Entries for February 2008


This week is sort of short and probably a little weak because I can't find too much to say without nitpicking.  I thought it was a good episode that kept incredibly busy, and spent a lot of time focusing on one of the most compelling characters of the run so far. I'll take lackluster Notes and a strong episode any day. LOST, Episode 4.05 The Constant I. Billy Pilgrim   Desmond   A.  There might not be a more leisurely military force than the Scottish arm...

Andy Kaufman.  That is all!

This week: Kate Austen, Babynapper in Eggtown. LOST, Episode 4.04 Eggtown   I. Raising Aaron-zona   A. Past, present or future, Kate’s story is about as compelling as drying cement.  What a shock, she’s back in handcuffs!  Who would have guessed?!  And she ran away from the Island!  And now she’s a babynapper!  So many harrowing twists and turns that I never saw coming!  There might have been a little suspense...

I like wrestling. No, not Olympic style. I’m talking pro wrestling in all of its gaudy splendor. And I should amend that to “I used to like wrestling.” I grew up in south Louisiana in the belly of the Mid-South/UWF territory and Bill Watts’ simple, brilliant and effective booking ruined me for everyone else, so to speak. I really can’t watch the WWE McMahonopoly. They’ve completely thrown out the morality plays that are supposed to drive the whole thing. I...

It’s Dave Grohl and Will Ferrell covering Stevie Nicks. Come on! That’s classic.

Wrestlemania 2000 Picks The Oscars

Back in college, I briefly had the editorial reins of the entertainment section in an alternative (read: unpopular) campus paper. One of my few accomplishments was an Oscar prediction article pitting our resident film critics up against Wrestlemania 2000, the old then-WWF game for Nintendo 64. It was supposed to be a stupid gimmick, something I have built a reputation on over the years. But then Wrestlemania 2000 went 5-for-5 and blew our “experts” out of the water. Ever since,...

 Nothing simultaneously amuses and infuriates me more than when W. or someone from his circle describes someone or something else as "irresponsible." This from a guy who's presided over an unprecedented growth of the U.S. government, run up record deficits (as part of an also unprecedented transfer of wealth to the upper 1% of the country), led us into one unnecessary war while largely neglecting another potentially purposeful conflict (Afghanistan-Bin Laden), and basically put us back...

This week: Sayid prefers TIME Magazine to The Economist. LOST, Episode 4.03 The Economist  I. Sayid And My Perfectly Healthy And Completely Heterosexual Man-Crush  A. When does one get good at golf after spending a lifetime in the Republican guard?  Had Sayid been logging a lot of hours at Hurley’s makeshift course that we didn’t know about?  If he taught himself how to play just to set this Italian sucker up, you’d think he could h...

Let’s get this out of the way. I’m as guilty as anyone else, but is it any wonder the rest of the world hates us? That was my “medium” drink at lunch. How in the bloody blue hell did a 32 ounce soft drink become medium? When I was a kid it took a special trip to 7-11 to get a Big Gulp if you wanted a beverage that size. Seriously. Is anyone that naturally thirsty? In our rush to convenience have we completely lost our common sense? That much soda at one sitting can&rs...
