I was torn between posting the "Jizz in my Pants" video, or the CRAZY XboX grandma (BA BA BA BA BA BA BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!)

This IS a LOST blogspot afterall...who's gettin' it today?
(The Season 4 DVD, of course--get your mind out of the gutter)

t-dot kim said...

Steph, I'm almost done with Season 1 of Supernatural. I have 4 eps to go. I (heart) those boys.

memphish said...

I'm going to get my DVDs as soon as I drop off the Kid at school. It's raining here today so I don't even have to feel guilty for sitting at home and watching it.

Stephanie said...

Kim, I'll stick seasons two and three in mail asap. I've got Big Ed and Morgan hooked. I'm watching again this time I'm sweet on Sam.

Stephanie said...

Look. He's so cute when he smiles.

Stephanie said...

Back to Lost. I have a tradition of getting Lost for Christmas. Should happen this year too.

PalmerEldritch said...

i'm hoping to get the Blu-Rays on Christmas. or return stuff so i can buy the Blu-Rays on Christmas.

nothing like Bernard in HD. oh yeah!

memphish said...

Check out this Cloverfield monster.

memphish said...

The Dharmalars should enjoy the commentary on The Beginning of the End. Evi and Jorge discuss hair issues.

PalmerEldritch said...

my LOST season 5 prediction:

now that Future-Sayid has rescued Hurley from Santa Rosa (in the season 4 finale), he will teach Hurley how to straighten his hair to achieve the smooth look that future-ladies love.


also, Kate looks nice with straight hair. so, hopefully, Future-Sayid will pay her a visit as well.

PalmerEldritch said...

further season 5 prediction:

much like his tattoos, we'll have an episode devoted to when Future Jack's chest hair (last seen when he had his appendix out) fled his body (as evidenced by his appearance when playing house with Kate).

memphish said...

So is that one hair episode or an arc Palmer?

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

mini-arcs for hurley's hair, kate's hair, and jack's chest hair.

maybe Sayid tries to straighten jack's chest hair and a bad reaction causes it to all fall out?


"my name is sayid jarrah... and i am a hairdresser."

Did anyone ever hear anything explaining why the pictures change on the wall up the stairs when Miles goes ghostbusting in Inglewood?

Herlihy said...

i've just seen the trailer for Twilight.

i don't understand how the vampire in Twilight can roam around during the day... surely this flouts one of the major staples of the vampire myth

memphish said...

I'm transfering all my Juliet hate to Charlotte. Man she's a bitch.

Holli

t-dot kim said...

Holli, couldn't agree with you more. I used to HATE Juliette, now I'm leaning toward actually liking her.

I was recapping last year's Lostie's episode, and man, I really HATED her. That reminds me, the "Losties" coming up again soon...we need to come up with some new categories for the Awards Show,

Jordan from the 206 said...

Women hating on Juliet never made sense to me, and just came off as catty. Women being overly distrustful of other women. Charlotte on the other hand, have at it. I haven't liked her for a moment.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Save yourself $10 and whatever mental scarring.

3 minutes version of Twilight told by puppets.

Haven't seen the film & never will. But I'm pretty sure there isn't much more to the story than that.

Ralph- said...

i picked up Dark Knight. My sister is getting me LOST for christmas. Sorry, no dvd show this year.

memphish said...

Girls know who you can be friends with and who you can't. Juliet is the kind of girl who can be all innocent and steal your boyfriend out from under you. See The Other Woman. But even with that she's grown on me because I like how she stands up to Jack in particular, and to lesser degrees Sawyer and Ben. I think she made a real turn in the S3 finale where she goes back with Sawyer and says the reason she's going back is karma. Before that she was Every Man for Himself. Now she's more Live Together, Die Alone.

I started watching the extras and it makes me wonder -- is anyone going to be alive by the end of this show or will they all die?

I think this might work for your average bar brawl if your aim was good

"my name is sayid jarrah... and i am a hairdresser."


"I can straighten your hair, but it will only last a few minutes..."

The LOST season 4 DVDs are old news, kids!

Herlihy - there are various vampire myths that have them walking in daylight - I'm assuming in Twilight they can do it if it's overcast but non-diffused direct sunlight would screw them up.

Really, the only problem I have with Twilight is the idea it presents of a young woman blindly committing herself to a man, forsaking any other proper human connection, whose only concession to her seems to be that he decides to be emotionally distant, lest he kill her by accident.

Fucking terrifying.

Herlihy said...

i've read loads of vampire myths though, stupid media studies assignment 4 years ago, and i never heard anything about walking in daylight. I did some in depth research and everything. I went to Leeds Uni's library and everything!

Oh well. Looks gash anyways.

Ralph- said...

I was glad to see Jorma on SNL! I hear that he is playing Chacka in the Land of the Lost movie!

Chris JC said...

Ryan - the Aswang vampire myth of the Philippines pertains to creatures that look and behave perfectly human in daylight and then become flying demon types at night.

In fact most of the versions of the vampire mythos in which daylight doesn't kill them still has them either looking different or having a reduction in powers.

I sound like Fox Mulder.

Herlihy said...

Fox mulder? isn't that a character from that show that totes rips off Fringe? err..... I think it's named after an X Ray or something....

Mr. Bill said...

"My name is Sayid Jarrah...you killed my girlfriend...prepare to die."

t-dot kim said...

Ohhh, The Princess Bride. Great movie

Mr. Bill said...

To the death?

No...to the pain.

Jimmy said...

My Effing PS3 broke and is going in for service, hence the "No BluRay" for LOST and/or Dark Knight for at least a week or so. Somewhat bummed out by all this!

Jordan, I agree with your Juliet thoughts...however, I have quite the Charlotte Crush, so I demand everyone leaves her alone!

andrew. said...

- i've been a long registered Juliet hater and i'm a dude by gender so i don't think it's fair to boil it down to being catty. i agree that she kind of turned a corner towards the end of season 4 though.
As for Charlotte, i'm confused by her antagonism towards the losties if she just realized her big goal of getting back to her birthplace. I guess she encountered the Ben & Locke crowd first though, and took a bullet from Ben, so there's reason to be on edge.

- My season 4 DVDs showed up yesterday. I think i'm going to start the rewatch sometime next week so that i can finish up around Christmas.

- season 5: the Cindy season!!!

Chris JC said...

Even if you don't like Charlotte the character, Rebecca Mader seems lovely on the discs.

I can actually talk about the discs now! Who was amazed thazt it wasn't actually Zoe Bell who did Charlotte's "plunge from the tree" stunt?

You may also remember me a few weeks back saying that the scene called the "Frozen Donkey Wheel" was not actually the scene with the wheel - I suggested that this be reflected on Lostpedia's page for "Code Named Finale Scenes", or whatever it's called and got told that it might be a spoiler of the DVD content and that it should wait until the DVD was released in America before it went on there. As a UK viewer of LOST who knows when to avoid Lostpedia lest I learn something I didn't yet know this struck me as really wanky, suggesting that the rest of the global audience were lower priority.

Luckily someone bolder than I made the change anyway.

A series 2 episode of Skins is on and I'm trying not to watch it as I haven't started the series proper yet.

Sorry, Kim. Didn't mean to creep you out. Just got a little (sweet, non-stalkery) crush...

Jon from NKY said...

Got my Blue Ray about an hour ago!

PalmerEldritch said...

nice to see so many blu-rayers.

jon, you got a PS3? if so, you and jimmy should come join the PS3 thread on the BBS.

as for myself and the season four blu-rays, i'm in the end-of-the-year-dont-buy-anything-for-myself phase. can't pick up lost on blu-ray in case anyone buys it for me for christmas. if they don't i'm off to the store shortly thereafter. :)

any word on seasons uno and dos on blu-ray?

PalmerEldritch said...

p.s. japanese trailer for "terminator 4: batman versus transformers"

p.p.s. more watchmen videos

p.p.p.s. Ka-Blamo!!!!

Jordan from the 206 said...

Woo hoo. Looks like good ol' popcorn fun.

Seems Bale brought along his Batman voice.

Alirio said...

Nice to see some new DVD's might find themselves at the foot of the Festivus pole...

Jordan from the 206 said...

Pretty good explanation of Lost from a blogger talking about the newly released season 4 dvd:

"There are people who have given up on Lost, claiming the show asks too many questions without providing any answers and that the writers don’t know what they’re doing anymore. I’ll be the first to admit, around the early episodes of Season 3, I was starting to become one of those people. But I was wrong, and so are they. This can be observed best by watching the show on DVD, where instead of experiencing the frustration of constantly waiting for a single scene or two from every episode that was briefly shown in the “Next Week on Lost” preview from the week before, you can simply enjoy episode after episode at your own pace. Do this, and it’s clear that Lost is as good as it ever was, and you shouldn’t let how antsy you are to figure out the mysteries behind the show’s intricate weavings affect your enjoyment of what’s going on with the characters right now. Because, believe it or not, the show does answer questions, and if you watch Season 4 again without acknowledging that, you clearly aren’t paying close enough attention."

...at the foot of the Festivus pole... - lol

/"SERENITY NOW!"

Jordan from the 206 said...

Wow. Just read that NBC is giving Jay Leno it's weeklong 10-11 pm time slot after Conan replaces him for the tonight show. That's pretty crazy. Pretty much means NBC is giving up on having scripted dramas in that slot. And cuts it's primetime tv programming down by 23%. That's a whole lot less shows to program. And if they are overly successful, you can bet the other networks will take notice.

Chris JC said...

I've finally figured out how to decently get my DVDs onto my iPod for long journeys. So television can get knotted.

t-dot kim said...

J, I heard about that 10pm Leno show on the way home from work yesterday. That's very upsetting. I've never wanted a show/series to tank as much as this one. 5 hours of quality primetime air time a week eliminated--all for a guy who can't say goodbye. (It's like atheletes who play past their prime.) I hope this decision by NBC crashes and burns. Is this because of the writers' strike? No new dramas/sitcoms put into production because of the lockout? I don't like the direction the networks are going.

1 hour of Jay Leno
1 hour of Conan O'Brien (the most tollerable, but probably will be watered down because it being moved from 12:35 to 11:35)
1 hour of Fallon (fuck right off)
30 mins of Carson Daly--1 hour on Fridays.

Seriously?!

A little birdie told me the TLI gals are recording tonight around 7pm EST. If you're around/want to say hi, send them an e-mail at thelostinitiative@gmail.com

PalmerEldritch said...

"At least your breasts can entertain you."




um... guess i missed a doozy of a deleted comment back there.

anyhow, looking forward to the new TLI episode. should be fun.

Band of Brothers on DVD for $26 at Amazon. nice.

andrew. said...

- yeah, i'm hoping Leno fails. I can't think of any NBC 10pm dramas that i watch now, but it just eliminates the potential for one.

- Jimmy Fallon's house band is going to be The Roots. I have mixed feelings about this. I used to love The Roots, but i haven't liked their last 2 or 3 albums and they were aiming for the lowest common denominator the last time i saw them live. They are very talented musicians, and will probably be a great backing band, but, again, it eliminates the possibility that they will return to their former glory.

PalmerEldritch said...

besides Lorne Michaels, does anyone think a Jimmy Fallon talk show is an exciting prospect?

not saying i hate Jimmy Fallon but his Talk Show registers as a resounding "meh" to me.

Stephanie said...

ryan, it's her book, Stephanie Meyers can make her own rules about vampires. And she has. Basically, vampires are misunderstood and what we know of them are misunderstood urban legends. I'm not saying it's how it should me but that's the rules of her world.

Stephanie said...

Jimmy Fallon? No thanks. He was cute in that baseball movie but that's about it. He's not funny.

Jordan from the 206 said...

I hate Jimmy Fallon. And I think he is going to be horrible. The only positive out of him getting the gig is that Carson "tool wrapped in a hack" Daly didn't get it.

One thing that really sucks about Leno getting his new show is that it somewhat de-values Conan's "promotion" to the Tonight Show. He still has Leno ahead of him. Leno will probably still get the better guests. Leno still makes more $. So yeah Conan got "promoted", but kinda not really. Sucks for him.

Stephanie said...

Something about Lost


I continued to be amazed that Damon and Carlton are big Stephen King fans. What do I know? I'm not a reader.

t-dot kim said...

Aimee was a trailblazer. She had The Book Club before anyone! :P

Stephanie said...

Kim, seasons two and three are on their way.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Who is Aimee?

Sorry steph.

Jon from NKY said...

Palmer,,, yes it's a PS3.. Just got it in September. What's the hook up?

Sorry about the delayed blogspot response. Busy with real life stuff dammit.

PalmerEldritch said...

you should stop by the BBS and check out the PS3 thread. the XBox thread too if you have one of those.

Mr. Bill said...

I'm a Jimmy Kimmel fan.
Leno has a constant schtik going and I never really got into it.

I watched Letterman till Jimmy came along and never got into Conan.

It does look like Conan got kind of boned by Leno.

Ralph- said...

You Met Gilbert Gottfried...!

Mr. Bill said...

I don't get it...

Jordan from the 206 said...

Yeah, it's lame that Leno got the 10-11pm time slot. But NBC was crazy enough that they actually first offered him their 8-9pm slot! Luckily he turned it down. What morons running that network.

Jordan from the 206 said...

For the first time, the sum total of NBC's nightly talk-show hours per week (17.5) will exceed the prime-time hours (17) devoted to everything else: comedies, dramas, reality series and game shows.

Jordan from the 206 said...

It's easy money for the networks.

I will protest by not watching or DVR recording.

It's not like that network has any programing that I would actually record any way.

So they can Frak off...

Herlihy said...

Ooh.

I just saw the trailer for the live action Dragonball film. It looked horrifically camp and amazing at the same time. I didn't think that Eddie from Further Instructions would be a good choice... but maybe i was wrong... Also, James Marsters in heavy green prosthetics? Just wrong.

Bring on April.

@ Mr. Bill


Listen, listen!

Here we go downtown
(garbled) ... all around
you can't stop (garbled)

KA-BLAMO!

You just won the lottery
that's ka-blamo!
You kissed Shannon Doherty
that's ka-blamo!
You joined a sorority
that's ka-blamo!
You lied about the lottery
NOT ka-blamo!

You met Fred Segal at a debutante`s ball
You gave him your number, he gave you a call
He told you to meet him at the corner at eight
You met him at nine, that's right, you were late

You stupid idiot, you don't know what you missed
Fred Segal's a star, and you called dis
His pimping-ass cooling-ass Mack-ass building
With the ivy on the walls but not around the lettering

You dissed Fred Segal, and everybody knows
(ha ha ha ha ha) You're not ka-blamo.

The doc fixed your arteries
that's ka-blamo!
your mouthwash is gargly
that's ka-blamo!
your water is watery
that's ka-blamo!
I majored in pottery
NOT KABLAMO.

You're chilling with your dudes and then they stab you in the face
On the way to the hospital you're bleeding all over the place
Your leg is amputated 'cause you got gangrene
And then you get cancer and you die in your teens

But then this really pretty girl who you always really liked
Shows up to your funeral and that's a real mixed blessing.

Your jello is wobbly
that's ka-blamo!
You met Gilbert God-fer-y
that's ka-blamo!
You're Harlem Globetrotter-y
that's ka-blamo!
You watch the disorderlies
NOT ka-blamo!When you're mining for coal and you forget what coal is
And you're sure to be fired, because that's your job!
When a mole's in your xxx and you wonder where the mole is
You're screwed man, a mole is in your ass.

GOD

The meaning of life is revealed to you
and all of the drinks are old English brew
Your whim is the word of the people on earth
but the whole "mole in the ass" thing is haunting you.

When your fluids are bodily
that's ka-blammy
What happened to ka-blamo?
I mean ka-blamo!
Good, that's better.
that's ka-blammy!
Wait, I'm confused.
We said ka-blamo!

HARD.

Mr. Bill said...

Thats Kablamo.

Nice
