Yabba dabba doooo!
Honest trailer for Rouge One:
Do they have an honest trailer for “Moulin Rogue?”
Not to be confused with the King Arthur based musical Merlin Rouge
This is a serious read, but almost every word of it is perfect:
Yes and yes. I think its extremely plausible to be pissed at both.
I agree with his assessment, but I would also counter that in a democracy, if we want to know who is responsible for the oppressive system we have, one needs only to look in the mirror. If we want change, there is a system in place to create it.
*Does the new page happy dance*
RIP J. Geils. May all his angels be centerfolds.
Look I’m not kidding… those of you who stopped watching SHIELD S4 due to the Ghost Rider storyline NEED to pick it up at the LMD storyline. It’s a miracle of TV storytelling.
Oh shush, I never stopped watching.
Large Melon Dish?
Lemony Midget Diplomats?
Loaded Marshmallow Dice?
I’m hoping to get back to it. I’m trying to catch up on shows, including picking up Hulu just to watch Legion and the upcoming Handmaid’s Tale.
“Here he makes his own soap”
“You should too”
Lives up to your hype! Very cool images. Its so Van.
Crap joke for the day:
A fifteen-year-old came home with a Porsche and his parents began to yell and scream, “Where did you get that car?”
He calmly told them, “I bought it today.”
“With what money!?” demanded his parents. “We know what a Porsche costs.”
“Well,” said the boy, “this one cost me fifteen dollars.”
The parents began to yell even louder. “Who would sell a car like that for fifteen dollars!?” they asked.
“It was the lady up the street,” said the boy. “Don’t know her name — they just moved in. She saw me ride past on my bike and asked me if I wanted to buy a Porsche for fifteen dollars.”
“Oh my goodness!” moaned the mother, “she must be a child abuser. Who knows what she will do next? John, you go right up there and see what’s going on.”
So the boy’s father walked up the street to the house where the lady lived and found her out in the yard calmly planting flowers. He introduced himself as the father of the boy to whom she has sold a Porsche for fifteen dollars and demanded to know why she did it.
“Well,” she said, “this morning I got a phone call from my husband. I thought he was on a business trip, but I learned from a friend he has run off to Hawaii with his secretary and really doesn’t intend to come back. He claimed he was stranded and asked me to sell his new Porsche and send him the money. So I did.”
It might be a bit snug for us…
I get to visit the dentist today
The news said today is licorice day. I may need to celebrate
Ha! The dentist’s office called to reschedule. Apparently the dentist called in sick.
Finished Horizon Zero Dawn yesterday. It’s a great game and I loved it. Hopefully it will come to the PC for you non-console people.
Good review with screen shots: https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2017/02/horizon-zero-dawn-is-the-best-robot-safari-adventure-game-ever-made/
Yeah, unfortunately there are no current plans to port this game to PC
I wonder if NetFlix has bad Easter Horror movies.
I admit, after the kerfuffle with United, I had to double check what airline I was taking in August. It’s Delta.
We finally watched the first episode of Iron Fist yesterday.
It was ok. I’ll hold off judgement until we see more
Finn Jones, the Danny Rand guy, also played the Knight of Flowers on Game of Thrones.
CP: Synthwave Belongs in a Musuem — Who Ha
So, there exists a dataset of all the panels and text for 4,000 golden age comic books
So, we have a data scientist at work that would like to do something interesting with this set, such as look up the most frequent Robin exclamations. Any good suggestions? Any burning questions that big data could answer for you?
This is why we have Big Data.
Today I pottered around Bletchley Park for a few hours, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again if you are ever in the U.K. It’s worth a visit:
RIP, Charlie Murphy. :( Give Rick James a slap when you see him.
Time to see what Netflix has in store for us
While Google gives me lots of Easter themed horror movies, the only thing I can find on Netflix is the remake for the movie Cabin Fever. Apparently the original had someone who would dress up in a bunny suit. Can’t figure out if the remake has the same thing.
Rotten Tomatoes give it 0% though so I’m going to watch it
I present, for your reading pleasure, Cabin Fever
The Netflix write up: as a flesh eating virus rips its way through a remote woodland cabin, the terrified teens vacationing inside wonder who’ll fall victim next
A man with a dead bunny
A disintegrating dog
An awkward looking group of teens who actually look like they are in their thirties
A kid in a bunny mask
The bunny kid bites
What he said
Josh Brolin has been cast as Cable for Deadpool 2.
I though he was going to be the other villain.
Some fox piss
There is “bad stuff” in the woods
Stealing a Snickers
He probably wasn’t himself before he stole a Snickers.
I’m not very far in to this movie, but I can see why it got such a high rating in Rptten Tomatoes
Cue the orchestra
There’s no tv in the cabin
No phone and no internet. What a surprise
But the is sexy time
He brought an assault rifle
Posing with his rifle
He wants to get it on with Karen
There’s nudity in this movie
About time, we’ve weathered this lack of nudity in the PbP’s for too long! Fight the Power!
Greasy Toby tried to kiss her before this trip
Oh for God’s sake. Just make out already
Meanwhile, the guy with the gun…
Every one of these people needs to die
The fire is spreading
A stranger enjoying nature
Grimm Connor has a bag of weed
She’s into shower masterbation
He exploded in their car
And then they burned him alive
The rain will have put his fire out
I have no idea what’s going on in this movie
A car covered in blood
She left the group to go through the woods alone
Now she’s in a canoe.
A rusty old pipe
You “accidentally” covered him with lighter fluid and set him on fire?
Don’t drink the water
Noises in the barn
Gutting a pig
Rickey has a tow truck
They burned cousin Henery
Meanwhile, the girl in the canoe
Oh look, the police
WTF is up with this deputy
All chicks are head cases
Now the girl has a gun
Crazy dog is back
Sexy time again
Well, that kind of kills the mood
Yes, locking her in the room will help
Then we will move the sick girl to the boat she’d?
Screwing up their screwing
These crazy kids are all bout the lies
Let’s stick together alone
On an unrelated note, this just came in the mail
Now he’s infected
And he leaves them all
He’s taking the beer and going
All you want to do is grab the person next to you and fuck the shit out of them
And that’s just what they’re going to do
The hillbillies want to kill them
Shaving while you have a flesh eating disease seems like a bad idea to me
Kind of late now, don’t you think?
That dog gets around
If your gun runs out of bullets, use a shovel
Then my phone rings. Back in a bit
Ok, where was I.
Oh yeah. If the shovel doesn’t work, burn her alive
Then steal the truth, crash it, and watch it explode
Death by guitar
Winston lied to him
The last one to live is the last one to die
It made absolutely no sense and the acting was terrible.
It was glorious
Earlier we ordered iPads. Tracking the shipment has been interesting.
They started in Nanjing, China. Then went to Shanghai. Now they are in Anchorage, Alaska
Unintentional John Carpenter kick – – Assault on Precinct 13 last night (I’d never seen it before), Escape From NY tonight.
He advanced quite a bit as a filmmaker between these two.
Sleep is for wimps
She says at 2:02am. :-/
Ok is Summer Brooks real name Jen Albert?
Was a fuck up, they corrected it now.
Woman calls her nerdy boyfriend:
“”Come over”, she begged. “I need you right now!”
“Just turn it off and on again’, he sighed. “He hated these late night rebooty calls”
Great big fluffy flakes of snow
From Anchorage, my iPad then went to Louisville, KY,, then to Sioux Falls, SD, and is now in Calgary
The iPads are more well travelled than I am
Aside from making you look like a Minion. . .
So today I watched the first episode of Archer S9.
Pam in a suit, OMG…
HO HO HO!
I think you’re mixing up your benevolent Christian figures.
Ho Ho oh….
CP: I Miss You — La Strange
ditto! Hockey post! And Toronto’s in it this year (no small thanks to the kid from AZ ;) ) ! We need your perspective!
So the transfer of files from the old ipad to the new one is an exercise of frustration for both hubby and I.
I am a rifle. I am this blockade.
I’m banners and violence and car-bombs and riots.
I am a rifle. I am this blockade.
I am the fire of a thousand murdered sons.
I’m still up, might as well hang on another half hour to catch the beginning of the new MST3K.
First 30 minutes are fun! Great cameos and little tweaks to the characters. I think the Mass are going to be fantastic.
Really? Well that bodes well
Just noticed the autocorrect. %#$!#!
Legion is still so good.
YOU TAKE THAT BACK!!!!
Just learned that my 10-ish minute commute is going to be 30-ish by the end of the year.
Hey, at least I’ll have time for audiobooks again.
Increased traffic or construction? Or is something moving?
They just announced that the company is moving. I’ll be hip and trendy in downtown Phoenix.
I went through something similar at my workplace. Went from a place 10 minutes away with no real traffic to a trendy office park near the University of Central Florida (UCF) that tripled my commute. Fortunately for me I like the place I work enough that I’m still there.
Dang, I guess we’ll have to do a few more lunches while we can.
I seem to be in the minority who prefers the over-the-top comic book ending.
I like the comic book ending that actually reflected life in the 1980s. However, I feel like we already have a comic book version, movie version, and motion graphic version of the comic. In addition to an animated version of Tales of the Black Freighter. I feel like an animated version is just more of the same at this point. Then again, I’m in the camp that has been a bit overwhelmed with all the comic book film/tv lately.
One and 1/2 in, and I’m digging the new MST3K (sorry, Van). The riffs are a bit more manic and high-speed, but that’s kinda working. And I’m not hating Jonah.
And speaking of. . . . although I’m sure this has been shared to heck around FB:
This is a funny 2:38.
I’m 2 episodes in and feel much the same. The flying Tom Servo is a bit odd. I was definitely glad that they dud just barely enough back story to get things moving and didn’t linger about.
I haven’t like the flying Tom Servo so far, but I can see opportunities in the premise. It certainly hasn’t detracted.
Good morning, Deadpan! I just spent the morning at a Denny’s with cool con people, while wearing my Jedi outfit. I’m sorry I didn’t stop to get a picture. I’ve been posting some of my con adventures on Twitter (@amybowen). I am having an amazing time at Star Wars Celebration! :)
If you stop by the Fantasy Flight Booth, say hi to Sterling Hershey for me.

Challenged accepted Iceland:

Casual sex is mentioned.
But looks like the article has been removed.
Soul ire won Dragon & Flagon, I won a game of Takenoko. Now it’s time to watch Doctor Who
Stupid autocorrect. You get the idea
I enjoyed that
Yeah, better than I expected.
I don’t know when we’ll get to the new Who. The time gaps and un-handsome cranky geezer Doctor seem to have lost the younger viewer here. I’m curious, but feeling burned by last season’s terrible writing.
Impress the TSA with your modified Casio watch:
Seeing this film today:
Come for the lesbian sex scene, stay for the twists and revenge on dirty old men.
The bells, the bells, I’m just hoping Essbee doesn’t see me trying to explain a scene in the film to my cousin.
She may die laughing..
Ben Wha balls
As Cynthia pointed out.
“Shall we go out onto the street, Easter my dear, and repeat the exercise? Find out how many passers-by know that their Easter festival takes its name from Eostre of the Dawn? ”
I’m really looking forward to American Gods.
RIP Allan Holdsworth. “Everyone Gets Old if They Have the Time.”
Another manic Monday
Crapjoke for the day:
Nixon, Carter, Clinton are on a boat. The boat’s going down. Carter says, ‘Women and children first.’ Nixon says, ‘Screw them.’ Clinton says, ‘Do you think we have time?’
So the free film tonight is Baron Muchansen, haven’t watch that all the way through since it’s cinema release.
Enjoy a young Uma
Oh I’m sure I will.
Dangerous Liaisons what?
Yeah it was good to watch it all the way through again.
Bacon steak though..never again!
I wonder if the park difficulty will be 1, 2 or 3 purple dice?
Where has justaJ0e been?
Van, did you have to explain the sex scene?
We loved Dr Who E1. Long live Bill.
Yes, Cynthia helped to make the penny drop for my cousin.
The film is well seeing unless you really hate subtitles.
My nieces 9 month old baby boy caught foot and mouth disease.
Well if you must catch something make it a rare disease..well in humans.
I thought this was the start of a crap joke. I hope it’s not too serious! Poor kid. :-/
Walk Off the Earth. My daughter shared these guys with us. . . . Kind of an OK Go! vibe, except WOTE seem to only do their unique takes on pop covers.
I quite liked this.
Their videos are really clever. Worth a little Youtube rabbit hole.
Took my Boo in this morning to get her summer tires put on.
There. Feb is one report away from being done. That means I can get March started and then… royalty calculations.
Damn authors are pretty demanding when it comes to their money.
Interesting article. Still a dull soundtrack.
CW: The Leftovers S3E1
Oh gawd I love this show.
Great acting, makes no sense at all.
I’m seriously loving the new new MST3K. Loving it. From Kinga Forrester and Patton Oswalt to the new Servo and Crow. . . and yes, even Jonah. It’s such a joy to have this show back.
It’s also really nice to have an actual woman voicing Gypsy now. Her drop-ins are odd, but I’m hoping they expand on them.
I actually loved the old Gypsy voice (reminded me of Monty Python trying to do female voices). I need to start watching this.
I’m really glad Jonah isn’t ruining it, but I still wouldn’t give him the skin off my shit…
The Dragon approves of that message.
I’ll never eat sausages again.
Tony Mast will be disappointed.
I’m telling you, it’s a new fav! She should be most proud
5 post-credits scenes. I guess we all knew this day was coming.
Uh… yeah. Little known fact – “Avengers: Infinity Wars Part 2” is actually going to be it’s own 3 hour post credits sequence in “Avengers: Infinity Wars Part 1”
Going to the double feature on opening night :)
Since 2014, I’d been saving a list of the books I’ve read and was planning to read in a draft gmail email. I looked for it today, and it appears to have just vanished. Gone. Searches for solutions have been no help at all.
Takeaway: Do not trust gmail drafts.
I’ve started a new document. . . . Am I a fool for entrusting Google Docs with it?
I’ve been entrusting google drive with my lists of bottles/cans, movies, and bills for years. At first (as trust was low) I always changed the date on each document when I altered it and kept 2 old dates as recent backups. Lately I’ve gotten away from doing that and just edit the documents as I go. Then again, keeping one document on the cloud is just as stupid (on my part) as having only on file on a drive. Any system is likely to fail sooner or later. I need to make more frequent backups of what I have on Google Drive to hard drive backups.
Why don’t you use GoodReads? It will save as “have read” and “want to read”. Hubby also has it subdivided into custom bookshelves by genre.
GoodReads is a thought. . .
Another hubbiless evening
It’s quite foggy out today
I hope the above 2 comments aren’t connected.
The original StarCraft is now free. This was a seriously great game. I’m seriously excited to download it and never play it.
So I do have one of those “Hive Mind” questions. I think I’d like to share my mashups out there for general consumption. What’s a good outlet? Soundcloud?
I’d post ’em for free, and probably semi-anonymously, since most of the music samples were taken without permission.
I’ll probably ask the Facebooks too, but I wanted to ask here first.
I don’t really know. SoundCloud might work, but I think you expose yourself to public view. Of course some sampling is allowed in the context of fair use. If it is just the Deadpan audience, a DropBox or Google Drive folder may do the trick.
Soundcloud. It’s what our own JfS uses to share his DJ sets and it works wonderfully
Soundcloud works well, but there if you follow Reddit, there is also a forum dedicated to Mashups. https://www.reddit.com/r/mashups/
In other news:
It seems awfully strange that they would be denied entry, given that they are from Japan. Of course my first thought was “Loudness is still together?”
Truth is the NSA thought “MZA” was a North Korean military branch…
CP: Testament – Sins of Omission
Truly, perhaps the greatest song from the greatest Testament album.
Also my favorite Testament album!
Excellent track too.
Ok I cant wait
Good god, that’s a funny trailer.
While Big Trouble in Little China will always be my fav Carpenter film, They live will always be my most respected
Amy talking about being at the Star Wars celebration was making me reminisce about the very first celebration in 1999 in Denver. That was an amazing weekend. It rained nonstop and it was kind of hastily put together, but man the excitement and joy that was Celebration I was palpable. So great. I hope Amy brings back some great stories!
Time to stare at numbers in boxes again
I was listening to a podcast and they were discussing heroism. The question they asked was, is Superman really heroic? They postulate he isn’t. The reason being, there is no actual risk to him. He can stop a robbery because bullets won’t hurt him. He can run into a burning building for the same reason. Is Superman a hero because there is no actual risk to him? Altruistic yes, but heroic?
Well when you say it line that..
Oh and what podcast was this?
Would that be more of a pedantcast? ;)
I guess it depends on whether or not the definition of “heroism” includes personal danger.
His invincibility definitely presents a storytelling challenge.
That’s always been my big problem with Superman and why I don’t really read those comics anymore. The other problem is current America society insists on calling everyone a hero. It’s ridiculous.
I enjoyed the Hidden Figures book butbloidy hell the film only covers the last third of the book.
I haven’t read the book, but I’m not surprised. There’s just too much information to cover and they need a good storyline for a movie.
Stuff to Blow Your Mind. It’s from back in December
I like most of the Stuff podcasts. There’s five or six of them that I listen to.
This was meant as a reply to Van’s comment on podcasts, not on Hidden Figures.
Wow, Agents of Shield is powerful this week
We’re 4 or 5 episodes behind
Hi guys. Miss me? :D
CP: Finale (TRON: Legacy) — Daft Punk
All is forgiven if you come back with Daft Punk.
According to this website I’ve never heard of, the BBC has stated that they currently have no plans for a female ‘Doctor Who.’
I’m skeptical of the source, and also of the statement. I guess we’ll see.
Decent new Mastodon-ish heavy synth song from Mastodon’s drummer.
NASA image archive is now full searchable:
OMG, this is an awesome find. I may need to use some PTO time.
CP: San Jacinto — Peter Gabriel
Ah nostalgia, Uncle Remus Play Kits, cheap toys and not something indecent.
“Hey kids, let’s play with Br’er Tar Baby!”
We finally saw Hidden Figures. Nice!
The book is good as well!
You’re ALL heroes to me…
Ah, but the green-eyed girls… ;)
Ah.. ah see there are heroes and then there are goddesses… ;)
Yep. You see where I’m going with that. ;)
I see that the X-files is coming back for another 10 ep “event”. Good. They can fix the bullshit of the first “event”. I do realize there are folks who very much liked the first event, and that’s fine. I just found it wholly unnecessary. .
Yes there were problems with the first event. Does not prevent me from getting excited about seeing this group together again. Some of my favorites from the last event were the stand alone creature features. (especially Darby). We’re all used to revisionist history at this point, even if it can be upsetting at times.
CP: In Your Face — Brad Sucks
Holy shit! Brad Sucks!!!!!
Big ugly document edit. Need something inspiring to get me through it. This will work:
Are you starting a Metallica concert?
Ghostwatch, Van? Did it really terrify all of the U.K. when it aired?
Overblown, but there certainly was a minority who got fooled.
So thanks to Apple, I got a new shiny set of earbuds and an adapter I no longer need.
More on why I refuse to read DC and the vast majority of Marvel
“Marvel’s CEO is a close advisor to Trump.” What?
And thus, my iPod Classic recovers from its quietus, a reminder of its gradual march toward inevitable mortality.
My touch will no longer update so it is feeling like it is the way of the Dodo although not bricked
Holy crap, these are amazing.
Holy shit snacks! Incredible.
Did YOU know that Kirsten Dunst had done a cover of “Turning Japanese”?
I haven’t listened, only watched for a few seconds. I’m assuming the worst.
This makes zero sense as to why she did it. There is sooooo much wrong here that I won’t go into. Sooooo she basically made a video for fanboys to masturbate to while singing a song about male masturbation. How very meta…
You can stop rubbing yourself now.
I was done about 5 minutes after Jack posted…
CP: If I Had A Heart — Fever Ray
Which reminds me, the British History Podcast did a great episode on Ragnar.
You just turned me on to something special.\
You just turned me on, something special.\
Well, there’s now a third driver in our household…and the insurance bill to go with it. But, totally worth it.
Exciting news, Ed! Did you get her a chauffer’s hat yet?
No, but I did give here a “Denali” key ring fob that we found on our trip to Alaska last year. Once consequence of a non-top 50 kids name is never finding it on anything at the souvenir shops.
I maybe screwed for August unless I’m prepared to take a big risk..sigh.
Is it something we can help with? Elaborate?
That is a bit of a vague-pan, Van. I do hope it works out.
And yes, plz, let us know if we can help from the States.
This doesn’t have anything to do with Trumpenov, does it?
Ah no, difficulty getting travel insurance when I’m under investigation for medical reasons.
I’m going to go ahead with planning and see what happens from now till August.
Just a heads up I may not be able to come.
Ah. What Bunny said. Keeping fingers crossed until further notice!
EAT MORE SALAD, MAN!
What a day. Started in Flagstaff for a strings field trip for my daughter– on her birthday, no less. We gave her the option to ride home with her friends on the bus, which she took.
We used our sudden stretch of unexpected free time to visit Dan Shaurette. He’s not having fun, but enjoyed the visit. Then home for cake, cleaning, and party prep for a house full of giddy teenage girls tomorrow.
Awesome on the daughter front. Those teenage girl parties can be…well… if there’s a word beyond ‘exhausting’ then that. Good times tho.
Hope dan gets the hell out of there asap
The younger ages will run you ragged, but I was hoping this age would be a little more self-sufficient .
These things usually get an eye-roll at best from me, but this one is actually pretty good.
The ground clouds are thick today.
Is that innuendo?
Nah mine’s ‘Clarence’.
Ground clouds = fog
Today it’s still all about the numbers.
It’s pretty wet and rainy outside
