24 Hour Party People Part II

6:23 PM - Well, it took me 47 hours and 36 minutes, but I finished season one of 24. I was riveted! Bring on season 2. Just a few observations:

-Boy, everyone's relatively fresh-faced for being up for 24+ hours. Last summer my buddies and I were up for over 30 hours straight for my best friend's bachelor party in Vegas and we all were super sluggish and barely coherent towards the end. Of course, entering a nudie bar at night and leaving in broad daylight will do that to you.
-Dennis Hopper's accent was laughable.
-Although very cute, Kim is an idiot. If she were a real person I'd say thank God for that ass, because she's not going to get through life with her brains. And, really, how many times in one day can someone be kidnapped/held against her will?
-Sen. Palmer's wife is a Class A-1 Royal Queen of the Harpies.
-Every time I heard the name Chappelle (the top CTU guy - I think), all I could think of was "I'm rich, beyotch!"
-Nina: I didn't see that coming at all. When I start season 2, I'm not going to trust anyone.
-Why is Kiefer Sutherland's introduction to season one on disc 6?
-And what kind of name is "Kiefer"?

Okay, I'm in dire need of a shower.

Ahh, Nina. You'll enjoy the second season :)

spydrz said...

By the way, "Kiefer" is the German word for jaw. At least he isn't named "Oberschenkel."

Captain Backfire said...

It should also be noted that in the world of "24", no one ever needs to use the bathroom. EVER.

...(sigh)...did I really just use my first post on Micah's blog to analyze the restroom habits of make-believe people?

Micah said...

This could only be one person - how's my favorite ragin' cajun/jersey metrosexual?

Captain Backfire said...

Goin' well. Gearing up for Mardi Gras. One can only hope Alva comes down and throws some beads my way....

How's life treating you? Besides the marathon TV, that is? (Season 2 is just as good--BTW).

I am, however, saddened by the lack of a Golden Globe-related post. This is no way to start off awards season, dude. For shame.....

Micah said...

Not bad. Just bar studyin'. It snowed today, which is nice. And gonna pick up season 2 from my friend tomorrow.

Enjoy Mardi Gras. Shame there's not a Phat Saturday this year. Have you and Alva hooked up yet?

As for the Golden Globes...I just don't care. Never did. Not to be xenophobic, but it's the foreign press. C'mon! I'm hoping to have another Oscar pool this year. If Yahoo doesn't offer it (like they didn't last year), I'll just do it on my own.

Geez, now that I know a bunch of my friends read this blog, I can't write any dirt about y'all.

KPMD said...

I was pretty sure Kiefer was German for "hot, slightly mysterious, guy with creepy dad", but I could be wrong...
Besides, I'm all about Alias. Michael Vaughn, sooo hot, want to touch the hiney.

Thinking about changing my screen name to "Desperate Housewife" - Kandace

KPMD said...

Hey "Enhanced"

Just wanted to let you know, I've recently gotten a subscription to EW. I'm studying up and looking for a rematch, bee-otch.

Micah said...

Then what does "Topher" mean?

Enhanced - believe her. When I went to visit last week, she had the eye of the tiger.

spydrz said...

It's short for Christopher.

Micah said...

Makes sense. I usually go by Cah.

spydrz said...

That makes it easier to remember, Cah.

Captain Backfire said...

C'mon, Dr. Mrs. Kandace: I've got my finger on the pulse of Hollywood romance, you've got yours on on the wrist of a coked-up gangbanger who just coded from multiple GSWs. Whose more likely to know who Sam Waterston is banging: you or me????

Micah said...

Well, it was Jerry Orbach.



(too soon?)

spydrz said...

I've been missing out on Hollywood since my free EW subscription ran out...but it'd probably cut into my daytime tv viewing.

Captain Backfire said...

And anyone who saw last week's "L&O" realized it wasn't Elizabeth Rohm. I mean, she was GAY?!?!? Whaaaaa?????

(P.S. Never too soon for a dead Lennie Briscoe joke. He would have wanted it that way.)

KPMD said...

Oh, but who does she date in real life??? BTW, I would probably still bang Sam Waterston even if I were gay - he is the shiznit.

Micah said...

Yeah, that whole lesbian thing caught me off guard. The main story itself pretty much sucked. It was the first one that I've seen with Dennis Farina.

Phones, letters, e-mail, chat rooms? Bah! Those all are so Sept. 10th. In the future, all human contact will be through comments in blogs.

spydrz said...

I'm with Micah. Nothing like indirect contact.

Captain Backfire said...

"...Rohm currently lives with MSNBC legal analyst Dan Abrams...."

(Must credit imdb for that one. Maybe I'm losing it.)

Dude, Sept. 10th references are so December 6, 1941. The new 9/10 is 10/27 (the day before the world changed and the Red Sox won the Series). Keep up.

spydrz said...

IMDB is a perfectly viable place for information...

Micah said...

And you probably also read US Weekly. Ha ha ha!

No more Sept. 10th references. They're hella-lame.

spydrz said...

So are you watching Season Two during this marathon blogging session? I think there are more comments on this post now than even on my "Best Movie Lines Ever" post on my blog.

Captain Backfire said...

Spydrz--of course this post is longer. Your blog scares people like me that don't have post-graduate degrees. I'll stick to my comfort zones of pop culture and...well, pop culture. spydrzweb is a scary, scary place for us simpletons. Or is it "we simpletons"?

spydrz said...

But the last post on there was about football!

Micah said...

Nah - I'm returning season one to my friend tomorrow (provided that our snowy streets are clear). I'll pick up season two then. This one'll take a bit longer since I have my review class this week.

KPMD said...

Joe - Betcha didn't know Dan Abrams is a testicular cancer survivor. Just a little something to grow on.

Micah - I feel like a part of history (longest blog ever). Yet, I feel kinda like a big loser all at the same time.

Micah said...

Some of us with post-graduate degrees are pretty scare of that place, too. And I'm a contributor!

spydrz said...

Kim Bauer is significantly improved in Season Two. Although I can't speak of a reduction in abductions.

Captain Backfire said...

KPMD--Dan has also "been linked" to Kimberly Guilfoyle Newsome, CNN legal analyst and soon-to-be ex-wife of SF mayor Gavin Newsome. So maybe there's something to be said for losing a nut.

spydrz said...

Joe, I guess we shouldn't use the term "nutjob" around him then?

Micah said...

KPMD - get used to feeling like a user because when we all share that communal house in the DC Metro area, this will be how we talk to each other.

spydrz said...

Whatever happened to FunfaxVA? He dropped off the blog real quick.

Micah said...

A "user" is an indunstry term for "loser," BTW.

More Kim ain't bad - she's easy on the eyes. Lord knows that some of us bought "Girl Next Door" - *cough*16:9*cough*. Her character is just an idiot.

Captain Backfire said...

Doug, I feel a particular sympathy for all the testicularly-challeged out there: the aforementioned Dan Abrams, John Kruk, Tom Green. I could go on and on. That is truly a humorless subject....mostly.

Micah said...

And "indunstry" is longhand for "industry."

Yeah, where is our favorite lil' 'brew that made out with two women?

spydrz said...

But a very attractive idiot. Some things can be overlooked. Kudos, 16:9, for doing what I can't bring myself to do...approaching the checkout with that DVD in hand.

spydrz said...

Joe, I understand that there are certain...sympathies to be had...I was referring more to his job at PMSNBC...

Captain Backfire said...

I will go on record as saying that Elisha Cuthbert is actually quite good in that movie. And--much like 90% of my DVD purchases--it came in a brown box via US Mail. So the only shame came from clicking on "place order".

Hey, I also purchased Clinton's "My Life"
(I think it was Micah that suggested I buy it) so I clearly have no qualms when it comes to questionable purchases.

spydrz said...

So did Clinton explain the blue dress?

Micah said...

No, I specifically recommended "My Pet Goat."

spydrz said...

Not sure I'm familiar with that.

Captain Backfire said...

Micah, that book was great. I can see why GWB stayed in the classroom to finish that book. I was riveted from start to....well, to page 18 when it was over.

Spydrz, I said "bought," not "read". Note the nuance. It's mostly for the bookcase. And witty banter at all the cocktail parties I don't host.

spydrz said...

Ah, my "bad." I didn't notice that. Cocktail parties are fun. I'm having one by myself right now.

Micah said...

Actually, cocktail parties are quite fun. Had a Christmas one. Bought too much booze, though. Why did I buy that bottle of butterscotch schnapps? Oh well - I'm being creative. It's not bad when mixed with hot chocolate (a concoction that I'm drinking right now).

16:9 - you got that phat pad. Invite those Eastern European ladies of the night over.

Captain Backfire said...

As am I. I must say, the 2002 Rosemount Estate CabSav is a fine choice for counting down to comment #50 on what can only be described as longest.post.ever.

Not having to share it is even better.

KPMD said...

Alright boys, you're scaring off the "normals". I'm off to do a little studying and then to bed. As they say, "Parting is such sweet sorrow", unless it's from you bitches.

spydrz said...

The normals? Where is K.T.G.?
As for cocktails, I have just completed a magnum of Heineken that I received as a gift. 1.5L of Dutch bliss.

Micah said...

'Night, babe. You have a big day full of bourbon and pills ahead of you.

spydrz said...

What was the quote from "Family Guy?" "I guess that means you'll smell like bourbon and vicodin." Well, to all the former Virginians out there, I'd like to point out that there's less than an hour until the official start of Lee-Jackson-King Day.

i am chris said...

ok
liked the text on the BW photo

Micah said...

Thanks, Chris. Glad you stopped by.

Captain Backfire said...

Sniff, sniff.

I miss VA. The only state with the cojones to honor Lee/Jackson on the same day as MLK. Why bother taking the Arizona route and just not recognizing the holiday? Go all out while you're at it.

Okay, boys, it's been real. Until we meet again in cyber-world....

spydrz said...

Have a good night, 16:9. As the historian of our group, I should point out the reason for the triple holiday. Lee-Jackson Day existed before MLKJR day. It was meant as a celebration of their birthdays, the 21at and 22nd, respectively. When the Feds mandated MLKJR day, it just happened to fall on the same date.

Micah said...

Yeah, I'm gonna be hittin' the ol' dusty trail, myself.

This has been fun, guys. Loserific, but fun.

spydrz said...

Well, happy dreams of an intelligent Kim Bauer to all.

Mindy said...

Sorry for getting to the blog party late guys I was talking to a friend for like an hour and 50 messages appeared...but here are some comments as I scroll through the 50 messages...

I am so with KPMD on Michael Vartan he is such a hot guy....And I love Alias but it's hard to watch now that Jennifer broke poor little Michael's heart in real life...

Micah how dare you slander the name of Lenny Briscoe...have you no shame?

Hey Enhanced maybe you should consider having a book burning party and start the blaze with Clinton...

And I will reserve any comments about MLK day to myself so that Micah doesn't receive any hate email about his blog....

spydrz said...

I'm with Mindy on the book-fire. Not in like, and evil Third Reich kind of way, but in an anti-Clinton kind of way.

Mindy said...

Well I guess I"m in like both ways since I absolutely HATE billy bob clinton and I"m of German descent so that whole third reich stuff kicks in from time to time

spydrz said...

Of course, the Clinton book wouldn't have to be burned if it resided in the correct section of the bookstore...namely, "fiction."
I have to resist the German urge also. Not only do I have that background, I am fluent in their language.

Mindy said...

I don't care what section it's in clinton should be set on fire :)

spydrz said...

That sounds ok to me.

Mindy said...

I think I'm going to hit the hay for the night...Happy MLK day kids....or Lee/Jackson day....I think I'll celebrate the later and not the former :)

spydrz said...

Well I guess I'm the last one here. Hello? Echo...echo...echo.
In summation, 24 rocks!

downtownlad said...

I have the new season taped. I think you're inspriring me to go watch it now!!!

Mindy said...

Okay so I know I said I was going to bed like an hour ago but in my channel surfing I stumbled upon the history channel and "Beyond the DaVinci Code" so of course I had to stay up and watch it...I'm always up for a good pope bashing session...Sorry spydrz I'm the last one standing tonight!

spydrz said...

Nope!! Ronin's on TNT :) Even though I have the DVD, there's something about seeing it on tv...love that scene in the city center of Paris with that all-aluminum S8 Audi chase...

Kate The Great said...

Oh Spydrz... so touched you asked about me :) I am just returning to the blogosphere after a weekend off (check my post.) Playing hookey today (am I a badgirl?) and enjoying every minute of it. I suppose I'm practicing for the coming world of unemployment :)

spydrz said...

But of course!
