nice quote from a fantastic director.

more on jughead

repeating my tweeted theory -- the whispers heard prominently in season 1 will turn out to be the Lost-In-Time Losties(Locke, Faraday,etc) observing their past selves. A theory I have heard is that 1950's Ellie is the same as Louise Hawking, the old lady in the church in LA, who is also Faraday's mom. I buy that and would bet money on it.

more Lost ruminations..

so Widmore == the "this is my island" soldier,and they were in the 1950's as I thought. And lo-and-behold, a nuke! Jughead.
Looking at where the nuke is situated, it does not appear close to where the Orchid station is though. What happens to it? Did it get moved ? Did it detonate? Was it buried...where the swan station ends up being? Perhaps its detonation becomes unstuck in time -- perhaps Widmore moved the island at the precise moment it detonated to save the island ? What if the failsafe key in the Swan releases the stasis field and allows the nuke to detonate at some point in time, destroying the island? Wild thoughts...

Lost Season 5 ~ ep 3

So the island did go to the past as I thought. Just not the way I thought with the jumping around. Very clever.
-Those psycho military guys are in the 1950's, are British, and Widmore is one of them.
-Dr. Candle had his arm amputed by the Brits when the Dharma Foundation activated the wheel, forcing them into the past and encountering the Brits.
-Faraday knows everything that will happen, it is all in his notebook.

Predictions :
-the island will go to the far past at the end of Season 5.
-Jack is Jacob

bike racing

I have been slacking off the past few weeks due to allergies, the holidays, and the weather. I definitely am not as in shape as I wanted to be, but am improved from last fall. I still have to drop 8 more pounds at least to get to what I was 2 years ago, and ideally I would like to get down another 15 lbs to 200. Doing 14 hours a week of base miles is a bit nuts in this weather, I have to scale back to shorter roller rides in the mornings and evenings or risk getting bronchitis. My vicious cycles motivator race frame has not been put in the queue yet, so best case I would get the rig at the end of April. So..Spring Series goals -- race at least 2 races to get some exposure, and keep on putting in long weekend rides to build up my endurance, aiming towards the fall series and the 24 hour races to be more competitive.

Lost Season 5

premieres tonight! Predictions -- the island goes to the *past*. Not the future. Long term... the dark matter on the island is a result of an experimental American bomb detonated underground on the island in the 1950' ...maybe.

so season 4.5 started today with "Sometimes a Great Nation", overall a very bleak episode, as I figure the remaining 9 will be. It seems to reveal that everyone on earth was a cylon and they were wiped out, which somewhat gells with my theory of cylon scouts leaving earth and deciding to forget they are machines, although it seems like it was perhaps cylon scientists who were selected for some experimental project of resurection. The question becomes did the cyclons wipe themselves out, or did humans intervene? I think humans have been gone for a long time, the cylon children are doomed to a neverending loop of self-destruction and rebirth.

Låt den rätte komma in

finally saw this movie Monday night -- really creepy little vampire movie based on a Swedish novel. Well acted, subtle special effects for the most part, with the exception of the goofy cat attack -- was I supposed to laugh? And interesting story -- was Eli's "dad" really her dad, or was he an old boyfriend, basically what Oskar will become in 60 years? Of course there is already an english language version that will lose all of the atmosphere and replace it with more gore and fancy quick-edits and quickly be forgotten.
