Good time here in Australia

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

I'm officially searching for a friend who can help me with this poster.

~Karen~ said...

Saturday is November 28th not the 27th. Interesting...

LotteryTicket said...

Hi Karen!

Ob_ will repeat as I was NEW POSTED

Can you please e-reserve for 6, use our Twitter names if necessary Tks

Zort70 said...

Right, I'm going to bed again, and this time I'm not getting up for anything, no matter how desperate I get.

Sayid'sgirl said...

From last post.

That will teach me to post before I've read through all the posts.

zort looks like you fooled them. :)

Isn't that 3 posts in one day?
It's crunch time.

Not to mentiion I missed the new post. lol

This is the best time for me since this thing has started.
Usually the reveal is not long after the open if there isn't any set time.

Attorney Greg said...

Hope those that can go have a great time!

Zort70 said...

Sayid'sgirl said... zort looks like you fooled them. :)

Yep, chalk up one for me and about 40 for Tyson !

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hi Karen
They've posted the wrong date for the day before. Forget which reveal it was. LT probably knows.
They'll fix it in a little while.

Mike said...

Clue is down... probably fixing the date.

Mike said...

Date fixed

Jesse! Rikkitik said...

It's fixed! 28th.

The other time they made a mistake was in the Walt centered reveal, then they added the "No time travel required" bit as a joke for their mistake, but this time I guess they didn't feel so bad!

Sayid'sgirl said...

ok blogger is acting wonky for me.

lol zort good night.

Sayid'sgirl said...

vabaeur
That's right. I remember now. :)

JPL said...

Once this ARG is done and over, shall we officially invite the crew responsible for DCAAPB as well RMA to chat with us?

Since we know they're following LOSTARG's, would love to get their take on us and their experience with the poster reveals. :)

LotteryTicket said...

nite again zort I'll be in touch you time 7 a.m.

hotel accommodations made so I can relax and enjoy a great night with LOST fans.

Mike said...

I thought I posted clue first in comments.

vabauer said...

I had guesstimated that they might be timing the red "?" reveal with the Season 5 DVD release, it certainly looks like it could be ... I'm going to be travelling all week with very limited access, that totally sucks!!

JPL said...

Lottery Ticket - this is going to be one special night for you (as well as the others attending). Way cool. Dinner... hopefully some cool swag.. poster reveal... & dancing!!!

You've earned it.

mungonna said...

Man-o-Man..they had better do something special for all the Lost Fans who show up..besides the reveal..I mean.. DINNER PARTY!!!

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

What the hell.
The show that will keep me busy tomorrow starts at 21.30 and ends at... 00.30, Chicago's 5.30pm.
I HAVE to run home the second it ends, otherwise i won't be able to purchase one (like with Ben Linus :( )

ObFuSc8 said...

Ha! I was e-reserving AS they put the flyer up!

I have tried to call, but it goes to a recorded message. I guess I can try to leave a message too.

lostsailors said...

Wow Saturday reveal! Hope my home computer keeps it together so I can follow along, hehe.

lostsailors said...

Also, haaa, the date. More time traveling or another instance of needing a proof reader!

mungonna said...

Yes JPL..rehashing fond memories..aaauuuhhmmm..yes.. their side of all this would be a fascinating perspective. I do not envy him..her or them one bit. I said it before..its almost a no win proposition for them. I would like to know what determined the sequence.. which posters were designated to be frame what....ANd.. is the dropped " I" in Alexandra..a clue?

maven said...

Who knows what Red ? holds for us....this might be the last reveal! :( Can't believe this part of our hiatus is almost over!

Hopefully, I'll be home from a kid's b-day party by the reveal time!

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

Do you think that the reveal will be at 5.30pm or later?

ObFuSc8 said...

We are set for 6 plus tomorrow at The Ward. If there are a lot more people going, let me know ASAP (tweet) and I will take care of it.

They have WiFi.

maven said...

@ImAnnie: Most of the reveals happened within moments of the opening time! Be prepared for 5:30pm CT!

Anne said...

Hi everyone, been following along after I found this blog (did the early ones by myself). Can't believe my luck at a Chicago reveal, I'm in the burbs.

But what's this about e-reserving? If I miss out on another reveal that would be awful, especially since this one is in my home town. (I missed the Tokyo reveal even though I was in Japan at the time!)

I haven't managed to get any prints so far, which I suppose isn't the end of the world . . . but I don't want to miss the party! Made a Lost viewing party in Honolulu a few years back while traveling and would love to hang with other fans again . . .

ObFuSc8 said...

Anyone who'll show up tomorrow should let me know ASAP. I will try to arrange things so that we will all be comfortable with room for laptops.

For those of us going though, it sure would be nice to have backup poster snaggers!

Sam G said...

They should just send us the clues so we can proof check them first?

ObFuSc8 said...

Anne -- I made reservations. I am willing to sacrifice a poster for a CHI reveal!

The reveals with a time range have all given out swag until the end of the range they put up, so you could conceivably show up after the buy. We will be there. It's SAT night anyway, so it'll be fun.

Justin said...

Wow, glad you guys are getting a reveal ObFusc8! Congrats!

Hope you guys have fun!

LotteryTicket said...

anne, hi. We will be expecting you at 44th Ward. Yeah!

I would be oh so grateful for anyone who would step forward and try to purchase poster for me. I know, I know, do not say it. I've made my choice and will live with it. I will take my laptop, but we know the fail rate of trying to purchase from reveal location, just not enough MBPS power. So, if you snag and don't want it ('cause I'm sure the LAST poster will be so-so ;) lol, please know that I do.

Sayid'sgirl said...

LT
Could I get your poster 15 twitter link when it's ready please? Thanks.

kiwilostie said...

Jealous. :P

LotteryTicket said...

Hey, Justin. I plan on using the "send in a stranger" plan to get a able swag. Hope I can send something your way.

LotteryTicket said...

all available. wow only got a few of the letter correct.

fingers are flying

LotteryTicket said...

Lottery Ticket's Twitter List for Frame 15

please carry this forward thru the day tomorrow as I'll be on the move beginning noon central.

I'll add names as I get them.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Thanks LT.

Amy Lynn said...

Wahoo!

kiwilostie said...

Glad the reveal landed on my one day off. Thats a good start!
Have a great time all that are going, and thanks for going in the first place, for all us 'others'.

Jeremy said...

I will take my laptop, but we know the fail rate of trying to purchase from reveal location, just not enough MBPS power.

i scored my rob jones on panera's b connection (15 mbps)... during a meeting with a potential client... i actually warned him ahead of time that i may have to ask him to stop talking while i buy the print. he said he'd give me the work... but then i never heard from him again. he was even another jeremy! go figure.

LotteryTicket said...

jeremy, hope spring eternal. thanks for your words of inspiration.

Lisa said...

ok, ready and waiting for a new poster, I'm running out of walls lol

LostiePat said...

@LotteryTicket - I will try to buy a print for you. Please follow me on twitter (@LostiePat) so I can send you a direct message.

~Karen~ said...

Hi Losties!
They fixed the date :)

It looks to be a fun event!

Ellen said...

email...:)
xxoo

Anne said...

@ObFuSc8 + LT: looking forward to it! :) Will be there w/bells on, though probably not the Dharma jumpsuit? lol.

Those wanting to buy from reveal: there is a Starbucks not far from the 44th Ward. They have a Boingo Hotspot; thinking I might try from there w/laptop? ;3 (Go there first and then 44th Ward?) Don't know, apparently no good at that part D:

ObFuSc8 said...

If we get 15-20 together, I will get a banquet room

ObFuSc8 said...

The Ward has WiFi, confirmed.

lostsailors said...

I love this part watching everyone organize! I wish I still lived in Chicago, I totally could have walked to this one.

ObFuSc8 said...

If anyone gets there early, I know there is a Caribou coffee on the same block. It would be great if we could test connection speeds...

Rorschach said...

Crossing my fingers for a frozen donkey wheel print tomorrow (and that I can score one).

ObFuSc8 said...

Given this recent turn of events, the Frame 14 Swag Giveaway drawing may actually happen AT the venue. This might be fun, and depending who shows up...otherwise will postpone until SUN.

Jesse t said...

tomorrow will be not pennys boat. I can feel it. remember where you heard it first folks

Sam G said...

I was looking at the menu. Grilled Cheesecake. :)

mungonna said...

Grilled CHEESECAKE!!..that is sacrilegious!..the only way to save it is to pour a shot..or two..of Amaretto over it , redeeming it by heavenly taste.

Congested said...

Grrrr.. what a pain. :/

Was really hoping they'd let people have the holiday weekend off. I've been enjoying not thinking about this poster series the past few days.

I'm going to have to be creative for this one. Really not sure if I'm going to find the time to get away for a purchase. Or find a wifi spot for that matter. :s

mungonna said...

I can't imagine the GoMerch folks are all that thrilled about it either Congested,,but time is running out if its all about reaching 16 by Dec 5th or so..Then we can rest..maybe.

I decided back when it was just Paul Scheer..to go where ever this was going..well..I really wish I could afford to just hop on a plane and be there in Chi town..but instead i witness from afar. So here i am..wishing all who go,, a great time and for all of us stuck on our computers tomorrow, best of luck!

Sam G said...

Cheesecake grilled between 2 slices of poundcake with whipped cream and raspberry drizzle.

So glad I'm miles and miles away from that temptation.

kiwilostie said...

I wonder how one of those grilled cheescakes would travel....

Bill A. said...

Is there a link where you can log into your GoMerch acct early? I can't seem to find one on the site.

Congested said...

Yeah I doubt GoMerch is happy. Is this the first Saturday reveal?

In other news.. got The Barracks... looks great.

mungonna said...

Sam..its no wonder the reveal isn't on Sunday..Satan himself cooked that one up..

Congested said...

@Bill: http://huckfinnwastaken.com/dcpb/xr/body.php?module=login&id=1

...but it's still down for some reason. o_O

vabauer said...

mungonna, I'm with you, I literally just checked expedia and priceline, but given the Thanksgiving weekend and time constraints, flights are no cheaper than 500 bucks, wish I could be there but don't have as much access to cash as Ben Linus

rachelwagar said...

So is this the last print? Why is the last question mark red?

Sam G said...

Next to the last.

mungonna said...

Is any one else of the suspicion that Go Merch has kept access to accounts shut down..so there isn't any more NEW accounts created??..not that its a bad thing of course..I assume they have more accounts than they can handle now possibly?

comixguru said...

Hey LostARG Friends-

I have a plea from our friend, Andalone. She's had an accident and is in the ER. She contacted me to say she will need a poster buddy tomorrow. If anyone can help- please do. If you don't like the print, but have the funds to try for a purchase- and are willing to- please do. Thank you. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

comixguru at gmail dot com

Praying for a speedy recovery for Andalone...

lostsailors said...

oh dear, get well Andalone!

ObFuSc8 said...

Oh no, so sorry to hear that and hope she will be ok?

maven said...

Sorry to hear that news, Comixguru! I wish I could help out, but I'm not sure I can make it home in time and I know for sure I'm not very fast at this!

kiwilostie said...

Good wishes for a speedy recovery andalone.

kiwilostie said...

MEL, yeah its got the wind up me with GoMerch down for this long. Hope theyve not tried to solve any website problems etc, as we all know that hasnt worked in the past... Prolly check in tomorrow and we're being hosted by Cray Inc server!!... I wish!...

Sayid'sgirl said...

Sorry to hear about andalone's accident. Hoope she's on the mend soon.

mungonna said...

I'm sorry to see Andalone got a monkey wrench thrown in her holidays.Get well Andalone,,but I got to give it to ya..in the ER, beset by your woe..and what do you take care of? Lost Poster. Nothing like keeping clarity of vision, and presence of Mind! Definitely Lost Fan of the Day!!

Yes, Kiwi, I hope Go doesn't throw a monkey wrench in the works either. What a wild scramble it would be if we all had to re-register our accounts?? GAK!..No..seems to me its their way of keeping all this to something They Can Manage.

vabauer said...

So sorry about Andalone, hope for a speedy recovery. I think we all should try to buy it whether we like it or not, better that it remain here within the fan base, later on we can just swap or sell at cost

kiwilostie said...

Yes MEL, my vote for lost fan of the day goes to andalone too, *pulls oxygen mask from face, whispers to nurse "must.have.poster.buddy" No malice - get well soon andalone, and have a chuckle at our good wishes! :)

MEL, yes, I think the interset in this has gone far beyond what they can handle with their current IT solution. Guess they cant spend the $ now on a new 'bells-n-whistles' website just for us!

Vabauer, yes totally agree. Get it if you can.

LotteryTicket said...

Lost Fan of the Day, please be well, I have sent message via Twitter.

For the reveal we have 8, but only @Ob_FuSc8 and @Lottery_Ticket on the Twitter Feed. We have plans to video the reveal for later viewing as we suspect something's up at 44th Ward. Do not get unduly nervous if we seem to be taking a long time with URL reveal via Twitter. We will most likely be confirming URL which will be leaked thru the usual suspects. lol

After the nano-second sell out we will be reporting live from 44th Ward Dinner Party to this blog.

Thanks for all your supportive comments.

comixguru said...

Thanks to everyone who is willing to help. Your generosity is greatly appreciated! Even if we get more than one "extra" poster, there will be more than one person here that will want to buy at cost or trade. Thanks again. :)

LotteryTicket said...

P.S. one grilled cheesecake with sidecar Amaretto will be ordered and consumed. Just gonna risk it.

maven said...

Thanks, LT, for the head's up on your plans for tomorrow! If we don't hear on twitter constantly, we get really worried! LOL

vabauer said...

LT, the updates on the "after party" sound awesome, I really do wish I could be there, I think you guys will have a great time!

LotteryTicket said...

We are in contact with owner and will do our best to be courteous patrons. That said, we did tell him that in the first hour we will be singularly focus. Hope he understands.

vabauer, thanks for "everyone trying for print" comment.

Congested said...

That's horrible news CG. I wish Andalone well, and hope that someone is able to get a print to her.

vabauer said...

LT, I myself have pondered this same thing each reveal, what do the non-Losties think when all these people are walking into their place of fun/business/etc, and what exactly is that octagonal logo? If they didn't know better, they'd be making a "Mysteries of the Universe" undercover report of their own...

ChrisL said...

Unbelievable. I just woke from a dream about posters!

Hope andalone is OK.

Sounds as though you guys are going to have such fun tomorrow at 44th Ward. Wish I could be there.

back to sleep.

Just Thinking said...

Also best wishes you get of the ER ASAP Andalone.

Have fun Chicago folks!

maven said...

Wow...you Chicago people are going to have so much fun and you totally deserve every minute of it!

Get well fast, Andalone!

Charles said...

I, also, am officially looking for a poster buddy. Any interested can email me clever_kellom@yahoo.com

Anne said...

Poor andalone, hope it isn't too serious and she has an easy recovery.

For the folks who aren't able to go, I'm going to lug the DSLR downtown so you can have HIGH RES photos hahah. I promise it's not *just* to tease you with pics of fried cheesecake . . .

kiwilostie said...

Anne - thank you! Ive already been pestering the goers for pics! Hope they are photogenic...! ;)
Even if they arent, go for it!

Michael said...

Hey guys, so I just posted this on the Dark UFO forums but: I have a huge favor to ask. I’ve been following religiously from day 1, and I’ve been able to at least be online for each of the past 14 releases. However, my house's internet connection has not been fast enough for the sub-one minute posters, and on top of that, I’m going to be on a train to NYC tomorrow during the release, thus entirely negating my chances. Is there any way I could possibly get a poster buddy to help me out tomorrow?

I would be eternally grateful!

LotteryTicket said...

OK, pulling the plug, throwing the switch, calling it a night. sl-Lost article "Water-cooler Moments - Frames 1-6" should be published before I hit the road tomorrow.

I decided on "Locke Lives" for attire as this was gifted by Lost blogger Erika Olson (Long Live Locke). Seems appropriate.

Anne, if you see this post, thank you for seeing the need for DSLR. We will want mega-large files just like Tyson. Zort, be prepared.

There are now 102 followers of the Twitter List! Yikes!

Rorschach said...

Wow 102 following this reveal already? That doesn't even include folks, like me, who follow lostargs, but wont do twitter. Chances I get this print <5%. Kinda hope its one I don't like.

kiwilostie said...

Locke lives? You got your own meat suit?! wow, impressive.
lol, have a great time, Im sure you will.
I bet Ob does the Funky Chicken on the dance floor... youd be a Macarena type I think LT... hmmm, now theres an interesting picture Anne...

roxanna said...

It's been a long day here in Texas... As always, I am getting so excited for this reveal! I am looking forward to all of our Chicago fans meeting up tomorrow :)

Can't wait!
Goodnight everyone :)

Orchid7 said...

Hey everyone, usually post on Darks site but have been enjoying following along here as well so thought I would join in.
First just want to wish andalone a fast and speedy recovery.Hope everything works out for you getting a print (: Would offer to help myself but I'm on a really slow connection.
Wow a Dinner party, how fun is that, I so wish I could join in on that. Have a great time everyone and look forward to all the pics.

Hey Kiwilostie, I'm from NZ as well...so good to see another Kiwi (:

Okay good luck everyone for tomorrows reveal

Zort70 said...

That's not very good news about andalone, whishing her a speedy recovery.

Mike, you are right, I've updated the main page accordingly.

Good luck and have fun to all who have dinner reservations in Chicago, do they know what they are in for ?

Zort70 said...

While we are waiting for poster 15, why don't we cast our minds back to poster 13.

NEW POST

Ellen B said...

It's Saturday, so that means we're heading back from NC to Maryland today. I've been following the conversation during this trip and, while I'm a relative newcomer to LOST ARGs (not to LOST), I find this community very congenial, helpful, and supportive. I should be back in time for the reveal tonight. HOWEVER, success depends on a number of factors: Internet connection must be back and working, computer has to be fast enough (it never is), and I need to be in top form (which I'm not -- I'm old, what can I say?) So far, I'm 14 prints for 14, by various means. But I'm very worried about #15. If anyone is willing to help me out, let me know at ellen dot blackmun at gmail dot com. Thanks, and good luck to everyone who tries for a print!

Mandy said...

Okay so I've been lurking on here for some time, but this is my first comment. My boyfriend and I are planning on going tonight, so is there any way to get added to the list of LOST fans? Also I'm unclear as to how the purchasing works at a reveal - do we need to bring our laptop in order to get one? They don't have human beings selling them to you in person?

Anne said...

Beve said...

live in Chicago too! However, I won't be able to get there until closer to 10:30pm. I have a friend going to pick me up some swag and what not but I was curious as to how long people stay there during these events. Will people still be around by then?

Anne said...

Hi Mandy, I think the others might be offline until the reveal now - but I can keep an eye out for you, I think it may be pretty obvious where the Losties are hanging out? And yes you have to go online from the reveal, they don't sell them there. That would be too easy ;)

I'm up a crick myself for the rest of the game I think - haven't been fast enough to get any prints except two I didn't want anyway, so I'm not in the GoMerch system. I'm toast >_< At least I get to go to a reveal though.

Mandy said...

Since I live in the area I'm wondering if I should just stay home to purchase and then go out once they're all sold? It sounds like its really difficult to actually get a poster from the reveal site. If they really do have swag until 11, I don't feel as if I NEED to be there when the doors open - especially if by doing so I'm reducing my chance of getting a poster.

kmfdm11031 said...

This is going to sound bad but one thing you could do Mandy is go to the reveal grab as much swag as you can. Sell it on ebay and that will generate the money to buy the poster.

kiwilostie said...

Orchid7, Hi! that makes 2 of us that I know of. At this rate its going to take forever to take over this site! Ha!

Mat said...

Can someone help? Ok so which is a better way to get a poster to keep refreshing the main damon carlton and a polar bear or refreshing the hub page??

Sam G said...

Following along here. Getting the link and refreshing that.

Sam G said...

Mat

We've also moved to a new post for the reveal.

Mat said...

K thanks
