florist!

Chris JC said...

ThEmIsFiTiShErE is insisting on calling this one "The Floor", presumably to fill his review with wondering which floor the title referred to, followed by a bunch of people with no sense of humour telling him to watch the show properly. Good times.

PalmerEldritch said...

i'm still reluctant about his site ever since he was throwing up spoiler pics.

which should come to fruition... tonightish?

memphish said...

Le Fleur is one of my favorite florists here in Memphis in case anyone wants to send me flowers.

Chris JC said...

Those spoiler pics (the reason i didn't link this time) would appear to be tonight's, or at least following on from concepts introduced tonight.

PalmerEldritch said...

i was going to, holli, but i didnt want to make the other blogspotters look bad.

memphish said...

So will Locke get revenge on Ben or be manipulated by him once again?

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

be manipulated again. he's a chump.

but it'd be great to see him in a position of power over Ben for awhile. which would of course lead to Ben eventually one upping him.

Chris JC said...

For the record, I liked Kyle's call and enjoyed the smack talk. In the last thread I made comment that if Ghostwatch were to return to take him on, that I foresaw (a few weeks down the line) it turning into a self congratulatory duel that everyone would find tedious. I think I'd enjoy him better left to his own devices rather than having to "answer" to someone. At least he talks about LOST which Ghostwatch very rarely did.

Chris JC said...

That reply above is in reference to something Kim said on a different thread. Heck, I'll repaste it there now. Sorry, y'all!

t-dot kim said...

I'm just surprised at how "a select few" took the call. I thought it was established that we are a podcast that doesn't take itself too seriously. C'mon, we swear, we joke, and make fun of everyone. (Also a bit of behind-the-scenes trivia, I talked to Jay before I posted the call--and wouldn't post it w/o letting him know about it.) So, whatever you're thinking between the TLI/J&J: we're all good.

*Sigh*

It just gets under my skin that ppl take these things so seriously--it goes from humorous to annoying. It could also be that I've been up since 3am...and I'm frustrated, tired, and hungry.

...This coming from a Lady who probly poors a few hours over editing(I wish you didn't I feel like I'm missing the best parts:)The hell with the problem childs! I'f they are upset then they should call in and take it to Kyle. It would ADD a whole hell of alot of humor with his rebutal.

Chris JC said...

Keep rockin' Kim - no complaints from me. And even if they were, they would be directed at the caller, not at you.

Rrb said...

My only question with "Le Fleur " could it have to do with the orchid?

t-dot kim said...

I, like Alirio, thought of Guy Lafleur when I learned the episode was called "Lafleur"

I think it's a Canadian thing :P

/we love Hockey

memphish said...

Did anyone watch Reaper last night? I recorded it, but can't decide if I want to watch it.

Holli

Rrb said...

Go Bruines:)Sorry Canada MA native here.
Kyles best comment" flabby arms I don't know If I'd fuck her..Ladies?..."Rude but very FUNNY. Damm that Kategasim.

People are going to complain and have sticks up their butts. This is the internet afterall. Doesn't matter what the issue is, there will always be a "select few" who wants to voice their oh so important opinion. And especially when you deal with an entity such as J&J. Who are great. But let's be serious. They do have some cultish type fans. I visited their forum once long ago. Couldn't stand it. It was a ton of 15 year old kids who idololize Jay and make signature banners of him. To each, his own, right? Quite frankly, I'm surprised there hasn't been a bigger backlash from the Jay squad army of tweens. But yeah, I wouldn't bother getting too in a huff over what people find offensive. If there is one thing I've learned from the internet. It's that there's a ton of stupid people out there who take themselves and life far too seriously.

Kim, you say you will address the issue on the podcast next week. SIGH. Seriously? A couple people complain and you gotta go out of your way to placate them? You don't need to please everyone. And if you give these people a big apology, that sets a really bad precident. What if next week somebody complains about something else? Cuz ya know, I myself get quite offended whenever you guys talk about Okla-fucking-homa City. Just a thought.

Real fast about complaints and podcasts. Just like with Kyle nagging about getting the podcast posted, same applies here. IT'S A FLIPPIN' PODCAST PEOPLE! It's someone's HOBBY! Something they do FOR FUN in their FREE TIME when they are NOT WORKING their normal job. If you people want to listen to it, super. But jeez! Some people act like this is the 6 o'clock news. I realize that some podcasters out there take themselves too seriously with their hobbies (sorry, but that is what they are) and act like they are budding journalists and radio hosts. And therefore it's created somewhat of a warped sense of what these things actually are. But they are still people's hobbies. I wouldn't collect Sonny and Cher memorabilia if it nagged at me all the time. Yeah, some plan their weeks around listening to them. And some people love the glory of hearing their own voice. But that's YOUR deal. Not the podcasters. And if you get offended at something you hear, suck it up. It's big mean world. We don't always all agree all the time.

All I will say is this. Y'all are lucky Kim is Canadian. Cuz I don't think some realize how much she is going out of her way to be pleasant, and not say what is truly on her mind. And your even luckier that it's not my podcast. ;)

Oh, and good morning blogspot! How y'all doin' this fine day? :)

andrew. said...

what? Jay & Jack are taking over The Lost Initiative? Kate is dating Roger Linus & pregnant with Charlotte? Unicorns aren't real?

why am i always the last to know?!?

Stephanie said...

"Sayid working for Houses for Humanity? That wouldn't happen. That's like me getting a pedicure."


Jay does come across as sounding like a snob every once in a while. I can make fun of rednecks because they are my people. No body else can.

PalmerEldritch said...

"I wouldn't collect Sonny and Cher memorabilia if it nagged at me all the time."

wait... you collect Sonny and Cher memorabilia?

Stephanie said...

I've been so busy lately I haven't had time to think about Lost. I didn't even know the title of the episdoe until I heard Kim say.

Herlihy said...

Oh is it Lost today? Well, that just snuck up on me and everything.

PalmerEldritch said...

IT'S LOSTNESDAY!!!!

PalmerEldritch said...

oh. and what's for dinner? i'm thinking spaghetti or take-out sandwiches.

mb said...

The episodes that sneak up on you are awesome - like a little gift. Puts an extra spring in your step for the day (or perhaps I'm just a nerd) :)

of course - illicit drugs and coffee can do that too, but they wear off - a Lost episode sticks with you the whole week. So kids, don't do drugs, do LOST!


/I'm coasting on 3hrs sleep AND just ate Chinese food. Does my car have an autopilot? Nope....guess I'm screwed

James said...

Yeah, I agree with Jordan that there is NO need to send out an apology to any fan that thought Kyles J&J ribbing was offensive.

The podcast has an explicit tag, a slightly sardonic tone, and further more, I trust Kim enough to know when to draw the line as to what is offensive and what is not!

Another subject brought up: I agree with "Chris JC", that responses from Ghostwatch and others of that ilk (I loved Ghostwatch, btw) would certainly have the potential to turn into self indulgent blather to the detriment of other listeners...we've seen it before! Well called, Sir!

Jordan is very correct in his points re podcasting not being a professional vocation etc. I would like to say though that a great deal of listeners don't know this, and they shouldn't really if a podcaster is doing his/her job well. A lot of people think that this is our actual job! If you listen to a well produced show (TLI, J&J, Film Spotting, The Lost Score "cough cough" ;) ) it's easy to believe that you are listening to something done at the pro level. And why not? That's what a lot of us strive to do. A hobby is one way of putting it, for sure, but lets face it...we would LOVE to be able to give up our real jobs to do something like this...and I think a lot of the regular podcasters would love "break into the biz" so it were. I would and I'm not ashamed to say it. Especially when you are rated in iTunes ahead of Discovery, Animal Planet, Danny Bonaduce...and you know that someone is getting paid to make those!

memphish said...

I got nothing good for dinner tonight. I'll probably throw a bunch of leftover things into a salad.

But tomorrow night I'm doing Mustard-Roasted Fish and Creamed Broccoli with Parmesan.

Holli

Herlihy said...

but Ghostwatch never calls in that frequently, surely it's been about 9 months since he's called. i doubt chris has the time nor inclination to do a regular call...

whereas kyle does it everyweek and it starting to get a bit self indulgent...

elias said...

Celebrated Lostnesday by having a pint after work at this place. (hat tip to someone's voicemail on The Transmission). It's just a wee bit too much walking to replace The Social, Market Bar, The Cock or The George.

Keep being fucking awesome, TLI.

Johnny Ghostwatch said...

I have an astonishingly vast level of love for you too, Master Jimster!

I believe in my last appearance, I hinted that I was annoyed about something. It may be time to at least unveil my missile of explanations.

Chris JC said...

Elias, did you notice the beerintheevening reference number for the Jeremy Bentham? Go and have a look.

Clue: it's not 108.

Stephanie said...

I wasn't prepared for a special Lost dinner tonight. Over-cooked chicken, broccoli rice au gratin, and speckled butter beans is what we had. It wasn't that good. Tomorrow night will be better- taco salads.
