  1. I had a friend who wouldn’t let her kids go out on Halloween for similar reasons


    She once gave me heck because when her kids were over visiting mine, I put on the Disney animated Sword in the Stone. She didn’t like the fact there was a witch in it.

  2. Gosh darn it people. How am I suppose to give you credit on the show notes if you don’t say who you are on your voice mail?

  3. Holy crow this update is taking forever. It’s worked its way through the apps and is now “restoring music and videos”

      • Mine wasn’t scheduled to check for updates for another couple of days. You can force the update EssBee. Plug in your phone and on the front screen it will tell you when it will next look for updates. Just tell it to look for updates now. Expect the update to go on for about a half hour. After that, when you go onto your phone, it will ask you a bunch of questions, etc as if it were new out of the box.

  4. Thx for the kind words about the episode, EssBee. At the risk of seeming less cool, I confess that I don’t know the Stevie Nicks line that I inadvertently quoted.

    Thx also to to the person who has contributed this morning’s voicemails! Keep em comin’, everyone.

  5. Anybody who’s available and willing to to something for me right now (or as close to as possible), can you drop me an email? ryahdeinesatshawdotca

    I promise, it will only take a second or two and isn’t (too) evil.


  6. Ralph’s avatar is so cute. *swooon*

    I didn’t get in on your thingie Bunny… I’m unable to do much from work. So, I’ll be left out, but know I wanted to be there…

  7. My favorite salesperson at Evil, Inc. has the best Email etiquette of anyone I know. This is the salutation of something I just received from him:

    As always, I wish you and yours my very best.

    With my warmest regards, I am,

    • Speaking of which –

      At the party the other night, one of my neighbors was trying to use the word “Umlaut” but couldn’t and in her confusion … she substituted the word “doppleganger”.
      It was rather amusing.

  8. I just want you to know, I still do the show notes for the Deadpan. It’s Jack who’s not been on the ball in not posting them the last few weeks.

    Sill Jack :silly:

  9. Damn it EssBee. I just want you to know I blame you for the rise of my credit card bill. I now have 11 Marla Mason stories on my iPad. I’m only onto the second one but i’m the type that likes to have a backlog. I think I have them all, but I’ll have to see.

    Although, I won’t read them all at once. After this one I’ll go on to Terry Pratchett, then another MM book. I’ll read them every other book from that point.

  10. Interesting “future of tech” discussion on CNBC this morning.

    Of note was the talk about HTML 5.
    According to this guy, it signals the eventual end to the War between Apple and Adobe because it makes Flash irrelevant.

    This has been your geeky news update.

  11. Quote of the Day:

    “Avoid having your ego so close to your position that when your position falls, your ego goes with it.”
    — Colin Powell

    I wonder how this applies to porn stars. πŸ™‚

  12. How bloody stupid is the wifi sync in iOS5, it only works if the phone or iPad is plugged into a power source….but if it has to be plugged into a power source I may as well plug it into the computer and sync over the wire…grrrrrrrrrr!

    • Well, it will actually serve me well enough. My computer is upstairs in my house. In the morning, I make a special run upstairs to sync up and grab my Ipod before heading out to work.

      So, thanks to Steve Jobs, I’ll be getting even less exercise than before πŸ™‚

  13. CD; Duvel

    as far as I can remember this is the first time I’ve tried this beer, and I’m sad about that after tasting it.

    Has almost everything I like in a belgian ale. Good aroma and flavor.

  14. ok, tooting my own horn for a moment, look how freakin cool this photo came out!!!!


    Returned from NY today, just going through my photos πŸ™‚ this is a photo of Hells Kitchen, NY

    PS hope everyone has been good. Long time no speak. Went to San Fran for Hughs tests (all good!) and work, home for 2 days then off to NY for work also and then a few days vacation. Been a busy past few weeks.

  15. Pulled “Crimson Tide” out of the library and watched it tonight for the first time in at least ten years or so.

    I hadn’t realized the powerful cast of actors that came together for that one. A tense, post cold war drama that is worth a viewing if you haven’t had the chance.


  16. Crap Joke alert:

    Researchers have discovered that excessive masturbation can cause dyslexia. Hwoevre, tihs is olny in etxreem caess of slef aubse…

  17. We were actually at the Coyotes home opener last night. Nice to see the place sold out, and nice to see how the Yotes handled the Jets. Turns out it was on CBC too. Take that, Don Cherry!
    I also had a 60-point day, thanks to Zdeno Chara. It was a good hockey Saturday.

    • (For Everyone Else: This particular fantasy hockey league scores 2 points per check, 1 point per blocked shot, 1 point per Penalty Minute, and only 1 point per goal/assist scored.)

      I think the real NHL ought to adopt this scoring method.

    • Oh youre not alone…!!!

      We’re gonna change up for sure next year. Make the star players and goalies count more.

      Tho I gotta say I do kinda love our thug-o-league

    • I had a hood ornament like that once.
      Notice the way the eyes light up when the parking brake is set.

      Problem was you had to really bend forward and press your face to the glass between the legs to be able to see and I kept getting pulled over by the cops for being a “peeping tom”.

    • The Matrix sequels had some good ideas, I just don’t think execution was quite there. I liked the idea of Zion actually being allowed by the matrix and reinvented every so often, because it knew humans, being what they are, needed to rebel. And “the one” was actually created to destroy Zion so it can start again, thus allowing the Matrix to continue relatively smooth.

    • I’ve always defended the 2nd film as an incredibly fun movie, chock full of great, pointless action sequences and visuals. The scene with the Architect was fantastic! It all seemed like hte perfect setup for a killer conclusion in film 3.

      And that’s where it all went wrong.

      • I agree with that.

        I enjoy all 3 though the finale is a bit of a muddled mess. Still, it is fairly consistent with the plot points raised throughout the series.

        My major complaint with certain bashers is that they tear down the movies solely on the basis that it wasn’t the story they wanted to be told. It is fair to point out legitimate failures in plot and storytelling, it’s another thing to rate a movie by comparing it to your own mythical plot. I’ll admit there’s a fine line between the two.

        • “My major complaint with certain bashers is that they tear down the movies solely on the basis that it wasn’t the story they wanted to be told.” – – well said!!

          And hey, that article writer also gets 1000 bonus points for defending “Speed Racer”.

          • Well, bear in mind that Speed Racer is a kid’s movie. I think that was part of the backlash – – hipsters went expecting a gritty Otaku homage, with trenchcoat dudes dodging slo-mo bullets.
            Instead, they got a comic relief monkey and John Goodman. And a piranha.

          • I think we all know your stance on this. πŸ™‚

            Besides, you have a legitimate complaint about the “adaptation”. The Matrix is different since it is not based on a previously published work.

  18. I remember after seeing the first Matrix, I thought that because Neo became “God” at the end of the movie any follow ups to the story line would fall short. And I think that is what was wrong with the sequels. A better idea would have been to follow some other characters in the Matrix universa, ala The AniMatrix.

  19. Over on FB, I mentioned how I had recently read Asimov’s short story “The Last Question” and absolutely loved it. Then I discovered that some of our podcasting stars “Cheyenne, Mur, Rossie” had done voice work for a Drabblecast version of the story. I listened to it last night and was blown away. It takes a while before the story telling actually starts, but once it does, it’s awesome.

  20. I’ve been counting calories and working out and junk like that for several months and have a milestone to share. I was just able to change my “activity level” from Mild Activity to Moderate Activity, and just reported 18 pounds lost!

  21. ah busy days and distracted nights leave little time for deadpan. Sorry about that. I hope everyone is doing well, I’m toiling away to pay bills and save money until I can get back to Az.
