Herlihy said...

Well, this was nice to wake up to............. at 1pm. Oops.

Herlihy said...

This episode is set on Day 97. Christmas eve, on island, was supposed to be on Day 94, this tells us that The Shape Of Things To Come was on December 27th. So it's not January yet on the Island.

I'm soooo geeky.

I think in Ben's secret, secret room there is a dial (like your thermostate at home) on this dial are the numbers, 1 to 11 for the amount of smokie you want wandering around the Jungle. Normaly Skokie's at 5 or 6 But then Ben got mad:( So he went and turned Smokie up to..11..At 11 Smokie is BIG, very BIG Like you aint got a chance in hell of surviving, BIG. You know, so BIG that the trees the losties normaly hide in,I just don't think would help? So like on the first day on the Island Smokie is back to 11 remember the trees from episode 1? hmm Maybe he's now at 15 the frickin ground shook!

Stephanie said...

The karaoke is so bad it's good.

Ralph- said...

I sure hope that Ben set Smokie on a Timer! cause that thing does not need to be roaming through the jungle set to 11.

elias said...

My ears are bleeding Steph, but I can stem the flow with my new Dharmalars shirt. Yay!

memphish said...

Yardwork sucks! Listening to 4, count 'em 4, LOST podcasts while you do it -- still leaves you with sucky yardwork. Nice karaoke. Is this going to be Ben's submission? Is he off the hook for a while?

I've stuck some polls up on my blog about the episode. Stop by, vote and discuss.

Holli

Ralph- said...

Holli, are you asking for more?

Stephanie said...

If she isn't, then I am. More karaoke from Ben, please.

Mike Campbell said...

anyone excited for the mario kart wii? sorry to always bring up games :)

Herlihy said...

We've had it for the past two weeks.



Ahem.

Colleen said...

Hey, I know that I'm a few days late, but Happy Birthday Ryan!

Okay, sorry to interrupt :D

Chris JC said...

Herlihy - it's not worth the boast, we've still got months to wait for Smash Bros.

and also we spent nearly double the money on Mario Kart.

Herlihy said...

Sorry, but how often do we get nintendo stuff before the US? hardly ever. I think i have the right to boast. anyway, smash bros comes right after all my exams have finished, which to be honest is perfect timing.

I think the last time that happened was with Metroid Prime or Wind Waker... I can't remember.

I hate that nintendo hates us.

Chris JC said...

It's cos we're the only region where the Mega Drive/Genesis outsold the SNES.

No, I don't get it either.

Silent Bob said...

that lost rap was awesome, but i really hope that guy isn't taking himself seriously. if he is, he's a super nerd. if he isn't, he's a super awesome funny nerd, with mad rapping skillz.

oh, and on the podcast, ben mentioned human giant. its fucking awesome. stick it way up your q. to the top. its the only other show i watch on tv, other than lost. because human giant is such an awesome tv show. i could watch it every day, i know i could. i could watch it every day, it's so good.

but seriously, anyone remotely interested in UCB, child casting agents, racist magicians, or laughing, type human giant in on youtube. you will not be disappointed!

i saw aziz live at the ucb theater in new york, and it was fucking awesome. i had been a fan for a while, and i got to see early screenings of the first episode. it was totally tight. and his stand up was awesome.

Silent Bob said...

and the arrested development themed karaoke was totally bitchin'...and a little bit homo-erotic.

Herlihy said...

Chris JC - I know. Gutting isn't it. I never had a megadrive/genesis. awful machines. Gimme a SNES anyday of the week. Oh how i miss Yoshi's Story.....

elias said...

Here is the clip if you missed another Dharmalars reference ;)

Καλό Πάσχα! Happy Easter everyone!

Brennan said...

Anyone watching MadTV right now. Dominic Monaghan is on and got pantsed by Bobby Lee. The was also a Lost/Lord of the Rings parady.

Chris JC said...

Widmore's gone a bit beardy. Looks like he needs one of these.

I love that clip... and I'm not sure why.

Redrabbitblue said...

Deep Thought Bye Redrabbitblue.

How Does Ben Get Back/or Does He Not?

I just erased a big babble this is better left open. My thought is the island is the only place such things could happen from. Maybe other points on th eplanet but they don't have the resources there or DO THEY off island DHARMA Station? For going home I'd have one if I was Dharma.{Widmore}....
11:58 Atlantic Standerded TimeBeers 4 Through 6 Was Cloverfield Goverment run? OVER

Redrabbitblue said...

"You ruined a funny Joke get out of my offi5ce.".
"O.K.Bye..Harvey"

*BOOBS*
I'm way!!behind in the popculture catargorie:\

PalmerEldritch said...

ralph, nice album art. hells yeah.

elias, i like the happy easter wishes combined with the space pope avatar. fantastic!

have listened to the Dharmalars, the Transmission, and have listened to about a minute of J&J, but don't think i've heard anyone talk about Miles reaction to the Smoke Munster. he seemed (to me at least) to have a reaction to it other than just "ack! a smoke munster." maybe more like "ack!!! i'm a guy who can talk to ghosts and my ghost talkin' powers are freakin' out from the smoke munster!"

interesting to me, it was.


Grand Theft Auto IV this week. w00t!

Brennan said...

Palmer,

Are you going to any midnight opennings for GTA? The best buy near me is going to be open and they are giving away some "GTA themed giveaways". I can't wait.

mr brooks said...

this

Herlihy said...

Don't you just love it when you start listening to lost podcasts then get the overwhelming urge to just say "fuck it" and spoil everything for yourself. ;__;

Woe.

Brennan said...

In honour of the crazy shit on Ben's Narnia-esque door:
Name like an Egyptian

PalmerEldritch said...

tim, is it wrong that the first thing that i did with that link is translate "Cleopatra Does The Nasty"?

brennan, no midnight GTActivities for me. but i'll prolly go tomorrow after work and use a Best Buy giftcard to pay for half.

PalmerEldritch said...

oh! and did i mention that we finally watched Children of Men? only took us ten days or so but we finally broke free of the Children Of Men Netflix Time Vortex and watched it. interesting movie. now, i'm tempted to check out the book.

Trevor O'Fur said...

I'll probably wait until the craze dies down before picking up my copy. GTA-themed giveaways??? What does that mean, hookers and drug-dealers at Best buy? I read a reiew of the game on IGN, they give it a 10/10, and say that the multiplayer game is fantastic.

PalmerEldritch said...

12 minutes and 15 seconds of ROAR (the cloverfield music) available on itunes tomorrow according to AICN.

memphish said...

That's so cool, I'll say "Kablamo!"

memphish said...

Rick Rolling brought to a whole new level.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

mmm... delicious rick rolls!

memphish said...

More potential good news for Comic Con attendees.

Holli

Redrabbitblue said...

Lost is dumb

Redrabbitblue said...

What will be said in the defense of the show lOST?

PalmerEldritch said...

Lost is not dumb. SO THERE!!!!

memphish said...

As it said in that MadTV story, it's not too complicated; you are just an idiot. (Not a personal attack RRB; I kid.)

Holli

FutureAlly said...

good morning, everyone!

what a way to start my week, with some dharmalars!

Redrabbitblue said...

If offense was to be taken I surly would not get it.

Redrabbitblue said...

Tryin to intice some Lost thoughts I'm stuck on if Ben can get off in un-ordinary ways? Can he get back? Take Back to the Future 2 Labs..You got to have a good Lab?

PalmerEldritch said...

"I'm stuck on if Ben can get off in un-ordinary ways?"

thats what she asked? :)


i think that JizzIsland's wacky powers can plop you in the middle of nowhere. possible nowheres must include Tunisia, Nigeria (Eko's homeland, right?), and near Fiji.

i have NO IDEA how or why though. but the magic Island is Narnia/Oz/Wonderland/Neverneverland so it can do what it wants. right?

Redrabbitblue said...

Palmer seriously why Ecko's place/anywhere. I'm thing different.

Redrabbitblue said...

I'm Onboard with certain points on the globe. Like A. The island
B. The dude Rose whent to see.
C.Hmmm Ecko's home could be a spot?
D.Tun's a whatever
E. The Artic/Pole's?Cold place. Possible yet not yet proven.?

FutureAlly said...

HELP! HELP! It's a body and we need principal cast members, please!

memphish said...

BSG question -- why are the corners cut off paper? Has anyone ever explained that?

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

rrb, i'm thinking Nigeria just cuz of Yemi's plane being on the Island.

holli, i think it's a production design joke about "the colonials gear is so realistic and low tech that they DO cut corners." i remember hearing or reading that somewhere. ha ha?

memphish said...

Thanks P. It was one of those funny details that I was sure started out as a joke like that. I'd also be willing to be that some slob producing props for the last episodes is now saying "Why the frak did we do that? I'm sick of cutting paper."

Holli

memphish said...

Hey Ralph -- Any word on what comic books are going to be free this Saturday on Free Comic Book Day?

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

holli! i totally forgot about FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!!

sweet. looking forward to that.

Benjamin said...

I'm fully raiding Ralph's comic book store on FCBD! So hard. I will indeed do a solo karaoke. This was a bonus for the anniversary, and I recognize that it doesn't release me from my obligation. Be warned though, I'll probably not be any better than this one, and you all know how good this one was.

Trevor O'Fur said...

I thought it was because Sci-Fi paper is cooler than regular old paper.

elias said...

It was entertaining at least. Thw world is not yet ready for my rendition of "Southern Nights".

Started a new job on Regent Street today - I'm on the Monopoly board now (London Edition).

Lost talk - my favourite theories stolen from Lostpedia:

- Widmore and Richard were crew on Black Rock, and having spent so many years on the Island they never aged, but Widmore decided to leave the Island.

- Ben can’t kill Widmore because they are each other's 'constant'.

memphish said...

Ben, we'll look forward to the solo karaoke (solaraoke?) . The kid is counting the days until FCBD. We racked up last year because of course most of the people there weren't interested in The Archies. They gave us every free all age book they had.

For those of you who've never bought the LOST DVDs (and we know who you are from previous confessional posts), as of tomorrow, Amazon is selling all 3 sets for 1 low-er price.

Stephanie said...

Elias, how was your Easter? What did mom cook?

PalmerEldritch said...

and did you bring enough for the whole class?

elias said...

We went to a BBQ in Essex and it started raining as soon as we sat down to eat outside. Good day though - whole lamb on a spit good.

Pops was in Jerusalem and now Galilee , celebrating Easter in style.

PalmerEldritch said...

kab-lamb-o!!!

memphish said...

Baby Gob.

Holli

memphish said...

Ally, are you celebrating National Cubicle Day? It seems like it would be up your alley. (Groan.)

Holli

Jon from NKY said...

Awesome

FutureAlly said...

Baby Gob... Awww.... That kid is gonna have the coolest parents ever!

Ironically I don't have a cubicle anymore, but I am looking forward to celebrating the anniversary of the zipper patent, though. Which is tomorrow, apparently.

memphish said...

Also tomorrow is "Free Ice Cream at Ben and Jerry's Day." I've got an alert set on my phone so I don't forget.

Holli

FutureAlly said...

Really? Wednesday is 31 cent scoop at Baskin Robbins.

Good week for ice cream lovers.

Brennan said...

Here you go Trevor:

GTA Giveaways!

Stephanie said...

Awe. I'm excited for a little Arnett baby.

memphish said...

MarioKart Wii is racing in our household now. It reminds me of the Shrek racing game we had on GameCube. That Baby Mario is a sneaky SOB.

Holli

Chris JC said...

Can we bash up some Wii Friend Codes online at some point so we can do some Mario Karting? Now it's out in the Us I stand a greater chance of being ready to race when people are actually awake and interested

memphish said...

We aren't hooked up over the interwebs yet Chris. With a youngster in the house, I try to limit internet access so I don't have to monitor in multiple locales. We do sometimes steal the neighbors WiFi for the iPhone.

Holli

Chris JC said...

Makes sense, Holli.

Silent Bob said...

oh shit! i just got an awesome theory.

so, we know the oceanic 6 are getting off the island this season. but, we don't know that dan, charlette, and miles are. i predict that once the six get on the freighter, the not pennies boaters will double-cross miles, charlette, and dan, and leave them on the island. this will accomplish giving them more time to do their research this season, and give them a motive for revenge against widemore, and, most importantly, a reason for them to survive to next season, which is good, because dan and miles are good characters, and charlette is...well...charlette

HOW MANY LANGUAGES ARE THERE, BITCH?!

Silent Bob said...

i like that theory that ben and charles are each other's constants. its iffy, but it makes sense.

oh, and btw, when widemore says he started drinking when the nightmares came, did that remind anyone else of that david bowie song? no? oh well.

anyways, what does that line mean? is he guilty of something he will do later on the show? or guilty about alex? to tell the truth, that wasn't charles' fault.

andrew. said...

- what's the word blogspot? i've been away because my moms was visiting.

- i just downloaded something like 12 hours of Lost podcasts (thanks again Lost Lowdown) it's always an embarassment of riches when Lost is airing new episodes.

- one of the worst shows ever, "Lil Bush" had a bunch of Lost references this week including a surprise cameo at the very end (which i'm tempted to spoil to spare somebody from sitting through that shitty show, but I don't want to ruin the only worthwhile part. a true conundrum)

- i think i just saw Rebecca Gayheart as a video hoochie in Heavy D's video for "Nothing But Love" from 1994. That was weird & random.

- Lost related content:
* it does seem like the helicopter party was a seperate group from the rest of the freighties, and i fully expect those that survive this season to get folded into our Losties roster. But, at various times this season, they've all demonstrated a willingness to engage in some gun pointing and subterfuge. As retiscent as Daniel seems, he also seems to be fully aware of the plan to kill the Losties.

- good night
