Holy carp! I’m still awake! I will need to remedy that 🙂
Listening to episode 4. Listening to Chris the fixed kitty talk about Dirk Moonfire & the Nefarious Space Women. Hey Jack! We should ressurect that project. #jjstsaying.
I think it’s time to go to bed. I’m getting loopy.
Distracted by the humdrum mechanics of life.
-21 and snowing Pan! -36 with the wind chill. Welcome to winter in Canada.
Wow am I quiet
I couldn’t hear you at some points.
I mad Jack swear
I won’t ruin your day and tell what the temps will be here today 🙂
As an Anti-SAD sufferer, I will feel all smug that it’s not Sunny and hot here.
I see the wiki lumps the summer blues in with winter, but that’s a recent thing.
Basically for me, hot and sunny weather week after week (it does happen in the UK on the odd occasion) depresses the hell out of me.
Wow, you didn’t seem that bad when we were in Arizona 😉
The short stay and pleasant company kept the blues away.
It’s Arkham Horror not Arkham Asylum.

New Tegan & Sara locked and loaded!
End of April works for me, atm. I can go wherever is decided.
I bet you will…..
Watched Iron Sky last night. Holy jeesus what a glorious piece of film that is.
I may have to rent that one.
Netflix instant watch if you have it. Its well worth an an hour and a half of your time.
We quite enjoyed that one too.
Need a pep talk?
AND IT HURT, MAN!!!!!
Im in. 100%
“I love Space Jam” 😆
I watched “Downton Abby” for the first time last night.
Downton Abby needs a pep talk. Desperately.
Well Pan off to the flicks to see the new Arnie film.
He looked rather old in the trailer, maybe he attacks the guys with a Zimmer frame..
I’ve heard it’s a return to the old fun of the 80s action flicks. I’ve been wanting to see this, so I look forward to hearing your opinion.
Was a fun action movie (nephew enjoyed it as well), Arnie not taking himself too serious (a few quips about his age), worth checking out.
Excellent! Thanks, Van.
It’s a hard knock life. (Did anyone else misread “Arnie” as (“Annie”?)
Sweet! New Redwood Plan next month.
CP: Panic On — The Redwood Plan
Boy, does it ever feel good to get caught up on sleep. :happy:
Jack: I would love to co-host an episode before 288.
Thoughts on the mmmmeetup :
I can travel as easily to either location. Would we be flying into Denver?
Late April time frame looks promising. I’d put order of preference at April 27-28,May 4-5, then April 20-21.
May 11-12 is Mother’s Day, so that one is definitely out.
CP: Go With The Flow — Queens Of The Stone Age
I survived the vampires. More importantly, I can eat now. Why vampires want you to starve yourself before they feed is beyond me.
The last weekend of April or the weekend look ok to me.
I need to check whether it’s going to be financially viable to make a trip this year, I’ve had a lot of medical tests over the last year which have turned up nothing but will up the medical insurance for the trip.
First part of April is out because of Gymnastic season for a Denver meetup. Late April maybe, lots of variables could impede my ability to attend.
I might have to watch that one with my son now. LOL
Include me in on a chat with Jack before THE END of Deadpan.
Slaughterhouse 5 was suggested as a topic at one point…
More Tegan & Sara goodness:
I, too, can travel just as easily to the Denver area or the Phoenix area.
I don’t have any other commitments around late April/early May that I know of, so I can come whenever is most convenient for everyone.
Apple tech support update:
I just spent a full hour on the phone with a succession of people. Here is the current status of the situation:
-The email address that originally functioned as my Apple ID now does so again. There is a new password associated with it, and it works. I used it to go into the Apple ID management section of Apple’s website and set up my contact and security information correctly.
-All the music in my iTunes library is still there, including the protected stuff I bought back in 2006. (CP: “Walk the Plank,” Track 6 of the soundtrack of the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie, which is one of said protected items.) I will definitely make backups of all my iTunes purchases in the morning.
-There is an internal block in place that prevents whoever hijacked my Apple ID from using my credit card number to buy stuff.
-That block applies to the credit card number I put into iTunes when I first started buying stuff from iTunes. In order to buy more stuff from iTunes in the future, I will have to input my other credit card number. I am okay with this.
-I have a case number I can reference if I encounter further issues in the future.
*sigh of relief*
Good night, mush.
Wait…. did JR really start us off with THAT topic?
If morning has broken, who should I call to repair it?
Calgary vs. Avs tonite in a battle of “which team is least terrible”.

Jack/Bunny, if we do meet in CO, we have lots of the games you guys mentioned. I’d be excited with Jack to play some Catan, we have Munckin, we have Elder Sign, Killer Bunnies. Lots of fun ones!
Also, we can work with any weekend, but some weekends in April will count out Sly B for most activities. The first weekend in May would be ideal for us, but we’re flexible!
I was going to call back to the “Tia Chi/Chi Tea” post from earlier … but I got lazy.
Strange things are afoot with the Deadpan feed.
Just no getting the chicken entrails out to ‘read’ the future.
You ain’t kidding. Apparently we had a shooting close to our office. Police chopper is circling and patrol cars are in our parking lot at the moment.
Mostly noisy with the chopper doing constant circles overhead. Lunch should be interesting. LOL
Looks like the shooting took place two buildings south of my location.
What a world…
So far “only” shooting “injuries”, not deaths have been reported. I hope it stays that way.
Crap joke for the day:
A boss wondered why one of his most valued employees had not phoned in sick one day.
Having an urgent problem with one of the main computers,he dialled the employee’s cell phone number and was greeted with a child’s whisper.
“Is your daddy home?” he asked.
“Yes,” whispered the small voice.
“May I talk with him?”
The child whispered, “No.”
Surprised and wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, “Is your Mommy there?”
“Yes,” whispered the small voice.
“May I talk with her?”
Again the small voice whispered, “No.”
Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss asked, “Is anybody else there?”
“Yes,” whispered the child, “a policeman”
Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee’s home, the boss asked, “May I speak with the policeman?”
“No, he’s busy”, whispered the child.
“Busy doing what?”
“Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman,” the whisper answered.
Growing more worried as he heard what sounded like a helicopter through the earpiece on the phone, the boss asked, “What is that noise?”
“A helicopter.” answered the whispering voice.
“What is going on there?” demanded the boss, now truly apprehensive.
Again, whispering, the child answered, “The search team just landed the helicopter.”
Alarmed, concerned and a little frustrated the boss asked, “What are they searching for?”
Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle. “ME” ….
Speaking of what a world… stay classy teach…
That’s not like any of the high school teachers I had growing up. Dang.
IT never is 🙁
Sounds like something my mom would have done if twitter existed then (she was a high school teacher)
Wha wha wha WWWHHHHAAAAAAT?
Mom was written up twice, that I know of, for public nudity so… *shrug*
I thought public nudity was legal up in Canada. Of course given the temps, it’s seems like a self policing issue.
I’ve only read Whipping Star:
Really neat APOD today:
Wow! That is totally MST3Kish!
Are you concerned that they’ll sully the integrity of the original film?
Wasn’t “Lexx” the original reboot?
Today I used the present I received in the most recent Deadpan Secret Santa gift exchange (an Amazon gift card) to get myself the Kindle edition of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Thanks, Secret Santa! :happy:
Good night, mush.
Is anyone watching the show, Continum?
Watched the entire series, enjoyed it.
We’ve been watching Continuum too.
The Coyotes tonight are frustrating and C. Johnson is kinda shrimpy.
Seems so weird now:
Come to see the show.
When we gonna rock and roll you.
Pixie/Van, is Continuum the one about the future cop? If so, we saw the first episode and liked it, but I’ve forgotten to pick up subsequent eps.
Yup, she gets transported to the past when the terrorists escape from prison.
I need to get back to that one!

I’m reading a journal article by authors Balz & Hock. That is one letter away from being the best name pairing ever.
I did the recent update for my iPhone yesterday and the battery drain is mucho rapido.
I could have done with more choices:
86% via test
0% via how I usually feel.
Those are the choices they give you as answers to the questions?
Wow! Last time a ran across leading and poorly disguised marketing material material like that was some of the far right, neo conservative “surveys” that was being passed around before the US Presidential election.
I guess “questionable” is something readily available from all sides.
86% per this test.
86%. Which is odd because I consider myself a humanist. It should be 100%. Like most broadly defined groups, there is no real ONE perspective on what humanism is. My focus is obviously a bit different than theirs. I am a bit upset that they seem to have hijacked all of humanism into secular humanism. There are many nonsecular humanists out there as well. Humanists don’t have to be atheists.
That was my problem with it.
Seems like the particular group running that web site has co-opted the general term “Humanism” for their own specific, non-theistic philosophy .
90%, what do I win?
Nothing, a valuable life lesson is learned.

CP: (Un)serum — The Soft Breaking
Stupid iTunes. The search function really sucks since 11.x
I’m heading home with a new iPad.
We thought we’d wait a couple of months for the new one to come out before looking at replacing ours.
I’m pretty meh about my iPad. I’ll check out the Surface Pro next month since that’s more along the lines of what I’d want.
I had a voucher for a few hundred quid off or I would have stuck with the original iPad.
I use the iPad for reading ebooks, watching videos and playing games.
I have no illusions that it is a laptop replacement because in my view it isn’t.
My daughter uses her iPad everyday, mostly to talk with her out of state cousin over facetime. My son barely touches his. The only reason I would like one is to run JamUp Pro on it (Guitar Amp Emulator). Otherwise I’d get more use out of a sub $150 Kindle Fire.
Still use a 2010 HP TouchPad and FUCKING proud of it!
Kicks you in the face.
I still haven’t gotten on the tablet bandwagon. It’s 50% me being a fuddy duddy and 50% not having the disposable cash to get one.
My mom recently got a Kindle Fire (not the HD one) and really, really loves it. She watches tons of TV via her amazon prime account, and reads magazines on it. Looks like a fun gadget! But I still like a good book I can read while I’m in the tub without fear of dropping it/ruining it/hating myself for spending so much money on it and killing it.
Theres no reason to hop on the bandwagon if you havent already. Just my opinion. Only reason I even have a cheap crappy Touchpad is cause my daughter uses it for school.
I have just the Kindle kindle. Like the first one or the ad one … whatevs. I like that no matter the size of the book, I can carry it around in my purse. A friend suggested putting it in a gallon ziplock when I’m in the tub and it worked like a charm. Just thought I’d share. Otherwise, as much as I’d love an actual Android tablet, I don’t have one now and therefore, will continue to not know what I’m missing. That’s the blissful state of never having had one.
Stupid new tires!!!!

Oh… inner Atlanta. I wondered why the media wasnt all over it.
Cj spotted this:
I’m pretty amped to find a way to be there.
:metal: THAT IS SOOOOO COOOL!!!!!!!!
Hmm, 6%. Not surprising considering the wording of the questions.
We are a mixed race gadget family. Android for our phones, Ipods for music. The kids have 1st gen Ipads that I got on clearance when the Ipad 2’s came out. So far, they have served quite well for the limited use they offer – especially gaming.
My wife is on her 3rd Kindle – now the Paperwhite. She loves reading wherever we go and being able go for a few weeks at a time between charges. I’m sure I don’t want to know how many ebooks she has 🙂
I picked up a Nexus 7 tablet last year. I like that my Google account info and apps are synced to both my phone and the tablet. I mostly use the table around the house for browsing and looking up actors on IMDB while we watch things. I really like the size and form factor. Fits much better in the hand than the Ipads. Now, if only Amazon would finally offer a video app for it.
Bunny, this is like watching two mediocre ECHL teams…
My problems with that survey echo some of yours. It was poorly worded, and most of the questions didn’t have my true answer. Especially the last one! What’s important in life… is clearly:
The crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women.
Clearly, you are a Conanist.

Crap joke for the Morning:
Four guys have been going to the same fishing trip for many years. Two days before the group is to leave, Ron’s wife puts her foot down and tells him he isn’t going.Ron’s mates are very upset that he can’t go, but what can they do. Two days later the three mates get to the camping site only to find Ron sitting there with a tent set up, firewood gathered, and dinner cooking on the fire.
“Shit Ron, how long you been here? How did you talk your Mrs. into letting you go?””Well, I’ve been here since last night. After dinner at home yesterday evening, I was sitting in my chair and my wife came up behind me and put her hands over my eyes and said, ‘Guess who?’I pulled her in front of me and she was wearing sexy brand new lingerie. She said she had been reading ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ and she had a devilish look in her eyes!!!She took my hand and led me to our bedroom. The room had candles and rose petals all over.On the bed she had handcuffs, and ropes!She told me to tie her up and cuff her to the bed, so I did.And then she said, ‘Do whatever you want.’
So . . . . here I am!”
Its still before midnight here.
/get your trenchcoat, please
/and the cuffs
I’m still in my morning sweats. I guess I should consider showering and getting dressed but, meh.
I think I’m going to be a rebel today an not clean the bathroom.
On Tuesday I went an got some blood work done. Yesterday my oh so observant hubby finally noticed the bigass bruise on my arm. Now he’s upset, which is funny because I always get giant bruises when I get blood drawn. It’s not like it’s anything new.
Didn’t you get bruised when you did the hapkido?
Yeah, but I haven’t done that for a few years now *insert whine here* Truth is, I bruise very easily.
Ruins and stuff:
Some of those are very beautiful
Well Pan off to the flicks to see this:
It’s been slagged off in a lot of reviews so I’m not expecting greatness…
Which wasn’t that bad.
I know most of you guys don’t follow football, but I do. This really has me upset:
Saw that. But the Kenneth Farid story you posted balances that out a bit at least. Just in the sense that at least not all sports stars are asscocks. Now if we can only tip the balance…
Agree, and the Ravens and 49ers have some excellent guys as well. It’s just the mouthy homophobes that are horrible.
If anyone wonders why gay teens kill themselves, they don’t need to look much further.
Culliver’s comments were ugly, but I’d hoped his insincere forced apology would have enforced some bonehead lessons, and we all could have moved on. Ugh.
I think it would’ve been better if he hadn’t apologized at all.
Today is the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation.

As for the MMMmmmeetup, it’s looking like May 3-5 is the best weekend for most? We can commit to that, if no one objects. . . Speak up, please, if that doesn’t work! I think we’re also getting set on the locale, but we should firm that up too.
(“firm that up”)
It’s starting to look like anything before June would make it unlikely I could attend a meetup in CO due to Teresa’s work travel schedule. There’s still a chance, but less than 50% at the moment.
First weekend in May is fine for me. Now we just need to decide for sure where.
Woo-hoo, Bunny’s up for the First of May!
Seems that a lot of our Phoenix-area regulars won’t be able to travel… I’d also be up for doing a local MMMMdinner at another time, if there’s enough interest.

Your crap joke for a Dull Sunday morning:
A priest and a pastor are standing by the side of the road holding up a sign that reads, ‘The end is near! Turn around now before it’s too late!’ They hold up the sign to cars passing by. “Leave us alone, you religious nuts!” yells the first driver as he speeds by. From around the curve they hear screeching tires and a big splash. “Do you think,” says the priest to the pastor, “we should just put up a sign that says ‘Bridge Out’ instead?

Dave Zirin is my favorite sports writer. Good column on the homophobia-bowl horseshit:
… and while we’re on the topic –
Could someone clue me in on what activities they are participating in now a days in the Bots Scouts, where the scout’s sexual preferance would be of any importance?
Are they now offering a “I slept with a girl” badge? Are Jamborees just none stop, weekend orgies?
Last I heard they were teaching all sorts of things about honor and treating others with respect and maybe even the whole “No sex before marriage” thing. If that’s the case … why in the world would it mater who they wanted to sleep with?
In fact … what activities are they doing that would even let them KNOW if a kid was gay?
