…and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Miss T and I took a jaunt out to Monterey earlier this month—we spent the majority of our time at and around Cannery Row, including, of course, the Monterey Bay Aquarium. If you haven’t been to Monterey, Cannery Row, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium, you can see what it looks […]

Lost ad for last Lost?

Wednesday, May 13th, 2009 by calixton

The Season 5 finale for Lost airs tonight (*sob* *choke*) and it seems kind of fitting that we found this ad for DHARMA Initiative Travel in a mid-1970s Oceanic Airlines INflight magazine. As usual, you can view the ad at maxpixpix on Flickr. Holy Hannah, Season 6 doesn’t start until February 2010!?! I, uh, guess […]

Weekend eats…

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009 by calixton

…five dishes, three restaurants. For some reason, at each place, one of the dishes we ordered came with mashed potatoes. (All the photos are at 5 Weekend Food photos at maxpixpix on Picasa.) Good think Miss T and I like mashed potatoes!

Plants vs Zombies…

[youtube 0N1_0SUGlDQ] …vs Video Games vs Girl-pop. Similar to how “Weird Al” Yanovic’s “The Saga Begins” tells the entire Star Wars: Episode I story in song*, Laura Shigihara’s “Zombies on Your Lawn” music video tells you about the game Plants vs Zombies in bubbly girl-pop. You can read more about the game and the music […]

…at night. Not all of Davis, just around Woodstock’s and The Candy House. Just a random spring night (a couple of weeks ago) in Davis.

The BHARMA Initiative

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009 by calixton

In case you were wondering if there are Lost fans in Spain—well, there must be. Otherwise, a DHARMA Initiative-themed bar like BHARMA would never have gotten off the ground. I tried finding out more about the bar at bharma.com, but the site was in Spanish, so I settled on reading the description I originally came […]

¡Feliz Seis de Mayo!

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009 by calixton

People in the U.S.—and, to a lesser extent, in Mexico—are celebrating Cinco de Mayo today, but if you’d like to extend (or delay) your celabración to Lost Wednesday, why not break out a few DHARMA Initiative food and drink items? If you’re short on DHARMA Initiative supplies of tequila, beer, green chiles, olives, and refried […]

Not Lost SPAM®

Monday, May 4th, 2009 by calixton

As mentioned in our last post, the DHARMA Initiative version of SPAM (DI Spiced Pork and Ham) made its appearance in Ben’s fridge back in 2004. But while clearing out some boxes from the storage room (a.k.a. the garage), I came across a 1973 magazine ad for DHARMA Initiative Spiced Pork and Ham. (You can […]
