How the Timing on The Burning Beekeeper Lines Up

How accurately did ‘The Burning Beekeeper‘ sync up, when you layer each five-minute scene over the other? Pretty close, but not perfectly.

I may not have as high praise for the latest episode of How I Met Your Mother as our resident reviewer Ivey, but I admit I was intrigued at the filming style. Neil Patrick Harris even Tweeted that the scene from the kitchen timer’s start until the fiery end was exactly the same length. So how well did everything match up?

As it turns out, some enterprising bloke took it upon themselves to see how well the scenes merged together. The results are sometimes nearly dead-on, while other times it’s way off — even some of the dialog appears to have changed a tad from scene to scene. Still, it’s pretty fun to watch how the whole thing plays together, room-to-room.

Check it out for yourselves below, before the anti-fun squad come snag the thing away.

More on Who Is the Mother from HIMYM

about.the.motherThe biggest question on the minds of most How I Met Your Mother fans is simple… Who is the mother? Considering the response, let’s consider part one of this the article: About the Mother from How I Met Your Mother, I talked about what we know through Season 3.  With that as a reference, Let’s take another look at the mystery of the mother. (ps, I’ve closed comments on the old post 650+ is too much to read.)


FUN Facts (let’s have fun with these):

  • She was in the Economics 305 class, when Ted gives his Architecture lecture. (ref. s05e01, “Definitions” )
  • She was at the St. Patty’s day party where Ted was being a jerk and originally found the Yellow Umbrella (ref. s03e12 “No Tomorrow”)
  • She is Cindy’s (Rachel Bilson) room mate (ref. s05e12 “Girls vs. Suits” )
  • The mom now has her Yellow Umbrella back (ref. s05e12 “Girls vs. Suits” )
  • He doesn’t wait days to call (ref. s04e21 “Three Days Rule” )
  • Ted says he meets her the wedding from the Season 6 Premier. We know he is the best man at eh wedding and that it starts to rain and he forgot his umbrella. No mention of whose wedding, but it’s truly a big day. (ref. s06e01 “Big Days” )
  • Ted has not met her before “Lucky Penny”. Ted says his destiny was to stay in NY because if he hadn’t he never would have met their mother, while showing a wedding glimpse. (ref. s02e15 “Lucky Penny”)

Whose Wedding Was It

The BIG discussion from The How I Met Your mother Season 6 Premier entitled Big Days was pretty clear, who’s wedding was was Ted giving a toast at?

I mean it wasn’t Ted’s. And from what I’m hearing from twitter and the interweb, most speculate it was Robin or (and) Barney. With that said, here are some things to consider.

  1. Ted is giving the toast, so he is more than likely the best man.
  2. Marshall is wearing the same tux with the same boutonniere as Ted. So this leads us to think he is in the wedding as well.
  3. It has been argued that Lily is wearing a bridesmaid dress. It’s an ugly one if you asked me, but I can see their point.
  4. Barney & Robin are not seen in these future scenes. That’s gotta be by design. Either A. the HIMYM writers are trying to screw with our heads (which happens often) or B. They are involved and still inside.
  5. A reader named Annie said this and I loved the point:

    Ted started to tell the story from the day he met Robin. And he said she would be important to the story.
    He met Robin, they dated but it didn’t work out. Then she dated Barney, but it wasn’t the “right time” for them. Ted met Stella, got left at the altar and that led him to be a professor, wich is why he met Cindy. He returned the yellow umbrella he had taken. Now Cindy’s roommate (the mother) has the yellow umbrella. Sometime in the future Barney and Robin will be ready to get in a real serious relationship and they end up getting married. Barney’s best friend is Ted, so he would be the best man. Ted is nervous because: a) it’s his friends wedding b) He never thought he would make a toast at Robin’s wedding.

  6. Who else could it be?

I’ll add more to this as the conspiracy grows, but what do you think? Comments or the every so lovely poll below:

(PS, I reset teh votes to add Punchy… however pre glitter results showed Robin & Barney as teh clear favorites)

Barney Stinson's Office Posters

Ok How I Met Your Mother fans, it would seem there has always been a lot of speculation about the “butt load of motivational posters” in Barney Stinson’s Office. I actually get a question or comment related to this once a week or so… given the popularity of this topic I did some research, and feel it’s time now (before season 4 changes the wall again) the drop some knowledge. This post is only accurate through the end of Season 3, so feel free to comment and I’m sure there will be a revised post in the future.


the Evolution of a Roller Coaster Souvenir Photo

The art of taking a great souvenir poster while on a roller coaster is a time honored tradition.  Since my first time ever riding a roller coaster back at Opryland (It wasn’t the greatest park but I miss it much) I have always had this strange fascination with not only riding coasters but taking great souvenir photos as well.

Possibly the most famous (at least to my knowledge) is the quite creative “Playing Chess while on a Roller Coaster” shot, inspired by xkdc. (I should mention this modification on the chess coaster comic…though I’m not sure if the chess game or the woman not noticing is funnier.) The only other quite humorous and creative coaster photo involves extreme knitting, very impressive.
