Comment Box: Bindi Irwin's Croc Men and Other 'Lost' Causes
What exactly are Crocmen? -- surlychick asks, with no noticeable trace of surliness, in Thanksgiving: Celebs with a Side of Cheese
Despite Byoolin's assertion that Crocmen are "mythical creatures, with the head of a man and the body of a crocodile," it turns out they're an ill-paid quintet of yellow-shirted back-up singers who do nothing to distract one from the fact that Bindi Irwin is lip-synching. Which does nothing to distract one from the fact that Bindi, a nine-year-old Australian child who lost her father only 14 months ago, spends some of her November mornings forced to sing and dance on a parade float. Which does nothing to distract from the fact that Good Charlotte, who also "performed" from a float (the Hess gas station float), has officially jumped the shark. Which, obviously, does nothing to distract us from the fact that another parade performer, Dolly Parton, looks like some kind of science experiment in which the genes of Barbie, Vince Neil and Joan Rivers were regrettably combined.
'Lost' Book Club: Your Choice
Last Monday, Jen Chaney and I asked you to nominate reading material for the December 'Lost' Book Club selection. Thanks to some very insightful nominations, we were able to whittle the choices down to the 10 books arrayed below. We eliminated any books that we weren't able to find referenced directly on the air, though, yes "Sole Survivor" and "Slaughterhouse Five" sure do sound familiar. We also eliminated one of the nominees because it will be the January selection. We also struck "Getting Lost: Survival, Baggage and Starting Over in JJ Abrams' Lost" -- though I'd recommend it, along with J. Wood's "Living Lost: Why We're All Stuck on the Island." Cast your vote below. We'll announce the winning selection during Wednesday's discussion of the November selection, "A Brief History of Time."
And, yes, we're going to temporarily ignore rumors of "Lost's" TV return being bumped to 2009.
