I'd just ignore those useless comments and give them no attention-quota's at all.
They suck.
You win.
;)
Keep up the shizzle!

:(

Why wasn`t my email read out?

I thought you guys thought Elvis was flash.

notahowiefan said...

Deal or no deal is coming back! Are you as excited as most of america?

Alyx said...

Deal or No Deal is the biggest waste of television time.

All awards shows were also taken into consideration.

As a 28 year old dude, i thoroughly enjoyed opening my iTunes to see the explicit box, next to Scott and Steve. If this is going to Hurt your download count, then that sucks fucking ass. i hope that the guy who posted that chokes on balls. if it helps your "ratings", due to people who who want some 'naughty' in their podcasts, than more power to him.

hope this works out for you guys, does this mean that your podcast is forever marked, EXPLICIT?

keep up the bad words, and the great podcast, bung holes!

Ralph- said...

God, you guys sound really really lively this episode, Awesome Energy guys!

Scott and Steve said...

I control the explicit tag, I decided to put it on this week on the account of Dylan's awful, vulgar, and useless mouth.

I thought Hurley's comment about Bernard being a dentist was a nod to the fans commenting on Anna L getting work done on her teeth sometime between when she's having a drink in the lounge during the season one flashback and now (they look really differnt know versus season one). The only way that could happen in the Lost-universe is if she got the work done on the plane, thus Bernard must have done it.

Scott and Steve said...

Haha, good point Dan :)

The Sco said...

I wasn't a fan of the Toronto Girl's segment

Scott and Steve said...

Really, Kimberley did an excellent job!

Alyx said...

About how many minutes did you guys actually spend talking about Lost? Not including Kimberly's segment-which was awesome BTW. Granted Lost hasn't given us much to talk about lately. Just curious...:D

Hey guys! Mike from Manchester, UK here. I have this clip that I think you'd like to see.

Chuck Norris Wins!

Now there's a video game that got it right!

Loved the outtakes at the end of the last-but-one show where you repeatedly start the show over and over. More! Especially if they're put to such good music. You guys are confirming your status as my favourite podcast more every week. Can't wait for the next episode, hopefully I'll get an insightful comment in to you guys in time for the podcast. Also, I hope that you read this because that Chuck Norris gif is amazing.

Rusty said...

hey, man, awesome show! Glad to see my comment on there- The MYOKOMWITHSAS Theme song!!! Wooooooh!

Cassie said...

Screw the dude who gave you a one star rating. He doesn't know shit. Keep up the good work dudes!

Ralph- said...

is rusty allowed to listen to EXPLICIT content?!?!

aimee in little rock said...

Man, I thought about trying that morse code-dharma logo thing a while ago, but never had time to sit down and do it. That sucks that nothing really came out of it. Oh well, at least I didn't waste my time (even though I'm sure I will someday anyway). It's about time we all heard some bad religion on the show, so get off your taints and play some already. Jorge Garcia rules.

reb said...

Thanks for doing such a great job on the podcast. You asked about the code on the box with three lines, some broken.

The box itself looks like the I Ching. (Pronounced E-ching I was told) I was reminded of a Sci-Fi book I read a while back called The Man in the High Castle, a book by Philip K. Dick. I re-read parts of it and it has to do with judgments in several individuals’ life based on the flip of coins. It also has to do with an alternate reality after WW2 in which Japan and Germany have won the war and are dividing the world. This reminded me of Dharma and Hanso… I may reread this book carefully and see if there is anything else.

Scott and Steve said...

Aimee! Great call on Bad Religion. Enough of this emo crybaby Cure cover crap.

I actually petitioned Craig to do an entire podcast over the Slayer album Reign in Blood. He said he would do it, but a promise from Craig is as useless as anything from my vulgar, useless mouth.

And sorry, Elvis, I forgot. Which is weird because you're Always On My Mind. Next time.

Scott and Steve said...

And for those of you who can read English better than Craig, here's my actual response to Matt's question "Does the show get you laid?"


Craig has a girlfriend, so no. The only lady action I've received since starting this has been from girls with whom I've never discussed the podcast. It has gotten me the following in descending order:

1. Email
2. Confused stares at the mention of the word "podcast"
3. Unrealistic suggestions about using it to get a job
4. $3.20 from Google AdSense
5. Organized

Anyway, thanks for listening, and we'll try to "keep it up."

Dylan

Dan C said...

So how did you spend the $3.20?

I'd be interested to know what other shows you guys like (obviously The Office), but I'm curious what else... I love me some Battlestar Galactica, Veronica Mars, and 24; all of which has some mystery to them like Lost. Season 1 of BSG and VM are out on DVD, if you haven't seen them - highly recommended.

Scott and Steve said...

I'm not quite sure how, but I do manage to stay busy enough to not watch a whole lot of television. Lost is the only one I currently try to watch when it airs. Craig usually shows me the latest episodes of The Office on his DVR. Otherwise I like to watch Everybody Hates Chris, America's Next Top Model, Project Runway, 60 Minutes, Now and Antiques Road Show, if I happen to catch any of those. Special mentions to Arrested Development and Stella, which I'm afraid I must now live without. My favorite sitcom all-time is News Radio, favorite drama is The Sopranos.

And I've invested the $3.20 in titanium futures.

Dylan

Katie said...

Dylan!

I can't believe Now and Antiques Roadshow are in the same rotation as America's Next Top Model!

I'm a PBS junkie. The only time I really venture from that when watching TV is American Idol (because I'm convinced I'm going to recognize someone because I went to Performing Arts high school) and Grey's Anatomy and, of course, LOST. Oh yeah, and also, any 24 hour news program (excluding FOX News, which I refuse to watch for obvious reasons...the same reason I won't use myspace for the most part).


PS: What's the big deal about the explicit tag? The news has death and destruction every night but you say "fuck" and it's explicit. Stupid.

Katie said...

Also:

You will all hear from my a lot because Boston has a blizzard warning for a while and as of right now we have 18 inches of snow (7:50pm 2/12).

Will Northeatern have classes tomorrow? Probably. Dammit.

Alyx said...

Dylan, Dylan...at least you added The Sopranos in there. I was getting worried about you around the ANTM, Project Runway section.

Granted, PR is awesomeness.

Alias! That was the show that started it all for me, and had it not been for that show (which thanks to the popularity of Lost is committing suicide) I would have never watched Lost.

You should check out How I Met Your Mother- Doogie at his finest!

As for the source of my news, I stick to The Daily Show and Best Week Ever. :D The news is depressing, why not have fun with it?

aimee in little rock said...

Lost (duh), CSI, CSI:NY (but only because I talk to Gary Sinise's dad), The Office, and Scrubs. By default of being married, I'm forced to watch Nascar and A LOT of food network shows.

Katie said...

Aimee!

NASCAR?? Really? Maybe it's just because I've been raised in the north, but NASCAR?

(just know, no offense, just good humor)

Anonymous said...

Is MySpace owned by Rupert Murdoch or is Boston just too liberal to allow conservative news?

Scott and Steve said...

NASCAR and ANTM are things you really have to try in order to understand their appeal. I say this from the perspective of a convert on both issues. This was also true of Lost. Once I understood the mechanics of how these things worked, it was easy to stay interested.

Also, I should mention that if I had more access to channels that played nothing but music videos, I probably wouldn't watch any other television.

Katie said...

Myspace is own by Rupert Murdoch, so I, personally, won't use it for the most part. It's my politics. I wasn't born or raised in Boston or anywhere near there, so it has nothing to do with that. Only my personal politics.

Katie said...

Dylan,

As far as I'm concerned, watch what you please. No hate here. I was just suprised.

Katie said...

One more thing...

As soon as Rupert Murdoch sanctions actual news without obvious and complete bias, I'll watch it. To me, that's not news. Sorry.

Jesse said...

I'm telling you guys, Anal Lucia sucks. The writers are going to kill her off in a gruesome way.

Dan C said...

Wow, I found Kimberly's segment great - well produced, fully researched, and informative; kind of the "Ying" to the normal MYOKOMwSAS "Yang". Not sure what the complaint was, but I'm looking forward to more from her...

Personally, I would have saved the $3.20 for a bitchin "Digital Attitude" tatoo, but that's just how I roll.

Hey, the bars surrounding the dharma logo are like the I-Ching. here is some information about it and how to "read" the bars.

amanda said...

I know I'm in the minority, but I also didn't like Kimberly's segment, but it's only because I found her music highly distracting, otherwise it was interesting.

This is Kyle Pilkington.

Right, well eh...I have...a couple theories that go along with your eh...ideas.

First, there's this one about the lines of the Dharma Initiative symbol.

I eh...I've already tackled...this dilemma on a Fuselage forum, and here's the link for you wankers.

http://www.thefuselage.com/Threaded/showthread.php?t=34952&highlight=bacchusyappy

So, that's my theory on that, and eh...right.

Also, I'll try your morse code bit too since I've operated a CB radio as a kid, I know about the current technology we're all steeped in like a hot cup a' English tea.

Chip-chip-cheerio, Tweedle Dum signing off. My 'ead's killing me from Ricky squeezing it.

Bloomers!

Show off...

Pam said...

I know that you talked about the music being by Glenn Miller and the radio station, but did you mention that Glenn Miller is another person who disappeared? His airplane vanished during World War II.

Great show. I disagree with Kimberly about Cassidy catching Sawyer out though. I thought that he let her catch him trying to con her as part of his (successful) long con of her.

Kimberley said...

:(

Already haters for the LOST Diary. Boo-earns!

Pam, after watching the Long Con for a 2nd time, I agree with you about Sawyer setting Cassidy up for a greater part of his Long Con...I put the report together right after the show to air the next morning here in Toronto, and that was my first impression.

Amanda, I agree with you about the music...it was a last minute decision. There was this
F*%$ING annoying hiss I couldn't get rid of. So I covered it up with music...bad call on my part, but thanks anyway!

Scott & Steve, as always awesome show! Rusty's theme song had me laughing out loud!

Peace.

The One Star Guy said...

Sorry guys! I really didn't mean to hurt your feelings. In fact, I think I'm starting to love you. And I mean "LOVE" you! Enough that I want to be the "AND" in "Scott & Steve". In fact, I want to dip my body in oil and make a Scott/Me/Steve sandwich![oh...i'm getting HOT just thinking about that.ahhhhh]
But Hey! I'll try to say nice things from now on...and at least I got mentioned in your Podcast...ROCK ON!!!

aimee in little rock said...

Katie,

Personally, I really don't enjoy watching Nascar; I only do it because I don't have a choice if my husband's watching it at home. Going to a race - now that is actually a lot of fun. It's just like a concert - but without all the music. It's loud, people get drunk, everything's overpriced, you get dizzy, and a lot of people smell like b.o. - see? just like a concert.

Scott and Steve said...

Correction: I just listened to this, and I realize that I referred to Rupert of the Gorillaz. There is no such character, I meant to say Murdoch. I'm not sure if that was the influence of the Australian news tycoon. Also I alluded to the Chemical Bros. doing tracks with Bernard Sumner. I meant Bernard Butler, though perhaps the Bros. should contact Mr. Sumner as I believe that would be an inspired collaboration.
