This post has nothing to do with the hokey magic shuriken I think there was a cyclops and an old guy with a spider ex-girlfriend film, “Krull,” it’s just a snappy word-blending of “scroll” and “Krull.”
Who knows, maybe Krull will come up in the comments.

It’s movie time!
But not Krull.
Should get the palooza treatment. Just saying.

Quicker than the human eye.
Today’s movie is called Intruders (not to be mistaken with the tv series of the same name)
The DVR write up: Two children in Spain and England are terrorized by a hooded, faceless phantom that seemingly sprung to life from the pages of the horror stories they wrote
Dear diary, some movies have subtitles. Why?
The secret is that only the good ones have subtitles.
Why do I doubt that
I know, I now, I look shifty.
Dear diary, the monster from my story attacked mom. It was scary
Dear diary, mommy was mean to me. I was telling her a story when she made me go to bed
Dear diary. When I get a cat, I’m going to name it Meow, because I have no imagination
Crap joke for the day:
A defendant was on trial for murder. There was strong evidence indicating guilt, but there was no corpse.
In the defence’s closing statement, the lawyer, knowing that his client would probably be convicted, resorted to a trick.
“Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I have a surprise for you all,” the lawyer said as he looked at his watch. “Within one minute, the person presumed dead in this case will walk into this courtroom.” He looked toward the courtroom door. The jurors, somewhat stunned, all looked on eagerly.
A minute passed. Nothing happened.
Finally, the lawyer said, “Actually, I made up the previous statement. But you all looked on with anticipation. I, therefore, put it to you that you have a reasonable doubt in this case as to whether anyone was killed, and I insist that you return a verdict of not guilty.”
The jury retired to deliberate. A few minutes later, the jury returned and pronounced a verdict of guilty.
“But how?” inquired the lawyer. “You must have had some doubt; I saw all of you stare at the door.”
The jury foreman replied:
“Yes, we did look, But your client didn’t.”
Dear diary, I snuck out of the house in the middle of the night. It was raining. Me and Meow got wet
Dear diary, I’m pretty sure I saw this movie.
Oh well, *shrug* onward I say
Dear diary, no more stories before bedtime. Nightmares are not our friends
Dear diary. Today I saw a bullet shaped building. Mom said I’ll know what a real bullet is when I grow up
Dear diary, I love the English. They do silly things like call their cats Winnie. How silly is that?
Is that a better name for Pooh?
Today I climbed a tree. Stupid cat
I put my arm down a hole in the tree. Bugs don’t bother me.
Just as a side note: I have seen this movie. Probably did a PBP on it too. But! Will still watch it as entertaining you is paramount
I’m a plagiarist! Fear me! Beam ha, ha, ha.

Today is my birthday. Let the rain of presents begin
Daddy gave me a teddy bear for my birth day. He must die!
The teacher liked my story. Now I must finish it…
Dear diary. Today I saw moms boobs. She was in bed with dad
I’m having nightmares. I blame mom’s boobs
Dear diary. Today it rained blood. I spoke Spanish. It was strange
Church today. Mom spoke to the priest “in private”
Smart people use safety lines. Stupid people don’t
Daddy rescued a stupid person today. He was a hero
I have no face
I may be twelve, but daddies still help keep the monsters away
I stabbed at the monster then daddy set fire to it. No more nightmares for me
Mommy is a bitch
I am Spanish again. It’s also raining. Again. I hate being Spanish
The monster came back. Luckily it’s the Spanish me he’s after so everything’s ok
The priest came by. He said he wanted to see me but I really know what he was after
Daddy is starting to believe me
Daddy fought Hollow Face for me. I love my daddy
He stole my mouth now I can’t scream
Sorry for the delay. Stupid solicitor came to my door as I was typing
Dear diary, no one expects the Spanish Intruders.
It’s the comfy chair for you.
The evil spreads. I want to hide under my covers
Ther was an old man in my room when I woke up. He said he was a priest but I have my doubts
Today, mommy and daddy took me to a shrink. I’m not crazy
The new alarm daddy installed is rather loud
I think the stories are true…
He came again tonight. Once again, daddy came to my rescue
The malice think daddy is Hollow Face. How can I tell them they’re wrong when I have no voice?
Ow! My kitty bit me. I think she’s trying to tell me something
The priest can’t see him. I’m scared.
Momis packing. We must be going on a trip
The shrink says daddy and me were hallucinating. They are wrong
Did I mention mon’s a bitch
They’re making daddy go away. Please make them stop
Why can’t I stop writing the story? Maybe he would go away if I stopped writing about him
Tonight mommy and the priest had a sleep over. They were so busy, they wouldn’t come when I screames
Today Grandpa checked the tree. It was empty. It’s all my fault
Daddy is Spanish. Who knew?
Has ut ended yet?
I think a pipe burst. My room is full of water… And tree roots… And…I’m scared
So that’s a no then.
I have no face. Please help me
Grandma killed hollow face. She’s bad ass
Hollow face is free
Now it’s over.
I was kind of ok with this movie. Not great, but better than some of the schlock I see

So my wife has long standing back problems that make it hard for her to sit for too long. Thus, we spend a lot of time at our pool table in the living room while watching TV. Thus, we watch a lot of easy material like SyFy movies and Jerry Springer. Last night I decided to try something a little more involved and we watched The Dark Night because she had not yet seen it. She said it was hard to follow. The punchline of this story is that the next DVD coming from Netflix is Shutter Island.

Does this mean theyll be selling cups of Horton’s in Burger King soon?
What people tend to forget is Tim Horton’s was owned by Wendy’s for about ten years or so until it was spun off again. They still have a working relationship as it’s fairly common to see both Wendy’s and Tim Horton’s sharing building space. I don’t see how Burger King is any different than that.
Yeah, I agree. And so far they say there isn’t any plan on cross branding. Personally, I much prefer Tim Horton’s food over BK. We’ll see how that changes. 🙁
T Cat likes to point out that it is impressive that TH has branded donut holes so well, that many Canadians don’t even know that that is what Timbits are. 🙂
I tend not no forget since I tend not to have known that in the first place
I’ve been to TH once while in Buffalo. It was okay. I wasn’t particularly impressed.
People forget that although BK is based in Florida, the parent company is a Brazilian company. Reports are that Warren Buffett is impressed enough to buy in.
I don’t think I’ve ever partaken.
I hate to get all “Billiards” here but it’s hard to get around this one.
Turns out this merger is a tax dodge.
According to the financial sites, the “new” company will be “based” in Canada. Therefore … no corporate tax dollars for the US.
Oh, BK will still get all of the protections and incentives of operating in the US.
They just won’t have to pay US tax on the money they make while enjoying those perks.
BTW – Last year (I just personally looked up the financials) BK made a NET profit of 270.5 MILLION dollars. Yes, that was the cash they were wallowing around on AFTER they had paid all of those US taxes they are trying to avoid.
They ended their year with their HIGHEST profit margin ever and it has gotten even higher the first two quarters of this year.
Just something to keep in mind when you see Corporate shills shedding crocodile tears at the taxes they are supposed to be paying and threatening to move their headquarters out of the country to get “relief” from the onerous burden. They aren’t even close to going bankrupt due to taxes.
Jennifer Lawrence is dating the dude from Coldplay.

Good luck with that.
But who would save her from mine?
Hopefully they will cancel out.
“Hi Jen, my name is Lo. I’m a middle aged, unsuccessful, pasty, bald, beer gutty American. Wanna grab a drink or maybe just do it?”
Apparently, “Hi, I’m a middle-aged, vaguely European guy with gobs of talent that’s been squandered to create middle-of-the-road, weepy versions of Hootie and the Blowfish tunes” works for some guys on the Hollywood blondes.
And another thing! I don’t give a crap where you work. If you’re good to the people (or Chinese Elemental demons, in some cases) closest to you, and considerate to the people who *ain’t* closest to you, then that’s all the success that matters, in my book.
Its a good book!!

Your crap joke from the day:
A Scottish lad and lass were sitting together on a hill in the Highlands.
They had been silent for a while, when the lass said, “A penny for your thoughts.”The lad was a bit abashed, but he finally said, “Well, I was thinking how nice it would be if ye’d give me a wee bit of a kiss.”So she did so.But he again lapsed into a pensive mood which lasted long enough for the lass to ask him, “What are ye thinking now?”To which the lad grumbled, “Well, I was hoping ye hadn’t forgotten the penny!”

Flash Gordon, however, gets inspired by Dale’s ridiculous arm-flappy cheerleading.
Also, the Flash origin is shown around the 6 second mark.

We’ve decided on doing a small Fantasy Football pool at work. I’ve been told I need a team name and I’m not feeling creative right now. Supervisor said since this not going to be on company systems, a NSFW name for the team is okay. Any ideas?
If you really want to go NSFW and offend everyone, you could just call them the Redskins, although, I’m a fan of “Porkskins” or “Potatoskins” myself. “Foreskins” might still be a bit weird for a team with co-workers.
If you want to offend those who hit their girlfriends I enjoy “Beats by Ray” or “The Rice Beaters”.
Well, I doubt if this is the case, but if they’re them kinds of good ol’ boys, then I’d go with “Your secret attraction to Michael Sam.”
I’ve named my team the “Band of Misfit Toys”
I was also dead last in my league last year, so there’s that.

New brewery opened up in EssBee’s tow, ‘300 Suns Brewery’. Checked it out and was well pleased. The greatest surprise came when I ordered a growler of Belgian Pale Ale and found out that that specific ale was a contest winner brewed my the brother of my best friend since high school. My fried passed a few years back, so it was a great ‘raise of the glass’ to my buddy.
That’s a cool tribute.
For the first time in over 20 years I ‘m getting stressed out at work.

So does Adam Baldwin being a dick on twitter reduce your enjoyment of Rewatching Firefly?
I though watching The Last Ship was punishment enough.
I try and ignore celebrities as much as possible. And personally, I’ve been enjoying The Last Ship.
(ditto secretly has every episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians DVR’ed)
I’m saving them to torture you with ’em. 😉
The Last Ship has had some good bits, but the terrible acting of the guy playing the Captain and Adam Baldwin rather takes the shine off it for me.
The Russian stereotype bad guy added rust.
But heh the new Baddie on the season finale was a good change..
Well, it is a Michael Bay production, so I expected some of that. It’s entertaining, but best enjoyed when you don’t think about anything. 🙂
I have been known to stop watching an actor or actress or stop listening to a musician based on how they treat others. My thinking is I don’t want to support their behavior with my dollars and attention. I know they have no idea who I am or will stop the behavior if they ever knew (like they would even care), but it makes me feel a little better.

Was a great time to go – about 630 after the after work rush left. It was 2/3 empty. I only tried 3 of their 10. The ESB was good, the stout so-so, and the red very good.
RE: Van’s mention of Adam Baldwin. Ugh. Just saw him in an episode of Leverage too:
I have been following some of this, but wow… this travesty is even worse than I thought. And Baldwin’s behavior is inexcusable.
As for Sarkeesian’s videos, I highly recommend them. It’s food for thought, which is part of what outrages these privileged fucktards that out to get any woman involved in games. Or comics, for that matter.
Frankly, I have the depressing impression that the political climate of the past decade is triggering a regression in not only civil discourse, but civil rights as well.
I agree, ditto. The pendulum is gonna swing back now in the US. Creepy to read stuff like The Handmaid’s Tale and imagine what could be on the horizon. B & I have wondered if registering a civil union was a wise move . . .
Deeply, deeply appalling. It’s tempting to dismiss as solely the behavior of bored, unsupervised, ignorant, socially-underdeveloped, young bullies, but sadly, this doesn’t seem to be the case. Adam Baldwin, for one, is a grown man with smart, progressive colleagues. These peopel should know better
Further to ditto’s comment, here is a write up on criticism vs. hate
Further to this, I am the gamer in the house. That’s not to say hubby doesn’t game, but, we both agree, of the two of us, I go farther, and deeper, and play way more games than him. However, while nowhere to the degree of these two ladies, I still have the stereotype placed on me.
When the super duper special edition of whatever game comes to the door, inevitably the courier asks if this is for either my husband or my son. Sometimes I say it’s for me but mostly I just ignore the question as I don’t want to get into a discussion about my gaming habits.
And heaven forbid I play an on-line game. If it comes out I’m female, well the comments can be down right rude (I had one person ask me to take a picture of myself nude and post it). I tend to stay away from on line games. I prefer playing by myself.
Just my two cents worth.
I’m proud that my group of gaming friends don’t act like this. I worry about their sons though. We all know what peer-pressure is like at that age. It is possible they are these kinds of morons. No one should pretend such threats are harmless. But this is the same community that believes Swatting is a “harmless” prank. It’s reprehensible. It makes me ashamed to be a gamer.
Such behavior is unacceptable. I really hope this is a vocal misogynistic minority. A lot of creepers out there.
Of course it’s the minority, Rhett. Nine times out of ten your loud, drum bangers are the minority. Just like most of the stereotypes of any group are (usually) the minority. It’s the unusual ones that get the press after all.

Doc Doom was the only good part of the FF films
You didn’t like the cloud placeholder for Galactus in FF4 2?
See I had blocked that out
The cloud Galactus was bad, the central plot of how stressful it is to plan a wedding was worse.
I haven’t seen the buried Roger Corman FF film from the 90s, but how much worse could it be? These are Batman-and-Robin depths of bad.
Dont ask that until youve seen it. Its near impossible to watch
Further to above, Time to play!

Cool. I’ve been thinking about getting that eventually.
I’m enjoying it so far. I’m only a few hours into it. It’s by the makers of Bastion and has a similar feel to it. Fairly quite with an interesting story line.
That moment, when you’ve decided to buy something from Amazon, then you decided to read all the customer reviews.
Now I’m dithering on buying some noise cancelling headphones.

A little harsh tosee Arizona ranked at #35 🙁
But I guess that means I’m missing out on some amazing beers and i must branch out more.
However, Colorado is ranked 3rd. Something to look forward to.
IMHO we should be ahead of Oregon and behind California… but thats just me.
Pixie lists are dumb. Worry not about lists
I sure hope we can surpass Iowa someday….
I guess when we are in Colorado we should all get a pint of Coors.
So it seems it’s good to live in Texas:
Youd have to have Ed verify that
You know, it’s just one of those things that you can’t really explain to those outside. Though, I expect the Colorado and Arizona folks have similar sentiments about their home turf.
It’s a big place.
Unlike Otisburg, which is a little bitty place.
CH(oping): the film is better than the book
How could it not be?
I cant stop laughing, but then, at the end, it got creepy
Finally checked out “American Hustle” last night. So much talent in that cast, but I think the whole added up to much less than the sum of its parts.
What Ed said. It was fine, but not equal to the hype.
Watching Star Wars has reminded me that even as a kid, I wanted the Empire to win.

After dithering about noise cancelling headphones I went and bought these:
Should still have time to return them if they turn out to be crap.
My 2 cents on NC Headphones in general.
The expensive ones seem to do a really good job. The not expensive ones … not so much.
They do a good job canceling a constant noise like an engine, motor, computer hum, that sort of thing.
I have never purchased a pair because what I want to use them for is noise canceling while I mow the lawn. The NC Headphones I have tried were NOT hardened for that sort of hot, dusty, dirty environment. Amazes me that Bose has never made a “Sports” model of these.
I’m an earbuds guy really, just wanted these for the flight in October as jetliners have a lot of background noise.
I could have went the NC earbud route, but since the reviews I’ve read mentioned you need a perfect fit for the NC to work that gave me pause (I’ve never got earbuds to fit in my ears properly).
Also since I’m not an audiophile and most of the music I listen to is highly compressed I couldn’t see much point spending hundreds of pounds on Bose.
I’ve tried the Bose and found them quite good. But I too balked at the cost.
I have a set of the standard Bose earbuds that I quite like for their audio reproduction … but after only about a year and a half of use the rubber coating on the wires has actually cracked and left exposed wire.
Considering the cost, that’s pretty shameful.
We liked Divergent quite a bit. Made us like the story more.
Just watched The Butler. Pretty good.

“Murphy’s Irish Stout on Nitro”
I get the Irish stout, but what does on nitro mean?
I wish I could answer that,but….
Nitro beers tend to be creamier and less bubbly/carbonated. It also makes for a richer and thicker head.
In response to head…
But seriously, I found that I did not really enjoy the nitro head on this Murphy’s. It tasted lile pure chemical to me like when you use up the last of the whipped cream from the can and all you get is those few drops of cream, along with a zap of nitrogen?? ick
I’ve had other beers on nitro and didnt have the same feeling as I did today.

Read a short story by him in Interzone last week.
So new headphones arrived, and I can’t get the lid off to put the battery in.
..and now I have, it certainly mutes voices, but the real test will be crossing the pond.
muffled rather than mute.
..and the lid is broken which is why it was so difficult to remove.
…and I selected a replacement rather than a refund, could slap myself.
Ah Spotify, thank you for informing me that Essbee listened to ‘Kung Fu Fighting’ by Carl Douglas.
The classic one hit wonder.
I’ve tried to eliminate my social media network from seeing my music updates from Spotify and Pandora. Unfortunately they sometimes slip through.
Oh I wasn’t bothered, just didn’t think that one hit wonder had crossed the pond.
I’m totally going to play that song now, just for you Van!
“Everyone was Kung-Fu Fighting!”
“Those kicks were fast as lightning!”
Good song to kick off a little BTiLT!!! 😀

They got to you, too? There is no justice, my friend.
Thank you all for the birthday well wishes. Continuing on standard orbital pattern.
Blocked? This workplace needs an enema.
It’s raining outside. Hard. This actually makes hubby quite happy. He was going to do his ice bucket challenge today but it may have to be postponed.
Ditto, Van, I guess we should figure out who’s initiating our threesome.
FYI: Home Depot had a data breach.
not that I’m counting or anything, but did it occur to anyone else that four weeks until we’ll be packing for Colorado?
Oh yes, hence the purchase of noise cancelling headphones.
Colorado?? Isn’t it cold there?
Temps are dipping into the 40s at night already, so everyone bring a jacket!
My goodness Colrado is getting more welcoming every day.
I shall also be bringing a woolly hat
I might be able to knit one for you too 😛
Today I played some Impossible Mission (C64 version).
I wasn’t very good at it.
Forgive me, some of these are kinda funny:
I’ll get 25 coats.
My first laugh of the day.
My nerves are burnin, my stomach’s churnin, there’s only one thing I need.
Now THERE’s some nostalgia for us! Funny, I thought the exact same thing when I read Joe’s comment.
This is an interesting development. Could mean hospice/comfort care soon.
I think I feel dumber for having read that. Although, to be fair, I’m not even familiar with most of the authors and series referenced in it.
I’ve certainly found plenty of things to read thanks to even my limited connection to social media – And if this guy thinks no one talks about later books in a series, he apparently missed the frenzies that went along with the last “Wheel of Time” books and Brandon Sanderson’s second “Stormlight Archive” novel.
So, the last paragraph just confirms that the whole article is BS and it’s just the author’s WAG without any supporting data. And yeah, I think I wasted my time reading the article.
Personally, I tend to hate long series. I’m almost always disappointed by the end. It’s like most long running TV shows: the stretch out the story too far, run out of ideas, and end up pissing off the fans.
I do look fondly on the old days where book series were rare and stand alone novels were king.
But time moves on and markets change.
Ack! My Skype recorded has decided it needs to update. For those who may be waiting for me… one moment please.

Now I have to like the Dallas Cowboys. What has this world come to?

Ditto, Van, and I had a nice BTiLC talk. Although, I think we spoke more after the recording then before.
Jack, I have to do a bit of cleaning. Will get the audio file to you some time tomorrow.
Thank you, ditto, Bunny, and Van! I look forward to hearing it. With that, we’ll probably be ready for the first episode to drop in the next few weeks.
There were quite a few times in the old days that I used audio recorded after we’d both signed off (with the guest’s permission, of course).

RIP Joan Rivers. You helped open the doors for women in comedy.
81, she had a good run.
Her mean jokes were sometimes a bit beyond my liking, and I never cared for the superficiality she promoted, but I applaud her legacy as a pioneer in women’s comedy and as someone who held firm against hypersensitive PC grumbling without spewing hate. RIP.
She actually stopped at our table during Comic Expo in April.

Jack – I did elect to take on Lo Pan’s WW2 Panzer General memoir. I think I needed a change up like that in my reading.
Ill expect a 10 page, double spaced, 12 point font research paper on the 7th Panzer division. Due October 4th.
Oh Ill need 3 primary sources not including the memoir as well.
Typed up in Microsoft Works.
Would it be okay if he just presented it in the form of a modern dance piece?
Listen to me closely. Im not good at much. I dont make much money and I dont have a great career. But I take history very very seriously. I kick ass at it and its a passion of mine. So no. Please take this seriously.
Then again if there’s pasties and a Chewbacca outfit involved… fuck what I just said.
I don’t know why we never utilized all the history knowledge and enthusiasm around here.
What’s this about Chewbacca eating a Cornish pasty?
Sing along now:
…and yes I know that anybody who takes history seriously will hate that film in so many ways.

So replacement headphones arrived.
They work and do cut down on background npise.

Trying to find a courier that will ship liquid across the border is hard.
I sure hope this post has nothing to do with the one above it. . .
Just don’t want big trouble in little Canada.
Yes. I thought I shouldn’t bring local brews across the border in my suitcase. Border crossing can be hit and miss with how much of a hassle it is. I thought I’d ship some instead. The problem is, so far, I’m not having any luck finding someone who will ship international.
I brought 16 beers across the border from Montreal in my checked bag. From the US Customs and Border Patrol Website: There is no federal limit on the amount of alcohol a traveler may import into the U.S. for personal use, however, large quantities might raise the suspicion that the importation is for commercial purposes, and a CBP officer could require the importer to obtain an Alcohol and Tabacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) import license (which is required for all commercial importations) before releasing it. A general rule of thumb is that 1 case of alcohol is a personal use quantity – although travelers are still subject to state restrictions which may allow less.

Getting ready to depart for my last Track Meet of the season!
The Pole Vault is on Sunday afternoon but first I am making a loooong drive to Indianapolis to buy some used poles.
I made contact with the current owner about a week ago. 2 days ago I sent him a message asking, for an address and/or phone number. Oh, and can I get a bank check instead of cash.
15 minutes ago I got back from standing in line at the bank for cash … and discovered that he had finally responded. He’d like a money order instead of cash. Never fails.
Used poles sounds like:
-the name of a shitty 90s Nu-Punk band
-A wacky, unfunny 80s comedy
-A creepy, grainy 70s porn
-A risky idea?
The next time you take a sip of the hard stuff remember it’s for your family:

Well everyone. Welcome to Phoenix, Arizona- land of the lakes for freeways and floating manhole covers.
But it’s a dry flooding.
And is it really necessary to send a weather alert, notifying me of the Flooding every 30 minites??
It really is impressive. I-10 is five lanes, each way and its a lake now

Latest fad ?
Something about psychopaths and animals. There was also a link but I have learned never to follow links mother sends. She hasn’t learned about being wary of viruses yet.
I think, in this case, she doesn’t understand about PM’ing. It looks like she pm’d everybody in her “friends” list instead of simply making a post on her page.

So it turns out FedEx, Purolator, and UPS will only ship alcohol from a licensed establishment to a licensed establishment. Now going to contact the brewery and see if they will ship across the border.

I would love to know who in Texas has my number :

Meanwhile in the UK, Harvey Keitel is doing Burglar Alarm ads.
Hopefully not by re-enacting his most memorable scenes from Bad Lieutenant.
If you do a Google search on this number, it’s amazing how many people are getting harassed by them.
Ta TEB, I shall block the number.
I haven’t read all of his novels but the ones I have read I enjoyed.
New iPhone I’ll probably get at some point, no interest at all in the new Apple smart watch.
Hubby’s contract is up soon so he’ll probably get the phone. Doesn’t need a watch. The phone tells the time very nicely.
This is the most interesting announcement of the day for me:
I enjoyed it.
I now have a long list of ebooks on my phone that I have yet to read.
At least the phone doesn’t get bigger, unlike my pile of real books…
Actually… The new iphone is bigger 😉
Those whacky Public Utilities …
I just got my water bill from last month. It showed I used 249,300 gallons of water.
Even funnier … I have automatic bill pay.
I called the water department. The Mrs. lady there ask if maybe I had done some extra watering. I pointed out that I would have had to spray nearly 7800 gallons of water a DAY for 32 days straight, to use that much and ask her if it was actually possible to spray that much and not now be in the middle of a small pond?
She is sending someone out to re-read the meter.
Did you tell them about the shark infested moat to keep out the coyotes?
Maybe they thought you were in the middle of filling up your Olympic size swimming pool.
I suppose it is possible I have a leak in my secret, submarine base.

Hey, Deadpan. ‘That guy’ is back so it must be time for SAUSAGEFEST!
We’ve got about 3 1/2 weeks left to collect about $1000 of our $1600 goal for this year.
Any money we collect beyond that and during the event will go directly to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
How did this get through the sausage filter?
For serious: I will be donating. And what are the Deadpan groupthink thoughts on doing our MMMmmmeetup in St. Louis next year for Archon/Sausagefest?
(Just putting it out there for discussion. I’ve got a wedding to think about, so I don’t know yet how much travel we can do next year ourselves.)
Hmm maybe it was that other guy who also has access to the admin panel. 😉
That would be INCREDIBLE if you guys made the MMMmmmmmeetup part of Archon/Sausagefest. It really is a great party and there are plenty of games and panels and other geekyness to enjoy. Also, costumes, a dance, a masquerade and free beer on Friday and Saturday night with your con badge.
Ah, it’s my favorite time of year!
As for a Deadpan edition of Sausagefest – count me in. Of course, I travel anywhere, so you can count me in for wherever.

Im intrigued by this new album. Besides Kirk it guests Chuck Billy and is produced by Dan the Automator of all people.
It reminds me quite a bit of this:
Pretty cool. The vocalist reminds me of old Accept.
Of course, I know what album I’ll be buying around my birthday.
Wow, that sounds very Nevermore.
While we’re talking thrash bands, I spotted the new Arch Enemy single recently:
I hadn’t heard about Angela Gossow leaving the band, so I was a bit puzzled at first by the new singer.
OK, that’s the last :metal: post from me this evening.
Yah, Angela hand picked her replacement before she left, Alissa White-Gluz formerly of “The Agonist.”
It’s a kind of real-world uncanny valley, hearing those sounds coming from her. . .
For the love of all that’s good in the world, don’t read the Youtube comments.

Apparently, on Monday, we broke a record for snowfall. Wonder if the same happened
No shower for the Bunny. Our tankless hot water system requires power to heat the water. I guess I’m going to be a dirty girl for a while

Still no power. Kitty’s quite happy with the whole thing. She has been able to sleep on my lap the whole morning
It’s funny how the mind works. Whin it’s 19C outside, I think it’s a wonderful day and will go outside in a tshirt and no jacket. It’s no 19C in my house and I felt the need to put a sweater on and my nose is cold.
*sigh*. I hope the power comes back on soon
Your crap joke for the day:
A man walks into a hamburger shop and orders a regular meal. Later, the waitress brings his meal to him. He takes a bite out of it, and notices there’s a small hair in the hamburger. He begins yelling frantically at the waitress, “Waitress, there’s a hair in my hamburger! I demand to see what is going on!”So, the waitress takes him back where the cook is and to his demise, he sees the cook take the meat patty and flatten it under his arm pit. He says, “That’s disgusting!”Then the waitress says, “You think that’s disgusting you should see him make donuts.”
Still no power. It really is stating to get chilly in the house
We need volunteers to go keep Bunny warm! Anyone?
CP: Stuck on You – Meiko
It’s been over four hours and still no power 🙁
My iPad is down to 20% charge. Not sure how much longer I can read on it. My phone is at about 50%. Would think about leaving the house but won’t for two reasons
1). Old arthritic kitty need some place warm to curl up on
2). Most of my end of the city is out. Have no place to go that would be any better
Although, apparently they have power at hubby’s work. It’s too bad kitty hates to travel and hates people or I would head over there with her
Or maybe not. Apparently most of the traffic lights are down between here and there. Hubby said it took a long time to get to work
Gads. Be wary of mutants with mohawks on the road. 🙁 Fingers crossed for the power company to get their shit together soon.
Hmmm. No power means no tea, or any other hot beverage.
My toes are cold
It’s now lunch time here in Bunnyland. Kitty will have to live without a warm lap for a bit so I can make a sandwich or something. I refuse to be cold And hungry
Just got a call from my boss. Apparently they’ve been without power for about five hours too. She lives at the other side of the city. Go us!
Here’s hoping you get warmer soon, Bunny!
And another cool link to keep you warm (minds out of gutters!):
Especially for the DCI folks among us.
Nope. Still no power. Six hours and counting
You’d think six hours of doing nothing but read would be heaven. However, I really do wish I had something else to do.
I also wish I had fully charged my iPad last night. And am very happy I did charge my phone
Seven! Seven powerless hours! Bwa ha ha ha ha!
Was it the snow that caused the powercut?
Yeah Van. It’s a heavy wet snow so it broke tree branches and power lines throughout the city

I just re-watched the movie Hysterical with Richard Kiel about 3 nights ago. Spooooooooooooooooky.
Watch out for snakes!
We have power! And it doesn’t seem to be a false alarm like yesterday. With the exception of a brief 10 minute blip, we were without power for about twelve hours. Twelve. Hours. I think that’s the longest outage we’ve had in the 20 years we’ve lived in this house.
Sorry Guys but there won’t be some Alberta brews at the meetup. I really did try. None of the big three couriers (FedEx, Purolator, UPS) will ship alcohol across the border, nor will either of the breweries. I know I brought some in my luggage one year but won’t now as it’s only getting harder to do so. It really depends upon the border agent at the airport and I’d rather avoid any delays or hassles.
You will just have to come to Calgary if you want to try the local fare 😉
