Poster 8 Reveal - Live in Buenos Aires 239

It seems that this poster URL reveal is a surprise one. A new clue was posted a few minutes ago to point to the corner of Luna and Uspallata in Parque Patricios.

I really like how this one has unfolded. Hopefully one of our BA comrades will run down there before Tyson posts pictures.

reAnimated said...

Do we have anyone in BA?

Sayid'sgirl said...

So how do we look at this location NOW? I'm not good with maps.

Or do we need to wait for someone in BA to go and look for us?

Zort70 said...

I wonder how we are suppoosed to find this URL ? Apart from someone going down there ?

I'm going to have to go out in a few mins, so I'll miss the URL reveal if someone goes down there.

Eugene said...

Maybe a webcam?


BA Web cams

Zort70 said...

Looking at a Google map, there is no street view for this location.

Zort70 said...

That webcam page won't load for me.

Adam G said...

How long do we wait now until the website is posted??????

Eugene said...

http://www.buenosaires.gov.ar/areas/obr_publicas/camaras/index.php?menu_id=22573&camara=



Here it is without the link.

feel_the_insanity said...

Just did the same thing Zort, also to no avail. Looks like its sitting at the computer and refreshing the DCPB website.

roxanna said...

It won't load for me either. It's funny/ironic/whatever that the image is named lostmap :)

Eugene said...

It's picky. But it loads

Deneph said...

Well what does it say Eugene?

Eugene said...

There are a bunch of web cams around Buenos Aires. None seem to be on that corner. It's very slow. I will let you know if I find anything.

Deneph said...

Thank you!

Eugene said...

These are the locations around the city that have web cams. So far, no luck.

Zort70 said...

Got to run now, back in a couple of hours.

Amy Lynn said...

Zort, you're gonna miss the poster!

roxanna said...

You have to admit, this is pretty exciting!

(but I wish they would hurry up!)

Ellen said...

xxoo

roxanna said...

@Gomerch
We are making some upgrades to our security on our stores. Sorry to all of those that are trying to buy right now. Will get it sorted soon

That's from Go Merch on Twitter. Could be why they haven't posted any URLs yet.

Scoutpost said...

Very cool...but now what?!

ShoxTP said...

Sorry for the inconvenience, but we are making some upgrades to our security system and you may experience some difficulty during checkout. Service should be restored to normal shortly. Thanks for your patience.



Thats from the merch site, if its saying the problem is in checkout then the url should still be ok. no?

JPL said...

Trying to open a few of the different web cam locations, but very slow. :(

Sayid'sgirl said...

I guess we F5 DCPB until it shows up. :)

Scoutpost said...

This reminds me of the glyph hunt in Times Square...memories.

Amy Lynn said...

Is it bad that I just googled Buenos Aires chat room to try and find someone to run over there? LOL

Congested said...

I'm in touch with someone who lives 5 blocks away. They are headed there right now. :D

It's a blogger from the neighborhood I contacted earlier this week. The blog is: parquedelospatricios.blogspot.com/

Scoutpost said...

Where are our Argeninian friends?

Maybe try the LU Argentinian fraternity in the LU forum.

Deneph said...

No, it's brilliant Amy!

Amy Lynn said...

Awesome job, Congested. Thanks!

reAnimated said...

Way to go Congested.

Congested said...

@Amy: LOL I did that 2 nights ago when I was researching Parque Patricios.

Scoutpost said...

Yea Congested!

Trial Attorneys said...

I just have this feeling that judging by their work and the image on the map, this poster is going to be very cartooney!

Eugene said...

Thanks Congested!!!

Sayid'sgirl said...

That's cool congested!k
I've got to go pick up my daughter at school in about ten minutes.

I hope I don't miss it. If I do I hope it's not something I'd like.

JPL said...

Justthinking posted on the LU web site to see if anyone from the Argentian Frat House/Sorority would take a look. SMART!

Scoutpost said...

Feelin your pain Sayid's Girl! I'll probably be here for the reveal, but will probably be in transit when it goes up for sale!

Scoutpost said...

I can't believe Maven is not here! I tried to see if she's on FB...wouldn't you know the one time she isn't!!

(n) said...

this is intense...

lots of refreshing goin' on

jeremy said...

I'm sure everyone is just waiting for Congested to hear back from his Argentinian friend.

Amy Lynn said...

I feel like I should write a song called F5

Trial Attorneys said...

I looked at DBPH's website and tried to find a twitter account, but nothing!

Trial Attorneys said...

Eugene said...

I sent DBPH an e-mail. I'll let you know if they respond.

Congested said...

Hopefully Gabriel (the blogger) will be back soon. I'll tweet and post the link here as soon as he's got it (if he gets it.)

He's not even a fan of Lost as far as I can tell so it's extremely nice of him to be doing this for us and we should find a way to thank him one way or another. :)

Scoutpost said...

I checked the Argentinian LU frat forum, no one is responding to Justhinking's comment about the release of the clue.

Mandazoid said...

They might be running down there, Scout.

*hopes*

LotteryTicket said...

what's congested tweet

Congested said...

@AudiblyLost

But I will post it here first since this is where people are looking.

Cristina said...

How long does it usually take for the poster to go for sale after the url is revealed?

John-Paul said...

about 30 minutes right?

LotteryTicket said...

minutes.

what is image behind map?

Scoutpost said...

Yeah that's been about the norm.

I'm gonna miss either the reveal or the on sale time 'cause I have to get my son to preschool.

Run faster Gabriel!

Deneph said...

It's taken 15 minutes and it's taken an hour. I guess it just depends.

Scoutpost said...

LT I think it's a blown up picture of the same little guy that's on the map.

Cristina said...

Woah, should leave to the supermarket like right now so I can be back soon enough! O__o

My credit card is praying: please, let it be something she doesn´t like...please... lol

Sayid'sgirl said...

Yeah usually.

LotteryTicket said...

can we find this little animated guy and his website. photo posted there would be my guess. like google

Anonymous said...

Hope it's not as cartoonish as the little guy on the map...

Anonymous said...

This certainly is a strange way to release the URL.

Mandazoid said...

If you think about it, just because DGPH did the mural doesn't mean that they did the poster. It might not be cartoonish at all!

Anonymous said...

It is.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Anything yet? F5ing F5ing F5ing lol

Anonymous said...

It is.

Amy Lynn said...

Run, Gabriel!

Geoffrey said...

Can someone tell me why when I go to DCPB I dont even see the final clue yet?? I am in Phoenix and I felt like this happens all the time, is it a timezone thing possibly?? anyone else have this problem??

Scoutpost said...

anticipation...an-ti-ci-pa-a-tion...he's making me wait.

MidnightBarber said...

my guess is the little cartoon is whats gonna make it obvious to the people whove followed this.whoever is running down to look for the url....if he isnt a fan of lost tell them to look out for the little cartoon guy.

Kabooki said...

I'm in Phoenix as well and I am seeing it just fine

Scoutpost said...

no I'm in Phoenix and I can see it. Try going out of the page and going back in, or going through the hub

Geoffrey said...

hmmmm weird, I dont know why I cant see it then!!

Sayid'sgirl said...

I don't think it's strange. It's just we're here in the US and not in Argentia.

If it was in the US there'd be several people there already. Maybe there are we just don't know it. We're on the other end this time.

Frank said...

what inside info do you have, anonymous, that tels you the poster is cartoony?

Scoutpost said...

Dang! hey there all you Phoenix people!

Kabooki said...

Hey lookit all the Phoenix fans! Maybe they will do something closer to home :D

Geoffrey said...

yea weird even going thru hub I cant see it...going to refresh browser

Geoffrey said...

Yea hopefully!! Make it TEMPE!!! We've had a U of A release lets make an ASU one!! haha

Anonymous said...

I can only imagine that the VAST majority of the fans of these posters are not in Argentina.

Anonymous said...

hope the next clue take place in Mexico, there's a lot of fans in latinoamerica

Scoutpost said...

That's right! Go Sun Devils!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Argentina sorry for the bad spelling. Typing too fast.

MattLauer said...

The URL isn't posted yet Geoffrey if that's what you were asking.

kabooki said...

Won't lie was kinda surprised it wasn't in Tempe...sadly as much as I love LOST I did want to drive two hours for a bookmark :/

Geoffrey said...

Oh sweet a refresh gave me the map!! About time!! haha

waffle said...

Wow. This was sudden. Guess I'm not accomplishing much in the work for a little while.

Scoutpost said...

We met a guy from Brazil at Comic Con...he said there's a huge LOST following down there. Just apparently not LOSTARG followers. :0

Geoffrey said...

haha I love LOST too, but having to go to U of A, being a student at ASU, it felt like a conflict of interest, so I will continue to hope for an ASU launch haha

TomRex said...

I still can't get the map to show. Not in FF, IE or Chrome. Weird.

Geoffrey said...

New question, anyone know why only 200 of these are being sold and not all?? Are the rest going to crew/cast/etc?? I REALLY wish I could grab a Locke or Crash site one...I found the site too late for those though :(

Geoffrey said...

also off topic here, but how do you refresh this little window on a mac?? I dont know the button combo for that haha anyone know?

Scoutpost said...

TomRex...you're really not missing anything if it makes you feel better.

I imagine the last 100 of the 300 are going to people associated with LOST or ABC, etc.

Trial Attorneys said...

Did anyone think that the website may actually be written on the map somewhere? Instead of a street name?

ShoxTP said...

I bet one of the 100 goes to Paul Scheer.

Steve said...

my random guess is that the last frame on the site will be poster sets. Purely a guess though.

Congested said...

Geoffrey: Apple-R

Amy Lynn said...

TomRex, what's your email address?

Geoffrey said...

Thanks for the tip Congested!!

TomRex said...

treasor@gmail.com

I know I'm not missing much - just odd it's not showing up.

Sayid'sgirl said...

This reminds me of TLE. Did you already say that Scoutpost?

Amy Lynn said...

Sent, TomRex.

Congested said...

Here's the image for those having trouble: http://yfrog.com/2cframe8mapj

Lesley said...

@Geoffrey. F5 works for me on iMac running Firefox. You can always point your cursor to the refresh/reload button on your browser if F5 is not supported.

Geoffrey said...

how fast are ppl pickin up these first copies? are they doing it even if they dislike the poster purely for the prize that comes with it you think?? hah

Anonymous said...

I don't buy a poster I don't like. Prize or no prize.

Scoutpost said...

People are picking them up the second they go live (actually before, but let's not get into that again). How fast they sell out or if they sell out at all depends on the poster. The Locke one sold out in about an hour.

TomRex said...

I know that I had decided to order all of them regardless. I just got lucky.

Amy Lynn said...

Where'd you get that?

Scoutpost said...

Anon- how did you get that? I feel myself getting ticked off again.

LotteryTicket said...

legal or illegal?

Geoffrey said...

oh COOL ONE!!!

Deneph said...

oooh! I like it!

Deneph said...

Thank you Anon!

Scoutpost said...

LT that's what I want to know. We're always waiting for somebody who we know is there to report only to have someone else pop in and give us the URL with no explanation of how they get it.

Amy Lynn said...

The images JUST went up a second ago on DCAAPB.

It's an easy skip for me. Too bizarre. :)

MattLauer said...

It's on DCPB now.

roxanna said...

I love it!

Martyn said...

OMG that is beautiful! Currently seeking permission off of my girlfriend to buy it. Really hope it's as shiny as it looks!

Congested said...

Well I still haven't heard from our friend in Parque Patricios. I'll let you know if I do.

reAnimated said...

Yeah I like the gears and all in the background.

Nate said...

I like the mural better than the poster!

roxanna said...

I like how it looks like the Eye of the Island

Congested said...

The hub has pictures of the mural and site.

Deneph said...

The design of the island is an interesting concept.

Mandazoid said...

Me, too, Nate!

LotteryTicket said...

Thank you DGPH. Will look in depth after crazy poster stuff done.

Amy Lynn said...

Here's Kevin Tong's website: http://www.tragicsunshine.com/

RobPerrin said...

Like it, but not quite enough to buy.

Congested said...

I'm guessing the gears are supposed to represent the timer clock.

feel_the_insanity said...

I guess I don't get this one. What's with all the gears in the background? Why is there only a piece of the island? I get the "eye of the island" reference, but Locke is indistinguishable and the island is floating!

Sayid'sgirl said...

I like this one. hmmm

Amy Lynn said...

Another possible "error"... weren't both Jack and Locke there when this happened?

roxanna said...

@feel_the_insanity

I think that's the part of the Island that imploded.

jeremy said...

i think this takes place right after boone dies, before jack knows about the hatch

reAnimated said...

Not when the light came on. Jack was operating on Boone and Kate was delivering Claire's baby

AndySchex said...

Let the refreshing begin!

Shenna said...

Guys...these aren't illustrations for the show. Artists are going to be creative things. I think people are a little too weird thinking it has to look exactly how the show looked? Let the artist come up with his/her own interpretation. I love this one! Going to buy

Amy Lynn said...

Thanks, that's right. :)

Congested said...

@Amy: No, this is from Deus Ex Machina when Locke is banging on the hatch window after Boone got injured. Then the hatch light goes on. I cut together the key events of that day (minus Bernard on the radio) in this YouTube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JdKMIRHWS4

Amy Lynn said...

Thanks, Congested!

CreedFeed said...

How much is shipping on the posters?

feel_the_insanity said...

I guess the thing that really gets me is the gears in the background, what purpose do they serve?

semicolwin said...

one thing that always bothered me about this scene...well, really about when Sawyer sees the light (and Kate helping Claire give birth) in Season 5, is that when this first occurs after Boone gets injured, there is hardly any light coming from the hatch (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrYH9oJF-_I), whereas in Season 5, and this poster, they show the light shooting into the sky...this only happened at the start of Season 2 when Locke lowers Kate into the already opened hatch (as more light was allowed to escape the opening). Anyone else ever thought about this?

Amy Lynn said...

Shipping for me on Smokey was $11

Amy Lynn said...

Anyone have an episode title for "runs a very tight operation"?

feel_the_insanity said...

Lafleur

Congested said...

In Namaste Dr. Change says to Jack:

DR. CHANG: Ah, yes. Good man, LaFleur. Runs a very tight operation. [Sets down clipboard] [Sighs] I'm sorry for the disorganization. The woman who was supposed to be processing you in had a baby last night. I got pulled out of my lab. I... ah, here it is... your job assignment. [Sighs] You've been assigned to the Shed.

(via Lostpedia)

roxanna said...

Namaste

DR. CHANG: Uh... the shuttle from the sub. Who was your driver?
JACK: Oh, that was, uh... um... Mr. LaFleur.
DR. CHANG: Ah, yes. Good man, LaFleur. Runs a very tight operation.

Amy Lynn said...

Thanks, folks. Should've known that one. Namaste is one of the best episodes.

Anonymous said...

Didn't Pierre Change say this in Namaste?

feel_the_insanity said...

Oops, my bad.

Anyone kinda wish the artists that did the mural did a poster?

Can anyone see what I think is writing at the bottom?

Mandazoid said...

Lars...I'd really love to see a "Not Penny's Boat" poster.

Congested said...

I figured what the hell and bought it. Not sure it fits on my wall or with the other two I bought though... 1267

Amy Lynn said...

Congsted, which is the third that you have, besides this one and the foot?

Mandazoid said...

Salvoh on DarkUFO has 1170!

Anyone got their Smokey poster yet? When did it arrive? I haven't received mine yet!

Congested said...

@Amy: Locke's Secret

Amy Lynn said...

Smokey got to NYC yesterday.

LostinLondon said...

Hi all,

Long-time lurker waiting for London reveal! Order 1249 on this one. Also, bought the four toed statue earlier today (about 5 hours ago) since my husband said he liked it and that was order 1166 if that helps anyone work anything out!

Congested said...

@Trial: Some people have gotten theirs, yes.

waffle said...

So that's at least 85 sold already. And I guess there's about 230 left between the 4 unsold posters.

So out of curiosity, did anyone try the back door?
