An Important Announcement from Paul Scheer


There’s been an interesting and intriguing update for those of you following the adventures of comedian Paul Scheer and his encounters with the mysterious Ronie Midfew, not to mention the new LOST ARG.

Paul just posted on his blog, Damon, Carlton and a Polar Bear, that he has reached an agreement with Ronie Midfew:

RONIE MIDFEW ARTS

JOIN FORCES FOR

THE ULTIMATE LOST EVENT

partnership1This probably doesn’t make much sense to any of you. If you were to tell me I would team up with Ronie Midfew Arts a week ago, I’d say, “I’d rather let Keamy execute my daughter right in front of me, than join with them.” But let’s just say “Ronie” was very persuasive.

I can’t get into the full details of our agreement at this time. However I can say that I agreed to TEMPORARILY stop production and promotion of my LOST inspired velvet artistry for an undisclosed reason in lieu of a new opportunity which I ultimately think will blow your mind. Wow, that was a mouthful.

This new endeavor is an idea I’ve had for quite some time but never had the resources to produce myself but my partnership with this group is finally going to make it possible. Case in point, after I pitched my idea to Ronie we were able to take the concept to Damon and Carlton at their offices in Los Angeles and include them in on it as well. Which means this project is going to be done with the full support of the LOST team.

I used to think Ronie Midfew Arts was the devil but if the devil loves Lost as much as I do how bad of a guy can he be? If we are able to pull off this idea, which we will, this will be much better than anything that I could put on velvet. This is truly for all of us fans of LOST.

Unfortunately to support this endeavor fully DAMONCARLTONANDAPOLARBEAR will change it’s focus and direction and this might be the last time your hear from me for quite some time. But know that I’ll be behind the scenes working hard to pull this off.

LET THE HUNT BEGIN!

SEE YOU HERE

TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT (PST)

Over at the Ronie Midfew Arts website is the following announcement:

After weeks of miscommunication, my company, Ronie Midfew Arts is proud to announce a partnership with Paul Scheer and his website, DamonCarltonAndAPolarBear.com. After I met with Mr. Scheer, and my two hand selected mediators, we were able to compromise and move foward with an idea that is in both of our best interests, while simultaneously celebrating “the fan,” which in the end, coincidentally, was a motivation and a goal we both shared. Our newly formed team worked together to create what is sure to be an unforgettable 2nd half of 2009. A LOST celebration of fine art fit for a final season, masterminded by pioneers in this field. We look forward to moving forward with this new relationship, starting tonight at Midnight PST. And for the record, Mr. Scheer, my name is pronounced “Ro-knee”.

This obviously means a new LOST ARG will begin in a few hours. Considering the frequent use of the word “Hunt”, could this be a scavager hunt? Didn’t ABC have a similar type of hunt the first season (?) with a panaroma of a beach where we could find things hidden? Or (lol) was that in an alternate universe?

Either way, I’m stoked.

Is This the New LOST ARG?


From TVOvermind:

Kudos to The ODI and Erin at Dark UFO for finding the following item nestled among the goodies at the Comic Con LOST Auction (the second picture is written on the back of each card):

It’s pretty obvious this is the beginning of a new ARG. The link provided on the front of the card, www.lostuniversity.org, takes us to the ABC website for Lost University with what appears to be lots of interactive fun.

I’m thrilled! This looks a lot more fun than last year’s ARG and we are overdue for something to keep us occupied until January.

Enjoy!

Is LOST Coming to Disney World?


According to this, yes. Don’t believe it. You heard it here first.

From the blog:

Walt Disney Parks and Resorts has announced extensive plans to convert the old Discovery Island in Bay Lake to a new Lost-themed attraction. Lost Island is set to receive guests by the Summer of 2011, a year after the show concludes its six-year run on ABC.“We strong believe that the show will live on in popularity after its conclusion. This type of show can be successful in syndication for decades and with the advent of DVD—sales of which have been very high for this series—there is clear evidence that Lost will remain popular well after next Spring’s series finale,” said Celandine Coda, vice chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.The immersive experience will bring guests to the islands in disparate ways, providing two distinct experiences per each trip to the island. The attraction is also unique as the exploration of the island in its entirety forms one complete experience, however each area of the island works as an individual attraction.“We have this great experience for the Swan station which guests get to tour as if they were the survivors first discovering the infamous ‘hatch’. But suddenly things go wrong and this station tour becomes a ride! It’s an extension of the Imagineering used in rides such as The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and Star Tours taken to the next level!”, explained Coda.

Imagineers will use similar technology to give the infamous smoke-monster a presence on the island, much like it was displayed in the first season. “There were some obvious issues with depicting the monster the way it’s been portrayed in recent seasons so we took a page from those initial episodes and cast the monster into the trees,” detailed Coda.

Ummmm…One of the anagrams for “Celandine Coda” is:
