Happy Birthday Aimee!

redrabbitblue said...

Yet another Feb.Bday congrats hope your day is awsome.

Jellymanianos said...

Happy Bithday Aimee.

I am going to be taking ownership of the Lost Videogame for my 360 in a day or so. Has it been out in the States yet? If so, any good?

Mike Campbell said...

I think its out today. I am going to go hunting for it in a few hours. All the previews i have seen make it seem ok. It doesn't seem like the typical TV or Movie game but maybe i have my hopes up because i am such a fanboy and lost can do no wrong.

Jellymanianos said...

Yeah - with you on that Mike, can't get enough of it.

Quick question to all: i want to do a song for the Dharms, but can't find anywhere that'll do downloadable karaoke tracks - any ideas where i can get me some?

Mike Campbell said...

oh and happy birthday aimee!!!!!!!!!

redrabbitblue said...

jellymanianos this may help with the Karoke problem..but I'm not sure ..cause iaint karekoieng..i leave tHAT STUFF TO Chris jc Wich posted some links to karoke for dummies at least thats my guess back IN the dharma lar econimist post heres a copy but the links probly won't come through..we'll see together........

" Chris JC said...
(repost cos I screwed up my HTML)

I used a program that I use in my other life as the kind of guy who needs to be able to multitrack audio recordings, but I reckon you'd all do okay with which is free.

Open your backing track in Audacity then hit record and you'll record a brand new track over the top of the previous track - sing into your mic and then when you've finished you can bounce it all down to a WAV file. then just run it through an MP3 encoder and you're laughing.

7:54 AM

Nope no links go to the archives :( and while your there if you see a polar bear look the other way ..look away:)

PalmerEldritch said...

those garfield cartoons sans the Garf are indeed pretty terrific. thanks for the link.

mike and tim, we've found two reviews of the game so far. one guy hated it and the other guy loved it. as such, i'd be really interested in knowing what you guys think about the game if you do end up trying it out.

if you're looking for the reviews, i think they're in the previous couple of threads.

holy crap! new LOST tomorrow night. sweet.

redrabbitblue said...

Palmer I was at Wallmart at 7;47AM ANd No LOST GAME what the F wallmart...
O well next week I'll nab it at cosco unless I here Awsome stuff...Ireally want to choke cooper:(

FutureAlly said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AIMEE!!!

PalmerEldritch said...

that'd be great if they had old skool Boss Battles in the LOST game.

like a giant Cooper who swings a chain around the room destroying everything the chain hits. then you have to trick him into getting the chain stuck on a support beam and use it to choke him out.

LOST: Via Domus for the Super Nintendo!

PalmerEldritch said...

p.s. happy birthday, aimee!

redrabbitblue said...

Owww future ally RRB's got a hang over:)

MB said...

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY AIMEE!!

(I was comatose @4:49am this morning when I SHOULD have said it)

kablammo

MB said...

DOH!

RRB snaches the kablammonation....

(waiting for the belated kablammo...)

redrabbitblue said...

What would you like to do in the Lost game??????


I would go play in the pile of tubes and see who wrote the original stuff,and what they had to say.."Razinski takes forth dump of the day (stay away from dharma taco's)..NEXT

redrabbitblue said...

I GOT A KABLAMO AND MISSED IT shit all that yellin makes my head hurt ..a sad belated kablamooooo:(

FutureAlly said...

"I GOT A KABLAMO AND MISSED IT all that yellin makes my head hurt"

twss?

MB said...

Holy crap - just read about the EARTHQUAKE in the UK - everyone okay over there?

redrabbitblue said...

wow dido MB

redrabbitblue said...

thanks ally all my dumbness would be underapperciated with out the TWSS:)

PalmerEldritch said...

yeah, i'll third or fourth the hope that nobody met with a grisly fate in that earthquake.

and i hope that it doesnt impede anyone's ability to go out and buy LOST: Via Domus and review it for me. ;)

FutureAlly said...

I hope everyone is ok. I was kinda wondering why no Ukers were on today :/

Mike Campbell said...

i just got back from stupid semi stupid best buy and at first they only had it for PC. and i was like well i guess that will be ok cause i just need to play the game. I wanted the points on 360 but oh well. So i walk back through the console section and they have it for the PS3 now but not the 360. since i am a loser and have both systems i ended up getting the PS3 version because after an hour or so of waiting they couldn't find time to unload the x box version of the game. Red Card for Best Buy. I will type up some impressions later if anyone cares.

MB said...

I'm assuming jellyman's alright - he was here earlier. Waiting to hear from Chris, Elias...

elias said...

Nothing to report about the earthquake. Everybody I have spoken to slept through it.

I will pray for Chris.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Mike, Seeing as how myself and Palmer both have PS3's, we would be glad to hear what you think.

MB said...

Finally posted something new at der SPLOG. Just a few add-ons to the podcast.

PalmerEldritch said...

elias, bravo on the omarion reference.

we had a little mini-earthquake a few years back. woke up from it, assumed it was a garbage truck going by, and went back to bed.

Jordan from the 206 said...

I've experienced a few earthquakes, living in the Pacific rim and all. We had a 6.8 back in '01 which was a bit startling. Especially for me. I was working construction at the time. And had just moments earlier got down from a ladder about 25 ft up on the side of a house. Had it hit about 30 seconds earlier, I would have had quite the nasty fall.

MB said...

Yikes Jordan - glad you were alright.
I remember that quake too - much weaker down here but definitely felt it. Certainly enough to make all local news break into scheduled programming every 10 mins. to let us know how "on-the-story" they were. I always crack up at local news - Kim's traffic reports excluded of course - that IS needed information.

memphish said...

I've been through about 10 earthquakes that I've felt between living in Japan and So Cal including Northridge and Big Bear. Northridge taught me the lesson of always having one phone in the house that doesn't need electricity. That $14 streamline has been a wonder for years now. Fortunately for me I was in San Diego when both of those named quakes hit and while the shaking was pretty severe and it is not fun to be woken up by them, there wasn't any damage. I had a number of friends in LA who had Northridge damage though, and of course the 10 being closed hurt everyone in LA.

Now in Memphis we're close to a big fault that hasn't caused a big quake in 150 years. But when it did last hit big church bells rang in Boston, the land rose about 30 feet in Arkansas at Crowley's Ridge and the Mississippi River ran backwards. There have been a few measurable earthquakes since we've been back in Memphis, but none I've personally felt. We're probably due any day now.

FutureAlly said...

where are all the ladies today? i feel like i accidentally walked into the men's room.

FutureAlly said...

of course there comes holli as soon as i say something about her not being here.

how's that for irony?

t-dot kim said...

We're here Ally...just waiting for something other than video games to talk about :P

memphish said...

Preach it sister!

Holli

memphish said...

Check out this Arrested Development movie story and see if there's anything you would add.

Holli

Jordan from the 206 said...

An Arrested Development movie would be awesome. I just fear it would make me miss it all the more.

Mike Campbell said...

First off sorry about all the video game talk ladies but its a Lost Video Game. come on now :)

Might have to give a Red Card to the video game. Played about an hour of it. When you first start it, it asks you to install something onto the PS3 hard drive. I dont play a lot of PS3 games is this normal. After about ten minutes it was installed. I thought this would cut down on the loading screens but it still has a loading screen every 5 minutes but it only stays on for a few seconds. Also they display tips during the loading screen but you can read them cause the times are so quick.

The game doesn't look good at all. It drops frames all the time and the graphics look like a PS2 game. Most of the voice actors are ok. They do their best to sound like the real actors but then there is the voice actor of Locke. I dont understand what they were thinking. He doesn't sound like Terry O'Quinn at all. He just flat out sounds bad. Very Very bad. The way they do flashbacks are kinda cool. they keep repeating a short scene and you have to take a picture to match the destoryed photo they showed you before the flashback started. I have come to one puzzle and they didn't tell you how to solve it at all. you just kinda fiddle with it. It didn't take long. Then you have to go through the caves. i dont even want to talk about the caves other then there are random dark pits that you cant see. i quit after i fell into one for the 4th time.

But other then the poor graphics and poor gameplay i like it :)

Jordan from the 206 said...

Hmmmm.

t-dot kim said...

OMG...so basically, the sales people in my company thinks we're all whores. I understand selling ads for our traffic reports, but this is too much.

Check out this memo I got today:
Hi Kim,
As you can see we have new McDonalds tags today. Please read this slowly and sensually. (Me, seriously? WTF!!).

Here's the tag:
Enjoy McDonald's Cinnomon Melts, soft warm cinnamon drenched dough smothered in sweet and sticky melted icing. Quite possibly the sweetest part of your day. I'm lovin' it.

SERIOUSLY??!?! Ugh.

Mike Campbell said...

i might buy them depending on how sensually you read it :)

That sucks. But thats how the rich keep getting richer :(

Trevor McFur said...

I think that adding a 'TWSS' there would be redundant. But I think that I speak for the men of the blogspot when I say that we'd all enjoy hearing a reading on the next TLI.

I have one or two additions to the AD list ... George Sr. trying to teach Michael and GOB a lesson ... Barry Zuckerkorn or Bob Loblow ... Carl Weathers.

t-dot kim said...

Not happening, lol.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Kimb, Make sure you giggle after saying, "I'm loving it."

memphish said...

I read Kim's copy and couldn't help but think there will be a hue and cry for he to say it in French on the next TLI!

I want Anne, her, in the AD movie. I can't even imagine trying to come up with one 2 hour story for AD. Tough good for the creators.

Holli

memphish said...

"for he to say it" should be "for her to say it" Damn slow fingers!

Holli

Jordan from the 206 said...

FCC rejected Bud Light Super Bowl Ad

PalmerEldritch said...

ok, so, maybe i'd enjoy Kim reading that in her patented RadioVoice(tm).

and maybe i'd enjoy it more in French.

but not knowing that poor Kim was doing it against her will. :(

free the Toronto One!

PalmerEldritch said...

the T-Dot One?

that sounds cooler. Oceanic 6, eat your hearts out.

Chris JC said...

HEY!

Look what we have:

Talk about your LOST Easter Eggs...

The mug is not pictured.

Chris JC said...

Do not pray for me...

PRAY FOR OMARION!

I was awake at the time - didn't hear or feel a thing.

MB said...

Kim - that's so retarded! Was the sales person new or something? Even if they could get someone willing to read that, I can't imagine thinking that the traffic report is the place to start sexing up McD's. WTF?!?

FutureAlly said...

"I was awake at the time - didn't hear or feel a thing."

that's what she said.

FutureAlly said...

don't give in, kim! if you do this, this time, imagine what else they'll have you do.

FutureAlly said...

so where is the birthday girl? we wanna know where the party be at.

MB said...

Slow day

FutureAlly said...

indeed.

FutureAlly said...

everybody is probably at the blogspot party for aimee, except for us. our invitation must have gotten lost in the mail.

Chris JC said...

You could pass the time by praying for Omarion.

MB said...

I think someone may have said this already, but apparently TPTB are going to air episode 8 BEFORE the mini break of a month after all, and then finish the season in April/May with the final 5 episodes.

SEASON 4 SCHEDULE

FutureAlly said...

hopefully that month-long break will fly by.

PalmerEldritch said...

hmm... wednesday night? anything on tv?

jordan, mike, and the ps3 posse, Home will be cool. especially if you play Warhawk, Uncharted, or Resistance.

and europeans, the PS3 and PlayTV will be fun for you.

mike, how goes Via Domus?

everybody, what's up? i'm getting psyched for LOSTursday. more LOSTie goodness. hell yeah.

chris, what the heck was with that Official LOST Crumpled Piece of Aluminum Foil you had? sorry, Aluminium Foil?

PalmerEldritch said...

mb, you should definitely e-mail that link to Kim and Ralph. that way they can let their listeners know.

mb, i've been avoiding your spoiler segments. not cuz of you or Mac, but because of the spoilers. when would be a safe time to listen to them? during the short hiatus or are you so forward thinking that you're already talking about episodes 9 thru 13?

FutureAlly said...

Lost used to be on wednesday nights. now nothing is on, except for America's Next Top Model, in case anyone is interested in that, the girls are moving into the house tonight, so i'm sure there will be plenty of catfights in regards as to who gets what bed.

The worse I've seen so far was the one girl who spilled water on one bed after another girl had claimed it, so that the original bed owner would think the new girl had peed on the bed.

If you're still reading, after all that, this season they have a girl on there that apparently drinks her own breastmilk.

FutureAlly said...

how did i miss that? i didn't even see the kablamo coming.

MB said...

Palmer - I go as far forward as the spoilers go. So if there's a spoiler for the season finale I'll speek da trute mon (wow, jamaican accent just looks weird typed out). I'll talk about most of what's out there, except the FULL PLOT SYNOPSES which Dark UFO has been posting (with plenty of safeguards I will say). I don't like to do those - when I HAVE included them, I've edited them down to be more ambiguous.

HOWEVER.....I do a little banter with Mac FIRST, and then I go CHRONOLOGICALLY (starting with info on the episode that will air that week - and usually including some audio clips/sneak peeks), so you can always stop listening whenever you get to a point where you don't want to get spoiled anymore.

For the current episode, as an example, after tomorrow night, you could listen to the first 10 mins. or so of "Constantly Ahead" and not get spoiled (if you just love hearing a load of information that you already know :) )

If I was fancy I'd try and do chapters, but I'm not fancy, I'm very plain :/

FutureAlly said...

you may not be fancy, but you're good enough for us, mb.

:)

Trevor McFur said...

She drinks her own breast milk?

Is that, uhhh, directly from the tap?

MB said...

Ally's cool :)

Just posted a link at the SPLOG for anyone who wants to listen to the UPCOMING Official Lost Podcast a day or two (or three? or ?) early.
(I'm not even going to post a direct link here to be safe)

FutureAlly said...

I haven't actually witnessed her do it, so I wouldn't know if it's direct from the tap.

From what I understand, she squeezes?? and then pours it in a glass.

She's weird.

PalmerEldritch said...

i hope she wins and does a "Got Milk?" campaign.

milk mustache indeed.

redrabbitblue said...

I saw a dirty movie once when all was said and done the gent. got out a bowl off cereal and I guess you know where this goes so ill stop now:)

Ralph- said...

sorry that i haven't been around this week. i have been sofa king busy that it is insane!!

tomorrow i am finally getting to edit and transcribe my michael allred interview... sigh ... is there anyone here who is good at transcribing and wish to do it for me?

didn't think so.... ugh.

i prefer creative writing as opposed to taking dictation, especially when it comes to such a wordy interview... yipes. just yipes!

Chris JC said...

PALMER:
Play-TV - I'll believe that when I see it. ESPECIALLY in Europe.

The foil was wrapped around a chocolate egg. It was purchased by my housemate who has no interest in Easter, but plenty of interest in a LOST mug and a chocolate egg. I still think they should market the DHARMA cups.

RALPH:
Among many other things, I'm actually an audio typist but won't be available until after the weekend. If you're still struggling after then, give me a shout.

Chris JC said...

Jellyman: drop me an IM on the forum with the tune you're interested in and I'll see what I can do (no promises, mind)

Chris JC said...

Me again. Here to bring you:

ULTRADOG

Jellymanianos said...

Christoph,

I have no idea what tune to do, but i'm thinking Desparado - that'll make sense when you see the mad shit i had to do in a recent photo shoot for work. Actually, the ad should be online by now.. hang on a sec...
nope, it's not, but i have the proofs: Mental Tim

Btw, earthquake? what a load of bollocks. It did wake up Mrs Iris Henthrop of 42 Melchett Avenue, Lincoln, who was awoken by her Steradent solution falling her bedside table. NOT an earthquake.

Chris JC said...

That's excellent - are you a model or actor?

This is news to me.

Jellymanianos said...

Reading back that last post - it could come across as a David Brentesque way of crow barring in the fact i'm modelling on the side.... this is not the case. If i was i'd show you this: Tim
so..............

redrabbitblue said...

Heres somthing you may want to ponder upon.

I think Miles,Charlotte, and Dan all had Flash Forwards Heres how it works.

Dan's the easiest He sees the 815 news and crys cause he was on the island and stuff happened maybe he became close with the 815ers.
Charlotte a little tougher I think she may be aiding those who want to go back, So maybe by her finding the polar bear this could lead to a way back? She seemed to reconize the dharma logo and look for it..On the island when shes in the kitchen she looks at the stuff like its not somthing shes seen before.
miles
is the tuffest it all hinges on the money if it turns out to not be code
and he really just wants money well I guess he dosent get it and now surches for dead drug dealers stashes. In hopes of gettin his 2.2 mill.
Now you all are sayin what about Naomi she had a flashback:)
As for the news and the plane on the bottom of the ocean.
I think they did'nt need a fake plane till the 6 came back then people started asking where the plane was so they had to do the cover up with it on the bottom of the ocean To stop all the curiosity.
Frank not so sure yet i actually forgot about him till just now:) SO what da ya all think Plausable?

redrabbitblue said...

First Paragraph add Dans memory sucks..

Chris JC said...

Jellyman, your backing track is incoming.

Kim - can we have "Constant Craving" by the resolutely lower-case k.d. lang on the playlist for the next TLI?

Jellymanianos said...

good work mate

Jellymanianos said...

got it Chris, you know what i'll be doing this weekend... no not that you cheeky monkey. Honestly, can't take you anywhere.

redrabbitblue said...

RE above
Frank may be the easiest. He was mad about the cover up so he called them on it..Thats no the plane what are you gonna do now he's are real Sam Thomas?

Glad your still with us 2 16 glad you did'nt get sucked into the earth!from 2 15

redrabbitblue said...

The Ladies seem Lost at the Blogspot today so heres some eye candy
Fabio on lost pic

redrabbitblue said...

Also If I was a ladie I would be diggin on this site. It's video games for GIRLS

Stephanie said...

I had a moment of weakness as well as boredom at work and listened to the leaked Official Lost podcast that should be released after tonight's episode. Sounds like The Constant will be kick-butt.

Chris JC said...

So did I and, yes, very much looking forward to it.

FutureAlly said...

"cheeky monkey"

hehehehe

Chris JC said...

Tim, you prize plonker, you've gone and amused the Yanks.

Gor' blimey, guvnor! It's the nuts! (etc)

Here - try this: UK Slang

I suggest you go straight to "fanny" and find out why we get slightly amused by its use.

FutureAlly said...

how unusual, here, fanny is someone's behind, not their front.

i'll continue reading and yet you know which ones are my favorite, i'll also try to include them in my everyday vocabulary.

FutureAlly said...

I googled Texas slang to see if I could share something and stumbled upon this.


CO's Guide to Prison Slang

Chris JC said...

Alejandra, my friend, that is truly splendid.

Or "pukka", if you prefer.

redrabbitblue said...

So i GUESS you all don't think My FF theroy works?
I got one more add on (Drunk blog use caution)
Charlote looks at the news paper as if it's old news somthin she knows is false at this point we think as viewers that she no's nothing other than 815is missing but to me with her mannerrithims she see'ssomthin she no's is not true she saw the survivers.. And knows for fact there alive..so she acts on it in her way find clues that lead you t your target Frank calls them on it sayin hey I know yuoand your ways, Dan just plain forgot, and Miles needs some dough

FutureAlly said...

I can already tell you that "I'm easy" is not one that I'll be throwing around.

FutureAlly said...

How's this?

I may be rat arsed tomorrow night.

that sounds too weird, i think i'm gonna have to work on my british slang.

FutureAlly said...

My favorite is probably 'rubbish', just because it's one that i'm familiar with.

memphish said...

Palmer, Here's one LOST fan and gamer's review of Via Domus so far. I don't know what platform he's using.

So here is my review of the game so far. (Through Episode 4)

Story is intruiging and well told. 9.25 of 10

Controls are sloppy and annoying at times 5.5

Puzzles and games are simple and under developed - 6.75

All and all it is a good sidebar to Lost, but as a stand alone game, so far, it is not that great. The action is slow, the story seems to jump too fast through the shows story.

Overall Rating (keep in mind I am an Avid Gamer and an ex Game tester)

A solid 6, but no higher. All this hype for a game that has limited replay value and is shorter than Lockes temper.

P.s. The best part of this game so far is the score, which is as beautiful as it is in the show.

MB said...

RRB - I am crunching your theory in my brain - so far it's working out as possible. Cool idea - I totally wouldn't have thought of it....hmmm....

PalmerEldritch said...

holli, sounds like it might be a good idea to pick it up when it's in the bargain bin in a few weeks. :)

memphish said...

I think that's going to be the case Palmer. The guy whose review I copied anticipates being through the entire game by the time the episode airs tonight. He's going to do a complete review and I'll link it when it's done. His basic take though is that unless you're obsessed, rent don't buy or pick it up used. BTW he's playing the PS3 version.

PalmerEldritch said...

WOO-HOO!


kim, did you stand up and refuse to speak sensually about mcdonald's sticky buns? or did you acquiesce and produce the hottest traffic report ever?

/used acquiesce in a sentence
//spelled it correctly on the first try

t-dot kim said...

I couldn't read the tag w/o laughing. I didn't sex-it-up in anyway. I can't do it. Not for what they pay me :P

I tried reading it once before my traffic report, but it's just not right. I could NOT keep a straight face, and my parents listen to my traffic reports...so no, I didn't do it.

PalmerEldritch said...

i'll take "couldn't keep a straight face" as "fought courageously for the integrity of women world over." yay, kim!!!!!

you're a true Canadian hero.

FutureAlly said...

I'm glad you didn't give in, Kim. Good for you.

PalmerEldritch said...

although, if you ever change your mind, i'm sure you could get quite a ratings spike.

dirty old men need radio too.

PalmerEldritch said...

or dirty old women.

/not that there's anything wrong with that

t-dot kim said...

lol...thanks Palmer,

No, I've said NO to many things they've asked me to read on air. They've asked us to sing a jingle, use accents, and I'm not about it. I only have 45 seconds for a traffic report--including the tag and sign off! I'm not going to put on a "traffic show"

PalmerEldritch said...

silly accents?!

do tell. do canadians make fun of french canadians in their commercials or would that anger to large a group of potential clients? southern accents then? boston? new york accents?

maybe the germans?

FutureAlly said...

people expect alot from everyone for the little pay they give. i'm sure it's not any different no matter what our job is.

getting paid to read copy and fly

THAT'S KABLAMMO!!

NOT KABLAMMO!!!

they were buns not fries. i guess they figured buns would be sexy??

Well...buns CAN be sexy
