First!

Ralph- said...

spread the christmas joy!

PalmerEldritch said...

huzzah!

i showed the gal pal that pic and instead of saying "cool! ralph and ben who i met at comic-con are hanging out with jorge garcia!!!" she commented on ben's sideburns.

well, i was impressed that jorge was watching LOST on your PS3!

memphish said...

This makes my day! And then there were 5 -- commentaries!

Kablamo!

trevor mcfur said...

Holy shit, those are sideburns? I thought it was an Amish beard.

Either way, thanks for the early Christmas present guys!!!

PalmerEldritch said...

now i just need the season 3 DVDs... :\

this is insane. Congrads for all of us :)

"See You All in 2008!!!"
fucking liars.

awesome. quite the coup. maybe when the whole series is collected in a super-duper collectors version they'll throw this on so future us's aren't saying "4 commentaries? really?"

when my discs get here i'm going to listen the shit out of this!

Ralph- said...

guys and gals, we had NO IDEA that this was going to go down when we recorded on Wed. we are as stoked as anyone!!!!

Alirio said...

I for one am very disappointed that Jack was not present...

Awesome show you guys!

Ralph- said...

What are we, chop liver?

Jack was not in california.

PalmerEldritch said...

what happened to flatten jay's trademark hair?!

Ralph- said...

KA-

Ralph- said...

BLAMO!

PalmerEldritch said...

i was really hoping that you'd break out a KABLAMO! when the chicken shack blew up.

i know i would have. of course, i'd be alone in my living room doing commentary alone without a dvd, a podcast, a celebrity, or a producer ryan...

so, i guess you're still ahead.

thoroughly entertaining commentary. keep 'em coming (twss).

trevor mcfur said...

The Dark Knight trailer is now officially on-line.

memphish said...

Ralph you are definitely on Santa's naughty list. Of course Santa himself appears to be on it as well.

Can Jorge hook you up with Damon and Carlton during the strike? I'd like a Through The Looking Glass commentary.

ralph, caught the merry christmas youtube video: thanks for giving the fans what they've been demanding to see!

PS> Good Luck with your latest interview Ralph

elias said...

KABLAMO!

elias said...

I'm still waiting for my effing DVDs to arrive so the commentary will have to wait.

Cheers for the smutty seasonal greetings!

PalmerEldritch said...

at home today since while work will not cancel during an actual snow storm, it will cancel the day after a snow storm. um... yup.

anyhow, home for the day. watched the Price is Right and am making a gingerbread house for the first time in years. snow days kick ass.

stephsmith said...

The only thing that beats a snow day is elementary school Christmas party, p.

t-dot kim said...

I wish I had a snow day. We had about a foot and a half of snow--yet I'm now at work :( *sigh*

memphish said...

Our kickass elementary school Xmas party is tomorrow. I'd prefer a snow day. We're having perfect Tenn. winter weather. Sunny, 50 and no wind.

Tonight I get to beat out other parents for prime seating for the elementary school Xmas pageant and wait there for an hour keeping others away until the rest of my party arrives. I actually dreamt about this last night. Needless to say it was a nightmare.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

yer kids' schools can refer to Christmas without being sued? interesting!

or are they "holiday parties?"

kim, i give you permission to take a snow day. stay inside with your lost season 3 dvds and a mug of hot cocoa. just call into work with "The Sickness" next time it snows.

stephsmith said...

Officially 4th graders can't have parties. We have really elaborate snacks; pigs in a blanket, rotel dip, sausage balls, brownies, cupcakes, cookies. Yay, small room full of sugared-up 9 year-olds!

memphish said...

We go to private school, so we can have a Christmas party a Christmas pageant and can say Merry Christmas.

Cute kitty photo.

jordan and the ps3 gang, new firmware. gives me access to almost all my videos on my PC. good ol' divx. w00t.

memphish said...

There's a new minute-long Season 4 trailer here. I caught part of a shorter one on Monday Night Football last night as well.

Holli

stephsmith said...

Ok, I'm rehooked on Lost. If season one was about the survivors, season two was about the Hatch, three was about the Others, what is season four going to cover? Getting off the island? If Locke blowing up the sub meant the island didn't want Jack to leave, what happened to change the island's mind about Jack leaving?

PalmerEldritch said...

methinks Jack defies the Island by leaving. and then he becomes a broken man afterwards. should've listened to the Island.

Ralph- said...

"anonymous said...
Holy crap this is cool!"

nice-

Kimberley, the interview went as well as it could have. He speaks so fluidly and has a lot on his mind, that i didnt feel worthy of talking to him, which added to my nervous talking, which usually involves me not being able to form words that my mind is thinking. BUT, he seemed to enjoy himself. it went on for about an hour and 15 min. i will let you all know when the interview is up on geekscape.

SMKGrl said...

so awesome!!!

Congrats to you two for getting this commentary scoop!

My mind was whirling with the legal logistics of it all. Did Jorge have to get "permission" to do this? Also, did he have any insights on the strike? I assume since he was in Cali that they're done filming.

Really really really...congrats! Who of us wouldn't just love to chill out with JG, you guys and watch TTID!?! You lucks.

andrew. said...

-Ralph, what do you think of the new Madman series? This last issue seemed to put it back on the path of a more traditional (but still trippy) superhero book, but those first few issues were pretty abstract. I'm looking forward to your interview.

-my Season 3 set just showed up! Jacob loves me!

Producer Ryan said...

Yes, smkgrl, chilling out with Jay Glatfelter was pretty cool. Jorge was awesome as well.

PalmerEldritch said...

anyone ever played Knights of the Old Republic 1 or 2? it's random, but i've got a physical need to replay those games.

i've been going crazy all morning reading about those games at Wookieepedia.

sunloc said...

PalmerEldritch yeah me too i just played them a few weeks you should try out mass effect its from the same people, Love the show guys i cant wait to hear more commentaries in the future.

t-dot kim said...

I believe the submarine is a complete hoax. We've never seen it in operation. My theory was that ppl were knocked out, brought to the island another way, then placed into the submarine before they wake up.

As for season 4, I have no clue what it could be about. I'm staying away from all spoilers, and previews (as much as I can). I'm on disc 5 of season 3, and I can't believe how much of the story I've forgotten since the finale in May. Considering we still have SOOOOO much time until Season 4 starts, I may just watch the series again from the beginning.

Ralph, I'm happy to hear your interview went so well!

PalmerEldritch said...

sunloc? one of the featured Dharmalars T-Shirt models, right? i think i'll dig up my copies of KOTOR 1 + 2.

kim, what kind of cool shit are you noticing the second time around?

t-dot kim said...

P, I'm not really noticing anything new and exciting...there are some scenes where I'm like "Oh, ya...I forgot that happened."

Ralph- said...

smkgrl, the legal issue is not an issue. We kept the audio down on the episode, as to avoid copywrite laws. i added the disclaimer by stevi at the beginning to cover our ass a bit more. Essentially we are doing the same thing that Rifftrax does. Jorge didnt have to do anything except for show up to record his thoughts. if you listen, you will notice that there arent a lot of opinion coming from Jorge. He pretty much tells us facts and stories about the days he shot the episode. it was nothing but pure fun.

Andrew, i love the new series. I really love the characters, as well as the Saturday Morning Serial mentality in the storytelling. i think that the art in the new series is the best thing that the allreds have done ever. i get excited everytime a new issue it released!

PalmerEldritch said...

i'm waiting for the extended cut of the commentary where jorge discusses politics, religion, and the best way to kill a drifter.

lostpedia have some sort of timeline for that psychic guy who talks to Claire and Eko?

PalmerEldritch said...

rather than when he enrolled in college, i'm interested in when his kid dies and gets better, when he talks to claire the first time, the second time, and when he talks to Mr. Eko.

memphish said...

Claire - pregnant.

Couple of days later - visits Malkin who freaks on her.

3-4 months later Thomas walks. Claire back to Malkin who starts "you must raise the baby" stuff.

Probably about this time daughter dies. Eko starts investigating.

Claire tries to adopt out baby; pens fail. Claire returns to Malkin he gives her ticket for flight tomorrow.

Eko visits Malkin possibly same day, maybe day before. Case closed. Day of flight Eko meets daughter in airport (and Libby.)

Hope that helps Palmer.

It's my theory that Malkin discovered Claire was Christian Shephard's daughter and that Christian was paying Malkin to keep tabs on her and get her to LA to get the baby (and Claire) into his life.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

huh. your theory makes some sense.

but how can i shoehorn DHARMA into it?

PalmerEldritch said...

holy monkey shit. just (finally) watched that trailer you linked to Holli. that is BAD ASS.

very psyched for jan 31st.

also, got into Hulu and watched the first part of the first episode of Bruce Campbell vehicle "Jack of All Trades" earlier today. :)

trevor mcfur said...

Holy shit that trailer is awesome!!!

PalmerEldritch said...

*ah-hem*

"just (finally) watched that trailer you linked to, Holli. that is BAD ASS."

there we go. i dont know why forgetting the comma bothered me but the rest of my complete lack of capitalization and grammar didn't.

Jimmy said...

Man....

I really am the last to know anything!

memphish said...

Palmer, you can shoehorn DHARMA into the Malkin timeline by substituting DHARMA for Christian Shephard. There's also lots of Christian Shephard is Dharma theories out in the interwebs, so you could use that too.

Mr Chris, I was hoping for some AD movie news.

FutureAlly said...

Mike- the numbers are haunting us, even in everyday things.

Thank you, Mr. Chris, the interviews are lovely.

PalmerEldritch said...

good news. bad news.

good news: Monk and Psych on NBC this March

bad news: The 4400 not renewed

memphish said...

Sounds like Bad News, Bad News since it sounds like NBC plans to hold out in the writers' strike past March.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

but it's good news if you've already figured that the writer's strike is lasting til fall.

FutureAlly said...

That sucks about The 4400, especially since I just started watching it.

memphish said...

So will it make sense for The 4400 to end now or is there some giant unanswered question hanging out there?

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

the ending of season four works. it ends with a "this happens" that would be a really great stepping off point for season five. but it's not a horrible cliffhanger or anything.

of course, there's still a LOT of unanswered questions. lots and lots.

PalmerEldritch said...

don't pimp your wang if you're not willing to have your doctor sedate you and take a picture of your junk with his cell phone

'Mayo Clinic Hospital administrators said Dr. Adam Hansen, chief resident of general surgery, admitted taking the photo with his cell phone on Dec. 11. The tattoo on strip club owner Sean Dubowik's penis reads: "Hot Rod."'

stephsmith said...

If no one told, Hot Rod would have been none the wiser. I'm always amazed at how quick the word spreads around the hospital when a hermaphrodite is admitted.

trevor mcfur said...

That reminds me of some stories that you can find on this site. (pics included!)

Sucks about the 4400. There's still a ton of questions to be answered, and I thought that it ended on a pretty good cliffhanger in terms of where they were gonna go. I always figured that Tom Baldwin was gonna be the savior of the human race, once he took the shot (which we know is inevitable). But the show's not so exciting that I'm all torn up about it ... I'm disappointed, but it's not like I want to send syringes of promycin to USA or anything.

PalmerEldritch said...

"I'm disappointed, but it's not like I want to send syringes of promycin to USA or anything."

that's frickin' awesome.

Hey Palmer, You download the new 2.10 firmware update? Adds divx and wmv support plus bluray 1.1 or whatever that is. Sweet! I can now stream all my magic box videos!!!

stephsmith said...

Song for the troops by Harold Perrineau, video by Daniel Dae Kim. People say stuff like, "Regardless of how you feel about the war, I hope you support the troops." Are there actually people out there who would be resentful of men and women in uniform because of Iraq? I can't imagine.

PalmerEldritch said...

steph, there probably are. not to get too bitchy about whiny bitches but there probably are. i'm fairly certain they are an itty bitty minority. probably smaller than the "make a giant glass parking lot" contingent.

jordan, supposedly, Windows Media Player 11 can't share out XVid videos properly so your PS3 won't be able to watch them. unless you just press Triangle and copy them to your PS3. then they'll play just fine. just like your DivX vids. good stuff.

now, you're magic box can display to your HDTV. w00t!

also, BluRay 1.1 is gunna be sweet. it'll allow Picture in Picture video commentaries like HDDVD has. now, just to wait for 1.1 Blu-Rays to be manufactured.

PalmerEldritch said...

Triple A in GI Joe?

Jordan from the 206 said...

Heroes: Vol 3 sneak peek

Pretty short. Mild spoilers, I guess. But check out the final shot.

Palmer, I dunno if what I've been playing are actually xvid. But I've been streaming some of my magic box material which are avi files with the word "xvid" in the file name, and they've been working just fine. I'll have to try out some more vids to see for sure. But even if it's not the case, seems as if there's a work around to it. Finally, all the crap I've been saving and not wanting to watch on my computer is finally free! Bwahahaha. In your face writers strike!

PalmerEldritch said...

anyone make out any of the audio on that Heroes video?

memphish said...

You should all envy me. I "get" to go see Alvin and the Chipmunks today.

PalmerEldritch said...

/sorry

FutureAlly said...

you're the luckiest gal in the world, holli!

let us know how it goes. i'm sure not as well as if you were watching something else.

is everyone done with their christmas (holiday) shopping?

PalmerEldritch said...

ally, my girlfriend imposed a spending list. all my presents for her came in. then she revealed that she went over the limit. so, i ordered a couple more things for her. awaiting them coming in. other than that, everything is under the tree.

trevor mcfur said...

I read a review somewhere that the Chipmunk movie is akin to watching a doctor perform an abortion. Have fun there.

AAA in GI Joe? Is he gonna play this guy?

PalmerEldritch said...

trevor, clearly he'll be playing this kind fellow.

i hope this guy is in the movie too.

FutureAlly said...

I've really been slacking this year. Usually by the first week in December I have about 80% of the shopping done. This year, I've only bought one present, that's right, ONE! I need to go shopping this weekend, I'm dreading going out there and fighting with those other last minute shoppers, but it has to be done. The only reason I have the one present, is because I bought it online a while back.

Fortunately, I'm taking tomorrow off work, so maybe I can go shop then.

MB said...

(sigh)
I know I'm a bit of a sap - but that music video from Harold and Daniel got me choked up. Thanks for posting the link Steph.

Good day friends!

trevor mcfur said...

What about Gung Ho?

I'd like to know, because knowing is half the battle.

Jordan from the 206 said...

I have a confession to make.

I bought a ticket last weekend to Alvin & the Chipmunks.

But it was only so I could get into a sold out showing of Juno. I then followed it up by sneaking into No Country for Old Men, so any guilt I have about giving $ to evil family targeted garbage films is soothed by watching 2 good films. Although the super witty, too cool for school dialog in Juno at the beginning is a bit tough to swallow. 16 year old girls do not talk like 35 year old Jenine Garafalo's. But still, the 2nd half of the movie was much better and very charming, I must admit. And No Country, that air gun was so bad ass! I loved the nearly complete lack of soundtrack and score. Really set the tone/mood.

elias said...

cheers for the link Steph.

Lost DVDs finally arrived so I'm considering taking a day off work tomorrow.

Finished all my Christmas shopping so I've resumed buying stuff for me.

FutureAlly said...

Jordan you're like those kids that buy tickets for kiddie movies and then sneak into R rated movies.

Glad that you liked Juno, I'm really looking forward to seeing it.

andrew. said...

- AAA is playing 'body massage' er, i mean, Roadblock.

- LOST rewatch in full effect. i fell asleep 1/2 way through the 'I Do' commentary.
some observations:
>i still like all of the stuff with the Others.
>I even liked Elizabeth Mitchell's acting in the 1st 3 or 4 episodes before she turned the 'arch' up a little too high.
>'Further Instructions' is still terrible. The fact that the Boone dream didn't mean anything except 'go save Ecko from a polar bear' just made it that much worse. Remember how much people were trying to read into every aspect of that dream sequence?
>knowing AAA was desperate to get out of LOST, it was fairly obvious in the rewatch of 'Cost Of Living.'

Jordan from the 206 said...

Ally, I liked Juno. But I was expecting to really like it. It's a neat little movie. But as I said before, much of the dialog really bothered me. Juno the character, every single thing she says in the film is the wittiest, driest, most dead pan one-liner. That on it's own can be annoying. But have a 16 year old high schooler talk like that and it takes away from the realism of the movie. I mean, not only is this 16 year old girl apparently the most observant, cynical, witty commentator of our time. She also is overly versed in way too much before her time pop culture like 70's punk rock and classic horror films. I don't like movies that seem like they are trying to sound hip and irreverent. About 1/3 of the way into the movie I caught myself thinking, "Am I hating this movie? I told myself that I was supposed to love it. But I'm no so sure." In the 2nd half of the movie though, when the story takes over and it's not just a showy character exhibtion, finally for me the film loses that annoying "look how smart the writing is" element. And there are some truly endearing heartfelt moments between a few of the characters. Overall a decent thumbs up.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Anyone else see Juno? Am I just being fussy? Also, what about No Country for Old Men? Did you like the ending? lol. I also just saw Into the Wild. Pretty good flick. Even though I loathe Sean Penn as an actor. He did a pretty good job directing.

PalmerEldritch said...

This old dude blue himself.

FutureAlly said...

It looks like the movie hasn't even opened here yet. The soonest I can see it is tomorrow, but most theaters won't have it available until the 25th.

Anybody checking out Sweeney Todd? I think I might have to debate b/w that one and Juno this weekend. I have a feeling I'll end up going to the movies instead of doing some holiday shopping tomorrow.

FutureAlly said...

Why is it that they're calling him blue? He looks gray to me. Maybe it's because I expect to see him like this.

andrew. said...

- 42 days until LOST! Ka-blamo!

trevor mcfur said...

Holy cow, it's Papa Smurf.

I liked this quote:

REPORTER (To Paul): After it turned your skin blue, you're drinking it.

PAUL: Yes, but much less.

memphish said...

I have returned from the Chipmunks and I'm very jealous of Jordan and his movie viewing, not that Juno is in the theater here yet either Ally. I've never watched an abortion (and no don't link to a video), but this was up there with a root canal without the drugs. There was some LOL potty humor moments, but damn, the parts in between were just freakin' dreadful. Even the non-blue Tobias Funke was dreadful. I couldn't stop looking at how crooked David Cross's lower teeth are.

Hopefully my 3 seasons of Arrested Development will arrive today, and I can try to erase the 'Munk madness from my head with some AD.

Holli

memphish said...

Jordan you aren't alone on the Juno thing. Critic David Edelstein agrees with you. I still want to see it though.

And Andrew I totally agree about "Further Instructions." I haven't rewatched "Strangers in a Strange Land" yet, and I like Ralph's point that it was necessary to fool me in the finale (no I didn't know it was a flash forward), but FI is almost certainly on my top 5 worst LOST episodes and could easily be #1.

PalmerEldritch said...

does Earl and The Chipmunks have any sort of plot?

memphish said...

No, it does not. Instead it sort of has 3 all of which are recycled and lame and thankfully under-developed. The only thing that could have made it worse was to make it longer.

Animals with jobs.

PalmerEldritch said...

kablamo!

Jordan from the 206 said...

One thing I forgot to say about Juno. Ellen Page, who plays Juno (and who was Kitty Pride in X-Men 3), depsite her over the top dialogue is actually very, very good. She deserves a lot of the praise she is receiving and will definitely be heard from again soon. And Michael Cera (George Michael from AD) was actually surprisingly good. I really like him, but I fear he is a bit of a one trick pony with his awkward, stammering teenager routine (although he is very good at it). But in this movie (which he isn't in a whole ton), he really helps combat the annoying in your face too cool for school vibe, as he is the most subtle, down to earth character of the lot.

After Holli referencing that one critic who had the same complaints, I went to rotten tomatoes and read some more reviews. I'm glad to see that more than a few people got the exact same vibe I did. Still, most always end up liking it. But here is a quote from a less than glowing review, that I found quite on the money:

"In one embarrassing scene, the husband and Juno spend an eternity name-checking classic punk bands and rare grunge-era alt-rock compilation CDs, a discussion which flows into a monologue comparing Dario Argento and Herschell Gordon Lewis. Not once does the scene feel legitimate, or even necessary, yet it’s here, simply because screenwriter Diablo Cody wanted to scream at us to let us know all the things she knows about in the hopes we think that makes her cool."

Word.

I'll stop talking about this movie now as it doesn't seem as if anybody else has itin their city yet, let alone seen.

FutureAlly said...

A few quotes from Holli describing Earl & the Chipmunks:

"...the parts in between were just freakin' dreadful."

"The only thing that could have made it worse was to make it longer."

/TWSS

FutureAlly said...

I think it's ok to talk about it, Jordan. Since we're all probably gonna see it. It's cool to hear what people think about it. I'm sure we'll all have more to talk about after the weekend has passed and we've all seen it.

trevor mcfur said...

Ally, I'm going to see Sweeny Todd next week; it's the newly-revived annual 'Trevor McFur and the in-laws post-holiday movie trip'. Three years ago, we saw, 'Meet the Fockers'. Two years ago, the mother-in-law wanted to see 'The Family Stone', which I refused to see on general principle. Mom-in-law, having never been defied on her movie pick, canceled the trip then and last year, and didn't speak to me for a week. So hopefully Sweeny (Sweeney?) Todd is a good one, because there's a lot of family harmony hinging on it.

trevor mcfur said...

And btw, I really want to see it. I'm a Burton fan, and imo, Burton + Depp = movie magic.

Jordan from the 206 said...

I'm looking very much forward to Sweeney Todd. Everything so far sounds really good.

stephsmith said...

Jordan ,we can't all live in Seattle. Guess what! The Darjeeling Limited is now playing in B'ham. Of course it is, now that I have my heart set on seeing Atonement and Juno. By the time those two are here, I'll be over them as well.
I saw Waitress. It started out a little dodgy but I ended up loving it.

memphish said...

I saw Waitress this week too Steph. It was okay, but not my favorite.

Holli

FutureAlly said...

I couldn't help but laugh in your explanation of the McFur family tradition. mo-in-law canceling because her movie was not an option sounds like something Lucille Bluth would do.

Jordan from the 206 said...

One last thing about Juno. Rainn Wilson (Dwight from The Office) makes a brief cameo at the very beginning of the film. He has some of the most cringe-worthy lines imagineable. Ugh.

PalmerEldritch said...

jordan, the PS3's new music visualization is fantasti-purty. the new "earth from space" visualization. check that out.

'sup, gang?

Jordan from the 206 said...

New visualizations? Sweet! The old ones were kinda lame. I also read that there's a new voice masking feature. Think of all the evil that can be down with that? lol.

Remember how I said that the xvid's that I've tried so far have all worked? I was reading earlier today that apparently newer xvid codecs do in fact work. And there is the copy to hard drive end-around that you were talking about.

Hey Home Skillet, if you liked Ellen Page, you should see .
I am finished with Christmas shopping and it's a good thing too. I'll be working the entire weekend. Yay!

andrew. said...

-i've been meaning to queue 'Hard Candy.' The premise makes me feel a little pervy though.

-i'm seeing 'I Am Legend' this weekend. It was my brother's choice & i couldn't think of anything better to suggest. I like Will Smith. He's charismatic as hell, but i have this suspicion that studios cast him when the script isn't strong enough and they need that Fresh Prince charm to carry the film. Plus i think that script was knocking around production for 15+ years. Still, my low expectations might pay off like they did for '30 Days Of Night.'

- Rough night of football. The Steelers won but, in the process, lost our all-star running back. curse of the Thursday night football.

- Lost season 3 rewatch continues. Finished 'I Do' and 'Not In Portland'
> 'I Do' was great. The commentary was pretty good too.
> the surgery scenes are awesome, a great cliffhanger. Ben waking up on the table was a great surprise the 1st time through, but now it seems like a little too much.
> Sawyer vs. Pickett was great. I remember totally buying that they might shoot Sawyer and the scene still plays with a lot tension & emotion.
>Juliet's husband getting hit by the bus seems a lot less supernatural this time. He was standing in the street for a while, giving the established bus time to pick up speed and nail him.
>i love Tom, odd-bod and all. He has a great moment where he awkwardly introduces himself to Jack at a completely inappropriate moment & knowing Kate's not his type makes it even better.

Mr. Chris said...

"In one embarrassing scene, the husband and Juno spend an eternity name-checking classic punk bands... etc"

I got this same feeling several times reading The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger - some parts are just chock full of LISTS of bands.

Andrew, this is for you about Jack and Tom. This is from one of those LOST magazine articles where they interview M.C. Gainey who played Tom.

Read the answer to the second question.

yeesh... didn't claire just have a baby a month ago?

i like Desmond's greaser sleeves. fashionlicious. in the 40s anyhow.

memphish said...

Claire's been taking those afternoon walks and breastfeeding -- the Tori Spelling lose your baby weight plan.

PalmerEldritch said...

ok, the next person who mentions Tori Spelling and breastfeeding gets a week in the bear cage. :p

stephanie said...

Claire= bad wig
Why didn't they do those picutes in front of actual greenery instead of photoshopping?
What was the deal with Isabel, the sheriff? Why was Kate not Tom's type? Is it because she's not special and he is?
I can't read the small type of the MC Gainey. Someone give me the jist.
Andrew, I think you are completely right about I Am Legend. I feel like 28 Weeks Later is probably going to be the better post-apocalytic thriller.

PalmerEldritch said...

Tom doesn't want to bang Kate cuz he's too busy scoping out the sexy coconut skull of one Jack Q. Shephard.

memphish said...

Claire = Bad Wig because bad wigs are a LOST hallmark.

MC Gainey says that once he told Kate she wasn't his type and saw the internet speculation that Tom was gay that he decided to play it that way and flirt with Sawyer and Jack. That just cracks me up.

I just watched "Not in Portland." That episode is awesome.

ralph-, what is that sitting in the floor in front of Jorge? I try to figure it out each time I see the picture.

sunloc said...

saw i am legend last night it was sick, i read the book before its diff you should read the book before seeing it. yes PalmerEldritch that old pic i have to take a new one i heard there making a KOTOR third.

trevor mcfur said...

Steph, do you mean next to the bookbag? It kind of looks like an iMac.

stephsmith said...

Oh, it's a backpack.

- i extended the rewatch last night due to some Holiday related laundry (mom doesn't like the pants with the holes in them). Watched 'Flashes Before Your Eyes,' 'Stranger In A Strange Land' & 'Tricia Tanaka Is Dead' (with Dharmalars commentary).

-The Dharmalars commentary was awesome! You guys did a great job of getting Jorge to talk about the filming process without being fawning fanboys at all. It was a really interesting mix of perspectives, and of course funny as hell. It really wouldn't surprise me if you got invited to officially cohost a commentary on the season 4 set.

-Those season 4 promo shots are pretty bad. I'm sure there is already tons of fan speculation about why Sun is chilling in front of a different backdrop. Is that Spaghetti or Arzt on Hurley's shirt?

-Holli - thanks for the Tom article. I'll miss Mr. Gainey and his spectacular football celebrations.

-Stephanie - i think that's just a backpack (from the future) (will we even have backs in the future?)

-Sunloc - careful, you're getting my hopes up!

-'Stranger In A Strange Land' wasn't anywhere near as bad as 'Further Instructions.' It was annoying because it was completely filler, but it wasn't as wrongheaded. i didn't even mind Bai Ling & her rib cage as much. The Sheriff is still funny though because she's completely out of sync with the show. It seems fairly apparent that she was supposed to be a new big character, maybe a replacement for Pickett, but they cast the wrongenest wrong actress and dropped her.

here the date for Lost: The Videogame February 26, 2008 im getting for my 360

PalmerEldritch said...

is there any more info on the contents of the LOST game?

sunloc said...

here are some images on darkufo http://darkufo.blogspot.com/2007/12/new-images-from-lost-video-game.html

PalmerEldritch said...

thanks for the link.

hey, think the Freighties caught that "seabird" that Claire sent out?

sunloc said...

i know whos in the coffin its john locke i think is because remember the news article it a name on it John Latham ok we fond out john's mom name was Emily Locke and she game john up and that he was adopted. do kids keep there parents last name if there adopted? and he called have use he's other parents last name. Tell what you think?

memphish said...

Locke was never adopted; he just had foster families. Still it's a good a theory as most.

And no I do not think the Boat People found the bird. Watch the trailer; listen to the guy with the eyes, and you'll know why I'm saying that.

It could turn out to be a Missing Moment, Alex with her slingshot nailing the bird with the note.

Merry Christmas, blogspotters.

PalmerEldritch said...

sunloc, i'm of the theory that it's Michael in the coffin.

or maybe Jack was just so high that he picked some rando's funeral. kept sending the clipping to Kate and when she finally agreed to meet with Jack, she got to ask "why would i go to his funeral?"

that's my new [crackpot] theory. jack was so hopped up on goofballs that he attended a funeral that he randomly picked out of the obituaries.

steph, merry christmas to you! and that goes for all you crazy blogspotters.

especially you.

no, not you, the other one. yeah, you.

memphish said...

Yeah, I know you're talking to me.

I like that crackpot theory. You should submit it to J&J.

Merry Christmas Blogspot!

Brennan said...

As for who I think is in the coffin, I think it may be someone we haven't really met yet. I'm leaning toward one of the boat/freighter people. I really have nothing to back it up, it's just a feeling I have.

/TWSS?

stephsmith said...

Is it physically possible to gain 20lbs in 24 hours? I'm pretty sure I have. Come December 26th my treadmill and I will become reaquainted.
I still think Lindeluce don't know who exactly is in the coffin. I think they have their ideas. I think they're leaving their options open. I might be wrong. I probably am.

Anonymous said...

it's going to be mikail in the coffin.

PalmerEldritch said...

mikhail is kind of like our one-man Zombie Season.

i think Anon's idea of Mikhail in the coffin would be great cuz once Jack leaves, he'd just open the casket and ask the funeral director "so, did anyone good show up for my funeral? how about kate?"
