Little Lost sausages in cans

Monday, April 30th, 2007 by calixton

Another islander-type food that seems to be missing from the regular DHARMA Initiative food drops are Vienna sausages. I remember as a kid wondering who the Viennese were and why they seemed to like cylindrical–/capsule-shaped foods like Vienna sausages and Vienna fingers. Do they even sell Vienna fingers anymore? I guess they do. Folks who […]

Keep your Lost notes

Wednesday, April 25th, 2007 by calixton

You may have noticed Charlie writing in a composition book during last week’s Lost. (I’m assuming he was working on a Drive Shaft comeback hit since he had his guitar with him.) But you may not have noticed that he was using a DHARMA Initiative data collection notebook—you know, then ones they had at the […]

Cherry Blossom Festival

Wednesday, April 25th, 2007 by calixton

The Northern California Cherry Blossom Festival (at San Francisco’s Japantown) is not so much an opportunity to contemplate cherry blossoms as it is an opportunity to drink free sake on a public street. That’s kind of my take on it. There are, of course, cultural demonstrations of Japanese folk dancing, martial arts, kimonos, pottery, etc., […]

Not your generic Lost beer…

Thursday, April 19th, 2007 by calixton

Max Pictures’ good friend and sometimes cameraman/sound engineer Kamen Rider recently celebrated a birthday. To honor his many years of service to humanity I set out on the not-so-easy task of making DHARMA Initiative beer labels. “Why not-so-easy?” you ask. Well, not-so-easy because: I had to pick beer that Kamen Rider would like Kamen Rider […]

I’m a Mac. (But PC is funnier.)

Monday, April 16th, 2007 by calixton

Unless you’ve been under a rock (TV-wise) for the past year or so, you’ve probably seen Apple’s “I’m a Mac. I’m a PC.” commercials. John Hodgeman, who plays the PC in the ads was recently on NPR’s This American Life speaking about his experiences as someone who has become ‘somewhat famous’ (from having written a […]

Product placement?

Wednesday, April 11th, 2007 by calixton

Is it just me or did Lost move into familiar television territory last week? No, I’m not referring to the return of the show to Lost-normalcy after the swift, fan-induced demise of Nikki and Paulo (from Lost-meets-Twilight Zone-meets-V.I.P. episode ‘Exposé’). What caught my attention last Wednesday was the occurrence of what seemed suspiciously like product […]

LOST labels for your DHARMA Initiative needs

Tuesday, April 10th, 2007 by calixton

Since I apparently haven’t tired of converting everything in the larder to DHARMA Initiative-brand products it seems that a singular repository for all these LOST labels is in order. Newest items will appear at the top of list with the rest in some sort of semi-coherent order (possibly alphabetical). The latest: DHARMA Initiative Travel ad […]

Salvaged from The Flame

Wednesday, April 4th, 2007 by calixton

Ah, The Flame. Why did Locke have to blow the whole place up (in Episode ‘Enter 77’)? Wait, was it because it was called The Flame? Anyway, it seems that all is not lost (ugh, bad pun). After all, Sayid did grab the barracks map (presumedly) from the DHARMA Initiative Operations Manual binder. In any […]
