I call “Shotgun!”
JR! You’re, um, called out in this episode. 🙂
It’s expensive to be Batman.
Time slips through my fingers like water through soil.
Crap though the official Apple Podcast app is (Switching on auto download is an excercise in frustration), it does mean I can grab this weeks episode out on the road.
Without waiting days for it to show up on iTunes store on the phone.
Stupid month end.
Jack, no show notes. Month end and all that.
On another note, I did manage to get about half my contracts keyed out. With luck, that means I won’t be up til stupid late tonight finishing before the day ends.
Just listening to the show.
“A giant rabbit vibrator”? ummm. I’m flattered… I think. (yes, my mind went there 😉 )
Jack’s ending reminds me of Space Hog album I have. There is one spot where there is 15 minutes of silence until the next some. The first time I heard it, I thought there was something wrong.
Did I leave a giant gap at the end? Opps :/
Opps you already used the opps joke
No Jack, you had spaces between what you were saying.
For some reason I really like the gaps.
Ahhh, the days of hidden tracks on CDs. How I long for them again. Hard to do in the MP3 era. Also, I really liked the first Space Hog album.
Best hidden track I found was on the X-Files fight the future CD. There was a track 0 that you had to rewind to listen to. Most people didn’t even know it was there. 🙂
NICK CAVE!!!!!!!!! I love it too!
We made to CA in one piece. It is beautiful here, thanks for all the well wishes.
Woot. Glad you made it in one piece.
Ed and Rhett in California at the same time? Just when Amy leaves? Is there some master plan in place?
CP: And I Will Kiss — Underworld
It’s the great percussion piece from the Olympic opening ceremony.
Hubby’s vacuuming the whole house while I’m working. Have I mentioned before how much I love my hubby?
Saw this documentary at the arty cinema:
I found it fascinating.
So, is he dead?
Nope, it seems he lives a simple life and goes back to tour South Africa from time to time.
Bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, BITCH!
The voicemail made me laugh out loud.
ALL 4 U, U BIG DRTY BOI!!
CP: Turn the Page – Metallica
I know it’s a cover but I really like this song. I like to close my eyes and just move to the music. Of course it means I’m not working for that five minutes but hey *shurg* what are you going to do.

You won’t keep me up all night clicking through Cracked articles. You won’t, I say!
Goodnight :5 Famously Terrible Movies (That Actually Don’t Suck) | Cracked.com http://www.cracked.com/blog/5-famously-terrible-movies-that-actually-dont-suck/#ixzz22HEyUIfo:
Not sure how much faith I want to put into an unreferenecd article on a comedy site. I can tell you that space flight (albeit in a somewhat different form) was at least done more than 50 years earlier by Edgar Allen Poe (The Balloon Hoax – 1844) and reversing polarity was a concept that showed up closer to a hundred years earlier in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1818). I also dispute the claim that in War of the Worlds “The Martians arrive on Earth via “meteors,””. The martians arrived in metal cylinders that had to have propulsion based on the fact that there was a “green mist” seen when they launched (i.e. space ships). They were mistaken for meteors by an astronomer (Ogilvy) who was simply trying to understand what the hell was going on (a common theme in War of The Worlds).
I don’t doubt that Garrett P. Serviss came up with a lot of incredible science fiction concepts, but I think the article exaggerates. In particular I think they are exaggerating the concept that Serviss was a hack. Google the guy and he looks more like an early 20th century Carl Sagan. He was, indeed, engaging in crappy copyright horribleness for this work (see also the copyright infringed book that he was actually writing a squeal to called “Fighters from Mars: The War of the Worlds in and near Boston” (1898)). But he was also an accomplished science writer.
All told, I’ve made quite a morning investigating all this, so I guess I have to thank the Cracked article after all.
Have a great day everyone,
Sir Buzzkillington Esq.
Thanks for keeping us on our toes with your excellent, thoughtful rebuttal , Sir UsedHair! Although my favorite part of it was when you mistyped “sequel” as “squeal”.
Maybe it was a typo and maybe it wasn’t :drevil:
Gore Vidal has died:
If asked I would have claimed he died Year’s ago.
A couple of free ebooks:
May not work if you don’t live in the USA.
Appears Gremlins have struck, the FTP server with the files hasn’t had it’s password removed.
Worked for me. Thank Van. I was hoping for something a little more current to read than my typical free books (e.g. Benjamin Franklin and H.G. Wells).
I think I’m going to have one of those kind of days. I put both my contacts in the same eye this morning.
Does that give the one eye super powers? That would be awesome.
Fill my eye
with that double vision
Only in the land of the blind.
Unfortunately no. All it did is keep my vision blurry, just in different ways.
Good morning Pan.
My apologies for my morbid (but true) post yesterday.
Today, I will be all unicorns, fluffy clouds and rainbows.

You can get a nasty bite from your average unicorn.
Hey pan. Busy as usual.
The behavior of the 8 women badminton players was disgraceful.

Probably my favorite song from this band. I love the piano work and backing orchestra on this song. It sounds like it belongs in a Noir movie.
An also ran, but it had a good version of Chuckie Egg:

The girl I am seeing just bought me a packet of these olympic condoms…. She gave me the silver one and said try coming second for a change.
Just for Van
Well, after the better part of a year upsampling my music library to 256 vbr, I’m finally done. Current size of music library is 182 GB.
Perhaps I have too many albums?
Is ‘never!’ the correct response?
I’m fine with that. 🙂
And as long as Amazon doesn’t fuck up my future digital purchases, I’ll be happy.
I just want you to know, I’m sick of month end.
You have my sympathy.
80 free Microsoft tech ebooks.
It is now possible to sleep in my new apartment. We’re not going to tonight, since we still have a motel room for one more night, but it is possible.
The worst mishap of the day involved our truck getting lost. I fail at leading driving caravans. 🙁 It worked out, because the item we were going to get at the time fit into my car, but it was not fun and very stressful. It’s over now, though, and now we’re off to the rodeo! :happy:
Sounds like you spent your day at the rodeo. 🙂
Hope all goes well!
Happy Chick-Fil-A day to all those hate filled, self-righteous, ignorant, hiding behind the 1st Amendment, bigots out there!
Hope CFA enjoyed it. This is a short term event staged by a minority of the fast food consumer. The customers they have lost, they have lost forever.
I agree with you, jJ, but it still has really depressed me. I was just watching my local news (channel 9) and saw a very obvious CFA ad.
I am hoping beyond hope that the huge press things like this have been getting lately is the desperate cries of the cornered animal that this perspective has become. The inevitable acceptance of gay rights is upon us and the few left standing in the past are lashing out because they don’t want to let it go. We say the same patterns with the abolition of slavery, women’s suffrage, and the civil rights movement beginning in the 60s. So I feel bad that the lashing out is going on, but extremely hopeful about the time I’m living in and how different this incident is going than if the same thing occurred in, oh say, the 1980s or earlier. There was a time, not very long ago, when CFA would have been praised for their stance rather than having fellow business partners distancing themselves left and right.
Theyre just shouting loud now, Ess. Itll pass. UH isnt wrong with his post.
… and another thing
Let’s say you have a handful of coworkers that like going to lunch together.
My experience with that group is that you enjoy each other’s company and are looking for a few minutes of relaxation.
If someone in that group is gay … the group will never be going to CFA again.
If someone in the group is a vocal supporter of gay rights … or at least an advocate of “let’s keep the government out of our personal lives” then no one in that office is going to suggest CFA because it will just lead to a stressful lunch.
Let’s say one person in that group is an right wing activist … when he says “Let’s go to CFA” the rest of the group will turn him down because who wants their lunch turned into a 30 minute political statement.
Long term, I think this was very bad for CFA marketing.
CP: Keep It Down – Kelis
This is just a wonderful, beautiful thing. http://parentingbeyondbelief.com/parents/?p=505
“Alongside science, history, philosophy and the arts, I promise to teach you about all religions and give you the intellectual freedom to wonder, question and come to your own conclusions. And if your conclusions are different from my own, as many inevitably will be, I promise to respect them.”
This is my “Rule #1” as a responsible parent. I may fail and succeed in other aspects, but on this issue there’s no wavering.
Thank you so much for the article :jack: . I am an Atheist and my wife is Catholic. Each of our two children has different religious beliefs. We are doing everything we can to live that dream.
As a side note, I’m conducting a sociology experiment. Today I have 343 friends on Facebook. I just posted that article this morning. It will be interesting to see how many people drop me as a friend even though the article has nothing but positive things to say. I’ll report back with the results.
As someone who identifies as a Christian, I am saddened by those who were afraid to have their religious beliefs questioned.
My personal experience is that, spending time thinking about those questions and even questioning myself, has only made what I believe to be stronger and much more personal for me.
My experience with “Rabid” Christians/Atheists is that they are just two sides of the same coin. The more they act out toward the other group, the more they come across as being insecure in their belief and seeming to be trying to convince themselves that they are “right”.
Get me some beer and I could go on and on about this topic all evening *rolls eyes*
Suffice it to say, no one here need ever feel awkward about expressing faith or expressing dismay with it, around me. 🙂
Crack. Stretch. Yawn.
Say Good Night, Pixie.
The Berentein Bears get in on the Chick-fil-A action. Though not as strong:
Despite my general hatred of all things politics, I’m really curious to see how this one works out from a financial standpoint. Idiots like Mike Huckabee keep claiming that this boils down to an anti-Christian sentiment (when the rest of us can tell the difference between a Christian and someone who warps Christianity as a tool to spread their messages of hatred). I have found many Christians to believe that they have the financial super power to make or break businesses because they have the sheer numbers to support or boycott with total success. I’m really hoping that enough other businesses distance themselves from Chick-fil-A that they simply can’t float. I would like to see this bold move from Chick-fil-A become a complete financial disaster and more Christians feeling comfortable distancing themselves from the anti-gay movement.
I’m upset with CFA because political stand such as this are what generates the very “anti-Christian sentiment” that they complain about.
I don’t understand why they can’t see this. 🙁
CW: Sports Center because the news makes me enraged.
Ugh, I wish it was Saturday! Do not wanna go to Evil today.
I know. I dont think Ive purposely read/watched/listened to news for a good 6 months.
While I expect work to be a little less harried now that month end is over, you can still expect me to be hit and miss on the boards for the next two weeks. WWC is next week and I am so not ready
CE: Blueberries. Yum.
On a trivial note I’ve discovered a drink in Starbucks I rather enjoy, even though I suspect it contains very little coffee.

Yea! I needed this today.

I like what you have done to the place.
Not really I am a figment of Jimmy’s imagination.
Nothing to see here.
Just got back from brunch with my Boo. French toast smothered in berries = delicious.
And, because I’m in a name dropping mood, I told Boo I couldn’t go for lunch next week as I’m taking Keven J. Anderson and his lovely wife for eats.
CP: Maladjusted — Morrissey
If Dr Pepper is susposed to be fruit flavoured (as it claims on the label) why does it taste of Marzipan?
Rather cool idea if you have multiple ioS devices on the same wifi network:
Van, the fruit in Dr. Pepper is prune, I think.
CE: An Aero bar. Yummy.
I needed some chocolate after my cat did a number on me this morning. 🙁
What happened this morning, ditto? 🙁 (FB access is a PITA, during the day. Except, not delicious)
And – ZOMG, did a Wolf wander in here this morning?!
Were the Elk entrails not a big enough clue?
This might be the greatest out-of-context comment of all time.
lmao. So true.
I had an appointment to bring one of my cats to the vet. There was a frenzied disagreement. So, no visit to the vet, but I certainly got mauled in the process. It’s a good thing I love my cat, or he might have gotten hurt.
Im sure Im about two years behind the ball; but just in case that Im not:
I haven’t seen it, but I think that was referenced in http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1325014/ The People Vs. George Lucas. Whicch, as I’ve said before, you should really watch.
Ack! you know you are getting old when you can’t focus properly first thing in the morning.
Needing corrective eye wear, I can’t focus first thing in the morning every morning since I was seven.
Remember the “First Word of the Last Four Songs on Your iPod Game”?
Hazy Neon Planet Zero. It wasn’t random, but still fun.
If ignore ‘the’ then it’s the rather boring:

I did finish off the baked beans this morning…

S3, S4, Split, VSD (these are from the last files in my library)

And I’ll share a fascinating read with you, before heading into the other room.
Looks like I’ll have to see a doctor today. The puncture wound on my finger is pretty bad.
oh No!! cat bites are always no fun. Good Luck and fast healing, Ditto.
Yeah, you should have seen my finger last night. But I have serious meds now that should address the problem. 🙂
CPIMM: Cat Scratch Fever.
Don’t mess around with cat scratches or Ted Nugent.
How are we this wet and wonderful morning before a long weekend?
It’s our anniversary today. Hubby can expect lots of cuddles. :wub:
I ditto ditto
You’d think, after 16 years I wouldn’t be so googly on him but *shrug* there you go.
Your marriage is now old enough to drive in most states!
But hey, unlike many marriages, it’s not sulky and spending too much time in the bathroom.
Sixteen good years is a great acomplishment. Congrats, you crazy kids!
Awwwwww. Never apologize for happiness, Bunny!
Congrats on the anniversary and keep on keeping’ on.
Aww! Happy Anniversary.
Congrats, Mr. and Mrs. Bunny.

Just to double check with the other ME3 fans: you all know about the free extended cut soundtrack, right?
Thanks ditto. Speaking of ME3, does anyone else think that the Total Recall reboot looks a lot like the ME universe? Specifically the flying cars and robots.
I’ll let you know. We’re going to see it on Sunday
Not opening here till August 29th..boo hiss!
Trying to relax after a hectic Friday.
Trying to scream after a primal Friday.

I knew what you meant.
CP: Chasing Cars — Snow Patrol
It always struck me as a happy song.
Yah… i guess the song is just a tearjearker & remember, Im a chick so chances are that *anything* will cause some sort of girlish emotions.
My Friday has been difficult, too. I drove all over a new town, shopped for a lot of stuff, then came home to discover that our complex’s laundry payment card system is completely out of commission. I’m currently at the laundromat.
But! I accomplished a lot of important things today. I got most of my new employee paperwork done, I started a local bank account, I signed up for cable and Internet service, and I am now the proud owner of a 24″ Samsung flatscreen TV, as well as an ironing board and some glasses and mugs. :happy:
Bunny: Congrats on the anniversary! :happy:
Good night, mush.
So my experiment was a smashing success (or failure depending on how you view it). My re-posting of Jack’s link to “An Atheist Mother’s Promise” resulted on 0 un-friending incidents. I’ve had some bad reactions to people “discovering” that I’m an atheist so I tend to stay pretty quiet about it unless I’m in an extremely accepting community like… oh say… the Deadpan community. I can’t begin to claim to have experienced anything akin to the hardships that many in the LBGT community experience, but it sure isn’t fun when family that was all too happy with everything about you suddenly refuse to talk to you any more.
Well, I’m glad people accepted your post without any grief, Mr. UH. I’d hope that people of strong faith would also read that Parent’s Promise and respect its message of love, nurturing, intellectual acceptance, and support.
One of the few good things I can say about the UK is tolerance to atheism (there are rare exceptions of course).
“Norwegian Beaver cheese.”
The world misses Douglas Adams.
I’ve never really been sure why so many American Christians take Atheism as a slap in the face. If I were to tell someone that I was Jewish or Hindu or Buddhist, they wouldn’t bat an eye. But, tell many American Christians that you are an Atheist and they react as though you just punched Jesus in the stomach.
Religion is very political here. It bothers me a great deal.
It’s a very complicated subject.
You have to start with the understanding that “Christian” is a very large, blanket term. Like the label “American” you find that one size simply doesn’t “fit all”.
Anyone the few that I have know who have had a negative reaction to atheist did so for very different reasons. One was simply ignorant of what the term really meant and so was reacting out of ignorance based fear. Atheists were “devil worshipers who ate babies” sort of thing.
Another was an religious extremist who didn’t like much of anyone who didn’t worship EXACTLY as they did. So while he had it in for atheists he also had it in for other Christian denominations.
Another guy (and I suspect this of some others) got riled about atheists but as far as I knew, he didn’t attend a church or show any other outward signs of Christian faith (like being particularly charitable or even nice). He really only ever talked about religion when he wanted to use it as a club to beat up on someone else. I suspect he adorned the title of Christian to advance in the very “right wing” world of the government, military contractor.
That being said, the majority of Christians that I interact with are very non-committal about atheists. They really don’t personally know any atheists so their only exposure is from the news (which is rarely a good way for ANY group to get good representation) and frankly, they don’t spend very much time even thinking about them either way.
JJ, I definitely try (though not always hard enough) to specify that there is only a subsection of Christians that react negatively to Atheists. I also tend to leave out that there are Atheists that take Belief as a slap in the face as well. And, as my recent experience on Facebook demonstrates, I am subject to the same fallacies of expectancy and confirmation bias that anyone else is. I’ve had great discussions and horrible discussions, with most people not caring about it one way or the other. But that makes for boring discussions about my experiences. All I can do is hope for a world where an “extreme” Islamist, an “extreme” Christian and an “extreme” Atheist meeting up will be cause no more difficulty that a meeting between an “extreme” Star Wars fan, an “extreme” Star Trek fan and an “extreme” Dr. Who fan.
Sonic Screw Driver … time travel!
Dr. Who could go back in time and disable the phasers before the Enterprise could even fire them!
…and mitachloreans? Don’t even get me started!
Now don’t get me started on the stupid dog in an alien suite or the horrendous over acting.
Crap joke for the day:

My attempt at doing a ‘Space Invader’ pic:
Your work, Van? That’s actually rather brilliant.
Yup, but just my attempt at a photo I saw on Boing Boing.
In October they are starting a major refurbishment where one of the escalators will be removed and replaced by an inclined lift, which will mean that effect will be no longer possible.

Good, but not great.
CD: Fox Barrel Blackberry Pear Cider. Also good, but not great. More looking forward to the Aloha Series Koko Brown (Ale brewed with toasted coconut) that awaits me later this evening.
The forces of evil cast quite a bozo shadow…. Over what was otherwise a pretty damn good day, culminating in a cool-as-gosh flashlight tour at the local DBG.

I pooped my kilt at the sight of the tortoise & the owl.
Crap joke for a lazy Sunday:
After being married 25 years, one day I took a look at my wife and said, “Honey, do you realize 25 years ago, I had a cheap apartment, a cheap car, slept on a sofa bed and watched a 10 inch black and white TV, but I got to sleep every night
with a hot 25 year old blond. Now, we have a nice house, nice car, big bed and plasma screen TV, but I’m sleeping with a 50 year old Woman. It seems to me that you are not holding up your side of things.”
Now my wife is a very reasonable woman. She told me to go out and find a hot 25 year old blond, and she would make sure that I would once again be living in a cheap apartment, driving a cheap car, sleeping on a sofa bed….
I shut up and took out the trash.
Clap…………………… Clap……….. clap……. clap……. clap…… clap….. clap…. clap… clap.. clap clap clapclapclapclapclapclapclapclap
Very swoony Dre in Chicagoland 🙂
and Hugh may not admit it but i think he might be a bit swoony himself. Amazing, amazing concert last night.
This is ridiculously cool stuff:
Snow and hailstones in August, the Axos must have landed*
*obscure Dr Who reference.
I was wondering if it was chilly there. The women’s beach volleyball teams are actually wearing clothes
Just got back from seeing Total Recall. I think I got more out of the movie than hubby did. He felt they tried to take themselves too seriously. He missed the over the top campiness so Schwarzenegger and Paul Verhoven. I figured, if they did that, the movie would have been universally panned. While very close the the first movie, it’s the differences that made it work for me. If I wanted a Schwarzenegger TR, I would watch the DVD we have downstairs
eam, we’ll probably see “It has Kate Beckinsale AND Jessica Biel in it” eventually. Not this weekend, tho.
Yup this movie has eye candy for all. KB and JB for hubby and Colin Farrell for me
Madness strikes again:
Fucking Christ. Just…. fuck.
Hubby and I just watch two versions of Curiosity’s “grand entrance”. One narrated by Bill Shatner, the other by Wil Wheaton. Identicle scripts. Hubby prefers William Shatner’s version, I find both ave merits. Go do a you tube search and decide for yourself
