It has been a quiet, peaceful Christmas for me. I hope your's is all that you hoped for...and a Happy New Year to come...filled with all we anticipate for all the Lost fans.

capcom said...

Ditto to everyone, God's blessings and good health in the New Year! :o) And may all our Lost dreams come true.

LOL Village, and congrats to being the only one to think of saying it like that. :-D

Hi All,

Hope no one has the post-holiday blues. Just in case, here is a little something Lost/SouthPark related to cheer you up. Someone used the make-your-own South Park character site to create the Lost characters. Very funny. I wish that I had thought of that. And no, I would never admit to watching South Park. ;-)

Cheers with your favorite adult holiday beverage!!! :o)

capcom said...

Also, submitted for your holiday/Lostbreak perusement: a site with pretty good fan-made Lost vids:

Ciao

memphish said...

Capcom, thanks for the links.

Hope everyone had a great Christmas.

Dennis, I saw a rumor that Daybreak may be airing this Wednesday night on ABC. You can look here: http://www.lost.com/isdaybreakback.shtml

I hope for your sake it is true.

Dennis said...

RE: Day Break

The schedule on ABC.com shows it at 10:00 tomorrow, but according to this article it is a mistake.

By the way, the listing on ABC.com saying that "Day Break" will air on Dec. 27 is erroneous. The network's press Web site lists two episodes of "The George Lopez Show" as airing in the former "Day Break" spot.

ABC had planned to start offering unaired episodes of the canceled “Day Break” this week on the network's Web site, but music clearance issues have prevented the posting of the remaining seven episodes until after the holidays at the earliest, according to a network representative.

The plan had been for one "Day Break" episode per week to be posted at ABC.com. There are a total of seven unaired episodes; six episodes aired before the network pulled the plug on the serialized thriller. The network said to check back after the holiday for more news on when the show's remaining episodes may be posted online.

memphish said...

Sorry Dennis

Dennis said...

That's ok... as long as I can eventually see the rest of the episodes, nobody gets hurt :)

BTW, Today is... drumroll please ..............

42 DAYS UNTIL LOST


WooHoo!

Dennis said...

Don't forget the practice Podcast is tonight. See the front page for details...

Melissa_Lossa said...

Hi, everybody! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!

I'm hoping to tune in for the live podcast this week - it'll be fun to hear eveyone. :)

maven said...

Hey everyone! Hope your holiday was great!

Looks like I won't be around tonight to call in to the podcast! :( (Something came up with the family.)

Thanks for countdown update, Dennis! Keep us informed as to those "special number days"!

CattyGirl said...

Hope everyone had a very merry Christmas! I received a Jack figure as a gift and had a good time setting it up. (Feel like quite the geek when I tell people that, except here I don't feel geeky at all.)

memphish said...

Cattygirl -- it's still geeky, but we embrace your inner geek here.

capcom said...

Hi Friends,

Here's another funny, presumably made by the same person who made the "Lost Rhapsody" parody film. The ending is great. :-D

Where would we be without the geeks?

Passafist said...

Stupid Skype is acting Buggy!!! None of the Skypcasts are working!! Will get back in a few moments with an alternate idea!!! Hold tight!!!

Passafist said...

Sorry Everybody... but Skype was acting up tonight and it looks like none of the Skypecast were working. So I've scheduled a new Skypecast for tomorrow night at 10:15. This really stinks sorry again!

Passafist said...

10:15est! Sorry about that!!

Dennis said...

Sorry to hear about the Skype problems. I updated the front page to reflect the new time.

maven said...

Well, at least I didn't miss anything last night! Yeah for me! LOL

bpfinn said...

It seems "Daybreak" was replaced with "What About Brian?" on the ABC website. I seem to have bad luck with shows with ongoing plots: Daybreak, Threshold, Invasion, etc. I hope my bad luck doesn't infect Lost.

maven said...

Hey gang:

This week's EW has a page on Michael Emerson as a "Breakouts: Brightest New Stars of 2006" Pic shows him standing in one of the cages. Here's an interesting quote: "I have no evidence from the script that [Ben's] really a bad, bad man. I'm still not convinced that he isn't some kind of freedom fighter." (Hope this isn't considered a spoiler, Dennis.)

engineer27 said...

Attention LoCos:

New "Lost Moment" is up on abc.com.

No discussion here, due to spoilerish nature of the previews.

maven said...

Engineer27: Thanks, but that Lost Moment was out on Dec. 22nd.

Dennis said...

According to the AMEX site, a new "Lost Moment" will be available on Friday at 8:00 am EST.

I see the potential in the skypecast! Unfortunately, you guys cut in and out a lot (hearing every other or third word!) Where were all the regulars?

CattyGirl said...

I'd like to at least listen in tonight. Passafist, will it be the same link as above?

CattyGirl said...

Passafist - Have you thought about trying out Talkshoe?

Anonymous said...

New "Lost Moment" is up on abc.com.

I used 888-258-3741 to enter the site.

I won't say anymore, I don't want to spoil anything.

Have a good day LoCos, I'll try to listen in tonight.

CattyGirl said...

Thanks TLCM!!! I was looking forward to that. Hope you are doing well.

maven said...

Thanks for the heads-up on the Moment, Tlcm! Hope the New Year is good for you!

capcom said...

Good Day LoCos!

All the Lost Moments are also on Lostpedia too, with the scripts written out. Now that I think of it, Amex should make the code be the numbers! That would be fun and maybe satiate our TLE jones for two seconds, getting to type the numbers into something to be able to view a video. :o)

Also on Lostpedia, since it was discussed here, is their list of frequently spoken phrases and expressions. It's pretty substantial and thorough. We discussed this on the last post, I think. The list is here:

http://lostpedia.com/wiki/List_of_regularly_spoken_phrases

TGIF All! :o)

I've got Skypcast up and running and I pulled up passafist's link. I was able to do a test call with Maven and I think we got a handle on it. I'm searching for LoCos' names to add to my contact list but I'm not having much luck finding them. So once your account is set up post your user name here and we'll be able to find each other. BTW I'm tlcm-LoCo

Hey guys the Skypecast will be posted on Tuesday! I have to do some serious editing on it! WORD UP!!!

CattyGirl said...

Happy New Year's Eve! I was too tired to stay up on Friday night. Hope you had some fun with the live podcast. I look forward to hearing it.

Dennis said...


Happy New Year's Eve!


What's everybody doing tonight?

Twinkle said...

Putting the kids to bed, watching a movie, and then crashing early. :-P Tomorrow we'll celebrate with the little ones. I keep a calendar for them so they can learn the days of the weeks and months of the year. My son is pretty excited but I'm not sure if it's because we'll start writing a new year or because he'll be turning 4 years and 200 days old. lol

How about you?

maven said...

Happy New Year to all you LoCos!

We're going out to dinner with some friends and will try to stay up until midnight. Waaaay past my bedtime! LOL Hope everyone has a safe, healthy, and very LOST New Year!

Good Evening All-

I want to wish all my fellow Loco's a very Happy and Prosperous New Year. Peace be with you all.

Happy New Year LoCo!

Watched the ball in Times Square drop from the comfort of my home with my family, a nice way to ring in the new year.

May our 2007 be the best yet!

Twinkle said...

Happy New Year all!

Looks like TLE this summer was more than just how we wasted our time. It was part of a culture shift. Check out these stats (posted also on SotL) from New Scientist magazine:

Take YouTube.com. In July, just seven months after its launch, YouTube users were posting 65,000 new videos and viewing 100 million clips per day....

The other huge phenomenon was MySpace.com, which lets users post and share personal information. Particularly popular with teenagers, it became the most visited address for US users in July, receiving more hits in a one-week period than even Google. By August it had registered its 100-millionth account.


See any possible connections?

And I love the Time's Person of the Year article. One thing they miss though is that you don't have to choose between Lost and blogging. You can do them at the same time, especially on TLC! :-)

Passafist said...

Well I took the two live podcasts (about 3 and a half hours of audio) and editied them down to about an hour! This show is really interesting but very different! IT will be ready sometime tomorrow afternoon! I'll keep you all posted!!

capcom said...

Happy New Year LoCos!!!!!!!

I spent the last two days in a lodge in the Smokies, and today in a restaurant that had 4 TVs going, there was the Mother Of All Lost Previews!!!!! The sound was down so I couldn't hear it, but it showed most of the Lost Moments up to this point and THEN SOME!!! Lots of footage that was not shown yet. Yikes!! Still advertised as starting on Feb. 7 though, but that could still change.

Any of you link-surfing gurus out there willing to try to find today's monster Lost preview for us on the Internet? It was a doozy!

Hope everyone is safe and warm this January 1st. And I pray for everyone to have a happy, and healthy, and very Lostie 2007! XO

Hey all! Here's hoping your holidays were par excelance, and your New Years eve even better. I know mine was. I just spent the last week re-watching the first season of Lost with my mother, and making sure she's totaly addicted. New Years resolution acceved. ;)

memphish said...

Happy New Year everyone! Maven, you are becoming Lady Links-a-lot.

Passafist, can you let us know how spoilery the podcast is? I didn't listen to the last one because I'm trying to avoid spoilers, even previews and Lost Moments. Thanks.
I guess I'm glad the football this week is on Fox, not ABC, so that I can avoid the "Mother of all Lost previews." LOL

I went to see We Are Marshall last week with a girlfriend. There were a lot of women at this football movie. Gee, I wonder why? Anyway, it was better than I expected. It wasn't as melodramatic as I feared it would be. There was a lot of humor in it, and I really liked the use of drumline music during most of the football sequences. I would recommend it, but it will also translate fine to DVD if you just don't have the time while you are busy counting down the days until LOST. (Just over a month now. Yea!)

Passafist said...

It's safe! We didn't really discuss spoilers, you might want to skip the first 5 minutes, but that's about it.

maven said...

Hey, Memphish! Thanks (I think!) I'm just using a computer skill I learned this summer on TLE!

Dennis said...

Happy New Year everyone!

I updated the front page with new podcast info.

Maven, that's a great promo. Thanks for the link. There is also a smaller promo #1 from the same people here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ZmxAzA8Y-o

DesignerMama said...

Hello everyone! I haven't posted since our little summer game ended, but randomly enough, got a notice from mySpace that there was a post from our old friend Mandrake Wig today. Thought I'd share! ;-)

capcom said...

Hi All,

Hey Maven, I think that was the promo that I saw, #2. Thanks! Yowza. I am really letting down my promo-spoiler boundaries during this breaaaaaaaaaak. I must be hard up. No Memphish, you don't want to see that one if you are avoiding spoilers. The promo even addresses some of our questions in a way, since the end of the season 2.

I'm sure not happy about Bai Ling being added to the show. Although I have seen her to be a good actress in a number of movies (NOT including The Crow), her many recent skanky TV appearances have ruined seeing her in anything, for me. :-p Just my not-so-humble opinion.

Thanks for the Manny news Designer!

Have a good week LoCos! :o)

capcom said...

BTW, Manny is online right now and returning emails, if anyone is interested. Ah, just like the good old days! Bliss. :o)

I don't have the time to dream up some other message for a cryptic response. I'm pretty sure this won't lead us back into game territory. Sigh. I miss the early summer.

Dennis said...

Passafist,

I got two Lost puzzles for Christmas too! Which ones did you get? I got #1 (The Hatch) and #2 (The Others).

I have #2 put together if you need to see it complete. #2 was very hard to put together, because of all of the Jungle sections. I haven't started on #1 yet, but it looks easier.

When you finish the puzzle, you can coat the top with Mod Podge (they sell it at craft stores), then it is easier to move around so you can see the back.

I also got the Lost Game. Has anyone played this? It seems very confusing to me.

Hi everyone.

Thanks Maven for that Link. I was doing some searching on my own and came up with zip. I'll take that as my birthday gift today. ;o)

scoutpost said...

Hey everybody! Hope everyone has had a safe and Happy New Year! Gosh I miss you guys! Can't wait until LOST starts up again, I really didn't think it would be this hard. Haven't listened to the podcasts yet, so will have to do that soon...
Glad to see you all are still here- what an incredible bond LOST has become for a group of "strangers". Too cool.
Funny about those myspace and youTube stats from July- looks like we were part of history in the making! Wonder what the stats would've been like if TLE hadn't been going on. hmmm guess we'll never know.
Talk to ya'll again later.....

scoutpost said...

Oh! I meant to say Happy Birthday Cattygirl!!!!

maven said...

Let me add my Happy Birthday, Cattygirl!!!!

Scoutpost: Great to hear from you. The Lost Community is so great...it's such a "homey" way to stay in touch during this long, Lost drought (we're all going to be so busy starting Feb 7th, aren't we?)

Passafist: The Skypecast was pretty good (still some technical difficulties though!) A lot of good points were brought up and discussed. You guys are doing an awesome job. It was fun.

Dennis: What's the Lost game like? (Is it comparable to anything?)

Dennis said...

The closest thing I can compare it to would be a combination of Risk and a card game like Magic.

You travel around the island, and try to "lead" other characters. Along the way you "encounter" challenges that you must fight. You can find equipment or special powers that increase your ability.

The directions that came with the game were VERY confusing. We tried to play but we had no idea what we were doing. Fortunately, they have updated rules on the website, and a walk through which made things a lot clearer.

You can read more about it here: http://www.lostboardgame.com/


BTW, There is some interesting Lost info on the game cards. I'll try to scan some in when I get a chance.

memphish said...

Happy (now belated) Birthday Cattygirl!

Melissa_Lossa said...

Hey, cattygirl! We have the same birthday! ;)

Happy Birthday to you!


I have the first three Lost puzzles (The Hatch, The Others and The Numbers). Photos of all are on my blog, if anyone needs them. I also have a transcription of the info that appears on the back for The Hatch and The Others. I haven't done The Numbers yet, but I will try to this week.

Also, I used a poster frame to flip my puzzles. I put the clear plastic under the puzzle and the board on top, then flipped the whole thing. It worked pretty good.

I was hoping to get puzzle #4, Before the Crash for Christmas, but it doesn't appear to be out yet. Has anyone seen it?

Melissa_Lossa said...

Okay, I was wrong - I have transcription for The Hatch and The Numbers. I will do The Others this week.

Anonymous said...

Cattygirl and Melissa-Lossa here's wishing you a very Happy Birthday.

It all seems so quite, Lost and Prison Break are on break, Torchwood has finished even Christmas is over .... :(

I hate January....

InEnglandAndLost said...

Hi TLC.

Hope all is well... Keep checking back. think I may hibernate until LOST is back on!

Melissa_Lossa said...

Thanks, Dark Angel!

You're right, January is a bit depressing......

By the way - I finally had a chance to listen to a podcast over the break. It was so cool to hear your voice! Nice job!

Twinkle said...

Lost Puzzles! Why didn't I think of putting that on my Christmas list!?

Scoutpost: I had the same question about July and the popularity stats of YouTube and MySpace. I know we must have only been a small bit of the growing popularity of those sites, but we were F5ing all the time! I wonder if anyone official has put the connection with TLE together?

Over the last two days I watched nearly all the episodes of Heroes! (I'd only seen 1 episode before.) NBC has them downloadable right now. Man! Good stuff! Helped satisfy the part of me that's eager for Lost to start.

maven said...

Hey, melissa-lossa! Happy Birthday to you, too!

ib4uc said...

Hey LoCos. I haven't been on in a while but I wanted to wish Happy New Years to everyone.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Thanks, maven!

It was cool to hear your voice as well... voices are almost as good as putting faces with names! :)

memphish said...

Happy Birthday Melissa_lossa!

I thought I'd seen the fourth puzzle at my local bookstore. But looking around the internet, it doesn't look like it's out yet. Guess I dreamed it. The boxes claimed to have Season 3 spoilers. Do they? A simple yes/no will suffice.

Twinkle,
I've been watching Heroes too. It's fun, and I like that it doesn't squeeze my brain like Lost does. I miss that brain squeezing though.

There was a good entry on TV Squad about serialized TV yesterday. Here's the URL: http://www.tvsquad.com/2007/01/02/top-tv-stories-of-2006-everything-is-serialized/ I don't know how to link like Dennis and Maven. It talked about how people just couldn't commit to more than one show messing with their mind, and how you couldn't coherently watch something after you'd watched LOST because of the mush it turned your brain into. It forgot to mention, you can't watch anything after LOST because you are on the internet. LOL

Melissa_Lossa said...

Thanks, memphish!

I haven't really seen any season three spoilers on the puzzles. All of the images are from seasons 1 and 2, and the backs feature the blast door map. The only thing I can think of is that they show things that we've seen before that are more important than we realized?

Sorry, that was more than a yes/no. :) I guess the simple answer is, no!

Twinkle said...

Maybe it was watching all the episodes in a 36 hour period but the plot on Heroes seems to move faster than Lost. Lost's tidbit approach to answering secrets seems excruciating most of the time! But then curiosity is one of my weaknesses, which is why I read spoilers.

memphish said...

Funny Twinkle. I think the main difference about Heroes is that we know what could have been the big mystery, namely why these people have these powers. With Lost, to me the biggest mystery is what is up with this island, and after 2 1/2 years, I still don't have a clue.

I think you're also getting that new relationship buzz from Heroes, kind of like kissing a new boyfriend versus your old husband.

Twinkle said...

Maybe. I don't consider Heroes to be one of my regular shows but one that I'll catch up with now and then by reading online. I keep up with a couple others that way too. I'm one of those people who has to skim ahead in a book to get answers before being able to put it down and go to sleep. I've always found Lost excruciating and frustrating. The unanswered questions really bug me. And I keep watching it for that reason. :-D

maven said...

Twinkle/Memphish: I've been enjoying Heroes since it started...but only as pure entertainment. I don't go on the Heroes' message boards or blogs and dissect every scene, look for meaning in every piece of dialog and try to figure out the mystery. I'm just going with the flow and let the mystery unfold. No thought involved. That article is so right...I can only invest my "thinking" energies in one series. (And I've invested a lot in Lost! LOL) Heroes has moved ahead at a good pace, unveiling just the right amount of information (promos are, as usual, misleading and the show never really reveals all you're led to believe). The slow pace and more questions than answers approach on Lost is very aggravating, but, obviously we all still come back for more...don't we? My aggravation quota allows for only one show...Lost!

memphish said...

Agree Maven. And speaking of uncomplicated, I'm looking forward to Friday Night Lights tonight. High school is easy compared to Lost.

scoutpost said...

Hey guys!
Happy Birthday melissa-lossa!

Hey Twinkle thanks for the info on Heroes being downloadable on NBC right now. I've been wanting to watch it, too, but have always figured I wouldn't be able to catch up with the plot. I'll try it out, but like you guys, all my mental energy is reserved for LOST- no matter how frustrating it can be sometimes, I've invested too much time in it now to let it go til it's over! Plus, I just really like it.

CattyGirl said...

Thanks everyone and Happy birthday to you too melissa-lossa!

maven said...

A childhood friend of mine (who went on to become an award-winning television comedy writer...MASH, Cheers, Frazier, etc.) has a great blog. He just posted a very funny piece combining Lost, 24 and House. You guys should check it out. Here's the link to Ken Levine's blog.

Maven,

Thanks for the link to Ken's blog. I've been following it since you gave us Lost character summaries. That kind of stuff is what's keeping me going during the hiatus.

Dennis said...

Thanks for the article people!

I saw on TV last night that Matthew Fox will be on the cover of Men's Health Magazine next month (Feb). It's not on their website yet, but I'll keep a lookout for it.

Dennis said...

Attention people: Stop hounding Evangeline Lilly!

Evangeline Lilly's Lost quit threat from Life Style Extra.

memphish said...

Dennis,
I have to say my response to Evi is:
"Boo hoo," what the heck did you expect? I know you're from some small town in Canada, but I'm pretty sure they get People magazine there so you had some inkling of what it might be like to be an actress, and then you go and start dating some British guy and the British press is even worse than the US press." Sorry if that's a bit harsh.

I've seen on other websites that there's been some backtracking and saying she was taken out of context. I also know there's a sizable contingent of Kill Kate people out there, so she better watch out what she wishes for.

Hi All,

And "Howdy" and welcome back to all the lurkers and old TLECers who have posted during the holidays!

Thanks to everyone for sharing the links that you have found, it does indeed keep the Lostie heart warm during these cold, dark, long, break-weeks. :-(

And Happy B-Day to those having them!

I didn't think that the interview with Damon was too spoilery, or maybe it's just my lowered spoiler standards as of late. As usual, he doesn't give any secrets away, but he does mention things like "so-and-so" will have a big story in episode 10, or that we will hear a lot more about "whatever" in the middle of the season, or that we won't see anything more about "so-and-so" this season. Even though he doesn't give anything away (IMHO), it was an interesting article. But read with caution of you're spoiler-free.

As for Evi and her fame, I agree with Dennis, but fame did kind of come upon her unusually quickly. She probably expected that this odd-ball series would be a way for her to learn about TV acting and improve her acting chops, until the Big Job came along. "Surprise, surprise, surprise!", as Gomer Pyle would say. :-D Hopefully Dom can help her work it out. Let's just hope that she doesn't go the way of Shania Twain, getting so sick of the fans that made her a bazillionaire, that she says she feels she has to move to Switzerland just to get away from them. And Evi better get used to the fact that she will be expected to go to the Lost equivalent of Star Trek conventions for the rest of her life! :-D

And in my NOT so humble opinion, I think that article about people only being able to follow one heavy show at a time is typical of the networks' "mis-underestimating" TV viewers. The X-Files burned my brain out, but I still had to watch Millenium, The Lone Gunmen (brief, but sweet), The Pretender, JAG, Harsh Realm (understandably brief!), etc., all here and there in the same seasons. I dunno, maybe I just love wierd hour-long TV programs. But think about it, saying that viewers can only handle one serialized TV show, is like saying that they could only handle taking one college course at a time. The brain is a lot more adaptable than that I think?

Oh well, I'm wordy today, sorry. Hope everyone's week is going well!

There's a preview of Doc Jensen's newest theory on The Tail Section.
www.thetailsection.com It's up Admin's alley. He might want to use it for SOTL.

Doc's also asking people what one question they want him to ask the producers.

Anonymous said...

Can I also suggest you listen to this weeks episode of the generally speaking lost podcast!! Cliff has this amazing theory that pits Locke, Shannon, and Jack together. It's awesome!!!

Dennis said...

WEDNESDAY RATINGS

ABC dropped [to fourth place at 9:00 PM] with the premieres of "The Knights of Prosperity," (4.4 / 7), and "In Case of Emergency," (3.9 / 6). At 10:00 PM, "Primetime" also finished fourth (3.5 / 6)

HAHAHAHAHA ABC! How long until these shows are canceled?


BTW, Day Break's premiere numbers:

"Day Break" dropped [to second] from its lead-in, scoring an (8.0 / 12) in its first hour... At 10 p.m., "Day Break" slid [to third], finishing with a (6.0 / 10).

Dennis said...

I was just at Target, and they have the Lost Jigsaw puzzles on sale 50% off. Unfortunately, they only had #1 and #2, which I already have.

They were back in the toy clearance section. YMMV

capcom said...

BTW, has anyone come across any Canadian Lost Moments??????? The Canadian promos and previews were usually a little more interesting than the US clips, in the first two seasons. Just wondering......

maven said...

Lost got nominated for Best Series by The Producers Guild. Alas, nothing from the Screen Actors Guild!

capcom said...

SAG has the rep of being very clique-ish and short-sighted.

Cam794 said...

hey guys i wasnt able to listen to the live cast or be here for a couple of days cuz my keyboard was broken so just droping in cya yall later! :-D

Here are the pictures of my completed Lost Jigsaw Puzzle #2 "The Others"

Front and Back (glow-in-the-dark)

memphish said...

All right LoCos,

Doc Jensen is back. Check out his article. http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20006484,00.html
It's not spoilery though it does include one clarification by the producers of something we saw in Tale of Two Cities.

After reading the article maybe we could all pick a letter (you'll see what that means when you read it), and share what our one burning question is.

Anonymous said...

Does anyone now if there is a transcript of the article anywhere else as Entertainment Weekly is blocked from my work PC (which is strange as it is a US publication and I am working in the UK!)

Liked the Podcast which I heard last night, good to hear from TLCM and Maven.

With regards to the transmission of the numbers, my theory was that the Dharma Initiative needed a way to let the 'folks back home' know whether they had suceeded in changing the core values of the Valenzetti equation. As this was top secret stuff they could not just radio the fact they had done it therefore they transmitted the numbers constantly, if they managed to alter a value then the transmission would change with the new value. To anyone outside Dharma the transmission would be meaningless, just another number channel (there are loads of transmission of number sequences, you can find them if you have a short wave radio), but to those in thr know it would let them know the project had been a success. Just after the Lost Experience someone but this to Javier Grillo .... oh I can't spell his name, Javi aka DJ Dan on his own Blog. Javi confirmed that this was indeed the case and the theory was correct although I seemed to remember that he indicated that this would not be revealed in the actual show.

Dennis said...

Dark Angel, I put a mirror of the EW article here.


There is a new Lost Moment on the AMEX site.

Dennis said...

Memphish, great article! Thanks!

I'm an A, btw.

thinbluemime said...

Speaking of Javier Grillo-Marxuach, I recently started 2 threads in google groups referring to, or reguarding him and his personal views.

The first link here is of an interview he (Javi) did with IGN...very interesting IMO.

The second link is controversial, and may NOT be for Lost fans. It involves a September 11, 2001 connection with the Lost story line. VERY speculative on my part, but something to consider...especially with the NightLine Interview by Abrams, Cuse and Lindelof. I have not seen any mention of this interview in TLC.

Link One:
http://groups.google.com/group/alt.tv.lost/browse_frm/thread/2ba1c7e00e4f6463/a926636998f3ef15?lnk=gst&q=javier&rnum=2#a926636998f3ef15

YOU MAY have to scroll up to find the thread beginning.

(Just my 2 cents.....33 days till Lost begins again.... :)

maven said...

Thanks for the article, memphish:

I'm an A and I asked if anything we learned from the Lost Experience this summer will eventually figure into the tv show!

memphish said...

Glad y'all like the article. I'd have to say I'm still an A too, with a little bit of B tendencies.

I certainly can't wait until it is back on, and I was so glad the Mother of all Previews was not one of the commercials on Ugly Betty last night. I'm still trying to avoid that and the Lost Moments too. Okay, I cheated and saw LMs 5 and 6.

Maven, thanks again for the Ken Levine link. I think Part 2 of his Lost, 24, House article is even funnier than Part 1. Everyone should definitely check that out.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the link Dennis - well it probably won't surprise you all to know that I'm an A (well probaby an A*+ with cherries on it!)

Thinbluemime very interesting stuff, the parallels with the Book of the Dead can't be coincidence. I'm not sure about all the 9/11 stuff but I think as a non-American us Brits are kind of unfamiliar with the American reaction to 9/11 . I think to some extent we are more used to this sort of thing, right from the bombing of London in World War One and of course the Blitz that took apart London in WWII, we lived with decades of the IRA bombing and shooting and so when we had are terrorist attack in 2005 (the bus and underground bombs) I think we took the F@@@ You attitude and got on with life as normal and we don't really dwell on it.

I'm not trying to put down 9/11 which was probably the defining moment of the end of the twentieth century but I get really maddened when it is used as an excuse to clamp down on our freedom, OK so 3,000 people died; well 450,000 Brits and 418,000 Americans died in world war two (not forgetting the Canadians, Aussies, Indians etc etc) to preserve those freedoms and way of life. Now you get The Patriot Act and we get something like 3900 new laws from our wonderful Mr Blair. It is a terrible thing to see American Soldiers guarding concentration Camps instead of liberating them.

Ok rant over....

memphish said...

For those of you who like spoilers there is a new interview with Michael Emerson done by the guys at Comic News Insider. You can download the episode directly here: http://www.comicnewsinsider.com/

You can also find them on iTunes.

capcom said...

Thanks for the articles everyone! Especially the Doc Jensen one. I'm really starting to love that guy's brain! I am definitely a Type-A Lost fan, even though I myself, am a cranky patience-challenged blogger! So I will take that big bottle of downers from Mr. Type-E for my bad Lost withdrawals. :o) I don't know yet what question I would ask that wouldn't be the type of question that TPTB won't answer. Perhaps I would ask if they could show us an overall view of the island geography so we can get better bearings as to where everything is. Or whether the Swan station was totally destroyed....and if not, is there anything useful left in there for the Lostaways and the story? I really enjoyed the Swan!

Doc's take on Amazing Grace is, well, amazing. But I'm not sure that I follow him all the way down the theory path. The Swan orientation film seems to have been at the very least, telling the truth about punching in the numbers, as we saw when the whole thing went kaboom. Although it does seem as if the Pearl video was a big fat lie. It also seems to me as if the order to not use the computer for communication with anything outside the Swan, was a ploy to keep people as isolated as possible, ensuring no outside influences to obstruct their work and duties. We saw Michael use it for other than resetting the timer, and nothing happened. Doc's psychic theories sort of walk in line with my theory about the possibility of Smokey or other entities (Christian, horses, whispers, etc.), being manifestations like the Id Monster in the movie Forbidden Planet. I don't think that I'll be correct, but TPTB have borrowed from a lot of other things, so that's as possible as any other guesstimate I suppose.

DA, to understand 9/11, just think Pearl Harbor. And yes, it is different for the UK than for the US, we are more isolated from the enemy lines than the UK, which has always been surrounded by agressives throughout history. I thought that in the first season of the new Dr. Who, the Doctor put it well when explaining England's bravery in WWII...he said something about how (VERY paraphrased) the evil forces were taking down European countries one at a time, until one little island stood up and said, "No! Not here!" It was a very touching fact expressed in that short little dialogue of the episode.

Thanks again everyone for all the interesting info posted here! We seem to be keeping ourselves immersed in the Lost Universe during The Break, thanks to our community. And thanks to the Admins. :o)

capcom said...

BTW, that latest Lost Moment? Yuck. :-p Still, thanks Dennis.

capcom said...

Folks,

The Tailsection.com has an interesting preview from Oz-land, in the January 2, "view from across the pond" post. No spoilers, only scenes from season 1 thru 2.5, honest. But it's neat.

Ciao!

maven said...

Capcom: Agreed...the latest Lost Moment is yucky!

thinbluemime said...

dark angel, we do not disagree :)

The 9-11 attack, for the ones that died, was bad enough. The terror instilled in the survivors is what is devastating. Terror that induces citizens to surrender their thought process to protect their freedom, turns many into zombies... the walking dead.

One more thought to consider. Javi wrote for ABC's Lost, and was essentially an abc employee, since abc owns the rights to Lost. Javi's scathing, scorching evaluation of abc's news coverage via his blog entry
(He agreed with the Fox commentary, posting the full transcript and the commentary video)
indicates he doesn't agree with abc on some level concerning the reporting of events of 9-11.
He can now speak more freely since he no longer writes for abc.

While employed for abc, did Javi express his thoughts and feelings in a way that abc could not decypher?

Remember cyphers and glyphs were a highlight of the ARG summer of 2006, of which, Javi was a KEY player.

What am I suggesting?

Just look and listen to Lost, with a mind set, "Outside the Box", because the real Lost story might just be "Outside the Box.....the television box.....

I Love Lost, the characters, the writers, the music...and the fans, so I hope this is not offensive, just thought provoking....

CattyGirl said...

Hello again. I was just checking out my email from EW and clicked on the article Future Schlock, the 2007 Forecast. This paragraph made me laugh:

Jack Bauer will save the world again. But viewers find themselves disenfranchised midway through this season of 24 after it becomes clear that Jack is not even having to try that hard anymore, and is in fact just sort of strolling through the day like Pepe Le Pew, but with a gun. Meanwhile, American Idol's ratings continue to soar, inspiring an unheard-of network crossover special in which ABC pays AI judges and finalists to appear as a new tribe of Others on Lost. The kids perform a rousing medley of ''Let the Sun Shine In'' and ''Against All Odds,'' which lifts the spirits of the survivors, but all the unnecessary melisma wakes up one very angry polar bear, who — drawn by the scent of lip gloss, Diet Coke, and Nyquil — mauls Paula Abdul. Fox network heads, considering this a direct affront, rush So You Think You Can Survive on a Desert Island While Singing Popular Hits? onto the air, scheduling it for Wednesdays at 10.

memphish said...

Cattygirl, that's great. I think they AI folks need to be sure and include some cheery Brady Bunch songs in that medley. Time to Change might be especially appropriate for the Losties.

Meanwhile, everyone clear your schedule for next Saturday night: http://www.emmys.tv./events/2007/Lost.php
That's my anniversary, but hey, 17th isn't really that big. I'm sure my husband really wants to spend it with me glued to a webcast.

CattyGirl said...

Wow - that is going to be so neat! Thanks for the heads up memphish.

maven said...

Memphish: Thanks for that link to "An Evening With Lost"! That location is only about 15 min. from my house! If I had only known! Sounds like they expect a bigger crowd than they can accommodate anyways. Should I go and try to sneak in? Hahaha Oh well, webcast for me, too.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Dark Angel - amen. The events of 9/11 were horrifying, but the things that have happened in the US since are almost worse.

Politics over. :)

That clarification in the Doc Jensen article was interesting - and fit in perfectly with my idea that the Others are trying to guard themselves against some force on the island that can use your thoughts against you. I'd like to know if the Others are all taking the "vaccine."

And yes, the latest Lost moment was a little yucky... and more than a little random!

ExperimentalFilm said...

just want everyone to know that i haven't forgotten about the community, and i still watch my lost dvds every day .

Welcome back experimental. :o)

FYSB said...

Happy January LoCo! Haven't posted in a while, but I do check in from time to time. EF...it was great to see your name on the board again!

DA...I thought of you this weekend as I expanded my computer skills to torrent. Woohoo! Who needs continuing education classes when you have TLEC and LoCo.

Does anyone here watch Veronica Mars? (I know, we're "Lost" people, but I've recently discovered it and it's really smart and funny and actually solves its mysteries. Crazy.)


wv: gcoke...is blogger pushing drugs?

CattyGirl said...

fysb - how did you learn torrent? I'd like to, but I don't know where to start looking for info.

FYSB said...

cattygirl, try torrentspy.com. there's a good help faq there that walks you through the process, terminology and software options. the faq also helped me work through some bugs once i got everything loaded. it's pretty easy. i daresay darkangel may have some suggestions as well.

capcom said...

Hi FYSB, Happy 2007 too you as well!

BTW, Mr. Admin, how is your 2007 going so far? Well, I hope. Also I would like to say, I'm sure on behalf of the LoCos as well, thanks for keeping this blog going for us even though life has kept you from participating as much as you would like to. Most of the time when people start converstional blogs, and then life throws into the mix events that put the blog at the low end of the priority list, they shut the blogs down. Thanks very much for keeping this one alive so that all of the LoCos can continue to wax philosophical (and complain!) :o) about Lost with each other in such an intelligent and civilized forum. And thanks to your assistant Admins, who have helped you to be able to keep this blog alive and current. All the LoCos are looking forward to Lost Community Blog 2007 as much as I am, I'm sure!

Have a good week everyone! :o)

memphish said...

Okay LoCos, here's something someone creative can do to while away the less than 1 month remaining on hiatus. I found a link to a Bingo board someone has created for the show 24. You can see it here: http://plutor.org/24/bingo.html

Any takers to make one for our favorite show? If it was for watching your Season 1 and 2 DVDs you'd certainly have to include a square for Michael saying "Walt," or "my son," or "my boy."

capcom said...

Hey Memphish, that's funny. You could even have squares for anytime Michael yells instead of talking normally. I assume that the game is played in more or less the same way as the TV Drinking Games?

For a Lost game season 3, I would include squares for every time: Jack makes a mean/goofy Jack-face; Kate squints; of course, Kate runs; Claire says, "the bai-bee"; Charlie gets jealous; Desmond looks gorgeous...er, has a premonition -- and you could go crazy with the phrases like: what makes you think I'll trust you/them; you can't tell me what to do; see you on the other side, the numbers are bad, I'm gonna kill you/him; I'm not Jack, etc. Oh what fun! :o) The possiblities are endless really. But we might have to have character-centric cards, for when the episode is mostly about one person, or else some squares would never get filled during some shows since only half of our intrepid islanders seem to show up on each episode now.

Ciao.

misskitty211980 said...

Hey guys. I've been a lurker for a while now, but now that I got an MP3 player for Christmas and can listen to the podcasts, I'm gonna try to join in more often.

FYSB~~I just recently saw episode 1 and 2 of Veronica Mars and was impressed. A friend and I are swapping favorite shows; I'm watching Veronica and she's watching LOST.

maven said...

Hey, Misskitty211908: Congrats on de-lurking! And welcome to LoCos! Once you start posting you can't stop! LOL

Hi to FYSB and Experimentalfilm! Great to see some "old-timers" here.

Memphish: Would Lost Bingo be "Lost-O"?

memphish said...

Maven, I like the idea of L-O-S-T-O.

Capcom, I like your suggestions. How about adding a space for Jin says some English word and Hurley says Dude. You'd certainly need a space or spaces for the appearance of the numbers, one for a light/dark reference, Sawyer gives out a nickname, Sawyer reads a new book. The possibilities are endless. We could all have our own individual cards and cry out LOST-O on the blog when we hit.

It reminds me of something we did in law school. In Torts the professor called on a lot of people every class, so we made Bingo cards with people's names on them. When you got a Bingo, you had to get the professor to call on you and use the designated winning word in a sentence to signal to the rest of the players that you had Bingo. It was always a lot of fun.

Welcome Misskitty211908!

NEW MANDRAKE WIG POST:

I want to thank everyone for joining in and dropping me notes. I do miss you all. Maybe we can have some fun this summer?
Thanks and love,

It looks like TLE will be on again for the summer.

Dennis said...

This is off-topic, but Microsoft has a new ARG-style game for their Vista Launch. It's called The Vanishing Point.

The top prize is a Trip into Space!!

You can play the game here: http://www.vanishingpointgame.com/. When you register, please use me as a reference :) lostchibbie@yahoo.com

This could be something fun to to over the next 30 days until Lost starts. Maybe we can all team up...

Hi Guys,

Unfortunately I won't be around so much on the blogger as blogger is now blocked at work. I can use a proxy server to read the blog but I can't find a way to log in through a proxy server (so if anyone knows an online SSL Proxy Server please let me know)

FYSB and Cattygirl I use µTorrent which you can find here . I search for torrents at:

µTorrent Search
Mininova

and

The Pirate Bay

I also use a piece of software called Torrent Harvester which searches hundreds of sites.

If you have a wireless router you may need to configureit to set up port forwarding to allow µTorrent access, you can find out how to do this at Port Forward.Com

I hope that helps, If you want any more help give me a shout.

thinbluemime said...

Here are a couple thoughts that may be far fetched, but entertaining nontheless.

Sometime ago I blogged how Hurley's Numbers might be an actual date in real time. Details here:
http://users.newblog.com/thinbluemime/?post_id=11383

Using March 4, 1948 as a starting point, I have discovered some close connections to the Lost storyline.
Both postings involve comic book characters.

The first is titled "Walt's Comic" and IS NOT what you might think it is:
http://groups.google.com/group/alt.tv.lost/browse_frm/thread/613e66c75b062581/4547915d8280080a#4547915d8280080a

The second is from a 1948 Superman's Adventure radio show titled "The Adventures of Superman - Kingdom Under The Sea"
http://groups.google.com/group/alt.tv.lost/browse_frm/thread/1c3a07bb79b2b185/4b9f51e1fdbb96de#4b9f51e1fdbb96de

Both are a serious "fun take" on possible tie-ins and original inspiration for the Lost mythology.

BTW, at my blog, I have found MANY "March 4, 1948" tie-ins to the Lost story, so have fun reading during these few weeks before season 3 begins again.

MissKitty said: A friend and I are swapping favorite shows; I'm watching Veronica and she's watching LOST.

What an awesome display of friendship! Cool idea! Unfortunately the ones we watch regularly on TV are not the ones we buy on DVD. Still I've been trying to beg people into watching our Firefly, Stargate, Battlestar Gallactica DVD's. When, oh when, will BSG season 2 come out as one reasonably priced set!?

Sorry for the outburst. *resume lurking* :-)

Shhhh... Its me Dark Angel in disguise


I found an old blogger account that I can use through a proxy server as I have not converted itto a google account :)

A quick change and DA will be back posting from work

FYSB said...

Ralphied by tptb...that is hilarious! Which one is the superhero and which one is the nebbish alter ego???? Thanks for the torrent info whoever you are.

And static, please, please delete that spoiler. You may want to check the forum for spoiler discussions.

I just finished Veronica Mars Season One. I HIGHLY recommend it. Especially since we still have a month to kill before the marathon.

As for Dennis' TLE alert, I feel like I just walked out of Betty Ford and found my dealer waiting out front in a limo.

Dark Angel said...

Hi FYSB

The Ralphied by TPTB is a hang over from the Lost Experience days. I have now mirrored my google account across to it so I can access the blogger through a proxy server and get round the blocking software at work.

Very naughty but I feel quite pleased with myself, since TLE I seem to have decided things are not impossible just a challenge :)

maven said...

Static13: I will also add my voice to the "please delete your comment"...no spoilers allowed here!

DA (aka Ralphed by tptb): We knew you would find a way!

Dennis: I took a peak at your link for The Vanishing Point. It looks interesting and confusing. But, I don't know...I'm so ARGed out!

FYSB: You are still so funny! Keep them coming.

FYSB said...

Wow DarkAngel, please always use your powers for good, not evil.

Hey Maven!

memphish said...

I have to say I'm not sorry I saw Static's spoiler, but thanks for removing it.

I'm so glad Dark UFO is apparently back. I found this from his site.
http://www.geocities.com/jleggett7/lostpics.htm Just a little Lost humor to get us through the day.

FYSB said...

Oh, and hello misskitty! Welcome to posting. Let me know what you think of Veronica as you make your way through the season.

My random votes for LostBingo squares:

It rains and something bad DOESNT happen (hee, like that would take place)

Charlie sings You All Everbody

Sayid tortures someone

Someone calls Sawyer "James Ford"

Someone has the opportunity to ask a clarifying question and actually ASKS it

An Other beats Sawyer (this would be that "free" square i think)

Dennis said...

No word from Static13, so I deleted the spoiler.

FYSB said... As for Dennis' TLE alert, I feel like I just walked out of Betty Ford and found my dealer waiting out front in a limo.

Don't worry dear, the first ARG is free!

maven said...I took a peak at your link for The Vanishing Point. It looks interesting and confusing. But, I don't know...I'm so ARGed out!

It's more puzzle solving, less hacking. You have to watch the Event video for clues to help with the puzzles. Without giving too much away, you generally solve part of the puzzle, then it will ask you a question based on something in the video.

So far I've solved 2 of the puzzles (sundial, gears), and almost have 3 more solved (watch springs, mantle clock, pocket watches). I started to make a blog where I was going to post my answers, but I found a website that already has all of the answers. :( It's a wiki like Lostpedia, so it also has a lot of background info. The clues aren't as flushed out as what I was doing... they pretty much just give you the answer (there may be some TLE-style cheating going on!). I'm torn on whether to continue my blog... :(

I'm still going to try to solve all the puzzles myself. The Game ends at the end of the month, so it will be something interesting to do until Lost starts again (28 Days!)

BTW, Like TLE, there are going to be LIVE events in Los Angeles, Miami, Austin, Phoenix, Arizona, San Francisco, Seattle, Singapore, Sydney, Berlin, London, Toronto. Here is the schedule for those that live in one of these cities.

scoutpost said...

Hey everybody!
FYSB good to see you again!
DA- way to go- stickin it to the man! hehe
Man when LOST went off I was kind of ready for a break, but after the holidays and now my last bit of company is leaving tomorrow, I am ready for all things LOST!
Another TLE this summer?! Game ON! Although, I do feel a little like you FYSB- too funny.
Maybe I should check out that Vanishing Point ARG since it actually has an event in Phoenix, unlike another ARG I knew...no I'm not still bitter about that.
Talk to ya'll more in the upcoming days....the clock is ticking!

Ok one last thing. I had a theory that the more you comment, the longer your WV's become- well since I haven't been on much lately, my WV's are now only 5 letters long (they used to be 9 letters all the time). hmmm

maven said...

Memphish: Thanks for that link...very entertaining! (BTW: Saw you posted on Ken's blog.)

Scoutpost: I think we're all getting a little bit antsy for Feb 7th to roll around, aren't we? I keep checking all the Lost-related sites for any info. Like your WV theory...I always look to see if the random letters make a real word! Glad to see more and more of us "old timers" are checking in.

ib4uc said...

Hi everyone. Been doing more lurking than posting these past couple of months.

fysb... good to see you're still around and as always, making me laugh out loud. My boss is going to ask one day what is so funny.

I have a feeling Microsoft's budget is a little bit bigger than ABC's. Although, I doubt they will be handing out free chocolate. :)

I would go if there was one near me - it's supposed to be a "spectacular real world event". I was hoping to go to Vegas for CES, but I would have probably been there and missed it anyways :)

JGZ350 said...

Hello all-

maven, da, dennis, cattygirl, fysb how have you been?

I have been in lurk mode for the most part during the break and thought I would check in and say hey. Can't wait for Lost to return on 2/7/07. I've been keeping up with loco, the podcasts, which are very good btw, and just the thought of TLE part 2 this summer was an unexpected surprise. Just reading that gave me such a rush.

With 'House' returning and '24' starting up this Sunday, I think the next four weeks will fly by and Lost will be here before you know it.

Goodnight Mrs.Calabash's daughter,
wherever you are.

Twinkle said...

Nice one, Village.

Yes, hello to all of you too! Say, where do the spoiler freaks hang out now? The message board is quiet. Not that we're all on at the same time anymore, but does anyone miss chat?

Let's take a vote.

1 - What has Mittlework been doing with his free time?

A) What free time? He's running from Interpol.

B) Working on a spaceship than can take exactly 30% of us into space

C) Undercover as a concessioner at the San Diego Zoo, so he can be close to the monkeys

D) Other - Share your own.


And 2 - Ponytail or no ponytail in ARG 2?

maven said...

D) He's getting an "Extreme Makeover" on ABC! His family and friends will never recognize him! LOL

scoutpost said...

Hey Twinkle!
#1- I'll say answer C. But he better watch out for monkeys flinging Joop poop!

and
#2- I say the ponytail will be gone, but instead he will be sporting a nice fu man chu.

I too miss the chat room. Remember the days when we spent hours playing the trivia bot? Ah those were the days!

I have another square for LOST-O...let me know if you guys think I'm off here: Anytime there is a medical emergency and Jack yells "Get me some water!". As though water is the miracle cure for whatever ails you. :-)

I'm so excited about another ARG! And I agree with Maven about Mittlework's whereabouts. That's too funny!

Dark Angel said...

Hi Guys,

Ovalited up and ready for TLE 2 (wait a second there's season 3 of Lost to go first)

Great to see everyone here - Misskitty - nice one, welcome to TLC

Scoutpost I've been hanging out in the spoiler section of The Fuselage, not as good as TLC obviously but theres still some intelligent discussion there.

Certianly good to see Dark UFO back, I got an email from him the other day and he is currently busy updating his blog.

Morning everyone,

I wanted to apologize for my post yesterday... sorry. I thought it was more a rumor than a spoiler. As for real spoilers wait until the screener of Porland gets leaked on the "tubes." I'm going to try and avoid it.

ib4uc said...

Mmmmm, Mittlewerk. That sneaky little devil. Probably off getting new blood again hoping this time it will not only extend his life but will change his appearance. Maybe he'll come back as a woman...

Oh, and the ponytail, wouldn't it be funny if he sported braided pigtails, kinda like Willie Nelson?

Anonymous said...

Hi Everyone! I just wanted to pop in and say hello! It's been a long time. I hope everyone is well. I miss you all! Do you know if there is an ARG planned for this summer?

Hi! It's looking like there will be. The only "official" thing I have heard so far is in the latest post from Mandrake Wig:

I want to thank everyone for joining in and dropping me notes. I do miss you all. Maybe we can have some fun this summer?
Thanks and love,
Manny

maven said...

ib4uc and wopa: Long time no see! Great to hear from you both!

I'm more than ready for ARG-2! But, did I miss something? Besides Manny's innuendo, is there any other solid evidence that TLE will be continuing?

capcom said...

Hi All! Wow, I get sick and miss one day of checking the blog and it gets all filled up with great posts from everyone, old and new!!

Many interesting comments by one and all. I certainly hope that Mittlejerk's rat-tail is gone-o if TLE starts up again. Very undignified for a scientist to have a mullet-ponytail. That characteristic alone would say to me that he is truly not a genuine scientist. I think that we will find Mittlejerk all messed up and crazy, hiding in a spider-hole like Saddam! :o)

Heh, funny how TPTB have a way of getting us to wishing our lives away! We wish for the fall season to hurry up and start; we wish for February to hurry up and get here; and now we will be wishing for a summer of possibly TLE Part Deux to hurry and begin. TPTB have created some rabid fans of us, for sure.

Concerning Manny, why do you all think that a fictitious character from the commercial side of the TLE would resurface (wasn't Manny a part of the Verizon side of it all?)??? I mean, instead of say, RACHEL, or Hanso, who were actual characters from the game? It was nice hearing from him. I wonder who he really is? He must have thought that the game was fun too.

Great ideas for our L-O-S-T-O game!

Ciao!

ib4uc said...

Regarding TLE Part II (if it actually happens) I hope TPTB have learned from the first one. Oh, how we all forget how awful the ending was this past summer but I would be estatic if it happens this summer, as I'm sure many Locos will be. It's good to see the enthusiam for another round.

capcom said...

I haven't forgotten IB4! And I think that's why we are craving so much for a second part -- for the finish of what TPTB began last summer, but failed in delivering a solid ending for, for whatever reasons.

scoutpost said...

Wow! Another TLE! That would be so great, I hope it's true, but that is a good point about Manny- why would he be the one to start dropping hints about another ARG?
If it does turn out to be true, I too hope that TPTB would make some adjustments and handle a second ARG better, but really, now that it's all over, my main memory is the fun that I had with all you guys. So I really hope they do another one, I would love to spend the summer playing with you guys again (even if it is as boring as a 30 day long glyph hunt).

P.S. My WV's have worked their way up to 8 letters now nearly proving my theory- NOT! hehe
WV= nwknmydr= "knock on my door"?

misskitty211980 said...

Yeah, even though the end was disappointing, I'd love for there to be a part two to TLE. I mean, I spent all this money getting the internet connection (since they took ours away at work) and it would be lovely to actually participate with you guys while figuring everything out. Instead of just lurking like I did last summer, since our work internet blocked all the fun stuff.

Oooh. I'm so excited thinking about it...now I have to go pee! ;-)

capcom said...

Ditto Scout about the TLEC fun!

But let TPTB be warned......we are on to them now, we (the LoCos) have a vast intelligence network developed, and they'd better be careful to not release a clue before it can be used or inputted!! In other words, if they under-estimate us again even close to how they did last time, with what we know now, we will walk all over this game! Heehee! :o)

Twinkle said...

Your answers are soo funny, everbody! Hey, ib4uc, maybe Willie Nelson *is* Mittlework before his extended life treatments! Then Mittlework would be in Austin, TX on a ranch somewhere.

As for Manny, I'm not sure he's actually telling us something. Sounds more like some intern would like to keep up the fun just like we would.

I wonder why they gave the ARG to Javi when he was the one writer who wasn't coming back? Is there anyone left who knows how to do/has energy for an ARG? And why let us bond with someone on staff who's no longer on staff? That's a bummer. Javi, we miss you!

How did they get word out last year that there would be an ARG? I know I heard about it from a yahoo group I was part of. You would think if they were doing another one, that they would announce it the same way. Guess I won't get my hopes up just yet, but it would be really cool. Maybe I should make plans to be at Comic Con this year.

ib4uc said...

scoutpost... I think I first heard about TLE last year from the ABC website. But it wasn't until late spring, maybe after the season finale of Lost, that I first heard about it.

maven said...

Scoutpost: I first heard about TLE in a newspaper article saying that it would start in May ('06), and it was very vague but intriguing. There are sooooo many lose ends from TLE-1, they HAVE to do Part 2! And, hopefully, they've learned a lot from their continuity errors.

maven said...

Just saw a new Pinesol cleaner commercial in which a lady is listening to the radio and getting her lottery numbers: The announcer says: "The final number is 42! If you have those numbers...." and she starts screaming! (The husband comments on how good the house smells.) Just thought it was was funny...my ears perked up on the number 42!

Dennis said...

scoutpost said...How did they get word out last year that there would be an ARG?

I just checked out Lostpedia, and they reference a NYT article that I posted, in another forum. LOL.

The article was dated April 24, one month before the end of Lost's Season 2 (May 24), and about two weeks before TLE officially began (May 5). BTW, ComicCon wasn't until Stage 3, which started July 22.


If you read the article, it's funny to look at some of the comments speculating on what the game is going to be about. :)

FYI: The Writer's Guild has nominated LOST for Best Dramatic Series.
