Just purchased my (assuming I don't pull a runstaverun) last schoolbook required for my degree. My last class starts tomorrow after lunch. Looking over it, it doesn't seem that bad, but I'm sure I'll be begging jenniever and _yggdrasil for help. Words and even phrases come back to me from the end of the book, and the early third springs back easily like a rekindled old friendship. Only this one was a bit antagonistic and abusive at times. I just have to pass. That's what I keep on telling myself. I just have to pass, and the degree is mine. 11 years later. And boo for MWF classes, as I can never burn the excessive amount of vacation time I have stored up for a three day weekend without missing class.

This morning, mystedraveneyes texted me from EWR as I drove near it and my symbol of home (which I am really happy to commute past daily). I called her back, and we chatted as I drove to Madison until she boarded her flight for Japan.

For years, people have been urging me to watch LOST, insisting that it's perfect for me and full of different aspects or references I'd go nuts for. Over the past few months, thanks to kikibird owning it on DVD, a few of us have been watching the entire run. We just got three episodes into the third season last night (I had to bittorrent the latest season while waiting for it to come out on DVD), and I was really irked last night when Locke built a sweat lodge incorrectly. So much so, I called _yggdrasil on the way home to arrange visiting a real one.

And srsly, no LOST spoilers please. I've been avoiding mentioning that I've been watching it in my journal for fear of vengeful Potter fans pissed off at the whole "Dumbledore uses Rosebud to kill Kaiser Soze, who is really Luke's father (and a replicant)" thing. Knowing I'd watch it all one day, I'd avoided most spoilers, and only knew there were "the others" and a hatch.

Ironically enough, iheartschnickle just started watching Lost as well.

That's one of the "killers" on my list, a show I wish I watched but now haven't. Oh well.

I just can't wait until I'm caught up to date, so I can stop avoiding certain parts of the internet that are bound to be full of spoilers. And so I can start reading discussions about the show.

I think it's all on the network's website, if you want to start watching now.

I have to catch up on Brothers and Sisters and get organized for the upcoming season. Cramming in three seasons of a complicated show are not in the cards. I have too much on my plate as it is.

I'll pick it up next season, now that they have an ending in sight.

I just wish I could go back and revisit all of the references made to it that I've missed. Already, a few have clicked in my head.

Hell, I want to go back and re-read a few people's LJs from when the episodes were originally aired, to see their thoughts on things as it was unfolding. I remember all of the "they're all just dead and the island is purgatory" conversations from after the first episode or two.

"Dumbledore uses Rosebud to kill Kaiser Soze, who is really Luke's father (and a replicant)"

Oh, and he was dead the entire time, too.
dosboof From: dosboof Date: September 4th, 2007 07:18 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
And he was also Tyler Durden.

And the story was really set in the present, not the past, as we were led to believe!

And Renewed people are actually vaporized and turned into Soylent Green which is people!
kingfox From: kingfox Date: September 4th, 2007 08:35 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
But it doesn't matter, as everyone's really just clones anyway, right?
nice double shot there, BTW

And a ghost!

Isn't that inferred by "dead the entire time"? Heh.
dosboof From: dosboof Date: September 4th, 2007 07:54 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
Oh, and the entire thing was just an autistic chilld's dream.

Just like Mork and Mindy?

Re: Just like Mork and Mindy?

How do I read this wonderful chart? Is there a guide to what the relative positions mean or whatever?

I assume it means actors and not characters? Or does it depend?
kingfox From: kingfox Date: September 5th, 2007 05:14 am (UTC) (Hard link)

Re: Just like Mork and Mindy?

This explains it all. It means characters, not actors, as the crossovers/guest spots are counted when it's the actor playing the same character as they did in another show that's just in the kid's head.

Re: Just like Mork and Mindy?

Okay, now that was fascinating.

They got an awful lot of mileage out of references to Yoyodyne.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: September 5th, 2007 01:10 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

There's never too many references to Yoyodyne

No matter what version of it is referred to.

I love that neon beer sign, myself.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: September 5th, 2007 05:15 am (UTC) (Hard link)
Yeah. cessna182 and I have talked about the wave of nostalgia that sweeps over us whenever we see it. Who ever thought that a neon sign in a shitty part of the state representing a crappy beer would mean home?

LOST

Glad to see you're almost caught up. When you are we can talk shop. In the meantime, here's a spoiler for ya: Alex Rousseau is my fantasy fuck.

I hope Eko brought a lot of candles

It's amazing they last as long as they do, with only one priest and no wipe protection. Playtesting a new instance with an unbalanced raid is a clusterfuck, eh?
