Happy Halloween!

I'm not dressing up for Halloween.

Yep, that's right. I've never been into dressing up, so I'm not gonna bother today.

If I were forced to do so, however, I'd just wear a dark tank top, cargo pants, and hiking boots or shoes. Then I'd get a toy rifle from the dollar store and let my super-long hair down. I'd also have a black cross-body bag.

I'd be LOST's Danielle Rousseau when the castaways first meet her in 2004. Wehehehehehe...

In This Week's Ask Ausiello...

Have you read this week's Ask Ausiello over at If you haven't, then click here and read the whole thing now! If you don't mind some spoilers, that is.

Pay special attention to this part:

Question: I have a really fun assignment for you, Aus. Create a chart listing every Lost alum there ever was, and then next to their names, tell us where things stand in terms of them returning for the final season. I just know how much you love to make lists. —Steven
I have a better idea: Let’s scrap the chart and forget we ever had this conversation. In return, I’ll share this Lost nugget with you: I hear Team Darlton will give us the answer to one of Lost’s oldest and most confounding mysteries. And I’m pretty sure it’s an answer none of us expected to get.

Which mystery?! Which one?!

Is it Adam and Eve? Doubt it. Is it the Whispers? Hmmm... Libby? Her place in the mythology is still unclear. We've got no clear background whatsoever. The Numbers? The Smoke Monster? Is it the Ruins (see "The Brig")? Is it the Black Rock? Richard Alpert? The more information about Ricardus, the better! Is it the Hurley Bird? A large bird seemed to call out Hurley's name in both "Exodus, Part 2" and "Live Together, Die Alone" - a.k.a. the Seasons 1 and 2 finale. Is it the Temple? Is it Richard Malkin, as in Claire's psychic? Is it the mysterious painting in Ben's house that looks a lot like Juliet? Is it the cause of the fertility problems

Which one?

Who Wouldn't Want to Return to LOST?

What is this rumour I'm hearing that a former LOST castmember has declined to return to the show for its final season?

That's nuts. Besides scheduling conflicts, there's no good reason to decline an offer to appear on LOST's sixth and final season. Right?

According to E! Online's Kristin Dos Santos, this former Lostie is an original cast member, which rules out Mira Furlan (who portrayed Danielle Rousseau up to episode 4x08, "Meet Kevin Johnson" and who turned down a request to return, per's Michael Ausiello). We can also rule out Harold Perrineau, Jr., who claimed that no one has contacted him about anything related to LOST Season 6 and that he will return if asked to do so, and Ian Somerhalder, who revealed to Entertainment Weekly's Mandi Bierly that he was en route to Oahu when they spoke about The Vampire Diaries last month. Emilie de Ravin is confirmed to return in Season 6 after her Season 5 hiatus.

So, who is it?
This is all based on the assumption that "original castmember" pertains to one who had a speaking part, at least, on the pilot episode. I don't know if Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Mr. Eko), Michelle Rodriguez (Ana-Lucia), or Cynthia Watros (Libby) have been approached to return in Season 6, although Adewale has expressed his desire to reprise his role and I believe Cynthia is available after plans for the Gossip Girl spin-off fell through. 

So, who is it?

There's a Reason I Don't Like Baseball...

... And that is baseball's interruption of Fringe.


For at least two weeks, there will be no new Fringe episode due to post-season baseball. According to FringeTelevision's calendar, Fox will re-air the Season 2 premiere, "A New Day In The Old Town," on October 22nd IF there's no ALCS Game 5. The next week, October 29th, there will be no episode at all due to World Series Game 2. The following week, November 5th, episode 2x06 ("Earthling") may be aired IF there's no World Series Game 7. If so, episode 2x06 will be aired on November 12th. That's four weeks after the last new episode. FOUR WEEKS!

My Geek Thursday (FlashForward at 8pm and Fringe at 9pm) will be incomplete for at least one week. Three, if I discount the rerun of the Season 2 premiere and if there's World Series Game 7.

It would have been better if Fringe Season 2 episodes were available on Canadian iTunes Store...

God could possibly have arranged this so I can focus on Assignment 4 (the last one!). Possible, right?

*Sigh* Oh well...

Glee Jam Sessions

This is one of my favourite moments in Glee episode 1x07 ("Throwdown"). It's a shame the audio isn't available on iTunes. Also a shame that the following clip is the most decent one I could find: video quality isn't so good, but the audio is fine.

Thanks to YouTube user snottlebie7 for the clip!

Has Finn (played by Canadian hottie Cory Monteith) ever played the drums on the show? I can't remember. Has Puck (played by Mark Salling) ever played the guitar? I can't remember either.

Oh, well. I might have to get the episode from iTunes to be able to watch this episode - a strong one, thanks to Jane Lynch's awesomeness - and the jam session anytime I want.

TLC Effectively Axes Jon & Kate Plus 8 reports that TLC is putting Jon & Kate Plus 8 to rest.

Thank God.

It's about time too. After Jon and Kate Gosselin announced their split - heck, probably even before then - the show ceased to be about two parents raising two sets of multiples. It became the nasty divorce being played out on North American television. 

Let's just hope the children grow up to be more sensible than their parents.

For those who still care, according to People and The New York Post, the network will air all remaining episodes before filming ends next month.

I Still Want a BlackBerry Storm...

You Are a Blackberry

You are one of those super hard working, cellphone to your hip types.

You like gadgets that do what they're supposed to do, especially when they keep you super connected to the world.

You prefer function over flash, so things like a long battery life and easy features appeal to you.

You may not look as cool as all of the iPhone kids, but you're probably being more productive than all of them!

If you answered mostly As, you want a BlackBerry to tap into its leading-edge enterprise functions and cross-carrier flexibility.

If you answered mostly Bs, pick up a sleek and sexy iPhone for a stylish, customizable mobile experience.

When will the BlackBerry Storm be available for Rogers Wireless subscribers? When???

Thank God for Work Share Days

I am so glad I'm off today, thanks to the EI Work Share Program.

I caught Kelly Clarkson on The View! Woot woot!

Check out this YouTube video (yes, it's already up):

Thanks to YouTube user TooWeirdToFunction for the clip.

Wasn't she awesome? I love it when she said that she failed her own iPhone Open Mic app. I was seriously laughing my butt off. 

Here's a clip of her "Already Gone" performance:

Thanks again to YouTube user TooWeirdToFunction for the clip.

Now, I'm singing her song. I wouldn't be surprised if it gets stuck in my head (it'll join the songs from last night's Glee).

I love Work Share Days. I'd love 'em even more if I could see the EI payments on my bank statement. (Come on, it's taking forever!)
