Re: Favorite misheard song lyrics

I always thought that Bee Gees song went, "Ah—ah—ah—ah, stay in the line…" (as opposed to, uh, "Stayin' Alive")

Re: Professionalism (It's not what you think it is)

This is a fantastic post. I love everything about it.

Uh, except for the fact that you haven't read The Hunger Games. You must, HannahMosk! You must!!!

(Oh…sorry about that little outburst. People have probably shouted this at you before.)

:) Thanks again for a great post.

Re: On Being Productive…and Those Days Where You Really Aren't.

Hey, WritersBlockNZ! :) Thanks for your comment. I suppose that would be a good addition for people who have tried to be disciplined but simply cannot focus with Twitter on in the background. There are a couple of reasons I didn't include it on the list. Mainly, this: so much of being productive has...

Re: What's your favorite song that tells a story?

If I had to pick just one, I'd pick "EVERY LITTLE BIT" by Patty Griffin. Really, though, every single Patty Griffin song tells an amazing story. Other favorites are "MOSES," "RAIN," "TIME WILL DO THE TALKING," "MAKING PIES," and "LONG RIDE HOME." Deep, layered, subtle lyrics + an emotive voice + cre...

Re: Lost - Possible Spoilers!

Oh man, I don't know about Sun and Jin's reunion. Was I the only one who cringed when she started talking and Lupitis said, "Looks like she got her voice back!" No, you're not alone. I cringed, too (as did my husband and the friend who watched with us). Also, it bugged me that Sun's written message...

Re: Lost - Possible Spoilers!

Josin: nicely put. I completely agree with everything you said. Oh, so bittersweet, how we only have a few episodes left...but at least we'll know how it ends soon. PS: It would have been all kinds of awesome if the fence was still on. I shall settle for that sweet hug, though. It's been a looong ti...

Re: Lost - Possible Spoilers!

I agree with Nathan, Josin - it did seem to be an hour of proving your theory right. Much of it wasn't previously "known" information. Rather, it was previously guessed/suspected/theorized/hinted at information. My Lost-watching group is full of people who pick the show apart and love to theorize, a...

Re: Lost - Possible Spoilers!

I'm still enjoying the flash sideways. Actually, I'm suspicious of them; for some reason, I just have this feeling that they are actually flash forwards, somehow. Even though we aren't sure why we're seeing the sideways world or how it will eventually tie in with the overall story, I'm still intrigu...

Re: Lost - Possible Spoilers!

Ooooh, Josin, I like that! After your last post, I tried to imagine what you meant by it being like a tesseract - now that you've explained it a little more, it seems like you might be on to something. I like the way you connected the Donkey Wheel, the EM pulse, and the explosion with each dimension...

Re: Lost - Possible Spoilers!

Okay, my new theory: Perhaps the Smoke Monster = Aaron, through some trick of time travel. At some point in the future, baby Aaron could be reunited with the current crazy version of Claire, and thus be raised by a 'crazy mother.' Later, since everyone born on the Island is called back to it at some...

Re: Lost - Possible Spoilers!

Josin - Love your observation about Claire being 36 weeks (as opposed to the original 32). ABC - When you say you want to know about the Four-Toed Statue (I'm guessing that should be capitalized? Hmm.) do you mean you want to know what it is, or do you mean you want more info on its whole story? I'm...

Re: Lost - Possible Spoilers!

@maybegenius - Good point about the submarine. My only thought about that is that we know that Ethan was still on the Island when he was older, both as a young boy (we saw him with Ben when they kidnapped Rousseau's baby) and as a man (most everything else we've seen of him). Seems most likely that ...

Re: Lost - Possible Spoilers!

Since Ethan was on the island at the time of the original crash, it wouldn't make sense for him to be in Los Angeles at the same time. This seems to mean that the flight that didn't crash happened at a different time than the one that did, right? I don't think it necessarily means that the non-cras...

Re: Lost - Possible Spoilers!

My conclusion is that the "Flashsideways" are in a separate reality, as opposed to an alternate one (like bethsbooks mentioned earlier in the thread). Juliet said "It didn't work" to Sawyer, but dead Juliet said (to Miles) "It worked." I think both are true. I'm guessing the point of this is to exp...
