Ugly Duckling or Beautiful Swan Station ? 307

Ok, so the 10th poster is The Swan Station, at first glance it is far simpler than the other posters and doesn't really depict a specific Lost moment. That might actually be its beauty, that it is simple but full of symbolism.

The Swan depicted is not an image that has been used on the show, and anyone hanging this on a wall will have a lot of explaining to do when asked about its significance. On closer inspection of the real print the Swan also has a red and black eye which to my mind makes it look slightly evil.

However simple it appears on the surface there are a few Lost elements here, the I Ching symbols that are part of the Dharma Bagua, the dark / light conflict, the countdown clock symbols, and the lines that could depict water for the Swan to float on, but I think it is more likely to symbolise the electromagnetic radiation that the Swan Station is trying to contain.

So on to some pictures of the print now it has started to arrive, the first below is from Patmc, Pat sent a couple of pics in but I chose this one as it has another Lost reference in it. Tell us what you think it is in the comments.


Some closeups of the elements :


Mike has let us know that the Swan eye on his poster is slightly different.

The assumption is that this is part of the nature of hand pulling the silk screen prints, that there will be subtle variations.




The timer clock symbols from the show

As always some signatures, thanks to Comixguru, ReverendMilo, MEL and Patmc :






Finally some statistics, as Twitter is used a lot for reporting back and spreading the word, these are a couple of stats about the hashtags #Lostarg and #Lost from around the time of the reveal they stats were taken a day apart but you can compare the day of the poster reveal. :

Underrated. Maybe not the best, but I like it very much.

Lostie said...

Looks awesome. Still waiting for mine... It sucks living overseas.

Zort70 said...

Lostie, you are right, I'm waiting for three prints at the moment !

Chris said...

Great pics - It looks stunning, can't wait for mine.

Mike said...

Got my print yesterday... and I am in Australia. My swan print doesn't have the red/black eye. Only black...

Zort70 said...

Mike, so is this a printing error ?

Could you link to or send a picture in for comparison ?

Lostie said...

Awesome Mike. I live in Aus as well so that should mean mine should arrive any time soon. I received my Love Triangle and Numbers prints yesterday. Even though they are described two of the 'worst ones' I really like them. What prints are u waiting for zort?

Mike said...

Just mailed in a pic.

Chris said...

I received my Love Triangle this morning, that took around 4 weeks to the UK. Have to admit that I'm pretty impressed by the quality of the print, so much better than I expected. Pleased.

Zort70 said...

Thanks Mike, I've updated the main post with your pic.

Lostie, I'm waiting for The Numbers, Walt's Kidnapping and Jacob's Cabin.

I ordered The Numbers just before Walt's Kidnapping, I might have even got the last order in for that as it went to Sold out immediately after purchase.

Lostie said...

I agree with Chris. Took me 3 weeks to get them.. Nice picks Zort. I didnt like Walt's Kidnapping as much though im so sad that I missed out Jacob's cabin by seconds. I wish they did a print that was on a more important event of the Exodus ep.

Amy Lynn said...

Looks great, but not my style.

Masheen said...

The Swan Station is just awesome. It's a good representation of Season 2 with the glyphs and parts of the Dharma Symbol.

In a perfect world we'd get the hatch painting AND the blast door map as screen prints too.. but I know how it is... there are way too many WCMs still to cover w/ the other four prints

Lostie said...

I really do hope that they do this every few years. The whole concept of Lost prints is awesome.

Masheen said...

err... did we have a WCM from Season 4 so far? Or 5? Little strange isn't it?

Lostie said...

Hmmm.. You are right Masheen. The better do one of The Incident. One of the best episodes of all time.

Sam G said...

Art is art. I prefer the more detailed posters.

do the previous poster sites correspond to their frames. i mean was frame one created before frame two?

Great pics!

UGLY DUCKLING!
Mr. Jones dropped the ball on this one. Considering how nice and detailed his other work is.

Capcom said...

Interesting post Zort!

Although I agree that this poster is not too representative of the station itself, I like that the color scheme represents the countdown clock, and that it shows the glyphs.

The eye color difference is more likely a result of an offset in the screen stencil overlay, not necessarily that it was hand screened, as this can happen with auto and hand screened prints. What's interesting is that the eye is printed with both colors, not just the black -- probably to make the black seem deeper with the addition of the red. All the black areas may be double screened with both colors too, I can't tell.


Tim, were you serious when you said in the last thread that you were surprised that so many women like Lost? I don't understand that, since there are enough deeply fleshed out female stories in the show to appeal to a wide range of women's concerns and interests. You know, like murder, heheh, j/k.

Walkindude125 said...

The Other Lost reference in this pic is the Stephen King Book behind the swan print. Maybe even Carrie??

Zort70 said...

Capcom, now I'm scared :-)

Capcom said...

LOL

Zort70 said...

Walkindude125, yes that's what I was referring to, although we will have to wait for Pat to be online to confirm the title of the book,

tim armstrong said...

i just always assumed lost was followed by nerdy dudes. i honestly didn't know there was a big following of women and even, dont take it the wrong way, housewifes and professional women.

as with most sci fi, i figured the followers were mostly guys.

oh, as far as the eye goes. that is a product of the screen print process. some times things get out of registration. that being said if you shouldn't be able to see the red in the eye, that should have been caught and removed from the run. it should have then been destoyed. that is a pretty big off registration and i dont think it should have passed quality control.

Amy Lynn said...

tim, if you'd ever watched the show, you'd get it.

Capcom said...

Now, Amy, let's keep it nice here and not make Zort have to call a time-out. We try to keep our blogs friendly and insult-free. :o)

Oh I see Tim, no offense taken at all, just curious. But you must know that there are a ton of us SciFi nerdy chicks out there too. Remember, during the first Star Trek series Leonard Nimoy got more fan mail from women than Shatner did because they/we/I thought that Spock was sexier than Kirk. :-)

Well if nothing else, the screen offsets make them even more unique and one-of-a-kind. You know what the clothing tags say sometimes, "All imperfections are intended and unique to each product and are not to be considered a defect, blah, blah..."

tim armstrong said...

amy please give it a rest. i do watch the show.

any you're right this is lots of cheesy love crap you girls. even my wife thinks the love stories in lost are boring.


i just looked at my swan and you can see a sliver of red. pretty much like the second picture on the front page. i really think the first one is out of register because the red is on the opposite side and larger. i would have thought d&l would have caught that and tossed it out.

Amy Lynn said...

Capcom, sorry, didn't think what I said was insulting.

LOSTB said...

How was John-Paul able to print out a copy of the Locke's Secret? Are there scans of the posters floating around? I would love to get ahold of a Locke's Secret scan even if its not the real thing, just to have.

tim armstrong said...

amy finds it fun to say that i dont watch the show because i like ben and am surprised women like the show so much.

like a lot of people out there i've watch the show for a long time, live since season two, but dont get involved with the online communities or games. people like amy and mel who hold themselves above us really show a sorry side of "lost fans." just because you dont know us and just because we dont go to comic con or write fan fiction doesn't mean we aren't fans.

Amy Lynn said...

I have never been to ComiCon, or written fan fiction.

tim armstrong said...

i consider your quilt to be a form of fan fiction.

Amy Lynn said...

What quilt? That's not me.

mungonna said...

The Swan. Yea, This is one poster print that is really pretty in real life. Theres just something about it being in front of you. It brings a smile to your face. The red is as brite as ,,oh..the sign above a ice cream palor. The black.the black is as dark as the “closed" sign and the coffee you end up opting out for.
The rest… is so simple. How we humans communicate; Symbols, Chinese, Egyptian hieroglyphics. Add some caffine and you don’t want it to end…you can’t. Words, symbols just complicate, obfuscate, intricate the simple Truths of us. Humans. We’re all connected.. Breton called that “ connectivity” Magnetic Field Lines…Lost turned them into the emissions from the rock under the Swan,,a cold stone from the universe. Science was defeated by it. Not the thing to be grasped by the logic of Science. Logic ended up putting a wall of cement around it. Fears do the same. And eventually even the wall was done away with..The energy flowed, and flowed.

Capcom said...

OK, well anyway, time-out......yes Lost stories span across many demographic types I'd say. There's just about something for everyone there, except for people who can't really get into extremely complicated plot twists. Yep, I don't get into the schmaltzy love stuff much either. And Kate's emotional fickleness really ticks me off as much as it does Sawyer, but oh well.

Maybe John-Paul already had some of the images saved that people have taken of their posters (or remembered where to go to find them), so he just pulled one up at the theater's office computer and printed it out. Great move on his part!

Zort70 said...

Tim, the quilt was created by Maven.

Zort70 said...

There are several sources of these images over the web now.

It isn't be too hard to print one out at A4 or even A3 size quite quickly.

I've printed out The Crash on A4 at home.

Masheen said...

what mungonna said.

Masheen said...

and please stop arguing about L O S T ... argue bout the scalpers yes... but not L O S T ... good lord

tim armstrong said...

sorry about the mix up amy.

still give it a rest. you can continue to dog me and say i dont watch the show or you can just try to forget about me.

PessimisticLines said...

Anyone know how to get in touch with Tyson? Do I just call the 888 gomerch number or what? I'm having a problem with my frame 12 order. Thanks.

Amy Lynn said...

Pessimistic, try tgcustomerservice@gmail.com

PessimisticLines said...

Thanks Amy. I'll try that.

Capcom said...

Once at work I was training another maintenance tech from Quebec and he said that they have a saying there: "The showers of your insults roll off of the umbrella of my indifference." Sorry I can't remember how to say it in French, but the meaning is the same. :o) Peace, Losties. xo

Zort, what does A4 mean? Tx.

Zort70 said...

A4 Definition

International Standards Organization (ISO) standard-size typing paper, 210 MM wide and 297 MM tall (about 8 1/4 x 11 3/4 inch), used in Europe, and rest of the world, except the US and some neighboring countries where 'letter-size' paper (8 1/2 x 11 inch) is used. See also paper sizes.

Zort70 said...

Actually this is a better explanation of all the sizes.

Capcom said...

Ah-ha! I never knew the ISO standards for paper. Thanks Zort. :-)

feel_the_insanity said...

The Swan really looks beautiful, I can't wait to see it up close when I go home for Thanksgiving break. Would sure love to see And That's Why My Hand Was Shaking...in person, sigh.

I said this early, but I'd like to reiterate. The Terry O'Quinn sighting is just a bonus to this awesome ARG. I'd like to take this time, while things are a little slow, to thank Zort, LotteryTicket and everyone else who really makes thing fun. I'd be pulling my hair out right now if we didn't have LOSTArgs.com!

John-Paul said...

In all honesty, what I wanted to do, was drive home and get my Crash poster, but he chose the shortest movie we had, and with with rush hour, I wouldn't have made it back in time to catch him.

Capcom said...

Good thinking on your feet John-Paul!

OT: does anyone know how to make a post on a Google blog remain at the top of all the posts and stay there? Tx.

Amy Lynn said...

Capcom, can you date the post 2011 or something like that?

Zort70 said...

Capcom, is it a Blogger blog ?

If so then I don't think you can, but what I have done in the past is alter the layout and added a HTML widget in the main section of the blog.

Create your blog post using the normal method, in draft, then copy all of that to the Widget.

Zort70 said...

You wouldn't be able to get comments on it though.

Capcom said...

I think that you can, but I'm not sure if it wouldn't post until that date, as far as I know now. Because you can predate a post, and then it doesn't come up until that date occurs. What I want to do is post the hours of a museum at the top of this blog ( http://daisysplacemuseum.blogspot.com/ ), and have it remain there, preferably without an arbitrary future date at the top. It may be impossible not to do that though. I guess that I'll have to read through the customizing pages, ugh.

Capcom said...

OK, I'll try that too. Thanks Zort and Amy!

JT said...

Zort- I mentioned that you got the last poster from England to someone and was told that there are lots of connections between the UK and US, so that might have helped. I'm trying to see if there's any hope at all for me-did you really have a hamster driven speed or something better for getting Jacob's Cabin?

Zort70 said...

Capcom, email me as I've set up an example for you.

Zort70 said...

My connection speed at home is 2mb at the outside. This is shared by our whole village !

At the time of purchase I got all the refresh problems that everyone else had. I think I was just lucky to time my refresh with the Buy Now appearing.

JT said...

Thank you Zort- You give me hope to try again if there is another poster that calls.

Chris said...

So zort, come reveal do the rest of the village close down their browsers for you?!

Most of the girls I know love their sci-fi... I'm soo lucky!

Scoutpost said...

Good morning all! Happy Veteran's Day...thanks to all our military!

Still can't believe the O'Quinn sighting. I am keeping that pic open because I just like to look at TOQ and his smiling face!

Nice pics of the Swan print. Glad everybody is pleased with the purchases. All of these really are nice and even with the disappointments we need to remember what cool TPTB we have to do this for the fans. What other show has ever done this for the fans...nada I think. So if they are cosmically listening, thanks Damon and Carlton!

masheen said...err... did we have a WCM from Season 4 so far? Or 5?
Little strange isn't it?


Agreed. Surely they'll come up with some S4 and 5 ones I hope.

tim armstrong said...

with four posters left. and the possibility of the last being something different, that leaves three to cover season 4 and 5. i have a feeling that one of them will be a season one moment. i dont know if thats good odds or not.

you are right this is an unprecedented mingling of fans, art, and the powers that be. i dont see it happening with another show and dont remember anything like this before. it would be great to see a second series of prints, but i dont know if that is likely or not.

ReverendMilo said...

Do you think Darlton heard about me ironing my print?

ROFL

Adam said...

The top 5 WC moments/scenes remaining in my opinion would be:

-Black Rock
-Not Penny's Boat
-Frozen Donkey Wheel/The Orchid
-Some depiction of Man of Science vs. Man of Faith (hopefully done by Shepard Fairey)
-The Island

I'm sure I am missing some obvious ones but what would everyone else like to see conveyed in print form?

MeSoCrazy said...

*sneaks in with a umbrella to use as a shield*

I kind of think the first flash forward "we have to go back" was quite the WCM.

*quickly walks back out because ouch that apple really hurt*

Amy Lynn said...

@MeSoCrazy, I agree that's a great moment. Although, it wasn't a surprise to me. I immediately knew from the start that it couldn't possibly be a flashback.

The LOST writers DID fool me on Ji Yeon, however.

Adam said...

@ Mesocrazy

I agree 100%

maven said...

I'm the crazy LOST quilt lady! And I'm proud of my creation and my LOST obsession! LOL

And I'm a crazy LOST fan who also happens to be female and quite older than most of you people! (59...I'm not ashamed to say.) I have always enjoyed sci-fi and movies, books and television shows that think outside the box. And, although quite a few of my friends (and even my hubby) think I'm over the top when it comes to LOST, it has opened up a whole new world to me on my laptop and I've met the best group of people here and over at Facebook!
I don't know if I'll have this experience again. :)

And, btw: Thanks to our Veterans and those currently serving our country now.

tim armstrong said...

just to be clear, it's great that this show appeals to more than just geeky dudes. it's great that people make quilts. i just didn't realize, i didn't want to make anyone mad.

black rock
island disappears
bomb going off
polar bear
locke in casket

some stuff that would make a good print

Eugene said...

Hi all. Just getting a chance to catch up today.

2 WCM stick out for me. Opening and ending scenes from season 2. Both times I thought for a minute that I was watching something else, not Lost.

Zort70 said...

I just put a link on the main page to Congesteds Audibly Lost blog where there is a video of Paul Scheer on the Casron Daly show.

kiwilostie said...

Got a card in the mail yesterday - package waiting at the PO. Thatll be the Swan. Get it later today.
I really liked this one when it dropped. Really wanted something with the glyphs, and there it was. Darlton said they should be read as 'underworld', but there is also a fairly direct translation of 'die'. Fits perfectly, as when all those glyphs are showing, theres a good chance youre going to die (if no failsafe key however), and when thats going on, the the Swan is disintegrating/destroying itself, and there you have the somewhat angry look on the Swan. Great stuff. I believe RJ wanted to call it the "Cygnet Committee" - great name I thought.
Anyway, once Ive seen it in person, I may add to this thread again!

Attorney Greg said...

My spidey senses* tell me a clue will appear today at 3:13 pm or 11:13 pm EST.

*I should disclaim that my spidey senses are neither particular (hense the two different times) nor accurate.

Zort70 said...

Attorney Greg, I'm not going to bed that early tonight !

Zort70 said...

So it has to be 11:13 pm EST

Eugene said...

If we get one in the next 2 or 3 hours do you think it will still be for a Thursday reveal, Spidey? That would work best for me!

RobPerrin said...

Speaking of Ji Yeon...I re-watched all of Season 4 over a couple of days last week. Great season. Especially sharp dialogue in the first 5 or 6 eps. Loved all the winks to fandom.

Zort70 said...

Difficult to say if it will be confirmed tonight, or whether we will have one more hint.

feel_the_insanity said...

Does the audio work for anyone on that Paul Scheer interview? Not working for me...

Amy Lynn said...

@feel, it works for me, it's just really low.

maven said...

The audio worked for me, too.

Congested said...

Sorry about the video quality. Was the best I could do as I missed the east coast version an had to stream the west coast version as I was sleeping.

I think I'll be able to get a better version in the next day or two with the full interview for those interested.

PessimisticLines said...

Anyone else use a PayPal Debit/MasterCard to buy Lost prints? I was freaking out this morning as PayPal refunded my Daniel Danger print payment today but it still says authorized on Ronie Midfew Arts. I called GoMerch and they said that's normal, that the money will come back out when the print ships. Anyone have this experience before?

reAnimated said...

@Pessimistic, yup. Thats happened to me everytime.

melissarenee311 said...

@ amy~ i posted this under the new clue section, so if you see it there too, im sorry to be redundant. i saw that you think you might make it to the reveal, and might try to get extra swag. i know thats alot of MIGHTS but im in south eastern us and they havent done a single reveal down here. if you are able to pick up extra swag i would gladly pay you for it and postage. i contacted tptb and pleaded with them to do a reveal somewhere down here, but im sure it was a futile effort. the closest major city to me is atlanta which is a good 4 hrs but i would drive it if they did one there. i also got my hopes up when we thought the last reveal might be in flordia, but again to no avail, because it ended up being yet ANOTHER Cali reveal. anyways, if you are able to, my email is the same as my name here, at aol. i know i dont post a lot of comments, but i do follow the site multiple times a day, so please dont write me off as a troll or something to that affect. anyhow thanks either way, and congrats to everyone who is getting to participate in this whole thing first hand. ~melissa

Amy Lynn said...

@melissa, I just emailed you.

roxanna said...

amy lynn,
I'm sure you've gotten plenty of requests, but I would like to put my request at the bottom of that list if there is room. I have something small for your troubles :)

Thanks!

(posted this on the other comments, as well)

Attorney Greg said...

@Zort - isn't the 4th hint the reveal (not so much of a hint as a nudge or push).

It would not surprise me to see the reveal tomorrow with the 4th clue/time reveal today (@11:13 of course).

ObFuSc8 said...

Hello ARGers!

Hmmm...no clue...TYSON, where are you?

So probably not a reveal today, then -- I hope?

Trying hard not to post anything about the assumption above that only nerdy guys like sci-fi.

Amy Lynn said...

I don't think we've ever had four clues without a time?

ObFuSc8 said...

Amy Lynn I'd LOVE some swag too, if you can swing it. But at this point I guess the list is getting way too long. :)

The Kharma Initiative said...

When I think of the hieroglyphs in The Swan Station translating to 'underworld', and I see them placed over an image of waves, I think of the River Styx and the ferry to the afterlife (in this case, the ferry is in the shape of a Swan).

Amy Lynn, good luck tomorrow at Spin, and thanks for chancing a print on us! I'm following you on twitter.

Cosmically Yours

ObFuSc8 said...

No new clue yet do I see, so it's back to work for me!

MeSoCrazy said...

Amy Lynn

I would like to put in a request as well.

When you get the URL make sure that it's for a poster I don't want. Or if it is a poster I want, help me find a way through the powers of good thoughts and magical potions fight through the 5 seconds we'll have, to buy said poster. I'd really appreciate it.

Sorry. I'm not at all trying to dig at other's requests, truly. I'm simply trying to put these so called positive energies out there for me because I'm selfish and because I need them in order to not throw myself into a wall.

Amy Lynn said...

MeSoCrazy, LMAO.

Justin said...

Just watched the Paul Sheer interview...LOL

can't wait to get my one of a kind artworks from Ronald Mif-Dew!

Sayid'sgirl said...

@tim armstrong
I don't think you made anyone mad.
I think all of us women here are just surpised that you didn't realize that women love scifi too. :)

capcom
My mom is one of those women who loved logical Spock, but she didn't write fan mail. She also loved Andre Norton.

Masheen said..
and please stop arguing about L O S T ... argue bout the scalpers yes... but not L O S T ... good lord

No offence but please everyone quit arguing about the scalpers. Argure about anything but the scalpers. I'm so sick of that. The horse is dead quit beating it.
I use to check in here several times a day every day. Now I come here once or twice a week.

MeSoCrazy said...

Sayid'sgirl that's makes me sad. I feel to new (though lately I feel like I've been wiping my bacon grease all over this site) to suggest a cyber group hug. I offer a tiny cyber fist bump and hope you accept.

Scoutpost said...

@Justin- hey I got the tote bag the other day...thanks!!

Patmc said...

Zort - good call on the background book from my poster pic. :-)

Actually it is from the Dark Tower series... but it is from book 4, The Wizard And Glass. It was the biggest book that was handy... and figured that putting a Stephen King book in contact with The Swan might create a spacetime rift or something interesting. Alas... no wormholes or anything, but at least I still have the awesome poster to look at... :-)

Amy Lynn said...

MARK: Why didn’t you call Chris for the REAL URL, huh? You could've spoken up for me.

WEDECK: And said what? There's a perfectly good explanation why you're having trouble detecting a fake URL from the spoiled ones, something the rest of us have lasered into our brains? See this is my own damn fault. Midfew's just asking you questions I should've asked weeks ago, but I didn't because I trusted you.

[Mark scoffs.]

WEDECK: And I went with this whole LostARGs thing in the first place because I believe in you, Mark.

MARK: And I have gotten you results.

WEDECK: [angry] That's not an answer. Now Midfew may be a total jerk but she's right about one thing. Your story's got more holes than the time travel storyline. Why can't you remember everything?

MARK: [yells back] Because I was loaded, okay?!

maven said...

Just wondering why tptb are only allowing fans at the reveal site only ONE swag per person. Obviously, there is only a handful of fans able to show up at the site and everyone is requesting them to grab one for them. They should allow...I don't know...ten each...so that it can be given to fans unable to get to any reveal site. Spread the wealth!

Amy Lynn said...

@maven, I don't think that's the case at all. In Glasgow, each person got like 10 or 15 Widmore boards.

maven said...

Hope that continues. I just remember at Rusty's there were all these Hurley shirts sitting there and all the fans had left and they said I can only have one. (I used subterfuge to grab a few more!)

maven said...

And number 108 again!

Anonymous said...

LOST viewers are not all young nerdy dudes.

Female viewers of LOST don't all watch it because of the quad-angle either. Personally I can't stand that aspect of the show, i'm neither a dude, a nerd or all that young biologically though i'll admit to being a LOST geek.

I doubt that there are 6-10 million young nerdy dudes in the U.S. the approximate number of viewers of the show not counting those who DVR/Tivo the episodes or watch online. I don't know what the numbers are worldwide.

The demographic target audience of this show isn't aimed at young nerdy nudes, maybe thats why the posters sell out so fast? There seems to be a misunderstanding of just how diverse the LOST community is. Just a thought. :)

JT said...

We know you meant young nerdy dudes-not naked guys!

tim armstrong said...

i dont know about you but i do all of my prime time tv watching nude.

BarbaraJay said...

Ready for a reveal tomorrow. After that, I'm hoping for a Baltimore-Washington area event, now that I know that John-Paul and Ellen are Marylanders, too. I showed up for Apollo bars and I'd show up for a poster url.

PS-I'm a nerdy middle-aged woman who loves LOST.

MeSoCrazy said...

Not trying to stir up anything, but all I care about is the triangle from hell. Everything else is just silly.

Amy Lynn said...

@MeSoCrazy... do you mean Claire/Charlie/Jacob?

tim armstrong said...

i think we're talking about the hurley, ranch dressing, and peanut butter love triangle.

ObFuSc8 said...

I guess TYSON's waiting for Zort's bedtime again?

Attorney Greg said...

is it 11:13 yet?

Capcom said...

LOLLLLLLLLL, oh my, you guys kill me. Nerdy nudes, triangle from hell, etc.!

You didn't sound at all chauvenistic or anything like that Tim, no offense taken. Except for the friends here on the Lost blog, I don't get to watch the show with anyone so I have no idea what the total demographic sweep of the show is. And for a while ABC was calling it a favorite family show...before The Love Triangle happened, that is. :-o

OK Zort, I'll email you about the blog thing, tx.

Glad to see you checking in Sayidsgirl!

Sayid'sgirl said...

mesocrazy
Of course I'll except your fist bump or your cyber hug.

I'm glad LOST offers you something you like. I personally could care less about the triangle though.

I love the mystery of it along with the sci-fi. I love trying to figure out what is going on.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hi Capcom!!

Capcom said...

You know, by the middle-to-end of the first season, Lost seemed very dark and mysterious to me and that really hooked me to looking forward to S2. The Jack/Kate/Sawyer sandwich feels cheezy to me and I could really do without it, but maybe I'll see the reason for it by the end. Once the SciFi elelment began (even though TPTB denied it at first) and the Dharma substory came creeping in, there was no turning back for me. The huge number of new elements (by S3) and the lack of explanations thereof, really confused me, but I had to hang on to see what it all meant. And, to keep in touch with all my new online Lost friends for sure. :-)

Capcom said...

Oh, and the music definitely hooked me in S1 as well.

MeSoCrazy said...

While I admit to loving Jack, the triangle lost me in when season 3 pooped on me. (Sometimes I fall prey to it here and there but I try to pretend it is dead to me, because it is the weakest link). As a Battlestar Galactica hard core junkie and former X-File fanatic, Sci Fi is my favorite kind of show. You add Matthew Fox I was sold before I saw the pilot. And I consider myself both a geek and a hot princess. (Just trying to add another 'type' to the mix).

Ginger said...

Hey you all everybody! Wow, I just read thru like 3 days of posts I think. I had a little/huge kitchen fire. Slightly displaced, dealing w/insurance adjusters, & lots of smoke damage:( Thanking God a lot for baby fences & family all being safe.

No more real life drama. Back to ARG! So are we thinking Friday for reveal?

Sayid'sgirl said...

I know I'm one of the very few, but I love the time travel. I find it fascinating.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Ginger
Glad everyone is ok. Hope the insurance will take care of it.

HenryGaleWasHere said...

I'll admit it, it almost lost me during season 3 when it was kinda just drifting around aimlessly for awhile, but with the dharma and mythology later on, it rewarded me for sticking around.

Ginger said...

Thanks Sayid'sgirl. The adjusters were great. They took about 6 hours going over our house! 4 hours yesterday & a couple of more this morning. Crazy!
I wish I had a time machine or frozen donkey wheel to turn so I could go back & turn the burner off under the cooking oil!

Capcom said...

Glad that you're OK Ginger! Wow, Thanksgiving is going to be really special for your family this year. Even though you may have to eat out. :-o

LotteryTicket said...

MEL, loud and clear. wheels up. midnight central.

Yes Capcom. Luckily, we already had a family member invite us to their house for Thanksgiving dinner:)

Scoutpost said...

@Justin- hey I got the tote bag the other day...thanks!!

Capcom said...

Whew. :-)

Hey everyone, Jorge posted on his blog that Lost got a few People's Choice noms, so you can vote here: Vote for Lost

JT said...

Glad you're OK Ginger. Scary.

mungonna said...

LT. A wonderful time it was with you. I am so glad that we figured it all out. If it wasn't for that cockroach interrupting the discussion, we may have never realized what we were saying. Strange how things worked out...but we got it!
MEL

JT said...

I wish someone would do a female We Like LOST you tube video.

maven said...

Glad to hear all is well, Ginger! but it must have been pretty scary while it was happening!

LT and MEL: Did you guys finally get together? I want picture proof! LOL

Zort70 said...

Right it's clue time, I'm going now.

Martyn said...

Good Lord, what a terrible week at work I'm having. Luckily, saw an amazing gig last night (Muse for those that are interested) and have two days off, which is perfect for poster reveal day.

I've given up on the red ?, no point hoping to fill that gap when the chances of me getting one are super slim. I was uber pleased to get Jacobs cabin last Friday, considering it took a minute to get to the checkout page.

I love the Swan for so many reasons. For me, it depicts the season two finale, showing chaos, the pissed off swan, the red and black and the hieroglyphs. Also, I love rob jones purely because ofthe White stripes so it was a perfec poster for me. Alas, that was the day we all realised the poster buddy system wasn't going to hack it anymore.

I'm still trying to buy this one for a reasonable price, even LostInLondon gave me some helpful hints on to get one.

I know I'm English and have absolutely no idea what Thanksgiving is about, (bit like most Americans not getting November 5th probably) but i've watched enough tv to know the procedure.

So, I am thankful for lostARGs and every single one of it's members, even the ones who argue sometimes (not the anon from the start of the week though), for keeping me entertained since August.

Amy Lynn... Lovethe flashforward gag, only figured it out at the I was loaded sentence.

Ginger... Glad all is safe and well.

John-Paul... You lucky #%$*~^!

That's me done, prob won't pop up again until Friday but I do tend to lie a lot.

maven said...

@Zort: Oh good! Final clue should be here momentarily! LOL

mungonna said...

Mave..LT posted a pic/ link of us two,,back in the Ny Playa clue blog.

feel_the_insanity said...

I have to disagree with everyone who's hating on Season 3, it's actually my favorite season (tied with S1). We had Desmond finally becoming a regular, the emergence of Juliet and Ben, Locke "finding his way", Jacob's Cabin, Charlie's Sacrifice...ok, so it started off rough. And no one likes Stranger in a Strange Land, but the season overall was great.

maven said...

Thanks, MEL...must have gone to sleep before that was posted! At least your feet got along well! LOL

Dan said...

Hi Ginger - glad to hear everything is for the most part ok!

Attorney Greg said...

@Martyn - What is a reasonable price? Just curious, not trying to get your hopes up.

mungonna said...

..Imagine a pebble thrown in a still pond. the ripples expand out. Same ripples,,just further expanding,,further..and further. That is what the seasons of LOST have been to me. There is no way ..one season is better than the other. If you got it from the start..over the seasons, its been like watching a sphere..expand out in ALL directions..further and further.

Jesse t said...

@feel_the_insanity- I agree.

Eugene said...

MEL and LT,
It is a great picture. Nothing depicts a person's inner "sole" like the shoes they choose.

maven said...

Dumb question: Does anyone know how to access the tutoring sessions at LU? The first one was supposed to be today. Are they at a certain time?

Amy Lynn said...

maven, it went up early this morning. Go to the tutoring center, and then hit "Session 1" on the left toolbar

Eugene said...

You have to login as well

MeSoCrazy said...

My dislike of season 3 is only the first part where cage stuff happened and yes I admit even as a Jack fan, the horrible episode of that randomness that was whatever that was. Getting Juliet? Totally worth it. (Though I still wish I could erase that cage business. Just from my mind. You all are free to keep it. But I would like to not have it floating around in this big nerdy hot princess head of mine).

Seriously though it is more than time we get a update. I'm demanding it.

mungonna said...

Eu..yes our feet got along very well. More than once we had to stop talking about LOST and untie them. But my left foot beat her right foot to the oockroach.

maven said...

Thanks, Amy Lynn and Eugene! I was logged in and I was clicking everywhere but where I was supposed to! Cute tutoring video, but that's about it!

Sandman90 said...

Long day at work. Crap. I need a poster buddy - my wife is lecturing around probable reveal time. Enjoyed the pics of the feet today - reminded me of the Others...

kiwilostie said...

Didnt they go over budget in S3, so did a few 'cheap' episodes, ie stuck in the cages. That dragged a bit, but I still liked the season overall. Over 20 eps - has to be good!

@Martyn. You lucky sod! Muse. Hope to catch them Jan '10 at the BDO. They always put on a great live show, often voted the best. Saw them last in '03 I think it was, again at the BDO. Did they play heaps off the new album, or spread it round?

Scoutpost said...

just checking in....

I forgot about the tutoring session. Maybe I'll check that out after the kids get to bed.

Martyn said...

BTW, UK people, just realised you don't have to buy the Lost Blu-Ray from HMV to get access to Lost University. You can get it cheaper elsewhere, can't remember where though. But Lost University is on Disc 5 with the finale episode so unless you want the bonus disc (which is a DVD, major let down), buy from someone more reliable than HMV.

Justin said...

@scoutpost - Glad to hear it! hope you enjoy it :) Do you happen to know if Lottery Ticket got hers yet?

Martyn said...

@Kiwilostie...

Surprisingly a lot off of their newer album. My girlfriend said she was glad she gave it a listen before yesterday otherwise she would of been lost.

Played all the big hits, not butterflies and hurricanes which i'm livid about but will forgive. Definitely the best live band i've seen, truly amazing performance.

Hope you do see them in January, well worth the expensive ticket, you really do see where your money went with these guys, unlike some other bands that charge £30 and then just stand there looking like they'd rather be watching TV with no special effects or anything.

I'm looking at you Arctic Monkeys!!!

Sorry, a lil OT but go see them Kiwi, you will 100% not regret it!

Congested said...

Not sure if I'm already following you Amy. What's your twitter name? Also follow poster13reveal for reveal tweets tomorrow.

Amy Lynn said...

@Congested - room317. But don't scare me, we don't even know what DAY the reveal is yet!

JT said...

Did you decide to go to reveal rather than go over later Congested?

tim armstrong said...

new clue

Anonymous said...

new clue...are they giving away a laptop or something?

AndySchex said...

"Look closely..."

Amy Lynn said...

Tomorrow night, 6-8pm! WOOT!

Sayid'sgirl said...

hmmm look closely??

tim armstrong said...

amy can i be a real fan now?

i can has your approval?

Attorney Greg said...

Clue

Ginger said...

Are we supposed to be looking closely @ the clue I guess?

Amy Lynn said...

tim is my hero!

MeSoCrazy said...

Oh so much better of a time. I'm calling my brother to plead with him to go. He's so close. And I'm so far. And his my brother.

Look closely. I'm looking. And I'm finding the images of the players rather fun looking. Is that guy playing a sport with his lap top? That's my kind of sport.

kiwilostie said...

Damn - thought I got it first for once!

PessimisticLines said...

New clue - there's 12 of them like on a clock, is that what we're looking at? What's significant about the 6, 7 and 8 guys?

Attorney Greg said...

See I said it would be at 9:33. LOL.

Jesse t said...

could the reveal possibly be at 2:00? (the guy holding the laptop) the image looks like a clock and there are 12 people there. hmm..

reAnimated said...

look closely?

Amy Lynn said...

@Pessimistic, the clue says

Thursday November 12,
6-8 pm!

Justin said...

hmmm the guy at 3 o clock has a laptop...

Justin said...

oops...meant 2 o clock!

JT said...

Maybe they'll be some kind of internet feed we can watch?

kiwilostie said...

Look closely - might be a US thing, but do you recognise any of the playas?

Anonymous said...

justin, that's two o clock. bet they sell at 2.

Attorney Greg said...

Have any of the other reveal times been a range?

Look close - is that because it's written really tiny on ping pong balls?

PessimisticLines said...

@Amy, I know, it just seems like there's more to it than that. What, are we supposed to sit refreshing for 2 hours? I don't think I could take that!

MeSoCrazy said...

Aren't they all just playing ping pong (well kind of one's biting his). 3:00's is just on his lap top. Which really you don't want to hit a ball with that. Especially if it's a mac. IMO.

kiwilostie said...

Looks like Micheal holding the lappy

RobPerrin said...

Maybe they've got a ping pong MMORPG set up. We'll play each other, winners get the posters!

The Bench Coach said...

where did you guys see a new clue? I am so lost...

i dont recognize any of them.

Anonymous said...

MeSoCrazy said...

I mean 2:00. I can't tell time unless it's digital. And I'm really tired. That's my excuse. I can't look any closer. My eyes won't let me.

tim armstrong said...

i think it has to do with the paddle on the laptop.
