Can anyone make out what the sign says? Cuse and Lindelof said to look at the signage on the building.....

Obsidianrock said...

someone said they thought the second word was "construction" and maybe the first word was "DeGroot" but I think those are just a guess. I might have something to do with the construction company Michael worked for.

Scott and Steve said...

I haven't seen a legible shot of it yet.

damon posted this over at the fuselage: "And if you think Locke is dark, wait'll you see
Charlie in a couple of weeks. Hell hath no
fury than an addict scorned..."

i thought locke was a fucking badass this week...whats up with that?

Ralph- said...

even though locke has had his ups and downs, i have never seen him that intense. even when he was yelling at the teenie bopper kid in the group therapy. i was scared of locke. and notjust scared for the characters on the show, but i thought Terry O'Quinn was gonna jump out of the tv and come after me next. damn that was intense. why did he feel the need to beat up charlie? he stands by while shannon has a gun to his head, he stood by while That beardo shot at Sawyer, he stood by and let a monster drag him into a hole, and NOW he goes and punches defensless charlie, after Claire,s annoying baby was safe. WTF? he was already slapped by clair. he is obviously doing what He BELIVES is right, and LOCKE just desides, out of the F*cking Blue (r.i.p. chris penn)to knock charlie sensless? LOCKE knocked off my list. Sorry dude, you screwed up!

Jimmy said...

Funny, as Charlies behaviour played into my theory that everyone is in fact going mad...

But I thought the way they portrayed Locke, especially with the swirling camera angle when he was looking at Charlie come undone. Well, I thought that the writers are trying to hint more and more that Locke is part of this whole conspiracy. Like, he's started to take charge of certain situations. Also seems to be conflicted as he genuinely seems attracted to Claire. I bet the buggers up to something!

Lets not forget that a very important line was issued in the last episode of Season 1. Something like Jack saying to Kate "Listen, if we get in this hatch, and we find out what's in there, and we survive this...we are still going to have a Locke problem". That must have been said for a reason, me thinks!
Cheers,JP

Yeah it definitely looked as though Locke might be up to something... and that baptizing the baby might get in the way of his plans.
How long until the next new episode? I'm guessing it's not next week because the end just said "coming up on Lost" where normally it will say "next week on Lost" or something like that.

Obsidianrock said...

February 8th is the next new epidode called "The Long Con", it's a Sawyer-centric episode. Next week they're showing "Numbers" from last season, probably 'cause it has a connection with the next episode.

Alyx said...

Looks like Charlie needs to take a few classes from Chuck Norris...

Ralph- said...

chuck norris doesn't teach...he owns!

When`s Elvis back?

Jellymanianos said...

Ok, i'm actually going to reveal my theory on the easter egg in Fire and Water - the Pink Floyd reference is obvious now, but did you know that when the album cover for Animals was made, the giant inflatable pig broke free from the chimney it was tethered to and floated directly through a few major flight paths near Heathrow airport? Yeah, it could be a tenuous link, but think about it - maybe one of the boars on the island had too much roughage, ballooned up with gas and floated directly through flight 815's path?!
What have you got to say about that? (P.S. you might well hear this same theory on Generally Speaking this week - it was me that pointed it out then as well.)

Give us us freeee! erm.. us podcast! :)
I want to here yall blabbering.
Locke is going bezerk! Doesnt seem to sympathic to me anymore. I'd like to learn his backstory in the near future.
What?? no lost next week?
AAAaaaaaaah!

humpscottandsteveinhatchikoon said...

The floating pig theory is excellent... but where was Vincent when the plane went down? How did the dog survive the crash? I'm telling you, everyone is overlooking the fact that there is a magic dog on the island that can turn into polar bears and *spoiler alert* speak Korean. He also played goalie for a soccer team and point guard in basketball.
Also I agree with that other guy-
give us us podcast!

Ralph- said...

they will give it to us when they are ready to give it to us. just because they make a podcast, does not mean you earned it. just hold tight. this is a free service that they provide for us, for fun. they have lives, and they take time out of thier busy schedule to do this service everyweek. be very calm. relax....breath

Chuck Norris Billy Jack's bitch said...

I can't stand Locke anymore. He is always yelling about "Who are you to tell me what I can and can't do!"

Then he turns his back on Charlie, ignores his dreams/warning & destiny, punches him 3x in the face. Allies himself with Claire & references Aaron as "our boy" to her. Now everone hates Charlie even though he saved Jack's life. Locke only assisted in the murder of Boone, lied about the hatch & tried to diddle Walt. He's scum, just like his old man.

Ralph- said...

i hope that scott and steve are okay. i hope they didnt get in a car accident or get hurt on the way to recording the podcast.

if you guys are alive, give us a sign.

you just need more time to talk over your different feelings about the monster, before going on the air tonight,you should kiss and make up.

Ralph- said...

dylan?
craig?

i cant believe it is friday night, and i am sitting on a stupid computer with nothing to do.

BORED.

watched that Ultraviolet trailer. Gonna go see that one.
that guy who did equilibrium made it. looks like fun.

Katie said...

They've already said that they're recording on Friday night and they need time to edit...so RELAX until tomorrow people!

Jellymanianos said...

Thanks humpscottandsteveinhatchikoon for the back up on my theory, but i really must insist, it's football, not soccer. We English invented the game, surely your version, American Football, or Gridiron (which, incidentally is a dumb ass, overlong, stop every 3 minutes for a tv ad, excuse of a game) should be called soccer? There aren't such things as American Rugby, or American Tennis is there? No. Reason being is that we thought of the names first, you stole the 'football' bit and made up a completely different word! The Spanish called it Futbol, the Germans call it Fussball and the Dutch call it Voetbal. More importantly, the Brazilians call it Futebol, and they've won the World Cup more than anyone else. You don't see them calling it soccer, and they speak completely different languages!
I have to say, i like the americans, they're nice people, i joined in the discussion at generally speaking this week and had a top time, but whoever thought of soccer...wankers.

humpvincentinthetailsection said...

Geeez, I didn't rename the game "soccer" and you didn't make up the game "football." Some old ass douschebags did those things and time went on and football stayed football in your country (along with every other country) and it came here and was named soccer. I wouldn't mind calling [american] football "soccer," I could do it, but that doesn't happen. For some reason this is a touchy subject for the English people I talk to... it's like if you mention football and you're refering to american football they say "Oh you mean that dumb ass, overlong, stop every 3 minutes for a tv ad, excuse of a game?" and well Yeah that's what I mean.
So, Jellymania, who do you think will win the Super Bowl?

humplockefallingdownandupstairs said...

Also, Jellymanianos, over here in my land (home of the free) there is this commercial for Geico (car insurance) and the whole premise is this gecko talking to other lizards about spreading the word of paying less for car insurance. Here's where you come in, the gecko's voice has an english accent and it I guess it is more humorous for us Americans to see a gecko speaking with an accent than without one. Anyway, I'm wondering if there is anything like that in England where people impersonate American accents and it is really humorous to you. Like do you go up to your freinds and say in an accent "hey there, cowboy" and just laugh your asses off? Anyway, it's funny... how different yet, so similar, we all are.

Jellymanianos said...

Honestly, Humpvince? I couldn't give a fuck who wins the Super Bowl, as long as some ageing pop mistress doesn't get one of her baps out. Can you imagine if it were Cher and Pharell up there (unlikely, i know) and he gets a bit carried away and has a grope? Oh, the inhumanity of it all.
I was going to guess Washington Redskins to win the Super Bowl, but a little research shows that the team i followed as a kid (20 years ago) a pretty much pantaloons at the moment, so i'm gonna go for the Steelers.
Oh, and you should check Wikipedia for the origins of Football, it reveals much.
Finally, please could everybody lay off the very nice guy that is Cliff Ravenscraft? He's ok man, just live and let live (not necessarily directed at you humpvince, just the other bunch of tree hugging hippies dotted around this blog)
Out.

Jellymanianos said...

One more thing - in reference to your comment about us using American accents for humour? It's pretty much restricted to taking the piss out of how you pronounce our counties' names, for example, if you say Worcestershire, you would say: war-sest-er-shire, when in fact it's pronounced wooster-shu. Lord of the Rings land it most certainly ain't. Also, we have some really good impressionists that can do George Dubya pretty well. He really is a stupid SOB, how the fuck you mentalists who voted him didn't see him coming from 8 miles away, i will never know! Still the jokes on us all when Iran gets pissed at him enough!
Peace, out.

Katie said...

We do it too:

A name of of town/county of Massachusetts is Worcester. It's pronouced Wooster.

Anyone who says Wor-chest-ter is an asshole. Period.

Jellymanianos said...

thanks katie, i appreciate the back up there.

Side note - aren't people from Massachusetts coloquially known as 'massholes'? Not a slant at you, but it's pretty funny. I know the residents of Hamburg affectionately refer to themselves as Hamburgers.

Katie said...

I'm not from Mass, so there's no offense taken. I mention the masshole thing in my call in comments, so, yes. Here's the icing on the cake: What are people from Maine called?

Maine-iacs

Jellymanianos said...

Genius! Do you know what we English call the Scottish and Welsh?

Twats.

sawyrzballs said...

Dorkchester

Katie said...

lol dorkchester

more like traffic-jam-chester

Jellymanianos said...

You wanna know the name of a town with the worst swear word in the world? Scunthorpe.
