Good Luck, you’ll need it…
I’m swoozy at the sight of an early deadpan episode.
Morning Pan, games I’ve bought and haven’t opened:
Diablo 2(yeah still haven’t got round to that)
Full Spectrum Warrior on the original Xbox
Excalibur King Arthur Advanced Chess Game (a chessboard with a computer built in)
Too many shiney things in life…
I’ve never seen an episode of Gilligan’s Island.
Congratulations on being the nipple queen TEB.
Oh bollox, that was a DP spoiler.
Earliest known recording of computer generated music:
There’s a link on the news story so you can hear the computer performance.
Okay, that’s enough crap from me, off to work.
weee early morning
It’s usually a good idea….um, what?
It’s seven AM, do you know where you are yet 🙂
an even dozen!
Where ever you go, there you are!
Nothing wrong with a 4:19AM fuck…
Are we still on the “Morning Weiner” discussion?
Hopefully not, it’s afternoon here.
Hopefully you all knew where you were when you woke up!
This seams like an awful lot of animation effort just to get a goal
Take a look at the cool desk on the bottom of this page. I want one!
Check out the first video
sometimes that’s how I feel about my cell phone
Couldn’t see a price, but looks expensive.
Jack, it was an excellent episode!
Just listened to the episode: All bow down and hail my greatness! (I figure I have a better chance of this then actually claiming my prize 🙂 )
Yes Jack, there is a Denny’s in Calgary, although I think there is only the one. The equivalent here in Calgary would be Humpty’s.
Next time on Deadpan:
Jack takes the Nipple Queen out for her prize at Humpty’s.
All hail the Nipple Queen!
Jack be nimble,
Jack be Swift?
Greasy Jelly Bean Taint?

So, I liked Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Signs and even the Villageâ€¦
â€¦but The Happening was god-awful.
It wasnâ€™t Wahlbergâ€™s fault either.
It was San Andreas’ fault.
Pretty good summary of Firefox 3:
Woot. Someone had the same Matrix quote idea I did! 🙂
Whip it Cool!
lmao. I love the typo quote, Jack!
Even if I couldn’t call in, I still had some good quotes. 🙂
I coulda been a contender!
All hail TEB!
Jack: I don’t remember where you got that Plan 9 remix, but is there a way I can get it? I really like it!
“Enough is enough!”
“A 55 pound sack of cement fell from the sky through the roof of a Moscow home last week. It was dropped by a Russian air force plane that was seeding clouds for weather control. The cement was supposed to have been pulverized into powder that’s released into clouds along with silver iodide and liquid nitrogen to force rain.”
That’s a nice write up on FF3. I must confess, I’m not sure I understand what the purpose is of tagging my bookmarks, though.
It’s an alternative way of searching/querying your bookmarks. You can hierarchically organize your bookmarks into folders, but sometimes you lose information that way. With tags, you can associate extra information.
Upper level of house now vacuumed. Will have to wait until my Boo gets out of bed before I can do the lower level.
Re: Cement artical – what is moral damages? I understand mental suffering.
Does this mean, while before he wouldn’t have ogled or fondled a naked… anything, now he will because his morals have been damaged?
PS: All hail me 🙂
Just installed FF3. Slightly different tool bar look, but otherwise feels pretty much the same. Will have to try out some of the new features… eventually.

TEB: It’s not set in stone. 😉
Is someone who steals concrete a hardened criminal?
Would it be a hardship if I asked for a boat built out of concrete?
Maybe they took the fact the cement was crushed for granite…
Ok, I’m done now
It’s time to pour over my work.

It could be argued that you should wake up and not know where you are at least once in your life.
It’s still on my todo list.
Van: It’s not that fun.
ditto/Van: the waking up part is not that fun, PLUS you don’t remember what you did, so where’s the fun in that?
Actually, it’s happened to me sober. I was traveling a lot at the time, and woke up in a hotel completely confused and a bit panicky about where I was. Waking up that way is not fun at all.
Well memory can come back later.
But I’ve never had the memory blackout with booze, I start feeling like I’m going to puke way before that can happen.
So any humilating actions on my part come back to haunt me the next day.
Not that I’m in the habit of making a fool out myself..but you know.
Well, I have food in my tummy, which is good. My Boo is in the shower so I was able to finish the vacuuming, which is also good. Now to do some work, which is bad.

An acquaintance from my grad school days made CNN today:
A JC and portal reference:
What’s the story about EssBee? I can’t play the video on my Eee PC.
She’s a WNBA (women’s US pro basketball) player who is playing on the Russian team for the Olympics. People here are all up in arms “she’s a defector!” about it. Her position is that she’s old for a pro athlete (31) and wasn’t invited to play on the U.S. team. Since it’s been her dream to be an Olympic athlete, and since she has dual Russian citizenship because she plays pro bball there in the summers, she’s playing for Russia.
The link didn’t work for me either. But I think it’s good on her. You go where the dream takes you.

Well apart from letting Pros into the Olympics at all.
But money greases a lot of hands.
I have to agree Van. As much as I enjoy NHL hockey. I found I enjoyed Olympic hockey less once they allowed NHL players to participate.
That being said, however, in this case, since they do allow pros, she might as well follow that dream.

Any other Michael Moorcock’s you may know are of course impostors.

Cool. My daughter is a huge MM fan. I’ve sent the link to her
I’ve been working 10-14 hour days for the past month. I really hope I can wrap it up tonight so I can spend tomorrow at my ACS Relay Event.
Ouch to the long hours. Sorry. I just looked at my time and added two hours.
Now, to make you feel better, I’ve pretty much wrapped it up here.
It’s only 4pm here. 🙁
ditto needs a break.
A change is as good as a rest.
Eating a pineapple cake (more of a cookie) from Taiwan.
Not the horror I’d expected. Actually pretty tasty.
(Was that a useless tweet?)
Jack, I for one am fascinated by the Taiwanese cake/cookie.
I am currently drinking a cup of Stash peppermint tea and listening to The Velvet Underground while I summarize a conference call for Evil, Inc. bosses.
I’m having a very unusual tea: Orange Ginger Mint. It’s actually pretty good.
I am not having anything at the moment, but I have a powerful desire to take a nap. ZZZzzzzz…
Typo truck or overdrive would be me written correctly?
And Dubshack was never heard from again…
Not because of the teasing Dubshack for cheating Dubshack in our last SurveyMonkey poll Dubshack?
Hey Ed from Texas…
thank you for your kind words. I was really expecting more fallout over choices for Joust/frogger… need to make more stuff for deadpan. I got plans for Mr. Mangan.
Cool, Trucker. Look fwd to it.
My fingers smell funny
Well, look where you are keeping them! 😉
This is a pretty kewl whip mashup:
Requiem for a Day Off
Damn you WP. How dare you block that!
Requiem for a Day Off
Morning Pan, today I brave the perils of public transport so I can view some Pre-Raphaelite paintings.
So I have to ask why use tiny.cc rather than tinyurl.com when it adds an extra step to the link you’ve posted?
DUMB ASS MOMENT!
I’ve gone on travel and forgotten my suitcase.
“How can that be?” you might ask.
I’m asking that as well.
It was a last minute sort of thing. I was scrambling to get equipment in the car, get directions (and get them printed), get packed, pack a cooler and get out of town before the impending rush-hour traffic.
Well … I beat the traffic alright. Somewhere in a quite, darkened house … my tooth brush and a neatly folded, fresh change of clothing are mocking me.
I guess I’ll be going shopping today.
Oh, almost forgot. KUDO’s on the episode Mr Mangan.
Now on with my misadventure.
Uh oh, naked JOe!
Just swinging in the wind
He’s swinging in the wind
What am I seein’?
JOe’s nekid again!
And I think I’ve finally achieved a different kind of freedom on my work project!
What will I do with my new found sanity?
Who needs it?
Good for you, ditto!
(on the sanity, not the *headdesk*)
Huh? Where am I?
PS: Thanks, EssBee.
Jeremy, did you catch this in this week’s Village Voice?
Straight Guys Finding a Home in Gay Sports Leagues
“Science just fucking hates you so much, sometimes it’s like a fire in science’s heart.”
Where the hell did that come from?
This is pretty funny:
Dammit! xkcd shouldn’t know me!
Yeah, I loved that pic!
I loved all 3 links, guys!
Well, I’m heading out to my ACS Relay for Life event. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
See you tomorrow!
I hope that Relay Event kicks butt, ditto!
Anyone else doing anything interesting this weekend?
I’m thinking of getting my legs waxed.
Jack, we’re going to my folks’ to celebrate a late Father’s Day and my mom’s birthday. I hear dad’s frying a turkey!
Thanks EssBee. That is a pretty insightful article and is well in line with my reasons for joining and staying on my team.
Leeds was a work in progress maze.
Whole section of the art gallery containing the Pre-Raphaelite paintings was shut for work on a new exhibition.
Note to self, check gallery’s website before travelling.
Remembered a dumbass memory and than forgot about it an hour later…sigh.
Words fail me:
This might be the gayest Friday ever.
I doubt that, Dub.
Van, that’s horrible.
Another nugget from Scalzi on marriage today:
I prefer Pepsi to Coco Cola.
I’ll seek professional on Monday.
In soccer news Turkey has just beaten Croatia in a penalty shootout.
Van you should’ve led a chant of “I want my Millais! I want my Millais!”
*Notes blank looks*
What, hasn’t everyone studied the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood?
The Turks are the new Greeks…. nobody thought they’d do anything before the tournament and they are managing to sneak through…
Spain are gonna win it though… (says the Liverpool fan 😉 )
JB: How was the staycation? I know your family was sick — did you have any fun?
Raphael was the one with the red bandana and the 2 sai, right?
I find the concept of a woman having the head of her murdered lover in a pot in her bedroom a bit of turn off.
Maybe TO would disagree.
*continued misadventures of justaJ0e*
Got out to my car this morning and MY LISCENSE PLATE HAD BEEN STOLEN!
It’s just Karma paying me back for all those good deeds I’ve done.
Now I am off, to let Karma find some other ways to ream me.
(30 frame dissolve to the front gates of a Defense Department facility. Camera pulls wide as a black van comes racing into frame – crashes through the gate, across the front walk and barrels through the doors of the facility. justaJ0e’s liscenes tag is on the back of the van and is clearly visable to the security cameras.
Cut to extreme wide shot of facility as it explodes.
Music from the film “Brazil” begins to play)
I have of course condemned my self to a special place in hell for Englishman using the word Soccer instead of football.
It’s been nice, EssBee, We had all three of Fox’s grandparents over on Father’s Day, lots of sandbox over the course of the week, a Twins game on Tuesday night (Twins win over hapless Nationals in interleague play). Despite the lovely weather a fair amount of indoor play also, as allergy tends to worsen symptoms for Darcy & Fox. I managed to not catch the cold, and also have not shaven since last Friday.
iPod is not plugged in – but the song currently stuck in my head:
We Know Where You Sleep – The pAper chAse
— OK, outta here.
You know I was just about to post on here that this day couldn’t get any gayer if someone handed me a picture of Kevin Bacon and Patrick Swayze dressed like pirates and having sex with each other.
But then I discovered we’d blown a head gasket on our Samurai. So now I’m stuck with the car where I’ve replaced the drivers side window with a towel, and my wife gets to drive to work with a case of oil in the passenger seat every day.
So now today is more like someone inserted a soccer ball into my anus.
No I take that back.
It’s more like someone has inserted SoccerGirl into my anus.
June 21st, the day with the longest amount of daylight hours for the year in the Northern Hemisphere.
After today it’s all downhill to winter.
This has been your informationyoualreadyknow newsflash.
Happy Saturday, Pan!
Watched Donnie Darko last night. I liked it, but didn’t entirely get it. I wish Netflix sent the bonus material discs with the main movie discs — I think the special features on that one might have been interesting.
I’m headed out of town for a quick overnight drive to see my parents. Hope you all have a good weekend!
Morning Pan. Retrieved the daughter from camp yesterday. She had a great week. This will be a weekend of recovery.
Naturally, I start of by getting caught up on Colbert. This is one of the funniest segments he’s ever done. My fellow 30somethings should greatly enjoy this.
And, of course, the ending:
Me thinks Cookie Monster is going to need to eat some serious fiber after that one.
An idea for a b-movie monster though.
Morning Pan! Finished Mass Effect last night. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
EssBee- Understanding Donnie Darko really requires multiple viewings. And the directors cut.
But mainly just the directors cut. They added this whole chapter thing with short passages from the book and it explained a great deal. Its a lot like what they did with Southland Tales, except it actually worked in Donnie Darko’s case. There’s a lot less going on in that movie.
Dub, since you’re on line… Go to last weeks posts. I have some things to say about you hating us Cdns.
In the words of Stephen Lautens (http://tinyurl.com/4tj22k)
“My philosophy is, if you don’t believe in gay marriage, then don’t marry someone of the same sex. It’s not like it’s mandatory. ”
I think I like that quote 🙂
Currently listening to The Chillcast episode 117.
All brazillian muzak..
Russia just beat Holland in the Euro 2008, Adam Curry will be pissed.
Maybe he got pissed while watching the match…
A/C dead in truck… I wish it was Deadpan… it would still be fucking hot but at least it would be funny.
That doesn’t sound good at all, Trucker. That brain working overdrive on content and phone calls musta pushed it beyond capacity 🙂
The wife and I watched “Jumper” today while doing some chores. Southland Tales was more coherent.
Jumper had such potential, yet was so poorly executed. I’ve never read the book, so I don’t know if the source material is any better…..though it’s hard to imagine it could be worse.
I think I’ve just about decided that Firefox 3 + del.icio.us = web browsing nirvana. Your mileage may vary.
I haven’t got round to playing with del.icio.us
“Get Smart” was actually worth the ticket. Very fun, and you need not have seen the original series to enjoy it. There were really only a few in-jokes with the original…
checking in …
Surprised to see that no one followed up Trucker’s unfortunate news with the comment …
You’re not all going and getting tasteful are you?
Cold ham and pineapple pizza…mmmmmmmmmm!
Ed I would like to think that it’s my brain working in overdrive. It’s something idea what I should be writing.
Can we get a rimshot for Justa Joe.
They’re sharing a pod cast called deadpan but it’s better deadpanning alone.
George Carlin went to school with my dad and uncles in The Bronx.
Just saw that on the news this morning.
In his honor: SHIT! PISS! FUCK! CUNT! COCKSUCKER! MOTHERFUCKER (four notes away)! TITS!
Thanks for the link, Ed. I love George.
I remember listening to his comedy albums in the 70s.
🙁 from me too.

I mean the Christian apocalypse went so well in 1999/2000…
Wow. High-tech crack-pottery ensues.
Dubshack doesn’t give a shit.
Rhettro does and was on the pot just this morning.
A great indie album gets reissued: Liz Phair’s “Exile in Guyville”
If they had just nicknamed the Higgs boson ‘slippery sid’ instead of ‘The God Particle’ the world would be a safer place.
Naw, paranoid maniacs would still find some way to tout it as the end of the world. I remember the wingnuts coming out back in 84? claiming the planetary alignment was going to rip the earth to pieces.
“Morons! Your bus is leaving!”
“Finished with my woman cause she couldn’t help me with my mind
People think Im insane because I am browning all the time
All day long I think of things but nothing seems to satisfy
Think Ill lose my mind if I don’t find something to pacify”
“I’m sick and tired of hearing things
from uptight, short-sighted, narrow-minded hypocrites.
All i want is the truth.
Just give me some truth.”
“I fall down just to give you a thrill
Prop me up with another pill
If I should fail, if I should fold
I nailed my faith to the sticking pole”
I think you’ll find truth over in the cosmetics department.
Or was it on the Depends aisle? I can never remember.
Shouldn’t that be the cosmic department?
Make a joke and I will sigh and you will laugh and I will cry
Happiness I cannot feel and love to me is so unreal
“Make a joke and I will sigh and you will laugh and I will cry”
Sounds like an average day on the Dead Pan. LOL
ditto: Awesome! I love Exile.
Well, one man’s deadpan is everyone’s deadpan.
That’s rather Platonic, Ed. 😉
Far too much metal in those.
Another awesome Scalzi post:
There’s no such thing as “too much metal.”
Actually Rhett — there is.
But hey, it’s always nice to find good reviews:
Nice review Jack. Congratz.
Yea, Manowar. LOL
Beam Me Up for Jack’s story
Needed something to make the last 2 hours of this workday bearable.
Must resist adding another podcast feed..m/u/s/t/r/e/s/i/s/t…
â€œIâ€™m tired of this back-slapping â€˜Isnâ€™t humanity neat?â€™ bullshit. Weâ€™re a virus with shoes, okay? Thatâ€™s all we are.

So now playing on the TV is David Hasslehof playing Nick Fury…the horror, the horror.
Look away, Van!
Over the weekend, we saw 3 DVDs: Untraceable, National Treasure, and National Treasure 2.
Untraceable was horrific. Really and truly, don’t watch it.
The National Treasure movies were fun — I’d seen them both before.
We’re now watching Eureka on DVD, trying to get caught up.
ditto – nice use of the Sam Phillips
Rhett – Re: Thereâ€™s no such thing as â€œtoo much metal.â€
I would think that depends on the delivery system.
Jack – we’re not worthy.
Is Manowar the exception that proves the rule?
No I really don’t know what that means either.
That’s a big 10-4, justa J0e, except for the “not worthy” malarkey.
What’s been your 20 lately, over?
Thanks guys. Of all my crap, that one might be my favorite.
So ok ok – if you haven’t heard “Defender” by Manowar, feat. Orson Welles’ vocal talents (yep), then you must. You must devote 6 minutes to this. It is possibly the most perfect of all 80s metal cheese. Complete with unbearably superhokey album cover
Well with that, why not some more punishment? http://youtube.com/watch?v=cG4eBwlOwpw
Still more you say? Can a invented cartoon metal band push the boundaries a little? Yes. Yes it can. LOL
No more, pppllllllleeeeeeeeaaaasssssseeeee…my brain is melting.
Fight proud, my son.
You’re the Defender. . . . God. . . . has sent. . .
Bunny has caught something really nasty so don’t expect to see much of her the next few days. I plan on spending as much time as possible under the covers of a nice warm bed.
Get well soon TEB.
So after being the given the once over for genetic sampling, I have proof that all I’m fit for is the glue factory.
Alas it seems homophobia is alive and well in the UK:
I don’t know, Van. I found that ad more tongue-in-cheek than anything.
Get well soon, TEB.
Van, that article is interesting in light of the world thinking about George Carlin this week.
Children will be damaged by the sight of two men kissing!
Children will be damaged by the sound of words that we don’t like!
Hope you feel better soon, TEB!
When I look at the picture, I’m certainly not thinking Wiimote.
Seems like a natural progression for the Wiimote. I imagine it will get some sort of “rumble” feature too.
I was thinking the same thing, Rhettro. 😉
*buying a Wiimote*
Heh. “Sex is for Fags!”
Totally funneh! There is a sister site too:
Very funny, JfS!
Maybe I’ll check those links when I’m not at work. LOL
Installed Firefox 3 last night and I am extremely pleased. Quite an improvement in speed and features from 2.
Same here, Rhett.
I suppose I should get FF3 one of these days.
So I actually had a drink with Evo Terra last night at the Four Peaks brewery. That’s about all there is to this story. I hadn’t seen him since last year.
Interesting. I emailed him a couple of weeks ago and he mentioned the need to share a beer sometime. As it turns out, my kids are visiting the grandparents in Kansas until July 8th and Teresa is flying out to Kansas July 2nd to spend the holiday with them. So I’ll be free for much debauchery over the 4th of July. 🙂 Perhaps I should get a beer with Evo.
I’ve been enjoying my new guitar amp, but it lacks the reverb function of my old digital one. Having done a little research, I’m really digging the sound samples of the Line 6 Verbzilla. Sound clips available here:http://tinyurl.com/4oovjm
Problem is, everyone is out of stock and it’s backordered until July 21st. 🙁
I may try the Scottsdale Guitar Center to on the off chance they have one. Or I could call first. LOL
Okay what are the added features of FF3?
I obviously don’t use a browser to it’s full potential, as apart from the change in the look or of FF3, I’m not noticing any big differences to FF2.
I used FF3 for a grand total of 15 minutes last night, so I’m not familiar with all the new features. LOL But speed comes first to mind. It loads pages a lot faster than FF2 and feels snappier over all. If you type the URL in the address window FF3 will start to guess what address you want and start displaying choices, but beyound just the address, it displays the site name as well. There’s a new tab for most visited sites that is pretty cool. Those are the features I noticed.
Yeah I noticed that, just wasn’t that impressed.
I’ll go and flog myself later for penance.
I guess it’s a case of different keystrokes for different folks.
Well it’s still better than IE7 for most things.
I actually preferred IE7 to FF2, but with the speed improvements in FF3, it’s my top choice now.
I also just downloaded Songbird. Its pretty sweet. I am actually posting from it right now. When you go to a site with music links it shows a list at the bottom of all of them, and download buttons.
I dig it.

It’s amazing that retail DVD rental places are still hanging on. Does anyone still go out to the video store for a movie?
Fly Away (acoustic) – Lenny Kravitz
Jack – I went to my rental place (Showtime Video) to get Southland Tales and it had been so long since I’d been there that they wouldn’t let me take a movie out until I filled out a new membership card. It looked like they were surviving mainly on game rentals.
Killing the Blues – Robert Plant and Alison Kraus
You know it’s weird, come to think of it. Ever since the move to AZ and the switch to Netflix, I haven’t rented a single DVD from Blockbuster etc. I kind of miss it in a way. Browsing DVDs like books in a library gives a sort of viseral connection to the media.
Speaking of browsing, this is really cool for books:
Actually, we have Blockbuster’s online plan and we get to turn in our from-the-mail movies at the store to get free in store rentals. So, we’re stopping buy about once a week or so.
But, Eraserhead remains at the top of my queue and has been there waiting for fulfillment for three months at least.
Speaking of bad hair. . .
I so do not miss NJ:
Land of the Big Hair.
Hey that’s not cool posting a link to a Goatse without any prior warning.
That link is actually worksafe, just unsafe for our species.
He looks like Anthony Soprano after a bad scare.
Jack – You’ll be happy to know that, according to my local library, the government has placed the Deadpan “off limits”.
This is the message I got while trying to access the Deadpan from my local public Library today. GITMO here we come!

Helmet party? Like this?
I missed them first time around, but I’ve been enjoying Phil Rossi’s vignettes that he has been reposting:
Oh and if you need to be distracted from a lack of DP girls, ZP reviews MGS4:
He disses the game mightily.
DP girls? Oh Dead Pan. LOL
Did someone say girls?
I’m afraid of opening the helmet party link at Evil, Inc. Have to save it for later!
I think Rhettro is still stuck on DP. 😉
Double Pretty! LOL

Ok, boys. I know I’m a big ‘mo and everything, so this is stereotypical of me. But this is funny. Check out this Ellen (yes, yes, ha ha) clip:
I can’t keep up with what is going on.
I think my heart just must be slowing down
Among the human beings – in their designer jeans.
Am I the only one who hears the screams ?
and strangled cries, of lawyers in love.

Ugh!! Stressfull and creepy!! Well done, didn’t make it cheesy at all, just fucked up.
There’s a hole in my bucket..
“They stop you for having a little listerine…”
Dear Liza, Dear Liza
So think I will seeing this film on Friday:
Will probably check out Wanted on Sunday. I flicked through the graphic novel the movie is based on at Borders on Tuesday, not my cup of tea.
There’s a hole in my bucket, Dear Liza, a hole.

Sexually suggestive Pokemon?
Speaking of Pokemon…
Penny Arcade cracks me up. LOL
I just thought of 2 dumbass memories!
Write them down quick so you don’t forget them.

I have a dumb ass memory that needs to be recorded. But, suffice to say, boobs can be very distracting. 🙂
Speaking of that, I was actually going to call this episode “Gulliver’s Nipples”, but I figured that title might cause weirdness for some people on their work computers, so I went with the much tamer “Greasy Gulliver”.
But the library still calls us Tasteless and Obscene. Bah.
ditto, you have to now come through with that story. My stories do not involve boobs, I don’t think. So much of life does, though, doesn’t it?
Now that I have my life back, more or less, I’ll have to find a way to contribute more to the Deadpan. 🙂

my contribution seems to have not made the joust/frogger reel.
too much production value, I guess.
That’ll teach me.
CP: Stonecrusher Mountain – JC
Doh! How many cred point do I lose for that one?
EssBee: Everyone gets one mulligan.
But just one.
*changing the subject*
Amazing how that one word can completely shut this place down.
I rest my case. 🙂
Aw, that’s it! JOe had to combine cool whip with boobs.
Anybody want some iris? I have an overgrown flower garden and everything must go!
