Matt1: Hello Rush!

Rush: good evening, matt!

Rush: ow are you doing tonight?

Matt1: Did you get my email?

Rush: I haven’t checked it today.

Rush: Sorry!

Rush: Should I take a look?

Matt1: Thought you may have wanted to clear our the chat room…..look above

Rush: OH…

Rush: Yes…I saw thaty.

Rush: I tried to find a way to get rid of that…

Rush: No luck.

Rush: So…I sent us down pretty far so it will not show.

Matt1: Oh, wasn’t sure when you saved the chat, you were able to delete

Rush: That came on long after I copied the chat.

Matt1: As the Mod here, can you block that person?

Rush: Obviously amn outgrowth of all the hate in the streets currently.

Matt1: Sadly, yes

Rush: I looked at users to do that, but that person just made that “name” on the spot. Not the name of a user.

Matt1: Ah, amazing how these people find our room at times

Rush: So…no one should be able to see that tonight.

Matt1: Any way….Hope you had a good week?

Rush: Yes. As a Chatovod room, it is open to anyone, sadly.

Rush: As I always say…cannot complain!

Rush: Our family is more than ready to escape this forced confinement.

Rush: In fact, we will be driving out to Iowa…leaving very early Sunday.

Matt1: Another week here…..Even with us in open phase, wife will be working from home until at least Sept 

Rush: This is all so crazy…IMHO.

Matt1: How nice!

Rush: Yes.

Matt1: How long?

Rush: In fact, I was going to ask you if you can take the reins next Monday night?

Rush: nearly two weeks.

Matt1: I should be around, so no problem!

Rush: We will be away for two Mondays.

Matt1: How long is that drive?

Rush: I just might be able to stop in on those.

Rush: about 30 total hours of driving.

Matt1: The show MUST go on!

Rush: 1900-plus miles.

Matt1: Ouch

Rush: We plan to make it out in three days.

Rush: So, you are “go” to officiate?

Matt1: No broken bones this trip, Ok?

Rush: We will be as careful as possible!

Rush: 🙂

Matt1: I’ll be here to get us rolling both weeks, so don’t worry.

Rush: Next week our movie is: “Phantom of Chinatown” with Keye Luke for his birthday.

Mike n Rachel in DC: *bzzzt*

Rush: Willie is smrter than he seems!

Phil & Mrs Phiil: Nobody is going to notice those cables.

tenman: Which is the other with a rainstorm?

Matt1: Looks safe

Phil & Mrs Phiil: That’s where I’d want to be

Mike n Rachel in DC: Very elegant cigarette holder. *cough*

Nothere: What Chan film without rain would you put it in? A storm during one of the séances in Secret would work.

Rush: (cough…)

Rush: Yes.

fredsmom: No surgical nurse should be without one Mike and Rachael

Louise: Why is the top of his head bandaged?

Nothere: Ah you would ask. ‘m drawing a blank. Rush can you assist us?

Phil & Mrs Phiil: Hey look, it’s a pygmy arra!

Rush: Must have done some “fine tuning” on the top of McBirney’s head!

Louise: Brain transplant!

Rush: 🙂

Nothere: From an Abby…uhm I forget the last name.

Rush: I DID watch “The Bride of Frankenstein” this weekend!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Gotta change the scalp-prints, Louise. 

Cdirus: So why does the watchman need a clock around his neck?

Mike n Rachel in DC: Abby somebody….

Matt1: lol

Cdirus: abby normal

Nothere: To know when to check each of the three rooms in the museum.

Rush: AH! Willie Fern was just ahead of his “time.”

fredsmom: That’s how they kept track of their rounds

Cdirus: Looks like a watch would work

Rush: Seems that that became a fashon accessorie some decades later with a certain performer!

Rush: (accessory)

Phil & Mrs Phiil: Flava Flav!

Rush: Indeed!

Rush: 🙂

Rush: The head on the shelf…

Rush: (Knock..knock…)

Rush: (Knock..knock…)

tenman: Jimmy isn’t very quiet. Well at least he’s a good cook!

Cdirus: The Sphinx

Rush: Under those bandages he’s holding back a scream of pain!

Rush: Yes. same one as seen in “Treasure island”?

Rush: A sweaty headsman figure.

Phil & Mrs Phiil: Rush I pointed out the Pygmy Arra statue that’s in this museum.

Rush: Yes!

Phil & Mrs Phiil: Maybe the same one as TI?

Louise: He like criminals that torture women

Rush: The Dyak Tribesman!

Phil & Mrs Phiil: Excuse me while I suck my finger.

Phil & Mrs Phiil: Inconspicuously of course.

Rush: 🙂

Nothere: It’s call a business. He wants to shock people. Criminals who spray graffiti just don’t draw the crowds.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Pygmy arra

tenman: BRB. Time for a glass of bourbon

hounder: …

Mike n Rachel in DC: Is everyone ready?

Phil & Mrs Phiil: I just got a glass of diet Pepsi

Mike n Rachel in DC: I was BORN ready

Nothere: If this is a crime museum why does he have rare native blowguns. Crème you have no idea how to run a museum.

Rush: 🙂

Rush: Agreed, NT!

Cdirus: Glass of Mexican Coke

Phil & Mrs Phiil: A little of this, a little of that…

tenman: I thought Mexican coke only came in a powdered form

Rush: Ouch!

Louise: sore finger

Nothere: Charile Chan Cop Doctor Radio star.

Mike n Rachel in DC: *Mexican coke*

Louise: She so Aryan!

tenman: Uh-oh. Von Braun next to die!

Phil & Mrs Phiil: I always have found the dialog in this plot to be particularly difficult to follow.

Rush: I was just thinking. Didn’t Bogart in “Dark Passage” have his head fully bandaged after his plastic surgery…sort of like McBirney?

Nothere: Well this was made in 1940 Louise. Bring her to the interrogation room. I’ll probe her.

Cdirus: Nope, Coca Cola with sugar instead of High Fructose corn syrup.

fredsmom: Yes Rush

Mike n Rachel in DC: Yes. Rush. We don’t see “Bogart” until the bandages come off.

Rush: Broadcast time…

fredsmom: Lauren Bacall had to help him smoke through it

Rush: Right!

Mike n Rachel in DC: “Truth speak from any chair”

Cdirus: I usually drink Pepsi made with sugar, but that’s only in the tiny cans now.

hounder: truth speak from any chair

Mike n Rachel in DC: True, FM. He was all about the cigarette holder.

Nothere: Happy birthday Mrs. Phil.

Rush: And, on live radio!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Every poison dart seek its own bird

Rush: We saw “Mrs. Rocke” in another Chan movie.

tenman: Say, pop dontcha feel well?? Jimmy’s such an idiot!!

Nothere: Forsooth Angel thou doest defame yon speech as archaic?

angel: Louise, it was a switchboard issue. All corrected after the Rotary Club stopped charging people for the light-up dials.

Nothere: Yeah. Nothing to see here. Just a storeroom. Hidden behind a secret door. Like you do.

fredsmom: death masks on wall

Rush: Yes, FM.

angel: Would Dr.C. be called a paperdollsmith?

Rush: Dr. Cream’s “failures.”

Nothere: Does seeing someone do something once really make it a signature?

angel: While these two chat, i’ll shout a quick greeting to TENMAN.

tenman: Hey!

Rush: Good question, NT.

Rush: maybe the word on the “signature” has gotten out.

Louise: Tonga

Rush: Dyak headhunters – The Dyak, once a fierce and feared people, were among the original inhabitants of the island of Borneo, located in the western Pacific north of Java. In 1927, forensic doctor William Krohn set off for Borneo to collect ethnological specimens for Chicago’s Field Museum, living among the Dyak people, learning everything he could about their beliefs and way of life. The results of his work were published in his book Among the Dyak Headhunters.
Charlie Chan: “Tonga poison used by Dyak headhunters in Borneo.”

Mike n Rachel in DC: Tonga. Bowanite. Tetragene.

angel: Notty, you are a true purist. You will be expelled from the Appreciation Zoziety.

Rush: Yes, M/R.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hard to keep track of the poisons.

Nothere: At lest their not headhunters.

angel: Rush, you Dyakite you!

Rush: 🙂

Rush: Willie watches…

angel: After the cleanup they can reopen as The Whacks Museum.

hounder: ok pop

Rush: 🙂

Rush: Ask Willie for the key!

angel: “I don’t know, you idiot”, or “I don’t know you, idiot”?

Mike n Rachel in DC: Dr. Krohn published his fascinating findings, shortly before he was eaten by the Dyaks.

Nothere: People. They know yor their stop lurking in the shadows. Your already suspects, you gdon’t have to act suspicious.

Rush: AH! The old change of comma!

Rush: Yes, Angel!

angel: MnR: Those Dyaks eat anything. I have some cans of Bon Vivant Vichyssoise i’m going to let them have if they come our way.

Nothere: Well Mike and or Racheal. He did ask what was in the pot/

Rush: “Yes, you’re right! I actually said, ‘You smell like a HOSS.'”

angel: “Mrs.Rock” speaks about as much as Veronica Lake in “This Gun For Hire”.

Rush: Second “lights out.”

Louise: Flashlight please

Len Freeman: next killing

angel: NOW, what’s in the pot is methamphetamine; that’s progress!

Nothere: There goes the lights again. Hey Dr. Crème how about you don’t pay for cheessmen and fix the wiring?

Matt1: Chas!
