Bagels and orange juice.
Goodnight :cream cheese:
Good Night, Sir!
Very formal NS, I hope you were wearing a tux or army fatigues…
Cargo pants are kind of like military BDUs… right?
Good enough to over through Egypt, so that should count for something.
I love this show! It took me a few years to realize that one of the actors is C. Thomas Howell. Wow! We all do age . . .
Number nine, number nine, number nine, number nine…
Dan, just so you know, the rest of the album is not bluesy.
You can now make your union civil with your favorite same-sex person. In Hawaii.
CP: Yesterday’s Democracy Now!
Very fun episode, Jack!
I am really enjoying Earbuddies.
CP: Hell — Tegan & Sara
I haven’t listened to the episode yet, but I apologize in advance for my rambling on. 🙂 I plan on getting all my earbud segments done this weekend.
Meh, you were just born a ramblin’ man Rhett. :cheerful:
Rhettro: I was swooning over your vocabulary this morning as I beautified for work.
*imagines an episode of just Rhettro and Van defining words*
Thank you, EssBee!
My first exposure to the term “Xenophobe”:
One never forgets their first Xenoprobe !
No we’re not ready for hell
Mine too, Jack. I loved me that game
If anyone here watches Sparticus, they know all about Xena probed. About twice an episode.
I quite liked the Atari Lynx version of Xenophobe.
Lo, yes. Teresa and I watched the entire first season and loved it. Jupiter’s cock, we loved it.
Looking forward to the second season.
I quite liked the Atari Lynx version of Xenophobe.
Still play it from time to time on an actual Lynx or hacked Wii.
The second season is playing right now on Netflix instant. WATCH IT!!!!!! Theres no excuse! Take hand and find cock!
Theres a name Ive not heard in a long time. A long time.
Maybe the Wonder Woman movie won’t be so bad (cough):
Yeah I saw that it was streaming on Netflix. Been busy. LOL Perhaps this weekend.
Any chance she’ll get Xena probed?
Sounds like a job for Bruce Campbell.
Shit, shit, shit. I’m on business travel again and forgot that it was :pan: day. I’ll have to download it tonight at the hotel and listen to it tomorrow.
Yah me too.
I could have listened last night while I was up having insomnia.
And I’m trying to find a decent podcast catcher for my phone since like.. it’s like a second appendage these days.
I’ve never texted so much in my life.
I’m a texting maniac.
As a matter of fact..
if you aren’t getting texts from me… you might be doing something wrong!
Or this http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=501658578444&set=a.411652213444.193260.16316563444&theater
New book? I assume you talk about it on pod?
Ah, I must be doing it wrong.
Then again, Sinister Dioscuri Dragon here, so I -must- be doing it wrong.
Not a full-length book, but a 30,000 word chapbook. I have not discussed it yet onpod, Nomad – – just because I wanted to be sure it was going to happen. This project has been in development limbo for years.
Yes. Yes she can.
“flavor of the area”
That’s terrifying, Jack.
Blooming heck Jack, a friend preordered that for me years ago, hopefully it will see the light of day.
Ribbed for your pleasure.
I read that as ribbled.
Crap. That black ice vid is terrifying.
“promoting safe sex”
Considering its impossible to get and erection after looking at her.. Id say its working!
I found french fries worthy of Jack.
Jack – In that case, I’m really happy for you. I’m assuming it must have been really frustrating to have a project in limbo for so long. April will be here shortly.
Chris at Pendragon says he’ll get his coat.
Is getting your coat a British-ism instead of a Vananamonde-ism?
I’m all for individual expression, but somethings are just ugly. Like the spike things on Gaga’s face.
Oh, wait, no, that’s Drum Cat!
The thing that bugs me about Lady Gag is that her “weirdness” doesn’t seem at all inspired. To me it seems very fake and contrived. Like she is being put together by a marketing team … sort of like “The Monkey’s” were.
Only, some of their music is still really listenable.
Maybe Neil Diamond should write her songs, like he did for the Monkees?
“Gaga. . . You’ll be a Woman Soon”
Ah, not the one that was pre-ordered, that was a collection of 3 (?) stories , on of them by Jack.
Triquorum that was it…
– Van, I’ll talk to Chris Teague about your pre-order.
– NS, they were pretty cool about everything. I haven’t exactly been the blitz writer, these past few years. . . .
– Cj, good french fries are a vice.
You know, if I’m sending a pm to any of you on facebook, which clearly states my proper name, I still want to sign off with Van or Vanamonde.
I’ll get my coat.
Well that’s a relief since I want to refer to you as Van on facebook.
I’m incapable of referring to Van as anything other than Van.
I’m also incapable of referring to Long Pan as anything other than Long Pan.
Also, I think it’s important to note that this may very well be one of the worst weeks in my lifetime as an adult.
I mean if you just add up the different things that have inundated me with suck this week. This is just simply not my week.
That suck now has to answer to me, Cj.
Here’s hoping that this truly WAS the worst week in your lifetime as an adult … and now that you have THAT out of the way, the rest will be cake. 🙂
Do you have a favorite flavor of cake?
How about a favorite song by Cake ?
I was going to post that I don’t really eat cake… I’d probably listen to cake..
but, I could totally scarf down an entire cheesecake right now…
Because yea.. then I’d go into a sugar coma and all feeling would be lost to me…
doesn’t sound so bad right now!
The cake is a lie!
But, I’m still alive…..
Well, this weekend doesn’t look promising. But, I do get paid for overtime, so I can reward myself somewhat later on.
However bad a day you’re having, at least you’re not this guy…
Some weeks the world seems full of Fail. Extra special wishes to all Deadpanites and friends out there tonight.
I have admit I find Red Panda less satisfying when magic is involved.
Red Panda is the proto-super hero radio drama? I keep forgetting to go check ’em out.
Just avoid the crispy won tons.
For Cj: CPIMM: The Distance by Cake
Van – I think of most people by their handle or a personal nickname. You would always be Van to me unless you specifically requested otherwise.
Froggin’ scatter shot tonight.
Van – I’ll check the “get my coat” vid when I get home. Can’t hear anything over the roar at work.
Jack – At least you are still writing. I essentially stopped about a year ago and haven’t been able to get anything longer than tweets down on a steady basis.
Scry – LEARN TO ENUNCIATE. Geez, stop the mummmmmmmbling!
I have to admit I felt myself nodding off as I tried to read this snorfest:
Blame Heinlen’s ‘Number of the Beast’ forkilling scifi….
When RP gets too magicky, I just wait around for Black Jack Justice…
Although the puppy POV was a bit much…
Hey Pan. Long weekend coming up. Woo Hoo!
We call our holiday Family Day. We’re encouraged to spend the day with our family. How silly is that?
Well Pan, I’m off to torture myself by going to see ‘Never Let Me Go’ at the cinema.
Yes I was that desperate to get out of the house for the evening.
Mad props to Justa Barry White, made me smile through the whole episode. Also, special thanks to Bunny for honoring my requests. 🙂
Next week is a bit ridiculous.
Monday is a holiday, Tuesday a dark day.
Thursday I’m taking a day off to watch the kids in the afternoon while my wife doesn’t something work related.
And rumor says that Friday will be another dark day.
I know, I’m complaining about not working. Silly. Except that weeks like this, where they laid off one shift already… make me really nervous about making it to 11 years.
Scry, what’s a “dark day”?
Good to know Rhett.
If my discomfort can’t make others smile, then what’s the point!
Special kudos (once again) to Jack whose comic genius with editing is as strong as his comic guinness is stout.
That’s tough NS.
The last corporate gig I had was like that for about 2 years. 2 years of wondering if you or your whole department was going to be suddenly “escorted out”.
I couldn’t adequately explain the level of stress that dark cloud puts on a person to anyone who hasn’t been through it.
I sending positive thoughts your way man.
Just turned on the TV to watch last night’s daily show. OMG the show that’s on the channel is tripping. It’s called Dirtgirlworld (seems to really be all one word). It’s an animated show bot the eyes and mouths on the characters are of real people on the animated creatures. Freaky looking
My boss messed up. She gave me figures for December instead of January. I think I’ll play two worlds II while I wait for the correct ones.
Like the Quiznos “We love the subs” guys?
Up since 4am with a vomiting child. Washed sheets, and he was keeping down some popsicle before I left for work.
Things are looking up!! I got a kick ASS parking spot :rock: :metal:
I put both because I don’t remember which is the right one.
Has Chevy Chase kicked the bucket?
CP: Anthem — Rush
No, I meant young Fletch, filling the barf-bucket.
Bunny – Dark days are when the plant management decides to close the entire plant rather than pay for people to come to work and not produce product.
Thankfully, the state has a program where, rather than lay people off for weeks to months at a time, the company can have pretty much random dark days and the workers get paid unemployment benefits for those days. I lose some money this way, but it’s better than the alternative.
I don’t know if other states, countries, provinces have a similiar program, but I am pretty sure it saved my job two years ago.
I’ve already removed my glasses, so I’m starting to drift off. That’s my excuse for the previous sentence, which was rather random.
justa J0e – Thanks. It’s a bit scary when the guy with seven years gets laid off. I’ve only got 10 years. And then they do dark days, randomly and suddenly decide to lay a shift off, madness.
Hooray for looking up.
Doesn’t that make it hard to hear then?
Star Trek The Animated Series is now online.
ctrl-alt-del triggered the spam filter?
Or did I forget to post the link?
Your cad link is freed, ditto. And I’m still here.
YOURE WELCOME. Im going to bleach my brain, now.
CP: Can We Go Wrong — Hesta Prynn
And OK, I’m off. sigh.
Well ‘Never Let Me Go’ was as depressing as the book.
Good luck in hell, Jackaroo.
Earbuddies sent. Woot! Yay Xenophobe!
San Diego w00t!
Friday nights from 3-6 PST are slow on DP. 🙁
Going to be a long and unquiet weekend. No holidays round these parts. But, I do at least get paid well for the extra hours.
Tangent – Though, I must confess, I’m having trouble narrowing down to which song I want to send for the earbuddies exchange. I may just have to collect four or five that I like and draw one out of a hat.
“We call our holiday Family Day. We’re encouraged to spend the day with our family. How silly is that?”
Yeah, that’s pretty silly. (Really? Somebody thought it was that important to have more synchronized holiday weekends with the US?)
I live in a mushroom.
coo coo kachew
That explains why you are a fun guy Rhettro.
Nice use of nin in that shadow vid.
Good night ::
Shdow vid: hawesome.
Shdow vid: hawesome.
Huh. I didn’t think I hit submit twice.
Now that Words with Friends is available on Android, is anyone up for a game or two?
I am “Nomad Scry” and I have not hit the max 20 ongoing games. Yet. Please help.
Don’t challenge Cj NS, she will crush you…
I’m with ya, Ed, workin’ the holiday weekend. Yesterday was a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG day, today will be just 10 hours – ugh!
I am in sunny San Diego, though . . . wait, it’s pouring and freezing. Damnit!
ZOMG, Lo, Tegan & Sara’s album “This Business of Art”!!!
Pouring and freezing in San Diego?
That is just uncalled for.
Though, if you’re working, I guess it doesn’t terribly matter too much what the weather is like.
Van – Well, somebody has got to do it. 🙂
“I am in”
Words with Friends.
Yep, it’s cloudy and cold here in some-ways-north-of-San-Diego.
How long are you in town for, EssBee? Can you make a 9pm live music show tonight here in Temecula? It’d be about an hour from San Diego, and we’d love to have you. Email me or send a message on Facebook for directions.
The family says you can stay the night up here if you want. We have a guest room. 🙂
I wish I could! I have a team dinner at 8 in San Diego.
I’m in town until Friday and am already exhausted. I hear there are 63,000 people in town this weekend. Not a table to be had in the city anywhere unless you made reservations Wednesday!
There was an Amy Bowen mentioned on Portlandia last night!
Aw, thanks! I would love to take you up on the guest room also, but my day ends around 10 tonight and starts again at 7 tomorrow morning.
You’re welcome! If you’re here until Friday, we may yet be able to plan a get-together either in San Diego or here. 🙂
The whole night sky:
Way cool, Van.
That was indeed a sweet little video.
Ess:!!!! “This Business of Art!!!!” You mean “This Business of Awesome!!!!”. Amirite?????
Hurdle Turtle goes free for the day on the app store:
Rhett, does that mean we’re going to get a 9 inch contribution from you?
(……. Just to be clear: I’m taking about Smurfs……..)
Giant trade between Blues and Avs… I guess Avs needed to do something.
Also. goodbye Craig Anderson. Hardly knew ye
*9 inch cough*
CW: Bar Karma E1
Van, are you stroking your mustache?
Well it’s a bit cheesey, but may turn out to be fun.
Bar Karma that is, I don’t have cheese crumbs in my virtual mustache.
…and then it pulls out a video game leads to violence..oh dear.
Well I’ll see what episode 3 brings to see if it’s worth continuing..not impressed with episode 2 at all.
Karma Bar episode 1 was okay up til the last few moments, where the episode was trying to wrap up and it just sort of … it felt off. Like the characters weren’t quite in character anymore.
And after clicking the link to watch episode 2 several times and being delivered one minute advertisements for Karma Bar instead, I’m no longer interested enough to try any longer.
I have Vanamonde and Cj games going in Words with Friends.
Any other takers?
:big cheesy grin:
Oh, and if Rhettro does make a nine inch contribution, I want to hear all about it.
In that case NS, you’ll have to buy his wife a drink or two..
I think I’m in for four inches of the 9″ Smurfs. Lots to record this week.
Ho ho ho:
Is anyone else having stupid Facebook stupid outage?
Appears to have been working for me ok today Jack.
Ugh. Well the dislike is mutual, Facebook.
Bunny should so be at this today: http://yfrog.com/gy2tpgmj
Bunny’s going to watch in on TV in warmth. :cheerful:
It’s on in an hour.
Plants Vs Zombies reference in the latest Supernatural..cool!
I’m actually enjoying the US version of Shameless, caught upto tonight.
Considering what happened to Soap, I wonder how long this series will last.
Forget that last line, my memory is about Soap is wrong..I just checked the wiki…
Was Soap originally a British TV show?
I get the joke, but I’m kinda glad I don’t fully get the joke:
Nope, and that is a good thing!
Really meant it was controversial at the time due to stuff it covered.
That reminds me:
$110,000,000 worth of players in today’s game. I think somebody’s over paid
“We have to remember that today is about painting the barn, not paining the castle”
5 on 3 for Calgary. They better score
Montreal’s goalie mask is freaky
What the hell are you talking about? River’s don’t go back and forth. They only flow in one direction. Stupid commentators.
Calgary scores a short-handed goal
The Swedish Chef’s favourite player just scored
Quite like this cover:
I’ll have to look at it when I’m on my computer, Van. It wants to only read half the link
Calgary wins 4-0
We now are in a play off spot at sixth place. *sticks tongue out at Lo Pan*. :tongue:
Re: Van’s Twitpic
That’s okay, I don’t really believe in Justin Bieber.
Surprisingly one-sided game. I blame the Habs’ goalie mask.
Van, that cover tune somehow reminded me of this one:
For all you calculator fiends:
I quite like Little Birdy as a band name.
You beer folk may be interested in this one. The podcast is a stock market one that I listen to, so they are talking bout business rather that brewing specifics. Still, the guy interviews the head dude of Dogfish Head Brewery in the 2/18 show.
Jump to about minute 25 in the file to catch the interview.
SPEAKING of beer …
It is bottling day for my Bock.
Must say I’m having motivational issues.
Oh well … of to wash and sterilize 38 bottles and caps and a bucket and a siphon hose and a big stirring spoon and I can’t remember what else and NOT just go back to bed like a really want to do.
Today I resolve to stop eating junk food.
Wish me luck.
Cj: Good luck
Good luck Cj.
Surround yourself with healthy munchies … this will help yu to shun the evil!
If you excuse me a moment, I need to do some math.
5 gallons = 768 ounces
12 20oz bottles = 240oz
this leaves = 528oz
12 16oz bottles = 192
This leaves 336 oz
So I would need 28 more 12 oz bottles.
okay. Math is over.
Math is sexy.
that makes the fact that I just found one more 20oz and 3 more 16s even better!
Okay so that’s another 68oz of capacity, so (336 – 68) / 12 = 22.33
So I only need to wash/sani 22 12oz bottles.
What I really need is some friends who would come over on a regular basis and help me drink these cases of beer that are sitting in my beer shelter … thus freeing up my stash of 20oz bottles.
Cleanser in the eye. meh.
Beer is sexy.
Cleanser eye for the beer guy?
I’m off again.
How about squeaky clean-eye balls?
I remember the miracle of modern technology and called my brewing buddy.
He is away, sailing in the Fla. Keys with his wife … but they stay in site of the shore and therefor … cell signals!
He told me where there are empty 20oz bottles stashed in his house.
Ah! A quest! I am off.
No more hugs ’til you give up drugs:
if you were me right now, you’d probably find just about anything sexy.
Being CJ is sexy.
So, I know I’m a little late to the party. Is it too late to make a 9″ smurf submission? Tomorrow that is, today I’m on holidays
^So they observe President’s Day in Canada? That’s good to know.
I plan on a little recording tonight for the 9″ Smurfs. Hopefully fortune will smile on me.
Oh yeah, good morning Pan
J0e, how would you know? you’ve never been me!
I’m betting that, yes, I just sent mine this weekend.
Besides.. we all know that Jack… he can do ANYYYYTHING….
(I haven’t swooned in a while … feels nice)
Rhett, Amy. Not everything we do is about The States.
Ours is a provincial holiday not a federal one. When it was brought in, it was thought that the time between new years and Easter was a long time to go without a break. It was decided to call this Family Day. In theory, although it died pretty quick, there were suppose to be event going on around the province the whole family could take part in
Yes, Pandora, I’m still listening.
No, Pandora, I’m not sending you 99 Cents. I will move to Grooveshark as needed.
I’m refusing to turn on my computer today. I’m reading, listening to podcast, and will watch a movie later today.
Deadpanning on my phone is the closest I’m going to get to computering
The weekend news – a shooting and two stabbings happened in three separate incidences (sp?)
I love this city
shootings and stabbings are NOT sexy.
Nomad Scry is whooping my ass at Scrabble.. fYi..
That must be a Clash of Scrabble Titans.
Yes, please feel free to contribute to the 9″Smurfs. Consider it an item on your “Bunny-do” list.
So here I am at a cafe in stupid frozen north AZ. I made the mistake of checking the social media, saw all of the Phoenix folks reveling in their beautiful day. :meh:
I’m not reveling. I’m sitting at my desk at work. Hope you are at least having some hot cocoa or tea?
Just had some good chai, yeah…. I will resist the urge to complain further.
Now off to the meeting.
Just heard myself say out loud, “Omygosh this guy’s avatar is as creepy as all get out.”
I’m not talking to anyone in general.. I just said it.
I feared that maybe the case when he used Glial in anger on my game with NS.
When people don’t respond to me, it makes me insane and angry.
Bunny: Oh, okay. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
CJ: Yes maim, what do you need maim?
I’m not understanding the “maim” thing.
Where are my posts?
This is a test.
However it’s not an apple.
I’ve been locked out of the :pan:
I saw your test Cj..
It must be Chrome that broke. It’s working in IE – shame on the :ftb: for that one! lol
Well I posted my test from Chrome.
Trying Chrome again…
CD: Arrogant Bastard Ale
You’re braver than I am Amy.
Rhettro: LOL! 😀 I kinda like it. It went well with the taco salad we had for dinner today.
The Oaked Arrogant Bastard is even better.
OK, you kids keep it down now.
CW: US Shameless eps 7
Frank trying to rob the old lady at the ATM..lol
You know, weeks like this past one make me most grateful for my college degree. I get to spend my weekends and evenings supporting a project from a computer at home instead of spending 16+ hour days chasing down unknown pieces of piping in the field like the designers have been doing.
Well ‘Paul’ was better than I was expecting, mildly amusing.
woody woody woo woo
I wonder if Chrome will work at work today.
I shan’t find out until after 10. This schedule is sooo not meant for me. I’m a morning person!!
Oh, snap, I forgot to put in my earrings. I better not leave the house just yet.
Oh, snap! I actually used the term “Oh, snap!”
Kill me now
Hurray, they’s fixing me! They’s really fixing me!!!!
So I’m in a coffee shop waiting for this guy to do a free concert:
Cj: Yea! Those things are never fun to go through. 🙂
There are times I really hate computers. One day, everything is working. The next, not at all with nary a hint as to why.
CP: Van Halen 3
I’m being reminded why I hardly ever listen to this album.
Looks like the Leafs organization finally realized you can’t build a team solely on trades, you have to have prospects.
CP: Love Struck Baby — Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble
[70s Steven Tyler] We’re baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack [/70s Steven Tyler]
Cj says “shan’t” and “oh snap!” this morning and is more concerned about the “oh snap!”?
What’s wrong with “shan’t” ??? :jack: ???
Someone in the office just said, “It puts the lotion on its skin” and that made me think of you guys.
How funny is that?
Why, did you want to borrow some lotion?
Van – If it’s any consolation, I don’t exactly remember what GLIAL means. I think it has something to do with the myelin sheath on nerve cells, but I’d have to look it up to be sure.
Cj – You are only 60 down, with 50 tiles left. That’s plenty of time for a rousing come-back. =)
No, I’m serious. One of the guys I used to play sucked the first half of the game and blew me away on the back half of every game. I had to rack up the points early because he was going to make 50+ moves at the end.
The Gadhafi speech made no damn sense. I would guess the CNN translator was bollocks, but the Aljazeera one seemed as insane.
Apparently he (Gadhafi) thinks that the protesters are A> on the pills and B> foreigners. Also, his clothes do not fit, just going by the number of times he had to put his hat back on, his shawl back on.
We saw The Fighter this past weekend, btw. Good biopic stuff. That Christian Bale can act. I’m not sure if Amy Adams can act, but she’s welcome to be in any movie, thank you.
Nomad, I understand that’s set in your part of Mass?
Libya, Wisconsin, Mass…. same thing.
Khadafi, Christian Bale, Republicans…
I watched Julie and Julia simply because Amy Adams was in it.
Send me an angel
Sent me an angel
Oops. My link was bad.
Do you want an obtuse or acute angel ?
I like acute things.
I’m kinda acute.
How about some acute angle food cake?
I’m trying to cut back.
My recent emotional baggage could turn in to ass baggage if I’m not careful about my eating habits.
For the record:
Ass Baggage will NOT be our band name. Will not even be an album title.
Tea Baggage on the other hand, just might.
Performing live onstage tonight only! T. Baggage and the Baggage Handlers!
That’d be nuts.
I suspect they’d be the house band at The Turtles Taint.

OMG, I just had the MOST amazing, super-yummy lunch!!!!!!!
*wonders if this is too far of a drive for Jack on a lunch break*
Jack – I had to look it up, but yeah, The Fighter is local. Lowell is less than 25 miles away from where I live.
I’ve only been here for a dozen years, so I’m not real familiar with the history of the area.

Pandora is a whiny 16 year old girl today.
CP: I Love You Always Forever – Donna Lewis
Is Debbie Gibson next?
I knew the answer to maybe 2 of these:
CP: Break Your Heart – Taio Cruz
That’s more like it.
Debbie Gibson was like, the first one I posted.

Damn that Taio Cruz
I knew the answer to 12 of those, and somewhat familiar with most of the rest.
And I don’t wanna fall to pieces
I just wanna sit and stare at you
I don’t wanna talk about it
And I don’t want a conversation
I just wanna cry in front of you.
I don’t wanna talk about

— Avril Lavigne – Fall to Pieces
CW: Latest House
Wondering if Hugh Laurie is now trying to sabotage the show so he can go home..
I forget … is it ok to switch from scotch to rum ?
Ack – the battery that Apple gave me to replace the swollen battery in my Macbook … has swollen up massively!
Perhaps my power is just to exciting.
Well, as though Amazon Prime weren’t already cool enough with included two day shipping, now they’ve included access to about 5000 titles in their Video On Demand library.
Much of it is television series episodes that I see so far. And, much of that is actually BBC in orgin. I expect it will grow, but it’s a nice start. The new Blu-ray player that I picked up a month ago has Amazon as one of the built in sources that it will stream.
A bit of Fry and Laury, Black Adder, Dr. Who (recent series as well as some “classic” series), Robin Hood, Red Dwarf, several seasons of Top Gear, Primeval, Torchwood.
There also look like a number of PBS shows and series. Farscape is on as well.
Some I’ve seen, much I’ve meant to see. Probably not enough to get someone into Amazon Prime if they dont’ already see the value in it, but a nice addon at this point.
Oh Mr. Belfry, your battery is so swollen.
Runaway – featuring Gene Simmons.
Is that a palooza candidate?
All three of the “The Girl who….” movies
A Clockwork Orange
The Human Centipede
Enter the Dragon
and, no, I’m not putting in every movie in the library, just the ones that strike me (ow!)
I thought we needed a flashback –

Jesus Camp, featuring Ted Haggard?
but Ed, Enter the Dragon strikes you so quickly how would you know it was the one?
Betta to Enta the Dlagon my son –
then to have Dlagon enta you!
“no, I’m not putting in ”
