  1. Hey Everyone! I posted my (crappy iPhone quality) pics on flickr for those who wish to take, in the Deadpan group.

    If you dont have access to the flickr pool, then email me and I can get the pics to you that way.

  2. Your crap joke for the day:

    *A boy asks his granny, ‘Have you seen my pills, they were labelled LSD?’**Granny replies, f**k the pills, have you seen the dragons in the kitchen?!**

  3. Does anyone have a good site to find out what radio stations are playing at a given time?
    I just tried yes.com and it has gone out of business just to thwart me. ARGH!!

  4. It’s the box attached to my cassette player in my car.

    Nope. Not kidding. But my 16 year old car has not had a car payment in a looooooong time.

    • This seemed very out of character for him.
      Was he trying to chase her back to her husband or is his character finally showing some growth … creepy, abusive growth.

      • It was weird, almost as if he was some dodgy spy programmed to respond in a certain way when somebody ‘needs’ him.

  5. Dunno about the iPhone types, but for Android users – Google Now can listen to a song that’s playing and identify it. There are also a number of apps out there that will do similar. I’ve had varying degrees of success with others, but Google’s actually does pretty well.

    Soundhound and Shazam are pretty good and I think available for both Apple and Google devices.

  6. I don’t understand hubby. On days when I just can’t pull my lazy ass out of bed, he will go to work and leave all the lights on in the house. I woke up this morning and the lights were on in the washroom, the kitchen, the dining room, and the hall to the back door. *sigh*

  7. “If you’re present in what you’re doing, you don’t think about the impact it’s gonna have. If you’re in a studio recording and thinking, “This is gonna be an epic record! We’re doing something here!” then you’re a douche, and you need to stop right now.” -Kelley Deal

    • Also! Its a little known fact that for the past few seasons, the shows scripts were created by the writers brainstorming by communally shitting in a toilet and rearranging the feces into words and ideas. Its true. GO look it up on the Gewgles.

  8. Ooooo I get theSyFy channel. Its fuzzy but it is airing all of the Star Trek movies back-to-back. ST IV is now starting.

    That movie is dedicated the members of Challenger, fyi.

    • Enjoyed the first episode Essbee, even if I was getting flashbacks to Once Upon a Time (see who is playing the killer).

  9. Back from the new Trek. Overall, I was able to enjoy it. Though, it’s not your father’s Star Trek anymore. I don’t know that I get a warm fuzzy about JJ Abrams taking on the next Star Wars movies.

  10. Me: I think I might be drunk
    Hubby: how much did you drink?
    Me: shows hubby empty whiskey glass
    Hubby: you’re done already?
    Me: yes
    Hubby: you’re drunk

  11. Well it could be Bill Murray or perhaps not:

    @BiIIMurray: Apparently Neil Armstrong used to tell unfunny jokes about the Moon, and follow them up with “Ah, I guess you had to be there.”

    • I’ve been interested in astronomy for the last couple of years. I’ve been able to spot Venus(duh), Jupiter, Saturn and Mars with my naked eye and last year I got to see Uranus with a telescope. But I’ve never seen Mercury. I guess I should make plans now. Thanks for the heads up Pixie.

  12. Just got back from seeing Star Trek. We both quite enjoyed it. All the nods to previous Treks were cute.

    But!!! I have a question. I will deliberately be vague to avoid spoilers. Hopefully, those who have seen the movie will know what I am talking about.

    They had lots of “cures”. Why did they have to bring back the one?

    • The theories I’ve read online suggest that because they knew “the one” would certainly work, it was their best bet. The rest might have still been in a questionable state.

    • I’m slow on the uptake today, even though I’ve seen the movie I have no idea what you are talking about..unless it’s the Jesus tribble.

  13. Alright, for the Facebook challenged – set the DVR’s for May 29th on Cartoon Network…well, at least in the U.S. I don’t know how widely it’s distributed beyond that.

    The Lego Star Wars guys are releasing a new special. They are also running the first two that evening again as well. While the little ones will enjoy it for the straight up Star Wars/Lego crossover, those of us with a bit more seasoning will likely catch onto more of the in-jokes.

  14. Also saw the Star Trek movie this morning with friends. Hadn’t done that in a while so nod to the MMMeeetup influence.

    Cures….hmmm, Ditto’s point could be valid. Making the other cures available could have proved problematic in a time crunch. Ed’s point seems possible. But Jack wins with “poor writing”. Yes, I paraphrased Jack.

  15. Tomorrow is a stat holiday here in Canadaland. We are celebrating Queen Victoria’s birthday. I asked hubby if we can have four day weekends every week. He said wasn’t likely to happen in the foreseeable future. Spoil sport.

  16. I feel so disconnected from hockey atm. Things are too busy around here. But I get the sense that the Detroit/Chicago series is pretty good. I might have to watch the game tonight.

    • I was listening to the Nerdist podcast on the way in this morning and they were joking about Mumford & Sons. Something about angry Irish bands singing about their hard lives but from an age long past. But I’ve never listened to any Mum & Son, so what do I know?

    • This is the problem with the whole FAQ:
      “Look, I know Star Trek is science fiction, but hasn’t Trek always at least nominally tried to get science right? Shouldn’t a Star Trek movie give the tiniest shit about such things?”

      I respond: since when? The TV shows have, in general, handled the science better than the movies, but you shouldn’t be expecting hard SF when seeing a Star Trek movie. I love the franchise, but you will only be disappointed if you expect it to be something it isn’t.

      • Though science fiction can be the harder variety, like Asimov, or more future speculative, like Trek, the main thing it needs is internal consistency. Though, Trek has never been able to do to well in the internal consistency department, either.

        So, I’ll at least give Abrams props for better internal consistency – for example, the Klingon home world lies just outside the orbit of Pluto and Earth’s gravity exerts a much greater pull on metal than it does on the moon.

  17. Well, WNDR Wolf says on FB that he’s fine. He doesn’t stop by here THAT often, but if he does, he should know I was thinking of him during that big mess.

    I also hope that LostRalph’s family are ok.

    • Finally heard from a friend of mine an hour ago. He used to be my neighbor and had helped me clean out my sister’s house when it was destroyed in a tornado 2 years ago. He had since moved to OK.
      Turns out he was hunkered down in his office, just south of Moore and was 2 blocks from the destruction path.

      Clearly I need to avoid being near HIM in the spring.

    • It is somewhat depressing how much I’ve come to learn about this debacle without having actually seen the show or read any articles about it.

  18. My OKC Fam is all good. They live 10 miles just NE of Moore.


    I hope Ralph’s fam and any other Deadpan peeps are safe.

    Stupid Nature.
