good morning :pan:
Yes it is, morning that is, the good is still a work in progress.
This is pure insanity. I skimmed through the 10 minutes, so I may have missed the craziest bits.
California, I give you your governor’s Japanese TV commercials:
So Cup a Noodle’s has steroids in them, now I understand.
I liked when Arnold turned Japanese at about the 2:38 mark. That would have been a perfect time to use that dumb song by The Vapors.
hi ho hi ho…..
What you need to know:
Jack, When you are reading the URL’s in a greasy nipples you should throw a niner in there…
AT&T + Apple fun facts:
Van – sorry about the curb. People have no sense!
I’ll take ten!
I go to 11!
Beautiful sunny morning.
My cat has been a real pain the last few days. For whatever reason, two A.M has been freaking her out lately.
Thanks for the hugs. It got pretty laughable at the end, accusing that every woman who replied to my FB status updates was after me.
CW: Covert Affairs episode 2
Yes Cj, there are icebergs in northern Canada.
We aren’t after you? cough
“My Butt” – heh
Ah Covert Affairms, the English guy was the baddie..what a surprise.
This is not a job I would want:
My grandpa was a lineman for the local power company so he never worked with the high voltage like this or helicopters just bucket trucks
Ah you are only after my voice EssbeIsn’t about time the Canadians had a turn as the villians in US spy series…I’m just saying…
Well that one got a bit garbled.
doesn’t take as long as you would think
So I’m about a third of the way through the book Palimpsest by Catherynne Valente. Lat night hubby asked what the book was about and I really couldn’t answer his question. Has anybody else read this? It’s fairly new. Can you tell me what it’s about?
My first question is, why?
You do have a way with words, Van. *swooooooooooooooooon*
Bunny, haven’t read that, but just finished two books:
1) Wizards First Rule – Terry Goodkind; I liked this and will definitely read #2 in the series. I did this one by audiobook, but might actually read the next one, which is high praise.
2) Duma Key – Stephen King; LOVED this one and highly recommend it. I always say that King “does a good middle,” but this book held me all the way through.
I just started:
1) The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo – S. Larson via audiobook; I’m enjoying it.
2) The Meaning of Matthew – Judy Shepard
TEB, maybe the review will help:
“and symbolism whose purpose can be difficult to untangle”
Yup, I’ll go along with that
Bunny, To keep your watermelon cold when you are going to the beach.
It might also help to keep the vodka or rum smell in when at said beach…
Landlocked – no beach to speak of
Never tried the watermelon full of alcohol thing
Hubby’s doing the Halo thing again. I think I’m jealous.
He even got the books and is just about the first one. Said it was pretty good considering it was written in on a very quick deadline.
CP: Calling All The People — 4 Non Blondes
TEB: haven’t read that one yet, but it is on my list.
I just finished “A People’s History of The United States”, “Gödel’s Proof”, and “20th Century Boys” vol 8.
I just started reading “The National Geographic Field Guide to Photography”, and am party way through “Read Real Japanese Essays”. I haven’t picked what fiction book to read. I might pick up another Pratchett I haven’t read.
“and symbolism whose purpose can be difficult to untangle”
Reminds me of the end of “Sophie’s World”.
I thought Nylund’s Halo books were pretty good.
I really like the contrasts in this picture:
ditto, hubby has the first edition of the Halo books (the first trilogy isn’t available on e-reader). Book one is full of typo’s. He finds it amusing.
Bunny, I have Lake Winnebago about 50 ft north (but no beach) Lake Michigan about 40 miles east with lots of beach but I never took a watermelon there or filled one with alcohol either.

Gil and Patman have their first encounter with Felicia Day.
Oh and wOOt! I got naming credit this episode, Thanks Jack!
After months of wishing my razor worked properly I was really enjoying it being back up to it’s original stuff this morning.
… until I went to turn it off and it wouldn’t. The button was jammed.
So much for small victories.
Take it all back apart. Musk about with it a while. Get it turned off. Put it all back together. Wonder what tomorrow will bring.
BTW: When given a choice … I’d recommend always taking the bright, non-foreboding train that is headed into the light.
J0e, tomorrow will bring science
Maybe it will only 1/2 work since it has already coved full working and full not working.

Interesting… I wonder if learning to play the tuba has had a special effect on my growing up…
I just got a work email from Yoda:
“Looking forward to meeting you, I am”
snowcave with dead skier FTW.
I wish I’d had more music training when I was younger
I wish the music training I received when I was younger was better. Ah the perks of growing up in a small town. =P
Shout out to Wolf, in that best of 2007 WR show, you do a promo where you sing along to a song, what’s the group and song title?
I have a deep foreboding that all you Dark Star virgins will hate it when you get round to watching the movie.
That song is called “Making Me Nervous” by Brad Sucks. Shoot me an email if you want more
Vanamonde: I missed what happened but, .
‘Cause it’s the thought that counts, right?
I am a Dark Star virgin.
Me too. I’ll have to look it up. No idea what it is.
I am a Dark Star virgin also.
Van – The Kerb?? That is teh SUCK! GAR! Send in the pirates!
I am also a DS Virgin.
Are we talking actual surfing ON doritos?
Yep, also a virgin there if so.
I was thinking of turkey stuffing; cool ranch might work well.
Dark Star virgin here as well. But my 10 year old self liked the short lived series “Quark” so I am hopeful.
OMFG this is awesome mildly NSFW:
Are the doritos the surf board? Or the waves?
reaper: I think that qualifies as NSFW1
LOL x 2.
EssBee, a sea of Doritos?!?!?!? = Heaven
ditto, yes I agree NSFW1 is perfect
Doritos? Scaramouche, scaramouche will you do the Fandango?
I think I actually meant Donald Sutherland for DS. I am a Donald Sutherland virgin.
With or without Doritos.
Little known fact (outside of Canada): Donald Sutherland is the son of Tommy Douglas, the man primarily responsible for the Canadian health care system.
Actually, I got my names mixed up. Kiefer Sutherland is the grandson of Tommy Douglas. Silly me. I should check my facts before I post.
Dorito Sith: little known rank in the Sith, not quite a dark lord of the sith, actually closer to dark lard of the sith. Well, more like the dork gamer of the sith, with dip…
“Where’s the pizza, man?”
Yes, but Jack Bauer’s father was James Cromwell. What an evil bastard he was.
CP: July Flame — Laura Veirs
Has anyone name Cromwell been anything but an evil bastard? 😉
Just a Rhettroical question.
In defence of OC, Charles 1st and his gang were hardly saints.
Wow, I just read a few chapters in the Matt Shepard book at lunch. Maybe a mistake for a workday . . .
Didn’t say they were.
EssBee: Yeah, that doesn’t sound like a cheerful book.
I’m glad I’m reading it, but whammy did it take me right back to that moment. That was probably the worst few months of my life – October and November of 1998.
I might save that one for reading at home, though!
I’d never thought of Oliver Cromwell as “The O.C.”. *shudder*
Which has been the source of more exaggerated drama?
The Real Housewives of New Jersey?
Talk about high brow, low brow.
Talk about mashups.
CP: Life In Technicolor — Coldplay
Oliver Cromwell thought of himself a protector of England.
James Cromwell, on the other hand, has played a lot of evil bastards, and 1 sort of bastard…
That still doesn’t make him a nice guy.
Yeah. I’m never going to drink that beer. 🙂
That looks a little squirrely.
ditto: it does in his own head…
ditto, what turns you off of the beer, $765 price tag or THE FUCKING SQUIRREL (stoats or rabbit) “WRAPPED” AROUND THE BOTTLE. I had to shake my head and read it 3 more times.
You could always just mount it on the wall.
OK. Taxidermy has its place. THAT IS NOT IT
Lejon: It doesn’t matter what he thought about himself.
reaper: yeah, the price tag is unappealing, but so is the fact that a DEAD RODENT is wrapped around the bottle. The only way to make it more unappealing is if the squirrel was wrapped around the bottle THE OTHER WAY AROUND. lol 😉
ditto, that would be much worse. next they might make wine in a raccoon
I can just imagine the beer tap. Lift the tail to pour the beer. 🙂
Well that’s gross, but not the as gross as the ice lollies with scorpions frozen inside them.
As disturbing as that squirrel beer is, why would they go with a blonde style over a Nut Brown?
(and let the joke deluge begin)
Back later. busybusybusy.
Sorry my mistake, just regular lollies but still yukky:
..and on the booze front:
van: that is GROSS!
Van: Did WndrWolf point you to Brad Sucks’ website?
Van, I would be worried to eat that.
Going with Jack’s Idea of mixing the correct animal with the beer in it what would rogue do with dead guy ale
Would Ruination IPA be stuffed in Evo?
Or would that be Arrogant Bastard? 😉
or my favorite beer Spotted Cow:
Fitting it taste like crap from a bottle but is AMAZING on tap. again with the tail lifting or it could come from the utters.
*sneaks off to the drawing board*
New Glarus Brewing also makes Fat Squirrel.
Are people that dumb?
The ending of the movie wraps it up all rather well, whatever you think of the actual movie.
Definately the Double Bastard ditto. LOL
Van: Short answer is yes. I remember that people thought the first Mission Impossible movie was confusing. I mean COME ON! 🙂
CP: Sweetest Perfection — Depeche Mode
As Tom Cruise movies go, I quite enjoyed “Vanilla Sky.”
I’m not sure this ring says I love you. 🙂
Tom Cruise and Confusing really don’t sell, but I’m sure that there are much more confusing movies out there starring Tom Cruise… Eyes Wide Shut comes to mind…
That’s another one I need to watch again.
You had your eyes closed?
They were popping out of my skull most of the time.
Is that the one with the freaky orgy/sacrifice?
If so, it’s the only scene I watched. If not, haven’t seen it!
Eyes Wide Shut was definitely a Kubrick film.
I was confused as to how Cameron Crowe could have directed such a filmed turd as Vanilla Sky. (no offense to those who liked it)
lollie lollie lollie get your adverbs here…..
Dark Star virgins unite!
Speaking of which, why hasn’t my copy arrived yet?
I actually like Vanilla Sky, and I take HUGE offense to those that disagree with my correct opinions!
You know, you’ll be telling me you haven’t seen Forbidden Planet next…
I finally saw that last year, I think. Good flick. Classic.
Why is Zach Galifanznxias&ne7snotfunnyxixzis in every single movie that comes out now?
Sorry, can you say that one again? I didn’t quite catch the pronunciation….
I noted the same thing, Jack.
Oh, by the way, “Rancor-whisperer”? Genius!
And why do we always have to see his butt?
C: Downloading my Buffy Season 8 motion picture episode 1. ZOMG.
Why Harlan Ellison is not better than you:
Van, that is awesome.
Wait, Jack said the “My Butt” came from Colorado. Are you saying it wasn’t you, EssBee?
Who else do we know in Colorado…..
Oh, that’s right – Jimmy!
I know — WHO COULD IT BE??
I’d be going alone and feel pretty out-of-place at Ground Zero, but still pretty tempted to go see My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult tomorrow night. Woulda jumped at the chance back in ’91…
FYI – I started listening to the 7th Sword of Truth book today. After the roller coaster that was Faith of the Fallen, this one, Pillars of Creation, is ramping up rather slowly.
Talked to JR Murdock awhile earlier. Cool guy.
What, me again? You guys are slacking. Sleep is over rated, people!
Well, if this doesn’t get your blood flowing, then you are already dead.
Dammit all, this really really really better not suck!
War Era food posters:
Third item down. Canadian “Gay Zombie Porn” movie denied entry to Australian film festival. Were they banned because they were gay zombies or because they’re Canadian gay zombies?
Wet and drizzly here. But on the upside, it’s Friday :cheerful:
Kurt, two things.
1) If you’re going to have gay zombies it would be in Canada since we allow gay marriages
2) Australia and Canada are both members of the commonwealth, if anybody would be banned it should have been you all rebels 😉
I told my hubby we needed a maid. He said the house wasn’t large enough to warrant one. I think he totally missed the point. The point was, I don’t want to clean the bathroom today.
I stand by my original request :pinch:
So if you know people that had never seen the original … should you recomend they watch it before going to see the new one?
I’m thinking it would be good (especially with the younger ones) to give them not just back story but also to give them some sfx perspective.
I don’t know anybody, who’s interested in seeing the second movie, who hasn’t seen the first.
Bunny, you should tell hubby you want a bigger house so you can warrant a maid
reaper, just the thought of moving makes my skin crawl.
Hubby actually mentioned moving earlier in the spring. I managed to talk him out of it. We redid the yard instead (believe it or not, there was a connection) :alien:
3 freebies at the app store for summer:
justa J0e: Re Tron Yes watch the original first. I always try to get my kids to watch the original of any remake. I also try to get the kids to play the original games before subsequent releases. It works better with the games because you don’t have to sit there for more than an hour to get the gist of a game. And with all the roms I have finding the game to play doesn’t take waiting for a disk to show up in the mail.
If it didn’t take me a few months to read a book I would love reading books before watching a movie made from a book.
Bunny, I hate moving also. I chrin every time my wife says “I hate this house”. Since I was 20 I have averaged 1.1 moves a year. In fact we moved out of 2 different places with in 4 months.
The book version of movies is pretty hit and miss for me. I find it frustrating because 9 times out of ten the movie is nowhere close to the book. I know, for the most part, movies can’t follow books exactly because of time/space constraints but I, at the very least, like to see movies follow the basic storyline of the book, which doesn’t happen very often.
Anther frustrating thing is on the rare occasion that the movie does follow the book, they will change the ending for reasons I cannot fathom.
More recently, a few movies have tried ie: the LoTR and HP movies, but then it took multiple movies for them to achieve the relative closeness they came.
The one exception I found was Shutter Island. I found that movie a very close adaptation of the book.
Another thing that bothers me about movie adaptations of books, sometimes they will follow the basic story line but change the setting entirely. An example of this is Taking Lives. The book was set in Europe (mainly Portugal), but the movie was set in Canada. I suppose that means Canada is considered and exotic local to you ‘Mericans.
(sorry, will stop ranting now)
but Canada is the maple leaf STATE. Going to Alabama isn’t exotic to me…
some perspective on the size of our sun:
I think that statement actually got to the heart of my argument, reaper :blink:
Our sun is little so must be spoiled rotten :ninja:
Darth Vader really is evil… and desprate
Well, I think I need to clean my bathroom now.
Back in a few :dizzy:
There, one clean bathroom. I refuse to clean the guest bathroom until we have guests coming 😎
I don’t believe that this Tron movie is a remake, but rather a continuation. At least that’s what the trailers will have you believe 🙂
Jack: thank you 🙂 you’re an awesome fellow yourself.
I’m on the fence re: watching the first Tron. I saw it again a few years ago, and I didn’t really think it held up to time. Plus, with the quality of the talkies being put out nowadays, I doubt the plot will be so deep that the initial movie will provide a necessary backdrop. But I could be wrong.
Plot? that’s such an old concept. All you need is more gunfire, witty comments, and car chases. Plot…pfffft
CP: I’m waiting — The Watchmen
JN: I agree. After 20+ years, I expect the new Tron to stand on its own.
Looks like Bruce Campbell will get a Sam Axe movie from USA. 🙂
Admirable intent but ouch!
WOW. The Daft Punk samples for the Tron soundtrack are AWESOME!
Not getting into book adaptions.
I can’t remember the last time I read a book adaptation of a movie. It has been a long time. I almost always read the book the movie was based on.
ditto, are you watching Top Chef?
Only watched the first couple. I need to catch up. There are several people that I really want eliminated already.
My headache says no.
I’ll just say this: cannot stand Angelo.
Although novelisations were my gateway into scifi.
My first foray into Scifi was Code of the Life Maker by James P. Hogan.
I’m a little sad he passed away recently.
Off to buy ink for hubby’s printer!
Kevin has been annoying me more, but I can’t say I like Angelo either. At least he seems to have some skills. I need to catch up.
He does have skills, but he’s creepy. He calls everything “sexy” or “beautiful” or something equally barfy. He is insipid.
No argument there.
He does have that creep factor nailed down, doesn’t he? 🙂
“Oh, this salmon is SO SEXY.” *smarm, gag, smarm*
CP: Caterpillar Whine — Watermelon Slim
The Black Hole novelisation by Alan Dean Foster was the first fiction book I ever bought.
Well, after checking out the sound clips, we can at least be sure that the score for Tron Legacy is going to be awesome.
I can’t remember if I ever read The Black Hole novelization. But, I have read several others of his. He always managed to breathe extra life into the stories – even with movies that were already good to start with.
Watched Tron last week with the young ‘uns. The story is actually really innovative, and you can see how much it influenced a lot of the cyberpunk that followed. The dated FX are forgivable, because it’s supposed to be taking place in a lo-rez world.
That said, there are plenty of hokey moments, and there are times when the action isn’t clear enough and you lose track of who’s what.
I know that when I put this steak in my mouth, the Matrix is telling my brain that it is juicy and delicious…
I know I’m going to get razzed for this but… Has anyone done a Tron/Matrix mash-up?
Ah yes Ed, ADF also did the novelisation of Dark Star, worth checking out if you can find it ..will enhance your palooza experience.
made me laugh:
again with the Wisconsin stupidness:
And again the local paper won’t cover it. I wish sometimes we had a media in this state. But I guess if I heard to much crap like this going on here I might want to leave again.
CL: at the flicks, waiting for ‘The Concert’ to start.

I want ‘bit’ to follow me around and tell me yes or no to all my questions 🙂 Bit taught me the joys of binary.
I’ll be meeting Deb and CJ for lunch (or early dinner) in a couple hours. Taking them to Old Town Cafe (in Old Town). It’ll be a hoot 🙂
Sadly Amy can’t make it tonight. Darn it. Once again I miss Amy.
Well, I never would have thought that anyone would be so clever as to put the Old Town Cafe in such an apt locale…
it does boggle the mind.
Does it bug you when people standing in line near you at sitting near you in public like to hold LOUD phone conversations?
There’s not an app for that … yet, however there is this –
justa J0e, LOUD phone conversations piss me off. I was at an airport once and some guy was yelling in to his phone and someone came by and said to him very loudly “we don’t care about your conversation” and then a few others started chiming in but the guy got the point and hung up but the people didn’t let up for a few minutes. it was kind of funny.
YEAH……………… YEAH, HAHA!………….. UH HUH………. NO, NO IT’S………… NO, THAT’LL BE FINE…………………. HE’S JUST GOTTA UNDERSTAND WHERE WE’RE………… THAT’S RIGHT…………… SERIOUSLY, DUDE!……… HA HA HA, WITH A DUCK?……………….RIGHT, THAT’S WHAT I TOLD HIM…………… ARE YOU KIDDING?………. HA HA HA …………… NO, I CAN CONTINUE TALKING, I’VE GOT ANOTHER HALF-HOUR OR SO…………….
WELL, I’M IN THE LADIES ROOM, BUT IT’S OKAY . . . YEAH . . . *flush*
jack, the “with a duck” in a nice touch
So, the Comic-Con protesters were satirically out-protested by Sci-Fi fans, as expected:
Well tonight’s film show was enlivened by a not so young couple making out out in ‘the seats one away from me on ‘the row I was sitting.
In the Conservatory
With a duck
There’s that duck again.
That was just me being CLUEless.
justa, I take your meaning, sir.
well played, well played.l
Van, was the couple subtitled?
Hard to spell all those slurping noises.
Lets rock this shit!
That shit’s on a roll!
Can Ophelia boobies?
Lunch (or was it dinner) was lots o fun with Deb and CJ!
Doubtful … but I’m willing to let you go ahead and give it that college try!
Fun night over at my neighbor’s house tonight.
His parents, brothers and sisters and their kids all visiting him.
So tonight he hung a huge sheet out by his pool – lugged all his A/V equipment out there … and projected “Princess bride”.
Just a different sort of fun to sit outside and watch a good movie.
Joe, that story sounds impossible. It’s so far-fetched it’s difficult to even grasp the possibility. One might even say it’s. . . .
umm, what’s the word I’m looking for. . . . ?
Happy Birthday Amiga:
Cool in an 8bit way:
JOe, I’m headed to mom & dad’s today and will finally get you that recipe (though it might be too late).
Went to see a couple of mini gigs today, one of them was Dayna Kurtz..thought she was wonderful:
For you MSTK3000 lovers, Amazon has a deal for you today:
I decided to play catch-up this morning. It has been an interesting couple of weeks. I’m working for the city over the summer, and taking an online class, and I decided to read straight through the Incarnations of Immortality fantasy series by Piers Anthony. I’m now almost finished with Book 7 of 8, and haven’t gotten my hands on 8 yet, but seriously, I have been SO addicted to those things.
Also, I have been spending much of my time at work immersed in the tiny but awesome sample of Canadian
music that is The Arrogant Worms. They made a somewhat repetitive job lots of fun. :happy:
justa J0e said:
So if you know people that had never seen the original … should you recommend they watch it before going to see the new one?
I’m thinking it would be good (especially with the younger ones) to give them not just back story but also to give them some sfx perspective.
I agree with you 100%. Everyone should see the original first, for both of those reasons.
I loved the Incarnations of Immortality series, but the last few books that tried to tie things together got a bit “soap opera” for my taste. I cut my Fantasy teeth on The Lord of the rings, but Piers Anthony’s Xanth series took a close second when I was young. I also enjoyed the Omnivore, Orn and Ox series. It still amazes me that Anthony can write extremely well in both hard core sci-fi and fantasy.
Piers Anthony was some of the earliest Sci-Fi/Fantasy stuff that I ever read. I think “Incarnations of Immortality” was some of the first non-childrens stuff that I remember reading. Followed those with Bio of a Space Tyrant and the earlier Xanth books. The Xanth stuff eventually became to punny to handle anymore.
That said, I don’t know that I’ve even picked up one of his books in over 20 years.
LOL – “Xanth stuff eventually became to punny to handle anymore”
That was exactly it’s demise for me as well.
I LOVED that series and couldn’t wait to read the next … up to a point. Then the puns just got to distracting/annoying
ASH for the Princess Bride soundbite win.
It was made of awesome meeting J.R. Murdock this weekend! I have many stories to tell… should I call them in??
Jack, we saw you! No.. wait, it was that guy with the big round head that sells hamburgers… Debbie said, “Look, it’s Jack!” But it wasn’t you. My bad.
Sorry we missed out on seeing Amy Bowen. Maybe later next year.
I haven’t heard myself singing my “anthem” were there any responses to that?
Uhm… that’s all I got for now. I’ll check in, catch up when I get home.
Miss ya all and I’m using computer internet at the hostel.
yes, it’s a hostile hostel kind of world
“that guy with the big round head that sells hamburgers”
I need to remember that for an AKA name.
I hope Comic-Con has been fun for all! We need lots of pictures and stories.
Can you spot the fake laugh:
The writers of the latest Haven episode have a character utter an historical fallacy so wrong it’s not even funny.
History of the Amiga computer:
Damn. Now Dr. Who is over for the year. 🙁
I really enjoyed this season.
Crazy Nazi schemes not quite forgotten:
Hey Deadpan. Good morning.
We don’t want to get out of bed today.
Hugh sez: We will eventually
but not for a while 🙂
Hugh sez: we’re naked
Hugh sez: don’t shush me, you typed it
Re Doctor Who: It took us a while to warm up to this new doctor honestly. Didn’t hate him but just wasn’t feeling it for a few episodes honestly.
Hugh sez: We haven’t watched the last episode yet but are really liking this story so far.
Yeah that pandoras box thing was really cool how it developed
Hugh sez: We have warmed up to the doctor but are not liking his assistant at all
No, omg. No. She is NOT good. Does anyone else feel this? I would prefer Rory as his assistant over Amy Pond. I don’t like her. She isn’t believable and she is half the woman that either Rose Tyler or Martha Jones were.
Hugh sez: Martha Jones….mmmmmmm
lol. Hugh has a Martha Jones crush 🙂
Hugh sez: Amy Pond is a very weak character. Martha and Rose were these incredibly strong vibrant characters. Amy is just kinda blah.
that star wars yoga was so so so SO cute 🙂
Hugh sez: We’re going to start doing those at our bikram yoga sessions
🙂 you are sorta doing the reclined jabba right now. lol 🙂
I love the difference between tie fighter and tie fighter advanced
ahh that was funny. What an awesome idea
Hugh sez: combines 2 of our favorite things
we do love our star wars and our yoga.
Re: reviving nazi space bomber plan
I guess the thing the nazis did really well was figuring out how to destroy shit and kill people.
Hugh sez: If Hitler had let the real war generals command shit and stopped micro-managing them they would of accomplished much more destruction then they had.
Yeah it was kinda like they had these great ideas about war and the things they wanted to accomplish and it took them so far but then Hitler wouldn’t let the people who knew what they were doing keep it moving forward. Luckily for the rest of the world he made poor decisions and didn’t succeed.
J0e: Princess Bride outdoors sounds like a lot of fun. :happy:
Cj: Yes, you should call in your stories! :biggrin:
I’m going to have to disagree, TSH. Amy Pond is turning out to be more that just nice eye candy.
Home Sweet Home
or in this case,
Home Heat Home…
Either way… glad to be here.
Alright, just caught the season finale of Dr. Who – definitely stand by my assessment of Amy Pond.
Just caught the Van Gogh episode.
Once again, I’d describe the new season as “okay”. Have the rest of the season waiting on the TiVo … but it is just not as gripping as the previous 2 seasons were.
I’m okay with Ms. Pond and the new Doctor … it’s the stories and writing that are loosing me.
Took a long weekend from work with the family out of state down in CO and have watched a bunch of movies with Trav & Kristal (old roomie and his GF) went out on a pontoon boat on Lake Minnetonka, and had some drinks during the period.
Trying to keep the rest of the week unburdened with plans, other than work and tomorrow’s improv audition for Sage Tyrtle.
Morning Pan, will try and see Toy Story 3 today, hopefully I won’t stick out like a sore thumb at the 10am showing.
Watching the trailers, think I’ll give tinkerbell a miss when it’s released.
I loved the Van Gogh epsiode actually. Was my favorite of the season.
We watched the finale too.. I don’t know, Ed. Amy spends most of every episode looking dumbfounded and confused.
Rose gave the doctor his humanity back
Martha was like River Song and a huge asset
Donna questioned him and kept him on his toes
Amy.. I don’t know. I am willing to see how she develops now that those questions were answered for her and all. She might develop more for me in the 2nd season but I am not seeing her as a true assistant yet.
I think i worked out what I am trying to say about Amy
up to now I feel she had been with the doctor only because he knew somehow she was part of an issue he needed to solve.
Now that it is over, I do think she could possibly develop into more of a real assistant but up to now she hasn’t been- she has been the problem he hasn’t been able to solve.
I do want to see where it goes next season
Well ok, even my cynical black heart felt something when the story reached THAT point in TS3.
What was even better, less than 20 people in the cinema, and very few kids..yah!
Oh and the 3D was pretty much disposable.
I have a sneaky feeling that the parsecs finalists will be announced today…
I guess you can add hubby and I to the long list of people who give Inception a thumbs up.
CJ: Glad you and Deb had a great time at #sdcc. 🙂 Also glad you made it home safely from the insanity.
wndr: I hope so, I was nominated 🙂
I’m trying to take an interest in work but, so far, I’m failing.
CJ: It just occurred to me, you got your camera out and we neglected to take photographic evidence of our meeting. This could go down as a hoax! [gasp]
Took my grandmother shopping on the weekend. Usually she tires out after a couple of hours but she obviously was feeling spry this weekend. I don’t care how much you like to torture people, no one should be forced to spend four hours wandering around Walmart.
It’s cruel and unusual punishment.
I came home, curled up in a ball and slept for an hour after that.
I believe it JR. Millions of others wouldn’t, but I do…
… Of course, it’s been commented on my gullibility in the past…
CW Mad Men S4E1
Hubby just offered to do my grocery shopping for me.
He’s very sweet.
I refused, but I still thought it was sweet.
Saw the season finale of Dr. Who on the weekend. I was satisfied with it. It’s true, of the new Doctors, this one doesn’t grab me as much as the other two however, in the overall scheme of Doctor Who, he did OK and I look forward to the next season.
JR: You are correct. I think I said that same thing about the photos 50 times after I kicked myself in the shins (which was quite difficult to do mind you!) So, the way I see it, now we just ABSOLUTELY have to do it again! 🙂
MM + S&M=OMG
??? Naughty, candy coated chocolates???
I’m surprised TEB’s teeth haven’t fallen out by now…
CP: Curtains — Dead When I Found Her
I’m liking this song.
TSH: I see what you mean about Amy, but I like her. And I think she’s more than just dumbfounded in most episodes. Of course, red heads are my kryptonite. 🙂
Loved the finale.
TEB: I’m planning on seeing Inception this week.
CJ: You are so right 🙂
JR – You have mail.
wndrwolf: ‘Sblood, art thou avoiding me?
No I am not – Did I miss something JN?
Cyndi Lauper was wonderful. You couldn’t have ordered better weather, no bugs to speak of.
She’s promoting her new Blues album. She’s quite good at it. Still has an astounding voice.
The second half was Blues-ified versions of some of her classics.
She bantered very well with the crowd, including wading amongst them. She owned the whole lot of ’em.
wndrwolf: I believe you were Calling for Coffee in Connecticut. I don’t see your e-mail addy on your updated site.
Good :pan: it is morning, yes?
Amy: I only remember 7 Incarnations of Immortality… am I missing one?
On a Pale Horse,
Bearing an Hourglass
With Tangled Skein
Wielding a Red Sword
Being a Green Mother
For Love of Evil
What am I missing?
ahhh – yes just put @gmail.com at the end of my name JN.
k, will do.
Saw Predators over the weekend. meh.
Basically a retelling of the first movie, with a lot of hack elements. Lots of missed opprotunities to make it compelling.
Lejon: Under a Velvet Cloak.
I couldn’t get past the Weilding a Red Sword. His series, imo, just aren’t very good after book 3 or 4.
No ‘effing way!
How to get Android running on your netbook:
Vanamonde: That video was amazing. Thanks!
Nice Tali cosplay.
I concur ditto.
What to expect from S3 of Fringe:
So I guess I should watch some Mad Men S1, huh?
Can’t wait for Fringe!
ditto, loved your “stupidity scales” link on FB. That is so my life.
wndr: I’m so there! Just send me date and time 🙂
AHHH!! Another good series to watch I’ll never get cough up.
I still haven’t seen Star Trek Voyager or all of Star Trek NG
and for movies I just finely saw the first 3 Die Hard’s
OK, more caught up.
I’ve heard of these Parsec things. . . .
Congrats JR (and WNDR?) on your nomination!
Cj, I do hope you can share some stories from SDCC.
And not Serendipitous Diabolical Color-Coding.
reaper, I coulda told you to stop after the first Die Hard.
None of the sequels sucked, but all were forgettable.
Jack, I liked them but they where kind of the same movie, so ya forgettable
Jackamo – we wait for the finalist announcements.
CW: latest True Blood
I wish sookie was more kick ass..really I do..
let the swooning begin, panites
ditto- tis cool. I respect everyones opinion. I hope Amy grows on mw
jack- Mad Men tis awesome. totally awesome. I loves me some Joan and I can’t help but love Don Draper even though I want to smack him.
wnderwolf called you Jackamo 🙂 awwwww
re: JRMurdock: re: date and time, am to understand this is re: Call to Connecticut Coffee re:?
Coffee…. yes… have some…
CP: Transylvanian Concubine — Rasputina
WTH? Lingerie Football Training Camp?
Mmmm… nice tight end.
I bet the announcer can’t say “she’s in the slot” with a straight face.
Wasn’t Greg Dulli the lead singer for Creed?
OK, OK – I can’t leave that joke sitting there.
Disclaimer: Greg Dulli was not the singer for Creed. nor was he in Poison, Color Me Badd, Nickelback, Britny Fox, or any other horrible band. He *is or was* in the Afghan Whigs, The Twilight Singers, and the Gutter Twins.
I was just baiting a Smarty Hottie. Carry on with the Wide Receiver jokes.
Jack, maybe he’s his doppelganger. I think they sound so much alike. 🙂
Great. Now *I’m* going to be in trouble since Jack printed his retraction. 😉
Can I come out of my bunker yet? Has ASH smote Jack yet?
Ah I see he has fessed up.
We’re safe for the moment.
Lost fans should save up now. The Ultimate Collection looks pretty cool.
Jack … is best to start with th S1 of the Mad Men.
It Is actually worth the effort.
you all take those comments back right now!!! grrrrrrrrr
I notice Greg isn’t touring in any of your cities, obviously you are all unworthy. I on the other hand have both my cities represented because Greg loves me almost as much as I love him.
egads. Thank God Hugh isn’t here 😉
JN: it’s regarding the parsec awards 🙂
Re: Lingerie football traning camp
wowza!!! I just emailed that to Hugh to make sure he sees that
why can’t the men play in just their boxers???
I think we need more nude male sports.
Ah, I C
Ah, you should have watched the “Tour de France.” More dudes mooning the camera than I cared to see, and no boobs. 🙁
The Smarty Hotties want to bring back the old ways of the Olympics, it would seem . . .
TSH: We just need more nude in general I think.
Well that depends if you’ve got it JR, I feel I do the world a service by keeping several layers of clothing on at all times outdoors.
Is Andrea suggesting that sporting events need:
Ah, the classics.
CW: Sherlock E1
BBC’s new sherlock series set in modern day.
OMG, so wrong:
Alright, that Tali costume was just pure awesomeness.
Followed by OMG, so funny:
Anybody got any tipes on opening an SD card case without smashing the case?
My 16gig SD card case’s is falling to bits even though the flash memory is fine, wondering if it’s feasible to transfer the flash memory into an old SD case.
Avoid smiling. I dare you:
Does anyone care about the WPA2 vuln and not already know about it?
Van: I tried to find advice online, but couldn’t find much other than how to fix the lock. If the case isn’t too badly damaged (only cracked), you could try tape to hold it together. Since they are so small and thin, I think your best bet is to transfer the data onto a new card.
Ed: Joyous 🙂
I know I have stories to tell still… but in the interim, please enjoy these photos…
Lejon: ditto is correct. Under a Velvet Cloak was published in 2007. I’m told it’s mostly a prequel to the main series.
ditto: I really liked Being a Green Mother (Book 5), but I think my enjoyment of it was due in large part to its focus on music, something I love very much.
Johnny Null said:
Does anyone care about the WPA2 vuln and not already know about it?
Hey, Jack – check out today’s woot!
(if you view the woot after 10pm on July 27th Arizona time it will no longer be humorous)
I missed the woot. 🙁
Unless the w00t item you wanted me to see is a bunch of shamwows.
First trailer for Zack Snyder’s next movie:
Just in case you aren’t as cynical as JN:
Thx ditto, time to break out the electrician tape.
RobotDX, nice little shooter on a Robotron vibe:
Does this stand a chance of being watchable after what, 25 years?
Hopefully they will include a game where you get to shoot the annoying goat like creature.
Sucker Punch looks AWESOME. I’m now really looking forward to it.
OMG, The Real L Word is SO SO SO SO SO bad. I know hundreds of lesbians and none of them act like these people!
Had a thunderstorm last night, now everything is all green and smells nice.
Ed, what does is say about me when I admit I own the D&D cartoon series on DVD?
Hubby never saw it when he was younger so I picked it up and made him watch it :cheerful:
Well, we gave in yesterday and picked up Rock Band 2. You’re right EssBee, very addictive.
EssBee – If it helps … I know hundreds of people and almost none of them are like the douchebags they had on the original “The Real World”.
There is very little “real” in those “real” shows.
Got notice that Darkstar is shipping. With any luck it will show up later this week.
Starts to hum ‘Benson Arizona’,,,
JOe, you are so right. That’s what it is.
I thought for sure this would be a Wisconsin story
cool new idea
way back in the 80’s when I got one:
Jack, JN: Yeah, I knew about the vulnerability. The key point though is that it requires the hacker to already be on the network. This isn’t a problem in a Starbucks.
Vanamonde: Thanks for beating me to the link. I honestly wasn’t being cynical, I’m just used to being beaten by the well-informed Paninites.
ditto: If the network is always on, you’re saying?
I so want a wacom tablet.
JN: D’oh. What I meant to write was this *is* a problem in a Starbucks. The main issue is that the hacker can insert man-in-the-middle attacks, but they have to be on the network already. At least, that is my understanding.
Attention Mad Men lovers: Fresh Air focused on the show, interviewing the showrunner and talking about the new season (spoilery) yesterday. It was fun.
Have any of you guys purchased TV episodes from iTunes? If so, do you know how to just download one or another version (HD versus regular)? I download the regular version, but every time I download podcasts, etc, it tries to download the HD versions.
JN: This is very troublesome. WPA Cracker cloud service.
EssBee: Sorry. Don’t know the answer to that one.
I use 63 random ASCII characters for my wifi router, so probably easier for an oh so bored hacker to break in when I’m at work and reset the router…
No idea Essbee, Only stuff I buy from iTunes are apps for the phone.
CH: being poisoned by some silly woman who appears to have dumped a whole bottle of perfume on herself.
CP: I’m Him — Wise Intelligent
EssBee, I have only gotten free stuff in regards to TV and if I deleted the one I didn’t want from the TV Shows area under library it stopped downloading but that was version 8 something so that might have changed. I should note when I looked under TV it should a download button next to the one I had not downloaded yet.
I’ll try that reaper, thanks! I imagine the purchased video works the same way the free does.
I bought a season pass to the Buffy live action comic.
Art imitates life; reality tv imitates itself.
For the record “My Butt” was from elsewhere in this great state…
My lovely lady rumps
Are you trying to pin the butt on me?
If the butt fits…
I think we all know who wants the palooza to focus on My Butt.
Wait . . . not my butt . . .
Do we? DOOOOO WEEEEE?
I think WEEEEE DOOOO.
Well I dont get it.
Hey we’re not the only Deadpanites in the Front Range you know
I know its hard to believe.
Unless I was drunk and dont remember…. but Im pretty sure not.
Is there a shot for this?
Jack: The trailer for Sucker Punch looks great. It also looks like a anime+game combination.
I know plenty of people that wish they could shift their weight around in this way.
Very wrong. Very funny.
If it was from the Colorado mountain range, then maybe they meant to type “My Butte”?
That’s a butte, Jack.
Now I’ll go out and a butte. 🙂
Get one, ditto.
She’s one in a million girls.
Why would I lie?
I think this is Doz/Ibgerd, of the old-tyme Wingin’ It! crowd:
CP: Five Year Plan [Vitaminsforyou 6th Year Remix] — You Say Party! We Say Die!
They have Sucker Punch figures already.
Hay pan, So this weekend another branch broke on a very large tree so I finely bought a chainsaw. Here are a few things I have discovered:
Always buy at least one more chain
Buy a gallon of chin oil not the little container
Just buy the sharpening file
use good tools the first time you adjust/tighten things other wise you will brake tool that came with it
Expect to spend %50 more on accessories and consumables right away
I’m liking the Goon trailer. What little I read of the comic was always funny. And Paul Giamatti looks great!
I didn’t plan to buy a chainsaw I was just going to borrow my cousins again but the conversation when something like this:
My Wife: How long will it take him to get out here to help you…
My Wife: This will never get clean up
Me: If I had a chainsaw it would be cleaned up already I like working outside
My Wife: Well then lets go get one.
Me: ummm ok
CP: Ænema — Tool
yes please stop:
reaper: totally agree. I never buy bottled water unless there is absolutely no other alternative.
ditto: I will buy a few every year or so just to have the convent container for my tap watter. Some times it is just to hard to clean the marks from hard water out of a container and I’m to lazy to do it
Mmm… I could go for a Lipton’s Cuppa Water ® right now.
Lejon, Can you imagine if water was marketed that way? I don’t think the bottled water industry would have gone anywhere.
holy funny hair Batman
I wonder how VH1’s nostalgia shows will view Lady Gaga in 2020?
Anyway, this is hilarious:
Alright, got caught up before I head out.
Traveling for a couple of days of waterpark fun and general getting away for a bit.
Try not to completely burn the bar down (Lo Pan!) while I’m away.
Don’t let the shorts ride up too much, Ed! Have fun.
I think I’ll pass on the $69 hot dog.
I’m only 710 nipples behind. If I rush, I may catch up this week.
That’s quite a lot of back nipplage to wade through.
I have no funny links, no witty or pithy comments, just a goodnight mush.
Well this quote stood out for in a Times Magazine article on Steve Jobs and Jesus:
‘When their brains are examined under an MRI scanner, Apple devotees are indistinguishable from those committed to Jesus’
Err Steve Jobs and Apple..groan
If you don’t listen to The Dragon Page then you may not know that there is a new online scifi mag:
For iPhone/iPod Touch users I would recommend installing Stanza and reading the emag that way as the PDF is hard to read in iBooks on the small screen.
You don’t want to mess with this guy:
Good early morning, DP. Work.
Ever been so tire and sore you couldn’t sleep? I have now. 3 days of cutting wood for 3 or more hours each day is a lot of hard work.
Since I couldn’t sleep I went to the YMCA for a swim and some time in the hot tub than the steam room. Swimming Steam rooms are very relaxing.
Ive never spent much time in school, but Ive taught ladies plenty.
It’s true I hire my body out for pay, hey hey
I’ve never been with anything less than a nine so fine
“apple devotees are indistinguishable from those committed to Jesus’”
Oddly enough … that holds true for the MRI of atheists as well.
I’m not really sure what TIME is driving at with that particular line.
Except perhaps to try and get people to talk about them for making such an odd comparison.
I guess it’s hard to be a relevant “dead tree” media in this “electron media” world.
I feel your pain reaps. Literally and figuratively. My “wood” was 3 tons of river rock. Ugh.
Lo Pan, to be afraid?
Ive been on fire for Cheryl Tiegs
reaps, to be what to be afraid?
I need to remember to refresh before I comment. My “to be afraid” was in reference to Lo Pans “Ive never spent much time in school, but Ive taught ladies plenty.”
But when I end up in the hay it’s only hay (hey, hey)
Lo Pan, I hate moving rock also the sound of rock scraping agents itself and the shovel is horrible.
I think the most difficult part of my wood cutting other than it being oak was that it fell on a crappy lean to shed I couldn’t stand on any more and that the log would hit the neighbors garage if I cut it wrong.
ditto: Yes, that’s my understanding of the vuln as well. That cloud service is indeed worrying. I’m sure that there’s been much of this going on already, but to put this thing out to the general public like that. Less than good.
justa J0e: please cite your source re: atheist MRIs.
Theres nothing better than a weekend of moving, cleaning, and river rock shoveling, reaps. LOVE IT!
I might fall from a tall building, I might roll a brand new car
reaper said “wood”, “log”, and “scraping agents”.
reaper <===== providing silly humor since 1979
Lo Pan<===== providing teen pregnancies since…er…wait nevermind
well since 9-2009 here.
I’m coming up to my Panniversary
It’s a death defying life I lead
My wood is my hammer
Id take my chances….
And by hammer I mean wood.
Johnny Null – YES! Thank you. My point exactly!
One thing I forgot about working out in the morning I don’t like is that it’s only 9:30 and I’m hungry. glad I have snacks here.
Oh…EssBee….oh god…(yes, thats what she said)
hmm pretzels but no mustard. I’ll have to remedy this problem next time I get to the store.
And by “pretzel” you mean hammer. And by “mustard” you mean…
Saw part of this movie last night and couldn’t determine if it was intended for kids or adults.
Jack: You ‘The Tubes’ reference didn’t go unnoticed 🙂
Lo Pan wood… I think maybe rocks
If “wood” covers “rock” … does that mean scissors defeats “wood” ?
Today Advil is my friend I keep it in my 1up tin like this one: http://pics.boards.weddingbee.com/125519.favors.jpg

Joe; don’t forget Lizard, Spock
Craft time Print Cut Fold:
I don’t know why this makes me laugh.
Fall Guy movie . . .
My dad LOVED FG, but only because it was the mate of The Bionic Woman in his mind. Lindsay Wagner is *swoooooooony* for my daddy.
My dad might not love a remake. I might.
To the person who asked for UHF —
I actually got to visit some of the shooting locations from UHF in Tulsa, OK while driving from Phoenix to Philly.
I’ve been to Kuni’s Karate School, Big Edna’s Burger’s, and Raul’s Apartment (where he taught poodles how to fly!)
Gotta say…..it was pretty damn awesome.
Everything sounds dirty today
If its done like the A-Team remake Im all in. If its done like the Duke of Hazard…no.
J0e! Castration joke FW!
LOL, I see “scissors” and think “lesbians”
CP: The State of Massachusetts — Dropkick Murphys
Whats a lesbian?
EssBee, Thanks now I have Mrs. Garrison saying “Oh yeah were scissoring” stuck in my head and worse yet “Oh yeah scissor me timbers!!!”
LOL. Welcome to my mind, reaper.
Thar be scissors, Captain!
Yeah, join the party reaper! 🙂
A woman in comfortable shoes?
more craft actives:
wish I would have though of this when I was young
A lady who eschews the company of men?
EssBee, So is it Mrs Garrison stuck in your head or…
reaper: I bet The Doctor wished he had seen that one. It would have made the finale a little easier on him. 🙂
CP: The Crablouse — Lords of Acid
(music from the Sucker Punch trailer)
Just in case you weren’t already convinced that the game tie-in movie Battleship would suck….
I could never spell scissors properly. Too many esses.
The Guild’s awesome new music video… Bollywood style!
Okay, I’ll grant that great breasts might distract me for the length of yet another craptastic pop song … but no way it’s going to make me sit through a 90 minute movie.
Huh? What’s that … “Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life” ?
Oh … well, fine then. I rescind my previous comment.
… oh, and I was going to make some lame comment about chewing the company of women but I promised myself I wouldn’t.
rock paper scissors lizzard Spock
Aren’t lesbians just actors?
just made a an inception spoiler-full google wave. Lemmie know if you want on.
I’ll hold Essbee’s coat in the inevitable duel.
I’m in on the Inception talk, JfS, although Google Wave frustrates the hell out of me.
Hey, Krazy Joe’s comment is freed! That’s a pretty cool little UHF tour, KJ. And what else are you gonna do in Tulsa? (no offense WNDR)
Have fun storming the castle.
It was really a lame “thespians” joke, Van. I’ll help you hold EssBee’s coat if there’s a duel.
reaper, nice board game find! Does it come with your own Peter Falk?
And congrats one 1 year here! You’ve added a hella lot to this community in a short time.
OK, back to work for me.
You must work foster, to avoid the poster disouster, you forgot the lobster.
JfS: If all goes according to plan, I’ll want on later this afternoon.
I know how to spell banana, I just don’t know when to stop.
That’s kind of like Georgeorgeorgeorgeorgeorgeorgeorge………
Board game is swell but this may be better (Inconceivable?)
I detest being so far behind on comments.
PS. I’ll be home tonight – can stay up late…
ahem. just sayin’
Oh yeah and I want to see Inception! I really really do!
No recording tonight, Cj. Maybe next week? Or the week after that?
Speaking of Toy Story 3 and Inception. . . It helps to have seen both movies, but it’s probably not necessary. Spoiler-free, brilliantly done:
Peter “Bones” Gabriel – Spock the Monkey
Thanks Jack This place makes work go by so much faster when I’m not that busy
Spork the Monkey
pretty good list:
I think I have had the kids watch all of these other than number 8
How the hell is Star Wars not there?
Also E.T has and always will, suck giant balls. I hate me some E.T.
Terry Bisson’s oddball ‘Billly’ stories available for free at:

CP: A Saucerful of Secrets — Pink Floyd
Got my free bumper from Apple, appear to fix the antenna problem, yah!
Lo Pan, I think they light have skipped some movies there where obvious.
I like E.T.
E.T. never really did it for me, Elliot.
It was a strangely-compiled, incomplete list.
I’ll also vote in favor of E.T.
Ill re-do the list…
…but you will blow me first.
when reading most of the movies my first thought was “oh yeah” and second was “that is something the kids should (and did) see”
to a definitive list it might take a while
E.T. = Ever Terrifying
After all these years I still have no desire to eat Rocky Mountain Oysters.
E.T. = Essplosive Terrain
E.T. = Ethereal Terrapins
E.T. = Extraneous Telegraphing
E.T. = Eggplant Tofu.
E.T. = Existential Turtle
E.T. = Extracurricular Tracheotomy
E.T. = Enraged Toast
E.T. = Extrasensory Testes
E.T. = Eggo Transformer!
Et Tu E.T.?
P.S. Received Dark Star DVD in the mail yesterday.
Euclidean Trombone: A Steven Spielberg film.
E.T. = Espherical Tomi
Inception was awesome.
Now I need some time to mull it over.
I have decided that I kinda have the hots for Leonardo D.
Haven’t seen the film yet – we’re hoping for Saturday. I’m not ignoring you, Jeremy, but not looking for spoilers sake!
EssBee I won’t go that far but with logic I can’t hate him even if he did do Titanic. Leo can act… well
11 mil ouch
Last night, I accepted an invitation to perform three songs at a songwriter showcase in San Luis Obispo next Tuesday night. All three are original songs with lyrics by my mom and music by me and some other co-writers. I’ve never sung original songs for a live audience before, so I’m excited and scared. I’m going to take my Snowball with me, but we will be in a restaurant and bar, so no promises that I’ll get a listenable recording, or any recording at all.
Amy: Good luck and have fun.
Good luck, Amy!
I’m mostly caught up and going to try to stay that way… that being said…
1. Dark Star Arrived via Netflix today. When we will watch it, I haven’t a clue. Soonsies I hope.
2. Men are a pain in the ass.
3. Jack, next week is fine, better actually than this week since starting next week I don’t have to be to work til 8am.
4. My new job is so awesome.
5. I mentioned that I want to see Inception, it has nothing to do with Leo. He does nothing for me and men are a pain in the ass anyway.
6. I would love to see a movie featuring Jack’s butt. Is that so wrong really?

Wow Amy, that’s exciting! Congratulation and good luck! I hope you do get a quality recording for yourselves, even if it’s not something you want to share with the world. If you want it heard here, however, then I’d love to play it.
Cj, was Winona Ryder here?
