Queue Surfing 129

Tomorrow the poll to find the most popular poster will start, but until then this image photographed and compiled by Dennis is a great reminder of the event on Tuesday.

Zort, a little while ago I realized why you seemed so familiar to me. You remind me of Kermit the Frog!

Kermit was always having to lead a motley disorganized mob of felt muppets and get them going in a more or less single direction. He was always put upon and looked to for guidance and he sometimes was a little out of his league but he *always* kept a grace, a gentleness, and an equanimity about him. Always very humble, even self-deprecating. Didn't say as much as his compatriots but everybody always listened when he did speak.

The only difference I can see is his fellow muppets didn't always show Kermit how appreciated he was.

I hope you know.

(Oh yeah, plus, he's green and you're not).

Great job with the poster, and a really nice idea!

Cosmically Yours, Zort, from all of us at The Kharma Initiative

Ben said...

I love that MEL wore a shirt and tie. OLD SCHOOL.

Zort70 said...

Thanks TKI, it's not easy being green.

Also my comment from the last post din't show up so Capcom I want to say thanks for that beautiful poem.

ChrisL said...

Morning! What a delicious surprise to wake and find this wonderful collage. Dennis, top job, fantastic.

Off to the framers now with The Barracks and The Statue.

Ellen said...

Great pic!
xxoo

thorsten said...

haha, great Dennis!

Sam G said...

Yea! I made the homeless people list.

Nice work Dennis.
That's a nice group of people.

ReverendMilo said...

Another great collage!!

TY!

for those that have solved Justin's puzzle. you can try the one I made ages ago when the URL list was still secret.

It only goes 2 or three URL's deep and was meant as a slower way to release the URL's for those that wanted to be spoiled, but the URL list got leaked before I dropped it out there.

impatientashell.com

Justin is working it right now for his own amusement, but admittedly I made the first clue rather tough and requiring a few different disciplines in the hopes that as a group it would take more than an hour to crack.

Sandman90 said...

@Ob - XL but L would do as well. That would be fantastic (but only if you end up with extra)! Should it happen, here's my email: dr.sandman90@gmail.com.

Love the pics Zort. Somehow, I don't think you'll be pulling back from this site anytime soon! Do give yourself some time, my friend. Everyone here understands how hard you've been working.

ReverendMilo said...

No pulling back, we have LU to keep on with as well, plus we need to await the arrival of the last tube and hopefully any of the 1 of a kind pieces from the show that our community managed to recover from the arty-smarty society :)

LostiePat said...

Love the photos. Very cool that everyone wore name tags, including Daniel Danger. Priceless!

mungonna said...

Good Morning All,,YES! A great collection of Lost Fandom !! Thanks very much Dennis! Great work! an excellent addition to my Lost files.,,,and Yes, I wore tie with the idea that I WOULD BE the ONLY one there with a tie. But I decided to go with the Black / White Motif so prevalent thru-out LOST and I found a tie at Sears ( of all places) that was just the rite combo of b/w and the all important gray, so it all worked out.I could not have been more LOST imho.

Great irony it was, as Damon referred to us as homeless,,a shot of me in tie, came up on the CNN video; a Hurley " dude!" moment for sure.

Ellen B said...

Milo, I guess I am now officially part of the arty-smarty society. I purchased more than one piece! ;)

CallieJo25 said...

God, I can't wait until I finally make it to a Lost-related event at which I am surrounded by Losties. Only, what... Five and a half months to make that dream come true?
Hmmm, anyone planning a big finale event in the Philadelphia tri-state area? =D

Amy Lynn said...

You all look great.

Amy Lynn said...

And MEL, I think suit and tie is cool
for a gallery opening.

ReverendMilo said...

Ellen, only if you want to be!

I have a large collection of what I am told is art, but my art professor still looks at me cross-eyed 17 years after the last time he instructed me.

I still remember the day he told me that he hoped I pursued technology and spared the art world from the kitschy crap that I considered art. It was about 15 minutes after the meeting with the board where he had recommended me for the keystone etching for the new auditorium.

He is still a great friend.

Ellen B said...

Milo, I hear you. My house is overflowing with art from family members, friends, and others. We're going to have to move to a new house to find places for all the new prints. I wonder what the other retirees will think of my Lost art when we move to an "active adult" community?

Sandman90 said...

Don't get me wrong, Rev - I didn't mean Zort should pull back entirely, but he's got to be killing himself putting collages, recaps, and what not, together. Let's face it, this is what folks like us do in our spare time - it's fun. I'm saying take a little time for yourself as well. We all deserve it.

Sandman90 said...

Maven, Forget to tell you that I loved seeing the quilt again in Rev's and LT's live footage. Did you still decide not to get a signature on the back?

maven said...

Morning all...so excited to see all our lovely faces again...ahhh, sweet memories! Thanks, Dennis...awesome idea!

@Sandman90: OMG, no! I got Carlton and Damon to both sign the back label. Here's a pic on my Lost Quilt blog! Now the quilt is complete!

Another collage idea is to get all the "arty-smarty" purchasers to send in a pic of them with their art piece!

Sandman90 said...

Mel, now if you had only been dragging a teddy bear on a rope...

Sandman90 said...

Terrific, Maven!

Amy Lynn said...

maven, that's seriously wonderful!!!

Zort70 said...

Fantastic Maven, I love the little message.

Zort70 said...

Don't think of it as pulling back more like slowing down gradually.

DeAnne said...

YAY!! Great collage! Thanks Dennis and Zort! I'm thrilled to have the honored place of being near Darlton!!! ;)

whmscl

Sandman90 said...

For the print collectors and supercollectors who have held off on framing, I'm really hoping to hear about and see some pics of the finished masterpieces.

thorsten said...

Wow, from your constant.
Totally amazing, Maven.

Crushproof said...

Super cool!

andalone said...

ha ha - face-on-a-stick made it to the homeless people collage! Thanks to comixguru, maven, Lotto, Justin, and all the others who toted my head around for the festivities.

The Kharma Initiative said...

Milo, you reveal new layers every day.

Ellen B, glad you picked up some original art, and even after the opening reception! So wished I could have bought a few things too, but way out of my price range.

You'll be the coolest, hippest one in any "adult community" you choose.

If anyone is interested, according to the gallery, the Locke t-shirts were made through ABC and the gallery was not involved except to sell them.

Anybody else buy more than one shirt and end up with the same number on them?

Ellen B said...

Maven, the quilt is fantastic! So, my outfit for a snowbound day is Milo's "fake URL" tshirt. We really do have a blizzard here.

Ellen B said...

KI, I bought more than 1 piece, and didn't even manage to get a tshirt!

mungonna said...

Zort/Dennis...Okay, which one of you put the magnet behind the picture? I've got many things to do,,but i just can't pull myself away. There seems to be an invisible attraction holding me here.

futureself said...

lol, the quilt IS love...great work :)

matthew said...

wow this picture is awesome!

thank you!

ill be sure to get this printed and framed.

woot number 3!

AteamBlog.com said...

Guess I'm not cool enough to make the collage.

I would like to thank the redhead under Damon's picture for giving me a Dharma ping pong ball. That was pretty awesome! :)

-Jawapez

ChrisL said...

Maven, that is fantastic!

DeAnne said...

You're welcome Jawapez! I was happy to share. :) I hope you enjoy it for ever and ever!!

maven said...

Sorry for all the east coasters in the big blizzard today....while I bask in Los Angeles in 70+ degree sun!

Sandman90 said...

I figured now is a good time to share a little LOST ARG story with you that really highlights some of the terrific attributes of the folks who dwell here.

A long time ago, when Walt's Kidnapping went on sale, I was fortunate enough to purchase one even though I wasn't crazy about it at the time. I had been immensely enjoying the musings of MEL and really felt heartbreak for him when he was unable to keep his collection going given his role in and history with this project. I offered to sell him the print and after sending it to him, told him to just give the money to charity or someone else. Well, MEL managed to floor me, paying not only for the poster, but GENEROUSLY contributing to one of my favorite local charities in the Kansas City Metro area. Moreover, I was elated to later receive in the mail one of the Ithinkthatmanwasyou.com bookmarks.

MEL managed not only to solidify this as a fantastic personal experience for me, but simultaneously renewed my faith in the potential of man. MEL was a complete stranger to me, but no more. This is a man of singular character and should serve as a great example to us all. We are lucky to have him amongst us.

Sorry to out you, MEL, but I was waiting until this was over to share the story. Kudos to you.

Ellen B said...

Maven, you keep reminding us. ;)

MEL is the man!

Ellen B said...

Now...back to watching the snow....errr....blizzard. ;)

ChrisL said...

Sandman90, I'm loving that story. I knew there was something about MEL! And the story reveals something heartwarming about you too. I've come across a number of stories such as this while being a part of this troupe. It has seemed to have gathered together some genuinely fine examples of humanity.

maven said...

Sandman90: That is such an awesome story...from both of your ends! You reached out to help a fellow Lostie out of the goodness of your heart and MEL did, too! Kudos to both of you!

mungonna said...

...Sandman...!!!...maybe you can help me. I got the opened Hawaii Premier Trip link on my computer. But i can't delete it or erase it or anything. I even turned off this contraption and rebooted..its still there. It won't go away! Spyware won't even touch it!
Any ideas?

Anne said...

There's only one way to fix it, MEL . . .

. . . you HAVE TO GO (BACK) to Hawaii

Sandman90 said...

Stepped out for a bit... I think your computer is trying to tell you something, MEL. But seriously, yikes! I'm not much of computer expert. Just fried my wife's laptop a couple of weeks ago. My advice...get a Mac and go to Hawaii! Good luck and sorry I'm not more helpful.

mungonna said...

Anne...HAAAH!!!..like Kate, i wonder if this,, is what all of this has been about..Knowing what she found by going back, draws me in even closer.

MEL

Dr. Bradley said...

Love it! Gotta say I'm quite partial to my cigar picture :)

mungonna said...

Don't feel Sorry Sandman.. Just yesterday I fried my computer at work. According to Tech..motherboard and all..So i got to leave early anyway. How fortunate that it made it thru the buy nows..or maybe.. the buy nows brought it to its early demise??

Maybe I'll try a pizza with ham and pineapple on it. See how that goes. btw.. my need for WK was puny compared to the needs of those kids.

MEL

Amy Lynn said...

Finally got Walt's Kidnapping matted down... I think it looks a lot better now.

ChrisL said...

Nice Amy.

maven said...

Looks great, Amy!

kiwilostie said...

maven, what an extraordinary piece that quilt is. Have heard lots about it, and now have seen all the detail of it, on your blog. Amazing! What a great end to it, having Darlton sign it. A finale quilt coming up maybe?... !! :)

maven said...

@kiwilostie: Thanks...it was truly a labor of love. That quilt only covered S1-4 at the time I made it. MUST do one of S5 & 6 with other highlights of "My Lost Experience"!

comixguru said...

Happy Saturday y'all. I hope it is okay that i am posting this here:

I have some extra LOCKE t-shirts that I am auctioning off and the profits will go to the Lange Foundation. (http://www.langefoundation.com/index/Home.html)

I have 1 XS, 2 L and 1 XL.

you can email me at comixguru at gmail dot com and let me know what shirt size you are intersted in and i will add your email to the Bidding thread for that shirt.

Bid as many times as you want until 6pm PST 12/20/09.

cheers!

thorsten said...

I agree with Sandman, MEL. Get a Mac, one of the lovely new 27inch iMacs with the quadcore Nehalem chips, or you wait to the next MacBook Pro update in january. That one you can take on the plane to Honululu then!

Just Thinking said...

Maven- someone like you deserves good things I think, so I'm glad you had fun with Damon & Carlton.

And Mel- you generous thing- I saw those floating island and eye in ash paintings at G88 and said- Mel's going to have a field day with these. Did they strike a chord?

comixguru said...

and Dennis- thank you so much for the great collage of photos! :) Love seeing all those familiar and smiley faces!

comixguru said...

Maven- so awesome! love that your Lost Quilt has it's own blog. :)

maven said...

@JustThinking: That's the sweetest thing to say! Thanks! And I had a heavenly day that far exceeded my expectations.

comixguru said...

@Sandman - i can also attest to MEL's awesomeness. Although his posts are a little wacky- and I must admit that I don't understand them most of the time- the man has a heart of gold. He was a complete gentleman and a total sweetheart when I met him at Gallery 1988. :)

and Maven- i think it's so awesome that Damon signed the quilt as your Constant!:)

mungonna said...

JT..Yes, a very fun chord at that. Seeing the Art and discussions with a few of the artists have reassured me that I am not alone in my perspective on LOST.

These two caught my interest the most.

RobPerrin said...

Hi folks,

I've written up a history of the lostargs.com poster that was presented to Darlton at Gallery 1988. If you're interested please check it out here: lostargs.com poster

The post also includes photos and video frames along with a summary timeline of the project.

If you notice any errors or important omissions in the post please let me know and I will make appropriate changes. You can send those directly to me at roobperrin (at) gmail (dot) com. The double-o is not a typo.

I had a lot of fun going back through the lostargs.com posts from the past few weeks to research the article. Hope you enjoy it.

comixguru said...

@MEL - you are certainly not in my debt. If anything- we are indebted to Lotto. She's a gem. and a super star. :)

thorsten said...

Globa squeals of joy, indeed!
Great Rob, Thanks!

Amy Lynn said...

I can't wait to meet MEL. He seems like a great guy.

Just Thinking said...

Mel- the first picture I guessed, the second I'm kind of surprised, and the third is sweet!

Rob- I am going to print that and put it in the scrapbook too- thank you.

mungonna said...

Great Write Rob!! What a testament of something so extraordinary! Beauty!

comixguru said...

@Rob awesome write-up, Rob! :) Thanks for chronicling the adventure!

mungonna said...

Amy...

I bought a poster, now I want to
go to Hawaii..

Amy Lynn said...

I'm pondering Hawaii.

LotteryTicket said...

Thorsten, did you feel a "collective sigh of relief echoed through the blogosphere" ?

Rob with two oo's, a great article and tribute to an idea that become a reality. I am hoping that the graphic I created will be released so that everyone connect name with face (or logo in the case of dr mum). Zort?

Maven, an example to all, from concept to finish. I remember hearing about this mysterious quilt so many years ago and maybe that's how I found The Lostargs Blog. Job well done and good luck on Quilt 2.0

MEL. that picture does capture a moment. I think one of all 6 smushed in would have been more accurate. Scoutpost and ReverendMilo opting for the back hatch cushy ride.

LotteryTicket said...

thank you comix. much appreciated.

LotteryTicket said...

Rob, interested in doing an interview with Mr. Duval? let me know.

mungonna said...

JT...ahh the Man in Black I was aware of since school days, but he had to be patient until I let my Locke go and threw my Jacob into the fire. LOST opened up the opportunity for my Man in Black to claim his rightful place. I am an empty vessel that he speaks thru.

thorsten said...

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, Lotto, as if millions of voices cried out in joy and were suddenly jubilating!

Dan said...

@ZORT - love the idea of a poll, but unless the Stout poster is more liked than The Crash, a new poll probably won't be very beneficial in terms of telling us anything new.

I propose, if this is even possible, a poll in which we rank all of the posters from most liked to least liked. I think I've seen this sort of thing on espn.com so I believe it can be done but who knows...

Amy Lynn said...

A few days ago, we were talking about the possibility that Evangeline Lilly asked that her likeness not be used in this project... it would explain why any poster that has Kate on it doesn't really look like anyone other than a non-descript brunette... anyone know how we'd actually find out?

mungonna said...

Comix..see how she is!?..I kept telling her that and she didn't believe me. Okay, the Geraldo Rivera of LostArg wasn't quite spot on, but Lotto is finally realizing what I meant. You the BEST Lotto!

MEL

Just Thinking said...

Amy Lynn- that could be a question for the artist interviews.

Just Thinking said...

I'm not sure Mel- but are you saying you've given up being a martyr or a saint and gone over to the dark side?

mungonna said...

JT..oh no.no. no...The Man In Black..IS the SURREAL. No doubt in my mind. The Black,,is not evil in this case, but is the Unknown,,the Mystery, the Who Am I? of the infinite Imagination that is the Island. Its only a matter of time.

Just Thinking said...

Ahh-something not quite seen in the smoke. All right then.

Zort70 said...

Hi all, Rob I've just sent you an email.

Dan, you are right and a few others have suggested an alternative as well.

The vote will not be a straight which is the best poll.

Good night all, I've been wrapping presents so it is feeling very much like Christmas.

futureself said...

Amy Lynn, I would suggest emailing either Tyler Stout or Eric Tan to ask if there was any restrictions put in place for Kate's depiction. I personally would be surprised if this was the case, although I'd be interested to find out what they say if they do get back to you ;)

And Rob - love your history of the LostArgs poster blog :)

Amy Lynn said...

futureself, I might do that. It just seems awkward to me that the depictions of Jack, Sawyer, Locke, etc. are so dead on, and Kate never looks like EL.

futureself said...

I know what you mean AmyLynn, more obviously so in the Stout print. The Crash depicts a very cartoony Sawyer so I think this makes Kate's unlikeness less strange. The Stout one however does capture everyone else very well. Kate does seem rather odd.

mungonna said...

I suspect The Man in Black will have His way with Smokie,,if he hasn't already.

I bore witnesss to the defeat of Smokie by the youngsters in front of the line at 1988. While their " antics" on the curbside were deplorable and drew the attention of LA's Finest,,mr Slusho Show biz Steve and crew,,perhaps only for being in the state of delirium from sleep deprivation, demonstrated the freedom from Smokie,, that the Surrealist Andre Breton admitted could lead to a huge influx to the misdemeanor's court.

mungonna said...

Amy and future..I look at the Stout poster and see Evie with ease in Kate. It may not be from her " best side" as I think she believes, but I did not give her characterization even a second thought. Looks like Evie to me.

mungonna said...

Zort..speakin about e-mail,,tried sending you something and was told your mail box was full.

MEL

LotteryTicket said...

MEL Geraldo? Really? I'm way taller.

You know your feeling better when you can taste the ice cream. Tonight flavor "Heaps of Love"

Editing the live feed from Gallery 88, what in the world kind of photography is this! I'm dizzy. Sorry folks. Did I make everyone ill? There's like 2 secs of still and 1 hour of crazy.

LotteryTicket said...

maybe I'll clip together just the blurry stuff and call it The Lost Unseen Art Project; overlay a little "Monsters Are Such . . "

Rob said...

I've updated my blog post with a graphic showing who's who on the poster. It's very cool. Thanks Lotto and Zort.

mungonna said...

I see the moments of still..in between all the chaotic,,as very realistic.

LotteryTicket said...

realistic maybe, but reality is giving me a headache

send photo please, you know which

Rob said...

Whoa. I totally lost my last name in my previous post. What's up with that?

RobPerrin said...

Figured it out. Dang multiple Google accounts.

LostiePat said...

Rob/RobPerrin - amazing blog post! Thank you for creating the poster timeline and associating names with faces. That poster will be a lasting memory for me, especially if we end up on the S6 DVD!

RobPerrin said...

LostiePat - Thank you, it was fun to relive the past few weeks while putting it together. Full credit for the labelled poster goes to LotteryTicket.

LostiePat said...

Lotto - thank you! It's great to be able to put names with faces.

So look what I found on ebay - someone is selling their autographed poster from G1988 event:

http://tiny.cc/qnEyh

Already up to $376.42 and it's not even one of the 300 prints. Wow!

Just Thinking said...

OK skid, screech, change of subject. I still am trying to get into Jeremy Davies' course on LU- read that someone on the LU board says they asked Greg Nations what's the deal. Per poster- he said it is a real course and there is a trick to getting in. So, has anyone gotten in and care to share the trick?

Justin said...

I posted the answer to my clues (a URL link) on DamonCarltonAndMe.com! If you haven't figured them out or just don't want to, you can now see my print for yourself. Go check it out if you haven't already!

And to everyone, THANKS for all the support and kind words!! It's really flattering. I'll be posting a "making of" for the print hopefully tomorrow. It'll have everything from my first thumbnails to ideas that didn't make it. We also have another giveaway and release planned VERY soon, so check back at the site often!

Capcom said...

Nice work Justin and Rob. :-)

Just Thinking said...

Yep -neat poster Justin.

About Kate's likeness-when I saw the hi res photo by Rev Milo of the Stout I thought it was more like than before- but still- the shape of the mouth seems wrong and that is defining for her I think.

Here is Revs pic:Rev's pic Stout

And here's a fan site one: Evie

Justin said...

Nice job on the photos! looks great!

mungonna said...

Justin..interesting perspective on Evie/ Kate. For me tho..Stout caught her eyes and nose accurately enuf for me to see Evie. I take notice of noses. After what the plastic surgeon did to mine, after the car wreck, I find them as works of Art. Evie's is a graceful waterfall.

MEL

kiwilostie said...

Amy Lynn, that depiction is a good likeness of the promo photo that he used. Someone posted a link to it in a previous thread, lost now... think it was a S1 and def what he drew from IMO. Hair tied up and all. Will try and find it.

Anne said...

MEL: man I could have posed for that photo, eesh. Look at Ob being all catalog model though.

Lotto: BTW, yes, thank you so much - I would not have been able to attend without your encouragement/assistance.

Rob: You might want to add to your post that ChrisL refused the monetary support and sent it to charity instead.

Just Thinking: I asked the LU guys about JUST THAT but didn't get an answer - they told me to keep trying. I'm not sure there's a trick besides stubbornness. Equivalent of banging on the poor prof's door "LET ME IIIIIIN~"?

I do have some unrelated insider info if anyone would like to hear it :X

kiwilostie said...

Ok, couldnt find the comment - no surprises there! Searched it however, and I think this is it. S4?
Eve

Amy Lynn said...

I was being nostalgic and reading all the comments from the very beginning of the ARG. Found this on the Lostpedia forum, re: Locke's Secret

"Damn. I really like Locke and the Locke fan-poster would be cool to have but it's sorta plain, if you ask me..."

maven said...

@Rob Perrin: Fabulous synopsis of the history of the LostArgs Poster! So glad I could play a part in it's journey. :) I had to sign a release for the interview with the ABC crew...so I hope my part with the poster doesn't end up on the cutting room floor! (Everything's digital now...no more cutting room floor. LOL)

I just think that everyone worked as a great team on the Poster, on the Reveals, on the Gallery1988 Line...greatest group of Lost Fans!

The Kharma Initiative said...

LT, good to hear you're feeling better. And I would say your camerwork was 2sec of still and an hour of awesome! I think they call it cinema verite. MEL?

Speaking of the Man In Black, has anyone else noted a certain father-and-insolent-son dynamic between the MIB and Jacob in the scene on the beach? It seems especially strong in the fan trailer we all saw a week or two ago: youtube. MEL?

So nice to see that Alice still does live here. :)

Anne, YES PLEASE, with the insider info!

@ObFuSc8, thanks for posting the photos. Trouble abounded, but great good work for getting the 17th to Tyson! Were you nervous? The best: Smile

Hey ARG peeps!

Sorry for being so brief, but work was crazy busy, then rushing to Clandestine Ind, Christmas stuff...

Talking to Jensen was fun! Lots f fun details, but may hold off on those for now.

ReverendMilo -- I made sure Jensen saw your website. The iPhone is good for that at least. Jensen also picked the fake URL WCM out of Xort's poster right away.

TKI -- I saw your comments in the previous post, but so sorry I hadn't had the time to say and thank you for the kind words. I'll email you as soon as I have a minute.

ObFuSc8 said...

Ugh, sorry for the multitude of typos.

Zort70 said...

ObFuSc8 - Fantastic pics, I love the one of Jensen holding the poster up.

Thanks for doing that, it was probably much better than him seeing it on the blog forthe first time.

Ben said...

hey Obf... about your spare Daniel Danger... wanna sell it to me? I'd trade but I got none, and it was my favourite of the bunch! Here's hoping... benmorseATgmail please if you do! I can chuck in some other art to send you...just not Lost related!

Zort70 said...

Right, the moment some have been waiting for.

The Final Poster Poll

NEW POST

mungonna said...

ObFu..Another Loop Completed!! Wow,yea, Jensen with 17th, Beauty!

Anne, i extend my apologies. Taking a 2 pic is always a good idea, and that time I failed. I am sorry. But whats this about inside info? I am intrigued. And, your pics of Hawaii,are really putting the pressure on me to decide.

TKI..I see the on going offspring/ parent relationships put forth in Lost as Great Metaphor. I mean,,if you are a Parent character in LOST,,you LOSE. Even what was perceived at first as the kind olde sweet Grand Mother,,Elsie,,turned out to be a fully objectionable character. What a witch...and Im being nice. So whats the point of all this parental abuse? Yes,, the need to give the heave ho to the status quo. Accept nothing from your parents as " You",who you Are. Each individual is unique, has their individual Potentials and Talents to explore. That message was loud and clear when " kind olde Grandma" Elsie closed the piano key board on Dan and told him he had Other directions to go. She killed him there as good as she put the bullet in him later. I did not like or trust her from the start. Way too into telling other people what to do.

So the MIB/Jacob exchange can be seen at an even higher or further level or circumference . Overthrowing the Dogma of Jacob ..matter of fact, All Dogma, for the Liberation of the Mind, for the Liberated exploration of the Imagination, where Who You Are awaits to be discovered, is the Metaphor of the repeated Motif of Parents and their BullCrap. I suppose,,the angle of father and son can be perceived between Jake and MIB, as "we" are said to be Gods Children. Perhaps all the different ways Jacob was portrayed , suggests how " we" can't even be uniform in what our " father" is.

Some open issues remain tho. Flocke( fake Locke or The Reborn Locke) is rather adamant in his Purpose. This development strikes fear in some viewers. He is seen as evil, or on the Dark Side. I await some loops to be closed that will demonstrate The Love of his new found Purpose. In a way, the Turning of Ben already demonstrates this. Just remember the kind of Love Kate demonstrated in saving Young Bens Life, with full knowledge of what Ben would do later in his life. Thats a Love thats out on the farther reaches of the mundane mind, but just at the welcoming threshold of the Imagination.

What gives Dennis!? I hope it's because I was asleep in the Slusho-Mobile that I didn't end up in this collage!

I am however, hidden in several of the photographs, but my face only appears in the background in one!

Can you find it?
