The Lost Experience Podcast Finale Part 3

A few of our faithful commenters have compiled a list of some of the most memorable moments from our time spent on this blog over the summer. THIS COMPILATION is a real keepsake for anyone familiar with TLEC (right-click, save-as to download). In addition to saving these memorable moments, you'll want to click HERE for Part 3 of our Podcast Finale (Timmy's mirror HERE) to hear Twinkle, Maven, FastenYourSeatbelts, and RyanDrumz talk to David & William about 8 Random Memories from each month of the Experience.

Finally, if you've ever wondered what it's like "behind the scenes" of a Lost Experience podcast, check out this video of David & William...

Something like thisPODCASTING TUTORIAL might help. I had someone walk me through it step by step. Record, upload to a server (I use archive.org & ourmedia.org - both free), post to a blog (or anything with an RSS feed), subscribe to a feed publishing service (I use feedburner.com), register with itunes and tell them where your feed is coming from. Good luck!

I was busy typing this in the old thread when this one went up, so copying it over here too-

Hey everybody!
First- Admin VERY nice job on the video. So, Maven and I teared up- anyone else- come on you know you're out there- admit it! Will listen to the podcast (sorry Apple) later.

Thrasher- exactly how many different avatars DID you have this summer? LOL And BTW, thanks for the shout out in the DJLena parody.

Dennis- that is so funny about the "creepy kids" pics on the WIA site! You have to admit, they were a little creepy.

Can't believe I was #27 on the comments. Wow- don't tell my hubby. It does however explain our family's frequent lack of clean clothes lately. hmmm

FYSB and everybody- Wow!! I saw the promo commercial last night, but didn't even recognize the voice - holy cow! Wonder how that will play out?

I am so pumped for season 3, I can't wait!

I think the more you comment, the more difficult your word verifications become....I used to get easy 5 letter ones, now I only get 9 letter ones with lots of q's , x's, and z's.

I think I changed 10 to 12 times, I never really counted, but I did do it a lot, my very first one was the man standing with his arms outstretched, which I kept for a long time then it just seemed to spiral out of control until I settled on the one I use now. Although I have changed it time to time when the conversation merited it, like Pirate day.

I wanted to use as many names as I could with out it seeming over stupid. And like I said in the podcast I am sure I left some names out.

Oh and I am in the top 20!!! YAY me!

Thanks to all here at TLEC, those running the show and those who post, for making such a fantastic community here. I probably wouldn't have had nearly as much fun if I hadn't found such a wonderful community here. The frequent posts, excellent podcasts, and friendly conversation really made this whole thing for me. I hope to see you all on the other side for season 3.

hello everyone, I've been lurking through these last few updates but it's time for me to say a goodbye but it's not goodbye really, I'll be at TLC. I want to thank everyone for being a part of this community. I had never participated in a blog before TLE and I have to say the experience has be GREAT (rachel font intended).

I'm still upset that I missed "talk like a pirate" day because of a stupid biospy. I don't know why they make me do that it's been established for 5 years that I have cancer. That's the day I found out that I have to go back on chemo, why I haven't posted much lately, and that's why I'll be at TLC. It's not basketball season yet and usually B-ball is what gets me through chemo well now it will be TLC.

Thanks for all your well wishes and all the fun.

I'm REALLY (rachel font intended again) excited for S3 to start!!!!!

oh, the recap epi last night was great especially with fenry narrating

TLCM: That's really big news! We'll be here for you and I bet there are others who've gone through chemo or know loved ones who have. There are a couple people in my family. Anyway, we'll be here!

About the memories compilation, Admin did the awesome pdf format. I only got him the raw material. Capcom got her name on the doc because even though she didn't have her stuff ready in time, she was working. Maybe we can post later some of the stuff she found.

Sean: You'd think so, but things were crazy back then with people switching back and forth between threads posting. Tapdawg's comment is actually the earliest comment by date. But you're right, Lostaway Bonnie is the first comment on Post #1.

Also officially - THANK YOU!!! to everyone who helped compile the memories doc, FYSB, Maven, Ryandrumz, and Scoutpost. It was a monumental idea to skim through all the old posts and comments to capture the essence of why we loved this community. The material for the document was compiled from Saturday night through Wednesday night. That's an amazing amount of data to surf in just 4 days! We had to leave sooo much out! You all ROCK for doing this with me!

Secondly, thanks for giving us so much material TLEC-ers! There's a wide variety of names quoted from in the document. If we missed your favorite moment or comment, know that we still appreciated it. And I can't wait to see what memories we'll form from TLC and SotL!

King Arthur: Old woman.
Dennis: Man.
King Arthur: Man, sorry. What knight lives in that castle over there?
Dennis: I'm 37.
King Arthur: What?
Dennis: I'm 37. I'm not old.
King Arthur: Well I can't just call you "man".
Dennis: Well you could say "Dennis".
King Arthur: I didn't know you were called Dennis.
Dennis: Well you didn't bother to find out did you?
King Arthur: I did say sorry about the "old woman", but from behind you looked...
Dennis: What I object to is you automatically treat me like an inferior.
King Arthur: Well I am king.
Dennis: Oh, king eh? Very nice. And how'd you get that, eh? By exploiting the workers. By hanging on to outdated imperialist dogma which perpetuates the economic and social differences in our society.

I just finished the first podcast... I know I put the accent in the wrong place on Namaste... :/ I always do that... and my voice...arg... but it was still a great podcast! AWESOME JOB! I enjoyed everyone's recorded messages, tho some were a little difficult to hear... my low quality earphones, along with the terrible disco music they blast on the Muzak overhead don't help much either...

Christina... great voice to open with... wow... Fenris, you're voice is so nice, mellow and soothing, the THF music in the bg was a nice effect, as well... I could have easily slipped into a coma listening to it long enough..

Maven, it's always great to hear you... Dazzedelf... lol! That was great! Thrasher, Passafist, DA and everyone else on there did a great job as well... It was just great...

Was super cool getting to hear Speaker as Speaker on the podcast... ;)

There lies in the Ocean an island which is called The Lost. In Charm and all kinds of fertility it far surpasses every other land, but it is unknown to men. Now and again it may be found by chance; but if one seeks it, it cannot be found, and therefore it is called The Lost.

OK...I found my first post...not bad only took me about 12 minutes....

My first post was on 5/08/2006 05:48:28 PM (I can't believe it's been almost 5 months!)

It was Clue #27 - the infamous Persephone SAFE-G morse code hack (and the first post to break 200 comments!)

I won't bore you with the post, it's rather long, me blabbing about morse code...

LOL! (a la Lena) @:

Funeral for the promise to not play the Growing Pains theme song again... I've never laughed at funerals as often as I have during your podcasts (...well... I've never really laughed at funerals)...

David - "You'd have to stab me in the eye to get me to talk about (eugenics) with somebody"

Mittlewerk's overly enthusiastic announcements... you just can't shut that guy up once you get him started!

Ryan's reading of FYSB's compilation of the "are you related to rachel blake" quiz

Really great way to end it all... very well done, David, William, FYSB, Ryandrumz, Twinkle, Thrasher, Maven and everyone who sent in a recorded message... it reminded me a lot of a flashback series finale of a long running television show... thank you all very much for putting so much into it... it definitely paid off.. very well done!

Didn't expect Speaker. Good get, and Hi Speaker thanx for putting up my pic with the giant Apollo Bar that WIA rejected for no reason at all. Keep up the good wotk so to speak.

David, sorry I couldn't get a message recorded. I think it's a good thing considering the time constraints you had.

I was a pretty big Monty Python fan back in the day (which was a Wednesday, if you didn't know)...

favorite scenes from holy grail:

the witch scene, "BURN HER!!!"

"you've got 2 coconuts and you're bangin' them together"

"they say they've already got one"

"alright... we'll call it a draw" - the black knight

"'what is your favorite color?'...'blue... no yellow... AAAH!!!"

"oh knights who recently said NI"

and it's more on the adult side, due to Graham Chapman's nudity, but Life of Brian is just hilarious... it follows a man who was born in the stable next to Jesus and is mistakenly assumed to be the messiah... HILARIOUS!..

Also, the dead parrot skit deserves honorable mention... I still LOL everytime I see it...

David, the other Admins, and you Regular Posters:

Many have already told you as much, but your efforts were a delight throughout TLE. I realize many of you may not recognize me, as most of my posts occurred prior to when I went to Japan in August (although I am delighted I still made the "Top 100" lol).

In any event, I always read this Blog -- from the first few weeks of the ARG through the present. I never ceased to be astonished by the wealth of intelligence and wit that permeated this site. All of you made it a wonderful and intellectually stimulating experience for me throughout TLE. I am in all of your debt. Thank you again.

Hi again all! Trying to listen to the podcast now...can't wait judging on what you all have said about it!
I didn't get to send in a recording due to technical difficulties- SO I would just like to say: despite a few complaints with the ARG itself, this summer was great fun- and like everyone has already said it is because of this community that the summer will be so memorable. Thanks to all the Admins, and to David for starting this whole baby up in the first place! I've learned how to do a lot of cool things on the computer this summer- thanks to everyone for helping me to embrace my inner geek! Looking forward to TLC- see you all there!
Hope that was 60 sec. or less- if not, then just go back and read it faster. hehe

Hey, everyone! Capcom was working on a selection of people saying goodbye that she wasn't able to get to me before I needed to send it to Admin. I have it now and since it's short I'm going to post it in the comments here. I really appreciate her searching through the last few weeks worth of comments, paying attention to all our sappy stuff. Thanks, Capcom!

Capcom's Goodbye List

Boyo81: Because at the end of the day, it seems to be the discussion and research that we all actually enjoy, not some idiot actress pretending she is all over the world, when the budget clearly only allows her to go as far as the LA city border.

Shakey: I'm just popping in to say goodbye. It's been a pleasure contributing to this community and storming our brains on what all this means, but I'm afraid, as with many of us, WIA.com was the last straw and I officially no longer care.

Jess4ua: Despite the ending of the ARG, I'm glad we had the game. I haven't done anything like this in a long time, and it was a lot of fun. And most important, I have sooo many new friends.

Peaceandnamaste: And thanks to EVERYONE that's been a part of TLEC's community, i've had such an awesome time chatting with you guys, it's been so much fun.. *sniff*.. I think I might be getting sen-tee-men-tal.. ;)

Aui: Hello people! I guess you don't remember me. I've been lurking the experience since sometime in the summer. I just want you all to know that this experience has become something i will never forget.

Maven: Wow...I think I'm shedding a tear or two watching that video! Those memories are great!

Dedjezter: You all did a great job with this blog and it without a doubt the best one out there for this game, it was always easy to follow and the people here have been simply amazing.

Ular: Big Thanx to those who worked so hard to make our summer special with the game, our great meeting place, and your many talents. I am only one among many who appreciates you and your endeavors. To the others who have been faithful players here, I have enjoyed the conversations without the spam and ego's, or arguing so many other sites have. You are a special group that I hope to remain in contact with when everyone switches over.

Cyberyang: Admin-Thanks for all your hard work with this site.(and everyone else who contributes) I can honestly say that TLEC has greatly enhanced the whole experience.


So nice to not say good-bye. See you later at TLC and SotL!

Admins: Now that the last Podcast is up and the Memory List...I do hate to ask this, but....when do we all "officially" move over to TLC? (I'm finding that me and some others are starting to post the same things in both places.) Are you going to put up a Post that says: One, two, three...go to The Lost Community! lol I'm assuming that TLEC will stay up forever, right?

I have one more thing to say tonight before I head off.

I have a lot of great memories from the experience and really I have gotten so much more out of it then I ever thought imaginable. I don't think I could even possibly explain it. Aside from anything else it's been a bit of an internal journey for me too. Perhaps one day I'll even look back and say it was life changing. Who knows.

Seem excessive? Maybe, but it's true. So despite whatever negativity I have expressed about things and the frustrations I have vented, this has been really special.

Okay that's it. Night all. If this is the final thread then this will probably be my final post here so just wanted to leave that thought. :)

bellyofdesire --

I probably stand out as much as anything because I was the first person to solve the "fast" solution to the TLEC glyph, and post that I thought it was the glyph on David's shirt shown in his t-shirt commercial. I seem to recall you were actively involved in the search for the two alternate solutions that day as well.

I also periodically participated in the trivia contests on the TLEC chat.

I was far, far more active on TLEC before my Japan trip in August. After that, I was on the road so much that I posted regularly at ITE, while reading this blog daily. Nonetheless, I always considered myself, rightly or wrongly, to be a member of this community too. I very much admired your own efforts.

Belly, et.al., My favorite things in The Holy grail are:

"How do you know she's a witch?"
"Wot, she turned me into a newt!"

And the killer bunny!!!!!!! :-)

Now I'll go to bed singing, "We're knights of the round table..."!

P.S. I found lots more warm and fuzzy posts from our blogs that I sent later to Twinkle, in case she can use them. Not even close to a complete representation of everyone who expressed their fond feelings towards the TLEC Admins and blog colleges, (blogeges?), but a fair share. There were tons more in the archives that I didn't get too. Bottom line, everyone here (regulars, lurkers, and visitors alike) appreciates the civilized atmosphere of communication and the lengths that the Admins went to, to keep everything that happened in TLE on the front page ASAP so that no one missed anything that happened in the game. A veritable mutual admiration society. :-) Very much unlike many other TLE blogs, as was also expressed. General consensus......TLEC gets the ARG Oscar! :-)

Capcom: Thanks! I just checked my mail. I'm adding them here, even though it's long. Thanks for all that work! And again this isn't an exhaustive list, just a sampling.

Goodbye List Continued

Oxillini: there are other forums, but this is the only community.

Maven: Great work everyone! Just proves how TLEC community all works together.
Maven: Can't wait to meet some TLECrs!

Peaceandnamaste: I've been reading the comments on 'other' blogs about TLE, and I was shocked at the amount of arguing, abuse, and just general spam.... People seem intent on just posting gibberish and stuff... I love you TLEC lol … But we're still learning alot about the LOST mythology, and having a good time in the process.

Thinbluemime: Belly, David, and Administrators, THANK YOU for you contribution, long suffering, and endless hours...you know we love you guys!!

Fenris: TLECs great. I posted the same thing in ITE and the only reply I got was the Wolfe.

Fenris: Given this was the first site I found I don't even know if I'd have really been part of the experience at all without this site, so thank you!

Ryandrumz: I hate when they take this game to myspace. Can't get it from work...But I always have you guys..

Dixxee: Glad to have had the opportunity to meet TLCM and Dennis at the event, nice to meet others who's family looked at them as nutty too!!!

Dark Angel: See you guys - great working out the truth with such an intelligent bunch of guys and girls.

Fastenyourseatbelts: i love this dialog by the way. you guys are freakin' smart.

Thrasher76: Had a great time at the Philly event!!! Met up with Adelphiadella and Cattygirl, both were super awesome!!!

Joann: Admin (David) thanks for staying up late and working on posting the podcast!

Lockebox: Thanks to all the Losties out there that made this summer pass so quickly! Thanks, TLEC. You rocked it like none other.

Dedjezter: I did however like the connections made and friends aquired, while playing and haveing a great time on-line and at real world events. This has been an EXPERIENCE and a pleasure to do it all with all of us involved.

Pharmacopaeia: ... but from New Zealand, arohanui (big love) to this community.

Congested: I had a good time tonight guys, but you all are what made the night, not TLE. Looking forward to seeing this community grow on the new blog and stories of the lost.

Patchwork3930: David, thank you SO much for posting the podcast. I was so sad that I couldn't get it to work and missed the whole thing.

Thanks for everything over the last few months. You guys made it fun even in the boring bits, and it was so nice to meet so many good people too.

Lostgrrl: And of course, after we have made such great connections, we couldn't possibly just let them drop after Game was over....so, along with this blog's new LOST Community Blog, we will once again have a companion message board!

Love pirate 77: I just gotta say thanks to everyone who made this so enjoyable.

Ellador: Cheers to all of you. You've brought joy to my lurking self.

Shrodes: Anti-climactic indeed. …but this game's been great nonetheless. Thanks to all involved in the site, and working out the clues.

Raphael: I mostly lurked but was contantly amazed by the game and the people of TLEC.

Cattygirl: Admin - you have made this my one stop for all things TLE. Thanks.

Your Mother: Thanks to all of the admins that put this blog together. Thanks to the Dallas people who made the ABC event worth going …. and thanks to everyone on this blog.

Chelsea: This is my fare thee well. Thank you admin for bringing us all together.

Belly0fdesire: Good morning everyone... It's been a blast, really... a lot of fun playing this game with you all. Twinkle... always got a kick out of your jokes and enjoyed helping you come up with some.
Belly0desire: GROUP HUG!

Scoutpost: Despite all the frustrations with the ARG, I've decided to focus on the positive…… THIS COMMUNITY of people! It was such fun reading all the theories, joking around, competing in trivia, late nite chats.

Superdifey: I certainly didn't post as often as I liked, but this was a great community, and as I have said before, thanks to Admin, Belly & Thrasher for making this such a fab place to spend my summer!!


Babarajay: You guys are great and I plan to hang around for TLC. I used to hang out on a couple of other LOST message boards before but never found the calm, welcoming, and smart atmosphere of TLEC.

I was fortunate with the Apollo Bars, because San Francisco had the only continuous give away in the US. So I ended up with something like ten of them (all given away to co-workers and friends, alas), including a Golden Oracle Bar.

I don't know what I'm going to do with that Golden Oracle Bar, in fact, now that the ARG apparently concluded. Maybe get it autographed by DJ Dan, who graciously allowed me to ask a question this time on his last podcast?

Well guys,

I'm in work early and I thought I'd just do one last post while your're all asleep :)

Just remember this isn't the end it's just just the end of the first page of the first chapter of the great TLC book :)

See you on the other side

Over and out

I didn't realize how long I was a lurker here until I went back to find my first comment and it wasn't until July. It was when I got excited and thought I had actually found a clue watching Kyle XY.... here it is:

"Did anyone else see the commercial during Kyle XY? Toward the end of Kyle XY (ABC Family) that really looks like something for the game. It gave this link.... http://madacorp.com and the "tone" of the commercial had the same feel as the Hanso commercials. There is a "employee locator" which may lead to something. I haven't figured it out."

I even emailed it in but received a polite response to let me know that it was not "in game."

One thing I notice was as time went on, how the main page of the blog became more colorful with picture and such. And in the comments, people started using avatars... and many of them changed. I know it took me a while to figure out how to do one so others must have done the same.

The thing I like best about this blog over other TLE site is how easy it is to read the comments and how they are not full of nonsence like the others.

Oh my... didn't notice how late it was... way past bed time. Nite all.

I've gotten so use to coming into work and opening up my email then firefox that I can't seem to break the habit. I think I'm a TLC addict.

Today is "ask a stupid question" day and since I missed "talk like a pirate" day I thought I'd put in a question

does anyone remember how to use an iron anymore?

I was trying to iron my son's shirt last night because he has a wedding this weekend and I kept swinging the thing around but it just wouldn't work.............

***David's Sappiness/Announcement***

Wow guys! It's fun to see all the "wrap up" convos going on lately...I agree that it's nice to see Megs & Sean flirting again! :) I think we'll leave this thread up UNTIL WEDNESDAY and then we'll do one more post directing people to THELOSTCOMMUNITY.COM and STORIESOFTHELOST.COM. I am so grateful and touched by all the support that has been poured out towards myself and the other administrators of this blog over the last few days. The community that has developed here has literally been a dream come true. You guys have thanked me a lot lately but truly, all of the credit goes to you...it is easy to do the facilitating when there is such a brilliant, diverse, and beautiful group of people doing all the participating. It was a blessing to participate with you all this summer.

I wanted to let everyone know that I'll be around off and on today and then tomorrow I am leaving to go out of town on a short vacation to celebrate my ONE YEAR WEDDING ANNIVERSARY (Ryan, thank you very much for sharing that video with everyone). Immediately after that, I will be traveling to a work-related conference in Atlanta (Much like the one Jim, Michael, and Dwight attended on last night's episode of the Office). I will not have access to a computer until Tuesday evening and then will have limited access until next Friday. Don't worry, I'll be sure to get a post up next Wednesday on TLC. Don't worry, I'm not disappearing...I very much look forward to engaging with this community on a regular basis as Season 3 develops.

Okay...***end of Sappiness/Announcement***

Hey David- Happy Anniversary! 1 down, 74 more to go! Seriously, wishing you many more happy years.
Just wanted to say, feeling better today, sorry I fell through for the podcast- but it turned out really great. Thanks for doing those, it would've been enough just to have the blog, but the podcasts were the icing on the cake. Thanks again!

I do have to remind myself of this from time to time!

Last night I was thinking...(I know dangerous)...but watching the posts slow down and remembering back to June and July, it is really hard to break this addiction/habit. What am I going to do when this is all over- not just the ARG, but the show? I'm going to need some serious therapy!

Scoutpost: Glad to hear you're feeling better!

Yeah, this habit it definitely hard to break. I feel a real need to "check in" each morning...hoping against hope that there's actually something new! Well, that will change after next Wednesday! I just have a big desire to stay in touch with all of you...just things like wishing David a Happy Anniversary and hearing Scoutpost is better, and seeing names I haven't seen in a while checking in...it's very comforting! This addiction to stay a part of this community is something I'm not ashamed of!

Just in case anybody's interested, I posted this question on Javi's blog...
In Rachel's first video, she receives a mysterious phone call that clearly upsets her.

So, who was on the line, how did he/she know how to reach her and what did he/she say?

And this is the *sigh* response...
that shall forever remain... shrouded in secrecy!

Hey engineer27... did you ever tell us what the 27 means in your name? You said you use it a lot at work? My daughter... also an engineer... says she uses 27 all the time too to convert cubic feet to cubic yards. What type engineer are you?

happy aniversary, david.
just make sure that you drive. lol.

9/29/2006 12:44:00 PM  
Blogger engineer27 said...

joann: Wow! Someone really cares!

I'm an elcetrical engineer, and I do integrated circuit design for a living. The basic electronic device I design with is a diode, which is what you get when you put two different kinds of semiconductor together. One has an excess of electrons, and the other has a lack of them, so when you put them together, the free electrons all jump from one side to the other. The resulting electric field creates a voltage (or "electrical potential") which depends on the temperature, the charge of the electron, and Boltzmann's Constant. At room temperature, it's about 25.9 millivolts, but it gets pretty hot here in South Florida, so I use 27.

As I said previously, the ones you all came up with were a lot more interesting (although I'm still not sure about Rusty Wallace).

Anyway, thanks for asking. Hope someone is still around to read this!

Hey, Christine! Long time no "see"! Welcome back!

FYSB: Yeah, some of Javi's answers leave a lot to be desired, don't they? Probably they don't know the answers because it's something they just "threw in" for effect! Like he says there's no Part 8 & 9 of Gary Troup Interviews: They just scripted 1-6! Didn't they think we'd go crazy over these "details"?

9/29/2006 12:59:00 PM

Engineer27, thanks for the explanation... very cool... my daughter is visiting this weekend and wanted me to ask. She understands what you are explaining about the semi conductors even though she is a civil engineer.

9/29/2006 01:04:00 PM  
Blogger engineer27 said...

I was hoping my radio knowledge was going to help with the Elecromagnetic Research Institute clues, but we didn't ultimately need to know much detail about EM.

I was ready with references to James Clerk Maxwell, though!

9/29/2006 01:06:00 PM  
Blogger engineer27 said...

joann: Your daughter does the really hard stuff. If my circuit's don't work, someone gets to say "Can you hear me now?" If her stuff doesn't work right, people can be seriously hurt.

BTW: Anyone notice how Lost is connected to everything? Think: Verizon, and balconies collapsing under Hurley.

I just wanted to say that I came into TLEC sometime in July or August, so a lot of you already knew each other already. But you guys were so cool even with newbies like me. Listening to the final podcast, I'm excited to get to know you guys over at TLC.
