No more Lost

Wednesday, May 30th, 2007 by calixton

After last week’s season finale of Lost, Miss T and I discussed the myriad possibilities that have opened up for next season. Then, I thought about the nine-month wait until the start of the Season 4. Then, I cried and cried and cried. Now it’s Wednesday again, and there’s no Lost, and I’m all out […]

The Strokes + 2001

Oh, so very cool.

Last Lost (for now)

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007 by calixton

The Lost season finale is tonight and I, like many fans out there, had designs on some celebration of this year’s two best hours of television. My initial thoughts were for a gathering where food, drink, and friends would be in abundance, and we would watch the finale on a 52-inch HDTV in Dolby 5.1 […]

Peanuts to that

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2007 by calixton

Miss T and I spent a lazy Friday driving the winding backroads between Yolo and Sonoma counties. Our destination? Santa Rosa. Our reason? Do you really need a reason to visit Santa Rosa? Actually, come to think of it, you probably do need a reason to visit Santa Rosa. So, again, our reason? The Schulz […]

Nuts to that

Thursday, May 17th, 2007 by calixton

I remember one Christmas when a vendor sent us a gift basket with an assortment of chocolates, candied popcorn, and mixed nuts. There were eleven of us in the design group, but it only took two of us, Sad Juggler and myself, to pick out all the cashews from the jar of nuts. Everyone else […]

Whole Earth Festival, man

Monday, May 14th, 2007 by calixton

This past Mother’s Day weekend Miss T and I met up with Programmer Girl and the post-NYC Wonderduo at UC Davis’ 2007 Whole Earth Festival. You can view photos from the Whole Earth Festival in this Max Pictures’ photo gallery. At first blush, the Whole Earth Festival might seem like so much hippy-dippy flower-wearing and […]

Lost condiment

Friday, May 11th, 2007 by calixton

Is there any better way to spice up a Lost island meal than with DHARMA Initiative Pepper Sauce? I think not. To that end, download the following PDF— DHARMA Initiative Pepper Sauce (5 and 12 OZ) —and transform your boring, real-world, Avery Island hot sauce into contrarily exotic yet generic DHARMA Initiative Pepper Sauce. The […]

First, a little math. It may be May 7th out here in the real world, but for the folks stuck on the Lost island, it’s still December 21st, 2004. Since time on the island seems to pass at a rate of roughly 30 days per year (about 90 days of island time have passed in […]

The good stuff

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2007 by calixton

The Hanso Foundation DHARMA Initiative may have been running mind games on its people (à la the Pearl Station’s useless data collection deal) but the group did seem to understand what people needed to stay happy—hot water, Mama Cass music, a sonic barrier to keep the black smoke away, regular food drops, and most important: […]
