4th last! Kablamo!

Holli

t-dot kim said...

ok...this is getting out of hand

MB said...

Thanks Kim! Thim!

I posted the info in the podcast over at the SPLOG as well if anyone needs links.

MB said...

and since I was late to my own party as-it-were b/c I was still at the old thread - here's a re-post:

wow - that "Mi Amigo" movie case is hilarious. I wonder how small Josh's part really is? (TWSS)

Holli and Steph - most impressed by the Lost extra credit. I think you may be what is keeping Lost on this blog over the summer.

Steph - w00t! nice av! and wow, you made it through season 2 already! Were you ever able to watch Season 1?
Palmer's right, the Runaway Bride (Christmas episode) + the first episode with Martha Jones just aired on SciFi on Friday. If you didn't record them, I can send you a DVD of them. Let me know.

RE: Sports-that-do-not-need-to-be-on-the
-air - I really think ESPN is just going to keep multiplying and they will have to fill the time eventually with this

trevor mcfur said...

Like I said in the last thread ... that's a funny clip mb, although at first I thought it was 'NSFW'!

I was hoping that we were gonna get to 300...

MB said...

Trevor -
OK, i've been trying to wait for it to make sense so that I don't look like an idiot (which may be impossible according to my high-school trigonometry teacher), but what is NSFW?

memphish said...

Mac is really getting quite the ego. Next thing we'll hear is that he's on the outs with the MYOKM w/SAS posse. Better watch out Mac or you'll have people all over the interwebs speculating about you.

I have a lame LOST question today, but nevertheless it's there for your viewing pleasure. It has to do with Locke's magical ability to know all and be all places.

Holli

And MB, NSFW means Not Safe for Work. Try Urban Dictionary for all your random consonant needs.

MB said...

Thanks for the link Holli!

re: Mac - yeah he's out of control. We'll have to try something new for next season maybe. lol

stephsmith said...

mb, I've only watched the last few episodes of season two. Morgan and I are in the midst of catching up with what aired Friday. I haven't even seen anything with the Doctor by which I have come to know as Claude, the invisible man. BTW, have you watched Heroes yet?

PalmerEldritch said...

i'm just waiting to see what would happen to poor Mac if he started using BootCamp to dual-boot or Parallels for virtual machines. multiple personalities, maybe?

trevor mcfur said...

Thanks for helping mb out, Holli.

Great Kwik-E-Mart picks on the Lars' myspace page.

MB said...

...ooh good idea - the possibilities...

PalmerEldritch said...

actually, mb, you should have responded with "and maybe one of the personalities won't be an @$$hole!"

stephsmith said...

Elias, I haven't watched much lately other than Black Snake Moan. I suppose I can recommend that one to you. My husband threatened to strangle me after I forced him to sit through it so I sat through The Sentinel for him. Don't waste your time on that one though unless you want a good laugh at how they had to edit the film to make Michael Douglas look more spry and agile than he obviously is.

MB said...

Steph -
I have sadly NOT watched Heroes yet - waiting anxiously for the Aug. 28th release. I also, have the season's-worth of 3 Heroes podcasts saved and will listen to them as I watch.

Just FYI - the marathon did not cover all of Seas. 2 I don't think - but Netflix
has Season 2 available if you want to see the rest of it.

MB said...

Palmer - yeah - he needs to be nice. I agree.

andrew. said...

Like MB i'm looking forward to the Heroes DVDs getting released. Even though i wasn't into the episodes i saw, i want to give the show a fair shake. I DVR'd the whole marathon a month back but when i went to watch it, it didn't include the first couple of episodes(!?), so i just deleted it all. I think M.A.S.H. is the only show that i can stand watching out of order in this DVD age.

the title for "A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints" always reminds me of Danny Boyle's "Millions". I really enjoyed that movie, rate it a 4.5 on the Netflix scale. If you've got a sentimental bone in your body i'd say stick it in your queue.

Is a Diva-Cast starring Ben & Mac on the horizon?

stephsmith said...

Yes, mb, we are a cool bunch aren't we.

elias said...

Steph - seen the Sentinel and agree. Black Snake Moan interests me. Actually, Christina Ricci interests me. Sam Jackson only needs one more Snake film to complete the trilogy.

Internet went down for 2 hours here and I nearly lost it on the phone to customer service. TalkTalk is the worst provider and I wish them harm. Notice I haven't really calmed down and have to before Jenny gets back from work.

If anyone's seen The Mighty Boosh they'll know that a picture of kittens can magically pacify you. also a stiff drink works.

MB said...

Andrew - How had I never thought of that pairing? - lol

Steph - I assume you were referring to you and the other 2 podcast heroes. I am actually totally looking forward to having those podcasts along with the episodes. ALMOST like watching it when it aired.

MB said...

DOH! belated 23-Kablammo

trevor mcfur said...

Elias--

I think that's what you get when you go with a New Age band from the 80s as your internet provider.

MB said...

I wished Duran Duran harm once...

elias said...

LOL Trevor - I'd never heard of them before.

"Talk Talk had a huge success in 1984/85 in continental Europe with the album It's My Life." Ignored in Blighty - the ultimate shame for a British band.

MB said...

re: the Kwik-E pics at Dharmalars' My Space - damn that's a lot of Buzz Cola! lol

memphish said...

It's going to be Elvis Death Week here in Memphis soon.

Holli

MB said...

wow - elvis was hairy toward the end there

PalmerEldritch said...

my dharmalars shirt has arrived. alas, the golden ticket was not in there. so, it's up to YOU to get the golden ticket.

t-dot kim said...

I hope to see my Lars t-shirt and golden ticket waiting for me when I get home... how awesome will that be??

PalmerEldritch said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
PalmerEldritch said...

kim, we'll need pics of you and your dharmalars swag. preferably while playing hockey and drinking maple syrup.

MB said...

...w/arm around a polar bear, next to an igloo...

(GET KNUT IN HERE!!)

memphish said...

And don't forget the tuque!

Holli

MB said...

So Kim,
How long does your Mariners punishment last?

PalmerEldritch said...

holli, i couldn't figure out how to spell tuque. :)

MB said...

chase that syrup w/Molson

memphish said...

Palmer, that's why I have the wiki link. I didn't know how to spell it either.

Holli

Ralph- said...

Palmer is our Dharmalars Default Pic at myspace.

YAY.....PICTURES!

Ralph- said...

kablamo!

memphish said...

Kablamo! to that news.

Holli

memphish said...

I hereby revoke my Kablamo as belated and/or premature.

Holli

Ralph- said...

sorry holli, i jumped the gun on that. So far we have 2 Lars Pics with the new shirts. love them! keep them coming.

mine should be coming soon. i will post a pic with me wearing it.

Ghostwatch The Great said...

I'd love to record with the Dharmalars. But I can't. Because I can't get a golden ticket. Because I can't order a shirt.

Ah well.

Can I offer the TLI ladies use of my voice for about ten minutes of a podcast? I can talk about:

* Doctor Who
* defunct Boston rock band Extreme
* Mike Oldfield
* The provision of trivia by SMS text message
* Nu-Skool Breaks
* Tori Amos
* Slippers

goofball said...

MB thanks for the spoiler update. AND the Pelvic Powerlifting video in the last thread. Highlarious.

MB said...

Goofball - I'm always trying to spread the joy :)

Ghost - you can talk about Extreme only if you sing "More than Words" in it's entirety (a-capella)

trevor mcfur said...

So I get home today and there's a bag from Sam and Nate on the step and in the bag from Sam and Nate there's a yellow Dharmalars' t-shirt and along with the yellow Dharmalars' t-shirt is...

NOTHING.

Oh well ... great shirt though!!!

Ghostwatch The Great said...

Why acapella when I know the guitar part?

I can even have a stab at the fret tapping bit from the album version.

I prefer Hole Hearted.

MB said...

Congrats on getting the shirt Trevor!

Ghost - well you are multi-talented aren't you. To be honest, I always preferred Hole Hearted as well - so take it...

MB said...

Gotta go home - talk to you lovelies later

Ghostwatch The Great said...

Still think of myself as a keyboard guy, though.

Despite my stumpy fatboy fingers.

PalmerEldritch said...

ghostie, maybe the keytar?

Ghostwatch The Great said...

I've just realised how distinctly unhealthy I look in my little avatar picture.

I have the warm glow of the "three hours dead" corpse.

I think I stopped wanting a keytar about the same time I stopped wanting a headless guitar. Probably about 1994.

Might be time for them to make a comeback.

Oh, erm, Lost...

So.. what's the.. er.. deal with...

Actually - has every season so far begun AND ended with a Jack episode?

The fact they had to go into the future must surely imply we have sucked that character dry?

memphish said...

Ghostwatch, Season 1 didn't begin and end with Jack. It ended with everyone and the first traditional flashback, which was in episode 1.3, was Kate. Arguably, the first FB in the Pilot was Jack's on the plane though. The last person to get the FB scene at the end of S1 was Locke.

I am nitpicking, but what the hey. I've still got months and months to wait for LOST, so all I have is nitpicking. (Which is much better than the lice form of nit picking. Thankfully, I have a son and his head will be shaved should that problem ever arise.)

Holli

stephsmith said...

I think my lucky stars every school year, Holli, that we make it out without having to nit pick. Having to do that with with lovely, think hair would be a nightmare.
I have to say that I think Martha Jones is lovely. Wasn't she in Doomsday as one with an alien stuck in her ear?

Jordan from the 206 said...

So I got my bright yellow t-shirt in the mail today. And guess what?! I accidentally ordered a small instead of a medium! D'oh. I'm not normally the showing off my nipples type. Oh well, I guess I can wear it next time I'm in Europe.

PalmerEldritch said...

steph, sort of. that was another case of Identical Cousins. martha's identical cousin was a bluetoothing bimbo who met a horrible fate in a previous episode.

trevor mcfur said...

Jordan, you should order another ... another chance for the elusive Golden Ticket.

PalmerEldritch said...

jordan, wear it and your button fly jeans! you'll be the belle of the ball, hombre.

stephsmith said...

Palmer, what cool activity are you participating in wearing your shirt? Yardwork?

PalmerEldritch said...

it's me by a Hatch.

really. i discovered it behind some trees in my yard after about nine months of living here. i freaked out and told my lovely ladyfriend and she said "yeah. it's been there since we moved in." pretty much, it's just an old well but she agreed that it was cool that we have a freakin' hatch like the Lostaways.

now, to find a TARDIS...

PalmerEldritch said...

oh. and thanks to ralph for touching up the pic for me.

thanks, ralph. thalph!

andrew. said...

-i just ordered a Dharmalars shirt. Now i just need to scare up some old dude to call Grandpa Joe.

-i'm a big fan of the Bourne movies so far and i'm really looking forward to the new one, but whoever cut the TV commercial should rethink their career path. They succeeded in making the new installment of one of the most action packed franchises ever look like a workplace sensitivity training video.

Mike Campbell said...

Can i claim to have the fake Golden Ticket like in willy wonka :) I might be from russia, making fake tickets is my job. Even without the ticket the shirt is very nice!

Mike Campbell said...

Oh and is J.J. making a new Godzilla movie cause that would be friggen sweet :)

PalmerEldritch said...

ah-hem...

Ralph- said...

KABLAMO!

PalmerEldritch said...

boobs.

trevor mcfur said...

From Urban Dictionary, today's 'Word of the Day'.

Canadaphile: A non-Canadian person who is extremely fond of Canadians, Canadian culture,
and/or Canada in general.

She is such a Canadaphile, she just had a maple leaf tattooed on her shoulder!

andrew. said...

Reluctant Juror.

trevor mcfur said...

Don't fuck with China.

Hey Everyone,
My next design is up at Threadless.Com! Please head over and Vote! Time is very important. I have less than 24 hours to get enough votes. Check it out and help out my cause!!

THANKS!

ralph-


CLICK HERE
and vote for Digit Suicide!

PalmerEldritch said...

ralpho, this mean not so much luck on the last shirt?

PalmerEldritch said...

can't tell if that's a noose in the string or not, but that'd be pretty badass.

Ralph- said...

if i dont get enough votes within 24 hours, it is done. so whenever you see me put one of these up, that is it! i need the votes fast! i spend a couple days working on a design, and have only 24 hours to impress the internet. it is pretty harsh. so please vote 5. i could use all the help i can get.

elias said...

My name is Elias and I'm a Canadaphile.

PalmerEldritch said...

i really like Maple Sugar Candy... does that make me a canadaphile?

oh, that kim from t-dot's pretty damned cool too.

t-dot kim said...

Thanks guys! I'm proud to know so many Canadaphiles. (btw, does it make me a traitor if I'm not a fan of Maple Syrup or Tim Hortons' coffee??)
~Kim

PS> The avitar pic ends today, the week is over. I also added another day because the person I had the bet with was a pu**y and cried about it the entire time

trevor mcfur said...

Some of the comments can be pretty harsh. Better luck this time Ralph.

Ghostwatch The Great said...

My new avatar has gone from "Corpse" to rocking a kind of "My Lovely Horse" vibe.

t-dot kim said...

So... I was excited to come home last night and expect my 'Lars t-shirt to arrive, but alas no such luck. wft sam&nate. wtf.

memphish said...

I guess Sam & Nate aren't canadaphiles.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

Sam & Max?! oh. Nate? :(

trevor mcfur said...

Don't blame Sam & Nate. Blame Canada.

MB said...

Ghost - always entertained by your AVs - lol

Ralph - voted for you - hope you win!

Kim - as we are speaking of Canada - I'll just add my name to the list of Canadaphiles - every time I go up there I love it. And Toronto is a great city (though I haven't been there in a loooooong time).

rock on

trevor mcfur said...

Just listened to the spoilercast today. Damn mb, your Mac is a dick.

PalmerEldritch said...

Mac is clearly suffering from a case of disk envy.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Whatever Kimbo. :P

t-dot kim said...

P, love the picture--I believe you're doing your best John Locke impression; however, it looks like you're having relations with your "hatch".

Jordan from the 206 said...

I was going to say the same thing Palmer. You and that hatch might need to get a room. lol.

PalmerEldritch said...

who says i'm not having relations with the hatch? hmmmm?

actually, the hatch had a headache. again. :\

MB said...

Trevor - can u imagine WORKING with him ;) Mac's getting a attitude makeover, whether he likes it or not.

now onto Doctor Who matters:
STEPH - YOU MAY WANT TO SKIP IF YOU HAVEN't SEEN THE X-MAS SPECIAL FROM 2005 - KINDA SPOILERY QUESTION HERE.

Palmer/Ghost-
I have gotten my mom into the new Who and she just watched the Christmas Invasion (from Dec. 2005), she was saying she thought the Doc was being unfair in his smack-down of Harriet Jones for shooting down the Sycorax ship as it left. My opinion is that while it is hard to justify letting the ship go, isn't the Doc's point is that shooting someone in the back after they surrendered makes you and offender rather than a defender? I don't know, I can see both sides, but I think the Doc's reaction was overkill. What do you think?

elias said...

Who? ;)

The Spoilercast helped on the commute this morning, MB. Cheers.

I always liked the word 'philhellene' - I'm one of those too.

Ghostwatch the Greater said...

I just wanted to say chip chip cheerio to mb and mr. mac for another splendid podcost. You chaps really do a bang up job. Cheers!

memphish said...

There's a Michael Giachhino interview with EW.

MB said...

Thanks Elias & Ghost the Greater!

Ralph- said...

that is just one of hundreds of panels. keep your calendar free next year!!! cause it will be just as off the hook.

For those of you going, in addition to our normal weekly Lars Show, we will be doing a Dharmalars Comic Con Survival Guide this week!!

MB said...

I may just have to plan for that Ralph - that does sound awesome.

PalmerEldritch said...

mb, Doctor Who's Captain Jack Harkness will be at Comic-Con.

103!

trevor mcfur said...

My slow-readin' ass is finally just about done with The Chin's book ... and what a great read it was; I think I might be needing to learn how to Make Love: The Bruce Campbell way. Anyway, I thihk that Ralph called next forever ago, so give me an email and I'll send it out later this week.

Any Watchman fans heading for ComicCon? I hear there's gonna be a panel just about the movie, and I'd love to hear what's going down...

Look. I'm green with envy. I'm jealous of anyone going to ComicCon.

memphish said...

Ben, will you be our Watchmen correspondent? Ralph have you moved past page 4 or is it 5 now?

There was a rumor today that Billy Crudup was going to be in it.

Holli

P.S. Palmer, Laurie sucks. At least that's what Dr. Manhattan said.

trevor mcfur said...

I heard that he is actually going to play Dr. Manhattan. There's also a rumor that Kate Winslet is going to play Laurie. But there's been so many casting rumors about that thing, who knows what's true.

PalmerEldritch said...

cant.stop.watching.arrested.development...

yeah, holli, the silver spectre is annoying but i'm pretty sure she serves some sort of purpose in the narrative. right? maybe?

kate winslet would be all wrong for the part. but at least she's eye candy.

trevor mcfur said...

The Silk Spectre costume is gonna be them to pull off and still be taken seriously.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Good stuff, eh Palmer? I think I've watched through the entire series maybe 3 or 4 times.

trevor mcfur said...

I think there was supposed to be a 'tough for' in there someplace!

Ralph- said...

Palmer, i am glad that you are enjoying the show. I know that i try to pound it into everyone's head, but i know it is worth it. YAY!!!!!

Jordan from the 206 said...

Has anybody seen this Pirate version of Survivor? Wow, there is sure some crappy television out there. Yikes.

MB said...

Steph - excellent av! I think you could be a Sci-Fi movie villain or monster with that look - lol! Love it - very cool!

gillian said...

I am loving that people here love Doctor Who as much as I do. Season Three finale though...can't wait to see what you guys think. Unless, of course, you've already seen it, in which case, go for it. : )


Ooooo eeeeeee ooooo.....

Ghostwatch The Great said...

Ha - somebody's parodying me. I guess I've "arrived".

I've only seen The Christmas Invasion the once (guess when?) but from what I recall it can be explained in one of two ways:

WITHIN THE SHOW:
Yes - the Sycorax had been warned off and were leaving, making any action taken by that great superpower the UK (we might be able to fire some racing pigeons at the ship, but that's about it) an aggression rather than a defence.

OUTSIDE OF THE SHOW:
You've got yer new guy in and you want him to set himself up as new and exciting right from the off.

Meanwhile, in LOST - how many toes does Alpert have?

gillian said...

Re: Christmas Invasion:

The new Doctor, as he said, is no longer a second chance guy. Like Ghostwatch said, he's a new character and BAM! he's a bad ass.

memphish said...

New 'Lars today?

I think I solved Juliet's on-Island pregnancy problem by reading The Time Traveler's Wife. You can check it out here. Too bad this book wasn't on Ben's bookshelf.

Holli

memphish said...

Palmer, Here's you another brunette Maggie Grace picture.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

re: Doctor Who and getting pissed at the lady Prime Minister...

it was pretty shortsighted of her. the Doctor had sent them off to tell their tale to all the other aggressive species. if there are no survivors of an encounter with Earth, then nobody can warn everyone else not to fuck with us.

and it is kind of mean to shoot someone in the back. but then again, who's to say that they wouldn't just come back later and try again? it's an iffy subject. basically it all boils down to "how much do you trust the doctor?"

i guess a better idea would have been to let them leave and then get your death star weapon ready for next time.

Scott and Steve said...

Happy Harry Potter movie day :)

Mike Campbell said...

Too bad the movie will suck and once again rape the amazing book without any lube.

Sorry the movies piss me off so much.

PalmerEldritch said...

ok, admittedly, my fashion sense is limited to Dharmalars T-Shirts (buy your shirt here) but that's a weird ass dress that Maggie's wearing in that picture. weird stuff.

PalmerEldritch said...

since there's a new thread.... first!
