Tuesday, April 15th, 2008 by calixton

It was a little over a year ago when Max Pictures started churning out DHARMA Initiative labels for the Lost-obsessed (you know, people like us). In that time we’ve created a lot of labels that no one but us is likely to ever use. So in an effort to grind out every last bit of […]

Summer Movie: Stardust

Thursday, August 16th, 2007 by calixton

Continuing on our Summer 2007 Movie Quest, Miss T and I, along with Programmer Girl and the post-NYC Wonderduo, ventured out into the Central Valley mid-day heat to catch an expensive ($7.25!) matinee of Neil Gaiman’s Stardust. Having not read the illustrated novella (also by Neil Gaiman) in a number of years, I went into […]

Harry Potter Mania Comes as a Surprise (to Me)

Monday, July 23rd, 2007 by calixton

Last week our friend GA (one half of the post-NYC Wonderduo) mentioned that she’d be working during our local Borders’ Grand Hallows Ball—Borders Books’ nationwide launch for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. GA said she and the rest of the store staff would be in Harry Potter cosplay, so we should drop by and […]

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 […]

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 […]
