First!

All I have to do is post and there's a new thread it's like magic.

Redrabbitblue said...

But it Hurts! I don't feel any orbs between my legs!

[ally] said...

seriously, what is going on in england?? we haven't heard from jellyman in a while, is he ok? i hope the footpocalypse doesn't cross the pond or we'll all be in big trouble.

[ally] said...

update on the pole dancing outfit: i think i found something i can work with that's comfortable yet dressy-ish.

my friend sent me a text this morning warning me not to wear any lotion or i'd be flying off the pole. i'd really hate to come out injured from this experience. lol.

memphish said...

ARG update. The Dharma Wants You website has been "hacked" presumably by Ruckus Guy/Dan Bronson. After you log in and it says "Volunteer Assessment Coming Soon" let it sit for a minute or so and you'll see it. If you want to know what the message boils down to check out DarkUFO's OGR page. I won't spoil you here in case you want to decompile flash code for yourself.

memphish said...

I've got $50 to spend at Amazon. Suggestions?

Holli

[ally] said...

there are so many things i want from Amazon that i wouldn't even know what to do with $50.

maybe some tv shows on dvd. 30 rock, arrested development...

Herlihy said...

My car has just been shown on tv during an interview plugging the tv show that's regenerating my home town. i feel vaguely famous.

PalmerEldritch said...

"memphish said...

bacon wrapped steak.

MB said...

Ally - "footpocalypse" - LMAO - good one.

and re: Bacon Wrapped Steak... .....holy......holy s**t.....I need that :))))) Time to google where I can get that (stomach growling)

MB said...

wait....DOH! I didn't see the prices!

memphish said...

Boy you guys had boring suggestions. I ordered 4 books. Yeah, boring.

One I'll end up reading in about 1 day. It's total chick lit, but I want to know what happens and they don't have it at the library, so I'll donate it when I'm through. And I got some more Stephen King in my quest for the Dark Tower too.

Holli

Herlihy said...

Mb - Could you not just buy a steak........and wrap it bacon?

PalmerEldritch said...

No. He can only buy it online because he's a vegetarian.


...


what?

MB said...

...and KABLAMMO

Herlihy - of course...if I wasn't LAZY!!!! Food always tastes better when someone else has prepared it....well, usually.

MB said...

lol Palmer (forgot to say)

[ally] said...

it was actually palmer who came up with footpocalypse on the last thread, so i'll forward the kudos to him.

i think they sell those bacon wrapped steaks at the supermarket for way cheaper than that, mb.

t-dot kim said...

So Ally, what did you decide on wearing? I had a couple of friends do that for a bachelorette party, they were told to wear shorts, but the girls that wore leggings/yoga pants had the best time.

I do have some new LOST news--but it's kinda spoilery. MB, I'm going to e-mail you with it. You can tell me if it's ok to post it here. I'll head over to the SPLOG and post there.

t-dot kim said...

Forget it MB, Herlihy already posted my LOST news on the SLPOG. :(

Herlihy said...

i posted something on the splog today... something about new characters...

anyways, bacon wrapped steaks sound cholesterol-tastic. :/

Herlihy said...

WHOO! Go me!

Herlihy said...

Sorry kim, i didn't want to steal your thunder....

although technically you were trying to steal my hinder as i posted that ages ago. tut tut. i would have thought better of you! ;)

PalmerEldritch said...

"although technically you were trying to steal my hinder"

that's what she said?





be careful of friction, ally. you don't want your night on the pole to result in an uncomfortable rash.

t-dot kim said...

LOL...I stay away from spoliers so when I read that news I was like, "Gotta tell the blogspot".

Meanwhile, I'm over a week late--oh well :(

[ally] said...

"be careful of friction, ally. you don't want your night on the pole to result in an uncomfortable rash."

that's what she said!

PalmerEldritch said...

there was much debate on whether i should have split that post up to present you with two opportunities to TWSS it...

[ally] said...

now i'm tempted to go read these week-old news. i wanna stay away from spoilers, but i wanna know what's causing all the commotion.

memphish said...

Check out this wig from Curb Your Enthusiasm. It's LOST worthy.

Holli

[ally] said...

as for my outfit(s). i came up with 2 options, since i was told i needed something workout-ish for the warm up but then something dressy/sexy for the actual class, but yet still needed to maintain the color that was suggested.

option 1: black shorts, hot pink tank top. with black and pink striped knee hi socks.

option 2: hot pink skirt with black boy shorts underneath and a black tank top, with the black and pink socks.

i'm planning to wear my black converse sneakers, unless i'm told i need to wear heels in which case i'm bringing them. i'm also contemplating as to weather i should wear these black arm warmers i have, since i don't know how that'll conflict with the pole.

memphish said...

Brilliant!

Holli

t-dot kim said...

You'll probably be barefoot. (You are a beginner afterall) I like the idea of the 2nd outfit. I HATE pink--so there seems to be less of it in that outfit.

...Ally, also a reminder--we need pictures of this adventure. :P

t-dot kim said...

Holli, LOL!!!
That's sooo funny. I bet it hurt.

[ally] said...

yeah, that's the reason i like the second outfit better than the first, the pink isn't as overpowering. i'm not a pink girl either, so i'm more than happy to be mixing it with some black.

i'll see what i can do picture-wise. i'll probably take some pictures of the silly outfits but not of the actual adventure. lol.

memphish said...

Come on Ally. Aren't they videoing the event? Can't we all pre-order a copy? :-)

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

So, You Think You Can (Pole)Dance?

Mr. Bill said...

TWHS

Haaaa

Crickets....

MB said...

THANK YOU HERLIHY and KIM (for posting the spoilery news at the SPLOG!! )

For gods sake I'm glad SOMEONE's posting at the SPLOG seeing as I've been such a lame-ass!

PalmerEldritch said...

hey, don't be so down about your lack of posting on the splog, mb.

maybe you need some cheering up?

Herlihy said...

MB - don't worry about it. I saw it on the site i regularly perouse and i thought that you might have posted something a bit more in depth on the splog, but you hadn't so i thought i'd save you the trouble.

No point in working yourself up for not posting much seeing as it is the off season... there's barely anything going on lost-wise.

Trevor McFur said...

'Sup blogspot?

Holli, I hope that you can return those books, because I would suggest spreading the money around a bit with...

A bag of chocolate dipped pork rinds (sugar free!) -- 12.95

Uranium ore -- 29.95

Faux Crystal Cross-Shaped Nipple Ring -- 8.99

Alvin & The Chipmunks 'How We Roll' Music Video -- FREE!!!!

Grand total (pre-shipping): $51.89 :)


And I know I'm late to the TWSSathon that's come from Ally's pole dancing, but...

my friend sent me a text this morning warning me not to wear any lotion or i'd be flying off the pole.

TWSS!

Alirio said...

Jermaine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

JERMAINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Le Jermaine!!!

PalmerEldritch said...

Jemaine.

No, really. No R. He's tricky, that one.

Jemaine Clement

and since i'm in a conchordy mood: jenny

good stuff. but 7 minutes or so.

worth it though. :)

/"what a hilarious misunderstanding!"

MB said...

(cue the Elton John/Dionne Warwick/Stevie Wonder/Gladys Knight version of That's What Friends are For)

....thanks for the support guys!

Palmer - Lmao @Conchords. I was literally just thinking about renting it or buying it for the iPod.
And it reminded me of Scrubs

Ralph- said...

if any of you are interested i have an all new blog that will track my progress on The Cricket.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with The Cricket, well, i would love for you to check it out and share some thoughts.

PalmerEldritch said...

consider me interested, ralph-.

anyone looking for the blog and too lazy to look through ralph-'s profile for the link, can click here.

p.s. check out ralph-'s "about me" section on that blog. hehehehehheh.

MB said...

HOLY CRAP!

iTunes is selling Classic Doctor Who episodes!!! It looks like it's mostly Pertwee stories + The Krotons w/Troughton. God Dayum - sweet!

Now I'm just waiting for some Tom Baker - kinda surprised they didn't offer him up right away

Ralph- said...

Thanks Palmer. I was too lazy to post it. i have been working on the look of the blog for a while now. i need to go to bed and get some sleep. long day at work tomorrow.

MB said...

Ralph - I'm DEFINITELY checking out the new blog - thanks!

Stephanie said...

I hope this makes you as happy as it made me.

Brett is so much cuter with the beard.

Ralph- said...

I wish i could say the same to you MB. I really wish i could listen to your segments and read your blog, because i found your Karaoke very entertaining. I am just spoiler free...with the exception of knowing that further instructions was a flash forward the whole time!

andrew. said...

- that Office teaser was fun, better than the webisodes & 1/10th as long. I love how different the US version is from the UK version at this point, even though they still borrow plot lines (like Michael Scott's date with Pam's landlady)

- The Cricket is looking good ralph. I like the subdued coloring a lot.

- i'm at work for the second saturday in a row. August sucks because everyone else gets to take a vacation.

- Kim, Steelers are rolling your way with a (pre-season) win under their belt, but they already lost their back-up quarterback!

- am i missing something or did absolutely nothing come of the new Lost ARG e-mail? I hope there's some kind of follow-up on Monday.

- Miles Strom showed up in my Oz marathon last night. No spoilers, but even though he's a more earnest character, either his roles on LOST & The Sopranos have colored my impression of him, or there's something about the actor's face, but there's an undertone of asshole.

Ralph- said...

oh my god. i was just looking at some of the Convention Pictures and remembered something awesome that happened.

Hey Palmer and Alirio, were you there when we took over that table to record and totally forced that dude to leave that was sitting there? HA HAAAaaaa....we totally rubbed that dude out! (twss)

He was just sitting there at a mess of a table, me and ryan or palmer? went over there and just started to clean up the table. then the table was starting to get surounded with yellow shirts until the dude just got up and left.

That has to be the greatest moment in the history of The DharmalArmy! That poor sap got FLANKED!

Alirio said...

I wasn't there. I was waiting for Bruce Campbell at the time. Sounds superb!

Herlihy said...

I've just finished watching BSG: Razor. it's around 3am. all the lights are off in my house and i decide to get a drink. i leave kitchen light off because, well, there's no need to have it on.

i'm stood at the sink drinking my drink, i look over and i see a red light. it freaks me out. i thought it was a centurion for split second. dear me.

It was only the light for the gas thingy. this is why people shouldn't watch the entirity of BSG within a two week period. It makes you go crazy. :(

In other news, i want to see new bsg stuff. I wish there was more like.

/late night ramble.

PalmerEldritch said...

ralph, that was awesome. i totally thought you knew him or something. cuz a couple of us were sitting with him and then a huge swarm of people converged and surrounded him. and he didnt leave for while. i went to get extra chairs and stuff. and then once we found a place to sit, he got up and left.

we were all like "does anyone know this guy or did we just take over his table?" awesome. the dharmalarmy at is finest. hostile takeover!



soul caliber iv with VADER. good stuff. glad my friend bought it instead of me. but it was still cool to play as Vader for an hour or so. force choking is fun.

MB said...

Ralph - stay pure - stay spoiler-free :)

although i think i can say with veritable certainty that, at this point, you can listen to all of the season 4 spoiler-casts and not get spoiled for season 5 - lol

(and how unbelievably uninteresting would that be....)

MB said...

oh - and THANK YOU for the Kareoke compliment (though in good conscience I can't really take credit for giving Mac the ability to sing - that was someone else's brilliant brainchild and labor)

Jordan from the 206 said...

Wow, I swear the blogspot talks to us the same way the island does in Lost. Haven't checked the 'spot in a while. Saw Chris' post about the Orangina animals. All last week I was in France laughing and taking pictures of the extremely odd Orangina posters around. "Check out the rack on that dolphin." Hilarious stuff. I will post pics when I get the chance. Later y'all.

Trevor McFur said...

Going to see The Dark Knight today, for the 2nd time, but not on IMAX this time. I'm curious to see if it's just as amazing the 2nd time, and I'm also curious to see the difference between IMAX/standard digital.

Chris JC said...

Are there Look Around You fans about? Fans of series 2? the half hour episodes?

Good - check out The Timewaster Phone Calls by Robin Cooper, AKA Robert Popper, AKA Jack Morgan.

http://www.robincooper.co.uk/audio.php

Also available: two Timewaster Letters books, The Timewaster Diaries and a foreword to the excellent Confessions of a Chatroom Freak by Mr. Biffo (good luck importing that one).

Herlihy said...

Season 2 is an abomination on the name of Look Around You.

Herlihy said...

Also, Mr. Biffo?

The guy who ran digitiser?

PalmerEldritch said...

Rest in peace, Mr. Hayes. :(

Stephanie said...

I have a new Lost theory. Daniel Faraday is Charlotte's father.

Chris JC said...

Ike! No!


... yes :(


Oh, and yes - that self same Mr Biffo.

Ralph- said...

I LOVE both Series of Look Around Yog!!!!!

I think that they work great on different levels! they are both brilliant in their own way.

I love that Pete thanks all of the Ants individually by name, but never says "Thants". Fucking Brilliant!!

i know i am not british, but i do not think that Look Around You series 2 is an abomination of the name!

Sure it is different, but it would have been boring to do more of the same.

LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PalmerEldritch said...

kablamo!!!

/yeah... had nothing intelligent to post

Chris JC said...

I was initially disappointed with Look Around You 2, but was happy they'd been bold enough to do something else (on the commentary they sound a bit disappointed with the whole thing, except for the live final and the still-impressive bit of work putting in HRH Sir Prince Charles.

The thing with series 1 is that it is such an amazing dead-on impersonation of BBC education programmes of the late 1970s (which were used for many years afterwards) that a lot of that is a joke in itself - when we see the countdown clock and hear acoustic guitar music, believe me it's a big laugh.

LAY2 is less gentle and has some broader jokes, but over time I have come to like both.

Did I ever send you a copy, Ralph? No - I think I sent them to MB along with some ther TV joy.

Immenstrides!

memphish said...

I had no idea this is what George Lazenby has been up to.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

so, he married a tennis star and recently got served?

/ugh

PalmerEldritch said...

Who says romance is dead?

memphish said...

So the groom is so ugly he has to hide under a mask? And the bride is confident enough to let another chick dress as slave Leia.

In more blogspot foot news, I've done something to my left ankle and am hobbling around the house in pain.

Holli

andrew. said...

- ahhhh, the footening continues!

- Amazon has a sale on The Wire today. 60% off on the season DVD boxsets.

Redrabbitblue said...

Men play field Hockey in Spain and ? Cant remember the other country? Really?

[ally] said...

so the pole dancing class pretty much kicked my ass. not on the day of, but yesterday and today. everything is sore, yes... everything!

i'm seriously considering taking up the full course of classes. even though i know it'll be a lot of work, it's really a lot of fun.

things i learned that i didn't know before:

1. how to give a proper lap dance.
2. how to do a pole trick.
3. you don't need to be athletic to do a pole trick.

memphish said...

Ally,

Photos?

Hubby was reading the local Health and Fitness free paper the other day and showed me an ad for a pole class. I told him about your excursion. Then he told me the story of a local woman who was trying to open a studio. It's in a smaller town outside Memphis. They thought she was opening a strip club and tried to shut her down. She finally convinced them it was a legit business then they had to pay to re-install her mirrors under threat of lawsuit.

Holli

[ally] said...

we took a couple of pictures, but unfortunately i had already changed out of my outfit. there are no pictures of us actually doing anything, we took pictures afterwards.

the place where i went is pretty cool, one of their things is having no mirrors so you're not constantly looking at yourself. they want you to just do what you want and not worry about what you look like. i'll post a picture later when i download them.

Stephanie said...

Small bit of Lost news.

Herlihy said...

I've just come back from the hospital... it's not dislocated. but it was... it's now just broken. It's a spiral fracture so it might healin a funny position.

woe for deformed toes.

elias said...

Look Around You 2 is obviously great.

Chris JC said...

I propose that from here on, the mysterious footpocalypse be referred to as:

"The Hoppening"

[ally] said...

i was worried saturday morning that i too had become a victim of The Hoppening, but it turns out my feet, specifically my toes, were just sore from wearing high heels and dancing on benches the night before.

[ally] said...

did anybody watch Pineapple Express this weekend? i saw it yesterday and loved it.

darryl from the office is hilarious!

Mr. Bill said...

Have any of you guys seen Garth Marenghi's Darkplace?
That is a very very funny show!

PalmerEldritch said...

The Hoppening 2: Footpocalypse in America

Holli's been struck down with some sort of leg injury, Ally's toes and feet are sore from pole dancing, and...

the tip of my right big toe has been semi-numb all day!!! what's up with that?!





mr. bill, i saw ten minutes of that show and it looked like it had potential to be really funny or go down in flames. i meant to check it out but was, apparently, too lazy. either that or was distracted by something shiny.


p.s. get better Hoppening victims!

Stephanie said...

I believe arthritis is setting up in my ankles 'cause I'm old.

memphish said...

Oh no. The Hoppening strikes again. I'm probably going to the orthopod tomorrow for my ankle. It's gotten worse today.

Holli

Mr. Bill said...

Stephanie Great job editing the podcast. You are right it is tough to do.

Trevor McFur said...

Steph & Alirio, loved the Comic Con reflections panel. It was good to hear how it all went down with the Chin. Pretty cool that you're the only one that he signed anything extra for.

Although I wasn't happy to be the ONLY one excluded (I think) when Steph was listing the book's chain. I got it from Ally, then from me to Ralph. I kind of want it back to look at Bruce's signature.

Head of the Class ... nice!

Herlihy said...

i kind of feel guilty for starting the hoppening. but in other ways, i don't.

anyways. the hoppening 2: footpocalypse is much more derivative and uninspiring compared to the intense and original Hoppening.

Stephanie said...

Trev, I am so sorry you were left out. I have a bad memory.

Trevor McFur said...

It's ok, it was only mock outrage.

t-dot kim said...

Stephanie, Alirio!!! I finally got around to finishing the 3 Heroes podcast! Great work! I was listening and wanted so badly to join you in the conversation with So You Think You Can Dance and the Comic-Con stuff too. I watched every episode of Dance--I really love that show. I'm so glad Joshua won!!! So You Think You Can Dance: Canada starts in the Fall and I can't wait. (Alirio, will you be watching too??)

t-dot kim said...

...oh ya, shame on you for forgetting Trevor McFur!!

Alirio said...

Kim: I'm very excited about SYTYCD:Canada. As long as Bennedict Mulroney has nothing to do with the show I foresee great things.

As for snubbing Trevor, as any good Canadian can, I apologize Trev!

The Hoppening hasn't reached Montreal yet. But we are on the verge of a race-war!

Any Hoppenings in T.O. Kim? Maybe the F'ing HUGE Propane Explosion was a precurser?

Stupid money! Why can't our economy be trivia-based? I'd be so rich!

t-dot kim said...

t-dot kim said...

No, Douchebag Mulroney will not be hosting the show. Sadly, it's someone worse!!! Leah Miller from Much Music will be the host. I can't begin to explain how much I hate that girl...Anyway. Jean-Marc (a choreographer on the US show) will be the "Nigel" of the Cdn version. Blake, the runner-up in season 1 is also a judge. And I've heard a rumour that Mia Michaels will be a special judge/choreographer. If that's true--I will go to a live taping of the show when she's there. She's got the best dances.

As for T.O. News...The propane explosion was pretty bad. It happened in North York which is Northern Toronto. I live in North-East Toronto, so I wasn't effected. I however, did hear the explosions from my house around 3:50am!! It was a very awkward sound. I guess I would describe it as hearing someone fall out of bed onto the floor over and over again. It was a muffled boom, but I was no where near the site. My friend who lives about 8 blocks away thought it was like War of the Worlds--she said the skies were on fire! Tanks were lined up and one-by-one they just caught fire. It was VERY bad Sunday in Toronto. Major highways where shut down and people were evacuated from their homes. About 50 ppl were left homeless :(

I didn't get a chance to fly over the fire in the chopper on Sunday (it wasn't safe, as it became a no-fly zone). Yesterday (Monday) I did fly over it and took some video. It will be on my youtube page as soon as it gets uploaded. **You can hear Aimee and I discuss this in our latest podcast**



shameless plug
(twss?)



ok. I'm done.

Mr. Bill: "Have any of you guys seen Garth Marenghi's Darkplace?
That is a very very funny show!"


I'm Doctor Sanchez... you're a woman!

Mr. Bill said...

Hi, I've come to apply for the doctor's job. I can assure you my credentials are top-notch, I've just graduated from Harvard College Yale. I aced every semester, and I got an 'A'.

Chris JC said...

It's well written to sound like an idiot trying to write dialogue that'll sell overseas.

Also as Dean Learner/Thornton Reed, the series gave me my first look at Richard Ayoade (IT Crowd fans know him as Moss), who is marvellous.

Oh, and Matt Berry, who is beyond classification.

Chris JC said...

Subscribing to your podcast, Mr. Bill. Haven't moved onto a new one in ages.

Mr. Bill said...

Matt Berry's voice is some of the best stuff aside from the special effects {strings on power tools}

...Blood,Blood,Blood...and bits of sick.

Mr. Bill said...

Thanks Chris...It's a work in progress.

Ralph- said...

late night Kablami!

PalmerEldritch said...

'sup, blogspotica?

memphish said...

I'm waiting to see when I can go the doctor about my ankle. To top if off I'm probably going to get to hobble in the rain. Yeah me!

Holli

Stephanie said...

Yeah rain.:(
I will find out more about school today. Hey, I didn't tell the blogspot my good news.
I'm going back to school this Fall!

PalmerEldritch said...

holli, good luck with yer ankle. hope its nothing serious. if it something serious, the blogspot will take you to see Isaac of Uluru. even if he IS half Scarren.

steph, congrats! that's really cool. area of study?

memphish said...

I hope it won't be Isaac of Uluru serious. I'm going at 3:30 local. I also hope there's something they can do other than give me crutches and tell me to alternate heat and ice and eat Motrin.

Holli

memphish said...

So I've got a lot of time to kill.

Mark Spitz whining about someone not paying for him to go see Phelps break his record -- justified or not?

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

who? what?

memphish said...

Spitz story. Even I'm not old enough to remember Spitz winning his medals. I was around, but not exactly interested at that young age.

Holli

Stephanie said...

p, I'm saying computers for now. Who knows where I'll end up. Short term goal- I want to be able to build websites. Long term goal- make loads of cash and work from home.

Chris JC said...

Hey, Herlihy. I see Kevin McCloud has been busy pissing about with your neighbourhood for about six years.

How's that going? Is he making a big hash of it?

memphish said...

This is WRONG!

Holli

Herlihy said...

Chris - Yeah.. Did you watch the doc last night? it was just about the bridge last night... there's like three other shows i think.

It does look different... but more in an unfamiliar way. shops have come and some have gone, some have even moved premises. when i came back from uni it looked well different. the bridge is not that bad to be honest. people do just go round asking if they've been on the bridge... apparently is a massive deal... i don't see it to be honest.

andrew. said...

- HEY! I got left off the Chins book list too! I was the quick turnaround between Ralph & Kim, the one that read it :P

- 1/2 way through season 6 of Oz. It's still a great show & entertaining, but there's obviously not much direction this far in. I think season 3 could have been a good stopping point. Next up for TV on DVD = Jericho

- Dark Knight is still no. 1 at the box office. Considering how crowded this summer has been, I think that's amazing. I think there were a lot of movies this summer that would have been event-films if they'd been rolled out in a quieter season.

- in honor of oz: Tits!

MB said...

WOOT!!! First SMALL bit of solid (I hope) Season 5-specific news over at Der SPLOG


Steph - I Twittered it - but it bears repeating here - very very excellent about you and school! Keep us posted!

RE: updating "Clue"....no....come on people, please!

MB said...

Andrew - I'll be interested to see what you think of Jericho.

[ally] said...

I learned all kinds of new words from Oz that I could never really throw into casual conversation.

MB said...

Thanks for John Norton on Twitter for linking to this -

fairly funny Dark Knight trailer spoof

t-dot kim said...

Hey Andrew...I read the Chins Book

Well, some of it anyway

andrew. said...

- I think I can solve the murder: Kim's good name in the blogspot with the insinuations.

MB said...

Getting Dead-Locke back to the island in Season 5?


(Don't worry - NOT a spoiler! - lol)

PalmerEldritch said...

holli, good luck at the doctor's.

/tip of my toe is still semi-numb

PalmerEldritch said...

dude!! mb, that's fan-f'ing-tastic. although i cant wait for the sequel. nothing like following Locke to the treasure of the island.

memphish said...

Should I ask about that P? And share the plight of those who sit on their asses typing on their computer continuously yet all have mysterious foot ailments?

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

share your conspiracy theory about a foot injury plague descending upon north america having already ravaged the united kingdom.

[ally] said...

all i can say is, watch out canada! sounds like the footpocalypse is coming your way.

memphish said...

Back from the doc. I forgot to ask about the toe P. Sorry.

So the giant vein that runs just west of my left inner ankle has apparently sprung a leak and blood has pooled there between my ankle and the top of my foot causing me pain. Cause of said leak -- unknown and at this point unimportant. Cure for said pain -- one of those oh so attractive lace up ankle braces or if that doesn't make it feel better I can wear my big black boot from the days of when I broke my fibula (and didn't know it for weeks.) Prognosis -- better in 1 week.

So at least for me hopefully The Hoppening will be over in a week.

Holli

Chris JC said...

Your foot could be the basis for the poster for The Hoppening - it;s an appropriate image, and yet a black boot and a laced brace could bring in the fetish crowd.

[ally] said...

i hope you feel better soon, holli. that really sucks.

memphish said...

Thanks Ally. And thanks for the marketing concept Chris.

quote of the day

Get well soon, Holli.

MB said...

Holli - I sincerely hope your foot is relatively pain free from now on. Good thoughts to you :)

(Damn feet - you use them as directed and this is what they do)

memphish said...

Thanks for the well wishes MB and Elias. And for that great video Elias. Still hurts, but I'm trying red wine as a new medicating technique as I wait for Phelps to swim again.

I forgot to tell y'all, my x-ray tech/brace tech looked a lot like Wash from Firefly. If he'd looked like Mal, I'd still be there.

Herlihy said...

some random high heeled girl stood on my broken toe tonight.

It proper hurts. why won't the hoppening leave me alone?

Stephanie said...

Jorge sings!

Holli, sorry about your injury.

PalmerEldritch said...

somebody is going crazy with that cowbell.

MB said...

OUCH - sorry Herlihy!

PalmerEldritch said...

- Palmer - i love that commercial! There's no way that could have ever aired, right?

- A rap video about & filmed inside of the Large Hadron Collider

Normally i hate these awkward-white-people rap parodies, but the fact that this video was filmed inside of the machine that could potentially end existence as we know it really makes this something special.

hope we dont all die when they turn that thing on.

i'm working on a job right now, the name of the company...

Hung Long Garment

i'm too immature not to share it.

PalmerEldritch said...

I wonder if Hung Long garments are ever worn by Humin Wang?

[ally] said...

here's a couple of pictures from that pole dancing class.

group shot.

my friend who is clearly more talented than me.

andrew. said...

Razzle Dazzle!

MB said...

Re: pole dancing - wow. your friend must be able to crush things with her thighs. That looks gravity-defyingly difficult - lol!

[ally] said...

that's what everybody else was saying that she must have some thighs of steel.

[ally] said...

i just heard that the hoppening has migrated to canada!

Alirio said...

It's true! I have suffered a bad-ass toe-stubbing of the nth degree. My right pinky hurts like mad. It actually started yesterday when I noticed my left knee was sore after a morning jog.

That must have awoken the Hoppening and sent forth forces I was powerless to defend.

[ally] said...

and apparently it's not over in the UK either. sheesh! when will it end??

Herlihy said...

It's quite bizarre that all these foot related instances have happened so recently.

Trevor McFur said...

My feet are fine (my wife just snorted in derision). Although, I used to get horrendous ingrown toenails in college, to the point where the nails would have to be surgically removed.

Patient Zero of The Hoppening?

Jordan from the 206 said...

You guys don't know jack about feet probs. I've been wearing flip-flops the past 2+ months and because of it have terrible calluses that are starting to crack and sting like hell when I walk. Also, a month ago or so, I was bit by some super mosquito and my ankle swelled up to about twice it's normal size, and stayed that way for about 4 days. And most of all, my feet are just really dirty.

Steph and Alirio, I look forward to listening to your podcast when I return. Sounds very interesting!

Tits!

Herlihy said...

"And most of all, my feet are just really dirty"

You know, we do have showers in Europe...

Stephanie said...

OMG! I had my toe nails surgically removed when I was young. Hurt like a son of a bitch. I mean, having my toe nails removed was the most painful thing I have ever been through. Even more painful than childbirth. And to top it off, my toe nails are even more ingrown afterward.

Anonymous said...

Are you dorks still doing the First! thing? How long until that shit has to end?

PalmerEldritch said...

part of the fun of first posting is that you're actually commenting on the sheer inanity of first posting.

it's possibly ironic but i'd need to convene a council to make the actual ruling.

anyhow, if first posting annoys you that much, you may want to quit the interwebs now.

PalmerEldritch said...

oh. and will Kim now fall victim to Alirio's reported The Hoppening 3: Footpocalypse in the Frozen North?

Trevor McFur said...

Wait a minute, we're getting chided for being lame dorks by someone who's doing the anonymous drive-by? The only way that's at all acceptable is if he knew how fucking lame that is and meant it to be a commentary on the very lameness he's chiding.

Having the toenails removed wasn't itself painful ... you know, anesthetic and all. But an hour later or so ... wow, mega pain. And my procedure didn't work, either, the nails grew back and were ingrown again. For whatever reason, they just spontaneously stopped becoming ingrown about two or three years after they started. I live in fear that someday they'll return because that was some severe pain.

Mr. Bill said...

With all the toenail removal talk the new movie name should be...

Footpocalypse Nail...

Crickets...

;)

Mr. Bill said...

Footpocalypse Nail: The Quickening

HAAA

Alirio said...

The Quickening, I like!

Footcopolypse update: my right pinky toe is red, purple and a little swollen. It survived a nice jog tonight. My left knee however is not happy I went jogging at all. .

Could be worse. Could be raining.

PalmerEldritch said...

could have ebola.

Mr. Bill said...

There can be only 10!

I think I "nailed it" with The Quickening.

Chris JC said...

Ally - nice pics. I especially like you providing the hands-on-hips sassy attitude.

I too experienced ingrown toenail removal in my youth. First examined in a hospital that had closed down except for one room, then had them done in some kind of clinic not far from my old house that I have never been able to find since. Our National Health Service is weird.

Also, the local anaesthetic didn't really take properly - that was, indeed, agony.

memphish said...

Good news on the Hoppening front. My part of Footpocalypse '08 is improving. I'd rate my foot at 75%. Still I'm hoping (hopping?) to make Hubby cut the grass instead of me this week.

Holli

Chris JC said...

"I'm hoping (hopping?) to make Hubby cut the grass instead of me this week."

Are you saying your husband usually cuts YOU?

You shouldn't have to put up with that.

PalmerEldritch said...

my toe is improving!

went to my chiropractor (yay for benefits) and described my symptoms. he had me stretch my upper leg a bunch. now, my toe is still a teensy bit weird but a lot better.

hopefully, it'll be fine in a day or so. not that it was a horrible ailment. just a weird feeling for the tip of yer toe to be semi-numb for a few days.

PalmerEldritch said...

"Are you saying your husband usually cuts YOU?

You shouldn't have to put up with that."

why so serious?



/wokka
//wokka

memphish said...

That's kind of a personal question, Chris. I'll settle for him cutting the grass. Me, that's still up for grabs.

Holli

Stephanie said...

My feet along with my lower extremities are healthy today!

memphish said...

Don't tempt fate Stephanie.

Holli

Chris JC said...

We shouldn't discuss our lower extremities in public.

PalmerEldritch said...

are we back to talking about Hung Long Garments?

[ally] said...

"are we back to talking about Hung Long Garments?"

we've come full circle.


glad to hear everyone is doing better. i hope jordan's stinky feet are doing ok too.

PalmerEldritch said...

holy crap. i'm bored.

[ally] said...

i just conned my boss into me working a half day the day before labor day weekend.

he's already taking the day off and the rule is only one person can be out at a time. so i asked if it was ok for me to take the day off and he said he was already taking it, so then i'm like, alright well i guess i'll just a half day then. he's like ok... wait... what?

memphish said...

I hope someone is getting ready to keep Rock Riddle from getting angry.

Holli

/also bored

[ally] said...

I don't know if any of you have see these, but they're hilarious.

Boobs.

MORE SEASON 5 STUFF ON the SPLOG

t-dot kim said...

I think my foot hurts.

Most likely because I'm a hypochondriac.

My left foot does feel a little funny--and this was well before all this feet talk on the blog.

MB said...

I imagine most people have seen this already, but for anyone behind the curve like me:

4 min. interview w/Matthew Fox at Comic Con

(contains very general Season 5 character speculation but no spoilers)

MB said...

NO KIM.......NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!


;)

PalmerEldritch said...

helicopteress kim, no one can hide from the Hoppening. not even in the air!

[ally] said...

i just got back from lunch only to find that the front door of the building is locked. to top it off, there was no one anywhere near the door so no one could open it for me, i tried my key card and it didn't work!

i ended up having to walk all around the building to the back door. and it's hot as all hell outside! i'm now sweating and still haven't figured out the mystery of the front door.

t-dot kim said...

Weird, Ally. Weird.

Some good news: the cast for Cycle 11 of America's Next Top Model was announced today. (There's a tranny in the mix!!! WTF)

[ally] said...

late on the news again, canada.

i saw that yesterday. is it weird that the tranny looks more girly than some of the other girls? i guess they couldn't have a token "fat" girl so they decided to have a dude?
