Do you really think all of this is an accident ? That we, a group of strangers survived, many of us with just superficial injuries? Do you think we crashed on this place by coincidence — especially, this place? We were brought here for a purpose, for a reason, all of us. Each one of us was brought here for a reason. – John Locke

What is up kids?

So it was 10 years ago yesterday that Oceanic Flight 815 crashed on a mysterious island, and i have to say my life has never been the same since.  Well not literally 10 years ago for me, as i didn’t start watching the show “LOST” until the beginning of the second season when my boy Tommy made me watch the show.  And out of all the misery and bad luck that Tommy has brough to all of his friends, family, and basically any one who knows him throughout his life, this one gesture was enough to bring validity to our friendship!

And i find there are really only 3 kinds of people when it comes to the show LOST, those who have never seen it, those who think it sucked after the second season, and those of us who realize that this is the greatest show of all time and an adventure that will never be repeated by another show in my life time.  And that’s not to say there aren’t shows that are good as LOST or even better, as “Breaking Bad” and “Game of Thrones” certainly might be the BEST shows i’ve ever seen.  But LOST is definitely my favorite, and i can’t fathom another show  ever taking it’s place. 

“Are you f*cking kidding me miguel? You mean the show with the black smoke monster and time travel and all of the questions that they never answered?  THAT is your favorite show of all time?  Everyone knows that show started off strong and then had nowhere to go because they didn’t have an ending in mind.  And speaking of that ending, what did it even mean?!!”

Yeah yeah, i get it.  i know a lot of you feel that way about this show.  And it’s okay to think that, because this show definitely isn’t for everyone.  i mean if you’re someone who enjoys watching “The Big Bang Theory” or “Real Housewives of Wherever” then LOST is probably not the show for you.  Because those of us who love LOST know that while there are supernatural elements that occur throughout the series that this isn’t a show about science fiction, it’s about people and relationships and second chances.  This isn’t a show about perfect people who never do wrong, it’s about flawed individuals how have made terrible choices in their past.  But on an island where no one knows who they are they have a fresh chance to start over, which is something we all probably have wished for in our lives.  And as these incredibly written characters search for their redemption they get faced with the same impossible decisions they faced before they ended up here, and just like in real life some people learn from their mistakes and others are destined to repeat them…

But again, i don’t need to try and convince you that this the greatest show of all time.  Like i said before you’ve either never seen it, don’t agree with me, or you spent last night watching the pilot episode of LOST like i did to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the television program that changed my life.  And to those of you who’ve never seen or hate this show to each their own, but to the rest of us who love it and miss that it’s gone what better way to relive the magic then to start watching from the beginning all over again!


-While we’re on the subject of planes, does anyone remember the story about the US Airways “tweet” that got the airline in a lot of trouble?  If you didn’t hear the story basically the airline was responding to a customer by answering them over Twitter.  Which shouldn’t be a problem right?  Wrong!  Because somehow when they responded they added a picture that i’m guessing they didn’t plan on adding…

i’ll tell you one thing, i don’t care if that plane shown in the picture above had Jack Sheppard and Locke on it because NO ONE is going to be able to escape THAT Smoke Monster! 
In one of the best “LATER DICKS!” moments of all time, a television reporter in Alaska chose a time while she was live on-air to let it be known the world that she was quitting.  Not only that, she dropped an F-bomb right before admitting that she was the owner of a Cannibas club in the city, and that she would spend the rest of her newfound time devoting “all of my energies to fighting for for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska.”

You can watch the video here now, but just know my hat is off to Charlo Greene for dropping my favorite… LATER DICKS!

A Great Name for a Punk Band! “The Loose Screws”

“OLD SCHOOL” NONSENSE – There’s a move that fighters do in the “UFC” that is a finishing move that most people can’t get out of.  It’s called the “Rear Naked Choke” and it’s basically when you take your opponents back and choke him out until he taps out or goes unconscious.  The move looks like this:

Now my question is, since this move is normally performed by huge sweaty dudes and not beautiful ladies like in the picture above, why did they have to add the word “Naked” to this move?  i mean why isn’t it just called the “Rear Choke?”  Did they HAVE to throw the word naked in there?  In a sport where shirtless men are wrestling each other wearing nothing but speedos trapped in a cage, i would think you’d try not to make any of the moves you do sound gayer.  It’d be like calling an uppercut the “Flaming Homosexual Uppercut!” There are at least two words you could take out of that name to make it a tad less gay.  But whatever, i guess they are going to stick with the “Rear Naked Choke” so what can you do.  Although once they change the name of the move “Hammer fists” to “Silly Love Taps” i’m going to stop watching this sport! 
Fast Food Tips – Is everyone ready for the return of the McDonald’s McRib?!?!?  Well you shouldn’t be, because McDonalds is delaying the release until December now, the earliest.  Mostly because they are Nazi Sandusky loving aholes!!  And also because they want to push the release back to December to help their 4th quarter earnings.  So i guess Mitt Romney is right, Corporations ARE People!  This news is a swift kick to the balleens for those of us who love the McRib, and those of us who do love them are no class having bad food loving bags of douche.  But i will admit that no matter how God awful that disgusting fake meat is between those buns when it comes back around in December i’m going to stand in line and order two of them.  Just so that by the time i’m done eating the second sandwich i remember how disgusting this item is and then i’ll never want to eat another one again!  Until it comes out again the following year of course…
“Facebook Etiquette”-
And that’s it for me today kids!  And yeah i should have probably used that “Facebook Etiquette” on the blog where i wrote about “Fight Club” a week ago but whatever, better late then funny!
But i hope you all have a great week, i hope you all love the show LOST and even if you don’t i hope you all come back here on Friday for an all new comedy blog!
