Lost - Desmond... it's 1996... no... it's 2004

current song: Sexy Back by Justin Timberlake on Power 104.3 FM

where to begin? 1st of all Saint Andrew's Cathedral doubled as Queen's College in Oxford. the show's getting bizarre... but I still watch it to look where the flashes are filmed here in Hawaii. 2ndly some dude at the auction actually works in downtown. he's a messenger who I see delivering/picking up stuff in my office building.

Desmond freaks out in the helicopter as it approaches the ship. he's freaking out in front of Sayid. he's like: who the frell are you? I know at the end he's gonna be like: blah blah blah... Sayid or Sayid... blah blah blah. sure enough in the end he's like: thank you Sayid.

somehow time is distorted. to the survivors on the beach it has been over a day that the helicopter left... to the guys on the helicopter they left the island in the morning and yet arrive at the ship late afternoon.

Desmond... or at least his consciousness... goes back and forth in time. Dan proves this w/ his white lab rat Eloise. the lab rat dies and he tells Desmond that in order for him not to get crazy and die he needs a constant. in his case it's Penelope. and I'm thinkin': who's Dan's constant?... Desmond? at the end Desmond is his constant. so now that Dan has a constant, he will not get crazy and die. in Dan's 1st flash he's seen talkin' to himself when watching the news about the crash. so does this mean that since he has his constant his mind is sane?

Project Runway - Chris & Rami Battle

current song: Come On Over by Fiji on Island 98.5 FM

Heidi tells the designers that they'll have an $8000 budget and 5 months to work on their collection. they have dranks to celebrate.

when Tim visits all the designers he's shown driving around in a Saturn. he 1st visits sister Christian. he's in NYC. hmmm... what will he show Tim? jackets and pants? sure he does. he made a pants w/ feathers. Tim's like: this looks costumey. I learn that Christian is from Annapolis, MD. he started working in a hair salon cuz he'd fit in. he went to fancy design school in London. he said that it was one of the best decisions he's made.

Tim visits Jillian, also in NYC. what will she show him? coats perhaps? sure she does. she got inspired from the last challenge... so she's updating 15th century European fashion. after looking at her collection Tim describes his mood as if it's a cloudy day. they visit her family. she says that she's gonna be the next great American designer from Long Island. I find out that her mother went to see some clairvoyant, who said that she's gonna have 1 famous kid. so growing up Jillian had all these expectations and so that's how she got to where she is today. I wondered what they served Tim for dinner.

Tim visits Rami in LA. it looks like he served Tim some fruit. what will Rami show Tim? more drapery? surprisingly he did some different things. he got inspired from Joan of Arc... not Aphrodite. I'm like: huh? I find out Rami's mom died when he was 5. he had a thing for design... but growing up in a Arab/Muslim environment he kept this side to himself for it was not masculine. but when his family found out about his talent they supported him.

Tim visits Chris in NYC. I didn't know what to expect from Chris. in some of his outfits he used human hair for trim. Tim goes off about being in a house full of monkeys. he's like: when I enter the house it'd be stank... after 20 minutes or an hour I wouldn't smell a thing... but in reality it'd still be stank. so w/ Chris I really really didn't know what to expect.

I wanted Chris, Rami and Carmen to be in the final 3 based from the 1st challenge. too bad he and Rami had to challenge each other for the final spot. at judging I knew the judges would pick Rami. Chris is too out there for them. too bad they couldn't change their decision and have 4 finalists like the other season.

America's Next Top Model - Homeless shoot

current song: Shadow of the Day by Linkin Park on Star 101.9 FM

I don't see what the judges see in Marvita. I don't want another Jaslene repeat. this is America's Next Top Model... not America's Next Tranny Model. they both look like trannies along w/ some other contestants... Fatima, Dominique, Atalya and Stacy Ann.

the girls chillax at some cafe/restaurant. Marvita asks Amis: what's up w/ your name? already w/ the Marvita drama. Ami's like: the name's found in the Bible... what's up w/ your name?... Marvita?... puh-leeze.

the model wannabes move into their kick ass apartment. 2 rooms... 1 w/ several bunk beds and the other w/ 1 huge giant bed. and of course there's a catwalk in the apartment where the girls can strut their stuff for hours.

the Js take the girls on a tour of NYC. they end up in Times Square, where they will be models in a fashion show for Badgley Mischka. some girls get really excited... other girls are like: I dunno how to walk. Marvita's up 1st. some model. on the catwalk she's looking at her designer shoes the whole time. Katarzyna = hot. in the tent another Marvita drama... this time w/ Fatima. Fatranny was so excited doing her 1st fashion show that she hit Marvitranny on the head. Marvitranny's like: oh no you didn't... you just hit me on the head... and you looked me straight in the eyes and didn't apologize. Fatranny's like: whatever. I thought the Js would announce a winner for having the fiercest walk... but no contest.

the next day the girls go to Elite to meet their future employers. they have be thick-skinned cuz they're gonna get criticism from everybody. I assume Paulina Porizkova tells the girls positive things... only the negatives are aired though. she's like: Dominique, you look like a tranny. the girls are like: thank you. off they go to a photo shoot.

the founder of the Reciprocity Foundation tells the girls that they're gonna be posing w/ homeless girls. the homeless girls will be all dolled up while the model wannabes will be made to look like they're the homeless ones. Marvitranny's like: I was homeless before... I can draw upon my experiences and get a good pic. I'm thinkin': ok... if they're gonna pose w/ all these other girls then the model wannabes would have to stand out. I thought all of them did except for Atrannya.

at the apartment the girls are excited and afraid of judging. Kim's like: I don't know if I want to do this... I don't see the point of a dress that cost $2000. at judging she tells the judges this. Miss J's like: oh no you didn't. Tyra's like: oh no you didn't... there were other girls that could have been here in your place... do you wanna go home?... get the frell out. I thought that would be that... but the judges still eliminated Atrannya.

Anya and Claire, who I picked to be in the final 3, were picked 1st and 2nd. Katarzyna was picked in the bottom half. oh... the judges were really impressed w/ Whitney cuz in her photo it looked like her hair's being blown by a fan... except there was no fan on the set. SHE CREATED WIND! cracked me up. I think that's why the judges picked her 3rd.

nice day today. no algae as far as I could see. swam very close to shore in less than knee high water. as I approached the 2nd life guard stand I could see black particles... looked like ash. my mind got the best of me and I immediately got out and showered. ran on the sand back to the 1st life guard stand and showered again. went walking.

Dexter (on CBS) - Matt Chambers

current song: Grillz by Nelly on Hot 93.9 FM

Matt Chambers is a serial drunk driver killer. Dexter's at court testifying. he likes going to court. he says that's where everybody is on their best behavior... including himself. he also says that where other people see people crying, he sees opportunity. he follows a crying man into a courtroom. there he sees Matt Chambers w/ his act, his alligator tears, winning the hearts of the jury. the jury finds Chambers not guilty. a video showed the crying man's son at his birthday party receiving a sweater that'll be put to good use when he leaves Florida to go to Harvard. Matt Chambers killed the teenager while driving drunk. one day/night Dexter sees Chambers at a bar. he buys him a drank. he takes Chambers shot glass home and lifts a fingerprint. Dexter discovers that Chambers has lived in various parts of the country, killing people while drunk, including a firefighter. Dexter kills him. I don't have Showtime or rented the DVDs... but on CBS it showed Dexter drilling into Chambers heart.

Aquatic (attempt), Pac-10 Swimming & Water Polo

current song: Love Song by 311 on Star 101.9 FM

Aquatic (attempt)
attempt cuz water kinda funky... well really funky. I should have checked the Hawaii Beach Safety site for Oahu before going to Ala Moana Beach. I saw a lot of algae... but there was so much... and it looked really really funky. my imagination got the best of me and so my consecutive days of being aquatic ended at 14 solar days in a row. I have to start a new streak after the jellyfish invasion, which will be March.

Pac-10 Swimming
Stanford won over Cal in Pac-10 men's swimming. next will be the Pac-10 championships.

Water Polo
in the latest CWPA rankings released 02.20.08, 4 of the 5 Pac-10 women's water polo teams rank in the top 5 w/ UCLA #1, Stanford #2, USC #3, and Cal #5. Arizona State ranks #8. today at the UC Irvine Invitational, #1 UCLA beat #9 Loyola Marymount. UCLA still has a perfect record and will next play Pac-10 rival #5 Cal. #5 Cal upset #4 Hawaii. #2 Stanford beat #7 San Jose State and #3 USC beat #11 UC Davis. it will be an all Pac-10 final.

Lost - Kate's Trial flashforward

current song: Paralyzer by Finger Eleven on Star 101.9 FM

celeb Kate's on trial for the murder of her father. the court building actually is the glorious Hawaii State Capitol building. I think it's the only state capitol building that doesn't model itself after the White House cuz I think it's the only one in the country that doesn't have a dome.

Kate confessed to mommy that she killed daddy. mommy turned her in and will testify against her daughter. Kate's attorney wants to put her son on the stand. she has a son? who's the daddy? her lawyer gets Jack to testify as a character witness on her behalf. he's like: I met Kate on 09.22.04 when the plane crashed... she took care of all 8 survivors (so who are the 8 that they tell the world survived?)... I didn't know the marshall, but Kate told me that she's a fugitive... I assumed her being a fugitive must be a mistake... and no district attorney lady, I don't love her (I'm thinkin: yeah right... he's just saying that cuz he does love her).

Kate's mom talks to Kate. she says that things have changed since she thought Kate was dead. her doctors told her she would have 6 months to live and yet she lived 4 more years. Kate's like: I don't want to talk to you... the last time I talked to you, you called the cops on me. mom's like: can I see my grandson? Kate's like: oh no you didn't... you came to bargain w/ me? what's up w/ this kid?

so the mom's gonna testify against Kate but because of her medical condition she can't. so basically no case. they cut a deal where Kate doesn't have to spend a day in jail, she's on probation for 10 years and she can't leave the state. as Kate's about to go into a cab to go home, Jack's there. he's like: I didn't mean what I said in the courtroom (that he didn't love her)... let's get coffee. she's like: there's no you and me if you can't accept my son. so I'm thinkin': it must be Locke's kid cuz it would be too obvious if it was Sawyer's.

at home Kate sees her son and calls him Aaron. it can't be Claire's Aaron. why wouldn't Jack want to see him? he delivered the kid. besides Claire's Aaron is his nephew. so Kate must have named her kid Aaron. so I'm thinkin: Claire and Aaron must still be on the island and she named her son after Claire's son cuz on the island they're all BFFs and getting along.

back on the island in the Others' abandoned homes, Sawyer and Hurley listened to Xanadu by Olivia Newton John, which I thought was funny cuz Selisha rented the video and has been singing the song... she also works at the glorious capitol where parts of the flashforward had been filmed.

America's Next Top Model - Cycle 10 Premiere

current song: You by Lloyd on Power 104.3 FM

show opens w/ countdown... 9 cat fights, 8 terrible makeovers, 7 medical emergencies, 6 runway spills, 5 plus size, 4 flying photo shoots, 3 critter encounters, 2 Js and 1 ANTM.

girls on school bus. girls arrive at some school. out pop the Js. they're like: 35 girls will attend Top Model Prep... school begins now. girls run to change into hot catholic school girl uniforms. they get their pictures taken.

initial impressions of the girls who make it to NYC:
Marvita = oh no... this cycle's Jaslene. she didn't make the cut last cycle. she has a swan song.
Katarzyna = frellin' hot. really frellin' hot.
Claire = kinda interesting.
Whitney = plus size girl for this cycle
Lauren = punk wannabe (please... this cycle's Jenah?)
Allison = kinda cute
Fatima = this cycle's Nnenna. I don't find either of them attractive.
Kimberly = kinda sexy/cute... but dumb blond?
Anya = pretty/hot... she's not an exotic foreigner... she's the girl from Hawaii speaking in pidgin.

Miss J teaches runway 101. she's still nastizzy. she has the girls walk their fiercest w/ a heavy backpack on. on the football field there's a bonfire. there are cheerleaders in Catholic school girl uniforms... there's Joanie my fav contestant. she's still hot. the Js are like: who's gonna be the homecoming queen? the girls are like: me! me! me! Tyra's the queen. girls go crazy.

girls get interviewed in their bikinis in front of Tyra and the Js. more initial impressions:
Anya = Tyra thought she has an accent... but it actually is pidgin. I hope she makes it to the finals.
Allison = got a funky looking body
Whitney = yes she definitely is plus size.
Dominique = tranny. this cycle's Jade.
Katarzyna = sexy & smart. she graduated from an Ivy League school. she's frellin' hot in a bikini.
Lauren = did she steal Miss Js backpacks from the runway class and put them under her eyes?
Kimberly = she is a dumb blond.

at this point I like Katarzyna 1st, Claire 2nd and Anya 3rd. so that's my official prediction for this cycle. I'll have to wait and see though after a few eps and the girls' makeover transformations. but again at this point it's gonna be Katarzyna.

Aquatic & Pac-10 Swimming

current song: With You by Chris Brown on Da Bomb 102.7 FM

Aquatic
breast stroke (arms only). 1.5 laps. no rest.
sand run from station 3 back to station 1.

this morning on Perry & Price on KSSK 92.3 FM they talked about the sun setting and moon rising at the same time. I pictured 2 heavenly bodies in different parts of the sky. found out it's a lunar eclipse... so not what I envisioned seeing. I just saw a kick ass red sunset. today marks the 12th day in a row I've been aquatic. with the jellyfish invasion in 10 days I have a feeling I can make my goal of being aquatic 20 days straight.

Pac-10 Swimming
the conference of champions will hold its Pac-10 women's swimming championships on 02.27.08. last season at the NCAA championships, 3 of the 9 Pac-10 women's swimming teams placed in the top 5 w/ Arizona #2, Cal #3 and Stanford #4.

Nip / Tuck - Season Finale

current song: Don't Stop the Music by Rihanna on Power 104.3 FM

tell me what you don't like about yourself? Candy Richards, a D-lister who had a guest appearance on Sean's show as Pussy Lips, went to Thailand to get plastic surgery to avoid Hollywood paparazzi. she got butchered there. 1 breast bigger than the other, eyes look like she can't blink at all (she says she has the deer in headlights look), lips triple or quadruple natural size. she's a freak. she wants doctors to fix her so she can appear on tv shows. she's on operating table w/ Fame by Irene Cara played in background. cops seen outside operating room. Christian tells Sean and Liz that Julia's been shot.

at hospital Eden's giving her phony report to a police officer. Sean's like: you're lying... why would Julia kill herself?... why wouldn't she leave a note?... why would she do this to her kids?... you're not telling us everything Eden. Olivia's like: oh no you didn't Sean... back off... don't put your guilt on my 18 year old daughter... you don't even know Julia and what she's capable of. he goes to see Julia.

Christian's at Julia's side. he thinks that she tried to kill herself because of him. Sean's like: you're so full of yourself. so Sean's the only one who believes Julia didn't try to kill herself. she has some swelling in her brain and will be a coma for who knows how long.

back at the office Christian's w/ Darlene, an amputee. she lost her legs due to diabetes. apparently she recreated w/ Christian 25 years ago. I'm thinkin': hmmm... Amy's around that age. she saw him in his Playgirl spread and recognized him and his huge personality. apparently he doesn't remember her. she's like: I remember you cuz I lost my virginity to you... and we have a daughter (yup it's Amy)... and she slept w/ your son.

in another room at their practice, Sean's with Annie who's feeding the fish in the kick ass aquarium. Sean's like: no matter what... I love you. she's like: is something wrong w/ mommy? there's shouting in some other part of the practice. Colleen's making a scene. she's like: look at my wrists Sean... look at what you did to me?... how can I open up a bread and breakfast when guests will see my wrists and think suicide lady? she violated the restraining order. Christian and Sean throw her out. she tells Sean: you'll be sorry. Christian calls her a freak.

back at Christian's place there's a family meeting. Amy tells her mom Darlene everything and so she knows she slept w/ her brother Matt. Christian delivers the best line at this point and says to Matt: you cannot sleep w/ your sister again. the kids are like: at the time we didn't know we're related... it's the most I felt that intense about someone else. gross. Christian tells something to Matt, basically that Matt's frelled up in the head. Matt's like: like father like son Christian. and I'm thinkin': it is like father like son cuz they both like to recreate and take a woman's virginity... but Christian and Darlene are not brother and sister. Christian and Darlene have dranks. I know he's gonna recreate w/ her.

Sean's filming a scene for his show. in the scene he asks an assistant for a scalpel... and it's Colleen who's holding it. he's like: how did you get on set?... security get this freak outta here. it takes about 6 burly guards to get rid of her.

so Christian and Darlene have been having dranks for hours cuz it's now night. Christian's like: I have 3 kids and I only take care of the kid that's not mine, meaning Wilbur. they talk a little more. she feels like she's an 8... but because she's an amputee she feels like a 4. she cries and they they kiss. next scene she's spread eagle w/ Christian on top of her recreating like crazy. in the morning Christian's like: I must have drank a lot. Darlene drinks like that everynight. she wants him to fix her face.

Candy Richards is excited cuz she's healing and she looks kick ass. she about to have a role on Ghost Whisperer. Sean tells her to stay in bed. Gary Gold, the hot shot talent agent's partner, wants to talk to Sean. Gary's the hot shot's life partner and doesn't believe he would go to Africa and suspects foul play. Sean goes home and when he opens his closet, hot shot still stuffed w/ teddy bear filling and teddy bear eyes in place of his eyes falls out and drops to the floor. cops come by... Sean's still in shock... Colleen's in Tijuana. yeah right.

at the practice Christian and Sean work on Darlene. they're like: we got caught up in Hollywood. Christian feels that if he too didn't get so caught up trying to be famous, he wouldn't have posed for Playgirl, Darlene wouldn't have seen him, Amy wouldn't have gone to Hollywood, he wouldn't have introduced her to Matt, and his 2 kids wouldn't have recreated each other. Liz is like: you guys are trying so hard to be famous... you guys have respect... you work on amazing cases... good things will come that way. how powerful.

Julia's awake! Eden freaks out. Olivia's on her way to the hospital. Eden's like: mommy you have to help me. does she tell Olivia everything? I think she does.

paparazzi's outside the practice cuz Candy Richards called them. she wanted to appear on the front pages. she steps out... nobody's taking her pic. they're more interested in Sean. they're like: what's wrong w/ your agent?... did you shoot your wife?

at the hospital Julia has amnesia. she doesn't know anyone. Olivia looks relieved and so I think Eden must have told her everything. Christian takes Annie for burgers and fries. Sean's alone w/ Julia. he tells her that they're college sweethearts, they're still married, they have 3 kick ass kids... everything's perfect. not so. on their way to get food, the paparazzi stalk Christian and Annie. they get away. their tiny Prius gets hit by a huge SUV.

at the practice Sean's getting ready for his next patient. Christian's all bandaged up. and I'm thinkin' it must be Annie on the table. she's worried about having a scar on her forehead. kick ass Liz tells Annie that her dad's the best doctor on the planet. he told Christian that he doesn't want anymore of this Hollywood lifestyle and that he quit his show. he wants a normal life cuz of all the drama that's happened.

Sean finishes fixing Annie up. Liz leaves. in comes Colleen, she stabs Sean 4 times in the back and he's seen bleeding to death.

Aquatic & Democratic Caucus

current song: I Heard It Through The Grapevine by Marvin Gaye on Oldies 107.9 FM

breast stroke to station 2, 1st half arms only. no rest.
sand run to station 3 back to station 1. that's it.

got to Ala Moana beach late today and had to leave early. I told Gail that I would try to get to Farrington High School to help out w/ the democratic caucus being held at the school library. caucus supposed to start at 19:00... got there about 18:15 thinking hardly anybody's gonna be there and that there'd be lots of parking. totally wrong. no parking near the library parking lot or even near the library. drove through school and ended up parking near auditorium. at that point I realized I could have parked at home and the walk to the library would have been shorter.

so the line to register and get into the library... very very long. good thing I ran into a friend near the library entrance. he too supports Hillary Clinton. she kicks ass. ran out of registration forms that I kept asking for. by the time I got to some official person the non-he at the front told me I needed to go fill out a form before I got to non-him. non-he said that there's a table outside the library where I could register. I explained to non-him that there's no table... and I've been told that they ran out of forms. I wanted to snap at non-him.

so I spoke to someone else. she said there's no forms... just write down info on this piece of paper. stood in line again. didn't want to go to the same non-guy and I went to this real dude. I presented him the piece of paper. he's like: you need to fill out this form. he had an actual form that I've been asking for the entire time. told him: are you serious?... I was told to just write down my info on this piece of paper... that's ok... I'm gonna leave cuz I don't wanna stand in line again. as I walked away he chased me down and asked for my ID. my info was in the computer from the last election. so I'm thinkin': cool. got to vote for Hillary and shortly after, off to vball.

MPSF Volleyball - UCLA 3, UH 0

current song: Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol on KSSK 92.3 FM

#5 UCLA swept #15 Hawaii last night. UCLA improves to 7-4 and UH falls to 3-5 in the conference. Wednesday's match went 5 games, with Hawaii winning the 5th set 15-13. for that match the announcers pointed out that UCLA committed 33 service and 32 hitting errors, which accounted for 52% of Hawaii's points. that's basically 2 games right there. last night UCLA played in system and managed to use their quick hitters (UCLA does not call them middle blockers anymore).

in the latest CSTV/AVCA poll all 3 Pac-10 men's volleyball teams rank in the top 10. #5 UCLA, #9 USC, and #10 Stanford.

last night, #9 USC lost to #3 Long Beach State in 4 sets. USC is now 6-6 in the conference. also #10 Stanford defeated Pacific in 5 games. Stanford is now 5-5 in the conference and will play current #1 BYU next week Friday. go Cardinal!

Lost - Sayid in Berlin flashforward ep

current song: The Stone by Ashes Divide on Star 101.9 FM

Sayid is in the Sayshells playing golf on a course he has all to himself. some guy comes up to him to give his 2 cents on what club to use. they make a friendly bet as to who can hit the ball closer to the hole. the guy wins and asks Sayid what he does for a living. Sayid's like: I don't work... I'm one of the Oceanic 6 survivors. the guy looks worried. he's like: don't worry about the money. Sayid knows who this guy is... calls him Mr. Avelino... and shoots him. wow.

Sayid's in Berlin. he meets this lady Elsa in a coffee shop. he tells her he's a head hunter, which I thought was funny. she works for some economist who only pages her once or twice a year to go shopping for him. I'm thinkin': will he kill her? or is he after her boss? he tells her that he's in Berlin for a week. they hang out. one night they plan to go to the opera. she's like: I'm not gonna bring my pager... I don't care if he pages me tonight of all nights. he's like: I'll carry your pager for you... I don't want you to get fired over me. so I know he's after her boss cuz otherwise she would have been dead already.

one night they're in her hotel room. they just recreated. she tells him that she doesn't know a thing about him except that he's one of the Oceanic 6. she also asks him why he's still in Berlin. she tells Sayid that she loves him. I'm thinkin': ok... Sayid has fallen into a trap cuz on the island he fell for Hurley's dramatic performance in Ben's home where he told Sayid that Locke put him in the closest and left with the group.

Sayid tells Elsa that she must leave Berlin. she's like: frell you... you were using me to get to my boss? she goes to the bathroom and is crying. when he goes to comfort her she shoots him. she talks to her boss, boss wants Sayid alive. he throws something at the bathroom mirror. she's like: what the frell are you doing? he grabs his gun from his jacket and shoots her.

Sayid is then seen at what I thought to be a vet clinic cuz there's all these dogs in cages. he's talkin' to somebody. at 1st I thought it was Jack. turns out it's Ben. so Ben's not the guy in the coffin. now I'm thinkin' it's Locke. basically something happened on the island where now Sayid works for Ben to protect his friends. Ben gives Sayid a list of names for Sayid to head hunt. I'm guessin' Sayid's protecting his friends who decided to stay on the island. also if Ben made it off the island unofficially, who else left?

on the island it's been 100 days they've been there. only interesting thingthat happened there was when Dan radioed the ship to send some payload. the ship fires the payload. Regina, the lady on the ship is counting down the distance: 30 meters... 25 meters... etc... it should be there. but the payload isn't there. later on Dan sees the payload flying in. he has 2 sets of timers. apparently there's a 30 minutes delay.

Sayid promised the rescuers that he would get Charlotte from Locke. if so then he wants off the island. basically all this drama happened and in the end he exchanged Myles for Charlotte. he gets to go off the island. Dan tells Frank to stay on a specific flight path. they take Naomi. oh... she had a bracelet on w/ an inscription: I'll always love you. Elsa, when Sayid killed her, also had a bracelt on that looked similar. so Frank, Sayid, and Desmond are on the helicopter on its way to the ship.

Project Runway - Metropolitan Museum of Art Inspiration ep

current song: Pop Bottles by Birdman on Da Bomb 102.7 FM

3 of you will make it to Fashion Week and 2 of you will be out.

designers take final field trip to Metropolitan Museum of Art. they have the whole place to themselves. sweet. the place is huge and so they only get to go to 3 different galleries - Greek & Roman, European paintings and Egypt. they're given cameras and take pics that will be the inspiration for their design. Sweet P goes crazy and takes hundreds of pics. they have a $300 budget.

Aphrodite is Rami's muse. hmmm... what will he do? oh yeah... draping. I've never heard of the word/term draping until this season. Christian likes this Spanish painting and will create a military outfit. hmmm... what will he do? oh yeah... a jacket and pants outfit. hmmm... what will Jillian make? oh yeah... a coat. don't know what Chris will do. Sweet P's inspired by a peacock.

in the workroom the ladies get catty. Christian works very fast. to Jillian, he's like: don't get bitchy. Chris gets done really quickly and takes a nap. he commented on Rami's outfit saying: why make another one of those dresses? and yet Chris' outfit looks like the one he and sister Christian made in the Avant Garde challenge.

on the day of the runway Christian's like: I have to make my hair look fierce. Jillian's completing her outfit last minute again. she made jacket. Rami stuck to his style. Christian does make a fancy lookin' jacket and pants outfit. I have to admit she knows what she's doing. Sweet P's outfit looks like a regular dress except it doesn't look like a regular dress cuz the fabric already has fancy colors and some print design.

Christian's wins. Jillian's 2nd. Sweet P is out. to Rami, the judges are like: you have been consistent... you have been safe... but frell... can we see something new? to Chris, they're like: we know you can create drama... but frell... can we see something new? Chris is in... Rami too. they're gonna have a mini-battle to determine who's in and who's out. each will present 3 of their strongest designs in their collection to the judges. the winner will be at the finals.

I hope Chris wins. but so far whoever I want to win hasn't. Nick/Don didn't win the Amazing Race. New England didn't win the Super Bowl. my favs didn't win the Australian Open. same w/ some vball games.

America's Next Top Model - Exposed Part 2 ep

current song: Good Life by Kanye West on Power 104.3 FM

memorable photo shoots included Robin and Shannon where they didn't want to pose nude... well not really nude cuz they wore/modeled diamonds. Robin got all holier than thou and refused even though she flashed Mr. J and unknown to her, to Tyra as well. I remembered a shoot where Joanie and Jade got their crunk on.

memorable spokesmodels... a lot. tonight's ep showed the girls in Japan pitching soup, the girls in Australia talkin' w/ an Aussie accent, Bre w/ her raspy voice selling Top Model chocolate. best has to be Jade where all she's doing is waving to people, blowing kisses to them, spinning around, lookin' like a drag queen... and saying nothing except: frell.

fauna phobia... Robin and the snake, Eva and the tarantula, Nicole and the pigeons, Gina and the cockroach. didn't show girls posing w/ crocodile in S. Africa or bull in Spain. I just remembered the underwater shoot where April kicked ass.

tonight's show also showed memorable go-sees and catfights. so may pop into my head. tonight showed Robin doing an excorism on Ebony, Bianca telling Saleisha that she's plus-size and to check her thighs in the mirror. I should end this post otherwise it'll be quite long. cycle 10 begins next week... hopefully I can pick the winner this time cuz last correct pick was Eva and that was cycles ago.

Nip / Tuck - Fugly TV Critic ep

current song: Shawty Is A Ten by The Dream on Hot 93.9 FM

in the breakroom Liz reads an article about Sean's tv show. a tv critic blasts Sean writing stuff like: he's so boring he can cure insomnia... he can stop global warming cuz people will turn off their tv sets... he's got a face like a brown paper bag. Liz wants to hide the article, Christian's laughing, Sean overhears them... he's hurt.

on the set of his show Sean's still disturbed by what the critic wrote. his ex-girlfriend co-star's like: don't worry about it... he said worse stuff about me... but it hurts more when a guy you're recreating w/ critiques you. scratch. I assume she remembers the time he told her off about doing a #2 in the jacuzzi. Sean's like: I'm sorry... are you okay?... are we cool? she's like: we're cool if you tell the critic off at the coffee shop he works at. Sean goes to the coffee shop, spots the fugly tv critic. he's like: you're criticizing my looks?... you should look at yourself... you're fugly. tv critic's stunned, Sean's happy.

tell me what you don't like about yourself? tv critic's in consult. he wants to look good so that some lady worker at the coffee shop notices him. he tells Sean that if he makes him look good then he'll make Sean look good in another review. Sean's like: this is so unethical... but ok, I'll do it. tv critic's on the operating table... voila... he's transformed.

Sean and tv critic go to the coffee shop to show off his new face. worker there starts talking to the tv critic. he's like: I'd like to thank you for your critique... I starred on NCIS and thanks to you look where I am now... I was on the verge of superstardom and now I work at this coffee shop. tv critic's still the same mean person and tells the fallen star off. so what does the coffee worker do? he throws and empties an entire pot of scalding coffee on the tv critic's new face. he has 3rd degree burns and coffee worker goes to jail. at least now he doesn't have to pay rent.

Christian interviews Amy. tell me what you don't like about yourself? she has a huge birthmark on her face. in her southern accent she's like: are you serious? he's like: I don't assume anything... is something wrong w/ your nose?... where are you from? she's like: bless your heart... I'm from New Jersey... oh... we have the same sense of humor... bless your heart... I'm actually from Georgia. it's the 1st time she's left the south. she has no money, she gives him a swan song, he fixes her up for free. she sees herself in the mirror. she's like: oh my God... I'm so fugly... oh... I need lipstick. they're off to have lunch. Christian wants to set up Matt and Amy. Matt knows what his dad is up to and tells him that he's happy w/ Rachel.

Rachel has had 6 operations. no progress. she wants to go back home to Tel Aviv. basically she used Matt for recreation. she thinks he's too clingy. she breaks up w/ him. he's upset. he's like: have you seen yourself?... frell you. he storms out of her room, he sees Amy crying in another room. he's like: is everything ok?... do you want to have lunch?

Matt's definition of lunch is to recreate. Amy's like: I'm glad you're the 1st person I recreated w/... this has been an awesome trip out west... I got a new face, I got to meet my dad for the 1st time... and my dad and I have the same sense of humor. oops... Christian's her dad too. they go to some online incest site to help them figure out their feelings and justify what they just did. they're like: well... normally siblings are attracted to each other... but because they're normally raised together they repulse one another... but if they're grown apart and meet then there will be a natural attraction. whatever.

Christian has his own drama w/ Julia. Julia catches him recreating w/ some lady he met at a gas station. she's like: how could you?... you're a fugly person inside and out... I can forgive you but I can't forget what you've done... I gave up Olivia for you... she's been there for me in sickness and in health... frell you.

Julia tells Olivia about her affair w/ Christian. she still loves Julia. she sees all the hair that's falling out in Julia's comb. she sends the samples to some lab in Virginia. report gets back to Julia and she finds out she has mercury in her body. at the same time Eden's like: do you want some fruitcake? Julia thanks her and takes it to her room... but of course she has it tested. and it does contain mercury.

Julia confronts Eden. she says that she has proof and will send her to jail. Eden's like: I loved making your food... I loved watching you slowly get sick... but I will turn myself in. instead she grabs Julia's gun and shoots her.

went to Ala Moana Beach w/ Sheila this afternoon. it's only my 9th and her 2nd time this year. for a guy who wanted to improve his swimming before Ann starts going back to the beach after giving birth, I really haven't become aquatic that often. only a few months ago I would go to the beach 9 or more days in a row. chillaxin' day today. swam to station 2 (breast stroke - arms only) and talked story for a long time before swimming back (breast stroke - arms only) to station 1.

MPSF / Pac-10 Volleyball - USC 3, UCLA 0

current song: Apologize by Timbaland on Hot 93.9 FM

#11 USC upset #4 UCLA in 3 games this past Wednesday at UCLA. USC beat UCLA in every aspect of the game... from kills, hitting %age, and digging. can't say UCLA played out of system cuz it looked like they played well. I noticed USC kept getting lots of soft blocks which allowed the team to dig the balls. kick ass AVP player and former Bruin Jeff Nygaard had his UCLA jersey retired. he's like: they're makin' me feel old... I'm not even done playing the game.

Stanford, the final and 3rd Pac-10 team in the MPSF currently ranks #9. I always wondered why Cal doesn't have a men's vball team.

Lost - Rescue Team flashbacks ep

current song: A Bay Bay by Hurricane Chris on Power 104.3 FM

flashback Massachusetts. on the news some underwater guys in their fancy submersibles found the wreckage of the airplane in a trench off Bali. the guy Dan who seems to be crazy is like: I should know this... this is so familiar to me. Dan's the guy who Jack and Kate see parachute from the helicopter and asks: are you Jack? in the end of last week's ep. hmmm... maybe this is a flashforward and Dan's crazy because of whatever happened to him on the island and perhaps he saw an old news story making him say whatever he said.

flashback California. on the radio more news about the flight and discovery of the plane. Myles enters this lady's house. he's a ghost hunter and can talk to spirits. I think the lady wants him to talk to his grandson who died/got murdered earlier in the day. he uses this device that looks like a vacuum to help him out. the spirit tells him where the grandson's drugs and perhaps drug money are. he charged the lady $200 for his services... but gave her some money back cuz he kept the drug money for himself.

Dan's fancy phone broke. Kate says she has a fancy phone. Dan communicates w/ another team member. other team member doesn't want to be heard on speaker phone. they see he has a gun. Jack and Kate are like: what the frell? Dan says that he, his team, and the ship all have GPS devices. the next morning they get a signal and find Myles on some rocks near the shore. Jack approaches him and Myles is immediately pointing a gun at him. Kate's about to reach for Dan's gun... but Myles is like: back off... they killed Naomi... she said to tell her sister I love her which is our distress code cuz she doesn't have a sister... Jack would be telling Kate right now to tell her that he loves his sister... so back the frell off Kate. w/ their guns in hand Dan and Myles want to find the other members of their team. but 1st he wants to find Naomi. I'm guessin' he wants to talk to her. they find her, he talks to her spirit, and he finds out Jack and Kate were telling the truth that they didn't kill her. so... what was he brought on the island for? is he to communicate w/ the Others killed in the Purge?

meanwhile at the beach Sayid and Juliet are like: hmmm... what's going on?... where are Jack and the other people?... where are our rescuers?... do we still have guns?

flashback Tunisia. flight 815 also made the papers there too. Charlotte doesn't believe that they're all dead. there's a discovery of some bones in the north African desert... not of a dinosaur but a polar bear. and I'm thinkin': yeah right... like the polar bear on the island. the translator is like... what's a polor bear doing here? Charlotte digs around and she finds a collar w/ dharma and some symbol on it. I'm like: what the frell?... is Tunisia somehow the exact opposite end of the earth from the island? and Charlotte must be part of the dharma group.

so Charlotte has parachuted and is dangling on a tree cliff over water. she releases herself, lands in the water and is all happy for being alive. she looks up sees Locke and his posse. oh... Locke somehow can now predict the weather. Ben must be shocked to see Locke alive and well leading everyone. when the rain stops Locke says that they have to make a stop at the cabin. Hurley's like: the cabin's the other way... oh... I thought you meant the plane cabin. Locke must have been testing Hurley. Ben must have been surprised that Hurley can see that cabin.

Charlotte's asking lots of questions like: how many of you survived?... did you have this baby on the island? Locke's like: shut up everybody don't give her information. he tells her that they don't want to be rescued.

searching for their other team members Dan or Myles picks up another signal. it's Charlotte's. she's running away from something. apparently her fancy GPS device is attached to kick ass dog Vincent. Jack's like: Locke's got her. oh... at one point Sayid and Juliet w/ guns in hand rescue Jack and Kate by shooting at Myles and Dan.

flashback Bahamas. at some tour agency Frank's watching the news and realizes that the pilot shown on the tv is not the pilot. he calls Oceanic, talks to some higher up and is like: I know that that's not the pilot... I know him and he doesn't have his wedding ring... I know cuz I was supposed to fly the plane.

his fancy phone is broken. he shoots a flare. Jack, Kate, Sayid, Myles, Dan and Juliet reach Frank. Juliet's treating Frank's head cut. he's asking her what's your name? she's like Juliet last name... and he's like: hey... you're a native... your name wasn't on the manifest. Myles freaks out. Jack wants to know why they're really there. they're there to get Ben.

when Charlotte sees the flare she runs towards it and gets shot twice. like she's gonna die. of course she has a vest. Ben shot her. why didn't he aim for her head if he wanted to kill her? Locke wants to shoot Ben... but Ben's like: I have secrets... her name is Charlotte (and he spits out all this info on her)... her team members are... (again spitting out information). he knows they're after him cuz he has a mole on their ship.

oh... there was a flashback w/ Naomi and that dude who visited Hurley in the flashforward. she called Dan a mad man, Myles a ghost hunter, Charlotte an anthropologist, and Frank a drunk. the guy's like: they all were specifically chosen for this mission... you have no worries because there are no survivors.

in next week's ep Sayid's like: be prepared for a war. now is this like a dharma civil war? I mean Charlotte seems pleased to find the polar bear collar and is on a mission to get Ben.

Project Runway - WWE Divas ep

current song: Loser by Beck on Star 101.9 FM

Ricky won last week's challenge and gets to decide if he wants to switch models. he stays w/ his model, eliminating the other... he doesn't cry. Heidi doesn't explain the challenge. at their rooms the contestants are like: hmmm... maybe we'll do a cocktail dress... maybe we'll work w/ a celebrity.

Tim takes them on a short field trip... an elevator ride, to the judging room. they hear all these screams and shouts. contestants are like: hmmm... what's going on?... sounds like something raunchy's goin' on in there. so there's a wrestling ring w/ the WWE Divas showing off their moves. the contestants need to design an outfit for them. Chris of course is excited. no tears from Ricky yet.

Ricky chooses Layla cuz he got a latina vibe from her. when he meets w/ her in the design room he says something like: it's gonna be a 1 piece. so I'm thinkin': hmmm... East German blue swimsuit... can't be good. he chooses orange material and does make a swimsuit. he had to borrow something from sister Christian. she's like: I didn't wanna help him... but his design is fugly anyway.

sister Christian's Diva Kristal likes leather and lace. I'm thinkin': ok... he's gonna make a jacket and pant outfit again. and he does. looks nice though. she and Kristal, even Tim are like: this is fierce... this is fierce.

Sweet P chooses the current champion Candice Michelle. Candice has this dramatic entrance where she rips open her cape coat and shows off her personality. so Sweet P does something similar... but her outfit according to Tim looks like a hospital gown. her client's not impressed too. she's like: I can get this in some store... I want more frills on this. so Sweet P doesnt' know what to do. she doesn't want to go overboard and feel the wrath of the judges. Rami's like: you should do what you want to do. so she keeps it conservative.

Rami's outfit was ok... same w/ Jillian. I really like Chris' outfit. for one thing he, his client Maria, and myself have a thing for leopards. his design has all these straps. he's like: she's like a caged animal. his design kicked ass. he said he wants to wear it. at judging he too had a leopard pattern. he wins. Sweet P and Ricky are the bottom 2. Ricky... you are out. I'm surprised he didn't cry.

America's Next Top Model - Exposed Part 1

current song: Stronger by Kanye West on Power 104.3 FM

basicallly a recap of the past 9 cycles. got to see my fav contestant of all time again... Joanie... even though briefly. it's only the 1st 3 cycles that my fav model wannabe won for that cycle. Bianca looks better now than she did when she appeared on the show. Heather's still hot. Eva still looks good too. same w/ Toccara.

I don't remember the bar fight where Tiffany said 'she poured beer on my weave'. got to see Camille say 'this is my signature walk... and it's gonna make me famous'. Heather said something new: it's like feeding meats to starving dogs. no clips of Jade though saying stuff like: I like elephants... they're ancient beasts... they are after all part of the dinosaur family.

got to see Natasha recreate w/ the house phone and also her moblie while talking to her husband. got to see Bre say: Kim... you're ugly, you have an ugly personality and God doesn't like ugly. then of course Nicole's like: I like you're personality. and of course there's Kim in the limo w/ her lesbian lip lock saying: 1 down 11 more to go.

I can go on and on. can't wait for cycle 10 to start.

Nip / Tuck - Donna Mills Catwoman ep

current song: Pop Lock & Drop It by Huey on Hot 93.9 FM

tell me what you don't like about yourself? Donna Mills' a socialite who interviews Christian not the other way around. she actually wanted to work w/ Sean but he's busy w/ Colleen and his publicist Bliss. Donna and her uber-wealthy divorced socialite lady friends plan a dinner w/ potential doctors to interview/get to know to replace their retiring plastic surgeon. at the dinner they exchange pleasantries, chat and size each other up. w/ the sound of a thud on his dinner plate, Christian shows everyone his huge personality. ladies (and guys) taken aback. he has the job cuz no other doctor can trump what he calls his ace of spades.

he's shown recreating w/ all of Donna's lady friends. while recreating he's pointing out their flaws and what needs to be done. sure enough they're on the table getting their flaws corrected and fixed. I don't remember seeing Joan Van Ark recreating on Knots Landing but she's a cowgirl on Nip/Tuck. Donna's not shown recreating w/ Christian. in his office she tells him she wants to bring out the inner feline in her. she tells him: you're an artist. he believes this and proceeds w/ her transformation. in the operating room he has all these pics of big cats like tigers and leopards.

in the recovery room Donna's all bandaged up and her lady friends are sipping champagne, excited for the reveal. Joan Van Ark's shocked. she drops her champagne glass and it shatters on the floor. ooooo... how dramatic. basically Donna's off her meds. her friends tell Christian to fix her or else.

Sean meanwhile has to contend w/ Eden, Kimber and Ram Peters... which I think is a funny name. Eden's now a porn starlet. she made her 1st film w/ Kimber. in their scene they're looking at each other through a mirror frame... cuz Eden's the young virgin Kimber. because Kimber's w/ Ram now, she only recreates w/ other girls on set. in their recreating scene Eden asked Kimber to hit her. she does and basically smashed Eden's eye/face. so... Sean to the rescue to repair Eden.

Eden wants out of her contract w/ Ram's production company. they're discussing her next film. she's supposed to be some maid who in the end becomes a madam. she's like: but I'm the star. Kimber's like: oh no you didn't say that... show some respect. Eden's like: Kimber you will never be me... you can never be 18 again... Ram dear... you know its youth that sells... not nostalgia. how powerful. and Kimber again is like: oh no you didn't.

Sean wants to help Eden so he wants to pay Ram and buy out her contract. Ram's like: you dirty old man... she better be worth it. to get Eden out of her contract Ram wants Sean to maintain his geriatric lady pornstars. he says that they can work twice as much and he pays them a tenth of what he would pay a young starlet. he agrees to fix the broken hips and joints of Ram's cash cows. Eden gets a copy of her contract and tears it apart.

Colleen pays a visit to Eden. she gives Eden one of her bears she specially created for her. Eden's like: you're creepy... oh my gawd... you're in love w/ Sean. oh... Colleen, who stalks Sean, overheard their conversation the other night. so Colleen's like: you should have heard what Ram, Sean and the other guys on the set want to do w/ you. Eden's devastated. initially she's like: but Sean loves me. but in the end she recreated w/ Ram, who he calls her his baby girl. Kimber's disgusted cuz he's recreating w/ the both of them in the same bed. but Ram's like: that's why I love you Kimber... you know how hard it is in this business... you understand money. smooth.

Colleen also got exposed by Bliss. Bliss is shoppin' at some mall and she sees Colleen in her teddy bear making kiosk. Sean, Bliss and Colleen all yell and shout. Colleen hasn't been an agent since the 80s. she's not even registered. at the end of a busy work day when Sean wants to just have a drank Colleen somehow got into his house, slashed her wrists and is seen bleeding on a patio couch.

in a preview of next weeks ep it's implied that Julia's illness may be caused by Eden giving her mercury as a honey substitute.

Super Bowl 42 - NY Giants win

current song: Don't Stop The Music by Rihanna on Da Bomb 102.7 FM

today the NY Giants won Super Bowl XLII. I don't really have a favorite NFL team... I just wanted the Patriots to win to deny Eli Manning a championship. I'm sure he's nice and all... but I still can't forget how he acted like a spoiled brat during the draft while Pat Tillman gave up millions to serve the country. opposite ends of whatever spectrum. I spoke w/ Salcove today and she wanted NY to win... she talked about how Tiki Barber spoke lowly of Eli and so she wanted the Giants to win... sorta like in your face Tiki. he and his wife, by the way, appeared on Project Runway... and designer sister Christian said: I love Asians... Asians are fierce.

the funny thing is that I planned to go to the beach today cuz I figured it'd be empty and I'd have the place to myself. w/ the game close until the end (I assume awesome ratings for Fox) and w/ heavier rains than I expected, I actually watched Eli and his team win.

I got to see a few commercials. I liked the Planters commercial where this fugly girl attracted all these guys cuz she used the peanuts as perfume. I also liked the Coca-Cola commercial where these characters were fighting over a Coke above the city. didn't watch the half-time show. would have rather seen someone current like Rihanna.

I do hope there's no jellyfish invasion tomorrow cuz the beach should be empty due to the Superbowl (go Patriots) and the not so friendly beach weather. I do hope I get the beach to myself... well at least the shallows.

Nip / Tuck - Cannibal Newlywed Wife ep

current song: Clumsy by Fergie on Hot 93.9 FM

I saw a clip of Sarah Silverman and Matt Damon singing I'm recreating Matt Damon. pretty funny. if I end my solar day w/ a laugh or smile, I know I had an awesome day.

tell me what you don't like about yourself? newlywed couple in consult explaining what happened during non-honeymoon. stuck in the snow for days. wife hypoglycemic... needed nourishment. husband cut pieces of his arm, cooked flesh w/ car lighter, and fed wife. he didn't want to lose her. AWWW. they want his arm back to normal. she pukes in trash can during consult. she's pretty. husband undergoes surgery. in recovery room he has reactions. needs to go to hospital. wife confesses that she wanted to nourish back her husband to health. she cut out pieces of flesh in her arm and fed it raw to her husband. Sean's like: don't you know how disgusting and bacteria filled human flesh is? husband reacting positively to antibiotics. wife undergoes plastic surgery for her arm... but will not heal completely.

Christian and Liz are at Gina's funeral service. it's packed... SRO. they're surprised that Gina touched so many lives. they're glad at the turnout. 1st speaker spoke for everyone. he's like: she's the best I've ever had. 2nd speaker goes up. he's like: she's the best I've ever had. 3rd speaker goes up. she's like: she's the best I've ever had. so basically Gina recreated w/ everyone in the room... well except for Liz. 1 speaker recreated w/ Gina only once. he's the guy who gave her AIDS. she forgave him.

Christian hasn't told Wilbur that his mom Gina's dead. he asks his dad where's momma? Christian's like: I killed her... I was horny and I wanted to recreate... I recreated her off the balcony. speaking of recreation, Christian recreates w/ Wilbur's preschool teacher. she says that Wilbur still bites the other children. Christian does not believe this and doesn't want his son to get kicked out of school. he wants stability for Wilbur. he's like: what can I do for this preschool? next thing you know they're recreating and she bites Christian on the neck like a vampire. so she's the one who's biting the children. he plans to turn her in and match his bite mark and the children's bite marks via her teeth impressions. teacher tries to outsmart Christian and gets her teeth capped. she still gets fired. Christian in the end of the ep gives Wilbur a kick ass puppy. what an awesome dad. he tells Wilbur that whenever he thinks or misses his momma play w/ his kick ass puppy. he tells him his momma's not coming back.

Sean, while operating on newlywed husband, gets paid a visit by some hot shot talent agent and his posse. he's being recruited. Sharon Gless, who plays Colleen his talent agent, wants him to fix her hammer toes. she has a hobby of making teddy bears. in recovery she presents Sean w/ a bear dressed in medical garb and also can say 'tell me what you don't like about yourself'. while there the hot shot talent agent's telling Sean that the plane's ready for them to go to build houses for hurricane Katrina victims. Colleen's pissed. she arranges a meeting w/ hot shot at her apartment. he's like: you live here?... gross. she gives him a teddy bear she made w/ dentures in its mouth. she's like: this is you... you like to bite and spit people out. he's about to leave. she hits him w/ the Asti bottle he refused to have a drank w/ her earlier. he wakes up and he's duct taped to a chair. think Misery w/ James Caan. Sharon Gless kicks ass in this scene. totally different from her Cagney & Lacey days. don't remember much about that show... except they were kick ass cops. she takes out the duct tape from his mouth, puts a tube in it and fills him up w/ teddy bear stuffing material. she then tacks on teddy bear eyes on his eyes. she steals his blackberry and e-mail everyone that hot shot's gonna go to Africa. she and Sean are like: can we start over?

in next week's ep it's like a another blast from the CBS past. the women of Knots Landing will guest star. I thought Donna Mills and Nicollete Sheridan were pretty.

Lost - Season Premiere

current song: One In A Million by Aaliyah on Power 104.3 FM

papayas on TV screen. thinkin' would see helicopters landing picking up the survivors. instead car crashes into papayas. it's a car chase being shown all over the news. car crashes and cops tell the guy to get out. I'm thinkin' it would be Sawyer... but too obvious. so I'm thinkin' it has to be Hurley cuz he crashed his VW van into one of the Others in the last ep. it is him... and he's yelling stuff like: don't you know who I am?... I'm one of the Oceanic 6. so this is a flashforward. so he, Jack, Kate, perhaps Sawyer, the guy in the coffin and 1 other person were rescued. then again I'm just guessing Kate's w/ Sawyer. but in the end of tonight's ep Sawyer chose to go w/ Locke. so maybe Sawyer's not one of the 6. and if they're celebrities, wouldn't the guy in the coffin have more people at his memorial service?

on the island they're all like: the plan worked... we're gonna get rescued... we're gonna go home. Hurley gets aquatic. he's swimmin' around and sees Desmond. Charlie's dead. Jack talks to the guy w/ Naomi's fancy walkie-talkie. that guy wants to talk to her... but she's gone. Jack asks Ben where she went. don't know if he knows. but Ben's telling the French woman to get his daughter, actually her daughter, out of there as fast as she can. she punches him in the face. I think Kate said she found 2 trails. Jack tracks 1 and takes the French woman and Ben w/ him. Kate goes to the other. hmmm... this is boring.

Hurley and the guys at the beach have to meet Jack and everybody else. he's walking around the forest and can't keep up w/ Sawyer and the other guys. he comes across the house where Jacob is. there was someone sitting in a rocking chair... thought it was Locke... but don't think it was him. he and Locke are like: Jack shouldn't radio Naomi's people.

the flashforward. ok... so Hurley's at a store. he freaks out at the register and that's how the car chase begins. he's in a holding cell and the cop asks if he knows Ana Lucia. he says he didn't. why did he lie? when cop goes to get a donut Hurley freaks out. outside the 1way mirror/window it's like he's under the sea... sorta like how Charlie's in the Looking Glass station w/ the bad ass Soviet guy swimmin' outside. Hurley imagines water rushing in and freaks out. cop says he can put him in an institution. he's like: hooray.

so in the institution Hurley gets a visit from this dude who says he can put him in a fancy institution. he asks Hurley: are they still alive? so who's there? so I'm thinkin' again about the 6. Sun must be 1 of the 6 cuz she's pregnant and pregnant women die on the island. Jin could have found out that the baby's not his and so he must have stayed behind. Hurley also gets a visit from Charlie. I think he kept saying: they need you. Hurley also gets a visit from Jack. and Jack's like: did you say anything? and this is before Jack become insane himself.

I tried to watch Eli Stone... but couldn't get into it. kept thinking Ally McBeal and her theme song ep. sure enough he has this funky case and his theme song is Faith by George Michael. good thing Lost is on Thursdays. it will not interfere w/ Top Model or Project Runway on Wednesdays.
