Leia Bell Talks 134

One of our regular contributors theotherben has sent us this interview that he conducted with Leia Bell.

A big thanks go to theotherben and Leia Bell for their time and effort doing this for us.


Lost Art

Mr. Jensen Karp has now been revealed to us at the master-mind behind DCaaPB. Was he the person that contacted you regarding The Lost Underground Art Project? Have you previously shown your art at Gallery 1988 LA? We are told that this project was two years in the making. How much advance notice/working time did you have?
Yes, Jensen is who called me to join in this project. At first I dismissed it, because my employee wrote down the message in away that it sounded like a solicitation for television installation, but luckily he called again! I hadn't shown my work at Gallery 1988 before, but I will be in an upcoming "Sports"-themed show there very soon. Jensen contacted me in early spring of 2009, but the project had been underway quite awhile already by then I think. I finished my piece by the end of summer 2009.

Did you choose the "water-cooler" moment or was it assigned? And if you had the chance to create another print in this series what moment would you have chosen?
My moment was assigned, as the other moments had already been chosen, but I was happy with the moment I got. If I could do another moment, I'd probably choose something with the Swan station, or the bunnies.

Some artist had alternative names for their prints. Did you personally title your print or was that a given?
My original title was "Jack's Revelation"

Were you familiar with LOST and this particular moment in the show? And did you re-watch episodes for inspiration?
Oh yes, I remember feeling Jack's pain when he saw Kate and Sawyer together, I felt terrible for him! I did re-watch the episode though, which was mid-way through season 3, the episode "I Do".

There is some question about the choice of images in monitor 2. From what we know in LOST Jack did not see the moment which you depicted in monitor No. 2, but Ben did. Sorry, LOST fans are a bit fussy about details. Is there a reason, or just artistic license to communicate Ben's manipulation of Jack?
I totally get that criticism, but yeah, it was artistic license and for dramatic effect. We as the audience know what was going on, and I'm sure Jack could only imagine-- and the point was to portray the emotion of the moment without seeing Jack's face.

Were you restricted/instructed in anyway. Like "We want this to feature the number 4 of the fourth monitor in a darker color then the rest of the numbers" or anything else like that. We have discovered since the end of the campaign that certain clues were to be found in the posters. Was yours one of these?
My only restriction was to illustrate that particular moment of the show.

Are there sketches or preliminary drawings that we might see?
naaahh...not really

How do you feel about having your work be at the center of people's lives for (at least) a week? What did it feel like to watch the reveal and your print drop? Did Jensen let you know just before your print was revealed, so you could witness the reveal?
I wasn't told that the print was up on the site-- a friend of mine informed me on Facebook. It was cool to be a part of the whole experience alongside so many artists I admire.

Art

What is your favorite theme or color motif that you like to use in your art?
Animals, or more specifically BIRDS are my favorite subjects to draw. I normally use a lot of color in my work, but I like to muddy up the colors a bit-- no neon!

Do you pull your own screens or use outside source?
99% of my work is hand-pulled by me in my little home studio. The LOST series was printed by the incredible dudes at D&L. They have printed a few of my other prints, and I totally trust their work. I'd have them print all of my stuff if I weren't such a control freak. I also just LOVE the whole process of printing from start to finish, and when I print my own work, I can change my mind halfway through (change colors, or add/take out colors) if I feel like it.


Has the LOST DCaaPB experience opened any doors, career wise, that weren't open to you before?
Not that I've noticed (yet anyway). I generally stay very busy with design work, commissions, plus I run a gallery/frame shop and have three kids under 8 years old... I'm not sure how I would handle MORE work.

For those who are just getting into collecting art prints, what advice would you give to them regarding storage and upkeep that you wish you knew when you started?
This probably goes against what many other collectors do, but I have gotten rid of all of my flat files-- they drive my crazy! I can never find anything in them, and prints get damaged easily. Instead, I keep my prints and my personal collection of other art, upright in specially designed bins my husband built. Prints are divided by sheets of acid-free foam core. At my gallery we mount each print on foam core using clear mounting corners (the prints slide in and out of those easily), then we put them in clear sleeves. Again they are displayed in the cool hand-built 'poster bins'.

Out of your catalog of art, what is the one piece of art that you are the most proud of?
That's a tough one, but I still love my poster for the Pixies. They were my all-time favorite band, and getting to design a poster for their 2004 reunion tour was a huge dream fulfilled for me.

How did you get into print making?
I learned the basics of screenprinting in high school, and spent a lot of time printing t-shirts for friends' bands in my parents' driveway. I majored in Printmaking in college- starting at the University of TN, then finishing my degree at the University of Utah. After graduating, I started making screenprinted posters for shows at the music venue my boyfriend Phil owned in Salt Lake called Kilby Court. We lived across the street from the venue and my studio was there too. This was around 2001. We stayed there until 2008 (adding three awesome boys to our family in the process), and then sold the venue and opened up a poster gallery and custom frame shop called Signed & Numbered. That's what I'm doing now.


LOST Questions

Are you a LOST fan? If so, how do you like to watch the show?
1) Lockdown -- no interruptions.
2) With a few select LOST fans.
3) With a bunch of people.
4) It doesn't matter.
5) I don't really watch...

1)- I watch an entire season in a few sittings when it comes out on DVD, and after my kids have gone to bed.

Favorite LOST character(s)?
Hurley is my favorite character. I also like Miles... and Hurley and Miles together-- I could hang out with them.

Any favorite LOST quotes?
Basically anything Hurley says is golden.

If you could turn a frozen donkey wheel and end up anywhere/anytime, where/when would it be?
I suppose anywhere in the future would be cool, as long as I could get back.

Who do you identify with most -- the LOST bunnies, the polar bear or Vincent?
Probably Vincent- he's happy-go-lucky

Do you follow any LOST blogs or post at any LOST forums?
I don't-- and this is only because I don't watch the show in real-time. With three kids I never have a chance to watch TV while they're awake, (and I don't have a DVR), so I wait until the season comes out on DVD. I have to stop people talking about the show and stick my fingers in my ears a lot. It's painful waiting, but awesome to watch an entire season in a few days.

How do you think LOST will end?
oooh, I don't want to speculate... I am just along for the ride.

What is the one mystery from LOST that you are dying to find out? Would you be content with never finding out the answer to that particular mystery?
The numbers... I think I'd live with not knowing though

What is your favorite moment of LOST?
Not a particular moment, but I have always loved anything to do with time travel... I eat that up, it's fascinating.

good morning ya'll!
first...:D

ChrisL said...

Hi Ellen!

theotherben, excellent interview. Thanks for taking the time to do this.

We've had a fantastic collection of interviews now and together with the Brilliant Jensen interview they give us a great insight into how this whole process went down. It's great to have the back story to the prints we worked so hard to obtain. Thanks to everyone involved.

On a different note entirely...

@Team Jack, if you're out there could you email me please, chris dot leaning at gmail. Thanks.

Zort70 said...

Hi Ellen, Chris.

I'm still blown away at how much support this whole project is still getting from everyone.

Ellen said...

Hi Chris, Zort! I am not at all surprised...this is the most excellent blog ya know!
xxoo

ChrisL said...

Zort, Ellen is right. It's not only that this ARG was really quite spectacular, extraordinary in it's conception and brilliantly played out, it's that the unique nature of it has been reflected so wonderfully in the beast that has been Lostargs. Your calm deliberation throughout the madness has made it a great pleasure and in return you've drawn in some of the finest people I've ever had the pleasure to pass time with. I shall be boring people with tales of the ideal online community for years to come!

Zort70 said...

I suppose I'm still a little in awe of all the people that have come and participated. I certainly didn't ever envisage what would happen.

I'm still having withdrawal symptoms from the constant checking of websites to see if anything has changed !

Martyn said...

Awww, group lostargs hug!

This site has become a second family for me, as it's a group of people who understand my obsession for lost, as they have it too. I mean, look how much we spent on what is, essentially, a piece of paper with a drawing on. When this first started I scoffed at the $50, which cost me lockes secret and the crash, but come dharma van, I was sold and have spent sooooooo much money on these, just like evryone.

So yeah, without this site I'd be better off for money but the friends made on here are worth more than I spent.

Thank you Zort!

andalone said...

theotherben - Wonderful interview! Thank you so much.

andalone said...

Zort - I'm in withdrawals too, and in total agreement with Ellen, ChrisL and Martyn that LostArgs has been a wonderful place to gather. Thank you!

LotteryTicket said...

Yeah! theotherben! job well done. :))

and thank you Ms. Bell for sharing a little bit more about Jack's revelation in The Love Triangle and your personal journey as an artist and mother! Three boys under 8 - Yikes. <3

A hearty second to comments above. I'll will FOREVER see in my prints everyone here and the great moments we shared.

Sam G said...

Morning all!

ioioos said...

Hi all.

Thanks for the interesting interview with Leia.

She seems to be so busy. I think the framing side of her family business is very interesting. They pick very odd frames, but they work!

I got to see some of her paintings in the flesh at the Richard Goddard Gallery in Manchester in December ( I attended the Jay Ryan signing session there) and I was surprised how small yet detailed she made them. I was very tempted to buy an original.

Amy Lynn said...

Interesting interview, thanks... and gives me new appreciation for my mom... she had three kids under 6. :)

Martyn said...

@ioioos...

Thanks to your amazing interview help, I got a conditional offer for my university! Just got to sort one reference out that seems to of got lost in the post. Sad thing is, his gone for an operation today and won't be back for two weeks.

But still awesome!

maven said...

Excellent interview, theotherben!

And I'm awed by how this experience with the posters played out and what a great community LostArgs became and will continue to be!

Just Thinking said...

Good for you Martyn!

Thanks- theotherben. (Hmm- if you cont the Ben on the show-maybe you are the other other ben.

ChrisL said...

Congrats Martyn!

Amy Lynn said...

Congrats, Martyn.

On a personal note, if anyone is the praying/good thoughts type, my father in law just had a stroke this morning, we are unsure of his condition at this time... we just lost my mother in law about six months ago, and could use any good vibes y'all have.

Martyn said...

Thanks everyone, another credit to this forum that people are willing to help other people out in their non-lost lives.

Sorry to hear about your father-in-law Amy, hope he gets better asap, sending all good thoughts on their way!

roxanna said...

Sending prayers your way, Amy.

Sending a congrats to Martyn.

And a thanks to LostARGs :)

Just Thinking said...

Hey Any Lynn- sorry to hear your father-in-law had the stroke. I wish the best to you all.

We are in the same boat at the moment- my father in law is in the hospital and it looks pretty grave. He always been a big influence on the family and the kids, so we deal the best we can.

Sam G said...

Sending good thoughts and prayers out into the universe.

ChrisL said...

Good and positive thoughts to you Amy and to you and your family JT.

RobPerrin said...

theotherben - great job on the interview, thanks!

Positive energy emitter engaged.

Martyn said...

ooops, sorry, great interview otherben, it's very interesting to hear/read each artists different view on how they were approached. Makes me wonder if other artists were involved before any late comers.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Thanks for the great interview theotherben.
With each successive ARG this blog has brought more and more wonderful people to it.
Amy Lynn
Very sorry to hear about your father In law. Good thoughts to him and your family. Hope all works out ok.

theotherben said...

Amy Lynn,
Very sorry about your father in law. Hope he's doing much better!

And thanks for all the comments! Leia said she loved doing the interview.

maven said...

Sorry about your father-in-law, Amy Lynn...good thought to you and your family. And to you, too, JT!

Congrats, Martyn! Hope everything works out smoothly! I'll pass your good news along to Marty!

ioioos said...

@Martyn

Glad I could help, but only one person did it. You! Contgrats!

Zort70 said...

It's a bad time for LOSTARGs relatives I'm afraid.

Just got back from the hospital as Mrs Zort has been admitted with suspected pancreatitis.

She is on fluids now and going to have more tests in the morning.

Zort70 said...

Positive thoughts and good wishes to all that have someone in their life that needs them.

Eugene said...

We seem to deifnitely be a bad time for some of us all here. Just got back from the hospital, too. My daughter's best friend is so frail. So I'm sending get well/stay well wishes to Mrs Zort and Amy Lynn's father in law.

Also congrats to Martyn!

And thanks to theotherben and Leia Bell for another interview. It's been very interesting to read these.

maven said...

Good thoughts for Mrs. Zort, too!

JPL said...

Thoughts and prayers for all tonight.

Kelly said...

Every good thought I have being out to Amy Lynn's family, Mrs. Zort , Just Thinking and the others who need good vibes!! Keep us posted.

Just Thinking said...

Thank you everyone- Jan & Feb are hard health months I guess. My good thoughts to Mrs. Z and Eugene's family friend. There have been studies that says group good will really works!

Mr. H (my father-in-law) was telling stories and more lively yesterday- had some new medicine that is sort of a last resort but may help.

ObFuSc8 said...

I second that ARGpeeps group hug Martyn.

Congrats on the Uni offer.

Great job on the interview with Leia Bell theotherben. Nice to see a few of my questions used somewhere.

Zort, sorry to hear about Mrs. Zort. Good thoughts your way, hopefully this will just turn out to be gallbladder related.

Good vibes to JT, Amy Lynn's families and Eugene's daughter's friend.

Island healing to all!

ObFuSc8 said...

Ian Leino (MAAAALT t-shirt) is selling pint glasses with the MAAAALT/DHARMA beer etchings.

Polar Beer Pint Glasses

Sayid'sgirl said...

More good thoughts to everyone in need. Hope all is well for everyone soon.

Martyn said...

Hi obfusc8! :)

Seriously doubling up the good thoughts for every lostarg member for any relative that is ill at present. Hopefully all will be back on their feet sharpish!

Love those pint glasses, I'm going to have to buy them and a polar beer tee for Eleanor. She was amazed by the wealth of Lost t-shirts there were in Hawaii and decided she wanted a polar beer one.

I think she's slowly converting to one of us, I'm giving her my Walt's Kidnapping tomorrow and she wants a polar beer tee. Yup, all the symptoms of a lostarger.

Zort70 said...

Thanks for all the good thoughts.

I forgot to congratulate Martyn last night, so well done !

A couple of beer glasses have been ordered so I can sit in my tshirt with a matching glass.

Patmc said...

Sorry I've been absent for so long. Just wanted to send out all my best "Island Healing" thoughts and prayers to all the folks here with relatives having health issues (JT, Amy Lynn, Zort, and anyone else I may have missed)! Hopefully with all the good will of all the fantastic folks here... everyone will be back to the best of health soon.

@Martyn - Congrats on your University bid! My college years were some of my fondest memories (including my very first sky dive!). All the best to you as your adventure begins!

@ChrisL - Thanks for everything!

Off to bed, and back to work tomorrow... ugh.

Happy LOST Day to all the US Argies...! :-)

ChrisL said...

@Pat, my pleasure!

Morning Argers.

Still looking for TeamJack to drop me a mail at the address earlier in the thread if you're around. Ta

Ray said...

I hope all the health issues with Lost ARGers and their families get resolved soon!

throwfar said...

It starting to think that DD has sold all his prints. I thought he was supposed to release info in a day or two 2 weeks ago!

ChrisL said...

throwfar, He's been saying that he's ill and so that's prevented him from doing much of anything. We'll see. I'm still intrigued as to where the other 22 Crashes went.

Martyn said...

Happy pancake lost day to everyone!!!

Ray said...

@Chris L

I'll bet some artists had personal plans for some of their prints - maybe Eric gave a bunch to his family and close friends, for novelty's sake. He made have also held onto a few for future contests, charities or exhibitions. If I were an artist involved in this I definitely would have held onto a bunch of them to give away.

Also, I walked by a comic book store in Boston yesterday and got my hands on a couple of the Lost Kubricks! They were blind boxed and I ended up with Kate and Sayid. Does anyone know if they still produce these or if there is a place to purchase them online?

ChrisL said...

Ray, I agree on Eric but 22 is quite a lot.

Some of the Kubricks are on amazon US and UK and of course ebay.

Anne said...

@theotherben great work on the interview :)

@Martyn congratulations! Was LU a factor? ;)

@Zort, Amy Lynn, JT, best wishes for you and your family members.

@Ray you found still blind-boxed Kubricks? Whoa. Bet I know the store you found them in too ;) I really want some of those, but I've only found Kate and Jack and at a markup (lol).

Martyn said...

@Anne...

In some respects, yes :)

Ray said...

@Anne

I forget the name, but it was the one in Quincy Market. They had a whole section filled with random kubricks and the like, and something compelled me to take a closer look. Sure enough, I found two buried in the pile - still blind. It was a lucky find!

Anne said...

Oh yeah I didn't second the LostARGs love. If it had a fanclub, I would join it; if it had a t-shirt, I would wear it. :3

@Martyn Awesome! ;)

@Ray yep that's the one! Great comics/toy shop, found awesome stuff there on vacation once. Wish I lived in Boston! (Doubt my uncle would know what I was up to if I sent him)

BTW Locke's Secret tee shirt drawing will be tonight! Roughly 7PM CST so you can still enter if you like.

Ellen said...

Finally got caught up on the 2000+ emails in my inbox and finished my first blogpost this new season! Wow, just in time too! It's so good to be here, and I will be a bit more regular at commenting from now on. I'll see all of you after the show tonight over at TLC, come join us!
xxoo

XXXHardcore said...

@Anne Enter me for that Medium Locke's Secret shirt, please?

@Everyone
There are still a "few" Tyler Stout's LOST left for purchase tomorrow at 2 PM CST on postersandtoys.com . However, Mitch warned that they might be very pricey!

XXXHardcore said...

Oh!

P.S.--For the spoiler avoiders out there (I've been on my best behavior to try and remain relatively spoilfree myself this season!), Canada is receiving the LOST broadcasts 2 hours earlier this week and next week due to the Olympics, meanings information can be available as early as 7 PM EST. Watch out and be wary!

Jeffrey said...

Anne, I would love to enter the drawing for the shirt as well! Thanks a million!

Ray said...

@Anne

How do I enter for the contest? Can I please be entered for a medium locke's secret?

Anne said...

@XXXHardcore wrote you down. Though I almost put the name of a manga :P XXXHardcore, xxxHoLiC . . . lol.

I imagine Stout wants to get a bit of the action his print has been having on the secondary market, quite understandably. Those willing to pay a higher price may actually get a deal getting it from him.

@Jeffrey wrote you down.
@Ray Some people have been emailing me, but posting here is fine too :) Wrote you down.

It's not TECHNICALLY a contest as I'm not giving the shirt away. But it's retail price. Thought it would be better to choose a person at random than throw everyone into the snake pit on eBay. If the winner decides they don't want it, I'll draw again.

CallieJo25 said...

@Anne, I'd love to be entered for a tee! Happy with any size, but a medium if possible. Thank you so much!

DarkUFO has an IRC channel for the Canadian airing if anyone wants to watch the stream. I can't bring myself to do it... Lost is the only show I watch live anymore, and I want it to stay that way.

chaseter said...

There are less than 10 Stouts for sale tomorrow so that is going to be crazy.

Kelly said...

Anne - I'd love to be entered as well. Thanks!

Happy viewing tonight/tomorrow/later in the week!

Anne said...

Okay, I just used a List Randomizer (nice one tho) to pick a name, that way if #1 declines I go down the list. I'm going to post the list so you guys know.

Timestamp: 2010-02-17 01:20:29 UTC

SO I am off to contact Martyn! And yes, I have gotten him a shirt before - I SWEAR Scout's Honor I would never rig a contest. I hear it's going to his newly-converted GF if he wants it ;)

I truly wish I had gotten one for each of you, the things we don't think of ahead of time. (Of course we had no idea they would be selling anything at the show besides art.)

Jeffrey said...

Thanks for even doing this Anne!

iooios...you said that was a gift and now you are pimping it off for cash???

Ray said...

@Anne

Thanks for entering me anyway!

@Chaseter

Is there a place on postersandtoys where there is a link for the print? Or did you hear there are 10 from a newsletter?

benkort said...

@Anne - Really appreciate the opportunity. Thanks!

Martyn said...

Thank you Anne! :D

Yes, it is for my gf. The days of me fitting Mediums are long gone. Except for the odd one or too that make no sense what so ever but still.

@ioioos...

Nice poster, I bidded, maybe because it's 5 in the morning and i'm not thinking straight but I like it.

chaseter said...

@Ray, Tyler told me that less than 10 were available and Mitch said they will be around 300ish if he doesn't change his mind. So it is going to be crazy tomorrow on there:(

bygnerd said...

I just had my Haiti donation returned from Paypal. What's doing with contest 9?

Sam G said...

:( Paypal returned the money I donated to the Haiti relief fund.

Dennis said...

Unfortunately, Paypal has begun canceling everyone's donations.

We will have an official announcement very soon about the status of the donations and the contest.

rtfarr1 said...

Paypal just returned mine too...
What the frak is this all about?

Martyn said...

uh oh, Doesn't sound good.

ioioos said...

@Chaseter

Yep. My aunt was always getting stuff like this (from a variety of shows) over the years. She always said I should sell them all, but the Stargate, 6 feet under and Lost ones were keepers for me.

Now they are making room for more art prints.

The only things remaining on the study wall are my lost prints, my original Ralph McQuarrie print and my Prince gold disc!

ChrisL said...

ioioos. Talk to me when it's time for the Prince disc to go ;-)

Jason said...

@ ioioos - You lucky bum! Six Feet Under is such a brilliant show. Its probably my 3rd fave, followed by 24 and Lost

Jason said...

Patmc said...

Very bad news about the Haiti donations getting refunded. I can always just turn around and send it to the Red Cross I suppose... but it would have been nice for us to drop a fairly substantial donation to a single organization as a group... (sigh).

Up WAY to late! Talk to you all tomorrow...!

ioioos said...

@ChrisL

My Sign O The times gold disc will be coming with me to the grave!

Ray said...

Hmm, my Haiti donation was not refunded (yet)...

ChrisL said...

Let's not try second guessing what's going on with the donation refunds. As Dennis said, They'll let us know what's going on as soon as they can.

@ioioos, don't blame you at all!

Is anyone trying for the Stout today?

Martyn said...

I would but not for the $300.

Just as I thought, got charged for customs with either Dan McCarthy or Lauren Gregg.

Nuts!

But my WWJLD? teefury tee has arrived, so going to make food, throw that on and watch lost. :D

ChrisL said...

Anyone in LA that likes Tarantino and has $300 to spare might want to get down to the Upper Playground gallery at 6pm.

INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS The Lost Art of the Film

ChrisL said...

Martyn, I just got hit this morning with a bill from FedEx for £6 VAT and a £10 process charge for the Dharma party kit and the Faraday Bobble Head from 4 weeks ago! I didn't get a charge on the Lauren Gregg though so I suspect it's the McCarthy. It's way harsh.

Enjoy the Ep!

Patmc said...

I'll probably try for the Stout print, as I only have the Litho and not the screen print. I'd love to have it, but as I at least have a version of it already, won't be too heart broken if I miss it for a change. :-)

It was an awesome episode last night! I'm feeling quite a bit better that they seem to be returning to form after last week's somewhat weak episode. Won't spoil anything until I know all our foreign folks have had a chance to watch... but I'm pretty sure that you're going to really like it!

Patmc said...

just out of curiosity... is anybody able to reach www.postersandtoys.com? I'm able to ping them... so they are there... but I can't pull them up in a web browser (tried my work computer and my cell phone).

I sure hope the Stout traffic didn't kill their site already... the poster isn't supposed to go on sale for another 3 hours! LOL!

rtfarr1 said...

@Patmac
I just tried and it loaded without a problem

Patmc said...

Just for the hell of it... I just tried it in Firefox instead of IE... and it works. It works in Firefox, but not IE, or my webKit based browser on my phone? Huh???

@rtfarr1 - can I ask what browser you are using?

rtfarr1 said...

firefox
But I just tried it in IE as well, and it worked

Patmc said...

I'd suspect a caching issue in my IE... but I'm not sure why I would have an issue on my Palm Pre phone too. Weird.

Oh well. Guess I'll be using Firefox today for the attempt at a Stout print.

@rtfarr1 - thanks for the tech support help... :-)

rtfarr1 said...

Im glad to be able to help :)

Martyn said...

There is no alternate reality, just reality.

Do you reckon they were giving us hints to Season 6 throughout the dcaapb project or am I just reading too much in to it. Just seems an odd thing to point out really.

Martyn said...

ioioos said...

I'm not going for Tyler. Its a great piece, but its too "film poster" for my liking. Plus it too big!

UnseenPresence said...

Hrm. Not going to be happy with the donation thing if everyone's donations end up getting returned. Then again, that's one reason I donated separately not through PayPal, as mine won't be returned. I continue to find reasons to really, really avoid using PayPal for anything if at all possible.

On a completely separate note, has anyone in the LU first 108 received their follow-up email yet?

Ray said...

@UnseenPresence

No, I have not received my LU email yet.

Martyn said...

Is the Tyler posters going on sale in 10 minutes or are my clock watching skills still wayyyyyyyyyy off?

No 108 follow up e-mail for me either.

Amy Lynn said...

@Martyn, 1 hour and ten minutes. CST is 6 hours behind you.

Martyn said...

Thanks!

I'm going to have to start writing down all these time zones. CST, EST and PST. Are there any others?

Amy Lynn said...

Four time zones, in order, east to west, EST, CST, MST (mountain) and PST.

Indiana and Arizona go by their own rules, so I never have any idea what time it is there.

Martyn said...

Never heard of MST before, sounds kind of cool.

Thanks AMy Lynn

Patmc said...

Mountain Standard time. Covers Denver and the like. You're right though Martyn... it doesn't seem to get mentioned much for some reason. Probably because as far as the US goes... there's not very many MAJOR population centers in the zone.

Patmc said...

5 minutes out from the Stout sale... for those who are playing today. :-)

Weinbeeezy said...

help with stout? :]

Martyn said...

its up, $300

adam_keller said...

Stout still up

Patmc said...

Well... that was just about instantaneous... LOL

Oh well...

Martyn said...

It's strange, this is the first chance i've been able to legitimately buy this poster as the last two times was at an ungodly hour for us Brits. And it's $300. Good thing I only like it and not love it.

Sold out too it seems.

adam_keller said...

Gone

chaseter said...

I don't even think it was worth trying for. Less than 10 are going to be gone before you can hit add to cart.

Eh, I failed. No surprise there really.

Hope somebody got one though!

Martyn said...

Can anyone tell me why the blue variant of Monster Squad is more expensive than the red version?

Patmc said...

Paused too long to get logged in. Wasn't aware I needed to be logged in first, darn it.

Oh well... guess I'll just have to be happy with my Litho print... :-)

chaseter said...

Martyn...variants are always more because they are more rare.

Patmc said...

LOL! I still have it in my cart... maybe I should just keep trying to hit buy... until Tyler changes his mind. ;-)

Jason said...

Noo.. Paypal didnt accept credit card...

Martyn said...

Even though the variant's majority of the time look worse than the proper?

Patmc said...

@Jason - that blows. I really do hate PayPal most of the time...

They rejected my CC during the Ben buy (way back when)... for no apparent reason.

OMG Mitch said...

Thanks guys, I had literally 5 copies of the Lost poster to sell to the hundreds of people that were trying, so in essence, it was about the chances of winning a lottery. Wish I had more, cheers.

Jason said...

Yup Patmc. This has been my 2nd paypal problem. :(

Patmc said...

That's OK, Mitch. Knew it was a crap shoot... but just MUCH prefer buying from you rather than the blood-suckers on Ebay... LOL!

Weinbeeezy said...

Whew! Used my fios Internet for once and almost made it

Martyn said...

Paypal sucks!

Thanks for stopping by Mitch. 5 posters, amazing. Well, i'm happy for those lucky 5 who paypal loves.

Patmc said...

I'll have to post a link to my ancient blog... that gives a long story as to why I HATE PayPal. They can be a freaking nightmare to deal with. That, and every spammer/ID thief trolls for PayPal info. Don't EVER click on a link to take you to PayPal! ALWAYS type the URL into your browser yourself!

Martyn said...

I use the phone pin code system ever since I did get my paypal hacked for skype. Still don't like Paypal though.

BTW... if anyone is interested, Doc Jensen is doing a live Tweet right now. You can follow him with: @EWDocJensen on Twitter. He'll be on for another 20 minutes or so. He is on the day after the new episodes air each week, from 12 noon, to 1pm PST.

Oh... and if you haven't watched "The Substitute" yet... stay away! :-)
