Sweating like a pig this morning.
Going to be a weird day and no I’m not talking about today being Friday the 13th.
How odd. I pulled up the site in IE and it tried to tell me that the post for 143 was the latest. Confused me for a minute. Thought maybe I’d been time abducted.
I walked the floor. Oddly, I was called only once. And that was for a complaint of boredom. I feel … confused.
BTW, if you don’t go back and check out the last few nipples before the new episode dropped, you will miss an old timer dropping by for a few minutes.
So, shooo, go go go.

It’s time for “FUN WITH PUNCTUATION” Theatre!
I walked the floor oddly. I was called, “Only Once” and that was for a complaint. Of boredom … I feel confused.
walking the floor odd
Called for only one complaint
bored, I feel confused
LostRalph, are you sure your in the right place 🙂
sorry, I couldn’t help it. I’m a sucker for being “that guy” if it involves a cheap laugh
I was left in place…
Oh my. It’s morning. Go figure.
Great intro, and Jack . . . Best. A.K.A.. Evar.
I have a complaint about the promo at the beginning of the episode. Near the end of it a cat meowls. I thought it was my cat so had to pause and get up to see what was wrong. It completely confused Reeny when she came when called and I didn’t really have anything for her 😉
“Oh I wish I were back in old Canada, a land which I never shall lampoon. How I pine for the ice covering Lake Manitoba and the beauty that is Saskatoon.”
Please tell me there’s something wrong with this remake
Just in case you missed the original
JB: Pfffttttttt 😛
Little known fact, Calgary has more golf courses per capita than any other city in Canada
Just because we all needed to know
And finally, a bit of NASA sanity for those who still believe
Well, I have a bathroom to clean, then groceries to purchase.
Bathroom is all sparkly. Now to fill my cupboards.
Things are coming along nicely for these early chapters. Of course, I don’t really need to do research of any proper sort to write about my hometown in 1990. Later chapters will take some actual foield trips to the MN Historical Society collections and things will slow down accordingly.
Friday the 13th is a great day! Silly superstitious people. Now Monday the 13th is an entirely different matter. 😉
Breaking down my Boogie, man. Building up some marshmallow Stay Puft goodness. Bricking up some casks of amontillado. I’ve lost my pendulum somewhere near the pits. I’m never seeking out a pet raven ever more. Don’t forget to pet the cat…
Ok. This is officially stupid and I’m not going to spew anymore weirdness on this perfectly normal Friday.
Good morning, Pan!
Darn it. I’m being moderated because I forgot a close-parenthesis,
Be sure to walk under ladders with an umbrella open inside today.
Live dangerously, cross a black cat’s path. How about a panther?
I’m not afraid of any Stevie Wonder songs 😉
Live dangerously: Walk up to a complete stranger and break their mirror.
Jack *woo hoo!* (and you know why)
TEB: would you be afraid of a Zombie Stevie Wonder in a dark room?
TEB: Or, perhaps more appropriate to the question, a Zombie Ray Charles?
I’m afraid of a zombie YOU in the dark Lejon 😆
OK. so I’m officially behind again… My wife’s going out of town without me… I’ve barely breached the 2000 word mark on NaNo… and my kitten has been having vomiting fits…
I’m blaming Friday the 13th… Largely because there’s no harm in doing so, and no one will complain about it… (I’m adding extra ellipses, because I like hearing Jack say that word…)
TEB: Oh, well, yah… Even I’d be afraid of me in the dark… Zombie or not…
Is Friday the 13th also unlucky for zombies?
maybe the zombies should be afraid of me…
jackmangan: well, all the movies seem to have them terminate in rather unlucky ways…
AAAAAH! ZOMBIE BUNNY!
Look at the BONES! Sharp pointy Teeth!
Everyone should be afraid of the Bunny
TEB: Oh, you weren’t saying you’d be a zombie… Maybe you could drink a zombie, and then go hunting.
AAAAAAAHHHH! BUNNY: ZOMBIE SLAYER!
I had to look it up based on Lejon’s comments
all of these look good. I’d drink a zombie any day 🙂

Mojo Nixon? He don’t work here.
Woo hoo back to Bunny 😉
Poor gf’s kitty is going into surgery today 🙁
*hugs & cuddles* for gf’s kitty.
reaper is rethinking “win” flavor…
Jack – Re: DOF clarification.
If we join a character’s team will be expected to come up with the dueling points or will we be “presenting” the dueling points?
I told my Boo I’d take her for lunch.
jJ: You will have no obligations at all if you join a character’s team.
Hope goat kitteh has a speedy recovery.
Hubby is at WordCamp so I’m home doing laundry and enjoying the quiet.
Time to change the laundry.
Gah! New version of Word Press lost all my new site settings!
It took hours to get those right…
Jack – Will it remove ALL my outstanding obligations? This could be great!
Tell me more!
Tell me more!
J0e, ditto, just watch the Duel of the Fates infomercial tonight at 2:30am!!!!!!! Adrian Zmed will yell into the camera for 30 minutes to tell you about how our patented Duel of the Fates system can
Change! Your! Life!
Lejon, you should be at WordCamp today. I should be at WordCamp today.
Bunny, of course you would scare the zombies. After all, you’re not locked in the creepy old house with the zombies, they’re locked in there with you…
Once upon a time, long ago in a land called Bozeman, I asked Martha Quinn what she thought about Mojo Nixon. She said she figures someday she should send him a big bakery basket backstage full of muffins with a card “From Martha.”
And for giggles, try “is “
^Interesting article title. I wonder if this is a new tactic by CNN to get people to check out their business news.

RE: Article title
I should be at wordcamp… but I fixed the problem… I won’t be at wordcamp… Podcamp maybe?
Behold! The power of Cheese!
You should absolutely be at Podcamp, Lejon. There will actually be WordPress instructional panels there, too.
I’m doing a preso at 11:45, then talking on-camera to Dan and Cj after lunch at about 2, while doing soundcheck to set up for my 2:30 – 3:15 concert.
Jack is going to talk to me?
…. runs off to bite my nails….
My wife is having one of those multi-level marketing parties for a friend who got suckered into it, so I’m not sure if I will have the chance to “tune in” to the stream…
I mean, I did that unshow last week and I still have little chewed-down nails…
Why would you have chewed nails, JB? It sounds like it should be fun!
ditto – haven’t you ever met Jack? He’s soooo famous and scary!
If it gets to be too much CJ, he has a data port on the back of his neck, just above the hair line. “Accidentally” spill a soda there and it will temporarily immobilize him.
What is the Podcamp equivalent of the “Smore” ?
Smore and taint should not be mixed. Sounds like a severe campfire foul…
Okay, in all acuality the nail thing is a bad habit unconnected to Mr. Mangan.
Yeah. Nail biting is terrible. I am actually very thankful that I haven’t ever partaken… hmm partook? in that habit.
wait.. can you tell me again how to immobilize Jack? 😈
Smoretaint is especially bad for those of us prefer like the marshmallow burnt.
Cj, you’re the most famous podcaster I know. I dunno why you gotta front.
All this talk about Smoretaint makes me glad I don’t like marshmallows and i’m allergic to chocolate
Hiya, DP! I got sent home from work early today because of massive snow. Now, I’m all caught up. Bring on Friday night!
Blech: Massive snow. Enjoy your Friday nights!
Excellent Cormac McCarthy interview:
Oh bugger, forgot what is actually involved with intangibles and DOF.
Oh and in the UK a black cat crossing your path is supposed to be good luck.
Cj give TEB a ring, she should be able to help on immobilizing Jack…
Just about to cross 14,000 words, but that will have to wait until I get back from dinner.
That’s a lot of crosswords!
Van – intangibles would be like … well, you verses Flash (AAA aaaaa) Gorden – in the event of a sudden downpour he would catch pneumonia where as you would have certainly remembered your coat. “Surviving a rainstorm” would go to Van.
Intangibles are the little “extra” things a character brings to the table.
There’s a magic “paralyze Jack” ring?
You used to be able to get those inside a Cracker Jack’s box.
Bunny… shall we?
Why does that remind me of the beginning of a Prince song?
It’s never fun when video cards go bad. Pulled the video card from my wife’s computer and stuck it in mine. Dragon Age now works perfectly. The Win 7 Aero interface works perfectly.
Turns out I’ve been living for almost a year with a sleeper agent video card. I apparently just hadn’t been giving it a sufficient workout before.
Feel like sleeping but want to listen to more Rush… Hrm. Choices…
The winner of that bout? Fix the media computer came out of no where with a folding chair. Knocked sleep and music out.
Modern day warrior, mean mean stride,
Today’s nulloperations, mean, mean pride.
To Whom It May Concern: This dizziness/headache/fuzzybrain thing is getting to unfunny levels. I’m gonna sleep in til normal workday time and be at Podcamp about 9:30am tomorrow.
I let myself be conned into making a friend a twitter icon based on a sketch of his. http://www.hiddennode.com/images/Kloud%20Image%20Test4.gif
I think it came out good. Being conned as much as… I wanted to do something creative without thinking about it ahead of time.
Be careful Jack. I had the dizzy/headache/fuzzybrain thing in mid-October. It decided to attack my lungs and become bronchitis. During that fight, there was tanks, tears, and bags of cough drops. Somewhere along the way I bruised a rib.
I still don’t know how it went from really bad headache to bronchitis…
Anyway, hope you feel better sooner than later.
Thanks for the cautionary advice, null. I probably needed to hear that.
Ugh. I’m leaning more and more toward a doctor visit on Monday.
Hey govt, you want to fix healthcare? Get actual doctors offices working 24/7, not just during weekdays.
Heading to podcampaz. Sleeping Jack, feel better. We’ll help wherever we can today.
Jack, do you netti pot? Might help – I dunno.
Enjoy podcampaz, y’all. Today, in snowy CO, I’ll be cleaning the house. The big clean – not just the vaccuum/dust clean.
We watched Ep. 2 of V last night and I have to say I really like it — except for Elizabeth Mitchell’s makeup.
Jack I swear, Cj and I haven’t used the ring yet so don’t blame us for your yuckiness 😉
Get better. Warm blanket, warm drink and warm hugs are what is called for, I think.
Have fun at Podcamp Jack, CJ. et. al.
Now I have a cake to make.
Just found out a friend from grade school plays bass for MC Frontalot and has a solo career
Mmm, good Won Ton…
Just an FYI – Jack is about to go live on PodcastAZ
Jack, you sound great! Love the instrumental piece.
Back from a busy day at the museum. Going to have my delayed birthday dinner now.
Missed it by “that much…”
CP: I’m not in Love – 10cc
Well I missed seeing Jack playing on the lives stream, bugger.
Just caught the end of Jack and Cj’s closing message for the day on the PodcampAZ video stream. Missed Jack’s part of the show, though, because I was away from my computer.
Sounds like it is quite the event with plenty of Mangany goodness.
Hope you crazy Arizona kids are having a good time.
Howdy all you Panties out there!
I stopped by podcampaz…I was late. I only got there as it was ending.
I worked most of the day getting a podcast edited and posted (yes, ironic, I know)
I also got lost on the way…so… I got there and was only able to play a little bit with the Microsoft Surface for about 20 minutes before I had to go feed my sister’s cats… (30 pound cat, I swear… I don’t know why I had to feed it)
I did catch up with Jack and Cj at Chino Bandido (Chinese-Mexican Takee Outee) after the event. I may make it tomorrow… seems like a bunch of good folks there.
My throat hurts.
My feet hurt.
And… I’m happy!
Jack was, as expected, amazing today. (seriously, seriously, amazing!)
Lejon, I look forward to seeing you again. *swooon* you are so cute!
Here’s a link to Jack’s performance for those who didn’t get to tune in.
It’s broken into 4 segments.
16,439 words total. 1,688 words written today, of which roughly 821 were written by typing them into my cell phone during other activities and then transcribing them onto my computer. That was fun. Hoping for much catching-up tomorrow.
Good night, mush.
Off we go again!
Wow Amy. I like my G1, but I’d hate to write a novel on it…
So back from seeing 2012. Silly fun and dare I say it much better than that pile of crap that was ID4.
But a warning for some, just ignore the mutated neutrinos bit..cough.
What can “mutated” possibly mean in this movie in order for it to apply to neutrinos?
Sounds like ignoring that part would be a good idea.
(driveby) meh (/driveby)
Finally got round to watching the Mad Men season finale.
How could they not get arrested for the pinching of all tgat stuff?
Hope you are all good.
San Francisco has been rough, but good to us. Ever since we got here life has been on total fast forward and can’t figure out how to stop it. BUT, Hugh’s treatments are going damn well. He is doing great.
Jack told me he had a show at the pod thingy there in AZ this weekend. He told me about it but I couldn’t get to listen. Did anyone by chance record it?
I will try to check back here but really I would really really appreciate it if someone could email me if they know. My gmail address is andreadmw.
Hope you are all well.
Holy comment moderation Batman!!!
Van – just guessing the following ;
To get arrested, someone would have to know they took it. Usually it is management who notices all that stuff is gone … and they were the management!
Eventually the folks back at the shop will notice stuff missing … but who are they going to tell? London? London doesn’t know what is what in the NY office.
So … for the time being at least, they can get away with it.
ahhhh.. I read back and found links from CJ to Jacks thingy
oh that SO didn’t come out right.
I want links to Jack’s thingy too
you can’t see me but I can see you!!!!
*sends HUGE hug to j0e*
Jack is so cute!!
and so confused as well it seems 🙂
I love when rockstars talk techno babble about channels and mixers and crap 😉
ok I will go watch this now and leave you in peace
I’m so glad Hugh isn’t here to see this. I can compose myself when I show him later 😉
“thats just me, I’m just blurry”
Ack! If anyone is in earshot of Jack … tell him to let loose the moderation gates!
j0e!!!! Can you hear me!!!!!!
aww. I miss you guys. I wish life wasn’t so damn complicated 🙁
but like i said things are going well here, and this is pretty damn important so that is cool. The rest of life can just wait for this to be over, right?
errr.. Jack your bass player dude is hot!
but not as hot as you of course
I think i saw your chest hair!
You know I was just telling Hugh how we were moderated and he thinks i might of put in our name wrong. Were we The Smarty Hotties® or The Smarty Hotties™ or The Smarty Hotties©????
fuck you fucktardbot!!!!!
Hugh sez: we just haven’t been on here, it forgot us
Hugh sez: Now what the hell is all this swooning going on while I wasn’t here??!??!??!??!
*shows Hugh Jack singing*
Hugh sez: Swooooon! Now i understand
I love a man who plays guitar
Hugh sez: I HAVE to take those fucking guitar lessons!
Jack sez: We’ve got like 1000 people in here”
awww.. Jack is so poular!! No wonder he is so nervous
Hugh sez: Jack this is the part you should take your shirt off and throw it into the crowd
Jack your mumbling and not talking into the microphone!
wait where are the other 3 sections…
I can’t find parts 2-3 of Jack playing
am I retarded?
Don’t answer that
when I do a search for Jack Mangan nothing comes up
No answers yet for “Broken Lyrics?”
I’ll give a hint by saying justa J0e should be able to get #2 without hardly even trying.
I think we found part 2
Hugh sez: Yes, yes we did
Hugh sez: swoooooon2
Did you just throw your guitar pick into the crowd???
Such a rockstar!
Hugh sez: Somewhere there is a female worshipping it as we watch this
Hugh sez: I loved my underoos!
I loved your underoos
Hugh sez: I wasn’t wearing underoos when I met you pervert
I would of loved em if you had though 🙂
We are going to have to finish watching these later
its been a slice
Hugh sez: even though we got moderated all to hell
I’ll get you next time fucktardbot
…especially if he eats plenty of fiber!
Okay, couldn’t help it…
The new Dr Who episode is on bittorrent:
The Waters of Mars..going to watch it now.
..and a flurry of TSH’s nipples, life is good.
The Smarty Hotties are free from murgatory! Thank you for watching and doing a little play-by-play. 🙂
And thanks everyone who watched!
Wow, recorded Jack Mangan and a visit from TSH! What better way could there be to spend a Sunday?
Very nice on both counts.
TSH said Hugh sez: Somewhere there is a female worshipping it as we watch this
That was me.
Seriously, … a performance by Jack and a play by play from TSH® …there is hope for tomorrow!
OK, … I don’t get this “skunk” thing. YES, I have had waaaay more then my share of wine but I DON’T have an order or a stripe down my back.
“Drunk as a skunk” pshaw.
What’s the dealeo with THAT?
PodCampAZ was awesome and lots of fun.
Gotta give it up to Jack who I know wasn’t feeling that great. He was a real asset to the podcast stream and did a great job providing musical talent (especially himself 🙂 *swooooon*) and helping out chatting on the stream.
Thanks, Jack! You are wonderful, amazing, brilliant, and appreciated!
Cool, a visit from TSH! Hi there! 🙂
Wow, I wrote 4,652 words today. That puts me at 21,071. Still 3,929 words behind, but much, much further along than I was at this point last year. 🙂
Glad to see that everyone enjoyed their Sunday.
Good night, Pan.
Oh and Vuze works on the Mac (intel):
If you can’t wait for the new Dr Who to appear on BBC America.
Oh judging from the end of episode clips, a character once played by Roger Delgado is coming back….
Oh and if you suspect your ISP does traffic shaping on torrents, enable transport encryption within Vuze’s settings.
Well, here we go again….
Nice Miner 2049er remake for Windows machines at:
Got hubby out the door. Now to visit with some spreadsheets and listen to the Podcamp AZ recording of Jack!
The board is hopping this morning!
So I pointed my friend Brandon toward the Deadpan, though I was unable to make it to his show.
And did Brandon like Deadpan, or did he run away screaming 😉
Yet to be seen. I’ve sent links to the main site, explaining that I’m on the comments page just about daily, then a link to the episode with “Quitting Time,” and a link to RBT Ep1 “Spoonbridge with Cherry.”
Woot! TSH sighting.
Van: encryption doesn’t necessarily prevent traffic shaping if they are watching well-known tracker addresses.
Well, it’s going to be a rough/busy week so I won’t be on much. Have fun everyone!
But the running away screaming may well be due to the events of “Quitting Time.”
Have fun storming the castle, ditto!
Oh, I doubt it will be fun. It’s work after all. 😉
Morning, Bunny and JB!
ditto, Morning! You will be missed. Hope you are feeling better!
Actually, good morning everyone. I feel great today except for the broken (ok not really broken) knee, achy feet and the fact that I’m pretty much mute. I’m not sick, I’m just in a state of PodcampAZ recovery. I don’t know how many people I talked to and/or interviewed, but my voice is shot.
It was worth it 🙂
Rest; plenty of liquids; and get hubby to pamper you.
I’m going to be here working all day so that’s rest-like.
Having coffee right now… it is my favorite liquid 🙂
Dan is still sleeping. He’s wiped from this weekend too!
Jack, when you get here… let us know how you are doing!
I’m actually off for a while. I have a number of things to do this morning.
Hubby also said he wants to catch a live hockey game during his winter break. I’m glad he told me now. The Flames are quite popular at the moment and you do have to get tickets several weeks in advance now. So I’ll be doing that when the mall opens in an hour as well.
I live. . .
I’m here to kick some ass and chew some bubble gum…
and I am all out of bubblegum..
shit wrong movie sorry
I guess Bon Jovi tickets went on sale today. The line up was fairly long and they wouldn’t sell me non-Bon Jovi tickets until everybody else was dealt with first. 🙁
Oh well, they did give me free coffee coupons for various stores at the mall.
The Flames were mostly sold out. I had to go forward to December 30th in order to get tickets. Go figure
I have gum, Wolf!
Good Morning, Pan!
(not sure why I keep greeting bread in the early hours, but it seems fitting)
had a weekend, with a smattering of PodcampAZ. Ended up with 2 tee-shirts, and some pointers on what Touching the Monolith should fix… not that we’ll change (NO, Not for an instant!). Well, except that whole voice-mail number debacle…
I’m starting to get a backlog of games. Sims World Adventures just showed up today. I haven’t finished Dragon Age, yet (heck I haven’t finished Risen for that matter). I’ll install it, but then I’ll put it aside until I’m done DA. Good for when there’s a lull between game release dates 😉
Ok, I have kitty litter to change…
A non-Bon Jovi ticket is worth the wait.
Lejon “greeting bread” hehehe
Good morning, all.
ditto: Good luck!
Cj: Feel better! When you do, I look forward to hearing all those interviews! 🙂
Off I go into the wide world of networking.
Cj: Sounds like you were pretty hardcore at UFC/Bootcamp/PodcampAZ.
JN: Everything I do, I do hardcore.
(disclaimer: the above statement is not true)
The Podcamp video had about 534K unique viewers (Thanks for fwd’ing that email, Cj).
Oooh, non-Bon-Jovi tickets. Hell, I’d pay good money just to not buy them…
I can personally attest that Cj is hardcore… I couldn’t keep up with her.
No, really… nothing about me is hard. I’m soft all over! I promise!
Cj – the Softie
That’s the camouflage…
Cj rocks. So if she’s a softie, is she Soft Rock? Lejon, did you make it to Podcamp on Sunday?
BTW, we have 5 people who’ve pledged allegiance to specific DotF3 characters – – with one more commitment pending. Are you interested in playing along? Supporters of the winning character will win crap. . . .
The deadlines for joining a team AND for 12-second intangibles (free-form reasons why you prefer one character over the other in less than 12 seconds) in the 1st battle – – Ming the Merciless vs. Flash Gordon – – are due before the editing/release of the episode, Wednesday night.
Can we sabotage other characters? 😉
I also wish to say, bragging rights ate yours if you give correct Broken Lyrics answers. I never threw down a deadline, but I may produce the next segment as early as tomorrow night…
As long as the sabotage comes in audio clips of less than 12 seconds!
No getting eaten by bragging rights.
I am completely stumped by this week’s lyrics. What is this segment called?
My lunch made my mouth hot.
Some of the comments in the chatroom about female guests at podcamp were a bit strange.
…and the guy asking whether this was the place to see a boxing match even more strange.
Okay, small hints today, bigger hints tomorrow, after that I taunt you from the answers portion of the next recording.
Release Dates/Band or Artist’s Hometown
1) 1998/Saint Paul, MN
2) 1990/Brooklyn, NY
3) 1989/Manchester, UK
There was definitely some strangeness going on. Sorry I didn’t get to visit with you more. I felt like I was constantly on my way to the next thing.
Ah, sorry I didn’t get the chat live with you, Van. Should I have gotten into a boxing match? Thanks for tuning in, brother.
Words to your motha?
Really Big Lyrics?
Er, it was “Broken Lyrics Challenge” but that is admittedly rather lame.
“Objects in rear-view mirror may be larger than my ass…”
Bacon Lettuce and Cheese Sandwich?
Must…. resist……… lowbrow…… response…..
I’m tryin, Ringo. I’m tryin real hard.
Looks like we might get some snow tonight.
There were some asshats in that chatroom, I agree. But I won a t-shirt! Jack truly sounded great, and Cj looked great!
I’m exhausted, DP. I got some rotten news at the Dr. today – nothing worth sharing details of yet, and nothing life-threatening, just rotten.
Okay – salmon night. It’s not gonna cook itself.
Hope things improve for you soon Essbee.
I too wish you well. And I wish unwellitude to the asshats.
“Objects in rear-view mirror may be larger than my hat…”
EssBee, I’m sorry to hear that there’s a bad doctor report of any kind. Hope it gets better soon.
And thanks for the compliments. It was a lot of fun!
Ditto to what Van said.
OMG – do you guys watch Curb Your Enthusiasm?! Last night’s episode was SO WRONG. Still funny. But wrong.
btw – nice job to JB for stumping the Slicers on trivia this week.
Yes, I contacted Mr. Brown personally to taunt him afterward. After all, that first clip movie was shot in…
hmm, lemme think, I know the name of the town.
on the tip of my tongue…
Oh yeah, Phoenix, AZ.
Jack: Yeah, I made it Sunday. I sat in on the Podcasting 101, I saw you step in for a bit, and step out again.
everyone get better.
JB – I don’t remember the lyric but your 2nd clue gave that group away!
Brooklyn’s very own “Ambassadors of Love” perhaps?
Now, I’m taking my all-day-long migraine and I’m going to bed.
Thanks for pointing out Vuze, it plays back what had previously seemed to be weird codecs which I hadn’t been able to find plugins for, plus transcodes to iPod-friendly video automatically!
Plus, it seems to be re-uploading back into the torrents, which my last torrent client seemed unable to do for some reason…
btw, JB – they never did say what the theme of your clips were. I’m afraid I was unable to discern the pattern myself.
You know, I suppose it was my turn eventually. I have seen no sign of the latest deadpan in my Itunes this week. Going for the manual retrieve.
free at last
migraine finally gave up on torturing me sometime after 4am.
I’m exhausted but at least pain free.
Good news, JOe!
Have a good day all y’all.
J0e, could be, could be…
Of course, I picked the wrong release date for #2
should have been 1994.
Just went back and listened to the Broken lyrics again.
I got absolutely nothing. From the clues I thought #2 was TMBG but I don’t recognize “Kill Kill Kill Kill” as anything they have ever sung.
Finally got around to checking out Vuze.
They sold me on it as being the greatest thing ever, so I tried to download … only to discover that you have to have OS 10.5 to use their latest version. There seems to be no option for downloading previous versions.
i hate them
I remember “Kill, kill, kill, kill, killin’ the poor.”
The wolf’s a chick?
Ed, Kurt said the theme was “supernatural” which was a little thin as themes go, possibly. Initially I had just the first two, and things were going in a B-Movie direction, but the third blows that as it’s definitely more a-list despite Gunn’s Troma pedigree.
I was tempted to use “Planetfall” for the third film, but I’m still working on rebuilding my cred after that one…
I too remember “Kill the poor”.
TEB – You should see my shoe collection.
Wolf, it’s gotta be bigger than mine. I’m not a normal female in that sense. I think I’ve only got a half dozen pairs of shoes and boots combined. I just don’t see the need for more than that.
2 pairs of runners – one for everyday, one for workouts
1 pair of sandals
2 pairs of good shoes – one black, one white
3 pairs of boots – 1 each of spike heels, 2″ heels, and flats
Ok, I lied. I have eight pairs of foot wear. Any more than that seems excessive 😉
Speaking of themes, the Broken Lyrics Challenge sort of had one, though I assure you these came via shuffle play.
Okay, last clues, you have until maybe 9PM CST, when I’ll be producing the next one:
The accidental theme is the process of art.
1) Filmmaking – the title is a placename
2) Music Making – The song might be about an effects pedal…
3) Music Making – It’s as close to a gimme you’ll get on this one when I say it gets scatological…
Last weeks DP still hasn’t downloaded for me in iTunes.
I’m a minimilist when it comes to shoes.
I pair of boots for bad weather.
A pair of trainers for all other times.
Oh and rare TMI moment for me…I go bare footed in the house.
Women in high heels do zilch for me..I’m weird that way.
My feet get cold so I wear socks in the house. I don’t own a pair of slippers.
I’ll be sure to wear flats around you, Van. 😉
Morning Pan, I know i have to many shoes. I realized to late that I don’t out grow my shoes any more. Also my wife doesn’t like me putting on brown shoes with black pants.
JB, Jack: I like the title “Lyrics Truck” for the new segment. 🙂
“Let him who hath understanding reckon the shoe size of the reaper”
Jack – he is a size 13…
You measured reaper’s index finger didn’t wolf?
Re: shoe size I hear the rumors are not true
Van – The tip of the middle finger to the heel of the hand. Just to clarify.
You know what they about guys with big feet………
……………….. big shoes.
Fav line from a song I heard today:
when you’re holding me, we make a pair of paranethesis
In my head I can count (which means this isn’t all of them, I’m sure I’m forgetting a few)
20 Pairs of flip flops
5 Pairs of mules
6 Pairs of Sneakers
3 Pairs of boots
8 Pairs of slippers
5 Pairs of dress shoes/pumps
1 Pair of black mary janes
…….. the list goes on, but y’all didn’t ask for the contents of my closet.
1 pair of black loafers
My Google-Fu has failed me, so I must ask a Brit…
Hey Van, have they scheduled an airdate for the video of the RSC Hamlet with Tennant and Stewart?
Objects in the rear-view mirror may be larger than my shoe…
People who hug but avoid letting their naughty bits meet?
Wow Cj, and I thought I had a lot of shoes with 10.
1 pair caucasian layabouts
I might have a slightly little small tiny addiction to shoes… shopping for shoes… buying shoes… shoes shoes shoes..
Oh glorious shoes!
Objects in the rear-view mirror may be larger than Texas, but not nearly as concerned about size.
Shoes in the rear-view mirror may be larger than sandals, but hold up better in the rain.
Holy cow it’s windy outside!!!!
Picked up Star Trek on Blu-Ray. Got the special edition pack that came with four starfleet badges. Hubby will be pleased
Uponinstalling Vuze I immediately sought balance. Waters of Mars balanced against the pilot ep of the US version of Red Dwarf.
I got a very nice pair of Ecco’s about 6 years ago and other than a black pair I don’t think I will buy work or dress shoes again. After I shine them they look like the day I bought time and I have worn them nearly everyday since I got them.
My cat won’t let me do dishes because I would be blocking her sunbeam.
Oh well, no clean dishes for me.
My hubby has half the number of shoes I do:
Two pair of runners – one for everyday, one for working out
Two pair of good “work” shoes – one brown, one black (he has to wear slacks and tie to work)
Now… Dragon Age
Cats in the rear-view may appear larger, but their mind control is all consuming in any case.
Not that I know of JB.
I fear JB, that you may have tipped the balance to the crap side by watching that US Red Dwarf pilot..
If objects appear red shifted in the rear view mirror then you are going too fast.
I have a pair of Reeboks
Three Pairs of Sketchers
Three Pairs of boots
1 pair of Phlip Phlops
1 pair of Sandals
1 pair of slippers
and a pair of goody-two Shoes for special occasions…
After that list I feel shoe poor.
Van, I read that wrong the first time and got a very disturbing image…
I think I may have to call in the contents of my . . . ahem . . . closet. I am a shoe hoarder.
I have <3ed big-shoed men in the past.
Mmm, chicken noodle soup.
Objects in shoe may be larger than they appear?
Nipples in rear-view may be larger than they appear, so for Cthulu’s sake walk around to the front!
You guys have stolen a bit of my thunder here. I have an audio bit planned for the future contemplating the shoe question.
jackmangan: Oops… sorry.
Apologies in rear-view may seem less sincere than they actually are.
Hmm, is EssBee’s comment about big-shoed men a coded message?
Cthulhu’s reign of doom and chaos in the mirror may be more inevitable than it appears.
Oh, and for those who may not have known… It’s a Woot Off
Cthulu in rear-view are larger than they appear. Remember Jurassic park? Yeah, you better run. Now.
Did anyone else watch Kid Video on Saturday mornings in the ’80s?
Objects in rear-view may be in larger Parallel Universe?
Bunny, Can you tell me if the Blu-Ray version of Star Trek has the DVD version included as well?
Lo Pan says Cthulu this…
Meteor showers: good for skygazers, bad for satellites.
Objects in mirror may be approaching at 260,000 kilometers per hour!
Objects inside TARDIS may be bigger than it appears.
Coming up for air for a moment…
“A cape is much more masculine.”
I’m going to have In and Out for dinner.
I just felt like sharing.
Considering I’ll have three grown men with me, I certainly hope not!
Eyes in rearview may be bigger than stomachs.
The good news is that, after the merger, Evil Inc. offers benefits to same-sex domestic partners of it’s employees. The bad news is that 1) I would have to pay for Sly B’s premium’s after taxes (which is a federal thing, so expected), 2) I would have to submit a written, notarized, affidavit discussing the fact that our relationship is exclusive (wtf?) and that we expect to stay together indefinitely, and 3) I would need to proffer proof of our relationship, like mortgage statements, car loans, bank statements, credit card bills (photos?).
The wonderful news is that we are very privileged folks, and Sly B has her own benefits at her own job. We’re solid on all that. Still, this is kinda sad for me.
Also, Sarah Palin needs to zip it. She is so lame.
Sarah P. “would rather write than talk”!!
Well, so I suppose they’re going to have to take benefits away from all the heterosexuals in open or polyamorous marriages, huh? Only those who are “exclusive.”
So… totally about to reformat my computer. Been busy last few days organizing what I’m saving.
Off I go.
Politicians in your rear view mirror really do have heads as large as they appear.
Have fun storm the hard drive, null.
Just went through that a few weeks ago myself to do a clean upgrade to Windows 7. Good luck.
Still, no episode 144 in my Itunes, but I was able to manually download it from this page today.
Okay, I’m heading into AudacityLand Best of luck on the next week…
Heaven forbid our Congressmen should be held to “exclusive” relationships!
If it will help Essbee, I will gladly write a note vouching for you guys! 🙂
I watched the Jack Mangan, podcamp cast today … where was the “Freebird” ?
Deadpan: This bird you cannot change.
It’s official! The Buzz Lightyear team is full. And the Rorschach team has only one vacancy remaining.
BTW J0e, I hope your headache has vacated the premises.
Getting ready to record LLAP when really, I should be sleeping.
I’m gonna be yawning throughout the episode or giggling if ScottyJ and I start doing shots as he’s suggested…
Migraines in the mirror hurt worse then they appear.
Fortunately, mine has left the building.
Scotty J in your rearview is much larger than he appears.
Goodnight, Rush (the band, not the fathead).
Road ragers appear less frightening in the rear view mirror.
Morning Pan, Fayju Ball is free for the day on the app store:
What to do when somebody wants to push you away at the same time as pulling you in.
Bugatti Veyrons will never appear in your rear view mirror.
Top Gear is education television.
Got in at 6am to begin work on my phase of an intensive project.
Unfortunately, starting involves the prior phase being started by someone else.
Bet you can’t guess the status of the previous phase…
Van – re: “What to do …”
Sounds painful jj!
Van, I believe I’ve restored balance by grabbing the entirety of the Hitchhiker’s radio series. I began by listening to the interview of Douglas Adams conducted on the 20th anniversary of its original airdate. It was very good, I enjoyed it thoroughly, and I was a bit sad, of course, especially when they were speaking of his very young daughter Polly.
A bit less predictably, I then began listening to the series and found I had the urge to weep uncontrollably. I’ve managed to control it, I believe I can put that down to having read the paperback of the first novel at age 9, and thereafter watched the television series. The main theme therefore triggered some manner of…
Or I’m just pretty tired.
Have a great one, all y’all!
Now Cthulu can devour your Christmas tree too
Question of the day:
If the world is your oyster,
and oysters are aphrodisiacs,
what does that really make the world?
I can’t recall how the radio series ended, I know there’s a whole bit with Lintillas and Allitnils and the statue of Arthur Dent rejecting a cup of tea. Shoe event horizon? Yeah something like that, no?
Interested to hear how the progression from Fit the Twelfth to Fit the Thirteenth will work, as I believe the third through fifth series were based directly on the corresponding novels…
Cj, this is what we got http://www.hmv.ca/Products/Detail/542747.aspx
It does not include the regular version of the movie, just the blu-ray and the digital copy. The badges are quite nice and are better made than I expected.
Tomorrow hubby has a later morning meeting which means I’ll get to sleep in an extra hour or two. How does this affect you? Well, it affects Jack. It just means show notes will be a little later than usual.
I’m sure nonone would begrudge your liein TEB.
Is everybody happy?
Well the salmon and brown rice wouldn’t make me happy…would make me feel like vomiting though.
Van, as for your push/pull question, as for what I would do, I would evaluate the relationship’s value. If it’s worth it, I would address the issue. If the discomfort outweighs the joy, walk away.
I’m of the belief that while relationships and people are very important and special on a whole, there are very few relationships or friendships that will come into our lives that are a so special and meaningful that they deserve to treated with unconditional love and understanding.
… that was more than you asked for.
And, Good morning, Pan!
I just had a bowl of oatmeal with cut up bananas and a side of delicious hot coffee. I’m pretty happy and so is my warmly filled tummy.
Morning hugs for Cj and Van, and anybody else out there in Deadpan Land.
can Deadpan be my aphrodisiac?
TEB, I thought we where 😉
Cj is my goddess
Vanamonde is my hugging bear
Jack is my rock star
WndrWolf is my puppy…
(now to come up with types for the rest of the peeps. hmmm…)
I definitely think Deadpan is an aphrodisiac. We’ve all wound up in our bunk in one way or another thanks to Deadpan.
It’s not just lust either… I’m in love with Deadpan.
I’m heading back to my daughter’s school now. Wednesdays are volunteer days. I love being classroom mommy!
Off I go to help teach our future overlords.
I have been following the “mammogram report” and find it disconcerting.
A panel released it’s findings that recommend women under 40 should NOT get regular mammograms. They repeatedly said that they didn’t think they could save many lives and in fact could be “harmful”.
Yet if you take the time to read through their report (which most people will NOT) you discover that they are talking about psychological harm NOT physical harm. They say that about 10% of women get a false positive and then have a great deal of stress until further tests show they are OK.
While I DO think that is a terrible thing … I think their report is a (intentionally?) misleading attempt to scare women away from the tests.
Maybe I am just a big-‘ol synic but I have to wonder if the real motivating factor is the cost benefit studies for the insurance companies. It is probably cheaper to let the 1 in 2000 women who are saved by the once a year screenings die – rather then pay for the other 1999 to have the screening.
Oh and according to ABC news, there were NO breast cancer specialist on that expert panel.
Taking CJ’s lead here …
except I have topped my oatmeal/banana with honey!
Great Googlymoogly I’ve been producing audio a bit too long…
I’m listening to something produced out of the bloody BBC Radiophonic Workshop and thinking: “I think they clipped Marvin’s line just a bit just now…”
Of course, I clipped a line of my own last night, but I’m hardly the Beeb.
Good Morning! Pan!
I just had a work related question that involved something I’m actually interested in… One in three years, that’s not bad is it?
TEB: Can I be the rubber chicken? Can I? Can I?
Thx Cj and TEB.
Oooo a rubber chicken
Yah a rubber chicken
A rubber chicken
Yah a rubber chicken
Wow, that Cthulhu ornament almost makes me want to put up an Xmas tree.
Rubber chickens in mirror may be funnier than they appear.
How welcome is your madness…
Ghost truck drivers in the mirror may be Large Marge.
Ooo, tell us the story of Large Marge!
justa J0e, when i saw this crap the first thing i thought was was government trying to take over health care looking for anyway to make studys that show the cost would be less than it is.
Mmmmm… I love honey.
Lo Pan refuses to pay 55$ for a Pixies ticket. Lo Pan enjoys milk… however to BE milked is quite another matter. Tis its own hell altogether.
Seems to me incorporeal beings don’t need their own seats, no?
JB: Since when has “needing a seat” and “needing a ticket” been the same thing?
Thou knows not the power…and evil… of Ticketmaster.
Bunny – I am not a puppy…
Excuse me while I finish my dinner of inspector…. [lip smack]
$55 for Pixies? A bottle of Paxil probably costs less.
There’s no such thing as an affordable event ticket anymore.
That cat thing is wrong. my kitty loves cupcakes and muffins
She also loves rice crispy squares. There’s no way you can tell me she doesn’t like sweets.
Ok, after that quick hop in, and taking a moment to pat the puppy ( 😆 ), I’ve got a dentist appointment. Lucky me.
Lo, Pixies tixies were $28 for the show last night in Boulder. I didn’t go, but was tempted. Come to the Rocky Mountains. You can haunt my guest room.
Van, I think what Cj said is very wise. I’ve done a lot of work toward destroying my inner doormat over the past several years, and, with the knowledge that relationships of all kinds take work on both sides, only very few friends “get a pass” when a serious trespass has occurred.
CP: shuffle of all my Pixies for the rest of the afternoon
xox you wonderful MFers.
Wait, but they played in Denver last night…no? AM I wrong? I totally walked over to the Filmore and called the box office and they said 55$. Bah! I would have gone for 28 probably. Did they play at the Boulder Theater??
PS…. I already haunt the Rocky Mountains….
Oh and now Lo Pan finds out that Puscifer is charging 48 – 64$ for a ticket to their show. Hell of the High Jacked Prices!!!!!!!!! I’ll just pay 13$ for Electric 6 or Baroness.
PS Jack… Lo Pan loves Lo Pan some Paxil.
Don’t know if I’ve mentioned, but recorded new BLC last night & it is in Jack’s hands.
Suddenly, I find myself wondering just how long Lo Pan has been haunting the Deadpan. Or Farpoint Media even…
Lo Pan knows not of what ye speaks…. Lo Pan has always been. And always will be.
Lo Pan, Rhettro and I saw Baroness open for Opeth – – Not crazy about their vocals, but I still kinda dig their approach. I also regretfully passed on overpriced Puscifer tix.
Ew JB, what did you get on my hands??
Lo Pan enjoys the dirtyclean growls of Baroness. Perhaps it translates better over vinyl/cd. They are quite the musicians tho. As is the Opeth. Lo Pan digs.
Perhaps Jack would be more keen on Torche. Lo Pan approved!!!!
I assure you it is not Burnt Lemon Custard
Conceited drummers in the rearview mirror may be Larser than they appear.
I had lunch at Hooters today.
You should all be jealous.
Fried pickles and cleavage all in one place. Who could ask for more?
They serve cleavage at Hooters now? Dang it, right after I swear off wings…
Jedi in the rear-view may appear…what was I saying?
Cj must have dined with a TruthSeeker Diva…
If you want a waffle, you may need to make it from scratch…
Just a quick hop in after the dentist and before I do dishes.
about 8:40 in. There are several of these throughout the movie but this is the first one I found on youtube. I know it’s not The Hobbit but it’s all I see now when I think Bakshi
Although both were done by Rankin/Bass 😉
What do orcs, Rerun, and Snoopy have in common? A happy dance.
Lo Pan loled at “To you, happy birthday”, Jack. You please me well.
Er… Lo Pan chose his words unfortunately.
Tonight I bed early, because tomorrow the wife goes under the knife… I wonder if I’ll sleep…
Is my boy a ladies man or what?
Oh, Lejon. I hope everything goes well. You’ll both be in my thoughts.
*hugs*. For you and your wife, Lejon
Cj, that is a cute pic.
Lejon, best wishes to you and especially to the Mrs. I hope you’ll find some time to post tomorrow that she’s resting and recouping nicely.
Good luck Mrs Lejon.
For just a second there, I thought Canada was going in a weird direction:
(Thanks for the well-wishes. I’ll post updates tomorrow around Noon my time.)
Hugs and best wishes to Mrs. Lejon. 🙂
To watch at home before I start Deadpanning. . . . : http://io9.com/5406276/tim-burton-pours-out-his-brain-at-the-moma-exhibit
And hey! Deadline to join a DotF3 team is mere hours away! Send me an email if you want to pledge allegiance to a player and win. The Buzz Lightyear team is full, but the rest still have available spots.
Lo Pan, I admit my obvious error and submit myself for punishment. The show was in Denver last night, not Boulder.
My cuz had TWENTY EIGHT dollar tickets — I was wrong about that too. She got that price because she’s been to 15 shows this calendar year (something about livenation?) or some such deal. She is young and potentially full of total crap as a young punk who has time to go to 15 concerts.
Ah, nice to be home . . .
Shooting positive shots toward Mr. and Mrs. from Chandler. I sure hope everything turns out fine.
THOUGHTS, not shots.
I quit drinking a year ago. Really, I did.
Sending happy thoughts to the LSGFC’s .
Lejon – that homework article was interesting. The parents had a valid point … of course, sticking your neck out like that … now the onus of your kid learning the material is all on you. 8(
You’d have to have a lot of confidence in your kids scholastic aptitude AND attitude.
I’d like to go on record stating that eggplant is evil.
Delicious.. *sigh* yet makes my tongue swell up to twice its normal size.
Is that length or girth ?
Size doesn’t matter anyway, J0e.
What are we talking about again?
Both. And it hurts.
Quite the stud, CJ.
Best wishes for you and your wife, Lejon.
Has Lo Pan ever serenaded Captain Jack?
Looks like I picked the wrong time to quit sniffing glue.
Eggplant in your rear view mirror….ooh, donuts.
I’m taking my swelled up tongue and going to bed. Stupid allergy.
Why do I have to have bizarre allergies. Aloe Vera and Eggplant are my enemies. How can two things that are so good be so bad for me? I’m defective!
Since I’m going to the New Moon premiere at midnight tomorrow night/Friday morning – whatever it is – I need to be rested.. so off I go.
Goodnight, rear-view mirrors.
Hmm, the riddle of the Lo Pan.
So apparently, this is what’s sweeping the web???
Mrs. from Chandler says “awww, thank you…”
Lo Pan has disdain for “sittin on the toilet”. Lo Pan curses his…er..her…er..his(?) bowels with the black blood of the earth.
Curse you Mangan. Lo Pan seriously has medamn “sittin on the toilet” running thru Lo Pan’s no-flesh yet mighty brain.
Fucksticks, Lo Pan say.
Lo Pan is off for drinks at Sputnik with Wind and Rain. Rowdy fuckers, those two.
