First?

Mad that I'm going to be busy during the reveal ... :s

Congested said...

@reAnimated from the last post...

I'm thinking at some point there will be a poster depicting "The Others" and "The Dharma Initiative" ... would seem to be in line with some of the other themes we've had.

Though personally I'm still holding out for a "Drive Shaft: 2nd Tour of Finland" poster. Would go really well with the Locke's Secret movie poster.

reAnimated said...

@Congested, LMAO. That would be a brilliant poster.

Can't wait to find out. Now that we know a time, it looks like I wont need a poster busy after all. Best of luck to all you F5ers tomorrow. ;)

jeremy said...

ch-checka da email!

While not ideal, at least we won't have the tension of waiting for someone to report what the url is...

...just trying to look on the bright side.

=0p

reAnimated said...

poster *buddy :)

maven said...

Comixguru just posted on her blog about her meeting with Damon tonight! I should've gone!!!!!

reAnimated said...

Oh wow. JEALOUS

Congested said...

@reAnimated: wouldn't it be? doubt it'll happen but if it did I'd buy it in a second.

@maven: yes, just read it myself. :) ... and she asked him about the posters...

My last question to him was about the LOST print series. I asked him who came up with the idea- and he pointed to a woman standing next to me, Noreen. She quickly said- well, there was a group of us that came up with it. I asked her if she could divulge what the next print would be of- and she smiled and simply said, "I think you'll like it. It's one of my favorites." I tried pressing for more information, but all she would say is "Keep your eyes peeled tomorrow."

Now I'm pretty excited to see what we may get tomorrow. Worried I may have to have someone buy it for me since I'll be busy. :/

reAnimated said...

Hmm.. I wonder if the Oceanic signage and "baggage claim" is another clue to the the theme of the poster.

reAnimated said...

I mean, the Losties never made it as far as the baggage claim. heh

Congested said...

I like the theory by Charles from the last post... that "Baggage Claim" will be a song with Lost references in it by 88-Keys. It'd be especially awesome if the URL was in the song if that's the case and he recorded it just for this.

jeremy said...

ok...so last time I forgot to click the email comments button...

=0s

reAnimated said...

A custom tune would be pretty badass. I guess if you get a rapper involved with the clue, thats what ur hiring him for. :)

Geoffrey said...

I am SOOOOO excited for tomorrow!! Especially after reading coixguru's blog and how the developer of the print idea answered her question!! I'll be in my only class of the day with credit card and laptop in hand!!

Anonymous said...

Only 3 copies of "Methane Studios for The Dharma Van" glow-in-the-dark print available as of now! Get 'em while they're hot before it Sells Out!

The Dharma Van right here

reAnimated said...

how can you tell theres only 3 left?

Anonymous said...

Saw it on spoilertv/DarkUFO.

reAnimated said...

10 hrs and counting. time for some rest. nite.

Anonymous said...

So do we know yet if its EST or EDT? Just for those of us getting up in the middle of the night! An extra hour of sleep could make all the difference!

Zort70 said...

Just in case anyone is having trouble with the time zone, I've updated the main blog post with some clocks.

Avondale Blog said...

About the EST vs. EDT...

Here's a link to a World Clock

http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/

It appears most places are still on daylight savings, so my guess is that DCAAPB is just referring to the time in eastern USA.

Ellen said...

g'mornin'!
stopping by for email *yaawnn*...
have a great day everyone!
xxoo

scottbphilp said...

Thank you so much for the Adelaide clock :). Although I'm not looking forward to getting up at 3:30AM for the reveal though!

thorsten said...

While we wait… Part 4 of Mysteries of the Universe is out on Hulu, via Darkufo:

Martyn said...

So it's 6pm in the UK then. Should be alright with that, I just finish work. Better not be any customers lurking at the back come closing time or I'll be annoyed.

Zort70 said...

I think I'll let the URL hit the fan before creating a MOTU post.

Too much info in one day !

I'm going to leave work a little early today today to make sure I'm sat at a computer for the reveal.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Whew caught up with the comments.
I went to bed last night at 11:00 (eastern) last night was going to check one last time before bed but didn't. lol

As far as the EST EDT maybe the person posting thinks EST stands for eastern I did when I was little.

Also it's annoying that they've changed it from when it starts and ends. Do they really think it's saving energy. My lights are on from the time I get up to the time I go to bed not what what time of year it is. It was originally started for the farmers.

Sayid'sgirl said...

That should be no matter what time of year. Also now the trick or treaters have to go out in the dark because DST use to start before Halloween. Ok OT rant over.

This will make the second non event reveal. But the did say part of them could be vurtual.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Ok I need to get some caffine so I can stop some of my typos. :)

See ya all at 1:00 eastern!!

Zort70 said...

The reason it changes in the UK is usually given as it is safer for children to walk to school in the lighter mornings when the clocks change.

There are also schemes proposed to make the time change two hours for the UK and make that a permanent change. Not one I'm in favour of.

By the way to clarify my comment in the previous post last night I got woken up by a scratching noise, which was coming from the wall.

The cat was very interested in a small hole in the corner of the room. A mouse had got intothe wall, but couldn't get out because of the cat so it was tryng to scratch it's way through the wall.

Anyway if anyone has seen the film Mousehunt, they know what came next.

Ted said...

maybe the song will somehow contain the URL, like if it references a quote from the show.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Ted that would be cool.

So are we thinking audio or video on the blog today?

I'm guessing video. It could just be a post I guess.

LotteryTicket said...

Morning all. Sun is not up here in the Midwest. Rainy.

I will try and screen cap as the video is playing. Have nice app for that.

So thinking about claiming baggage . . . will this print be about daddy issues, Claire looking for hairbrush, Sawyer's stash. None are watercooler moments. Maybe it'a word that rhymes with baggage . . .oh, there aren't any.

Top choices: Others Taking Walt, Michael Kills Anna/Libby, Charlie dies (again), Bloop, Desmond's Constant, Locke in Coffin, Frozen Donkey Wheel/Ben, the Black Rock (my personal favorite).

Good luck to all today. Direct message me on Twitter Lottery_Ticket if you need poster buddy.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Anon
The Dharma Van doesn't glow in the dark. I own one. Only 3 left huh? I'm glad it's going to sell out. It's a really nice print.

Amy Lynn said...

Cloudy/rainy here in NYC, too. Glad we're getting a poster today. I need some cheer!!!!

Capcom said...

Hi Argies! Good work everyone, you never cease to impress me.

1) International clocks! Zort, you are the unltimately awesomest ARG host. :-)

2) I hear ya Anonymous, are we going to assume that they mean EDT? I guess we should just be on the ready, it's only an hour's diff.

3) I agree with you Sayidsgirl, the DST thing bugs me as well, there aren't as many farmers anymore (sadly) so what's the big deal. But if it serves a purpose for the UK that's a good thing. Didn't they fix the Halloween thing last year SG? At least they did in TN, they waited until after Halloween to put the clocks back. But if there was no DST, it would still be dark anyway. Oh well. Halloween isn't the same as it used to be either like most of the formerly safe things in the world. :-(

Looking forward to today's interaction with Argies worldwide! Even tho I mostly lurk for this one, I do enjoy reading everyone's comments.

Sandman90 said...

I figure we're due for another dud but I'm secretly hoping for greatness...

Sayid'sgirl said...

Capcom
Not here in my area. DST isn't until after Halloween now. It use to be before. Trick or Treat here is 6-8 pm So before when the time "fell" back it would be "like" 5-7 pm and it would still be light out and just getting dark at the end of trick or treat.

Now it's dark when they start and even darker when it ends.

Capcom said...

Heheh, today's National Grouch day.

LostinLondon said...

Yes! reveal day - so excited!

I am going to have to stay late at work because I won't make it home in time.

I hope it goes on sale quite soon after the reveal or I will be sat at my desk for hours! Don't know what i am going to tell my colleagues i am staying for...

Capcom said...

LostinLondon, say that you're working some over-time hours for extra money to pay for this poster. Oh wait.... :o)

Zort70 said...

By the way is anyone interested in talking in a chat room about the reveal today ?

Congested has been very kind in setting up an IRC channel for us and I've created a very basic Lost ARGs Chat website.

It would give us a more immediate feedback, but I don't want to make anyone feel left out if they can't access it from work or on a mobile device.

AndySchex said...

awesome zort!

Amy Lynn said...

I'll probably chat!

Sandman90 said...

I'll be heading to the chatroom. Sounds like a great plan.

thorsten said...

Chat sound good, Zort, but I am not allowed use the computer for anything other than entering the code!

Zort70 said...

Don't worry, I'll be manning the main post and comments as well.

jeremy said...

4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42

Frank said...

To Sayids and Anon: the Dharma Van does not glow in the dark but it *does* have cool blacklight-effects(with hidden imagery -cool!).

I hope this week's is superior to last week's print - I know the Hatch has proven popular with many, but in my opinion, it was a very weak entry...

Fingers crossed - maybe this will the the Mccarthy...

kiwi-lostie said...

Thanks heaps for the clocks Zort - are you able to do that for each reveal? Would be awesome! Up early n waitin...

Sayid'sgirl said...

I've never been part of a chat.
The how to register your nic and how to hide your ip is already to confusing so I'll just hang out here. echo echo echo I have a feeling I'll be all alone. Have a good time everyone.

Deneph said...

Morning all! Everyone limbering up their fingers? Let's get this party started!

Sandman90 said...

@sayid's girl - You're not alone. The chatroom has become a little too busy for me. Will also be hanging here.

thorsten said...

Hey Sayid'sgirl, I had not trouble, but my name was taken… which was kind of a surprise ;))

I can hang with you out here in the cold!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Ok thanks guys.

thorsten said...

33 people in there already!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Here's what I'm confused about.
The FAQ's say the register your nick enter comand /msg nickserv register enterpasswordhere enteremailhere then follow the instructions sent by email.

Where do I enter this command?
On the page where it says Welcom to LostARGs Chat choose a nick name? Or do I enter my nick name and go to the chat and enter this command somewhere there?

Sayid'sgirl said...

I just got home from running some errands and come back to this. :)
By the time I figure it out it will be over. lol

LotteryTicket said...

Sayid'sgirl
U still have ?s

LotteryTicket said...

no way just starting
go to link
type in Sayid'sgirl or make up another name. introduce yourself

thorsten said...

It's just 'Choose a nickname' and then the connect-button… then you're in.

In Safari on a Mac, that is…

Capcom said...

I'll be here with ya too Sayidsgirl!

Sayid'sgirl said...

LT yeah I know I can do that, but it still doesn't answer my qestiion on how to register my nick name with the commands provided in the faqs.

I also don't know where to enter the commands for hiding your ip.

I've never used a chat before other than at talkshoe and it's simple. Sorry I'm so dense.

thorsten said...

The air is much better out here!

LotteryTicket said...

I'm here too

and there

and at polo76life

and dcaapb

Sayid'sgirl said...

Thanks Capcom.

LotteryTicket said...

thorsten, no kidding SmokeMonsterChat

sayid'sgirl, cant' help you with hiding IP, just jump in

doesn't really matter as long as your a 88's blog

it's just keeping the one-liner comments from stacking up here and at DarkUFO

kiwi-lostie said...

LT my dialup (yes people, there are still places in the world you cant get it!) wont allow me the luxury of 4 open pages at once! haha Ill stick here...

Sayid'sgirl said...

LT Yeah I know I don't need the chat for the reveal. I just like the one liners that pile up as the reveal gets closer.

I'll just stay here talk to capcom and whoever else that shows up. I'm sure there's a few people who can't get into the chat from work.

Later

Zort70 said...

Hi all, back from work now, I've created a brand new blank(ish) post for the reveal.

NEW POST

jeremy said...

More than two is too many for me to keep track of!

kiwi-lostie said...

get broadband that is! cmon its early...

Mike said...

Relatively new to to the poster blog but i do have almost all of the prints so far. Can anyone tell me if they limit the order to 1 per person or if i would be able to order 2 prints?

Deneph said...

YouMightWantToConsiderHikingBoots.com

But the print's not coming up

Deneph said...

http://youmightwanttoconsiderhikingboots.com/dcpb/VIIII/

Cool print!

Amy Lynn said...

Pass.

Anonymous said...

Does anyone think this poster will be like Dan's other posters that contain a hidden design when you turn the lights off?

Example:

Amy Lynn said...

*is super disappointed*
