First? Here we go - nice one Zort!

ObFuSc8 said...

Can we enter, for fun, but decline the prize?

Zort70 said...

If you enter but put No in the accept T&C's that would exclude you from winning.

ChrisL said...

Great layout Zort. What fun!

Zort70 said...

Dennis was the one that told me about the Google Docs forms, which will make the entry collation so much easier than accepting answers via email.

ChrisL said...

Is there anything the Mighty G****e don't have covered. Well spotted Dennis.

ObFuSc8 said...

Yay! Now, off to work!

Zort70 said...

The Sayid'sgirl question was the first one we received so it had to be asked first.

JPL said...

Way cool! Will need to do a bit of dvd watching to gather the answers.

@Zort - Will there be a new question every day?

Thanks Ramhatter, JustThinking and Sayid'sgirl for a great way to end 2009!

JPL said...

And... definitely will donate to Unicef! 1st time you've asked for us to do something for all the good you do for us! :)

thorsten said...

Cool form, Zort!
Is ist just my browser that displays the red * Erforderlich ?

which would be funny ;))

thorsten said...

Ah, found it. The whole Google content is displayed in german. (I use an english OS and browser, I just wondered. But Google pinpoined my location ;))

Zort70 said...

There are 10 prizes so I'm thinking of releasing a new one every couple of days after New Year is done with, so this finishes about a week before season 6 starts.

That way we will have some time to fit in any other stuff that comes our way before then.

So the next one will start on the 3rd of Jan. (No date guessing needed !)

Sam G said...

:) email

thorsten said...

Posters for Slaughterhouse 5, Moby Dick, Walden, Infinite Jest and The Road…

Amy Lynn said...

Hooray for Zort! Thanks!

Lisa said...

guess I forgot to comment but I'm here. Did you all see that Lost Charlie Gig Poster Art Print Larry Rhodes 2009 S/N is on ebay lol now your famous !!!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Good Morning All
Zort
Great plan to end this just before Season 6. It keeps us busy until then so we don't go crazy waiting for it to start.
Thanks for using my question.
You're welcome JPL.

ReverendMilo said...

Morning!

Entered!

Thanks Zort!

Zort70 said...

Just finished the questions for the next 7 prizes. They are locked and loaded.

Just Thinking said...

Hey-my question! Thank you Zort for the whole contest. So this is when I had better check-are the question providers entered in that draw?

Thanks Ramhatter too for spreading around more Lost fun.

Zort70 said...

Yes Question providers are added in automatically, unless they email the admins to take themselves out of a draw.

Doesn't stop you entering though, as none of the sets of questions are from one individual person.

Zort70 said...

I also need to ask JoeD wether you meant to choose 'Yes' on the agree to the terms and conditions ?

I'm not going to ask everyone that does this but as it's the first try I will.

charter321 said...

Can questions still be submitted?

Zort70 said...

I think I've got enough questions for the competition now, but send them in anyway just in case.

I might create a list of unused questions for when we have finished.

Just make sure it says 'Lost Trivia' in the email subject.

ReverendMilo said...

So, oh the horror, my first 12sec video...

MyLocke may be available soon

Any offers?

Zort70 said...

In around 20 years that could be worth a fortune.

thorsten said...

As we are celebrating across some timelines tonight, I already made a card for you all ;))

Joe D said...

Sorry Zort, I was going to explain I was just playing for fun in the comment area, but didn't. I don't want the prize listed, just the prize of entertainment and comradery that is flowing from your site! Thanks for keeping things interesting, those were great questions too

andalone said...

I think I will forget about getting any work done this morning and just enjoy my twitter feed. I am so very entertained.

Joe D said...

Miles, that print is now priceless!

Kelly said...

@ Thorsten - totally cool postcard - quite fitting!

@ Zort - thanks again for another great opportunity. I submitted and anxiously await the results!

Happy early new year everyone!!!!

Just Thinking said...

Thank you Thorsten- same to you. Poor Ben!

Zort- I appreciate the sweet way you remind me to remain industrious.

Rev- that is a wonderful way to involve the kids! Was thinking of you today- wanted to ask if you had gotten into the Davies course on LU, and if so had any advice for the rest of us?

Amy Lynn said...

JT, the Davies class is not for the first semester. Whether or not it will be second semester or after that, we don't know. But it's labeled 301. I don't know why anyone thought they could get into it early.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Nice card Thorsten. Happy New Year to you and all the ARGers.

Sandman90 said...

Rev - LOL!

Thorsten - Love the card

And a happy new year to you all.

maven said...

Happy New Year to all my LostArg Family...stay safe, happy and healthy!

Great way to end 2009 as we go into 2010! I'm not interested in winning anything and we already donated to UNICEF (wrote all our charity checks last night). I'll play along though, because that is the best part...being involved in this great group of people from all over the world (kiwilostie and other Aussies here are in 2010 already)!

@thorsten: Wonderful card! I think we've all felt like Ben in the Tunisian desert at some time!

@RevMilo: That poster is priceless now!

Thanks to Ramhatter, Sayid'sGirl and Just Thinking, and, of course, Zort70, for starting this off!

charter321 said...

New promo pic:

http://community.livejournal.com/ohnotheydidnt/42504415.html


excitement!

Amy Lynn said...

Warning: charter's link has a casting spoiler!!

thorsten said...

Right Maven, so I enacted it on a frozen beach ;))

Spy Hill Skates said...

@ Zort: This is great! The forms are a nice touch.

@ Thorsten: I really like the Slaughterhouse 5 poster.

thorsten said...

I thought so too, Spy Hill Skates!
;))

Just Thinking said...

Amy Lynn- The thing about the Davies course is that they have it listed in semester one in the course catalog. Then there are those people on the LU forum who say they got in.

Amy Lynn said...

@JT, those people are called liars ;)

futureself said...

Happy New Year Thorsten and everyone at Lost Args.

TW, is that you reenacting Ben in the Sahara?

thorsten said...

Same to you, futureself!
I laid down on the beach and threw my camera in the air ;))

futureself said...

Hope it didn't hit you on the way down :D

thorsten said...

Was a close call. But I always have a plan!

;))

ReverendMilo said...

Thorsten love the pic, but the instance I saw it, I could tell you had thrown it in the air set on delay.


Nice font work too, Love the added iconography!

thorsten said...

haha, right Milo.

There is no way to toss up a D3 and look relaxed about it!

Nicole said...

Yay, I entered! Best of luck to all!

ReverendMilo said...

And with that exposure you had to have a hefty flash attached!

If anything the pic is a testament to your upper body strength!!

Happy new year!

Zort70 said...

Right I'm out for the evening.

Have a happy and safe evening and a Happy New Year to all.

Just Thinking said...

Happy New Year to you Zort!

maven said...

Happy New Year, Zort!

ChrisL said...

Hey all. That's the final tradition of the festive season, the Pantomime, over with. Is it just me or do they get weirder every year...

Rev, any time you and the little one are visiting the UK please feel free to come over, I've some prints that could do with that personal touch!

Thorsten, cool New Year card. The old throwing the camera in the air trick worked out well for you.

Happy New Year to all.

Martyn said...

Well, i'm off to enjoy my evening of alcohol, food and music.

Thank you all for making the last four months the highlight of my year and look forward to speaking/seeing you all in 2010.

Happy New Year Folks!!!

mungonna said...

Since Time Immemorial, from when our ancestors ventured forth from cold cave and observed that the sunlit day had begun to be longer rather than the terrifying shorter, and brought forth the champagne and cigars in celebration thereof, to todays tweet heard around the world the instant it is witnessed, The New is heralded with Hope in heart.

As fantastic as this year has been,may all your Hopes be met and exceeded in the New!

MEL

DeAnne said...

Happy New Year to each of you, and may 2010 be the best year yet (for ALL of us)!

Happy New Year everyone and God's blessings to meet your every need!

:-x

Claire said...

Happy New Year everyone! But I'm going to call it, Happy-Year-of-the-Last-Season-of-LOST!!!

I hope everyone has a safe and fun New Year's!

andalone said...

I stopped by Michael's after I left the office. They had an awesome sale, and I was able to find frames for three of my non-Arg LOST-themed prints. I didn't want to spend much money on the framing of these, rather to save the funds for the DCaaPB 16 & the prints by Justin, Dusty and Jim. I was able to pick up these frames for $7 each. I will have to get a different mat for The Black Rock Storm but Jacob's Dog and Progress look terrific!
Progress
Jacob's Dog

Happy New Year to all Losties and Argers. My hope is that 2010 proves to be a successful and joyful time for all of you.

RobPerrin said...

andalone - Agreed, those 2 frames look great.

chaseter said...

andalone, where did you get that black rock art???

-charter

andalone said...

I saw it in the fanart section at DarkUFO and followed link to Zazzle. I bought the 11x14 size. I think it was $14.25 plus shipping.

andalone said...

here is Zazzle link for Progress. I was wrong print size is 11x15. but my frame opening is 11x14:

LostiePat said...

Happy New Year, everyone!

Rev - loved the video - thank you for the chuckle!

ChrisL said...

Great work andalone. Fabulous frames.

andalone said...

ChrisL - It is always a good day when the fangirl and the penny-pincher can peacefully co-exist in the same body. :)

ChrisL said...

andalone ;-)

kiwilostie said...

Nice one Zort - entered but said no to terms ie dont put me in the draw.
Good fun.
And Happy 01/01/10 to everyone!

Nicole said...

Argh that black rock painting is $45.93 for little old me in ireland!

Nicole said...

Andalone, where did you get the Jacob's dog print??

andalone said...

Nicole,

Nicole said...

Thanks a million and happy new year! :)

JPL said...

@Andalone - thanks for the info. Will now also be the proud owner of Progress.

@Rev & Thorsten - priceless!!! You guys should consider teaming up.

@All - As we bid farewell to 2009, I'd also like to wish you all a very Happy New Year! May everything you hope, dream, or wish for come to fruition.

It is amazing what can happen in such a short amount of time with the fine folks that post here. Damon fortunately found Carlton and a Polar Bear... and I fortunately found "you all everybody" and a Zort.

comixguru said...

Happy New Year All! :)

andalone said...

JPL - lol "a"Zort? THE ZORT!

Happy New Year and New Decade!

comixguru said...

just entered the contest- Thanks, Zort! and thanks to all who submitted questions :)

Spy Hill Skates said...

Happy twenty ten all!

ObFuSc8 said...

Happy New Year! Wishing youalleverybody an amazing 2010!

RobPerrin said...

My New Year's resolution is to limit my F5 usage to 5 presses per day, MAX.

kiwilostie said...

Rob - good luck with that!

RobPerrin said...

And Happy New Year one and all. I hope 2010 is full of happy surprises.

maven said...

Happy New Year from the west coast! :)

ChrisL said...

Good morning ARGers and welcome to 2010!

Lisa said...

Good morning everyone, 2010 looks to be wonderful in my neck of the woods. Hope yours will be too. On next Friday I will be one year older as well so it always starts out good ;-)

Sayid'sgirl said...

Good Morning All
Welcome to 2010!

Kelly said...

Happy New Year everyone!!! It's gonna be a great year!

thorsten said...

On January 26 Apple will introduce The Tablet, and you will see why 2010 is not like 2010!

;))

Lisa said...

2010 Contract
... your contract of friendship has been renewed for the New Year 2010!

My Wish for You in 2010

May peace break into your home and may thieves come to steal your debts.
May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet for $50 bills.
May love stick to your face like Vaseline and may laughter assault your lips!
May happiness slap you across the face and may your tears be that of joy
May the problems you had, forget your home address!

In simple words ............
May 2010 be the best year of your life!!!

ChrisL said...

Thorsten, San Francisco on the 26th will change everything. Can't wait. Talk about a happy new year!

Zort70 said...

2010 the year we make contact...with destiny.

Sounds like a movie (or a TV show) in the making :-)

A bright, sunny but very cold start to 2010 with a few flakes of snow.

andalone said...

Doesn't The Tablet sounds like something Jacob would use?

mungonna said...

omg..theres people out there jogging. welcome to 2010!?

mel

thorsten said...

I just watched the beginning of 5|06 (written by D&C), in which Eloise explains how Dharma found the Island with the Lamppost… If you watch it without the stress of seeing it the first time, this scene is pretty revealing.

Ellen B said...

Happy 2010 everyone! I'm starting the year out right by wearing my Locke limited edition tshirt! :)

maven said...

A Wonderful 2010 Morning to you all! Don't get too jealous watching the Rose Parade....beautiful day in Southern California!!

Currently watching "The Incident"...on one hand, sad my re-watch is almost over...on the other hand....BRING ON SEASON 6!

Ellen B said...

@thorsten -- Interesting. That's right where I am with the rewatch. I'm going to watch that episode today, and will bear in mind what you said. :)

ChrisL said...

Yes Thorsten, Just watched it a couple of days ago and felt the same. Tempted to watch again this evening now.

mungonna said...

Thor...Greetings. Weird that you mention that episode. I was thinking of it recently. From memory,,the whole Eloise presentation struck me as School Marm'ish..like being lectured to at a 3rd grade level..rather comic/satirical. I was surprised one of Losties didn't put a spitball on her forehead with a pea shooter.

As i recall,,it all boiled down to ,,knowing where the Island had been..kinda determined where it was going.( + or - a few " influences") There, is that idea, that nothing is really new,,everything builds on the preceding..or,,evolves.

I suppose one can try to make sense out of her mumbo jumbo and all the clicking and clacking computer out put in the background,,rather reminiscent of a sorcerers den. But Eloise plays that scene just over the top enough, for me to see a bit of satire in it. Again,,predicting the Imagination, is something Marketeers, Politicians and Religious Leaders try to perform, so they can tell you where you should be....imho.

Don't get me wrong,,the episode was great, and with Dez dropping out of her little class room,,that was just the right touch...imho.

What few clouds there was this a.m., have moved on.

MEL

thorsten said...

Here it just started snowing again, MEL ;))

Zort70 said...

I'm afraid today is Doctor Who day for me, a very important day indeed.

Lisa said...

It started snow here too again Thorsten and were supposed to get 8" tomorrow. At least it will cover up the dirty stuff. It better hold off till I get to the dump, I hate driving in it !

Martyn said...

First comment of 2010 from me! Hope you all have a great year. I'm with zort, doctor who is my priority and will watch it a little later as wii sports resort is takin precedence with my other family members.

@Thorsten...

The tablet has actually been announced? Must check my technology sites now.

thorsten said...

Hi Lisa, Martyn and Zort! Snowing really nice now!
Martyn, it will be announced on Jan. 26.
Will watch The Waters of Mars out of solidarity with you guys!

Amy Lynn said...

Hope everyone is having a fantastic New Year's Day. I'm working on a real song for once. :)

What is this tablet you all speak of?

ChrisL said...

Amy, it's the new and long awaited Apple device. Expect it to be beautiful, groundbreaking and life changing in the same way as so many Apple products. That and Season 6 premier in the space of a week or so... not sure my heart can take it.

Amy Lynn said...

ChrisL, cool (and you were comment 108!)

maven said...

Just got an email update from Entertainment Earth: All the LOST bobble heads (Faraday, Chang, Albert) now won't be available until Feb. 2010! They were originally listed as being available in mid-Jan.

Amy Lynn said...

Random LOST musing... finally reached "Man Behind the Curtain" in my re-watch! Hooray. Watching the scene between Richard and young Ben is INCREDIBLE, in light of The Incident/Esau. The look in Richard's eyes when Ben says he saw Emily on the island is great, if we now know that it meant that Esau was behind it.

thorsten said...

The Tablet will do for publishing what the iPod did for the music industry, Amy…

Will look like this…

futureself said...

Zort - did you cry as much as me in the last 20 mins of Doctor Who tonight? Bloody great episode!!

futureself said...

Geronimo is the new Alonzi :D

Thorsten, my crap limited internet access won't let me follow you link but I saw the NY times tablet artist impression and it looks very cool ;)

Eugene said...

For a brief moment I expected the camera would pull back to reveal the Linder Gallery on the Apple Future Shock video.

Happy New Year everyone!

futureself said...

That should be LA times not NY times :S

Zort70 said...

futureself - yes they definitely tugged at the emotion strings with that one.

thorsten said...

So The End of Time is over, and we have a new Doctor?

futureself said...

I'm too emotional to answer that Thorsten...

mungonna said...

Below is one of my favorite opening paragraphs. A new Dr Who?,, definitely the foundation of Lost..imho anyway..

So strong is the belief in life, in what is most fragile in life – real life, I mean – that in the end this belief is lost. Man, that inveterate dreamer, daily more discontent with his destiny, has trouble assessing the objects he has been led to use, objects that his nonchalance has brought his way, or that he has earned through his own efforts, almost always through his own efforts, for he has agreed to work, at least he has not refused to try his luck (or what he calls his luck!). At this point he feels extremely modest: he knows what women he has had, what silly affairs he has been involved in; he is unimpressed by his wealth or his poverty, in this respect he is still a newborn babe and, as for the approval of his conscience, I confess that he does very nicely without it. If he still retains a certain lucidity, all he can do is turn back toward his childhood which, however his guides and mentors may have botched it, still strikes him as somehow charming. There, the absence of any known restrictions allows him the perspective of several lives lived at once; this illusion becomes firmly rooted within him; now he is only interested in the fleeting, the extreme facility of everything. Children set off each day without a worry in the world. Everything is near at hand, the worst material conditions are fine. The woods are white or black, one will never sleep.

Martyn said...

TWas an emotional ending, they really dragged it out at the end. I will admit that I felt a little tear forming in my eye when he was saying goodbye. I'm a little bit annoyed about the change of moods after regen, I don't want to change, ooo, I'm the same person. What the hell was that about?

Anyway, intrigued by matt smith but suddenly felt a tug of, I actually care now that David tennant is leaving, more so than when it started.

ChrisL said...

As vital today as it was in '24 MEL, particularly to all of us here I think. And a fine opening paragraph for a new decade.

LotteryTicket said...

Hi all, pardon the absence.

Happy New Year to all. balmy 15 degrees (-9C) here in the midwest, so very quiet and peaceful.

LOST promos on all day! Put my rewatch on hold August 15 and now must pull a Room 23 to get it done. Please break into my house and rescue me on Feb. 1. Man at the door will fall victim to your Wookie Prisoner Gag.

Is that a new Doctor Who?

ChrisL said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
mungonna said...

CL. the first several paragraphs of his '34 update particularly seems applicable to the MIB/Jacob arc. The new Locke is" the courage to face them"...imho.

mungonna said...

Hello Lotto!! Its good.

MEL

LotteryTicket said...

MEL, yes. it's good.

ChrisL said...

Happy New Year LT. Good to see you.

ChrisL said...

MEL, I've not read the 34 version but you have me intrigued now. I shall be searching for it tomorrow.

maven said...

So happy to see you here, LT! Happy New Year. I'm almost done with the rewatch...it's bittersweet to be finishing it!

kiwilostie said...

Ha! Just doing some Firefox settings and a stat popped up - Ive visited LOSTArgs 1031 times! No wonder its top of the Most Visited list!

MeSoCrazy said...

Happy new year beloved LostArgies. (I just did a pirate arg out loud, because it felt right).

I remember a simpler time when I didn't need to play 'ketchup' and that time was, actually it was not at all simple, but it sure was fun. After next week the hope is that work (which I am currently, which is why I can pirate talk out loud as the office is empty) will not be as awful. Or at least allow me to play again. I finally got my two posters framed, the look beautiful. The framers loved them, loved the story of this crazy thing we did to get them. Will post pictures soon.

I apologize for my in and out, but I just wanted to say hello, welcome in 2010 (so far I've had better year's).

Rewatch. I'm hoping to do at least season 4 and 5, but I can't even get my dvr cleaned out from the week, crap I need to not work.

Okay, my ramblings must stop... here.. and continue on in my head.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I'm almost done with my second rewatch. Just have the Inccident to watch and I'll be finished.

Amy Lynn said...

Sayid's girl, I envy you! I'm just up to Through the Looking Glass. However, S4 and 5 are my two fave seasons, so this'll be fun!

Patmc said...

Happy New Year to everyone! I'm suffering through our 70 degree New Years day here in San Diego... wearing shorts and my Polar Beer shirt. :-)

I have finally worked my through seasons 1-4... and I'm finally about to start on my Damon and Carlton signed Dharma edition of my Season 5 BluRays. I am taking the day off to enjoy the Rose Bowl (go Oregon!) and just relax.

This has been my first time watching the earlier seasons all the way though in BluRay. It was actually a better experience than my original viewings, as I had never gone back through and re-watched them in high def! I'm realizing how much I'm really going to miss LOST when it's done in May (sigh).

comixguru said...

Happy New Year fellow Lost Argers!

:)

alteridiom said...

Happy New Year all! New season 1 month away, let the countdown begin. If anyone is interested I have Jay Ryan's Polar Bear that I am trying to sell/trade. Hit me with offers airisfree at gmail.com

Patmc said...

Damon Lindelof had a rather enigmatic Tweet today:

"IT BEGINS TODAY"

All caps? Possibly an anagram? I ran an anagram solver just for the hell of it. Here are some of my favorites:

-Basin Deity Got
-Bias God Entity
-Boat Deity Sign

Um... ok. Maybe not. :-)

RamHatter said...

Wow... I should have done a bit more online than the bare necessities the past day or two! (Time off from work and enjoying it with my family.) Didn't know my little prize lot would be up first.

Whoever wins, I hope you enjoy the Lost goodies.

I should be reading more of the comments instead of watching this bad Sugar Bowl game.

Oh yeah, I did receive an entry today for the Jacob's Cabin print today. It was a nice entry, too bad it is almost three weeks late.

kiwilostie said...

Has anybody outside of the US got their Stout print yet? Would be expecting it soonish.

maven said...

@Patmc: I saw that tweet earlier. Maybe it has to do with them writing the finale?

Just finished watching "The Incident"...what a powerful ending to Season 5. My LOST Re-Watch is over....one month until Season 6!

vabauer said...

Maven, I'm with you and so is probably every one here, The Incident is one of the best episodes ever, I just saw an ad for the Final Season that has the scene where Juliet slips from Sawyer's grip, it still give me chills every time I watch it! The anguish of the moment, the acting, it's all flawlessly done

maven said...

@vabauer: Yes, that scene is so hard to watch!

Happy Birthday to our own Melissa_Lossa! She's one of the TLCers from way back! She also ran the TLC Book Club (that kind of fizzled out). Have a great day, ML!

MiddayShadows said...

Just wanted to wish everyone here a Happy New Year!

Rachelskid said...

Happy New Year everyone!

has anyone received Lost the print yet? waiting anxiously...

Zort70 said...

A few people have received the LOST poster as they have sent me signature pictures.

I haven't had mine delivered to the UK yet.

Martyn said...

I'm still waiting on my Polar Bear print. Parcelforce seem to have LOST it :s

Kelly said...

Snowing again in MA. It is good makeup for the city!

@ Patmc - I was really hoping for an Oregon win - sorry man.

Lisa said...

we got about 6 inches of the white stuff over night, it looks beautiful ! Now waiting to see if we will get the other 6 tonight or will it miss up and go up north.

Kelly said...

I know you probably already told us, but where are you again, Lisa?

Lisa said...

right above you in NH ( just about the boarder of Mass actually ) probably pretty close to you depending on where in MA you live. I'm on the western side of NH

Ian said...

Did anyone see the Tweet from Damon yesterday:

TheRealDamon: IT BEGINS TODAY

I might be slow, does anyone have an idea what he meant? The last year of Lost, maybe?

Kelly said...

@ Lisa - I'm in Springfield but work sometimes up in Greenfield, so I bet we are pretty close to each other! You definitely get more of the white stuff than we do down here!!

Lisa said...

yeah, pretty close. I'm just above Greenfield NH in Antrim. I don't get down there much but I've been to springfield many times.

Kelly said...

Man - one month from today... I can remember when Zort's countdown was in the high 100s at the beginning of the ARG.

ChrisL said...

Ian, it was suggested yesterday that Damon's Tweet might have referred to the filming of the S6 finale...

Hi all.

Amy Lynn said...

ChrisL, I think that's premature... they had four or five episodes left to film around Christmas time. I think it's just referring to their first day back after the holidays.

ChrisL said...

Amy, a four episode finale! That would do nicely ;-)

Amy Lynn said...

We know the finale is three episodes, broken over two weeks, so obviously the fourth is the set up? :)

ChrisL said...

I didn't know we knew that! It's upsetting me now thinking about the end game.

Hey all..Everytime the idea of .."the end of Lost" enters my thoughts, I remember John Belushi's great " Give Up!!?? diatribe in Animal House. I am restored by it.

In a way..Belushi's rant also applies to that white screen reversed LOST ending of season 5..Now that the past has been explored for all its bleeps bloops and blunders,,its Time to move on to the future..creating it,,as to not to repeat the past. Salvation, redemption, awaits. So It Begins.

Happy Jan 2!

Hi all! I have been working on my DCaaPB shadowbox. It's not quite finished yet, but coming along nicely. Of course Thorsten's LostArgs poster made the cut! (and so did miniature Face-On-A-Stick. She threw a fit to be included.)

Okay - I screwed up the link. going low-tech now.

Looking good andalone :-)

maven said...

@Andalone: What a great memory that is going to be!

I thought Damon's IT BEGINS TODAY might refer to them actually writing the finale script?

One month......

Amy Lynn said...

In truly pathetic news, I have finally gotten AHEAD of my re-watch schedule. If I watch one episode per day, I'll finish 1/31.

Just Thinking said...

andalone- I always screw up the links-but maybe it works better to cut and paste the URL, as going to the link always loses my place in the blog.

Very cool box- nice way to have a "scrapbook" that you can see all at once. Clever to put the Baggage Claim in the CD case. Maybe something darker behind the Chang napkin to make it stand out?

Speaking of non links- TV guide this week has Josh Holloway featured. I bought the newsstand issue- but it is online @ http://www.tvguidemagazine.com/feature/paradise-lost-3608.html. The article has some casting info for s6 and is a little bit spoilery as to Sawyer's relationships. But could I resist? Uh unh.

Hubby is out snowblowing a bit- we don't have tons, but just to keep up. Nice hibernation day. I'm going to watch the commentary for "The Constant" to try and get some inside view on Daniel's time traveling mouse and where he got the settings from to send Eloise's mind off. (If he gave the settings to Des from the future, so that he knew them in 1996, where did they come from in the first place?)

I really hope that even if the world continues to do its upside down thing this year that everyone finds their own personal "progress". I'm going to try- oops there is no "try" only "do", as my favorite little wise mentor says. :)

Just Thinking said...

And - oh- The last David Tennent Dr. Who is on tonight on BBC America! Had to go la, la,la again through the Dr comments earlier- but I think this is the episode you were referring to. So we're not far behind- and I will have tissues nearby.

andalone said...

@Just Thinking - Thank. I have a few more pieces to add to the shadowbox. That Chang scrap is just a placeholder. There is some stuff that will go behind it. I think the spray adhesive for the little poster pieces got to me, and I had to take a break for a bit.

Hey LOST ARG'ers!

Because it seems like no one is talking about this, if anyone is interested in picking up Hurley's Curse aka The Numbers, you should head over to www.nakatomiinc.com and follow the instructions there.

Just sayin'....

MilkcanRocks said...

@ Lottery

Thanks for posting the link - we posted our comments about the same time.

CHECK OUT NAKATOMI!

LotteryTicket said...

like minds Milk, like minds . . . good luck tonight!

Amy Lynn said...

Signed up for the mailing list... I don't really need The Numbers, but I'm faster on email than a lot of other people who might want it.

DeAnne said...

Hi All! HNY :)

Am I the only one that thinks the tweet by Damon has to do with some crazy New Year's Resolution. Like... IT BEGINS TODAY: Wear Less Man Jewelry. (lol - I keed, I keed - i heart Damon). If it is some sort of resolution, do you all have any crazy ideas? ;)

Andalone, the shadowbox is looking great! I think some other people are also working on shadowboxes. It would be fun to see them all when finished.

Thorsten, this morning I was watching a fun show on PBS and it reminded me of your latest card. Next time you want to throw your camera, just fly a kite instead.

Make: Aerial Kite Photography :)

And welcome back Lotto

Have a great day everyone!

Michael Ausiello tweeted to Damon and received a reply:

Is that a clue? @EWDocJensen, a little help here? RT @DamonLindelof Specificity is not my strong suit. But there's two sides to every coin.

LT & Milkcan -- Berry berry interesting.

mungonna said...

I hereby resolve to quit trying to find specificity in any words from D&C, and..oh yea..give up on getting Evies personal cell phone number, that to for the new year.

thorsten said...

This is great, whmscl, I love Kitography!
;))

Thanks for the Link, Lotto. As usual you are worth your weight in Au!

maven said...

Has it ever been confirmed which is the real Damon: DamonLindelof or TheRealDamon?

TheRealDamon tweeted "Had a weird dream last night. Been shaking it off all day. Everything feels a little... Sepia." about 2 hrs ago.

ChrisL said...

Was Damon referring to the fact that the artists can begin to sell their remaining prints?

thorsten said...

DamonLindelof

What does an identity crisis feel like?

RobPerrin said...

ChrisL - I had the same thought after seeing the Doyle news.

Eugene said...

MEL, I was just telling my daughter that my NY resolution was to stop looking for meaning in Darlton's words. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

mungonna said...

Wow..one shakes off a Sepia dream..the other is faced with the ultimate Surreal..Who Am I?...hmmm..seems to me the " real" Damon would not shake off a dream, but would rather pursue it. This idea is strongly connected to the identity crisis question. So,,the DamonL twit appeals to me as being authentic,,only if he is into Surrealism as much as I believe him to be..which may or may not answer a question put to Carlton that he refused to answer..


WHAT!!??

If you want to keep you place in the blog when clicking on links, right click it and open it in a new window or tab. That's what I do.

Zort70 said...

Just added a small post on the front page for the Numbers print info.

Thanks Lotto and MilkCanRocks for letting us know.

Darlton's tweets are going to get interesting from here on in !

Right to bed I go, night all.

mungonna said...

Me and my questions,,is nakatomiinc to be the sole outlet for all 16 extra prints? Reading thru naka there , or at least Foozareli, there is a hint of all 16 , but not an outrite declaration. Is just ,,Tom Doyle for the Numbers to be sold at naka and the others at whatever outlets they choose?..need specificity here.

Will I ever let Damon off the hook for that word?

MEL

ObFuSc8 said...

High ARGies!

Just popping in and checking stuff from work.

LT and milkcanrocks got to the nakatomi post before I did--thanks guys.

We can't be sure, but I have wondered if BOTH @DamonLindelof and @therealdamon are actually DL. Cuse follows only @DamonLindelof, though. But it's @therealdamon that's "verified". Either way, not reading to much into their tweeds. Partly because of limited time, partly because a bunch of them are jokes. How fun must it be watching us spin everything into a possible clue? I think whmscl is right about IT referring to a resolution or
something.

OK. Will stop commenting from work and go home. I blame the iPhone for that.

Nighty night Zort. Don't let the medusa spiders or Smoke Monsters bite!

ObFuSc8 said...

MEL-- I think Nakatomi is just selling Doyle's print. Each artist has 50 copies of their print that they can chose to make available beginning today. Daniel Danger cryptically said something similar. I will keep you all as updated as I can if I hear more, I am just a bit slower from work.

LostiePat said...

@ObFuSc8 - I heard a few months ago that the Twitter account "DamonLindelof" is not the real Damon so I began following TheRealDamon (not that it matters - he's not an active tweeter). For what it's worth, I just checked and found that Cuse is following both accounts. Guess he's keeping an eye on the Damon poser in case he says something outrageous. :-)

Lisa said...

andalone, I think you win the prize for being the truest lost fan ever ! And here I thought I had it hands down ! lol Nope.

AteamBlog.com said...

"DamonLindelof" was some other guy and he gave the account to Damon some time ago. So both accounts are legit.

Just in case anyone wants to drop $40k on the complete set, checkout ebay #220534808232. I don't think I've seen anyone sell the DCAPB print before- I wonder what it would get on its own.

@andalone- I was just looking through the twitpics you posted and saw the Black Rock piece. Where did you get that?

mungonna said...

Ob8,,Hey! how ya doin? Yea, thats my read also. Just seems there is the implication of more than that with naka's verbage. PRONOUNS!! they are just sooo not of specificity.

Wow,, finally got my reservation confirmed in writing to go you know where, thats some specificity I've been looking for!

Interestingly..the words ..specific and specifically,,are broken down down in pronounced syllables as SPE..cif..ics..for example..BUT..specificity doesn't work that way..its..spec..i..fic..i..ty..uuhhmm ..like..SPES E FISitE.or is it SPES e FIS itE...no wonder hardly anyone uses it. Mr I don't care about his motivation! I just want him dead!!,,i will not let you live down using that word!

harumph!

Amy Lynn said...

@Ateamblog... um, that Ebay appears to be TomRex...

Lisa said...

so does that mean my 3 are worth umm $10,000 or so ??? Caviar dreams and all.

maven said...

@MEL: What did you get "in writing" for the Hawaii trip? I've just gotten one email and one that was a terms/condition one. Am I missing something? I know my charge went through. :)

Amy Lynn said...

@Lisa...um, yikes. Yeah, I dunno. Hopefully, he'll be entertaining best offers of around $1k or so, which I think is closer to the worth.

Lisa said...

roflmao..... I do hope you know I meant it as a joke. AmyLynn Mine are here to stay. I bought them because I loved them, not for resale. :-)
