Our condo complex are at the very edge of the city. The complex literally backs onto farmland. Every once in a while, like today, you can smell the livestock
Hubby says his grade eights are doing this, some with greater or lesser success
Your face is better than facebook
Ok Netflix, let’s see what you have for me today
Sorry, kitty demanded a combing before I started
Today’s movie is The Devil Dolls
“These little worry dolls look too cute to be evil. But when murders start to happen, there’s a lot of worrying to do”
This is the worst tagline in the history of B movies.
Just to make it interesting, every line of my pbp will start with “That’s no doll”
That’s no doll, that’s the opening credits
That’s no doll, that’s a person in distress
That’s no doll… oh wait, yes it is
That’s no doll, that’s several of them
That’s no doll, that’s her trying to escape
That’s no doll, that’s too much noise
That’s no doll, at least, it’s not a cute doll. They’re actually pretty ugly
That’s no doll, that’s a giant ass drill
That’s no doll, that’s a cop car
That’s no doll, that’s a dead cop
That’s no doll, that’s a rescue
That’s no doll, that’s a crime scene
That’s no doll, but it is a doll case
That’s no doll, that’s a crazy woman
That’s no doll, it’s a dog
That’s no doll, that’s an awkward situation
That’s no doll, that’s The Emporium
That’s no doll, that’s something young girls shouldn’t touch
That’s no doll, that’s a doll necklace
That’s no doll, that’s a scream
That’s no doll, that’s a murder wall
That’s no doll, and it will not be ok
That’s no doll, that’s a pregnancy test
That’s no doll, that’s a pair of killer scissors
That’s no doll, but that’s just as dangerous
That’s no doll, that’s a satanic symbol
That’s no doll, that’s a scared little girl
That’s no doll, that’s a dead dog
That’s no doll, that’s a possessed little girl
That’s no doll, that’s an interrogation
That’s no doll, that’s Chloe
That’s no doll, that’s a good luck charm
That’s no doll, that’s a hedge clipper
That’s no doll, that’s crazy Todd
That’s no doll, it’s crazy Todd’s dead wife
That’s no doll, that’s dead Todd
That’s no doll, that’s the crazy woman again
That’s no doll, that’s a crazy back story
That’s no doll, that’s a search for the dolls
That’s no doll… well it is, just the wrong kind of doll
That’s no doll, that’s a bath tub
That’s no doll, that’s a jealous man
That’s no doll, that’s Ethan
That’s no doll, that’s dead Darcy
That’s no doll, that’s an emergency
That’s no doll, that’s a double cross
That’s no doll, that’s fire
That’s no doll, that’s life
That’s no doll, that’s a really dumb movie. Seriously, I just don’t know what to say
Even the “not ending” most of these types of movies have made no sense and seemed to have no relevance to the rest of the movie
WTH! Whatever happened with the preggo test?!
They never said. I don’t think it was actually purchased since the boyfriend, who was purchasing it, killed the store owner then was killed himself.
What I learnt today:
There was a series of tv films, made in the Soviet Union, that adapted Sherlock Holmes stories:
Goddamn it, Phoenix got “Suffragette City” from Weird Al last night. For our Tuscon trip, we just got “You Really Got Me.”
I’ve been back to the chiro twice now (It’s covered by insurance).
It’s weird; he’s a cool guy who likes to shoot the shit, about my age. So it’s like I’m hanging out with a friend…. who does weird things to my body whenever we get together.
Speaking of that, looking forward to spending time with Van again this summer!
Remember your safe word….
It’s “Electric Sheep.”
That’s a lot like my massage therapist, she is what I call a “geek wannabe” so she watches the latest movies then asks me a whole bunch of questions afterwards about who was who, what my theories were, and what was actually going on.
While rubbing lotion on your skin.
Damnit Jack it’s Schlachthof Fünf
Now this is cool:
It was interesting to see the countries that changed over the years.
Hubby was willing to let me sleep in but I was awake.
Growing up, the first track of this album (heart of the golden west) was all you would hear during Stampede. Mom even had a 45 with this on the one side (I don’t remember what was on the other). While I’m not of fan of the Stampede, I do kind of miss this song. How strange is that?
Nostalgia is a funny thing.
This song reminds me a lot Stompin’ Tom Thunders’ “The Good Old Hockey Game.”
So a Japanese girl and twin brothers from Italy start a band…
It’s not a joke, it’s Blonde Redhead!
Interesting approach to ticket sales.
A ticket… what now? Box…office?
In all honesty I am that guy who, when possiblem will only buy from a box office. Mainly cause it saves me 10-20 bucks a ticket in goddam fees
CP: Is It For Me — Toad The Wet Sprocket
Well travel insurance purchased, so apart from buying some actually dollars, i’m All set for seeing most of you in Denver and Phoenix.
I bought my insurance with my ticket.
Van, does your insurance exclude “high risk activities”? I ask since a certain Texan mentioned something about skating and I’m not sure where that falls on the spectrum since it often includes falls.
(I can’t because of other reasons but am willing to be a spectator)
I would just have to watch anyway, my dodgy knee is not up to skating.
“high risk activities” is usually code for things like sky diving or major mountain climbing.
So, unless someone’s got a really big surprise planned, you should be good.
Strangely the insurance company would charge me more money if I was going on a cruise when on holiday.
WestJet pilots have just voted to go on strike this summer. I’m flying WestJet
Give em what they need, WestJet execs!
I stopped watching a while back:
No one cares if you did.
It was a great 4 years. I see now why they are doing what they are doing with it. To be fair, a show like this getting a full 4 year run is pretty remarkable
The fact Brooklyn 99 was cancelled is actually shocking. Great show. I thought it was popular too
I care motherfocker!
Youre the only one suckermotha!
Bow down before my good taste.
Well, the city did give us Johnny Cash and Elvis. It hasn’t all been terrible country music and rhinestones and hatred of brown people.
But, this is SyFy, nee Sci-Fi. . . . at least they cancelled the show before the characters turned out to be angels, or secret Cylons, some such nonsense.
Sticking a camera on a model train:
Metal fans rejoice!!!!!!! Long awaited debut from Ginger Thrasher
I clicked without sound. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

I’ve made a few forays into egg poaching. It’s an interesting art.
Ummm, I’ve only made poached eggs in this manner. Although I use a slotted spatula, not spoon, otherwise it’s the same. I didn’t realize there were other ways to poach an egg, or that it was a big deal *shrug*
Adding vinegar to the water before boiling does stop eggs leaking when making soft boiled eggs.
A blast from the past…
CP: You Shouldn’t Have Pissed Me Off — Beatnik Turtle
A rare non-company/gaming weekend. How strange
Weird to have a day with nothing on the calendar. It’s 3:27pm and I still haven’t showered.
Shower update: still no. But now that I’m done for the day in the yard, it’s imminent.
This might be a divisive statement, but I quite like Skrillex.
*insert blank stare gif here*
Y’all be quiet
Happy Mother’s Day!
Happy mom’s day all!
Today will be PC gaming and cheesecake. What more could I ask for?
Van……… dragon update please
The Dragon is back. Changed a few of her meds and hopefully get her a colonoscopy at some point.
I’ll say it here:
I’m fortunate to be married to a woman who’s been to hell and back with me as a stepmom, and in 3 months has proven herself to be a world class bio mom. I appreciate her mama skills every day.
Happy Mother’s Day, Tiffany.
Awwww. Swoon and Squeee.
I love you, Mr. Mangan
:love: :heart: One of those 🙂
Budweiser Freedom Reserve? Oh, fuck you.
Freedom isnt free.
There’s a hefty fucking fee
And if you don’t put down your buck o’five who will?
Freedom costs a buck o’five
Why cant we Americans be gleeful like the Koreans?
The reveal is awesome
Another shocker in that I’m alone this evening.
Enjoy your free (and excellent) brand new The Joy Formidable song! Link will automatically download the song.
Download limit exceeded. 🙁
What? It said to “share with friends”!
Try this one
Thanks. I already got it from their website.
Well gooooooood foooooor yooooou!!!!!!
..and it’s goodbye to Lois Lane:
This one is really sad. Not just for her death but for the quality of life she had battling her disease.
Very sad. 🙁
Oh no. 🙁 As a young person, it bugged me that she wasn’t “pretty” like Lois Lane is “supposed to be,” but later in life, I came to realize just how perfect she was for the part, and how perfect she was in it. Lois needed to be this gutsy and tough.
Because I’m never happy, I’m now going to complain about the heat. 28C today and 30C predicted for tomorrow. Nothing compared to AZ I know, but really unusual for May here
And thanks to whoever recommended Locke & Key. The first GN in that series is excellent.
I’m also glad I didn’t know who the author is until after I’d started reading. . . that definitely would have colored my perception.
We need to send him against the White Walkers
That is badass.
Please, enjoy 4 minutes of Beastie Boys being Elvis Costello’s back up band. Glorious.
Hmm, a davidlopan makes a comment on an IO9 article about the latest West World episode.
There can be only one! Wait a minute. . . .
GODDAMN COPYRIGHT INFRINGER!!!!
Some good news:
Another scorcher of a day. This hot weather is causing worries of flooding.
Ahhhhh shit. Bonfire of the Vanities is one of the best novels I’ve ever read. He was quite a character, with an amazing gift for imagery. RIP.
Ticket book to see Deadpool 2 tomorrow.
So – – question for you all – – especially those with large, diverse music catalogs:
What are you using these days? Apple Music, Amazon, Google Play, etc? iPod? Spotify/Pandora?
Spotify and Amazon
And what’s the deal with Amazon? Can you upload your own mp3s to the catalog? I thought they had a limit of 150 song uploads?
They have stopped uploading your own track library .
I’ve been using Amazon. I’ve been pretty satisfied so far.
We’re also an Amazon family – with six slots on the family plan, the wife, myself, each of our kids, and my parents and the wife’s parents are each covered.
I used to be full on Ipod and Itunes and thought I’d never go streaming…I don’t even know where my Ipod is anymore.
The best part of all this: I was prompted to ask the group while discussing this at the public library…. with a stack of CDs in my hand…..
Lunch with the boss today
I enjoyed Deadpool 2.
Be aware the although they are some sequences that play out as the credits rolling there is no sequence right at the end.
Once you hear the juggernaut song there are no more scenes.
He’s a juggernaut and he’s okay,
He burst through hardened steel structures all day.
Let’s see if shameless cross-promotion gets slammed into moderation…
You may recognize our Special Guest
w00t! Yes, this was a lot of fun to be a part of. I’m excited to listen. Thanks, Paul! er, I mean, JohnBoze. . . .
We’ve been in a bit of a lull around here this week, so I might recommend you post to the Deadpan FB page as well.
And oh yeah – – the next episode is where (spoiler) my battery dies at just about the end.
So according to Wikipedia, few Americans drink instant coffee.
I’m eating a jawbreaker, thus I’m gobstopped.
Because we’re not lazy! And in for the quick fix! We’re willing to put in the extra effort to get a little bit of quality! Wait, what am I saying?
Remind me what the most popular beer in the US is?
I think it’s still pisswater.
Although TO BE FAIR never has craft beer dug so deep into Budweiser’s beer hold as it has now. There is hope!
My condolences, X-Files fans.
This is a real shame. The one off monster of the week shows were excellent this year. What really killed it was the terrible “wtf is going on” mythology eps that no one gives a good god damn about anymore. Ol Chris “Worse than Lucas” Carter needed to stick to what the fans love and want. A real shame.
Yet we have more 24 and Prison Break to look forward to.
This is why I never headlined at Giants Stadium.
Also you hate the Giants
True. I would have declined the offer.
In potentially good TV news, this show is still getting made:
And it may be a good thing that Bryan “bloodgeyser” Fuller won’t be involved.
The article is mildly amusing, but OMG, that first comment. . . .
Thanks for the laugh and poop humor.
Which shows even Canada has its crazies
When words aren’t enough, say it with poop.
This article is an exception to the normal internet rules. Read the comments.
The dude could play a mean acoustic guitar:
The greatest ever. This is glorious.
How fucking easy does he makes it look.
Hear My Train a-Comin – from that session – is just one of the purest, most amazing things ever recorded to tape.
I just booked my flight and hotel for Deadpan MMMMMeetup 2018! Yay! 😀 I will be coming in on Thursday and leaving on Sunday night. I am definitely down for both skating and watching the Deadpan Jr. Auxiliary skate. 🙂
Re: music: They can have my iTunes library when they pry it out of my cold, dead hands. I’ve been buying so much music that way for so long that I’m reluctant to change over to a new system. That, and I care a lot about having my music files stored locally.
I should start thinking about considering a shopping list for the mmmmeetup. I think I’ll do the same thing as KC. Ship the stuff out ahead of time and just have carry on for the plane.
Looks like we’re going to get some rain today
Boy. I am NOT a fan of the new NIN. But I haven’t liked anything since the “Broken” ep…
I’ve never stopped loving Trent Reznor. . . . . but yes, this song is a failed experiment.
I can see it. He’s def an artist. Either he speaks to you or he doesn’t.
I don’t mind it. I can definitely hear the LCD Soundsystem influence. I much prefer the older Industrial NIN sound.
Have you heard DEVO to Head Like a Hole? It’s…beautiful
Yep. Good stuff.
I think he (Trent) is clearly experimenting with different types of singing. That’s a good thing.
I came in here to ask, but I see the answers have already been answered.
Fun alphabet .gifs.
Still a GRAND show that holds up beyond belief.
This new Ghost album… gonna be something special
Jus’ wanna be wanna be witchu in da mooonlite
Gotta love four day long weekends
Hubby’s still asleep. Shhhhhhhhh
Van I like weird things.
You do you.
I also like wired things
Santa Fe High School: ‘Eight fatalities’ reported in shooting http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-44173954
Par for the course. Nothing changes, nothing will. It’s beyond sad/sick…it’s a way of life
Keep those ‘prayers’ coming tho folks! They’ve done a marvelous job protecting our kids so far
Don’t interfere with the upward money stream – – keep your population in fear.
Do we want to make time during the MMMmmmmeetup to see Ant Man and the Wasp together?
I don’t have a problem with that, considering Marvel usually releases major MCU films a few days before in the U.K. it might be. My second viewing,
I think our dance card is pretty full that weekend, but if people want to go, then we should make time for it.
I won’t. I want to see it with hubby.
However, don’t let me stop you. The group has gone to movies and other things before without me. I’m fine staying behind and decompressing. I’ll have a book and I won’t be afraid to use it.
Or…. we could….. make odd, creepy clay busts…. of each other….
Gahhhhh, dizziness. I’m a mess, I tell ya.
Im sorry, babe. 🙁
If you want to explore the universe then Self repAiring Space probes is what you need:
This is one of those obvious things that hadn’t specifically occurred to me. Thx for posting this, Van.
Random comment aI saw.
Referring to Ryan Retnolds. “Ryan really is God’s perfect little snickerdoodle.”
What the shit!?!
. . . .
I’m not even sure Canada has snickerdoodles. I don’t remember seeing any at the store. Snickers yes, but not snickerdoodles
Don’t tell Wallace
AFAIK, snickerdoodles are just a type of delicious cinnamon sugar cookie. In fact, I’d recommend trying them for one of your cookie-baking days.
The above seems weird, though, if we’re talkinf about Ryan Reynolds.
I really don’t know what’s so odd about the above comment. “Snickerdoodle” is a common term of endearment as well. My grandmother called me it all the time.
I guess it just made me crave snickerdoodles.
Enjoying “Tomorrow Never Knows” with the elder girl.
I really enjoyed Deadpool 2. It did not disappoint.
And the two trailers they showed prior to the movie that were exclusive to DP2, were funny as hell.
I remember you, I crashed your wedding. With some orange crepe paper and some Halloween candy.
Happy Belated Bozeday!*
*Here. I did get you on FB on the actual day.
Goodnight, broken :mush:
