Here in my car..oh wait.
I feel safest of all.
I can lock all my doors
The new thread is here! The new thread is here!
New JP film, nice but as the credits rolled I rather underwhelmed by the whole experience.
Get when you can:
That’s all I have to say.
Good morning beautiful, smart, sassy, sexy, wonderful Bunny!
Wit she said, minus anything that comes creepy when said by a bloke.
-I+ o +over
I don’t recall approving the sky getting darker out today.
Erotica fiction really doesn’t do much for me:
Oh and if Erotica wasn’t a big enough clue, it’s NSFW.
Could it be that most guys are visually attuned and most gals are verbally stimulated? I know it is a generic principle but I seem to recall several studies in my sex psych classes.
Supposedly the male gender is much more visual, but I think it always depends on the individual. I know for a fact that mental stimulation is my primary go-to.
LOL. I self edited before because I was going to say the same thing. Both are mental activities though. But yes, give me wit over muscles any day.
Hmmm I suppose they are both mentally supported, yes, but just seeing something isn’t enough mental stimulation for me. I need conversation, emotion, and actual firing of all systems in order to appreciate anything of that nature.
All I need is Van.
Van, is all you need.
Stay on target!
” You don’t have time to think up there. If you think, you’re dead.”
I think if you look at the Darwinian reproductive objectives of men and women, you find a correlation with the type of erotica they seek. Males wanting to deliver as much genetic material as possible and females choosing the best suitors vying for her attention.
There you go Rhettro, just spreading your love around. :)
And now I have hiccups.
Rain be damned, I’m going for a walk.
I wonder if the general consumer will even notice.
Now I want French fries
Some probably will, but others will only freak out when they are made aware of it. I remember when the chicken restaurant that begins with a C changed from peanut oil people freaked out. I had to do the post change consumer study. Yay me.
So is John Hurt the actor.
Today, Bunny theatre presents Annabelle. A movie, in rhy,me
What’s this I see?
There’s no nudity
Dolls through the ages
The screen does say
We’re used by mages
And children at play
Teens talking in a documentary
Describing the doll, and what they did see
The creepy doll was a gift from mom
For a girl’s birthday, not the son
(Ok, you try doing this and see if you do better)
A happy couple sitting in a pew
Pregnant she is, one of the few
Children are a blessing, the neighbour’s say
Until they star talking. It’s just the way
The couple they argue, she just doesn’t see
Children put a cramp on his residency
A giant box his gift to her
A creepy doll, makes us go brrrr
Oh my god, she has many such dolls
All on a shelf, hope none of them falls
Come the night, the wind does blow
We see a doll’s silhouette in the window
Murder most foul the neighbour commits
Hubby goes out, he needs to check it
Yeah I know, I was pushing it for this one
Calling for help, death next door
Blood an carnage on the floor
A strange woman in her house
Whispering quiet like a mouse
The happy couple is attacked, ther is blood everywhere
Luckily for them, the cops are soon there
Is the baby ok? a lot of fuss they make.
As Annabelle the dead girl, holds her namesake
If it come a choice, the mother does say
Save the baby over me, any day
The sewing machine starts, on its own in the night
Hubby holds his bat, they had such a fright
I unplugged he says, all is ok
But the doll has moved, in her spot she did not stay
The chair starts rocking, all by itself.
Wife sees the doll, not on her shelf
Mustard and pickles, the wife does eat.
Pregnant women think it’s a treat
Who keeps opening the door to the kids room
Maybe it’s the doll, announcing their doom
Into the trash, the doll does go
But will it stay? I say, no
Off he goes, gone for a few days
At home with her dolls, mom will stay
Who turned on the stove, a fire will start
No surprise, mom isn’t so smart
Burn baby, burn
Now it’s her turn
The child was born, it’s a girl
Let the bells ring, and banners unfurl
The house is cursed, mommy does say
I won’t go back. Uh uh, no way
Time passes, the child can crawl
Cover in pink, is her wall
Back in church, them and their baby
Pastor as for a photo, is he crazy?
God this woman has a lot of dolls
Covering floors, covering walls
Who shows up in a box on her own
Annabelle the doll, from the trash she was thrown
Mom and baby, asleep in the room
Is that a ghost, walking in the gloom
A book she spies in the store
“The Devil’s Welcome” what’s it for
A series of pictures, found on the stairs
Mean, cruel pictures, how could they dare?
Suddenly she awakes. What’s that noise?
Visions she sees of bad girls and boys
Hubby is home, he doesn’t believe
Wife tries, but he does not see
Night shift has been given to hubby
Leaving mommy alone, with the baby
Wtf? She left the child alone
Bad mam I say, that child is not grown
A crying baby in the basement she hears
But the pram is empty, it’s just her fears
The elevator isn’t working, she cannot go home
Thus the baby, really is alone
A dash for the exit, she runs at full speed
She knows her baby is in need
The devil has marked her with an A
Maybe now hubby will see all is not ok
But wait, the mark is gone with the day
How did this happen, she wants to say
The cop she calls, tell me more
The devil was called. What next is in store?
The disciples of the Ram, that was the cult
Marks on her wall, shows it wasn’t her fault
Back to the book store, research is needed
The book seller helps, ne believe is deep seeded
Keys fall, the pram moves on its own
The pictures were right, danger was shown
Locked in a room, the child is in danger
The doll lifts by a stranger
Call in the holy man, he’ll make things right
Maybe he’ll get rid of the fright
To church, the doll with him he takes
Asleep and harmless, the doll does fake
The radio give the priest a message of doom
God will be coming for him soon
The evil follows him to the church
And about of the doorway he does lurch
About = out
The priest awakes, a soul the demon wants
Not the baby’s, but wifey’ sit taunts
The baby is missing, where did it go
Maybe, it will trade it, for her soul?
The friend is dead, she’s now alone
And like her friend, dead is the phone
A red crayon, across the floor does roll
Writing everywhere, we want her soul
She find the child, dead on the floor
She’s not sure she can take any more
A trick of the mind, the baby’s not dead
Re leaving herself of some of her dread
Hubby to the rescue, will he arrive on time?
Quickly taking stairs two at a time
Take care of Leah, mom says full of tears
It’s the only way to save her, she fears
But no, a last minute save by a friend
She gives her soul, so they don’t have to bend
Six month later and all is well
But where is the doll? No one can tell
There it is, On a shelf in a store
Awaiting someone else, to scare to the core
The movie is done. It was ok I suppose
But I had no thrills or chills, from my spine to my toes
Based on a true thing, is what they say
Bah, I don’t believe, ant won’t any day
I avoid creepy doll films.
No more rhymes now, and I mean it!
Anybody want a legume?
When I’ve recovered from the fumes.
So I wasn’t terribly impressed with the first episode of Dark Matter. It picked up a bit towards the end of the episode, but it was one trope after another.
Writers: let’s get every scifi cliche we can shoe in.
You felt that way too? :)
By the way,
I have to say:
Was a great display,
Of talent from Ry-ah.
Made me nostalgic for Deadpan’s best days.
Is this true?
OK, this was 1000% funnier than I expected, considering that it’s yet another Star Trek-Star Wars thing.
That was funny
So this week I finally finished off the first seasons of Gotham and Forever.
There was lot of mediocrity in Gotham but still interested where S2 will go.
Forever ain’t coming back, hated the narration but was starting to enjoy the episodes as the season drew to a close.
Did you get the feeling that Gotham ended the first season at a weird place? It could’ve just been me.
I also enjoyed Forever, but yes the narration could come off a little pompous at times.
They made some strange decisions in S1 of Gotham.
Today I’m going to blame it on the rain.
It takes a special kind of fucking hate mongering monster to pull off what happened in Charleston yesterday.
Honestly, I’m still trying to sort through the reports and social media opinions to figure out what happened. I have the basic fact, but nothing else.
..and the conspiracy theories have already started. They claiming his skin and hair colour are lighter in his ID photo than on the CCTV footage.
Yeah so are mine… that doesnt mean schizz. People seriously make me ill..
So horrendous and unbelievable
Our species sucks.
In better news – here’s my pick for cover song of the year so far
Yeah, that’s pretty good. :D
Time for a walk!
We finished OITNB. Now we can focus! Next up: Sense8
Im only 6 eps in of Orange. Loving it tho!
I havent gotten past the first ep of Sense8. Snooooooze
I might have to watch episode 2 again.
We’re still working on Peaky Blinders.
Our inability to get through a 6-episode season is a reflection of our limited free time, not the show’s quality. I’m seriously loving this show and the hats they wear. Cillian Murphy has never been better.
Once that’s done, we can consider OITNB season 3, Orphan Black season 2, Vikings season 2, the latest GoT, Arrow, etc.
And Sense8. I still believe in the Wachowskis.
We’re caught up on “The Americans,” “Homeland” and “GOT.” Currently rewatching season one of “True Detective.”

I don’t understand people. Hubby’s boss came to him and asked him to go to New Orleans… tomorrow. This would have been a week long trip. Now we will see what happens since hubby said no. One day was just too short of notice for a trip that far and that long.
That is nuts.
Far too humid a day to stand outside for an hour to listen to the CEO and film a commercial clip. If I can find it this weekend, I’ll share the youtube link (if anyone is interested)
Did you get a speaking role? Are you the next Flo?
No and Wrong company :)

Season 5 cocaine infused Pam might be my fav Archer character ever
Sense8 E1 yassss
That truly confounds me. Huh!
Who tokes up at a Tim McGraw concert, during a country version of Tiny Dancer??!! geez. Weird.
Although times are changing as far as that goes. I saw Rush last month and someone lit up in the row in front of us. The people next to them went ballistic and insisted they put it out. Then the guy behind me leaned past me and asked the guy that lit up if he could have the joint because it would otherwise go to waste. Then the people next to him went ballistic. Crazy.
Yup. You dont need a “reason” to smoke anymore.
In a different musical genre… I was excited to begin “Birth, Life, Death, Metallica”, which is billed as a no-holds-barred account of the band’s early days. I had about 15 different “oh please” moments in the first chapter alone, which calls the Black Album “uncompromising” and claims that the band is still pushing the musical envelope today.
Let’s hope the gushing and bullshit stop when the book finally starts in on their actual Bay Area early days with Mustaine.
I may have thrown up more than a little in my mouth… everyone knows that the Black Album in the Mason-Dixon line of their catalog.
The book cited that Lou Reed travesty as one of their recent bold moves. I will agree that it was “decidedly uncommercial.”
“bold” is not synonymous with “good”
“I am the table!”
But they try to interchange Bold with Spicy…. why not other things?
All New Spicy Metallica! Featuring:
Sad But Vindaloo.

I was so trying to think of something for Four Horsemen…
Gyro of the Day.
Today is Friday and you know what that means? I clean the washroom! I know, you are all quivering with excitement over that news.
We really are! (We remember what you told us about washroom cleaning.)
What, that I do it sock and shirtless? It’s true.
ditto, here is an amusing sum up of the Witcher games. Spoils 1 & 2, but not too bad for three.
I’ve done the breakfast dishes, thrown in a load of laundry, and cleaned the washroom and it’s not even eight o’clock.
I was timing you, by the way.
Did I get above the benchmark?
Yes. By 4 minutes
People develope emotional attachments to the strangest of things:
Yeah, I saw some of your stuff in the basement…
“Yeah, I saw some of your stuff in the basement…”
The start of many a horror movie.
What if your pet is a replicant?
It’s going to get retired.
Time to step away from the desk.
Must put gas in my car, then lunch with my Boo.
So, while I like Courtney Barnett’s music, am I the only one that is reminded of Sheryl Crow?
I had to look her up on Spotify.
Some of Crowe’s early stuff I can see where you are coming from.
I hadn’t made that connection, but boy do I love Courtney!
“SAD BUT VINDALOO”
Good Gracious Me!
On ordering a new electrical item, my CC was initially refused, when I phoned the company they said it was because I had used my desktop rather than the laptop.
Thing is, both my laptop and desktop use go through the same router which should only show one IP address on the internet…so WTF!
I thought IP addresses were unique to individual computers, and not to the routers.
Partly. They are only unique within the network they are on. The IPs can get translated as messages get sent to different networks, which is something that routers and gateways do.
I think Ill keep you
Big Brother is watching you!
Can’t touch my packet.
“North Korea: Country Claims It Has Drug That Can Prevent and Cure MERS, Ebola, SARS and AIDS”
Yeah, it’s called ‘death’
Ok any suggestions for curing an overheating laptop?
It’s not the HD, which although 3 years old is not overheating according to the SMART data.
I suspect the fans are no longer cooling the CPU+GPU properly. the vents in the laptop not blocked, and I’ve tried blowing air through then to shift dust.
Oh and that moment of despair when you see tweets from Americans claiming Sally Ride was the first Woman in space..that.
I assure you that that kind of ignorance doesnt just reside here but yeah, I get your point
Commies don’t count! ‘Murica!
One of the tweets was from a Repulican politician who should have known better.
Who? I wanna share in the fun
@RepDelBene: 32 years ago #OTD, Sally Ride broke one of the highest glass ceilings by becoming the first women in space. #WomenSucceed.
Also, at least they arent all ignorant…
Rep. Derek Kilmer @RepDerekKilmer Jun 18
#OTD Sally Ride became the 1st American woman in space – we should continue to lead the way in #space exploration.
Although the last section is laughable. ‘We’ havent lead in a long time
I’m impressed that one person can become the first women in space.
That’s one small step for woman, one giant leap for women..
Every reputable and un-reputable news source – “The Charleston killings were clearly a hate crime”
Fox News – “We cant say for sure why this happened but religion is under attack!!!”
Making a parody of “Fox News” is like making a parody of “The Enquirer.”
I’m not sure that The Enquirer hasnt broken more true stories than Fox…
CP: Cool for Cats – Squeeze
Good afternoon Pan.
We saw Kingsman last night. It was a fun movie.
Tonight, we are having people over for gaming.
I saw something about you and hubby each buying new games?
Yup. I got Terra Mystica and he got Race for the Galaxy.
We might try Race for the Galaxy tonight if we have time.
I get Dark Matter, it’s Blakes 7 with better SfX and less interesting characters.
Very much less interesting characters.
Commies, they ain’t all bad:
Enjoyed the first episode of Killjoys, that is all.
I’m looking forward to seeing it.
And now the F*n washing machine has broke.
Got an email from Ello stating that they now have an app available.
Lost the password and not sure I can be bothered to install it.
I’ve heard this before in a couple other places, but what do you guys think about the Star Wars Ring Theory? Does that excuse any problems you might find with the movies?
I love that the author cites Red Letter Media as a source. I only made it to the end of page 1 (of 9!? On the internet?), but I remain skeptical.
Speaking of New Horizons, we visited Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff this evening! Cool place.
We *also* did Bearizona today, also a very cool place. Desert Pixie has put together a fun FD weekend.
Well hello longest day of the year.
Winter is coming.
So my interest in rewatching Blakes 7 has been rekindled by the discovery of this podcast:
I think I’m developing a retro crush on Jenna.
Happy Daddy’s day to all the daddy Panites
I’ve added my fourth conquest in Witcher 3. We did it on a life sized stuffed unicorn.
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and daughters and sons.

Jim’ll paint it.
With some of those I don’t know whether it’s more disturbing that people thought of the idea or that he painted it so well. Others are just plain brilliant.
“Americans can and should denounce the racist and gun-crazed culture that shamefully resulted in nine corpses in Charleston this week, but they also need to dig deeper. At the core of all of this dysfunction is an abandonment of reason.”
Today is the day for a French romcom:
That was fun.
Went grocery shopping this morning. Now time to do kitty litter and garbage.
CW: True Detective S2E1
Hell yeah baby.
Its gotten shit reviews this year. Hopefully thats not the case
Well the lightning didn’t strike twice but I enjoyed the first episode.
Looking so forward!
Um… hey JacK?
Day 2 is a fantastic lineup also.
Shall we book you a room at Casa Manglock for the weekend, Lo??
If any other day but Halloween I would have probably highly considered it.
They will lure you to their parlour one of these decades…

He must have gnawed through the ropes.
A friend of mine went to Australia and he brought me back gifts.
Of course, boomerangs… but also this interesting item that I didn’t even know existed… and yet now I own one.
I’m curious to see it in person. Are you going to keep your dice in it?
I do not wish to touch it. It is made of scrotum.
You never wear leather?
I do not wear anything leather…
So for non FBers, the lump on my heel is a rather large bone spur.
So going to need to see a specialist to see if it needs an op.
That’s good news, even if it is inconvenient. I’m glad it isn’t something worse. :)

Hannibal got cancelled, bah!
Boo. Poor Gillian
Well she still has x-files. And a new season of ‘The fall’ to shoot.
And gallons of me in her honor.
You had better come with cookie dough chunks.
OH! VAN! GAWDDD bless you
Still, not a good idea to piss off Hannibal. Someone is going to get their ass chewed.
Indeed, Swamp ass and Scrotums in Swamp Ass are gross.
Welcome to Phoenix this June.
For the record: She’s not talking about me.
To the best of my knowledge….
Kitty has another vet appointment later this morning. Then I have a dentist appointment this afternoon. This is both of our lucky, lucky, day.

Apparently James Horner died in a plane crash yesterday.
Admittedly I had to look him up. Sad.
Also RIP Dick Van Patten
86 was not enough
His greatest role was the “Smells Like Nirvana” video.
Weird Al sings that at all of his concerts apparently… it’s a big hit.
I thought that was Strother Martin in Sssssss.
Your new official Marvel Spiderman has been cast…
Yeah, I’m tired of Spiderman and Hulk reboots :(
This isnt a reboot. This character will be incorporated into the Marvel universe films and I dont believe they will be doing a reboot film.
Plus they only rebboted Hulk once… so I dunno
I’m a little tired of Spidey. I’d like to see some different characters get their chance on screen.
ROM: Spaceknight being the most desirable.
Understood but being able to see Spiderman and the Avengers together in film finally is really what its all about. Im all for a ROM as well
Agreed. I wish Marvel had movie rights back for all their characters.
The Spider-Man problem as I see it: of 5 films for their most beloved character, only 1 was really any good (The Doc Ock movie). The rest are bad-to-ok-at-best.
I’d love to see them get him right.
Ditto for the Hulk. He’s been well-used in the Avengers movies, but otherwise, his film career is pretty meh.
I’m one of the ones who defends the Ang Lee film.. but whatev. I also think the first Spidey was a good film. The 2nd was a classic, and the 3rd and the 2 reeboots were shat. But none of these were Marvel’s fault. They probably watched on in horror as we did.
I liked the Ang Lee film even though it was probably too long. The real problem is that it wasn’t what a lot of the fans wanted, so it suffered from misplaced expectations. And I agree about the Spidey movies.
I generally liked both Hulk films, but agree the Avengers versions where best.
I would rate the first Spiderman movie really good, the second one almost perfect (except for the botched heroic powers being linked to confidence, bah). The third one was a stinker.
The first reboot was actually not so bad, just tainted by being the second origin story in four movies. The last one was shit.
ditto that’s one reason I defend it. It wasnt Hulk smash all time and that was fine with me. The comic is closer to that one. Was anyway.
I was so onboard with a gifted filmmaker like Ang Lee taking a philosophical, psychological approach to the Hulk. Such rich source material! Unfortunately, I just found his movie dull, with no payoffs in depth or action.
The best pure Hulk movie to this day, IMHO, is the original Bill Bixby/Lou Ferigno pilot. No really! It was actually pretty good.
Just stop there. Don’t watch the series. Don’t watch the one where he meets Thor. Just don’t. Leave that in your childhood.
I’m too tired to care.
I own that one… the Thor special that is. It. Is. Remarkable.
Well there is that:
Can’t wait to watch
Don’t buy Seagate the data says:
That has been my experience as well. Even before 2014, they had a higher failure rate than their competitors. I’ve stopped buying from Seagate all together.
It’s all SSD’s now.
Could be STDs I guess
Still too expensive for price per gigabyte.
If I had populated my NAS with SSDs of the same size as the HDDs I have installed now it would have about 4 times the cost.
Actually more, since I would have had to buy a more expensive NAS enclosure as SSDs top out at 1 terabyte so would have needed to install 4x1TB SSDs for the same amount of storage as I have now (2x 2TB HDDs).
Well affordable ones anyway.
And when that happens, I’ll switch. Right now, it isn’t worth it to me.
One more OitNB to go. Been a subtly great season so far. Up til the last 3 where le shit gets le real
So loved it. My heart belongs to Big Boo and my pants belong to Alex.
Still have to finish Sense8.
We are loving that one big time
Oh Alex… Alex Alex Alex…
Oh, Alex, you’re so fine. You’re so fine, you blow Lo’s mind! Oh, Alex!
Jurassic World! Key syllable: “ass”
Thats too bad.
It’s not the worst movie ever made. It’s not even the worst JP movie. It’s just a big “meh.”
In a way that’s actually worse

It is Bronson, yes.
Jesus… it took me all this time to realize that Tim Russ (who played Tuvok on Voyager) was the “We aint found shit!” trooper in Spaceballs

peaky Blinders is set in Birmingham not London.
Correct. I really just wanted to say, “more Cockney than I can handle.”
CW: Florence and the Machine performing at Glastonbury.
Thankfully watching it via iplayer means I can avoid the crowds and mud.
But mud and Glastonbury are synonomous
Very true, but for Glastonbury I choose voyourism.
how is the show? I think she would be great to see Live.
Did u see Courtney Barnett?
Not yet, I’ll check iplayer later.
Who is watching Deutschland 83? Van?
Never heard of it.
Looks interesting from the IMDB entry.
Cool seeing the Rhettros tonight at the Technorama Pool Party!
Did you find them in the media corner?
Have you listened to the podcast?
That has nothing to do with nothing
It everything to do with everything.
And the Rhettros were glad to see Jack and several other old friends. :)
The next arms race will be between drone and gun makers:
Have an amazing birthday, EssBee!

That IS what she said!
Happy EssBee Day!
RIP Chris Squire of Yes. Possibly the greatest pick bassist of all time.

This is an interesting article that was written by Orange County’s right wing newspaper. It is about my old alma mater and the fall of its mascot and symbols.
Savanna High Rebels. The Confederate Flag and Johnny Rebel were campus staples until just recently.
Happy Birthday weekend, EssBee!
Interesting, mostly unsurprising list.
And with that, I’m off to bed. Goodnight :Cyberpunk:
Crap prog rock joke:
How can you tell a prog rock band has sold out?
More than one track on an album.

Hubby has another late night. But, on a happy note, he will be home for lunch for a change.
CW: Humans E3
Really digging this show.
Hubby and I had a long talk on the weekend. I don’t want to jinx it but, now that we don’t have kitty , there is a better than average chance he might make it out to the meetup/wedding next year. Part of it will depend upon when it is and if he can get a couple of days off.
Cool that he may now come and the Deadpan crew, not cool on the why.

We are late to the party, but now that we finished (and adored) Sense8 we are getting into Daredevil.
We quite liked Daredevil. Haven’t watched Sense8 yet.
Daredevil may be my fav Marvel property so far. It is a classic. I cant tell you how much I adore this show
According to the thermostat it’s 27C in my house. I wonder how much it would cost to put air conditioning in the house.

Old TVs don’t make good computer monitors…who knew?
My TRS-80 begs to differ.
Apparently, the Millenials nowadays no longer use the word, cool.
It is now an acronym for the following:
They are not cool for saying the cool kids are losers
Oh I’m cool then.
Cringing Over Online Lameness.
Hubby left to attend the high school grad. I think I’m going to sneak out and get a donair for my dinner, then watch Penny Dreadful.
I have my do air and I cracked open a Grizzly Paw Red IPA. Let the feasting begin.

All this time to form the man I became.
The sun in my hand becomes my despair.
Ah, the summer dance begins. Where hubby is (mostly) home during the days, so we need to figure out how to do his relaxing and my working without getting in each other’s way.

Another Black church burned down in South Carolina. This fucking country needs to rally around the rights of minorities like it did with gay rights. Seriously wtf.
Also good on the OK supreme court for ruling that Ten Commandments stature need to come down. Now can they take down that dumb ass satanic one too?
And while we’re at it, let’s make education and mental illness the top priorities of this generation.
Agreed. I think the more equality happens the more these SHOULD fall in line.
I thought this church fire was caused by lightning strike, no?
funny, i just saw this. really like.

Its been a good day, Avs. A good day.
They didn’t even have to fire their GM.
I got ta say…
Well, finally back from vacation. Hope I didn’t miss any excitement…
Oh Phil Kessel… oh ditto…
Actually, I’m good with the trade. The team needs some serious re-building.
STEVE DOWNIE!!!!! RHETT!!!!! STEVE DOWNIE!!!
That’s kind of hilarious. LOL
Youll get one year and 40 games out of him. lol
Which, to be fair, will be an awesome year and 40 games!
Why is it hilarious? Im kinda excited about it
Its a running gag.
Not much happened Ed. Normal ole America. There are only 14 Repub candidates for prez!
As with the majority of declared candidates, most of them are just comic relief.
I’m curious to see who will get Ed’s support. I’m frightened to see who the majority rallies behind.
Honestly whichever party wins, we lose.
And thats how jaded Ive become
I’m thinking Donald will be pulling out pretty quickly
That’s what Daisy… never mind.
What is he, crazy???
I mean. . . excellent! I am honestly very happy to have him back on the Coyotes.
He cant. Not with Downie on the team now. THATS NOT TRUE! THATS IMPOSSIBLE!
Rhetts head will now explode
I assume the reason he’s been so quiet is that reality has sunk in…
I’m quiet because work has been intense for the last few weeks. Lots of deadlines, but lots of happy clients. My head has asploded. It would be interesting if the team gets renamed “The Phoenix Coyotes.”
The more happy clients I have, the more my right arm hurts
You need to learn to be ambidextrous
My righty is tighty but my lefty is loosey
I hope this has a happy ending.
Well, mildly amusing if nothing else
Just a FYI, I’ll probably be intermittent over the summer. Hubby time takes precedent.
Well I now have 11 days off.
Plans have fallen through so won’t be going anywhere non local.
Still no work for 11 days!!!!!!!!
I need to buy a cocktail
Make and some booze..just saying.
11 days of nothing sounds incredible.
I’m sure they will be time to catch a few flicks, the new Terminator tomorrow at least.
I recall them saying that a D- is actually their worst rating, because anything that gets an F is usually schlocky enough to be at least interesting or memorable.
Right. Like the series finale of Dexter
This time, I’m probably going to vote for the candidate that offers the highest percentage of non-lying, non-pandering, non-fear mongering in their campaign. I may finally have to do a write in for Mickey Mouse this time around…
“If you are Scottish lord then I am Mickey Mouse!”
“non-lying, non-pandering, non-fear mongering in their campaign”
I fear that at best, you’ll be singing this Meat Loaf song.
Enjoyed the new Terminator flick.
Yes the trailer spoilt the twist.
You will look for a blue box in vain.
They over use the terminator Muzak with Arnie.
Whats the blue box?
Think of a certain actor who appears in the film.
Today is the start of the Calgary Stampede. I’ll watch the parade on TV this morning, other than that, I refuse to acknowledge the event.
I’m refusing to acknowledge the weather.
Today’s retro game is Xenophobe.
The arcade game is bloody hard.
I may dig out my Lynx and play it on there instead as I can get further on that than in the arcade.
I rediscovered that one a few years back on MAME. I don’t think I could get past the first level.
In today’s geezer news:
Back to the Future was released 30 years ago today. The retro scenes of the 50s in this 80s movie are now retro-retro.
Crap joke for the day:
The Lone Ranger and Tonto were camping in the wilderness. After they got their tent set up, both men fell sound asleep. Some hours later, Tonto wakes the Lone Ranger and says,”‘Kemo Sabe, look towards sky, what you see?”
The Lone Ranger replies, “I see millions of stars.”
“What that tell you?” asked Tonto.
The Lone Ranger ponders for aminute then says, “Astronomically-speaking, it tells me there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo. Time-wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three in the morning. Theologically,the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you,Tonto?”
“You dumber than buffalo… It mean someone stole tent.”
Saving people’s lives, one holiday at a time.
My crap joke for the morning
Did you hear abou the guy who visited the Dali Lama and orders a pizza? He said, “can you make me ONE with everything?”
OMFG look at that fucking hipster. Im on Japan’s side here.
I’m totally on the side that created motherfucking VOLTRON!
Form blazing sword!
Hipsterbot! Grow mangy beard!

I’m thinking of getting a PS4 this week, just wondering if I should wait for the new 1TB model or just go for the standard and upgrade down the line.
A lot of the newer games take up a lot of space: 40-60 GB. But, you can always upload your saves to the PSN cloud and delete the game if you need the space. I also read somewhere about being able to backup to an external drive.
Doubling the available drive is nice, but not super important imo. It depends on how much admin you will want to do in the future: a little bit, or a little bit more.
I’m totally digging the PS4, the Xbox One on the other hand is barely being used. Looking forward to getting the new Batman game today for the PS4.
Roll up, roll up, a feeling old moment just happened:
So unpacked my Atari Lynx to play some Xenophobe and the receipt fell out. I bought the ‘handheld’ on the 3rd May 1990.
It still looks brand new, still works and is over 25 years old.
wTF ! #oldfart
Oooooh! S2 of Knights of Sidonia has popped up
On UK Netflix.
Time to start watching S2. S1 was fun.
Dune is 50 years old.
..and I still haven’t read it.
Well worth reading. I’d stop after that book and not bother with the sequels.
But, probably truth…
Heretics of Dune?
CD: New Belgium’s Snapshot. It’s a wheat beer in a can. It’s a lot like Blue Moon, but more citrusy, on the lemon/grapefruit side. I like it. Very refreshing on a hot day.
Oh yeah. This is a good one. Not a fan of wheat really but this is, as you say, a hot day killer. Its nice. You try the Boulevard Radler yet?
Not yet. I usually just mix my own.
Trying the reverse sear for the first time on some steaks tonight.
How did reverse sear work out?
Very good. I’m not used to it, so I over cooked the steaks just a bit.

The future holds nothing else but confrontation.

Considering we’re in the midst of the 100th Anniversary of the Great War I’ve taken it upon myself to dork out on the subject. This month its Dan Carlin’s magnum opus 25 hour, 6 part Hardcore History podcast “Blueprint for Armageddon”. ‘
Also, just finished the BBC doc “Churchill’s First World War”. Both are recommended.
carry on .
And listening to Franz Ferdinand music on repeat?
Historically relevant humour ftw!
It started in 1914 and your Lot didn’t come to the party till 1917.
Remind me not to invite you to the WWI museum here
Just tweaking Lo’s nose.
Jesus Van… I said IN THE MIDST and I said NOTHING about America. Don’t pick a fight about history with someone with a History Degree. Because by god as worthless as that degree was, any chance to use it would be golden.
You tweak mine, I break yours. Come on Fritz!
Don’t make me go all archduke on your ass.
Pah! A mere figurehead in this game of Kaisers and Tsars!
Damn that Peaky Blinders! Fuckin’ Eh! Great season 2!!!
CW: Stitchers Ep 2
Despite some lackluster reviews, I’m enjoying the concept and some of the actors. Emma Ishta is bugging me, but I get to see some of my favorite quirky syfy actresses Allison Scagliotti and Salli Richardson-Whitfield. Really enjoying the dialogue they’ve written with Cameron. I’ll keep watching for a bit more.
Man the Foo Fighters have been making music for 20 years now. While not a real big fan, I can certainly appreciate that they are probably the last great real rock band.
From all I’ve ever seen or read of Kurt Cobain, he probably would have hated everything about them.
Still, credit where it’s due. I love the first album, and there have been plenty of quality songs since then. And you’re right – – is there another “rock” band out there that’s going to fill arenas.
That first album is a clinic on how to make a one man record.
Fight Club 4 Kids.
Boy, I dont know weather to go to downtown Denver, Boulder, or the mountains today. Boy, first world problems to the max.
We’re going to see if we can see the biggest shell from here
Personally I didn’t think it was too spectacular, but some people think bigger is better.
Must not grammar nazi….must not grammar nazi…
They’re there for effect, sir.
CD: Coop Ale Works’s Native Amber. Nothing remarkable. On the other hand, for a red, it is not bitter or over-hopped. It has a nice malt flavor, and is very drinkable. I like it.
Ambers are definitely hit or miss
Keep an I out for their F5 IPA. I remember it being excellent.
And I guess I forgot: Happy 4th of July!
Watching an episode of Defiance in HD is a rather a dispiriting experience.
Speaking if WWI, We have watched all available episodes of Peaky Blinder (see mt fucking awesome review above) amd Tommy Shelby was a Tunneler in WWI, and he tunnelled into France. The show makes a big deal of the importance of thw role of the Tunneller in WWI. I know nothing about it- were Americans given that role? Im guessing it was similar to digging trenches?
So, I will take some of LoPan’s History Wisdom for $600, please Alex.
Good read if not full of ads.
Far as I know, US were too late to the ‘party’. Even if they weren’t I highly doubt they would have accepted the role at the time
Good videos on this site. A shame the whole Somme documentary they’re from is unavailable.
Regarding the earlier “Dune” discussion:
If you are at a point in your life when you can handle a SF epic, then this is a must-read. Once done, you’ll be tempted to pore through all of the sequels, but just don’t. The first book is all you need.
Speaking of SF required reading. . . I have two (2!!) Neuromancer links for ya.

I don’t know if you recall but one of our narrators went missing last year. Her body has just been found…
The thing about this is Josh (the husband/suspect) and my Boo are close friend. He (and others) would go over to Boo’s house every Sunday for gaming
That is awful news. :( I hope Boo’s friend isn’t involved.
Wow! That is terrible.
This should have been replied to Jacks post. Sorry to hear that Bunny
Old film playing on the TV:
So tonight’s tipple was a shot of Advocaat, a shot of a cheap.malibu clone, lemonade and a few drops of lime juice.
Went down nicely with the salted pretzels…
I’m posting this because I think some people here will dig it. The song is commercial, but super catchy and mildly reminiscent of old Motley Crue. That’s the only reason I’m posting it! You keep your creepy assumptions to yourself now.
(Band-Maid is possibly the worst band name pun of all time.)
No, no – – “Volcano Girls” -era Veruca Salt. That’s a closer comparison.
I feel really really really really really really dirty.
You’re just breaking new gate. (???)
History: History may repeat itself, but you definitely will.
Every time Channing Tatum was onscreen, I could only think of Big McLargehuge/Blast Hardcheese/Punch Rockgroin from Space Mutiny. The screen presence is eerily similar.
Yeah, your movie is pretty much doomed, at this point.
Are you saying you don’t love dogs?
Actually, Channing Tatum was really good in
I do love the way animation can pull on the heart strings the way live action cannot do these days.
I’m looking at you Inside Out, that was great.
Best movie Pixar has done in quite a while.
I liked that there was tension without a villain.
Another horse died at Stampede over the weekend. My favourite quote about it, “It’s a sport, you have to expect things to happen and get hurt.”
My Boo and her partner are off to court this morning to watch the preliminary hearing of their friend. It’s so weird being this close to a crime like that.
Hubby and I caught up on some TV over the weekend. We watched the first three episodes of both Dark Matter and Killjoys. Killjoys has potential. Dark Matter gets one more episode of a chance to wow me or it’ll get dropped from our queue
Last night’s documentary was Part 1 of BBC’s “The forgotten soldiers of World War One” which chronicles the 4 million Africans, Asians, and Indians that were drug into the war via their respective empires. So far its excellent and oddly poignant today.
