88-Keys:

Uh, yeah! My name is 88-Keys & that’s the name you’ll see on the manifest on Ocean Flight 815. We’ve been Lost for a few weeks now. I don’t think anybody’s coming for us. Man… I remember this like it was yesterday; When I lost my bag on day one.

1st Verse:

I woke up from a concussion
With sand on my feet
No futher discussion
I’m a son of a beach

Where’s my briefcase?
It was in reach
I gotta drill these people
Just like a prez before he gets impeached

Let me go straight to the liar & pack rat
Scratch that
Take it to the man
With the desire for that hatch

Locke – Don’t give me that
Philosophical crap
I know is gonna spew
From you esophagus track

Just tell me where my box is
Before I let everybody know
You couldn’t use your limbs
Where your sock is

Save it!
I’ll just ask Sawyer
Now let’s face it
He’ll say he didn’t take it

So now I gotta go to Kate
To sweet talk Sawyer
Just to get my briefcase
For a kiss like cheap dates

Sawyer doesn’t have it
Nobody said they grabbed it
Now they’re all acting like
I’m chasing down a white rabbit like Jack did

Chorus:

My bag got lost
So now I’m looking for it
My bag wasn’t found
I got tooken for it – Lost
Have you see it
Anywhere around here? – Lost
Tell me if you see it
When the ground clears

I’m not taking orders from Jack
Like I’m his soldier
I don’t trust Katie
As far as my arms could throw her
Expect the unexpected
When they do drop bombs so
YouMightWantToConsiderHikingBoots.com

2nd Verse:

Gotta investigate this matter further
This madam that I never heard of
Using words
So absurd to

Me & everybody else
Except for Shannon
Distress calls
Who got balls like cannon?

To tell me where my briefcase is
How ’bout you Michael?
You know us brothers gotta
Stick together

I tried to play the race card
But my plan faultered
The only one he’s cares about
His lil’ man Walter

That’s the kid
Who could
Make reality
Alter

I ain’t messing with him
So I slid
Back to Shannon
Just to see if I could find Sayid

And he’s over there
Talking to Boone
Let me see if I could get closer
And get the scoop like a spoon

I heard him say,
“Stay the Hell away from my sister!”
Mr. Overprotective brother
Not only does he lover her but he used to kiss her… Under the covers

Chorus:

My bag got lost
So now I’m looking for it
My bag wasn’t found
I got tooken for it – Lost
Have you see it
Anywhere around here? – Lost
Tell me if you see it
When the ground clears

I’m not taking orders from Jack
Like I’m his soldier
I don’t trust Katie
As far as my arms could throw her
Expect the unexpected
When they do drop bombs so
YouMightWantToConsiderHikingBoots.com

3rd Verse:

Now I searched all over the island
For my stuff
Man it’s rough
When these dead bodies are piled in

There’s only so much
That Jack can do
With polar bears running through the forrest
Attacking you

Now let’s not forget Claire
She needs the prenatal
Care – Make the wrong move
And Charlie makes it fatal?

I’m not really here for friends
Just my bag
I don’t care about you, your drugs
Or Drive Shaft

Now why did Sun laugh
If she only speaks Korean?
There’s something she ain’t telling
There’s something Jin ain’t seeing

She making ginseng
Just to poison human beings
And everybody on the cave & beach
Disagreeing

I should’ve asked Hurley
Early
‘Cause he took a head count
He knows everybody on the island

I described my baggage
He said he knows who had it
Now we gotta figure out
Why Ethan’s name wasn’t added to the manifest

Chorus:

My bag got lost
So now I’m looking for it
My bag wasn’t found
I got tooken for it – Lost
Have you see it
Anywhere around here? – Lost
Tell me if you see it
When the ground clears

I’m not taking orders from Jack
Like I’m his soldier
I don’t trust Katie
As far as my arms could throw her
Expect the unexpected
When they do drop bombs so

Nice new Dharma symbol

thorsten said...

The love Polo in Ann Arbor!

Zort70 said...

Hi all, ready for some poster action ?

Anonymous said...

I love this part. Even if I have only bought one poster (though I regret not buying the hatch when I had the slim opportunity), this waiting, anticipation is fun. It kills me. But it's fun.

Ellen said...

This is much cleaner than the chat room messiness. :)

Capcom said...

LOL, I was just thinking this a.m. that all this "anguish" (over not knowing whether to buy or not to buy, hold out for more, beat the clock, staying home for the reveal, etc.) is wearing me out and I'm getting kind of tired of it all. :o)

Zort70 said...

Capcom, I know what you mean, but I jusr keep coming back for more.

LotteryTicket said...

just took a screen shot

wow

all crazzzzzy

Dharma polo team. nice. There's a horse on the island. why not.

kiwi-lostie said...

I missed the hatch too - followed that reveal for the whole time - days - only to finish night shift, go to sleep for 3 hours, wake up n find that Ive missed the whole reveal n poster sold out. Gutted!

Sandman90 said...

I'm getting hungry but having trouble refreshing and holding a sandwich at the same time.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Anon
I agree this is the best part of this whole thing waiting and wondering.

Ellen said...

Capcom, I hear you. Until I discovered LOST Args and Dark UFO's threads, I was happy on my own waiting for the reveal. Got them all except the Crash, and that was because I was really dumb about the time announced.

Zort70 said...

Sandman, get a nodding bird like Homer Simpson got in that episode where he had to work from home.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Oh come on Sandman90. I can hold a plate in my lap a glass in my hand and still F5 lol
Of course that could be why I have so many typos. lol

Sandman90 said...

LOL! Yes, that's exactly what I need.

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?

back_gammon said...

I hope this is a great print of Ben. I'll be over the moon happy and I can stop following this thing so closely.

dylansdad said...

If it's a cool one, I hope you can only place one order, so there will still be some left for slow people like me.

Zort70 said...

Mike, people have said you can order one and then log out and order another.

Sandman90 said...

@back-gammon: Haven't seen you in awhile. I agree - Ben would be fantastic.

(n) said...

hey everyone! excited for the new poster reveal :) woo hoo!

knightsintodreams said...

do they take paypal? or just cards :P
they've never sold out like in minutes right? i have an irrational fear that i'm going to take so long typing in my info that it'll be gone lol (nub)

Ellen said...

Mike, the only way to order more than one is to do an order, exit the registration area, then go back in and do another order. You may even have to use a different credit card ::shrug::

LostinLondon said...

woo - t-10 mins!

I have my headphones ready in case it is audio/video

Zort70 said...

Just cards, no Paypal option.

The fastest selling one took an hour to sell out, so unless it is so fantastic that we all press buy at the same time, you should have enough time.

Sayid'sgirl said...

ooo good idea.

RobPerrin said...

The tension is building...

John-Paul said...

Happy Reveal Day Everyone! Any guesses on the subject?

Mike said...

thanks for the answers. I have only ever bought one of each, but, a fellow dmb poster collector is also collecting these and he is in school all day and wont have the chance to order one. I am not one of those stupid flippers looking to buy them all up and then sell them for a profit. I cant stand those people.

Zort70 said...

58 users on the chat now, it's scrolling faster than I can read at times !

dylansdad said...

I would like to see "The Others" or "The Black Rock."

Anonymous said...

I'm not even a Ben fan (well who isn't really a Ben fan, I just mean he isn't my favorite, if you get what I mean) but I think it's FAR time we see some OTHERs related posters. Yeah that was me sounding all pushy and entitled.

Ari Cohen said...

the poster i really want is one that damon and carlton showed in a tour of the lost offices, had all the lost characters in it. I have never been able to find it.

dylansdad said...

So how "approximate" is "approximately 1pm"?

jeremy said...

I suggested this the other day, but I found another of his that works.

Dan McCarthy for Adam and Eve

Sayid'sgirl said...

My phone's ringing should I answer it? :)

Eugene said...

I vote NO, Sayids Girl.

Zort70 said...

Sayid'sGirl, noooooooooooo

Anonymous said...

Approximate is approximate.. if it was any more accurate than that it wouldn't be approximate anymore.

Man, that blog is getting slammed - started to load very slow.

Sayid'sgirl said...

lol Let the machine get it. Was a telemarketer ugg

Zort70 said...

Nothing yet, I make it time now.

Anonymous said...

bah - now the waiting game. I've got 1pm here.

thorsten said...

mailed you a chat header, Zort.
Check it out later ;))

dylansdad said...

Somebody owes me a new F5 button...

knightsintodreams said...

maybe he's gonna be sneaky and just edit something thats all ready on the page?

If this guy had an ad banner he would be making bank right now.

knightsintodreams said...

Boo said...

Anon I love your response to approximate. It is indeed how approximate works. Though I'd like to think approximate is exactly when I am ready and i was ready an hour ago. So... NOW... ?

jeremy138 said...

It will be posted on the polo67life.com correct?

Ellen said...

Email...waiting for the reveal!

jeremy said...

you have to search for "baggage claim"

Anonymous said...

they have this page up for all of the URL's they have registered to prevent people from seeing them ahead of time. In this case though, it looks like they didn't post the real content in time for the reveal.

Eugene said...

youmightwanttoconsiderhikingboots.com. It's in the rap.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I just keep getting go merch

Nate said...

Gah why is the link not sending me to anything. I want to see.

"I woke up from a concussion

scottbphilp said...

Ack poster site isn't up yet. 3:39AM down here. Sooo tired. Anyone like the song?

Zort70 said...

Love the song

Walkindude125 said...

This quote is from Episode 5.06, "316". Kate says this to Jack while he packs for the Island

Sandman90 said...

Any ideas. I, too, am only going to GO MERCH.

LostinLondon said...

Ha - I love how he raps youmightwanttoconsiderhikingboots.com

Anonymous said...

No, seriously - this song is horrid.

I gotta drill these people just like a prez before he gets impeahced? Come on, that is such a stretch it is ridiculous.

Half the lyrics are just utter shit forced to fit in a rhyme scheme.

Sayid'sgirl said...

You're not going to believe this. F5ed was going to post it was up. The phone rang I'm listening to the song it's my husband on the phone, I have to answer it. I step on my headphone cord it's long. pull it out can't hear the song then get it plugged it back in just to get the tail end of the url.

Get it hear and now it won't work!!! lol

Anonymous said...

The poster is probably based on "The Oceanic Six"

jeremy said...

post is on the main page of 88-keys' blog now.
It wasn't showing up for a while there.

lonely island on site

knightsintodreams said...

i started giggling uncontrollably

Patmc said...

That song is going right onto my phone! Awesome!

Still waiting like everyone else for the GoMerch site to start working correctly...

Even though we're all anxious for the poster... for the record, I still believe Kawnar has the best
Lost song out of anyone else.

One interesting thing: the holder page shows Gomerch's association with Fall Out Boy and Decaydence.

Wow, that's a really nice one, but I'll have to pass I guess...maybe.

ohmigod - amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love it

I found it by mimicking the link style of previous posters.

OMG STEVE GOT IT RIGHT!!!! weird what are they saying?

Finally. And it IS Dan McCarthy. YEAH!!!

Zort70 said...

Boo said...

Initials thoughts, what is that little cartoon bubble? Well I know what it is. But I would LOVE it if it didn't have the cartoon bubble. But I feel I don't have time to wait.

scottbphilp said...

And it's up! Don't think this one's for me though. Need a couple of minutes to think about it.

dylansdad said...

http://youmightwanttoconsiderhikingboots.com/dcpb/VIIII/McCarty-detail.gif

jeremy said...

what is (i assume) rousseau saying...I can't get the detail to load

Anonymous said...

this is a disappointing poster to me. The island is the primary subject of this piece, and yet it has nothing to distinguish it from any other island.

Zort70 said...

Click on the picture for a closeup of the speech bubble

Capcom said...

I would have liked it more if it were greenish, but this is very nice.

Walkindude125 said...

i love Dan McCarthy's work. I have another on of his hanging in my living room and he does the best job with landscapes!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Thanks Steve and Taz
Hmm Don't like it. Oh well.

Patmc said...

Can anyone read what they are saying in the poster? It says click to see detailed image... but it doesn't change. ???

feel_the_insanity said...

what's the quote? can anyone get the link to work?

Anonymous said...

Also, someone at DCPB needs to leanr how roman numerals work.

9 is not VIIII.....

ytimetravel said...

It's cool but not awesome.

Ari Cohen said...

they are saying in english:


I am alone on this island they are all dead

Steven said...

hahahaha. the roman numeral for 9 is definately not VIIII. awesome.

LostinLondon said...

The bubble says
Je suis seul sur cet ile ..ils sont tous morts

what rousseau says on her transmission

my absolute favourite so far!!!

Walkindude125 said...

notice the Radio Tower in the top right?

Capcom said...

Jeremy, try right-click and select open new page or tab.

jeremy said...

...anyone speak french?

Anonymous said...

the quote is in french, someone posted a link to it above.

I am alone on this island they are all dead

Frank said...

THIS POSTER IS INCREDIBLE!

jeremy said...

thanks!

Anonymous said...

I love it!

waffle said...

I got the detail to load by opening it in another tab..."Je suis seul sur cette ile...ils sont tous morts".

DAN MCCARTHY. YESSSSSS. Not quite what I was expecting, but still cool. Also at 18 x 30 a little different size.

dylansdad said...

"Je suis seul sur cette ille... ils sont tous morts."

Which I believe translates to, "I am alone on this island... they are all dead."

Ellen said...

I'm in now, ON SALE SOON. Yes, I speak French. Hold on..

Anonymous said...

Very, very weak in my opinion.

LostinLondon said...

I haven't been so excited since the Crash poster - am so glad i stayed late at work and my friend cancelled dinner plans!!!!

Steve said...

I tried IX before VIIII. I really like this and love McCarthy's work already so this is great.

knightsintodreams said...

ooOoOOhh that's kinda rad...........
erm........
GAH FINE ok i think i'm buying it.....not quite as amazing as the hatch ;_; but it's still subtle~
my first one yay X3

Derrick Flobot said...

The absolute best one YET! Made me come out of lurking.

jeremy said...

The print is beautiful, but it doesn't grab me the same way The Hatch did.

On the up-side, it's nice that the poster has sayid in it.

LostinLondon said...

thanks steve!! great working out

Ari Cohen said...

how long does it usually take for them to go on sale

Anonymous said...

Translated to "I'm on the island... they are all dead" I think.

Boo said...

I'm getting it as soon as I can. Although I do wish it was a different color. It doesn't strike me as a "LOST" color. But I feel I'm being nitpicky. Yeah, getting it.

Frank said...

translates to

"I am alone on this island… they are all dead"

Ellen said...

"I am alone on this island. They are all dead."

Zort70 said...

NEW POST

dylansdad said...

Would you need a custom frame for this one?

Frank said...

Fantastic poster, great use of space in composition, great mood! This will look amazing framed and on a wall!

Ari Cohen said...

i think so, 18x30, i am finding little to no matches for that size online

kristaps194 said...

Now I will get my rapper/basketbolist friend to LOST :D
Great rap btw ;)

I really like the rap (hate to admit it). I listened to the whole thing!
