If My Dad Wrote For LOST:

First order of business; build a woodshed. You’re never going to get a fire going with wet wood.
Everyone would be wearing blue Dickies, or no pants at all.
The boar that Locke caught would end up in a BLT sandwich. I have no clue where the lettuce, tomato or bread came from.
The biggest part of season 2 would have been finding a freezer in the hatch filled with Flavor-Ice pops.
Actually, by episode 2 they would have built a hovercraft and rescued themselves. Series over.


I’m f-in’ dying here guys. On one hand, old man Obama is out there telling me to spend my money. That makes sense. If everybody follows his advice, we enhance consumption of goods, and that makes retailers and manufacturers happy and we get all of our jobs back! Unemployment drops to 0%! Woohoo!
But on the other hand, my deep seeded Maine roots are continuing to scream “DON’T BUY!” crazier than Cramer. Anybody that knows me well, knows that I am the ultimate cheapskate. Oddly, I’m the exact opposite of what retailers were facing this past holiday season. People were buying just as much stuff, just as frequently, only they were buying the cheapest options available. I prefer to put off a sizable purchase for as long as it takes to save up for the higher quality option. I think most of this specifically stems from my preperation for bike trip last year.
I’ve been trying though, but maybe my efforts haven’t been very successful.
Good news: I bought new cookware!
Bad news: It’s cast iron and I’m not buying anymore within the next 50 years.
Good news: I bought a $3000 couch!
Bad news: I bought it at Goodwill for $20!
Good news: I bought a jet ski!
Bad news: Wired magazine told me I don’t need a jet ski to fix the economy. Bummer, nevermind.

The FrURLS Are Coming! The FrURLS Are Coming!

I kind of blew my FrURL load early with Wednesday’s LOST post. i hope these will still entertain y’all.
Britt Sondreal has a few songs recorded and posted to her Myspace. Honestly, you should probably check it out.
Birds Stealing Ice Cream – No further description necessary.
Funny Wi-Fi Names – I love them all.
Three Part Clock – Why consolidate everything onto one face, when you can spread it out over three?
When A Card Just Won’t Do – From PassiveAgressiveNotes.com, courtesy of Ashlinn.
How To Not Pull Your Jeep Out of the Mud – It’s a bit anti-climatic. It peaks a little early, but I love the writer’s Seth Rogen joke. Courtesy of Bagwell. P.S. go to Bagwell’s new site, it’s crazy!
Louis CK on Conan – “Everything’s Amazing, Nobody’s Happy” This is hilarious.

Arms Debate

Alan and Mo (aka Project Tandem) wrote to me last week wondering if I were to have an arm growing out of my chest, would I want it facing palm up or palm down. I actually spent a lot of time thinking about this. Here’s my break down:
Palm Up:
+ I get to eat with 3 hands. Burger, pizza, soda…at the same time! Can you think of anything more satisfying?
+ You know those really stubborn zits where you think “If I could just stab it with one more finger…”? Solved.
+ I could toss an apple into the air, while smoking a cigarette and pointing at hot chicks. I’d be the coolest guy in town.

Palm Down:
+ Faster typing (with more typos, obviously.)
+ Increased smothering abilities.
+ I may finally be able to defeat this girl.
+ Opens up so many new high five opportunities.

So, as you can see, palm down outweighs palm up. That’s my answer. It would be awesome either way. Does anybody know a good surgeon in the Seattle area?

LOST Sadness!

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m pretty bummed about the lack of LOST this week. Here are some videos that will hopefully cheer you up.
LOST Rhapsody – Bohemian Rhapsody with a LOST twist. 1:00 is the funniest screencap from LOST ever.
LOST: The Rap – A little slow, but he does bring up some good points.
Sawyer Hates You Guys Song – Seriously.
Otters holding hands – This can’t not cheer you up!
