Woohoo!

memphish said...

Are they going to get the game in Trevor?

Holli

Trevor McFur said...

As far as I know. It's pretty cold, and a little windy, but there's very little rain right now.

I'm more optimistic today than I was yesterday, but nowhere near as optimistic as I was going into the game Monday. Don't know how I'm gonna handle it if they blow it tonight. Urgh. Go Phils!

Jon from NKY said...

Snow. Pretty soon the season will end in December.

Scott and Steve said...

DAMN! I spaced the game tonight - I should have made this thread posting about THAT. oops. sorry!

Anyway - partially at Holli's request i have this to say -

AAAHH! Pushing Daisies is in trouble?!? http://tinyurl.com/577ebh

COME ON PEOPLE! Watch this show - it is awesome! (I don't care if the first few eps. have been lackluster - this show MUST NOT GO AWAY!)

MB said...

Oops - that was me. Forgot to log out and back in as me :)

Chris JC said...

Nice work, MB.

And now you've revealed that it was you who did the thread, meaning my detective work is no longer impressive.

Big Doctor Who news out there for those who care.

andrew. said...

i'm watching Pushing Daisies right now. I'm hoping its going to get a bump since it's the only alternative to Obama's media buy.

Trevor McFur said...

I'm kinda wondering how long the Obamercial is gonna go on for. First pitch is supposed to be at 8:35, it's 25 after, and they're still putting a little message at the bottom of the screen that says, 'Live Obama Event Later'.

I like Obama, but I will not be happy if his Obamercial cuts into the Series. And PA is a swing state.

Trevor McFur said...

Whew! Over just in time!

t-dot kim said...

3 outs to go, Trevor!

Trevor McFur said...

Holy Christ I think I'm gonna puck.

Trevor McFur said...

I mean puke.

I'm a frakkin' wreck here.

KABLAMO!!!

yeah, i got nothing. world series still on?

/sucker for a countdown

t-dot kim said...

Yay!

Jordan from the 206 said...

Congrat Trevor.

I'm still jealous.

Alirio said...

A new thread? and nobody told me???

Well I never!

Congrats Trevor!

Trevor McFur said...

WWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PalmerEldritch said...

congrats, mister mcfur!

now, i have my television programming back! ;)

but, yeah, congrats on your team winning and all that. take tomorrow off!

Mr. Bill said...

I don't want to take a political turn here but I can't believe all the bigoted email I'm receiving about Obama!

I'm really sad about the state of things in the world. The fact that people are trying to influence votes based on middle names,race,and false rumors through forewarded emails is so ridiculous.

It is really easy to look up these things and find out the reality of it all.

Mr. Bill said...

I don't think I mentioned that I can keep a rhythm with no metronome.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Yeah, this election has really opened my eyes to just how hateful and flat out ignorant so many people in this country are. Hidden away in southern British Columbia, it can be easy to ignore this portion of the country. But I've seen some stuff on Youtube and the Daily Show over the past few months that makes me afraid to travel to certain parts of the country. I still cannot believe how far this whole Muslim thing has gone. I can't believe how many people are that stupid/closed minded/hateful/willingly ignorant. If I ever run for political office, my whole campaign is going to be based on calling the other guy a space alien. Who hates freedom and thinks apple pie is for fags.

Who said the election wasn't a good thing? What else could've possibly brought the Wassup Guys out of retirement?!

Stephanie said...

I get those emails too, Mr Bill. Also, I was in a conversation at work the other day that started off with "So they're saying He is going to win the election?" Just the tone they used when referring to Obama was disturbing. Then the reply was "My momma thinks Obama's the anti-christ." My reply was "A lot of folks think George Bush is the anti-christ". Then everyone dropped their heads. I won.

Jon from NKY said...

By the way,,, congrats Trevor. I remember when the Reds won in '90. It's an awesome time.

memphish said...

Yeah Phillies!

I'm so psyched for The Office and 30 Rock tonight. I've avoided the 30 Rock preview so that I'd have something to watch tonight. Liz Lemon!

Holli

Stephanie said...

I'm feeling negatively toward 30 Rock since it won so many Emmy's. I guess I'm bitter over the whole "FNL vs 30 Rock and NBC chose 30 Rock" situation.

Herlihy said...

So.

My haircut went well.

It's all asymmetrical. it's like well short. I was being cut by a trainee as well... which meant that she was well pleased with the result. even though it took over an hour to do.

I went out last night too and everybody loved it. Someone said that it was "very Human League". Which was well nice. :D

memphish said...

Video game cakes

Holli

Chris JC said...

It IS very Human League. Apparently the Sheffield of 1983 is the modern age.

I'm kidding. Enjoy your hair, dude.

Chris JC said...

Good cake post, Holli. The Atari VCS cake is the best one, although the Dance Dance Revolution, DS with Animal Crossing and Hylian Shield cake are plenty superb, too.

Herlihy said...

Didn't you know that 80's is well cool?

Chris JC said...

The unemployment, the squalor, the race riots, Thatch.

So very cool.

Herlihy said...

...well. If you're going to just focus on those things!

Other than those things... it's well amazing. Even the Stock Aitken & Waterman stuff.

Chris JC said...

I'll stop being a misery for a second and agree with you - the fashion and music that we as a nation produced at the time were stunning, there's no other word for it, I'm a big fan of the aesthetic of the period, however it was a total construction to promote escape from what was, particularly in the first half, a horrible decade in modern times. Grimy, brutal and miserable.

So Martin Fry but on his big gold suit and started singing Poison Arrow not because he was playing in big casino type nightspots, but to make the pissholes he was playing in FEEL big and glamorous.

It worked, of course, because the escapism is now all that people remember about the Britain of the 1980s, which is probably a good thing overall.

PalmerEldritch said...

my girlfriend sent me a link to a picture so fantastically awesome that i thought i'd better share it with you here (especially Wesh if he stops by).

Domokun costume.

Drake said...

Thats awesome. hold on to that woman, she's got some good stuff.

Drake said...

i just realized that the last comment made me sound like a huge creep.....

PalmerEldritch said...

"hold on to that woman, she's got some good stuff."

that's what she said.


KABLAMo!!

MB said...

Fell asleep w/out knowing who won last night so CONGRATS TREVOR (and all of Philadelphia)! Been a long time coming!


And DO NOT get me started on politics - particularly the falsehoods which have been bandied about. You can even forget about all the Muslim/terrorist bull and still it is amazing the crap that people who say they are informed claim is true.

I will not rant I will not rant...

Chris JC said...

RANT!

PalmerEldritch said...

speaking of rants...

when the fuck does the LOST drought end?! anything new in the ARG? anything remotely interesting in the ARG at all?

blargh!!!

andrew. said...

- the LOST ARG has become so bad that it's kind of funny. People were complaining about the slow, boring pace of the thing and then we all got e-mails at the end of September that basically said "see you in December."

- it's been fun living in "western Pennsylvania" and having the entire region serve as the symbol of racism. We've got idiots here for sure, but it's really not worse than a lot of other places i've been. Let's all do the timewarp to next wednesday, get this election thing out of the way, it's messing up my Halloween!

PalmerEldritch said...

i can't believe that Chuck Norris won as a write-in candidate.

i guess we were all impressed when he fought off that alien invasion on monday.

/from the future, next Wednesday A.D.

[ally] said...

nice haircut, H. that wouldn't work on just anybody, it really works on you.


is this the first time i've heard palmer say "my girlfriend" and not "the girlfriend"?

steph, i feel the same about 30 rock. i'm not sure if i'm liking tina fey as much now that everybody knows who she is. <--- how selfish!


i'm at work bored, waiting on people to give me work, i know there's work to do, but they just won't hand it over! i'm debating whether i should just take a lunch just to do something.

Stephanie said...

Bunny from The Wire is going to be on Supernatural this week!

memphish said...

The Lost ARG sucks ass. Makes Heroes look good. Oh snap! Actually I dropped out on both the ARG and Heroes so I can't really compare. They've both ended the same for me at least.

Glad that the South can share the racist wealth around this election cycle.

Early voting ended here yesterday. 2 hour plus lines I hear. Hubby failed to early vote, so he's going for the 7 am poll opening time on Tuesday. I voted early so that I can meet Steph for lunch in B'ham that day. Then I'm heading to the beach and planning to watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta instead of election results. That and the 8 hours of BSG I haven't watched yet. Got 'em on DVD now.

And yes, if I had a time machine now would be the time to use it. At least I'm not in a swing state or a state with a contested Senate race. The only ugly ads we're really getting is for some state rep race that's not my district and some of the highly contested Mississippi Senate race. Living at the conjunction of 3 states can suck during election time.

Holli

Stephanie said...

Holli, I'm a Real Housewife of Sayre Camp.

Stephanie said...

Vote!

MB said...

Great video Steph!

Jordan from the 206 said...

"Bunny from The Wire is going to be on Supernatural this week!"

Hahaha. Nice try.

Mr. Bill said...

Since I've seen this video, when someone says Oh snap I always think of the we went to the farm skit. It's about 3.25 into the video.

Stephanie said...

Murderlicious.

Mr. Bill said...

Oh Snap!

Jordan from the 206 said...

What's up with the 30 Rock hate? IMHO, 30 Rock is currently 100 times funnier than The Office, which I feel has become very stale. I'm very excited for 30 Rock's return tonight.

I mentioned it on the forum a couple weeks back. But if you have HBO or other means, check out "The Life & Times of Tim". It is hilarious. It's a cartoon. So if you're one of those anti-animation elitists, you might not enjoy it. But it is one of the funnier shows on tv currently IMO.

PalmerEldritch said...

all this "oh snappage" reminds me that Earl is on tonight. bad ass.

[ally] said...

well jordan, if it helps, i don't care much for the office these days either.

memphish said...

I'm actually loving Holly Flax. Okay I'm biased because her name is Holly and she's not sleeping with Hugh Heffner, but still I think they're a cute couple. But it seems to me only about 1/2 of each Office episode is really working. Earl is hit or miss. The more Joy the better if you ask me. Oh snap!

Holli

MB said...

I'm with you Holli - Holli Flax is the best part of the show right now - although I laughed pretty hard at Jan & the baby shower episode. Overall the Office hasn't gone around the bend for me yet - I still get laughs out of it.

I also agree that 30 Rock is the better program though.

Mr. Bill said...

Kitchen nightmares tonight!
I like Chef Ramsay.

andrew. said...

- bad news, can't go to the free jazz concert because i just got a rush design job. good news, i can watch the TeeVee while i work. better news, i'm going to take a nap 1st.

- while i've been mixed on The Office this season (agree with all of the love for Amy Ryan though), i have to insist that you hold your praise for 30 Rock until it starts its season (although i guess some of you could have watched the 1st episode on the interwebs). I'm looking forward to Always Sunny the most anyway.

- Apparently Pushing Daisies has a couple of weeks of hiatus before the next episode. Between this and Terminator: SCC, the networks sure know how to kill a show's momentum dead. 'Hey, you checked out our little show instead of the Obama infomercial? Like what you saw? Well, cool your jets, we don't have any sweeps episodes."

Chris JC said...

Does Ramsey make Americans call him "Chef Ramsey"?

The big ponce. We just know him as Gordon.

[ally] said...

yes he does.

Stephanie said...

Another thing that makes me not care about seeing the 30 Rock premiere- Oprah along with all the other stunt casting coming up this season.

The Office was very lol tonight. Sad to see... oops spoiler.

Supernatural was bad-ass. That Wisdom guy lived up to the hype.

Mr. Bill said...

Oh Snap!

Mr. Bill said...

I love that I have a new catch phrase.

I haven't watched tonights "The Orifice" (LOL) but I hope it is good I DVR'D it.

Stephanie said...

I loved the podcast, Mr Bill. Satan scared the bejeezus out of me. You've got to tell me how you did that effect.

Mr. Bill said...

Thanks Steph, we had a good time doing it.

I have one of these but I think it can be done in some editing programs look for pitch shift. This machine allows you to do it live it is a really fun toy.

It even has a robot button.

Mr. Bill said...

Sorry one of these

Anonymous said...

MB, check your e-mail

Chris JC said...

Mr. Bill - I have long coveted such a voice changer box. I can affect my voice in various ways using software, but not really in real time.

Must be a godsend for crank calling.

Y'know... if you wanted to.

Herlihy said...

WHAT?

King Of The Hill is not being renewed for a 14th season. This is most upsetting as it is genuinely one of the more interesting animated comedies. It doesn't rely on stupid gimmicks and could quite blatantly be real.

This is very upsetting.

memphish said...

Happy Halloween!

Blogspot poll:

1. Favorite Halloween Candy?
2. Dressing up y/n?
3. If Y as what?

Answers for me:

1. Snickers
2. Probably not
3. But if yes, as something lame like a Jim 3-hole punch or Dave.

Holli

memphish said...

2nd poll -- should I go see Zack and Miri this afternoon?

Holli

Stephanie said...

Reese's Cup
I don't care to be bothered this year.

Yes, see Zack and Miri.
I will be seeing The Changeling some how, some way. Soon.

memphish said...

I want to see the Changeling too, but it doesn't work into my afternoon schedule with a 2 1/2 hour runtime.

Holli

Herlihy said...

I might go see the Changeling, only due to the fact that i'm studying the book on one of my courses in a couple of weeks.. so... it would help in understanding it. haha

PalmerEldritch said...

1st poll
1. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
2. Yes
3. Doctor Gregory House

2nd poll
No.


i enjoyed those polls... that's what she said!!!

Chris JC said...

If I can get my humongous podcast finished and uploaded then I'm off to Quantum of Solace. Amazingly we're getting it before the US.

memphish said...

Braggart!

My Name is Bruce trailer.

Holli

Chris JC said...

I can downplay it if you want?

If I get a minute spare, and the bus isn't late I might get the opportunity to see a probably out of focus 110 minute Sony advert.

PalmerEldritch said...

and it'll be expensive, chris. don't forget that!

PalmerEldritch said...

and one of the bond girls keeps talking about how she was born with extra fingers.

Chris JC said...

How much WILL it be?

If I get there before 5pm GMT it'll cost £7.80, or £9.90 after.

Reuters say this is $12.64 and $16.04

Hmm - the pound's going down while the dollar goes up a little.

Chris JC said...

WE ARE UNDER ATTACK.

Stephanie said...

I understand, Holli. I can only go to movies that start around noon. If the theater was closer, it be easier. But I live in the boondocks.

Ralph- said...


LITERALLY
the 80's

memphish said...

I love that video Ralph.

Holli

Mr. Bill said...

Happy Halloween! Here is a little video I made a few years ago.

Mickey Mouse Rocks!!!

PalmerEldritch said...

ralph-, that video is fantasti-great. good find.




happy halloween, you crazy blogspotters!

Dharmalars Special? Anyone?

PalmerEldritch said...

oh, they're "special" alright.


...



i keed, i keed.

did chris ever record a review of the season 4 Blu-Rays?

Jordan from the 206 said...

So most popular Halloween costumes this year? Any guesses? I'm going with Heath Ledger Joker for guys and Sarah Palin for girls. I could prob also see a few dude Palins.

PalmerEldritch said...

pretty sure most people's halloween's will be like last night's "The Office."

i'm hoping at least a few people dress as the Phillie Phanatic.

memphish said...

I've got a costume after all. I have this oinking pig hat (a gift to the kid years ago) and I've put on bright red lipstick, so I'm a pig with lipstick on. Proved 'em wrong.

Holli

Jordan from the 206 said...

Hahaha. When I posted my thing about everybody being the Joker for Halloween, I hadn't yet watched The Office. But now I have. lol.

[ally] said...

trick or treaters are funny, one just told me he's allergic to peanuts cause I gave him a sneakers and another one is crying because he's afraid to come to the door. I didn't realize my decorations were so scary.

Mr. Bill said...

Peanut allergies,ratz!!

When I was a kid all we had to worry about were getting the razorblades out of our apples.

Chris JC said...

I meant to record season 4 DVD review this week but swamped myself with an epic bit of podcast editing. I'll try to do it over the weekend.

No Blu-Ray, though, strictly SD for me.

Ralph, I can totally confirm 0% skiing content in Quantum of Solace. Maybe next time?

The end credit music by Four Tet is called "Crawl, End Crawl".

Class.

Herlihy said...

Four Tet?

I love Four Tet!

Chris JC said...

And they love you.

Frankly, it's just a remix of David Arnold's stuff through the film (therefore he is credited as writer), but I still thought it was a great title.

[ally] said...

I'm in Galveston right now, where the brunt of the storm hit. It's awful! A lot of houses and buildings are just gone. The weather is perfect today so there's a lot of people out here today. I've already seen 4 boats on the street.

Chris JC said...

Galveston, oh Galveston, I still hear your sea waves crashing
While I watch the cannons flashing
I clean my gun and dream of Galveston

Chris JC said...

I've just realised that my previous post might not be the most useful I've ever made.

I'm afraid I hadn't been aware of a storm.

PalmerEldritch said...

KABLAMO!!!!!





chris, i'm thinking the damage is from the last storm. it can take a long time to rebuild. especially when you've got insurance claims to fill out.

very cool that you got to see QoS already. i'm looking forward to it.

walked past a DVD of Live and Let Die in the store earlier today. Jane Seymour was a looker.

p.s. happy birthday, hello kitty!

[ally] said...

it's been over a month since the storm but this awfulness is gonna be here for a while. It looks like a fire ripped through here.

Herlihy said...

QUESTION

Has the news about Russell Brand making very inappropriate but funny voicemails on an 60+ year old actor's phone on his radio show made it over to the US?

I'm just wondering because of his burgeoning career over here. It's caused quite a scandal over here which has resulted in over 30,000 complaints, him quitting his radio show, a suspension of a high profile BBC star, the resignation of a radio controller and many many many articles of vilification in the newspapers...

Mr. Bill said...

Yeah, I read a little bit about it.
The Ryan Seacrest of the U.K. got suspended too if I am right. I haven't heard the call though.

Brand is funny but kind of an ass, he reminds me a little bit of Andy Dick the way he is so unpredictable and sometimes tasteless.

Stephanie said...

I doubt I would have heard about the Russell Brand incident if Chris hadn't of mentioned it to me on twitter.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Haven't heard a word. Last time I heard anything about him was when he hosted the MTV Awards.

Welcome to America. If Sarah Palin can't see you from her house, you don't exist.

Mr. Bill said...

Oh snap!!

Chris JC said...

Yeah, Jonathan Ross, author of "Why Do I Say These Things?" was also suspended for saying things to the answerphone of Andrew "Manuel from Fawlty Towers" Sachs, who is indeed 60+, in that he's 78.

Also, Holly Willoughby from The X Factor is pregnant. Just keeping you up to date with British celeb gossip - it's a fair trade for hearing about Britney's court cases, and Lindsey Lohan spending 53 seconds in prison that one time.

Herlihy said...

haha. i heard about "Holly Willhoughbooby". Bit of British humour there... We're so sophisticated.

I actually got told off by a friend for laughing at a joke on that Keith Lemon show :/

PalmerEldritch said...

hey, what's wrong with calling a 78 year old man on the radio and leaving nasty voice mails about banging his granddaughter?

oh, yeah. i guess it'd be the "calling a 78 year old man on the radio and leaving nasty voice mails about banging his granddaughter" part.

oops.



hopefully, this will keep Russell Brand from having a career in the states. at least until he combs his hair.

/dont like the hair

Herlihy said...

But he's apologised to Andrew Sachs numerous times. The thing is, when the show aired, it only got 30 complaints. Apologies were doled out and accepted.

Then The Mail got hold of the story... fast forward less than two weeks later and numerous jobs have been lost and 30,000 complaints have been lost.

Also. I like his hair. It fits his dandy image.

Trevor McFur said...

Anyone have any suggestions for a digital camera? Ease of use is very high on the list of priorities.

memphish said...

Trevor -- I recently got a Panasonic Lumix which is small and not too fancy because I'm not one of those long lens people. But I'd recommend going to a Wolf Camera or Ritz Camera and talking to the people there. The ones at ours at least are very knowledgeable and helped me pick mine out.

Holli

Trevor McFur said...

That's a good suggestion, although I'm not sure that any of those places still exist around here!

t-dot kim said...

Hey Trev, I've been asked to post this from our friend Jordan. He was at the Eagles/Seahawks game and sent me this txt...

"Congrats Trevor. Welcome to the Red Sox Nation of douche bagery. Fuck you Philadelphia"

Also expect a rant when he returns.






So...how's everydone doing? Enjoy the weekend?

Stephanie said...

Doing good. Working. Kim, I saw your Halloween pics on your myspace. Looks like you had a good time. You should be getting your package soon.

Stephanie said...

Why did I say myspace when it was facebook?

Trevor McFur said...

Let me guess ... Philly fans acting like jerks at the Seattle game today? I don't think that there's anything new about that compared with before we won the World Series.

Besides, we owed Seattle for the whippin' they put on us last season, and the Monday Night Massacre from 2005 (both at the Linc, nonetheless).

andrew. said...

- I like Four Tet. I hope he gets some good exposure from the Bond score.

- Mark Kermode gave Quantum of Solace a bad review, and his criticisms sounded like things that might bug me. Kermode seems to only like children's movies & musicals anymore though so i'm not sure i can trust him. I really like Craig as Bond so i'm looking forward to it. My opinion of Casino Royale is pretty similar to Stephanie's. I really liked it and it had a proper ending, but then it kept going and got a little tedious.

- watching a horror movie from 1992 starring our beloved Christian Shepherd called The Resurrected. It's based on an HP Lovecraft story. One of the downsides to watching a ton of movies (besides it rotting your brain and all) is that i spend half my time trying to remember where i've seen some actors. This movie features Mike from "Fast Times At Ridgemont High", and Heddy from "Herman's Head".

- The new Futurama movie "Bender's Game" isn't bad. it's on par with the other movies. It's got some laughs, tons of geeky sci-fi & fantasy references (like the title itself). Considering how little cultural cache Dungeons & Dragons has these days, it seems like a pet project for the writers. I forget, were there supposed to be 3 or 4 of these movies?

Jordan from the 206 said...

This had nothing to do with beating us. We're 2-6 and have lost 3 in a row at home. We're more than used to sucking it up. But nearly every Eagle fan in the stadium was wearing a Phillies hat. Pride in your team is great. But this shit was just obnoxious. As if it gave them something to rub in our faces. Forget winning. I honestly was offended in the least after the game. Like I said. I'm used to losing. It was everything up before the game and during. All the Iggles fans were walking around our stadium as if we were supposed to bow down to them because they were wearing Phillies hats. You couldn't say a word to them without them talking some lame shit about the Mariners sucking or about how they just won a world series. So yeah. Welcome to Phillies Sox Nation. Maybe it doesn't last. That only happens with prolonged success. For for the time being, your fans are doing the darndest to spread the douche baggery. Congrats. Hopefuly a team of mine one day is blessed with having as annoying of fans. Guess that will mean we won something. Oh, and you'll love this Trev. The one thing that mainly causes me to make the Red Sox Nation comparison. As I do for fun in all games. Whenever I'd run into some fans wearing a phillies hat or Eagles jersey, I'd ask them where they were from. And for every home grown Philly born and raised die hard I'd meet, there was about 5 idiots born and raised around Seattle wearing a Phillies hat saying, "My uncle used to work in Philly" or "My Grandpa once dated a girl who got a tattoo in Philly" in order to excuse their bandwagon convenient support of the new world series champs. Anybody who had the lamest reason to pretend they were a huge Philly fan was all about it today. Funny. Up til today, I had never once seen a Phillies hat in Seattle. Being an AL city and all. Yet now everyone and their mother is a "die hard" Phillies fan. Just the same as all those Red Sox fans that just so happen to exist all over the country ever since they became good. I'm a big sports fan. I love my home teams. And I'm the first person to give people credit for repping their teams. But there's nothing I detest more than bandwagon, front running fake fans. And I got a lot of it today. Disgusting. It would be one thing if this were a baseball game between the Phillies and M's. Still would've been obnoxious. But whatever. But at a football game. Annoying as fuck. So yeah Trev. You guys got us back for the past two whoppings we put on you at the Linc. Turn about is most definitely fair play. But seriously fuck those idiots at the game today. I wasn't aware that if a team from a city ever wins a title, it is a "get out of douche bag jail" card when any other team from said town plays a game. You guys better hope the Seattle Storm don't win the WNBA title next year. Because I am going to hang that shit all over the place.

Yeah, I finally got rid of my myspace page. I rarely checked it anyway, and there is The Lost Initiative myspace page if I need my fix. I find I'm on facebook at least once an ...hour, lol.

How was everyone's Halloween? I saw some really great costumes this year. I was surprised at how many ppl went as American presidents (past, present, or future) Also, a lot of girls dressed up as Juno. I was NOT surprised at the number of Jokers and Sarah Palins.

PalmerEldritch said...

Why no Palin-Jokers?

That'd be creepy.

what's up, blogspotica?

Trevor McFur said...

Now, the folks who just remembered that their great-great-grampa knew a guy who once ate a Philly cheesesteak, those aren't real Philly fans, and would have been wearing Rays gear if Tampa had won it. They're just douchebags, like you said, and come out after every major sporting championship. Lowest form of life in the universe.

As for the actual Philly fans ... we're still pretty high on this thing. And, if a native Philadelphian is living in Seattle, the game on Sunday might have been his first real chance to celebrate with other Philly fans. I haven't taken off my WS gear since Thursday. Give it a few weeks once we come off of our high.

Jordan from the 206 said...

You're right on most of that Trev. And they weren't all total douches. I just got pissed off with how many of them were walking around as if I should kiss their ass. One dude I met while tailgating was really cool and when I said congrats on the title, he really appreciated it and you could tell it meant a lot to him. But then on other time, I said to someone, "Congrats. How long had it been?", trying to connect Philly and Seattle's futility. He didn't know what I was talking about. Then his friend comes up to me and says, "He's not from Philly. He just had the hat to match his outfit." That annoys the crap out of me. As I'm sure it would you too.

I think I've done well not talking about Quantum of Solace, non?

did anyone watch Family Guy last night? There was a Lost joke on there. I'll have to hunt it down on youtube later.

Stephanie said...

Give us a one-word review of QoS, Chris.

Give us a one-word review of QoS, Chris.

"Sony"

Chris JC said...

What I will say is that nobody is ever happy.

Some people deride Casino Royale for having long card game sequences and actual espionage stuff in it, and at the end of this one people in the audience were moaning that it was an extended action scene.

Sad day for Leaf Phoenix fans.

Here's the Lost on Family Guy video.

Doing my part for the economy this week, I bought a new Nano -- Orange. I'm so glad to have a flywheel back. But on the negative side, it doesn't work well with my Monster cable that I use in my car. It doesn't have a tight enough seal so I'm getting a lot of feedback, and it doesn't charge while hooked up. (I think there's a TWSS in there somewhere). But my trip to the Apple store failed to turn up any devices designed to work with the latest Nano.

Then I got a Roku player to be able to watch Netflix Watch Instantly movies on my TV. It's really cool. Does anyone know if you can use it on any TV once it's synced to your Netflix?

Holli

Alirio, Is this you?

MB said...

(do I act with generosity and honor and let others make the TWSS from Holli's statement?......)



it doesn't work well with my Monster cable ... It doesn't have a tight enough seal

TWSS




/guess not

- watched the 1st two episodes of "Dead Set" and really enjoying it so far. It says a lot of what Romero wanted to say with "Diary Of The Dead" but better and with better production value. I wonder which will get to the US 1st, a remake of this or Shaun Of The Dead.

- Late night watching the Steelers tonight, and then early to rise so i can vote before work. are any of you crazy enough to go to an election party?

Alirio said...

Jordan from the 206 said...
Alirio, Is this you?

Not me. But it was big news around here...

These are the same people that pranked the POPE by pretending to be Canada's Prime Minister a few years back...

I love the gratuitous use of the PHOQUE (the French word for seal) which is pronounced FUCK.

elias said...

Holiday cut short but that means I get to see Why? at The Scala tomorrow night. And take a week off around Christmas.

What's been going on at the blogspot, peeps?

Chris JC said...

Elias - we've been trying to work out if you're the Elias who wrote into the Transmission whose other half is expecting twins.

Could be another Elias.

Stephanie said...

There is not another Elias.

PalmerEldritch said...

Begs to differ.

PalmerEldritch said...

but if that means what i think it means then CONGRATS, ELIAS!!!

fantastic news. very happy for you.

and if it doesn't mean what i think it means then nevermind.

elias said...

Quite right.

Congratulatios to my namesake!

MB said...

slow......day................

MB said...

Maybe everyone has been in line to vote all day


/Praise mail-in ballots IMO

Trevor McFur said...

I'm going into work late tomorrow so that I can vote before I leave. PA is one-day only. I've been seeing stories that lines are several HOURS long in states with early voting?!?!?! Wow.

No matter who you're voting for, I think that we can all agree, when we watch football, we don't want to see interviews with either of these guys like they're doing tonight on MNF.

memphish said...

Amen to that! I'm interested to hear how long the lines turn out to be here given that almost 40% of the registered voters in our country voted early. It will be interesting to see what the total turnout numbers will be.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

ah, yes. election day.

wonder how my dead grandparents will be voting this year!

PalmerEldritch said...

i'm kidding, i'm kidding.

i'd never imply that political operatives on both sides of the fence will be employing massive voter fraud.

/wasnt that the plot to "black sheep?"

PalmerEldritch said...

for the hat trick...

watched (part of) the Hurley episode with wacky english speaking jin today. ana lucia is annoying as all get out but, other than that, that's a damned enjoyable episode. hurley's mom is hilarious. rose is awesome. jorge garcia can tell a story with just a look. and... claire doesn't have those weird bangs. bonus!

Mr. Bill said...

Obama on saggy pants Jack will love this!

Oh Snap!

Chris JC said...

VOTE! Vote, you lovely people! I don't even care who for any more (actually, I do but that's your own business).

Remember that the President will basically rule the world but that we don't get a say in the process. We've gone a bit mental with the level of election coverage we've had here so you guys must be really fecking sick of it.

t-dot kim said...

Good Morning blogspot! I hope your morning is better than mine. Started the new shift this week, and so far I'm 2 for 2 with NOT flying. Basically, I get up at 5am to get ready and be here for 6am--for the pilots to tell me I'm not flying. Boo!!

Oh well, more time to check the blogspot, I guess.

Election Day is finally here, and thank goodness for that. I'm over the campaigning. I'm over the network stations messing up my TV viewing :P At least it gives me time to catch up on Prison Break...btw, just started watching and Season 1 is fun to watch. I'm curious to see the outcome. IF my family was voting, the decision would be split 2 for Obama, 2 for McCain. I hope the vote for guys isn't as close.

t-dot kim said...

Elias??!!! Twins?!
Hurrah!

I'm not a fan of babies, and 2 in one shot! Well done.

Were you on =The Island?
(ok, that was a little crass, wasn't it?)

Stephanie said...

Yep, Chris, the world's economy is tied to ours. Our economy is effed up, the world's economy is effed up.
McCain will take Alabama, I'm sure.

Chris JC said...

Didn't we establish that it was another Elias whose ultrasperm has created a brace o' kids?

Perhaps superb and under-rated character actor Elias Koteas?

Alirio said...

One of my favOUrite Canadian actors!!!

GoBama!

I mean Go Obama, not Go Alabama, sorry Steph....

Stephanie said...

I understand completely. Obama is my favourite to win.;)

Chris JC said...

It seems that "favourite" is the word of the day. And in that spelling!

Use it in a sentence!

Stephanie said...

Chris, you all will be in on the joke before the end of the day.

Chris JC said...

Care to clue me in early so I know the joke when I see it.

I figured Alirio was just reinforcing his Canadian credentials with the spelling.

Alirio said...

Steph,

Chris is already in on it as he was also the ?lucky? recepient of an advanced screening...

All of the blogspot will be subject to my draconian spelling propaganda in due time... in due time...

Chris JC said...

Ah - that makes sense now. I will investigate.

Stephanie said...

Going to vote now. Then to meet Holli!

Chris JC said...

Have you met Holli before?

I demand a podcast of this event!

Herlihy said...

24 is having a 4 hour premiere for season 7... isn't that a bit overkill?

Chris JC said...

Didn't they do this for season 5? I seem to recall the commentaries saying they put the first four episodes on in the first night.

PalmerEldritch said...

i think 24 usually does two nights in a row with two episodes each night for their season premieres. is that what they're doing this year?

btw, Desmond was on 24 one year as a German secret agent.

Jordan from the 206 said...

What I read what that this '24: Redemption' thing that's being shown at the end of the month is a prequel to season 7. Basically telling a short story to explain what happened between 2 years ago or so back when season 6 was on tv and now. And of course to set up season 7 and act as a ratings grab. I don't think the actual season starts until sometime in January.

As for the election being today and soon over. I'd be more excited if I truly believed that it was going to end all this nonsense. Regardless whoever wins, we're going to have one big group of angry people who aren't going to let this thing die. Be it a bunch of rich conservatives, small town people afraid of arabs, and white power Bill's. Or hippy tree huggers, big city elitists, the liberal media, black militants, and oh, the rest of the entire world. One of those two groups of people, as in every election, will not go away quietly. And heaven forbid the vote is close and drags out for days.

Enjoying Prison Break, Tdot? That T-Bag is a son of a gun, huh? Oh how I miss the old pre-Sona & pre-Sylla Prison Break.
