So sweet!!

2nd!

Kim - I just sent you my seg (doh - missed the deadline)

MB said...

BTW - saw Juno yesterday. Loved it. I will say I don't know any high school students that are that witty - but the writing was so good it didn't matter. Michael Cera and Ellen Page were pitch perfect together, and I loved J.K. Simmons and Alison Janney as her parents. Great preformances - Great movie.

MB said...

Kim -
you should now have 2 emails from me. IGNORE my request to post the seg separately - just listened to the show (SWEET btw!) and it of course makes sense to wrap my seg into next week. I'm a little slow with the chronic sleep deprivation right now :)

nitey nite everyone.


oh - Kablammo!

Chris JC said...

I was gonna ask if it was time for The Losties again, being January,

Seems that it is.

But I will never know what the secret iTunes bonus was for those who were in the right place at the right time.

Chris JC said...

There is a purpose to this message - but it's only of benefit to me. Move along!

stephsmith said...

Losties!

PalmerEldritch said...

mmm... podcast!

Chris JC said...

Nice intro by Elias - bringing you the sounds of Wandsworth.

FutureAlly said...

What a way to start the week! Yay!!! Thanks, girls!

Awesome job on the intro, Elias. Hope to hear more from you.

Trevor McFur said...

Thanks to profootballtalk.com for this one...

Tears of a Clown.

elias said...

Sweet! Listening now.

1 from 4 on my NFL predictions. My mate asked me to keep going and he'll bet on the other teams ;)

Chris JC said...

The truth behind Blu-Ray

Those of us who have suspected that the machine is less a games console, and more a trojan horse method to gain a larger userbase for Blu-Ray rather than HD-DVD are unlikely to be dissuaded by this development.

MB said...

Totally spaced on saying

THANKS ELIAS

ThElias!

Very cool intro

stephsmith said...

Awesome hearing Elias and Jordan. I can't believe we have to wait for part 2.
My Most Shocking Moment: Sun was banging Jae Lee.

t-dot kim said...

Kablamo!

Thanks Elias, and Jordan for helping out with Pt 1. I'm really excited for all of you to hear the rest of what we recorded. Again Aimee and I had a marathon recording session, and it was only fair to cut it up into 3 parts.

Ally, check your e-mail!

aimee in little rock said...

I think we finished recording at like, 1:30 my time?

MB said...

How did I know that Bai Ling's nipples would somehow make it into the discussion. It seems to fascinate us - lol

Wesh said...

w00t!!! tee el aye!
Will pumpt this treat into my ipoT and listen to it tonightish. Can't wait to hear how Bai Ling's ting-a-lings come into play in this whole lost mythology.

FutureAlly said...

i'll check it now. mostly cause i'm intrigued as to what it could be :)

PastPablo said...

Just wanted to say that the first installment of the Losties kicked ass. I wasn't around the blogspot this time last year so this was first time. blushes.

PastPablo said...

this was MY* first time. stupid typo.

aimee in little rock said...

Woohoo! I just finished listening to part 1. That was fun!

Since our listener line is deactivated (again), this is an open invitation to all blogspotters to send us audio files telling us what your favorite parts of Season 3 were! Hopefully Kim can squeeze them in, like at the end. I think it would be fun to hear from everyone!

thelostinitiative@gmail.com

Wesh said...

ok it's 5am and just finished listening. Sweet podcast. Can't wait for the next parts. Nice intro from elias and wonderful list Jordan. Had me LOL'ing several times!
Ok gotta sleep now. Good nite folks.

PalmerEldritch said...

welcome back, pablo.

man, oh man. how bout them gladiators last night?

/breaking the silence

memphish said...

Great podcasts guys and gals! I was so disappointed when The Losties were temporarily halted. I can't wait for the next installment.

Holli

FutureAlly said...

The Losties were abruptly halted by the writers' strike. Is this what Lindeluse meant about stopping Lost mid-story??

Palmer- breaking the silence? sounds a little domestic disturbance-ish.

PalmerEldritch said...

i'm not afraid to tackle the tough issues, ally.

"Lesbian Nazi Hookers Abducted by UFOs and Forced Into Weight Loss Programs - -all next week on Town Talk."

FutureAlly said...

That headline alone, is priceless.

MB said...

meant to say b4...

Jordan - f-in hilarious! loved your list. bringin' the manly phlegmy-ness straight outta the 206.

Hope your feeling better man!

PalmerEldritch said...

the end is nigh.

coming soon to your television, the Opra h Winfrey Network... ugh.

PastPablo said...

Thanks palmer, how goes it?

MB said...

pablo - cool and freaky av pic - lol

PalmerEldritch said...

i've been forced to go to my backup cup of coffee to stay awake.

in other news, the American Gladiators are getting tested for 'roids.

uh... steroids. not the other ones.

t-dot kim said...

Another great ep of AG last night. I was surprised the fitness model/soccer mom dominated the game from start to finish. (She even beat all of the guys times on The Eliminator). Hellga is honestly a beast, and Titan is half human, half plastic. I love it.

I still say get rid of the scripted interviews between the events--but I'm amped about the show.

What doesn't Oprah O.W.N.? Geeeez

PalmerEldritch said...

kim, ms. fitness model saved a ton of time by falling off the hand bike. not that i can blame her for it. it was a genius move. those hand bikes usually kill people's time. and her fall into the water into an immediate swim under the FIERY DEATH FIRE was badass.

PalmerEldritch said...

p.s. full episodes of AMERICAN GLADIATORS

...for the US of A or people clever enough to use a proxy.

t-dot kim said...

Palmer, If I were on the show, that would be my strategy. I wouldn't even attempt the hand bike--considering I have zero upper body strength.

I hope they have a special show when they put the Gladiators up against each other. THAT would be cool.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Yeah, the way it's set up, the hand bike is a bit stupid. Unless you are able to speed right through it, you are totally better off falling right away. Same with that barrel roll thing. How cool was it seeing Hellga go flying in assault?! lol. And I'm with Kim. Get rid of the pointless interviews. Or at least cut them in half. Do that and the show will be even more awesome than it already is.

Ladies, nice part one of the losties. That guy you got on there is hilarious!

FutureAlly said...

that guy WAS awesome! he has some wonderful insight when it comes to ladies o' lost.

PastPablo said...

Wow i can't believe they are bringing back/brought back American Gladiators. I used to watch that shit when i was like 8.

stephsmith said...

Anybody else besides me want to cowardly admit to watching American Idol tonight?

PalmerEldritch said...

the girlfriend will be watching American Idol. i wanna watch "The Brothers Solomon." but i'll have to wait.

i may throw in some "Flight of the Conchords" in the other room though.

is Katharine McPhee still dating that old guy? :\

PalmerEldritch said...

or maybe i'll watch some old skool Doctor Who streaming from Netflix... hmm...

Ark in Space?
Key to Time?
Genesis of the Daleks?

PalmerEldritch said...

p.s. is this Bud Selig and Creed Bratton on ESPN's main page?

memphish said...

It would be better if that were Creed Bratton. Donald Fehr looks like he ate Creed Bratton.

No Idol in this household. I'm going to watch Expose!

Holli

stephsmith said...

I've been saying I was going to swear off AI but hubby is really pumped for this. If I get started with the try-outs, I'll be hooked. I seriously hope this crappy show is on it's way out the door.

stephsmith said...

So...
yeah, I'll be watching.

stephsmith said...

Hasta la vista, boredom.


What did Steve Jobs say?

PalmerEldritch said...

steve jobs says you can buy a ridiculously tiny laptop with no ethernet port, no cd rom, no firewire ports, and a super slow mini-hard drive for $1800. or you can pay $3100 for a slightly faster model with a smaller, faster, solid state hard drive.

which basically means if you want to read a CD or DVD, you can pay $100 for an external hard drive. and if you want to use an ethernet cord, you can pay $30 or so for a USB ethernet dongle. and you need his new Time Capsule product to back anything up to another drive if you're using the USB port for your cd rom drive or your ethernet.

which means i'm not sure how you back one up if it can't boot since it doesn't have firewire, not sure how you go about reinstalling the Operating System without the external CD rom drive, how you do a netboot without a USB ethernet dongle, or how you replace a part in the tiny little thing if it breaks.

but it's shiny so plenty of people will buy them.

that said, the LED is badass and the touchpad should be cool.

and it looks like Aimee's and Holli's iPhones will get some neat new features but i wasn't really paying attention.

PalmerEldritch said...

ok, the ladyfriend called me in to watch an AI contestant...

a dude who looks like everyone's favorite never-nude, DOCTOR TOBIAS FUNKE!!!!

stephsmith said...

oh

t-dot kim said...

Jordan, why are you hiding behind your "Anonymous" post--we all know you watch Idol.

Looks like Canada could get the iPhone as soon as next month ;) Yippieeeee

PalmerEldritch said...

kim, you can pick up five or six iphones with the mighty canadian dollar!

steph, there's prolly a HUUUUGE "gee whiz" factor for the Mac Book Air cuz it's so tiny but i work with some poor bastards who'll have to support them.

Trevor McFur said...

Great show Kim and Aimee ... can't wait for the sequel.

Jordan, nice job with the hottie list. I would put Nikki first, and Kate second. Saying that Nikki looked good on the pole is an understatement. I like Sun number 3, Juliet number 4, and Penny number 5. The scene with Juliet's naked back did it for me too, it was enough to push her up to 4 ahead of Penny.

Interestingly, Nikki also makes my list of 'skankiest ho's from Lost' too, although she's only number 2 on that list.

stephsmith said...

Number one goes without saying.

Chris JC said...

I've got a lot of time for the nude backs of ladies.

Probably a good thing after watching so many 1980s horror movies.

Trevor McFur said...

Yeah, we can all guess number 1.

Jordan from the 206 said...

To all the BSG nuts out there. I've just started season 3. How ridiculous is Apollo's fat suit? Hahaha. Good show though.

stephsmith said...

Would you say it's the best show ever? Next to Lost, that is? I've been watching season one with a co-worker, Jordan. It's nice hating Tigh again.

Anonymous said...

The iPhone and all apple products are a HYPE

Chris JC said...

Thanks for that.

Now American Gladiators is back and doing big business, I wonder if we'll resurrect our own version? It was well loved - and a lot of its feel seems to have been incorporated back into AG, notably the "Gladiator READY! Contender READY!" bit.

aimee in little rock said...

I still haven't seen BSG yet! However, since I gave Firefly a chance, I suppose I'll have to do the same here. Plus, fat suits are always entertaining.

aimee in little rock said...

>posted from my "hyped" iPhone<

Chris JC said...

Aimee - if it's any help it took me about six episodes of Firefly to get into it. Certainly I started coming around from the fourth one onwards. The third one is a particular offender, especially since the bad guys are wholesale stolen from John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars.

If you watch one more episode, I say go for "Out of Gas" - which is almost a pilot in itself.

PalmerEldritch said...

that anonymous wasn't me. but i will gladly talk shit about the Mac Book Air. :)

BSG is both maddeningly good and just plain maddening. entertaining as all get out though (besides the love quadrangle).

i tried watching Firefly once but it didn't do anything for me. the cast is pretty awesome though.

what's everyone doing for LOSThursday/LOSThday/Freightersday? big LOST parties?

stephsmith said...

No big party at the Smith house. Only have to change taco night to Thursday.

aimee in little rock said...

I plan to watch it with just Chile Biscuit. I know a party sounds like fun and all, but when it comes to Lost, I need complete silence and no distractions. I know it makes me sound like a Lostzi, but I would get pissed at my ex-husband when he'd call during Lost. And he was in Iraq! I mean, come on, he KNOWS I'm watching Lost. What an ass.

memphish said...

Belated Kablamo for Steph!

Thursdays actually works better for me. I can con the kid into bed before airtime easier than I could on Wednesdays. Then I just have to keep Hubby quiet for the hour and retreat to the computer.

Hubby tried to watch part of Expose with me last night, but he couldn't stop himself from asking questions. He did appreciate Nikki's pole style.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

who's Chile Biscuit's favorite character?

i can identify with needing quiet during LOST. i definitely want to bitchslap people who talk over the dialogue of a show that you need to pay attention to. argh.

holli, get your husband to catch up on all three seasons before the 31st. double dog dare him.

taco night, eh? hmmm... i'm thinking some sort of delicious sandwich. or maybe mac and cheese.

stephsmith said...

JJ is a genius or a complete dork. I never noticed the resemblance to George Costanza before.

elias said...

Can't wait for part 2 of the 2008 Losties.

Greatest Hits:

- Juliet not playing for either side/ whoever she has to service to get off... the island :)

- Jordan's list. Kim's reaction to Claire is so funny but I would still put squinchy-face in 2nd place

PalmerEldritch said...

who are the lovely ladies of Season Three from which we get to choose? someone make a list of the nominees.

Trevor McFur said...

What about the R.O.U.S.'s?

PalmerEldritch said...

womp rats?

Monica Callis said...

I don't do taco night.

aimee in little rock said...

Chile Biscuit's favorite character is Bai Ling, because she's salty.

memphish said...

Palmer, There's no way Hubby would catch up on LOST by 1/31. He just doesn't have it in him, and he's mature enough not to take a dare like that. Yeah, getting old sucks. He's watched enough of it that he can pretty much follow along, but like everyone else around here, I do NOT want to be disturbed in my LOST watching, even (or is it especially?) by him.

Holli

FutureAlly said...

Holli, have you shown him the clip from iTunes? Lost in 8:15. It's pretty mind blowing for even me, who's been watching the show since day 1. But it covers everything from the pilot to now.

FutureAlly said...

i've also never seen BSG, but i'll stick it in my queue and see what all the fuss is about.

PalmerEldritch said...

dogs love bai ling's snausage nipples.

/sorry

memphish said...

Ally, he hasn't seen it, but that's basically the level of knowledge he has about the show. I think he could pick it up at the start of S4 if he wanted to, but he'd rather make fun of my obsession with it like I make with his watching CSI:Miami and now his standing in the middle of the room playing Call of Duty 3 on the Wii which is where I left him when I went to bed last night.

Magnum Gets Lost.

Holli

memphish said...

I vote we institute a ban on references to Bai Ling and her body parts that starts no later than 1/31.

Holli

(Trying to erase image Palmer put in my brain.)

PalmerEldritch said...

alright. since you're magnum PI video was so freakin' awesome, i'll try to be good.

but i love a good snausage reference.

memphish said...

So the aforementioned snausages are the beef flavor snausage in a blanket version I'm guessing.

Holli

t-dot kim said...

seriously??

It's too early in the day for nipples and B*i L*ng talk. (Well, too early my time that is)

PalmerEldritch said...

i used "you're" instead of "your." pathetic.

and i'm not using capitals. or is it capitols? argh...

stephsmith said...

It's snowing here in the Heart of Dixie!!!

Jordan from the 206 said...

I am forever scarred from those Bai Ling nipple photos. Thanks blogspot. ;)

PalmerEldritch said...

speaking of horrible monstrosities, anyone going to see Cloverfield this weekend?

memphish said...

I'm going to try to see it Friday afternoon. I haven't followed all the build-up and have very low expectations, and I figure if I don't see it Friday I'll never get around to it.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

hopefully, we'll go this weekend. we've even got free tickets thanks to christmas.

steph, thanks for posting that JJ Abrams video. he's a pretty dynamic speaker.

American Idol: are these people for real?

Jordan from the 206 said...

Deadline on saving current tv season nears.

memphish said...

Your killing me Jordan. I finally had a chance to watch last week's Earl and 30 Rock tonight which were last episodes for both of them given the strike. I was so sad after laughing hysterically at 30 Rock. Earl was okay. Not his best work except for with the trailer.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

new earl tonight?

memphish said...

Nope. I think they've aired all the new Earls.

Is it just me or is anyone else annoyed by the constant identifying of JJ Abrams with LOST? I know it never would have been made without him, but I'm not sure he's watched an episode since the first season, and I know he has no regular input with it.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

jj abrams was LOST's "name" and the reason that it got made with the crew that it has. but i hear what you're saying. sometimes Cuselof and the writer's get overlooked in the media. but "JJ Abrams" is a name (and a brand) that the average tv viewer will recognize. as opposed to "from the guy who brought you 'Brisco County Jr.'"

/brisco county jr was awesome though

PalmerEldritch said...

new avatar. :)

Trevor McFur said...

I've never watched an episode of Alias or any other JJ Abrams show besides Lost, but I think that his name does convey a sense of a certain type of show (especially among sci-fi fans). Isn't he still the executive producer? I'm sure that he's still making money off of the show.

Here's some more depressing news about the writer's strike.

memphish said...

I appreciate that LOST would never have been made but for JJ Abrams, and yes his name (and robot) are still producing the show. But if you were to go to some event and he was there and you were to ask some question about LOST say "who is Jacob?" I'm pretty sure he wouldn't know the answer unless he's called up Damon to ask the question himself.

I guess I'd rather the media call him the creator of LOST than to say he is "of LOST" because it implies ongoing input which has pretty much been absent ever since someone said MI3 in JJ's direction. It's really a media issue rather than JJ trying to hold himself out as something he's not. I guess I'm bored today and want to nitpick.

Holli

stephsmith said...

Whenever I see anything about Cloverfield, the name JJ Abrams is always in the same sentence. I know he produced it but you'd think he wrote, directed and starred in it. I really feel sorry for the actual director of the film, whatever his name is. He's getting no recognition. I hope my filmspotting shirt comes today.

MB said...

Small forward-looking piece of info on the SPLOG

And, since we're speaking of JJ - apparently he's got a new show a-comin'

FutureAlly said...

stephsmith said...

Tom Cruise Recruiting Will Smith to Scientology

Trevor McFur said...

It doesn't just happen to JJ Abrams ... any producer who kind of has a 'brand' gets his name placed all over any project he's involved with. It's like, I have no idea who directed 'Supebad' or 'Dewey Cox' ... but I sure know that Judd Apatow was involved, somehow. And I don't know who runs 'Reaper', but I hear a lot that Kevin Smith has provided some funding.

PalmerEldritch said...

what were those movies "presented by quentin tarantino" ?

andrew. said...

- Tarantino's Rolling Thunder label brought a lot of great foreign & old b- movies to video rental shelves that otherwise wouldn't have made it. I will always hold Tarantino in high regard for making "Chungking Express" available.

- tried to catch up with the Lost ARG but the puzzle on ABC.com won't load for me. =(

Trevor McFur said...

Fon't forget about the 'American Pie Presents' label...

Jordan from the 206 said...

I was talking about this JJ Abrams thing a bit ago with a friend. It's just like Trevor pointed out with Judd Apatow. Once a director or producer gains name recognition, his name will forever be used to add credibility. Even if he is barely involved with the projuct.

Apatow for instance. I don't think he has had much to do with movies like Walk Hard or Superbad, but his name is plastered all over. Do you even know who directed those? It's pretty much people approaching them to green light their project. Whoever was wanting to make Walk Hard either got funding from Apatow or his "blessing" which gave them a studio go ahead. Kinda stupid, but it works.

As for the Tarantino presents films. I remember that was him making a deal with some studio to put his name on a bunch of foreign films and present them to an American audience. They obviously felt that people would watch them if they had the QT seal of approval. I think some of the films were Iron Monkey and Hero. I also think his name was tacked onto Hostel for his boy Eli Roth.

Jordan from the 206 said...

And yeah. JJ Abrams has had nothing to do with Lost outside of getting it off the ground and the pilot. He pretty much played the role of Judd Apatow for Cuse and Lindelof. I don't know all the facts. But those guys probably had the idea for the show. A show of that magnitude and cost couldn't get the green light from ABC without JJ's name and credibility.

t-dot kim said...

I want this damn strike to end!!! Arrrrgh!

14 days and about 7.5 hours until LOST! 8 weeks of LOST goodness ;)

PalmerEldritch said...

thanks for the running clock, kim. it's reassuring to have the wait time for LOST to be less than 8 months or whatever it started out at.

can't wait to see what Locke's up to next on that wacky Island.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Regardless what you think of American Idol, I don't know how you can't like this guy's song.

PalmerEldritch said...

jordan, don't forget about this Tobias Funke-alike.

Jordan from the 206 said...

And this guy!

Trevor McFur said...

That guy even sounds like Tobias. And while I'm disappointed that he's not all in blue, the leopard-skin vest almost makes up for it.

Too bad he didn't sing a folk song...

PalmerEldritch said...

i wanted him to sing about teamocil.

memphish said...

This is why I hate AI. It's wrong for Paula to get up and dance in front of a guy that's clearly nuts, but foreign and sincere. Simon was the only one who got it, and thankfully kept the venom out of it. Tobias you can make fun of, but not the sad little foreign guy.

I'm done with NFL predictions.

Gonna see No Country tomorrow and maybe the late show of Walk Hard. Lost will be back before we get Juno or Cloverfield.

Wesh said...

Gaah! Doesn't look like Cloverfield will be out here before the 30th. That sucks. Kinda wanted to see it this weekend.
If the movie is awesome the whole internet is gonna be buzzing again, and then i'm gonna have to watch it via some crappy cam release...
Or I could wait. I'll try that.

Chris JC said...

Everyone be nice to Wesh, Elias and myself with the Cloverfield spoilers. I am determined not to watch it on the Mystery Channel.

PalmerEldritch said...

aimee, those are some awesome pics. is that actually Chile Biscuit or just her costume idea for next year?

one of my cats made Stuffonmycat.com once.

Wesh said...

hahaha! Watching the show "Extras" right now :D Quite funny actually. Chuck-full of those good ol' awkward moments and hilarious real life tid bits we know from "The Office". (but different)
(yeh, I know it's an old show, but I'm catching up on my shows :) finishing up Arrested Development season 2 too. TOO TOO!)
ok.

Wesh said...

Aimee, those are the awesomest pictures I've seen this year by the way :)
can i say hawt dan?
Well i can type it, but I wouldn't know how to pronounce it.
bottomline: hot.

Wesh said...

awwwww, what a poor lil kitty kat, palmer!
(sorry for triple post, wont happen again. if it did it'd be a quadruple or more.)

stephsmith said...

The reason I can't keep my eyes off American Idol: the producers can talk folks into sharing their most intimate secrets.

Jordan from the 206 said...

People will do and/or say anything to stand out to get on tv.

Wesh, Extras is indeed great. Speaking of which, how the heck was I not aware until just now that there was a series finale Christmas special? I need to see that asap!

Question for the Brits. Are series finale Chirstmas Specials common with UK shows? Or is it just a Ricky Gervais thing?

Wesh said...

hehe, I'm one episode away of that christmas show, can't wait :)

yeah stephsmith, that's really crazy. And that dude was grose!
I mean ok he had a potentially good voice, but collecting that stuff...
Watched the first ep of American Idol, and gotta say, that dude that lost like 200pounds, looks like he might get pretty far in this game (with a little training ofcourse). It has a nice story to it too.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Holli & Palmer talking about the Pats earlier reminded me of this.

Jordan from the 206 said...

DGA (Not WGA) reaches agreement

More not fun strike related news included.

But other series may be even closer to calling it quits. Crew members who work on to two mainstream, fan-favorite TV shows tell me they were informed this week that it is "extremely unlikely" they will be producing any more episodes this season whether the strike ended soon or not. According to one below-the-line crew member: "We were told that even if the strike ends soon, we won't be doing any more episodes until next season, because it just won’t work." (These sources requested that their shows not be named.)

Could one of those shows be Lost?

memphish said...

Touchdown Jordan! That is hilarious. Makes up for the crap happening in find815 today.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

dont worry. even New England fans make fun of Brady's buttchin and the Stetson ads.

but he probably doesnt care since he has three superbowl rings and goes home and bangs supermodels on his massive piles of money.

Chris JC said...

Christmas specials are fairly common over here - especially for programmes that don't normally cover the festive period, like most major US shows do.

They are more commonly reserved for comedy (not generally Gervais style comedy drama). The classics are sketch and variety shows from Morecambe and Wise and The Two Ronnies, and they are still employed for things like (I'll stop linking now) Little Britain, The Catherine Tate Show and Dead Ringers.

The Extras Christmas special (only in timing, it wasn't festive) this year was pretty good. I'm not a huge fan of the series, but it was at its most successful when it's no trying to be funny (a sketch with an awkward interview is utterly obvious and almost embarrassing to watch). Treat it as a drama, I say.

Chris JC said...

And having re-read your ACTUAL question, it's not all that common to use them as a final episode, but it seems to be Gervais's way of bowing out of a series on a high as well as being more likely to net a big audience.

(Also you can sell it as a totally separate DVD).

Steph- I would go to Cloverfield, it's more of a "big screen" kinda movie, 27 Dresses is more of a sit at home in your jammies kinda movie.

PalmerEldritch said...

so, i'll make it my mission to go see Cloverfield this weekend.

i'll probably fail miserably but, hey, i'll try.

Trevor McFur said...

I'm a little concerned that the jittery camera for Cloverfield will make me sick, so I'll probably wait for the DVD.

From fark.com, here's weird shit you can buy on Amazon.

FutureAlly said...

there's 2 people talking about football, here in the office. apparently they're both fans of not only the patriots, but the cowboys too.

what is wrong with these people? i mean, to each his own, but jeez!

10 minutes until Cloverfield starts!

PalmerEldritch said...

argh!!! no fair, holli.

and don't forget to turn off your cell phone during the movie!!!

memphish said...

Ringer's off. At least 75% of the audience here is male. Probably the reverse of the 27 Dresses crowd.

FutureAlly said...

that's quite an amazon list. i don't usually go on there looking for anything more than movies and stuff so, i didn't know how weird things could get on there.

Mike Campbell said...

you really get used to the camera in Cloverfield. I thought it would distract from it but i was fine it with. A few times i wanted to yell 'hold the flippin camera still' but it really works in the film.

- just 1 lame-ass non-Lost Thursday left!
- i keep getting mixed messages about the Lost video game. There are a bunch of reports saying that it is the usual licensed property pasted over top of a lame pre-existing game engine, but then the discriptions of how they integrated the flashbacks & existing show history sound really cool.
That article makes it pretty clear that we won't learn anything about the bigger Lost mythology, but i think i'll still have fun doing my laundry, listening to Geronimo Jackson records in the Swan hatch.

FutureAlly said...

He has a name.


cute baby animal picture included

MB said...

Thanks for the Cloverfield plug Mike! I SO wish I could go see it this weekend - gonna have to wait a week and avoid spoilers.

So, it sounds like Holli is watching it right NOW...

aimee in little rock said...

1. That wasn't actually Chile Biscuit, but still an awesome picture that kind of looks like her. She's way cuter.

2. Determined to see Cloverfield this weekend!

3. Go Packers! Giants suck.

4. I'm totally making those fish biscuits a part of my normal diet.

5. Chile Biscuit is having surgery next Friday, so please pray for her that it goes okay. I know it's just a spaying, but I'm super scared anyway.

6. I like Lost.

PalmerEldritch said...

1. She'll need that costume for next Halloween then. You can go as Wonder Woman and Wonder Girl. heck, you could dress up like that for St Patrick's Day if you can't wait for Halloween.

3. amen.

4. eat enough fish biscuits and you're rewarded with hot cage lovin' with Sawyer. remind me not to eat too many fish biscuits...

5. good luck, chile biscuit. my cats were super out of it for a while after their neuterings and looked so sad but bob barker was so proud of me. chile should be fine. just don't let her jump off of couches or down stairs or anything for a bit.

6. i think i've heard of it. that's the mud wrestlin' show set in the jungle, right?

Trevor McFur said...

Ally, those 2 guys sound like classic front-runners. That's a sign of poor character, and these losers should be avoided at all costs.

Has anyone else seen David Lynch's iPhone commercial?

PalmerEldritch said...

trevor, that is fantastic.

i also like the new MacBook Air commercial.

Chris JC said...

Aimee - I've read a number of your posts and for some reason you really strike me as a LOST fan.

I can't put my finger on why,

MB said...

1. Just dress up like that tomorrow for work and roundhouse kick officer shortstack's ass - you WOULD be a superhero in most people's eyes

2. need the non-spoiler review of Cloverfield from as many people as possible - at least I can get pumped for seeing it next week.

3. Go Packers indeed

4. That is such a common procedure - Chile will be totally fine. But I and Maggie (my dog) will be thinking of both of you.

5. I like Jan. 31st 2008....a LOT

MB said...

numbers 4 and 5 should be 5 & 6 - I don't know what to say about fish biscuts. What kind of fish do you think they taste like?

memphish said...

Whew! Back from Cloverfield and I feel like a road a roller coaster with loops for 90 straight minutes. Plan your pre-movie meal accordingly. I would not recommend seeing it with a hangover. In fact you might want to take an air sickness bag just in case.

If you ever think you want to see this movie, you have to go see it in the theater. The biggest, loudest screen you can find. There's no way this will be even remotely the same at home much as David Lynch said about watching a "film" on your phone.

Now as to whether or not you actually like it, it will depend on whether or not you like this kind of film. This isn't really up there in terms of my favorite type of movie, but I think it was extremely well done, and I have no regrets having gone to see it. I do regret that my local cinema apparently decided to raise movie rates $1.50 since mid-December.

Trevor McFur said...

Are there any Lost shout-outs Holli?

***DISCLAIMER***please note, I realize that on some message boards, the presence of a Lost reference in a movie such as Cloverfield would spur a furious debate as to whether or not said movie can cast any light onto some of the mysteries of Lost. I'm not trying to start that conversation, and I don't believe that this is one of those message boards. I just think that it would be a fun in-joke if they did***END DISCLAIMER***

memphish said...

I had heard going into the movie that there was a series of numbers that were recently revealed in the Find815 game, but if there were I missed them. Same for any LOST shout-outs. The style of shooting made it very difficult to focus on small details. If any turn up, I'm sure DarkUFO or Doc Arzt will find them.

There were the obvious crossovers though with it being a JJ project. Bryan Burk was an Exec. Producer and Giacchino wrote the music that runs through the credits.

Holli

P.S. Mike, did you stay until the very end? If you did and understood the very last thing after the credits ended, please click on my profile and send me an email and tell me what you thought you heard.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Palmer, read this.

I hadn't heard that first little bit about Warner abandoning hd.

Jordan from the 206 said...

And as other have already stated. Go Packers. I hate the VaGiants. Not as much as the Cowbitches, but still a good deal.

Ally, tell your co-workers that the internet says they are both giant douches. Who the hell just so happens to like the 2 teams with the best records in football? Like Trevor already pointed out, they are frontrunning scum buckets. I hate those types.

Mike Campbell said...

i didn't stay for the end of the credits but, luckly, my new job is head projectionist at a theater so i am sure tonight i will be able to check them out and i will in fact get back to you with my comments.

I really liked it because its a monster movie thats not 100% about the monster. going into the movie all i wanted was to see the monster. the guy on aint it cool said 'its not about the monster' and i thought he was an idiot. but they really make you care about the people you are following. maybe i haven't seen a lot of monster movies but this is the first time i had a reaction like this to a monster movie. but the monster is friggen sweet. I didn't catch any lost releated info but i will keep an eye on it.

also i am your brother your best friend forever!!!

PalmerEldritch said...

mike, if someone said something at aintitcool, they probably were an idiot. ;)

jordan, HD-DVD is (probably) on the way out. the studios are something like 70/30 split in favor of Blu-Ray. of course, toshiba immediately started slashing HD-DVD player prices once the studios abandoned them... but i read that a lot of people who bought HD-DVDs over Christmas are returning them because of the Warner/New Line defection to Blu-Ray.

PalmerEldritch said...

oh, jordan, did you ever get your free Blu-Rays from that mailaway offer?

Jordan from the 206 said...

No, I still haven't sent it off yet. I'm thinking I might just send off the new form, even though I didn't buy my PS3 during it's period. It's dvd's are so much better, I might just take the risk. Hopefully they don't care.

FutureAlly said...

Agreed on the "giant douches", to tell you the truth, i don't even think they know anything about football and they just say they like those teams because they're probably the only ones they know about.

memphish said...

I couldn't wait Mike. I googled it and now know what it says. Once a few more folks here have seen the show we can open up a thread on the boards.

As for the trailers, what is everyone thinking about Jumper other than Hayden Christiansen ruined Star Wars so is there any hope for this movie? The Ironman trailer looks good except for Gwyneth Paltrow who annoys the crap out of me. I like me some smartass Robert Downey though. The Star Trek trailer was pretty lame. Just shows you they've got a long way to go to have airable footage.

PalmerEldritch said...

jordan, i got home, checked the mail, and had a freakin' postcard from that Blu_Ray mailaway thing. i shit you not.

bring it up on the blogspot and life'll deliver news. same damn day!

anyhow, the blu-rays are shipping feb. 11th. so, i should have them by the end of next month.

methinks i'll be checking out Cloverfield on monday.

holli, i'm on a Flight of the Conchords kick and should finish the first DVD in about ten minutes.

FutureAlly said...

just got home from watching Cloverfield and all i can say is HOLY SHIT THAT WAS AWESOME!

FutureAlly said...

the only LOST connection i saw was that michael giacchino did the music for the movie or was it just the song for the credits? i was mesmerized by the credits song.

stephanie said...

Ok, that settles it. I'll be seeing Cloverfield on MLK day. Holli, I'm not worried about mine but is it appropriate for other folks' young uns? I hear it's not very scarey.

memphish said...

Steph, I'll send you a PM on the board about it. I don't think I'm spoiling anything in what I have to say, but just in case, I'll only ruin it for you. :-)

'No Country' yesterday - classic.

Ralph- said...

HERE IT COMES! RALPH "THE BIGGEST GODZILLA FAN" APEL'S quick (spoiler free) review of Cloverfield!

UNBELIEVABLE! guys and girls, see this one quick if you are interested in it at all. dont listen to people about what happens in this movie. Just go see it if you are interested. this is more than a movie, this is an experience. Be warned, although it is PG-13 it will scare the pants off your 13 year olds!

For those of you looking for a LOST connection, Keep an eye on the lower right corner of the screen at the begining, i swear that i saw a one frame flash of a Dharma Logo! please help confirm this.

ALSO..... This movie is so unnervingly realistic that there is NO SCORE whatsoever, BUT "ROAR!" (the cloverfield overture) by Michael Giacchino, which is played over the end credits, NEEDS TO BE IN MY ITUNES LIBRARY!!!!

I NEED THAT CUE!!!!!!!

If anyone happens to find it, please download it and send it to dharmalars@gmail.com!!!!

PEACE OUT!!!!

Ralph- said...

JUMPER: all i need to say is that Doug Liman is an awesome Action Director and JOHN POWELL's score is gonna KICK UNHOLY ASS!!

STAR TREK: i hate that franchise, but am fired up for that film!

Trevor McFur said...

Ralph is excited.

PalmerEldritch said...

apparently so.



i'm getting impatient about seeing Cloverfield. sounds like fun.

Mike Campbell said...

Ralph the music during the credits was amazing. all last night i blasted it so i could listen to it while i had to thread movies. i will keep an eye out for it.

stay during the credits. there is a little something. not much though.

Mike Campbell said...

oh a warning though about the movie, someone threw up at our theater last night. dont know if they were drunk or just got motion sickness from the movie :)

Ralph- said...

i always stay during the credits, but did not make out what happened at the end of these.

i may have to discuss it with you via IM

FutureAlly said...

I noticed the Dharma-like logo flash at the beginning, too. I couldn't make out the thing at the end either, but if anything, stay for the musical sweetness that is that credits song.

Jumper looks interesting, don't know if I'm looking forward to it, but I'll def stick it my queue later on. How about that Step Up 2 Da Streets, huh? LOL. these kids sitting in front of me were like, what the hell is that crap?

Jordan from the 206 said...

Just stumbled upon this neat website. Mediamaster.com. Kinda like Pandora.com, but you upload your own stuff. I haven't tried it out yet. Apparently it allows you to upload your music library and stream it from any computer. And you can share you station with friends. Seems to be no storage limit. Could be rather cool.

Jordan from the 206 said...

I want to work at a place where people have this much free time!

Brennan said...

Saw Cloverfield today, and I would agree with everything said. I smelled someone in the theater smoking weed at one point.

The theater that I go to has this pre-movie ad roll hosted by a guy named Bradford Howe. So, this time they show a preview of the upcoming season of Lost. It was an extended version of the commercial on TV now, probably around 2 mintues long. The thing that stuck with me was Locke says "There is a traitor among us".
