Damon Lindelof’s Armageddoner

Lost creator Damon Lindelof put together a treatment for a movie about the BP oils spill and how to stop it.

But if... dammit, IF... someone were to go up there and detonate a calibrated warhead on that damn thing, its trajectory could be altered. Altered so specifically that it could be made to hit a very specific target...A target on the floor of the Gulf of Mexico. It can plug that leak...Bay's in. He loves the "James Cameron fucking environmental message bullshit" of it...Willis wants to do it, even though he seems to have forgotten he died in the first one. If we want him, easy enough to say he's a twin brother or do some time travel thingamajob once they get into space.

815 Sentences About Lost

Lost is ending this year and I've stuck with it through the entire series - from the exciting beginning to the rudderless middle and finally the rejuvenated last season and a half. I figured one way to celebrate this would be to take on an overly ambitious project. If you watch Lost, you'll know numbers play a big role. I'm going to find 108 people to write 815 Sentences About Lost.

To help with this project, I got Scott designed a great looking home for the project even designing some custom Lost buttons for use on Tumblr.

If you'd like to submit something please click here (submissions should be 7-8 sentences each and include a 1-2 sentence bio about you).

I'm pretty happy with how it's going so far. You should check it out.

Everything Sawyer Said Season 5

Here's sawyerEverything Sawyer Said from Season 5 of Lost. When I started watching this season again, I was surprised by how big of a role Sawyer had this year. In fact he had about 1/3 more lines than Locke, who seemed to be at least as big a character. Surprisingly, there were 3 episodes in which Sawyer didn't appear. He had about 6K words, which point of reference, Don Draper usually comes in around 9K-10K.

If you like this, you might like Everything Hurley Said, Everything Locke Said, Everything Don Draper Said or Everything Tracy Jordan Said. As always, these are submitted without context, so it might not be your thing. It's a big internet out there, though, you'll find something.

Episode 1
"Hell was that?"
"Where's the freighter?"
"Uh uh, no way. A minute ago there was just coffin black smoke. Now there's just nothing?"
"It was heading for that boat."
"Just calm down, there's no need to panic, alright, we'll just go back to camp, figure this…"
"What the hell are you talking about?"
"What do you mean the camps not gone? Who the hell are you anyway?"
"You mean the hatch? The one we blew up?"
"Before what happens again. And why is our camp gone?"
"I told you. We were running out of gas. I wanted to make sure she…I wanted to make sure they got back to the boat. It don't matter now, does it?"
"First things first. Give me your shirt."
"How we call a time out so you can tell us what the hell's going on?"
"Trust you? I don't know you."
"Shut it, Ginger, or you're getting one, too. Now talk."
"Not everyone. Locke."
"So when are we now, Wiz Kid?"
"It was. Blown up, just like we left it."
"You saying our camp is back on the beach again?"
"Good, I'm going back."
"More pointless than staring at a hole in the ground?"
"Yeah, well, what if it ain't? Hell, what if the helicopter hasn't even taken off yet?"
"Who says?"
"Why not?"
"How do you know so much about this, Danny Boy?"
"So how can we stop it?"
"Then who can?"
"Son of a… bitch."
"Backdoor. I'm getting some supplies."
"The sky can flash all it wants, but I ain't starting over, Dilbert. I ain't rubbing 2 sticks together to start a fire and I ain't hunting damn boar. There's Dharma food, beer, and clothing in there. And I'm getting Desmond to let me in one way or another."
"Yeah, why not?"
"This would all be fascinating if I was listening to you."
"I don't care whose in there."
"Open the damn door."
"Sure it will."
"You'll open up. It's the ghost of Christmas future."
"Open the damn door. Open the door."
"Open up, I know you can hear me."
"Everybody that I care about just blue up on your damn boat. I know what I can't change."

Everything Hurley Said Season 5

Here's hurleyEverything Hurley Said from Season 5 of Lost. Originally, Hurley's character seemed to be only for comic relief, but by Season 5, he's definitely become a solid member of the cast, and a big part of the story. There were 3 episodes he wasn't in at all, and I left those in so you could follow along if you wanted. If you like this, you might like Everything Sawyer Said, Everything Locke Said, Everything Don Draper Said or Everything Tracy Jordan Said. As always, these are submitted without context, so it might not be your thing, but if you want to get a good idea of Hurley's character, I'd start here.

Episode 1
"Here she comes, right now."
"Awesome. You want a fry?"
"You know maybe if you ate more comfort food, you wouldn't have to go around shooting people."
"So that you popped outside Santa Rosa, who was he?"
"You think he was going to kill me?"
"You mean Locke?"
"I need a cool code name."
"So when did you become so paranoid?"
"Oh, yeah? Paranoid like what? What kind of things?"
"Wait, he's on our side now?"
"Sayid! Woah. You OK? Dude, dude. Oh, man. I thought this was supposed to be a safe house. We never should have left that island."

Real Time Synchronized Lost Video

This starts about 7 minutes before the plane crash of Oceanic Air Flight 815 and is really well done. I can't imagine the time that went into putting this together, but I admire it and can relate. Good stuff starts at 6:55. Enjoy!

(By the way, I end up writing about Lost a lot here. I don't love love LOVE the show, and don't think it's in the class of MadMenTheWireDeadwood30Rock. It's maybe closer to TheSopranosBreakingBad. That said, the creative stuff that comes from the fans of Lost really is impressive.)

Lost Season 5 Finale Post and Thoughts

Has there ever been a show more inconsistent than Lost? Season 1 and 2 were bonkers amazing. Season 3 was uneven tilted towards bad. Season 4 was awful before the writers strike and OK afterward, culminating in one of the better season finales of all time. (Though it was not "a moment without equal in TV history" as Rolling Stone called it in this article about the end of Lost. More on this here.)

Lost Season 5 has been pretty even all the way through with several big reveals that open more questions than they answer. The article above discusses this strategy and the creators' relief at finally being able to let cats out of the bag now that they have a finite amount of time to tell the story. I tend to watch Lost with a bemused understanding that the show will do whatever it wants, and that's OK as long as they do it interestingly. I also don't get sad when characters die because when you're talking time travel, anything can happen at any time and Daniel Faraday might walk through that door. Mr. Ecko might walk through that door. The blond lady that loved Hurley? She could walk through that door.

So do you think they're going to answer all of our questions in a satisfying way? What are the top questions you'd like to get answered tonight and next questions? Add them to the comments and let's have a discussion.

I'd like to know about Hurly's lady love and why she was a patient in the hospital. Some other things I want to happen next year: The jewel thieves who were buried alive show up again and have an impact. (That was the one time '24' got crazy and tested the 'X-Files' theory of non-linear storytelling, glad that got axed.) Also, earlier in the year when they were flashing through time to different periods in the Island's history, I REALLY wanted them to flash to a time when the island was all developed and golf coursed out. That would have been amazing.

Finally, even though this is made-up conjecture, you heard it here first, the founder of Taza Chocolate is Richard Alpert. See for yourself.
