That thing in the jungle works for Channel 4.

Last night, Channel 4 launched Lost on UK TV. And to prevent Jen from asking again next year, Evangeline Lilly is Kate the brunette, willowy, lovely and (now-)escaped criminal - well, I assume she's a criminal from the handcuffs - and Maggie Grace is Shannon the model. The spoilt brat of a model. The blonde spoilt brat of a model. The beautiful, slim, hardbodied blonde spoilt brat of a model. Along with Emilie de Ravin, they provide the main eye candy for male viewers. And do so very well... well, anyway, it was very good though the first part of the pilot was overall better than the second (and I know this was the pilot, but the ending could still have been a bit stronger).

What pissed me off about this meeting of minds between overseers of Sydney Bristow and Jordan Cavanaugh (co-creator Damon Lindelof used to write for Crossing Jordan), apart from C4's snipping of the scene where Jack, Kate and Charlie flee from the plane and later find the pilot's body, was the way they decided to show it in two parts with Big Brother in the middle. Big Cunting Brother. Big Social Experiment Cum Excuse At Laughing At Idiots And Getting Glamour Model Softporn On TV Brother. Even with the sound off I was convinced that these are not people I wanted to spend any amount of time watching. As if holding it back for the summer wasn't enough.

Ah well, it'll soon be over. And Lost continues on Sunday. And Wednesday. And hopefully sans cuts. But I'm not holding my breath.

This blog is the production of a man who has been dead since 1987? Interesting.

From what I've heard, only Australia has managed to make Big Brother actually interesting to viewers... and sad to say, they lost me completely this year.

May have to add Lost to a list of possible shows to watch, if I ever get a chance.

Is this an undiscovered gem priced to go higher!!
Please read the following Announcement in its Entirety and Consider the Possibilities�
Watch this One to Trade!

IFLH announces Senator David Cain has joined its Board of Directors!!

IFLH volume trading is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement. The value of this
stock appears poised for growth! This one should not remain on the ground floor for long.

InterFinancial Holdings, Corp. (OTC Pink Sheets: IFLH - News) announced that they have added
David Cain to their board of directors. David Cain is currently the Chairman of the advisory
board to TTI (Texas Transportation Institute). Senator Cain represented Senate District 2 for
eight years in the Texas Senate and Chaired the Senate State Affairs Subcommittee on
Transportation and served nine terms in the Texas House of Representatives for District 107.

During his twelve years as Chairman of the House Committee on Transportation, Senator Cain�s
efforts on behalf of the people of Texas have been widely recognized. He was named to Texas
Monthly Magazine�s list of Ten Best Legislators, the Dallas Morning News said he was one of
the outstanding legislators of the 73rd session, and the Texas Department of Transportation
awarded him the Russell H. Perry Award in 1995 for his efforts to gain public awareness of
the need for and benefits of transportation facilities in the State of Texas.

Jeffrey C. Bruteyn, Managing Director, stated, We at InterFinancial are proud to have such a
widely recognized Senator join our board and oversee out automotive lending division. His
affiliations and connections to the automotive industry will be invaluable to our company.
Senator Cain will be instrumental in expediting our approval to use a government issued Seller
Finance License.

Seller Finance Licenses are very difficult to obtain and are usually reserved for the Big Boys
with heavy lobbyists. These licenses are highly coveted because it allows the finance company
to collect the entire down payment, instead of paying a portion of it to the taxing authority.
This dramatically helps a finance company�s bottom line if the buyer defaults on the loan.

With the new GPS tracking systems being installed on every car to dramatically improve
repossessions and with Senator Cain on the Board of Directors, InterFinancial Holdings
is ready to take their business to the next level.


The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little known Companies
That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens. This stock will not be a Secret for long.
