online madness. As faithful readers know, there's a LOST
-related webpage -- the provocatively titled bigspaceship1
-- featuring frequently changing images and sound files that may or may not be related to the various plot developments and mysteries on the actual teevee show. Today it featured the above animated gif. But drat! -- clicking on the embedded link to heavens-above.com
only yields an error message. As usual, however, there's more than meets the eye...
Here's where it gets fun:
- At the bigspaceship1 page do a "view image" on the picture (on a Mac, just click and hold on the picture, then select "view image")
- In the resulting URL, change "8.gif" to "9.gif" (or any number higher than 8).
- Marvel at the retro futuristic song stylings of the previously unknown (to me) Lucia Pamela ("the missing link between Sun Ra and the Shaggs"). Now I must own her album!!
Oh, and the morse code at the top of the image page? It seems to decode as "WARSTAS"...
