J.J. Abrams Project "Cloverfield"



If you saw Transformers, then you saw the trailer for J.J. Abrams huge top secret project, only known as “Cloverfield” – we don’t even know the name of the film yet. It’s going to hit theaters on 01-18-08, which appears to be a significant date relating to the film itself, and J.J. is playing his own little “Lost Experience” game in promoting this film.

He’s already got a teaser website set up, and now there’s a blog which links you to other sites (where you’ll find that photo, which is actually a game you have to figure out). An official trailer was just released, so if you haven’t seen Transformers you can check it out for yourself, tear it apart, and let us know if you find a robot Godzilla with a Dharma Initiative logo on it.

first!

aimee in little rock said...

That shit looks badass. Check out that third link; it tells you how to play that ball game thing, and a video shows up!

Oh, and First!

aimee in little rock said...

Motherfucker!

aimee in little rock said...

I hate it when that happens. You're such a snake Palmer!

Seriously, this movie, or at least the promotion of it, is pretty cool. It's probably going to suck in comparison to the amped up anticipation, especially for the nerds like me who are going to play along with his game.

trevor mcfur said...

Damn, new thread. Well, here's my post from the last thread.

Andrew, the 3rd season of Angel is pretty good, I think. The 4th is definitely the worst, at least imo. The 5th is the best, but is it worth sitting through 3 & 4 to get to 5 if you're just a casual fan? Meh.

Finally went out this weekend and picked up this Guitar Hero all the kids are talking about. My god, this is a hard game. And I think that I now have carpal tunnel syndrome.

Welcome jump! Enjoy!

andrew. said...

hate to burst bubbles, but i think it's been established that EthanHaasWasRight.com (the site with the puzzles) isn't related to the film. It's actually part of a viral campaign for a video game.

i'm still hoping "Cloverfield" will be Lovecraftian in tone.

trevor mcfur said...

I've heard that the Cloverfield movie and these viral sites actually may not be related, instead just clever viral marketing by the manufacturers of a new video game.

PalmerEldritch said...

huzzah! i whupped your ass, aimee. first posted like a champ. or maybe like some guy with way too much free time. one of the two...

PalmerEldritch said...

ok, how cool is it that you can move around the photos at http://www.1-18-08.com/ ?

the interweb never ceases to amaze me!

oh. and aimee, if i have to be a snake, can i at least be a snake on a plane?

andrew. said...

Trevor - thanks for the Angel break down. i might give it a chance at some point but i think i burned myself out on TV by speeding through Buffy. I'm going to try and watch some artsy fartsy movies for a while.

-thinking about Comic Con, do you think people will ever dress up like Lost characters? For the most part our characters are just regular schmoes in interchangeable garb. Right now i could imagine somebody dressing up like Safari Locke, Ecko, Mikhail or just a Dharma drone.

PalmerEldritch said...

andrew, my girlfriend wouldn't let me dress up as OxyContinJack. it sounded like a great excuse not to trim my beard for a couple of months. alas, it was vetoed.

aimee in little rock said...

That sucks about that blog, Andrew! I didn't even realize that you could move the photos on the teaser site until my 2nd visit. I'm sure they'll have legitimate links coming from that one..

I like OxyContin Jack! His head looks a little more proportionate to his body when he has all that facial hair. Other characters from Lost that people can dress up as:

- Oceanic Flight Attendant
- Badass Eko with the ripped white shirt & bloody Jesus stick
- Henry Gale with an arrow through the shoulder
- Polar Bear
- Mudwrestlin' Kate
- Mudwrestlin' Juliet (works good with two girls if you have a set of handcuffs)
- Naked Desmond

aimee in little rock said...

Personally, I like Naked Desmond the best. And there's very little preparation required for such a costume. Maybe a little grooming, that's it.

trevor mcfur said...

The Ghostbusters that Ralph & Ben talked about could just sew a Dharma logo on their jumpsuits and, voila, Lost characters. And all it takes is a little eyeliner to dress as Richard. Personally, if I were to dress as a Lost character, I'd get a dirty wool cap and grow a scuzzy beard and call myself Mr. Friendly.

PalmerEldritch said...

the mudwrestlin' outfits are a fantastic idea, aimee. you're a genius.

i dressed up as Naked Desmond in the shower this morning, brothah. a more legal Naked Desmond costume would be that giant tie dye shirt Hurley gave him.

i'd suggest "Jungle Gear Rousseau," "Bespin Karl," and "Avon Party Hosting Dr. Eyeliner."

aimee in little rock said...

If I dress up as Jungle Gear Rousseau, is body hair optional?

aimee in little rock said...

I'm still blown away at the lack of pit hair on that woman. No offense, but not only is she French, but she's been living in the jungle for 16 years. Come on.

Ralph- said...

i saw a guy that was dressed like Hurley last year.

There is a lot of talkback stuff on that 1-18-08 picutures, people seemed to be fixated on the creepy guy in yellow, the glowing shirt of the blue shirt dude. Some people believe that there is a demon face between the pic of the two girls and that they are the same girl, if you wrap around the picture. That picture of the girls in the fog just went up, i wonder if you can fool with the lighting in photoshop and look for clues to something bigger. I hear that there is some dude with a slush shirt on, and people are talking about that being a clue. who knows.

JJ has stated that the only website that is officially attached to "Cloverfield" is 1-18-08.com. he says that the Ethan Hass stuff is not his.

trevor mcfur said...

I call the lack of pit hair on Danielle as an acceptable suspension of disbelief. I mean, come on, no one wants to be seeing that.

aimee in little rock said...

Very true Trevor. I've always written it off as that, because obviously people wouldn't want to watch it.

Ralph, I don't see anything between the 2 girls, but I'm interested in the new fog/dust picture. I wonder if there's something there. You're good at that stuff, try it out in Photoshop!

PalmerEldritch said...

re: arm pit hair

rousseau waits a couple of years and then uses the dynamite from the Black Rock.

PalmerEldritch said...

judging from the time stamps, the girls get scared and dusty looking, then 12 minutes later a bright light blinds and silhouettes everyone.

aimee in little rock said...

Please please please please be Voltron. or He-Man. Preferably He-Man.

Anonymous said...

seems like "War of the Worlds" redone....

PalmerEldritch said...

He-Man riding Voltron into battle, maybe?

aimee in little rock said...

That would be like my childhood dreams coming true.

PalmerEldritch said...

An article about Naked Desmond Costumes.

aimee in little rock said...

Would YOU want to live in a town that allowed public nudity?

trevor mcfur said...

That article is funny. If you read the whole thing, you realize that wandering around the streets of that town naked is ok. But dancing naked in the streets? Felony.

aimee in little rock said...

How would you be able to tell who the perverts are, and who the "au naturale" people are?

I have an answer for that, but it's not pretty. Booiiingg.

trevor mcfur said...

Aimee, I wouldn't want to live in a town where someone like me was allowed to wander around naked.

PalmerEldritch said...

That town is in dire need of an "You must be this hot:" sign.

I love how they were totally cool with nudity until an old dude showed up.

And, no, public nudity is not something I would want in my town. Unless my town were full of me and women I found attractive.

But having to see some schlong when I wanted to go to the bank? No, thanks. Naked grandmamas at the supermarket? Not for me.

Benjamin said...

Even if they outlawed clothes I don't think I would walk around in public naked. I'd either get some sort of telecommuting job, or cover my shame with mud or shaving cream or something.

I could go as Seabilly Tom if I were into costume play. I've already got most of the beard. But Aimee's handcuffed girls suggestion is the greatest. I wish I knew two girls that were going to con that I could bully into doing that.

elias said...

LOL Palmer - just trying to visualize that sign.

Bunch of new DVDs:
Zodiac
Klute
District 13
Run Lola Run

I saw the first 20 mins of District 13 and it blew me away. Gonna watch Zodiac first though.

PalmerEldritch said...

ben, cover your shame with two mudcovered women in handcuffs.

trevor mcfur said...

I'd be willing to bet that naked town is really just one big sausage party.

PalmerEldritch said...

it's vermont. it's probably all hippies. which means dreadlocks on white people...

trevor mcfur said...

Make that dreadlocks on naked white people. >shudder<

aimee in little rock said...

Dreadlocks on OLD naked white people!

barf

Jordan from the 206 said...

Aimee & Kim,

If all of us here at the blogspot come up with the money to fly both of you to Comic Con, will you two dress up as mudwrestling Kate & Juliet? Better yet to make it worth our money, will you guys film a re-enactment of the scene? :P

aimee in little rock said...

I'd have to speak for both of us, and say yes.

But remember, the scene did not actually end with the two of them making out.

aimee in little rock said...

And don't say "yes it did, I swear I saw it" because that's just your brain seeing what it wants to; it doesn't make it reality.

Ralph- said...

*swoops in for the belated KABLAMO!*

aimee in little rock said...

That shows how long its been since I posted regularly..I was #42 and didn't even notice! Shame on me.

Ralph- said...

well now you can post on the boards while you are driving. iPhone means more aimee!! yess!

PalmerEldritch said...

aimee, not that it isn't a tempting offer as is, but we were all sort of hoping for Dharma Whipped Topping. and if you can't do that, then it's up to Ralph and Ben.

aimee in little rock said...

Aimee + Kim + Free tickets to ComiCon = Dharma Whipped Topping wrestling match.

t-dot kim said...

WHAT??? Free trip to Comic Con and all I have to do is walk around in some mud???

SOLD! j/k! "Cloverfield" looks exciting. I was hooked the moment I saw the "Bad Robot" graphic before the trailer.

And for the nudity conversation... I know I keep bringing up Canada, but I love this country. In Canada it's legal to go topless in public--for everyone. But bottomless you'll be thrown into jail. Sadly, none of the HOT people you'd like to see around town pay much attention to this right we have in this nation. :(

t-dot kim said...

btw, Aimee... I'd kick your ass!

aimee in little rock said...

What I lack in height I make up for in feisty-ness. Bring it on, woman!

t-dot kim said...

Oh Aimee, you're adorable... *pats top of head*

PalmerEldritch said...

aimee, kim, you can carpool to Comic-Con. road trip!

/get in the choppah!!!

Benjamin said...

How much would airfare and con tickets be for our two ladies? Because they can both stay in my room for free. Oh yeah. So, if we figure out a total, it could be the kind of thing where if we get all their listeners to just kick in five or ten bucks each, the mud-wrestling is on. Also, in my hotel room.

If not, Ralph and I will have to do our best to oblige. Which more likely than not would be a no-mud, no whipped topping, sissy slap fight. That's pretty much our fighting style. Oh, and sometimes I try to punch him in the kidneys. That's a move I need to bring back.

PalmerEldritch said...

PalmerEldritch said...

oh. stay in ben's room? tickets will be $460ish per person from Little Rock to San Diego. and back.

Ralph- said...

UM...if you havent seen the pic of me and ben b*ttfucking in a hotel room, than you have no idea how this will end up.

aimee in little rock said...

Oh wow, Kim the crazy deluded Amazon woman thinks she can intimidate a 5'3" foul-mouthed Sicilian by tossing a little condescension my way?

Yeah, I don't think so honey. Nice try though.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Fun day at the blogspot. Good times. ;)

And if T-dot vs Little Rock in mud with whip cream happens, I will gladly drive my ass down to San Diego to see that shit. lol.

aimee in little rock said...

Mud. Whipped Cream. Creamed Corn. KY. I don't care. I wanna fight.

PalmerEldritch said...

hundreds of nerds just raised their hands to volunteer. hundreds more raised something else. :\

JonJon said...

OH Snap, what have I been missing?!

FutureAlly said...

what? boobies?

trevor mcfur said...

Smart money's on Aimee inside of 10 minutes.

aimee in little rock said...

I'm the underdog, lol.

PalmerEldritch said...

Aimee? Kim? the real winner is whoever tapes it and markets it on the internet first.

Jimmy said...

Aimee...

Hate to tell you, but Sicilian chics are full of shit. Dated 2, both huge on the talk yet at the end of the day as about as whimpy as...well, all Italians, I guess ;)

trevor mcfur said...

Jordan, don't forget those of us who might choose to watch it on the internet.

PalmerEldritch said...

kablamo!

FutureAlly said...

sounds like jimmy's trying to get in on this fight...

PalmerEldritch said...

ally, i think you're right. even if he's not, it's a brilliant idea you've had.

jimmy, talk shit about the CFL. that'll get kim fired up.

elias said...

lovely stuff.

Northern European chicks are the meanest ;)

aimee in little rock said...

Jimmy just earned himself a kick in the balls, which will be personally delivered on my upcoming trip to Seattle.

Don't believe me? Think I'm just saying that? Watch me, Jimmy. I am seriously going to kick you in the nuts.

You basically just said that I was full of shit because I was Sicilian? Oh right, well we all know stereotypes are always true. So if you dated 2 girls who were like that, the odds are the rest of the population is exactly the same - mmm, probably right on! Good call, Jimmy!

Wow, I'm actually pissed off now. Playful girlfighting was one thing, but Jimmy had to go and make it all personal for some reason. Take that Seattle Starbucks biscotti out of your ass and tell me what's wrong with you today.

PalmerEldritch said...

uh oh... don't make aimee angry, you wouldn't like her when she's angry.

Jimmy said...

Ohhhh....someones got her pants in a bunch!

MB said...

Wow...I picked the wrong day to be busy at work. This is one kick-ass (and I mean that literally) thread.

Boobies

..."large popcorn please"....

aimee in little rock said...

I don't give a shit what nationality I am, how fucking tall I am, or how many fights I've been in the past.

I was brought up to fight one way, and that's to the fucking death, and if you don't believe me, seriously, piss me off and fight me.

JonJon said...

Ok guys let's get along. The only fighting I want to see is the scripted fighting. Who's up for a bras and panties match!?!

aimee in little rock said...

And if you had a fucking ex just hire a fucking lawyer for the sole purpose of making life difficult for you, then you'd take your angry aggression out on the blogspot too. Mess with me, go ahead. I don't care. But I'm going to fight back because I'm in that kind of mood.

So yeah, my pants are all bunched up, hahaha. Only I'm not wearing pants. So the joke's on you, Jimmy.

JonJon said...

I wish I wasn't at work, otherwise I'd be not with pants as well...

aimee in little rock said...

I'm at work (for 5 more minutes). But I usually wear skirts, not pants, and today is an example.

JonJon said...

well sadly I don't wear skirts, so I have only two options

Jimmy said...

Aimee...

2.00pm Pacific time....with the heat, I imagine I will be Pantless in about 3 hours.

Yes, Maam...the Joke is on me.

OK...so maybe I am up against a "real" Sicilian? Relax...all was ()and is) in jest. Man...I picked the wrong day to return, didn't I? Sorry about the lawyer...Hmmm...been there.

So...other than the nut kicking, I'm looking forward to your trip up here. We are still hanging? Right?

:/

Jimmy said...

Wow...it's gone fucking quiet all of a sudden, hasn't it?

trevor mcfur said...

Boobies.

MB said...

Aimee,
That f-in sucks. as much as I love the attorney I'm married to, they are indeed talented and trained on how to completely fuck with you. They can suck serious nads.

But what better way to cheer yourself up than looking forward to wrestling a Canadian in a vat of this!

JonJon said...

Ears...wait I don't think that was right

JonJon said...

Oh I know one way to make someone laugh,

this last weekend I got to find out that the girl I've had a crush on for quite a while now is actually a lesbian!

trevor mcfur said...

Mmmm... Dharma whip...

That sucks Jonjon. So if a straight girl who lusts after gay guys is a fag hag, what do you call a straight guy with a crush on a lesbian?

Jimmy said...

That's awesome, Jon Jon. Same thing happened to me and my 1st wife!

JonJon said...

dyke-y likey?

trevor mcfur said...

How about lez-bro?

elias said...

Some french resistance:

Top Secret Clip 1

Top Secret Clip 2

PalmerEldritch said...

jonjon, that's great. cuz now you have an excuse for why you're not dating. "yeah, i'd've boned that already but she's not into guys." sucks that she doesn't like you but fantastic excuse for why she doesn't.

"if i had a vagina, she'd be all over me."

aimee, sorry to hear that. that fucking sucks. but we blogspotters got your back. and we're all at least a little jealous of your iphone. :)

Jimmy said...

I'm presuming that she was
A) A femme

b) In College (a LIC)

JonJon said...

I'm just glad I didn't do anything with her, cause I don't want to be considered the reason why she changed teams

JonJon said...

Jimmy-

that would be B

trevor mcfur said...

So is she a 'real' lesbian, or Lesbian Until Graduation (a LUG)? Because if #2 ... you still have your shot. And you could even take credit for being the one who turned her back.

Steven Hohtrain said...

What are you doing Jonjon?! Get in there and become her best friend! You might get to hang around with her and her friends. ANd who knows, you might get asked to join the fun.

JonJon said...

I'll see how it goes, but until then I'm going to put that on the back burner

JonJon said...

Oh I am already one of her best friends

Ralph- said...

say what you will about the pacific north west, but when it comes to fighting i know that people from seattle dont fight fair. They always bring thier friends along to join the fight. Dang Jimmy, cant you fend for yourself,
always gotta bring some backup!

FutureAlly said...

what a busy day at the blogspot, new movie, comic con, costumes, fights, lesbians....

aimee in little rock said...

Yes of course we're going to hang out, Jimmy. But I'm still kicking you in the nads.

JonJon said...

OMG Wild Boy! I don't dare mess with him

Ralph- said...

Jimmy is Wildboy.

aimee in little rock said...

...Aimee comes in with the assist, and...

Ralph- said...

kablamo

Jimmy said...

Missed the Kablamo!!!

(Just like Aimee will surely muss my nads)

Photos will be provided for your perusal, of course!

Jimmy said...

That's "miss"...not "Muss" :(

aimee in little rock said...

Oh don't worry, I'll do both. Although I'm not sure what "muss" means, so if it's something dirty, disregard. That's what Lisa is for.

Ralph- said...

trust me, your nuts will be MUSSED

andrew. said...

nutty day at the blogspot. [pun intended]
So many friendships shattered by an indecent proposal and the promise of a little Dharma Whipped Topping.

FutureAlly said...

"just like aimee will surely muss my nads."

"trust me, your nuts will be mussed"


that's what she said x 2.

:)

Jimmy said...

I know! What's up with this place? Sex, sex sex and naughtiness....it's all we fucking talk about!!!!! It makes me want to quit.

Aimee...the definition of "Muss" is:

To make messy or untidy; rumple.

Doesn't sound too bad :)

aimee in little rock said...

Dear Jimmy,

I think I could rumple your nads just by kicking them.

I totally know what you mean; this place has surely turned into the one-track mind of a horny teenaged boy. Remember when we used to talk about Lost?

Sincerely,

Boobies in Little Rock

Ralph- said...

Yeah, but to LOST's credit, they had some great boobies on that show.

PalmerEldritch said...

in our defense, i'm pretty sure any reference to wrestling handcuffed in dharma whipped topping is technically a reference to LOST. not to mention it's technically awesome.

oh. and if aimee were truly committed to being "Boobies in Little Rock" then she needs to switch out her Supergirl avatar with an avatar of the Supergirl of Earth-2, Power Girl.

p.s. boobs.

JonJon said...

I can't help that my life currently includes this little thing, however we shouldn't be ashamed of it and in embrace it will a looooong hug, and a stroke of the back, and a kiss of the neck, and uh uh uhhhhhhh...

Ok I'm back

Ralph- said...

fornication

Ghostwatch The Great said...

I'm guessing it's way too late to add that Sicilians aren't Italian?

I'm glad of that, because having looked into it I now see that Sicily is an autonomous region of Italy and not a country in its own right and therefore I would have looked quite the fool.

Aimee - with your plan to move, have you considered Glasgow in Scotland? It'd be a change of scene and your fighting skills would help you integrate almost immediately (translation: kick the shit out of some lager swilling "neds" on the first night).

(These are Neds)

gillian said...

Coolest. Trailer. Ever.

Ok, not ever, but this film looks bad ass.

gillian said...

This may seem a little late, but to join in the 'panties in a bunch' bit of the conversation (even though I much prefer to say knickers), while the rest of you are now lounging around knickerless, I'm currently wearing a yellow dress, and completely the wrong colours knickers-it's awful. But I couldn't find the right colour this morning, and I was not about to go without either, so now I'm stuck with being self-concious about the blue coloured area shining through said dress.

Damn dress.

Oh, Aimee, you could also move to Hong Kong. Actually, maybe not-you'd probably want to live in Macau instead (hour away from boat, so you could still live in the city) where the Triads live among the casinos and race tracks. Every once in a while aka every Friday, said Triad members come over to our side of the water, get to go to the VIP lounges in the clubs, and generally get anyhting they want with a wave of thier hand.

Although, we don't have AT&T here for your iPhone. But, being a Triad member, and potential friend of Stanley Ho, he'd probably change that quickly.

Mike Campbell said...

The countdown is ON for the next H to the P. So excited for saturday. Also been seeing some PS3 talk so i wanted to push the 360 agenda. So yay 360 its good times too. Viva la Games.

Mike Campbell said...

If the movie has a lot of "Arg" viral marketing every wednesday we could have the "coverfield" update like the old lost experience updates...even though no one really followed along :)

gillian said...

Indeed mike, the countdown is set, and I've been prepping myself for the finale since June.

Ok, yeah...*backs away shiftily*

JonJon said...

Saturday and possibly Sunday will be the most unproductive days of this summer!

Mike Campbell said...

well for the past two books people where i work have ruined the ends. So i took saturday and sunday off and plan to marathon the book. Even though i don't want it to end, i don't want it ruined.

gillian said...

I've even stopped going to my number one site for celebrity gossip, much to my dismay...love that site...but they love spoilers more...and at one point, I shan't even be on the net. Probably starting Thursday afternoon.

Although, I could be eating my words when another podcast/post is made and I'm all over the comments.

andrew. said...

argh. just found out that PuShead is going to be at comic con for a signing + selling handpainted toys.
what kind of pudding do i have to wrassle in for the blogspot to puddle-jump me from San Francisco?

-i haven't read any of the Harry Potter books, but if any of the past movies are any indication, he'll win some sort of contest.

Ralph- said...

i bet you that in Harry Potter 7 that Harry Potter goes to a school and junk happens. since this is the last one, he will probably Graduate, and Volermort will give him his diploma while snape is shooting wand bullets at Nakatomi Plaza!

PalmerEldritch said...

damn, Ralph. you're up early. what's up with that?

as for harry potter, meh. enjoy him those who like him but, other than his role in Extras, that whole harry potter thing does nothing for me.

i think i don't want to read or watch Harry Potter cuz it's about little kids. like Boxy from BSG, Wesley from TNG, and Lucas from Seaquest all went to wizard school together. ugh.

but since i've never read it or watched it, maybe it's completely awesome. dunno.

Ralph- said...

i think went to bed early. I woke up with stevi, who woke up early. I think the time was 5:30 when i woke up. chances are that i will take a nap today, i have a busy afternoon evening today.

I think i am gonna go edit the show now. i was gonna post it this morning but ate dinner and watched "Life in the Undergrowth" instead. Damn You David Attenburrough and your sexy voice, pulling me away from entertaining the world.

trevor mcfur said...

Steph, are you saying dammit because you happened to read the comment that someone posted about that article, connecting it to the Pokemon universe? Made me feel relatively normal.

stephsmith said...

No, Trev, I'm saying damnit because I had several articles I was trying to make clickable and twice I made my trashcan clickable. Why can I not get any consistency with my clickable links?

PalmerEldritch said...

my friend just told me about this: Real Transformer

thanks, japan. thapan!

stephsmith said...

Wow, p. The Japanese are so smart.

MB said...

Aimee -
Wow, you're making a trip to Seattle! Good on ya - the Northwest welcomes you, you won't want to leave :)

aimee in little rock said...

Ghostwatch, I have actually considered Glasgow! There was a job in my field that came up there, as well as London, Dublin, and Lyon (where Interpol is hq'd).

MB, I'm driving to Portland while I'm in Seattle since it's only a few hours away, so we will have to do lunch or something. I think I'm dragging Jordan there with me if he doesn't put up too much of a fight. I can always kick him in the nads.

Harry Potter midnight magic party @ Barnes & Noble starts at 9pm!! At the stroke of midnight, I'm going to knock down all those freaking kids, grab my copy, and run home with it.

Mike, I'm not going to sleep until it's done. Which will be one day (Saturday).

aimee in little rock said...

I can't wear my "Hermione" costume, but I can at least wear the cape, glasses, and wand. I love being a dork!

PalmerEldritch said...

aimee, we want pictures of your nerd costume. especially if your hair still looks fantastic.

and if you can get an action shot of you punching out an eight year old in order to get your copy of the Potter, that'd be great.

FutureAlly said...

aimee-
so when should we be expecting you to head south? since you're on a tour of america. just a warning, if you ever decide to visit texas, do it sometime in january when were not burning our fucking faces off. it is freakin' hot here!

PalmerEldritch said...

can anyone get this site to work?

Simponize Me!

Ralph- said...

so i am attempting to get my show up for the 3rd Time. let see, it takes 25-30 minutes to upload and my internet has cut out twice. so i have been sitting here for about 40 minutes just trying to get the show uploaded. a little pissed about it, but it is coming.

aimee in little rock said...

I'm currently being Simpsonized...standby

FutureAlly said...

no palmer, all i see is a blue screen.

PalmerEldritch said...

simpsons site says:

all slots are full. (twss)

FutureAlly said...

no, wait. it's working now.

aimee in little rock said...

It takes a really long time to load!

FutureAlly said...

you're right palmer, apparently all slots are in use.

twss

elias said...

come to London Aimee - you're always welcome to tea & biscuis chez Elias & Jenny.

on the other hand it would be nice to work somewhere that had a summer ;)

PalmerEldritch said...

MB said...

Aimee - that's awesome, definitely give a call (and drag Jordan down too) - a SAS meetup would be excellent!

trevor mcfur said...

Ooh, can't wait to Simpsonize myself once I get home (twss).

So Aimee are you basically going to be following the course of the Chins Across America tour?

Mike Campbell said...

The lines are too long at Borders, so i am going to slum it and go to the Walmart up the street. Looks like i am pulling an all nighter too. I was just going to read a few chapters then go to bed but if thats aimee's plan it shalt be mine too!

Jordan from the 206 said...

Who's dragging me where? What? And why am I getting kicked in the nuts? Is this some residual crap from my city-mate Jimmy insulting Sicily yesterday? Note to blogspot. Don't piss off that girl.

MB said...

Take your time Ralph - the Lars is worth waiting for

stephsmith said...

The Simpsonizer worked for me but scrunched up my eyes, nose, and mouth.

MB said...

lol Jordan - you may find yourself being dragged to Portland w/Aimee for a visit

FutureAlly said...

WTF? my simponized version of myself is a baby! maybe i'll try a different picture later.

aimee in little rock said...

Woohoo! I've been Simpsonized!

Mike I'm so excited!! We'll be IM'ing each other at 4 am, saying "what chapter are YOU on, bitch!"

I'll have to drag Jordan with me because after he witnesses Jimmy get kicked in the nads, he's not going to want to be anywhere near me. Out of fear for his own nads.

I'm in a super good mood today because I had my job interview, so the hard part is over, and now I just have to wait and be disappointed when I don't get the promotion. (And I need the promotion in order to help me leave the city - sounds totally convoluted I know; just trust me!)

PalmerEldritch said...

ally, the age lever gets reset to zero between simpsonizations. happened to me too.

job interview? sweet. what for? mittelworks bioscience? you'd be up in Portland by MB.

or would you?

aimee in little rock said...

It's for a supervisor position for the job I currently have. I don't really want it, but I need the pay increase in order to save up to move. So they'd like, promote me and then a year later I'd leave. I'm a total bastard I know.

PalmerEldritch said...

good luck, aimee. i don't know these people, so go ahead and do it. screw those bastards over! unless you like them. then just take advantage of their kindness.

oh. and once you're the supervisor, it can be blogspot time all workday long.

PalmerEldritch said...

new thread.
