Situation Normal All Fucked Up
From last thread…. NO!!!!!! Chocolate the kick ass Thai JeeJa Yanin film
I know exactly what I want and who I wanna be
You never want to start the week with a snafu.
So ok from the previous thread…. I will check out that Chocolate.
Though it would be hard to top the Canadian chocolate from Charles Callebaut. (Thank you, Canadians)
OK, I was wrong the first time.
I first thought Lo was going soft on use till I checked out the spelling..that final e is important on the testosterone scale…
Well Pan, a meeting at the office to be at, and then off to see the Scott Pilgrim movie.
Rise and Shine, Deadpan!
I’ll investigate this . . . Chocolate . . .
Oh, and good morning.
Added. I did like Ong Bak and The Protector.
It’s all dark.
What? Did no one else enjoy Blood and Chocolate?
Well, it was a better movie than the book, at the least.
We got to hear from Mr. TEB. Cool.
I enjoy the days hubby has a meeting. We get to sleep in.
Who’s this Charles Callebeaut?
Silly Jack, Charles is for kids… Bernard is for chocolate.
Mr. TEB is indeed cool. He’s also hot. :blush:
Episode finally downloaded. Now to listen
Hubby works with middle school kids. Internet security is a big issue in school. One of the things they try to drill into them is not to use their real name on the internet. Whenever hubby goes against his teachings I tend to bug him.
Enjoyed the episode more than the flick! How cute are the bunnies?
I haven’t got my sixty lines 🙁
There was one person who didn’t give their name *tsk, tsk, tsk*. Jack will have to add them to my show notes.
Hubby left for his meeting. I was picking on him because he had a name tag on.
He was upset because it said his actual name. I guess some of the teachers call him D-Dawg. I’m not sure why. It’s very strange.
In response to an off the cuff comment by Jack. August is typically a slower comment month. We are actually on track to exceed the comment count from August last year. We only need 200 comments this week to match.
In fact, we have surpassed the first three weeks of August last year. (1,302 comments last year, currently 1,876 for the first three weeks this year) It was the last week last year that made up for it (over 700 comments).
CD: at the cinema waiting for Scott Pilgrim to start.
There’s a guy who looks like Doolittle, unfortunately he smells like how I imagine somebody would smell like on a malfunctioning ship for 20 years…
Poor Van. Gives smell-o-vision a whole new meaning.
I shall be breathing through my mouth only for the rest of the performance.
But it was nice to hear Mr TEB on the DP.
It’s easier to pin him down for such stuff during summer holidays.
Just don’t breath too heavily through your mouth, Van. Stinky guy will think you like him 😉
“It’s easier to pin him down for such stuff during summer holidays.”
Way to go Mr. TEB!
Also, great episode. Great opening Dan & CJ, Mr. TEB and the rest of the commentors. And any mashup featuring Nevermore is a good mash up. 🙂
Sorry Rhett, I had to sneak off to the bank.
Now I’ll join you in making cricket noises.
Scott Pilgrim was AWESOME!
That is all.
I’m going to watch a movie after lunch. Not sure what I’m watching but maybe I’ll PbP it to help bump up the comment count.
Boo, I wont have a chance to see it until it hits video :cwy:
No worries TEB, it just seemed quiet in here for being morning (for us here in the New World). I won’t be seeing Scott Pilgrim until it hits Netflix.
Agreed Rhett. Certainly not for lack of want… but for lack of theaters playing it here anymore. Sucks. Came and went like a 2cent whore.
CP: Just Came Back — Colin James
Must get my laundry from the dryer. Then lunch. Then movie time.
I’ll probably also have to wait for DVD to see Scott Pilgrim.
There will only ever be one Smarty Hotties duo, but it was still fantastic to hear the Smarty Bunnies together in this episode.
Great work from them and everyone else.
Made some rice. Sautéed some mushrooms and green peppers to add to it. Now sitting in front of the TV eating and waiting for the news to start
For those who want a preview of today’s movie
The past couple of weeks have been a busy movie watching time. From the baffling Grudge 3, the interesting Nightmare Detective and the it was what it was High Plains Invaders. There were about a half dozen movies that were watched. Be glad you missed a number of them.
Another movie that passed me by.
I think a number of these silly B horrors I watch should be passed by.
Like Dark star?
Just came by to drop this off:
I liked Dark Star
Lunch has been eaten. Dishes are done. Laundry is folded. I think it’s movie time.
Jack: I know! What are they thinking?!
Today’s movie is The Burrowers.
The DVR says:
Terror runs deep in this hybrid horror-western film starring Clancy Brown about a group of settlers battling a horde of burrowing monsters. IN 1879, a family from a small settlement has been brutally dragged into the hills.
Even the writeup is baffling.
Forget the rules!
This program has been rated 14A
awww, he want to ask for her hand in marriage
Get into the root cellar
I don’t think it’s Indians
Another movie with sound level issues
Bodies and blood everywhere. And we’re only five minutes into the movie
The indians did not take them you idiot!
Hey, a cricket!
This movie is dedicated to Rhettro :cheerful:
Time to find the indians! What dough heads
Examining more dead bodies.
Hey, let’s look at this hole in the ground!
“Those blanket heads will peel you like an orange, boy”
For all the talk of going after Indians, they have yet to leave the area.
Hey look, it’s the army men. The uniform is dark blue, bordering on black. Does that make them confederate or union?
Horse found a hole in the ground. Must be gophers.
“Skinny woman. Mind as well just poke the boy.”
Union, confederate was grey.
Hey, that wasn’t very nice.
HOw can you question them when you kill them?
Dragging him by the neck. Ouch
Ewww, they tore his foot off.
A tobacco pouch made from an indian scrotum. Yuck.
This movie is sloooooooow
Taking pity on the Indian
“Any reason to drink is a good one”
Seriously, this movie had good promise at the start
I think the soldier is going insane
I hope something evil happens.
CP: Kings of Metal — Van Canto
BTW Van, why is RS your female dog?
The grass is waving ominously. I hope the army commander bites it first
morning. Four army men missing. NOt the commander though. Boo
Hey, anther hole. Sooner or later these dips will see the connection.
My inner cricket approves.
The civilians realized the military were idiots. They’ve decided to follow the trail of holes while the military… goes to the reservation
Bed time again.
ewww. he peed on his hand then wiped it on his pants
The black soldier cook deserted and joined the civilians
Why do burrowing monsters want to kidnap various people anyway? This movie better explain it or I’ll be mad
“Who takes men and horses and leaves the valuables to rot?
HOw to stave off boredom. throwing rocks at trees
They found one of hte missing people. OMG, she’s still alive… sort of.
Trying to figure out why they buried her alive.
I stand by my statement Rhett.
Splitting up. The kid is taking the sort of alive girl to town. The men… looking for others.
Rhett, you should know by now that my play by plays are not really very informative.
Kicked by a horse
What the hell is he doing?
ewww, he kissed her goodnight
I think he’s dead
shot the horse. That wasn’t nice
Sleeping with a semi-dead girl. That’s not creepy at all
Just a Bladerunner ref TEB.
That reminds me of one of my prom dates.
Burning poison oak
Why did he shoot the dead Indian in both eyes?
Bed time again!
Where did everybody go?
Screams! Bullet Shots!
Those weren’t Indians
They’re starting to look a little worse for wear
Talking to an indian. Getting back story.
ewww, the crow pulled a bone off the semi-dead girl.
Man’s turning into a zombie
While you are here TEB, have you done the whole seeing the Polar Bears at Churchill Manitoba thang?
I think they’re starting to distrust their comrade who’s turning into a zombie.
No Van. I’ve lived in Manitoba but on the southern’ border.
However, we do occasionally get brown bears wander our neighbourhood here.
Shooting burrowers. I don’t think it’s working
He’s dead already
Most of these movies are usually 90 minutes long. Not this one, it’s a full two hours. It sure feels like it.
“Little fish for the trap”
It’s not for him, it’s for Maryanne
That wasn’t nice
Shut up and die already!
Ok, this is actually kind of laughable
Here they come
Burrowers eating zombie guy. Yum
Saving the indian. How the tables have turned.
The only good burrower is a dead burrower
Now what’s he doing. What ever it is, it’s gross
Here comes the sun
Now we know how to kill them
Ugh. still a half hour left of this movie
Look what I found
they hung them. Really?
Hey look. It’s the stupid army leader
Wait, it’s over? There’s still 30 minutes left. Must have long credits.
Yup. Credits have cut scene of things happening.
I personally think that was a stupid ending. The movie wasn’t very good to begin with but that ending…
I liked the ending credits song, though
Believe it or not, the Eliza Dushku movie was better.
Hit fast forward. movie is really over.
The next movie on my DVR isn’t a horror. It is The Spirit with Samuel L. Jackson. Not sure when I’ll have time to watch it.
Ok, on this silly note, Bunny out!
I can’t see the point:
Seems like everyone at IMBD commented that the ending to The Burrowers was pretty bad.
Why some old musicians should just shut the fuck up:
Crazy, Van. I consider myself – or did at one point – a Stevie Nicks superfan, and even I think that’s leotarded.
GET OFF MY LAWN! You stupid rock ruining Chinese manipulated hacker reclusive kids!!!!
Sounds like a bit of paranoid ranting from the uninformed. In a lot of ways, the internet saved rock and roll for me. There are a lot of bands I wouldn’t know existed if not for the net.
CP: A Girl Named Pike — Throwing Muses
It’s National Topless Day? Why isn’t that noted on my calendar?
Wait, they have a day for that? YES.
I prefer slinky to poke you in eye with a sprung!
What EssBee said!
OK. What’d I miss?
CP: Sable On Blond — Stevie Nicks
How rock used to be, before the internet and life as we know it.
CP: Superstition — The Kills
CP: The Sea Is A Good Place To Think Of The Future — Los Campesinos!
Some people just don’t know how to age gracefully, it seems.
Two great reviews of Satoshi Kon’s legacy:
Satoshi Kon and His Legacy To One (Loser) Anime Fan
Remembering Satoshi Kon
I’m still bummed about his passing: 46 is far too young. And cancer, yet again, steals someone that shouldn’t have been taken.
I highly recommend all his work.
EssBee and ditto win for listening to The Kills and Los Campasinos
I know not of Satoshi Kon
Cancer is fucking everywhere. Everywhere I look. My life is saturated in cancer and it disturbs me greatly. I realize I am hyper sensitive to it but it seems even when I decide to forget about cancer for a moment it appears. Everywhere.
but not always in a bad way
A guy for the company I am working for right now in the Chicago branch of the office is coming back to work Sept 1 after successfully treating and eliminating himself of a brain tumor.
Brain tumors are the hardest cancer to destroy being that they are in the brain and all.
oh look, I just talked about cancer for this entire post
and now for something completely different!
speaking of boobs… omg… I am in love with the most boob-a-licious woman
I covet her and her boobs and her red hair and *droool*
let me locate a photo of her
she is beee-you-tea-full!
she is gorgeous and her character on Mad Men is the coolest and I love everything about her
I am swooned and smitten with her
ok I have emails to catch up on then I should go to bed
night christina my sweet
Mad Men, season 1 added to Netflix.
Welcome to the 60’s..
Eating pineapple, drinking coffee and loading spreadsheets into my computer. All things considered, I’d rather be in bed.
You mean they finally are putting women with actual curves back on the television? ‘Bout damned time.
To borrow a line,
Ms. Hendricks has the ability to make grown men feel underage.
Both she AND her character are so completely Swoonworthy.
Agreed, agreed, agreed.
LUV The Kills.
It cant be this simple…
Oh wait it is.
It’s another cricket inducing day I see.
Went to IMDB. I don’t think I’ve seen a single Michael Cera movie.
I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.
A little serenade oh
A little co cocaine oh
Love me some VV.
However, IMDB did say he was going to be in an upcoming Gilligan’s Island movie.
Which leads to the question, do we really need a Gilligan’s Island movie? I say no.
Kills do Velvet Underground
Ugh….. is he “little buddy”?
Its both a good and bad thing, Bunny. Hes been in some real good stuff to go with the filth.
I’ll wait until SP comes to video, then I’ll be able to say I’ve seen him in a movie 🙂
Good point. Tho I think youd like Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist as well.
IMDB doesn’t say who he’s playing at this point Lo, but I think it would make the most sense he would be the title character.
Maybe I’ll give N & N a try… at some point in the future.
… I don’t know. If he grew his hair out a little bit he could play Mary Anne.
Mary Ann was too beefy
If we gave him a blond wig and a pair of coconuts found on the island, I suppose he could be Ginger
I just want you to know I’m tired of looking at big numbers in tiny little boxes.
this is just mean
Lady J pointed this out. The dude behind this is a nutjob:
(I’m guessing a bit NSFW-ish)
the going topless for women argument is not a new one. It’s been raised occasionally in various cities in Canada too. I actually do see both sides of the argument.
…but that doesn’t mean I’m going to remove my shirt in public any time soon.
But it’s for FREEEEEDOOOOMMMMMMMMMMM!
I have never seen a single episode of Gilligan’s Island.
I enjoyed N&n.
As mentioned, I really enjoyed SP.
I’m also a great believer that those us that are tonally challenged should keep plenty of clothes on..
..and I’m not talking audio!
I’m a thick coat today..
That would have been a bit surreal.
Really, Van? I actually can’t remember a single episode, other than the Harlem Globetrotters’ special episode, and the one where a phone cable washed up on the island, but Gilligan did something wacky and it washed back out to sea.
What are we talking about?
Ginger was a readhead.
Yup, I don’t think it crossed the pond, unless it was during the day when I was at school.
I have a good excuse, it appears I wasn’t yet born when it was aired in the UK:
Now I get the GI reference in last weeks DP..
That girl is hard to get.
But you can win her yet
“I’m a thick coat today”
All the better to wrap you up in my dear 😉
Ah, I confirm my suspicion. Christina Hendricks was Saffron on a couple (ok, so there weren’t more than a couple in the whole series) of episodes of Firefly.
She seems a bit more “enhanced” in TSH’s picture than I remember her being in Firefly.
***dammit, but I hate when I leave my computer and forget to hit the submit comment button. I wrote this comment six hours ago…***
Van, I think it’s safe to say that, pretty much, all of us caught GI in reruns, not when it first came out.
Well indeed TEB, but the UK didn’t get reruns.
The Kills doing Velvet Underground is so nice.
Oh! I didn’t even recognize her as Our Mrs. Reynolds.
I’m shocked it’s taken this long for a GI movie, what with the last decade’s success of Lost and Survivor.
…. And by GI movie, I mean Gilligan’s Island, not Gastro-Intestinal.
She was super young on FF, though, Ed. Maybe she matured?
“I’m a thick coat today”
This should become a NEW colloquialism … I’m just not sure what it should mean.
I means you want someone to try you on them, J0e
*gee, this cough is going around – cough*
Pity, they could have brough Raquel Welch out of retirement for that one.
“I’m a thick coat today, come unbutton me.”
Rock Band 3 playlist:
I think I shall resist that one.
Well, in any case, Ms. Hendricks is quite smokin’. There’ no denying that.
Aaaand we’re in the happy place….
“That’s some bible.”
Or something like that. 🙂
Ah Glenn Beck. How I loathe thee.
“Its just coincidence”….
Coincidentally, it’s not a coincidence.
I know nothing about Glen Beck.
I found that riveting.
I think The Daily Show summed up his latest self promo event best.
Glenn Beck – “I have a scheme!”
CP: Good Enough — Van Halen
Glen Beck Hansen? Talk about Un Perdedor. . .
Re: Van’s article
The last sentence in the article was “They also do pets.”
Frankly, I don’t care about they do behind closed doors.
And so, while we try to purge that particular image out of our brains
Sorry… purge failed.
So my friend, who has a six week old baby, come over and we went out for lunch.
This was the first time my cat has seen a baby. The baby was pretty well behaved, but my cat was freaking out. Puffy tail and all. My friend fed the kid before we left and my cat wanted soooo much for this thing to be out of the house. I wouldn’t let the cat get too close. Being as neurotic as she is I was afraid the kid might get scratched. But it was kind of funny watching my cat get all freaky over this squirming bundle in the house.
Maybe I should have my kitty turned into an album when she passes… then again, maybe not.
The Daily Show did put Glenn Beck’s latest into perspective, I think.
I haven’t seen the latest Daily Show, but I do remember when they had Lewis Black on who basically said Glen Beck had Nazi Turrets.
That’s what I get for showing up late to the Pan, Ed and ditto beat me to the punch on “Our Mrs. Reynolds.” “Woah, good Bible.”
Fire Fly has had it’s share of attractive women amoungst its ranks.
Melinda Clark anyone?
I always get Jiminy Glick and Glenn Beck confused.
Rhettro: awesome episode. Too bad it was one of the unaired ones. 🙂
And by that, I mean the Heart of Gold episode. She played Nandi.
Not Amazonian enough.
Anyway, top 20 essential TV shows..decided by someone you dont know:
I’m not going to argue with that list. It’s all subjective anyway.
Van: Did you see the episode? She kicked ass in it. 🙂
Although cynicism aside, any top 20 list with Blakes 7 in is a good one.
Unless of course it’s the top 20 scifi shows I hate….
Darn, memory is failing me ditto, I’ll dig out my Firefly DVD boxset.
Still, that’s a pretty good list.
OK. I’m showing that I’ve not seen one of the “Essentials” but, why are there only 6 people in the Blake’s 7 photo?
I don’t know if I can argue the list. I’ve seen all except Cowboy Bebop, Blake’s 7, and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex.
I’d probably feel more comfortable adding more to the list, though.
I can’t remember if Zen (the ships computer) or Orac (the super computer they pick in in the series) is classed as one of the crew.
Oops … I just coughed on Van’s Facebook wall.
Bless me. It must be getting close to go home and stay in for a couple days.
It was a corruption of that line near the end of the SP movie.
This may interest some.
<=== a.k.a.: "some", it would seem
Very old news. What I mean by that is, this has been done for years. The ruling itself is irrelevant.
JØ: The ruling is actually very relevant. It illustrates that the courts are now in favor of the removal of the bill of rights in an overt fashion.
Lejon: I suppose it’s a matter of degrees. In my eyes, that’s been shown very blatantly around the AT&T “secret room” was revealed. I’m sure it was earier than that, but I’m lazy, and that’s the first I can recall.
As much as I loathe to say this, if you aren’t in your house or someone else’s you are in a public sphere. There is no entrenched right to privacy. Unfortunately.
Unless you’re a cop. It’s more and more illegal to tape the pigs.
I haven’t seen half of the list, but some of the half I haven’t seen are on my list to see. Can’t argue with it.
It’s Sly B’s birthday today and we’re gonna party a bit. Her mom’s here, and they are currently playing the hell out of Lego Star Wars.
I dunno, Van, I think C. Hendricks would rule as Wonder Woman.
As important as I’ve always heard that Blake’s 7 was, Netflix doesn’t have it and doesn’t even list it as something I can save for when they get it. Damn Netflix.
CP: All Lined Up — Shriekback
CP: The State of Massachusetts — Dropkick Murphys
Hair – its not Netflix’ fault. Its not been released on DVD in N. America nor is it slated to be, therefore Netflix obtaining it is impossible for the moment.
CP: Highschool Of The Dead OP — Kishida Ky?dan and The Akeboshi Rockets
Well then damn the people that own Blake’s 7 and won’t put it out on DVD :ermm:
Damn somebody! Damn them to hell!
You can damn me….Im used to it…
You may find yourself invoking a classic Firefly line…
Inside the outsider
goodnight Gilbert O’Sullivan.
I never spend more than 15$ for a tshirt.
I just bought a Marina and the Diamonds shirt for 30$
Im hoping she marries me one day to offset the dollar to pound cost.
I feel numb most of the time,
The more I get the higher,
I’ll climb, and I will wonder why,
I got dark only,
Looking for the golden light,
Oh, it’s a reasonable sacrifice.
CP: Nirvana – I Hate Myself and I Want to Die
John Scalzi’s thoughts on why SP did poorly on it’s opening weekend:
So the first two SP books have arrived…time to look at pictures.
RE: Scalzi article
Reminds very much of a voice mail I sent in to Slice of Sci Fi a few year back explaining why it was OK with me for SyFy to bring in wrestling and the dollars it produces so I can have BSG, Eureka, Stargate, etc.
We’re just not a big enough audience on our own.
Hopefully it will take more in overseas sale, the showing I went to was quite full and that was in the afternoon in an arty farty cinema.
Which reminds me, there was this young couple at the cinema that day, and she was stunning and he was tall and gangly and spotty and I started thinking “I wonder if he believes in God..”
just found The Pirate Movie (1982) on Youtube. haven’t seen it in years. Think I’ll do a play-by-play, see how that works.
Kristy McNichol! :wub:
Oooh, an 80’s boom box. That certainly dates the film.
Is that William Katt? No, a check of IMDB says its Christopher Atkins. But it looks and sounds like William Katt.
Awww. Kristy’s got the glasses and frumpy clothes that make her look dull thing going on, and her friends are mean to her
Wait. It looks like she daydreamed about getting on a boat and then started dreaming from there. bad editing or is she day dreaming that she’s dreaming?
The camp factor just turned way up
He is the Pirate King, his cod piece is oh so shiny and his hair is impecable
Keeping in mind that The Pirate Movie was a “modern” take on the Pirates of Penzance (or however the &#%$ that’s spelled), Kristy looking straight into the camera and saying “can you believe this song?” is priceless
he claims that not having tattoos proves that he’s not a pirate. I would say that makes me king of the pirates, but I don’t think I have the cod piece to back that up
reply to “frederic without a k” = “maybel without a K”
This movie is both dirtier and funnier than I remembered
How about a drink? Yes, lets get schlossed.
Gilbert & Sullivan song, 80’s pop song, G&S song. I can take one or the other, but I’m getting dizzy
now we’re on the roof for no apparent reason
Star Wars saves the day!
Just realized that her hairstyle is almost identical to his. Thank you 80s
They really like their blue girlie drinks in this movie
I’m glad somebody brought up the gay pirate question
love ballad. Time to go to the bathroom
I loved that flick, Hair. Kristy McNichol . . . I’ll be in my bunk.
We’re off for Sly B’s bday lunch with her brother and his wife and their kids. Sushi for lunch!
the Keystone Cops?
pink panther references too. Is nothing sacred?
Time for the wacky fight scene. I wouldn’t be surprised if it turned into a pie fight
no pie fight, but they did work in an indiana jones reference. Nicely done
HOLY SHIT… a pie fight!
She wants a happy ending! And boy wouldn’t I like to give it to her
Back to 1982, but he’s still wearing a pirate shirt. Hmmm
Excellent movie. Now I need to get back to work
Make the coughing stop.
I now give you the following messages…
They will contain the random songs my Pandora station plays for me at work.
I hope you enjoy the stylings of Cj’s Pandora Station…

Whew. Caught up.
And about to turn on public Television and watch for free.
I wanna see this movie: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1027718/
I haven’t even see the first Wall Street movie, think I’ll pass on that one.
CP: Wander Radio #53
“Repo Men” was an interesting concept, but not terribly well executed. Not bad for a rental, but I definitely wouldn’t have seen it in the theater.
Vaguely related to Dark Star:
I haven’t seen the 1st Wall Street either, but I want to see this one anyway. I have a feeling it doesn’t matter much.

So, the bad editing and the smoking were pointed out. Could it be it was on purpose, since 2001 was praised for its accuracy (even to this day), and the great editing (the famous bone-to-ship transition)? Since I didn’t watch it, I am just guessing.
The beat on the closing song — the klaatu bit — is friggin’ awesome. I meant to say that the first time I heard it. Must have! Must download. . .

Not to mention that ‘the Discovery should have huge cooling fins for the engine (Clarke mentions this in ‘The Lost Worlds of 2001’)

Tangents, isn’t their logo a little bullseye?
Can someone explain why Viva La Vida by Coldplay reminds me of Christmas songs?
Okay … here’s a question for anyone here who has ever flown in a commercial airliner … have you ever been pestered by a fly during the flight?
A friend of mine just flew round trip, cross country on United and said that on BOTH flights (several days apart) the plane contained flies. To the point that when she swatted at one with the seatpocket “emergency” pamphlet … the flight attendant joked that they needed to start awarding mileage points for every fly that was killed.
I can’t recall ever seeing any insect on board an aircraft much less a swarm of flies.
You know you are really enjoying something when you don’t want it to end.
I’ll be saying the sky is blue and the grass is green is next.
Good to see you enjoying happy moments, Van.
J0e, I’ve never been attacked by any flying pests on airplanes either.
There was this bug at the drive thru this morning though… it was enormous and I refused to keep my window rolled down. The guy giving me my coffee laughed a little until he saw it!
I’m sure I don’t have to tell the American’s here this, but I will anyway:
Tonight – Bad Universe
Speaking of space stuff, Some years back a researching put forth the theory that most of water comes from space in the form of (basically) ice that strikes the atmosphere and becomes water vapor.
Then there was gnashing of teeth about the theory but I’ve never heard if there was a final ruling on the validity of this theory.
Any one here know about that?
I’m drunk and all alon on the deadpan how sad. And even worse I havent listened to the episode b/c I want to watch the movie first.
“I shaved off my beard for you, devil woman!”
Erm, I may be a bit late on the YoSaffBridge reference…
*wave* hallo thar JB
Hiya, hope you are not lost and have not ralphed…
both lost and ralph are a permanent state for me…
of course they don’t mean what most people think they mean
screw it I’m listening to the episode anyway. fuck spoilers

I should probably turn the computers off at this point, but fuck it I find this ammusing
AMD kills off the ATi brand:
Of course, in the basement, I frequently hear the cats ralph, and it remains lost until found, usually by me, and usually barefoot or sock-footed.
Like any politician I deny responsibility for your problems JB
I’m kind of surprised that AMD held onto the ATI name for this long.
We bought a(nother) new (to us) car on Saturday. It is a 2008 Scion xB that had 8500 mi or so on it. It is orange with graphics, at least according to the original CarSoup ad. In reality it is black with graphics, but the graphics are primarily orange and cover the whole thing.

FYI all, the 60L3 emailer document is prepared at last. You final chance to get onboard (I’ll alter the doc, it’s ok) is here.
(Johnny Null, thanks! I can email you the mashup)
So are we going to get hit by an asteroid in the near future?
If they pull this down due to our purchasing it, I apologize.
Movie tiein games are infamous for being rather crap (with a few exceptions like the Star Wars Arcade), but the Scott Pilgrim game has been getting good reviews:
I’ve downloaded the trial versions for both Xbox 360 and PS3, for some reason the PS3 version plays full screen on my HDTV and the 360 version doesn’t..hmmmm!
It’s still up JB, and if it gets your from A to B, that is what is important..
So it’s a Bank Holiday in the UK, the weather is a crappy (yah!) and I will be in crowd avoidance mode for the rest of the day.
I’m sorry, was I crowding you? I’ll scoot a foot or so to the left.
If I’m flat on the sidewalk is that considered crowding? I don’t think I’m that fat…
We also managed to get a loan at about half the interest rate of the other one, so that was an added bonus.
JB as Van said, it gets you from H to W and vice versa, plus you saved money soumds good to me. goodnight deadpan
No, no, Good Morning. The Deadpan Early Patrol is on duty.
The sun’s not up yet. Ugh.
It’s my understanding that the treacle Scions are particularly tasty.
Yes Sir! Ed…
Ok, caught up on comments. Glad you got a new car JB at a reasonable rate.
Our long weekend is next weekend Van
I’m way behind in my game playing and have a long list of upcoming ones so don’t think I’ll have time for the Scott Pilgrim game.
Now to look at the links.
Although in my case it’s afternoon now.
Jack: That would be tres shiny, thanks!
justa J0e: To my knowledge, that hypothesis is still very viable. In fact, the recent discovery of buckyballs, plus the finding of amino acids, seems to sort of meld together with the frozen-water-impacting-on-Earth idea, to result in what was termed “Panspermia”.
Fred Hoyle will be laughing in the afterlife on that one..now if only the steady state theory was true…
15 minutes left on my shift, then off to a nearby empty parking lot for a nap. This is a requirement from now on. I nap til I wake, then drive home and sleep my “night’s” worth.
Just checked out JB’s link.
He has not just bought one of these
It had been a while since I had heard anything about that. It was a pretty revolutionary theory when first made public.
Now, we need to develop a hypothesis to go with the term “DeadPanspermia”
I wish it would stop raining. The sound on the roof is making me sleepy.
Can’t help it, I’m going to tweet this too, but I have to say it more than once..
I just had to explain to a co-worker who Flock of Seagulls is…
hangs old head
After the explanation did they run, run so far away?
No, I brought the video up on my phone and he was like… “that sounds familiar…”
I’m like “well, of course because it’s awesome and they still play it all the time”
and he says, “I’m more of a Journey guy.”
JB – You got the awesome showroom model! That’s … awesome!
There, kitty litter changed and garbage taken out.
It needs a name, I’m leaning toward a pumpkin motif.

And, we’re back.
Went to one of our offices for a video conference with the India office (offices, offices, offices…)
Afterword, I drove across town to my regular office to get on my tasks. Well, come to find that the A/C has gone haywire in the building. Being on the first floor, it was only 90°F (32.2C for the non-domestic folk). The third floor was running closer to 100°F (38C).
So, I’ve packed up some stuff and brought it home to work on this afternoon. Working from home is not terribly effective for me, but likely more so that sweating my ass off. Most were leaving or heading to another building.
Hopefully order will be restored tomorrow.
“whipping it out”
Boy did I step in here at the wrong time. . . .
I am really starting to enjoy Haven. The characters have character & chemistry and I can put up with Vanamonde’s favorite part.
justa J0e: Happy to help.
Vanamonde: And if he heard of the brane theory, he’d beat his head against a desktop for a few minutes.
Congrats on the car purchase, JB – especially with the fancy paintjob.
You’ve blinded me with Scions.
Wow. How long have you waited to whip that one out? 😉
Jack’s a musician. They don’t usually -wait- to whip it out. :cough:
You mean like Devo or R. Kelly?

EssBee, I knew there was something up with all of those female gym teachers.
Some nice Mass Effect 2 cosplay:
Oooh, ditto, I NEED one of those for the office!
Jack? Miranda? Or the Coffee Maker? 😉
That is The Agenda, Jack.
I thought so! 🙂
A thought provoking article on Twilight, comics for girls, and female fans.
But the coffee maker looks awesome!
I have been pretty busy these past 5 days and I have a feeling I came in to read some comments at a bad time with all this “whipping it out” talk
Awesome cosplay of the Mass Effect’s Jack! Although, I would have a hard time accepting anyone else in the role of Miranda except for Yvonne Strahovski. She did the voice acting for Miranda, but it is quite obvious that the modelers took her likeness. I changed her to a brunette in the above example to illustrate this point. 🙂
reaper: Could be whipping out boobs
Johnny Null: Touché
Or maybe Cassy McKinnon. LOL
Could be whip creaming boobs?
but that involves covering them
A nice surprise when you lick it off though..

Evil Van? Hmmm. I like it.
On FB I’m talking to this Spanish woman, while her English is a million times better than my Spanish (which consists of Senor and Ole), she sometimes comes out with some strange comments like:
“This question corrodes my curiosity”
I suspect she maybe using google to translate her Spanish into English.
Hello, Pan. I just sent in some content for the next part of the Dark Star Palooza via the voice mail line. I watched it this afternoon.
There was a lass who looked like Ramona from SP on the trAin today, I resisted ogling.

Just finished The Girl Who Played With Fire and started The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest. Really digging these novels.
The Mastodon video for “Oblivion” is very Dark Star-esque.
Indeed it is! That band is a bunch of sci-fi geeks.
Speaking of geekery, this is kinda cool:
First 31 60L3 Lines sent out. I hope to get to the rest tomorrow.
Well after enjoying the first two graphic novels in the SP series..I’ve ordered the rest…woot!
Morning Pan, off to see ‘The Girl Who Played With Fire’ today, looking forward to it.
Alright, let’s see if the office is less than 90°F this morning…
Speaking of geekery, this is kinda cool:
As long as we’re going to be geeky here. This comic misspelled Silmarillian. Shame on them.
Just realized that I had an old, seldom used, email address listed for posting comments here. Jack, please use my gmail address to send 60 lines stuff. My apologies if they have already gone out and I missed them.

We watched Treasures of the Twilight Zone last night. The episodes (three of them) were hit-and-miss. However, the interview with Serling was really good. Usually we don’t bother with these, but I’m glad we gave it a watch. Very smart guy, very well spoken. It was nice to watch someone that really wanted to raise television to a high standard. It was also very interesting to listen to Serling and Wallace discuss censorship and pre-censoring. A letter-writing campaign was actually raised (and successful) against an episode of Lassie, the one where Lassie gave birth to puppies. The letters (basically all sent the same day, from the same area (the south), with the same handwriting) compared the episode with taking kids to a burlesque show. [I know how to spell “burlesque”? How’d that happen?] I was shocked that you could essentially cut-and-paste the discussion and drop it into current-day television, and it would fit perfectly.
Van, looking forward to a review.
Watched a movie yesterday. It took place on another planet. The scary creature was… space bears!
It was a terrible movie
Best movie evar! http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0790746/
That looks . . . um . . . “good.”
Yes… “good” is how I’d describe this movie
I know a number of Panites listen to Decoder Ring Theatre podcast. What do you think of the original unreleased episodes?
Hubby and I are really digging them. All countries should have a dog shadow leader :cheerful:
CP: Wah Wah Blues — Earl Hooker
My iPod must be in tune with my life. It seems to pick appropriate songs for the moment.
Well I would have to agree that ‘The Girl who played with Fire’ felt it was just setting things up for the third movie, still good though.
Apart from the fights..but that maybe because they were realistic..( darn that Scott Pilgrim movie..)
Well there is a sex scene between two women Essbee..so that may be all you need.
This may be my last comment this week… I’m busy.
OK… It may NOT be my last comment this week.
…still busy, though…
I knew there would be, Van. I’ve read the book!
I watched the first episode of Ultraviolet through Hulu+ yesterday. Besides the bewildering car chase (I have no idea what was supposed to be happening), it was nearly as good as I was expecting.
CP: One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer — George Thorogood & The Destroyers
I haven’t read the books, so don’t know how faithful the films are.
Also Lisabeth’s girlfriend being a kick boxer..was that in the first book? It wasn’t in the first film.
So the new Apocalyptica album is pretty good, if you can forgive the occasional crappy pop-metal tune. I’ll have a review up at Metalasylum.net eventually.
Maybe a little over optimistic, but very interesting.
I have to give the ne Apocalyptica a listen. 🙂 I wanted to follow up on your Mastodon – Dark Star comment. In addition to them being geeks, check out the beards! Must be a band made up of Linux programmers. 🙂
Back from shopping!
Rhett, hubby and I commented on the DarkStar beards in our recording. You’re right, they’re silly.
Got some good news this morning. I’ve been on a waiting list for a specialist for several months. Finally have a date in early October. For me, this is really good news.
TEB: Good luck!
Good news TEB, way to go.
In regards to the beards in DS, the ship and the crew were breaking down, so could be argued that either couldn’t shave (no spare water or equipment) or couldn’t be bothered to shave..Boiler did attempt to use scissors to keep his moutache in trim.
SFX reviews the latest TP book:
Well that explains the beards of Dark Star, but what of Mastodon?
Have you ever heard of a hairless Mastodon?
Those Woolly Mammoths can be inscrutable.
Rhettro: :happy: Hopefully I’m back for good now. You’ll hear from me in the next episode (I hope) talking about Dark Star a bit, and you’ll definitely hear me in 60 Lines Part 3. I got my lines today.
TEB: Original unreleased episodes? Is this a monthly supporter perk?
Just saw a Daily Show from last week where he was talking about Fox’s coverage of the controversial community center in New York.
Apparently the Fox and friend people were going on and on about how it was being funded by this Saudi Sheik who had know ties to terrorist baddies and funded their activities. They always called the dude by his title but never his name … turns out that this EVIL SHEIK … is one of Ruport Murdock’s business partners and PART OWNER OF FOX !!!
So, if you watch Fox news you are increasing their viewer-ship thus increasing what they can charge for Advertisement which makes this EVIL SHEIK richer and their fore, by Fox’s own reasoning … … you are clearly supporting TERRORISTS!!!
“Follow the money” INDEED ! LOL
On more DS type topical stuff …
Re: the beards.
I never took it as reflection of the fashion of the times. Like the “target practice” in the hallway I figured that the lack of grooming was just another sign of how they had given up caring about “social convention”.
Haha, justa. I would totally marry Jon Stewart.
Amy: That’s great news. 🙂
JOe: It seems reasonable that Fox would take funding from the very people that create the controversies they want to cover. The evil sheiks get a kick back from their nefarious schemes, and Fox news gets more fearmongering stories to cover that advertisers love. Win win?
Amy, while I’m a monthly supporter, my hubby is not and he got them. Actually he got them and I didn’t. Go to decoder ring theatre on I-tunes. I found them there when he told me. They’re called Red Panda (Original Universe). There should be six of them.
Wait, I didn’t get any 60 lines yet. 🙁
In other news: Frak yeah, I got my copy of The Starter today! :biggrin:
TEB: Oh, yes, I see them now. They’re showing up back at the beginning of the Decoder Ring Theatre feed.
Amy, also, for whatever reason, they’re dated 2005 on i-tunes
Ok, you caught that yourself 🙂
It’s beginning to sound like The World is not Enough for Fox… or a bad plot to a mediocre Bond film…
Lejon, would that mean Glenn Beck was Octopussy?
No, I’d make him Nick Nack
Or at the very least, remove the “octo”
Hey Jack, on a side note, show notes are going to be late Thursday. I have to go downtown first thing in the morning. They may not be done until closer to lunch time.
Glenn Beck would be more like “Odd Job” or maybe Max Zorin.
Bill O’Reilly would be Blofeld.
At first I thought S. Palin might be “Plenty O’Toole” but she was mistakenly killed by the baddies … and really much to big a part for Caribou Barbie.
Really, she’d be more like Maybelle (the wife of Sheriff J.W. Pepper) from The Man with the Golden Gun”.
Hmmm. I’m deciding that maybe I like Bond films a little too much.
On a much less interesting note, the transfer off all files over to the new HD for my 360 went smoothly..almost astounding for an MS product.
Just in case anyone is thinking of reading “Total Oblivion, More or Less”… don’t.
Well, I’ve had to abandon my office for the next week and a half. A/C is only partially working in the building, so I’ve had to camp in an empty office in our adjacent building.
I wish I could do that Ed. I could stand to get away from the majority of the people in my current office. LOL
You aren’t alone TEB, haven’t got my lines either.
-Congrats on the data transfer, Van. It’s relevant to today’s conversation if you hummed the James Bond theme.
-Justa J0e is apparently a Bond expert.
-Sorry to hear about your heat woes. Keep cool, Ed.
-The 60 Lines emails are going out in alpha order, so Ryah, UsedHair, and Vanamonde will be closer to the end.
I have my lines. I’m ready for my close up….ok, maybe not.
A Bond film was the first R rated film I can recall really wanting to see. With every fibre of my being I wanted to see that film.
My parents wouldn’t take me.
i won’t say which one as it would seriously date me. Not that I couldn’t use a serious date.
I also remember the first PG film I ever went to see. It was a science fiction (now) classic.
Some one make sure the close hangers are kept away from Ed.
NS – FTW!!!
Good. It’s not just me.
Was Alien for me, it had an 18 certificate in the UK so I couldn’t see on it’s release, and the buzz about the film made that very frustrating.
I can’t say for sure what my first film I saw at the cinema..but probably was Where Eagles Dare (take THAT Father Time!).
Murderess Lane from the latest Hub was pretty good.
First film in a theater was True Lies (1994).
Sorry if you’ve all heard this before, but my oldest memory is of seeing the Star Wars opening crawl in the theater.
Considering how many people get killed in that film it surprises me they would let little kids see that movie….ah but it was Germans of course..
And my apologies Van for kinda dissing that movie a few months back.
I’d love to see a *good* remake.
The first movie that I remember going to see in a theater is The Rescuers Down Under. It’s also the only movie I’ve ever walked out of, but that was because the villain in it was really scary.
Anyway, all of the 60 Lines emails are away! Contact me if you haven’t received them, or if you have any questions.
I cannot claim to have discovered this on my own. It was tweeted by Stephen Fry.
Although as somebody mentioned on the comments, if the filtering is doing it’s job, why not just add cane sugar.
Well, it may be obvious, but
“Then we add cane sugar”
Won’t get you tweeted by Stephen Fry.
/strokes stubble on chin
It’s dark outside. What’s that about?
Under the category of “why?”.
I have this big dragon night light in my living room. Hubby gets up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, sees the night light has burned out and decides, right then and there, to change the bulb. At 3:30 in the morning!
I woke up, noticed he wasn’t beside me and found him fiddling with it. I asked what he was doing he said “changing the light bulb” I asked him why it couldn’t wait until morning, shook my head and went back to bed.
Silly hubby 🙂
Month end. Ugh :pouty:
Want to hear something amusing. I was grumping yesterday about not getting my sixty lines. Now that I have them, I can’t hand them in until tomorrow – stupid month end ugh :pinch:
ok, so I find the little things amusing :silly:
I may actually hold off until the weekend and see if I can get hubby involved. Although I won’t hold my breath. :sideways:
You could always threaten to huff and puff and blow his guitar down..
Are you insinuating I’m full of air – hot or otherwise? :tongue:
No, with school back in, it’s harder to pin him down for other stuff. Especially if he’s playing with his friends this weekend, which I won’t know he’s doing until Friday.
A good review of one of my fav Asimov novels:
Contain pictures of covers for editions of the book released over the years.
Yeah it’s a love story, bite me!
Cool article Van. Why don’t I remember that story. I have it. Must reread it.
Ok Van, I’ll bite you 😉
So you’re saying it’s another vampire story?
The first movie I can ever remember seeing at all in a theater is The Secret of N.I.M.H..
Searching for a film and ran across this fun looking little film –
The first movie I remember seeing in the theater is Jungle Book. No, it wasn’t the original run.
My mother had this thing for horror movies with bugs in them. I don’t remember the title, but I remember seeing one about a woman who was a black widow spider (literally), one in space where the people were bit by bugs, etc. You get the picture.
I blame my mom for my absolute terror of creepy crawlies.
Ugh! I remember that Black Widow one..cheesey tv movie.
If it was now Van, I’d probably enjoy it (and do a Deadpan play by play) except for the fact that I won’t watch a movie with spiders, or even some other creepy crawlies, to this day.
My B-horror enjoyment came more recently. Once my Boo was old enough to enjoy it (about 13 or so – unlike my mom who dragged me to these, at the drive in, since I was born), twice a year, once around Halloween, once around spring, we would find the silliest movie we could and go see it together in the theater. She can’t go to movies any more and doesn’t live at home anyway so we now watch these cheesy movies on our own at home and compare notes later when we have lunch.
My first theater experience was Star Wars.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at Shea Plaza.
It didn’t end well.
My first theater experience was a Double Feature at the drive-in
Showing Rabbit Test and Jaws.
I don’t think I was supposed to understand either of them…
Haven’t heard of it before, looked up Rabbit Test on IMDB. That looks like a truly awful movie.
CP: It’s Alright, It’s OK — Leah Andreone
TEB – Was it the one with Billy Crystal?
yes it was – my god that was terrible…
EssBee, maybe we were in the same theater!
WNDR, was Rabbit Test the sequel to Watership Down?
The rabbit died?!
Awwww, poor bunny 🙁
Jack, did you hear someone’s dad asking why popcorn cost so goddamn much in a loud voice? If so, could be!
(we didn’t get out much)
I saw the original Star Wars twice in the theater during it’s original run; once with mom, once with dad. My dad undoubtedly just cheapskated right past the concessions stand. And my mom probably had a purse full of hidden snacks.
Did you older guys and gals have intermissions in the 70’s?
I remember when I saw ‘Where Eagles Dare’, the picture was stopped for ten minutes (where Richard Burton and Clint Eastood were killing the radio operators) so they could sell more ice cream and sweets…
When I was younger, mom would mostly go to drive in double features. I remember the dancing concession treats between the movies.
Yes, Van, I remember intermissions, but do resent the “older” a bit!
I was thinking the same thing EssBee, about being called “older” :cheerful:
OK, I said I was going to be better about promoting my stuff….
My flash fiction story, “Machine Hymns to the Dreaming God” is out in the latest episode of Michelle M. Welch’s “Theme and Variations (Pus 2)” anthology.
Well I was trying to be diplomatic.
I’ll get my coat..
