memphish said...

First!

memphish said...

What a tender, touching picture on the front. Apparently Paolo spends his 80 days growing facial hair.

memphish said...

What will Paolo and Nikki read on the plane?

Paolo - Chicken Soup for the Brazilian Soul (great can reading.)

Nikki - The National Enquirer

PalmerEldritch said...

Memphish went for the Hat Trick!

aimee in little rock said...

Paulo will be reading THIS

memphish said...

Have you got your copy of that Aimee? Is it on the list?

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

My prediction:

Paolo writes books under the pen name Taro Gomi.

memphish said...

Scarily enough Palmer, I've read that book or one very similar to it.

Holli

aimee in little rock said...

What does an apple have to do with it? Does an apple poo?

aimee in little rock said...

I like how they chose to illustrate a horse's ass on the cover, and not a picture of an entire horse.

t-dot kim said...

Woah...out of the blogpsot loop for the evening, a lot of reading to catch up on!

Can Nikki read? lol...we're all so mean.

memphish said...

That's why I picked the Enquirer Kim. All the pretty pictures. I could have gone People, but I figured that's too high brow for her.

Holli

memphish said...

Watch Nikki turn out to be a rocket scientist or brain surgeon. Yeah right!

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

Nikki will be a "theoretical geographer" and will explain to us how the Island can be in the Pacific, then over by Nigeria, and then in the Pacific again.

Paolo will be a Brazilian underwear model who keeps in shape with laxatives.

aimee in little rock said...

Nikki will be reading this: THIS

t-dot kim said...

LOL!

I've been trying to avoid spoilers this week, so I've been a little distant from the typical sites I visit. I haven't listened to the the Offical podcast either.

I did a quick glace of the Naveen Andrews article, but at the same time, I'd enjoy being paid to sit around set and work on my tan. (Unless, that prevents them from working on other acting projects...which probably it does becasue they're stuck in Hawaii--not LA) Catch-22, right?

As for the gay character, I hope it's not Dr. Arnst (sp?) simply because he was wearing an ascot. I think it's going to be Paolo.




Not that there's anything wrong with that ;)

stephsmith said...

My husband says if we were his employees, he'd fire us all.:)

aimee in little rock said...

I'd fire us all too. The crazy thing is, I'm like the hardest working person in this police department. Sad, huh?

PalmerEldritch said...

Kim! You're brilliant. If you're right about Paolo, then maybe he's Nikki's stylist? :)

Jon said...

look at that sweet sweet Paolo love-mullet.

t-dot kim said...

Hey,

I'm at home, so I shouldn't get fired!!! ;)

PalmerEldritch said...

Don't worry about getting fired. Your employer is too busy posting at a "The OC" blogspot.

aimee in little rock said...

Actually, I can hear that retarded boy singing that "ding fries are done" song coming from the Captain's office right now, so Palmer's way off.

PalmerEldritch said...

"Ding fries are done," eh? Luckily, I'm blissfully ignorant of that particular web phenomenon.

PalmerEldritch said...

Although, I'd love for a Daler Mehndi to make a comeback as an internet phenomenon. Who doesn't love watching this video with the speakers way up?

Anonymous said...

i predict...
- the promo shot is Nikki & Paulo being reunited on the beach after the crash. Pualo had spent the entire first part of the flight in line to use the bathroom where he waited, along with Bernard, for Nathan to finish his epic shit.

- Nikki is a voice-over actor. She narrates for children's shows. "That's an apple. People eat apples. They're very good for you."

- Paulo is a caddy. He got one look at the country club bathroom and new his life's calling.

- Really i think Sawyer realizes he has never seen them before, decides they might be others and spends the episode trying to find out who they are. Sun thinks Sawyer's theory means that they might have been the ones to kidnap her so she joins the hunt. this is this seasons' other 48 days but with a Hercule Poirot twist.

-Data and Spock make appearances dressed as Sherlock Holmes.

andrew.

gillian said...

I like the way you think Andrew.

Sadly, I can't contribute for two reasons:

1. I'm a complete blank when it comes to interesting theories and

2. I'm about to leave for school for a lovely exam. And then return from said school for an exam tomorrow. Does this mean I'll be skipping Lost to study? I. Think. Not!

PalmerEldritch said...

Gillian, the answers to questions 4, 8, and 15 are, repectively, 16, 23, and 42. Good luck.

Thanks to Aimee mentioning the "Ding Fries Are Done" song, everyone in my office is now considerably stupider. :)

Thanks, Aimee. Thaimee!

MB said...

I like that prediction that they are suspected of being others - that makes sense.

Going back to the previous thread - Steph - I laughed at your daughter's question because I have the same kind of moments as a parent. It kind blindsides you when something like that comes out of your kid's mouth - it's hilarious!

memphish said...

That video reminds me of the Macarena guys. Will there be dancing on the beach tonight?
That would be fun. So if Paolo does die tonight (I'm just speculating; I know nothing) who will be The Island's Next Big Shitter?

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

I would LOVE a Bollywood musical episode of LOST.

Well, for about two minutes. Then it might get annoying.

PalmerEldritch said...

By the way, do Nikki and DoubleFlush have last names yet?

aimee in little rock said...

Nikki Hotpants and Paulo Charmin (or Cottonelle depending on your regional dialect).

PalmerEldritch said...

Paolo = Mr. Whipple?

I'm getting so psyched for this ridiculously themed episode. Pikki!

/still hoping Nikki can escape Paolo

aimee in little rock said...

I just really hope there's poop.

It would be a shame to talk about it all week and have nothing to show for it tonight.

PalmerEldritch said...

Yeah, the Craptastic Sir Shitsalot has had all this hype. I'd hate for it not to pay off.

I'm still pulling for the opening segment to be Paolo taking a dump and start off with the eye opening and the pullback to reveal our island latrine. Nikki could totally be there looking the other way holding the TP behind her back for him.

What if he were illiterate and made her read the magazines to her.

Blue Chai Mandingo said...

ok guys. i've made it this far mostly spoiler free. i know that there were some big ones out there. thanks for keeping them on the dl. and i agree with jimmy. its nice to see that aimee has sobered up. ;) love the podcast girls. with aimee's sass and kim's class, you guys got it going on.

mb said...

It's Haiku time kids:

only hours to go
will paulo have a movement?
lost is the real shit

PalmerEldritch said...

five
seven
five

or so said my second grade teacher!

translation for Kim: "or so said my teacher for grade 2!"

does Kim say "Zed?"

stephsmith said...

God, y'all are funny today. Can I say LOL?
I went from Ding Fries are Done to Police are Gone. I highly recommend.
So, I tried out the 6 hour podcast. I could only handle an hour of their very detailed and speculative talk. They've improved alot since I listened before. Sometimes the whiny voices still come out. Who am I to talk about somebody's voice?
Oh, my husband doesn't think Anthony Cooper is Locke's dad. Maybe he was born of an immatulate conception.

stephsmith said...

I meant immaculate. I looked it up and still mispelled it. Damn it!

PalmerEldritch said...

a flatulent conception?

aimee in little rock said...

I wonder if Locke's batshit crazy mother will ever be seen again. If the island makes you crazy, maybe it could make her sane!

aimee in little rock said...

Paulo was flatulently conceived.

mb said...

Palmer -
oops - I guess 'hours' is 2 syllables isn't it... okay - replace with
'just hours to go'

PalmerEldritch said...

bump. set. spike!

i'll set 'em up, aimee. you shoot 'em down.

elias said...

the season one Lost Promo is the closest it will ever get to a musical. I dont see Nikki & Paolo anywhere though...

http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=bwbs9K0yy5g

elias said...

oops, here's the link:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bwbs9K0yy5g

mb said...

Wasn't the lady who said she was Locke's mom just some woman that Cooper paid off to say that? I'm at work so I'm going off memory. It would be a cool to have his mom appear though.

Jimmy said...

I'm looking forward to this. The thought of them being suspected as others is very, very cool.

She looks nice in that dress.

Loved Gina on AI last night.

There's my shallow post for the day.

Thanks to all those who liked the Lost Score segment. It made my day! I got really snowed under work wise so had basically 0 net time yesterday, plus my little one is sick so it was difficult to get involved. Will try more, but thanks all...

stephsmith said...

What's Your Sexy Brazilian Name?

http://www.blogthings.com/sexybraziliannamegenerator/

Adelita Menezes is mine.

elias said...

Bruno dos Santos

Seattle Jordan said...

My name is Danilo Assunção. Cool, I have no idea in hell how to pronounce that. lol.

Seeing as to how tonight's episode is our first real glimpse into Nikki & Paolo, how about everybody stakes their claim before the truth is known. Are you pro or anti Pikki or Naulo or whatever you want to call them? That way when they are proven to be either lame or non-lame, the people who were right all along can gloat and the people who were wrong can be laughed at. In a loving way that is. lol.

For the record, I have always liked them myself. Not sure why. Probably just because Nikki is hot. But I think it's cuz I like the randomness of their characters. I like how they bring something different to the group. A different vibe.

I'm saying that most people will like them much more after tonight. Hopefully if that's the case they will still be alive. ;)

Ok, so do you love em or hate em? Let the record show.

aimee in little rock said...

Her name was Emily Annabeth Locke, according to the medical records and stuff the private investigator found, so she is Locke's biological mother.

My name is Paola Oliveira!

aimee in little rock said...

I'm looking forward to seeing the episode, but I am staying out of the Pikki fan club.

From a strictly logical viewpoint, I don't believe anyone around here believes they are going to be around for very long, whether it turns out to be tonight, or whenever.

My emotional walls are going up; it doesn't want another "Libby incident" again. (get attached to a nice character only to BANG! lose them real fast.)

PalmerEldritch said...

Paola Oliveira? Ga-freaking-row. That's a heck of a name.

My Brazilian name changes every time I refresh. So, maybe I'll just call dibs on Diego de la Vega?

___

PalmerEldritch said...

Hmm... posting ruined the formatting on my ASCII 'Z'

Rat bastards.

mb said...

call me Rafael Matos

Aimee - so that WAS the woman that comes up to him in Deus Ex Machina (in the toy store)?

Seattle Jordan said...

Yeah, I hear ya on that Aimee.

Regarding the show's propensity to off new characters. Does anybody here watch The Office? Because they basically did the same thing as Lost did with the tailies.

They merged the Stamford branch with the Scranton branch at the beginning of season 3. The season isn't even over yet and only one person hasn't been fired, quit, or sent to anger management classes. And the one remaining employee, Karen, likely isn't long for Dunder-Miflin herself.

What is it with shows dumping all these new characters only to have them not even last the season?

memphish said...

You can call me Nathalia Verga. I like that. How hard is it to have your name changed legally?

Seattle Jordan said...

I don't think it's that hard. Some Bears fan changed his name to Peyton Manning after he lost a bet on the Super Bowl.

memphish said...

For the record, I am anti-Pikki which is not to say that I won't like tonight or what we learn via them tonight. Back in the summer when TPTB were saying new people were going to emerge from the background now that 3 main characters were missing from the beach didn't bother me in the least. I thought that was a logical thing. Problem is the way they've executed it has completely stunk and I feel badly for the actors who probably thought yeah we get to be on LOST only to be ragged on my the internet community for months now.

Nathalia

Obsidianrock said...

Just wanted to say I should now be referred to as "Bruno Rodrigues"

L8r

PalmerEldritch said...

Guess Rodrigo didn't know he was getting such a crappy role.

/no shame

PalmerEldritch said...

Travedera Verga. I must be Nathalia's cousin.

memphish said...

Well Palmer, I am from Alabama which makes me related to at least half the people there. I'll just add you to the list.

Nathalia

aimee in little rock said...

Travedera sounds badass.

MB - yeah, that's his mama in the toy store, parking lot, coffee shop, and jungle hallucination.

aimee in little rock said...

Ralph is still stuck in jury doodie selection right now, but wanted me to tell you all he said hi, and to have me generate a Brazilian name for him. He said the case they're selecting for is a murder case!

His name is...Eduardo Cavalcanti

memphish said...

Ralph could be the defendant in the murder trial with that name.

Nathalia

aimee in little rock said...

He said he wants to be in the jury, but his brother in law is a cop from the same town as the cops involved in the case.

Paola

Scott and Steve said...

Interesting "Office" comparison, Jordan.

I can't wait until Andy comes back from Anger Management.

-Craig

PalmerEldritch said...

Brazilian sexy names?! That's a LOT of them.

What's Kim's Brazilian name and can she speak in a Brazilian accent?!

aimee in little rock said...

Andy was my favorite of "the Others". I hope he comes back.

mb said...

Eduardo Cavalcanti - that's f-ing perfect. For some reason, Ralph looks like an Eduardo, don't ask me why

Seattle Jordan said...

Andy was awesome. Especially in his scenes with Dwight.

One of my favs:

http://youtube.com/watch?v=0vnZsaPUbKk

Seattle Jordan said...

More Andy awesomeness:

http://youtube.com/watch?v=70HBNN3xEn0

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sk98Gh7-cmU

I am now in a very funny mood after watching that. lol. Good stuff.

Seattle Jordan said...

Ok, just one more. LMAO.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=OKTSEE1d7JU

memphish said...

I guess Andy's "getting his LOST on" tonight. I know I am. Is it time yet?

Nathalia

Seattle Jordan said...

I forgot about when he said that. I remember cracking up big time. I am so getting my Lost on tonight.

Also when Dwight was walking into the warehouse with the rest of the office people and he looked at the camera and said, "This is like on Lost when they met the others." lol. Pure awesomeness.

PalmerEldritch said...

It does pretty much blow that we have to wait until 10pm for LOST. Makes the whole night drag on. Blah!

t-dot kim said...

Ok...I just came home from taking my dog, Tiger Woods, for a walk and I kid you NOT...there was this little lap doggie taking a poop, and his owner said "Good boy, Paolo" I swear, I nearly shat myself laughing so much.

I pretty much ran home so I could post this. LOL!!!! jk!

Seattle Jordan said...

Ok, this is a must watch. A Lost version of The Office.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wd2K_2DTaP8

And this one isn't bad either:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3a-syJVjjT8

People have so much time on their hands. As do I for looking all this stuff up. ha.

t-dot kim said...

;)

In all honesty, the dog's name could have been anything, but I know I heard Paolo!

PalmerEldritch said...

Kim's story wins the thread.

/Puppy Paolo!

Seattle Jordan said...

It's the universe course correcting itself. Crazy stuff. ha.

aimee in little rock said...

Oh my gosh Kim, that is freaking awesome.

memphish said...

Do you think puppy Paolo can get a guest starring role on LOST next season?

stephsmith said...

It's Taco Night here.
Do y'all want to know a new Office spoiler? Dwight goes at Jim with what looks like a box cutter or knife. I posted the youtube video in TLIs comments.

Benjamin said...

Is Ralph at Jury Duty a second day! His texts today have not mentioned that. What a stellar citizen.

The Office Others were straight up eliminated one after the other like Willy Wonka kids. Guess Karen gets the Everlasting Gobstopper.

I'm looking forward the the Pikki expose tonight. I'm willing to bet that Xerxes is going to be dropping some Persians off at the pool at least once in tonight's episode. Anyone want to put money, honor, or embarassment on that?

- Grande Souza

mb said...

OMG kim - just read the dog story - that's pretty amazing!

elias said...

some Andy Bernard highlights:

acapella ringtone

his grenade handshake

coming up with "Shruted"

PalmerEldritch said...

Ben, I believe the term is "dropping off some Persians at the Hot Gates."

PIKKI TONIGHT! HELL YEAH!

stephsmith said...

I said Dwight but meant uh Roy. Roy goes at Jim with a box cutter.

PalmerEldritch said...

Roy seems to be a nice balanced individual.

Big Willie Style said...

Andy: "It's like we're touring Willy Wonka's chocolate factory and dropping off one by one. Well guess what? I'm not falling in a chocolate river."

I wish Nikki or Paulo would say something like that tonight.

memphish said...

Well, it was our pal JJ Abrams who left poor Roy in a desperate state.

mb said...

I wish I could post photos here - but I made something for Kim in my photos on my myspace page

Everyone...please partake...

http://www.myspace.com/86718687 (click on my pics section)

I'm not photo-sharing savvy - if anyone has a better way for me to share this please tell me

I wouldn't mind banging Kiele Sanchez said...

Well Roy did say he was going to kill Jim Halpert. Guess he wasn't speaking figuratively.

mb said...

Kim and Aimee - I also emailed the pic to the TLI g-mail account. hope it comes thru

Seattle Jordan said...

The fact that many of you guys on this blogspot appreciate The Office makes me like it even more.

Smart witty Lost fans with good senses of humor? On the internet? I didn't think it was possible.

memphish said...

mb, I think a lot of people put their photos in photobucket or flickr. Aimee used an AOL thing the other day for her OKC pictures. I just post things in my blog and then copy them as my avi.

Holli (oops Nathalia)

aimee in little rock said...

I use photobucket to post my photos (its free!).

That Office promo was cool.

It was a crime of passion, not a disgruntled employee. All the employees here are gruntled.

Paola

Mike Campbell said...

I just bought the new Command and Conquer video game (sorry i am a geek) and Josh Halloway is in it. I started playing and they showed a video with him in it and almost died of laughter. I am sorry if this has been brought up before but oh man maybe there is a video of him on you tube in it. its great.

Mike Campbell said...

http://youtube.com/watch?v=Nk8Xp2FOjB8

1 minute and 50 seconds to see the glory, and huge gun. Sorry i think this wicked funny.

Benjamin said...

I'm looking forward to new Office episodes, but not too stoked to see spoilers running rampant in here! Now I'm going to be very nervous for the Large Tuna. Oh, and NBC, if you ever stop by this blogspot, maybe you should make an Andy A Capella Rockin' Robin ringtone for my mobile telephone. GET ON IT.

aimee in little rock said...

I'd like to flank him on his next mission!

(Watch the Command & Conquer video to get the reference)

Paola

Seattle Jordan said...

check out this holloway c&c vid. Includes interview and behind the scenes crap.

PalmerEldritch said...

Is that a Cylon in C&C3?

/i'd helfer

mb said...

Aimee - i think you were #108!

PalmerEldritch said...

give us a belated KABLAMO, paola.

Mike Campbell said...

and the girl who plays cameron on house is also in the game. sorry i will stop talking about it

aimee in little rock said...

Belated KABLAMO

- Paola

PalmerEldritch said...

i can't freakin' stand Cameron on House. i have at least one outburst each episode which basically consists of "pop that bitch in the mouth!"

/really grinds my gears

PalmerEldritch said...

Paola, thanks for making everything right in the world again.

Obsidianrock said...

I just got a quick message for Ralph & Ben. In the last Dharmalars podcast they were asking what Locke was watching by his lonesome self in his apartment in "The Man from Tallahassee" when you can hear something about a cobra. If you go to thetailsection.com, DocArzt reveals that it was actually tonights episode "Expose". Just thought you would like to know

stephsmith said...

Ben, I apologize for the Office spoiler. I didn't realize it was the kinda show that people wanted to be surprised about. I will be more sensitive to other's choice of lifestyle.

elias said...

Lost spoilers are a huge thing (that's what she said)

goofball said...

1 down 1 to go
