Poster 7 Roundup 45

Now the dust has settled and the 7th poster has sold out, just a few more images from today.

A picture sent in by Adam Gelvan (The Stuff Guy)

The shelf in Rusty's where the T-Shirts were displayed.


Amy Lynn has told us and then corrected by feel_the_insanity that the quote in the URL comes from The season Four Episode The Beginning Of The End




CHARLIE: Hey man. Don't run. Hurley. Just, just, sit down. I wanna talk to you. Come on. Don't do what you did in the store. Ok? There's no need to freak out.

HURLEY: No need to freak out? I'm trying to buy some jerky and a slushy, and suddenly you're standing over there by the Ho Hos. You're dead, what do you expect me to do?




The hub page has also been updated with the latest URL and some official pictures.

Good work, junior rangers.

Hey guys!

Good job getting the pics this morning! I hope they do more east Coast stuff though, since Baltimore is a bit too far away from LA.

Also, I think you guys mean that the quote is from Season 4, Ep.1, "The Beginning of the End". Thats when Charlie visits hurley at the mental institute.

Roxanna815 - the pixels under the print 5 frame are just that, leftover pixels.

I think that at some point the designer screenshot the page to redo the frame around print 5, when he did, he did not entirely erase the pixels beyond the bottom edge of the frame.

I fixed that particular frame for my picture page of the prints here:
DCaaPB.com

(work in progress)

Amy Lynn said...

Oops, yes, that is from The Beginning of the End. Sorry!

feel_the_insanity said...

From the other post...

Not to nitpick, but the quote is from The Beginning of The End (Season 4 premiere) not Because You Left (season 5 premiere).

Zort, you do a good job running this site and I didn't mean to single you out about the "backdoor" thing. I read Dragon's original post about the "backdoor" thing and just got really mad. I really wanted The Crash poster and was stunned to see it sell out so quickly. So, that explains why that happened. Keep up the good work everyone, you have gained a new "Forum Friend" in myself. If there's ever an event in Connecticut, I'm your man.

Are there any shirts left?

maven said...

Chris: When I left there were quite a few left, but they wouldn't let me take any more! They said I could come back later, but I'm unable to. Maybe someone else should go in there and grab a handful before the store closes?

Zort70 said...

I've updated the post for the correct episode title.

Zort70 said...

Like the DCaaPB.com website ReverendMilo.

A link to a very interesting Facebook post was just given at DarkUFO

Peeboo said...

Can anyone tell me how long until the posters sold out?

Deneph said...

About an hour.

Peeboo said...

ta, I can see some sleepless nights on the other side of the world coming up..

Peeboo said...

Me again...

Do the web sites go live at a given time or is that totally random?

Peeboo said...

and again...just checked the twitter feed...lostarg's tells me everything.

Anonymous said...

Man... When will they do something in Cincinnati? They've done something in CA more than once now... Share the love, guys!

Sandman90 said...

Giving a shout out to Maven for her awesome work and twitter updates. You allowed many of us to vicariously get into the excitement of the event and it was/is made all the more enjoyable by your enthusiasm. Thanks! And I love the poster - much darker than the others but it was one of my favorite moments.

ReverendMilo said...

Peeboo,

I dont know if this helps or not, but people discussing the lost prints on twitter typically end their "tweet" with "#LostARG" or "#LostViral", searching for either one of those should give you a pretty good historical listing of the tweets.

here is the search string as a link
http://twitter.com/#search?q=%23lostARG

Peeboo said...

Thanks, going to take a lot of sweet talking and a pre-formatted twitter feed if I'm going to be up at 2 am looking at Lost posters. :^)

Sandman90 said...

Don't know about everyone else but I'm hoping for some new locales for the upcoming art reveals. Personally, I think in Kansas City would be great given the numerous Wizard of Oz references in the show (including episodes "One of Them" and "The Man Behind the Curtain"). It's a nice city and would be able to draw a reasonable crowd even from St. Louis I suspect. I would really be happy if they throw a bone to those of us in the middle of the country. To address a post above - yes, I would even be content with Cincinnati. What do you think?

waffle said...

@Zort

Yeah, I may or may not have been the guy who commented on that facebook page about Lost, and I think I mentioned that post on this site a while ago though I didn't link to it. I LOVE Dan McCarthy's work (I own 30 of his prints and counting), so I'm very excited about that possibility.

Another artist, Jay Ryan (thebirdmachine.com), supposedly said in a newsletter that he's working on a top secret poster for a TV show.

maven said...

@Sandman90: Thanks! :) I do tend to get overexcited when it comes to LOST related stuff!

And I also think the middle of the country needs to get represented in the reveals! I've had my fun! I wonder if it's easier to have stuff here in the Los Angeles area, because I know that "someone" came by last night at closing time to drop off the t-shirts for today.

lora said...

I would think that Chicago would be a good place for an event. Though I will be somewhat upset if Chicago gets one, because I moved from there a few years ago to southwest Virginia, where there's virtually no chance of an event.

Scoutpost said...

All I can say is...if they put a clue in Tucson, they can put one anywhere. I still wonder why Tucson over Phoenix...but maybe that's one of those LOST questions that will never be answered! At least they are doing a better job than they did with those dreaded Apollo bar giveaways back in TLE.

Zort70 said...

Waffle - thanks for letting us know, I missed it the first time.

I'm still holding out for a UK reveal.

thorsten said...

The best poster yet, and I missed it.
I need to switch to another timeline. Now.

Zort70 said...

thorsten, don't turn the Donkey Wheel

thorsten said...

haha, right now I am banging a rock on a tiny fusion device, Zort!

Zort70 said...

I think everyone is having a non ARG day today, after all the excitement yesterday.

Deneph said...

Peeboo - sleep is overrated. You can sleep the couple of nights after a poster release. :o)

So, we have a new clue yet?

LotteryTicket said...

Non ARG day, blasphemy.

Didn't catch Mr. Taylor logo on the inside of the t-shirt next to url until this morning. Nice touch and it make that shirt connected with poster art.

Did we ever decide what to make of the 'e' or 'key' error in the url?

The reveal by the artist (your link) looks legit. So 'goes on sale' in January 2010 interesting as we thought this would be over by Dec.

I see my little blue star! Hello, aloha, salve, bonjour, olá, hola, hej, hei, Γειά, مرحبا,, halo, ciao, hallo, xin chào, witaj, हैलो, sveiki, labas, שלום, привет . . . hi to ALL who follow The Lost ARGs. If I missed your "hi" or made an error, forgive. Replies in your native would be fun! For instance, how do you say "Smoke Monster"? hehehehe

Amy Lynn said...

Lottery Ticket, if DCAAPB takes a break from events over Thanksgiving/Christmas, it's easier to believe this could stretch to January.

maven said...

A day of calm!

Zort70: Pretty impressive for our little blog here! Hope everyone switches over to TLC (The Lost Community) when S6 starts! Let's keep the momentum going.

Scoutpost said...

Impressive map Zort!! How cool! I can only say "hi" in English, Spanish and French (I'm not as gifted as Lottery Ticket)... but welcome everybody from all over the world!!

And ditto what Maven said...everybody come over to TLC when S6 starts. You think the discussions here are lively...wait until we start discussing time travel!

re: this ARG itself. I think we need to keep track of all the weird stuff. Like the misspells and the missing letters. I think Zort is already on top of this...but I have a feeling we might need it all after the 16th frame is revealed. (unless the person behind all of this is a really bad speller)

Ya'll have a great day! I'll check in later to make sure I'm not missing anything!

Zort70 said...

Yes I've got to update the Clues post soon.

I'll put the misspelt URL on there, and if there is anything else missing let me know.

LotteryTicket said...

It occurs to me that maybe the printer of the t was doing Tyson a favor by correcting his extra e. I hope when all is done that we get Tyson's story - good, bad and ugly.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Ah time travel my favorite topic.
Can't wait til Season 6 starts.

Until then I have Flash Forward tonight.

Amy Lynn said...

Totally inane rambling. There's an extra highlighted "5" on the Dharma van. There was an errant "e" in the URL yesterday. E is the 5th letter of the alphabet.

Tim said...

I can't see how the mis-spelled URL was done on purpose.

The purpose of the URL reveals (like on the T-shirt) is so that people know where to go to buy the prints.

If it wasn't for some (many?) of us already knowing all of the URLs ahead of time, the correct URL wouldn't have been known until the main DCPB page was updated to link to it.

Can you imagine everybody trying to hit the 'somejerkyandaslushy' site as printed on the shirt and it not coming up? There would have been a lot of complaints about how the revealed URL didn't match the actual URL.

That would have defeated the URL reveal event and t-shirt.

Anybody who saw the list of URLs a few weeks ago knew that this one was mis-spelled by whoever registered the domain.

I think we can safely ignore this as a clue of any sort.

Zort70 said...

Amy Lynn - there was an extra E in Theee Mike B from the first poster.

Maybe 5 is a greater significance here.

Amy Lynn said...

The only thing I can think of off the bat is that off the Oceanic 6, only 5 went back.
