Too Bad I won’t be able to listen to it until tomorrow
Thanks for the surprise, Jack!
Love the unshow!
There’s a lot more to this. I wouldn’t say it’s on the cutting room floor, though. I hope to include some of the other fun stuff in future episodes.
The deuce is real!
BTW – I’m thinking more Austrian then Scottish.
God Van, Im so very sorry…
There’s a moose loose around the hoose.

CW: My daughter playing Legend of Zelda
Uhm. It’s on the Wii. I know that much. Oh and she’s stuck and doesn’t know how to get out. She says it’s just “The Legend of Zelda and that’s all I think.”
Ah a classic game, one /I’m going to buy again when it comes out for the 3DS.
Oh! I just asked cause I be locked out of seeing your photos
Wait, this isnt what is on your Flickr link, is it?
Long Pan and Jack
Jack and Long Pan
Unrelated note. I’m going to take a shower now because I have park on me.
I hate when I get park on me.
But my park can half of the time be The Park Tavern, downtown Denver.
I would also enjoy washing her off me
No you wouldn’t. You’d keep her on you as long as you could. 😉
Mmmm….. Boomer…. Athena… Boomer… Athena and Boomer… Mmmm. Park on me………….. mmmmmm…..
I think I’m in love with Archie Punjabi . . .
Oh ouch! Why wouldnt you be? Mama!
This is for Long Pan and anyone else who isn’t a flickr contact: http://flickr.com/gp/lovelongandprosper/477U04

The chicken was an unmitigated dizzzaster
This fuckin Imperial Stout is growing on me
you make it sound like a bad thing.
I know. It still confuses
Docs warn about Facebook use and teen depression.
“With in-your-face friends’ tallies, status updates and photos of happy-looking people having great times, Facebook pages can make some kids feel even worse if they think they don’t measure up.”
I wish they’d stop blaming symptoms.
I’m starting to enjoy beer.
Hmm is there no way to browse old episodes in the new theme?
Click on “shows” in the bar right below the banner.
Sadly though… There’s no search box. That would be dead useful.
CD: Avery’s The Reverend, their version of a belgian quadrupel ale.
A magnificently delicious beer, Justa Joe you need to try this beer if you haven’t already. Of course that recommendation goes for all other beer loving deadpanites.
I’m sure Lo Pan, and Essbee, living in Colorado already have enjoyed this beer many times, the lucky bastards.
Me loves it as well as its cousin Salvation.
Looks like the Marvel Digital thing is great if you are reading stuff from a year or a year and a half ago. Not great if you are eagerly awaiting the new FF#1 with the white uniforms.
Marvel is getting with the times. As long as the times are not current.
Conservation Of Ninjutsu
You can have three guesses who’s going to win. The first two don’t count.
In any martial arts fight, there is only a finite amount of ninjutsu available to each side in a given encounter. As a result, one Ninja is a deadly threat, but an army of them are cannon fodder.
Also known as The Law of Inverse Ninja Strength: Threat = 1/N, where N = number of Ninjas (or other “Elite Adversaries”).
The reason for this is simple. Twenty-plus Ninjas are ultimately Mooks and, narrative-wise, will be treated as such. A single Ninja is probably a main character, and as such is more important to the story and more likely to be someone with whom the audience identifies.
Ah, the power of narrative will defeat your army of ninjas, however, that one sneaky bastard who the story is about will slit your throat. Gotcha.
Oh, sneaky Deadpan, dropping a Sunday show on me. Jack’s last comment now makes sense.
Oh, Monday . . .
No not in that sense.
Just a quick hop in to let you know you won’t see much of me this week. John’s on Spring Break so I’ll be spending time with him. That means no show notes for this episode and most likely the next.
Surprise Unshow, indeed.
Damn you, 99 Most Essential classical compilations. At $1.99 how can I refuse?
I got mine for $0.99.
all for Carmina Burano O Fortuna by Orff… I just can’t make that up…
I see Jack has discovered TVTropes. Yay! :happy:
Cj: When I want to search for something on the Deadpan site, I enter “[keyword] site:jackmangan.com” into Google.
Jack & Lo: Nicely done on this unshow. It was mucho funo to listeno to. 🙂
Thanks all, it was a blast recording with J0e and Lo. But we still need more on-pod diversity. Ping me – let’s schedule a conversation.
And btw, I recreated the Archives and Search links in the right sidebar.
Can we be “JoLo”?
… and maybe we could go with the big puffy lips and HUGE tracks of land!
This “ping” that you speak of… You may consider this a “ping”.
Unless you mean something else, in which case… Um… I’ll have to figure it out…
In other news, I’m going to be reviewing this album for Metal Asylum:
“What would timeless songs like “New York, New York,” “Lady Is A Tramp,” and “Fly Me To The Moon,” sound like cranked out of Marshall stacks, crooned by members of Cheap Trick, Twisted Sister, Deep Purple, Anthrax, Mr. Big, or Queensrÿche? This can now be experienced on SIN-Atra, a brand new album to be released by Eagle Rock Entertainment”
You had me at “Mr. Big”. Yeesh.
“Why everyone hates ‘Sucker Punch'”
More reason to see the beautiful disaster
C’mon… You saw the trailers. Hot chicks kicking ass and looking pretty? Yeah, that’s not surreal enough for me. Oh, not anymore anyway.
I really don’t like it when geeks are lumped together as “—the kind of guys who lust after Princess Leia and can recite swaths of dialogue from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan—” or “[…]just happen to disproportionately still live in their parents’ basements”…
Beyond disliking this movie geek dude for pretending so hard to not be a geek, I figure he’s got a valid point. Sit back and let Sucker Punch roll over you, instead of expecting something in the vane of Inception… or any other Nolan.
My only concern with Sucker Punch is the “near-rape fantasy” angle. But I’m a bit of a prissy prude, so I’ve got that going for me. 😉
“I really don’t like it when geeks are lumped together as “—the kind of guys who lust after Princess Leia and can recite swaths of dialogue from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan—” or “[…]just happen to disproportionately still live in their parents’ basements”…”
TEB: Public schools in my area are on spring break this week and next. My college doesn’t go on break
until the week of April 18.
Jack: Just now listened to Unshow 59. Thank you for the kind words about my and JohnBoze’s fiction.
J0e, that article is more a glimpse into the author’s deep-seated psychological problems than cultural observation.
Amy: the praise is sincere. I do look forward to more QFE :).
Hopefully Van will see this film in the next day or so and give us the real scoop!
Not out till Friday in the UK. Will be checking it out this weekend certainly.
CW: US Shameless Episode 12
It’s another Monday. How did that happen?
The weekend was sooooo good!
The following Tweet from the wife of Tim Pratt’s wife (Heather Shaw) made me laugh:
“Dear authors w/limited sexual experience; please do not publish sex scenes w/out having your slutty friends proof it”
“slutty friends” FTW
I hope someday to write a slutty sex scene without the help of friends that go that way…
May your hopes be realized. =)
?”We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.” ~Dr. Seuss
The weirdness. Yes.
Recently found out that “Grinche” means “thief”.
Who knew Seuss was trying to teach me vocabulary?
Yes yes, expanding vocabulary and all. Very nice.
I WANT TO HEAR MORE ABOUT THE WEIRD LOVE!
Lejon, I hope that’s not an invitation.
No no, I live in my imagination… and I’ll always have porn…
A darker aspect of the “Super Friends,” the “Slutty Friends.” Slutty Twin powers activate!

My wife and daughter went to see Sucker Punch this weekend. The boy and I stayed home and watched Iron Man on Blu-Ray – I don’t think I can watch that one enough times.
Anyway, without spoiling anything, my women folk didn’t care for the ending.
Do the women folk give that as a “deal breaker” or is the film worth watching even with the ending?
It will be chewing straw next and yehawing.
Will it be rubbing the lotion on it’s skin as it does so?
Van, is there a reason why we’re jumping into the General Lee?
Ah just the tenacious tangent to the use of the term ‘women folk’.
I read a horrible review of Sucker Punch yesterday – not the same one. The previews make it look kinda exciting . . .
CC: brown rice, salmon for her & hake for me, veggies
From Facebook for those who care (Mr. Lo):
We start recording this weekend! We’re ready to wrestle this beast onto tape (yes, tape).
This x 1 million
CW: The Paula Poundstone Show
They have a kid on there from Chandler (about 15 miles south of Pheonix, as he keeps saying) and he’s talking about the Ostrich Festival.
Sorry. He was saying 15 miles “outside” of Phoenix. He wasn’t specifying a direction. The kid won second place in a national geography competition, so don’t go all ballistic on his ass because he did or didn’t get the relationship between Phoenix and Chandler right. My mistake, not his.
OK, OK, put away the pitchforks and torches guys. False alarm.
I’m about to sit down and have a heart to heart discussion with Three Philosophers. I intend to find out exactly what they believe a Belgian Quadruple should taste like.
Those guys put forth a VERY convincing argument!
I’ve never attended that ostrich festival, btw. It does sound fun.
I didn’t know it existed, must have had my head in the sand.
There are really no other “ostrich specific” jokes to be made here.
Unless you wanted to get obtuse and make an “Emu” Phillips reference.
Yep. This subject just lays a giant egg.
Real men play Defender..
But did Defender have giant eggs?
Nicked from NS’s retweet, something you Android users might be interested in:
This Cloud Drive/Cloud Player is pretty awesome. Unless you mainly use an iPhone/iPad. Then, well, sucks to be you… (Or in this case, me.)
Like the video streaming, Amazon doesn’t support Linux, though it sorta kinda maybe works.
Okay, circumstances have me at home instead of work tonight. I am maintaining my sleep schedule meaning I am awake while the rest of the house sleeps. I’m going down to check on the laundry.
When I come back I will live-comment while watching an episode of 21 Jump Street. Episode 4 of Season 1 entitled “Don’t Pet the Teacher,” originally aired April 26, 1987.
I was finishing up 8th grade, last year at Murray Junior High. Already transitioning away from grade school bullies into High School life which would be so much more fulfilling.
Of course, I was also watching 21 Jump Street, so I wasn’t at the peak of sophistication just yet…
Pushing play on the Netflix…
No teaser, just straight into opening credits. Wow, did they do this on an Amiga? That’s actually possible, I suppose, but proper Video Toaster was still a few years away, so probably not.
Nice chyron. by which I mean not at all…
Bad synth scoring, school at night. Vandals.
Lingering shot on sports headline from 1971, hmm
A rose for Miss Chadwick…
Ah, the old captain, can’t remember his name…
“Jank” ah yes Janko I believe.
Can’t remember if he lasted the whole first season even
Sgt Hanson has a flat
That’s Depp’s character.
No Jack in the Mustang
Pretty lady offers him puncture seal, says “Welcome to the 80’s”
She’s Susan Chadwick, could she be the rose-getting teacher?
Some assy kid gives janitor a hard time, called to principal’s office
Kid’s older brother must have been the 1971 headline Stone, makes a crack about his bro being in Cambodia
Hanson arrives at school, yep fix-a-flat lady is his teacher.
English class. The Stone kid is scalping Van Halen tix for $70, gets caught by teach
Stone gives tix to Hanson in hall, tries to sell him a CD player, invites him out for a drink and says he can score a fake ID
Janitor apparently played B-ball with elder Stone brother
Hanson flirts with Miss Chadwick, even though he’s a “student.”
After Hanson leaves, Miss Chadick finds another rose, this time in her car.
(Everyone seems to think Stone is handing out roses but my bet is on janitor)
Stone’s dad has some young chippie
Knowing this show’s budget this music was probably bad in 1987 too
JohnBoze, I think oyu were out of your Depp with this.
Good night :Scissorhands:
Hanson meets Stone there, Stone is hooking folks up with all sorts of goods. They leave, and Stone takes him to go look in Chadwick’s window
The music under all this is distractingly… over.
They are on top of… school? Ah, they are. Stone tells how to break in, but they are just gonna hang out, apparently.
Too clever Jack, can’t come up with another quip to respond…
Hanson thinks Stone is the vandal.
Hanson buddying up with Miss Chadwick again.
Twisted Sister reference? was that a dated ref by then? Can’t tell
Dark gym, bad spooky synth
Someone shooting hoops, imagining a game, then stealing calculators, leaves a rose. Yep, bet its the janitor.
Hanson gave Miss Chadwick a ride home, Stone saw him…
Oh, B-plot has Ioki studying for sgt exam. He’s up late with a Twinkie and a Dr Pepper.
Captain gives Hanson a hard time about case, break-in reported.
$2000 in desktop calculators? It only looked like 5 or 6 of them…
Hanson tells captain about being out with Chadwick, didn’t expect that personally…
Principal and janitor looking for Stone at Chadwick’s class
Locker search, Hanson is there to protest it as illegal.
Hanson shows his badge, argues about searching locker because he want’s to arrest Stone without an illegal search
Stone arrives, Hanson shows him badge too, principal pressures Stone to open locker. It is full of calculators. Hanson arrests him, over his protests that he didn’t put them there.
Stone gets bailed out by dad
Hanson goes to talk to Miss Chadwick, she got a gift from secret admirer, Hanson says wasn’t him, couldn’t be Stone because he was in jail…
Now Hanson makes moves on her
But Hanson can’t stop puzzling over this CD player from secret admirer.
Cut to janitor with elder Stone bro’s trophy, Stone there to give him trouble
Stone knew janitor was doing all the crime, knows he was framed by him, confronts him
Janitor wants to kill stone. Hanson intervenes in nick of time.
Like what I did there?
Still 6 minutes left, why?
Janitor gets speech…
Hanson and Stone make up…
Ioki pulling into car spot, shouts at another guy trying to get same spot. Bet it is his examiner…
Hah, I could write this stuff… or maybe I remember seeing it before.
Now Hanson goes to finish putting moves on Chadwick,
Hah, I remember the “yearbook” closing credits…
Hope that was fun for someone else. I liked it, in a 80’s nostalgia kind of way…
No Holly Robinson in there though… She was hot.
Well JB, that’s more posts today then you’ve done over the last few months.
I’ve done much the same of late with audio content…
Experimenting with Chrome.
“Experimenting with Chrome.”
The name of our “New Wave” band.
Be careful, Ed. Some people say that’s a gateway to owning a Macbook.
Oh Bill …
Even if it might be correct, when you make statements like this
You somehow loose credibility and certainly the “moral” upper hand.
“Civility” is one of the things that the thinking class is supposed to be fighting for … and Mr. Maher has certainly abandoned THAT fight.
I thought Maher was supposed to be a comedian?
I think his show falls more into the category of “Poignant Commentary” or one liners about the absurd. Or it used to.
When politicians started taking him serious I think he sort of morphed into the Anti-Fox.
I’ve really only seen bits of his show a few times.
You can be funny or mean. You can’t be both.
But you can be mean to someone that somebody else finds funny.
Maybe to some, but perhaps that’s because they enjoy being mean? I don’t. It’s like watching America’s Funniest Home Videos. Most guys get hit in the nuts. Apparently that’s funny. Sit-coms are similar. They masquerade as funny by being mean.
I found Bill’s comments funny, but I agree with JOe. The kind of political clout Maher pedals is hurt by slanderous remarks. He should have just called her a “Reality TV Star,” which is considered an even bigger slam, without raising the ire of his audience.
Time for a thread redirect.
Holy crap – – Manta Ray attacks? I’ll get started on the related SyFy Saturday movie script.
It should be finished in about 10-15 minutes.
I’ve seen SyFy movies about goblin sharks and sharktopus’, why not manta rays?
That is unfortunate, because Maher is generally our absolute best political commentator, bar none. But now, when he makes a really important point, the object of his critique will just reply, “Oh, his statements don’t matter – – he’s the c-word guy”.
Wasabi Soy Almonds for breakfast.
I’m leaving work early to take my kids to see HOP! I’m excited.
WWords can’t express how ugh that sounds..the wasabi almonds that is and not Hop.
My timing is shit.
That is all.
Wasabi Soy Almonds are amazingly delicious. Don’t knock til you try?
If it has wasabi in it it, like fish, I could show you what I had for my previous meal if you get my drift..
Just a quick hop in Pan. Pretty quiet around here.
Hubby and I did do somethin silly and ordered matching iPad 2s on line. Turns out they’ll engrave them for free so we put our name on them so we could tell the difference. In 3 – 4 weeks our netbooks will be obsolete
How you going to sync your iPads if you have to travel somewhere?
With how far behind I am in podcasts, I could go two weeks without worrying about syncing.
I find the only time I use my netbook now is for Deadpan movie play by plays. Hubby’s netbook will never be obsolete. He’s got his books on it so that’s what he syncs his Sony Reader to.
Now just watching the noon news. Some friends are coming over for tea later this afternoon
Tea & crumpets? 😉
I agree yum. But, I don’t have crumpets. Did make puffed wheat squares yesterday so that’s what’ll go out on the table.
CP: Iris — Live
AMG! There’s this place across the street from my office! http://www.corleones.net/

I died and went to heaven just now when I saw that.
The new Dropkick Murphys album is pretty good. Apparently it is also a concept album.

Keep going, Jack. You’ll get caught up some day.
I’m completely ensconced in a PR maelstrom today.
did I spell any of that correctly?
Cj: Yes, you spelled all of it correctly. :happy:
CJ, your track record is better than mine, and I’m totally unensconced.
A Puerto Rican maelstrom?
Anchor Porter, you are indeed a blessing.
I’m an idiot for missing my chance at Pliny the Younger. That is all.
Ah…the beers I would drink if TARDIS twer mine
We’re about to watch United States of Tara and Nurse Jackie. I do love Nurse Jackie a lot . . . I’m fond of Tara.
Showtime is really stepping it up with their series.
Well enjoyed the new Nurse Jackie, but didn’t feel the new season got off to a cracking start.
That was so a goal!! (Phx-Dal)
I’m not going into details here. Hit me up in chat if you are actually interested.
First ever image achieved from Messenger when it achieved Mercury Orbit (rather than previous flybys):
Never got into the series myself on the iPhone, but Tap Tap Revenge 4 is now available for Android:
The Official Twitter App seems to have stopped updating..Hmmmm.
Agreed, Van. I predict that this season sees Jackie trying to get sober (on her own).
Forgot to say re: yesterday: Bill Maher is a douche. And not because he called Sarah Palin a c*#& (a word I use and like quite a bit, but don’t want to ruffle feathers!).
Thats no “c” word!
Do a google for Steve Cram..

This is cool. At a recent spoken word gig, Henry Rollins found out that people were charged $10 too much for tickets. So, before he started, he walked into the audience and handed out $10 to everyone there, as an apology for being overcharged.
I may not always dig his music be Henry’s a fuckin cool cat. Good on him!
And to to he used to purposely start fights with the crown in his Black Flagg days. Now hims handing out cash instead of beat downs!
FIRST Rule of the Black Flag Concert.
NO ONE TALKS about the Black Flag Concert!
Lets start over…
“And to THINK he used to purposely start fights with the CROWED in his Black Flagg days. Now HE’S handing out cash instead of beat downs!”
Im just fuckin going back to bed…
Too much Topless Robot is draining Lo Pan’s INT. Thank goodness his WIS is still okay.

It is pretty sad that we’re getting our good political commentary from comedians. Considering that it is practically their job description to say/do outrageous things, to make your brain gasp.
I disagree. That seems to be an accepted role of comedians for millennia, and it also seems to span cultures. What better person to criticize the king than the jester?
The good ones kept their heads.
And the better ones give good…
How not to react when you get a bad review
If you love something, let it go, let it get critically mauled, then hunt down and put all the critics to the sword.
Or you could just go do something more interesting instead..
I saw that yesterday. LOL I predicted the path it would take a couple comments in.
To me, the most interesting thing is just how quickly people started asking for comments to be closed and how quickly the reviewer actually did close the comments. It blew up on the 28th around 10am and JH’s last FU around noon. Comments closed at 4:36pm.
My initial thought was that JH was being puppet-ed, so I dug around and, unless someone went to serious work, she’s actually the one saying stupid things.
Sad also that this isn’t even close to the first time this has happened. I read through something like this that was something like 50 pages of comments back and forth with the author and audience doing exactly the same thing.

I come home from lunch with my Boo. Hubby’s in the office on the computer. I want to be with hubby so I say, “Are we in this room”
hubby’s reply: *shrug* “eh, who knows?”
My reply, “I love you”
Silly hubby :cheerful:

OK – so.. I guess I’ll just go public with this, even though, I don’t really think it’s necessary for everyone to know. We’re all friends here, right? It’s not a secret and anyone who has seen Dan’s Facebook page status change is already aware.
We split up. He moved out. There are no guarantees that LLAP will return.
Sorry to disappoint anyone. Heck, I’m sorry for a lot of things these days.
Sorry to hear that Cj.
It actually happened a while ago… I just haven’t really felt the need to blab about it.
I’m sorry to hear that, too, Cj. *hugs*
Been there. You wanna chat you know where to find me. K?
Sorry CJ, I had no idea. 🙁
CJ: I had no idea either. So sorry to hear that. I hope things improve for you soon.
Cj: BFP, honey
I am indeed sorry, CJ. I hope things can work out. It goes without saying, but I’ll do it anyway – we’re here for you.
Thanks for the kind thoughts/words. I’m really OK.. It’s actually been a long time coming. Hopefully cheerier times ahead.
Yes, you hang in there. You have friends nearby, so that is very good, but know the rest of the ‘Pan has your back from afar…
What everyone said. That was a brave thing to share.
BST is confusing me.
