/life goal fulfilled

Herlihy said...

you must have pretty low expectations of your life if that's a life goal fulfilled. :p

PalmerEldritch said...

also pretty sad that i only had one life goal!

memphish said...

No karaoke? Doesn't that mean Ben's supposed to sing?

Holli

memphish said...

Ralph, one of your favorite movies, Top Secret, served as inspiration on Top Chef last night.

Holli

Ralph- said...

there is karaoke, from emily.

Did they make Flaming Swine Balls on Top Chef?

memphish said...

Sorry, I was too distracted by Mel and his tear to see the part about karaoke. As for Top Chef they cooked beef in honor of Val Kilmer dressed as a cow, though flaming swine balls could have been a winner.

MB said...

Holli -
Was it just me or was there suprisingly little comment from the judges on how lame the "connection" was between their dish & the movie. I guess it's a good thing the food kicked ass.

MB said...

I'm re-posting this question (from me) from the last thread in hopes that someone might have an answer (b/c I'm annoyingly persistent):

"I need to get an HDMI cable and looking on monoprice.com I see that there are different kinds - 24 AWG vs. 28 AWG, some are Category 2, and some are labelled "high quality".

So does anyone know, for use with an HD cable box (I don't do any gaming), how much of a difference do the different types make - is my picture going to look SIGNIFICANTLY better by using a "high quality cable? I just don't know what all the details mean."

Herlihy said...

if you get the higher quality thing, then it's going to be better.

Bound to be, it should do exactly what it says on the tin / box / packaging.

Ralph- said...

as far as i know, HDMI is HDMI. there is no difference in quality. a cheap HDMI cable is no worse than a really expensive one.

Herlihy said...

that wasn't much help was it? Sorry.

Jimmy said...

I'm backing up Ralph on that one...I have heard the same.

MB said...

lol - that would make sense Herlihy - I just wonder HOW much of a difference it makes, b/c my experience is that "higher quality" cables can be a bit of a ripoff for how much they charge (although monoprice.com is pretty cheap all-around).
I know with audio cables, unless I'm using them for some professional purpose where small variances really show, I cannot hear a significant difference between the sound piping thru an RCA cable with gold plated connectors and a cheap-o one.

MB said...

Thanks Ralph and Jimmy

Thralimmy.....?

MB said...

Just when you thought Sarah Silverman and Jimmy Kimmel's f**k-song-fest was over, someone had to go and make it all f**king political

MB said...

Who wants to live on Mars?


(no, this truly is not a joke...I guess)

MB said...

Forgot to say:
THANKS Dharmalars - for the Lars!

Herlihy said...

mb - I'm pretty sure the virgle thing is an April Fool's joke.

But i guess you already knew that.

MB said...

Indeed Heerlihy, although - they certainly went full steam on the prank - good one!

Herlihy said...

Well, i did see to cotton on pretty much straight away that it wasn't real.

I don't think i can remember any april fools that fooled me... Hmm. Maybe it's because i am too street smart. Must be.

Ralph- said...

kablamo

Herlihy said...

I must admit, with some embarrassment, i don't get the whole "kablamo" thing... :(

Ralph- said...


KABLAMO ORIGINS!

MB said...

then, if you happen to be the 4th, 8th, 15th, 16th, 23rd, 42nd, or 108th poster on a thread - you may KABLAMMO it if it is your wish. we also usually KABLAMMO #69 cause we're all "filthy bastards" as someone was called on the last thread (and honored by it) :)

Herlihy said...

Oh right.. That seems, logical... :/

Stephanie said...

I feel like My Name is Earl was rather retarded tonight except for Randy's tears.

andrew. said...

- i'm officially requesting my Emily drawing.
(between listening to Galactica Watercooler, Jay & Jack, Cue The Film & the 'Lars, Emily has become a bit of a podcast celebrity in my household)

- I usually like heavily structured podcasts, but this episode of the 'Lars was a good'un.

- I'm totally shocked that Ralph & Ben hadn't seen Heavy Metal a million times already. The 1st night it ever showed on HBO (probably 1983 or 84) I was a young'n and my grandmother was visiting. I was flipping through the channels on the TV when I saw a cartoon. My young mind had been progammed to always stop on cartoons. It just so happened to be the scene where the big boobed lady is rolling around on her bed naked. My grandmother flipped out.

- Happy Losthursday everybody. ticking down the weeks already!

Stephanie said...

I'm always surprised to hear a podcast that doesn't include a message from Emily from Ohio.

that's what she said...

Happy Frak'n BSG day!

at least it's something to get us through the Lost hiatus.

Stephanie said...

Lots to google from the Lars.

JSP Safety Products said...

Sweet, it's friday, and i'm off to Malaga on Sunday, i have the Lars DL'ed and i'm finishing work early today with the specific intentions of recording another karaoke track.

However, i may prolong emailing it to the boys until next week in a vain attempt to get that lazy arse Ben to sing something.

Note to Ben - i have all the karaoke you'll need, just mail me and i'll hook you up baby! (then you don't need to go down the illicit path)

JSP Safety Products said...

fuck it - work login again you all know this is Jelly by now, right?

PalmerEldritch said...

Jellyman Safety Products.

Chris!!!! SHORT CIRCUIT IS BACK!!! In a desperate attempt to squeeze every last cent/pence from our pockets, Johnny Five will be returning to cinemas. Johnny Five Alive! And he's a greedy little bastard who wants your money!

Hey. Cylons tonight, eh? Sweet. Should be entertaining. Better be entertaining.

What would we do if it sucked? What if the Fifth Cylon were LOST's Achara?!!!!

E-gads. Let's hope it doesn't come to that. If it does, we should start an internet mail-in campaign where we send SciFi packages of Snausages until they write the character off. :)

Benjamin said...

Palmer, you're so close to it that you can't see the obvious connection. The fifth toaster is Johnny Five! And there's nothing for it now but for Bill Adama to disassemble his ass.

Jelly, I'll hit you up when I stop getting saved by listener submissions. I'm not being lazy, I'm just well aware of my limitations.

FutureAlly said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KIRK!


/HABIRK??

Chris JC said...

OBLIGATORY CATCH-UP

Ralph: there is karaoke, from emily.

Dear God, help us.

MB: Thanks Ralph and Jimmy

Thralimmy.....?


Damn - I knew I should have sent you copies of Look Around You along with those other discs.

Herlihy: I don't think i can remember any april fools that fooled me

Channel Four Teletext on April 2nd reported AS FACT the one about Kevin Smith remaking "Once" under the title of "Busking", to be filmed in Dublin and star Colin Farrell and Rosario Dawson with the stars of the original writing the songs.

Andrew: I usually like heavily structured podcasts

And yet you listen to Cue the Film?

PalmerEldritch:
Chris!!!! SHORT CIRCUIT IS BACK!!!


Number Five is still alive? I've been hearing this rumble for quite some time (along with the intriguing rumour of a remake of Phantom of the Paradise). Nice to see the original guys are still involved. I think I'd prefer a proper sequel, though, rather than a remake. Although, I guess a blacked up Fisher Stevens definitely would not fly in this day and age so they'd have to lose the character or recast him.

And it's "Captain Happy B. Kirk", surely?

Jordan from the 206 said...

I am HATING my job right now. Two days in a row now that I have had to work an entire day from start to finish without getting to slack off and visit the blogspot. Ugh.

Back to last thread real quick. Jimmy, no worries mate. I got the nature of the post from the get go. It is all good. But ms. T-Dolt, I'm not so sure about her comment. lol.

That Obama video was great MB. Dang, some people have WAY too much time on their hands. Makes people like us look like workaholics.

Hell fraking yeah! BSG today. Here's to it not sucking and Apollo not acting like a total pansy. lol.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Happy getting older day Kirk. Be sure to go buy yourself something foolish today. And when the girlfriend gets mad respond, "But it's my birthday." If anything, that excuse just might be worth it.

I'm still waiting for a Batteries Not Included sequel.

elias said...

"i'm off to Malaga on Sunday" gave it away Jelly - enjoy!

and Happy Birthday Kirk - we're in blogspot birthday season now.

memphish said...

Happy Birthday Kirk!

Burger day and Birthday. Guess that makes it your Burthday.

Holli

FutureAlly said...

Be sure to go buy yourself something foolish today. And when the girlfriend gets mad respond, "But it's my birthday."

that actually works. i do it every year. you can get away with almost anything today.

MB said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY K!

Holli's right - birthday AND burger day together? You ARE truly blessed. :)

PalmerEldritch said...

birthday, burger day, day off, friday, AND battlestar galactiday!

good stuff.

thanks for the birthday wishes, everybody. very kind of you!

i'm importing Seasons 1 and 2 of the LOST Soundtrack into iTunes right now. thanks, girlfriend. thirlfriend!

actually the soundtrack is a little strange to listen to without jimmy's voice to point out thematic details and episode titles. i'll get used to it in a few minutes, i'm sure.

not sure if i'll buy anything for myself today. maybe pre-order GTAIV or MGS4. hmmm...

hey. did ally miss a kablamo!?!?!

PalmerEldritch said...

p.s. spicy baconator for breakfast at 11:30 am. mmm...

FutureAlly said...

i believe holli missed the kablamo.

good to hear you're having a good birthday, kirk.

Stephanie said...

Happy Birthday, palmer.

PalmerEldritch said...

thanks!

anyone else got cylon fever? how long has it been since the last BSG episode?

and how long until new LOST?

FutureAlly said...

too long.

PalmerEldritch said...

"anyone else got cylon fever? how long has it been since the last BSG episode?"

in retrospect, that sounds like i'm asking if you want to bang a cylon. let me rephrase that as "anyone else really looking forward to BSG?"

although, if you want to talk about you'd like to bang a cylon, go ahead. i just hope for your sake that you're not talking about a Cylon Centurion.

man, these people look psyched for more battlestar!

Stephanie said...

I'm watching my favorite episode now- Unfinished Business. Jordan, what did you think of that one?

FutureAlly said...

so when and where are we meeting for hamburgers later for kirk's birthday? or have the burgers already been had?

Benjamin said...

Happy day, duder!

Ralph- said...

I am afraid of the spicey baconator, but, fuck it, i will eat one.

Happy Birthday Comic Con D'Lars Shirt Posse Member!!

as for the eggs that i am supposed to eat. I put my foot down. i will not eat 100.

"as for the eggs that i am supposed to eat. I put my foot down. i will not eat 100."

I therefore call chicken AND pussy!

Don't tease us with awesomeness and then reneg...

Boooo-urns! Boooo-urns!

PalmerEldritch said...

boy, howdy. the spicy baconator definitely got the better of me. the pizza and ice cream cake was easily taken care of though.

again, thanks to everyone for the really nice birthday wishes. i really appreciate all the good will and cheer. :)

ralph, i'm not impugning your eatsmanship, but you might as well tell everyone that you're going to attempt 100 deviled eggs cuz i dont think its humanly possible to get past 60 or 70 without vomiting. the thing i'm really worried about is if you have sufficient reading material in the bathroom for the after effects.

Trevor O'Fur said...

Happy belated birthday, kirk.

The Cylons are more bangable than the humans. And yeah, I'm talking about the metal ones.

No 100 eggs!!!! I agree, pussy and chicken!

For a guy that's responsible for the destruction of the human race, Baltar has some good times.

Chris JC said...

Ralph: as for the eggs that i am supposed to eat. I put my foot down. i will not eat 100.

Ralph has spoken, 200 it is.

PalmerEldritch said...

i like your deranged mode of thought.

but why not '300?'

"Madness?! This.is.the.Laaaaaars!!!"

Herlihy said...

I'd just like to express my excitement about the fact that Doctor Who shall be on my TV screen in less than 90 minutes.

Whoo!

MB said...

HOLY SHIT!! I forgot - Doctor Who is ON right now isn't it?! SWEET!
Better start tuning in the magic box!

Thanks Herlihy - therlihy!

andrew. said...

- Battlestar Galactica was excellent. I read a stupid blurb a couple of days ago that said that not much happened in the episode. I was mad that i'd read it, but since whoever wrote it was a crackhead, no harm done.

- i hope there's a thread on the MYOKM forum because i want to delve into point-by-point episode discussion.

- if i understand correctly, Ralph hasn't seen "Cool Hand Luke" yet. He may want to do the research before tackling the 108 egg challenge. It's definitely more about the aftermath than getting it down the gullet. It's a quick way to get rock-hard abs though.

Stephanie said...

So, I hear the egg-eating scene in Cool Hand Luke is an allusion or a metaphor for something. What is it?

Stephanie said...

The bad side of eating a bunch of eggs.

herlihy, thanks for wetting our appetites without giving too much away.

Chris JC said...

KABLAMO

US Doctor Who fans. Try not to read the previous post.

Obviously if you're reading THIS post then you probably saw it already, but you never know, for some mad reason you might be reading the blog backwards.

Herlihy, sir, it might be our duty to respect the spoiler code.

Chris JC said...

The previous post before Stephanie's post, that is.

this comment will make no sense if you're taking the mad but, ultimately-quite-useful-on-this-occasion step of reading the Blogspot backwards, but if you are all will become clear.

Herlihy said...

:(

I'm sorry. I forgot all about that. I sincerely apologise.

Chris JC said...

It's okay, matey, it's easily done.

I'm just saying we'd be gutted if we came on and saw a LOST spoiler we weren't expecting to encounter.

Note that you have the power to delete the post if you want to, sir.

Glad you enjoyed, though. Come and chat on the Doctor Who thread on the forum - I have decreed it to be in line with UK showings :D

Even if I still made use of my trusty ROT13 encoder:

Qba'g shpx jvgu Endhry sebz Pbebangvba Fgerrg - fur'yy fperj lbh hc.

Chris JC said...

Sorry, lad. I feel like I've bullied you into deleting your entry now.

Glad you liked it, though, Rusty's opening episodes can be a bit flat, and his closing episodes too.

And his episodes that neither open nor close a series.

I liked this one though - certainly better than New Earth from a couple of years back. Anyway - probably best for the forum. Sorry, normal guys.

Chris JC said...

I'm clearly The Internet's dad.

By the way: "Son of Rambow" = Excellent.

Chris JC said...

Charlton Heston dies

UK smothered in heavy snow even though it's spring

Events not believed to be connected.

memphish said...

Did the snow part mysteriously? If it did, they are connected. I caught part of Planet of the Apes Friday night. Coincidence or fate?

Holli

elias said...

Decided to see Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis instead of Rambow but I'll probably make it next weekend.

Heston:

To Shit on or upon in Greek, Poop on

"Heston ton malaka"

Chris JC said...

You finally did it, you snowy bastards!

Chris JC said...

"Heston ton malaka"

Shit on a wanker!?

Ralph- said...

it's funny cause as soon as i typed the thing about the eggs, i thought that i could probably up the count. the thing is, i am afraid what it will do to my heart.

i think i could do 100, but am way afraid of what it will do to me in the long runs.

Alirio said...

ralph- said...

====

You, sir, are a word-smith...

I think 100 deviled eggs will probably keep you on the can for a day, maybe two...

What about 100 Cadbury Creram Eggs or Cadbury Mini Eggs?

No, I don't work for Cadbury, but I wish I did...

Redrabbitblue said...

I was going to look up the down falls of 100 eggs Ralph but did'nt get to it.
I'd say there not so good. As much fun as it would be to see and Drink along with Ben:) I'd rather for you, that it did'nt happen.

Alirio said...

I've got it!

Quale eggs are much smaller than chicken eggs!

Or... you can eat ONE ostrich egg!

Wesh said...

As longs as there are eggs eaten in vast amounts, I'm a happy camper.
You can do it ralph! Make sure to fast for a day or two before the challenge :) That way yourll be both spiritually and physically ready for take off. Or something.

Good luck!

The first season of Jackass has the 50 egg challenge.

Cricketer David Boon's record - consuming 52 cans of beer on a flight from Sydney to London before the 1989 Ashes tour.

Despite insulting Heston earlier I do enjoy his work. Here are my favs:

Touch of Evil
Major Dundee
Planet of the Apes
The Omega Man
The Three Musketeers

Is there ever going to be a new TLI?

Stephanie said...

I heard we will get one today.

Herlihy said...

Whoo! that's nice of them! is it going to be the the sound bite game that you came up with Stepahnie?

Jordan from the 206 said...

Steph's long awaited quiz? That should be good. I got $5 on Aimee, aka The Human Lostpedia. Sorry Kimb.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Scratch that. I'm going to take the points and go with TDot for the upset. No guts, no glory, right?

Herlihy said...

Nah, it's blates Aimee for the win. She geeks up on Lostpedia for every episode, she's well going to know loads more..

Stephanie said...

I hope it turned out ok. There was a weird delay going on.
