Housekeeping

Hi, everyone -

Now that we've all had some time to digest the finale, I wanted to share a couple of things that have been collecting in my inbox.

LostGrrl wanted me to let you know that the Lost Community Message Board has been deactivated (sorry, LostGrrl - I didn't get this up before the board came down). Thanks for all of your efforts to keep the message board going!

Also, Zort sent over some interesting stats right after the finale about our activities here. They were pretty fun, so I thought I'd pass them along:

Average comments per episode post - 465
Lowest - 5.13 -Some Like it Hoth - 168
Highest - 6.01 - LA X - 1212

Season 3 total - 12141
Season 4 total - 6012
Season 5 total - 5615
Season 6 total - 6936
Lastly, I received a press release from Click Communications regarding the release of Lost: The Complete Sixth and Final Season and Lost: The Complete Collection on DVD and Blu-ray on August 24. You can read it HERE. If I get anything else interesting, I'll pass it along!

Hey all - I apologize for my radio silence over the last couple of weeks! Did I see that someone is interested in another chapter of the TLC book club? :)

Amy Lynn said...

Interesting fact: from "We have to go back" to the End is 18 days.

maven said...

That is pretty interesting, Amy Lynn. I'm always surprised how little real time passes in the show from one event to another.

Teo said...

I wonder if i can watch the complete collection again, in the exact time frame we see in the show :) Should be wild :)

Ellen said...

Hi everybody! Just stopping by to say hi and hope everyone is faring well...:)
xxoo

Ellen said...

oh, and yes, I would be interested in the book club!
xxoo

maven said...

FYI: For those interested in the chronology of the show and when things happened in relation to other events, this site has all 6 seasons cut up into chronological order in about 45 min. installments (all flashbacks, flash forwards, time jumps put into order). It's a major project by Mike Maloney.

lostgrrl said...

Actually, I have not taken the message board down yet. If you would like it to stay up for any reason, please message me on the board asap...otherwise, I will be taking it down this weekend.

Great stats Melissa..thanks!

Happy Birthday Fenris!

Thanks for the links everyone. I have to see if I can find my bookmark for the MB.

maven said...

Happy Birthday, Fenris!

TheOtherLisa said...

Maven- I'm very interested in that list! You may have enticed me into giving the entire series a re-watch in that order.... what an endeavor! Thanks for the link.

TheOtherLisa said...

Sadly not... the blog has been removed?

maven said...

@TOL: I still see the Chronologically Lost blog.

BTW: Received my EW with Locke on the Cover today that I had ordered! :)

Sayid'sgirl said...

Happy Belated Birthday Fenris. Sorry I missed it life has been a little hectic lately.

Amused2bHere said...

Happy Birthday Fenris!!!

(yeah ok I'm late but in Lost-time does it really count?)

Capcom said...

The main address is still working OK, TOL.

DeDJeZTeR said...

Hey all, just checking in... no the MB is not yet taken down but I am sure it will not be much longer.

Capcom... there is a direct link on this blog... always has been, since we were the sister site, that never got any credit as being such.

Happy belated birthday Fenris

Capcom said...

Thanks Ded! I guess I must have known that way back when, but forgot. :-o

Amused2bHere said...

anyone know when the next meeting of Lostaholics Anonymous is?
I'm in deep withdrawal!

Amused2bHere said...

don't forget to sign up with DarkUFO's Season 6 Episode Cup...if you win you get an S6 DVD set (and all of us already have S1-5, so the S6 set is perfect for us!)

Deadline is soon! Hurry!

Takes a Village said...

Happy Father's Day.
Even if we have Daddy issues ,we still love them.
Missing you already Lost.
Amy Lynn 18 days? Time flies when you're having fun.

maven said...

Happy Father's Day to all TLC Dads and Grandpas!

Missing all the daddy issues on LOST! Wonder if Jack would get a card from David in a sideways Father's Day?

Black Swan said...

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there! and Happy Belated birthday to Fenris!

TAV, congrats on doing so well with DarkUfo's Lost Fantasy League!!! Wow, not bad at all!

I'm ready for some Lostaholics Anonymous. We should meet once a week. I'd say Wednesdays because that will always be Lost day to me. We need a 12 step program.. I think I'm still in the denial stage.. not sure what comes next, LOL!

Nice job TAV!

maven said...

Happy Birthday to one of our fearless leaders....Zort! Enjoy!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Happy Birthday Zort!!

Takes a Village said...

Hi Zort. Happy Birthday;A wee bit late. I know you've been watching World Cup.
It is helping me to move on.

Amused2bHere said...

Happy July, everyone.

sigh.

it sure is quiet around here.

have a safe and happy July 4th!

Ginger said...

Hey you all everybody! Hope everyone is doing well & coping w/LOST withdrawal somehow ;)

Just got internet back yesterday and have enjoyed catching up on all the comments, thoughts, opinions, and still THEORIES! I kind of like it that we still have things to ponder after it's all over :)

I have so enjoyed sharing LOST with all of you. I have already promised 2 people they could borrow my LOST complete collection. Unfortunately for them, I don't think it will be as fun or as good as it was for all of us. No waiting between seasons. No theorizing. No blogging. No community to actively share it. Bummer! I hope they like it :S

maven said...

Hope everyone has a safe and sane 4th of July weekend! And Happy Canada Day, too!

I have quite a few friends who are really getting into the DVDs now! It's tough not to be able to fully answer their questions!

Takes a Village said...

Happy 4th of July;
Don't blow yourself up.

Ginger said...

Missing you guys. Feeling sad it's over :( Hope everyone had a good holiday weekend or just a good weekend :)

Just a little rant here because I know you guys will understand. My MIL had all of season 6 on DVR. I went over to rewatch the finale and all of it was gone! The whole season! Finale and everything! Gone! I can't complain to her because it is her DVR so I'm complaining to ya'll. Thanks.

Capcom said...

Oh man, Ginger. :-( She could have at least told you first.

maven said...

Congrats to the cast and crew for all the Emmy love for LOST!!

Amused2bHere said...

omg Ginger! My son actually had the nerve to suggest tonight that I could delete S6 of Lost from the DVR...so I can completely empathize.

Maven, now we know what it was like for the Others, when the Losties asked questions and they couldn't answer them. Keeping mum is hard! but it's better for the story to unfold naturally.

Ginger said...

Thanks for the sympathy :)

Can't wait for DVD's to come out so we have something NEW to talk about;)

Black Swan said...

I just thought I'd stop by to check in.. Sorry I missed your birthday, Zort! I hope it was a great one!

I miss Lost and all of you guys..

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hey Black Swan
I miss everyone too. Zort post at the ARG blog that there may be an ARG starting. But it appears to be fan made. He has a link to DarfUFO's forum where they recieved an email. Looks like it will last a couple of weeks until the DVDs come out.

LostIt said...

SpoilerTV is hainvg a "Best Show Ever" contest. Right now it's "Gray's Anatomy" vs LOST. So far LOST is in the lead but the margin is slim (52% to 48%).

So Go Vote!

Black Swan said...

Hi sayid'sgirl! I actually just saw that about an ARG, but yeah.. looks fake. Played that flash dharma memory game puzzle, LOL, I'm no good at it. I think more and more stuff like this may come up before the release of the dvd's.

OMG, Lostit!! Gray's can't win over Lost! I'm going to your link right away to vote!! multiple times, if possible!

Takes a Village said...

Happy Birthday Sayid'sgirl; Have a great one. How are you enjoying the afterlife?

Comic-Con this weekend.It won't be the same without Lost.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Thanks TAV!
You made me smile.
You're always so good about remembering birthdays.

Ginger said...

Happy Birthday SG!

Miss ya'll! Miss LOST :(

Sayid'sgirl said...

Thanks Ginger for the Birthday wishes.

TheOtherLisa said...

Hello.
Excited to see some activity here!
I'm just in time to wish SG a Happy Belated!!! Hope it was wonderful.
Sad the nominees were not more plentiful for LOST- but here's hoping for the best for those who were nominated! I almost always miss the awards shows.. hopefully someone here will post!
Take care..hope this finds everyone well!

Sayid'sgirl said...

TOL
Thanks for the birthday wishes. It's still the 21st so you're wishes are right on time.

maven said...

Glad I checked in here to wish Sayid'sgirl Happy Birthday!

Zort70 said...

A slightly late Happy Birthday from me.

I'm having fun looking at all the tweets from Comic Con, but sad that a) I'm not there and b) LOST is not there.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Thanks maven and zort for the birthday wishes.

LostIt said...

LOST beat Gray's on SpoilerTV's "Best Show Ever" contest but it lost to Supernatural :(

LOST is clearly the best show ever. Those results must be wrong.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Believe it or not... New Post!
