Wow, what an incredible Olympic games! There was so much to watch, even though some of it was on during the wee hours of the morning. The teams being represented were all such extraordinary athletes in everything that they did. One in particular that I liked was Apollo Anton Ohno who is a speedskater. I remember watching the first few races that he participated in and he was always finishing in the wrong place. But, finally on the last race, the 500m he won gold. I'll never forget the look on his face as he was rounding the curve of the final lap. He knew that he had it and there was no denying the look of pure joy on his face!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOSH & CHRIS GROBAN!!! (2.27.81 - 2.27.06, 2.27.85 - 2.27.06)

So, my laptop fried earlier this weekend and I'm getting it fixed at a repair shop on Pulaski Rd, right by Daley College.

Mid-f***ing-terms are this week and really all I need is to get through this week and I'll be fine.

I really am regretting the fact that I wasn't able to get tickets for Buble's concert coming up this March. I like seeing him do his goofy dances. Josh really needs to learn how to dance goofy. Well, he kinda does if you count LATG.

I miss my laptop. *sad* Why the hell didn't they let Buble sing at the closing ceremonies! He's Canadian!

LOST-FORUM.COM and LOST-MEDIA.COM are fixed now. Some dumb hacker decided to mess with one of the best, if not THE best Lost fansite/board on the web. Bastards.

**This Week:

--LOST returns with 2x15: Maternity Leave! (last week was a re-run)

Please visit my brand-spanking new Livejournal Burning-Souls for continuing coverage of the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Torino, Italy.

EDIT: 6:36pm

So, even if it's one of the templates from the Blogger site, at least I have a layout! I actually quite like it!

EDIT: 2/13/06 5:50pm

Added 1 fanlisting: Scrubs(television show)

EDIT: 2/19/05 - 3:39pm

Sorry, I'm not doing another post until the Olympics are over. I want to keep that announcement about my LJ up there so that people can be directed to it. Most, if not all of my fanlisting links are working. If they are not, either the site is down, the owner is switching layouts, or the owner is switching servers. It could also be that the fanlisting has been closed and someone else will pick up the subject when they apply for it. I chose to leave the "down" links as they are because I want people to know that it is closed/down/404ed for a reason instead of leaving the graphic there with no link.

Also, LOST-FORUM.COM and LOST-MEDIA.COM have been hacked! Do not visit these sites and if you are a member of the boards, I suggest logging out so as not to endanger your computer from malicious hacking. The mods on the boards have advised to not even visit the forum until they have everything cleared up. More on this when it becomes available.

Omg...I've got some good news on Josh's upcoming album! First, it's slated to come out this summer! Then, back in 2003 when Josh was working on Closer, he collaborated on 2 tracks from that album with a world group called Deep Forest. (The tracks were Remember When It Rained and Never Let Go) Well, courtesy of Pierre Jacquot's website ( Josh is working with them again and they even said that his album will be more "worldly." Cool...let's just hope he doesn't forget how he started.

Courtesy of (

02.06.06 - Eric Mouquet and Pierre Jacquot (sound engineer for Deep Forest) spent a few days at Eric's home studio in January recording music with Josh Groban. Josh's previous album Closer sold over 6 million albums worldwide and included two songs co-composed and arranged by Eric. The new album will be available this summer, and is expected to be more "worldly". During their session Pierre had a chance to compare 7 high-end microphones he was loaned for testing. Josh was very impressed with the recording quality.

Also, there are some "new" old pics on Pierre Jacquot's website that were from the 2003 session. Here's a preview but if you want the rest go here: Josh '03 Closer session pics

Well, something happened today, well actually yesterday that I thought would never happen. I don't know if any of you know that I've been listening to a LOST podcast ever since Season 2 started. That particular podcast was Ryan & Jen's "The Transmission" located here Transmission. Well, today I go on the site to see if they're going to have another theory show because tonight's episode is a re-run. Then, I come across this:

Trans 2006-01-31: "Aloha"
January 30th, 2006

There's so much more we should have said, and yet we know we could never have said enough. "The Transmission" must end, but we hope you've enjoyed the ride at least half as much as we have. We'll never be able to fully thank you for sharing your love of "Lost" with us, and for making our little show something truly remarkable. We look forward to joining you in the fantastic "Lost" fan community, and to tuning in to the "Lost Podcasting Network" for our fix of some true LostCasting talent. Mahalo a nui loa, and aloha.

The first thing that came out of my mouth was "What!" Then all the "why's" started coming. So, I listened to their 8 minute goodbye and basicaly they didn't give us a straight reason as to why they're ending the show. What's weird about it though and what's surprising to me is that this podcast is incredibly popular, they even have a hotline that you can call to tell your theories to them. Hundreds of people listen to this podcast as you can tell because they gushed about it constantly in their previous shows. They decide to end it now when the season isn't even halfway over!!?? It just seems so out of place and weird that they would end the show when LOST hasn't even reached it's peak yet! They were incredibly good at their analysis and discussion. Give them a listen even if you haven't watched an episode of LOST before. They were actually the best out there because they broadcasted FROM Hawaii, where LOST is filmed. They also gave cast sightings in their show which was pretty cool. I just feel kind of "lost" (no pun intended), as to their true answer for cancelling the podcast. I hope they tell us sometime. In the meantime, if you're interested the very last "-cast" by them is the first post on the give them a listen and maybe dig in the archives for a praticular episode that interested you.

-----To Ryan and Jen-------

Thank you for all you have given the LOST fan community. Your in-depth analysis of the show and your witty banter as well was a treat for me to hear every week. It's a shame the show had to be ended and I hope you will find the time (3 kids, my gosh!) to continue the show.
