Frame 14 - Eyeball Eater In Escrow 271

Two new clues, first off was the fairly gruesome sounding Eyeball Eater, and then later on the In Escrow clue as well.



Eyeball eater could refer to the practice of eating Eyeballs after fishing trips. jdcurtis provided this link to some articles mentioning this practice.

Lottery Ticket also mentioned this article about KEREOPA TE RAU who was a Maori warrior - He was also nicknamed 'Kai whatu', "the eye ball eater"

More information on In Escrow when we have it.

Thanks to Lottery Ticket and Mike for telling us about the new clues first.

How does the eyeball eating fit with hawaii auctions?!

kiwilostie said...

Hey I was first at something - Im special!

ObFuSc8 said...

No idea.

Befuddled.

Patmc said...

Two clues in about 6 hours??? Maybe the place of the reveal could be a boat that is for sale or something? Or it could just be that I should go to bed...

justanothersky said...

Frankly, I would have thought what we've been doing in the past months is already that-- as GoMerch is actually a 3rd party that collects the money; but the goods are all shipped from Gallery1988 (RMA).

The only difference is that we don't have an "inspection" period...

ObFuSc8 said...

Found this: Web Auctions Hawaii

Still no connection to EYEBALL EATERS yet though.

mrtibbs said...

WHAT Two clues? I've only just woken up!

escrow could be auction related I guess:
Documents, real estate, money, or securities deposited with a neutral third party (the escrow agent) to be delivered upon fulfillment of certain conditions, as established in a written agreement.

justanothersky said...

If it's only some sort of web reveal, then fine.
But seriously, I would think twice to sign up on another online auction / e-commerce site & hand over my c.card details for just 1 poster (even if it's a LOST poster)...

mrtibbs said...

Maybe because the clues came back to back they are an anagram. I've not woken up properly yet, but here's one solution.

aerobically sweetener

ObFuSc8 said...

"I'm sure something that limited would sell way above it's asking price."

Also indicates auction.

So still wondering, what's with EYEBALL EATER?

mrtibbs said...

silent is in there too leaving these letters.

yebal eaer e crow

I need some coffee

ChrisL said...

Morning. Jeez that was a busy night for you all! Great to see that first purchase letter - thanks to Joe. Looking like a Friday reveal then.

ObFuSc8 said...

Honolulu Fish Auction

sophieBOYY said...

Yup... These could be the weirdest clues ever.
Better be a good poster ;]



-xx-

ObFuSc8 said...

I think there's also a fish auction in Hilo.

jeremy said...

Just putting this in the mix,there is a place called Dole Plantation (Hawaii's complete pineapple experience) Contains the worlds largest maze...now that would be a clever place to hide a url...

Patmc said...

The more I look at it... the more I think that "In Escrow" is actually a logo for something. A club, a band... something.

Peter said...

@Patmc Looks like the Nintendo logo to me, but not sure how that'd fit. Also the typeface is different.

ObFuSc8 said...

Yeah, I see that too Patmc, but can't find anything.

Check Out the Honolulu Fish Auction

mrtibbs said...

I think that it represents what you'd see on an estate agents board where a property was in escrow.
http://www.goldenempireescrow.com/Portals/0/inescrow.jpg

ObFuSc8 said...

Peter -- It does look similar to the Nintendo logo. Weird. But shape around the IN ESCROW is mor of a rectangle with rounded corners while Nintendo is an elongated oval. You're right about the font difference too.

Seems like they meant for it to look like a stamp. I think mrtibbs is right, but then real estate is even harder to fit into this one.

Seemingly more befuddled by the minute.

justanothersky said...

Yeah most of the images I came across online, tagged with "in escrow", are also property related. And that just makes the clue even more intriguing...

Added all 3 clues together: Pineapple + Eyeball eater + In Escrow = seafood restaurant for sale? lol J/K.

ObFuSc8: that article on Fish Auction is interesting.

mrtibbs said...

You can use an escrow service in an auction, especially if the item you are bidding for is valuable. I suppose if the venue of an auction, was also one of the auction items, that would be a form of escrow I guess. If the place was a dump, you wouldn't be parting with any cash!
If Darlton was involved with the charity auction, I hope they'd be offering a walk on part in season 6.

Zort70 said...

Rose is a word within Escrow ?

ObFuSc8 said...

I don't think this reveal willbe at the silent auction. It's on the 22nd (SUN) which now seems too late, with 2 clues so close together today. Besides, there's no mention of golf in the clue and of course EYEBALL EATER doesn't fit.

Zort70 said...

There is a twon called Escrow in the Terry Pratchett Discworld novels.

Zort70 said...

Also in Terry Pratchetts Hogfather there is a Raven that is partial to eating Eyeballs.

ObFuSc8 said...

Zort -- how about a pineapple, or Hawaii?

thorsten said...

Well, IN ESCROW is an anagram for Score Win…
not that that amounts to anything ;))

But the angle and border reminds me of something stamped on paper…

Patmc said...

I tried looking for boats with a name of "In Escrow"... no luck there either.

I'm off to bed. I expect you all to have some answers for me when I wake up... LOL!

Good night and good luck! (wasn't that a movie?)

thorsten said...

It was. George Clooney, black and white… 50s TV ringing a bell?

Justin said...

Wow 2 clues??

Am I the only one that's happy that this set of clues is more difficult? :)

We've been figuring these out as soon as the first clue comes out in most cases. Glad to see something more challenging

Ellen said...

email...:)
xxoo

Martyn said...

I agree Justin, this will make the reveal more of a revalation rather a confirmation.

I personally can't wait for this ARG to end, it constantly makes me late for work just sitting Reading all the comments made while I was sleeping. I had to cycle my ass off to get to the station in time. Just made my train.

Who am I kidding, I'd gladly pull a sicky to catch up on all your comments.

thorsten said...

The arg was a great thing to spend the time before season six for me. All the drama, the friends and foes, the twists and turns and rattlesnakes in the mailboxes…

Lisa said...

I thought I told then no clues while I was sleeping lol Ok, I'm up, clue away. Eye ball eater- Yuck !!

Lisa said...

and we woke up to no heat- it's 25F out side ! burrrrr. Have to0 fix that heater this morning or I'll freeze !

thorsten said...

Good Morning, Lisa, get warm soon!
;))

Trial Attorneys said...

My thought is this - what is the real name of the boat Desmond and Penny were on, not the show name but the real name? That boat may be for sale at auction this week and, if someone knows the connection to LOST, they may pay more than the boat is actually worth... or it could be something else!

Trial Attorneys said...

The boat's name is "Our Mutual Friend"

scottbphilp said...

These clues are really odd. Something to do with auctions, probably in Hawaii and something to do with fish I suppose?!?! I'm just happy there will be a poster this week. Hope everyone has been keeping well over the past few days.

thorsten said...

@ Trial Attorneys

Interesting idea, and good out of the box thinking!

ChrisL said...

I agree with Justin - It's great to have 3 clues already and still have no real idea where it's going.

LotteryTicket said...

aloha

pineapple and letter = HI
eyeball eater = Kereopa? Captain/fisherman?
in escrow in red letters = to be held

something in Hi is to be held

Amy Lynn said...

Woah, Tyson, slow down there :-)

Anyway, I agree with everyone who said it's super fun that we have three clues and no idea.

Sam G said...

Good Morning. Another clue?

RobPerrin said...

I hope Tyson is keeping a diary. When this is over I want to read all about his/her reaction to our detective work on these clues.

Sayid'sgirl said...

If we get our fourth clue today that's usually the time and date.
The reveal could still be tomorrow(Thurs).

However the clues seem to vague to get a time and date clue next. Looks like we're going to get more clues than usual.

If it is on Friday I hope it's before 2pm est because I won't be home after that.

mungonna said...

In Escrow= Sold..in a box.....??

I'm back to a farmers market of sorts..Fruits and veggies for sale.. Pinapples, Longans,...????

ChrisL said...

The "your keyboard must be very tired. Give it a break" line in the letter is bothering me.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Could it be another reveal on tv like AOTS?

ImAnnie/Davide said...

Is there a particular market this week in Hawaii? Like fish or something else? Maybe a cast meeting :D

ReverendMilo said...

Hey Tyson, Imageshack is mad at you for hotlinking one of the images from the FOB show back on frame 6 of the HUB.
http://img29.yfrog.com/img29/3072/1ry.jpg

Just thought I'd let ya know!

Zort70 said...

The long awaited LostARGs Mosaic podcast is now available, se the font page to listen or download.

Kyle Scribner said...

very nice job on the podcast zort. btw, i could listen to your voice all day, you debonair-sounding bastard you.

Zort70 said...

Tyson has been a naughty boy !

Zort70 said...

Thanks Kyle, you aren't too bad yourself on the podcast.

Zort70 said...

There are a couple of clunky edits I'm afraid, but overall I'm pleased.

Amy Lynn said...

It's totally bizarre hearing my own voice on a podcast. I sound weird.

ObFuSc8 said...

Still think the fish auction is a possibility, but who knows?

Zort70 said...

I hope he doesn't take offence but my prize for the voice that doesn't sound how I imagined goes to Kiwilostie.

Lisa said...

I will be on and off all day till I get the heater fixed. It was in the 20's over night so it's a bit cold in here. I think the burner repair man is probably out on a million and one calls since it's so cold. No worries, got a heater to use if need be. Anyway, I will be around.
@ Zort, fantastic voice !
I'll finish the pod cast later when my bf is back to work so I don't have to hear him laugh all the way though it lol

Zort70 said...

Hope you get warm soon Lisa.

ChrisL said...

Amy - you do not sound weird - you sound fab! It's so good to put voices to the names.

Zort - sterling work on the podcast - It's making me smile the whole way through. More of these please!

jdcurtis said...

This text below was posted on Nov 16... the previous post was posted on October 8th... interesting timing

http://www.kuuloakai.com/scrap_book.asp?Index=0&Year=2009

At first light off we go with 25+ kph trades blowing hard going to a buoy far away. Along the way we took a double mahi and Dustin landed one of them. Then a 17 pound ulua hooked up and we landed it too. It was a rugged ride to the buoy but worth it as we took a 4 banger mahi and shibi when we got there. When we came back with bait it was 1 or 2 or 3 a pass some great mahi action with fish jumping all over the place. Scot was hooking fish as fast as he could and these guys were doing great reeling them in. on our way home we found an open school and got one more mahi there. In the harbor Dustin and Mark were game to eat mahi eyeballs gladly good going men you guys did great. Aloha Capt Rusty

Avondale Blog said...

I really enjoyed the podcast! Great work zort!

Daniel said...

First thing that came to my mind was that a crow is always the eyeball eater in movies. Crow, or crows, is also in the word escrow. Maybe it has something to do with that. The pineapple doesnt seem to fit though.

ReverendMilo said...

ChrisL, the keyboard line bothers me too, makes me wonder if is Tyson getting flack from rackspace about 20+ minutes of thousands of refreshes.

What it means I have no clue

Ellen B said...

Hello everyone! Not that I'm a super clue sleuth, but I am completely befuddled by these clues.

ChrisL said...

ReverendMilo, I keep coming back to that. I get an uneasy feeling that a different process may be introduced for this one, but then, going back to the DCaaPB HUB opening line again, it does say "as long as you're online and stay tuned to this website"... surely they wouldn't change the game at this stage. I can't imagine TPTB not being able to resolve any flack resulting from unexpected heavy traffic.

ChrisL said...

Ellen B, You're in good company!

reAnimated said...

haha. I sound weird too Amy! lol. But yours is a whole kick-butt story. Way to go!

Good Job, Zort! This is AWESOME!

jdcurtis said...

Widmore changed the rules...

Frank said...

Looks almost like the nintendo logo.

Peter said...

some great stories in that podcast - loving all the accents!

P

Ellen B said...

Oh, I can't wait to listen to the podcast! Thanks for putting that together, Zort, and thanks to everyone who participated.

ChrisL said...

jdcurtis, That is interesting timing indeed and that same report was published on the 17th here

But this would indicate to me eyeball eaters plural rather than the singular EYEBALL EATER we've been presented with... I'm thinking again now about Lottery Ticket's discovery about Kereopa Te Rau but I can't put this in a Hawaii context.

HenryGaleWasHere said...

Yes, these have been tricky clues so far...

LotteryTicket said...

ChrisL he's a surfer dude in his next life. Daniel Kereopa. But there are no active hits for him in escrow?

Just Thinking said...

Great podcast Zort- enjoyed hearing Kyle's tale of Boston reveal-had someone there but missed the skateboard- aarg- now I understand how it was kind of random. But back to the clues- as really it's the mystery of LOST that always is the draw, more than the stuff.

There was a fan at comicon this year who asked a question- and in the middle was given a Lost set prize for "saying the secret word." I noticed that he was very careful to get his question answered in spite of the prize hoopla. A true Lost fan.

Avondale Blog said...

There's a company called Maui land & Pineapple that's in escrow

Biz Bites

Eugene said...

At the end of the article for Maui Land & Pineapple it mentions the Apollo Group. :-0

ChrisL said...

Avondale Blog and Eugene, too too good!

Spy Hill Skates said...

The crow angle could be something???

Hawaiian crow

Probably a dead end.

Spy Hill Skates said...

The cut-rate prices allowed vulture investors like the Wall Street dealmaker Leon Black's Apollo Group and locally based groups like Trinity Investments to buy the properties cheaply, add millions of dollars in renovations and hire new property managers.

Vultures eat eyeballs.

Avondale Blog said...

That's great Eugene - I didn't see the Apollo before!

Zort70 said...

Maui Land & Pineapple have a big nature reserve, maybe it will be there ?

ChrisL said...

We could make the whole world be about LOST if we looked hard enough :-)

melissarenee311 said...

back when i used to post on the abc site i remember seeing there being something about an upcoming auction that they were going to hold to sell of lost props??? lost takes place in hawaii (i was born there) i dont know if its happened yet though, and i dont know what tht would have to do with eyeball eaters. someone said something about eyeball eaters being tied to fishing. maybe its a painting of jacob red fish, j/k.

sorry just woke up so my thoughts prob aren't worth much

maven said...

Aloha all! Fabulous mosaic podcast, Zort! Exciting to hear everyone's voice (except my own).

Finally....some tough clues! This can go so many ways.... Leaving on a mini-cruise tomorrow through Monday morning, so I'm sure I'll miss all the excitement on this one. Hopefully, I'll check in on the ship's internet center.

Amy Lynn said...

Is anyone else here a Gilmore Girls fan? I can't get TJ out of my head saing, "I'm in es-c-erow"

Amy Lynn said...

maven, do you need poster help?

Eugene said...

ChrisL - exactly. It really makes you laugh sometimes.

Not too long ago someone mentioned being in a store and someone came in and said his name was John Locke. But, then someone is on Lostargs when Terry O'Quinn walks through the door.

Sam G said...

Didn't someone give a report from their trip to Hawaii?
Isn't Hurley's house up for sale?

Don't know where the eyeball eater would fit in.

Bizarre thoughts, it's still early here and haven't had coffee yet.

Avondale Blog said...

chrisl - Everything IS about LOST! (isn't it??)

Sandman90 said...

Zort - Good job on the podcast - thanks for that. Thanks to all who contributed. Next come pics of everyone!

Avondale Blog said...

I was at a park recently and in two separate incidents, I heard someone call their child "miles" and another child "jacob." I thought I must have been transported to the island.

sophieBOYY said...

Thought on it all day but still can't make heads nor tails of these clues =/


@Zort the mosaic sounds great! You've got a James Bond voice!

I sound so bad on it ><;;; I had a cold and everything don't know why I thought it was a good idea lol!


-xx-

maven said...

@Amy Lynn: Thanks for asking, but I'm happy with what I have (and there is absolutely no wall space in my house left anyways)! I'm just having fun following along and helping out when I can.

Ophendor said...

Has anyone tried to rename the Eyeball Eater into Hawaiian words? They do have their own language.

I've been messing around with some Hawaiian dictionaries to try to relate eyeball and eater into a few Hawaiian words that might lead to something with In Escrow.

Ophendor said...

English Word Hawaiian Word
eyeball 'Onohi, haku 'onohi

I can't find a decent word for "eater". But if you were to look for something along the lines with Onohi Restaurant? Eater isn't much of a word, but could mean eatery or something like that. I know it's a wild guess, but it's something new.

ChrisL said...

Maven, Have a great break and try to say hi from the boat if you can.

Ophendor said...

Food: ai
Pronounced “eye”

dylansdad said...

Pineapple...

Eyeball eater...

In escrow...

EBAY ALERT--LEAP PEEP LINE, SCORE WIN!!!

Tired of missing out on the additional profits, they will now be putting the posters directly on eBay themselves. We will need to somehow jump over the long line of our fellow Lost fans if we hope to successfully order one.

reAnimated said...

haha.. good guess dylansdad.

An anagram would be a neat way to toughen up the reveal. And that one fits pretty well.. sorta :)

Zort70 said...

Have a good cruise Maven.

Amy Lynn said...

I'm a little terrified of this being a Friday night reveal, as I have awesome theatre tickets. =/

Scoutpost said...

Well Tyson is making up for lost time...yea!
Although I have no idea where to go with these clues, and as always...defer to you all. ;P

LOVED the Mosaic Zort!! I love hearing everyone's voices...esp. all the UK'ers. Zort you have a particularly smooth voice, and Kiwilostie- I know you're from NZ but your voice reminds me of Jack Davenport's. Anyhow....

@maven- have a great trip- you live the life- mah jongg, quilting, comic con, cruises. :)

Oh and yea for me, today's my 15th wedding anniversary!

Amy Lynn said...

Happy Anniversary, Scout!

ChrisL said...

Congrats Scoutpost!

Zort70 said...

Happy Anniversary Scoutpost, I'm only a couple of years behind !

I've also got theatre tickets, but for tonight, so I won't be around much.

A touring production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Sorry if this has been posted before.
Bigeye Tuna is in season at the Hawaiian fish markets. Maybe there will be an auction of one with the dharma logo stamped on a fin...

reAnimated said...

Happy Anniversary Scout!

MeSoCrazy said...

What the what the? That's all I have to contribute. Which disturbs me.

The Blot said...

I don't know if this has already been guessed yet or not, but I think the next print will be of the Black Rock.

Didn't Widmore go to Southfield's auction to purchase the Black Rock's first mate's journal!?!

illix said...

Zort, not sure where to post this, but I just wanted to let people know that my print of Jacob's Cabin arrived today. Pics in a bit.

Masheen said...

of all the weird stuff I came up w/ thinking about the clues.. this one makes the most sense

pineapple/letter: hawaii

eyeball eater/in escrow: crow

Hana Coast Gallery

Carla Crow - Painter, Photographer and Printmaker

Sayid'sgirl said...

Have a nice trip maven.
Happy Anniversary Scoutpost.
Per my earlier post. I just realized it is Thursday. lol

Hey it was early. :)

Sayid'sgirl said...

oops
Also nice podcast zort.

Sandman90 said...

Safe journeys, Maven.

Nice sleuthing everyone.

Scoutpost, Happy 15th anniversary and many more! I think you should go to Hawaii and figure this out for us while you're celebrating...

Holy crap... I have to quit burning up my days off like this. Productivity waning...

Scoutpost said...

Thanks for all the well wishes.

@Sandman- yes a trip to Hawaii to celebrate and to figure this out would be nice, except we took already took a celebratory trip to San Francisco last month (a mere couple of weeks before the San Fran reveal). If only my timing -or Tyson's- was better!

Eugene said...

Scoutpost - Happy Anniversary!

Dylan's Dad - I am thinking the same thing. I believe the game has changed.

LotteryTicket said...

maven. bon voyage
scoutpost. happy anniversary

dylansdad. can you make that anagram work with fix word.pipeline still looking for Kereopa connection

Zort70 enjoy concert.

amylynn in same boat

8:36 a.m. in Hawaii, Ryan is keeping an eye here. aloha

reAnimated said...

Good that Ryan's keeping an eye out. Let's hope it doesn't get eaten ;)

MWolverine said...

@amy lynn - Good call on the TJ reference. I just recently re-watched the GG episodes when TJ was the "contractor" for Lorelai's house. I happen to be working on my roof today and now I have TJ on the brain. Hopefully I don't accidentally demo a hole in the house!

mungonna said...

I think we're looking for a hawaiian fruit grower/ exporter. I know there use to be a exotic Hawaiian foods store in a local mall,,but they have folded up recently...Again In escrow strikes me as a pict-o-gram for ..Sold in a box. See Hula Brothers for what I refer to,,but its not necessarily them..

Patmc said...

I would really love to see the next clue stamped on the side of a shark in some sort of seafood market, along with a Dharma logo... LOL!

Happy Anniversary Maven!

LotteryTicket said...

Paul Scheer reporting on FB that he's taking questions tonight via twitter @paulscheer on a show call The League. Someone figure out just the right question in 140 characters. plz

LotteryTicket said...

clues: In Hawaii, there is a box that is holding an 'eyeball eater' where eyeball eater = fruit, fisherman, surfer dude, or t-shirt

better look at that letter again.

Rorschach said...

Just listened to the podcast, very cool idea. Most of you sound much different than I would have expected based on your writing style.
Nicole from Ireland, your voice is amazing (I am a total sucker for women with Irish accents.)

The League

bernsteinzab said...

Ok, haven't seen anyone mention this about In Escrow yet, so here goes...

I don't know how this caught my eye, but the 'Esc' in 'Escrow' is the abbreviation on the Escape button on a keyboard. So maybe one of the buttons "In Esc row" (aka, in the same row as the Escape key) is the clue?
Not sure which button it would be, and not sure how the logo-like look of the frame fits in either. Maybe I'm just way off on this one?

Sandman90 said...

Isn't Dog the Bounty Hunter based in Hawaii? I read on a fansite that he's a LOST fan. Maybe Dog could run this thing down for us. LOL!

sumliber said...

Sorry I just posted the links above with no explanation. This is for a Hawaiian god who ate eyeballs.

link

And he's associated with Kaua'i, which is why I thought this was at least one possibility for the 'In Escrow' bit.

link

Peter said...

@Patmc Hilarious shark idea - thought of going into marketing?

Zort70 said...

First thanks to Illix and DylansDad for sending in pictures of Jacob's Cabin, much appreciated.

I just got home from work and I have had an email about "Hawaii - Plan the perfect Hawaiian vacation now. Start Planning!"

Complete coincidence I'm sure.

Noel Michael said...

Don't know if this was already said, but the "IN ESCROW" kinda looks like the Nintendo logo. Same red in the letters, same oval border, plus it rhymes with Nintendo

Avondale Blog said...

I like the Golf Club auction. I don't know if it fits everything, but I like it.

Zort70 said...

sumliber - good info, not sure about the 22nd though, a long time to wait.

curtisj said...

Said did a hit at a golf club... probably in hawaii?

sumliber said...

I agree. And actually, I was thinking I shouldn't have posted the second link up right away. I think the Kaho'ali'i thing might have been on the mark, and didn't want to shut down other discussion about how that could relate to In Escrow.

But, maybe they're both wrong. Who knows at this point?

Patmc said...

@Peter - thanks, but no thanks... LOL I've seen the marketing guys at my work.

I might change my mind, however, should the right job come along. So if anyone at ABC is reading this... call me! :-)

Takes a Village said...

Zort & friends;
Great podcast.It was nice to hear all of your voices.
Happy hunting everyone.

Jesse t said...

Nice job everyone on the podcast. i enjoyed it.

The Kharma Initiative said...

Guess which key is 'In Esc Row' on a keyboard?

Good ol' F5!!

:) Lots of possible little in-jokes with these recent clues...

Comically Yours

Avondale Blog said...

ooohhh kharma initiative!!! F5 - our favorite key. Wouldn't it be something if that's what the clue is about???

Now about those eyeball eaters....

MeSoCrazy said...

Back. And still WHAT? (I'm sorry for shouting that was unkind but that piece of paper I threw at the clue earlier no one saw and I have this need (you probably can't tell because I'm pretty shy) to be heard and seen.

Does anyone want to nominate me to ask Paul a 140 character question? Because I think if we know one thing about me besides my humbleness is that I write very little and when I do it's also just about crucial information.

I keep coming back to eyeball eater. It's a term I've never used in daily conversations but I feel that I need to start. Because for 1, it sounds so darn pleasant.

Oh my gosh you are such an eyeball eater. Yeah. That worked. I will use that next time I get in a fight with a cheerleader.

Avondale Blog said...

If F5 is correct - then maybe "eyeball eaters" are all the blogs we keep up with to figure out the clues????

Scoutpost said...

Ugh- Carlton Cuse just tweeted what I would consider to be a spoiler (although kind of minor) so beware. Darn it Carlton!

Amy Lynn said...

Great call in "in esc row"!

Eugene said...

Nice to see that folks are getting Jacob's Cabin. If anyone decides they don't want to keep it feel free to let me know or send an e-mail to Eugeneslost@gmail.com.

MeSoCrazy said...

Sorry, meant to add (but got lost in my own 'self') that I can't wait to listen to the Podcast. I would do it now but hush hush I'm at work. And while I'm sure you all have lovely voices it won't match the voice I have of you in my head. They never do. ;)

MeSoCrazy said...

Oops. Scoutpost and then (not that I think anyone here follows me on twitter but if you do) I re-tweeted it. So sorry.

And sorry again for another post. Question about framing. Do you guys get them professionally done? I am thinking that's the route to go but it's costly as heck (Utah speak). Seriously why can't I be at all relevant to the topic at hand?

LotteryTicket said...

Hawaii fishing is refreshing.

Amy Lynn said...

@MeSoCrazy... yes, I have mine professionally done. These are really nice pieces of art, and I didn't want to replace a Michael's frame every year.

RobPerrin said...

I too enjoyed the podcast. Very jealous of all the sexy accents.

Just Thinking said...

Clay from Oahu has posted me back that he does not know of any Hawaiian eyeball eater slang offhand.

Scoutpost said...

No worries mesocrazy...it's bound to happen and it wasn't major or something I never would have thought of. I would worry about those voices in your head though....;)

Avondale Blog said...

That's good, Lottery Ticket! Refreshing - F5!!

Amy Lynn said...

OK, so, maybe we can deconstruct Eyeball eater the same way

Eye (the) Ball Eater? Is anyone eating a ping pong ball in the video that told us to look closely?

Lisa said...

yeah, the heat is working again and it only cost $100 bucks. That was a cheap fix ! Now on to the ARG show.

LotteryTicket said...

MeSoCrazy, plz form up questions for Mr. Scheer. 140 character. see if he has plans for vacation in Australia, does he know anything about squirrels at Disney lot (see @carltoncuse, beware spoiler), or something about Alexandra Miller, did he meet her? What does she look like?

Avondale Blog said...

Is there a way you can share the Cuse spoiler with those of us who don't tweet?

Great podcast! Love all the kick ass accents! Makes me wish I was born outside the US.

MeSoCrazy said...

Avondale Blog you can find it by following @CarltonCuse on twitter. This place is spoiler free. So out of respect for everyone here I don't think it should be shared.

Brendan said...

Just sign up for twitter. E-mail adress and user name. Done.

Scoutpost said...

The spoiler is posted here now on DarkUFO.

maven said...

Happy Anniversary, Scoutpost!

I think it's near impossible to stay away from spoiler snippets! And it's only going to get worse.

"Bafflement" is a new and strange feeling here at LostArgs! They finally pulled one over us! :)

Will Ferrell ate a reindeer eyeball. Is he doing anything in Hawaii?

HenryGaleWasHere said...

Just listened to the mosaic podcast and think it is awesome! Also love all those ladies with the sexy accents- you know who you are :)

Also like the "In Esc row" idea- what with our favorite button F5 there and all, but probably not relevant. Still good though.

Congested said...

Listening to the podcast now. Nice story about Crumbs Amy. :)

Amy Lynn said...

@congested, thanks. I wish I had thought to do an addendum after SPiN!

comixguru said...

Bon voyage, Maven!

And congrats, Scoutpost!

Haven't had a chance to listen to the podcast yet, but really looking forward to it! And just a funny note, for some reason I assign genders to nicknames. So I totally thought kiwi was a female. Wonder who else's sex will change? :)

I have a bit of a random question for you all. Does anyone know if there is a list anywhere of which posters have either glow in the dark ink, or UV reactive ink? I'm trying to determine which posters will need which kind of lighting to maximize the effect.

Can't wait to get home tonight and listen to the podcast! I really like the idea of at least putting a voice to everyone here. Zort - any chance that this will become a regular feature...?

andalone said...

I so enjoyed the Mosaic podcast! Everyone did a wonderful job relaying their stories and experiences. I may
relent and record something in my thick Southern accent for the next podcast. I warn you, it may need closed-captioning to understand me!

and Zort...I want you to read me a bedtime story every night! You seriously may have a career in audio books. Wow - smoooooth!

Didn't want to go here: but since we are stuck . . . from 13 of Nature's Most Disgusting Parasites: Eyeball Eater: Acanthamoeba "Luckily, only about one out of a million contact lens wearers are susceptible to infection by the Acanthamoeba parasite, but this free-living amoeba can also get into your eye when you swim in pools or lakes. Early diagnosis is essential for treatment, or victims will eventually go blind."

*sorry*

I know this is off topic, but I couldn't wait.My Jacob's Cabin came today. It looks awesome. I took pictures and sent them to admins@lostargs.com, so hopefully they'll throw them up somewhere for all to see :-)

@Lottery Ticket- You collect all the numbers right? My 4-toed Statue is 237/300, and my Jacob's Cabin is 139/300.

Walkindude125 said...

Hey everyone!

Just wanted to drop a line and say that Jacob's Cabin arrived today, and I've got it up and framed. I took a full picture of it while framed, so if you'd like it for a round-up post, let me know Zort. Also, I got print 108! Unfortunatly, my camera isn't too great at taking close up pictures so I can't get a clear one of the signature. Just wanted everyone to know that #108 went to a die hard fan instead of a scalper.

Amy Lynn said...

@Lottery_Ticket, my Walt's Kidnapping is going to be 269/300

Scoutpost said...

It's ok LT- searching the web for "eyeball eater" is taking all of us down paths I'm sure we'd rather not go....yuk!

Levittra said...

Stealin my thunder WalkinDude? Haha. Just kidding. I'm Jealous of your 108! Trade? ;-)

Juliette's Friend said...

Hey guys,

I'm new to this and want to desperatly get some of this amazing art for my GF for Xmas. What do I need to do? Just stay posted 24/7?

Thanks in advance.

Congested said...

@Amy. Maybe Zort can put together another "mosaicast" when it's all done? That'd be cool.

...was hoping to do a live recorded podcast, but haven't really organized one. I'm guessing some people would still be into it so maybe we could do that too. Even if we just do one as its so late in the game.

Amy Lynn said...

@Congested - maybe you could arrange a podcast like an hour or two after a reveal, when a lot of people are likely to be around and online?

ReverendMilo said...

I did my best LT

@paulscheer ever meet Ronie's asst. Alexandra Miller? Does she have vaginal hubris? & did U dress like a squirrel? http://twitpic.com/q1uua

LotteryTicket said...

Thanks for the numbers and glad you all like JC & WK. Keep'em coming. I'll update THE LIST later today (THE LIST

Walkindude 108s are special I have the 108 Love Triangle. Glad it's in good hands. Zort will want that sig. photo. My JC is here, but I'm not there so have to wait a little longer. Another good personal story to go with this one.

Also I have set up new public e-mail lotto dot ticket dot 108 @ gmail.com If you want to share stories for next weeks sl-LOST article, please send. You can tell me how you want to be credited, name or anon.

Rev. I am sure you will get a response but most likely not one helpful to our cause! Try again.

Just Thinking said...

Maybe eyeball eater is something else that blinds- like the Sun?

Must go buy Thanksgiving turkey to avoid frozen giblets on the day.

ReverendMilo said...

Ok tried again:

@paulcheer what is an "eyeball eater in escrow"? you smoking pubes again?

MeSoCrazy said...

I am a fan of "the League".

Here is a bit from the show.

WARNING it has MATURE LANGUAGE.

Vaginal Hubris Music Video

LotteryTicket said...

and with that post link we are speechless

ReverendMilo said...

one more tweet to paul, this time just about the League sort of:

@paulscheer one more thing, is the guy that did Optimus Prime's voice in the 80's voicing the bumps for "the League"? he's cool.

One more slightly offensive League vid so you can hear what I think is Optimus' voice at the end

feel_the_insanity said...

@Frank, not sure if you've addressed this already but I'm definitely interested in buying your Swan Station print. My email is: feel_the_insanity @ hotmail.com. Let me know if you're still interested in selling.

ChrisL said...

RevMilo. You crack me up!
