NOT IN PORTLAND - SEASON 3, EPISODE 7









Our favorite show has returned at a new time 10/9 Central! I'm sure there'll be plenty of chatting about the episode and the following controversial website...








Check out mittelosbioscience.org. It's very TLE-ish and is curiously related to the "Not in Portland" episode! In the "Projects" section use "jburke" as a username and "rachel" as a password.

While the Mittelos Bioscience site seems really legit and has several direct ties to the show, the following statement was made on the Fuselage Boards by Gregg Nations: "Mittelos Bioscience...is not an official website. What is it counting down to? The day of a new Lost epsiode? I'm not sure what they plan on doing with it, but it certainly won't have any secrets or inside information."

Sure looks "real"...what do you think?

WooHoo!

New Lost Tonight!!!

Administrator said...

Have you guys already been all over this Mittelos Bioscience thing? I've been getting lots of emails!

Administrator said...

The race is on to get that video transcribed!

scoutpost said...

Yeah I thought the official word came out yesterday that it was a fake. I haven't even looked at it becuase by the time I heard about it, people were debunking it. Perhaps I will check it out just to see what they did.
Hey David! Thanks for the new post.

Dennis said...

I call shenannigans!

Passafist said...

Where did the password info come from on this?? Hmm... a new experience that the creators of lost are behind but not admitting to it, that would be awesome!!

maven said...

I heard it was fake...but good. Guess I have to check it out now!

Yeah...new post for what looks to be a great 16 weeks! Thanks, David!

Dennis said...

Here's the timer from the front page for those that missed it.

blueheron13 said...

What video?

Sayid'sgirl said...

yeah I was just over at Inside the Experience and they were talking about it too. Most think it's fake but some are not real sure now.
But since we've been told no new ARG it probably is fake just a well done fan site. Darn.

chucklez3 said...

Hold up.

What video?? Mittelos??? is that like Mittelwerk's over-throwing of N-Telos? or a Mittelwerk / Mentos collabo??? hahaha.......

...but no. seriously.......what is it?

scoutpost: happy birthday. and yeah........"ROLL DAMN TIDE"!!!!!!

always baby.

Dennis said...

After you log in, go to the new projects. After a little while, a new email message will pop up. In the email is a link to a video, which takes you to Revver:

JGZ350 said...

scoutpost, happy early b-day to you! Don't worry, you are fast approaching 40 and it's not all that bad.

Yes, I did see Dom on Kimmel last night. I was a bit surprised when Dom said Damon divulged the big secret of the show to a select few losties. I wonder if he was pulling our chains on that one. Also, I can't believe he didn't watch the Super Bowl and that he was making fun of American Football. Also, I read somewhere today that Dom and Lilly will be wedding this summer.

What video are you talking about admin?

Melissa_Lossa said...

Wow - interesting. It's probably a fake, but someone put some serious effort into it. I'd love to see a transcript of that video.

Has anyone sent them an e-mail to see what happens?

Administrator said...

Dennis posted a link to the video.

I don't think this is another Lost Experience. But...why wouldn't TPTB throw up another tie-in website? Remember the legit Oceanic Airlines site and the original Hanso site?

I know it has been "de-bunked" but by who? Gregg Nations categorically denied it but that could be b/c we stumbled upon it too early (like the first Rachel video on Monster.com).

The article linked to above doesn't really have credentials. The site is good enough to at least deserve an exploration and consideration...

Administrator said...

FYI...

I don't think Mittelos is meant to be a tie in to Mittlwerk. It is possibly an anagram for "Lost Time"

JGZ350 said...

melissa,
Yes I sent them an email yesterday and this is what I got back:

"Thank you for your interest in Mittelos Bioscience.

Unfortunately we are unable to process your request at this time.

If you are having trouble accessing your client login, please access
your account at the following url:
dbase=?retrieveid.login?error

Thank you."

I haven't received any other emails from them today.

maven said...

Well, whoever worked on this site did a really great job! They knew to put in stuff that would really push our buttons. Even naming it Mittelos to tie into Mittelwerk and make us think it has something to do with him. Is this where TWM ended up to continue his agenda? Even the maps of the islands played into many theories out there.

We got some serious vibes that there would be no TLE2. Is this just some individual who is starting their own TLE2. If so, it's going to keep us very busy today! LOL

BTW: Happy Birthday, Scoutpost!

Dennis said...

There is already a page about it on Lostpeida.

The Fuselage post by Gregg Nations declaring the site "not official" is here.

maven said...

Thanks, Sir Links-A-Lot for the Lostpedia info. It seems those in the know all believe this is a fan site. They make powerful points tying this in to some of tonite's episode taking place in Portland and this site being in Portland.

chucklez3 said...

Manny left hints on his myspace that there actually MAY be more to come in way of another "experience" this summer.

obviously, this isn't summer, but still......

Melissa_Lossa said...

Okay, I'm quite possibly just illiterate or something, but Gregg Nations asks in his post, "what are they counting down to?"

Does anybody see a countdown on the mittelos site anywhere?

Dennis said...

If you went to the site yesterday or earlier, the only thing you would have seen was a countdown timer.

Now that the timer has "run out", the site is available.

chucklez3 said...

Ethan Rom is one of the "execs", btw.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Oh, thanks, dennis - thought I was losing it there!

chucklez3 said...

in juliet burke's profile,

"jburke" is hidden to the bottom right.

drag your cursor across the page to see it!!!!!!!!

chucklez3 said...

now, i need a freakin password!!!!!!

chucklez3 said...

what was the password??

ib4uc said...

In the video, it's to Juliet and says something like "I've tried to contact you for years to warn you..." and more about experimenting on humans and that they are going to kill her. Also mentions Hanso Foundation, Widmore, the GWC, and the rest I couldn't quite figure out.

BTW, happy early b-day Scout!

chucklez3 said...

so would that make juliet Alvar's sister perhaps??

Sayid'sgirl said...

Happy Birthday Scoutpost!

chucklez3 said...

and again.........i'm beggin you. what's the password?????

Beth said...

the website is registered to Nestor Carbonell who is supposed to be on the new episode tonight...

Melissa_Lossa said...

The password was rachel. Still not sure where that came from.

And who stumbled on this site, anyway, and how? I almost wonder if the person who asked about it is the creator. What better way to get your site out there than to post a message saying, "I found this crazy web site - is it real?"

takes a village said...

chucklez3... rachel

scoutpost said...

Thanks for all the early b-day wishes everybody!
That video really does get the ARG juices flowing doesn't it? Whoever set it up knew how to get us going. I do have to agree with David though re: being on the lookout for something from TPTB. Like he said, we had all those sister sites like Oceanic.com or whatever it was, for season 1-2, then the ARG last summer, so it would seem that maybe they would have something in the works for us this season. I keep hoping that they'll do the mobisodes this summer if nothing else. Surely they'll give us something to bridge the gap- esp. if the next season indeed doesn't start until Jan. '08. They can't expect me to go that long without something...or else I might snap...and drive half way across the country...wearing a diaper...to track down Damon and Carlton! (j/k I really shouldn't make fun, that woman really needs help).

chucklez3 said...

melissa. from the revver vid. she signed it "rachel". i got it now.

Melissa_Lossa said...

chuck - but you need the password to get the video.... how did the password get out originally? :)

scoutpost said...

That's what I was wondering melissa- is David still around to ask? I just took the info from his comment.

Administrator said...

I have no idea how the password got out...I got emails from several people with both user name and password.

I'll double check to see if I recognize the senders and see if they know any more.

chucklez3 said...

what number was joop, by the way?

expirament what? damn brain fart!!

326??

it's the same as Stitch from Lilo and Stitch is all i can remember!!

chucklez3 said...

dunno. lucky guess? i mean "why NOT rachel"??

ya know?

That was the most interesting email I recieved.

blueheron13 said...

This looks like a fan-site to me.
But I'll keep lurking (in case I'm wrong)!

Melissa_Lossa said...

That's true. :) rachel's probably the first thing I would have tried, too.

capcom said...

Referencing the last post and current:

Thanks for the summary of the pre-special Memphish! My computer is too lame to play it, so the Lost website tells me. :-( As far as Jack and Juliet (which I agree with you about) don't forget about the Stockholm syndrome where abductees fall for, or come to care about, their captors. Also, Jack seems like the type of crabby person who could fall in love with someone that he doesn't like. :o)

If there is no such thing as a kidney sac, Jack is REALLY going to have a good laugh on them when the threat is all over! Bwahaaa! I hope that he rubs it in, that would be funny, the Others think that they are so superior but they don't even know that there is no such thing!

You're right Lucky, Lost (and this blog) truly is an ageless past-time! Myself, I just turned five-oh..........a couple years ago. :-D The 40s are awesome, but I liked the 30s too. Don't know about the 50s yet, too soon to tell. But as long as I am in control of my own life and bodily functions it can't be all that bad!

LOL Dennis, on the shenannigans! That was one of my favorite South Park eps, if that is what you are taking it from. :o)

LOL chucklez, and now Mitteljerk is putting the virus/vaccine in Mentos instead of Apollo bars! He'll probably put his own face on the wrapper too. Maybe we can all meet up again in our respective cities when they give out free packs of Mittlos. :-p

Thanks for sharing all the info on the Mittlos site everyone. Even if it is fake, I thank the fan who gave us this little glimmer of fake TLE to play with and talk about. Red herrings ain't so bad sometimes.

Oh Scoutpost, your crack about driving to see TPTB............priceless!!!!!!!! FWIW, astronauts are used to wearing diapers, cuz they wear them under their flightsuits. She may have had a leftover diaper from her last flight......still. Creepy. She must have gotten spaaaaaace madnesssssssssss! (R&S fans)

chucklez3 said...

and wait a sec.

Why would "administrator" get an email from the ferryman????

is this an elaborate "thirst-quencher" created by the TLEC crew???

chucklez3 said...

.....now i'm gonna sit back here at my desk, eating my Joop Loops or Blakes Flakes or maybe some Valenzetti-Os or even warm up a DHARMA-meal and watch the puppets dance.

isibell said...

It's gone now.

*pouts*

I wanted to see......

Oh well. Maybe it will come back later.

chucklez3 said...

chucklez3 said...

anyhoo........yeah, kinda' wondering now about this.

i mean, why "administrator"???


so.....maybe it's NOT linked to the show or previous "experience", but rather TLEC PTB quenching our thirsts for "more" of the "experience".

(no offense administrator). just smells a little fish-biscuit-y

Thrasher76 said...

Scoutpost - Happy Birthday and this is why I tok off today!! To play along and be on here chatting before the show!

Mittelos - "The Fresh Maker!"

Melissa_Lossa said...

isibell - it seems to be back up. I'm not having issues anymore, anyway.

chuck - hmmmm..... are you smelling a conspiracy? I think David just got himself a little TLEC celebrity status, so some people naturally think of him when stuff surfaces. That Ferryman name sounds familiar, too.

Dennis said...


Capcom,
... I'll have that Lost Survivor Special up on YouTube in two shakes of a lamb's tail :)


There is a new post by The Speaker. Nothing new, just saying "Hi"

chucklez3 said...

on the flipside to Gregg Nations's comments about it not being an "official" site to "lost". ummm.......technically speaking, were ANY of the other sites associated with the "experience" considered to be "official" LOST-related sites?

Not really. the experience didn't even take place at the same time as the show and only names of organizations and a few names were used from the show.

nothing in way of actually "acting" characters, etc.

but still........"to be or not to be"........


this BE the real thing or this NOT BE the real thing??? and you know what i mean.

Thrasher76 said...

LOL

Working for a tomorrow, TODAY!!

That is so funny and corny!

chucklez3 said...

thrasher: i should take a picture with some mentos (made up to look like "mittelos") and post it!!! hahahahaha.

maybe use it as my new avatar. hee hee.

cyberyang said...

The site was a definite fake. But, it was pretty exciting to see something like this pop up. We need a TLE sequel.

Anyway, can't wait for tonight! We even get an hour long recap episode. For the first time, I'll get to enjoy LOST in High Definition.

chucklez3 said...

(pulls a jerry maguire):

"i know you're all expecting me to 'conspiracy brotha' on you and just FLIP OUT MAN!!! but i'm taking my 'wacky' ideas and the stench of fish-biscuits and i'm walking down 'Something-wrong-here Lane'!!

Who's comin with me???"

Melissa_Lossa said...

Personally, I like Ethan's bizarre and hyperactive quote:

“Yes, Sappho and Phaon are we!
But one grief is weighing on me.
You don't know your way to the sea!”


And I'll be recording Lost tonight on my new DVR. :) Looks like we all upgraded just in time!

Thrasher76 said...

What was Ethan's last name on the show? Was it Rom? Yes it is, check over at IMDB.com

SO it is not real, C'mon whoever this is....did you expect to pull this over on the best Lost fans ever?

TLEC'ers unite!!

chucklez3 said...

hahaha.

melissa: bought lostnuts a TiVo DVD-Recorder for Christmas.

she's a TiVo nut and what better way to say "i love you" than with a spatula..........ummmm, TiVo DVD-Recorder?

chucklez3 said...

that's what i said earlier, thrasher.

Ethan Rom?

But still.......Ethan and Juliet.......both Others and both been there for a while.

eh.

nope. (takes mouthful of Valenzetti-Os).......mm-mm...nope. not buyin it.

Thrasher76 said...

Sorry Chuck, been out fixing the wifes car, it needed a new battery. But it is kind of cool in a non-ARG fake waste of time kind of way....

chucklez3 said...

hahahaha.

yeah. well done, but still *sniff, sniff*......reaks of not-so-official.

kinda' like the "invalid login" thing.

that part was a bit too "cartoony" for me.

memphish said...

Boy, a girl goes away for 3 hours and look what happens.

chucklez3 said...

hahaha.......

that'll teach ya.

memphish said...

Something I read a while back led me to believe that tonight's Portland is not the same one where the Mittelos site is located. Just adding that in to the debunking of the site. I love it that someone would take the time to create such a thing.

chucklez3 said...

my thing is this.

if it's fake, why would someone go out on a limb to say that Ethan and Juliet are currently working together? Ummm........hello!! Where's Ethan?

Duh. Also, a lot of thought into the idea that Juliet Burke is Alvar's sister.

ummm.....sure.

Anyway.........don't think this is real. Nice try though, TLEC admin. or whoever.

maven said...

Even though this site is considered fake by many...it's brought back such fond memories of last summer's TLE! Just like the old days...I'm gone for an hour and there's a ton of comments! Guess we're warming up for tonight.

As usual us West coasters can't participate in the early discussions...have to wait until tomorrow. :(

memphish said...

That website is cracking me up. Shouldn't the little girl have held up flashcards that conveyed the hidden message? I love that the 2nd island contains a "Quarry," and that Ethan has a degree from Canada. If it's a fake, and I think it is, it's a good one, and certainly entertaining.

Amanda said...

Wow, I am so excited that Lost is coming back tonight. I hope these eps aren't as disappointing as the first six.

Melissa_Lossa said...

On a completely unrelated note - I know there's some Stephen King fans around here, so I thought I'd mention that the new comic, The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born came out today. I picked up the first issue at a midnight release last night, and it is well worth a read.

DiggityDirge said...

Howdy All,

Whoever made the the comment that waiting for LOST is the same as the day before XMAS was so on point. This day has been dragging along it's only noon here.

Anyway, the Bioscience website is pretty interesting. It's definately not real since it is not regsitered to abc, but cool anyway.

There is a good article on EW today (http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20010504,00.html), but does contain some quite minor spoilers. Damon & Carlton go as far as to say what episodes certain things will happen in, and what will happen with Mike & Walt. I recommend checking it out. I didn't think anything in there was terribly revealing.

Anyway, checking out TVGuide and catching up on today's comments.

chucklez3 said...

well as far as the registration thing.......it didn't say it WASN'T a part of ABC, etc.

However, neither did the hanso foundation site.

and honestly......they wouldn't have to (i don't think).

not if the "actions" of the sites don't relate to those of the show. use of names may come into play though.

i don't believe the site to be "real" either.

however, just playing devil's advocate.

DiggityDirge said...

You can always check who owns the website by going to the following url, http://www.internic.net/whois.html,and typing in the domain name (ex mittelosbioscience.org) If it is an official LOST site, ABC will be the registered owner. This is one of the old ways we we see if a new website was "in game" during the LOST experience. Below is the info for the from the website for mittelosbioscience.org. Definaetly not real. Created and owned by someone if Oregon probably mking a play on the title of tonights epi.

chucklez3 said...

cool. don't have access to that, so didn't know. anyhoo......


what does the one for www.thehansofoundation.org look like???

DiggityDirge said...

both TV Guide and EW say to keep our eyes open for some good Easter Eggs in tonights epi!

DiggityDirge said...

all the ones from the LOST experiece used to say ABC. Now that it is over the individual site admins own the domains, and the information shows them listed as the owner. Apollocandy, thehansofoundation, hansoexposed, etc.

I guarantee they all used to say ABC. It was the one thing that told us if the sight was real or fake.

DiggityDirge said...

completely unrelated but driving me nuts nonetheless. Anyone using IE 7 to access this site? Since the upgrade, everytime I post or access the forum I get some "page contains secure & non secure items" error message. Really annoying and I can't figure out how to stop it. Anyone else have the same prob?

Administrator said...

I'm just catching up on comments. I see that Chuck suspects me as the culprit. I will go ahead and ease Chuck's suspicions and officially deny any involvement or foreknowledge of the Mittelos website.

The email I received from FerryMan was an actual email. I didn't make it up.

Still not sure what to think of it. Not trying to confuse anybody or create any annoying hoaxes. On first glance, I thought the site was very interesting so I passed on the info.

Just a few more hours until the BIG SHOW!

DiggityDirge said...

Figured out how to stop it. Follow these instructions to disable. Howeverm, it will effect all sites and is a potential security risk.

1. In your web browser go to Tools.
2. Select Internet Options from the drop down menu.
3. Click on the Security tab.
4. Click on the Web content zone you use to access the Site.
5. Click Custom level.
6. Scroll down to find the heading Miscellaneous.
7. Find the sub-heading Display Mixed Content.
8. Click Enable.
9. Click OK.
10. In response to ‘Are you sure you want to change the security settings for this zone?’ click Yes.
11. Click OK to close the Internet Options box.

MS says it is a site design issue. I will email the admins to see if they are aware and can fix.

chucklez3 said...

wasn't saying YOU in particular. just that it's odd that you would get an email regarding this. As YOU are not "in-game". know what i'm saying??

that's like Rachel emailing me and me alone!

Just saying that if it happened, it's probably not the "real deal". ya know?

Dennis said...

DiggityDirge said...Anyone using IE 7 to access this site?

IE7? What's that? Is it like FireFox??

;)

chucklez3 said...

and so everyone is clear.......

...i really wasn't kidnapped by mittelwerk and no. unfortunately, i did not hold a conversation with joop about the four-toed statue.

Sorry.

DiggityDirge said...

Dennis-

IE 7 stands for Internet Explorer 7. Both FireFox and IE are web browsers, juts different flavors by different companies. IE is automatically installed with Windows.

Microsoft just updated it a few months ago from 6 to 7. One of the major new features they stole directly from FireFox. (tabbed browsing of multiple web pages from within on window)That's was MS does best. Steal stuff from the little guy.

I really like it, but the more and more I get around to the sites I like to surf I find little issues like this.

Dark Angel said...

Hi Guys,

Woo Hoo - Lost Day and Happy Birthday Scoutpost

Shame that the Mittlelos site is fake - theres been a lot of talk that it is an anagram of Lost Time. However I wonder if Not In Portland means there is a clue in an anagram of 'in Portland', all I can come up with is Inland Port or An Old Print.

Dennis said...

Well, I was going to upload the Lost Survivor Guide to YouTube...but, it looks like YouTube no longer accepts the FLV video format for uploads :(

However, you can download the FLVs directly, and watch them with VLC:

Lost Survivor Guide - Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6


DiggityDirge, I know what IE is :) I was just kidding around.

chucklez3 said...

if it was real.....i'd go with
"inland port", considering we're usually discussing islands.

Dark Angel said...

Oh and I've used IE7 and Firefox to access the site - nothing exciting.

Well I'm off to Watch Heroes and Prison Break - I won't get to see Lost till tommorow night at the earliest and maybe not until Friday :(

Codysmom said...

Hey, everybody!!! So excited about tonight!!

I'm also very intrigued by the Mittelos site. It's quite well done. When you go to Ethan Rom's bio, his quote is "“Yes, Sappho and Phaon are we! But one grief is weighing on me. You don't know your way to the sea!” I looked up Sappho and Phaon and found this on Wikipedia:

"Phaon in Greek mythology was a boatman of Mitylene in Lesbos. He was old and ugly when Aphrodite came to his boat. She put on the guise of a crone. Phaon ferried her over to Asia Minor and accepted no payment for doing so. In return, she gave him a box of ointment. When he rubbed it on himself, he became young and beautiful. Many were captivated by his beauty.

According to mythology, Sappho fell in love with him. He lay with her but soon grew to resent her and devalue her. Sappho was so distraught with his rejection that she threw herself into the sea to drown."

Phaon = FerryMan?? I wonder who he wishes would fall off a cliff? Ahh, feels like the old TLE. Even if it's fake, I'm enjoying it!

diggitydirge, yes I have IE7 (and I like it), but I don't think I feel like changing my security settings, but thanks for the info in case I change my mind).

Happy birthday, Scoutpost!! And thanks for the links, dennis (I mean Sir links-a-lot).

chucklez3 said...

codysmom:

yeah, thought about that.

i actually thought that Ben was Phaon and Juliet was Sappho.

But what do I know?

I stopped when i suspected this to all be fake.

DiggityDirge said...

Sorry Dennis. I thought you were serious. :) You never know who's on the other side.

In regards to an anagram of time, it would be really cool if we saw one soon, like tonight.

Cam794 said...

OMG yessssssss i knew it. there is gonna be another LE can any1 hear what that guy says in the video wen u click on he link wen u get the msg from "rachel" i heard GWC, Hanso Foundation, Julie,Times square? somhing about new york?
hmmmmmm seems preety cool im gonna keep listening

Codysmom said...

Hmmm.... even more digging, I put the whole Ethan Rom quote into a google search and guess what showed up?

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
The Brothers Karamazov

chucklez3 said...

also, just got off phone with lostnuts and she has an entertainment weekly that says tonight's episode will deal with "blah, blah and another one of juliet's jobs" or something to that effect.

hmmm........mittelos perhaps?

chucklez3 said...

and know what?

the producers have mentioned that either this year or next year might be the end for the show.

if so, don't you think that they MIGHT incorporate the "experience" and the show at some point???

why not now, with RACHEL and JULIET, etc???

Cam794 said...

Melissa_Lossa said...

Okay, everybody - time for me to head out. Only, what.... 5 hours left until the recap? Nice!

I'll catch you all after the episode. Enjoy!

bigdog said...

havent been back to the site in a while. Glad to see that you all are still here. Was a big lurker previously.

Even if the Mittelos site is a fake. it reminded me of how much i enjoyed the hunt from TLE. It was a great concept for a great show.

scoutpost said...

Wow I missed a lot since I left. Looks like no body is around anymore though. 5 1/2 hours left here...ugh it's going by slow.

Dennis said...

I'm here :)

Totengraber said...

Happy Lost Day!

I hope Nikki and Pablo don't mess it up for me tonight.

memphish said...

Great to see the fish biscuit. I'm checking in every little bit. I wasn't that bummed about the later start until today. That extra hour may do me in. I grabbed a power nap earlier to prepare.

scoutpost said...

Ahhhh a nap would be SO nice, but don't think it's in the cards for me today. I have to take my daughter to ballet class soon, so I'm hoping that getting her ready, the class itself, dinnertime and moving right into kids bath and bedtime will make the time pass fast. Man it makes me tired just thinking about all that.

sean said...

hey. how's everyone?
im not sure what to make of this mittelos thing yet.

Dennis said...

Awwww :(

Totengraber, your fish biscuit is so tiny!

Did you go swimming?

sean said...

too bad the mittelos thing is probably fake. i guess someone has waaaaay too much time on their hands.

and happy lost day.

scoutpost said...

Dennis said...
Awwww :(

Totengraber, your fish biscuit is so tiny!

Did you go swimming?

Well, if the awww was for me, I'm not so much complaining as I'm just hoping it all makes the time go by quicker :)

And regarding Totengraber's fish biscuit....well it has been unusually cold in Dallas lately.

sean said...

ill see you all later.

im prepared for the longest 4 hours of the last few months.

Dennis said...

I'll see you all after the show!

Totengraber said...

Yeah, itsi bitsi biscuit.

I guess Google is downsizing Blogger.

Dig Y'all Latter

maven said...

It's going to be tough here on the West Coast to wait for 10 PM! Can't even check in here and other Lost sites to while away the time. Guess I'll get in a lot of quilting! LOL

Hope there'll be some West Coasters around at 11 PM (PST)...although that's getting kinda late for me!

Twinkle said...

oooooh! That's a *fish biscuit*! I am so dense. :-D

Kudos! We made it to Lost Day!

capcom said...

Dennis, thanks for your efforts to get the Special available.....you-da-man!

Well, if Mittelos is fake, I'm just happy that I got a fake little TLE fix today. Like methadone to a heroin addict....sorta. But the Isle of Lesbos? Hmmmmmm. Maybe Juliet and Jack won't be getting together after all. Ba-dum-psh!

Toten, that's a minnow-bisquit! :o)

Happy Lost Day Peeps!!!!

Olerica said...

Happy Lost Day!

...and Happy Birthday, Scoutpost.

scoutpost said...

I feel your pain Maven. We still have 3 hours to go here. Don't know if I'll be up afterward or not- depends on how tired I am, of course I have a feeling I won't be able to go right to sleep anyway. YOu know one idea, if possible, would be to set up two chat rooms. One east coast and one west coast. We could chat during the episode without worrying about spoilers, then once the west coast finishes everybody could join together or flip back and forth- whatever. Of course I don't know much about chat rooms or how they're set up, so I can't implement this myself. Just an idea that popped into my head.
Well gotta go put dinner on the table...see you after the show! Have fun you EST/CST people!

Friday's_Child said...

Hi, everybody! Although I've been lurking about since the Lost hiatus began (more like SULKING over the 3-mo. long hiatus that we've had to endure), I'm as excited as all you guys about getting to see tonight's show(s).
Poor Maven, having to wait until 10 p.m.!!

I took a look at the Mittelos site, and agree with you guys that it's probably not real. It hits the high points of our TLE adventure, but as someone else commented, it doesn't give us anything new. All it did was make my heart ache for the excitement and obsession that we experienced last summer. Waaaaah, can anything ever really top that?

If TPTB do decide to create a TLE2, at least they'll know what they're up against (now that they know how SMART most of you guys are!!!).

memphish said...

Do we have a chat room or are we just going to fill up the comments after the epi airs?

And Capcom said:But the Isle of Lesbos? Hmmmmmm. Maybe Juliet and Jack won't be getting together after all. Ba-dum-psh! That would work for me. We have been promised a gay character haven't we? But there's already not enough girls to go around and of course now Kate is on the short list to get a gut-shot.

Cam794 said...

het every1 just goin through youtube and i found this

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UepDbO2ewdY&eurl=

its a funny yet cool video about LOST acompanied by the son "Alternitive Polka" by. Weird Al. Check it out. good way to burn of couple minutes until LOST

audiopimp said...

just thought i'd chip in something about the Mittelos site...
I'm a designer and it's pretty clear to me that this site was not made by the same people in charge of the visual aspects of the previous ARG. It looks like the work of a dedicated but amatuer fan, who comes from a web programming background and clearly not a design one. If it was official it would have been worked on by professionals, and very obvious introductory level things such as poor choices of font & text size would definately not have made the grade by anyone with experience, unless it the desired effect was to look amatuer - which this site is attempting to do the opposite of. The map and the navigation, buttons etc are all a bit MS Paint if you know what i mean...
So yeah, just throwing that in... for the common amatuer design flaws alone i could immediately tell it's a fake, hope everyone out there doesn't get excited about this, it's all just the work of someone sitting back and enjoying watching the forums get worked up over nothing. The idea is alright but if you want to trick people you're gonna have to match the design skill of the original ARG team and that is going to require at least some basic beginner design understanding.
Looking forward to the episodes being back in action by the way, but i think the ARG has served its purpose and can be put to rest.
Would watch online but ABC won't broadcast shows on it's site to out of the USA viewers, & here in NZ they haven't even got around to screening the 6 ep mini series yet... so its torrents for me...

Crossfade said...

Wow. Just got on to countdown until the show... This Mittelos Labs thing is interesting...

Memphish: You shouldn't know where Ranburne is. It's a city in the middle of about 4 communities with a total population of about 1000.

memphish said...

Thanks for the absolution Crossfade.

It's just under 1:15 until "Not in Portland." I'm going to spend most of it watching Friday Night Lights. For those of you who haven't tried FNL yet, the first episode is free on iTunes right now. I highly recommend it. The characters and drama are great.

Crossfade said...

Although the consensus on the MB site is that it is fake, I really hope it's real. I'm chomping at the bit for another TLE. A mini-one during the break would have been nice.

Crossfade said...

Well, taking off... I'll (hopefully) discuss the implications of tonight's episode with y'all tommorow. Until then,

Namaste Locos,

Cross

Midnightstrider said...

Omg, omg, omg!

Hanso never abandoned the the DI or the island. The DI is still working! We finally have prof that the Others are indeed, D.H.A.R.M.A. employees.

I think this episode also shows us that the Rousseau-is-an-other theory is even clsoer to being correct!

memphish said...

Only 19 minutes. I can't believe it's finally here. This way beats Xmas.

memphish said...

OMG! That was a freakin' awesome opening. Othersville pales in comparison.

Cam794 said...

um ok now who thinks that website was fake? hmmmmmm! RACHEL Juliet's sister. and rachel was the password?! hmmmm!!!!!

memphish said...

Still a fake site Cam. The script was all over the web. Great epi. so far!

JGZ350 said...

Yes great episode so far.

Is there any place for Loco's to chat after tonight's episode memphish?

memphish said...

Other than here, not that I've heard.

Christine#2 said...

there used to be a chat rom, but it seems to have been deleted. and yes, that site MS is a big fat fake!

Cam794 said...

UM WTF! was that some kind of brain washing crap! omg. and ok how would the guy get the symbols correct for mittelos?! im still not giving up

JGZ350 said...

Wow, Lost is back in the saddle again!

memphish said...

I hope people are getting lots of screen caps. Things I noticed in The Room! First, it was room 23, that was for the newbies. Second, it was The Room as in Walt we'll put you back in the room. Then there was a mention of Jacob something like God loves you and he loves Jacob. Didn't catch all that. And then there was the shot of Gerald DeGroot that we've seen in the Swan film. And there was of course the stuff about Everything Changes and Think About Your Life. Sawyer was very drawn to it. Interesting.

BTW, this is the Sawyer I love to love in this episode. I am anti-Sawyer and Kate, but Sawyer full of shocking Pickett, pulling Wookie tricks, and handing out Sheena (which he used before for Kate in The Long Con) and better, Underdog for Alex is the stuff I love. And Alex hangs with him. Awesome.

chucklez3 said...

holy crap it is real!!!!!

chucklez3 said...

brb

memphish said...

Yes, Juliet would not hesitate to shoot you Kate, or should I say Pickett!

Cam794 said...

HOLY SH*T excuse me i just screamed that wen that dude got hit by the bus im like "HOLY CRAP!" lo9l my mom jumped that was totally unexpected. and i kno that site is real now i mean cmoon people is it that hard to beleive?

JGZ350 said...

memphish, I wanted to say those things too about the room, but wasn't quite sure if that is frowned up with the people on the west coast not having seen the episode yet. Either way, I will have to watch that scene at least a few times. Yes, I picked up on all that you picked up memphish. You have an eye for detail too!!!

chucklez3 said...

okay, yeah. i know i said "alvar" earlier, but i had too many thoughts running through my head about the idea of a new "experience" and i was at work.

anyway, i was right though. i mean to say juliet and rachel = sisters.

and yup. there we go.

mittelos is real and the execs are real..

what we're dealing with here people is BEFORE THE CRASH!! Before Juliet was on ths island.

So, we have present day (the experience), 2 years ago (the show) and now, a few years before THAT (Juliet's flashbacks and the new "experience" and sites).


So, here we go..........i think.

oh and to giggity, giggity or whatever his name was.........

HA!!!!!!!!

Christine#2 said...

please be nice to us west coasters no spoilers!

memphish said...

Christine, stay off for the next few hours. We need to discuss. Ruling from the Admins?

Cam794 said...

WOW great great great epi. expesally the end. well since it on later i have 2 go 2 bed so ill leave my full thing 2morrow bye!

memphish said...

I thought once it started to air we were allowed to talk. Is that not right? I don't won't to spoil, but there's no way I can stay up another 2 hours.

memphish said...

Dennis, where are you?

JGZ350 said...

That was an incredible episode. Definitely vintage Lost. Lost is back, but with a vengence!

Memphish, I wish we could discuss this episode. I have a couple of questions I want to ask!!!

chucklez3 said...

whoops. sorry.

let me lay out a theory.

mittelos: based on the timeframe juliet gave for how long she's been on the island, i'd say that's right around the time alvar went missing.

mittelos is (was) a "front" for mittelwerk to recruit for DHARMA (island duty).

i'll stop here. Anything else would be spoilers.

Again, I apologize West-Coast Avengers.

I never post at night, so I got a little excited.

See everyone else in the morning!!!

peace and nomar's nasty

memphish said...

Dennis said he'd be here post-show. Let's see what he says. I've got at least 30 minutes in me. That episode was fantastic!

chucklez3 said...

anyone have chat????

JGZ350 said...

I got maybe an hour, that episode pumped me up big time!

memphish said...

Aaagh! We need a ruling. Can we talk? Yuck, that reminded me of Joan Rivers.

chucklez3 said...

ugh. i have to get up at 5. it's after 11 now.

but i'll be at work for a typical 10 hours tomorrow.

so i'll have plenty of time then.

i have to get some sleep.

talk to you tomorrow (those "day-wakers", anyway).

memphish said...

ghz350 or chucklez3 do you know where Dennis lives? East Coast or West?

chucklez3 said...

anyone have myspace???

we could do myspace IM. or AIM for that matter.

memphish said...

Are you guys on the TLC message board? We could open up a thread over there.

chucklez3 said...

he's in lexington, kentucky memphish.

central time. show just ended there, too.

memphish said...

Well where is he? Dennis we need you!

Melissa_Lossa said...

That was so great! I definately need to watch that Clockwork Orange room again.

JGZ350 said...

memphish, I'm in central and the Lost is over here. So, what's the verdict?

chucklez3 said...

okay.........yeah, i really need some sleep.

i'm starting my running routine during lunch again and i have to be rested. 10-hour work day and all. gotta be at work at 6.

talk tomorrow. sorry.

i have stuff to say about the show and the sites now.

later!!!!!!!

memphish said...

Yea melissa_lossa the people with the screen caps like Sledgewedge are going to be working OT on that one.

memphish said...

So jgz350 and melissa_lossa, what do we say? Do we talk?

JGZ350 said...

I need to rewatch that scene at least a few times. Is Dennis in the house???

chucklez3 said...

for those that have the power................

please, implore you!!

no sublymonal.com!!!

good-night and good luck.....

okay, that sucked.

peace and nomar's nasty

memphish said...

No, and that surprises me. My guess--he's already rewatching or lucky him he's got someone live he can discuss it with. Sometimes husband's that don't watch LOST can really drag you down.

JGZ350 said...

memphish, I would hate to upset the west coasters. Okay, who is going to make an executive decision here???

Melissa_Lossa said...

Okay, does anybody remember a couple of weeks ago, when Doc Jensen posted an article with some spoilers that we were trying to talk about in code? He said that in the premiere, one of the characters says exactly how long they've been on the island and that it corresponded with a real world event.

I couldn't give my theory then because of the spoiler rule, but I think I was right: Juliet's been on the island for three years, two months and twenty-eight days - putting her arrival right after September 11, 2001.

memphish said...

chucklez3 that made my laugh. Sublymonal was one of the worst Moments. Get the play on words?

chucklez3 said...

save it for tomorrow

we rest and come in fresh and guns blazin in the morning.

if you want, go to the RBR site tomorrow. we have chatzy there.

Melissa_Lossa said...

memphish - I hear ya! Every time that dramatic swish noise happened, my husband would ask, "Is it over now?"

memphish said...

Okay, don't you think that West Coasters know to stay off the comments? Maven does I know and so far only Christine#2 has said otherwise. Let's go for it until we hear otherwise and Dennis can delete at will if he thinks otherwise.

memphish said...

Are we in jgz350 and melissa_lossa?

chucklez3 said...

you know what concerns me?

the fact that "administrator" got that email directly to HIM from "ferryman".

that means "administrator" is "in-game" by default.

hahaha.

Melissa_Lossa said...

I agree. I don't want to upset the west coasters, but I don't think it's fair to make the rest of us wait.

So, do we still think the web site's a fake? I'm leaning toward yes, but I still jumped when I saw that logo in Dr. Albert's presentation!

capcom said...

Wow...wow, wow, wow! "I liked it--alot", said Forest!

Cam, do you talk like that in front of your Mom?! For shame.

Good thinking about "the room" and Walt, Memphish! I hope there are lots of caps as well somewhere, yow. Funny, when I went to the Dia art center in NYC, there was a big room with a piece of "art" like that running. Actually, there were a couple of rooms like that. Not too appealing.

And now I feel sorry for Juliet!

I thought also that once it aired, there was really no censoring of talking about that ep on TLC.

I think that Mittelos could still be fake (but I hope not). It could have been made by someone who got one of the pre-released copies of the ep, last week, so they knew who the people and names were. Not to burst any TLE-2 bubbles, mind ya.

So glad and grateful to have y'all to talk to about the ep!! And yes, Sawyer was in good form tonight, Memphish. :o)

Melissa_Lossa said...

don't forget, chuck - David also got a glyph to release. I'm telling you, he's a TLEC celeb.

chucklez3 said...

okay, okay. off to bed for real.

i'm such a sucker for this. hahaha.

email me at Buttmonkey73@yahoo.com if you guys / gals wish.

or hit me up at my myspace at www.myspace.com/chucklez3 (big surprise).

good night and dream of sugar plums and missing orangutans!!!

memphish said...

I think the website is based on the spoilers. The Tailsection had a complete outline of the epi. Despite my attempts to avoid spoilers I knew what killed the ex-Mr. Juliet (though I did not know there was an ex-Mr. Juliet) and looking at that website you could tell it was based on the epi. spoilers.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Yeah, I had forgotten about Walt mentioning the room. Nice catch!

Did anyone else wonder, if Karl was in room 23, what was in the other 22 rooms?

memphish said...

Yeah melissa_lossa good catch on the Clockwork Orange thing. That just looked like some modern art crap to me. I represented the MOMA in La Jolla once. You still cannot convince me that a garden hose, even in La Jolla is ART.

Administrator said...

You can chat in the comments on episode nights...the West Coasters should know to stay away.

:)

I'm still leaning towards "legit" on the Mittelos website. That would have to be some quick work...some highly skilled work...and some very smart, creative work...for someone to put up a fake that quickly.

memphish said...

Admin, is that you? New pic, new name? Are we sure that's David? Are you putting us "in game?"

Administrator said...

Once again...I promise that I am in no way involved in the Mittelos Bioscience webmastering, promotion, etc.

memphish said...

Okay David, you just changed that from the last time I hit F5. I have had some wine, but really!

JGZ350 said...

hey memphish, didn't that guy, I can't remember his name, that was recruiting jules look like someone in TLE???

Melissa_Lossa said...

I will freely admit to not really getting modern art. :)


I have to say, the most frustrating thing about this episode to me was the whole Alex thing. I was just waiting for Kate of Sawyer to say, "Wait.... didn't that French lady have a daughter named Alex who was kidnapped by the Others at birth and would be exactly your age?" I mean, COME ON!

memphish said...

jgz350 are you still here? What are your questions?

Administrator said...

memphish,
Sorry...I have a few blogger accounts and I was commenting under another one by accident.

Great episode wasn't it?!

chucklez3 said...

what if they're numbered like THE NUMBERS. not in sequence. not 1,2,3,4, but instead, 4,8,15,16,23,42. and JUST those numbers.

what if the "equation" has something to do with what happens in the rooms?

i had a theory before about the "numbers" for the formula representing things we could prevent. if we can prevent all six, we can save the world. but fail in JUST ONE and we're still doomed. kinda like multiple solutions to ONE FATE.

but hey. i'm just a guy who needs to take his butt to bed.

JGZ350 said...

Okay, what was the anagram, Mittelos? Lost time? Did anybody see any easter eggs?

memphish said...

Okay, so the recruiter was Nestor Carbonall (sp?) and could you believe the amount of eyeliner on him? I didn't recognize him from TLE, but what has he been on? I recognize the game but don't feel like pulling up IMDB.

I wish Kate had shot the guy. I won't my Supah-Kate back!

sean said...

hey. i cant stay long.

great episode. awesome.
