The Polar Bear - Roundup 284

As we sail into the uncharted waters of Frame 16 and how it "Will be found", lets take a moment to revisit last night.

The 44th Ward Twitter site was updated with a pictue of our losties queuing.

It has been said before but it is going to be said again a huge thanks to all that attended and reported back it sounded like a fun evening which lasted long after the reveal.

The reveal as we found out last night was on a napkin with the face of Pierre Chang / Edgar Halliwax / Marvin Candle on it. The hub page was updated with a picture of the napkin shortly after the reveal and poster sell out.

This fantastic picture by Anne is of LotteryTicket and ObFuSc8 at the reveal having a great time surfing for more clues.

You can see more pictures from Anne using this link











One person at the reveal, Valentin_108, managed to purchase a poster on their iPhone, which given the frantic nature of doing so is no mean feat.

One last mention has to go to LotteryTicket who was sending back pictures of the food at 44th Ward which was making everyone not at the reveal very hungry.

Entering The Barracks 82

Here is The Barracks, what more can I say ? There has been a fair amount of criticism about this poster saying that it is too simple, and a lot more detail would have made it a better poster. I personally would have liked to have seen more of the houses.

The style of the poster with the almost photographic backdrop and the more cartoon style house seem to jar with one another at first glance, but as the poster is observed the two styles merge again and seem to compliment each other.

This first picture is from Lisa, and I wouldn't recommend using rocks to hold down the corners :


We also have another couple of other pictures from MEL and TheHoJo


Part of the comment that Nate Duval left us, which was posted in full in the poster 13 roundup post, was this :


Looking at this picture of the barracks from the TV show it looks very similar, although interestingly this is almost a mirror image of the poster.




Notice how there is some hatching on the picture, this is very similar to how a newspaper photograph looks, I'm not sure if this is deliberate or a consequence of the printing process used.

These closeups were sent to us from Patmc

and finally, as usual some signatures (courtesy of Lisa, Patmc, and Dennis)

Frame 15 Clue 2 - DHARMA Sandwich 98

As promised in the first purchaser letter a new clue is given after Thanksgiving, it is a DHARMA logo with a sandwich in it.


The only thing that springs to mind immediately is the Dharama Buns Sandwich Co. in Lowell, Massachusetts.

The other possibility that has cropped up a couple of times, and fits in with the 44 clue is
Grill 44
in New York.

The Unsomnambulist has told us that another potential reveal location is The 44th Ward, the self proclaimed grilled cheese funhouse in Chicago. Their Twitter site was updated a couple of days ago to say Pete Wentz would be dining there, and as we know Pete has been involved in the project before.



Thanks to Jason for being the first to notify us via email.

Lost Season 5 Extras: The H Bomb - Making up for LOST Time 14



Buena Vista Home Entertainment has sent over a new video from LOST: The Complete Fifth Season. In the clip titled "The H Bomb - Making up for LOST Time", Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof comment on the idea of changing the future.

Lost university Tutoring Session 2 11

The second Lost University Tutoring Session was made available today, here are some screenshots from it :

Frame 15 Clue 1 - 44 181

Just when I thought it was safe to go to sleep for a few days a new clue is given for hte 15th frame, remember this is the last frame that is Lost.


There are lots of theories flying around in the comments and a couple via email. After reading all of these it appears that the favourite theory is that Australia is the next reveal location.

Some reasons for this, the 44 is in a Yellow / Gold colour, the 44th Parrallel South is a line of latitude that runs through Australia (just about).

Click on the image to go to the Wikipedia article
Thanks to LotteryTicket for telling about the new clue first in the comments at around 1:24am EST, 8:24pm PST.
