LIKE 'LOST,' ONLY IN A BAR

The Springfield bloggers met Tuesday evening at Patton Alley Pub, drawing more than a dozen of the Unusual Suspects. For those who give a shattenkirk about it, Tony Messenger of the News-Leader made an appearance but brought no mugs.

Sitting there it occurred to us that the local bloggers -- so different in backgrounds, so varied in writing styles and textures of thought -- are pretty much the homely home version of "Lost," that television show on ABC.

We've got Andy @ Rhetorica, who's the hip Charlie, only Charlie would know Nirvana. Fat Jack is Hurley, sans hair. Marmot is Michael, if Michael wasn't a dude. Chiles is Jin Kwon (again with the gender caveat).

John Stone is Locke -- potentially insane, but the smart guy at the table and the only one who can save us from this damned island. God help us all.

That is hysterical. Can I be Mr. Ecko?

Fat Jack said...

Crack my ass up.

I think it's more like "Cheers", and Stone is like Cliff Clavin, minus the postal uniform.

That would make Ron the "Woody" character, though, wouldn't it?

Of course you'd align me with a dude. Heh.

John Stone said...

Thank goodness I am having to work on a dial up until Bell can figure out how to rehook their DSL ... I have faith, they are smart guys ... or I would have some pithy comeback ...

HAHAHAHAHA ...

Libertarians (the Ali Syndrome) ... sting like a bee ... and then die ....

Understand the Lost references I do not.

Fat Jack said...

Et tu, Ron Davis?

Which LOST character would you be?

The Libertarian Guy said...

Um, John... we've been a party for 30 years. When's the "die" part come in? ;)

Or are ya just sore over the Cliff reference?

Ron would have to be Jack of course! Smart, acerbic and never backing down from a good fight.When he's not fighting the Others, he's helping the survivors and organizing the troops. Sounds like the chatterguy.

Ron Davis said...

Actually, I'm Sun Kwon. Or dead Boone.

Ron would be whichever character likes to rub shoulders with people who matter and pretend that means he matters, too.

Anon: Actually, I know I don't matter. None of us do.
