"LOST MOMENTS" & PROMOS - A SUMMARY OF THE HIATUS











Over the course of the break, we've been given by ABC several moments to chew on and digest in anticipation of the first ever 16 episode run of our favorite TV show. Here is a summary of what we've got heading into the last leg of Season 3:

Lost Moments:
Lost Moment #1, Lost Moment #2, Lost Moment #3, Lost Moment #4, Lost Moment #5, Lost Moment #6, Lost Moment #7, Lost Moment #8, Lost Moment #9, Lost Moment #10

Promos:
Promo #1, Promo #2, Promo #3, Promo #4, Promo #5

We're getting close! Get psyched about the upcoming Episode 10 of "The Lost Community Podcast" and the excitement in store for us on February 7th!

14 More Days!

WooHoo!!!!

DeDJeZTeR said...

Thanx for the new thread Admin.

Looking forward to all the good things to come and the discussion that follows.

Thrasher76 said...

Hey all, I thought I would drop by as a married old guy and say hello!! I can't wait for the new season to start. We just finished watching the rest of the first part of this season to be refreshed!!!

cyberyang said...

I can't wait till the new episodes!
It's a shame ABC didn't keep Day Break....I was enjoying it.

JGZ350 said...

Good morning Locos!

Hey Trasher,
Great idea on getting 'refreshed' by watching the first six episodes. I think I will get 'refreshed' too.
I am trying not to get to amped about the new episode coming up, but it's really hard not too. I wait patiently for 2/7/07, yeah right!

Cyberyang-
I feel you on Day Break, I want to know how it ends and I was really getting into that show. I liked it because it definitely had an 'X-File' feel to it. Would have been cool to see the remaining episodes in HDTV. Oh well, starting 1/29/07 you can watch a new episode of daybreak on abc.com. So, I'm definitely looking forward to that.

DeDJeZTeR said...

Cyberyang,
Just so you know.
ABC is finishing Daybreak on their website, so fret not you can still watch if you like.
New episodes on Mondays.

ib4uc said...

dennis... Thanks for the new thread and the Lost Moments and Promo videos. Watching them again has got me so psyched for the season to start up again, as I'm sure everyone else is also.

capcom said...

Hi All!

Here's some real-life news, in the "Go Alex" category: Just saw on TV today that the police in Tijuana don't have enough firearms available to them, so they are shooting criminals with sling-shots!! Cracked me up! :o)

And to carry over from the last thread:

Hey Chucklez, you can speculate till the cows come home over here, we like to debate theories! As far as The End, I could imagine that even if TPTB don't have an ending made up just yet to wrap up the whole magilla, they can still have solid directions for all the characters to go in the mean time. Say for instance, they know what they want to happen with the stations, the Others, The Love Triangles, etc., but could still not be sure if everyone will get rescued in the final Ep. At least I HOPE that TPTB have some solid ideas for those things. I'm sure they do. TV is art after all, and when you start a piece of art, the artist should know the general direction for the piece, but should also be open to serendipitous inspiration as the story/canvas/whatever advances and moves toward completion. I guess what I'm trying to say is that it doesn't worry me too much if TPTB's story ideas are, or are not, solidified too far in advance of the episodes that are finished. They seem like good writers, and I actually hope that they do add more and more ideas to the mix as they go, that aren't or weren't in the original plan. And who's to say that they can't change what they meant to do if they think up something better? (( OR, if they have to change a story's direction because we've already figured it out and they need to think of something new to surprise us, al la TLE! )) :o)

Re: the Heroes game; I don't have a text-phone-thingy, and I did not get the black screen after I registered with the Paper company. Is there any other way to get that if you can't text or whatever? I really shouldn't be getting into this thing. Oh well, I'm sure I'll forget all about it when Lost starts up and we are once again blogging like maniacs about the Eps! BTW, the Paper company will get back to us in a few weeks???? Sheesh, this will be slower than the end of TLE! Not very appealing to me.

Hey Thrasher, how's married life treatin' ya? The proverbial newly-wed question, right? Bet you heard it a million times by now. :o)

Ciao!

scoutpost said...

New thread-wow! Been a long time. Thrasher- good to hear from you again.
I'm getting really excited about the rest of season 3- 14 more days- 2 weeks!

memphish said...

Thanks for the thread Dennis, but I have to say I find it ironic given the spoiler rules.

Is is 2/7 yet? I can't wait.

Dennis said...


scoutpost said...
14 more days- 2 weeks!

1 fortnight!

memphish said... Thanks for the thread Dennis, but I have to say I find it ironic given the spoiler rules.

It was all David. But, I did get my first "First" at LoCo, and without cheating!

capcom said...

Yes, thanks Admins for the Moments and Promos wrapup thread, nice idea!

Isn't it only a spoiling-spoiler here if it's thrust onto your eyeballs without your fore-knowledge? If you have made the choice to click to see the promos it's not technically spoiled for a person, right? Well, I think it was a good idea to get them all in one place now that we're near the last leg of The Break. I guess I'll be going over them all one more time, now that it's so easy to.

I do however think that the Moments clips are going to make me frustrated when they aren't all answered in the first episode! Because don't the Moments come from all the season 3 eps, not just the first one? Geez, I'm never happy. :o)

Cheers!

chucklez3 said...

thanks capcom!!!

seeing as we don't truly KNOW anything and it hasn't been "LAID OUT" for us as of yet.........that's comforting.

if you go here: http://rbrefugees.blogspot.com/

look in the most recent set of comments, you'll see some of my theories. and of course, the creator of that blog tries to shoot me down, but offers nothing other than "the producers said......the podcasts said...." rather than coming with ANYTHING reasonable on his own.

and as i said over there......i trust NO ONE until the "end" has been presented to us.

side note: lostnuts and i met during the experience and have been seriously dating since November. And I'm moving near her soon and we're planning (maybe a year or so away) on perhaps taking our relationship to the ultimate step.

anyway.....maybe we'll get put on the DVD as a couple that met because of it and got married. hahahaha. We've even discussed the honeymoon being in Australia.


thanks again for the "open door" policy.

hahaha

chucklez3 said...

hey admin. long time, no speak!

Administrator said...

My understanding was that it was generally agreed upon that, during the hiatus, the "Lost Moments" and any promos aired on ABC in the U.S. would not be considered spoiler content on this blog.

I'm sorry if anyone was confused.

Administrator said...

hey chucklez! I can't believe it about you and "lostnuts"...that is so cool. As a tribute to my immaturity, I must note that I still cannot read, type, or speak her screen name without giggling.

Melissa_Lossa said...

That's it - TLE is a bona fide cultural phenomenon. We officially have a couple that met and fell in love during the experience! Congrats!

Oh, and Thrasher - as a two year newlywed myself, prepare yourself to hear these two questions over and over again:

1) When are you going to buy a house?
2) Are you going to have any kids?

chucklez3 said...

hahahaha..........sweet.

yeah. before i met her, didn't know she was a guy. hahaha


collectively sometimes, we're known as "chuck-nuts"
hahaha

chucklez3 said...

thanks melissa. yeah, very happy. love her to death. i see her on most weekends right now until i can move my butt up there. gotta get work up there where she is and a roommate first, to begin with anyway.

i'm in virginia and she's in jersey. 800 miles roundtrip like every other weekend

ib4uc said...

chucklez3... Love the "chuck-nuts" Now that's funny. Congrats!

Admin... good to see you're still around and hope things are going OK with you.

Melissa_Lossa said...

That's so sweet! And chuck-nuts is too funny. :)

Glad to see we're starting to get some life back in the blog here! It's nice to hear from everyone again. :)

chucklez3 said...

i'm good ib4uc. thanks.

heck, life ANYWHERE for that matter. hahaha

DeDJeZTeR said...

Damn Chuckie,
I also met her during TLE and even walked her to her car as to make sure nothing happened on her way out of Central Park.... Good to know there is someone else from the LOCO's looking out for her now. She was a real cool chick and I think it's cool that you met through the game. Enjoy and Tell her Ded said Hi... lol

DeDJeZTeR said...

Oh and I saw the warning at rbr... I know how to handle myself over there don't you worry. They ain't got nuttin on me.
I'm the shizzzznit... lol
(that's rap for $HIT)

chucklez3 said...

the warning was referring to the way you acted over there before.

that's all.

Yeah i know about the central park thing. i thanked you. remember? we were "bonding" if you will THEN.

and i'm aware that shizznit came from the hood. i grew up in the projects.

btw.....doesn't come from "rap". rap and hip hop came from disco and the hood.......evolving to what we have now.

haha

anyway.....i gotta' run

good to see everyone!!

later,
chuck

Dennis said...

Has anyone know if the Lost Jigsaw Puzzle #4 (Before The Crash) is available for sale yet?

I read in another forum that someone saw all four Lost puzzles in a Walt Disney World gift shop.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Dennis - I still haven't seen that fourth puzzle anywhere, and no one has it online. I wouldn't be surprised if DIsney had it first... but I also wouldn't be surprised if that person was mistaken. :)

I'm anxiously awaiting it, though!

scoutpost said...

I was in Barnes and Noble last week, specifically looking at the puzzles and didn't see #4...although a lot can happen in a week I guess.

Hey Dennis- liked the fortnight comment- I forgot that one! Sounds so close when you say, only 1 more fortnight until LOST!

Congrats to "Chuck-nuts"! That is so cool. What a story to tell people when they ask how you met! Good luck with the move/job thing.

Hey Admin! Good to hear from you.
It is good to start seeing a little life back in the ole blog. I haven't used f5 in soooo long.

maven said...

Wow! I'm gone all day and so much happens here. A new thread! Thanks, Admin...good idea to wrap up the hiatus as we get closer and closer to the 7th.

Hey, Thrasher: Great to see you around now that you're an old, married man! LOL Guess what? I just found out I'm going to be a Grandma! My son and daughter-in-law just told us the great news!

Love the story of "Chuck-nuts". TLE was good for something!

memphish said...

Maven that is great news! Guess the nuclear explosion in Valencia was not so bad. LOL.

Congratulations Chuck-nuts. Hope everything goes well.

And thanks Admin for the new thread. Boy it loads better. Less than a fortnight until LOST now. Yeah!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Humm
That's the first time I've seen promo's 1 and 4 they haven't been aired in my area. Pretty cool all these promos and Lost Moments are getting me pretty exited for the show to start back up again.

LuckyGuyLikeMe said...

Whoa! Thanks for the new thread Admin!

I agree scoutpost, it was so nice to see some life back in the Lost Community. I was very excited when I saw there was a new thread. Reminds me of old times...

Dark Angel said...

Hi Guys,

A TLE romance - now that is cool :)

Scoutpost - Love the new Avatar

Just popping in really to say Hi, I was off work yesterday so I have a lot to catchup on. Going to record my audio for the next podcast tonight :)

see y'all round

DA

Dennis said...

Good Morning Everyone!

13 more days to Lost!!!

chucklez3 said...

morning.

Dennis said...

BTW, they do NOT have the Lost Puzzle #4 at WDW - only the first three.

americanpi said...

WOO HOO!!! Cannot wait

CattyGirl said...

Hello all. Lots of reading to do here, but I finally caught up. Figures that my last post was at the bottom of the last comments... and it was about the Lost moments and promos. ha!

Thrasher - good to see that you are still popping in here once and awhile.

BarbaraJay said...

Good morning and, yes, I am psyched! Santa Claus gave us Tivo for Christmas, so I'm going to watch the new episodes over and over and over.

It's great seeing you all. I've been keeping up with the posts, just had nothing too interesting to say.

scoutpost said...

Morning all! Less than 2 weeks (1 fortnight) til LOST!

Dark Angel said...
Scoutpost - Love the new Avatar

Thanks- I think I have now surpassed Thrasher with the amount of times I've changed my avatar! Think I'll stick with this one for a while- love Jean Grey. I just recently saw all three X-Men movies for the first time (I'm a little behind). I loved them and am sad that the 3rd is supposedly the last- I mean would it kill Hugh Jackman to pretend to be Wolverine for the rest of his life?! LOL Anyway- I have been surprised by my love for movies made about Marvel comic characters- I never made the connection until recently that all these superhero movies that I'd developed such an obsession about were all Marvel comics. Since TLE and LoCo, I've broadened my horizons in regards to sci fi and comics, etc. So- I'd like to thank this community (in true Academy award fashion) for helping me unleash my inner geek.

maven said...

Morning all: Great to see more and more action here...it actually takes some time now to catch up when I check in! LOL Hope we get more and more as we get closer to L-Day (Lost Day - Feb. 7th), and more and more old regulars, too!

Like your avatar, Scoutpost. I think I might be among the few that have never changed theirs!

DeDJeZTeR said...

Scoutpost,
Hugh will be starring on his own in a solo Wolverine movie... so keep your eyes out for it...

chucklez3 said...

and there's also a magneto solo feature coming too.

CattyGirl said...

I thought there was a Gambit feature coming with Josh Holloway.

chucklez3 said...

it's possible, but last rumor was that gambit might be in the wolverine movie

chucklez3 said...

so you ladie MIGHT get a double-dip of "yummy" in one film.

capcom said...

Hi All, and I mean ALL (except for FYSB and Fenris)!!! So many LoCo peeps are coming back, yay!

Scoutpost said: "...would it kill Hugh Jackman to pretend to be Wolverine for the rest of his life?!" OH YEAH, Scout, a big Mega-Dittos on that one! :-D Let's give the casting personnel an Oscar for casting that part perfectly. Ded, that would be great if they did solo X-Men projects, if they are not going to do any ensemble movies anymore. They could also throw in a cameo of one or two other characters, as well. BTW, I still don't see Nicolas Cage as Ghostrider, even after seeing the preview. Blech. Just my not-so-humble opinion.

Sheesh, I have to go check out that Rachel-fugees blog, I haven't been there in a while, cuz they got boring. Now they're mean? Bprbprpbprpbpbprprpbpprppppp! :-p

Hope everyone's having a good week!

scoutpost said...

Wow! you guys have made my day by telling me about the Wolverine movie! I will look forward to that! And, if Josh H. is in it too, well then, that's almost more than one woman can take! LOL

misskitty211980 said...

Scoutpost- glad to know that I'm not the only aspiring comic geek around! Hugh Jackman should just be Wolverine. That's when he's the best.

I'm can't hardly take the waiting anymore! I've been "refreshing" by watching the whole series again, Season 1 Episode 1 all the way through to our cliffhanger. I'm so ready!

chucklez3 said...

hagbard lost it at one point there and became a chat nazi. I was one of the admins and he was upset cuz i "erased" some chat cuz things I would let someone "vent", then (as i called it) SMITE the room.

He started saying that admins would have to report to him from now on before "smiting", etc. I was like, "whatever" and basically laid down my "weapon" and quit. suddenly, chaos ensued. EVERYONE was having it out with him.

Finally, he left for a while with his panties in a bunch and comes back off and on with little remarks to try to knock me down a notch, so to speak.

eh..........whatever. hahaha.

LuckyGuyLikeMe said...

I've heard from numerous sources that besides the Wolverine and Magneto solo movies, there will be an X-Men 4. I'll look for the links and report back.

Twinkle said...

Hey all! I just spotted on Lostpedia a fake "Last Episode of Lost" presented at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. I didn't see it repeated here so here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3bbWF_F8-s

Who knew our Losties could do comedy?

Twinkle said...

Scoutpost said: "...would it kill Hugh Jackman to pretend to be Wolverine for the rest of his life?!"

But if he's Wolverine for the rest of his life, we wouldn't get to hear his lovely accent ever again!

I found a couple of sites to keep track of the whole Heroes360 ARG, both of which I noticed some familiar faces on :)

http://heroes360clues.blogspot.com/

http://tinyurl.com/2ng8wv

Also, did you guys hear about the ratings from Monday night? Not only were Heroes and 24 almost exactly tied, which I found interesting, but Two-and-a-Half Men beat them both. Who woulda thought? Here's a link on that info:

maven said...

Twinkle: Thanks for "The Last Episode" link. Our Losties did a great job in character!

capcom said...

Hey Lucky, you mean some TLEcers are blogging the Heroes thing? Is Fenris there? BTW, are you lurking here FYSB and especially TLCM??? We miss ya lately. :-) Hope all is well TLCM.

You're right Twinkle, I would miss the accent. Did you like him in that movie with Meg Ryan which name escapes me at the moment? Right about here I would do that Eartha Kitt grrrrrrrrrowwwwwwwl. Heh.

OK, I'll take this to the Hugh Jackman Blog. :o)

maven said...

Capcom: Yeah, I've been over at fangasm Heroes 360 forum...just to fill in the time until Lost! LOL Nothing much is happening in that ARG...yet! And there are a lot of familiar names there.

Yeah, we haven't heard from TLCM for quite a while...hope all is well with her.

Twinkle said...

Didn't see the other HJ movie. I don't get to see much but scifi because we only watch movies we buy. Thanks for the vote though, capcom. :-)

Really I was fishing for someone to say, who needs Hugh Jackman to talk when we've got Dark Red Angel? lol!

scoutpost said...

twinkle said...
Really I was fishing for someone to say, who needs Hugh Jackman to talk when we've got Dark Red Angel? lol!

I'll say it. Both Dark "Red" Angel and Fenris have voices that are smooth as silk! Speaking of Fenris- don't see him over on the Heroes 360 blog. I do miss him and FYSB! Hopefully they'll come back when the episodes start again. TLCM, too, and you know there are a bunch of people who I hope come back.
The Heroes ARG is starting out slow, but then again so did TLE. It will probably heat up by the time LOST starts again- but by that time, don't know if I'll have the time to play it.

Speaking of the Heroes 360 blog- Maven did you make that quilt that is your avatar? It's beautiful.
Twinkle- that fake final episode was definitely good for a laugh. Thanks for the link.
All the chatter around here today has been nice....like the good ole days. hehe
Oh, and Capcom- you're too funny with the HJ talk. I'll have to look up that movie and see for myself.

scoutpost said...

Ok- just looked up HJ. There is a Wolverine movie scheduled to be released summer, 2008- apparently a prequel to X-Men. Too cool....

maven said...

Scoutpost: Yeah, I made that quilt. It's on my bed. You can check out a bigger pic of it on my quilt blog. (Hope I'm not breaking any rules by posting this link! LOL)

capcom said...

Hi Ladies,

I just remembered the HJ movie with Meg-(You Don't Look The Same)-Ryan...."Kate and Leopold". Ryan is her same old self in it of course, and the premise is kinda kooky (modern guy goes back in time, returns with guy from past, guy from past falls in love with modern girl and has to get back to his own time, etc......), but Hughie is just loverly in it as the English guy from the past. Goofy, but I highly (or "Hughly") recommend it for the ladies! Sigh. :o)

Slobber-mode off.

maven said...

FYI: StationZero has some Lost publicity shots released by ABC. ("Bleep" is among them!)

Dennis said...

maven said... Hope I'm not breaking any rules by posting this link! LOL

Yes, there are very strict quilt-spoiler rules!!! :)

Dennis said...

I was watching an old episode of Miami Vice tonight, and guess who was in it? John Locke!!! He was playing some bad guy's lawyer (The bad guy was Michael Madsen).

I posted the clip on YouTube here: Miami Vice - Give a Little, Take a Little

Screenshot: http://www.flickr.com/photos/lostchibbie/369574225/

maven said...

Wow, Dennis...Terry O'Quinn looks so young! It's always interesting to see the pre-Lost Losties!

(Glad I didn't break any "serious" rules! LOL)

Dark Angel said...

Twinkle and Scoutpost I'm going even redder now!

You might not be so impressed when you hear my audio for the next podcast! I tried to put together something coherent but I just kept rerecording it and trying to make it coherent, so I apologise if it doesn't make much sense!

Both me and my wife are getting into Heroes (she's choosing to watch Heroes over Prison Break - I never though I'd see the day) so I'll probably pop over to the Heroes ARG.

Aargh too many forums, not enough time :)

memphish said...

Dennis, I'm not going to ask why you were watching old Miami Vice. Some things are clearly personal, but I see now where the Lost hair department came up with their ideas for flashback Locke hair. Really the job they've done is just remarkable. I wonder if they used old Miami Vice episodes to come up with Kate's hair for her Miami flashback? Something has to explain that bad do.

New Lost Moment is up!!! This one is very curious, and contains the biggest spoiler so far about the outcome of one of our caged friends!!

Dennis said...

memphish said... I'm not going to ask why you were watching old Miami Vice. Some things are clearly personal

Miami Vice was "tha bomb" when I was in high school. I've been watching the season 1 DVDs when there's nothing else on. It had a top notch soundtrack full of the top 80s hits, and amazing guest stars: Terry O'Quinn, Bruce Willis, Michael Madsen, Penn Jillette, etc...

BTW, that episode will be on TVLand tonight at 4:00pm.


Passafist said... New Lost Moment is up!!!

You snaked me! :) I'm off my game this morning.

That Lost Moment is pretty funny, but not as funny as the "Last Episode"

Dennis said...

oh and...

12 more days until Lost!

Christine#2 said...

Wow Chuck, congrats to you on finding love! MAVEN!!!!!!!! CONGRATS ON BEING A GRANDMAMA!! LOVE THOSE QUILTS. Lost is heading our way again. I am so excited. Thrasher!!! congrats on being Married!!! So much news!

FYSB said...

Happy Friday LoCos! Just checking in. I've been in lurk mode since I don't follow the spoilers or the Lost Moments, so I haven't had much to add to the conversation. Thanks luckyguy for posting the Heroes 360 links. Apparently I'm a unique individual ;>). It will be interesting to see if NBC learned anything from the ABC interns.

maven said...

Thanks, Christine. We're pretty excited!

That new Lost Moment is pretty spoilerish....so beware!

Hey, Passafist...when's the next podcast?

capcom said...

TGIF All! Welcome back FYSB! Now if we can get TLCM to check in, all will be right with the LoCo world. I hope that she is OK.

Thanks for the new Moments link Passafist. Some of the comments by viewers of the show and Moments this season, I just don't understand. People seem to be incredulous that big things like the houses in Otherville and other huge equipment could have been brought to the island by the Others, or whomever. Am I too gullible in thinking that it's possible to transport and plant anything, anywhere nowadays, with all the giant ships and equipment that we have since the 20th century? Especially considering the unlimited wealth of the corporations involved in the show, i.e., Hanso, Widmore, etc.? I dunno, it doesn't seem weird or unbelievable to me.

Great discussion here LoCos, it's been a great week for the blog! :o)

Anonymous said...

Episode 10 will premiere monday morning and after that we go back to the weekley format. Steve and I are happy about getting back to regular shows. Hopefully we'll be talking to our Admin this week and Dark Angel is going to provide his master theory for the island.

blueheron13 said...

I'm such a goofball.

It wasn't until watching the new Lost Moment for the third time that I even noticed what the characters were sitting next to!

Yes, beware, the new clip is very spoilery indeed.

Thrasher76 said...

I gotta tell you all how awesome it is to know all of you!!! (hugging the group!)

Well, the house will wait for a little while but the kid thing should happen sometime this year!! I think we are going to name our first born Walter just so I can yell at him like Michael....WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallllllllllllllllllllttttttttttttttttt!!!

No, not really!!

Maven, AWESOME!!! and our very own Maven, the cat, is doing very good and getting big!!

I hope to see all of you a little more now that the Horrid- ahem - holidays are over!!
)
Peace & Namaste!!! (yes I still own that, I think, and I guess I need to make some avitar changes!!!)

Thrasher76 said...

Just read about Terry, he was also the lawyer in one of the Young Guns movies!!

And I too will be popping up on one of the Heroes ARG forums too, well as soon as Team Lena approves me on Fangasm, any other ideas on where to play?

maven said...

Hey, Thrasher! Thanks. Glad to hear my namesake is growing up!

I've been having trouble getting on fangasm Heroes 360 today. The forums keep coming up with an Error message. Anyone else experiencing this?

scoutpost said...

Happy Friday everyone (even though it's almost over)- been a busy day here. Glad you're still here FYSB!
Loved the new Lost Moment. Took me twice to realize what you did Blueheron- so you're not the only one.
I can't get to the Heroes 360 on Fangasm today either. Maybe tomorrow. Looking forward to the new podcast on Monday. Ya'll have a great weekend!

Hey all,

I just got back from seeing "The Fountain" (I felt in the mood for a $1.50 movie) and there was a Lost connection in it. It's said in the movie that the Orion nebula was called Xibalba by the Mayans, and it was the Underworld where dead souls go to be reborn. I immediately thought of how TPTB said that the Swan counter's egypto-glyphs meant "underworld", and the series' thread of how the Lostaways can get a "reborn" life if they want, on the island. Interesting. Anyway, the movie is strange (in a '2001:Space Odyssey' or 'The Man Who Fell To Earth' kind of way) but is one of those beautiful art-house movies, if anyone gets into those.

G'night!

Twinkle said...

Yes, beware, the new clip is very spoilery indeed.

Unless you read the spoiler that spoiled the Lost Moment. They've done that at least a couple times. I think it's on purpose. If they always give only the same things away, then they maintain their real surprises.

Thrasher: Does that mean you're already expecting? Congrats to Maven's family too.

Thrasher76 said...

Not expecting anything yet, still in the trying phase at the moment!! But it will happen soon I am sure!!

I actually took a personal day for the premier of the new season!! LOL How bad is that?

capcom said...

Hi LoCos, I have a questions for you all,

Over on DarkUFO they are speculating on things known and unknown. One of the items mentioned as a known, is that the magnetic anomoly of the island is now gone. I say not necessarily. I thought that it has been implied (via the show and/or TLE) that the island itself possessed it's own odd magnetic properties (as are found elsewhere on earth and the moon). And that the DI attempted to harness those special properties which eventually caused The Incident to happen. Where after, the magnetic buildup had to be "vented" periodically via the timer/code-input. Blowing up the concrete-shielded mystery mechanism and releasing the harnessed build up, would not have changed the original geographic properties of the island area, so isn't the island still an earthly magnetic anomoly? Thanks in advance for any response. It's difficult enough to keep track of all the island facts, I hate when what I thought was a given turns out to be not-so-much. But, if I'm wrong, I'm wrong.

BTW, have fun "trying" Thrasher! :o)

maven said...

Capcom: I totally agree with you that the implosion did not rid the island of its magnetic properties. It is a natural phenomenon that Dharma harnessed. Built up energy was released, but it's still there. It seems to be something that has been there for some time...the magnetic anomaly most likely drew the Black Rock there, as well as others (4-toed statue anyone?). I don't think it would have been destroyed in the implosion...it just blew it's top.

Thrasher: Between your marriage and pending Thrash-ette, Lost-nuts' romance, and my Grandma-hood...it's great to see the LoCos family expanding!

I agree too. Didn't the island appear on the outpost's screen and then disappear again? If the magnetic anomaly is what's keeping it shielded, then it definitely came back after the explosion. I think they could make an argument that the magnetic anomaly is gone but I think there's a stronger argument that it's still there.

Of course maybe those speculating weren't part of the Lost Experience and didn't hear Hanso talking about the island's special properties?

Thanks ladies. Now I don't feel so confused, I really thought that I missed something along the way. Gosh, I really can't wait till the 7th!

I am starting to feel very sorry for TPTB. With all this time that the fans have to think, and theorize, and discuss, and compare notes, it must be very difficult for TPTB to keep any steps ahead of the viewers so as to surprise us at all! (Like with TLE) Think about it, there must be zillions of fans out there speculating on what will happen on the show. That doesn't leave TPTB much leeway for thinking up story lines that no one has thought of and discussed ad-nauseum, leaving the odds of them making viewers happy very low. Poor guys.

Night All. :o)

So... I was watching Miami Vice again :) ... and guess who was in tonight's episode? Dave!

I posted a clip on YouTube here: Miami Vice - Milk Run

Where did all that hair go? Maybe there is a Miami Vice curse??

I also was taking a look over at DarkUfo's site at the list of things we know, and most of them are assumptions. There are only a couple that have indisputable evidence that says it is something we know for sure.

Hey Yakobus! I remember you! Yes we are still here and going strong- welcome back!
Dennis- Oh my gosh that is Dave, although with all the hair he is barely recognizable! Where DID all that hair go?! Poor guy.

10 more days...getting soooo close!

Thanks for your input too Lucky. I also thought that many of the "knowns" on the DarkUFO list are not as concrete as they are thinking. At least that's how we have been considering those things over here at TLC.

Someone on DarkUFO also mentioned on a thread blog that on the blast door map, there's a notation about a possible small manufacturing plant of some kind on the island. I don't remember seeing that, I'll have to go back and look at the map. That would also be a very interesting aspect, if it is so. I bet that OSHA rules are not followed at that plant, so far away from civilization. Especially with people losing their arms all the time! :o) No safety shields on the moving parts of the equipment!

Wow Capcom, that OSHA reference brings back some interesting memories of my workplace.

Luckyguy, lost an arm on the job didja?? Heh-heh. :o) Yeah, I used to be a lab safety rep.....big OSHA headaches. But, you have to idiot-proof the place and protect people from themselves!

BTW, I looked up the blast map on Lostpedia and they have a nice new somewhat interactive map.

The reference to a possible light manufacturing plant is in the upper right of the bagua shape, to the right of the Arrow station. I hope that we get to see this, or even for the Others to speak of it. Darn it, even just concerning the blast door map, there are so many things that TPTB could address for the show to go on for at least a decade! :-D

Too much information.

I know that Lost is like 9 days away now, but if anyone is watching and following along with the Heroes show and 360 game there is a blog set-up similar to TLEC if you are interested in playing along...

Heroes 360
