OMG! Am I first??!?

PalmerEldritch said...

kim! you beat my ass to first. revenge for me getting post 69 in the last thread?

memphish said...

Congratulations Kim!

aimee in little rock said...

Question: How long was that medusa spider living in that jar without air? I'm assuming there was no ventilation because Arzt said if she opened the jar it would release those pheremones.

Just thinking out loud.

t-dot kim said...

Thank you all.

(Damn straight Palmer!)

So, what have I missed since yesterday? I'm still not pleased about the burried alive thingy (I know, get over it, it's just a TV show) Also dare I say it--I feel sorry for Paolo!! :(

PalmerEldritch said...

Kim, being buried alive is definitely a crappy way to go (poo joke intended).

It's nice to have you lovely ladies back on the blogspot. We've been missing you.

Besides murder, theft, lying to the woman he loved, being annoying, and taking shits all the time, Paolo wasn't a bad guy.

PalmerEldritch said...

oh. what's kim's sexy brazilian name?

PalmerEldritch said...

and ben and producer ryan's? jimmy's?

stephsmith said...

palmer, I called in. Now you.

I am MIA Thursday nights. It's a PVR marathon for me. NBC 8-11pm, and ABC 8-11pm. A lot of laundry and watching the telly

Ralph- said...

Jury Duty is done. I was in there 3 day during a Jury Selection process that was a murder case for a 30day trial. i am glad that i am not there anymore it was boring as hell.

i need to catch up on all our phone calls.

Palmer, Holli and anyone else around, PLEASE SEND ME AN EMAIL @ casinoskunk@yahoo.com, i have something for you.

off to go watch that awesome ass episode again and take my notes.

PalmerEldritch said...

e-mail'd!

memphish said...

Me too.

Holli (aka Nathalia)

And while I'm here. What was up with Paolo post-crash. He looks like he's blind.

Ralph- said...

Love is Blind.

memphish said...

I'm trying out the Fake Name Generator mentioned in the OLP and my random French name in France is Comforte Labossier. Guess I've got my porn star name now.

Comforte (aka Holli aka Nathalia; I have almost as many aliases as SuperKate now.)

PalmerEldritch said...

That is Paolo coming to the sad realization that none of the plane's bathrooms survived the crash.

memphish said...

You would think the Brazilian Tom Cruise was a better actor if you were blind.

Comforte

mb said...

man - a third thread!? we rock people!

Benjamin said...

1st! Oh, wait...

I think my Brazilian name ended up being Grande Sauza or something. I can't remember it, and apparently I didn't post it. Which is weird because I remember signing a post with that name, but maybe the universe course-corrected.

mb said...

Fake name:

Angel M. Stock

Anybody ever been to Sioux Falls?

mb said...

sorry ben - I meant a 3rd thread including the pre-ep one.

memphish said...

Where in South Dakota is Mount Rushmore? I've been there. Me, hubby and my dog, Willie Mac Garza. And that was not his fake name.

Just saw that Comforte is even older than me. Puts an even grosser spin on that porn name thing.

goofball said...

I thought you got your porn name by:

first name = first pets name.

Last name = street where you grew up

Mine is Chipper Hampton

memphish said...

Then my porn name would be Lollipop Denson. Actually that's pretty good.

Holli

aimee in little rock said...

If that were the case goofball, my porn name would be Terminator Wheeler.

I can't get to the website for some reason, so I don't get a fake identity.

memphish said...

My Slovenian name if I lived in France like a certain crazy French chick on LOST would be Marija Ursula Barbis. I was hoping it would be Mira Furlan.

Interesting thing on IMDB it shows how many episodes someone has been in. Benjamin Linus is now tied with Boone, Walt and Mr. Eko. He's ahead of Vincent.

Holli Nathalia Comforte Marija in Memphis

goofball said...

Lollipop? There has to be a porn star with that name already.

Aimee you would have to do bondage and s$m stuff with that name

t-dot kim said...

No kidding, my porn name would be Muffin Cocksworth. I win.

Stephanie Smith I love your voice. You need to call us more often. Weekly, I demand it. In fact we need more calls.

Jimmy said...

Gerty Horsham

memphish said...

Kim Wins.

memphish said...

Jimmy wins worst porn name. That cracked me up. I'm going to see Blades of Glory now. Later.

Lollipop

goofball said...

Please give a full review of "blades" when you return. I saw the trailer when I went to 300. It looked hilarious.

aimee in little rock said...

Oh Kim wins. Sorry Gerty.

PalmerEldritch said...

Muffin Cocksworth? Daaaaaamn. Canada's Next Top Pr0nStar!

/if Muffin has Kim's radio voice, we are in business

elias said...

Porn name:

Bobo Claremount

t-dot kim said...

Ok, I think I may see a Blades of Glory tonight. I don't want to sit in a theatre full of kids, but what are you gonna do?

Still haven't seen 300!!! :(

PalmerEldritch said...

Methinks it's TMNT this weekend thanks to Aimee's recommendation.

mb said...

#42 baby

Mark In Hull said...

My porn star name is Bingo Crawford, which is pretty good, but my best mate's would be Slow Payne. I'm so jealous...

MB said...

Let's do the NUMBERS for this thread:

#4 Aimee
#8 Palmer
#15 Memphish
#16 Palmer
#23 MB
#42 MB

I tied you Palmer!

mb said...

OMG i just looked back at Kim's porn name - that's THE best I've ever heard - ever!

PalmerEldritch said...

I've always said that if I was a porn star, my name would be Clint Taurus.

/first pets were Abby and Mimi

Mb said...

Slow Payne is damn good too

mb said...

I of course am talking about the NAME

goofball said...

bobo claremont? That could be clown porn. You could wear a red nose big shoes and nothing else.

t-dot kim said...

That version of the Porn Name Game is unfair, MB. I always win.

t-dot kim said...

oh, and in response to #47. that's what she said.

goofball said...

I'm in Ohio. It's still march and I gotta cut my grass today. This global warming stuff is a bitch.

Anonymous said...

Domino Bailey!
Razzle freakin Dazzle.

TeeJ

P.S. Who the fuck are Paulo and Nikki?

mb said...

a [ba-dum ~crash~] on the drums for the kim - good one

mb said...

goofball - I'm right there with you on the lawnmowing. There's like 1 or 2 weeks (usually not until April) when my backyard goes from lawn to jungle overnight if I don't do anything. you can actually hear the grass growing - it's crazy

PalmerEldritch said...

My lawn almost doesn't have any snow on it. w00t!

Benjamin said...

Well, according to the rules my name would be T.C. Mayes. Which is more of an author name than a porn name. I think I prefer my other porn name: Dick Swinging. Or my other, other porn name: Ben Johnson.

Anyone going to see Lookout this weekend?

memphish said...

Back from Blades and my new catch-phrase is Chazzle Dazzle which I stole from Will Ferrell. I can give the movie 2 Blades Up. It's exactly what you would expect from the movie, so if you like that kind of movie go see it. Or if you want to see Jenna Fischer in a Merry Widow go see it.

Holli

aimee in little rock said...

Is that the one that's like Memento but with forward timing and a bank robbery? Yeah, no.

Benjamin said...

But, but, retrograde amnesia! And the kid from Brick! How can it go wrong?

PalmerEldritch said...

Ben, have you seen TMNT? It comes Aimee-Recommended. That's where I'm off to this weekend.

MB said...

perhaps I can still find Children of Men out there somewhere. I'm so behind

Ralph- said...

did anyone mention the fact that Locke says "Things dont stay buried on this island" to paulo?

memphish said...

mb, Children of Men is at your local Blockbuster now. It might be at your local dollar theatre as well.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

yeah, ralph. someone smart. i forget who though... memphish? mb? i dunno.

it's a good point. although he may have just been foreshadowing that Nikki would find out about the diamonds and that Sun would find out about Charlie and Sawyer's Excellent Kidnap Attempt.

memphish said...

I think Locke's statement was clearly meant to indicate instead you should instead put 3 layers of wooden nesting dolls in water. Brilliant! to quote the Guiness commercials.

Has anything else come unburied?

Holli

Benjamin said...

Sun's ring came unburied.

I saw TMNT last weekend and Children of Men last year. Children of Men was really good.

memphish said...

Can Dr. 90210 give you bullet-proof breast implants? I'm just asking.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

69! Eat that, Kim!

(no pun intended)

aimee in little rock said...

We all know that was totally intended.

The Marshal's body was unburied. The messages in the bottle was also (along with Sun's ring).

aimee in little rock said...

Also, Jack was buried in a cave-in, the real Henry Gale was dug up, and Kate & Tom dug up their time capsule.

memphish said...

Aimee is our own little LostPedia today. I guess the Swan was dug up too. And now to ask it another way, has anything stayed buried other than Joanna, Scott, Boone, Shannon, Ana Lucia, and Libby?

Holli

P.S. It took you long enough to realize 69 was available.

That's what she said.

aimee in little rock said...

I just read a news story online about a 5 year old Korean boy in Toronto who fell 9 stories from a balcony. And survived.

aimee in little rock said...

Ethan stayed buried. So far we can presume Eko has. Donald the tailie on the other side of the island probably isn't going anywhere, along with the three Others they killed. I don't know if they buried the Others though; I can't remember.

memphish said...

Has any thing as opposed to person stayed buried?

They've hidden the guns several times and Virgin Mary's but they've always resurfaced.

Holli

aimee in little rock said...

Paulo already had his own line of merchandise out there? Click Here

memphish said...

I'm scared to ask if that can be substituted for the item depicted on it.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

aimee, you rule.

aimee in little rock said...

I'll bet Paulo buried a lot of toilet paper on that island.

PalmerEldritch said...

i hope so... for the sake of anyone who shook his hand.

aimee in little rock said...

Or all the food he touched in that beach kitchen. Think of the e.coli outbreak. Yeesh.

PalmerEldritch said...

"keep your smelly hands off the dharmalars, paolo!"

memphish said...

The next to the last paragraph of the J. Wood Expose post has an interesting story about a Haitian zombie and what could possibly happen to Pikki.

Holli

memphish said...

My first thought when it looked like Pikki was poisoned was that it was the Dharma Oat bars.

Holli

Seattle Jordan said...

My porn name doesn't work too well.

Fluffy 129th Ave SE.

Guess I'm not selling too many dvd's.

Seattle Jordan said...

I'm torn as to how bad I want to see Blades of Glory. I love those types of movies and am a big Will Ferrell fan (although he's seriously flirting with a bad case of overexposure), but I can't stand with a passion Jon "I play Napoleon Dynamite in every movie I'm in" Heder. He just annoys the crap outta me. And I don't find him very funny. If only Will Arnett (the dude in my avatar) was in his role instead of some side character, then I'd be stoked as all hell. But it still looks funny. I guess I'll just have to get over my hate for Napoleon Dynamite for an hour and a half.

geez. i didn't think this episode was going to spark much talk so i decided to work at work. gotsta play catchups.

porn name: McDuff Princess Anne
i don't want to know what demographic that one scores well with.

watched Children Of Men last night. i liked it but i wasn't blown away by it. i'm surprised that it got so much hype.

i really enjoyed: Shortbus, and Machuca

i want to see
Zodiac
300 (in the theatre)
TMNT (eventually)
28 Weeks Later

Hot Fuzz

Sunshine? In Pittsburgh? In March?

Ralph- said...

206-202-1458 please call.

PalmerEldritch said...

Rolphington, check your inbox.

memphish said...

Andrew,

Funny that you attribute all this chatter to the episode. It's really just a discussion of alternate identities we all plan to assume be it porn name, sexy Brazilian name, random name, what have you.

Can we get to 108 before Ralph posts the podcast? That is the question.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

sure, we can. let's see who gets the kablamo. the race is on.

B. Linus said...

Listened To The Official PodCast Earlier, And They Didn't Say Anything About Pikki Even Maybe Gettin Out From Under The Dirt They've Gotten Themselves Into. Still Not Sure They Are Dead Though.

Seattle Jordan said...

Dude, they are so totally dead.

Carlton basically said that they were killed off because they didn't have time for them. That they started off the season with plans to incorporate them into the show more than they were ultimately able. He used the analogy of going to the grocery store when you are hungry and buying way more food than you need. The producers' eyes were bigger than their stomachs.

I'm glad he touched on that. Because that pretty much explains why Nikki & Paolo died before they ever factored into the overall story. That was the feeling I got after this ep. That their deaths was basically, "Oops, our bad" by the producers and them trying to make the best of it by offing them in a memorable way.

I know some fans are upset about the fact that Nikki & Paolo never really served a purpose. But knowing why it was the case, I don't really mind. Making tv shows isn't an exact science.

elias said...

It's a shame the writers couldn't incorporate them into Lost in an interesting way. They always had their backstory sorted, but didn't plan their deaths this early and probably wanted to have a stronger Others connection. Maybe the "chemistry" wasn't there.

And clown porn is totally wrong!

Anonymous said...

don't knock it til you try it. ;)

PalmerEldritch said...

don't be such a Bozo

Seattle Jordan said...

Has anybody heard that Lost might not start next season until Jan '08? It would then go from beginning to end uninterrupted ala 24 style. I just read something. Is this old news? At first though, it seems like a long wait. But then again, it would probably be better than taking 13 weeks off in the middle.

B. Linus said...

Yeah. They Did Say That Huh? I Guess I Was Just Hoping To See Some Kinda Tribute To The Zombie Reason They're Always Joking About. It Would Have Been Cool To See Hurley Totally Freak Out Or Something. Sorry Bout All The Capital Letters By The Way, I'm Checkin In On My Cell And The T9W Makes The First Letter Of Every Word A Capital One.

PalmerEldritch said...

OK, just finished listening to the OFFICIAL Lost Podcast. Is anyone else sick of those damn AT&T commercials at the end? Mack McKinney is my sworn enemy now.

/100?

And speak of the devil. We were just talking about Rolph the dog the other day. Catch who makes a cameo in this music video.

memphish said...

Palmer, you keep listening? I take off the head phones and walk away. Yes, just walk away.

I have to say after listening to the OLP that I'm glad they didn't get their full-time with Pikki. I didn't want to watch 43 minutes of Expose. If I want that I'll watch Charlie's Angels reruns or something on Skinamax.

My hubby's porn star name is Lady Blue. That's right, doctor by day, Lady Blue by night.

/101

memphish said...

Sorry about the 102, I'll make it 103 to get us closer to Kablamo.

Seattle Jordan, I vote you go to see Blades of Glory. I liked it but then I liked Hot Shots Part Deux. I didn't really get the Napoleon Dynamite craze, so it doesn't bother me.

PalmerEldritch said...

My mom wants to see "Blades of Glory." Would it be entirely too uncomfortable to watch it with her?

stephsmith said...

I missed so much.
My porn name would be Daisy Millcreek.
Kimberley, I promise to call every week even if I have nothing interesting to say. What am I talking about? I always have plenty to say about Lost. Surely I'll have something interesting to say.
Saw "Blades". Baby Cakes choice, not mine. I say, "Wait for DVD." Will Ferrell needs to move on and he needs to stop making the same movie over and over. He's turned into Adam Sandler.
Jordan, I just want to say I'm enamored with Will Arnett. I've recently started watching Arrested Development (thanks to the magic of DVR) and am an admirer of his receding hairline.
I don't want to think about season 4. I just want to enjoy this season.
I don't know what in the hell a T9W is, but I have to have one. Wonder if I can get that here in the sticks.
Elias, maybe the writers found out Rodrigo can't speak English and Kiele has no acting ability.

memphish said...

Palmer,

Will Farrell plays a sex addict and gropes Pam from The Office, but if you can handle that sitting next to your mom, oh and the inevtiable male crotch crunches, then hey, no problem.

You could leave an "I'm not gay seat" between you if you're worried.

Holli
/105?

stephsmith said...

palmer, I took my 8 year-old. There's only one really cringe-worthy moment. It's not bad compared to most.

memphish said...

Kablamo

memphish said...

And now I'm resuming my regularly scheduled life. Catch you all on the Dharmalars podcast thread.

Holli

Seattle Jordan said...

I agree Steph. Will Ferrell is making the same movie over and over. He needs to step away from the camera for a little bit. Take a break dude!

And yes, Will Arnett is the man! Arrested Development is one of my all time favorite anythings. It was pure genius. Is Arnett in this movie much? What about his real life wife, Amy Pohler? She's funny too.

Man, that Kermit video really creeped/bummed me out. I was in a pretty good mood before I watched that. Now I just feel like doing a pile of coke.

B. Linus said...

T9W Is A Cell Phone Program That Lets You Punch In The Numbers And It Will Figure Out Which Word You Are Spelling.

aimee in little rock said...

I just got back from seeing Blades of Glory. It was funny, but I know what you're saying about Will Ferrell characters seeming a bit similar. It's the same egomaniacal sexist character who thinks he's super-sexy, and manages to show off his pudgy body as an added joke to how he's not actually hot but thinks he is in his own mind, and the character starts at the top of his field, suffers some kind of crushing blow, and manages to crawl back to the top by the end of the film. They're good for laughs, but it's starting to get a little old.

P.S. I like Lost

aimee in little rock said...

And to answer your question Seattle Jordan, we talked about that last week. ABC is discussing the 24-style programming, but nothing "official" has been announced.

Most likely, it will be done this way, because the 2-pod scheduling was not received well at all by anyone. So yeah, Lost will most likely start season 4 in January, and go non-stop to the end. That might actually be nice for them because it gives them an opportunity to get ahead of schedule with writing and shooting, especially considering all the footage incidents they had this year (the airport thing and the Jin stuff.)

Jordan from the 206 said...

I heard about the airport incident, but what was the Jin stuff?

Man that Kermit vid...wow, I'm laughing and I feel dirty at the same time.

Excellent Craig - saddle up dixie!

MB said...

Now i feel more dirty - sorry folks

DenAss said...

Saw BOG tonight as well. Liked it a lot. Didn't love it, but hey, it was worth the $18 I spent on MYSELF to buy a ticket, coke and a popcorn.

I swear, if I keep hagning out in airports, movie theatres, and hotels with ducks in the lobby, I'm gonna think it's normal to pay $5 for a soda anymore.

But back to W.F., and B.O.G. I'm kinda feelin you all about Will Ferrell playing the same guy over and over. Ron Burgundy, Ricky Bobby, Chazz Michael Michaels, etc... But for me, that hasn't got old as quickly as Jon Heder playing Napolean Dynamite AGAIN.

And speaking of Jon Heder, I happened to catch him in a total chick flick while I was hunkered down in a hotel room during a tornado warning. I think it was called Just Like Heaven, with Reese (another scrunchy face) Witherspoon. He wasn't quite playing N. Dynamite in that one, but he might as well have been.

Then I also picked up a copy of this month's Wired magazine with Jenna Fischer on the cover NAKED. So as you can tell, there were all kinds of signs that told me I needed to see this movie as soon as it came out.

Did anyone else see the trailer for the next fantastic 4 movie? The Rise of the Silver Surfer? Looks pretty damned cool. I was hoping to see a Transformers trailer, but that didn't happen tonight. Yes, I know what a geek I am. Shut up.

I'll leave with a thought on Lost: Which was a more egregious post production audio insertion: Paolo's "Is it the others?", or Nikki's "Razzle Dazzle" (the first one, from Expose')?

And Kim, sorry, but I didn't find the buried alive thing disturbing. Maybe I need to become more emotionally invested in the show?

DenAss said...

oh, I almost forgot. My porn name = Pussycat Tahoe

give me a break, I found a stray cat when I was like 4 years old. what the hell did I know about naming cats?

Mike Campbell said...

I am off to kansas city to see the Red Sox. Everyone have a good week of blogging and podcasting. I have been saving up the past few podcasts to listen to on the 23 hour car ride.

Take care everyone!

DenAss said...

23 hour trip. 23. nice. And I noticed that there's a game on the 4th in Kansas City. Last year, Boston came in 3rd place in their division, while KC came in 5th place, and 3+5=8.

Boston has zero (0) players on their active roster with one of "the numbers" on his jersey, while KC has two (2), 23 Zack Greinke and 16 Reggie Sanders. So obviously, KC has the advantage in this game...

Casey D said...

what the hell, its 2:33 a.m. and I don't have a new dharmalars episode!!!, I blame it all on producer ryan

Casey D said...

denass, julio lugo wears 23

dharmalars said...

the episode is our LONGEST to date, by far!

had some trouble in post.

there is an extra segment that had to be edited this week.

it will be up in 45 min.

Casey D said...

no worries, just felt like breakin' some balls

Casey D said...

luckilly, I have to be up as episodes 3x07, 3x08, and 3x09 burn to a dvd, and by the time thats done I will have new dharmalarssssss

DenAss said...

Nice catch, Casey. I totally missed Julio Lugo. And I always seem to catch these threads at the end, right before a new f'ing thread starts. damn!
