FIVE GOLDEN RINGS!!
Jack, I like all of my AKAs! I’ll have to listen again and make up my mind!
Do any Pan-ners like one over another?
Oh, and good morning, yo.
7 is a lucky number
Smooooth like buttah!
I GOT ONE!
Stay on target 😉
“Don’t get cocky kid!”
Are you kissing my sister?
I did not have the glasses but I did have the hat he wore.
The closest I could get to the clothing was my mom’s seventies pleather suit and it didn’t quite work the same way.
Are we talking about Vanamonde’s Greasy Jelly Bean Game?
That seems like something straight out of a cartoon. There are probably no practical applications. LOL
ditto: I haven’t even met your sister. 😉
Probably will be used the next James Bond film.
Smooth like butter would be my fav.
So this week my niece discovered her dream job that she was due to start was in fact fake.
Seems the guy fooled the job centre and was collecting details about young women.
Now the concept for this movie looks cool:
Zombie Nazis oh my…
Are we shooting for our nipples on this page? Or on the Deadpan Reaper page?
Well in the past it’s been done on show and unshow pages.
So seeing the casual racism displayed by West Virginia voters on the latest Daily Show was a bit depressing.
I can do that! Sorry for the comments on the wrong page!
Last 4 in my iPod shuffle:
“Long May You Run” – Neil Young
“Wonderful” – India.Arie
“Reckoning” – Ani DiFranco
“Parchman Farm” – John Mayall
n talk on either comments page.
Darwin in action.
So just started reading ‘The Book Thief’ by Markus Zukas.
The idea of Death (or DEATH as a TP fan) telling the story intrigue me enough to borrow it from the library.
Haven’t seen last night’s Daily Show yet, Van. It was bad, huh?
The racism was bad, but the show was funny as usual, and JS was took the piss out of the racist voters.
I hasten to add that this isn’t just a USA issue. The UK has more than it’s fair share of bigots.
“Gone Daddy Gone” – Violent Femmes
“Money Made You Mean” – Indigo Girls
“Come Together” – MC5
“Capricorn Sister” – Mother Love Bone
Last four albums I ripped for use on my phone:
Vegas – Martyn Joseph
Thanks, Van. Here I was all alone on the reaper page *silly me*
This Earthly Spell – Karine Polwart
Mother Love Bone!
What was the WV issue?
And speaking of incendiary politico thought – go Keith Olbermann:
In Love + Light – Heidi Talbot
In Love + Light – Heidi Talbot
The Devil’s Ground – Billy Mitchell
When in doubt use FUD.
When Jet Powered Wings are outlawed then only outlaws will have jet powered wings.
FUD… Elmore FUD.
“Rubin and Cherise” – Jerry Garcia
“Rock Paper Scissors” – Ani DiFranco
“Moog Marmalade” – Galactic
I know a woman who was friends w/ Andy from MLB — I love that band!
Well they should be easy to track…until they get stealthed.
Anything that shortens the life expectancy of outlaws is a good thing, right? LOL
Gentlemen, I’m afraid we may be developing a “Jet Powered Wing-Gap” !!!
Is it time to head to the mineshafts yet?
Currently playing: Into The Dark by Melissa Etheridge
You know with the current presidential candidates it’s been all Iraq War and gas prices, but not a single one has even mentioned the “Jet Powered Wing-Gap.” Conspiracy?
“Glad To See You Go” – The Ramones
“ShoYoAss” – The Coup
That one was kinda whiplashey. I have to take a little break!
Well, they’re all done installing my furnace and hot water system. Now I get to play with a whole bunch of new buttons 🙂
Oh – Kay. Time for lunch. Hmm.. corndogs or burritos? Let’s see what looks the best at the Safeway lunch counter.
Currently listening to: The Medieval Babes
Nice video, shame about the song:
“Smooth Like Butta”
We have a winner!
Better go and stretch my legs before it starts raining.
AKA Smooth Like Butta
or is it Buttah?
*mulling it over*
“Car Jamming” – The Clash
“Vein Melter” – Herbie Hancock
So, do you think they’ll ever do a Hulk vs. Thor in the movies?
Holy cow, some people have talent!
OK, I don’t know what tinyurl did to my link, so let’s try it again 🙂
Screw it, here’s the full size one
Is it EssBee or is it buttah?
Must head out – Ta
Greasy nipples + buttah = slippery nipples 😉
“Set You Free” – The Black Keys
“Bubble” – Ani DiFranco
“Scarlet Begonias” – Grateful Dead
Okay, ditto – good one!
Thank you. Thank you, very much.
I take requests too. 😉
Rhettro – hilarious comment on gay marriage on the Deadpan the Reaper page!
EssBee, glad you liked it. 🙂
Would bisexuals not be a rain on `the plan’?
We do tend to ruin plans, Van.
Just listened to:
I Am A Missile – The Kingsize Five
on a podcast.
The wonders of My Space:
Ah, but they make the plans just that more interesting. LOL
As far as “the plan,” I don’t see their effect as statistically significant as they would tend to put as many prospects in play as they took off of the field. LOL
ZP does GTA 4:
Not as funny as previous episodes.
The mail bag ep was awesome.
I liked the mail bag one as well. LOL I’ll check out the current one when I get home.
Anger is always good for a laugh though.
Yes, but I loved how he graded the emails. One even got a B+!
Well he’s convinced me to get GTA 4 on the 360…one of these days.
In regards to marriage. What would you say is wrong with the current system?
J0e has a good post on the Reaper thread on this very topic. Rather than chime in myself, I’ll post Mother Love Bone lyrics, inspired by the MLB talk earlier:
She’s always been given
So I can’t always make her laugh
But I’m proud to say
And I won’t forget
The time spent layin’ by her side
The time spent layin’ by her side
Dreams like this must die
And a dream like this must die
Yes it was a transparent attempt to get the conversation started on here.
I’ll need to add more grime in the future.
No no – a very good topic, Van. (and J0e and Rhett and everyone).
I have some thoughts on marriage myself. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
I’ll try to find a quiet moment to crystallize and post them.
I’ll be the queer person in the marriage conversation (and PLEASE don’t censor yourselves because I’m here). I, like Jack, will find some crystal . . . wait. I’ll find a moment and tell you what I think. Might not be until tomorrow morning.
I have seen hell and it is dubshack…
Southland tales is really bad.
Oh, and nice one, Jack, w/ the MLB!
Trucker, I liked it!
I very much look forward to your thoughts Essbee. 🙂
In a way I kind of hope that Southland sucks. That way Dub can take the heat for recommending a bad film and when we get around to my recommendations for “A Boy and His Dog” and the original “Wicker Man” the fallout won’t be as bad. LOL
ABAHD had a great ending though….not up there with Planet of the Apes, but close.
I’ve only seen bit of the original Wicker Man..never sat down and watch it all the way through.
I wonder if there is a medical condition to explain the compulsion to shorten movies names to initials.
Guess the film:
The ‘:” is a bit of a giveaway.
Well it can’t be “The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies”
It also isn’t “Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood”
It’s the Dr. Strangelove sequel:
“Oh How I Loathe To See Wallabees Act Like Tiny Birds”
…. wasn’t as good as the first.
Oh, Dr. Strangelove. Duh.
I can’t remember any movies that begin with B.
The Borat movie..aarrrrgggnhh.
Boyz in the Hood
Bright Lights Big City – awesome, awesome drug addiction movie
Big Trouble in Little Chine
Bound – awesome awesome lesbian sex
Big Trouble in Little China.
Van nailed it. After I posted the two movies I knew of solely for their long titles I did a search for long titles and found Borat. LOL I forgot that it had a ridiculously long title as well.
Boys on the Side
Breakfast at tiffany’s
Bowling for Columbine
Dang, ASH beat me to BTILC. LOL
Is there a movie that has lame lesbian sex? I think not!
The Bee movie. *snicker*
Okay, I’m putting off filling out my time sheet. I’ll be back later. Much later.
Ok an easy one with a clue.

yep it is.
sorry we fucked this list up Jack we will try again another time
Hugh sez: and we will do better, we’ll build it stronger and faster than it was before!
Evening post time.
They want me to work a possible 12 tomorrow. Therefore I should be in bed…
an hour ago. Oh well, I refuse to go to bed before my 2-yr-old.
Here’s the one where I give my as promised thoughts on gay marriage:
I think that my relationship is just as valid as the relationships of my straight brothers and sisters out there. My girl and I have been together for 9 years. We pay taxes, we shop locally, we watch out for the kids in our neighborhood, we take care of our parents and grandparents, and we plan on leaving this world a better place than it was when we found it — at least our little corner of it. We should be allowed to have a legally recognized marriage that protects us and our property if we want one.
That being said, I have no interest in marriage myself. I’m a feminist, and an anti-racist activist, and I think that calling my very queer relationship a marriage so that John Q. (who doesn’t want to recognize it anyway) understands it is completely unattractive. This world is awesome because there are so many different ways to live. I refuse to mimic heterosexual marriage.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled Pan.
Also, you guys are pretty wicked cool. Just read the comments on the Deadpan the Reaper page on the marriage topic.
actually we are all just figments of Jack’s imagination.
Some people spend their time in chat rooms pretending to be 13 year old girls … then there is Jack, who started a forum, created a universe of characters and then spends all day posting under those names.
I would suggest he seek help … but he is me too.
… oh, and the cake is a lie ….
I love the mountains
I love the clear blue skies
I love big bridges
I love when great whites fly
I love the whole world
And all its sights and sounds
I love the oceans
I love real dirty things
I love to go fast
I love Egyptian kings
I love the whole world
And all its craziness
I love tornadoes
I love arachnids
I love hot magma
I love the giant squids
I love the whole world
It’s such a brilliant place
My love of the world stops at spiders.
ok maybe I just love spiders when they are not on me 🙂
j0e- LOL.. that made me spit my drink. Or should I say Jack…
EssBee I agree
Spiders are ok in my book, they eat roaches who are the true evil of the world
night John boy
Stiff upper lips and Tally Ho:
Hopefully the remake of the 1954 film will be a good one.
Yeah those cockroaches are such smug gits, always going on how their ancestry stretching back 300 million years.
stretches rather than stretching..doh!
3:50AM CDT. Some of you haven’t even gone to sleep, have you?
Morning Pan! It’s a beautiful sunny morning. They’re even saying temperatures will reach 30 C.
Ok, I usually don’t chime in on politics or religion but I’m going to put my two cents in on the whole Gay marriage thing.
We have had a number of friends and acquaintances who preferred their own sex over that of the opposite. Being friends with them has never seemed to affect the relationship my husband and i have. Nor did it seem to effect how my children grew up. My attitude is, I won’t tell you what we do in the bedroom, you don’t tell me what you do. Otherwise, anything goes.
more to come…
To begin with, Alberta is a very “red neck” province. When Canada first brought in legalized gay marriage, Alberta was trying to find legal ways to fight it.
That being said, there was a friend (he’s since move out of town and we lost touch, hence “was”) who you wouldn’t know was gay at all just from normal day to day life. Knowing what life in Alberta is like, he was very low key about his personal life. Regardless, someone(s) in (or around) his apartment got wind of his lifestyle. A number of people jumped my friend behind their building. Robert spent several weeks in the hospital.
Since that time, he became what most would call “flaming”. He developed the attitude of, “If keeping low key didn’t do any good, then I’m going to let the world know exactly where I stand.”
I completely agree with him.
Actually, funny story with Robert. When my husband and I first started dating, I was chairman of our local SF convention. I took him to one of our meetings. Robert was also on the committee. I introduced my husband to everybody (it was the first time he met my outer circle of friends). Robert looked at him and said to me, “If you ever get tired of him, let me know. I’ll want to give him a call.” (my husband is a good looking man).
When this happened, I was a little nervous as I wasn’t sure where my husband stood on the subject at the time. Luckily, he thinks like I do and found it amusing.
Ok, that’s it on that subject.

In the news today (on a similar subject)
Toronto – Ontario will soon join other provinces in providing coverage for sex-change surgery under the province’s health insurance plan, Health Minister George Smitherman said yesterday.
Smitherman said the details have not been finalized, but Ontario will start paying for sexual reassignment surgery for hte first time in 10 years, providing coverage ofr the limited number of people who qualify for the procedure.
“It’s the government’s intention to move forward with the provision of services on about the same level as they were (when) cancelled some number of years ago,” he said.
I didn’t know it was ever covered.
Tokyo – Ladies, take your battle for the environment a little closer to your heart with a solar-powered bra that can generate enough electric energy to charge a mobile phone or an iPod.
Lingerie maker Triumph International Japan Ltd. unveiled its environmentally friendly “Solar Power Bra” this week in Tokyo which features a solar panel worn around the stomach.
The panel requires light to generate electricity and the concept bra will not be in stores anytime soon, said Triumph spokeswoman Yoshiko Masuda.
“People usually can not go outside without wearing clothes over it”
So why make a bra no one can use?
London – Aliens from outer space have been visiting Britain for ears and UFO sightings doubled after the film Close Encounters was released in 1977, according to secret files collating reports by members of the public.
The alien craft come in all shapes and sizes, but their occupants are uniformly green, the Ministry of Defence files show.
The archives (at http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/ufos) are the first batch of a four-year release program of all the ministry’s UFO files from 1978 to the present day
Any comments, Van?
TEB: You ever read “This is my country, what’s yours?” I’m nearly done. It’s a very interesting book. I see the CBC did something with it:
Miami – t was a call to duty.
A man trying to flee from Florida police phoned his mother for help and she obligingly rushed to the scene and rammed two lawmen with her sports-utility vehicle, deputies said yesterday.
Mother and son were arrested after the confrontation in the Fort Lauderdale suburb of Pompano Beach, Fla., the Broward County sheriff’s office said.
Police said they tried to stop Joe Morgan, 25 on a traffic offence but he fled, phoning his mom as he drove away.

So what’s with all the bizarre stories today?
According to Google, today is LASER TAG DAY!
What’s that? First laser? Oh, not laser tag.
No I haven’t, Ditto. I’ll pick it up.
What I have read is How To Be a Canadian
While tongue in cheek, it’s actually very accurate.
I have that too. Very funny. The book I mentioned is very serious, interesting, and sometimes aggravating. Its a very interesting way to look at Canada.
I’ll stop by Chapters this weekend and see if I can get it.
Well, hubby is finally waking up (he has the day off). It’s a long weekend here in Canadaland so you probably won’t hear from me til Tuesday or Wednesday (depending upon what day next week I go into the office).
One interesting thing in â€œThis is my country, whatâ€™s yours?â€ is that the author calls Americans USAmericans. I like that. 🙂
Not sure I believe UFOs are little green men visiting Earth.
Aren’t you all North Americans in the way I’m an European.
Basically. I doubt you’ll ever here a Canadian say they are visiting America; it’s always The States to us.

Off out to see Outpost, hopefully with my low expectations about a movie with nazi zombies will mean it will enjoyable.
That may not make sense.
Everywhere I go, people keep calling me Jack Mangan.
That’s cuz we are all just different personas of Jack. Well, except for EssBee. 😉
How ya doin’, Jack?
Kinda hungry. Do you have cake?
ditto – Central and South Americans also call it “the U.S.” I try very hard to do that myself!
I tend to say Greater North America. 😉
Hi Jack. Hello Jack.
Hey Jack, have you seen Jack, I need to talk to him. Tell him Jack was looking for him. I have his cake.
EssBee, the Jacks agree.
I wanted to commend EssBee on her post. Well done. I’ve got a few things I need to get out the door this morning. Look for me back here after lunch.
I agree with Rhettro, I mean Jack.
Yes, I’m very good at being gay. Thank you, thank you.
I’ll be here all week.
Only for a week? I guess if the show is this good, I’m not going anywhere! 😉
but you should keep practicing because there is always room for improvement!
Hundreds of satisfied customers.

I know, right?
You’re developing as many personalities as Jack.
Unless of course you ARE Jack. Then … well, I can’t do the math.
Hello Jack, your name is my name too.
My head just exploded.
All in all, we’re all just Jacks in the wall. . .
You little Jack you’re in it now,
I hope they throw away the key.
You should have talked deadpan more often
Than you did, but no! You had to go
Your own way, have you broken any
Just five minutes, Jack, your honor,
Him and Me, alone.

It was cool day in October and with the clock approaching noon, the Apple Jacks I had for breakfast were wearing off. I decided to jump in the car and head to Jack in the Box. On the way there I got a flat and fumbled with the car jack. It occurred to me that when it came to jacking up a car, I knew jack. But it wasn’t just my lack of experience, I jacked up my back the day before doing jumping jacks with my son. With the tire fixed I was soon at the order window. My casher asked me what I did for a living, I told him I was sort of a Jack of all trades. He remarked that the sunglasses I was wearing reminded him of Jackie-O. That’s just a sort of thing a jack-off like him would say. He must of thought himself a real cracker jack of fashion. So after a quick lunch I rushed home. There were Jack-O-Lanterns to be carved and I needed to get started. To sooth my aching muscles, I drank a cup of joe. Jack.

Here is an interesting topic:
What do you use to shave, and why?
Hmmm… razor and shaving cream, because electric razors make my skin itch.
Finally a music reunion a couple of punk kids like us can get excited about!!!
I’ll shows yous!!
lets try this again

we shall duel again Mr WordPress, and next time you might not be so lucky
what I was trying to post was a link to a story that the Butthole Surfers are reuniting!!!!!
It made our little punk rock hearts joyful!!
I can’t say I approve of Ant Man as a wife beater, but I do admire his special talent. LOL
although something tells me there ain’t a lot of other Butthole Surfer fans around these parts
ah well.. we’re excited about it
had lots of fun with the Butthole Surfers back in the day
Hugh sez: maybe a little too much fun
word that Hughie
we just sandwiched Rhettro
Hold the mayo!
Electric shaver, on my face and on my head.
I don’t think I’m Jack, but I could be lying.
Outpost was silly fun and with a running time of 90 minutes it didn’t out stay it’s welcome.
Nazis – check
Zombies – check
Blood n Guts – check
Pseudoscientific explanation for the zombies – check
..and that was that.
Hugh sez: I use electric. I just prefer electric. I hate razors.
Not that you asked me, but I get everything waxed that needs shaving 🙂
Hugh sez: *swooooon*
..and doesn’t butter get less smooth as the temperature drops?
Oh and it saves time doing both together.
Ha! That’s a danger I’m willing to risk!
Blue dust everywhere. Getting a new carpet and the old underfelt was crumbling into dust, removing it has led to a thin patina of bluedust over everything.

it is Internet parody-erific!!!!
Things to do before the day is over:
1. Change the bench paper
2. Make more 4% formaldehyde
3. Take the receipt for the latex gloves to acct services
4. Finish sample F71 20-30mm
5. Clean out the -80 fridge
6. Restock the ludox solution
7. Filter the silt fraction from the samples to be ludoxed next week.
Hell I probably won’t do any of that crap. I’m going to get some Taco Bell.

I got the new Schick quattro thing with beard trimmer on the other end.
And yes, you push the button and it vibrates.
Speaking of. . . .
Actually, I won’t be surprised if we get a five bladed razor. LOL

Good morning, Pan.
Lots to do this morning in prep for my folks coming over this afternoon. Bought some al-kee-hall for the occasion. A Canadian cider with the brand name “Wyder’s.” I’m not familiar with this name, the only Canadian cider I know is BC Grower’s and I have the suspicion this may just be a re-branding of same.
The other is a Sam Adams “Longshot” sixpack of homebrewer’s competition winners, three Grape Pale Ales and three “Weizenbocks”
Wow, looks like at least 200 comments since my last check in. I’ve skimmed quickly to try and keep up with the gist of things. Afraid I wasn’t able to check out anyone’s fine links yet.
And now, it’s time to build a playground.
If you build it … they will squeel!
Like a little piggy.
This just in:
I will be successful someday.
A fortune cookie told me so.
If anyone were ever curious about Wingin’ It’s Live Feed Saturdays, today would be the day to get in on the action.
All I’m saying.
Alas I won’t be accessing the live feed this week as I’m off to see this pair in concert:
Maybe you can give details later Dub.
I haven’t checked out the live feed in over a year. I’m just far too busy.
This would be the day to do so … if you think you might want to know what it is like.
nope, no time for the live feed. Also, considering i haven’t listened to wingin it since it became 3d, I don’t think I would have any a clue whats going on.
Besides we would rather go to yoga and tai chi and then have sushi which is our plan for this evening.
We hope everyone is having a great Saturday across Deadpan land
Well, that’s enough for today. 15 out of 33 stages complete on the playground project. I say stages as each one has probably at least a dozen screws or bolts involved. The basic fort is assembled and useable. Tomorrow I’ll probably do the roof and rock wall.
Tonight, I listen to my muscles tell me I’m too old to be doing this. I generally ignore them, though there may be some rum involved.
So was there a big announcement about wingin 3d?
Alas work interferes with the live feed today.
Although I may have time tonight to watch Southland Tales. I mat need anesthesia later.
Mat = may
Missed the feed with folks here and all. I had a 25% suspicion it was a giant mislead with lots of co-conspirators. What was the truth?
wingin is dead… Long live the Dead… pan. Damnit Deadpan is “dead?”… No it name is Dead… no… Deadpan aka the live show that not dead just in a pan…. Yeah… right. I think. Oh well.
I hope you’re not driving today, Mr. Jaffee, It doesn’t sound like you have your sense of direction with you right now…
Well Southland Tales is over.
My mini review: imagine a 2 1/2 hour version of the intermission from Monty Python;s the Meaning of Life.
Tomorrow or the day after I’ll post my drinking game for southland tales.
I’ve watched the first 20 minutes of it so far. I think I’m going to need a lot more to drink.
In billiards, you put english on your balls when the politics are in a corner…
In English, you put your balls on the politics when your corner is in a spin…
Allow me to Illuminate the situation.
1) Wingin’ It is officially dead.
2) It’s not coming back.
3) Mike and Brian are REALLY freakin’ happy about it
4) No one else seriously seems to give a rats ass. Which is just amusing as hell to me and Brian because we pretty much figured that, given the last 20 episodes have been about beating a dead horse.
5) They’re going to do a bunch of “best of” episodes until the pool party, and then thats it. This includes all incarnations of WI, so tune in because I’m one of the guys picking moments, and you’ll get to hear stuff like Jack Mangan smacking down a lot of people and Alvie and Jeremy from Seattle. And anyone else who ever did anything funny back in the good old days.
6) I told Brian this means Deadpan is King, and Brian admitted it kind of has been for a while now anyway.
So… That is all.
Oh, and I had like an hour and a half of really great sex.
That last comment was just to show how much I care about everything that came before it. 😉
Thanks for showing the light Dub…I think.
But they seems no mention on the Wingin it forums about it’s imminent demise.
No cries of anguish at it’s leaving, no drunken mobs demanding it’s return, just a whimper.
In fact not even aa whimper, unless there is an obscure message with a fooked up timedate so it doesn’t show at the top of message list.
Of course if I had just looked at the web page:
So any recommendation’s for podcasts? I’ve hour and a half to fit into my schedule.

Well there is the Kulture Kast: http://www.kulturekast.com/
for random geekery and snarkery (snarkery where the hell did that come from?)
Or I’ve heard of this choose your own adventure style podiobook, made by I think 9volt theater. Something about through a broken magnifying glass? I’m not sure I haven’t gotten around to listening to it.
Thx LR I’ll check out kulturekast.
We are waiting for Hugh’s brother to come pick us up so we thought we would play by play a bit while we waited.
Its a beautiful sunny morning here in Chi town
Hugh sez: after a wonderful Saturday night
it was 🙂
well actually the next item in the Deadpan playlist is the Joe tribute show, but we can’t listen to that right now. But we will play that when its a better time
In case anyone is interested, The Sex is Fun podcast has been doing a whole series of shows on sex education that has been fascinating. They covered abstinence only education and how to talk to your kids about sex, and then they compare the differences between sex ed in Europe and America.
It was quite interesting if you have any interest in the subject.
Hugh sez: I don’t have phobias but I carry some crazy superstitions in my head, which I guess is like a phobia. Maybe my phobia is fear of upsetting the Gods
LOL, that sounds about right
I have a phobia of falling, and big nasty creepy crawling things
Hugh sez: You have a fear of falling because your balance is so off kilter. YOu are always on the verge of falling over
That is so true. But my balance is beginning to improve
Hugh sez: Your balance was damn good in yoga yesterday
It was! Did you see my tree pose? and that one where you twist yourself all together?
Hugh sez: I did.
ok sorry.. back to deadpan..
Jack is sickies!!!!
But Deadpan 93 is going to be a bonanza!!
What Deadpanpalooza is it going to be???
Hugh sez: the suspense is killing me
when will we know which one won????
Hugh sez: something tells me it will be Southland Tales
I think you might be right!
Hugh sez: Jack needs some tea with honey for his throat
LOL.. joe!! That is so funny! His jelly bean guess was Vanamondes guess +1

podtaint part deux
no animosity to anyone except Debbie
Hugh sez: why you be hatting on Debbie??
Jacks reading some of Ed’s nipple
Hugh sez: Ed you lucky dog
Ed feels he has friendships here with you people
Saturday was nice. Parents came over. Grilled fajitas and rosemary blue cheese polenta. We had a birthday for me in advance of my Monday birthday. Mom made me Red Waldorf cake, and the folks got me an Apple store gift card, Vol. 1 of P.N. Elrod’s Vampire Files series, and this other hardcover with a creepy eye in a triangle on the cover…
Seems I posted just as the Hotties of Chicago lulled for a moment in their listening posts.
How is Chicago this fine spring Sunday morning?
Jack that is so so so so so so so SO true
*pause to put my thoughts*
Deadpan is the only podcast community I “belong” to in anyway. I’ve stopped listening to every other podcast I used to listen to except our sex podcasts and I just listen to those, I don’t comment on their websites. Although I have emailed the shows and they have always been so nice on email. Anywho…
Deadpan has evolved so many times. I have to admit I felt closer to the community here before, when I first started hanging out on here. We all talked together on a topic, where as now it is more of a mix some people have conversations, many post something about themselves not joining the conversation. Remember when it used to be required to start any post that wasn’t in the conversation with: “Tangent!” LOL. But I feel some of that closeness we had before has been lost. Not saying it was better before, but I felt closer to that group then. It was just different. Many of those people are still here and that closeness is still lost.
Now I feel Deadpan is a place we come to to just blow off some steam and then go. Before I felt it was necessary to read everyones comments and see what was going on with people, now I post sometimes without even looking at what was said before. Again not saying one time was better than the other, it was just the dynamic of the people involved, we got new blood in the comments and it evolved to the new dynamic with the new personalities.
I’ve made a couple really great friendships here on Deadpan, I hope to call my friends Jack, Alvie and Addie my friends for the rest of my life. A few people here we pass a friendly email once in a while, and I like to stay in touch with those people, see how they are doing. (which reminds me I have an email from Kris I need to return). Others I only see on here and sometimes we barely pass a comment to each other. So its a very interesting range of people, and personalities.
I think you need to take each person as an individual. If I were to keep coming here expecting that same dynamic Deadpan had in the beginning, I would come here and get upset that it isn’t like it was. But if your realize that you can’t get along with everyone the same, and some people are jerks, some people are just rude, and in every community you will find people you mesh with so so well and those people you foster great relationships with. Others are people who pass like 2 ships in the night.
You cannot say every person who joins a community like this wil be just like you and will act just like you. You have to let each personality have its time, let each personality express itself and then you can see which personality fits with yours.
If you think oh we are all geeks, we are all good people, you wil find yourself getting burned quite easily and often. Because being a geek doesn’t give you a free pass into the you are a nice person club.
But the one truly awesome thing about Deadpan- is that some of those people I want to know that they are ok, that I email once in a while are people I would never of made friends with in any other situation. Like Ed and Amy for instance are 2 people whom I respect very much and who knows, maybe they think I am an annoying little jerk, but they are 2 people whose opinions I value and who are so so so different from me, I probably never would of talked to them or met them anywhere but here in Deadpan. Kris as well is someone I keep in touch with once in a while and she is someone who is so different from me, but we were able to look beyond that and form a relationship where we check n each other once in a while. She knows all the goings on with Hugh and everything and even though we email or call each other once every few months, I love those emails and phone calls with her. DEadpan made that possible, and thats fucking cool as shit in my book.
Hugh sez: word
Sorry I was writing a novel
Chicago is wonderful today. Sunny and a wonderful cool breeze off the lake
how is your neck of the woods?
Hugh sez: wait, rosemary blue cheese polenta sounds fucking incredible
it does! Wow I’m hungry now
I need to try making that
Hugh sez: you do!
ok back to Deadpan 92
Fool me once shame on you
Fool me twice, shame shame on me
HUgh sez: none of you better be looking at my womans caboose!
Many people here have seen my naked caboose, baby
Hugh sez: thats true. Isn’t my wife’s caboose fucking great?
LOL.. awwwwww. They’ve seen your fine caboose as well
Hugh sez: That used to freak me out, now I don’t care anymore. I go to your photo shows and I stand next a 6 foot photo of my cock while holding a conversation about preschools with one of my coworkers. It’s fantastic.
Or I talk to your mom about her coming over to dinner while standing next to a photo of us doing naughty things
Hugh sez: Ok, my mom seeing your photos still freaks me out sometimes.
see you next time
Yea!! Hotties!!! I agree with much of what you said.
Dub: Thanks for the rundown. It was illuminating.
Van: I have no suggestions on podcasts. I’ve had to drop most of the ones I listen to because I have no time to listen to them. Besides, you already listen to Deadpan so my #1 suggestion is already gone. 🙂
“Hugh sez: Ok, my mom seeing your photos still freaks me out sometimes.”
Okay, I found this online, but lost the attribution to who originally uploaded it, but I don’t claim to have invented it:
Creamy Blue Cheese Polenta with Rosemary
3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1/2 cup Onion, diced
4 cloves Garlic, chopped
1 cup Polenta, quick cooking (cornmeal)
2 teaspoons Fresh Rosemary, chopped
4 cups water or vegetable stock
1/2 cup Blue Cheese
1/2 cup Half and Half
To taste: Salt and Pepper
Heat a 4 quart pan over medium heat. Add the oil, onion and garlic and saute for about 3 minutes. Add the rosemary and the vegetable stock. Bring to a boil and add the polenta slowly while whisking with a wire whip. Once it is all incorporated, reduce the heat and continue to stir with a wooden spoon. Cook until it is the consistency of thick oatmeal. Approximately 5- 8 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the blue cheese and the half and half. Taste for seasoning. Keep warm until ready to serve. This makes more than enough for 4 servings.
Sounds pretty good. 🙂
Good Sunday Deadpan.
I have nothing to post … but when has THAT ever stopped me?
JB- thanks for that recipe, I’m going to make that tonight methinks. I need a side dish with my baked salmon and greens (mustard and turnip greens to be exact)
Thanks ditto 🙂
Reading that again I realize I didn’t say how much also our not being able to be around here as much changed our dynamic in the group too. How much my and everyone’s personal lives can change their participation in a group and therefore changing the dynamic even more.
But I think I got my basic point across (hopefully- LOL) that everyone comes into any community with different goals/personalities/personal lives and things can change at any moment and you can’t expect everyone to be just like you, and there will be plenty of people who are the total opposite of you and there will be clashes even. But just because you are all into the same 1 thing doesn’t mean you can all get along and that there won’t be people there only there for their own personal gain and won’t care who they step on to get what they want.
and can’t we all just get along dammit?????
Ok Hugh and I had more time to waste before the Cleveland/Boston NBA game 7 comes on, so we were going to try to finish this.
Hugh sez: Don’t forget those guys are coming by about 2
Yes! So we have half an hour to finish, then we gotta go
I don’t know any women who build train sets
Hugh sez: are there a lot of women in scifi podcasting?
I don’t really know baby. There are some I guess.
Well said Jackamo
I think most people live that way. You can do what you want until you mess with me or someone I care about.
Hugh sez: then there is that section of the human race who does want to control what everyone does
and the section of the human race who currently DOES control the rest of us
I’m definitely not innocent of hurting anyone. But I really felt shitty when I did and tried to apologize for it
Hugh sez: I can say the same, and we try to do better
Yeah thats right baby, we have always tried to better ourselves. Tried to make up for our mistakes and help people we may have hurt.
Hugh sez: We did. I thnk we are good people babe
🙂 me too! We rule! LOL
Hugh sez: and we are a couple of obnoxious sons of bitches too, ain’t we?
*phone call pause*
La la la
la la la
I still feel too much or a newbie to comment either way.
of rather than or
food I need food.
Waiting with baited breath
which is a strange expression all by itself.
Don’t ever let anyone make you feel like they are better than you. You hold that power over your own feelings. No one can make you feel or think anything.
Hugh sez: No one is better than yourself to you, and you shouldn’t ever treat anyone like you are better than them when you are all trying to do the same thing. Like I know I am a better person than some child molesting mother fucker but I’m not a better person than you babe.
Yeah you are 🙂
Hugh sez: Oh you stop 🙂
Oh crap. Doorbell rang. Thats probably one of Hugh’s fellow basketball fanatics. Lets wait and listen…
Yep. The basketball festivities have begun *sigh*
I better go be the hostess with the mostess now 🙂
at least I can just sit and drool over King James in peace while Hugh cavorts with his friends. LOL.
see yous later!!
Bloody Eurovision song contest means no new Dr Who for two weeks…grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
I’m afraid I am in “Post and Run” mode today.
In military terms I am a “pop up target”.
… having now wasted those perfectly good electrons on useless information, I must go “mow the lawn”.
Actually, that is not a euphamism for something fun … I just want it to be so I put it in quotes. Seriously though, I have to go “mow the lawn”.
Had some out-of-town guests over for lunch. Now I’m making stock.
Wow, I dunno if I want to be talking about this but… There have been some equipment tests, and some basic conversations… And there may be a test run of a show that could possibly continue the Wingin’ It monicker.
But only because apparently some fans feel like the dead horse hasn’t been beaten enough.
So Dub, in your opinion, what went wrong with WI3D?
Or anyboy else with a theory.
But not the dancing demon theory…that would be silly.
I have finished “mowing the lawn” and have “cleaned up” and “had my dinner”.
JB- that “polenta” was so nummy, it finished off a “great dinner” thanks 🙂
I’m “taking my husband to bed now”
j0e seemed to have so much fun with his quotes I couldn’t resist.
I resemble that Fokker!
My friends, great news! Thanks to a lot of ibuprofen, NOW available over the counter, I am sporting some major wood!
Click here to see my erection:
I think I’ll be able to keep it up long time and the wife is well pleased.
Wow Ed! That’s quite the erection.
Getting ready to hit the hay. It was a busy but enjoyable weekend. My son and I when to a couple of comic shops, I finally bought a copy of The Watchmen and have been enjoying the first couple of chapters. My son got a vampire batman graphic novel as well as a Predator one and some other assorted comics. It broke 100 degrees today and I swam in our pool for the first time this season. That makes it feel like it’s officially summer down here. And my daughter was able to swim by herself holding a flotation device for the first time ever. Based on her progress she my be swimming completely unaided in a few more weeks, which would be fantastic because I won’t worry as bad about her drowning by accident. 🙂
Well you learn something new everyday:
My knowledge of italian dishes could be written on the back of a matchbox.
That’s cool, Rhettro. I remember that happening with my daughter a couple of years ago. She started off the summer nervous about getting the water and a few weeks later she had turned into a fish. Good times.
Vanamonde, was that picture in the article from before or after the dish had been eaten? Yikes!
Eurovision song contest, eh? We’re going two weeks until the next Dr. Who and BSG here on Sci-Fi as well. I wonder if that’s the reason for the delay on our side. Is there some Eurpean equivalent of Simon Cowell that needs to be taken out over there? Hmmm.
Though, now that I think of it, being Memorial weekend may be a factor also. Or maybe they think everyone will just be going to see the new Indiana Jones move on Friday.
Now remember children keep hydrated:
I think Mike just got tried of have a party at his house every week for 3 years.
Plus old wingin was full of bits. The new listerns didn’t want to make them and the show became a kind of weird sex political talkshow hybrid.
How this new show works I don’t know. I do understand the need for a free-form discussion and random Geeky bits on the farpoint.
Jack Mangan’s show is great for non sequitur and random bits.
I enjoy slices sci-fi for news but I get a frustrated when I need to make sure that all comments must reference a current TV show or movie.
I’ve been itching to be part of a comedy variety show. I don’t think I have enough material to do one on my own. But very much looking forward to being part of one. My big problem is I’ve never free on exactly the same time. And I don’t always have a good Internet connection when I’m stopped.
Okay this will be seen as further evidence why Jack shouldn’t set targets for nipple numbers every week, but this morning I went for a walk. Every so often I took a photo with my camera phone of what was in front of me. So in an effort to boost nipple number towards the 450 goal here we go:
Ed, your erection impresses me. I hope your back doesn’t hurt too much from that 🙂 In case you haven’t already figured it out, Aleeve has amazing powers against pain.
Polenta is just a fancy way of saying grits
I thought I remember Mike and Summer saying at the end of Mike & Evo’s WI that they were getting tons of content from Mur and TD and a bunch of others.. were they? Or was it that that stuff wasn’t enough to fill or carry a show?
We watched a couple more BSGs this weekend. I have to say after a slow uninteresting start, the show sure is picking up! But I still say Starbuck = boo. I cannot stand that character. We haven’t watched anymore Who’s or anything else except Basketball.
Hugh sez: My team lost last night 🙁 *sobs* Guess I’m switching to Spurs again.
You are a basketball team whore, Hughie 🙂
Hugh sez: I am. Only if my Bulls fail me like they did this year.
Last one. Nice to see blueskies and clouds that look like balls of cotton wool, those have been a rarity this year.
404 and 46 message to the goal.
So I’m off to work, afternoon pan,
Fun pictures, Van!
Nice work, Van. I’ll have to try and take a look at the pics another time. Too many links to click through while I’m at work.
BTW, grits and polenta are not the same, but they are very similar.
There are many ways to make polenta. The picture in the wiki article is from a mushy preparation, which is not one of my favorites. I tend to make it a lot thicker. The best thing to do with left-over polenta, imo, is to let it dry into a cake. Cut the cake lengthwise into long slices. The slices should be about 1.5″ square. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes. The outside should be crisp and turning golden brown. I cut open a slice and insert cheese. Blue cheese is excellent. 🙂
Here’s a similar recipe:
I made about a gallon and a half of fresh stock, yesterday. Very yummy. It looks like I’ll be making risotto soon. 🙂
Risotto, yum! One of my favorite things! I also love polenta AND grits. Can’t wait to try the blue cheese method (maybe tonight w/ my grilled pork chops). I had grits yesterday w/ breakfast.
Damn, now I’m hungry.
Funny. As. Hell.
Chesko – How Samuel Mother Fucking Jackson Mother Fucking Saved Mother Fucking Xmas Mother Fucker: A Children’s Story
Mmmm. That polenta recipe would go great with grilled pork chops. I’m so jealous!
Morning Pan. It was 95F on my morning commute today. LOL I noticed the news had issued a heat advisory. Ya think? Also, something very geeky from NPR, a reporter in Iraq talked about how she watched “Buffy” DVD’s as a form of escapism from her assignment, comparing the growth of her character along with Buffy. LOL
Van: Awesome pictures! I should do a series of camera pics as well.
Ed: Thanks, my daughter was still excited about what she had accomplished this morning.
Monday: You know where you can stick it.
Damn, I hate my firewall. Can’t get to Flickr anymore. I’ll have to check out Van’s photo show later.
Mark Forman is freed from murgatory.
On my lunch break right now. It’s a nice sunny day here in Big Sandy, KY. Too bad I’ll be spending most of it in a condenser.
Van: interesting idea behind the pictures I’ll have to look at them tonight back at the hotel.
Later Pan, and always remember the weather is always worse at the north pole.
Ed – That IS some errection. I am man enough to admit that even I want to come play on it.
HughSH – ??? What was that about switching teams if your balls failed you again ?
Me? I’m off to record today’s CCU which I usually do 1st thing in the AM and have mostly edited by now. Unfortunately I didn’t finish writing the show until about 15 minutes ago.
Why do I do this? I don’t know.
BTW – don’t you hate it when you pick up the Altoids tin from your desk and instead of aspirins it contains only curiously strong mints?
Are the altoids strong enough to make you forget about your headache as in “God damn these are minty!”
For Dre: Argentinian Rugby beer commercial featuring naked ruggers:
Having recorded, I thought I’d check in with the Deadpan one more time before I put on the head phones and submerged into audio waveforms.
Rhet – nope. The reaction was “Wow! This is one minty headache!”
Kate Bush is currently telling me about Experiment IV … mmommy, I ascared !
hmmmm, wonder if I could produce a podcast that achieved the same effect?
back to work.
That reminds me I need order a copy of Kate Bush’s latest.
â€œWow! This is one minty headache!â€
I think that was Altoids second choice in slogans.
Considering the amount of medicines etc that have a minty taste, mint and headaches seem to go hand in hand. LOL
Turns out that was a REAL marketing failure for the “Summers Eve” people.
“It burns when inserted rectally.” was a distant third. Oh wait. What were we talking about again?
That was George Lucas’s second choice for the last Star Wars film; “Episode 3: It Burns When Inserted Rectally”.
But for some reason, he went with “Revenge of the Sith”.
Actully, it DID burn rectally when viewed as directed.
Well, I think he named the final planet “Mustafar” for a reason. 😉
Little know fact: that was actually a typo in his script. He had named the planet “Musafart” and somewhere along the line the “T” got transposed.
Sure it was juvenile … but sooo much better then the joke I was going to make about his T getting bagged.
According to this article the cheapest gas in the country is in Phoenix, AZ wile the highest is in Chicago, IL. Check out the picture of the gas at 4.49. That station isn’t even in the wealthiest part of the city.
Rhett? Jack? Who wants to take in a couple Smarty Hotties??
why does word press hate me?
eh, fuck it
wordpress wins again, I won’t comment.
oh and actually I was wrong, if my comment is ever released from murgatory the cheapest gas in the country is in Tucson AZ not Phoenix.. sorry 🙂
Just another reason to move here. *snicker*
Although, there is something freaky going on with the weather. We’re supposed to have a high of 105F today and tomorrow. Thursday? A high of 72F.
ASH – doesn’t Chicago have that mass transportation thing ( I was afraid to put that in quotes)
ah, I’ve been released. Thank you Jackamo 🙂
Yes Rhett, I asked in my original comment if you or Jack would take us poor Smarty Hotties in.
j0e- we have a good public transportation system, but still… gas shouldn’t cost that much
and yes we have excellent “mass tansportation” here too
I love the “quotes” jokes
WordPress goes down! You’re free, Smarty Hotties.
Sure! I’d be happy to “take you in”.
I guess I better clean out the guest bedroom. LOL
Yes I’m posting more links to electric cars. Supposily theses things will go on sale in the US next year and they are supposed to cost around 18K. I’m a little sceptical, they have a range of over 100 miles per charge, a top speed of just over 60MPH, recharge in 6 hours. This would work for my daily commute, but every other electric car that comes close to these specs cost a lot more. It’d be great if true. The cost of a full charge would be about a dollar of electricty. Four dollars for a week’s worth of commuting. I’m guessing you’ll have to replace the batteries every four years at a cost of 10 grand. LOL
Break out the champers and the cheap liquorice.
The electric car looks good, but at 160 quid a month to rent the battery out (about 300 dollars) plus the cost of the car and the price starts looking steep again.
Roll on fuel cells.
Â£16,000 quid for the car..ouch.
Just what the world needs: a car you can cause to stall out using the Clapper.
Clap on, Clap off… the Clapper.
I wonder how much mileage from one charge you lose if you need to use the heater..you know in places that actually have weather.
Ripped off from this guy:
Thanks for “taking us in” Jack and Rhett
Oh look, Hugh is calling for me. I am “missing” the Spurs/Hornets game
“I can’t believe I am missing this all important game”
I don’t believe in the electric car yet
too many issues
how about a solar powered car like in Eureka
Probably would still need to use batteries:
so a quid is the same as a pound? and how much does a stone weigh. I could look if up in google like talking to people more.
Nice birthday today, work for eight hours, plenty of commuting, but evening with the family is a definite plus…
Happy Birthday JohnBoze!
My head is finally starting to hurt less. 😕
hehehe – Rhet said he better “clean out the guest bedroom.” hehehe
Ash – sorry about you missing Hugh’s “Spurs/Hornets game” seems like that wouldn’t be difficult for him to start without you. It also sounds like one you would really want to have a safeword for.
Trucker – a quid is to their pound … as a buck is to our dollar.
Happy Birthday JB !!! – May you receive a birthday present you can talk about “in quotes” tomorrow. 🙂
I’m taking my aching head to bed. no quotes
Thanks for the wishes folks!
quid = 1 pound stirling
14 pounds = 1 stone
That was your useless trivia for the day.
Unless you are weighing out food of course (but not gold those troy ouces really screw you up).
So did Helen. (see previous post)
Good Morning Pan.
was pound ever backed by a pound ov silver like the gold strander in the US?
Do people still talk abour wieght in stones?
I think I am going to tell people the wieght of my truck only in stones just to fuck them.
They might call you a “stoner”.
… or The Space Cowboy.
Some might call you the gangster of love.

Morning, Pan. I’m heading to Vegas this morning for a quick overnight business trip. I hate flying.
Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!
Take care EssBee Beesafe!
I’m listening to WI 3D #038. I agree with Mike – it was time to end it.
Vanamonde: I know its a bit late but what Trucker said was pretty accurate, though it went down something like… Debbie brought one of her nasty ass twitter friends into the studio and started grossing people out, Brian wrote on a pad “I’m done” and held it up, Mike was too busy paying attention to the board, and Tim didn’t get it so he started acting like a dick and Brian got up and left the room. They ended the show, Brian came back in and said he was done, it wasn’t fun anymore. Debbie cut the live feed and that was the last *we* heard. But then Mike said I agree, I’m right there with you, and then they both vented for a couple hours about how the show was over and how people weren’t contributing anything, they were basically just leeching off Mike.
Which if you ask me, however you split the hair, is pretty much true.
Now unfortunately we get to watch as the man vultures that are the other Farpoint Media podcasts descend and begin picking on Wingin’ It’s dead corpse. It’s revolting if you ask me, but I suppose it’s none of my business.
Also, sorry if you don’t get Southland Tales… Honestly as I said before we decided to even make it a pick, not everyone is going to get it. It has so much depth to it, it’s pretty much too dense to even understand what’s happening. I didn’t even get it till 2/3rds into the film what was happening. And that was just because I happened to have heard all the interpretations of Revelations and I get some of the principals of quantum entanglement. Not light subjects, either of them.
In any case, the movie is simply a deap throated commentary on the cultural structure of Southern California post 9/11. (Yes, believe it or not this was written before 9/11… creepy huh)
Re: Wingin It Contributions.
Was he referring to lack of content from listeners or from the others who were directly involved in the show?
Since I no longer listened to the show (I just sort of lost interest and bumped it to the bottom of the stack and then never got to it – call it “Poddrift”) I can’t comment directly.
Generally speaking though – if you want listener contributions you have to create the sort of fun and creative atmosphere that promotes those contributions. Simply begging for it won’t do the trick. Not for very long anyway.
The former Wing’in it was like that for me. I have little time for “extra” production but there at the end, the “Evo Terra” Wingin it was just to much fun for me to resist joining in. Things changed.
As it is, I have a backlog of stuff I’d like to do for the Deadpan but not the time.
“the man vultures that are the other Farpoint Media podcasts descend and begin picking on Winginâ€™ Itâ€™s dead corpse.”
I must have missed the sign-up sheet.
JOe: I think what you say is really awesome re: WI. I have been a longtime podcast listener, and have always thought to myself “wow, it’d be fun to contribute something to WI.” I never did, though, because so many homophobic, racist, and just mean things came out over the past year or so and turned me off. I didn’t stop listening, but I came really close more than once.
I sent Jack my first ever audio contribution last week. THIS is the place for me, I think.
EssBee, thats how many of us ended up here. The environment in the WI community was aggressive and confrontational. I am all for snarky comments and sarcasm, I seethe with snark and sarcasm personally, but it went beyond that there I feel.
Thats why I started commenting here, Deadpan is a much less judgemental or aggressive community. We kid each other and make jokes but we are all very accepting of each others weirdness and differences.
Eventually my life got too busy and I couldn’t keep up with slice or cover to cover. Then all the people I liked listening to on WI were gone and I stopped listening to that too.
Eventually I became as I am now, 100% Deadpan 🙂
Well ok 85% Deadpan and 15% sex pervert.. but you all knew that already
Hugh sez hethinks I might actually be
65% pervert, 15% Smart ass, 20% Deadpan
I guess I have always had problems maintaining my Deadpanocity
So any attempt at calorie control today is being thwarted by a plate of home made sausage rolls with pastry that crumbles in the mouth..mmmmmmm!
As for WI3D, this world is far from perfect and people are going to have some strange attitudes towards people they don’t like or are afraid of. However as long as it’s all talk I can live with that. It’s when they get the pitchforks and burning torches out that I start to worry.
Well, 75% deadpan and 95% sex pervert. 😉
Oh and if you lean to the left, a lot of the right wing/libertarian podcasts are good for a laugh on a good day and a source of despair on a bad one.
To be honest, I’ve gotten so busy at work and in my personal life that podcasts have been actively interfering with how I get things done. Plus, I’ve often found that at the end of the podcast, I have no idea of what was said. At that point it seems pointless to continue to listen, or to contribute, imo. So, the only “talking” podcasts I listen to anymore are Deadpan, JapanesePod 101, and podictionary. The remaining few podcasts are all music based.
I know it’s true, TSH. I followed the original WI crowd, and have been listening to Deadpan for awhile. I finally jumped in here recently, and am sure glad I did. You all are fabulous.
ditto, I know what you mean by coming to the end of a podcast and having no idea what was said! I still subscribe to tons and tons of them, though. I’m listening to Savage Love right now.
Okay, Pan – really going to the airport now. Enjoy your day!
I’ll miss WI. It was a great show in all its incarnations.
Enjoy Vegas EssBee even if it is a business trip.
Just finished reading Blink, last night. It’s a fascinating book about how our subconscious affects rapid decision making.
End of a era and all that jazz.
I’ve been lucky with the podcasts I listen to, not many have podfaded.
Yeah ditto, that was happening to me too with the talking, I switched to a lot of music casts too, but Ive dumped those now because I have no time to keep up.
We still listen to our sex podcasts when we both have time and we just skip around and listen to the topic we want, they dont need to be listened to in any kind of order which is why we like them. Most of them post the show topic in the title, so its easy to decide.. and well we find sex and sexuality topics fascinating so it works well for us.
Speaking of which- we are HUGE Savage Love fans. I love that guy.
and have a good trip EssBee
I would have loved this as a kid:
I did listen to a bunch of political casts there for a while too.. even got the presidents weekly address but honestly it all made me much too upset. Seriously. The political casts started depressing me. I had to cut them out for my own sanity
Yes, definitely have a fun and safe trip SacreBlue (aka EssBee).
Speaking of my sanity- we are going to go do some yoga and tai chi now
You got the 500 spot Rhettro..at least according to Opera.
502 fo sure
Then I’ll take 503 to say “See youse guys later”.
Yeah I listened to WI 38 on my drive in this morning. And while it’s said to see one of my main shows go, I think it was pasted due. I’ve been privileged to be a part of the behind the scenes at the Studio and what may not be readily apparent to the casual listener is that Mike works his butt off. By Saturday evening Mike starts to look like something from the Zombie channel. Something I wanted to address but have been holding off on until Mike made it public knowledge is that his passion wasn’t really in Wingin It anymore. And it’s easy to see why, before he started Farpoint, he had a handful of properties he was managing, he was a primary contributor and there were a lot of fresh things to talk about. I think the extra work load that the other shows brought as well as Joe’s illness, and Evo’s departure (which was related to those first two issues) took a lot of wind out of Mike’s sails. And when you consider that Wingin It was probably the most time consuming podcast Mike produced, you can see how WI3D started to be more of a burden than a joy to make. So I think this is a good thing. It’ll free up Mike to work on his other podcasts and the new found freedom should contribute to his creativity.
As far as listener contributions go, I don’t think WI escaped the shadow of Joe’s death. People got involved because WI was a light hearted fun show. It was a great departure from the tough world around us. Joe’s death was a heavy burden for a comedy show. A lot of the most prolific contributors didn’t come back after that.
As for my own contributions, it was 18 months ago that the manager portion in my job title was put to work and I’ve been managing the construction of a fairly large shopping district in north western Arizona. I’ve had to work quite a few weekends and the weekends I’ve had off I haven’t felt very creative. Plus my two partners in crime, Gil and Patman, have been up to their ears in work, working overseas for much of that time. So we haven’t been able to collaborate on any new material or send in funny voicemails. But the old crowd has apparently moved to Deadpan, and I think sometime in the very near future, elements of that creative past will come back together. 🙂
For podcasts I’m still a regular listener to Slice and Deadpan. I’ve added a guitar podcast to the mix, Six String Bliss, (www.sixstringbliss.com) which is a low key and friendly conversation between two guys over Skype. I’ve also been trying to find the perfect Metal podcast but haven’t found it yet. Metalscape has awesome music, but the hosts are like two stoner college kids and they talk way more than play music. I don’t like fast forwarding through 10 minutes of pointless banter just to get to the music. MSRcast has slightly better hosts that get to the music faster, but it’s a little to grounded in the old school. But MSRcast is good to jog to. I’m interested in checking out Jack’s recommendation for World Fantasy. June is looking like a month to reevalute all my current shows I listnen to.
I do have to agree as well that it’s probably best to let WI pass on. I followed the comments on the WI3D page and listened to Episode 38 today with Michael and Brian’s explanation. Honestly, had I not had the chance to meet and spend time with Mike, Brian, and Debbie there at DragonCon, I probably would have dropped the show after their rambling bitchcast at the end of 2007.
WI was clearly a show that was supposed to be about having fun. When something like that ceases to be a labor of love and becomes just a drain on your soul, it’s best to move on. I had wondered anyway how Michael put up with essentially having a big party at his house every weekend.
As for Deadpan, Let’s welcome the refugees from WI to our happy band. Though, we will have to make sure to apply the asshat filter.
THAT is definitely going to be our band name.
When Ed said that, I pictured an upsidedown fedora, with a coffee filter sitting in it. LOL
And – happy birthday, JohnBoze! I somehow missed that. Sorry, brother. I hope it was a happy one.
I’m definately behind and just catching up on podcasts. Work has been killing me and I’m about 2 weeks behind now but I’m caught up on Deadpan first. Deadpan is the fucking way.
WI ending…just catching up there but WI just hasn’t been a priority for me for months. In fact most episodes I actually hit the skip button by halfway thru. It just hasn’t been interesting at all for quite some time.
Anyway, so long as the Deadpan doesn’t podfade I’ll be happy. I apologize for not sending in content but I listen every week.
Deadpan again…is the way.
I forgot to wish JB happy birthday and Essbee safe travels.
And oh yeah – have fun with your Vegas “business”, EssBee.
And Dubshack – which “nasty twitter friend” did Debbie bring to WI! ?
And hey, it’s Scott from Kalamazoo!
OK, must stop procrastinating. I’m just gonna lurk for awhile.
Maybe it was the woman who was into being tied up, hopefully Dub will illuminate.
I know my place.
Happy birthday, JB.
Funny, I liked what I heard of “Debbie’s nastie twitter friend.” LOL It was clear that Mike, Brian and Co. were trying to delve into more geeky topics, but the women had other things on their mind. I couldn’t tell if that was a point of flustration on Mike’s part or not. But really, WI has welcomed geek and sex in equal portions for a long time. The problem in my mind was they were retreading over the same ground.
I’m really putting the “pro” in procrastination today. One final thought before lunch. WI really needed an infusion of new blood. Krazy Joe was starting to step up to the plate and DNTF could have had a place as well. But utimately WI got trapped in it’s own inertia. Perhaps we’ll see some new shows born out of the ashes of WI?
*steps onto the Deadpan Soapbox*
Point of order!
I see the need of a definition – “Podcrastination”
… is this – The act of listening to a podcast or hanging out in the forum of your favorite podcast INSTEAD of doing what you should be doing.
– Finding any excuse not to work on your next podcast.
I open the floor for mass debate.
*stumbles of the soapbox, lands in a nearby both which is fortunately unoccupied. Finds a quarter in the seat cushion, walks over to the juke box, inserts the coin and chooses Billy Idle’s “White Wedding”*
Hehe. I’m glad I “fixed” that soapbox. 🙂
I only listened to one or 2 of WI3D episodes. If it started getting racist and homophobish I am glad I wasn’t listening, because you know me and the gays…we like this *crosses fingers*. Although it would have gotten me off my ass and made me contribute something, but it wouldn’t have been lighthearted.
Rhett’s theory of Joe’s death rings really true. Now that I think of it that was a big factor for me. His decline was hard on the soul to listen to, and while I think it is an amazing “documentary” of his attitude and outlook on life, it wasn’t lighthearted or easy to listen to.
Southland Tales was teh_good…but I am having struggles when it comes to ideas for submissions…I got soul but I’m not a soulja.
Need food and a place to set up my lap-top.
do you need to set up your lap-top?
or do you need to “set up your Lap-top”?
I’m just ask’n
BTW: I’ve started listening to the “Jack Wakes Up” audio series… it’s got nothing to do with Mr. Mangan! What’s with that!
Enjoyed Jack Wakes Up, struggled with sequel, and gave up on the sequel to the sequel.
He don’t know Jack!
I AM enjoying “Jack wakes up” (even though it is not about OUR Jack) but I must admit that I am surprised at the production mistakes that exist in the first 7 episodes. That has been out a while and I would think the author would have gone back and fixed them by now.
Jeremy – if you *got* Southland Tales, then I’d say just go ahead and send in your interpretation (if you have teh time and teh inclination). Same goes for EssBee and Dub and anyone else who enjoyed it.
Or of course, feel free to get creative with your take on it.
Well I haven’t watch ST yet, but does the above mean a DP ban on negative comments on the movie?
I mean more negative comments on the movie (judging from some of the posts you may aready more than enough negative commentaries).
I’d never want a ban on people’s honest reactions; negative/positive/whatever.
“Repo Man” also took some abuse during the Repo Pan episode.
Unless they’re especially stinky, then I like to “ban” them.
I like to fan them. 😉
poor Ted Kennedy 🙁
podcrastinate is an excellent word- someone enter it into the Deadpan lexicon STAT!
Good point Rhett. I agree on the Joe thing. I can’t even bring myself to listen to the Joe tribute show right now. I think WI will always only be WI with Joe.
Wow, all this cancer talk has me upset
I need a drink
lemme go find something funny to post about…
Here, some might find this amusing:
(smarty hottie comment + link) (wordpress) = – comment
Ok it won’t let me post anything funny so I am just going to strip naked and dance an irish jig for you all
please, no cameras
For the Ted Kennedy story.
Yeah, poor Teddy K. Brain cancer can’t be a fun experience.
I noticed one of the google ads on one of the forums I was visiting had a link for http://www.gaychubbydating.com . I certainly don’t have a problem with people who happen to be gay or overweight but I didn’t know there was a market for gay chubby dating either and why a guitar playing site would get a targeted ad like that. I guess you can’t knock it until you try it right? 🙂
Dang, I missed the naked jig. No cameras? Ah….
It is often said that book to film conversions suffer cos they differ so much from what the reader imagines.
Take this excerpt from the beginning of HG Wells The Time Machine:
“The Time Traveller (for so it will be convenient to speak of him)
was expounding a recondite matter to us. His grey eyes shone and
twinkled, and his usually pale face was flushed and animated. The
fire burned brightly, and the soft radiance of the incandescent
lights in the lilies of silver caught the bubbles that flashed and
passed in our glasses. Our chairs, being his patents, embraced and
caressed us rather than submitted to be sat upon, and there was that
luxurious after-dinner atmosphere when thought roams gracefully
free of the trammels of precision. And he put it to us in this
way–marking the points with a lean forefinger–as we sat and lazily
admired his earnestness over this new paradox (as we thought it)
and his fecundity.”
When you read the above, do you actually create an image of a room and the glasses and the fire in your mind? Or do you just read the text and accept that this room has glasses and a fire within?
Van: I see the room and the glasses and the fire in my mind. What about you?
Mr. Mangan: are you suggesting that I’m not taking care of “business” here in Vegas?
Poor Ted Kennedy!
I ALWAYS miss the naked jig. Damn the luck.
I see fire, glasses, gray eyes and the like.
I am glad I got that stealth shutter installed on my camera…
I never ‘see’ anything when reading. I enjoy stories for the plot, but don’t conjure up images.
I did see the fire, the glint of the glasses and the grey eyes and a sense that everyone was enthralled listening to the time traveller’s story.
Oh My God
LOL. Well it might look like ass, but I pretty sure it won’t taste like ass.
OH MY GOD is right!
Much better. LOL
JB: Happy Birthday!
EssBee: Good luck with your travels.
everyone else: *waves*
The link JfS posted has put an idea into my head.
In a similar vein to the attempt to reinstate cancelled shows like Jericho. What if we send those chocolates to the execs at Fox as a protest to all the good shows they’ve cancelled, that way they would literally have eaten ass.

sorry for the Pixie moment there
we’ve been on the Pixie’s today and my last comment there was 555 and I was overcome with a Pixie moment
then that must make you 7?
Actually considering Southland Tales had 2 Pixie’s songs it’s rather appropriate.
and Hugh would like to make a comment Re: The NBA Draft
His comment is: w00t!
and another w00t to me for doing that without knowing! (yes sorry I am a sucky Deadpanite, we have not watched Soutland Tales, and I am not sure if we will in time. Sorry)
TSH: It’s bound to happen.
RE: Stanley Cup
And I still owe the Deadpan the drinking game rules I thought of for Southland Tales. Oh well hopefully tomorrow. I’m about to fall asleep so goodnight Deadpan, goodnight Mush.
Good lord I’m getting ridiculously busy here.
WI3D: The final word, it ended because it was no longer fun for Mike. There were many, many other reasons, including many of the people and the attitudes expressed here, however these are so ancillary that there’s just no point even going there.
Jack: I dunno who this chick is but the word is that she’s some phone sex operator but looks a little more like T-Rex from Orgasmo.
As for Debbie’s “Yoko” comment… I’m not even going to comment.
This weekend I will try very hard to put together my Southland contribution.
Right now I’m involved in deep discussion with three other popular WI personalities to start a new podcast. I dunno if I want to say any more than that… Discussion is discussion, and I think the testing we’ve done so far shows we can do it, but we need more equipment testing and we need to I guess just do it.
Finally I guess I’ll just say this… The people behind WI are both happy and sad to see it go. It most certainly needed to end and now it has. And now there’s not just an empty space, but a broken corpse that I’m seeing a number of podcasters pick over like vultures. Frankly it makes me sick. But whatever. It happens.
This new thing, I dunno how far its going to go, but we’ve all ready made one thing clear… The moment it stops being fun, its over.
lets see if wordpress wants to play nice
some Smarty Hottie art I felt like sharing…
*jaj drains his beer, walks over to the juke box… chooses NIN “Downward Spiral” and hits “play whole cd”. He then exits the bar*
Wired shows Indy 4 some love:
Ebert liked it. Then again, he liked “Tomb Raider”. 😉
Have y’all checked out the Dollhouse trailer yet? I’m excited!
Oh, and morning from Vegas, Pan.
How are we this wet wonderful morning?
I’m not even going to pretend to catch up on the comments.
This is cool
My husband has Red Shift (I think that’s what it’s called), but the above download is a nice little free thing.
EssBee: I haven’t seen the trailer, but I like the idea behind the show. 🙂
572 – It seems like we’ve stalled a bit. More comments!! 🙂
‘Looks at the ceiling’
‘Looks at the floor’
‘Chews lower lip’
Speed Racer was kinda fun.
I’ll just go and watch `Ghost’ three times in a row for penance.
Or I can just sing “Henry the 8th” repeatedly for you, Van.
There’s a neat little lass and her name is Mari-Mac
And make no mistake she’s the girl I’m gonna track
Lots of other fellas try to get her on the back.
But I’m thinkin’ they’ll have to get up early.
Mari-Macs mother’s makin’ Mari-Mac marry me
My mother’s makin’ me marry Mari-Mac
Well I’m gonna marry Mari cause Mari’s takin’ care o’ me.
We’ll all be feelin’ marry when I marry Mari-Mac.
Oh, crap. Wrong song. Now where did I put that thing?
Maybe a rendition of greensleeves done by pumping your armpits might be sufficient.
Too easy. How about belching Silent Night?
Hmm. I seem to recall JOe doing that at the last Christmas Party. Well, it’s no fun being second. 😉
That will do, but only if you record it and send it into Jack so can we cal all hear it.
[JfS Earbuds Update]
Cut / Copy: “In Ghost Colours” Pretty good, I recommend.
MGNT: “Oracular Spectacular” Fixin to listen, heard some songs, liked ’em.
The Presets: “Apocalypso” I concur with TSMs
Portishead: “Three” see above.
[/JfS Earbuds Update]
Thanks. I’ve been meaning to get some of those, but the budget is a little tight right now.
Currently playing: Monkey Gone To Heaven — Pixies
That MGMT single is uber-catchy, but I feel the need to reject I-IV-V pop melody formulas. It’s the responsible thing to do.
I got a bunch of Thievery Corporation tracks from emusic — good stuff. Kinda Massive Attack-ish.
MGMT? I-IV-V pop melody formulas? I’m lost.
I’ll be happy when Rock Band has Doolittle as a downloadable album.
Oh, I’ve got to do a little trickery to get around WP.
I haven’t delved far enough into my music theory to truely understand it. But I can play E-A-B. LOL
I-IV-V meaning the Wild Thing/Louie, Louie/every Green Day song/every Who song chord progression.
“Pretend” by MGMT uses that. . . . really well, I might add. . .
It’s a iPod commerical waiting to happen.
Dang I thing I understand it now.
Notes in western music: A B C D E F G
So a I, IV, and V progression in the key of A would be A, D,E.
in the key of C it would be C, F, G.
in the key of G it would be G, C,D.
I’m pretty sure I could get a job at Clear Channel now.

Anyone going to see Indy IV on the weekend?
That would be an affirmative, ditto. The wife and I will probably make it an afternoon date movie on Friday while the kids are still in school.
We’ll probably catch Narnia with the kids sometime this weekend as well.
Man, it’s only Wednesday, isn’t it? It should be at least late on Thursday by now.
I’ll see it eventually, just not opening weekend.
I sooooooooo need to get out of the office.
I got’s 3 minutes.
If I had 30 seconds here is what I’d do!!:
Just spent 6 hours getting an old PC with a dodgy HD controller to run Puppy Linux for a friend. Ending up having to boot from floppy disk to get the thing to work.
Working the bank holiday weekend, so no seeing Indy 4 till next week, don’t care about spoilers, cos I still will go and see the movie.
Ive got you under my skin
Ive got you deep in the heart of me
So deep in my heart, that youre really a part of me
Ive got you under my skin
Ive tried so not to give in
Ive said to myself this affair never will go so well
But why should I try to resist, when baby will I know than well
That Ive got you under my skin
Id sacrifice anything come what might
For the sake of having you near
In spite of a warning voice that comes in the night
And repeats, repeats in my ear
Dont you know you fool, you never can win
Use your mentality, wake up to reality
But each time I do, just the thought of you
Makes me stop before I begin
cause Ive got you under my skin
I’m wiped out. I feel like someone dropped 40 tons on me. Too much to do and too little time.
I hope it was by ACME.
Hmm. I think it was. Maybe I can unload it on the coyote.
Wow. Everyone’s been pretty quiet today.
Currently playing: Work Hard — Depeche Mode
Writing and drinking can’t be that bad an idea, can it?
Worked for Hemingway.
How about a tour guide presentation?
Penguins in 6 🙂
For the record, “nasty ass” Ladawn is both Eliza’s and Debbie’s twitter friend and what came out of her mouth was as much a surprise and embarrassment to us as it was to everyone else. People are usually more circumspect the first time they’re on mic.
The pool party is in fact the “Farpoint Fool Party” and it’s looking like that will be the last official live WI3D recording.
And Dubshack is a drama queen. Geesh!
Dub needs a pretty dress. 🙂
Ugh. Time to crash.
See y’all tomorrow.
I’m sorry, did Debbie say something? I was too busy not giving a shit.
Whoa whoa whoa….that wasn’t very Deadpan.
Well Heiminway offed himself with a shotgun which may have something deep to see about writing and drinking…or maybe not.
Morning Pan, breakfast ahoy, and no cage fighting till I get my cornflakes.
Did Jack close the jelly bean count or do we still keep going?
Well, I’ll move to the other thread anyway.
