4-toed Roundup 123

This blog post is just to finish off the information from last night.

To start with very large thanks to ReverendMilo for all the reports and pictures from last night, it was much appreciated. As I said in the comments, having someone go to the event and report back in almost real time makes these sort of events come alive.

RevMilo also got himself some swag (some he took with him in costume)

Next the Hub page has been updated with quite a few pictures, some posted before by @PacesOilChange but there is also a video :





We have reports from Dragon Management that his order number was #778 for the Statue poster, this is the lowest reported so far, and ReverendMilo has told us that his order was #815.#

Update we have had an email to say someone has an order number of 776 for this poster

Ok here's my plan. If for some strange reason this hasn't sold out by the end of this, and depending on what I may have bought in the mean time, I'm going to come back and buy this one.

But if it is sold out then that's hte way it goes. I have limited funds and have to be patient. NOT my strong suit. lol It's soooo tempting. :)

Zort70 said...

I know what you mean Sayidsgirl, I'm so tempted just to buy everyone, but I promised myself I'd only buy the ones that immediately impressed me, but at the end I might go for another.

By the way if there are any comments, good or bad, on the small changes to the blog header then I'd appreciate them.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I personally like what you've done.
It gives a direct link to a topic you are looking for and it cuts down on the searching. Good job!

slashfilm's article

Zort70 it just gets better and better. Just you are up for the chaos that will be happening in the next 4 months. please let us know if you want any help and any way.

Jason Munn website is cool. I sent e-mail thnks fr th mmrs. And I am loving that FOB song title and track. very apropo.

? Is ReverendMilo wearing the failsafe key?

TomRex said...

I had the worst luck last night. It was very much Widmore aka Comcast working against me. About 10 minutes before the print was available for sale, my internet went out because Comcast was working on the lines.

After a while of trying to make it work and look for neighbors with a working wi-fi, I ended up ordering from my phone. This print will be perfect the room I want it in as light will change quite a bit. Should be great!

Amy Lynn said...

Sayid's girl, I'm with you. I like this one a lot, but my funds (and wall space) are going to limit me to one or two TOPS. With ten more to go, I'm holding out. Sigh!

Zort70 said...

Someone on Darks site says they have order #891 so this must have sold over 110 copies

Capcom said...

Great work Zort, and Rev, and everyone else keeping up last night!

One suggestion....this post should have been titled "No-toed Roundup", heheh. Seriously, isn't the watercooler moment of the statue, the 4 toes?! Sayid's comment says it all. I just don't understand why they couldn't be on the poster. I'm just sayin'. Oh well, that part made me able to not like it enough to not be sorry that I can't afford to purchase it, so there's my silver lining. :-B

Get some good sleep tonight Zort. :o)

ReverendMilo said...

Hiya all,

wish I could have done a better job of reporting last night. The iphone 3.1 update the other day messed my phone up to where if I use 3g internet, and then get a text, I loose 3g until I hard reset the phone.

The show was great, traffic and parking turned a normal 30 minute ride into a 2 hour nightmare so I got in the gate just after FOB went on stage.

I went all around the amphitheater for a bit during the show, checking with vendors, security, and everything else. But I think missing the meet and greet pretty much blew it.

the swag is just blink 182 stickers and keychain LED light. The failsafe key is part of one of my costumes. Security looked at me like I was nutters, which I always enjoy, but I don't think anyone involved with the show ever noticed us.

All in all decent show that I only heard much of because I was wandering around looking for the damn pink sign and being generally a spectacle to teens.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I think you did a great job Rev all things considered. Thanks for being there for us.

Zort70 said...

Rev, was the swag given or did you have to buy it ?

ReverendMilo said...

additionally - @idiotique:

in case you missed this early, I figured out:

youeverhearaboutoceanic815

and frank had to be in lower case too.

and it looks like it predicted huckfinnwastaken days ago?

Capcom said...

You did great as roving reporter, Rev!

Zort70 said...

Yes - second that it was great to have someone on the inside.

Zort70 said...

We can present you with the Rachel Blake award for reporting.

maven said...

You were definitely our eyes and ears, ReverendMilo! You did a great job, even with iPhone difficulties!

I, too, have very limited wall space...but I'm going to find somewhere in my quilt room to put up "Crash" (even if I have to take down a wall-hanging...lol)! So I'm only getting the posters that grab me right away and I don't have to think about!

As usual, Zort, you're doing a great job with all round-ups, updates, new headers, etc. Hope you'll be able to run TLC when season 6 starts!

Amy Lynn said...

TLC?

Sayid'sgirl said...

Amy
TLC The Lost Community
It's our Lost blog where we discuss the episodes.

Amy Lynn said...

Thanks.

Sayid'sgirl said...

You're welcome.
When season 6 starts be sure to come by and discuss it with us.

Zort70 said...

The problem with me doing things on TLC is that the episodes air in the UK a few days after they do in the US so I'm always behind the times.

I'm happy to help out in other ways though if needed.

Scoutpost said...

Ditto on all the thanks ReverendMilo. Great job!!

I'm also trying to pace myself with these posters. So far so good, but there's still a bunch to go!

Ended up sending a question to abc.com store re: my LU t-shirt. Haven't heard back yet. My luck, all those "orders" really went through and I'll end up with 20 t-shirts!

Capcom said...

Melissa did the TLC posts for the eps last season, hopefully she can again for S6. Or, we can round up some of us bloggers to take turns with her? We usually just post a released screencap and a brief comment the day of the ep, Zort, nothing detailed cuz no spoilers allowed of course.

:-)

Capcom said...

OMG, Scoutpost, I thought of that last night. Get ready to call your credit card office to cancel 19 orders, heheh.

maven said...

I'm not sure who's listed as Admin. over at TLC. I know Dennis has left us and if into his Fringe blog (which is great). Melissa_Lossa did a great job, too!

Scoutpost: Keep checking your credit card statements!

Zort70 said...

David, Dennis and Mellisa are the admins at the moment.

maven said...

Zort: That basically leaves ML all alone! She should have some back-up!

Zort70 said...

I'm happy to do it, someone just needs to make me an admin.

Zort70 said...

Reverend, just tweeted that there is another video of last night on PeteWentz's website.

Link

Not much more than we have already seen.

Nachosaur said...

youeverhearaboutoceanic815

What is that?

ReverendMilo said...

Idiotique has been trying to figure out the clues to get in impatientashell.com

Scoutpost said...

Ok this is a bit unrelated, but on the LU forum, where you can join the fraternities...someone in DocArtz' fraternity posted:

"Drink together, throw up alone"


LOL- just thought I'd share.

Amy Lynn said...

brilliant.

Zort70 said...

I want that on a T-Shirt

Capcom said...

Boy, ain't that the truth!!! Erm, not that I'd know. Anymore. :->

Sayid'sgirl said...

OT
Lost is everywhere.
I'm watching Flash Forward and in the first few minutes you see a Oceanic billboard on the side of a building. :)

knightsintodreams said...

http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e8/picklemepretty/LOSTimg.jpg


i watched the LU countadown the other day, and when the clock flipped back, the numbers turned into hyroglyphics like in the hatch, then all these letters appeared pont he screen.
i tried to remember it all, then quickly made a thread asking if anyone was able to get a screen cap of it. huge high five to us losties, cuz someone did~!!! woot!! think it means anything?? probably not, but just in case :3 sorry if this has been addressed before...

Congested said...

Yeah it looked cool. There's a video of it up on darkufo.blogspot.com's main page.... Though I'm not sure that it's been mentioned here.

maven said...

I think it was Sayid'sgirl that posted a link to the LU countdown clock on another post here.

OT: FlashForward was great. Shows a lot of potential!

Amy Lynn said...

I liked FlashForward, too! The opening sequence was very Lost-esque.

Zort70 said...

Flash Forward is on in the UK on Monday.

Also I need to say we have had someone contact the admins to say that they had order #776 for the new poster.

Sorry Dragon Management, looks like you might not get a special prize this time

Sayid'sgirl said...

maven
Yes. That was me. Zort posted a link to the lostpedia forum where someone had posted screen caps of it before me though.

Thanks knightsintodreams for bringing that up here. The posts have been fast and furious lately and some people may have missed the previous posts. Love your screen name btw.

OT I really liked flashforward too.
Sorry about the post I made last night zort. I didn't think about it being on later for you. I'll be quite until after Monday from now on if I have an urge to make an OT post again.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Oh btw I did look up the meanings of the hieroglyphs at lostpedia.

But since I have no idea how to read them my best guess on what they mean based on some of the meanings of the symbols would be they're welcoming/summoning us to school. ??lol??
I'm probably way off the mark on that though.

Has anyone found a translation yet? I haven't looked around to find out yet.

Zort70 said...

Sayid'sgirl, no need to apologies, an Oceanic bilboard is definitely on topic :-)

Zort70 said...

The most I've been able to find out about the LU countdown clock symbols is part of it is "summon".

Sayid'sgirl said...

The third symbol can mean book,writing or abstract idea.
But all the pictures I've seen of it is horizontal not vertical.

The fourth symbol can mean to or for someone, he, our us. Along with other meanings.

Combining that with the summons symbol I guessed Welcome to our school. Or Come to our school.

I don't know something along those lines. lol
Like I said I'm sure I'm way off the mark there.

Zort70 said...

I think we are going to have to wait for Damon, Carlton and JJ's book explaining all the hidden easter egss and codes.

Mind you that could be a very large book.

Zort70 said...

egss are really special hidden items, eggs are the normal ones.

Sayid'sgirl said...

lol I knew that. ;)

Zort70 said...

I've created a main blog post with the screenshot and details of the video, no comments so we can stay in this post for now.

Amy Lynn said...

Anyone wanna place a bet on when we start up again?

Zort70 said...

I'm guessing either Sunday evening or Monday.

Amy Lynn said...

My guess is tomorrow. They've never gone more than 2 days without re-starting.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I'm thinking maybe tonight or tomorrow.

I just spilled tea in my wireless keyboard. Thank goodness I kept my plug in one from my old computer.
I knew it would come in handy. lol

Hopefully it will work again after it dries out. It typed a couple of letters then quit.

Should we ask DCaaPB to split the hub page into new clues and old ones, as the current hub page s getting very large.

Anonymous said...

FYI, for anybody still anxiously awaiting their Crash poster -- don't worry, they're still trickling in. Got mine yesterday. #258 -- Kyle

ReverendMilo said...

@zort twitter prayer made.

Capcom said...

You mean a large book like the one in this image Zort?

:o)

Zort70 said...

That's the one Capcom ;-)

Zort70 said...

Thanks Rev, it is much needed.

ReverendMilo said...

reading the big book of Darlton?

Capcom said...

LOL!

knightsintodreams said...

a lost encyclopedia, i would pass that on as a mysterious heirloom....
and it could be locked, with the pass code being the numbers X3
that'd be worth like $60 to me~

Capcom said...

Yes, I will be very disappointed if TPTB don't write some kind of tome on the making of Lost, how they worked on it, their intentions for mysteries and answers, etc. Taschen is a good international publication company that makes huge art books for relatively affordable prices considering the size and graphics. They could do it!

I wouldn't doubt that they'll all be eager to move on after it's all over though, but they could start on the book NOW and be finished by the time the series is over. :-D

Nachosaur said...

Darlton oughta write a giant book giving out the backstory of all those characters that never got one. That'd be interesting.

Nachosaur said...

As to when they start up again, I think tonight. It better be before 10, though.

Congested said...

Hey all... small little note about LU.

"CarltonCuse" had posted on the forums saying that they were looking into the issue of people not having BluRay players...

It turns out that was not actually Carlton.

The thread (now locked) is here. An admin has posted saying that no one should post pretending to be "faculty" or Lost producers.

Zort70 said...

and they sounded so genuine.

Congested said...

Yeah, I really thought it was them. :/

maven said...

Well, that's a disappointment. :(

Nachosaur said...

Real downer. Wonder if the accounts are shut down?

Congested said...

I'm guessing they are. Neither the "DLindlof_ABC" account, nor the "CarltonCuse" account has posted since the thread was closed.

RobPerrin said...

'The Crash' 162/300 arrived at my Canadian doorstep today. Looks very fine.

Zort70 said...

Gladto see they are still arriving Rob, as mine is still eagerly awaited in the UK.

Zort70 said...

No new clue overnight then

Zort70 said...

I've just been reading some other forums and they have pointed out that the highlighted leg / foot on the poster is the wrong side.

In the show it is the left one that remains, not the right.

Zort70 said...

Just realised the INSIDE THE ROCK POSTER FRAME said that a couple of days ago in the previous post !

Nachosaur said...

This wait bugging anybody?

Amy Lynn said...

In a way, yes, but if we're going to get something as vague and misleading as that silver star, well, no :D

ReverendMilo said...

but you have to even get annoyingly vague clue 1 to start at all.... so bring it.

(I briefly had Tyson hypnotized and may have turned him more evil than when we started. retweet my prayers as I try to bring him back from the MIB with our faith.)

maven said...

RevMilo: ? You tweeted that Tyson was the poster 7 clue?

Scoutpost said...

just checking in :) I like those BIG books of LOST...haha.

too bad about the LU threads being false. Some people just can't resist.

Have a great Saturday everybody!

Zort70 said...

I think Rev is being hopeful

Zort70 said...

The power of positive thinking.

Lets all think together.

roxanna said...

new clue... Vincent?

these are strange clues

Amy Lynn said...

Could be some kind of pet store, or someone named Vincent?

roxanna said...

good idea, Amy. I wonder if there are any towns in the states named Vincent.

Amy Lynn said...

There are plenty that I can see just by Googling, also lots of St. Vincents.

Anonymous said...

Is there any dog events on the horizon?..Westminster? Is Slobber Tongue a name of a band or anything?..Howabout Golden Retrievers...Time to go GooglE!!!...mel

Amy Lynn said...

Westminster is in February, I believe.

Capcom said...

Yes, that bugged me too Zort, that it is actually the wrong foot on the poster. Meh, I guess that one could site artistic liberty, but as an artist I say it would not be too difficult to get it right...and, to put the four toes in it.

maven said...

Yea...a clue! Vincent would be an awesome poster! But there's nothing much to go on here...yet!

Anonymous said...

Vincent Black Shadow is a Band....named after the motorcycle...I shall pursue..mel

Amy Lynn said...

Maybe some sort of Vincent Van Gogh exhibit?

ReverendMilo said...

tyson is sometimes a few minutes behind me.

:)

maven said...

There's a town of Vincent in Perth, Australia....maybe something for our Aussie Losties!

ReverendMilo said...

I am willing to lay money down that is it actually this Vincent we need to look for

Capcom said...

Heheh, does anyone remember Retrievers Of Truth? X-D

maven said...

Oh, yeah, Capcom! Everything one can know about Golden Retrievers! LOL

ReverendMilo said...

I miss DJ Dan, and admittedly had a little crush on Rachel...

Anonymous said...

okay..two Musical leads...made the song "1952 Black Vincent " into popularity...

Richard Thompson..will be at Nottinham MA(?) on Oct 6

and the Del McCoury (bluegrass) will be at Chico Calif. on Oct 6..

thats what I got for now..MEL

Anonymous said...

I wonder if Bob Dylan is a LOST fan? He'll be in the Seattle, Portland area of his tour from the 4th thru the 8th...Why Dylan?...If Dogs Run Free, Why Not We?...of course....MEL

ReverendMilo said...

Am I the only one that thinks that Vincent is kinda squatting and "concentrating" in that clue picture?

I am going to examine various neighborhood dog poo and try to discern an pattern or connection between dog poo and Vincent Barbarino.

Gotta take these leaps of faith when all you got is "clue 1"

Nachosaur said...

You all do that. I'm going to church.

Nachosaur said...

There's a mobster called Vincent Mad Dog Coll. He's Irish.

Capcom said...

There's a Scientology joke in there somewhere ReverandMilo, but I'm not touching it.

:-o

ReverendMilo said...

..aaahhh..Travolta is in the middle of an extortion trial rite now..( there was an attempted extortion on him and family)...soooo..I really don't think the abc promo dept would be at the court house..but you never kno!...mel

Scoutpost said...

LOL RevMilo and Capcom re: Vinnie Barbarino and Retrievers of Truth! But of course what else are we to do when that's all we got?


Off topic..just wanna say Roll Tide!

Deneph said...

New clue up! A picture of Vincent in the jungle.

Now get this...there is actually a " ring tone" available for your cell fone...that is called..." Dog Poop Jungle Heat...".....VINNNNNIE!!!!......mel

then there is the Univ of Wisc at MADISON ( vinnies real name)...lots of events going on there,,and I suppose they have a bookstore....mel

LotteryTicket said...

Yikes. Did you say MADISON, WI. That's me. My wish coming true?

"Love Triangle" just arrived at the door. IT"S 108! I'm feeling super lucky today! No curse.

Let me look around Madison for Vincent clues.

Amy Lynn said...

My dad lives in Madison, too, but I don't think I could convince him to go ANYWHERE. LOL.

Still, maybe it'll be Culver's :)

LotteryTicket said...

http://www.tvacres.com/dogs_retrievers_vincent.htm

Amy Lynn. I am in Madison. If it the clue comes this way, we are going to have some fun here! Lots of LOST fans. Maybe we can get your dad to join with a little "Jacobian" push.

I'll start looking a Tues/Wednesday events here. The Capitol Building and University of Wisconsin are connected via State Street, a pedestrian friendly avenue with shopping and dinning.

Amy Lynn said...

Lottery Ticket, I'd say I hope it involves the Farmer's Market, but next Saturday is too far away.

Zort70 said...

Just got back from watching Fame at the cinema.

New post coming up

Dragon Management said...

Order #776! BAH! You got to be kidding me!

Fast fingers, indeed.

Tim said...

Dragon, maybe the #776 claim wasn't true and you will still be receiving some prize? Hope so, good luck!

Dragon Management said...

Got 4-toed poster today...and yes, it looks like I was 3rd. Got 103/300. Someone else is getting a sweet 101/300 prize...

Good job to whoever got it! Send us pictures of your...new guitar?
