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.

Nice track n field vibe for today’s google doodle:
Just remember to hit the play button to start.
A rather pathetic 14.7 seconds
well you did better than me. 18.2s
After 3 tries I got it down to 14.5 seconds. First attempt was horrible at 19.8 seconds.
Wait, there’s an unshow on a day I actually have time to do show notes? Jack and I really have to get our schedules synchronized.
Boy, it sure does take some extra grease in these joints to get my day going lately.
Happy Happy, Pan!
*sigh* That is all.
Still recovering from all that weed we smoked last night, Jack. …second hand.
Yes, I think the people behind us had misinterpreted the song, “Aces High.”
Or “Wasted Years” even.
Sounds like it was a great show then!
Maiden before Deadpan. Priorities. Jack Haz Them.
The biggest problem with a two day work week is I have no motivation to actually work. I’m sitting at my desk trying to find a bunch of reasons why I shouldn’t be here.
Rudy Rucker has released all his short stories online:

“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.”

That was great, but did you guys see this one? Unintentional penis illusions:
I see your unintentional penis illusions and raise you awkward boners:
All of the sudden I find myself in love with the world, and so theres only one thing I can do… is ding a ding dang my dang along ling log
Hey guys, I’ve been mad busy! What have you been talking ab. . . .
*slowly backs out the door*
Back to school stuff purchased (because someone’s gotta do it). . . Bags packed, lunches made. . . . Holy crap, it’s 11:58.
Sewage works causing traffic jam.
Perfect for vehicles with no a/c and a warm day..
Looks like it’s going to be another hot day today.
“God did not intend for this unnatural lifestyle”.
Neat. Did he intend for you to be a an un-supportive dick, dad?
If your abode has central air, you’re living an unnatural lifestyle.
What is more hilarious is that nature itself, can’t live up to this expectation.
A few more.
They don’t call nature wild for nothin’.
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?
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.
Not a bad person, but you’re missing some fun contests!
Maybe tonight I’ll turn it on and see what I’m missing.
I’m right with you CJ. I didn’t watch the opening ceremonies or any of the events. I just don’t have any interest.
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. 🙂
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.
I’m a sports fan, so take my comments with that in mind. If you’re not, you may just not be interested.
Anyhow . . .
I prefer the Winter Olympics, but I’ve followed some of the events.
And I rather enjoyed the opening ceremony.
I really like Winter as well. I’ve enjoyed the indoor volleyball, especially men’s, track & field, and most everything. I also LOVE to watch water polo. The athleticism in that sport is really something to see.
I’m loving it. Been a lot of good moments. And awful ones.
Awful = the commentators. Rowdy who does swimming? I would love to kick him in the nuts.
You and me both.
CP: Who Needs Information — Roger Waters
Forever and ever. Amen.
And this is why I don’t trust Carbonite or other cloud data services:
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!
OK, once more into the breach.
Not K01 or K02 it seems.
Phew, I don’t get to see them take the piss out of my childhood memories.
Aw. It almost made me smile. Play it again!
I hope they don’t make this TOO faithful to the book, otherwise, it will be 2 hours of Rico sitting around, philosophizing about citizenship and social structures.
If only he had a form 27b/6. Sad indeed.
I’ve always been a fan.
Huh. I didn’t know Dinosaur Jr. was back together.
Sleeping in on a Thursday is fine.
House/pet sitting gives you insomnia. Watching Toddlers with Tiaras during said insomnia gives you nightmares when you do fall asleep. #thingsnottodoagain
Well, must get dressed off to the airport for the fifth time this month. I’m really getting to know the place.
CP: The Wanting Comes in Waves / Repaid — The Decemberists
I meant to correct Jack on this word.
Jack, I lived in Pueblo, CO for 7 years, and people do in fact say “opps”. They also say “EEEEEEEEEEasy” and “I know, HUH.”
Whopp, there it is!
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?’
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.’
Such a long drive for such a dead end…
*fishes around for some kind of coat*
Perhaps you’d like to buy a better joke?
Oh, my . . .
If two people are more made for each other… I dunno who it would be. Sluts. Heh.

The Scouts’ drill and horns just blew me away. Bravo!

I believe in Santa again after that show! Great job, Cadets.
CW: Phantom Regiment (Rockford, IL) DCI
Elegent show, Phantom. That is the best adjective.
CW: Carolina Crown (Fort Mill, SC) DCI
Ive been waiting all season for this one, folks!
: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.
WOW. just wow, Carolina Crown.
Mad respect. loved the timpani drums too!!
CW: Blue Devils (Concord, CA) DCI
Blue Devils– abstarct, intense, crazy-good.
Also hurt my brain.
“Dada self-destructed when it was in danger of becoming “acceptable”.”
So Dadaists were the first hipsters?
Welp… Ive contributed my comment wuota, Pan. Thanks for letting me indulge.
Say Good night, Pixie.
I kinda love this meme:
Ummmmm… I was just about to come on here and post that.
Jack Mangan… Mckayla is not impressed with your taste in memes
Two! Minutes! To Miiiiiidnight….
Yep. still blissfully 12 years old.
Oh yeah! We need an Earbuddies Forever volunteer. I’ve had one odd number waiting patiently to be partnered off with someone.
You can buddy me, Jack
More tests, sigh.
Ummmmm… This is *not* how I expected to feel when I woke up today.
/long way to go 🙁
Possibly old news for some:
Yeah, it was only a matter of time. Yet another reason to use two-factor authentication.

Hey you! Don’t watch that. Watch This.
Did you miss a link or were you being artistic?
…na, I’d like to buy a vowel.
I was merely quoting lyrics from the song. Not literally saying to watch something.
What is that heavy heavy monster sound? It’s the nutsiest sound around.
Alas these days my memory has more holes than swiss cheese.
That is cheese with eyes and not cheese that is blind.
Somewhere I have the version where they sing it in Italian: Un Passo Avanti

Its 109 degrees outside & my electricity just went out.
And of course, I bought an entire fridge/freezer worth of food today.
/please hurry Maintenence Guy.
phew! back online. Dinner is cooking and all is well.
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.
Aww I took 3 kiddos down there myself. Would have been fun to run into you.

Just stay away from the cheese puffs.

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..!
I will not give that joke the clap.
Stop being crabby
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.
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.
The “Snakes on a Plane” for 2012? Except less disappointing?
I’ve had it with these motherf*ckin snakes on this motherf*ckin plane, so bring on motherf*ckin Shaft in the motherf*ckin kung fu golden fist movie
I can’t. It’s cloudy here. Grrrrr. We haven’t gotten rain in weeks and it is cloudy. Tonight. Of all nights. We better get some rain. 🙁
ditto, ditto. But you know what? Right now I’ll happily say fuck the meteor shower for these current rain showers. Hopefully coming your way
Nothing here except a few drops. 🙁
Cloudy here as well.
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.
Enjoying the new phone. Samsung Galaxy SII.
Now if only I had seen this before looking on Facebook..

Looking like Walt is getting a bad case of manifest destiny.
Hey, no breaking Breaking Bad bad news.
Quick iPod check:
Tracks with the word “name” in them: 19
Finally done with pills from hell.
Pretty much! 🙂
I initially read that as piles from hell.
Well, I guess this is a good a way to get back into the swing as anything:
So, what do I win?
The strangely recurring Ed theme. 😉
Ed From Texas?
Well done, London 2012. Well done
I too applaud their efforts.
It helps that I had really low expectations.
Closing ceremony had me at Madness.
I haven’t watched it yet. I see they are selling the soundtrack for the closing ceremony too.
OK, I hope everyone survived the week intact. Including our over-achieving Bunny.
One more thing:
These people needed to call in for the “Deadpan is the Way” project we ran a few years ago:
Well I’m tempted:
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’.”
Indeed, you get what it says on the tin.
Is that what “Tin Type” means?
It appears not.
The tin eaten by the goat?
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.
It’s clear here in Glendale, but I’ll be driving into the Metro in a few minutes. Generally they aren’t much more disruptive than driving through a storm.
Oh, good. Thanks!
How’s Omaha treating you?
So far, so good. The worst thing that’s happened to me so far is that I locked my keys in my car, but a coworker helped me out of that situation. (I was in the parking lot at work.) Overall, I like it here so far. I’m still working on getting settled in.
He he… he he… he he. She said “haboob”
Made it to work, no sign of the haboob. Situation normal.

Naff but cute:
Haboobs can be treacherous if you’re on the road, but really, they’re most impressive in those aerial exterior shots. On the inside, it’s just a bunch of dust blowing around.
Unlike Hoojibs, who can be a great ally when facing a Slivilith.

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!!!

DEW you wanna BACK that up?
I’ll take Critical Care Neurology for $200, Alex.
bleh…. Its an all-afternoon/all-night study session, folks.
Speaking of “Thanks ladies!!”
“Durex has been the Olympics’ official provider of jimmy hats since the 1992 Barcelona games, when athletes exhausted the entire supply of 100,000 gratis condoms. In Beijing, the condoms read “Faster. Higher. Stronger.” And the 150,000 free condoms distributed to the London athletes provide enough for each athlete to have sex 15 times over the course of 3 weeks.”
Apart from the Boxing teams.
Thats a lot of hooch…

Thanks to my Buddy for a thought-provoking tune.
Peace. Love. Not War.
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
In for a long, stressful night.
Hooray for Mondays.
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.
