An extra week before dead air..yah!
secondies … and I got nothin.
Hadn’t realised Fictionwise were being shut down:
Hi, Beautiful Bunny!
*hugs to my goddess*
Secret Deadpan Santa gift is officially en route to its new owner.
*rubs hands together maniacally because I know you all think I’ve vanished into the otherworld (aka non-deadpan)*
I’m still here.
Good, bad, or otherwise…
I’m awaiting the email to inform when the DPSS gift is on it’s way.
I apologise in advance for the failure of my imagination.
Thankfully It’s Tuesdays Show
I actually was ok with the Battleship movie.
I also enjoy Battleship as well as John Carter.
Yes, we liked John Carter too.
Agree on John Carter.
John Carter was fine. Battleship was really not.
Thanks everyone for the PAS support. Looks like we’re gearing up for another long, drawn-out exercise.
Support to everyone with job stress today.
I sent my Secret Santa Gift this morning too. Unfortunately, it didn’t give me the choice to say it was a gift so, if something shows up from me, it probably is a SS gift as we are not giving out gifts to anybody else this year (except immediate family)
*grumble, grumble – stupid job*
But! Christmas cards are still going out. I’m hoping to have them done this weekend but my in-laws are coming in to town tomorrow so we’ll see how time goes.
I stopped doing Christmas cards. Sometimes I do Christmas emails, but with all the life changes – it’s all so confusing and difficult. I’ll just send telepathic messages again this year.
Amazing, that one came through fine.
I bought a package of 100 Christmas postage stamps on Sunday. I’m looking forward to sending out my Christmas cards soon. :happy:
I think I know what hubby will want for Christmas
One contestant on one of the dare shows from a few years ago, claimed he could name any ST:TOS episode if he was told the star date mentioned in that episode.
…and bloody hell he could.
We were able to shut off enough of our brains to be able to appreciate Battleship for what it was as well. I’ve definitely got to give it props for the visuals and especially the audio. If pressed I’ll confess that I thought it worked better than the transformers movies.

Seriously, what is up with my gravatar??
Maybe it thinks you’re in stealth mode :ninja:
Did you go on to the gravatar website? Maybe try uploading a different pic?
I did that a few times. argh.
Have you logged into the site to make sure your account hasn’t been hijacked?
I’ve logged in and I’ve changed my picture twice – how would I know about the hijacking?
Right Pan, off to the cinema to see the following:
I wouldn’t mind seeing that one.
I’m thinking of taking myself to see that silly Twilight movie today after work.
I wouldn’t mind not seeing that one.
I just wanna see the end… I feel incomplete.
My sister is trying to drag me to see that movie..I’m resisting.
There, bed in guest room is stripped and sheets are in the washing machine. Just have to clean the guest bathroom and then I’ll be ready for my in-laws tomorrow.
Hugs to EssBee today!!
Thanks! I’m working on my zen.
I’ll send you some of mine. I’m tired, but kinda full of the happy today 🙂
*hugs for Jack*
PAS sound really crappy.
*hugs all around*

Stevie Nicks, I still love you, but you be crazy now.
LIES… sweet little lies.
I should’ve just stopped reading this article after it said, “Fleetwood Mac will be on tour…”
The rest is just ‘crazy’ talk.
If you’re ever in Phoenix in December, this is a must!
Phase 1 of DPSS gift-giving is complete.
DPSS duty done!
made me smile
How was the movie, Van?
Not too bad, probably best to wait till it hits Netflix.
Must get gas and wash my car. It’s going to be the taxi.
CD: Streaming the unshow to my TV via iTunes and XBMC on my Raspberry Pi.
Definition of overkill
CDIMM: Streaming the unshow to my TV via my XBOX 360, in the new XBOX internet browser.
CDIMM: pretending to understand what you beautiful mens are talking about. And hearing it in Van’s accent.
Well you take one elastic band and a tuning fork…
If you enjoy the parodies on Twitter… then this new account should be great fun
Ski Safari goes free on the AppStore:
I kicked my “(short term)To Do” list’s butt today.
7 seperate items, 46 miles of driving, 4 hours of my life.
See, Calgarians can write bad sex scenes too
A very beautiful bouquet of flowers just arrived. My boss sent it to me as a going away thank you. I’m a little choked up.
Well…. it is a nice gesture. I’m sure he’ll write you a good letter of recommendation.
… if we call off the hit.
This was pretty poignant. I think a bunch of folks here would greatly enjoy it.
I sure did :o)
Today will be brought to you by a dodgy knee and lost gloves.
… and by the number 3 .
…and also, the letter f.
I haven’t read any of these, but some of them are the kind of stuff I should go out and find right away.
Not necessarily the Heinlein book. I’ve read enough of his later works and have grown weary of the style.
I disagree. I like almost all of his work.
The Vernor Vinge book is probably my favorite on that list.
I’ve read two of these.
I found Friday to be rather disappointing (as I’ve found much of Heinleins later work).
Simak’s work I’ve really enjoyed, but the book on the list is one I haven’t read.
Across Realtime is a bit strange for me, the first part is great but the second part just bored the hell out of me, was a real struggle to finish.
Originally they were published as two separate books. Then they got combined with a joining short story about 10 years ago.
Today is my last day as a working stiff. Sometime this afternoon I’ll go downtown to hand in my computer and keys
Enjoy your freedom! 🙂
I hope all goes well without having to go to work. Does that mean we’ll more or less of you around the deadpan?
This week anyway it will mean less as my in-laws are coming in today. I had actually booked Thursday, Friday & Monday off which is why today is my last day instead of Friday which is cut-off.
After next week *shrug* You may see more of me as I’ll have more free time. In the new year the job hunt will begin in ernest so we will have to see.
I hope all goes well and this doesn’t put you in a hurt or a hurry to find work. Being jobless, thankfully, is something I’ve only ever experienced once in my life. *knock on wood*
The wife on the other hand…well, that’s a different story. Thankfully I make enough so her income is supplemental.
I’ve never been jobless for more than a few days. John and I have talked a fair amount. we are in a similar situation in that hubby makes enough for us to survive on so my income was always that nice icing on the cake. Which is a good thing since I’m not likely to find something as good as I had and will most likely have to go to something part time.
Best wishes and good luck for the future, Bunny. We’re all here to cheer you on. 🙂
At last the tale from the Rancor’s perspective.
I think my work computer is trying to tell me something, I’ve had to reboot it twice already.
Ok, make that three times
I don’t play much Angry Birds but this is interesting. Play the video. It’s amazing how little variation in gestures there is.
Hey, Pan. I’m looking for tech reviews and thoughts.
My sister is getting me a Kindle for Christmas. She asked me whether I would prefer a Kindle Fire, or the “paper light” model.
My #1 priority for this device is that I want to be able to read books outside in bright sunlight.
It depends upon what you want to do with it Amy. If you just want to read, the paper light is fine. The Fire is actually a tablet-lite so you can do many other things with it including netflix and Amazon video. *shrug*
Thanks, Bunny! Do you have either one?
So I take it the OS and interface on the paper light version are similar to the Kindle app for third-party devices, with no non-reading software tools, correct?
I will make a stop at Best Buy today and see if they have any display models I can play with.
Will you be distracted from reading by the other things the kindle fire offers?
Heard an interview with Nick Hornby in which he said that the dramatic decline in e-books sales seems to correlate with the release of the Kindle Fire. When given the choice of reading vs. playing a video game or watching a movie … people defaulted to the games and videos.
I won’t lie, when I first got my tablet I wanted to read and surf the web with it. I wound up on youtube and playing angry birds a lot.
I’ve uninstalled the games and I still youtube from time to time, but I now read comics, web comics, books, and magazines more than anything else
and visit the deadpan 🙂
Also, a friend of mine got a Nook for his wife so she could read. She got a netflicks account and it’s her movie device LOL.
So, yes, make sure you know what you want out of your device. Personally if you want a reading device, get a reading device. If you want a tablet, don’t get a nook or fire. Get a real tablet. Just my two cents.
If you want to read in bright sunlight, then get the generic Kindle. Otherwise the color tablets are like having a giant smartphone, which can be a good thing.
My husband an I used to have Sony readers but have switched to iPads and love them. With the kindle and ireader app everything is covered as far as that goes too. We have stopped buying physical books & magazines and strictly use the ipads. We gave the readers to our kids.
Still running the original iPad, do very little reading on the Pad though, mainly web browsing and watching videos.
The ripoff prices of many ebooks may be more of a factor in declining sales than having a device that can play videos and games.
Ha! They’ve already taken away my bank access. Since 90% of what I do requires me to look at various bank accounts I have no idea how they expect me to actually do any work today.
I guess your work AND computer are trying to tell you to relax today
Just heard back from my boss, she said to take the day off since I can’t do anything anyway. I’ll leave in about an hour to hand in my keys and computer.
My boss is crying when I talked to her. It’s very strange. I’ve never had anyone so broken up at work over me before. Unfortunately, she had no say in my leaving or I’d still be there.
It’s always nice to know that people care about you at a company, even when you are leaving.
Ugh already on this morning. Right now we turn it around.
I’m headed downtown.
Thinking about ya, Bunny.
If you took “Suicidal Tendencies” and fronted them with this woman: http://tinyurl.com/b5j5vuo
You’d get “In This Moment”.
The “Take 5” guy died today. RIP Dave Brubeck.
Up there with Green Onions on my list of fav instrumentals.
I’m seriously bummed by his passing.
I’ve always really dug his stuff and over idealized what the club “scene” must have been like when he burst upon it.
A bit before my time.
Oh, Van……… 🙂
Another brutal day here, but I’m cautiously optimistic about the progress we (seemed to have) made.
I hope you’re doing ok today, Bunny. And everyone else too, of course!
Good tea-time, :mush:

My Dad’s in hospital with a heart Arrhythmia.
Oh J0e *hugs*
Real sorry, man. Positiveness your way
That does indeed suck. Best wishes for him and your family.
Sorry to hear it, J0e. 🙁 Best wishes for him.

Time to put this day to bed. Bring it on, Thursday.
Crap joke for the day:
To a woman, everything is ‘cute’ when it is small. Except for cocks and bank balances.
Renew ST flick is looking good:
Got to sleep in this morning. Hubby is at work and the in-laws are still in bed. I think I’ll take advantage of this brief quiet time to get lost in a book
CR: Rules of Ascension – David B. Coe
Looks like this Christmas is going to be an episode of “High Definition 2: The Embiggening”.
Since there can only be one, widescreen, I wonder if Jack would like a 55″ DLP?
At this rate he’ll need one of those fancy electronic monks to watch all the TV he never gets round to watching.
Or maybe a DVR that beams television episodes into his dreams while he is sleeping.
I want a DVR that beams JACK’S dreams to my TV.
Still no news on my dad.
Fingers crossed for good news jj.
*manly hugs* JOe.
As an aside, my wife had arrhythmia and after a couple of out patient surgeries and daily meds she went on to run a marathon. I can’t speak to your dad’s condition, but the state of the art in medical advances should be cause for optimism.
So some are thinking that Sherlock isn’t playing Kahn in that ST movie teaser but Kahn’s sidekick and Peter Weller (not shown in the trailer) is the actor actually playing Kahn.
So exciting either way!
Just talked to my mom.
They tried shocking my dad’s heart back into rythym but it didn’t work. He’s a big Brubeck fan as well so maybe they just don’t recognize a good 5/4 beat when they hear it. (music geek joke)
Not sure what they do next but they have a heart cath scheduled for tomorrow.
Sending good thoughts your way, J0e. *hugs*
At the mall. In-laws wanted to do some shopping so I took them here. They are running loose while I sit here and read and stuff. It’s actually quite relaxing
Later today I’m going to make the dough for gingerbread cookies. Tomorrow we’ll make that as well as decorate the tree and house. Hubby even booked the day off work so, between us, the in-laws and boo and her fiancée, I expect a full house filled wi holiday cheer tomorrow
I’m officially browsing with the new computer. 🙂
Yeah! Have you put it through any gaming tests?
No. I haven’t even installed all my usual programs yet, nor migrated iTunes. I just have the basics plus Firefox on here right now.
Now for the long process of copying 220GB+ of music from one drive to the other.
I shall be checking this out later:
Joe Hamm with an english accent…freakout city.
I have a tattoo that looks just like that (minus the hat). It was my very first tattoo 20 years ago.
I hope everyone is hanging in there through this rocky early December.
So my ex-employer Lockheed sent me a check today for some mysterious reason known only to them. I went through an emotional roller coaster that started with doubt (this looks like a check but probably isn’t), to excitement (holy crap, it really is a check) to hysterically amused and bewildered(the check was for $0.00). WTF Lockheed… WTF?
That is so insane. Talk about Evil, Inc.
Free HTDA EP download. Bottom of the page.
Oh, I already have this! Duh me…
Well, maybe you don’t.
iTunes has been successfully migrated. Yea!
Me and mine have survived another round of Evil layoffs today. Twenty two other souls weren’t so lucky. Ugh.
CW: Broncos v. Raiders.
I HAVE A GRAVATAR!!!
Yay! EssBee has a job and a gravatar!
Apparently my Gravatar is working now as well! It’s a happy Thursday.
The NHL & NHLPA get the finger.
So glad the election is over, so we can stop watching petty squabbles among the uber-wealthy.
Everyone: Thanks so much for your thoughts on tablets. I decided to go with the basic Kindle. I really do just want to read books on it. :happy:
Congrats to EssBee, and hugs and happy thoughts to Bunny and Justa J0e.
Bunny: I can’t wait until I get a day of holiday cheer. I haven’t had one yet this year. I will probably have one on the 16th and/or 17th. (I have to have cookies ready for a cookie exchange that’s happening at noon on the 18th.)
Good night, Pan.
Maki and I shared a crazy cabride with this guy in Vegas, a few years ago. It’s pretty good trailer!

This is how I spend my daily free pass to post. Sigh.
Can we pass 200 by midnight?
(And how was Seven Psychopaths, Van?)
Well worth checking out Jack, I didn’t find it that funny, but still enjoyed it.

Well, the new rig is working well, but seems to have some issues resuming from sleep mode. I guess I need to try some things tonight to see if it fixes the issue.
You mean, on top of everything else, this post is rigged ?
Only for you. 😉
At the arty cinema waiting for the following movie to begin:
That’ll be a laugh!
..and so it was, well bits of it was.
Today’s unpleasantry– scope up my nose and down my throat.
This is not a laugh. Ugh!!

Dammit, I’m getting old. Seriously this was 25 years ago?
I, for once, do not feel old. I dont remember this story at all.
I feel that way about Gary Powers.
Wow. I had completely forgotten about this until your post.
My teenage band covered a Tesla song.
Coincidentally and completely unrelated to the Oatmeal comic, I had a long discussion with my son this morning about Nikolai Tesla’s life and legacy. He’s very distraught about the raw deal that Tesla got. I tried to explain that Tesla still had a great life of working with a researching cool stuff that he loved. Forget about the government and Edison stealing his ideas; he woke up every day excited to go to the office. And even if he was unsung in his day, we now honor and revere him, with 20/20 hindsight.
Good discussion. I may have a future energy researcher on my hands.
That’s awesome. But Tesla still got a raw deal. 😉
A new variation:
That’s for DP’s comment and not Ed’s…still a long way to retirement (fingers crossed and not tempting fate and all that funk).
Get your mind around this:
There. Only six hours and 5 minutes behind. Not bad for the holiday rush season.
Sly B found this one:
I’m not really here. Jack, just a quick note to let you know I probably won’t be able to do show notes this week. It turns out my in-laws are leaving Tuesday afternoon, not Monday.
Oh and Jack, answer your email 😉
2/3 an answer is not a complete answer. Try again. 🙂
How’s that for 2/3?
I think the Mythbusters need to check this one out! And of course, they need to check out the Stork theory. The world must know how baby is formed!
Now that it what I call “committing 100%” for the joke!
(Notice the snow in the first shot.)
So, it was another night with wacky dreams…
This time, my dream was like an episode of Sons of Anarchy. My favorite parts:
1. My sister had a new baby, & we are all at a restaurant (celebrating?) and I say to her, ” I dont even know the name of your new baby girl.” … and I walk away.
2. Before we all left the house (which seemed to be located in the countryside due to the wide open land and the giant red barn on the property, my house was raided by my ‘brothers’ and two dead bodies were discovered in the bathtub.
3. After I tell my sister that I dont know her baby (or even seem to care), I leave and end up walking on the streets of Jamaica, trying to locate my parked car, and it appears it had been stolen. So I go to a nighclub and grab my gay friend, Jason. He impersonates my boyfriend, so neither of us are attacked on the mob-ridden streets (of Jamaica?) and we hunt for my car.
Still not found.
Snooze alarm goes off. . .
I now require a triple venti to make it at work this early morning
..and it’s goodbye to Patrick Moore:
Alright, we’re going to have to enforce a dress code for the next Deadpan mmmeetup.
Banning or requiring these?
“Rear snaps allow for an adjustable fit.”
That’s all I’m gonna say about that.
So, we finally made it to the end (and then the rest of the endings) of Return of the King, completing the saga just in time for The Hobbit.
In the final, final scene of the final ending, when Sam returns home and greets his daughter, his wife Rosie comes out holding the younger child, to which my daughter says: “Wow, that one has Frodo’s hair.”
Makes you wonder his REAL reason for sailing off into the West…
I know a couple of peeps who might really like this for Christmas!

And the Apple maps debacle continues:
Apple apparently didn’t adjust for Australian toilets flushing in the opposite direction.
My demon hunter just mowed through hell’s minions and I arrived at the final confrontation with the Big D himself way faster than with my Barbarian. However, while my Barbarian hardly broke a sweat defeating Diablo, the Demon Hunter is having problems. I guess I need to formulate a different strategy.
Maybe it would confuse him if you tried running away.
If that fails, try building a large wooden badger.
I thought of that, but you don’t get the wooden badger skill until 40th level.
Wooden badger don’t give a shit.
What about a mushroom?
CP: Dear Lover — Social Distortion
CW: Latest Dexter
This season has been a bit of a mess with great villain offed far to early in the season.
You’ve really got to chill on the goddamn spoilers, man. Seriously.
This is kind of wonderful and also kind of hard for me to process:
Well, that’s it then. We’re going to wait until tomorrow night to release the next episode. It’s mostly done, just a little bit more to do.
If nothing else, we can pad the week’s comment numbers.
Well I can stop hitting the refresh button now.
Oh, good. Now I won’t think the calendar shift was some confirmation that the end of the world as we know it is nigh.
Turns out that the Mayan calender makers were actually just predicting the end of the calendar making industry.
Since it is just 21 days away… I had never known the meaning or the origin of this song.
Memories of watching Andy Stewart on TV seeing in the New Year and being bored silly and playing with an Evel Knievel stunt bike toy and being told to stop as I was making too much noise.
Lavie Tidhar is getting a lot of buzz in the scifi lit world and he’s released one of his short stories for free:
Question of the day: what do puck bunnies do when there is a strike?
Let it slide ?
Its a work stoppage, not a strike
It’s a lockout, not a work stoppage.
I recommend NCAA collegiate hockey.
A lot of those teams play with almost as much talent … but all of the right motivation!
I agree. Our Calgary Hitmen are awesome
I believe I posted earlier about this, but I’ve been pitting EA NHL12 teams against each other on the XBOX. Pretty hilarious actually.
The CBC actually did an interview with someone using just Canadian born players to see which province would make the best team. Ontario won.
I will be familyless this afternoon. I expect to pad the comments with a PBP
Apparently my Secret Santa gift has been delivered already, at least according to Amazon Tracking. That was amazingly quick.
Wish I could say the same about ThinkGeek.
If the package I ordered for myself arrives before the DPSS gift I ordered I may have to boycott them.
Sigh. We don’t need another remake of “The Saint”.
Let’s skip to the chase and just have a remake based on Emma Peel!!!
Ms. Emma Peel is always awesome. 🙂
Brad Sucks has a new album out.
Has there been a work stoppage on the Dead Pan? Has the Skesis been negotiating to give Jack a higher share of the beatings?
I really dislike the new iTunes. I greatly miss not seeing the size and play time for individual albums when I’m looking through playlists. And it doesn’t remember my selection when I switch back and forth.
I haven’t been prompted yet to upgrade. I’m gonna say no!
Well Pan, be warned. In about an hour you will be subjected to this. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silent_House_(film)

Awww, daddy’s going upstairs to shw the little girl there are no monsters
The little girl is fully grown by the way
Her shirt is cut awfully low
Old houses make noise
Clean this mess up!
She found a locked lock box. Go figure
Wow this is a slow moving flik
What happened to daddy?
I agree, mirrors in the dark are creepy
Wow is she a coward
It’s not often you can lock yourself in a house but, the key is missing so she can’t get out. Go figure
Wow, the empty bottle is rolling around on the floor. Scary
She’s kind of freaking out
Does that really work?
*sigh*. Just… *sigh*
Finally. She found a body
You know something? My cat, who’s sleeping on my lap, has more tension and thrills than this movie
Hang in there daddy!
I just don’t understand
I have no idea what’s going on. Although, truth be told, I’m not really paying attention
She bumped her head

Pointless but cool:
Unlike this movie which is just pointless
Now. Everybody is gone
The movie is over. I understand what it was trying to say but it failed utterly in its presentation. There was no feeling of tension at all. There were no thrills or chills. Some movies, knowing the story isn’t doing it will add a few jump out scenes to try to scare you that way. This movie, nada. Nothing. All I felt was meh
1. “All I felt was meh” – – I need this printed on a t-shirt.

4. “Overreacting” from Brad Sucks is a great tune.
2. I use cheap reading glasses but they are low level (1.5). As for walking in to things, I only wear them for reading. Anything at a distance is clear without them so I don’t wear them when I don’t need them. Go figure.
3. Tsuro is one of our favourite games
2. I’m super blind, so those would do me not a lick of good.
IGN reviews The Hobbit:
Rest easy, DPSS package has arrived in Texas. Many thanks.
And, coincidentally, the gift I’m sending out also arrived today. Which confused the hell outta me as my receiving gift and sending gift share a theme and I actually considered the gift I received as the one I was going to send.
Scared me into thinking that I had accidentally placed an order I didn’t intend. So, I get Christmas thrills and Halloween frights all rolled into one.
What’d you get, Ed?
Tell me more, tell me more!
Sorry, no spoilers until my gift is safely delivered. Can’t be giving away any hints 🙂
