I saw Star Trek over the weekend. I thought it was a fun, refreshing “reboot” of the Trek franchise. I could get into what I liked and disliked about the movie and its plot, but I’m not a movie review blog, I’d be hard pressed to talk about that without spoilers, and there are plenty … Continue reading Star Treking across the J.J.-verse
In which I briefly emerge as an extreme LOST nerd
It is no secret that I am a fan of Lost. In fact, I have a whole blog category devoted to the show. Most of my Lost fan-ness is passively listening to podcasts, including The Lost Podcast with Jay and Jack, The Transmission, and I was recently (re-)introduced to Delta Park Gets Lost. I don’t … Continue reading In which I briefly emerge as an extreme LOST nerd

Forcing iTunes to automatically download TV shows (or, the magic of crontab)
In the past two weeks, I have experienced nothing but heartbreak and letdown with regard to BitTorrent. Most things I download, I am perfectly content with accessing them a day or two later, but LOST is my big show. I have to watch it that very night.

My LOST Predictions
These are my predictions for the season finale Lost. They don’t come from spoilers or secret information, they’re just guesses and intuition and are probably wrong. * The episode will end with Jin in some kind of perilous situation to save Sun. Sun and the other Oceanic 6 will believe him to be dead. Even … Continue reading My LOST Predictions
That thing? On the television and internets tonight? Was that an episode of Alias? Or was that an episode of Lost? Posted in:
Moving pictures with synchronized sound
A few TV/Movie thoughts while I’m waiting on replacement clutch cylinders… To use a quote/show-title from coffejedi, I was pleasantly surprised by the “River Tam Beats Up Everyone” show (also known as “Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles.” I was expecting it to be a crappy SciFi show melded with a crappy action show, but really … Continue reading Moving pictures with synchronized sound
We drove past the Oceanic Airlines billboard in Portland today. It’s on Division at Grand/MLK. Because we had things to do, I was not able to stop and get a picture, but I grabbed the following image from the DarkUFO Lost blog: The link is to http://www.flyoceanicair.com/, which leads to http://www.find815.com/, the ongoing ARG. The … Continue reading Fly Oceanic
It looks like the new LOST website stuff is now live. It’s not quite an ARG, not quite a game, not quite a story. Finding and solving things unlock video clips that provide more information. I’m certainly going to be following. Posted in:
