Dharmalars: Exposé

On this very special episode of the Dharmalars, Ben and Ralph debate the awesomeness of 3x14 Exposé! Jimmy discusses some "HOT" music and we get the most calls on the You All Everybody segment to date.
We also pay a special tribute to Producer Ryan, who will be giggling for the last time on the Dharmalars. He will be missed. Thanks Ryan...Thyan!

Nice work Ryan, we'll miss your giggling and superb producing. Looking forward to listening to the podcast

ralph-, I think we share the same brain.

memphish said...

Ralph,

Thanks for nothing. Sawyer was repeating it back to Nikki. That's what she said when he wouldn't give her a gun.

Good podcasts guys.

Still listening.

aimee in little rock said...

Why does it look like Ben is stroking that microphone?

Listening right now guys; good luck in Catalina Ryan, tell Jeff he better bring his A-game, cause it'll take a lot to fill those giant giggly shoes of yours!

Benjamin said...

Why? Because, baby, you can't just walk up to a microphone and start pouring a podcast into her. You gotta warm her up a little. You gotta make sure she's sympatico with you. And then when she's all loosey-goosey and ready to go...YOU PODCAST HER BRAINS OUT.

Ralph said...

what the "F" are you doing up so early ben? wow. you must be out catching worms.

Thanks Holli, that makes perfect sense now.

Aimee, If jeff does come on board, he will bring more than an A game.

Steph, i think that you may be hogging all the brain, cause i'm sure using way less than half. by the way, why do we share the same brain? is it because we both have an ifinity for Day 57?

bn in stockholm said...

Great job guys, this was a really funny podcast.

Dudes! Nina and Pablo are dead. This has been confirmed, I think.

-long time listener, first time poster.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Those listener calls killed me. LMAO at the dude who said he "did it" to the Lost soundtrack. hahaha.

Great show once again y'all.

And all I can say is the new producer better have one hell of a giggle.

memphish said...

What's better than an A Game? A Negative Z game? Do you go back to zero and then go backwards?

BTW, one of my unique talents is I can sing the alphabet backwards.

Ralph, Having not had all 4 of my cups of coffee yet I forgot to add that Sawyer was also speaking for all the non-Dharmalars in the LOST world and telling Pikki "thanks for nothing."

Here's a question for the next episode. If Juliet and Kate show back up wherever Jack is and Juliet's face is all bashed in, he's going to be a Nancy-boy and get mad at Kate about that isn't he? Just have sex with the prostitue and be happy the younger one took out the older one because of you Coconut-head.

Holli

aimee in little rock said...

Ben, it looks like your gripping that mic pretty tight though, which conflicts with your gentle stroking explanation. You can't violently force the mic into submission, that's just rude. Unless the mic is kinky and likes it rough.

By the way, as far as giggles are concerned, I think the only one who can come close in comparison to the almighty Ryan would be Dre. I love that dude's calls.

aimee in little rock said...

Oh, and I guess whoever called you the Dharmafarts several threads ago has the same psychic powers as Desmond.

PalmerEldritch said...

hey, producer ryan. sorry to see you go. obviously, i enjoyed both your production skills and your giggles. otherwise, i wouldn't have written a haiku to defend you against anonymous. it looks like i didn't get my audio comment in to ralph on time but i hope he gets a copy to you, ryan. thanks for everything. stay in touch here on the blogspot and respect the island or locke will eat your leftovers.

Colin said...

Ryan, awesome producing. You'll be missed

And guys, they haven't missed Christmas yet. Expose takes place on December 11, 2004.

Timeline

memphish said...

There's a funny discussion of Christmas on the Island in the current Official Lost Podcast. It involves a Santa rescue attempt.

Holli

Jordan from the 206 said...

Ralph, if you consider yourself any bit of a Steve Martin fan, you have to see The Jerk. That movie has some great quotes.

Anonymous said...

the drunk guy calling in trying to add rolph to his myspace was funny.

Casey D said...

ryan, you're the best in the biz man

and honestly, who hasn't "done it" to the lost score?

elias said...

wasn't it "wet bra can bend my bar" ?

Great podcast again. Loved the Dirty Rotten Scoundrels quote.

DenAss said...

Jordan, you're so right about The Jerk. I love the field sobriety test he has to do.

stephsmith said...

Day 57, is that when we where introduced to the new sheriff? No, that's not it. You always say exactly what I think. Always.

Do you think non-blogspotters are feeling alienated? Are we getting preferential treatment?

Dre needs his own podcast. I'd subscribe in a heartbeat.

Colin said...

Day 57 is Nikki in a bra with Dr. Arzt. Real classy stuff.

Jordan from the 206 said...

I want a spin-off of Day 57. I'd probably buy the dvd.

I don't know about "doing it" to the lost score. I'm more of a Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack kinda guy.

Great quote from The Jerk:
"HE HATES THESE CANS!"
Also classic:
"You sir, are talking to a n***er!"

stephsmith said...

A couple of things I can actually speak on with experience. Maybe TMI.
I believe it was a bathing suit top and not a bra.
I think you would blame Squishyface's irritability on hormonal changes due to her postpartum status.

MB said...

Steph - I just noticed and actually read your blogger pic - I love it! I imagine Hurley would be front row for this event if he could be.

Listening to the dharmalars now -
You know I never realized that Isla Nublar (Jurassic Park) could have been in the Pacific or the Carribean. I don't think that movie ever makes clear which coast the island is off of. Someone correct me if that's wrong.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Colin said...

Well, Steph, I'd say you would know better than I would on whether it's a bra or bathing suit, as you're a woman, and I'm not.

stephsmith said...

The narrative begins by slowly tying together a series of incidents involving strange animal attacks in Costa Rica. After paleontologist Alan Grant and his paleobotanist graduate student Ellie Sattler enter the sequence of queried experts they are abruptly whisked off by billionaire John Hammond (founder and CEO of International Genetic Technologies) for a weekend visit to a "zoological preserve" he has established on an island 120 miles off the west coast of Costa Rica.

MB said...

Dayum Steph - you're the bomb! Thanks!

stephsmith said...

Am I the only human on earth that fell asleep while watching Jurassic Park?

I thought so.

Wesh said...

Hello. i'm wesh. been away for a bit. i'm back now. can't even wait to check out kimandaimee and dharmalars! Missed you guys n girls so much!
Good to be back! Talk to yall soon!
Have some lost catching up to do.

greeetz

Jordan from the 206 said...

Working on Saturday blows. Ugh.

MB said...

I fell asleep watching J.Park the last time I watched it - so you're not alone Steph. I always fall asleep watching movies now - (sigh) life is different now :)

MB said...

Welcome back Wesh!

PalmerEldritch said...

aimee, i just got back from TMNT (aka the Granite State's greatest contribution to humanity). thanks for recommending it. i had an awesome time watching it. three stigmata up!

ben, that reference is for you.

producer ryan said...

Thank you all for the well wishes. I was overwhelmed by all the phone calls, comments, and postings. Erin and I have been running around all day, and this has been my first chance to post anything. Thank you all very, very much.

Ralph, Ben and I have the feeling that I will never be totally gone from the show. Participation may be limited for the rest of the season as I won't have internet over there for a few months (we just got running water on the island, so we've got that going for us).

I'll see y'all on the boards, MySpace, and the DharmaLine! Thanks again.

Welcome back, Wesh!

memphish said...

Those are the craziest You All Everybody calls. The repeated pleas for drunk calls finally pays off just like Nikki and Paolo pay off.

Kim, just realized Paolo's "Is it the Others?" line is even more lame now after he came face to door with Ben and Juliet and didn't tell anyone.

Holli

Colin said...

Ryan, you'll never be gone from this podcast. You will always be in our hearts, letting us know when to laugh at Ralph and Ben's obscure nerd references.

stephsmith said...

Ben, Juliette's hair must be naturally curly (theatre hair) and she uses the technology of a blowdryer, staightening iron, or perm to get Othersville hair.
Thinking about it more, Locke's line about nothing stays buried on the island may mean the crap is about to hit the fan.
Jordan from the 206, I concur.

ralf, what the fuck is your last name, so i can fuckin add you to my myspace.

Casey D said...

my favorite jerk quote

New Accounts Bank Manager: I will need two pieces of identification.

Navin R. Johnson: Ah yes. I have my temporary driver's license - and - my astronaut application form... I didn't pass that though, I failed everything but the date of birth.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Navin R. Johnson: Now be totally honest. You do have a boyfriend don't you.

Marie: Kind of

Navin R. Johnson: I know this is our first date but do you think the next time you make love to your boyfriend you could think of me?

Marie: Well I haven't made love to him yet.

Navin R. Johnson: That's too bad. Do you think its possible that someday you could make love with me and think of him?

Marie: Who knows maybe you and he could make love and you could think of me.

Navin R. Johnson: I'd be happy to be in there somewhere.

PalmerEldritch said...

Navin R. Johnson: My story? Okay. It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child.

elias said...

yep. that last one cracked me up the most.

I still think Planes, Trains... is the pinnacle of comedy:

"You know everything's not an anecdote. You have to discriminate!"

Anonymous said...

the callers segment is the best of any podcast out tehre! that drunk guy who are mad at rawlf for not being his myspace friend was fucking halarious. and the man who cried during lost and then banged a chick to the lost songs, hahaha! and dr dre is so goood. he should have his own podcast. i thinkk everybody on this board shoudl call and drunk massage rawlf and bend. and what si this movie quote board? jees. dis is lost bitches! leave your nerdy movies at the door. i dont even know what movie the jerk is. secrest out.

DenAss said...

Nice command of the language there, Anon. Next time go ahead and throw a few random punctuation marks at the end of your message, and I'll try to figure out where they should have been used throughout the body of the message.

Ryan - Dude, lots of others have said it, and I'd like to concur: We're gonna miss you on the Dharmalars podcast. Maybe you could put a small mp3 sample of your laugh online so we'll have that to remember you by.

Here's another one of my favorites from The Jerk:
"First I get my name in the phone book and now I'm on your ass. You know, I'll bet more people see that than the phone book. "

And I totally spaced out earlier when I mentioned a sobriety test that Steve Martin had to do. That was from "The Man with Two Brains" WHOOPS! Another awesome movie, no doubt. But not the subject of the conversation.

Colin, I was married on Dec 11, 2004 - the same day as Expose.

Wesh - WELCOME HOME BROTHER!

Colin said...

Holy shit, Aimee. That's crazy.

Now, whenever it's your anniversary, you'll think about Paulo and Nikki being buried alive.

Scott and Steve said...

I thought Expose took place on Dec. 9?

Colin said...

Not according to Lostpedia's Timeline.

That's based on the labels from each Expose flashback (... Days Ago), I assume.

stephsmith said...

The Tudors tonight on Showtime. Ladies set your DVRs.

Jimmy said...

I've miseed all ther fun! Had a week of my little ones birthday party.

I haven't actually listened to our episoide yet. This is how slammed my life has become!

Everyone seems chipper though :)

PalmerEldritch said...

Men, we are three days away from the Rumble in the Jungle.

(Kate + Juliet + handcuffs + rain + smackdown) * DharmaWhippedTopping = palmer's birthday gift from the LOST writers

/woot!

aimee in little rock said...

I predict I'll be divorced on the day of the series finale.

PalmerEldritch said...

Well, Aimee, that's an awkward post to follow.

But I'll bite. What happens to you if there's a LOST movie or spinoff series?

Colin said...

Haha. If there's a movie/spinoff Aimee gets to find a new husband to use over the course of that experience. It'll keep things fresh, I'm sure.

Of course, if it's a movie, you'll have a new husband for around two hours. Give a take a few minutes.

aimee in little rock said...

The day we have a Lost movie or spinoff series will be a sign of the end of the world. Marriages will no longer matter.

PalmerEldritch said...

And that, Aimee, is why we must KABLAMO every 108th post of a thread.

Saving the world, brothah.

PalmerEldritch said...

oh, and kim, if you want to be the 69th poster, you'd better hurry on over.

Hey guys my name's Steve. Apperantly I had a little too much to drink last Sunday while watching the Georgetown UNC game. I thought it would be in my best interest to make my "You All Everybody" debut. I vaguely remembered making this call when I woke up Monday morning but my incoherent ramblings I just heard on the podcast confirmed it.
Hope you all enjoyed my drunkeness

Anonymous said...

BTW, I'm the guy who rambled on about Jack spiking the football and then called back a minute later to complain that I didn't know Ralph's last name

PalmerEldritch said...

Thank you, Steve, for your drunkness. It was enjoyed by all us listeners.

/66

stephsmith said...

Welcome Steve. Jack Daniels IS awesome.

Colin said...

I can feel that 69 getting closer.

memphish said...

I'll bite on 69. At Target today I asked a guy who works there where the Easter stuff was. He said there wasn't any, and I bit the April Fools Joke completely. He saw me again and asked what else I needed and I said my husband. He replied they don't stock those anymore because they were always being returned. Damaged goods I guess.

Holli

Wesh said...

Thanks Aimee, glad to be home.
Allready watched almost all lost episodes, only the last two left and listened and listened to the respective podcasts too. Awesome stuff indeed!
Man, there even was one with Dylan in it?! How awesome was that podcast! Thanks for the shout-outs too.
At some point you asked at what time Lost is on down here in Belgium:
*8pm (gmt+1) on pay tv and then they repeat it thruout the week. They're at episode 9 though. And season 3 hasnt even begun on cable. So yeah, basicly i'm like Tim, i watch it a day after yall. I borrow them eps from a 'friend on the net'. *wink wink*

Anyways, gonna watch lost now. Man from Tallahasee, here i come.
Havent even scrolled down on the blogspot, cause i'm sure i'll see some spoily screencaps :D I allready see a glance of paulo and niki's forehead, as if they're sunbathing or something. i'm ignoring it though and blocking it from my memory.

Man, what a rant. Sorry for that. Been away for a while so had to make up for it.
Glad to see yall again, and talk to yall soon.

bye.

Colin said...

Memphish- I bet you will bite on 69. (I don't really know what that means.)

Wesh- Man From Tallahasee is a good 'un. And I also get the episodes from "a internet friend" so I can watch them whenever I want. (I am in America, though, not Belgium.)

Wesh said...

He a mighty good friend, our pal from the Net ^__-
I do intend to catch the dvd's though for the cool extras and supererior quality ofcourse.

OMG! It seriously was a good 'un indeed!! Fokking awesome!! I'm out of breath! Locke's reveal was too cool, totally not lame in my eyes. w000t on that one! And the acting thru out this ep was just gold. Especially liked how locke kept massaging his arms and moving them slowlike, just like he really had been hanging there with his hands cuffed above his head. And a bunch of other crazy nice stuff. Top 5 for sure.

And omg, does ben have the creepiest eyes or what? They even looked digitally enhanced or whatever. Check out the screenie!

Wesh said...

Good bye Ryan, good day to you sir and best of luck on your island! The background giggles will be missed. Not to mention the awesome producing!
dharmalars's gonna sound like crap now!
lol jk, i'm sure it'll still rock.

So rock on.
rockers.

B. Linus said...

I Love Jack Daniels. it is good. i heard that micheal and walt will make an apperance in the finale.

B. Linus said...

to bad its april fools day though.

Jimmy said...

Did the Dharmalarts feed get uploaded to the LPN? Just noticed Cliff seems to be all over it :)

B. Linus said...

Im new to all this lost community stuff, and i was just wondering if anyone could tell me what day to look for the next lost iniative podcast. i love those girls.

Wesh said...

btw: has this and this russian been translated by someone and is does it mean something important?

aimee in little rock said...

Kim usually gets the Lost Initiative episodes up Sunday night or Monday morning!

B. Linus said...

thanks aimee. love the show. can't wait to listen. keep up the good work. and all other applicable cliches.

Colin said...

Wesh- it has been translated. You can see it here.

It doesn't seem to be very important, but you can judge for yourself.

Kim,

We had Aimee doing drunk podcasting, why not try your hand at some drunken podcast editing. What's the worst that could happen?

Jordan from the 206 said...

Take your time Kim. You can't rush magic. ;) Look forward to listening.

t-dot kim said...

D,

You'll get a 3 hour discussion of Aimee and I going over all the disgusting, foolish, and crazy things we did during the week...then a 2 hour long somewhat interesting podcast about LOST.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Sounds awesome! Can't wait.

In the mean time, I give you American politicians hard at work.

MC Rove

PalmerEldritch said...

Kim and Aimee, you two do enough "disgusting, foolish, and crazy things" each week to merit three hours of dedicated discussion? Sweet!

aimee in little rock said...

As disgusting, foolish, and crazy as we may be, neither of us has ever dropped an air biscuit while laughing.

I love that Ryan will always be remembered as the giggling producer, but I love even more that he had such a memorable moment in his final recording, while laughing.

PalmerEldritch said...

Not yet, Aimee. But there are still 8 episodes of LOST this season.

PalmerEldritch said...

Hey, what's the name of this next episode? Is it a Kate episode?

Will there be DHARMA whipped topping? Please?

Wesh said...

Thx for that link colin! I guess it's not of major importance either. Still it's nice to see the Lost community was all over it.

LOL i had also noticed the fake horse immediatly. Especially the first look we get, when it's gazing to the left without even moving a little :) Oh well, still a very nice replica; cause when they close up to it, it still looked real.

Steph: colin's link should help. Here's a very brief tutorial though (all u need 4 blogspot i guess):
*link:<.a href="your_link_here">text_to_link<./a>
*bold: <.b>bold_text<./b>
*italic: <.i>bold_text<./i>

You should leave all those dots out of the tags.

Exposé was fun! :) "Razzle Dazzle" was hilarious! Do people really say that shit?
Niki was teh hawtness! I was surprised Arzt didnt explode right there on the spot. I guess he went for a delayed explosion.
Dunno what to expect for Kate's episode. Watched the preview (which i normally don't) and it didnt look that exciting (apart from the girl fight in the rain).
We'll see.

Wesh said...

oh yeah, steph, that pic of that lil monkey: a striking resemblance indeed! :D
Now i'll always be LOLing when i see Ben, instead of crying in fear.

aimee in little rock said...

Palmer, this week's Kate episode is titled "Left Behind".

PalmerEldritch said...

"Left Behind?"

Hmmm... My new theory as to Wednesday's Birthday episode of LOST, after the Juliet/Kate smackdown in the DHARMA whipped topping, Kate will need a massage from Juliet because she will have pulled a muscle in her left behind.

aimee in little rock said...

That would be the ultimate birthday gift, wouldn't it?

PalmerEldritch said...

throw in some robots and some explosions and we have ratings gold.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Looks like you guys are getting close to 108, so I'll help out.

I'm fearful that the Kate on Juliette action is going to be a bit of a let down for us guys. The commercial probably showed it all. Damn those ABC ad wizards!

But we can dream, right?

aimee in little rock said...

Do you think that because we all expect Kate to kick some Juliet ass that it'll end up the other way around and Juliet will be the one bringing the pain?

PalmerEldritch said...

Will Juliet have Ethan's fabled "Other-Strength" that was never explained? The same "Other-Strength" that may have displayed while leisurely climbing to that cliff with an out of breath Sawyer?

/106, get your Kablamonators ready

memphish said...

Juliet did knock a wet Jack out. Maybe she fights best when she's wet.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

Holli, you have a way with words.

KABLAMO!!!

memphish said...

Palmer, Just helping create a Happy Birthday to you!

Holli

aimee in little rock said...

I wonder if it will end up being a "man" style fight, where all they do is punch each other and stuff, or if they'll go all in with the "chick" style fight, and have the clawing, hair pulling, and eventually somewhere, a ripped shirt.

PalmerEldritch said...

Brilliant!

PalmerEldritch said...

Although, it would be pretty badass to have a mixed martial arts fight... but not very visually appealing.

Wesh said...

As long as it ends with a kiss and make up, wesh'll be happy.

aimee in little rock said...

I'm sure at one point, each of them will have their turn straddling the other on the ground.

PalmerEldritch said...

The audience of such a scene.

Wesh said...

LOL! :D
If a thought bubble would float above his head, what would it say?

PalmerEldritch said...

"Smoke Munster? I hardly even know her!"

stephsmith said...

I find it hard to belive that Juliet throws a football like such a girl but can knock out Jack with one punch.
The Others have equiptment to develop photographs. Ben has pics of Alex at different ages on his walls.
Did anyone else think about :thiswhile watching Expose?

stephsmith said...

Thanks for your help guys. This is the closest I've gotten.

stephsmith said...

equipment

aimee in little rock said...

Steph, I thought about the photographs too and had written that in my notes, but decided not to bring it up. I figured that for an island and organization as well equipped as they are, it would not be difficult for them to acquire the materials needed for developing photographs in their own darkroom or whatever.

They almost might have just used Wal-Mart's online photo service.

PalmerEldritch said...

Could have been developed at Jack (Glatfelter)'s fabled SuperWalmart on the other side of the Island.

PalmerEldritch said...

Ah, VIP. QUALITY writing there.

At least the redhead and the computer nerd girl were cute.

stephsmith said...

Sawyer said, "Yeah, me and Nikki went at it this morning." Did anyone else think he was talking about sex at first?

PalmerEldritch said...

Not sure about that Steph. But I'm sure a lot of people were thinking about that subject during "Corvette's" introduction.

stephsmith said...

Rachael Ray should go back to her previous hair color.

aimee in little rock said...

Steph, I can tell you're having fun using that HTML now!

PalmerEldritch said...

Rachael Ray should go back to five years ago when she wasn't so demonic looking.

stephsmith said...

Aimee, I checked out the VHS tape of Having Fun With HTML from the library. The host's 1990-style hair and clothes were too distracting.

PalmerEldritch said...

and while we're talking about Rachael Ray, someone post a link to Nigella. ;)

Jimmy said...

Did someone say "Nigella"

(Suddenly wakes up!)

memphish said...

For Palmer: NL

aimee in little rock said...

I finished reading The Fountainhead yesterday and Evil Under the Sun too. I'm just about done with Animal Farm (I've read it already, but it's so short, I thought a refresher wouldn't hurt).

Jordan from the 206 said...

Mmmmmmm

PalmerEldritch said...

thank goodness that she doesn't have a coconut head or a lack of shoulders.

any chance of some postation of the podcast before 1pm eastern? methinks i'll be home for lunch. :)

memphish said...

Aimee you are Evelyn Wood. I'm plodding through a non-Lost related book that's been on my shelf for over a year. And by non-Lost related, I mean overtly because I can tie pretty much anything into LOST.

Holli

Jordan from the 206 said...

Yeah, I'm jealous of Aimee too. I seem to have ADD when I read. Can't concentrate worth shit. The only time I've ever been able to read with any sticktoitiveness was when I backpacked through Europe. I was on trains so much that I had no choice.

Aimee, you talking about books sounds like me talking about dvd's. I'm all like, "Yeah, I just got finished with Blood Diamond. Hope to get through Babel by tomorrow." hahaha.

I started reading Catch 22 about a year ago. It's been sitting on my shelf with a bookmark about 50 pages in. Every now and then I notice it and think, "I should start reading that again." Then before that thought is even done, I'm watching something on tv.

elias said...

Aimee - what did you think of Poirot? I always thought it was funny that an arrogant Belgian detective was one of the most famous characters in English Literature.

I am re-reading and highly recommend Le Carre's A Perfect Spy, although I doubt it will ever feature in Lost.

aimee in little rock said...

I wish I would've brought Catch 22 to work with me, so I can start it as soon as I'm done with Animal Farm. I feel naked without an unread book nearby.

aimee in little rock said...

Elias, I've only read one other Agatha Christie book which was And Then There Were None. It also took me only a few hours to finish, and was completely awesome. I love trying to play "whodunit" in my head, because at the end, I'm always wrong!

I'd like to start reading more of hers when I have the time. I just have to get caught up with Dr. Jack's stupid bookshelf from the season premiere episode. I have like, 10 books to read from that one episode, and now all the new episodes keep piling more on me.

PalmerEldritch said...

Aimee, I'm not sure whether to be impressed or frightened.

Them's a lot of book readin'!

Jordan from the 206 said...

And Then There Were None. Does that one have something to do with the 10 little indians? Not sure exactly why as I never read the book, but that came to mind. Maybe I saw a film or play a long time ago.

When I was in London a couple years back I saw The Mousetrap, which is an Agatha Christie play. It's been running there for 60 years or something. It was pretty good.

aimee in little rock said...

45 out of 66 is my running total so far. That doesn't sound as good as I thought it would. I actually have more than I thought I did. 18 are from the season premiere; the other 3 are from upcoming episodes. Fucking Jack and his stupid fancy doctor's office bookshelf.

aimee in little rock said...

Yes, Jordan, I believe Ten Little Indians was the original title also.

Benjamin said...

Too many posts! I can't synthesize it all and reply as I should, so I'll focus on the current discussion. Catch-22 is one of my all time favorite books. Top ten at the least.

Everyone at work got me into George RR Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series which, despite the midget porn and whatnot, is pretty damned engaging. Too bad that at 4 or 5 books we're hitting around six thousand pages. Ugh...

PalmerEldritch said...

That and Philip K. Dick are the only non-comic book collections that I read nowadays.

Aimee needs to read "Watchmen" by Alan Moore. It's a fact.

PalmerEldritch said...

oh! and bruce campbell. gotta read bruce campbell.

aimee in little rock said...

I've read Bruce Campbell!

MB said...

Holy mother of whipped topping! 148 posts! We are quite the prolific bunch. This is what happens when I stay away for 24 hrs. doing taxes - ugh! Let me continue the countdown to the smackdown - t-minus 59hrs, 17mins.

I agree with Jordan that it's very possible that the we already saw the fight in the preview, but dreaming is indeed as fun as the event itself.

PalmerEldritch said...

on my way home for lunch, "Cool Whip" by Ben Folds came on the radio and I couldn't help but think of some DHARMA whipped topping.

PalmerEldritch said...

oh, aimee, which book did you read? "If Chins Could Kill" or "Make Love the Bruce Campbell Way?" both?!

aimee in little rock said...

Make Love. I've yet to find Chins, but I look for it every time I go to B & N. I'm too lazy to order it online I guess.

PalmerEldritch said...

thanks to a buddy, i have an autographed copy of Chins. brings a tear of joy to my eye.

have you seen Bubba Hotep?

Benjamin said...

It's on my coffee table, Aimee. Wish I could loan it to you. :(

And Ralph's borrowing Watchmen which I also wish I could loan to you. I'm really letting you down today.

aimee in little rock said...

I can't even talk to you right now Ben. Just go away.

PalmerEldritch said...

time to mark ben's ass with that cadbury creme egg symbol, aimee.

i think you'll like the branding, ben. it hurts so good.

Ralph said...

bubba ho tep is awesome!

I am only on page 3 of watchmen. i better finish it before Madman Atomic Comics starts up on Wednesday!!!

sorry if i havent been around, but i am trying to get my new computer up and going. there is so much on my old computer that needs to be updated on this one, such as thing like passwords and such.

stephsmith said...

I've done a lot of googling in the past few minutes. Agatha Christie, I have heard of her. One of the few books I have read is one of hers. I can't remember which. I do remember I loved it and intended to read more. I wish I liked to read. I also wish I liked fish.
Jordan, I get distracted too.

memphish said...

Kim,

Podcast update? Can you have it up by 5:30 EDT so that I can listen while making dinner? Nothing like some TLI banter to while away the chopping. Off to an Easter Egg hunt! Unfortunately, it's eggs, not the LOST kind.

Ralph- said...

i am going to make burgers tonight.

stephsmith said...

I've put off the treadmill waiting on TLI. Not really. I just can't get motivated.
That's a nice picture of the Dharmalars. They look like such nice boys.

t-dot kim said...

I'm adding music...that's all I have left to do.

I don't have an ETA, but....soon?

;)

t-dot kim said...

Sorry Holli, not by 5:30 :( I'm technically on "vacation" this week...so I've been running around doing stuff in the city all morning

PalmerEldritch said...

ralph, i am going to one up you in the culinary showdown. you're making burgers but i'm making RAMEN noodles.

/w00t!

elias said...

I can't believe Bruce "Evil Dead" Campbell writes books. I gotta read some of them! just saw his cameo in Darkman.

it's 22:08 here in London and I'm just about to pour a stiff drink and listen to the UK Lost Initiative, even though it sucks smurfs.

MB said...

Kim,
thanks for making like Loverboy and Working on the Weekend (podcasting on the weekend) so we can all continue to inject our TLI addiction. Lovin' Every Minute of it.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Just got back from the doctor. I get to have surgery, yay! (sarcasm off)

What the hell are the odds? My last post was about how I don't read too many books, and then you guys start talking about Bruce Campbell. Ha! I actually read, "If Chins Could Kill." Pretty interesting stuff. He basically tells the story of how he got into show business. He goes into real detail about the original Evil Dead. That was pretty cool. Bruce is very candid and doesn't hold back too much. I recommend it to any fans of his or cinema.

Aimee, If you'd like, you can have my copy. It's not like I'm ever going to read it again. In fact, it would be my pleasure to give it a much better home.

stephsmith said...

Spaghetti is the plural form of the Italian word spaghetto, which is a diminutive of "spago," meaning "thin string" or "twine". The word "spaghetti" can be literally translated as "little strings." A common theory is that Marco Polo brought the noodles back with him from China, but this is not true.

The Smith's are having spaghetti tonight.

memphish said...

Jordan, it's too bad you aren't in the 901, my hubby could do your surgery.

Holli

Wesh said...

Good luck with the surgery Jordan!

Bon a petit, Smith's!

aimee in little rock said...

Jordan, you are apparently a much better friend than that inconsiderate bastard named Ben who lends all his cool shit to everyone but me. I would love to read the first book by Bruce "Don't call me me Ash" Campbell. If you seriously don't want it, I'll take it & even paypal you for it. Send me an email!

aimee in little rock said...

And whatever you're having surgery for, I hope it's not too serious. I'll cross my fingers that it's like tonsils or a molectomy or something.

memphish said...

Molectomy is definitely the proper technical term.

MB said...

Steph,
I think our family is having something called "pizza" which derives from the Italian word "pizza" which actually means "lazy-ass"

I joke - a really good pizza is hard to find and is nirvana for me.

MB said...

Jordan,

good thoughts to you - I'm sure it will go perfectly.

Jordan from the 206 said...

What's your email?

And no, it's not really serious. It's just an endoscopy. They're just going to stick a camera down my throat. Fun stuff.

Colin said...

Jordan....good luck on the surgery, buddy.

Hopefully they don't stick anything else down your throat. Sex joke.

memphish said...

Well Jordan I hope they find whatever it is they are looking for. Did you see this today about Will Arnett?

Holli

Jordan from the 206 said...

You know what's really sick? I'm sitting here trying to figure out how much this procedure is going to cost me after insurance. And I honestly caught myself considering not doing it and instead spending the cash on a Playstation 3. Wow, am I responsible or what? ha!

Thanks for the link Holli. Arnett is hilarity in people form. The entire cast from Arrested Development was simply superb. Everybody on that show was just so good. The guy who played Buster is on that new Andy Richter show. Such an awesome show. I loathe FOX. How could you cancel such genius? I wish very painful crabs upon Rupert Murdoch. By the way, if you haven't checked out AD yet. Stop what you're doing, run to the store, and buy the first season on dvd. If you don't highly enjoy it, you don't know funny.

dave said...

Waaaaaiiit a minute. If a personal chef disappears the day his boss is found dead, do the australian police not do toxicology tests? I mean, seriously.

Eve Phoenix said...

Happy, happy Lostday! I think people should just called the Dharmaline and giggle. The one that comes closes to Ryan's can be the Pseudo-Ryan and you can insert that whenever you need to!

I'd love y'all (I'm from Kentucky, sue me!) to be my Myspace friends if you're not too good for that. Judging by some of the friends you have now, I'd say no! ;)
