What! No comments, it’s 11.11am GMT.
Waiting in the queue takes longer:
I believe it. It always bugs me when someone is at home, at work, etc. and they (or someone else) says, “the plane leave in an hour, I better go.”. Maybe I can see it in a program done several decades ago but when I see it in a newer sho it irks me.
Just another one of my pet peeves
Let’s see. There is a 5 minute wait for a ticket, followed by 10 minutes through security, followed by 10 minutes of waiting for the plane to be ready to load, then 10 minutes for the plane to load, 10 to unload, etc.
Can I just swim across instead?
wow only 2 other comments
Yeah, I’m in the top five…
Unless of course, someone buts in with a reply comment
Liked it! Shaky cam wasnt that bad and was much more a war movie than alien takeover movie. No thought behind the writing, to be sure. But enjoyable.
Crap… this should go below in replay to EssBee. Stupid OE
CW: Battle Los Angeles
Ah, another shaky cam flick. Don’t get me started on those
I really wanted to watch that one. please let me know what you think of it.
I would probably like it, I liked battle field Earth.
Watch it! Just dont watch Skyline. Ever. Ever ever. Ever.
ALTHOUGH funny enough, as fuck as Skyline was, they set it up so the sequel could actually be extremely kick-ass if done properly. Which it prolly wont be.
I’m mostly interested because I’m secretly dating Michelle Rodriguez. I watched 1/2 before work and liked it.
Oh I cant blame you at all on the Rodriguez front…
O good choice! but is it a secret to Her also? 😀
Believe it or not, I’m actually in a pretty good mood today
It can be be hard to tell.
Random comments from last week:
Good luck this week El Toronado! May your Boyle be blessed.

Ah work, how I never miss you.
They only want you when youre 17. When youre 21 youre no fun
First of the week:
Clunk click every trip.
I think Canada Post/USPS has lost another package of mine. I was told when I sent it, it would arrive on Wednesday (yesterday). According to Canada Post website “International item has left Canada”. on December 29th. There has been no activity since then *sigh*
I can’t decide if we’re the cleanest people I know or the dirtiest. I have three loads of laundry today. I did three loads on Sunday. For only two of us, that seems an awful lot.
CP: Yesterday’s Fresh Air w/ Pamela Adlon, who I LOVE
Just finished (finally) a little show called The Wire. Damn that’s hot. Truly when U.S television gets it right, this is what happens. Those who have already seen knowwhatimean.
Seasons ranked by order of favorite:
Theme song versions ranked in order of favorite:
Oh, I am a huge Steve Earle fan, all the way around. Now you have to watch Treme!
I think Season 2 was my favorite, but hard to choose.
Married 7 times!!!! Divorced 6 times!!
doobie doobie do
Singing in the dead of night?
Whistling in the dark!
My spreadsheets don’t balance today. I just hate it when that happens
You need a better scale?
*braces for impact*
After an hour I found two errors, both of them in the wrong direction. Now I’m out even more.
Via Topless Robot, the most appropriate remake of a Tron Legacy song:
I think my favorite Wire theme was #1.
Favorite Season was #3. Stringer Bell. Omar. Brother Mouzone.
Favorite full night of sleep recently? bwahahaha
I am also secretly dating Idris Alba.
Actually I think I may be too…
Secretly, I AM Idris Alba.
Oh, my . . .
Oh Brother Mouzone… thats good shit!!!
You are getting..sleeeeeepy…sleeeepy…
I found it! Yah! ok, now breathe, just breathe. The world won’t end anymore.
CP: It’ll Never Leave You Alone – Crash Test Dummies
Well I have things to do. Don’t know if I’ll make it back on line today.
Tomorrow I’ll crack open the DVD Lo Pan gave me and do a cheesy play by play. Most of the movies are from the 50’s or 60’s so I expect the to me MST3K worthy.
I am wasting LARGE amounts of time today.
This could eat up 5 minutes or so.
“Songs for Dad: 20 Tracks to Help Keep the Old Man Current”
Is it wrong that I now want to buy two of the albums on that list?
I am now intrigued by the Bela Fleck and the Pink Floyd comparisons, although I’m pretty sure I’ve heard, dug, and forgotten Manchester Orchestra.

All I know is that I saw Bunny talking about Spreadsheets…
Were they silk?
High thread count?
Well Mission Inpossible:Ghost Protocol was rather fun in a going through the motions way.
I wonder how more times Hollywood can butcher a classic theme.
It helps not to ask for Mission Impossible 3 when buying a ticket..
CP: Winter — Tori Amos
“I wonder how more times Hollywood can butcher a classic theme.”
That’s like trying to guess the number of atoms in the ocean.
Isn’t that the very definition of the big studios in Hollywood? It’s like asking why water is wet. 😉
The Higgs-Boson-Mayer particle?
How about the Cameron-Higgs-Boson ?
Not timely, and NSFW for language but still funny.
TIL: ex-spousal maintenance (AKA Alimony) shows up on your check (in Wisconsin) as Child Support.
I’m going to be laughing about that all year… but only a little because I still have to pay it all year.
Hooooooboy….. I see where youre going with that
I think the even funny part is I have nothing to do with now the money gets there and i already got a call about it.
He He. Your lack of planning isn’t a crisis on my part. I might feel differently if she wasn’t living with her parents.
RE: Justa Joe’s “Songs for Dad” link above.
Unsurprisingly, I didn’t know most of the “If your Dad likes….” artists.
What if your dad likes Vanilla Ice? LOL
That was hypothetical, my dad likes Led Zeppelin and Dierks Bentley.
I don’t know who Dierks Bently is, but I saw him/them live at my company’s holiday party. It sounded like country music so I didn’t pay much attention.

Cranberry juice is your friend.
I LOL’d when she started screaming! I woke up laughing about that!
Alright, I’ve got my Mass Effect 3 preorder in.
Guess that means I’ve only got two months to finish my walkabout in Skyrim.
Skyrim was so last year.
Dang, I expect Mass Effect 3 to take up large parts of my life in the spring. How will I get things done?
Orange Box sits in the other room.
from within it’s shrink wrap
“Tomorrow” I tell it.
Break that shrink wrap JJ and prepared to be immersed.
I think I shall make some fudge later today. That sounds like a good idea.
Let’s see, what do I have on Preorder…
Mass Effect 3 Collector’s Edition
Diablo 3 Collector’s Edition
Kingdoms of Amalour
I plan to have a busy spring, gaming wise.
I might a actually buy Diablo 3, you may faint in shock now.
Will you catch me if it do? The floor is pretty hard.
There were 2,403 comments for December 2011. Just in case you were curious
CP: yesterday’s Fresh Air – Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen
I’ll catch you.
What a team those two are!
The League is possible the best comedy on TV. Granted I havent started the current season yet but Im positive that Season 2 made me wet my pants from laughter more times than I can remember. Kind of like Liam Neeson leaving a pub.
I haven’t even heard of The League!
Me either EssBee
Its about 5 guys, a girl, and their fantasy football league. But dont let that scare you cause D loves it and she hates football with a passion.
Seen bits of it. Some very funny moments … some very painful, “I Love Lucy” type moments.
Youre gonna have to define “I Love Lucy” moments.
*head in hands*
No sir! Just wanted specifics.
Im not an animal… Im a chocolate factory worker
I’m talking about those moments when they do stuff so paaainfully stupid that it is just hard to watch. Those are the “I love Lucy” moments.
The porn tape on the big screen TV at the bar mitzvah comes to mind. The minute they showed up with THAT DVD you knew, KNEW it was going to end up being shown to the neighborhood.
Yet, like a slow motion, grinding car wreck … you just couldn’t look away.
I find those comedic moments more painful then funny.
I agree, which is why I don’t watch many sit-coms.
After lunch I’m going to open the DVD Lo gave me as a SS gift. Prepared to be terrified with this classic http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0051993/
Taglines: “No girl was safe as long as this head-hunting thing roamed the land!”
Budget: $68,000 (estimated)
Sweet! That’s less then Lo Pan’s bar tab!
Well, I think it’s time to make some fudge.
I must be spending to much time with small kids lately because that made me giggle way to much
fighting …urge … to … quote …
After last night’s Coal Burger, I was thinking the same thing.
Oh, no you did not.
I appreciate that 🙂
Because how ever I said it, I was referring to finally being able to spend time with friends and not getting yelled at. Those friends just happen to have young kids.
I’m not driving around in a Van with “Free Candy” Spay painted on the side of it. 😀
and “Bow Wow Wow” playing on the under-dash cassette player
Fudge is now in the fridge setting. I didn’t have enough chocolate so I had to sneak out and get some more.
“had to sneak out and get some”
I think I’m just going to ignore you all. Probably better for my sanity. 😉
But crazy is way more fun!!!!!!!!!!
9 out of 10 voices in my head agree.
CP: Relief Next to Me — Tegan and Sara
Went to the USPS website. According to them my parcel was delivered this morning. All just might be right again.
Good morning. I am at work.
There, the bathroom is nice and clean and the dishes have been done. I even took apart and cleaned the kitty’s water fountains. I feel like I’ve accomplished something today.
I might have to get Anno 2070 http://www.gamespot.com/anno-2070/platform/pc?tag=result;title;0
I’ve enjoyed the other Anno games.
CE: grapes. I like to eat them frozen
Wouldn’t those just be ice cubes with sugar mixed in?
A cheerleader wielding a chainsaw to kill zombies. Um….
sounds like this one
A buddy of mine was cinematographer for that. I got a call from him one day and he says “Hey! I’m in a girl’s gym locker room waiting to film a cheerleader, shower sequence!”
Some days, he really loves his job.
I just don’t know which seat I should take.
I saw what you did there. 🙂
I’m just thankful someone did.
I feel left out.
Finally followed up on ditto’s previous posting. Downloading the “End of Line” edition of the Tron: Legacy fan compiled mix. Both “Bio-digital Jazz” and “The Perfect System” have enjoyed heavy rotation on my Ipod this year.
CP: The Happening — Pixies
ooh, Kim Deal day
CP: Divine Hammer — The Breeders
Now if something from The Amps pops up, youre all set!!!
Ok peeps, you were warned. Time for that 1958 classic Night of the Blood Beast.
Today’s movie brought to you by Lo Pan. Are you a green eyed girl looking for new adventure? Then try Lo Pan. Guaranteed for a shocking release.
According to IMDB this movie is only an hour and two minutes long. Obviously that means it will be better than you normal 2 hour or 90 minute movie as they will have to pack all the tropes in a smaller package.
First I have to find the right remote. We have way too many remotes in this house
You can’t just say Xbox pause? lOl
I tried that. I guess it doesnt work for blu-ray players
I tried “Xbox, make me a sandwich” but it failed at that as well.
Silly, that’s sudo not xbox. ;P
Hey,Mathis movie’s in black and white.
Oh the way the title is written is a thing of glory
A rocket blasts into space
This is x100 to goldenrod
The ship feels 500 pounds heavier?
How can you tell?
I’ve got to get this sound track
Enter the babe
hehehe “Enter” the babe
What if there’s a “do not enter” sign on the babe?
better than “Condemned”.
Isn’t goldenrod a colour? This movie’s Black and white
“he bought it on the way down”
Is that a technical description?
Dave, look at this mud.
An the 50’s, a simpler time. When all it too to scare you was a creature made from a mud coated blanket
Over three hours and no body “ridgity”
J0e would be proud
If this movie is a sign of the others on the DVD, then they are best watched, and lampooned, with a group. This movie is hilarious
Remember, if you’re a doctor, the best way to transport a body is layed out on the bed of a truck
I think the coroner for Oklahoma did that once.
“in this kind of process the brain starts to deteriorate in three minutes”
I don’t think it too that long for me
Too = took
This man confuses them
Their radio’s been taken out
Now the power is going. What did I say, all the tropes
Bullets don’t work against a blanket.. Er, I mean monster
It’s a good thing they had kerosene lams in the medical lab
It’s not a bear
“is the power out completely?”
Wait, the med lab was a radar facility until a few days ago? Really?
After 7 hours his blood is still alive.
I didn’t know blood was alive
Oh no, three blood cells? White, red, and something else… Du sum dum!
Someone, or something, sabotaged the jeep
Their watches have stopped
It didn’t seem important? Really
Julie is crying. Damn these emotional 1950’s women
“in science the more we learn the more we know there’s more to learn”
Hey, where did he get a gun?
The light’s out? The light’s out? Of course it’s out dummy, there’s a power outage. Has been for hours
The astronaut has risen
Did he see a monolith?
He’s dead Steve
Steve doesn’t seem to be doing so well
Wait, his name is John? Why did you call him Steve earlier?
Steve knows things he shouldn’t
Not Steve I hope! Did they make films like that back then?
I think he’s channelling aliens. He seems to be full of them
Ok, I laughed out loud on that scene
Hey, the blanket has morphed into… Whatever the hell that thing is
A short range flare gun will kill anything
Oh the facts you learn from this movie
They’re giving John/Steve something to stop him from saying the alien is not evil
So far, not a single woman has bought it. I think there was some false advertising
Ther’s a splotch in the upper portion of this movie. I demand they clean the film before releasing it to me. I blame Lo Pan
The watches are running again. The alien must be dead
He shot the rocket. That’ll Teach… No one
John has a paunch
“something foreign is inside of me”
Another quote for J0e
Could be a Canadian.
… wait …
Here J0e, take Van’s coat
*removes the coat from his channel*
John is somehow connected to the alien
It’s probably in his channel. You know, like … channeling him and stuff.
I agree with John. Stupid scientists
John is a magnetic disturbance
Now he’s Johnny. I’m so confused
They’re going to sabotage John’s plan with molatove cocktails
now that’s a party!
although I prefer scotch neat.
Wait, I thought it was a rocket. Now it’s a satellite. This movie’s all over the place
It’s using your body as a breeding ground
The music has turned ominous. Something is going to happen
They decided it was safer to bring the girls with them. Safer for whom?
It’s a good thing the girls are all modern like and wearing slacks. Climbing those rocks would be hard in skirts
hard for who?
I think the alien has morphed into a giant bird
There was you first mistake
Earthling are about to discover the ultimate power
“your projectile was the meanse to penetrate and abstain entry”
Oh J0e, I think it must be channelling you
Abstain = obtain
Penetrate and abstain? How’s that possible?
Now John believes
They’re killing the alien
Not one girl was hurt in this movie. Although they did scream a few times
Do you think we made the right decision?
We’ll probably never know
The movie is over. You don’t know how truly terrifying it was
I shall just have to be terrified vicariously through you, Bunny 🙂
So, I listened to the “End of Line” edition. Afraid this one is pretty much a complete strikeout. Daft Punk does not need silly words over their music. Pretty well ruined every effort in this collection.
There it is:
CP: Hoverin’ — The Amps
A bookshelf full of awesome
fyi – no books.
I think this guy makes some good points. Although, I do have to disagree with the last point. While I don’t think trade barriers should allows domestic companies to be inefficient, I do think a nation’s government has a strategic interest in promoting and protecting jobs within its own borders.
I think it’s within a nation’s interest to help level the playing field with foreign companies when foreign governments unfairly support their companies.
I think most people would agree with you, especially people in other countries … and that’s why this is so complex.
“I think it’s within a nation’s interest to help level the playing field with foreign companies when foreign governments unfairly support their companies.”
There are undoubtedly businessmen and politicians in China/India/Elbowbekstonia that think this is exactly THEIR position. They are just trying to level the playing field in order to compete with the giant US corporations who currently receive billions in support from the US government.
It is the economic version of an “Arms Race”.
Sadly, I haven’t seen any good solutions for how to stop the spiral.
I think that IS a good summation of the schizophrenia that is developing within the economic community right now.
There is a growing schism in the psych of US capitalism. Half want to increase profits by having the government somehow force the rest of the world to be as expensive as we are … the other half want to be free to utilize the cheapness of the rest of the world to maximize profits. If that means laying off American workers to utilizing slave labor in Indonesia then so be it!
Both sides are fanatical about their way being the truly patriotic, real AMERICAN, capitalistic way.
… in other news …
I was playing dominoes with some friends tonight and was put to work with a cutting board, knife and hunk of cheese. Then, I was told it was my turn to play and I explained that I couldn’t because I was cutting the cheese.
Another proud moment. I thought of you guys.
I’m in awe that people still play dominoes and not just stand them up for a chain reaction of toppling.
Actually, we were playing a version called “Mexican Train”
Although I have played the “standard version with these folks.
Toppling them is also fun.
I have friends who, whenever they come over to play games, all they want to play is Mexican Train. We have dozens of board games but, Mexican Train seems to be the go-to if they’re involved. I’m tired of Mexican Train. I’m so happy when we have different groups over for gaming.
I promise to not even mention it if I make it to game night.
You feel free to talk away!
Crap joke alert (passed to me by a work colleague):
A pretty primary school teacher, is concerned about one of her pupil’s,
So she take’s him aside after class,She say’s,
“Jack,i’m concerned about your work,You seem distracted”,
Blushing,Jack say’s”I’m in love miss”,
Smiling,the Teacher say’s”Who with?”,
Jack say’s”You miss”,
The Teacher say’s,”But Jack,dont you see how silly this is?,
It’s true,i want a husband one day,But i dont want a child”,
Jack say’s”Dont worry Miss,I’ll cum on your tit’s”.
I gave an audible gasp at that one!
Pity you didn’t record it for a deadpan episode..
I fucking love you for this one.
Rhettro/Jack/anyone else who might know: do you think this is a decent-enough starter-bass guitar? The price is nice:
I can also ask my hubby later, Ess. Right now he’s downstairs rocking out so I don’t want to disturb him. Although, I honestly don’t think he’ll be much help. He has a bass but that’s not his main area of expertise.
I s he in the BASSment ?
I spoke to my husband. He directed me here http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090218141621AAKDiIJ which he says is as good an answer as you can get. He also said he’s always hesitant to recommend these type of packages as, usually, the amp is crap and, as soon as you get any good, you will have to upgrade the bass to something more decent as well. If you’re on a tight budget, than it’s ok to go with this but just remember, it’s the old adage “you get what you pay for” so don’t expect anything great.
Thanks, Bunny! At this point, I’m not even sure that I’d stick with it – good answer, though!
Just caught RED again this evening thanks to the free weekend Showtime is running. Damn it’s a great movie.
Seems like a good night for catching up on comments.
Rhettro and Cj: Yes, Dierks Bentley is a fairly well-known country singer. I know who he is, and my family likes him.
I find This last season of Chuck to be unbearably cheesey at times.
I find eating a bowl of Frosties and looking at the screen at an odd angle helps at such times.
Granted, this year has been less consistent. But, I do have to give them credit for trying to move in a different direction. Though, I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to go for the full season after those first couple of episodes. Since it is the last season, I’m sticking with it to see what they do with everyone.
Rocks fall. Everyone dies.
It was all just a twinky fuelled dream.
I find I am in no hurry to watch this season’s episodes like I did with previous seasons. I’ve grown tired of the heart to heart, “trust me” speech the give every episode.
That being said, this last episode brought back some of the funny/quirky that made the show fun.
“Can we agree that one needn’t be a Luddite to recognize these small pleasures?”
I’ve been told these are available worldwide:
Aimed at young children, but still interesting, I was there when the first lecture was filmed with friends.

And, as Christmas draws to a close, I’ve taken down the tree and put away the decorations.
Yeh. I’m gonna get to that.
Or are you just really well prepared for December? Wouldn’t want to procrastinate, you know.
Ugh, I posted to the wrong comments – here we go again…
Took the kids to see Hugo.
Sarah loved it, I loved it… Fletcher is still 6 years old. It’s really long for a kid that age to sit through. I’d like to play back a conversation had during the movie. (Disclaimer: If I did text during the movie, I kept my phone all the way down inside my blouse so as not to disturb other patrons with the light.)
Scene: Watching movie.
Fletcher: Mommy, I have to poo.
Me: Right now? Can you hold it?
Fletcher: I don’t know. Is it almost over.
Me text to LostRalph: How long is this movie?
LostRalph: That bad huh? 2 hours 6 minutes
Me: It’s good. Fletcher has to poo.
LostRalph: Oh, bad timing.
Me: Fletcher, do you want to go to the bathroom? There is almost an hour left.
Fletcher: No. I can hold it.
Fletcher then lies down and goes to sleep.
Jesus Christ Tebow?
How ’bout that?
Jack: I’ve been catching up on my backlog of Deadpan episodes lately, and today, I got to the Christmas Duel of the Fates episode. I had a huge, cheesy, silly grin on my face throughout the segment you recorded with your kids. Great idea for a DotF, Jack and Cj. You brightened up my day. 🙂
Good night, mush.
Thank you, Amy 🙂
You’re welcome! 🙂
My Internet is all flighty right now. I never know if the modems working or not at any given time. The cable company won’t be in until Friday to replace it so if I’m a little quiet this week, that’ll be why
Well what do you know, it seems to be working at the moment
I’m hubbyless again tonight. 🙁
/time to play the violin!
..and my New Year Resolution is to never watch TV with a pedantic musician.
Good luck with that one.
In the first episode of the new Sherlock series, it was commented on that Sherlock was playing the violin in a different key to the music that you actually hear in the episode.
I just kept the peace and mumbled under my breath.
we don’t have the new Sherlocks yet. I quite enjoyed the last three so I’m looking forward to the new ones when the come here.
I don’t believe in New Year Resolution. To me it’s just setting yourself up to fail. Very few resolutions are kept beyond a certain point. Why do you have to wait until New Years to make something better of yourself. If you want to do/be/quit something you should be able to do it any time of the year, not just at New Years.
My tongue was firmly in cheek TEB.
Okay, if THIS New Years Eve performance didn’t activate the Mayan calender’s “end of days” sequence … it’s just not going to happen.
CP: Weather of a Killing Kind — The Tallest Man on Earth
I didn’t have time to read the whole article, but what skimmed is fascinating.
I sense this as the background setting for some part of the next Bond film.
I need to drink some more:
My drinking isn’t enough that something like this would affect me. I now usually only have one drink on Friday and Saturday and remain dry the rest of the week.
I’m installing iTunes and then I’m going to upload a happy song for Van.
CP: Storming New Caprica — Bear McCreary
Who the what?
In response to EssBee’s bass guitar question from page 1:
You need just about all of the stuff included in that package, and it would cost just about the same to buy it all separately. I don’t know much about Kona instruments, but as long as the frets don’t buzz too much (which can be fixed), it should be a good learner bass.
Thanks, Jack! If i actually play it and end up with buzzy frets, I’ll call ya!
We must shop at the wrong places. Hubby’s amps alone costs more than the entire package shown, let alone all that other stuff.
But he’s practically a pro!
or impractically as the case may be :sideways:

Does this need to exist? And does the water really need to pour out of his ear? Does the Chekhov version of that have a creepy little bug fall out of his ear, like in Star Trek 2?

At least Timmy shows that he has some talent… plus he plays on Sunday.
Gotta touchdown on Sunday.
An article doing the rounds on Twitter;
Well, judging from the Facebook comments, sounds like I didn’t miss much by not catching the BCS title game last night. At least I know which coworkers to give a wide berth today.
Finished listening to “Snow Crash” yesterday. The ending was somewhat abrupt and less than satisfying, but overall an engaging tale.
Got “High Fidelity” downloaded and ready for the drive to work. It’s unfortunately only available abridged on Audible. I’ll probably catch the movie and well before I draw any conclusions.
“somewhat abrupt and less than satisfying”
Though I enjoy a lot of his books, I find this statement to hold true for a number of them.
Ugh, it’ll be a Roll-Tide day at Evil today.

No wonder everybody I know has a cold
Hey, The Caymans and Belize still use Fahrenheit too. Stop singling us poor ‘Mericans out.
Yeah, but they don’t know any better. You should. 😉
I think, from this point, you can do your own conversions :cheerful:

So true 🙂
I sent a happy happy song to Van… anyone else wanna hear it? I need to know your youtube username or something cuz It’s private and all.. since yeah.. something legal blah blah..
I like the human-centric nature of Fahrenheit.

The comments on this Gina Carano article are hilarious.
The next Riddick movie might have some interesting assets. 🙂

Would Starbuck and Knight Rider’s baby be a Sackhasselhoff?
Ohhhhhh you know better than to do that!!!
CW: 1984 (The one with John Hurt and Richard Burton).
So giving the UK version of Netflix a trial.
1984 is classed as scifi/fantasy
Ah I can feel the ghosts of literary snobs past spinning like Catherine wheels
Its the color of their skin….
No? Anyone? Early 90’s shoegaze reference? No? Anyone? Bueller?
That guy is Bruce Dickinson’s cousin!
And I never thought of them as shoegazer.
Oh snap, I knew who Catherine Wheel were, and the Bruce connection, just not that familiar with their material.
Internet, I am dissapoint.
After Van’s response wondering if Roll Tide had something to do with being Rick Rolled, I was sure someone would have mashed those up some how.
Perhaps my Google-fu is just lacking, but I’m not been able to come up with any decent hits for a Rick Roll Tide….
Well not too impressed with the what Netflix has available for streaming in the UK.
Early days I suspose, but compared to what you can stream in the USA, it’s a limited selection.
…and despite trumpeting the access to BBC content, no classic Dr Who..grrrr!
We don’t get the selection the US does either, Van. However we did get some classic Dr. Who’s
Its true. The U.S. version isnt on the Celsius scale…
Guffaw! ‘N chortle ‘n such
Insert the sound of one hand clapping
Not here, my friend. Not here.
News for Bunny and her hubby – – and anyone else:
I have three editions of D&D, 1st, 3.5 and 4e. You know how many dungeons I created with them? One, when I was twelve. It seems I am more a rule book collector than D&D player, I see that as a problem for D&D moving forward.
As a followup to something Van posted earlier:
So the technology-eating tree ate my router (I’m umbilicalled to the modem atm), and now it seems to have eaten the Snowball mic. I’m sure it still works, it’s just not working with Windows 7.
I was working on this week’s episode, but it appears I can’t do any recording, unless I reactivate the laptop’s internal mic. I’m booked tomorrow evening, so it’s looking like another fking Unshow week, if anything at all. Sorry, folks. I am the :ftb:
Sadness fo sho but not to fret.
We shall overcome.
Ate your mic? It’s only six months old. wow.
This am unacept! Lo Pan shall use darkest magic to reactivate your internal mic!!!
Oh dear Ching Dai…thats no internal mic! I’m so sorry Van…
FYI – Nick Hornsby is not Bruce Hornsby.
First glance … I thought you had posted –
“Nick Hornsby ATE Bruce Hornsby.”
I don’t know why.
Now I am thinking about Bruce Campbell having a Hornsby’s Cider.
Dangit! I was going to make that joke. LOL
I also tend to think of Jeff Healey and Bruce Hornsby as the same person.
That’s just the way it is’ nothing ever changes..
Get to visit my doctor and nutritionist this afternoon. I was not a good girl over Christmas so expect to hear about it. :silly:
You an me both!
… er, well I was not a good boy.
Not much of a girl either I suppose.
Got to get rid of all this left over candies and caramel popcorn and such.
Good line from Bill Moyers on the Colbert Report last night.
He quoted a friend of his who said, ‘I’ll believe the Corporations are citizens when Texas executes one.”
I think I’m going to strangle a few people at work. I’m pretty sure I can claim justified homicide. At the very least, insanity caused by stupidity.
Yup, insanity it is :dizzy:
Really, watching the e-mails fly is frustrating :sick:
Oooh, blowy snowy

Although, we didn’t actually see that much in the city. It was just the outlying areas.
Yes, very similar to that!
In cleaning out the basement news… I did convince hubby to ditch the VHS tapes. Today I’m going to hit him up on losing cassettes and 3.5″ floppy disks. We don’t have any way of using those either.
Had to have a shower. It sure is dusty under the stairs
CD: Listening to an actual LP!
ZZ Top – “Eliminator”
attempting to convert to mp3
I’m slowly doing the same thing to my cassette tapes.
I still hoot farty.
Shall you hiss and jump as well?
No, but I’ll cum on your tits.
Will you Come on Eileen?
At this moment!
If a big name author (I’m looking at you George RR Martin) brings out the works off HP Lovecraft as an example of how evil fan fic is, then this article should provide some ammo in response:
Hey ditto. I got your Christmas card today.
I suspect the US postal service thinks nothing of the Atantic Ocean but is terrified by the US-Canada border.
And rightly so 😉
Have you SEEN the size of those moose?
Yes, I have! 🙂

Sometimes I miss “Life”. That was a great show, with great music.
I LOVED Life.
Me too. There were lots of good points.
*ahem* Sarah Shahi *ahem*
I have no idea what you mean.
I even bought the season of The L Word that she guest starred in.
I’m sure I have not idea.
Pass me the binoculars.

P.K. Dick Nominees for 2011
I’ve read “Deadline” and “A Soldier’s Duty”. Both are excellent.
And oh – no panic yet about the mic. It worked just fine before the move, those Snowballs are sturdy, it was packed securely, and it only traveled about 200 yards from old place to new.
“it only traveled about 200 yards”
Yes, but how fast was it going and how many objects did it pass through along the way?
“those Snowballs are sturdy”
“No, no – – it’s lemon.”
*Theme from The Odd Couple*
you know I’m sad enough to notice what looks a picture of Chun Li on the wall to the right.
There are times when I hate my job, and then there are times when I really hate my job.
Tonight is the latter.
Hang in there, Tiger(uppercut).
I just ripped side 1 of REO Speedwagon’s “Good Trouble”.
I . just . simply . don’t . recall . them . being . this . awful!
Looks like it time for you to fly, JJ
I just threw up in my mouth a little.
Its cool. I’ll just keep on rollin’
Now I’m saving this in a bag for you.
True story – the lead singer of REO tried to seduce my wife backstage once. She was 22. He was 50ish. So see? Now you BOTH have vomit inducing stories…
BTW – I’ve decided to start a stack of LP’s to throw at zombies should I ever be attacked by any in my garden. REO will be on top of that heap.
Well, hubby just finished going through the last of the stuff in the basement. He said yes to trashing the disks and the cassettes. He even went so far as to mention the LP’s we have. I’ve decided to hold on to them for, at least, another week just in case he changes his mind on those.
ZP’s top and bottom 5 of 2011:
He outscored my entire team.
Sooooo I’m playing Devo’s “Red Eye Express” while doing dishes.The chorus is “Gone Gone Gone, the Red Eye Express” over and over again…. and from the living room I hear my son chanting ‘Bom Bom Bom, I like bread’…
And now that all Ill hear when I hear that song….
I’m off to camp out on the main page, but I will probably fall asleep first.
… its extremely possible that there may be NOTHING on god’s green Earth than Sepultura covering Devo’s ‘Mongoloid’.
