This is my first time using Garage Band, finally. (I think I prefer Adobe Audition to edit podcasts)

It should be up in about 20 mins!
~Kim

PalmerEldritch said...

third!

or something. thanks, ladies!

Chris JC said...

Wahey! I've been waiting for this so I can listen why I vacuum clean my house.

It makes chores fun!

memphish said...

The Island hates babies -- just like Kim. Best line of the podcast. At least up until that point.

PalmerEldritch said...

LOST time travel is not BTTF time travel.

LOST time travel is Bill & Ted time travel.

that's the easiest way to explain LOST time travel.

memphish said...

Excellent.

Holli

Chris JC said...

We have to remember to do this, or it won't happen... But it HAS happened!

mb said...

The whole accusation of Kate (by Cassidy) taking Aaron "for herself" was kind of pissing me off (like Aimee said) but I'm realizing that the whole point is of course that "they were not supposed to leave."
This does however, underscore the fact that Aaron should be back on the island with them, right? Or was Kate's purpose to get Aaron off island and then return? This is what I don't get yet.

PalmerEldritch said...

congrats, girlies! congrats on the voice mail, kim. congrats on your spanking, aimee.

great show, ladies.

mb said...

JORGE!!!

Holy crap that is sweet!

t-dot kim said...

That call was unexpected.

Holli, my favourite line of the podcast was when Aimee read part of an email "Richard Alpert stole my innocence". Too funny.

memphish said...

I want one of those t-shirts too.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

i already have one of them. :(



/not really
//yet

memphish said...

Just because it's true of you doesn't mean you have the t-shirt, P.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

well, then, someone add that shirt to the TLI swag site!

i imagine a dark primary color shirt with a cutout of dr eyeliner's head and then "Richard Alpert Took My Innocence" in bubbly yellow letters outlined in white underneath the picture.

at least the Others gave little Ben something for his trouble

PalmerEldritch said...

brilliant, mb!

That's hilarious MB!

If anyone actually makes a "Richard Alpert Stole My Innocence" t-shirt, I'm already committed to buying two!

That could be the greatest inside joke EVER!!!

Will Cafe Press accomodate?

Chris JC said...

I've been reading these and considering doing a Café Press shirt bearing that legend as soon as I finish work.

But I've just finished and it's 1am over here in the future so frankly I'm not sure I want to right now :(

Chris JC said...

Assuming CafePress don't kick my arse:

Alpert Shirts!

Rendered in a Ché Guevara shirt style that looks cheap and yet so very Camden Town Cool.

Chris JC said...

I wonder how much bad slash fiction has been launched in the past week based on exactly this concept?

Trenton said...

I like the shirts. But you are charging too much. We are in a recession people.

Chris JC said...

That's CafePress's price - I have added zero markup. Only did it for a laugh - I don't actually expect anyone to buy one. Apart from me.

Chris JC said...

I see the preferred phrasing is "stole". I think "took" is more tender.

Chris JC said...

I was so going to post that "Anything that happens, happens" bit from Mostly Harmless. Bugger.

Aimee - to stand you in good stead, the "trilogy" has five books:

* The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (which stops dead at the exact point Douglas Adams' deadline was up)
* The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
* Life, the Universe and Everything
* So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
* Mostly Harmless

Adams died a few years ago but Eoin Colfer has been commissioned to write a sixth one which I'm not too sure about, especially with the way book 5 ends.

PalmerEldritch said...

i'm very tempted to buy that shirt but it looks a little too much like NAMBLA propaganda.

that said, your shirt design is a very good (and stylish) execution of exactly what we asked for.

Chris JC said...

No worries. I've already had to say on Twitter a couple of times that I genuinely don't ACTUALLY expect people to buy any, but that after doing the image I couldn't be bothered putting it on a picture of a T-shirt and finding somewhere to upload it so I did this instead (and heck, I ordered one for myself)

Also - it's freakishly late here and I'm not sure when I last slept.

Mr. Bill said...

Great podcast Ladies, I loved that Jorge really called your podcast flippin' funny coincidence.


Great shirt Chris!

Chris JC said...

Mr. Bill - when I received your April fool MP3, I did remix it into a funky dance number with pitch shifting, rhythm warping and other fun tricks but a power cut put paid to the finished product.

Mr. Bill said...

Lol I'll remember to be extra drunk next time. That might make the cut. :P

Kyle from Kentucky said...

maybe if I continue to not call in more and more actors will call. I'm hopin this week Carlton will call in and say that Libby's last name is actually Mader.

mb said...

lol Kyle.

but sorry - you're not allowed not to call. must hear you rant. missed it this week!

Kyle from Kentucky said...

i had a hell of a gspn rant last week but i tried to send it mp3 style or whatever. given my lack of technology knowledge it didn't work for them. I'm gonna redo it sometime though it was pretty damn good.

What about this Las Vegas thing? There's no way in hell I'll miss that!

memphish said...

Congratulations Palmer who won the basketball pool!

Holli
/dead last and still pissed about the whole Tigers situation

Rrb said...

Are we supposed to think that Richard took Little Ben to "THE TEMPLE". If so it didn't sound like a very safe place to go.

PalmerEldritch said...

wait... what?

i won??

how do i log in?

Kyle from Kentucky said...

a Tigers fan eh? Memphis or Detroit?

memphish said...

Memphis, thus the name -- Memphis - h for Holli.

And it's not like I went there or anything, but the Tigers basketball team do manage to give a lift to this otherwise shitty city where we lead the US in crime, obesity and the like. Memphis is definitely a city with an inferiority complex.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

how is everyone so obese if people keep stealing your food?

memphish said...

They steal from the emaciated former Ole Miss co-eds peppered throughout the city who buy the food to keep up appearances, but never actually eat it.

The real story is exactly what you'd expect -- poor people, no grocery stores, no transportation, etc. Too depressing for the blogspot.

Boobs.

Holli

mb said...

Forgot to say - lmfao @your Alpert shirts Chris!

Chris JC said...

That's very kind of you. They are really aimed at gay students who are LOST fans.

Chris JC said...

Believe it or not, I was not singling anybody out - although I can now very clearly see how this would appear to be the case :(

memphish said...

If I could get my innocence back, I would totally consider giving it to Richard Alpert.

OK, I'm lying about the considering part.

Holli

memphish said...

In a slight bit of more seriousness, I think Alpert means Ben will lose his innocence like Adam and Eve did when they ate from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. The question is will he also eat from the Tree of Life and never die? Clearly he continues to age and Richard doesn't, so I'm going to say no for now. Do you think there's a painting of the bones of Alpert somewhere in that Temple a la Dorian Grey?

Holli

andrew. said...

- Going along with my Pet Cemetary theory, i think Ben will emerge from the temple as a blank slate in thumBenlina's body. He will basically infiltrate DHARMA pretending to be old ben, but he won't remember any of his childhood. There will be a scene where Annie tries to lay a smooch on him but then calls him out for being somebody else. [i'm okay with being entirely wrong all of the time now. i've accepted it and i'm just trying to stay out of the island's way]

- Official Lost Podcast is spoilery for this wednesday's episode, but i think it's safe in regards to the rest of the season. They did mention Cindy which made me happy. :)

- Supposedly the last 3 episodes of Pushing Daisies will begin airing the last week of May, but a season 2 DVD will be out in July, so it wouldn't be hard to just wait.

- Adventureland was filmed in Pittsburgh and is getting a good critical response so i'm excited about that! I hope it makes some money.

- Was Tom always an other or was he DHARMA at some point? I feel like we should be seeing him this season.

Herlihy said...

...Was i just singled out?

Chris JC said...

Sexily.

mb said...

I don't know how much Ben is going to specifically remember memory-wise, but I totally agree with Holli that the crux of what happens to him in the Temple is that he gains knowledge that he did not have before, as in the Tree of Knowledge - i.e. his 'eyes will be opened' (adding further subtext to first shot of the series of an eye opening). I imagine the knowledge includes the nature of the island (what/where it is) and an understanding of time and space which is way beyond ours and perhaps could be explained by Cuselof through another Hurley/Miles conversation which will entertain us all :)

Chris JC said...

Alpert's clearly going to bugger him senseless, thus transferring some of his immortality.

I would lay serious money on there already being a slash fic out there with this basic premise.

mb said...

Was Tom always an other or was he DHARMA at some point? I feel like we should be seeing him this season.

Not sure if he was DHARMA once, but a lot of people are thinking that the guy who says to Alpert that "Ellie and Charles won't be happy" about taking Ben, is Tom

memphish said...

Maybe that's why the Others never really explain what exactly is going on. Maybe you can really only "know" if the Island/Temple/Richard reveals it to you. So all that frustrating lack of information is because that's the way the Island has set it up.

Holli

mb said...

I agree Holli. And that would jibe with Ben never EXPLAINING the island to Locke but wanting to show him "the magic box". I'm sure it also was because Ben didn't want to (b/c he's a conniving little shit), but he probably COULDN'T explain it either.


cue Jordan - "Oh - so the secrets of the island are conveniently 'unexplainable' until they figure something out. RIIIIGHHT!"

I keed, I keed!
I keed cause I love ;)

sorry - I'm such a mocking little a-hole I know. It gets me into trouble daily.

mb said...

DAMN! Just realized that I never wished Palmer a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Sorry!

Hope alcohol and bacon were involved. not simultaneously. ;)

mb said...

New Dharmaline! Yay!

downloading now...

mb said...

Doc Arzt talks about Ben's (and the Other's) possible 'state of mind' post-temple - good discussion.
They mention that maybe after TEMPLATION (get it...like temptation.....(tap tap) is this thing on...) you have a perception of good and evil which transcends what most of us understand, and could justify (sort of) some of the 'evil' things that Ben has done.

PalmerEldritch said...

doc artz have a podcast or something? am i out of the loop?




thanks, MB. it was a good day. there was plenty of booze and then the next day there was plenty of bacon. good stuff!

mb said...

Glad the b-day was good P :)

Doc Arzt does indeed have a Lost podcast and it ain't bad. Good discussion. It's called The "Doc Arzt & Friends LOST Podcast"

andrew. said...

Isn't Doc Arzt an insider of sorts? Is his podcast spoilery or just conjecturish?

memphish said...

I gave up on Doc Arzt after the whole S3 Finale Spoiler-gate. He was all up on his high horse against DarkUFO for putting it in their spoiler section, yet his site was constantly spoiling me on smaller things in their headlines.

Holli

memphish said...

And his whole asking the fan community for money for him to get to go to Hawaii bugged me too.

Holli

mb said...

I have not followed his site much (nor his rants against Dark UFO). Didn't realize he asked for money to go to Hawaii - not too impressed with that, must say.

As far as the podcast goes, they generally do not cover spoilers and if there is anything spoilery, they give good warning.

mb said...

Now that I've mocked Jordan - I realize he hasn't checked in since Sunday. Hope he's alright (w/sickness and all) :(

PalmerEldritch said...

set up

Stephanie said...

One dirty kablammo!

My throat hurts. I caught the blogspot sickness.

memphish said...

Do you think it's just pollen Steph? It's rampant after all.

Holli

Stephanie said...

At first I was hoping it was just allergies. But with each hour last night, the sore throat got worse. I woke up at 2 this morning with it so bad I could hardly swallow. I've felt crappy today- like I'm running fever. I'm sure this was the snotty nose Morgan had last week.

Mr. Bill said...

Oh snap Steph. I hope you aren't coming down with Flu. I had it and it sounds just like my symptoms and it took a good two weeks for me to get back feeling better.

Good Luck!
