drMikey Waveform Finality 24

It seems a fitting tribute that this collection of images from drMikey is posted after the disappointment of the Emmys last night.

The waveforms may have been unofficial but the whole project gave us something to hang on to and participate in while the last official LOST events were happening.

Click here or on the image above to go to the Island Isn't Done With You Yet web site, or click here to go to the original waveform post where all the direct links to the paintings and puzzle solutions are displayed.

The paintings are still available for sale so if you are thinking of purchasing one contact drMikey by going to the website or email drMikey for more details.

Next a little bonus if you still want to celebrate the phenomenon that was LOST, Bonnie (andalone) sent us these two scans of a postcard that was picked up at the auction. It gives a discount code for Cafe Press items if you spend over $40.

Use the code LOSTGAVEL to get 20% off if you spend over $40

The Rights and Wrongs of the LOST Auction 18

Now the auction is fading in to the distance the bidders are reflecting on what they have spent and how much extra it will cost to ship the Donkey Wheel, I think it's worth refelecting on what happened last weekend.

The Movie Prop Collectors Website has a brief look back at the auction as well as a video of some of the highlights of the day, you can watch that video below.

For me the first day of the auction was spent following all our favourite Losties on Twitter as well as via email and blogs to see what was going on. We posted a lot of pictures on the Day 1 and Day 2 LOSTARGs blog posts.

I missed the first few bids as I was at a family party, but when I got back and saw what was happening I was literally lost for words with some of the prices of items already sold.

I stayed up until around 5am in the UK for that first day with things still in full swing. Getting up the next morning and reflecting on the prices meant I knew I was almost out of my league for most items. Especially when two DHARMA beer cans went for $1500.

Day 2 started with more of the same, people viewing the exhibits and getting into the general lostness of it all. I think that is one of the things the the auction got absolutely right, to open as an exhibit for fans and provide more than just a warehouse with chairs.

In amongst all the auction and exhibit excitement we were given a bit more drama to watch as Dave Rambo travelled across America to be there, and there was a collective cheer when he arrived and we got a picture of him at the auction (see Day 1 post).

During day 2 of the auction I joined several losties in a Skype call and we talked about the auction and we listened as some of us bid for lots and even won one or two. I couldn't stay up for the entire night so I got a couple of hours sleep. However on getting up I saw the auction was still in full swing, so I sat back down to watch the bids rack up huge winning totals again.

I'll remember the whole 2 days because it gave the LOST Community maybe a last chance to collectively be involved in the show and share memories, bidding victories and our passion for LOST.

Unfortunately we now get to the wrongs of the auction, first we had the complete debarcle about the conditions of registration for the event, and the conditions of entry. First Profiles In History required a $500 deposit, then we didn't have to make that deposit, incidentally the auction conditions on the Live Auctioneers website still mentioned this $500 deposit on the day of sale. Along side the bidding conditions the criteria for entering the exhibit were even more confused and even now I'm still not 100% clear what was required to enter.

While we are talking about before the auction I have to mention the squirrel baby controversy, this was documented on Prop blogs (including and even the Wired Magazine website.

Still all of that was before the auction and we didn't need to worry about it when the auction got under way as we were all informed and knew what was happening.

Wrong, just after lot 1105 was sold we got this message on the screen, to say the Live Auctioneers online bidding system has a twelve hour limit and that only on the floor bids or telephone bids would be allowed.

At that point I was interested in a couple of items that were coming up so tried to call the number on screen, I could not get through, I tried several times but got no response dialling from the UK.

Then the message changed to say that all absentee bids were cancelled. Probably a bit too late as all absentee bids were more than likely made by people that were not going to be watching the auction !

Yes I know the terms and conditions say that absentee bids are not guaranteed to be placed, but to disreagard all absentee bids from that point on is really a bit of a joke in my opinnion.

So we are at the end of the auction, I couldn't bid on a few items, although I did want to and might have got them if I was given the chance. We have computer problems all the time so I wasn't too upset.

Until of course this email from Live Auctioneers arrived to all online registered bidders.

This completely contradicts what Profiles In History are saying, and when I emailed PIH I got a reply to say "...we were told there was a 12-hour limit per sessions. After 12 hours the data is no longer recorded..."

I have asked both Live Auctioneers and Profiles in History for further comment as both are saying the opposite thing, however neither company has decided to reply to that request.

So is this just another island mystery that will never be resolved, was there something wrong with the system and internet / absentee bids were not being recorded correctly ?

We may never know, but if you feel strongly about what happened I suggest you contact Profiles in History and Live Auctioneers to see if they will decide on a response together and not simply blame each other alone like a school yard spat. I will be happy to post any joint response they may here if they decide to make one.

Regardless of the bidding problem at the end, my overidding memory of the auction will be one of a final shot of camaraderie with the people I have grown to know and respect over the last 6 years, and I will always be grateful to LOST for the best shared TV experience I have ever known.

LOST University Masters Program Is Open 30

There was something else happening today but I can't quite remember.....:-) Ok, I'm kidding the LOST DVD's and BluRay for the 6th Season and also the complete collections are out today.

To go along with the release there is for a second year the LOST University. The site was updated overnight with the course details and there are lots of new news articles with dates suggesting they should have been released over the last few months, but only appeared today.

When the countdown clock reached zero there was a short, but fairly nondescript, video and the counter reset to 3 Months and 1 Day.

Big thanks to Patmc4Fun who managed to capture this video of the countdown reaching zero -

It seems that there was a slightly different video if you were logged in to the Lost University, Lottery_Ticket captured the logged in version and you can see it by clicking here.

Oddly enough if you look at the screenshot above it actually says 1 hour 34 mins, so as I write this I'm waiting to see what will happen for me. Update - ObFuSc8 has let us know that the clock is resetting to 1:48:00 (108 Minutes) for everyone, however a few users have seen odd timings like 5 months 495 days !

Let us know what happens when you get in to the Masters program by using your BluRay discs, and definitely let us know when you have passed your courses.

LOST Auction Makes $1,869,475 35

According to totally unofficial figures, i.e. I worked them out myself, the LOST Auction that took place over the weekend made a budget busting


If you want to find out how much each item went for then you can go to the LiveAuctioneers Website and go to the LOST Auction page.

Alternatively I have made a PDF file of the items and winning bids, this is totally unofficial and I have to say that I don't take any responsibility for any errors that may be present.

Click Here for Day 1 - $794,300

Click Here for Day 2 - $1,075,175

The files are in Adobe PDF format so you may need to download a separate plug in or application to open the files.

Many apologies for the earlier reported figure that was incorrect, a double accounting error crept in to the figures, the figures above are as accurate as we can make them with the information available.
