Frisky

As in Dingo. Frisky Dingo.

It means nothing to do with the show. Which is funny, right? Yes.

I was gonna steal “Frisky Business” from this week’s Entertainment Weekly sidelight… um, blurb(?)… well whatever, it is under “Critic’s Corner” in the DVD section and written by Ken Tucker (I’m assuming that’s who KT is… which the on-line version confirms). Phew… but I didn’t.

Anyway, this is validation, no? I love that he gives Dingo a straight “A” and with this to back me up, I will again beg you to watch this show! Eleven minutes people! That’s it. These are quick things. Program your DVR to record them and enjoy at your leasure. Continue reading »

Lost: The Constant

So, I started watching this episode about 15 minutes after it started, so I was a little more confused than I should have been, and with time jumping/traveling, that’s shaky ground already! I think I need to start guaranteeing I get myself out of work in time to get home for nine so I can watch all of it in HD. Either that, or waste money on a Comcast DVR cable box so I can record it in HD. Media Center only records standard def over cable.

Obviously it made more sense when I watched the beginning after the end. My comments are on the newly refreshed Ed Zone.

Random TV moment, the guy playing the freighter doctor appeared in the episode of Eli Stone that aired after Lost. In that, he played an automotive corporation whistle-blower cum Hawaiian surf shop owner after being paid off…

I know you don’t care, it was just random. I know this because, yes, I sit thru Eli Stone to watch Julie Gonzalo, who was on Veronica Mars last year, and is way, way cuter/hotter as a brunnette.

Uh-oh… not only is this a long aside, but it is devolving into my Lost aside posting practices from the end of last year… you know, where I just talk about the ladies. Must be something about Spring approaching. 😉

Lost: Through the Looking Glass

Well, it’s a good thing that I watched this live in HD because Media Center conspired against me again and only recorded up until 10.40. Nice. I might need to get a DVR from Comcast.

So, I left a really long comment on Ed’s post today. I thought I should make it a standalone post here due to the length, but that would go against what I have done here this year, plus it would make it hard to match up the numbers (if you are so inclined).

Gotta say, sure did like watching Bonnie and Greta tool on the Hobbit. Sure did not like the continuing trend of killing off the island’s hotties though…

And with that, I’m out. Can’t wait for next season.

Mooninite mayhem

JPo spawned a little discussion over the upcoming ATHF movie and it reminded me that I had some other ATHF related stuff to post, but since I don’t seem to like blogging at the moment, I haven’t gotten around to doing…

Okay, it is more like the holidays and my rediscovery of my Xbox 360 over the holidays, but whatever. Maybe more on that later.

As JPo points out, there is a movie coming out in March and as Ed points out, it might be a stinker. There is a clip on the [adultswim] site to check out.

You can also check out the Mooninite Soundboard for some good Mooninite audio. I think some of this stuff is for the soundboard only as I definitely do not remember all these quotes/sayings from the episodes.

If you want to kill some time... Continue reading »

ATHF: Ezekiel

This one aired a few weeks ago, but I didn’t get around to posting it. They actually got two good ones in a row, with this one having followed Antenna. I wish I saved the episode in Media Center so that I could give you a screenshot, but Ezekiel is a child size version of Master Shake and is just too cute, to everyone but Shake and Carl.

Anyway, he shows up and you have to believe he is somehow Shake’s kid, which would suggest he actually got laid at some point in the past, which is hard to believe. The team takes him under their wing and later find out that, well… you’ll just have to watch it.

It is good and will be repeated soon according to their schedule. Set your Media Center or TiVo for it.

Killface from Frisky Dingo

I had a brilliant post written for last week’s shows, but Firefox 2.0 just took a big dump on me and it is all gone. I didn’t save a draft in WordPress either; gone means totally gone. I was trying to load up cbs.com and an episode of How I Met Your Mother so I could get a vidcap for the lead picture, but when it started loading their InnerTube — which came first, Inner or You? — page, it locked up because I was missing the RealPlayer plug-in. I tried IE first, but same issue except it wouldn’t set Windows Media Player as my preference there (it gave me a choice between the two). I hated RealPlayer before, which is why I didn’t have it installed, and now I doubly hate it. I’ll never install it again. Ever.

Of course, it is not like I just lost a term paper or novel or something like that. I didn’t even shout, snap a remote in half, smash a keyboard or punch a door. The post was mostly the same old usual ga... Continue reading »

The Mini-shows are Coming

As I alluded to in my previous aside, you need to start preparing for new ways to have advertising in your face in the TiVo age. Here’s another bright idea from some other stupid executive somewhere in La-la land. It really is only a matter of time before they start showing ads during the show or as a ticker down the bottom…

ABC Executive on Crack

You know, it’s a bit too late in the game to start thinking this way, but this stupid ABC asshat believes consumers see the fast forward on a DVR/TiVo/Media Center as “gravy.” What crack is he smoking? It’s a feature and they find a way to hobble it, I am going to be pissed. Of course, then they might start running ads and popups and crap during the show. Another example of the geniuses running Hollywood.

Hey, why don’t you just take away my remote altogether. I mean, it’s just gravy that I don’t have to get up and press the buttons on the box. I’m sure the television manufacturers will go for that too.

The Block is Hot

My little weather.com doo-dad says it is 90° today, which is I think the first time that has happened this year. Of course, with all the rain we’ve had lately, who can really remember? At least we finally have a nice weekend and it allowed me to put the top down and pull the doors off the Jeep for a couple days.

However, today I am sitting cooped up inside waiting to test something for work that may or may not be happening. At this point, 2.38pm, I am thinking it either didn’t happen and they didn’t notify my group or they are having troubles and not providing an update. Anyway, I am sweating my t!ts off in my home office and I thought about that title up there.

The title is the title of epsiode 14 in season 1 of The Boondocks. Not only is it a successful newspaper comic strip, but it is also an animated series on the Cartoon Network’s [adult s... Continue reading »
