Clue #72 - Lost Experience Clues Podcast Episode 9, Rachel Blake Italy Post 06, The Call & The Commercial

We are BACK after being SHUTDOWN by Blogger! There is definitely something fishy about The Lost Experience Clues, Inside the Experience AND Lostpedia all going down at the same time! Is it just a coincidence, or is someone trying to silence us?

Podcast 9 Episode: We got episode 9 of our famous podcast coming in loud and unclear! We talk theories, and delve into our "Plot and Payoff Predictions" to spice up an otherwise slow couple of days. It's pretty long again, so be patient...

Click HERE to launch iTunes, find our podcast, and subscribe.
Click HERE if you'd rather just listen in your browser or right-click and save the file.
Thanks again to MrTimmyC for hosting and faster downloads!

Rachel Blake - Italy Post 06: Rachel updated her site today and received a phone call from non other than Gidget Girl. Click here and use "RBlake" as the id and "FalseDegree" as the password. Or click here to listen without having to use the id or password.

The Call: Yesterday, Speaker mentioned in his comments that he received a phone call instructing him to watch tonight's re-runs of LOST and today we can confirm what he says because we have also received a phone call! Someone with a heavy accent called in and told us that we definitely need to watch tonight, but didn't specify which episode. When we asked who he was, there was only a click... very mysterious. Luckily, we recorded the conversation and will try to have it on next week's podcast! :)

The Commercial: During the U.S. re-airing of "The 23rd Psalm", the Hanso Foundation ran an advertisement (YouTube link thanks to LHorse007) featuring Thomas Mittlewerk in which he said, "Spirited Debate. It is the cornerstone of our philosophy here at the Hanso Foundation We are reaching out to a better tomorow and that means listening to our critics. Even those who would lob unfounded claims from the darkness. We are confident in our mission. That is why we invite you, talk about us discuss our acomplishments and our continued progress. We are here for you. Thank you and namaste."

I just finished listening to the podcast wanted to throw this out. I like the DeGroote theory Admin proposed on the podcast (better than the one Admin proposed in the comments beforehand :p ) and wanted to say that would make sense why the Hanso Foundation is leaving her alone for now. They want her to find the island, to follow them there or something of that nature because of who she is a decendant of. They want her for their use.

Forget Stopping Hanso...Stop Disney!! I am about to bust a blog on Eisner's Arse.

http://www.variety.com/VR1117946640.html
The Mouse House will announce within the next 10 days that it's cutting back on the number of films it makes to around eight per year -- it currently releases around 18 -- and will substantially reduce its workforce. All movies will be Disney-branded, meaning companies like Touchstone could be vastly diminished.

Please watch our commercials so we can hire more Human Services Representatives to lay off the mousekateers

Hi Everyone-
I don't pretend to have any of the technical expertise you all do...but I did read all 800 comments in the last blog...so I had a few observations. This is my first post here (I think!) Hopefully they aren't too primitive to offer!

(1) Melissa_lossa and jdgdtt mentioned the healing properties of the island... we know that Peter Thompson was cured, Rose was cured, Alvar has disappeared (with a blood disease?) and Mittlewerk is sick... could Alvar be on the island? and could Mittlewerk be searching for the island for its healing properties and the blood transfusions just buying him the time to do so?

(2) superdifey and others (sorry, I didn't write down the original "finder" kinetic???) have discussed the heretic connection on the hansoexposed site.... Let your Compass guide you asks "Do you believe?" it used to ask "Are you one of the good ones?" Just interesting that the believer link is there.

(3) The monday morning quarter back and the Vikings references... a little hoakie, but could we be looking at the QB's name as a password? Doubtful, but weird enough to mention....

(4) Could the username on the hansoexposed site ....be GidgetGirl??? maybe it's not a Rachel thing at all?

Thanks for listening.... hope it wasn't too elementary for observations...

I completely understand, and it is your choice to watch, as it is my choice not to watch. No bad feelings here, but I detest this marketing direction ABC is taking. And I shudder at any support given to Disney in this marketing campaign. Because if Disney-ABC sees a gain in revenue, and viewer acceptance of this type marketing, you can bet all ya got, they (the networks) will repeat this marketing approach.

Yes the 23rd Psalm was definitely one of the episodes that they mentioned that we may have seen the monster but did not realize/recognize it...but what that means I don't know. And whether it will have any impact on the game I don't think so...but now that you've mentioned it, I think I will definitely record the show tonite.

bigdog --

***** Spoiler *****


In Psalm 23, there is no ambiguity about Eko seeing the Monster. The references of the writer to seeing the Monster when we didn't know it has been interpreted as perhaps Kate's horse, and the other individuals who have thought they were hallucinating in seeing people from their past (e.g., Jack seeing his father in season 1, etc.)

No one knows for sure, though. However, ironically, the one time we unambiguously do see the monster is in Psalm 23...

im betting it will be a anti-hanso commercial. it will probably be like one of those attack ad commercials for politicians. and at the bottom in black and white it will say

for more information, visit
hansoexposed.com

what will be really cool is if they have those black and white pictures of thompson, mcintyre and mittlewekr, and have some voiceover talking about all the bad stuff they've been doing.

if we're really lucky, it will lead to another hanso press release.

colduphere: That's possible, but it probably wouldn't be anything directly related to the game at hand...because that would take quite a bit of forethought. It did occur to me, however, that they may have lots of ARG information included in the release of Season 2 on DVD. Why? It's title is: "Lost Season 2: Extended Experience"

Hey Manny - you've been pretty quiet lately.

I was wondering - did you take all your own photos on your flickr account? Some of them are quite lovely.

Do you think Rachel is Persephone, despite her protestations that she is?

Are you slammed with IMs every time you log on?

And the old fall-back: how's the weather in Lost Angeles? It's cold and crappy here :)

Yours in conversation,

To make an oblique approach to something that might be considered a kind of cheating: does anyone remember what the locations Rachel mentioned in the deleted tacosalad blog were? It showed up alongside the first video and was covered here in Clue #55. I can remember Paris being mentioned in a post at the top, but nothing other than that. Can anyone remember if there were any locations there that Rachel hasn't been to yet? Could it be that my one true love Rachel Blake may be reaching the end of her European trip, one way or another?

ypinelkq: Dutch word for the experience of remembering that one has forgotten something without remembering what it is that has been forgotten. Thought to have arisen in Amsterdam's red-light district sometime in the last century, but this remains uncertain due to the term's limited popularity: it seems that many who would make use of the concept of ypinelkq are often unable to remember the precise term for it. This peculiar phenomenon has given rise to the somewhat more current term "friesilchyzn," employed to express the experience of knowing that there is a term to describe one's current state that one is currently unable to recall.

Hey yawwwwl - I was thinking about those MN Vikings references. Does anyone remember way way back on the original Oceanic site, some kind of link to NFL draft choices from 2007-2012? I totally forgot about this until now, and I can't remember how I got to it, but it definately was Lost related. I remember because it was so out of the blue that noone on the boards would talk about it.

Also, I don't know how they could possible make this work, but a hack broadcast from Rachel in the middle of Revelations would rrrrrock. Cheers

I have been reading a bit on the numbers forum today and was intrigued that in discussion of tacosalad there there was a mention of a Madrid post. I went to the tacosalad blog a few times when it was up and there were only ever the four locations Rachel has been to (or on her way to), so I don't know what is up with that. Noone there seems to have archived it either. I can't recall what order they appeared in but I have a feeling they were jumbled... I think Copehagen was second (ie third from the top). I remember the dates were all the same and no pictures.

Anyway... I fully expected Rachel to be in all of Act II and that it would be 48 days long. If she's going to Paris now... I find it hard to believe she will remain there for the rest of Act II. A few scenarios: Act II is not 48 days long; Rachel has more destinations ahead of her but they only had 4 on tacosalad; Rachel has more destinations ahead of her but she isn't going to mention them on her cover blog; Rachel is going to stop her blog altogether; Rachel will not be around for all of Act II...

And I few observations I forgot to post earlier. In the phone conversation with gidgetgirl Rachel seems to indicate that "Rachel Blake" is her real name. Also, with the segment of the original phone messages to Hugh's voicemail the first message sounds like the voice of Mittlewerks from Rachel's TWM/PT/mystery woman audio recording, but it sounds to me like he says "Hugh, Thomas..." If the voice is Mittlewerks, why is he refering to himself???

I can only hope that the next blog location is "Jack's Apartment." I'll work on my melodramatic yelling and meaningful pausing just in case...Although I guess it could mean that the tacosalad blog was just the first set of locations and that another is coming to lead us to the third act.

Hi Guys & (Gidget)Girls

Just a quick post for all you "Who is GG" and the "R /= P" theorists out there...

While looking for matches to the GidgetGirl audio I listened to the original Hanso Foundation Verizon Voicemail messages, and the voice of GG is a pretty good match to Alvar Hanso's PA - another possibility to consider, although my money is still on it being the voice of the girl with Hugh in RBs pics...

... and while were on the subject of RB - the voice identifying herself as Persephone on the Hanso Phone Line, which breaks through during the Postal Address message and the Alvar Hanso extension, is the voice of RB - no doubt... especially after cleaning up the audio in SoundForge.

LostLinks still has the Voicemail Recordings in their archive - http://www.lostlinks.net/voicemail.htm

See what you think...

The twelve steps to follow as part of TLEA:

1. I admit I am powerless over The Lost Eperience.
2. I have come to believe that a Power (Hanson Foundation?) greater than I could restore my sanity.
3. I have made a decision to turn my life over to Rachel Blake.
4. I have made a moral inventory of the use of office technology to follow TLE.
5. I have admitted to my wife that I am addicted.
6. I have admitted to my coworkers the exact nature of my wrongdoings (got caught f-5ing it)
7. I have humbly asked Speaker to reveal more clues daily.
8. I have made a list of all those on the TLEC blog, and am willing to make amends.
9. I apologize to all on the TLEC blog for lurking for so long.
10. I continue to take a personal inventory of and promptly admit when I cannot stop refreshing.
11. I have sought meditation to improve my conscious contact with Alvar Hanson.
12. Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, I have carried the message to other addicts.
