Man, I really ought to have some pithy and useful saved up for these rare occasions. Now I’m going to get read for first of the week and only have ‘DERP!’ to show for it.
Two comments from Texas.
THREE! Three comments! Ha Ha Ha !
D is for Deadpan!
Went downtown this morning and am back already. That’s me, just a quick little bunny.
Since when is this a “serious” grown up podcast.
I thought is was about the silliness 😉
Spaceman Spiff was a type of superhero too… sort of.
My Boo has the Banana Phone song as her ring tone. It’s kind of strange
According to the Purolator website, my game is in Calgary. I might actually get it today.
These show notes are a little different. I chose to not put names, just titles of skits. I know Jack’s kids made up most of this episode but I wasn’t sure who the other kids were (my first guess would be Cj’s) and I didn’t want to leave anybody out so I left everybody out. Bwa ha ha ha ha ha! :devil:
Anyway, here are the notes. Don’t know the title of the final song Jack did so…

ooooh, Bunny likes
This day shift is keeps catching me napping.
Booo for work making Vanamonde tired. Yeah for Vanamonde taking a kip. :cheerful:
What’s a th? as in “Th day shift…”
Obviously I’m in a bit of a silly mood today :silly:
Oh yeah, happy birthday a day late Wolf. My all your bumps be of the good kind :happy:
“Univision and Disney are in talks to run a 24-hr news channel for Latinos in English.”
What’d I miss?
Methinks I will download the kid episodes and save them for our roadtrip to CA in a couple weeks.
Wait, you’re travelling south? Whyfor no one wants to travel north? 🙁
I’m going to the Rocky Horror Picture Show!!!
and taking the kids to the beach!
We just decided it was road trip time. Mommy needs to get away away away away….
TEB – The reason no one wants to travel North…. Snow although I am partial to Snow Bunnies. 😀
In these harsh encomomic times I’m feeling shafted by work and wondering if I should kick up a big stink about it.
Booo again *hugs*
Because it’s a kid’s episode
Phew, I’m relieved. I listened and re-listened, but I still had a nagging fear that a stray “motherfucker!” had somehow slipped through…
Van, I’m surprised you relinquished the FIRSTIES for the week.
Apparently he fell asleep at the mouse.
Cj, Ed, JohnBoze: your kids will be in the Part 2 episode.
Love is… Not being able to breath
Wow, have things been quiet…. Is it Facebook?
I always thought it was … wait kids episode…nevermind
Gary Oldman’s dramatic portrayal of….. Snooki?
The Tuesday cycle is probably still throwing people off. I’m sure all our cycles will resync shortly.
Fingers crossed and all that:
Something’s burning out side.
Nope. Can smell the smoke and a few minutes ago we heard sirens.
Gosh, I hope its not one of those adorable moose, eh
“Flaming Mooses” – the name of our drag band.
Do each of you have a large rack of… antlers?
We could tour across Saskatchewan with the Lumberjacks.
We’d sleep all night and work all day.
Thought about using this as an earbuddies piece, but I’m just not sure enough that others will find this as interesting as I do. I think it would work better just putting it out there to the group. I heard this song on All Songs Considered and couldn’t get it out of my head. I tried listening to the other songs by this artist, but am generally bored by them. Something about the combination of lyrics, her voice, and the general carnival-feel of this song just get to me.
I liked the song UH.
I won’t be able to get my ear buddies out until tomorrow. Damn work this morning then damn doctors this afternoon.
The moon is certainly bright and beautiful this morning.
What do you do with a cat that’s afraid of the dark?
Fit it with search lights?
Hi from Dallas, DP.
Santorum wins CO, TX, and MO last night. Jesus Hopping Christ.
Jesus hops? Cool! 😎
Stealing Paul’s very funny FB joke:
Looks like Santorum really churned up a froth . . . last night
Not TX! MN.
I was going to say “Wow, looks like a veritable Santorum avalanche in Colorado”… but that would be wrong.
His “Those aren’t pillows!” campaign platform is really working out.
Today I get a complete work over by my Doctors. I have to do things like run on a treadmill for a length of time, breath in a silly tube, jump, etc. I always come away exhausted after these things. The only good thing is I expect to have better results than last year.
Fingers crossed then.
They actually upped my meds last October, I’m still running on the high from that so expect to breeze through.
…except for one part. They make you hang half way off a ledge and then you hold your upper half (the part not on the ledge) horizontal for as long as you can. I never past that test.
Best of luck, Bunny.
Good Luck, Bunny! Cheers to good health!
Hoping for the Bunny Best!
My first ever published short story, “The Last Cyberpunk”, was about a stratodive, among other things:
Interesting (and partially remembered from an interview I saw once) side bar on this subject.
There was a test pilot who never went in to space but got the job of testing the stuff out. One of the early things NASA wanted to know was if people could bail out of a space capsule if things went awry. So they sent a Gemini (I think) capsule up by balloon with this guy inside to see if you could make a jump from the edge of space.
So at the appointed altitude, this guy pressurizes his suit, opens the hatch and tries to climb out. Only, the space capsule was very tight and they apparently hadn’t accounted for the parachute AND a fully pressurized suite so the guy got halfway out and couldn’t go any farther.
Not to worry though. The capsule had been fitted with the newly developed “recovery chute” so he simply had to climb back in and wait for the pre-programed ship to detach from the balloon and ride it back down.
… Only he got stuck. Halfway out of the hatch.
I can’t remember how long he struggled but he eventually kicked himself free and set an altitude record.
All following, high altitude jumps were done from open gondolas.
Not that those were simple.
BTW – On November 16, 1959, Joseph Kittinger The guy who holds the current altitude record and may be the same guy mentioned above) made a jump from 76,000 feet that nearly killed him. To stabilize him and prevent him from going into a “flat spin,” he had this small parachute that was supposed to open after he had fallen for 16 seconds. Instead it opened after only two seconds and WRAPPED AROUND HIS NECK ! This put him into an uncontrollable spiral and he lost consciousness as he tumbled at 120 revolutions per minute. He was saved because he had an emergency chute that opened automatically at 10,000 feet.
This guy did two more high altitude jumps after that including the one that is still the record today.
These 1960’s test pilot guys were a whole special kind of insane.
Heard this one on the UC Radio podcast, quite catchy:
ZP stamps on Amy:
More on the Piracy debate from NY Times; however, Im struggling to grasp how florists are being impacted.
I think that one of the things the movie/music industry over looks when they talk about how much money is lost to “piracy” is who is doing this theft.
My casual observation is that the bulk of it is being done by kids (yes, I am including you young 20 somethings) who don’t have the cash to buy these CDs, rent videos or go to these movies to begin with. I hold aloft NAPSTR as my shinning example. AT one time is was the biggest thing out there. Then they tried to go “legit” by charging … and their users vaporized.
So while I DO believe that Internet piracy does mean the loss of a great deal of money to a lot of people … if you stopped all of it tonight the majority of those doing it just simply wouldn’t see or listen to all of this “content”.
I do not believe it is a one to one relationship between illegal downloads and dollars lost.
Hmm. I’d always used Librivox for audiobook downloads, but I never knew these alternatives existed:
Apparently the dump on the reserve caught fire yesterday and that’s why there was smoke in the air. They figure it will contine to burn for another couple of days, so I can expect to smell smoke for another few days
Looking back at the comments, the Pan was rather dead last night.
Yah. I went for sheer comment bulk instead of quantity.
I love the smell of burning trash in the morning.
Yes, it’s been a few years since we’ve had a week *this* quiet.
If I have time, I’ll do a play by play tomorrow.
I’ve never paid attention to download numbers and other statistics, so this is the only number that’s ever truly mattered for :deadpan: No logic, that’s just how it’s always been.
I appreciate the ways some of you (eg: Bunny) have shared in this weird stat monitoring. I’d hate to rely on artificial boosts to maintain the comment numbers of yesteryear, but the occasional play-by-plays and other games are fun and appreciated.
David & Goliath, contemporary version
Still trying to find that perfect charitable 5k run to do this year? Well, this one is for the undead in all of us!
The Zombie 5k Obstacle run. (For charity of course) I recommend running in 3″ heels; especially the band members of the Flaming Mooses.
Instead of cups of water, the onlookers stand along the course route holding out brains.
Well, after much discussion with Purolator, I finally got my game. Now, I have a death to recover from…
Oh yeah, I guess I better say, game wise, not in reality 😉
I’m having an extreme attack of the collywobbles over planning stuff.
^^ One of the many reasons I heart Van.
Me too *hugs*
I heart Van even in spite of his coblywobbly bits!
I am currently looking over a list of “2012 Best Picture” nominees, trying to decide which to rent.
With a shudder, I am suddenly reminded of “Sideways”.
Am I the only one here who thought that thing was just a horrific loss of 2 hours of their life?
Never got round to actually watching that movie JJ, although it got good reviews at the time.
I watched Sideways on DVD with my mom and ex-wife. Even in my mid-30s, it was awkward watching the angry-naked-guy-runs-down-the-street scene with my mom.
In spite of that, I recall the movie being pretty good – – as long as you can tolerate a movie with no likable characters.
I was annoyed that it didn’t go anywhere or do anything. My impression of the film was that neither of the guys in it “grew” from their experiences. Which I guess could still make a fun film if something “fun” happened to the characters. meh
AND ANOTHER THING … why was your mother running down the street with angry-naked-guy?
I may not be able to do a play by play tomorrow. I was just informed we’re having company over for dinner tomorrow. I have a few thing to do if that’s going to happen
I’m big fan of her first two albums.
In fact you can download her first commercial album here:
Hit and miss:
Definitely some gems buried on that site.
“How Many Pages Does it Take to Blow Up a Fucking Bridge?” by Ernest Hemingway – – brilliant.
I am still so confused. What the hell day is it?
It continues to not be tomorrow.
Mmmm, while tomorrow does seem distant, I’m going to be pleased with tonight. I see an evening in my future.
Busy day. First work, then going to clean the bathroom, then going to makes some cookies called Chocolate Bliss, then must shop for snacks and alcohol for the company we’re having tonight.
Maybe I’ll do a cookie making play by play.
ooooh, Westjet is having a sale until the end of next week. I loves flying on Westjet.
No I wasn’t looking, since I do most of my travelling with them, they send me e-mails on upcoming promotions.
The frost is so think, for a moment, when opening the curtains, I thought it snowed.
Well, work is done. I loves non-month end Fridays! :heart:
hmmm, cookies first or bathroom first…. decisions, decisions.
Cookie baking time!
Look at that, now it is snowing
I rearranged my oven racks so I can put tow cookie sheets on them.
Then I pulled out a couple of cookie sheets and sprayed them with Pam
I put some semi-sweet chocolate chips, unsweetened chocolate and some butter in a dish and put it in the microwave to melt
Sugar, flour, cocoa, and baking soda went into my mixing bowl. I’m going to add a couple of eggs and the chocolate once it’s melted
Hey, I got three peds in Pederast.
Ummm… Would you think less of me if I said I have no idea what you’re talking about?
Or maybe that was pins in Pinterest? This kids and there apps these days.
kids? That would be peds in pedophile.
Wait … that can’t be right.
There, it’s all combined. Now I’m going to add some chocolate chips
I dropped cookie sized chocolate dough onto my cookie sheets and put them in the oven for a short while
I think I’m going to start on my bathroom while the cookies are baking
Cookies are ready!
Holy crap, the snow is really coming down!
I like the way you come over surprised when it happens every year.
The only reason it surprises me Van is because it wasn’t suppose to snow until late tonight or early tomorrow and then we were only suppose to get a dusting. Damn weatherman.
In the UK, distrusting the weatherman is a national pasttime.
Or so it seems..
Well, I’m going to brave the snow storm and head to the store. Must get food and beverages for our guests.
I hope your taun-taun doesn’t freeze out there, Bunny.
It’s actually not that cold Jack, around -10C. Just white and hard to see through.
This is why I <3 the Deadpan community. :happy:
Now, must put cookies in the t.a.r.d.i.s. (cookie jar) and put all the drinks in the fridge.
My Android phone is loaded up with the first Aubrey-Maturin novel by Patrick O’Brian and all my Toucan Pirates, PotC sountrack, and Jimmy Buffett music. I’m just now heading out the door for my 3-day cruise adventure to Ensenada, Mexico! I probably won’t be online much this weekend, but I might poke my head in if I can. If I can’t, talk to you on Monday! Deadpan is the way! :happy:
Safe travels and Amazing Adventures to Amy!
Wahoo Amy !!!!
See if you can find some warm sunshine and margaritas for us!
Exercise caution if the captain’s name is Ahab, Silver, or Nemo. Or Aubrey, for that matter.
Have a great, safe time!
LOL! I guess you’ve read the books. I’m just starting the series for the first time.
(I’m not on the ship yet. I’m posting from my smartphone.)
Big sale on the app store this weekend:
Ticket to Ride Pocket (based on the German board game) is free, well worth checking out.
We enjoy the board game Ticket to Ride so I will check out the app tpp
Just back from the doctor’s office. Cholesterol screening. Going to see if my rigorous program of careful neglect has done anything to lower my cholesterol in the past year.
CP: Gravel Road– Clutch
Thats one way to teach kids about the dangers of playing with matches
What do you mean the dollar has dropped below parity? I don’t remember authorizing that
It’s turns out I’m a liar.
I believe you :cheerful:
Just like Huey Lewis!
So, is the concensus that “The Black Swan” wouldn’t be a good choice as a Valentine’s date?
I saw it alone, so cannot comment.
It’s a beautiful and dark film, but not very romantic, no…. Your date also might not appreciate your heavy breathing for Mila Kunis.
What if *I* am heavy breathing for Mila Kunis?
Can’t we both?
After another fruitless night trying to upgrade a HTC Tattoo I think I’m going to have to admit defeat and throw the phone in the bin.
English, sweety, English!!!!
Steady now, calling a full blooded male ‘sweety’ can lead to bruised egos.
Trying to upgrade a HTC Tattoo phone running Android 1.6 with Cyanogen mod.
I just have to say it:
I’m on a boat!
Probably my last post for a while. We set sail 2 hours and 45 minutes from now. Bon Voyage!
Enjoy yourself Amy!
From Phil Plat’s tweet: “Got binoculars and clear skies tonight? Uranus is a faint bluish dot 1.5 deg right below Venus.”
That’s great because I’ve never seen Uranus. Then again maybe I have.
So I kept hearing, “Hey, that Captain America movie is pretty good.”
Well it’s not. It’s terrible.
I guess it’s just me. . .
I may have been blinded by the use of actual German WW2 tech in the movie.
Well the look and not stuff dug out of a museum.
I seem to have the minority opinion about Captain America, Van, so it may just be me getting old and cranky.
Although I did like Thor and the first Iron Man.
I REALLY liked the first Iron Man, which caught me by surprise.
Didn’t see Thor.
I’ll chime in and say I really enjoyed all three films, probably Iron Man the best. Overall I did enjoy Captain America more than Thor. Looking forward to Avengers. 🙂
May have found my earbuddies piece. But I’m still culling the archives. I feel like I should do a study on what makes people assume that someone else has already heard everything in their own song collection.
I think it’s time to ditch Google +
Fox will subject me to some 3D Lucas Menace today…
I’m going to resist , once was bad enough.
Unsurprisingly, post-production 3D was underwhelming. Movie itself was still the same. CGI Yoda in place of puppet was not particularly noticeable beyond having been told of it ahead of time.
And…. its battle armour’s armour has armour and its projectiles have their own projectiles
Nice article from the NHL for Roenick’s induction into the Coyotes’ Ring of Honor at tonight’s game vs. Chicago. Im working and going to miss the game (cue mini violin)
Awesome. JR is kind of a clown, but he’s still one of the great players from my favorite hockey era.
Speaking of shitty movies, some of these seem inevitable:
Hasbro executives: So we own the intellectual property rights to Lite Brite and ROM:Spaceknight. Which one should we make into a movie?
Kids sports are a lot more stressful that I remember. Both the kids finished basketball today. Quite a bit of progress for both of them compared to where they started the season.
Cool, in an old fart (looking at myself) kind of way:
The old ads can be be more fun to read than the stories.
Well I’m hoping my earbuds partner cannot claim the song is obscure or unobtainable as it’s on Grooveshark.
Well possibly the former…
My earbuds partner is on a cruise ship apparently. No matter, I was able to share the MP3 by permission of the artist…
Depending on age and hearing loss.
I’m 95% sure about my song choice. I think it would be Rob, Dick, and Barry approved.
…and Whitney Houston has died:
Well, that was both unexpected and yet unsurprising. Tragic.
Fuck drugs. RIP Whitney Houston.
Well I guess crack really isnt whack.
Drank a Ruthless Rye IPA from Sierra Nevada, if you like IPAs you’ll probably love this. To me it’s a decent one bottle a night beer.
Achy, with a low fever.
I don’t do “sick” well.
Feel bettah, J0e.
Good night at the Glendale Arena. Coyotes did that Roenick ceremony, then shut out the Blackhawks.
So the 64,000 button question for the morning, is there a difference between oatmeal and porridge?
The next time you feel like putting down the dosh for old games have a think about this list:
The comments for that article are quite telling.
If the Internet spent half as much time trying to find a solution to piracy as it spends DENYING that piracy is a problem … we’d have a clean and appropriate solution.
Although I can’t feeling he’s pushing it with a lot of the older games (Fusion came out on the Amiga and ST).
Let’s go Sack Exchange! Smokin’ Shut Your Five Hole & just about everyone else in the League this week. :woot:
Still with fever this morning.
Soar throat, joints ache, head hurts.
Can I just go back a few saves and restart?
You can try it, but I think you lose all your gear and xp.
Does that mean I’ll throw up?
Sorry you’re sick, jJ!!
I finished High Fidelity this morning, and just watched the flick with Sly B. I’ll reserve my comments for the palooza!
Reminds me that I need to do some editing.
Think I’ll be watching High Fidelity one night this week & I look forward to adding my thoughts to the Deadpan Pool– Palooza. :o) *nervous*
I’m going to do my contribution entirely in interpretative dance.
That should make for some stunning podcasting audio.
More indepth analysis of Inception than you ever dreamed (ha!) possible.
I made it about 8 minutes before my head exploded.
Damn you! Damn you to hell, Jack Mangan!
Shit I’m going to have to watch it again.
I’m at 32 minutes now. I’m going to have to kill you, Jack. Nothing personal, of course. My mind has just asploded all over my desk.
Yeh. I think I made it until around the 20 minute mark … or did I!
All I got out of it was– ‘Buy my book!’
That was at about 2:22 in.
Cool. I’ll have to get that one. I have a number of books in this series.
…and write an email that I’ve been procrastinating about.
I hope it’s not too heavy, Van.
Oh, and for the Facebook challenged, we did go see Episode 1 today. It claimed to be in 3D. We wore the glasses and everything. My wife reported to me this evening that our six year old son kept telling her “This isn’t in 3D!”
A pretty damning indictment. Unless they really ask to go, I don’t plan on seeing any of the other supposed Star Wars 3D conversions.
Watching the video made my very sleepy
I do believe it’s Monday again, sheeesh that week went fast.
I would like THIS week to go fast til Friday gets here, at which time I request a screeching halt of time until Tuesday.
Slept in this morning. Hoping it doesn’t affect the rest of my day.
I know I told my buddy he’d get my song last Friday but I’ve been pretty busy. Hopefully I’ll get it out tomorrow.
Because I lost two and a half hours of my morning by sleeping in, there won’t be a play by play today. Apparently I’m having company for tea this afternoon. If they decide not to come I’ll do one otherwise tomorrow you’ll be tortured with this gem http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1148200/
What’s your favorite tea, Bunny?
I have a lemon ginger that I quite like DP. Also a cinnamon spice.
Earl Grey – hot
What does this African say when he’s excited?
Was the pan down?
The :pan: was apparently out of commission early this morning.
It’s raining. How bizarre is that?
Not really bizarre at all.
It is in Calgary in the middle of February. It’s usually snow at this time, not rain.
Enjoy the dancing!
That should be singing…grrrrrr!
Can I do both? Gene Kelly did
If you are pottering around the Artic circle:
I try to avoid either of the pole. It’s cold enough where I am thank you very much :cheerful:
maybe add an s at the end of pole. The sentence makes more sense that way. :happy:
You KNEW I wouldn’t be able to so no to that site.
There went another hour of my life!
sheesh. You as one little question about your taxes and it puts people in a tizzy.
I’m eating Doritos for lunch. That’s healthy, right?
I think I threw the guy at the tax office for a loop. He’s taking his sweet time finding me an answer. What’s the net’s on line chat equivalent of hold? That’s what I’m doing right now.
Hey Ditto! Here’s a question. As an expat, do you still file both a CDN and US return or just US now? I know I’m just being nosy so if you don’t want to answer the question, I’m ok with that.
No, I only file US. I only have to file CDN under (rare) circumstances.
I have people coming over in an hour, hopefully I’ll be done by then… hopefully.
dum de dum de dum *twiddles fingers*
Well that was a useless answer. I sent him back to get more clarification.
This bunny is now happy. I just found out the fees I pay for my private medical services are tax deductible. However, I printed out a copy of our discussion just in case Revenue Canada decides to question me.
Ok. I have dishes to do, laundry to fold, and then tea to make. Later Pan
After 2012, she’ll never want to see a soy packet again.
ummm, assuming this is true (which I question), pigs everywhere better beware.
Talk about pulled pork.
Sea legs, wheeeee! :silly:
I’m back on shore, safe and sound. That was an awesome, fun vacation! The best parts were when our favorite performers were rocking the house and we were all dancing! :biggrin:
Et tu, :ftb: ?
Kokatu not impressed with Sony’s new handheld:
When it rains it pours. Now I have too damn many things I want to send for the ear buddies exchange. In honor of High Fidelity it would be cool to do this as a top 5 list. On the other hand, it’s hard enough to get people to do one at a time.
CL: Irma Thomas – You Can Have My Husband, But Please Don’t Mess With My Man
CD: Prepping for my trip to Megacon – Orlando this weekend.
Not quite the kind of convention I’m used to. Megacon is more like a big dealers room with signing opportunities (oh, and a panel here and there because they don’t want to be accused of being nothing but a trade show). On the other hand, I haven’t had the time or money to travel to the cons in the northeast that I really like (I-Con, LunaCon, etc.) and I really miss going to conventions. With any luck, I’ll be in a position this year to go to DragonCon in Atlanta (a mere 8 hour drive away).
Everyone should go to DragonCon at least once. Though, getting to meet all the voices in my head that year made for a pretty big draw.
UH, Deadpan has never thrown out a creative idea to comply with some silly rules. We can probably figure out a way to make it work.
I could also just post the ones that don’t make the cut for the group here on the comments board. I doubt many people will be upset to have new music thrown their way.
A Free Man!
to a good home?
to a bad one.
