You think the name means anything specific, like, Sun might die? Or just "go down"?

Chew on that for a while.

PalmerEldritch said...

hey, aimee. sorry i missed your birthday. no power for a while.

happy birthday, aimeengton!


as for Sundown, it's probably a reference to the Gordon Lightfoot album.

that Gordon Lightfoot reference was an belated Aimee's birthday gift for Kim. or something.


holy fuck. it's LOSTuesday and i haven't listened to TLI yet!!!!!

PalmerEldritch said...

listening now. much better. olympics suck. :P

lost is gooooooood.

scrdmnkydst said...

I hope it's not about Sun dying...

Knowing our luck, it's probably something happening at Dusk.

that's what Sun/Jin said.

aimee is lost said...

I'd like to chew on Sawyer for a while. At sundown.

PalmerEldritch said...

he already sundowned the back of his boxers last week. let's hope he bathes before any chewing.

PalmerEldritch said...

why the heck didnt Jin hookup with a DHARMA hottie? it'd been three years. he didn't get lonely?

aimee is lost said...

I'll give him a spongebath prior to any chewing. Or perhaps a nice shower scene will occur on the show. I'm sick of the Kate shower scenes.

PalmerEldritch said...

or just buy him a TLI thong. nobody sharts their TLI thong.

Stephanie said...

I know what Sundown is in reference to so I can't participate in the speculation.

clementinesdaddy said...

I hope we get to see "evil" Sun in the alt-verse. Like some other people speculated, maybe JIN is trying to get away from Sun this time. Sun is some big time boss in the Paik org. and Jin is like "Whoa, I am in over my head!" and tries to get out.

Future prediction: Locke's right hand man, Sawyer, and Jacob's right hand man, Hurley will have a face off sometime in the future. Only...one...will...survive!

Who do YOU choose? Sawyer or Hurley? Me thinks this will be a tough choice...

aimee is lost said...

That's like having to choose between my heart & my loins.

Loins usually wins.

mb said...

Sundown is the name of the airline that the "somebody" that's coming to the island will be on when it crashes into the temple.






I keed people, I keed ;)

aimee is lost said...

Since "Wallace" is a Scottish name, and Desmond is Scottish, maybe it really is him. I'd like to think so, mostly because my loins miss him.

But if I were Desmond, I would so want to kick Jacob's ass for making me come back to the island.

memphish said...

I think Jin will speak English in the alt-verse and will reveal it to get out of trouble about the watch the same way Sun revealed her English in House of the Rising Sun.

What Other/Lostie do you think will appear in the Alt-verse? I vote for Pickett. It should be Colleen Pickett, but she's busy in Caprica, so I think it will be Danny Pickett as the TSA/Customs interrogator. Or maybe it will be Korean speaking Charlotte. Barf.

Kelly Jo said...

Happy LOSTuesday everyone!

mb said...

Ugh. I don't think I can stomach more Danny Pickett (have no idea if he's returning or not). He and Keamy are the only two characters I've had a visceral negative reaction to in Lost.

memphish said...

I know nothing other than the title of the episode, so I'm purely speculating. I've even taken to Ralph's scheme of avoiding looking at the guest stars when the credits roll so I won't even know until they show up in the episode. I figure someone has to show up though.

Holder said...

I was thinking about the images shown in the lighthouse mirrors. Other than being the places where Jacob first touched out Losties (which doesn't make sense b/c we see Jack's childhood house), I think it could be one of two things.

1. It could be where our Losties' daddy issues begin. Jack-issues at home with his dad. Jin and Sun-issues with Mr. Paik. Sawyer-his dad's funeral....I dunno.

2. Where our Losties get new names. Sun-Last name changes to Kwon. Sawyer-adopts the name Sawyer. Jack-um...I dunno.

Just some thoughts.

mb said...

It's a good point, and I could totally see Danny Pickett as a TSA guy.

I would actually like it if they brought back Pickett and Keamy in the alt-verse and I liked them. I need closure - lol

mb said...

I like your first idea Holder. Those moments/places could be what connects them to the island in some way & why they are there.

Kyle from Kentucky said...

Is this the night for a Desmond David Wallace appearance?

mb said...

OMG - I just realized that I never listened to the end of TLI - b/c I'm listening to Kim sing "Oh Canada" - AWESOME :D

aimee is lost said...

Yeah, that was too funny. I haven't listened to the edited version of TLI so I didn't know if she was going to include her patriotic singing debut or not.

If this is a Kwon-centric episode, I'm trying to think of what characters they're connected to. The only one I can think of is Widmore (because Paik does business with him). He could be the intended recipient of the Rolex. We've seen him in L.A. before after all.

Kablamo!

Stephanie said...

Hearing Kim's O Canada made me smile all day long yesterday.

aimee is lost said...

...I forgot that I went on a bit of cranky rant over the fanbitching. That was fun.

PalmerEldritch said...

bitching about fanbitching is cool.

where did you see all that bitching? e-mails? e-bitching? sounds annoying.

Holder said...

I think the bitching she was talking about was here on the blogspot. You bitchers.

Holder said...

I was probably one of them though.

aimee is lost said...

It was a combination of blogspotters, emailers, texters, and general internet news articles. There's a lot of bitches out there.

** NERD ALERT **

Lazing around IMDB trying to determine Jorge Garcia's & Mark Pellegrino's height difference (which it turns out is only 1-2 inches). Discovered something ridiculously dorky....

Jorge Garcia's character in the film Deck the Halls was named Wallace.

LOL.

Holder said...

Hey Aimee, while you're around I wanted to ask if you could show me your laminated blast door map real quick.

memphish said...

I like the idea that we'll see Jin deliver the watch.

I heard there was writing over the lighthouse mirror that was reversed and said something like "I don't show you your face I show you your daddy issues." They said that on The Transmission, but I don't see it on Lostpedia. Gonna search some more. But that would be along the lines of what you theorized Holder. That would mean Kate's number would show her discovering the photo that proved her stepdaddy was her daddy right?

Holli

memphish said...

After more digging, the person at The Transmission blog claims to have seen this daddy issue transcription at Lostpedia. I can't find it there or see anything in the screen caps of the lighthouse. I understand there was something similar in Harry Potter. Maybe it's just wishful thinking it was here too.

memphish said...

And now, to continue the serial posting, turns out it was a hoax. Dang that Lostpedia editing function.

On a different note, literally, if anyone enjoyed David Shephard's Chopin, there is some free Chopin on Amazon today. Not the piece David was playing, but there is the Funeral March.

Oh Canada...

*sigh*
That's my song. I'm going through Olympic withdrawal.

I'm so looking forward to tonight's episode. I'll be watching with the West Coasters this evening so someone (Aimee ;) ) will have to make a new thread for the Post-episode discussion.

I don't think Sun will die in this episode--it's too soon for a major death. Plus, that would just be cruel. Maybe Charlie will make an appearance in this ep because both him and Jin were taken away by the authorities in the S6 premiere.

In the alt-world, what do we think--Sun doesn't know English? What if Jin speaks English???

Hummmmm...

aimee is lost said...

Supercute neighbor guy is supposed to help me pick up my new couch today. So if I'm not too busy making out with him on my new couch this evening, I'll try to remember to post the new thread.

PalmerEldritch said...

"you'd be the perfect male specimen... if only you didnt have shoulders!"

Stephanie said...

Click for joyous tones from the True North.

PalmerEldritch said...

new ringtone, steph? ;)

aimee is lost said...

If it's any consolation, supercute neighbor guy has a southern accent very similar to Kyle's.

And I recently went on a date with a guy named Kyle (who listens to TLI now).

"Hey Aimee, while you're around I wanted to ask if you could show me your laminated blast door map real quick"

Is this a Lost-nerd come-on?
;)

Holder - don't know if you're just looking for a good image to look at but lost4815162342.com has a great interactive one

Stephanie said...

I'm too lazy to look but is the lighthouse on the blastdoor map?

aimee is lost said...

Any man that talks Lost to me is attractive. And in danger.

aimee is lost said...

On a total sidenote, let me just state for the record that Kim is the queen of accents. I'm cracking up at work right now.

PalmerEldritch said...

aimee, i hear that the ancient japanese philosopher Dogen invented a a hair straightening procedure still used today.



hey, so, that LOST show. i'm guessing Sun and Jin won't run into each other until the very end of the episode if at all. which probably means they'll be reunited 10 minutes in. jerks.

in It's A Wonderful LOST, Jin will know English and be trying to leave Korea forever with Sun but Sun will not know English and will be loyal to her father and betray Jin somehow and deliver that watch. at which point, the viewing audience will say "ohhhhh, snap."

Kyle from Kentucky said...

I talked to Andy. Its not Jin/Sun centric

Kyle from Kentucky said...

I'm so fucken excited. You know we'll only be able to do this a few more times. Tuesdays/Wednesdays/Thursdays will never be the same...sigh

by 'this' I mean watch a new episode of LOST. I mean when I woke up this morning I was stiff and I was smiling. The smiling was just bc I knew we would get a new episode tonight. Try peeing in the morning right after you get up when you're a man. Maybe there's something to squatting..?

mb said...

That's a good question Steph - I'm looking but I don't see it.

JoeSC said...

"when I woke up this morning I was stiff and I was smiling"

Sounds like a great fucking morning to me!

i preferred hearing about the rescued dog.

PalmerEldritch said...

LOOOOOOOOST!!!

Tha Kid said...

Tha Kid is starving.

I guess Aimee was probably hooking up with "SCNG" since the new ep thread is not up yet.

Enjoy the new couch Aimee and happy belated bday.

I listened to old podcasts during the hiatus and one of 'em was recorded on Aimee's birthday so I got tricked that Aimee's birthday was months ago.

Holder said...

NEW THREEEEAD

Holder said...

Jesus Christ I am fucking shaking. That has to be (no hyperbole) one of the top 3 episodes of Lost ever.
