11pm. I just might make it to midnight after all
Deadpans RockinNew Year’s Eve!
I hope everyone rings in the new year merrily.
Happy! Happy! Year of the New!
Happy New Year!
I had 1/4″ of ice on all of my windows this morning.
Where’s that global warming and why hasn’t it hit Phoenix?
Happy New Year!
My New Year is going to be spent taking down Christmas decorations
No show notes today, Jack. I’ll consider myself lucky if I even have time to listen to the episode today.
I’ll say it again – Happy New Year!
We are CW: S1 of American Horror Story. Marathon time.
I actually recorded the entire S1 myself but something happened with the channel and all the episodes were non-watchable. Will have to wait until it comes to Netflix before I can watch it. 🙁
We’re watching on Netflix streaming now – hopefully you get it up North soon!
Happy New Years Deadpan.
CD – Well into the Rose Parade. HGTV’s incredibly insipid coverage.
Why did I first read this as, Currently Drinking…?
Surprise! Solder husband brought home.
1st Cav Horse Division
Dog gets to ride on the wagon. Wants to bark the news to all.
I want to be in donesia
High School all star Band.
Swell, patriotic outfits.
Probably sound good but who can tell with the inane chatter.
I think the horses are Arabians because the Mrs. Ladies look awfully Caucasian.
Oh good grief.
Charlie Brown is in this parade?
It’s a “Love Float”.
Christmas is now dead in my house.
A live wedding float? REALLY?
I want to go.
A VERY Turquoise Band!
They let us hear 10 seconds worth before cutting to an insert interview of I don’t know who.
Korean War Memorial
More Horses … and A MOUNTY!
Korean War float again
B2 bomber flyover
New Orleans area band
Chemistry lab float!
Really pretty neat looking.
My favorite so far.
Charro Team horses
Flying penguin float.
Formulas and exhaust flumes.
Pride of Broken Arrow Band
They are rocking the black and white, Art Decco look
Deep Sea Adventure float
MArching Band from Puebla, Mexico
They should call themselves the “Marching Sombreros”
Do I want to get Deus Ex:Human Revolution? The enhanced edition is $7.50 on Steam.
Never mind. I can’t seem to get a third person mod for it so it will be yet another game I can’t play *sigh*
Black horses pulling a wagon full of flowers.
looks like a hearse.
A horse hearse.
31 states of vintage tractors.
Seminole, Fla marching band
playing every adult’s nightmare
Silver dollar eucalyptus
Tower bridge and others … nice float
Lexington KY Band
he said “Rose PArade UNIT”
A badly lip synced pop number. THAT is exactly what this parade was missing.
Shame they found it.
Great, pole puppet though.
“The Sky’s the limit” – festive
Cow Girl CHicks.
They are standing in the saddle.
Wow. That was an abrupt ending.
It’s just over.
Well, that was your 2013, Tournament of Roses PBP.
I hear that parade smells amazing. No, really.
I can’t decide which drives my cat crazy the most. The sound of the squirrels as they run across my roof, or watching the damn bunnies as they run across my yard.
j0e: Django was really fun! Christoph Waltz and Leo DiCaprio were standouts!
I don’t know if I require this for my birthday, but it’s still a damn cool cake.
I wonder what games the other two sides are…
Finished Darksiders now… what to play next.
I think I’ll switch it up and play The Walking Dead
For those of us who like to plan ahead– here is what the stars have set up for our viewing pleasure in 2013
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_ht9skgEF0&feature=youtu.be Holy crap, they’re so young.
This is fantastic…
So ummm missed the new episode posting.
Happy New Year Deadpan
Well, at least you were in good company, my friend.
Oh my god. 0430 came early this morning. Jesus this day will be long.
Our alarm rings at 4:30 too, Pixie. Good company!
Way too early for me.
Way too early is right!
Usually my alarm for work screams at me at 0515
I don’t like to get up before 6.
We do tend to hit snooze once or twice every now and then, but we are early birds. I like to get up and work out before I really know what’s happening to me, because otherwise I may not do it.
Im surrounded by lots of elderly people, all of whom are waiting to get new hips and knees.
Ahhhh Sun City, Arizona on a crisp winter’s morning.
You might enjoy ‘Quartet’ then…
Pixie’s Sun City,
On a crisp winter’s morning.
CP: Destroy Everything You Touch — Ladytron
I picked up the greatest hits during one of Amazon’s holiday sales. If you love Metric, you’ll probably love this band too.
Ain’t gonna play Sun City.
4:30 am = 🙁 I recall the days when that was bedtime.
I had forgotten about that song.
I recall 4:30 as bedtime too. Oy.
This week has been wonderful. Usually we get up at five but, with hubby on holidays, we’ve been sleeping in until eight. I wish it could continue.
For those who (don’t) read romances
A Memory of Light comes out next Tuesday. I am all aflutter.
I’m CR: The Passage — Justin Cronin
He’s from your ‘hood, Ed. He teaches at Rice.
I’d recommend this one, even though it took an odd “steal from Walking Dead” turn there for a minute. It’s a end-of-the-world story that’s unique and really, really well-written. I’m about 100 pages from finishing it and will definitely pick up the second book (it’s a trilogy – as yet unfinished), The Twelve, once I’ve finished A Memory of Light.
I’m CR one of Pip Ballantine’s books, Spectyr.
How are you liking it so far?
First crap joke of the New YEar:
A hippie gets onto a bus and sits next to a nun in the front seat. The hippie looks over and asks the nun if she would have sex with him. The nun, surprised by the question, politely declines and gets off at the next stop. When the bus starts again, the bus driver says to the hippie, “If you want, I can tell you how you can get that nun to have sex with you.” The hippie of course says that he’d love to know, so the bus driver tells him that every Tuesday evening at midnight the nun goes to the cemetery to pray to the lord. “If you went dressed in robes and some glowing powder,” says the bus driver, “You could tell her you were God and command her to have sex with you.”
The hippie decides to try this out. That Tuesday, he goes to the cemetery and waits for the nun. Right on schedule, the nun shows up. While she’s in the middle of praying, the hippie walks out from hiding, in robes and glowing with a mask of god. “I am God, I have heard your prayers and I will answer them but you must have sex with me first,” he says. The nun agrees but asks for anal sex so she might keep her virginity. The hippie agrees to this and quickly sets about having sex with the nun. After the hippie finishes, he rips off his mask and shouts out, “Ha ha, I’m the hippie! ”
The nun replies by whipping off her mask and shouting, “Ha ha, I’m the bus driver!
“gets off at the next stop”
You’re falling down on the job Van, I heard this one before.
This is a good one! I’d heard this one before (Lo Pan?), but not yet this year!
Damn you Steam *shakes fist*
*sigh* Oh well, I guess I won’t have to buy any games for 2013… except maybe Sim City.
Steam has been playing up for me tonight, games bought don’t show up on my library list and frequent crashes.
I know how you feel. Both KotoR games for $5 total. The Tomb Raider franchise for $15. Dark Souls for $20.
I’m going to have to pass, though I want some of those. I have too big a backlog as it is.
Luckily I’ve played all The KotOR games. For a reason I just can’t pin down, I’ve never been interested in the Toomb Raider series. Did get Dark Souls, though.
Did play the first chapter of Walking Dead last night. Quite enjoyed it. Hubby, who was in the room at the time, didn’t realize it was more like an interactive comic than a straight up game. *shrug*
I’ve got the first ep. I need to play that and get the 4 other episodes.
It’s a good thing I’m not working. I’ll need this extra time to play all the games I got.
I have a very strange yet wonderful hubby. We usually split the house work. I told him, since I’m not working, I should, at least, take over some of his housework. He gave me these sad, puppy dog eyes and said, “but I like vacuuming”
That’s very hard to argue with.
It’s also just as well I don’t play first person games or my Steam purchases would be much worse, there are many of those I would love to play if they were in third person or had a third person mods.
Ok, this page is an offshoot of the one I posted earlier. Still damn funny
CP: 23 — Blonde Redhead
Means I love you.
Live for today?
(I do dig the MBV production on this tune)
The continuous ingestion of nutrients, caffeine and sugar is what is keeping me awake this afternoon.
I initially read “nutrients” as “tourists”.
Hey, go with it … it made me laugh and it’s not like there is any shortage of tourists around there.
(This bears repeating)
Tonight’s episode of “Mobbed” is an awesome reminder of The Gift of Giving Life through organ donation.
Get educated on becoming an organ donor or become an organ donor if you are not already. #DonateLife
I’m not sure how it is in the states but we have a spot on our driver’s licence we can sign if we are ok with donating
Rufus almost definitely is.
And I’ll sign off with what was possibly MST3K’s finest moment, Mr. B Natural.

Breeders rehearsal footage from the 31st!
Oh. My. God.

Who are the Breeders? 😀
CP: Collapsing At Your Doorstep — Air France
Thanks for the card, Jack :happy:
OK Colorado people… WTF? Seriously… WTF?
Rocky Mountain Oysters, my friend!
That’s not how I remember the John Denver song.
Cant be any worse that real oyster stout.

Earl Grey, hot.
*grumble, grumble stupid Steam*
*Make us wonder, “why so mean?”*
I takes my money. Only $5 today, but still…
Finished episode 2 of walking dead. Think I might do something else before I start episode 3. I can take only so many tough decisions.
Dashcam circa 1926. Neat
little known fact
Except when shot that way for comic effect, movies from the early years of the film industry were not originally “jerky” as they appear now.
The “jerky” motion that is now attributed with old films is due to the use of an in-accurate frame rate when they were transfered to video.
In the early days of film, when cameras were hand cranked, film speed rates were more of a “guideline” then “standard”. Often, the same company that shot the film would also process it and show it in their own theater using their own hand-cranked projectors. Thus, you had a variety of film speeds being used.
Eventually, the frame rate standard of 24fps was adopted and then in the mid 1950’s a 2nd standard (because apparently “standard” means “more then one”) of 30fps (29.97) was adopted for use with film being shot for video broadcast.
Curiously, if care were taken to transfer old movies at a frame rate that produced “normal” motion, most viewers would think something were wrong with it.
I made the mistake of putting the Spyro 3 (Playstation 1 game)in my PS3, then ended up playing the game for quite a while.
I got 100% everything in the first two Spyro games but never in the 3rd one, think my challenge for this weekend is sorted.
I almost forgot to say, we watched John Carter last night. WTF was that?
A very expensive Disney movie.
That was about 30 Dizznee execs losing their jobs as well.
I liked John Carter. Terribly marketed but a fun film. I did read (listen) to the original “A Princess of Mars” novel shortly before the movie came out.
Too bad we probably won’t get any more of the stories.
Did you really?!
I’ve been watching Friday Night Lights as I work out in the morning and do like that actor.
Can’t say I was familiar with the actor before John Carter. Though, he did go on to equally dubious box office success with Battleship.
And, while Battleship was pretty damn cheesy, I must confess I enjoyed more than the Transformers movies.
He was in Friday Night Lights, the TV show.
Oh he was in Battleship! We enjoyed – or at least I did – that one.
Wasn’t he also Gambit? He’s fucking horrible. I don’t need to repeat my views on Battleship. 🙂
Still, I didn’t think John Carter was bad, definitely not as bad a its reputation. It helps to have waded through Burroughs’ original mess of a story, to appreciate that anyone made a sort-of coherent film out of it.
CW: The Spy Who Came in from the Cold
Claire Bloom will have to be added to my retro obsession list.
Paddington bear approaches the welsh dragon.
For the metal fans: Here’s an instrumental metal band from Germany: Mad Mav
I try and listen this weekend.
I’ve totally blown away by Spin’s best metal of 2012 mix tape. There is a link to download it for free here: http://www.spin.com/articles/best-metal-albums-2012
The Spin dudes have good taste.
But I’ve fallen in love with another Japanese punk band. Tracking down their stuff now….
Might be a bit metal for your tasted, ditto, but this still sounds like something to pique your interest:
Possibly John of the Bunny too.
Thanks. I’ll check them out.
He was Gambit, Jack! I think I blocked out Wolverine – might have to see that again.
Still, I like him on Friday Night Lights.
It appears twitter may have demonstrated some shred of value. It also appears to have found signs of intelligent life, at least in orbit.
Hailing frequencies open:
CP: Engines of Our Ingenuity 2046: Beginning with Conclusions
One of the better recent episodes. It talks about people constructing arguments based on foregone conclusions.
That sounds like Evil’s business practice! I’m gonna check it out.
It’s a great podcast. I believe Ed introduced me to it. It tends to focus on historical innovation and engineering, but with a very human perspective. Episodes are around 4 minutes in length.
CP: Circleend — Kishida Kyoudan & The Akeboshi Rockets
Sister in-law update: It appears that our initial hopes that she would recover were misplaced. Even though Barbara’s heart condition is treatable, the length of time her brain was deprived of oxygen has left her severely brain damaged. She has brain stem function and her body responds to pain, but there is no higher level activity at all. Most likely she will stay in this vegetative state until she passes.
That really sucks, Rhettro. You have our deepest sympathies.
I’m very sorry, Rhettro.
Very sad news
I appreciate it guys. I just wanted to keep everyone in the loop.
I’ll add my condolences too, Rhett. Very sad news.
oh no. Im so terribly sorry for this development. 🙁
Please let me know if there is anything I can do.
Truly sorry about that, Rhett. Keeping your family in my thoughts.
Goddammitt Rhett. So sorry.
Oh Rhett *hugs*
Thanks again everyone.

stupid Steam putting Sleeping dogs as one of their sales.
Me: Stupid Steam
Hubby: More games?
Me: If I say no will you take that at face value?
Hubby: of course not
He knows me too well.
*sigh* luckily, I think this weekend is the end of the holiday sales.
I’m deliberately avoiding the site at this point.
Have you heard of the concept of ‘resisting temptation’?
You’d be amazed at how much I’m not buying 😆
I think they saw that comment!
CP: Fearless — The Bravery
CP: Last Splash
over and over again since ditto’s link yesterday
I’ve started the Mongoliad, but I dunno so far. Anyone else read this?
Is that like the Belgariad, only further east?
I wasn’t interested in the description of that one.
Doesn’t he work for the baker?
Why yes…yes I did read that as “Mongoloid”.
Cause he wore a hat and he had a job, after all.
Based on the trailers, I’m interested in seeing “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters” and the new Die Hard movies.
And the new “Evil Dead” movie doesn’t look bad, but the trailer has some seriously squick-factor moments. *shudder*
I’ll definitely be renting all of them when they make their way to Redbox. Can’t say any of them look strong enough to justify first run theater prices for me.
We only go to matinees nowadays.
Who are they getting to play the Bruce Willis part for the Die Hard remakes?
I’m not a fan of the new music in Halo 4.
Nor the new version of Cortana. Other than that, I found the game enjoyable. I’ll skip all the multiplayer stuff. The clip at the end was pretty interesting.
I’m falling for the trailer to see Dark Skies– it really reminds me of Poltergeist and *that* move had the creep factor!

CW: Disc 1 1987 Canada Cup — squeee
They’re all so young.
Your icky picture of the day at:
Crap joke for the day:
A guy goes to a doctor and says, “Doc, you’ve got to help me. My penis is orange.” Doctor pauses to think and asks the guy to drop his pants so he can check. Damned if the guy’s penis isn’t orange. Doc tells the guy, “This is very strange. Sometimes things like this are caused by a lot of stress in a person’s life.”
Probing as to the causes of possible stress, the doc asks the guy, “How are things going at work?” The guy responds that he was fired about six weeks ago. The doctor tells him that this must be the cause of the stress. Guy responds, “No. The boss was a real asshole, I had to work 20-30 hours of overtime every week and I had no say in anything that was happening. I found a new job a couple of weeks ago where I can set my own hours, I’m getting paid double what I got on the old job and the boss is a really great guy.” So the doc figures this isn’t the reason.
He asks the guy, “How’s your home life?” The guy says, “Well, I got divorced about eight months ago.” The doc figures that this has got to be the reason for all of the guys stress. Guy says, “No. For years, all I listened to was nag, nag, nag. God, am I glad to be rid of that old bitch.” So the doc takes a few minutes to think a little longer.
He inquires, “Do you have any hobbies or a social life?” The guy replies, “No, not really. Most nights I sit home, watch some porno flicks and munch on Cheetos.”
Does anyone have a good recommendation for a mahjong game on the iPad? Not the solitaire version, but the real game. Thanks!
I’d love to sit down at the mahjong table with the old ladies at Barnes & Noble. With actual mahjong tiles. That’s some hardcore O.G. gaming right there.
Tried playing a few versions for Windows 3.1, never could get into the game even if the virtual tiles looked pretty.
“Her teeth were white lies”?
I don’t even know what that means.
Sorry, this should have been part of Van’s link

Another cool raspberry pi project:
Sorry to hear the news, Rhettro. 🙁
Assholes are ass holes.
Clarification needed — no Pannites are assholes
OK, OK, aside from me, no Pannites are assholes.
Awesome gaming with Ess and Sly B is awesome.

CW: Boardwalk Empire S3E3
So, I took advantage of a sale to pickup the first season of Homeland for $20 a few weeks ago. The wife and I watched all twelve episodes in about two days.
Got to see the first episode of season 2 this evening as part of a free preview that Showtime is running. Dammit, I may have to break down and subscribe.
I had the first part of a beginner’s brewers class today. I rather enjoyed it. 🙂
Next MMMmmeetup in ditto’s lab!
Heh. I’d be afraid of what Lost Ralph would say. lol

Showtime is great, Ed. Nurse Jackie is one of my favorite shows and Shameless is excellent.

Stupid coffee. I ordered 3 boxes of medium for my machine and they sent me 3 boxes of Pecan Praline. The packing slip says medium, the contents do not. What am I suppose to do with 3 boxes (equal to just over 100 cups) of Pecan coffee?
Do you see dead people now?
You know, I had no idea what you were talking about. Thank goodness for Google http://www.badscience.net/2009/01/drink-coffee-see-dead-people/
The answer is no, I only have one cup in the morning and have no intention of changing that, regardless of what the coffee company tries to make me do.
I was thinking of medium, but what the hell.
Don’t watch that sow, sorry

Today’s movie is Detention. The DVR write up:
A group of high school seniors flee a mysterious killer after being thrown in to a 12 hour detention by their hard nosed principal. Meanwhile, life in their small town grows increasingly surreal in this inventive horror satire
This movie is not to be mistaken with he movie Detention, with David Carradine. I think I did a PBP on that one a while ago http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0990363/

CP: The Fear — Lily Allen
We saw Looper the other day. While we did enjoy the movie, we both agreed the whole premise of the movie falls apart with one action that occurred in the movie
For me it fell apart when the young looper started remembering things the old looper should have remembered.
I did a movie review on this one. I’m old. I’m cynical. I hate when movies try to do something cleaver and it winds up stupid.
Other than the ending, which I felt was botched, I loved Looper. The ending ruined it for me.
On a side tangent, I’m loving all the Prometheus youtube videos that ask question after question and poke fun at the movie. I think I’ve watched more minutes of reviews than the length of the movie 😀
*MORE POTENTIAL SPOILERS*
For me it was the death of his wife. Think about it.
There were several disappointments in the story. It could have been so much more. It’s not as disappointing as Prometheus, but it was still overly hyped and didn’t deliver.
Some days I think I should stick to animated movies 🙂
Also, season 3 of Lost Girl started yesterday. It was fun
I don’t think we get it in the states for a while yet. My wife waits impatiently.

My goal is to do another Wednesday this week.

Wait… was the first Wednesday Addams?
Back from a really good lunch with a friend. We talked lots, ate some, and strategized some. It was good.
Ok, without admitting to anything, let’s say it’s been years since I’ve had a Facebook account so am not up on any changes since then. Let us also say I wanted to follow a company on FaceBook. Let us also say I’m on their FaceBook site right now and I’m looking for a “friend” or “join” button. With all those hypothetical parameters, where would I find said button (said hypothetical company, just for reference http://www.facebook.com/tychebooks?fref=ts)

Is your daughter going to become a Quinn?
Nope, all coincidence. :happy:
You almost had Lo Pan and I as wedding guests you know.
BOY ILL SAY!
She would be truly mighty if that was the case.
Come on without, Van
On a different note, what is a good Skype recording program. I’m ok with a small cost.
I used Powergramo for years, but I think the one o have now, creatively named “Skype Recorder”, is a little better. If you have a Mac, then AudioHijack should do the job for you.
no Mac. I’m a PC Gal 😉
Powergrammo basic is free and worth playng with before splashing out on more expensive software.
Not my money I’m spending. Will look into PowerGramo anyway. The less money I do spend is probably the better.
Ok, I’ve downloaded it. Don’t actually need it until the end of the month but, those who know me know, I’m very much a “GOTTA DO IT NOW!” kind of person.

I went to a wedding at which a rock star, Adrian Young from No Doubt, was in attendance once. Tegan and Sara would be better!
And I’m not sure that I’ve mentioned to you guys that I “met” Linda Perry once.
I hope you keep reminding us.
*activating “vicarious thrill” mode*
Isn’t Linda Perry the one who sings “I Kissed a Girl”?
That’s Steve Perry.
Jack, why can’t I find the date for this year’s CopperCon? Is it called something else now?
Never mind. Aug 8 – Can’t make it WWC is on at the same time.

Crap joke for the day:
Scottish couple decided to go to Spain to thaw out during a particularly icy winter.
They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier.
Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel schedules.
So, the husband left Glasgow and flew to Barcelona on Thursday, with his wife flying down the following day.
The husband checked into the hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an email to his wife.
However, he accidentally left out one letter in her email address, and without realizing his error, sent the email.
Meanwhile, somewhere in Blackpool , a widow had just returned home from her husband’s funeral.
He was a minister who died following a heart attack.
The widow decided to check her email expecting messages from relatives and friends.
After reading the first message, she screamed and fainted.
The widow’s son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read:
To: My Loving Wife
Subject: I’ve Arrived
Date: October 16, 2008
I know you’re surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send emails to your loved ones.
I’ve just arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow.
Looking forward to seeing you then! Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.
P.S. Bloody hot down here!
I slept in. It was wonderful.
Now I have this giant ToDo list I need to tackle today.
CP: Marching Song — Esben and the Witch
Is this week going to get easier?
Just a tad bit is all I ask.
Wait, what? -30 tomorrow? But it’s +5 now. I don’t think I can handle that kind of change
On another note, in half an hour, this: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1650537/
Today’s movie is Inkubus
The DVR write up: in this terrifying supernatural thriller, a demon enters a police station and confesses to a crime. But as the night stretches on, it quickly becomes apparent that he has a diabolical plan, and that no mortal can stop him.
A joke for Van, a demon walks into a police station…
Go easy on Robert Englund.
No nudity? What kind of B horror is this?
Hospital lights been
While unseen noises creep
Been = beeps.
Stupid auto correct
A child is being born
Mom looks good, if a little forlorn
No, no, no! She screams
While baby rips through, into the scene
In a corner, wrapped up tight
In the asylum, daddy fights
Strange visions dance in his head
Of demons, sex, and blood that is red
Wood haven police station, our story now sets
Sex on a desk, was it a bet?
Her boss disappears. Where did he go?
She’s all alone, with nothing to show
The doctor asks about magic, to patient Tom
Inkubus, Tom says, and mentions the mom
Really WordPress? I was just getting my grove on and you have to hiccup?
Ok, let us continue
A flashback to that fateful night
At the police station, where they had such a fright
Miles is handcuffed to a post
His girlfriend is dead did he call the host?
Robert England is standing behind Jenny
He cut her head off and flipped it like a penny
Out the window he jumped with a bound
Without making a single sound
The cop gives a lecture, you are a liar!
Where is her head! Your pants are on fire
In walks RE, looking suave and debonair
He brings Jenny’s head. Holding it by her hair
Take the kid and put him in a cell
Just in case he has something to tell
RE’s one call is to a strange man
Remember Inkubus, I know you can
Justified got off to a bit of a rocky start with the first episode of the new series.
Sorry to bother you, says the cop on the phone
I am already disturbed, you’re just a drone
He calls a doctor, says come right away
You’ll never guess, I heard from Inkubus today
They check RE’s van, it’s full of the dead
Flies and larva are crawling, using them for a bed
A strange book has been found
Strange drawings abound
How old are you? 100 he says
They don’t believe him in so many ways
His cuffs are off, they’re in a bind
All is back, he’s messing with their minds
The prints are wrong, each finger is wrong
10 different dead, to which they belong
The captain arrives, can it be true?
Inkubus is back from out of the blue?
Fast forwarding through the police hallway
He can hear everything that they say
Back history on demon live birth
Only slightly relevant, for what it’s worth
The cop says I can out stare you
I have my doubts that this is true
Why are you here, RE is asked
In your fear, I wanted to bask
13 years ago someone took the blame
For murders which I should have the fame
We’re done here the cop starts to yell
Oh but there so much more to tell
He starts naming girls who have died
Those all can’t be yours, the cop decried
RE states, I am not Turing myself in
I just have unfinished business, with him
Abra-fucking-cadrabra RE says with a sigh
The games have begun as he flies
Switching places with the cop, no one can see
He has lots of places to be
An APB on Inkubus now
We need to find this ‘effin cow
The one cop is scared, we’re all gonna’ die
Any minute now, he might cry
Want to have fun RE whispers in the air
Listen to me, if you dare
Size me up, he says to the shrink
Ok, she says, I think you’re a dink
Te kids says, We are so fucked
Just wading through what isn’t muck
The hallway’s the same. One giant maze
All are confused, in a big daze
More body parts, on shelves and on floor
I pity the cop that looked through that door
The wall is red. Is it blood or paint?
We know for sure, RE is no saint
Unlucky in love he says to the shrink
Your lick’s run out, she says to the dink
RE uses a microwave to kill
I’d hate to see that electric bill
We’re all going to die, the kid says again
Shut up says the cop, you’re my bane
(Yeah, yeah. You try doing this)
RE’s the kid saying things to provoke
Te cop kills he kid, his life was revoked
Back to the asylum, the doctor doubts
That story is one of your psychotic bouts
The radio still doesn’t work
He pulls off the headphone with a jerk
Miles you killed him, the cop is aghast
It wasn’t me, he says and gives his last gasp
You cannot move, RE says, showing his knife
Then he stabs, causing more strife
The shrink is gasping, letting out a small moan
Captain Gil is forced to watch, it makes him groan
I’ll halve the doctor as a tribute to you
I feel alive, showing this view
Now we all see two halves of a shrink
Magic he says, making us think
Who is that, in the corner he is crying?
A young man, his son, who should have been dying
Take my hand, the young man reaches
Your my son, I love you, the cop preaches
He’s a good father, the kid says of RE
I’m no longer your son, can’t you see?
He’s a demon, Gil says to his son
We all have to face them, even this one
Cut to the cop couple, on the run
She turns to him, this oven has a bun
The cop yells, you’re not my son
Then he pulls out his gun
It ends tonight demon, and shoots himself
RE is angry and shows his true self
Back to the psych ward, you killed Inkubus?
And reborn in your wife? Stop making a fuss
Truth is, your wife died in child birth
I’m telling you it’s a demon for what it’s woth
He’s crazy says the doctor, put him in a jacket
He needs to calm down, stop making that racket
All that rhyming was so gallant.
We’re all impressed with Bunny’s great talent.
And now our tale comes to a close
End credits with pictures of demons in droves
If cats could talk:
EssBee and LoPan!
