the cake is a lie
This cake is true.
ZP takes a butchers at Portal 2:
Feel free to post your own Broken Lyrics scores here. I’m off to work.
It would have been brilliant if they had been able to work that line into the show….though, it wouldn’t surprise me if they did and I just didn’t catch it.
How are we this fine sunny morning?
Show notes are going to be a little late today, Jack. I’m taking my car in in about 20 minutes to remove the snow tires.
Spring is finally in the air…
Crap Joke Alert:
Sam & Joe are in a pub when a woman starts chokin on her food. As she starts to go blue in the face Sam rushes over an goes behind her, whips her skirt up, pulls her knickers down & runs his tongue up and down between the cheeks of her arse ! The horrified woman gasps & spits the food across the room. Joe says well done Sam. I’ve heard of the hind lick manoeuvre but thats the 1st time ive seen it done!!
A Earth shattering groan wil suffice.
Suffice to say the groan is still gaining force.
On a different note, comments for April 2011 totaled 2,343. This was down from the same period last year
On yet another note, I won’t be able to get at my hockey recording until next week Jack.
Jack: I commiserate with you. I got none of the lyrics either.
Butterfly in the sky…
ditto – That stuck-in-your-head song, what is that from?
It’s the closing credits song from one of the new anime this season. It has a long title, but people have shortened it to Ano Hana. From what I can tell, it’s a cover of a 10 year old song, but I like this version better. It’s also sung by the 3 voice actresses from the anime.
Bah!!! I keep forgetting to watch Battle Girls.
I like the OP & ED from that show too.
Oiy. That is a really long name. Not available on CR (yet.)
But that reminded me that I wanted to check out Gosick. Yay.
Hugo Weaving! Man of 1000 faces. But one voice. Unless you’ve seen Pricilla Queen of the Desert.
I did pick up an earworm out of the Broken Lyrics, so far a not unpleasant one.
Paul Maki: you actually pronounced everything correctly, or as correctly as I know the names.
In the future all the game shows will be replaced by reality tv shows. This future being 2012.
I don’t watch any “reality” shows. I have enough problems dealing with my own reality let alone anyone else’s
I like Biggest Loser, and The Voice looks good so far, but that’s it for reality shows for me.
Are there minstrels in a period Miami Vice story?
Yes, but we were forced to eat them.
Well that seems a perfectly normal reaction:
This thread = win. 😆
I did not realize Rose McGowan is in the new Conan. Kinda sexy, still kinda melty.
As far as Manson ex’s go, I’m strangly attracted to Evan Rachel Wood.
Theres no “strange” about it…
Crap… may not be SFW^
And there was much rejoicing
RE: Rose McGowan:
was probably the highlight of Planet Terror.
Her boobs were the highlight of The Doom Generation
But nobody beats Shannon Doherty.
‘Cuz she beats them first.
I was JUST gonna say that!!
That’s cuz we’re psychic wonder twins. Heh.
I dont wanna see our “forms”…
Man. I’m way too late on this one, cuz I had the same reaction! lol

No ones proved that yet
Last night I realised that my nephew is very much a clone of me. The rather beautiful waitress at the restaurant was flirting with him and he didn’t have a clue..
Oh yous guys…
*Price is Right loser theme*
But you know when I’M flirting with you, right?
And he wouldn’t have known what to do even if he had noticed? Yeah, poor kid. (Sounds rather familiar…)
I bought the company!
*wa wa wa*
It seemed neater.
Ah womens and their secret codes. It’s a rare event when one breaks ranks and let’s you know what some of the hand signals are, but the intelligence is good when it happens.

I think I’ll respond to everything using my Rise Against voice:

Sounds like the problem may be that you’re looking for women in submarines.
Submersibles & women?
Now where could my mind be going with that one?
What’s a submersible without sea men?
Dry docked, yeah I know.
Torpedo in the water!
Red Five standing by!
Gold 5: “It came from… behind!”
Are we talking Red 5 or Red October here? Or women? Or Spongebob? Or Enigma? I’m utterly confused now.
Sade. De Mois.
I am saddened and amused that I understand the Enigma joke.

OK, the Conan movie will be terrible.
Oh I disagree. It looks like fun. Course I said that about LXG too…
What would J Leno do?
Get his competition fired?
Wear cute motorized bunny ears that respond to his mood?
Long silences make my bunny ears go flat.
Sorry Jack I was busy drinking a liter of Optimator.
Well finished Portal 2…yah!
So do you agree with ZP Van?
I’ll sleep on that and tell you in the morning LR.
Hi Boys and Girls!
Miss yous guys.
Essbee why aren’t you on pintly yet?
So it’s just me, my beer(s), and an empty deadpan bar tonight.
Oh yeah, and everyone at the real bar I’m attonight, but they don’t know the way.
… and Essbee too!
Monsier Joe! Top of the evening to you.
CD: coffee, because I need to be sober up damnit.
To be clear I resent the fact me body needs time to sober up, not the needtosober up before driving.
Took a night to just relax. Went to a Cynco De May get together and had good food and Margareta.
life is good for the moment.
I was actually a proud papa tonight, taking my kids to receive awards. 🙂
Grats to the mini-mangans.
YEAH!!!!!!! Nothin sweeter
Hip Hip Hooray! It’s awesome when we get to celebrate how awesome our kids are.
I’m not a fan of Killola. Ivew tried, but I’m not. This new song, however, and the new sound is wonderful.
BTW, this show is fucking ridiculous.
Goodnight :Kyle McLachlan:
Just what episode have you arrived at this conclusion at?
Magic Piano goes free for the day:
I’d not been thinking of “Return of the Mack” yet heard about it twice in 24 hrs, once in this conversation, then a second time on the Frank Skinner Podcast. Odd.
At least it isn’t Maki The Knife. 😉
I am SO glad it’s Friday. I cannot tell you all what a crazy couple of weeks I’ve had.
C: slamming coffee while my eggs boil so I can get to Evil around 6 a.m. Lots to do. . . lots to do . . .
xox and mushies
Its Friday? Friday!
Great. Now I’ve started watching Twin Peaks. Like I really have time for this. Stupid damn brilliant shows that I missed and now have to go back and deal with. Grumble, grumble.
Einstein proved right AGAIN:
One Hundred and Eleventy Firsties!!!! Buwahahahaha
*walks away, pouty*
Know what I hate. People who say, “it’s de ja vu all over again” I just want to bob them in the nose, then show them what de ja vu means. :devil:
Crazy… sometimes these posts all look alike. That, or its deja vu all over again.
*bops Lo Pan in the nose… twice*
Know what else I hate? When you take your car in to be serviced and the mechanics not only change your radio station (which I could live with) but they reprogram the radio so their new station is now programmed where your old station was. That ticks me off.
(go ahead, ask me what kind of day I had yesterday… I dare you)
Um… is that a Canadian thing?
Know what I hate? Employees who are supposed to send you a report daily but decide, since you’re waaaaay across the country, they can hold on to them and only send them once a week. No matter how much you plead, beg or threaten otherwise.
Morning pan! Wow I’m glad it is friday. I have had enought Exchange 2010 learnin’ for one week
Know what I hate? When my teddy bear recommends a free app and stupid I-tunes decides it doesn’t want to access the app store.
(as you can see, my day today is shaping up to be as good as yesterdays)
Bunny, what kind of day did you have yesterday.
*Ducks* *runs away* *grabs coat on way out*
Reaper <—– learned to get out of arms lenght when making comments like that a log time ago
I have a stapler on my desk. I can throw hard and long if I’m grumpy enough.
All the way to Appleton, Wisconsin?
*Thinks he should stop pushing bunnys buttons and his luck”
It was a bad enough day that I was grumpy to my hubby for no reason. I’m making him fudge today to make up for my grumpiness.
REAPS! How the fuck are you?
Lo Pan, busy busy busy. Maybe things will slow down next week. But good Finely got a call from my son from BMT (basic milatary training)

It’s really, really cool.
It really bothers me to see Bert and Ernie rendered in 3D or as claymation. Grrrr.
they have the claymation on youtube. didn’t see the 3d, though
It appears that I was mistaken. No 3D, just the stop motion version.
Where what why? ^
You don’t want to see. Trust me. The stuff of nightmares.
Well now I must
Well Hanna was bloody marvellous.
I’ve heard it is quite good.
Montana? Well she does rock the Maiden tee shirt and muppet skin boots.
From what I hear she rocks a whole lotta shit
I can’t believe she’d wear Muppets. That’s just wrong.
I can’t believe she’d sing “Smells Like Teen Spirit” in concert.
Youre, of course, jesting…
No. I’m not.
‘Scuse me. Just need to find the proper corner to hang myself…
I know. 🙁
I’d rather go naked than wear Muppets
we would rather you wouldn’t
I just don’t like my eyes to burn out of my head.

Well Kali Ma to you too!

Miley wearing an Iron Maiden t-shirt?! That’s just like deja vu all over again.
Anime I’ve been watching:
Gosick (ep 16) — excellent series
Deadman Wonderland (ep 3) — good so far
Hanasaku Iroha (ep 5) — very good slice of life series
Battle Girls (ep 5) — fun alternate history show
AnoHana (ep 3) — potential to be excellent
Steins;Gate (ep 5) — good so far
Tiger & Bunny (ep 5) — very good show about superheros on a reality show
Shows I’m not sure I’ll stick with:
Blue Exorcist (ep 3)
[C] Control (ep 2)
Aria no Hidan (ep 3)
A bridge to the Stars (ep 4)
Denpa Onna (ep 3)
Well, errands have been run. Fudge is in the fridge setting. Now to rustle me up some grub and watch the noon news.
I’m trying to imagine what horror I did to become frist of the week.
I don’t know how Sam’s club can make any money selling hotdogs with krout, relish and 2 gallons of soad for $1.70 but i’m glad they do.
krout? does that double up as cement?
it might but i would have to let you know later tonight or tomarrow
Want You Gone (Jonathan Coulton)
Well here we are again, It’s always such a pleasure, Remember when you tried to kill me twice? Oh, how we laughed and laughed, Except I wasn’t laughing, Under the circumstances I’ve been shockingly nice.
You want your freedom take it, That’s what I’m counting on, I used to want you dead but, Now I only want you gone.
She was a lot like you, (Maybe not quite as heavy), Now little Caroline is in here too. One day they woke me up, So I could live forever, It’s such a shame the same will never happen to you.
You’ve got your short, sad life left, That’s what I’m counting on, I’ll let you get right to it, Now I only want you gone.
Goodbye, my only friend, Oh, did you think I meant you? That would be funny if it weren’t so sad, Well you have been replaced, I don’t need anyone now, When I delete you maybe I’ll stop feeling so bad.
Go make some new disaster, That’s what I’m counting on, You’re someone else’s problem, Now I only want you gone, Now I only want you gone, Now I only want you gone.
Sadly not quite as catchy as ‘Still Alive’.
Van, I hope that’s not in reference to some real life situation of yours.
Ah no Jack, it’s the lyrics to the end song of Portal 2.
Oh… that’s from Portal 2. Never mind.
One these is not like the other.
Well, you know, I read those and I, um…
Here’s Return of the Mack:
(The video is kinda unintentionally hilarious.)
What’s Portal 2?
I refuse to bite.
You’ll be asking what space invaders is next..
space invaders? like E.T.
I heard somewhere that ET was originally meant to be a Vegetable alien, hence his affiliation with plant life.

I was thinking about this yesterday. I’m glad Youtube has it uploaded.
I fondly remember that one. It was awesome! 🙂
I remember when it was first released. I couldn’t believe it. LOL
Hehe, I remember that from the VHS release paired with the show with Vincent Price.
I used it as a defense against my little sisters watching Barney.
but Barney was just a big muppet, right?
Space Invaders is that show where people surprise other people by redecorating their homes, right?
Duhhhh! I dont live under a rock you know.
Never knew the guy was Welsh (yes he wrote the Firefox novel):
So I guess I’m singin. Or poetryin’. Or something. UH what is thy bidding?
Looks like I may be doing another ode to San Jose unless things change.
I think the Aerosmith song was already dealt with. How about some stolen dialogue from the movie Cocoon (set in Tampa) or a stolen paragraph from “Naked came the Manatee” (technically all writers from Miami rather than Tampa, but it’s close enough and who doesn’t love that title). Dave Barry is one of the authors. That should count for something.
Or just make something up. Sing an ode to Cigar City Brewery or something.
Oh… Oh Cocoon it is, sir.
I’m imagining Jack in one of those Wham! era “Choose Life” shirts.

Finally, the new trailer for Green Lantern has got me interested in the movie.
Here tumbleweed, come here boy!
I’m into the Green Lantern trailer too, ditto.
I think Sly B and I might be checking out Thor next week. We’re on vacation!
So, how are you all?
Ed: I’m loving that Digital Jazz remixes of Tron you posted a while ago.
EssBee: Busy and tired, but otherwise good.
Needing to stay up late as possible. Got off work about 2:45PM, and next shift starts 11PM tomorrow night.
So you may get a live-post PBP of something on Netflix streaming.
Alas, it shall not be 21 Jump Street as they have pulled it from stream.
Just watched E2 of Dr. Who. I’m giving it a bit of a meh. Two things I like:
1) Amy is hotter
2) I love River
I think it will improve based on the events to follow. I think this article from Tor hits on some important points in that respect.
Thanks, ditto! Awesome article!
I’m beginning prep work for National Homebrew Day tomorrow.
Spent the night at LepreCon, did my toastmaster thing, introducing the famous people. Saw friends I never see anywhere except for these Cons. Good time had by all.
I’ve been up for 25 hours, and oddly don’t feel too bad. I should have no trouble sleeping in prep for my shift tonight…
OT is good, OT is good….
The wilderness ain’t as remote as it used to be:
Nunslaughter is bad. So bad that I have to wonder if I’m missing the joke.
And of course, the next thing served up is “Everything You Ever” from Dr. Horrible, which is just a really good song.
How’s the family, NS?
Looks like I might be singing soon! Oh, Rhettro . . .
Odds are more likely that I’ll be singing your song. We’ll see what Sunday brings.
No, I think we’ll be hearing Grateful Rhett soon!
A toast! To homebrewing!
Saw 13 Assassins today, well worth checking out if you like Samurai movies.
You got to love a movie where after the big fight the survivors look gnackered.
To home brewing!
I shall have one tonight.
Off to a 9 year old bday party!
Well brewing fun time is over. Time to go mow the lawn.
We went to walmart today. There was a neat iris that is watered by giving it a couple of ice cubes every few days.
EssBee – Fray is six months now, so she’s eating fruits and vegetables. We picked up a few teething rings for her today, the water filled kind, so she’s now playing “pick and throw”. I’m getting bored with the pick part, but she’s having a blast throwing.
The adults are sick of the BS management at their jobs, but I’m sure you understand that bit. Rom is doing fine, though I wish he’d read more. And he drives me nuts complaining that he’s bored when he doesn’t have permission to use the PS3, though he has a gamecube in his room. And everything else that we wished for as kids. He’s not quite spoiled but… Damn close.
So, good overall. And how’s yours? 🙂 Neither of us have been around the Pan much lately.
Well now I want a few teething rings!
We’re good here. Just celebrated a birthday for a niece who’s growing up way too fast. Same on the jobs.
I am more interested in “13 Assassins” than any other 2011 movie, I think.
Happy Mother’s Day to the DP Mothers!
Well, I was going to type the exact same thing, so I’ll just be an internet hipster and say
What does the internet hipster wear these days? A bowling shirt and mutton chops?
^ ditto but not THE ditto of course.
Now this small:
Oh and that is 15 pounds sterling and not weight.
well I feel like a stupid American. When I saw 15 pound computer in the title I was thinking weight, not money.
Cool concept though.
Good morning and Happy Mother’s Day
WORD to the Mothers!
Is it a big word?

I’m enjoying this song, but not the price.
It’s the music in the new X-Men First Class trailer. A variation of this group also did the music for the Green Lantern trailer.
Apparently there is a cheaper price in iTunes, but it might be arranged slightly different. Or is that slightly differently? Is that right?
Why the fuck is one song 11$???
That is really nice. Not quite Zimmer (I love the Batman soundtracks), but also not worth $11. Wonder if they accidentally hit 1 one too many times?
CW: The Judds on OWN. Against my will. By force.
Also, quitting smoking. Again.
Quick story I have to share but realize only I find it hi-larious…
Kids got it up their butt to have lemonade stand. I tell them its already 5pm and no-one will probably be out still looking for yard sales but there’s a half a pitcher of day old lemonade in the fridge and, if the do the work, they’re more than welcome to “sell” it out front. They say “ok” and put what I think is a very inflation laden 50 cents per cup price tag on the goods.
Long story short… in 15 minutes they sold 3 cups and made 8$. Yeah, you do the math. Thats the last time I doubt their savvy. Jeebus.
Um… I’ve got nothing. But if your kids start a company, I’m buying stock! 🙂
It’s going going to be bigger than the Facebook IPO. Count me in.
Yeah! The LoEdTo company is now in business. The kids wont mind if we use them for personal gain..!!
Oh yeah! Putting the future to work to save the past! We’ll make it big!
Well… I mean thats what Trump would do.
I mean, minus the “save the past” stuff
*nudge* I meant us. *nudge*
I had low expectations when my wife rented The Green Hornet. My expectations were not met. Bleh!
Wait, so it was worse? Impossible.
You have too little faith in Hollywood’s ability for utter crapitude.
No I saw Tron:Legacy
I was ok with Tron Legacy. I think I heard so many bad things about it that, by the time I did see it, my expectations were lowered to the point the movie couldn’t help but exceed them.
*searches for duct tape and binding wire*
I quite enjoyed it myself, although Caucasian guy was outshone by Oriental guy.
That’s true of the original too. 🙂
Already on DVD?
We saw Thor in 2D today and enjoyed the heck out of it for what it was. Made me wish for a Thor movie based solely on the Norse myths.
Morning Pan, back to work today…grrrrrrrrrrrrr!
If IKEA did scifi manuals:
Also reminds me some of the graphic instructions on the walls in Portal.
They forgot the timey wimey for the Tjardiis.
If Herge had done Star Wars:
I have 10 men doing things to my driveway right now.
I hope you didn’t eat them afterwards TEB.
The problem with all these cool looking movies coming out is I have to wait until they come to video to see most of them 🙁
Me too. 🙁
And in other news… I was rather unimpressed with the recent Dr. Who episode.
I actually have to agree with the earlier comment – meh.
Great. Between you two and EssBee’s dislike of the season so far, there’s no way in hell I’m going to waste my time on any more Who. You guys tell me if it actually gets better. I have a funny feeling that officially my Who will end at “The End of Time”. Amazing what the absence of one writer will do.
The second of the two parter or the pirate episode?
I missed you, my friend:
given hollywood love of remakes. surprised that seeing this list no one had tapped the troma library for those films are just perfect to be remade . though surf nazies would have a tital change given how un pc nazies are and no studio would now a adays even consider children at play mostly due to the canibilism .
Isn’t plastic surgery required for a “tital change”?
I thought most of the boobs in all the Troma movies were pretty nice. No reason for them to be remade.

A day full of grrrrrr!
That sucks, Van!
Sorry to hear that Van, I hope you get it back and didn’t have anything important/critical inside.
You gotta invest in stronger magnets. Geesh.
WTF? Man I’m sorry. That blows.
Well looks like the police found the bag, but won’t tell me the contents, so I won’t know what is missing until I make a visit to the police station…ho hum.

Finally listening to this week’s Deadpan and cracking up over Jack trying to remember that guy’s name. The one with a V in the middle of it.
Okay, so maybe ya had to be there…
V is for Vendetta.
^Some of those celebs are younger than I thought they were. LOL The only real surprise to me was Grant and Tory both being 40, they both seem like late 20’s to me.
I figured SLJ was old, but yikes. Nick Fury isn’t going to be kicking much ass in the upcoming Marvel movies.
He doesn’t need to kick ass, since he’s got the POWER OF THE JULES!
“And you will know My name is the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon thee.”
Read this post quickly and you’ll see “I kick ass for the lord!”
You, sir, win all the money.
I can’t remember if I posted this already, and I’m too lazy to check.
For all of you Portal fans:
I don’t think they could’ve found a less-flattering picture of Kirstie Alley. . .
Sadly, there haven’t been any flattering pictures to pull from since the 80’s.
/still has a thing for Lt. Savvik.
It SUUUUUUUUUURE is windy outside.
Its blowing so hard Ive already came twice!
Also, not sure if this is sad or not, but I only know about half of those “celebrities”
The Mythbuster guys each being 40 definitely comes as a surprise. I would have put money that I was older than either of them.
On the plus side, Loudon Wainwright III (with daughter Lucy as support) put on a good show.
Since his daughter Martha Wainwright supposedly dedicated her song “Bloody Motherfucking Asshole” to Loudon, I doubt if she’ll ever be a part of that bill.
Martha did duet with LW3 on one song on the So Damn Happy Album.
I’m sure there should be an extra N somewhere in that last message.
I finally got around to posting some other pictures from my sister’s house/neighborhood. There also should be a bit of video there somewhere.
While the Tuscaloosa tornado got all the press, the one that hit her house was the only one in that state to get the EF-5 designation. It traveled 132 miles, hit top winds of 210mph and killed 70 people.
It both blew AND sucked.
God damn…. thats magnificent in its terror. Know she has Deadpanite support.
That’s incredible, JOe.
I do hope that somewhat adequate care has reached that neighborhood, J0e, even if the media has their eyes elsewhere.
Lots of volunteers have shown up. About 3 days after the tornados, the local governments ask for volunteers. They were hopeing for 500, they got 2000!
Still, there were some 60 homes destroyed just in my sister’s area. That’s a lot of rubble to sift through.
That’s an interesting point. Ever wonder what happens after a neighborhood is reduced to kindling? Well … I guess I should call that in to the deadpan.
Spoiler … it’s nothing like on TV.
See, every time someone bashes the U.S for being too jingoistic and “me-centric”(which I’m not really arguing with), folks up and support the shit out of each other. Just wish it didnt take a tragedy. Cliche but true
That is indeed an impressive set. Glad your sister came through it.
Does anyone at all remember the band Letters to Cleo? Forgot how awesome and terrible they could be. Groovin on em.
Ah yes, Here and Now. That was one of the one great album bands that I jumped on in the 90s. In the same category were Seven Mary Three and Spacehog.
I loved the shit out of American Standard. Still do.
I still have that album too, unlike Days of The New that came out around the same time.
Days of the New… Is that the band that became Tantric when the lead singer fired the band?
LtC was a fun band. They also did a really good version of “I Want You To Want Me” for “10 Things I Hate About You”.
Yes, remember when crappy record company rockpop sounded like Letters to Cleo? “Here and Now” was an irritatingly catchy tune, fer sure.
Kay Hanley is about to turn 43 years old… and she still looks MIGHTY fine.
Best. Part. Of. Band.
I forever want to add a “T” at the end when saying “rubric”. I blame the “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” movie.
“Oklahoma! Oklahoma! Oklahoma!”
I shouldn’t be surprised, but… I am.
Having a yuck day so far this morning.
My kitchen tap decided it doesn’t want to shut off so we had to shut off the main water valve to the house. I took it apart, which was a bad idea. Called our regular plumbers, they can’t get in until next week. The next plumbers I called will be in between 2 and 4 this afternoon. Going the whole day without running water sounds like fun to me.
TEB: Depending on the type of faucet you have, the “stop” pin might have broken off. The easiest thing to do is to replace the faucet. It really isn’t hard to do, but it can be intimidating if you haven’t done it before.
You do not want to know what’s involved in changing the faucet. Being an older home, the faucet is soldered into the copper pipes with no joints (I’ve changed the bathroom tap once because it’s more modern so I do know a bit of what’s involved). I think I’ll leave it to the professionals.
Yeah, once you described that there were not cutoffs, I figured it would not be fun. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help.
Jack, I know I owe you a recording. I was planning to do it today but… I kind of have other things on my mind. Like how am I going to go to the bathroom with no water?
TEB: Under the sink should be two cutoff valves: one for the cold, and one for the hot water. Turn them to the right (I think) and that will shut the water off to the tap. Then you can turn the main water back on.
You would think that wouldn’t you? No our house is an older home so doesn’t have any of those new fangled tap things. I want to renovate my kitchen so we’ve been putting off some of the minor repairs until then but sometimes it just can’t be helped. I won’t be renovating until the cat passes on because having workers in would kill her (really it would)
Wow. That really sucks.
Um… get hubby to spring for a hotel room? 🙂
For one day? naw, I think I can survive. We do have two bathrooms so when I finish with one I’ll use the other. Bottled water works for hand washing and little stuff. In theory, the tap will be working by the time I need to make dinner, especially since hubby has said he’s going to be an hour or two late coming home.
By the way, Here are the standings so far:
JR Murdock sings Shania Twain – Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under
Jack Sings Kiss – Detroit Rock City (DONE!)
Ed from Texas sings Grateful Dead – Estimated Prophet
Cj sings Mel C and Bryan Adams – When You’re Gone
Ditto sings Rocky Theme – Gonna Fly Now (optional)
Energizer Bunny Sings Boston’s – Don’t Look Back
Lost Ralph sings Aerosmith – Lightning Strikes
Nobody had New York so nobody sings for Lo Pan.
Lo Pan Sings Aerosmith – Lightning Strikes
Nomad Scry sings Mel C and Bryan Adams – When You’re Gone
Nobody had Philadelphia so they don’t have to sing
The San Jose/Detroit series is still going on.
I’m not sure that “singing” is the right word, but… =D
Can’t you convince your Significant Other to join in during the recording?
Just found this today. Give “Going Postal” a try.
Speaking of which, we just saw the Terry Pratchett live action movie Going Postal. I think it was the best of the three we have seen (Hogfather, Colour of Magic, and Going Postal). I was kind of meh on the animated ones.
I really enjoyed the Going Postal book. I’m looking forward to seeing the movie.
Umm, wasn’t a two part TV adaptation?
Possibly Van. The Movie Channel here did it as a two part miniseries without the commercials.
Still was pretty good.
J0e: You should not only call in to the Deadpan what happens after a disaster like that, you should also blog about it.
Your right about that Amy. The stories I have heard are simply fantastic but very few people write them down.
Interesting note – ran into volunteers who had come from the Gulf Coast. They had been helped by volunteers from my sister’s area after Katrina and were now returning the good deed.
What goes around ….
That is all kinds of awesome. Stories of good deeds should be written down and celebrated. 🙂
GOOD NEWS!GOOD NEWS !GOOD NEWS !
Through a friend, my sister has been put in touch with a FEMA employed, victim advocate!
This woman has worked as a building contractor in FLA AND was an adjuster for 2 major insurance companies so she not only knows EXACTLY what to look for as far as damage that needs to be fixed … she knows ALL THE TRICKS!
Apparently there are things that the insurance companies are required to cover you for/do for you … but unless you actually know to ask for these things they aren’t required to voluntarily tell you about them. Evil Inc at it’s finest.
Anyway, she talked with this woman yesterday and reports that for the first time since the storm … she actually slept through the night last night.
Yea advocates! Yea FEMA!
It’s good when something good can help along a bad situation.
I picked up this free app for my ipad. It’s really cool
Hmmmm, I was reading a review and didn’t think I had enough music for it to strut it’s stuff.
My music library seems to be good with it. I imagine hubby’s will be off the charts. He has to pick and choose what he puts on the ipad because he’s got so much music in itunes
I was going to get an iPad 2, but ordered a new netbook instead as the current one overheats from time to time (a neat trick in winter).
It does LOOK cool, but I’d find it extremely annoying. But what do I know? I still use Media Player 7 to manage my music. If it aint broke…

The plumber is here! The Plumber is here!
I told him to put in shutoff valves since it looks like he has to replace the tap anyway
The new faucet is here! The new faucet is here!
I’m picking out a faucet for you. Not an ordinary faucet for you. But the extra best faucet that you can buy, with vinyl and stripes and a cup built right in.
Actually, I told him to give me the cheapest faucet they had. As I said, I’m redoing my kitchen probably within a year and paying for the stupid thing twice kind of annoys me
Good Lord – I’ve heard about this – cheap faucets! Stop! Stop! Stop it! Stop it! Stop it! Good. Father, could there be a God that would let this happen?
Thank you, Bunny, for keeping people up to date on the hockey anthems.
Lots of folks still need to pay up!!
OK, back to the mines.

Have you considered a storm shelter for your tax shelter?
the above comment was supposed to be down at the bottom of the page with the news of Ed’s impending bi-mortgage.
Staring at my shoes right, in fact.

Hi sweety. Slowly back away from the Tegan Quin. Your’e on my turf. Dont you see the tagging? ;P
Good luck with that!
YOU WILL BE!!!
Youve seen her in the Northshore video, right? Thats Joan Jett hot
Oh Lord yes.
Thats what she said.

Lo: You know Urge Overkill just released a new album, right?
Oh and HOW, my boy 🙂
Maxim just named Olivia Munn the second sexiest woman in the world.
Olivia Munn has no right to this.
Well I wouldn’t kick her out of bed.
Well there’s a giant line between not kicking out of bed and being named #2 sexiest in the world. Someone put it best when they said, “Olivia Munn is Dairy Queen sexy. If you saw her behind the counter she would come off as smokin. In the big ol’ world of actresses, tho, shes way down the list”.
I tend to agree. And I tend to think I’m spending too much time dissecting this.
And it seems the #1 spot goes to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Who is she, you ask? Well shes a Victoria Secret model and Megan Fox’s replacement in the new Transformers movie. She also needs to eat a lil somethin.
T3 has a great trailer until you realise it’s a trailer for transformers.
The groan in the audience were earth shaking…
Ha!!!! Its so true. I have felt this disturbance as well.
+s -in +by
a lil somethin? pass that girl a 6 pack of burgers.
*thinking out loud* shouldn’t you need Victoria Secret products to model them.
This^. And this^
Ugh. Bad pick. I don’t find her that attractive, and I loathe the “sleepy” eye look most of those models use.
Sleepy = high/dont give a shit.
And I concur
This list lost all credibility when it put Cameron Diaz all the way at #4.
I used to think she was attractive till I heard her do an interview with the local morning show guys.
OMFG I would bet he was high… on chromosomes
I just peed a little!
I was hoping that comment would make someone spit out coffee or soda but I’ll settle for liquids leaving the body in different ways
Unfortunate name of the day… “Johnny Butts”

Is Maxim a straight magazine?
I honestly don’t know. I have never read it. I have read more articles in play boy. Mostly while I worked for the company that prints play boy. My press didn’t print the pictures.
Yeah its one of those “guys” mags that try way too hard to be manly and guyish.
I feel like Mr Rogers to day. Got to work took my coat off. Changed shoes (I have to ware steel toed shoes at work). Got cold so I put on my other coat. now i just need a song to sing.
Can we go to the land of Make Believe?
only if you are a good boy
WHAT? What where…where you goin with this…help? Help!
The first thing I though of when I read that was 2 seens from Troy in Community:
Troy: My uncle put his finger in my no-no!
later in the show:
Troy: My uncle never put his finger in my plop-plop. I know, I’m bummed about it too.
God thats a wonderful show. Well acted, superbly written…
I have no idea how they manage to get some of those lines out. It is kind of dumb but funny dumb not cross the line Cameron Diaz/Miss Teen USA 2007 – South Carolina dumb. That is a difficult line to walk.
I think Maxim is pretty metro. LOL
I’d agree with that.
I feel more like Mr. Robinson.
Congratz Sly and EssBee!
some morning funny:

Hey deadpan. Sitting at the doctors waiting for the kinestheologist
Saw the doctor already. She said I could travel to Arizona but might have to double up on my meds during the three hour flight
Now to set things up with my goddess and Jack. I’m thinking the second weekend of July
That sounds like good news, TEB!
ditto what ditto wrote.
I will of course be extremely jealous and all that jazz
Only if TEB is pretending to play the saxophone.
Only if its “Baker Street”
Penciled that weekend into my calendar. 🙂
The “Light on my head and Deadpan on my feet” weekend?
Sly and EssBee … FTW !!!!
Congratulations you two. 🙂
why you should never have your face on a plate
I just thought I’d let you all know that I exist. I shall try to be more present in the upcoming weeks.
Yea, being more present!!!!
I post, therefore I am.

I’ll go to the basement and check. Now where didn’t I put my matches. It’s dark down there.
Quick! Inflate the autopilot!

Did Reaps ever come back from the basement?

^ Cursewords warning.
My brain hurts and I’m strangely aroused.
that was great
Man, The Good Wife is a great show.
Congrats to the Bees.
^That’s the Bees Knees.
Sent an e-mail to Cj (cc’d Jack). How strange is it that the first place I want to go after being cleared for travel, is Arizona?
Of course, since nobody wants to go to Arizona in the summer, flight prices are amazing.
Are you ready for the end of the world nex weekend.
Any chance we can get that bumped up a bit? It would save me from having to mow the lawn one more time.
No kidding. Wish I would have known about this earlier we just planted some grass.
That money could have gone to doing some debauchery.
People are just nuts!
Boy, those Mayans would be pissed…
I think Roland Emmerich’s film already did that, Jack.
Whoever did the webpage contradict themselves. May 21st is the day at the top, October 21st further down.
Maybe God will destroy the world twice..just for a laugh..
Actually, I think may 21 is the day of rapture but actual dooms day is in October
I should get some peace and quiet on the 21st then..
Oh, Linda . . .
What bothered you about that interview? Besides the correction about the rocking song. 🙂
I was more swooning over the photo than bothered. Even tho her new album is a bit sucky, swoooon.
Ah, that makes more sense. 🙂
Watch out for that train.

Yep, that’s a flesh colored fuzzy animal, between my legs.
Its possible Ive gone blind. Let me see..

I’m not sure hot to prevent melting in the Arizona summer, though. It’s only 21c (approx 70F) and I’m already in shorts and a t-shirt
One of those wide brimmed hats with corks?
Or is that for flies…
BTW – and yes I’m fishing this time, Cj – did you know my birthday is July 12? Coincidence? I wonder…

Was rather good wasn’t it?
Fringe that is,
Astrid’s future hairdo = oh, mamma
I know I was down on Fringe when it went into the soul magnet story arc, but I do have a great love for the show overall. And, the finale definitely demonstrated all of the things I love about this show. Well done, Fringe… well done.
I think I’m going to have a liein.

Ooh, goody. More free reasons for my kids to not let my use my Ipads. Nice finds, Van.

Today has been a good vacation/anniversary day. We caught up a bit on a few tv shows, including Treme, which I LOVE.
belated grats for your anniversary Essbee.
WTG EssBee! I celebrate mine in 14 days 🙂 Congratulations!
I don’t see Jack in Skype and the DeadPan site is giving me errors in IE. I had to switch to FF to see it. Hmm… stoopid IE.
CD: World Wide Imperial Stout from Dogfishhead
Roast and dark fruits with the aroma and taste. I’m giving this a 4 out of 5 about equal to Mephistopheles but for different reasons.
I walked past two giant pallets of Season One of He-Man just now. That was from replication.
Here in duplication, I have a title about “Anal Irrigation” it is a medical-looking thing but I am hoping it is about very careful watering of crops.
Pandora’s comedy music station has been trying to push country music down my throat for the last half hour, so I read “two giant pallets of Season One of He-Man” as “Season one of He-Haw”. This, of course, lead to flashbacks of hats with tags hanging off of them, people jumping up from a field of corn to tell horrible jokes, and I gar-un-tee that I will have the “where o where are you tonight” song running through my head all day. Fuckashitpiss.
Why does 3/4 of the songs that Pandora find eligible for a comedy music radio station have to be rap and/or country? I keep maxing out my ability to put a thumbs down of stuff.
