Hey.

First, a big thanks to all of the visitors to my church Sunday night. The Duvalls and the Singletons. Both of you guys really help inspire and raise our hopes when you visit, and it means a lot to us. I know you guys probably don't read this, but I thought I'd give it a shot anywho. Thanks guys!

Second note, people........you make me sad :(. Sunday's entry was "End of the World (as We Know It) by R.E.M. You can tell by the album its an R.E.M. song....plus.....c'mon!

:( No free Vaults for anyone. :(

Ok, so with the formalness out of the way, I present to you a new thing I'm thinking about starting a new "segment" comparing and contrasting two shows. Its called: Versus.



Well, due to an overwhelming condition I call “boring life”, I am just going to rag on TV some more. Today’s entry, for no particular reason, I am going to compare Heroes with Lost in a no holds barred match. It will consist of 3 rounds, each with its own rules, which I will explain before. So let’s get this over with.

Round 2: All and Nothing.


In this round, only one point is given per category, to the series that best exemplifies the category. Just because one gets it doesn’t mean the other doesn’t have it, but just that it does a better job of it.

Round 3: The Not-So-Good Things….


This is a round where only one point is given per category, but this time, the total points received are deducted from the total, as these are things a series really SOULDN’T do. Both series could fit in the same category. So who screws up the least?
