If there was a plug at the centre of the universe could you resist pulling it out?
Well, fuck. I can’t upload the show this evening…. Sorry folks, it will go out tomorrow night.
In the meantime, I leave you with this Star Wars-themed parody of that Gotye song:
If you haven’t seen the original, then watch this first:
Never mind! I fixed it. Now, off to bed.
And there was much rejoicing.
If you are coming to watch the Olympics:
Your crap joke today is stolen from twitter:
I once took the pee out of a pirate, he was furious.
Another freebie on the app store:
And….. Star Wars Call Me Maybe.
Tuesday it is

Closing Music: Hello the Future – The Really Awesome Johns (http://hello-the-future.bandcamp.com/)
Note: The closing music was not The Really Awesome Johns, it was Jack. My fault for cutting and pasting from the last episode. *sigh*
Your generally all-around-awesomeness makes it hard for us to even notice these small things.
He was the Mast. The TONY Mast.
He was the Mast. He was a Deadpan Smash.
He was the Mast. He’d pit the Hulk verses the Flash.
He was the Mast. The TONY Mast.
Makes me want to dig out the dry ice and fans.
With god-given ass?
MASTer of Podcasts is pulling the strings
Does he BAIT your appetite for more podcasts?
Fed all the critters at my Boo’s house. Now my kitty thinks I’m a traitor since I smell of other animals.
For those keeping track, my washroom is still not done
Just so you are warned, when hubby is out of town next week, you will be hit with a plethora of play by plays. I’m so far behind.
wOOt! Hopefully my vacation at the end of July, beginning of August won’t coincide.
My stupid phone decided it no longer wanted to hook up to my wifi. Told it to “reset network settings” and am rebooting.
Hope that works.
that worked! Sometimes Google is amazing.
I need hubby to come home from his meeting. The washroom is out of tissue paper. Ther is a spider crawling around on the refills. What am I going to do if I have to go?
Very brief drive-by to share this: Dropbox users beware…
Vacationing is being good to me today. 🙂
those are beautiful
CR: Patrick O’Brian – Master and Commander
Enjoying it so far. 🙂
I read the first 2 books. Learned the word “punctilios” from the first one.
There’s a book discussion group for the series here:
I just jumped on board recently, because they decided to start their second read-through of the series, and I was new to the series.
It was the late 90s when I read Post Captain, so it’s a safe assumption that I’ll never get around to Blue at the Mizzen. Or any of the other obscure nautical terms. Still, those first 2 were good reads.
Goodnight :flying jib:
Crap joke for the day:
We’ve caught a stray parrot in our garden.
All it says is,
”Good morning, you ugly fucker”……
It’s not yours is it?
Dear Deirdre, I was watching my next door neighbour’s daughter sunbathing topless from my bedroom window. As I was knocking one out I turned to notice my wife just stood there, arms folded, watching me. Is she a pervert ?
There must be SOME kind of coat I can kick around here
Another busy work day in store for me today.
Really work? Really?
Hey Ed, here’s some swell entertainment that’s fun for the whole family!

I absolutely approve this comment.
Weatherman is indicating a strong chance of a shitstorm. Sigh. Let’s hope it just passes on its way…
This will likely be my only post on the computer today, but I’ll try to stop in via the smertfone when I can.
How are you?
Since Jack has a love affair with The Smurfs, Im guessing the Freudian slip meant Smurfphone.
He’s exuding phertmones.
That’s all I have to say.
I confirm that.
That is all.
Although, on a happier note, they are working in my bathroom for the first time this week.
Damn Steam sales.
finally picked up LA Noir
Let me know what you think of LA Noire, I’ve been thinking of picking that one up myself. I also need to get The Witcher 2 at some point.
Thumbs up on witcher 2. Like I said, no idea when I’ll get to LA Noir. May be months. However I couldn’t resist the $5 Steam price.
5 dollars, dang.
LA Noir has been on my list for a while. Sigh. Until I can afford to replace my xbox, I’m not playing anything. 🙁
Thief trilogy is tempting.
I looked at it but it didn’t get a very good review so I passed.
I also picked this up on Steam today http://www.gamespot.com/dear-esther/reviews/dear-esther-review-6349936/
I have no idea when I’m going to have time to play any of these. Still working my way through Dragon’s Dogma.
I played the demo but the ‘game’ did nothing for me.
Games I still need to finish:
Mass Effect 3
Batman Arkham City
and lots of old games like Mechwarrior 4 etc. etc.
Games I still need to finish:
damn near all of them (I tend to get bored with any game after about 2 weeks.
Games I have finished:
Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee
An RPG on Playstation 2 that, for the life of me, I’ll never remember the name of (and it drives me crazy). It’s definitely not any of these: http://www.listal.com/list/rpg-world-ps2-edition
My work computer decided I’m not who I say I am. IT has no idea why. *sigh*
Oh, I’ve seen this film.
Do your credit cards still work?
So I was talking to my immediate superior (about a half hour into this fiasco) and she says, “hey, I just got an e-mail saying network systems are down, specifically relating to VPN.”
Wow, fat lot of good that email did me since I can’t access email or any other service. *double sigh*.
Oh well, at least I now know the problem is system wide and not just with me.
LA Noir is taking its sweet time to download. Only at 60%
Off to get my neck pulled, twisted and rubbed.
I recently took care of my urge for some hot stormtrooper action. Yes a dewback was involved.
Ed: I approve of J0e’s comment, too. You should go to DCI. I really do believe the whole family will be entertained. 🙂
Vacation is going well. Spending the afternoon putting photos into a photo album – one of the projects I brought up here to do during the lazy days. :happy:
Appreciate the recommendation and it looks like it would be cool. However, the kids are out of town and I’ve got another commitment for the evening. Alas, it’s just not meant to be this time.
Games I still need to finish:
Toejam and Earl
Space Harrier for Sega Genisis
My phone is from the late 80’s also.
Went and got some mid-grade Scotch as well as a nice oak aged IPA in Great Divides Rumble. BBQing corn on the cob and chicken breasts.
/not your personal twitter, asshole
I approve this message.
Pour you one, sir?
Pour you a drink, sir?
Just got back from having a celebratory dinner (complete with celebratory wine :happy: ) in honor of a special occasion.
I have accepted a job offer to be a network technician at First Data, a very large employer in Omaha. Barring any problems with my background check or other hiring paperwork, I start August 6th. This is the culmination of over two years of study, and I’m very excited.
“Barring any problems with my background check”
Ack! It’s only a matter of time before they discover the Deadpan.
Add my congrats as well.
Well congratulations on the huge win, Amy! Does this mean you’ll be moving to Nebraska?
Wasn’t there a Kings X album that dealt with this?
Oh how exciting for you, Amy!!! Congratulations on the incredible life change & career move.
Omaha is a very nice city. And it’s only a 3 hr drive from KC. 🙂
Very cool Amy. Congratulations!
I’m looking for a new Dungeon Keeper style of game. Any deadpanites have a suggestion?
and yes I’ve played Dwarf Fortress, it’s fun but I’m looking for a little less minutia management.
Dungeon Keeper, as in, the Atari ST game?
Not getting mixed up with the classic Dungeon Master?
I enjoyed the Dungeon Keeper games.
There’s one I have called Dungeons http://www.dungeons-game.com/
It’s not bad but not quite DK
Why can’t Four Peaks Brewery make the “CO2 mixing/concentration (whatever!) work on their delicious Oatmeal Stout, so that I can enjoy a growler whenever I want?
All of their others beers are available?
Short answer: stout carbonation is tricky, especially in portable glass vessels.
They may consider it a quality issue, and just prefer not to deal with it.
Agreed. Last St. Pattys day the brewery by my house came out with a small batch of nitro stout. I took a growler in and had it filled and the barkeep was adamant in making sure it was drank within the hour, lest it lose its quality. Wasnt a problem since there was 3 of us but there’s no way I would have done it by myself.
/my two cents
Has Rush not faded into obscurity yet?
Making comically outlandish statements has become the only way he can get the mainstream public to mention his name anymore.
Obviously Rush doesn’t read comics, or even wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bane_(comics)
CW: Latest Breaking Bad
I love this show.
*Wilhelm scream of delight*
Games I still need to finish: all of them.
Speaking of games, we played a lot of Gloom over the weekend. Totally recommended:
Bunny, I think you’ve played?
Yup we’ve played. It’s fun. Especially if you’ve got a dark sense of humour
Did you do the “story” aspect when you played EssBee? We found the game more fun if you made up stories about the characters, to fit the cards played as you went along.
Week four, day one of my bathroom renovations.
They laid the last of the tile yesterday. With luck, today will be grouting day.
It’s good to know work is… work.
It still claims I’m not who I say I am. I can’t even go onto this computer and check emails. Remote email client also doesn’t think I exist.
Guess it’s a good time to do something different …. like a movie while you wait 😉
CE: Cheese Bagel yum.
When they had network issues yesterday they reset the password for my computer. I got this lovely e-mail telling me this. Of course, I couldn’t read the email as I didn’t have the new password.
Finally spoke to someone on the phone and got it sorted out.
I have a a computer question.
If I were to purchase a new hard drive for my desktop this weekend, how hard would it be to install the new hard drive, mirror my old hard drive, remove my old drive and set the new one as the default?
I’m wondering if I’d be better off getting someone else to do it for me…
I would just run some sort of “clone drive” program. Shouldn’t be that hard.
Not ‘hard’ but definitely time consuming, especially if you have never done it before. Also a lot depends on what type of computer you have. Some are designed to swap components in and out, some not. Seems trivial, but it’s the difference between seconds and hours in terms of changing hardware. Also Imaging the old drive could take hours depending how much data you have on there.
That said, you could probably grout tiles while running long operations 🙂
No grouting, that’s why I hire contractors *sigh*
I have an Alienware Aurora XLS. The cover comes off easily for when I blow the dust out. That’s about all I can tell you on that side. I currently have a 1 terabyte drive that is about half full.
Should be a cakewalk. I think the AW machines have multiple hard drive ports that you can just snap drives in and out of. They might even have some disk utility that lets you copy one drive to the other.
Ok, on Sunday I’ll probably hit Memory Express and see what I can find for 1t drives
Gold star for my son. He figured out what RPG we played to the end and why I couldn’t find it anywhere. Turns out it was Playstation 1 not 2.
Bunny, Jack, Pixie, ditto, and EssBee: Thanks for the congrats above! 🙂 Yes, I will be moving to Omaha sometime shortly before August 6. And yes, I will now be almost-neighbors with ditto and TCat. :happy:
Might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but listening to the seamless 1.5 hour long version of this mashup has made my week (so far)
Yep, good album.
There, all my Boo’s critters have been fed. She comes home tonight so this is the last day I’ll be doing this.
My Raspberry Pi has arrived, let the fun begin…
Not as much fun as this guy though:
I don’t know Van. A balloon ride might be fun :happy:
Oh yeah, on a side note, my Boo texted me yesterday. Apparently her boyfriend proposed to her. Go figure.
This week gets the finger.
Index. All the way up.
Index? What does that really convey?
CP: Believe — The Northern Pikes
CD: Trying to get on top of the mess that has occurred.
The Fuss will be with you. Always.
HA! Good luck with that. I never works for me.
I = It
Well, at least the dog isn’t dead, though my pocket book is significantly lighter. 🙁
2012 hasn’t been the year for Deadpan pets. Our dog is significantly better, but not before we spent $1000 on vet bills. Good thing she’s worth it, I think.
Well, I never.
Oh yes you have
That’s what she said?
She says “never” all the time.
HA! Smell my own kind, I do
When my work system works. Life is good. Actually done for the day
Everyone should use the Bunny System.
You know, I really wish my mother would stop giving advice she knows nothing about.
Back story; I’m taking my grandmother shopping this Saturday. She’s quite excited about getting… something. My uncle is moving to Mexico. From what I can tell, my mom told my grandmother to get a tablet of some kind, get Skype and then she can talk to my uncle “free” after he moves. I completely vetoed this suggestion. First of all, my grandmother does not have, or has access to wifi. To get a 3G plan added on to whatever she buys would not be worth it. It would be cheaper for her to call Mexico long distance once a week (side note, she does this anyway as my uncle lives in BC and she lives in Calgary). Also, being the only relative in Calgary with my grandmother, I’d be the one stuck trouble shooting this thing any time it didn’t do exactly as expected.
I sent a (probably useless) e-mail to my mom to stop telling my grandmother what she “needs” without talking to me first.
CP: Wild — Beach House
Best laugh I’ve had in a while. Awesome. Thanks.
Van wins the internets. :metal:
CW– The Superman Movie on Amazon Instant Videos
CE– Pepperoni Bagel Bites
I’ve earned it dammit.
Coincidentally, I’m trying to figure out how to fly backward around the earth 8 million times.
So I’m in a silly inquisitive mood. If someone were to write your biography, what would the title be?
My Soap Opera Family
“Try to Hold Her Down”
“Try To Hold Me Down”
“Spin the Bottle: A Technique in Life Choices”
There is life after dreams have died.
“Doooooonnnn’t!!!! A Memoir.”
Bunny, we did go with the storytelling in Gloom and it did make it super fun. We also bought the expansion decks.
I’ve begun watching Fringe. From the beginning. Marathon.
I hope this goes well.
Fringe is goddamn brilliant. Dont judge by the first season. Its a completely diff show starting in season 2
can I just bypass Season 1 then?
You may find yourself on a different plane of existence if you cram it all too fast.
and they don’t allow ANY carry-ons.
Speaking of, The entire back catalog of “Eureka” is on Netflix and the Misses and I got caught up from the first episode. I need to retract my earlier comment that the series was unfocused and that certain actors were weak. The entire run was brilliant as was the acting. It seems that you really have to know what’s going on to get the show.
I’m glad SyFy sprung the extra bucks to give them a season closing episode. Unfortunately, with the way these shows are financed, it seems that five years is about the best we can expect for a run of a decent show anymore.
Five years is PLENTY. Any more than that and you have a chance of watering down the story and having unfocused and sloppy writing (looking at you Dexter).
I guess just personally I appreciate when a show knows when it has to stop.
I was quite looking forward for evidence for MOND to come to light.
Ah well, standard model it is..for now.
Fringe: the black man (the boss?) has an unusually loosely-hinged lower jaw. Its freaky
Since this is partially my week and all, I’m going to pimp this here.
I am part of it, helping out some friends.
Your crap joke for the day:
Just got my results from E-Harmony.. They matched me with a computer chair and a box of tissues.
I don’t know where Aurora is. Not near any of the Deadpan I hope.
After yesterday’s Rush rant about this movie … I can’t help but wonder if this is your just average nut or one of the Tea Party variety.
I just caught wind of the shooting this morning myself. Nasty business.
Aurora is a big suburb of Denver to the east. So yeah, its too close. Yuck.
Sorry, jJ. Didn’t see you’d already posted this.
Gotta watch The Wire, DP. Lance Reddick swooon
Holy shit, Aurora:
Yeah. Thats a FUCK of a way to wake up. SO glad Denver is becoming the mass shooting capitol of the U.S. Fucking christ. What an asshole.
Week four, Day two
Some people have far too much time on their hands:
That’s actually kind of scary, in a cool sort of way
They did install the toilet yesterday. Can’t use it but at least it looks like work is being done.
Glad to see that the CO Deadpan peeps are okay this morning. Too many nutjobs in this country.
Definitely glad you guys are OK.
CW: Breaking Bad s1 e1
Going back to the beginning with Netflix..
I hope all the Colorado deadpanites are safe after what I heard from Colorado. That’s scary news.
I hope all other deadpanites are safe and sound.
Hubby bought us subs and slurpees for lunch today. Yummers!
My thoughts to the Colorado Deadpanites… *hugs*
Hubby’s all packed and ready to leave tomorrow. He’s going to Denver to do a presentation as some sort of educational conference. I wish I could go with him 🙁
they’re installing the shower door as I type. I’m actually starting to think we might be approaching the finish line *quivers in excitement*
Well Pan, I think it may be time to play some Dragon’s Dogma.
Well pan, I have a business trip and will likely be (mostly) unplugged for the next week and a bit. Take care of yourselves.
Well czech you out.
Holy no shit? Wow. Good luck and be safe, my friend
*whiny voice*. Tell hubby to stop watching thing on you tube, I want to play my game
Ok say it with me now.
Ill say it loud and proud
Holy cleanliness Batman!!
We (almost) have a bathroom! We can’t use the tub/shower for 24 hours so the silicone can dry but everything else is usable. That’s both good and bad. Great that it’s finally done, bad in that hubby can’t use the new jetted tub until Wednesday when he gets home from Denver.
Still can’t believe I missed Bunny’s birthday.
I should be flogged.
Anything else I’ve missed in the last few … ummm weeks? Months?
Colorado 🙁 you all OK?
Oh! Oh! Oh!
Can I do the whipping? Can we both wear leather corsets? …or maybe latex catsuits??? 😉
Pics or it didn’t happen…. better yet VIDEO
Oh.. OK.. if you insist 😉
Holy crap. Massive $3 digital album sale at Amazon.
Just in case you haven’t filled your cute quotient for the day
I have to admit the beach photos are my favorite.
You’ll be reminded of this post in an upcoming Deadpan episode.
You had me at Panda
Just so you know, I’m ignoring this.
No you’re not
I do want to echo the positive vibes for the Colorado contingent. So glad you and your loved ones are safe.
All safe, and kinda tired of people turning every tragedy into ABOUT THEM.
I know, Ess. Its all Ive heard today. Its what people do anymore and its bullshit. “Oh, he was a U of C Medical School grad student? Oh I delivered my baby in that hospital you know. Wow.” or “Boy you know I live in the city next to Aurora 35 miles away…” or “You know I drove on I-70 thru Aurora once.” Neat. Fuck you. No one cares. Its not about you. Stop making it about you. Go see if the father of the 6 year old (allegedly)killed wants to hear how it “relates” to you. Fucking people need to shut up and just think about not themselves for once.
#thanks again, god
On the road again.
Currently in mid-Ohio for a family reunion.
It’s very … rural here.
Yes, it does make one wonder…
Time to open a new bottle of scotch
I struggle to come up ith the right thing to say about something this horrifying.
1. Agreed that people should just respect the victims and not *artificially* insert themselves into the tragedy.
2. People should stop blaming comics, Batman, Frank Miller, movies, etc.
3. I will shed no tears if this guy is sentenced to death.
Its true. I dont think the right thing to say is important…. its the feelings that count. It just baffles me that the 2nd and 3rd deadliest mass shootings since 1990 have taken place here. Fuckin bah.
CO hasnt had an execution since 1977. That’ll change.hio
Youre also right on the fact that bringing up the Dark Knight graphic novel as a “reason” for it is bullshit. Just ugh.
Sorry for making Deadpan a canvas for my rants, Jack.
If anyplace is cool for venting, then this is the place.
Can we get back now to pseudo-intellectual huzzah-ing over the newly discovered particle none of us truly understand?
Is he a dust or is he a spec? If hes underwater will he get wet?
Safe travels, ditto! Make sure you don’t forget Poland!
Oh, and be careful which jokes you tell while you’re there.
I hear they make a good sausage.
Poland I mean.
There would be a law against having to get up on the weekend at the same time you do during the work week
I approve this message.
I went to see The Dark Knight Rises yesterday afternoon. I really loved it. 🙂
We shall be seeing it tomorrow.
jJ, we’re off to a family reunion this weekend too. This time: my family.
The favorite self-obsessed thing I heard yesterday about the Aurora shooting: “well, I was gonna go see Batman tonight, but I guess I’ll just have to stay home and figure out something else to do. :(”
Have a great weekend, yos.
Good luck, EssBee!
Ok Deadpan, you were warned.
The first of you daily movies is called Retreat.
The DVR write up: in this gripping thriller, Martin takes his girlfriend to a secluded cabin hoping for a romantic vacation, but thing take a chilling turn when a haggard soldier shows up,mclaimingncivilization has been overrun by a deadly plague
Violence and language, no nudity
On a different note, we saw Lockout yesterday. It was mindless fun. About what you’d expect from Luc Besson
We’re soaring over ocean and mountains. Very pretty
The cell phone dies already
So far, it’s a very pretty film
My feet were hot so I took my socks off. This has nothing to do with the movie, just thought I’d let you know *shrug*
At least this couple aren’t teenagers. Just your average couple looking for some time away
Eeeewwww! What the hell is he cooking?
It’s a nice “cabin”
She’s a bit of a downer
He runs, she stays home and writes on the computer
Boy the battery on her laptop must be nonexistent. The power went out and her laptop died
Seriously, what is her malfunction?
The generator attacked Martin
For an isolated island, there sure seems to be a lot of planes that fly over
Bitch is being bitchy again
No one came for the generator., she’s upset about that
Oh my bad, can she just die already?
He doesn’t look too good
You’d think they’d at least, oh I don’t know, try to staunch his wound or something
Oh my god, the unconscious man has a gun!
I can’t believe how unbelievably stupid these people are
That sounds ominous
Better make sure the guns is still where you hid it
R1N16. The gramado flu
Stay inside and seal the house
I don’t think they believe soldier boy
You know, I liked Thandie Newton and Cillian Murphy in other movies and thought both were decent actors. At least until now
Wow, soldier boy wants her to do some work in the kitchen. Obviously he’s never dealt with her before
Seriously, who just has planks around their home in case they need to board up windows?
You’d think, after a couple of days, he would wash the blood off his face
Kate’s going to “help”
Poor Martin. I’ve never seen a man so whipped
Soldier boy is all tattooed up
You’re suppose to chop the carrots, not eat them all before dinner
That’s what you get for leading on the wacko
Wow, lay that on him too? She’s so nice
That’s what you get for telling the wacko you’re leaving
One of them escaped
Hot coffee in the face
Tonne for a midnight jaunt again
Good, real good
We all know how this movie is going to end so let’s get on with it already
Tie him up! You’re into that
Guess what Martin has?
Martin finally grows a pair
Ha! I knew it.
She’s still being unbelievably stupid
Oh look, a body in a wheelbarrow
My thought. While somewhat predictable, this movie had lots of potential. The biggest problem was I could not get past the… Idiocy of the lead femail character. She was unlike able from the start and you had no sympathy for her plight and I just couldn’t get past that
Now… I’m going to try out my new jetted tub.
Before I go, this will be tomorrow’s movie. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1630564/
Funny thing is, the IMDB writeup is nothing like my DVR writeup. It will be interesting to see what this movie really is
It looks like a TEB pbp “before they were stars” edition.
Tomorrow’s movie is more like “after they were stars”.
You know, I liked Thandie Newton and Cillian Murphy in other movies and thought both were decent actors. At least until now
Oops. What is the correct code for the smiley with the mouth that slants diagonally downward? Let’s try a couple more guesses:
:doubt: :sideeye: :shifty:
:ermm: or maybe :getlost: or possibly :unsure:
That first one was the one I had in mind.
Let’s see if it’s the same as the file name (without the extension):
Yep, that’s it. : ermm :
/Rings a bell.
Gosh darn it anyway
Hubby just called. I don’t know what we were both thinking but I thought he was coming home on Wednesday, turns out he’s gone until Thursday.
What am I going to do without my hubby for a week? 🙁
I’m laying in bed, reading for a while. I’ve confused kitty though, I’m on hubby’s side of the bed which is just wrong as far as she’s concerned
Saw the Bataman, I liked it a lot. I still think the second one is the strongest.
The Clooney one?
No, that would be the fourth one. The second is obviously the Devito one.
Oh right… with Halle Barry as Catwoman.
My new favorite song:
(It supplants Die Antwoord’s Ninja.)
I know! Isn’t it awesome? =D
So being as Batman obsessed as I am, I really want to see the movie but I feel kinda weird about it honestly. I know its all in my head but the Colorado shooting stuff scares me. Not because I think someone else is going to do it, but.. crap I don’t even know how to explain it..
Its a little bit of worry about the human race and their ability to see the difference between reality and fantasy
A little bit my fear that the movie will suck (and I hate when anything related to Batman sucks, everything about Batman should be wicked cool)
and kinda sad about the whole thing, it feels slightly wrong.
And why the hell was there a 6 year old kid at that movie? I hate going to movies like Batman and seeing kids, it really ticks me off. Saw little kids at Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter a few weeks ago. Why is violence so acceptable in our society, and acceptable for kids? Why can’t sex and love be acceptable to show kids?
ok.. these were my worries. Maybe I need a week before i see the movie. I never go opening weekend anyway. Once Hugh and I found a theater that does half off tickets plus free popcorn on Tuesdays we never went to another opening night movie. Not since those Star Wars prequel debacles that is. So we always go Tuesday’s after opening weekend/ Let’s see how I feel on Tuesday about this 🙂
I’m kinda excited to hear that the Superman previews are showing. Christopher Reeves will always be Superman in my little girl heart, but I’m open to someone new taking the reigns.
and for those of you who have seen it, how was Hathaway as Catwoman?
No Catwoman has ever done better than Eartha Kitt and Julie Newmar
I worry about Catwoman because i love her so much and they always fuck her up in the movies
Why don’t they ever call me to play Catwoman? I would TOTALLY do it! And be damn good at it too!!!
Thanks for everything, Julie Newmar.
The fighting in high heels pricked the dam of my suspension of disbelief and it burst.
But is that so out of the scope of reality next to Batman and all the stuff he does? Is her fighting in heels more or less believable than her in a catsuit with a whip being a cat burglar?
I can proudly say I can run pretty good in heels. Not a marathon, but I can run to catch my bus or train, to catch a cab, stuff like that. I guess its more of a jog really. You just get on your toes and not use the heel. its not difficult if you have practice.
I was about to get a hard drive for my computer. Just looked at the paperwork before I headed out. It turns out, a certain person who remains me got the extended warranty for her computer. Will call Dell tomorrow. They can pay to fix my damn computer
I can understand feeling like going to see Batman would somehow be endorsing that maniac’s violence but… It wouldn’t really.
How to get past that feeling, though, is not something I know.
Saw the film this morning, could be the different country vibe, but never thought I was not going to see the movie
Our anniversary is in a week and a half. I took advantage of hubby being away and just got back from getting him an anniversary gift
I worry I might be an enabler
Thats a pretty guitar. I don’t know what any of the things are, but it looks fun…. Heh.
All I know is he doesn’t have a hollow body guitar… Until now
Well, I think it’s Dragon’s Dogma time
High heels aside, enjoyed the latest batman flick.
A slice of history:
Yup, what I really want is to turn my phone into a stun gun
Ok guys, grab your popcorn. It’s movie time.
Today’s movie is called Sacrifice.
The DVDWriteup: the thrills come at a good clip a haunted cop John Hebron teams up with enigmatic priest Father Porter to recover a missing statue that was stolen from a church by violent criminals. Later, a repentant criminal reveals a treacherous secret.
On a side note, I never did like Cuba Gooding, but do like Christian Slater. This could be interesting
It has the trifecta, always a good start
A dark house in the middle of the nighT
Writing and stuff on the screen about drugs and stuff
The dictionary definition of the word sacrifice
Oh, a hockey game
$175 fine in Alberta
Wait, since when does Ottowa Senators have cheerleader?
Since when does any hockey team have cheerleaders?
Oh, silly me, I heard Ottawa and assumed it was Senators. I have no idea what team this is. What’s ottawas minor league team?
Meanwhile, CG Jr. Dons ice skates and takes down a bad guy waving a gun on the rink
Luckily, the game had ended. Ottawa took the championship
Cut to, some sort of night club.
I have no frikken idea what’s going on in this movie
You can tell he’s a bad guy. He has two girls on his lap making out with each other. No good guy would get that lucky :ermm:
A back room drug deal
… Gone bad
Back to the dark house
Sniffing dogs off the back of a naked girl
Dogs = drugs. *sigh*
Sex in the bathroom
This movie is all over the place
He wants out
His sister’s name is Angle, how appropriate
Awww, she looks like herself when she’s sleeping
Thank god, CS enters the scene
But, I don’t think he’ll be able to save this movie
Playing with the whore
Usually you keep the shredder over a garbage can. Less mess that way
Of course, shredded paper does make a nice cushion for the body to land on
Well, aren’t you the tough guy
Wesley Snipes he’s not
And again, back to the dark house
Oh, I think this is a flashback. Maybe?
Pink flower night lights
Out damn spot.
Alcahol, the cause of nd solution to many of life’s problems
She’s coming on to you dude
Yeah, put a shirt on already
Holy heroin Marys Batman
He shot him.
Who are these kids?
They broke the virgin
One statue is missing
Smuggling statues from Toronto
Oh, he’s an excop gone dealer
20 missing virgens
Do you know what sacrifice mean?
Do you, punk!
Let’s move tomorrow
Typical movie phone conversation. Don’t say good bye, just hang up
I don’t think he’s helping his. case
A house of our very own?
Jumping on the bed
You’re playing a dangerous game mike
Jade will take care of it
Sex with Jade
You can trust me. Ha!
Wow, he sings a good as I do
Every tone his phone buzzes I look at mine. I wish it would stop
Wow, that was amazing
Meet me at the rec centre
Ther’s the teddy bear!
Great a ting man
Ha ha. Killed the only person who knew
How did you know that?
Wait a minute. You live alone in a really big house with multiple bedrooms and you give the kid the couch to sleep on? Nice.
It’s a she bear
Making up a story
Flashback time again
He’s a functional alcoholic
Yes, for gods sake, clean up your mess
Tracked down the little girl
No breakfast for you
What a card shark
Don’t park on the lawn. That’s low class
Poor cg, all his female friends die or get hurt
Angel’s stalling for time
I have my doubts cops really do that
Jade will know where rook is
Cage dancing, nice
…and in case you didn’t get my fav line:
I’m afraid rook can’t come to the phone right now
I’m coming to get you
His bible is titled “good News Bible”. Has one ever been titled “Bad News”?
Yes, we must remove your jacket before we feel you up
Her teddy bear is ruined
Christian Slater really had almost no role in this movie
Beating up CGJ
Blood in the holy water
And the lord god said, bang!
He doesn’t talk like a priest
Tee here hee
You know what? This movie wasn’t half bad.
Tomorrow’s movie. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1706680/
Hubby just called. My day is now complete
Well, we did go see Batman as planned today. As I said on Facebook, overall I found it a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. It was a bit of a marathon. I think they could have tightened the run time up a bit if they cut some of the things that were building for a future/spinoff franchise. Still, it was a good ride overall. I watched my $5 Blu-Ray of the Batman Begins movie this afternoon and had some further appreciate of what was being built up over the course of the trilogy.
I thought Hathaway did a fine job as Catwoman. While it’s been a while since I’ve seen it, but I would put her on a par with Michelle Pfieffer’s portrayal, which I also enjoyed. Definitely a portral more toward the intense side rather than the campy.
As for fighting in high heels, compared to everything that Batman went through, Catwoman in heels was fairly high on the believability scale.
We seem to have a consensus. I liked it quite a bit, better than the first, not quite as much as the second. That Christopher Nolan seems to be our most reliable filmmaker, these days.
County Fair Summary:
Iris gives the kiddie rollercoaster two thumbs up! (Afterward anyway, grinned like a madwoman but with an iron grip during.)
Cameltongue is gross. (yeah, not as gross as it sounds but still gross.)
Brisket, slaw & fries in a burrito: surprisingly good, but also good that I work solo overnight. You do the math.
Even if you think you are hydrating, headache may still result. And no, not from the beergarden, just the heat.
As in, the Orange County Fair?
Sherburne County, MN, actually.
The weekend comes to a close. Boo. Delicious food was eaten by all. Good bonding time with the peeps. Building up (my) skills in Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe for future Master Championship matches in the house and late night run of Dark Night Rises.
Say Good Night, Pixie.
77ºF + 91% humidity=Gross.
Especially gross for almost 4AM…
Back to work. Blah
Where did the weekend go?
Hiding its head in shame?
Down the plug hole of time.
After much exploring and stuff, I’ve determined my computer issue can be traced to Windows (I think). Of course, since my computer came with Windows and didn’t come with a window’s disc, I now have to figure out how to repair Windows 7 without having an actual disc…
Let’s face it, I’m just grasping at straws. I have no frikken idea what the hell is wrong with my computer
It’s off to work we go! Robots camp, yay!
Nothing like the taste of aerogel roasted over a fire, or paddling a canoe with your camp mate’s head.
LOL! :happy: The reality is a bit more mundane. It’s a day camp to teach kids how robots work, and let them play with our toy robots.
I found this cool
When I get to today’s PBP it may be interrupted depending upon when the stupid bathroom people come over to discuss payment.
The sky is all grumbly and rumbly right now.
The clouds have burst open and all the birdies are getting wet.
MMMmmm, tart is good
Ok guys. It’s that time again. If it makes you feel better, this is probably the last one for the week
Today’s movie is Seeds of Destruction
The DVR writeup: Environmental activists and federal agent discover that an enormous root system, which formed from the seeds from the Garden of Eden, threatens to destroy the planet
The plant doesn’t like the cigarette smoke
Omg, the plant created air
They’re recording the polluters
Hey, my hubby has that model
Show me the money
It’s a healing tree
Oh, oh. That’s not good
That’s got to be the most bizarre looking plant I’ve seen
Yes, stop and see if the evil men are following you
I didn’t look. Is this a SyFy movie? I bet pennies it is.
Yup, SyFy. I knew it
Those seeds were not ready to be released into an uncontrolled environment
I wonder if he can fly?
I study seeds from the garden of Eden. Yup, she’s not crazy at all
Hey, it’s raining there too
Who knew roots only go up straight roads
Isn’t that a mouth wash?
Wait, it’s only going 30 miles an hour?
Told you he was lying
We have a bit of a wind storm going on (not related to the movie)
Trust no one
If we do this, we go all the way
That’s what she said… Really it is
Ummm, that sounded dirty
It’s amazing how many people in movie land, know how to hack into the DMV
In grade 8, my Boo was suspended for a week because she hacked into the school system and changed some words to NSF one.
We were both amused, proud that she could do such a thing, and angry at her all at the same time
Anyway, back to the movie.
Can his hack go faster then the root system?
Save the kitty!
Airplane, oh no!
I love how their radar system depicts the growing roots as a brown tangle on the screen. I bet many people wish they had radar like that
Let me get this straight. Plants ate growing everywhere and their first course of action is to bomb the plant system without clearing out the people in the area first? Cool
Sorry for the time out. The contractors came looking for money. I thing I’ll finish the movie tomorrow
The girl who comes round to collect the money, she’s over fifty years old (or at least looks like it), she was wearing a pink miniskirt that just barely covered her butt and towering on 4″ or so heels. That stuff just looks wrong when you reach a certain age
I got a whole $50 off the cost of my contract. They won’t be getting a reccomendation from me.
Funny thing is, I plan to do my kitchen at some time in the future. When I got my bathroom quote I also got a rough quote on redoing my kitchen. She mentioned it today when we were talking. Yeah right. Don’t expect a call from me any time soon
Don’t get me wrong, my bathroom looks pretty and the jetted tub is really nice, I just don’t know if it’s one month and 17k worth of nice.
Oh well *sigh*
That’s what I would have said if I hadn’t been too busy blinking furiously. Oy.
Many miles away/something crawls from the slime/of a dark all day meeting.
RIP Sally Ride. Truly a pioneer of the Final Frontier
indeed, I just saw the news myself. She had quite the career. I’m ashamed to admit I didn’t know she was a physicist.
I took my daughter to a local Sally Ride Science Festival last year and she enjoyed it. Definitely a recommend for those with younger daughters.
RIP Sally, you inspired a nation.
So young to pass…
as a young girl,I looked to Sally Ride as a pioneer for women and for the advancement of space exploration.
Sad to see Sally Ride go.
BTW, insomnia sucks no matter what country you are in.
That is all.
Bonnie Raitt left Harvard to work on the Rolling Stones’ Tour in 1970.
