When you’re 164, I’ll be the one.
Try to shift it, couldn’t even lift it..
We was getting nowhere
so we had a cup of tea
Tomorrow morning you can all help me with the resume updating. Tonight – we sleep.
Oh yeah and I guess we are getting our new (to us) car tomorrow.
I have no idea how much change I can handle in one week.
At this point, I think I’ll only be getting a new car if I make it to the bonus round. Jokes aside….. Cool. Congrats 🙂
Multiple Underhand Schemes Halted
This nipple does not go to 11.
My biggest complaint with the survey was when it asks what listening to podcasts is replacing, like conversations and so on. It replaces nothing for me. If I want to conversate, I pause. Or turn it down.
I am going to arranging my nipples vertically.
How many nipples does a Wolf have, anyway?
And this… er… study of the volume and motion in 2g1c reaction videos…
I only share because I care.
I’m also full of crap.
What the hell.
What’s the matter EssBee?
I asked Bunny not to send her snowstorm here. It’s a blizzard!!
Hi Wolfie, btw. Haven’t talked to you for an age.
Well, I’ve fulfilled my hockey obligations. Aren’t I a peach?
Fingers crossed on the new job app, Cj
Cool to the car Cj
Still snowing here, EssBee
Ok, I’m done for the moment
So my new computer came with a cool headset/mic combination and stupid Audacity won’t recognize the mic. The computer settings say everything is ok and recognizes the mic, it’s just Audacity that’s being dopey.
Back to the old mic.
I didn’t know anybody still used these
I don’t blame you, Bunny. I actually am happy about the moisture. I have spinach and peas coming up.
CP: Wander Radio E51
Batman the musical?
Stop playing with your food!
That is a packed episode.
EssBee I’m angry about the snow. That just means they’ll push back the date for my yard being redone. I want it done now!!!
Angry Bunny. Eeek!
Ok that’s all the silliness I can handle today.
Bye bye, Bunny.
Kick ass dumb ass, EssBee!
I have been busy Essbee,
The big project is moving along… Looking at June release. To coincide with the 4th anniversary of Wander Radio.
Good ep, Jack. Enjoyed it.
Keep fightin’.. even if there is more roadblocks to come.
Power to the deadpan
Fun episode, Wolf. I always love the music.
Now it’s pouring.
I’m wearing my @ @ shirt.
Essbee = peach.
Thank you EssBee. I try to always run the gambit for you.
Cj is trying to hypnotize the world with her t shirt?
For me?! swoooooooooooon
finally found free time to listen!!!
This episode of the Deadpan was filmed live before a studio audience.
CJ: good luck with the car and job!
Speaking of huge projects, I think you have a bunch of files to send me, WNDR?
I gave SModcast a listen, don’t think it’s for me. I’ll give it another go. Kick in the Dice Bags seems worthy of keeping, CPing.
Watched Moon last night. That was a whole lot of awesome
JØ: SModcast is kind of hit or miss… It’s been a lot more miss since Zack and Miri Make a Porno though… Smith went full-on Wake-n-Bake after that, and it’s never been the same.
I, personally, didn’t stick with either KitDB or SMODcast past three episodes, but I won’t begrudge someone else who enjoys them.
My @-@ shirt came today. I will save it for Saturday when I can torment my Mandalorian friend.
Which is, I’ll point out, Cj’s fault. She said I had to keep the shirt instead of gifting it. [evil grin]
NS: I should probably point out that after the Zach and Miri “disappointment”, SModcast became a lot more difficult to listen to. I have completely dropped it from my subscriptions. It stopped being enjoyable… but it was always hit or miss, and usually had at least one gut-laugh for me… the laughs ultimately did not outweigh the crap, however
Lejon – The crap. You said it.
… AHHHH. I just found a booboo in my project. Dammit.
NS: kiss it, put a band-aid on it, and you’re good.
Yes Sir Mr Jack I do.
I want a pile of files from Wolf too. I only got the one. 🙁
Baid-and in place, time to re-export, re-convert, and re-upload. Instead of going to bed like a sane person. Mwuahahahahahaha.
for being a slower paced more laid back episode that sure did have a lot to it!
NS: You didn’t kiss it? It’s just going to whine at you until you do…
Mwuah mwuah mwuah. …
Lejon! It doesn’t seem to care!
CW: Happy Town E1
An interesting start for a new TV series.
CP: on hold for CCH music
Bit of food eaten.
The temptation of a nap is great, but probably not going to happen.
This is not the “actual” car we are getting, but it looks exactly like it: http://cdn.getauto.com/photos/3/159013/1c/5N1ED28Y52C504573-1c.jpg
I went to the post office too.
I listened to one Smodcast years ago (they were discussing overweight people getting unfair treatment on Disney rides). It had some laughs, but I still didn’t feel compelled to keep going.
I hate to trashtalk, but I think the brilliant, edgy Kevin Smith we all saw in the original Clerks was pretty quickly dulled by success and yes-men.
Tend to like Kevin Smith as a stand-up act rather than his movies typically. Althought Jay and Silent Bob is a good movie to watch drunk.
NS – What files are you looking for???? Huh???
the Kevin Smith video (on you tube) talking about writing a superman script was great! 🙂
JRM: is that the one from An Evening with Kevin Smith?
I recall Kevin Smith’s spat with Tim Burton over that Superman script, and also that Smith had ended the whole thing with a pretty classy public statement in praise of Burton’s films (even after Planet of the Apes).
I like Kevin Smith – – he’s a wiseass, hockey-loving Jersey guy – – he’s my people. I just wish his movies lived up to his brilliant potential.
Xerox, Jack, Xerox…
LJ: yes, yes it is. It’s quite funny 🙂
as is Catch and Release (for thsoe looking for a good chick flick that a man can sit through )
JRM: Yeah, the whole An Evening with Kevin Smith is pretty funny. Especially the “Prince World”… that tops Superman by just a hair…
OOHhhhh, so we sing the WINNERS anthem.
*slow on the uptake*
We are the Champions, after all.
Aw, who’m I kidding. I’m not participating. I’d have to look at hockey stats and stuff.
My brain still screamed for mercy:
Excellent article, Van. . . although after reading, my brain is now :mush:
So, if I keep traveling out into the universe, I will eventually end up back where I started?
I’ve driven across Texas, Ed. That’s exactly how it felt.
Well this came as a surprise:
So – saw a sneak preview of the “Babies” movie tonight. It definitely goes all out for the “awww” factor, kinda like a bunch of home movies. It’s still a pretty interesting documentary, though, about different cultures.
This made me giggle…
Then I was ashamed… mostly because I can totally relate…
Well, Jack, that’s not surprising. Texas is the center of the universe, after all.
Jack I have sent you your files – follow the link in the email.
CP: yesterday’s Democracy Now! Patti Smith
CP: yesterday’s Fresh Air – Sean Hayes
took the day off yesterday to take care of a little situation in my lawn
7ft a round oak tree and a 5 ft round stump of an oak tree.
I really hurt today.
Wow, reaper. My elbow just ached in sympathy.
EssBee, it might not have been so bad but I was running out of daylight and I only had time to cut the 40ft trunk in to 5 sections and roll them to the shed. turning a 5ft chunk of wood like that is not easy. funny thing is my had hurts the worst because I forgot to grab a hat. My head looks like a tomato.
the sun burn makes my head feel crunchy. I don’t think that is good.
Ok, I can’t help it any more I have to make the bad joke:
Did my big log scare everyone away?
I’m back and I’m healthy!
CP: this ep
Jack: totally agree with your sentiments.
Here’s hoping 2010 doesn’t suck.
My first round pick summary.
1 point for getting the winning team and 1 for getting the number of games right.
Washington vs Montreal — Washington in 5 (Montreal won in 7)
NJ vs Philadelphia — NJ in 6 (Phily won in 5)
Buffalo vs Boston — Boston in 7 (in 6)
Pittsburgh vs Ottawa — Pittsburgh in 7 (in 6)
SJ vs Colorado — SJ in 5 (in 6)
Chicago vs Nashville — Chicago in 4 (in 6)
Vancouver vs LA — Vancouver in 5 (in 6)
Phoenix vs Detroit — Phoenix in 7 (Detroit won in 7)
Total 5 points out of 16. 🙁
My 2nd round picks:
Pittsburgh vs Montreal — Pittsburgh in 6
Boston vs Philadelphia — Boston in 7
San Jose vs Detroit — San Jose in 7
Chicago vs Vancouver — Chicago in 5
Dang. And I was hoping a Canadian team stuck around.
Loved the medley at the end, Jack.
The job posting I was expecting didn’t post so I’m still waiting on that, but I did receive an email that the departmental area in which I’m interested is mutually interested in me!
The job is, of course, in the office farthest from my house, but it would be well worth the trip to get this position!
good luck Cj!
Good Luck CJ!!!
Although is it really luck…
I mean they meet you and the charming smile that you have – They don’t stand a chance.
Plus you are smart and witty.
Nope they don’t stand a chance.
Good luck, Cj!
Yes, good luck CJ!
Go get em, Cj!
A company that got a big green grant from the Obama administration moved in across the street, and Joe Biden is coming for the ribbon cutting today. Our entire block is locked down – I guess I’m in the office for the day! Secret service is everywhere.
Suck it :ftb:
Good luck Cj!
I was too busy last night to check results, so I still don’t know how any games went – and so – here are my uninfluenced 2nd round picks:
Penguins over Canadiens in 5
Boston over Philadelphia in 5
Detroit over San Jose in 7
Vancouver over Chicago in 6
I just know my picks went horribly wrong in round 1.
As is typical for me, I thought of something I wanted to comment on while listening … but by the time I got to a keyboard, whatever it was had wafted away. Bah.
slow motion makes everything better…or not.
I think my job is stuck in slow motion.
CW The office
WNDR, your job is to get hit with cupcakes?
Morning :pan: !
I feel dumber this morning…
Jack – Today is one of those days where that would be a benefit…
Lejon – Go back and listen to episode 50 intro again… You’ll feel better.
I now pledge to try and use ‘Verisimilitude’ at every oppotunity:
Finley cough up on comments and here is my 2 cents:
smodcast: hit or miss but it is an hour a week I can skip through the bad
KitDB: interesting but gets a bit deeper in gaming than i get. again only an hour a week so I will stick with it for a while.
Video Game Show: like it but I won’t bother with old shows.
I applaud your Verisimilitude, Vanamonde. Verily.
My house smells like baking oreos.
I like vermicellitude. 😛
Don’t really like vegimite.
It’s all in the vegitativetude
CP: Breaking It Up — Lykke Li
Vegemite over vermicelli?
Sounds like a case for…
MOST AWESOME THING EVER!
Heading out the door for a trip. Web access will be sporadic (or possibly nonexistent) over the weekend. Have a great weekend, Pan! 🙂
Verisimilitude: It’s what Fiction’s made of.
Vermicellitude: It’s what’s for dinner…
Vincibilitude: It’s for losers
Invincibilitude: It’s for superheroes.
Cj: Good luck!
WNDRWolf: If my job isn’t in slo-mo, it’s in reverse.
I’ll not be on ‘Pan most likely for the weekend. Finally get to spend quality time with Lady J. Also, we’re going to see “Tommy” Saturday. Not a The Who fan, but I’ll enjoy it. Hopefully.
I feel like I should be sitting on the porch, waving to everyone, saying “be careful!”
Nice v-words, Lejon……… (I’ll let that just hang there). Just no voracious violent eviscerating.
You visiting eVfn this eVening?
Amy: Enjoy Santa Barbara
Jack / Everyone: Any plans to attend Phoenix Comic Con?
Everyone: For any of yous computer artist types out there, you may want to checkout “Inkscape.” http://www.inkscape.org
It’s a nice program comparable to Coreldraw and Adobe Illustrator, except it’s less crash prone and costs nothing.
Jack, I feel so Vajazzled…figuratively speaking, of course…
Rhettro: Good on ya! I use Inkscape extensively, on both Windows and Linux.
LCMod bit of nonsence news……
For all you Hockey Fans….the Detroit Red Wings bought some of the LED lights that the company i work for made. They will be used I think on Sunday or sometime next week for player intros.
ok yeah I’m a little giddy about it.
Rhettro: I’ll be at Phx Comicon all 4 days. Hooray for real vacation approvals!
Thank you everyone for the job well-wishes!
I took this nummy Oreo cheesecake to EVFN tonight for Debbie (Spellwight)’s birthday and it was gobbled up! Apparently it was quite delicious. I love to see people enjoy my cooking! *squeee!* it makes me so happy!
Adam Roberts chokes on book 7 as he attempts to review ‘The Wheel of Time’ series:
Comicon is on.
I’m sorry I missed the cake and Debbie’s birthday at EVFN. I’d been planning on attending, but I just couldn’t manage the timing.
We did get to see The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Van, did you catch that one? It was a brilliant story. . . Excellent film, although there are a couple of disturbing moments.
I’ve drive across Texas multiple times. I stopped and had a wrench in my hand once and almost stole mile marker 666. I wish I had.
Reaper: That’s one helluva a tree!
Yeah Jack, really enjoyed ‘The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo’.
Agreed on the disturbing scenes, but liked the way she got revenge on her abuser..
I need pollyfilla to plug the holes in my memories.
*That’s only a minor subplot spoiler, btw* Yeah, I had zero pity for the guy.
JR, I believe Highway 666 is also in southern Texas. Goodnight :metal:
There used to be a US Hwy 666 up near Four Corners. I drove it once, right before it was renumbered to US 491. I’d probably have snagged a sign if I’d known it was about to change.
Anyone who has ever been a Beatles fan should check this out: http://vimeo.com/11237479
Just last night I was talking with my son about how I found the whole idea of “tribute bands” to be kind of silly (probably why I love the movie “Rock Star”). And then I stumbled on that link. I’ve watched it 5 times today and I’m stunned every time.
Kick Ass, How to Train Your Dragon, or Iron Man 2?
Ooops, Iron Man 2 not out yet – that’s just pre-sales.
Morning. Time to get things done.
Month End – Blech
Hubby shaved his head yesterday at school. Not sure I like it. Maybe it’s just because I’m not use to it.
morning pan, working 1/2 day today some stuff to make it better:
When did this happen to Christina Ricci?
your package is here:
Bunny, I shaved my head on my birthday in mid June. it looked funny for 2 -3 weeks while my tans matched up. but at that point i could spend lots of time outside to get a tan.
I have only heard one book or movie address this situation
‘Noir’ episode of Fringe – bleugh!
So Iron Man 2 tonight.
Oh and when I first shaved my head many, many moons ago, people thought it was strange, they soon got used to it.
Wow – Clip shows are difficult to put together…
Plus going through 4 years of stuff…
Why the hell can’t Wisconsin ever make the news for something not dumb:
dunking mascots excluded
Reaper – that comic is excellent!
Go and see Kick Ass Essbee.
Reaper I refer you to Strontium Dog comic strip, when Johnny Alpha was introduced in the 80’s for the first time, he takes out a baddie using a time bomb that shifts the bad guy in time and not space..with a similar effect to what is seem in that comic you linked too.
The silliness that is my hubby
Can you tell one from the other?
Bunny, we need pics.
EssBee, I’ve only seen “How to Train Your Dragon”, which exceeded all expectations.
dreadpirate, I saw an NPR article way back about the Faux Four, I think one or two of them are in Paul Schaffer’s Late Night band. That link is fantastic – I’ve always thought that Abbey Road medley is possibly the greatest thing the Beatles ever did.
Um… I have pics Jack, see the link.
Oops, posted a moment too late…. He does that look well, Bunny. And yes, the resemblance in that pose is uncanny.
A few apps have went free this weekend:
reaper, your trio of picture links are freed. All 3 are cute.
Bunny is married to Joe Satriani? Does he give a Deadpan discount?
+for guitar lessons
Well Ironman 2 is almost a classic case of the law of diminishing returns.
Not a bad movie, just not as much fun as the first one in my opinion.
Thanks, guys. We didn’t go to the movies after all. We did some yard work and ran some errands instead. Still a good day.
You could always watch Pink Floyd: The Wall
One for the knitters out there:
Fit for a horror film:
Cuz I know you all love Ke$ha so much. Whoever she is.
CW: Dr. Who
The wife and I put the kids to bed and watched “Moon” last night. I agree it best to go in with minimal knowledge. Quite the head trip and we enjoyed it.
Definitely another winning recommendation from Deadpan at the Movies.
Alright, I just went and added a book in “visual bookshelf” on Facebook. (Yes, it’s been a long time and I have several things I need to add).
What disturbs me is that, on the home page of the app, I see several updates from EssBee and Andrea, but those have not appeared in my regular Facebook feed like they used to.
I wonder if I inadvertently turned something off, or if this happends to everyone thanks to one of the latest redesigns?
That’s been happening to me too, Ed.
But I do see your latest book recommendation!
I see your status updates Ed.
Well, this will put a mark on the friendly Canadian reputation…
Thanks for the VMs, Maki!
So. . . .I went out on the bike for a little while yesterday afternoon, and it was simultaneously sweltering and chilly. I don’t even know how that’s possible.
Some of these are pretty cool
CD: Grrrrrrrr! at Father Time.
Some of those belong on Dan’s “Should I be Aroused” site.
The Scooby gang never looked so cool.
The best part of the Ninja story is the cop’s quote about the kid being crazy.
“Me being a police officer and not a clinical person, I can’t really say one way or the other, [but] one might surmise that,” he said.”
What is the group just above PacMan supposed to be? I don’t recognize anything about it.
Yeah looks like She Ra:

Rhettro: Thanks! I did enjoy my trip to Santa Barbara. I probably won’t actually buy admission to Comic-Con, but if I can make it happen, I plan to go down there sometime that weekend to meet up with Cj and J.R. Murdock. You’re welcome to join us, too. 🙂
WNDRWolf: *high five* Looking forward to hearing the clip show! 🙂
Ed: For me, my friend’s activities in 3rd-party apps on Facebook show up in the “Most Recent” feed on the homepage, not on the “Top News” feed. The two links are in the upper right corner of the center column.
One to tempt Cj and Dan:
Thank you, Amy!
That is a lot of content… I was surprised to find out.
I think I am going to have to split that up…
You’re welcome! 🙂
I’m sure you can bask in a lot of the SD Comicon experience, Amy, without actually buying a ticket.
Busy geek month here in Phoenix! We have LepreCon in 2 weeks, then our own Comicon in 4 weeks.
Yes. Specifically I was talking about Phoenix Comic Con at the end of this month. I probably won’t be able to make SD Comic Con this year. 🙁
Tommy was quite good. I am tired. That is all.
I just got the news! The Podthology anthology has been released on Amazon (featuring two of my stories):
Cool news Jack. 🙂
Awesome list of authors on that anthology.
Great news, Jack!
Which of your stories are in it, Jack? There’s no TOC provided on the amazon page.
I think this is true of most game-movie tie-ins.
Thanks, you guys.
My stories in the book are “Fractura” and “Creature of God”.
Yeah I agree with the comic. When a publisher buys the rights to a game, they usually don’t have enough budget left over for design. A few exceptions, the original Spiderman movie game was pretty cool, (with voice over from Bruce Campbell no less). The Lord of the Rings – Battle for Middle Earth games are pretty good. From what I’ve heard, you are supposed to stay as far away as possible from Iron Man, Transformers and Evil Dead games as possible. LOL
The Riddick game was pretty sweet too.
CP: Wild Hearted Son — The Cult
Conversely, the Raiders of the Lost Ark 2600 game was awesome.
Yes, I am stuck in 1982.
And E.T. ! Okay, maybe not.
This is an exciting new development, though:
CP: Til I Am Myself Again — Blue Rodeo
Beware teh homeopathy!
CP – Coverville 668 This is what it sounds like when people make requests.
Ah, but of course, Jack beat me to it. http://amzn.to/bgG8wP
That Podthology does have a lot of great authors and their stories in it. I have now ordered my copy and I may order another to give as a gift. Still pondering.
So Jack, get that pen ready, ‘cuz I’ll have another book for you to sign. 😉
Jack: Rock on! re: The book
Though I must personally disagree on the 2600 Raiders game.
Aaaand I’m ditching the SModcast.
I have other things in my brains, but I am currently listening to the suffocate.
^ +m = them
ditto: I think that’s the best link anyone has posted anywhere in quite some time.
Jack: Seems like a cool band. Kind of NIN-ish, the first clip adds a dash of Daft Punk-iness. At least that’s my take. I could be wrong. It could all be fiddles played on the peaks of Thailand. Do they have peaks?
Jack, you keep some interesting company. There’s apparently only one thing that this douche likes:
Wow, Ed. Just wow. I’m pretty sure that’s a buddy of CB#2. Joy.
Kaboom! on the 2600..and the relatively recent Thrust remake for the 2600 was rather cool.
Great news Jack.
CW: Latest Breaking Bad.
Oh and the Eric Bibb concert was awesome, happy birthday to me.
Van, your knowledge of off-mainstream folk artists puts my music geekery to shame.
This is late, but Happy Birthday, Van!!!!!
Roy is pleased with himself.
Yep. Trools. [sic]
BTW, Johnny Null – How To Destroy Angels is Trent Reznor’s new project, which would explain the nin similarity.
I feel pod-shame that I don’t recognize 6/15ths of the podthology authors.
Oddly, I interpreted the CTRL-ALT-DEL exactly the opposite of Rhettro.
Games are merely bad. Movies shit on our childhoods. I think, perhaps, because more people watch movies than play games.
I think I spent almost as much time reading 2600 as I did playing 2600. Night Driver was my game.
Ah Nomad, so you were a paddle man!
. . . Er, that could make for a really interesting misinterpretation. . .
If you remember the original GTA, then a clone of this game is free on the app store today:

I will never need to listen to pop music, not ever again… Nope
a homeopathic bomb… Let me just see if I follow the logic before I follow the link… they made a bomb by disolving explosives in water to the point where they’re chemically equivalent to water, BUT THE WATER REMEMBERS, so it’s 10 times as potent… maybe I should read the link…
Dear god… I was right…
HAPPY Birthday Van… Hope the hangover goes easy on you…
Cool looking guitar.
Jack: w00t for a new Reznor project, and w00t to me for picking a vibe out. Lady J will be so proud of me. So I’m guessing he just wanted to start anew, since people were giving him a hard time with the new direction he was taking NIN. Not the reason he gave, taking a break, and so on.
Vanamonde: A happy birthday to you!
Thank you all.
CP: Drones In The Valley — Cage The Elephant
Lejon, no it was something I listed to on Podiobooks. I might have to check that one out.
I didn’t think he was the only one but so many people ignore that problem.
CP: Wreckage — The Dollyrots
reaper: agreed. It’s not at all obvious that traveling through time necessitates moving through space… Piers Anthony’s Bearing an Hourglass is pretty detailed when it comes to the time/space travel business. Apparently Anthony did a lot of research into relativity before writing it. The science is WAY solid for a fantasy book
And fuck you.
And Happy B-day Van. I had a dram about you two nites ago. It was weird, considering I have no idea what you look like. Or why I was in Britain.
Also, Hugo Weaving = Red Skull = awesome.
Lo Pan: They do that just so they can shaft us in 3D!
CP: The Wanting Comes in Waves/Repaid — The Decemberists
Nice find, Johnny Null.
Van, I think I may have already said, “Happy Birthday”, but I may be confused – so just in case:
Dark Crystal sequel!
I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.
CP: Teen Age Riot — Sonic Youth
Clearly it’s the Skeksis backers that are pushing for 3D.
So. Good morning.
The Dark Crystal was the movie I saw on my very 1st “date”.
We were 13 years old and my mom dropped us off at Paradise Valley Mall to see the movie.
I just saw a commercial on TV and laughed and said loudly, “I love that commercial!”
There’s nobody here.
Here’s the commercial. It’s too funny not to share.
Some people can bitch about anything:
Why this is even news….
*sadly shakes head*
Did I mention that I used to work for the Skeksis?
More chards, more essence, oh boy!
Check it out. Someone else did a pretty good Duel of the Fates:
ditto: re Sandra Bullock article – YOU HAVE GOT TO BE FUCKING KIDDING ME
But.. but she got an oscar for adopting Michael Oher!
As an aside I wouldn’t be against being adopted by Sandra.
And by “adopted” you mean your penis.
I vote “Pregnancy for Celebrities”
It’s good for them. It gets them off the silver-screen and gives them what they ostensibly want: a family. And it avoids the dicey questions of interracial adoption.
I mean, if Sandra REALLY wanted to be controversial, she could date a person of color and have his kid…
BTW, I really don’t see what the big deal is, I’m just being contrary.
Drew Barrymore is so beautiful.
So let me get this “straight”
We wouldn’t mind being penised by Sandra B?
Sandra Bullock is a cute actress… but I wouldn’t have her.
Further, Cj ain’t into it.
What I am into = http://www.scottishwebcamslive.com/pictures/winona_ryder.jpg
or … http://www.blogwaw.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/03/drew_barrymore_1920x1200.jpg
Giovanni Ribisi got old and doesn’t look as good, but I’m sure I still love him.
In the mean time…
There is nothing more swoony than a man in a cow suit.
Cj, I’m with you on Drew Barrymore . Wow, I could look at her all day.
Something Sly B just said made me aggressively agree:
It’s amazing how bigots come out of the closet over some issues.
Drew Barrymore in a cow suit?
I personally would like to donate money to AZ and the businesses that call AZ home.
I do have a shameless request…
If you’ve read Spherical Tomi, then would you mind writing an honest review for the eBook? My secondary request would be that you don’t engage the trool.
Jack: What if you’ve only listened?
It would help if I posted the link:
Johnny, the podcast text is basically identical to the printed book, so if you feel comfortable that you’ve finished the book (in any format) and would like to write a review, then that would be cool.
It’s also totally cool if you don’t feel comfortable writing any reviews.
I am terribly shy.
I’ll try to get it done soon-ish.
Thanks. I’ll never bring it up here again. Instead:
Jack, on podiobooks.com?
EssBee, no, I meant for the Spherical Tomi e-book listing at Amazon.com.
ZOMG, Jack. What a prick. When my bloodpressure reaches normal limits, I’ll write a review. I dug the book. I work with a guy who has a similar writing style to good ole Roy. Total wank.
Also, catching up:
By the Time I Get to Arizona remix:
I loved the original Public Enemy version, I’ll definitely have to check out the remix.
…… And I’m outta here.
We found a house we love! Makeing an offer tonight. Waiting for the bank to approve it may take some time. But we are excited!
Yea for finding THE house and Yea for an “excited” Leather Clad Mistress !
Whoa, a LCMoD sighting!
Can Jason C be far behind?
I suspect this was no accident….
I’ve read Spherical Tomi…
Whether I can write an acceptable review is beyond me. I’m not good at reviewing things. I don’t even Yelp.
I did enjoy the book very much. I’ll find a nicer way to put that with big words and stuff.
Dan sold our beat up old red truck in less than 2 hours on Craigslist.
Broken a/c, windshield and all – and it sold for $200 over our asking price.
Cj, LCMoD: w00t for good news!
Shhhhh…. I’m lurking…
Morning Pan, off to London today, ah the ‘joys’ of being stuck in a box for 4 hours…least the scenery will be nice.
w00t for the good news all around. I hope London is good to you, Van.
I hadn’t realised there was still a market for these:
Not as good as the TI-89 it seems…
I’m still awake again.
Any news on the new job you applied for Cj?
Imagine that, I’m awake, too.
Always Wear A Kite Einstein
Well I’m on my way, Toooot! Toooot!
Have fun, Van!
Will write review for you, Jack. Ill have to read the book again, its been years. But I enjoyed it thoroughly so thatll be easy. Ol’ Roy’s review was a great piece of comedy gold tho. Amazon trolls are awesome.
So that’s why it tastes so good!
actually, I don’t like bottled watter. I’m cheap.
Jack, I’ll try and write a review later this week. People should also click on “No” for “Was this review helpful?”
Good man, ditto.
Good Pan, Lo. 🙂
Van, the job never opened up for applications as I was told it was. I’m still waiting for it to be available so I can apply for it.
I have been contacted by some other depts in the company that want me to come learn more about them so I’m ready when the opening IS there… I have a leg up on that at least.
Thank you for asking 🙂

So it appears the iPad is not a flop after all. In fact it appears quite absorbent of market share.
Oh, Rhett. . . .
[Lo Pan] dammit rhett! [/Lo Pan]
Certainly beats all of the grumpy political noise in the intertubes today. I’m not hiding from reality, just getting a little burnt out on stressful crap.

Only the techies have been decrying the iPad. While I don’t really want one at the moment, I recognize it for what it is: a commodity computer. It is a harbinger of things to come.
about 6 years ago through work I had a convertible laptop and it was heavy. that is the one and only thing I didn’t love about it. Even with XP and some tools the experience was awesome a little buggy at the time but still awesome.
interesting and on topic (of the minute)
oops forgot the link
I played with an iPad at work. I’m in a contest to win one and although I’m sure I’d enjoy it, as would the kids, I just really wasn’t that impressed… yet
I do appreciate Van’s earlier link though.
The iPad is an interesting product. My son bought an iPod Touch with his own money and he really likes it. So I can see a larger version of that doing well. Basically a large, easy to use internet device that can play “Flash” like games. I personally have a bigger need for a laptop, as my mobile needs require beefier processing. What I’d love is something simular to the iPad, with a detachable keyboard and ability to run full Windows programs. I predict that Micro$oft will have a product like that out in 5 years.
I need a word that .. that means creative… comes up with ideas.. not ingenious but to explain the way children are when they are creatively coming up with ways to climb over a fence.
Oh. never mind.. “resourceful” is the word I wanted.
I hope this is a MightyMommy article, and not a real occurrence in your own yard?
RE: iPad. Haven’t tablet PCs been out for years?
I’m probably going to buy the iPad when we finally get to see the damn thing in the UK. Just the wifi version, as I won’t be taking it outdoors (got the phone for that).
Mainly for the games, and I won’t ditch my netbook as I will need it to sync the iPad with.
Hell, I don’t even know what Yelp is. I’ll Google it later.
Yes – Mighty Mommy article.
My fences are quite tall – even for us grups.
Jack: yes, they have though that isn’t the important aspect if the iPad. It is a very mobile commodity computer. The way people interact and consume resources with an iPad is very different from traditional models, but it is the same direction that all consumer computing is moving towards. The traditional PC market will be largely dead in 5 years.

Jack: I won’t be able to get you my anthem by tonight but it will be done this weekend.
It’s all good, ditto. Tonight is looking to be an interview show anyway.
I still owe two stinking anthems too.

Holy shit! I just saw a picture of Justin Bieber. I’ll have to ask his mother if he sleeps through the night yet. It’d be rude to ask if she’s still breast-feeding.
So I accidentally clicked on his link. So the kid f’ed up. He’s what, 10? 12? Do people really expect him to be 100% all the time, and while on camera to boot? Why not just kick him in the nuts while you’re at it (or at least when they descend).
What about holding adults to such ideals? Why give others a pass?
You “accidentally” clicked the Justin Bieber link from your Favorites menu, Johnny? 😉
I wasn’t aware that he’d done something horrible.
Yeah, off the stupid Yahoo launchpad thing. Yahoo has been more wonky than ever.
Apparently, he didn’t recognize the word “German” or “Germany”. Perhaps in his defense, the interviewer was a kiwi. Kiwi, right? That’s not a slur, is it? I’m not up on my racial epithets. But really, it took me probably at least three shows until I could figure out what the hell the host of Starship Sofa was saying. I can see a thick accent throwing off a pre-teen.
Of course, the real question is why this is news. But that’s an ever-present question.
Green grass for us sheep, to keep us distracted from the wolves?
There’s a lot to be said for a single bed, in a small room with plain painted walls…gawd how I hate mirror doors on wardrobes.
Jack: I used to think that way. NFL gets a similar rap. I’ve come to the conclusion that humanity just likes something shiny and non-threatening. It’s a system looking for its lowest energy state.

Lo, I heard this in a documentary just this past weekend!
People in my office have oddly cut hairs.
CP (on my left): The Final Countdown – Europe
CP (on my right): My Humps – Black Eyed Peas (?)
Two different cubicles are having an all-out radio war.
It’s like crazy.
Yes. I am in a call center.
It’s so odd.
Odd, I’m telling you.
For a second, I thought you were describing the hairstyles on either side of you.
Jack, I need you for two things.
Gotta find the time.
I’ll forget what they are when we are both actually available though.
New episode is up.
