Exploring The Candidate Cave 86


A lot of people have already been receiving this poster by Guy Burwell and amazingly the poster has not yet sold out and can still be purchased at DamonCarltonandaPolarBear.com

Meanwhile if you are still making your mind up here are some close up views courtesy of RamHatter and JPL who have their posters.

I am reliably informed that the gold ink used to print the posters is very striking and that the detail is superbly crisp and clear.

Personally I'm still not sold on the mechanical / harpoon hand that Locke is holding out with the black and white stone. However the detail is certainly superb having had a look at the close up shots.


One of the numbers circles from the cave and after Jacob's campfire chat it isn't surprising that one of the other circles contains number 51




Finally a signature, number 337 out of 550, and to clear up some confusion the DCaaPB website says this is an edition of 500 however the small print at the bottom of the purchase page says there are 550, with only 500 for sale to the general public.

Under The Sea

Amy Lynn said... with serious, profound apology to Menken/Ashman

“Under the Sea X”

The island is very happy
as long as the light can glow
You dream about sailing home, but
the island will not allow
Just think of the world’s infection,
perhaps cataclysmic end
It’s all for your own protection,
we not blowing smoke, my friend

Under the sea
Under the sea
Maybe you crash here,
maybe you flash here,
turning the key,
Off of the cliff, you take a leap
Down in the hatch, we never sleep
Dharma beer drinking
keeps us from sinking
under the sea

You come on a rigged up freighter
with only a mop and broom
Bad news about Widmore’s freighter
One death and it all goes boom
Too heavy for helicopter,
you fly on Ajira’s planes
No matter they’re rigged with duct tape,
You’ve finally escaped the chains!

Under the sea
Under the sea
Donkey wheel portal
Plus you’re immortal
Jake’s guarantee
We’ll send a friendly submarine
You drink the juice, don’t ask what it mean
We’ve got your drug here,
Just don’t unplug here
under the sea!

You can atone here
won’t die alone here
new inductee,
Even the workmen at the school
They think the statue’s groovy cool
Just a suggestion
don’t ask a question
under the sea
The doc and the Locke,
the con and the Swan,
the Kate feel the hate,
and Eko be gone,
You bleed for Sayid,
Beware crazy Claire,
and Boone the buffoon has pens,
(yeah)

The Troup left the group,
the Steve had to leave
Forgot who got shot,
but still you can grieve
To talk to Danielle
you might have to yell
The whispers freak her out

Under the sea
Under the sea
Jack likes to cry,
we never knew why,
you caged detainee
Maybe your luck is running low
Maybe you’re stuck here from long ago
Every survivor,
Looking Glass diver
under the sea
Some will be good here
some carry wood here
under the sea
Sky’s turning violet,
go get the pilot
Adam and Eve here
they’d love to leave here
Maybe you’ve tried ways
Have you tried sideways?
Under the sea

Lost University - New Man In Charge 50

After all the fall out from the final episode it seems odd writing about a new event in the LOST world, but here we are.

Earlier today Ray told us that the LOST University website was updated with several new news articles, however shortly after they were posted they disappeared again.

Update - after about an hour the news articles reappeared



If the news reappears, or if there is any other Lost University news we will let you know.

The End - Discuss 582

No updates, no new posters, just a place to discuss the end if you want to, be warned the no spoilers rule is rescinded for this post.

The picture is from my garden this morning shortly after the episode started when the light was the brightest and warmest it's been this year, sort of fits really.



We have just received finale thoughts from Ben Morse and I thought I would share them with you all.

A TV series lives or dies by it’s final episodes. It’s the final images, rewarding ardent fans ideally, and swaying those that sat on the fence that actually, this show was special. Sunday night / Monday morning’s Lost finale was just that – an extraordinary grace note that consolidated six years of one of the most ambitious science fiction dramas ever committed to by a major network.

The genius of Lost lies in its flaws.......

Click here to read the rest of the article

It is at its base, a show about being human. About connections, emotions and memories. The argument between science and faith. Live together, die alone – because as we learned at the end, whatever happened, happened.

If that seems like Lost cliché overload, it isn’t. Because these are notions that were brought up six years ago, five years ago, last week, buried amongst dense theological abstracts, quantum physics, religious symbology and that bloody electromagnetism.

For instance – take The Cork – a literal cork? A gateway to hell? An electromagnetic conduit? Lost taught us, very gently and carefully that our obsession with these details is irrelevant. It’s just there. And it needed replacing. Hell, at that point I forgave the tunnel of love from two episodes ago (I still maintain that episode was deeply flawed, and could have been handled better).

And the oh-so-cleverly mislabelled “flash sideways” that fans named, and Cuse & Lindelof happily lifted resolved successfully, quite the achievement in itself, but that it came in the form of an emotional sucker-punch so far out of left field that by all rights you should splutter in disbelief made it all the more special. I’m not ashamed to say Jack’s resolution (and consequently, all of the castaways) was the final moment I burst into tears openly. Hurley’s destiny, Ben’s apology, all found me with something in my eye.

A large part of the credit for that must fall with a cast, who really stepped up in the dying hours of the show. Jorge Garcia, Matthew Fox, Terry O’Quinn and Michael Emmerson obvious standouts in a uniformly strong ensemble. In a season that has had its mis-steps at times (I still don’t like that The Smoke Monster didn’t have a name, and that Jacob turned out to be kind of a douche – but hey! That’s what makes them fallible and human, which is what the show is about, right? RIGHT?) the commitment by the cast to the ideals of the show, and putting their trust in Jack Bender’s assured direction created a credible, moving piece of drama.

We are still left with hundreds of questions. Lost was never going to answer them. The trick was making us not care, something it managed in spades. It still played ball with it’s fans though. The two and a half hours were filled with those little moments that die-hards have loved, obsessed over and developed with the show – references to Olly Moss’ Locke’s Secret art print as Locke dies in the shape of the corpse on Hitchcock’s Vertigo poster – “Christian Shepherd. Really?” – Christian standing in front of a Unitarian stained glass window, the extraordinary closing minute wrapping the show full circle. It seems cheap to compare Christian to a God figure, and Jack to Jesus, but with his dying for our sins, and oh-so symbolic side wound, and six years of being beaten up, there’s no confusion over what was intended here. But it’s a start point, not an ending, and not finite – there were elements of the divine in Hurley, in Locke, hell – even Ben’s Judas had his transcendental moments.

A TV series lives or dies by its final episodes. It’s the final images, rewarding ardent fans, ideally. For six years, Lost fans lived together, and it doesn’t matter if you were faith or science, Jack or Locke, Jacob or Smokey. Lost was about the experience of being human. And in tapping into that (and realising the best way to hide it from it’s audience was in plain sight) Lindelof & Cuse can sit proudly as owners of a very special piece of TV.

DamonCarltonandaPolarBear Confusion, Mayhem and Chaos- Just what we Love :-) 91

As happened last night DamonCarltonAndAPolarBear.com was used to promote a password for the Official LOST variety show at the UCB theatre in New York and Los Angeles.

The site changed several times with the password appearing and nothing else and then the posters and back again to just the password, and in the middle of that the Daniel Danger print went on sale again for a brief moment and we have reports of people managing to purchase a copy. The image below, sent in by Limbofunk and Patmc shows the Daniel Danger print as Coming Soon not with it's normal Sold Out banner.


Things have settled down now and we have the posters and the password and show information on the same site for the moment.

No word on when the next poster wil be available yet, but stay tuned it could be a long evening / night / morning.

New Poster - Not Pennys Boat 184

A new poster has arrived on the damoncarltonandapolarbear.com web site.

It is entitled "Not Penny's Boat" and is by Little Friends Of Printmaking who have a website at - thelittlefriendsofprintmaking.com

The poster depicts the scene from season 6 in which Charlie and Desmond plunge into the sea and Sideways Desmond has a flash of the alternate Charlie.









Everything is for Sale 73

At around 20:30 BST, 12:30 PST the new DamonCarltonAndAPolarBear site started selling its wares, and now nearly 12 hours later, guess what, it is all still available for sale.

We have seen a smooth ordering process, which unfortunately has now been updated to stop multiple copies being purchased in one transaction, and some reports that their order status has now changed to shipped already.

As to when the remaining will be for sale in the Quarantined areas we have no information on when this might happen, but there are eight slots and eight days to the final episode so maybe that is not a coincidence.
