Come in No. 6 your time is up.
You’d think working nights I could score firsties.
So wacth this link. The show may be dead but it was so very Deadpan…
Goodnight you princes of :mush:
Just listened to this ultra-fresh, streamed on the phone. Well, the phone plugged into a boombox.
Good lord, is this thing still called a boombox? They haven’t sneakily come up with a more current term, and I’m the guy who calls the cd player a phonograph?
Hello, and welcome to “…and the rest.”
Wikipedea gives a few alternatives:
Ultraviolent Dawn is free for today on the app store:
Think Elite, but in 2D.
Did Jack diss MC Frontalot, or did he mean more hack-y ironic white rappers?
Soon the east coast and early central timezone will be here.
Might not happen tonight, but I’m thinking about phoning in or portable-recording some flash fiction for the Deadpan.
Truly my creative side says it wants to drive for a while, but my practical side just tries to get enough sleep.
So, on a serious-ish note, is there any place left for a fictional childless single Jack Mangan who lives above the bar he owns in a small town up a box canyon in some part of the Rockies?
What is a boom box?
:tongue in cheek:
If you want to listen to your 45 on one, you’ll have to tape it first.
Sadly, this is all anachronism now…
Sure there are 14 comments, but 8 are me.
But at least everybody knows your name 🙂
Well somethings are best left in the past, including dodgy tape copies..
…and if the many worlds theory is true, somewhere, somewhen there is a:
a fictional childless single Jack Mangan who lives above the bar he owns in a small town up a box canyon in some part of the Rockies?
Oh yes, you obvoiusly know I dig many worlds theory…
But yes, I would bet I’m not the only one who would like to read/hear more of your fiction JB.
YouTube has improved it’s mobile browser web access, give it a go from your phone at:
Talking of anachronisms:
JB: and we are always glad you came.
Must… control… juvenile… bodily fluid humor…
After hearing that lake name mispronounced over and over, does anyone else want to rename it Lake LadyGaGa and get it over with?
JB: Let the bodily fluid humor flow like flood out of you…
Is it getting harder… to control?
New level of dumb:
Talk about disengaging mouth from brain..
A glorious morning here in Canada Land.
Won’t have time to do show notes today. Sneaking in listening to the episode now but am working so it’s more in the background.
OMG. I just heard on the radio that the Calgary Stampede will have bacon on a stick this year. Yup, that’ll make me want to go… not.
I told hubby last night we’ll have to tell the parents of my recent health issues. I don’t think I’ll be able to handle two weeks of pretending to be my normal perky self. Blech.
Hubby just walked in as I was listening to the Lando Strikes back bit. Asked me to turn it down. I guess swearing might hurt delicate ears :cheerful:
CP: Castles and Old Kings – Johnny Dickinson
On a side note, are we going to do another group Skype recoding for the next Palooza?
Van, you’re apologizing for your musical ability? Have you heard a number of us, myself included? No apology necessary. It was great.
I say hell yeah to Skype, as long as it isn’t a lameass palooza topic…
Jack’s been up to secret stuff, according to Speaking of Beer at 11.
Okay, I’d best pass out now, Darcy needs some of the afternoon to wrap up some Stinky Cheese for final dress tonight, planning on 4 or so hours sleep.
I always hear “the tiny SHIT was tossed”. that would be salad tho.
Dude thats some old skool Mark Forman bumper right there. Thats good stuffs.
Thats 60 lines of good shit. Not tossed.
Stay on Target? I dont even know her. Er…no wait
Jack you just made 10000 fan boys heads asplode with the Star Wars TrekMash. Who says the twain should never meet?
Black you Blackhawks.
* Turns in his Geek Card*
Going to start watching Star Trek First Contact for the first time over lunch.
Didn’t realize all the movies I have missed till I got netflix.
Yeah I’ll need that right away, reaper. Its the only good TNG film, how have you not seen???
Lo Pan, I don’t get to choose the movie we watch very often and I feel bad kicking everyone out of the living room to watch a movie on the good TV/sound system.
There is no way in hell anyone would have watched Moon with me for example…
You clearly need to find some nice reaper time just for you.
I miss that bar. 🙁
Actually, one day about 10 years ago … I woke up and realized that I was NOT ONLY a fictional character but that also, I had become merely a supporting character in my own life.
Lo Pan, Normally when I get that reaper time I go to the gym or play a video game since the time is somewhat short.
Maybe I should go to the Gym over lunch than I can get a larger block of time when I get home. I’m not a big fan of splitting up watching a movie over a few days
I also don’t like watching movies over lunch because I get distracted and don’t really feel like I watched a movie or got anything from it.
CP: Star Trek First Contact
Well the first hour anyway
Anyone ever go to the ConnectiCon?
I am, once again, officially behind on my podcasts.
I blame The Babylon Podcast this time.
Oh, and Harlan Ellison ®
Steve Austin would be proud:
“I kinda want you to take this” <= My new pick-up line
Jack: Great episode!
Really good job to all, esp. the anthems!
Crazy people suck.
“I kinda want you to take this”
Fuck huffing and puffing:
Nice, big closer!
I hope I played with the levels enough so everyone got a little chance to shine. Thanks ditto, Amy and Lo Pan!
I just like the fact that I don’t sound as though I’m recording in 1894.
Thanks all. I really enjoyed all of your contributions for this episode.
Johnny Null, please give Thomas Edison my thanks for such a fine recording cylinder of your lines.
we have a winner:
and a hater:
Jack: I shall. I totally kicked Mary’s Little-Lamb-Ass!
Two nights ago, the wife and I watched an old Connections episode that explained (briefly) how Edison figured out how to record Mary’s Little-lamb-ass…
James Burke = The Man
Edison, however is a rat bastard, apparently, because his process of invention brought us to where we are today.
Not that I’m bitter.
“recording cylinder” heh
I can’t wait to listen! It wasn’t on my iTunes feed this morning so I have to wait til I get home.
hehe NSFW chart (it is safe for work):
Alien view of the solar system:
Long but worth the read:
Why never to ask favours from the designers
An example of why I love Tech support so much (when you have good users):
Someone asked me to help them with a spread sheet that wouldn’t let them change a chart. I haven’t done anything yet but it is working. She has told at least 3 people so far how good I am and how much she likes having me here. if she didn’t have kids older than me I might be worried.
Good job, reaper.
I declare 60 lines part 2 to be the feel good hit of the summer.
“So, on a serious-ish note, is there any place left for a fictional childless single Jack Mangan who lives above the bar he owns in a small town up a box canyon in some part of the Rockies?”
I can’t speak for Jack, but personally, I would absolutely LOVE more fiction set in that universe. :happy:
Also: I agree, I would love to do another group Skype recording session. The one we did for Watchmen was tons of fun.
“Speaking of Beer at 11”
Jeremy: You are most welcome! :happy:
I don’t know why I called myself the Princess of Matzoi… but I think I may run with it in the future.
So check this out…
My new job.
It rocks and I’m good at it. yay for not having to sell stuff… I really really get to help people. It’s beyond rewarding 🙂
Well done, Cj! Er…. Princess of…. Matzoi….
JohnBoze, a return of your fiction would always be welcome.
If a Skype call is needed for the next Palooza, then that’s what we should try to do.
New secret projects?
Not sure if next stuff will be Deadpan Bar, RBT, or something new…
and I’m just repeating hearsay from over at the at 11 camp re new secret projects.
Yes, there was some murmur in the background on Speaking of Evo’s Beer at 11 or something, wasn’t there?
Yeah… for the record, I was home early last night.
lando calrissian is HOT
He’s no Han Solo, but still.
my niece sez: Who’s Lando Calrissian??
I blame her parents.
It’s 10PM, too late to sit 6 kids in front of the TV for the orig trilogy non-stop???
Hugh sez: no. Make popcorn. We must learn them.
nephew sez: lando ummm.. he umm.. put Han Solo in that stuff, and umm he was frozen like this: *does bad impression of Han in carbonite*
whats wrong with kids today!!!
Cj: That is absolutely fantastic. Congratulations, friend. We should all be so lucky. :biggrin:
Yay! My itunes behaved and I have this weeks episode.
Can’t wait to listen this weekend!!
Oh no wait, I think we are forcing Star Wars upon these children all weekend 😉
simultaneous post with the ambassador!!!
I did some Lando research while putting the finishing touches on 60L2. According to IMDB, Billy Dee Williams was born in 1937. Lando is older than my Dad.
Forgot once again to go through the notebooks where the old outlines live, and where the first chunk of somerhing new is jotted down.
Freeappaday now includes an Android section:
I’m up for a skype palooza chat..timezones permitting.
Re: Depressing note – :home alone face:
[redacted nipple re: drugs, skype, fear, & progress]
Did I mention I’m looking forward to returning to have a regular sleep pattern again soon? Get to finish taking two of my three prescriptions today.
I’m also looking forward to food tasting good again. I miss that.
Getting sick is not for pussies.
My cat is sick, just paid $300 for tests.
I just found out my bank has continued to manufacture bounce fees for a second week in a row.
Guess who is getting a new bank?
It had to start somewhere:
hehe COME ON!!!!
way to much to read through but picking comments out at random is a lot of fun.
Oh go on..you know you want one:
Van, that is cool but I think I would rather have Homer Simpson or Death Vader. Maybe even Hal or Gerty…
Matzoi!?! Oh no!
NOMAD!!!!!!! demoncat just won this weeks Topless Robot contest.
Im shocked and appalled and saddened and kinda happy for the guy/girl.
[ o.0 ]
Perfect response, sir
I assume that everyone here already heard that Sandman’s Death will be visiting Action Comic?
I gotta give it to Paul Cornell. I never thought I’d put Action on my pull list.
True. But Death has always been on my “pull” list.
:shakes head bemusedly:
I -so- should have seen that one a mile away.
Snoop Dogg is in the new terrible terrible terrible Katy Perry song/video.
Oh Snoop… wutchadoindogg?
Are you a little miffed that DC’s fake GI Joe tweet was chosen over yours? And would you mind explaining yours, cuz I (non-Joe) have no idea why that should be amusing.
Or offense. Hard to tell, sometimes. =D
Visually… That is pretty eye popping. COLORS.
Just a lil ;).
Larry Hama was a famous Gi Joe comics writer. Cobra La was the worst idea in Gi Joe history (from the animated movie). Larry Hama never liked the direction the show went.
Nevermind. If you get it you get it. If you dont you dont. I dont do dick and fart jokes for the masses.
So this dick and fart walk into a bar……
Nomad… visually Katy is always leaving me popping. I just wish shed stuick to her snarky stuff and not this formulated Cali-pop. I could at least enjoy the snark of old.
For mindless pop nonsense, I’d take this over Perry… despite the less appealing visuals.
Van: Tell Karen, “Bless you!” 🙂
My knowledge of Katy extends and envelopes California Gurls and stops there.
That said, I like snark.
Lo Pan: Wait, I don’t get it. What did the dick and fart do?
Nomad – look up the Hot N Cold video by Katy. Its catchy and forgettable but its 10000% better than Caliboner Gurls.
So this dick and fart walk into a bar and sit down. Bartender says “hey we dont serve your kind here. Dick and fart say to him “thats not what your wife said”.
Nomad i cant get the YouTubes here. What is that link to?
ditto! Doggy! Crack!
Van: That is AWESOME. Personally, though, I want a GLaDOS voice pack (I know, I’m showing my lack of age… 😀 )
Oops. I laughed at that dick and fart joke.
Whoo hoo!!!! I can swing dick jokes!
Lo – Tis some singer/actress called Anahi. Pretty generic, though I like Quero.
(I was logging into Twitter and it said, “Look at the awesome people here!” And I said, who the heck is Anahi? A verified account? Huh. So I poked the internets and now I’m here spreading the disease. Err.)
I think I’d want the twin sirs for my GPS. Ian McKellen & Patrick Stewart.
Spread your disease, Nomad. I shall look her up
Gentalman GAGA has a new look:
EW EW EW EW EW EW EW damn ye reaps
I see the missy meme is gaining momentum. 🙂
Before I go watch B/Angel, here is something cute.
For realz yo.
Twilight for Guys, the amusing (but NSFW) lesbian vampire parody
Ready for a weekend. Looks like we’re finally getting a break from the rain.
Good Morning, lesbian vampire hunter d-licious smorgasbord Panites!
I’m never catching up. I’m resolved. My pod queue will endure, even when I fade.
Lejon: With a few exceptions, Deadpan among them, if I haven’t listened to a show in a week (or before the new episode hits), I’ll delete it. I tried convincing myself that I would eventually listen to my backlog, but when my time calculations showed me that it would take well over a year to catch up, I decided it wasn’t worth it.
I’ve been purging a few podcasts as of late, and it looks like I’ll cut more as I switch over to GPodder.
CW Star Trek: First Contact
well the last hour
Oh, and I had the misfortune of listening to about 15 seconds of a Bieber song. Hearing a child talk about finding a girl “fine” made me both distraught and distressed. Let’s just quit beating around the bush, release the Bieber sextape, and start publishing Teen Beat XXX and Tiger All-Orgy editions. I’ll be in my bunk. Vomiting.
On a side note, I just realized that “sextape” seems to have entered the vernacular. At least mine, and I think I’ve only seen part of two.
I’ll sextape you right up, and Bieber your consolations to the thespians next door
As for my pod queue, I’m actually able to catch up, but sometimes I decide it’s a good idea to catch the early shows of a cast ( or, conversely, Dragoncon podcast will drop 20 hours of content in one shot ).
I usually just end up being a couple weeks behind, but it seems to be a perpetual couple weeks… makes calling voicemail shows useless.
“Lesbian… our way!”
I am slightly over a month behind on my main queueueueue. My iPod queueueue, which is basically a Deadpan love-fest, is within a week(ish.)
That means I am up to date with the Wolf, almost done with the latest Touching, and really enjoyed 60 lines 2.
BTW – Karen’s Welsh was excellent. Thank you Van for getting that. I listened to BBC Radio Cymru C2 for a while. I had no earthly, but it was neat to listen to.
Don’t leave us hanging, Lo Pan, what happens after the dick and fart walk into the bar??
Or was “thats not what your wife said” the end of the joke??
Re: those pop tunes.
I seem to be sensing a correlation between the level of clothing worn by the “talent” and the quality of their “work”.
“Yes, I guess I AM singing but let’s not focus on that … just look at THESE !!!!”

If you remember and liked Galaxians you should give this one a try.
Oh, Jack, thats all I could come up with this morning. Ill do better next time. I promise…I…I….I promise.
J0e -WHAT??? I CANT HEAR YOU OVER THE SIZE OF THESE BREASTS
Galaxian = :metal:
Unrelated: How to fold a paper boat. http://www.laits.utexas.edu/hebrew/personal/toolbox/acm/boat/boat.html
LP, that was my fault; I’d commented prematurely.
Thats….never happened to you before. Is it me? Was I not funny enough? I can be funny! Just give me another chance! I swear Ill change for you…
“31. Decorate and name your boat. Discuss famous boats and sea battles.”
Best step in anything evar.
I have named my boat “bob”.
The Princess of Matzoi has gone on leave. I have returned in her place to bring you joy and enlightenment.
Children should read… lots and lots of reading is good for you.
In my office – which is full of nerdy deliciousness (yes, nerds are delicious) there is one question that is always ALWAYS asked at least once every day.
Today, it was I, Cj, who asked the question:
“Excuse me. Hi. I’m Cj. Is that a Woot Shirt?”
His response: “Yes. Yes it is.”
Me: “I thought I’d seen that one before.”
Note: “nerds” in my previous post does not refer to those tiny mis-shapen candies, though they are tasty, I would not go as far as to call them “delicious”
I “love” quotation marks.
NERRRRRRRRRRRDS. Donald Gibb should have won an Oscar.
Yes Cj, you are free now for a Wednesday night comment reading, aren’t you?
Woot Shirt, Woot Shirt, second generation
And I’m Geeky at thirty
Woot Shirt, Woot Shirt, realization

An easy way to be seen

Hi, DP. We’re back from being with family for Sly B’s dad’s surgery.
You guys have been busy!
Viva la revolucion!
… but did you hear about the 3 foot tall, city bus driver whose route was always on time?
They called him the “Metro Gnome”.
I get my rain coat.
If he wore the trendiest hair gels and clothes, would he be the metrosexual gnome?
Ugh. I think I have what Ed had.
Man, I hope not. It was no fun.
This isn’t fun and I don’t know which part of me feels worse.
Sorry, ditto! Sorry, Ed!
Aww I hope you feel better soon, ditto.
Oh and I am the proud new owner of an Android phone. Go me.
I am talking to my phone it will type what i say it is cool.
Not sure which is better the fact that i’m talking to the dead ham or the fact that i’m posting to the dead and from my phone but talking to my phone book
deadpan deadpan if it took right
Okay so it isn’t perfect but it’s good deadpan
Good night, dead ham. It’s been a long week.
I’d like to report that I have audio of something to send to one Mr. Jack Mangan… but it will require some editing.
It may very well be my payment, in full, for Pittsburgh’s loss to Montreal.
Don’t tell me that I’m off the hook.
What gives you that right?
Just cuz it’s YOUR show? Huh? You think you can rule us, Mr. Deadpan?
I mean… you will still play it won’t you? Right?
Darn, I’m becoming a minority of DPers that use an iPhone.
An assertive Cj is, is, ….
Feel better ditto!
OK – Cj is back on the hook. And so is JohnBoze (unless they want off the hook. . . . I’d have made a terrible pirate. . . . )
Vintage Science book covers:
One more kiss dear, one more sigh, only this dear it’s goodbye:
Be an individual! Join team Android!
-insert WW2 Propaganda Style Poster here-
So, don’t tease us, CJ. What phone did ya get?
In-laws are out of town for a couple of day visiting other family.
I was given a snuggle as an early BDay present so right now I’m curled up on the couch watching the Stampede parade on Tv (recorded yesterday but I missed it then) and enjoying some down-time
Snuggle = snuggie
Hope you are feeling better, bunny.
Van: I remember some of those covers.
Later today, hubby and I have a memorial to attend followed by a BBQ. I won’t know most of the people there so I’m going to bring my touch so I can sit in a corner, play games, and ignore everybody.
Um, thans ditto buy I’m my regular self, just curling up cause it’s comfy. Looking back at the notes, I think it’s you and Ed that really need the get well wishes.
I’m off to Santa Barbara for the weekend to catch up with friends and family and attend a friend’s wedding. I won’t have any computer access until Sunday evening. Hope everyone’s weekend is enjoyable.
Finished Alpha Protocol. Quite enjoyed it, even if it was a little short. If anybody does decide to play it, a minimal spoiler piece of advise. Of the tree cities, do Moscow last. There’s one person you fight ther that you’ll want to be levelled/buffed up as much as possible before meeting him
Have fun, Amy
Thanks, Bunny! 🙂
Okay, packing up computer now. Until Sunday, everyone. :happy:
According to the parade commentators, one of the requirements of te Stampede queen and princesses is they have to agree not to get married during their reign. Hmmm
Moved from the touch to the netbook. Easier to type.
How dopey is that. There are some women in 1800’s dress, riding horse. Silly women aren’t riding side saddle though. They look very silly sitting astride a horse with their long dresses pulled up.
It reached about 32 C. yesterday (approx 90F). For us northerners, that’s melting weather. Suppose to be a more habitable temperature today (approx 20C)
Recently finished reading Shutter Island. Was quite surprised how close to the movie the book was. You don’t often see a movie follow that close.
CR: Finch by Jeff VanderMeer
Van: I still use an iPone, but only because I’m still under contract with AT&T until January. At that point I will probably go to a droid or an Evo:
A tank just went by on the parade. There are certain areas on the street that now need repaving. That was amazing.
CP: May You Never — Land of Talk
This will make Lo Pan all sorts of Cameron Crazy.
Just listened to the episode while pulling weeds and doing laundry. Great job, everyone! Very fun episode, Jack.
JFC….. Cameron is the new Lucas. Well to be fair not enough people saw Avatar so he really does need to re-release it. Jesus.
Well EssBee thats better than doing weeds and pulling laundry
In other news, Mel Gibson is officially a drunk bigot fuckfuckhead.
Local H = criminally underrated.
And fuck New York too.
It is indeed official.
Just got back from seeing Heartbreaker, all rather predicatable but fun none the less.
Bewarned, if you are a person with a revulsion towards people with less than perfect teeth, you will find the lead actress (Johnny Depps wife in reallife) a bit offputting….
As someone who is rather finicky about teeth, I’d say she is lovely, but the gap would be a bit distracting.
However, there are times when while teeth aren’t perfect, they add a certain character to a person.
justa J0e: re: pop: Very true.
Local H was okay for the month they were in the spotlight.
“She’s Out of My League” was both better and worse than I thought. Overall, I enjoyed it. 🙂
We’re about to rock out to Rock Band 2 (just got it today). You’re all invited to the concert.
Its possible you should actually listen to Local H before commenting.
ditto’s out of my league.
Zangief oughtta be the Moscow villain (RE: Bunny’s Alpha Protocol comment)
OK, everybody do one of these!
Playing PC Tech.
Reinstalling Windows is so damn tedious.
I’m heading to a baby shower this morning. I built a cake out of diapers. I will post pictures of it after it’s been delivered.
I actually liked Local H when they first came out. Had their CD. I think that qualifies.
C: sitting on my ass.
not as much fun as having someone else do it
Sly B is off again to visit her dad in the hospital. I wish I could’ve gone, but I can’t miss any more work.
Pulling in a Sunday Drive by… not sure if that tilts the universe on its axis or not, but I’ll risk it.
Anyone out there live in NJ?
I’m a couple hours out of NJ, if memory serves. And it usually doesn’t.
Listening to the Geek Love episode of TtM. From the Love Long and Prosper promo, am I to understand that the origin of the Deadpan *cough* is from LLaP?
Nope, as a matter of fact, I think Deadpan has been around longer than LLAP… I’d have to do a quick internet check on that, but yeah – number of episodes would have to to confirm that point.
They are two different types of coughs after all.
Had a good day so far. Found out my hubby actually listens to me (not that I really had any doubts 😉 )
I sometimes complain about certain games that aren’t available on PC. For my birthday, hubby gave me a xbox 360 and the games Fable 2 and Alan Wake. Both games I’ve mentione I would have liked to play
I’ve gotten a lot of games over the last couple of days. I asked hubby if I’ll have time to play them all. He laughed at me. Apparently he thinks I go through games at almost the same rate I go through books :cheerful:
Of course, it’s not all about me. Currently watching hubby play Halo3
The PC will still be my first love as far as gaming goes but it’ll be nice to play some of the games I otherwise couldn’t.
Welcome to the wonderful world of Consoles TEB.
Oh and was the 360 one of the new black ones with a 250 gig HD?
Thanks, Van. It took quite a while to Type in all the info they wanted. I was quite surprised. We set all our setting to closed though. I guess we’re not very social 🙂
A free ‘bullet hello’ port of rRootage has went live on the app store:
Yup. It’s all black and purdy.
ZP has a look at No Man Heroes 2:
Right now I’m watching hubby try to get the thing to recognize the second controller. Seem like an exercise in futility to me
/engage jealous mode
Err that’s for having a new 360 and not your hubby having controller problems.
I played a mini round of Halo with hubby. I don’t do FPS well.
His frustrations didt last long. He’s a pretty smart Bunny.
Bunny: You’ll have to give Rock Band a whirl now. 🙂
Happy birthday, whenever it was. 🙂
w00t to Spain!
I was shocked by how dirty the netherlanders (nethers? netherlandiers? netherlandans? hollanders? holandaise?) played.
Yes, Rock Band is highly recommended!!
I’ve spend a few hours this afternoon playing Indiana Jones Lego. It’s been fun.
happy belated birthday from us too
Cj: Ah, thanks for setting me straight.
I guess there’s a birthday that I’m not aware of. Happy Birthday Whomever! YAY!
Okay, I’m out for the day.
welcome 1 and all to a deadpan play by play
featuring: Jack Mangans Deadpan 171
Ooooh, I had better break out the popcorn.
Happy past tense birthday TEB.
Birthday’s actually not until tomorrow :ninja:
Now… dinner time.
no offense, and I ain’t judging, but I don’t understand you game players..
I mean its totally cool- everyone do what they want of course. I dom’t expect anyone to like what I like. i’ve just never been able to figure out the game fetish.
Hugh sez: Neither of our families were ever into games. Not sure why
I remember having an atari back in the day
Hugh sez: and I kicked ass at Pac Man when that was big
but thats where it ended.
Hugh sez: but its cool, you people game all you want
get on with your game, yo
its just kinda funny how so many geeks like games and we consider ourselves geeks.
Hugh sez: we just don’t game
maybe it was the music fetish we had. We fell in love with music and that took the place of games
Hugh sez: maybe. You can’t be into both or something
Future tense then.
/takes aim at the pedant.
Happy pre-birthday bunny!!
we are both cancers. My birthday is next week too.
wow I feel totally invisible here
on to deadpan, which is what this is after all.
Well I did break out the popcorn for your PbP TSHs.
Hugh sez: Oh God… not gilligan

It was just funny how you and bunny were having a conversation in the middle of hugh and I babbling- it was just funny
that was cute! how whomever put the peoples names in the intro thingy

Mark Forman is the shiznit. Yo.

Hugh sez; I never thought about it
LOL. Jack you are killing me with your white guy rap video rant
Hugh sez: We should send Jack that stupid fucking video of the dumb white dudes doing that blackhawks rap
omg it was so bad and YES everyone and their mother sent it to us
Ok we talked over it I need to rewind Jacks rant
and LOOK! one of them has his baseball hat tilted sideways

the “other” dark side
DAMMIT! I have to keep a better eye on when the world cup games happen. I was going to watch the final when it showed up on the DVR. I should have been more on the lookout for people talking about it.
On the other hand, looks like Spain won, and Spain was the only reason I was watching any way. Woo-Hoo.
Jack and oden vms
opps. sorry if I spilt the spain cup beans
hugh sez: saaayyyyy baby
electrical torture devices!

It’s at the town’s railway station TSHs.
he’s cracking himself up!
I hear ya EssBee.
not saying everyone on here were obsessive gamers. Just lots of game talk.. lots of people seem to love games. Not sure why Hugh and I never got into it.
ahhh.. thats what it was.
I think she told me about that town when she went to see her family in Wales when we were kids adn she learned now to say the name and she was very proud of herself. She tld me about it and i told her she was lying to me 🙂
she got someone to send her a pic of it.

I cannot abide people who are mean to Sly B. Cannot.
I made myself macaroni and bacon/tomato. Sunday is generally eat like a kid day at our house. Man, yummy.
I’m leaning toward grilled cheese sammiches myself today.
of course I don’t have any tomato… I need tomato on my own grilled cheese…
I like tomato on a grilled cheese. Or bbq sauce.
TEB: Coincidentally, Michelle’s birthday is also tomorrow.
I’m really going to need to catch up on podcasts… this ep sounds so cool, and I get to wear the “I Contributed” button.
We do have the “I Contributed to Deapan, motherfucker!” buttons, right?
Home again, home again.
Hope everyone had a great deadpan weekend. My kids are in San Antonio, my wife is in Chicago and I’m on my own for the week, so look out 🙂
*wolf whistle* at Ed… Hey there… home alone you say? 😉
So, I ran to the grocery store, acquired tomatoes, rye bread, and creamer… and whipped cream.
Oh and paper towels.
So, I’m now enjoying a grilled cheese and tomato on rye with a side of the rest of the tomato.
Wee, blissing out on all the TSH comment goodness.
Yay, a play-by-play! :happy:
I have the house all to myself this week, too. My family is on vacation in a rented house at the beach. This is the first year that both of us young people have had summer jobs, so neither of us can spend the entire month up there. Instead, we’re each going up there to join our parents at different times during that month.
My weekend in Santa Barbara was fun. The wedding was beautiful and joyous, and I saw a whole lot of old college friends again. It was a wonderful weekend getaway.
I just finished listening to this episode. I agree: The choral version of “Here Come The Hawks” was, indeed, awesome, if I do say so myself. My favorite part is that I wasn’t the only one going “doo doot doo-doot” along with the instrumental interlude. :biggrin:
Now to get caught up. . .
Have a Happy Birthday tomorrow, Bunny!! Make your husband mop the bathroom floor topless for a change.
Still not fully caught up.
We went to the beach
Everybody had matching towels
Somebody went under a dock
And there they found a rock
But it wasn’t a rock
It was a rock lobster
The TSH PBP warmed my cockles.
The intro was excellent (sorry to anyone who felt excluded), contributed by Kurt from St. George.
Ed Home Alone! Beware of Joe Pesci and. . . that other guy.
Lejon, pass a Happy Birthday on to Meesh! I have some audio for her (as a birthday gift. . . .yeah. . . ). Are you in NJ?
Cj, if that gets stuck in – – too late.
We do need “I contributed to Deadpan, Motherfucker!” shwag.
OK, my glut of comments is done. BB to say :mush:
Jack, No, I’m not in NJ, however, a former girlfriend of mine recently found me on LinkedIN, and she’s in NJ. I was curious if anyone out there might be in her vicinity.
Oh, and Good Night :drevil:
Ah, Monday, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
Um, yeah, I’m pretty much done counting.
And, now that it’s official – Happy Birthday, TEB!
Happy Bday, Bunny!
Happy Bday Bunny!
how about a cake like this one?:
Getting Caught up on comments…
Re: Local H
I really enjoyed everything I recall hearing from them. I also saw them play at summer fest ( http://www.summerfest.com ) on one of the larger stages (maybe number 2? <— not a comment on the quality of the music played on that stage)
Good morning, Pan!
I’m heading out to my Monday at work. It’s nice to not dread my job… I mean, really really nice! Sorry if I’m going on and on about it already.. :blush:
And… more importantly!!!
BIRTHDAY BEAUTIFUL BUNNY!!!
I’m back to work today after a much interrupted and short week last week. Eeek!
Happy Birthday Bunny!
Happy birthday, Bunny! :happy:
Happy birthday Bunny!

I can’t believe how much time I spend on conference calls nowadays.
I’m dreading the next one. I fully expect to be ambushed by someone.
Have I become Alice? Must I unleash my Fist of Doom? 🙂
ditto, I feel your pain and wrath. Conference calls are a giant timesuck, and the opposite of productivity.
You could be a Vet like Darth Vader:
I don’t think the Vet would have many conference calls.
I agree Conference calls are the opposite of productivity.
Nice one, reaper!
CP: Hedonist — Sharon Lang
reaper: He’s just being “proactive”.
Gawd, I hate that word.
Thanks EssBee, I only wish I could say I was creative enough to have made it myself.
too much time on your hands + Arjen Robben turning in to a ball=
I nearly spit out my water at some of these pictures.
proactive and synergy are some of the words I hate the most…
I could get a good look at a T-Bone by sticking a Bull up a butchers ass…
wait thats not right

I had a case of the Mondays, but I dropped it on my foot and it spilled out all over the floor of the breakroom. So we are fresh out of properly functioning Mondays until the new oreder arrives. Also I need some ice for this bruise on my foot.
CD: Deciding weather I should Conspire to stop the shipment of Mondays so we just don’t have Mondays any more or speed up the shipment so we will get functioning Mondays.
We can’t lose this Monday this year due to it being a very special Monday.

I have been waiting to watch she show for far to long
Lejon – Showing his geek love…
Wolf: is the best kind of love… always giving…
reaper: Nice, we’re on disc 5 of season 1. Enjoying it.
B5 is one of my favorite shows.
JN, I have been wanting to watch for so long I’m glad I can finely watch on Netflix. it was available on Hulu for a little while but I didn’t bother because I noticed with only a few days left.
I just went to get a big gulp iced tea (and to fall off the fumar wagon), and saw a huge Mafia Wars display in 7-11. WTH?
Happy Birthday Bunny!
We will defend your birthday from the Monday that is trying to horn in on it.
EssBee – sounds like this hug is a little late but pass it along to Sly B **HUG**
“Metro Gnome” …. heh
Does anyone have a surefire recipe for making sweet pickles? The zucchini are starting to pile up.
This coffee is not good.
JOe, my mom makes a mean bread & butter pickle. Interested? If so, I can get it and email it to ya.
Thanks for the hug!
maybe a bit early but so far the only complaint I could have is he acting is a bit weak and so are the off station graphic but not enough to keep me from watching. The story is already interesting enough.
Going out to lunch with a co-worker friend.
I could get used to this.
cool game themed drink:
Cool gay themed drink:
Make reaper’s drink and take the “id” off the name.
I hate sweet pickles.
I hate sweet pickle relish.
the concept of sweet pickles makes my mouth pucker in a non-voluntary fashion.
Sweet pickles were forced on me as a child.
As a child I developed a deep abiding loathing of the sweet pickle.
For years, I thought the only relish I could have was sweet pickle relish, and it made me retch to hear any vendors offer relish on my hot-dogs.
If there is a soft chewy center to the universe, it is not a sweet pickle.
In a vain effort to show awareness for the sweet pickle dilemma, some wise person devised “dill” pickles. A tart, tasty alternative. Dill relish brought me new understanding of the term “to relish” something.
So, long winded story short: I don’t have a sweet pickle recipe for you J0e.
I’m with Lejon only brought from a 10 to a 5.
Sweet relish has it’s place just not many of them.
Sweet pickles has it’s one place: The garbage.
Dill is the way to go…
(maybe I should put that in a different way but I’m lazy and that could be funny)
I’m with Lejon on the sweet pickle thing. However, Lady J’s mom makes them from time to time. I can try to get her recipe for you, justa J0e.
Back from Vegas. WOO! If you need some money, I left plenty there for you!
Now to get caught up with comments. Weeeee!!!
What’s the recipe for sweet pickle?
sugar + vinegar?
Sugared gherkins…looks revolting.
That’s quite a pickle you have there. 😉
Van, IMO they taste as good/bad as they look.

CP: Drinkin’ Wine Spo Dee O Dee — Jerry Lee Lewis
I think sweet pickles are a Southern thing for the most part. I like em okay, but don’t like sweet relish.
I like relish, though I think pepper relish is even better.
CP: A Bar In Amsterdam — Katzenjammer
To top off the Mondayness, it is currently 80 degrees in my office.
I recall the fired pickles at Oak Creek Brewery in Sedona were pretty tasty.
Yes, they were. 🙂
Too bad I can’t hang out with you guys more often.
Same here. Meaning more than never.
ditto: I think it is sad you need a law saying “you can do this lawful thing”
some cute overload to help your Monday-ites:
CP: Misery — Soul Asylum
Never fuck with the comedian. He’s got the mike.
Damn typo tlak: “fired” = “fried”. Fired pickles would be something else altogether.
Mean to Sly B = supremely uncool.
Well that’s it, I’m jailbreaking my iPad:
Were these fried dill pickles? Or fried sweet pickles? Oskar Blues in Longmont serves fried dills, dubbed “Bill Clinton’s favorite snack.”
So who been mean to SlyB Essbee?
I saw a place offering “fried PB&J sandwiches”. Say whaaaaa ?
An asshole, Van. He who shall remain nameless.
…deep fried Twinkies…
If you have a buck to spend in the app store this rather good puzzler is worth checking out:
Especially if you like your heroes to have sideburns….
Deep fried pizza is a hardening artery alternative to all that bacon.
Monte Cristo…. deep-fried Ham,Turkey, and Swiss sandwich – dusted in powdered sugar, and served with Raspberry preserves as a dipping sauce…
I feel the need to pop an aspirin just reading that abomination.
That “abomination” as you call it, is totally awesome. Mmm… I’ve got to stop by Chompie’s one of these days…
Lejon: I have a slightly more healthy version of it, and I make it on the occasional Sunday. It’s amazing. We use kir royale jam on them.
JØ: Just having someone validate that the Monte Cristo is amazing, suits me fine… Damn, I’m getting a hankering for one right now… STUPID doctor’s appointment…
And it’s goodbye to Harvey Pekar:
Monte Cristos are my most favorite sammiches evAr! YUM!
I had some fried dill pickles at Five & Diner a week or so ago and enjoyed them… they were better than the Hooters ones, but I like the Hooters dipping sauce better… which just sounds wrong, but it’s the truth.
CP: The Naked Rain — The Waltons
Hooters has dipping sauce butter?!
Its called semen.
WHOOPS! I hit the self censorship button way too late.
Oh you love me.
I love you, but dipping sauce + semen is definitely on the top 5 list of why I bat for the team I do.
Hey I dont have a choice in that no matter what team I bat for…
CP M.I.A. “Teqkilla”
New album’s 3rd track. So far me likey, but i’ve heard this one and XXXO (2nd track) already.
I have a love/hate relationship with M.I.A.
Lo: Can’t say she’s ever won me over either, though there is some interesting stuff on the new album.
I shall fish out the recipe, Jack
I don’t think I’ve heard any M.I.A..
OMG track 10 is melting my face.
CP M.I.A. “Meds and Feds”
I have a love/hate relationship with semen.
Gruyere cheese, 1/4 C sour cream, 1 T Dijon mustard, 1 T maple syrup, dash Tabasco, 3 or 4 eggs, turkey, ham or prosciutto.
Whip together sour cream, mustard, maple syrup, Tabasco, eggs. This is your batter for dipping.
Make sandwich. I do bread, turkey, ham, Gruyere, ham, turkey, bread.
Dip in batter, coating sandwich. Fry until golden brown.
I also have a love/hate relationship with Jeremy’s semen.
Wow, I did not see all this semen talk coming.
You never do til its in your face.
I lovelovelove MIA, but don’t have the new album. Hey! I should get the new album.
Pitchfork hates the new album which prolly means Ill enjoy it
“Pitchfork”? Great, now I’ve got “Forkboy” stuck in my head. Where’s my “Natural Born Killers” soundtrack? . . .
In the 2$ bin?
Why isn’t the new m.i.a. on itunes?
Really? I thought it was a good soundtrack. Lots of variety. The movie doesn’t hold up.
It should be Ess.
Oh I just bought the Airheads and Beavis and Butthead Experience so Im not talking quality of t he soundtrack. Im talking thats where you find it these days.
Yeah, very true.
Crap EssBee youre right
90s soundtracks rulz.
Well I picked up a few songs with a bday gift card. I can’t get the one that something’ed Jeremy’s face off though. Darn.
“You never do til it’s in your face” LOL
I agree. I still think “Lost Highway” is one of the best ever.
And the worst movie ever. Soundtrack does rock and roll tho very much.
I mean come on, EssBee!
Soundtracks I own:
The X-Files: The Album
I Am Sam
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Radio Sunnydale
Dave Chappelle’s Block Party (which is a doc I’d highly recommend)
Garden State is a fantastic soundtrack. I just saw I Am Sam this year. Good flick.
I Am Sam is a total tear-jerker.
YES. I said “jerker.” Go ahead.
OMG, Mel Gibson is scary.
You already did, EssBee. You already did.
LOLZ!!!!!!! N-Word, C-Word Distance Themselves from Mel Gibson
Never saw Trainspotting.
Okay, that’s odd. There’s a local Mexican joint we’ve been to. Good food, nice place. Thought I could maybe order some pick-up. Go to their website, and the only menu they have is their drink menu. Yeah.
I’m off to make Asian meatballs – which just means balls of meat with garlic, onion, fish sauce, and lime zest – served with rice and lettuce (we make a wrap).
Well…. I was reading the above comments and …
Long Pan is dirty.
That is all.
(disclaimer: that doesn’t mean I don’t like it)
So, my Ipod Touch is now getting all iOS4’d – Steve told me to do it.
What am i getting myself into now?
Happy Birthday Bunny!
CP: Jamie Cullum – Wheels
Oh, this is lovely.
I’ve updated my ipod to OS4.
Now, Itunes tells me that I need to update Itunes in order to use my “new” Ipod.
I’ve been trying to update Itunes for the last week already and it has failed every attempt.
I may be in for a long evening.
Ed: When I upped to OS4, all of the music and videos were wiped from my phone. Pictures, contacts, apps were all fine. I have been told by my neighbor that his phone now runs faster with OS4. Mine runs much, MUCH slower. I do like being able to put apps into folders now. 10 pages of apps down to 3 pages of apps (hoopy-doopy).
Well, apparently all it required was some careful surgery to remove some corrupted Quicktime references that can cause the install to crash. Found lots of useful hits on the error I was getting.
I just hope this damn thing still plays music. Call me old fashioned.
Ed, I’m into the Goodkind book now – digging it!
Here is the purest, most distilled piece of truth you will ever see for the rest of your life. Bask in it:
EssBee – I just finished the sixth book today. It has been called his version of Atlas Shrugged, though I must say I find his version better. Atlas Shrugged is pure depression without hope. Faith of the Fallen starts us down that road, but brings it around.
It is proving to be a very rich world Goodkind has come up with. More than I expected. I think you will be pleased overall.
Essbee – bah on the descentors! Bring on the Bread & Butter pickle recipe!
Tonights odd occurance.
So I’m on a bike ride and as I pass a neighbors house my eyes scan the neatly stacked pile-o-stuff at the curb. Seems someone has done some major house cleaning. I am doing my best to avert my gaze (just like at garage sales, you have to keep repeating the mantra “IT”S OTHER PEOPLE”S JUNK!”) but something about the box on the end catches my eye and I stop and look in.
There in the fading light of day I see someone’s entire baseball card collection.
What’s a boy to do?
It followed me home of course. 5 albums full of 1990 – 92 baseball cards in near mint condition … including several “special” cards in their own hard plastic sleeves.
It all feels very wrong. The people who threw this stuff out have lived in the house less than a year and I really haven’t had the chance to meet them. I have never seen any kids about so I suspect they kids have moved off … but who throws out their kid’s baseball card collection?
I fear there is a bad story involved here … but I couldn’t leave these things out to get rained on.
Joe: That seems rather sad.
Hmm… J0e, that does seem weird… maybe they didn’t belong to a kid?
Still weird that they were tossing and not selling them.. :-/
Hell, it happened often enough in the 50’s and 60’s, that’s the whole reason there is a market in the first place. Hundreds of moms entirely ignorant of the potential value.
Slightly odd that they weren’t more aware now, but…
ditto – Thanx for Die Antwoord link.
B5 is on Netflix? Queued!
The Dark Knight
J0e – I hear about that happening shortly after a couple marries, but that’s about the only time normally.
The “Great Expectations” sdtk is excellent.
As is the “Cruel Intentions” sdtk.
As is the “A Life Less Ordinary” sdtk.
And of course, “Singles”.
J0e, there might not be a sad reason for the baseball card sale, the thirty-something could have moved out long ago and told the parents, “yeah whatever, I haven’t looked at those cards in years”. You’re probably not profiting from someone’s misfortune.
Late. Blech. Night, :drevil: s
Morning Pan, on the sound tracks you own theme:
The Black Hole (LP and audio tape)
2001 (audio tape)
Off to see the doc about the results of my X-ray.
(In case anyone was wondering, I do not endorse the Sliver soundtrack. It has Enigma and nothing else going for it. Blech.)
I know this is incredibly dorky, but I don’t care.
Vampire Diaries start shooting season 2 today! Yay!
Sooo X-Rays shows I have the first signs of osteoarthritis in my back and knee.
If I was a horse I would be heading to the gnackers yard.
Oh dear, it would be a bad idea for me to type out the whole list of movie scores/soundtracks that I have. I don’t think Jack’s host has that much space.
Yee Ha! 110°F heat index today!
Whose ready to come for a visit?
I’m with you Ed. Far too many sound tracks to list them all. Some highlights though would be:
Emmet Otter’s Jugband Christmas
A Clockwork Orange
The Ultimate Pink Panther
justa J0e: I asked Lady J to get the recipe. It’s apparently her aunt’s. It’s pending, but I have no timeframe for you.
re: Ayn Rand: I’ve done no additional research past when I first learned about her. My biggest complaint, and certainly the easiest target, is her belief that some nice chap will make roads for the common good.
re: cards: I had quite a few baseball cards, all mint, growing up. When I finally turned my thoughts to selling them, I found that I would be lucky to get something like $5 for them. Tossed.
Vanamonde: That’s shit. Hopefully there’s some PT kind of thing that helps?
Animatrix – decent, couple gems
As Seen on TV – does this count? I think so. Some really good stuff
Beavis & Butthead Do America – good
Garden State – excellent
Gladiator – great, if you’re into that sort of thing. We are.
Lost Highway – excellent
Spawn – really good
Matrix – good
Matrix: Reloaded – disc 1 is good, 2 is shite.
Natural Born Killers – good
Robotech: Battlecry Game Soundtrack – sucks ass
Scream 2 – I’m not sure I ever listened to this. But here it is.
Trainspotting – Huh. We do have this. Looks good. My memory is slipping.
X-Files – I don’t remember. I think it’s decent.
Eternal Champions on CD – music is recorded in Red Book audio, and it’s decent to listen to once in a while if you enjoyed the game.
Hardware – if in the mood, pretty decent. Must replace.
Johnny Mnemonic – Another crap movie with a really good soundtrack. Must replace.
Lords of Thunder game – also with Red Book audio. Awesome guitar, fantastic music. On my to-replace list.
Here are soundtracks that come to mind (I’m sure I own more):
Until the End of the World
Natural Born Killers
Purple Rain (LP)
Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me
O Brother Where Art Thou
And Motion Picture Scores:
Dances With Wolves
Twin Peaks TV Score
Soundtracks I have off the top of my head.. hmmm
Rocky Horror Picture Show
The Other Sister
Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey
The Little Mermaid
13 Going on 30
And with that… I’m off to work.
Hope you all have a magnificently stress-free day!
Oh, and Dr. Horrible’s SingAlong Blog
No love for the ‘Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?’ ST? Surprisingly downhomey wonderful.
J0e Id have done the same thing with the cards. If for no other reason I’m a packrat and I hate seeing things go to waste.
Crap, JB already gave it love. Dammit why cant I read right the first time?
We really like soundtracks, especially movie scores. I don’t have all of ours on my iPod, but here’s what I have right now:
Babylon 5 Volume 2
City of Angels
Chronicles of Riddik — Escape from Butcher Bay
The Crow: City of Angels
Godzilla — The Album
The Postman (Il Postino)
Star Wars SE (IV, V, & VI)
Ones that I know we have:
10 Things I Hate About You
How To Train Your Dragon
Lord of The Rings (all 3)
Rocky Horror Picture Show
Tears of the Sun
X-Files: The Movie (score and soundtrack)
I’m sure I’m missing plenty from my list.
No Flesh Gordon? Thats tops on my pops.
Oh, I do also have Dr. Horrible and Oh Brother. COME ON
justa, you got it babe. Recipe coming.
Van, thinking about you. I just had a mess of labs to figure out what horrible thing I have that makes me cranky and sore and puffy and bleh. We can be in this together.
Together we can.
compelling argument engage:
Good Morning :pan: !
I refuse to comment on my soundtracks without having my music collection present…
Re: Sound tracks. Me likey. I get some good music I would have never picked up. And some of my favorite bands get some exposure. One problem I have is some of the music I recognize form movies doesn’t make the sound track.
Guess that is what I get for not listening to much new music for about 10 years, liking classical music and liking Christian rock.
If it weren’t for the kids I don’t thing I would have downloaded music made this century. I have to many podcasts/books to listen to.
Soundtracks? How did I know that the three I own would already be mentioned by the other Deadpanites?
City of Angels
I’d really like to get:
A Clockwork Orange
The Lord of the Rings
Dont forget Avatar!
Lo: That score is pretty good, especially if you like Horner’s work.
The only Matrix album I have is the score to the 3rd movie, which I like quite a bit.
As in “Do You Want To Date My?”
Flesh Gordon or Avatar…? Wakka.
CP: Sleeping — Man In Gray
The one without the penisaurus.
This is way too cute.
Make the bad man stop
Rhettro’s not *that* bad. 😉
CP: What Your Soul Sings — Massive Attack
Lo Pan, don’t forget what now…
R.I.P George Steinbrenner
I morbidly laugh every time i here massive heart attack because it makes me thing of Attack of the killer tomatoes with a different shape.
I also own the Crow sdtk (excellent), Natural Born Killers (good), Pi (pretty good), plus a bunch of others. The 3 I mentioned last night really stuck out in my mind as being good.
The Crow sdtk may be my fave though. What a great album.
Jack, I agree The Crow sdtk never left the 12 disk changer in my car other than when I ripped it and just just because it was hard to get to and I should have installed it in a better place.
Your dizzy head is conscience laden
Not to sound cruel, but I recall many people praying for Steinbrenner’s death in the 80s. I think there was still a lot of bitterness about the Reggie Jackson thing.
Ah reaper, I remember those trunk installed multi-disk changers
And oh yeah:
O Brother, Where Art Thou
Patch Adams (it was a free promo)
X-Files TV and Movie sdtks.
I guess Al Davis will be next
Jack, The joy of have a highschool job and lots of disposable income. The next car I had (94 t-bird) I installed the changer in the glove box. It took a little modifying but it fit. I would have rather put it in the center console but it was a little to small.
CP: She’s White — Electric Six
I hate it when the console is too small for your big equipment.
with out having the sound tracks in front of me I can remember off had having
Interview with a vampire
Set it off
I know I had a lot more some as a result of the highschool job again, some from the kids and some from my late brother.
EssBee, It is a cross I must bare…
Oooh, I have Tank Girl also.
Me too, reaper, me too.
Tank Girl = teh_bomb
EssBee, I got Take girl for the Magnificent Bastards song but found plenty of other gems on it.
oops take = tank
and yes Lo I agree Tank Girl = The bomb
ooo lunch time
and time to finish Babylon 5: S1E1
Is there anything to be done about your knees, Van?
The Crow! :smacks head:
Of course. I also have the Crow, Crow 2, and Queen of the Damned soundtracks.
Is the Run, Lola, Run soundtrack as good as all that?
reaper – Maximum Overdrive. Excellent!
That Chun-Li is charming
And reaper – Maximum Overdrive? Awesome!
Nomad Scry, I think most people forget it was a sound track. it is one of my favs
Maximum Overdrive… *swooon*
Yes Van, sorry to learn the bad news. I hope the treatment is effective and easy.
I’m starting to find the out of station graphic in Babylon 5 charming. It makes me thing of Tron everything I see them. I like it!
CW: Babylon 5: S1E2
I like this show
holy shit is that a mini Etch-A-Sketch with out the knobs!!!
Van: Sucks about your knees. That’s never fun.
Maximum Overdrive soundtrack was great.
Ya they when there fing funny:
I love think Geek.
For the moment, nothing to be done and it’s ok for now, but will get worse in the future.
Thanks everybody, I know I often joke about feeling old, but today it sort of hit home that I’m getting on a bit …
Oh, Whoopie!! “Mel Gibson is my friend. He’s not a racist.”
missed the comment over night. Hope you can do something to help the knees and back Van
interesting read about caffeine
Van, I feel your pain. I have osteoarthritis in my knees also. I was on crutches for it… gruesome pain!
They injected me with Synvisc – has that been suggested/mentioned to you? It worked!
Re: Movie Soundtracks
“Blade Runner” is most excellent. Sorry Van.
I am also a “O Brother, Where Art Thou” owner.
Today’s bike ride discovery.
Someone was throwing out a used but PERFECTLY GOOD drafting table! Complete with the up and down straight edge thingy and a tilting surface … I couldn’t fit it on my bike and have absolutely no place to put it but I mean … Come ON!!
More zucchini issue forth from my garden.
Corn can not be far off.
as far as graphic novels go I have only read watchman anyone agree with anything on this list:
I would like to read more of them I just don’t end up having/making the time for them
justa J0e, if you had a pencil and some paper you could quick draw up some device made from things available on the side of the road so you could get to home…
Interesting reaper, I’ve never heard of any on that list. So far I have read four graphic novels total. If I were to rank them it would be something like:
2. Kingdom Come
3. Batman: Return of the Dark Knight
4. Batman: The Killing Joke
so thats how they work:
Exactly what Rhett said about the Graphic Novels, although I’d rank Dark Knight Returns #2. Never heard of any of the titles in that Top 10.
I’d also add Frank Miller’s Elektra miniseries (the one with the demon and the Kennedy).
Joe: Gah! I’ve been wanting to get a drafting table for a long time now. 🙁
reaper: Nope. I don’t like that list at all, and I’ve heard of most of those. I agree with the suggestions that Rhettro made. I can make a bunch of suggestions, but it really depends on what you like to read. For instance, “Blankets” (http://www.powells.com/biblio/1891830430) is awesome, but not everyone would like it.
Jack: I love that one.
“I’ve got the button” 🙂
reaper: If you liked “Watchmen” you’ll probably enjoy a lot of Moore’s other works such as “V for Vendetta” and “From Hell”.
Miller is also good, but sometimes he can really go astray, like his most recent works. Most of “Sin City” is good, and “300” is excellent. “Batman: Year One” is also very good.
To be fair, the list that reaper posted wasn’t bad. Hellblazer tends to be a good series, though I haven’t read the one on the list. And I know that “Daredevil: Born Again”, “Alias” and “We 3” are highly regarded. I just don’t think that the items on that list are really great. Good? Yes. Great? No.
ditto I think other novels from Moore is a good place to start. I tend to get comfortable with an author and read a lot of there stuff.
I had a feeling that list had things there were not very well know here at least because I didn’t remember anyone saying anything about them.
Graphic Novels: I’m fond of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and V for Vendetta
As an alternate list, how about this one?
I don’t entirely agree with it either–every list is personal–but I think it represents a better selection of great graphic novels.
The only title that is on both lists is “The New Frontier”. I haven’t read it–I never really liked the art style–but maybe I should.
And then there is manga…. 🙂
I have quite a few graphic novels and manga, even though I’m pretty picky about what I buy. If you are ever looking for something “different” let me know.
I like to think I’m the best judge of what I should or do like.
Not to say i’m not open to suggestions
I totally agree, which is why I never trust lists.
ditto this list is a perfect example:
I only hate one of these and in fact like the top 2
Someone posted Die Antwoord? I was just gonna!
Blade 1 and 2
Matrix 1 and 3
Last of the Mohicans
ST2 TSFS (vinyl)
ST TNG 2 First Contact
Karate Kid 2 (vinyl)
Saturday Night Fever (vinyl)
American Grafitti (vinyl)
I know there are a bunch more
I think the world needs a DJ Utopia Die Antwoord remix. . .
ATTN: Quick FYI: RE: Future Deadpan participatory projects: (That’s 4 colons)

-Summer Palooza 2010. Voting closes tomorrow!
-Unnamed fun musical idea that I intend to pitch soon.
Mann gegen Mann
I have Grease on 8-track but no more player.
I had a 70 Challenger for a number of years that came with an 8-track player if it wasn’t $50 to buy a replacement I could have been jamming out to Aqua Lung in all it’s 8 track glory.
I think if I where this bunny I would be scared shitless:
Jack: Count me in.
reaper: me too
5 colons, that’s a lot of shit sausage.
reduce reuse and recycle?
“What is EssBee’s Email?” he asked the room.

Never bought the Crow soundtrack, but I have the Graeme Revell score.
