<TinyDrTim> Already listened this afternoon. I laughed my ass off!
<kend^> lew, did you know you can ping everyone at one time by typing

<DocTech> i took my vinyl copy of cgg and cleaned it up
<DocTech> digitally
<TinyDrTim> How come I had to pay for both of them, Doc?
<DocTech> minimal surface noise still remains
<DocTech> tdt you paid for the myx cd, you got the cgg cd for free
<kend^> like general art fleming?
<LgrAxhandl> what is CGG ?
<kend^> pray tell, to the uninitiated, what is a childs garden of grass?
<DocTech> childs garden of grass

*** HNN (h...@ has joined #firesign
<doctim> hello
<HNN> Hmmm....
<DocTech> anyway cgg has always been one'a'my fave records, so when i
decided to see how good a job i could do archiving some rare
vinyl with the audio tools i've got now, cgg was my first choice
<HNN> There's two of no one but me!
<TinyDrTim> They are messing with our minds again. There are two Carls
<DocTech> my copy is already in good shape as it is, but with the tools
i've got i was able to eliminate over 90% of the surface noise.
*** HNN is now known as HasNoName
<HasNoName> Dang drat line gremlins...
<DocTech> and now i can listen to my fave album via the miracle of cd!
<HasNoName> How was everyone's New Year? I worked hard to ignore it,
watching a movie on tape from before midnight to sometime after...
<LgrAxhandl> so Doc, you created a mirro-clone cd?
<TinyDrTim> Everyone MUST buy Doc's CD - Kewel music and a comedy bonus!
<DocTech> hnn: very quiet at this end... working on cgg
<doctim> luger, did you get the correted mao line?
* HasNoName has a CD burned now, or access to one, but no way yet to dub
from audio tapes...
<LgrAxhandl> aye verily Cat-daddy
<HasNoName> er, burner
<DocTech> lgr: yes, a cd of a vinyl record that sounds better than the
vinyl itself
<doctim> hopefully you got it in time before you recorded your mao?
<LgrAxhandl> and Doc, what is the name of this venerable cdelight?
<HasNoName> It's sort of like when you scan in a color photo, and you
see things in the scan you didn't notice in the photo itself.
<TinyDrTim> Carl, did you read the New Year's log?
<DocTech> lgr: a child's garden of grass
<kend^> lew, chanserv is up, and it doesn't recognize us at all, i
again, and went to web page to make sure i was using command correctly
<HasNoName> I saw it, but haven't had a lot of time to persue Usenet
greatly as of late.
<doctim> i have a cassette of that
<DocTech> classic head comedy from the 1971.
*** Elayne_Riggs ( has joined #firesign
<HasNoName> Hello...
<Elayne_Riggs> Hi Carl!

<LgrAxhandl> HIYO Elayne
<Elayne_Riggs> Hi Lgr!
<doctim> i have the garden, even have the book.
<DocTech> we should call hnn c@rl to show he's "down with the internet"
<DocTech> i have the book too.
<HasNoName> cUrl Stone?
<TinyDrTim> Hi C@rl
<HasNoName> or cURL?
<DocTech> anyway cease: i've created a clean cd of my vinyl copy of cgg
<DocTech> hnn: lol
* HasNoName now knows shame.
<kend^> what if c@rl married someone on the cable news network, would
be ms. hnn-cnn?
* DocTech thinks hnn must be cURLing in shame
<TinyDrTim> kend^ - lol
<DocTech> k: lol
<HasNoName> I've been told they don't know how much more fulltime work
they'll have for my at my current position, so I'm wondering what to do
<kend^> good, my sense of humor survived the pre-millenium blowout here
<DocTech> hnn: oh man... that sucks!
<kend^> terrible news
<Elayne_Riggs> Tom, has your schedule freed up any?
<TinyDrTim> Cat - got my tapes this week. I owe you!
<LgrAxhandl> sorry to hear that HNN
<DocTech> i have a hard time believing there isn't a demand for
web people with your perl skills, h.
<Elayne_Riggs> Good luck, Carl. I'm really hoping I don't find myself
the same position soon.
<doctim> hope you enjoy them, tiny
<TinyDrTim> Have already started, Cat
<Elayne_Riggs> I've gone offline totally at work in terms of Panix
I'm hoping breaking my Internet addiction helps me concentrate more.
<DocTech> e: hardly. gotta buckle down on this weekend and into
next week.
<HasNoName> This, and a lot of other things, have kept me coming and
(mostly) worried, E?
*** bfwestley ( has joined #firesign
<DocTech> looking like the earliest i can pull it off is week after
<TinyDrTim> Carl, if you can perl, can you also knit?
<kend^> doctech: i just found those tapes we discussed this afternoon,
haven't had time to listen yet, don't know if they are usuable yet
<Elayne_Riggs> Gotcha, Tom. Been busy on our end too, between my board
directors duties and immigration stuff.
<LgrAxhandl> Hi Bri
<Elayne_Riggs> Yeah, Carl, things look shaky again on my end, and I
deal well with pressure.
<DocTech> i'm taking the train on a regular basis now, e, so i have to
plot out the days i drive inn.
<Elayne_Riggs> Hi Brian!
<bfwestley> hard to get connected 2nite
<DocTech> hi b
<TinyDrTim> Hey Bri!
<Elayne_Riggs> No problem, Tom, we were just wondering.
<doctim> hi bf
<bfwestley> yadda yadda yadda
<DocTech> hey bfw: offer to all ng and irc participants, january only:
my new MYX cd and get child's garden of grass on cd as a bonus
<DocTech> it's a clean cd copy of my vinyl master
<Elayne_Riggs> I'm in, Tom. Or is this the one you FedEx'ed?
<HasNoName> A copy of Doc's vinyl master...if only Senator Exxon knew...
<DocTech> no actually e, you've already got the MYX cd. so does cease.
i'll sell you cgg for five bucks.
<Elayne_Riggs> It's a deal, Tom. I'll pay you when I see you next. ;)
<DocTech> e: aok
<Elayne_Riggs> I'm going back in the warm room now. Take care, all!
*** Elayne_Riggs has quit IRC (Quit: Leaving)
<HasNoName> By...oh, she left quick...
<TinyDrTim> She comes in, she must go out
<HasNoName> That's far out, TDT!
<LgrAxhandl> does Elayne keep her computer in the refrigerator?
* DocTech thinks cgg is one of the funniest records made, peter bergman
does 'the dirty dog' on it, a great song...
<bfwestley> what is MYX?
<TinyDrTim> Lgr - lol
<kend^> way to go, ax
<HasNoName> This'll probably sound a lot better than my 50 cent copy
the Flea Market...
<DocTech> lgr: actually, e has her pc set up in the "front" living room,
which she does not heat often to keep costs down
<LgrAxhandl> I must have this rarity for my very own collection
<DocTech> lgr: you won't regret it.
<HasNoName> Doc, is the ordering info, etc, on your page?
<LgrAxhandl> Wow. that's FRUGAL living conditions
<DocTech> hnn: yes indeedy -
<TinyDrTim> You must, Bill. I'm still laughing and I heard it 4 hours
ago. And Doc's CD is, how do I say it - Mystical
<DocTech> it was great fun going through the sound files and etching out
the clicks and pops...
<TinyDrTim> Did you play all the instruments Doc - ala John Fogarty?
<DocTech> ...and there's this great noise reduction algorithm in cool
'96 that removes most of the rest of the continuqus surface noise.
<doctim> yes, mystical is a pretty good description
<kend^> remember their hit, "i see a bathroom on the right"
<DocTech> tdt: yes, the MYX cd is an archive of spacemusic I've recorded
over the past 15 years.
<LgrAxhandl> the excerpt i heard of sleeper4 made me feel like galloping
on a cosmic pony across the crab nebula lassoing stray neutrinos
<TinyDrTim> Yeh, Drowned mary!
<bfwestley> and the girl with colitis goes by
<DocTech> lgr: that's just what it sounds like on the cd, only you gallp
<DocTech> gallop
<DocTech> bfw: lol
<TinyDrTim> Sleeper Four is my fav too
<DocTech> URL of a site that collects people's misheard pop lyrics
<LgrAxhandl> Doc, do you take cash?
<TinyDrTim> I'm listening as I type, and I'm getting way out there
<bfwestley> yeah, I've heard of
<DocTech> lgr: yes, but i wouldn't advise sending cash through the mail
can you buy a money order?
<DocTech> 'scuse me while i kiss this guy
<HasNoName> I'll have to see if anyone else heard "I just smelled a
that I could go for" in "Pinhead"...
<LgrAxhandl> surely
<LgrAxhandl> lol Doc
<doctim> zippy?
<HasNoName> no, ramones.
<DocTech> hnn: what a poetic lyric.
<DocTech> i never knew the ramones could be so.. so...
<DocTech> heart-rending!
<TinyDrTim> and nasal
* DocTech wants to be sedated
<kend^> looks like it might be a neat site, but i just tried it, got a
"400" error, none of the links work
<DocTech> tdt: lol!
<bfwestley> over here is the heart-rendering plant
<TinyDrTim> My what pretty flowers it has
<HasNoName> bfw: is it called "Audrey"?
<LgrAxhandl> have some more Drambulie Doc
<bfwestley> not a bit of sentimentality is wasted

<DocTechnical> hnn: lol nice chinatown ref!
<kend^> i might just have to start building bombs, and set them outside
internet offices, call me the duabomber
<TinyDrTim> and the zero's?
<kend^> 0's are in the public domain, lew
<DocTechnical> at the right time, and at the right place, an isp is
capable of - anything -
<kend^> after all, they are nothing, and you can't own nothing
* TinyDrTim feels REAL stupid now
<doctim> and one is nothing
<kend^> god, what if someone reads that, does it, and blames me?
<TinyDrTim> I own nothing!
<LgrAxhandl> those isps got more nothing than anyone
<kend^> vow of poverty, lew? at least you didn't do that "chastity"
i hope
<TinyDrTim> I'll edit it out, kend^
<kend^> she IS a lesbian, you know
<DocTechnical> tdt: as opposed to feeling "fake" stupid?
<LgrAxhandl> ahh, deconstructed history
<bfwestley> Tonight on the national news, one report on hog prices said
the buying price for a hog fell 100%, to $40 - what idiots.
<TinyDrTim> lol all you guys!
<LgrAxhandl> no hog is worth that
<TinyDrTim> You talking about my Harley?

<DocTechnical> yo bb
* HasNoName hasn't watched IFC in ages because he's trying to catch up
his tape watching...
<Bunnyboy> In just a few more weeks, it's the Year of the Hare. You have
been warned!
<kend^> that must mean, klok, that you read the logs?
<DocTechnical> kwd (my abbrv for klokwkdog): you read the logs?
<kend^> and a happy right back atcha
<klokwkdog> someone has to
<DocTechnical> i'm always falling off them
<HasNoName> I own a copy of it, but wanted a capture of something for a
page I'm working on.
<kend^> Bb: what animal is 1952?
<DocTechnical> hare of the dog... ?
<klokwkdog> u get wet enough, u get the hang of it, log rolling, etc
<Bunnyboy> thanx Lew
<klokwkdog> where dog?
<doctim> leg of the crow?
<Bunnyboy> HNN: I have about 10 years of tape left to watch
<DocTechnical> i weas born in the year of the 3-toed sloth
<HasNoName> Ihave a vid. cap card, but can't get it to came
a Packard Bell 486-SX, so who knows...
<Bunnyboy> kwd: Toto
<Bunnyboy> oops
<Bunnyboy> I mean,
<Bunnyboy> kwd = Toto
<DocTechnical> peg of my heart
<klokwkdog> so what year does that make Dorothy?
<Bunnyboy> kend^: I gots no idea. But the first 33 cent stamp is Year of
the Hare.
<kend^> Bb: is that continuous or scheduling 1 tape/day?
<DocTechnical> ooh, those old p.b. machines tended to be a bit - shall
say - proprietary?
<klokwkdog> and just a little bit DOA
<Bunnyboy> kend^: It's backlog from a decade of taping
<kend^> i have seen it enough in chinese restaurants on the placemats, i
should know
<DocTechnical> wabbit twacks! huhuhuhuhuhuhuhhhh....
<klokwkdog> and two from Column B
<kend^> i'm probably of the "year of la cucaracha"
<TinyDrTim> Hey Cat - I read in last months Playboy that Jack Kerouac's
estate at his death was valued at $91
<kend^> Bb-you must have some shelving system then!
<DocTechnical> no tickee no washee
<DocTechnical> and please hold the m.s.g.
<TinyDrTim> Now it's worth $10 million!
<doctim> is that so? i know he was poor
<kend^> my god, there is a chinese rest. here, they have a cook that
absolutely edible!
<doctim> i know the executors are feuding
<klokwkdog> have you visited the estate in Lowell? not exactly
<Bunnyboy> kend^: I wish! That, and my LP collection
<kend^> i would take two of them any day, die happy
<doctim> never been to lowell
<DocTechnical> k: is that what they mean by the "chef's special?"
<LgrAxhandl> If only I could have died at birth and lived ! I could be
rich now.
<klokwkdog> jack left real quick
<kend^> lowell, mass?
<klokwkdog> yep
<DocTechnical> pardon me while i die laughing....
<LgrAxhandl> I been to Lowell, oh yeah
<kend^> haven't made it that far east in my peregrinations yet
<DocTechnical> i've been through lowell, never stopped there.
<klokwkdog> a good idea
<doctim> i think the closest i'll ever get to lowell is reading
<DocTechnical> hey tdt, can you op kwd:
<klokwkdog> which is like learning about Richmond from Tom Robbins
<DocTechnical> kwd: lol
<doctim> richmond? he always writes about seattle
<klokwkdog> you understand, then
<doctim> i thought there might be a tom robbins book i missed
* kend^ lisps: i'll take my romance novels any day over that TRASH
<LgrAxhandl> Doc: I'll put the DAT in the mail tomorrow along w/ a money
order..for what amount ?
<Bunnyboy> So, who else is in the Comedy Grammy horse race besides
Firesign? Are Foxworthy and Seinfeld REALLY nominees?
<TinyDrTim> Even Seattlites get the blues
<DocTechnical> i would guess that the lowell kerouac writes of has long
since vanished
<doctim> luger, is that the dat of you red shifting?
<DocTechnical> lgr: twelve bucks - gets you MYX & CGG
<HasNoName> Just like the FST's Los Angeles, as gone as Raymond
<TinyDrTim> steve martin and Brooks/Reiner
<klokwkdog> actually, lowell is kind of marooned there...
<doctim> that's a good point, has
<LgrAxhandl> yes indeed cat the very shift itself
<TinyDrTim> That message was for you Bb
<DocTechnical> you'll have a good laugh, and drift off into space. play
'em at the same time and do both!
<LgrAxhandl> Doc: kewl
<bfwestley> bb: yes, plus Brooks & Reiner for 2000 year old man, and
<doctim> looking forward to hearing it. also the firesign doing their
lines. pp asked me if i'd heard them yet, but la producer peter
has never even mentioned getting the DAT
<HasNoName> Steve Martin has a new album out?
<kend^> 2000 year old man? isn't that about that old? why nominated now?
<LgrAxhandl> Cat, BTW thanks for your email and the update
<bfwestley> it's a new one - 2000 year old man in the year 2000 - also
from Rhino
<Bunnyboy> kend^: Is new Brooks/Reiner album
<TinyDrTim> 2000 year old man in year 2000
<HasNoName> The 2000 Pound Old Man...
<doctim> what a tedious idea
<kend^> ok, didn't realize they were still producing those, will have to
get that one
<DocTechnical> my take on grammy shot: all nominees are veterans, but
has created something as aurally clever - and never really gotten their
due - as fst
<Bunnyboy> "My chest....can't breath..."
<Bunnyboy> "Oh my GOD! This man is DYING!!!"
<DocTechnical> actually, both the fst and brooks/reiner albums are on
rhino label.
<kend^> i don't stay up on awards shows, when is it?
<DocTechnical> rhino must really be happy about that.
<TinyDrTim> Pure Drivel was a very funny book, if you like Steve Martin,
which I do!
<DocTechnical> awards show scheduled for 2/24/1999
<bfwestley> I've got $5 riding on Firesign with my son - he says
<LgrAxhandl> I think I've got a 'Hour of Slack' from the church of the
subgenius around here somewheres
<doctim> i suspect the grammys are just as much bullshit as emmys or
<bfwestley> Grammys are feb 24, right? But some are announced a day
<DocTechnical> tdt: but what does the album sound like? or is it just
that, a "talking book" thing?
<HasNoName> I wouldn't be shocked if Seinfeld won...disapointed, but not
<bfwestley> Do they do the comedy award on the regular show?
<Bunnyboy> I neglected to take the 2000 Year Old Man's advice on
longevity: "Walk, never run for a bus. There'll always be another one".
<kend^> politics and vote buying in all of them
<TinyDrTim> I haven't heard the album, Doc - Just read the book . . .
<DocTechnical> bfw: yeah, actually we should see if they'll be
that part of the thing
<HasNoName> Actually, the Grammys are more BS than the Oscars, but
probably the same level as the Emmys
<Bunnyboy> 2 days before the end of 1998, I ran to catch my morning
commute, fell and racked my ribs on the asphalt.
<doctim> ouch
<Bunnyboy> indeed
