Only two comments so far? You guys are really falling down on the job.
I plan to watch Blade Runner this afternoon. Van, did you want to get together to record as seems to be the norm for us?
Sure TEB, I’ll contact you to arrange a time.
UP to 5 now. ;)
Brought to you by the number 6
Its ok buddy. Its ok.
Did Van have a special relationship with 6? :)
Who knows. He’s Welsh.
*runs far far away*
I’m not a number…
I am a FREE MAN!
I grabbed my wallet because I wanted to do some on-line banking and I found a bag of M&M Peanuts in my purse. Bonus
CP: Watching With Ten Thousand Eyes — Ramin Djawadi
(Person Of Interest soundtrack)

2.we pick up EssBee
3.we go the The Joy Formidable show
4.you crash at my place
5.you return the next day.
Ill even buy your ticket ;). Plan! Great! Do it!
That’s on a Sunday, right? I’d have to drive there on Saturday and then drive back on Monday.
Details deeeetaillllls ;)
That made T laugh so hard. I *liiiiive* with the Queen of Details, as she puts it. ;)
Wasn’t that a Juice Newton song?
I hate you for what is now CPIMM
Playing with the queen of details,
While I read my emails.
The Lo Pan ain’t the only fool
who’ll do anything for you.
HA! Also, goddammit Rhett….
Funny how all anyone remembers about the 80s were the androgynous synth-pop musicians and Valley Girls. I recall country music culture all over TV and the movies.
That and orangutans. WTF was up with that??
“Right turn Clyde” POW!
Fuckashitpiss! You beat me to it.
Give me a call. We’ll see if I can make this work.
Sitting in Starbucks, overhearing the conversation of two young students.
One was explaining the pop cultural reference of ‘I find your lack of faith disturbing’ to the clueless other one.
Both were female….
I refuse to sit in Starbucks for anything. While they are not as busy as Tim Horton’s, I still refuse to mortgage my house just for a cup of coffee.
Ill join you for a cup, buddy.
My scanner is getting a work out today.
I hate opening packaging. It’s definitely and exercise in patience.
There’s probably a market for self opening packages.
Like “The Package” tour, coming to a town near you in 2013, featuring NKOTB/98 Degrees/Boyz II Men?
Never trust a big butt and a smile.
Think I found something else to do on Thursday when I have the rental car. South Mountain Park is only about a 25 minute drive from my hotel.
“From the park’s main entrance, you can drive up the Summit Road 5.5 miles to Dobbins Lookout and spectacular valleywide views or you can continue to the Gila Lookout for a view of the Gila River Valley.”
That’s one of the best-known, UH. Phoenix has scenic views and drives a-plenty, though.
In about half an hour I’m going to watch Blade Runner – The Final Cut.
Should I do a play by play?
Was that directed by Roger Waters? ;)
We actually have this special collector’s edition of Blade Runner. It is a small briefcase with a bunch of cool stuff like a little metal origami unicorn, pictures, a 3d thingie as well as 5 dvd’s with three or four versions of the movie as well as extras
I don’t have the ultimate collection, but I do have the discs only version on Blu-Ray and HD-DVD. Plus I have a bootleg laserdisc rip of the Centurion release of the Theatrical Version. I’m going to rewatch the Theatrical Version and then the Final Cut later next week.
I want to hear about all of that when you talk with Van!
I’m not sure how I feel about the PBP. I’d love to see one, but maybe not this week… Can you do the PBP offline, and we’ll post it with next week’s episode?
Umm. I can try. No promises, though. I usually do my pbp’s on the iPad
Not a great movie, but I plan on watching it again soon as well.
I remember that movie
Snake Pliskeen is a replicant.
This message brought to you via a Bluetooth tethered connection.
I thought he was dead?
I liked it.
I think we should stick to the “Bladerutger” for the upcoming Palooza, but I couldn’t help but think of some alternates.
“We not Replicants, we’re RepliCans!”
“That’s no Owl”
“There are no I’s in Father”
You see a podcast laying on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can’t. Not without your help. But you’re not helping.
Why am I not helping?
When have you helped? ;)
Right turn, Clyde.
Is it possible to download the theatrical release or have all previous versions been “Lucas-ed”?
In some respects I prefer the theatrical release as it muddies the waters over the ‘Deckard is a Replicant’ bullshit.
In most respects I prefer the Theatrical version, but we’re getting ahead of ourselves a bit. :)
You might check Netflix jOE, but apparently Amazon only offers “The Final Cut” as a download rental. There may be other means. *cough*
That’s it. We’re doing “Final Cut” starring Robin Williams instead.
I have all versions! I know that doesn’t really help you, J0e but.. just sayin’
I didn’t think all the versions of Blade Runner could be counted, let alone housed under one roof.
Panneypeople. I am in Phoenix this week and things are looking good for a micro meetup at Fate Brewery Friday night around 10pm. I know that’s late, but I will be working until around 9:30. If anyone can’t make it then and still wants to get together, let me know and we’ll see if we can figure something out.
Well, if it makes you feel better, I thought I had the “Final Cut”. I bought the 5 disc blu-ray set a few years ago (not the uber collector suitcase version). It’s supposed to have the Final Cut, Original US Release, Original international release, The directors abomination..er, cut, and also a copy of the “work print”.
The work print and final cut each had their own discs. I watched the final cut when I got it and remembered being quite unimpressed with the quality.
I went to watch it again for the palooza, an noticed that it was not giving me the lossless sound that it should have. After some sleuthing, I discovered that I was one of the unfortunate souls whose “Final Cut” disc actually contained the same work print as the work print disc.
So, I watched my prefered US Theatrical version instead. Though, I need to apparently call someone deep in the bowels of Warner Bros so they can send me a replacement disc.
Yes, I have all those and the briefcase with a toy hovercar
I was going to go with Colonial Mustard and the dinning room with a candlestick.
Oh, and if you guys need something to get that Juice Newton earworm out of your head, I’m happy to help…
Although I still have the VHS tape release of the international release.
It would appear snow fell at my place today…
Elevation : desert floor (maybe 2200 ft?)
Oh its so cuuuuuuuuuuuuute when yous all get excited about snow!
Its gotta be a fun little nightmare there tho :)
Had a great time with CJ and Lost Ralph eating mexican food and hanging out at the Old World Brewery. Fantastic people both. Thanks so much.
We feel the same about you!
You’re the “perfect” man after all!
Good company and the NOMS!
Photos or it didn’t happen
Netflix has a “Blade Runner: Theatrical & Director’s Cut” disc, and a Final Cut disc. I plan on watching them one after the other, and comparing them.
Mass quantities of snow are coming to Omaha starting at about 8:00 AM tomorrow and lasting through Friday. I’m prepared.
Good night, slush.
I wonder if that is the original theatrical release or the re-release.
Your crap joke for the day:
Well Wally gets home late one night and Linda, his wife, says “Where the hell have you been?” Wally replies “I was out getting a tattoo!”
“A tattoo”? She frowned. “What kind of tattoo did you get?”
“I got a hundred dollar bill on my privates” he said proudly.
“What the hell were you thinking”? She said, shaking her head in disgust. “Why on earth would a Chartered Accountant get a hundred dollar bill tattooed on his privates?”
“Well, one, I like to watch my money grow. Two, once in a while I like to play with my money. Three, I like how money feels in my hand. And, lastly, instead of you going out shopping, you can stay right here at home and blow a hundred bucks anytime you want.”
I don’t think he has taken into depreciation into account.
What if she doesn’t have a Yen for his dollar?
What if she’d prefer the Pound?
It might be a fair to say that I’m cold.
It’s definitely true.
I realize this morning that I failed to get a picture of Usedhair and LostRalph and myself beering it up.
Hubby played the hero this morning. A spider was on the living room floor trying to sneak up on me.
I’m going to purchase my airline ticket today. Before I do, I have a question. Is US Airways a good airline? I usually fly West Jet as they have amazing customer service but they seemed to have stopped their evening flights to Calgary from AZ and I’d have to take a 1pm flight home if I use them. I’m thinking of flying to Arizona via WestJet and taking the 7:30 US Airways flight home. (For some reason, this is actually $20 cheaper than flying round trip on either airline).
Please let me know if I’m going to regret flying US Airways before I book
I think I just hit a circle of life moment. Waaaaayyyy back when I was first on FaceBook I started the Fans of Deadpan FB Page. I dropped from FaceBook a few years ago. I’m now back on FB because I need to be for work and Cj just made me an administrator of the JMDP FaceBook page. It’s funny how life works
Bunny, US Air sucks, but pretty much rules the world of flying in Phoenix. (I’m flying Frontier, but am close and have access to that small airline.)
I’m checking other airlines now. May have more questions.
What about American Air?
Better than USAir, but don’t expect much!
and those two companies just combined to form a massive company.
By combining forces they hope to bring American’s service down to US Air’s standards … while simultaneously raising US Air’s prices to American’s level.
A win win for stockholders.
I kind of have a “they all suck” attitude toward airlines…
That said, I doubt if Southwest flies to Calgary, but they’re my preferred choice.
US Airways truly does suck.
I would advise you to avoid it.
It’s one of the worst! I also abhor American and United. The big airlines just don’t provide good service.
Ok. Talking about a work around with hubby. It turns out a flight on WestJet, my preferred airline, is less if I stay one extra day. Did the calculation and the difference is pretty close to the cost of a hotel for one night. May do that and hit the 10am flight on Tuesday.
Will keep you updated.
Who knew my trip would be such a production? I blame WestJet for changing their schedules from last year.
No Southwest to Calgary. Once Hubby is out of his meeting, we’ll come up with something. Honestly it’s just my thing. Van, Ditto, Mrs. Ditto, and I all had flights leaving at the same time on Monday so we sort of hung out together until dinner time. It would be nice to do the same again and, since WestJet changed their flight schedule, I have to work around that.
A 10:30AM flight would mean I’d have to be at the airport by 8:30 to fly internationally so I have to work around that.
Ok, Hubby says to stay the extra night. Booking my flight now.
Now I just have to hear back from Ditto on hotels. Personally I’m leaning towards the County Inn.
Silly on line registraion. I put myself as Mrs. Then it complained because I didn’t put in my gender.
Wow, that was… interesting but my flight is now booked for the mmmmmeetup
CP: Edge of Sports E241 on why hockey players are more inclusive than other pro-sports players.
Jack, Bunny: I <3 Southwest. One of the ways they keep prices low is by not participating in airfare-aggregating websites – you have to buy through their site. But hey, there is a savings, and drinks and bags are free!
Bunny: Mind if I crash the Monday afternoon/evening party? I have that half of the week off of work anyway, so I can afford to stay in Phoenix a little longer.
Kevin Smith also digs Southwest.
Between the wreck that’s Heaven sent
Between the choice I’d rather have
And at the end the Chapter goes
And now the finish in the start.
Quite the day.
Not a mistype of “quiet”, although it was that too.
That’s seems like a contradiction, but maybe it’s just getting hit on the head lessons.
I was looking up sonic showers, Star Trek you know, and came across this. Forget the ad itself, just look at the little picture that’s with the actual write-up and tell me what’s wrong with that picture? I’m not quite sure what they are trying to say in that picture. http://www.teuco.com/knowhow_hydrosonic
Fisting makes any advert better.
“depth: it penetrates approximately 2/3 cm beneath the epidermis”
If I take bath in this, someone will punch me in the ass?
I suppose if I had an ass like that, someone like me would want to punch me in the ass.
Amy, we didn’t really party last year. Ditto, Van, and I had planes leaving at around the same time so we just hung out together, had lunch, and went to a mall with an aquarium. It wasn’t overly exciting. However, in answer to your question, ditto has been a little hit and miss lately on both the boards and email. (I’m hoping he’s just busy) so I don’t know what his flight schedule will be. Otherwise, I don’t see why not if others don’t have an issue.
Crap joke for the day:
A man decides to have a face-lift for his birthday. He spends $5,000 and feels really good about the results. On his way home, he stops at a newsstand and buys a paper. Before leaving, he says to the sales clerk, “I hope you don’t mind me asking, but how old do you think I am?” “About 35,” was the reply. “I’m actually 47,” the man says, feeling really happy. After that, he goes into McDonalds for lunch and asks the clerk the same question. The reply is, “Oh, you look about 29″. “I am actually 47.” Later, while standing at a bus stop, he asks an old woman the same question. She replies, “I am 85 years old, and my eyesight is going. But when I was young, there was a sure way of telling a man’s age. If I put my hand down your pants and play with your balls for 10 minutes, I will be able to tell you your exact age.” As there was no one around, the man thinks, What the hell and lets her slip her hand down his pants. Ten minutes later, the old lady says, “Okay, it’s done. You are 47.” Stunned, the man says, “That was brilliant. How did you do that?” The old lady replies, “I was behind you at McDonalds….
This joke brought to you by the Big Mac Happy Meal.
special sauce, lettuce, cheese…
UGH… pickled onions?
Time to clean the bathroom!
I have to clean my virtual eyes after reading Van’s joke.
I loved it too!
I don’t watch Ultimate Fighting, but she is interesting!
I have to clear up the awful mess the snow plows left at the end of the drive. There’s about 3-4 feet of ice piled up that I have to chip through before I can get a car out. I don’t think I’m going anywhere today.
How ironic you are listening to a Snow Patrol track..
COINCIDENCE IS NOT IRONY, VAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wait swap that.
Wait no, now Ive confused myself.
Yuck! Sounds like a good day to stay home.
We got some snow yesterday, maybe 4 inches, but the nice thing about Colorado is that the sun works miracles. If you don’t like the weather, wait a few minutes!
“I have to clear up the awful mess” is going to be the title of my autobiography.
“Maybe 4 inches” is going to be mine.
“a few minutes”
Brilliant and genius!
“I don’t think I’m going anywhere”
™ all of these STAT!
“depth: it penetrates approximately 2/3 cm beneath the epidermis”
For when youre in the mood for a 3 minute video of children acting out Oscar nominated film scenes…
Thank God it’s today!
CP: Exile Vilify (From the Game “Portal 2″) — The National
Oh I think I kinda like the National. Local H does a spectacular cover of “Terrible Love”.
I have a scratch on my iPhone screen, now that I know it’s a scratch I notice it everyday..grrrrr!
So much for gorilla glass..
Scratch and Sniff app?
Why do we keep going back to Ke$ha??????
’cause she never turns us down?
Miss Jack$on I presume?
I ju$t ¢rapped my pant$ with laughter….
Careful, $he’ll be all over that.
… then you’ll need to get it steam cleaned.
I think $he’d prefer a Cleveland $teamer…
Do they have White Castles in Ohio?
What is the live chat version of hold? Whatever it is, that’s what I’m doing.
Well, after another 2 hours, the driveway is totally clear, though I’ve fucked up my knee. Hopefully it will be good enough for travel on Sunday since I need to head out to the main office for work.
Thought for the future …
Get one of those turkey fryers.
Park it at the end of your drive way when they are predicting massive snow.
Let the plows bury it.
Dig your way to the ignition switch.
Light it and let it melt away your cares.
Almost feeling human again.
Still need to make sure travel is okay with the family, but looking like airfare will be reasonable, and I will need transport/lodging. AllegiantAir flies in on Thursday and out on Monday, not a lot of options. Oh, and it is an odd airport so I need to figure out a ride to/from St. Cloud on this end…
Unless Darcy comes along, (a possibility) in which case we’d look at a hotel.
How is Mesa for a hotel compared to where everything is happening?
Looking at pricing and thinking me solo using floor space will be the answer, but we shall see…
At Rula Bula with a coworker. 4th bar tonight. And I was drinking before we hit the bars. My stomach is a roiling pit of acid right now. A tums, a tums, my kingdom for a tums.
I’m glad you made it there! I hope the Mill Ave. Saturday night scene made you feel old and terrified for our future, as it always does for me.
Mill Ave was great. We started at Gordon Biersh, moved on to Macayo’s Depot Canteena where we had “street tacos” for dinner and where I learned that “street” in Phoenix apparently means “tiny-ass-little-thing”. We then moved on to the Loco Patron grill where a 52 year old woman hit on my 28 year old co-worker. He’ll never live that one down. Especially when I tell everyone at work ALL about it. Finally wound up at Rula Bula where I had the stomach problems and decided to call it a night. It was only 9:30. I’m getting to old for this shit.
I dream that I’ll have time to read this, eventually.
A little bit of sunshine and the cyclist come out in force.
Bunny: OK, thanks! (re: hanging out on Monday at the MMMMMeetup)
Usedhair: I love Rula Bula! Glad you had fun. Feel better!
It’s 2:20. I have 3 hours and 40 minutes to make lasagna, pie, and cake before Oscar coverage starts on TV. (The pie and cake are more of my food-based fan-art for one of my favorite movies of the past year, Wreck-It Ralph. I will post pictures, if I remember to.)
So we ought to talk about a MMMmmmeetup travel/pizza fund. There,I’ve started the discussion.
What did you have in mind, Jack?
I will happily contribute.
Van, something came up and my Boo is asking for attention tomorrow. Cam we record after one pm my time tomorrow? I think that’s about 7pm yours.
Sure TEB, replied via Twitter
Heh, the weatherman just said “6 inches down south”.
Yes, Im 12 yeas old.
I spell like one too.
While here in Alberta we are actually hoping it snows. It’s been such a warm dry winter here the farmers are starting to worry
Just making a dick joke. Didnt say I didnt appreciate the moisture.
We’re really grateful for last week’s snowstorm here in Nebraska, too. Last year was a pretty dry year.
The new Puscifer EP is wonderful. Highly recommended.
For fucks sake, they do a cover of Accept’s “Balls to the Wall”.
I have been standing up for about four hours. My feet are tired. But I have lasagna, mini-pies, and cake (which is currently cooling, waiting to be frosted). My first picture is on Facebook already, and more are to come.
Not going to watch the oscars but we did watch the opening number. The We Saw Your Boobs bit was awesome
I agree. I laughed out loud.
Back from Arizona. My suitcase was 13 lbs over weight and I had to do quite a bit of shuffling to get that weight to my backpack. Guess I need to start toning down the number of beers I take back from trips. 19 was a bit much.
I for one, am impressed with your bringing that much “liquid in glass bottles” on board an aircraft. Much less in your luggage where it wasn’t broken by baggage mishandlers or stolen by TSA performers.
I keep waiting for the day when I find my bag swimming in a pool of beer when it saunters by on the carousel. I’m sure it will happen sooner or later. Til then, I’ll keep drinking the beer.
*jaj, inspired by UH’s indomitable spirit, wipes tear from corner of his eye*
I am glad you (and your beers) made it back safe and sound, UH.
A pious man explained to his followers ¨It is evil to take lives and noble to save them.
Each day, I pledge to save a hundred lives. I drop my net in the lake and scoop out 100
Fishes. I place the fishes on the bank, where they flop and twirl. ¨Don´t be scared, I tell those fishes. Ï am saving you from drowning.¨
Soon enough the fish grow calm and lie still. Yet, sad to say, I am always too late. The fishes expire. And because it is evil to waste anything, I take those dead fish to market and I sell them for a good price. With the money I receive, I buy more nets so I can save more fish.
Uh Oh! I haven’t recorded my BladeRutger segment yet!
The nerves are kicking in for my chat with TEB.
You’re an expert on this subject, you have strong feelings about it. You’re going to do great.
BTW – - Rhettro is also quite the Bladerunner expert. We had an excellent time recording with him and Desert Pixie yesterday, after a viewing of the Theatrical Cut, along with Ridley Scott’s drunken introduction.
In the Director’s Cut of the upcoming episode, Jack is going to cut the Rhettro voice over and then tack on a happy ending.
The unicorn made a lot of excellent points.
No pun intended.
Van and I had a nice chat
Albeit a rambling one.
ITunes and I have a hate on for eachother.
For some reason the latest version of iTunes randomly deletes my podcast feeds..grrrr!
