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).

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

I like 44!

JPL said...

@Thorsten - I like the way you think. :)

And since Zort is always one step ahead of us all when it comes to posting new posts... here's a repost of my last post from previous post (that's a lot of posts):

And a good morning to you all. New clue = a great way to start the day!

Good theories so far, but still to early in the game. Looking at list of posters, it seems our good friend AndySchex may have been 1st poster order for Ben (#2548)... maybe he'll receive something today to help us along.

For those that are out on the roads today... travel safely and know that a new clue will hopefully be posted when you reach your destination (something else to look forward to in addition to seeing family & friends).

ChrisL said...

I have to be in Paris on business on Tuesday and Wednesday!!! When is this one going to pan out?

thorsten said...

I will be on my way to munich, JPL. crossing the country from the very north to the deep south, were people speak strange and wear Lederhosen.

The 44 is again set in the ususal font, Dirty Headline. Not the usual red, but yellow, so that must be part of the clue. The RGB values are 255, 198, 0 and the closest Pantone value is 123c. The gradient in the background (RGB 26, 26, 26) starts in the lower right corner with and ends in the upper left (RGB 36, 39, 58). The image size is 699 by 319 pixels at 654, 2 k.

Masheen said...

The UK again? Like +44 country code and stuff?

Zort70 said...

+44 could be the UK, but I've a feeling that we are headed down under for this one.

Thorsten a very detailed technical analysis of the image :-)

Zort70 said...

By the way in the previous comments I was too sleep deprived and full of cold to type the right words.

What I was after was pictures of The Barracks. (not Jacobs Cabin)

On a brighter note I feel much better today and can actually type straight.

ImAnnie/Davide said...

This seems a saturday reveal!

Martyn said...

Maybe a Sunday reveal? One clue a day leads the 4th being on the Saturday.

Unless they give us another clue today that is.

thorsten said...

I squeezed from the JPEG everything possible ;))
It's called f15h1.jpg, which follows the usual naming conventions. f12h1.jpg for example was the 7X7 MILES BIG clue, and had the same pixel and file size.
Both files share the same header so we can assume that the same original PSD file is used over and over, and edited every time.
The Ajira flyer was different, it is called f14hfly.jpeg, notice the extra e in jpeg, and the creator used Photoshop 5. We are at Photoshop 11 now, which is the CS4 version. So I assume someone else did that one.

The Unsomnambulist said...

Is that a yellow or orange? If orange, could this site be a clue?
http://orange44.blogspot.com/

But my guess is 44 is for the UK's direct dial code...

Martyn said...

Oh how I wish for it to be a UK reveal, scratch that, an England reveal. Would do my damnedest to get there.

But it's going to be Australia no doubt, which is fair enough.

Zort70 said...

As much as I'd love it to be the UK, I think we have had our reveal so this will be somewhere else.

A Saturday reveal seems likely given the previous timing, but we shall see if this is a fast set of clues or a strung out set because of the Thanksgiving holiday.

ImAnnie/Davide said...

I think we can be safe to say that there will be NO thanksgiving/blackfriday reveal! This is not bad for US fans :)

Even if a lot of them will be away from home this weekend, i think!

JPL said...

Zort - glad you're feeling better.

Thorsten - Good work on the image explanation. Also, when in Rome (or in your case... Munich) do as the locals do and embrace the culture & couture, just stay away from yellow lederhosens.... that look was so June 2009. :)

I'm guessing a weekend reveal as well.

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

JPL have you been in Rome? :)
Beautiful city..

JPL said...

ImAnnie - not fortunate enough to have traveled to Rome, but it is on the list of places I'd love to visit... the history, the architecture, and of course the food!

Maybe once the poster reveals are done, I can start to replenish the vacation fund. :)

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

The food here in Italy is definitely the GREATEST in Europe and (i think) in the world. You have to try the original one, not the "italian" things someone sell outside Italy :p

Ellen said...

email...:)
xxoo

Zort70 said...

This Australia link with the 44th Parallel, I've been looking at a map, and the 44th Parallel seems to be just underneath Aus.

Kyle Scribner said...

from the explanations given so far (just what I've read in these 19 posts and on the main page), i'm not sold on Australia. What's the yellow/Aussie link anyway?

futureself said...

I'm Annie....I agree, Rome is one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

I doubt there will be another one in the UK and the Aussie's definitely deserve a reveal ;)

AndySchex said...

@jpl, unfortunately, if I'm lucky enough to be the first buyer, I won't be able to post the first buyer letter until next week. I'm going out of town for the Thanksgiving holidays.

But I can share a photo of my I Heart My Shih Tzu that came in yesterday and was signed by Jorge Garcia
T-Shirt

Attorney Greg said...

While the reveal may be in Australia, I do not believe 44 refers to the parrallel - if that was the point why not pick the parallel that actually goes through there instead of just close (from the picture on the main page the 44 appears to miss). My two cents. There was a yellow 44 website in france but I couldn't tell what it was and dediced not to check it out.

Kyle Scribner said...

alright, so i'm not so negative sounding, just pooh-poohing others' ideas, i'll offer a possibility: Rome (speaking of). They've got a hostel known as The Yellow, which is located at 44 via palestro.

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

Rome.. Italy..
I'm from Northern italy, but i may have a trip to Rome for LOST :D

Zort70 said...

That's fantastic Andy, I'll put that picture on the main page if I may.

Zort70 said...

It is very early stages at the moment so don't rule anywhere out yet, but it would be odd if Australia was left out.

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

(and Italy really doesn't deserve a reveal, i agree)

Zort70 said...

Every fan deserves a reveal close to them, but with only 15 (possibly 16) reveals it would be very hard to get global coverage.

Maybe a few more outside of the US would have been good, but logistically it is hard to do.

Lisa said...

kewl, a new clue ! When I saw the clue, I thought they looked like football numbers on someone's jersey. My father is planning on watching the latest football game on Thanksgiving tomorrow so that was my first thought.

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

I was totally not sarcastic, i seriously think that Italy does not deserve any of this. I fear i'm the only italian who is following this viral marketing campaign (and i'm proud of it, even if it is distracting me from my (real) university's problems :D ), so an italian reveal could probably be a very large flop.. we'll see!

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

And, BTW, 44 parallel NORTH passes right through Italy.. (with france, japan, russia, US, canada, romania, bulgaria, serbia, bosnia, croatia)

ChrisL said...

Thorsten, I really enjoyed your image breakdown.

A weekend reveal would be perfect for me.

Thomas said...

HI everybody at LOSTARG,
This is my first post, even though we are approaching the end of LOST poster publications...

On my side, I would love to have a reveal in France!
Furthermore 44 is the id of my county "la Loire Atlantique"...!

I can always hope!

:D
See y'all
and thanks for this great blog
Thomas (FR)

Amy Lynn said...

Australia would be supercool, even if it almost guarantees a horrid reveal time for the rest of us :)

Zort70 said...

Bonjour Thomas, comment allez vous ?

Welcome along, even at this late stage.

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

My French is VERY VERY dusty. Last time I spoke in French was 8-9 years ago.. I almost forgot everything :D Lucky that following LOST in language "bites the dust" off of my English :D

Zort70 said...

While we wait for the next clue I've created a NEW POST for the latest Lost University Tutoring Session

Amy Lynn said...

Has anyone speculated that the URL for frame 16 might be on the Blu-Ray box?

ChrisL said...

Amy, I have the Season 5 Blu-Ray, I can't see anything on the packaging. I'm waiting to view the content until you guys in the US have it but as that's not for 2 weeks I can't imaging there will be anything there relating to this.

Amy Lynn said...

ChrisL, maybe it's on the US sets only? Or maybe it'll be featured on the first lecture of Lost University? The way the timing is going, it seems that we'll almost positively be getting the last frame on or about 12/8.

Dan said...

Hi everyone! Back from our honeymoon in the Southern Caribbean, where we got to see San Juan, St. Thomas, Tortola, Antigua, St. Lucia, and Barbados. Just a fantastic trip all around.

I see that I missed an ok Ben print. It's still great because it's of Ben, but I think that's probably the only character that would have worked (imagine this was of any other character except for perhaps Desmond, and even then), leading me to conclude it's just ok. That being the case, I'm still going to see if I can get my hands on one via trade or purchase.

Very nervous about this reveal possibly being on Saturday but I'm hoping that won't be the case.

By the way, although I've mentioned this a couple of times before, I am now absolutely convinced that there will be a second edition of 16 entirely new prints with respect to the final three seasons. Hopefully, they'll increase the number of prints available for purchase, though.

Anyway, good to be back - hope you all had a great week!

ChrisL said...

Amy, I was just thinking that maybe it's connected to the LU going live via the Blu-Ray, you're right, the timing could work.

On the US sets only!!! YIKES!

ChrisL said...

Hi Dan, sounds like you had a great trip :-)

LotteryTicket said...

Welcome back DAN! Glad you had a nice time in the Islands.

There were several good posts in the previous comments related to today's clue. 44 parallel South goes thru New Zealand.

I copied in several website urls that seemed worth keeping an eye on. Grid 44, in particular, as I had reason to visit this site years ago re: Uluru.

If Australia is NOT part of this ARG I would be very surprised.

LotteryTicket said...

Day 44 on the island, November 4, Thursday: raft is launched, Arzt blows up, Locke is nearly pulled underground, Aaron is retrieved from Rousseau, Desmond wakes up and pushes the button, hatch is blown, quarantine on door, wet Walt whispers, Hurley tells Jack about the Numbers

Amy Lynn said...

Ooh, good thinking. Although, I don't think wet Walt whispers was day 44. I think that was some days later.

ObFuSc8 said...

Morning all!

Zort -- glad to see you are feeling better.

It is pretty early stages for this one, but like a lot of you I can see why they'd have Australia included in a reveal.

When I was looking at the map of the 44th parallel south yesterday, I saw that it actually ran through NZ, and seemed to run right under Australia. But LT's reference to the 44th grid point being in Australia is a possibility as well. I'd wonder if TYSON and crew know about the actual planetary grid and theories as they relate to LOST, but then since they have been lurking on LOST forums, they probably do.

As far as they yellow color -- from wikipedia: Green and gold are the national colors of Australia, as proclaimed by Sir Ninian Stephen, the Governor-General of Australia on 19 April 1984.

I f they skip posting clues on Thursday and Friday, the reveal could even bo on Monday.

ObFuSc8 said...

typos abound. bo=be.

LotteryTicket said...

Amy Lynn, meant to reference Lostpedia timeline before hitting the post button. "Man of Science, Man of Faith" which is Season 2, but timeline credits to Day 44.

organic_herbal said...

"... a new clue is given for hte 15th frame, remember this is the last frame that is Lost."

Isn't the last frame LOST? Or am I misinterpreting? Sorry

reAnimated said...

I agree that I thought Day 44 was pretty much when S1 ended/S2 began.

Kyle Scribner said...

i agree australia has been a huge part of the show thus would make sense to have a reveal there, but the yellow 44, to me, shows little evidence pointing to australia. it's early tho; could turn out to be spot on. thanks obfuscate for the gold reference.

Sam G said...

Australia - good choice

andalone said...

@Dan - Welcome back! Your comment has caused me heart palpitations! The thought of an additional 16 prints thrills and terrifies me....checking real estate listings now for bigger house with more wall space.

Amy Lynn said...

@andalone, I hear ya. I have no idea where my Ben Linus print is even going to go.

Kinda O/T: Does anyone need a Google Wave invite? I've got three.

dylansdad said...

I like the idea of hosting two consecutive reveals in Hawaii and Australia, but why not use 42 for the 42nd parallel? It's a bit more to the north--and it's one of the numbers, of course. I'm waiting to see the next clue. (And crossing my fingers for a Monday reveal, though unlikely at this point.)

ObFuSc8 said...

Amy Lynn -- LT and I have been hoping for Gwave invites

Amy Lynn said...

Just send me the addresses to send them to.

ObFuSc8 said...

Will direct tweet.

Amy Lynn said...

You guys are hooked up.

I have one more. :)

LotteryTicket said...

Amy Lynn, ugh. I have WAVE, was trying to get one for Ob_. Can you retrieve so not wasted? sorry, step away from the comments.

Amy Lynn said...

LT, um, I dunno... ;( sad. Can you reject it?

Emily said...

Doesn't Sarah where a 44 tshirt in Do No Harm the night before the wedding (also in the ep of It's Always Sunny I'm watching. And Obama is the 44th president. Just some thoughts.

Emily said...

Oh and Amy Lynn, if you still have that google wave invite may I have it?

Amy Lynn said...

@Emily, it's yours. what's your email address?

Emily said...

Awesome, thank you!!

emmysangk@gmail.com

LotteryTicket said...

I have GWave invites this morning, dm via Twitter, please with e-mail.

LotteryTicket said...

AmyLynn I'll let you know what I'm sent by Google. If you get another taker, send on to me and I'll add to my list.

MEL way to early in the a.m. the last one

Brad said...

No offense to Wyoming - It was the 44th state admitted to the union - but it won't be hosting the latest reveal

Zort70 said...

I've added Andy's tshirt picture to the main blog page.

Zort70 said...

Don't worry, I've disabled comments on it so we don't have three going at the same time :-)

LotteryTicket said...

come on Zort70 where you sense of adventure? we're already half mad with clues, a little 3-way comment conversation might just tip us to fully mad. :)

Ob said...

Hey LT, AmyLynn, sorry about the Gwave invite snafu I appear to have caused.

I don't see an invite yet...does it take a little while to receive once its sent?

Amy Lynn said...

Yeah, takes about a half hour to an hour.

Ob said...

Cool, thanks. I guess all the anticipation for these DCaaPB clues especially leading up to the final frame has me a little on edge. I should have looked before posting, see now that it could take up to a day.

AmyLynn, if I can send invites once I am up and running, let me know and I'll replace yours too.

Amy Lynn said...

Just a heads up... if you're planning to go to Michael Emerson's play in NYC next month, there are literally only 13 seats left in the house!

And if you are going, we should all go for a drink before hand.

mungonna said...

a few more..

the new and much improved WD.

the point in a drinking song, that if you reach it , you haven't been drinking enough.

a rare 50's and 60's record made just for the comprehending challenged.

how many hours before the next reveal

The original last number in Hurleys Numbers..but was found to be too lucky.

the original days of Christmas song , but after first public playing ,due to irrate audience, was trimmed down to what we know it as today.

a repetative golfer.

Amy Lynn: I have no idea what Google Wave invites are.

Re the clue: Makes sense that Australia would be the last frame before the Red Question Mark would be in a place vital to the show.

Sam G said...

Why Australia and not New Zealand?

Amy Lynn said...

@SamG, only because Australia has a LOST connection. Since we were just in Hawaii, it'd be fitting to now go from Australia to LAX.

Sam G said...

This is interesting (and potentially frustrating)... Australia has FIVE time zones, and not at all vertically separated like the rest of the world.

So why is this the last lost print? What is 16 going to be?

Amy Lynn said...

For the record, since the hint is in UMichigan's colors, this guy is #44

Crushproof said...

Well, once again you guys have proved smarter than I...I googled "Yellow 44" and got an adult oriented site definitely NSFW (haha) Once again, it looks like Australia is the key to the whole game!!!!

I haven't read thru all the comments, but noticed that this started today. Probably a long shot.

Zort70 said...

Anything is worth considering at this stage. I fancy a trip to Dubai.

Caryn said...

I didn't read through all the comments, but is the 44th near the gold coast in Australia? that might explain the yellow color

lostsailors said...

Whoa! I saw this last night and was so surprised to see one come up. I thought for sure this week was just off due to the US holiday.

Zort70 said...

It's not thanksgiving in Australia though :-)

Martyn said...

Ugh, long ass day at work and now have to go in early on my day off, so really, I need a new clue and a lit more comments to read through on this train journey home.

Another 16 posters would have my wallet come to life and throttle me. I'd have to give my CC to my gf so I didn't buy anymore.

As strange an arg as it is, been quite a fun ride, it actually made us care about it because it affected our emotions where as watching rachel Blake run away from the security, I know I wasn't getting as frustrated as I was with this.

But TLE was still th best ARG to date, Apollo bar wrapper on my wall too. Actually, will move it to my LOST wAll underneath the hatch I think.

Inna said...

hey guys rachelskid here. surprised to see a clue, but also excited. I also think this cannot end without Australia, but also... Ann Arbor. Amylynn's thoughts on umich seem worth a follow up.

I was thinking Australian would be last. here is what i was thinking, i posted on the unsolved clue comments, but no one seems to be there much. So, it said once "15 Will be lost, the 16th Will be found." note that the "will" is capitalized. not sure what this means. But, i found this site: http://whatsup.foundmagazine.com/

its seems inline with this type of project, and the group is off to australia and new zealand. i can see how this might be the last reveal.

but, of course, just a thought.

Dan said...

Thanks for the warm welcome back, everyone! Here's a pic I took on a foggy day in St. Thomas from our cruise cabin balcony. Let's just say it reminded me of a certain print :)

Martyn said...

Correction! Greatest day ever! Just got home to see Jacobs Cabin with my neighbour and my Polar Beer poster arrived. How awesome is that???

Amy Lynn, what was your advice to open the damn thing?

Peeboo said...

Yay for a reveal in my daytime, but I really think the the 44th Parallel is a bit of a stretch folks (maybe it will be at the Oceana check-in desk at Sydney Airport:P

Amy Lynn said...

@Martyn, it's a tube of lipstick. If you take off the label (which should just be a sheet of paper), you'll see that it slides right open.

LotteryTicket said...

4x4! wasn't JEEP Lost TLE sponsor: letyourcompassguideyou.com

weapon can't be 4x4. it's crossed off on my LIST. AmyLynn showed me the card.

Amy Lynn said...

@LT, what card?

Sagacious Penguin said...

I 2nd rachelwager: If the 16th isn't Lost, what's it supposed to be?

Also, I think when this is all done, they should get 16 awful artists to do a series of prints based on the most lame, throw-away, "scoff at" moments from the show.

They could have prints like "My 3-Year Old Cousin Eric for The Tree Frog" or "Some Hobo We Found for Jack's Tattoos." We'd finally get prints for "Nikki & Paulo," "Kate Licks the Spoon," "Isabel," "Charlie Steals Aaron," and "WAAAAAAAAAALT!"

Now that'd be great!

Martyn said...

@Amy Lynn...

Gotta say, not opened many tubes of lipsticks in my time but I think I get what you're saying. I see the line anyway.

Cheers!

Amy Lynn said...

LOL, okay.... here is how to open your tube in 3 easy steps.

1) Take off shipping label.
2) Find a woman
3) Tell woman to open tube like lipstick.

MWolverine said...

Michigan football team would certainly be available for a poster reveal since they don't have to worry about practicing for a bowl game again this year. Excuse me while I go cry in the corner...

LotteryTicket said...

"like a tubevirgin . . oh! twisted for the very first time . . . like a tubevir er er er gin . . . " sorry Martyn, could help it.

Amy, Clue

Sandman90 said...

Hello, all. Great to see a new clue - still looking up a few other possibilities. Will post back soon.

LotteryTicket said...

Sandman90, do you need Wave invite, I've got one more.

and that "couldn't" above.

Sandman90 said...

BTW, these tubes are resilient little buggers. Two days ago, I walked into the room where I was admiring the JC print but had left the tube on the floor. It was dark as I was hoping to get a better feel for the glow in the dark elements of this piece. I basically stepped on the tube and log-rolled off onto my fanny. My coccyx is still thanking me for my less than cat-like reflexes. The tube was no worse for the wear!

Dan said...

I'll gladly take a Wave invite if nobody else wants it :)

twersky AT gmail DOT com

Amy Lynn said...

@Sandman, OUCH. My kitten is loving the tubes.

Spy Hill Skates said...

As Sam pointed out, 44 north puts you in Michigan, not dead on Ann Arbor but within about 100 miles. The University of Michigan is in Ann Arbor and the school colors are gold/yellow and blue. The Dharma Initiative began there in 1970. That seems as solid, if not more so than Australia for a reveal location.

Sayid'sgirl said...

lol Martyn
Just slit the tape at the seam with or without removing the label. I didn't remove the label.
It's a tube within a tube so you don't need to be concerned about cutting the print. You only need enough pressure to cut the tape.

LotteryTicket said...

dan, invite in the mail (there is a bit of delay, but it will arrive soon)

sandman90? Wave invite?

Sayid'sgirl said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Sayid'sgirl said...

oh I guess I should have included.
...and pull the top section off the tube. :)

andalone said...

Been lashing my tubes together...raft almost complete!

Martyn said...

@Amy Lynn...

Funnily enough, I did ask a woman how the hell you open a lipstick tube and it worked. Was a little stiff at first but it popped right off.

Do feel stupid that I was pulling mighty hard on the metal on the top for my last two posters.

And thanks for the song Lottery Ticket! My poster number is 169/300, which is odd considering I had a wicked high order number but as we've learnt, that means bugger all!

Dan said...

Thanks, LT - you rock!

While you're at it, do you have any extra Ben posters? :)

Sayid'sgirl said...

Martyn
Did the lady want to know why you needed to know how to open a lipstick tube?

Glad you got it open the easier way this time.

Capcom said...

Sandman, you made me LOL with your logroll. Sorry, hope you're OK. X-D

Happy Thanksgiving everyone who does Turkey Day!

Sandman90 said...

LT - Thanks. I would gladly accept the wave invite. Will post an email shortly. Thank you.

Martyn said...

@Sayid's Girl...

Lol, yeah, then I told her and then she laughed at me and said, that's never going to work on that.

Needless to say, I had the last laugh! (Little Alan Partridge Reference!)

@Capcom - I can laugh about it...now!

MeSoCrazy said...

I don't understand how everyone is getting wave invites and mine still hasn't come. They must know who I really am. And the crazy that I bring.

Yes I have nothing, as usual, to add to the clue discussion or the lipstick/tube discussion.

andalone said...

@Amy Lynn - That is scary on so many levels!

MeSoCrazy said...

LotteryTicket said...

OK. all Wave invites sent. after 'waving' for about a week, you should get "invite others" or your arm will be very tired, one or the other.

HenryGaleWasHere said...

I also like the idea of Michigan for this clue- the yellow 44 was on a gray background first, right? Now it's on a dark blue background- Michigan's colors. Plus the Dharma-Ann Arbor connection...

So what's the deal with this Google Wave thing going on? I am confused.

@Amy Lynn- it was still morning here on the west coast :) and no, i didn't just wake up. i was finally all caught up on everyone's comments! :)

comixguru said...

@Martyn so... how do you like Jacob's Cabin? *hoping you don't like it as much as you'd like The Swan Station* :)

Martyn said...

Oh, sorry! Was catching up with Flashforward, don't know why to be honest.

Sorry comixguru but the detail in this poster is extravagant. I'm absolutely amazed at the quality of it. I promise, I tried to hate it as much as possible when it came but upon unrolling it again, it's truly beautiful.

Really hope you don't hate me :(

Martyn said...

Ooops, Lottery Ticket, my poster number is 162 not 169, misread the 2 as a 9.

Sorry!

Isidor Isaac Rabi (pronounced /rɑːbi/; 29 July 1898 – 11 January 1988) was a Galician-born American physicist and Nobel laureate recognised in 1944 for his discovery of nuclear magnetic resonance.

Cool, really hope you do get Jacob's Cabin but majority of people with it in their possession are selling it at value price and not retail price, be it LOST fan or not, still really uncool.

Will keep an eager eye out for it for you.

Glad you don't hate me too! :D

Following up on colors discussed re: University of Michigan

The original U-M colors were described in 1867 as “Azure Blue” and “Maize,” two standard artist’s oil colors of the day. The blue was described as being “the blue of a summer sky” and the maize as “the yellow of ripe corn.” These colors are represented today on the University flag and the ribbons affixed to diplomas; these colors are slightly different from one another.

The College of Engineering has the specific color Gold: PMS 123 coated.

nothing you probably haven't heard already, but here is part of article "Hollywood, universities .. .

from USA Today:News/Education/
May 15, 2009

Lost executive producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof stress that the decision to base the Dharma folks at a 1970s-era U of M should be viewed as a compliment. After all, Cuse said, they chose the school because of its reputation as "a real center of intellectuality."

"There was an incredibly vital university academic community, and we just felt like acknowledging that by making the characters from there was just kind of cool and very sort of appropriate for the time," he said.

Cuse and Lindelof say to expect the Dharma-Michigan connection to play a significant role as the show heads into next season, its sixth and final one.

The Michigan Wolverines, that state up North as the Ohio State Buckeye's call them :) A friendly college football rivalry.

Sam G said...

I received The Barracks today 285/300 order #2506.

MWolverine said...

sayid'sgirl - It certainly is a friendly college football rivalry. If you mean "friendly" in the same way that Tom was once dubbed "Mr. Friendly". :)

Hey MWolverine I never connected the name. Duh
Mr. Friendly, yeah something like that. :)

I want to wish all my US ARG friends a Happy Thanksgiving.

LotteryTicket said...

Lol. Sayid'sgirl, join the club. Everyone thinks it's a reference to X-men's wolverine. The little m at the begining goes unnoticed. I'm probably better off with the false assumptions these days given Michigan's performance on the field. Keeping my fingers crossed for an Ann Arbor reveal though!

Ob said...

Hey there ARG peeps!

Just got home and YAY, GWave invite. I am about to waaaaaaaaaave! THANKS AmyLynn.

I think the Michigan/UMich connection for the 44 clue may be as likely as Australi, with as little as we have to work with. Hoping for a bit more soon. Hint hint TYSON!

Dan, sounds like you had a great time on your honeymoon. It's amazing that your pic so echoes The Transmission!

Amy Lynn said...

Have a great holiday, everyone. Hope it is full of a very exciting clue!

I like The Barracks a lot. It's not classic LOST but I have The Hatch for that.

maven said...

Happy Thanksgiving to all those who partake in overeating! I'm very thankful for my family, friends and wonderful life, and, of course, all my LOST buddies! If you're driving somewhere (like me) be safe!

Spy Hill Skates said...

@ Sam: The Barracks looks great. I'm still waiting for mine. The colors really pop in your pics. I like the greens and blue/greens in the hills.

I wonder if the used house paints on these Lost posters?

Sam G said...

@Spy Hill Skates

I think I'm going to frame The Barracks in white. The colors really do pop.

LotteryTicket said...

Sam G, those are great photos and I want the Apollo Bar! and call me crazy, but is that writing in trees? numbers perhaps? Seeing clues everywhere these days.

Safe travels to all on the move. What maven said! Enjoy the day!

roxanna said...

Happy Thanksgiving to all of us in the US & Happy Thursday to everyone else :)

Rorschach said...

So being an American and bored on the day before Thanksgiving, I was looking at some Thanksgiving history/myths. I was reading about Plymouth Rock (where the pilgrims supposedly landed) and noticed this as the directions to get there

"The rock is located in downtown Plymouth along the shoreline. You can get there either from the north or the south by taking Route 3 and getting off at exit 6 (Route 44), which will take you into downtown Plymouth."

Route 44, does it mean something? Almost certainly not, but I have had a few drinks and found it odd mainly because I went straight from Lostargs to my search of Thanksgiving trivia (of course the drinking has something to do with it). I need another clue...and a drink.

Hello from North Carolina, where I'm visiting brother and his family for turkey day. We have dueling laptops here, since everyone seems to have one, and we just don't know when to stop!

EllenB,

Hello from nearby Virginia. We had an early dinner, so I'm back on my trusty laptop. What did we do before the internet?
