Episode 5x03 / Hanso?
« on: January 28, 2009, 11:56:28 PM »

So with these new developements, where exactly does Hanso fit into this?

Between Alpert/Locke/Ben and Widmore and Whomever Brought the Bomb?

they will not pass by the wayside, as likely not, but where are they fitting in?

Just another interloper on the Isle?

Episode 5x03 / the 1954 happening?
« on: January 28, 2009, 11:23:06 PM »

So, in 1954, did Locke's visit with the other survivors start the chain reaction that is Lost?

What happened when the flash came and these "prisoners" disappeared?

Did fate collect them on a plane and deliver them?

From today's Chicago Tribune:

I do not watch BSG, for no reason other than...well I do not have a reason.

Know some people here do, and might find this interesting....

Websites / Last Shooting Day of This LOST season...

From Jorge Garcia's blog...Posted May 9th...


Well folks. Assuming the two units finish everything on the schedule. And assuming that nothing accidentally goes through the x-ray machine at the airport. And nothing has to be re-shot next week after everything clears the lab...

Today is the last day of shooting on Season Four of LOST. (Whew!) We made it."

Does the docs body floating up on the isle prove the time differential?

my new "first check of the day" blog...

it gets censored, but you get the idea...type it in, get some perspective...take from it what you will.... ;D

Am wondering if any one has seen these films?
I've got access to two of them, just the time to see them has not been readily at hand. The stuff I've read of them though is intersting...

They are amongst a few things I've run across in reference to lost in the area of "influences" "references". Where, I do not remember exactly, they all carry elements related to the story presented here in this show. I've searched here and at Lostpedia and found no refs to them in either...(might need a bigger magnifying glass and Holmseian pipe though...)

As has been discussed as per influences vs. lifting directly vs. plagiarism, that only interests me persons influence is another's plagiarism...(as per the Slaughterhouse discussion, yet another story to dig out and read for me, interest piqued!!!)

In the historical context of the creation of the story they interest me...the same way one might like to know the influences of a favorite artist, thereby finding cool new artists/musical styles..
Or artists like following Andrew Wyeth back to Peter Hurd to Winslow Homer...Along the way picking up some real cool stuff.

I'll provide the wiki pages for the movies so they may be perused at your like should any have not seen them or heard of them.
Also if anyone has anything similar they'd like to share I would be most welcoming of that, as I am OCD about this stuff, and I NEED A FIX!!!! ;D

Thank you for your attention, you may now return to your regularly scheduled mayhem, misanthropy, anthropy or general fineness you were hitherto preoccupied.... ;)

LOST Talk / Lost in the News...
« on: March 12, 2008, 12:17:49 PM »
From the Chicago Trib today:

"Anything can happen on "Lost" -- it's the perfect show to be breaking new narrative ground, because its viewers have proved their willingness to be both loyal and intelligent."

yay! after years of just saying it to myself and any who would listen before trying to kick my a$#, I've validation that yes, I am intelligent!!!

The paragraph preceding the above quote:

"This season the "Lost" writers, led by producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof, are incorporating the future into the drama every week. The action on the mysterious island is now punctuated with events taking place long afterward, when six characters from the Oceanic 815 plane crash -- among them, Jack, Kate, Hurley and Sayid -- have made it back home. What had been the present tense for the show's first three seasons -- the initial months after the crash -- is now becoming the past. The "Lost" time scheme is so thoroughly up in the air, it can take the viewer a moment or two to figure out where in time we are when an episode begins. We're lost in space and, now, time.

For all we know, the off-island future may become the past by the end of the series, in 2010. Perhaps Jack, Kate and others will return to the island before the series finale, in effect recalibrating the current flash-forwards into flashbacks."

Theories & Speculation / Vile, Vile Vortices
« on: March 04, 2008, 02:09:53 AM »
"20th century Scottish naturalist Ivan Sanderson and the "vile vortices." In the 1970's, Sanderson was interested in how ancient sailors mapped the world, and in his studies kept coming across Bermuda Triangle-type accounts coming from a number of places around the globe (navigational instruments malfunction, lost time, odd lights, disappearing ships, etc.) Sanderson tracked where these incidents took place, and found they occurred in a regular frequency around the world, primarily in five equally-spaced regions around the Tropic of Capricorn, five around the Tropic of Cancer, and at each of the poles. He called them the vile vortices.

In the past, cartographers often overlaid polyhedral grids on maps in order to have a clear picture of coordinates and to orient themselves (and maybe they still do). In the Timaeus, Plato even argued that the elements were made up of five regular polyhedral solids: the tetrahedron (pyramid), hexahedron (cube), octahedron (eight-sided diamond), the twelve-sided dodecahedron, and the twenty-sided icosahedron; think of the Bucky Fuller geodesic dome inside the Swan Station. Sanderson noted that when an icosahedron was mapped onto the globe, the points where the icosahedral lines converged pinpointed those twelve vile vortices."

The above is from that mad mad mad man who wrote that "Living Lost" book....J.Wood

Spoiler Theories and Speculation / a cage?
« on: March 02, 2008, 04:23:33 PM »
So, will Dan & Char be trying to open or close the island(ala a faraday cage) in the power station when Jules tries to stop them? Accounts for the light scatter Dan mentioned...could they be trying to fix it to not be found again..?

General Spoiler Talk / Forward Flashes
« on: February 22, 2008, 07:49:16 PM »

Will repost this here, as I am not sure it is or isn't a spoiler discussion....But it does throw a wrench in alot of the theory and spec going on...
i.e. "when is Jack going to lose it and grow a beard?"

Apparently he already had by the time last nights flash forwards happened....hmmmmmmmmm

In the EW interview, did they not say that the flash forwards were not bounced around in time? They were in order....

Then that would mean Jack's bearded meltdown happened before visiting Hurley and Kate's trial...

or did I just miss something completely?Huh?

"CUSE: Lost is complex and dense, but we are very conscious of the limits. If we are going to jump time, we're not going to jump narrative order within the time jumps, too."
