LRNow News: The LOST Revisited Now Reunion Show


It has been over two years since several of us LOST podcaster got together just to talk about the show and what we have been up to since. And it had also been as long in seeing some ‘familiar faces’ in the chat that Tuesday night we recorded ( into the wee hours of the morning, as usual πŸ˜‰ ). It was wonderfully overwhelming. The episode runs for 5 hours of fun reminiscing about LOST , talking about just some of the things that happened during the years that Heath and I recorded The LOST Revisited Now podcast and a LOST/LOST Revisited Now Trivia Game that I invented has to be heard to be believed…including my mess ups as a game show host…lol.

LRNow News: Months of May/June 2010

First of all, I want to say “Congratulations!” to the mega talented Scott Lincoln, the artist who did the LOST Revisited Now logo and does the LOST caricatures for the “It’s About Bunnies” blog. His comic strip, ” Ralf the Destroyer” is featured/reviewed in the July, 2010 issue ( #1667) of Comics Buyer’s Guide magazine ( print and online version) . If you would like to read the review, check out the strip, etc. etc., you can go to

May has been a very busy month for the Lost Revisited Now podcast. Heath and I ( separately and together) have been recording several episodes about these last few hours of LOST. Here’s what we’ve been up to… ( All episodes can be found HERE. )

Episode 106 The Candidate ( weekly show)

Episode 107 Across the Sea Initial Reaction show with Donald ( Donald is LOST) and Matt ( Keys To LOST)

Episode 108 What They Died For/NY Times Talk I talk with Anna ( Jacob’s Cabin) and Donald ( Donald is LOST) about the episode and what we all saw, in various movie theaters, of the simulcast talk with Damon and Carlton. Matt from The Smoke Hatch podcast and Ms Wright shared their thoughts about the NY Times Talk . We also had a wonderful surprise visit with Alex (Congested) of Audibly LOST /creator of the LOST podcasters documentary, who was on his way to LA for the Jay and Jack finale party. Alex had just been at the NY Times Talk and he shared his experience there ( he got to ask Damon and Carlton the very last question before the finale aired. Quite an honor… congrats, Alex. πŸ˜‰ ) . Later, we were joined by Hurricane Len for more LOST talk. Thanks to everyone who stopped by that night/early morning and contributed to the podcast. 8)

Episode 109 Heath’s Initial Reaction of What They Died For with Axel Foley ( LOST Mythos TheoryCast)

Episode 110 Heath’s Initial Reaction of The End after the Jay and Jack Finale party on the West Coast

Jacob’s Cabin podcast Episode entitled
The End…But Only the Beginning of Our Ramblings” ( 5/24/2010) where Anna and I talk about our Initial Reaction about our LOST finale experience… after watching it together at the GSPN party.

Episode 111 is a birthday gift for Heath that Axel and I put together, along with several other fellow LOST fans/friends. (Again, thank you THE Axel Foley and everyone who sent in their voice-mails, emails, etc… amazing!)

Episode 112 is the first of Heath and my thoughts about The End. It is about each of our experiences at the LOST finale parties that we attended.

Episode 113 is the second part of our reaction to The End. This is where we break down the episode a little more. Here, we focus on the Flash Sideways aspect of the episode.

Episode 114 is the third part of our thoughts about The End. In this portion, we discuss the happenings on the Island. And of course, both 113 and 114 contain a few trademark ” LOST Alums” . πŸ™‚

UPDATE: Here is the link to the epic conclusion of the Donald is LOST Mytharc Series entitled ” Why They Podcasted to the End” ( That group photo is now my screen-saver πŸ˜‰ ).

In the next few days, Donald from the Donald is LOST podcast will be putting up his Mytharc finale episode. I will be adding a link to it when it is released. ( Again, thank you, Donald, for creating the Mytharc and asking me to join in the fun. It is brilliant… as are you, sir! πŸ™‚ ) .

UPDATE: Heath and my portion is on Part 3 of Losties final vidcast. By all means, check out Parts 1 and 2 ( as well as the rest of their vidcasts HERE.

Heath and I recorded a message for the witty and wonderful Jed and Cara of LOSTies w/ Jed and Cara. They are winding things down and will be putting together their final vidcast very soon. If you have enjoyed they show and would like to let them know before they “retire”, you can send them an email, voicemail, vidmail, baby furniture, etc., go to their site ( . They’d love to hear from ya! πŸ™‚

UPDATE: Here are the links to the first and second part of Matt and Leslie’s stupendous Keys To LOST Rockin’ Moments 2. You two rock too!!! ( R M 2 Part 1 {Heath’s moment is on this part} and R M 2 Part 2 { my moment is featured here) .

Another little something that I recorded was my second “Rockin’ LOST Moment” for the most excellent “Keys To LOST w/ Matt and Leslie” , that will out sometime mid June. I will post a link when that is out, as well. KTL put the first one out in December of last year and they did a fantastic job with it. It is the merging of scene(s) from LOST and a favorite and/or relevant song that matched, that several LOST fans sent to them.

As far as June and beyond, Heath and I will be taking a break for at least a couple of weeks. But we will be coming back with The Film List podcast and the first of several The Bunny Awards for the LRNow, starting with the Act 3 episode. We will be doing at least one Season Finale and the Series Bunny Awards, with the last of those with just Heath and my choices for the Series Awards on a separate podcast episode. We are working on the schedule and will update, as we get closer to the who’s/when’s . πŸ™‚

Wow… that was more than I thought….LOL!

I will be at the GSPN LOST Finale party and will be there along with the delightful Anna from the Jacob’s Cabin podcast . I believe that Cliff and Stephanie will be doing a live feed from the party. At some point , we will be dropping by the LOST Mythos Theorycast. Anna and I will also, most likely, do a podcast together afterward. It is going to be one busy, crazy, sad and happy weekend.

Heath and I have been taking part in Donald is LOST’s mytharc series. Donald will continue the series until at least the end of LOST. You can find the most recent episode ” The Podcasters” at click here. I encourage you to go back (and forward to newer episodes πŸ˜‰ ) to hear the rest of the DIL Mytharc Series.

LRNow News : Podcast Updates for February, 2010


It’s HERE!!! This sixth and finale season of LOST has arrived! This time around, The LOST Revisited Now will have two shows about each episode, starting with the first initial reaction show that took place early this morning ( Episode # 79, approx. 2 hrs ) . Along with so many fans/friends in the chat, on the line , in this episode were…

Matt from Keys To LOST podcast
Donald from Donald is LOST podcast
Mr. Bill from Behind the Cutting Edge podcast, Lost Edition (explicit)
James from Toronto ( Lost Review blog)
“Everybody’s Favorite Star Wars/HawthoRNe/Jacob’s Ladder fan, Glen
Curt Yanko from The Black Rock podcast.

This season, Donald, Heath and Matt will be hosting an initial reaction around 1 am EST on Wednesdays. This week, it will be carried on our feed. They will share hosting duties and will take turns posting it on there sites, rotating the schedule. So, you can always find the initial reactions on either the Donald is LOST site, the Keys To LOST site or The LOST Revisited site each week.

I’m not sure if I will get to all the initial reactions this season, since they will be starting after 1 am where I am. But like Hurley says ” Never say never, dude!” πŸ˜‰

Heath and I will also be recording a LRN episode on Thursdays at 4EST on Talkshoe after we’ve had a little time to “digest” each episode of LOST. If there are any changes to the schedule, I’ll let you know.

We have an actual end date as of last night. It will be Sunday, May 23rd, 2010 ( Reminded me how Survivor ends their season ) . We may have a one week break. We will most likely be hosting at least one show during that time…probably something bunny related. πŸ˜‰

Heath and I will be doing the final official ” FlashForward Live” podcast sometime this month or in March…date still pending.

But FF will most likely be talked about, to a lesser extent, on The Film List podcast, which I am now co hosting with Heath. Heath or both of us will be recording new episodes periodically throughout the last season of LOST and beyond.

LOST Thoughts : One Gift Arrived Early

Apparently, without my knowledge, some people decided to get together for the sole purpose of trying to make me laugh hysterically, marvel at their creativity, shake uncontrollably and cry though a box of Kleenex. Well, I hope they’re all very proud of themselves… they’ve succeeded.

And now, I would just like to take the time to reveal the names of those involved in this conspiracy, in order of appearance ( LRNow Episode #75) They are as follows…

Ryan and Jen from The Transmission podcast
Jed and Cara from LOSTies with Jed and Cara videocast
Donald from Donald is LOST podcast
Anna and Denise from Jacob’s Cabin podcast
Alex from It Only Ends Once podcast ( formally of Alex’s Hiatuscast)
Matt and Leslie from Keys To LOST podcast
Nancy Drew from LOSTaholics Rewatching podcast/ Black Rock podcast
Mr. Bill from Behind the Cutting Edge LOST podcast
Axel Foley from The LOST Mythos Theorycast
Mr. Payne from No Payne, No Glory LOST podcast
Glen i.e. Everyone’s Favorite Star Wars/HawthoRNe/Jacob’s Ladder fan

and of course…
Mr. Heath Solo of heathsworld blog, The Flash Forward LIVE podcast, The Film List podcast, The LOST Revisited Now podcast

I don’t even know what to say, right now… if ever… to truly express what this meant to me. You are all … oh, no… crying again.

For now, I’m just going to quote from a movie I watched last night…

” Remember, no man is a failure who has friends.”

erseN’s Theory

Disclaimer 1:
I’ll use the word “vision” because A. it’s shorter and 2. I’m so sick of everyone on the show saying “Flashforward” every few seconds! I don’t know why people would repeat the word so much when the whole damn world knows what they’re talking about. Flashforward. Yes. We got it. Everyone got it.

Disclaimer 2:
It’s gonna be very long and may be very boring. But you guys like “ramble on” podcasts so you might like this. πŸ™‚ In either case I’ll try to provide a very short summary at the end; maybe it will make it easier to talk about on the podcast if you don’t have the time to (which is euphemism for “don’t wanna”) read all of it. The reason I’m not sending only the short version is that I don’t exactly know what I’m going to say, so I want to ramble on until I think I make my point. Please skip to the end at the moment it starts getting boring I really don’t want to waste anyone’s time.


It’s all about the ultimate question: Can they change their future?

Yawn Version

The first thing that comes to mind is a paradox: If they change it, it won’t happen, so how would they have seen it in the first place? While this is generally seen as a reason why they shouldn’t be able to change, I think it’s still possible. See this case is slightly different than the one that every time-travel story has to (but usually doesn’t) deal with: X happens. Joe goes back in time to prevent it. He does. X doesn’t happen. Future Joe doesn’t have a reason to go back in time anymore. Paradox.

This is different though. There’s no physical time-travel, and the consciousness travels to the future; not to the past. So it can be argued that nothing is changed from A to B, because the consciousness doesn’t travel to the past to change something that has already happened (like the time-travel scenario above), but it travels to the future, and whatever a character does in the future, it can’t change anything because nothing has happened yet–it’s all happening for the first time. So there’s no problem with the actual time-travel. The problem is with when the time in that future eventually comes to pass and whether everything has to happen exactly as seen before. Can they do anything differently?

The easiest answer here is that they can’t change the future, with the easiest explanation being what’s called a self-fulfilling prophecy. This simply means that something that was prophesied eventually comes to pass solely, or at least in large part, due to the prophecy. For example, if Joe is currently planning to go to Hawaii this weekend, then sees in a vision that he is in Florida visiting his parents on Saturday, and decides to cancel his trip to Hawaii and instead visit his parents because he’s worried about the vision and what it might mean, that becomes a self-fulfilled prophecy: He is in Florida because he saw he was going to be in Florida. A lot of characters on the show seem to be taking this path, willingly or not. Mark and Olivia are so worried about their visions that they keep fighting about the visions and it seems to be harming their relationship severely, probably leading to them breaking up, Mark drinking again and Olivia falling for this very charming, compassionate man who killed about a billion people.

Now the question about this theory is: Does this have to happen? Do these self-fulfilling prophecies take place only with people who, knowingly or not, give in to their visions, or do these have to happen to everyone because of some sort of course-correction of the universe to keep the space/time continuum intact? I think it’s the former, and people can change what they’ve seen.

The easiest argument for that is that we don’t know for sure that these visions are even truly visions of the future. The fact that they’re consistent doesn’t positively prove they’re truly visions of the future. It is an overwhelming evidence, yes, but not proof.

I’ll try to explain this by changing the argument slightly and making the theory a little more complicated:

The visions are truly visions of future, but it’s not the future; it’s a future. A lot of people think of time as a line, and this is the idea that supports the concept of time as the “fourth dimension”. However, time isn’t necessarily one-dimensional (a line), it could very well be two-dimensional (a plane). What we experience as time is actually duration, which is sort of a journey within time. Think of the fourth dimension, “duration”, as a line from the past to the future, consisting of points that represent “moments”. Since we can see only three dimensions, we cannot see this line, which is in the fourth dimension. We cannot see everything from the past to the future at the same time just like we see a complete line with a starting and ending point. Instead, we live in the three dimensional space, and we can only see a “moment”, or a point, in that line, at a time. Because we can see only these points, and not the whole line, we can’t even be sure that the line is straight! If the line is actually an arc, for example, it would automatically be two-dimensional. So what I’m saying is that time is probably not a line or an arc at all; it’s probably a plane and we go straight, right and left when we journey within time, but don’t know the difference because we can’t see past the three dimensions, and everything above is only a series of points, which make only a line to us when we connect them in our minds. If we go out of the house, to the road, and to the park, and at any moment we only see and feel only the exact place we are in and nothing else, we can only connect those dots in a straight line when we think about it: House to road to park. No sense of right, left, up or down makes us think that it’s straight while it actually isn’t. In a non-equivalent but close enough example that is easier to understand: When you are at some seaport and look at the ocean to see a boat at the horizon coming towards you, you see it that it’s slowly rising, because it’s not just far ahead, it’s also actually below your level (if you were to draw a imaginary line from your feet straight ahead), because the world is round. Yet the boat seems to go always at the same level which is the sea level, because wherever you are on the world, you can only see close surroundings and it always feels like it’s flat. And people did think that the world is flat because of that illusion. So the one-dimensional experience in time is only such an illusion, because we only see and feel the moment we’re in.

So time is actually a plane, and consists of not a definitive history, but possibilities. Within our journey in time we don’t have to go straight ahead. Every choice we make is a fork on the road, and we can go in different directions. It just so happens that we can only see where we are, and we can’t see these forks and the road ahead, and it just feels like a straight road.

So, if time is actually a plane and not a line, that would mean that if you see a future, it doesn’t mean that it necessarily will happen for you. It exists, because the time plane (not time line) has every possible thing that may happen within it, but what will happen depends only on choices people make. If you see a future where X happens, you may avoid it by taking another path and see that it doesn’t happen. It’s just like seeing a road sign that says Florida, and choosing not to take that road. What you see is a possibility.

Wow. That was long. Let me try to summarize that in a few sentences…


The easiest answer to whether they can change the future or not is that they can’t, because the visions will become self-fulfilling prophecies either due to the characters’ actions or the universe forcing the events to keep space/time intact.

However, I think that time is not strictly linear. The time is multi-dimensional, and it consists of all possibilities. The linear feel of time is a matter of perception; an illusion that is a result of our being able to perceive time by experiencing only the moment we are in. We can’t see the future, the past, or the other possibilities. So if you see a future in a vision but eventually avoid it, it won’t necessarily be a paradox. Because if all things that can possibly happen exist in “time”, we can see one possibility in a vision but eventually come to experience another. There’s no paradox because you don’t actually change anything, the other possibility that you saw before is still there, but just not where you are right now. You only think you changed it because you only experience the moment you are in, and are oblivious to the fact that the other possibility still exists.

Anyway. Sorry for causing drowsiness, or any damage to your eyes. ( End of Theory)
