Am I missing something or is the show posted time not displayed any more?
I can probably get that info to display again, Van.
But not tonight.
That would be cool, thanks in advance.
Next time, on a very special Friday edition of the Deadpan…..
What, those crazy kids across the pond got married in the middle of the night? Let me guess, they decided to go off and elope somewhere….
The weatherman says more snow today. Gee.
*sigh* Have to work this weekend. Stupid month end.
So the person on the news has been asking everybody he talks to if they shed a tear during the wedding. I don’t cry at weddings of people I know, why would I cry at a wedding I slept through?
Paul, I’ve met Mel Gilden. He’s a very nice person.
Well, the snow has started.
Actually this isn’t that unusual for spring weather in Calgary, it just that it’s been an unusually cold and snowy winter that I think everybody is tired of it.
this whiner just seams like it won’t end. we don’t have forecast but it will be cold and crappy over the weekend here
Oh.. oh reaps I know thats a typo but its the funniest thing Ive read all morning
I aim to please! yes very typo. My fingers don’t move very well when it is cold in my cube and it seams when we get that rare day above 50 outside the AC kicks on and I forgot to being a warmer cloak.
More CCH hell hell hell today.
Inspired episode today, Jack!
Out of curiosity, if no one picked Philly, how did a song get picked? I think if I sing, Lo needs to sing something for losing too. 😉
ditto, Lo’s team actually won that’s why he doesn’t have to sing.
As for non-assigned songs, Jack picked them.
The weather was bad, bleak but beautiful.
When you live on a crowded isle, bad weather is one way of getting some peace and quiet..
For some strange reason, everybody seems to go to the mall whenever the weather turns terrible here.
Fell off my chair.
Just fell off my chair.
I like the Kitty Saves picture.
I have a giant thirst.
I have giant….uh… big gulp.
I do not understand why USers give two hoots about this royal wedding. There must be other European monarchies with princes and princesses marrying, and I don’t remember anyone at work freaking out over those weddings.
God BLESS you sir. Its literally made me angry all day.
Just think, we’ve got years of rumored infidelities to look forward to, while watching the young prince’s nose grow.
Was that too mean spirited? Maybe.
Perhaps…but didnt she look FAB in that hat dress thing?
Check isn’t in Kansas anymore. Or Alabama for that matter.
FUN FUN FUN FUN
This can’t be real.
Oh those crazy Nigerian astronauts
Dang, all this royal wedding coverage is keeping me from keeping up on Charlie Sheen. Priorities people!
CP: St. Teresa — Joan Osborne
My favorite song on that album.
For me it’s Crazy Baby. No other Joan Osborne song tops this for me.
Crap is he still around???
FUN FUN FUN FUN
^ Charlie that is. Not Joan. Shes hot.
^Just noticed that he started a charity. CNN still gave him front page status!
Well, even it he could, it would probably be forged. It’s going to take a lot more than some faked piece of paper to convince me.
Judging from twitter posts, Joanna Russ has died, must admit I’ve only heard about her in relation to other authors (PKD being frightened of her after a death threat) and haven’t got round to reading any of her fiction.
This is a test of my new iPad. This is only a test. If it were the real thing I’d beep in your ear really loud
Oh yeah. BEEEEEEP!
Wifi or 3G?
At least you can test facetime yourself now.
I would have rang, but probably would just get your iphone..
WiFi only. Maybe test face time next week. Expect hubby Home any minute now so don’t really have time to play. Besides, I hear the phone camera is better than the iPads
Maybe I’ll set up a testing time next week.
Although, I suppose I can always contact myself (on the iPhone) to test but seeing you is more fun 😉
CP: Strange Neighborhood — Dedicated to Dedications
There, set up the FaceTime. On the iPad apple makes you use your email for FaceTime and, because apple is stupid, I had to use the old one. *grumble, grumble. Stupid apple*
woot for new electronic toy toys! I still look forward to the day when I can upgrade my handheld Coleco football game.
The Roger Ebert TED talk is simultaneously heartbreaking and eerie.
The bit at the end is pretty moving.
A much cheaper way to purchase all 28 volumes of Lone Wolf and Cub.
I’m left speechless….
Wow. Yeah thats too much of a good thing(s)

Has anyone seen Kat Denning’s nude photos yet?
Yikes. Thats… thats pants tightening.
Are you sure they haven’t just pasted her head on a model’s body?
Say Hi from me the next time you dock with her.
Operation Wow goes free for the day:
Basically it’s an Operation Wolf clone, a good one at that. Oh and the HD version for iPad owners is also free.
I’m sitting here at my daughter’s school carnival. There is a dude dressed as jack sparrow. At least 10 girls are circling him. LOL
I feel dirty…
10 years ago it would have been a guy dressed as the crow.
The jack sparrow effect is confirmed.
“The King’s Speech” – most excellent piece of film making. Finally got to see it tonight.
Of course, Geoffrey Rush could probably stand in front of a camera reading Obama’s birth certificate and make it something brilliant, but still.
Been watching the “Standing in the Shadow of Motown” docu. Pretty fascinating story of the less glamorous musicians who made the Motown sound. I’d kinda thought this was more about James Jamerson, the greatest bassist of all time, but it’s still pretty good stuff.
Discovering Joanna Russ:

Oh my god, I’m not in Texas anymore. How’s yous?

You aint seen nothin yet…
Well Pan off to see this movie:
..and it only took two years to cross the channel..sheeesh.
CD: Fentiman’s ginger beer (non alcoholic)
Finally finished this week’s Deadpan. Between work being really busy and me catching my daughter’s cold, I haven’t had much too say this last week, but on having listened to 203 I need to thank Jack for doing Detroit proud. 🙂 Also, excellent job by Paul getting Paul & Storm and JC to do the bumper. And great song at the end Jack.
Well that was a fascinating film, surprised they didn’t actually include the messier details of Vetrov’s life though:
The misread was included but not the stabbing.
Mistress rather than misread
Same thing. Think about it
CP: The Kills discography

was just playing here.
Looking back at Van’s first comment of the week, are Brits allowed to say wahoo?
It’s you pesky Merkins contaminating my vocabulary..
Wow, a very quiet Saturday for the Deadpan, if this keeps up I may be tempted into another drunken movie commentary.
I vote yea, LR.
Well you asked for it Jack.
So the movie for tonight(really early morning) is “Final Days of Planet Earth” starring Daryl Hannah. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0478073/
In more important news apparently there is a Kill Bill Vol. 3 planned for 2014 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1521225/ !!!? really mixed feelings about that.
So lets get part 1 started, thats right not only is it a made for tv movie, it’s a two parter.
Opening with scenic time lapse video of planet earth and music that a cross between ominous and trance…
And it cuts from scenes of a city, presumably San Fran, to eggs on an assembly line.
Movie must be sponsored by Egg Farmers of America
Now on to the moon.
How can a guy who is weightless plan on just dropping down to check on broken equipment on the surface?
Weightless flirting with Daryl Hannah, I want a ticket on that space ship.
Everybody is gone, this can’t be good. And now there are alarms to make sure the audience doesn’t miss the danger.
There are alarms and the first place you check is the airlock and not the cockpit, not a smart mission commander.
and now random nowhere on earth
And another scene change, another character. Is this finally our world saving hero archeologist?
What a cheery story for the 3rd graders, the professor needs to learn how to recruit em when their young versus when they’re older
Uhoh ominous music again.
Good looking pest exterminator, likes to lecture on the benefits of insects.
For an entomologist who admires insects, needs to read some philosophy of government. And maybe realize why people aren’t bugs.
Oh looky it’s a teenage dumbass jumping the fence at the digsite. This will end well.
Yeah, I still trust the Tarantino, but I’m going to vote ‘No’ on Kill Bill 3.
Pretty much my reaction Jack.
He jumped the fence to put a bra on the figurehead of an excavated ship…
I didn’t realize he was too dumb to realize he is suuposed to be taking bras off of girls, not putting them back on.
And not only is he more excited with the bra on, now he’s lighting a cigarette.
Apparently the SF gods were offended by the bra he chose so the earth swallowed him.
And the proff looks a little too happy about it.
uhoh somebody is following the professor.
If the random worker is supposed to be searching here, why is he looking around before going through the door?
Hey looky it’s the madagascar cockroach, the tv star of roaches.
ooo, scary mounds in neat rows and columns.
Take a sample, hear a scary noise. Like we didn’t already know he was going to die.
And now he screams from off camera.
Oooh, our exterminating entomologist from earlier is the aunt of a kid the archeologist scared, says she is mad at him but she doesn’t sound that mad.
And now we are assured she is the female lead.
Yeah, the old guy in the trench coat is hiding alot. Oh hey, it’s Daryl Hannah again although instead of being an astronaut she is a public servant.
Prof lives on a boat, and the mysterious follower is waiting for him. Apparently mystery guy is a reporter following a conspiracy.
The prof has 2 numbers now, I’d call the blond personally.
Oh hey, it’s the tunnel the worker died in and the prof knows where it is, and wants to go for a look see.
I’m betting a shot that he finds the worker half eaten, but doesn’t learn the actual plot yet.
and there’s the underground mounds, apparently the bleed green glowy goo. Bonus it;s flamable.
Why does he exit from a dran cover and not the way he came in.
Todays lesson: Don’t light a match near mysterious mounds that have flammable gas.
Oh looks ait’s a super sleezy, and incompetent, used car salesman I hope he dies soon.
Well I guess I need to do a shot.
Hmm, I wonder if the map and its age is important.
Oh looky it’s the conspiracy reporter again
Prof says the mounds were a fungus, how would he know?
Apparently they know Liz “Daryl Hannah” was an astronaut.
Ooo, candle mood lighting for his meeting with Liz
Dude, what do you mean another time? idiot
Looky convulsions and screaming with guys in hazmat suits.
Lookd like the commander from the moon mission, and yuck.
Uhoh birdies are gone.
Oh hey, new girl’s husband is missing. I’m thinking he was the worker earlier.
And now back to the exterminologist.
And the local boss looks mad that she is there.
Hmm, I’m suspicious of the new contact he offered.
Why is an astronaut at a hospital in SanFran instead of Texas, or Florida.
Do we really need to know it’s a flash drive and not a disk?
And the prof is a Luddite with computers.
Sleezy car dealer isn’t dead yet damnit.
conversation loaded with import between the commissioner and Liz.
Bird guy is bugging city hall and the commissioner is interested.
How many people are going to crash at this ombudsman’s office?
ooh, the ombudsman’s office is room 86 and now the ominous strings are teasing at convergence.
Yeah.. she is calling ahead to “help” him.
apparently they save power by turning off half the lights outside this office.
Hmm, bug lady has card with same message as bird guy got from the commissioner.
Random business guy has same note, and now onto bird guy.
I guess the proff is getting the message.
At least the bug lady is getting some better lines.
Well I was wrong again, lady with missing husband is finally there, and apparently he was the janitor.
Through the door and down the stairs to he ombudsman we go.
Damn even less lighting down here.
brightly lit airlock, and through the windows are cellophane wrapped people…
why do the hazmat suits have mirror screens on the gas masks. And now the shit is hitting the fan.
Fighting with the suits, and why are the trigger happy police surprised by the cleaning procedure in the airlock.
And salesman it;s a heavy door what do the police have that can break through it?
human disposal goes to the tunnels of funky mounds.
At least the prof learned not to light a match this time.
Damn, I was hoping the salesman would be dead by now.
Bad idea to warn the blond.
Oh look, the reporter found the tunnels and the end of the human disposal.
And now we get to see a full grown bug kill the reporter.
And at the end of part 1 Daryl Hannah’s reflection isn’t as pretty as she is, big surprise considering the cover art.
And now since it is way past my bedtime, I’m off to sleep.
Let me know if you want me to do a commentary for part 2.
Ugh, I am so not looking forward to all the internet/podcast references this week to that stupid “1st of May” song. I wonder how many times I’ll have to skip past it.
It is 36F this morning. Ain’t no one First of May’ing around here.
We are very very very unlikely to all die next year.
Does anybody know if his show actually continued? I remember all the talk about the first show, which I enjoyed, but never could find the rest of the series. I may need to go do some digging through the guide listings.
Well Thor was as enjoyable on a second viewing..the sacrifice an Uncle must make when a nephew comes visiting.
Emerging trends in young adult fiction:
Dystopian has been really popular in YA for a while, so I don’t think that’s an emerging trend: that’s being a teenager. 😉
Some of those titles look pretty interesting. thanks.
I wonder if the middle grade Percy Jackson series is the jump starter for the Greek Mythos retellings?
Long tradition of fantasy set with old gods still hanging around..The second Dirk Gently book (with Norse Gods) pre-dates the PJ series by a long way.
Windy and gray here today.
I was gone all day yesterday because I was volunteering at a community event called Taste of Temecula Valley. Almost four hours of serving pulled pork and spicy chicken sandwiches. I was under a white canvas tent for most of the time and I still have a sunburn. It was totally worth it, though. I had a lot of fun and made a new friend. 🙂
Woot for the LR movie PBP. I’m gals to not be the only one that does it :cheerful:
Ozone goes free:
It had actually slipped my mind, Ed, until you mentioned it. Google has a pretty neat logo thing today (And it has nothing to do with the Jonathan Coulton song).
Really? I could have swore there was a dark sharpie in that image.
How…the…FUCK are these Fast and Furious films pulling off these record numbers? Jesus
scantily clad women and big explosions. Plus none of that pesky acting talent or plot to get in the way.
Oh… yeah thats it.
I have survived another birthday party for one of my kids. Having their birthday’s two weeks apart makes for a hectic month, but at least we’re done with birthdays for the year now.
Interesting – news is hitting now that Bin Laden is dead. I find myself surprisingly unmoved. We’ll see if it sinks in tomorrow….or if it actually changes anything, for that matter.
Yeah. I really feel I should care more.
Same exact situation here, Ed (a la birthday parties). My girl had a really fun one today, I think.
Happy birthday to the little deadpanites.
I think I’ll go ahead and pbp part 2 of the movie tonight. Thinking about playing a plot prediction drinking game.
Speaking of Fast & Furious: Apologies if you’d held out any hope for the next Terminator movie….
Wow! They really gave up on the franchise, didnt they?
Alright dishes and other cleanup is done lets start the movie, again.
You know I think the title music for Torchwood has more of an spooky odd feel than the title music for this movie.
Ah another sunny day in california. Looks like Liz is fresh out of the shower and ready to get dirty.
Bastard ran out on her, at least he left a note.
Luckily he didn’t tell her where the hideout is.
Uhoh, looks like the police are in on it. Patrolman just ganked a homeless guy in an alley.
So who is in charge, the commish or Lizzy with the buggy reflection.
Brilliant salesman called FBI on his cell, and he got city hall. Not much of a surprise there.
Commish is kinda slow if he is just now getting to the processing room.
Hah, Russian complaining about US coverups.
Well at least they’re smart enough to use Google. Although I wonder how can a coverup work so well in the city but they really think they’ll find the guy hidden away by using then net.
And now we have two of the enemy talking and complaining about how their society is changing on earth. Sounds like some bugs are more equal than others.
Lotta pressure to produce for the bugs, kinda interesting.
Oh yeah I’m betting that google works to find the missing lunar commander, but they also get found.
Finally revealed that Daryl Hannah is the queen bug, I’m shocked I say shocked.
And now the internet provides exposition back story.
Queeny is not happy. Yep she is in charge.
Ohh burn. queen rejected the commish.
Yep they got the info, but the police missed em.
Guess I owe half a shot.
Prof wants to go talk to queeny again, at least our exterminator is getting suspicious.
Hey they’re smart enough to get guns, will they get caught?
Dumbass prof still going to try and talk to queeny. Betting a shot he finally realizes she’s a bad guy.
Going back up the downslide to get into city hall, with ominous music.
Damn false alarm.
And now they got the guns.
bit of character back story while we wait.
I don’t think wifey is ready to let go, this bodes ill for the future.
and now we get the reveal for the prof.
“To fail is human, to win is bug.”
comeon queeny kill at least a couple of them.
Couple of hours to save the earth.
Yay she killed the commish! Too bad he ruined her makeup though…
and finally the prof gets it. I like his subtle use of expression I can barely tell he is surprised with his eyes only slightly wider.
Queeny fixed her makeup fast.
wait a minute I thought the commish was dead, guess it was another bug.
And of course he walks right by and out the building.
Info dump for the others.
Haha! dumbass salesman got knives instead if guns. And now they will get caught b/c they went shopping. betting a shot
When you need to get by a bunch of bugs be sure you use an exterminators van to drive around.
Well group 2 made it out of the grocery store, but they were made by a cop.
Yay for insects trancing from smoke. Lets you walk wherever you want.
So far so easy.
Well the commander recovered fast.
and now for the crazy debrief apparently the bugs were chatty around him.
ooh, the commander can’t be taken over. he is buggy cryptonite apparently.
This is what happens when you get all your shots.
wait cats eye nebula? you said the horsehead nebula earlier.
commander’s brain is more than a little broken now.
Oh hey group 2 is still alive and back to the hideout.
oh hey the police followed to the hideout, big surprise. Time for the chase scene.
In a van…
guess it was time to use their brains they got a guy to be a decoy.
Take public transportation and you take your life in your hands.
bug hubby got on the bus, and now he’s dead. On the upside apparently the commander’s touch causes the bugs to melt. Betting a shot it’s b/c of where he grew up.
And the whiny salesman is still alive damnit.
And I missed it – Is Darryl Hannah in this one too?
I think so since it is part 2.
that’s alot of bugs
woohoo! queeny liz finally killed the comish. Bout time they started killing off more of this cast.
Whiny salesman runs, whiny salesman gets caught by bugs.
Eat him queeny! Eat him!
DAMNIT! she didn’t kill him.
Best line so far
“they’re just bugs, they put their humans on one leg at a time.”
getting to the hive and everything is finally coming together
the bugs are naked!
Whiney salesman just became a bug host
NONO! splitting up is bad crazy commander.
yeah that’s smart, chat away at full volume a you sneak through the tunnels
oh looky they found the nest, and queeny was waiting.
female banter, almost entertaining. Buffy was better at it.
queeny is calling for bug reinforcements using buggy wifi.
“humans are a source of keratin”
you couldn’t find a better source?
and apparently humans are considered an evolutionary oddity.
looks like commander is going to sacrifice himself.
better run faster, the tunnels are filled with explosive gas after all.
well San Fran has a bunch of toasted bugs now. I wonder what would be the best beer to drink with them.
and now they split up.
bug lady is giving up extermination but not her degree.
Oh goody they aren’t completely splitting up…
And credit time. Finally.
Since we never learned why the lunar commander was bug cryptonite I guess I need to do a shot to finish tonight.
And now to watch something that’s actually entertaining, Babylon 5.
I hope ya’ll enjoyed my play by play, at least more than silence. If you have suggestions/requests for the future feel free to tell me.
“Well as my great-grandfather used to say, cool”
LR – Was Darryl Hannah in this one too?
Clarification: tonight’s pbp was part 2 of “Final Days of Planet Earth”, so yes Daryl Hannah was in it, as Liz aka queen bug, aka only actor/actress capable of expressing more than one emotion.
Unfortunately Daryl Hannah was never on Babylon 5, one of the few deficiencies of the series.
From mermaid to bug queen…. that is an actress with quite a bit of range…
Thank you for filling up the dead air, LR! Your PBP is far preferable to infomercials.
Don’t forget she was also a bitchen’ assassin/ninja

Yeah the best you’ll probably get is BeerAdvocate.com
Also, beer metaphor FTW!!!!^

Ok Deadpan. You know you want it! It’s movie time!
Today’s movie will be narrated on the iPad for the first time. So please be patient if I go slow
Especially since I have a kitty on my lap getting in the way of the iPad
Today’s movie is called Cyclops
The dvr write up: a brave general takes on the menace of a Cyclopes at behest of a corrupt roman emperor
I already know it contains the trio needed for a perfect B horror – violence, coarse language, and nudity.
In the deep, dark forest…
Wow, this movie’s off to a good start. We’ve had two deaths already
Meanwhile, in the roman senate…
You know, I’ve seen this guyin mor b movies. It’s amazing
Pop. We’ve jumped to the roman whore house
Wow, the acting is… Amazing
Invitation to a discourse in the art of love
On the road to a cyclopes
Time for the bathroom maneuver. Theyre going to flush him out
There goes an entire roman legion
Wow those archers are terrible
Oh, he’s downright giddy
Sex, sex, sex
6 Montserrat and 20,000 denaris over budget? That’s amazing.
Montserrat? Stupid autocorrect. I meant months
Branding the slave boy
Marcus has failed… No wait, no he didn’t
Why doesnt he just remove the blindfold?
As reward for capturing the cyclone I give you… Nothing
Don’t tease thecyclopse
Oh, the carnage!
Starve him for the ring
Barbara the slave rubbing higher
I don’t think he’s into this
How stupid is that?
Drinking, gambling and death. Always a good combination
That Cyclopes,always looking to get a head
Wow what a growl. Oh wait, that’s the recycling truck outside
Whipping the Cyclopes means death
Ewes. That’s not what keys are for
Ah yes, auto correct is always fun
I Stand by my statement on how bad the archers are
He’s still alive
Capture the slaves!
How to instill loyalty
These slaves are useless
I take that back. The guards are even more useless
This poor soldir just can’t catch a break
The typos are even more entertaining on the iPad, Bunny.
That’s a choice?
Training for the arena
Barbara the whore
The Cyclopes eats his guards if not fed
Look at the funny slaves
That’s one way to use a shield
Barbara means savage and uncivilized. Who knew
It’s a toy shield
Ow. Why didn’t that hurt?
Freedom for the winning gladiator
Plots within plots
Yeah, you tell them Marcus
He can talk
Boy he has a voracious appetite
I can’t believe someone named thrie child Flavia
Marcus for Caesar?
Feeling for the cyclopes
The forum is buzzing
Why is ther a bird in a cage there?
The final day
Gordian. I love these names
Marcus vs. The cyclopes
Barbara the barbarian
The peasants are revolting.
Maybe ey should bathe more
Call the city cohorts!
Barbara the barbarian is kicking some butt
And the emperor dies
The beast is dead!
No, the beast lives… But not for long
This ending is very… Yeah
Long live the republic!
I’ve gotta go get my car
BTW, before I go. Despite the disclaimer, I didn’t hear any cursing, and a side shot of a breast, once, is not nudity
The cyclops had to have looked better than the one in Krull.
Actually, the cg Cyclopes was not that bad
And btw, Happy Birthday, Van!
OK, back to the salt mines.

No huzzah for that. Definitely feel better, Cj.
Please remember (and I know this from experience) when life gives you lemons, shove them in people’s eyes.
Scratch the peel with your nails first. That’ll active the juices and make it that much more devastating when you grind them into someone’s eyes.
I hope you feel better CJ. Everyone feels depressed at some points in their life, but it always improves eventually.
CD: Full Sail Imperial Porter. Much better than the dreck I suffered thru last night.
Oh, and happy belated birthday Van!
Ooops, I missed that earlier.
Happy bday Van!
Getting caught up – Happy Birthday, Van!
And, finally caught up – Extra marshmallow hugs for you, CJ. Whatever it is, it will pass.
Beer of the night: North Coast’s Le Merle
So far the best american saison I’ve found. Saison Dupont would be the only one that beats it.
:hugs: to Cj.
Good night, Pan.
Been helping my sister whose house was hit by a tornado.
She is fine. Was at work at the time. Rescued her dog and over a period of 3 days, finally found her cats.
Just got power/internet back yesterday.
Interesting times – no power for 6 days and for the first few days, very limited phone or texting available. Pretty much cut off from the noise of the world. Just people banding together to help people.
I’ll check back in later and will try to post photos.
Fucking hell JJ… glad shes ok.
Agreed. Keep us posted.
What he said.
WTF? Australian neo-nazis are going to protest the Canadian punk band Propagandhi?
Thats kinda… well I suppose fitting. Unfortunately.
Holy crap. These are pencil sketches!
Not looking good for Washington in the playoffs. Their poor performance just reinforces my opinion that they are overhyped, especially Ovechkin.
SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP!
Ah, that’s right. You picked Washington. Well, there *was* hope. 😉
You’ve gotta love the Japanese word for “shut up”: urusai! It just rolls off the tongue. 🙂
URUSAI! URUSAI! URUSAI KUJO-KUN!!!!!!
Much better than the Swahili version of shut up, kafungia.
Happy Star Wars Day! And now for more Lucas ass-fucking:
On the bright side: I totally forgot about May the Fourth until you reminded me. Thanks! 🙂
CP: Pain (feat. Iggy Pop) — Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse
I have a great idea for my theme song rendition, but I need to get some stuff first.
And I know what to do with my first “recommends” segment. I just need to write it.
^Read this as “I know what to do with my fist…”
Ooooh…the poor girl
*double rim shot*
ditto, if your first recommendation is going to be The Hulk, then I sure hope it’s going to be the Lou Ferigno Hulk.
Annnd here’s my May the Fourth link of the day:
Whatcha gonna do!? When brakka-mania runs over you!
Snap into it!
Poly Styrene passed away last week?
Scalzi rates the upcoming genre films:
I pretty much agree with him, but I think Priest might be a lot of fun.
He gives Captain America a “meh”?? I give that a “boo”.
Also Im quite looking forward to the Conan film.
I confess that I’d be really pleased to see a good Conan movie.
I agree. I just don’t think we’ll get one.
Thor already has good reviews, but I wait for rental. In fact, I probably wait for rental on all of those flicks. Upon seeing the trailer for GL I’m happy that they just “went for it.” GL is properly set in an outer space environment and is not ashamed of the source material. Unlike FF2 where Galactus became a bad storm. =P
CP: In My Dreams (ur txting me) — Bellvue’s Finest
This sob was for the meatcard
here is an aerial photo I found of my sisters neighborhood. 2 people died there.
Incredible picture, J0e. While that’s devastating for your sister, I’m glad you still have a sister.
^what Jack said.
3am and I should be in bed.
Going to have to give up on Portal 2 for the night.
GOT gets renewed for S2:
I have this song stuck in my head now.
