Hello all

Quick update before I go off to work for a bit. I plan to write up this week’s reviews (not that many) when I get home later on this evening. The LOST Season Finale was last night, and I have to say, I was extremely impressed. The reactions/analyses I have read thus far all seem to be a mixed bag, but I think the consensus is that this might be the perfect setup into the final season. And I would just like to point out (DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU PLAN TO EVER WATCH LOST AND/OR MISSED LAST NIGHT’S EPISODE) the introduction of Jacob at the very beginning of the two-part finale was brilliant. It allowed them to properly introduce and integrate him into the show, I thought it was extremely effective.

I stayed up fairly late watching the majority of The Big Lebowski (and woke up early this morning to finish it) to prepare for this morning’s The New Cult Canon, which I have not read yet, will read after I finish this update. I just absolutely adore that film, and cannot stand those who do not like it. The reason for this is that of the fact that people who typically dislike this film dislike it for its popularity and/or “cult” status, which is just a terrible reason NOT to like a film, especially one as brilliant as this. There’s a lot more I would like to say about it but I will leave that for my reviews.

Sad to see the Caps lose last night (although I did not watch it thanks to LOST) but I am really glad that 1) the Braves played early yesterday so I was able to watch it and 2) they won back-to-back series with divisional teams. We are shaping up to look pretty decent, just have to work on our bullpen (as always).

That seems to be it for now, I will write again later tonight. Thank you for reading.
