Thank god it’s Tuesday
I prefer Thankfully it’s Tuesday (TIT)
This is the breast one
This is becoming a habit.
It’s a hard habit to break…
You didn’t need to go all Cetera on his ass…
It’s all grumbly and growly out today

Jack, do you want me to send you the show notes or is just posting them this way fine with you?
Depending upon how work goes, there may be a Play by Play today. We’ll see…
I’m covered in cat hair! Damn black t-shirts.
CP: Tired Of You — Foo Fighters
I must be behind the times, I just learned about these trends
I’m not sure what to make of it.
I heard about it a while ago when people were making fun of Jennifer Love Hewitt for promoting it.
Wasn’t there a video game called Bedazzled? I’m waiting for the reboot.
I think this is the rated R reboot.
There were certainly two movies called Bedazzled:
I’m really looking forward to this game:
I quite enjoyed the first two but never played brotherhood
I’m not caught up either.
So the next movie on my DVR the next movie on my list is called Blind Date. Now this is not the recent movie, uh uh. My DVR says, “A man in search for a date at a Halloween party ends up in the hands of a coven of horny witches”
I can’t seem to find it on IMDB.
So, work willing, in a few hours, be prepared for…this?
Thanks to the Deadpan being down, you guys really missed out. I was going to do a PBP on a movie called Blind Date. Now this is not the recent movie, uh uh. My DVR says, “A man in search for a date at a Halloween party ends up in the hands of a coven of horny witches”
I couldn’t find it on IMDB. Since the deadpan was down, I decided to do more searching on this movie. When did my movie channels start showing porns? Seriously, it seems to have been produced by a company called Wicked Pictures. Now that I actually know what the movie is about it won’t be part of a PBP? Now it’ll wait until I’m alone with hubby :blush:
“Now that I actually know what the movie is about it won’t be part of a PBP?”
Was that an unanswered question, or are you going to do a PBP that includes the Hubby?
Nope, sorry. The question mark was a typo
Jack and Lo:
There’s a little black spot on the sun today.
Same ol thing as yesterday?
Oh that Sting(s)
I award JohnBoze +1 Internets
Well it’s 5am and as predicted it’s pissing down here.
NASA’s live feed of the Venus transit it is then.
CD:watching NASA’s live feed of the transit, front door open, listening to the rain.
….and ut’s over.
Fuck I totally spaced the transit. (No pun intended)
Easily the coolest historic dot I’ve ever seen.
Yeah, you guys enjoy your fancy Diablo 3 and World of Warcraft and Angry Birds Space. I know what game will be keeping me occupied.
I was watching Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! with Fray this morning and noted the episode writer was Suzanne Collins.
(Beyonce was a guest voice.)
Interesting bit of perspective. I’ll be curious to hear what our international contingent of Deadpan has to say:
Canada is a strange mixture of US and its’ own personality. Here is some overlap on what that article says. However, for the most part, I can agree with a lot of the perceptions… Except the punctuality part. Jack proves that section wrong 😉
Jack’s a guitarist, he gets a pass.
Actually I wonder how the US deadpanites feel about the travel advice, even the UK has inner city areas that are extremely dodgy.
Downtown Calgary isn’t safe once the sun goes down
Look its common sense, no matter where you are, not to hang around urban decay areas. Paris, London, New York, Little Rock… it doesnt matter.
Here = there
And whereever you go there you are…
Good Morning Pan.
In 24 hours I will be most of the way to Estes Park, CO. yes I will be going to the Stanley Hotel, no I will not be staying there.
All work and no play….
Ha!!! You enter the realm of Lo Pan
And EssBee. About 30 minutes from me, actually.
This is a much better realm 😉
I mean the realm of EssBee… not of Lo Pan. That should be obvious
We’re hitting Ft. Collins first. Closer or further away?
Further but a GREAT little college town. Still only 45 min from Ess.
We’re actually going there for burritos, but white bread may be an option
Ray Bradbury has died:
That’s weird, I was just thinking of him the other day. I really enjoyed “The Martian Chronicles”. Athough Mr. Mennegah said he was a bit of a tool when he talked with him.
Thank you for providing the world with your words
One of the last from a past great era.
Tragic indeed. I really enjoyed The Illustrated Man as a teen reader.
Just got back from the Optometrist. It’s pouring buckets out there. I’m all wet now.
I don’t think I’ll be able to let go of that image for a while now.
I went a little old school and made Rice Krispy Squares this morning. :happy:
WTF, Wisconsin? Way to give the finger to every one of your teachers, policemen, and firefighters. Oh well, I guess this is what you expect from the world capital of shitty beer.
Oh well, the tax burden will be a lot less without them having to pay for teachers, policemen, and firefighters. Ironically, politicians still seem to get paid though.
Also, after so many months, those unemployed civil servants won’t be collecting unemployment, so we won’t see them in the unemployment figures and will feel like things are getting better!!
Here you, TEB. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/06/05/scott-walker-beats-recall-wins-in-wisconsin.html
This guy made headlines last year for busting unions of those lazy, freeloading police and teachers.
Fonzie would have never voted for him.
As someone who’s married to an educator, who’s both inlaws were educators, who’s mother was an educator, I’m sure I can say a few things… One of which, how many times do I say I’m alone at night because of parent-teacher interviews, parent council meetings, etc. It’s very rare I get a full with with hubby home for dinner every night…
Ok, I won’t go into a rant, promise
I meant a full week, not just full.
Prometheus was disappointing.
How many movies has Ridley cocked up now?
Thelma and Louise did leave me a bit cold.
A work of genius in comparison to Kingdom of Heaven.
Zeus thought so too.
How so, Van? What were your expectations?
Oh nvmnd. I see your post below.
Don’t mind me, my brain is in cardiac overload
The robot stole the show, the characters were as deep as cardboard cut outs, theron was wasted, and the plot was just plain dumb in places.
But it looked cool…
Maybe if Hampton Fancher had directed, it would have been better.
I’m too busy gnawing on Scott’s bones to worry about that.
I think I’m going to pass:
I wonder how many people actually fall for that.
Well, that’s it from me. Just a brief pop in this afternoon. Now, off to see my massage therapist.
I felt the need to share this with the Deadpan cuz it made me giggle.
Jesus. They’ve sold 2??
CD: Boulevard Pale Ale. Simple. Effective
Little. Yellow. Different.
I feel much better now.
Ray Bradbury’s last published essay:
Searched in vain for the full-length Shatner “I say Sabotaaage” audio, but could find only snippets. Weak.
Crap joke for the day:
All this talk about the Jubilee has drowned out the news that a new Egyptian tomb has been discovered… it was particularly unusual as the mummy was wrapped in chocolate and gold foil – historians have translated his name as Pharoah Rocher…
Hmm, I’m going to have to see what Audible has for Mr. Bradbury.
Crap chemistry joke:
Two guys walking into a bar.
First guy asks the bartender for H2O
Second guy says “I’ll have H2O too”
Second guy dies
Van, The Daily Show did a pretty funny jubilee bit.
We’re getting our ducts cleaned today. The first thing I did, after hubby left, is move the furniture so they could get at the vents. Kitty is not amused.
I for one am mature enough not to make a euphemism quip.
Putting a historical event in perspective:
Ok, I’m pretty sure this is from WW2 but what particular event in that time frame is it, Van?
Attention Lo Pan & EssBee! I shall be in your vicinity between the 16th & 24th. Some times during that period are already booked, I think starting with the Ren Fair. I’m not sure if I have current emails for you guys, and I have what may be a 4-year-old cell number for Lo Pan.
Hit me at reallybigthings at gmail and we’ll see what we might come up with for a visit…
Well since my phone # number hasn’t changed in 10 years I think youre fine… 😛
JB, the 17th is Father’s Day and the 23rd is my mom’s bday, so a weeknight is probably gonna be best for me, or I might be able to sneak away for coffee or lunch if LP has a Monday off during your trip.

I think Darcy is looking at a general meetup night for some of her friends Friday the 22nd to which you all will also be invited once I know specifics, but I’d love to figure out alternatives if necessary.
I saw a sign on the way home from work:
HUGE Church Sale
Sounds like they can’t f-ing believe the church is for sale.
OMFG would have been even more unexpected.
My ducts are being cleaned as I type. My goodness but the cleaner is tall. He can reach the ducts on the ceiling downstairs without a step stool
(ok, ok, insert dirty thoughts here)
It’s not the size of the duct cleaner that counts…
Teresa has been working hard to get a 2 rating at her job, which would mean a good raise, promotion and bonus. She found out today she got a 1. 1 is a higher rating than 2. *faints*
Good for her Rhett!
Congrats on being #1!
CW: Continuum E2
You would think the terrorists from the future would be concerned about wiping themselves out by altering the timeline when they kill people.
Hubby and I aren’t quite sure how we feel about this yet. I has potential but it also has oh so may holes.
I think the duct man left with my parking pass. It’s a good thing I don’t get many visitors.
Guess I won’t be visiting TEB anytime soon
Were you keen on cleaning TEB’s ducts?
I have two passes, and a drive way. It’s not like I lack parking areas.
That’s what she said?
Making Paper Aeroplanes:
When I think hockey… This is the iconic scene that flashes in my mind.
Van, have you finished The Bridge yet? I’ve got 1.5 episodes left, so 3 workouts. It’s gettin’ good!
Also, meant to tell you, what a bullshit ending to Awake!!
Just started watching (watching so many other tv series).
Can’t help feeling Awake should have ended with episode 12.
How my insane mind works, I start watching the movie Dreamaniac (1986). Within the first 5 seconds I think:
1. Horrible soundtrack (i.e. 80s one-boring-guy-on-a-synthesizer music)
2. The font on the opening title credit looks astoundingly cheap
3. The first thing on the screen say “Wizard Video”… not film… not movie… video
This somehow leads me to the conclusion – This is going to be fantastically bad. Can’t wait.
We sure were fixated on the word “Maniac” in the 80s.
But we’re dancing like we never did before.
I just finally started watching Awake last night. I will finish all 13 episodes within this month.
TEB: Parking passes? Just curious: Are they passes to allow visitors to park on the street? Are they issued by the city?
You can just tell by looking at him.
Attention, Bunny, Rhett, whoever else is interested:
Finally – – a fascinating Ray Bradbury anecdote:
Two crap jokes for today:
My fetish for shagging rotten fish is getting out of hand.
I’m in a real bad plaice at the moment.
My son came home and said to me and his mum: “Can I have a boy from school round to stay the night?”.
I said to my wife: “Do you think he’s gay?”.
She replied “I think you should be more worried about the fact that the boy is one of his pupils!!”
A third crap joke:
I met this big breasted girl in a bar the other night. She asked if I wanted some fun with her big tits so we went down an alley where she beat me up & robbed me……………..It was a booby trap.
After that one, not only will I get my coat I shall have to eat it as well.
Kitty and I are sharing a blueberry muffin
I like blueberry muffins.
Thinking of kitties and muffins makes me hungry for tacos.
Is this the tacos with suspicious looking meat in them?
Amy, in answer to your question: I live near a LRT starting (light rail transit). As such, to discourage people from parking in the near by residential areas to ride the train, all parking in the area requires a parking pass. Each resident gets (up to) two passes to put in their vehicles and two “guest” passes, so when you have visitors their vehicles won’t be ticketed (I think the fine is somewhere around $140). It was one of these guest passes the duct guy had. However, he did come back and drop it in the mail box last night
Sigh. Starting = station
It’s obviously too early in the morning
Oh, OK. Thank you!
Here, have some chicken soup
Back in the north lands to help clear out my late mom’s house. Posting will be rare.
Well, since everybody (outside of Canada) knows Ontario is really close to Alberta, maybe I’ll pop by to say hi 😉
*Manly hugs*, ditto.
Thanks guys. The day has had big ups and downs emotionally.
This is cool, if somewhat unfeasible.
Off to see Red Tails.
Yes I’m putting money into George Lucas’s pocket.
Yes I know it falls into the 300 league of historical accuracy.
Yes I know the reviews say it’s basically crap.
Hubby wants to see that too. We’ll probably wait until it’s on our local movie channel though.
I also intend to see that. Eventually.
It was a bit shite.
The horrible red text on screen reminded me of Hammer movies from the 60’s and 70’s.
Purchased the tickets. We’re seeing Prometheus on Sunday.
I wanted to see this with friends this weekend, but we’ll just have to settle for another day.
Brave, on the other hand…. 🙂
Monsters ate my Condo goes free for a week:
I have a hot date this morning.
It’s my 9yr old nephew. We are off to the movies and lunch.
He gives excellent kid hugs 🙂
OK right-wing extremists… enough is enough. You can rig the system to make giant corporations wealthy at my expense, trample citizens freedoms, foment a culture of fear and anger – – but don’t fuck with my hockey.
*Coyote sized face-palm*
The State of Arizona and its people have just sucked all-around these last 4 years or so.
With at least 7 or 8 exceptions!
Ok, enough about Arizonians sucking. My mind just keeps going to the wrong place :blush:
Well, someone is happy that way. 😉
Some good news.
I’ve been sucking pretty hard these last four years.
An I’m sure you’re wife appreciates it :angel:
(I told you my mind was going there)
Well it’s nice to see that the dark cover is finally being lifted… So it may appear.
I’m sure the GWI will sue to interfere, as always. But I think that all parties knew it would happen and are prepared to weather it out, that’s my hope anyways.
After an extended conversation with a coworker about unions, I’ve decided I’m done with politics.
Bunny, is it better in Canada?
Ummmm. I can’t speak for other provinces but the Alberta government doesn’t like unions and tries to find ways around them (ie. Teachers are unionized however when the government allowed charter schools to start, they can’t be unionized – hubby works at a charter school. Federally… *shrug*
As for politics, everywhere you go (in the free world), every country has it’s pros and cons. That being said, from what I’ve seen, I would rather live in Canada over the U.S.
Somedays, I really can’t decide. They are equally corrupted and stupid on both sides of the border. I guess it depends on what day it is and what I’m drinking. 😉
And what ARE you drinking, good sir?
It’s not the unions, in particular, that had me exhausted, but the tendrils of my conversation reached all over the place. We touched on presidents (past and future), teachers, cars, corruption, lobbyists, the armed forces, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
It was the discordance between “do the right thing” and “do the smart thing” that convinced me we’re doomed. 🙂
“The Techno Union army is at your disposal, Count.”
Nice to drift off to the sound of pouring rain and the occasional drunken yob.
Drunken yobs are very soothing.
YOB YOB WHERE’S MY YOB?
Yub nub, yob!
Voodoo Friends go free for the weekend:
If you remember the game ‘Lost Vikings’ you’ll get an idea of the gameplay.
HBO’s own fault for not getting with the times and putting their stuff on streaming services.
“…the reason I use all these other sites is because I don’t HAVE or WANT cable.”
This is SO true, and I think most of the people who pirated Game of Thrones went through the exact process Matthew Inman illustrates.
Ha. Amy and I were on the same thought.
Crazy idea: Maybe they should make it available for non-subscribers? I’m willing to bet that most torrenters would pay or suffer advertisements through legit channels, if that were even possible.
I want to watch B5, and Vampire Diaries, and Fringe. I already pay for Netflix and Amazon, but they aren’t available. I say pifff.
CW: Longmire E1
Watchable, but doesn’t grab you by the balls the way the first episode of Justified did.
One from 2004, when I went through an IR phase, a castle in Cumbria whose name I have forgotten:
Wow, in a love of ruins kind of way:
I love this kind of shit and also OMFG 800,000 BODIES?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!
And, the kids have returned to civilization from a week a camp. I think they appreciated all their gadgets and technology AND managed to get along with each other for quite possibly a full 30 minutes afterwards 🙂
CP: Reelin’ in the Years – Steely Dan
CP: Marrakesh Express – Crosby, Stills and Nash
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OFzXaFbxDcM Sorely missing a scene of him changing shoes. . . but otherwise wonderful.
CNW (currently not watching): Red Tails. This was on the XBox Zune this weekend so hubby rented it. This movie has two thing against it for me. I’m not big into war movies and I’m definitely not big on Cuba Gooding Jr. So hubby’s watching it. I’m reading.
CR: Master of Heathcrest Hall – Galen Beckett
Hubby paused to take a washroom break. I asked him how the movie was so far. His reply, “the planes are nice anyway”
I don’t think that’s a rousing positive review
I watched Cowboys & Aliens last night. Cute movie, but brain must be firmly off while watching. 🙂
Yes, it’s movies like that for which I keep a nice big jar of formaldehyde on the end table to store my brain in.
That movie still gets the finger.
I enjoyed it, but you don’t want to start pulling the threads, or it will unravel.
Now hubby is using the word dreadful to describe the movie. You a rousing endorsement if I’ve ever heard one
Can’t say I disagree with your hubby.
Poor Cuba gets a bad rap
I think I’m very excited for Django Unchained.
I sense an untimely death for Leo though.
Django is off the chain
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wufCkIla_ic (reminiscent of The Third Man there…)
NJ lives to play another day. 🙂
I’m not disappointed with this Final. Game 3, yes. The series, no.
Yeah, I wish I could have watched more of it. The past few weeks have been hectic at best.
The Devils looked like they finally found their confidence.
That’s some good hockey
Picked up the lastest humblebundle:
The games seem to work fine on my netbook, you can up some good indie games on the cheap (Mac and Linux users that means YOU as well).
I picked up the latest bundle when it still just had 5 games. I paid well over the 7.50ish average price for it at the time and it was WELL worth it then, since they’ve added a few new games, it just keeps becoming a more awesome deal.
SFSignal’s review of Prometheus:
What an unsurprising shame that Bladerunner’s elusive vagaries were unsuccessfully recreated.
Jeeez. The plan is still to see it tonight.
ZP sticks it to Max Payne 3:
Cholly make me feel good. Cholly….
Cholly, cholly, cholly get your whatever here…
Ask not what Deadpan can do for you, but what you can do for Deadpan.
That whirring noises in the background is JFK spinning in his grave…
The only thing we have to fear…
CW: Saving Hope – Episode 1
Another medical drama with the spice of supernatural elements…umm hoping episode 2 will be better.
“Discount Armageddon” is a fun book so far, but I expect no less from Seanan McGuire.
Getting ready to head back home tomorrow.
Jiggidy jig… my friend.
Just finished seeing Promrtheus. We actually quite enjoyed it. Although, admittedly, there where a number of “why’s?” left hangimg
Aren’t there supposed to be ‘why’s’ at the end of this one?
I would like a logical explanation for the behaviour of the biologist and geologist for a start.
Other than the usual dumb horror flick plot prop where somebody does something stupid.
In the world we live in, where pretty much everyone in every profession does something stupid, I find it quite plausible that they just made dumb decisions.
Just seemed totally stupid to me, but no more spoilers.
Don’t click till after you’ve seen the movie:
Yeah, there were a lot of why’s but I still enjoyed the movie. Go figure
Lost is now available on Netflix in the UK.
Not sure I could stand watching the 120 episodes all over again.
If you are ever in Canada, I recommend trying Alexander Keith’s IPA. An excellent beer. It’s very mild for an IPA.
Psst… smuggle some..
I think Alexander Keith is a bit wider spread than just Canada. Seeing as I can get it here in Florida :drevil:
Pssst… smuggle some
OK, Lo Pan…. Did I miss something? What is this Cholly stuff from?
Its in my head…. so catchy…cant get it out of my head…
Ah. I’m relieved that it’s Fishbone. I was afraid it was the famous anus song.
I actually did not hate Prometheus. Van is right, but I still made it through.
I reserve my final comment regarding Prometheus until tomorrow; however, I am enjoying the colorful discussions about different thoughts on the flick, that are echoing in the house.
Happy Birthday CJ!
Happy Birthday Cj. Hope you have a good day.
For some reason I feel very weary today, work is a slog and still 7 hours to go.
If you are ever in LA, this sounds like a cool place to visit. 😉
Hubbyless again tonight 🙁
A great big birthday hug for my goddess!
Happy Birthday CJ!
Colorado was pretty. Was weird not to have cell service most of the weekend.
Wanted to make sure Lo and EssBee were safe with the wildfires spreading.
We’re fine as we’re in urban areas. The only fire around us is gunfire…
/crime is up this year humor
Happy Birthday to CJ! Enjoy your day
Happy Birthday, CJ. Have a great day.
Happy CJ, Birthday!
Interestinf article on Prometheus:
I agree with a lot of the points in this article however he also gives a bit too much credit to the writing and production.
The article didn’t start well with this load of bollox:
“Prometheus” is a Marmite of movies. You love it, or you hate it. But here’s what you need to know : If “Prometheus” is a prequel to “Alien”, then “Downfall” is a sequel to “A Bridge Too Far.”
I thought of Prometheus as a prequel to the prequel. I would go into why I think that way but then it would get way to spoilerific.
The planet designation in the film is a bit of a clue to the validity of that idea.
A feminist view on Prometheus:
I’m obviously not a feminist. All I saw in this article was a stupid unnecessary rant. Sometimes a movie is just a movie.
^ here! hear!
I’m not reading this or seeing Prometheus until it’s on DVD, but obviously I am a feminist.
Couldn’t this woman write her own movie script? Or was she just hoping to draw more hits to her blog?
Thank you everyone!
It will be a VERY happy birthday for sure! Especially once Ralph and I arrive in Vegas tonight! Super Squeeeee!
Paid by thy harp!
I tell everyone…,
You must go to the Bellagio–any bar and buy a Cable Car.
It’s very expensive (>$20) but an incredible cocktail & you’re celebrating!! Woot
Tony Tony Mast, yall
Happy Vegas Birthday, Cj! (We need pics of Ralph in Elvis garb)
CW: Trueblood S5 E1
Nice to see Sookie back..
Four adapted (for radio in the 1950’s) Ray Bradbury stories:
I didn’t know Robert De Niro were Ina movie together.
CW: Killer Elite
+ Jason Statham
He’s also in a new one coming out in the UK (maybe old hat for North America) with that guy who played Scarecrow in the first Christian Bale Batman movie.
We saw a Christian Bale flick over the weekend that was the same old story retold, and even so I enjoyed it. It was Equilibrium.
Looks like Apple will not put iOS 6 on original iPads.
I’m glad I have an ipad 2. Although, I get the feeling we will have to update next year or we will start missing out on IOS updates too.
Halo 4 ad during the Euro 2012 coverage:
OK. Wtf is an Oogielove?
This is what Google comes up with http://www.oogieloves.com/
My niece and her husband did a video cover of Goyte’s “Somebody That I Used to Know.” Not to shabby.
Lo Pan likes this
Indescision leads to inaction
…and so I did, my first attempt at putting an audio track in the back ground of a recording of me speaking.
well more like to the right., hopefully crunching down to mono will fix that.
Something fun for your Monday Blues. 2 minutes of runway models taking some not-do-beautiful strolls on the catwalk.
(Heavy Metal Scream) Let’s get ready to FLYYY!!! (/heavy metal scream)
Think we’ll be waiting to catch Prometheus until the home video round. Too many other promising movies to catch at the theater this summer.
Well… thats one way to end a cup Final.
And it’s over. A well-earned win by the Kings.
Yeah. I guess theyre allowed 1 cup every 45 years
Alot of people escaping Salty Lake City and heading for Las Vegas.
Meanwhile… Sky Harbor is a ghost town.
You’ve slipped into an episode of the Twilight Zone.
A slightly belated Happy Birthday to Cj.
Good night, Pan.
