This just made my day

This is the first comment on my last post.

Charles J. said...
HEY! Nothing to do with your BLOG but I just came from the SPINAL TAP concert at the Paramount theater here in Oakland, Ca. and they gave you guys (LOST) a shout out! BY SPINAL TAP! They said they were sorry we were all going to miss the show tonight.

Thanks for letting me know CJ. (Can I call you CJ?)

Beth is so jealous because she LOVES them.


Clare said...

I had no idea Spinal Tap were still performing. Genius band. And the shout out, fully deserved!

Paul Spooner said...

I hope they turned their amps up to 11!

M@ said...

haha 11!

me said...

I have a sneaking suspicion he won't mind you calling him 'CJ' :-D ..Just a hunch.

Jenea said...

This just made your day in bad or good way?

Evonne said...

So hey, Mr Garcia... I had this dream about you... Ummm, will Miss Beth come kick my butt now?
In my dream you and I were at some party and somebody hurt me somehow. So I dragged him over to you and said this was the guy who hurt me. You dragged him off to hurt hium back. I don't really recall anything else in the dream, just that.
So, either I am really addicted to Lost... or I'm crazy. Maybe both.
So thanks for coming to my rescue, but I wonder why I needed it when I am 6ft and 2hundredmumblemumble lbs. Hmmm.

I am still trying to figure out how the dinosaur's legs worked in el hormiguero. Did the orange juice you drank tasted alright? Spinal Tap... I just learn so many new things from you on this blog!!!

Hi Jorge!
I had a friend who is studying in Madrid this year and you signed her a photo the other day, she's so happy that I wanted to say thank you again!!

What a great photo in the last post for your "album" XD

redelf said...

I need to expose my oldest son to Spinal Tap...he would love them.

Fallingslowly said...

I fell asleep when my boyfriend tried to introduce me to Spinal Tap through the movie. Now, im reconsidering watching it..

Nate said...

Well CJ, it was convenient that the Spinal Tap show was last night, because there was no new episode last night! Just a recap. Still very nice, put a lot of things in perspective.

Sergy said...

Hey Jorge! Since it's Saint George's day in many places today... congratulations from Spain! xD


Topanga said...

My back hurt so bad last night in bed I thought I needed a spinal tap.

Derek Brink said...

Well that's pretty awesome! Now if you could just get a mention by the Folksmen...

Michelle said...

Last nights recap show showed the clip of you throwing the hot pocket at Michael Emerson.
How excited were you when you found out you got to throw a hot pocket? It just looked fun.

Deneph said...

I was at that concert last night too. They thanked the audience for coming out on a wednesday night and missing Lost to see them. They told us to just go to the Orchid and turn the wheel and we should still be able to catch the ep. Made me love them even more.

Ms. O. said...

Just discovered your blog yesterday and proceeded to spend multiple hours of my life a-reading all of your archives b-forwarding various tidbits to friends (causing a few to wake up and email me with variations on "WTF?" "WHERE/WHY did you find THAT!!!!") c-literally LOL over and over again. THANK YOU!

Wow a shout out from Spinal Tap! Who's next Mettalica?

Pam C. said...

I just saw that on the other post. Very cool, Jorge - I'd say a shout-out from Spinal Tap is right up there! Congrats!

Lios Mil said...

Hi! I´m from Spain, Barcelona. I saw you in Hormiguero Show... :)
I don´t really like this program...
But you were very well!
Nice to meet you.
We´re so fanatics of Lost...


Willie said...

heye, you wanna go to have some drinks in Madrid? just tell me!

Nigel Tufnel: The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and...
Marty DiBergi: Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?
Nigel Tufnel: Exactly.
Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder?
Nigel Tufnel: Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?
Marty DiBergi: I don't know.
Nigel Tufnel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?
Marty DiBergi: Put it up to eleven.
Nigel Tufnel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder.
Marty DiBergi: Why don't you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?

23 of April it's saint Jorge!

groovymom said...

This is timely - because we NEVER miss LOST, but we did last night because we went to see David Sedaris. I was having guilt (but not enough to miss his show.)

Would LOVE to see the Spinal Tap/Mighty Wind group!!! Alas, they are not coming through St. Louis!

Avinash said...

Bill Hicks - "Life is like a ride at an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it, you think it's real, because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round and it has thrills and chills and it's very brightly colored and it's very loud. And it's fun, for a while.

Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question: 'Is this real? Or is this just a ride?' And other people have remembered, and they come back to us and they say 'Hey! Don't worry, don't be afraid - ever - because... this is just a ride.' And we kill those people.

'Shut him up! We have a lot invested in this ride! Shut him up! Look at my furrows of worry; look at my big bank account, and my family. This has to be real.'

It's just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that - ever notice that? - and we let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter, because... it's just a ride, and we can change it any time we want. It's only a choice. No effort. No worry. No job. No savings and money. Just a choice, right now, between fear and love."

Roberta said...

The world is LOSTaholic!!!
That's the best show ever...

Becky said...

Love it! Spinal Tap rocks!

Paul Spooner said...

RIP Bill Hicks...he got off the ride far too early.

Jason Russell said...

I'm sure I'd feel worse if I weren't so heavily sedated.

D. said...

Wonder if Charles J. is my cousin.. hmm same name and first last name initial... I can tell you the whole time we were living on O'ahu, I kept praying I'd run into some of the productions or actors. We left there in 2006 (military move back to the mainland) but have wonderful memories--including our daughter being baptized by her grandfather on Malekehana Beach where the first plane crash occurred. There are only a few shows we watch every week and LOST is our #1 show. Aloha and mahalo for the great work!

Christina Bauer said...

hahaha! yep--their amps better have been up to 11!

Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you,

There was this guy who believed very much in true love and decided to take his time to wait for his right girl to appear. He believed that there would definitely be someone special out there for him, but none came.
Every year at Christmas, his ex-girlfriend would return from Vancouver to look him up. He was aware that she still held some hope of re-kindling the past romance with him. He did not wish to mislead her in any way. nike shoxsSo he would always get one of his girl friends to pose as his steady whenever she came back. That went on for several years and each year, the guy would get a different girl to pose as his romantic interest. So whenever the ex-girlfriend came to visit him, she would be led into believing that it was all over between her and the guy. nike womens shoes The girl took all those rather well, often trying to casually tease him about his different girlfriends, or so, as it seemed! In fact, the girl often wept in secret whenever she saw him with another girl, but she was too proud to admit it. Still, every Christmas, she returned, hoping to re-kindle some form of romance. But each time, she returned to Vancouver feeling disappointed.
Finally she decided that she could not play that game any longer. puma mens shoes Therefore, she confronted him and professed that after all those years, he was still the only man that she had ever loved. mens puma shoesAlthough the guy knew of her feelings for him, he was still taken back and have never expected her to react that way. He always thought that she would slowly forget about him over time and come to terms that it was all over between them. nike shox Although he was touched by her undying love for him and wanted so much to accept her again, he remembered why he rejected her in the first place-she was not the one he wanted. nike 360 air maxSo he hardened his heart and turned her down cruelly. nike running shoesSince then, three years have passed and the girl never return anymore. They never even wrote to each other. NIKE air shoes The guy went on with his life..... still searching for the one but somehow deep inside him, he missed the girl.
On the Christmas of 1995, he went to his friend's party alone. "Hey, how come all alone this year? Where are all your girlfriends? What happened to that Vancouver babe who joins you every Christmas?", asked one of his friend.nike air max He felt warm and comforted by his friend's queries about her, still he just surged on.
Then, he came upon one of his many girlfriends whom he once requested to pose as his steady. He wanted so much to ignore her ..... not that he was impolite,wholesale nike shoes but because at that moment, he just didn't feel comfortable with those girlfriends anymore. nike shox torchIt was almost like he was being judged by them. The girl saw him and shouted across the floor for him. Unable to avoid her, he went up to acknowledge her.
"Hi......how are you? Enjoying the party?" the girl asked.
"Sure.....yeah!", he replied.
She was slightly tipsy..... must be from the whiskey on her hand.

In 1981, ed hardy and his wife formed Hardy Marks Publications. In 2004, Christian Bale licensed the rights to produce the high-end Ed Hardy UK line, which is based on Hardy's imagery. Prior to the ed hardy clothing line, Bale was the Head Designer at Von Dutch Originals, which marketed the imagery of Kenny Howard. Don ed hardy, commented, As demand for my artwork continues to skyrocket, I felt it was ed hardy clothing time to take on a partner that could help me manage the demand and opportunities for the ed hardy T-shirts name. Iconix is at the forefront of brand management and clearly has the capabilities to dramatically grow the Ed Hardy UK business. I'm thrilled to have them as a partner. Cheap Ed Hardy are located in everywhere. We also believe that by owning the brand alongside ed hardy clothing, the founder, there will be opportunities to further leverage his iconic name along with his new artwork.
