Lost Finale: Suck

[Edit: as time goes on, I'm starting to warm up to the ending some.]

If I want supernatural mumbo jumbo I'll go to church. Egads. It went from good science fiction to CS Lewis at the speed of suction. But at least they had what is likely a progenitor to chess in the third-to-last episode. That was cool.

Haiku summary of the entire series:
Plane crashed, all are dead.
Some go to heaven, some don't.
What a waste of time.

Multiple Choice: Which one is DK-Transform?

Wednesday, May 05, 2010

For those that aren't familiar with DK Transform

He is in top form at his most recent post, which not only provides a really useful overview of the online chess scene with statistics, and not only feeds my narcissism, but also even the comments are very helpful (see, e.g., Wormwood's comment). Thanks DK! It will take me a few reads to really process that fractal David-Foster-Wallacian post and give a proper comment.
