Loving L O S T.

Lost…

Why must I love you so?

Why must you end?

STOP TOYING WITH ME.

Anyone else completely mind $*#& by last nights episode? Seriously, it was my favorite episode of the season by far.

Edit: I had a big post coming up, realized some people hadn’t watched it yet, will add it back in tomorrow so I can vent without spoiling it! :)

hai guiz, i’m on this blog, answering your questions.

Just want to go ahead and thank everyone for reading the blog, commenting and providing me material for posts like these. It’s actually incredibly fun being able to write and get a lot of the stuff written out, rather than just hold it in. With that said, I’m going to answer all of the questions asked for Question Of The Week #2. HERE WE GO!:

Number 1.

How important does a person have to be before he is considered assassinated instead of just murdered?

They need to be on my level. As far as I know, there hasn’t been an assassination yet, I’m still alive. Just kidding, assassinations aren’t funny. Or are they?

Honestly, I think it just depends on the level of popularity of the person, along with location and time. If Barack Obama was murdered tomorrow, we would call it an assassination, now what if Kevin Rudd, the Prime Minister of Australia was killed instead? Do you think the common U.S. citzen cares or knows of him enough to think he’s that important? It’s entirely possibly that the Australian goverment cries out “ASSASSINATION!” while we here in the U.S. think “sorry your boy got murdered!”.

Unfortunately I haven’t had the chance to see what the education system is like in other countries, and what kind of history lessons they give – if you study World History in China, do they talk about the Lincoln assassination or is it more of a ‘list of U.S. presidents killed’ ?

Thanks Nick for such a downer question, fuck. To make up for it, go listen to this song, cheer up and move on to the next question. Go ahead, I’ll wait. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_i1xk07o4g&feature=related

If brand new and frightened rabbit had a baby, what would its name be? and what would it sound like?

NO YOU!

Oh deer. LOL GET IT?

Merging two of my favorite artists is a risky business. Could BrandNew stand to have a Scottish singer? Would Jesse Lacey and Scott Hutchison blend well together? Probably. I could imagine some kind of epic ‘Backwards Walk’ and ‘I believe you, but my Tommy gun don’t’ mash-up.

Hrm. Obviously blending the two names together is kinda bleh. Frightened New? Brand New Frightened Rabbit? I would go with ‘The last band you’ll ever hear‘ because it’s going to be so fucking epic you’re going to explode after you finish listening to it. It would be wonderful.

Number 3.

How far along in the sex change process does it take for a tranny to be considered doable?

Silly guy, you can do it anytime. You can always find a way. It’s all personal preference. I think the question you’re really asking me is “Tyler, if I got a sex change, could we…?” and you know what? Maybe.

If this kid can make it work, why can't Richie?

Number 4.

If you were given the chance to take Ellen Page, Aubrey Plaza, or Jenna Fischer on a date — not taking into consideration any real world constraints — which would you choose and describe the date you would take them on in order to maximize the possibility of securing an (extremely hot) celebrity sex slave.

Choice #1.

Choice #3.

Choice #2.

This is going to be fun, remember Kristina, I love you!

Now this is strictly based off of the characters these ladies portray, as (unfortunately) I don’t know them in real life.

Ellen Page: Cute, sarcastic, quirky (Juno), enjoys kicking some ass (Whip It), but also a bit of a prude (Smart People). While I do think she’s cute, and she probably enjoys mocking people just as much as I do, I’d be too terrified that she would castrate me if I ever upset her (Hard Candy).

Aubrey Plaza: Pulls off the cute/sarcastic combo again, but sometimes she’s a little too air-headed (Parks and Recreation). Incredibly funny, could keep me laughing for awhile (Funny People), but the fact that she occasionally seems like she has downs in P&R would probably kill it for me.

If you know anything about me, you know who the winner was before even beginning to read this answer.

THE WINNER:
Jenna Fischer

WINNER!

I don’t even need to consider her other roles, Pam Beesly (Her character in the Office) is everything I could want. She’s extremely intelligent, funny and beautiful, she’s got a strong morale compass and she’s able to admit and work from mistakes (Hmm, sounds a lot like… my girlfriend! <3).  Granted, the relationship between Pam and Jim was what pulled me into the show and kept me going, so I might be a bit biased.

I know you’re looking for some detailed scenario in which I win her over with some ‘Say Anything-esq’ magic but honestly, I’m amazing. If she met me she could be mine pretty easily if I could turn on my charm. Unfortunately I’d probably just keep making Office references, ask her to say “Dunder Mifflin, this is Pam” on my voicemail greeting and then ask her what it’s like getting to hang out with John Krasinksi, she would most likely get annoyed and walk out.

But what do I care? I’ll just call myself.

Phew. That was a long one. THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID.

brostorm? yes, yes it was.

this is the kind of magic you'll find on chat roulette.

Really good weekend overall, Friday I had the urge to play Madden, so I invited people over for that and to shoot pool – to sweeten the pot I added in “PIZZA AND BEER!”.

Richie learned a valuable lesson in ‘Don’t teach drunk people to play card games‘. It does not work. (Sorry Rich! Better luck next time).

Now the best part of the night? Chat Roulette.

For those unaware of this magical (and disturbing) website; Chat Roulette links you up with another random person anywhere in the world for webcam-based conversations. The majority of which are either (lonely) males ‘hangin’ out’ or people masturbating (no joke) but you would occasionally find another group of people, or just some really interesting people who didn’t want to just expose themselves or creep you the f out.

So we set up the laptop with a webcam and pointed it towards our pool table so we could chat while playing; as expected we got mostly ‘chillin’ bros’ or people in the middle of ‘taking care of business’ but we did find a couple cool people.

  • Tim Burton obsessed lesbians sitting on a couch, wearing AND talking about their Alice in Wonderland t-shirts.
  • Guy who was sitting in what I can only describe as a space station – at this point I didn’t have a webcam working so he only saw a blank screen where our cam was supposed to be. I convinced him it was his video card and it wasn’t working properly, which resulted in us getting to watch him climb around his desk trying to un-plug/plug things in an attempt to get it working.
  • Another guy from Utah, who picked up his cam and showed us his house and spoke to us in German after me yelling various German phrases. Thanks for letting me put that four years of German classes to work!

Unfortunately we had some lighting issues so we gave up after about an hour, but it was incredibly fun while it lasted.

Saturday we had a LAN.

I know what you’re thinking. Yes, gigantic nerds.

It had been awhile though, so it was great fun. My girlfriend (finally?) got to see me in that environment, hopefully she still loves me as much as she did before. :)

I learned two things that night:
Hearing “BROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSTOOOOOOOORM” every 90 seconds was in fact as exciting as it sounds (LOVE IT) and a Jason who drinks far too many (four) energy drinks in a couple of hours becomes a Jason that everyone loves; dancing and singing Jason.
Seriously, I thought I had befriended Kid Cudi, he was dropping lines over any song I put on and he made it seem so effortless, wtf did that come from? I don’t even.(hah)

I have a quote of the night that’s written down on a POST-IT note at home, I’ll have to edit this and put it on here once I remember it . :)

Oh, and what the hell is with this Saturday rain pattern? For the past couple of weekends I get all excited at the prospect of going out and hiking or playing Frisbee and sho’ ’nuff that rain comes pouring down, making everything muddy for the rest of the weekend. You know what I have to say? Fuck you, rain. I live in California for a reason, go back to Seattle – I know you’re reading and this and I hope it hurts your feelings.
