You're Welcome.

memphish said...

Thank you. That's in response to Kim's flash forward post.

apPaullo said...

Seconds!

Jordan from the 206 said...

Nice.

t-dot kim said...

What happened to Palmer in the last thread?? lol...

Jordan from the 206 said...

lol. I don't know. Is he doing that on purpose?

PastPablo said...

Badasssssssss

MB said...

Hey all,

Going back to the last thread. I like Jordan's idea a lot (cause I was thinking along similar lines), that Ben has been aware of Naomi's "bad people" and that they want to get to the island. It makes sense to me also that it could be Hanso, or Widmore, or both, or some part of those organizations that have been wanting to get back on that island ever since the purge. Are they actually bad? The million $$ question for me - if I had to guess, I'd say yes (in so far as they perhaps want to do a payback purge and thus control the island)

This no-Lost-for-8-months thing sucks nads BTW

apPaullo said...

I hear James Brown in my head; SUPERBAD!

PalmerEldritch said...

ok... so, what'd i do in the last thread?

the Brian Wilson lyrics? or did i miss something?

elias said...

Sayid demonstrates the quart of blood technique. and he bruises on the inside :)

PastPablo said...

Yeah I'd say it's gonna be Widmore or Hanso. Maybe Hanso, because that would connect them to Widmore (since Naomi had explicit details about Des/Pen), hence tying those corporations (along with Sun's Dad's company) in a nice little bow for us.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Help me out here fellow blogspotters! I'm heading out to lunch and can't make up my mind. I've narrowed it down to the following: Mom's Teriyaki, Quiznos, Gyro World, Rockin' Burrito, or Golden Palace (Thai food). Whichever gets the most votes between now and when I leave wins. Vote wisely. My lunch & stomach depends on it.

PastPablo said...

Teriyaki

elias said...

Gyno World (I haven't heard of any of these establishments)

PastPablo said...

jordan, you posted at 1:08 - Kablamo!!!!!!!!! for that

PalmerEldritch said...

i'm abstaining my vote until i know what to be heinously ashamed of from the last thread.

take THAT, guy on the internet looking to eat some lunch.

PastPablo said...

I've never heard of Gyno World actually.

/shameless OB slash GYN joke here

PastPablo said...

Dude, palmer, you seriously don't know?

MB said...

Palmer - I was going to ask the same question - not sure what they were talking about.

Jordan - assuming you like all those places equally (and none of them have a greater chance of suck-age) I'd go Thai. damn, now I want Thai.

PalmerEldritch said...

i have no clue. :(

PastPablo said...

Wow......

...Season 4 will end in Pittsburgh at the height of American Steel dominance with smoke belching into the sky...


if this is true, finale party at my house.

andrew.

Jordan from the 206 said...

I haven't heard of Gyno World either. Actually, I don't know where the hell I got Gyro World from either. The place is called The Grecian Corner. Gyro World is this crappy place in a mall.

PalmerEldritch said...

did i actually do anything or does Kim just not recognize lesser known beach boys lyrics?

Anonymous said...

Jordan - Golden Palace in Pittsburgh is the most ghetto Chinese Buffet ever. All of the food is a shade of brown. So, as much as i love Thai food, nix on that, guilt by association.
If they've got good burritos in your neck of the woods, hit that. i miss a good burrito.

andrew.

PastPablo said...

LOl palmer, I was actually wondering what you "did" also, that up there was just me being a dick. Sorry, cheap laughs at your expense man!

MB said...

I'm "Lost" like you Palmer - don't know what they're talking about. But now I want to know too - lol

PastPablo said...

Hey MB, how're you coping?

PalmerEldritch said...

hey, at least i didn't quote that "Favorite Vegetables" song by the Beach Boys...

Jordan from the 206 said...

Damn. I am totally off my game. I'm getting the names of all these places wrong. It's not Golden Palace, it's Golden Singha. When you mentioned the Chinese buffet Andrew, I remember we used to have one here. It was recently torn down to build condos.

Jordan from the 206 said...

BTW, whenever I can't decide what to do for lunch, I usually check out this site.

http://www.yelp.com

It's pretty cool. It's a site where people can review just about anything. Restaurants, movie theaters, grocery stores, you name it. One of my favorite things to do when I eat somewhere disgusting is go to this site and write up a nasty review. The site only has certain cities, so it might not work for everybody here.

Jordan from the 206 said...

And you guys officially suck. 4-way tie between teriyaki, gyro, burrito, and thai. Thanks for the help. I think I'll just go to Jack in the Box.

PalmerEldritch said...

kim's given me a complex.

and jordan, when in doubt, hit up all four choices. and jack in the box.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Palmer, I can't speak for Kimmy. But what I thought she was talking about was how you were posting in the old thread about 30 minutes after the new one had started. My comment about you doing it on purpose had to do with the fact that you were singing a song about being alone in your hatch. And at the time you were alone in that thread. Get it? haha.

MB said...

Pablo...(sigh)...re: coping, I simply spend days and nights repeatedly visiting Lost sites again, and again, and again, desparately hoping that each time I hit refresh on each of the 20+ pages I keep on screen at any one time, there will be a new nugget of info. I dont do anything else really. I can't concentrate, my work is suffering, my wife nags me about meaningless things like eating, and sleeping...my life is a shambles.

Sorry - mind wandered there... that's Jack and his island obsession (minus the wife) - I'm doin' just fine :)

PalmerEldritch said...

jordan, if only that had been my intention!

i mean, "jordan, that was my intention!"

/yeah, that's the ticket

MB said...

Jordan,
I'm changing my vote to burrito

JonJon said...

I'm too tired to read all this conversation.

JonJon said...

But I must say that Sayid is one pretty devil

Jordan from the 206 said...

Ok, MB broke the stalemate. Burrito it is! And get this. The place I'm going to make a bitchin' Thai Chicken burrito. So it combines both of your votes MB. Woo hoo.

JonJon said...

I am happy for you and your decision, and I respect it. Eat your borrito, and enjoy!

casey_donahue said...

holy crap.

I am gone for 1 day and theres 200+ posts...and lost isnt even on!

this is crazy, and i wont have internet for 2 days until mr. broadband comes and hooks me up.

update on my life: I am in new york for a month doing some assistant editing work and people dont like it when i wear my red sox hat. I cant wait for the red sox and yankees to play this weekend when I will probably get more than just nasty looks from everyone and I will probably get in an arguement with my doorman.

Jordan from the 206 said...

I'm off to eat. Damn it's late. I'm starving! Thank you everybody. I couldn't have done it without you.

Jimmy said...

You're not talking "Bimbo's Bitchin' Burritos" are you, Jordan?

MB said...

Damn - Thai chicken burrito. That sounds nice.

PastPablo said...

Enjoy the burrito. lol @ mb.

The hiatus honestly hasn't hit me yet. This blogspot gives just enough of a lost fix, + I just discovered netflix, so I'm staying entertained.

MB said...

Stay strong Casey, you're behind enemy lines - but you have righteousness on you side (IMO)

t-dot kim said...

Palmer, sometimes it's just too easy. *sigh*

apPaullo said...

Casey, I am a native New Englander living in New York, and I wear Red Sox clothing rarely after having various sections of my anatomy threatened on a subway late one night.

Really, people. It's only baseball.

PSST. Yankees suck!

casey_donahue said...

mb its crazy how much more people despise red sox fans in new york then people in boston despise yankee fans, it probably has to do with the fact that they are 13.5 games behind

but i will not give them what they want by taking off my hat. i told my doorman he should become a mets fan, then he can at least root for a team that will make the playoffs.

JonJon said...

I'm not much of a baseball fan

t-dot kim said...

Yankees do suck. They were in The T-Dot last night and they played a dirty game in the 9th inning. :(

stephsmith said...

1)Ellen Barkin is one hot old lady. The Big Easy.
2)I believe Jordan is mocking me.
3)I have no idea how Ben knows Naomi is bad.
4)I had Burbon chicken from the foodcourt. It must be some sort of oriental food. I'm not really sure. Very tasty though.

apPaullo said...

And A-ROD is the dumbest wife-cheater in history.

stephsmith said...

That's Bourbon Chicken.

PalmerEldritch said...

yankees suck. but the story i heard about A-Rod telling the opposing player that he was going to catch the ball is friggin' hilarious. mean and dirty but hilarious.

and, yeah, getting your picture taken with your mistress in public is a no-no. am i right?

steph, i'd think Bourbon Chicken would be french. maybe cajun?

t-dot kim said...

I don't know who has seen this, but CLICK here! Kinda funny, but badly acted by the dumb blonde

PalmerEldritch said...

bourbon street -> bourbon chicken?

cajun!

stephsmith said...

You'd think that, wouldn't you, Palmer. But it's sold by Asians and served with fried rice and egg rolls.

PastPablo said...

lol Kim, nice vid. Didn't know Michael was wearing Blue Contact. Is a thumb really a finger? lolol

stephsmith said...

Stupid Heroes fans.

PalmerEldritch said...

ok, they're cajun asians?

try saying that three times fast!

Jordan from the 206 said...

The Thai Chicken burrito was awesome. Thanks again for the help.

Yankee fans and Red Sox fans are one in the same. You guys just can't see it. It's what makes the rivalry so amusing from afar.

Steph, why do you think I am mocking you? This is my tribute to your super cool pic. If anything, I'm mocking myself in it. I mean, I'm reading a dvd for crying out loud. lol.

apPaullo said...

That interview was sort of funny, except that Michael Emerson looked like Clay Aiken circe 3 years ago. Much creepier than his little 'Ben' act.

PastPablo said...

Palmer, lmao @ your pic ahahah

elias said...

that woman is creepier than Ben or Michael Emerson.

he is bloody good at what he does

PalmerEldritch said...

yeah, that video that kim posted is bizarre.

elias said...

I see they don't do entertainment news low-key in the U.S. it's a little too broad for my taste.

Jordan from the 206 said...

So anyway. Remeber the other day when we were talking about bluetooth headsets? I just by chance found one that works with my phone lying around here at work. Nobody claimed it, so I took it. I tried it out when I was out to lunch and instantly felt like the douchiest douch bag in the world. I will never use that thing unless I'm driving.

Anonymous said...

anyone see the commercials for the Hallmark channel version of Marco Polo starring the one and only Boone? It sounds like Ian got dialogue coaching from Sayid himself.

andrew.

JonJon said...

Aww come on Jordan, everyone that is anyone has a blue tooth device!

stephsmith said...

Ok, just skimmed through The Evil Dead. I see why the first girl became possessed, with the tree rapeing and everything. But why was Ash the only one to not be overtaken by the demons? Am I over-thinking this, or what? I may have missed something important by fastforwarding.

PalmerEldritch said...

steph, have you seen Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness?

sorry. meant to warn you about that Tree scene... ugh...

Man, you leave to watch Spiderman 3 and get some dinner (fancy fried oysters and some beef tenderloin with garlic mashed potatoes, not to mention some tasty wine) and you come back and find tons of posts.

Spiderman 3 was the best comedy I've seen all year (next to Blades of Glory; I don't go to many movies) with some action scenes thrown in to boot. What's with Sam Raimi all of a sudden throwing in annoying hand-held jerky shots when Sandman takes out the first armored car? The Chin was magnifique! Even the kids behind us lauged at his pronunciation of Parker.

And I couldn't stop looking at Kirsten Dunst's crooked tooth thanks to Palmer. But the crooked teeth of the night award goes to Sandman's Kid.

All right comic book people, how do you destroy Sandman? I thought the fire to turn him to glass that you break was going to do the trick--but no! He completely reminded me of Smokey when he got all fisty.

Love your Clay Aiken picture Palmer! (I know it's Ben, but the Clay Aiken call is a good one.)

Holli

Jordan from the 206 said...

I'm not a big Kirsten Dunst fan. And I usually don't see much in Bryce Dallas Howard, but I thought she was pretty hot in this movie. She should stay blonde.

memphish said...

So that's who the blonde was. I was wondering, then forgot to look.

Sandman's kid was the child in Kill Bill Vol. 2

memphish said...

Nice picture JonJon. You should probably go back and put one in the Red Card thread too.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

i have yet to watch Spiderman 2 and 3. i think this is because of A) Kirsten Dunst, B) tobey's annoying voice, and C) tobey maguire is 80 pounds and a flannel shirt away from being every angry lesbian teacher i ever knew in middle school. :\

/not that there's anything wrong with that

Jordan from the 206 said...

Somewhere Aimee in Little Rock is crying.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Palmer, Say what you want about Spidey 3, but 2 is pretty dang good. I'd at least check that one out.

JonJon said...

I think you should see at least Spider-man 2, that one was good. However I hated 3, too many stories, too much complaining from Peter and Mary jane, also Topher Grace (is that how you spell his name?) could never be in my mind Eddie Brock.

PalmerEldritch said...

yeah, i've consistently heard that Spidey 2 is MUCH better than the others. but, meh, i just can't muster enough energy to care.

and i'm a big spidey fan. i'll be getting Spider-Man 3 on whichever NextGen console i end up with.

anyone care to start up a PS3 v. XBox 360 flamewar to help me choose? anyone want to start up an HD-DVD v. Blu-Ray flamewar for me to read?

oh wait... we can settle this. Is LOST going to be out on a high-def format?!

memphish said...

I went into Spiderman 3 with very low expectations, much as I will go into Pirates. I don't have any pre-conceived comic book notions, so the characters don't annoy me too much. I found it a fun diversion, but then again, I went 3 weeks after it opened in an afternoon with less than 20 people in the theater. And Tobey Maguire is a 90-pound weaking, but his channeling of Peter Petrelli combined with John Travolta was pretty darned funny.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

spidey 3 the game, not the movie.

memphish said...

Alas no, Palmer. I don't understand the format wars, but if you can broadcast in HD why can't you do HD-DVDs not that anyone can afforad an HD DVD player. I'm getting Hubby Planet Earth in HD for Father's Day in the hopes that one day we'll have an HD DVD player.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

is tobey no longer monumentally ripped like he was for spidey 1? the dude is a friggin' nerdburger but he could have kicked my ass three ways to sunday in spidey 1.

trevor mcfur said...

Spidey 2 was fantastic, my choice for the #2 all-time superhero movie (like Batman Begins as #1). Spidey 3 looks like a big-time wait til the video. Although I'm probably not a good one to judge, the last film I saw on the big screen was Superman Returns (cuz I'm a big Superman nerd).

Jordan from the 206 said...

I refuse to buy hd-dvd's or bluray's. Why buy a bunch of movies when the format might not be around much longer? I don't see how both will suceed and peacefully co-exist. I mean, just look at beta max. In the end, one format usually wins out for one reason or another. Yeah, the hd stuff looks real nice. But the time being my old dvd's look fine. I have way too many to rebuy, especially considering how freaking expensive HD and Bluray are. I don't mind spending $15-20 for a dvd, but $30? The HD version of Heroes season 1 is going to go for $80. That's ridiculous. I like hd just like everybody else. But I can't afford that kind of crap.

Jordan from the 206 said...

I hated Superman Returns with a passion. Last movie I saw where I left the theather swearing. The last dvd I rented that did that to me was Babel. What a piece of crap that one was.

PalmerEldritch said...

yeah. the blu-ray v. HDDVD thing confuses me to no end. but i'm going to be in desperate need of a NextGen console in August when Madden comes out. :)

Jordan from the 206 said...

Palmer, the only way I'd currently buy a hi end dvd player is by buying a PS3. You're basically getting a free game sytem with it, or a free bluray player, depending which way you look at it. If bluray doesn't prevail over hd-dvd, then you aren't totally screwed. But I doubt one format will totally win out too soon. It will probably be a long annoying battle.

trevor mcfur said...

Superman Returns was a crushing disappointment. I love the old school, first two films, and had high hopes that some of the X-Men 2 magic would rub off on Superman. Not to be, though... My belief that what went wrong with that movie is that Bryan Singer tried too hard to evoke the spirit of the original Reeve films.

trevor mcfur said...

Which one of the two has porn? That's the one that will win out (and I'm only partly joking).

PalmerEldritch said...

trevor, i was reading over on AintItCoolNews and the annoying posters made a couple of good points.

while teh pr0n has been the leading force in many technological advances (VHS over Betamax, and the creation of Al Gore's Internet), the consensus is that both formats will have porn. and they also pointed out that if you want porn, there's a thing called the internet.

so, i'm thinking that we can't just pick a winner by asking "what would porno do?"

/wwpd?

PalmerEldritch said...

speaking of porno, why did you think the One-Eyed Other wanted to be alone in the Flame with the internet hookup?

Mikhail's a naughty Other.

JonJon said...

I wouldn't ask wwpd, cause it might get sticky! ;)

JonJon said...

Kablammo!

PalmerEldritch said...

w00t! kablamonation like a professional.

JonJon said...

Tonight's 108 Kablamo is brought to you by Porn.
Porn-leanding a hand since 1905

JonJon said...

*lending*

stephsmith said...

Porn is in HD. How do I know this?
Don't buy bluray. WalMart has made a deal to begin selling cheap HD DVD players at Christmastime. Bluray is history.
Superman Returns was good. Superman had no dialogue.
Spiderman was funnier than it should have been in places and not funny enough in others. Why was I the only one in the theater laughing when Peter poured sand out of his boot?
Palmer, I was trying to respond to your questions but kept messing up the clickable links. I tryed watching Evil Dead 2 a few weeks ago when all the BC talk was going on. I couldn't stomach it. I believe it comes on again tonight and I'm recording it again to give it another chance.

PalmerEldritch said...

steph, i've read that Wally World is interested in ubercheap HDDVD players but i've also read that that rumor was shot down. and then it was apparently un-shutdown possibly. blah!

these format wars are as vexing as the mysteries of JizzIsland!

Jordan from the 206 said...

Yeah, it's not exactly a movie for everybody Steph.

All this porn got me thinking. Man do young kids have it easy nowadays with the internet! Back when I was in the discovering myself stage, we didn't have no interweb with a limitless database of porn at our fingertips. We had to work so hard to get our hands on stuff. Somebody's older brother would have to buy a magazine or video and everybody would pass it around. lol. I remember stealing my mom's victoria secret catalogs because I had nothing to go on. What kid would ever do that now when they have the internet? hahaha.

Man, our generation is going to be such the old bunch of grouches. "When I was your age, we didn't have the internet. And I remember when you used to have to get up to change the channel on your tv!" I am already my grandfather.

PalmerEldritch said...

ever talk to teenagers? man, they've got no clue who the hell erik estrada is. you say "Sonny and Crockett" and they go "who? oh... i think i saw that Jamie Foxx movie." think they have any idea who Magic Johnson and Larry Bird are? Kareem Abdul-Jabbar? Dr. J?!

/old and bitter at 26

trevor mcfur said...

I feel old knowing that at one point during my life, my family owned a black and white TV.

trevor mcfur said...

I would say that kids are better for not knowing Erik Estrada.

Ah, fond memories of the Victoria's Secret catalogue...

trevor mcfur said...

Sonny and Crockett? Not familiar with that duo myself.

PalmerEldritch said...

sorry! Crockett and Tubbs. ha!

Sonny and Rico.

/miami vice

trevor mcfur said...

Thought for a second you meant Sonny & Cher. :)

JonJon said...

I think I can possibly say that I am either the youngest or close to the youngest poster on the blogspot. Even then I'm well familiar with pop culture that took place before my time. So I think that there are a few of us "youngin's" that have quite a bit of knowledge.

trevor mcfur said...

Check this out. mb better watch out ... he and mac might be getting a visit from ABC Security.

JonJon said...

You know I'm glad that the production is going to be much more tight and have nothing leak. It is just stupid that people can be so impatient that they must find out things before it occurs.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Is Damon Lindelof a hobbit or is Carlton Cuse a giant?

You be the judge

memphish said...

I write all this spoiler brou-haha talk off to the giving something for the producers to say without saying anything. They are running an internet-heavy show and for spoilers of that magnitude to get leaked was a problem at their end, not the fans' problem.

Cuseloff intended to leave us without direction after that finale. Hell, with an 8 month hiatus give us all at least a month to explore every frickin' possibility! Why narrow us down?

Besides, they'd already made vacation plans. 3 weeks before the finale aired they said on the OLP that there wouldn't be a finale OLP because they were going on vacation. To blame it on Lostfan108 now is re-writing history.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

jordan, how much of a jerk am i?

i clicked that picture and immediately thought of Master-Blaster from Beyond Thunderdome.

yowzers. that's so harsh i almost didn't post it.

don't worry, cuseloff, you guys are great and all. just the picture that jordan posted...

PalmerEldritch said...

of course, i just asked WWRBD and decided to post it.

/what would ralph and ben do?

trevor mcfur said...

Holy shit palmer, they really do look alike ... I'm going to be giggling all night long after seeing that.

MB said...

Well I just read that article about Season 4 tightened security - yikes! I guess I'd better retain a copyright infringement attorney just in case! lol

I guess I'll wait and see if I have a job come February.

However, I must disagree with you Jon that all forward-looking info that people share is the just the result of impatience - but I do realize that you were probably commenting on the finale spoiler issue in particular, which I personally feel was too much info.

Frankly if there are no spoilers next season and I don't do a segment, it's no big deal. Everyone I talk to who read spoilers do so only because it's fun. But I will say, while i do not feel that the big finale spoiler ruined my enjoyment of the episode in the least, I do think it was overkill, and there is a big difference between a spoiler based on a fan sighting of a shoot-in-progress, or hints and factoids given to Kristin @E! or Ausiello, and an ENTIRE plot outline being posted online, which is what happened. I agree with Holli fundamentally - security issues start with them, at the source. And it sounds like radio silence is their answer -
(Emperor voice) "so be it... Cuseloff"

Sorry for my wordsplosion, but the article got me thinking.

Bloglove to everyone.

Jellymanianos said...

Jesus, i sleep for 8 hours and you lot go mental! How many posts?

To go over some old ground (Probably, by now) - I seriously hope that Blu-Ray goes tits-up, because that will mean XBox wins, and Sony have fucked themselves with the PS3 - which answers your conundrum of which next-gen console to get Palmer - 360 is the only way to go. And get the Elite if can - the US should be getting IPTV through Xbox a bit sharpish...

Oh, and palmer, i will batter you at Madden - no other living Englishman plays that as well as i do. (i'm kidding, obviously)

stephsmith said...

Yeah, why do we forward-thinking fans have to suffer because the episode slipped through someone's fingers on their side?

Jordan, Lindeluse is a little of both or victims of bad photoshop.

memphish said...

What you can't see in Jordan's photo is that Damon is actually a puppet sitting on Carlton's knee like this.

PalmerEldritch said...

so, uh, anyone know anything about furnaces? :\

my Sidewall Power Venter is loud as the dickens. blah.

trevor mcfur said...

I think that the part of that article talking about copyright infringements, etc, was just conjecture by the author. That's a fool's quest if they go that way; there's no way that they're going to stop spoilers being posted on the interweb, so all that they'll wind up doing is pissing off their fans. It's obvious that somebody leaked those finale spoilers, so they need to pull their own shit together and figure out how that happened. If it's gonna leak, it's eventually gonna find it's way online.

JonJon said...

ok palmer, what you need to do is take some jelly (grape works best) and including the jar, toss it in the furnace. Let is set for 14 7/8th hours, and it should be back to normal.


Also I have no knowledge in furnaces!

stephsmith said...

Furnace in June?
I need a nice, boring job like Jordan has. When you have to find a change of clothes at work, you know your job is too exciting.
Guess where I'm going tomorrow. Jasper. Or as my mom refers to it, Town. Dance recital.

JonJon said...

trevor, I think what the article was referencing about copyright infringement was when web site were posting video, pictures, and what not of Lost without the permission of ABC. Now that is illegal. And though they cannot shut down the website for the spoilers, they can shut it down because of the videos and pictures posted.

JonJon said...

From the article-

"in reality, ABC and other networks tolerate a lot of unauthorized use of copyrighted materials such as videos, logos, and pictures. Exercising their rights as copyright holders, Disney could make spoiler sites pay aesthetically for crossing the line, and in some cases, the removal of copyrighted material could conceivably cause a site to shut down. Unauthorized set photographs, the essence of many spoilers for instance, can sometimes be considered copyright violations."

PalmerEldritch said...

yeah, furnace in june to heat water for showers. other than that, it's never on. but when it's on, the sidewall power venter (which blows the nasty furnace air outside) shakes uncontrollably and makes a horrible noise.

home ownership is fun. :\

memphish said...

Sorry I have no furnace info. Palmer. My home ownership fun-ness of the day consists of a problem with my automatic gate the solution for which is going to turn out to be driving 40 miles round trip to take the part to the fixer guy because fixer guy's brother's wife had a baby yesterday and is not interested in coming to me to fix my problem. In the meantime, I get to open and close the gate by hand; hope the dogs (and crooks) don't figure out they can now open the gate and shell out big bucks for a new motor or a new arm or both.

Back to LOST: I cannot be properly called a LOST obsessive/freak/any other similar word, because I don't go to these lengths. Pun entirely intended.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

holli, replace the gate with a sonic death field ala Otherville.

memphish said...

Brilliant Palmer. I do like that design. With the dogs I can hope it works like it did on Smokey, merely repelling them. With squirrels, I'd hope it would fry them though I wouldn't like to clean up bloody ear squirrels every morning and like Kate they cold shimmy over the posts. With the number and brain power of crooks here in Memphis, I'd probably be cleaning up Mikhail type messes more than squirrels. I could make a cool sign though.

just remember to cut down all trees close to the area of the fence, don't want anyone acting like Super Kate

The last thing I want to deal with at work is people.

steph, i third that statement.

The Creed Thought about 1000 Island reminds me of a true story of a nurse my husband works with. Someone mentioned Gilligan's Island and she wanted to know more about it because she and her husband were trying to decide where to go on their vacation. My husband swears she was serious, and not blonde.

LOST Topic, not that the Sonic Fence of Doom for home use isn't a LOST topic, but do you think leaving the Island was really a bad thing for everyone or just for Jack and whoever is in the casket? Is Jack assuming that what's best for him is what's best for the group (again) or do you think we'll see all the LOSTies wishing they hadn't left? Kate didn't seem too unhappy about it, IMO.

Happy Doughnut Day! Krispy Kreme is giving out free doughnuts. I'm guessing my trip to take the gate arm is going to take me past Krispy Kreme.

Erica said...

Is there a new TLI coming out soon? I am dying to hear what Kim and Aimee have to say about the season finale.

FutureAlly said...

Holli, you mean there's a Krispy Kreme in your area? They've officially closed down all the Krispy Kremes in Houston, there is not a single one!

memphish said...

Poor Ally. I grew up in the deep South where there have always been Krispy Kremes. My friends in LA were astounded by that fact. The expansion didn't over expand here in Memphis, so yes there are still 2 Krispy Kreme shops here in town. One of them is near Graceland.

stephsmith said...

The official site doesn't mention it but here it says it's true. We have two here, of course not near me.

stephsmith said...

On second thought, that might be a good thing.

FutureAlly said...

I'm not a big fan of Krispy Kreme so it doesn't really bother me that there's not one around me, but it sucks for those people that like 'em. Another thing we don't have in Houston, KMarts. The nearest one is in a small town about 6 hours away. You know, for a big city, we sure are missing a lot of stuff!

JonJon said...

I know one thing, Krispy Kreme isn't as popular as it was when it opened.

memphish said...

Krispy Kreme went and got the big head and look what happened. Next it will be those freaking expensive cupcakes and then Pinkberry.

Funny Finale Recap.

I love those recaps

FACT: There is no chin behind Sayid's beard. There is only another fist.

trevor mcfur said...

When Krispy Kreme first opened here (Philly), it was a huge deal. No lie, people were camping out the night before so they could be first in line, and when it opened, people were buying donuts by the crateload. After that, they kinda flopped, and now they're all gone. We're just a Dunkin' Donuts kind of town.

MB said...

LMAO Jon :)

Yeah Trevor, same thing happened here in Portland. When they opened you'd have thought the place was giving out cash with the donuts - the lines were unbelievable. That lasted about a month, and then quickly died down. I think all the stores are still open, but I seem to recall they were planning on opening more than they actually did. Pretty good donuts though, I have to say.

trevor mcfur said...

I think they're good donuts, if you love the glaze. I don't know, though ... I'm not sure that I need glaze on my chocolate donut. And my cream is delicious as is, no need for a glazing

FutureAlly said...

that's what she said, trevor.

trevor mcfur said...

Ally, I believe that's what they call a fastball down the middle. :)

FutureAlly said...

ok that one's too easy

:)

PalmerEldritch said...

erica!

TLI has been postponed. i think kim said it'll be a week later than normal. so... monday-tuesdayish?

FutureAlly said...

can i just say, i love y'all's pictures. they're hilarious. i think my favorite is jordan's. possibly, palmer's.

PalmerEldritch said...

i stole my pic from the video that kim posted. oops! :)

trevor mcfur said...

I like mb's ... each time I see it, I think that it's really his Mac.

PalmerEldritch said...

stephsmith said...

I prefer Krispy Kreme glazed chocolate cake doughnuts to yeast, just in case anyone is wondering.

memphish said...

Are we getting some 'Lars tonight? My 'Lars prediction -- Ralph and Stevie will watch Children of Men before LOST returns.

memphish said...

Some Charlie Chuckles.

trevor mcfur said...

I don't get that Steph, I have to admit. Guess it's just what you grow up with. One thing KK does that DD doesn't, that I like, is they let you know when they've got the hot donuts. That's a tough lure to resist if you're driving by...

stephsmith said...

To me, Trev, A doughnut's a doughnut. And so what if it's a couple minutes fresher. It's gotta be hard as a rock before I'd pass it up.
I'm on a mission to bring good tv to these boring nurses here. I sent season one Lost home with a co-worker today. Next time I come back to work, season two of The Office is going home another pop-cultureless nurse.

FutureAlly said...

Poor pop-cultureless nurses. Yeah the same thing happens here with my co-workers. I've had to introduce some good TV into their lives. Some people are so TV-deprived.

stephsmith said...

Do they not realize what they are missing while they are out living their lives? They must assume tv hasn't improved since the days of Dawson's Creek and Party of Five.

trevor mcfur said...

True, donuts are always good, but hot donuts ... that's push-your-own-child-out-of-the-way-so-you-can-have-it-first good.

stephsmith said...

Dawson. What happened to him? I thought James Van Der Beek was going to be a big star.

FutureAlly said...

Maybe James Van Der Beek will make a comeback a la Matthew Fox.

PalmerEldritch said...

Don't scare me like that.

Someone locked James Van Der Beeken Sprocken up somewhere to keep him off my TV and I'm damn glad about it. And Katie Holmes has been abducted by Tom Cruise so she's off my TV too.

Good riddance!

actually, i think Dawson has some crappy scifi movie coming out. :(

stephsmith said...

Dawson and are doing a movie together.:)

stephsmith said...

I don't know what I'm doing wrong. The funny thing is, here at work they call me the computer person. I can't even make a clickable link. I was trying to say C Thomas Howell and Dawson are making a movie together.

FutureAlly said...

James van der Beek always kinda creeped me out. I never understood how some girls found him hot. He kinda had that teenage-serial-killer-look to him. Hopefully TomKat will be looking to adopt him and they'll get him out of our hair.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Funny reading the comments about Krispy Kreme. The exact same thing that Trevor & MB mentioned happened here in Seattle. The opened the first store maybe like 5 years ago & everybody went ape shit. Insane lines, people buying donuts like they were flashlights in a blackout. For about a good two month period after they opened you couldn't get away from the things. Everywhere you went somebody had a couple giant boxes of Krispy Kremes. People would bring them to work almost every other day. It was nuts. Now, they are just another place. I don't think they are in danger of closing down. It sure is funny looking back on things. I don't know what it is that get's people so insane when they open a store.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Oh, and thanks a bunch about that crack about my boring job, Steph. Things have been crazier than hell today. I think you jinxed me. You did this because of my picture, huh? :P

PalmerEldritch said...

krispy kreme is good. dunkin' donuts are good.

but where's Kim to tell us all about Tim Horton's?!

MB said...

Trevor/Palmer - LOL @ The idea of my Mac in a Cyber-suit - sounds like another sci-fi movie of the week:
Steve Jobs' ego finally breaks free and materializes into a separate evil entity (a la 'evil' Kirk), and before you can say 'iPhone' he has wrested control of Apple from the founder and has Cyber-Macs walking out of the plants. Each citizen is given a complimentary model (NO refusal of delivery allowed - i.e. the Cyber-mac walks to your house and bashes in the door). The invasion is here...

This is what Mac dreams about I'm positive.

memphish said...

I'm reporting in on donuts. I did drive past the Krispy Kreme on my rounds but they weren't hot, so I didn't stop.

Our paper did its weekly food column today on donuts around town in honor of National Donut Day. I think we're going to head out of town Sunday (to Destin Steph) via our favorite donut shop complete with an owner who throws donuts to you when you walk in at no charge.

memphish said...

For Kim and Casey and anyone else watching On the Lot.

memphish said...

We've really got to do something to stop this Knut bashing.

Holli

t-dot kim said...

OMG Palmer!! LOL... I was wrote a Tim Hortons' post before I went to work, but I've just checked my computer for all the hilarious replies I was expecting to get---but realized I only wrote the msg, not posted it :( (What's a loser)

Anyway, Krispy Kreme crashed and burned here in Canada. They were very popular for about a year, then quickly DIED. Tim Hortons' RUNS the donut show in Canada, I'm not kidding you when I say there is probalby one on every street corner. I pass 4 on my way to work. (My drive to work is about 7-10 mins long)

memphish said...

The negative responses on Monster Pig Boy's website are going to go up.

PalmerEldritch said...

here's what i think of Knut bashers

stephsmith said...

Holli, you have got to go to the Donut Hole. Have a german chocolate doughnut for me.

Mainly Waiting... BUT GRATEFUL! said...

i am incredibly sorry for saying this in the knowledge that it has probably already been answered, but i cba to look throught the past 600 posts...

no for the question, where is Kim and Aimee's podcast..? that is the highlight of my week...

Jordan from the 206 said...

Out of the entire article about the monster pig that Holli just posted, this one line cracked me up:

"Phil Blissitt purchased the pig for his wife as a Christmas gift in December of 2004."

Only in Alabama.

Sorry Steph. lol.

memphish said...

The short answer Mainly Waiting is . . . keep waiting. Kim says they are delayed about a week for good reasons. Heck, with 36 or so weeks to go until some new LOST, what's a few days to wait for Kim and Aimee.

Holli

Jordan from the 206 said...

Grateful, TLI will be up next week. Kim said it was delayed one week due to her and Aimee being crazy busy. Be patient. It'll be worth the wait.
