  2. I (dig) dug this episode. Man, TD0013 killed. I swear when he keeps repeating “All work and no play…” it sounds like he is rocking in his seat getting closer and farther away from the mic.


    • Thanks, Tony and Lo.

      The “over. . . acting. . . so. . . freaked out”, “Oh crap. I think I just turned blue!”, and “I think. . . I might be lost” lines were delivered masterfully. All three of those are among my favorite recorded Deadpan moments ever.

      • So, now that we’ve had a “best of” episode is the next step the clip show? I would be so down for that. In a freak “full contact chess” game, Jack comes down with amnesia and the Deadpan crew has to try to get his memory back by strolling down memory lane… hilarity ensues.

  3. OK, so I’ll post this on the mainpage, but here’s the NHL Playoff outlook for this year:

    Minnesota Wild (JR Murdock)
    Anaheim Ducks (Cj)
    Vancouver Canucks (The Energizer Bunny)
    San Jose Sharks (EssBee)
    LA Kings (Rhettro)
    St Louis Blues (Lo Pan)

    NY Islanders (Jack Mangan)
    Montreal Canadiens (DJ Bunny)
    Washington Capitals (Vanamonde)
    Toronto Maple Leafs (ditto)
    Boston Bruins (Pixie)

    Remember, if your team is the last one remaining in the NHL Playoffs, then you must record a Deadpan Unshow before the podcast retires. I’ll be available to help in any way you need. Happy eliminating!

    Unclaimed: NY Rangers, Pittsburgh Penguins, Detroit Red Wings, Ottawa Senators, Chicago Blackhawks. I suppose you can claim one of these tomorrow if you want, but beyond that, it’s really too late.

  4. Well I’ve checked in for tomorrow, and boarding passes downloaded to my phone.

    So a long day travelling ahead in the morn.

  5. I’m definitely ready for a traveling weekend. Seems strange that the last Mmmeetup is now a year behind us.

  6. Clothes – check
    Medication – check
    Passport – check
    Check in/boarding pass – check

    Right Pan I’m off to the airport.

    Coat – check..

  7. So got to London, lost contact with the DP website (database error) and went the wrong way ( which meant going through security twice).

  8. To: Today’s Round of Travellers,

    Be Safe and may you sleep on the over-crowded hot aeroplane.

    See you later tonight.

  9. On the flight to Phoenix, waiting for the plane to take off, communication blackout till I reach Sky Harbor and get through security.

    Later Pan, looking forward to seeing you all again.

    It’s hot on this plane , getting me ready for the Phoenix heat.

  10. Hey Panites

    At the airport. Will be going through security in about half an hour. Then another hour wait until I board. I think I spend more time in the airport than on the actual plane

  11. I had two of mu pens die on me as I filled out the customs sheet. What’s that about?
    I may have to steal one from the hotel since I had to toss both of mine

  12. Happy traveling to everyone and I hope you all have a great time at the mmmmmmetup. Wish I could be there with ‘yall.

  13. Boarding pass is printed and in my satchel. Had a bit of a panic as I didn’t check in for 3 hours into the 24 hour window. Somehow still managed to score an A group boarding pass for Southwest.

    So, you guys have got less than 24 hours to finish hiding the good silverware!

  14. Well that is weird, USB charger (with US plug) won’t charge my iPhone or iPad, but will charge my external battery pack for the iPhone.

    A round robin I will be a going..

    • Van, if you see this before coming over, bring your adapter cable. We can see if it works on my ac plug. If so, you can leave your device plugged in in my room to charge while we have breakfast

  15. I have decided my room needs another window. The sun is beautiful bot only goes into the bedroom. I actually have to turn on a light if I want to sit in the living room. (Yeah, yeah I know, first world problem)

    • On the plus side, sticking my watch on the window sill this morning got it fully charged for the first time in months (solar powered).

      A indication of the inclement weather in the UK this year.

    • In TV land, they call that a clip show.

      Martin must have no soul left. For all the confidence he seems to have that he will live long enough to finish the series whenever he damn well pleases – that must have been an expensive deal with the devil.

      • I believe that in that book, he’ll still be introducing 32 new characters, 68 new story threads, and five new locations.

  16. I don’t have any particular plan to recognize May the 4th, but hey, we can all raise a glass of blue milk, if others feel inclined. Or something.

  17. Safe travels to all traveling today!

    I caravanned Bunny, Van, Ditto, and Tracey to the museum and you’ll all (who are aware) be happy to know that I’ve successfully transferred the bottles on my counter to a shelf in the pantry.

    • Thanks again for helping out so much with the shuttling and the hosting and the food-prepping and everything else, Cj.

  18. “I believe that if, at the end of it all, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn’t always know this, and am happy I lived long enough to find it out.”
    – From Ebert’s 2009 blogpost about death.

    Now I’m all verklempt.

  19. Oh, and while we were out, the kids’ Gramma mopped the floors in my house. I was so incredibly touched by this, I had to share with all of you.

  20. It’s been great seeing everyone and reconnecting this weekend. Let the good times continue to roll! Sorry I’m like a mime. Of all the occasions to lose my voice. . .

    (as seen on Facebook)

  21. So it’s taken 3 days but I’ve finally got the iPad battery charged back up to 100%

    As to HTC who made that cheap bit of tat USB charger..fuck you!!!!!

  22. When did 5 hours of sleep become my best case scenario?

    Mmeetup Saturday was most excellent!! Now for low key mmeetup Sunday!

  23. Well, friends, for me the mmmeetup has again come to an end. I am safely delivered to the airport awaiting my flight home.

    Once again, it has been a weekend of which memories were made that shall grow into legends as time moves on. Once again you guys managed to give me another near death experience by laughter.

    Already looking forward forward to next year.

  24. I had a great everyone, I wish I could have been more available. Who knew “Cards Against Humanity” could be so educational?

    I was perusing http://www.web.archive.org looking over old Deadpan comments and I found this gem:

    “Rhettro Says:

    Amy should be the Deadpan Ambassador. She’s the most well mannered of the group.

    Andrea Says:

    She is Rhett, I agree. ”

    In case anyone wanted to know how Amy became our Ambassador.

    • Very cool, Rhett! Thanks so much for finding that! :happy:

      JR: There was much fun and many good times to be had at this year’s MMMMMeetup. Yes, that was the reason why there weren’t many posts this weekend – we were all having too much fun. :happy: No concert or live Deadpan segments this year, due to Jack losing his voice, but we still had a fantastic time.

      I’m posting this from the Southwest terminal at PHX. My flight is also leaving about 30 minutes late 🙁 Oh, well, at least I have a nice terminal with good food and Wi-Fi to wait in.

  25. At the airport, isle seat booked (yah!), plane will leave late (around 30 minutes..boo!), thanks to everybody for making it a great weekend.
