Artist Roundup 144

As there have been a few updates about the various artists mentioned in the comments it seems sensible to post the details in a main post.

First up is Olly Moss on Twitter (thanks to roxanna)


Update - As you can see from above Olly Moss has retracted the original statement


Next we have a post on OMG Posters about The Hatch.

There is also a comment from Kevin on this blog post that says -

Kevin Tong, on October 7th, 2009 at 12:59 am Said:
It says Deus Ex Machina, the name of the episode.


Also regarding Kevin Tong, LostInLondon posted a link to these pictures :



There is also this intriguing picture from Dan McCarthy on Facebook (thanks to waffle)




Finally, just because the Inside The Rock Poster Frame blog has lots of information on cool posters.







Don't forget you can still vote in the favourite poster poll in the post below.

*patiently waits for her Desmond poster*

Sayid'sgirl said...

Thanks zort
This makes it easier to find their sites.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I wouldn't mind a Desmond and or a Charlie poster.

Amy Lynn said...

Also, I bet someone could make a really nice "Jacob in the fire" poster. I might entertain that.

eXo said...

A "Not Penny's Boat" poster would be pretty damn cool.

Or a poster that somehow depicts the emotions and events that ended up as "The Constant".

A Locke vs Locke poster?

How about Arzt getting blown to pieces? Oh... I was the only person who loved that scene.... nevermind.....

Amy Lynn said...

I really hope poster 16 is going to be "Artist so-and-so for LA X"

LostinLondon said...

Zort70 - you are totally right about that blurred out print next to the Hatch prints in Kevin Tong's flickr photo. I wonder what it could be?

maven said...

Thanks again, Zort, for consolidating all the artist info stuff in one place! I'm confused...who exactly is Olly Moss?

reAnimated said...

a screen print artist. He did Lockes Secret I believe.

lost4evr said...

These are some great photos. Thanks for posting them

feel_the_insanity said...

I hear you Amy Lynn, I really want a Desmond poster. Call me crazy, but I'm kinda hoping the final poster is actually extra copies of the sold out ones. I think that would be cool.

maven said...

Thanks, reAnimated!

TomRex said...

It looks like the blurred picture may be the original DCAAPB print.

Zort70 said...

Tom - yes it does look like that, but why blur it ?

Zort70 said...

Maven, that question caught me out I had to go back and make sure I hadn't made a mistake !

Martyn said...

I'm confused by the facebook page for Dan McCarthy. Considering there is a poster reveal each week, that means that the final poster will be revealed week starting 30th November, so Jan 2010 is a bit out of the time period.

Also, I'm putting my money on being one of those Paul Scheer prints that he was mentioning before Ronie Midfew became apparent. Either that or a proper nice painting that'll cost like $100 or something.

Out of interest, how much was the damon carlton and a polar bear painting, anyone who bought it?

TomRex said...

Maybe he was in a "better safe than sorry" mode. I'm sure they were probably told to keep most things secret (Leia Bell said that this was the case).

It's interesting to think that 16 of the 30 prints went to artists before anybody else.

Zort70 said...

Martyn, the DCaaPB print hasn't been for sale to my knowledge. It was sent to a few people as gifts.

Martyn said...

Ah right, cheers for clearing that up. Thought I read somewhere that a few people could buy them but obviously misunderstood what they said.

ReverendMilo said...

I have been tweeking and optimizing the pictures of the prints and the pages that hold them on DCaaPB.com

If you notice a broken link, incorrect artist page, or anything else wrong please let me know. I realized that I am missing the Jason Munn print 6 signature image, so it is probably on one of my computers at the house. I'll add it later tonight if I can find it.

Don't forget to leave a prayer or thanks for Tyson at the bottom of the main page. You guys are great.

Thanks!
Rev

Nachosaur said...

23rd comment!!!

Wonder what the 8th poster first orderer's gift will be? Maybe one of the "happy villians" screenprints?

JPL said...

@Nachosaur - Good guess on the gift - that'd be very cool! I'm hoping someone releases something from DGPH... I'd buy their print version of "Lost on an Island".

Waiting to vote in favorite poster poll till I receive The Hatch. Monday is a holiday, so if posters keep coming as quick as they do, I hope to see it on Tuesday - maybe along with a final clue. :)

Anonymous said...

If i don't get the dan mccarthy print i'm going to be one sad panda.

Nachosaur said...

Notice how the Dan McCarthy photo was #8...very suspicious.

Anonymous said...

The Smoke Monster poster sold for $175 on ebay. Damn scalpers.

Anonymous said...

Well.. that leaves me aghast. $175 you say?...The seller will regret being so impatient. Yes, all markets fluctuate,,but over time,,these pups will be worth more than 175 dollars. More to the point..175 can be considered their real high end value today,,rather than the " subsidized" 50 dollars we are paying.

Yet its unfortunate to see such a quick take on something...that a real fan may have cherished for the rest of their life.
Hopefully, the winner of the auction, will. I mean..50 dollars to 175 dollars is 125 dollars profit..C'mon..how desperate do you have to be ..for a measly 125 dollars?..geesh!..What?, i can go buy a couple new games for my Sony PS2?..........MEL

Amy Lynn said...

I dunno, man, $125 could feed a small family for a week. Economy's rough.

Here is the transaction through link at expressobeans:

Cheif Brody said...

Anybody else miss Paul Scheer a lil bit? It would be nice if he dropped into the site once and a while and commented on the latest art revealed. Maybe give out info about the artist, or even point out things like the 'hidden skull' in the Van painting, or telling us the words say "Deus Ex Machina" under the island, etc. It sure would liven up these dead moments between clues.

But considering the domain name DC&APB was registered in May 09, it's likely all that YouTube, and early Paul Scheer stuff (finding the "LA X" script in the dumpster @ Disney studios) was shot and edited long before Comic Con. I'm guessing we wont see him again til the final reveal.

Some more Season 6 teasers would be a nice reward for all our dedication to following this thing, right?

Anonymous said...

Amy..I would think that anybody in that tough of financial straights,,wouldn't put up 50 dollars on a Ebay gamble. Soo.. to me, this sale smacks of profiteering. That is unfortunate, because as stated, this effort is for the Fans..To me.. the 50 dollars asking price,, is a subsidized price. We the fans, are being rewarded,,yet small minded profiteers glom in on the action for a pair of new Nike'ies..That sucks..imho......MEL

Scoutpost said...

I would totally take $125 profit. Depending on how many of these I end up buying, I may end up selling one too. I am surprised that they sold it so quickly though. I would bet if they wait until this whole thing is over and maybe even until S6 starts that you might be able to get more. Just wonderin'.

Amy Lynn- I also wonder if poster 16 will be a WCM from S6 that we haven't seen yet. Kind of like when we got to see the Oceanic 815 wreckage video in Find815 before the opener of S4.

As far as how long these poster giveaways go... I would imagine it would go at least 1 week past Nov. 30...just because I bet they skip Thanksgiving weekend.

The Kharma Initiative said...

MEL, your comment in the last post about your surreal view of Lost, and the purpose of Lost being The Creation Of Mystery, reminded me of J.J. Abrams' Mystery Box TED talk (link)

A sample J.J. quote from the talk: "Mystery is more important than knowledge."

It's an illuminating video, take a look if you haven't watched it already (though it sounds like you may have). And keep your eye on the Mystery Box.

And an interview with Kevin Tong, on the Greatness of Kevin Tong: link

I can see why someone might sell a poster for $175. That $125 profit may not be too much, but it's enough to pay for another two prints! :)

The Kharma Initiative said...

Zort70 said...

It looks good, I can't wait for an even higher res version from ReverendMilo.

Amy Lynn said...

OK, I know it's only Thursday, but I'm ready for frame 9 now.

AndySchex said...

Me too Amy. I need my next fix...I mean clue.

Zort70 said...

Ok, timeline updated ready for the next clue to arrive.

We had to wait from 30th of September until the 2nd of October last time.

The worst day this next poster could be revealed is next Tuesday as it's my wife's birthday and I know we won't by pressing F5 all night !

Amy Lynn said...

Zort, September 30 - October 2 is only 48 hours. We're almost at 48 hours now.

Sandman90 said...

You're right , Zort - that's no way to spend her birthday. Hope it works out for you. If there were a way to pick up an extra (I really don't know if it is), I'd be happy to help as I'm on vacation and will be following the reveal closely.

LostinLondon said...

boo - Olly Moss has tweeted to say he probably can't sell the Locke posters.

:(

LotteryTicket said...

Where is Tyson going from Buenos Aires? I give you most probable destinations.

Also, if this continues overseas, then Thanksgiving break is irrelevant (in terms of ARG schedule, of course, not the concept of thanks). So London, Madrid, Sydney, Hawai'i would be fantastic. But can Tyson stay away from LA for three months?

I am sending prayer via ReverendMilo's link today.

Sandman90 said...

Thanks for the info, lostinlondon. Bummer.

Anonymous said...

Chief..yes , paul would be a good time filler between frames.I'm still LMAO at Damon's great line in Pauls clueless search.." i don't care about his motivation! I want him Dead!!"...

KI..I came by the " Mystery" understanding by the way of researching Rene Magritte , years ago,,and again, when I noticed stuff on LOST resembling his perspective...That JJ has molded it into his own perspective is very cool. I would have loved to been a fly on the wall when JJ brought Damon in and discussed developing a show, that ended up being LOST....MEL

Zort70 said...

Thanks forthat, I've updated the main post.

LostinLondon said...

I hope it is London next!

The scene between Sun and Widmore in London was literally 5 minutes from where I was living at the time and I was so excited in the season 4 finale. Don't know how I will be if I can make it to a reveal!

Anyway, I will try to get anywhere in the UK to be honest.

Capcom said...

Me too Kharma, Mel's ideas reminded me of JJ's box story as well. I can't imagine a little kid deciding not to ever open a box of magic tricks from their grandpa, so he must have been a pretty precocious and interesting kid. :-)

I was afraid that when news of the posters went into the general media that they'd end up on Ebay. Only for the fact that now we'd be competing with the rest of the greedy secondary market world to get one of these limited editions meant for Lost fans. :-p

Mel, Lost was actually proposed to ABC by another writer, and then ABC took the idea and gave it to JJ. But yes, I'd love to be in the room when they are fleshing out an episode or script! They must have a ton of fun.

Could be except that for TLE and Find815, clues always revolved around U.S. holidays, even for those overseas. But no matter to me.

I am going out of town Friday to Tuesday and doubt I'll have computer, or at least limited access, so I also hope the reveal isn't next Tuesday (or even Monday for that matter).
But alas, I am a mere small cog in this whole thing and the show won't stop for my schedule! Happy Thursday everybody!

AndySchex said...

I just noticed that The 4 toed Statue is sold out.

Geoffrey said...

hey I'm sure this has been answered already but as I am newer to the blog can someone fill me in on who Tyson is? What they are doing? thanks!!

Amy Lynn said...

Tyson's not a real person. All of the posters come from a "Tyson Givens" (obviously a play on Mike Tyson/Robin Givens).

Geoffrey said...

ohhhhh Thanks you much!

reAnimated said...

Its funny that when I get a print in the mail at my office, the receptionist always emails or calls me telling me I got a package from a Mr. Tyson Givens. heh

LotteryTicket said...

Geoffrey, hi, welcome, to continue on Tyson . . .
Paul Scheer's original blog DCaaPB had regular post and comments thru August 15th. We have these pages/topic posted at the DCaaPB Timeline link (main page). When the blog was taken over by Midfew Arts, we could no longer post comments.

When the first poster tubes arrived with the return address of Tyson Givens . . . CA we decided to campaign on our behalf thru Lost Args, Twitter and other methods using Tyson as our contact. We think that our messages on some level are being heard. Some of the more technologically gifted or 'well-connected' have had direct contact with TPTB when we have real concerns like back-door Gomerch issues.

So, tongue-in check, Tyson is a genius.

You can send prayers to Tyson at www.dcaapb.com.

All in good fun.

Geoffrey said...

Thanks LotteryTicket that really helped me out, I was really wondering what that was all about so Thank You!!

reAnimated said...

any predictions on when the clues will start for frame 9?

Trial Attorneys said...

The 4 Toed Statue poster is now sold out - not sad that I didn't buy though.

Thanks for this TKI. I hope you don't mind but I referenced this (your post and the video) over on a thread running on the ABC boards about mysteries (Jamming the Signals of Reality) - most of us are newer to the online "life" of Lost and hadn't seen this video but have been trying to dissect the May Wired issue, the Mysteries of the Universe videos, the posters, and the show in general for "mysteries". Very illuminating talk indeed!

Anonymous said...

I've got a mystery for you - why doesn't the 4-toed statue print have any toes? And it sold out?

Sherry said...

I REALLY wanted the 4-toed statue print, and was going to buy it today! So I emailed Tyson, and they actually said they have 10 more. They just put sold out to take inventory overnight. Final 10 going up later today. The sold out. I will be F5'ing again!

Sherry said...

BACK UP! Bought one! 9 left I'm guessing

LotteryTicket said...

Enjoyed the frenetic JJ at TED and all LOST connections. Especially the visual "?" on his magic box which we see repeated on dcaapb frames 16 times. JJ's contribution to LOST, for me, is the magic box, metaphorically and literally (see Sawyer). He gave the example today's magic box as technology, specifically CG/CAD, allowing, visually, "Bad Twin" author Gary Troup to be sucked into a plane engine (no need to kill stunt people, lol). But what I also noted was the original magic box, birth/creation represented in 8-months-pregnant Claire. Jack's protects Claire, Mr. Troup perishes. So technology gives us the scene of writer/creator and mother/creator, one perishing, one surviving.

JJ: "What comes next?" He gives us examples of films created independently of large studios with technology using cg/cad software comparing these low budget movies close to or better than mainstream films (2007). Which got me to thinking? Will LOST fans be involved in its ending, or never ending story. Should a 'magic box' ever be opened = loss of mystery. JJ will not be opening his real ? box and I think LOST will stay closed as well. I'll go to my grave 'creating' answers to the mysteries of The Numbers, The Smoke Monster, The Crash, The Four-Toed Statue, The Love Triangle, the Hatch and all the other water cooler moments.

WARNING: Do not attempt to reply or answer any of the above questions. It will result in severe headache and nose bleed.

Amy Lynn said...

Good post, Lottery Ticket. Also interesting that the engaged couple (Steve and Kristen) die in the crash, while Jin and Sun, whose marriage is seriously on the rocks, survives.

LotteryTicket said...

Sherry, good news. Glad you got the poster you wanted. It would be nice for TPTB/Tyson/Gomerch to put countdown of inventory on the DCaaPB frames. I think everyone would benefit from inventory information. Do you think you could ask Tyson on our behalf?

feel_the_insanity said...

@Capcom, not to nitpick but LOST was the idea of ABC head at the time Lloyd Braun. Who, interestingly enough, was pretty much fired for green-lighting LOST because it was so expensive. Anyway, Braun wanted a show that combined Cast Away and Survivor. Also, the network had wanted to work with Abrams for a long time. So, it was Braun's idea and Abrams expanded on it. Although, it was actually Lindelof who pioneered the "grand" story of LOST.

Bummer about Olly Moss' Twitter post, really wanted a Locke's Secret poster.

Anonymous said...

LT and all...on the question of opening the magic box...the way I perceive it..every episode of LOST opens the Magic Box..An example: ( i have posted this phenomena many times elsewhere)..in the episode EHH..at the end..the peanut butter jar is opened and Claire takes a sniff........I am sitting in the barcolounger in my living room watching this,,and,,,I Smell Peanutbutter. yea, Claire takes a snort and I smelled peanutbutter! The Master Magicians of LOST manipulated me to smelling peanutbutter!!!..Now..I wasn't the only one so manipulated. I posted about this , elsewhere, and sure enough all sorts of reactions manipulated, followed by the fans. Some just went to the kitchen and made a P&B sandwich..some opened up a jar of PB and took a finger full of it , into their mouths..others just took a snort..Point is,,they got us,,got us on a subconscious level and brought it to the surface. One could say...they brought the viewers to the Surreal..made the subconscious reality and the external tangible reality Unified,,made us whole on the item of peanutbutter..

Now, thats just one example. It seems to me..every episode opens the magic box.....I mean..didn't it feel good when Smokie was let loose on Keme and crew.?...Its all about the " feel". This show encourages the viewer to feel rather than to Think.When you start thinking, is when the smoke comes outthe ears...and when " Feel" is let loose to its freedom..all sorts of magical things start happening..I smelled peanutbutter....MEL

Sandman90 said...

I think that I am ready for the next clue.

ytime said...

But what I think the real point of JJ's Mystery Box talk was (as he pointed out about Jaws), that people are drawn to the mysteries and the suspense and the bloody water, but the real art in Jaws, was the great scene between father and son. The point is the characters - the human moments- the greatness that is Lost isn't the water cooler moments, but the greatness of the characters and their development, and their peanut butter moments.

The Kharma Initiative said...

MEL, that should have been a URL:

Ismelledpeanutbutter.com

:D

love it!

Nachosaur said...

Hey, looks like th frame 6 Twitter got taken down. Didn't know if you knew this or not.

I just bought a 4-toed statue poster at 4:00pm CDT with no problem.

So only 8 at most of the 4-Toed left then.

Night all.

..this reminds me of a Frank Zappa( bless his soul) concert many years ago,,where he wore knee high laced leather boots on stage. He began the show by propping up his boots and then untieing them and then unlacing them. By the time he got done unlacing them the crowd was already going nuts. By the time he had the first one half way laced up the crowd was going bizerk..He said.." Frustrating ,isn't it!?."..then proceeded to finish lacing his boots up and then blow the crowd away with his usual high energy music...MEL

jeremy said...

In my opinion, The Hatch is the first poster that might appeal to non-LOST fans.

Sandman90 said...

Since we're rounding up info on the artists, I found the following comment, apparently from Eric Tan, on his website (http://erictanart.blogspot.com/) regarding Frame 4, The Crash:

"For those of you trying to complete the collection, or simply trying to get just this one, I know how frustrating that can be. Hopefully a few more will find their way to the public. When I do have more info, I'll let you know through the blog."

Zort70 said...

Still no clue, looks like we are playing the long game.

JPL said...

Let the weekend festivities of clue watching and searching begin!

Amy Lynn said...

JPL, you totally tricked me into thinking the clue was up.

Nate said...

I desperately want a Smoke Monster print. sigh. The one sold on Ebay was originally $200, I offered $100 for it, they dropped it to $175, and it was gone before I knew it.

Amy Lynn said...

I'm really dismayed that these things are popping up on Ebay. It seems very anti-fun.

Anonymous said...

There is still one on expressobeans.com, listed at $150.

Capcom said...

Morning Argies!

I agree Amy. :-(

Has anyone run a scramble program thingy on the name Tyson Givens? I'd be very dismayed if TPTB merely used names from a sad abusive marriage to make a joke. JMHO.

Hi Insanity! So, what Lostpedia has on the subject of the writer who pitched the idea is not true? I read the same thing in a trade mag as well. The original writer's name has been on the opening credits since S1, but I havn't noticed if it was on there last season, I didn't look.

Amy Lynn said...

Capcom, here's the anagram list for "Tyson Givens"

http://wordsmith.org/anagram/anagram.cgi?anagram=Tyson+Givens&t=1000&a=n

Capcom said...

Thanks Amy!

To use better wording on my comment about the writer, Lieber (I think that's his name) wrote up the scripts for what (as Insanity correctly put it) Braun pitched, but it's said that Braun then fired Lieber for unknown reasons after he wrote a couple eps, according to Lieber. That's always bugged me because I have friends who are writers, but at least he still gets credits for it at least.

Amy Lynn said...

Why would you buy the statue poster on expressobeans when you can buy it from DCAAPB for a third of the price?

Nate said...

Smoke Monster print, not the statue print

Zort70 said...

Nate, sorry you didn't get one while it was still for sale officially.

TomRex said...

I'm really starting to worry that I am going to miss one. I'm going to be out of town towards the end of this month and I'm very concerned. Maybe I will have to carry around a mini laptop with me everywhere I go.

Amy Lynn said...

We should set up some kind of system so if you think you're gonna miss one, you can have someone buy one for you if it's on your want list.

maven said...

I'd be glad to help people out. Problem is, unless you're trying to complete the set, you don't know if you must have it until you've seen it!


Tyson: Please give us a tidbit for the weekend!

TomRex said...

I am a full set collector - so it doesn't really matter. I'm usually following things here when things go down.

They usually send the first to order prize with Saturday delivery - so I expect to see a first clue sometime this afternoon. I'm also going to guess that this first order may win a DCAAPB print.

Anonymous said...

you guys that whine about the posters popping up on ebay are crazy. dont let what other people do with their posters take away the fun for you. yeah it sucks if you "need" a sold out one. i have a smokey that i dont really plan on keeping. i know i'll probably want the dan mccarthy and the jay ryan prints. so smokey is insurance for that and if it keeps going for around 200 bucks, i might just sell it. once you buy something it's yours, dont worry about what the other kids are doing.

there are lots of poster collectors out there and they have the scent of the Lost posters now. So they will contiue to sell out and be resold. just try to have fun yourself.

Amy Lynn said...

I'm happy to help anyone out who needs a full set.

Ellen said...

Hello everyone,

I've been lurking here for some time, but I finally have gotten up the nerve to say something! I'm an avid LOST fan, and have watched seasons 1-4 three times over. I am now rewatching season 5 on ABC.com. I am also trying to collect the entire 16 prints (I'm an art lover, what can I say?) So far, the only one I'm missing is (gasp, arrghhh) the Crash. Somehow, I got mixed messages about the time on that one. But I'll keep hoping somehow...

Now, I have another problem. I am having outpatient surgery this coming Tuesday between 11:30 and 2:00 PM EDT. I will do what I usually do, which is hang out at the DCPB site non-stop from the moment the first clue is posted. However, I simply won't be able to do this on Tuesday. So I'm hoping it will be later than that! I can't take my laptop into surgery! I guess those are the breaks for a LOST-loving grandma!

Cheers to all and keep up the good work sleuthing!

Ellen

LotteryTicket said...

Amy Lynn, I am in agreement with you. I am going to try for a complete set. I also have a conflict in early November which will have me 30,000 feet up exactly when the url goes live. So, if you can suggest best way to handle this, it would be appreciated. I am going to miss 11/4-5 and again 11/11-12 reveals depending on Tyson. It only becomes a serious problem if the poster looks to sell out.

I am keeping track over at DarkUFO for owners of posters. If you look at the list for "The Numbers" you will see * by names of those I know to be trying for complete set. I try to update several times a week. There is also a link called "Complete Set" where UFO members are discussing this issue.

Amy Lynn said...

Maybe Zort could set up a separate post that people could comment on if they're going to need coverage during a certain time period, and information if they are going for a full set our would buy "any poster that was related to"..., etc?

Then someone could volunteer to be their backup, and would be responsible for purchasing the print, or would be responsible for finding someone to purchase the print if they, too, became unexpectedly unavailable?

LotteryTicket said...

Ellen, yeah, e-mail!

Are you SURE you're a die-hard LOST fan? NOT Taking the laptop into surgery! For shame. lolololo hehehehe

Amy Lynn, add Ellen to the "I Need A Poster Proxy" list.

LotteryTicket said...

What will be the next clue?

a) a kanagroo

c) Big Ben

d) el toro

e) retail shop in Burbank

Ellen said...

LotteryTicket, does that mean I should share my poster numbers over at DarkUFO? I haven't opened any of them yet! ;)

Ellen said...

Hi all!
I was just catching up on all the comments and I noticed my name! (It's not me, by the way!) Welcome to another Ellen!
I love this last poster...it reminds me of when John was explaining how he had "looked into the eye of this island, and it was beautiful!" Too bad it sold out so quickly. Oh well.
Anyway, welcome to all the newbies!
xxoo

LotteryTicket said...

wow. You are just like JJ Abrams and his magic box! (see link above).

No, I don't need the print number. I can just add your name (UFO member name or Ellen) to the bottom of the list. If you want to share that information at a later date, that is ok. So I take it that you have all so far?

Ellen said...

Thanks, Ellen. We should figure out a way to distinguish ourselves!

Ellen said...

LotteryTicket, I have all but the Crash (sob). I'm going to start posting my name here (Ellen) and my UFO name (EBlackmun) to my posts so you can identify me.

Ellen/EBlackmun

Ellen said...

I agree, Ellen(2)! I've been around the blog-o-sphere for quite some time now and I would have a difficult time changing everything, but I will if I need to...
xxoo

Ellen said...

Most people know me from my blog, Crazy Georgia LOST Fan ! or from here (my home on the web!)

Ellen said...

And here I've been wondering if someone else has been posting using my name! This is totally surreal. Anyway, our pictures are different. And I'm signing mine so everyone will know!

Ellen/EBlackmun

Ellen said...

very cool...another Ellen!
Thanks for the distinction...
xxoo

Capcom said...

We can tell the difference by your avi pix, Ellens! Heheh, at work we already had a Becky and then got another one. For a while we were calling them new Becky and old Becky, and even though they were about the same age, that (the "old" moniker) didn't go over too well. :o)

Ellen said...

Feel free to call me "old" Ellen, because I am. :)

Ellen/EBlackmun

Ellen said...

@Capcom -LOL!
(Don't tell anybody, but that avi pic of mine was taken 25 years ago!!)
And no, I won't post a current one, so don't even think about it!
:D

Zort70 said...

Hi all, I have thought about a poster buddy system, and AndySchex emailed about doing something.

The trouble is I don't know what. I can set up a Poster Buddy post for people to put requests on, but that's all it would be, it wouldn't guarantee anybody anything.

Zort, maybe you could just put up a post with people who are willing to be volunteers, and we an provide our private e-mail addresses?

Ellen, my pic was taken *only* 10 years ago! :P

Hi capcom! In retrospect, you are correct about Jeffrey Lieber. Lieber was approached to do the script, but they didn't really know what the overall "story" of the show was going to be. He wrote something (think it was called "Nowhere"?) but Braun hated it. So, they called up Abrams who then said he needed another person to help. Thus, Lindelof enters and writes the pilot. So, I guess both of us just typed up the history of LOST! Glad to know there's another fan who not only loves the show, but the background to the show as well.

P.S. Time for another clue guys!

Capcom said...

Very interesting Insanity! Heheh, yes, we just can't get enough of the gory details can we? X-D

Anybody else catch JJ Abrams mentioning his love for printing, and screenprinting in particular, during his funny and interesting TED talk link?

This was recorded over two years ago. He may not be directly involved in Lost anymore, but his likes are still influencing this ARG!

And who thinks that the whole 'I bought this Mystery Box at a magic store when I was kid and never opened it' story is 'just' a story from a terrific storyteller. I can see him getting his prop folks to make a box with a question mark on it just for the TED talk. :D

@Ellen-he he!

A quote from an email to me from tgcustomerservice@gmail.com:

"We're halfway done and definitely think the best is yet to come!"

Might be hyperbole. But it might not be!

I say the latter.

LotteryTicket said...

Kharma, to what were they responding? Did you e-mail a ? Or was the e-mail unsolicited?

Amy Lynn said...

KI, does that mean you have your Hatch poster?

The Kharma Initiative said...

Amy Lynn, no, no Hatch poster for me. I was on the road and missed this excellent one :{

Lotteryticket, I had just emailed to thank them for my first to order prize for Smokie the Monster and to ask a few questions regarding that (stay tuned for more from me on that) and they/he/she included that comment in their post.

No more, no less. :)

Zort70 - Here's the start of an idea: compile a list of full set collectors and then pair off everyone on the list. Then, when a new poster goes on sale, if you haven't posted that you bought a poster in lets say 30 minutes, your buddy would be honor bound to get a poster for you.

The problem with that is if, for example, we get a "Not Penny's Boat" poster, and they're gone in 12 minutes.

AndySchex said...

Its not a foolproof system, but its designed to give someone going for a full set a reasonable chance of getting a poster if they are not there due to a family/work/emergency situation.

maven said...

The problem with pairing everybody up, puts so much pressure on the "helper" to actually get the poster...these are getting popular and are selling out. Even though I'm thinking I'm not buying anymore...I ended up having to have "The Hatch"! And who can guarantee to be at their computer when the SELL NOW happens?

AndySchex said...

There are no guarentees. Unless I know ahead of time the poster goes on sale at 2am, there's a real good chance I'm going to miss it if it sells out in under 3 hours. But if there's a 1% chance my buddy is online during that time, then I'd have a 1% chance of getting the poster and that's better than 0%.

Hi y'all it looks like Tyson knows I am up to my arse in tax work. I have twittered another prayer asking for the clue, and that is the best I can do.


I think I have completely caught up with DCaaPB.com while we wait, can someone poke around and see if I have made any gross errors?

Thanks y'all

Zort70 said...

Ok, I've created a post.

What do we think, have I gone over the top with the T's & C's

Zort70 said...

All looks good to me Rev, but did you mean "...dinosaur hed in the..." or was that meant to be head ?

ReverendMilo said...

Lol Zort, it is supposed to be "hed" (I have corrected dinosaur to dinasaur, thanks!) it is a joke for Lostpedia forum fans.

Some joker came into the forum years ago asking if we saw the invisable dinasaur hed in the smoke monster. He then proceeded to produce try to circle the "hed" in screenshots using MSPaint. It was so laughable the thread ended up being over 17000 posts long I believe, and created a society "the Dinasaur Hed Cult".

Search "Dinosaur Hed in Lost" in google for more.

..Momentum...yes, consider it from a marketing perspective. This LOST FAN APPRECIATION has steam rolled into quite a bandwagon of Momentum. Not only are we, the Lost fan getting caught up in it, but now Print Groupies are caught up in it. Nearest I can tell..Mund or Tan or etc etc,,could take a dump on 18 X 24 poster board and the " Print " groupies would pay top dollar for it and within hours of taking delivery,,have it on EBAY for 4 times what they paid for it.

So..here it is Friday afternoon and not a clue. Seems to me a Momentum breaker may be in place. Cool this road show down,,restore some sense of calmness, collected heads about us and maybe get some time for the Print Groupies to be distracted by an event in their own world..seems to be possibilities I find while twiddeling my thumbs this afternoon at work, with out a clue.

This jugernaut has made waves but if some spacing is needed to keep things calm,,thats okay by me. I know the Marketing department is all for momentum,,but a break here and there may help in leveling out the peaks of excitement.. So it goes.

Of course,,part of me hopes this post functions as a gowdy...MEL

Amy..Im not too sure of your meaning..Oh, now I remember,, in those two episodes, hard references where made to the production of human excrement?. Well, Nikki and Paulo were pieces of poo. But, it was Sun who uttered the fresh and clear immortal words to Sawyer,,those diamonds have no value here..See, that is something the print Groupies wouldn't know about ,, or ever get..and if it did show up on a print, it would go right by them while they proclaimed their Love for art, and for us to just have fun......MEL

Rev Milo,

Love the site and your reviews - it all looks great! You are seriously making me want to order the Dharma Van... I have crash, four toed statue, smokie and the hatch, don't know whether to take the plunge or not! and then i think if i am going to get the van, i may as well get the love triangle...it's a slippery slope!

Your pics are fab- thanks!
