I'm not gonna watch any of the LU stuff till Tuesday, but I can't wait.

Scoutpost said...

I love it!!

Sayid'sgirl said...

zort
You can't make a new post when I'm in the middle of doing dishes. lol
I'll have to check this out in a bit. :)

Scoutpost said...

I should say...I just love the fact that LOST does these kind of extra features- how fun (not that I necessarily love wormholes).

ChrisL said...

Zort, do you not think that LA X thing from Paul could have been just to pull us in to this ARG though? Well pointed out none the less.

Zort70 said...

Wormholes are our friends :-)

Sayid'sgirl said...

What did just say! LOL

Sayid'sgirl said...

I love wormholes. Still hsven't watched the video. :)

Just Thinking said...

This in interesting - it shows how the classes will work with the options on the bottom to go to homework, test, etc.

Zort70 said...

The video clip is fairly basic Wormhole theory, nothing I haven't seen before.

Zort70 said...

Yes it is interesting as it gives a glimpse into how LU will work.

ChrisL said...

Zort, you are the voice of reason :-)

Scoutpost said...

Oh Zort, you're so smart! You won't need any of these classes to graduate! ;)

Amy Lynn said...

I think we're grasping at straws here re: the latin clues, etc. It was pretty obvious from the chat that Paul was referring to S6 and not the arg.

thorsten said...

I got in trouble in sixth grade for folding
two-dimensional spacetime under my desk ;(

ChrisL said...

Amy Lynn, reading it through again today it didn't seem so obvious to me... I'll read it again with freash eyes.

maven said...

Morning! I think I'm going to learn a lot at LU! At least they seem to be putting all this science in simple-ish terms!

Re Paul's use of the word "season": Maybe it's a reference to the Holiday Season? I think Darlton are very secretive about S6 (not allowing any footage in the promos), so even tho the title was released everything else is under wraps.

Lisa: Hope all goes well with Joey and, especially, your Ex!

Anyone else going on the 15th?

Just Thinking said...

Wanted to ask- will LU be set up as a tab for each class to discuss when it comes out?

ChrisL said...

or even fresh.

Zort70 said...

thorsten, careful not to bend time too much it might snap.

thorsten said...

[From the old thread]

@Brendan… I was just kidding ;))


@ChrisL… I was asked by some folks not to put names on it. We could use twitter handles, though…
Lets see how this works out after all the pix are in…

thorsten said...

Like a rubber band, Zort.
Ugly.

LotteryTicket said...

OK. How screwed am I if I 1) have no Blu-Ray player as of this date and 2) have no Blu_ray disc on order. I assuming that 12/8 date of DVD drop and I can get caught on LU at anytime in the future.

Couple of questions to the professor: Can you worm-hole through space and time to the future? If you moving in space AND time, to the past, when you turn around to come home will you be in the future? or remain stuck jumping around in your past forever. In other words, how in the world do you control space and time? With a button? With your mind?

No comments to my ignorance, please. Yes comments to Blu-ray stuff.

This class I will skip.

Just Thinking said...

There have to be clues to the URL-Paul said twice I think follow the clues. And the twitter feed does indicate that the Latin is a clue. It came at the wrong time to be an ARG clue though-we weren't looking at all for a 16th frame clue then. We were trying to see how Charlie and the new Character worked into S6 though.

So- I think there will be more ARG clues- but not this one.

And now I will be wrong again!:)

Amy Lynn said...

Zort, I found out I do need a flash drive (yikes!)... I really hope that the LU Blu-Ray has some instruction on how to make it live.

Scoutpost said...

I'm in the same boat LT...no blue ray player or DVD plans.

Zort70 said...

JT - I think if it was an essential ARG clue it would have been posted on the hub page, or at least a link to the interview page.

LT - you should be fine with LU at a later date, it may just be more difficult to win the signed diploma's that have been mentioned.

kmfdm11031 said...

Ok i've been reading through everything this morning. I think I MAY have found something interesting. On Damon's blog it was pointed out that more people should speak latin a few days later he said something about looking at the moons of Jupiter.

Well looking at that Linder gallery picture it shows the three solar system models. yada yada but I found that the one system that goes along with those models and involve the moons of Jupiter is the Copernican system.

Maybe that is the clue we missed.

I have to go get in line for my H1N1 shot but i'll do more research later.

thorsten said...

Lotto, we need to discuss stuff of this cosmic magnitude on the phone…

Capcom said...

Is folding space-time like folding in egg-whites? :-o

If I ever get a photo taken and in on time, I don't mind of my blog name is on, FWIW, for the to-name-or-not-to-poll.

ChrisL said...

So Zort, you think more clues will come on the hub?

thorsten said...

Damon did his moongazing at the Star Trek DVD lauch party, right kmfdm11031?

In Star Trek the Enterprise hides behind Saturn's moon, Titan.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Ok watched the video. Of course love it! I think time travel is the most fun and intriguing thing in LOST.

Now to catch up on the comments of you chatty people. :)

Avondale Blog said...

After re-reading Paul's comments from yesterday I tried looking up the following URLs (oh, why not?).. "alyetaliavident.com", "othersseeitotherwise.com" and "morepeopleshouldspeaklatin.com" - nothing. Although...what ABOUT the phrase "OTHERS see it otherwise" as a theme for season 6???

I still don't have a BluRay player, but hope to get one next week. I'm looking forward to Lost U!!

thorsten said...

http://wearethegoodguys.com/ is taken already. Darn.

Zort70 said...

Chris - I think that if Paul's words were meant to take us in a specific direction then, looking at the last 15 reveals, Tyson would have made some sort of clue / hint on the hub page to the Washington Post.

Unless they are getting lazy and expecting LostARGs to be the captain of the ship.

In which ase look out icebergs ahoy.

Zort70 said...

or even "In which case" !

Right I'll be adopting radio silence for a short time while the World Cup draw takes place.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Ok dumb qestion since I never looked at the "spoiled" urls. Does this mean they've all been used?

Zort70 said...

Sayid'sgirl, no there are two remaining that ahve not been used from the original list.

Zort70 said...

and before anyone asks, they are not live with a "Buy Now" :-)

thorsten said...

I guess my buddies bathroommonkey and jojobadass will figure this one out on the fly…

ChrisL said...

But this one was always going to be different no?Maybe they always intended to "Get Lazy" with this one and challenge us a little more... the 16th will be found... only if we're smart enough!

thorsten said...

It is like Tibbs said, Chris… somewhere out there a buy me button is blinking in the dark… like HALs eye on the Discovery…

ChrisL said...

Stop thorsten, you're making my heart pound! Driving home. catch up in a little while.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Ok thanks zort.

Zort70 said...

Has nayone seen this video with Michael John Gorman explaining about the Linder Gallery ?

Ben said...

having found the other two urls, they just redirect to the gomerch front page. I'll try them a couple of times each day to see if either kick in, but I'm betting on something altogether different...

LotteryTicket said...

egg whites, pirate talk and HAL, oh, my! thorsten, we don't need phones, I'll just fold on over to your place yesterday! Damn, miss ya. You must have been at the store. Oh, no. I folded back home to see that damn pile of dirty close I cleaned in the future now has to been done again. Will I never learn . . .time travel doesn't pay.

mistertibbs said...

Stop it Thorsten, I just had a palpitation!

thorsten said...

Let me see Lotto… right, I was shopping around 7 last night! Now I know why I felt this presence…

thorsten said...

haha, yeah, Tibbs, but you gave me Premature ventricular contractions earlier!

Amy Lynn said...

reAnimated, it's my impression that LU is all BD live.

Sayid'sgirl said...

zort
Yeah I've seen it. ObFuSc8 posted it after Amy posted her Spin video. Then someone I think Thorsten posted it last night. Pretty cool huh!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Yeah I know I spend too much time on the blog. :)

thorsten said...

no, Sayid'sgirl, you're fine ;))

Just Thinking said...

About the Latin. So Richard is the one who speaks it. How come? Two ideas-

Richard is a scientist and learned Latin as it was the language of science, as indicated by the Lindor room quote.

Richard was on the Black Rock in the 1800's and it got pushed back to a time on the island when the "Others" spoke Latin- he lived to carry it forward.

Oops - remembered other Others speak it too- so they could have learned it from Richard.

This would make Latin relevant to S6 in Richard's backstory.

Amy Lynn said...

*cannot wait for epic Richard centric episode*

thorsten said...

My thoughts about Latin and Egypt here…

Ἰακώβ

JPL said...

Afternoon All,

Getting a quick break and didn't know if this had any relevance. This was last post on Washington Post chat yesterday after they officially ended. Sorry if it's been brought up...

New Haven, CT: I'm probably too late, but have to say I agree that Jack will die. He has to. For our sins. Get it?

Paul Scheer: Alpert will also live. He's been here a dozens of times.

@Thorsten - have many of the photos submitted been with posters or Lost related... I'm thinking of resubmitting if so. Thanks!

Sam G said...

:0 email

thorsten said...

No, JPL. Don't worry, your picture is fine!

Zort70 said...

Note to self, must pay more attention to other comments.

So anyone ready for June the 12th next year then.

Agatha Craxie said...

I'm so excited for this Lost U stuff. I got my blu-ray player on Wednesday. I still need to pop in the SD card and configure BD-Live so I can be all set to go on Tuesday. I just really, really want one of those diplomas, especially since I haven't gotten a single one of the posters.

mistertibbs said...

I am Zort! Footballs coming home, by the looks of our group!

TomRex said...

I think we've already seen the final print. . .

Amy Lynn said...

@TomRex, care to elaborate?

TomRex said...

Hmmm. I think this is going to be a lot like the show and we will go back to the beginning.

I think there is a chance it could be the Black Rock print on the hub page. It was changed VERY early on in the project. I will have to post the original image tonight.

Amy Lynn said...

Maybe it's that Black Rock print with a little cartoon Pirate Alpert hanging off the side?

Patmc said...

@andalone & @Thorsten : I live in San Diego, and I'll be going to the Gallery too. I'll be happy to be your backup delivery boy if your friend with the printshop has any problems getting up there.

I floated the idea a few days ago, but figured it was worth mentioning again... For the people going to the Gallery, I would love for some way to identify my fellow ARGies. Maybe a custom button or sticker or something? Regardless... I can't wait to finally put some faces to the names of people here!

MeSoCrazy said...

And Jack's beard taped to it?

Again trying to be part of the team and failing. Hey, at least I'm consistent.

Amy Lynn said...

I am super jealous of anyone who lives near San Diego. When I win the lottery, I am moving into the Hotel del Coronado.

Amy Lynn said...

Um, yeah, that brunch is the best. I believe I spent 3 hours there.

Patmc said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Patmc said...

I've always enjoyed the Hotel Del. They have a killer brunch on Sundays, and the ocean view from their decks is beautiful.

San Diego is an awesome place, not to mention that it's very nice to not have to worry about finding and paying for a hotel room come Comic Con time. Though, if you enjoy a cold, snowy winter... you will be sadly disappointed. :-)

MeSoCrazy said...

When I win the lottery I am buying Matthew Fox and also moving with Amy Lynn. Because that sounds fun. Being rich and living it a nice warm fun place.

MeSoCrazy said...

@Patmc I now am convinced even more. Utah is brr. And I don't care for it.

thorsten said...

@MeSoCrazy…
did you check out the Linder Gallery?

Sundeep said...

I emailed Thomas Hannsz, the artist who painted the original Black Rock Storm (bought by Widmore at auction) and Jacob's Dog paintings used in the show, regarding the use of these two paintings in the SPiN video, and the possibility of his involvement in the Lost Art Show. This was his response:


"First of all yes, The Black Rock is very important to Lost, & the Final season.
I would guess my art was included in the SPiN video because they are as far as the theme of the show goes,
some of the most deeply rooted art works on the show Lost, or on any show ever made.
I would love to get involved with the art show, I will give them a call tomorrow.
Brilliant !"


It's a bit vague, but I thought someone should follow up on the other flashes in the SPiN video. I'll post again if Mr. Hannsz emails again.

BTW, I'm the one who asked Paul about what 'clues' we should be following, since all he kept saying regarding the 16th "piece" was "Follow the clues".

MeSoCrazy said...

@Thorsten shhh huddle down so no one else will hear, um, I, um, have not because well in my little world I sometimes miss the obvious (duh) and if say someone didn't know where exactly that was, which it is probably right here on the site, but hey I said huddle down, I overlooked it because I was so busy running on my hamster wheel. Okay now you can get up.

Wow, Lost. Yeah. Great show.

illix said...

Jeez, it's been like 140 comments since I last checked in. Yikes. Anyway, I'm now fairly convinced that the Tawaret statue coloring is a chess thing. I'd love to see what a professionally-designed Lost chess set would look like.

Here's a thought on the reveal - maybe the locations for the 16th will be all the locations for the 15th? As in, perhaps you decode some cluephrase or instruction from the hints, then go to the closest reveal location and present it in order to get swag like a statue? It'd be a nightmare to coordinate and many people would still be out in the cold, but it would be interesting.

I really do hope the URL isn't live ATM (been contemplating the possibility for a while) since there are enough tricks you can play with IPs and domain names that I don't know that it wouldn't just be found via one of those rather than as intended. ABC hasn't been very good at covering their tracks thus far.

They're watching us tie ourselves in knots right now, aren't they? You bastards! *shakes fist at sky*

Oh, well now, another thought - thus far we have, if the moons of Jupiter reference is part of it, references to four great astronomers - Ptolemy, Copernicus, Brahe, and Galileo. That's...uhm, that's really as far as I got. Dammit. Dammit, Darlton!

Anne said...

@PatMC - I'm happy to make up a design, I was thinking about that just a few minutes ago XD Of course run it by the community to see if it's what they want.

Will have to post any thoughts later, the dog needs to play. You do not say "no" to a border collie :P

LotteryTicket said...

patmc and all attending. as for what to wear for evening in LA? What about red as in "RED SHIRTS" in homage to those behind the scenes.

just a thought.

comixguru said...

morning all!

here is my name tag design for the Gallery 88 show.

let me know what you think.

http://twitpic.com/s4ucr

comixguru said...

i can print them on sticker paper. i was thinking of leaving the "Henry Gale" on there and then you can cross it out and write your real name or nickname. feel free to give me suggestions. i was also thinking of throwing on my own little dharma symbol on there with my cartoon cat in the middle. i'll post another link in a minute.

second design with dharma logo

http://twitpic.com/s4w4l

Patmc said...

@Comixguru LOL! I love the idea of leaving Benry's name on there! Perhaps you can just cross his name out for us. I think it would look cool with some sort of Dharma logo too. Any room to fit LostARG on there anywhere. I wouldn't want Zort to feel left out... ;-)

ReverendMilo said...

I tweeted that I want Charlie riding Jughead like Slim Pickins the other day, and I couldn't get it out of my head.

So I just did it real quick to be able to focus on my actual work. (forgive the "not Penny's Boat" missing - it's there, but you have to see the 18x24 print to read it.)

Prof. Strange Miles or: How I Learned to Stop Whining and Hug the Jughead

Patmc said...

I'll be away for a little while... gotta go run some errands.

@Comixguru - sorry... I was still typing when you posted your second design. I love it! I hope I can figure a way to put it on a blank label, but I'll definitely be wearing one! hahaha

thorsten said...

Yey! go for the second one, comixguru!

Lisa said...

ok, I'm here and finally caught up on all the posts. Joey is home and fine. I calmed down. They did a blood count which is fine for now too so all I have to do is wait and watch it so it doesn't get bigger. Nothing to worry about right now I guess -Whew !! He's outside playing and I'm calm now that I've read all what 300 posts ?? Geeze, no talking when I'm gone !! lol

comixguru said...

@Patmc - i'm going to print them on sticker paper and will have them to hand out at the event. :)

comixguru said...

@Rev nice! :)

Zort70 said...

Comixguru - love the badge design, I might even wear one for the evening in support.

Zort70 said...

Lisa that's great news.

Zort70 said...

Rev, all we need now is a fake reveal website to go with it...

oh wait I seem to recall somebody doing that before, I don't think anyone noticed though ;-)

MK said...

rofl rev can't believe you actually did it!

Just Thinking said...

Great idea the name tags. Maybe we can print our own at home and wear them in solidarity- those of us sighing at our computers.

Just Thinking said...

00ps- snap Zort

ChrisL said...

And I'm back too. Long drive and then home to find my internets had been stolen by bandwidth muggers. Back online now after jiggerypokery. Several things:

Lisa. Much relief for you. So pleased. Relaaaax now.

comixguru. I love your nametag design. Makes me want to be there so much more (if that's possible). I need one and shall wear it daily.

Rev. Charlie astride that JH is awesome!

Zort. LOL at the fake website crack. Still smiling actually.

Eugene said...

Lisa, I'm so glad to hear the good news.

Did anyone notice that Carlton changed his Twitter wallpaper to "Locke's Secret" and is using the picture of him with the polar bear from the painting? Maybe he'll drop a hint or two.

Dennis said...

YEA!

I just booked my flight to California, so I'll be there for the art exhibit on the 15th. What time is everyone going?

Amy Lynn said...

@Dennis, I think people are planning on getting online overnight on the 14th.

ReverendMilo said...

@Zort

;)

Just Thinking said...

Good travels Dennis. Maybe Locke's poster is Carlton's favorite.

Just Thinking said...

I'm excited by this idea of Latin science language speaking Richard coming to the island on the dynamite & slave carrying Black Rock for the purpose of blasting down to a mysterious energy source, and then the fun starts.

Another scientist coming to the island on another ship- they love to do things in 2's.

Zort70 said...

Good news Dennis, it sounds like it's going to be a great turnout,

HenryGaleWasHere said...

@comixguru- love the nametags, too bad I can't make it there, I would be all set!

@Rev- like the pic, still am a fan of the Charlie/Desmond/Looking Glass print though! :) That was great!

Dennis said...

comixguru...

I like your nametags. I don't want to steal your idea, but I think it would be great to have a LostARGs design so we know who all our peeps are.

A few thoughts on the design...

• The gallery name is "Gallery 1988", not Gallery 88
• G1988 has a round logo that looks cool in the middle of a Dharma bagua (See: http://img706.imageshack.us/img706/2424/g1988.png)
• Would want to put LostARGs.com in there somewhere

Martyn said...

Phew, just had a day skid course, was awesome and I didn't spin my car full 360 like most other people did. So finally caught up so really sorry for uber late replies.

@Comixguru...

Awesome Name Tags!

@Patmc...

Glad to see someone else calling Henry, Benry.

@Lisa...

Glad to see your son is ok and will post out your boarding pass tomorrow. Going to pack it up now in a secure way because the Royal Mail SUCK and will find a way to ruin it.

I also finally succumbed to seeing how much a flight to LA would cost me. Sadly, £790 so i'm going to be at home, staring at my lost posters, crying at the fact that I can't see them with their brothers and sisters.

I wonder if they'll display them in Frame Number order or Season Order???

@Zort...

I think it's a pretty nice group for us but Brazil, Portugal and Ivory Coast is this tournaments Group of Death.

ChrisL said...

Sounds like a fun day for you Martyn!

Martyn said...

Oh it was, except it was hard to stop skidding as I was going around the roundabouts.

Not a good idea!

Jimmy said...

Is anyone planning on continuing this after it ends with artists from these boards and whatnot? If so Im interested in contributing artowrk for it...Im just not sure if it was discussed and I missed it and who is coordinating it..
Thanks
Jimmy@jimmygoose.com

Ellen said...

email...
xxoo

comixguru said...

@Dennis -thanks for your suggestions

i've updated the design. please let me know your thoughts...

http://twitpic.com/s5h95

Just Thinking said...

Comix- that is terrific- will print it out at home for sure. I've got an ID holder from company events-maybe other people do too? Could use those so they can keep the badge rather than a sticker they will have to throw out.

Just Thinking said...

Jimmy- I think Justin on the boards is still putting together a fan art project. Anyone have his info?

Martyn said...

@Comix...

Love the new design

@Just Thinking...

I thought it was Dusty organising the fan art project? The twitter account i've got is for LOSTFanArt.

maven said...

OMG....people are lining up overnight on the 14th? I did that for Comic Con and I don't think these old bones can do that again! Especially in December in LA (which can get quite cold at night)! I will get there as early as I can...but not overnight! Saving places is probably not cool but maybe something can be worked out!

@Comixguru: Love the name badges! Can't wait to slap one one! The LostArg group has to have a way of meeting up! Some of us know each other, some don't!

Just Thinking said...

Maven- did she mean organizing online-as in emailing each other?

ChrisL said...

@Sayid'sgirl, I just realised I never replied to your Hatch lighting question from the last post! Sorry, can't offer advice on that as I missed out on The Hatch... I live in hope that I'll be finding the perfect lighting solution for it some day though.

comixguru said...

@Maven - I am bowing down to your LOST hardcore-ness... Wish i could say i camped out overnight for the last LOST panel! :) Looking forward to seeing you at the gallery! I will gladly save you a spot in line with me.

Just Thinking said...

Looked at the LOSTFanArt twitter address- older tweets not on it at the moment? Sorry- I wasn't sure who was heading it up- but I know there was a lot of interest.

maven said...

@Comixguru and others going to the Gallery: I think you should make up your own simple name tag with User/Real Name (whatever you want) and LostArgs.Com on it so we can ID each other until we get Comixguru's "official name tag"!

Martyn said...

The Hatch is a b***h to light properly. Still trying to figure out where is best to put it so I can see the awesome purpleness and definitive cogs.

@Just Thinking...

Yeah, I registered interest in it a while ago, dunno if i'd be any good but it could be fun to do!

Just Thinking said...

Or if you do have an ID holder- you can maybe print out your own copy of the ID and bring it?

ReverendMilo said...

Has anyone dropped the jughead here about the Funny Lost blooper reel with laughing Kate, big naked guy from the upcoming S5 DVD set?

andalone said...

..playing with my office supplies, and living in the fantasy world that allows me to believe I can actually attend LOST art exhibit....
my name is

ReverendMilo said...

Awwww, just noticed I got bumped from the top commenters..

Damn you IRS 1040NR deadline!!!!

Just out of curiosity, where are the out of towners staying for the G1988 event?

Zort70 said...

comixguru - Love the new design as well.

I'm really gonna miss the fun at this event, but hopefully you guys will do us proud reporting back.

See you all tomorrow.

Zort70 said...

You'd be amazed how many times the top commenters list changes because its only based on the last 500 comments.

ReverendMilo said...

LOL I know but for a long time it was a rare occasion.

Now which one of you was the naked guy?? Mel?

RobPerrin said...

Hey I made the top 10! Guess my lurking days are over.

Eugene said...

Love the name tag! Oh I so want to be there. Flights are around $200. Just low enough to tempt.

Naked guy was hilarious!

kiwilostie said...

Ive been waiting the whole time for a Black Rock print. Talk about a WCM! It wouldnt surprise me at all if its the 16th. I was convinced it would be the 15th.
So why is the Linder guy tweeting with Damon? It does seem like clues to me. And why is Thomas Hannsz dropping spoilers almost re the Black Rock and S6. I really think we are on the right lines here.
Thorsten - yes! Ive said it a few times re the website waiting for us already, buy now live, we just have to find it... the only thing with that is that Scheer said we all would have the same chance, so maybe its just 'on sale soon' for now.

Sayid'sgirl said...

ChrisL
Hey that's ok.
Sorry you didn't get the Hatch.
Like Martyn said it's a bite in the backside to light properly.

comixguru
Great job on the name tag. Hope everyone who's going has a great time.

maven
I read in the last post (I think) a couple of people say they were going to show up around 3pm.

organic_herbal said...

I haven't seen it, but surely i've missed it or it's so obvious that everyone has noticed...but just in case, the gallery ad on the hub has a red question mark in the center, just like frame 16's placeholder...to me that says it will be revealed at the given opening timeframe that's in the big font.

ObFuSc8 said...

Just finishing work and catching up one the comments...phew!

Thanks thorsten for giving Micheal John Gorman a call -- I sent him another email yesterday, as soon as the Paul Sheer interview was finished. Nothing back yet.

For those wondering about the "sequence" of those tweets as relates to the DCaaPB ARG, I would say part of the reason the events are consecutive is US, here at LOST ARGs.

I posted the links to The Linder Gallery Interior and Michael John's site here, at the ABC forum and an FB page AND emailed Michael John -- all on Nov 13th. The reply from Michael John came on Nov 14th, and he genuinely seemed to not know anything about this adn even asked for the link to my Lynn's video. His next reply came Nov 15th, a couple hours after that tweet he sent to Damon.

There are 2 Damon Lindeloffs on twitter -- @DamonLindelof(not verified, but who Cuse follows)and @TheRealDamon (verified) -- they may be one and the same, but if he's shooting s6, wouldn't he have Latin on his brain anyway?

Just Thinking said...

Yes- but Paul said that the way to get the "piece" will be the same-going to URL. And if folks have to go to the URL at the event, they may not be able to get the piece. Paul also said that being at the reveal would not prevent people from getting it. So, I don't know- I guess they could just delay putting up the buy now until the next day-but that doesn't feel right.

ObFuSc8 said...

Hmmm, what if we all tweet ALY ET ALIA VIDENT at Darlton, all at once...

Amy Lynn said...

@Ob, great idea. done.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Maybe Paul simply meant the gallery has wifi. Maybe everyone who goes to the gallery will be able to buy a print there from the gallery. Who knows.

LotteryTicket said...

done

maven said...

Done!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Ok that's the second time this week that's happened. I make a comment post it. It says it's posted but it doesn't show up and it's not in the comment box. Then I refresh and it shows up. hmmmm

CreedFeed said...

Hey anyone notice that if you go to the page to login to your account on DCAAPB it shows a big SOLD OUT graphic?

see - sold out?!?

ObFuSc8 said...

Creed -- yup, that's the nasty thing that's been glaring at us since the Frame 14 sell out.

kiwilostie said...

Thorsten, pic sent. Please use your photoshop skills to make me look like George Clooney. No? Well, how about Jack Black! Ha!

Orchid7 said...

Okay home from work and just finished catching up. Seems I missed something, what is this about a Latin reference?? Can someone clue me in on that :)

@KmFdm.. re:the three cosmographic systems in the Linder painting. I posted about this yesterday. The Tychonic System combines the benefits of both the Ptolemaic system and the Copernican System. This system has the Moon & Sun revoloving round the Earth and the other 5 planets revolve around the Sun. One of the planets is Juipter. What is interesting to me about this is remember last years ARG DWY. At Comic Con there was all these references to Juipter and it's moons. I think during one of the early wkly test didn't we get assigned to groups using planet names?? Just thought it an interesting tie in to the 3 systems. Also the man whom publised the Tychonic System model died at 54 which are the two numbers which have stood out in the prints.

This may be nothing but it's a very interesting coincidence.

Also I'm sooooo envious of all those whom get to go along to Gallery 1988, how amazing is that gone to be :)

@Maven & @Sayid'sgirl - I should be there around 3pm, depending on traffic on the way up from San Diego.

As far as a meetup... I have always wanted to eat at Pink's Hotdogs, and since it is right around the corner from the Gallery, I'm probably going to grab a late lunch there. From the satellite view on Google Maps, it looks like there are a bunch of tables behind Pink's... so it might be a good place for a meetup. They have some pretty wild hotdogs, and also have burgers. Here's their menu:

Anyone else who is going, interested in an afternoon snack and meetup (and possible movie star sighting) at Pink's before heading over the the Gallery? :-)

ChrisL said...

Morning. Who can tell me what will happen with the LU on the Blu-Ray come the 8th? At the moment when you select LU it simply says coming on the 8th. I've never used BD Live, how will it work?

Zort70 said...

Chris, I think it is fairly unknown for all of us.

I assume it will connect up and allow us log log in to the LU website to provide the content and keep a record of how we do.

ChrisL said...

That's what I expected Zort, I just don't get how the actual screen we see, which offers no log-in opportunity or connection opportunity right now can change on it's own on the 8th. I assume there will be some surreptitious connection to the interweb.

ChrisL said...

I'm probably behind with this but has everyone seen this? Too funny.

ABC House Promo

Martyn said...

BD live connects to the Internet and updates the disc, bit like a game update. First used it last year with iron man, there was a quiz on it and it logged your score and had a leaderboard on it. So need to make sure your blu-ray is hooked up to the net.

Also, just saw a load of leia bell prints about polar bears. Why the hell did she go for the love triangle?

This whole linder gallery has me in a brain freeze. I'm pretty sure it's a hell of a lot easier than that. They have to take in to consideration the average idiot LOST viewer. Like me.

Lisa said...

@ Martyn so if this Blue Ray BD connects to your internet, does it do it wifi or do you have to connect it with your DSL Cable ? sounds like a PITA lol

ChrisL said...

Martyn, I guessed that was the deal but just wondered how the disc knows it needs to connect on the 8th. I was having a dumb moment though, the ps3 will recognize the disc has BD live content and connect every time it's inserted to check for updated content I assume.

Morning Lisa, my ps3 connects via wi-fi and I assume many BR players do to. I don't think it's as complicated as it sounds. Martyn can probably tell you more by the sound of it.

thorsten said...

About the 1988 poster project…
I have pictures now pretty much from everyone in the core… We still need somebody to print the file and carry it to LA. Because I need to talk to the print person about size and resolution before I put the thing together in Photoshop. No biggie, but needed to be adressed. Thanks!

;))

Lisa said...

Hey Chris, I hope it's as easy as you say. I'm not normally such a dumb blond but I seem to be having a bunch of it this month. My brain is a jumbled mess it seems. lol I doubt I will get the BlueRay this month, I even tried to talk my son into needing the PS3 lol He wouldn't go for it, he wants a Wii. I kept telling him the PS# was so much better lol Oh well, maybe for my birthday which is a week after Christmas lol

mistertibbs said...

So is the Lost Blueray that's already out in the uk the same as the one coming out in the us next week? I already bought the dvd, but I might check down my local blockbuster to see if they have it and borrow it for the week and join in the LU fun!

TomRex said...

Here is the copy of the Black Rock that was originally posted on the hub.

http://picasaweb.google.com/treasor/DamonCarltonAPolarBearAndTom#5411733177157955618

Does anybody see anything extra in there?

ChrisL said...

@thorsten, I don't want to add to the complexity but if whoever steps up in LA could get this printed on canvas, and if we wanted it to be a more perminant item, then I'd be happy to cover the costs involved. I can send a dollar check to whoever it is that steps up. Just a thought.

Just Thinking said...

I had a thought upon waking today (always the way) that the Oceanic Symbol included in the Spin stills looks like a sun surrounded by planets- like the drawing in the Lindor painting. Maybe the airline symbol was there to point us to the drawing and the Latin saying? Tried to get URL of drawing close up-http://www.mysteriousmasterpiece.com/

Ben said...

Paul: There's a big clue in this season.

He unveiled the title of the first ep of this season as LA X.

So has anyone been to LAX? Are there ping pong tables at LAX? it's a reach, but frankly at this point, what isn't?

andalone said...

@TomRex I see something in the middle of the painting, but can't figure out what it is. What's your opinion?

Sayid'sgirl said...

Good Morning all

Orchid7
The Latin phrase comes from The Linder painting. It's written at the bottom of the page with the three cosmographic systems.

ALY ET ALIA VIDENT – Others see it yet otherwise.

Oops forgot to say I'll be sending you a picture later today Thorsten.
Is deadline Sunday your time or my time?
I'm eastern.

Just Thinking said...

Thorsten- I have an idea for a picture for the poster, but need a little bit to send it if you can save me a spot. Still have time? Thanks.

Ben said...

as for the black rock photo - they probably just replaced it because of the huge flash glare it got when shot straight on. A pretty screengrab looks nicer. I'm not reading anything into the switch, but I DO think the last print is the black rock.

Just Thinking said...

You can zoom in on # 65 to see the drawing on he painting with the Latin phrase:http://www.mysteriousmasterpiece.com/

Just Thinking said...

Maybe we are meant to take that phrase just as it says- the Others have a different view of how the universe is ordered that what we commonly believe.

Martyn said...

@ChrisL...

Yeah, it's essentially a web page link on the disc so come the 8th, who ever is running it, switches it on for all to use.

@Lisa...

The PS3 uses wifi but it all depends on the blu-ray player you buy. I think some of the cheaper ones don't have wifi access or bd live capability. All will need the Internet to allow for updates to the OS of the machine but the ones without, I think you can download the updates and plug in a USB stick. But you do need Internet. Just buy a ps3, the old version(aka the best) because it's should be a lot cheaper now the slim has been released.

JPL said...

Morning All -

I'm pretty much convinced that there is a "live" url out there & that given what Paul had to say (or didn't say) during the WP chat that we have most if not all the clues to find that url. Reading through the last days of comments & sleuthing... I'm completely stumped. Information overload!

No news on the arrival of a letter to the 1st purchaser of the Polar Bear print... anyone else find that strange? Is this one piece we're missing?

@all that are able to go 15th... we'll be there with you. Have fun!

@comixguru - love the name tags. Sweet!

@Rev - when does the Charlie/Jughead print go on sale?

TomRex said...

I know you guys probably think I'm crazy, but I could possibly see a Taweret representation. It was the reason I had saved it. It just turns out they changed it soon thereafter. I know that they fix mistakes, but they are also very deliberate with their actions.

ReverendMilo said...

Charlie/jughead is on hold pending Paul Scheer responding to me if he can do it in velvet.

Now I am working on "Miles fondling his rocket" IMHO a much under appreciated WCM.

Woke up, decided to piss off the other partners in my firm and by tickets to fly out to G1988. We have 6,800 more returns to file before the 15th, maybe this will get them moving..

:)

RobPerrin said...

Here are a few ideas that have been bouncing around in my head for our poster:

a) Print off one copy on good quality thick paper (similar to DCAAPB posters) or canvas and a fair size, say 18x24. This can be brought to G88 on the 15th. Perhaps we can even convince G88 to hang it in the gallery during the show! Or alternately present it to Paul or one of the TPTB (maybe the person responsible for running DCAAPB).
b) Print off a few smaller copies of the poster on 8x10ish photo or thick paper. Show or give these out on the 15th to any G88 or Lost folks who may be interested in them.
c) Zort-willing, publish the poster on LostARGs.com.
d) Make a high-res JPG of the poster available to those of us who want it. (not sure if this can be combined with c)

Some of these are stretch goals, but it never hurts to aim high. Some logistics left as well, but I know a few people are working on this behind-the-scenes.

I also am willing to help pay for any costs incurred.

andalone said...

I am also willing to assist in paying for printing costs to make this happen.

ReverendMilo said...

I'll try to use my big printer to do one to carry out with me too.

Thorsten you know how to find me. I'll get you my pick after I get little one down for naptime.

thorsten said...

Sounds good, I am sure we will come up with a satisfying solution, and there is time enough left.

Eugene said...

Me too as far as helping out with the cost. Thorsten, I will send pic in a couple of hours. (darn working on a Saturday)

LotteryTicket said...

I'll help pay for banner.
tomrex, i see 4-toes also tucked in under DV and covered by G Right?

JPL said...

Since I'm an extra $61.10 richer this week with no poster to purchase (yet)... I'm more than happy to help pitch in to help pay for banner/poster.

ChrisL said...

Sounds as though there are a few plans now on the print... but to throw into the mix;

digitalroom.com produce stretched canvas prints, ordered online, any of us can upload the image for a 24 x 18 canvas and pay online. I'm waiting to hear from them whether our LA Losties can then pick it up in person. They're at 10936 Santa Monica Blvd.

thorsten said...

Awesome, so we will go for 18x24 in any case!

mrtibbs said...

JPL, that is my fear also

ChrisL said...

@thorsten, 24 x 18 would be very cool.

mrtibbs said...

It'd be nice to do the poster in the style of the being john malkovich poster, with pauls head placed in somewhere, but that'd take you ages thorsten! Photoshop path hell!

Eugene said...

Damon tweeted "Friday night. 43 acts to go." Does that mean anything? (scurries back to work)
