  1. In my defense….

    My budding career has sucked up all of my brain cells, much in the same way as having children suck up the brain cells of their parents.
    :-/

  2. There’s a new Deadpan on my computer. It’s too bad I won’t be able to listen to it foe a couple of hours. Taking Boo’s car in to have the snow tires removed.

  3. Today’s crap joke(s)

    Unit Conversion (Advanced)

    1. Ratio of an igloo’s circumference to its diameter = Eskimo Pi
    2. 2000 pounds of Chinese soup = Won ton
    3. 1 millionth of a mouthwash = 1 microScope
    4. Time between slipping on a peel and smacking the pavement = 1 bananosecond
    5. Weight an evangelist carries with God = 1 billigram

  4. 6. Time it takes to sail 220 yards at 1 nautical mile per hour = Knotfurlong
    7. 16.5 feet in the Twilight Zone = 1 rod serling
    8. Half of a large intestine = 1 semicolon
    9. 1,000,000 aches = 1 megahurtz
    10. Basic unit of laryngitis = 1 hoarsepower

  5. Splurged the $2.12 to get Bioshock Infinite from Redbox this weekend. Got it Saturday afternoon, played until 2am, then again for another 5 hours or so on Sunday morning. I’m one of those frustrating really slow, explore every corner type players so I’m still only a little past actually finding the girl. I will definitely get this again next time I have a free weekend (in a few months or so).

    • I just started it last night. I tend to play the same way, but I haven’t found the girl yet.

      I’m still finishing my second play through of Persona 4: The Golden. Awesome game. According to the time counter, I’ve sunk about 130 hours into it. It’s probably a few hours more than that.

      • I was reading stuff online from serious gamers listing things that happened after finding the girl as “about 2 hours into the game”. It must have been more like 12 for me to get to that point. IMHO I’m getting more bang for my buck by stretching out the game.

    • I wont feel bad for her but I kinda feel bad for her. And youre right – when I first started reading this there was a twinge of SHE SAID WHAT!?!?! even tho I knew it was satire.

  7. Oh. Before I forget (again). Talks are being talked at work and funding is coming through for more and more projects that need to be done with airports. And because Phoenix ran so well and was so willing to work with us, we are hoping to be able to go back there again… and again… and again. Nothing specific yet, but looks like it will be a popular travel spot for me. Now I just need to convince them to try the airports in CO so I can meet some of the other deadpan people.

  8. CD: at work, on lunch break, eating leftover Thai and on the phone with UPS, as they open a “formal investigation…”

    Oooooohhhh o_O

  9. When I type “Goodnight” on the Kindle, its follow suggestions are “Margaret”, “Lebowski”, and “shard.”
    Ponder that to start your morning.

    Goodnight :Lebowski and shard and Margaret:

    • I think I shall challenge the Bunny to a “7 degrees of B movies” quest.

      For this quest she must watch this movie, then go to it’s imdb page and … selecting one of the lead actor/actres whom she didn’t recognize and hadn’t heard of … go to their imdb page.

      Once on THAT page, she must select a film they have appeared in but which she has also never heard of, and view that film.

      Then … she must repeat that process another 5 times, tunneling her way through B-movies and their casts until, arriving at that 7th film … she will see if there is a connection back to this first film … or if she has become so sick of “no budget” productions, she can no longer watch B-movie films.

      • While this sounds interesting J0e, not as easy as you might think. Our cable subscription includes HBO and a few movie channels. Pretty much all the shows I do are recorded from those channels. I could do the NetFlix route but CDN availability is close to half what is available in he US.

        And finally, That seems like a lot of work for something I do casually and I’m too lazy to rise to that kind of challenge :wink:

  10. Today’s movie is Space Milkshake.

    The DVR write up: four astronauts are the last line of defence against a mutating rubber duck that wants to take over the universe

  11. So, looking at the cast listing on IMDB for Bunny’s movie today, I must wonder – did someone have incriminating photos on everyone to pull that talent together?

  12. Hubby is getting the snow tires swapped out on his car so I gave him mine to drive today. Hubby really has issues driving my car so, hopefully, it will be ok. For some reason, he can never put it in the proper gear. I could see that if my car was a standard, in which case he wouldn’t drive it at all, but it’s an automatic.

    *shakes head* I just don’t understand.

  13. I’ll be happy tomorrow on my way to Disneyland with Ralph and the kidlets! Today I have grumpies because I have tired and customers with Apple products.

  14. I am eligible for an upgrade cell phone wise. Do you guys have any phone recommendations? I have an iPhone 4 and like it quite a bit except for the 3G slowness. I’m not thrilled to shell out $200 for an iPhone 5, but I’m not sure that there’s a better option for me.

      • Teresa recently got an iPhone 5 from her office and purchased a Samsung Galaxy 3 for personal use. If you liked you iPhone 4, then I would go for the iPhone 5.

        I like the open platform and better Windows integration I get from the Samsungs, but I seem to have to take the battery out once a week to recover from the phone crashing. =P

  15. I think there’s a conspiracy going on. Several years ago, about a half dozen of us washed elephants with George R.R. Martin (not a euphemism). Now that GRRM is the new hotness, my Boo asked me for copies of the pictures. It always helps the namedropping if you have proof to back it up. Anyway, I looked everywhere and I cannot find the pictures. I then contacted the others who were with us and they can’t find their pictures either. What’s up with that?

  16. I went to Costco and only spent $40.00 if you don’t count the gas fill-up. If you do, then I’m still just under $100.00 so not bad for a Costco trip.

  17. It’s been nice and my neurotic cat has been bugging me to go outside. Today I opened the back door and sat on the back step. The cat went into the living room. I picked her up and took her outside. She promptly jumped off my lap and went back in the house. I just don’t understand

  18. I have a question for people with a good deal of comics knowledge. I’m looking to start talking online about my area of expertise, psychoacoustics (relationship between sound and the perception of sound) and want to create a character to go along with it called Psycho Acoustic (a psychotic criminal that works with sound). I’ve tried looking around to see if this has been done before, but my inability to find it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. The name was so obvious to me that I have a hard time believing it hasn’t already been done. Anyone see a character like this before?

  19. CD: Mission – Shipwrecked Double IPA

    Im not really hip on San Diego breweries, but this is a DAMN delish brew. Sweeter than most

  20. Made an effort to try and clear some of the backlog on the DVR of new series I’ve recorded but not watched. So far:

    Defiance – pushed myself to hang on for 30 minutes before I just couldn’t take anymore. It came across as completely derivative and unoriginal.

    Orphan Black – Caught the pilot. The premise is intriguing enough, but the lead actress doesn’t yet seem strong enough to carry the multiple parts that will be required. Still, I think we’re going to check on the second episode on this one.

  21. Well, while last week’s episode, particularly the ending, was among the most satisfying episodes of Game of Thrones, tonight’s was quite possibly the most impactful with Jaime’s confession to Brienne. I had been looking forward to seeing that scene as much as seeing Daenerys conclusion at Astapor.

  22. Morning Pan

    Survived Comic Expo. It was fun, except now my legs are sore from standing on a concrete floor for several hours a day.

    Now it’s time to do laundry and get ready to travel to Deadpan Land on Thursday. While comic expo was fun (minus a few hiccups hubby for poor hubby), all things considered, I know I’m going to enjoy Arizona much more.

  23. My house is situated sideways on our lot so instead of a back and a front door we have a left side and a right side door. I don’t know what’s going on lately but twice in the last couple of weeks, (including just now), we’ve had some work done at the house and the worker came to the door and asked which side was our. We’ve been here 17 years and nobody has mistaken our place for a duplex so why now?

  24. So we have no plan for this year’s NHL playoffs. I was gonna just leave it, but I have an idea with some potential, and with low pressure/commitment.

    Pick a team you expect to get eliminated. Others will do the same. Whoever’s team lasts the longest in the playoffs must record an Unshow sometime before Deadpan is done.
    We’d have to pick teams by Thursday if we wanted to play this way this year. The games begin Wednesday.

  25. Hi Deadpanites!
    It’s been a while since I’ve posted here. I’m looking forward to seeing many of you at the Meet Up in a few days!
    As you may know, Ditto and I volunteer with the American Cancer Society and participate in the Relay for Life. Ditto will soon be asking for donations from you and I just HAVE to come in early and steal his thunder. (And his donations.)
    So please consider giving a donation to the Relay for Life here on my webpage: http://main.acsevents.org/goto/traceybormanncattarin2013 ESPECIALLY if you were going to give a donation to Ditto.
    Thank you!

    P.S. Yes, I am evil and Ditto likes it.

  26. Crap joke for the day:

    I found my Auntie dead in her bed this morning, I was gutted, I put my arms around her and held her as a tear rolled down my cheek I noticed that she was naked. I ended up fucking her, just as I was about to cum she shouted BOO! I mean what sort of sick Bastard pretends to be dead?!

  27. I would like to stake claim to those damn dirty apes of Los Angeles

    My Unshow theme could be something like:

    Rise of the LA Reed Raider Nation Queens
