Tue, 16 Mar 2010 09:35:00 ESTWhat is the island? Years ago, the writers had teased us and hinted that it might not in actuality be an island. Things got more exciting a few weeks ago when Kristin of Eonline told us that the island could be described by a 4 letter word with no A's and no E's After running a word find program for Scrabble players, I discovered that there were over 1500 such words in the English language. One word stood out immediately and I knew the answer. The island is a... HOOT aka something or someone uproariously funny or absurd. Amazingly, this theory was bolstered when Kristin later added that the word contained the letter O.
Tue, 16 Mar 2010 09:26:00 ESTSome of our long lost friends really are returning. According to EW.com:
Sun, 21 Feb 2010 08:00:00 ESTJorge Garcia (Hurley on LOST) is recording a very enjoyable (for us LOST fans) podcast called Geronimo Jack's Beard. Jorge and his sidekick Bethany James Leigh Shady discuss the scripts as they receive them. There are absolutely no spoilers since the podcasts are not aired live and the recordings are not released until after the show airs.
Sun, 21 Feb 2010 08:13:00 ESTAndrea Gabriel (Nadia on LOST) has a new web site at www.AndreaGabriel.info. There's a great clip from her recent appearance on House MD (where she exhibits some comedic skills) as well as a number of Nadia scenes from LOST.
Tue, 09 Feb 2010 23:07:00 ESTMatt Mitovich has posted a new interview with Michael Emerson on fancast.com! Could it be true? Smokey can't kill Ben?
Tue, 02 Feb 2010 06:38:00 ESTAl Trautwig is back with more LOST theorizing. Is LOST a game between Jacob and Esau? Has it been escalating for centuries and will the game now be forced to conclude? Will we see a nine foot tall basketball player on LOST? (no - not really). Should Al Trautwig write for TV? (I think so.)
Wed, 09 Dec 2009 04:14:00 ESTAs of this writing, there is an interesting auction on eBay. Sterling Beaumon, (who plays 'young Ben' on LOST) with help from the people at the LOST writer's office, is donating real LOST memorabilia to benefit two charities: the Starlight Chlidren's Foundation and LA's Best.
Thu, 03 Dec 2009 01:48:00 ESTIf William Atherton returns to Dragon*Con, he may find a lot of LOST fans at his autograph table. According to TV Guide, William Atherton has signed on to guest star on LOST next year.
Sun, 11 Oct 2009 21:13:00 ESTSeveral months ago, I spoke to someone closely involved with the production of LOST. "Hey!" I said. "You know what LOST fans would really like to see? - A show completely different from LOST, but with all of the same actors!"
Fri, 02 Oct 2009 19:41:00 ESTCertainly LOST has influenced other television shows and that's why I'm looking forward to watching Stargate Universe tonight. Take a look what's being said about the new SyFy series.
Wed, 23 Sep 2009 03:52:00 ESTMichael Emerson will be on the Bonnie Hunt Show today (Wednesday Sept 23). If your TiVo still says that Betty White will be on the show, don't believe it! Somehow, she has been replaced by Michael Emerson.
Mon, 21 Sep 2009 11:35:00 ESTSo many of us were hoping that Michael Emerson would win the best supporting actor award and last night (Sunday, Sep 20) he pulled it off. He gave a short speech while his wife, Carrie Preston, looked very happy. Carlton Cuse could also be seen in the audience. Naturally, he was all smiles. LOST didn't win for best drama, but this was still a very good night for Michael Emerson and by extension, LOST.
Mon, 14 Sep 2009 07:49:00 ESTAccording to this article in The Guardian, LOST is very very popular in Iran and it appears that it will even be aired on Iranian TV.
Sun, 30 Aug 2009 18:54:00 ESTPOPCANDY has a funny piece called What if your favorite 'Lost' characters were superheroes? It's quite entertaining. Try guessing which superhero they picked for Hurley, then read further.
Fri, 14 Aug 2009 06:53:00 ESTTom from planettom sent me this link. Think about it! What would the opening credits for LOST look like and sound like if LOST had been produced in 1967.
Tue, 28 Jul 2009 18:14:00 ESTHere's a great Comic-Con video from EW.com! Elizabeth Mitchell is sitting with the cast of V and Morena Baccarin (of FireFly fame!) is sitting next to her. There is also some LOST discussion and Mitchell confirms that she will be back on LOST for an unspecified number of episodes. She also credits the fans and explains that the producers do listen to fans of the show.
Thu, 30 Jul 2009 00:17:00 ESTThere was some more big news from ComicCon yesterday (Saturday). It looks like a real fan favotite will be returning to LOST in Season 6. There are few details available, but at a panel for the CW series, Vampire Diaries, Ian Somerhalter was asked whether he would return for LOST's final season and this was his answer:
Fri, 24 Jul 2009 00:43:00 ESTThe Emmy Awards ceremony will take place on September 20 and LOST is still up for the Outstanding Drama category. Now we know the 6 LOST episodes that have been submitted for consideration. They are as follows:
Thu, 23 Jul 2009 23:53:00 ESTSome LOST fans do more than just watch the show!
Tue, 30 Jun 2009 23:04:00 EST
Fri, 12 Jun 2009 04:55:00 ESTWomen's Health Magazine has provided us with a tremendous number of quotes from their interview with Evangeline Lilly. Evangeline isn't at all shy during the interview. She's a nice girl, but occasionally drops an F-bomb or two during the conversation. Keep in mind that LOST.com has replaced the F-bomb and any other curse words with the Red Dwarf generic sci-fi swear word: Smeg.
Sun, 07 Jun 2009 04:13:00 ESTFor LOST fans, there's still time to catch Sterling Beaumon (Young Ben on LOST) at the El Centro Theatre in Hollywood. He plays the part of Josh's friend Billy in the musical adaptation of the Tom Hanks movie: BIG, and the reviews of Sterling's performances are good.
Wed, 20 May 2009 01:44:00 ESTAccording to TVGuide.com, Steve McPherson (ABC's entertainment president) stated that Elizabeth Mitchell will be seen on both LOST and the new remake of V next year!
Tue, 12 May 2009 10:20:00 ESTWhat can I say? I love this! There's something about LOST fans and creativity!
Sat, 04 Apr 2009 09:15:00 ESTThe LOST Weekend Fan Party of 2009 in Los Angeles is underway and it's heaven for LOST fans. It's a world where everyone speaks the language of LOST. We go up the elevator, we go down the elevator. Flashbacks, flashforwards, flashes of light, puzzling nosebleeds and Roger Linus - they're all parts of the LOST lexicon and we all speak the language.
Tue, 31 Mar 2009 09:13:00 ESTJeff Jensen and Dan Snierson are eating the Dharma peanut butter and they're Totally LOST and while they probably wouldn't shoot young Ben, or anyone else for that matter, they're not beyond giving him an atomic wedgie. You might notice that Totally LOST is a spoof of one or more movie critic TV shows, but it's more, of course, because they're LOST fans. When they're not playing crazed LOST fans on Totally LOST, they're probably crazed LOST fans in real life. If you haven't seen them yet, be sure to check them out here and remember drama is easy, but totally deadpan humor is very very hard!
Wed, 18 Mar 2009 08:32:00 ESTYesterday was a fun day. For about 18 minutes I stopped working in the salt mines and called LOST actor Sterling Beaumon on the phone for an arranged interview. It's difficult to hear my part of the conversation since my cell phone was nearly out of range, however Sterling (who plays young Ben on LOST) comes in mostly loud and clear. Tonight's episode (3/18/2009) , Namaste, is the first of a 4 episode character arc involving young Ben. The first 3 episodes are entitled Namaste, He's Our You and Dead is Dead while the title of his 4th episode may possibly be top secret. He confirms the story that an actor revealing show secrets is subject to a 5 million dollar fine and adds that such an actor would no longer appear in the show. Yikes!
Thu, 12 Mar 2009 07:25:00 ESTLOST fans will be in for quite a treat on March 18 with the airing of the episode entitled 'Namaste.' Sterling Beaumon will reprise his role as 'young Ben Linus' and the episode will actually be the first of a 4 episode character arc that begins with Ben Linus, the sweet little boy. Then something very bad happens and Ben will be affected by a group of people who incredibly are not the Others or Dharma, yet we have seen them! In a TV Guide interview, Sterling mysteriously says that there is one safe place on the island but it isn't Jacob's cabin and it isn't the Hatch.
Thu, 05 Mar 2009 08:44:00 ESTEven though there is only one person in the world named Reiko Aylesworth, it didn't occur to me while watching the episode 'LaFleur' that the Reiko Aylesworth who is playing Amy is also the same Reiko Aylesworth who played Michelle on 24! It was only after reading an article on TV Guide.com, that I came to that sudden realization.
Tue, 03 Mar 2009 09:58:00 ESTAl Trautwig is an award winning commentator well known for his coverage of the Knicks, the NY Rangers and the Yankees as well as the last 8 Olympic games. Fortunately, for LOST fans, he has extended his coverage to the wildly enigmatic and mysterious world of LOST. You can now find his thoughts on LOST on MSG.com.
Mon, 23 Feb 2009 00:02:00 ESTIf everything goes according to plan, a new module will be attached to the International Space Station in less than a year. As for now, it doesn't have a name and NASA has asked the public (google the word public relations) to suggest a name for the module.
Sat, 14 Feb 2009 06:51:00 ESTI just received an email from Paola Pozzessere who owns and operates a website called notinwords.com. She has created a video without words called 'LOST For Dummies.' I receive a lot of video links via email and this one is excellent. It's tastefully done and it's fun to watch. In a word, it's just cool! Show it to all of your friends who haven't seen LOST! Wait - you have friends who haven't seen LOST?
Tue, 10 Feb 2009 09:55:00 ESTWe always knew that many of the names on LOST already meant something. The names Locke, Rousseau and Bentham are all names of philosophers. Whenever I heard the name Richard Alpert, I always thought about Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. Incredibly, by pure chance, several days ago I stumbled across the name Richard Alpert while re-reading a book called The Holographic Universe.
Sat, 07 Feb 2009 03:45:00 ESTI used to think that photography had become a lost art, but that may not be true. There is a very nice photo gallery of Matthew Fox and Evangeline Lilly on EW.com that is enough to remind anyone that photographs can be art.
Fri, 23 Jan 2009 01:15:00 ESTThere's a very funny show on NBC called 'Chuck' and an interview on TVaholic.com reveals that both Zachary Levi (Chuck) and Joshua Gomez (Morgan) are huge LOST fans. There has also been at least one reference to LOST (flight 815) in the show. So, it's interesting to note that Dominic Monaghan will be playing a rock star in the upcoming February 2 episode of Chuck.
Tue, 13 Jan 2009 22:25:00 ESTSaturday Night Magazine has a nice interview with Jorge Garcia. It sounds like Season 5 will have a complicated plot, so get ready to watch it again on your TiVo or ABC.com.
Mon, 05 Jan 2009 02:09:00 ESTC'est encore un puzzle où l'on ne va en apprendre sur les personnages que petits bouts par petits bouts. Dans la seconde moitié, votre patience sera récompensée! - Evangeline Lilly (She speaks French!!)
Season 5 of LOST begins at 8PM with a clip show and
then, the much awaited Season 5 premiere begins at 9PM and continues
for 2 hours! Evangeline Lilly in TVMag.com tells
us that the first part is complicated like a puzzle that slowly reveals itself as more pieces are added. She asks us to be patient because we
will be rewarded in hour 2.
No doubt, something truly shocking will happen at the end of the 2nd hour and we'll be talking about it until the next episode begins.
How Far Would You Go?
Mon, 29 Dec 2008 08:39:00 ESTWhat can I begin to say about this promo? What is important enough to make Desmond leave Penny again? Sayid, Jack, Hurley, Sun, and Kate with Aaron; they're all going back and with the possible exception of little Aaron, they're all in a hurry!
and it appears that Penny has a baby!
... January 21!
LOST Season 5 Preview Featuring Kate
Sat, 13 Dec 2008 22:33:00 ESTI've spent the last three years trying to forget all the horrible things that happened on the day that we left. How dare you ask me to go back? - Kate
Will Kate change her mind and return to the island with Jack? There's a new preview clip from ABC and it suggests that the answer may be yes.
Son of LOST
Tue, 09 Dec 2008 22:55:00 ESTTVGuide is reporting that Josh Holloway and his wife, Yessica, are expecting their first child.
Everything's going to change. - Jin
The LOST Season 4 DVD (My Expanded Experience)
Mon, 08 Dec 2008 07:48:00 EST----- excerpt -----
It begins with a true LOST event in Hawaii at the Waikiki Shell with thousands in attendance. Carlton Cuse introduces the event, Terry O'Quinn reads notes from a bottle, a hatch opens, torch bearers (The Others) run through the audience and the music of LOST is played by the Honolulu Symphony Pops Orchestra. It was more than an event for LOST fans. It was an event for anyone who appreciates good music. In a world where most of the music on TV is synthesized, LOST excels tremendously by using an orchestra. It wouldn't be LOST without the music and Michael Giacchino is truly a genius.
LOST Fan Meets O'Quinn at Denver Airport
Fri, 05 Dec 2008 10:25:00 ESTOnce again, Terry O'Quinn has proved to us why he is such a fan favorite. Recently, Rose, one of the message board contributors to this web site, spotted O'Quinn at the Denver airport. She approached him and reports that he was very kind and gracious. He shook her hand and gave her a hug.
Hopefully O'Quinn will be spending time in Hawaii. We do know that he recently did an episode with Lance Reddick, so that should be interesting.
These days, Rose can be spotted walking on air somewhere in the vicinity of Cloud 9.
Red Carpet LOST Season 5 Reveals
Wed, 24 Sep 2008 04:37:00 ESTThanks go to TV Guide for some great Emmy 2008 Red Carpet interviews. Michael Emerson has something to say about the location of the island and Emilie de Ravin is taking a break from LOST after 4 years.
Jorge Garcia - Season 5 Shocking!
Mon, 22 Sep 2008 08:29:00 ESTKristin of E! Online has news from the Emmys. During the pre-parties, she reports that Jorge Garcia was shocked when he saw the 1st 5 scripts of Season 5. Daniel Dae Kim also revealed that there were serious consequences to moving the island! Some would suffer physically and others would suffer mentally. Remember, in episode 12, we had the following exchange between Hurley and Ben:
HURLEY: Well, if you could move the island whenever you wanted, why didn't you just move it before the psychos with guns got here?
BEN: Because doing it is both dangerous and unpredictable. It's a measure of last resort.
In an almost completely unrelated Emmy story we learn from the Rocky Mountain News that Emilie de Ravin wore a lovely shade of blue to the event, while the Chicago Tribune described it as an old-ladyish blue number with clunky layers at the bottom. The LA Times liked the emerald-green strapless BCBG and Jimmy Choo shoes that she wore at the pre-party before the big event.
A New ABC TV Series Called Flash Forward?
Sat, 20 Sep 2008 03:28:00 ESTHer skin was even paler than normal, and her voice was quavering as she spoke. “There won't be any ambulances,” she said. “Not anytime soon, anyway. The emergency operator told me they're all tied up in Geneva. Apparently every driver on the roads blacked out; they can't even begin to tally up how many people are dead.”
- from the book Flash Forward by Robert J. Sawyer
According to Hollywood Reporter, ABC may soon have a deal to launch a new series based on the above Robert J. Sawyer novel. They're calling it a 'companion' to LOST. Will it air following or preceding LOST? It does seem like a good candidate. Many LOST viewers might easily be attracted to a drama with a sci-fi angle to it.
Flash Forward would tell the story of a world where a science experiment causes everyone to black out for 2 minutes and seventeen seconds. During the blackout, they have mysterious visions that seem to correspond to future events.
Two New Season 5 Actors
Mon, 15 Sep 2008 10:14:00 ESTShortly after EW.com reported the addition of Zuleikha Robinson to the Season 5 cast, we now learn that the second half of the duo will be played by Saïd Taghmaoui. Yes - the characters played by these two will have some sort of connection. Taghmaoui plays the part of Caesar - a character who, according to producer Carlton Cuse, will play an important role in the setup for the final act of season 6.

Who's That With Jorge?
Sat, 30 Aug 2008 03:50:00 ESTWhy, it's Hayden Panettiere, of course! The video is from the August 9 Netflix Live on Location concert. See more pictures here! Yes, it's really true! Jorge can sing Mustang Sally and Hayden can dance!
Michelle Rodriguez Returns to LOST!
Mon, 25 Aug 2008 16:49:00 ESTtd width="385"> Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Michelle Rodriguez will most likely appear in episode 2 of Season 5. This episode also includes Cheech Marin (plays Hurley's dad) which raises the possibility that Ana Lucia may be appearing in a flashback. Then again, Libby appeared to Michael on the freighter. Doc Jenson is entertaining the idea that Ana Lucia had encountered Miles the psychic back in LA.

LOST Preview Special on G4 Tonight! (Friday)
Sat, 26 Jul 2008 01:58:00 ESTTonight (Friday, July 25), there will be a LOST Preview Special on G4. Remember - G4 and SciFi will be airing LOST from the beginning starting this fall. Be sure to tune in tonight, because Jeff (Doc)Jensen of Entertainment Weekly will be there and his theories of what is happening on LOST are almost as entertaining as the show itself.
The show begins at 10PM Eastern/7PM Pacific on G4.
New Rebecca Mader Interview
Sat, 19 Jul 2008 21:20:00 ESTAlmost a year ago, there was much speculation that Kristen Bell of Veronica Mars might be cast as a character by the name of Charlotte on LOST. Now, of course, it's difficult to imagine the part of Charlotte being played by anyone other that Rebecca Mader. Charlotte is the archaeologist who found the Dharma polar bear in Tunisia and later made quite a splash when she arrived on the island.
Thanks go to TV Guide for providing the video. Mader is a riot. There's a party going on in that redhead brain of hers and it's fun to watch. Now that Kate has returned to civilization, she's hoping that Charlotte sees more of Sawyer. I'm just hoping we see more of Charlotte next year.
... and what about that polar bear... could it have been pushing the frozen donkey wheel before arriving in Tunisia?
Funny Emerson Phone Call
Thu, 17 Jul 2008 22:29:00 ESTThis is excellent. I guess no matter how famous you are, you're always your mother's son.
Another Henry Gale
Tue, 15 Jul 2008 02:57:00 ESTI wasn't even looking for Henry Gale. I was looking for an old physics book so I was very surprised to see the name Henry Gale...
but there it was - in a physics book printed early in the 20th century. Since LOST has recently taken a turn deep into the world of physics and science fiction, might the writers have actually chosen the name from the physics professor: Henry Gordon Gale? Certainly, we've heard a few other names on the show from the world of physics - like Faraday & Casimir. Maybe Henry Gale is yet another. Then again, maybe he's just Dorothy's uncle on the Wizard of Oz.
The Others and the Mysterious Cable
Mon, 23 Jun 2008 02:40:00 ESTIt's been less than a month since the LOST season 4 finale and I'm already starting to see things that remind me of LOST everywhere. While driving back to work, I noticed a large curving column of smoke coming from an area near my office. I knew immediately that the Others were coming! Fortunately for me, the office was not on fire. A mile away, a farmer was plowing furiously while his field was on fire. The Others had not come... yet!
While watching Fool's Gold(image) , I couldn't help but think about the island. A scene with a bunny rabbit reminded me of Sawyer's bunny # 8 and Dr. Edgar Halliwax's bunny # 15. When Tess was being lowered into the blowhole, I was reminded of the scene where Locke lowered Kate into the Hatch!
Of course, this is the sort of thing that happens to plenty of LOST fans everyday. Then, while making a journey from my ofice to the another part of the building, I noticed something. It was a mysterious cable! I picked up the cable and followed it for what seemed like many miles (although it may have been 20 feet). That was when I discovered the terrible truth about my drinking water!
The MiddleMan Starts Tonight (6/16/2008)
Mon, 16 Jun 2008 09:41:00 ESTThe MiddleMan from LOST writer Javier Grillo-Marxuach begins tonight (6/16) at 8PM on ABC Family. Variety says that ABC Family targets females aged 12 to 34, but I laughed my head off watching the free iTunes download of the show.
Here are just a few reasons to watch the show tonight:
(1) Cool Gadgets
(2) Chloe (from 24)
(3) Talking gorillas
(4) That was some darned fine cow squirt
There seem to be a few larger mysteries already. There is one concerning Wendy's father. The other mystery - Now that we know the MiddleMan - who does he work for - who is number 1?
Could You Finance Widmore's Mini Army?
Sun, 08 Jun 2008 21:08:00 ESTUsusally, someone wealthy doesn't finance something unless it has a really good payoff. That's usually why they're rich in the first place. So, how much would it actually cost to finance Widmore's island expedition? The people at Mainstreet.com attempt to answer that question.
Leasing a 150 foot freighter for 3 months: 1.62 million dollars (US)
Naomi's Bell UH-1B helicopter: 4.7 million
Ray (doctor, deceased), $170,796
Keamy (mercenary, deceased), $60,000
Hendricks (freighter pilot, deceased), $58,158
Naomi (mercenary, deceased), $58,043
Miles (scientist), $58,043
Charlotte (scientist), $58,043
and so on. These are annual salaries, but certainly they could be considered hazard pay for the 3 month expedition. Mainstreet estimates the total cost at approximately 7.1 million (not counting fuel and artillery!). So, what is the payoff for Widmore? What is his game?
Read more from the Mainstreet.com article here!
Note: The cost of ABC's 2 hour LOST pilot episode is estimated to be between 10 and 14 million dollars.
7.1 million dollars!
LOST Alternate Coffins
Fri, 30 May 2008 09:15:00 ESTWell, this is weird!
I was betting that Jack would open the coffin and find his own doppelgänger staring back at him.
LOST Finale Secrets - Almost
Wed, 28 May 2008 19:46:00 ESTSomeone just emailed me a link to this article. It sounds like this year's finale will be an even bigger game changer than the season 3 season closer. Michael Emerson always has interesting things to say and he even shares some insights into his character on the show. In fact, he doesn't believe that Ben actually killed Nadia to get Sayid on his side. He may have just figured out a way to use the situation to his advantage. When you watch the show this Thursday, remember that Ben ALWAYS has a plan!
One more thing from Emerson regarding the finale: It's deep, dark and violent.
and I was hoping there would be another joyride scene with Hurley's van. Maybe next year! :)
Burglars Hit LOST.COM HQ
Sun, 25 May 2008 04:52:00 ESTLast weekend at about 2AM on Sunday, burglars smashed through the rear door of LOST.COM headquarters located at Century Road and Hwy 19 in Leesburg, GA. LOST.COM, of course, is a fan site not affiliated with ABC/Touchstone or Bad Robot. Most people, in fact, believe it to be a computer repair shop. In any case, evil monsters burst through the door and smashed a cash register filled with souvenir coins, a bunch of old movie ticket stubs, and another coin worth a free sundae at the Dairy Queen. Incredibly - NOTHING was stolen!!
No one seems to have ventured past the cash register and it's possible that something may have spooked them (see photo)!
The door is reinforced now. I'm planning to add a park bench and a picnic table on the sidewalk. Tiki carvings are beginning to appear here. Pretty soon, we'll have some nice Tiki torches. I'm starting to think this might be a nice place for a LOST island party!! It's just too bad that we've already cleaned up all of the volcanic ash that the police used to gather fingerprints here.
Josh Holloway on Kimmel
Fri, 16 May 2008 10:13:00 ESTJosh Holloway was on the Jimmy Kimmel Show last night. Interesting how he said that he was initially angry that Sawyer was not part of the Oceanic 6, but now realizes that he (Sawyer) is on the island and 'the island' is a very important character in the show
Wouldn't most LOST fans - given the choice - want to stay?
Evangeline Wins a Sub on Kimmel!
Thu, 15 May 2008 10:40:00 ESTNo kidding! Kimmel punched her Subway card and gave her a sub immediately! Lilly, of course, is a sport and a hungry sport at that. She took a huge bite and continued to devour the sandwich during the show. The next guest, being British, refused the pickle offered by Kimmel.
Oceanic 6 - it's catchy!
After wrapping for the season, Evangeline has some difficulty converting from Kate back to Evie!
Josh Holloway will be on Kimmel tonight (Thurs 5/15)
Evangeline Lilly Talks To Leno
Wed, 14 May 2008 09:37:00 ESTEvangeline was on the Tonight Show last night and she is funny! Here's the synopsis:
*** Jay doesn't understand how LOST can have a finale on Thursday night and ANOTHER finale next Thursday night!!
*** Evangeline talks about some disturbing childhood habits and then she demonstrates on the show!!!
*** She can renovate a house with a crowbar!!
*** She doesn't want to tip the valet!
*** She had another accident! LOST fans should pray for her safety!
*** Mold will make you ill!
*** A THREE HOUR FINALE!!
Mystery Tales No. 40 Skyrockets on eBay
Sun, 11 May 2008 10:45:00 ESTAfter decades of comic book abstinence, I've rediscovered comic books. While visiting my brother in Atlanta and celebrating his birthday, a mutual friend loaned a comic book called 'KillDozer' to my brother. So, while no one was watching, I read it quickly and was astonished to find a touching children's story of a possessed bulldozer that chases people and then KILLS THEM!!! I thought there was something fishy about the story, and then I remembered Tom (our mutual friend(image) ) telling us that it was actually based on a short story by Theodore Sturgeon(image) .
Less than a week later, I'm watching the Cabin Fever episode of LOST and John Locke's reincarnation test includes a comic book called Mystery Tales and it's amazing! It has an eerie cartoon illustration of a frightened man on an airliner and the words WHAT WAS THE SECRET OF THE MYSTERIOUS "HIDDEN LAND!"
I always loved that type of comic book. It brought back so many memories of riding in the trunk on long family vacations to Florida. I always read the comics slowly with a flashlight so they would last long enough for the trip.
In case you're wondering - yes - this particular comic book is skyrocketing in price on eBay. At the moment of this writing, I'm still the high bidder, but there are days left before the end of the auction. It should be interesting to watch.
New Show By LOST Writer to Premiere June 16
Wed, 07 May 2008 06:52:00 ESTLOST writer Javier Grillo-Marxuach has a new TV show called The Middleman set to premiere June 16 on ABC Family. The Middleman and Wendy Javi is a real favorite in the world of LOST fandom. He played DJ Dan during the LOST Experience alternate reality game, often talks to fans at Dragon*Con and has even been known to go bowling with the fans (getting us past the bouncer with his Jedi mind tricks). Besides writing for LOST, Javi has also written for Charmed, The Pretender, Boomtown, Jake 2.0 and others. He currently works with Glen Gordon Caron (of Moonlighting fame) on the hit NBC TV show, Medium, as both a writer and a co-executive producer. The Middleman idea has been with Javi for many years and became a reality after writer Paul Dini (also of LOST)convinced him to pursue the comic book route where it was published by Viper Comics. So you're probably wondering what The Middleman is all about. It looks cool and zany- but what could it really be about? If Spock were to mind-meld with Javier Grillo-Marxuach, what would he see? Here's my guess: The following scene takes place after Javi visits Damon, Burky and J.J. on the set of the new Star Trek movie. Shortly after Damon shows him the new transporter room, Grillo-Marxuach calmly steps into the transporter bay and shouts "ENERGIZE!!" Incredibly, he fades from our universe and into a very strange universe where Star Trek is real and the actors are fake! Dr. McCoy: Spock! Don't do it!! Spock: I must know. I must know why he is here! Spock raises one eyebrow. Javi reaches forward, touches Spock's face and raises Spock's other eyebrow. Javi now raises one eyebrow. Spock is undeterred. He reaches forward and touches Javi's face in the classic mind-meld fashion. Then he screams! [...]
Emilie de Ravin Interview on CW11
Thu, 01 May 2008 01:48:00 ESTEmilie de Ravin was on the CW11 Morning Show yesterday (4/28/2008). She talks about moving to the US, working in Hawaii (how it's like Queensland), reading the LOST scripts, and her new movie, Ball Don’t Lie, showing at the Tribeca Film Festival.
Her movie role is very un-Claire like as she plays the part of a bipolar prostitute. Bipolar characters on LOST travel from the Arctic to the Antarctic by way of Tunisia.
Code 14J - A Military Connection?
Fri, 25 Apr 2008 11:17:00 ESTMoments after Alex enters the code to shut down the sonic defense system, a phone rings in Ben's cabin. When Locke answers, he is greeted by a semi-mechanical voice reciting the message: Code 14J.
This is LOST, of course, and 14J is a clue, right?
According to Wikipedia, 14J is a job classification in the Air Defense Artillery Branch of the US Army. The career associated with the 14J classification is called Air Defense Tactical Operations Center Operator/Maintainer also known as an Early Warning System Operator.
Exactly! So - does this imply a military connection to the island, or is it just part of an elaborate plan by the writers to make us all stay up late looking up stuff like this! Hmmmm...
What is the Monster?
Fri, 25 Apr 2008 06:28:00 ESTLOCKE: What is the Monster?
LOCKE: The black smoke, the Monster, what is it?
BEN: I don't know.
from Episode 2, Confirmed Dead
The monster has been a mystery since LOST began. Recently, in an interview with Jorge Garcia on AOL Television, he mentions something about an upcoming episode involving the smoke monster: ... but something happens, that's coming up, that involves that thing, and it's just... it's pretty crazy.
Could he have been talking about last night's episode (The Shape of Things to Come)?
Episode 9 leaves us with many many things to think about and the nature of the monster is just one of them. Can we think of the Smoke Monster as a piece of a very complicated game? When Alex is captured, Ben plays a mind game with her captor. He refers to Alex as a pawn (bluffing - playing Poker now rather than Chess) The mind game fails and Ben appears to be in shock. He changed the rules? mutters Ben.
Rules? We saw what the Smoke Monster did to the crewman from the freighter. Was he a pawn? Is the Smoke Monster a rook? Controlling the center of the board is important in the game of Chess. When Ben confronts Widmore, we begin to understand that control of the island may be the object of the game in LOST. Allgames, the webmaster of lostisagame.com has a lot to say about the nature of LOST. Is LOST really a game? Certainly, there are a great many game references in the show.
Jeff Jensen is on the Island!
Sun, 13 Apr 2008 20:25:00 ESTJeff Jensen (aka Doc Jensen, theoretical LOSTologist) of Entertainment Weekly has been visiting the cast and crew of LOST on the island of Hawaii! Doc, of course, has provided us with some of the most interesting LOST theories imaginable. Now, in Hawaii, he is privy to all sorts of new information.
----- possible spoilers follow ----
Apparently, no one was watching, because not only did Doc Jensen enter Ben's house, but he went into Ben's secret room and put on his clothes!! Pretty creepy, eh? Ben! I'm wearing your clothes!! It's all in the video (upper right).
Here are some very interesting excerpts from the magazine:
Our first eight episodes, by design, were all set up for these episodes to come. That we're doing just five instead of eight means they're even more packed with plot. It's payoff time. - Matthew Fox
Mysterious things are happening to Claire that set up the next few episodes--and the next few years, too. - Carlton Cuse
I thought we would ease into things. Instead, I get this all-Ben extravaganza: combat, riding horses, foreign languages. And piano playing! All waaay outside my comfort zone. How can you work two weeks and feel like you need a vacation already? - Michael Emerson on the first episode after the writers' strike.
Big and epic - Matthew Fox on the upcoming episodes
Look for a raging gunbattle at Camp Locke, a murder victim (apparently) washing up on shore, a flash forward to Ben's war with billionaire Charles Widmore, Sayid's romance with Nadia and more.
Thanks go to EW.com for the info!!
How to Dress Like a LOST Celebrity
Mon, 07 Apr 2008 09:03:00 ESTThe internet ratings service known as Quantcast.com says that for every 79 males who visit LOST.COM, there are 119 female visitors. According to Quantcast: The site attracts a more youthful, more affluent, more female audience.
Holy Smokes! From what I had seen of LOST fandom, there were more females but this is the first time I've seen real statistical proof.
I was going write something about LOST, dynamite and how I love the smell of gunpowder and cordite in the morning, but I can't ignore these stats. We can still talk about gunpowder, exploding submarines and the proper handling of unstable dynamite, but we can't ignore Evangeline Lilly's clothing either. Right??
Dana has a website called Fashion Under 100 where she duplicates (roughly) the same outfits worn by celebrities for under $100.00 by finding the components online. Here is the entry for an outfit recently worn by Evangeline Lilly.
In a related story, Evie and Dom are still together. What? You thought they broke up? Well - you were wrong!!
Rediscovering the Hanso Foundation
Tue, 01 Apr 2008 09:40:00 ESTI'm convinced that the LOST Experience alternate reality game that played out between Seasons 2 and 3 has some important clues for LOST fans. LOSTLOVER, who has a blog here at LOST.com, recently posted that she thinks Ben may be connected to the Hanso Foundation. Her evidence is found at the Hanso Foundation website (yes - you thought it was down with only the letter from Alvar Hanso!) under Executive Bios. Peter Thompson's bio says that he was miraculously cured of cancer at the Alvar Hanso Cancer Center in Geneva. Of course, we now know that Ben told Juliet that he arranged for her sister to be cured of cancer. Now, that's something to think about: a connection between Ben and the Hanso Foundation! Read more here!
For anyone who doubts that the clues in The LOST Experience will someday mean something to us, remember the scene in a recent episode, The Constant, where we see Charles Widmore purchase the log of The Black Rock at auction. The seller was Tovard Hanso!
LOST Mind Games
Sat, 29 Mar 2008 04:21:00 ESTRecently, I received a book called LOST Mind Games courtesy of Anne Dawson Books. Appropriately, it arrived shortly after the airing of episode 7 (Ji Yeon) - a classic LOST mind game of a show. You might think that it's a book about the way that writers Damon, Carlton and team like to mess with our minds - but no! It's a book of mind boggling puzzles related to LOST! I've always enjoyed puzzles. One of my more interesting classes in college had a textbook filled with nothing but problems to be solved. Many LOST fans may have a tendency to be drawn to puzzles. There are a huge number of LOST related message boards with fans puzzling over every aspect of LOST. The puzzles in LOST Mind Games really do require a knowledge of LOST. Many of the puzzles are labeled Average Fan, Expert Fan or Diehard Fan and require a knowledge of quotes (like funny things that Desmond said to Locke in the hatch) , episode titles and other odd LOST related facts. I was once at a party of real diehard LOST fans and when I stepped out of the elevator onto the mezzanine floor (where the party was located) I said to a fellow LOST fan: “I go up the elevator; I go down the elevator.” To the non-LOST fan, this means nothing; but to the diehard fan, it's pretty funny. This book belongs in the library of every obsessed LOST fan. Don't forget to take it on your next long trip and if your name is Seth Norris, you should remember to engage the autopilot before puzzling over LOST Mind Games. JACK: ...Do you ever think that maybe they put you down here to push a button every 100 minutes just to see if you would? That all of this -- the computer, the button -- it's just a mind game ... an experiment? DESMOND: Every single day.... [...]
Jimmy Kimmel Watches an Enhanced LOST Episode
Fri, 28 Mar 2008 10:17:00 ESTI'm sure everyone has noticed the new 'enhanced' LOST episodes that have been airing before the new LOST episodes. They are the ones with the little pop-ups that explain things to the more casual LOST viewer. I even received an email from a serious LOST fan who said to me - What are you doing with these pop ups!! as if I were somehow responsible for the decision to provide hints during the 2nd airing of the show.
Jimmy Kimmel, however, really enjoys his enhanced LOST episodes. Just take a look at this one! It's very funny and somehow I think Kimmel may have actually seen a different show
Why Jin is Dead
Thu, 20 Mar 2008 04:36:00 ESTI was certain that Jin was alive, but then I was listening to a TiVo recording of the 9/29/06 Jimmy Kimmel Live show. Evangeline Lilly was his guest and he said something that stopped me in my tracks. You get a DUI and then you get a bullet on that show!
Holy Smokes - Daniel Dae Kim had a DUI!!!
The LOST DUI Chronology
Therefore, Jin is dead!
Why Jin is Alive
Wed, 19 Mar 2008 23:45:00 ESTThe flashforward of Jin's tombstone leads us to believe that he will soon suffer an untimely demise. The date on the tombstone is the same as the crash date and this is consistent with the Oceanic 6 deception that only 8 people initially survived the crash. Now, we have to wonder if Jin actually died or was left behind on the island. What did Matthew Abaddon mean when he asked Hurley the question: Are they still alive?
If only we could read the minds of the writers? We know so much of the story. How will the flashbacks, the present and the flashforwards all weave together? We know, of course, that they will leave the island. When an agonized Jack said to Kate: We have to go back, Kate!, we knew that they would someday go back. What will motivate the survivors to return?
Sayid is working for Ben and Ben always said that leaving the island would be a mistake. Hurley is haunted by Charlie and Charlie tries to tell him that they need him. They need you! Charlie tells Hurley! Jack is obviously haunted in the Season 3 finale. What must Jack be thinking? By now (the S3 finale flashforward), he must know that Claire is his half-sister. Is she still alive on the island? Is Jack haunted by visions of his sister? Will Kate also be haunted by visions of Claire? Certainly, little Aaron will be a constant reminder. The Oceanic 6 will return to the island and each member will have a motivation to return. What will motivate Sun? Unless Jin is still alive on the island, she will have little motivation to return. Therefore, Jin is alive!
Charlie on the Tonight Show!
Wed, 12 Mar 2008 07:11:00 ESTDominic Monaghan was on the Tonight Show this week where he talked about working with Hugh Jackman on the X-Men prequel, hunting giant spiders, his art exhibition in LA, picking up other people's accents as a kid, and growing up watching the Muppets, Sesame Street and the A-Team. The A-Team was a very important part of Dominic's life. Not only does Dominic love it when a plan comes together, but he has completely memorized the A-Team song that aired at the beginning of each episode! Be sure to watch the videos if only to catch the part where he recites the A-Team intro word for word.
In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no-one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team.
Yunjin at the Spa
Tue, 11 Mar 2008 08:21:00 ESTThere's a good video interview with Yunjin Kim on USATODAY's latest CelebWatch. She talks a little bit about the upcoming episode 7 and tells us that we will meet the last of the Oceanic 6 in that episode. She also thinks that some of the survivors will stay on the island and this will be the reason for Jack's need to return to the island.
Will Sun be one of the Oceanic 6? Remember what Jorge Garcia said about episode 7. It's going to be shocking!
Jorge Garcia in Geek Monthly
Sun, 09 Mar 2008 03:28:00 ESTGeek Monthly has some interesting tidbits about Jorge Garcia. When he was in high school, he scored very high on the math portion of the SAT and was later named Triton of the Year. According to Wikipedia, the Triton of the Year is selected by the faculty and is the highest award given to a graduating senior.
Garcia admits to enjoying puzzles involving math and logic, which is great considering that he stars in a TV show that is arguably the biggest puzzler in television history.
Garcia also has a special affinity for the number 8, which makes me wonder if he had anything to do with Ben's rabbit having the number 8 painted on it.
Ben to Locke: Rabbit today? This didn't have a number on it, did it?
Yunjin Kim on the Late Late Show 3/5/08
Thu, 06 Mar 2008 09:17:00 ESTYunjin Kim has been doing the talk show circuit lately and last night she was on the Late Late Show. Craig Ferguson is always great and I'm beginning to think that Yunjin is a bit of a kidder: teasing the nervous, yet delicious Craig Ferguson (see video).
Oh... it's wet. Did you spit on the floor?
I hope that Sun is one of the Oceanic Six because that would be a really funny line for Sun.
LOST Fan Mark Kaye Interviews Michael Emerson
Wed, 05 Mar 2008 00:41:00 ESTMark Kaye is a LOST fan who is also the host of a radio show in Jacksonville, Florida. You might think that Tallahassee would be the really cool place for LOST fans until you find out that Michael Emerson actually lived and worked in Jacksonville! Mark had the good fortune to interview Michael Emerson on the air and even sent us a link to the YouTube video (see video on right). It's a very good interview as it is both revealing and funny.
Here's something else to think about. Kaye has a funny tag line in his email that says 'Ben Linus 2008.' Hmmm... but is it REALLY so funny?? Think about it.... Ben Linus as President. Here are a few points to consider for the campaign:
(1) From Season 3, Episode 20, we know not only that Ben Linus is a natural born US citizen but he was even born in the woods!! You can't get more natural than that!
(2) The War on Terror would end at some point during the Ben Linus Presidential Inauguration as terrorists would run for the hills and promptly blow themselves up.
(3) From the episode: Every Man for Himself, we know that he can beat up Sawyer. With Ben Linus as President, no one would mess with us!
(4) The Secret Service would protect him from the freighter boat people!
Not Frank's First Island?
Mon, 25 Feb 2008 09:19:00 ESTWatch Kristin interview Jeff Fahey and see what he says when she says that Fahey's character seems more laid back than others from the freighter crew.
It might not be his first island.
I know someone said that the island on LOST is really just part of a string of mysterious islands existing just below the visible horizon of a really really mysterious continent!
Matthew Fox: It's Not a Dinosaur!
Wed, 20 Feb 2008 22:59:00 ESTMatthew Fox was on Regis and Kelly yesterday (2/19). He talked about his work in movies including Vantage Point and says that they plan on making 5 or 6 more LOST episodes this season in addition to the 8 produced before the writers' strike. He says that he enjoyed being with his kids during the strike. The Vantage Point promotion has been quite intense with Matthew Fox recently visiting 9 countries.
Matthew Fox (talking to Regis re: the dinosaur): I don't know... They do... It's not a dinosaur! Where did you see this outline of a dinosaur? :)
White Rabbit: Trippy Star Trek Video
Wed, 20 Feb 2008 17:33:00 ESTThe new Star Trek movie has some real LOST connections with J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk and Damon Lindelof working on the project. How will it differ from the original Trek?
Surely, it will look nothing like this trippy video. Right?
Matthew Fox on Good Morning America
Tue, 19 Feb 2008 02:37:00 ESTMatthew Fox was on Good Morning America this Monday, February 18. He talks about the new movie Vantage Point where he plays a Secret Service agent named 'Kent Taylor.' He also says that 5 additional LOST episodes will be produced post-strike and that they will be back to work on LOST in about 3 weeks.
Rebecca Mader on the Beach
Tue, 19 Feb 2008 01:42:00 ESTThere are some very good new actors on LOST today, but only one of them is a redhead. Watch the USA Today interview with Rebecca Mader on the beach during a thunderstorm. It's a great interview. She's obviously a real redhead. You can't fake that sort of thing.
Recent Appearances: Lilly and Mader
Sun, 17 Feb 2008 02:50:00 ESTEvangeline Lilly was on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on Valentines' Day. She was great and it was a funny show with Craig Ferguson continually asking her to marry him.
There is another good video clip on redlasso with Rebecca Mader (Charlotte) on the Jimmy Kimmel Show. She's another great addition to the LOST cast. Here are a few Rebecca Mader facts:
(1) She's a redhead
(2) She has a British accent
(3) She became a LOST fan (a Locke fan) before landing the part
(4) She smells good (according to Kimmel)
All of this would seem to place her ahead of Evangeline Lilly, but then we have to consider that Evie speaks French - so after assigning points for a great number of things (straight teeth, funny laugh, smells good, etc.), I've decided that it's a virtual tie!! In any case, LOST is blessed with a great deal of talent.
See links below:
Lilly on Late Late part 1

Mader on Kimmel
Video:Evie on Letterman... Island Fever
Wed, 13 Feb 2008 18:00:00 ESTEvangeline Lilly was on Letterman yesterday (2/12/2008). The writers' strike was mentioned and there was some talk about her new travels worldwide! See the video to your right. Here are a few memorable quotes:
Island Fever is not a joke.
We need a visitor's visa for China
... so we went to Japan instead
Let me see if I can pull something out of my... out of my hat!
... we ended up in Golden Guy
Eisner Says Strike Over!
Fri, 08 Feb 2008 09:52:00 ESTFrom the TV Guide Editors' Blog:
During a Thursday afternoon visit to CNBC's Fast Money, former Disney CEO Michael Eisner boldly declared the three-month-old WGA strike "over." Pressed to elaborate, he said, "They've made a deal, they shook hands on a deal [and it] is going on Saturday to the constituents [for a vote].
Ryan Ozawa recently said:
Even with a signed deal, it’s been said, it could take some time to get production back up to full speed. It would depend on the availability of the cast and crew, as well as adjustments that may have to be made to the storyline.
He goes on to say that maybe we'll get a few more episodes this season. Things could be looking up!

Hurley Takes Charge - A Sneak Peek!
Thu, 31 Jan 2008 19:39:00 ESTElizabeth Mitchell was on The View where an interesting clip of tonight's Season 4 premiere was shown. Hurley has apparently gained confidence and doesn't hesitate to take charge of the situation.
Watch Jimmy Kimmel for a Sneak Peek
Wed, 30 Jan 2008 21:24:00 ESTThe word is out that there will be a sneak peek of the upcoming LOST episode tonight (Midnight, night of Wednesday Jan 30, 2008) on the Jimmy Kimmel Show.
A few things about Jimmy Kimmel:
Jimmy is a huge fan of Lost. You may remember the time he visited the set: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMRWQ2_b17I
Packed with hilarious comedy bits and a fantastic house band, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” features a diverse lineup of guests that includes celebrities, athletes, musicians, comedians and humorous human interest subjects. Each night, Jimmy strives to do what no other late-night talk show can do - deliver up-to-the minute news on the latest topics… though sometimes enhanced for the sake of comedy.
Jimmy Kimmel and Jill Leiderman serve as executive producers of “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Jason Schrift and Douglas DeLuca serve as co-executive producers. “Jimmy Kimmel Live” is shot live in front of a studio audience and produced by Jackhole Industries in association with ABC Studios.
Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs at 12:05 am ET/PT on ABC.
Michael Emerson in 'jumping off bridges'
Wed, 09 Jan 2008 06:49:00 ESTI just received an email from film producer and LOST fan, Stacy Schoolfield. She produced a film called jumping off bridges and Michael Emerson is featured in the movie! The movie is now available on DVD.
This is actually the first time that I have been aware of the movie. Watching the trailer is moving. It appears to be a story of friendship and loss and according to FilmMaker Magazine, the film has been embraced by people who have suffered loss, counselors, therapists, people who work in the fields of suicide prevention, mental health and awareness, professors of psychology and social workers.
ABC Has All 3 Seasons Of LOST Available Free Online in HD
Mon, 07 Jan 2008 17:49:00 ESTLast night at my office I wanted to show someone a scene from LOST via the ABC web site and I was shocked to discover that all 3 seasons of LOST were available in streaming HD. I clicked Exodus Part 2 and saw the scene where Locke was being dragged into a hole by the smokemonster and Jack was telling Kate to get the dynamite!
Incredible! For someone who hasn't seen LOST, this is a great opportunity. You have until January 31 at 9PM to watch everything! Then again, you can always watch the 8 minute 15 second synopsis.
There is also a very good LOSTCasts podcast out this week. They talk about the season finale and there is also some new information from some of the actors regarding the nature of Season 4. (image)
Yunjin Kim is AskMen.com's Actress of the Week
Sat, 05 Jan 2008 06:02:00 ESTAskMen.com is promoted as a Men's Portal and indeed it is! Among recent articles pertaining to the ethics of circumcision, jumping really high, meeting women in grocery stores, and drunk squirrels is something of interest to LOST fans as well: Yunjin Kim is AskMen.com's actress of the week.
Yunjin was rated using a number of criteria and she scored exceptionally high in the areas of natural beauty and personal style.
Michael Emerson on Red Eye!
Thu, 03 Jan 2008 23:19:00 ESTMichael Emerson will on tonight's (Sat, Dec 22, 2007) Red Eye at 10PM! Here's is the actual text from the Red Eye website:
Sat., 10 p.m.: Medium Lisa Williams, comedian Sherrod Small and 'Lost' star Michael Emerson
Emerson, a real fan favorite, always has interesting things to say and this show also has a psychic on tonight. This has got to be interesting. Red Eye is seen on the Fox News Channel.
Damon and Carlton Meet a Fan
Thu, 20 Dec 2007 02:44:00 ESTHow does a major LOST fan meet the writers of the show? If you're like Nicole, you might be watching the strike coverage news, see Carlton Cuse being interviewed and say "OMG! I have to go down there and see them!
AND SHE DID!
She approached Damon and Carlton, told them she was a huge fan of the show and they asked her the question that you ask any LOST fan: Who is your favorite LOST character?
Ben! she replied immediately.
Nicole is also an administrator on the Michael Emerson fanboard at www.michaelemerson.proboards21.com.
Evangeline Lilly Makes The Onion
Sun, 09 Dec 2007 00:34:00 ESTYesterday, I was watching 'The Onion News Network' on TiVo and noticed that Evangeline Lilly was the headline feature! What a great Onion broadcast! They even pronounced her name correctly!
The award for 'Best Fight Scene in a Wet T-Shirt or Short-Shorts' at the 5th Annual Strong Women in Television Awards Ceremony is certainly nothing to sneeze at. Here's some of the dialogue:
That's a woman who can be tough and independent while wearing a wet T-shirt
but she's all muddy and there's no make-up. I couldn't do it. There are entire scenes in that show where she barely draws attention to the fact that she's an incredibly attractive woman.
Yes... she is an incredible specimen.
Editor's note: The Onion News Network is a parody and it is not to be taken seriously.
Editor's note #2: CNN is also a parody.
Will the Strike End Before Christmas?
Wed, 28 Nov 2007 08:56:00 ESTAccording to Nikki Finke's Deadline Hollywood Daily Blog, the writers' strike may be over sooner than many expected. Even though talks only resumed on Monday (Nov 26), the word is that Hollywood agents have already done a great deal of work getting a deal ready and the strike could be settled before Christmas. Hopefully the agreement will work well for both the writers and the studio moguls. The math is interesting.Pattern bargaining means that other unions will get similar deals. The extra cost for DVDs is significant, so a reasonable balance must be obtained in the deal. Not much has been said about the cost of video streaming and this is a part of what everyone refers to as 'new media.' It is a major issue in the strike negotiations. The WGA says that the studios are making tons of money from streaming video and the studios say that the videos are promotional. However, the bandwidth costs for high resolution video must be tremendous. In a recent article in MacNN, BitTorrent president Ashwin Navin says that the cost of streaming video over the net is more than 20 cents per hour per viewer and the advertising revenue per viewer may be less than the cost of streaming. There is hope for the situation, however. His new product, Bittorrent DNA, promises to reduce the cost of streaming by transferring some of the burden to the viewers' computers. Us[...]
The Net Revolves Around Evangeline Lilly
Sat, 24 Nov 2007 04:45:28 ESTMy brother recently gave me something called a Nabaztag (Armenian for bunny rabbit) for my birthday. It's a wi-fi connected bunny rabbit that reads news headlines, gives me the current time and even reads aloud the subject lines of my GMail messages. Since I have subscribed to Google Alerts related to everything LOST, the bunny is very very busy and most of the time it just says GOOGLE ALERT! Evangeline Lilly! Apparently, she is the most talked about LOST celebrity on the net, so we might as well talk about her here too. Naturally, there are tons of pictures of Evangeline Lilly on the net as well as frequent Evangeline Lilly sightings, and there was even a reference to a website that allows people to morph two faces into one. I received an alert when someone morphed photos of Evangeline Lilly and Jared Leto, so I tried morphing a photo of Evangeline with writer Damon Lindelof. Incredibly, it still looks exactly like Lindelof. There are some excellent Evangeline Lilly audio clips out there, so be sure to check them out. She's very revealing about herself, but remains careful not to reveal any real LOST secrets. I didn't even know she spoke French! [...]
Season 4, Episode 9 to be Written by Robots
Sun, 11 Nov 2007 04:11:26 ESTIn a stunning development, anonymous sources at Bad Robot Productions have revealed that LOST episodes will be written entirely by robots starting with episode 9 of the upcoming season.
Apparently, the plan has been in the works for quite some time since it was previously thought completely impossible that simple robots could carry on the complex business of writing, breaking down scenes in the editing room and even working with producers. Computers have long been able to play Grandmaster level chess so it is only natural that they would soon be writing screenplays for enormously popular television shows. Could this be the real reason for the name Bad Robot? Have they been planning for a writers' strike since the beginning?
LOST Webisodes Start on Monday!
Sun, 11 Nov 2007 04:07:19 ESTHere's some good news! EW.com has reported that new LOST material will be released on ABC's web site this Monday (11/12/2007).These are little micro-stories that fit into the larger LOST story. The writer's strike may push the season premiere back a bit (or even a lot), but at least we'll have a glimpse this Monday!
