Everyday it’s a getting closer, going faster than a roller coaster …
You only think you’re here, but you’re not.
Deep in the upper part of Texas!

Morning from C A L G A R Y Heart of the Golden West
(I can use a song in my greeting too)
1) get info on Ralan.com
2) Website updates
3) audio edits (*sigh* only three more weeks until the book is released)
Ha! I’m already showered and dressed.
Ah, I remember the days of frequently checking Ralan for markets.
I read that as merecats for some reason.
You lucky people. It looks like I might even have time to do a play by play after lunch today.
Why does it feel like a Monday?
Only the Gnu knows.
Let’s not give Stallman that much credit.

CP: Because I’m Awesome — The Dollyrots
In about an hour I’ll be watching Mama. A little more mainstream then my usual fair but still… It’s really all I have on the DVR at the moment
I’m almost done playing this gem of a game.
Bloody hell. Getting he country wrong on your email and WordPress goes all freaky.
Anyway, I said
In an hour I’ll be watching Mama. A little more mainstream than the norm but it’s the only thing on my DVR at the moment
She gets thrown from a train.
Just killed a man.
Said the way you move, gonna make you sweat, gonna make you groove.
She said knock you out.
She raised no fool.
Don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys.
Because you KNOW that you want to go –

here is a “Safe for work” chart for you to study.
Another day, another train journey.
…err, if I actually list the “intangibles” doesn’t that then make them “tangible”?
That way lies madness.
You’re right. I’ll be listing them as well.
Ok Peeps. Grab your security blanket. It’s movie time
Since it’s been awhile, I’ll go over the rules:
Spelling errors – between me trying to type and keep up with the movie and auto correct, these are likely too.
Nonsensical – yeah definitely
Today’s movie is Mama
He DVR write up: As a woman tries to reintroduce her lover’s traumatized nieces to normal life, disturbing questions and occurrences suggest that a supernatural presence followed the girls home
Two out of three of the perfect B horror trifecta: violence and coarse language
Once upon a time…
Mommy’s not feeling well
She told him he was driving too fast
Daddy has gone crazy
A lonely cabin in the woods. That never ends well
Daddy is still going nuts
She can’t see
Mama saves the little girl
And now… The opening credits
Yeah, they’re searching hard
What did I say about old cabins in the woods?
She moves fast
What happens if her prescription changes?
A bed time story
I have a problem with this part of the story line
Yeah, this will work out well
I’ve decided Jamie Lannister is a bit of a cutie once he’s all cleaned up

What’s so funny
Hey, I’ve seen that movie
Noises from the bedroom
What’s in the closet?

Time to make amends
Mama is evil
That kid has an amazingly large skull
Google bye mama
Lily is happy at leats
Look at the pretty butterfly
How to describe this movie… It was better than most but I still had problems with many of the plot points
Another from the “talented kids” dept:
There appears to be a drum track playing, but otherwise, it’s all her, doing the bass, guitar, and synth parts on YYZ. I was skeptical in the opening minute, but no, it looks legit.
DEPECHE MODE BABY!!!!!!!!!!
That was – – literally – – the gayest fookin concert I’ve ever seen.
They were pretty fantastic live, and they even played one of my more obscure favorites. Highly recommended. Go see them if you get the chance.
Is that how they say Depeche Mode in Jersey?
CW: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – Episode 3. Catching up on the last 2 episodes tonight, back-to-back.
Longish time with no speaky. My apologies, it’s all my fault.
Hope all is well. I see that we quickly are creeping close to two gross and I just wanted to let you know I’m still out here listening, and I haven’t disappeared (regardless of my lack of presence.)
Ok, perhaps it’s the w00tst0ut talking (OK, It’s the w00tst0ut talking), but I am really going to miss this.
I will be posting voicemail soon, and I thank everyone for just being the mother-fucking way… that is to say, Deadpan…
Lejon! Good to see you, homeboy (??). Let’s do a Pasty Co. double-date with the women, one of these nights.
…One of those crazy ‘ole nights….
….We’re gonna find out, pretty mama, what turns on your lights…
Hi, Lejon! Great to hear from you! Can’t wait to hear your voicemail! 🙂
This is extremely well done.
How things have changed in 6 years:
It’s still dark outside. So why am I awake.
get the Tyche newsletter out
go to the vet to get Reeny’s medicine
Another exciting day in Bunnyland
Some strange people out there:
Be warned could be a troll..
Back from seeing this movie:
Was not impressed.
Would you believe I’ve completed all but the last task already? It’s amazing what you can do if you put your mind to it. Now let’s see if I can also do two chapters of audio edits.
I’m going to buried with one task for quite some time. 🙁
You’re not the only one 🙁 Gotta get to studying for this networking exam.
Well thanks, yous guys, for being the skeleton crew while real life kicks in for so many of our regulars, even while buried with your own real life tasks.
“skeleton crew” just in time for Halloween.
Black cat crew would also be acceptable. As long as we don’t become the cobweb crew or the zombie crew. I’d assume that the creepy spider crew is right out from you, Bunny.
Not just her…
Change of trousers time:
Holy crap. I just saw Hertl’s between the legs goal from last night. Impressive.
Ummm. Maybe NSFW. *shrug*. Depend upon you point of view
John Cleese is in Calgary
Got to love the timing and placement of ads
There’s a damn woodpecker pecking at my house. It’s very annoying.
Just call him Woody.
I hope Bunny’s previous two comments are unrelated.

Hey, hi everyone.
I just wanted to pop in and say hi since I never do. I’m a bad pannite 🙁
Jack will just have to spank you…
Your membership hasn’t been revoked! Drop by as often as you want. We’ll be here.
We never really leave. You just have these occasional dreams about this place called “the real world”
You can stop in any time you want
but you can never leave.
I don’t know how many of these are actually real but they are still pretty fun.
I suppose no one will be surprised to hear I am hubbyless once again this evening.
I bet Tegan & Sara fans will like this one.
No One’s Gonna Know — Tristen
Time to get ready for lunch with my Boo. It looks damp and chilly outside. I need a bad joke from Van so I can use his coat.
PHX and CAL are aligned… It’s damp and chilly here too.
I still have a couple of Depeche Mode songs CPIMM. That’s a sign of a good concert.
Thanks, Desert Pixie 🙂
Today I bought a new toaster because ours died. There was a time when toasters were simple. You put the bread in the slots, pushed the button down, and a few moments later, you had toast. Not any more. Even for an inexpensive one, like what I just bought, I still need to read the manual to see what all the buttons mean.
Did you get the one with WiFi?
No. But it seems to have everything else
I’d still keep an eye on it.
When SkyNet gets a hold of your toaster you can kiss your muffin goodbye!
We prefer the term, “Cylon Cybernetic Sentient Lifeform” to the racial slur: “Toaster.”
Do you want some toast?
I NEEEEEED a Sloth toy!
The Chunk doll should do the truffle shuffle, when pressured by the Corey Feldman doll.
I got 12 out of 20 for Kvlt.
11 out of 20, my soul was shredded at an IKEA store today.
9 out of 20
I obviously don’t listen to much Death Metar nor do much shopping at IKEA
10 out of 20
15 out of 20 and I neither shop at IKEA nor listen to Death Metal. Just lucky guessing.
I’m Kvlt, by the way. “You know that Furkantig means “square” in Swedish to describe the candles that you have on your altar. And above it? The raddest picture of Euronymous ever. Seriously, you scare children and their parents alike, all while wowing them with your design sense.”
Pumpkin beer night.
First up Terrapin Pumpkinfest. Not sickeningly sweet, but definitely overpowering on the pumpkin flavor.
Second of the night, Post Road Pumpkin Ale (Brooklyn Brewery). Much better. Subtle pumpkin, but strong spice.
Saved what I expected to be the best for last. Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale. Darker than the others. The pumpkin flavor is a bit more true to real pumpkin, but without the sweetness, I’m not sure that’s a good thing. Still a great beer. Weyerbacher doesn’t tend to disappoint.
Thanks for the ppbp, Usedhair (Pumpkin Play By Play) . I’ve had a slice of pumpkin pie at Village Inn, Pumpkin lattes, and pumpkin M&Ms so far this year, but no pumpkin beers. I’ll keep an eye out for that Weyerbacher.
Point of Clarification (POC) – that would be a “PBPBP”.
Now, say that (“PBPBP”) out loud. Your welcome.
Coyotes beat Wings and the Avs beat the Bruins. Great night for hockey!
Smitty was just starting to make me nervous.
It’s amazing how much work I get done before I actually get dressed.
This morning I tried our new toaster. I put bread in, toast came out. *shrug* there’s nothing more I could ask.
You know hubby has become a fan when I get the following email:
Could you record the following game for me on the TV today?
Channel 223, 12:30 p.m. FIFA Soccer World Cup Qualifier. Montenegro vs. England.
He’s one step away from becoming a hooligan.
Lunch with the boss. How exciting.
According to FB Rhettro is another year older.
Thanks Van and ditto! Closer to 50 now than 40, oh well, I guess it’s a journey everyone must take. No, I call bullshit, I’m walking back. LOL
CP: 10,000 Days (Wings Part 2) — Tool
Well … $#^& !
I just spent an hour recording my DOTF audio … only to find that it is just a series of buzzing tones. Not my voice “over driven” but just a buzzing tone that changes pitch.
Any one ever had this problem with audacity?
Everything was set up the way I always have it for recording.
I tried adjusting a few settings but it made no difference.
Ouch. Man, don’t jinx things for the rest of us! I’m getting ready to do my recording this evening.
Are you sure you were recording from your michrophone and not another “device”. I could possibly see something like that generating the result you have. Instead of capturing the audio, you actually capture noise and interference picked up by the other device.
I checked that. It saw my mic and said it was recording from that.
I did try restarting audacity (which did not help). I did not try re-starting my computer.
Maybe my mic/computer interface device has died. 🙁
I would also recommend that you check and see if the computer recognizes the mic. Thx for the effort, man. Let me know if I can help.
But happy birthday anyway Rhettro.
Thanks JOe, sorry bout your recording issues, at least you’re father along than I am.
*In Best Darth Vader Voice*
“Rhettro … I am your DOTF Father!”
That explains a lot.
Happy birthday from the Dark Side, Rhett.

Giant Birthday Hugs Rhettro!!!
Hugs back Bunny! Thank you!
CW: Synth Brittania
A BBC documentary about the synth bands of the late 70’s early 80’s.
Yes, Depeche Mode features…
This is the new Star Wars movie
I just had a cup cake.
I don’t know why.
Because they are little cakes the size of cups and no one can resist that.
Ok Deadpan, I’m going to bed.
Just an FYI, it’s Thanksgiving here in Canadaland so I may not be around until Tuesday.
Free Yetis Immediately
Off for some fun in the woods.
Avoid cabins and strange fuel pump owners.
Today is the day for travelling on a Steam train.
On the Bo’ness and Kinneil railway, some snaps will be posted on FB.
Your crap joke for the day:
When I was a kid my dad used to let me put my pocket money in a special money box under the stairs.I was 15 before I found out it was the fucking electric meter
Van what’s with all the hair? I thought we was bald bruthas 4 life!
I may on the surface look like a small Scottish hill but I’m afraid it’s all an illusion.
I don’t mean to brag, but I got to see Jack last night!
I can one-up her and tell you all that I got to see EssBee last night. AND Desert Pixie! Though sadly, not at the same time.
Sorry about that both of ya!
Photos or it didn’t happen.
I got to see lots and lots of rain….while we were camping.
..and talking of raining on parades:
Those are fun, Van.
I believe this is some kind of camping law of nature.
Van, we didn’t think to take a photo!
Phoenix is awesome in October! My dad and I are having coffee outside this morning.
Another link to chip away your faith in humanity:
This could be fun. I will now post, using only the second words suggested by the kindle. I hope you you can do Monday Monday night Help Help with with the first time in the beginning beginning of of the Storyteller Storyteller Storyteller Storyteller Storyteller Storyteller Storyteller.
And thats where it got stuck in a loop. Maybe I’ll try this again some other time.
You guys have sent some great stuff for DOTF, I tell ya.
Crap joke for the day:
One day two boys were walking through the woods when they saw some rabbit shit. One of the boys said: “What is that?”…”‘They’re smart pills,” said the other boy “Eat them and they’ll make you smarter.”So he ate them and said: “These taste like shit.”…”See,” said the other boy, “you’re already getting smarter.”
I’ll get your terrifying Easter Bunny costume.
I think I’ve become a football widow. Hubby had me call the cable company and have the football channel added just so he could watch the FIFA qualifiers. I guess my Thanksgiving will be spent playing Civ V and Prototype 2
I am reminded of a TV commercial that I can’t find now on the interwebs or I would pu the link here instead of this description.
“Overly attractive Guy finds impossibly sexy girl in the kitchen eating Haagen Dazs. She begins eating it seductively then feeding it to him as she pulls him buy his shirt to the bedroom – there they proceed to madly and passionately strip each other down to underwear whilst feeding one another the ice cream.
Suddenly it is a close-up of the spoon scraping in an empty carton.
Back to shot of Girl, all activity has come to a halt and she has a pout on her face.
Cut to shot of refrigerator as the male underwear model opens the freezer and then rifles about for more Haagen Dazs. Finding none he opens the fridge. Cut to his POV and we see amongst the other things, several Foster lagers.
Cut back to girl on bed as we hear the fridge door shut. She gets a big grin … which fades as we suddenly hear the TV turn on in the other room.
Cut back to guy sitting in chair with a cold Fosters in one hand, lit only by the TV and we hear the sounds of a Football (soccer) match in progress. We can see the scantily clad girl in the hall behind him, backlit by the Kitchen light.
Cut to close up of girl who now delivers the only line in the entire Ad directly into the camera (In a delightful Australian accent) … “shit.”
The whole problem with this is, I’m married to a geek. You know, D & D, chess, Star Wars, Star Trek, etc. He’s not suppose to be into the whole sports thing… well, except maybe hockey. But that’s a Canadian thing, not a jock vs. geek thing. 😉
Civ V it was then…
Ha! Van – your Ad Foo is good!
Frustrating morning, but in the interest of equal time to positivity, we just had a great kid weekend.
I have now successfully recorded and edited my DOTF audio!
Now I need to acquire all of the secret herbs and spices and bake them into this cake.
Yep. It was that attitude that made him VERY unpopular among politicians of both sides in Washington.
I read that book. It was very… Shakespearean Star Wars like
CW: Agents of SHIELD Episode 3
This episode is giving me ‘A Man from UNCLE’ vibe, or for the youngsters out there..Alias…
Hubby just informed me he’s got a student awards ceremony tomorrow night, a board meeting Wednesday night, and is out of town Thursday night. I guess I better make the most of tonight. *sigh*
(I knew about Wednesday & Thursday, but not tomorrow’s thing)
I found my iPod.
I hope you give it a good talking to for going walk about without at least letting you know first.
OK, I guess we’re extended one extra day. Apologies for the delay. Goodnight :all characters in the competition:
Well listening to the latest Escape Artists meta cast and things aren’t looking good.
Will be a shame if Escape Pod and the rest go down the tubes.
While I’ve still got a lot of the older stories saved, I haven’t been able to follow that one for several years. What’s going on with them?
Basically not enough donors donating money every month.
Walk like an Egyptian, unless you are Cleopatra:
This is what Thanksgiving should be like
Books for every US State
Ok, now it’s time to hit the shower.
Your crap joke for the day:
A couple were in their bedroom and the girl says to her boyfriend, “I wish I had bigger boobs”.The boyfriend says “Well what I recommend is to get some toilet tissue and rub it between your boobs for 2 months”…”How will that help to make my boobs bigger?” asks the girlfriend….”Well it worked for your ass” says the boyfriend…
I’m firmly in the camp that non believers can feel awe:
Certainly there is a bit of “label-itis” going on in Oprah’s conversation as well as how it is being reported. I find the idea that “Christians” or “Atheists” are supposed to feel one thing or another because of the labels assigned to them absurd. It’s absurd to think that Atheists can’t feel awe. It’s absurd to think that most Atheists are “pissed-off” because of what Oprah said.
Yup, but hyperbole appears to be de rigueur for a lot of websites.
I question the existence of Oprah.
Yeh. I’m firmly in the camp that Oprah’s comments represent only her own personal beliefs.
I wouldn’t give her any more credit then that.
… or do anything to amplify her noise.
I’m also pondering a Wednesday night release for the final 3 episodes, in tribute to the original schedule (yeah, that’s the only reason…).
I used de rigueur in a sentence.
Time to start wearing a beret and questioning my existence.
I’ll get my coat.
The ennui is more than my fragile soul and black turtleneck can bear.
Questioning one’s existence is what Harrison Ford did in Blader Runner, or was that de Rutger?
Just as long as de rigueur is not joined by de mortis.
If you take a train you may be joined by De Mornay.
Count De Money?
“We call him Similac…”
Who drives a Cadillac
It’s Baby Blue.
All over now.
CW: Once upon a Time in Wonderland – E1
Quite enjoying it so far, although a kick ass Alice boggles the mind.
We have it on the DVR but, with hubby’s funky schedule, I have a feeling it may be awhile before we see it
It’s a good thing they titled this “The Most Mind-Blowingly…” or I just plain wouldn’t have followed the link. And I was thoroughly prepared when my mind was blown away by the content.
The art work was definitely excellent.
A moment of cursing cute.
Dinner has been eaten and dishes are done. Hubby won’t be home for another three or four hours. I predict an evening curled up with a book
CR: Steelheart – Brandon Sanderson
CD: Chimay Yellow
Bow bow. Chika chikaow. 😉
First, this: http://youtu.be/5MQzc6SQk_E
Second, here is our rankings so far of musical guests, best to worst:
1) Miley Cyrus
2) Katy Perry
3) Arcade Fire
That may be the funniest thing Bruce Willis has done since Moonlighting.
I have the joys of the dentist tomorrow , there are going to stick a rubber dam in my mouth to stop my tongue interfering with the drilling.
On past experience I’m going to skip breakfast and wear old clothes, puking is a very real possibility..
You are an inspiration 🙂
I don’t even know how to follow that. Good luck today, Van.
“going to stick a rubber dam in my mouth to stop my tongue interfering with the drilling”
But on a serious note, hand in there Van. I too have had plenty of time to contemplate while being in the chair.
Today is the tomorrow we spoke about yesterday.
I’m thinking of playing hooky today
I’m cleaning the coffee machine. As a result, my house smells like vinagar
You know what Pan? I think it’s movie time
Today’s movie is Witch hunt
Magic and murder connect an actress, a private eye, a senator and a witch in 1950’s Hollywood
It contains nudity and coarse language, so make sure you have the consent of an adult before you follow this play by play
Witch Hunt is also a great Rush tune from Moving Pictures.
A frozen four course meal on a tray
Dynamic senator Larson Crockett
Wait, Dennis Hopper is in this movie? That cranked it up a few nothches
Magic, synonymous with denigration and slaughter
Magic was a fad
Magic is like a Tupperware party
Magic makes people lazy
Last year it was hula hoops. This year, it’s magic
I’ve heard of a prayer circle, but a spell circle?
A row of black and red girls
You must be careful of short men, their auras are compressed
Mind your teeth
He’s with the witch
Moses on a pony
Poor lonely wifey-poos
The devil can put all kinds of mischief in an eye like that
Comedian’s jokes are funny because of magic
The CG isn’t very good in this movie
On an unrelated note, I discovered this little game for the IPad called Triple Town. It’s become a bit of a time sink for me
I love her dress
That wasn’t a marriage, that was a license to shop
You’re nothing but tits and a nice smile
That can’t be good
If God doesn’t destroy Hollywood, then he owes Soddom and Gamorra an apology
This place is as dead as the moon
She made us stop to listen to a building
Two cannibals are eating a clown. One turns to the other and says, does this taste funny to you?
Cool. I like that dress too
She’s lip syncing
Not only is she lip syncing, she’s also gender syncing
Found the nudity
He’s a private security consultant.. A.k.a. A bouncer at a whore house
One minute she’s a fresh faced gal. And the next she’s a manniquin stuck in the window at saks
A man get too complicated, he starts to make mistakes
Would you give a baby a blow torch?
They’re going to burn her at the stake for witchcraft
The man in the bottle has come back
You know what they say about zombies? Strang a shell but very bad lateral movement
Just because they vote for you, they think you owe them
Put any ten people in a room. They may not pick a leader, but they will all pick someone to hate
No more magic in Hollywood
He had a frog in his throat. Literally
I deserve TV dinners and TBirds
In the original the girl didn’t die, but in this remake, she will
A girl could last the winter on a kiss like that
You know, I kind of liked this movie
Now, I have laundry to fold
This is quite amusing
I saw this at Giants Stadium.
I saw it in Atlanta. *raises hand for a Mangan high five*
Fun thing, they had a rail station there under the venue so me and my pal decided to take that route. turns out everyone did and it got really crowded … and late. So that when the doors to the train car opened the concert was just starting. Down in the tunnel the crowd could here the band start playing (I thing it was “Run”) and everyone DID start running. We hit the escalators and they all stopped and the crowd was running up both sides of the escalators.
For those of us who had seen “The Wall” (the movie) it was a magical moment of life imitating art.
Today I bought hubby’s Christmas present. I know it’s early but I wasn’t sure how long it would take to get something shipped from England. I got him a jersey with his name and favourite number for his favourite football team. I’m a good wife :cheerful:
Excellent present, Bunny!
I hope he isn’t a lurker.
Too close to the truth:
Now for some lunch, A trip to the bank and then back to audio production.
Please make sure your lunch break is reflected on your timesheet.
Evo’s latest foray into the spotlight seems to be making the rounds today.
I was giving the cat some antibiotics and managed to squirt some of it in my eye. That’s not an easy feat considering I wear glasses
Google gives so many choices, but I think this is the one:
