tycho_anomaly: 1950s green plastic brontosaurus poking its head in from stage left (Gilligan Island Number Six Prisoner)


TiVo alert: The season's second episode of Lost airs tonight.

This week's big question: Who are the Oceanic Six?

My guesses behind the cut.
Note: My guesses are only mildly spoiler-ish,
but I can't guarantee that other comments won't be more specific.
Be sure you want to see what's in the Magic Box before you open the door.

And Ben will come again, he will not die again,
in flower and leaf, in wind and music far,
he will come back again.
-- Thomas Wolfe
What may be TeeVee's finest achievement in
long form narrative storytelling returns tonight.


I can't wait.

More LOST 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"...

Previously Lost:
Hanso, Lo!

Spoonful weighs a ton

Hanso, Lo!

For all you Lost boys:

In addition to the current teevee Season Two plot developments, Lost is also deploying some creepy new online mysteries. Instructions on how to access them are behind the cut.

Note: potential spoilers ahead, especially for those of you who are still catching up with the Season One DVD. (Yes, I'm looking at you, [livejournal.com profile] baal_bill. Do NOT open the hatch.)

Forcing it off with their hands
The trapdoor came undone
Above our heads it swung
The privilege had been won
Being drunk on their plan, they lifted up the sun
A spoonful weighs a ton.


Or maybe the answers are here... )
