More Television and Unused Band Names...

I watched the season premiere of Lost tonight and was totally impressed. I love the concurrent past and present storyline thing they do in some episodes. I don't like Jack. NOT because of his character but because he's being played by the big brother from Party of Five! He is that character. Think about it: stressful circumstances (ie: parents dying in a car crash/being lost on a tropical island) and dealing with adversity through the guidance of a tortured leader. Hmm...I may be on to something here.

Kiki, if you know Evangeline Lilly then your cool factor just jumped a few notched to "uber-cool". That's good, it's got an umlaut! But here's a little nugget of trivia if you didn't know. The Jack guy who may hook up with Evangeline on this show, hooked up with that mentally unstable blond waif on Party of Five right? Well, you know Evangeline and mentally unstable blond Waif girl (how's that for a superhero name?) went to your high school! It's okay...lift your jaw. I blow minds for a living.

If you're getting an understanding of headings then you'll realize I also watched the season premiere of Invasion tonight. It was su-weet. It's exactly the relevant show that Western culture needs right now. The motif of danger posed by the outsider from within (a la Invasion
of the Body Snatchers, clearly the influence on this show) is very resonant in America's psyche since September 11th 2001. But! Deliver it wrapped in a devastating hurricane in the Southern United States and you, sir, have your relevance.

PS The fat guy from Breaker High is awesome!

All great artists go through phases: Picasso had his blue period and I, the great band name creator, have my Prepositional Phase. Not prepositional phrase, that's something else entirely.
