Taking a Trip to Jacob's Cabin 159

When it was released this poster took the title for scariest picture, however after the Ben Linus picture it might have some competition. The picture on the DamonCarltonandaPolarBear website doesn't really show the full detail of this print, and there is lots of it in the trees and plants as well as the cabin itself.

Daniel Danger stopped by on the day of the release and told us that he titled the art with the quote presented at the bottom of the picture, so the proper title is -

"And that's why my hand was shaking. Because this is not a man you go and see, this is a man who summons you."

There has been some debate about whether the person depicted in the picture is Ben or Locke. I personally am in the Ben camp, just because of the size and shape of the figure. Whoever it is the picture is not a direct lift from the show, having said that the cabin is a very good representation of what we have seen.


The picture above is from our very own Dennis and it includes some good Lost reading materials, and also illustrates that the post is quite hard to photograph as there are some refelective elements to it.

We also had this image of the poster sent to us by Illix, which has a very eclectic mixture of items holding down the corners.




The two closeups above (click for a larger image) are from Dylansdad, who has also sent this photo of the poster already framed.

And finally some signatures, from Dennis and Levittra -

First comment =O

Love the close ups - beautiful poster!
Mega jealous of all those who got their hands on one!!!

ChrisL said...

Very nice selection of pics. Hmmm, I may have to find a way to get one of these after all.

Zort70 said...

Morning all, just posted about the Live discussion tonight as well.

Matthew said...

Hello lovely people. So would anyone like to trade a jacob's cabin for a rousseaus transmission? (I havent even taken it out of its tube yet) I've been unsuccessful in getting a print since Walts Kidnapping due to bad luck and this Cabin print is just amazing.. How bout i throw in a Ron Herman "Im LOST" swag bag that i got from the Swan Station reveal?

Zort70 said...

Matthew, probably best to go here to advertise a trade.

Zort70 said...

So who thinks the next reveal will be before, on or after Thanksgiving ?

ChrisL said...

I suspect it will be a nightmare for our American friends if it's on Thanksgiving so I'm voting for before. In which case. CLUE PLEASE!

lostsailors said...

I love this poster so, so, so much. It's the only one (outside of my Ben tunnel vision) that I really, really desired. (But of course didn't get, ha!)

Hi Illix's poster!

thorsten said...

Very nice, Dennis!

Lisa said...

love that poster. I didn't think I liked it much till I saw it up close like that. Very nice ! Love the different things they hold it down with too.

Attorney Greg said...

My three year old son told me this was his favorite and that he wanted to keep it at "his" house. I am all for this, and with his approval believe I have the necessary votes (2) to make it happen - while my wife (1) assumes this would go to my office. My son then proceeded to pick out a nice spot right in the family room - perfect.

andalone said...

@ChrisL I am hoping for a Thanksgiving-ish reveal as well. My family lives in other states, so I am at loose ends on that day. I would much rather buy a poster than be trampled at the Black Friday sales as well.

ReverendMilo said...

Sorry, have to carry my last comment from the last discussion forward.


I have to say that tickle me elmo, beanie babies, and furbies are really not apt comparisons to this LFA.

First off they are not art. Art is different, they are mass produced toys. If they become classified as art, it will be decades from now in a kitsch museum. They also were not produced in such limited numbers. People will not be pulling out their copies of the elmo dvd's to rewatch back to back, from the beginning, and introducing the show to their friends and family that missed it, or to just to find details that they missed themselves.

Lost like the Prisoner has staying power. It will be rewatched and discussed 30 years from now, only unlike the Prisoner, it will have 16 limited pieces of art, books, and collectibles that will still be around too. Although I do think an original Prisoner lunchbox out grab a tidy sum.

So comparing the LFA to beanie babies, teddy rukspin, tickle me elmo, or any other fad xmas toy really is an insult IMHO to the artists that produced this work and the show that inspired it.

Ok said my peace. off to check the "accidentally on purpose" fan art pages..

Lisa said...

Cute Greg ! What does your wife think of it being in the family room ?? My van I haven't decided which room it will go in but the Barracks is going in my living room next to the painting on the wall. The problem with being a artist with a family who are all artists as well,is I already have a painting on every wall in the house. Most are larger than these prints. I think one of the bed rooms is empty though so it might go well in there.

ChrisL said...

Damn. I was hoping everyone wouldn't start jumping on the "accidentally On Purpose" fan art ARG bandwagon so early on. Next the art collectors will spot it and I'll have to through this hell all over again!

Milo, shhh please.

andalone said...

Congrats to Thorston and AmyLynn on winning the SAL drawing for Ben print!

mungonna said...

A ways back, somebody said," this print captures the mood of Lost." I concur. A quick browse of the prints as displayed below the LOST ARG logo, gives a majority impression of dark. This print is possibly the darkest.

Yet there is a character with a flashlight. But it is raining.Yet the stars shine in the back ground. So much of this print depends on the viewers perception of Jacobs Cabin. If we go strictly by Lost " mythology" ( myth!,,Ha!,,what a great choice of word!), them we (assumptive) are left with a sketchy phantasm of sorts. Possibly Horaces secluded self built place of finding himself to a adobe of the seen/not seen, heard/ not heard ,,then to eyeballs and eventually to Christian and Claire,,who have been assumed dead,but are classified as Undead by TPTB. Myths and Undead, hoboy! All the Stuff of a Geek tragedy,perhaps overwrought ,and if any flaw in this print, it is that,but it does bring me to a hint of musty mildew, the smell of an abandoned building left to the elements.

So, to me,,this print captures the feel of finding,, going back to,,Who Am I Central. The ambiguity of the character with flashlite works for me. Its not Locke,, Its not Ben. Its any one of us. Hidden away, far from all the rest, inhabited by forgotten but not dead , our Truth,,our answer to the question..Who Am I?; Jacob's Cabin resides in us all.

So, the quote of Ben strikes an augmented A7 minor chord. Ben, the deceitful..is communicating fear and trepidation about going to this place of Truth. His dread can be felt in the dreary of this print. Yet , in the far background,stars shine. Just the right balance of illumination and shadows,,forms and line, in this monotone print to bring me to a unified feel and smell.

Nothing like opening up the house, and letting the fresh air in.

andalone said...

Sorry Thorsten - I didn't mean to misspell your name. I am not yet coherent.

ReverendMilo said...

Congrats Thorsten and Amy!!!

thorsten said...

Thanks Milo and andalone, I am a bit humbled right now!

ReverendMilo said...

Humbleness not allowed. Just praise for Manda and her awesome helpers that make this community that much more awesome!

I think the Save a Lostie fund is one of the most beautiful examples of the specialness of our group.

Avondale Blog said...

mungonna - your take on the poster brought tears to my eyes. You have captured it perfectly.

ReverendMilo said...

Avondale, isn't Mel amazing with his vision?

On a side note I made another G1988 purchase the other day (my 3rd non Lost purchase from them)

Mel, do me a favor and analyze this beauty!

thorsten said...

I purchased this one last week, Milo…

Taming Light

LotteryTicket said...

Avondle Blog, we (assumptive) hope tears of joy . . . MEL thanks for your words this morning . . . waiting for these before going out the door.

A truly stunning work by Mr. Danger (an appropriate name that resides at the bottom). I had to stop myself from touching the rain. It reads (to me) comfort and anxiety, hope and fear.

mungonna said...

Avondale...AH! thank you! the kerosene lamp in my Cabin burns abit briter.

If I may.. I see that I have chose the same frame as Dylansdad.The simpler or plainer frame the better for this print, imho. Viewing distance for me.. is around the 3 foot mark. As noted.. the incredible detail work is to be appreciated. Any further away and my eyes do not serve me well. For the same reason, like the Hatch,,this print may require a nearby light source.

There is one minor mistake hanging in this print. I won't say what it is, but only some one from a frond populated place mite catch it. It doesn't distract from the print itself. Perhaps it just speaks to the " supra" of this print.

Anyways..I probably could go on and on about this print like just about all the others so far. But,,all that is needed is for the lamp to be lit,,and this print does accomplish that very well.

illix said...

Hey, I know that poster! Thanks for posting my pictures. I do have a lot of random stuff on my desk...probably ought to tidy that up.

I personally believe there's no way the figure pictured can be anyone other than Ben. Why? Because if you look closely, he's got a little messenger bag :D .

I wrote up some notes on the actual physical poster when I pulled it out of the tube...here you guys go:

It retroactively became a good idea to have slept in this morning; my Lost poster showed up, and packages have been getting stolen or damaged in the foyer of my apartment building. I was terrified that my poster would suffer a similar fate. Instead I picked it up just a little while after it was dropped off, brought it inside, and tried to open it. Tried.

Turns out getting to a Jacob's Cabin print inside its wrappings is about as hard as getting to Jacob's actual fucking cabin. Eventually I had to go get my kitchen knife to pry the end of the tube off. (Ed note: Thanks to Amy I now know I was just being a total idiot about opening it.) Then it was just a matter of carefully removing the bubblewrap, then the brown paper wrapping. I guess I shouldn't be complaining, really, since I paid a fair amount for this print.

Anyway, I eventually got it out of the tube, unrolled it on my desk, weighed it down with some random objects grabbed off my desk, and took several pictures. For the curious, it turns out the heaviest things that came to hand on my desk were: a chunk of malachite, a chunk of azurite, and a meteorite fragment; a conch shell; a die-cast B-2 1:200 scale model; and an actual paperweight (a model of a black hole in glass).

The print itself is really nice. In person, the
poster is much brighter than it seemed on the site, and the green is much more vivid. It's done on a very heavy black paper, with an almost matte feel to it - it reminds me of those art boards where you scratch away the dark surface to reveal a bright color underneath. The detail is amazing, and I have no idea how anyone has the patience to draw all of those fiddly bits of vegetation. You can clearly see all sorts of detail in the cabin, like the chair and the glasses on the table through the window. There's an additional layer of glossy strokes over it that you can see when the light hits it that look like rain. Also, parts of it glow in the dark! The phrase at the bottom, the light in the cabin, and little Ben's flashlight all glow faintly yet distinctly with the lights off. Uber creepy.

I have no idea what I'm going to do with this thing. It deserves a proper frame, and I don't know anything about frames. I suppose I'll take it across
the street to the frame place and ask what they'd recommend. For the moment, it's going back in its tube to keep it safe.

So that's Jacob's Cabin/"And that's why..." Beautiful piece of art, definitely going to look awesome.

I hate to advertise a second time, and I've already posted over at SpoilerTV, but repetition can't hurt: you know what would look pretty cool next to Jacob's Cabin? A poster of Mr. Benjamin Linus. Guess what I missed out on? Yeah. Anyone looking to sell the Ben poster (for a reasonable price - I'm somewhat impoverished) please email me at illix16 at yahoo.

Just Thinking said...

OK- seeing the poster up close makes me almost cry for not having it again. Maybe if DD puts it up for sale at his store I will have to ride down to get it!

I would almost guarantee that reveal will not be on Thanksgiving- really it's like saying they would do one on Christmas day. It would be extremely cruel of them to make GoMerch staff go in to handle poster orders on a day when just about everyone else in the country has as family time.

About the URL's-it seems to me it is really important now whether they are the known ones or new. Since we don't have the URL on the HUB page in time, if they are new the only way to find them is by having someone at the reveal. If they are old, you can still plug them in to find the right one.

Amy Lynn said...

*is FREAKING OUT excited that I won the Ben print*

LotteryTicket said...

amy lynn and thorsten, I just had simul-vision of you two running around, one inside in Maaaaalt shirt crashing into assorted furniture and cat and the other running around house in the glow of the evening sun. Was that real or surreal?

Amy Lynn said...

LOL. Not far from the truth here. I'm running around my apartment measuring things. A week a go, I only had the Smoke Monster, and was resigned to it. Now, I'm going to have Smokey, Ben and Walt. The three best prints, IMHO.

mungonna said...

Rev.." The Johnsons"..uum help me abit with that..Was that the movie.." The Jerk"..I know I saw the movie, but it was awhile back so I'm not sure of the title. But as I recall,,the movie went beyond the white boy raised by a afro-american family juxtaposition. It reached into bigger truths about what it is to be a human being. I am having a difficult time separating the movie experience from the print. The movie seemed to bog down in the middle as I recall. But the Steve Martin "insistence" held thru just as it does in this print. I suppose that is bottom line...as wacky and incongruent as the movie and this print are,,there is an " insistence" about it that is overpowering.

Eugene said...

Congratulatins on getting the Ben poster, Amy Lynn. I know you and so many others wanted this one.

@LT - I did the happy dance not too long ago about getting one of the posters I wanted so badly. Of course, mine abruptly stopped when Go Merch called.


OT - but I promised I would mention this. I tried getting the Hurley picture from the SF reveal made into an iphone skin. Gelaskins would not do it although it sounds like some were able to get it from them. I tried skinit.com and received en a-mail with the tracking number. So if you are trying to get one made you can try them.

Spot on Mel!!!

and sweet Kubric inspired print Thorsten!

Here is the one I got:
2cents "Button"

For the little ones room I picked up a Perillo:

I hope the little one gets to understand this print one day!

ReverendMilo said...

And Mel, the Jerk opens and closes with that family juxtaposition. And after contemplating the print in context, I am not sure if another image really captures it, well I guess just a thermos would do, but doesnt carry the impact that this "family portrait" does for me.

I live my life by the words of wisdom of Navin's family before he heads off into the real world:

"Lord loves a workin' man; don't trust whitey; see a doctor and get rid of it."

But the meaning of the movie is best seen in this quote I beleive:

"And that's it and that's the only thing I need, is this. I don't need this or this. Just this ashtray.

And this paddle game, the ashtray and the paddle game and that's all I need. And this remote control.

The ashtray, the paddle game, and the remote control, and that's all I need. And these matches. The ashtray, and these matches, and the remote control and the paddle ball. And this lamp.

The ashtray, this paddle game and the remote control and the lamp and that's all I need. And that's all I need too. I don't need one other thing, not one - I need this. The paddle game, and the chair, and the remote control, and the matches, for sure. And this. And that's all I need.

The ashtray, the remote control, the paddle game, this magazine and the chair.
And I don't need one other thing, except my dog.
[dog barks]

I don't need my dog. "

feel_the_insanity said...

Did I miss some drawing for the Ben poster? Or am I reading that wrong? Could have sworn I was keeping up on those comments...

Just Thinking said...

Lol Rev- I very often find myself mumbling I need this, and this, and that's all I need.... funny thing is the people around me often understand and don't just look at me like I'm nuts.

Martyn said...

Thanks Eugene for the Gelaskins info. Yet to see an email telling me no but it's probably in my junk mail which I can't check on my iPhone.

And I'll say what I said when the URL changed last week, if you remember the swan station reveal, two websites were working, which screwed a lot of people over. So my thoughts are that last weeks URL was one o the back ups for instances like that when people knownthe website.

So as this weeks was back to the known list, I see no reason why it won't stay on the known list.

On Jacobs Cabin, I really can not wait for this to arrive, from the photos i saw the other day, I was disappointed that it was quite light green but people are saying it's darker so I presume it's just that photo.

The gloss makes the photos on the main page look like it's still wet or something, which is distracting. This is definitely a poster I'll have to judge in poster. Looking forward to seeing the glow in the dark aspects of it. Sounds just the right amount creepy for me.

I hope to see a sorry we missed you card on my floor when I get home tomorrow.

ChrisL said...

A belated super congratulations to Amy Lynn and Thorsten. I am so happy for you ;-)

Avondale Blog said...

The tears were for event in my life mirroring the tone of the print that was brought out by mungonna. I've been out of work for over a year now - from a company where I worked for 24 years. Trying to re-define myself and my life at a time when I would really like to retire. (I'm a lot older than most of you) I have a disabled relative that I help care for and worries about what happens next. I'm LOST in my life. Maybe that's why I'm addicted to the TV show and all of us who try to resolve the clues. At least that's something that eventually has an answer. Thanks for listening.

mungonna said...

Rain ...rain is often the metaphor for tears. As LT put it..the experience can be two sided. The emotional flowing is personal. The artist has an.." illumination" from above the Cabin and down on to it,,from beyond the rain. Perhaps it is of the same as all the smiles in " The Johnsons" print...illuminating a Honest human moment. May it be everyone's.

Martyn said...

Oh and mungonna...

If it's the same thing that irritates me about the print, I know what you mean. If it's not, well, there's another thing that's missing from the print.

Congrats amy and thorsten, only noticed the SAL fund the day after the swan station comp closed so I was bummed about that really. Lucky you though.

Hey guys
Unfortunately my football team plays at 4:00 this Sunday instead of 1:00 because they go to the west coast.
But if anyone is still around talking at 7:00 after the game I may drop in.

Dang I thought I posted this hours ago. I went over to my mother's and when I came back he it still sit. lol

Sayid'sgirl said...

here it still set.

Walkindude125 said...

ha ha ha @ Mel,

I don't usually post comments in response to other people's comments, but I was reading this morning, and as a musician I HAVE to say one little thing:

A chord cannot be both "augmented" and "minor". The fact that it would be augmented would mean it was no longer minor, and the fact that it was strictly minor would mean it wasn't augmented. No harshness meant by this at all, trust me, I'm just about to be a college music teacher soon and I guess I'm sharpening my correction skills :)


I definitely agree with everyone's review of this print though, on another topic. Color wise it is by far the darkest print we've had this entire series so far, which has made it a bit hard to see the details up close with a lot of the lights in my apartment, but I found the perfect space right above my keyboards, and during the day you can see the whole thing perfectly, and at night the gloss rain looks amazing. I'm going to hanging Ben Linus right next to this one sometime next week when it arrives!

mungonna said...

Walk..I gave it a shot, so perhaps you can help me out. I wanted to refer to what is labeled as the Devil's Chord...My poor memory only surfaced A7 minor ..perhaps A9 minor and from somewhere, augmented came in. So,,help me out.I didn't want to use the blatant Devils Chord label,,so instead ..for correct musical annotation I should use..??

Walkindude125 said...

Ummm, well, the term "devils chord" can be tricky to nail down. As far back as early Monistery music and up untill right beofre the Clasical era, the tri-tone (which is a augmented 4th, like playing an F and a B on the piano at the same time) was called Diabolos en Musica, which was the Devil in Music. It creates alot of tension and in traditional western music always resolves, mostly to Tonic or "Do".

I think what you ment to say was a fully diminished seventh chord. This, throughout musical history has been known as a "really tense" chord, and particularly in older movies, like murder mysteries, was used to under score a shocking moment. You can hear this by playing these notes on the piano at the same time, in the same register: D-F-Ab-B. Can't you imagine eharing that after the butler says "One of you....IS A MURDERER!!!", and accompanied by some flashing lightning? That's a classic old Hollywood move.

mungonna said...

yes..the mi to fa problem. Specifically tho..i am led to believe by google..that it is the e flatted A of Saint-Saenes(spl?)/ Litz in the danse macabe that my ears remembers.

I find it amusing that the Simpsons theme is opened by a tritone,,where dissonnace and disfunctional become one.

Walkindude125 said...

"Maria" in West Side Story is a Tri-tone as well. Just a great advancement towards getting rid of limiting terms like "dissonant" and "consonant" in music. It's good to have a light/dark at times, but I don't like assigning a "good" or "bad" status to tones and intervals in my music. But when it comes to teaching the stuff, certain trends have to be kept I guess.

mungonna said...

SO..I guess the LOST Chord,,the music that accompanies the LOST Logo..is also captured overall in this print; a tritone that expands thru the octaves?

Amy Lynn said...

Actually, the entire score of West Side Story is based on the tritone.

mungonna said...

Amy..as is their "ill" fated Love.

LotteryTicket said...

not to distract from music lesson,

Is it possible that Lostpedia's transcript is incorrect and the correct punctuation in "Man Behind the Curtin" reflected in title? We'll have to make a note (get it) to be studied later.

mungonna said...

Well there it is..the allowance and accepted use of the Tritone has corrupted Mankind all the way to the Lostpedia. Its all Bach's Fault!

LotteryTicket said...

I have had my doubts about Lostpedia's transcripts. I use them frequently and often pause and stumble with , and . in odd places.

How's the desert? Must be cooler now.

Ellen B said...

Congratulations to Thorsten and Amy! Well-deserved! Now, I have one question -- how did the drawing work? (and I am definitely NOT questioning anything about it or the results).

mungonna said...

LT..for the week or so..mid 70's for high..mid 50's for low..Mostly clear blue sky with a scattering of high cirrus to break up the monotony. The sun is warm and the shade is cool. Chances look good for a lot of folks doing TDay outside.

Have you had enough snow yet for you and yours to enjoy?

Ellen B said...

Wow! The comments seem really slow today. I won't be able to participate in the live chat in a short while. But I have lots of good news today. I managed to find a Ben Linus print from a trusted seller, we're on our way to pick up a Blu-Ray player (with BD-live of course), I ordered Season 5 in the Blu-Ray format, and put the remaining Seasons on my Amazon gift list, and purchased some interesting art prints from the artists we have all discovered over the last few months!

I chose the winner of my Swan Station print for the lottery I was having at http://bannedwidth.org. Ken has yet to contact me back yet. If I don't hear back from him by Monday evening, i'll pick another name.

Ken, if you read this, check your gmail!

mungonna said...

Ellen B...I hope its only my system..but I've been having problems with this blog for the last hour or so. I've had to login again twice.

I don't know the specifics since I haven't gone there yet,,but apparently at DarkUFO..is it..there is a Save the Losties effort set up for those who didn't get but want one..and those who got one and are ready to let it go..Names are randomly drawn and winners are determined...i suppose.

Sounds like Christmas is a tad early for you and yours. Enjoy!

Capcom said...

Just a cautionary word of chemistry: be careful with using nail polish remover on plastic for gluey tags, it usually contains acetone, and if not acetone some other solvent, all of which can eat away or at the very least dull plastic. If your frame has glass only it's not a problem. But any plastic like acrylic or plexiglass, etc, could "melt" with polish remover. The most innocuous or inert means of removing sticker glue without destruction, is pure mineral oil, works like a charm on 99% of the tags I've had to get off of my collectibles. I always start there first before trying out the solvents. JM2C. :-)

Martyn said...

Is it bad of me to hope Ken doesn't pick up his email?

Zort70 said...

Just left the podcast, they are all still discussing so it's not too late to join in.

Back tomorrow morning.

Ginger said...

How do you listen in on discussion? Couldn't figure it out:( Just got here.

Martyn said...

Also, it seems that we can't login to check our orders anymore, just th massive sold out banner. Lame.

Congested said...

BIG thanks to everyone for stopping by. Expect to see the podcast up soon.

Maybe we'll do this again before everything is done, and then again to recap.

LotteryTicket said...

Thanks Congested for hosting the LostARG podcast. My first podcast,so not sure if I made any sense? You can make me sound brillant, right?

JPL said...

@Congested - Thank you for allowing us to join in on the podcast. Know that we strayed a bit... need a longer leash the next time.. :)

@LT - First time for me as well. Luckily Congested is the master of editing.

LotteryTicket said...

JPL, you'd never know. I missed the first 30 minutes due to technical difficulties. So looking forward to hear your comments.

Congested said...

Uh... well don't expect this to sound like David and Steve. ... Audio quality is lacking, and I'm just going to edit out some of the pauses and randomness.

While I did do the podcast last summer, I don't have the geeked out audio set up here. :/

But seriously thanks for calling in LT and JPL... couldn't have done this without you both. :)

Congested said...

And big thanks to Zort as well.

Feel better. =O

LotteryTicket said...

For everyone that came into the chat room portion of TalkShoe, thank you. Listening, talking, reading and typing proved more difficult than expected. Once the talk button pushed, then the read button failed, etc. lol

MWolverine said...

The link I had been using to check on status of ordered posters doesn't seem to be working anymore. It now just has an image that says "sold out". Does anyone know where to go to check order status now?

Capcom said...

The status link usually takes a few days to go back to normal after a sale, for some reason. Keep checking every day. I know, it's a weird set-up, for sure.

andalone said...

Unexpected guests arrived about a half hour into podcast, so I missed most of it. Can't wait to hear the discussion!

MWolverine said...

capcom - Thanks for the info. Every time I've checked before it's been working. I must not have checked on Sunday before. Or maybe the Friday reveal messed up the timing.

Inna said...

rachelskid here. where did SAL move to exactly? i remember it from its inception and contributed to the fund, but where is it now? the last one i see on spoiler tv is for walt's kidnapping?? i wish i could have gotten in on jacob's cabin. :(

Seems to me..the introduction of the SOLD OUT banner where usually by this time is the ability to check order status, aligning with the sale of The Barracks, with its attending apparent screw up in order number cancellations..is more than coincidental. But of course, I'm a stark raving lunatic. I hope this post acts as a goudy,,and I'm proven wrong..Of course then, somebody else will be proven right...So...hows this going to play?

Congested said...

@MEL: feel free to post in the thread I've set up at spoilertv regarding your barracks request:

http://www.spoilertv.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=98&t=13176

@andalone: sorry you missed it, but we may do it again. Hoping for more callers next time, though really happy JPL & LT called in adding to Zort and I.

andalone said...

@congested looking forward to hearing it. I had opportunity to type a few lines in chat before doorbell rang.

LotteryTicket said...

MEL I have your Barracks, Need address

ObFuSc8 said...

Sorry guys -- I would have liked to have called in, but that would probably have meant you'd have heard me at work! Crazy work schedule with 10-11 days straight, so I am happy just to get home.

Zort70 said...

Morning all, still full of cold, but definitely not flu at the moment.

Martyn said...

Hope you feel better Zort, tis the season of a million sneezes.

I'm guessing as there's no clue this morning, it's definitely not a pre-thanksgiving reveal.

It'll take us until Wednesday with no clue to realise there's no reveal taking place this week.

Zort70 said...

Yes things might be a bit quiet this week.

ChrisL said...

Morning Zort - Get well soon.

That was a great live discussion last night. Well done Congested for keeping that under control and it was great to hear the contributions.

I did notice in the chatroom that there was mention of the hidden skull in the Dharma Van print which a lot of people haven't seen... I remember someone posting a link to some amazing pictures they'd taken but can't find the post. I think it was Milo or Thorsten. Would you mind posting that link again please?

Fascinating discussion and I hope to participate in the next.

ChrisL said...

That's the one andalone, thanks for that. Such great pictures, hopefully those in the room last night will read this today and check them out.

JPL said...

Morning All -

Zort hope you're feeling better. Seems as I may have picked up whatever you may be suffering from. Didn't know colds could be transmitted via a podcast. Was a great time!

I'm up for a late week/weekend reveal. Let us all that will be celebrating, including our friends at DCAAPB, enjoy a quiet F5 free Thanksgiving.

Just be kind and give us a sign as I've yet to figure how to carve a turkey and explain to the family why I'd need to have my laptop on the dinner table.

ChrisL said...

lol @ JPL! I can picture all the US losties doing that same thing! Great to hear you last night.

Zort70 said...

Yes, it was a good discussion last night, that carried for quite some time after I left apparently.

ReverendMilo said...

Sorry I missed the discussion, my toddler had zero interest in it and wanted to play playdoh instead. She's a slave driver.

I look forward to hearing the podcast when I get "me" time.

:)

Sayid'sgirl said...

This may be the last reveal in the conventioinal way since Thanksgiving is this week.
If there's no reveal this week, print 15 can be revealed nexted week and print 16 can be found in another fashion.

Maybe at LU or on the show or during a commercial in the show or probably some other completely different way. :)

Sayid'sgirl said...

Or even next week.
To early to be typing.

Just Thinking said...

Have to still get my LU reading list books out of the living room and the Transmission up on the wall before I bake the pumpkin pie and make the cranberry relish. On, no- they can't give us clues this week!

Hope you are well soon, Zort.

mungonna said...

Good Morning All. The sun just broke the horizon after coloring the cirrus feathers. And to further brighten the day there is LT offering The Barracks. WOW!

LT, you are beyond awesome. Let me see if corporate email will allow emailing to go mail. I've had problems previously.

despite no clue this a.m., i got another clue to the generosity and degree folks here go to, to help each other out. May I some day live up to the standard you all have set.

Eugene said...

I just wanted to take a minute to thank a fellow Lostie for the Daniel Danger print. This is such a great, supportive and generous community.

Lisa said...

I got my Barracks poster from another wonderful Lostie that decided they didn't need it. The Losties around here are a very caring bunch. Wonderful group we have !

Zort70 said...

Wow everyone is spreading the love today :-)

Thanks for all the well wishes, I'm living with a very annoying cough at the moment.

Capcom said...

Happy Monday Argies. :-)

The "wewerecaughtinanet" status page isn't up still this morning, in case anyone wants to know. I can't understand why Gomerch can't just put a status link at the bottom of the page with the privacy and rules of the road links, sheesh.

Amy Lynn said...

Sorry I missed the chat last night. My friend's show opened off-Broadway, so I was there, and then at Sardi's to party! :)

Zort, hope you're up and well soon.

Zort70 said...

Sounds like a fun evening Amy.

How did the opening night go ?

Zort70 said...

By the way I'm up, just not 100% with it :-)

TabulaRasa said...

Good Morning/Afternoon

Missed the discussion yesterday (kids actually wanted to eat dinner early). Is this recording posted somewhere?

Cheers

Amy Lynn said...

Opening was awesome. This is us at the party: http://i367.photobucket.com/albums/oo120/room317als/13533_214917320995_695345995_462383.jpg

ChrisL said...

Lovely pic Amy.

ChrisL said...

Just had a call from my framing guy. Love Triangle is ready. I may have to leave work early and pick it up. Excited.

Sam G said...

Wonder if I should start worrying = I live in SoCal and I haven't received The Barracks yet?

andalone said...

You really had a spectacular day yesterday! That is a lovely color on you.

Amy Lynn said...

Thanks, guys!

andalone said...

Previous post meant for AmyLynn. I am a non-functioning moron this morning.

Zort70 said...

TabulaRasa - The recording will be available soon, there was enough discussions for two podcasts so it will probably be split into two segments.

TabulaRasa said...

Thanks Zort. Can't wait!

Just Thinking said...

Looks like a fun, elegant time Any Lynn.

Capcom said...

Elegant indeed, Amy. Sigh, I miss NY so much.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Hey, strangers - just wanted to let you know that we'll have some previews from the season 5 DVDs over at The Lost Community!

Capcom said...

Awesome Melissa, and howdy!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hey Melissa!
That's cool I'm on my way to take a look.

TabulaRasa said...

Very cool Melissa. Thanks

ImAnnie/Davide said...

(sorry)
PLEASE, if anyone is interested in a trade (My beautiful Jacob's Cabin for Smoke Monster) PM me (ImAnnie on spoilertv) or write me to dvdbos at gmail dot com.

Thanks.

Martyn said...

Just got back from my trip and sad to say that neither Jacob's Cabin or my Polar Beer t-shirt on here. But I did update my blogger photo to a polar bear that I saw at my retreat.

Hmmmm, what to do without clues?

ChrisL said...

So the season 5 DVD/Blueray is not released until 8th December in the US? It's available in the UK now though?

ChrisL said...

And does anyone know if we are going to get the Dharma Initiation Kit in the UK or is it a US only release?

comixguru said...

@Martyn- it's only bad if it's bad that I hope you don't like JC. ;)

comixguru said...

Good Morning all!

Hope everyone had a great weekend.

Here's a thought. since we most likely will not have a reveal this week- it seems very likely that the 15th reveal will be the first week of December with the 16th the following week. That following week, the Season 5 dvd will be released in the US. Perhaps the clues for the reveal will be "found" in the dvd sets?

highly unlikely, but just a thought...

ChrisL said...

comixguru, I like your thinking. It's the kind of cross-marketing that I'd love them to do but would they... As I mentioned, the Blueray is actually available in the UK now and I think an international release date would have been appropriate if there are clues...

Sayid'sgirl said...

I've always been curious why a US show is releasaed in the UK first.

Zort70 said...

Sayid'sgirl, it's only fair as the TV show always airs in the US first :-)

ChrisL said...

It is a bit of a strange move, particularly with the Lost University content. I would have expected a simultaneous release.

Sayid'sgirl said...

zort
To true. :)

Zort70 said...

The LU content only activates in the 8th of Dec so it will be simultaneous.

Anyway to move things along, and in lieu of a clue, I've created a quick poll.

NEW POST

Dave said...

Looking to purchase or trade for this Jacob's Cabin print. Please let me know if you have one. It is a gift for my wife and am hoping to find one soon. Thanks,
