The toys look like dog toys, are we looking for a pet store ?

waffle said...

They're definitely dog toys. My dog has that frog and that buckyball looking thing. So a pet store in Madison, WI seems like a good idea.

thin said...

Looking through pictures of dog toys, and wondering what Vincent might say if he could talk, I stumbled upon this picture.

Nice set of canines :)

Amy Lynn said...

Yup. Pet store would be a good guess here. Maybe some kind of adoption event?

LotteryTicket said...

still looking. no dog events. no pet store showing this particular group of toys.

Nachosaur said...

It's a pet store.

Ellen said...

You guys are great! Flyin' by for email!...:)
xxoo

JPL said...

Searching web and how ironic if this event was taking place later this week:

:)

Nachosaur said...

Nice, but I don't see how bunnies fit with the current clues (Vincent, toys).

Zort70 said...

There is a madison pet store in New Jersey

Amy Lynn said...

There's a town called Madison, NJ. Is that what you're talking about?

Zort70 said...

Yes, it also has a pet store called Madison Pet Store

JPL said...

Ironic since the bunny event is taking place at a Madison Humane Pet Adoption Center. Know that clues & locations have not foreshadowed what the actual poster is, but do you think we'll ever see Rabbit #8 or anything related? :)

Zort70 said...

JPL I hope we see a Ben poster with a rabbit on it somewhere.

JPL said...

Ben & a rabbit

Zort70 said...

The artist Daniel Hertzberg has done some work in Madison WI

Zort70 said...

That's me donbe for tonight, keep searching.

JPL said...

Daniel's work is very cool! Could see this style working very nicely.

LotteryTicket said...

I located images of some of these stuffed toys though none are directly associated with Madison. I can call around tomorrow to see who carries.

Here is link to ProperPet. com

http://www.properpet.com/dog/dog-toys/plush-dog-toys.html?manufacturer=41

Can see what is written on the black object?

roxanna said...

I think the black object is a toy in the shape of a motor oil bottle, but I'm not sure what it says.

Nachosaur said...

I think it has the DHARMA logo on it.

LotteryTicket said...

Any suggestions welcome. Most stores will not open until 10 a.m. CST.

ReverendMilo said...

are those "Dollies" with "Madison" like Dolly Madison First Lady of President James Madison and inspiration for tasty snackcakes that come out of Baton Rouge?

Anonymous said...

an interesting link,,another artist in Madison..Jeff Stern

1Miletogo said...

How about the pet store - Birds & Pets Garden in West Covina, CA. It is on 110 Vincent Ave - close to the intersection of Workman Ave & Vincent Ave..

Capcom said...

Workman...Vincent...I'm thinking a poster with a decayed arm on it. j/k

:o)

Cheif Brody said...

1Miletogo...that sounds very interesting...Perhaps the next clue will be a pic of Roger Linus in his "Workman" Dharma jumpsuit?

That would certainly pinpoint the address...but I still have a feeling they will steer clear of another event in either NY or CA...You would think they would want to spread these events out across the country a bit more.

Zort70 said...

I just found this blog, by a man called Vincent Madison, who's profile says he is the Director of Oceanic Airlines.

Djinn said...

Does this debunk? Or mis-direct?:

From http://vincentmadison.com/faq.htm:

3. Is this site connected to LOST?

Yes and No. Originally Vincent Madison created and ran Alternate Reality Games based on LOST, however they were all fan-based creations, created by Aralai Productions, which has no affiliation with ABC, LOST, Touchstone Pictures or Bad Robot. There may be references and shout-outs to LOST in Vincent's novels, but there will also be references and shout-outs to many TV shows and fictional characters you may be familiar with.


Just another in a series of coincidences?

Zort70 said...

Seems like the Vincent is Madison link has been made before.

kristaps194 said...

This reminds me toy shop where Jin bought those pandas.

I found that link last night too. That's definitely the same logo/tag on the frog as in the clue.
But I thought it was just an online store. I couldn't find any links to real stores.
Where are they located?

ReverendMilo said...

"Vincent Madison" put on a unofficial fan created ARG a couple of years ago. He did an awesome job.

Can you guess who found physical clue 1 placed in the international terminal at DFW?

Zort70 said...

I'm guessing it was someone that we know :-)

ReverendMilo said...

poster 5 shots here

LotteryTicket said...

Morning all. Tks for .jpgs Rev. Any more thoughts before I start make those phone calls?

TLC said...

Vincent Madison, I remember his podcast from a few years back! He had this very strange voice..

ReverendMilo said...

Lottery_Ticket, only thought is although Dolley Madison does make cakes and we have seen a theme...those are dog toys, not dollies.

So I am still pulling for your neighborhood.

have to take the toddler to the doctor, I'll send a clue twitter prayer while in the waiting room.

Zort70 said...

Great quality pics as always

ReverendMilo said...

use at will zort!

ReverendMilo said...

and I have to say, having poster 5 in hand you really start to appeciate it more. I was on the fence, but it is a beautiful print in person.

LotteryTicket said...

Rev, any and all prayers welcome. Bit of a Doubting Thomas this morning.

Did I mention that I have #108 for Love Triangle? A consolation prize.

ReverendMilo said...

congrats on 108!!!

Zort70 said...

Well done for number 108, send a picture of the sig as I'm collecting the 108's

ReverendMilo said...

har to believe but postman just handed me poster 6. I'll get pics up after toddler takes a nap

Zort70 said...

I haven't even got poster 4 yet.

ReverendMilo said...

I think Tyson decide to preprint labels for me to save himself the headache.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Does anyone know who was the first to order poster number 6 and if they have gotten it yet?

There's usually a clue in the congratulations letter.

JPL said...

Poster 6 (#121) just arrived. They're turning around delivery pretty quick. Funny thing is that my card hasn't been charged yet. Same thing happened with poster #4 - delay in charging.

The gold paint used is very cool and the black gloss is exactly as described. Will try to get some photos.

LotteryTicket said...

If you have a poster and would like to add to DarkUFO's registry, here's the link:

http://tinyurl.com/y9c5vrb

Zort70 said...

There is someone who may have the first poster number 6, but they have said they want to remain anonymous.

No word on a prize or letter yet though.

Zort70 said...

JPL - much appreciated, sounds like it might be a hard job though as photographing gloss is always quite tricky.

LotteryTicket said...

Link to ABC's official photo for Vincent and caption:

http://abc.go.com/shows/lost/photos/224568/210560

LOST - "Tricia Tanaka Is Dead" - Hurley's discovery of an old, wrecked car on the island leads him on a mission of hope not only for himself, but for a fellow survivor in need of some faith. Meanwhile, Kate and Sawyer reunite with their fellow castaways, but Kate is still torn about leaving Jack behind with "The Others," on "Lost," WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28 (10:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/MARIO PEREZ) MADISON THE DOG

Continuing through photos and found this:

LOST - "Expos" - Hurley begins to suspect that Sawyer may be involved in an island mystery surrounding two fellow survivors, and Sun learns the truth about her past kidnapping attempt by "The Others," on "Lost," WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/MARIO PEREZ) MADISON THE DOG

Really? A typo in the episode name? Should we give them that EXTRA e from Banana Split Sundae announcement? lol

PetsMart has the green frog chew toy.

Nachosaur said...

They couldn't type the e thingy. That's a known error. It's on Lostpedia.

Avondale Blog said...

Found the toy photo:

http://www.rustysdiscountpets.com/treats.htm

Amy Lynn said...

Wow, good research. I'll be disappointed if that's the place though, because hey, um, there's a whole middle of the country that isn't East Coast or LA/SW.

LotteryTicket said...

Avondale Blog: Oh, thank you for finding this!

Original file name: images/treats/dog_toys.jpg

Rusty's Discount Pet Center
SINCE 1988
11672 Ventura Blvd. Studio City, CA 91604

Funny, 'cause their website header says 1987 on the dog tag.

Avondale Blog said...

Thanks folks. I've been searching off and on for hours. Gave up on pet stores in Madison or Vincent.

I found the photo itself by looking on Picsearch

http://www.picsearch.com/

with the topic "pet toys"

It was on page 11:

1Miletogo said...

Great job Avondale - there is also a Vincent V who left feedback about Rusty's

Feedback from Vincent V

LotteryTicket said...

Vincent, Madison, toys, Rusty's, Ventura

is that about it?

Avondale Blog said...

Thanks again 1Miletogo. We seem to be following the same blogs.

Hope we get another clue soon.

Zort70 said...

That about sums up what we have so far.

Zort70 said...

Avondale Blog - good find, I'm going to update the main blog page.

Avondale Blog said...

Thanks Zort70. I hope it proves to be useful and not just a red herring.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Great job Avondale Blog!!
I searched pet toys with google images but got lazy and quit after about 5-6 pages.
picsearch.com I'll have to remember that for the next clues. :) Of course I'll just give up to soon again. lol

maven said...

Great work, Avondale Blog! Studio City is about 15 minutes from me. If it's happening there, I'M there!

Avondale Blog said...

Thanks, Sayid'sgirl and maven!

Sayid'sgirl said...

So far we have had 2 water cooler moments from Season 1. The Crash and The Numbers. One from Season 2 or 5 depending on how you "look" at it The 4 toed Statue. Three from Season 3 The Dharma Van, Locke' Secret and The Love Triangle.

Which season do you think the next one wil be from? Season 4 or 5? Or another one from season 1 or 2?

Amy Lynn said...

As long as it's good, I don't care what season it's from. No mistakes in the poster, like the last few!

Anthony said...

Am I the only one that think they look like carnival prizes, and hence it is a clue to 'vincent price'.

ReverendMilo said...

remember clue 2 can come from a image source other than the actual location.

maven said...

Just called Rusty's and talked with the Asst. Mgr. He said I was the first to call! He did hear something about something happening this week with LOST!!!!!! This just might be it!

Amy Lynn said...

*grumbles about ANOTHER event in LA.

Oh well :)

maven said...

It's funny...I first asked if he knew anything about a promotion happening with a TV show. He said that doesn't happen until Dec. (Apparently they give away TV sets around Christmas time!) Then I zeroed in and asked if anything is happening this week with a TV show called LOST. That's when he said yes, he had heard about that, but that's he knows!

Nachosaur said...

Good work!!! You all go there. Oh, and GO CLIPPERS!!!

Avondale Blog said...

That's great, maven!

Sayid'sgirl said...

I was looking some input on what other water cooler moments they might chose from.
I don't think any of them have been bad. Some of them haven't been in my taste.
I don't really look at them as mistakes, just artistic interpretation.

maven
That's great good work. I'll be following you on twitter if this pans out and you go to the event.

But don't be offended when I quit following you after the event. :)

Sayid'sgirl said...

lol Hey that great good work. I guess I couldn't make up my mind. Geez.

Amy Lynn said...

I dunno, the random highlighted "5" and the wrong foot are certainly not good.

Sayid'sgirl said...

You know I never even noticed that until it was pointed out.
I just really like it.
I don't know I guess I'm not that picky. I love the 4 toed statue. If I justify it I'd buy it too. I think it's very artistic of course that's just my opinion.

Both of those pieces give me a good feeling. Good memories of the show.
But again that's just me. Everyone buys art for different reasons.

Amy Lynn said...

True... I actually love the concept of the statue poster. Just the combo of no 4-toes and the wrong foot soiled it for me. We LOST fans are a detail oriented bunch.

Sayid'sgirl said...

That should be if I could justify it...
I shouldn't type and watch tv at the same time. :)

Sayid'sgirl said...

Yeah I guess you're right. It would have been nice if they had shown the four toes. And trying to be artistic they chose to highlight the right foot while trying to incorporate the rest of the statue. Since the right side of the entire statue is the only side we seen.
But I guess I forgive the artist.

Zort70 said...

Just finished watching the first Flash Forward, very good so far.

Maven great work, sounds promising.

Zort70 said...

Perhaps Vincent / Madison will make a guest appearance ?

ReverendMilo said...

pictures of poster 6 are up now.
http://lost.cyberspacecowboys.com/poster6/
tough picture to light.

I also enhanced the skull from poster3 if you want to take a look at it.

maven said...

I'm hoping Madison/Vincent makes a guest appearance at Rusty's! Zort wonders why Rusty's was chosen and so do I....Maybe it's close enough so they can messenger stuff instead of shipping things cross country?

LotteryTicket said...

ReverendMilo, great photos. I think "Love Triangle: might have black light effect?

BarbaraJay said...

In honor of Vincent and the pet theme, I've changed my icon to my pretty yet spoiled rotten dog, Bo.

ReverendMilo said...

@Lottery_Ticket, I'll pull my blacklight rig out after dark and check.

ithinkimgunnahurley said...

i think the reason they are doing it at rusty's(near L.A.) is because madison/vincent is probably going to be there, and they don't want to have to take the dog cross country unless they are filming or whatnot.

Deneph said...

Jorge, is that you? :o)

Zort70 said...

Like the enhanced skull, brings it to life, so to speak.

I'm slightly disappointed, or I would have been if I'd bought the poster, that there isn't anything hidden on the 4-toed statue poster.

Still I'm sure it will look great on a wall anyway.

Capcom said...

I agree Amy, Mr.No-Toes-Wrong-Foot didn't move me to stick my VISA in the slot. :o) You're right, Lost fans are into details. It wouldn't have been that difficult to select an artistic angle to represent the statue accurately, but that's the way the artist went and that's OK.

Tim said...

Why the anonymity on first poster number 6?

I hope they will reveal the text of their letter. Prize photo would be nice too.

RevMilo, how do you get your posters to flatten out so well for your photos? Good work!

ReverendMilo said...

Tim,
Long ago in a land over an hour away, an semi-wise stoned art teacher taught me how to properly use quality poster putty. :)

and because I think it is really cool a direct link to the enhanced skull in poster 3
http://lost.cyberspacecowboys.com/poster3/poster3_skull_enhanced.jpg

maven said...

ReverendMilo: That's the best shot of the skull I've seen. Good job!

mistersh0w said...

New clue up! Ventura Blvd!

LotteryTicket said...

Maven! Go Go Maven! You must be so excited.

maven said...

OMG...it's really true! Rusty's on Ventura Blvd.! That's the main drag in the San Fernando Valley! LOL I sure hope it's at a good time...I've got things planned that I can't get out of!

maven said...

Their hours at 8AM-9PM M-F, Sat opens at 9AM and Sun opens at 10AM. For those going it's east of Colfax.

Sandman90 said...

Been following this blog for awhile. Great detective work!

maven said...

Welcome, Sandman90! It's certainly a team effort around here! One thing leads to another! lol

maven said...

A little update:
Called Rusty's again to try and get a time & date. Most clerks didn't know what the heck I was talking about. Talked again with the Asst. Mgr. I'm still the only one calling. He denied knowing when this will happen. He was very nice, but said the only one who knows is the owner and he's out of town until Thursday! This was planned over a month ago!

JPL said...

11600 ventura boulevard
???

JPL said...

Looks like I'm a few minutes too late and in the wrong city.

Not enough sleep. :)

Sandman90 said...

So, Maven, based on your conversation, are we thinking a Thursday event?

maven said...

Sandman: Yes, that's the feeling I got from the Asst. Mgr. I joked around with him about whether he was told to deny knowing anything, and he laughed and really didn't seem to know the details. The other 2 clerks I talked to first had NO idea what was going on. But he did offer me the info that the owner is the only one who knows and he's out of town until Thursday and it was planned over a month ago.

Anonymous said...

..maybe I'll drive over and see if i can break my own record,,,while I'm there, pick up new rubberized squeeky rotten arm chew toy for the dog. No, jk,,wouldn't want to gowdy the event..but this ought to be interesting on how they display the web address and all..hhhmmm..maybe a poodle with the address cut into its hair...or doggie biscuits (in the shape of fish biscuits???) with the address baked into them...hows that for a souvenir?...howabout an autographed picture of Madison?..have fun!...MEL

maven said...

I'm hoping Vincent/Madison shows up (or a look-a-like) with a collar having the url on it!

Scoutpost said...

That would be so cool Maven!! hmmm...Thursday better put that on the calendar!

maven said...

Thursday I'm planning on going to the LA County Fair. Hubby took off a day from work to go during the week! It ends this weekend! This better not be Thursday! I'm willing to give up Mah Jongg on Friday if it's Friday!

Zort70 said...

New Clue so NEW POST
