i wish my homework was always this fun

Stephanie said...

Ya know, the ads I've been seeing on hulu for seasons one and two on blu-ray has me wanting to rewatch.

PalmerEldritch said...

my homework for this week is to watch the entirety of Season 1?!


who else is going Ghostbusters crazy today?

PalmerEldritch said...

so... $20 off if you buy two seasons of LOST on Blu-Ray on Amazon and then a $20 mail-in rebate per season???

so, if i want to upgrade my Season 1 and 2 DVDs to Blu-Ray, i could do so for $40?!

can anyone confirm this rebate thing?

PalmerEldritch said...

yeah... US and Canada only. sorry, dudes.

morgan said...

Palmer, I believe the rebate requires the proof of purchase tab from a previous DVD set, a receipt for the Blu-ray set dated between 6/16/09 & 6/16/10, and the rebate slip from the Blu-ray set. But it's a limit of one per household, so you won't get $40, just $20. You can get around that by using another address and name if you know someone that'll cash the check for you.

PalmerEldritch said...

hmm... LOST upgrades or Ghostbusters Video Game and Blu-Ray?

t-dot kim said...

Kablammo!

t-dot kim said...

P, your homework is Season 1, Disc 1

PalmerEldritch said...

i may actually do my homework then. cuz i've never had a teacher who flew around in helicopters before. BADASS!!!

Jordan said...

Not to take the focus off the big re-watch. But here is some interesting info that suggests that Christopher Nolan has far from decided to direct the next Batman movie. Apparently his plan was for Heath Ledger to reprise his role of the Joker. Which makes a lot of sense given how things ended with the character in TDK. And supposedly Ledger's death really did a number on Nolan. The article goes on to say that as of now, there is no story for a third film at all. And that it might not even come out til 2013. So we can all pretty much forget about it for a while. That all said, if Nolan was to return for a third film. Would you rather he stick to his originally intended story arch and re-cast the Joker, or come up with something new?

Jordan said...

Extremely awkward clips from the first ever (and likely last) Joe Buck Show on HBO. The second clip is beyond uncomfortable. YIKES.

Mir said...

FUCK! I shipped my seasons 1 and 2 already. Mo fo'ing Lost rebate!

I could've 100% broke even on my upgrade to blu-ray.

Still waiting on the blu-rays to arrive cause my Amazon Prime membership expired and I was too stingy to pay for shipping.

Mir said...

If I was a big (bigger) time geek, I could just go buy season 1 from Best Buy then return it when it gets here.

Alirio said...

I won't be able to do the re-watch due to renovations in my basement... :-(

I WILL be at Comic Con next month... Anyone else?

PalmerEldritch said...

why the heck would someone have Artie Lang on their show if they DIDNT want him to do that? the dude's a homophobic trainwreck.

and why the heck would someone give Joe Buck his own talk show?!



alirio, i'll be there. gunna try to convince the ladyfriend to line up for LOST the night before. :)

ghostbusters: the video game is pretty good so far. only fifteen or twenty minutes in though. my aim blows.

/dont cross the streams

Jordan said...

Palmer, I think why would anyone give Joe Buck his own show is the better question. Seriously. The worst part is it's not just about sports and interviews. They also do skits. Way to go HBO. lol.

Wish I could go to ComicCon. Never been before. Would have been fun.

Kelly Jo said...

I've been working on this home work for the past few weeks.

Mr. Bill said...

I'm sure I'm late with this news but I just wanted to share.:)

Bravo's 'Top Chef Masters' Darlton guest star and the chefs create a meal inspired by 'Lost'.

Shepard's Pie maybe?

mb said...

Thank you Mr. Bill! I meant to post that over here as well. Totally pumped for it tonight!

mb said...

Wow - never paid attention to Artie Lange before and now I know why

Ralph- said...

Alirio, "you can count on me, meeting you, in the parking lot" - Keil

Stevi and I are heading back to the island in September. For those of you who have always looked for an excuse to go to Hawaii, we got Two roundtrip tickets and car rental for a not so whopping $637!!

Kelly Jo said...

Going to the Kevin Smith Carnagy Hall Q&A!

Stephanie said...

Is Artie Lange usually this rude?
Who the heck is Joe Buck?

mb said...

Excellent Ralph - perhaps you can team up w/Ryan and go infiltrate Lost productions sites :)
They should be shooting SOMETHING by then (if last year is any indication)

Ralph- said...

@ MB - :)
@ Steph - Joe Buck is a REALLY bland sports commentator.

Jordan said...

Yes. What Ralph said about Joe Buck, Steph.

And yes, Artie Lange is usually that rude.

mb said...

Kelly Jo - going to the Kevin Smith shindig? NICE! I was listening to the SMODcast where he mentioned it. I am jealous :)

Jordan said...

That should be a lot of fun Kelly Jo. Enjoy!

Just finished season 2 of Mad Men. Great show. Such a pleasure visually. Not to mention extremely compelling character work. Can't wait for season 3 in August!

t-dot kim said...

Mad Men is awesome. I love ALL the female characters, they're great. I think the show looks fantastic too. There are a few characters that I hate, simply hate and have few redeeming qualities. I'm also looking forward to season 3

t-dot kim said...

Kelly Jo, I'm super jealous. Kevin Smith is one of my favourite storytellers of all time. I love his podcast and his DVD specials.

How cool!

Ralph- said...


BOOBS
This show is worth checking out. Even if it is only average, i can count on the Eye Candy!! I know stevi is in love with Jon Hamm....as am i, i think he looks like my hero Hal Jordan

Jordan said...

I would say it it much more than average. And yes, Christina Hendrix isn't bad on the eyes.

Stephanie said...

Kim, were you underwhelmed by last night's performances? I suppose each routine can't top the one before but no one really stood out. I'm crushing on Ade, Max, Jason, Jonathan and of course Phillip. I'll be surprised if Kayla and Phillip aren't in the finals. I just realized there aren't as many hard core hip hoppers as last season.

scrdmnkydst said...

Does that mean you're adding more boyfriends to your list?

Also, be wary of Kim... she'll send you another 20 minute long message critiquing SYTYCD

Kelly Jo said...

Kevin Smith was awesome last night. I brought all of you in spirit.

PalmerEldritch said...

what? no love for Mrs. Draper? well, the actress anyhow.

gotta check out season two of Mad Men sometime once it finally comes out on DVD/Blu-ray.

Ralph- said...

scrdmnkydst: yes?

andrew. said...

- An Evening With Kevin Smith sounds like fun. Even though i'm not into his movies any more, Smodcast & the Evening Withs are very entertaining. You'll have to let us know where to look for you on the inevitable DVD.

- i had planned to do my LOST homework last night, while also slogging through the ton o' work i've got this month. Instead, Pittsburgh was hit with flash flooding everywhere, and i spent the night wet and stranded on a bus, and then home without power. So, I read by candle light and ate pierogies, just like Abraham Lincoln.

scrdmnkydst said...

Ralph-: pardon?

Stephanie said...

I was like Lincoln for about 10 minutes last night. Every time the power goes out I panic. The thought of having to sleep at night without air conditioning is horrifying.

ralph-, wrong answer. My fantasies only have room for Nathan Fillion and David Boreanaz.

Ugh! I finally saw Phillip and Jeanine's performance. So unbelievably boring. I don't care. I voted for him anyway.

andrew. said...

sam & dean are hurt Stephanie, really, really hurt.

PalmerEldritch said...

herlihy/scrdmnydst: ralph thought (or pretended) your comment about boyfriends to steph was to him since he said he something about John Hamm right before it.

what's up, blogspotica?

Stephanie said...

Ryan and I are continuing the conversation we recorded the other day. He's such a joy.

Jordan said...

Ok. So now that I'm caught up on Mad Men. What next? Here's what I'm considering. Most votes wins and I'll start watching.

Band of Brothers
Rome
Twin Peaks
Freddie
Generation Kill

andrew. said...

Band Of Brothers

Jordan said...

MMA reporter gets choked out by female fighter.

Oh, and that crazy chick is fighting everyone's favorite former American Gladiator, Gina Carano in a couple months.

Jordan said...

Tell me. Does that look staged? I can't tell. Seems legit. But wouldn't surprise me if it wasn't.

PalmerEldritch said...

Band of Brothers


what org is Gina Carano fightin' in now?

Jordan said...

I dunno what organization it is. But she is fighting that Cyborg chick in August on Showtime.

Stephanie said...

Band of Brothers.

scrdmnkydst said...

Aww Steph called me a joy.

I have to completely agree.

t-dot kim said...

Steph, the only dance I REALLY enjoyed was Ade and Melissa. The rest were good/very good. After last night's show I thought Phillip and Jeanine were going home...

...America got it wrong this week.

t-dot kim said...

Herlihy,

You didn't care for my critique?

scrdmnkydst said...

hahah! no kim, i enjoyed it! i just thought that it was hilarious! you sounded more excited about SYTYCD than almost any episode of Lost you've done!

ooh. idea. next season of ANTM we must do a podcast with steph about it.

Kelly Jo said...

-Andrew sadly they will not be releasing it on DVD or as a Smodcast

Jordan said...

Not that I think it looks any good. But Year One is getting ripped by critics so far. Currently has a 17% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Jordan said...

Trailer for YET ANOTHER Martin Scorsese/Leo Dicaprio team up.
Shutter Island

Jordan said...

Seriously. The two dudes are in love with each other. This is the 4th Scorsese film Dicaprio has been in (The Departed, The Aviator, Gangs of New York). And if that's not enough, they are planning on buddying up yet again for a film about Teddy Roosevelt. I ain't complaining or nothing. As they're both more than solid. Just, get a room already. lol.

Stephanie said...

Jordan, Leo is Marty's new Bobby Deniro. When I heard about the awesome cast I was really excited about Shutter Island. But after seeing the trailer, not so much. Not interested in seeing Scorsese do horror. And after being in love with Leo all this time, I think I might be bored with him. Either I'm realizing he's not the great actor I thought he was or he's not as good as he once was. He's always Leo to me these days.

Stephanie said...

Kim, seriously, Kayla and Max in the bottom three? America are idiots. I hate Kupono's guts. I see what Mary was saying about him in the beginning. He's too feminine or soft or something. Ugh! Ashley is so beautiful. It's too bad she was stuck with him.
It's a good thing Phillip has such a huge following or he and Jeanine would have been in danger.
It's funny. You can tell Phillip is popular by googling each contestant. You can find more on him than anyone else.

PalmerEldritch said...

"Jordan, Leo is Marty's new Bobby Deniro. ... Either I'm realizing he's not the great actor I thought he was or he's not as good as he once was. He's always Leo to me these days."

just like Bob DeNiro nowadays. OH SNAP!




Cyborg is scary. i fear for our beloved Crush.

Mir said...

I am LOST.

What happened to the K & A hiatus podcast (promoted on Twitter)?

Also, what review is Herls talking about? Was there already a Re-watch show?

Stephanie said...

Mir, do I follow you on twitter? I'm stephsmith. Ryan and I recorded the other day. Kim sent a mini-podcast on SYTYCD for me to play on my show. It's quit epic.:)

Jordan said...

I'm worried too Palmer. I'm surprised she agreed to fight that woman. Let's hope she's training really hard for this one. Actually, Cyborg is more Ivan Drago than Apollo Creed. So I guess this training montage would be more appropriate.

Jordan said...

So I watched the first ep of Band of Brothers last night. Ross was a real dick. Man are there are ton of familiar faces in the cast. Even if they aren't as well known as some, it's like, "I don't know where I know that guy from, but his face is familiar."

PalmerEldritch said...

set up.

Stephanie said...

Dirty Kablammo!

I watched an episode of Twin Peaks last night. The music was too much. Distracting but otherwise wonderfully cinematic.

Jordan said...

Ka-boingo!!

Stephanie said...

I'm moving in with Jordan.

Jordan said...

Note to self. Remember to refresh page before posting numerically specific posts!

Jordan said...

That's the hospital where I was born!

And you know what, Steph? Works been slow of late. I could use a roommate to help with rent. The place ain't too big. But I got a futon!

Jordan said...

Aw man. Why don't I have a Wii?

Grey's Anatomy video game

The hilarious part is I thought it was a fake game they were mocking. But no, it's real. Hahaha.

JamieB_UK said...

Anyone else in the UK see Matthew Fox on Jonathan Ross. Didn't talk too much about Lost, but the interview was pretty funny, especially how he basically got the piss taken out of him the whole time.

mb said...

RE: the Kevin Smith Carnegie Hall Q&A

"sadly they will not be releasing it on DVD or as a Smodcast"

:( dammit



How is it that there is no thread on the boards for SYTYCD? Don't get me wrong - I don't mind the talk here, but I just noticed that.

And speaking of the boards - HOLLI - get yer Top Chef-lovin' self over to the Top Chef Masters thread - I (and Herlihy - I'll just assume ;)) want to hear what you think about the show.

Ralph- said...

Jordan, that girl should be cast as Thor!

scrdmnkydst said...

Assume away, MB.

I've not seen it yet though. I should be watching soon.

andrew. said...

- listened to the 1st half of the newest Confessions Of An Internet Addict. Great as always. I do hope you know that I was only teasing with my comments about 'milking it'.

scrdmnkydst said...

I really enjoyed Steph's Buffy CIA podcasts. Shame there's not any more Buffy for her to work on.

I'd LOVE for Steph to do a True Blood podcast though. omg i love that show.

Stephanie said...

Andrew, I'm just afraid the audience to get bored with the Buffy talk. Then again, who cares? It's not like this is important.

Ryan, that pornography? This is going to be kick-ass.

scrdmnkydst said...

Pornography?

What?

Where?

I'm confused.

Also, that film looks amazing.

t-dot kim said...

Mir,

The podcast Aimee and I did...well, let's just say that it might just stay LOST. We recorded a podcast--then half of the audio was LOST. So...I don't know...We didn't really talk about anything special. Just about the Lost Re-watch schedule, etc.

Speaking of the Lost Re-Watch... is in it's first week. I'm in between episodes right now. When do y'all want to sit around and talk about it?

JoeSC said...

Kim, I'm always down for talking LOST!

BTW, just got back from seeing "Drag Me to Hell" and all I can say is wow!

Sam Rami did an amazing job. The score, set design and special effects were some of the best I've seen in a horror movie in a long time.

I think it's nearly on par with Evil Dead... I'd love to see Raimi ditch Spiderman and focus on more on movies like these again!

Sonny aka sunloc said...

kim pick a date and time and I'll be there.

t-dot kim said...

OK...for those who want to talk about some LOST. Sunday June 21st (today) and 7pm EST--4pm PST, let's meet up on ustream, and we can discuss some LOST.

You can find the link on the mainpage of this site.

t-dot kim said...

Oh....

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there!!! :D

mb said...

If i wasn't doing fathers day stuff, I would love 2 join u guys. Can't wait to hear what people think.

PalmerEldritch said...

happy father's day, blogspotica!

PalmerEldritch said...

good morning, blogspotica. haven't had a chance to do my The Lost Re-watch homework yet. oops!

hopefully, i'll start in tonight.
