Can't wait to hear some TLI goodness.

JonFromNKY said...

I need to brush up on my season 5.

Alirio said...

TLI!!!!! Yeah bitches!!!

Jordan said...

What up peoples?! Just got in to San Diego. It's gorgeous here. Warm and sunny in mid-November? What?! Thanks to Palmer and Holli for the tips. I'm just about to go off and get lost and will keep an eye out for the places you mentioned. Spent the last 3 days in Phoenix staying with friends. A whole ton of craziness. I think I went Friday night through Sunday night never once sobering up. Oh, how I love traveling. Nice win for your Bengals yesterday, Jon. Went into Pitt and totally took it Andrew.'s Steelers. That was impressive. Ok, off to beach. Take it easy blogspot.

Jordan said...

And MB, Don't worry. Consider it done.

andrew. said...

- worst parent/guardian
- most creative use of a prop
- 2nd to Frank, coolest guy award

- i would like to protest the idea that the Bengals were impressive yesterday. It was a punt return & a trading of field goals. It was a terrible football game that the Steeler brought more stink to.

- speaking of stink. There were a lot of ways that i might have imagined the Prisoner remake could go wrong, but i never would have predicted that it would be so incoherently awful. wow trainwreck. no wonder AMC is burning the whole thing off in 3 consecutive nights.

- In positive news, Fargo gets better every time i see it.

memphish said...

I watched the 60 Minutes dinosaur story (much hyped during weekend football), and it featured this woman. She completely reminded me of flashback Juliet, especially lab-coat wearing flashback Juliet.

Holli

JonFromNKY said...

I know what you mean Andrew, I mean if I were the defending Super Bowl champs, and I got pushed around by a team as crappy as the Bungals (twice) I'd think it was a bad game too.










WHO DEY BITCHES!

JonFromNKY said...

I like LOST.

Jordan said...

Good recommendation on the fish tacos at Rubio's, Holli. Thank you from the bottom of my gut.

Only one day here so far, but SD is pretty awesome. I'm kicking myself for not going to a comic con the last couple years. Even though there won't be any LOST, I still just might come one of these times. I can imagine it would be pretty fun.

memphish said...

You're welcome Jordan. I've tried many a fish taco, but none is ever as good as the Rubio's original.

Holli

memphish said...

Happy Birthday Ryan!

Holli

Ah man, I thought we had a new TLI.

Fish tacos has got to be the worst sounding thing I've ever heard.

Jordan, come to Comic Con and hang out with me. And Morgan.

Happy Birthday, Ryan.

PalmerEldritch said...

happy birthday, ryan! :D

KA-bLAMO!

PalmerEldritch said...

sweet lord. that's a brilliant idea.

Stephanie said...

Are you well again, palmer?

mb said...

AH the losties. :)

They are my wake up call every year that I'd better record SOMETHING.

Bummed Andrew disliked the Prisoner, it is sitting on my DVR waiting for me (haven't watched any yet). The last two are tonight right?

REALLY hoping the Deuce is better and can go back to school tomorrow - today marks his 10th day of sickness - GOD DAYUM. But all his illnesses this year mean he will grow up to be a super-immune hero right? Ugh. The Ace has stayed completely healthy through mine, my wife's, and the Deuce's illnesses, so I hope that a sign of things to come for him in the future.
Gonna pop over to the boards and see who else has watched the Doctor Who special from Sunday.

PalmerEldritch said...

i'm still somewhat sick. luckily, it's just a cold and a sore throat. i think. i hope.

the gal pal has missed two days of work so far. hopefully, she'll feel better soon!

we went to a 3 year old's birthday party and were surrounded by little kids and their little kid germs.

hope the Deuce is feeling beter soon. 10 freakin' days? ack!!

just got Assassin's Creed 2 today. which i am pretty excited for despite the fact that everything having to do with hanging out with Kristen Bell in the future really sucked in the first game. here's hoping the good outweighs the bad.

ack! future assassin's creed guy is voiced by Nolan North so i'm just gunna think about how awesome Uncharted 2 was. weird.

scrdmnkydst said...

The historian in Assassin's Creed II is voiced by Danny Wallace, who is not only a very funny man but he found 54 men named Dave Gorman, formed his own cult (not as sinister as it sounds), started his own country in his flat, said yes to every thing (the book he wrote on this was very loosely retold in Yes Man with Jim Carrey), did a nice thing every day for a year and went to the centre of the universe.

He also does some tv stuff and is quite funny.

ramble ramble.

Losties! I wonder how many hours I can spend working on this tomorrow at work... better make a spreadsheet.

Also gotta share my John Locke Halloween badassery.

mb said...

UN......F**KING.....BELIEVABLE!!!!!

The Deuce just saw the doctor to check that his current virus (He had the flu last week which was followed now by Coxsackie) and he now has contracted Strep throat (probably from me last week). That's 3 illnesses in 2 weeks folks. Anyone beat that? I personally can't. At least this is now bacterial and we can easily kill it.

Dear All-human-illness-causing-things - LEAVE MY CHILD ALONE GODDAMMIT! Fuck w/me first cowards!



/sleep-deprived father is done ranting against the microbes now

JonFromNKY said...

I feel for you MB. The first 2 years my kid was alive were the sickest 2 years of 'our' lives. Hope he gets well soon.

JoeSC said...

Ahhhh... I love awards season!

I don't know if I could make an decent decision without a proper rewatch, though.

I smell HOMEWORK!

PalmerEldritch said...

brad, that's awesome. very cool.

mb, wtf?! if i hear about any germs going after your kids, i will kick their asses. get better, deuce!

and, tomorrow night, i will catch up on doctor who.

Stephanie said...

Please explain why hanging out with Kristin Bell in the future sucks?
Morgan has been watching some losers online play left for dead and now want the game. I'm scared. She's finished Arkham Asylum and is ready for something new.

Kyle from Kentucky said...

the 5th column says hello........YES

good lord how hot is anna and her daughter. shew...Elizabeth looked damn good in her shorts at the very beginning of the episode to

I wonder how long it will be before Father Jack leaves the cloth and makes out with Erica.

PalmerEldritch said...

in assassin's creed 1, most of the game takes place in Crusades-era Holy Land (, the) where you are a mega bad ass assassin running around, climbing shit like it aint no thing, and killing the fuck out of people. but, just enough to majorly piss you off, you get pulled back to the future every once in a while and then kristen bell refuses to answer your questions and the only thing you can do is walk real slowly back and forth between your cell and a magic chair. which is a marked contrast from the fun part of the game.

mb said...

Thanks Jon and Palmer! Palmer, what did you come down with? Maybe it's the same germs, because I hear these f-ing microbes are like Al-Qaida and have cells everywhere.


/hello.......check 1......(tap tap)

Chris JC said...

Haven't been able to afford the season 5 box so far this year (remember they release it here early so we don't just import the region 1 version) so may have to peruse my old method of watching season 5.

Wondering if I should limber up the voice for a voicemail call.

Alirio said...

MB,

If The Deuce gets some anti-biotics make sure you feed that child some yogurt with active cultures to counter-act the negative side-effects of the medicine.

Bonne chance,
Alirio

memphish said...

Bacon is better than love.

Holli

scrdmnkydst said...

Ghostwatch: Coast to Coast

Chris JC said...

Ghostwatch: Crotch to Crotch, non?

Also - The Deuce...School? How old is that kid now, MB?

mb said...

Alirio - thank you for that advice. We indeed have heeded that advice for ourselves as well (as my wife and I both have had strep throat in the last month). Just picked myself up a big tub of peach yogurt the other day - love that stuff :) Good call.

Chris - I say school, I really mean daycare. For some reason my wife and I seem to use "daycare" and "school" interchangeably. Probably b/c the kids just call it school.

Chris JC said...

That's cool - I realised it hadn't been long enough for that kind of school but of course in my mind he's still about two months old and is just laying around at home bundled up in stuff.

Alirio said...

Nicolas ( I mean @minimichaelcera) calls daycare work.

Ahh to be 3 years old again...

PalmerEldritch said...

alirio, that's funny stuff. hope he gets a paycheck for it!

LOST commercials on ye olde television. good stuff.

/KA-BLAMO!!!

memphish said...

Just scored free tickets to Fantastic Mr. Fox. A great way, I hope, to kick off Thanksgiving.

Holli

andrew. said...

- nice Holli. i'm looking forward to Mr. Fox. i love stop motion animation & as much as i've enjoyed The Corpse Bride & Coraline, i love the tactile artifacts of the old-school methods.

memphish said...

Happy Birthday Mr. Bill!

Holli

mb said...

Happy birthday Mr. Bill!

and

Happy belated Bday to Ryan - missed it - sorry!

PalmerEldritch said...

feliz cumpleanos, senor bill!

saw the latest Dr Who last night. may find time to weigh in on it over at the BBS later today.

scrdmnkydst said...

Thanks for all the birthday wishes! I've been busy as hell so not had that much time to thank everyone, but a special thanks to Holli, who said happy birthday to me on four different sites. Now that is dedication.

Oh, and i was bought season 1-5 of Lost on dvd. Amazing.

memphish said...

Thanks for noticing Ryan. I've only hit 3 for Mr. Bill so far. Gotta Twitter him too.

Holli

scrdmnkydst said...

HRNK

Lost Season 6 is premiering on Tuesday 2nd February.

According to the official facebook page anyways.

memphish said...

Lost returns 2/2/10 at 9 pm. Tuesdays at 9 pm is the airtime.

Holli

memphish said...

Just beat me Ryan. It's all over Twitter too.

Holli

memphish said...

Someone on Twitter figured out LOST comes back on Groundhog Day. Is that a clue about where we're going?

Holli

scrdmnkydst said...

Also it looks like Frank, Ilana and Richard have been promoted to proper full time cast members as well.

JoeSC said...

Holli -

I really like the Groundhog Day theory. That was the first thing I thought when I saw the date. It does make for a fun discussion, but I'm sure it's purely coincidental.

Regardless, the excitement is already starting to build and I wish the Season 5 Blu-Ray would get here sooner so I can start my "Losties" rewatch!

I think we need to get a countdown clock on the SaS main page. Any takers?

PalmerEldritch said...

hmmm... i really need to refresh my season 5 memories e-mailing my suggestions for the LOSTies.

anyone remember what happened in season 5?

Chris JC said...

Wasn't it the zombie season?

scrdmnkydst said...

I thought season 6 was going to be the zombie season

Jordan said...

Hey blog people. Whut is goin on? I'm now in Minneapolis, where it is about 30 degrees colder than it was in SD and Phoenix. Yay, fun times.

So how's tv been the past week? Have I missed anything good? Did V continue it's downward spiral? Thurs night comedies actually funny?

Now that we have a definite start date for LOST, somebody needs to create one of those countdown clocks that says how many days, hrs, min left and put it on the main blogspot page. Anyone know the coding to do that?

memphish said...

Jordan, and everyone else, you need to add this location to your roadtrip. NSFW language.

I haven't watched the latest V or Flash Forward. The Hubby and I haven't had any together TV time this week, and won't as far as I can see 'til post Thanksgiving. Given that there's just 2 of each left until after Xmas I don't really feel the need to rush into them.

Holli

JonFromNKY said...

Another lost 'numbers' coincidence with me.

9/22 - The crash date (my b-day)
325 - The bearing (my number at work)

now 02/02 - The final season premiere date (day I found out I was going to be a daddy)

I'm going to Dagobah for vacation now. Thanks Holli.

Jordan, Community was pretty funny last night. Haven't seen V yet. My DVR is on overload.

I think I've got a couple of my Lostie picks ready. Need to watch a few more episodes from S05.

memphish said...

How did I not know this was in the works?

Holli

t-dot kim said...

Hey Peeps. What have I missed over the past few months? It's time to get back into blogger mode. LOST is a few months away...

...plus I've 100% slacked off podcasting this hiatus.

t-dot kim said...

Who has a blackberry pin#?

You can send yours to: thelostinitiative@gmail.com

Thank you :P

scrdmnkydst said...

The extras on the season 5 dvds are a bit lame.

I've not found any of the easter eggs yet though.

memphish said...

Here's the list of Easter Eggs.

Holli

scrdmnkydst said...

I love you Holli.

mb said...

"...plus I've 100% slacked off podcasting this hiatus

PODCAST EPISODES SINCE MAY:
Kim & Aimee = 3
MB = 0
(+not a single SPLOG post since Aug. 27th)

you got nothin on my slackdom ;)

I keep forgetting to share a super cool thing my friend did for my birthday. She sent me a pizza (2 actually). True - from Chicago no less. She actually lives in Seattle, but you can go to Gino's East of Chicago's website and have a pizza shipped (minimum of 2 actually) wherever. They put them on dry ice and ship 'em out.

Nothing is like eating Gino's East pizza AT Gino's East, but man this tasted so f-ing good. Anyone ever heard, smelled or tasted something that transported you somewhere else. This totally did it. God damn I love that pizza. I don't expect most others would have quite the same reaction as I do (as it brings up warm fuzzy childhood memories for me), but I recommend it without hesitation. The DOWNSIDE (if this wasn't a gift) - NOT cheap. The LEAST you're going to spend for 2 pizzas is $54 + $20 shipping - so that's two $37 pizzas!

I have a great friend :)

I also scored a Blu-Ray player - w00t! Trying to decide what my first Blu-Ray purchase will be. Didn't someone here report that the Blu-Ray discs of Season 1 (or was it another season?) had fewer features that the regular DVDs? What to do, what to do...

JonFromNKY said...

MB, don't know if you're a Trek fan, but the new Star Trek on Blu Ray is awesome.

JonFromNKY said...

Aimee have you heard this and if so, I'm sorry

andrew. said...

- nice pics Sonny. i have to wait for the DVDs & a quick Season 5 rewatch before i can decide. shit, need to order those DVDs. I did finally decide that i could live without the VHS tape & patches.

- this last week was pretty strong for television. Fringe & Supernatural both had big episodes. The Curb Your Enthusiasm finale was pretty, pretty, pretty good. Dexter had some surprises. V is chugging along, a little bland but not offensive. Always Sunny In Philadelphia was good. I just need to catch up on Venture Bros

- my friends are making me crazy, saying they really enjoyed The Prisoner. So i've downloaded all of it and i'm going to make myself watch it again. i don't think i was wrong, but i'll try to give it a fair shake again.

- LOST.

t-dot kim said...

MB, I've also got Blu-Ray player. (A PS3, actually) I really didn't know what I was missing. Watching regular DVDs/TV isn't the same...

I think I'm going to get LOST on Blu-Ray too.

BTW, Supernatural has been friggin' awesome of late. The "TV episode" was hilarious. I watch it over and over again just to see the opening credit sequence. TV shows need more cheesy jingles.

DWTS...anyone?
SYTYCD? Steph? Holli?

Ryan...ANTM. The right girl won.

scrdmnkydst said...

omg you're so right kim. Nicole winning totally made up for Allison not winning last year.

memphish said...

I'm watching SYTYCD, but not loving it. I hate Mollee as much as I hated Juliet in S3. She annoys the snot out of me and Nigel is just blowing out his ass for ratings when he sings her praises. The only one I really like is Jakob.

Holli

memphish said...

The Office ends via The Onion so don't freak out Kelly Jo.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

holli, that article is pretty funny.

what's up, gang? blu-rays are neat-o burrito. want the District 9 and the Star Trek blu-rays this winter.

Jordan said...

MB, All your talk about Gino's has made me really hungry. And seeing as how I'm currently in Chicago, I just might make a visit. :P

mb said...

AH Jordan - you lucky bastard. Say hello to my hometown for me and TOTALLY GO and chow down.

/BTW - I think you can call ahead and order if you don't want to wait the 45+ mins it can sometimes take to get your pizza normally - (312) 266 DEEP (3337) is the one @162 E. Superior St. AND I think they've got a lunch special (mini pizza + soup/salad + drink) from 11-2pm.

mb said...

Jon - I was just saying to my wife that I think I might go for Star Trek and/or the Dark Knight on BluRay. Thanks for the tip!

Sonny aka sunloc said...

MB you have to get Dark Knight, iron man, star trek, i used to have a blueray player but someone stole it from my house, have i had alot of blueray dvds, Dark Knight, iron man and i only had season 3 of lost they looked so good, suck cant watch star trek in hd, guess i have to wait until christmas getting a new hdtv and a ps3.

scrdmnkydst said...

Some random Lost podcast just tried following me on Twitter. NO, I ONLY LIKE KIM AND AIMEE.

Stephanie said...

I'm still super excited for SYTYCD. I still love Russell and Legacy. Jakob is the obvious leader though.

t-dot kim said...

LOL... thanks Herlihy :P

Holli & Steph, I think Jakob is head and shoulders above everyone else.

Really no one is watching DWTS?? Mya & Dmitri are going to take it tonight!!!

PalmerEldritch said...

marie didn't win so donny had better win or the osmonds only have seven more chances to take the championship!!!!!!

nah, i want Mya to win. i saw ten minutes of it last night which brings my total viewing to 12 minutes this season. but Mya had better win cuz i don't like Osbornes or Osmonds.

scrdmnkydst said...

Kelly Osbourne looks like a mouldy potato. True fact.

Also, Sarah Jessica Parker and Robert Pattinson must be related as they both have a foot for a face.

t-dot kim said...

I prefer Sarah Jessica Parker over Robert Pattinson. (Seriously, I don't get why all those kiddies love him--but, I don't think it's his fault because was told to act that way in these crazy Twilight movies)

The Dark Knight was the first blu-ray I bought. It was GREAT!

JonFromNKY said...

Don't have any opinion on the reality shows. I just can't get into them. Besides, the best reality show ever is still COPS.

Kyle from Kentucky said...

Come on now. not Father Jack! shit..

scrdmnkydst said...

DRINK!

No one who hasn't seen Father Ted will get the reference.

anyways. When's the deadline for the Losties? I've not even started rewatching season 5 yet.

Stephanie said...

Did I read ABC is stopping production on Flash Forward?

We have to wait 4 months to see if he survives and to see if she's going to give birth to a lizard?

Stephanie said...

Blogspot, what do I want Santa to bring me? Do I everything I need and want. I guess I need money for Comic Con '10.

Sonny aka sunloc said...

scrdmnkydst my mom loves Father Ted i seen only parts of it looks funny, Kyle i know Father Jack, my jaw hit the ground when that happen and what do the V's was with Tyler? I'm thinking anna whats him that girl pregnant, and fight club just came out on blueray i want so bad.

Jordan said...

Spoilers, people!

Steph, do you mean FF or V being shut down? Cuz V has been for quite some time. Returns in march I think. Along with a new showrunner, as the last one was sacked.

Stephanie said...

Flash Forward isn't canceled. They're just taking a break.

Happy Thanksgiving! (Unless you don't live in the United States, in which case Happy Fourth Thursday in November!)

.. and I've always wondered why the blog postings are in Anchorage Alaska time? It's 0650 here and I'm sure it will come up 0350 when I post this message. It's a right wing conspiracy involving Sara Palin.

scrdmnkydst said...

what are yams?

Stephanie said...

I call yams by the name sweet potatoes. I like em cooked like this.

PalmerEldritch said...

yams aren't sweet potatoes! sweet potatoes aren't yams!!!!


but we like to refer to Sweet Potatoes as Yams for some dumb ass reason. and label them that way in the supermarket. probably some marketing "genius" somewhere who thought that sweet potatoes and potatoes might be too confusing. damn you, don draper!

they look (and taste?) alike though.

anyhow, HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! w00t!

scrdmnkydst said...

Pecans and marshmallows with sweet potatoes?

YOU PEOPLE ARE WEIRD.

Stephanie said...

What the hell do you people eat?

scrdmnkydst said...

black pudding, haggis and sweet breads mostly.
