Holy crap you guys

I’ve just been reading all the comments you guys have left me for the finale recap. I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you all. Seriously. People often asked me over the years why I bothered spending so much time writing these Lost recaps for a bunch of total strangers.

The comments you guys left me…that’s exactly why I did it. Now I feel like one of Jacob’s special snowflakes.

I wish I could thank you each individually, but this will have to suffice! THANK YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!! Your kind comments mean more to me than you know :D

How to Help Chile

March 1st, 2010 § 1 comment § permalink

As many of you know, an 8.8 magnitude earthquake hit Chile this Saturday, causing tons of devastation and killing hundreds of people. There were aftershocks this morning that caused even more damage.

I know lots of us donated money when the Haiti earthquake hit, and the Chilean people need just as much help now.

Text a donation and do your good deed for the day :D

  • Text the word “CHILE” to 25383 to donate $10 on behalf of the Habitat for Humanity
  • Text the word “CHILE” to 20222 to donate $10 on behalf of World Vision
  • Text the word “CHILE” to 52000 to donate $10 on behalf of the Salvation Army
  • Text the word “CHILE” to 90999 to donate $10 on behalf of the American Red Cross

You can also make donations through the following websites:

American Red Cross
Americares
Google Crisis Response
World Vision Disaster Response Fund

If anyone knows of any other sites or ways to help let me know and I’ll add it to the post. Thanks!

Quick Update & Damon Interview

October 27th, 2009 § 6 comments § permalink

Hello people of the interwebs! I’ve been getting emails steadily for a few weeks now, from readers who are wondering just where the hell I disappeared to. I haven’t fallen into the Bermuda Triangle or gotten sucked into a time warp and been blasted back to 1974. The truth is much more boring than that – I’ve just been super, super busy. Real life has been kicking my ass in a multitude of ways, and the more hectic things get, the less time I have to update Ye Olde Acke Attacke.

Never fear. Soon enough Lost will be back, and my recaps will be back with it. I also have a huge backlog of Benry Know Best comics that I should have posted ages ago, so keep a lookout for them.

Thanks for your concern, guys! I’m not dead! (I feel happy! I feeel happyyyy!!)

And while we’re here…

There is a great interview with Damon Lindelof on Pop Candy about all things Lost: Damon Lindelof Tackles Your Questions!!!

I love that guy. I know I’ll be listening to “Visions of Johanna” much more closely from now on. (But seriously, “Homecoming” >>> “Stranger in a Strange Land.” Come on.)

;____; *JEARS OF PURE JOY* ;____;


I am completely bowled over by the ridiculously generous readers of this little site of mine. I’d just like to thank each and every person who felt compelled to donate money toward buying me this wonderful gift. It is honestly one of the nicest things anyone has ever done for me. Seriously.

From time to time, my involvement in the Lost fandom becomes a bit…overwhelming. Once people I know in “real life” hear about how much work goes into writing my Lost recaps (and running ongoing posts and discussions posts, etc. etc.) they always ask me the same thing – Why? Why the hell spend so much of your free time making up dumbass jokes about fictional characters on a TV show?

And I’ll admit that sometimes, when I’m sitting in front of my computer, writing for the 12th hour in a row on a Saturday night, after having watched the latest episode three times, racking my brain in an attempt to come up with some new way to make fun of Jack, wishing I had just gone out and gotten drunk like the rest of my friends, attempting to ignore the emails flooding my inbox from Lost fans all over the world (some nice, some…not so nice), and trying desperately to finish my new recap by Sunday, I often think to myself, “Yeah, why the hell am I doing this??”

But you know what, guys? The answer – for my friends, coworkers, family, and myself – is always the same. The fact that I am somehow able to make a few thousand fellow Lost fans smile, or dare I say it, ~*Laugh Out Loud*~, makes me feel like I’m putting a teeny bit of happiness out into the world, and that’s all the reason I need. Just knowing that I brightened a total stranger’s day makes me feel like it’s all worth it.

So, to all of you who donated to my {totally frivolous} cause, you’ve brightened this total stranger’s day/week/month/year. I’ve got a case of the warm and fuzzies that will probably last until January. Every time I use this iPod, I’ll be reminded of how awesome you guys are. :D

THANK YOU GUYS, SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!! You all RULE. And special thanks to Kevin, the mastermind behind this entire thing. I’m sure this has earned him a spot on Jacob’s “Good” list for a long time coming.

Operators are standing by

September 11th, 2009 § 3 comments § permalink

So, a VERY kind reader has set up a fundraiser to help me buy a new iPod, since mine is about to die forever and I am very (VERY) broke! If you’re feeling saucy and you’d like to throw a buck or two my way for bringing you the lolz every week, check this out: Click here to donate!!!

Your money isn’t debited until after the goal has been reached, so if this doesn’t work (which I have a feeling will probably happen LOL come on, I’m a realist) your pledge will never be cashed in.

*feels special forever*

Thanks, Kevin :D

Well, I feel special now.
