My hoosiewhatsit is in a bunch right now.
Nubbins for everyone!
Darn you, Lejon!
I miss you all!
Will listen in the morning. Good night, Pan!
An earlyshow post always catches me on the hop.
I missed the weekly machine cleaning because I was too busy fighting with another pair of machines that refuse to bend to my will.
And I am exhausted now. Geez.
Has anyone heard of Leonard Sax?
I can’t put my finger on it, but he feels like so much BS off the bat.
How about that Deadpan Thursday?
Unshow is a go.
Well I had heard of the actor.
all the way to 11
My hubby was a bad boy. We were suppose to be able to sleep in this morning but, while I reset my alarm, somebody forgot to set their alarm to the new time. Not only that, when his alarm went off, he hit the wrong button and the alarm then went off five minutes later. That was that, the kitty decided it was time for me to wake up. Which wasn’t fair because hubby managed to roll over and get an extra hours sleep. Someone owes me a nap.
I get to file my income taxes today. My life is so exciting.
Time to listen to the show
*cuddles and hugs for Jack*
Devils sweep Penguins.
TEB congrats to Calgary last nite. While I’d never want them to beat the Avs, it does give me solace that Calgary is only a point behind Detroit now.
Only a point is still out of the playoffs, Lo Pan. We’ll see what the future brings.
Who knew being random was so interesting…
Random comment: My kitty has an itchy ear.
Another random comment: I miss seeing Cj all drippy wet, fresh from the shower.
Good luck sir. Big time. We’re behind you. In whatever way you need…
I echo Lo – self indulgent?
CP: yesterday’s Fresh Air – interview with Karl Rove
How did Fresh Air not burst into flames?
I couldn’t listen to the whole thing, Lo. It might’ve.
Yea! It’s back.
Finally listening to the unshow.
I’m confused. 🙂
We are self-indulgent once in 4 years and someone complains? Figures. 😉
I think we are allowed.
Much love and prayers for Jack.
Off to shower and dress for my hair appointment today.
Jack: I’ll be part of the thingy.
Yep. Also sending well wishes to Jack.
Thanks. Here we go.
Filming of “The Hobbit” will apparently begin in July.
Anyone see the video of the fake French torture game show?
CP: Overpowered by Funk — The Clash
Haven’t seen that, ditto – sounds . . . interesting?
Link got moderated.
I watched Lady Vengeance this morning and I agree with Jack. This was the best one. But then, it builds so beautifully on the themes and ideas from the prior two, that it isn’t possible for me to evaluate it on its own.
And I think calling it a trilogy is wrong. It is more a triptych instead.
The thing with the scissors and the tofu… yeah, that got me good.
Also, the ‘pan is back! huzzuh!
Nomad makes me swoon w/ the literary language.
1. Jack, my thoughts are with today.
2. Self-indulgent? Yup. It’s a community. I kind of think they go hand in hand.
3. I’m in for the thing. I’ll drop you an email.
5. Download speed at 14.9KB/sec is painful. I didn’t like waiting.
EssBee? Why would you accuse me of such a thing?
(Dammit, where’s the “I’m innocent” icon?)
CP: Joy — Lucinda Williams
Whered da “4” go, Nomad?
Lo”ng” Pan – I like 5, so I skipped the 4.
5 is indeed a nice round number.
Mad snow tomorrow, EssBee.
So, Lo, how long did the flower last anyhow?
I know! My garden will be delighted. I won’t be too happy if we have to drive in it.
CP: Off The Wagon — L7
Flower? Oh til I went to bed round 2 or so.
Me loves L7. Smell the Magic. bitches!
I think I brushed against L7 too soon. I’d just met Depeche Mode and Suzanne Vega; L7 was just too much.
I should look ’em up again now.
And cool on ya for keeping the flower on.
i think I did the opposite. L7 was early high school, just as I was truly forming opinions about what kind of music I truly loved. Suzanne and Depeche came much later for me.
I also love L7. I have an inside source (same one as for the Alice in Chains info from a few weeks back) who says Donita Sparks is truly whack, and somewhat toothless.
My favorite L7 lyrics go: “enough about me/lets talk about you/what do you think of me me me”
I found L7 during the “grunge” movement. I remember Pearl Jam saying how L7 and Sonic Youth were under appreciated. So true.
Inside Source = Wikipedia…… ;P
Wait what song is that?
My fav lyrics are “bite the wax, bite the wax tadpole. bite it. tadpole.”
The song is “I Need” from The Beauty Process album. Would you like to “borrow” it?
What’s your song?
Oh hell! I dunno if I have that album.
The song is “Bite the Wax Tadpole”. heh. From their debut. Feel free to…uh.. “borrow” that too.
Nice! I don’t have that one.
My friend “Wikipedia” was going to “loan” me hers, but she lives in WA and I’m tired of waiting!
Do you have Smell the Magic?
But Wikipedia is supposed to be the fastest way to get info!
I don’t! I only have the one album, and the Tank Girl soundtrack. My L7 collection is a bit lacking!
THATS IT???? Oddly the only one I dont have is the one you do have. I’ll borrow them to you next I see you. Classics.
Tank Girl fucking rulz.
cute: wakey wakey http://i.imgur.com/rhAjR.gif
OMG, I love Tank Girl. I have so many of the current series (Skid Markz, which is so gross) to read.
“Tank Girl fucking rulz.”
Amen. I love Jamie Hewlet’s work.
There was a comic?
Fuck you :ftb:
Damn link moderation again.
reaper thats disgusting cute
Lo, yep nearly puking cute
wait wait wait tank girl was more than a sound track…
I know Hewlett and Martin hated the movie, but I liked it okay. I’ve always had a thing for Lori Petty.
Me too EssBee! Specially in that film. Yum.
Finally watched the Tron Legacy trailer. Looks very interesting. I’m a bit surprised.
CP: Play On (feat. The Jungle Brothers) (Regrind `09) — Rae & Christian
ditto: I saw the trailer this weekend and I have to agree, interesting. I can’t wait to see it.
CP: Sell Out — Reel Big Fish
reaper: Did you get the impression that Flynn is now the villain?
ditto: I was a little to engrossed and excited to see a new Tron story to pay that much attention. I was mostly watching saying “oooo pretty” because I saw it before watching Alice in Wonderland in 3D IMax. That was the first movie I have seen in the theator since LotR
Jack: Good Luck!
LoPan: I have my daughter listening to L7 🙂
Jack: I’m in on the 62 lines thingy!
TEB: Drippy wet from the shower?
DeadPan: Sorry I missed all the events. I’m confident with that many random people together in one place, it was a hot. I’ll plan harder next year to show up 🙂
Ditto: Both trailers for Tron Legacy look AWESOME!!1!!11 I can’t wait to see that one!
Mmmmmmm… CJ Drippy wet from the shower…..
CP: And Darling — Tegan & Sara
Had my excitement for today. Took a girlfriend to lunch. When we got back a condo unit by her office was up in flames (that’s an understatement) so all the main roads were closed. Had to find a back route to Edge to get her to work. I did offer to bring her home with me and we could have coffee all day but she said she had work to do. Spoil sport.
Here it is!
News: no news. We’re postponed. The heart attack continues.
Is that a friend from Edge Publishing, Bunny?
Yup. Edge is about a 5 minute drive from my house. We go for lunch on a regular basis.
Fuck, I left out Randall.
Jack: That sucks.
Just listened to the unshow, good luck Jack.
My spine of glass comment was just me feeling sorry for myself, still in a lot of pain with my back, the painkillers prescribed by the Doc are next to useless and I’m relying on sponging stronger painkillers from a relative to get some relief at night.
I was saddened after listening to Slice a couple weeks ago and hearing how skewered The Crazies is getting via critics. Image my surprise that, after over 130 reviews, its still at 72% fresh on Tomatoes. Thats excellent, and now I wanna see it again.
Repo Men on the other hand….yeesh. That saddens me how basted its getting.
I figured one of these two films would be a dumb slasher movie. Never thought itd be Repo.
Got your back’s back, Van.
Note to self – refresh page before posting.
That sucks big time Jack.
reaper: How dare you unleash that level of cuteness on this board! Why, it does a Hadoken of cuddles!
ditto/reaper: Agreed. It wasn’t enough to assuage my fears, but does look like it may actually be bad-ass.
More hugs and cuddles for Jack
A back rub for Vanamonde
Now to play the new Dragon Age expansion. I couldn’t wait.
JN, I don’t think i could have put it better myself…
No really, I would have come up with the “Hadoken of cuddles”.
That is awesome!
Ouch Jack very Ouch
I have to remember to read further up in the comments before I post.
To be honest, I don’t think I can watch Repo Men without thinking of Monty Python: “We’re here for your liver.” I think that will just ruin the movie for me. 🙂
Oh ditto, that would make it so much better.
No worries, everyone. I appreciate the thoughts.
I do hope your back feels better, Van. Nothing funny about that. I hear the Canadian healthcare system has a method of replacing your entire skeletal structure with Adamantium – might be worth a look.
You may want to load up on the Echinacea before submitting yourself for treatment.

CP: Born Under Punches — Talking Heads
I think they are trying to tell me something.
What’s that smell?
R.I.P. Alex Chilton
“Compared to the Japanese, we are incompetent. In Japan, every criminal gets caught. For major crimes, convictions run ninety-nine percent. So any criminal in Japan knows from the outset he is going to get caught. But here, the conviction rate is more like seventeen percent. Not even one in five. So a criminal in the States knows he probably isn’t going to get caught – and if he’s caught, he won’t be convicted, thanks to all his legal safeguards.”
Michael Crichton, Rising Sun
I was under the impression, that the reason the Japanese capture rate was so high was because there was very little crime compared to the US or UK.
What about their pesky ninja infestation?
CP: No Epiphany — Fucked Up
I believe the low Japanese crime rate has something to do with Puffy Puffy Amiyumi.
Vanamonde: Hope things improve for you. Back injuries are terrible.
A: I send you good luck through the Ether. I hope there will be reason to have another party soon.
B: I don’t get the self-indulgent part. As Nomad Scry said, we’re a community. I guess it’s self-indulgent to have connections through an online community? Or perhaps the party is self-indulgent? Aren’t parties by definition self-indulgent? Damn, I had rum last night. I indulged my ass with that spicy nectar! Tonight, I will not make the Vitameatavegemin food-substitute that we normally eat. I’m going to be self-indulgent by seasoning my chicken. My summation is that this most likely comes from some miserable ass that needs to re-learn that one should listen twice as much as they speak.
3: I’m up for the thing. I believe you have my address. If not, I’ll re-send.
Shes a real koch.
The Rock Band Network is up and JoCo has added some songs!
CP: I Gotta Get Drunk — Willie Nelson
This deal…worse all the time
Upper torso? What do we call her camel toe? Kroch?
Promising. OH SO PROMISING
Lo Pan: Very interesting. Could be Mystery Men done right?
And, caught up. First time since last night.
I have nothing to say, because, I’m four shows behind.
I blame the DragonCon Podcast.
Rhett’s wit FTW!
So well-endowed women are called Koch?
This is so not blending with my mental image of former New York Mayor Ed Koch.
Null – I actually really enjoyed Mystery Men, however I never read the comic. That being said I think youre right on that point.
I’m Jim Koch, brewer of Sam Adams….
I dunno about that, but I was really terrible at Morse code.
Jack: Hey! No NSWF tag?
ARG! My eyes!
That was the unswoon.
Is that how you get your Kochies, Jack?
Now apply Rhett’s comment to that picture.
“What about their pesky ninja infestation?”
Ed Koch is a ninja! dear god.
Jack: Can I borrow your voice for a Billy Intro? more to come later 🙂 I’m having funny thoughts. And no, it won’t relate to Ninja Kochs.
Sure thing, JR, I’d be glad to. Thanks! Just send me the lines.
That cat gif was ungodly cute. I won’t need ice cream for a few days.
Sorry about the continued heart attack, Mr. Jack. I had hoped for good news when I woke.
Thanks, Nomad. And yes, that cat gif is a cute overdose.
Be it known that today, March 18 2009, Lo Pan will actually defend Avatar.
CW: Dr. Who – Blink
“It’s my timey-wimey detector. It goes ‘ding’ when there’s stuff.”
Wow, LoPan. That is amazing.
Aint it shite?
A quote from the comments about the clueless preacher:
I can not tell my arse from me elbow when it comes to adverbs and adjectives, but this dude makes me feel like a grammar nazi. What the heck are they even trying to say here? BAH!
(i.e. Internet comments make Hulk mad.)
“People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it’s more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey… stuff.”
i could understand it why couldnt you understand it nomad scry what person was saying was totally clear it made perfect sense james cameron movies vanilla ice cream whats grammar the internets are the end of grammar the next generations are going to communicate in some vague destructured language
😉 I hate you. 😛
BTW, I hope everyone else has a good Friday. Mine has been fantastic…ly bad. Grrr.
EssBee, Such Language!
we have a change of $n0w tonight also.
I just can’t bring myself to write that word.
RE: Dr. Who “Blink” – if that is the one I’m thinking of, that was cause for some shivers from pure creepiness.
And a find Friday morning to all.
I don’t know why, but we watched this last night:
Let me just say, SyFy would have rejected this as too low quality to run as a Saturday night flick.
Not all ninjas are created equal. Though I find it somewhat eery that you guys are talking about Ninja Koch at the same time I’m watching a movie with ninjas fighting in New York.
CW: Nurse Jacke S2E1
The long list for the BSFA 2010 awards:
It’s Persian new year today so make sure you go out and hug a long hair kitty. 🙂
I came home from Martial Arts last night and told my hubby I’m going to have a bruise on my ankle. He didn’t even roll his eyes this time. He simply groaned and changed the subject.
It hurts to walk
It snowed last night. I don’t remember approving that.
TEB: When I went to that Kung Fu class, my feet got some pretty good abrasions, top and bottom. Lady J asked what was on my feet. “Eh, just blood.”. It’s annoying when you first start up again.
I think I’m going to go old fashioned when I make cookies today. You can’t go wrong with chocolate chip & pecan cookies.
I hate to tell you this, JN, but it’s annoying any time, not just when you first start out.
Hows the snow up north, EssBee?
Van, we LOVE Nurse Jackie. I think it’s a wonderful show.
TEB: You don’t find your feet toughen up pretty quickly? I can admit ankle injuries are annoying at any time. Actually, my knee still acts up from time to time. Running seems to help.
The snow is HEAVY. I can’t even see the furniture whorehouse from my window today. The roads are just wet, though. Down South?
*snicker* “down south”…
Eh, depends what burb youre in oddly. Denver doesnt have much but Lakewood’s getting dumped on. Fuck it.
Unmerican Furniture Whorehouse…
Unmerican Furniture Whorehouse?
We’re supposed to hit somewhere in the 70s today.
hmmmmm :ftb: having issues with a comment about the Unmerican Furniture Whorehouse…. coincidence??
Oh Johnny….Johnny Johnny Johnny.
I have a medical issue JN, I bruise easier than the normal person so “toughen up” is relative.
Lo Pan: Do you think there’s snow in the “Arizona mountains”? *falls down laughing*
TEB: Ah, that sucks.
Oh Bunny, now you be nice 😀
Being raised Catholic in the Milwaukee dialysis I find especially funny
reaper <— never an alter boy
reaper: Pretty good policy.
“Oh Bunny, now you be nice”
That’s no fun :devil:
re: religion poster… and fondle it on a regular basis?
That’s awesome, reap.
Bunny, I really does need something more…
WTF? It will be 60 today and we have a winter storm watch for this weekend.
Enough is enough!
Reaper: awesome poster. 🙂
ditto: We got to 64 the last 2 day and tonight is forecast for $n0w.
I’m want for spring already!
ditto, prepare for heavy snow! Your neighbor won’t be cutting his grass Sunday!
Speaking of snow, time to shovel the walk then off to buy groceries.
Yeah, it looks like I have to cut my friggen grass soon too.
Quit being self-indulgent, ditto.
Isn’t that a song?
I self-indulge myself?
Sounds like fun to me! 🙂
CP: GG Stacked Modifiers
That self-indulgent thing still ticks me off.
Meh he meh.
ditto youre making a mess.
It’s my little self-indulgent mess. 😛
CP: Feel Like Rain — Buddy Guy
Time to get some more work done.
I tried to keep my self-indulgent rant down.
Yeah!!!! Damns it Null!
Oh Nomad, that terrible English post you…uh…posted, that guy has seriously never been right on the Topless Robot boards. More than once Ive wanted to virtually smack him upside the face. His posts actually hurt.
CP: Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh — Say Hi
ditto, at first I thought you were talking to Bunny on the phone what with the “Oh Oh Oh Oh . . . “
CP: The Hell Song — Sum 41
Yeah, I know it is generic punk, kinda like Blink 182, but I like the lyrics.
Still Waiting is also a good song.
CP: You Should Have Never Opened That Door — The Ramones
Starting to get hungry. What to do for lunch?
just got a laugh from this…
the setup: my old company just lost the other IT guy who is still helping a little. the new guy (1) changed the old guys (2) password to gain access to something 1 would have with his own log in.
so the email:
I had to reset your password to gain access to IT information and tools that are hosted on your workstation
Would you please send me your login password.
Reply from 2:
If you reset my password, I don’t have a clue what it’d be.
Reply from 1:
Password for login username (If you logged off your workstation and logged back in)
Reply from 2:
(copy, paste) If you reset my password, I don’t have a clue what it’d be.
I’m starting to feel bad for my old users.
Ditto: Me too, I’m thinking Chinese for lunch. I have an oil change appointment and it is near a good Chinese place.
For the non-FB peeps –
We’re heavy into deinventory here in the from Texas. While the kids are away, we’re splitting them up so they’ll each have their own rooms. Much stuff that we’ve niether seen nor used in many years is being put out to pasture. Expecting to make big drop offs to both Half Price Books and Goodwill later today.
I have just put two, count ’em TWO 3.5″ floppy drives into the trash bag. That was difficult.
/was an altar boy.
And so…….. The HD on my home computer seems to be kafuct.
Are we having fun yet?
THIS BUNNY IS NOT HAPPY!! Looks like someone was rooting through my recipe cupboard. I can’t find my favourite chocolate chip cookie recipe. If I have to settle, there will be hell to pay (or maybe no cookies – that’ll teach him)
Reaper: wow. That’s just… wow. I feel sorry for your users too.
Jack: that sucks. Do you have backups? I have two external HDs that I use for rotating backups. It isn’t expensive and is pretty easy to deal with.
Uh-oh. Angry bunny time.
Don’t mess with angry bunny.
Make that three 3.5″ floppy drives. Just unearthed another one.
I’m just waiting to spring the trap where the giant stone ball rolls out of the ceiling and chases me down the stairs.
Crisis averted. A certain hubby got lucky.
I’ve got a couple drawers filled with old computer gear I haven’t had the heart to get rid of. I remember throwing out my Pentium 200MMX board that I spent close to $400 on back in the day. That was hard.
Ed, Don’t lose your hat
Jack, that hurts I have resorted to a similar idea as ditto and than include some free sync software.
Ditto, nice bunny!
Bunny, or you could make some kind of cookies he doesn’t like
I think this bunny is destined not to make cookies. The fuse blew on her oven. Off to get a replacement. Then we’ll try the cookie thing again.
BTW, I don’t think the person was slamming us as self-indulgent. . . .
Oh that makes me happier.
Thats kafuct about your HD. Just went out just like that? Gotta be a retrieval option that wont cost kajillions
reaper: As I am not involved in your IT FUBAR, I can laugh. Nice.
Jack: That sucks.
ditto: That angry bunny picture is awesome!
Jack: Then I totally misunderstood the whole damn thing. I’m good at that.
I just read something that said the newer HDs don’t play well with XP, for those still runnning that OS.
Speed issue, possible 10% decrease.
The HeavenField, book two. Makes the story a bit more interesting, but I’m still on the fence. And it seems it may take quite a while for book three.
So I can never understand people who, even if you bring in a sample of what you’re looking for (i.e the old fuse) try to sell you the wrong thing.
After much argument, I got my new fuse, put it in the oven aaaannnnndddd…
nothing. Damn. That means I’ll have to call a repairman. No cookies for the hubby today :cwy:
Now what do I do with this cookie dough?
Jack: That’s too bad. I have a fairly large number of past Deadpan episodes on various devices in my house, as well as all of my own podcast stuff.
TEB: In the U.S., a popular school fundraiser program involves selling frozen cookie dough. Could the dough you made be frozen?
I blame Dell, I blame Vista, I blame Cthulhu.
God Damn It Jack!
That’s it, I’m not sending you any more e-mails. Ever, ever, ever!
I may even remove you from my e-mail list! (just kidding 😉 )
Ok, I have a bathroom to clean.
Jack: If you need help retrieving data from the hard drive, I might be able to help. I’ve done it before. It all depends on how bad the drive is. Of course, if you don’t care about what’s on there then problem solved. 🙂
Thanks, ditto. I have it here at the office, I am going to give it another shot in a few minutes.
Dang, it is a whiteout here. I may end up stuck here! Eeek!
BTW Jack, I gotCoethelia’s (sp?) bars and will mail them on Monday.
Thank you on her behalf, Ryah!
No worries about the emails. 🙂
Whiteout? Oh god…..
Something to keep in mind when you are photocopying documents:
JN, I’m nor involved anymore either since I don’t work there now so, I laugh too!!!
TEB, cookie dough is even better than cookies, have a nibble.
Jack: You need some good luck. You’ve had far too much of the other. I hope this works out.
TEB: Scrub Scrub Scrub!!! Then put that cookie dough into ice cream and go for it!
Paramount Pictures is remaking the 1987 film The Monster Squad. Rob Cohen, who produced the original, hopes to direct the remake. Cohen will produce with Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, and they’re meeting with writers.
Took a much needed Sushi break.
Right now, the dough is in the fridge. I figure it can stay there a few days. Hopefully, by then, my oven problems will be solved.
The noon news is boring. I think it’s time to play DA Awakening.
Wow. Paramoutn Pictures has got nards.
Sucks about the drive, Jack. Definitely a good idea to invest in some kind of backup solution. I’ve been bitten by the renegade drive problems a few times over the years.
Just got back from the book store. Got $53 for about eight banker boxes of random books that we were ready to let go of. And we got a lot of bookshelf and closet space back.

In the meantime:
Is the data recoverable?
That contest looks awesome! We need to flood them with deadpan entries! 🙂
JR: I AM SO WITH YOU ON THAT
Just got a very odd comment from a random religion fanatic on my blog. Huh.
EssBee: Did it have anything to do with “support your local wiccan league and save your soul from the free radicals induced by the Catholic Newmen”?
Jack: You can try looking into GetDataBack and DIY Data Recovery Tools. I’ve used both, though GetDataBack is much easier to use.
The penis is evil, but the gun is good!
sez my friend Friend.
Nothing like that, Lejon. More like, scripture/Jesus/pray/faith.
Speaking of data recover, I own a program that is pretty good. I’m not sure how it works with Vista, but if you want to give it a try Jack, you’re welcome to it.
EssBee: Darn, cause mine would have been a VERY odd comment …
OH MY GOD!!!
Yes… I just now realized this. It’s been a long week.

So – hard drive kafuct does not mean the end of the world.
It means the loss of many pics of my little ones, which is pretty damn horrible, plus the loss of a number of important docs and Deadpan archives and accessory files (bumpers, etc.).
I have, however, saved a number of docs in online storage locales and on my USB drive.

What’s the cause for the hatred, Rhett?
Indeed it is/was my laptop HD. If I hadn’t nailed it to the perch, it’d be pushing up the daisies.
Thanks for the data recovery recommendations, guys. Rhett, I might take you up on that program, Rhett, if available.
Wondering if FPM hates the UK, all FPM shows I subscribe too are still downloading slow.
The cause of the hatred is Zardoz. No really, that was a direct quote from Zardoz ripped straight for IMDB. LL

Cool Jack. I’ll see what I can do when I get home tonight. I may be able to Gmail it to you.
Han Zardoz, The wookie is good, but the ewok is evil.
R2? R2 Zardoz it IS you! It IS you!
It’s the question that drives us, Neo. It’s the question that brought you here. You know the question, just as I did.
What is the Zardoz?
And, with that, I’m out for the night!
and may God have Zardoz on your souls!
Let there be….Zardoz.
I’m to sexy for my diaper, to sexy for my diaper.
-Right Said Zed
Zardoz. Eat Fresh.
Sorry to hear about the computer, Jack. Shit.
Zardoz. I’m luvin’ it.
Alas poor Zardoz, I knew him well.
Zardoz! Apply directly to the forehead. Zardoz! Apply directly to the forehead. Zardoz! Apply directly to the forehead. Zardoz! Apply directly to the forehead. Zardoz! Apply directly to the forehead. Zardoz! Apply directly to the forehead. Zardoz! Apply directly to the forehead. Zardoz! Apply directly to the forehead. Zardoz! Apply directly to the forehead. Zardoz! Apply directly to the forehead.

NFSE (New Fav Song Evar): Sunshower – Ume
You gots me hooked, ditto.
Sorry bout the loss of pics and files, Jack. I know what that feels like.
Carry on. All you can do.
SOYLENT GREEN IS ZARDOZ!!!!!!
I’m too sexy for my nub.
All your Zardoz are belong to us.
Take off every Zardoz!
Jack: you can always try getting a new HD for the laptop and plugging the old HD into an external HD slot and see if you can reclaim the data. All may not be lost. if you’re still having difficulty, I live nearby many geeks who may be able to recover the data for you. Just let me know.
I am the mad Zardoz, what bombs at midnight!
I’m full of words. I should be writing.
Jack: If all else fails, you can ship the drive to me. I’ve recovered data before and I’d be happy to do it for you. So long as the head isn’t buried in the platter, all hope is not lost.
Lo Pan: Told you they were good. 🙂
I believed yet didnt believe. God they hurt theyre so good. You have both their albums?
No, just Sunshower.
Look for Urgent Sea. Much more raw and punk. Do love me some Sunshower tho. Whole lotta.
Now the Chris Cornell song is stuck in my head.
Off to buy a fucking HD. My wallet is becoming a hemophiliac.
Id give you a transfusion but my wallet is the equivalent of a crack ho
Just added Ume to my emusic list – I trust you two.
CW: Best Little Whorehouse in Texas
“and they shape up faster than goose shit slides through a tin horn”
“I’m gonna give you 30 seconds, you fancified fart”
“I’m gonna knock you so flat, you’re gonna have to roll down your socks to shit”
Ess Ill borrow you them along with L7 on Monday if we’re still on.
We’re definitely on, Lo!
Also, Texas has a whorehouse in it.
Thats what I hear. Directions please?
To the whorehouse I mean
And not Unmerican Burnwitcher Whorehouse off I-25 and 119. Heh.
“you know what burns my ass?”
“a flame about 3 feet high”
“It’ll be slicker’n cat shit on lanolium”
22 miles until you get to Heaven, Lo.
Nothing like a cheesecake to say you are sorry.
FRo2009 (Fav Record of 2009): Sunshower – Ume
Fine Ill quite singing their praises.
Whatcha watchin Ess? *runs*
If you’re an Aggie boy, that is.
22 miles? Yet only 5 minutes. HA!
ditty dotto ditto!!!!
Sly B and I just figured out that I saw this movie at age 11. Aha.
That makes you 24.
My sweet amusement
Why is it so hard to lose?
Why is it so hard to lose?
CD: Levelating the audio that we recorded onto my laptop last Saturday night. Currently at 70%.
No dice. Yousendit and Sendspace won’t take it (It’s 834MB. Seriously.) Guess I’ll have to split it up myself.
Just watched Alton Brown make this: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/praline-bacon-recipe/index.html
Saw Repomen tonight. I’ll have to do a mash up audio promo for it. I was laughing quite hard when Jude Law’s character was watching TV and I hear “We’ve come for your liver”. Pure awesomeness. Movie was different then I had expected. It’s one of those movies that’ll have you thinking a few hours after you see it. Worthy of discussion this movie is.
Jack: Wish I could do more than just cheer you on with your purchase. Good luck getting back up and running!
Has anyone used Carbonite or something like it for automated online backup services? I’ve been thinking it would be a better idea than my current setup (duplicating to the portable drive sitting next to my tower) and after Jack’s loss… well, I’m superstitious and would consider this my final warning.
I just listened to the Slice voice mail show that Jack was on. Time travel may not be possible, but I’m living in the past.
Ume – nice. Thanks!
Cats in boxes should be a mite concerned:
Jack: Sorry for your binary and monetary losses. At least you can upgrade your drive.
Nomad Scry: Nope. I heard something vaguely good about Amazon storage a while back. Perhaps you can post a query at OSTalk.org.
Vanamonde: That is shit-in-your-drawers amazing!
Good morning, DP! Today, I’m finishing The Gathering Storm and drinking coffee. It’s too cold and snowy to do anything else (well, we could clean).
Grooveshark only has Wake and Hurricane. Wake is one of the worst things I’ve ever submitted my ears to. Hurricane isn’t so bad. Sort of a like if Janis Joplin was lead singer in Ladytron.
I see a storm coming towards Houston. Which one of you Coloradans let it out of the state?
That was me, Ed!
Also, I finished The Gathering Storm! Good, good stuff!
To each his own, Null. Dont judge a body of work by two songs tho. Go look up the ne EP “Sunshower”. May be more your style.
We have cleaned and cleaned and cleaned this morning – wow, how do we accumulate so much STUFF? Now we’re headed to the Hard to Recycle joint in Boulder. We have plastic bags from two tons of pellets – it was a COLD winter! From there, we’re off to order lumber for new fascia and soffit and to pick a paint color.
I checked out Ume on emusic, and dig em. I’m not sure I heard Wake or Hurricane – my short-term memory is exceptionally SHORT.
Lo Pan: No, totally. That’s why I tried to emphasize the difference between the two tunes.
Wake and Hurricane come from their 2005 album Urgent Sea. Their earlier sound is much rougher and stripped down. The newer EP has a fuller, more produced sound. I noticed Grooveshark does have “The Conductor”. Give that a try. You might like that better. I love Pendulum.
I told you “The Gathering Storm” was going to be a good one.
Though, I still haven’t forgiven you for hooking me on Acacia. Now I’ve got two series that I’m having to wait for the next book on. 🙂
Only 2?! Don’t get me started. 😉
My bracket is fucked. I suppose thats what I get for filling out one even tho I didnt watch a single college BB game this year. Ah well.
Lo Pan: Take pride in your basketball suckage! I know I do. 🙂
I know right!!!!!!! I am a mad sports fan (which is odd for being such a dorque) but I really do hate me some basketball.
I just sent ditto a sexy ass pic message. Hehehehehehehehehehheehehehhheheheeheheheheheh *smooch*
ditto: Thanks for the link. Nice sound, and I’m sure Lady J would like it. I’ll have to follow up.
Gotta say, “Lady J” is a kick ass name for your better half, Null 🙂
Sorry, Ed. Now I feel like I want to read all the WOT books again – maybe via audiobook. I’ve read these effing books 3 times already. I really like what is happening with the Aes Sedai and liked Rand’s big finish in the latest book.
I have three series for which I’m waiting for books: Fire and Ice, WOT, and Acacia! At least we know with Acacia that #3 will be the last . . .
Man, Boulder sux.
I haven’t even looked at the bb tournament this year. I played some basketball once upon a time. I don’t know why I’m not more into it.
Chop Chop Ninja, a rather nice platformer for the iPhone/ipod Touch is free for the day:
Will any other deadpanites be making it out to the So Cal Meetup tomorrow? I see Amy is a maybe (I hope you’ll make it. Looking forward to meeting you). If you need the address, let me know via email, facebook, DM in twitter, etc.
Sorry JM. I’m all tapped out right now.
I made a vow to myself that I wasn’t going to reread the WOT until the last book was done. I’ve got plenty to read/listen to to keep me busy, but now that I can be reasonably sure that the series will be finished (and finished well, if Sanderson’s first book is any indication) that I am looking forward to hitting it from the beginning.
There are a few other series that I follow, though with some of them (like Janny Wurts), I’m not even sure why anymore. Others, like the Sword of Truth, are, as far as I know, complete. I’m just working my way through them.
I have food and alcahol in my tummy. Always a good combination.
Got my stove fixed today. $500 did not make for a very happy bunny :angry:
On the up side, gonna kill me some trolls in about half an hour. That does make for a happy bunny 🙂
We haven’t played in a while. Good to be getting back into it.
Ditto: If you’re in LA and you show up, I’ll buy lunch 🙂
Bunny: Glad to know you’re still on the happy side 🙂
Well, Skullmad escaped. We’re chasing him into the fey wilds…
Jack, Rhettro, and any other guitarists here: Tonight, I went to Country at the Merc (a live music show), and the lead guitarist had forgotten his slide bar. He used a cell phone. It worked perfectly well. I thought you would be amused, and perhaps file this fact away for future reference.
Night, Pan. :happy:
Good Sunday Morning, DP!
We watched Whiteout with Kate Beckinsale last night. OMG, what a stinker. Writing = awful; acting = embarrassing; plot = sophomoric. But we watched the whole thing. It starts w/ Kate in the shower and goes straight downhill from there for about 1.5 hours.
No I’m catching up on my comic subscriptions. I’ve set them aside since I started the Jordan book, and they’ve really piled up!
Gratuitous shower scene or stupid PG-13 shower scene?
Id give her a “whiteout”…..
PG-13 shower scene, but R-rated bend-over just before the shower scene. I’d say, watch the first 15 minutes.
Lo Pan: Thanks, I’m glad you appreciate it.
wow. a quiet night at the deadpan. I hope all is well with the pan.
ah ha! The browser didn’t load last nights comments.
… aaand I’m back.
Been on the road for a week. Then trying to do the post trip laundry and catch up.
“…nd goes straight downhill from there …”
So it’s a ski movie ?
If you are willing to take the time and can spare a tab in your browser, then you can listen to Ume’s 2nd album off of their website.
I had something else I wanted to say, perhaps in response to Lo Pan, but EssBee’s shower scene completely drove all thoughts from my mind.
“…EssBee’s shower scene completely drove…”
Completely drove …heheheheh
Looking through news updates and see that the HCR will be voted on today.
If it does indeed pass, I find myself wondering if by tomorrow evening the country will have the same ” non-event, let down” that the country felt after Y2K came and went with barely a whimper.
I suspect that the followers of the radical right will be standing around feeling cheated because the gates of hell did NOT open up and all our major cities are NOT in flames with chaos and rioting in the streets.
… and those who have been desperately needing some relief from healthcare costs will suffer the letdown of realizing that they won’t see anything change for months (at best).
There has just been so much build up about this … both fear and hope – without this issue to dominate the news, what will the public use to fill the void?
Will the College Basketball Tourny be enough … or do you think we will need another major celebrate scandal?
celebrate = celebrity
Missed ya, JOe!
Shower scenes will do that, Nomad. Unless its a shower scene that includes Steve Buschemi. No one wants that.
J0e, if the US needs another celeb scandal, I will gladly volunteer to be the “other guy” of Kate Beckensale. And how.
Sam Adams makes an excellent Ale.
I didn’t know who Ms. Beckensale was … so I googled her.
Now I preoccupied with the thought of googling her.
I was a late bloomer to Kate’s glory as the first time I saw her was in Underworld. Nufff said.
ditto: Heres a demo version of Pendulum.
Lo Pan was a late bloomer.. that explains so much about him
if you need the scandal to be even more amazing I will gladly volunteer to be Kate Beckinsales other woman. Hubba Hubba.
I’m suffering from SXSW envy
Any chance I can come between you two?
… and I don’t mean “in order to break you two apart” :devil:
Hugh sez: j0e, I’ve got first dibs to cum between them
k pan we are gonna try something out we haven’t done in a while. We might be kinda rusty but we hope it is like riding a bike or sex and we’ll be old pros as before………

I think I need a cigarette now … and I don’t even smoke!
Well done, Hotties!
CW: District 9 (2nd time for me – 1st time for Sly)
CW: My finances plummet…….
Wow, was that as good for the rest of you as it was for me? Ye olde play-by-play action of TSH certainly must rank as a favorite deadpan memory.
Well done, and yes, you guys haven’t lost a thing.
I only have one glass… with alot of empty bottles
And we had a TSH sighting!!!
Heres the “other” college tournament going on now. The one I care about… and the rest of the country could care less about
Holy cow, a play-by-play! Welcome back (whether it’s only for a brief visit or not), TSH!!!
I think almost all the Deadpan episodes ever have been good. 🙂
I had a lot of fun at the Deadpan Meetup! 🙂 Yes, of course you’re invited! 🙂
Lo Pan … thanks for the link!
Believe it or not, I have an mild interest in one of those teams. :ninja:
Awwww, well thanks peeps 🙂 it was fun to play by play again. Hugh has been having a bit of an off day and needed the laugh.
Lo Pan, I don’t think its so much as a tournament no one cares about, its more about the schools and the kids than the actual sport. Like March Madness isn’t for the love of basketball. Its for the love of peoples schools. Every NCAA tournament in every sport is exciting, for that school and those kids. Honestly 7 times out of 10 people are more into hockey than basketball it seems.
Hugh was saying they should start doing highschool tournaments because they just cancelled all sports programs for all Freshman and Sophmores in Chicago Public Schools. They already cancelled art and music, now they are taking away their sports. It sucks. If they are not good enough to play in varsity, they can’t play at all. March Madness for all its annoyance keeps sports programs going in schools.
Course on the flip side the whole ignoring a kids education if he is a great athlete is pretty lame too 🙂
nighty night pan
@ Amy Bowen — I can totally imagine playing slide with a cell phone, though it wouldn’t work real well with mine. I think I could do it with my wife’s.
My first slide was a piece of copper pipe that I found in my backyard when I was about 17. It fit my ring finger perfectly, so I polished it up and used it for years. My son still uses it today. I finally upgraded to a glass slide because I got tired of my finger turning green :wassat:
I’ve also attempted to play slide with a screwdriver, a Sharpie, a Swiss Army knife, and a Colt .45 revolver. Thankfully I managed that last one without killing anyone or scratching the barrel (which probably would have led to my own death at the hands of my father). And I sounded equally bad with all of them :sick:
Good morning, DP!
Monday comes fast . . .
Hubby sick, sick sick! :sick: But is he going to take a day off work? Noooooo. So I’m listening to him groan as I type while he gets ready to go. Silly hubby :kissing:
*nods @ EssBee*
…a little too fast.
CW: Latest Desperate Housewives
John Barrowman as a bad guy….ooooooh Torchwood fans may be disappointed.
Van, I stopped watching Desperate Housewives about 3 months ago. I just couldn’t take it anymore.
I caught a few episodes but it quickly became so bad that I found I was just fast forwarding through large portions of it … then I hit one about a tornado that was just soooo bad/silly that I took the show off my TiVo list.
I think hubby and I watched one or two episodes when it came out but dropped it pretty quick.
Just got off the phone with the founder of our local SF convention. He spent close to an hour bitching at me over the new guest list (all media, no authors). He hasn’t been involved for several years, but still gets very upset if things do not follow how he thinks they should be. I shrug and say, if we wanted to put in our opinion we should still be involved, otherwise it’s no longer our call. Cliff says he agrees, but I still get the hour long phone call rants. Silly man. :biggrin:
Here is the current guest list if anybody cares: http://www.con-version.org/Announcements.html
Quiet day on the boards today. A case of the Mondays?
My kitty-cat hasn’t slept yet this morning. I’m trying to decide if I should be worried. (anyone with a cat understands this statement)
On the other side, why are kitties so cute looking when they wash their face?
CP: Amazing — Blackkoldmadina
Wake up, Bunny!
No. If I wake up, I have to take out the garbage :wassat:
Now going to change the kitty litter and take out the garbage 😉
Among other things, I pulled a load of laundry from the dryer. My kitty is finally curled up on the warm, fresh from the dryer, towels. I’m almost jealous.
It looks like we’re going to get a bit of weather. My kitty’s arthritic and I’m sure she’s feeling it today. :pouty:
CP: Enhanced Evil conf call hell
Hey Pan. Good morn-oh fuck it.
I second that Jack. fuck it!
Hang in there baby!
(I’m sure there is a jpg somewhere with a kitten hanging by it’s paws to 2nd me on that.)
CIMM: the seen from the Jerk (I think) where one guy says “Damn IT (guys name)” other guy says “I Damn thee”…
I most likely have that all wrong but that is how it is in my head.
justa J0e, and there I go again missing an opportunity to insert the perfect pic.
I say again…
Eh, it’s not so bad – just Monday. Thx though. Does somebody have a case of the Mondays?
In more distressing news, it appears that Isla Fisher married Borat.
Laundry. Why does it have to be the folding?
… No man. Shit no. I believe you’d get you ass kicked for saying something like that.
I like the tumbling.
Thank you, reaper 😉
It does give me joy to see a play-by-play too. In fact, these comments from the past 48 are chock full of the ingredients of joy.
These include –
Water , Sodium Lauryl Sulfate , Sodium Pareth-23 , C12-14-16 Dimethyl Amine Oxide , SD Alcohol 40-B , Undeceth-9 , PPG-26 , Sodium Chloride , Cyclohexanediamine , Polyacetate , Fragrance , FD&C Yellow #5 , D&C Red No. 33
… er, no wait. Sorry.
That’s the ingredients for Lemon Fresh Joy.
Still trying to figure out how to make the other.
It’s in French, but just look at the date:
Cats have been messing with keyboards longer than you may think.
A definite monday today. Internet was down at work.
CP: Secret Touch — Rush
justa J0e. i think you might want to start by removing the Yellow #5 but adding a kitten and maybe some movie quotes. that is at least a start.
CP: Keith and the Girl – 1146:Fat and The Whore
who here is surprised:
have & love:
reaper, that thing really makes a significant difference?
This guy suffered for his art:
Van: Yeah, that was a cool article.
Jack, yes, very much. I was surprised. The best example is the last glass or two of wine in a bottle is often undrinkable next day. With that thing it is nearly as good as the day before.
Very sweet robot love story by Spike Jonze:
Some great music too.
Excellent links, you guys. I’ll have to try to watch the Spike Jones vid at home tonight (yes, I’m back online, although shackled to the cable in the wall until I can get my wireless card drivered up again)
In the meantime, some billiards:
Anger without logic is scary.
Sworn on a Bible!
In some areas socialism is absolutely necessary to actual get something done or in some cases to save money. I can admit that. I don’t think any tea party goer would deny that. IE the Subway in New York or their city watter. but for me in my little town I have a well and I never use public transit.
Would people on the other end take a pledge to for go anything that was brought about by capitalism? I’m sure they wouldn’t. I wouldn’t expect them to. But there are lines that I don’t think should be (or should have been) crossed. One example is Unemployment Insurance. I would buy my own if their wasn’t a system in place.
Lunch with EssBee rulz
so close: http://i.imgur.com/UvOr8.gif
OMG. I’m older than EssBee. I’m not sure why that comes as such a surprise…
EssBee: I was the manager of my highschool BB Team. I lettered in it. Now, I don’t watch it either.
VAN: John Barrowman played a Blond Arian Nazi in “The Producers”. The man can sing. It was proof that he could easily pull off Captain America… Of course, he’s a citizen of the UK, so the ‘merican Hollywierd perducers decided not to use him. Bollocks. He’d be awesome.
George Lazenby is still alive? 2nd Worst Bond evar. How does he fit into the rest of the Trek themed guests?
Gas Station Customer: “Damn these glasses, son.”
Navan Johnson: “OK. I Damn Thee!”
(sigh. I can’t believe I’m correcting people’s quotes.)
Lunch with Lo Pan is da bomb.
OLDER THAN ESSBEE! Do you have a horn on your walker, Lejon?
You guys made a Lo/Bee lunch MMMmmmeetup happen?! Teh excellent!
Lejon, Does that mean I got the right movie?
I was even fuzzy on that part. I think I saw the movie on TV when I was 10.
“My Lunch with Essbee”
Now THERE’S a movie I’d go see.
reaper: The movie is The Jerk. Steve Martin flick. He plays “a poor black child” named Navan (Navin?) Johnson.
On his adventure to find a place where he can fit in, he goes through a number of jobs, like working at a circus, and a gas station attendant.
A man comes into his service station, is constantly leaning forward and having his glasses slide off his face and cursing the glasses. At one point he says “Damn these glasses, son.”
So Navan picks up the glasses, points at them and says, “I Damn Thee!”.
Then he repairs the glasses so that they stop falling of the man’s face, and adds a little handle to the bridge so that the man won’t put stress on the hinges which causes them to fall off, but rather put all the stress on the bridge where it belongs.
The invention later becomes called “the Optigrab” and makes and loses Navan a fortune.
Lo Pan: Yeah, that looks cool. Nice bath shot. 😉
“In more distressing news, it appears that Isla Fisher married Borat”
She must just enjoy the simple things in life. Like assreams of body hair.
I A SAG?
Eh, Isla still hurts my pants.
“assreams of body hair”
OK. I will not explain the FarScape reference in that…
Teen Valley Girl in Mall: “You, are such, a geek.”
Sigmund Freud: “Vaht is a geek?”
Sounds like Jar Jar to me.
I am such a geek, but I am not Sigmund Freud.
Sigmund Freud: “Hello. I am Doctor Freud, but you can call me Siggy.”
Teen Valley Girls in Mall giggle and laugh.
Sigmund Freud: “You seem to be suffering from a mild hysteria.”
Is that a Bill & Ted’s reference??
Jack: Yes. Yes it is.
Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure.
I saw it 6 times in the theater.
Got the VHS for a birthday.
Lost the VHS when an apartment got burglarized.
Searched long and hard for a replacement years later, only to find a copy with Spanish subtitles (¡Exellente!)
And then it finally was released to DVD, and I now have a copy that I can watch any old time.
Ooh. Left out that I had the soundtrack on cassette!
***which reminds me I need to pick it up on CD…***
I’m not sure why I like the film so much.
Perhaps because parts were filmed here in Phoenix…
Strange things are afoot at that Circle K in Tempe.
All my life
I’ve wanted to fly
Like the birds
that you see
way up in the sky.
in the morning sun
Flying hi in the sky
’til the day is done.
I can’t break away.
I can’t break away.
Like a child
in his fantasy
in the walls
All my life
I’ve wanted to fly
but I don’t have the wings
and I wonder why
I can’t break away.
I can’t break away.
Oh, Momma told me
when I was young
Stand tall girl you’re number one
Well you can be
what you want to be
but you can’t change the course of your
I can’t break away.
I can’t break away.
They filmed at Golfland/Sunsplash in Mesa
Cactus High School.
and, yeah, some random Circle K (I don’t know where)
Darn. It’s coronado High…and the circle K isn’t so random, but it actually is in Tempe. I think I’ve been to it.
It’s amazing how San Dimas California, IN NO WAY (yes, way) resembles the Phoenix metro area…
Do you also own Bogus Journey, Lejon?

The spit is that video was epic.
Look! It’s Charlie’s Angels.
Sign me up, I am totally down for Les Adventures Extraordinaires de Adele Blanc-Sec.
Wow! Next Deadpan MMMMeetup, we need a Bill and Ted film set tour!
(Although, part of me is wondering: If “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure” was made and distributed by Hollywood companies, as I presume it was, why on Earth did they go all the way to Phoenix/Tempe to film when the real San Dimas is right in their backyard? Or maybe it was made independently?)
I am serious about wanting to go and see those places the next time I’m in Phoenix, though.
Oh, wrong movie.
Whoa, definitely wrong movie.
You’ll be waiting a while for your opponent to make a move in Scrabble:
Haven’t had a chance to go through the articles yet, but Lifehacker shares that the BBC is releasing a bunch of “master class” articles on nature photography:
Morning Pan, Hope everyone has a not “Fuck IT!” Tuesday.
Damn that Monday, son!
reaper, I think that’s guaranteed since hubby is sick and can’t make it happen 🙁 😳
sorry to hear that bunny,
hope he feels better soon.
Ha! “oops” has been changed, I forgot. :blush:
I wanna add to the linky goodness!
And, for you Twilight fans
I see your linky goodness and raise one more.
If it’s real, yes it’s creepy. However I have so many issues with that pic, reaper mainly how true is the story that goes with it?
Bunny, I would bet it is crap.
But I look at it this way: like the movies Blair Witch and Paranormal Activity, we know they are movies but if you go in with the mind set it is real and you want to be entertained it can still be fun. And in both cases mission accomplished.
Tuesday – hmm.
Ok, then consider me creeped 🙂
Tuesday can only get better…
lost starts at 7!!!! well the one I missed last week will start at 7. Maybe it is time to take back my Tivo for Tuesday night.
Tuesday – feh
Lo Pan, maybe you should use your ancient mystical powers and make Tuesday go away.
Dammit that just made my pride go away. Tues is still here.
I think your powers do work, but take time. Give it about 14 hours and you’ll find the magic worked :cheerful:
is funny. Audio wise, NSFW but just gets funnier the longer you watch.
Which hopefully you can. It won’t play on my computer but DID on my TiVo.
not so funny. It is an amazing list with links to back up the statements.
Do not click if you’re not up for politically topical stuff this am.
I’m not in the mood for political stuff today but I’m sure I could find just as much stuff on the other side.
I think I still have a case of the Mondays.
CP: Must Have More – L7
I love The Onion. I listen to their daily podcast.
Here’s all I can muster toward the political discussion:
CP: America Is — Violent Femmes
The onion is great. I try to listen but often nothing downloads or I get the last month of podcasts. maybe it is just iTunes on win7 64bit. rarely had that issue with XP-32bit.
CP: One Love — The Flobots
CP: Still Searching — Damien Marley + Stephen Marley
How is that album EssBee?
The Flobots one.
reaper: Yeah, both parties are very hypocritical. I took that article, not as a screed against conservatives in general, but as one conservative that is very disappointed in the GOP. I think he raises some good points about not feeling represented by that party any more.
Dammit EssBee I wish the music transfer would have worked!!!
Flobots – local boys (and one hottie girl) that made good. I feel I should like them more because of that. Just cant get into em.
Ok TEB… we’ll see in 14 hours. 😛
Stupid WordPress. Moderates my YouTube video
Warning – NSFW language in that last link
Not sure, ditto – I just have a few songs. I like em okay.
Lo Pan: I only heard of Flobots when they had their megahit “Handlebars”. I didn’t like the song at first, at least until I listened to the lyrics. The album “Fight With Tools” won me over. Musically, I don’t think they are anything special, but they have great lyrics. I haven’t had a chance to listen to anything else they’ve done.
EssBee: thx. I’ll put it on my review list.
That list is huge.
Chris Evans has signed on to be Cap America. While I know this isnt most folks first choice it could be alot worse. He’s pretty much the only reason to ever watch the Fantastic Four films.
In news that will make Lo Pan happy, the Flames are sputtering out…
Lo Pan: He could do a good job. I’ll wait to see before making up my mind.
ditto lyrically I agree with you 100%. Theyre just on that border of catchy and annoying.
Know what else is huge?
In news that will make TEB happy, the Avs are sputtering out more bigger.
WOAH! Put that away before you get arrested. 😉
CP: Children’s Work — Dessa
This is a cute wiki. Search for “God” and see what comes up. Search for anything you like. Not complete but still fun.
The word “animal” also has a cute entry.
Trying to buy a house is a pain in the ass.
That is all.
Animal: Not Plant. Not Rock. Not Fungus. Not Machine. See American.
Ha! Another Flobots song came up in shuffle — Handle Bars
They’re kinda silly.
I think Sly B snuck these into our music library . . . Sneaky, sneaky
CP: A Girl Called Johnny — The Waterboys
Hi Jeremy. Worse than buying a house is owning a house. 😉
Acid: A liquid hallucionagenic drug…. You may see Satan…say hi.
I could do this all day. But have stuff to do 🙁
Whats a house?
Chris Evans as Cap America – I guess I didn’t need to watch those movies. Bah.
I dont mind the choice…yet.
Plus considering what theyre gonna do with the origin story….belch. That alone gives me low expectations
Lo, I think it is something you drop on witches when they are hurting short people with high pitched voices.
Wow. That was oppressively negative. Stupid allergies make me … aggressive.
“The Ten Word Wiki does not have any entries with the exact title “deadpan”
Would you like to create a new page with this title?”
Anyone here have the skilz to correct this abomination?
Nomad: allergic to bad superhero movies? 😉
Oh THATS a house!!!!
*feet curl up*
