The End, Charity Auction Basket, Lost University 144

As if I needed to remind anyone, but today is the final episode of LOST, I can't believe I just typed those words, but the reality is drawing ever near. It seems contradictory to say Happy LOST day, but I might as well one last time.

Win Tim Doyle’s “Hurley’s Numbers” & Help A Charity that Benefits Children & Families
No Purchase Necessary

Here’s a message from one of our regular contributors to all LOSTARG’ers & LOST fans who would like to assist in putting together the ULTIMATE LOST Auction Basket to benefit a charity called DCU for Kids. You’ll also have a chance to WIN Tim Doyle’s “Hurley’s Numbers” (68/300) – yes it is one of his extra prints released with a “Sweet Ride” doodle!

Click on johnlahair.blogspot.com for a complete description of the Auction Item Request and the contest.

Then finally for now last night, at midnight EST, the Lost University website updated and the countdown clock changed to countdown to date which is a little over 3 months away and the video on the main page changed to give some information on the LU masters Programme, including video clips from season 6, with Ben and Locke as teachers of course.

First. Good Morning!

Zort70 said...

Good morning Chris, I'm all excited and sad at the same time.

ChrisL said...

Quite honestly... I'm in denial. It's not over.. I won't have it!

Nice auction ideas JPL... I have something to add to it and will email shortly.

Thanks for keeping this all together for so long Zort.

'Finally got to meet Damon and Carlton, and they gave me some awesome news re: my new poster. Also, the show was hilarious.'


hmmm. 'awsome news'? i think the best we can hope for is another print run. how great would that be!

but i m not getting my hopes up.

Martyn said...

Good morning all!

Right, time to wear a black outfit. Sure, it doesn't end until tomorrow night for me but today is the official end. It is sad. I'm glad I don't watch 24, because then that'd be 3 series finales in 4 days. Ashes to ashes ended on Friday in very confusing but satisfactory style. That's right, a lost fan found ashes to ashes confusing.

Right, time to get up and enjoy this beautiful sun. Minutes silence at 1:08PST as it is 21:08 in the UK. 2 108's make a right!

Joe Stas said...

Today is my last day on the internet before I avoid it (and everyone else in the world) until Friday.. Gonna be a tough week!

Gonna have to avoid watching it tomorrow morning (for various reasons) even though I'll no doubt be awake with this heat!

Zort70 said...

That Olly Moss tweet is intriguing, I wonder what it might mean.

Perhaps damon and Carlton have signed all the posters as well as Olly !

Martyn said...

Joe, why not just record the 5am showing?

Granted, i'd be up at 5am to watch it if my gf were here tonight but she can only come back tomorrow night. So i'm recording it and watching it.

I think someone also said there's no commercials either.

Zort70 said...

Joe, good luck in avoiding the internet, newspapers, TV and anything else that might spoil you it's rather a large task you have there.

I'm going to watch at 5am, and the moment it finishes I have to get in the car and go to work, no matter what the ending !

Martyn said...

ChrisL said...

To add insult to injury, not only does LOST end forever today but 30 Rock, Community, Fringe and The Office all had their season finale's last week :-(

Zort70 said...

Martyn, I'm fairly sure there will be commercials, the only odd thing is they will be at the same time as the US ones rather than Sky butchering an episode.

Maybe start recording at 5am and start watching at 5:30 to fast forward most of them.

Zort70 said...

There are a lot of things finishing this week and the next few, I might even get to do something that doesn't involve a computer.

Zort70 said...

or a television.

mrtibbs said...

RE Ollys news, what about a book or mini prints with the DVDs. Maybe box art work its self.

mrtibbs said...

(morning btw!)

MurghBatwar said...

@zort

That's what me and the missus are doing. Alarm at 5, make a brew and some toast. Start watching about 5.40...

Jobs a good 'un!!!

Martyn said...

@Zort...

Nuts! but I guess I wanted commercials this time around, but wasn't prepared to wait until Friday for it. I can't remember the last time I watched LOST with commercials. Maybe season 1 I think.

So I will sit and savour the commercials, slowly dragging out something that I never thought would happen. Lost finishing. :'(

Joe Stas said...

Zort and Chris, It's going to be real hard :(

I just have no choice. I'm gigging and recording with my band this week.. It's not something I can cancel.. I wish I could though. Who cares about careers when something as important as the Lost Finale is going to be on? :(

JPL said...

Happy Last LOST Day & a proper Good Morning To You All Everybody!

First, thank you Zort for posting info on the Auction on the front page - unexpected & so appreciated! This has been amazing 9 months with an amazing group of individuals, and I can't thank you and them enough. :)

Second, please remember that if you are unable to contribute a LOST item or other auction item... you may still enter to WIN - this contest is open to all fans regardless if you donate.

Lastly, although nothing lasts forever, memories and friendships are the two things that definitely withstand the test of time & boy do we have those.

Have a GREAT Sunday!

Weinbeeezy said...

interested to hear from the people who went to UCB in NY tonight... we had a special surprise visit from DAMON AND CARLTON... so i guess kimmel wasnt there last appearance...

Callum said...

@Zort + anyone else watching at 5 a.m. - there's also a 30 mins clip show before and after the finale (two different ones), so the LOST proceedings actually start at 4:30. I know you're all probs not interested, just don't want anyone tuning in to find out they've missed some LOSTness. :)

Zort70 said...

Thanks Callum, I think those two were on after the episode on Friday.

Martyn said...

Man, today is the wrong day to wear black! I think i'm going to abandon my plan and wear something cooler.

Right, today, i'm going to breeze through episodes 4-16 of LOST, all in prep for the finale.

@Weinbeeezy...

I'm interested to know what happened, so seeing as you're here, spill the beans beeezy!!!

Jeffrey said...

I was at the NY UCB show. Overall it was pretty bad, with most of the comedians throwing out different versions of what were essentially the same jokes. Our only Lost guest was Samm Levine who did a really hacky sketch where the joke was that he came up with sitcom spinoff show titles for his character, and all the titles all had the word "cluck" in them.

Davide said...

30 min clips? I will not be able to see them, 'cause i will watch the finale in Fox italia channel.

Will anyone record and share them?

andalone said...

*sniffle*sob* My heart is breaking.

Zort70 said...

We have a collective shoulder for you to cry on andalone.

ChrisL said...

andalone... we're here for you. We're in a mess too but, we're here for you.

Martyn said...

Too true! I made pancakes to cheer myself up! Didn't work.

Doe's anyone else think that there is still one more poster to come? Although the Olly poster felt like it brought Finality, I still feel as if they have one more thing up their sleeve.

Roswell said...

Maybe one last print about the Finale? Would love it! (well, I really don´t know for sure if I´d love it, I will know after watching the finale, lol)

Roswell said...

Eric Tan made "The Crash" so maybe he could make "The End" :)

Callum said...

You know, I thought they'd do a finale print too but the more I think about it, the more I think they won't. This was all about finality and bringing an end to the whole thing, it seems crazy that they'd do the first series, end it, bring it back for a second series, end it, then do another print afterwards. And Jensen tweeted saying Olly's was the last LOST print.

On a different note - I might pick up Candidate's Cave if it's still around on payday (Friday). Though I'm guessing the odds are stacked against me getting one, considering they were down to something like 70 last time I heard. :(

Also, did anyone read Olly's twitter feed? 'Finally got to meet Damon and Carlton, and they gave me some awesome news re: my new poster. ' - I wonder what that 'awesome news' is....

Lisa-Maladylis said...

I have to say that I'm quite down about it all ending. I wouldn't have made it through my horrible divorce from the abusive ex and then the loss of my son with out Lost to wach and all my friends here. sad day for sure

Martyn said...

@Lisa...

Further proof that LOST is more than just a TV show! I highly doubt there are any other shows that will bring together great people like yourself and others, who help each other out, even though they've never met!

Lost is dead! LONG LIVE LOST!

JGZ350 said...

Good morning from DFW Texas and happy series finale LOST day to all.
I was disappointed in not getting an Olly Moss print yesterday and did not have a good day. Today I woke up and realized that The End is very near. It's been a tremendous ride. I had the extreme pleasure of watching the pilot when it first aired and haven't missed an eps of LOST since. I was involved in the first ARG, the first poster series and now this poster series.
I just want to say that today should not be a day of mourning, but a day of celebration, LOST style. Enjoy the last 2.5 hours of LOST, Namaste and Good Luck!

Oh, and if any one has an extra Olly Moss they don't know what to do with, hit me up at JGZ350 at gmail dot com.

Martyn said...

HAZZAAAAHHHHHH!!!

Lisa-Maladylis said...

the people of Lost have become my friends and I think one of the reasons I'm so down is when your involved in something like this, people seem to disappear when it's all over. I sure hope that doesn't happen. But.. I do have alot of you on facebook so we can keep in touch that way and when ever you find the reason. I've loved every minute of it and you have all been and are great friends that it has been a Honor to get to know.

Ray said...

Morning guys, very sad about tonight. I'm also going to miss everything :(

Here is my very groggy UCB NY report....

I have to share Jeffrey's sentiment. The show really wasn't that great. I don't regret going, I still had a fun time! But I would be very pissed off if I came from far away to go or got in line mad early to get great seats. Here's the rundown of the show

1) Opened up with 3 dudes in dharma suits drinking beers and warming us up and chatting about life on the island. They were pretty decent. They all wore Frank Lapidus shirts.

2) First act was a guy who was supposed to be a dharma janitor. He did standup complaining about life on the island. It was alright.

3) Then they did this thing with a UCB guy planted in the audience who said he was on the plane. He was that guy we always saw "gathering driftwood" and tried to convince everyone he was friends with everyone on the show. It was kinda awkward and got old fast.

4) Next skit was a guy dressed up like Eloise Hawking. He built a makeshift donkey wheel on his belt and pushed it to go back in time or forward in time to answer audience questions. Each time he would have a nosebleed. It got weird by the end.

5) Okay I think I messed up the order already, but some guy came out pretending to be Jim Leyland from the Detroit Tigers. It made no sense and I think people started getting nervous at this point about the show.

6) Then they brought out another random standup comedian who just made Lost jokes. Not good.

7) The best part of the show was the next part. Zombie sayid and zombie claire (played by a fat guy) came out to give the audience gifts. Zombie Sayid was played by the same guy who does "Sayid Standup" on that video on the internet. They were both HILARIOUS and insulted the audience and each other constantly. Some of the gifts included 7 bags of sand, a bushel of sticks, dynamite with doc artz "meat" on it, a smokey smoked chicken cooked on a smoker, a pair of white pants belonging to jacob with a brown "stain" (notice the duality between light and dark), a john locke sports bra and a squirrel baby. At the end they got in a fight and Sayid snapped Claire's neck with his legs. Again, it was the best part of the night by FAR

(cont)

Ray said...

8) Then they brought out that guy Jeffrey mentioned who was in like 5 seconds of an episode once. I think the audience was pretty upset when we found out he was the special guest, if not even downright angry. I saw some really angry faces lining the crowd. Again, I was okay with it because I didn't come from very far away or wait in line long, but if I did I would be so pissed. They shouldn't have advertised that cast would be there for the UCB NY show if no cast were going to actually come....

9) The last thing was with Bobby Moynihan. He decided to scrap his bits he had been practicing and made a slideshow of himself with his LOST memorabilia. I thought it was actually pretty cool because he admitted "I'm totally just going to geek out here and embarrass myself and show you this". Pretty cool and props to him for showing off his stuff and his favorite picture memories. He's a much bigger fan than I thought! Also, Damon sent him a letter because he saw how big a fan Bobby was on SNL (he wore his Dharma sweatshirt a few times) and sent him the entire first print series and invited him to Times Talks.

Summary: We didn't get any celebrities, cast or crew. We got a short, maybe 5 second clip from D&C in the beginning. Scott Adsit, (the bald guy from 30 rock who was the only person I recognized on the cast list from before the show besides Bobby Moynihan) didn't even show up. Here's what I think happened. They planned the LA show and then said "we should really make this available to East Coasters as well" and set it up for NY. Then left UCB NY to fend for themselves. At the end I think people were pretty disappointed. I know I was okay with it but then got pretty bummed when I started getting Jensen's tweets on my trainride home to CT (You guys in LA seem to have gotten a much better show). But I know I shouldn't be upset because at least I was lucky enough to go. I'm sure Amy Lynn and Jeffrey can add more, maybe I got some stuff wrong...

Also, where were you guys watching the show from? I was sitting on the floor in the center by the stage right behind a couple of people, just to the left of the center column.

Ray said...

and yeah, what's the deal with Olly's tweet! I like that idea that it could be the Season 6 artwork!

JGZ350 said...

Interesting tweet from Olly, maybe there will be a second run of his LOST print or maybe a print from the finale. Which print will sell out next??? I think the Candidate Cave will sell out next. I guess I should pick one up before the finale as I have a felling that once The End is done with alot of stuff on DCAAPB site will start to move.

Daniel said...

I really cant decide if I should get the Candidate cave one. I havent gotten any prints yet since it the postage to Aus is a bitch ($40USD)n So ironically it ends up being $108AUD :P Which is damn expensive for an art print imo, although I really want some awesome lost memorabelia for my wall. Hmmm decisions decisions. If I had gotten a chance for Olly's piece I would of grabbed it in a second though :(

Lisa-Maladylis said...

I have to say the kate and claire is growning on me big time. It really does look like them in comic book form. Love it but I will get it big time if I start buying more. lol

JGZ350 said...

The Kate and Claire print is looking better and better every time I see it. I'm having a tough time choosing between the Candidiate Cave and Kate and Claire. The scene from Kate and Claire is definitely one of the scenes that stands out for me from Season 6.

Martyn said...

@Lisa...

You know the rules. You can't buy it! It's got people in it.

Davide said...

Olly'd and Danger's print are still in "preorder".

I can't wait to have them delivered to me :D

Lisa-Maladylis said...

yeah I know Martyn this is what has me stalled on pushing the button. lol stupid really we shall see what I feel when I get home tonight well, this morning. I will be leaving for the Lost party in a hour. I just made a ton of buttons and necklaces to take with me and grabbed some other stuff. I will put up photos when I get back tomorrow.

Lisa-Maladylis said...

here are some of the things I taking with me...
LostStuff

Sam G said...

e-mail

Martyn said...

Ugh, I want a fish biscuit now! They look so good!

Lisa-Maladylis said...

lol they are Martyn they are just sugar cookies with food color to make them that orange. Got my drive shaft pins which I will pass out at the party too. Do they look ok ?

Weinbeeezy said...

Wow! I'm sorry you New Yorkers had such a bad time... The LA show was amazing... Paul Schear and his partner were hilarious! They had many skits they did and kept the crowd laughing.

As a special suprise Damon and Carlton were there the whole time. We also had Eddie kitsis, Adam horowitz, Noreen, Sam, and Greg nations. Eddie, Adam and Greg were all parts of skits.

Richard Alpert and Michael also stopped by, performing in skits also. Kevin tong and Olly Moss were also in the crowd... Very funny and very special. AMAZING

Ray said...

@Weinbeeezy

Sounds awesome! I also saw MIB was doing a Pacino impression, very jealous.

BTW "Lost Finale" is trending

Martyn said...

I liked the DS pins too, and the Oceanic one. I think I just got too distracted by the fish biscuits. I saw one with the sugar glistening and began drooling. So, went and started another BBQ so I can eat.

According to my iPhone, it is hotter here than in New York and Honolulu. But I imagine in NY it is quite muggy anyway.

Amy Lynn said...

Good morning =)

I liked the NY show a little bit better than you guys did, I guess. Zombie Sayid and Zombie Claire were great, and I thought the Eloise Hawking skit was pretty damn funny until the end, too.

Bobby Moynihan's bit was wonderful, if just for the fact that Damon SENT him the entire DCAAPB set.

And I ran into geekboypress on the street after, which was excellent. Can't wait to pick up some of his Etsy prints after my wallet calms down.

Happy LOST day.

Ray said...

@Amy Lynn

Yeah, I definitely enjoyed myself - I think I just came off as groggy since I didn't get home until almost 4am!

Have a GREAT day guys! I'll be heading to Costco soon to pick up mass amounts of Dharma food. Can't believe its almost over!

ChrisL said...

Our UK Dharma party in full swing! Did the DI serve Pimms? Probably not in the qualtity I've consumed this afternoon.

Happy LOST day!

ChrisL said...

quantity even. Bit of a give away that!

maven said...

Happy Last Lost Day (as if we're really happy)! Trying to stay spoiler-free today...even Damon has warned us that there are spoilers out there and he's not happy about that! Also he said he had a sleepless night like I'm sure many of us had!

@weinbeezy: Wow...sounds like an amazing experience last night. Good seeing you last night at the party before you guys headed over there. Hope some of that ends up online somewhere.

Amy Lynn said...

Hope everyone is having fun party times. We are having a quiet day. It's our second anniversary. Hubby got me a beautiful gold necklace with a heart pendant, and he got a Kindle :)

Ray said...

@Amy Lynn

Happy Anniversary!

Martyn said...

@ChrisL...

Pretty sure Horace did. Just don't go playing with dynamite!

Martyn said...

Happy Anniversary Amy Lynn!

Jason said...

Happy Lost Day! Can't wait to watch the last episode today. I envy you guys who live in the US and saw the skits.

ChrisL said...

Happy Anniversary Amy Lynn. Great gifts!

Amy Lynn said...

Actually, one of my favorite quotations from last night it: "Richard's Social Security number is one of those Egyptian bird symbols."

Limbofunk said...

Happy Anniversary Amy Lynn, happy Lost Day everyone! I'm on my way to my parent's house in a bit as I don't own a TV.

Martyn said...

I think this is a good time to go in to internet LOCKDOWN. Will check DCAAPB at 1:08 and if anything happens i'll be back.

If not, Happy LOST Finale Day to you all! I hope how ever you choose to watch The End is fantastic and you never forget it!

Thank you to everyone i've come to know and love and consider great friends. Made the last 9 months awesome and allowed me to reveal my true LOST geek! I shall see you all on the other side!

10 hours of work to get through tomorrow and then I get to sit down and enjoy the most anticipated Finale since Life on Mars, for me anyway, with my girlfriend and parents. Perfect!

Namaste and Good Luck!

Weinbeeezy said...

@maven.. Good seeing you too!!

Jay n Jack tonight! Woot woot

maven said...

@Amy Lynn: Happy Anniversary on the Lost Finale Day! Wishing you and your hubby all the best!

ChrisL said...

Martyn. Top Man. Enjoy. I'm going to hang around for a few more hours before I switch off until tomorrow night.

Patrick said...

Talk about heart attacks: at 10:08 an Olly tweet popped up, but not of any Lost concerns!

Whew!

Two minutes later, a Jensen tweet, also not of any Lost concern.

Devils!

Sam G said...

There's Kimmel tonight and I think they are trying to get all the actors they can possibly get there.

Amy Lynn said...

To LA folks: Who are the Fine brothers, and why did Damon revoke their status as fans?

Sam G said...

They do parodies on youtube - don't know the specifics

matthew said...

@amylynn there a group of guys who do like a parody with action figures. And they basically talked crap the whole entire time during their skit piece at UCB LA.

Sam said...

Happy Last Lost Day all! There are Lost T shirts all around here at the LA Omni-a nice celebration with instant friends.

My thanks to you all too- especially Zort of course-I wouldn't be going to the J&J show tonight - or have enjoyed countless other Lost moments-without your help.

So Happy Aniversary AL- Namaste Martyn-I'll keep checking back Zort- guess we'll all always be a little Lost.

It's been my pleasure (mostly ;-) ) to host this little shindig.

The people are the most important part of the puzzle and we have had some of the best here.

RobPerrin said...

I've been coping this week by staying crazy busy. Helps keep my mind off The End. But with less than 8 hours to go, anxiety is starting to creep in...

It'll be pretty low-key for me tonight. I'll watch with my kids. We'll break out some t-shirts, my Dharma koozie, and a few other LOST goodies to help celebrate.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hello to all my LostARG friends. Happy LOST finale' day. Can that really be true?

Just Thinking said...

Sorry for the unintended impersonation above- borrowed laptop- Sam is actually Just Thinking!

Joe Stas said...

Just out of interest, does anyone have any of their last series prints framed and does anyone have any pictures of them? I'd be interested to see how people had them done.

Walkindude125 said...

Hey Everyone,

Came to the newest print series a little late in the game, and sadly missed the Moss drop yesterday due to my sister's birthday.

If anyone would like to trade/has one to sell, I have a mint condition BEN LINUS PRINT by Todd Slater (and it's print number 108! I'll send pictures ahead of time if you'd like the proof) to trade.

If you'd rather not trade, I'd be willing to pay $100 plus shipping for the print.

Email me at tmarasco125@gmail.com if you're interested! Thanks!

JPL said...

@AmyLynn - Happy Anniversary!

@LisaM - Nice biscuits! I feel a little naughty saying it like that, but I think you know what I mean. :) If I could, I'd drive up to NH to party w/ the rest of the New England crew.

Sounds like Jensen is at it again... a 1:08pm tweet... does he not know what we're going through?

Comixguru has what we all need: http://twitpic.com/1qep17

Donated to lostathon.com & they looked great on Good Morning America.

So much going on for a day that we should be chilling.

Davide said...

I'm doing a finale marathon.
All night long i will watch lost (i'm at episode 5 now), until the finale, tomorrow at 6AM.

THEN, i will have time for sleep. :D

ChrisL said...

Joe, I would suggest spending a couple of weeks working your way through all of the previous posts on Lostargs. Not only will it be a great deal of fun and help you through the dreadful weeks ahead, you'll also find loads of links in amongst the comments where people posted their framed prints...

I might just do that myself actually. I'm beginning to feel terribly sad.

capostar said...

Olly probably means that it was some personal good news about his poster. It probably doesnt affect us.

capostar said...

...unless it's about the poster being made into a t-shirt or something non-poster.

Ray said...

Olly tweeted his AP copies of yeaterday's print #s 1-50 will be available next month

JPL said...

This might be the good news via Twitter:

ollymoss
My AP editions numbered 1-50 of Yesterday's lost print will be available next month.

Ray said...

@JPL

we must be on the same wavelength!

dylansdad said...

Olly just tweeted that his copies will be sold next month.

JPL said...

@Ray - You beat me to the punch.:)

Got to love Twitter & following these guys.

Except for Jensen on occasion... his tweets scare me more than Claire's Squirrel Baby & Flocke combined!

Ray said...

@JPL

you should have seen squirrel baby last night. Looked like a combination of Wilson from Cast away and a fetus.

MiddayShadows said...

So the time has come...

Happy L O S T finale day to everyone here!

Enjoy!

JPL said...

@Ray

If they put Squirrel Baby up for bid at the Profiles in History Auction... I say we as a group collectively bid and adopt Squirrel Baby.

The LOSTARG's family (dysfunctional at times like any other family) would make proud surrogate parents of Squirrel Baby. Zort has diaper duty first!

:)

Ray said...

Haha I seriously would put in for that!

Clay said...

Guys, Olly's tweet does not mean they are printing more. I for one would be very angry to find out they were, considering the site says " Once this limited edition print has sold out, they will never be printed again. " Imagine all the people that just shelled out 300 bux for the print, and then they go and release 500 more? Major backlash, at least from the poster collecting community, they hate that kind of thing.

It probably means its going to be the Season 6 artwork, or maybe some of the prints will be signed by random cast members, or who knows, could be anything.

JPL said...

@Midday - Right back at you!
@Ray - time to start petitioning.

Davide said...

KEN TAYLOR did an amazing job.
I just rewatched Sundown. He depicted PERFECTLY Kate and Claire's faces.

Amazing.

ChrisL said...

Screen Grabs ;-)

Midday, enjoy!

JPL said...

@Davide - can't wait to get mine. Hoping for gold ink!


@All - Here's the Twitter petition:
#ThanksToLost I've decided to petition @CarltonCuse @DamonLindelof to allow fans a chance to adopt #LOST #squirrelbaby Please retweet!

Off to shop for tonight. The hour is fast approaching. Later!

Martyn said...

@Davide...

I thought the same thing earlier when I watched it. Claires face is spot on.

I'm currently on Ab Aeterno in my S6 rewatch. Think i'm going to load a couple on to my phone to watch while i'm at work.

Only come on to buy the teefury tee and see if anything happens at 1:08. If not, it'll just be a minutes silence, giving thanks to the 6 great years of LOST!

@JPL...

Retweeted it!

Davide said...

No 1.08 news i think... it's really over...

Mason said...

@Clay

They are just releasing the 1-50 of "Lost" print Olly did.

ChrisL said...

I'm officially checking out until late tomorrow night then. Enjoy this great moment all of my wonderful LOST friends. It's been quite a ride. no doubt some of you will be here in 24 hours to share thoughts, those of you that aren't... thanks for making this past year so special for myself and for Alice.

Zort. You are a star. Thankyou.

Night all.

Ray said...

Night Chris!

JGZ350 said...

Game over, no surprise reveals going on at DCAAPB.com 1:08 PST. Going through F5 withdrawal. I need some Dharma beers to take the edge off. Oh well, next month when Olly releases his copies, I'm sure the hype will have died down and maybe this time I will be in front of my notebook when he drops his 50 APs.

capostar said...

i feel like purchasing the Number's print--it looks pretty cool in the prize pack screenshot

Davide said...

i want a squirrel baby puppet. :D

geekboypress said...

I came from Philly for the NY show last night and had a good time! Kinda sad no Jorge or Michael, but hey...Sam Levine!(who doesn't like Freaks and Geeks?) Loved Bobby's Lost collection and his experiences with Damon and Jorge. It was awesome to meet Amy Lynn and her boyfriend in person. Funny how your interpretation of people change once real life enters the equation.

Still refreshing every once in awhile...just in case...

Davide said...

If i ever tell my GF i'm doing a LOST marathon for ALL night long, i think i could be single the day after i'll tell her.

I want my life back.

Joe Stas said...

Switching the internet off now until I've seen the episode on Friday evening! Hope y'all enjoy it! BYE

JPL said...

It's almost that time.

Thank you to "You All Everybody" at LOSTARG's for what has been amazing 9 months.

See you in another life brotha! (or at least tomorrow) :)

Davide said...

(i'm watching it at 1.33x so i can sleep a couple of hours before the finale and JKL :D)

I'm a maniac.

maven said...

Had a lovely brunch at the Omni this morning with LT, Scoutpost, Just Thinking, ObFuscate, MEL, PatMC, David R., David, Josh, Jonine. When I left (I'm watching it at home tonite with hubby), I realized it was my last meet-up with my Lostie friends...very emotional.

MiddayShadows said...

Almost that time folks...

Six years in the making... Have a great time watching the finale...

Here's something to help you prepare for after the series ends:

The Smoke/Flock shirt sold out a while ago.

Oh man. I feel so terribly sad and empty. I no longer have lost to look forward to.

Davide said...

It's over.

I won't comment, to avoid "spoilers".

Amy Lynn said...

Enjoy, West Coasties and Europeans!

That's all I need to say.

capostar said...

I really liked the way it ended however, I'm still sort of confused and I think some people will be upset and want more answers.

Amy Lynn said...

I will say 99% =)

I sat right by Kevin Tong at the Jay and Jack screening... funny watching him trying to flag down the guy with the mic during the Emerson Q&A. I tried flagging the mic guy too, so I could send him over to Kevin :)

Mark Englert said...

@capostar Now, we all move on :)

Mark Englert said...

Also, we let go :)

Until the NEXT series of prints... god, I can easily think of 8 amazing prints based on the finale.

Maybe I'll just do some on my own, I do make my living as an artist, after all.

Hey all. Sorry if this is the wrong place for this, but I purchased 2 items from DCaaPB for a friend, who bought the items herself and forgot to tell me!

So if anyone is interested, I'm happy to sell them for cheaper than on DCaaPB. I bought -

'I'm With Jacob' Print (will sell for $42.50, so save yourself $7.50!)

'Not Penny's Boat' by Olly Moss t-shirt, size Medium (will sell for $17.50, so save yourself another $7.50!)

My email is sarah_0901@live.com, please feel free to contact me. And again, sorry if this is the wrong place to mention this.

Sarah

I've opened up a final (for the moment) NEW POST for any discussion on the finale if you want to use it.

UnseenPresence said...

BTW, I've decided that if anyone on this site has a Locke's Secret they're willing to trade me for the LOST Olly Moss print, feel free to email me at: unseenpresence at gmail.

I don't expect that to happen, but you never know.

Zort, I'd still love it if we could get one post about people still looking for prints. One last attempt to get good LostARGers what they truly love.

Ray said...

I guess this is the post for print/non-finale related talk?

My print orders are all still on pre-order FYI (earliest one I bought was Black Rock). My shirt turned to "queued" before it shipped, so I guess we should expect the same with the prints? Hopefully GoMerch gets them in stock soon!

Ray said...

I wonder what the print counts are for the remaining posters. Anyone know that coding method to check?
