well so much for the liein.
Sorry to wake you, Van.
CW: Clash of the Gods on the History channel.
Weird in that like the portrayal of many biblical dramatisations, it treats the myth as literally true…
Zeus: Where are you now?
In a wine bar in California with Dionysus partying. The locals just need keep him away from the livestock.
According to the Percy Jackson novels he’s at the top of the Empire State Building.
I never noticed before but shouldn’t there be an apostrophe in “Jack Mangans Deadpan”? I’m going to put one in the show notes just to be contrary.
Should we start calling you Mary?
No, that’s all right.
Is it just me, or does the word “vagina” come to mind for anyone else instead of “podcast” in this episode’s intro?
That’s just you.
for all the people who long to be one of the cool kids:

Oh good lord!
I enjoy Shaun the Sheep.

Good morning, DP!
My NHL POEM is going in today with the show notes
My content was not included 🙁
Not sure if it real story, but still a cool fail
Star Wars meets the old west
life imitating art/games or OMFG they found the castle!
awww, I feel sorry for the turtle
no kidding, if it is trying to get the other side of the fence Mario can just hit that opening like in the game because the door is mounted wrong.
Cj and I, in an e-mail, threatened to tie Jack down and use him for our own purposes. Jack was strangely quiet on the subject. I take silence as unspoken approval :happy:
We’re off to Denver in the rain today! Bwahaha.
Come see me!
Actually I cant remember the last time its rained this long here. For this long. Here.
Need to catch up on the comments. It’s been a busy day so far.
CP: a song Jack doesn’t like. You can guess what it is. 😉
I haven’t watched any of Fringe yet. That will be one of the projects this summer.
Its SOOOO good!!!! But season 1 is near awful. Just bear thru it… you wont regret it. That, or I can just tell you the few essential season 1 eps to watch. Basically they switched gears beginning second season and havent looked back.
Yeah, I knew that. At the time, I had no interest in seeing what appeared to be an X-Files knock-off. And since it didn’t get better until episode 8–or thereabouts–I wasn’t interested in getting invested in a show that was likely to be canceled.
Oh, how wrong I was.
Which isn’t an uncommon state of affairs. 🙂
Its more common than the Perpetual State of Motion…
*jumps off cliff*
That’s so true!
*jumps off cliff*

What comes around goes around

Joe: Thank you for your disaster summary.
Why do I always seem like such a downer?
If I ever get to come to a mmmmeetup, it must be all booze and giggles.
You *aren’t* a downer. Period.
If you come to a mmmmmeetup we’ll be making sure *you* are the one giggling over booze. 😉
If downer = a person with a real life going thru real stuff, then yes you are a downer. And so are we all.
Why won’t my iPad accept my emailset up? Van, what am I doing wrong?
using and iPad?
*Grabs Lo’s coat*
Details TEB? Not your email of course but the servers you need to use for your email.
It was actually a rhetorical question, Van. I’ll figure it out. I’m a smart cookie :cheerful:
Rhetorical questions are always easy to answer…
To the anonymous idiot in the bathroom: Really? You are going to talk to your daughter while in a stall? Really? It’s that important to be on the phone at that time?
Oh thats the WORST
It’s really disgusting, imo.
*pushes anonymous guy off cliff*
The fuck did my coat go…?
*runs by handing Lo his coat*
sorry garbed the wrong one..
Next time garb your own cota!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok, I’m done now.
My son is officially a graduate of pre-k. He starts kindergarten in the fall.
In other news. I’m getting old.
I think you should all be here in June to celebrate the momentously biggest most important birthday of my lifetime.
Unfortunately, I’ve got too much going on in June right now: a wedding, Relay for Life, Family Reunion, among other things.
You guys crack me up! 🙂
For you new iPadders, do a search on the app store for ‘Rat on a Skateboard’, it’s free for a short time.
but but but
We’ve secretly switched Reaper’s coat with rich Folger’s(™) Crystals.
what the fuck is this can of nasty coffee doing where my coat was
God DAMN that pic, Rhett.
Ain’t it great? With Beanie Babies having been such a big hit I wonder what the market is for Crotch Poodles?
There’s many creams for it over the counter….
*brushes rich Folger’s(™) Crystals off his shoulder*
I knew there was a reason I hated drinking that crap.
re: “Crotch Poodles”
I am picturing any of the “Valley Girl-esque” characters from an 80’s “Bueller” type flick.
This look –
Well I did prefer TIE Fighter:
More like DIE fighter! See what I did..er..

I knew it! http://i.imgur.com/63Bme.png
LIES! It just makes really big bubbles. 😉
Does someone smell rich Folger’s(™) Crystals?
You’re Doing It Wrong(tm)
better yet, try freebasing that shit

CP: Rise Up With Fists!!! — Jenny Lewis With The Watson Twins
Stolen lyrics (I would call them in but I could swear they’ve been done before)
They’ve got us on the run
We’re running for our lives
Back from a nice lunch with a girlfriend.
Cj, hold that thought and we can celebrate our birthdays together when I get out there.
June is a wonderful month to be born!
Lo Pan: Thought you might be interested in this next week.
Youre damn right I would be!!! If I didnt have to leave the state for 2 weeks for training…
Where you going?
I wouldn’t know Reaper, I was obviously was premature.
The latest Wander Radio is quite jaunty this month, my feet are tapping..even to that song with the whale songs…
Ticking away, the moments that make up a dull day-
“Pink Floyd in race against time to reissue albums”
While I’m fairly sure that “Real Steel” is just a predictable update of “Over The Top”, I’m starting to look forward to it. It has the potential to be a fun popcorn flick.
Novella? pah! it’s a NOVEL!
I heard it was only a short story.
Never mind the quality feel the width…
That’s what she said. 😉
This has win written all over it
Is there really a new arm-wrestling movie?
Boxing, in this case. With robots.
You mean they already announced transformers 4?
when ditto said popcorn flick, I thought it was about farming
It is based on a Richard Matheson story though:
Whether it’s a Bladerunner or Slaughterhouse 5..only time will tell
Does it have Shia?
that’s all that matters to me.
Jack accused us of cheating Cj, my skin is thick enough not to be offended.
On palooza voting.
Ok, does anybody know the name of this film.
Must be from the 70’s. Possibly set in a convent or church, where the first murder happens in a baptism font, any ideas?
That was your impossible question for the day.
Possibly Canadian or a US TV movie.
I’m pretty sure that was the 1970 film “Baptism by FIRE!”
I’m so confused.
Music fans rejoice. The Library of Congress has put an amazing amount of public domain music online. There is stuff that is 100 years old!
100 years old! I bet there’s some Willy Nelson in there.
*rim + shot*
I was expecting some “Rolling Stones”.
Bad dog! Bad robot!
There was a palooza vote?
OMGosh, I’ve been gone that long?
I’m like .. . I’d so never cheat on Jack… or any of you… you are my loves…
but.. ya know.. I suppose if Shia were available…
no no … I don’t mean it!
(I kinda mean it.)
Just came back from a walk. The deer were out in the park today. It was nice.
Need to be up at 5am tomorrow..ugh.
I don’t know what the issue is. I’m up at 5am every morning… Of course I’m in bed by 9pm too.
I’ve never got the gnack of an early night, if I went to bed at 9pm I would wake up at 3am…
LOL, Rhettro! That picture . . .
Back from Denver! Still raining!
I suppose I should upload the alternate angle shot.
That’s almost as satisfying as knocking down a structure of wooden sticks and dice.
Check out that diamond collar.
I suspect your wife would object.
Nah, she took the photos and then immediately started laughing.
Yep, that’s better . . .
That’s just what the Ice Dragon said in the episode of Nogging the Nog I’m watching.
In Soviet Russia the? airplane tests the pilot!
You got to watch out for pilots drinking glycol cocktails..
The pink posts excite me too much and I still can’t focus. So check this out.
Bunny is coming to see me.. and maybe Jack too, but mostly me *swoooon*
I guess I better check the internets for air travel prices from Glendale to Mesa.
Damn straight.. don’t forget to use your Southwest Rewards number.
Respect the Pink.
Um. Yes. Respect it.
Naughty catty remark inserted here.
Naughty remark inserted into the pink.
I thought you were supposed to sink the pink.
Its all the fashion.
Then what the hell did AC/DC mean by “Back in Black”?
Oh I think you know…
Drink the drink
Now I have to blaze this song…now.
I love Long Pan moar now.
I’m no Moar (I’m Gaul)
If youre a fan of G.I. Joe… dont watch this.
If youre not… you still shouldnt watch this
WHAT THE FUCK, right?
Means he’s wearing black, leather, pants, jacket, boots… all black. Back in his black leather attire. Kickin’ whoopass.
I still love you, Linda Perry, but you’re kinda tweaky-seeming.
Oh dear… I like her too but right now she seems like she could fit right in on Breaking Bad
It happens to some of us . . .
CW: Dark Angel S1, E1
Yeah! Never seen. Sly B’s brother brought us the DVDs.
I havent either. I hate Alba so very much that Ive shied away from it all these years
Eeek! So far, I’m in. Hot lesbian sidekick!
Yeah???? Well do tell after a while. Mayhaps I’ll check it out
I refuse to believe this band was AC/DC
Oh yeah. Everything great has humble beginnings.
True, but you can see hints. Plus it is cool to see Angus had the uniform from the start. 🙂
Sounds like they thought they were Kiss at the time.
P.S. Ellie Goulding FTW
I assume you saw her gyrating in that little black leather number on SNL?
Saw? Yes. Also I needed a new pair of pants.
You nasty. And I knew you’d say that.
Surely you cant blame me.
You mean this?
Dammit I just changed my pants, ditto.
Tho I must say I dont like her going all Aguilera on some of those notes
Girl can sway them hips
Time to pay the piper
Goodnight :English girl:
And btw, The San Jose Sharks have disposed of the Red Wings. We’ll get Dead rather than Kiss.
Yeah! Yeah where’s your god NOW, RHETT?????
Watching SNL apparently. I guess it’s time to go dig up Jerry Garcia.
Passed on to me by Mark Forman:
And one last item of note:
ditto’s Library of Congress link from earlier today features 32 yodeling tracks.
Of course, they get a big FAIL for having no downloads (unless I get a big FAIL for missing it).
Morning pan, Motorialz goes free for a few days (if you’ve played TrialsHD on the 360 and PC you’ll get the idea):
Morning,DP! Last day of vacation ’round here. It’s been a good week off.
Boo – Fox canceled The Chicago Code. I liked that one.
On a better cancellation note – NBC yanked the Wonder Woman series.
“Um.. Mr. Kelly…. we’re gonna pass”
In the meantime, please enjoy this video of the goddamn Batman getting his ass handed to him.
NSFW if you dont like curse words
but but but… it’s batman. no one can hand him his own ass…
I GOT IT. That guy is Chuck Norris in disguise!
OK, everyone back to work all is right with the world again.
sept in Detroit.
Dude touched the muthafuckin cape
Gentlemen Gaga is so silly He don’t need those.
I want to cry
*hands Lo a hanky*
Too bad I don’t like her face and find her body a little to stick-like.
ain’t that the truth:
About to: put a pork shoulder on the smoker!
Sounds like dinner at EssBee’s tonight. yummmm!!!!
Come on over! sandwiches ready at 5:30.
That’s a helluva an accent when you can make the word “bitch” sound like “wheels”.
“Wheels, make sandwheels”
I can’t make out a single word of the song. Wow.
crap, I wouldn’t make it. I might be able to drive there by 5:30 tomorrow. 🙂
Ha! Maybe next year for me..
You might have a little trouble driving the whole way also. Google maps suggests a kayak.
wonder if he planed that?
Well I’m at the cinema waiting for the following to start:
..and what a charming film it was, well worth checking out.
Bitch does make sandwich.
CE berger and noddle salad.
CW Community Ep 22
I have a headache.
I’ve listened to most of this episode (on my way to work)
justa J0e may have made me cry.
I tend to have that effect on women.

CW: Big Bang Theory
C: Crying after seeing the new Chrome ad
in a good way?
I haven’t seen it yet.
Ok peeps! You know you want it, it’s movie time!
Today’s movie is, Dante’s Inferno: An Animated Epic
The DVR write up: this animated take on the epic poem follows Dante as he travels through the nine circles of he’ll in order to save his true love, Beatrice, from Satan’s clutches
Let’s go over the rules since it’s been awhile.
Don’t expect grand spelling, especially since I’m doing this on the iPad and we all know how autocorrect
Expect lots and lots of spoilers
If WordPress lives up to it’s usual silliness, there will be an extended version of this PBP once Jack releases the comments
This film contains coarse language, nudity, and violence. I like it already
Wait… What? In association with EA Games and Visceral games? Ok, now I’m really courious
Obviously done for the game that came out a couple of years ago
You know, Dante’s inferno is one of the few books I havent read. The words of the narrator sound correct, though
All is dark and still
Oh my god, look at all the blood and guts
that didn’t take long
Full frontal ghost nudity
That’s just evil
The devil is bald. *nudges Van and Alvie*
bald guys aren’t so bad
*rubs bald head*
Dante, save me!
Ow, they’re sewing ribbon on him
Now he did it
Virgil the guide
Naked Gouls are just wrong
Monkey bats? In he’ll, everything is possible
He killed chiron. Now who’s going to ferry the boat
Can anyone hear me?!
He’ll has pleasures, too
I took two courses on the Divine Comedy. Very interesting stuff.
I hope I never go to limbo. Getting under that stick is a he’ll unto itself
Goddanmit apple! Hell is not he’ll, no matter how much you may want it!
The is only one philosophy in the inferno
So “he’ll” is like redneck hell, right?
This movie actually does have a video game feel. Especially the battles
The dammed are fleeing
Circle two looks like fun
Ok I take that back. Now it’s just gross
That is not Cerberus, no matter what they say
In the belly of Cerberus
Wow, that cross can do anything
Cool looking machinery
I have to admit, ghoul daddy is gross like everything else in this movie
Gold plated daddy
We sure see Beatrice without clothes a lot
That’s three points on a 10 point rating system right there.
Dante’s a bully
Riding on a giamt’s head
City of dis
The devil announce his upcoming nuptials
That is the strings looking minatsur
What the he’ll is that? I think it’s suppose to be a centaur bot who knows *shrug*
Think geek has all the best toys
even when they are completely useless they are still the best.
They’re coming fast a furious now
Wait… Apparently we’re still in circle seven. The movie’s playing wih my mind
Priests lie. *shrug*. Go figure
Dante’s such a badass
Ah, now circle eight
why you should never let the students make choices like this:
What goes around comes around
I nearly spit my water all over my monitor when I read that response.
I am coming for you!
Can you believe a traitor?
He’s such a Nimrod
Lucifer has button eyes
Reese. He’s liking blood
Ok, that last comment is way off. It should have been:
Ewwww. He’s puking blood
LOL! When I first read that autocorrected comment, I thought one of the demons was named Reese. 😆
That’s the Peanut Butter demon.
Dante and naked Beatrice, together at last
It was an ok movie. Like I said, did have a video game feel but that’s ok, everybody here should know I enjoy me some video games
Yea, Video games!!!!!
Mark Hamill was the voice of one of the characters. Cool
Yea, Mark Hamill. You keep getting those paying gigs, yo!
I’m not even going to try catching up. At this point, I can be considered one of those intermittently sighted objects. Like Haley’s Comet, or Natalie Portman’s Breasts.
Speaking of not seeing Natalie Portman’s breasts, I went to see Thor last night.
I kind of liked it.
Not seeing NP boobs was a real letdown for you?
Lejon is here! Drink your Kool-Aid and put on your Nikes!!
You might want to put your Nikes on first otherwise you risk not getting them on at all.
I would just like to say, the rumors of strychnine in the Kool-Aid are mostly false, and the Nikes are still pretty goddesses, but very small, and not really worth mentioning, but you can swat them with a :pan: and not get into much trouble.
This might annoy Lo, but the bassist from Sick Puppies reminds me a lot of LynZ.
Emma is hot unto herself…
She needs to find a better band tho… 🙂
There we go! 🙂
Woot! Sleigh Bells are working on a new album!
Always in motion is the present. Am I coming, going, or standing still?
I vote “A”
Can we file this one under asinine?
Mother Fucker that pisses me off! Capitalizing on that shit faster than Cthulhu can turn you into a stark raving madman.
The capitalizing alone doesn’t so much bother me, but taking the name of something they had NOTHING to do with and claiming it as something that only they can make money off of is just plain repulsive.
Well the pork shoulder smells great, but I wish I’d cooked it another hour. I’m going in.
You’ll only appreciate this if you are current on your Dr. Who watching.
The comments are awesome too. 🙂
Should I, or should I not, download the new Stevie Nicks album? I don’t have big hopes for this one . . .
Is her new single called “Edge of 67”?
Little story about that: The lead guitarist for one of the local country music groups I follow celebrated a birthday recently, and for his birthday, he was allowed to choose two songs for the band to learn and play. “Edge of Seventeen” was one of them. (The other was an instrumental.) At the performance, the lead singers (both women) apologized for the fact that they had to read off of lead sheets because there were just so darn many lyrics that they hadn’t had time to memorize them all. They gave an absolutely FANTASTIC performance of the song, though.
I think you should BAAAAAAA! BAAAA!
CW: The Borgias E1
What a messed up crew!
Why cats shouldn’t be allowed access to advanced weaponry
Holy crap, Derek Boogaard, dead at 28. No declared cause at the moment.
Lejon: I saw “Thor” last Sunday. I kind of liked it, too.
Solid flick. Good characterization. Effects were not bad.
I give it 2 mouth corners up.

I so want a couple of bottles of that when it comes out.
I can’t quite see. It’s like things are blurry from my right eye.
Chameleons are amateurs:
Cuttlefish are not cuddly at all.
Not pink? I’m so confused.
Maybe they could change their Image if they got voice coached by Johnny Depp..
An alternative review of Portal 2:
Judging from the comments, a few conole haters out there..
So I have been so busy that I didn’t do much work on this but I am in the Path to Progress walk tomorrow for the American Brain tumor Association.
I didn’t go hardcore into finding donations. I am just taking donations from family, and Hugh and I, with me.
But its a great cause, they were and still are an amazing organization that helped Hugh and I tremendously. It was through them we found the clinical trial that saved Hughs life. They do incredible, amazing work.
I didn’t make a page for my walk or anything, this is just personal This is just me wanting to walk for Hugh and for his recovery. But I owe it to the ABTA to ask for donations.
If anyone could help at all, it is a really important cause, and they are an amazing organization. Brain tumors are the cancer they know the least about. It is also quickly becoming one of the top cancers that are killing children. If you could of seen the kids in the same treatment program as Hugh.
This is the link just to donate to the organization itself.
The event is tomorrow and I don’t know how long they keep up the donate to the event link, but here it is:
Good luck with the walk tomorrow hugh-n-dre!
Yea hugh-n-dre !
Glad to help.
Glad to see you back on your feet!
Thanks peeps! 🙂 the walk was awesome. I did the walk on my own, Hugh isn’t up for a 5k yet, next year he wants to do it.
Met amazing people along the way. Talked with and photographed so many people. Going to sit here now and sort through my photos. By the end of the walk I had to introduce like 100 people to Hugh :). The outpouring of excitement for his story was amazing. I even met a little girl who was in the same clinical trial Hugh was in, with equally amazing success. Took a great picture of her with Hugh I need to find.
I am so far behind. I’m still working on last week’s comments.
Belated congratulations on your anniversary Ess & Sly Bees.
The interview with Linda Perry is mildly irritating. It felt disrespectful, to me, asking about a dead relationship and then compounding it by asking about REALLY old history as if it were current. I would’ve gotten grumpy with him at that point, so kudos to Linda for staying cool.
CW: Endgame episode 7
Still loving this show.
Looks like one of the hackers from X-files is in this episode.
Van, I haven’t heard you talk about this one – what is it?
Although tortured soul solving crimes is hardly new, this one has got under my skin.
In pointless news I finally updated to Firefox 4. Why do programmers feel the need to rearrange the interface every couple of years? It screws with my mind relearning everything, it’s like going out and switching all the qwerty keyboards to dvorak.
For those who don’t know about the dvorak keyboard:
However, I would advise extreme caution when using the Kevorkian Keyboard.
What is with the cold weather? Brr!
Instead of planting tomatoes and chilis, we’ll be catching up on The Borgias and staying warm.
Bye bye V.
Is V cancelled? Poor Marc Singer.
Yeah, poor MS!
I’m glad though, it was a bit naff.
Just got back from running one of our Relay for Life fundraisers. We did pretty well, though we still need to sell off the rest of the stuff. All in all, it was a good, but busy day.
Very admirable, ditto! What stuff?
Garage sale, bake sale, and book sale. Lots and lots of books.
CC: Shrimp, artichokes, wild rice
Well, we got caught up with Harry Potter tonight. I must admit, I had forgotten a lot of the details from the last book. Still, the movie, while very very long, seemed to have a certain soulessness to it. While the actors are all competent enough, the movie just doesn’t seem as compelling to me as the book did. Though, this seems to be something the whole movie series has suffered from for me.
I believe the movie series is more enjoyable when you haven’t read the books. I agree completely with what you said here. The books have a depth that all of the movies lacked.
I stopped watching after the 4th movie, I think.
I want a t-shirt that says “water is my favorite chemical”
I want a t-shirt that says “Osh Kosh, B’Gosh”.
I think they only make them out of denim though..
Good morning, parachute pants.
My scifi viewing update:
Hugh and I made the grave error last night of trying to watch Green Hornet. The most unlikable superhero EVER. It was awful. Watched about half of it and turned it off.
Current season of Dr Who gets a big fat: EH
There is something missing there, plus seriously how many times does Rory have to come to the brink of death?
While we were in San Fran, Hugh’s brother purchased one of those Roku streaming players. Do you all know about these? I am pretty impressed with it actually.
hope everyone is having a good weekend
I enjoyed the Gaiman episode, even if the plot was formulaic, the banter between the TARDIS in human form and the Doctor was fun.
Yep. It made up for the previous episode.
It was better … but still something missing.
Like K-9? Tom Baker?
A speckled hen?
CP: All Roads Lead Home — Golden State
Awesome new GLSEN ad:
that is pretty good EssBee.
Life is funny
i spent all afternoon brewing beer, only to choose a wine to go with the spaghetti I’m making tonight.
What were we brewing?
Dubbel, my 2nd attempt. The first attempt failed when a temp drop caused my yeast to crash prematurely and I couldn’t get ’em working again.
mmmmmm … fill my eyes, with that Dubbel vision!
Just got to watch the TARDIS incarnate episode tonight. While I once scorned the super silliness that Dr. Who brings to the table so often, of late I’ve come to embrace it and appreciate the stories that they turn into.
This was was silly and poignant at the same time.
Well he did use incarnate, that sort of word usage has a way of turning heads…
Alright, finally did my recording to pay my hockey gambling debt. Probably won’t make your ears bleed, but may put you to sleep.
CW: Farscape ep 1
2 things really bug me about the beginning.
1. Slingshot maneuver: NASA has been using this trick for decades, so why the hell did he need to test it.
2. Why was he not in spacesuit. Considering the size of his capsule and that it was a prototype he should be eearing more than a jumpsuit and football helmet.
I fear you need to stop watching scifi shows and just watch the NASA newsfeed.
I tried it, there weren’t enough muppets.
Although there were plenty on C-SPAN.
but they all sounded like these guys:
funny in searching for that pic “sesame street Muppet yep” I got this in the results:
I keep trying to find the “Like” button next to people’s comments on this page. Though, with this group, I suppose I’d break my mouse having to click that much.
I dunno know Ed, it’s a slippery slope to POKEs and sucking lolipops..
Morning, DP! I’m back to the real world today – vacation is over. I’m betting Evil, Inc. remains evil.

btw MORNING PAN!!!!!!!

CP: Nobody’s Fault But Mine — Page & Plant
Slept in this morning, then did a bunch of errands. Now I guess it’s time to do some actual work.
I’m trying to decide if I was insulted or complimented this weekend. I had a programming meeting yesterday. I put out cookies for everybody. One of the girls asked where I bought my cookies because she was going shopping and figured she’d pick some up while out.
Bought!!!! BOUGHT!!!! Really? I assumed everybody knew me well enough to know I don’t buy cookies. So should I be insulted because my cookies tasted store bought or not?
TEB: I think you should feel flattered that she liked your cookies that much. I also think you should feel sorry for her since she can’t tell the difference.
Hockey predictions? I think Vancouver got over its first round jitters, so I think we’ll get a Vancouver vs Tampa Bay final.
Anyone but the Cafucks. I’m thinking Vancouver/Boston final
That has to be the name of our second album!
Yeah!!!!!!!!!!! Boom chakka!
*bored at Sky Harbor*
The final nail has been put in the coffin for Ebert’s “games are not art” argument:
Ebert hasnt been credible for over a decade. He gave Thor 1 1/2 stars for fucks sake. To me, Thor was the best Marvel film since the first Iron Man – by far.
I know. He loved Boob Raider. He gave it 3 stars.
The next door neighbour is getting his roof redone. I wonder if the workers can turn their radio up any louder?
Off the jet plane… starving.
Enjoyed the show, Jack!
Today’s woot shirt is made of win
Fascinating. I didn’t even look into the nuts-n-bolts of this, but I’m intrigued:
Oooh… I should learn video editing.
I’ve been wanting to “fix” a few movies for some time now.
New toy has arrived.
So it’s sayonara to old netbook, hello amd fusion gooey goodness.
You just know iTunes library transferral is going to be a bitch.
Yeah, but it’ll be worth it. Congrats on the new tou, Van
In today’s news, most of town destroyed in fire. http://www.edmontonjournal.com/news/third+Slave+Lake+destroyed+massive+wildfire+mayor+says/4790689/story.html
Insulting two companies with one strip! Aweseome!
Supertramp is coming to Calgary. Should I be happy or sad?
I believe they’ll update “Breakfast in America” to “Back Bacon at Timmy’s”.
that’s the logical thing to do.
Xena, the Amazona queena.
I am on a quest to DREAM the impossible DREAM…..
9 dimensional cube, that should keep you busy for a while..
I keep rolling n.
I really have to applaud BioWare leading the way in creating RPGs.
That’s great, now if they’d just impliment the hi-poly penis.
And BTW, Claudine is freed from moderation purgatory. Thanks, Claudine!
I’m gonna go get Starbucks now.
Coconut mocha frappe. I don’t care how much it costs or how sick it makes me dangnabbit! It’s delicious!
Why oh why so PC makers install so much crap on new PCs.
I feel a grrrr coming on:
Welcome to our little corner of the Internet, Claudine!
^ wot he said
I want it to be Christmas.
Logically, Christmas should be in May anyway.
Because the whole Christmas thing has always been based on logic *rolls eyes*
Actually, it has… from a Catholic perspective.
Logically, if you want to convert a bunch of non-Christians to Christianity, you make a holiday near enough to another major calendar event… oh, I don’t know, like the Winter Solstice… and you pimp up just how your god is better than whatever anyone else is worshipping at the moment, and back it up with heavy armies with swords. Works like a charm. Very logical… from a certain point of view.
I’ve heard that before, Obi Wan. 😉
Like squabs through the looking glass, so are the ducks of our lives.
I’m just realizing that “Days of our Lives” is no longer on the air. The joke in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure is erased from the face of pop-culture hilarity.
‘Tis is a sad time we live in.
Who will be their guiding light? Truly, dark shadows have fallen.
As my stomach churns.
So, the Doctor and Sexy Thing have been an item for a while…
CW: Game of Thrones episode 5
Blood n Guts
Damn mowing the church yard is bitch, 60 degree slope in spots is a killer. ‘Course it doesn’t help that I’m out of shape like a wad of playdo.
Beware the slippery slope.
It drags you down the spiral.
… er, that has nothing to do with Claudine BTW.
Unless … IT DOES !!!!
Ambiguously Gay Duo:
What’s Up WIth That w/ Lindsey:
Also, I am happy to report that the new Stevie Nicks album is like Charlie Sheen – a winner. I do love Stevie.
Christmas is just fine where it is – a reasonable distance away on the calendar from my kids birthdays 🙂
Also too, hiya Claudine! Bring the estrogen – believe me, we need it.
Wha’cya talkin’ ’bout, Willis?
Yeah this yeah!
Are you suggesting this?
I think this one can only work if they can bring back the actress who played the role in Warehouse 13
Van and anyone else watching Game of Thrones:
In an unspoilery way:
What do you think of what the hell they did with Remly and Loras Tyrell?!
I haven’t read the books Essbee so can’t really comment…also I find the character names rather forgettable so I’m not even sure what you are talking about.
CD: Traquair House Ale
A delicious scotch ale, with lots of caramel and sugar in the aroma and taste nicely balanced by carbonation and hops. No hint that is clocks in at 7.2% ABV. I highly recommend it for anyone who likes malty beers.
What a bunch of GEEKS!
But where is the B5 poster for the ISS?
“Last month, Avery Brewing announced it was exiting eight states and seven partial state markets. The move ended contracts with 17 distributorships and cut off about $1 million in sales, Avery said. ”
Damn, I’d heard that Avery was going to stop distributing to Oklahoma, I was hoping it was an exaggerated rumor. To be fair I can understand why they are dong it, and I’m glad they’re having such success, but damnit I want my beer!
Sorry for all the grumbling I’ve been doing lately, I didn’t mean to seem so constantly negative.
As a current grumbler myself, I can’t really complain. Gripe, grouse,and grumble all you want.
Sorry. Couldn’t hear you over my whining.
This thread: winning. 🙂
Deadpan is sometimes grumbleland, LR. I believe in a healthy venting process, so no worries here. Vent as needed.
Flying Hamster (iPad version as well) goes free for a few days:
Don’t let the cute graphics fool you though…it’s old skool difficulty shoot-them-up.
Haha, Van. Fair enough about the names. I’ll have to wait for Ed to see the show to rant on about this.
Yeh, this is pretty cool!
CP: One Year Of Love — Queen
I’d like to note, LostRalph, that I’ve reviewed all of your posts and found very little grumbling. I don’t know what you are talking about..
You know how to reach me! 😉
Caught up, finally. =) Now, I have to figure out how badly Van’s choice is going to embarrass me.
Remember, NS, you don’t have to sing this time around. There are other options.
Summer Palooza survey link:
You know, if HH gets the vote I hope we can have a group discussion…there’s a lot to discuss.
One ping only, Vasili. 😉
One Ping Vasilli is the name of our first album!
Reminds me of the coworker who got stopped at the border and told he wasn’t allowed to enter Canada.
I wonder how international travel is handled within the EU, it seems like that might be a good model to follow.
It’s treated as if there are no borders, though France is annoyed with Italy right now about that.
CP: Robots — Dan Mangan
w00t for Mangan!
Wow those are some scary big tumbleweeds, no wonder everyone is so quiet.
oops that was not meant to be a reply…
Jack, did ya see the links? Did ya?
*hears only the lonely wind*
Sorry to hear that Lo.
Depending on how generous DirecTV is feeling, I might get to catch up with Game of Thrones this summer. Looks like they are offering three months of the movies channels for free as part of the move program. I may have HBO come June.
Without spoiling the books, can I guess that the HBO version has merged some characters together? With as big as Martin’s cast is in the books, it seems they’d have to cull some out and merge some together.
I’m about four hours of audio away from finishing the fourth book. This one has been a struggle, though not so much for the narrator as for the massive amounts of wheel spinning.
Ed, not exactly merged characters together, no. We’ll have to skype when you watch.
Loving the Grand Canyon Starry Night Stout.
Especially while sitting at the rim of the Grand Canyon.
Still got no GoT here. Ed.
EssBee, yes! That AGD is beyond hilarious. Colbert and Carrell FTW.
Hmmm, I may buy my first ebook on the iBooks store today.
I’d advise you to sit as I ponder this.
Why from iBooks instead of [insert random alternative]?
The book is a collection of short stories and only available on the Kindle, Nook, or iBooks stores.
Don’t own a kindle or Nook (yes I know they have apps for IOS devices), so iBooks it is.
I installed the free Kindle software for PC on my laptop so I could buy a copy of “Blood Is Red.” I like both the short story collection and the software so far. My only complaint is that scrolling down shows the next page and hides all of the text from the previous page; you can’t display arbitrary areas of the text, like in Word.
The people who run Interzone seem to have a thing for JS at the moment, and I’ve enjoyed JS stories I’ve read in INTERZONE.
Now I’m no Apple fan boy, but I tend to read ebooks on my phone rather than iPad, and iBooks for me has the best way of displaying the text on the small screen.
Morning! My work laptop has some kind of horrible virus – should be a very non-productive, waiting on helpdesk, irritating kind of day.
Van, go for it!
Oh, and CRW: The Wire S3 finale
The Standings so far are:
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 – Done!!
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
Rhettro Sings Grateful Dead – Estimated Prophet
Third round still going on.
According to my work computer, I no longer have access to the off-site hard drive. I wonder if that means I can start my long weekend early.
I have complained in the past about my state getting in the news for dumb stuff.
Now my town has to get in on the act:
and you are not reading that wrong the like says “topnews” and FRONTPAGE
That’s what I call a slow news day.
The number of cameras was awesome.
The worsted part is it actually wasn’t a slow news day. The morons in my town think we care about this. Way more important things didn’t even make the paper. When that McDonald’s was re-built he was interviewed and when he hit some large number of days in a row he was front page news. The art show and band concert at the high school where more important and they didn’t make the paper.
I guess they think out claim to fame is that idiot.
*yells at the paper*
COVER SOMETHING IMPORTANT!!!! I CAN”T HAVE AN OPINION ON SOMETHING I DON’T KNOW IS HAPPENING
*offers up soap box*
anyone need this?
*hang head again*
on a lighter note:
just needed to clear my head. now for more tea
Sweet. Pintly is now on Android and iPhone. Now I’m more likely to use it.
Still doesn’t support offline saving of recommendation and wishlist though.
CP: Bloodclot — Rancid
Rooster Teeth’s take on Mass Effect relationships. lol
The news media wasn’t here when I ate my 100,000th Grape Nut. 🙁
Does that correspond to your 10,000th bowel movement?
Wait? Was that too much information?
I knew I should have said Rice Krispies.
that only takes 2 bowls doesn’t it?
there was a press conference for that guy also. and it was important enough to make the local radio podcast.
*hangs head yet again*
CP: Old Spice Remix — Mike Relm
This a remix of the tune used in the Excalibur movie?

CP: She Has A Girlfriend Now — Reel Big Fish
I’m not sure how she did it but somehow my Boo convinced me she needed a new desk for her new apartment. Not only did we go desk hunting but I then spent a couple of hours helping her move stuff from her old place to her new
I’m afraid I don’t get this at all:
But I do appreciate Brad P. mentioning me.
What makes a boat deadpan quality?
I got the reference, but it took me a few seconds.
The connection is that Deadpan is the MF way.
Well, DirecTv loves us. As part of the “please don’t leave us when you move to a new home” program, we’ve got HBO comped for the next three months. We’ve recorded all the Game of Thrones episodes that have aired thanks to the On Demand connection. But, since we have to get the kids well to sleep before watching, it will probably take us a week or so to get caught up.
Ooh, three books for two credits sale at Audible. I’ll have to see if the set they’re offering to pick from has anything good.
I smell vaguely of chocolate orange.
This is what happens when you over indulge on sweets bought for Xmas.
That’s Xmas 2010..I’m a slow eater.
Fuck yeah how good it gets.
Oh you know!!!
We’ve missed you around here.
Missed again! 😉
Youre just not trying hard enough!
Ah, I love this one. Had to share it with a friend on Facebook, and you guys deserve to enjoy it, too:
Ah, Three Dead Trolls in a Baggie. I love their stuff.
Warmish night out there, yet a bit cool for skinny dipping.
With a rock band.
And some nurses on strike.
Yeah, too cold for something like that…
Looks like I killed with that one.
