I look up and all I see is battleship grey.
A color similar to a television tuned to a dead channel.
Hey! How did *he* get the first spot?
I blame the axis spin of the Earth and that England gets to point A before Arizona, USA does.
*he* apparently has some sort of lock on the system. *he* even got the first spot when the show tended to be posted around 3am and I was all exited to be working in Saudi where I would actually be awake when the show posted. I checked every minute, and by the time I saw the show had posted, *he* already had a comment listed. I’ll just never have the dedication to Deadpan that *he* has :jealous:
UH you really think *he* has a lock on the DP website?
You didn’t think that the time difference and the time Jack posts an episode was a simpler explanation?
I’m sure that how *he* got his lock on the system, sure. Not that it should have mattered when I was two time zones ahead of *he* and checking every minute. Maybe the simplest solution is a psychic connection with :Jack: so that *he* always knew the exact time the episode would post.
And I don’t think the lock was on the site, so much as on the ability to get firsties. Not like I think *he* was specifically blocking others from posting, just &$%#ing good at getting there first.
I had another Latka joke, but couldn’t find the time. Maybe in an upcoming episode.
Today I heard this as Laika and wondered why you were referencing a dead dog.
So if a Scott Sigler character can be in Duel, I vote for the Chicken Scissors.
Your ear worm for the day. I really miss these guys.
They are still going UH:
That’s good to know.
Of course, I haven’t listened to their current stuff so maybe I should restrain my joy.
It’s the nutsiest sound around!
DP, I’ve seen a few episodes of Covert Affairs and do like! I have it on my list to watch while on the elliptical (CW: Lie To Me)!
I find CA to be enjoyable fluff.
Kitty is mad. She’s had no food since late yesterday. She’s seeing the vet today and has to fast. She is not a happy kitty.
Pick a city, any city, and see it getting nuked in 3D:
Oh well that site is the bomb.
Congrats Rhettro! *hugs*
I got my Duel of Fates character in last week. I win. :happy:
“It’s sad that a family can be torn apart by something as simple as a pack of wild dogs.”
Channelling Lindy Chamberlain today?
“Dad always thought laughter was the best medicine, which I guess is why several of us died of tuberculosis.”
Playing Oregon Trail again?
“The face of a child can say it all, especially the mouth part of the face.”
Oh for a quart of DDT.
That reminds me. I have yet to get my copy of Spherical Tomi autographed. Must remember to bring it to a meet up one year.
I keep forgetting to bring issue of Interzone Jack’s story was published to get signed.
“Instead of having ‘answers’ on a math test, they should just call them ‘impressions’ and if you got a different ‘impression’ so what, can’t we all be brothers?”
I keep forgetting to have my arm broken so he can sign the cast!
Now that would be hardcore.
“If God dwells inside us, like some people say, I sure hope He like enchiladas, because that’s what He’s getting!”
Although I’m sure Lo could do that for you in the manner of the title of this weeks episode.
“A man doesn’t automatically get my respect. He has to get down in the dirt and beg for it.”
Wow, Lo Pan. I’ll get you your Burlington Coat Factory.
“If you’re ever stuck in some thick undergrowth, in your underwear, don’t stop and think of what other words have ‘under’ in them, because that’s probably the first sign of jungle madness.”

There’s a whole Latka feels in this ep, Jack.
Gotta whole Latka love ?
Duel of the Fates contestant: The Gremlin (The creature from Twilight Zone’s Nightmare at 20,000ft.)
“You what would make a good story? Something about a clown who makes people happy, but inside he’s real sad. Also, he has severe diarrhea.”
Tony. may I get your email address please?
For Nostalgic purposes, of course.
tony@ALMOSTEVERYDOMAINNAMEIOWN.com (And there are a ton of them.)
The easiest to get to me are @backseatproducers.com or @tonymast.com
What are the DOTF categories again? As in all aspects of my life, I can only think of “sexual prowess.”
“When you go in for a job interview, I think a good thing to ask is if they ever press charges.”
Lo Pan comes in Handy today.
EssBee, they are:
1: Most Iconic.
2: Love Prowess.
3: Who’d win in a fight?
4: Rotating silly category.
I just heard you list them in the episode – sorry!
when you say “Deadpan Characters” do you mean that they must be a topic of an episode?
Or just brought up in the comments?
Could they be a character that has been a recurring theme during the DP’s history?
I think I just need a smidge of guidance on what the character parameters are.
If the character has somehow been referenced in a past Deadpan episode – however directly or indirectly – then they’re fair game.
“We tend to scoff at the beliefs of the ancients. But we can’t scoff at them personally, to their faces, and this is what annoys me.”
Do intros count?
If you feel like you can justify the link (see UsedHair’s Chicken Scissors comment above), then go ahead and suggest them. Intros would definitely count.
Please make it so!
Yesterday I played the part of an electrician.
The key is to go slow and pay close attention and then you get to go home when your done.
Today I am playing the part of I.T. Department.
I think I prefer the possibility of sudden painful death.
minus “your”, plus “you’re”
“If I lived in the Wild West days, instead of carrying a six-gun in my holster, I’d carry a soldering iron. That was if some smart-aleck cowboy said something like, “Hey look. He’s carrying a soldering iron!” and started laughing, and everybody else started laughing, I could just say, “That’s right, it’s a soldering iron. The soldering iron of justice.” Then everyone would get real quiet and ashamed, because they made fun of the soldering iron of justice, and I could probably hit them up for a free drink.”
Only if you were wearing a mini skirt at the time..and a blonde wig..
Your crap joke for the day:
My girlfriend came home grinning from ear to ear.
I asked her “why are you so happy”.
“I jogged home behind a bus and saved $1.95” she said.
Bloody idiot, if she had jogged behind a taxi she would have saved $14.00…
And then there’s Van…
Banana Kong goes free for a short time:
Banana Dong on the other hand, still costs a bit of money.
I’ll get your banana peel.
ON 5150 HOLD
Who knew too much Van Halen could be harmful?
Its all of David’s leg kicking
or keg licking
She probably 812.
My DOTF Characters have been submitted. I am so looking forward to seeing all the characters chosen, as this will be my first Duel of the Fates.
Mine as well! Pixie, I hate to tell you this, but my characters will sexual prowess the hell out of yours.
Ive got the silly category and the intangibles wrapped up around all the coat-wearing-jerry curled- infinite tenticles
Opps! Did I give too much away?
Your DOTF Primer – http://www.winginitarchives.com/2006/07/wingin-it-69/ It starts at about 11:15.
That was the best Doodle evahhhhhh.
So today has been a wonderfully shitty day of waiting on other people to get network/disk issues fixed so they stop corrupting my databases.
My rebellion? I just bought 2 Kip Winger solo albums. That’s how I roll, Mutha Fuckas!
You just can’t get enough.
Reb Beach and I are both appalled by your hairy-chested purchases, Tony.
Men of hairy chests need to stick together. You don’t know how much I appreciated the fact that you could see wisps of chest hair just above the suit in Man of Steel.
“hairy chests need to stick together.”
Like velcro ?
Exactly like velcro!
Went past the place today at work, Police and Fireman all over the place, very sad:
You know right how to get me.
Oh my God. This is hilarious!
Fuck. A. Duck…..
okay, last bit of health information that this RN will shove down your throats
30 min of drinking the key to happier me 😉
“down your throats”
“this RN will shove”
I know, RIGHT?
CD: Odyddey Brewers (Arvada, CO) Ghost Rider APA
whats an APA?
American Pale Ale. It’s not as hoppy or alcoholic (usually) as an IPA
CD: Pug Ryan’s (Dillon, CO) Peacemaker Pilsner
CD: Dr. McGillicuddy’s Fresh Vanilla Liquor and coke
that’s 3 drinks in just as many minutes.
impressive. You could make it your 30 minutes of exercise
My gut says I should actually exercise…
You keep drinking at this rate tonight and you may exercise that gut yet! :sick:
How else do I get thru laundry and dishes and bills?
Not to mention the lions and tigers and bears.
You folks are in rare form today.
I think the Chicken Scissors are going to have to go to the penalty box for the “Love Prowess” category.
“Contrary to what most people say, the most dangerous animal in the world is not the lion or the tiger or even the elephant. It’s a shark riding on an elephant’s back, just trampling and eating everything they see.”
Oh, and congrats to Rhettro on his new found upward mobility!
I’ve read 17 of these.
When I was a little girl, Tuck Everlasting was my favourite book.
I’m going to have to put this list in front of Holden. He loves to read as long as he finds it himself. Suggest a book to him and you can guarantee he won’t pick it up.
We finally got him to read Harry Potter by taking away all screens except for his Nook… but only so long as it had a book on it and not a game.
He plowed through all all 7 books in 6 weeks. (The first couple of weeks were during Christmas Break). I bet he’d enjoy a good number of these books.
And these are fun. Spoilery fun.
Goodnight :mush-y peas:
Add sausage, mashed potatoes and gravy = yum
You obviously know your bangers.
Just as long as they’re not all together inside a pasty! Cthulhu forbid!
:I’m just kidding with you, Van:
Later today we are having friends over for dinner and gaming. We will probably play some Mice and Mystics, then move to some D & D (Which, I know, is basically what Mice and Mystics is but with less visuals)
So you know how most phone services now have a “Call Forwarding” feature? That’s the one where you can set up a list of numbers and if any of those numbers call you they can be automatically forwarded to some number OTHER than yours.
With my system it is easy to add the “last number that called you” to that forwarded list. This makes it real convenient to add telemarketers to the list. If they call more than once (as frequently happens) they simply get directed somewhere else.
Where to send them?
It occurred to me that since congress actually installed loopholes in the “Do Not Call” registry to allow this scum to bother us, Congressmen must LIKE these calls. So who am I to deny them of their joy?
My congressman has a local office. With a local phone number.
That’s all I’m saying about that.
Brills upon genius.
What beer labels look like in Hogsmeade.
Man, I bet drunk wizards are assholes.
Maybe Saruman as just hitting the sauce a little too hard?
Your pallet cleanser for the day. http://cavnews.wordpress.com/2013/07/16/21-pictures-that-will-restore-your-faith-in-humanity/
Finally catching up on my podcasts.
I nominate 1980’s, “Weird Science” Kelly LeBrock.
that’s a nomination for DOTF btw
Love the Photoshopping.
I bottled my first batch of beer last night! It tasted great – I’m so happy!
ditto/JOe: do you have any recipes to share that utilize Amber extract syrup? I got a 6# can of it along with my kit, so want to use it before I go out seeking other recipes. I prefer ales, because my house is HOT.
WTG! Cant wait to try it
YOU WILL TRY IT
You’ll make him bark using that tone of voice.
Not off hand.
I recommend going to Northern Brewer
Looking for a tasty ale and see what the ingredients are. Then order any other bits you need!
“Beer is like porn. You can go out and buy it but it is a LOT more fun to make your own.”
BTW – just got this e-mail from Northern Brewer.
“Take Advantage of Flat Rate Shipping
$5.99 Flat Rate Shipping on all qualifying products.
Offer valid 24 hours only until Midnight CST 07/25/2013. No promo code required.”
JOe, I have a great neighborhood brew store. I was thinking of taking the odds and ends ingredients I have over there and asking for help with a recipe. This is my shop:
This is a good test for them. If they helpfully offer some suggestions then they should be supported with your valuable dollars. If they don’t have time for you … bah!
Congrats, EssBee. What style did you make? Did I miss that detail somewhere?
Your crap joke for the evening:
An old couple is in a taxi in America.The taxi driver says “So which part of England are you folks from?”The old man replies “From Yorkshire”..The old lady says “What did he say?”The old man says “He asked which part of England we are from and I said Yorkshire”..The taxi driver says “I’ve been to Yorkshire once. I stayed with an old couple. The woman was horrible, a right bitch, it put me off going to England forever.”The old lady says “What did he say?”The old man says “I think the driver knows you!”
CW: True Blood S6 E5
This is PRON!
Cacao to True Blood
Rhettro: Congrats on the great news! :happy:
Wow. This is episode #280.
Really looking forward to Duel of the Fates. I think it’s a great idea for the grand finale. 🙂
Good night, mush.
You’re welcome! 🙂
BTW – enjoyed the Slaughter House 5 episode. I know have a desire to see the movie. or read the book. Which ever I can make happen first.
Thanks, J0e. I recommend both experiences. In no particular order, since time isn’t linear anyway.
What the guitar player said.
Worth a gander:
That was a really cool video. Thanks.
‘The World’s End’
Fun, but in my view the worst of the three film now referred to as the cornetto trilogy.
I have yet to watch, but I don’t have much hope. The upside could be a modern revival of the Samurai film genre, which would make me giddy.
“Videodrome” was available for free streaming on cable this month. It made me think that if a remake ever got made it might create a modern revival of the “hallucinating giant vaginae on your stomach” genre.
That would settle the innie/outtie outtie bellybutton question……………….
The 47 Ronin trailer was kinda terrible, but it still gets me right in the cockles.
Activity #1 most people take for granted :
Free access and no restrictions to take bio breaks while on the job.
If you are talking access to the toilet, then no I don’t take it for granted at work.
Time off to work on your biography.
I just got a complement on my WWBD bumper sticker!
Heading home after seeing Julian Evans play ‘Chopin by candlelight’
Seems I am a philistine ..
Better than being a Pharasee
…or seeing Julia Childs play ‘Chopin by candlelight’.
Mark Hamill might be my favorite.
So. Boobs then?
Yes, Hillary Clinton was pretty impressive too.
DO NOT GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH ‘unicorn man’!!!!!!!!!!!!
Im still blind
Mom said that would happen.
I dunno, the figureine looks ah-mazing & would probably fetch some cash on ebay.
Well, I finally got around to reading “Old Man’s War” this past week. It’s a fairly short book, but a most impressive yarn. Now working my way through the sequel novel.
I liked that one pretty good!
Just started reading it this week, I like it so far.
My head exploded while reading this.
“… fired a control laser at an opaque crystal, sending its atoms into a quantum superposition of two states.”
Are you sure this isn’t a script from a Dr. Who episode?
You are going to need a bigger shelf:
So if youre an Eastern Bloc country, and you have a bit of room…well anywhere.. just go ahead and put a plane there. Thats good stuff.
I thought I took them for granted around here, but jeeeebus.
And I can see those fighter planes… and I can see those fighter planes…
Yesterday I was the good granddaughter and took my grandmother shopping.
Today I’m going to be the gook worker and edit audio.
This afternoon I may even have time for a Play by Play. This recent gem is what’s up next on my DVR
Im not sure Lo Pan can handle it
I’m already spicy just looking at the poster.
Saw it at the flicks, not that impressed.
Yeah I’m not in it for the film, Van
There are better JL films to drool at.
Possibly more satisfying.
Thats sassy, see.
I liked that version :happy:
Well, shit, there’s goes another afternoon lost down a Youtube rabbit hole…
And now for one of my favorite bits of crap engineering humor:
A pastor, a doctor and an engineer wait for a particularly slow group of golfers. The engineer fumes, “What’s with these guys? We’ve been waiting for 15 minutes!”
The pastor says, “Hey, here comes the groundskeeper. Let’s have a word with him.”
“Say, George, what’s with that group ahead of us? They’re rather slow, aren’t they?” the doctor asks.
The groundskeeper tells them that the other golfers are a group of blind firefighters who lost their sight saving the clubhouse from a fire and that they come and play for free whenever they want.
The group is silent for a moment.
The pastor says, “That’s so sad. I will say a special prayer for them tonight.”
The doctor says, “Good idea. I’m going to contact my ophthalmologist buddy and see if there’s anything he can do for them.”
The engineer says, “Why can’t these guys play at night?”
Was that the red pill or the blue pill you took, Ed
Ok peeps, you were warned.
Today’s movie is House at the End Of e Street
The DVR write up: I this chilling tale of horror, a recent divorcee discovers that the house next door was the site of a double murder, and the sole survivor of the killings soon takes an interest in her daughter
Violence and coarse language. No nudity. *shrig*. In the words of Meatloaf, “two out of three ain’t bad”
Way too many companies helped produce this movie.
A snow globe. Really scary
A stormy night.
We’ve had those just about every night for a week now
That’s one daughter who’s getting a lump of coal this Christmas
That’s a good way to catch pnemonia
Holy crap, that’s a beautiful looking house
Tweet, twitter, chirp
This place is going to be really good for us
Not an over used trope at all
A light where no light should be
Meeting the neighbours
Ghost stories about the kids next door
Hey, Edward Cullen is watching her…oh, maybe not. Just a similar type of angsty kid
That “famine relief” group seems more like a party
Drunk and in the bedroom
Tyler is drunk and horny
I don’t even do that
Come in to my car little girl
Wait, which one is the vampire and which one is the werewolf?
Flip that house
Dawn, when all the best thought haven’t been taken yet
Yum, home cooked soup. It took a lot of effort to open that can
I don’t think I’ve ever lived in a house with a cellar
What’s wrong with getting professional help?
Be our singer
Flirting with the cop
She’s awfully nosy
Mom and dad are bad
Sometimes people can’t be fixed
Oh oh. Sister’s loose and on the prowel
Mom sets up a date with the boy next door
“she’s awfully noisy”
Damn it, Lo. You made me go back and double check what I wrote
Tattling on mommy
Mom’s a bitch
You are raising a decent girl
Wow, let the compliments flow
That tree looks like a vagina
Making out with the angsty kid
Sister’s pretty smart for someone who’s insane
The race is on
I honestly don’t think it’s that easy to break someone’s neck
Awwww, mom bought he makeup
+r in there somewhere
Once my mom bought me a hair crimped. Those who have seen me will know why this was hilarious
That’s not very nice
That’s even worse
Now why would the boor lonely boy need tampons?
The cop is going to check up on the kids
She found the basement
She found the cellar
Really, how nosy (wiggles nose at Lo Pan) can one get?
Turns out sister wasn’t dead, just gagged
The plot thickens
Ryan is just a little crazy
In dear, another trope
Ha! The cop knows he’s lying
I think that’s illegal
Where is his gun?
Seriously, she doesn’t know how to open a garage door?
Meet my elephant
He’s not very nice at all
The battle begins
Oh yeah, the flighty flashlight
Way to go mom
* sigh*. Another trope ending
Van was right. Meh
You should have PBP’ed the “1927 Call Me Maybe” video.
CW: The Incredibles
Yeah, still a cool movie.
Where is my super suit?
Well Lo this should keep you occupied:
Look at our state!!
Bliss. Napa Valley of beer, Ess. Thats us.
This year’s Perseid Meteor Shower should be awesome.
Aug 12-13th is the peak
I see your 1927 Call Me Maybe and raise you a Country version of Ke$ha’s “Die Young”
Yeah, I’m really liking his stuff. Sk8er Boi was cool too.
I could probably watch their “Call Me Maybe” video with the sound off.
CP: 1927 “Call Me Maybe”
I never knew elves were Bavarian.
Where are dwarves from then?
Yeah, I thought about posting that link yesterday. I’m still processing all of the points he makes. Therr are some great, empowering messages there.
Three things I love about this article. Despite everyone involved fully admitting that it is an utterly useless experiment:
1. There is a competitor
2. The competitor scooped the longer running experiment to the punch line
3. There are 22,000 people still avidly waiting the outcome of the experiment
That guy should come over and watch my sink. It’d be a nonstop thrill for him.
Crap joke for the evening:
After landing my new job as a Walmart greeter, a good find for many retirees, I lasted less than a day. Here’s what happened:
About two hours into my first day on the job a very loud, decidedly unattractive, woman walked into the store along with her two kids, yelling obscenities at them all the way through the entrance.
As I had been instructed, I said, pleasantly, “Good morning and welcome to Walmart.”
I then said, “Nice children you have there. Are they twins?”
The ugly woman stopped yelling long enough to say, “Don’t be fucking stupid. Of course they aren’t twins. The oldest one’s 9, and the other one’ s 7. Why the hell would you think they’re twins? Are you blind, or just stupid?”
I replied, “I’m neither blind nor stupid, Madam. I just couldn’t believe someone fucked you twice. Have a good day and thank you for shopping at Walmart.”
My Supervisor said I probably wasn’t cut out for this line of work.
*Link to the coats page at walmart.com*
I’m digging this new nin song:
One more link for you:
Cool or heresy, you decide:
I’m split. Several of those I wasn’t familiar with at all. Those that I did know, I generally liked what they did.
Most of those look colorized, as opposed to true color photos. It’s fine, kinda cool, actually. My panties remain unbunched.
Ive never understood the foo fah over colorization. Its not like the original b&w photos/films dont still exist, see.
Visited Edlingham Castle today:
That looked cool, Van
Was it in ruins before you arrived, Van?
Saw The Wolverine over the weekend. It was pretty much what I expected, therefore I quite enjoyed it.
Hey guys. I got around to seeing my only film of the summer in the theaters. Iron Man 3 is still relevant, right guys? Guys?
Dont patronize me lady ;P
Quietly sits to the side, having still not seen IM3 either.
CD: Boulevard Reverb Imperial Pils
Boulevard. The best thing to come out of KC since Dave C.
And the Sunshine Band.
A hearty HISS my friend.
We just finished watching Cloud Atlas.
My head is spinning on six axes.
It’s a brilliant film, but it’s along, difficult journey. I’m still processing all of the story threads.
We read the book – interested in the film . . .
Did the six axes cause the eight head in a duffle bag?
CP: Urge Overkill’s “Stull” EP
We saw Wolverine and were pleasantly surprised.
Jack and I have out kilts on and ready to poop them.
Off to the Conjuring!
Apparently, English must be my second language…
The Ring and Cabin in the Woods have pretty well ruined me for all other horror films be it psychological or slasher. Enjoy hearing your thoughts on it tho.
My kilt is unsoiled, but I’d still give the movie a Thumbs Up as a spooky haunted house flick. Nothing like *The Scene* in The Ring.
On his hatred of deer…
“I would happily blow 20 guys in an alley with bleeding dicks so I could get AIDS and then fuck a deer and then kill it with my AIDS. I would do that in a second.”
I love Louie CK so much. So. Much.
See! See! Mush.
Could an enormous chicken watch Cabin In The Woods?
Mmmmmmmmmm Id make her.
An enormous chicken? Like the one that fights Peter Griffin?
I think it’s worth the risk… Cabin has a few shocking moments and frightening images, but really, it has more laughs than anything.
and it has Joss Whedon as a writer, so how much more grimm could it be than some of the Buffy episodes?
It’s kind of gloomy outside today.
Ok, time to get motivated to do some actual work…
Well, I cleaned the washroom, changed the kitty litter, and took out the garbage. Now I guess I have no real reason not to do my other work.
You know what, I still haven’t started working. I’m wondering if I should just call this day a write-off since I would only put in an hour and a half at this point.
Crap joke for the day:
A man was walking along the beach at Malibu when he found a bottle. He looked around and didn’t see anyone so he opened it.A genie appeared and thanked the man for letting him out. The genie said, “For your kindness I will grant you one wish, but only one..”The man thought for a minute and said, “I have always wanted to go to Hawaii but have never been able to because I’m afraid of flying and ships make me claustrophobic and ill. So, I wish for a bridge to be built from here to Hawaii.”The genie thought for a few minutes and said, “No, I don’t think I can do that. Just think of all the work involved with the pilings needed to hold up the highway and how deep they would have to be to reach the bottom of the ocean. Think of all the pavement that would be needed.No, that is just too much to ask.”The man thought for a minute and then told the genie, “There is one other thing that I have always wanted. I would like to be able to understand women. What makes them laugh and cry, why are they temperamental, why are they so difficult to get along with? Basically, what makes them tick?”The genie considered for a few minutes and said, “So, do you want two lanes or four?
Believe it or not, I actually did some work.
Believe it or not, I’m walking on air. I never thought I……
We’re all Mexican,
we’re all Mexican,
we’re all Mexican,
we’re all Mexican lucky.
I’m going to eat you little fishy
I’m going to eat you little fishy
I’m going to eat you little fishy
Because I like eating fish
Ok, I have a strawberry shake in me. Now to really do some work.
Yes, Kill ‘Em All is 30.
God, I feel old.
To add to that:
Geddy Lee celebrates his 60th birthday today.
Ha! How do people expect me to work when I don’t have access to the information?
Tut tut TEB, no warning about the sequence after the credits starting rolling with two cool cameos.
Which I enjoyed for what it was.
It’s a well known fact you stay through the credits for a Marvel film, Van.
Well I shall try and have a lie in tomorrow so somebody else can tickle the fancy of the deadpan lock by inserting themselves in a gentleman (or gentlewoman) manner..
The guy doing this cover I actually saw playing at a free gig in a coffee shop:
Oh and before Morpheus grabs me, this is cool:
Very cool! I’d also be really impressed if you saw that in a coffee shop.
Essbee – don’t know if you have tried “Cabin in the woods” yet but I’d vote YES!
It is worth the handful (?) of moments where a squeamish person might want to avert their gaze, in order to immerse yourself in all of the Joss Whedon creamy creative goodness!
Also, (trying not to venture to far into spoiler land) … it is sort of the punctuation for the entire genre’. So if you have ever seen any “handful of youths get isolated and (fill in the blank)” films, you owe it to yourself to see this one. It is the punchline.
