"Invocation" for the final season of Lost
« on: February 09, 2010, 02:07:18 PM »
Thought I would share the Doc Jensen article as I am "featured" at the beginning of it (the little poem):

http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20313460_20342468,00.html

Two shout outs... first, I totally would have never done this had I not been involved with this amazing community.  It may be dorky (okay... almost definitely dorky), but it's a nod to the great people that are around here that I actually posted it here (and only here).  Second, thanks to Lil for providing the muse as she wrote a Lost Carol for the now famous holiday, Lost Eve, that was in the form of "'Twas the night before Christmas".  Thanks Lil!

I didn't know you were a closet poet, Holland. I might need to send you some stuff to edit.  ;D

Oh and btw it was pretty awesome. Have I said that yet?




Oh and btw again, I'm ... kinda jealous.  :P

Wow... thank you.  I'm not sure if it is sad or not, but it's probably one of the best things I've written over the years.  I've always lightly dabbled, but this is the first time in a long time that I've actually sat down and actually completed a full anything.  It was a fun process and a lot faster than I expected.

The only other thing I can say is don't be too jealous... I don't have my own Lost podcast!   ;)

You see... that's okay.  I totally went to school for podcasting.  Instead, I'm working for a silly software company without a podcast in sight!  ;)

Thanks Mrs. H!  It still kinds of surprises me that anyone thought it was good enough to even make website.

And I have no doubt that Mrs. A is great writer... you can see it in her posts!  (a couple of my favorite theories come from her thread!)

Thanks Juggy!  I'm not opposed to putting this up if it is of interest.  I received one comment on the EW.com board asking if there was a website where it was posted and could be printed.  I generally pointed them to this website, but it'll be a little tough to find.  Of course, it seems like it may have already passed its "date", but I will leave that to you.  Either way, thanks for the nice note.

Thanks man.  It's been kind of cool to flip over to the page and see it out there every now and then today.  A little surreal.  Just goes to prove it's not always the talented that get a little pub... it's the lucky!
