Does Ralph care? Fighting words!

Good to see the moving images...good theory too. Here's mine.

rubycalaber said...

aweosme dog, he was all "OH SNAP" n shit

Jimmy said...

Was thinking in depth about how Carlton and Damon said that soon into the new "pod", we will find that some things we have "seen", aren't what they seem at all!

Well...Desmonds powers! What if Hurley was looking at him not in spooky amazement, but with suspicion. What if Desmond mentioning that Locke would rescue everyone as mentioned in his speech was not psychic powers, but in fact Des fucking up and mentioning it "before" the speech. Desmonds saying "Oh yeah....I'm still messed up", is his cover for saying "Oh shit...he hasn't made the speech yet?".

In other words, Locke is in on it..so is Desmond.

Locke led everyone to the hatch. He made everyone push the button, he may have led everyone to the clearing to meet Tom etc (when Kate got captured). A few of us have always wondered if Locke actually is in on some whole grand scheme.

Ralph...do you care?

Good to see you, Craigster!

Scott and Steve said...

I like your theory, Jimmy. That's very "Damon" of you. I can totally see that happening.

-Craig

Jimmy said...

Thanks, man. If you look at that end sequence of "Further instructions" again, with my theory in mind, it changes it all.

All that said, I went on air early in the year stating that the disease had made everyone mad! So who knows?

aimee in little rock said...

That's some awesome shit Craig, you guys should always do video podcasts. But I have to say, Wrigley J. stole the show.

Oh, and I think I might have to debunk the Pepsi Guy's theory. Hurley wasn't the only one who saw Desmond. In the opening scene when Locke is lying on the ground, he hears and sees Desmond running through the jungle, and tries to call out to him, but he's mute.

Kablamo, dude. Sorry.

Scott and Steve said...

But, we don't know if he saw him for sure. He definitely heard something, but it could've been Hurley-the-polar bear.

aimee in little rock said...

Then why would they have shown screen shots of Desmond running through the grass in between shots of Locke looking up and trying to shout out to it? That doesn't make much sense. Even so, he heard whatever noise Desmond was making.

Don't try to rebunk my debunk!

Scott and Steve said...

Locke was infected with Helvetica at the time, missy!

Plus, he's a part of Dharma anyhow, try to disprove that Mrs. Smarty Pants.

aimee in little rock said...

Being a part of a hippie commune does not constitute affiliation with the Dharma Initiative. It just means you're a pothead.

Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, son!

mrlerone said...

What's Helvetica got to do with anything? I don't get the joke about typography...

My theory is that Desmond is starting to get 'the sickness' after not taking his DHARMA drugs for a while now. And that all the apparitions and coincidences on the island and in flashbacks can be put down to the fact they're becoming more and more psychic, the powers that the island bestowes on people. Eventually it drives people mental, and that's why Rousseau killed all her family and why some of the (i don't like this expression) "losties" are acting a bit crazy these days.

Oh, another thing I read somewhere. At the Others camp they are trying to get Jack to once again act his 'real-life' role as Doctor. Similarly, Sawyer and Kate belong on jail in 'real world', and it's that reaosn why they're currently doing time in Otherville.

What does anyone reckon? Surely it's better than my Seinfeld theory?

aimee in little rock said...

I think you're infected with a little Helvetica.

Scott and Steve said...

Hey, that's a great connection about Kate and Sawyer spending time in jail. I didn't think of that.

aimee in little rock said...

I know Ralph really hated this latest episode's flashback, but it got me thinking about Locke. He's had the most diverse flashbacks of all characters; everytime we see him in a flashback story, he's living another life, doing something else with someone else.

He's been a toy store employee orphan, a box company man living alone, a home inspector living with Helen, and a pot-growing gun smuggler living in a hippie commune...what HASN'T he done?

I don't think anyone else has done quite so much with their flashbacks, so Ralph, you really shouldn't scoff at this man's life!

Ralph- said...

i heard that theory from an FBI agent, and to be honest with you, i debunkt that shit when i said that Lockee saw the shit out of Desmond while he was laying in the Bamboo...KABLAMI!

Gillian said...

Very interesting theory. Actually, very plausible in my book of miss-spelled words.

However, there's a bit of a flaw-Locke saw Desmond in the beginning of "Further Instructions", but couldn't say anything because of his voice. Does this mean that Locke can see dead people too?

Oh, wait-he saw Boone again! And sure, maybe that was a drug-induced really mega hot (with extra 't's) Boone, but still, he was dead.

A bit farfetched if it's going to apply to both Hurley and Locke, but still a really good theory.

Although, it's a bit farfetched to see dead people in the first place, regardless of whether or not that person has a mental problem history.

Ok, maybe not so farfetched.

Oh crap, I have no idea what I'm really saying anymore.

aimee in little rock said...

Sorry Craig, that's three debunkers now! But tell Pepsi Guy to keep them coming, that was a good one.

Scott and Steve said...

Yeah, but Locke also speaks to islands...how 'bout that!!

Ralph- said...

Hey man, i would like it to happen. Ask the pepsi guy if he would want to get flown out to OC and record a show with me. that would be sweet.

it is odd to see craig moving around and such. i swear that ever picture i have seen of him, he has the same smile on his face. i thought that maybe that was just his photo face, but i see it is his all the time face.

i really wish i had that equiptment ot edit some good counter podcast video, but i dont. it would have been sweet. oh well. you win this time sanger.

sayten said...

craig's mug alone can knock you on your sas. er, ass.

Jellymanianos said...

Wrigley has the greatest eyebrow move at the end of that vid!

As it's the time of theory, here we go: one of the other podcasts, Lostcasts, had a big thing going on about the Philedelphia Experiment, and what that had to do with time/ space continuum and the link with electromagnetic energy etc. My theory is that brother Desmond teleported through a wormhole created by the giant discharge from the magnet at the end of season 2, he popped through, saw a load of mental shit then popped back, minus clothes. The interesting thing is that during the Philadelphia Experiment, the crew of the Philadelphia went nuts, and many had serious physcological problems - could this be the 'sickness' - too much contact with the magnet?
And finally, on the sickness, wasn't there a bit in the final Sri Lanka video from the Lost Experience game where Mittelwerk is saying the sickness is a conspirancy model, and that any new recruits had to keep up the pretence? Maybe someone can back me up/ blow that out of the water?

Tiny little boom of a kablamo, but the only little thing.

P.S. You guys should really, really try and get hold of Extras, just finished over here, and it's fucking brilliant. It doesn't spoil anything by me saying Robert De Niro is in the last one!

Datty Mike said...

If Hurley is imagining Desmond, then he's imagining that he's predicting the future. Which I think would mean that Hurley is predicting the future through the medium of an imaginary friend.
hmmm.

Even for lost, that story line would be too weird.

aimee in little rock said...

I would agree that Craig is very photogenic, but I'm a little concerned that Ralph has a man-crush on him now.

Scott and Steve said...

Good job on the video, brother. I especially like the decision that you would play Wrigley, and Wrigley would play you. How did you get him to lip synch like that? That's amazing.


One theory I was reading was that there is an excess of Helium on the island. This of course causes the image of calcium to move to the left exponentially, causing many of the survivors to believe that they have Helvetica. Desmond injects himself with Intelligent Calcium (atomic weight 42) to counteract this, allowing him to know the future. Aaron also receives these injections which allows Charlie to play quite fast in the key of S. Ultimately the Dharma initiative would like to have enough pigs to manufacture iron forks that appear in the sky, but briefly.

Little Mouse

aimee in little rock said...

I don't really see the point in watching the show anymore, now that Dylan's ruined it for us all.

Obsidianrock said...

Wow, there's some really good theory's in here. I especially like Jimmy's theory (Sorry Craig) and I went back and watched the end of the last episode and it kinda makes sense.

I would try and give my cool theory to what's going on but mine would be so lame compared to the Pepsi guy's that I shouldn't even bother

P.S. I highly recommend Extras, I think it's better than The Office. Available for illegal download at a torrent site near you

Ralph- said...

We all know that desmond survived the implosion of the swan station, What this theory presupposes is... maybe he didn't?

i know exactly what "Little Mouse" is talking about, it is pretty obvious that this is what is actually going on. If you dont believe me, all you have to do is look around you.

If the pepsi guy's theory is correct, if Hurley is the only one to see desmond, how long will the producers be able to go all sixth sense on us before we realize that Hurley is the only one interacting with Desmond? There is going to come a point, where soneone will have to acknowlege him other than Hurley, otherwise people are going to believe in Pepsi Guy (pronounced Gee in Canada).

Or are the producers going to make is so desmond only has scenes with Hurley only to lure the believers of the Pepsi Guy's Theory into a false sense of security until, BAM, we find out that it is something totally different?

One thing is for sure, Both desmond and Hurley were haunted by the Numbers.

Ralph- said...

By the way, what is in Craig's hand?

Scott and Steve said...

It's a universal remote that controls the universe. I bought it at Bed, Bath & Beyond.

aimee in little rock said...

Does it control Wrigley J? Because it should. No really, it should.

Ralph- said...

stevi said that wrigley j. fields is the cutest dog ever. EVER. way to go craig, now we have to get a dog.

aimee in little rock said...

Wrigley J has got personality, I'll give him that.

K from the T-dot said...

OMG, can you do this every week?

Ralph- said...

Hey Aimee, do you want a remote control to turn him off? cause it sounds like you dont need one to turn him on.

Kimberley is right!
craig, if for some reason you skip on a weekly podcast than you should chime in with a video clip like this. or maybe even ryan a. would do one.

i would like to see a video from Japanese Pete and Pepsi Guy in the future.

Ralph- said...


CLIK HERE
if you are interested in dropping some hamiltons on some LOST merch.


By the way, Kelly from the Office, describing "Lazy Sunday" in line for Pretzels, was fucking hilarious!!! Kelly grates on my nerves, but that is the point, but she does it too well. i like it, but its annoying at the same time. its perfect.

aimee in little rock said...

I wasn't the only victim that night. Let's not forget the innocent pillow that was involved in Wrigley's romantic proceedings.

Scott and Steve said...

The Pepsi Guy is not capable of time travel at this stage in his life, so you'll have to settle for "present-day" Pepsi Guy.

Mike Campbell said...

Tim - I have watched all the Extras and they were amazing. If anyone wants to see them i could put them on a cd for you. I figure its not illigal because i have HBO and eventally they will be on HBO and i will watch them again.

Didn't Dumb and Dumber say on a Podcast dead people were not coming back and wouldn't be invovled?

Ralph- said...

But boone is back and involved. they say once you are dead, you stay dead. you can be a ghost and be dead. so maybe boone and desmond are ghosts?

By the way, the Future Pepsi Guy comment had to be Dylan's smart ass, cause he is messing around with literal. unless craig wants us to believe that dylan wrote that.

Hollerin' Holly said...

Craig-
Great job on the video!
One question, is that a graphic 'T' under the polo?

Scott and Steve said...

Just an undershirt!

aimee in little rock said...

I want to see Craig & Ryan in the next video podcast dressed as Damon & Carlton - with graphic tees.

Hollerin' Holly said...

Glad to hear that you are keepin' it real Craig, but I second Aimee.

Ralph- said...

aimee, if they dressed as the dynamic duon't, than they would have to spend the whole time hugging. cause that is was dumbon and carloser do during their shows.

aimee in little rock said...

No Ralph, I changed my mind - I want an all-Halloween costume video podcast now.

Ralph- said...

maybe ben and i will post something from the party on saturday and put it up on halloween....MAYBE. no promises.

i would love for you guys to see my costume and be like, what? that's dumb. i remember what ben is gonna be and it is one that everyone can get behind.

Ralph- said...

HERE IS A LIST OF MY PAST HALLOWEEN COSTUMES:

Ash: Evil Dead II
Adam Maitland: Beetlejuice
Riverman: Riverman
Brody Bruce: Mallrats
Michael McDonald: Singer/Songwriter
Carl: Aqua Teen Hunger Force
Jaime Hyneman: Mythbusters

as you can see, i go for random. But if i can make the costume accurate enough, then i've won. Looking at my costumes from the past 7 years, can you guess what i will be this year? the person who comes the closest will get some sort of aknowlegement!

aimee in little rock said...

Is it television or film?

Ralph- said...

you want hints? awe come on now. i have had this idea since January, i cant give hints away only for you to get it 4 days before the party.

its from a movie, and that is all you get. no more hints. you cant ask which movie. you may only take character guesses and i wont verify yes or no, unless you happen to email or IM me the correct character. it must remain a secret until saturday.

Obsidianrock said...

I know Pepsi Guy's theory is probably officially debunked already but in one of the preview clips for tommorow's episode it shows Desmond talking to the new guy Paulo

P.S. Ralph, we only use the "Gee" pronunciation in reference to a guy's name like "Guy Lafleur"

Ralph- said...

what if my name was Podcast Ralph and His was Pepsi Guy.

aimee in little rock said...

Never play 20 questions with Ralph. He's a mean, sneaky a-hole. But oh-so clever.

Obsidianrock said...

Then you would be right and I would have pie on my face.

I bow to Podcast Ralph.

Jimmy said...

We all have to bow to Ralph...it's in my Dharmalars contract!

aimee in little rock said...

Did he make you sign the contract in blood? Or was it some other kind of, you know, fluid?

Ralph- said...

Ninja Bun Slime actually

Japanese Pete said...

That was not my remark about Future Pepsi Guy. I won't take credit. I'll take debit if you know your PIN.

And Craig you should do a weekly video ipod broadcast or videoipodbroadcast for short. You can begin each one with "This is the videoipodbroadcast that you WATCH with your HAIR," or some other body part.

aimee in little rock said...

Hey Japanese Pete, how/when are you watching the new episodes now?

Are they broadcasting them on the AFN on base, or are you just watching them online?

Ralph- said...

you gotta watch them on ABC.com, the commercials are the best!

Japanese Pete said...

I get them on iTunes. It's apparently on AFN, but I don't know when. Although, The Office is in its first season on AFN, so they may not be new episodes of Lost. I actually can't get it from abc.com. It's only available to U.S. interneticans.

Hey, you have a great blog here! I'm definitely going to bookmark you!

I have a **ORPHANS** site/blog. It pretty much covers Orphan related stuff.
