Ramblings

Along with everyone who’s been a fan of Lost, I’ve been frustrated. This week’s show gave me a little glimmer of hope. At least they stopped wandering the damn jungle. I’ve said it before. I’ll say it again. Invasion is still trumping Lost.

Much like the Xbox 360 I’m stuck waiting to see if Braves shortstop Furcal will sign with the Cubs. Reports say that his choices are down to Atlanta, Cubs, and Dodgers. He’d be a moron if he went to the organizational mess that is the Dodgers. It’d be a nice Cubs Christmas present if he does choose the Cubs. Going against my plans Giles has decided to resign with the Padres. That leaves the Cubs scrounging for a right fielder. Unless they could steal Abreu in a trade from the Phillies. That won’t happen. One final thing about the Cubs paying big bucks for middle relief pitchers that are over 30 years of age: It’s never ever a good idea.

Are the Mets becoming the Yankees of the National League?

Throwaways it seems is going primetime for a whole split second. I signed a waiver the other day so this blog can be used in one of our episodes. What does that mean? Well if you have Tivo, you might be able to catch it. So it means absolutely nothing.

Remember when I talked shit about the game Resident Evil 4? I’d like to retract my rant. It’s a pretty great game, and I judged it a little early. More about it in another post.

I’m working on a playlist of unusual Christmas songs. Sure there are the classics, but there are those quirky songs that need to be recognized as well. This is what I have so far:

Merry Christmas (I Don’t Wanna Fight Tonight) – The Ramones
Christmas at Ground Zero – Weird Al
Christmas in Hollis –Run DMC
Merry Christmas Everybody-Slade
Christmas in Heaven-Monty Python

That’s all I have off the top of head at 1AM. Feel free to suggest your own

I've only watched the first four Lost episodes this year. The others are waiting on Chris's computer, waiting for me to copy, but you know what? I don't really care anymore. I'll watch them, but I'm not excited. Something about season twos in general I guess. Arrested Development season 2 was good, but paled to season 1. So far Scrubs season 2 (only up to ep 4) is lacking as well. You were right. They use up all their good ideas in the first season, then try and coast.

i meant to post on lost this week but never got around to it. i had the same feeling as you, after months of wandering aimlessly, the show is finally starting to feel like last year a little bit.

also i've been meaning to get scrubs season 1 and dedicate a weekend to it...i didn't catch on to the greatness until season 3. can't wait til it gets back on the air (though i think the hot blonde chick may be gone - can you hollywood boys confirm?).

I haven't seen any of this season's Scrubs. The "hot blonde chick" kind of creeps me out. She walks like a boy with a rash down there.
