I’ll get your cape.
Well what do you know, there’s a Deadpan in my feed.
For a belated mom’s day my Boo has booked a brewery tour followed by a lunch today. I guess the tour comes with a glass and some non-alcoholic drinks I get to take home. I imagine I will pick up some beer for hubby as well
I know of this place, it’s actually right across from Fate Brewery in Scottsdale.
They made local news headlines a few years ago when the owners went batshit on a negative Yelp reviewer. I can only imagine how crazy they got with Gordon Ramsey. That’s an episode I would watch! Fortunately, I’ve never set in this place.
The FB page has been very amusing to browse. :)
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.
Soundhound and Shazam are available on iOS devices.
Scored 8 out of 10. And I’m not completely convinced about one of the two I missed, but rules are rules.
Also 8 out of 10. That was some bullshit right there.
based on your comments, I decided not to do the test.
Fav lyric line today:
‘Don’t let your mouth write a cheque that your butt can’t cash’
Hmmm, Top Gun must have been subtitled for release in the U.K.
/coat to wear over my flight suit.
Sweet! Sarah Shahi is going to be a regular on “Person of Interest”.
Just watched the penultimate episode for this season, great stuff.
I still have to watch the last two. I’ve really enjoyed the addition of Agent Shaw. I really want to see her beat the crap out of Root. :)
I decided to take today off. I dare anyone to try and stop me.
Well it would require me to invent a teleport..
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*
” 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.”
Works fine here, streamed nicely over my 3G connection to my phone.
RE: ditto’s comment. I guess I start watching Person of Interest now!
It’s a cool show, gets better when Amy Acker came on the scene in S1 and it went all William Gibson.
I agree. It takes a while to build, but I found the show interesting, so it wasn’t hard for me to stick with it. And that surprised me. I haven’t liked the two lead actors in the past. Obviously, I was very reluctant to start watching.
This is definitely worth giving a shot if you are a Gibson fan.
Or Les Paul?
Les Silliness. ;)
I always preferred Tiffany to Debbie Gibson.
Martika man myself.
Eiko, eiko, I know.
Rick Springfield was the dreamiest.
That’s not what Jessie’s girl said.
He had drugs in his pocket.
Today there will be no fooling around. Must get some work done if I want to take tomorrow and make it a four day weekend instead of three
“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
Its as true in life as it is in the recording studio :)
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.
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.
CW: The Fall – Episode 1
Gillian Anderson still looks rather tasty.
wtf show is this with her now what now!?!?!?!?!??!!?
Yeah, what he said!
DO you prefer the mid twenties short red-hair X-Files version or the early 40′s long blonde hair Madonna-esq version?
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.
And considering that you are the king of bad puns, it crossed my mind about asking why you needed a telescope to see Uranus, but I decided that might be too much.
Do it anyway. Do it anyway!
CD: Little White Rye
Just watched the finale of this series of Doctor Who.
Wow. I cannot wait for more of this story in November. <3
Oops. I have a comment in murgatory because I had a brainfart and typed in my Gmail address instead of my Yahoo one, so WordPress doesn’t recognize me.
I freed Amy’s comment last night – at about 1% power on my phone even.
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.
They could get it faster? That was my guess.
They could not get it faster. Sorry ditto, that answer doesn’t work for me. However, I will accept Ed’s answer
Because the screenwriters left that hole wide open. I asked that same question.
I can create a Spoilers-allowed Star Trek post, if people would like to discuss it on Deadpan.
I did see it yesterday. I do have an opinion.
*shrug* There isn’t a Star Trek movie that doesn’t have plot holes. In general, I don’t worry too much about it.
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.
And today is apparently a certain Maki’s birthday! Shared with podcaster Chris Lester and wookie Peter Mayhew.
Happy getting older, JohnBoze.
Happy birthday JB!
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.
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.
I too saw the star trek movie this weekend. I was quite pleased with it.
Bracing for severe weather. The winds are already hitting gusts of 70.
Be safe, Midwest Pan. Its turning brutal out there
What spoder mans aid
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.
Just finished watching the Doctor Who season finale. It was definitely on of the better Matt Smith episodes
I had a double shot of whiskey again. God I’m a cheap drunk
Shot three. My fingers are gears
And what whiskey are you drinking – - (if you’re still able to type).
We went with a 12 year old Glenfiddich. Hubby prefers the more peaty whiskeys but I tend to go with the smoother ones. I won this month.
There’s some serious chain lightning going on. Pretty cool to watch.
Lightning is best-viewed through buildings and trees in your hotel parking lot. ;)
In light of this, Boy George has announced that he will no longer Tumbl For Ya.
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’ll live tweet with you if you do.
And it looks like one of my posts is in moderation because I posted two links. :(
Yep. You & I need to talk about Star Trek! ;)
CP: Winter Winds — Mumford & Sons
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?
One more thing about ST:ID… It was nice to see Noel Clarke again. He played Mickey in Dr. Who.
Yes! I agree.
I am in love with this Breeders box set, Mr. Lo Pan.
Its soooooo beautiful. Ill bring over the package next time we meet.
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.
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.
