: who just flew by me?
Dexter Fong: Hi Merlyn
cease: speaking of merlyn...
H Stones: yo there
H Stones: i keep getting disconnected
Merlyn: A few days ago, I just realized something about Peter
cease: no has a question for you, merl
no_anchovies: He was gay?
cease: you forgot he's dead? excellent
Dexter Fong: Still?
Merlyn: ok shoot
H Stones: he lives on in all our hearts
Merlyn: I think his ex-wives would disagree
cease: reminds me of early snl joke, about franco still being dead
||||||||| "Hey H Stones!" ... H Stones turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 9:22 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...
no_anchovies: not important... there were pix of some of you on the log page and i'd wondered how to upload one.
[part 2 of 8]
||||||||| Catherwood enters with H Stones close behind, mumbles something about disrupting his 9:23 PM tree-stunting plans, and scurries off to the anteroom.
Merlyn: anyway, does anyone remember when Peter went from bald to completely bald?
Dexter Fong: I guess No is too shy to ask directly, so I'll do it to ere for him, How does one get one's photo on the site?
Merlyn: anchovies, I have to add it manually to the footer page, then it is added for each chat
no_anchovies: are we still splitting hairs about that?
H Stones: you mean the rogues gallery ?
cease: he was baldish when i first saw him in person in 69
||||||||| Catherwood leads Bunnyboy in through the front door at 9:24 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
Dexter Fong: I thought he was Jewish
no_anchovies: yeah, sorry, we got more than one thread going on here.
Dexter Fong: Hi Bunny
cease: hi bun
Bunnyboy: Drip drip drip
Merlyn: well cat, I was wondering if he went completely bald due to chemotherapy
H Stones: i am only an honorary Jew
Merlyn: he would be the only FT member who could hide that
Bunnyboy: Rainy, and onna bus. no_anchovies: i didn't know if you uploaded them yourselves, but now i know that Merl did them hisself. cease: was completely bald a fashion choice or a genetic dictate? i don't know
Merlyn: more like fashion choice or chemo
cease: was he on chemo?
MixMasterT: Hey Merl, NA
Dexter Fong: Perhaps he just didn't like the partial baldness and went for the shave
no_anchovies: hair yesterday, gone today...?
Merlyn: I don't know cat, that's why I'm trying to find out when he went 100% bald
Dexter Fong: Hare today, goon tomorrow
Bunnyboy: Chemo's no fun. MixMasterT: Good one, Dex
cease: i'm bald on top, but side hair is long and useful in cold weather
Merlyn: Here is the current rogue's gallery: http://www.firesigntheatre.com/chat/logs/fstfooter.html cease: lily would know.
Dexter Fong: Tween: Little Bunny foofoo
MixMasterT: You could really hear him strggling in that last Oz show, but he wasn't going down without a fight
cease: true, t
MixMasterT: Grid bless him, wherever he is
Bunnyboy: And you lose body hair, too. Uncomfortable indignity. no_anchovies: Chemo's no fun, he fell right over.
cease: i'm still trying to find out about the la show. i saw from wayne newit's post on facebook that austin didnt attend
Merlyn: anchovies, do you have a link to a pic you want added?
cease: jive mentioned attending, but no details. gretchen hasn't answered my email
MixMasterT: My Dad died of prostate cancer. Took a very long time for him to wither away. Not a way to go you'd choose :/
no_anchovies: thx Merl, i'll check.
cease: jive said it was called the Big Brouhaha, just like kirkland and proc menitoned the place was packed in his planet
Bunnyboy: Bailing the bus. Sooner or later!
cease: no t, slow death is no fun. my dad slowly expired from parkinsons and assorted cancers 4 years ago.
Dexter Fong: later Bunny
||||||||| At 9:31 PM, Bunnyboy vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
cease: it seems, from lily, that peter died relativley quickly, without a lot of serious pain
cease: by bun. keep on bussing
Dexter Fong: I wonder if Bunny was riding the terminal buss
cease: lily had some great, somewhat surreal tales about her dad.
no_anchovies The Quick Death, or The Slow Death. Thems Yer Choices
cease: he wanted to call her Winston Oscar Bergman. "shows you how much he wanted a son" she commented
cease: thaknfully he gave her a female name, although he called her lily because he loved garlic and onions and lilys are in the same family
MixMasterT: Yeah NA :/
no_anchovies: Winston O'Boogie.
H Stones: well its nighty night from me and Honeybunch
cease: did you know about that, merl?
cease: honey is with you?
no_anchovies: yeah, it's late in the U.K. nite Stones.
Dexter Fong: Perhaps Stones and Honey are Skyeping
cease: lily had another surreal tale. bergman had agreed to be cremated, then just before he died, he changed his mind
cease: told lily he wanted to be buried in either syria or new zealand.
Merlyn: did not know that cat; night stones
cease: she said, you want me to take your body to syria in the middle of its civil war?
cease: burying a jew in syria would be difficult at any time
Dexter Fong: It would seem to be appropriate - creamation- kind of a Firesign?
cease: the dope must be REALLY GOOD in syria
Merlyn: any picture yet no_anchovies?
cease: proc had a story about bergman smuggling dope out of syria. to turkey. what, isn't turkish dope good enough?
Dexter Fong: A rather dangerous caper
cease: osunds like smuggling dope from washington state into bc
||||||||| It's 9:40 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| H Stones - dead from pneumonia
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Merlyn: split a key with the sound man
Dexter Fong: Have the sound, man, key up a pliff
Dexter Fong: spliff
cease: speaking of spliffs, Merlyn: spleaking of spliffs?
cease: lily told a story about geting an email from orson about "how to roll a joint" and orson's dad chimed in loudly, "SPLIFF'
cease: actulaly orson has his own word for it, but david insisted spliff was better than joint
cease: didnt i tell that story last week on chat?
Dexter Fong: doobie do!
Dexter Fong: Don't think so cat
cease: we need lily here to tell her own stories, not me trying to remember them
Dexter Fong: You are Boswell to Lily's Dr. Johnson
no_anchovies: maybe this'll do, Merl? http://xa.yimg.com/kq/groups/7401694/sn/1920882835/name/FT102210_02lo... cease: boswell took notes. i just take drugs

Dexter Fong: I loves me some garlic and anchovy Pizza
cease: elayne told me she went
Dexter Fong: No Cat, altho I *did* attend a CNE in toronto back in the day
cease: i spent much of the afternoon trying to find out about a particular goody i ate at that fair.
cease: cne is every year. expo 67 once in a lifetime
Dexter Fong: and did ye find it laddie?
cease: one of the pavillions had a 5 senses thing. and the item for taste was a candy that changed flavour the more you sucked on it
cease: i think so, dex
Dexter Fong: Maybe they just layered the flavors?
cease: sounds kinda trite now, but a real novelty in 67
MixMasterT: I was at Expo 67 :-)
MixMasterT: Maybe we passed each other through the exhibits
Dexter Fong: And did ye suck on the candy?
cease: did you go to the Canadian Pacific-Cominco Pavillion, T?
MixMasterT: I'm sure I did
MixMasterT: Was a long time ago
cease: that's where the senses things were happening
cease: do you remember all the interesting flicks?
MixMasterT: Also NY in 64, and sometimes I get the exhibits confused
cease: that's my main memory of the fair. really interesting multi screen films in many pavilions
MixMasterT: Sure don't cease, sorry
no_anchovies: sorry for the delay.... Red Chex shirt. other guy is my friend Rick, sometimes known as Fred.
cease: i was at the new york one too, t, but i don't confuse them

MixMasterT: are they still doing World's Fairs?
cease: they had a big one in shanhai last year
Dexter Fong: Yeh but nobody cares anymore, they got the internet
MixMasterT: Thought it was such a great idea that there was one place where the soviets and the US could share some common ground
MixMasterT: We really need more of that, instead of peoploe relying on Fox News or whatever to tell them about other peoples
cease: too bad bun left or i'd ask him about the seattle fair. very good documentary on seattle pbs station about it recently
Dexter Fong: You could ask me Cat
cease: i remember the belgian waffles from the seattle fair.

cease: were you at the seattle fair, dex?
Dexter Fong: No, Cat
Merlyn: yes no, I can make your name a link in the rogue's gallery if you want one
no_anchovies (isn't very internet savvy...)
cease: i can ask you, "what does bunny remember about the seattle fair" but you woulndt be able to answer
no_anchovies: as Dustin Hoffman once asked Laurence Olivier... "Is It Safe....?"
Dexter Fong: And what did Olivier reply?}
Merlyn: anchovies, do you have a different link for the same picture? lynx chokes on it.
MixMasterT: One thing that stayed with me about Expo '67 was the experimental condos called Habitat

cease: they were a big thing in montreal, t
Merlyn: let me try imgr
no_anchovies: i suppose i could email one?
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Merlyn: wait a sec anchovies
MixMasterT: Also attended a work camp years later (1974) at an experimental city called Arcosanti - http://arcosanti.org/ MixMasterT: Montreal Habitat - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Habitat_67 cease: ive heard of that, t
Dexter Fong: Tween, were you incarcerated?
MixMasterT: Very cool that people were expeimenting with city architecture
no_anchovies: dang... i got it reversed. in "Marathon Man" it's Olivier who asks Hoffman if it's "safe."
MixMasterT: Yes, a tribunal sent me to the high desert of Arizona for crimes against the peoples
MixMasterT: Marathon Man is a fairly disturbing movie
MixMasterT: Not that there's anything wrong with that...
Dexter Fong: Yes, I saw it and can remember very little...prolly blocked it out
MixMasterT: Well blocked out
MixMasterT: How about 3 Days Of The Condor, with Robert Redford? One of my fav spy thrillers
Dexter Fong: Not disturbing
Dexter Fong: Just enjoyable
no_anchovies: yeah, "Condor's" underrated. i saw that being filmed one day back when.
Merlyn: blah, I'm using imgur and I can't d/l it with lynx for some reason

Dexter Fong: 64 for sure, dunno about 67
MixMasterT: Yeah, seemed like NY

||||||||| Merlyn says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, Merlyn exits at 10:58 PM.

Dexter Fong: Dice three onions and put them in a reefer pot, cover with marighana
Principalpoop: anchovies too
Dexter Fong: anchovys are an option
Principalpoop: joint, light up a joint
Dexter Fong: so too crystals of meth

Dexter Fong: Come back catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood rushes up to Dexter Fong and queries "Would you like something?"
Dexter Fong: Say goodbye Catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood says "goodbye"

Principalpoop: a gateway monkey?
MixMasterT: WYSIWYG page construction (Composer) Which, by the look of my web site may turn your stomach ;)
Dexter Fong: A cheeky monkey
cease: there is an italian gnocchi dish in sorrento called, in italian, "priest choker" but i think that refers to the priest wolfing it down, not dieing of pleasure
MixMasterT: Yes, Washington and Jefferson were 'cheeky monkeys' lol
cease: new turkish restaurant here in north van. i'll ask if they can make it
Principalpoop: trying to pronounce gnocchi would choke anybody
cease: most turkish food i've had has been very good
Dexter Fong: Washington especially, cause of his wooden teeth extending the cheeks
MixMasterT: Should be put in a cheeky monkey cage for suggesting a government by the people
Principalpoop: too much cinnamin
cease: its because the tomatoes there are extraordinary, enriched by that volcanic soil
MixMasterT: imagine the splinters during cunnalingus
Dexter Fong: in what?

Dexter Fong: Raonoke, the las Vegas of western Virginia

Principalpoop: if the usa was a person and sat down, roanoke would be thrust into darkness, hat tip to pynchon

cease: i havent read his last 2 novels.
Principalpoop: both fun, easier, than V or gravitys rainbow

Principalpoop: 18 million now? lordy
Principalpoop: oh LA lol

Dexter Fong: Cat: That's cause you wer always stoned
Principalpoop: like never seeing the entire mash movie

Dexter Fong: were past tense...into excitability
Principalpoop: imagine when LA builds up like downtown new york, lordy millions

Principalpoop: i guess they can't with earth quakes
[part 7 of 8]
cease: tokyo had 23 million when i left in 88, 35 million now, and thats only 24 years
Dexter Fong: Poop: Not a lot of bedrock in ALA compared to NYC, also city was layed out in 1600's
Principalpoop: yes fong, it occured to me after I blurted hehe
Dexter Fong: right on poop
Principalpoop: dig it fong
Dexter Fong: back atchu bro

Principalpoop: where is llan to keep up grounded?
Dexter Fong: I'll piss on it and put it out
Principalpoop: no, that is just the cat, i painted him flame colors
Principalpoop: yah go ahead Dexter Fong: I've wondered too about llan...maybe he's relocating?
cease: did you read bio of lord buckley?
Principalpoop: i hope so
Principalpoop: he hated florida
Dexter Fong: Hope he doesn't scratch me
cease: one of my facebook "friends" wrote it
cease: speaking of buckly, this is a firesign connection
Principalpoop: spoiler alert?
cease: a good friend of thiers sent me some letters he exchanged with del close, who was a friend of buckley
Dexter Fong: This is B. Baart Butugly telling you to buy Autolite Spark Plugs and stay connected to this Firesign
cease: i'm pretty sure fireguys knew del close as well.
Dexter Fong: Cat: You Know about Del Close and Second City?
cease: on i think their last magic mushroom show, xmas eve 67, bergman played buckely's scrooge
cease: that's who i'
cease: i'm talking about, cease: yes
Dexter Fong: aye aye?
Principalpoop: like the mescaline you forgot you had in the freezer?
Dexter Fong: Is that where I put it, Man?
cease: i remember a conversation with ossman who was putting down lenny bruce (whom i was defending) but raving about buckley. cease: if i had any mescaline, i woulndt forget it
Dexter Fong: What was his beef with Bruce?
cease: leeny died the year rfo began. coincidence?
Principalpoop: lenny did go ape, too far with the H
cease: i dont recall, dex
Dexter Fong: Well, yeah...he *was* an addict as most "H" users are
cease: i just know the 4 or 5 were into buckley big time
cease: i think buckely would have become a junkie too if he could have afforded it.
Principalpoop: some get throught it, just as most get through cocaine, but yes
cease: he took every drug he could get his hands on Dexter Fong: He was - in real life - a character. He and Spike Milligan would have terrified the world
Principalpoop: that was the culture, mind expanding
Dexter Fong: Buckley and Spike i mean
Principalpoop: i have not read the book
cease: i read somewhere that vast numbers of american soldiers did heroin in viet nam, as soon as they returned to the states they stopped, no lnoger necessary
Dexter Fong: "course Leny and Spike...or lenny and Lord would have too
Dexter Fong: terrified the worl I mean
cease: there is a story about neal cassady meeting lord buckley. that would have been an interesting conversation to listen to
Dexter Fong: What were we talking about, man?
cease: zappa played a show with lenny, but probably did not enjoy his drugged company
Dexter Fong: Whew! I meed a blurt in the worst way
Principalpoop: hold on, i am thinking too much
cease: i think zappa was more antidrug than the entire republican party
Principalpoop: brain going too fast, don't know what to blurt
Dexter Fong: I've got a holt o' this tomato
Principalpoop: like jonathan winters, naturally mind expanded
Principalpoop: didn't need chemical assistance hehe
Dexter Fong: naturally?
cease: good comparison.
cease: did you hear maron's interview with winters on his wtf podcast?
Principalpoop: not sure how much robin williams was natural lol
cease: very old, but brain still fully functional
Principalpoop: what about the firesign folks?
Dexter Fong: afkfr
Principalpoop: how much natural and how much hehe induced? lol
cease: i went to school with his son Jay 50 years ago
cease: probably a combination, poop
Principalpoop: and have to include the contact high of just being part of the late 60s early 70s
cease: i regret never having turned bergman on to some of the good stuff we have in vancouver
cease: yes indeed, yes indeed
Principalpoop: bogart Principalpoop: i see traces of a new wave trying to form
Principalpoop: voices here and there, speaking to a better way and better day, like the hippies did
cease: in the fear and loathing in las vegas sense, poop?
Principalpoop: that would be fun to see again
cease: some of us are still alive enough to enjoy it, poop
Principalpoop: a hard wall with the economics and terror threat stuff, but that just sets the frame for a bigger wave
Dexter Fong: Been there done that smoked the spliff forgot what happened
Principalpoop: recall the cheesey joy of singing it is the dawning of the age of aquarius...
Dexter Fong: It's a big wave, but with the right equipment and a tow-in, it's rideable
cease: like a hiroshige wave?
Dexter Fong: Cowabunga! Dudes
Principalpoop: not the one that broke the nuclear plant, that was not good
Dexter Fong: Cat: No, tidal waves are different
cease: an aesthetic wave, not a destructive wave
Dexter Fong: A wave adieux to some alas
Principalpoop: wave part deux
Dexter Fong: Coming Thursdays at (

Principalpoop: the waiter had turned into a lizard, that was ok, but when he started eating the leg of the woman next to me, i panicked hehe
Dexter Fong: Cause the lady wasn't on the menu?
Principalpoop: no, it looked delicious, I wanted some
Principalpoop: the lizard in me, the cold, hungry spot deeep in my brain
Dexter Fong: Lock your jaws and start rolling
Principalpoop: near the peneal gland
cease: maybe thompson was just channeling jim morrison
cease: the lizard king, and notorious leg muncher
Dexter Fong: Tween was ina peneal camp for some semi minor offense
Principalpoop: don't go pedantic on us, sometimes a lizard waiter is just a lizard waiter hehe
Dexter Fong: And if he is, you'se in the wrong restaurant
cease: somehow jim morrison and pedantic dont belong in the same reference
Principalpoop: the coke, flowing up in a stream out the back of the convertable, OMG
Principalpoop: Fuck You God, FUCK YOU lol
Dexter Fong: Eat at lizarde's, where a leg of lamb isn't always
cease: leg of the crow
Dexter Fong: That too, and much more
Dexter Fong: in the back
Principalpoop: oh, always buy beef that has a grade, not just inspected
Dexter Fong: Staacked up and labeled
Principalpoop: i bought some cheap frozen hambugers, inedible
Principalpoop: 100% beef, from USA, Mexico, Canada, China, Brazil
Dexter Fong: Poop, easier to buy the beef and make 'em and freeze them
Dexter Fong: don' forget Arhentina, gringo
Principalpoop: yes fong, all my friends started doing that a while ago apparently
Dexter Fong: And they didn't tell you...humph! some friends
Principalpoop: even sent me youtube clips with alton and good eats
Dexter Fong: There you go!
Principalpoop: i had always bought graded food without thinking of it
Dexter Fong: He's a little too, but the advice etc is good
Principalpoop: budget is getting tighter
Dexter Fong: Amen brother
Principalpoop: yes, he can be a bit much, sometimes, but other times that same thing is good
Dexter Fong: Why I can only have the gardener once a week, and I don't even have any property
Principalpoop: are they an au pair?
Dexter Fong: No, just the right one is all
Principalpoop: of course, the right one for the right nipple
Principalpoop: and circle closed, done, complete Dexter Fong: Exacto
Dexter Fong: and one nipple to bind them all

Dexter Fong: Bon' appetivo
Principalpoop: the bus, ||||||||| At 11:56 PM, cease runs out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
||||||||| Principalpoop leaves at 11:56 PM, singing "Oh, I'm just a little fishy, floating in the sea, and there ain't no hook that's smart enough to catch the likes of me..."
Dexter Fong: bang bang, like they rehoised it
Dexter Fong: chiao youse guys
||||||||| Catherwood walks in wearing his pyjamas, yawns, and mumbles "It's midnight here in New York city"...then he falls over and starts snoring loudly..
||||||||| It's 12:10 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Dexter Fong - dead from the common cold
