LOST Thougths: The Finale is Coming! The Finale is Coming!

Well, just a few short hours ( actually LONG hours) until tonite’s LOST finale. So I just wanted to reflect on this season and some …SOME…of my favorite LOST moments and/or additions.

The Freighties: One of the best introductions of new characters on ANY show, ever! (Don’t NikkiandPaulo them, please.)
Hurley seeing Charlie by the Ho Ho’s.
Jack’s reaction to finding out Claire is his half sister.
“What happened to them? He did” (Locke pointing at Ben).
Taller Ghost Walt – may be my favorite Sawyer nickname (next to “Babynapper”)
Desmond’s phone call to Penny…eight years later
Bernie & Rosie, together again!
The merging of Sarcastic Sawyer & Genial James
In the future, Ben is a Veterinarian
Richard Alpert showing up at Locke’s birth
The Return of Michael Dawson/Kevin Johnson (unfortuately spoiled… but still … )
Keamy….he’s genuinely scary.
Matthew Abbadon…ALSO genuinely scary.
More Geronimo Jackson sightings…who ARE these guys?
“YOU’RE MINE!!!” ( Ben, you smooth talker, you. I think I dated him in high school.)
“It’s really stressful being an Other, JacK.”
Jorge and his ” tears on demand” . He is just awesome! ๐Ÿ™‚
“NOT YET”
Ben and Hugo have an “International Coffees” moment over an Apollo bar
Sun “slapping” Mr. Paik ( financially, anyhow)
Sun and Hurley at Jin’s grave (Say it ain’t so!)
Red shirts on the rescue raft
Kate and Jack’s engagement moment ( I have no preference in the great shipper debate. I just thought it was well done)
The fellas playing RISK.
The Sayid/Nadia reunion …but sadly…will be cut short.
The Linus/Widmore showdown
“Desmond Hume is my constant.”
Claire’s creepy cabin smile
Ben’s “See you at dinner”, carrying his clean bedding.
Locke’s “breakfast” for Miles.
” Because I have a man on the boat”
Christian Shephard…period.

LOST Parody : Me and You, Jin and Sawyer Too

As we are just mere hours away from Parts 2 and 3 of the finale (along with extra goodies in a replaying of Part 1), I’ve decided to post another LOST parody. This one is called “Me and You, Jin and Sawyer Too”, a parody of that groovy pop classic, “Me and You and a Dog Named Boo” by Lobo. It was written from the perspective of good ol’ fun time Hurley and his stumbling upon a rusted out VW….sorry, Dharma van.

(If you’d like to hear more LOST Parodies, click the link or find them under “LOST Parodies” under “Catergories” in the Blogroll)

ME AND YOU, JIN AND SAWYER TOO

I remember to this day
When I slapped you in your face
How Desmond could be wrong
And we should “Seize the Day”
Will power made that old van go
Or was it skunky beer, I don’t know
Oh, how I wish we were back on that hill again

Me and you, Jin and Sawyer too
Tempting fate in that Dharma van
Me and you, Jin and Sawyer too
And that dude, Roger Workman

I can still recall
How that V Dub sure was stalled
And how we kept on workin’
Despite the Red Neck Man
So, then Sawyer took ol’ Jin to school
He taught him English phrases, that was cool
I’m sure Sun will like to hear
She don’t look fat in those pants

Me and you, Jin and Sawyer too
Tempting fate in that Dharma van
Me and you, Jin and Sawyer too
And that dude, Roger Workman

I’ll never forget that day
You told me, basically, “Go away!”
That I was too big for the boat
Dude, that caused me such pain
But I guess fate won the last round
Cuz to save us, Dude, well you drowned
Just wish you were “shotgun”
Plowin’ The Others with that van!

Me and you, Jin and Sawyer too
Drivin’ ’round in that Dharma van
Me and you, Jin and Sawyer too
And that dude, Roger Workman

Me and you, Jin and Sawyer too
Doin’ donuts in that hippie van
Me and you, Jin and Sawyer too
And that dude, Roger Workman

Me and you, Jin and Sawyer too
Tempting fate in that Dharma van
Me and you, Jin and Sawyer too
And that dude, Roger Workman

Me and You, Jin and Sawyer Too

(Parody of the song ” Me and You and a Dog Named Boo” by Lobo { Roland Kent LaVoie, Big Tree Records, 1971} New lyrics by Wendy Lincoln, 2007)

LOST Thoughts: Father’s Day on the Island

Wayne Henderson of the Wayne’s Take on LOST podcast posed an interesting question on GSPN forum.(His show can be found on the LOST Podcasting Network in the Blogroll. )
June is the month of Father’s Day. What are some things the Losties can do to celebrate? Here was my suggestion:

They could stage the Father’s Day LOST Olympiad. Some of the events could be…

First, it will commence with the Undousable Torch Run of the entire Island. This will conclude on the beach with the Lighting of the tarp & bamboo re-creation of Kateโ€™s parentsโ€™ gas-filled farm house.

Opening Ceremonies : The Locke Toss

The Mr. Paik “giving a message” shot put
The Thomas Dodge (Responsiblities) Ball
The David Reyes Dead Beat Daddy Dash
The Roger Linus Breath Holding Contest
The Christian Shephard Test of Balance (one hand , a glass of scotch, the other a scalpel, all while treading on thin ice)
The Michael Dawson Tailies Skeet Shoot

Final Event: The Real Sawyer Tug O’ War (with chains)

Closing Event: The “Medal” Ceremonies (made of “extra” wire from the Fuselage strung through lids of Dharma brand cling peaches) and the raising of the Island flag (Hurley’s tie dye t-shirt) while humming a very moving rendition of Charlie Pace’s “Monster Eats the Pilot”.

Little unexpected thing just happened. As soon as I posted it, Wayne posted back. He asked if I would call or mp3 the above for his show! Um..yes, please. Thanks, Wayne! ( Too cool!) ๐Ÿ™‚

LOST Thoughts : There’s No Place Like Home – The Fellowship of Ly-ing

The scatter has occured. And this after we lost our only genuine Hobbit in the bunch!

This is the beginning of the finale, so I don’t have totality to fall back on. I guess I am the one standing in the shadow of the genius. That is why I’m going to do this “Hemmingway -style” this week. Ratta tat tat. So let’s get to it…

Rabbit’s feet appear. One foot is with chopper pilot. One foot is with Hurley’s birthday ride. It’s about bunnies. Pilot worried about “mojo”. Can’t ask Austin. Powers not Kate. Different spelling anyhow. Is the “mojo” O6? Something/one else on chopper?

Karen Decker, Oceanic’s slick chick. Stick to story. What would that be?

Jack’s mom’s back. Wasn’t at his wedding. Curious. Sun burns Daddy Paik. An Oceanic “logo” on his tie? Hurley & Sayid, brothers in arms. Carmen Reyes, everybody’s mama. Love her! Kate not feeling the love. Is her Austen dad dead? Disowned her?

Keeping promises. It is important to Jack. Also important to Ben. “I gave my word”. What is Ben’s word worth? Keep the change.

Daniel’s notebook like Indiana Jones’ dad’s notebook. One found past treasure. One for future travel. Both for their survival. “We need to get off this island!” Daniel protective of Charlotte. Leaves her for first run to freighter. Knows he’ll be back. As best he can tell, anyways.

Sawyer not wanting off island. Questions Jack’s need to leave. Ben’s in Sawyer’s head now. Just like James’ feared. Great Sawyer line: ” Hold on! You don’t get to die alone!”. Jack bested with his own motto. Ouch.

Day 108 is day of rescue. Numbers, Dude. Numbers. Jack “watched” Sun at conference. Don’t mess up. Why so nervous about Sun, Jack? Is Jin still alive? More about that later.

Sayid and Nadia. So happy! Future flash recall. Now, so sad.

Ben says moving island is “dangerous and unpredictable” Pot calling the kettle black.

Hugo has surprise party. It’s a joyous yet pychologically scaring occasion. In other words, typical birthday.
Another Geronimo Jackson sighting. Their album in DJ booth. Most touring they’ve ever done.

Crackers 15 years old, Hugo. Numbers, Dude. Numbers.

Sayid and Juliet’s unspoken trust. Liking it! Potential new ship: Sayet? Julied? Can a man and woman just be friends? Yes, LOST. They can.

How did Sun grift Daddy? Used 5 different banks. Were those the other O6’s ? Paik Sunburned again. Jin is dead. Sun holds two responsible. Mr. Paik and who? Jack? Keamy? Ben? Michael? Widmore? Herself? Sun said Daddy ruined Jin’s life. Death = way past ruined! Slip of the tongue? Is this a clue? Is Jin alive?

Mr. Clucks back in business. 8 piece on me, Hugo. Daddy finishes Camaro. Odometer reads 481516 2342. Is this the Island’s doing? Is Cheech “Gaslighting ” Hugo for money? Time will tell.

Red shirts on the rescue raft. Sweet!

I see. You see. We all see the C4. Keamy’s the trigger man.

Jack finding out about Claire. Claire’s mom spills it. She’s out of the coma. Didn’t see THAT coming! Darlton, you win.

New Otherton’s clothes in cleaners? Didn’t lose as many Others as I thought. Richard Alpert captures 2 of the six. Is this what happens when you’ve found the “Fountain of Youth” but have no cable?
*Note to self: Reinvest in Dharma Theatrical Glue factory*

Ben to Locke : “Anthuriums”?! Man, I need to brush up on my Botany. I’m flora impaired.

The Fellowship of the Ly-ing (Oceanic 6) : as of now
Sayid & Kate- Richard’s captives
Jack- Trekkin’ with Sawyer
Sun & Aaron- On boat that might go “Boom Boom”
Hugo- Storming the Orchid…well, actually hiding in the bushes NEAR the Orchid, polishing off those ancient crackers of wisdom.
Dig music montages on LOST. Keep um’ comin’!

I will be rewatching this episode of LOST on Thursday, along with the 2nd and 3rd parts. 3 hours of LOST … as it should be.

LOST Parody – “Goin’ to Tallahassee”

Well, here we are a little over a week away from the LOST finale. So, I’m slapping out another parody to help fill the time.

This one is dedicated to Darlton’s geographical fixation called “Goin’ to Tallahassee”, a parody of the song “Going Up the Country” by Canned Heat. I got the idea for it when listening to Josh and Amanda on the LOST Flashbacks during the hiatus. They said the phrase “going to Tallahassee” a few times while reviewing a vintage episode, and it got the ol’ wheels turnin’ in my head. (P.S. Thanks LOST Flashbacks for helping us get through “the dry season” ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) (you can also find them on the LOST Podcasting Network)
Please forgive the vocals but in trying to ” capture the essense” of the original, it’s sounds more like the Kermit the Frog version. ๐Ÿ™‚

(If you’d like to hear more LOST Parodies, click the link or find them under “LOST Parodies” under “Catergories” in the Blogroll)

GOIN’ TO TALLAHASSEE

I’m goin’ to Tallahassee, that’s where I’m gonna go
I’m goin’ to Tallahassee, that’s where I’m gonna go
I’m goin’ to some place where Sawyer’s been before

I’m goin’, I’m goin’ to get the guy who broke Locke’s spine
Well, I’m gonna get the guy who broke Locke’s spine
Gonna shop at strip malls and eat waffles all the time

I’m goin’ where that pretty Kate tried to get away
I’m goin’ where that pretty Kate tried to get away
After fussin’ and fightin’, no bus to Tallahassee for Kate

Now, Richard, pack your submarine, you know you’ve got to leave today
Just exactly where you’re goin’, Ben can’t say
But you’ve got to be in the Sunshine State
Cuz there’s a brand new game that Benny wants to play

No use in you runnin’ or screamin’ and cryin’
Cuz John Locke’s box is where you are confined

Goin To Tallahassee MP3
(Parody of “Going Up the Country” by Canned Heat { Alan Wilson, Atlantic Records, 1969}
New lyrics by Wendy Lincoln, 2007)

LOST Thoughts: Smoke(y) Gets in Your Eyes

I was away for a couple days without blogging access. Now, I am back but am still gathering my LOST thoughts about “There’s No Place Like Home, Part 1”. I was packing for my trip and had to get up a few hours after I watched the episode. So I am going to rewatch it and will be blogging about it soon.

In the meantime, was reading a post by someone who is a fellow LOST fan. (www.justinthebeast.wordpress.com) He was talking about how he believes Smokey could be able to be summoned by Ben.

And this got me thinking. If Ben can call “Cerubus ” , has he been sending that billowy Marmaduke of Death out since the beginning, starting with the pilot (in the Pilot)? ( ” Go on, boy! Go get the big, bad mercenaries….Oh, what a good boy! Daddy has a treat! Yes, he does! *rubs smokey ears* )

In Season One’s Walkabout, was this Ben’s actual first attempt of ” I came for you, John?” But when Smokey grabbed John by the ankle and dragged him into a hole, (Exodus, Season One) Jack chucks one of the “boom sticks” into it (that he wasn’t supposed to have…Jack, you adorable little control freak, you!). Thus, Smokey lets go and now Ben has to get Locke the old fashioned way… getting caught in a booby trap and shot with an arrow by a crazy French chick, therefore requiring the medical attention of Dr. Jack, who just happens to be sharing living quarters there in a groovified mystery hatch with John “Button, button, who pushed the button” Locke (Oh, and throw in the occasional severe trouncing by your typical, run-of-the-mill techno geek/torturer, just to keep things “spicy”).

You got to give him this much. Ben is really dedicated to his job…..whatever THAT is :).

LOST Thought: 31 Minutes and The Seventh Seal

At the start of Season 4, I watched the Ingmar Bergman film, The Seventh Seal http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Seventh_Seal. It is a symbolic take on the Beginning of the End, i.e. Armagedon (not without notice, that was the title of this season’s first episode). I believe this 1957 B & W Swedish existential movie has MANY Lost connections. If you ever get a chance to watch it, please do. (The chess scenes are eerily familiar.) But one of the things that struck me was within the first few frames. On the screen was this verse from the Bible’s Book of Revelation. “And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour” (Revelation 8:1). “About the space of half an hour”. Is this why Daniel’sdanielfaraday-t rocket came back 31 minutes later? Was this as if time “stood still” and was an indication of what is taking place in” the spirtual realm” is now going to start affecting the Island, and in essense, the rest of the “real world”? Just throwing it out there :).
