It’s the hat, isn’t it?
I keep thinking these shows are going up early because to me it feels like 7pm.
I forget that the rest of you (besides Van) are probably wearing fuzzy slippers, drinking cognac, and having a pipe by now.
What does that even mean?
Jack said, and it bears repeating if only because when I read it I pointed at the text and yelled out “Exactly!”:
Hey! Cj, I’m at work too!
I am a little confused. How can Batman (who has been dead for how many months?) just randomly show again in the Detective title with no explanation? Just… tada!
Batman was dead?
Jack, don’t forget to remind me.
My brain is mush.
I will forget and cannot say it here.
Not that it’s private.
It’s just not public.
Well I was having a bit of a liein this morning..yawn.
In regards to Tablet PCs.
Yes they have been out years, but they have been:
Like the iPod, Apple has made the tablet PC cool and desirable.
Bless the Onion.
+did for MP3 players
Yeah, Batman has been dead for a while now. I think Gaiman’s Batman retrospective is up for a Hugo. [google google google]
I guess Batman has been dead for over a year now. Detective has continued on with Kate “Batwoman” in the lead with a backup of the Question. I’ve been enjoying Kate’s story and the art is wonderful, so I’m a bit miffed to have her disappeared and Batman returned … with no warning. Bastard should’ve stayed dead.
What do y’all think of this short story?
I’m somewhat annoyed by it, but in a very meta sense, and wondering if others felt the same.
ZP rips into Splinter Cell Convictions:
Seems like he went balls-out to be original, not sure about the prose. I suppose I should give it a focused read, as opposed to an ADD web-skim.
He certainly seems to have acquired an adoring public.
Batman dead, Batgirl out of the closet. . . Gotham has had an interesting year. Is Alfred a transvestite?
Almost goodnight, :mush:
Wow, that was a long night of work. Home and having my water and email before bed.
OK, long overdue for actual goodnight :mush:
Or good morning :mush: for Vanamonde.
:mush: is delicious when my mom makes it for me.
Goodnight :jack: and :mush:
:jack: I just realized it never occurred to me to wonder where Alfred was. Bad Scry.
No wait, I think he was with one of the three Robins. Don’t ask, I don’t know. I got confused by it all.
Talking of cool:
In April our comment # were 3,403. This was a 3% decrease over last year. We have to do better. 😉
By the by, latest episode of Glee has a version of Ice Ice Baby. And it’s up on Hulu.
I like Danthol’s better.
Am I the only one who honestly could not care about the new Robin Hood movie? ‘Cuz it feels weird to not care about Robin Hood. I read it, I loved it. I should be interested. Bah.
Scry, I feel Bleh about the new Robin Hood movie too. Been there, done that.
*sigh* I wish it would stop snowing *sigh*
Because I’m avoiding my work, I’ll tell you the first third of 2010 had a 60% increase in comments over the same period in 2009.
That’s the way, ah huh, ah huh, I like it *hand rolls and body sways*
I’ll see the new Robin Hood, but not excited at all.
some morning humor
I love the comment:
it all? makes sense now….the wind is just a french retard
Good morning *yawn – stretch*
My mommy is coming to town today. She told me yesterday that we are meeting for breakfast this morning…
So I ran out and bought her a Wii – Mother’s Day and all.
I hope she likes it.
I think I might make some teddy bears today. It seems like a sewing day.
There’s a new Robin Hood movie?
I had no idea.
As if any Sheriff of Nottingham could ever be worth watching after Alan Rickman’s swooooooony rendition.
Dayammmm he’s sexy!
Currently Drinking: Blackberry Smoothie
Currently Doing: The Spreadsheet Shuffle
:ftb: Damn you! Whats wrong with what I’m currently drinking and doing?!?
We recently saw Sense and Sensibility, Cj (yeah I know, we’re a little behind in some of our movies, so what?). Alan Rickman was very soon worthy.
Seems to have been taken down, NS.
Off to Atlanta today. Another chess weekend.
From Fortune: iPad cannibalizing netbook sales
It’s too early to tell after about a month of sales, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the trend continues. There are good reasons why M$ canceled Courier and HP is retooling Slate. We won’t see a good iPad competitor for at least 6-9 months.
CP: Your Hands Together — The New Pornographers
Someone almost got into trouble because I couldn’t find my teddy bear pattern. Lucky for them I was able to improvise.
Lo Pan: You’ll be pleased by the Rotten Tomato score for Iron Man 2
Now that the reviews are filtering in, the score is much better: 70%.
CP: Right Here, Right Now — Fatboy Slim
I think that even the positive Iron Man2 reviews have been discouraging.
Rhett: Atlanta – wow! Good luck to your young Kasparov.
Let’s try it again. Machette
Jack: True, but most of them have said that it isn’t as good as the first. The first movie was excellent. It would have been very difficult to make a better movie, so I’m not all that surprised the sequel falls a bit short of the mark. I’m going to try and see it this weekend, so I’ll let you know what I think soon. 🙂
I was somewhat disappointed with the first Iron Man, mostly because I had insane expectations after The Dark Knight, so I am starting to think that my really low expectations will mean that I actually enjoy Iron Man 2 more than most.
That would be nice.
Then again. It is Iron Man. One of the most “I-don’t-care” characters in the Marvel roster. I’d rather watch a movie staring Vision. Or the Punisher. Oh wait, no, nevermind that last one. =D
Compare and contrast: ditto and NS vs. Iron Man.
missed some of it because of bad weather
reaper, it’s about time.
NS: I was never an Iron Man fan myself. I think if you go back and watch the first movie now, you’ll find that you will enjoy it a lot more. Then again, I could be wrong. Or not. 😉
The first Iron Man movie was well-acted with some good action scenes and a pretty by-the-numbers finale. I might take the kids this weekend, if it’s kid-appropriate – – otherwise, I’ll wait for DVD.
reaper, that was a hell of a Lost episode.
ditto, your friends 😉 seem to have gotten signed to Interscope: http://pitchfork.com/news/38715-die-antwoord-sign-to-interscope/
WOAH! Wait, Batgirl is a lesbian? WTF? How did I miss THAT? I’ll be in my bunk . . .
re:lost I missed about 20 minutes of it due to weather people breaking in that is quite a bit when you have a 43 minute epp.
EssBee, it is about time. i have been itching to see it
Jack, what I saw so far it is a kick ass epp.
so far 12 minutes in and i think I got about 1/2 of what i missed
reap – go watch it on abc.com so you don’t miss anything!
I’m really into Flash Forward, and am sure it’s gonna get canceled. I forgive the writers for making the lesbian bad after the last episode. She’s so bad she’s good?
EssBee, I like hulu’s interface better because it loads faster.
I like Flash Forward also and I agree it will probably get canceled I think V might also. I really hope both don’t go.
I like V too, mostly because Elizabeth Mitchell is on it. I could live with it going, though.
I’ve always watched Lost at abc.go.com.
I imagine if Google Wave didn’t suck, we’d have had a lively conversation following this week’s episode.
Jack what would be awesome would be the ability to have a watch along in wave but that is a pipe dream
Why the google wave hate, Jack?
reaper, I was thinking that we should work out some kind of virtual watching party at least for the finale. Lo Pan and I could do so live, maybe?
I now have a teddy bear head!
bwaa ha ha ha ha!
Now to work on the rest of the body.
Jack: With friends like that who needs enemas?
CP: Do The Bearcat — David Wilcox
My Google Wave experience was always frustrating, EssBee. The lag time for every action – including typing – was just unbearable.
I know what you mean – I think the longer the wave gets, the worse THAT gets.
CP: God is a bullet — Concrete Blonde
It’s a particularly nice spring day here in SoCal, so I’m sitting at the table on the back patio. I’ve discovered the best way to see my computer screen out here is to have the screen facing the wall of the house, and wear my sun visor to keep the glare from the white vinyl fence at the back of the yard out of my eyes. It really does work. 🙂
TEB: I need a sewing day. In the somewhat-near future, I want to make a quilt, an Easter dress, and an anime costume.
I might take the kids this weekend, if it’s kid-appropriate
:biggrin: <— my face when I read that, although I know you're even happier about it :happy:
EssBee, are you current on Flash Forward?
I suspect maybe not….
After Mel Brooks definitive expression of the Robin Hood theme, why is anyone even trying to take that on again? What could be gained?
Abby Someone. . .
I am, Ed. I see the triple-(SPOILER ALERT)agent deal. That’s what I mean – I take back what I said about the writers a few weeks ago. Liking Janice.
How about some Mel Brooks and DC comics mashups?
Batman: Dead and Loving It
Green Arrow: Men In Tights
The Joker: High Anxiety
Jonah Hex: Blazing Saddles
Spaceballs 2: Green Lantern vs. Dark Helmet
The Lex Producers (now on Broadway!)
Deadpan, apply directly to forehead….
Gonna contribute a bit to the silence, logging on sparingly, if at all.
Let’s hit Bunny’s comment goals!
Be good. Deadpan is the Motherfucking Way.
A mutherfookin ninja!
Erm. What -were- Bunny’s comment goals? I missed them.
I now have a 12 pack of Black & Tan in the fridge. I feel so much better now.
I think I feel a game coming on. Probably not that exciting, but I feel like it nonetheless.

The person choosing the office tunes just negated the swooniness of the previous song.
Had to get outta bed. Lying there was not working.
We have wasps in the building at work.
Wow, may convert my old 3G if the sound issue gets fixed:
Dan Shaurette says:

Avoid orange fingers… eat your Cheeto’s with chopsticks.
Haven’t seen Lo Pan in a day or two. Hope all is well.
My daughter wants to go for breakfast today for an early Mother’s day since she’s working on the weekend.
She’s taking her car in for servicing so I’m picking her up at the shop then we’re off to Humpty’s.
However… she has no money so I’m paying for both her car repairs and breakfast.
So basically it’s, “Happy Mother’s day. Can I borrow some money? Oh by the way, you’re also paying for your own Mother’s Day breakfast. I love you.”
Bunny – Happy Mother’s Day! Get yourself something real nice, mmmkay?

CP: Jello Biafra interview with Alan Cross
M.I.A. Born Free remix
I haven’t cared much for her earlier work, but I do enjoy the new song. Sounds a lot like what the Low Fidelity All-Stars used to do.
That was a brutal video.
The remix is a little more light-hearted, BTW.
< Drive By >
Sorry I haven’t been around. Have had no time.
And Wednesday, the wife appears to have gotten food poisoning.
She’s OK, just wiped…after 6 hours of throwing up
I’ll be back later.

ditto, I am a big M.I.A. fan. Agree that the video is brutal. Also, love Jello.

Lejon: WordPress uses a proportional font which makes ASCII art impossible. I’m not sure which elements are allowed in a comment, otherwise I’d suggest placing the whole thing in a code element.
EssBee: To be fair, I haven’t heard enough of M.I.A’s work to really know if I like her earlier stuff. I’ve only heard a few songs.
Mrs. Lejon – Ouch.
EssBee: Jello is a hoot. Have you listened to the Guantanamo School of Medicine?
| | | |
| / | /
Nope, the code element doesn’t seem to work.
lol: “I can only assume it is now my duty to research and study metallic covered boobs. I love my job.”
did know they did this to start with:
I was afraid of that. I’ve become jaded. Nothing about the video was more interesting than the moment I realized they were rounding up [spoilers]. Does anyone have a mind tonic?
CP: Wire and Wood — Glamour Puss
ditto, I haven’t. I just have an older one “I Blow Minds for a Living” and lots of Dead Kennedys stuff.
I wonder if blockquote would do it
I wish they had more cool stuff like this when I was a kid:
EssBee: Around New Years, it was free over on Amazon’s site. It’s still pretty cheap, plus there are two free songs.
reaper: I don’t know. 🙁
I might need to get this for my wife:
Cool, I’ll check that out. There is nothing better than a ranting old punk.
Pretty good. Puts me in mind of a rough, incomplete, young Within Temptation… though that would be unfortunate from a naming aspect.
16 6 6 6 like the Pentagon….
Daughter’s car is going to cost me about $1.500. I thought mother’s day was all about spending money on me, not any one else.
ouch bunny very ouch

As noted on my FB profile, I’m bailing on that pile of dung. I’m actually going to try this when their service is back up:
C: starving. Waiting for Chinese food.
My hubby is currently eating chocolate mints and sighing in contentment.
Thanks Cj! :biggrin:
Bored. Bachelor night.
Still watching V. Tory (?) from BSG is on this show – don’t know the actor’s name. She’s gone all anorexic, hasn’t she?!
Just came back from the latest Kanan Road concert at the It’s a Grind coffee house at the extreme northern tip of the city of Murrieta. It’s a particularly nice venue: spacious, has a big outdoor patio (they set up out there – good choice), and the entrance faces east, so the setting sun doesn’t glare through any of the windows. We’ll be back.
While I was there, I started doing some writing for Season 2 of “The Questors from Effpiem.” It was very fun. :happy:
Dan and I are currently watching Cool as Ice
I can’t believe we watched the whole thing.
I think I need an Alka Seltzer… on ice.
Morning Pan, off tosee Four Lions at the flicks today, I’ll doubt you see that pic on general release across the pond, as it’s a comedy about muslim terrorists.
We watched Witless Protection last night.
We were at least a half hour in before I decided the girl was actually a girl and not a dude in drag. And that was probably the best part of the movie. (It just meandered too much for me.)
Off to do the Mom’s day thing with my grandmother. For mother’s day I’m giving her a teddy bear (what did you think I made it for?) and some chocolate then I’m taking her for lunch.
I’m the good grandchild.
Game was snowed out last night, so we get the night game of a doubleheader tonight.
< Drive By >
So, it turns out that what the wife had was not food poisoning.
We came to that conclusion after I went through an identical bout of vomiting.

Ah the fun. fun of a hung parliament, waiting to see of lib dems will jump into bed with evil incarnate that is the Tory party.

Hot Tub Time Machine = Super Fun Didn’t Have to Think about Anything Movie!
I hate it when I hear this really fucking awesome song so I go and get the bands last album and the whole thing just totally sucks. I mean obviously that is the 1 thing music execs get right- they pick the best singles to put out there but shit… sometimes its the ONLY good thing the band has. It just makes me feel cheated.
but then you hear a band like Sleigh Bells and it makes everything alright in the world
guess I should stop listening to music and try that whole “sleep” thing
nighty night pan
Since we had Mother’s Day a while back across the pond, how did they get so out of sync?
You don’t answer that, but you would get extra brownie points..
At least in America, I heard a story a few days ago that the woman who pushed for Mother’s Day in America later pushed to have it removed because the greeting card and flower folks had taken it over.
In any case, Happy Mother’s Day to all the Deadpan Moms.
Word to you Mothers!
Hope you have a great day. 🙂
For the first time in 65 years..
Van – from the wikipedia
The UK and Ireland celebrate Mother’s Day on Mothering Sunday, a mediaval holiday, which falls on the 4th Sunday of Lent. It had fallen out of favor until US service men in WWII help revitalize it with their new Mother’s Day holiday.
The US holiday is on the second Sunday of May and is primarily the result of a one woman crusade. After it became a commercial success, she railed against her own holiday.
Of course, this is my summation of a wikipedia article, so it may be that the mice ate too much of the moon cheese and just made Mum’s day different for shits and giggles.
I feel like I should play catch-up somewhat.
Lejon, I hope you and your beautiful wife are feeling much better immediately!
Jack, I hope you are having an amazingly awesome weekend with your kids!
Bunny, I will happily send you anything you ask for if it’s within my means!
Van, I don’t think I ever thanked you for the WoW iPad link. Thank you.
Happy Mother’s Day to you mommies out there.
Working on Mother’s Day stinks. Boo hoo. I’d rather be home with my babies!
It’s going to be a long night.
Anyone around here?
Is a very very very long night…
There’s no calls in the queue…
But that didn’t fit the song.
Our house is a very, very fine house
With two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy
‘Cause of you
Sunday nights (aka Monday) are the worst. Blarglefark.
Hi Cj. I just listened to the Walking Eye podcast with hosts CJ and Dan. I kept getting VERY confused when I looked at the screen on my player.
There’s only one Dan and Cj.
But, ok if they go by CJ and Dan.. that’s like completely different.
IM IN CjZ HEAD MEKKING HER TAWK LIKE LOLCATZ
Is it Dan and Cj? I mentally promote you to head billing.
heh heh – you said “head billing”
“That’s what SHE said.”
OH HAI! IM IN YOUR HEAD DOING YOUR BILLZ
I can go home now?
Anyone who wants in my head to do billing is grand by me. 😉
Grand Head Billing
Where you headed?
I’m heading for billing.
What’s the tune you are humming?
Was I humming?
<— I may require sleep.
Maybe some time at the black hole of the internet will help:
I just finished my second Mt Dew of the night. I’m ahead of schedule.
^Good suggestion, NS.
It was a good Mother’s Day around here. My present was that I washed two of our cars and took out the trash. My mom was very appreciative. :happy:
Jack: I just sent you a bunch of Deadpan content. Please let me know if it doesn’t get through.
Good night, Pan.
btw, the “good suggestion” was referring to the idea of going to TVTropes to stay awake. 🙂
Okay, really going now.
OK so the TV Tropes thingie..
I go there and immediate click on .. hmmm commercials.. then Meet the Meat..
Only *I* would wind up here first..
I’m not going anywhere.
:jack: said he’d sneak on this weekend to post.
I’m hoping that he was having WAY too good of a time for that to happen.
Zombies Zombies Zombies Zombies
Meet the Meat – That picture is something.
Back. The weekend was indeed great – – the part with the little ones, at least. The part where I traveled back/forth to/from New Mexico sucked – – but all of the time together was just beyond wonderful.
I will get caught up. :mush:
I think I drank that second Dew too fast. My hands are quivering.
Woo for :jack:
If I haven’t said it enough …
Your kids are so blessed to have you back in their lives! You are way to awesome to go through live without.
I’m eating a leftover waffle with bacon.
Midnight snackage FTW!
So, I was flipping through OXM Magazine and I see this ad that looks pretty much like this: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51VBRy6r9%2BL._SS400_.jpg
And I’m like.. Well, shit. Now I gotta see the movie.
Nobody told me that my most favoritest band was the star!
Chocolate.. and Red Vines!!!
Oh, wait. OXM is not OSM. My bad.
Glad to hear the time with the younglings went well, Jack.
Alright, thanks to an less than stellar end to the week, I got stuck in meetings and my podcast listening time was cut into. Don’tcha hate that?
So, I didn’t even get to enjoy my Pan fix until walking around the neighborhood last night.
Ok, I’m going a long way for this one…
I had to smile at myself when PG mentioned the Storycasting site. In part due to Deadpan’s recent experience with this cultural phenomenon, and in part because I was wearing my Storycasting convention T-shirt while I was out walking.
Loving you was like loving the dead.
Was like fucking the dead….
It is a Monday.
Black black black black
Sly B and I just hit 11. Years, that is.
Way to go up to 11!
Excellent – Congrats EssBee and Sly B!
Thank you, boys. I’m pretty lucky.
Congrats EssBee & Sly B!
I need a weekend to recover from my weekend.
Eh? Three alternate endings to LOST?
That’s more than a little pretentious.
Sounds pretentious, ditto, but I’m not reading anything about LOST until it’s over!
Methinks thats a bunk story, ditto. At least i hope it is. Maybe itll be DVD fodder
Lo Pan: I hope so too. I plan to eventually catch up once the show is over. I’ve still been following what has happened based on postings. Based on what I know, I can see why they might do alternate endings, but I really hope they don’t.
Plus, I wouldn’t put it past the producers to be feeding more misinformation to the web. They have a history of that.
And how about that spectacular collapse of Detroit?
Its delicious, ditto. Tho I have a hard time rooting for the Sharks. Still…it IS the Wings. Fuck that team.
I know its sad but I just want Lost over. For many reasons. Not that Im not loving it but its time to find out how it ends. Boom chonka chonka
I’m ready for LOST to end also. I’m excited to know what the hell is going on, but glad that it’s coming to a close. It’s been really fun.
I’m mixed on lost ending. I really want to know what is going on so I know it has to end. but on the bright side when lost ends I plan to get the whole thing on blu-ray and I can actually with my family.
My relatively local hockey team is playing there leagues cup.
I hate not being able to go.
Well visited Portsmouth today and saw HMS Victory in all it’s glory and due to the low ceilings in old warships, banged my head several times much to my nephews amusement.
Nice there is a lot of good news all round.
I went looking for trouble…. and boy, I found her.
All hail Lord Nelson!
That was the Warrior though.
“We’re gonna need a bigger boat”…. cept they didnt… cause that ship is FUCKING HUGE
The Warrior.. shooting down the walls of heartache. Bang bang.
I hate scaring Van away.
Great picture, Van!
love the 80’s
Yay for getting that, reaps!
*slow squelchy guitar solo*
I would like my brain back to focus fully on the truly important things in life, rather than legal chess matches vs. the forces of chaos. Thank you.
Sacre blue! Yes, I said eleven!
Jack…me too also on the legal chess match thing.
EssBee – You rang?
(re: black black black black)
Damn forces of chaos.
Its all cause I wanna go out cause its rainin and blowin but I cant go out cause my roots are showin.
NS: please hold
Lo, this should cheer you up. Or, make you cry.

I hate Kate
Frank Frazetta’s dead.
It was his fate
Well, DP, I’m off to get drilled. Wait . . . I mean I have a cavity. Wait . . .
Take 2: I’m going to the dentist.
Who all is going to LepreCon this upcoming weekend?
EssBee, I hope the dental drilling goes better than it’s been in the Gulf.
*black blood of the earth shot*
No con for me this weekend. I have a company picnic.
To which I say WOOT!
I do believe I’m going to a sleepover this weekend too… Girlie night out with movies and munchies… superfun.
I need to put on some “leave the house” type clothes now and go buy my mother-in-law a new sewing machine.
Woo Hoo Sharks!!! Gooo Montreal!!
I call Sharks V. Canadiens (if that is a possible matchup) and it ends in a tie and icecream for everybody, and no singing for Jeremy.
That means youll have to sing twice.

Me’Shell makes my secret wife list.
Just got back from Atlanta. Levi won 4 of 7 games and against these kids I think that isn’t to bad. I’m a no-go for LepreCon, but plan on going to Phoenix Comic Con at the end of the month. I’d be curious if any locals are doing that? I’m hoping to do the Rock Band thing with Wesley Crusher.
Interest read on the NYPD tapes:
Crazy traditional Mexican song w/ someone we all know in drag make by Sly B this weekend:
Ah, ok. There are a couple of cool top secret events and surprises scheduled for LepreCon this weekend. I’ll try to see that they get recorded in some way.
Congrats to Levi on the 4 for 7 chess victories!
BTW: I hope Lejon and wife are starting to feel better.
In drag that Yoda doll you have dressed. I’ll have to watch the video at home later.
Watch the video later at home I will.
I seem to have cleared the room….. This is an amazing story:
EssBee – At least the muzak is good in here.
Page two of the NYPD tapes story includes this line
Who doesn’t love Ke$ha?
The letters in ehr name can also be rearranged to read “$hake”.
Coincidence? I think not.
Heard that story on the latest Geologic podcast, heartwarming is not a good enough word..
Morning Pan, heading home today, could be a rocky trip home today travel disruptions ahoy.
What a day. A Tuesday, at that. Oh well.
Almost time to go home.
Good, I was done with that Monday, anyway.
*opens trashcan drops in Monday*
Bet this wasn’t made on a Monday.
Re: Lost watch along.
I am in the central time zone I’ll start watching it at about 6 AZ time I think. and Sundays I can’t tivo anything because it is full. 🙁
Course I could always fill up the wave with spoilers! MMMWAH AHAHAHAH…
Morning, DP. It was hard to wake up today. Grr.
YES YES YES! AMEN!
That’s awesome, reaper. There is a special place in hell for that guy.
My daily morning online rounds have fallen into a predictable pattern:
Is tha Amy going after morning Cheese???
I’ll get Van’s coat.
Heheh… actually, mostly what I do on Facebook is play a game (PackRat) whose icon is a wedge of cheese… 🙂
Dear Mr. Jack Mangan,
This is the door man to the ravenous fan base that has been listening to a story called 16 Pieces at a Time. Many are wondering – When (not if) there is ever going to be a sequel. Poor Jonas really needs his comeuppance.
When can we be expecting this to be completed. Its been 5 years…
Your adoring Fans

Going to be a rough week.
I am noticing that… as well.
Once again reaper’s links are both winners. People should just never let that guy into the lane.
Thank you, man. I’d never intended a sequel to that story, but if there is demand and a workable idea, I can certainly find the next chapter in Jonas’s story. Real life needs to give me a break. Ironically, I’m currently engaged in a real life strategic battle that’s eating away at the core of my being. . . .

Jack: Let me know when RL gives you a break to talk The Wall for Wall-a-palooza
On a side note, I rewatched Brazil. I forgot how accurate that movie still is. 🙂
Brazil is pure truth – – would make an excellent Palooza film. If only it wasn’t so tedious to sit through.
JR, I’ve rewatched the Wall film, I’m ready whenever. (and no one should feel excluded from a Wallapalooza).
Yes, the forces of chaos are hard at work this week.
Joe vs the Volcano could work for a palooza as well 🙂
And yes, Brazil is brilliant, but quite slow at some points that require a lot of thought.
And RE: late merger…. One that I hate is the early merger. The stop traffic to merge with 1000 feet of on-ramp left.
That is one where you want to go to the front, then zipper in. Less traffic. You are now causing 1000ft of needless backup.
I will let people merge in front of me as long a it is pretty clear that they have been trying to get over since the merge was announced and have slowed up to near the speed of my lane. I don’t stop though … I just slow up until there is a car length or so of space in front of me and let them slide in.
when we reach that point where it is OBVIOUS that the lane is merging and everyone else has gotten over and you can clearly SEE that the lane ends 1/2 mile ahead … I have been know to move over and straddle the center line in so that the “zippers” can go no farther without having to drive around me on the shoulder.
(I guess this makes me the bad man.)
Once when I did this I saw at least two Tractor Trailer riggs pull over and do the same thing behind me. Ha. Power to the people.
I haz returned…
You should consider the Gastrointeritis diet. I lost 10 lbs in 4 days.
You SHOULD consider it, then reject it for the pile of suck that it is.
Wife and I are feeling much better… Thanks for the well-wishes.
[sarcasm] It should depend on the obvious sticker value of your car. If you’re driving a rusted ’84 Oldsmobile, then you should be legally obligated to let the shiny new BMW cut in front of you. [/sarcasm]
I’m considering whether or not a classic 1940’s Mercedes-Benz has more right to cut in front of that new BMW.
I’m a sucker for the classic to win myself…
Oooh, that turn in picture pretty much captures a large chunk of my commute home each day.
And, while the pricks who cut in line like that piss me off, I think the enablers who leave too large a gap that makes it possible frost me even more.
I seem to often get stuck behind the guy whose personal mission is to let as many people in front of him before we reach the exit as possible. These are the days I wished I drove a rusted out 82 pickup.
Clairification point re: merging at end of merge point…
I’m talking in traffic, bumper to bumper. The “zippers” are assholes when they rush, but when its just going with the traffic and no cutting off…I think its proper.
Jack: Perhaps someday, when enough time has passed, the real-life strategic battle can inspire that story, or some other story.
Hang in there, man. We’ve all got your back.
+1 the back-getting.
Work has been insane. I have, thus far, survived.
And the fascination with bacon continues…
I like bacon as much as the next guy – but I just don’t get our generation’s bacon obsession.
Thank you guys for the back-getting. I sure hope you’re right, Amy. I’d love to be free to focus on creative things again.
Jack: You’re welcome! 🙂
opening seen = Dude holy shit!!
This is one the of episodes we have all been waiting for.
reaper, zip it!
At this rate, we’re going to have to auction Jack’s Back off to the highest bidder 🙂
Yeah. Totally don’t get the bacon thing. Just not a big bacon fan here.
Bacon is ok..
It’s not Red Vines though..
Rejoice!! You are all saved from my singing yet again!!

I finished Spherical Tomi yesterday.
I think I was cliffhangered to death.
Nomad, that may have to be the front cover blurb, if I ever release another edition of Spherical Tomi.
Thanks much for reading (or listening)!
My back thanks everyone again. And I promise, it isn’t hairy.
I think I would Snoopy Dance if that happened. But I’m silly that way.
Nomad speaks truth to Mangan!
Good skill to you, Nomad Scry.
Snow + massive allergy attack = argh.
EssBee – Wanna trade? I have tornadoes and hail.
Gay rights in video games, a timeline:
Damn shame for those of us with hairy backs.
NS, Jack: LOL!!! Yeah, I remember getting slammed with that, too. My own cliffhanger moment at the end of Questors season 1 pales in comparison. 🙂
My hubby has a hairy back, Van. It keeps me warm. :happy:
Van, I also don’t mind a hairy back.
Bunny: missed seeing you around here!
Leaving again shortly. With luck, will be in more often, will see how it goes.
Hope everything’s okay, girl. I’ve got your back too – I don’t care how hairy it is.
Might do a movie later this week.
The next one on my list is something about Nazi zombie’s at a ski lodge. That’s gotta be good for a smile or two.
Thanks EssBee. But, just so you know, MY back isn’t hairy. It’s soft, smooth, has a few moles…
I didn’t start getting hair on my back until I turned 40. Then I realized how hairy my ears had gotten. Well, that and when my wife started stroking my ears and I thought… how romantic… then she started PULLING THE HAIR ON MY EARS!!! OW!!!!
the moment was lost 🙂

So I’m thinking of writing my own novella called “Cubical Tony.” It’s about this guy named Tony and his life working in a cubical, with his bosses sucking out his life force and selling it on Ebay.
That’ll get great reviews on amazon, Rhett.
Rhettro: Don’t forget to include PC Load Letter
You put your hand upon my hip. When you dip I dip we dip…
*gun to head*
Beware of dip
The kid in the cube across from me is named Tony
Tony, Tony Bo-Bony Banana Fanna Fo-Fony Fee-Fi-Mo Mony
You dip we dip
Cubicle Tony = funny. 🙂
Spherical Rhettro: Combat Stapler
Diplodocus with diptheria?
PC Load Letter? what the fuck does that mean
reaper <—– late to the party
JR – hahah. Been there. So very not fun.
Lo Pan – What’s the fascination with Skoal today?
Ah ah ah ah. I so funny.
Put on your red shoes
and dance the blues
He shoots. He Skoals!
Everyone wins!!! And also loses
Nomad Im slacking! I havent given you your weekly dose of demoncat lately.
You know… when I signed up for this gig, this being a dad, I never realized it would include trying to restring a guitar.
I have no idea what I am doing.
But I’m pretending real good.
Professionalism is always faked.

bean dhhip = fuhhnny
I am thinking about making my own guitar strings from my cats – Do you want to use the strings that are made –
They are a bit sticky.
Heres a small one, Nomad.
at least they are building the thing as a new type of ride and not trying to build a real life one with weapons that work to cause the robots taking over the world.
CW The office: Cover-up
I’m a professional at faking. 🙂
Nomad: There are plenty of guitar stringing “how to” videos on YouTube.
One sip to wet them
One sip to wine them
One sip to cool them all
and in the darkness, brine them!
Does anyone else feel the current season of Doctor Who has been serving up extra cheese?
CP: North American Scum — LCD Soundsystem
I actually found myself giving up on who a few episodes into the David Tennant era. I actually like cheese and camp, but I started to feel like there wasn’t anything more to Who than that after a while. Sacrilage I know, but what to do.
I need nachos.
There’s an op ed in my local paper today written by Gov. Brewer. Makes me mad.
I don’t believe Jack. I need proof.
Good morning, everyone.
for the lost lovers:
Good flow chart on tattoos
Lo – Demoncat is slacking. That one almost made sense.
Rhettro – Thank you. I’ll have to find some of these videos…
Lejon – Extra cheese? Yup. But they kind of had to reset. Or fundamentally change the character of the show.
Rhettro – Who is always uneven, but there are some really neat story lines and episodes that are worth waiting for. And if you haven’t seen Blink, you need to. I think that may be the best single episode of the returned series.
I hurt. I am going to bed.
Please misbehave whilst I am gone.
Nice flow chart! I’m going tattooing after work today.
This day sucks my left one.
CP: Sometimes (Lester Piggot) — James
Major rant coming on!
I HATE MY NEW DOCTOR!!!!
I use to have one that I really liked. She was empathetic, sympathetic and would listen to you. She quit doctoring and now I have a new doctor. I HATE HIM!!!
Great flow chart. I made the decision on my tat prior to getting drunk. 🙂 three of us all tattooed each other. It was great
ly painful! A homemade tattoo gun made from a bic pen, a large (yarn?) needle, and me holding the leads on a battery of a small RC car motor (when they still took ‘D’ batteries. WOW! Painful doesn’t begin to describe it. Very glad I was drunk prior to getting it LOL
NS: Hope you’re not hurt too bad! Good night! Let the hi-jinx begin!
Now for some background:
As has been noted by EssBee I’ve been pretty quiet. Some know I’ve been visiting the doctor for the last few weeks with various symptoms which, among other things, meant I haven’t done martial arts or worked out for at least three weeks.
Went to my “new” doctor (did I mention how much I hate him?) and was put through a battery of tests. All test results pointed to problems with my kidneys. Not an unreasonable thing since when I was very little I spent months in the hospital due to my kidneys not functioning properly.
Last week he sent me for an ultrasound. Got the results today and they came back saying the one kidney was ok, they could not get a proper reading on the second one as it seems to be tilted in the body or something like that (I don’t remember the exact wording but you get the idea).
So this lovely doctor decided to focus on one of the symptoms which was a vitamin D deficiency and said because of this you have Seasonal Affective Disorder and promptly prescribed me an anti-depressant. He also told me I needed to get more exercise.
Wait a minute!!! I’m one of the most up people you’ll meet, I’m refusing to take the anti-depressant. Also, I worked out 40 minutes a day plus 90 minutes of martial arts 3 times a week (up until I got sick), how do I need more exercise? Lastly, that diagnoses only covers a couple of the symptoms, what about the rest?
As soon as I walked out of the doctors office I called my hubby at work and ranted to him. He told me it was time to find a new doctor. That is not an easy thing to do. Calgary has a seriously shortage of doctors. But I guess I have no choice
Thank you for listening to my rant. I feel better having gotten that off my chest.
TEB: You’re rant has been noted. Cataloged. Copied three times. Filed, forwarded, and buried in saltpeter.
Sorry to hear your doctor sucks. Did you explain the exercise and upbeat nature to him, or did he simply believe that he is god and didn’t hear you?
I did tell him (he did ask) but I think you’re right about the God complex. I miss my old doctor.
Have a call into a couple of new doctors that Alberta Health says are accepting new patients. Here’s hoping.
buried in saltpeter?
Sorry Bunny, Hope you feel better soon.
In other news, I just bought a four day ticket to http://www.phoenixcomicon.com/
Do you think Felicia Dey will want to date my avatar?
TEB: misquoted from the Hitchhiker to the Galaxy radio shows… something about Vogon bureaucracy…
Thank you for sharing that, Bunny. I’d agree that the anti-depressant prescription is suspicious (but what do I know?).
I do hope you feel better soon.
Rhettro: if she does, let us know
TEB: Here’s hoping for a quick and efficient search that ends well.
[beavis]saltpeter. heh heh. You said peter.[/beavis]
TEB: That sucks. Here’s hoping a heavy rock drops on him. 🙂

I know this is old, but still awesome:
Well can’t say I was that impressed with the latest Lost – all that Light in the cave crap.
I’ll get my coat.
Jack: Totally agree about the article. There’s a lot of entitlement issues going around nowadays. It’s rather frustrating.
That made more sense in my mind that it did on the screen..errr.
ZP takes a look at the rather obscure NIER:
Damn, so Jack is not our bitch? I want my money back…
Well ok, Vanamonde – I’m your bitch. Just don’t tell anyone.
(Note: all contents of this comment are satirical in nature, and intended only to be light-hearted, comedic fun).
Hope things improve for you soon TEB. I fell out with my current Doc when he overreacted to my laughing when I get nervous, thinking I was taking the piss when I was in fact ill, thankfully the local centre has other Doctors you can see.
Yeah! Suck it penguins!!
Woot! At least one Canadian team will head into the Conference finals.
TEB – Good luck with the doctor hunt. A good one is a godsend, a bad one… should be put out of their misery.

Disclaimer: The last disclaimer is the absolute truth. Beware of sharp edges.
TEB: Um… yeah. I’m not even a science person, much less a doctor, but I think it stands to reason that if you have a vitamin D deficiency, you should take Vitamin D, rather than antidepressants. And yes, we all know how upbeat you are. Get well, and here’s hoping you do find a doctor who listens better.
Wow. Long, but full and productive day here. Night, Pan.
