Ironman 3 is looking good:
Well, alrighty then.
Always fun, but what about Black Widow #1?!
Agreed. I felt they should have done at least a Black Widow/Hawkeye (maybe Kosovo) film instead of crappy Iron Man 2.
We didn’t hate Iron Man 2, but yes.
Wait so they ARE going the Extremis storyline route? God I’m afraid this is going to be soooo heavy handed. I hope Im wrong.
His hand is encased in steel so, yeah…
Pixie, yes, Homeland is good!
Woke up to six inches of snow on the ground. Bleh.
Good morning deadpan. We woke up to darkness. I need to sleep in more often methinks.
Usually up at 5am. I get more dark then daylight once October hits.
I am also getting up at 5am. The wife goes to work early and my favorite daughter starts school at 7 . Me? I work at home so I’m still in my jammies when they leave 🙂
Sounds like me. I watched hubby go out in the snow and cold today while I was nice and warm on my long commute across the hall.
Re: Han Solo shot first. It was mentioned in another podcast that Han did not shoot first. Han Solo shot. Greedo didn’t have time to get a shot off at all.
I remember watching the first straw wars many many time. Han always shot first which is what caused Greedo to miss in the first place. Han is a bad guy at the onset of the first movie which is what makes his actions later in the movie so heroic. To change the story and make him into a good guy at the start is just silly.
My first straw wars involved hay.
Be warned. I, for one, plan to haunt the DP boards long after episode 288 airs. Also plan to continue visiting Arizona regularly.
I agree with the former, alas the latter is open to question (Doctors and all that jazz) and not assuming a welcome of course.
I can’t believe we’re getting to the point where all this might come to an end. An end of an era. Deadpan will never die even if it becomes two gross 🙂

but it’s Captain Kirk!
Captain Kirk was here in Calgary. I didn’t see him but my Boo was not impressed. He, and his handlers were jerks.
Well, I have to go out into the yuck. My Boo is taking her car in to get the back window replaced. I get the lucky job of driving her home, then taking her back once it’s done. I’m not happy. It’s a veritable blizzard out there.
Did I miss this tribute to our favorite Elder god?
You did but that’s ok because the more this link is posted, the better life is.
At the cinema, waiting for this film to start:
Ooh, let us know how it is, Van.
KRISTEN STEWART BOOBS AND HAND JOBS!!!!!
Least that;s what I hear…
An attempted threesome as well..
Bit of a strange movie, my main problem is the actor who plays the writer is just not as convincing in the role as he was in Control.
Do they try and adapt the book? Or is it more of “here’s what happened while he was telling what was happening while he was writing the book…”?
Well judging. From the plot synopsis (never read the book…see previous comment about boring router name) they did indeed make a valiant attempt in this adaption
I liked Don Adams in Control.
Ok, that was not fun. I even had to park on the street as I can’t get the car up the driveway there’s so much snow.
HAY! Don’t make fun of my typo lol
I don’t know my quid from my pounds….
same thing, spelled different
I hatedhatedhated Iron Man 2, but liked the first enough to give 3 a fair shot.
I lovedlovedloved the book “On the Road”, which I read while I was on the road as a 20-year-old, road-tripping across the American south and mostly west. I don’t recall Kristen Stewart’s boobs in the book, but it’s been a few years.
I sincerely hope that the end of the recorded podcast does not mean the end of everything we’ve created together. I daresay Deadpan is bigger than 288 mp3s, and the laughs and bonds should continue into the future.
OK, you can start the slow clap now.
Boobs AND handjobs. And no, I dont recall a character in the book like that either.
I liked Iron Man 2, but then I also liked Captain America.
Other things I might like:
Stepping on tacks. Eating raw liver. Talking with telemarketers.
Me too, Rhettro!
You can always blog weekly 🙂 I’m sure the comments will continue with or without a podcast.

“The only exception I have to have an abortion is in the case of the life of the mother. I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize life is that gift from God.

Maybe the DP cat owning contingent can wade in:
Our N of one says that study is absolutely accurate. Our Crucita (RIP) did not play.
“N of one”?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
My Reeny is a tortise shell. I’m sure I’ve made it clear how neurotic she is. Most of my friends cal her evil. The vet calls her meany Reeny. Of the cats I’ve owned, she is the hardest to please. I wouldn’t trade her for the world. :heart:
My good friend has a torty. I don’t find her any more aloof than other cats. She is extremely loving, but she’s skittish around strangers. Of course I’ve had all kinds of cats growing up and have never found their coloring effects their personality. More how early I/my friend got them and how they were treated before then.
Assassin’s Creed Revelations had some first person content in it. I couldn’t handle it. Hubby likes to play first person shooters, I can’t watch him play for more than a few minutes at a time. However, third person, no mater how crazy the camera gets, I can handle. Strange I know but… *shrug*
The following link will not restore your faith in human nature:
Er, is it ashly? 🙂
I wish first person games didn’t give me motion sickness. I really want to play dishonored.
A friend is livestream recording his actions in Dishonored for me so I can see if I can handle it. There are a few moments, but most of the time you don’t get shaky cam.
Ok, too many conversations going at one time.
For gaming reply, look in the cat conversation. sheesh. :silly:
Has anybody played XCom yet? Would I enjoy it?
I think I’ll download the demo and give it a try.
I did, back in 1994.
Sorry Rhett, I meant the new one XCOM: Enemy Unknown
Sorry Bunny: I knew what you meant. 😉
Darn, it’s supposed to snow tomorrow and Friday.
Wait, I don’t care, because I’m going to Hawaii tomorrow!
Can I come? The last two days we’ve had a ton of snow fall.
While I know snow is not unusual in Canada, this much this soon is. My snow tires aren’t scheduled to go on for another two weeks.

Microsoft 8 has this very surreal commercial here in Canada. I’ve been looking for it to show but all I can find are the American ones. How strange is that?
The Gizmodo reviewer is disappointed:
I found a shortened version of it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n35FfnocuII. The ones they show here have a longer time with the black and white dancers.

Just finished the demo of XCom: Enemy Unknown.
I think I’ll just have to get this game. Let’s see, what is my Steam password? Oh yeah, password 😉
/shakes fist at the world
Steam is having site issues. It seems to be affecting my purchase of the game. Boo
Should I ask why?
If it’s any consolation Van, I won’t be playing it right away. Steam is having issues and I got a message that they are not sure if my payment went through or not. Until til they know, I can’t download it. My bank won’t show the transaction for a day or two so *shrug*.
*sigh* Now Steam is saying it doesn’t have my credit card info and I need to re-enter it. I’m stopping here and sent them a note. I think I’m not going to be able to play XCOM until I hear back from Steam. Damn
XCOM is on my buy list.
Those were cute
Am I here? Are any of us really here?
I sure hope so.
Here’s a neat link. I didn’t see any Game of Thrones spoilers, but there are apparently some in the maps. View with caution.
On games: we watched the Assassin’s Creed III trailer last night. Apparently, there were highly skilled ninjas in hoodies during the American Revolutionary War.
AC3 is high on my must play list. It’s preordered and I will get it next week. Can’t wait.
Whose to say their weren’t ninjas, with their hiding shadows and all that? Maybe no one noticed?
I always found it funny in the AC Games. At many points you are suppose to hide by blending in with the crowds. I could never figure out how that worked when I was taller thank anybody and my outfit was sooooo different from anybody else’s you’d think I’d be really easy to spot, but no… those looking for me were very stupid “that person who is taller and dressed different from anybody else can’t be who we are looking for. The person we want wouldn’t stand with other people, oh no.” :cheerful:

Onion-y as it would seem, this article is actually reporting the truth. This is really going to happen soon at Denny’s.

Fun comment seen: “Can’t wait for the Game of Thrones menu with House Bolton’s skinless chicken.”
Christmas is going to be a little early here in Bunnytown. I usually make a big deal out of it. Around the 15th of December My Boo and her fiancee come over. We decorate the house and tree. We make gingerbread cookies and decorate those too. My in-laws are coming in to town the week before so we’ve decided to move the festivities to then. It just feels wrong setting up the house that early.
We’re in a similar boat here. My son is in the Army and has been stationed in South Korea for the last 2 years. He ships home in early December and will be stopping here at some point (can’t expect him to make any plans or anything). So we will be having Christmas whenever he happens to be here rather than the prescribed day.
I see how it is. Snow and freezy here, EssBee warm and toasty in Hawaii. Yous owes me an island brew, lady 🙂
Mmmmmmm. An island brewed Lady!

I’m rather undecided on whether to upgrade to Windows 8.
Windows 7 works nicely on my netbook and desktop, and even though the upgrade is relatively cheap I’m not sure I want the hassle of getting things working again after the upgrade.
Wait, XP isnt valid anymore?
It’s valid it just won’t be supported. Microsoft adopted a 2 version rule quite some time ago. That means only the previous 2 versions will get patched and maintained. So, XP is getting “dropped” due to the release of Windows 8.
You can keep using XP, but you can expect more security problems now that it isn’t supported anymore.
Well monetarily I have no choice. Thankfully I have Vista on my other machine. Wait…
Windows 8 isn’t wowing me over its feature set, but given its relative cheap upgrade cost ($40) I will at least upgrade one of my two XP machines. The 64bit version of Windows 7 is doing fine on my laptop and I don’t plan on upgrading it.
I need an inspirational “go get em” mix tape/CD. Anyone want to make one for me? If not, give me suggestions for tunes. Thank you!!!!
ditto and I are so over each other. If anybody wants an EBF partner, let me know. :happy:

Ha! I’ve moved on. I have a new buddy already.
which in no way implies I don’t want anybody else. I’m open to multiple partners 😉

I’ve been up since 3 a.m. Maui time. Eeek! The sun’s about to come up.
Awesome. Where in Maui are you staying?
Well, this is a very long story, but I’m staying at my brother’s house in Kihei. Dormant volcano to the East; Pacific Ocean to the West. I’m basically roughin’ it.
Why does it smell like fish outside? I went out to put some deicer on some slippery areas. I opened the door and the smell as almost overpowering. It was quite strange.
Well Pan off to see this young lass in concert tonight:
Hopefully I won’t be the only skeleton in the audience…
I bet it still tastes bitter:
I guess if you have a 32 bit version of Windows installed, you can do the $40 download of 64 bit Windows 8 and have it work. To do that you need a $70 DVD version. But if I understand the directions correctly you must boot from the version of Windows you expect to upgrade. And if you wanted to install on a clean new harddrive you would first have to install your old OS on it, boot from it and have the Win8 install DVD reformat and install. Or you could forgo the upgrade disk and get the $100 system builder, which you could install directly. Wouldn’t be easier, if MS could just send you a valid upgrade key and then let you do a fresh install? I’m think they manufactured these upgrade road blocks just to get you to pony up for the more expensive versions. blah.
You know, in Canada, there is usually only a couple of months to “build up” to the election. It seems to me, the US spends four years campaigning. Honestly, I find it very tiring.
Then…its a good thing you can just ignore it?
You’ve got it spot on TEB.
… and the money that is spent by all parties involved is obscene.
One wonders if perhaps that cash couldn’t be put to better use.

Most of the time, I love my job. But then you get days like today that can be very frustrating
I too have it set to record on the DVR. Thanks for letting me know it’s release was imminent. I thought it got shit canned before it got made.
anyone going to watch the Munsters remake tonight?
No. ALTHOUGH I will admit it doesn’t look half bad. May try and catch an episode later.
I have it set to record on my DVR. Don’t know when we’ll get a chance to actually watch it.

Been listening to “Halloween Oldies.net”.
Have noticed quite a few songs about spacemen and sputnik. Seems that this was a very scary thing in the 50’s.
Thinking of the Russians and their sputnik seems a little scary to me even now.
Earlier I heard “Sputniks & Mutnicks”.
Now it’s a rock-a-billy tune called “Rocket Trip”.
I discourage anyone from signing a legal contract (ie season ticket holder) with any national sports team. ever.

On tap for today:
Homemade three-bean sweet chili (not baked but rather slow cooked)
Pineapple Pean Upside Down Butter Cake (baked)
Snickerdoodles! I finally figured out how to get iPhone’s new podcast app to automatically update the podcasts without having to sync with iTunes. Next business trip, I’ll be ready.
So much fun awaits for you, as the Podcast app downloads podcasts you’ve already listened too.
For the cake (a family favorite and I hope my new family loves it so)
1 box Butter Cake Recipe
Pineapple rings in pineapple juice
pan of your choice (13″ x9″ glass in this case)
grease pan, then add melted butter. sprinkle generously with brown sugar and then chopped pecans. set aside.
in the standup mixer, combine
Gotta mix it low ‘n slow for a minute or so. With love.
crank up the speed for a few minutes, to incorporate air.
add a few tiny pineapple tidbits and a splash of spiced rum, if desired. (I opted out this time due to Wee People partaking in gooey goodness)
take batter and pour into baking dish, atop of the caramel, nutty bottom.
Spread evenly throughout the dish.
Pop in oven.
While my cake bakes, I will clean up my kitchen mess and sneak a few pieces of leftover pineapples.
Ding! Cake is done. Slip a knife in the center and if comes out clean, then end of baking.
My knife was clean. Oven off. Cool down cake.

The height of my cooking skills:
1. Take 3 slices of bread and pop them in the toaster.
2. Open tin of beans and pour them into a heat resistant glass jug. Then put the jug in a microwave for cook at full power for 5 minutes. If feeling particularly energetic pause cooking to give the beans a good stir.
3. As the beans cook, remove bread from toaster and butter the toast.
4. Put toast on plate and pour cooked beans over them.
I’ll get my coat.
Your crap joke for the day:
A woman goes to see her GP;
“What seems to be the problem’ asked the doctor” ?
“Something is terribly wrong doctor, I keep finding post stamps from Costa Rica in my vagina”! The doctor had a look, then chuckled and said “those aren’t postal stamps my dear, they’re Banana stickers”!
The song running around my brain today is:
That does seem to be the earworm of the year. IT’s even found its way under my rock.
So, as DesPix mentioned on FB, we were pretty meh with ham-fisted (brains-fisted?) season 1 of The Walking Dead. Does anyone love this show? Is season 2 worth the effort?
I enjoy the show, but S2 is very much a slow burn, I doubt it would change your mind if you disliked s1.
It was more the faux Stephen J. Cannell drama and the I-wish-I-was-Viggo acting than the pacing. For me, at least.
To be clear — neither of us hated it. I’m just amping the snark for comedic purposes.
We dropped Walking Dead after season 2 Jack. Like you, we were pretty meh and, with so many other things to watch, it didn’t hold us enough to keep.
By season 2 I was just catching it on the web when I could. Then I gave up on it. Too much melodrama. It doesn’t have to be “all zombie attack all the time” for me but the obvious “time padding” of showing close-up reaction shots of everybody in the room was killing me. It became a soap opera.
Another crap joke to amuse the Tumbleweeds:
Bought a nice pair of tortoise shell shoes on Friday…
Only just got home!
Re: Walking Dead, the comics are much more satisfying for me than the show. I’d recommend those.
Apparently the game by TellTale is quite good too but I haven’t had a chance to check it out yet.
…and it’s good night to BST, see you in six months.
All you need is the WD comic books, as Ess has said. They actually ruined the show for me. I probably wasnt very fair to the show.

Off to do some grocery shopping this morning. Then hubby and I are going to buy some winter footwear. Is it strange that I’m a little excited by this?
Depends if it’s the shopping or the winter shoes causing the tingling.,
It’s the boots babe. Unless it’s games or electronics, I am not a fan of shopping at all.
Winter footwear is coming.
I hope everyone is ok on the West Coast.
I hope everyone is braced on the East Coast.
Hubby makes me sigh. We’ve lived in this place for 16 years and have never gotten more than a half dozen trick or treaters on any given year. We bought candy today. I only wanted to get a package of about 20 items. Hubby kept saying, “we should get some of these. We need some of these…” We ended up coming home with enough candy for a couple of hundred kids. I told hubby there is no way we’re going to give out this much candy. He just looked at me and went, “your point?”
I forgot we were actually shopping for candy for him, not for Halloween. *sigh*
On the upside, I did get some boots to keep my tootsies warm this winter
Well took the plunge and ordered Windows 8 Pro, downloading it now as I type.
You can just imagine the impending computer fuck up heading my way can’t you?
Best of luck to you, Van. Hope you made a backup first.
Nothing too important on the desktop, so this is an experiment before I risk messing with my netbook.
….and the display driver is unstable running under Windows 8..wheeeeee!
I watched Mockinbird Lane and was none too impressed. Grandpa was fantastic, Lily and Marilyn were meh, Eddie was wrong and Herman was so wrong it hurt. I called in to Slice with the full statement. Should be mildly funny (which is better that I can say for Mockingbird Lane).
It’s a big mofo:
We just tried. Kids were unimpressed, and when their friends knocked on the door, they were all too happy to bail on it. I douft if I’ll finish it on my own.
I very rarely watch network TV so I was pleased at it’s “oddness”. When held alongside “normal” TV it had a wonderful wrongness to it.
Thus ends all that I can find to say good about it.

My Boo is getting her snow tires put on today. Her life is about as exciting as mine.
Windows 8 does not like my AMD Graphics card, spent the morning trying to get things to work and only partially succeeded.
Will be sticking to Windows 7 on netbook, from what I can see of Windows 8 not too impressed…reminds me of Vista in it’s slugginess.
Yeah, I don’t plan to convert. I went from Windows XP to Windows 7 without Vista in between. I may do the same thing again.
Sort of what I decided as well. I’ll be putting Windows 7-64 bit on my XP machine soon and skip on 8. Whatever comes after 8 will most likely be a lot better.

Yup. But as I said, I’ll probably still haunt the boards regardless. You can’t get rid of me that easily 😉

Why the fuck are the Islanders moving to Brooklyn?
Maybe. Not exactly an “island” anymore tho. Maybe their new name can be the “Brooklyn Jayzees”
I forgot Brooklyn is TECHNICALLY still on an island. Just doesnt feel the same
Yet, there is no better way to piss off a person from Brooklyn than to call them a Long Islander. I know because I do it all the time. It’s fun to watch them rant and rave about it.
What happens if you call a Long Islander a Brooklyner? Insta-stab?
Dunno. Never tried it. I would have a hard time arguing it out. I keep pissing off Brooklyners because I can make the logical claim that because they live on Long Island, they are Long Islanders. Despite their best efforts to explain why I’m wrong… I’m not. Non-Brooklyn-based Long Islanders would have a much easier time because they don’t live in Brooklyn. They would run rings round me logically.
I… oh dear… my brain is leaking.

Comment catchup time.
I agree with what Bunny, Van, J.R., and Jack said at the beginning of this week’s thread. I will stick with this crowd even after 288. :happy:
Bunny, and anyone else who is used to snow: Boot-buying advice, please? So far, I just have a pair of Ugg-knockoffs, which are warm and provide traction, but aren’t waterproof. I know I also need waterproof rain boots. What are your best recommendations for boot brands?

I, too, bought a ridiculous overabundance of candy for Halloween, and most of it is candy that I personally like. I’m in a new apartment, and I have no idea how many kids will be coming. :silly:
Much as I hate the cliche of an English accented villain, Isaac in the new series of Dexter is well played.
I could fix the DVD player, or I could just sit here and watch an episode of The Mentalist.
My vacation is over in about 4 hours. We’re taking the red eye tonight; home around 11 a.m. tomorrow.
Amy, try Columbia boots, and I owe you a song, earbuddy!
Thanks, EssBee. I owe you a song, too. 🙂
