WOOHOO!

aimee in little rock said...

I predict this episode will contain awesomeness.

memphish said...

That picture guarantees awesomeness, if not shoulders.

Holli

JonFromNKY said...

And yet Bernard is still shirted... Sigh

aimee in little rock said...

What better way to start the season, but with a bronzed & shirtless Sawyer?

Oh wait, I forgot about Wet Desmond.

Dammit.

PalmerEldritch said...

"Wet Desmond" sounds like a euphemism or one of those weird intimate maneuvers.

"So, then I took her back to my place and gave her the old 'Wet Desmond.'"


LOOOOOOOOOOOOST!!! very excited (visibly?) for LOST tonight. good stuff.

I love it when a guy gives me a Wet Desmond.

Alirio said...

YAY LOST!!!

Woot!

PalmerEldritch said...

good ol' aimee. god bless her.

i hope we get some Charles Widmore scenes tonight. hopefully, him being a jerk.

and somebody doing some sort of kung fu. but preferably not Aaron.

aimee in little rock said...

Sayid on screen = guaranteed Chuck Norris moment.

Wesh said...

Hi you guys! Missed yall!!
And yay for Lost being just around the corner!
I'm just finishing up on rewatching Season 4 - I'm at the last 3 episodes - and then the awesomeness can be brought on!

Enjoy your Lost evening, blogspottica!

Wesh said...

oh, yeah, congratz on your new President, America, and here's to 4 years of prosperity, world peace and good health to all. Cheers!

PalmerEldritch said...

whirled peas!!!

wesh, i'm having so called "belgian waffles" tonight. and there will be two Domo Kun figures in my kitchen while i make them. and a Domo calendar in my bedroom. so, it'll be a Wesh themed LOSTnesday.

HOLY CRAP! the RETURN of LOSTnesday! woo-hoo!!!

and the return of Aimee and Wesh. good stuff!

Ralph- said...

KA-

PalmerEldritch said...

BLAMO!!!!!

PalmerEldritch said...

i wonder if, when Jack grew his crazy beard, he also grew back his chest hair? and if he did will he then shave his chest along with the beard before trying to round up the Oceanic 6?

Stephanie said...

Tonight is Taco Night!

I just don't want to have to hear two hours of the Oceanic 6 discussing why they have to lie and why they have to go back unless we get some sort of an interesting answer.

Stephanie said...

Official Lost Podcast up.

Ralph- said...

off work at 7 so i am not having a special meal. I may get an Angry Whopper just so i am 100% alert! I have this feeling that Jin is not Dead, but someone will be after tonight.

UGH!

Stephanie said...

With weird sound.

Ralph- said...

Jorge Garcia will be on KROQ Radio LA, LIVE in 5 minutes. Check it out on KROQ.COM

aimee in little rock said...

I hope Charlotte dies. Screaming.

PalmerEldritch said...

checking the fuck out of that.

Ralph- said...

This is one of my favorite Nirvana songs!

I hope Charlotte dies naked showing her boobies. in HD.

PalmerEldritch said...

yer a sweet girl, aimee. :)

but, yeah, she's pretty annoying. hopefully, she'll get less annoying. or die horribly. maybe killed by the smoke munster and then eaten by polar bears?

maybe someone will give her the wet desmond and then she'll die ala Shannon and Ana-Lucia?

remember kids, only have the hot sexing in specially marked Dharma Sex-Cages or it could be fatal.

PalmerEldritch said...

"I hope Charlotte dies naked showing her boobies. in HD."

why only hers?

Ralph- said...

cause i dont want the other boobs to die

PalmerEldritch said...

JORGE'd!

Stephanie said...

Isn't it funny how us girls are unwilling to accept any new female characters?

So this is what real radio sounds like? I don't know what that crap is we have on the airwaves here in B'ham.

PalmerEldritch said...

jorge, stop spoiling us!

Ralph- said...

well, the thing he mentioned was shown on the commercials (for some reason). i wonder how that ties in.

Stephanie said...

I don't hear Jorge. I hear Talking Heads.

aimee in little rock said...

Ralph, I saw a trailer for Crank 2 and thought of you. Before I laughed hysterically at the premise.

PalmerEldritch said...

which trailer, aimee? was it the one with the constant swearing? or the cleaned up one?

aimee in little rock said...

It was the one where the guy is in a hurry.

mb said...

Wow - I love the first Lostnesday of the year. It brings out all the blogspotters that we've been missing.

(choking up) its like the family's...back together

andrew. said...

- avoiding any Lost content today. It's so close, why give in to spoilers now! Instead i'm listening to Ron D Moore's Battlestar Galactica podcast. I think he's conspiring to blow out everyone's hearing with the act-break beeps, forcing all of his fans to get hearing aids which can then be infected with a cylon virus during the inevitable invasion.

- I can accept Charlotte as a bitchy character as long as people continue to call her out on it. I hope they explain how Ben didn't know that she was born on the island.

- I hope the others finally get to the freaking Temple. They've been walking for a season & a half.

- In my Lost tradition, i'm picking up my favorite, indian food, for dinner. i may buy some waffles too because that sounds really good.

PalmerEldritch said...

yes! buy waffles and then scream "WAAAAAAAAAAAAAFLES!!" like Michael screaming for Walt. :)

mb said...

Here's the link to Jorge on a Detroit morning show. I haven't listened so I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S AT ALL SPOILERY so listen at your own risk!

mb said...

Just had another Lostnesday realization moment

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!

don't know what's for dinner, but there's a nice big dish of Cold Stone ice cream in my post-8pm future :)

andrew. said...

now i have to buy ice cream too.
"Iiiiiiiiiiiice Creeeeeeeeaaaaam!"

andrew. said...

ice cream-blamo i meant.

aimee in little rock said...

Lostnesday drinking game:

- Everytime Ben says something sarcastic, take a drink

- Everytime Sawyer calls someone a nickname, take a drink

...

aimee in little rock said...

Everytime someone says the word "island"...

Everytime Hurley says "dude"...

PalmerEldritch said...

disclaimer: if you are going to play Aimee's LOST drinking game, you may need to have a donor liver and skilled surgeon standing by.

aimee in little rock said...

Locke's got a liver he won't be needing anymore...

Herlihy said...

...or will he?







probably not.

Herlihy said...

That said, if you are going to pickle your liver, a la Nicolas Cage in Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas, it's probably not best to rely on a fictional character's liver for help.

PalmerEldritch said...

but its better than nothing, right? right?


/wants Popeye's gall bladder

Stephanie said...

I saw the Crank 2 trailer andcthought of ralph- also. Saw of before My Bloody Valentine which was a lotcof fun. Not good just fun.
Damn it. Now I have to pick up ice cream too even though it's too cold.

PalmerEldritch said...

did you see My Bloody Valentine in 3D?!

Jimmy said...

Sorry I'm late, I've been practicing my Wet Desmond. Feel rather floaty!

Lookign very forward to this evening...hopefully new music as I can't be assed chatting over Life and Death again. I have a feeling the music will be good this season.

Sawyer looks more bronze than usual, but can I also say not as cut, perhaps.

What's with the Charlotte hate, btw? I actually like her, and think she's pretty damn attractive...

(Awaiting hate mail and blanket criticism)

mb said...

While I think she has been given some bitchy dialogue - I am also intrigued by what the hell Charlotte's story is re: the island. The sooner they can start into that the better.

If said connection to island is barely intriguing, my opinion of her will retroactively plummet.

Attractiveness rating =
8 (out of 10) tubs of Dharmawhip.

mb said...

Something non-lost to help pass the time...

from Stephen Colbert:

"THINGS THAT ARE TRYING TO TURN ME GAY and THEIR SUCCESS ON A SCALE OF 1 TO 10":

Gay People = 4
Throw rugs = 7
Clive Owen = 8

mb said...

Just to clarify (and correct) - those ratings should have been inside the quotation marks as they are Colbert's words :)

PalmerEldritch said...

Clive "Mumbles" Owen

"Mumble mumble mumble Britain mumble Roman Legionnaire. Mumble mumble mumble Lancelot. Mumble KING ARTHUR!!!"

although, he was much better in Children of Men. he's a famous mumbler in my book.

Charlotte is pretty annoying. the actress probably much less so. one thing that would help is if she would stop making this face.

PalmerEldritch said...

also, can the Island girls have a sleepover and give each other makeovers?

/dharma pillow fight?

Stephanie said...

I apologize for my atrocious last post. I was nervously awaiting having my blood drawn.
I did not see it in 3D since I saw it in Jasper, Alabama. No digital. I would have traveled to the big city of Birmingham if I knew that beforehand.

Stephanie said...

OMG, Andrew, you are right. RDM needs production help with his podcasts.

PalmerEldritch said...

he also needs a haircut.

and is the dude turning into George Lucas?

Wesh said...

hehe, enjoy those waffles Palmer! I think I'll have to settle for pancakes, but now that you've brought them up, I might have to get me some tomorrow. Might even make them myself :)

Alirio said...

Oh no!!!

I got so excited about LOST tonight that I...

Stephanie said...

Palmer, aren't you having meat? That just wouldn't fly down here. Breakfast for dinner is ok but no meat?

Alirio said...

I'm sure Palmer will have a mountain of bacon...

Speaking of bacon... I'm going across the street from my hotel to get a baconator to celebrate the eventual return of the Dharmalars.

Don't forget to call the Dharmaline!!!

206-203-0952

PalmerEldritch said...

not sure if the lovely girlfriend picked up some bacon. uh oh... :\



she did pick up some ice cream though. throw some of that on my waffles and i'll be good to go.

looks like it's getting to be time to make some waffles. have a nice night everyone and enjoy LOOOOOOOOOOST!!!!

PalmerEldritch said...

bacon update:

have backup coming over with some bacon asap.

phew! LOSTnesday is saved!

Jordan from the 206 said...

Whoa. You guys seem excited about this show. Maybe I should check it out?

Aimee said:
"I hope Charlotte dies. Screaming."

Stephanie said:
"Isn't it funny how us girls are unwilling to accept any new female characters?"

You are so totally right Steph. I still to this day stand by my defense of Juliet's character in her early days. And also like to point out how hard of a time the women all seemed to give her. Which IMO was a bit more than warranted. I think I've been a bit validated as well as Aimberley have both seem to have seen the light as time has passed. HOWEVER, I gotta say, count me in on the Charlotte hate. I can't stand the bitch. Might be cuz she's very bitchy. Also might be cuz I find her to look like a slightly prettier version of Eric Stoltz in the movie Mask. It's really quite simple. Bitchy + hot = don't Either way, I'm with Aimee on this one. Wouldn't mind seeing her get run over by the Hurleybus.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Posting error. Third to last sentence should've read:

Bitchy + hot = ok. Hotness overides bitchyness.

Not bitchy + not hot = ok. Not the poor girl's fault she's not hot. At least she's nice.

Bitchy + not hot = HELL NO! This ain't baseball. Two strikes and you're out!

JonFromNKY said...

Bacon Update:

I'm here!

Jordan from the 206 said...

And if I remember correctly, both Jimmy and Andrew find Charlotte quite fetching. So yes, I realize that I will prob get some disagreeing comments on my assessment of Charlotte's face. And in an effort for a pre-emptive rebuttal, I give you this comparison.

Jordan from the 206 said...

andrew. said...

- actually, i'm not that into Charlotte. I've forgiven some of her bitchiness because of her back story, but for the TLI Losties i still called for someone so smack that stupid smile off of her face.

- however, they just featured Cindy in the clip show!! No doubt this entire season is going to revolve around her.

Jordan from the 206 said...

I'm hoping for lingerie ghost Alex. :P

Jordan from the 206 said...

Bwahahaha!

So I just reloaded the main blog page, and for the first time looked at the main photo. Just for a split second. At a second's glance, it seemed to me that Rose wasn't wearing any pants! Hahaha. Do this. Look at the picture and blur your vision just slightly. You'll know what I mean. lol.

[ally] said...

i'm so ready!!! i changed my pole dancing day from wednesday to tuesday just so i could watch lost. so i'll sit here sore as hell, but i'll be watching lost.


:D

t-dot kim said...

t-dot kim said...

Herlihy said...

Right. Seeing as Lost should be airing right around now... I shall check back in when i have seen the episodes...

HAVE FUN.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Shoot. It's about that time. West coast people (Jimmy & MB), retreat! Catch you at 2 am EST, blogspot. Everyone enjoy. Taco's and bacon included.

Stephanie said...

Jordan, we can't hear anything any character says while Charlotte is onscreen because we are laughing too loudly.

memphish said...

Poor Aimee!

Holli

memphish said...

Are we not getting an episode thread? I really enjoyed that and have lots of questions. I'm looking forward to the rest of Season 5. And I wonder if Jorge's dog is jealous of the shirt Hurley had to wear.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

holy shit!

lemme know when the thread where we can geek out over these episodes is up.

bacon update: de-fucking-licious. and the waffles were good too. the breakfast waffle for dinner and the ice cream covered waffle for dessert.

Stephanie said...

The only thing I have to say is that it was a really quick 2 hours. Excellent. Especially the ***** ******.

Alirio said...

I was planning this whole video-podcast reaction to LOST but my voice is frakin' shot...

Hope my voicemails aren't too hoarse...

NEW THREAD!

NEW THREAD!

NEW THREAD!

Mr. Bill said...

That was terrific! Just what I wanted in a season premier episode.

Steph, I also loved the ***** ******.

andrew. said...

Yeah, i loved the ***** ****** too. Wait, what the hell is the ***** ******?

Mr. Bill said...

You know... when ***** walked in and ***** said ********* and he was all****** and then ******* like Willie Nelson.

andrew. said...

you kids and your crazy jive talking.
