Really, there’s not much more negative commentary to offer on the Buffalo Bills this season. Before providing the link to the image gallery, I’ll just offer you the fact that I gave all available effort to berating offensive coordinator Turk Schonert after each dumbass offensive play call. Turk was about ten rows behind me, in the relative comfort of a warm booth shielded from the elements. While I very much would like to keep Billieving, I have to weigh that commitment against the countless hours wasted rooting this team on. I’m fairly certain it’s starting to shave months off of my lifespan. Bills Fever! Catch it!

While I don’t particularly like talking about myself (this site and its exhaustive accounting of Jeff Fischer-related minutiae notwithstanding), I’ll say 2008 was quite a year for Mr. Fischer, and many of the people reading this blog are to thank for that. No details, with apologies: it’s been a wildly up-and-down year for yours truly, but I think it’s turned out to be a mostly good one in the end.
You can expect the same whizbang content you’ve come to expect from the site in 2009, and I plan to add a few new features to really take us to the next level (break out your 3-D glasses). But sincerely, thank you for coming to this site and reading my never-ending torrent of first drafts published for your reading pleasure. I would not still be doing this if I didn’t have some loyal readers, and I’ll continue to put stuff out there as long as you guys keep reading it, Lost-related and otherwise.
Everyone have a great holiday and an even better 2009. Big things are in store!

I’m on a trip-report-writing tear at the moment, having just finished Virginia 2007, so what better time than now to write another one?

Okay, it’s been two weeks since I wrote that sentence above; I developed a severe case of writer’s block and haven’t touched this report ’til today. Of course, I could have said nothing and you’d have been none the wiser. But no, I hold nothing back from my readers; I lay it all on the line for you. And by “all,” I mean “several minutes of my time.” But I digress. Sit back and enjoy the latest excerpt from my forthcoming auto-biography, “Gee Willickers: A Boy’s Life.”
Listen to the video from 0:03 to 0:05, then listen to this:
‘Tis the season.
I AM THRILLED TO BE A FAN OF THE BUFFALO BILLS!
As part of Lost’s semi-annual hiatus alternate-reality game, they’ve been giving glimpses of new content for the upcoming season (which starts January 21st). At the end of their newest video, focusing on the many books featured on episodes of the show, this logo flashes:
I’ll refer to it as “The Lighthouse” for now. You can see the rest of the logos here.

The long trek down to Virginia from Buffalo was pretty uneventful until I reached the rugged back country of West Virginia, greeted with some breathtaking views whilst navigating the 168 hairpin curves up and down the Allegheny Mountains. Had I the misfortune of plummeting over the sheer cliff faces alongside the road, at least I would’ve had a fantastic, panoramic view of the countryside!
