They love you JJ and just want to protect you from looking out into the abyss….
Your bad taste cheap joke:
After my wife died of a heart attack i didn’t want to settle down again straight away, i wanted to have some fun first. So i went online to find a young girl with big tits that i could have casual sex with.
Needless to say my inlaws weren’t impressed. They thought i should have called an ambulance first.
Free and crap..bloody iPhone
WWC over. Life will now get back to normal, whatever that means.
Cool music episode, Jack! :cheerful:
Thank you! 🙂 It’s about time I released these mashups as an “album” episode.
And since it’s all about me! me! me!, I do want to point out that “Perfect Green Woman” is a world premiere. Pixie got to hear it repeatedly in its developmental stages last week, while I tinkered and brought it to its current form.
The “Burton Messiah” and “Circle” remixes are also greatly improved.
iTunes didn’t DL the episode today, dammit!!! I can’t listen until later.
Anyone one else have download issues for this episode?
The final season of Breaking Bad got off to a good start..bloody hell that final scene was just electric.
I would love to do an off-Pan spoilery discussion about BB, similar to what Jeremy, Jack, Alvie, reaper?, and I did during the last season of Lost. Anyone interested? Where could we do this?
Smart, smart show. Damn.
I’m Jesse’s girl, just for the record.
Oi!!!! Pacu stay off my nuts:
That should be there and not there ^^^^^
I’m still at the intersection of BB seasons 4 and 5, so I wouldn’t partake, but I could set up a post here for spoiler-conscious-free discussion.
I’d get into that.
Testicle biting fish?
I’d get in on the Breaking Bad discussion too. It’s SO GOOD.
Wow, these prices are INSAAAANNNNE.
I wonder just how far those Crazy Eddie commercials were broadcast. I lived in upstate NY (hours from any Crazy Eddie stores) and saw them all the time. I think that was a result of the old broadcasting model (before cable) where I had access to channel 11 from New York city.
I watched The Odd Couple reruns every night and after school cartoons on channel 11 from NYC.
This is pretty impressive.
Hoes be like “Hoes be like…”
But they be the hoes that be like.
OK, the echoing tumbleweeds have forced me to post another mindlessly silly link:
You could also test how quickly your hearing has aged:
Wait, Jack is a musician? Next you guys are going to tell me he’s a writer, too.
Well clouds stopped me seeing the Perseids again this year,
I was subjected to the same rude treatment. 🙁
Not Panning in a towel this morning. Actually showered and dressed. What’s that about?
That doesn’t sound like me at all.
Van no longer has to worry about drinking with me.
You mean I’m not going to wake up in bed with you and Essbee, with no memory and sporting a blond Whig?
No I’m just saying now you wont be passed out while it happens….
That straw is a great idea. Although it’s sad that someone had to come up with it.
It’s even sadder that someone needs roofies in order to get laid.
I now have a bandage on the inside of my left elbow from having blood drawn for a health screening this morning. That wasn’t as bad as I’d feared. 🙂
Great episode, Jack!
Your crap joke for the day:
An old Italian guy goes into the confessional box .. “Father, during world War 2 I rescued a beautiful Jewish girl from the Nazis & hid her in my attic. To show her gratitude, she used to shag me every night & give me 2 blow jobs on a Sunday.” “My son,” said the Priest, “it was a very difficult time in our lives & you shouldn’t feel so guilty.” “I know,” said the old guy, “but should I tell her the War is over?
How did my ear end up on the floor? My god, it’s been talked off!
Now you can lend it to someone?
My cat is being particularly bratty today.
She’s getting to be a saucy old lady.
This is really cool, like a real-life manifestation of the bridge in those William Gibson novels.
I saw this earlier. This is fascinating, genius, and sad. Id love to see more than a short 6 minute doc on this
On a similar vein:
Ladies and gentlemen… Ms. Tara Reid

Nice set of games in the latest Humble Bundle:
Dr. Who fans– an easter egg on google maps
I’m just gonna set this link down right here and walk away from it….
I fucking shouldnt have picked it up…
I stopped at the headline.
I stopped about halfway through reading the link…
He is a sad, strange little man.
HE would use the roofies.
He would use them and find a way to blame it on the person he gave them to.
I’m seriously considering today’s Humble Bundle
I posted the link earlier, I’m just not sure I would find the time to play them.
this is very cool art from photopgraphy. Not sure if I’m willing to toss my cameras though.
Rhett has been quiet lately! I had a delicious greaseburger lunch right up the street from his house today.
Rhett will be back. Think hes just in a ditto-level heap of busy.
Now look at these insane motherfuxing things.
It occurs to me, I do an awful lot of work in the morning wearing just a towel. Go figure.
Well are all glad we know where your towel is.
OO! I have my own link featuring an interesting places slideshow!
I enjoyed every single one of these images
Kick Ass 2:
Plot not as good as the first film, Jim Carey hardly in it, nice fight choreography,
And it has a post credit sequence (short).
Guess who’s birthday today?

I am sad. I couldn’t make it work.
I like this post better than the assy Slate one Jack shared last night:
My kitty thinks all should be about her. I think it should be about…
The DVR write up: a down on his luck superhero attempts to confront his cheating girlfriend in this hilarious and innovative comedy set in a world where the public have grown tired of costumed crime fighters.
Remember, innovative and hilarious
That looks evil
Twelve hours earlier…
Do you think superheroes actually sleep in their super outfits too? You’d think the outfit would get a little manky after a while
He has white butt patches on his blue outfit
Changing into civvies
Woah, Fridge looks like he’s a little happy in his tight blue outfit
Don’t question my amazingness!
Superheroes are not allowed to carry weapons
Daddy went nuts
Girlfriend is cheating on him with him
Your tits are so much nicer than my wife’s
Superman is a fictional character
It’s not quite like the shining, but it’s a lot like the shining
CeeThrough is on drugs
Superheroes are leaving their clothes everywhere when they change into their outfits
Fridge is really messed up
I don’t love you, I love Fridge… Even if you are the same person
I can’t believe I let you ice all over my face
Fridge being so happy in his tight little suit is actually quite distracting
Dance monkey, dance
Brendon, I am your uncle
He upended her cupcakes
Don’t inject it in my mind
Super villains are cool
Dr. Seuss would have been proud
Superheroes need a super villain
Captain Amazing’s revenge be-iach!
Now I’m evil
Wrapping up the frozen guy
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a stupid dead bitch
Fridge is dead. Long live Brendon
You know what, I kind of liked this movie
This one almost sounded mmmeetup worthy.
Handed off on the goal line and run in for a TD!
On second thought, 19.99 per month for a tshirt or collectible is too steep.
Not to mention that this nerdblock ships from Canada. I was on the fence about the $19.99 per month until I saw that shipping for me would be an additional $9.50 per month putting the whole thing squarely outside my price range. This has the potential to be a company like Archie Mcphee that started out selling such products as rubber chickens, old toys produced for cereal boxes and odd trinkets from other countries through a mail order catalog (pre-internet) and eventually started producing their own products to find their own particular sub-culture of customers. Would be great to get in at the start for something like that, but I just can’t swing 30 a month right now.
I suspect that most of these are legit.
I dunno, some of those look too good to be true.
I agree. Photoshop has ruined the well-timed picture for me.
Next you guys will say the photos of Nessie were faked.
Your crap joke for a wet Friday morning:
An elderly man driving erratically was stopped by the police around 2 a.m. and was asked where he was going at that time of night.The man replied, “I’m on my way to a lecture about alcohol abuse and the effects it has on the human body, as well as smoking and staying out late.”The officer then asked, “Really? Who’s giving that lecture at this time of night? The man replied, “That would be my wife.”
..and your bonus crap joke is:
Why God never got a PhD
1. He had only one major publication.
2. It was written in Aramaic, not in English.
3. It has no references.
4. It wasn’t even published in a refereed journal.
5. There are serious doubts he wrote it himself.
6. It may be true that he created the world, but what has he done since
7. His cooperative efforts have been quite limited.
8. The Scientific community has had a hard time replicating his results.
9. He unlawfully performed not only Animal, but *Human* testing.
10. When one experiment went awry, he tried to cover it by drowning his
11. When subjects didn’t behave as predicted, he deleted them from
12. He rarely came to class, just told his students to read the book.
13. Some say he had his son to teach the class.
14. He expelled his first two students for learning.
15. Although there were only 10 requirements, most of his students
failed his tests.
16. His office hours were infrequent and usually held on a mountain top.
I’ve been meaning to ask since the new season of Arrested Development came out on Netflix. Did any of the Phoenix group see the new season with the attempt of one of the characters to move to Phoenix? My only trip there was in the winter so I wasn’t able to fully appreciate it from first hand experience, but I definitely got what they were going for.
Well, I’m hot blooded, check it and see

Another busy day. Today’s schedule:
Fill out form to put our publication on libraries ereading list.
audio book edits
July month end accounting
I’m mostly situational with a touch of free-range
I’m more of a “free-range, it’s complicated” type of reader.
I’m primarily a “multitasker” because of the “It’s Complicated”, “Bathroom Reader” and “Audiobook Listener” status. I have a hard copy book in the bathroom at home, an audiobook that I listen to when I’m doing tasks that wouldn’t allow regular reading (like washing the dishes), and an ebook on my phone for any other time I can find to squeeze in a page or two. Takes me 3 months to read 3 books, but (dammit) I will get through them!
Jack, did you ever come up with a “rotating” category?
Why, thanks for asking, Bunny! I will announce the Rotating Category (or categories???) in Episode 284, when I announce the whole official DotF Royale with Cheese Doodle contestants and final rules….
It’s only 11, and I’m already mentally exhausted. I’ve been going back-and-forth between 3 issues.
I think your idea of a fun time and mine differ.
My Google home page layout has changed… and my computer is acting a tad finicky.
The computer says YES!!!!
Amazon is asking me how many times I’ve wanted to print something from Facebook. Then it offers me some sort of super fancy printer.
I wasn’t aware that printing something from Facebook was such an arcane art that it required a special magic printer to do.
I saw the same offer, but on Facebook as a Promotional Status from Amazon in my News Feed
This wireless color printer is the Deal of the Day.
I wasn’t aware that there was content of Facebook worth printing/

Jack, I reposted hubby’s link on FaceBook
Decided I’m not a fan of the Ginja Ninja Ginger beer (http://gib.ca/beer/ginja-ninja-ginger-beer/#). The AC/DC beer tastes like any other lager.

Saw “Despicable Me 2” today.
It was fun.
Tonight I had a comedy retrospective evening.
Two films I had never seen.
Marx Brother’s “Duck Soup”.
Jerry Lewis “Whose minding the store”.
Duck Soup was so discombobulated it almost made me feel trippy.
The Jerry Lewis movie was so tiring it made me wish I was tripping.
Amazing that Lewis and the Marx Bros were such huge cultural icons. Both films did have moments that made me laugh out loud … but all in all, I will never again think that bad comedy movies showed up with Jim Carey or Adam Sandler.
I’m not a Jerry Lewis fan, but you have to keep in mind that these comedians were playing in the sandboxes of their time. There are probably better Marx Brothers Movies (Duck Soup wasn’t a big success for them) and I encourage you to keep trying with them. Again, I haven’t really watched Jerry Lewis so I can’t judge for him, but to put the Marx Brothers in a category with Jim Carey and Adam Sandler seems a bit harsh. Feel free to put the Three Stooges in that category (although I love the Stooges far, far more than Jim or Adam) because it was a mindless and purely visual/physical style of humor. I think the Marx Brothers actually went a long way in moving us past the purely visual/physical style of vaudeville comedy of the time, into more intelligent humor that one had to pay attention to in order to catch everything that was going on.
I always preferred the Marx Brothers over the Three Stooges.
Laurel and Hardy for me, far superior to the 3 Stooges in my view.
Yes, I didn’t really mean to lump the Marx and Lewis comedy styles together. I guess I was holding them up as examples of comedian’s who were KINGS of their particular sandboxes, but now their shtick seemed awfully thin.
Not unfunny though!
As I said, both made me laugh out loud at times but in the case of Lewis, I found his bit grew very tiresome after 10 minutes or so. Not really enough to support a feature length movie by himself. I believe that’s probably why he did so well when he teamed up with Dean Martin. As a co-star, his shtick wouldn’t have to support the whole film.
As for the Marx Bros film, it was just exhausting.
The one liners were funny but they came at you in an unrelenting, machine-gun fashion and I found myself becoming numb to it.
I do want to check out some of their other films though. I suspect if they were simply co-stars in a movie, where they appeared for a minute or so every other scene to add some humor, it might work quite well.
I’ve never seen any Jerry Lewis films. I find his style so grating, I doubt if I’d be able to stand it for more than a few minutes.
I’ve only seen isolated clips from Duck Soup, and enjoyed mpst of them, but then I wouldn’t suffer the exhaustion J0e mentioned just from watching clips.
Hmmm, I know I had posted a comment to this last night, but now it’s not here. Ah well, I can’t remember what it was anyway.

Hey guys, I’m back. The new job has me busy, very busy. The office is great, the people are great, the schedule of work, no so much. Hopefully things will mellow out in a few months, but if they don’t I may have to start looking again. Time will tell. Anyways, I hope everything is good in Deadpan Land.
Happy for the positive portions of that message, Rhett!

dear god… the interview is as entertaining as the video
ukke ukke ukke ukke
I no longer feel guilty for laughing at the first video.
You know what, everyone needs to watch that interview and pause at the 3:28 mark.
At this point, I begin to wonder if we’re falling for a clever, elaborate “Waiting For Guffman” type of satire.

Woo Hoo! New Omni. I’ve been waiting for this for so long.

This morning, I am a plumber.
I only WISH that was a euphemism.
*breathless voice* Hey J0e. Have you come to inspect my…pipe?
Oh J0e. . . there seems to a bunch of gunk and hair and old food stuck in there. . .
No, I guess that wasn’t sexy at all.

Of all the horrible things our elected employees have been doing lately (drone strikes, domestic spying, privatizing EVERYTHING, etc.), the strip-mining of our school system may be the worst. The appalling cuts happening in PA seems to be pretty typical.
Just the beginning…
I just went looking through the house for the cat. I looked everywhere. Where did I find her, in her basket. I looked there once already but only saw her teddy bear. She’s the same colour as her bear so she just blended right in. *sigh* silly kitty :silly:
Thank you for following my cranky comment with a cute one. 🙂 That was much-needed.

Hemorrhaging faucet (far more then a “leak”) has been replaced.
This project’s plumbing surprise? The cut-off valve for the hot water supply, does not. So I turn of the valves under the sink, disconnect the faucet and the hot water line immediately starts peeing on me.
Fortunately I had just emptied a gallon milk jug and could use it as a reservoir.
Now is the several hour waiting period where I watch closely for leaks.
I hate plumbing.

Really? I’ve been hearing good things. But then, I stopped after the brilliant Lithgow season.
Keep it that way. Allow your remembrance to be untarnished.

LOVE this song.
Lord I dont know.. on the one hand its pretty goddamn impressive. On the other hand its hard not to think of it as an anti-chipmunks goof.
That guitar is great tho. Really wonderful.
There are actually a few songs done slowed down. Some of them are very good.
I see my reading list just expanded
Why would someone even think this is a good idea?
Good Morning, Pannites!

I think Amazon has embraced its meta…
You know, as I look up James Hong on IMDB, I’m a bit dissapointed that Big Trouble in Little China doesn’t rate as the top for of what he’s known for. But, I guess he has had a pretty extensive career.
But, really, I doubt more people think “General Hospital” first for him.
Dammit, that reply should have been to my other comment.
Not Revenge of the Nerds II???
I shall marry both Panites
Visited this place on Sunday gone:
Unlike the guy who shot the video, I could only walk around the security fence (getting a bit too old to jump overspikes fences)
The hospital grounds look a perfect setting for a post apocalypse movie, over grown roads and dead street lamps..
I spotted your pics from the place. Cool stuff, Van. We should head over there and film a horror movie.
