If some of the bloggers around here are hungry for a good fantasy story about redemption, love, addictions, anger, control, relationships, etc... this is an excellent example of a character driven, spiritual story. The name of the movie is 'Ink', it's a low budget indie movie that has some simple but strange visual effects, a thought provoking concept and a satisfying ending. Check it out on Hulu sometime when you are missing Lost.

Reading over the articles, the fallout since the Finale, I'm seeing a strange, disturbing trend. Let me start out by saying I wasn't impressed with the finale or season 6 as a whole. Someone on the writing staff was staying up all night to watch Touched by an Angel. What started out as a sci-fi fantasy story morphed into a strange, cultish religious story. I'm a firm believer that creative types should stick with what they know or what they are good at. Lindeloff and Cuse were good at writing back-story, creating a mythology. There were many good ideas but it seemed like they would start 4 other topics before resolving the first half dozen. I think this is where the loose ends began to accumulate. Instead of following through with an idea …Read more >
I found this poem today, among my computer files. I wrote it when I was in my teens. Thought it was fitting after the finale.
Destiny will not repay the cost
Of hours spent, forever lost
Drifting in an endless realm
A nightmare world in which we delve
In quest of answers that convey
Something more than shades of gray
Upon the tide, they washed away
The broader shores of bygone days
Held therein that tides great hand
A precious, single grain of sand
Fallen from times' glad glass of hours
Lost in flight its' timeless powers
Lit on shore, it silent lay
An unfound piece of other days
Wiser now, we’ve come to see
Many things aren’t what they seem.

I fear at this point the story that will require another season to 'explain' and tie up loose ends. Perhaps the finale will include a bad video of Pierre Chang 'explaining' what happened with some vague scientific detail. It would need to be a really long video.
Or, for those who think Lost is actually a game being played, perhaps everyone dies in the last 15 minutes, no one is left to play the game. Long boats come cruising up to the beach with large gangs of men wearing hazmat suits. They begin spraying stuff from pressurized canisters while another boat full of men begin unloading supplies and radio equipment. Talk is heard over the radios: "We're gonna need several hundred feet of lumber to fix this mess at the Barracks. Where did the b…Read more >
While looking over some articles on Lostpedia, I found the image of 'The Old Woman', a rock formation located in Joshua Tree National Park. Supposedly that picture, hanging on a wall of the Swan Station, contained a clue to the overall mystery of Lost. I looked up the park and got some information on other rock formations in the area. After reading a short way down the list of Rock Names, I encountered a name that sounded familiar, then another, and another. Check this out! It's a list of familiar sounding names taken straight from the rock formations and climbing routes in the park.

- Geronimo- Musician Geronimo Jackson
- Double Cross - everyone seems to be on o…
