This is my gift to the boys.

memphish said...

Can we have Peter Petrelli shirtless for the girls next?

Holli

stephsmith said...

So that's why you wanted those Heroes screencaps, isn't it, Holli? Good idea, though.

PalmerEldritch said...

god bless you.

PalmerEldritch said...

as a welcome to aimee, here's her one way ticket to a million dollars.

aimee in little rock said...

Don't worry, the girls will get theirs.

PalmerEldritch said...

that's what she said.




aimee, what new shows are you watching this season? anything? or just books and pinup pics of evangeline?

aimee in little rock said...

I'm mostly watching the staple shows like Heroes & The Office (and waiting on my other NBC Thursday shows to start) but I watched the premiere of Chuck, and that was pretty funny.

PalmerEldritch said...

...Mom?!

PalmerEldritch said...

is Chuck just a poor man's (woman's) Jim from the Office?

memphish said...

Chuck is nerdier and less girl savvy than Jim. They do look a bit alike.


Spoiler -- his pocket protector protected him this past week. End spoiler.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

i used to watch the old George Reeves Superman show (i'm apparently 104 years old) and he'd explain Clark Kent's bulletproofiness by the silver dollar he kept in his breast pocket. good stuff.

trevor mcfur said...

Thanks for the pic Aimee. So, are there any more from that series?

memphish said...

More classiness from Bai Ling.

Holli

FutureAlly said...

I'm curious to know what us girl will get...

I think I'll vote on Holli's choice of a shirtless Peter Petrelli.

trevor mcfur said...

Is Bai Ling basically the Chinese Paris Hilton? She doesn't seem to have any discernable acting talent, and she certainly isn't what I'd call attractive (I wouldn't say that she's ugly, either, more unusual looking). Is she just famous for being famous?

Anonymous said...

What about this?

PalmerEldritch said...

trevor, yeah. she's just famous for being obnoxious. as far as i can tell anyhow.

anonymous, put that away before Aimee makes a new thread just to post that picture.

elias said...

Quality gift.

Anybody see Pushing Daisies? I want an Anna Friel update.

trevor mcfur said...

Has Pushing Daisies started yet? I had programmed the TiVo to record it.

The real question ... did anyone subject themselves to Caveman? Was it as awful as it looks?

memphish said...

Pushing Daisies starts tonight. I've got the DVR set.

Holli

stephsmith said...

I admit it. I watched Cavemen. It made me chuckle.

Anonymous said...

oh right - The "pie-lette" just showed up on my EZTV feed. I do hope it's good.

aimee in little rock said...

Hachi Machi, anonymous...thanks!

Christopher said...

Hi kids - Christopher here.

How did I only manage to hear yesterday that Pamela Anderson is going to marry Rick Salomon (the guy in the Paris Hilton knobbing vid)?

They'll be producing "stolen" sex films at a fster production rate than Hong Kong.

trevor mcfur said...

More bad news for the New England Patriots. They're being sued for Cameragate by the guy that's suing Barry Bonds.

FutureAlly said...

Thanks anonymous!

/lol @ an anonymous finally doing a good thing! ;)

memphish said...

Steph's on the latest Married Man podcast. You'll have to let us know if you put Big Ed in his place like Dale suggests.

Holli

t-dot kim said...

I watched Cavemen...it was...interesting. I was surprised I laughed out loud at one part.

I also like Chuck. Chuck himself is no "Jim" from the Office, but he's a very close second. I find it hard to believe that a guy like Chuck would have trouble socializing with girls--he's not awkward enough (if that makes any sense).

Regarless thank you NBC for Jim, Chuck, and Peter Petrelli.

PalmerEldritch said...

ah! its the Canadians who we can blame for Caveman being on the air. :P

anyhow, what would happen if Caveman ended up being a really great show? man, all we naysayers would look the fool. luckily, it won't be a really great show so we don't have to worry.

t-dot kim said...

Kirk, that's it--blame Canada. That's your answer to everything. I am embarassed that I watched it. It will be cancelled in 2 weeks.

Jimmy said...

Kim, Cavemen I bet will be cancelled the same time Geico cancel my insurance (pay your fucking bill on time, Phillips)!!!!

Aimee...thanksforthe Evangeline pic...one of her best, I think :)

PalmerEldritch said...

i'm just acting up against Canadians because I have yet to find a local Tim Horton's. :(

MB said...

More stuff at Der SPLOG that I lovingly cut and pasted from various sources (...okay, maybe 2 sources).

Kim -
I keep meaning to ask b/c I forgot - what is Tim Hortons?

Alirio said...

In the immortal words of George Takei: Oh my!

t-dot kim said...

MB...Tim Hortons' is a Canadian right-of-passage. It's a coffee/donut/sandwich/soup shop. All Canadian comfort food. Tim Hortons' coffee is like crack to some people and they will slice your throat if you get in between them and their morning cup of coffee.

The chili is the greatest. It somes in a bread bowl, and I highly recommend it!

PalmerEldritch said...

alirio, that was fantastic.

it also brought to mind Sulu's verbal bitchslap of Christian Slater.

"You got a hearing problem, Mister?!"

/Undiscovered Country

Jordan from the 206 said...

THANKS AIMEE!!!

(wipes up drool from desk)

Jordan from the 206 said...

Trevor. That suit against the Patriots is hilarious. The same dude sued Michael Vick and has sued such stars as David Beckham, OJ Simpson, Jeff Gordan, The Williams sisters, 50 Cent, Mike Tyson, and others. And each and every one is hilarious. Here are a few:

And for more, just search for Jonathan Lee Riches. The dude is comic gold.

memphish said...

Some Texan was convicted Monday of doing dirty deals with Sadaam Hussein. No his name was not George Bluth, but that's what I thought of.

Holli

trevor mcfur said...

Was it Nellie Bluth?

PalmerEldritch said...

kablamo.

FutureAlly said...

maybe it was Nichael Bluth.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Here's a comprehensive summary of Jonathan Lee Riches and all of his lawsuits against celebrities and athletes.

JLR case history

If you have the time, read a couple. They are some of the funniest things ever. If you aren't familiar with the guy. He's an inmate in some state pen who files some of the craziest suits ever. He has quite the active imagintion. Somebody needs to publish a book of these things.

PalmerEldritch said...

he needs to file a lawsuit on behalf of the Penis Power lady. can you imagine the verbiage in a lawsuit like that?

Jonathan Lee Riches said...

Question. Why does PalmerEldritch refer to Bionic Woman as Bionica Jones?

PalmerEldritch said...

cuz i couldn't remember her character's name... would have been better if there were a good story behind that, eh?

just couldn't remember Jamie Summers. Jaime Summers? i still cant spell the name.

my girlfriend refers to Tom Brady's baby as Football Jones.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Trevor, What did you think about this part of Mr. Riches' law suit against the Patriots?

"Defendants cheated during the 2005 Super bowl against the Philidelphia Eagles. Before the game Tom Brady put a recording device in Donovan McNabb’s Chunky Soup. He ate it."

stephsmith said...

Kim, you forgot to thank NBC for Coach Eric Taylor who returns Friday night.
Jeez, Bionic Woman stinks. Or I didn't think it was physically possible but this both sucks and blows at the same time.

PalmerEldritch said...

jordan, i hope that Earl meets this Mr. Riches guy tomorrow night.

steph, i thought that Bionic Woman was better than last week. of course, i'm just looking for it to be a 2000s version of Knight Rider or one of those shows.

"oh noes! the local arcade owner is teh corrupts! get him, bionica!"

the show definitely seems like something that the BSG crew does on their off-time. but its mildly interesting and it looks like Bionica Jones dyed her hair more brunettey.

i can't stress enough just how much less annoying Annoying Sister is than Annoying Deaf Sister.

PalmerEldritch said...

oh! i thought that "Grey's Anatomy"'s Doctor McBigot was an interesting addition. admittedly, i'm waiting for him to end up being someone prejudiced against cyborgs or something. "i hate you, bionica jones! you and all bionic people everywhere!"

at the least, he looks cool while shooting the bejeezus out of stuff.

memphish said...

Still haven't watched the Bionic one. Still love Lindsey Wagner. But I do know who won Top Chef. Don't you want to know MB?

So has anyone watched Dirty Sexy Money? What a stupid name. I DVRed last week and this week, but haven't watched yet. And how were the Daisies?

I've got to spend tomorrow on a field trip at the zoo with 2nd graders. Yes you can pity me now. I'm seriously thinking about leaving the iPhone at home. Otherwise I'll be on it and lose a child. Which is bad form.

Holli

MB said...

Jordan - I haven't read Mr. Riches' lawsuit yet, but that quote almost made me spit out my water - lmao

Kim - thanks for the Hortons lowdown - now I'm interested. I must go when I finally visit Vancouver BC (which WILL happen...at some future point). I actually want to go back to Toronto someday (with the fam) since I enjoyed the hell out of it last time....which...was like 20 years ago, so I'm sure it's new and improved now (and I'll get lost b/c I'll SAY I know where I'm going...) :)

Holli - nope don't tell me who won - it's recording to the DVR right now and I promised the wife I would wait. Thanks for thinking of me though.

Damn! Bionic Woman slipped through my fingers - forgot to set a SERIES recording (slaps forehead). Sounds mediocre though.

MB said...

Aimee - I never said thank you for today's photo. zowie!

dharmalars said...

taking a break this week folks.

stephsmith said...

Oh, that's ok, ralph-. Thanks for letting us know.
Holli, I'm going on a field trip today also. Going to see Indian mounds or something. At least it's not Chucky Cheese.
Crap! I forgot about Pushing Daisies.

memphish said...

Hey Palmer, Does the girlfriend want to see The Jane Austen Book Club? Maggie Grace is in it.

In the movie, Grace plays Allegra, the openly gay 20-year-old

Holli

Joel in NYC said...

Why do people think that Maggie Grace is a super babe? She's sort of cute, but she's lemon faced like Renee Zel-whatshername, and she has little beady eyes. Plus, she's a stick thin amazon woman. Now that Evangeline picture on the other hand, HOT1! But I might be a bit biased because she looks a lot like my wife.

PalmerEldritch said...

what's wrong with Amazon women? :p

welcome to the blogspot, joel.

holli, i don't think that my lovely girlfriend wants to see that movie (god bless her). although, maggie's character sounds interesting...

the gal pal is excited for "The Time Traveler's Wife" which they are apparently making a movie of. i might be more excited about that if she hadn't told me the end of the book immediately after finishing it. :)

aimee, here's my submission for the "picture for the gentlewomen of the blogspot": Josh Holloway defies his shoulderless label!

/Josh Holloway for Cartoon Network's Johnny Bravo

Joel from NYC said...

Palmer,

Your girlfriend and my wife seem like they would get along well. I think that she's read Time Traveler's wife 3 or 4 times now.

She's also excited because I told her that I thought she looked like Evangeline Lilly. Anyone's wives, girlfriends, friends, look like anyone famous?

Palmer, I hope you're girl isn't an amazon or a Maggie Grace look-alike because then i'd feel really bad about my previous post....

PalmerEldritch said...

nope. she's 5'6" and a brunette.

but everyone's favorite T-Dot Kim is a tall girl. so, gotta defend the tall girls.

FutureAlly said...

So no Holli and no Steph today? Looks like I'm stuck with the boys today, unless Kim or Aimee make a cameo appearance.

Holli-
Don't know if you'll get to read this but Dirty Sexy Money is pretty good. I'm officially hooked, the first episode is interesting, but after watching the second episode, I liked it even better.

Also, Pushing Daisies is pretty cool. Something different. Interesting concept, likeable characters and it has an interesting look. I'll be watching Pushing Daisies, even though it interferes with my Top Model watching. So I have to record Top Model to be able to watch Pushing Daisies.

Alirio said...

MB: Forget Toronto.

Montreal is where it's at!

GO HABS!

FutureAlly said...

So what exactly is going on in Montreal?

/i think anywhere in Canada would be interesting.

PalmerEldritch said...

McGill has a building named after Shatner.

And there's a big hill or something in Montreal. Right?

Never been there. But my friend used to live there and only got his apartment robbed two or three times.

MB said...

Alirio - I totally want to go to Montreal as well - never been, and have wanted to go my whole life. I may even get to use some of the French I haven't spoken in about 10 years - lol. I have a friend who went to college there (I forget the name of the school) and she loved it as well.

MB said...

Is McGill the main school in Montreal? I think maybe that's where my friend went.

Johnny Ghostwatch said...

Dhamalars:

"taking a break this week folks."

Oops. That voicemail MP3 I just sent you won't really work then - silly me.

In it, I unveil my ukulele.

You heard me.

PalmerEldritch said...

kablamo.

all too easy.

PalmerEldritch said...

Halo 3 Review by a guy who reminds me a bit of Ghostwatch and likes to swear.

Also, the dude makes kickass graphic adventure sidescrollers in his spare time. Weird.

FutureAlly said...

"I unveil my ukulele."

/that's what she said

Anonymous said...

more like 'that's what he said'

no worries dharmalards. this is the rough time of year anyway. all the shoot the shit style podcasts seem to be losing a bit of steam right now. no biggie. good time for resting up.

Alirio said...

Montreal has the following (as compared to Toronto)

Bars close at 3:00 AM Not 1:00AM

You can get beer or wine at any corner store (known as d├ępaneurs)

Thursday is the beginning of the week-end

European charm and architecture

A flagship Apple store*

*Comming in 2008

Sorry Kim, TO is nice but not everyone looks forward to Mondays ;-) When's the next TLI coming?

Johnny Ghostwatch said...

PalmerEldritch:

"reminds me a bit of Ghostwatch"

I see where you're coming from, although probably a more salient point of reference, in terms of language and delivery (so beware of swears and a couple of shocking clips) at least, would be:

Charlie
Brooker's
Screen
Wipe

Anonymous said...

Montreal was shitty when I was there - rude people and a complete absence of charm. Quebec was better.

Buffalo Pete said...

I got herpes in Montreal. Damn French speaking prostitutes.
