Lost Countdown: Episode 2

Here we go…

Locke, Chahhhlie, Hugo, and Joe

I re-watched the last half (non Kate B.S. portion) of episode 2 today on the elliptical…here go the musings.

~ The date on Claire’s Ethan produced ultrasound is a month or so past the original crash date. WTF, yo? No ideas here.
~ The Temple Others leader (Dogan?) has a baseball on his desk…brings to mind the whole Red Sox win The Series interplay between Jack and Ben. I suspect this to be big, since it was telegraphed.
~ Sawyer seemed genuinely sullen…jumped a peg in my favourite Lostie book.#1, FWIW
~ Claire = new Russoau? I butchered that spelling likely, but I don’t care to look it up. Fuck you.
~ The “infection” mentioned. I’m guessing that Christian, Faux Locke, Eko’s brother, and even Claire are all dead, and ‘infected’ per se. These are the people Russoau (suck it) was battling and cautious about…pretty obscure, but this is my take.
and finally
~ The time lines will merge. The LAX dudes (2004) seem to intuitively know stuff that only the real time (be it 2007, via 2004>>1977>>1945>>2007 or directly from 2007) dudes know…I’m saying that Juliette’s bomb somehow did this, and will explain why this is such. She was babbling about coffee with Sawyer when she was on her death bed, and said via Miles that it worked…just wait for it.

Regardless, things are going to have to be very fast paced to wrap up in < 10 hours...should be very interesing

Sunglasses Roundup

Wikipedia states (horribly) : “Sunglasses can be worn to hide one’s eyes: They can make eye contact impossible, which can be intimidating to those not wearing sunglasses; the avoided eye contact can also demonstrate the wearer’s detachment,[citation needed] which is considered desirable (“cool”) in some circles.”

Some circles? I think all circles would consider sunglasses cool, or even bad-ass. Like the over-the-top-awesome MP3 shades that Dog the Bounty Hunter sports, regardless of location and time of day…

aggressive.

…calling those things cool is like calling Richard Branson’s sea-plane “neat.” Grossly understated.

I know a lot of the swantron reader base is looking for deals. And so! Here is an opportunity to render deals somewhat moot…. check out the screaming deals on wholesale sunglasses I dug up. The selection is pretty incredible, and the prices are honestly surprisingly low. If I could get the e-tail thing rolling, I would not hesitate for a second to start slanging these things…you name it, they have it.

It is hard to think about sunglasses without thinking Blues Brothers. That movie single-handedly made the Ray-Ban Wayfarer iconic. They have shades inspired by the Wayfarer, and shades that have taken that notion and pimped them out for the kids…

on a mission from gahd

Not over-the-top enough? Hook up some stutters a la Kanye

UV protection...no thanks

Croakies sold separately. Gigantic Croakies, hopefully not available for purchase…so bad
those could support an anvil on your damn neck

Those puppies would look slick on those MP3 shades. Black of course.

Anyhow, hit the link for a look at some sweet wholesale sunglasses. Drop me a line if you start selling those suckers, because I’m always in the market for some aviators.

Lost… Final Season Roundup: Episode 1…Round 2

I’ve had time to digest E1. As much time as it takes to decipher nonsense, but time none-the-less

crass. horrible color scheme. C-

Musings / Observations:

~ No sign of my favourite Tail-y and Lost-y in general, Mr. Eko. Mista Eko
~ Likewise, no sign of Michael, Walt (WAAAAALT!), Ana Lucia, Libby, and Shannon
~ Less vodka? In the pilot, Jack scored two extra mini-bottles of vodka…Cindy doles out only one in the reset
~ Same scene as ^, Rose is comforting Jack…role reversal
~ Charlie wants to die, whereas Hugo claims to be lucky as hell
~ Locke is still wheelchair bound, yet still claims to have gone on his walk-about…how the hell did he have time for it, and still catch Oceanic 815?
~ First hour (recap) drilled straight into the 2nd hour’s last-season-of-lost-answer-some-crap rapid pace
~ Smokie = Man in Black…no more wondering about that
~ Ben gets punk’d…tries to be slick after wiping out Jacob, until getting pwned and shpwn dead Locke
~ Hugo being decisive after seeing Jacob was intense, and anti-Jack
~ LeFleur is going to tear shit up…took out 4 Udders before they got him sacked and to the Temple
and most importantly…
~ My main man Sayid is ‘New Jacob’. Write that down…I called it. Miles was stunned and Jack failed. It is going to be awesome.

Pretty excited at the pace and feel of the final season. The reset will play itself out. There will be a few long ‘why Kate did what she did…Sawyer being good’ episodes, granted, but it should be a quick 30+ hours.
