Lost: Season Premiere Open Thread

Thursday, January 31, 2008

It is here, the season premier of Lost. Tonight starts the fourth season of the show. I know some of you readers enjoy Lost, so here is your chance to discuss it together in my first ever Lost: Open Thread.

So what exactly is an open thread? An open thread is a simple post with little content (usually) and visitors leave their comments and communicate back and forth through the commenting system. Think of a message board, but without the message board I guess.

So feel free to go ahead and leave comments with your thoughts leading up to and after the show tonight. Also feel free to leave links you find interesting in the comments for others to check out. From this point on today, if I feel like posting anything Lost related it will be in the comments section.

Enjoy the show and don't forget to leave a comment before surfing away from here!

Here's a music video to get you in the mood...


Mega Man II: This is the Remix!

Wednesday, January 30, 2008

Mega Man II may be one of my favorite games of all time on the NES, and as such is among my favorite games of all time. The game play, the level design, the characters, and the music all add up to a terrific game.

The music is still great, even with out being updated. If you have played this game then you know the tunes. Well, check these videos out for an updated sound.

Part I

Part II

Lost: It's like crack, but more addictive

Well, I actually can not honestly back that statement, but that's the feeling I get when it comes to Lost. Stef may be more into the whole phenomena than I am, as is my sister, but I strongly encourage people to get in on this show. The season premiere is Thursday night. Wednesday night the complete two hour season finale from season three (last season) will be broadcast as well. If you have not watched Lost before and want to start doing it, then the best thing for you to do is sit down, and watch the DVD's from seasons one, two, and three (Blu-Ray!) in order.

If for some reason you don't have a flux capicitor (I only have a Mr. Fusion right now...) and are running out of time to do that before Thursday night, then pay attention to this video. It will bring you up to speed on all of the important details. Feel free to leave any questions you have. I will try to respond to them.

In addition I will start up a Lost open thread for any one reading that wants to leave any comments on the show Thursday. Feel free to leave your comments and thoughts on the season premiere. We'll see how it goes. All are welcome to leave their comments.

By the way, only two more days until Lost.

Blog Updates

Just throwing out a post with a couple updates.

  • Updated "Currently Reading" by replacing Schultz and Peanuts with Playing for Pizza
  • Switched "Currently Playing" by replacing Super Mario Galaxy with Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker
  • Updated "Currently Watching" by replacing Prison Break: Season Two with Entourage: Season Two
  • Updated my VodPod with Vader Sessions, Flying Dude, Internet Party, 58% of French people are dumb, Power Rangers own Pokemon
  • Started a joint movie review post for Cloverfield and Untraceable, to be published Tuesday
  • Started laundry
I'm also feeling a little under the weather today, so I hope that when I coughed in front of my new landlord that he didn't catch anything, otherwise the rent may go up. Hopefully he gets sick after signing the new lease!

Oh, and three more days until Lost!


Power Rangers pwn Pokemon

Sunday, January 27, 2008

Maybe it's just me, and that's ok if it is because this is my blog, but this video finds a way to crack me up at the ending. I can't explain why. It just does. And so I share with you...

I must just be a dork, but we all knew that right? Not exactly sure why it would say "yay 4 Jesus" at the end but whatever. And for the record, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pwn all.

Also for the record, I hate internet verbiage like "pwn".


You're My Inspiration

This is the fact for today on the good old page-a-day calendar;

Super Mario Brothers: Mario, the Italian-American plumber in dozens of Nintendo video games, was modeled after the landlord of Nintendo's New York offices in the 1970's.



This was too easy

Flying Dude

You will have a hard enough time getting me to jump out of a plane with a parachute. I don't think you will ever find me contemplating doing this...

...although it looks really cool!


James Earl Jones

Tuesday, January 22, 2008

James Earl Jones is one of my favorite actors, and not just because I love Star Wars and I love his voice. I got to see him speak once at Shippensburg University for a minority scholarship fund raising dinner and it was great. He spoke about his experiences growing up and the challenges he had faced on his rise to his fame, and how he now gives back and encourages others to achieve their goals.

I came across this post a few days ago in my Google Reader, from BagofNothing. Again, you should check this site out everyday, or do what I do and add it to your RSS reader. There are many posts per day, but there is usually one or two really good ones to check out.

If you chose not to click the link to BagofNothing, then here is the video that cracked me up.


Why the Packers Lost

Monday, January 21, 2008

Clearly it was not because Eli Manning is Tom Brady and besides the fact that Brett Favre once again threw wild passes in the playoffs, it is simply clear why the Packers lost to the New York Giants yesterday. Just take a look at the stat line for John Kuhn.

0 rushing attempts, 0 rushing yards, 0 touchdowns. o receptions, 0 receiving yards, o touchdowns.

C'mon! The guy had a 3.5 rushing average this season (shut up, I don't care if he only carried it three times total)! Give the ball to Kuhn!

Conference Championship Predictions

Sunday, January 20, 2008

No time for a full Six Pack this weekend, so just my quick picks...

New England Patriots over San Diego Chargers (I'm rooting for San Diego though)
Green Bay Packers over New York Giants (I hate New York).

Enjoy the games!

Are You Kidding Me?

Thursday, January 17, 2008

Bud Selig Given 3-Year Contract Extension Through 2012. Dumb man gets rewarded for ignorance and incompetence. God bless America.

NFL to return to Britain for regular season game in 2008
. For Eagles fans, don't worry. I hardly think the NFL would take one of the most successful home teams (we're talking revenue here people) and put them in another country for a "home" game.

On a related note, I believe the Giants should have to play at least one of their home games in another country at some point. When they played in London last season, it was a "home" game for Miami. A few years ago when the New Orleans Saints were displaced from the Super Dome, they played a "home" game against the Giants in Giants Stadium.

And on a side note, it is snowing outside.


Two Days

I write this on Thursday morning, but I want to say that the Wii and the Wi-Fi USB adapter discontinued working together yesterday (Wednesday). It was actually less than 48 hours that it worked flawlessly.

I am so annoyed.


Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?

Wednesday, January 16, 2008

The problem we have here is that this chicken won't realize that
he must first deal with the problem on 'THIS' side of the road
before it goes after the problem on the 'OTHER SIDE' of the road.
What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he's acting by
not taking on his 'CURRENT' problems before adding 'NEW'

Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is
why he wants to cross this road so bad. So instead of having the
chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of
life, I'm going to give this chicken a car so that he can just drive
across the road and not live his life like the rest of the chickens.


We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just
want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road, or not. The
chicken is either against us, or for us. There is no middle ground


Now to the left of the screen, you can clearly see the satellite
image of the chicken crossing the road...


We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not
yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.


Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now
against it! It was the wrong road to cross, and I was misled
about the chicken's intentions. I am not for it now, and will
remain against it.


That chicken crossed the road because he's GUILTY! You can
see it in his eyes and the way he walks.


To steal the job of a decent, hardworking American.


No one called me to warn me which way that chicken was going.
I had a standing order at the Farmer's Market to sell my eggs
when the price dropped to a certain level. No little bird gave me
any insider information.


Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes,
the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed I've not been


To die in the rain. Alone.


In my day we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road.
Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was
good enough.


Isn't that interesting? In a few moments, we will be listening to
the chicken tell, for the first time, the heart warming story of
how it experienced a serious case of molting, and went on to
accomplish its life long dream of crossing the road.


Imagine all the chickens in the world crossing roads together,
in peace.


It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.


I have just released eChicken2007, which will not only cross
roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and
balance your check book. Internet Explorer is an integral part
of eChicken This new platform is much more stable and will
never cra...#@&&^(C% ........ reboot.


Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move
beneath the chicken?


I did not cross the road with THAT chicken. What is your
definition of chicken?


I invented the chicken!


Did I miss one?


Where's my gun?


Why are all the chickens white? We need some black chickens.


Did the chicken cross the road? If he crossed the road certainly he had no reason to as a chicken as it would mean expending more effort than the food he would find on the other side could provide the energy for. If he crossed the road.... that can only mean that Colonel Sanders was close behind and closing in on him. Captain- if we can approach Colonel Sanders from the correct approaching angle, we may stop him from strangling the chicken. *looks pensive, then checks Captain*.


I don't know, but I swear I didn't bet on it.


'Cause it (censored) wanted to. That's the (censored) reason.


Jack Sheppard: I don't know, maybe the chicken was just moving in that direction. Why does it have to mean anything that it crossed the road?
John Locke:
The Island demanded that the chicken cross at that moment.
Why are you so interested in the damn chicken, Colonel Sanders? Tired of mangos?
Sayid, calmly:
I know more about chickens and the use of them crossing roads than I care to remember. I don't know what is more disturbing. The fact that that chicken has crossed the road, or that it has only three toes.
Early Shannon:
Oh my God, why should we care if the chicken crossed the road or not? It has nothing to do with us.
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes:
Dude, did you see a chicken come this way?


The Great Scan Project: Update

Tuesday, January 15, 2008

This afternoon I took some time to scan some more photos as part of my Great Scan Project, in which I am digitally archiving all of my old photographs. I was only able to scan about 15 pictures today but that brings my total up to 308 pictures. There is still a long way to go though so who knows when it will be complete.

I wanted to share a couple of my favorites so far with you. None of these are on my Flickr account yet.

This was taken when I went on a road trip out to Pittsburgh with some friends from Shippensburg. We went to see the Pirates take on the LA Dodgers.

Here is a shot of some friends on a band trip to Virginia Beach. Front (from left to right): Mercer, Megan, Aislinn, Eckert. Back row (from left to right): Greg, Carmen, me.

Here is a picture I took in Austria. Because I didn't label where every photo was taken though, it could be from Germany.

I am certain however, that this is Ireland.


Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector

Monday, January 14, 2008

I love Nintendo. I hate the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector. Ever since getting it to connect my Wii to the internet it has been on again, off again as far as the connection's stability goes. I don't understand how the Wii and USB connector stop communicating, because each recognize that their Wi-Fi waves are in the air, they just sometimes refuse to communicate 100%. It's like Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens on the football field; they acknowledge each other, they just don't like each other.

Oh wait, T.O. has always had great relationships with his quarterbacks. Anyway...

Today I will start keeping track of how many days can go by before the Wii and USB Connector stop playing nice for me. Today is Day One.

This kid sums up my frustrations, although in a less mature style of course...


Go Chargers!

Six Pack of Picks for the Weekend: DIVISIONAL PLAYOFF EDITION!!

Friday, January 11, 2008

Brace yourself and go get a snack and a beverage of choice, for this is a traditional Football Friday post with more detail and links galore that are thrown in for your reading and relaxing pleasure. Go ahead, I'll wait!

I'll kill some time (high score: 1406)...

Ok, have your Coke and Frito's? Then carry on.

In the Wild Card weekend of the playoffs I went a respectable 4-2 including a pair of meaningless bowl games. But then I went ahead with the bonehead decision to put my faith in Penn State's Big Ten brother in Ohio, and picked the Ohio State Buckeyes to topple the hometown LSU Tigers in my BCS Championship bonus pick. That terrible decision dropped me to 4-3. For the season I currently sit with a record of 73-44.

And now that bowl season is over let us review all of my bowl game picks this season.

San Diego County Credit Union Bowl: I picked Utah over Navy. CORRECT!
New Orleans Bowl: I picked Memphis over Florida Atlantic. WRONG!
Papajohns.com Bowl: I picked Cincinnati over Southern Mississippi. CORRECT!
New Mexico Bowl: I picked Nevada over New Mexico. Oops. WRONG!
Las Vegas Bowl: I picked BYU over UCLA. CORRECT!
Hawaii Bowl: I picked Boise State over Eastern Carolina. WRONG!
Motor City Bowl: I picked Purdue over Central Michigan. CORRECT!
Holiday Bowl: In picked Texas over Arizona State. CORRECT!

Champs Sports Bowl: I picked Boston College over Michigan State. CORRECT!
Texas Bowl: I picked TCU over Houston. CORRECT!

Emerald Bowl: I picked Oregon State over Maryland. CORRECT!
Meineke Car Care Bowl. I picked UConn over Wake Forest. WRONG!
Liberty Bowl: I picked UCF over Mississippi St. WRONG!

Alamo Bowl: I picked Penn State over Texas A&M. CORRECT! (Of course!)
Independence Bowl: I picked Alabama over Colorado. CORRECT!
Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl: I picked Air Force over California. WRONG!
Humanitarian Bowl: I picked Fresno State over Georgia Tech. CORRECT!
Sun Bowl: I picked South Florida over Oregon. WRONG!
Music City Bowl: I picked Kentucky over Florida State. CORRECT!
Insight Bowl: I picked Indiana over Oklahoma State. WRONG!
Chick-fil-a Bowl: I picked Auburn over Clemson. CORRECT!
Outback Bowl: I picked Wisconsin over Tennessee. WRONG!
Cotton Bowl: I picked Missouri over Arkansas. CORRECT!
Gator Bowl: I picked Virginia over Texas Tech. WRONG!
Capital One Bowl: I picked Florida over Michigan. WRONG!

Rose Bowl: I picked USC over Illinois. CORRECT!
Sugar Bowl: I picked Georgia over Hawaii. CORRECT!

Fiesta Bowl: I picked Oklahoma over West Virginia. WRONG!
Orange Bowl: I picked Virginia Tech over Kansas. WRONG!
International Bowl: I picked Rutgers over Ball State. CORRECT!
GMAC Bowl: I picked Tulsa over Bowling Green. CORRECT!
BCS Championship: I picked Ohio State over LSU. WRONG!

Bowl record: 18-14

Hideous! Embarrassing! Humiliating! On ESPN's College Bowl Mania I ranked #233,938! GASP! That's awful! That is a finish in the 18.94 percentile! Yuck! Let's just move on please, can we?

This weekend's Six Pack of Picks for the Weekend focuses on the NFL's divisional round of playoff action. Some good match-ups here folks.

In the NFC we have the Seattle Seahawks, champions of the NFC West division and victors last week over the Washington Redskins, visiting the Green Bay Packers, who are coming off their first round bye week and are lead by none other than Brett Favre. Do you remember the last time these teams played in the playoffs? The game went to overtime and a young and over confident and excited quarterback Matt Hasselbeck called the coin flip for the Seahawks and said into the ref's microphone, "We want the ball and we're gonna win!" Obviously the Green Bay fans were not happy, but it was Hasselbeck who ended up tossing the game winning touchdown in that overtime. The only problem was Al Harris was the man who scored that touchdown, and he played for the Packers (and he still does). I am on the Packer band wagon in the NFC and I hope, and predict, the Packers will win this game and move on.

In the other game, the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys will meet for the first time in the playoffs. There have been 90 plus games between these two rivals but I found it hard to believe this is the first playoff game between the two. A lot of people are predicting the Giants to win this game, much to my chagrin. I find it impossible, as an Eagles fan, to "root" for either of these teams in this game. Therefore, I have no rooting interest. Both teams are evil in my mind. It is a lose-lose for me because I either hear about the heralded quarterbacking of the young gun-slinger Tony Romo or the wonderful evolution of Eli Manning. I either hear about Terrel Owens recovering from injury to help his team win or I get another week of Plaxico Burress thinking he is the man. Tom Coughlin is annoying and I detest all of the Wade Phillips hysteria. We know it doesn't take a genius to win in professional sports (see Terry Francona) so I don't want to hear people proclaim Phillips to be all that until he wins a playoff game, or two. Much is being made about Tony Romo going on a vacation with Jessica Simpson last week too, but I don't buy it. The Cowboys are a better team than the Giants and I think they will pull one more out. I would rather see New York win (assuming Green Bay wins) because I'd like to see the Packers host a conference championship game in the historic "Frozen Tundra" instead of seeing another game in that dump of a stadium in Irving, Texas.

As for the AFC, the unbeatable Patriots play host to what seems to be everybody's newest "Patriot Killer" darling, the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jags are getting attention and respect because they beat the Steelers in Pittsburgh twice this season. Sure, I picked the Steelers to win in the Wild Car round against the Jaguars, but there is nothing that tells me the Patriots are losing the rest of the season. They are just too good and at this point, they play their best. Everybody continues to point out the weaknesses of the Patriots and some say the Jaguars are just the team to expose them and beat them. Whatever.

The Patriots are at home. They have the edge in just about every category against Jacksonville, with the Jags maybe getting a slight edge at running back, but when was the last time New England needed to rely on their running game at any point this season? As long as Tom Brady is the quarterback and Randy Moss is one of his targets, who cares about a running game? Certainly not the Patriots. They also NEVER sweat or succumb to pressure. And now people think the Jaguars can overtake them this weekend. NO WAY.

Look, I am not a Patriots fan by any stretch of the imagination. If anything I would be ecstatic to see them lose just about any day. While I have no ounce of love for them I do respect history and I would love to see a team go undefeated. The Patriots just so happen to be that team that can pull it off, but alas, one game at a time. They will beat the Jaguars.

Oh yeah, did you know there is a team in Indianapolis? They play pretty well too and rumor has it they just won the Super Bowl last year. I need to confirm my sources because I didn't think anybody outside of Boston won championships lately, but I'll get back to you. The Colts play host to the San Diego Chargers this weekend, and while I'll be rooting for the Chargers, I find it hard to believe that the Colts will lose. This game may be close though and I believe will be a better game than the Pats-Jags match-up.

So let us recap the Six Pack of Picks for the Weekend...

Green Bay Packers over Seattle Seahawks
Dallas Cowboys over New York Giants
New England Patriots over Jacksonville Jaguars
Indianapolis Colts over San Diego Chargers

Wait, that's only four games! Ahh, I hate when college football ends. So, as I have done before, lets throw in some college basketball picks to round out the Six Pack until the NFL season is over.

#17 Villanova over Cincinnati (Saturday)
#5 UCLA over #4 Washington State (Saturday)

Here is my Playoff Fantasy roster for this weekend as well. My salary breaks even at $0.0.

Now THIS was a classic Football Friday post! How I missed them!


New Template

Thursday, January 10, 2008

It's hard for me to sit still with my template. I always want to add something to it. Having said that though, I do believe that this is the template I will be sticking with for a good while. I may mess with the color scheme a little but this template gives me the look and feel I want, plus allows me to add the functionality of the social bookmarking buttons. Does anyone ever use them? Probably not, but they are there for you if you ever need them!

This template comes from Blogger Buster.

On the left you can check out a number of links, including my friends' blogs as well as some of my favorite blogs. The Penn State blogs and Phillies blogs get their own section.

On the right you will find my Facebook and Flickr badges, as well as my Amazon Wish List, in case you ever want to buy me a present or something. Also there is my VodPod, a collection of video clips that will likely be found in this blog somewhere. And finally you can find out what book I am reading, what game I am focusing on playing, as well as what can be found in my DVD player. This year I would like to try and make an effort towards getting back to writing my reviews of books I've read and comment on the DVD's I watch or games I play. So be on the look out for that. I am (finally) almost finished Peanuts and Friends.


My Photos! They're Everywhere!

Wednesday, January 09, 2008

I received a notification the other day stating that one of my photos had been selected for use on a tourist information website. Pretty cool, huh? The photo I took of the St. Petersburg Times Forum in Tampa is being used by Schmap! Here is the photo, and you can click the photo to check out the site itself.
In addition I noticed that The 700 Level has used one of my photos from Eagles training camp for a story they put together for another website. I wasn't asked for permission but I submitted the photo to the Flickr pool for The 700 Level so it's all good. Not like the time I found a photo of myself being used by We Should be GM's.


I Like Free Samples of Cereal

Received this with the newspaper the other day. I like free samples. I wish we got more. The only time as a kid I ever got to have Lucky Charms or Count Chocula or any other marshmallow cereal was when we got the free samples in the mail. It was like a sweet bonus!


Another Job Interview

Tuesday, January 08, 2008

On a day when my dream job popped back up on Careerbuilder once again (I interviewed with them back in early November only to find out they thought about not hiring for the position), I had an interview with a staffing agency that is doing the hiring for this company.

I'm supposed to wait to hear about a second interview with the company itself. I should know by the end of the week. Crossing fingers!

I also resubmitted for the previous job opening as well!


Ramblings National Champion

LSU won the BCS "National" Championship. Appalachian State won the FCS National Championship. Valdosta State won the division two national championship. And University of Wisconsin - Whitewater won the division three national championship.

Seeing as everybody seems to have a different opinion on a national champion on the grand stage that is the Football Bowl Subdivision, ruined by the Bowl Championship Series computers and after witnessing LSU become the first ever two loss BCS champion I figured I'd throw my argument in there as well.

So today, I officially proclaim that the University of Kansas is the first annual Ramblings National Champion!

With a record of 12-1 and capping off the best season in Kansas' history with a victory in the Orange Bowl, I proudly announce Kansas to be national title worthy in this crazy season of college football.

Why Kansas? Well, why not? The "national champion" LSU Tigers had two losses this season. Kansas only had one! ONE! Kansas had a good story all year and was clearly disrespected all season because of their schedule. Of course, had Oklahoma or Texas gone 12-1 with Kansas' record those schools would have been lauded and tauted as national title contenders instead of pretenders, which Kansas was leveled too after losing to Missouri in the final week of the season before conference championships. Never mind the fact that Missouri was the best team in the Big XII conference (I hear you Boomer Sooners, calm down).

Kansas was fortunate enough to still be invited to the Orange Bowl where they dismantled the favored Virginia Tech Hokies. Today they can crown themselves as national champions. It may not be as rewarding (no cash involved, that's for sure), or as prestigious (you won't hear about this on ESPN or Sports Illustrated), but I feel recognition should be given to the team who exhibits the character and sportsmanship that a national title winner should exhibit.

Congratulations Kansas! Your certificate is in the mail.


BCS Thoughts: Part 2

Book it now folks for next year's BCS "national" championship;

Ohio State - 23
Georgia - 34

Following the trend of losing to an SEC school, but continuing to close the gap in the point differential.


BCS Thoughts: Part 1

I hate Ohio State and despite the fact that I picked them to win, I am glad they lost.

That is all for now!


Six Pack of Picks for the Weekend: PLAYOFF EDITION!

Friday, January 04, 2008

That's right folks, the playoffs are here! And with it I bring you the playoff edition of Kevin's Six Pack of Picks for the Weekend! I rebounded last week, going 5-1 with my lone loss being the Colorado-Alabama bowl game. My record going into this final full week for picking stands at 69-41. Not too shabby, but I look forward to stronger 2008 when that time comes.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers over New York Giants
Pittsburgh Steelers over Jacksonville Jaguars
Seattle Seahawks over Washington Redskins
San Diego Chargers over Tennessee Titans
Rutgers over Ball State (International Bowl)
Tulsa over Bowling Green (GMAC Bowl)

Bonus pick in honor of the mythical "national" championship which is the BCS Championship; "THE" #1 Ohio State over #2 LSU.

As for my fantasy playoff roster, here's my lineup for the wild card round;

Quarterbacks: Ben Roethlisburger (Pit) and Jeff Garcia (TB)
Running back: LaDainian Tomlinson (SD) and Fred Taylor (Jac)
Wide receiver: Hines Ward (Pit) and Reggie Williams (Jac)
Tight end: Alex Smith (TB)
Kicker: Josh Brown (Sea)
Defense: Seattle

Enjoy this weekend of football folks!
