Lucille Number 2: Do you like ham?
Carl Weathers: No... I love it.

FutureAlly said...

Carl Weathers: Whoa, whoa, whoa. There’s still plenty of meat on that bone. Now, you take this home, throw it in a pot, add some broth, a potato. Baby, you’ve got a stew going.

downloading now...

stephsmith said...

Tobias: Oh, my God. You are Carl Weathers, the actor. I went to San Francisco to attend your stage-fighting workshop, but you never showed up.

Carl Weathers: I got bumped from that flight. Apparently, they give you $300 if you get bumped. It’s this crazy loophole in the system that the wrong guy discovered. Guess where I won’t be going?

stephsmith said...

Post from last thread no one will see: Anyone know Ava Maria from Hitman and how I can find it on iTunes?

PalmerEldritch said...

ave maria. with an E. wikipedia says its by Schubert.

if the spelling doesn't help then try to think of an artist who might sing it... like Paul Potts! :p

FutureAlly said...

I think you can't find it cause you're spelling it wrong. Try searching for AVE MARIA.

FutureAlly said...

Steph, I looked it up on iTunes and there's one that sounds like the one from the comercial.

Ave Maria by Christina England.

MB said...

w00t! can't wait to listen.

MB said...

DAMN!


....kablammo.


I'm losing it

stephsmith said...

That is it.thanks

FutureAlly said...

yay!!! MB is back!!! how's life, Dad? Are you all settled into your new home? Is The Deuce making you wish you could sleep?

PalmerEldritch said...

i should prolly skip this podcast until after my post-christmas Arrested Development seasons 2 and 3 marathon, right?

/hint hint, santa

Thanks for the podcast Ben and Ralph! (And Jay and Colleen) And giggling Producer Ryan.

trevor mcfur said...

Ally, you stole my favorite Carl Weathers quote. So I'll go with...

Carl Weathers: Now wait a minute. This is just purely a social call. You know, just two adults getting a stew on, man.

Buster: I don’t know what that means, but it sounds disgusting.

trevor mcfur said...

Why am I so tiny? And no, that's not what he said!

FutureAlly said...

sorry, that's my favorite carl weathers quote as well. the one you posted is my second fave.

you ARE tiny.

(and that IS what she said!)

FutureAlly said...

i'm small too! WTF!

LOL

oh producer ryan, you have such a sweet giggle...

loved the podcast, guys! colleen and jay did a good job under pressure. i didn't know a couple of those either.

Mr. Chris said...

It's a nightmare buying classical music on iTunes if you care about what you're hearing. It took me ages to find a decent copy of Beethoven's Symphony No 7 in A major, Op 92: II. Allegretto (you'd know it if you heard it).

Curiously, that's the same version of Ave Maria I downloaded a while ago. I don't know if, by some amazing coincidence, it's the version from the film (any good, by the way?) but it's as clean and professional a recording of that piece as you're ever likely to find.

As much as videogame films tend by their nature to be pointless, they won big Chris Points for the inclusion of Ave Maria, having been a fan of its use in the fourth game in the series.

MB said...

Sorry to post and run earlier Ally

Things are good. The Deuce is great, and is the noisiest, gulpy-est, snortiest bottle drinker I've ever heard - lol. It cracks me up every time, I feel like I'm cradling a nursing wildebeast or something.

The new house is quite nice...especially with my spankin' new LCD TV in it! Yes, there was a sale...I went...money was spent. HD stuff does indeed look awesome on it - Lost MUST return now! I cannot wait to watch it in HD. The tradeoff however, I think, is that standard def. stuff looks crappier on it than on a regular TV. The sound is better all around though.

Also, posted on the BBS - finally got to watch Pushing Daisies (episode with the equestrian/horse murders). Really great - original, well written and I'm interested in all the main characters. Good stuff.

Mr. Chris said...

Nautica Thorne!? I didn't know she'd crossed over to the mainstream.

Erm, *cough*, I mean - Nautica Who?

I can't get behind the Danielle Harris one - partly because she remains unclothed while having her interior explored with a butcher knife, but mainly because (like Ricci) I still think of her as a child actress so when they get 'em out I feel like a disgusting old perv.

My wife never understood his complaint of mine until Michael Cera got down to his underpants in Superbad, at which point she understood it entirely (and I hadn't even registered it).

Jordan from the 206 said...

Lost Ads Coming to the Big Screen

"Sources tell me ABC has secured a deal to air promos for the upcoming fourth season of Lost (with new footage!) before all movies rated PG and above in Screenvision and NCM chains in December."

gillian said...

I just blue myself!

Love it. Can't wait to listen, yay!

trevor mcfur said...

I saw Hotel Chevalier, and the nude scene itself doesn't show you much ... I guess it's got that, "Wow, it's Natalie Portman's ass!" thing going for it.

And the two strippers in Knocked Up? Maybe scariest nude scene ever ... especially the one with the mishapen double-H's.

stephsmith said...

I don't remember the nude strippers in Knocked Up nor the nude Sienna Miller. I hate to hear Ashley Judd has been forced to resort to nudity.

Hey ralph-, I just realized something. No Mark Mothersbaugh on the Darjeeling soundtrack.
Jordan, expect a nice email from me.

Mr. Chris said...

Blimey!

Max Headroom is back!

PalmerEldritch said...

all this talk of Ashley Judd gettin' naked reminds me of Wesley Crusher's main squeeze, Robin Lefler!

/talked to a dude who made out with ashley judd
//go, wheaton, go!

Mr. Chris said...

Here's Max in video form.

And as BBC2 is about to show the end of season one of Heroes (this is how far behind us poor sods are), they have splashed out for character specific channel idents:

Nathan
Peter
Noah/HRG
Clairebear

We're nothing if not stylish.

Mr. Chris said...

I don't remember the nude strippers in Knocked Up

Here they are - Quite obviously NSFW


nor the nude Sienna Miller

Here she is: ALSO quite obviously NSFW

Good morning!

PalmerEldritch said...

isn't Sienna Miller just about always naked?

speaking of naked blondes, Hayden Panetierre was on some sort of Christmasey thing the other night on network TV and even though she was most likely wearing clothing, the pre-recorded Christmas message (in November) was filmed from her shoulders up with her hair covering the straps of her dress to give the illusion of Christmas nudity. classy!

trevor mcfur said...

There's no nudity that's more classy than Christmas nudity. Just ask Martha Stewart.

I've always liked Ashley Judd and thought she was a good actress. And she's never been shy about taking it off in her films, which is always a good thing. But I'm starting to wonder, is she a good actress who picks really bad films, or is she just a bad actress?

memphish said...

I like this video not so much for the writers' strike aspect as the stay-at-home wife one.

Holli

FutureAlly said...

Speaking of Christmas, no nudity involved, if you go to your local Wal-Mart and/or Lowes, you'll find the tags I designed for the Christmas trees. The fresh ones, not the artificial ones. I'll have to see if I can find a sample to show you guys what I do.

memphish said...

Jay and Jack better watch out when they go to Hawaii. According to Josh Holloway they may fall victim to human trafficking there. (The video is on Dark UFO's Media Mentions.) Too lazy to link.

Holli

memphish said...

Cool Ally. I think we're going to Lowe's to get our live tree tonight. Anyone know if they'll put it on your car for you or do they make you do it?

Holli

andrew. said...

i've always been a fan of Ashley Judd, because i like her as an actress and i've always had a crush on her. She does get naked briefly in "Bug" but its not a sexy context.

I never understand things like Mr. Skin where they're happy to get a peek at BOOB no matter how awkward the situation (i'm sure "Schindler's List" has a long write-up). It's the same reason that "9 1/2 Weeks" is considered a sexy date movie even though the characters are completely despicable.

"Bug" is a really good movie though. It's a great return to form for Director William Friedkin (The Exorcist, The French Connection). It kind of got mis-marketed as a horror movie when its really a psychological thriller.

PalmerEldritch said...

kablamo.

PalmerEldritch said...

woah woah woah. you designed christmas tree tags for Wally's? that's freakin' awesome, ally.

should have known you were in the graphic design field from that old mac in your cubicle. :)

i wore a Quark shirt (also free) over my free Bionica Jones t-shirt yesterday. but i sincerely hope you're using Adobe CS over Quark Express.

/used to provide tech support for graphic design types

andrew. said...

- i hate Adobe Illustrator. Give me the 1-2 punch of Photoshop & Quark any day.

- I'm watching "Entourage" this week. I'm waiting on getting my hands on season 3 now. It's a fun show, probably one of the only meta-Hollywood stories that i actually like, plus season 2 featured my crush, Mandy Moore.

- what is it about "Pushing Daisies" that even though i absolutely love the show, i'm never in a hurry to watch it. I still haven't watched the Pee Wee Herman episode yet. I guess it's the self-contained nature of the episodes.

- Christmas spirit? wwwjbmovie.com

FutureAlly said...

Holli- I think if you ask nicely they'll help you take it to your car. I've never bought a tree there, but I have bought appliances and they always help carry that out.

Palmer- I still use Quark, but for the Lowes tag I used InDesign. CS is the most awesomest thing there is, no comparison to Quark.

trevor mcfur said...

Weird work stories of 2007.

Check out #7.

Mr. Chris said...

Just listening to the Podcast and got to The Final Countdown section.

Assuming that the music is added later, Jay appears to have perfect pitch.

Pretty impressive.

Mr. Chris said...

The Mayonnegg.

Before

After

Actualy, there's a worrying number of Mayonnegg videos...

They seem to prove something of a gender split in the ability to eat one.

FutureAlly said...

OMG!!! i can't stop laughing at the weird work stories, specifically #14.

Alirio said...

Best episode of Dharmalars EVER.....

had me pissing myself....

Unfortunately I was already in bed

I don't recall making nay mistakes...

memphish said...

A very important PSA, especially if you have or think you may ever have kids.

elias said...

Classic Lars

PalmerEldritch said...

elias, today was Joe Strummer and Mick Jones day at work. Clash, Mescaleros, Big Audio Dynamite, Carbon/Silicon...

elias said...

Lovely stuff, Palmer - Acton Town Hall 2002!

Can't wait for the next Lars. Hopefully Bender's Big Score will be delivered before then.

Mr. Chris said...

I illegaled myself a Bender's Big Score yesterday and paid for an official copy today.

Proof that sometimes it works.

stephsmith said...

Are there any Dharmalars fans who haven't seen AD? I can't imagine there are. Great podcast guys. Was Franklin mentioned? Next time.

stephsmith said...

http://www.craveonline.com/articles/scifi/04649154/christian_bale_in_terminator_4.html





NOOOO!!!!

PalmerEldritch said...

steph, i haven't seen seasons 2 or 3. .. yet!

http://arresteddevelopment.msn.com/ craps out during the season two premiere. :(

bale in T4 could be badass. as long as he uses an American accent if he's John Connor.

stephsmith said...

palmer, I've watched most of season two via msn. I don't know why it's crapping out for you. Do what I do. Try over and over until it works. Highlights of season two- Wee Britain(Morgan's favorite), the Veals(as in Ann's parents), chicken dances.

PalmerEldritch said...

yeah, hopefully, the eight million hints i've dropped to my girlfriend will pay off and i'll have seasons 2 and 3 on dvd by the 25th. :)

if not, then i'll order them on the 26th.

stephsmith said...

I forgot something, my favorite: the Iraq jokes.
I was wondering. Will the podcast spoil those, few I'm sure, who haven't watched yet? Or enhance the viewing pleasure? For you, palmer, it 's made you more anxious to see the other two seasons?

PalmerEldritch said...

i'm skipping the podcast for now. :(

elias said...

Wee Britain is one of my favourites too.

A lot of references went over my head because I only finished watching season 3 a few days ago. But I've already started from the beginning again.

memphish said...

The Wee Britain thing wasn't one of my favorites, no offense to those in Big Britain which is a favorite of mine. Dave Thomas' accent drove me nuts and I hated the "Mr. X" refrain. I know it was meant to be cheesy, but to me it played out long before they ended it.

Holli

elias said...

The level of detail and the crap accents made it so amusing.

Also the Merry Poppuns tourist attraction - classy.

MB said...

Steph - you asked if there are any Dharmalars fans who haven't watched AD (sheepishly raises hand)...that would be me.

It will get watched at some point. And I know it is funny without watching it because the quotes are funny even out of context, not having watched the show.

PalmerEldritch said...

this post is flagrant setup for the next.

MB said...

ka-f-ing-blammo!

PalmerEldritch said...

huzzah! good to have you back, Dalek MB.

how's the splog going?

stephsmith said...

mb, you are excused since you have been crazy busy as of late.

stephsmith said...

Palmer, don't you get G4?

PalmerEldritch said...

indeed, i do. but i barely ever watch it. perreira and his LOST hate turned me off of that channel. and olivia got a weird orange tan...

anyhow, i may devote some time to set up some DVRing of the appropriate episodes. i keep getting all of season 1 on my DVR but i own the DVDs.

PalmerEldritch said...

i'm pretty sure that i saw Blaire (Blair?) at Comic-Con.

/from G4, not The Facts of Life

trevor mcfur said...

Would have been more excited if it was Blaire from FoL.

trevor mcfur said...

After spending a few minutes on wikipedia, I'd like to retract my last posting.

PalmerEldritch said...

saw this Blair too.

pretty sure.

PalmerEldritch said...

Wonder Woman?

andrew. said...

R.I.P. Evel Knievel.
that gorge wasn't going to jump itself.

stephsmith said...

I approve of the new Wonder Woman.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Cool Lost deleted scene!

Mr. Chris said...

Evel Knievel's dead? Damn, Kanye West must be kicking himself.

Jordan from the 206 said...

More Lost stuff

MB said...

lmao Jordan. You'd think I'd tire of Rick Astley denigration after 15+ years, but no - always a go to for the laugh.

Palmer - thanks for the kick in the ass re: the SPLOG (that sounds sarcastic, but I'm serious) I've been ignoring it sadly. There's a whopping ONE piece of production/shooting news I added (which forward looking people have most likely seen, but just in case).

the nooge said...

Hey, Ralph or anybody in California get a chance to attend the ongoing American Gladiators tapings?

Jordan from the 206 said...

Another Lost video for those with Lost withdrawls

Jordan from the 206 said...

yet more lost stuff!

memphish said...

I loved that last one Jordan. The one before it didn't work for me though.

Got to decorate the tree today. It's going to be in the 70s again tomorrow and raining. Such is the typical Southern Xmas season.

Holli

andrew. said...

her?

looked her up on imdb. Apparently, contrary to MYOKMw/SAS rumors, Mae Whitman played Ann in all of her appearances. Marta was however replaced.

It's as ann as the nose on plain's face.

Fun fact: Mae Whitman also played the deaf version of Bionic Woman's sister, Becca Sommers, in the pilot.

trevor mcfur said...

There were two Anns. She was played by Allesandra Toreson in her first episode, and by Mae Whitman subsequently. I think that there might have been a big gap between Ann's first episode and her later episodes (like, maybe mid-late season 1 to early season 2).

stephsmith said...

memphish, after 12 Christmases I have accepted the fact that my husband is a procrastinator and we will eventually get a tree up. If not, the Earth will continue to spin. That's what I keep telling myself.

memphish said...

Steph,

I went and bought the tree by myself yesterday. Got it off the roof of my car and into a bucket of water by myself and then insisted I have help getting it into the stand and house last night. The new stand was great. It turned out to be a lot less painful than usual. Then I got all the boxes from the attic myself. Put the lights on myself. Unpacked all the ornaments myself. Then the kid helped with the ornaments. By the time hubby got home this afternoon, it was all done and all the boxes back in the attic, and I had even showered. I'm over this being a family thing.

Holli

stephsmith said...

You go, girl. I hear you.

trevor mcfur said...

Things happen when you wear ELEGANZA!!!!

andrew. said...

- serves me right for taking imdb as gospel

- Jay & Jack's ice-rink might have a bad season: unless they can make ice out of something else

- i grew up with Christmas trees from tree lots, but since i left home my mom has switched to a tree in a box and it's 100x easier. she still misses the real deal though.

stephsmith said...

Solid, Solid as Iraq.

memphish said...

I hope all you men of the blogspot put that "popcorn knit" suit on your Xmas list. Popcorn knit goes right on your body and makes you look g-o-o-d all over.

Today I get to get my mom's tree out of the box. I hit Xmas from all angles. All I have to do is set up the tree and then I'm leaving the kid to ornament it.

Holli

trevor mcfur said...

There's a ladies version of the popcorn knit too, Holli.

PalmerEldritch said...

just saw "Meet The Robinsons." hey, it was on Blu-Ray. ok?

anyhow, i was pleasantly surprised. i had really low expectations and ended up enjoying it. lots of "hey, who's doing that voice?!" going on as there are a lot of recognizable names. i won't say them all but Nicole Sullivan and Adam West are in the same damned movie.

stephsmith said...

It's ok as long as you call it animation instead of cartoon, p. I'm debating seeing Ratatouille. I know. It's good. But then again, it's rats in a kitchen. My bbf said it's so realistic-looking that it really disgusted her.

stephsmith said...

bbf= bff

stephsmith said...

Help! I'm addicted to this game. I can't stop.

Brennan said...

Ahoy!

Saw this commercial today, but a shorter version.

PalmerEldritch said...

brennan, bruce campbell is the man. and that commercial is genius.

steph and holli, any idea when Burn Notice starts repeating? despite the fact that i can't stand Fiona, that was a pretty entertaining show. solid 80s/90s MacGyver/A-Team/Hulk/Knight Rider kind of thing. i'd like to catch more than the four or five episodes that i saw.

memphish said...

Palmer, I don't know anything about them re-airing Burn Notice. I guess it all depends on the strike. It could be something they'd run marathon form over the winter if this was a typical season. "Tired of unending snow and slush; watch women in bikinis, Bruce Campbell in loud shirts and we promise Michael will take his shirt off at least once per episode. Burn Notice Marathon on USA."

I also don't know when there will be a DVD. The first 4 episodes are up on USA's website and only the pilot on Hulu. Sounds like they don't want you to catch up.

Holli

memphish said...

Special Preview Dharmalars this week?

Holli

stephsmith said...

I have Bubba Ho-tep on DVD. Why haven't I watched yet? 107

PalmerEldritch said...

DOMO KUN LOVE KABLAMO!!!!



p.s. Bubba Ho-Tep is fantastic. but not for such as Morgan. foul language and sexual content.

trevor mcfur said...

More Dark Knighty goodness!!!

PalmerEldritch said...

don't worry; it'll look better in the movie then against a white background.



right? please?

trevor mcfur said...

I think that the Joker looks pretty cool. Can't say that I'm crazy about all of the armor on the Batsuit, and the posed 'action' shot looks a little silly, but we know from the first one that Bats is gonna look cool too.

dharmalars said...

Prepare to be blown away on Wednesday!

stephsmith said...

I still hate Christian Bale but the Joker looks fantastic.

I just returned from a seminar on internet safety. Man, the web sounds like such a scary place.

Support the writers & win LOST (& BSG) goodies:
Story about the raffle
where to go to enter:pencils2mediamoguls.com
i think these send-something-to-the-studios protests are wasteful & ineffective (now, i understand the peanut one worked) but i do support the writers and i do want a Season 3 boxset.

speaking of the boxset, did anyone pre-order theirs yet?

trevor mcfur said...

Interesting comment section in that article.

More not so good news about the strike.

Here too.

trevor mcfur said...

Can't say that I quite understand what the purpose is of the pencil thing. The Jericho campaign worked because it showed there's a lot of support out there, not necessarily being reflected in the ratings, for a show that was probably just on the wrong side of bubble in terms of being canceled. Do the studios really care if the fans are on the writers' side when, from their perspective, they're looking at millions of dollars worth of loss? Do they think the fans won't come back once the strike ends?

PalmerEldritch said...

actually, trevor, most studio heads are vampiric undead and, though they have graphite in their middles, a delivery of a thousands wooden stakes sends the message that the writers are deadly serious.

MB said...

Merry Monday people!

Always good to take anonymous people's word on the web with a pinch (or more) of salt, but some
people claim to have seen a early cut of Cloverfield

As I am psyched for this movie (and very hopeful), I hope the kind words are true.

MB said...

More cut & pasting (with links at least) at der SPLOG - including more production pics (all of it can also be viewed at Dark UFO)

PalmerEldritch said...

cute baby animal alert

memphish said...

Looking forward to Wednesday Ben and Ralph!

I have not pre-ordered my DVDs but will be at Target at 8 am next Tuesday so that I do not have to wait for delivery. In the meantime my goal this week is to finish re-watching Season 2 and all my Xmas shopping so that I can dedicate the rest of December to becoming a LOST couch potato. I've only got LTDA to go to finish S2.

The strike news is depressing in the extreme.

Was that kitten in a tragic ear-bobbing accident? Or is that how they start off in life only to have their ears, uh, drop?

Holli, Dog Person

t-dot kim said...

P,

You must know when I come into work and check the blogspot. Thanks for the cute animal update. It was the first thing I saw when I came in. That cat looks like Puss-N-Boots from Shrek.

What else is new with everyone? I woke up to 2 feet of snow... :(

t-dot kim said...

Ralph & Ben great episode! Very funny. I laughed out loud at the Wings/Pilot joke...it was so lame-- it was brilliant!

PalmerEldritch said...

kim, that pic is awesome. you look so official. when i hear the local tv/radio traffic people, i scoff and say "pshaw. you, sir, are no T-Dot Kim."

holli, i think that kitten is a Scottish Fold since her ears are folded like that and she's not a newborn. although, judging from the alphabet, maybe she's a Korean Fold or something?

kim (again!), i could have used some of that snow. i only got six inches (twss) and ended up having to go to work. meh.

any Blu-Rayers out there getting Lost Season 3 on Blu-Ray?

MB said...

No snow here (at least none that's stuck) - but we're getting deluged with rain and wind, and schools are already closing from flooding! Dayum! It's like it came out of nowhere - 'nowhere' actually being the Oregon coast.
Having just moved into a neighborhood full of trees, I'm hoping the trees in my front yard all help each other out and don't lose any large limbs in the vicinity of my roof.

Kim - Palmer's right - that pic rocks, I can hear your on-air voice just looking at it.

Can't wait to show that kitten video to the Ace - damn cute.

MB said...

Hey, question from an HD newbie (for Palmer, Jordan, or whoever has an appropriate player) - do Blu-Ray and/or HD DVD look as good or better than the HD stuff that's being broadcast on HD cable channels? Cause I'm so loving watching stuff in HD. It even makes fishing shows excellent to watch for me
(all props to GOING fishing, and to people who love fishing shows)

t-dot kim said...

MB, I'm no HD expert, but from what I hear the HDDVDs and BluRay discs are on par with the HD channels on your HDTV.

Ralph- said...

Palmer, i will receive my copy of LOST: Season Three on Blu-ray hopefully on Wednesday. I will try to watch as many of the features as i can before ben comes over, then we will watch some features, then we will do our show. Look for that DHARMAlars episode LATE Wednesday night on our feed as well as the LPN!!!

memphish said...

Adorable internet animals support the writers. Give up now AMPTP!!!!

Holli

trevor mcfur said...

i liked the non-skateboard riding dog.

Gotta say, the writers are a lot better at PR than the studios. Probably not too surprising, I guess.

MB said...

Thanks Kim!

Hearing you mention snow made me pray that our weather doesn't turn cold and freeze, because people here are fairly inept and use extremely bad judgement when dealing with snow, ice, and driving their car. Granted the terrain can be challenging, and the city doesn't salt the roads and is usually ill-prepared in general when it comes to snow and ice, but I don't remember scenes like this growing up in the Mid-West.

PalmerEldritch said...

mb, re: HD. blu-ray looks friggin sweet. i imagine that HD-DVD looks the same. you'll need cables that can carry a 1080i or 1080p signal. my PS3 came with component cables that i think would only go up to 720p. they may try to sell you an HDMI cable that can go 1080p for 90 bucks (americano) but you can get a comprable cable without a brand name for five or ten bucks. i got mine from www.monoprice.com but i think jordan found one at a local mom and pop computer store for about the same price (if not better).

research the heck out of it ahead of time so there are no bumps in the road. and just in case i've given you poor advice! :)

stephsmith said...

Mom and Pop Computer Store? Those exist? Not here in Po'ville, AL. The weather here is cold(accuweather says it's 35) but no snow. We can't get our stupid, wild dog inside tonight. Hope we don't wake to popsicle pup. Heroes was fantastic!

MB said...

Thanks Palmer! I totally forgot about looking for the HDMI cable for cheaper. The video store I got the TV at sells 'em for like $40, and I SO should have bargained with the guy to throw one in, but I was lame and didn't think of it.

FYI - in addition to monoprice.com, a quick search turned up mycablemart.com which has them for $5-10.

FutureAlly said...

We have a few Mom & Pop Computer stores. Our weather is about 35ยบ F, here too, Steph. Everyone is worried about how cold it is and I hear that it'll go back up to 80 on Friday. Gotta love this Texas weather!

MB said...

i randomly stumbled upon this gem

MB said...

I'm clueless old man over here - I realize there might be an AD reference in that pic - but who are the people?

dharmalars said...

Carl Weathers and Bill Duke from PREDATOR. Bill Duke was on a Sawyer Episode of LOST! Also, footage from PREDATOR was used in AD. plus it totally looks like Carl Weathers is teaching Bill Duke some moves!

THURSDAY!!! refresh your iTunes late at night!

Thanks much Ralph - I WAS curious about the blog pic as well,
but I was wondering aboutt the pic Ally posted of three guys (one of them obviously blue himself).

Who are those guys in the pic you posted Ally?

PalmerEldritch said...

huzzah!!! arresteddevelopment.msn.com finally has the season 2 premiere working!

Ralph- said...

God Speed, Kirk!

Mr. Chris said...

"Refresh your iTunes late at night!".

That'll be Friday morning for a couple of us guys, being as how we're in The FUTURE and everything.

"I'm Tom Jane!"

PalmerEldritch said...

Palmer, I bet msn was down because all the thousands and thousands of Lars listeners had the same idea as you. Or just a coincidence.

PalmerEldritch said...

actually, that'd be diamond paste. right?

stephsmith said...

Damn it! A Pushing Daisies podcast ^

FutureAlly said...

I randomly found those guys online, I have no idea who they really are. They're supposed to be Tobias, Michael and Gob. Although the one that's supposed to be Michael looks like Buster and the one that's supposed to be Gob looks like Michael. Tobias [the one that blue himself ((twss)) ] is the only one that looks accurate to me.

trevor mcfur said...

I can see the bike helment guy being Michael, but I think he kind of looks like Buster too (the guy actually physically looks like Buster a bit). The other dude should trade the jacket in for a Hawaaiian shirt, he'd look like George Michael.

What I really think is, one dude dressed up like Tobias, the other two dudes just came from work as losers without costumes and that's what they came up with. I give the Tobias guy a little credit, but I think that if he was truly brave, all he's be wearing is a pair of cutoffs.

FutureAlly said...

Speaking of George Michael (Michael Cera), Juno comes out this Friday in LA/NY. Anybody going to see it?

Still haven't heard when it's releasing here, but I'm dying to see it.

MB said...

Interesting nugget re: Micheal in S.4 over at the SPLOG

let the speculation begin... (for those who read)

trevor mcfur said...

Sounds like you're telling the illiterate to go to hell.

Producer Ryan said...

The reviews for Juno are stellar. I can't wait to see it.

memphish said...

The special package Ralph needs in order for us to start hitting our refresh buttons in iTunes.

Ralph- said...

ever since the end of season 3 we mentioned that there would be only 2 episodes of the DHARMAlars until Lost returned. One was the Comic Con episode and the other was our DVD Preview a week before the DVD release. I was supposed to get the Blu-ray dvds yesterday so that we could do our annual preview show, but with each day that i dont have them, the pre-view becomes less and less impressive. Our preview show should have been up by now, but it may not be up until tomorrow, but that is doubtful...keep your fingers crossed that i get the discs today, otherwise we wont have a show for you until Saturday. i hate recording on the weekends.

stephsmith said...

ralph-, you are wrong. Anything Dharmalars does is impressive.

FutureAlly said...

I'd like to second the impressiveness that is Dharmalars.

Let's do some Christmas shopping! Let's all go back to the year I was born to shop.

1982 Sears Wish Book

PalmerEldritch said...

We gentiles just don't get the whole kosher thing, eh?

t-dot kim said...

I'm jealous that you get the DVD before me, Ralph!

matthew fox as Racer X...

the 7th picture of 8. Clicky here and then iterate through the pics at the top.

andrew. said...

Speed Racer:
- i really like the trippy aesthetic
- Matthew Fox = stunt stubble
- Spridle looks like a 50 year old man's head on a 3 year old's body
- Chim-Chim = Real chimp!

- Pre-ordered the Lost Season 3 boxset from the 1982 Sears Wishbook & Amazon. We'll see which gets here first.

FutureAlly said...

speaking of Hanukkah hams...

HAPPY HANUKKAH!

I looked through that guy's page and it looks like he has other catalogs available. Here's the link, in case anyone's interested.

TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE

trevor mcfur said...

Wow ... there ain't nothing good about this.

FutureAlly said...

you know, i saw that, but didn't wanna say anything about it. it was too shameful.

MB said...

Ally - I want to see the stuff you posted but the links aren't working for me.
Man, I used to look thru the Sears catalog every Christmas and salivate over all the toys (it was disgusting).

Trevor - that's funny and creepy at the same time.

Who the hell thought that the element they needed to sell clothing was a clown? lol.

MB said...

meant to sign that post...

- Crabbypout Rottennose

Ralph- said...

the fact that the PREview will not be as PRE as we had hoped, makes it less impressive. A week early sounds better than 1 day early, which is what it will end up being, most likely

FutureAlly said...

MB- for some reason when i do links they don't always work. so here is the link for all of the sets of pictures from this guy.

memphish said...

I'm terrified of that child on the clown's lap. MB, I'm with you on loving the Sears Xmas catalog. By 1982 though, I'd moved past Sears to Saks and Lord & Taylor.

Ralph, even if its not a preview you and Ben should still do a podcast about the DVDs. The fact that you won't get it that much earlier than the rest of us slobs makes you a man of the people.

PalmerEldritch said...

ralph, tell me about your blu-ray machine. 1080i or 1080p? screen size? what titles have you watched so far?

Crank on Blu-Ray blew my freakin' mind.

Mr. Chris said...

Remember that over here in The Land of Wonky Teeth we've had the LOST Season 3 box since late October - and all we had to do was pay the equivalent of $120+

You can't say fairer than that.

PalmerEldritch said...

CLICKETH HERE FOR SPEED RACER TRAILER

memphish said...

The Speed Racer look is certainly interesting. I used to watch that show as a kid all the time. Thank you Ted Turner! Then when we were legal driving age we would drive through a twisty-turny neighborhood with our lights off and say we were playing Speed Racer.

I just noticed that CBS and NBC have announced their winter schedules. Hopefully ABC will follow suit, maybe today, maybe Monday and we'll finally know when LOST will return.

Mr. Chris said...

Cute though it is, when I encountered an Amazon link for an adult sized woman's shirt called

Puppy Tennis

I have to confess this isn't the image that entered my mind.

memphish said...

Damon and Carlton speak. Tiny perhaps spoilers about the triangle and Walt included. The Sci Fi Wire article says LOST returns Feb. 6.
