Then maybe some day you can become a real boy.
Harsh but fair.
I could have ponytails.
That’s not working for me Lo.
I forgot, your a pigtail kind of guy
I plan to pioneer the mullet pony tails look.
Or, more likely as I get older, the skullet pony tails look.
I knew a guy once who used to call them handlebars
handlebar is for bicycles and moustaches.
Oh Van you naive and wonderful man…
I get it, something to hang on too as you poke the fire.
Oh… bless you sir!!!
CW: Hindsight E1
A certain ‘Life on Mars’ vibe for weddings.
The soundtrack is better than the plot.
So, Jack and I watched Vikings S1:E2.
I can believe what barbarians these guys are!!!!!!!!!!
I dont know if I can root for them, but I want to keep watching.
I have three favorite characters. You’ve met at least two by now. There are some you root for more than others.
We should probably watch Erik the Viking instead.
I love Erik the Viking.
GOUT IS GOLD!
No wait, that’s ‘Pirates’
After packing a lot of books away tonight I appreciate my kindle app so much more.
It’s not just Dr Who:
2 Days in the Valley has one of best woman vs woman fight sequences in a film, check it out before it’s gone.
I think they will renew, but really do want to finish Dr. Who before just in case.
I loved “2 Days in the Valley”.
Some wonderfully weird performances as I recall.
James Spader made an excellent villain.
I despair I really do.
To be fair, all those who passed while wearing clothes of mixed fibers in clear contridiction to Deuteronomy 22:11
were turned away from the church as well.

Oh AND the asscock took the money. What a fucking shittard.
It’s way too easy for shitty people to be shitty people.
Is it just me or is this just a bunch of pretentious schlock?
A pretentious AV Club article?!
I actually read that one, and I’d agree with you. Some solid points made about VH and especially DLR, but the author doesn’t seem to know the material as well as he thinks he does.
I agree he made some good points. It’s fair to say VH was influential, but I think the author went too far in placing blame.
Don’t even get me started on this article.

Is that kids are calling it these days.
Back to our Vikings doscussion:
1. Ragnar is the lovechild between Brad Pitt & Charlie Hunnam
2. Ragnar’s “brother” is a beefed up version of Jared Leto
3. I have a girl crush Mrs. Ragnar – warrior princess
4. Damn Vikings, raping and plundering!
Yes, Lagertha is pretty awesome. She’s character fav 1 for me. RE: Mrs Ragnar the shield maiden. Katheryn Winnick is a pretty lady. I noticed her again while watching House Ssn 3.
Floki and Athelstan are my other fav characters.
Doesn’t make looking at the other boys interesting though.
Waiting for you to finish Season 1 though…. more discussion will be pending.
She’s quite athletic that KW:
I made it to 2:03 then I had to stop. I just… I had to stop…

Happy birthday, Jack!
Have a super, duper, wonderful birthday, Jack!
Facebook tells me it’s Jack’s Birthday today. Have a great one.
Hoy hoy birthday boy!
Happy Happy Day of Birth, Jack Mangan.
Love ya to the Moon and back again!

Happy Birthday Jack Kramden, er Mangan!
Thanks, everyone! Now I’m officially in my 40s. Last year didn’t count.
Happy bday, bro.

Crap joke for the day:
A woman on her death bed asks her husband to rush home and get a wooden box out from under their bed. The man retuns home, gets the box out from under the bed and opens it to find 3 eggs and $7000.00 in cash.He returns to the hospital and asks his wife: “Honey, why are there 3 eggs and $7000.00 in cash?” She replied: “Well, over our 35 years of marriage whenever we had bad lovemaking I would put an egg in the box.” So, immediately the husband thought of himself as a love machine.And he asked her then: “Well, what is the money for?” And she replied: “Every time I got a dozen eggs I sold them!!!!”
Walter White, killed people, sold meth, and I was always rooting for him.
FYI and yikes!
Well they guessed wrong this year and the vaccine is much less effective than usual.
Sometimes I really wonder why I read the AV Club.
I didn’t even start
The majority of AVC articles are smart and insightful with clever humor about interesting subjects, whether they’re essays, features, or news bytes. That’s why I keep going back, in spite of the sometimes unbearable hipsterism.
I used to check them a lot more frequently when I had more downtime during the day. Not so much these days.
There are plenty of times that I really enjoy reading AVC articles. I guess lately I’ve just run into more that have rubbed me the wrong way, like the one above. The article is just a red herring. His misunderstanding of the series may even be unintentional. In any case, it seems to me that he hasn’t played the games in depth so his argument is off base.
CP: Rock This Joint — Alannah Myles
WTMF’nF!??!ArizonaSports.com: The ARIZONA COYOTES have traded G DEVAN DUBNYK to Minnesota for a third-round pick – http://bit.ly/1u52oIh
Trade away the one and only bright spot of this season for nothing?
And we’re supposed to believe that management isn’t intentionally sabotaging this team?
Well, we wouldn’t been able to keep him past this season anyways, and we had a snowball’s chance in hell to make the playoffs. But I am sort of bothered that they’ve seemed to right off the second half of the season.
Why wouldn’t we be able to keep him past this season?
I was reading some report earlier in the week that said something along the lines that because of the money they invested in Smith for a 6 year contract, it was likely that the Yotes wouldn’t be able to fight off a competing bid next year.
So say we all:
Though, I disagree with calling the episode a pilot.
So Six we all.
Isn’t that their goal?
Yeah, they ruin everything. And never get tired of it.
I lie on couch.
Dog snuggles on couch, beside me.
Cat snuggles on couch, on my side and on top of dog.
5 minutes later, I have dog AND cat stretching all four of their paws outward, and into MY side!
There ya have it, One minute I’m God’s gift to snuggle land and then next, I’m being shoved off of my couch!
Such is the life of pet owner.

I’m off to the office today, I will ask if I can keep a couple of weeks unallocated till later on in the year, but considering what happened last year, even if they agree to that do doesn’t mean it will actually happen.
Foxcatcher was rather interesting in a descent into madness kind of way.

Hooray! For Grand Budapest Hotel and Wes Anderson nods!
I havent seen many of this year’s nominees, so I am a bit biased towards the Grand Budapest Hotel.
Im upset Keeanu was snubbed…. again
I’ve snubbed the Oscars for years. 😀
But on the plus side Keanu is on track to be best Doll of 2015.
I could have sworn he was the front-runner for the “Best Vacant Expression” category.
I’ve placed my bets, time will tell where the chips fall.

BEST ORIGINAL SONG
“Everything Is Awesome” from The Lego Movie, Shawn Patterson
ditto have you heard the new Dead Sara track ‘Mona Lisa’ yet?
Its ok. But I love their first album so much I’m scared of a big time sophomore slump
No, I haven’t. Hopefully it isn’t representative of the new album.
Not that I can see. The song is just kinda…boring
On the other hand, the new Sleater-Kinney is FUCKING exquisite
I’m not a fan of this Easter candy, but some of you might enjoy this:

Well, it’s official. Target Canada is declaring bankruptcy and closing every one of its stores here in Canada.
Well, Target has never been known for their large assortment of tooks, smokes or back bacon.
I think I mentioned it when we were in Colorado but, shortly after Target came to Canada they fired the CEO of Target Canada and issued an apology for taking Canadians for granted. Obviously they didn’t learn from that.
Target in Canadian French translates to “I need to make a Walmart run, but I fucking hate Walmart.”
(Actually, that’s what it means in American English too.)
Definitely would have thought them too big to fail.
Its not the cities its the weather we love

Yup, I think this year US and UK dates are the same.

I’m attempting to be present in the scrolling. Though, I should be working and am in need of a shower.
Hubby’s daddy is coming to town to visit hubby’s grandmother. So today’s schedule will be:
Clean the guest room (the bed is currently covered in books)
Clean the guest washroom
Clean the main washroom (I do this one every Friday so… *shrug*)
I’ll probably be hit and miss for the next little while.
Best wishes to your family, Bunny. We’ll be here for moral support.
There, once the bedding is done in the wash and I can make the bed, I’ll have one clean guest room.
Now to tackle the washrooms!
I’m all hot and sweaty. I may need to hop in the shower once all is said and done.
..and chuck a bucket of water over any ogling males.
Beagle 2 finally found:
Considering the flack Colin Piliger got after the failure, pity he’s not around to see that it could have happened to any probe landing on Mars.
It will be an archaeological find for some future civilization. Maybe even ours.
And then that civilization will form their own “ancient aliens” conspiracy theories.

I KNEW it you asshole!
It was free, and 22 minutes in I’m not wanting to throw bricks at the screen like I want to do with Bladerunner.
But they bugger off with the unicorn reference.
Other than that, thought that was good.
I plan on watching and enjoying as, instead of throwing bricks at Blade Runner, I threw my love
Just remember to wipe the screen after viewing.
I hadn’t heard dick about this before you guys mentioned it. I’ve never read this Dick, so the differences wouldn’t bother me.
The novel (or short story for you young hipsters) is quite mainstream for PKD. the only really weird bit is when a piece of Fink’s jewellery is overanalysed by the main Japanese guy.
Well worth checking out.
I told hubby I wanted this shirt. He just shook his head at me.
Has anyone here kept up with Gotham? Should I reinvest in it as I gave up after ep 3…
I’ve been keeping up. It’s been hit and miss. I prefer the episodes with Alfred in them.
It’s being cancelled it that helps with your decision.
Maybe not. I heard somewhere it was being cancelled but can’t see it when I googled.
As Cynful said, it’s pretty hit and miss. You definitely have to park your “that doesn’t make sense” meter at the door when watching.
I’ve enjoyed it so far, hadn’t read it was in trouble.
When did “Sup Babe” become a conversation heart? They had them at the market when I stopped and they’re always better fresh.
And just to prove I don’t have a problem with everything AVC has been putting out lately, here’s their review of Person of Interest’s If-Then-Else episode. 🙂
Definitely agree on that review. I fell away from the show for a few years while my wife kept up with it. I’ve been back on board these last couple of seasons as it has turned into what could be a true prequel to the Terminator universe.
If-The-Else was indeed some epic television. Almost surprising that it’s a major network show.
I know. Some great SF on TV and it was stealthily snuck in.
I’m a little disappointed with SyFy’s trailer for Expanse. It looks kind of cheap compared to what I read. But I’ll still give it a chance. Anyone else read the first book?
I may go onto more detail later, but as has been shared here before: fucking cancer.
Re-watched “Edwards Scissorshand” tonight. First time in about a decade.
Still makes me weepy.
Remember when we used to love Tim Burton and it was okay to admit it?
Also, I now suspect that between this film and Beetlejuice, Tim Burton may be mostly responsible for bringing “Goth” to middle class, suburbia, teen culture.
Of all his films, those two are my fav.
Insert Roaming Asshat Tim Burton/remake/reinvisioning/reimagining speech here. You all know the routine by now. Just take it as read.
Speaking of which, looks like we dodged a major bullet. At least for the moment.
To this day, he is the only director I’ve taken direction from.
If you ever get to Scotland:
Going to Scotland period is on my 100 things list…
Agreed; fuck cancer
Lo- we also gave up on Gotham after 3. We are about that far behind on this season of SHIELD and now are sad given EJO joining the show.
Well S2 of Agents of S has been good so far.
Agreed. Im glad I didnt give up mid season 1. Season 2 flys by. Really well done all around. You get on it!
Now you better be watching Agent Carter…
NSFW for language
We’ve been trying to fly thru the last season of Torchwood before they take it off Netflix. We have 3 eps to go. WTF is with this season? It fluctuates between some of the best Torchwood ever (which admittedly isnt hard) and some of the worst tv ever.
I lost interest part way through the season.
One wonders. I stuck it out … and I guess “on average” I would say I was glad.
I think Ill feel the same.
CW: 12 Monkeys E1
I haven’t tried it. I’m interested in what you think.
It ditches some of the things that made the film great (there is no doubt that Cole is a time traveller).
The cast are not outstanding, but think I’ll watch a few more episodes to see how it plays out.
Yep. Fuck cancer.
A friend of ours is going through law school. As part of the course the have to be part of a mock trial. Today, hubby got to be a witness at a mock murder trial. It took place at the courthouse in front of a real judge. He was questioned by the “prosecutor” and then cross-examined by the “defence”. He came home saying it was one of the coolest things he did. I’m sorry I couldn’t go.
But Gotham got renewed.
I agree. Katrina (cough)
dem hips tho
I had forgotten what an interesting read the original ‘Secret Weapons of the Luffwaffe’ manual was.
You have to admit, Van, theat season 2 has so far been a minor clusterfuck – especially after the brilliant first season. Im all for changes and tweaks if it means renewal potential.
It was certainly strange to kill Mollloch off so soon.
Oh you really believe it’s dead?
Annnnd I dunno what this has to do with the Luftwaffe…. es tut mir lied!
Just make sure you have at least 590k of ram free…
Shit. Then Im out
I am all for the X-Files reboot if it means getting to forget that awful series finale. The last not-great movie was 100000 times better than the finale was.
I did enjoy the Terminator/Gish team up though.
Right, as a whole the final season was actually really good… just that last ep…
Thinking about You amd yours, Cynful.

Every few years this shit happens…
Yeah. Why is this news. Most astronomers have said this for a long time, not that it really means anything.
Right. Isnt a giant hunk of ice the same as a tiny hunk of ice?
Or ghosts generated by the data analysis, it’s happened before.
Yep. Kind of like Van says. If they are tracking the same orbit(ish), it will appear like a planet. It’s the same reason we can treat the regular planets as a point-source of gravity. That’s why it’s important to get visual confirmation.
Just based on probability, there are probably a small number of planet-sized objects out there, hundreds if not thousands of dwarf sized objects, and countless smaller objects. It was one of the reasons many astronomers used to argue against Pluto being considered a planet and why “clearing its orbit” was an important part of the planet rule.
CW: Mad Dogs (us pilot)
billy Zane is getting on a bit.
The 90s tried so hard to make us love him.
I don’t understand why we can detect exoplanets but still don’t know if there are planets past Pluto. Do we need some nearsighted telescopes?
They use indirect methods to detect exoplanets which are not applicable to looking for objects past Pluto.
yet still within out solar system.
Two “simple” detection methods are: 1) detect variations in the light of a sun and 2) detect the wobble of a sun. That lets you know planets are circling that sun and then there are sophisticated calculations and analysis you can do on light, etc to determine the makeup of that planet.
Big problem with detecting planets past Pluto… no convenient sun. It’s dark out there and they are really small objects.
Did the local Cult Classics viewing of Temple of Doom tonight. . . Yes, I know. . . The movie has flaws, but it’s also a helluva fun ride. I’d forgotten just how much fun.
One of my nieces when little, loved that film and would shout out ‘no more parachutes!’
I can’t begin to describe how awesome it would be if this comment was attached to the “Only in Florida” post below.
Can “Only in Florida” be our ne tagline?
Truly a great one. I know everyone loves Last Crusade (as do I) but this is the superior film
I wouldn’t go that far, but certainly superior to the Crystal Skull.
I kept falling asleep during that one, so I guess that doesn’t rank very high for me.
I would. Its a much better story.
I rank them as #1, #3, #2……………………………. #4.
Only in Florida:
Should I start reading the Walking Dead graphic novel series or will it only tick me off having watched the first season and half of the second?
It ruined the show for me due to it being far superior. But thats just me
I just saw the number of issues and realised life was too short.
Yet you seem to have time to watch every tv show and film man ever since the history of ever!!
Wait till you hit 48!
“When 900 years old you are……etc”
Well you have the time to read TWD I don’t.
Its not that hard, man
I still haven’t watched S3 of TWD
I’m not sure I’d go that far. They both have strong and weak points. But, I think I’d recommend watching the show first that way you can enjoy it on its own merits. And there will still be plenty of surprises in the GN.
Again, I can easily go that far due to the fact that there is so much more they could do and did much better in the comic. Cant say more without spoiling.
I’ve decided hospitals suck. I’m hoping I can get out of hospital duty tomorrow
Back at home. Much better.
Well, that was an impressive comeback. Hopefully there’s a happy camper in Seattle.

I’m not sure if CBS is serious or just trolling this playoff game.
it will be like Scorpion with even less realism.
Re-watched Hell Baby last night. Hard to believe a) that that movie was so damn funny and b) that most people are not even aware it exists.
This article is quite relevant for hubby’s current situation.
I find the internet bad for this. The doctor has given a few options for John’s grandmother. Each of the three children have made their own decisions on what would be best and have taken to the internet. All came away with articles, studies, etc. that proves their point of view is the correct one.
ok, this was actually in reply to Jack’s post, not Hell Baby. Obviously not awake this morning.
You’re entitled to some moments of weariness when you’re in the trenches.
A little bit of work
Take Jack to the hospital (hubby’s daddy’ name is Jack)
Get some chili going in the slow cooker
Change kitty litter
Pick up Jack from the hospital.
I need to do some laundry today too but not sure when as the guest room is right next to the laundry room. Hopefully I can sneak in a load or two while Jack is at the hospital.
I’ve decided I’m glad I’m an only child. This family squabbling can be rather exhausting.
It i*is* exhausting…. Until you just let go
Yeah. I’m sure but it’s not my squabbling. I just get to watch from the sidelines. Hubby finds it all confusing too. I don’t think he’s see that side of his dad/uncle/aunt before.
Even when there were no options for My Dad, the family still argued over how he was being treated.
Some people can’t fathom peaceful relations. Some people just want to watch the world burn.
Speaking of TV shows/reimaginings/continuations.etc: did anyone check out the 12 Monkeys pilot? I’m hearing good things.
Yup and still undecided, even after watching episode 2.
that didnt work at all…
D’oh! I missed that conversation. Sorry, my trench is pretty deep, atm.

Oh, no you didn’t

For a Bronco’s fan, figuring out who to root for is tough in this year’s SuperBowl. I’m gonna try and watch the game without a favorite, but MAN it’s hard to even respect the Patriots.
I’ll watch the commercials and fast forward through the game probably 🙂
Thankfully it’s not big over here so I can blissfully ignore it.
You mean there is a game? I just watch it for the commercials. 😀
Lesson learned from football commercials:
Life apparently consists of lovably dumb late-20s guys in jeans and nondescript t-shirts, with light 5 o’clock shadow and meticulously tousled short hair performing absurd actions because of attractive women, shitty beer, and/or trucks.
Agreed. I hate the Pats team but I really hate the Hawks (sorry Jeremy) super bandwagon fans. UGH. Can they both lose?
Tonight is a the night to be maudlin.

Where are we on the MMMmmmeetup planning? May? Sept?
I thought Sept was out, May hopeful, but it’s rather petered out.
At this point, a large lottery jackpot may be our best hope. My schedule would open up nicely in retirement.
ANnif you complain once more…
The months most responded to were May and October but the concern with the later date was being too close to your wedding. I’m not sure that date has been announced yet, but funds and travel are a concern if there are 2 meetups within 6-7 months. At least that’s how I perceived the convo
What they all said…
That’s how I remembered it. May is difficult here, but possible. Maybe we should proceed with talks for May.

How about switching discussion to email?
Sounds like a good idea.

archaic DB application!
It’s your new job title!
I read “new job tittie”
Other than the similar names, I’d never mistake you for an archaic DB application.
Besides, I realized after calling it “archaic” that the program has been used in IT functions since the late 90s, which is just as long as I’ve been used in IT functions.

WHY DID YOU MAKE ME WATCH THIS TWICE?!?!?!?!?
Evil Brit remember
Web comic fans: you have to try this fun superhero series especially for very inventive web techniques.
Today in family soap opera: hubby’s uncle and aunt have stopped talking to each other. Meanwhile, hubby’s grandmother has gone in to surgery this morning. Hubby’s daddy, who is really a nice person, comes home from the hospital and vents to me because hubby is still at work.
Never a fun position to be in.
Ummm. So we started watching the Constantine TV show. As a point of interest, I decided to see what Amazon had. Because I didn’t know much about the comic, I splelled Hellraiser as “Hell Raiser” (two words). This is the first thing that came up on Amazon. I think I’m scared now.
I think its HellBLAZER but in this case that’s neither here nor there…
With The Devil You Know sitting on my desk at work, I can confirm it is HellBlazer, but that is funny!
Oh I see the problem. It’s hell blazer, not hell raise. Silly me
Lo Pan – did you say you liked Spartacus? It’s one Netflix is adding to streaming in Feb.

I see Origin is giving away Theme Hospital. I really liked that game way back when. I think I’ll pick it up for nostalgia.
So, going back to my original comments: hellblazer, should I get them or not? This is sort of what I’m thinking of getting as a stater
Ok, I’ll pick it up. Although, little upset Comixology doesn’t sell them. At least, here in the Great White North, anyway
I read a fair bit quite some time ago. I enjoyed it. I’ve thought about going back and starting again myself. Of course, you are going back to a title started in the late 80s. In fact, it was a contemporary with Sandman. Not a problem imo, but something to keep in mind.
My basic opinion: horror-wise there’s nothing in Hellblazer that you haven’t seen before. The most interesting thing is Constantine himself and how his story ties everything together.
I have only read one Hellblazer GN, which was decent, but I’d be hesitant to recommend.
I got a “where to begin” list of titles from a huge fan. I haven’t delved into that list yet myself, but I can post it later, when I get a minute.
I’ve only read one, was ok didn’t get the urge to go and read more.
I can also bang rocks together.
Can you throw a bone into the air and have it turn into a spaceship?????
For you I’ll even hum the blue Danube.
I’ll dig out the 1812 Overture sheet music I have around here somewhere :p
So, Humble Bundle is trying card games this time. Anyone have an opinion on the games they are offering? Is it worth investing a few bucks?
Magic 2015 looks like a version of Magic the Gathering. Are these all deck building games and they are offering a bunch of starter packs that will serve merely to get your ass kicked against anyone you try to play with? They just did some comics sets like this that were chock full of Issue #1s rather than any meaningful sets.
I couldn’t see what you’re looking at RA. The link asks me to sign in. Is it something that can be found on Boardgame Geek? http://boardgamegeek.com/
Not that I can advise TRA, those sort of card games I never got into.
Ok, the Magic thing. The question I have are these physical cards or virtual cards for the Magic Web App? Either way, I’d say they are simply expansion Planeswalker cards to be added to the base set, or any other set. Planeswalkers are considered fairly high powered cards and are a good addition to any cards you may already have. If you don’t want to use them, you can usually get a decent price for them at most game stores that trade in Magic cards.
The reason I’m wondering about physical cards is because they have Dominion expansion sets. Hubby and I quite enjoy playing Dominion but, like the Magic Cards, it looks like you will need the base game.
Hope that helped *shrug*
I’ve played the Plainswalker version on the 360, which I think is the equivalent of Magic 2013. I haven’t played 2015 yet. As far as I know, all the cards are virtual and you can buy virtual expansion packs within the app.
I spoke to hubby. This is the Magic game on Steam. It is not part of Magic On Line or the Magic App. He said, that would normally run around $35. However, I looked on Steam and they seem to be selling it for about $11 plus Garruk’s Revenge add on which is $5.50. Hubby said, the good thing about this version is you can play against the computer, unlike Magic on Line which is PVP only. Therefore, that part of the Humble Bundle alone runs about $16.50. *shrug* So basically ignore my previous answer. That’s what I get for answering before I spoke to hubby who’s more up on this Magic stuff.
So, as I suspected, these are mostly collectible card games and this is the equivalent of a dealer giving you the first bump for free. Rather than getting a cool set of games that I can use on a regular basis (like a deck of Flux or a can of Zombie Dice) I would be getting something that I would have to build on ad nauseam. As Sheldon would say, they’re not giving me a gift, they’re giving me a responsibility. Think I’ll pass on this one. They tended to have impressive video game, audio book and digital book offerings. But, lately they’ve started migrating to packages like this one.
You can use it to tickle Lo.
For you Ill even hum Also Sprach Zarathustra
Elvis has left the building..
My god, it’s full of stars. . .
That’s what she said…
I hate rush my breakfast,
Okay, emailed everybody I coukd think of about the meetup.
On a better note… I watched the Season 6 premier of The Venture Brothers last night. It was phenomenal. I highly recommend it. However, it has become the kind of show where you really need to have watched the last season in order to get what’s going on. Adultswim.com is featuring it prominently (including a 5 minute epilogue) if anyone doesn’t have cable.
