It's a miracle! A Christian miracle!

Oh Universe, you never cease to amaze me. Just a few days after this post, I attended a Power Yoga master class with Bryan Kest. If I had to pick a guru, he would be it. A swearing, burping, no holds barred Californian yogi, he cuts through bullshit like nobody's business. It was the most refreshing and authentic yoga class I've ever taken. Dude, you ROCK.

He also mentioned that ANYTHING in moderation is fine. My bacon eating, wine drinking, reckless spending ways thank you Bryan. I know, I know, moderation is key. I'll try to keep that in mind... 

In other news, we finished watching the final Season of Lost this past weekend. When it was all over, the only word that came to my mind was: Huh? I was not satisfied in the least with the ending. 

Sure, there were many moments that caused me to tear up ever so slightly (masterful emotional manipulation on the part of the writers and director) but so many questions were left unanswered. You can only distract me so long with Hallmark channel-like melodrama. Once that drivel is over with, I will still want answers.

I have to give the creators and writers props for having the courage to delve into some deep, philosophical shit. However, there are gaping holes still shrouded in mystery. I feel like there could have been an additional season, explaining all the things that were just left there, unanswered. 

Ending it in a church, with all those religious overtones; and the whole good vs. evil, Cain and Abel biblical story, etc. that permeated the final season was a bit too... conventional. I expected more from this show, especially after the complexity of the previous seasons.

I'm not sure why they decided to end it after six seasons (too expensive? too intelligent?) but that was a bad call. This show had something, until it went all born again Christian on our ass. If I'm not mistaken, the Republican Party doesn't own ABC. They have Fox. Why so greedy? Can't you give us free-thinking liberals some breathing space? Bastards. When in doubt, I blame the Republicans.

And remember, Agent Turple, that among the things that should be taken in moderation is moderation.
