First?

Martyn said...

@Comixguru... lol, then I don't feel bad then.

Gotta be before it, can't take these 7 days between reveals, gotta get my next fix. If I had my way, we'd have a reveal RIGHT NOW!

Sorry, losing the plot a little bit.

lostsailors said...

Even though I've complained about having those reveals during work time, my computer has had a decidedly rapid decline in life, so it's better if I can be on this computer to watch things unfold!

hey lotto on your spoilertv dcaapb list your name is listed in the barracks part twice did u manage to get a poster? lol

ChrisL said...

It would be great to have a longer series of really difficult clues leading to an after Thanksgiving reveal

Sam G said...

This week is very busy for lots of people and it would be sad if they couldn't be a part of it.

email...:)
xxoo

Amy Lynn said...

To the tune of “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music

Skate decks in Boston and cupcakes on Tuesday
Every reveal is a ‘hope it’s good news day”
Beautiful murals that loudly proclaim
Please let my fingers be fast for this frame

Comics and ping pong, a tote bag that’s missing
Rappers and pet stores and much reminiscing
Someone’s on Twitter, it’s never the same
Please let my fingers be fast for this frame

Seven by seven and bookmarks with Sawyer
Tokyo’s a bust, but I won’t call my lawyer
Blowing off steam, cuz it’s only a game
Please let my fingers be fast for this frame

When it’s sold out
When refresh fails
When it’s 404
I simply remember there’s two frames to go
And then I am sad some more.

[Repeat all verses]

JPL said...

Slightly mixed feelings on this one.

As much as I'd like for #15 to be done and out of the way, I'd hope that DCAAPB would recognize that Thursday (in the States at least) is a day to give "Thanks" and allow family & friends time to spend it together. Also, no reason for their crew to have to go in on a holiday.

So with that said, give us a few clues to start the hunt and let's hope for a poster reveal this weekend.

ChrisL said...

Amy - fantastic! :-)

Just Thinking said...

Well, I was singing Zort's Pinky and the Brain- but now it's this Amy Lynn-all so true! Lol.

Patmc said...

If we didn't get a clue last night... then I'm guessing there's pretty much no way we're going to get a reveal before Thanksgiving.

Oh, and found out why I couldn't get through the checkout for the last reveal. After missing the poster, I went to drown my sorrows with some fast food, and discovered that my debit card was "unauthorized". I called my bank, and they told me that they had canceled the card, because a merchant that I had used, had a batch of credit card numbers stolen, and my card fell in that range. I asked why they hadn't called me, and she said I should have already received my new card. I told her, if I had received my card, I probably wouldn't be on the phone with her. Thanks B of A! Awesome customer service! (sarcasm)

I still haven't had the courage to look on Ebay. I may just have to settle for an incomplete collection... (sigh)

Lisa said...

second lol I hope they do it after Thanksgiving. Boy friend is having a small surgery tomorrow and were getting ready for it today. Then on Thursday we will do a small thanksgiving at home. We did the whole family one yesterday which reminds me of the National Lampoon's Thanksgiving Reunion. Smart assed kids, grouchy fathers and moms that point at you and say boy your getting fat. All those lovely things that make a Thanksgiving joyful ! lol Ahh, it's so good to be home !

comixguru said...

@Amy Lynn - love the song!!!! totally singing it. :)

RobPerrin said...

Amy Lynn....genius.

comixguru said...

and sorry to be off topic- but, i am looking forward to hearing last night's podcast. so sorry i wasn't able to participate. next time... :)

Patmc said...

@Amy Lynn - After having to spend the morning at the DMV... thank you for making me smile! :-)

Amy Lynn said...

Hey guys, Mr. Danger just sent the following out to his email list:

for those asking, and im still trying to get back to everyone whos emailed (you can probably imagine how many emails i recieved on this topic), my copies of the certain print about a certain television show about a certain island wont be available until the new year. no way around that, so please just keep your eye on my site.

Sam G said...

This is the e-mail I got:

hey folks!

so i know ive been neglecting my mailing list a little bit lately, a whole lot going on and not a whole lot of time to talk about it. i have however been keeping things moderately up to date on my website blog thing at tiny media empire. so worse case scenario, you can keep up with things over there.

tomorrow, Tuesday the 23rd, at around 1pm eastern time, im going to be putting a bunch of unsold prints up in the online store. as some of you might have noticed, i havent really put up anything new in a long time due to the sheer amount of work and projects ive been involved with, and currently have a rather comical backlog of art prints and gigposters (and printing bills ::pulls at collar nervously::) from the last 6 months or so. however, i have a pile of solid seasonal help with mailorder so were going to get all the standing mailorder out and everything new out well in time for the holidays.

the list as i see it...


“has thou slain the jabberwock?”
12×24″ 5 color screenprint, edition of 250


"i came to know an archer"
24x24 3 color screenprint with hand painted elements, editions TBD
B&W lineart & unpainted versions will be available as well...


the royal tenenbaums @ alamo drafthouse
12x24 5 color screenprint, edition of 150 green, 50 blue.


"please dont worry, when i wake up ill be something new" 6th edition, blue
12x30 6 color screenprint, edition of 200


plus perhaps a few other scattered things, we shall see what i pull out... in early december i will try to do another sale of the other gigposters and such; decemberists, andrew bird, mogwai, sonic youth, pinback, plus some others...

for those asking, and im still trying to get back to everyone whos emailed (you can probably imagine how many emails i recieved on this topic), my copies of the certain print about a certain television show about a certain island wont be available until the new year. no way around that, so please just keep your eye on my site.

ok, back to work! got a store to fill, about 600 prints to sign and number, and about half a million emails to respond to still. ooof.

xo

thorsten said...

…just in from Daniel Danger:

for those asking, and im still trying to get back to everyone whos emailed (you can probably imagine how many emails i recieved on this topic), my copies of the certain print about a certain television show about a certain island wont be available until the new year. no way around that, so please just keep your eye on my site.

thorsten said...

haha, okay.
Our Looking Glass seems to be in working order!

ChrisL said...

So the question is, how many has Daniel got to sell?

Martyn said...

Glad I refreshed before posting.

Think i'm going to try and buy either "please dont worry, when i wake up ill be something new" or "has thou slain the jabberwock?” He's such an amazing artist, don't know how i'm going to find room for it though.

Patmc said...

I think everyone here signed up for his list! hahahaha

thorsten said...

My guess would be something in the neighbourhood of 50, ChrisL…

Sam G said...

I also got this one.


daniel danger will continue the tradition of typo's in his updates. ON SALE DATE: TUESDAY THE 24th. ..not the 23rd

im stupid.

-d

thorsten said...

I like "i came to know an archer"

John-Paul said...

I'm so excited that they are gonna sell some more. I really need Locke's Secret.

On another note, here's to the hope that the red question mark is a link to another whole set of posters!

thorsten said...

Another whole set?
I don't think so.
Lost U will be next, and then the hiatus is over…

hobbit said...

As far as the reveal goes: How about one on Black Friday, that way some of the opportunists might be out being opportunists at stores instead?

Patmc said...

Black Friday is a bad idea. There will be very heavy Internet traffic that day, with lots of companies offering Black Friday deals. I think it would just make the already horrible check out process with GoMerch... that much worse.

ChrisL said...

So if he only has 50, his prices for other, less limited editions being $100 - $200, who wants to hazard a guess at the price...

Martyn said...

The problem I have with this reselling stuff is that the one poster I really want is the Swan Station and he's been promising to sell a lot of his posters for a long long time.

Chances of him actually selling that one and at the $50 price too, are slim!

Also, if anyone has the Crash, Hellcat on the spoiler tv trade list is looking to trade any two of the posters she has for it. Wish I had it so I could do the trade, sounds like a decent trade to me, smoke monster and walts kidnapping i'd go for. I'm babbling.

hobbit said...

I can't seem to get through the checkout process as it is, so I'm thinking a Black Friday reveal might somehow provide an opening...like in 28 Days Later when the guy releases the rage Zombie that the military guys have chained up...he doesn't have much of a chance of survival, but maybe the zombie wreaking havoc will somehow help him accomplish his goals ;)

Brendan said...

@ChrisL

I'm guessing you got that $100-$200number from the stuff in DDs store right now; just FYI the majority of his prints are in the $30-$40 range (or have been in the past).

I'd imagine his lost print will go for $50.

charter321 said...

I am going to hazard a guess and predict a Saturday reveal. I am sure GoMerch/RonnieMidfew will be closed on Thursday and probably Friday.

ImAnnie/Davide said...

I want smokey. :(
I was away that day.. that's KA. Sad Ka. :(

ImAnnie/Davide said...

Add: i'm with no reveal this week. There is still SOLD OUT BIG BANNER (SOBB) on every account.

ChrisL said...

Brendon, $50! I would be impressed.

Just Thinking said...

Will the prints that DD is putting up tomorrow go the same way that the Lost posters do? Or do they stay longer depending on price and whether they are new?

thorsten said...

I will check that out tomorrow, JT…
I need a replacement for my lost hatch!

Just Thinking said...

Hope it still turns up thorsten- I am looking up at mine on the wall and feeling bad for you. Maybe they will replace with those 5 or 10 kept back?

thorsten said...

Thanks JT! I am sure it will be okay, one way or another… maybe I should check out the tunisian desert…

maven said...

Hi, all! Back from my little cruise getaway...actually found a LOST fan on board (doesn't do anything on-line, tho), so that was fun! And I'm never going to eat again!

Sorry I missed the Talkshoe podcast. Trying to play catchup!

ChrisL said...

Welcome back Maven!

Ginger said...

lol thorsten. I hope Tyson makes it right some how.

Welcome back maven!

Get well soon Zort. I know how you feel:( Still trying to kick my cold.

Hope they don't do any reveals Thanksgiving weekend. Too much family stuff going on.

Sam G said...

Unless, the artists are able to sell some of the other 100 posters that weren't sold on-line. I don't know how they are going to sell anymore.

This has been stressed over and over:
"Once this limited edition print has sold out, they will never be printed again."

??????

Eugene said...

Somewhere I saw a comment from someone who knows Leia Bell that she has ALL of the first 100 prints. I have no idea if that is right or if she is the only one. It seems too high to me. But it does appear that Go Merch has not sold 200 of each one, more like 180 -190.

ReverendMilo said...

The gallery keeps 10...

Zort70 said...

Yes in previous comments we have discussed a possible breakdown of who has how many prints.

Around 40-50 was the best guess that went directly to the artists for whatever purposes.

They have no obligation to sell them, but in Mr Danger's case it looks like he will be doing so.

I have put the quote from the Tiny Media Empire site on the main blog.

Martyn said...

Just sent a fruitless e-mail to Rob Jones to see if he'll be selling any and if so, how many, but I don't expect a reply tbh.

OT, Eugene, just got a shipping confirmation from Gelaskins for the Hurley numbers. I don't know whether it was because I got it for an iPod classic instead of my iPhone or because the order was sent to the right person. Very weird though that they gave you the copyright spiel.

kiwilostie said...

Martyn, where did you get the Hurley image from for the gelaskin? Im trying to find it myself. Hi-res?

Sandman90 said...

I'm hoping we can skip this week and try again next week. As much as I've become addicted to this process (moreso the LOSTARGs interaction and hunting), it's probably a good thing to wean us while we have the holidays to distract us.

When this is over, I would love to see some of these prints in person. Maybe we could all coordinate a trip next year to Hawaii to share our prints with each other. Crazy? Maybe, but I've been looking for an excuse to go to Hawaii regardless and it would be great to spend some time with fellow LOSTARGers where it all began...

@MEL - Love the bookmark - Sincerest thanks for everything! Looking forward to an in depth WK review...

Martyn said...

@kiwilostie...

I just used the image for the laptop gelaskin on the HUB page. No idea how it's going to come out, could look crap or could look amazing. Will let you know when I recieve mine, no point more than one person wasting their money.

It looked good on the website so I'm keeping the faith.

Sandman90 said...

@martyn (or anyone who has a gelaskin) - Do the gelaskins have any protective value for an iPhone? Are they easily damaged and do the edges stay down if you're removing it from a holster or case frequently?
Thanks.

Martyn said...

@Sandman90...

As far as I'm aware, no, I don't think they do. I think they're just fancy art to customise your phone or mp3. I have a protective case for my iPhone so just got one for my iPod classic which stays in my jacket pocket at all time.

andalone said...

@kiwilostie @martyn I used the larger, sharper image of the original painting the artwork was derived from. I uploaded it to photobucket if you'd like to see it. link
Gelaskins cancelled my order, but I had one made on a different site. It arrived today. I'll update on how it turned out once I open the box and apply to iphone.

Martyn said...

Oh nuts! Didn't see that. Well, I hope the HUB image is good enough quality to look decent. Will have to wait two weeks to find out though.

Thanks andalone.

Capcom said...

Haha, I can relate to the Lampoon Thanksgiving too Lisa, one of my sisters unfortunately thinks that I have nothing better to do than to put hidden malicious double meanings in everything I say and do. And, I don't say "Hi" to her and her family properly either. Can't wait, I'm already getting a stomach ache from the anticipated stress. Sigh.

Welcome back Maven. :-)

andalone said...

Verdict on the iphone skin: wonderful! I am very pleased. I ordered through Uniqueskins.com.
Here is result: link

ReverendMilo said...

I will be driving an estimated 430 miles between Thursday and Sat. and never leaving the metroplex (DFW). Closing out saturday with Yo Gabba Gabba live (I am dragging the 2 1/2 with me, kicking and screaming of course, but I gotta see Brobee)

So I am not sure what I want to vote for...

Amy Lynn said...

@RevMilo... Yo Gabba Gabba? Is that like the Wiggles?

maven said...

Great news over at TLC about the promotion for S5 DVD/Blu-Rays! Getting well-deserved recognition.

Capcom said...

Does anyone have David our original TLC admin's email? We should tell him how his blog-brainchild has grown and gotten such recognition. :o)

maven said...

Capcom: Sorry, I don't have it. But it's a good idea though!

maven said...

David might be on FB...I think it's him...

comixguru said...

what is TLC?

comixguru said...

ohh... the Lost Community... got it.

maven said...

@Comixguru (and others wondering):
TLC is The Lost Community which is the original blog that lead to LostArgs (to just cover the off-season/hiatus ARGS). The Lost Community evolved from The Lost Experience Clues which was founded by David Penuel and formed a great community of LOST fans when the Lost Experience was going on after S1 (remember Rachel Blake trying to uncover what was going on with the Hanso Foundation?) I became involved in the LOST on-line community through the TLE Clues blog. Then it became the TLC blog to discuss the episodes since we all wanted to stay together. David kind of drifted away once he started having a family (and a life). Everything was taken over by Dennis who started to drift away to start his blog for Fringe. We've had some other Admins, and Zort has really stepped up to the plate and continues to make this a special place!

Hope that explains the history of how this came to be. Did I leave anything out "oldtimers"?

Sayid'sgirl said...

maven
Nope. That was a very good synopsis.
I was only a lurker at TLEC but imediately became a regular after TLE was over.
Can't wait to start discussing Season 6 over there.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Oh don't forget about David A. Dein and Steve the Goog Goglich (sorry Steve I know I spelled your last name wrong) Can you help me with that maven?

Anyway they do our weekly podcast on the episodes.

mungonna said...

Well this is interesting. I have only bought Season 1 DVD cuz I didn't think to tape what I was watching at first. But..I have taped every episode since, including recaps. So..every Season DVD release..i get in the same argument with folks. Why do i need DVDs for what I already got?..ooh oh all the extra stuff thats on the dvd!!...Extra Stuff?? seems to me the regular stuff needs figgerin out first! I mean.. everybody keeps going on and on about all the un answered questions of LOST.. why do you need a DVD of all the stuff thats unanswered? Thats like pouring salt in the wound!

Now..if they did a number like Canadian Broadcast did with the Prisoner..you know..kinda explain it abit ..show ya were the dots are and leave the connecting up to you..then theres a DVD worth gettin. Probably won't see anything like that until after its all over. And besides..these DVDs ain't serial numbered limited edition signed DVDs either. I think its best to hold off until they come out. Maybe some Canadian can do that for us,,whaddaya think?

JPL said...

So a question for you all (and Zort)... what becomes of LOSTARG's when the poster hunt is over?

Sayid'sgirl said...

JPL
I imagine zort will cover Lost University here after the poster hunt is over.

maven said...

Yes, sorry to forget to mention David A. Dein and Steve "the Goog" Googlish (sp?) They do the weekly episode podcasts. David just had twins...Desmond and Penelope!!! So I'm not sure if he'll be able to continue their excellent analysis with wild and crazy theories!

Also, Melissa_Lossa lead our Lost Book Club over the hiatus'...but it has kinda quieted down lately.

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

Makes perfect sense. And once season 6 starts... is TLC the place to "hang'?

Sayid'sgirl said...

Ah yes the new babies may slow him down. His birthday is tomorrow. So Happy Birthday David!!

Melissa has kind of taken over for Dennis lately.
I miss the book club with all this poster crazyness.

BTW zort has made a new post.

maven said...

JPL: I'm pretty sure LostArgs will not go away (for archival reasons). And if there is another ARG/Viral Marketing Campaign Lost-related (not very likely when the series is over...very tough to say that), LostArgs will be there. If stuff is happening with Lost University, I'm sure Zort will keep us updated here. Most of us "oldtimers" will head over to TLC to begin deep and meaningful discussions of LOST prior to, during and after each episode. There's quite a few regulars who have not participated in the poster thing, but they will return for S6!

Sayid'sgirl said...

JPL
Yep.

JPL said...

@maven & Sayid's Girl - Thanks for the update. Looks like there's a new place to call home & meet new friends.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Yep there are only about 6 including zort of the TLCers posting here. There's lot more over at TLC when season 6 starts up.

Sayid'sgirl said...

You're welcome JPL.

Hi all, while I was aslepp, Dennis has popped in and created a NEW POST

Brendan said...

@Maven

Was that Rachel Blake thing really after season 1? If so, time flies!

dylansdad said...

I will be out of town and will miss this week's reveal no matter what day they do it. Good luck to you all!
