Soundtrack Saturday

Folks, we're back up and running. Shouldn't be encountering any server problems from a while... thanks again to Harry for helping me set up my server, Krissi for sending me some of these tracks, and Mary for being.. well, all around amazing. Alrighty, here are my quick thoughts:

HIMYM: Pretty funny episode, I've definitely seen my share of "crazy eyes" in the past... never heard of girls being wary of the "jerk nails" though. But just in case, I've stopped cutting my nails and will continually run them through mud.

Heroes: Still need to catch up.

House: Still on the DVR.

Friday Night Lights: Dying to catch up... I've heard really good things.

Veronica Mars: Confession time. I've given up on the show... sort of. I have no motivation to start an episode anymore, so I'm two behind. Convince me otherwise!

Lost: "The Cost of Living" episode was eh... there are a few rumors as to why he was killed off... but the way they killed him off served no stinkin' purpose, lame. However, the "I Do" episode was pretty delicious... but they really need to stop ending every scene with a character staring intently into the camera. At least replace the suspenseful music with "Camptown Races"... and of course, we don't get a new episode until Feb. 7th.

The OC: I told you guys it gets better! How awesome is Taylor Townsend?? Her foreign language skills crack me up... one of my favorite moments is when she's still on the phone with Miguel. Just wait til next week's episode, "The Metamorphosis"... aka "The One That Saves The Show".

The Office: I thought last week's "Diwali" episode was eh... but this week's was wonderful... loved the "My Humps" ringtone... and Rashida Jones is gorgeous, I hope her and Jim get together. Anyone remember her short stint on Freaks and Geeks? God, I love that show.

Grey's Anatomy: Two solid episodes, I laughed, I cried, my balls disappeared... doesn't help that I wear fuzzy slippers while watching. Also, I really hate Meredith more and more every week. She's the Marissa of this show... everything she says makes me cringe. Wouldn't mind seeing her killed off in a Volchok-style car accident. Sure her name's in the show title, but whatever, we'd all still watch.

South Park: Hands down, the funniest show on television right now.

Okay, I'm gonna try fixing some old links now... see how much I love you all? So leave some comments!

Hurrah, first post!

Thank you thank you thank you for the songs! I've been dying to get some new music into my ears...

Cap't, my Cap't,

You rock my socks off! Great post, and great tunes!

As for VM, I thought it started coming back a bit around the fourth eppy, which was a bit wittier and crisper than the first three eppies.

Wow! Meredith really bugs you (understatement), eh?

Love Heroes and Lost, but like you, I was bummed they killed Mr. Eko. I emailed you what the producers had to say about the death.

Thanks for all the tunes!! You made my Saturday much happier!

I am too so over the whole Meredith and Derrick story. I think myabe she needs a new story. Other than Meredith fatique, I agree, solid episode.

I have not been following "Heroes" but the whole "Save The Cheerleader, Save The World" promo has me intrigued....any comments?

"The Metamorphosis"... aka "The One That Saves The Show" - I hope so... can't wait... OC is the best! ;)

Dude, Ronnie is having a bad patch like the OC did for a whole 2 seasons only this time it's temporary. Go to the CW site and look at this week's preview:

Thank you, thank you, thank you! The music is back and I can go on living. Haha.
I think this past ep of Grey's (Where the Boys Are) was my fav so far this season. And yeah Meredith has been irking me for a while- I say more Christina! more George! more Addison! etc...

Thanks so much for the songs. And I was going to give up on The OC this year but I decided to give it a shot after hearing you rave about it and I'm glad I did. I've never loved Julie and, of course, Taylor.

Is there anyway you could reupload the songs from the first episode of The OC or at least the Placebo song? I didn't get a chance to grab it and its awesome.

Just an idea...

I just realized that all the Grey's episodes are named after songs (I know I'm slow on the uptake!) You should/could post links to the song it's named after. I'm going back to season 1 and some of the songs I've never heard before...

5:57 PM

The UnIDed HIMYM song is "Forever" by The Explorers Club, you can hear a demo at . They had a link for the song at their worldpress site, but it's old ezarchive :-(

I've just started to get into The Office. I'm sad, yes, deprived and all that. I'm enjoying it so far. As far as GA goes, I don't hate Meredith, but I find her overly slutty. It's kinda ew. I actually don't like Addison, and I don't know why. I look at her and want her to go away.

The next episode seems to promise some action for Alex and Izzy and I'm thrilled because I enjoy them as a couple.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Thanks for the music!! As for VM, the eps have been getting better each week. I think you should wait and stick it out until the first arc is finished to see if you still enjoy the show.

10:53 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

I agree with the previous comment that says stick it out with VM until the first arc is finished. I'm finding this season difficult to watch - the rape storyline isn't entertainment, it's just uncomfortable.

However, I figure that by the second arc, the cast will have gelled again, and I will heart VM again. I'm willing to give it a chance because I loved season 1 & 2 so much.

Hey man, you really need to watch VM. I didn´t like the first couple of eps either but they really do seem to get better and better. "Hi infidelity"´s already considered as one of the best episodes of the whole show so please don´t give up on it.

I mean, we have survived OC´s season 3 so I am sure as hell you will not be disappointed by at least trying to watch VM´s third season.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Capn Oatz - I have a very radical point of view to share but I want your opinion. After seeing the last 3 OCs (and hearing your review of episode 4) and watching the last few Greys... i think OC is better then Greys right now. It's funnier, more original, different, and more entertaining. Greys is the same ole over and over again, and the characters have gotten really annoying. And the central romance is not romantic. I know OC will be lucky to survive the season but I think its a better show then Greys. Crazy I know.

Hey Sonny - loved your ellipses costume. jk. I think going as Jim is brilliant and anyone who didn't get it is dying a slow death - living without a sense of humor. I've set up a writer/filmmaker meet up at the Getty on Nov. 19 at noon for lunch and shop talk. Hope you can make it - guests welcome.

I cannot believe you're giving up on VM! It's getting so, so good. Even though I'm crazy about the show, I can admit that it was a little off for the first few episodes of this season, but Hi, Infidelity is a return to classic S1 VM...looks like things are only going to get better from here. Please don't give up on it!

hey anonymous, thanks for being the first to comment! you're welcome, you're welcome, you're welcome for the songs.

hi anon, YOU are awesome. The shakes are not.

hey krissi, glad you liked the post and the tunes, thanks again for helping me track down so many of them! i'll get to VM on the dvr eventually... and yes i loathe meredith... and may ecko r.i.p. =(

hello anon, YOU are a wonderful person for reading this blog. tell more people to be wonderful!

howdy anonymous, i love being a hero. so keep checking back!

hi janet, heart attacks suck, or so i hear... i will try to keep you healthy with more mp3s.

hello anon, thank you for saying you loved the commentary. i tend to think no one reads and it's just straight to the blue links... so thank you.

hey anon, you're welcome!

hi slade, thanks for passing the site on to your crew. i wish i had a crew. and god bless you for pointing me to the new Stuff mag...

hey raynp, glad you agree.. i seriously could care less about what happens with meredith and derrick... and if i hear someone say mc-something one more time, i swear to god i'm going to mckillmyself. re: Heroes, i really need to catch up... but there's an episode a few weeks back that really propels the cheerleader story into the front... i highly recommend this show.

hey abyss... you're welcome... tune in this thursday!

hey L, thanks for the link.. i gotta catch up before i watch... but i guess i'm gonna keep sticking it out. (that's what HE said! hey-oh!)

hi francis, you're welcome so much! you can thank josh schwartz for sending me the tracks... an awesome showrunner he is.

hey megan, you're welcome! christina's actually been irking me too... but I definitely agree with more Addison, and more George...

hi anon, you're welcome!

hey lauren, glad you gave the oc another shot! i reuploaded the songs from the first eppy... enjoy!

hi anon, you're welcome... and i will hold you to that. i'm gonna watch the past two eps tomorrow i think...

hey jessica, you're welcome!

hi catherine, you're welcome! i actually am glad you misplaced the comment as it ups my comment count. i have no shame.

hey anonymous, you want me to do more work? =) that is a good idea though...

hi jo, thanks again for IDing the song.. love it. and god damn ezarchive!

hey scott, wait til the 2nd season finale of the office... you'll love it. and yeah, meredith is a total slut and a half. but addison? c'mon, she's gorgeous and hilarious and perfectly flawed.. hope on the addison train buddy.

hi anon, you're welcome! i hope you're right about vm!

hey anonymous, i hope you're right too about vm! i think a minor part of why i loved season one so much is cause i watched it as a dvd marathon... i think vm is the type of show that may work better as such... just a thought.

hey anon, i'll make sure to check out "hi infidelity".. and you're right, if i can suck it up through season three, i can def do the same for vm.. and probably even 'the class'. just kidding. no one can sit through the class... what a god awful show.

hi anonymous, that is a very radical point of view. and i like it. but i can't agree with it. the oc's gotten better... but it is no grey's... i have a soft spot for the oc... but from a purely objective stand point, i gotta give grey's credit for being so consistent every week... but i'm glad you're throwing down some major oc-love!

hey scribe, i love the getty. i love lunch. i love shop talk. so nov 19? done! thanks for the invite!

hi moley, welcome.

hey anonymous, i'm only SORT OF giving up on VM.. i'm just behind two eps.. i'll for sure watch them this week... will let you know what i think.

WOOO!!! and the capt'n is bAAACK!!! thank you harry, krissy, mary and of course yourself!!
lovin the tunes! am slowly but surely catchin up with the o.c. but between downloading grey's and's taking quite a while...
haha, love the comparison between marissa and meredith and must say: you're RIGHT!! i mean, both their names start with an 'M', right? but jokes aside, she is so frickin annoyin and i hope she gets killed off although i'm doubting that that will happen cos - as you said - the whole show is basically based around her... oh, and the whole title thing.
also, the total suckage of HER has made me appreciate EVERY other character a LOT more. so i guess that that's one advantage of her character.. weak but i'm gonna go with it...

Thanks so much for all the music, as always. I feel like I should watch The OC - they always seem to be playing some intriguing stuff.

Don't give up on VMars! I thought the last ep was great, and this week's looks like it'll be awesome, too.

6:58 AM  
Blogger nicknackpattywack said...

You're 100% right about the o.c. so far, all the episodes have been good.

I still think VM is good. But that show has always been a light, guilty pleasure show for me, so I may not be as invested in it, therefore, not bothered by some of the things that die hard fans notice. so far i think the show still has clever, witty dialog, which is why i watch, that and kristen bell.

I'm done with Lost. In my opinion they have strayed too far from telling a story. now it's all about what kind of gimmick we can use to get people to watch. i'm done with being let down. i don't think i'll pick the show back up unless they somehow due come up with a logical explanation for it, then i'll go back and watch. i doubt this will happen.

Meredith is a bit irritating. The dead-pan, I'm hungover acting style is starting to bother me. So is George. I think he's overdoing with the quirky, anxious act, it's starting to feel forced.

Can't wait for Scrubs.

from one anon to another - i agree. greys just is what it is - albeit smart, and emotional and well executed, but its kind of just a medical soap. not special or inspired. and this year its gotten flat and all the stuff i used to love about it has been sacrificed to a revolving door of relationships where you just pair up new people and bounce that off each other. its also become smug and self-congratulatory and none of the relationships are sexy or fun anymore. its gotten very middle of the road and soft.
the OC however has become something exciting again. the show has always been either awesome or excruciating, sometimes simultaneously. its never had the smooth polish of greys, the consistency, the safeness. but thats why at its height it was more exciting and more fun. thats also why the lows are lower. you get the sense that schwarz and co. are behind the wheel of car they cant control (maybe volcuk is ramming them with his van). but when its on its original and reflexive of the culture and inspired in a way that greys can't be by virtue of its limitations and genre.
and this year the OC is back to what made it so great. you don't know what you're going to get and its really funny but very emotional too. so while ryan cagefghting is crazy the emotion behind is true. and the new characters are great additions - mostly madame townsensd. so what im saying is... the OC may bye one of the top 3 best shows out there right at this minute. last year not so much. but right now - yes.
and the fact that they killed mischa barton off has real balls to it, the kind you dont find on other network shows.

Now that I have also watched VM´s latest episode "Of Vice and Men" there is only one thing I can tell you: You seriously cannot give up (or sort of give up) on that brilliant show.

And btw, you are absolutely right about The OC, it has gotten much much better I really do love the current episodes.

Been reading your blog for a while now and the story about your life made me laugh/think/cry big time. I am also working in the media section so I know how weird this can be.
