I’m Lost. Get it?

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

After watching a smattering of Lost Season 1 episodes, back on their original air dates — I felt it necessary to ask someone in the know what happened with the Series Finale.

Keith Beats had just finished watching it so he gave me the lowdown. It was like I heard Circus Music playing in my head the whole time throughout his description.

I have no idea what is up with that show.

Steeltown’s favorite son, James Forde, sent this through, and I couldn’t be more excited/baffled.

What is going on here?

Did Letterman lose a bet to Paul Shaffer sometime during the late 80′s?

No Football.

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

This is another reason why I don’t watch Football.

According to a Wall Street Journal study of four recent broadcasts, and similar estimates by researchers, the average amount of time the ball is in play on the field during an NFL game is about 11 minutes.

In other words, if you tally up everything that happens between the time the ball is snapped and the play is whistled dead by the officials, there’s barely enough time to prepare a hard-boiled egg. In fact, the average telecast devotes 56% more time to showing replays.

So what do the networks do with the other 174 minutes in a typical broadcast? Not surprisingly, commercials take up about an hour. As many as 75 minutes, or about 60% of the total air time, excluding commercials, is spent on shots of players huddling, standing at the line of scrimmage or just generally milling about between snaps.

11 Minutes. Lame. View the full article here.

Thanks, Internet.

I don’t know how these things work, but the internet just keeps bringing forth that which is funny.

Credit is due to Chris Vyn for unearthing these gems.

Single.

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

Most sincere apologies to all Single Ladies and Timothy. At the end of the week my Lady Friend is returning home after a long time at Sea . . . Rather, from across the Sea.

To be sure there are actual, non-superficial, things one misses when their partner is away . . . that being said, I am looking forward to catching up on more than a months worth of Mad Men episodes. I know she is too.

Since we are talking about television programming. This is where I always wanted to live. I hear there is a constant inventory of pudding pops.
