Time to Choo Choo.
Second comment of the week, and I’m already speechless.
If only I had a way to listen right now…
I had been hoping obviously for penultimate firsties or even fisties, but as Van had firsties and Jack had fisties…
We can all find just a bit of hope in the promise of a Peanuts feature film.
Oh, that wacky Evo, getting on FoxNews, and slipping in the word, “liberal.”
I hope he sells lots of copies of his diet book. He should have pimped it!
The responses to it on FARK were even more full of derp than what I’m using to seeing there. Reading comprehension is apparently no longer a required skill to escape from school.
WTF is wrong with Shepherd Smith’s… everything?
Bit busy in the comments section for this time of the morning.
Well I like to keep you entertained, keeps you out of trouble.
Does The Door’s cvrsion of this come in Parts 1 & 2?
Now if I understood the question…
You have entered a world not of sight nor sound…but of mind.
Ride the highway west, baby.
Read as: ride the highway wet, baby…
Given that the end is nigh, I couldn’t help but whip out my marmot.
You could get arrested for that.
I’m awake. That’s about as much as you can expect of me at for the time being.
A strange thing happened after I updated my IOS on my phone. I could no longer send and receive texts. I didn’t realize this until hubby came home earlier than expected yesterday. He usually texts first before he comes home but I didn’t get one from him yesterday. After much testing and cursing, it took a hard reboot to get be able to text again. Strange.
Such a great episode, everyone!
Joss Whedon on strong women
Heading back home after seeing Captain Phillips at the flicks.
Not too shabby.
I’m not smooth like butta though.
The new Captain America trailer looks pretty good.
Yeah Im rather excited for Marvel Phase 2. I know a lot of people didn’t like Iron Man 3 (which I dont understand why).
I have to go on record as really enjoying Cap 1, yeah you could pull apart some of it’s logic, but as a comic book movie I think it stayed true to that style of story telling. My example of a bad superhero movie would be the second Fantastic Four. The edition of Rob and Larry could only have elevated it.
I think it would require a Rob Schneider or Larry the Cable for it be worse than the first one.
Get er done!

Ugh. Seether covered Veruca Salt’s Seether. Not only did they completely miss the fucking point of the song, but it is also terrible. Yuck.
WTF were they trying to be meta or something?
PLUS there’s no one names ‘Louise” in Seether.
I hate Seether.
We didn’t learn that the Seether was Louise until “Volcano Girls.”
Oh sorry. The information has been there for 16 years instead of 18. I’ll forgive Seether for overlooking it ;P
I thought it was always obvious she was talking about herself. Volcano Girls just confirmed it.
You just cram her back in your mouth.
Oh that would have been the least I’d have done to her back in the day… ow.
Tegan & Sara’s new album on sale for $4.
Well worth the price
Yes it is.

Although the indie douche in me cringes seeing them perform with the likes of Katy Perry and Taylor Swift…
Now now, if KP licks popsicles then I know Lo would be a Good Humor man.
Off to find some alka seltzer.
Just for grins, I just went to http://www.healthcare.gov to witness the “horror” that I hear reported on the news, first hand.
The site came right up. I poked around in it with no “glitches”. I tried the quick insurance calculator, where by you give them a zip code and your age and location and they whip out 10 plans to give you some idea of what you might pay. As near as I can tell it worked flawlessly.
So I hit the “register” button. That took a little while to open up but really not even quite as long as it takes Netflix to load on my TiVo.
That’s as far as I went as I already have insurance and didn’t want to accidentally buy more.
Maybe the problem is deeper into the process but if there was a problem, I did not see it.
Anyone else try it to see how broken it was?
I clicked the link and just saw a picture of Karl Marx.
I got Groucho.
I got a rock.
I hear that can be cleared up with anti-biotics these days.
Supposedly (and for all I know it is fixed already) the rate calculator was deeply flawed in accurately estimating the actual rates.
The news showed they only had two age brackets in the flawed version, instead of asking for your specific age. Which way was it when you checked it out?
The “Quick quote” I used did only have two brackets (49 and below, 50 and above) but it clearly stated that this was just to give you a very ball park idea of what you might be looking at. So I can’t see that as “broken”. After all, those two brackets do cover everyone.
Have to admit that after all the bad press and John Stewert just wailing on it for days now … I was really expecting to see the Hindenburg when I went to the site. At the least thought I’d get an error page. Boring.
Lots to do today. Hubby expected home early.
Best commercial ever
Cut a hole in the box
If you are making a pipe bomb I’m telling mam.
Oh mam’ll get something in the box. Its no bomb, but its likely to go off.
Gender gaps large and small:
Fascinating topic, really. In some ways, some areas, some departments, women have already leapfrogged men. In other places, fields, areas, the landscape is still ruled by cavemen with clubs.
And at left hunchback its Org!
I’m so very confused.
Oh never mind. I figured it out. The site kept playing the shows out of order, but apparently this whole laptop is out of order.
Also, there’s some sort of Pixie game.
am I too late to get in on that? I think we’re supposed to post Facebook page fans: uhhh 100
and Jack’s friends… which without looking I’m fairly certain is more than me.. maybe 642
I’m gonna go see how way off I am now.
Yes! Maybe Pixie can re-explain the rules to us later today.
Wow, how incredibly fucked up. This is a case where the cavemen still reign supreme, sadly.
And cavewomen. Fucked up to the max
Heard an interesting story on this that indicated women had closed the employment gap (in the US) but not the pay gap. Seems this is becoming a new cost cutting tactic. Instead of raising women’s pay to equal male counterparts … companies were hiring more women instead of men specifically because they could get away with paying them less.
So … everybody wins!
(disclaimer: In this scenario the subset “everybody”, only includes stockholders and board members.)
Wait … this comment was supposed to go with the “gender gap” discussion up above.
Oh bullocks, I fail the forums. 🙁
$1. I bid $1 Drew.
Even supports the Spectrum.. Hot damn!
The article makes a big deal about the new tool, but where is the tool exactly? I can’t seem to find a link to the browser version?
Just click on a computer name to get started.
Runs like a dog on my netbook, so they weren’t lying about needing a fast computer.
Actually that’s a dumb statement, on the whole dogs can run quite fast.
Can I have at least 6 more hours in today, please?!
If I knew you were coming, I would have ducked…
No cake? sniff
Can animals (cats, dogs and the like) belch?
Dogs certainly can.
WTF, Tornado ditto?
He’s a crafty SOB that Tornado!
Yes, or it’s about time my stupid players stopped getting injured and got some points. 😀
To clarify CJ’s question from earlier today…
Pixie’s (dumb) game is to guess, without going over the actual number, how many fans the Fans of Jack Mangan’s Deadpan Facebook Group Page has.
AND NO CHEATING!
Crap joke for this Saturday morning:
A motorway walks into a pub. He goes up to the bar and orders himself a drink. He has just sat down when in walks a strip of tarmac. The motorway sees the tarmac, starts to panic and jumps behind the bar. “What are you afraid of?” says the barman, “You’re a six lane motorway and he’s just a piece of tarmac.” The motorway replies, “You don’t know him like I do. He’s a cyclepath.”
if we ignore this joke will it just go away?
Some of those were pretty funny.
Ticket booked for To see Enders Game., my memories of the book are dim.
Not the disaster I was expecting.
Stupid Lundquist will probably make me miss any goalie points I got this week.
Could be worse. You could be a the bottom of the pool like me. I’m sure all those who cursed me for taking players they wanted during the draft are now glad they dodged that bullet. 😉
*cough* Youre still beating me this week *cough*
Know what I hate? When I send someone an email and sign off with my name, and they reply with “Hi Ryan”. Honestly, I didn’t have a type o. Silly people.
“I didn’t have a type o”
Licking your lips JJ?
*hides behind cape*
Probably is spoiler-iffic. Watch a video of Breaking Bad series told through figure skating.
I’m very proud of my spelling bee champ today!
“W – o – o – T Woot”
Well Dracula was nicely bonkers.
We are guilty pleasure intrigued.
Time to wind the old fashioned clocks back an hour.
Not until November 3.
Oi Guvnah! Time to spit spat the ol’ shackle scene eh?
If you could just translate that into English that would be fine and dandy.
Did I do that wrong?
Donna Summer is playing on the TV causing school disco flashbacks.
Next youll be getting ditto flashbacks…
John Lennon singing Imagine.
I hated that song when it was released.
10cc is playing now, some of the band have impressive moustaches, well ok one of them has.
Ah Tubeway Army, Gary Numan before his big hit that adorned those American Express ads.
Chronologically this may not be the correct sequence.
Talking of Hate, Karma Chameleon by Culture Club.
But Two Tribes by FGTH restores the equilibrium.
Kylie’s first hit, The word ‘lucky ‘ needs some culling.
..and now music to slash your wrists too, the short haired Irish woman sings dreary line no other.
Oh gawd it’s the Spice Girls.
Still I had a certain fondness for Mel C.
The weird video by a now famous director the the fat boy slim track
My life is brilliant.
Ah Bank goes sings Crazy.
The lass from Battleship sings Umbrella and not a Gene Kelly in sight.
007 not invited.
That’s it, this is the future signing off.
Why were you subjected to Mellow Gold today?
BBC4 programme playing No.1 records over the years.
I think this guy is just deliberately wasting everyone’s time:
It’s going to be another nail-biting hockey week. Actually, it’s a bit fun this way. 😀
To the wire!! Ah good stuff
Hello for the cold and snowy north, deadpan.
Yo Lo! New Canadian $5 and $10 comes out on November 7th. You still want a five? Did anyone else want a bill? They’re quite pretty.
I do. Is there just one pattern?
Yup. Just the space theme.
Make sure to email me your new address and I’ll send it out as soon as I get my hands on one.
Watched Pacific Rim yesterday. It was fun.
Silly Steam put Saints Row IV on sale for 50% off yesterday. Now, I’m going to play said game. 😉
That showed Steam!!!!
..and Lou Reed has died:
Thought he was older than that.
R.I.P. Lou Reed. He made some magic in his day.
A question for any of you crafty Deadpanites …
If you are painting cloth to look like stone, would you start with the darkest shade as your base coat and then add the lighter shades to create hi/lo lites … or would you do it the other way around – start light and add shadow?
BTW: This has nothing to do with Mr. Reed and his passing.
It just decided to join that thread.
Don’t listen to me, because I know nothing about this.
I think you should start dark.
I guess this is staying to the south, but still keep yourself safe on that little island there, Van.
Looking at the Met Office predictions looks like North East will have it pretty easy.
Goodnight Margaret Lebowski shard.
Your crap joke for the day:
Be careful what you buy online. Check the seller out very carefully.
I’ve just spent £230 on a penis enlarger, and the bastard’s sent me a magnifying glass!!!! The only instruction that came with it was do not use in sunlight…..
There is way too much snow on the ground.
OMG AZ Derby Dames… get off the schnide already!!!
That being said, congrats on beating Jack and I back to back! Now, you must watch your back…
We still have almost as many wins as the real NJ Devils.
Some of them don’t have sound.
Cushing = magical
Yes he certainly was.
Specifically in Jack’s above link
Oh he was magical in a metaphysical sense that goes way beyond Jack’s link.
Well, this bunny has to head out into the cold and snowy weather to pick up her car. Putting on snow tires. Fun.
I don’t know if this helps the cause of any DOTFRWCD characters. . .
If all else fails send fish:
Silly service people. The snow tires are on the car but they hadn’t done the winter service stuff yet (oil change, etc). I put on my snow boots and coat and walked over there for nothing.

The PMRC’s “Filthy Fifteen” from 1985:
Your graphical crap joke:
We’ve devolved into Swedish?
Tsk Tsk JJ, I’m surprised you didn’t what I had done straight away.
There, one car ready for winter, two more to go.
Go ahead.. listen to the hook. Try and get it out of your head…
My breaking point was 1:27.
Puke the rainbow? 😉
Today’s retro game was Scramble.
I suck worse at Scramble today than I did the 80’s.
Thanks, Yahoo Fantasy NHL League, interface, stupid fucking bullshit reseting of lines, now cant even vent in Message Boards, crap!
We lost out on points today because of you.
Goodnight :Star Trek for the 800th time:
I’m seriously considering not renewing my Xbox live subscription this year.
MS seems to have dropped the ball with the new generation of consoles.
I ended up canceling my Xbox One preorder. Between the PC (world of tanks is their current favorite) and the iPads, they haven’t touched the Xbox we have now in months. Looking at the games coming out, while pretty, don’t compel me. Especially since so many of them look like they are being developed and released for the current Xbox/Playstation hardware.
My daughter is glued to her iPad and my son plays on the PC almost exclusively. He is still pestering me about the XBOX One, but like Ed I don’t see any big moves forward this year in terms of new games. The PS4 looks interesting, but I don’t know. The money might be better spent upgrading the PC’s.
I’ve been playing mostly on the Vita lately. The PS4 sounds interesting since all games will support remote play on the Vita.
The concert poster is not dead.

Is that a newly drafted hockey player?

The coal and fuel oil political cartoon is quite a bit disturbing.

Thank you, Ohio State! This was GREAT FUN!

My time is a piece of wax that’s fallin’ on a termite that’s chokin’ on the splinters.
That goddamn song just brings me back to a better time. A simpler time…
I was King of the World then.
(well, in a “Titanic” sort of way. Then the damn icebergs always show up)
Well, I’m a driver, I’m a winner.
Things are gonna change, I can feel it.
You know, Queens of the Stone Age’s record “Songs for the Deaf” is a freaking amazing listen, but its also pretty exhausting for only 63 minutes
That just ended!!!!!!!!!!
I really love that band.
And fabulous album.
Did you listen to WTF? with Josh?!?!?!?! Great stuff.
I like their first 3 albums tremendously, but I havent cared for the past couple albums. I do want to hear their brand new one tho.
I love the shit out of Kyuss, however. Love…the shit… out of
I did! I’d read about him being homophobic a few years ago, so was delighted to hear that he isn’t. He’s purty.
Fun fact! His wife is Brody Dalle of The Distillers fame. She left her previous husband (who was the lead singer of Rancid at the time) for him.
As the bands turn!
Apothecary’s Weight! Kyuss were a bit more simplistic than QotSA, but still excellent.
Simplistic in song structure, to be sure. But I still defy any band to emulate the sheer sonic fury that band unleashed.
I was talking to Peachy Peach about kissy kiss
The future. If you suffer from tl;dr, there’s a video at the bottom. I watched with no sound.
While I dig it in a Spherical Tomi kind of way – in the real world, I can see douchebag day traders wandering along the sidewalk waving and polking and annoying everyone around them poking at buttons in the air that no one else can see.
We did the 13th Floor haunted house over in Rhett’s neighborhood tonight. Well done, teenagers in zombie makeup! Very impressive set.
Was this a commercial venture or just a thing the teens decided to do?
No, it’s a commercially run thing with an admission price. They’ve taken over a shuttered big box location and filled the place with a bunch of different set pieces, with the wreckage of a small plane, old cars, cathedral sets, impossible rooms, etc., with professionally costumed ghouls and creepies lurking everywhere. Fun, but probably a bit too scary for younguns.
Some of those seemed reasonable enough. Others….want to make we weep for our future.
An interesting idea that this study raises …
If 28 million house cats are killing a small rodent or bird twice a week and these creatures don’t seem to be in any danger of extinction … would we be be overrun with vermin were it not for these cats?
Got proof that species of birds and rodents aren’t facing extinction?
Nope. I also got no proof of exactly what species are being killed.
I merely paused to think of the extra 2.9 billion (based on the mentioned number/frequency of cat kills) birds and or small mammals a year that would be breeding and competing for food supplies.
2.9 billion(+). A year.
Dead … or alive and multiplying. Either way that seems a “made for SciFi Channel” large number of critters.

Jesus ditto, Seether doing “Seether” if goddamn awful. Theyre not even trying.
/comment about a comment made weeks ago.
You finally heard it? Yeah. It is so horrible, it is unbelievable. Not that I think Seether (band) is all that good, but still.
Yeah I was avoiding it properly til curiosity killed this cat.
Back in 2012 during Phoenix Comicon and after the Kings eliminated the Coyotes in its pursuit of the Stanley Cup, Wil showed up to his session like this https://i.imgur.com/p8iUq.jpg and then ask the Phoenix crowd if it was true that Phoenix golf courses had coyotes on them. Well, with the Coyotes thorough beat down on the Kings last night, I decided to take Wil’s advice from his blog and “go and make something.” Here it is: http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j126/rhettro1/Wil-YotesFan_zps078759d1.jpg
And I got a reply from the man himself on Twitter. “Wil SCREAMton @wilw
@Rhettro ahahahahah! Well done. I didn’t see the game because I was at a concert. Sounds like I didn’t miss anything I wanted to see.”
Approved! (although the Yotes still need to win a full playoff series against the Kings)
Yes they do. I would say both teams would be lucky not to get eaten by Sharks this season.
Ugh. Not happy about this. Of course it probably won’t go anywhere.
DO you want this movie to even happen?
God no. The Japanese live-action version was good, but didn’t do the series justice. The new anime reboot is really, really good.
Really wanna see new series
x2. And the live action film.
Right Pan I’m off to see Thor 2 at the flicks.
They should have combined it with a zany 60s comedy and called it “Thor 2: It’s a Dark, Dark, Dark, Dark World”
Showing your age there Jack.
A fun popcorn movie as they say.
Oh and there is a sequence at the end.
In fact it appears there are two, I missed the second one.
CP: Chapter 2 – The Joy Formidable
fuck. its good.

Yeah. As great as Wolf’s Law is, The Big Roar is their shining masterpiece.
Agreed, but it would be hard to surpass at this point.

The weather is really trying to bring me down.
It hasn’t rained significantly, around here, for 6 weeks. Now the forecast is for storms and high winds tomorrow from about 4pm until 10pm. Then no rain again in the foreseeable future.
