Lost again

Wednesday, March 28th, 2007 by calixton

Okay, it’s Wednesday again, and Wednesday means Lost. And Lost means more DHARMA Initiative food labels (well, around here it does). First, a label-related story. This all started with Miss T pointing me to the Insanely Great Tees News item about their Lost-viewing party complete with DHARMA Initiative-branded food. They posted PDFs of their labels […]

A better comp book

Sunday, March 25th, 2007 by calixton

I like comp(osition) books. I’ve been putting down my inane ramblings and inept drawings in Mead, 100-sheet, 200-page composition books for years. By the time I’m done with one, they look like the photo above—beat-up and beaten down. Now, arranged on bookshelves by the thousands (ala John Doe’s apartment in Se7en), these thrashed comp books […]

Lost SPAM® found

Thursday, March 22nd, 2007 by calixton

Before last week’s episode of Lost I lamented… okay, complained… okay, mentioned… Anyway, I talked about how the Losties had lots of DHARMA Initiative chow to eat, but what they really should be eating (as good islanders should) is canned chili and SPAM. Now I know why the tail section survivors didn’t have any stores […]

Train Life’s second life

Thursday, March 22nd, 2007 by calixton

Last month I mentioned that after years of being buried on page 5 (or worse) of search engine results, typing Train Life in Google finally brought back a page 1 result. This was due to Train Life being included in the Internet Movie Database (IMDb). Sadly, since Google’s search database is a constantly evolving thing, […]

tomodachi kara mono—stuff from friends

Thursday, March 15th, 2007 by onigiri

It’s a lovely day. Calixton and I are waiting for BART. There is a crisp breeze coming off the bay, and some fat pigeons are bobbing around the platform. Okay, the wait is killing me now. Curse you BART and your slow, sunday schedule! Alright, that’s a bit harsh. I love BART, really. Even with […]

What Lost islanders should really be eating

Wednesday, March 14th, 2007 by calixton

Every week the Lost survivors can be seen consuming food found naturally on the island—fruit, fish, shellfish, boar (though lately not so much)—and DHARMA Initiative supplies—canned vegetables, pasta, cookies, crackers, etc. But, as anyone who’s spent time in Hawaii (where Lost is filmed) can attest, there are some foodstuffs that are sorely missing from the […]


Wednesday, March 7th, 2007 by calixton

I’m not sure if I saw this on an aggregator site somewhere (like popurls) or if Miss T pointed it out to me, but last week I read about the folks at Insanely Great Tees having a Lost-viewing party complete with DHARMA Initiative-labeled food and drink. How could I not want to do the same […]
