Daylight come and I wanna go home…

Well, who wouldn’t?
I’ll be in my bunk
CJ said: “It sucks that it doesn’t suck. It should suck better”
OK, now your just doing it on purpose
Yes, she is.
a call back to the last comment?
And of course tinkerbell sucks in the good way.
Why do I not recall saying those things at all?
OK, Tegan and Sara – Back in Your Head is now one of my favorites, possibly because their accents (which I really like) are quite prominent. Pretty sure it was Lo Pan hyping them that turned me on to them. Thanks.
A couple of their songs definitely burrow into your mind.
They are quite the wonderful!
which do you think is their best album to start with?
I’d start with Sainthood or The Con. Both are their strongest albums. Both are filled with great songs. You should check out their first “proper” album as well, “This Business of Art”. Its much more funk and rock n roll. Quite different and quite good.
I have owned “This Business of Art” since I heard them on CBC while traveling the northern shores of the lakes back in 2002…
Phragmocone is my new favorite random biology word.
Hey Deadpan. There’s a new episode. Go figure.
There won’t be any show notes. Hubby and I are off to Canmore for the day. It’s a little place in the mountains. Nice place to go walking.
that place looks amazing! hope you have a good time!
*Sigh* I remember Canmore… Been at least 21 years since I’ve been there, though. Ditto for the Kananaskis and the mountain parks.
Avoid the belemnoids…
In response to LR…
Good job bunny!
I bet this makes Steve Buscemi very happy. 🙂
That picture is all around full of win
I’m pretty sure this is the same model. Buscemi & Pac Man.
she can no longer say:
“Hay, My eyes are up here”
Its funny, cause when people look me in the eye I always say, “Hey, my penis is down here”
lmfao @ EssBee
Nice singing job.
It’s Deadpan day! Better get to a downloadin.

jOE, loved your segment.
*Holds up lighter*
(he would so dig the Deadpan if he’d just give it a chance)
Shit, there’s a new Deadpan to listen to…!
Thank ya, ditto!
Lo Pan, did you just turn Used Hair on “up there”?
MY PENIS IS DOWN HERE!
I also enjoyed EssBee’s song. Laughed quite a few times. 🙂
Essbee’s song was definitely mirth inducing. 🙂
Curiously, not unlike Lo Pan’s penis.
This Business of Art is excellent. The Con is excellent. Sainthood is excellent.
And now I must be off. Mwah.
I must be off too, not that I have anywhere to go. I’m just “off.”
I’m NAKED for JESUS!
Well yes you are!
*eyes bob up and down*
Rhett tends to be the “more off”, I tend to be the moron.

are you ganging up on Lo Pan too?
Hey, his joystick is down there!

maybe my Ex’s daughter (my daughter?) will see it with me before it goes out of the theaters.
Off to see it tomorrow, I think I shall have to pop some pro plus as part 1 made me feel sleepy.

A beautiful sight for Left Hand Brewery fans like me.
Now just hope that the St Vrain river doesn’t swallow the entire building! The rain here has been kinda impressive.
If it does I’m going on a roadtrip with a crane.

Ralph, beer question:
why sometimes does extra hoppy beer, especially dry-hopped beer, have a strong marijuana nose?
CD: Port Brewery Hop-15 Double IPA = my penis is UP there
because Harry Hops and Mary Jane Marijuana are cousins. Or so I’ve heard.
Dry hopping will emphasize the floral/grassy aromatics from the hops so that is why you will get it more from a dry hopped beer. Also any heavily hopped beer will probably have alot of late addition hops so again the volatile aromatics are preserved into the beer.
Good answer! “grass” ier
Which makes sense because dry humping will emphasize assy aromatics from the bops.
Certainly explains why I get the munchies…
You’ll probably find that it is the same 5 or so hop strains. Off the top of my head I can’t say which are grassier.
I’ll take that back, thankyouverymuch
assy aromatics! munchies!
Thank you everyone 🙂
Just came home from seeing Harry Potter.. fucking amazing it was. Highly recommended if you are a fan of the books/movies. They changed many things from the book but it all made sense, and made it into an incredible movie that stands well on its own.
Going to go get ready to celebrate my birthday with my inlaws and Hugh
Yea !!!!! Happy Dre Day!!!
I just got back from seeing “Super 8”.
It was fun enough but I definitely saw the whole “ET – Reboot” thing.
It did leave me feeling kind of uncomfortable that we can’t just tell that story any more. Now, we have to take that story and make it very, intensely violent … or apparently no one would even notice.
I don’t think that says anything good about who we’ve become as a society since the original ET.
In other news, My rain gauge says we had 1.8 inches of rain while I was at the theater. 1 inch of that fell in a 15 minute period! I’ll bet that was something to see.

After listening to this weeks episode..Synchronocity on Stan Freberg references.
Well Pan, off to see the final HP film, woe is me and all that funk.
Doing my morning “due diligence” and ran across this article on cheaper options then Netflix.
It’s a “FWIW” sort of thing.
I guess I’m the guy he’s complaining about but it just sounds like whining to me.
“Its culture can be oppressive”
Yeah thats why craft breweries around here will more often than not bend over backwards to help each other as opposed to the opposite.
I can understand some of his complaints about beer geeks, but in my (limited) experience bars won’t go into detail unless you ask them. His example night sounds like they went out to have a bad time, or were trying to seem more interested and knowledgeable than they actually were about the less mainstream beers.
Well he writes an article called “The Contrarian” for fucks sake. I think your idea about them going out to find a bad time is correct
Damn hipsters, let’s agree to call him a dick and go enjoy a barrel aged beer Lo.
Done AND done, good sir LR
Me too! 🙂
Here’s a guy who is just fine with what ever mass produced, fermented grain based beverage is put in front of him and dammit!!!! Why can’t everyone else just like it too?
The funny thing is … until about three years ago I had come to the conclusion that I really didn’t like beer. Oh, I’d drink it if I was at a party and that is all they had … or I was in a bar with friends and all they had was Miller/bud/coors … but it was just a means to get a buzz on. I didn’t actually “like” the taste.
Then I found out beer could taste GOOD.
So this guy is whining that if I want to drink beer I should just suck it up, be a man and stop trying to actually ENJOY the flavor.
I’m sure he hates Baskin Robbins as well.
I’m not here again. Off to the Military Museum today (http://www.themilitarymuseums.ca/). Hubby is into WW2. I blame Flames of War.
Seems ya have a wee bet of a theft problem at that there museum.

This is a great beer objectively speaking, and I find myself liking it despite my personal tastes. My problem is the use of so much piney hops it almost blows out my taste buds, but that is a common issue with IPAs for me. The other thing is that I cannot detect oak anywhere in this beer, which makes me think it’s overpowered by the hops.
In all other respects this is a great beer with a strong hop aroma and flavor, nicely balanced to make it perfectly drinkable.
Thank Lo Pan for recommending it.
Funny cause I CAN taste the Oak. Then again if I tend to drink more IPA’s than you do regularly it may explain why its not masked to me. I do see your point about the pine
yeah, I guess I’m sensitive to the pine aspects maybe even hypersensitive. I pass on drinking most IPAs a second time for that reason.
Yeah. In the grand scheme of beer, IPA’s and PA’s are often 3rd or 4th on the list of what I’ll pick up. But on a hot ass summer night, sometimes theyre just what the brewmaster ordered
and here’s the other side of the coin I love APA’s and EPA’s I happily drink 6 packs of those beers.
And now dear deadpanites we come to the main beer event for me this evening. Oh if you see the joy and love shining from my eyes as I gaze upon this beautifully simple bottle. I speak of the mistress of ale who started my interest in saisons, and who has forsaken me for about a year and a half. All the way from the tank of delicious libation at the Boulevard Brewery I type of no other than the limited release Saison with Brettanomyces.
Let the deliciousness begin. :biggrin:
Well I may have oversold it a little bit to myself, but still a damn tasty beer.
This saison pours a cloudy gold with a big white head. It has an aroma of citrus with an underlying scent of hay-like funk. This continues into a flavor of strong bitter citrus, supported by a hint of that funkiness I mentioned earlier. It is a very dry ale, which combined with the high carbonation makes it seem to evaporate off your tongue, and thirsty for another drink.
I recommend it to others who enjoy saisons, or are interested in the wilder side of beers. Let it warm slightly out of the fridge, this will let the malt come forward slightly and moderate the bitter hops, which seemed kind of harsh when colder.
So with those two beers added to Pintly I now I have only 2 IPAs in my top 5 recommended beers. This brings me a fair amount of amusement, I think I’m actually smiling.
Or it might just be the beers.

It’s actually really nice out today. We went shopping and realized it’s not so bad. Good thing too because I gotta go hook up the new sprinklers in the backyard.
It’s been an ugly month so far, but fortunately–knock on wood–nothing truly bad has happened. A good friend had an extremely close call in Iraq, but that, really, has been the worst of it. Instead, it has been stress, stress, stress.

World Cup observation of the day: How many times does the US team need to shoot at goal before they actually get one in?
Damn they are playing well but they need to start getting some points to show for it. Not that Japan is playing poorly. The US are not missing goals because the Japan team is defending well. They keep aiming at the goal posts or over it.
Also our goalie/keeper Solo is swoon-worthy
Not that I watch womens soccer/football for the eye candy mind you. That is what the NBA is for.

well played, Japan. Well played.
Into overtime we go

Catching the end now. Pretty awesome.
1-0 after 2 each in kicks. Scary
score is 2-2 after 30 min overtime
its down to penalty kicks
Japan got 1 in
I can’t watch
Almost over for USA.
Japan wins on kicks.
they deserved it 🙁
I don’t think USA had their hearts in it at the end. It kind of showed.
Agreed. They started out strong and then lost it.
Hope lost her steam big time. boo! 🙁 but I don’t feel bad about Japan. They certainly plated very well.

I finally got my own place. I didn’t outfit it with ducts.
I have always been secretly saddened.
loved? so what happened to make that in the past tense?
Do the Brits not speak with such a colloquialism?
Maybe a regional thing, I would have said ‘I love that movie’ if I still liked the movie.
In truth … I’ve not seen it in many years and I don’t know if it would leave me felling the same way now.
Seems like I have re-watched several favorites in the last few years that have left me thinking … “meh”.
“Baron Von Münchhausen” is one of those that I am afraid to re-watch.

I’m about about eight hours into the 49 hours. So far, I’m just not overwhelmed. I think the choice to break the “story” into two parallel books is going to prove a poor one. We shall see.
Felicia Day is going to be on Eureka. I think I’ll give it a try tonight.
Oh ditto…. jumping in right now to that show may not be the best of ideas.. its not like its an overly complex story arc but you may not get full enjoyment. Watch it tonite then I really do recommend starting from the beginning. Its good to have a lighthearted sci-fi show that you can just enjoy without having to put heart an soul into it. Great characters as well! (mostly)
I gave up during the 2nd season. I don’t plan on following it again, I just wanted to see what kind of character Felicia was going to play.
That’s too bad. Its one show on the air that there wasnt a reason to give up on.
And by this I just mean that theres so much bloated “we take ourselves so serious” bullshit on TV, combined with all the reality bullshit, its refreshing to have something like Eureka (and to a point Warehouse 13) to just be able to kick back and just enjoy a beer with.
Mid season 2 is when I gave up on it as well.
It just didn’t know what it wanted to be.
If it wanted to be all “X-Files” and creepy, I was down with that.
If it wanted to be all “tongue in check, wink wink nudge nudge” … I was okay with that too.
Problem was (for me at least) that one minute they’d be trying to build suspense and like “wow this is really bad … oh hell no, THAT GUY JUST GOT HORRIBLY KILLED!” and then in the next scene they’d be all “Oh, Wise guy! Nuck nuck nuck.” 3 stooges.
Their inability to pick one tone and stick with it, led to me not being able to “connect” with the show.
Eh. Never once felt that tho. To me, after the first season, it knew exactly what it wanted to be which was single episode adventures (if you will) with an overall arc that would come into play once in a while, much like X-Files. Plus I’d rather have a show that has serious one minute and “nuck nuck” the next. Life isnt always one tone. No reason shows have to be. Its what inevitably killed BSG for me. Way too dark all the time with a sudden “bright” ending. No thanks.
But thats neither here nor there. Personal preference is, by definition, just that.
I’ve had a love/hate relationship with Eureka, but Felicia just gave me a reason to watch, love her character.
Funny cause I have a love/hate relationship with Felicia. :). Usually meh.
What? Love/Hate Felicia? That tears it. Time for another avatar change.
I really dont have the geek love for her that everyone else does. I’ve never understood it… but its never been my call to question others love for her.
On the annoying side, I’m having internet problems at home, so the cable repair guy is coming over tomorrow. That will be just oooodles of fun. And I’ve learned that the last plumber installed our frost free outdoor tap wrong. Looks like it’s a trip to the hardware store for me.
I’m about about eight hours into the 49 hours. So far, I’m just not overwhelmed. I think the choice to break the “story” into two parallel books is going to prove a poor one. We shall see.
No, dammit, this isn’t a duplicate comment!
Well, apparently it is now……damn you, FTB!
I feel a play-by-play coming on. Who’s ready?
I am, I’m ready how about this one
the netflix description
The age of dreadnought warfare returns with a vengeance when a radical paramilitary group launches a super-advanced modern battleship. With no other options, the last U.S. battleship available — the U.S.S. Iowa — steams out to oppose the supership.
Didn’t the title nit give you a clue Netflix had buggered up bigtime?
-I +o you damn bot!
I’m feeling one of those long dark teatimes of the soul coming on.
*Blows bubble pipe*
What’s bugging you jack?
School girl uniforms and lockers.
she’s just a teenage slut
You picked a dirty movie on purpose!
And immediately I’m watching a dirty movie with Ralph.
A stack of exercise mats makes for a good bed…
No matter what they’re going to finish
There are police outside and she says, “Don’t stop, Mr. Underwood!”
I’m not sleeping in the wet spot!
So far, no battleshipt.
Red and green cheerleader uniforms and dirty dirty dirty old men teachers!
when did this become an educational video on how to a dirty old man?
Danger is everywhere my friend.
What’s with the guy with the dog and a purse?
And this teenager who really wants to diddle her teacher… he’s not even a good looking teacher.
ooh the man on TV is talking about politics. Now maybe we’ll get somewhere.
“it’s not an orgy, nobody wants to lick your body”
Well you might be a dirty old man who should keep his hands off his students
Must be the only school uniform that includes short skirts for the girls
The old chick (appropriately aged for the lead dude) needs to read “He’s Just Not that into You.”
“just open the door and give me a cuddle”
I’ll give you a cuddle baby
Is this a play-by-play comment?
Stay on Target, Ralph, Stay on Target.
Hmm.. Maybe she’ll finally get some when they locate the battleship?
Yeah those 2 are hiding their relationship from everyone else.
Some of the kids in this movie have goofy, weird eyes. And it’s interesting that all the characters have English accents, but the TV show they are watching doesn’t.
I can spot wood under his raincoat from a mile away.
“I hope I’m not late”
what have you been doing young lady that you’d be late?
Electronic torture machines…
This chick is hardcore.
“We can’t just be spectators can we?”
The phone is a pay phone on the wall with a drawer? Like.. it’s like part desk, part phone, and it hangs on the wall.
Have to be safe when delivering to a school that’s why he has all that padding.
And now we’re in the matrix with randomly delivered phones. The battleship should be showing up soon.
So pseudo-fedex delivers the teacher a package and it’s ringing and there’s a box in the bag and a phone in the box, but it’s a mobile phone and the teacher has no idea how to answer it, so a kid runs up and answers it for him. What’s up with that?
There are ethnically variations of people about and they are on a van-bus.. van-pool? mysterious man with dog and purse..
Battleship must be just around the corner… behind the girl wearing a tube top as a skirt.. with a slit up the side.
Greg apparently doesn’t remember all the women he’s slept with.
The guy is getting trim all over town from good looking ladies, what the hell is doing dreaming of jailbait?
I’d like to note that Ralph just asked me if the main character’s name is Greg…
I pointed him to the movies title Gregory’s Two Girls
Cut to scene of 50 women in red lab coats building PCs
Then the man with the purple shirt and purple tie says, “Well, there’s many definitions of sterie, Greg”
The super battleship must be hidden in the guy’s bag
“I’m a teacher, your’re a pupil. This is a park!”
Have to cover all the basics.
Awww Mr. Underwood is gonna comfort Frances…
Greg needs to stop trying to smell her hair if he’s comforting her
“You have to feel young to feel that ache.”
yeah, this guy needs her to feel His ache.
Oh look, Greg’s sister is dating a pretentious asshole. Maybe he knows something about the battleship.
The battleship must be hidden in the dead river.
and yet he’s wearing a black and white houndstooth turtleneck with a blue.. jacketvest?
I take issue with that. Kinda too distracting and ugly to focus on what he’s saying.
Big important guy stole a pen from the UN.
“You’re not just paranoid”
“Let’s get active. It’s an American phrase.”
Doug has Mr. Bill on the back of his jacket. I’m sure of it.
“Hey Doug. Get lost. I wanna blow the teacher.”
Disclaimer: I may have made that quote up.
I thought it was a good paraphrase of the dialogue
Her dad is like 5 feet tall.
“Read this and eat it and don’t go near Frances” <— Doug really said this.
It said "Badgers"
Badgers? We don’t need no stinkin’ badgers!
The secret paper says “Badgers”
we don’t need no stinkin’ badgers.
Awww we’re so in sync.
“There are people who’d like to get their hands on those badgers.”
Badger’s are a vivid experience, especially close up.
Note to self: Do not put a wet wad of paper in your pants and then say you’re excited about something.
“I’ve never seen Frances’ beaver”
Slip of the tongue?
Considering he teaches English you’d think he would be better at bullshitting.
“Scottish beaver are a very exotic creature”
oh? is this movie Scottish.. I think I was told that when the movie started.
“An Olympic slip of the tongue!” LOL
If ya’all have never heard Ralph laugh… it’s like so incredibly awesome. I think that’s the best part of this movie.
“What could you offer a wee lassie other than confusion”
Apparently Greg needs to get himself a ‘popsy’ …
maybe a popsy will help Gregory slay his dragon
The headmaster says that ‘badger and young beaver are out of season as of now’
Still no battleship.
The U.S.S. Iowa is nowhere to be seen in this Scottish locale…
The guy with the dog is an activist and Frances brought him home..
Wonder if she used her tube top miniskirt as bait.
I wanna know why his right hand is so sore.
I think there’s a whole subplot that I’m not grasping here.
But the dog is cute.
The dog slobber adds flavor to the chips.
Whenever Greg doesn’t wanna do something he says, “No. I need a bath. I need a bath.”
I’m totally going to start using that.
“You need to start connecting”
he’s already in trouble for almost connecting with Frances.
“stop talking like comic book heroes. this is real. this is dangerous.”
So are they going to get a book on beavers and badgers while they are in the library?
:private comment that only Ralph can see:
A double-walled shower stall… maybe he can get his bath.
Oh shit, it’s a bit confining. Good thing his phone rang.
So why do all the notes in the lab look like they are printed power point slides.
Bloody fingernails. Make it stop!!! Is this modern warfare?
“The throbbing has stopped…”
Frances helped relieve the pressure.
“has sado-masochism got a hyphen?”
“I’m not flipping you the middle finger, it just looks that way.”
yeah sure, as if that wasn’t the reason you left it unbandaged.
“It’s called human contact”
Is that what the adults are calling it these days.
I think Bell and Gregory are gonna do “it”
he needs a roadmap it looks like. Maybe she should have worn that dress first.
He’s a terrible kisser. I can see it from here. Good gawd.. open your mouth, man!
“Let’s have a few good times before we get dewy-eyed.”
Isn’t that supposed to work the other way around?
train going into a tunnel, and the guy is asleep
They were bouncing though … like they were on a washing machine. I could enjoy that.
Really not getting why all the girls are so hot for this guy. He’s a doofus who doesn’t know how to enjoy human contact, he kisses like a frog…
I thought a frog would use more tongue.
It is called french kissing after all /bad joke
Look at all the starving donkeys (I totally said that with a Scottish accent FYI)
ominous music it must be time for the battleships to fight.
I wonder if they’ll yell “You sunk my battleship at the end.”
The thieves are wearing Dominos delivery jackets?
So he had to shag for the car, and still caught up with the moving van.
“I know where we’re going. If I’m wrong, I’ll eat Miss Jordan’s tapes.”
Apparently that’s the only thing of Miss Jordan he’ll be eating.
He’s have to learn to use his tongue first.
She has to do something
no not that you dirty old man
I don’t understand. If there are only 11 minutes left… where are the battleships?
Have I been duped?
“not a badger in sight”
But is there a battleship?
“No more solos, duets from now on… “
Hey, a boat!! A boat!!!
And finally Grag and Frances kiss
“I had to do it”
I wonder if Greg needs a bath?
Grag always seems to need a bath.
“I can kiss with my eyes open.”
Greg seems confused by that concept.
Good thing he took his watch off before he went to sleep with the teenager.
there are a lot of computers in the river, but no battleship.
And horrid closing music.
We want to protest by destroying the environment.
Thank you for the lovely movie, Ralph. You owe me a game of Battleship.
Not a single battleship in the entire movie, I’m offended that netflix lied to us.
Nope. No Battleship.
The sequel to ‘Gregory’s Girl’? if so you should check out the original if you can understand the accents…it’s a quaint coming of age take involving football.
Personally my fav Bill Forsyth film was his first ‘That Sinking Feeling’..
You broke the deadpan again CJ.
Hey, somebody had to do it.
I only stayed up through about 10 pages of the novel, Ed. Too sleepy. I’ll be interested in your review once we both finish – maybe we can discuss?
Sly B and I gave up on Eureka for a while, but came back last season and dig it. We both thought last week’s episode (the premier) of Warehouse 13 was very good too.
No, no, we are alive.
Now, where was that battleship? Did it end up on the cutting room floor by the editor?
Was it a euphemistic battleship?
Went to the Twins day game yesterday. After all the Metrodome years, quite the experience attending a game with a heat index of 112ºF. Plus instead of my usual shady seats, these were Dad’s premo 2-set a year seats about 16 rows back from the plate and in full sun.
We spent the 3-5 innings walking the shaded concourse around the park, watching from various spots (a big improvement over the dome, where you could see nothing but concrete hallway in there). After another inning in the sun, we moved up about 7 rows to seats, which were just getting into shade that someone had abandoned. Then we left an inning early to get on a slightly less packed train than the end of the game would have allowed.
And the Twins lost. Still quite the experience for previously dome-bound fans.
Opened a Spotify Account this morning.
it sounds intresting
Went downtown this morning. Came home and moved the cars. They are going to tear up my back yard today. I hope the workers are cute.
Quiet here today.
I think Deadpan has a case of the Mondays.
I believed I’d get my ass kicked sayin’ something like that.
glad I was wrong

CP: Superman’s Song – The Crash Test Dummies
So I just realized IMDB is really screwing up there ad’s
There was a picture of 2 people on the left and right of the content. One of those 2 actors I liked so I was wondering what movie she was going to be in. I tried to click on the picture or find anything that would say what movie she was in.
I have no attention span and want everything handed to me on a sliver platter so I gave up and forgot about looking all together.
ok, the last sentence isn’t true I did some digging and figured it out. anyone need a soap box?
I got out of bed. It’s a start. Now I’ll go to work.
don’t forget the coffee!
Another bee bites the dust today. Really, where are they coming from and how are they getting in?
You know I understand killing the eight legged fiends, but bees? The poor things are on the decline as it is.
Where bees come from:
A great big mommy bee meets a whole bunch of daddy bees and they decide to start a home together…
I just want you to know, I’m tired of staring at the stupid WWC program book. I wish someone else on the committee would edit it. A second set of eyes is easier than trying to find your own mistakes. bleh :blink:
Stupid contractor called. They are delayed a few hours and won’t be able to start on my back yard until after lunch. Humph.
So, no eye candy till later? poor bunny 🙂
I suppose I can just ask hubby to take his shirt off :blush:
My brain has another appointment with the meat tenderizer today. Wish me luck.
Good luck Jack! Have fun tenderizing your meat… ummmmm.
I seem to vaguely remember some Jr. High joke about not letting your meat loaf.
I’m not sure it was even funny then.
Alcohol is a good brain tenderizer.
Tuesday.. the seoond Monday of the week.
Oh nice avatar, Rhett. I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE
Aintchoo two ceeeeeeuuute
I like watching her eyebrows go up and down while she talks. LOL
“Rhett? Like Rhett Butler?”
Oh. So shes as clever as she is attractive…
*blocks Rhettro’s kicks and punches*
*did no see headbutt coming*
EYEBROWS ARE UP HERE!
My favorite is still the vid from BlizzCon when the fan asks her during a panel if the carpet matches the curtains. Her complete lack of understanding the expression was quite endearing…
I find her quirkiness entertaining, she should be a rising star as a comedic actress. I also like the woman who did the PSP phone commercials.
That’s Kristen Schaal. She does a shit ton of stuff. My wife and I also went to high school in Longmont with her. They were good friends for a while.
Yeah. They were on the debate team (it was called Forensics) and would travel around CO competing at different high schools. She’s pretty damn hi-larious. She’s great on Flight of the Conchords.
Have you read her book?
I personally havent but many I know have and I hear its wondertastic
It’s like all these people and Longmont.
I know, right?

Man that first murder in the lab was chilling.
Sweet. The first 4 parts of FMA:B are 64% off.
Oh I should start that from the beginning….
I’ve started rewatching the original series. I’m looking forward to rewatching this as well.
Matalo matalo, Bane Bane….
Soooooo the new Spiderman costume looks like a basketball.
adds a new spin to “playing some b-ball”
Outside of the school?
There’s got to be a “Spalding” logo on there somewhere.

I so just imagined you saying that in a C3PO voice…
Well I can do mean ZEN.
I got some news that’s going to cost me a few pennies. Last week my daughters’ car was rear-ended (that’s not the news). Her car is a 2001 nissan. The insurance company (of the other driver since it was his fault) decided it would be more to their advantage to write the car off then to repair it. Probably true, but since they never give the actual replacement cost of a vehicle that means mom (me) will be footing the difference between what the insurance company will give her and something to replace it. We find out tomorrow how much they are willing to offer.
Guess I’m going car shopping.
Good times. I believe I’ll be looking forward to a future of similar occurrences. As always, hopefully she’s ok. Bummer about the cost of the new car.
Money is so meh to me right now. I mean I did just get a raise, so that’s nice, but still… the amount of life that depends on the little green pieces of paper… frustrating.
You’re a good mommy, Bunny :wub: !
Public transport not an option for her?
Nope. She transports live reptiles for her job. I found two vehicles for around the $4,000 range and both the Lemon Aid buyers guide gave a “don’t buy” rating. I may have to increase her allowance. Sucks.
So Spider-Man is powerless against the Harlem Globetrotters?
Well the Mad Men inspired ‘The Hour’ starts in about 10 minutes…alas the review says that the writers chickened out and added a murder mystery.
Umm on BBC 2 and stars that English guy from The Wire…hopefully with a more believable accent this time.
I wonder if there was ever a time in the history of the UK when it didn’t look all a bit shite.
whipper snipper = weedwhacker = weedeater
Oh those crazy canucks, and aussies, they can think up some of the best names for things.
And obviously weedwhacker and weedeater are one word. Where’s your spelling from boy, some namby bamby northern school?
I’ve never heard of a Whipper Snipper but have a Weedwhacker.
Every time I send an email to DanS the Gmail interface it “suggests” that I include :jack: Mangan.
Does Gmail think that DanS and I need a chaperone?
Geez. A little privacy would be nice.
Always nice to check in on the comments and spot my disembodied head :jack:
Sexiest disembodied head in the history of disembodied heads, if I do say so myself.
Well I found a 2008 Hyundai Accent for $6,500. It’s more than I wanted to spend but it has a “higher than average” rating in the buyers guide and that’s important to me. I guess we’ll go look at it either tomorrow or Thursday.
Dealer? Driveway? Craigslist?
Dealer. Even on the used car buyers listing in Calgary this was a better deal. Also, through a dealer you get their “guarantee” and I don’t have to worry about it breaking down five minutes after she drives it off the lot.

I realized why I hate heffies. Ugh.
The sweet putrification flavor?
Blech. Fruity fruit fruitiness.
YOu would love my Uber Hefe and it’s planet killing maltiness.
You would love it OR DIE!!!!!!
… and how can I get some of that disembodied head?
I dont…I cant..I…wont…

I have to wonder how such a sensible article managed to find it’s way into the New York Times.
Imagine that, kids need to be challenged in order to grow. Wrapping them in protective foam and storing them in the corner until they’re 18 doesn’t produce mature adults.
Dear Mr. From Texas,
Please email me… I believe I will be in your area next week.
Where in Texas? You know I live here, too…
I think fruity fruitiness is what I meant by “sweet putrification”. It’s the flavor of rotten fruit that almost tastes winey. Bleh!
THIS to a t.
Huge hail/rain storm last night about bed time. Since they were digging in my back yard, I now have a giant mud pit back there.
so is your eye candy going to do some mud wrestling today?
are you going to get out the hose now to make sure it says a mud pit? 🙂
No. Unfortunately they can’t really work back there when it’s this muddy. The “equipment” tends to get stuck.
so that’s what the kids are calling it these days.

Gah… I just need to rebuild my stamina. And drink moar coffee.
Listened to Ned’s Atomic Dustbin on the way in this morning. Yep, I am 17 again.
Just a really old, tired, ground down 17.
Could be worse.
You could get drunk with a friend then drunk dial some guy you have a crush on and embarrass yourself.
Good thing that NEVER happens anymore.
yeah, now you can drunk text them with the extra roulette spin of autocorrect!
BTW, I may do some editing tonight. Or we may have a silent week. I hope not, but we’ll see what I can do.
Because tonite tonite toniiiite.. oh ooooooooohh
I saw what you did there, Phil. 😉
Patman and Gil are at Comic Con this week. Hopefully I’ll get a full report from them about what is cool this year. I miss going, I don’t miss the crowds.

Funny, I thought some of these “Americanisms” actually came here from overseas. Still, they hate us anyway 🙂
Oh, how irritating that word is. So, I guess it goes both ways.
So out of curiosity, Vanamonde is the proper british phrase for train station?
Um, train station…
