I think I can see my house from here!
By the way, I found the cheapest way to get an airfare ticket (referring to last night's show) is to do a search on your favorite travel site, find the cheapest carrier, then go to that airline's website, and order the ticket there. It saves you booking fees (it's usually only 5 bucks, but hey, that buys you a glass of wine on the plane), and it lets you pick the seat you want, and do on-line check-in as well. When you want to do combined travel-hotel searches, those 3 travel sites you mentioned are probably the easiest, if not the cheapest option.

This is the coolest site you have ever shared with us. Thanks for the great find.

You keep saying that word. I do not think it means what you think it means:

peruse


( definition http://www.tfd.com/peruse )

Sorry

Saw todays show, damn they look uncomfortable, but sarah, whatever he did (or didn't do;-) forgive him or if Kev is reading this apologize! You guys look lost without each other, Kev was like tripping over his words today especially when he had to answer sarah's question about mini or shuffel. Oh well hope they do but probably not:(.
oh yeah, cool site!!

Bill

I agree with Sorry's post. :o( If there was any love there it's worth trying to fix.

benboxer

It must have been pretty ugly...they weren't talking to each other on camera for about a week and for some reason it was kind of depressing to me even though I dont really know them.

She did use the term correctly. If you read your own definition you posted, you would see that.

If it's anything like last year G4 the week of E3 is the second best thing to actually being there. Well, without the actual socializing or the playing of games or the the fun so much.. but it's still cool.

james/fudgeinsomniac

Thanks for the tip, Sarah. That site is awsome, you're the greatest!

Well get away from that piece of shit show on that network that nobody watches. And now lets see all the fucking losers flood in

has anyone found Area 51 on these Maps? that would be neat to see

The Inquisitor

Are you kidding me? Area 51 does not exist, young man. Never mind that we're buying up all the real estate around it, never mind that its been photographed, never mind that all trespassers will be shot on sight, it does not exist. Never has never will. And as for the rest of you, you saw nothing here, hear me Nothing else to see here people! Move along.

Hey Sarah! Love The Site!

Just go to work for one of the cable news networks and become the next Jeannie Moos(sp?) You could do that till you're 80 or something.

Do you mean Kevin 'Hump and Dump' Rose?

Your friggin hot!!!

Congradulations on the baby!

ttvfan

Just tell us if you guys are broken up. It's not fair to make your relationship so public and then to leave everyone wondering.

your friggin hot!!!

Ed

Um - so you've still got links to Kevin's website and moblog on your site, but he doesn't? I also see the move from "my love" to "Sarah Lane" at his "Links I recommend" section. Ditto for the glaring absence of "Sarah Lane" from his "Interests" section on the bio.

You, on the other hand, still list him on your resume / bio...

Is this a G4-related "Getting out of the public eye" thing, or have y'all hit a serious snag? The not-sitting-together-on-the-AOTS-couch thing isn't that comfortable, either.

Your moblog shows good times for the both of you till the start of last month. What's up?!

I hope y'all are / can get together (again). You'll make the best couple in technology TV. And if its about someone not popping the question - ask yourself this - what's more important? An emotion or a piece of paper?


I hope this post doesn't mysteriously vanish like my last one...

SYSTM.ORG HAS BEEN HACKED!!!
Check it out!

I knew Kevin had something like this.

Chili

I think all this speculation about Kevin and Sarah is opposite of what everyone's been saying. I believe Kevin and Sarah are getting married... especially after Kevin and Leo alluded to a secret that Kevin's keeping on the latest TWiT Podcast, information which he is supposed to reveal during next week's show. Perhaps the couple want to keep this bit of news on the down low until they've had a chance to tell everyone in their private lives. Anyone else agree?

remo

Great news!

Ed


I saw that on Kevin's blog. The big announcement next Monday, in addition to the Systm release. I really, really, really, really hope that its them getting married / engaged / (or more?!).

I agree - if they have made a decision, either just by themselves, or by "G4 pressure" to keep their personal lives out of the public eye - good for them. The downside is that a lot of people, who spent several months looking at their blog posts and moblog pics and feeling good about one of the best-looking pairs on a great show being together in real life; would feel really let down very abruptly.


Oh well, c'est la view...

i really hope that sarah and kevin quit g4 because the show they are a part of is lame now. since TSS is now defunked, i have been searching google and make loads of money, if you want to do the same follow the following link!

I guess asking everyone to have some respect for sarah's personal life would be too much to hope for?

And I don't care if they are on T.V. together, that doesn't make them cannon fodder for a bunch of nosey fanboys.

Ed

"....And I don't care if they are on T.V. together, that doesn't make them cannon fodder for a bunch of nosey fanboys."


Lemme get this straight - they are on TV; and they have websites and they have moblogs - all of which are voluntary. Their websites carry quasi-personal blog posts frequently. Ditto their moblogs.

So, is this the celeb-hypocrisy setting in? "See only what we want to show you, don't ask any additional questions about us than what we tell you - BUT be curious and interested about us"?

(And its not even them saying this. Its some self-appointed "online bodyguards" that seem to be waxing eloquent about protecting their private space)


There's a very fine line between "nosey" and "actively interested". And I'm sure there's a fine line between those and "stalker", too. However, none of us asked 'em to have moblogs, or even blogs, with any personal content.


In addition, these are people who have jobs on-screen, on technology-related television, i.e. a network broadcast medium that essentially caters to people who are inherently curious about the stuff that powers their lives, at least from a technology perspective. Assuming that this audience won't extend their curiosity to the faces they associate with their daily news fill would be naive. Furthermore, it would equally naive to assume that this audience would NOT apply the tools and techniques that they are familiar with to keep themselves updated with the latest and greatest on the online / on-screen personalities that they've grown to love.


If it weren't for speculation and curiosity, the world of entertainment would have a lot, lot, lot less "fanboys". There's only so much interest that "pure awe" and "respect" can generate, and maintain.

actively interested fan

Very well said ED, I couldn't agree more.

Ch...

“Lemme get this straight - they are on TV; and they have websites and they have moblogs - all of which are voluntary. Their websites carry quasi-personal blog posts frequently. Ditto their moblogs.”

Yes they are on TV. Yes they have websites and moblogs. And yes they are voluntary. But remember, it’s also voluntary for you to go to them. That doesn’t give you a free pass to make any comment you want about them on a personal level. (which apparently, you have, and have had that comment stricken…) Of all of the content on their websites and moblogs, how much of it really IS personal? Blog entries that point us to other websites, and pictures of menus and T-shirts are hardly quasi-personal. A small handful of the hundreds of pictures that are out there of Kevin and Sarah, and a sentence or two about their feelings for each other is not shoving their relationship down your throats. What’s on your camera phone? I’m sure there’s at least a few pics of your significant other, that is, assuming you have one.

“So, is this the celeb-hypocrisy setting in? "See only what we want to show you, don't ask any additional questions about us than what we tell you - BUT be curious and interested about us"?”

Here’s where it gets frustrating, for me. (Sorry for the upcoming rant…skip it if you want.) As a person whose chosen career happens to be in the public eye, there are many great rewards, and believe me, I’m thankful for them. But with those, come greatly frustrating moments. When I signed my contract with my agents they didn’t say “Oh, by the way, where’s your privacy? You don’t get to keep that anymore…” First and foremost I’m a daddy, a husband, a brother, a son and a friend. An actor comes far,far after those. I have no problem staying around until everyone who wants a pic or autograph gets one. I’ll shake every hand, stand in the freezing rain, and I’ll never be demanding. (And to be honest here, I’m really not that big of a “CELEBRITY!!”) But even I have limits on my privacy. For me, anything about my wife, kids, and family are off limits. Period. But Ed, you’re probably the guy who came up to me last month in the grocery store, while my infant daughter was crying, and wanted a shot of me and you on your camera phone. (hey, at least you asked…) I said “I’m really sorry, but right now isn’t the best time.” You huffed and mumbled something as you stomped off, and probably got on the internet and told everybody how big of an a#@hole I was. That’s what it can be like. You can be as big a di&khead as you want to me, but I can’t be one to you. Or else… Look, truthfully, 99.9% of the people I meet are so cool, and respectful, and decent. And that is EXACTLY how I treat them. Why? That’s how I was brought up. I like to think they see me as what I really am. Just a guy who loves his wife and kids, and completely understands how blessed and lucky I am to have fallen *ss-backwards into the type of small career that I have. How do you like (and respond) to gossip in your workplace? I used to work in a factory-I know it’s there. Whether you are “famous” or not, gossip is all around us, at school, the office, and in the workplace. With the exception of a few, none of us like to be included in the gossip, no matter where it is. And you know what? Usually nobody asks to be included in the gossip, no matter where it is.

“(And its not even them saying this. Its some self-appointed "online bodyguards" that seem to be waxing eloquent about protecting their private space)”

I think each and every one of us, especially in this day and age, can, and SHOULD appreciate privacy. The belief that someone who becomes famous should give up their right to privacy is a myth. If you ask me, Sarah and Kevin are handling themselves with a tremendous amount of class and dignity. By saying nothing.

“There's a very fine line between "nosey" and "actively interested". And I'm sure there's a fine line between those and "stalker", too. However, none of us asked 'em to have moblogs, or even blogs, with any personal content.”

And they didn’t ask you to leave ridiculous messages on those blogs, moblogs, and inboxes. One of the lamest and sorriest things on the planet right now has GOT to be Sarah Lane’s inbox. I can’t even fathom the amount of disgusting, rude, and insensitive comments that she has gotten. Can you imagine the amounts of shi*ty poetry, pathetic movie and song quotes, and unoriginal professions of love from afar? Leave her alone. Besides, who’s even said anything has happened in the first place?!?! I hope for some people’s sakes that neither Kevin nor Sarah ever publish the junk they’ve gotten sent to them in the past few weeks, or years, or whenever. They’re human beings. Not objects of fantasy or lust. Here’s a good rule of thumb: How about treating Sarah like she were your sister?

“In addition, these are people who have jobs on-screen, on technology-related television, i.e. a network broadcast medium that essentially caters to people who are inherently curious about the stuff that powers their lives, at least from a technology perspective. Assuming that this audience won't extend their curiosity to the faces they associate with their daily news fill would be naive. Furthermore, it would equally naive to assume that this audience would NOT apply the tools and techniques that they are familiar with to keep themselves updated with the latest and greatest on the online / on-screen personalities that they've grown to love.”

You have a point, Ed. You really do. But again, it doesn’t give you the right to be a jerk. If something did happen between Kevin and Sarah, they have the right keep it amongst themselves. When it comes to their private and personal lives, they owe you and us NOTHING. NOTHING. They don’t HAVE to shed some light on any subject they don’t choose to. Again, if you really look at the websites, and moblogs, I don’t see that much that is all that private and personal. And on TV, I think they’ve always conducted themselves (as it pertains to their relationship,) with some professionalism. Sure, there might have been a few longing looks at each other, or a touch of flirting, but come on, it’s not like they were ever groping, heavy petting, or making out on TV in front of us.

“If it weren't for speculation and curiosity, the world of entertainment would have a lot, lot, lot less "fanboys". There's only so much interest that "pure awe" and "respect" can generate, and maintain.”

While I would die defending your right to free speech, I respectfully disagree with the points you’ve made. I like to think that we are the keepers of the internet. It’s only going to have the amount of respect, decency, and privacy that we put into it. Nobody’s blog exists for anybody to be a jerk on. No comments section on anyone’s blog is a requirement. You don’t have to post anything there. Websites, blogs, and moblogs aren’t really two-way-dialogue kinds of things. But Ed, I don’t want you to shut up, and I’m not saying you specifically are leaving unrespectful comments. You’re a fan, that’s cool with me. But it’s really hard to make the comments you’ve posted and then say:

“I hope this post doesn't mysteriously vanish like my last one...”

If you’re going to base your argument on your feelings that nobody asked Kevin or Sarah to put blogs, websites and moblogs online, then I’m not sure that it gives you much wiggle room to complain when your comments get removed. It’s a little hypocritical. Because under your theory, if true, that nobody asked them to post things online, then the same applies in reverse. They didn’t ask you…..

Ed

“Lemme get this straight - they are on TV; and they have websites and they have moblogs - all of which are voluntary. Their websites carry quasi-personal blog posts frequently. Ditto their moblogs.”

Yes they are on TV.... assuming you have one.


The comment that was stricken involved (strictly) a factual observation between two versions of a website, and a concerned question about well-being, followed by a "hope for the best" closing. I was surprised that it was deleted because I've seen far worse be retained, and led me to wonder if there was any truth to the conjecture presented by my previous post.

“So, is this the celeb-hypocrisy setting in? "See only what we want to show you, don't ask any additional questions about us than what we tell you - BUT be curious and interested about us"?”

Here’s where it gets frustrating, for me.... no matter where it is.


I imagine you, or any "upcoming celebrity" will shake any hand and sign any writable media, even in the freezing rain, till your bank account doesn't register six figures in somewhat disposable income. Following that stage, history and continuing tales of verifiable "celebrity behavior" repeat the same general sentiment - "Socially-inaccessible actor with starry tantrums". Its interesting to me 'cause the six figures in disposable income owe themselves, in huge part, to the people standing with outstretched hands bearing autograph books, in the freezing rain - who get shot down once the celebrity climbs the so-called "A list".


You make good points about gossip. However, in my opinion, their relevance to my previous post is peripheral, 'cause I guess my post was about 'busting the gossip' (have they or haven't they?) rather than contributing to it.


Y'know - I'm not going to do this any more. Slicing and dicing through retorts just takes up too much space, and too much time. Take that either as a me doing a throw-in-my-hat / wave-the-white-flag or as me taking-it-out-on-the-weight-bag-instead. I appreciate you taking the time to put your thoughts down, I really do. I think Sarah (and Kevin) are fortunate to have well-wishers like you. Perhaps someday you'll see that I wasn't trying to defend being nosy, or that I wasn't asking them to tell us what's going on; and that all I did ask for was that they respect the "fanboy" attention that made them the "Kevin and Sarah" we (think we) know and love. How exactly? I don't know - but I do know its missing.


You seem like a stand-up online citizen, and a fairly lucid one at that. I'm sorry that your comments show a somewhat lopsided understanding of my previous post(s), but I'll attribute that to a couple of things - #1: Perhaps I didn't wax eloquent as well as I should have and/or #2: You're a true well-wisher who wants to quash all potential bubbling rumors and other "bad stuff" off the moblog as quickly and thoroughly as possible.


While forums and boards such as these are often known for "flame wars" that often stem from concerned conversations like these, I think I'd like to keep this from being one. They're great people, and are / were a great couple. Kudos to them for being who they are, and for all their great work - and to you for being the proactive friend / well-wisher. May your tribe increase.

Ch...

Ed,

Point(s) taken. No flame wars from this end. A tip o' the hat to you. Peace.

I think it's just the disrespect that I see that bothers me.

I'm guilty of sending stupid emails, like asking kevin what graphics card to get and not getting an answer (not that I blame him) or asking sarah which hunter thompson book I should read a long time ago.

But at no point have I even had the disillusion to think that that really served a point other than, lets call it, an attempt at getting a little piece of communication with people I look up to on t.v. I think that's natural to an extent. Being a fan is natural to an extent.

What seems wrong is the way that people line up, hidden behind their computer screens, to diss out ass loads of harsh words, bad and unknowledgeable judgements, pointed opinions and just in general act like tactless jerks.

But people have feelings, even people on t.v. and we are all just lucky people like Sarah still do post on their blogs for the people that care.

And note, as Ch.. said, I don't recall ever seeing Sarah bring up her personal life with a "please everyone discuss it" type of vibe going on. And honestly, more and more her blog posts are becomming few and far between and shorter and colder. I would beg to argue its because of the previously discussed stuff.

But then I would be making assumptions. Like I would assume that Morgan didn't like it too much when some horney fanboy held up her magazine bikini shoot in the background today at e3 or how they all hoot like cavemen and scream "morgan". Maybe she should be flattered but if you ever read her blog way back when... well, I think she's probably just scared of people like that after the way they acted to her.

That has nothing to do with sarah but I see the same kinda disrespect and it makes me sad. I know it's too much to hope that people would not suck on the internet.

John-Paul

By the way Ed I'm not talking about you I hope it didn't seem that way after you referenced a quote from me. I'm not trying to cause flame wars either. I'm just saying I've seen some brutal things said over the years and I don't think just because Sarah has a blog that is a valid explination or makes it understandable cruelty.

sarah, did u break up with kevin? if so, can u email me for a date? i will wine & dine u... u'll never have to work for the rest of ur life...
