Tag: Lost (91-100 of 387)
annual list of the world’s most influential people — 100 artists, heroes, leaders, and thinkers who affect our world. You’ll find Iron Man director Jon Favreau explaining how Elon Musk was the inspiration for Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark in Thinkers, and Bono waxing poetic on Bill Clinton and Robert De Niro riffing on Ben Stiller (StillerStrong.org) in Heroes. But obviously, it’s the Artists category we flipped to first. Among those making the cut: Conan O’Brien, Glee‘s Lea Michele, Lost‘s Carlton Cruse and Damon Lindelof, James Cameron, Sandra Bullock, Simon Cowell, Robert Pattinson, Oprah Winfrey, Taylor Swift, District 9 director Neill Blomkamp, Elton John, Prince, Ricky Gervais, Ashton Kutcher, Penny Arcade’s Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik, fashion designer Marc Jacobs, chef David Chang, conductor Valery Gergiev, blogger Han Han, artist Banksy, and authors Suzanne Collins and Chetan Bhagat. Three of the write-ups that stood out for me: READ FULL STORY »Time has released its
As all of us House fans read yesterday over on Michael Ausiello‘s blog, executive producer Katie Jacobs is acknowledging that a Thirteen-Chase union could be a possibility in the future. Of course, they’re not confirming anything yet, but I can’t help but angrily eat some office chocolate and mourn this possibility while using Adobe to craft a Thirteen dartboard. Because, in my delusional world, Chase is mine. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m lucky enough to have a boyfriend who bears a resemblance to Jesse Spencer (yes, I’m bragging, sorry), which makes me brim with jealousy whenever I see Chase romancing any of his coworkers. I’m even pretty sure that back when Cameron was hooking up with Chase, I actually screamed at my television, “Cameron, back off my man!” before realizing I was talking about fictional people who exist inside a television set that does not respond to my angry comments.
Of course, since the person I’m currently dating looks like Chase, my jealousy does seem a teensy, leeettle big logical, right? But what if I told you I have felt the same jealousy towards people I’ve never met who do not look remotely like anyone I’ve dated? I’m crazy, right? I totally am. Because, as a child, I couldn’t bear to watch the Home Improvement episodes featuring Randy’s girlfriend Michelle, because did she ever defend JTT’s looks in the great sixth grade debate of who’s hotter: JTT or Taylor Hanson? I was the one college girl who didn’t tune into Newlyweds because it would make me feel the sting of knowing my 13-year-old crush, Nick Lachey, had already found true love with someone else who thought 98 Degrees and Rising was a totally catchy album with awesome spoken word verses. (For the time being, at least.) And then there were those kinky, difficult-to-watch cage scenes involving Lost‘s Sawyer, who just didn’t deserve that Kate, because he belonged to this Kate. At least, in my Davidoff Cool Water-scented dreams. (I will, however, let his relationship with Juliet slide. I’ve hit the seventh stage of acceptance when it comes to that hook-up.)
What about you, PopWatchers? Have you ever found yourself too jealous to enjoy an on-screen relationship? (Come on, Office fans. You know that you wanted to throw up in that this-is-so-not-fair kind of way after watching the Jim-Pam kiss on Casino Night.) Please tell me I am not alone here. For my psychological well-being.
P.S. I left out the part about me hoping at the end of Lord of the Rings that Elijah Wood would end up single because I had a crush on him AS A HOBBIT. WHAT’S WRONG WITH ME?
Every week — or at least whenever they have a free moment — Lost executive producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof record a Podcast in which they discuss the past week’s episode, preview the upcoming week’s episode, answer (or evade) fan questions, and address the the general state of Lost. For some fans, the podcast is an important part of their Lost experience. For other fans, such as myself, the podcast is an invitation to crash a computer. Seriously: for some reason, my technology routinely fails me when it comes to listening to the podcast. I am beginning to suspect sinister forces at work in the world, denying me access to the secret knowledge that Damon and Carlton are sharing with the world. It’s true, isn’t it? Tell me!
And while you’re at it, tell me what the news is that the producers share in these exclusive excerpts from their new podcast, which should be available later today at abc.com. (Podcast streaming after the jump.) READ FULL STORY »
After spending weeks speculating over Betty Suarez’s romantic fate (will it be Gio? Henry? Matt? Daniel?), on last night’s Ugly Betty series finale (SPOILER ALERT!), we watched our bespeckled heroine end up with…no one. Kind of. Maybe. I think. Okay, here’s what we know: Daniel and Betty were going to go out for dinner in London. That’s it. No kiss, no lingering stare. (Well, maybe a little one courtesy of the former Mode editor.) If you ask me, the ending was pretty genius: Supporters of the Daniel-Betty union will choose to believe the duo were going on a date, while Daniel-Betty haters will simply believe the pair has an extremely co-dependent friendship.
But there’s another reason I loved the ambiguity: READ FULL STORY »
