Un to the Hills

This week’s Unshow will be silent, due to the Iron Maiden concert attended earlier tonight by myself and another Deadpanite.
We’ll be back next week with audio and a full-length episode!

In the meantime:
-Feel free to repost Greasy Comments from last week in this week’s thread.
-Record and send your Earbuddies content.
-Find a way to watch Buckaroo Banzai.

Now, pardon me, while I revel in being twelve years old again. . . just a bit longer.

:metal:

  1. “So I tell the swampdonkey to sock it before I give her a trunky in the tradesman’s entrance and have her lick me yardballs.”

  2. Today’s Google Doodle is a playable basketball game. I got 27 baskets for 2 gold medals. Dammit Google! Don’t you realize I have work to do?

  3. Am I a bad person for not having turned the TV on during the Olympics?

    And nope. Not watching it on my computer either.

    I feel like I’ve been unamerican or something.

  4. I watch a lot last week in the evening while on vacation. However, since Teresa is out of town on business, I played 4 hours of Mass Effect 3 last night. :)

  5. My husband has had it on lots. Pretty much from 8am until I come out of the office and make him change the channel (around 3). I just don’t understand.

    I have the ipad app. I can find out everything I want with that.

  6. Holy crap, I made it here! I won’t be able to stay, however. Two things:

    Advertisers must stop saying shit like “Go for the gold”, trying for weak tie-ins to the Olympics.

    Holy crap, there are full uploads of otherwise out-of-print MST3K episodes on Youtube!

    Holy crap!

    OK, once more into the breach.

  7. House/pet sitting gives you insomnia. Watching Toddlers with Tiaras during said insomnia gives you nightmares when you do fall asleep. #thingsnottodoagain

  8. Crap joke for the day:

    A young New Zealand lad moved to London and went to Harrods looking for a job.

    The manager asked ‘Do you have any sales experience?’

    The young man answered ‘Yeah, I was a salesman back home in Wellington.’

    The manager liked the New Zealander so he gave him the job.

    His first day was challenging and busy, but he got through it.

    After the store was locked up, the manager came down and asked, ‘OK, so how many sales did you make today?’

    The New Zealander said ‘One!’
    The manager groaned and continued, ‘Just one? Our sales people average 20 or 30 sales a day.

    How much was the sale for?’
    ‘£124,237.64p.’
    The manager choked and exclaimed £124,237.64!!
    What the hell did you sell him?’

    ‘Well, first I sold him a small fish hook, then a medium fish hook and then I sold him a new fishing rod.’

    ‘Then I asked him where he was going fishing and he said down at the coast, so I told him he would need a boat, so we went down to the boat department and I sold him that twin-engine Power Cat.’

    ‘Then he said he didn’t think his Honda Civic would pull it, so I took him down to car sales and I sold him the 4×4

    The manager, incredulous, said, ‘You mean to tell me…a guy came in here to buy a fish hook and you sold him a boat and a 4×4?’

    ‘No, no, no… he came in here to buy a box of tampons for his lady friend and I said…

    ‘ Well, since your weekend’s buggered, you might as well go fishing.’

  9. :jack: can vouch for me. I know how to rollerskate. I’ve been taking the kids a lot lately… and tonight was the first time I’ve fallen in well over a decade.

    My wrist and shoulder are sprained and my elbow bruised. I also landed, of course, on my right knee which is already damaged and under doctor’s care. Whoops!

    I feel so accomplished and tough right now!! I’m kinda proud of my wounds. I shall now go lick them.

  10. Came home, all set to eat and do this Nerdvanacon event, which features (omg!) a Buckaroo Banzai screening!

    …. And then we woke up from our 2+ hour nap… way too late for the movie.

    What a drag it is getting old.

  11. Crap joke for the day:

    I felt a bit uneasy watching the women’s weightlifting today. The judge kept saying some of the girls snatches were cleaner than others..!

  12. So, since we couldn’t see a cheesy 80s sci-fi flick last night, we went to see a remake of a cheesy 80s sci-fi flick last night. Total Farrell was better than the Schwarznengneliegenheimer one, at least…. Fun action, fantastically realized world — taken directly from Bladerunner — and laughable plot. There ya go.

  13. So that’s a thumbs up for almost 50 year old wiring with Bakelite switches.

    The two Powerline adaptors I recently purchased appear to be working, extending my home network via the electricity supply.

  14. We drove out of the light pollution to a few spots in North Scottsdale. In addition to hearing a pack of coyotes mauling something nearby, we saw about 10 meteors. We’d probably have seen more if not for the haze and clouds.

  15. Well, I guess this is a good a way to get back into the swing as anything:

    name: 15
    wall: 10
    enemy: 6
    war: 95
    happy: 17
    krinkle: 0

    So, what do I win?

  16. A crap joke for the day:

    A psychiatrist is addressing a group of people who have all had experiences with the supernatural. He asks: “Who here has seen a ghost?” Everyone puts up their hands. He then asks: “Who here has spoken with a ghost?” Half the audience puts up their hands. “And who here has touched a ghost?” Ten percent of the crowd puts up their hands. He asks: “And who here has made love with a ghost?” One little man in the back row puts up his hand… The psychiatrist looks down from the podium at the little man and says: “Do you mean to tell me that you have made love with a ghost?” The man replies, “Oh No! I’m sorry. I couldn’t hear you correctly. I thought you said ‘goat’.”

  17. The Weather Channel (which is on our TVs at work) reports a haboob in the Phoenix metro area. Can we get an eyewitness report? (How dangerous/disruptive are they?)

    Cloudy and cool here in Omaha; it’s supposed to clear up this afternoon.

  18. There was a great disturbance in the Force last night. Teresa used the AT-ST to pick off all my good rebel soldiers and in the rematch, Vader struck down his son Luke. Nooooo!!!

    *star wars minis*

  19. Confused. Daughter finally wants Minecraft. Been trying to purchase for an hour now thru Paypal and a pre-paid Visa and it refuses to go thru due to various errors. Do they really not want peoples money? Cause for one of the “top selling games evar” their payment system is extremely dumbtarded

  20. My kids are addicted to Minecraft. They know all the youtube songs.

    It’s weird to hear them singing songs by Katy Perry and Ke$ha with all the wrong words.
