#2??

MB said...

no bathroom jokes please

MB said...

Kim - nice on the Alice in Chains :)

stephsmith said...

The logo is nice, but...
I hate to be negative.

It's not very girly. Not that you girls are girly. The logo doesn't say this is a female podcast. But what do I know.

Doc Artz says Eonline got it wrong.

MB said...

HEEEEYYYY - I was in such a rush I didn't catch the logo!! I like it - when are we getting shirts?

MB said...

Steph - on the heels of what you said - I posted this at the end of the last thread:

Tall guy - thanks for posting that info about the series end.

I must appologize - I mentioned this in the spoiler seg, but I had read (incorrectly apparently) that they were only going to do 2 more seasons (same number of episodes).

(sigh) I just hope those guys really do have something else in the works, and that its really...really good.

MB said...

Oops - am I the only one unable to download (in iTunes or here)?

Firefox says it can't connect to swtichpod

sorry Kim!

i'm 3 megs into the download now. glad i came home for lunch today. i could really use some TLI this afternoon.

kim! congrats on the Kablamo on the other thread. i knew you could get it one of these days. :)

nice logo, ladies. miss you both on the blogosphere. :(

Ralph- said...

working for me. i love the logo, i wish i had time to work on it, but i am in the middle of writing 2 separate scripts right now. i am hoping to wash my hands clean of one of them by Wed.

BEAUTIFUL! working both places now - thanks!

MB said...

Ralph - Scripts? (raises eyebrow) sounds intriguing - I didn't know you wrote. That's excellent

memphish said...

Steph, about your music problem on the new computer, I think you just need to authorize your new computer to play the music you purchased in the past. In iTunes, go to Store, then to Authorize Computer.

Holli

stephsmith said...

Awe, thanks Holli.
Why did I only get 15 mins of TLI?

t-dot kim said...

I had trouble uploading it to Switchpod last night, but this afternoon it was working...they may be having trouble with their server.

I was so exited to get the 108 Kablamo in the last thread--it took a while, but I did it! (Theme from Dora plays in the background)

Steph - I agree with the non-girliesqueness (ya it's a word) of our logo. I was expecting something like a solid black logo because for cafepress.com, they don't suggest you use much colour in your designs...we'll see what comes of it

Ralph- said...

MB-click on Casualty Friday on myspace

Jimmy said...

I like your logo -

No need to keep flogging the fact you are chicks? It's not what drives the show (imho)
Loving the episode, of course ;)
Cheers,
J

elias said...

The logo is very professional looking.

My e-mails are like chinese whispers - I'm sure I suggested rehashing classic episodes of Lost.

Cool podcast - that voicemail from Morgan!

t-dot kim said...

Elias...I realised I read your e-mail wrong--I was supposed to take that part out of the podcast, but I forgot. It was funny anyway.

Wesh said...

Will check out this TLI episode tonight, can't wait.

Me likes Logo.

elias said...

I laughed when Aimee's dog went into a frenzy.

Just suggesting things to keep the podcast going during the hiatus. I'm sure you've checked Jay&Jack's Ramblecast - there is some structure to each one with regular segments but they often go on for an hour about the most random shit. All very entertaining.

Wesh said...

I think that was a KABLAMO post for ya right there, elisas ^__-

Wesh said...

Sorry, I mean elias, how did my fat fingers mess that up?! :)

elias said...

I always fuck the KABLAMO up Welsh... I mean Wesh ;)

memphish said...

Martin from the UK sounded like a British Mac.

memphish said...

That Morgan call was so funny! Definitely should be in the clip show over the hiatus!

MB said...

HOLY CRAP!!!! WOW MORGAN! I'm FUCKING CRYING with laughter at work. BRILLIANT!!!!
I can't even tell my co workers what I'm laughing at because they WILL think I'm schizophrenic.

Kim and Aimee - I suppose it's pointless now to say this, but the emails were not me. At the rate this beast of a joke is going - I may actaully BE in a strait jacket by the time it's over - LOL

and RE: ALL THE 'MB' EMAILS - At this point, I feel like I'm Richard Dreyfus in "What About Bob" and no one will believe I'm not the crazy person - LOL

Obsidianrock said...

Just wanted to say I love the logo

MB said...

(wind whistles)...quiet around here today...

Great episode bosses! Didn't notice the tech difficulties at all.

I however - apparently need to do some tech tweaking myself - sorry folks for the audio quality. I will keep trying to get this right.

Master Bates said...

"what if I'm looking for a bathroom, I can't find one... and my bladder explodes?"

Classic Bill Murray.

stephsmith said...

Having difficulties getting the entire podcast. Morgan, hilarious!

MB said...

Steph -
I had difficulties too - but hang in there - iTunes finally downloaded it all for me (after 3 attempts and having it stop part-way through the download).

MB said...

BTW - the first SPLOG thread just passed 42 posts. WOO! It's past the numbers.

...alright...I was the 42nd post, but STILL...;)

Wesh said...

ah, after a few retries it's finally downloading slowly but steady.
I'll continue to watch "Goodfellas" in the mean time :)

HA! Happy Monday everyone.

I went to school with a guy whose last name is Bates, so we used to call him Master.

The MB call was so funny!

Hey, can someone help me with my blogspot account? I'm trying to attach the funniest baby picture of myself to my account so you can all laugh when I post. But I can't attach my photo. Can someone help? Happy to email or talk off-blog...

Wesh said...

surely it's just the server. They can't do anything about that.

memphish said...

Appaullo, is the picture already somewhere on the web or just on your computer?

Holli

Kirklain said...

for what its worth, the logo looks very hip and cool... i like it!

Kirklain said...

... but surely there should be some jizz in the background ;)

memphish said...

Yeah, Kirklain. They should have photoshopped in the picture for Wikipedia.

Holli

Wesh said...

No probs, it's easy:

1 - first you need to upload your picture to the internet. You can do that here.
Once uploaded you copy the link they supply you with. The last link works just fine (because you get several link formats and the last one is just the "clean format")
2 - then you come back to the blogspot and you click on your name.
3 - on the profile page that appears you click on edit profile
4 - then you scroll down to where you have to enter the URL for your image and you paste the image shack link you just made in step 1.

good luck.

Jimmy said...

Download Issues:
I've been looking at a few things and it seems to be switchpod. Be patient, nothing TLI can do. I got it all...though it took a while and crapped out once .

memphish said...

You can also post pictures in your own blog and save the posts as drafts or publish them. Here are instructions for that. And here's where the blogger instructions for adding a picture to your profile.

Looking forward to the picture.

I've finally got the download to work. Can't wait to listen! And Heroes tonight, woo hoo!

enjoyable podcast, ladies. i enjoyed MB's hilarious spoiler section with his high tech computer device. i though it was... Excellent...

come, smithers. post my comment.

Download TLI 19 here.

morgan said...

Hey Ralph, so does your blue-man pic mean you're a Howie Mandel fan? I thought it was Ozzy Osbourne at first, but then I remembered the best Fred Savage movie ever made (second and third place would be "The Wizard" and "Vice Versa").

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0097758/posters

Okay, I never saw "Little Monsters" but I saw the other two.

morgan said...

Aimee, you totally called me out on 'Martin from the UK' thing (I did it EXACTLY like you said). I was going to call in as a bunch of different people with "M.B." names but I was too lazy to do anymore. I only did the accent because Kim wanted more UK callers. At one point I was just going to call in with a freaky she-male voice (no offense to she-males) as Mistress Bunny or something, but I couldn't keep a straight face.

I'm glad you both liked my MB imitation. And when my computer said "jizz."

I honestly don't know who keeps posting under all the MB names here. I was thinking it was really MB, but I think we're both a bit tired of this thing now.

Thanks for another excellent show!

stephsmith said...

The only question I have is where did Syler get the power to freeze water?

Thanks Wesh. I was afraid I wasn't going to get my Mac fix this week.

trevor mcfur said...

Steph--

Remember that Sylar had that power way back in the beginning, before he was ever even on the show (he froze that little girl's parents ... I guess they were Molly's parents). He must have picked it up somewhere along the way, after he killed the telekinetic guy but before he was introduced on the show.

Peter seems to be making a run at Moninder for 'Dumbest Character on Heroes'. "OK, I know that I'm gonna blow up the city. What's going to happen is, I'm going to absorb the power from this nuclear guy, and then I won't be able to control it, and BOOM! Somehow, we gotta stop it. What, you think that maybe I should stay away from him instead of going to the exact place that I know he's gonna be? Why, what good what that do?"

PalmerEldritch said...

steph, sylar also played Winter Warlock in the comics at the Heroes web site.

i was screaming at my TV like Kim was screaming at LOST last week. Peter and Hiro both pissed me off to no end.

Peter can READ MINDS. He wants to know what Eric Roberts (Best of the Best!) and Nathan are talking about? Maybe you should use your freakin' mind reading powers, you chump. Thank goodness that he stopped greasing his hair though. Emo-Petrelli is cooler than Greaser-Petrelli. And the ladies like Emo-Petrelli more too, right?

Hiro was pissing me off to no end about the Sylar thing and the "I'll just look at Sylar for hours" thing. Yeesh.

trevor mcfur said...

I totally forgot that Peter absorbed Matt's power. Have we ever actually seen him use it?

t-dot kim said...

He "used" it by accident--when he first met Matt. Hiro pissed me off this week. KILL SYLAR! I don't think Peter is going to blow up, I think it will be Sylar--for that to be true he needs to kill Ted.

I really like Mohinder--I think he annoys me because he doesn't have a power, lol. Or maybe because he's not that great of an actor. But Peter, literally, has all the power in the world, and he's NOT using them.

MB said...

Morgan - Holy mother of brit accents that was YOU?!?! Dude...I bow...

I wonder how long people (I'm assuming it's still more than one person) will keep throwing out MB posts. This is amazing to me how long it's gone on, and I actually wish I could claim responsibility for them because they are a HELL of a lot more creative than anything I can think of. Kim - what were some of the names on the emails you got?

I should be keeping a list of all the names in case I ever need to enter the witness protection program. But on second thought it'd be pretty stupid to keep the same initials, wouldn't it.

Aimee - I loved your idea that my personality has splintered into all these different people, because it somehow seems so Lost-ish

I'm so tired - must sleep

morgan said...

I used by British personality on that one (Martin Barrington). Too bad, Kim & Aimee didn't buy it for a second!

Speaking of accents...

Kim, I heard your Canadian accent today. It's your o's (like in the word 'most' or 'chose.' You don't do the stereotypical "aboot" thing (rolls eyes). I love Canadians, so don't think I'm ragging on you or anything. It's cute! I thought you said that you're from B.C. Or is the Toronto accent creeping in? Oh, and I've been waiting to hear how you say 'progress' and 'south'--those are words that I kept noticing when I visited Vancouver. When you grow up in SoCal and visit another country for any amount of time, you start to hear your own accent after awhile.

Kirklain said...

a tad behind everyone else but i have eventually got the download... and will be waiting for me in the morning... night all!

JonJon said...

Jordan from the 206, did you continue my Raven poem, because if not Kim and Amiee you said your podcast that is was him. And I must say I'm hurt if it is so. :(

Anyways I've been sick and finals have been going on, so I haven't had the chance to take more time into this little project of mine.

Wesh said...

So we know now that there's official an end date been set for Lost. Super awesome! Can't wait to see one actionpacked, story driven episode after the other. That's crazy! At least I'd figure they'd do less filler-type episodes now, right? I think the writers are definitly skilled enough to give us solid content with each installment of lost.

Also a quote from Lindelof in Variety (source) [might be a little little bit spoilery, but I'm spoilerfree myself and didnt find it was that spoilery. It's just like a general direction]; he said:
"That number [48] is absolute...once you begin to see where we're going, I think the idea of sequels and spinoffs will completely go away."
Is he telling us they're all gonna die? :D

memphish said...

So did Sylar unfreeze time when Hiro was in his mom's apartment or did Hiro just wait too long?

I think Sylar's water freezing ability came when he stole The Govenator/Mr. Freeze's brain. Problem is no one knows it's missing.

Heroes was one of those necessary, but less enjoyable episodes moving people into place for the final 2 episodes--kind of like Stranger in a Strange Land though thankfully without Bai Ling. Why do they think stopping Sylar is going to stop the bomb when Ted is with HRG and Matt? Seems to me HRG, Ted, Matt, Peter, Claire are playing right into Linderman and Eric Robert's and evil mamam Petrelli's hands. And what does Micah have to do with any of it? And why won't they all die if they're all right there?

Well the good news is we should know in 2 weeks.

memphish said...

Palmer, I avoid the SPLOG. It's a personal choice. I'll email the link to MB and let him SPLOG it.

I've got our generator stuff all lined up for tomorrow. It should give Aimee a better name that her Oz Prison Bitch name.

PalmerEldritch said...

kablamo!

PalmerEldritch said...

ah-hem. well, i am getting pretty damned excited for tomorrow's LOST. think Naomi will have any more shocking revelations? think she'll tell anyone anything useful? think she's a Mittelos plant?!

trevor mcfur said...

I was wondering how Sylar 'freed' himself from Hiro too. Did he do it? Or did Hiro start to waver and time started moving again on it's own.

I didn't think last night's ep was the best either, I agree that it was one of those, 'put all the pieces in place' episodes. I was hoping for a little more from a sweeps episode. The scene where Sylar made the snowglobe was very cool though. Too bad he had to ruin it with the crazies.

t-dot kim said...

JonJon... I did say Jordon from the 206... I'm really off my game this week. How embarrassing. I'm very sorry. I'll make it up to you

PalmerEldritch said...

who played Sylar's mum and where have i seen that crazy biatch before?

stephsmith said...

I got the feeling that Hiro was intimidated by Syler and therefore his power weakened.
How creepy was that slight movement of his eyeball?
Hiro and Ando are my favorite couple.
Peter and Claire together are always endearing but their scenes didn't flow well or something.
Yeah, I guess that was the Heroes version of a filler episode. Not too bad but not near as good as last week.

stephsmith said...

Syler's mom was in Little Shop of Horrors. Adrie or Andrea or Audrie. She like a Tony-winning actress.

trevor mcfur said...

Oh, that's right, she was in the Rick Moranis version; she played Audrey (as opposed to the plant, called Audrey 2).

PalmerEldritch said...

steph, are you serious?! i totally thought so for about twenty minutes of the episode and then said "No way. That's too ridiculous." i should've stuck to my guns! :)

trevor mcfur said...

I love that movie, but I've never seen her in anything else. I thought that she was naggingly familiar last night too, but didn't put it together until Steph posted her message. That movie is like, 20 years old, and I guess that I think of her as young and cute instead of old and, ummm, not so cute...

PalmerEldritch said...

If Naomi's lung and ribs do heal up in two days like Mikhail said they would, do you think she'll ask anyone why?

Kirklain said...

Isn't Bai Ling meant to appear is another episode this season? or is that a thought just in my head?

memphish said...

Kirklain, you might want to check the SPLOG. I think it was Bai Ling's story that she had a multi-episode deal. I don't know how reliable a source she is.

Holli

morgan said...

Yeah, I thought I head Bai Ling was supposed to be in three episodes. Maybe she's in the finale (which can count as two)?

Kirklain said...

ahhh so it isn't jsut the voices in my head... good to hear!

trevor mcfur said...

I agree with Holli that Bai Ling might not be the most reliable source. She might have said that she was going to be in three episodes, but for all we know she might have thought that she was talking about the number of times that she'd peed that day.

Jordan from the 206 said...

What did I do? Oh man, glad Kim caught that jonjon. I don't want to get drawn into a whole mb imposter nonsense deal. lol.

PalmerEldritch said...

please, baby jeebus, no more bai ling.

unless she gets eaten by the DharmaShark.

memphish said...

I'd throw Bai Ling to a Dharma Shark though he'd probably just spit her out and saying that she was salty and it wasn't from swimming.

Holli

Jordan from the 206 said...

And yes, my last comment does imply that I have yet to listen to TLI this week, or the 'lars for that matter. Life has be busy of late. I hope to listen to both today during work if things aren't too crazy. I need my fix!

Heroes was pretty good last night. They did an awesome job with Sylar, making you feel sorry for him. When he wanted his mom to tell him that it's ok to just be normal and that he didn't want to kill millions of innocent people. But alas, he kills his mom in typical supervillian fashion and is now fully in evil mode. Good stuff. And is that Molly girl cute or what?

Ally said...

awesome logo. awesome podcast.

Kirklain said...

salty insides?!!!

PalmerEldritch said...

yeah, jack lost all coolness once he made out with a bai ling who tasted of some dude's IslandFlashback.

how's that for a metaphor?

JonJon said...

Ok, the reason why Sylar became unfrozen in time is when Hiro had the Katana and touched it against Sylar's neck. As soon as he get in contact with anything that is frozen it becomes unfrozen as well. That is my take on it!

MB said...

Hey Holli and Kirklain - I will have to look into whether Bai Ling is returning for the finale. I'll post if I find anything on the SPLOG later today.

Anonymous said...

that would be the best island connection ever if Jin catches a shark, and when he cuts it open to clean it, pieces of Bai Ling slide out just as Jack & Juliet are walking down the beach hand in hand.
this reminds me, i hated that episode.

Great episode of The Lost Initiative. Kim, Aimee, MB, Morgan... everybody was hilarious.

i can't wait for doomsday hippies!!!

andrew.

trevor mcfur said...

I hated that episode too. I think that what would happen, though, is that pieces of her would slide out, and no one would be able to tell if she was alive or dead.

Kirklain said...

surely it should Jin dad who catches Bai Ling... he's the fisherman.

ooh... just a thought... what if Bai Ling's mom is Jin's mom ... i mean they might share professions... and Bai Ling would be Jin's half-sister, and also jack pseudo-half-sister (as Christian shepherd has a fling with Bai Ling's mom, so also jin's pseudo-half-brother...


everyone is connected to everyone


my brain hurts now...

trevor mcfur said...

I think what you mean to say is, they're brothers from another mother.

Kirklain said...

not really... they have different parents, but Jin's mom had an affair/liason/cash-on-completion with Christian Shepherd...

trevor mcfur said...

I just like that phrase.

PalmerEldritch said...

Brothers from an Other mother?!

trevor mcfur said...

Not as bad as sisters from an Other mister!

Jordan from the 206 said...

I know there's a bunch of movie soundtrack/score fans here. I just got the soundtracks to the two Grindhouse movies, Planet Terror & Death Proof. Very good stuff. Death Proof is the typical Tarrantino obscure 70's comp & Planet Terror is the score done by Robert Rodriguez, which is great. It even has a couple songs sung by Rose McGowen.

I just got back from the car wash. I vacuumed up Morgan's iPod. She's gonna be so mad at me.

Anonymous said...

stressed at work so i'm going to play iPod shuffle. feel free to join me. (Sorry for the bad timing Stephanie)

Loren Connors - The Departing Of a Dream Vol. 4
Loren Mazzacane Connors is an old improvisational guitarist. He creates really beautiful, droning pieces that always feel quiet and contemplative even when he's wailing at top volume.

Ennio Morricone - A Fistful Of Dollars Soundtrack: Titoli - Nobody can or does deny Ennio Morricone his props as one of the premier soundtrack composers. He's put out such a huge catalog of music for a richly diverse range of films. His scores for Sergio Leonne are as inseperable as Clint Eastwood and the beautiful cinematography from the success of those pictures.

Large Professor - Get Off Da Bullshit
Second only to Pete Rock as my favorite hiphop producer. This is off of his unreleased (but oft bootlegged) album. It's from an era where hiphop wasn't as stringently ruled by sales and there was a lot of respect for craft.

Gorilla Biscuits - Stand Still
A funny song to come up on a Lost blog. It's a song about being addicted to television. I love the Gorilla Biscuits. You'd be hard pressed to find more energetic, upbeat hardcore. For me, they're also wrapped up tightly in high school nostalgia.

Albert Elms - The Prisoner Soundtrack: Mini Moke And Speedboat Escape
The Prisoner is such a great television show, my favorite for a really long time, because it's so unique. The music in the show is really awesome and benefits from being a strange coctail of classic orchestral pieces and 60's psychedelia.

Do Make Say Think - Auberge le Mouton Noir
a really outstanding post-rock group from Canada who play sweeping, thickly-layered instrumentals.

5 Style - Outer Space Canoe Race
group from the mid-90's with a lot of members of the incestuous indie-rock scene of Chicago. 5 Style was a very different project in that it sounds like Tortoise covering the Meters.

fIREHOSE - Mas Cojones
A great group with Mike Watt & George Hurley of the Minutemen, fIREHOSE often doesn't get the respect it deserves as the excellent rock group that it was because people are too hung up on them not being the Minutemen.

Madeline - The Piece That Fits
heart-breakingly sweet singer-songwriter stuff from Athens GA, she's part of the traveller-punk scene.

Diplo - Big Lost
I really like Diplo even though he's partly responsible for a lot of hipster musical trends that i hate. The stuff he produces himself is awesome downtempo jams. When he DJ's he puts together really great ecclectic sets of classic funk, hiphop & soul, bali-funk, baltimore club, and mash-ups, but, what most of the DJs that ape his style miss, he's always searching for new sounds and he genuinely likes the music he plays without all of the ironic posturing.

MB said...

Steph - Was it an iPod shuffle? They are so f-ing tiny now. I think they were actually MADE for small children, since that's about how small your fingers have to be to operate them - LOL

Jimmy said...

I am still sticking to my belief that the "Rattlesnake" or "Snake in the Mailbox" as Cuseloff once said is that Jack is actually a murderer.

Yes,...he murders Bai Ling...creepily too. That would really mess the show up.

Been out for a day...I see the Bai Ling hate still rules!

murphy brown said...

hahaha. that voice mail from "morgan" was hilarious. he's almost as good as that guy who does the spoilers with his mac.

PalmerEldritch said...

Jimmy,

Tricia Tanaka > Bai Ling

PalmerEldritch said...

oh. and how creepy are we talking about for the Bai Ling murder? wearing her underwear while choking her to death on a bed covered in money creepy? or just poisoned her so he dissect her creepy?

Jordan from the 206 said...

I am nearing the end of TLI. And I gotta say good show girls! You guys were on top of your game this week. Pure hilarity. Thanks for brightening my days ladies with laughter. :)

Mudd Butt said...

That morgan call was funny. Give that guy an award.

Jordan from the 206 said...

I would take Tricia Tanaka over Bai Ling any day of the week. Tricia Tanaka was pretty hot.

aimee in little rock said...

So sorry for the absence guys! My early weekdays are becoming my busy days. The blogspot explosion makes it so hard to play catch up too.

In summary, excellent show Dharmalars (as always). I know I don't always have to say that, but they always deserve to hear it I think. Wonderful music selection Kim. I love Redemption Song because it reminds me of Sawyer from Exodus. I mean James Ford. Whatever.

I LOVE the logo, but I don't know if its going to be too difficult to put on cafepress stuff! How are we going to be able to tell? Maybe I should order one and see how it comes out.

PalmerEldritch said...

bai ling scares me. and not in a good way.

trevor mcfur said...

I like playing iPod shuffle, so here's my list. I don't have time for any real commentary, though.

1) J.S. Bach, Suite for Solo Cello No. 1 in G Major, Yo-Yo Ma

2) The Killers, When You Were Young

3) Cracker, Good Times Bad Times ... so-so cover of the Zeppelin classic

4) The Police, Message in A Bottle (Live) ... this is from the 2-disk concert set; not sure what year exactly, but this is from the 'early' disc; it's so much less polished, but more raw and energetic, then the second 'later' disc

5) Nirvana, Drain You (Live)

6) Under Your Spell, from 'Once More, With Feeling' (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) ... anyone who wants to challenge my manliness for having this on my iPod -- I will fight you

7) J.S. Bach, Suite for Solo Cello No. 2 in D Minor, Yo-Yo Ma ... this album has maybe 20 different movements, out of 4000+ songs on my iPod; why 2 come up so close together in a random 10 is beyond me

8) J.S. Bach, Suite No. 3 in D Major ... WTF? I really don't listen to that much Bach. This is actually from the soundtrack to the movie Se7en; it is one of my favorite pieces of all time, and this is a beautiful version

9) Pearljam, Evenflow ... not sure why I still have any Pearljam on my iPod, I skip to the next song pretty much anytime one of their songs come up

10) Simon & Garfunkel, Late in the Evening (Live)

and because my list goes up to 11...

11) Blink-182, Dumpweed.

Anytime you can get J.S. Bach and Dumpweed on the same list, that's a good thing.

Welcome back Aimee! Not to be a suck up, but your presence makes the blogspot that much better. You've been missed.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Kimberly, I LOVE your British accent you do when you talk about Sky One. You sound exactly like the lady who does the Sky One promos. You should do a traffic report in that voice. Hahaha. I'd pay to hear you do a whole podcast in that voice. lol.

Bai ling to be killed?

i can dig that... as can probably Hurley

Jimmy said...

I'd take both Bai Ling, and Tricia Tanaka (Sung Hi Lee). Surprised not so many picked up on her Playboy days! I actually find them to be equally hot. I'm sticking to this!

But Palmer, as far as creepy goes...the wearing her underwear choking thing is fucking brilliant! I really do think (if I am right) that it would be something sinister. Not a crime of Passion (Jack jealous, kills her in rage). More the fact that Jacks biggest reveal is that he is one creepy motherfucker!

Has anything like that ever happened to a show we know of? Did a character make a turn ever that made them totally reprehensible overnight? Hmmm...

stephsmith said...

It was a shuffle. Grandmother gave it to her for Christmas. It was engraved and everything. It contained her legal and horror podcasts as well as her Weird Al music. Here I was thinking she'd lose it on account of it's small size. I have the number for the management of the car wash. Surely they can salvage it.

memphish said...

At this point I wish the Island boy scout would do something truly bad instead of just being a dumbass Juliet trusting, I've got a secret and I'm not going to tell you Kate pantywaist.

Can you tell I'm not happy with late Season 3 Jack. I won't more "you won't have to be disappointed for very long Ben," early Season 3 Jack.

MB said...

Posted a couple of things at the SPLOG (which the serious spoiler fans have probably already seen).

memphish said...

won't = want Damn I better get in game day shape before tomorrow.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Tricia Tanaka was in playboy?!! How'd I miss that?!!!

MB said...

BTW - thanks again Holli for the spoiler links. Was the Hairdo stuff b/c you're not a fan of Emilie De Ravin's doo?

Kirklain said...

ok.. new game "Survivor Lost"...

So the losties and others play Survivor: Jizz Island, the 20 contestants and tribes are:

[b]Team Shepherd[/b]
Dr Jack
Kate
Desmond
Ben
Charlie
Claire
Tom Friendly
Mikhail
Danielle
Ana Lucia

[b]Team Flock[/b]
James "Sawyer" Ford
John Locke
Hurley
Jin
Sun
Juliet
Sayid
Michael
Nicky
Paulo

so they arrive by plane onto JizzIsland, and their first immunity task is a physical test... row out to a buoy, grab the bag and one person to assemble what's inside.

Team Shepherd row out fast, with the brawn of Jack, Desmond, Tom, Mikhail and Ana Lucia (Claire and Charlie are whimpering in the middle)... whilst Team Flock do their best through Jin, Sayid and Saywer (Hurley tries but slows them down)... Team Shepherd grabs the bag, head to the beach and start assembling... by sheer force, Team Flock are not too far behind, having abandoned Hurley on the buoy. The task is to assemble a Kalashnikov rifle... whilst Mikhail steps up to plate for Team Shepherd, Locke and Sayid argue who should do the task, and 12.4secs latee Mikhail has finished. At tribal council, Paulo is voted off for needing the toilet.

who's next?!

memphish said...

Task 2 in Jizz Island Survivor is a mind fuck game and since Team Shephard is up a man they have to sit a person out. Jack chooses Ben to sit out because Jack is acting like late Season 3 dumb ass Jack.

The actual task is to talk one of your teammates into killing someone. Before Team Shephard can locate a weapon, Nikki sways suggestively in front of Michael using her pole dancing skills. Michael without even saying "I'm sorry" turns and guns down Bernard. Team Flock wins.

Ana Lucia is voted off Team Shephard because everyone has always hated her.

Holli

Kirklain said...

Task 3 for Survivor: JizzIsland

Bingo... the contestants work individually with numbers from 1 - 108, having to get 6 to win... the tribe with that winner is safe. Surprisingly, it takes only 6 call-outs for Desmond to win... his flashes must be on song today

Team Shepherd Wins... Team Flock go to vote off Michael who's been bitchin he wants to leave...

memphish said...

The winner of task 4 will be the team with the story of the worst parent. Team Flock wins in a landslide. In fact Team Shephard yields after Locke's kidney stealing story. If only they knew the rest.

Team Shephard votes to eliminate Claire who needs to take care of her baaaay-bee anyway.

Kirklain said...

Task 5: Survivor Jizz Island

With 8 people a piece, both Teams eagerly await the next challenge: Buried Treasure...

Given a large expanse of the beach to look for the treasure... the Teams start digging. This is where Hurley really excels in, and with the help of Sawyer propels Team Flock past the labours of Charlie and Team Shepherd.
Team Flock win!

At the vote, Team shepherd vote off Danielle who's great idea was to dynamite the entire area...

MB said...

Morgan - just READING your playlist makes me nostalgic! Sweet. Many of the same are on my iPod right now - LOL

MB said...

Wow Holli - LMAO. I AM a dormant Brewers fan (in honor of my late Grandfather), and I knew they were doing well, but I didn't know they were that generous to their fans. That's really showing the love, you know. ;)

stephsmith said...

iPod update: going to meet car wash manager in a little while to sift through the garbage. Wish me luck.

I'm never watching AOTS again. I'm offended by their anti-Lost politics.

PalmerEldritch said...

steph, what'd they say this time? and was Olivia Munn still mind-blowingly attractive?

Survivor Jizz Island Episode 6

In a cross-over, teams learn that tonight's challenge comes from The Amazing Race. First each team must fly to Okinawa Japan. Psyche there's no airport. In a shocking twist one member of each team must go home.

Team Shephard eliminates Ben. He kept staring at everyone with those bug-eyes, but would never tell anyone why. That leaves:

Team Shepherd
Dr Jack
Kate
Desmond
Ben - voted off Rd. 6
Charlie
Claire - voted off Rd. 4
Tom Friendly
Mikhail
Danielle - voted off Rd. 5
Ana Lucia - voted off Rd. 2

Team Flock had a tougher decision. Some wanted Nikki, but the hot thing saved her ass again. They considered Juliet and Sun, but the promise of mud wrestling allowed them to survive for another day. In the end Jin had to go because no one, not even Sun, could understand a word he said and Hurley was still mad about the ghost stories.

[b]Team Flock[/b]
James "Sawyer" Ford
John Locke
Hurley
Jin - voted off Rd. 6
Sun
Juliet
Sayid
Michael - voted off Rd. 3
Nicky

Whoa, mb ... that Muppets one, that's not available on iTunes is it? Might have to hit Amazon before the night is over!

Jordan from the 206 said...

Regarding Steph's anger with AOTS's anti-Lost agenda. I've noticed that it seems if you aren't a huge Lost fan, you think Lost totally sucks ass and has lost it. It seems to be pretty universal throughout the internet & media.

MB said...

Ralph
"I Palindrome I" AND "Kiss is on My List"... Quite the range - impressive :)

P.S. "Kiss is on My List" is on my iPod as well - along with "Istanbul"

stephsmith said...

Olivia is lovely. That dork of a co-host she has leaves a lot to be desired. According to him, no one even watches the show any more and the writers are inept and have admitted they have no idea where the show is going.

Got the iPod back. It was stuck in the hose.

Here's my shuffle:
1)Eternal Life- Jeff Buckley
2)It Ends Tonight- All-American Rejects Is this the most recent song I own?
3)He's Evil- The Kinks Part of my Lost collection
4)Seven Bridges Road- The Eagles A gift for my mom
5)Shine On You Crazy Diamond Pts 6-9- Pink Floyd
6)So Real- Jeff Buckley
7)I Want to Hold Your Hand- The Smithereens Watched A Hard Days Night for the first time tonight.
8)Stay- Dave Matthews Band Swiped from my hippy friend
9)Can't Get Next To You- The Temptations Love me some temptations
10)Every Little Bit- Patty Griffin Also swiped from my hippy friend.
11)One Love- Bob Marley Bought along with Redemption Song for my Lost collection.
12)Love Song- 311 A good cover song.
13)18 and Life- Nina Gordon My hubby likes her. If you like her, you should check out her cover of Straight Out Of Compton.
14)Wash Away- Joe Purdy Part of my Lost collection.
15)Speed of Sound- Cold Play Awe, Gwyneth is a lucky lady.

morgan said...

Ben & Ralph, congrats on being what's hot on iTunes! Whoo-hoo! "The 'lars" and "TLI" are the top 2 podcasts I listen to. Jay and Jack are good too, but sometimes they get a bit boring with the recaps and ridiculously absurd amount of listener feedback. Again, congratulations!

morgan said...

Ralph:

Did you grow up in Fullerton or somewhere else in Orange County? We're about the same age and I swear I went to junior-high with someone years ago that looked just like you. I went to school in Costa Mesa.

I'm excited. This episode is going to be super sweet.

Episode 8 on Jizz Island Survivor

Nikki excited that the team adopted her name suggestion tries to further consolidate power by forming an alliance to get her to The Final Four. She encounters a problem though when she fails to convince anyone that she is even on the show.

In a tear-stained confessional Nikki declares that she's leaving Craphole Island, Jizz or no Jizz.

The rest of the survivors are safe from elimination this week.

Episode 9 Survivor: Jizz Island

American Idol auditions... the "ever-so popular" show comes to Jizz Island, and the contestants are told to sing for their lives... Charlie, looks smug, thinking its in the bag, and to be fair does a great rock 'n' roll classic, only to be outdone by a iraqi ballad by Sayid, moving people to tears... but even this is not enough as Hurley cruises to first place with an uplifting latino vibe. On the down side, Sawyer's country roots see him plunge to the bottom 3, though he's outdone by Kate who tries to scream her way through... however, in last place, screeching like a cat is Juliet... she's eliminated before she deafens them all.

yeah, steph, i watched that preview for the episode and i am really looking forward to the episode.

and do we have some sort of Hippy name generator for today?

memphish said...

Ask and you shall receive Palmer.

Here's the
Hippie Chick Name Generator and the
Hippie Dude Name Generator.

And you can take a quiz to see if you are a hippie.

anyone predictions for tonight: BabyBen will come out of his mother alien-style...

I was thinking we could make Ben love interest predictions. I'm betting on a whole Oedipus thing. Ben kills Dad Jacob because of his love for Mom Rachel.

my guess is that Ralph Nader will alert the world to a problem with VW Bus brakes but before DHARMA can warn Roger, he flips the VW and dies in the jungle.
