Way down deep in the middle of the Congo,
A hippo took an apricot, a guava and a mango.
He stuck it with the others, and he danced a dainty tango.
The rhino said, “I know, we’ll call it Um Bongo”
Um Bongo, Um Bongo, They drink it in the Congo.
The python picked the passion fruit, the marmoset the mandarin.
The parrot painted packets, that the whole caboodle landed in.
So when it comes to sun and fun and goodness in the jungle,
They all prefer the sunny funny one they call Um Bongo!
I predict a silent unshow next week.
You’re more than welcome to record and send or call that in 😉
RIP Andy Johns. Thanks for all of the great music.
I suggest that Van read the comments for the next episode!!
Shall I light the scented candles first?
Threesomes can be exhausting, or so I’ve been told.
It’s a beautiful sunny day today. All the snow we got over the weekend has melted.

My back is itchy. Just thought you’d like to know.
My cat snores. Not really loud but still…
Just thought you’d like to know.
Getting dragged to see ‘The Host’ with sister tonight, the reviews don’t make it sound promising.
Every ad I’ve seen for The Host call out that it’s by Stephanie Meyers and shows a girl standing in the foreground and two guys standing in the background. All I can think is “from the author that brought you a teenage chick torn between two guys in a supernatural environment, comes the new movie… a teenage chick torn between two guys in a supernatural environment.”
Well scifi rather supernatural, a bit soppy,but miles better than the bloody twilight movies.
CP: Pear Tree — We Were Promised Jetpacks
Some weeks, it doesn’t pay to get out of bed.
Agreed. Or years.
EssBee, Sly B & the Pan of the Lo Fam –hunker down, keep warm & be safe in Denver today.
And, yes, hunker down & keep each other warm
Me: “Awesome! I bet I get a bad weather off of work day today!”
Work cant spell too well
Do travel with caution in the ugly weather, Coloradans.
Everything here was covered in a layer of dust after last night’s storms, and it was unusually cold.
I’m just gonna go ahead and shave that mohawk, so I can get an early start on roaming the post-apocalyptic highways with other savages, looking to commandeer gas, food, and vehicles.
Watch out for flying metal boomerangs
Forecasters call for a 30% chance of Thunderdome, with some occasional Tina Turner.
We dont need another gyro.
Me order! Me Master! Me run Bartertown!
God I loathe that film.
A much better film in concept than execution.
Thank you, Dethklok?
look for their next single titled, “I lactate icicles.”
I laughed a little to myself today when I discovered that North Korea has a missile called the “Nodong”.
I just laughed a lot!
You know what? I think it’s reading time
CR: Hellhole Awakening – Keven J, Anderson & Brian Herbert
Please please please watch this 2 minutes of crazy Jeremy Irons being interviewed…
Is it him or his twin?
They showed this on Colbert last week. Colbert was saying how you can say anything you want as long as you say you don’t have an opinion after.
It’s a Deadpan Favorite’s birthday today.
Happy 23rd Birthday, K. Stew! May your day be filled with smiles and sparkly vampires.
Oh baby baby!
I realize I never answered WNDRWolf’s question to me in the comments to the previous episode.
WNDRWolf, if you’re out there: Yes, that is my voice at the end of this episode. That song debuted in Deadpan #213 (link to the episode). It was a collaboration between me, Rhettro, and JackM. There’s also an explanation in that episode of how it came to be. I was very pleasantly surprised to hear it again in this episode. 🙂
…At the end of episode #272, I meant. Not episode #273. (Holy crow, I’ve been contributing content like crazy lately. :blush: )
You’ve contributed at a reasonable rate, Amy, no :blush: necessary. I’ve just gotten behind on all content, what with Unshows and Paloozas. I’d been planning this episode’s Pulp Fiction/Holy Grail mashups for a lonnnnnng time, I’d just never bothered to mix it together until last night.
Thanks, Jack! I was just reacting to the number of times my name appeared in the show notes for this episode. I do realize that most of those contributions waited until now because of the Palooza. 🙂
Speaking of which: UsedHair and Vanamonde, I really enjoyed listening to your conversation about Blade Runner in the last episode. I appreciated the insights you had to share. 🙂
Yes Amy I knew it was you. I remembered when it first aired. I will be contacting you via email later in the week.
All set for a good night. No drama. No misinfo, no disinfo.
Christ man! Dont jinx it!
Excellent episode, Pannites!
Great fun from EssBee and Ambassador Amy.
Loved the Pulp/Grail mashup too.
Thanks! I agree, the Pulp/Grail mashup rocked. :happy:
Amy should contribute content on my behalf.
I’m tempted to call and read an enjoyed chapter of The Great Gatsby. I liked that book.
Hi, Cj! :happy: Yes, a Stolen Paragraph would be great.
Since I’m getting behind in my political commentary …
Margaret Thatcher … well, in a back-handed sort of way, she is largely responsible for the formation of a large part of the Punk Rock scene. More accurately, a large part of punk rock was a response to her and her policies. So … I’ll raise a pint to her. Out of tyranny rose wonderful/awful musical anarchy! Oiy!
I remember when the tories won in 1979, I was in a technical drawing class at school, and the teacher was lamenting on Labour losing.
She was hated by a lot of people (including me at the time), but now she’s dead and I really don’t care any more, my current ire is fuelled by her successors.
North Korean Leader & Karaoke star, “Fatboy Kim” …
Good grief man! Your people don’t have the internet or even get basic cable, just TELL them you have already conquered the rest of the world. They’ll never know the difference! You’ll be a national hero and you won’t have to keep giving the HAWKS in this country the excuse the have been waiting for to craterize your country once and for all!
I need you to stop being rational. Great leader thanks you.
Okay. Crawling back through the worm hole now.
I’m so busy lately, I haven’t had any time to make Blade-Runner comment, and now the Palooza is O’er.
Well, I guess whatever doesn’t kill you takes the moral high-ground before it dies.
Never too late!
Never say never again!
Have a carton of Um Bongo.
Have a CD of Oingo Boingo
I have a song by the “Bonzo Dog Do Da Band”.
I was thinking of listening to my CD of Sonny Bono playing Oingo Boingo on the Bongo while consuming a case of Um Bongo.
(You guys complete me.)
I am the Urban Spaceman
Crap joke for today:
A guy went to a psychiatrist because he was having severe problems with his sex life.
The psychiatrist asked him a lot of questions, but didn’t seem to be getting a clear picture of the problems.Finally, he asked, “Do you ever watch your girlfriend’s face while you’re having sex?””Well, yes, I did once.”
“Well, how did she look?”
“Oh boy, she looked VERY angry!”
At this point the psychiatrist felt that he was really getting somewhere and he said, “Well that’s very interesting, we must look into this further.
Now tell me, you say that you have only seen your girlfriend’s face once during sex; that seems somewhat unusual. How did it occur that you saw her face that time?”
“She was watching us through the window.”
4 out of 5 coats!
Right Pan, off to see Oblivion, the new Tom Cruise film (at least for us on this side of the pond).
Which wasn’t too bad if all rather predictable.
Yes the aliens want our water, and happily sail past the Oort Cloud with all those comets made from ice..
Thanks for the shout outs yesterday, everyone! I was able to stay home and avoid icy roads. I’m off to the office this morning, though. 11F out there!
More freezing fog today. With luck, it won’t kill the power like it did on Sunday.
So then there is this –
“Fox shuts down anyone selling a Jayne hat”
Saw this. Threw up a little.
A wonderful example of not understanding their potential customer base. They clearly don’t understand that it is a show about “little guys” operating under the legal radar and proudly finding opportunities to “stick it to the big bad corporate alliance”.
I suspect Firefly fans who had no previous interest in owning a Jayne hat, will now seek out a way to buy a “black market” one.
O h I can near guarantee the stock in those hats has just skyrocketed. *I* now want one, not cause I’m a giant Firefly fan, but so I can spite Fox.
Been to the dentist.
Defeat admitted, a visit to the dental hospital in the future.
Dental Health will drive you mad.
Seriously, that’s awful news, Van.
Never a good time 🙁
Van, here it is. I highly recommend this. It’s our kinda show!
I wanna watch!
It is SO GOOD. We subscribed on iTunes. There are 2 episodes left. You come watch at my house! Or I borrow it to you!
All of the above!
Grabbing the first episode as I type.
‘I borrow it to you’
Essbee becomes Yoda, the circle is complete.
Nerd, are you. And love you, do I
I am still LOLing about Van’s threesome mention yesterday.
I’ll bring the Baily’s…
Just no ice.
You can get Angry Birds Star Wars for free:
It’s a really quiet day here in bunny land.
CP: My Heart — The Ettes
I’m making chocolate chip cookies. You can never go wrong with the basics
CP: SOmething Going on – Kirsty McGee
Don’t know if her new COntraband Album is available on Spotify in North America, but she’s well worth checking out in my view.
my . . .
kind of cool
Amy – just CP: the episode. Love your earbuddies segments!
Thank you! :happy:
BTW, EssBee: I’m so glad you liked my choice of music for this round of Earbuddies! :happy:
Also, I am officially ready for another Earbuddies partner. (And I promise to pick a song from a different collection of music this time. I realized that I did tell the same story behind my music choice twice, once when I was paired off with EssBee and once for a previous Earbuddies exchange, with Jack. I do have other music that I’d like to share, too.)
I dropped my iPad on my ankle bone. That kind of hurts
There’s an app for that?
Just bought the soundtrack to Oblivion. It’s done by M83. I like it. A lot.
Hmmm I will take a listen
Pulp Grail = brilliance
“Dead kunnnnnigget storage”. HA!
I, for one, am really looking forward to seeing Oblivion in the theater. Say on a date night.
Only if there are scenes of Tom Cruise singing.
I can confirm he doesn’t.
Looks like it opens next weekend.
There. Cookies in the cookie jar and a roast is in the oven. I think I’m done my wifey duties for today :happy:
Deadpan is acting strange today. Twice when I posted it told me this page has timed out. I’ve had to refresh the page before it would accept my post. Whyfor? It’s never done that before.
*mutter, mutter* stupid wordpress
Yup, been happening to me as well.
In fact it just happened when I tried to send this message.
CD: waiting patiently in line for a carwash at my local Costco.
The line is like 30 cars deep x 2. WTF
Victims of the dirty haboob?
They all waited until you were there. They want to hang out with the cool kids.
My brain is being taxed trying not to mix up Oblivion with Defiance. I’m looking forward to both. Also, Jamie Murray swoon!
Pacific Rim looks like it could be good as well.
CE: the continous conveyour belt Costco Carwash experience.
Wow, facebook is strange. I was friended today by an old high school friend of hubby. We haven’t spoken to them in close to 15 years.
I’ve had folk that I have run into for nearly 30 years (holy crap I’m old). FaceBook has brought a lot of demons back into my life.
On the plus side…
…give me a moment on that one.
Ummm wow, how simple amd easy.
For those of you with Wee People — this recipe is sure to please.
That’s my idea of baking!
I will not show this to my hubby.
So, it looks like exporting my iTunes library into Winamp blew away my play count info. It doesn’t look like any songs or any other data was lost (fingers crossed), just my play counts. Hmph.
I do know that Adele – Rolling in the Deep was the top played before the data loss, so maybe that’s a good thing. (I kid. It’s a brilliant song).
Wow, yes, WP (or GD?) is flaky as fuck today. I’ll investigate further. Another time.
I wish to report that TMBG’s new cd “Nanobots” has some swell toons on it.
Specifically, “Your on fire” makes me happy. It rocks.
There is also a track called “Replicant” which I believe IS an ode to Bladerunner.
Now …. on with my day.
Lots to do today.
It’s raining. How strange.
PledgeMusic is fucking brilliant and wallet draining.
In case you thought I was making it up:
And here I was told Britain didnt have interesting foodstuffs…
If those are allowed on the plane. . .
Holy crap it’s pouring buckets out there.
I have to go out and do things. There’s going to be a wet bunny in the near future.
And there was much rejoicing.
It’s now changed to really heavy wet snow.
I have to go out now. Prepare for a bedraggled bunny.
I hope the cotton tail doesn’t shrink when drying.
Be careful out there!
ok, now I’m really leaving.
“Big Damn Hero”, I say!
Browsing some freebie comics from the 1960’s (via the Marvel Unlimited app).
I can only conclude they had better eyesight in the 60s.
Did you subscribe? Or do you get free shit with the app?
Nope (tempted but no), and yes you can grab some single issues for free.
Now this, yes this:
Hubby and I were talking about this. It was based on an old mid 70’s article on future cities in space. John remembered that article and the pictures of what the cities looked like.
Didn’t the Original Star Trek cover this in an episode? The elite living in the clouds and the grunts on the earth below?
Firefly even did something like this.
Jack Mangan’s delightful short story, “Bodies in the Water”, the lead story in a 2006 edition of “Tales of the Talisman” magazine, also covered a similar theme.
And also a heartbreaker, dream maker and love taker.
Dont you mess around. NO NO NO!
*Theme from The Legend of Billie Jean.*
I’m all wet
So not going there.
Bought tickets to the Yotes/Sharks game on Monday. Fingers are crossed for a win.
The NameDropper and I will be at the game, as well.
The little ethernet switcher box arrived today.
That’s how exciting my life is.
Hypnotised by flickering green lights…
Nice. I had an exciting time with my son’s computer a few days ago. Somehow the Soundblaster drivers I installed for his new sound card caused the card to not be seen by Windows. I tried uninstalling the drivers to no avail. However, rolling back Windows config files to a time prior to the install fixed everything.
Ah, it’s so fun when my son decides to share with me….whatever crud he’s brought home from school.
Feel better, Edder.
Ed you better get better. Only a couple of weeks until we see each other and I have enough exposure to crud through a husband who works at a germ factory, I don’t want to have contact with USA crud too. :sick:
I am seeing some weirdness posting to Facebook in Chrome. Anyone else?
I’m not a Chrome user, Jack. I’m strictly Safari at home.
I use Chrome. All looks well to me
Been having problems with Chrome display images on the Gizmodo uk website.
I just want you to know I’m really getting tired of snow and will be very happy when spring decides to show it’s head.
No lickey boom boom down?
Detective mon a says a did a me Snow me stab somewhere down the lane.
(A lickey boom boom down)
Oh. Hey I actually know that song!
Only a couple more weeks until a Deadpan Spring hits ya like a blast of hell
That reminds me, I need to bring a hat.
And a coat.
The coat may cement my reputation as more nutty than a topic bar.
I’m going to clean the washroom then shred a bunch of paper (not related).
Oh my life is so exciting.
Your crap joke for the day:
Two medical students were walking along the street when they saw an old man walking with his legs spread apart. He was stiff-legged and walking slowly. One student said to his friend: “I’m sure that poor old man has Peltry Syndrome. Those people walk just like that.”
The other student says: “No, I don’t think so. The old man surely has Zovitzki Syndrome. He walks slowly and his legs are apart, just as we learned in class.”
Since they couldn’t agree they decided to ask the old man. They approached him and one of the students said to him, “We’re medical students and couldn’t help but notice the way you walk, but we couldn’t agree on the syndrome you might have. Could you tell us what it is?”
The old man said, “I’ll tell you, but first you tell me what you two fine medical students think.”
The first student said, “I think it’s Peltry Syndrome.”
The old man said, “You thought – but you are wrong.”
The other student said, “I think you have Zovitzki Syndrome.”
The old man said, “You thought – but you are wrong.” So they asked him, “Well, old timer, what do you have?”
The old man said, “I thought it was gas – but I was wrong, too!”
4 out of 5 messy coats!
Sometime after the stores open I have to sneak out and get some alcohol. We’re having company over for some gaming on the weekend and I have to keep them on the far side of sober so I have a chance to win.
Not the recommended way to play mumbly peg.
Bleh. Cough. Sneeze.
Fans of shoegaze might want to check out this song.
CP: Salvation — Cobalt Cranes
You know what I’d like? For once I’d like to tell someone I work with, “hey! Let’s do such and such on the computer” and have them actually know what I’m talking about. Arranging this Google Hangout for tomorrow is starting to become a pain.
It’s times like these that you wish “Force Choke” was a real power, eh? 😉
yes. Or at least force shake.
How about a Forced Harlem Shake ?
Be careful out there.
You know I had to censor so many thoughts just reading the headline.
On a side note, I have eaten the furry rodent with the flat tale. They aren’t bad, if a little stringy (I was very careful on my wording for a reason. Damn gutterminds, including my own)
tale = tail *sigh*
This sounds like the premise for one of TEB’s pbp movies.
You Can Play is a great org.
Off to get some alcohol and my new glasses *sigh* I hate getting older
I think Blackie Lawless had the same issue once in Texas.
Yes, too obscure. Even Wikipedia didn’t help on this one.
Youre such a Wild Child
I wish I caught the reference, then I could be somebody too.
I am now a glasses wearing girl. I guess I need to practice my sexy librarian voice.
Are they cat-eye glasses?
No but they have little fake gemstones on the ear pieces
CP: Wolf’s Law — The Joy Formidable
Have you seen any of these criminals?
Wasn’t one of them Cobra Commander?
CL: Styx. Trying to decide if I like Grand Illusion or Paradise Theater better. Quite the tough decision. I think Paradise Theater wins by a slight margin.
I was fond of my “Kilroy Was Here” Columbia House cassette, back in 198?.
Yeah, in retrospect, that album was no so good.
Saw the “Mr. Roboto” tour in 1983 and it was a great show. Of course now I feel old.
Then it occurred to me that my son is the same age I was when I saw this show. #damnimold
I had Paradise Theater on vinyl and Grand Illusion on cassette. They were quite important to me when I was a teen and I played the hell out of both of them. That said, I absolutely could not stand or understand Kilroy Was Here and Mr. Roboto. No idea why I should have such drastically different reactions with the same band. But, you know… these things happen.
I saw this show as well.
However, I am not your son at the age you were when I saw it.
Medium is kind of an interesting quick-fix-article site.
I’m going to be making Jell-o shots for a friend’s birthday party.
Anyone interested in me doing the same for any Deadpan event?
You know, I hope the next meetup isn’t going to be a bunch of old farts growsing about how old we all are, though I suspect that would probably be better than us all showing up with mullets and driving 80’s camaros trying to pretend we’re not old.
/I blame the drugs…
I request two thingsfrom everyone at the MMMmmmeetup:
1. Ladies, bring tour best Derby Day hat
2. We *are* going to pay homage to Buckaroo Bonzai and do the walk in a square box in the revene, wearing the coolest 80’s fashion ever!
We’ll just need walkers and motorized rascal scooters and sock garters.
Since we’re all so old now.
“We’ll just need walkers…”
No, I meant:
I’m in for both of Pixie’s suggestions. 🙂
I was as cool in the 80’s as I am now.
I’ll just go and put on my corduroy trousers and shirt..
How about a nice mumble to start your weekend:
I wound up watching a Koren Kid singing Karaoke. Several different songs 🙂
Jonathan Winters passed away 🙁
I must go watch the full version of The Thief and the Cobbler. Pretty sure they never gave him a script for this movie. Just let him watch and improv as he went.
My friend and I killed Jonathan Winters. You’d think by now we’d have learned our lessons.
We were talking about how no one that’s set foot on the moon had died. Neil Armstrong died the next day.
We were talking about how Jack Klugman was in a couple old Twilight Zone Episodes (I’d been rewatching them). Next day, Jack Klugman died.
We were talking about how odd it still is with Ebert and no Siskel, but were enjoying Ebert. Ebert died the next day.
We were talking this morning about “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World” and all the stars like the Three Stooges and Johnathon Winters. Then we talked about Mork and Mindy. And more Johnathan Winters. Today, he died.
I need to stop talking with my friend about celebrities. They keep dying when we do.
Jesus Crispy Christ, sir.
I’m afraid you ate two thousand years too late on that one.
Or maybe you just need to be more selective about which celebrities you talk about. Plan a long weekend with your friend and have a great big long talk about the Kardashians, Justin Bieber, Snooki and Lindsey Lohan.
Right on, UsedHair. Say, JR, your friends would love to get your thoughts on Adam Sandler.
Rhettro loves Britny Fox.
/made up randomness
I was expecting Britny Fox be another walking ad for skin cancer..and then I googled it.
I’d worry about “Girlschool” getting stuck in my head, but I can’t even begin to remember it.
Samantha Fox maybe.
Your crap joke for wee hours of Saturday morning:
A man and a woman who had never met before, but who were both married to other people, found themselves assigned to the same sleeping room on a trans-continental train.
Though initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a room, they were both very tired and fell asleep quickly, he in the upper berth and she in the lower.
At 1:00 AM, the man leaned down and gently woke the woman saying “Ma’am, I’m sorry to bother you, but would you be willing to reach into the closet to get me a second blanket – I’m awfully cold.”
“I have a better idea,” she replied “Just for tonight, let’s pretend that we’re married.”
“Wow!…That’s a great idea!”, he exclaimed.
“Good,” she replied…. “Get your own fucking blanket.”
Truthful jokes are true.
Have you seen the movie, “In The House?”
Nope, missed that one at the arty cinema.
Had we but worlds enough and time.
I need a clone for sites like these, multiple clones, then someway to merge memories..
Saw ‘The Place Beyond the Pines ‘last night.
Have to agree with one review that it took a long time to basically say history repeats itself.
Watched John Dies at the End the other night. Refreshing to see a movie that wasn’t a remake, parody or formula fill. Well done.
Yes, John and I quite liked that movie too.
Here’s your Blade Runner Palooza update:
Since I discovered, thanks to the palooza, that I did not in fact have “The Final Cut” as I thought, I followed up on the contact info to request a correct copy. About a week later, I get a package in the mail with a shiny new disc. No muss, no fuss.
Popped it in last night and watched about half of it. Wow! they definitely put some work into the restoration. While it doesn’t quite meet what you could get from a completely modern production, it is by far a much much better picture and sound than anything I’ve seen from something filmed in the 80’s.
Well it’s an interesting take on recruitment:
I am a Kobe/date rale hater.
Most of my friends who are Laker fans will be silent starting today.
Ahhhhh, the sound of peace. I do wish him a full recovery, albeit a slow one.
This is so true
Seems to be a problem for a lot of places in the Northern hemisphere.
Is it okay if my favorite Derby hat is a baseball cap?
If anyone is free at 7:30 MST tonight and wants to see Sly B’s Mariachi group perform, email me and I’ll email you the link to the webcast site.
We were out doing kid birthday stuff and missed it. I do hope she broke a leg.
Happy kid birthday!!!! Him or her?
Also – did anyone record it? Is this Youtubeable?
It was him.
Looks like that’s a “no interest” on the jello shots.
I have no idea what a derby hat is, but I’ll figure it out?
I don’t think I’ll be around at that time, we’re going out, but can you send it to me just in case, EssBee?
I’ve never done shots. Even when I could drink
I just learned (from a picture somebody shared on Facebook) that I live far enough north (just barely) to see auroras. There’s supposed to be one tonight. I think that’s pretty cool. I will take a look when I’m outside again. 🙂
Oops. Previous comment was supposed to be stand-alone, not a reply. My mistake.
THIS comment is a reply to Cj’s post:
Pixie is referring to the tradition of wearing elaborate, fancy hats for the Kentucky Derby, which is always on the first Saturday in May, which coincides with the MMMMMeetup. (link)
I don’t have an elaborate, fancy hat. I shall have to look for one before the MMMMMeetup. :silly:
I’d have been in on those … if I was going to be in on the mmmmmmeetup.
I always thought this was a derby. I will definitely need one of these as I make my transitition into a grumpy old man.
Oh, yeah. That is a derby, too, but Pixie specifically said that the ladies should bring them, so I knew she meant Kentucky Derby hats. 🙂
I thought this was a derby.
On second thought, I think you’re right. My mistake. :blush:
How can you NOT love a heavy metal band that performs behind a moat?!
The only thing that would make this more awesome would be if there were alligators in the moat.
I actually hadnt heard about his condition. 🙁

Essbee, I see the new Nurse Jackie is being torrented on that site I mentioned.
YES!! Cannot wait to see it!
Sorry, CJ! Just saw this note. We will be youtubing.
Just logged my 300th beer bottle. Shipyard Smashed Blueberry. A hybrid between a porter and a scottish ale with a the blueberry flavor quite subtle. Nicely done Shipyard.
Another winning Game of Thrones tonight. Next week look to promise to drop the hammer as well.

On watching the funeral bit, my first thought on seeing the fumbling archer was ‘ ooh he was in the latest Doctor Who’
No spoilers please
My civil requirement is stamped & in the mail.
I just signed the last of my tax paperwork to get my taxes filed today. I am never putting it off this long again. 😛
Ah the advantage of PAYE, no nasty surprises at the end of the year.
Hopefully I haven’t just jinxed myself..
Rereading Interview With the Vampire (It’s been 20+ years.)
I’m surprised at just how good this still is.
The biggest difference between this time and the first time is the images of Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, and Kirsten Dunst as the leads, even though I haven’t seen that film since it was first released in the theater.
Goodnight :Anne Rice’s hair:
Raspberry Pi flying high again:
“Mad Men” has a history of starting it’s new seasons kind of “meh and leaving you wondering if you’ll keep watching it. This season has not broken that trend.
“Orphan Black” on the other hand has really gotten me sucked in!
Orphan Black almost lost me when they played the ‘clones have the same fingerprints’ card.
Unless a Star Trek like duplicator is going to be dragged out in later episodes.
I will say, the initial reaction from “science Sarah” was that they would be “close”. After that she changed her story but I was given the definite impression that this was purely to scare tactic to get “punk rock Sarah” into playing along with them.
I was more thrown into disbelief by the “We can find the motorcycle based on it’s tire tracks.”
No. No you couldn’t.
I am now caught up on Deadpan. Good job on the palooza. I think most everything was covered very well.
I was successful in replacing the power supply and video card on my son’s computer and also getting his new sound card to output to the optical jack. Should be maintenance free for a while, I hope.
ditto: Thanks! :happy:

Well said, J0e. It’s sad how the crazy micro-minority drag the rest down with them.
Guh. Im seriously about to throw up my hands and say “ok fucktards, you win.”
This smells domestic. Not that it matters. Its done.
Does April 15th represent any famous Asshole’s birthday or death?
Memories of 4-19-95 come flooding back.
Taxes. I might agree with Lo. It could be another McVeigh.
Kim-Jong-Somethingorother, ancestor of Un, was born today, which had led to some speculation that they were going to do something shitty.
I wonder if we’ll ever learn the sick motivation behind this.
Watching WCSH. They say the majority of injuries were to the legs/feet due to the low nature of where the packages were placed. Speculation that its no coincidence.
Then you have the Un factor.
Then you have the tax day factor.
Like to know wtf the JFK library fire means as well.
On a less serious note, I’m now tempted by a pebble watch:
Also less serious:
I could really, really go for a spin on Space Mountain right about now. Well OK, not now, but maybe someday after it’s fixed, and after the millions in Deadpan royalties roll in and I can afford admission to Disneyland.
Since 2006??? No Bueno, Disney.
Those are three of my absolute favorite rides. This article puts the *thrill* in thrill ride for me.
Jesus…my family and I just went on those a couple summers ago. Matterhorn I can understand… but jeebus, Soarin is just a sprightly pup in comparison.
We’ll be at Disneyland in 2 weeks. Space Mountain being closed would be stinky, but I don’t care about the Matterhorn.
Now, if they closed the teacups, I’d probably picket or something.
Start banging those drums:
we need to turn this into a deadpan ad methinks 🙂
Okay. Iron Man movies 1 and 2 have been completed. (I was lucky enough to find #2 at the same Redbox machine where I was returning #1.) They both rocked. Still need to get my hands on Hulk and Captain America before the MMMMMeetup. I may rewatch Thor and The Avengers if I have time.
Good night, :Marvel:
Really, Monday? Really??
