t-dot kim said...

Hi guys...

I never want to edit a podcast again. I was going to kill myself this week. Regardless, enjoy. I think we're beginning to take a page from the S&S days, about 75% LOST content. (If you haven't seend the finale of The Office--for whatever reason--we talk about it...just so you're warned)

MB said...

luck be a TLI-cast pablo.

No one will forget you around here

Johnny said...

I for one appreciate all the work, Kim.

Once I finish work I'll get it all sucked down the pipr onto my little noise box.

Yes!

MB said...

Thanks VERY much for your work boss! So sorry it was a bitch! I have enough trouble getting 12 mins together for god's sake - you do indeed work your ass off for this.

Johnny said...

Pipr?


It's PIPE!

PIPE I tell you!

Ralph- said...

YESS!!

Pablo said...

Sweet MB, hey I don't wanna take any attention away from TLI, but I JUST heard R&B's 'cast with Jorge, OMMMG. I was so giddy, so surreal, bow bitches!

question for kim and or MB, what do you guys record into? what software? I heard r&B mention troubles with their template. no reason, just curious.

Jacob vs. Locke

Michael Emmerson Interview

PalmerEldritch said...

pablo, i like the R&B abbreviation. but that makes me think of them as Rocksteady and Bebop from TMNT for some reason. which is pretty sweet in and of itself.

kim, thanks for taking the time to record and edit a podcast for us.

Heroes thoughts, kim?

Jordan from the 206 said...

Kim, you are amazing. Don't for a second think your efforts go ignored. I can't even imagine what you go through editing TLI. And as for only 75% Lost, I like it like that. You guys are great when you go off topic. It's what many of us like about you guys and differentiates you from the multitude of overly-analytical lostcasts out there. It's the reason those big shot Dharmalars became so popular. Well, that and Jay & Jack mentioning them every 5 minutes. lol. Thanks again Kim. You are the best!

MB said...

Pablo -
I use Garageband for recording an editing, and Wiretap for recording Mac's voice(s) (puts it into an mp3 - nice little app). I have had some issues with sound quality output (as I'm sure has been obvious), but I use a crappy tiny-ass mic now, so I'm sure that's my main problem. I need to spend a few bucks on something a little better

t-dot kim said...

Opps, this one should work Jacob vs. Locke

Malcolm said...

sweeeeeeeettttneeeeessss!

Ralph- said...

someone posted an animated LOCKE/JACOB overlay on our myspace comments. it is totally terry o'quinn

t-dot kim said...

Palmer, I felt let down by Heroes. "Five Years Gone" felt more like the season finale. Why didn't Peter use his powers? Can't he use different powers at the same time? It seemed like everyone--EVERYONE--was too busy watching Peter and not DOING anything to help him. It was nice to see my girl Simone, I wish she'd be back for good.

So there's someone more evil than Sylar?? A lot of foreshadowning for season 2. WTF is up with Grandma Petrelli, what's her damage?

*Sigh* Oh well, I still heart Heroes

Pablo said...

Hey MB, i've never actually heard your segment lol, i avoid you like the plague actually. But i saw ralph say his setup is shite, when infact their podcast sounds AS good as j&j's to me.

lmao @ rocksteady & beebop

Anonymous said...

The Scott & Steve Famalam really spoiled us this week. Looking forward to listening to the new Lost Initiative.

-i now have the whole Heroes marathon + the finale on my DVR, so i'm having to skim the blogspot these days. I've only seen 2 episodes of Heroes, so everything is a spoiler to me. I decided I couldn't wait for the DVDs to take another stab at the show.

-Kim, i'm afraid of clicking on your links. I'm completely spoiler free for the finale. I even turned MB off last week (sorry, i'll go back and listen after the rattlesnake bite)

-I watched the "Lost: Answers" recap show last night. I really enjoyed it actually. Having Cuseloff on the show makes it interesting because it helps illuminate their thoughts on certain characters and plot points and puts to bed a bunch questions raised by the internet community overanalyzing the show.

-Happy to see everybody on the thread!

andrew.

Ralph- said...

Aimee, those are called Ivy Caps. they are a style of hat that i wear. i hope that you dont think that i am a Grandpa.

Pablo said...

Hey Kim, my buddy in Toronto said you guys' taco bell serves french fries. Say it aint so!!?

elias said...

Appreciate the effort you put in to recording/ editing, Kim. Cheers for the playlist requests and for smuggling some Clash in there too.

PalmerEldritch said...

kim, yeah. nice to know we're thinking the same thing about heroes. hopefully, next season will be as good as this season and i can forget about being disappointed with the finale. i really do think we're spoiled by LOST's great finales.

EW Article on Heroes Finale

Jordan from the 206 said...

I agree with you Kim. Five Years Gone did seem much more finale like. I think Peter wasn't able to fly because he was losing control of everything. And it's a possibility that he might not be able to use more than one power at once. I don't remember ever seeing him do so.

I think what made this episode a tad bit underwhelming is that it played out as expected. We're so used to Lost's "You think you know, but you have no idea" reveals that it seemed a bit of a let down to not have a huge shocker.

There were a few things I did like in the episode. It was pretty cool to see Nikki take control of her powers and step up against Sylar. And it was cute to see her, DL, and Micah sorta take in Molly when everything was going crazy. Yeah, I don't know how Parkman can survive all those gun shots. When Mr. Bennett told Peter his name, I was all like, "ok, now he's gonna die."

I'm really looking forward to finding out who Molly was talking about. Is this foreshadowing for the new big baddy in season 2? If so, where is Sylar going to fit in the scheme of things? One thing I could've used, a better cliffhanger/intro to volumn 2. Hiro being back in time doesn't get me too excited. I'm also looking forward to the 6 origin story episodes that they are going to do during the offseason. And apparently they are going to have fans vote as to who they want as a part of the show. They probably won't incorporate them until season 3. But that's still cool and gives us something during the hiatus. Anybody know when those ep's might be?

t-dot kim said...

Taco Bell does serve fries!!! They're awesome. I was surprised that you didn't have them in the US. Fries Supreme = wicked

Pablo said...

lol thats so wierd to me, i was on the phone with my bud, and in passing i mentioned that i was eating taco bell, and he asks about fries, haha i asked if he was joking. I questioned him for about 20 more minutes 'cause i thought he was fulla shit. Wierd!!

PalmerEldritch said...

taco bell serves fries? where do they fit the grade D meat into the fries?

if there are no bowel shaking ramifications, why eat anything from Taco Bell?

Jordan from the 206 said...

You guys don't dip your fries in mayonaise, do you? I traveled throughout Europe and was seemingly all over the place people were dipping their fries in giant globs of mayo, not ketchup. I was at a McDonalds in France and they gave me a bunch of mayo packets with my fries. I was like, "what the hell is this for?" lol.

t-dot kim said...

At McDonalds in Australia they serve beets!

Pablo said...

Palmer - Nothing, and I mean NOTHING gets my stomach turning like a good #6 from taco bell.

Pablo said...

Jordan - Royale With Cheeeeese!

memphish said...

I think Molly was talking about Sauron right? I'm not a big LOTR person, so maybe I got the name wrong, but when Frodo wears the ring, Sauron can "see" him if I recall.

Jordan, could be on the multi-power use. Still doesn't make sense to me much less that the radioactive fallout wouldn't affect the city still (kind of like back in Texas), but I'm ignoring that point. Why do we cut Heroes so many more breaks than we do LOST?

Holli

memphish said...

For the French Fry discussion there's a restraurant in NYC and I heard in London with nothing but fries and dips.

I love me some Dre calls. 490 podcasts on his iPod, now I don't feel so bad.

TLI coming up. I'm saving Jorge for post snake.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

french fries are pretty good with mayo. and salt and vinegar. well, not all together... :\

kim, beets at mickey d's? what the hell? are they deep fat fried or something?

t-dot kim said...

I really don’t know how they’re prepared. I remember that when I was in OZ, they asked if I wanted beets on my burger. I was horrified.

elias said...

LOL the Office discussion with that James Blunt song in the background.

also the Englishman did us proud with the donkey farm banter - lovely stuff.

Jordan from the 206 said...

That's hilarious. Mmmm. Beetburgers. I'm sure Dwight Schrute would be proud.

Pablo said...

makes me see emily de ravine in a new light......

Jordan from the 206 said...

So I frequent one other forum from this blogspot. It's football related, pertaining to the Seattle Seahawks. Anyway, there are subforums and there is a thread about Heroes on the offtopic one. I'm reading people's comments on last night's show (which btw are a lot more positive than here. i wonder what that means? probably that we here are overanalytical dorks who need to chill. lol) and anyway, I get to this comment:

"I don't think we've seen the last of the Patrelli brothers. And the really cool thing about next season? Claire will be LEGAL!"

lmao. But I do agree. ;)

Jimmy said...

Kim,

as someone who lived in Oz and NZ for a long time, I can tell you there is nothing better than beets on a burger! In fact, McDonalds in NZ used to have (maybe still do) the "Kiwi Burger". Beef, tomato, onions, the usual, but the gloriousness of having a slice of beet and a runny egg :) God, I love egg burgers (another NZ speciality).

t-dot kim said...

I don't think I can stomach beets...

...I can give it a try.

ttyl
going flyin!
~K

Jimmy said...

I'll also send sympathies and Kudos to both MB and Kim with the editing hassles.

Yes...I can totally relate. it either goers OK or is a complete disaster. The worst was hen I did the Lost Score segment for "Tricia Tanaka is Dead" it took me unbelievably 11 hours straight. It nearly drove me to tears. On the bright side, it was the episode I got the most positive feedback from...I think a lot of that had to do with the fact it was all about Hurley.

MB...you asked via email ages ago, and I am a terrible writer. To overcome DRM issues in GarageBand/iTunes, I just play the tracks off my iPod via "line in input" and populate the tracks that way.

Malcolm said...

my friends name is

Michael
Barnes

Malcolm said...

at about 1:14 mins, youre talking about a lot to fit in in an hour finale. you missed a great opportunity to say thats what she said.

aimee said thats a lot to fit in there

how could kim miss this great opportunity!!?!?!!

Jellymanianos said...

palmer - sorry about mixing you up with mb on the last thread - it's just that you normally speak the most sense!
mb - you crack me up man.
everyone else - love you.

PalmerEldritch said...

Aussie Burger Recipe

i want one. and maybe some Pepto afterwards.

Pablo said...

11 hours jimmy?! Wow. You do an amazing job man, I love your segment, it's rapidly become a must-have.

Malcolm said...

mb. i love your segment. it made me break my spoiler freedom. hats off to ya, mb, and mac.

milt bailey said...

I 2nd that comment! MB's spoiler segment is the best part of TLI! I'm thinking him and mac should get their own spin-off!

memphish said...

I thought Juliet lied to Sun about going back into the Hatch to make sure everything was back in place when in fact she was making the tape. Kim and Aimee think she may have been lying about the DOC. Any other takes?

Holli

Pablo said...

=( i'll take your word for it guys.

Pablo said...

I think she's lying about the DOC also.

Pablo said...

im 50/50 on wether or not she lied about TLG being flooded.

MB said...

Still can't finish listening to TLI -grrrrrr ;( f-ing work! - lol

Kim and Jimmy (and anyone else who's been) - props to all who visit the land down under and talk about it! It receives eternal mental sunshine from me as it is where my wife and I hooked up. Always love talking OZ & NZ. Jimmy/Kim when were you guys there?

That said - I still don't think I can do beets on a burger - the rest of that receipe looks pretty good actually.

Jimmy - thanks! I had forgotten about asking that question! lol - good man!

Malcolm & Jellyman - thanks much! you people keep my Lost experience excellent!

Milt Bailey....(sigh)....just when I thought it was safe on the blog again - the MB names have become a staple around here, they may never die. lmao!

MB said...

Oh and also - Holli - I didn't think Jorge gave anything away. Am I wrong? Someone correct me before I send an innocent into the jaws of spoilerdom on accident

Pablo said...

No, Jorge didn't give anything away.

MB said...

BTW K&A - I'm liking that logo more and more everytime I see it (and I liked it at first too).

Pablo said...

hey MB, everytime I look @ your little "Don't Panic" logo I sing "Homes, places we've grown, all of us are done foooooooor - and we live in a beautiful worrld"

Anonymous said...

Jorge Garcia mentioned something filmed for the rattlesnake. It doesn't give anything away but it gives you a big stretch of land to put a ballpark in.

andrew.

Jimmy said...

MB,

Where in Oz did you meet your wife?

I've joked my life can be cut into quarters. The short version is (approx)
0-10 England
10-20 NZ
20-30 Europe, NZ, Australia, USA
30 - 40 USA

I have 2 citizenships, and 4 permanent residencies. If Dad wasn't an engineer, none of this would have happened. They (Mum, Dad, Brother) all live in Australia now.

Listening to TLI right this minute...been a busy one today!

memphish said...

Thanks for the spoiler clearance MB. At this point I'm saving it because of scheduling issues. While I'm not as backed up podcast-wise as Dre, I've got to pick and choose heading into finale night. I'd rather listen to predictions afterwards to see if they are right than get some idea in my head about what might happen. I'm trying to perform a Haitian mind wipe on my expectations for tomorrow.

Holli

MB said...

Pablo - I'm an ignoramus apparently - is that in reference to Coldplay?

jayhawk said...

One more thank you for your work, Kim. Listening now & I just heard the ghostwatch call. Pure hillarity. Looking forward to the mb segment at the end.

MB said...

Jimmy,
My wife and I officially met at college, but we were both on an overseas trip through the school when we started hooking up. It was a whirlwind through the two countries, but it was 6 months in my life I (obviously) have epic memories of. We just had some friends move to Aukland, so I'm trying to think of how I can take my family there someday.

MB said...

Jayhawk - this is so incredibly lamely late - but you paid a compliment a few threads back and I don't think I ever thanked you - cheers!

memphish said...

Is Aimee doing her dishes during the discussion of Kim's birthday?

Holli

jayhawk said...

No problem, mb. I appreciated all of your warnings on the current segment - been avoiding the major stuff that's out there. Sadly, that meant not listening to it all this time, but at least I got to enjoy some mb-mac banter. Helped make the work day end well.

Pablo said...

Yeah MB, coldplay.

Pablo said...

you're no ignoramus though!

PalmerEldritch said...

jayhawk, kablamo that 69th post.

re: australian burger toppings
if you're going down under should you beet your meat?

/obvious joke
//ashamed
///but not too ashamed to post it

MB said...

I'll KABLAMMO your punchline Pamler - lmao! good one

Pablo said...

lmao palmer Budumchhhhhhhhhhh

jayhawk said...

Thanks, palmer - can't believe I blew my first kablamo opportunity. Good thing mb has my back and you all are so forgiving.

Belated KA-BLAMO?!

MB said...

KABLAMMOS are like hugs - always welcome

elias said...

jayhawk - who do you reckon tomorrow night? Rossineri all the way ;)

jayhawk said...

elias - Only if we spot them 4 goals this time. ;) Seriously, I'm amazed that Liverpool can be so mediocre in the league and so good in europe. I'm confident we can win, but I won't be surprised if we lose. Taking the afternoon off work to watch it live. And with Lost goodness in the evening it's shaping up to be a pretty sweet day either way.

Anonymous said...

TLI was great today. Nice to see that you girls haven't let success go to your heads like those Starmalars.

elias said...

I'd be in no shape to watch Lost after the biggest sporting event of all time. I will be cheering the Reds on of course.

Heroes was quite lame - I was looking forward to a bloodbath. The Hiro thing in the end was good though.

stephsmith said...

Elias, so nice to hear you.
Wow! I have nothing else to add.
Tomorrow. Finale.
Go Blake.

morley bogdonavich said...

hey, i can actually hear the music this week! good on ya kimbo! always love me some seal.

stephsmith said...

Kim, I love this logo.

PalmerEldritch said...

argh! i'm letting my girlfriend borrow my laptop and my neglected desktop refuses to download TLI either through iTunes or through the link on the blogspot main page.

it pains me so.

memphish said...

Cool idea I stole from another blog -- what if Jack has "the sickness?" He looks like hell, is pulling major crazy Jack faces and isn't the most rational guy in the world as Aimee's Jack rant early in TLI proves. Maybe Danielle will shoot him too. They didn't manage to take her gun away from her did they?

Anyone have any ideas about games we can play tomorrow? I don't have any good generator ideas. There isn't a "Stalking Neurosurgeon Son of an Alcoholic Asshole" Name generator anywhere I can find. And if there was, we'd all be named Jack Shephard.

Holli

Jordan from the 206 said...

So I got a theory. It's not entirely thought through, so bare with me. The Looking Glass station's logo is a white rabbit, right? White rabbit = Alice in Wonderland, The Looking Glass = the rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland. Why & how? I have no clue. Does the looking glass station look into the "real world"? I don't really know what I'm getting at here. Just something that hit me while listening to the girls today.

memphish said...

Jordan, I definitely think that TLG is the way the Others get onto the Island. I don't get how it works, but I think when Juliet drank her happy OJ she was brought to TLG, put on the sub and then woke up at the dock.

So my theory on Michael and Walt is then that the heading 325 took them to TLG. I don't know what they found when they got there, but I'm sure Ben does. I'd guess they found Bonnie and the other one who gave them happy OJ and sent them back to the real world.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

phew! feed's working again. love it.

memphish said...

Good news Palmer. And more good news -- I was able to locate some generator stuff.

I hope Kim's favorite wins DWTS tonight. My son spent the night with my mother last night and now he's watching DWTS. 2 hours! Sheesh. I'm glad I have a computer and another TV.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

i think TLG just lets them communicate from WonderLand (the Island) to the Real World.

it's great to hear from Aimee and Kim. the JizzIsland/dynamite stuff is hilarious.

stephsmith said...

So do I, p.
It took me far too long to figure out what DWTS stood for.

Johnny said...

GREETINGS! Ghostwatch here. Thanks for the kind words aimed in the direction of my bizarre wandering ramble. Note how my voice wanders from well-spoken orator to EastEnders with nary a pause.

Actual LOST talk:

Sorry to paste in stuff I put on another forum but I can't be arsed to reword my reason behind Charlie's swimming ability so open your eyes extra wide to fit this massive pasting in:

===============================
Physics, guys!

Jump in water holding big weights - go downwards

A good few feet down release weights - pressure makes you go upwards again and you can steer yourself with feet.

You don't need to swim to do that - people who say they can't swim merely mean that they can't maintain a position on the surface of the water without sinking. Since the whole plan is to sink anyway then you only have to worry about coming up. So the different pressure pushing you up coupled with the fact you have a solid surface above you (ie silly underwater hatch) means even a non-swimmy guy can perform this feat without accidentally going all the way to the top again. The very reason he has the weight in the first place is even a top notch swimmer wouldn't be able to fight the pressure pushing them upwards without weights.

NOW - making the best use of whatever oxygen you have in your lungs is a totally different matter.
===============================

Also - about the flooded station. I don't think the question is really whether Juliet was intentionally lying. The question is actually: has the accuracy of Desmond's flashes fallen off? I guess we'll have to wait and see if the place does actually flood before Charlie hist the emergency plunger.

Well - talk at you all soon.

JG

Ralph- said...

Once Charlie dumps the weights, he definitly swims. he looks like a full on swimmer. even jorge said that he appeared to be swimming.

Ghostwatch The Great said...

Oh, man. I only posted it on the other forum as the theories were starting to get a little strange.

If I'm being honest I'm more on the side of "whoops" on behalf of the production team.

Also, note my modest new name.

What about my Desmond thing, Ralph-O?

memphish said...

Ghostwatch, I enjoyed the call on TLI today. Good, funny stuff.

I'm greatly afraid that Charlie's willingness to swim is somehow related to Desmond's key turning. Time travel hurts my head though. I'm willing to write it off to mere sinking and survival searching for air, but I agree with Ralph that Charlie looked like he was swimming.

As for Desmond, I think his interpretation of his flashes have always been shaky at best, and I think that the swat on the head with the oar will stop them.

Glad you've found your way to the blogspot. I'm impressed with your late posting. It must be the middle of the night in the UK.

Late TiVo alert, Jorge is on Kimmel tonight. I'm going to trust that someone will have it on YouTube or Lost-Media for my hiatus viewing pleasure.

Holli

Ghostwatch The Great said...

It is currently a little after 3:40am here in Ye Olde London Town. I an not a normal man.

Are you suggesting the Desmond Fixing Crap Throughout Time theory?

I like it but then you get into the can of worms that linear time being what it was any fixing would still have happened prior to the presious assertion that Charlie "doesn't" swim.

I've given it some thought and I think he can now swim because he was fortunate that the sonic fence's voltage wasn't set at a lethal level.



Eh?

trevor mcfur said...

Tomorrow night can't get here soon enough. I just spent 5 minutes staring at the link to the detailed spoiler page on the dark ufo site; fortunately I was able to fight off the temptation to click it. I hope that it's busy at work tomorrow, more time working means less time surfing for trouble. That's the first time I've ever said that...

memphish said...

Yeah Ghostwatch, I'm suggesting that Desmond did something to time whether it's help or hurt I don't know. Like I said, I don't understand how multiple time lines could work in either of my Woman of Science or Woman of Faith worlds. I'm not a Woman of Science Fiction despite my recent forays into Heinlein.

Trevor -- stay strong! 24 hours from now all will be revealed -- for Season 3! Yeah! Awwww! Mixed emotions.

Holli

trevor mcfur said...

I've downloaded the iPod Lost game to try and keep me distracted ... unfortunately, so far it's lamer than the Peter/Sylar throwdown. Must turn off comuter...

stephsmith said...

Enjoyed your call, Ghostwatch.
mb, I like the way you gave folks pleennnty of time to decide if they really wanted to be spoiled or not.
I think we're over-thinking this Charlie doesn't swim issue.
No good tv tonight, except for The Shield.

PalmerEldritch said...

i'm reiterating the "charlie stopped being such a wuss and manned up to save his woman" theory. it's a lot easier than time travel hijinks.

how the hell do you spell hijinks?

mb, i'll listen to you and mac after 11 tomorrow night. not that it isn't freakishly tempting.

p.s. i'll also second my "charlie don't swim but the dude can sink" theory. kind of a "that wasn't swimming; that was sinking with style!" theory.

Ralph- said...

Ghost, i think that the place will flood, and desmond would try to save Charlie before he dies, but the problem is, is that charlie knocked him out.

So charlie caused his own death.

Anonymous said...

Great podcast ladies, but - and I hope you don't take this the wrong way - I'm getting a little tired of Aimee's anti-Jack vitriol. Just wouldn't mind if you toned it down a little -- we get you hate Jack but there's little point constantly re-iterating it when we already get it. I was sensing that even Kim felt a little bit the same way by the end. But yeah, otherwise, great work, and I hope you don't mistake a little criticism for hate-mail because I very much enjoy your podcast.

-J

Pablo said...

goodnight people.

t-dot kim said...

Hiya! Holli - Aimee was getting a cup of coffee during my b-day rundown

Steph - I love this logo the best

Ghostwatch - LOL! Welcome.

MB - I was in Australia for 3 weeks in December 2001 for my cousin's wedding. It was AMAZING. I was in Melborne for 2 weeks and Sydney for 1 week. I loved it! My winter was their summer.

Elias - great catch on the James Blunt during our Office speak...we kinda got off topic for a while :(

All my shows are comiing to an end!! The Office, Heroes, 24, DWTS is over and my pick from the beginning won! Apolo!!! AI is wrapping up tomorrow, and Jordin (my long lost sister) WILL win! Tomorrow LOST will be amazing!

*Sigh* then I get a summer of really bad Canadian reality show knock offs.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Kim, I think you're right about your long lost sis. She was pretty dang good tonight. I totally know what you're saying about all your shows ending. Same here. But in a way it's almost a relief. Things are so hectic and crazy in life, sometimes I feel a prisoner to my fav tv shows. I could probably use a couple months off. Although I'm sure I will be whistling a different tune in a few weeks. lol. And I agree with Steph. This logo is top notch. The losties in the letters really does the trick. Big ups to the dude who designed it.

jj said...

im a idiot because as an aussie I had no idea what you where talking about with beets on a hamburger!

Then I realised we call them beetroot and every second person can't get enough of it. Not just on their burgers but every day as a part of a meal. Whenever we have a barbie (almost every day in summer) beetroot is always served and i'm glad to say i've never had one in my entire life.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Kablammo for JJ.

You aussies and your beets. lol.

Jellymanianos said...

For fuck's sake, bloody foreigners coming and wasting all the kablamo!
Elias - Milan to win tonight, pretty comfortably i think, 3-1.
mb - you still crack me up man.
Ghostw t great - what the fuck are you doing up so early - stay off the pills and get some rest man. There's a busy day ahead. Got to sort out 3 crates of Stella for tonight's big match, etc. (i'm a spurs fan really, but you've got to back the english teams..)

MB said...

g-d DAYUM! i FINALLY had time to finish listening to TLI. whew! what a day.

Laughed pretty hard K&A.

First of all - MACE!! yay - thanks for calling! My long identity crisis is over (right?) and I can cancel the therapy sessions I had begun, because started to think maybe I really do have schizophrenia and was unknowingly calling up TLI as my alter-ego(s). So thanks MACE, for sparing me my sanity, as well as a n f-load of $$ ;)
Also - I apologize for calling you Mayes on the SPLOG and on the podcast (and maybe here too) - don't know what the hell I was smokin'.
OH - and also Mace - SERIOUSLY...your initials are MB?!?!?! wow - then yeah Aimee, I am also curious as to just how many of TLI's listeners are MB's - this could be a little strange - lol

I must disagree with anonymous J re: Aimee's Jack rants (this one in particular), I was laughing my ass off walking the dog (making everyone who passed me a bit uneasy I'm sure). I am a Jack fan, but I love listening to Aimee pour it out of her. It's like listening to a stand-up comic vamp for a minute - hilarious. Never doubt where TLI gets it's SAS from.

Ghostwatch - funny stuff - this was one of those things in the podcast that made me laugh on the dogwalk and made some nice passing mother and kids look at me like perhaps they should increase their velocity moving away from me - lol

And - re: summer podcasts - I AM going to be keeping an eye out for any news about Season 4 (which I can't imagine will be plentiful yet - if any even exists), and if there is something to report - I can put a segment together.

As far as ideas for the dynamic duo for SUMMER podcasting - I was listening to you guys on your first ever effort (titled "Something Special from the Lost Initiative" - true say indeed), and I loved the idea of the "Ask a Lost Girl" segment - where you lovely ladies take random questions from your adoring fans. Sounds like perfect fodder for off-season podcasting - a million topic themes are already swimming through my head (if you wanted to THEME it up).

Anyway - you guys rock as always - thanks for the effort and time you put in to put smiles on many faces!

Ghostwatch The Great said...

Aw, shucks. Thanks for all those, as the kids say, "big ups" - but I didn't do nuthin special.

I was just talking "the bollocks".

tall guy said...

Ghostwatch.

Iain Lee, is indeed, a talent free zone.

Ghostwatch The Great said...

Oh, and the camera move I talk about during the "I actually have something slightly worth saying" portion of my call is visible in the one-off UK Halloween drama Ghostwatch (just stick that in a search engine and you'll find loads of tasty stuff). Short of pointing you at a link to a naughty illegalism or ripping the scene onto YouTube I wasn't sure how best to describe it until I found this on a website. It's basically the Jacob camera move in reverse (I'm not saying they nicked it - it just made me smile with "The Recognitions":

===================================
I had noted Pipes only four times during my first viewing, all pretty overt: that initial videotape, the opening of the storeroom, in a burst of static, and one brilliant moment when the cameraman turns around in the girls' bedroom, passing Pipes in a quick swish-pan... then when the camera snaps back, he is gone. Great moment.

tall guy said...

My thoughts on where Michael and Walt went. They were picked up by the sub and taken to the Looking Glass, from where they went back to the world.

Ghostwatch The Great said...

World - don't hate us for Iain Lee. In all fairness I've sometimes found him "slightly" watchable when he's on a subject he slightly understands (videogames etc) but even then he just grates slightly. He must have an amazing deal with Satan to remain in such steady employment despite a lack of charisma or any affinity for the subject matter he's talking about.

At least on a podcast you don't gaze upon his hideous visage.

LOOK, WORLD! LOOK AT IAIN LEE!

http://tinyurl.com/36lb6j

ARGH! Imagine that coming at you out of the dark.

We in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland cannot apologise enough for forcing Iain Lee into your ears. All we can do is offer this scant compensation:

At least it wasn't Colin Murray.

I havent been on in like a day and theres like 150 comments since so soz if someones said it because i cant be doing with reading it all. Im shore i read or listened to cusealof saying that they would be explaining walts age differnce. Just listening to jay and jack and they were talking about micheal and walt just as i read that comment, how strange

Gavin412 said...

i think i listened to 1 or 2 episodes of the english Lost initiative and it just annoyed me so much, hes so dull. does anyone knoe if the american lost magazine is the same as the british one?

Jellymanianos said...

Got an email from Elias! Spam obviously. I say obviously, because 'he' was offering me a Penis Enlargement Patch.

Malcolm said...

trevor,

DONT CLICK THAT LINK!!! it ruins it. it'll be good. i know. i read it. just wait.

Malcolm said...

does the lost game totally suck? ive been tempted to buy it, but i wanted to wait until someone else does to see how it is. it looks aiiiittttt, but never trust mobile games.

Malcolm said...

ben and ralph, i think you guys need to make a shout out to dre, and tell him to come onto the blogspot. his calls are hilarious.

PalmerEldritch said...

HAPPY RATTLESNAKEINTHEMAILBOX LOSTNESDAY!

unfortunately, i'll be out of state in a meeting most of the day. but they're paying for our food so that's cool. enjoy the pre-LOST discussion and predictions.

actually, i have about fifty minutes or so before i have to leave...

predictions: charlie drowns in the hatch after pressing that button. they contact the outside world and the guy on the other end of the radio says something crazy. cue LOST music!

memphish said...

Any other death predictions Palmer?

Holli

Malcolm said...

these were my death predictions before i read the spoiler

juliet
naomi
ryan
tom
claire

stephsmith said...

Oh no. No Palmer on the last Lostnesday? Palmer, hurry up and get back.

I took it upon myself to seek out Dre and invited him to the blogspot.

Malcolm said...

yaaay! he needs to join the blogspot.

stephsmith said...

I'll be shocked if Ryan and Tom get out of season three alive.

Malcolm said...

im really annoyed by the people that have nanos only that review the games on itunes. i really want to buy some of them but if a lot of people rate it low, i wont. there are like 50 people like this guy:

i dont have this game but i might get it u kno?

dont review the damn game until you buy it!

Malcolm said...

ryan = pickett, so everyone hates him. tom is cool, but he took walt and shot sawyer.

memphish said...

Malcolm, the game is the same one available for mobile phones. Maybe you can find more reviews for it that way.

Holli

stephsmith said...

Dom on The View. New sneek peek in the video.
The women are so annoying. Too many asking questions at one time.

Malcolm said...

thanks holli. ill check it out, but i dont think ill get it. im going back and forth, but its probably gonna suck.

trevor mcfur said...

I downloaded the game last night ... just a first impression, but it seems pretty simplistic and weak. It's one of those, "run here, find that, come back here" games. Maybe it'll get better at higher levels. It's only 5 bucks, so, you get what you pay for. Maybe a decent diversion if you're using the bathroom and don't have magazine.

Malcolm said...

yeah. havent heard anything that great about it. im not gonna buy it. hopefully the real ubisoft game will come out on the wii, or at least ps2, and ill get to play it then.

Malcolm said...

trevor, if you like arcade games, get tetris and pac man. there awesome on the ipod. some review people said the controls suck, but i like them. they feel really natural. i havent actually bought pacman, but i got the ms pac man free demo. tetris is awesome.

trevor mcfur said...

I have Ms. Pacman, but haven't played much, thought the controls were a little awkward. Maybe I'll start playing a bit and try to get used to them. I play Zuma a lot, that's like an ideal game for the iPod with the wheel. And Tetris is always a winner.

Malcolm said...

i got tetris yesterday, and ive been playing it all day since. my eyes hurt.

Malcolm said...

SQUIGGLEY SQUIGGLEY LEGS!!!

yeah. the controls for ms pac man were awkward at first, but i really like them. it almost feels like a joystick.

Malcolm said...

the ipod has great potential for games. my friend had a hack where he could play doom on his ipod, and it worked good. there are enough combinations and such you can do to put the average nes/genesis game port on there, plus a completely original kick-jump-punch sidescrolling platformer. im looking forward to it. the only thing i ask is that they try to keep it 2d. 3d games like lost on the ipod dont look good. something looks weird about it.

Malcolm said...

i hope that the next gen of ipod, after the piece of shit iphone, has modified controls and stuff to fit games on it. i like the idea of a gaming system where you can buy games online, straight to your ipod. i really like the wii vc stuff. it'll be kinda like that.

trevor mcfur said...

Upgraded controls would be nice. Even for a game that is easy to control, I start getting some major hand cramps after 15 min or so. Not to mention that any game seems to drain the battery like a mofo.

stephsmith said...

Josh Holloway is the new face of Cool Water. Perfect!

http://prn.newscom.com/cgi-bin/pub/s?f=PRN/prnpub&p1=20070522/257080-b&xtag=PRN-prnphotos-062248&redir=detail&view=thumbnail_grid

Malcolm said...

im usually not away from home and using my ipod for more than 5 hours at the greatest, so the battery draining isnt much of a problem. also, ive noticed that when watching movies, at least, the thing says the battery is dead, but in fact it'll last for another few hours.

Malcolm said...

wtf?!? what does

JOSH HOLLOWAY, FACE OF DAVIDOFF COOL WATER FRAGRANCE

mean?

Malcolm said...

does anyone here watch the boondocks? do you know when the second season is starting up?

memphish said...

Let's assume that the LOSTies are able to use the sat phone to contact Naomi's ship. If the ship sends another helicopter, why wouldn't it just crash like Naomi's did? If they send the ship, how can it then escape the Island's pull instead of just going in cirles like Desmond's did?

In honor of Christian Shephard, I've found a Random Cocktail Generator. I intend to have it mix me up several different cocktails over the course of the day.

My morning cocktail is:

Upholder Cocktail

1½ oz riesling
1 oz OP Anderson aquavit
½ oz lime juice
½ oz advocaat
5 drops Grand Marnier
Shake vigorously with lump ice until thoroughly blended and creamy.

Holli

Ally said...

awesome logo! no comments on the podcast yet, i'm still listening to it. starting my morning off right :)

Ghostwatch The Great said...

Pip-pip chappers. Here is my supery dupery random cocktail:

Incarnadined Wheeler Cocktail

Chill cocktail glass. Prepare as follows:

Muddle in cocktail shaker eau de melisse & sea salt with a dash of falernum.

In pre-chilled cocktail shaker combine

* 2 oz Beefeater London Dry Gin
* ¾ oz St. Raphael
* ½ oz Dry Sack
* 1 tsp. espresso
* 2 drops Benedictine

Fill shaker with small lumps of ice, grip tightly with both hands, and execute a seizure for fifteen seconds.

Strain into chilled cocktail glass.

Sounds tasty. Bad name though. With that much "Beefeaters" I suggest it be renamed The Nosh

Ally said...

Here's my morning cocktail.


Conflicting Chamberlain Cocktail

Chill cocktail glass. Prepare as follows:

In pre-chilled cocktail shaker combine

2½ oz American apple brandy
½ oz Vov
1 tsp. orange juice
2 tsp lemon syrup
Do the Mambo whilst shaking with fresh snow.

trevor mcfur said...

Cool generator. I had been thinking that it was a little quiet on the board for the last Lostnesday for the next 8 months.

My cocktail:

Plagiarizing Freeze Cocktail
Chill cocktail glass. Prepare as follows:

In pre-chilled cocktail shaker combine

2 oz apple flavored vodka
¾ oz lime juice
½ oz beer
2 tsp goldwasser
Add all ingredients except the beer. Oscillate at 60hz with copious quantities of ice for fifteen seconds.

Strain into chilled cocktail glass.

Top with beer.

I'm an evening/nightime drinker, so maybe I'll enjoy one with Lost tonight. That or a beer.

trevor mcfur said...

Totally unLost-related, but has anyone heard about this Sanjaya nonsense? That he's basically a performance artist using American Idol as his graduating thesis? That's crazy...

Malcolm said...

i dont drink, but heres what it gave me

Malcolm said...

have there been doctor name generators yet?

jayhawk said...

Happy Lostnesday, everyone!

jellymanianos - Hope you're wrong on the prediction. For those that care, I'll take the Reds to win 2-1.

Love the weekly genrators! Here is my morning cocktail, with a bird-related name. How appropriate.

Quail Cocktail
Chill cocktail glass. Prepare as follows:
In pre-chilled cocktail shaker combine
2 oz traditional schnapps
1 oz bianco vermouth
½ oz Tom & Jerry mix
2 drops Melon-flavored schnapps liqueur
Do the Mambo whilst shaking with a small iceberg.
Strain into chilled cocktail glass.

I didn't realize I'd have to learn to dance to make a cocktail. Guess that's why I prefer beer.

jayhawk said...

Mark Solid? What kind of a name is that?

Jellymanianos said...

Malcolm said...
