Start your LOST day…

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010 by calixton

…the DHARMA Initiative way! Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day (you do know that, right?), and, despite being in an indeterminate place and time, life on LOST Island is no different—breakfast is important. So, when wild chicken eggs, boar bacon, and taro-flour bread are in short supply, make sure […]

LOST-fully clean…

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010 by calixton

…You’re not fully clean, until you’re LOST-fully clean. And how does one get LOST-fully clean, you ask? By using DHARMA Initiative Soap (like Kate at the Hydra Station above), of course! And, it just so happens we were lucky enough to receive two types of DI soap in our recent PRD (product resupply drop): 4.25 […]

LOST pasta…

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009 by calixton

…in cans. As a kid growing up in the ’70s, one of the first things that I was allowed to cook on the stove was pasta from a can. Of the two competing brands of the time, Chef Boyardee and Franco-American, I preferred Chef Boyardee. Inexplicably, I associated the mustachioed Chef Boyardee with a superior—more […]

The Bradbury Building in Downtown L.A.…

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009 by calixton

…2009 vs. 2019. About two weeks ago, Miss T and I spent a hot summer’s afternoon in Downtown Los Angeles at the Bradbury Building, current home of the L.A.P.D. Internal Affairs department and future home of J.F. Sebastian in Blade Runner. On the day we visited, it was hot, bright, and the Bradbury appeared as […]

More Lost varietals…

Thursday, July 16th, 2009 by calixton

…for your DHARMA Initiative wine cellar. We know that the DHARMA Initiative keeps their personnel hale and hearty with a semi-steady supply of wines. Thus far on the show we’ve seen bottled Merlot and Cabernet and generic red wine in a box. Well, recently several more DI wines have come to light: Pinot Noir and […]

Kids fighting ghosts…

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009 by calixton

…in anime (Natsume Yūjin-Chō and Ghost Stories). [Warning: Rambling anime pseudo-review blah-blah-blah follows.] Miss T and I have been watching two anime series that delve into Japanese ghost folklore. Both feature: teen-aged protagonists (like most anime, seemingly); powerful spirits in the form of cats; Japanese ghosts and monsters; and, books with the ability to deal […]

Fight Lost germs…

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009 by calixton

…with DHARMA Initiative Disinfectant Spray. Just because Lost is on hiatus until 2010 there’s no reason to slack off on maintenance and cleaning of your local DHARMA Initiative station. At The Hut we’re running low on some DHARMA Initiative cleaning supplies, but fortunately we still have an ample supply of DI Disinfectant Spray. It’s great […]

When life gives you Lost lemons…

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009 by calixton

…make Lost lemonade. Even though Lost is on summer (and fall, and part of winter) break, DHARMA Initiative materiel keeps coming. It’s probably because the last time I entered 2-4 in the computer for a supply drop, it seemed like it wasn’t going through, so I kept entering it. This week’s drop included, for the […]

Lost ad for last Lost?

Wednesday, May 13th, 2009 by calixton

The Season 5 finale for Lost airs tonight (*sob* *choke*) and it seems kind of fitting that we found this ad for DHARMA Initiative Travel in a mid-1970s Oceanic Airlines INflight magazine. As usual, you can view the ad at maxpixpix on Flickr. Holy Hannah, Season 6 doesn’t start until February 2010!?! I, uh, guess […]

Plants vs Zombies…

Friday, May 8th, 2009 by calixton

…vs Video Games vs Girl-pop. Similar to how “Weird Al” Yanovic’s “The Saga Begins” tells the entire Star Wars: Episode I story in song*, Laura Shigihara’s “Zombies on Your Lawn” music video tells you about the game Plants vs Zombies in bubbly girl-pop. You can read more about the game and the music at Laura’s […]
