(Bunny has outdone herself on this week’s Show Notes. I greatly appreciate the time she takes each week to do this. – Jack)
(dictionary.com) – “The term ‘Greasy Nipples’ refers to the hundreds/thousands of comments left on each episode. The humorous moniker came about in the early days of the show, when Jack would randomly choose comments from the most recent episode and read them onpod. After a pre-determined amount of time, the winner would win a free “Greasy Spoon” meal with Jack at a restaurant of Jack’s choosing (often Denny’s. . . yeah. . . ). At one point in time, Jack recognized that he repeated the word ‘comments’ excessively while describing the game, and thus decided to mix it up, using silly words in place of ‘comments’, such as ‘nipples’, ‘ernest borgnines’, ‘cyborgs’, etc. The term ‘nipples’ seemed to be the funniest, and thus, the segment was renamed ‘Greasy Nipples’.”

this should be fun
ok so far i had to give my gender twice. where they trying to trip me up?
Morning bunny, wish I could say the same
I hate these DiSC tests and ones like them. i get a list of 4 words and have to pick 1 for most and 1 for least. what if all 4 describe me. grrrrr
The world needs more grrrrr!
I think my hubby must have some vampire blood in him. It’s a beautiful sunny day out and he doesn’t want me to open the living room curtains until after he leaves for work
Vanamonde is playing the teddy bear again 😉 grrrr 😉
I’m sitting in my east facing office, with the blinds open, basking in the morning sun. Hubby is sitting in the west facing dining room, curtains closed, eating breakfast.
Poor Lindsay . . .
I could use some sun. My back yard soon will qualify as a great lake if it keeps raining
doesn’t sound so great to me, reaper.
I dont get the disappointment and hate for Across the Sea. What were people expecting? It was by far the second best episode of the year, and quite frankly after learning Jacob and Man in Black’s back stories I really dont give a fuck what happens to the Losties. Give me a show about those two over Jack and Kate and company any day. The guy who wrote that article missed every point completely. Everything he bitched about can be said about every episode of Lost from the beginning. “Its all just silly” is probably the single worst argument you could try to make against this show. That guy should probably try watching the episode next time instead of clearly fast forwarding. Im all for personal preference and in no way is Lost perfect, but if youre gonna call an episode “the single worst one” make some good fucking points. What a joker. “Oh no, I didnt get all the answers I wanted”. Fucking get over it. Youre not going to. If you want to be spoon fed go watch re-runs of Friends.
Lo, I did like the flushing comment. That is one thing I thought was silly. I was hoping something more (read less toilet like) would happen.
Bunny, it really isn’t that great. It is most of the reason had that tree fall over this year.
About every 50 years or so my house becomes part of this lake:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Winnebago because of flooding since I live about 100 feet from it. I have heard some make the argument it should be one of the great lakes but I don’t think it was very convincing.
I didnt see it as “flushed” at all. That just a bad pun the guy used to descried how he hated the episode. It was all good to me.
Tho Sci-Fi squad is usually retarded so I shouldnt be surprised.
Reaper, when I was young and lived on a farm, every spring the local lake would flood. It didn’t affect our property, but the waters would flood into the ditches on either side of the road. You could literally fish from the driveway during that time of the year. The jack fish were always good that time of the year. 🙂
Well I’ll avoid the sea of vitriol by bunking off to see The Hot Tub Time Machine at the flicks.
Be sure not to flush.
I wish I had a hot tub. Don’t care about the time machine part.
Have a good time, Van
You should care.
I didn’t read the LOST article. I’m too busy admiring my newly touched-up thumb and daydreaming.

Bunny, There is a ditch that runs around my house right now but the lake level doesn’t get high enough to fish from but that would be pretty sweet. though if it did getting to my house would be kinda hard so it might not be so cool.

Go cry to your mother. Who isnt really your mother but sends you on a path that you have no way of winning cause shes tired of being the keeper of the light and just wants to die and knows youll do it if she pisses you off enough.

YOU STAY OUT OF THIS!!!!!!!!!! YOURE JUST TRYING TO START A WAR YOU DONT HAVE TO FIGHT

The end is nigh
Oh… we’ll if you include “KERBLEWIE” then youre good to go
Lo Pan, you forgot the “!!!!!!” those are very important also

Well wasn’t that impressed with HTTM, will have to watch Grosse Pointe Blank soon in an effort to remember John Cusack has done good movies..
Im not sure you should have go into that movie expecting to be impressed.
Another 2 points (then I’m done being that annoying Lost guy):
Awhile back, I remember thinking that the “fix-up-the-van” episode was a pointless throwaway – but in retrospect, that one was pretty damn important.
And also – someone please tell me where I’ve seen that actress (the mom) before? It’s on the tip of my brain.
The fake mom or dead mom? Fake mom is Alison Janney (sp?) of West Wing fame. And other stuff Im sure
The “war” was a fizzle.
Well, time to put the beer back in the cooler.
You want blood???????? You got it!!!!
Well indeed Lo Pan, but a few more laughs would have been nice.
Theres enough laughs for a renter. Definitely wouldnt have seen it in the theater if it wasnt free.

Some of Ty Mattson’s artwork for Lost is now available from ABC’s store:
I know I shouldn’t laugh but I can’t help it:
Yeah, the ghost mom was distractingly attractive. Did we ever get the fake mom’s motives for all of the bad stuff she did? Or was it just “crazy is as crazy does”?
Hmmm…. Lost. I’m kinda lukewarm about the episode. As a series, Lost has been pretty entertaining, but my gut tells me that the writers spent a little too much time creating mysteries, and not enough time on closure. As a result this week’s episode seems a bit contrived.
I’ve always liked the idea that the characters of Lost are flawed and by taking a “true” path they are becoming complete people and their changes of survival heightened. However, with all the indiscriminate killing going on by both sides of the camp if there ends up being a “right” side, I don’t think they’ll be able to reconcile that side to be “ethical.” Which kind of shoots down the whole “ethical” journey side of things. On the other hand, if we find out that the island and it’s long term residents/stewards were just fucking with the cast, and the whole point was to escape the island the whole time, that wouldn’t be as disappointing.

I miss you all.
I think the mom motives were age and weariness. She presumably had been guarding the light for a really long time, couldn’t really die (like Jacob couldn’t really die-until he did) and needed a way to secure the light and give up. Hence the “Thank you” before she died.
…which she wasn’t supposed to be able to.
Other topics than Losts? Okay, I’ve been thinking of unfollowing Sigler on Twitter because there is only so much of his Chocodiles addiction I find news worthy. =P
“I’ve made it so that you’ll never be able to harm each other”
“Being thrown in the light cave is a fate worse than death”
End of episode, Jacob throws brother into cave.
Maybe “harm” was too strong a word.
Rhettro, the only reason I don’t find Sigler’s addiction to be to much is that tweets are so short
But numerous. LOL
I follow my mostly local hockey team on Twitter and I wonder what they will send me during the summer since the season is over. BTW they won the clark cup. Go Gamblers!! yes that is there real name.
Rhettro, ya 3 today. I think he has tweeted more about Chocodiles more than I have ever tweeted

Nut is a hard shelled fruit of some plants that has an indehiscent seed. While a wide variety of dried seeds and fruits are called nuts in English, only a certain number of them are considered by biologists to be true nuts. Nuts are an important source of nutrients for both humans and wildlife.
Nuts are a composite of the seed and the fruit, where the fruit does not open to release the seed. Most seeds come from fruits, and the seeds are free of the fruit, unlike nuts like hazelnuts, hickories, chestnuts and acorns, which have a stony fruit wall and originate from a compound ovary. Culinary usage of the term is less restrictive, and some nuts as defined in food preparation, like pistachios and Brazil nuts, are not nuts in a biological sense. Everyday common usage of the term often refers to any hard walled, edible kernel, as a nut.
Also its a very busy show with virgins being sacrificed. Its very collegy and cool. I dont mean “nuts” in a bad way.

Seriously. I remember when it first came out. It wasn’t too long before people were getting $150 for some rare cards. It’s very easy to sink a ton of money into that.
The Black Lotus was the $200 hot rarity, back when I was paying attention.
I just got a huge craving for Count Chocula cereal. I’ve had it I think once in my life, and I eat almost no junk food anymore. I should drown this craving in port.
I think I fully quit paying attention when the third expansion pack came out. There’s a place not too far from me, and the only business I see them conducting is holding Magic games. Offering a space, not even setting anything up. It’s quite a bit of square footage, and they’ve been there for a decent amount of time. Boggles my mind, but somehow they seem to keep the lights on.
Look at those show notes! Go, Bunny!!
Haven’t played Magic, but my son collects Yu-Gi-Oh cards. I’m more of a fan of games with playing pieces, so I generally avoid fantasy card games.
And go Bunny!
Rhettro: I tried it many, many moons ago. It’s okay, but I think piece-based games are far superior.

Anyone Else listen to CNET’s Buzz out loud?
I have been listening for about 4 years and at the time the show was mostly Tom, Molly, and Veronica. Veronica is gone and I think the show is less fun but with Tom is being replaced by Rafe. I don’t know if I can take him everyday. The show is even less fun when Rafe is on IMO. Maybe I’ll stick around for the Molly rants but I just can’t see the show being as much fun.
It would be like Deadpan with out the nipples
Oh Rhett….GREAT fucking song
I do not listen to said show, reaps.
Anyone else seen the trailer for Human Centipede? Blech.
it’s official no more flashfoward (and others)but V will be back:
Blech… I just realized that going from Two Girls One Cup to Human Centipede is a seamless transition.
Good thing I watch none of those shows.
Aw – I would have voted the other way: Keep Flashforward, cut V. But I like them both, so glad one is hanging around.
That was foul.
I prefer V myself. I tend to gravitate toward Scifi dealing with space in some way more often than not. I also have fond memories of V in the 80’s.
Much like 1-UPs original lineup on 1UP Yours, the original lineup on Buzz Out Loud was the best. They had exactly the right chemistry.
And sadly, that’s over. 1UP is a memory. BOL wasn’t as good with Jason, but it wasn’t bad. Then it really dropped off when Molly went missing and they imported all the younglings. Tong was enough to get me to quit, all by himself. Putting him and Del Conte together was a disaster. I like Rafe, especially when Tom’s got him flustered by saying something patently ridiculous, but… It’s Tom that has been the backbone of BOL, the only constant. And while it has been nice enough having Molly back, BOL -is- Tom now. When he goes… so does the heart of the show.
I just wish Leo had been able to snag Molly when he tempted Tom away.
I could go on… =)

“Have you tried turning it off and on again?” that would make me LOL, but I don’t think anyone here has seen the IT crowd.

NS, “I like Rafe, especially when Tom’s got him flustered by saying something patently ridiculous”. That is the only time I like Rafe but it looks like those days are over. Tom’s dry humor got me through the Molly-less days but that is gone also. Tong isn’t easy to listen to either but when Nichole Lee was on I deleted the episode with out listening.
At one point I listed to BOL and 404. One had to go because it was to much over lap BOL won but i might give 404 another try. I just can’t bring myself to not listed to some tech podcast and i would prefer a daily one.

Reaper – I like Lee. She gives good advice with the right amount of decorum and tech excitement. And I cannot stand the 404. I listened a few times and … yeah. Not for me.
Although I’d rather listen to them than read demoncat.

In my book, “Ocean Man” is a real weener. 🙂
Ocean Man is not an island
NS, I don’t like Lee because of how she talks thats all.
To be fair, my knee has hurt all week long for no reason, I gave myself a cardboard cut under my thumbnail that comes out through the cuticle, and I am coated in blue ink to my arm pits from work.
Demoncat is just the insult to my injury.
(See what I did there? I’m like a special flower.)
Ack. Sorry, that flower link contains profane language and therefore may not be work safe and I always try to be aware that other’s may be monitoring your activities!
I lost my coffee.
Over on FB, some folks have been discussing
I’m not sure if we can discuss this here, as it borders heavily into the religious, but I’d really really like to know what the ladies think of his safety plan. I’m very curious if the reaction to his plan is divided on a gender gap as well as a religious one.
I hear an echo. 😉
NS: He’s an idiot. They may prefer to structure their relationship that way, and they have a right to do so, but if you can’t base a relationship on trust then you have nothing.
NS: I read to “. . . time with the Lord” and came back here.
Ah NS beat me to it.
Grinds teeth in frustration.
NS, because the link has the word fuck you in it I thought it was selfexplanatory
If JN was dead this would make him spin in his grave:
I beat you both. 😛

No Black Lotus. 🙁

CP: Aneurysm — Nirvana
Time to get some lunch.
I want this card:
I refuse to watch the new Gladiator remake…er… Robin Hood. However Cate is not only swoonable but also “last 10 minutes on-able”.
“last 10 minutes” – haha
This makes me want to throttle someone:
Cate is definately on the swoon list.

Shine I’ll stand by you
Don’t try and push me away
’cause I’m just gonna stay
You can shine I won’t deny you
And don’t be afraid it’ll all be ok
Do you know my name
Well I ain’t gonna take that big time line
won’t be beat by a lie
Gonna call out to these embers waiting to ignite
Gonna pull you up
By your love, by your love and tell you
Shine I’ll stand by you…
I can see the frown you wear
All around like some faded crown
Like a watch over wound
Gonna call down to this diamond buried underground
Gonna pull you up by your love, by your love and tell you
When it’s said and done
What you need will come and time won’t let me
Let you let me waste it this time shine…
Thats a touchy article, EssBee.
I listen to the podcast of a local political radio host and one of the things I enjoy most about the show is how he goes off on tangents. Todays odd topic: whos the best musician named Steve (or a variation of it) this grew from an earlier tangent about names.
Clearly Steve Winwood wins.
Just as I suspected Raid consistency failed. let the fun begin.
cover me I’m going in!
Hmmm… that joshlindonstrom is one paranoid dude.
And, now I’ve caught up.
RE: MtG – I have several cards that I value, even if I never play the game again. Although, at this point it might be wise to simply build some play-decks for the inevitable “itch to play”, and bulk sell the rest.
It was a good game for a very long time…
Pair of Noids???
That Dominos pizza founder was a paranoid dude, too. LOL
Steve Winwood (yelch)
While his song “hey, hey, Rachel, dear” may never be a huge hit:
And I’m alone… Time to run around the Unterwebs nekkid!

waiting for background initialization to finish so I can start the check than off to copy data

Misfits of Science… Why hasn’t that been put on DVD?
My days exploits. I’m sure most won’t be interested or have any idea what i am talking about here but for those who do:
[geek] well that when better than expected. I took a backup of the exchange 2007 drive minus the stores and logs (that was the only thing on it) after I emptied all the stores by moving mail boxes to a new server. than i deleted that exchange drive and removed 2 bad drives. i had one spare so i put that one in and recreated the array after formating the drive I restored the exchange drive.
The only store I could’t move was the public folders. so I dismounted the store copied the .EDB file to a different drive and copied it back when the array was ready.
The only other percoution I took was before deleting the bad drive I set all the exchange services to manual and restarted the server. when when the array was back i set the services back to automatic and restarted again. Exchange works exactly as it did before. Now i just need to get another drive so i can grow the array back to the original size so I can start moving users back to the old server. for backup and restore I just used MS Backup for the whole thing.

DNF is still not going to happen Amy. The developer 3D Rhelms went under last year. This is recycled footage from 2007 I believe. That doesn’t mean some other company couldn’t purchase the intellectual property and make DNF, but as far as I know, that hasn’t happened yet.
As a side gamer’s note, I finished Mass Effect 2 this week and didn’t loose any of my squad mates. I think ME 1 & 2 standout has having one of the most satifying end game sequences in gaming history. Can’t wait for ME 3. At some point I’ll go back and create a real asshole of a character and play through ME1 & 2 again. LOL Now I need to finish Batman, Fallout 3 and Dragon Age.
I did however loss my redheaded personal assistant *sniff*

No problem Amy. I’m sure at some point someone will make a proper Duke sequel.
And still more gaming info.
I played quite a bit of this while at the hotel in Atlanta last week. I have to say this is one of the best portable games I ever played. But there are a couple of big caveats. The first is you really need to be a fan of turned based strategy games to enjoy this, the second is, the game functions on a much broader spectrum of DnD 3.5 rules that one might expect. So it takes a while to get a feel for the interface and truly understand how to play the game. But once you do, you have a sort of portable Neverwinter Nights / animated DnD Minatures game to play. All the negative comments at Amazon are accurate, the interface needs to be streamlined, there should be a group follow option, primary attacks should be mappable to a hot key etc. But what the negative reviewers won’t say is that there is almost 100 hours of gaming to be had to finish. The game has a lot of replayability value, and there is way more depth than a quick glance would tell.
Crap. I really don’t want the Flyers to win.
Holy moley. . . . . .
DL’ing Portal at present. Moist delicious cake…
Funny y’all should mention it, I had my hands on Black Lotus this very evening. Er, Bl4k Lotus, actually, my high school buddy Brandon Patton’s alter-ego with MC Frontalot. It was a good show, Brandon opened with a six-song solo set, then after a little Vilification Tennis, MC Frontalot took the stage.
Ran into a couple other folks from good ol’ St. Paul Central, it was a fun time

Vanamonde: I guess my post has disappeared into the ether(net). Thanks for the link. The thing is, it’s been done before, just not by Google. Companies for years have been cataloging MAC addresses and such to use for hyper-accurate positioning. If your cell has wifi, for example, you can be traced to roughly within six inches. Maybe a foot, tops.
Since this is Google, now it’s hit the front page for average Jane and Joe.
Rhettro: That game sounds like something right up my alley. I really like turn-based tactics games. Final Fantasy Tactics was really good, for instance. Hopefully I can find something in Linux land like it, as I don’t have any consoles apart from an NES.
I personally have a very hard time with large-scale tactics games. If there’s a couple parties fighting, I’m good. Have to manage armies across a country, and it’s too much for my small brain to handle. I lose. Badly. Epically.
While it’s not a tactics game, I actually have Lunar: Eternal Blue, but no system. I tried to get an emulator to run it on my desktop, but to no avail. I may try again someday, or just break down and buy a used system.
You could give Kgen Fusion a try JN:
there is a linux version available.
Lunar is for the Playstation. Thanks, though. Going through games, I’ve found Battle for Wesnoth. I’ll check that out.
An easy mistake to make:
The playstation version was the sequel.
Vanamonde: Crap, I’m terribly sorry. I meant the Silver Story Complete.
CP: Dragon’s Lair on the iPhone
The video looks rather spiffy on the iPhone screen, still hard as nails though even with the on screen directions.
CP: The Skeptic’s Guide to the Universe
I’m impressed with Wesnoth. It looks as though it has a Warlords aspect to it, so I may suck at it. But I’ll mess with it a bit.
Fall of Imiryn looks like a pretty straight-forward FF-ish RPG.
Stone Soup looks quite old-school, but should be a good amount of fun, as dungeon-crawlers go.
Now all I need is time to play.
Well tonight I finally completed Dragon’s Lair, after a ‘mere’ 27 years.
Whatever will you do with the next 27 ?
Vanamonde: Way to go!

2 of 4 – Awesome.

4 of 4 – Sleep well.
From DigitalJournal.com :
I guess BlabberMouth is an arm of RoadRunner, so maybe they are a trustworthy source? They say that they reached out to Dio’s manager and she said:
So, as of this morning, he’s still with us. He has a twitter account http://twitter.com/OfficialRJDio so that may be the place to stay up to date.
This has been the Nomad Scry News Network, your source for stuff since a while ago!

Missed this one at the time:
The Nebula Awards have been posted, though it’s easier to find the results on Tor.com than on the actual Nebula Awards website. None of the big publishers had a win.
Something something something about Google collecting WiFi info in the EU, something something about happening before so what’s the big deal.
IMO, because it is the EU, it just means that this is the first time they’ve become aware of it. I gotta respect the way that they are willing to ignore what has gone before. Just because it went unsung then doesn’t mean that now that they are aware of it they won’t scream bloody blue frogs. Sure, they probably only found out because Google is big enough for people to spend all of their time watching, but that doesn’t mean the EU was “allowing” it before.
It’ll be interesting to see if the EU continues to find that publicly available information is collectible or if they’ll decided that it isn’t.
And before I forget again, thank you all for taking the time to poke at that safety wall guy. I appreciate it.

I doubt I’ll get caught up on comments as I’ve been out of pocket for the last couple of days. A long time friend and Godfather (and, naturally, he’s Italian) of my daughter got married this weekend. He was long overdue for finding someone. Had a great time and got to see some friends from college that I hadn’t seen in real life in many years.
Hope Deadpan had been going well.
Nomad Scry: So, two points. One, I am an American. That means, the globe has two countries. One is America. The other is the country of the Others. I have completely fallen all over myself to show that the U.S. is the only country I care about or have any knowledge of. I apologize to the rest of the globe, I have become the arrogant American I should strive to not be.
Second: Good point. I have long applauded the E.U. for having the balls that the U.S. has long either tucked or completely torn off. Again, I was being completely U.S.-centric.
My only excuse is the majority of data I get is U.S.-centric or -specific, but that’s not enough.
That out of the way, isn’t Google claiming it accidentally gathered the info kind of like claiming that the Hubble telescope is accidentally gathering deep-space info?
Null – I love you.
(Also, the way I read it, Google isn’t claiming to have accidentally gathered the info. They are saying, “Uh… yeah, it’s available in the air and we just wrote down what is there. No biggie.”)
Ed: That’s great. The daughter of one of my dad’s coworkers got married today. My parents went and took pictures, but I didn’t go because I had to go to my Saturday class.
I did have an eventful weekend, though. This weekend was our town’s Relay for Life at the local high school, and I had the privilege of being on the school staff team. I think I got about 45 minutes of sleep the whole night. (Some people can fall asleep when there’s noise around them, but I need absolute quiet.) Today I went to church, came home, and slept all afternoon. Then we went out to dinner with a friend.
Uhm. I meant… temples.

oooh that reminds me of a story.
Maybe I’ll call the voicemail on my way home and tell my story.
it’s not technically a dumbass memory but it’s a cute memory or … a teenage 80’s memory?
Maybe if I call it in, :jack: can put 80’s music behind it…
[/done catching up]
So, who wants to know what’s been going on with me?
Well – I wish I’d gone to LepreCon! Sounds like I missed something amazing there!
I am waiting for some more bloodwork results from my doctor, but he made some changes for me that I requested and I think I’m feeling better so that’s an upside.
My company had its yearly picnic this weekend and I was able to take my kids and it was super fun! They climbed rockwalls and jumped in bouncy houses and ate snowcones and cotton candy… all around good time.
I’ve been reading a book called Fidelity Files (http://www.jessicabrody.com/fidelityfiles.html) and I’m enjoying it. Mostly I’m just enjoying reading. My love of WoW is on the backburner. I’d really just rather be reading these days. I go through phases of wanting to read and when I do, I tend to disappear into my books. Reading helps me relax and re-center and I’ve been very scattered and unsettled of late.
OK this is turning into a blog post! Ugh.. Sorry…
Speaking of blogs – I’m rebuilding mine. I’m sure you are all thrilled! :tongue:
RIP Ronnie James Dio. My cassette of “The Last in Line” is still in my old room at my mom’s house in NJ. If only I could get ahold of that and my old one-speaker Emerson radio. . . .
Cool if rather silly:
The sun’s up. I guess that’s a start.
Glad to see Cj is doing better. Hows the job front going babe?
In my medical news, I think I’m having a reaction to some of my meds. It took me almost an hour last night to convince hubby I didn’t need to be taken to the emergency room.
When he left today he told me to basically stay off my feet. Like that’s really going to happen. Doesn’t he realize it’s Monday, my busiest day of the week?
On the up side, I got a new monitor on the weekend. My computer is now fully 3D. I don’t think I’ll ever play a game any other way. It’s awesome.
I was playing Assassin’s Creed 2, hubby put Unreal Tournament 3 on, and we spent most of the weekend shuffling for play time (on MY computer).
Tomorrow will be movie day for sure. I’ve cleared my calendar.
Where is everybody? :cwy:

Ohhh, ditto leads an exciting Monday :biggrin:

Then I need to send a GPS watch in for warranty service and re-caulk the shower. Exciting I know.
Joy, I know. 😉
Okay, I’m obviously living in the past, 3d monitor?

Fletcher is no longer in school – officially summer break, so no more mornings to myself, but looking forward to Sarah being out of school too so that I can sleep in a little later! Right now I’m off to take her to school!
Still living in the past, I preordered an iPad, just a wifi one.
You need a special 120hz monitor to handle the 3d graphics (see system requirements)
The vision kit also came with Avatar the game. Not something I was really interested in, but I can see the tie in.
Nomad Scry: Thanks! Glad I don’t piss off everyone.
I read a blurb somewhere that claimed Google said that the gathering was inadvertent. But I obviously am not paying much attention to it all, and therefore should probably shut the hell up.

On top of the head-spinning weekend, I’m still having trouble processing a world without Ronnie James Dio.

The first 10 episodes or so of Murder at Avadon Hill are pretty dry writing, but the story picks up after that. Overall, I’m glad I didn’t give up on it, but the beginning could really stand a rewrite.

Van, I don’t think that article said anything new. Here, at least, the news is always harping on healthy foods.
Our yard is supposed to be completely redone starting some time this week. I have (had?) an apple tree in my front yard. We’ve had a number of people actually quite upset with the idea this tree would be gone. To the point, a friend of ours came on the weekend and took it for their yard. As it was coming out, the neighbours came by. When I took them all the trees and bushes were coming out, they were rather upset. I don’t understand, I always thought it was a bit of an eyesore.
Did take a whole bunch of “before” pics on the weekend, though. The work should be done by the first week of June.
If you want to prepare yourselves, this is the movie we’ll be watching this afternoon
You can’t go wrong with Nazi Zombies at a ski lodge. 😆
Watched Daybreakers last night. As far as vampire movies go, it was above average. There were a few things that made you go hmmm (like a hummer that had a bridge strut go through the windshield, then the vehicle exploded), and some parts that made you think there was a story thread that might have been cut, but over all, not too bad.
Today is the day our recycling is picked up. It’s always interesting watching the people come by and rummage through all the bins looking for bottles. I’m afraid this guy is going to be out of luck. Someone beat him to it, coming by a couple of hours earlier.
Bunny, I’m totally interested in your before/after pics. Landscaping/gardening is my fave.
I’m not really much of a yard person, EssBee, that’s why I hire people to do it for me. :cheerful:
Well :pan: I’m off for a bit. Catch you after lunch for the matinee.
Even better! Pictures of what pros do!
Once it’s done, I’ll e-mail you a couple of before/during/after pics.
I have an earache and feel like poo.
One more thing before I go. These are the guys doing the work in our yard, EssBee. you can have some idea of what they’re like.

Wow, you guys, I just got unfriended on FB by someone I was very close to at one point.
Just a few weeks ago, I contemplated unfriending someone, and I am now really glad I didn’t do it. It’s cruel, petty, and feels pretty awful.
Cj, NS: Even I am a little grossed out by that shirt, and bugs don’t normally bother me.
TEB: During the summers when I was 9 and 10 years old, I was one of those people looking through the recycling bins when they were out. I wasn’t looking for bottles, though, just the points that Pepsi was putting on their packaging that you could redeem for prizes. I got a beach towel and a cool folding chair out of the deal. 🙂
Please remember Steve Should Not Eat It
OK, so I typed a bad email address… FeH!
More hugs for EssBee. 🙂
Good Morning, :pan:
There will likely be a released comment a little later about “Steve”.
In the meantime, Does it feel weird yet?
I haven’t baked in a while so I decided to make cookies. That’s going to make hubby both happy and upset with me.
Happy because, well, I made cookies. Upset, because I’m not suppose to be on my feet (see medication reaction above). While I don’t really follow that rule, there’s not usually any direct evidence of such willful disregard for the rules 😉
Not sure if i did it earlier so here’s a hug for EssBee also.

Woot! For Scry’s witty comment :w00t:
Ok, I’m gone for a little while again.
The Hartford Whalers didn’t really get reincarnated, did they? I’m a terrible New Englander to not know the answer to that, I guess.
Thanks, Amy. Thus far, I’m enjoying it.
As Ed from Texas touched on, it seems a bit dry and formulaic a bit now, but it’s overall well-written. It seems to be a story that picks up steam as it goes.

My bloodwork results came back today and… all normal.
So what do I do now?
Just plod on I suppose.
I have no answers.
Also, no criticizing the spelling or grammar. Typing as I watch so it’s hard to be quick and accurate.
Cj, I’m in a similar boat. My “doctor” treated a couple of symtoms and ignored some test results. I’m at a point though where I can live with it so I figure I’ll also just plod along until I collapse again.
Pressing play now…

This is subtitled. Now have to watch, read and type.
“Hanna says she’s very single”
What does that mean? How is very single different from single
“Any chance of a rear entry?”
C: Smoke break
The girls and guys are in separate vehicles. The better to talk about eachother
Cell phones don’t work… Now they’r asking for trouble.
Counting off movies that start with a gourp of friends who are alone in a off the track cabin with no telephone availability.
Why hasn’t Sara arrived? She was suppose to be there before them.
That’s not how you make a fire!
Innertubing from a snowmobile
I never have this much fun in the winter
Sufficating her with a pillow is foreplay
OMG they have to use an outhouse. I would neer survive.
Are you sure it wasn’t a moose?
I’m still stuck at “rear entry”, Bunny.
Enter scary older man, about to tell them stories
Hey Bunny, just logged on, I’ll have to leave to do a bank run in 10, but should be back 15 after that. Please continue.
The coffee’s terrible
The rear entry is definately a test of one’s parking skills.
Oop, got a work e-mail. Time to pause. Back in five
While I’m taking a break you can all discuss why this scary older man suddenly shows up at the door of the cabin and asks for coffee.
Now where was I? Oh yes, strange man…
The terrain is the least of your worries…
Stories of people being tortured in the area during the second world war.
The people revolted.
Calling upon the devil to help escape to the mountains.
I can’t stand people who use their coffe to put out their cigarettes. It’s just a quirk I have.
What will you do if your limbs are torn off?
I sleep nakid, but I keep my toque onmy head so I don’t get cold?
was it a dream?
Ok, scary old man sleeps in a tent in the woods. Really?
If you sleep alone in a tent in the woods, you know you’re not long for this world. Scary old man is the first (second?) to die.
Time to look for Sara. Let’s take the snomobile and leave the others without transportation. The vehicle is an hour of so away.
A slice of bread with a slice of cheese on it makes a good lunch
Didn’t find Sara but found scary man’s tent
Hey, one of the headlights is out on the snowmobile. Not relevant to the movie, just making an observation
Hey, what’s this?
Who does all this gold belong to? Could it be… zombies?
Ow, that look liked it hurt
“I’m going for a shit”
“Name it after me”
really? It’s all yucky in there. I wouldn’t do that.
CP: Blood Gulch Blues — Trocadero
“You know what, you could bitch about anything, couldn’t you? We’re gonna get a tank, and you’re worried about chicks. What chicks are we gonna pick up, man?! Frig! And secondly, how’re we gonna pick up chicks in a car that looks like that?”
Coin dropped. Ucky hand picks it up
Another one bites the dust
I thought I heard something…
A shotgun above the door. All right!
Wait, I didn’t see any bullets. Is it loaded?
Found Sara’s backpack but no Sara or Chris
That would freak me out too
Check deposited, lunch being eaten.
Here come the zombies
“Don’t worry, they cant get in”
FAmous last words
CP: Debbie Gibson is Pregnant With My Two Headed Love Child — Mojo Nixon
Shotgun did have bullets by the way.
There goes another one.
We have the guy on the snowmobile looking for sara
Lets stay here and lit the problem fix itself.
Wow, they’re covered in blood
opening day at my “More” local baseball team class A:
this inspired a choice for a bobble head they they might give away:
thats the one I voted for
Oh look, I made a torch
An SS flag. Could this be the daytime home of the zombies?
Found Sara, or her head anyway
Or Jesse James’ girlfriend?
Fighting the Nazi Zombie
Here comes another one.
Aww she has little pink hearts on her touque
*places nipple goal on the T*
REally girls, grab some snow and wash your faces. That blood is not becoming.
The best way to kill a Nazi zombi is a dagger through the eye.
Nazi zombi guts makes a good rope
Yeah, that’s never a good thing to wake up to.
Wait a minute, where did the explosive come from
I never understood why zombie’s ooze black goo. Where does it come from?
The birds! The Birds!
Did you know zimbies could climb trees?
I completely lost track of the body count. I think there’s only a few of them left.
Good shot! Now the cabin’s on fire.
A chainsaw. All Right!
ewwww! are you insane?
Duct tape has all kinds of use
Which way is up? Time to spit.
Yeah, she dug her way out.
Music started, let the carnage begin.
Ok, that was cute
They’re making this look fun
Did we win?
Nope. More zombies still. More death
Wow. Strong zombies
Time to end this death scene. Here comes the general.
Limited ammo, go figure
Isn’t your grandfather half Jewish?
Ewww, he cut his own arm off with a chain saw
HOly crap that’s a lot of Nazi zombies!
The whole Nazi zombie army is after them
It’s actually quite tough to keep dyping Nazi Zombies
Boy they like to do the string out the guts effect
Hey! That’s my Nazi zombi treasure.
ON a side note, I don’t think my cat likes this movie. She keeps meowing at me
The landscape is quite pretty
He found the car. Could this ordeal finally be over
It’s over? Interesting.
All and all, not a bad movie. Still B movie, but maybe a B plus as far as zombie movies go. Still kind of silly though but I guess that’s what you’ve got to expect from these kind of movies.
Now must do some work…
I noticed that “Dead Snow” is available as a streamable movie via Netflix. Added to que.
I may have under (or over) stated some of the scenes, Rhett.
CP: Dreamline — Rush
Oh, I’m always up for a B zombie flick. I don’t think you oversold it. LOL
Ok Rhett. You can tell everybody how accurate my comments were.
Need to do some sewing but not sure I’m in the mood.
Might read instead
CR: The Multiplex Man – James P. Hogan
So Happy Town has been put on hiatus. Too bad, I was quite enjoying that show
Bunny, that show premiered at the worst time possible. I really wanted to see it but I just have to many shows on right now and some are going away.(lost, flashfoward)
Stoopid bloody TV networks, Happy Town was getting interesting.
Apparently it’s going to come back in the summer. We’ll see.
I blame reaper for it going on a break :cheerful:
hehe I’m killing things!
So was the goose stepping a result of them being nazis or riger mortise?
You know, I don’t remember them doing any goose stepping. They just walked stiffly, like zombies do.
CW: Latest Nurse Jackie
If I had three wishes, one would be for House to get cancelled and Hugh Laurie sent packing back to the UK to do a new comedy series with Stephen Fry.
This weeks lovey dovey episode made me want to puke.
I love Nurse Jackie, Van. She’s such a trainwreck. I have a soft spot for those.
Hugh Laurie’s american accent is better than mine. I don’t think he’ll be going across the pond soon. As an aside, I don’t find leg amputations with a power saw that lovey dovie. 😉
