Oh, thebookpolice - your comment on the last thread about Mr. Friendly reminded me of something. My husband and I were watching The Adventure of Brisco County Jr on DVD the other day (also produced by Carlton Cuse) and one of the bad guys was played by Mr. Friendly! He looked a lot younger, and he had a handlebar mustache. :)

speaking of Lost actor sightings, I've been watching the episodes of Dead Like Me that SciFi has been airing every week, and this week's episode had "Michael" in it--he was a Yoga instructor who died by breaking his neck while demonstrating one of the positions. Then when his soul was about to leave to go to a better place, he put his hands together, bowed, and said "Namaste" before he left... how crazy is that?!?

If you are Jewish and are annoyed that the podcast is scheduled for Rosh Hashannah, you may wish to e-mail your comments to TPTB. I understand things happen on typical Friday nights and Saturdays, but I consider it a slap in the face to both religious and non-religious Jews to schedule this for one of our holiest days of the year.

I e-mailed conspiraspiesunite@hotmail.com (DJ Dan's e-mail) and Speaker815@gmail.com to register my complaint.

OK, vent mode off . . .

Yeah, it was totally weird... I always go nuts when I see people from other shows I watch religiously in a different show/movie (my husband hates it...), and this episode was full of those--if you're a fan of science fiction shows, you'll recognize lots of people... Of course there was Michael, and then there were actors from the 4400, the Dead Zone, and Firefly--all in this one episode! It was quite exhausting! ;-)

GFD613:
oh dear you WERE serious, weren't you.

Is it really THAT much of an issue? Does this ARG means so much to you that it actually causes internal conflict when compared to the holiest day of your year? Surely I would have thought self-examination and repentance was much more important than listening to DJ Dan rant on about nothing for 90 minutes.

But as it's only 90 minutes AND first thing in the morning, why not listen to it and repent afterwards?

And why the hell are you complaining to DJ Dan? This is only a game after all so why not call ABC central headquarters????

And why would non-religious Jews have an issue? Surely if they're non-religious it measn they are non-practicing hence not going to be involved with customs of that day.

Of course "Day of Judgment" seems rather apt actually given what's been going on...



Sorry to the rest of the gang here if this seems insensitive of me but it REALLY annoys me when people cry foul for religious reasons when the slightest thing doesn't go their way.

I could moan that Rachel Blake only appeared at ComicCon so ABC are discriminating against non-Americans, but I would be laughed out of the building. But if somebody complains for religious reasons "oh it's our holy day" then the whole world has to stop.

Denying the holocaust occured is Anti-semitic, running a podcast for a game on a Jewish holy day doesn't even come close. I'm sure there's more Jews pissed off that you pulled the Anti-semitic card for this than there are who can't eat Apollo Bars.

Rant over and I apologise to anybody I offended. Now let's get back to the game...

There's plenty in this game to complain about PERIOD.

It all feels like it did when this game began. A lot of us with the show (other forums like E!Online as well) were complaining about the air dates, getting really pissy about spoilers, just plain bitchy. So much was going on that people took out their frustration on comment/message boards (and chats).

THIS TIME, season premieres are gearing up, school has begun, and more religious rather than national holidays are occuring. Add onto that the pressure of this ARG coming to an end (prematurely upset that they'll let us down)... and that's one cluster**** of pissyness.

It's understandably, but I'd agree with THEBOOKPOLICE in that this isn't exactly the forum for that debate and MORE IMPORTANTLY, those conversations need to be handled with more respect than the usual internet-flaming.

Gotta go to a meeting. (btw, I'm PSYCHED that I actually get to listen in live to this DJ DAN podcast since I missed the last one)

a special thanks to Mrs. and Mr. O. My jeep would not start after we left. it seems i left my lights on the whole time we were at snuffers and the theatre, even though it was broad daylight when i got there... still havent figure out how that happened. i'm thinking Mittelwerk had something to do with it. But the O's and some random lawyer in the parking lot helped me get it started. unfortunately it was dead again this morning and i spent half the day getting the battery replaced (after these other 2 guys who didn't speak english helped me get it started). yay, fun....lol

even so, the Dallas event was great fun, only because meeting everyone was such a special treat. i look forward to all of us getting together again.

Okay, I have to admit, I've been putting off doing the DJ Dan stuff just because of the daunting task of cutting up two hours of material.

That I've been distracted by IRC (which is a compliment to those I talk to there, because that means your interesting!), uh, making random parody websites, playing Urban Dead (free online zombie thing) and generally procrastinating.

However I am now on it. The johnny remix I will do first because it should be easy. There is a LOT of DJ Dan talking to consider for the remix. I may have to just chop it into big chunks and make minor tweaks (which is pretty much what I did with the first DJ Dan track anyway, and people loved that).

It's actually the DJ Dan one that is the biggest problem. He talked A LOT, and he said a lot of crazy/funny things. That's the problem with Javi he talks a lot and is already very funny. It's a challenge to make him funnier. Then there is the various phone ins, I mean who do I include/exclude. Obviously I have to put my own shout outs in there. Would't be right without them. Lol.

Then the hardest thing of all, picking the music. I obviously want something I can be creative with so not a straight track sample, maybe one I can modify like with the Gonk (the music I used in the first track - I added a lot to that to make it my own). It's all hard. Plus I wanted to do not one, not two but FOUR remixes from that. Although it makes sense to put the Ninja and Speaker ones off as hopefully they'll phone into the new podcast and double my content (although got loads of Speaker audio thansk to his reader mail).

Anyway enough excuses. I have a deadline now!

Does everyone agree with the frg order on Lostpedia.com? To me, it seems like the video is still missing more than just 1 piece. Maybe it is just the way the he.com player plays the clips, but I have watched it several times and still walk away thinking we are missing more pieces.

I didn't agree with the order until yesterday when somebody moved a few frag around!! With only one clip left the Lostpedia one seems the most plausible!!! Glyph 70 will make the difference. If it happens to be a mittlewerk clip then Lostpedia is way off

9/07/2006 05:45:00 PM  
Blogger Dt7 said...

@diggitydirge

Timdorr's latest arrangement on Youtube seems to make sense, and I think it's using the Lostpedia sequence. I do think the way the HE player skips a little at the end of each clip can make it seem as though there are more missing fragments; so Timdorr's smooth run through of it is much easier to work from.

Although, even on his version, I think the sequence is either missing two clips, or is arranged incorrectly. The "Someone is going to hel-" line still doesn't make much sense.

diggity - You're probably right. Multiple segments are choppy. Rachel, unfortunately, likely couldn't locate the entire video. They've been incomplete all though Season 2, and those edits are probably very old, if not due completely to age.

Perhaps someone could give Mr. Dan a few tips to make this live show a little more professional. Some tips I'd add, Fix the volume thing between Dan and the callers. My wife was so peeved at me while she was sleeping because I'd turn it up to hear a caller and then BOOM THIS IS DAN at 100 db. She wasn't happy. Which trails onto my other tip, make it feasible for EVERYONE to listen to it, not at 3am EST. Once again, there is more people playing along then just CA.

That's possible but it just doesn't sound/look right to me. Mittelwerk's head moves quite a bit between those clips... it also looks like Rachel moves the camera to the left, but then ends up back in the same position without going right again. It looks consistent enough but doesn't make sense.

diggitydirge:

The difficulty is that the DHARMA portion is edited and produced in the same way as the other orientation films we've seen, i.e. 30-year old damaged projector film. To that end there are a lot of jumps and holes in it which will be intentional. It does however make piecing our fragments difficult. For example it took me a long time to match 5be and ing93a11ro86 because of a huge chunk intentionally missing from the video, however the adjoining frames match up so this is a correct pairing. The same can be said for rgmr and 56lhzjdcl7a4.

Similarly it was only recently I paired 7ti and 3zgt because of a piece missing from the video. It's only with the recent Mittelwerk fragments needing space have I paired these two up. It flows in terms of information but it seems too rough a jump.

I've never referenced Lostpedia to build my timeline as I'm (amongst other things) a professional video editor so I'm used to matching frames and splicing.

I personally have a gap between pfkab5qxk and flho6cum181 because not even bad acting can justify the half sentence and incorrect speech inflections you get if you pair them up.

I guess we'll just have to see what #70.

Belly - We do actually say "Dude". But not as much as Americans. We also use "man". More UK like expressions though would be "Geeze" and "Boss". I've never heard anyone say "Gov'na". Some people call all women "Love" (I think the same ones that call men "Boss"). Sometimes people get called "Mush" or "Geezer" (which Geeze is short for).

Personally I have been known to say Dude and Man. I blame that on Wyld Stallions. Excellent!

FYI, Speaking of the Milgram Experiment (way back when), I remember seeing William Shatner in a PBS movie (the b/w TV days)about that experiment, and it was pretty darned creepy. With screeming "subject" and all. Over the years I have tried to find a video of that, or even just the title, to no avail. IMDB didn't reveal anything familiar, and I can't even remember if it was a pre- or post-Kirk Shatner. I did recognize him in it at the time, but that may just have been because of his "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" fame. I know that probably not too many Tee-lekkers are old enough like me to have seen it when it aired, but are there any film-freaks out there that would know of it? Not important, and off-topic, just askin'. :-)

I have acquired Apollo bars! Yay!

Becky and I went to the Acura event at the ESPN Zone in DC. There was a nice lady with a zillion Apollos, handing them out one at a time. A guy who didn't know what he had got a Golden Oracle.

The best part was meeting TLE folk. We met Dazzedelf (Don) and his friend, Ron, KyleLane, LostBoy16, and Karen. We sat at the bar and talked LOST. It was great talking to people who understand what you're talking about. There was free food and beverages and when we left they gave us bags of goodies, which included Apollo bars. And the staff there were very nice.

We didn't win a car or anything but Becky and I got back in the Apollo Bar line and each got another. The lady still had a zillion of them but was sticking strictly to the one per person rule.

All in all, it was a lovely outing. I'm really glad I went. And we have extra bars for the trade!

just a couple of theory things:

anyone ever think that hanso looking out the window in the beginning of the video is when they took the picture that is on the hanso website and in the show? he IS looking out the window of an office building, wearing what seems to be a similar suit. the video quality is even similar to the picture quality.

and second, has anyone discussed what the actual glyph symbols mean? are these just scribbles arbitrarily thrown out for aesthetic value, or do they mean something?

Hey all... lurker here.

I just felt like I had to but my 2 cents in regarding dan's podcast on rosh hashana. personally, I am just annoyed. I am not saying that the world should stop because it is a jewish holiday. And for me there is no question that going to synagogue and spending time with family trumps listening to a live dj dan (podcast on the east coast starts at 11 am -- just in time for services to start).

I am annoyed because I like being on top of the clues/ events as they happen, and I will miss this one. :( I am sure there are others out there who probably feel the same. That being said, I think Shakey should be a little more sensitive in his/her flaming of those who might feel excluded.

thebookpolice - Ish. (That *so* should be in the dictionary). I've never heard anyone string whole sentances together in cockney rythming slang except on random day time tv shows where they are talking about it likes it's this quant little fun thing. People do use elements of it. For instance it's not unheard of for someone to say they are "cream crackered". It should be mentioned of course that as it is slang from a very specific part of london and I don't live and never have lived in that part of london (or any part of london for that matter) I probably don't observe the bulk of it's use. I guess in a way, it was a verbal equivelent to hacker speak, except it's harder to learn so 11 year olds can't use it and it focuses on words rather then letters.

I'm far from an expert on it (and that is pretty much most people in England).

Capcom - I think that's just crazy Irish people :) But to be honest if you replaced Desmonds "Hello Brotha" with "Safe Geeze" it probably would have turned Lost into a comedy. Lol. But if they were going to do that they should have let Micheal do his "from the hood" speak and let Charlie have a broad yorkshire accent. That would have been hilarious. "Aye up luv", "Eee By Gum, I'll blacken thee eyes for thee in a minute!".

Kentucky = unlucky
russ = bad mood

hang about = wait a second (out of order)

Hi Guys

Anyone there -

Love the stuff about Cockney Slang, My father in law is a cockney but dosn't really use much slang. Where as myself being half Scots and half English use itquite a lot.

For example:

I don't have a scooby (scooby doo =Clue)
Your having a giraffe (laugh)
Your telling me porkies (pork pie =Lie)

Of course it's constantly evolving Having a couple of Britanys means going for a beer and unfortunatley for you guys in the Northern US I have years Americans referred to as sceptics (Sceptic Tank - Yank!)

With regards to 9/11 - this is a sensitive issue and I agree this is not the forumn for heated debate - Like wise I think you have to be careful with religion. I'm pretty open minded as I'm Pagan and my wife's Catholic but it can be a pretty sensitive issue. I am sure we have a whole range of beliefs (and lack of here) and I would hate to see this great community becomming a flame fest.

Personally whatever your faith or lack thereof - I don't care - you're all a great bunch of guys and gals...

Regarding the comments on Cockney rhyming slang - I do use it from time to time. My dad and his family came from the East End of London and it was quite common place. One that I always use is a syrup (syrup & fig - wig) but there others too. Unfortunately, it is probably a dying language.

Respect to that woman!

Seriously though I don't want to see this great community sink to the flaming depths like other *cough ITE cough* forums do. My point was, however harshly it was made, is that there's a difference between expressing annoyance that having dedicated a lot of time to this game a major fun event falls on an important day and screaming conspiracy and anti-semiticism based on nothing more than coincidence.

It's people like that which piss me off immensely and, from my experience, crying anti-semitic foul just because you eat a bacon sandwich within 10 feet of a Jew (and yes I have seen it) stops people listening and caring when something truly anti-semitic kicks off.

So, apologies to those who took offence at the tone and manner in which I phrased my statement.

Hi Superdify

I think your right - it's the problem with globalisation - supposedly the fastest growing accent among teens in the US and UK is Australian, the Aussie habit of raising the pitch at the end of a sentance making everything sound like a question is becomming very common place.

Dark Angel - the Aussie accent is very close to a London one anyway, as it originated from us. Try speaking with a cockney accent but scrunch your eyes up as if there's a lot of sun - then you get an Aussie accent - seriously!! So it's not surprising. There is also the new Estuary accent which is supposedly fast gowing as well.

I'm sorry, but I speak good old RP!!

You're a Pagan married to a Catholic and she hasn't tried to set you on fire???

Luckily not, she actually studied medieval witchcraft at Uni though as part of her history degree and so she'd have to correct you - It would be a good hanging here in England

Hi Gavin

You mean that you don't me haerties Aargh!

Seriously I love Cornwall and I must admit I found most people down in Cornwall seem to have quite a neutral accent.

Yes, Cornwall's full of foreigners now (and by foreigners I mean English people) so most people's accent is quite watered down now, but if you go out to some of the small villages its very strong, and quite funny to listen to.

When I was last in Cornwall it seemed to be full of Aussies!

My sister moved down to cornwall from Berkshire - so she's gone from farmer to Pirate!

I guess the accent is all the same - lots of ooos and aaars!

ha ha - Think the berkshire accent is very posh actually! I often get picked up for saying Grars (grass), Carstle (castle), Barth (bath), Alllmond (almond) and scowne (scone). Mind you, I'm at the posh end of Berks! My sis says awlryt (alright (Imagine a pirate saying it))

dark angel - the habit of going up at the end of sentences has a name, it's called AQI, the Australian Question Intonation. My sister used to do it and it drove me up the wall.

Englandand lost - Berkshire? farmers?? my g/f lives in (Royal) Berkshire and I got the feeling it is the poshest place in the whole universe. It's even got the most expensive house in the UK, £80m. apparently Bill Gates has his eye on it...

I'm with you Boyo81 - it is posh, that was my point!

My girlfriend is from one of the small villages around Berkshire and is VERY well spoken! I'm from all over but have lived in this town for 15 years, so have picked up the "posh speak". Do get laughed at when I go to Bristol and brighton - "poshy"!!!

I have a problem with Almond my wife takes the piss as I say Armond - It's the remenants of my Dorset accent I think..

Yet again the American's are away and us Brits end up talking about English counties!

think yourself lucky. I'm welsh, raised near birmingham, uni in london (where i was called northern monkey) worked in leeds (where i was called soft southern fairy) and now have the worst accent in the whole of history. I sound like an american trying to do an australian accent, like that woman hurley goes to see. (See, bringing it back neatly to lost - not all about accents)

Berkshire must be full of farmers, after all those posh people need some peasants to run their country estates :)

Sound's like my Cousins - half-German, half- English, borm in Switzerland, then spent a time in Chicago before moving to Australia.

So back to Lost - are you guys watching on Channel 4 or did you like me get it straight from the US?

just realised, channel 4 hasn't actually shown all of the second series yet have they? Are there actually people left who haven't seen it??

This Path to 9/11 thing will premiere on the BBC, not on ABC. I bet ABC are a bit peeved.

I got it from the US, but I am watching it again on E4 (just not so religiously as I would have done without having already seen it!)

ha ha ha - I probably do know what happens, just not all the ins and outs. Even with spoiler warnings, it's impossible not to catch on. For example, I knew that Ana Lucia and Libby were killed, but not that Michael did it.
