Lost food in cans

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009 by calixton

Lost is back. According to the show’s producers, Season 5 begins the rush to the show’s end (Season 6 ends the series) and we’ll supposedly start to get more answers to Lost’s countless mysteries. This penultimate season should also be more action-packed as the characters’ various crisscrossing stories come crashing together, canceling each other out, […]

Weathered sconces…

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009 by calixton

…at Richmond BART. Late this afternoon. (This late afternoon thing is becoming a theme.) I don’t know if these light fixtures were painted at one time or if they’ve just been bleached by sun, wind, and rain. Or, it could be from pigeons or seagulls (I hope not).

Edited sky…

…over Richmond, California. Late this afternoon. No major edits here. Just painted out a hawk flying high in the distance and a couple of street lamps. “I reject your reality and substitute my own.”

Bacon, bacon, bacon…

Friday, January 23rd, 2009 by calixton

…BACON! Mmmm, bacon. Last month, word about amazing new bacon inventions (like bacon maple donuts and chicken-fried bacon) began swirling around the office, tempting the appetites and imaginations of myself and like-minded coworkers. Eventually, the constant bacon talk (without accompanying bacon action) ended up making me cranky. Cranky for bacon. It’s not clear if my […]

Lost (Tomato Paste) Premiere

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009 by calixton

It’s just hours now until Lost kicks off its 2009 season—hopefully you have some suitable Lost-themed festivities planned for the event. But, even if you’re not hosting a star-studded Hollywood bash or a fanboy-encrusted living room viewing party, there’s no reason not to enjoy a quiet, DHARMA Initiative-supplied dinner during the 3-hour Season 5 premiere. […]

Inauguration Day…

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009 by calixton

…live via satellite (at UC Berkeley). Like thousands of other large and small gatherings around the world, UC Berkeley provided a public venue for a viewing of the inauguration of President Barack Obama. Students, faculty, staff, and friends gathered en masse in Upper Sproul Plaza to watch the inauguration proceedings on a giant video screen. […]

More Lost dip

Sunday, January 18th, 2009 by calixton

The countdown for Lost’s Season 5 premiere continues (you’re counting down, right?)—just three days left now. For those of you looking for premiere night party supplies, the Hanso Foundation has added a new product: DHARMA Initiative Guacamole Dip (11.5 OZ) The dip isn’t showing up in supply drops yet, though, so if you need some […]

Lost returns next week!

Friday, January 16th, 2009 by calixton

Our long, hard winter of discontent is nearly over—Lost Season 5 begins January 21st. This leaves roughly five days to stock up on DHARMA Initiative food and drink for the three-hour premiere (a one-hour clip show followed by two one-hour episodes). Be prepared. In case you have trouble scheduling a Hanso Foundation supply drop you […]

Macworld ’09…

Thursday, January 15th, 2009 by calixton

…last Thursday. Macworld Expo was last week, and last week was Apple’s final appearance at the Expo. Quite a bit has been written up about why Apple decided to bow out of the annual January event—the simple answers seem to be: Apple doesn’t need Macworld to generate “buzz” about its products—Apple products make their own […]

Another last pic…

Friday, January 9th, 2009 by calixton

…of the last of the 2008 pics. It’s a week into the new year, but I’ve only now finished sorting through the trailing edge of last year’s crop of digital photos, namely a slew of December pix from San Diego. I’ve finally posted the complete, edited set (is that an oxymoron?) online at 150 San […]
