  1. I hope you get to sleep that off, Lo Pan.
    JohnBoze: This episode has a lot of you in it. Most of us will miss out on your PBP from the previous episode.

    Congrats, Kurt! You win a play of your Deadpan bumper in this episode!

    Goodnight :Goon:

  2. Hey Pan.

    It seems, if I’m going to sleep in, I’m going to do it on a Thursday. Don’t know why. Must just be one of those things.

  3. Today’s Dead Pan was pretty smurfy. I’m not sure what I more excited about, the new smurftastic version of “Closer” or the Deadpanized version of “Still Alive” that I think Amy is now obligated to sing all the way through.

  4. Well like all big cities it has it’s no go areas, but they have pumped a lot of money into the city in recent years and it’s a nice place to visit..especially if you are a fan of the new Dr Who.

  5. I want to get a donair for lunch but I’m also expecting a delivery. I guess, if the delivery person doesn’t show up on the next hour, I’m stuck eating what ever’s in the house

  6. “The yard guys ate here to clean the leaves. Unfortunatly most of them are still on the trees”

    You had to feed the yard guys first?
    Why did they go into the trees? Was it something you fed them? Did the yard service hire monkeys?

    I . am . so . confused.

  7. Good bye good bye good bye bye. Leave it. Damn, now I have to fish out a cassette.

    Amy, if you need a backing track for “Still Alive” I volunteer to make one for you, although with my limited skill it could take some time. 🙂 Perhaps my skill will be better after our smurfy upcoming project.

  8. I FINALLY was able to see The Boondock Saints as well as its sequel. I fucking hate Troy Duffy. Hate him like genital warts. However these are great fucking films. The original still holds up 10 years later as a piece of magic and its much maligned sequel of last year (probably because no one wants to give Duffy credit for anything anymore) is right on par with the original, tho it is a few notches below. Love these films and love the soundtracks.

    Try blasting The Skids “Here Come the Saints” while not thrashing about all giddy like. Delicious.

    Goodnight MacManus.

  9. It occured to me this morning … given the time of year, we should help Ed with some home buying tips.

    If the Realtor showing the home has an eye-patch and a hook for a hand you should move along.

    If there is an old cemetery/grave/Indian burial mound on the property … despite the stainless steel appliances, you should look for another house.

    If it is a multi-story house and there is an upper room for which the Realtor can’t seem to find a key … yeh, next house please.

    Finally, if the walls bleed … at the very least you are going to need to negotiate an exorcism into the closing costs. Paint is NOT going to cover that up!

  10. Keeping in mind “location location location” –

    Actually stop by the local schools. An unsettling sense of fear and despair surrounding the school is normal, the slight smell of rotting flesh is not.
    Also, a preponderance of twins in the school yard could be not so good.

    Take the time to check out th zoning in your neighborhood. Avoid any area’s that allow “light industry”, “mobile homes” or “Inter-dimensional portals”.

  11. Meet the neighbors before you make an offer and pay attention to their homes.

    An excessive amount of chainsaws, extensive collections of puppets, well equipped surgery rooms and the presence of Bruce Campbell are all things that might lead to “buyer’s remorse” in the future.

  12. On a different note, I wanted to record something but hubby seems to have taken all the microphones. May have to improvise.

  13. Today’s movie is Goblin. The DVR Says:

    Halloween spawns a goblin that is bent on taking a baby form an unsuspecting family, and it’s up to their teenage daughter to save her little brother from becoming the creature’s meal.

  14. Huey was sort of throwaway fun back in the day. About as relavent as pet rock now. Hey were talking about music, you know what that means. I have to talk about Nevermore. 🙂 Jeff Loomis and Warrel Dane will be releasing more solo albums in the near future, the new Sanctuary album already has three tracks written. Nevermore is still a priority so the wait should be less than five years. 🙂

  15. Mangan in the bathroom, please dont freak
    The door is locked, just you and me
    Can I take you to a studio that has glass laptops
    You can watch yourself, while you are casting.

  16. So the other day I was at Fry’s electronics and the girl at the counter had the most awesome breasts. It didn’t help that she had ample cleavage showing. It took all my will power to keep eye contact with her.

    (homer) Mmmm boobs (/homer)

  17. Sounds cool Ed.

    In keeping with the last meme, be sure that the previous owners take any sealed urns out of the basement. Those ashen footprints are a bitch to get off the ceiling.

  18. Ed – re: next door to Bruce Campbell

    If you have a moat.
    and maybe a chainsaw sharpener.
    … and don’t mind large breasted, “B” actresses coming and going all the time.
    … did I mention “Check to see if dimensional doorways are allowed”?

  19. Hello boys and Bunny. We just got a new HD TV, and are kinda enamored already, but are kinda disgusted with the costs associated with “free HDTV for life”.

    I posted Obama’s “It Gets Better” video on either my blog or FB and said “Nice message, as long as you don’t ask or don’t tell” which I realize is . . . well, judgey. To that I say SUE ME.

  20. Tonight’s video theme is questionable sanity. Started with Firefly Ep 14, now watching The Dark Knight, and if I’m still awake Fight Club

  21. The whole “I can order the assassination of American citizens and I don’t have to explain it because that’s a security secret” kind of spoiled my appreciation for the POTUS.

    Ooops, I got some politics on my shirt.

  22. I recently set up my sisters setop box so she could see some HDTV content on her 42 inch LCD TV.

    She wasn’t impressed, neither was my nephew, gives me hope some people won’t buy into this bullshit.

  23. we have prejudged you

    I sez: I am english, Irish, German, black, dutch, united states-ian, and a bunch of other shit.


    Dre sez: Jack is a sparkly vampire *swooooooon* that would explain his late nights…

    I sez: Have you ever seen or spoken to him in the daytime?

    Dre sez: hmmmmm… Yes I have. But maybe he has a ring like those vampires on Vampire Diaries that allows them to be in the sun.

  24. Dre sez: Cuz all your playlists have the same damn name!!

    I sez: Does not!

    Dre sez: Hugh1, Hugh2, punk1, punk2, punk rawk1, punk rawk2

    I sez: leave me alone! *sobs*

    dre sez: awwwww, I am so sorry pobercito

    I sez *snicker* works every time 😉

  25. Good evening deadpan, and special good evening to the incomparable TSH.

    I just had a conversation with my 8yr old niece about the LoTR movies 0_0

  26. Jack

    We are enjoying your music muchly

    LOL.. we can’t finish this because your 9″ smurfs started

    I sez: Dre baby, i want to smurf you from the inside
    Dre sez: swooon. I’ll be the smurfette to your papa smurf
    I sez: swooon!

  27. we sez: this is really good, Jack

    can’t wait to hear how it turns out.

    Can we contribute?
    Dre sez: we have no way to record anything

    I sez: i have no idea what I would do anyway. I ain’t gifted musically

    Jack if you can think of something we can do to contribute in our limited fashion let us know

    dre and hugh

  28. Jack came back after the music

    Dre wins!

    Jack we think that was awesome and can’t wait to hear it

    got something to say Mennennennennnennngay?

    he didn’t play his outro line

    Dre sez: we enjoyed round 1 or the 9″ smurfs

  29. From the list of smurf characters

    Hugh is:
    Painter Smurf is a brilliant artist and is active in most visual arts. He often wears a red jacket with a black tie, and is often seen either making a painting or a sculpture. In the cartoon, he speaks with a French accent and refers to his paintings as masterpizzas.

    wait.. there is another girl smurf:

    Sassette was created by the Smurflings to serve as a sister for Smurfette. Like Smurfette, Sassette was evil at first, as she was created using Gargamel’s original spell, but with a smurf-sized lump of magical blue clay. Papa Smurf used the same potion on her that he had used on Smurfette to make her a real Smurf. Sassette is a little freckled redhead girl with pigtails, and pink overalls. She calls Papa Smurf “Pappy” and Grandpa Smurf “Grandpy”. She has somewhat of a warm place in her heart for Gargamel since she was made by his spell, calls him “Pappy Gargamel,” and even goes to visit him despite Papa Smurf’s orders.

  30. and anohter one:

    Clockwork Smurfette Schtroumpfette Robot/Mecanique Cartoon
    Like Clockwork Smurf, Clockwork Smurfette is a wooden robot who was built by Handy Smurf. She was made to be the female companion of Clockwork Smurf. Like her male counterpart, Clockwork Smurfette is capable of feelings and morality.

  31. ooooo.. papa smurf had him a hottie!

    Nanny Smurf (a.k.a. Granny Smurf) Mémé Schtroumpf Comics + Cartoon Susan Blu
    An old flame of Grandpa Smurf’s, Nanny enters the cartoon series after being trapped inside a cursed castle for centuries. It is unclear if she is a naturally occurring female Smurf or if she was somehow created via sorcery like Smurfette and Sassette. She’s introduced in Season 8 of the series, and she owns a pet rabbit named Smoogle.

  32. a naturally occurring smurf?

    Do I want to know what that means?

    Smurfette and Sassette were created by sorcery, because of COURSE women can’t come from anything natural or good.


    Hugh sez: its only a cartoon babe. Give the computer back to me. BACK AWAY from the smurf wikipedia. NOW!

  33. there is a “feral” smurf

    Wild Smurf wears clothing made of leaves and he`s barefoot. He is feral and isn’t understood by the other Smurfs. He can communicate with animals and ask for their assistance. In the cartoon Christmas special, Papa Smurf says that it is Wild’s first Christmas, therefore he doesn’t understand it. He appears to be the same age as the rest of the Smurfs, which would be quite old compared to humans. It is presumed this must be the first time he’s been at the village during Christmas.

  34. ok. wait. Hold on. Everyone stop.

    Gutsy is a new Smurf character for the 2011 movie. He is described as ‘brave to a fault’ in the synopsis.

    the 2011 Smurf movie?
    Are you fucking kidding me? A smurf movie?

    Goodnight smurfs,

  35. I’m disappointed that there isn’t a brewer smurf or since it’s originally belgian, at least a monk smurf.

    oh and Mango Smurf sounds like a perfect name for a Jack Mangan coverband.

  36. Van: re: RLSH sounds like a nice idea, but i think i’ll skip the spandex for a suit.

    And please keep the card tricks to a minimum, I already owe the tumbleweeds 2 tons of water after the last poker game.

  37. goodnight/goodmorning deadpan i’m off to finish sleeping off the alcohol before my eye doctor’s appointment. Have a pleasant monday.

  38. I still don’t get how “this” is Monday.

    My workweek is done in 12 hours. As much as I love my job, I can’t wait to have a nice warm 3 days with my pillow.

  39. CP: Maybe Not — Cat Power
    We all do what we can
    So we can do just one more thing
    We can all be free
    Maybe not in words
    Maybe not with a look
    But with your mind

  40. BTW: You get the last laugh Essbee, local newspapers are on their final legs. For better or worse, their relevance to society has become almost non-existent.

    I suspect that you will continue to be gay looong after the guy who made that endorsement has had to look for an entirely new career.

  41. I know JOe, it’s a sad fact (the newspaper thing, not the me being “gay” thing). I love to hold and read a newspaper. I’m moving my paper $$ to a Denver Post subscription. I don’t know how I’ll be able to scan the police blotter now, though, to find out what the neighbors have been up to . . .

  42. It does!

    I have seriously been reading the Longmont police notes, though, to get the dirt on why the cops knocked on our door at 3 a.m. last Tuesday to interview us about an incident next door.

  43. Currently, I’m playing Bioshock 2. The more I play, the more I realize that it is a gigantic anti-Ayn Rand screed. Which is pretty interesting. I think quite a few gamers weren’t aware of that.

  44. “You can choose who your partner is. I think birth has an influence over it, like alcoholism and some other things, but I think that basically you have a choice,” Buck said.

    He also defended his handling of an alleged rape in 2005 that he declined to prosecute because he believed some of the details appeared to show the woman in question consented to the sexual encounter. Months later, he told the Greeley Tribune that “a jury could very well conclude that this is a case of buyer’s remorse.”
