Poster 16 Clue Hunt ? 525

So do we have the beginnings of a Scavenger hunt, or at least extra clues for the 16th poster being on sale.

From Dennis -

They handed out bookmarks, gelaskinz, totebags, and Shit-Zu tshirts. One tote bag had the day of the reveal (Wed PM PT) and the bookmarks all contained numbers. the bookmarks add up to the time of the reveal- 1752 (17:52 or 5:52PM PT Tomorrow)

-296
561
556
-200
896
235
361
-361
300
-300

Update - there may be a bookmark that was missed off the original list -600, which would make it 11:52.

ChrisL said...

and 2nd?

Amy Lynn said...

I have no idea what's going on.

Michael said...

what is this madness?

Zort70 said...

Reverend Milo is broadcasting live again

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

WED
PM P.T.
1752 => 5.52PM Pacific Time, Wed

Close previous post, so we can stay in one.

melbrs said...

"Wed PM I.T."??? Is that what that says? Island time?

JPL said...

Hmmm... I think we're wicked LOST.

Martyn said...

where have this bookmarks come from and what is WED PM written in?

Just update the hub Tyson with the reveal time so I can go to bed!!!

ChrisL said...

So it looks like 5.52 Pacific time Wed evening. Anyone?

melbrs said...

Or is that P.T.? hmm... I hope it's I.T. but i'm sure it'll be pacific. Again: boo!

Zort70 said...

Until the poster is revealed, or until tomorrow morning at least, I'll leave this post the only one with comments.

ChrisL said...

Yes, where did the bookmarks and bag come from?

Capcom said...

From previous thread:

Thanks so much to everyone who is sharing pics, etc., and to Thorsten, ChrisL, Comix, and all who made the poster and visuals a success. I feel like I'm on the moon watching things happen on earth, but at least we get to see it happen thanks to everyone sharing! :o)

BTW, Thorsten, is your photography book published in English also? Tx.

JPL said...

How can they show all 16 "sold out" posters without the 16th actually selling out? It has to be tonight.

Martyn said...

Oh it's a bag? Ugh, are we just really part of an experiment, to see how long we can stay awake for a poster?

ChrisL said...

JPL, good point.

Nachosaur said...

They're playing with us. Like when they said that there would be no time travel.

Watch out!

Capcom said...

LOL

Zort70 said...

I just uploaded a better picture of the bag that Maven got with the reveal info. (Wed PM)

Amy Lynn said...

HI ZORT!!!!!

AndySchex said...

@JPL, if the exhibit runs until the 24th, then after tomorrow, all 16 sold out poster would be viewable.

melbrs said...

P.T. boo

Zort70 said...

I love all the lovely people in the queue.

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

WED, PM, Pacific Time, sum them => 1752.

Isn't it strange to write PM if there is already said 17.52?

Michael said...

So are we certain the reveal is tomorrow at 17:52? cause I CANT miss this one

Nachosaur said...

5+5+2=12

???

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

And, what about

Panda's are rad. So are polar bears

?

Nachosaur said...

1+7+5+2=15


OH!!!

Amy Lynn said...

Zort, remind me to try and get Emerson to say HI ZORT into the camera.

Capcom said...

Did I read correctly in the last thread that our fan poster got video'd by the S6 DVD dude?

And did our poster get given to anyone?

JPL said...

Thought they were going to have us wait 108 minutes. :)

I don't which is/was worse... waiting for new clues or the "On Sale Soon" icon.

Martyn said...

I'm not going to bed until the time is on the HUB!

Zort70 said...

Capcom, Maven showed it to Darlton, Damon even held it for a few minutes.

Capcom said...

Soooo, tomorrow, at 5:52 PST? Is that what Maven figured?

Capcom said...

Tx Zort, neat.

Nachosaur said...

OR, it was done wrong.

DUH DUH DUH

Eugene said...

I'm annie. I replied to the Johnny CC tweet. It's too odd to be a coincidence, isn't it?

JPL said...

Who do we believe...

Jensen @ Gallery 1988 Blog

All I can do is just tell you that the sold out 16 posters you see on DamonCarltonAndAPolarBear.com will all be displayed in one room for the first time (and yes, I know you only see 15 on the website).

Lisa said...

well, at least I will be home at that time Yeah !!! I was panicking since my son has a concert tomorrow night but with it being PST and me living in the east, I shouldn't miss it !! Yeha !!

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

15 will be lost => url is the last clue.

16th will be found: we know the url but not the timing, and the clues are given personally to our friend in queue. :)

Zort70 said...

The live stream is back on.

Lisa said...

nope @Nachosaur I added it up again (from the photos ) and they got the right amount added up. lol

Nachosaur said...

@Lisa

PHEW.

Zort70 said...

A bookmark was missing -600 which makes - 11:52

pecca said...

Some of Johnny Cupcakes more famous designs feature a Panda eating a cupcake. Maybe that post is just his way of saying to his fans "I'm at this lost thing, and it's crazy here."

Not a clue.

Sayid'sgirl said...

another bookmark that adds up to 11.52.

Orchid7 said...

I'm so confused. If the reveal is tomorrow at 5:52pm PT that makes it a work day for me and I'm with the Boss, so no chance of getting this one :(

Are we sure about the time??

Nachosaur said...

1+1+5+2=9


???

mrtibbs said...

Rev just found out that there is another bookmark -600

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

11.52.... PM?
Does not sound right..

Nachosaur said...

Darn, I'm missing it.


YEARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nachosaur said...

Yeah, middle of the nighter.

Whoo.

Martyn said...

must be another bookmark missing then, surely?

Nachosaur said...

Curse these bookmarks. May they never get LOST again.

andalone said...

cjones416 from L4L just tweeted that Justin Chatwin aka Eddie Colburn from "Further Instructions" just walked by the line and no one noticed. LOL

reAnimated said...

Nice vid Rev. Great stuff.

Nachosaur said...

Maybe if he was a bigger star...

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

kiwilostie said...

If its 24 hr clock, that would make it 1152AM, not PM.

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

GOKU WAS THERE? ;D

Number one. :D

BTW, Ob, you're gorgeous :D

Nicole said...

So does anyone know what time the print reveal will be at?

kiwilostie said...

Andalone. if he aint in LOST, keep walkin! Ha!

Martyn said...

Maybe he shouldn't of ruined Dragonball then!

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

Guys, BE CAREFUL with the bookmark, please. :D

melbrs said...

Hmmm........ 11:52. Are we SURE these bookmarks are leading us to the time? Maybe it's a clue to something else (wishful thinking, I know - at least i might have a shot now that it's not 5:52 pm pacific)

JPL said...

@Nicole - I think we have a better chance of picking the winning numbers in tonight's lottery than we do picking a time for reveal. :)

Martyn said...

Oh the waiting!

Nachosaur said...

Maybe it's a clue for the NEXT clue...

Lisa said...

and then they found another number Nachosaur lol so now it looks to be a different time

Ellen said...

email...!
xxoo

Martyn said...

@JPL...

LOL

Surely if it was going to be an obscure time to release it, it'd be 8:15pm or 3:16pm or even 1:08pm?

Nicole said...

Haha JPL, very true!

I hope it is 11.52am, that's 7.52pm here! :) I won't be buying the print because I don't have any money at the minute but I can't wait to see what it is.

mrtibbs said...

Thanks to everyone there at G88. It was great to see every one via revs feed. Especially the poster! Enjoy the show everyone there. Nighty night

reAnimated said...

More broadcast from Rev.

http://www.ustream.tv/channel/reverendmilo

Zort70 said...

Heckling traffic

maven said...

I see you got the new time. Hope we didn't miss a bookmark.

Nachosaur said...

I hope so too.

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

If there are 300 poster available, i think it will be a WAR.

A day for everyone to prepare fingers, ctlc-c/v...


404, i fear. :(

Martyn said...

This is all so confusing, my brain hurts and i'm tired.

JPL said...

Hmmm... 8:15 EST in about a half hour. That would be nice.

After that last hour & a half, my F5 key is definitely worn out. Wonder if DCAAPB will pay to have it replaced or if they just want to send a statues and call it even. I need a good laywer... where's our trusted Trial Attorney when you need him most?

Lisa said...

me too Martyn, me too

Martyn said...

@kiwilostie

When I said NME has lost it's credibility, well, Simon Cowell is the front cover star for their xmas issue. I think that says it all!

Nachosaur said...

Ah, we have a time at least.

Orchid7 said...

So is it 11:52 pm or am??

Martyn said...

back on air! I think :s

Eugene said...

@Martyn,
it does say it all indeed.

Martyn said...

or not

Nachosaur said...

As for I, I waddle in the mud, confused.

Eugene said...

I can't believe this all started to happen the instant I left work for the commute home. Has anyone heard anything less cryptic from Lottery Ticket?

Martyn said...

It was on air but then it switched back, sorry folks.

@Eugene, this quote in the comments on their site cracked me up. It is heavily edited though!

.....i hate this smug fudger more everyday, i've never watched X-Craptor but had to take a peak at this Miley Cirus cover on Youtube......fudge me, just when i thought things couldn't get any worse for the music industry then this happens....i'm praying RATM get to number 1....

roxanna said...

just got home...
uhm, good clue solving :)

kiwilostie said...

Martyn, lmao - youre shi**ing me right?

Martyn said...

@kiwilostie...

I sh*t you not!

Zort70 said...

I've just added a picture of Lotto to the As They Arrive post.

Martyn said...

ok, now it's on air

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

tomorrow i'll start reading from here.
I hope it will be a great time.
I'm going to bed: 2 o'clock now.
So, if the time is 11.52PM Pacific Time (23.52 in 24h) it will be 8.52AM in Italy, 7.52AM in UK.

See you in 1 days and 7 hours :D :D

MeSoCrazy said...

So we know 52 minutes into some hour of the day tomorrow is when this poster will be revealed. Or 8 minutes before the hour. Okay. Great. Not even a teensy bit confused.

kiwilostie said...

Oh Martyn, now why did you have to link it - I couldnt help myself! Bollocks to that! I see now what you meant about NME.

Nachosaur said...

Well, my comments shall come to an end. Do not cry for me, LOSTIES. I shall be back again.

The poster's definetly LAX.

Eugene said...

HA! Cowell looks like he's trying to look like Adam Lambert. You really have to dig hard for good music these days. At least raound here the music scene has really deteriorated in the last 15 years. Even the alt station is playing stuff the is now nearly 20 years old.

Synchromystic Librarian said...

when do y'all go inside?

Martyn said...

Sorry kiwilostie, but his punchable face had to be shown!

Martyn said...

anyone not watching video, go now, big group waaaaaaaalllllltttttt coming up!

Martyn said...

I just noticed on the website in the top left corner, you can see the slighest blue line. It looks like they just put a black cover over it. TBH, looks like it's the Ben Linus print underneath it but still, something interesting to make the time fly quicker

roxanna said...

chat isn't working for me in ustream so can one of you please let Rev know I say hi, too!!

:) :) :)
Happy smiles all around!

Nachosaur said...

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!

Eugene said...

The video is way fun. I can rarely get into the chat but love watching this.

Eugene said...

Was I comment 108? For some silly reason that pleases me to no end tongiht.

Martyn said...

just makes me want to be there

Just Thinking said...

So glad that waiting at G88 is all that we hoped.

Eugene said...

Nice that it's not a let down. That's a real credit to all who put this together. I believe they are just as geeky as we are deep down. So satisfying even if I can't be there.

Martyn said...

@Eugene, the thought that Darlton have looked at a photo at me is is pretty awesome in itself!

Capcom said...

Hey Synch!!!!! I'm not sure of the time for anything at this point. Is it 7pmPST, folks?

oruga_xxx said...

I guess they've abused this time with the clues.

Are we going to discover the true release?

xDDDDDDDD

I don't see it clear...

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

we have them all.

1152.
WED
PM
P.T.

=> Wednesday, 11.52PM PST.

Martyn said...

@Imannie...

The fact you're are still awake like me shows that you need to hear it from the horses mouth first before going to sleep! And you're an hour ahead of me!

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

Yes, i know, i need to read this on the HUB.
My eyes are closing, but still i have to resist. :D

Martyn said...

Too true! Just need something to happen or my head is going to hit the keyboard.

Hard.

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

nothing will happen, i think.
we will go to bed with our own convinction, right or wrong.
i hope i'm not wrong.

Martyn said...

I wish they'd update the HUB with the time so I can go to sleep, work tomorrow will not be fun!

oruga_xxx said...

oruga_xxx said...

I hope you're wrong about the fact of going to bed with just a conviction xD

Eugene said...

They shoud start to go inside in about 90 minutes. I think plenty will happen but that the poster will not go to buy now until tomorrow so if you sleep now you may not miss that much. I am on east coast in US so will follow for quite a hwile longer.

ImAnnie/Davide/Italy said...

well, i'm getting asleep on the keyboard.. my English is becoming slow and difficult.. so i think i will retire :(

Martyn said...

I will go to bed when the time is confirmed but knowing me, i'll wait until I can actually see what i'm going to buy. This is what this ARG has turned me into.

Martyn said...

goodnight Imannie, you fought bravely!

Lisa said...

sweet dreams of Swag floating in the ocean :-)

Eugene said...

Damon tweeter "Gallery 88!!!!!" so I think he may be on his way.

LostiePat said...

Rev is doing a great job with the video

@thorsten - the video shows Carlton signing a poster for you - the one you created - very cool!

thorsten said...

haha, yeah, Pat. Milo became even more legendary today ;))

Eugene said...

Lotto tweeted that she has a "list" but the link does not work for me. Anyone know what that is about?

dylansdad said...

I can't wait to see some pictures of all the cool stuff inside. I'm only about two hours away, but my son was getting a medal in his karate class tonight, so I cancelled my art show plans and I will now be experiencing it through this site along with so many others.

roxanna said...

LT's picture works if you take off the period at the end of the link :)

thorsten said...

This is her List, Eugene…

@Lottery_Ticket/lostarg-gallery-1988

Capcom said...

Your poster is legendary tonight as well, Thorsten. :-)

Danny Cohen said...

what's the line looking like right now? I'm thinking of heading over.

andalone said...

This picture speaks for itself!

http://twitgoo.com/9ztef

andalone said...

How awesome is it that he is with Daniel Danger AND Kevin Tong?!!!!

Eugene said...

On the list but clicking on her link didn't work. I'l try Roxanna's suggestion

JPL said...

Quick thought... it is now 12/16 in Australia.

ColdSoreSuperstar said...

IM DANIEL DANGERS ANGRY YOUNGER BROTHER!!!!!!

feel_the_insanity said...

Whoa! Danger and Tong! My favorite artists!

feel_the_insanity said...

Why are you angry?

kiwilostie said...

JPL, yes, infact its 3/4 done already!

andalone said...

Justin is rubbing elbows with the poster gods!

ColdSoreSuperstar said...

because i am.

roxanna said...

lol I love Rev's personality in these videos

Amy Lynn said...

Rev is the new Jeff Probst!

ColdSoreSuperstar said...

One time I gave Kevin Tong a bottle of water.

True story.

Zort70 said...

ColdSoreSuperstar - Please be courteous.

feel_the_insanity said...

You seem like the kind of guy that would hand out water bottles.

ColdSoreSuperstar said...

(i will, no rudeness tonight - won't spoil y'all's special evening. i'm just special in a different way)

ColdSoreSuperstar said...

hey! how'd you know I like giving out water?

ColdSoreSuperstar said...

I don't think you guys like me very much. :(

Martyn said...

Wow, the two artists who made my two favourite posters.

And DD is now my favourite artist. Man I wish I went!

How you holding up Zort? Eyes drooping yet?

Zort70 said...

ColdSoreSuperstar - given your previous record here do you blame us.

Please stick around for the fun if you want.

roxanna said...

my eyes are drooping and it's only 8 pm :(

Zort70 said...

Martyn, I had an hour's sleep, what more do I need.

I have just been taking down a curtain pole (yes at 2am) ready for some new windows to be fitted tomorrow.

Capcom said...

We like everyone Cold, we just like to make sure that the play is polite in the sandbox. :-)

ColdSoreSuperstar said...

thanks!

ColdSoreSuperstar said...

but seriously, mel is batshit insane, right?

Capcom said...

Now, now, let's keep it polite, no personal stuff. Zort's too tired to play playground police. :o)

feel_the_insanity said...

It is hard to follow along with Mel sometimes...

ColdSoreSuperstar said...

okay, I'm done. have fun everyone!

Zort70 said...

MEL does have his own unique style ;-)

Zort70 said...

Bye ColdSoreSuperstar

feel_the_insanity said...

I can't wait for the pictures to come piling in of the inside of the Gallery. I'm so excited, I'm completely given up on my homework.

Martyn said...

LMAO

Zort, you're doing better than I am, head is in a half mast position

ColdSoreSuperstar said...

not leaving, just "settling down"

Congested said...

Is there anything more official than handwritten cards with #s and a bag with a handwritten "WED PM PT" on it indicating the poster is being sold online tomorrow?

Martyn said...

yeah, it being posted on the HUB. It's my only excuse for staying awake and i'm in a stay awake contest with lisa so until it's on the hub, for me, it's not official!

ColdSoreSuperstar said...

I thought that was as official as it got for this sorta thing...?

reAnimated said...

I wish there were. I have still be F5ing the hell out of the site.

Probably silly of me :(

Congested said...

...I know I'm complaining a bit here. But the poster should go on sale tonight imo.

Maybe the GoMerch staff who handle the site are all at the gallery opening?

Zort70 said...

Nothing is set in stone yet, we are not even sure the numbers are actually a time, just a big old assumption.

Lisa said...

sleep Martyn, sleeeeppppp lol

Capcom said...

That's a good guess Congested. Lucky them, they get to take off of work to go to the show. :o)

Katie said...

Something is up with those bookmarks. There aren't many of them but the hand writing is different on some of them. Why would they have had different people write the numbers on them if there are so few?

Congested said...

Yeah... I'm of the same mentality. Seems kind of lame of them to scratch together a couple clues with a pen after all the other stuff they did.

If it does go on sale tomorrow, I'm guessing that's why... that the GM staff is at the party and won't be around to hit the switch and go through the orders, etc.

Eugene said...

Just saw a Happy Holidays message on ABC with Hurley smack dab in the middle.

Dennis said...

Congested, when they handed out the bookmarks and tote bags, the guy handing them out said the time was on the bookmarks, and we would have to work together to find out what it was - and the day was inside one of the bags - the bag that Maven got!

JPL said...

1/2 hour to go... it's been quite the ride folks.

Wonder if they'll be updating the Hub at DCAAPB with photos of exhibit.

Martyn said...

reanimated...

just use check4change and give your F5 finger a bit of a break

Attorney Greg said...

I'm late to the party (just got off work) - need to catch up on the comments. Pics and prizes look awesome!

Dennis said...

I'm guessing they were going to just write it on one, like they did with the bags, then maybe they thought they would make it more complicated to give us something to do???

Zort70 said...

Ah ha, Greg Nations on the live feed.

Sandman90 said...

Thanks to all of you at the site. Rev - I'm impressed with the video - thanks for being there live for us. Really quite impressed.

reAnimated said...

@Martyn, I tried that for a bit, but I could never really get it working well. Plus, too addicted to Chrome to go back to ffox. :p

Congested said...

Ah thanks Dennis.

Dennis said...

Gregg Nations just stopped by...

Martyn said...

lol, fair enough, i use safari on my mac and firefox on my pc so just use my pc for telling me when the poster is ready to buy. refreshes every 15 seconds

Zort70 said...

Just added a picture of Gregg Nations and Dennis on the pictures post.

roxanna said...

it's almost time! I'm getting a headache from lack of sleep :(

justanothersky said...

Finally catch up with most of the updates & comments.
Thanks for all the tweet, photos & video feeds! Looking forward for more later.

Zort70 said...

Too many sites to refresh and read ;-)

Orchid7 said...

I'm so excited. Do you think the
16th print will stand out as such or could it be possible it will be amongst all the new Artwork and we've got to work out which one it is?

reAnimated said...

lack of sleep? Roxanna, its 8:45. :p

roxanna said...

@orchid7
I was wondering the same thing. Can't wait to see it! :)

Ophendor said...

This thing is going to be a big poster. Very nice, it's a standard sized frame, but 24x36 is a big poster. Hope I can find some wall space.
