Paul is threatened to a meeting with Ronie 68

Paul has had a visit from a man in black, who has a conversation with him about the paintings. The conversation sounds very familiar to anyone who saw the last episode of season 5.




“It’s always the same with you Lost fans, you watch, you theorize, you blog, you paint, but it always ends the same, you want more.”

(There was a long pause.)

Then he affixed a steely gaze on me “Do you have any idea how badly I want to kill you?”

“What?! No. I didn’t think it was that bad…Really? Kill me?” I was shocked.

“Yes but I can’t find a loophole. Your friends, your blogger buddies, and the all the rest of the fans are supporting this dumb velvet painting idea. It’s impossible to stop you. So I come to you with an offer. I’d like you meet Ronie Midfew. He wants to talk to you. No recording devices of any kind. He wants you to know exactly what he thinks of you.”




The man in black dropped the business card on the ground and walked off. As he walked away, he exclaimed, “Always nice speaking to you Mr. Scheer.”



Paul then asks us for questions we can ask Ronie at the meeting.


Update 14 Aug 14:00(EST) - New post by Paul

The coordinates are plugged into my GPS and I have all your comments printed
out. So I’m ready and on my way.

I hope they don’t hook me up to that weird Clockwork Orange machine that they
hooked Ben’s Daughter’s Boyfriend up to.

I will post later tonight (cuz I have to pick up some dry cleaning on the way home) and let you know what went down. But if you don’t hear from me by Saturday morning assume that I was taken on a submarine to an unknown location.





Update 14 August 20:20(EST)

In a new post by Paul he says that his meeting with Ronie Midfew went well and the publishing of the art will still go ahead as planned.

Paul says contracts are going to be signed and that everything is going to be great, even better than could be expected.

Thanks to Maven for letting us know about the new post

First! At least they're doing something everyday on this blog!

Zort70 said...

My slightly over the top comment on the post is -

Speaking as a blogging Lost fan, we must unite to protect our rights.

Ask Ronie if he is going to take his crusade against Lost fans to all the blog sites, and if he says yes then we will all stand firm, fight him on the beaches and never surrender.

Zort70 said...

Yes Maven I wonder how long they will keep this level of interaction up.

maven said...

I'm also getting vibes that this is sort of a "spoof" of all Lost fans and Lost bloggers, and can also be a tribute to us! TPTB know how involved we get in these things and will unite the various Lost Communities to support Paul.

Zort70 said...

I feel closer to other blog sites already.

I also feel very tired as it's approaching midnight here, so goodnight for now.

MadAriad said...

This is cool! I wonder if Paul will go missing and we'll have to find him....

E. Sau! lol!

Ellen said...

email, again! :D
xxoo

Capcom said...

Yeah! We're with ya, Churchill! I mean, Zort. :o)

maven said...

This is a comment I just posted at DC&PB: "Hey, Paul…I’m the lady that made the Lost quilt that was on the ABC Comic Con podcast. So your fight for the right to make your velvet paintings is my fight, too! (Although, my quilt is for my personal use only and is not for sale.) Fan should have the right to express themselves and their love for the show! Be careful tomorrow…we all support your efforts."

Lost quilt blog

I wanted to stress that I'm not making money on the quilt...don't want to get in trouble, too! LOL

Zort70 said...

Maven look out for the man in black.

Zort70 said...

The other thing that intrigues me is why 4:08pm, why not 4:00pm or 4:10 ?

Melissa_Lossa said...

Because 10 is not one of the numbers, silly. :)

LotteryTicket said...

The man in black dropped the business card on the ground and walked off. As he walked away, he exclaimed, “Always nice speaking to you Mr. Scheer.”

Have they spoken before? Seems Mr. E. Sau and Mr. Scheer have had previous conversations.

Zort70 said...

Melissa - Doh !

Lottery Ticket, that is the question that may be defining the final season of Lost, i.e. timeloops or alternate realities where some people have met before.

MadAriad said...

And it's also what the MIB says to Jacob in the scene - "Always nice talking to you Jacob" - as he's leaving.

maven said...

Zort: Great response to dr. mum about using Paul's work in our masthead! lol

Yes, Ronie Midfew must be a very busy man to schedule appointments to the minute....4:08....lol
(and I know they're Lost numbers!)

Zort70 said...

I'm missing all the obvious things today !

Zort70 said...

Thanks Maven, I thought I had to say something.

There is some more good news for us all David and the Goog are beavering away on a new shiny podcast for us. It should be ready after the weekend.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Oh cool. A new podcast. I've been thinking about those guys. Can't wait to see what they have to say.

maven said...

Cool...a new podcast. Thanks David and the Goog!

JamesLeon said...

If think of it, 4 out of six Numbers have been used. That guy wants a meeting at 4:08 p.m., and ih the site there's the "15 will be lost, the 16th will be found". So, that leaves us with 23 and 42, which haven't yet been used!

maven said...

JamesLeon: And remember the total of the numbers has been used...the release of his video at 1:08.

Zort70 said...

I've been working on a timeline of events from the first post at DCaaPB and the post numbers of the individual posts seema bit random, i.e. they don't go 1,2,3,4....

There is a post number 23 (MR Eko's Walking Stick) and then immediately after a post numbered 42 (Interview with the man in black).

There aren't any more with numbers we might recognise, so I think it's just coincidence.

Zort70 said...

New post by Paul, I've updated the main blog page.

He's already on his way to a meeting at 4:08.
It takes 3 1/2 hours to get there?

Wow I'm glad I don't live in a big city.

Ben DeRoy said...

Hmmm... has this possibility occured to anyone:

E. Sau = E. S.hephard-Au.sten

I think Esau as a name in itself could be a red herring. E. could stand for Edward, Edmund, Ethan, Elijah, Elliott, Emmanuel or Ewan for instance. "Sau" could come from S.hephard-Au.sten, making "E. Sau" an acronym. Maybe somehow, Mr. X is the future (or future past) son of Jack and Kate (and Jacob the son of Sawyer and Juliet as well?). They did after all have sex before their fateful flight with Ajira.

Takes a Village said...

Zort,
Speaking of Mr.Eko;The actor that played him, will be on Monk tonight.
(USA,9 EST.)
Have a great weekend Lost bloggers.

scoutpost said...

Thanks for the well wishes everyone. I think I'm finally starting to feel better, even though my head is still stuffed up and I feel like I'm in a fog.

I've followed along enough to be excited to see what happens tonight when Paul gets back from his meeting...assuming he returns...I kind of have a bad feeling about this. LOL

maven said...

We don't expect to hear anything at 4:08 (6 min. from now), do we?

maven said...

Apparantly, the "real" Paul Scheer is busy in NYC this weekend. Hope he figures out how to be in 2 places at once! LOL

Glad you're feeling better, Scoutpost.

Zort70 said...

Nothing has happened yet

Capcom said...

Good thoughts everyone! Yeah, maybe there are two Paul Scheers, a good and bad twin. :-D

I just saw The Time Traveler's Wife and highly recommend it. It's very different and has a nice feel to it.

Zort70 said...

I'm off to bed now, if anything happens be sure to take screen shots just in case !

Sayid'sgirl said...

New Post at DC&PB

maven said...

Dang it! I didn't want things to go so awesome! LOL There doesn't seem to be any conflict or mystery today at Ronie Midfew Arts!

Sayid'sgirl said...

I know evidently Roni must think Paul is awesome. lol

scoutpost said...

I'm a little bummed too! I was kind of secretly hoping they would try to kidnap him or something! So I wonder what in the world could be so awesome...has he sold out? And I think it's still up for debate whether his art is going to be displayed tonight or tomorrow night. We need something exciting to happen!

MadAriad said...

Something weird is going on... First they are his enemies and then he meets with them and he's excited about how AWESOME it's gonna be? Something's up. I can't wait to find out what!

Zort70 said...

I've updated the main post with the information on the new post.

I am also quite shocked that Paul did not get carted off by Ronie Midfew.

I'd even created a missing poster for him just in case he was kidnapped.

Ah well hopefully mre information today. I'm at a Cricket match all day so won't get online again until late today (UK time).

Let me know if there are any developments.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I noticed Paul's blog comments are back on central time again.

I wonder why he keeps switching it back and forth?

maven said...

Okay...who's staying up for the reveal of more velvet paintings at midnight pst? I know it's 3am for most of you guys. I'm going to try.

Capcom said...

Maybe the original Paul has been replaced by a replicant, heheh. Otherwise, maybe he's just another sold-out artist.

:o)

BarbaraJay said...

If I'm not mistaken, August 15 at midnight has come and gone. Where's Paul? Where's the black velvet art? Who posted that "awesome" message on his blog? A mystery is afoot!

maven said...

BarbaraJay: I think the consensus us that midnight on the 15/16th is the release time. Remember, the "real" Paul went to NYC yesterday to be in the Improv Marathon. I guess he's on his way back today and will get everything ready and post tonight at midnight. Hopefully, there is not a Fake Paul (Faul?).

BarbaraJay said...

"But if you don’t hear from me by Saturday morning assume that I was taken on a submarine to an unknown location."
Paul, DamonCarltonandaPolarBear.com

I still think Paul is missing or as it says on the Ronie Midfew website, "15 Will be lost The 16th Will be found."

I hope he's found...alive.

I am requesting a bit of information. I posted in the Great News comments,,a post that includes links to 8 post card photos I did back between season 4 and season 5...Since Paul is encouraging Lost Fan Art,,i decided to see what would happen with some of my creations that were deleted at abc.com soon after posting them.. After clicking the " submit " button, the post was visible in the comments,,but above it was a message in Italics..Waiting for administrators approval of your post..please be patient..This post is around the 42nd or 43rd comment..I see it..does any body else?..Of course I am taking this fantasy of Pauls into the real, by posting some of my own creations and seeing what happens. I think it is the gist of this whole ARG..Kind regards...MEL

maven said...

Happy 815 Day to all Lost fans!

thin said...

Happy DCCCXV !

The real Paul just tweeted that he saw District 9 last night. At least he's okay.

maven said...

New post at DC&PB! Too long to explain...but Paul has joined forces with Ronie Midfew AND DARLTON to promote something big! It seems the velvet paintings are a thing of the past and something new is brewing. He says he won't be posting for a while...but he ends with HAPPY HUNTING and something still will happen tonight at midnight!

maven said...

There is also a new post at Ronie Midfew Arts about the collaboration with Paul.

maven said...

Paul ends his post with LET THE HUNT BEGIN! Hope it's not for more glyphs! lol

This is taking a strange turn of events. But Darlton seems heavily involved in it, which would be a good sign for me!

Capcom said...

Wonder what he "did" with the dayglo paintings, if the painting issue is over? I'd guess that they were just imaginary paintings. :o)

thin said...

Is that Stephen King or JJ Abrams with his back to the iPhone?

Pic is reminiscent of the one on the wall with Cuse, Lindelof and Abrams meeting King for the Dark Tower agreement.

Scoutpost said...

Let the hunt begin? The hunt for WHAT?! Wonder if we're going to have to hunt for LOST inspired art somewhere...in real life? on the internet? hmmmm this is getting weird ;)

thin said...

I started a portrait of Ezra James Sharkinton, almost threw it away, but am so glad now I kept it. I made it with colored ...

maca-ro-knee :P

maven said...

I'm set with my Lost art: My QUILT! :)

Sayid'sgirl said...

Maven That's the first thing I thought was Glyph Hunt! NOOO!! lol

Scoutpost That's a great idea hunting for Lost art.

I wish they'd do this at 9:00pst even 10:00pst would be ok instead of midnight. Oh well. It's DJ Dan all over again. ;)lol

BTW Someone noticed there's a 15 on the table behind them right above their hands. Wonder if that means anything?

Sayid'sgirl said...

Oh I guess it's just a seat from Dodger Stadium they sold when they renovataed the ball park.

I guess I should have read all the posts first. oops :)

Sayid'sgirl said...

Sorry guys for the multiple posts. I just got home and I'm catching up.

Our newly formed team worked together to create what is sure to be and unforgetable 2nd half of 2009.
This sounds like it's going to last until Season 6 starts.

A LOST celebration of art fit for a final season

Was I right in thinking this could be art from season 6 (oonly not in velvet)? I can't believe they'd really do that though.

This is very interesting. Is it midnight yet? Or maybe I should say 3 am.

maven said...

Sayid'sgirl: That's alright...I was here for a while just talking to myself!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hey do you think we might get some Jack Bender art?

maven said...

Cool! I wonder if they commissioned some special stuff for us Lost fans and once they're found we can all order them if we want!

Zort70 said...

NEW (long) POST

Sayid'sgirl said...

I like that idea!
