    American Idol Season 8

    But I didn't really want to keep making random posts in CWDWAT and I doubt I'm the only one watching. If I am, fuck it. Consider this thread mah blog. Final Six (Six spots to go) Week One: Danny Gokey Very solid, a potential top five that's helped by the fact that 1) He's a Pastor so he has the Southern/Religious vote going for him and 2) He's got the sob-story background due to his wife passing away 4 weeks before he went to the Idol auditions. Michael Sarver A somewhat surprising pick for the Top 12, IMO. Is solid but unspectacular. I fully expect him to get voted out within the first few weeks. Alexis Grace Very good singer, sultry voice, cute as a button. Not the strongest female but good enough to last until the Top 8, maybe higher. Week Two: Adam Lambert I'd almost guarantee this guy makes the top five without a hitch and is a heavy favorite to win. Good look, theater background so he can work a stage well and has a voice that unlike other Idol winners in the past, could actually sell an album. Excellent range too. Alison Iraheta Youngest in the competition at 16 but has a great, theatrical voice. Might struggle a bit with slower/classical songs because she's more suited to a rock style but she killed the Heart song she did last week. Not gonna make top five but should put in a good showing. Kris Allen Worst pick to make the Top 12 so far. Totally bland and forgettable. Fuck this guy. Out of last nights show I think the 2 that are shoe-ins are Lil Rounds and Scott MacIntyre. Third spot is a toss-up to me. Fourth week is Wild Card group which are twelve singers that the judges are giving a second chance to.

    X-Men Origins: Wolverine

    Okay so the trailer was released recently at Comic-Con and can be seen in shitty quality on YouTube but I don't care. Watching that had me jumping up and down like a kid. Final cast looks awesome and I love the diversity of mutants in this. I have no doubts in my mind that this will likely end up being better then X3 and maybe X2 and the first one. Watching the trailer you can hear the audience freak out when they see Gambit and I had a very similar reaction. Cast Hugh Jackman as Wolverine Liev Schreiber as Sabretooth Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool Will.i.am as Kestrel Danny Houston as William Stryker Lynn Collins as Silver Fox Tyler Kitsch as Gambit Kevin Durand as The Blob Dominic Monaghan as Barnell Daniel Henney as Maverick Scott Adkins as Weapon XI Rumors are going around that we'll see mutants like Professor X and Cyclops make cameos. I can only hope that soon enough we'll be getting the Nightcrawler spinoff they've been talking about since X2.

    I'm gonna need some clarification on this one. Did he phone the dude? Visit his house? Find him in the street?

    Upon rewatch of the episode it looks like when Richard is carrying Ben to The Temple he walks by the mass grave that Locke fell into when he was shot.
  9. Lord of The Curry


    - So I'm thinking in terms of The Others power structure they have leaders but Richard is more like their "prophet", acting on Jacob's behalf by choosing the leader but not having any actual power over the underlings and such. He doesn't answer to them but it seems like they don't answer to him either. - Gotta love how Sayid and Jack think that they're going to change the future but the island course-corrects it by having Kate and Sawyer take Ben to Richard. - It seems that once somebody is in The Temple they are changed, devoted to the island. Example of this is when Robert is arguing with Danielle he's attempting to justify the black cloud. He also attempts to kill her because he serves the island now and she is a threat. - In season one, was the black cloud trying to pull Locke into the ground to take him to the temple and make him one of The Others?
  10. I messaged Mik about doing this a while back and I supposed in a battle of the "Who is Lazier" contest Mik is the winner. This is going to stay pinned at the top of the folder and when it comes time to making an official thread for whatever show the contents will be transferred into it. The whole idea behind this is that we get lots of random posts in CWDWAT and others that kinda get lost in the shuffle so this will keep the discussion surrounding certain fights/shows contained until the events are given the green light. If it's at all possible try and mention which fights are rumored and which fights are close to being signed or are official. If you're adding a fight to an event just do a copy/paste job and put the fight being added in bold so it catches whomever is reading the threads eye.

    The Upcoming Shows/Rumored Fights Thread

    Probably not until 2010, if that. Silva's got Leites and then the winner of Henderson/Bisping before the year is up. Don't really know who GSP's next challenger would be after Alves.

    If they do and it ends up in people turning on him (which it should) I'll laugh my balls off.

    He ran a train on Ryo Chonan in PRIDE, maybe that was it?

    UFN 18 - Condit vs. Kampmann

    Yeah, it's been coming up on 9 months from his last fight and with UFC making some solid MW signings lately he can't afford to get lost in the mix.

    Comments that which don't warrant a thread

    Getting rid of this thread is a horrible idea. I, for one don't want to see random threads with only 3 posts clogging up the forum. Which is exactly what will happen if this folder is killed.

    MMA Comments that Don't Warrant a Thread

    "People want to see real fighters not guys acting like...uh.....retards, you know?"- The sensitive, tolerant and compassionate Josh Barnett on Inside MMA last night. I think I might finally be in the Lei Tong camp about Josh. It was bad enough hearing him spout tripe about him having recently competed (and won, he'll have you know) a pro wrestling bout in Japan but having to listen to comments like "double wrist lock" and "front headlock" while trying to describe submissions was horrid.
