This was supposed to be a full episode… then it was supposed to be an audio Unshow… and now it’s this.

  1. Fun fact. If I want to replace any of my faded out and well well loved t-shirts from my youth (Alice in Chains, Primus, Lollapalooza ’93 etc, ill have to pay around 150$ each on ebay. No. When did “vintage” shirts become a money making scheme? Back in my day they were called rags.

  2. In my fantasy heaven, I would live near a lake of frozen vanilla ice cream, and every day I would go out and mine for nuggets of cookie dough.

    I need to lay off the Ben and Jerry’s..

  3. CW: From Russia With Love

    One of the naffest musical intros of any Bond film.

    Still, one of the better Bond films in my view, less glitz but all the better for it.

  4. All respect due to Jeremy, and a big eff you to my former friend who lives there, but:

    Why is Seattle trying to steal everyone’s sports teams?

  5. Alright, I think I’m ready to stop panicking and reasonably convinced that I can go on my vacation in the morning. I don’t think my family will every quite appreciate the amount of work I put into planning the vacations we go on so that we can have as much fun and as little stress as possible.

    • I think the real take-away from this article is that 125 million Americans will answer “yes” to anything they see on a survey.

      • Why? Because they don’t give a rat’s ass about surveys, are overloaded with people requesting surveys but too spineless to say no to taking them.

  6. For my next feat for my work I’m going to take a raw narration and clean it up and add music and sound effects for our first audio book release.

    Does anybody know a good site to get sound effects and music? Because this will be for commercial release I fully expect to pay for these.

  7. Crap joke for the day:

    A female TV reporter arranged for an interview with a farmer living just outside Cornerbrook, Newfoundland, to find the main cause of the Mad Cow Disease. Lady reporter : “Good evening, sir. I am here to collect information on the possible source of Mad Cow Disease. Can you offer any reason for this disease?” The farmer stared at the reporter and said: “Do you know that a bull mounts a cow only once a year?” Lady reporter (obviously embarrassed): “Well, sir, that’s a new piece of information, but what’s the relation between this phenomenon and Mad Cow disease?” The farmer: “And, madam, do you know that we milk a cow twice a day?” The reporter: “Sir, this is really valuable information, but what about getting to the point.” Farmer: “I am getting to the point, madam. Just imagine, if I was playing with your boobs twice a day and only screwing you once a year, wouldn’t you get mad?

  8. It’s yucky out there. I think I’m going to make this afternoon a curl up on the couch with a book and some hot tea type of day.

    CR: Caliban’s War by James S.A. Corey

    I expect to finish it today so will be starting on book three of the series, Abaddon’s Gate, sometime today too.

  9. We are awake. We would normally be asleep by now but the city has the area where hubby’s school is on evacuation alert because of the river flooding. We have to stay awake to see if the alert becomes actual and they close the school. We’ve had the occasional snow day but I think this is the first rain day we’ve had.

    Just a note, our home is not in the evacuation zone so we’re ok.

  10. I told John I’m not getting up at five tomorrow like usual. Unfortunately he is. There is the possibility, even though the school is closed, he may still have to go in. He has to check tomorrow to see if they have opened the roads going into that area

  11. ..and your crap joke for the day:

    Two women that are dog owners are arguing about which dog is smarter….
    First Woman : “My dog is so smart, every morning he waits for the paper boy to come around and then he takes the newspaper and brings it to me.
    Second Woman : “I know…”
    First Woman : “How?”
    Second Woman : “My dog told me.”

  12. To use one of those silly hash tags:

    The feeling when Sony release two great games for Playstation Plus subscribers (Xcom and Uncharted 3) and you don’t have enough room on the internal HD to grab them.


  13. I’m awake. Hubby is not going in. Calgary has declared a state of emergency. People are suppose to stay home.
    The zoo is starting to evacuate some of it’s animals. They are going to put some of the big cats in the basement of city hall. How strange is that?

  14. Some of hubby’s teachers have screwed up priorities. Hubby checked his email. The first one he got was from a teacher worried over the fact the staff BBQ, scheduled for today, is not going to happen

    • I guess my view is – anytime someone decides to stop persecuting other people, not because they were told to stop doing it but because they’ve come to the realization that it’s just wrong to do so … that’s a win for humans.

      Does it make up for their past sins? I don’t think so. It is a win for humanity though.

  15. Police are telling people to please stop going to evacuated areas or (the new) river banks to take pictures.

    *shakes head*. It saddens me they actually had to issue this statement

  16. Hubby: They’ve shut down the downtown core
    Me: I knew that. All our Friends who work downtown have comment on such
    Hubby: Doing the Facebook thing are we?
    Me: That’s were we’re getting updates on all our friends. You should go on.
    Hubby: I’m on Facebook this morning. I’m just not paying attention to anybody
    Me: facepalm

  17. We are offering our guest room to any teachers who have been evacuated and have no place to go. I consider it a good thing that nobody has taken us up on our offer. It means everybody does have some place safe to be

  18. Tonight I’m watching a documentary about the band ‘Mott the Hoople’

    Other than the Bowie penned hit I haven’t recognised any tracks yet.

  19. Crap joke for a rainy morning:

    An old farmer was walking down the path to the pond when he spotted a bullfrog. He reached down and grabbed the frog and started to put him in his pocket when the bullfrog said, “Kiss me on the lips and I will turn into a beautiful farmers wife.” Again the old farmer started to put the frog in his pocket. The frog asked, “Didn’t you hear what I said?” The farmer looked at the frog and said,” At my age I’d rather have a talking frog.”

  20. The saddledome is flooded to the with row. Flames management doesn’t think all repairs will be done in time for the start of the hockey season. I predict a lot of away games for the first few months

  21. From the CTV article on the flooding:

    ““It’s just a mad house,” said Dunstan. “They’re out of water, but everybody is very friendly, helping to unload their groceries, pack them up and exchange carts. Everybody is in good humor actually, but they’re out of a lot of stuff.””

    Only in Canada. 😉 :biggrin:

    Glad to hear you’re okay, Bunny. The flooding made it onto the Weather Channel in the US, and I worried a little.

    • We’re out of water? What does that mean? According to the City of Calgary, our water is fine, they just want us to be conservative in using it. I.e. no out door use like washing cars, shut off automatic sprinkler timers, etc. drinking, showering and washing is fine

  22. Re: zombie movies: Last week, I watched one called “Warm Bodies.” It was the first time I’d actually sat down and watched a zombie movie, and I really enjoyed it. I know it was atypical; without giving away too much, it was actually pretty adorable. :happy: I recommend it.

  23. Yes. Several parts of Calgary have been evacuated and will be so until, probably the middle if the week. Yes, we have been put under a state of emergency, yes there is millions upon millions in damages but drinking water is not one of our issues. Several areas are still without power so, for them, food will be an issue. There, will always be those who over react and stock up on good to the extreme. But as far as food and water goes, that’s e least of our issues

  24. CBE (Calgary Board of Education) has decided that, while all schools will be closed tomorrow for general students, grade 12 diploma exams will be written in the schools not in flood zones. So today we are headed to one of the evacuation zones so hubby can pick up the tests from his school for the kids to write tomorrow… maybe. If they let us in.

  25. Your crap joke for a cloudy Sunday evening:

    Three women go down to Mexico one night, get drunk, and wake up in jail, only to find that they are to be executed in the morning, though none of them can remember what they did the night before.The first one, a redhead, is strapped in the electric chair, and is asked if she has any last words. She says, “I am from Grace University, and believe in the almighty power of God to intervene on the behalf of the innocent,” They throw the switch and nothing happens.They all immediately prostrate themselves; beg for her forgiveness, and release her.The second one, a brunette, is strapped in and gives her last words, “I am from the Creighton School of Law and I believe in the power of justice to intervene on the part of the innocent.” They throw the switch and again, nothing happens.Again, they all immediately prostrate themselves; beg for her forgiveness, and release her.The last one, a blonde, is strapped in and says, “Well, I’m from the University of Alabama, Huntsville and just graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering, and I’ll tell you right now, you ain’t gonna electrocute nobody if you don’t plug this thing in.”

  26. So in spite of Lo Pan’s warnings, she somehow found a bottle of Voodoo Bacon Maple Doughnut Pine Cone Fish Batter Pink Bottle Elk Jerky Muddy Stick Smoke Monster Ale from Rogue. The smoke overwhelms, but I actually don’t hate it. I don’t think she is a fan.

    Cranky Disclaimer: we fucking drink responsibly.

    • I agree. I thought, from the previews, that Walken’s character was going to be the typical crazed-lack-of-morals ruthless-but-funny kind of character that he tends to play. I was extremely pleased to see where they took things. Fantastic movie.

  27. People are stupid.

    All schools in Calgary have been closed for the week which means an early summer break start. Except for grade 12 diploma exams. Those have been moved to schools that are not in flood zones.
    The flak hubby has been getting. But not the kind you’d expect. The trouble is from the parents of grade 10 & 11 students. Final exams are usually worth 40% of your grade. This year, since no exams are happening, your grade is where it stood to this point. Parents feel this is unfair as they were hoping the exams would bring up their child’s grade. He also got an email from a parent whose child wrote their exam in January. Their grade was brought down by the exam so this parent felt those exams marks should be disallowed since this semester’s kids marks won’t be affected by exams.

    Really people?

  28. That being said, hubby should actually be home at a reasonable time today. The school his grade 12 diploma’s are at is only about 10 – 15 minutes away from home. Simple pleasures and all that :cheerful:

  29. In makes you wonder news. The zoo only lost one peacock, all the tilapia in one tank and all its’ piranha. Strange how the piranha didn’t make it but most of the other fish did. The zoo said it was because power was off and proper environmental conditions couldn’t be maintained.

    • That seems to be Millar’s sentiment as well. I think his response was fantastic. There is nothing in the script of the final production that wasn’t there when Carrey agreed to the role. It looks like Carrey is back peddling and I think he will come out looking worse for it.

    • Dude, it was bang bang. I missed the game winner completely. Tho my drink is delish.

      I’m torn. Im glad an east coast team didnt win, but the Hawks probably have the worse fan base in the NHL (well, with the exception of the Kings). Ah well. Im glad for Kane. Hims good kid.
