The Lost Blog

Post Your Favorite Lost Blog Lines

By DavidRH

Editor's Note: Lost Blog regular DavidRH came up with an interesting idea for these long summer months: a "contest" to find the best comments from past Lost Blog conversations. The winner will earn one season's worth of "Always Last" privileges and a no-expense-paid trip to a mystical tropical island. Take it away David ...

Somewhere in the first month of Season Two, I stumbled onto Mac's Lost blog. I didn't post all that often, but enjoyed all the banter between Mac and the assorted bloggers. When Season Three started, Mac's blog was one of the Thursday highlights.

Following Mac's analysis, I loved reading comments from guys and gals like Trinity, Joe Pike, RamsomJackson, GatorGal, Sillygirl0630, bcre8ve -- a moniker that I didn't figure out how to pronounce until about half way thru the season, but one whom I can always count on for "creative" posts -- Dakota, Vikki, Mr. Grimm, Crispy Seaplanes, Pieces of Arzt, ButchM, and Mhausen11 -- who, of course, was so inspired by Hurley's stammering retort to Sawyer, that he changed his name to "Red . . Neck . . Man" in the blink of a Tricia Tanaka eye one day!

Admittedly, what I enjoyed the most was not the "weighty stuff" ... because, let's face it, we were all guessing all the time, but rather I was drawn to the innate comedy with which many addressed the plot twists and turns. Of course, there's the "other" side of the coin ... wow, you'd think we were discussing the ramifications of America's foreign policy since 1917. Some folk's posts were always "deep-thinking-life-or-death-VERY-SERIOUS" discourse. Whew!

Now, don't get me wrong, the discussion of each week's plot was certainly central to the blog day in and day out ... But as the week wore on, a certain climate of irritation with those around us started showing itself in ambient ways . . .

"You can always tell when it's getting toward Tuesday/Wednesday ... other than by looking at the calendar ... People start to get a little snippy and start critiquing other people's posts instead of coming up with goofy-ass theories and questions."
→ Posted by: ransomjackson

And you can be sure, some member of the "family of Mac" quickly pounced upon such "critical outburst" from an errant poster: With humor. .

"Looks like someone's been drinking the 'Hater-aide'!!"

Or a more "Dramatic Exclamation":

‘Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh'
→ Both posted by: Red...Neck...Man

OR. For the less sensitive: Sarcasm. .

"Really, there's a guy sitting in the chair? I wish someone in the previous 362 posts would have brought that up... "
→ Posted by: Gitmo

Sometimes the simplest response is the best:

"@263 marty: here wats d story wit jak sayn go up and see if my father is more wasted dan i am ?? isnt his da dead like nd dat was supposed 2 b in the future ? any thoughts ??"

"...um... I'd like to buy a vowel" → 348. Posted by: bcre8ve

Of course, new trails in foreign languages were constantly being posted . . not counting the guy who was a "Canadain" . . eh? . .

"BTW, En Provence: Vous habitez en provence?" :)
→ Posted by: Trinity

"I don't think I've ever experienced 'schadenfreude' with as much clarity "
→ Posted by: Deep Cover

DRAMATIC EXCLAMATION:
"Schadenfreude? Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh"
→ Posted by: Red...Neck...Man

(OK. I made that one up.)

After Mac was able to add "counters" to the blog, there was A MAJOR STROKE OF OBSERVATIONAL GENIUS posted concerning a numerological phenomena. Talk about one dude with super sharp eyes!

"Congratulations to the following:

As every episode rolls by, new voices have been added to the conversational tumult - Clementine, SeaKay, BunnyLover, Hurling, Alaïs_Longthought , and Markthefish. But we DO have our share of SCHOLARLY DEEP THINKERS also. Let's face it, one day we've just tooling along with the blog - talkin'bout Kate, talkin'bout Charlie, talkin'bout smokie – and OUT OF NOWHERE COMES:

" ‘Schroedinger's cat' was a thought experiment of a German physicist to illustrate the principles of quantum mechanics. Suppose, Schroedinger said, we place a cat in a box with a device that detects the decay of a radioactive atom, which decay is exactly 50% probable ... "

Huh?

On the other hand, a few of us just state the obvious - Even when it's a little abstract:

"Locke has to be the world's greatest fly through the air and land on his back actor in history."

DRAMATIC EXCLAMATION:
"I just snarfed my coffee."
→ Posted by: mac

Lately, we've been joined by some fairly verbose and intellectually gifted writers like FenwayBen, DesertRat, Prosecutor67, and DocH, whose discourse on the "Jacob-Theory" was written in such pure "Turabian dissertational perfection" that I'm convinced he is probably the President of Yale and has joined our blog under an assumed identity . . .

Welcome Mr. President!

Or not.

So I've been ruminating on - not the topics discussed - but rather the writers who are doing the discussing. Every week, someone kicks in with their favorite "Sawyerism" - and on every episode there are dozens of nominees for best line in the show. But hold on, kids - Those are PROFESSIONAL WRITERS and of course, they're coming up with witty barbs for our resident "BadBoy" to spit out ...

But here -- on Mac's blog -- we manage to entertain each other with some pretty witty lines ourselves! Lines that deserve a second time around and some kind of SPECIAL RECOGNITION from the group as a whole. Come on, admit it, we have some VERY FUNNY BLOGGERS IN OUR MIDST!

All this to say that we have a whole lot of ammunition here for TWO probable "end of the season" contests. HOWEVER, one of the possibilities - which I choose to call "Most Annoying and Overused Phrases Competition" - is just TOO EASY! Even my lame brain can come up with a "Top Ten" on that front:

However, as a disclaimer: Two of the "most annoying and overused phrases" did not make MY top ten because they are "CLASSICS" and deserve their own SPECIAL PLACE in Mac-blog history.

"We're gonna need a bigger boat"

and

"Anybody notice the picture . . "

One has been around since the very first season and has, to my count, had 49 permutations in just THIS current season. And the second was responsible for creating mass exasperation of such immense proportions throughout 333 consecutive episode posts, that there was trepidation even in the heart of our fearless leader:

"I sense a storm brewing, so before this gets out of control: YES! The prior has a photo of the oracle on his desk . . . "
→ Posted by: mac - with 7 (count' em, seven) followups!

Davidrh's Most Annoying And Overused Top Ten:

10. "First?"
(Except when posted by meg. She gets a "pass"! Just because MIF.)

9. Any mention of "purgatory", "Space-Time" or the phrase, "Probably over-analyzing, but ..."

8. "First time poster, long time reader ... I have a few theories that I want to share ..."
And then writes ALL their theories in ONE long run-on, unpunctuated sentence, utilizing poor grammar, incorrect contractions, 3,476 words with 749 misspellings.

7. "Everyone's Best Guess" = Jacob
(Obviously, this could include anyone in the greater Portland phonebook.)

Numbers six through three are actually quite related in nuance and simply differ in syntax:

6. "Has anybody ever thought of ... "

5. "Did anybody notice ... "

4. "Anyone else thinking that ... "

3. "Has anybody considered the possibility that ... "

And the second most overused annoying phrase:

2. "I didn't see this mentioned before, but ... "
(Subject matter usually already mentioned 43 times in the last 61 posts, i.e. "the" picture on the desk!)

AND THE NUMBER ONE MOST ANNOYING PHRASE:

1. "Have not read the posts yet, but ... "

DRAMATIC EXCLAMATION:
"Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh"
→ Posted by: EVERYONE!

So Here's The Contest: Nominate your favorite Mac-FUNNY-BLOGGERISM!

Now that the season is closing around us, everybody go back into the episodes and nominate your favorite "witty remark" made by a friend OR EVEN YOURSELF! Why not? You know, better than anyone else, when you were in tip-top writing form.

The nominations should be those lines or SHORT observations intentionally meant to be humorous in regard to the situation. If you're nominating your own lines, please limit your submissions to (3) three. (Have faith that someone else will nominate your other 473 good lines!)

We probably should stay away from hurtful comments that were made. Or "put-downs". (I consider one of my best lines "Grammar makes the Man," but it WAS actually a put-down and therefore shouldn't be nominated.)

Everybody got the idea? Somehow we'll figure out a winner. Maybe set a time limit on nominations and then count up results and have a Mac-BLOGGERISM-SMacKDOWN or something ...

Prize? How about the winner gets to be "ALWAYS LAST" next season, no matter when you post? ... Just a thought ... (After all, MIF)

OK, ready? Submit the funny line and name the episode (for context, obviously).

Maybe we could call it the

"Razzle freakin' dazzle back atcha Award"
→ Posted by: mac

Good luck. The clock has started ...

Where the heck is Meg? She's supposed to be first!

Great idea and I'm looking forward to searching for some of my favorites. I'll be back...

Bunnylover, check out No. 10 - I realized last night that I had left meg out of the opening paragraphs - SORRY MEG, PLEASE FORGIVE ME - BUT I did give her well deserved credit in the Top Ten List!

DRH

#3. Posted by: davidrh at June 4, 2007 10:26 AM

Just because I'm one of the annoying ones:
What's about the picture on the desk? I've missed that.....

And before you start "Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh"-ing, take into consideration that this blog has made it to Belgium (--> applause for Mac) and we normally are a season behind.
So I have an exellent excuse for using poor grammar and misspellings.

I'm nominating Cindy's scarf!

#4. Posted by: Mary-Jane at June 4, 2007 11:47 AM

Very cool idea, davidrh! And your top 10 most annoying list = right on the money! Now I need to go back in for some research. (I *love* research!) But, whew, those comment sections were deep! If I’m not back in a few days, somebody come looking for me, please? I may be lost in a sea of acronyms or stuck in some "quip" sand!

In the meantime, here’s something from the House blog, obviously not for nomination, but just cause it made me laugh:

...My LOST handle "BunnyLover" doesn't quite work here, so my new handle for this blog shall be "HouseHater."

→ 1. Posted by: BunnyLover at May 25, 2007 03:45 PM

Whoo Hooo! A comment has rolled in! I think we've had a bunny or two on "House". Probably as a source of disease. Heh...

1. "We can say that it doesn't count when an Other kills another Other (say that 3 times fast)..."
-JoePike

Yeah, yeah, I nominated myself. Had to do it at least once.

Here's a fav of mine from our luminous leader's review of D.O.C.

2. "Later that night, Sun sleeps alone in her tent (Jin is still on his camping trip/rescue expedition), so Juliet sneaks in and clamps her hand over Sun's mouth. This seems like an odd way to treat a pregnant woman, but Juliet learned this technique from esteemed mentor Dr. Cliff Huxtable."
-Mac

I realize that was not in the 'comment' section, but it's still golden and worthy of nomination.

3. "Ben wants Alex separated from Carl because they ran out of Dharma Condoms in the '80s."
-Macistheman

Love it, especially because it turned out to be true...in a way. (Ben tells Alex that he didn't want Karl to knock her up...)

#6. Posted by: JoePike at June 4, 2007 12:44 PM

I will do some more research later, but this one has always been one of my faves...

Guy can't spell, has no grammar skills or sense of humor, and stays up until oh-dark-thirty to post. But at least he names himself well. Genius.

Oh yeah, and anything by laffo...

#7. Posted by: ransomjackson at June 4, 2007 12:52 PM

Really looking forward to this as well. Here's a research trick for all to use which should cut-down on the time spent searching: Using the 'Find' function on the computer to search a specific blogger instead of scrolling the entire thing. Press 'Ctrl + F' and then type in Red...Neck...Man. This will immediately go to the first posting and you can click next to go to the next.

I'll hold off on the LOST Question for a while DavidRH. This deserves to be at the top of the blog for a while.

#8. Posted by: Red...Neck...Man at June 4, 2007 1:09 PM

(From Catch 22)- IMHO One of the most cre8ve from bcre8ve:

@davidrh:

Congrats my man on getting your own section of the blog.

Time for some heavy reasearching to find my own "Top 10" favorite comments that I've come across. Most of you guys are too funny.

#10. Posted by: Mr. Grimm at June 4, 2007 2:04 PM

I'm always laughing at Red...Neck...Man. Talking about his ongoing romance with Cindy and her scarf, his random sightings of Michael in the fax room, and anything that has to do with beer is funny so here is my entry.

I just had a Desmonition: in an hour I see frames of me 1. drinking a beer, 2. throwing darts, 3. drinking a smooth glass of MacCutcheon, neat, and 4. Aaron spits up Exorcist-style on Charlie's face and I somehow have to save him

Kinda weird, huh? If I don't save him will my high school girlfriend fall out of the sky?

Above post Dakota states: "I'm always laughing at Red...Neck...Man. Talking about his ongoing romance with Cindy and her scarf, his random sightings of Michael in the fax room, and anything that has to do with beer is funny..."

Couldn't agree more. Was trying to find RNM's Michael sightings and scarf tales to post here, but you summed it up perfectly. I second your post and add one more Cindy sighting.

Everybody loves some Red...Neck...Man!

#12. Posted by: BunnyLover at June 4, 2007 4:15 PM

How about "oldgroover" pissing and moaning about acronyms, then using an acronym in his post?

I really loved JoePike's, "We can say that it doesn't count when an Other kills another Other (say that 3 times fast)..."

I recall hurling bitching about meg saying that she is first. Meg promptly came back with mif. In my next post, I closed by saying "his" (hurling is second), for which RNM gave me kudos.

Yeah, RNM comes up with so many of them, it's hard to select just one.
Clementine has been coming up with some doozies also.

The hardest I laughed when reading a post was when meg said "mif" - - - I laughed so hard that I was glad my wife wasn't around, ere she think I was going off my rocker.

Wow, DavidRH, great idea. Thanks for the personal mention in your write-up, too...I'm honored to be included in the group of LOST addicts you mentioned, especially as I'm not particularly witty or creative (or should that be cre8ve?).

@You All Everybody

I did warn you that I *love* research, so prepare yourselves for my complete list of favorites. I originally intended to pare this down to a Top Ten, but couldn’t bring myself to edit anyone out. You guys rock!

I started back at “Par Avion” because that’s about the time I arrived here. And I only included your brief witticisms. Some other topics were darn funny, but they took quite a few posts for set-up. (Although I couldn’t resist including the genesis of Crispy Seaplanes – the cereal.) And davidrh, your “Grammar Makes the Man” was one of my favorites, but I tried to follow your rules above, so it’s not included. But it was one of the best. (For anyone interested, it can be found under Key Points from “D.O.C.” #177.)

So, listed by post date and episode (drumroll please), here are Clementine’s Favorite Lost Blog Comments...

The obvious solution to Jack and Claire finding out about Daddy Dearest is for them to stumble upon the body together and simultaneously say, "That's my dad!" Then look at each other, then back at the body, then at each other, etc.

With all the new yummy-oatmeal-talk going around the island, I did some research. I found something. It's been on the test market for a while but it's about to make it's debut. The all new 'OatPlanes Brand Ready-Crispy-Packs'. I pop one in the microwave, check my voicemail w/ my newly-aquired/charged satellite phone, then take heaping gulps with the SAME spoon Kate used (smiley!). It crunches like a tasty Dharma fish biscuit, and contains 108% of my daily intake of midiclorians. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

They were originally the Black Rock Slavetraders, but concern over the inappropriateness of the name and logo in our modern era led them to change it to the Hostiles. This coincided with a uniform change from pirate gear to a J. Crew inspired look for home games and hillbilly chic for away games. Jerry Seinfeld is a fan, and once wore a throw back jersey on the Today Show. They are currently at the top of the standings, but the new expansion team this year, the Beachdwellers, are positioning themselves for a run at the pennant.

It was a long time ago, but I thought I would go back to the first six episodes of the season and see if any of the “funnies” there were worth a nomination.

Not.

It appears, that for the most part, only mac could say funny things about each episode. The rest of us were mostly TICKED OFF . . It was a strange series of shows. Right off the bat, people were leery of where the season was going and the sarcastic remarks began to immediately bubble to the surface . . .

Kate is forced to wear a sundress. She is then walked, unrestrained, to the beach and then told to wear handcuffs to drink coffee. Is coffee less dangerous with handcuffs on?

The sarcasm (and the ticked-offness) picked up speed as the episodes crawled by . . .

a fishing trip?

Å® 234. Posted by: Crispy Seaplanes in CATCH-22

Interesting to note that as early as the third show of the season, bloggers are already calling for Charlie to die. Eko bites the dust and the tumult of opposition to the show grows louder. People are disillusioned and the smallest things were fodder for dissent - Paulo’s not-emmy-nominated toilet drop and the brouhaha over the escalator, which ranks SECOND only to the “picture debacle”, become the hot topics of the day!

In fact, up until the sixth episode, this following banter may have been the highlight of the “bloggerisms”:

@ Illusivemuse
>I'd like to know what you all think of the show being titled "Lost."

How about:

"Not Found"
"Missing"
"Smokey and the Polar Bears" (my personal favorite)
"De-planed"
"Boss, boss, da plane, da plane, it's gone, it's gone."
"Backstories r Us"
"Sane Doctor Goes Wacky, Then Becomes Sane Again."
"It's a Lock(e)"
"I hear your Eko, but ..."
"Blost" or "Blogst"(that's Blog and Lost)
"Survivor" (oops, we already have that one)
Å® 313. Posted by: ButchM

FINALLY, with Episode Six, famously reviewed by mac, striking a note of whimsy with the infamous “BEAR CAGE SEX” phrase, I thought we were off and running! . . .


"And now for an update on the 1st Annual "Island Hook-Up Championship" The score is Sawyer 2, (Sayid 1 - posted by Melissa), Jack 0, Hurley was in the running but is now permanently stuck in 3rd. In other news the judges have ruled Jin disqualified, sleeping with your wife is not considered a "hook-up".
Å® 37. Posted by: Mr. Grimm

BUT then somebody noticed that Kate, following 3 days of cage dwelling, had shaved underarms . . and the mystique was over . . . and the blog deteriorated into, thanks to myself and English teacher, ButchM, a ongoing vocabulary research project which eventually drove 9 of the regulars . . including mac . . into a literary frenzy . .

Smokey and the Polar Bears? Is that a doo-wop group, a magic act, or the latest zoo exhibit? Just wondering where I can see them when they next come to town.

You all had me laughing so hard with this that I had to go pour a glass of wine to calm myself. I have to take some time to scan back through the posts, time which is short now that I am home with the kids this summer (strange that at work I have much more time to be on the computer)

I always loved it when someone would get irritated with one of the regulars and then all of us would jump in to defend. Remember the fight with Vikki and ??? last year?

laffo was the funniest with Clementine's comment - that was aleady mentioned.

#38. Posted by: James at June 6, 2007 12:20 AM

Ok friends, I admit it. Putting funny captions to pictures is a WHOLE LOT EASIER! This is more like “going to school”- Wow, my eyes are getting blotty from just exploring the weekly reviews for funny postings that I remember laughing very loudly at. (And I’ve been through them all once or twice before just to write the opening of this blog entry!!!)

So I decided this morning, drinking my morning coffee, to follow my own advice and pick out MY favorite entries. (Of course, mine are easier to find since I tend to write one large entry on the night of the show and then post after I’ve read mac’s review . . . most of the time. Ooops! That WOULD be an instance of the No. 1 Baddie, “Haven’t read the posts yet, but . . .” I’m shamed.)

So, in order of oldest to newest, here’s three davidrh postings that I enjoyed writing the best . . I think . .

27. LEFT BEHIND 04/04/07
“ . . . I must thank the writers for the “Charlie’s Angels handcuffed girls race through the jungle falling into the ONLY major mud hole within 50 miles” moment! - Obviously there was no way to work a tub of jello into the story line! ‘

8. ONE OF US 04/11/07
“ (Juliet is) Forced to crawl across a submarine deck in a tight skirt
and Ruched d’Orsay stiletto pumps, no doubt being taped
for future episodes of the island “What Not to Wear” Series.”

Actually I was fairly proud of this posting, since in the middle of my nighttime quick-write, I had to go online and spend several minutes looking for “expensive stilettos” - Until I added “heels”, I kept getting knife companies! (But I now have a working knowledge of jewel encrusted flick knives in case I want to start a fashionista gang in Paris.)

And lastly:

3. CATCH-22 04/18/07
“What I saw tonight was confusing and not very compelling. Oh sure, Des has visions, Kate has “jack” troubles & Sawyer “benefits”, (This scenario is getting a little tiresome...) and Charlie gets saved again. (Talk about mental anxiety! I’m waiting for the moment when Charlie gets so distressed about his impending demise that he simply spontaneously combusts!)”

[I’m somewhat embarrassed to admit - and the ‘Catch-22” entry of mine will verify it - but I WAS the first boob to mention the “picture on the desk” thing . . . which has taught me a good lesson about taking time to read mac’s review FIRST! ]

I know the search is seemingly exhaustive - especially for all your folks who write those slap your knee one-liners - but at least, FIND AND POST the one-liners you thought were really zingers . . . Even if Encylopedia-Lost-fodder-Clementine has researched yours out already . . . afterall, more mentions by different folks is the key to success here!

Have a great day. I intend to.

#39. Posted by: davidrh at June 6, 2007 7:37 AM

I was a sometimes blog visiter (though I'll admit, I'd gone back and read EVERY review, and EVERY posting of the series) until Red...Neck...Man mentioned seeing Michael in his fax room. It may have led to an embarrassing Coffee-out-the-nose accident, but from then on I was Hooked.

#3 Grammar Thread (Key Points from I Do)

...right in front of my desk, on my bulletin board, is a list of 100 words suggested by the editors of the American Heritage Dictionary that everyone should know - and use in their daily writings, and as the editors say, "serve as a benchmark to measure yourselves." Try these on for size: abstemious, deciduous, expurgate, fiduciary, and luquacious.
- davidrh

I find that the abstemious introduction of nomencalture into our lexicon can enhance our overall experience.
However, vacuous circumlocution may enervate this forum, which is otherwise resplendent with insight, introspection and acumen.
I propose that rather than abrogate loquacious postings, we all adhere to our fiduciary responsibility to avoid deciduous orthography and rely on mac to expurgate postings that are feckless, jejune, supercilious, or otherwise deleterious.

I need to add my vote for vacc's Spoiler Alert. Somehow missed it in all my "research" :) but it was definitely one of my favorites.

Bye lost fans
Signes Clementine

*** Spoiler Alert : I read on another site that laffo gets pecked to death by the Hurley bird right after he mistakes the giant nest near the radio tower for a working toilet.

Once upon a time, on a side blog called "Answers Pulease" everyone was lamenting the time it was taking for the finale recap to post. The finale raised a whole new set of questions for vacc. Number 2 being, "Who was in the casket (was it laffo)?

Another, very, very funny moment.

Question: If Meg is MIF and wins this contest and is always last to post. Wouldn't that make her Alpha and Omega?
and wouldn't that mean you would only have one post a week? I've been eating crispy seaplanes and having these visions.

Post #50:

Samfin - You have raised a unquestionable conundrum. hmmmmmm . . .

I think it's time for those verbose and intellectually gifted writers to belly up to the bar - transcendentally-speaking, of course.

@ Diggler/#49: How exactly does one get tan-genitals?

#53. Posted by: Red...Neck...Man at June 7, 2007 1:39 PM

@RNM/53

I can't believe that question has not already been covered somewhere in the RNM operations manual.

#54. Posted by: Clementine at June 7, 2007 2:29 PM

Well now, hold on a sec...

If the conundrum is unquestionable, why are we being tasked to question it?

A paradox burrito wrapped up in a mystery tortilla cloaked in an chihuahua-cheese-and pico de gaya flavored enema...or is that enigma...I always get those two confused...I hope my metaphysician knows the difference.

(Talk about mixing your metaphors.)

Quite frankly, it's always been an enigma to me why people would get an enema but I digest...

Interesting find online.....

Tan-genitals (noun): Browning/Bronzing of the male 'nether-regions' when one has been exposed to a gigantic flash of purple light. For female definition, please see Tan-gina.

THIS is why this blog is the BEST blog in town . . because OFF-SUBJECT is about as hilariously OFF-OFF-SUBJECT as we can get . . .

It’s probably a good thing we all don’t live in the same town - We all DON’T live in the same town, do we?!?! - because I’m not sure this many fertile minds could co-exist without some kind of . . well, paradoxical barrito spontaneous combustive eruption -whatever . . .

Hey mac, have you won that award yet? WHAT’S THE HOLDUP WITH THOSE PEOPLE?!?

You would think they would especially be impressed with the exceptional clientele you have acquired . . .

Posting this here for those who do not log into the other post.


Here’s a little something for y’all to gag over. Note that there may be TWO or more entries for some of the more familiar names. Consider yourselves LIKED ;>)

LAFFO IS A GASSO

By doing some e-x-t-e-n-s-i-v-e research, I discovered that our good buddy, Laffo, has a lot of friends and family. What I will attempt to do here is list each and every one of them, AND write a short statement about each. I think we can have fun with it. No biggie, but Laffo has a twin sister named miffo (meg is first, friends-o) but she isn’t too fond of her chuckling brother, and prefers the name “meg-o.” So when you see meg-o somewhere below, you’ll know it’s really Laffo’s twin, miffo.

And to newcomer (?) SamFin ...

#65. Posted by: Clementine at June 7, 2007 10:02 PM

WOW! ButchM - Count on an English teacher to write the longest and most inclusive posting ever. I’m impressed. I join Cecil Rose in standing at my computer and clapping uproariously!!!

Thanks to all who joined this little excursion. As Maholowayan mentioned a few inches ago, this is a “tough task” entry, but it’s been fun to look back and for no other reason, remember what a good time we ALL had this season.

Mac, thanks for putting up with this great bunch of punsters and for giving us a great platform to take off from - YOUR REVIEWS ARE THE BOMB!

I’m going to post this through my website just so you all can log on and see my happy face looking back at you thanking you for a great ride this year.

(By the way, I noticed one of the other LESSOR blogs taking a census to see where everyone called home in general - City or State wise. It was interesting to see how widespread we all are. I currently hail from southeastern Tennessee.)

Anyway - there’s still room for more “looking back” - Personally I’m torn between laffo (who I actually missed the first time around by being out of town most of that week) and all those people in RedNeckMan’s FAX ROOM.

Let’s go a few more days and then we’ll have a run-off vote or something.

You folks are funny people!

Very good job. But you forgot youself. I would come up with something but PBS is up so loud I can't hear myself think and laffo is coming over to tell me the inner secrets of acting from inside a casket.

@ davidrh: cool idea! My mind is afire with possibilities and my fingers are a' quiver with anticipation! I'll be back with my favs.

@ ButchM: you must be one of those professional writers - that was a fun read! Thank you for your time and creativity. I stand in awe. Really.

#68. Posted by: GatorGal at June 7, 2007 11:56 PM

BunnyLover-o wants the inside of her house painted, and she calls ButchM-o in to help her. They wander around the house, and she points out the colors needed - "Now, in the living room, I'd like to have a neutral beige, very soft and warm."

ButchM-o nods, pulls out a pad of paper and writes on it, then goes to the window, leans out and yells, "Green side up!"

BunnyLover-o is perplexed, but lets it slide. They wander into the next room - "In the dining room I'd like a light white, not stark, but very bright and airy."

ButchM-o nods, pulls out his pad and writes on it. Then he goes to the window, leans out, and yells "Green side up!" BunnyLover-o is even more perplexed, but still lets it slide.

They wander into the next room - "In the bedroom, I'd like blue. Restful, peaceful, cool blue."

ButchM-o nods, pulls out his pad and writes on it. Then once more goes to the window, leans out and yells "Green side up"!

This is too much! BunnyLover-o says "Every time I tell you a color, you write it down, but then you yell out the window "Green side up." What on earth does that mean?"

ButchM-o shakes his head and says, "I've got four blondes laying sod across the street".

[if that offended anyone - replace "blonde" with "CSI:NY Fan"]

#69 - DocH - Thanks for having me in your little story. Oh, and by-the-way, I AM blonde, but no offense taken. I usually replace "blonde" with "guy" anyway. (See ButchM's: BunnyLover-o ... lived by the creed that when God made man, She was only fooling around.)

True... how true...

Oh and ButchM - I have one for Cecil Rose-o: He always wondered why all the trees in Tennessee leaned South. It's because Alabama sucks.

What a great trip down memory lane this is! I haven't had the time to go digging through old posts but I think most of my favorites have been touched on.

@GatorGal - not a professional writer at all, but did have one book published at my own expense (something for the grandkids). It's called "TYMEW" (Thank You Mr. Eighteen Wheeler) and is an "R" rated version of my adventures in outdoor bicycling.

@davidrh - not an English teacher, although that was always my best subject (my only 'best' subject, by the way).


@Cecil Rose - not everybody who ever posted but probably around 75% or more of the people who posted in the previous episode.


@DocH - loved the blonde joke. You have a keen sense of humor and will fit in well with all the nuts on this blog.


@SamFin - another keen wit - enjoyed your post.

Okay, since the people (or at least davidrh) have demanded it, here is a list of some of my favorites. This posting is long as it is but hardly all inclusive. My favorites are far too numerous to list. I found a lot of my favorites were on the extra “Questions” blogs where people were really able to get creative with some wacky theories and antics. A lot of my favorites from the “key points” sections have been mentioned already so I tried to focus elsewhere. Also I wasn’t going to nominate myself for any but I did find a couple I couldn’t resist throwing in. So here goes:

From How will Charlie die?:
Claire gets abducted to Losteria Lane where she is reunited with Doctor Daddy who reveals that Jack is her brother. They all decide to live together as one big happy family in a nice modest duplex where they spend their days dishing gossip about how the woman Ben is dating killed her husband and speculate on who Juliette has locked in her basement.
Charlie, in an effort to rescue Claire sees her and Jack and assumes that they have shacked up. In a hopeless depression, he wanders into the jungle where he discovers a canoe half buried in the ground. To his delight, it too is filled with heroin stuffed virgin Mary statues. Apparently after the Beech craft went down, someone tried again to complete the heroin shipment by canoeing. They were caught in a typhoon and carried halfway round the world to the island.
Charlie takes the canoe and sets out to sea using his guitar as a paddle. Unbeknownst to him he keeps paddling in circles around the island. He enjoys having wonderful heroin induced visions of being back at home and touring with Driveshaft although strangely all the groupies look like Claire. Just then his vision is rudely interrupted when the Dharma shark attacks, eating Charlie and the canoe whole. His last words as he is swallowed:
"I should've had a bigger boat!"
The shark becomes addicted to heroin, shaves his head and checks in and out of rehab within 24 hours.

From What is Jacob?

From key points Man behind the Curtain in response to the idea that Jacob might be a Jinn there seemed to be some confusion:
As far as Smokey being Jin, well they have never appeared on screen together, so I guess it's a possibility. Maybe that's why Sun wanted to leave him for Kareem Abdul Lee?
It would be cooler if Smokey was some kind of magical creature instead! ;)

It was in particular fun reading “how will Charlie die?” now that he is dead and some season 1 & 2 postings in light of what we know now. Hope we keep finding things to keep our discourses going until next season. I would miss this as much as or maybe even more than the actual show until next year!

I believe FenwayBen is about three time zones west of you. And Alaïs_Longthought is a whole 'nother continent.

#96. Posted by: Cecil Rose at June 13, 2007 12:48 PM

@CR/96
Three time zones, but we don't do Daylight Savings Time here, so sometimes its 2 hours, sometimes 3. Always three from Arizona though! Makes TV watching frustrating on cable, as some things air at their East Coast time, some at their West Coast time, and some on Hawaii time.

@SeaKay/93 Sounds like DisneyLand was the highlight of the trip, hope you had fun!

Disneyland was awesome, but dang.. Hawaii. I'm jealous. Ever stumble across Lost filming, FenwayBen?

Or . . . I just might make the list up myself.

Everybody cross your fingers . . YOU may be the next and only “ALWAYS LAST” on Mac’s Filmfodder Lost Blog!

@SeaKay/99
I've never stumbled into actual filming, but I have been to some of the places they use and recognize them on screen. Every now and then you come across the actors (Now only if you go to the fancy restaraunts, although in season one you could find em in local bars), and have befriended a few of the stunt guys/stand ins. The most exciting thing is that every year they show the first episode early here on a large screen on Waikiki beach, and all of the cast that have been released from filming that day show up. There are a few other fan forums throughout the year too, they're a nice little part of the community, and it'll be sad to see them go!

#103. Posted by: FenwayBen at June 14, 2007 4:51 PM

I'll keep a look out. The first two seasons they did it the wednesday before the premiere aired, last year the saturday before. For S2 they followed it with the pilot of Invasion, but it was drizzling so most people didn't stick around for it. It's a fun time with food vendors, a "red carpet" for the press. I got some photos from the S2 one, but since it was dark, drizzling, and I didn't have a tripod only some of them came out well. The electricity at the event is amazing ;) Plus you get to know some big stuff days before your friends on the mainland!

This isn't a favorite quote or anything, but it doesn't seem to fit any other category. If any of you are as anxious as I am for season 4 to get underway, and you find yourself wondering exactly how much longer it will be, then look no further! Here I present to you my personalized Lost S4 counter:

Of course, the date hasn't been confirmed yet, but I went with the most likely guess of the first Wednesday in February (seeing as it is exactly 16 weeks from the last Wed. in May) and gave it a premiere time of 9pm since the producers said they would probably go back to that slot next year.

Just think: Only 233 more days to go!!!
