First!

Amy Lynn said...

I actually really like this print, but it doesn't scream LOST to me.

Zort70 said...

It's going to take a while to catch up with all the comments, but my initial recation of I'm not sold on this one is still with me.

Did anyone make a purchase in my name ? If they did of course I'll honour that, but I'm not convinced I want it. It may be one of those that looks better IRL.

Amy Lynn said...

Zort, I think we decided to hold off until you saw it.

Ray said...

Guys, tomorrow afternoon I'm going to be at the hospital visiting my grandmother after her surgery. I'll have my iPhone on me so I may be able to go for a print when it drops, but can anyone be a posterbuddy for me just in case? Really interested in a moss or a tan, otherwise I'll take my chances. Thanks!

ioioos said...

Zort, I saw Chris had a gut feel it might not be one for you.

How was the show? You've been busy on the entertainment front today!

Davide said...

Off topic, but LOST related.

Can someone PLEASE record the Jimmy Kimmel Special that will air after the finale?
I will see the finale with my friends 16 hours after it airs there in the US, but i don't want to miss the JKL special with all the cast.
Is there any chance i can find it online (megavideo, emule or something like those) on Tuesday?

Zort70 said...

ioioos, yes it has been a day of sitting on my backside watching the screen and stage.

I don't get to do that very often so it's a nice change. Plus there were only 5 people in the huge cinema earlier so it was nearly like a personal screening.

Zort70 said...

Thanks for thinking of me everyone, but I think you made the right choice.

Will said...

I also think that this will look much better in person. I like that these newer posters are really branching out with such different styles. I wasn't crazy about the Charlie print, but applaud the effort to include such a different visual approach.

Lisa-Maladylis said...

I think you will find the jimmy kimmel on you tube or even on all the lost web sites soon after the next day. someone will be able to tell you where to see it.

Zort70 said...

I just put a reminder on the front page that LOSTARGs will try and remain spoiler free for as long as possible after a new episode, so please dn't discuss it in the comments.

Hope it's a really good one tonight, I'm going to try and watch it as soon as I possibly can.

mungonna said...

Order # 128758...I was already sign in when it went live..so I got booted out..then went back in, hurried thru the process..got the white screen of death twice..both times, did not panic..waited a few seconds , hit refresh,,and slowly moved on..to the final okie dokie checkout news of being successful..like old times...Thanks Zort for a larger version..This one reminds me of stained glass approach..just mite be a window in a LOST Church. Hasn't sold out yet either..abit suprised..Its going to be tough to top Dangers Black Rock.

Another day closer to L.A.

mungonna said...

BTW...I may be one of the few who thought " Across The Sea"..was an excellent episode. For all the folks who insist on MIB having a name..his name is " Desire"..

MEL

The Kharma Initiative said...

The cinematic, dramatic angle combined with the colors reminds me of Indiana Jones. Anybody else? It's like Sawyer is looking at an enormous boulder about to run him over. I like it.

How many of us were enamored with and collected film posters in our early days? I think that explains our current unhealthy obsession with these screenprints. ;)

Cosmically Yours

Zort70 said...

TKI, yes Indiana Jones that's what was going round the back of my head.

Zort70 said...

MEL, I think across the sea is a good episode, I just don't know how to put in context yet, I think we are missing something that will make it great episode.

dylansdad said...

Across The Sea needed to set us up for the finale by making it clear what all these rules are about, how a candidate is ultimately chosen/selected as successor, what causes a name to be crossed off the list, why the Island needs to be protected, where the MIB would go if he left, etc.

If we had a relatively clear understanding of all the mechanics of the mythology, then we would have a handle on where the show was going in the final 3.5 hours and we could focus on the characters. It was interesting to see the history they showed us, but it really did not clear up as many of those questions as I had expected. I didn't hate the episode like some others, but I wish it had cleared things up rather than raising new questions and mysteries the week before the series ends. But hey--that's Lost for you...

scottbphilp said...

Phew. Up and on my way to work after a night of getting up every hour to check for prints. It would be hard to pretend I'm not completly crazy at this point.

I still don't think I'll be picking this one up even with the increased clarity of the morning light. I really like the art but having already bought 'Desmond' I can't really afford two in one week that I'll probably never put up anywhere.

Roswell said...

Oh God, I went to have dinner after passing on this print and I just couldn´t stop thinking about it and seeing it in my mind. Now I´m back at the computer and seeing it at the lostarg page and the more I look at it the more I like it... Sawyer is my fav male character and I love the colors. The style is weird, but if you get pass the lines crossing the characters, it´s just like a comic book-graphic novel style, with a view of the end of the cave (up where Flocke is) and another view of the exit (inside the rectangle where Sawyer is).
I think I´d like to buy it but problem is I only have the money for 1 print and I fear I will like one of the remaining 4 better.

Ahhh I don´t know what to do! If only shipping to my country was cheaper, I might be able to afford 2 prints, but it´s more than $30 for shipping each print >.<

scottbphilp said...

As for Across The Sea I loved it. My favorite episodes of Lost are the ones that are just great stories and no matter what we did or didn't learn during the episode I think Across The Sea was one of the best they ever told.

Davide said...

I seriously LOVE how Titus Welliver acts.
He's AWESOME.

@Roswell: buy it if you like, you'll regret later if you dont.
I didn't buy Smokey on the first run, and to have it i had to trade my JC for it 'cause i was FULL of regrets.

Buy it, and find 36$ from somewhere for the next you will like. :p

It's THE LAST WEEK OF LOST EVER.
I really don't mind spending money on it, now. :)

Roswell said...

@Davide, I hate you! (in a good way, I mean, lol) Because you are convincing me to buy it! lol
You just made me think: "right...$36 isn´t that difficult to get...and then I´d have 2 prints..."

Hmm... I think if it doesn´t sell out before I go to bed...I´ll give up and buy it.

MiddayShadows said...

dylansdad...ditto ditto ditto your take on Across the Sea. I didnt hate it but had the same feelings you did regarding lack of expected resolution.

~ ioioos....yes, the reason I think Wallce=Desmond=108 on the dial, somehow, is that it is a very Scottish name and we havent 'met' a Wallce' thus far on the show. Also because of the obvious association of Des to the hatch countdown. But youre right, I dont think he's the candidate - my guess there is Jack or Hurley , still. Kate is... an interesting possibility.

dylansdad said...

I looked at the Smoke Monster when it went up, and I passed on it. Then I went back later to look at it again and decided to go ahead and pick it up after all. It sold out minutes later. When it arrived and I saw it in person, my brain melted.

If you think you might like a print based on a small online image, I can tell you that it will be ten times more impressive in person--and when it's gone, it's gone. (At least for fifty bucks...)

MiddayShadows said...

@ MEL - Guy Burwell's work is very very reminiscent of a that 'stained glass approach' you refer to, yes! I hazzard to say you will not be disappointed.

The colour scheme of this poster is very close to his Flight of the Conchords poster that I have. Until I got that one, I did not realize how intricate the details were or that he used metallic inks , to amazing effect.

Happy LOST night all. Spoiler free mode acticvated....

Almost here...

Ray said...

Enjoy the episode tonight, everyone! You're going to love it!

mungonna said...

Concerning..Across The Sea..Zort , you bring up the perception that ,,how it fits into every thing isn't entirely known yet..Ahh,,but it does, imho. Heres how..the fable/ story is about the cost of breaking the Illusion. MIB paid dearly for calling out MomNot and her dimwitted Jacob.

Fascinating:,,MomNot says..they always want more,,as an excuse for not sharing..hiding the beautiful warm fuzzy Light..The previous episode, The Candidate, Helen tells Jack to let it go, back off, on searching for Anthony Cooper..She says..You saved his Life, isn't that enough? and Jack replies.." No..its Not enough..So, there is the link between Across The Sea and the rest...LOST is slowly raising the Veil Of Illusion..With some thought..it may occur..or at least , the idea may spring up..that our LOSTIES..how we perceive them,needs to be changed. MIB/ LOCKEZILLA,,would definetly see them as " encumbrances,,"..obstacles,,dead weights..since..Jacob brought them to the Island..In Other words, the LOSTies,,as their own worst enemies, begins to fit very well, as demonstrated in the Sub. Jck was the only one thinking out of the box. Yay for Jack. Sawyer wasn't..boom..Point being, the bomb was a test..jack passed the test.b ut nobody else did..maybe Sayid..afterall he did let Jack know that he passed the test,,A+.

So the Veil of Illusion..that these Losties are meaning well and redeemable..is being lifted..Even when given the opportunity to change,,redeem themselves..FAIL..They are encumbrances..obstacles,, their own..or Some body's ,,worst enemy.
The irony is of course in the total opposites of Island and Sideways..Locke In Wheel Chair is his worse enemy,,and Lockezilla on Island has the Losties as His Worst Enemys..

So.. this brings me back to the proposal I've been suggesting all along..neither reality presented is " real" in any sense..There is a 3rd reality in the wings ,,waiting,,resolution of the two realities in conflict..rising above both realities to a Truth..As we've known since very early on..jack will take us there.

Tonite's episode should do it..I know my SURREAL..so..either tonite or in the finale..Pretense will figure big time..# 23 foto in Andre Breton's Nadja pertains to Pretense,,and Jack's number is 23. His arc..thru All of LOST..has been one pretense, and letting it go,,and now he searches for whatto replace his former perspective with. In the sideway hes done well..Lets see if he can bring it home.

Davide said...

@Roswell, if you buy it, i'll wait for a picture of it :p

maven said...

I don't think anybody will be disappointed in tonight's episode!

Jeffrey said...

I just got 2 tickets to the NYC UCB Lost show this Saturday!!! I'm on the ucb mailing list, and the first 25 people to email the theatre got a pair of tickets!!!

Ray said...

ugh, i joined the mailing list today and didnt get the email :(

Amy Lynn said...

Jeffrey, any chance you have an address?

Ray said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Jeffrey said...

I think you guys may be out of luck for this since the mailing list went out to thousands of people hours ago, and only the first 25 responses get it, but the email is John@ucbcomedy.com

Ray said...

Weak....

Well I hope they still release them on DCAAPB like the UCB website says....

Ray said...

Just got a denied email. There is still hope:

Hello,

Unfortunately you were not one of the first twenty five people to respond for tickets to DHARMA STATION: UCB - A LOST Comedy Event. Please keep checking DamonCarltonAndAPolarBear.com for information on how you can make a reservation for this show.

Thanks,

Amy Lynn said...

Denied here, too. Damn.

Ray said...

Amy Lynn,

We're gonna have to remain extra vigilant on the DCAAPB site I guess...

Amy Lynn said...

Sigh, LOL.

I hope everyone enjoy's tonight's episode. I'm off to make buttermilk fried chicken for dinner and watch!

andalone said...

Paul Scheer just tweeted about tickets for UCB Comedy Event.

"On MAY 22nd at 10PM in NYC and LA the UCB THEATER will time travel to the mysterious island from LOST and transform in a fully operational Dharma Station.

This one night only event. Will never be seen again. Your favorite stars from LOST (live and via videotape) will perform alongside your favorite comedians on stage in a night of LOST themed Comedy.

Each show is totally totally different and unique. Which side will you choose?

If you’d like a chance to be a candidate, log on to damoncarltonandapolarbear.com tonight after the episode ends (10PM EST) and look for the special password that will let you gain you access to this special event.

Tickets are FREE but limited to space and availability.

NAMASTE!! "

Amy Lynn said...

Thanks, andalone.

andalone said...

You're welcome! Wish there was a cool finale-related event somewhere near me. :(

collarinim2@scranton.edu said...

Looks like these are going fairly quickly - Only 150 left.

Weinbeeezy said...

@Karma... you never emailed me back about finding out how many posters are left :[ did you forget about me...

Weinbeeezy said...

@Karma... you never emailed me back about finding out how many posters are left :[ did you forget about me...

Weinbeeezy said...

@collarinim... how do you know how many are left?

Ray said...

Oh what do UCB lovers know about F5? Amy Lynn....you and I are going to CRUSH THIS! I've got my fingers crossed for us!

Weinbeeezy said...

wait wait.. is the password at the end of the episode or on the website? if its on the episode, can the east coasters please pass the info along?

Ray said...

Weinbeeezy

Its going to be on DCAAPB.com, not on the ep.

Weinbeeezy said...

@Ray so you will be helping us west coasters out?

Ray said...

Weinbeezy you should be able to look atthe website too, right? I'll make sure to pass the word along after I do it.

collarinim2@scranton.edu said...

If you keep clicking add to cart, it will add multiple quantities of the poster. You can keep clicking it pretty much as fast as you can click and it will keep upping the # in your cart. Click a hundred times, check your cart to see if there is a message that there aren't enough (It will appear right above where it says "Your Shopping Cart") and say "Sorry, There is only 141 left in stock, please change your quantity for item #2880 and continue with check out."

BTW - there are only 141 left now ;)

Weinbeeezy said...

@Ray... jus sayin we need to work together here... "live together, die alone"

Rorschach said...

So will the West Coast password be up at the same time as the East Coast one?

I need to get into that show and by "need", I mean "would really, really like".

Ray said...

Yup! Sounds like both are going up at once!

JPL said...

Happy Lost Night. Picked up The Candidate Cave. :)

And received emails that posters are starting to ship!

Ray said...

nothing yet...

Amy Lynn said...

Where be the code????

Ray said...

F5F5F5

Weinbeeezy said...

the website is running faster than ever

Davide said...

10PM EST is in an hour?

Weinbeeezy said...

no its not

maven said...

Won't they come up after the west coast sees it?

Weinbeeezy said...

well mr.shear said eastern

Lisa-Maladylis said...

code is 8607 but I have no verizon phone so I can't do it. It's for verizon phone holders only :-(

Ray said...

uh where do you see that

Amy Lynn said...

Lisa, where did you get that code?

vedder said...

how do we get tickets? I have verizon

Lisa-Maladylis said...

Oh shoot, the code was on the Lost show for sending a message to be shown in the last show on sunday, not for tickets

Davide said...

that code is from a spot, useless

Ray said...

DONT SCARE US

Amy Lynn said...

I'm tempted to write Quarantine.

Lisa-Maladylis said...

so sorry, I thought you were asking about the code on the Lost show they have been telling everyone about geeze !

Ray said...

Haha Lisa I wasnt really mad - sorry!

Ray said...

anyone know where to write the code?

Amy Lynn said...

Ray - http://newyork.ucbtheatre.com/reservations/create/16970

Lisa-Maladylis said...

Oh good, sorry. been a lonnnnnnggggg day. I'm off to bed, hope you find your code. I'm still trying to figure out how to use mine. :/

maven said...

I have Verizon for my land line, but AT & T for iPhone. Would it work?

Anne said...

Either they didn't upload it or they've hidden it REALLY WELL. lol.

vedder said...

hope they put p the code soon

Larry said...

Just tried quarantine - definitely doesn't work!

Anne said...

Tend to overthink these things, wondered if there was a stereogram in the box above the logo XD They never work for me.

Anne said...

On the UCB LA page for the event, it says the TICKETS are only available thru DCaaPB. Paul Scheer said AFTER 10PM EST, not AT 10PM EST . . . I probably don't have the patience to do this twice in one day .lol.

Ray said...

No way. This is insane.

AteamBlog.com said...

Man, I jumped out of my Space Mountain rocket and rushed home from Disneyland to sit here and hopelessly F5. Grrrr....

Lisa-Maladylis said...

nope, won't work Maven :P

Davide said...

goodnight everybody, 4.20AM here.
Long day tomorrow.

Larry said...

I'd hope it's somewhat tough to decipher as well - keep it with the true fans and in homage to the original poster series.

Ray said...

getting impatient.

JPL said...

For old times sake, checked the HUB on original site... nothing. :(

Maybe another 10:42 reveal?

Weinbeeezy said...

JPL.. LOL i checked it too!

Scoutpost said...

So no password yet? I thought I must've missed it. Just got back on the computer.

vedder said...

scheer posted on his site that it will be coming up soon

Michael said...

Is there anybody who'll be on for the next few hours who would mind texting my cell as soon as the password goes up?? I'd be hugely appreciative...

vedder said...

also posted that it is only 2 per person

Andrew said...

I need a password!!!!

Scoutpost said...

Oh so all I have to do is sit here and f5 until the password shows up- hey wait a minute....

Larry said...

Odds it is populated in that temporary pop up box?

Anne said...

Thought that too, someone earlier said it's a glitch from reg GoMerch sites. So maybe, maybe not.

Aristides said...

From paul scheer
paulscheer

Those waiting for LOST tickets. There is a technical Glitch. More Details are coming. Our Apologies

Scoutpost said...

No I think that may be it. I just refreshed and the box stuck there for a second, but nothing was in it yet...

Rorschach said...

So I have been refreshing for 40 minutes for no good reason?

Amy Lynn said...

FAIL

vedder said...

paul says there is a glitch...so not sure when it will be up

Scoutpost said...

Technical glitch...never heard of such a thing.

Anne said...

Can we all put "experienced with F5" on our resumes?

Scoutpost said...

what do we do with the password once we get it? or will they tell us?

AteamBlog.com said...

Scheer also posted on his blog:

***UPDATE - THE PASSWORD IS COMING. MORE DETAILS ONCE I KNOW THEM! (Also only 2 reservations per person)

Amy Lynn said...

@Scoutpost : http://newyork.ucbtheatre.com/reservations/create/16970

Ray said...

That link amy sent out is only for NY - check the LA site for the LA one.

Rorschach said...

I just substituted "losangeles" for "newyork" and it took me to what I hope is the LA reservation page. Looks right anyway.

Amy Lynn said...

This sucks.

Ray said...

This week might kill me.

Larry said...

Ugh...

Scoutpost said...

It's like it wants to give me the password so bad, but it just can't. :(

AteamBlog.com said...

@Rorschach
I think that's still the NY one. It says the event is 10:30. The LA event is supposedly at 10:00.

Ray said...

Theres a link to the LA site on the NY page link - in the upper right.

Rorschach said...

@ateam
You may be right, but I can't find the page for LA otherwise. It does say Los Angeles in the banner up top.

Ray said...

heres the LA link:

http://losangeles.ucbtheatre.com/shows/2383

Rorschach said...

@ray
I have that page, but where do you enter the password/make a reservation on it? There doesn't seem to be a link... or I might be an idiot.

Scoutpost said...

wow...major fail..

Anne said...

Paul says they haven't fixed glitch, when they do he'll post time for when password is posted

http://paulscheer.com/post/611508070/update-7-54pm-pst-their-is-a-ticketing-error

Ray said...

***UPDATE - 7:54PM(PST) Their is a ticketing error on the UCB website which will screw up the reservations. Once it is fixed. I’ll post an official announcement of when the password is up

Larry said...

Will he tweet it? Otherwise I'm just stuck refreshing his site to find out when...

Aristides said...

The problem is the ticket limits

Larry said...

@Aristides - My guess as well. Limit two but we can choose ten...

Larry said...

website just changed...

Larry said...

all the art and shirts are gone? anybody else seeing that?

Rorschach said...

dcapb now has a weird filter option on it.

Larry said...

now it's back with only art, no header

Ray said...

i think theyre riting a note and then theyre going to push the art over to the right when its finished.

Anne said...

Hahah, things keep breaking on the DCaaPB site (filter products showed up, header now gone). Someone on the other end is frantically at work ;)

Scoutpost said...

haha header's back

Larry said...

and it's back...

Andrew said...

The site is back to normal..

Larry said...

haha - and it's gone again!

Andrew said...

Ope never mind. Banner's gone again.

Anne said...

So long as no one decides the only solution is to nuke the electromagnetic abnormality, it'll be fine in the end...

Rorschach said...

do I dare brave a cigarette break and possibly have to try to score these on an iPhone?

Scoutpost said...

I gotta tell ya...I'm pretty darn sick of looking at this website today.

Larry said...

What a mess...

Larry said...

On a side note, the more I look at the Cave, the more I love it - fantastic detail

Ray said...

Got em. Thank God.

Andrew said...

FINALITY is the code. Doesn't work though :(

maven said...

Is it "finality"?

maven said...

Didn't work for me either.

Amy Lynn said...

Can't get it to work

Ray said...

DONT copy and paste it - also, I had to close the page I had open and open it from scratch bc I guess they must have changed the coding. try starting over.

Ray said...

Also, I didnt do it in all caps.

Andrew said...

@Ray it doesnt work either way for me :\

Amy Lynn said...

Doesn't work

Jeffrey said...

Spell it "Finality"

maven said...

Does not work no matter what I do.

Weinbeeezy said...

@RAy... your in NY right?

Amy Lynn said...

DONE!

geekboypress said...

Got em!

Anne said...

What? I still don't see anything! Gah.

Larry said...

@AMY - did yours go thorugh?

Ray said...

Yeah, I'm in NY so thats the one I did.

The first time I tried, I had copied and pasted and it didnt work. Then I closed the window and tried "make a reservation" again. typed in Finality and it worked.

Ray said...

Yay its working for people now!

Ray said...

dont forget to confirm your reservation via email!!!!!

Amy Lynn said...

So happy! Whooo. See you on Saturday night!

vedder said...

got em

Michael said...

Thanks for the heads up, Jeffrey

maven said...

Maybe the LA one doesn't work yet?

Larry said...

That's the key

it's "Finality" not finality or FINALITY

Amy Lynn said...

Paul's website says only NYC tickets are avail right now.

Scoutpost said...

can somebody give me the la link again?

Anne said...

LA's not working? But there's still nowhere to put in for LA. SO CONFUSED

i'm LOST said...

CAN YOU FIND ME?

Andrew said...

Got em. Awesome. Thanks guys.

Larry said...

also, make sure you go to your email and confirm it!

maven said...

LA show is SOLD OUT!

Anne said...

Are they waiting for LA tix until after West Coast airing?

Rorschach said...

I got a confirmation for LA, use the new york link and substitute losangeles for newyork. Email shows all the right info for the LA theater.

Scoutpost said...

I can't get the reservation page to work for LA either

Anne said...

That says the show is sold out.

i'm LOST said...

CAN YOU FIND ME??

Scoutpost said...

yeah LA show is sold out

Scoutpost said...

Well that was a huge waste of time....

Weinbeeezy said...

Rorshach.. paul sheer said it didnt work... so why are you lieing to us?

JPL said...

Fail on my part. Had the window open, kept entering, closed the window, reopened the window, still nothing. Closed, reopened, typed password... SOLD OUT!

It's fate... means I'm fated to get last 4 posters (if I like them)!

Have fun everyone!

Anne said...

Okay so I never even SAW the password except here and the show still sold out? >_<

Weinbeeezy said...

i dont believe its sold out... the password wasnt for us

Ray said...

DCAAPB is back to normal

Sorry to hear JPL :(
I'll keep my fingers crossed for the final 4 prints for you!

Well that was a hell of a day. Two F5 periods. Brain hurts.

Ray said...

GOOD NEWS FOR LA!

***UPDATE -8:26 (PST) A Different Password for LA might be coming. LA is currently unable to take reservations.

Scoutpost said...

Paul Scheer says on his blog that LA is unable to get tickets right now and separate password is coming for us

Scoutpost said...

yeah...what Ray said. ;)

Anne said...

Paul says LA couldn't take reservations. I don't even know. This stuff is starting to really wear on me lol, even though I know it's by choice.

maven said...

Another frustrating attempt! :(

i'm LOST said...

CAN YOU FIND ME?

maven said...

Oh, so there's still hope?

Anne said...

Can NYC people please tell us WHERE you saw the password? I never saw the NYC one either.

JPL said...

@Ray - best thing is we get to do it all over again tomorrow. Will it be 1:08EST or PST time? Only time & GOMERCH will tell us.

Night All!!!

Amy Lynn said...

@Larry, YES! We will be there!

Scoutpost said...

so now how long I wonder until the LA password...after the show airs in LA or do we need to keep refreshing...ugh- I'm with you Anne.

Amy Lynn said...

@Anne, it was on DCAAPB, in white writing. They had taken down all the art, kept the header. You'll know it when you see it.

Scoutpost said...

Anne- I saw the password at the top under the header for a brief time after I f5'd
