Cats as cats. Kind of like those mirrors that face each other and go on to infinity.

"Hello Kitty, Goodbye Dignity"

I'm still laughing at that. That is like the fanciest cat I've ever seen. S/he is so regal by the way s/he is posing.

Chris JC said...

I'm assuming this was the cat's own choice...

Jordan from the 206 said...

I hate cats. Cats are evil.

Crazy Sarah Connor ep last night. I just posted my thoughts on the forum. Very Lost-ish ep, eh?

Heroes was just ok. A lot of stuff happened, but nothing too crazy. Mainly a "getting there" ep setting things up. Sylar was pretty funny in that one scene. lol.

memphish said...

Especially for Jordan

Sorry Jordan. But you know as lame as those unis are I thought it could give you ammo.

I'll graciously take whatever you want to dish out. I live in an abundantly red state despite my holding my breath until I turn blue.

Holli

Jordan from the 206 said...

(I can't spell right.)

With all due respect. Holli, you make me angry. I need to go find some republican propaganda to combat this continued sucker punch. Either that or start making fun of Lost. At least I can take further solace in that their uniforms are as goofy as their name. Did anybody tell the OKC Thunder that they are in the NBA, and not the WNBA? Do they realize that they are going to be playing the Chicago Bulls, Detroit Pistons, and Phoenix Suns. Not the Chicago Sky, Detroit Shock, and Phoenix Mercury? Oh foolish midwesterners. Y'all be a funny bunch.

Jordan from the 206 said...

My post should read before Holli's last. I kept editing it due to speeling mistakes.

I know you're political situation Holli. And for that reason, I know I don't need to antagonize you any more than you probably are on a daily basis.

/West coast liberal snob

memphish said...

Oh and if you want to pick on LOST, start with the current ARG. It is extremely lame.

Speaking of LOST, I guess I'll get excited when it gets close to coming back, but I'm suffering from out of sight/out of mind right now. Lame as the rest of TV is, I'm still not missing it that much. I guess S4 also left us with not a lot to speculate about, and as such I'm not speculating just waiting patiently for when they want to show me something new.

a hello kitty kitty made the grade. heheheh. poor cats!

I'm allergic to cats. but i love them so.

Apparently people are allergic to their saliva. I did not know this.

i want a cat. just so it's constantly LOLcat time.

MB said...

Yeah - I thought I was smelling stank when I saw the trailer for Lakeview Terrace. Thanks for the heads up Kim!

[ally] said...

i'm allergic to cats as well. is the saliva thing true? because i don't even have to be near a cat, just it's hair and i go into full allergy attack.

i don't know if i'm just being a masochist but lately i've been wanting a cat, i'm trying to figure out if i'm just allergic to certain kinds or if i should just nix the cat idea altogether.

Stephanie said...

If you think cats are evil, then you haven't been exposed to the right cat. My cat is awesome. My father-in-law's cat however is possessed by a demon. Dear Jesus, we have been reduced to discussing cats on the blogspot. I'm trying to figure out what Jordan and Holli's conversation has to do with blue states and red states.

memphish said...

Next time we need I thread, I nominate this photo.

Holli

Herlihy said...

Cats clean themselves by licking themselves, hence their saliva is all over their hair. Thus comes the misconception that the hair causes the allergies.

I AM A FOUNTAIN OF USELESS KNOWLEDGE

go me.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Cat's aren't just evil. They are the bitchiest animal known to man. I've always compared cats to teenagers. They're moody, sleep all the time, glare at you, leave without telling you where they're going, don't want to be around you, and only want you to feed them and give them a place to stay. Who wants a pet that just uses you? I know there are exceptions to the rule. One of my friends has the friendliest cat I've ever met. She acts like a puppy dog. But that still isn't enough to sway me from my overall opinion. Cats, just like the state of Oklahoma, suck. Dogs all the way.

Herlihy said...

Cat's aren't just evil.

Misused apostrophes are though... ahem.

anyways. What you described isn't just exclusive to teenagers... I've not been a teenager in almost two years (yes i know, i'm well old :( ) and i still do all those things.

Selfish existences are well gratifying.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Bite me England. Go brush your teeth.

Herlihy said...

That was a bit harsh.What's wrong with a bit of constructive criticism? Generalised personal insults based on a national stereotype? Witty.

If you don't get corrected then how are you going learn? If you're going to use our language, might as well do it right.

I apologise if i was a tad harsh. But it's what you get when you're a member of the Apostrophe Preservation Society.

Jordan from the 206 said...

You honestly think I put that apostrophe there on purpose? That's hilarious. Thanks for the advanced grammer lesson.

You really aren't helping out the stereotype that all Brits are smug condescending elitists. ;)

Be sure to let me know what lesson you learn at university tomorrow buddy. Hopefully it will be about fractions. Iz'd neva got to that class in skool.

Jordan from the 206 said...

And just for the record. My mother is British. So it's ok for me to make the jokes. :P

Now go get me a crumpet.

Herlihy said...

I don't really see how you could press it by accident... the apostrophe button, on the majority of standard keyboard layouts, be it English or American, is nowhere near the kays used for the word "cats". So...

Er... tomorrow? We're discussing the opression in Chinea Achebe's Things Fall Apart. No fractions. I'm highly sceptical that i'll be learning about fractions while doing an English degree.

I am a smug condescending elitist. I have no qualms about that though. It's what makes me special :D

Don't think I'm just picking on you... I once got called a cunt by the lead singer of my then-favourite band because i corrected him. But he's amazingly pompous anyway, so i don't mind as much.

PS. Oh, and it's spelt "grammar". No e in it.

Chris JC said...

"(yes i know, i'm well old :( ) and i still do all those things."

I'm assuming you meant those Is to be capitalised?

Chris JC said...

It didn't really occur to me how LOSTish the last Sarah Connor was but with the flashback structure, untrustworthy lead characters and some old-fashioned WTF, you might be onto something.

Herlihy said...

I never said I was infalliable...

Chris JC said...

True enough - or you'd have typed "keys" instead of "kays" back there. And put the word "to" between "going" and "learn".

Chris JC said...

How's yer flu, by the way?

Mr. Bill said...

Wow!

On the lighter side of things...

We are continuing our Halloween podcast special with Evil Dead 2.

Give it a listen and let me know what you think. Here

And...Do me a big favor and call our voicemail and tell us the scariest movie you ever saw and or the first scary movie you were able to watch.

btw...you can use all the bad grammar you wish.

Chris JC said...

No "Wow" necessary. I'm guessing that means it looks like I'm picking on Herlihy. I'm really not, I'm just having another night without the ability to sleep. I'm getting a lot of that lately, so I'm probably a bit snippy, which also means I probably shouldn't come here.

Mr. Bill - your podcast is already downloaded in Chris World.

Herlihy said...

True enough - or you'd have typed "keys" instead of "kays" back there. And put the word "to" between "going" and "learn".

Ah, pedantry. I love it.

But meh... It's quarter to three and i've not slept in 42 hours. What do you expect?

I'm all bunged up and my nose is sore from blowing it loads. I feel like crap.

I should go to sleep really. I've got to be in uni at 9... :/

Chris JC said...

Cat's

Herlihy said...

You were being snippy? I didn't realise... I took it with a pinch of salt anyways.

Chris JC said...

Bless ya, sir.

How's yer flu?

Herlihy said...

That apostrophe irritates me way too much. :(

Herlihy said...

You just asked how my flu is...

Hmm.

Mr. Bill said...

Thanks Chris!
Gives a call if you can.

Traffic around here is terrible because of the bi-anual redneck fest.

Never mind - have a good powerful sleep.

Oops!

Chris JC said...

It's correction central 'round here!

Herlihy said...

Meh... I've got 10 minutes of Heroes left yet... I'd be rude to stop it now...

memphish said...

Was Jordan calling for a crumpet or a strumpet?

Chris JC said...

I like that: a hot, buttered strumpet.

Jordan from the 206 said...

I once got called a cunt by the lead singer of my then-favourite band because i corrected him.

Well since he already said it, I won't bother.

I could go on making sarcastic jokes and what not and hide my annoyance with jest. But this is already getting old. Herlihy, you annoy the fuck out of me. And not just today. Cheers. ;)

Stephanie said...

Well, ok. That was wierd.
My co-worker who has all my Lost DVDs is talking about being excited about the formation of the army in season two. I told him I was afraid he would be disappointed.

Mr. Bill said...

Yeah, The army idea didn't quite work out did it?

Jordan from the 206 said...

Been watching season 1 of Homicide: Life on the Street. Yeah I know, only 15 years late. But really liking it. So far it's all taken straight from David Simon's book. I'm interested to see how the show handles things when they've used up everything from the book. I now see why people have always spoke highly of Andre Braugher.

Steph and Andrew, you guys are excited about Nick and Nora? Ugh. Maybe it's just the "Infinite Playlist" title, but it seems rather obnoxious and trying too hard to be hip and alternative. I get a very Juno vibe from it. Which I know to most isn't a bad thing. lol.

Stephanie said...

I heard Nick and Norah doesn't live up to it's awesome soundtrack but I'll watch anything with Michael Cera even though he doesn't want to do the Arrested Development movie.

Mr Bill, I thought I was subscribed to your podcast. But obviously I'm not. Will render that soon.

Mr. Bill said...

Great Steph!

Call us if you can.

Jordan from the 206 said...

I think I'm getting Michael Cera'd out. He's ok and all. Just always the exact same. And he's a bitch for not wanting to do the AD movie.

andrew. said...

- Herlihy, have you ever tried to read any of redrabbitblue's posts? Your head may explode. :)

- i am officially time-shifted 24 hours. i am watching all of my stories one day late now. i caught up on Terminator: SCC (i hate typing the name of that show!) & Heroes tonight. It's a good thing i had Heroes DVR'd because i fell asleep 4 times.

- i think the Nick & Nora movie looks breezy fun. It's probably nothing new, but i prefer these kinds of comedies to ones with "jokes" every time.

- hope you enjoy Homicide Jordan. I really enjoyed it and i still get a kick whenever i see any of the actors pop up in random roles.

- Holli, totally agree with the LOST 'out of sight out of mind' attitude. Right now, i don't even remember season 4 very fondly. I'm looking forward to the DVD's to revisit

Herlihy said...

I could go on making sarcastic jokes and what not and hide my annoyance with jest. But this is already getting old. Herlihy, you annoy the fuck out of me. And not just today.

Well. I'm sorry... Er. I actually am. Sincerity. Er. To be honest... I quite liked you. Oh well.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Don't sweat it dude. I have pretty thick skin. And I'm the last person to hold a grudge. I come from a loud family where we air our grievances and get it over with (usually in an ugly manner, but that's a story for my future therapist. lol). The next day all is usually forgotten. For all my bark, my bite is relatively tame. Sorry if I was too harsh.

Just believe me on this bro. I realize that I wasn't using "cat's" as a possessive noun or as a contraction. Sometimes when you're typing fast and watching tv at the same time, you just type things for no reason.

Hey, my hair pretty much looks like that at the moment.

My veins don't, though. Kistchy there clearly has too much blood.

they need some new pictures of him. i think we've posted these before. i feel like maybe we need something for the guys to look at now, but you all have such different taste in women it'd be hard to pick just one. so maybe a guy can pick one.

Tim Riggins does need new promotional pics but I'd be surprised if that's in Direct TV 101's budget.
Now for someone more in my age-range-what about the coach?

Damn you and your DirectTV!! I will have to wait until February for my lovely Tim Riggins (he's Canadian by the way, so are his veins)

Alirio, I already have tix to the Dolphins game in Toronto. Are you going--or planning on selling them? My sister (who if you knew her you'd be surprised) has tix too. She got them from work. So if anyone wants to go, and will be in the Toronto area that day. I also have 2 tix for sale. I'm only selling them for $750

I don't buy the "If it's a competition, it's a sport" line of thinking. If that's the case, "I Love New York" and "Hole in the Wall" are sports.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Speaking of Mr. McFur. Wonder what's happened to him? Been a few threads since he's posted.

Steph, that Supernatural show looks like such a girly/teeny bopper CW show. With all the hot guys and what not. I don't think I've ever heard a good word about it from anyone besides females.

Also in Homicide right now is Juliet's dead ex-husband/the evil governor from Oz.

Why I don't do Facebook.

Ocho Cinco knows what's wrong with the Bengals.

Two of the detectives in this old episode of Homicide just paid $12 for gas.

Jordan, don't you trust my taste? Other than the one lame, random line of exposition we get each episode, Supernatural is cheese-free. Here's an example- "You know in some ancient cultures, people believe a mirror can show you your soul." Or something like that. It's very good. And I'm not saying that just because of my new unhealthy obsession with Jensen Ackles. There's also the skinny, cute girl each week.

Mr. Bill said...

My sister just had a scare with her debit card.

She went to a store and her debit card was denied so she paid cash and she called the bank to check her balance and someone had charged over $3000 dollars in 10 and 30 dollar increments over a two day span.

She went to the bank and they told her this was rampant and for her to check her balance every day.

I just today had to return a form to the fraud department of my credit card company to write off some things I'd been charged, like some £40 flights and stuff.

FRAUD GUY: There's one here for a Muslim dating service?

CHRIS: Nope.

FRAUD GUY: £235 flight to the United Arab Emirates?

CHRIS: Not me.

Etc.

Stephanie said...

I've been hearing a lot about fraudulent chargers to debit cards lately. What do you do? Close out your account and reopen another? That's a lot of trouble.

Been listening to Movies With Balls all morning. You guys are hilarious, Mr. Bill. Going to call in with my scariest movie I've ever seen. I'd really like a shirt.

I has such a good time recording with Alirio and Kimberley last night. I can't wait for you guys to hear. I'm sure you'll find it fascinating. I'll let you know when it's out.

Chris JC said...

Steph, when my card company called me, they ran through some charges until I reached the most recent one that I, while not totally recognising, was at least for something that I might have done (charge £11 to PayPal). They sent me a new card with a new number and all the genuine charge from my previous card. Simple.

Now anyone using my previous number will flag up instantly as badness.

They didn't see my card or my statement, what they had was a random number generator attached to a credit card authorisation machine (we found the time they authorised my card without charging anything to it) - the machine tries to authorise tons of combinations, and gets tons of error messages until one of the numbers works and then it logs it so people can use it.

Moral of the story is pay attention to your statements. The other moral is screw companies that let you use a credit card without asking for your three-digit security code.

PalmerEldritch said...

when i had a $1000 fraudulent charge, i told my bank about it and they deactivated my card, sent me a new one with a different number, and then refunded my money.

memphish said...

Your debit card should have a number other than the account ID number on it, so as Palmer and Chris described, they should be able to cancel a debit card without you having to close and open accounts.

Have you been to see it Chris? I hear it has to attend board meetings every year.

Holli

Chris JC said...

I don't know if a rando like me can just go there and see it or whether I'd need to be in a position to attend the meetings or votes so that I can see Bentham not voting.

I wonder if I can bribe someone and get him into a Dharmalars shirt.

Would that be a bit too far?

Yes, of course it would - sorry.

No that would be awesome!

andrew. said...

- what if instead of Bentham in the box it turned out to be Sawyer or Desmond?! ur mind iz blowned!

- okay. so i watched Pushing Daisies last night. Really enjoyed it as usual (posted some of my thoughts on the MYOKM board). I have one bone to pick with it, and, i realized, a growing number of TV shows. I could not hear half of the dialogue despite my TV being turned up fairly loud because the score was drowning everything out. I've decided that the sound producers for Pushing Daisies, Mad Men, Battlestar Galactica, and some other shows i can't think of this second, are mixing their shows with home theaters in mind. It's probably not a bad idea considering that these shows will exist longer as home media than in broadcast, but because i've just got a run-of-the-mill TV set with run-of-the-mill, front channel speakers, the mixes aren't being seperated into surround sound. They're just lumped together in one big, flat wall of sound, and the voices are losing to the music cues every time.
After years of working in music, i don't have the best hearing anyway, but i watched Fringe right after Pushing Daisies and i had no problem at all.
A dumb thing like this could cost some of these shows viewership.

Chris JC said...

They're clearly trying to match the success of the newer Doctor Who series - you couldn't hear most of that to start with either.

memphish said...

I agree with you about the sound Andrew. And for some reason ABC shows are the worst on my TV. I had it up in the 70s on my volume watching Pushing Daisies on my DVR this morning.

tomorrow's my last day here at work. everyone seems worried all of a sudden. i only told the bosses and people who i actually talk to, but i keep hearing rumors about me leaving. i've become the talk of the office this week, and no one has the guts to come ask me if it's true.

Mr. Bill said...

Thanks for calling Steph I am excited to hear it. I can't access my gmail account from work but when I go home I'll get it.

I'm not sure if there is a time limit but hope more people call to test that.

I just finished listening to your CIA podcast on SCC and it sounded great. I usually listen to the podcasts with only one earbud so when I was listening I heard your voice fine but Chris sounded like he was far away and then I realised that he was coming through fine on the other earbud so I listened to you in stereo.
LOL

Great job!

Please everyone call our show and tell us about your scary movie experiences. 1.205.332.1240

Mr. Bill said...

Chris you do a great Ahnald impression.

Chris JC said...

Thanks, Mr. Bill - it was a bit too Ranier Wolfcastle to be taken seriously.

Mr. Bill said...

Whatever happened to Matt Berry?

Chris JC said...

Snuff Box finally came out on DVD - but after the series he's generally been touring his records, and producing an album for Geno Washington.

He appeared really briefly in The Peter Serafinowicz Show (a sketch series from the man who did the voice of Darth Maul, and was "Pete" in Shaun of the Dead), and got a recurring role in series 2 of The IT Crowd (and presumably the forthcoming series 3 as well).

He also briefly appeared in okay-ish Garth Marenghi spinoff "Man to Man with Dead Learner", a spoof chat show.

All the same performance style - but WHAT a style!

Chris JC said...

"Man to Man with Dead Learner"

Ahem... "Man to Man with DEAN Learner".

(shamed)

Mr. Bill said...

Why won't she be mine?
I wish I was more attractive like Dagless.

LOL!!!

Mr. Bill said...

What i like to do is heat up a tin of soup, poach an egg in it and serve it with a pork pie sausage roll.

PalmerEldritch said...

oh. stephanie.

thanks for the bellucci the other day.

ga-row!

Chris JC said...

They weren't NSFW enough for my liking.

PalmerEldritch said...

so say we all.





any word on when BSG airs?

Hellga from AG is on Tabatha's Salon Takeover, my current favorite guilty pleasure show. She is still terrifying.

Bleaching your hair blonde is such a labourious task.

I wish i wasn't so high maintenance...

Chris JC said...

I've taken the precaution of having naturally amazing hair. It really does save time.

t-dot kim said...

Same here Chris, same here.

Chris JC said...

I need to get a picture so I can put my money where my mouth is.

Watched Pushing Daisies last night. Andrew is dead on about the sound. I could barely hear the dialog at certain moments when the music was really swelling. And other times it felt as if the characters were in a tunnel. Maybe it's correct that a lot of shows are broadcasting for surround sound, but this particular episode was really bad IMO. As for the show, so nice to have it back. Such a fun little show, and so colorful. The episode was good, but not great. Enjoyed it still.

So I'm still watching Homicide. Get this. Detective Munch, in an episode that aired in 1994, just went on a rant about how in the future there is going to be 500 tv channels, high definition, and people will be self reliant on email and the "information super highway", and how nobody will leave their couches to communicate with the outside world. lol. It was almost creepy.

Chris JC said...

Bite me, Munch.

Via email.

Stephanie said...

I'm in bad need of a haircut and highlight. Looking rather unkept as of late.

I watched T2 last night. Many similiarities to the show.

Chris JC said...

"Later, dickwad!"

Stephanie said...

The bad words were bleeped out. Or not bleeped but silenced.

Chris JC said...

That's no fun!

I'm guessing the violence remained fully uncut?

t-dot kim said...

Steph, I'm loving your avitar. I don't think I've ever watched an entire episode of Supernatural with the sound on. Those brothers are so hot.

Herlihy said...

Well. The bleach was fine... Now i'm onto the red dye.

Jesus. I know women less maintenance than me.

In other news. I bought some labret studs to replace my lip rings. But they're too long and a bit uncomfortable... how weird.

Also, there's a bit of casting news for Lost out there in the ether... so be careful if you don't want to know.

Chris JC said...

Whenever I see people with rings through bits of themselves, I imagine them hangin up by them.

I don't specifically want that to happen to them, it's just because my mind is fucking weird.

[ally] said...

kim, you so need to be watching Supernatural. You won't be disappointed.

Jordan from the 206 said...

"Steph, I'm loving your avitar. I don't think I've ever watched an entire episode of Supernatural with the sound on. Those brothers are so hot."

And there you have why I would never watch that show. lol.

Stephanie said...

Kim, the character development of the brothers is great. Sam is the sweet, sensitive one. Dean is the cynical, jaded, womanizer. Just my type.

Jordan from the 206 said...

That, and I'm not big on the whole supernatural/mystical/demonic genre to begin with.

[ally] said...

Jordan I think you'd enjoy the girl of the week on that show, and that's probably about it.

t-dot kim said...

I know I wouldn't be disappointed with the eye-candy.

I'm not into teen-ghost/"supernatural" stories :( so I'd get bored very easily.

/didn't watch or like Buffy

t-dot kim said...

...however, I do have a new picture for the next thread.

/hurrah for the ladies!

[ally] said...

when do we get to see this new picture?

PalmerEldritch said...

new thread.
