Mysteries of the Universe part 3 New Image

Just in case we had all got too wrapped up in the search for art, one of the other viral / ARG / marketing for LOST this year is Mysteries of the Universe and the site appears to have been updated.



The new image is a Dharma Bagua for the Staff station Click for a link to the Lostpedia article on the Staff

This does not appear to be a graphic, but a real life version of the logo.

Frame 3 Clue 2 and 3 51



Looking at the Attack Of The Show schedule there is a segment called DVDUesday, it is described on the AOTS website as - "Our resident film expert, Chris Gore, of Film Threat Magazine, visits every Tuesday to give us all the news on the world of DVDs, new, old, collectable, and strange."


(Thanks to Tim Maguire for the schedule information)

The image of the legs is taken from the Attack Of The Show hosts page.

Frame 3 Clue 1 163

A new clue for Frame 3 has been posted



This translates to A-O-T-S

Thanks to Sayid'sGirl for letting us know about the clue and Cypher80b for the translation.

There are two possible web sites that this clue could lead us to -

The Canadian G4 TV show - Attack Of The Show (Pat advised via email that the show is in fact filmed in Los Angeles)



The British Art website - Art Of The State



There is also ArtofTheState.Com which only has a triangle image on the site, it looks a little like the Greek Delta symbol. The name of the .jpg file is AOTS.JPG



Could AOTS be an anagram of SATO, as Bryan Sato played a background Character called Richard.

Cupcake Capers Roundup 56

The second poster was revealed today as a Locke centric piece.

Many thanks to all the people that went down to the store today to find out what was going on and to send us back information. This is all made more interesting by having real people at the events.

A special mention has to go to Eugene and Mary for all the updates via Twitter.

So now a round up of what happened and what was revealed, first off when the store opened, the staff didn't seem to know much about what was going on. However they did start to hand out some free gifts :



This skateboard deck is cool on it's own, and apparently only 8 of 20 were given out to fans, but it did have something else etched into it -



This took us to the new poster site http://thatandbasketweaving.com where the new poster is now for sale.

Also etched into the skateboard on closer inspection are the numbers -


(Images from Lewis C on Twitter)

Also given away was this T-Shirt, it shows the logo for Canton-Rainier Carpet Cleaning, Canton Rainier was seen in a season 5 episode.

(Photo from Lewis C on Twitter

Then one more odd thing was discovered, a sign on the shop door dor Build Your World, this is the organisation Sayid was working for when he had finished with Ben's list. This seems to be completely unrelated to the rest of the items and poster. (Photo courtesy of greenamonggray.blogspot.com

Frame 2 - Newbury / Weds 89

A new clue has appeared on the DamonCarltonandaPolarBear Hub page :




Holywood_Bob has told us about the location of the photograph - "it is a shot of the opening of a store called johnny cupcakes on newbury st in Boston. it is an indy tshirt shop." Click here to go to the Jonny Cupakes website.

The store in the photograph is on Newbury Street in Boston and also on Newbury Street happens to be the International Poster Gallery which is holding an exhibition on - 'Time Travel: A Century of Travel Posters'. (This information came from several sources, but the first was from Mrz Z on the Dark UFO Spoiler TV forum)

Also on Newbury Street there is Newbury Comics (Thanks to LotteryTicket and Sayid'sGirl for this)

This is not a confirmed event yet at either place, but it does seem likely that either the Johnny Cupcakes shop, because of the photograph, or the poster museum is the venue given the nature of what we are searching for. More information will be posted here when we know more.



Update - 2:39pm(est)

This new image has appeared on the Hub page :



Update - 5:45pm(est)

The biggest clue yet, confirming the location and the time :





A possible Johnny Cupcake design idea ?
