wahooo! this episode of Lost should make for some great discussion - can't wait to listen.

Jellymanianos said...

oingo boingo and Olivia newton john in the same podcast - you're a maniac! I'm gonna leave you a big british voicemail when i've listened to this bad boy!

Datty Mike said...

Another great Dharmalars, and jimmy's score section goes from strength to strength..


P.s. Loved the musical ghosts at the end there!
ooooohh, ooooooh, oh ha, ha ha oh, ooooooh!

Jellymanianos said...

My favourite one liner from Predator would almost certainly be, "I ain't got time to bleed!".

Ralph, Hannah (my other half) wants to know if you're Jewish. I know not why. I think she saw the pic you use on the blog. I keep forgetting to ask, so i'm asking now. She's slightly obsessed with the Jewish thing at the moment, because i took her to see my football team the other week, who just happen to have a large Jewish following in the support, because of the area in north London the team is from. One of the chants is 'Yids, yids, yids' and she couldn't understand why we weren't all arrested for inciting religious violence, until i pointed out we make fun of ourselves, and they don't have enough cells for 45,000 people.
I have know idea why i told you all that, but i you probably switched off at 'football' anyway.

Jellymanianos said...

...and we defintitely need more swearing! I mean, if Aimee is allowed to uzi cunt into everywhere, then you could at least make the effort. You've seen the pictures of my missus, and she's forever calling me a cunt - normally for not putting my laundry in the bin - so think of her calling me a cunt and you should be set.
Note to kids: Using swear words is not big and it's not clever. It is funny in the right places though.

Jellymanianos said...

I used the 'c' word 3 times there. The fact that i didn't realise until i'd re-read back indicates i may have a problem. Fuck it.

aimee in little rock said...

Great show guys, once again you made my morning!

Lost conversation was great, the Predator quote was cool, Jimmy's music was awesome because I love the Incredibles, and that song at the end was hilarious.

Doesn't iTunes have parental controls? You would think there'd be a way for you to block your kids from being able to download explicit material. I fucking love the explicit tag. If the Lost Initiative were all namby-pamby like all the others, I doubt I'd be here as often. I like being able to express myself in the least educated way, not worry about offending people, and just say whatever the fuck I want.

And Tim, in my defense, I never started the cunt uzi assault - that was Ryan A. Howard. I only helped keep it going!

Jimmy said...

Well, the "C" word is chucked around quite a lot in the UK, but it's taken VERY seriously here. It's used in a more hateful way here...I think that's the main difference. I had to stop using it as liberally as I used too.

I had to drive on the fucking right as well. And start going to the dentist.

Jellymanianos said...

Sorry Aimee, all credit to you for not taking the kudos of starting the cunt evolution, however, i'm pretty sure there was a rather infamous monster debate on a podcast somewhere, and cunt was banded about quite freely...

Ryan said...

Hey Ralph!

We forgot to mention that the guy in the monitor might be Marvin Candle/Mark Whitman. Unless you had no intention of mentioning it at all, and you were just humoring me.

And who was that "special" call from?

aimee in little rock said...

It really takes a lot of to offend me. I remember the c word used to bother me a lot, but I don't know why. At some point, I just stopped caring. I really don't think anything offends me anymore. Except for maybe unprovoked personal attacks. Because I don't like to let my heart rate go above 145.

aimee in little rock said...

Yeah, I'm sorry no one's commented on that yet Ryan. That's fucking awesome that Jorge Garcia called the Dharmalars.

Datty Mike said...

Germaine Greer (Aussie feminist for those who don't know) did a program on the bbc a few months back about how there should be nothing wrong with using the 'C' word.
It was pretty funny.
She went to a doctor and asked what her reaction would be if a woman came in and said "i've got something wrong with my cunt". The doctors face was a fucking picture!!

Benjamin said...

Yeah, cunt is pretty huge here. Both the sexual organ and the word. I totally agree with Jimmy's assessment, and I totally laughed at the adjustments he had to make to live in the states. I don't know if I can use it myself in the podcast, at least not more than once or twice, but I will try to step up to the mature tag. But only in context. I don't want the show to turn into a list of swears. We're saving that one for sweeps.

Jellyman, Ralph is not Jewish. I'm way more Jewish than he is, and I'm not even Jewish.

Aimee, I'm sorry for being a little bitch. You were right. You were right to call me that. I'll get right on that puzzle, but I still have to wait until after the Halloween party, because I don't want the drunk-ass thieves at my house to steal some of the pieces.

aimee in little rock said...

Ralph, I totally agree that they're laying it on really thick to make us believe Eko is going to bite the dust next week, which is causing me to believe it's not going to happen. It's such an over-the-top red fish biscuit with it being his flashbacks, the machete slinging promo, the official podcast hints, and the talk show appearances, that it's almost TOO much.

However, maybe it's a reverse-reverse psychology maneuver. And the red herring is itself, a red herring. Think about it. They always have to stay one step ahead of us. It's just like Benry said. We're good, but they're um, gooder?

Oh, and by the way, do you actually know if Adewale is going to be on Good Morning America? Because I haven't been able to find a guest list for next Thursday's show yet. I know he's scheduled to be on Regis & Kelly that same morning, but they tape a few hours later, so he could still be doing both I suppose. R&K is live at 10am, GMA films at 7am, both in NYC.

Good on you, Ben. I'd be pissed if some douchebags stole the puzzle pieces. I'm almost done with mine. I want to see the glow in the dark message on the back! It better not be lame.

Ralph- said...

I JUST WOKE UP, NOW I NEED TO CATCH UP:

Ralph = German/Irish/Apache

Knucklecunt = Greatest Swear Word Ever

One Eyed Willie = Chaz Delabra

Special Call = Dre

Halloween Spooks = Outside My Window

Best Line In Predator = What's A Matter, the Government got pushing to many pencils?

Hannah = Slutty Rabbi Costume

Datty Mike said...

Or maybe its a red herring red herring red herring?
Hmmm, i think this is how black holes start.

Apparently you need to buy all four lost puzzles to get the complete message. Those damn Lost marketing people are too clever.

aimee in little rock said...

The fourth and final puzzle is now available. If no one steps up to the plate, I will.

Ralph- said...

here is a bit of behind the scenes info on last night episode recording. During the Bunny Shaking conversation, i lost my train of though completely due to the fact that Stevi was in the front room blasting the movie Psycho on the surround sound. I could not think straight with all that Bernard Herrmann entering my ears. Damn good score! did you know that the score to Psycho was done entirely with string instruments?

sayten said...

My happiness is tripled just knowing that Jorge listens to the Dharmalars.

aimee in little rock said...

Clue is one of my favorite movies, and I don't care who knows. I actually have a VHS copy of it in my office that my mom bought in like, 1988. I stole it from her.

Ryan said...

It is somewhat common for a guest to appear on Good Morning America and Live! with Regis and Kelly on the same day. Hell...Phil Collins appeared on Live Aid in both London and Philidelphia. Now that's amazing!

aimee in little rock said...

After Colleen died, why did Pickett automatically go to Sawyer and start beating on him, and ask Kate if she loved him? Why not Jack?

Benjamin said...

Clue is one of my favorites, as well. In addition to being really well written, there's this overlaying sense of fun and chemistry from all the awesome actors in it. And Madeline Kahn's lines in re: her hatred of Yvette is the piece of resistance.

I really enjoyed the calls on last night's episode. Aimee's calls made me smile, Dre was cool to hear from and his observation was kick-ass, there was a dude that made some really good points that I can't remember right now, and of course you know the rest.

Ralph- said...

Aimee, why did Sayid beat up on Gale?
as far as picket is concerned Sawyer is no different than the person who shot colleen. You have to remember, according to picket's point of view, sawyer is "an other"

aimee in little rock said...

Ah, touche. But still, my question is why not Jack instead? What's the difference? I mean, why walk all the way out there when he could have just beaten the crap out of Jack instead, who just happened to be standing RIGHT THERE already.

Jimmy said...

Well Pickets nose was already broken by Sawyer, so he was pissed by that. And I actually think that he would have killed him if she hadn't said that. When she said she loved him, he couldn't kill him, because he knew it would crush her. Does this make sense?

I guess I'm saying that he was making a very blurred point that no one who loves someone should lose someone (as he just did). Lets remember that his wife just died...can't be easy.

Jimmy said...

Also, speaking of love, loss etc...

So do you think that when Benjamin started quoting "Of Mice and Men", he was referring not only to Sawyer, but himself too.

If it's true he's been on the Island all his life. A man gets too lonely and he gets sick? Spine tumor? Just throwing it out there.

Hollerin' Holly said...

Olivia Newton John on the play list?! Thats cool.

Ralph- said...

Maybe Sawyer is more expendable to Picket than Jack is. maybe Picket isnt supposed to lose his cool in front of Ben? who the fuck knows anymore?

Holly, i think ONJ was HOT!

Jimmy said...

I can announce to you all that ONJ was the love of my life from about 5 to 10. Used to watch her on the Cliff Richard show in the early 70's BBC. Was devastated when her song "Long Live Love" didn't win the Eurovision Song Contest. Some unknown Swedish foursome beat her with "Waterloo".

God , I'm channeling my childhood...

aimee in little rock said...

I don't really like ONJ. Something about her annoys me. But I dig John Travolta.

With regard to Pickett though, who is he to start playing judge and jury? Let's remember who started terrorizing who first. The flight 815 survivors did NOTHING to provoke these fuckers. NOTHING. I feel no pity for Pickett or his wife.

They are the kidnappers, the captors, the killers, the terrorists, the psychological rapists, and Flight 815? They are just trying to survive and defend themselves.

The only 815er that even comes close to being an "island murderer" is Michael, but even HE did it to save his son's life. So I'm sorry guys, the pity speeches do nothing for me.

Jimmy said...

I guess I just miss Colleen :(

aimee in little rock said...

Jimmy, are you lonely?

You shouldn't be with all those freaking ladies chasing you.

Jimmy said...

Aimee,

you know how much women frighten me!

aimee in little rock said...

Which is why you talk to me so much. Because we all know I'm not REALLY a woman. I just have a manly voice, and I post fake pictures of some chick.

Hollerin' Holly said...

Ralph - Unfortunately I am old enough to vaguely remember Xanadu! LOL...I think every girl my brother dated in the early 80s looked like ONJ.

Jimmy said...

You know that's not true....

It's because you are in Little Rock. An entire continent away...that's the only reason I can sum up the courage to talk to you...

Nah...who am I kidding :) We all know I'm a tart!

Jellymanianos said...

Keeping the british end up, eh Jim? Good on yer, one of us has to!

Ryan said...

Eurovision? Sir Cliff? ABBA? Clearly, we need to serve our diverse audience and host a special EuroCast version of the Dharmalars.

aimee in little rock said...

I'm too much of a nerd to be intimidating to anyone, Jimmy! But I'll start sucking down helium before I talk on the phone so I can chuck the Scarlett Johansen man-voice.

Let me know when I can download the Euro'Lars.

Jimmy said...

Good point, Ryan

My only demand is that I get to sing the theme tune to the Euro'Lars (after I write it) :)

aimee in little rock said...

Will the "C", "W", or "T" words be somewhere in the lyrics?

Ralph- said...

C = cunt
W = ?
T = twat

Jimmy, if you do a theme song for the ero'lars, i will set up a iChat with you for some sort of insane podcast on the hiatus

aimee in little rock said...

Oh come on, someone who knows their Euro-slang is sure to get the "W"...!

Datty Mike said...

You missed out B as well...

Benjamin said...

Wanker?

Alternately I could have gone with:

Wankle Rotary Engine?

aimee in little rock said...

Yes, Ben! I always knew you were the smart one. That's why you're the Rubik's Cube master.

Ralph- said...

i was thinking Wagina

aimee in little rock said...

ooh, and Ralph's sneak's back on top!

Derrick Bates said...

Oh my god -- you guys cracked my shit up. I was picking up fast food at the drive up window when I got near the end of your show. Then I heard "we're not being scary enough and we're not swearing enough." Then, wait for it. A little longer...


BOO MUTHA FUCKER!!!

I almost peed my pants and the drive up girl thought I was nuts. What made that so funny to me (who knows) probably was the count chocula voice and the fact that neither of you thought it was funny. Just moved on.

I replayed that line about 10 times before I was through. Thanks for making my Friday very, very funny.

BOO MUTHA FUCKER!!!

Jellymanianos said...

If you do Eurolars on a weekend, you can call me on Skype, and i'll offer up some swearing, English style? My accent's not infected like Jimmy's either. His accent is definitely not 'pure' - i can't work out where he's from originally, and i'm normally pretty good at that. However, i also find it sexy - much like the girls, and i'm not even that way inclined!

Datty Mike said...

At a guess, i would say west midlands, not brummie, but sort of south from there.

Jellymanianos said...

I was going to say Leicester way, actually, but he has twangs of almost cambridgeshire type accent going on aswell.

Jimmy said...

Datty Mike is the winner...

I'm "Black Country". Raised in Dudley/Kingswinford. Family all around there, Wolverhampton. A HUGE portion of familly live in and around South Wales, as I am essentially by blood Welsh. Why is it fucked up...simple.
0-10: West Midlands
11-20: New Zealand
20-30: NZ, Australia, UK
30-40: The land of the Free ;)

And realize that throughout all those years regular visits to the old country off and on. Going back next year, any luck. I've done more miles than Alan Whicker!

I am aware it's been blurred and essentially bastardized.

So...we all straight now? :)

Ralph- said...

DERRIK BATES:

the reason why nobody laughed at BOO MUTHER FUCKER, was because i tend to not listen to ben during the podcast,my mind is so preocupied with the show that i tend to wander at my notes a lot. i did hear that comment from ben later on and laughed. kudos to ben....or possible a quaker oates chewy!

Datty Mike said...

Wooo! i am the accent king! :)

Bloody fireworks are going mad my way, its seems to get worse every year. Were turning into a nation of pyro's.

fuck me, its like a full-on mortar attack now!

To the pub!!

Japanese Pete said...

Good show, although I'm about seventy-four percent sure we used "Magic" on the podSaSt before as well. By the way, the line is "What's a matta, DYLAN? CIA got you pushing too many pencils?" I know this because a guy I worked with used to say that to me on the daily.

I wasn't quite sure what your point was about the various titles of episodes in which main characters die. There is something I was wondering about in that vein. I was in boot camp when the episode "Two for the Road" aired, so I don't know if this got much discussion. Could that title have been a sly reference to the highly publicized traffic incident involving the two actresses who were effectively written out by that episode. As in "Two [cast members are let go] for the [reason that they brought discredit to the project due to their shenanigans on the] Road." Silly, I know, but it got me thinking.

May I suggest, "Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Eurolars."

Seaman Good Times
I'm touching cloth.

Ralph- said...

i thought that government didnt sound right. shit, i wish that i had all the playlist of the sas, so i dont embarace myself again.

did you guys play last train to london by ELO? cause i thought about giving that a whirl.

i am a horrible person, that is why you are defending our country and i am not.

Kimberley from the T-dot said...

Oh man...I'm back from my drunken Hallowe'en daze. It was 3 days of "OMG, what the hell just happened?"

I can't wait to hear the podcast! I'm really nervous that Eko will be killed before the mini-pod of 6 episodes is done...I hope not!

Ok downloading...

Benjamin said...

Derrick Bates, I'm glad we could make you laugh, dude. I strive for efficiency, so to roll scary and sweary into one sentence is really a good policy, as far as I'm concerned.

Japanese Pete, your Eurolars title sounds great to me! And I think you're quite right about the possibility of at least an oblique reference to the DUI incident.

aimee in little rock said...

I finished my Lost puzzle (#2 of 4). Pictures to follow. I'm trying to figure out how to photograph the glow-in-the-dark shit on the back.

Datty Mike said...

A bit tricky but, if you've got a tripod (or can get hold of one), put your camera on it, turn the lights out, set it to a long exposure with no flash and snap away. :)

aimee in little rock said...

Yeah, Brian is an amateur photographer, so he has all that tricky stuff, and is taking care of it for me. I buried myself under a giant blanket to see what it was. It's lame. We've already seen it. But there seems to be a part that's got some new stuff, so I'll try to get the details of that.

Ryan said...

Would a black light help?

aimee in little rock said...

Well he tried what he could, and couldn't get it to take. I don't think a blacklight would work because the entire back of the puzzle is white. He's still playing around with it though.
