I think in this case we should use the term “Heched” instead of ‘tweaked out’. As in, “Jeremy London heched outside of his hotel room last night, apparently trying to climb a tree.”
This here’s a game VG/SG likes to play called: “Fuck your ears”.
True story, my cat is named Bastian after the lead in Neverending Story. My other cat? Mr. Miyagi.
Is it just me or does Kristen Stewart soooooooooooooooooooo not look like she wants to be an actress in popular movies? What the hell is her deal? Every time the camera would pan to her in the audience last night (about every 2.5 seconds) she had this look of supreme irritation. I’m pretty sure she knew what she was getting into when she signed up to do be the “lynch pin” in the Twilight Saga between a VAMPIRE AND A WEREWOLF. We’re not talking Katherine Hepburn role choices here. So far, her most prominent roles have been a 1/2 vampire and Joan Jett. Someone needs to sit her down and give her a fame audit, cause she seems to be getting too high and mighty for her R. Pattz britches.

#6, FTW. Too funny.
SO TOTALLY a side note, but the other day I was parking in a public lot and had stepped out of my car and proceeded to put coins in the meter. All of a sudden I hear – what I thought sounded exactly like the smoke monster. Turns out? The sound was a parking ticket printing from the parking enforcement officer’s ticket printer thingy. Ha. God I’ll miss this show.
Uh, what about Aaron? Remember what a big deal they made out of him? Not to be raised by another, but ultimately, kind of was? HUH?
I agree with the flaw-workout-theory; I think some of our characters remained in ‘sideways’ land because they had more to atone for. Ben remained as did Eloise, who seemed to be still working through killing her son, given her convo with Desmond. Many of them were referenced to “not being ready” and also encounters such as Daniel and Charlotte lead the viewer to believe that they were making their way to moving on soon as well.
Overall, I approve of the finale. The framing with Jack’s eye opening and closing, that was so tidy and just…fantastic. Really well done.
However, think I’m sitting outside the church on the bench with Ben. I’m not ready to move on just yet! Can’t really believe it’s over. NO!
I’m with you, Bro. I left VG for a few months cause I had a baby…. and I just can’t keep up anymore. I need a Cliffnotes for VG. Or at the very least, a sort of inside-jokes-glossary. Is Steve Winwood is the new American Patriot? What happened to AmPat, anway? Can anyone help the Monsters left behind?

You know what makes him the worst DJ? The effed up lyrics. “…go on shake your body and do that thing…you do gottagarbblegobblegarbbleCONGA…everybody get in the conga, conga, CONGAHHHHHHHHH…”
Those lyrics aren’t even remotely close. There’s nothing more irritating. (To me.)
It was crap because it was unsatisfying. I think Gabe covered all the bases in his recap. We learned nothing of much value, and there’s only 3.5 hours left in the series. How are they going to cover all the bases? They aren’t. Which, crap.
This episode was CA-RAP. And I do not mean “the poo”. Bullshit. Garbage. I have now accepted that I will be overwhelmingly disappointed with the series finale. Anyhoo…
Is no one going to address the genius of “The island is a vampire”?! That’s it. Vampire Island. We’re done here.
P.S. I am a longtime VG commenter, and I have been away having a baby (thankyou). I have 245 unread VG posts in my Google Reader. How the hell am I supposed to catch up? Is someone in charge of the VG CliffNotes? Help?
Surely it was an oversight to not mention the Oscar Inspired Movie Menus as pairings for these cocktails from Epicurious.
May I suggest “A Jewish Family Dinner Circa 1967″ as inspired by “A Serious Man”. I don’t know about you, but any dinner followed by “circa 1967″ sounds like GOOD TIMES!!!!
Not for nuthin’, but I was a little bitter that we had an hour long Office which left no room for new “30 Rock”.
Also, “The Marriage Ref” can be a half hour. Really. Boooooooo, NBC.
