LOST: A Thanks


Yesterday I shed the first of what promises to be many tears and smiles when Andy Page posted this on the DarkUFO site:

Unless you’ve had your brain removed recently you will know that Tonight marks the last ever episode of our show LOST.

It’s a bittersweet feeling knowing that the show we all love is finally coming to an end after all these years and I know I’ll miss it greatly. The show and this site have become such a large part of my recent life that I cannot remember a time before Lost (probably due to the amount of beer I drink).

I was going to write a huge great post that probably no one would have read anyway, but I think had I done so, I’d of started to well up and get a little teary eyed, so instead I’ll keep it short and sweet.

As we head into tonights episode I hope you all enjoy it as much as I know I will and that you’ll come back after to share your thoughts and comments on the Episode and Vote in our various polls.

One of the best things to come out of Lost for me personally is that of the LOST fan community that has built up over the years as well as all the wonderful people I’ve had the pleasure to meet and work with online. So many people that I don’t want to thank them all because if I miss one person out I don’t want them to be offended. All the helpers and contributors for DarkUFO, SpoilerTV and the Forum all know who they are and without their help this site would not be what it is today. Also, I must not forget to thank every one of you who visit the site, vote on the polls, comment on the posts, ReTweet our content etc. It’s all helped build DarkUFO into one of the largest ever Fan sites ever on the Internet (the site has been loaded over 160+ Million Times since we started).

However, as the title of this post suggests, we’re not going anywhere fast here at DarkUFO (See Below) and we’ll be around for as long as people keep visiting the site.

The phenomenon that is LOST has impacted me, personally, in more ways than I can imagine. Like Andy, I’ve been able to embrace friends from around the world who share their love for this outstanding program. I’ve learned the fine art of writing about a show I loved, sharing those words with thousands of readers at DarkUFO, TVOvermind, and on my little blog (Which has become far more than a “little” blog thanks to LOST and Survivor.) and having the opportunity to “sit down” and have fun with comedian Paul Scheer, Damon Lindlof and Carlton Cuse in the establishment of last year’s Damon, Carlton and a Polar Bear.

Like Andy said, the show may be over but our mission isn’t. Namaste!

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:

DAMONCARLTONANDAPOLARBEAR.COM&

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”.

Ronie Midfew

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.

20 Questions for Paul Scheer: An Interview


lostpict32 Following the exclusive and insightful podcast interview Doc Arzt (You can listen HERE)  had with Paul Scheer, the Picasso of Black Velvet, I was able to “sit down” with Paul and field a few important questions of my own. Here’s 20 Questions for Paul Scheer:

H: What other television show you’ve seen, other than one you’ve been involved in, has elicited such a fervor as LOST?

P: The Suite Life with Zach and Cody.

H: If you were a number…4, 8, 15, 16, 23, or 42…which would you be and why?

P: 42 cause I like my numbers like my beer. Actually I like my numbers 2 digits higher than I like my beer. I guess what I’m really saying is that I’m an alcoholic.

H: If today’s the 16th in Hawaii, what day is it in California?

P: Trick question. There is no such place as Hawaii.

H: Your medium is black velvet. How would you depict the smoke monster?

P: With pieces of the actual smoke monster of course but everytime I get it into my house, it always tries to drag me back to its hole.

H: Who would convey better on black velvet, Kate or Juliet?

P: Juliet because I haven’t figured out how to do freckles yet.

H: Who’s the biggest nerd, Damon or Carlton?

P: Darlton when combined their power is greater like Voltron.

H: What LOST characters are you considering for your future paintings?

P: Rose and Bernard and a Polar Bear.

H: Have you thought of using flourescent paint on black velvet?

P: You’ve read my mind. Aaaah please stop doing that. (H: oops!)

H: Who’s your hero?

P: Arsenio Hall

H: If Damon and Carlton offered you a role on LOST five years ago, who would you have wanted to be?

P: The guy who gets sucked into the engine.

H: If Damon and Carlton offered you a role on it’s final season, who would you want to be?

P: Aaron.

H: If you painted Elvis in Hawaii on black velvet, would Ronie Midfew accuse you of violating “intellectual property”?

P: No because America owns Elvis.

H: Why does Damon always wear white and Carlton always wear black?

P: Because they are trying to get people to nickname them oreo.

H: If you were a survivor of a plane crash on an island, which LOST character would you want to be with?

P: Shannon because we could use her inhalers to catch a quick buzz.

H: If you were a survivor of a plane crash on an island, which LOST character would you not want to be with?

P: Boone because he seems like he smells like axe body spray.

H: What’s your favorite item on the Mr. Cluck’s menu?

P: I don’t eat at Mr. Cluck after I saw SuperCluck Me.

H: If Mr. Eko was a frontman for a rap group, which would it be?

P: Positive K. H: Would you advise Rose and Bernard to leave the island?

P: No because I owe them money.

H: Is Ben good or bad?

P: Ben is neither. He’s like the island’s Simon Cowell. He just says what you need to hear.

H: Where the eff’s my painting?

P: Ronie Midfew must have intercepted the Fedex delivery to your house. (H: Damn, foiled again!)

Be sure to keep up with Paul’s blog at Damon, Carlton and a Polar Bear for more about his battle with Ronie Midfew Arts, and stay tuned for an important unveiling on his site this Saturday, August 15th, at Midnight PST!

Paul Scheer Invades the LOST Studio!


In his latest installment on Damon, Carlton, and a Polar Bear; Paul Scheer has posted a funny and informing video:

And we learn the title of  Episode 6.01 will be:

LA  X

Notice the space? Wonder what it means? Does it indicate LAX, as in the airport? Or LA X as in “Not LA”? Any other ideas?

A New LOST ARG


Somehow I’ve failed to remember to post this for my LOST fans – too much political crap going on out there I’ve forgotten the important things in life.

LOST!

Anyhow, during Comic-Con this year, Lindelof and Cuse were presented apainting portrait (painted on black velvet…lol) bearing their likenesses standing on either side of a polar bear.

Here’s the presentation of the painting to the duo by the “artist”, comedian Paul Scheer, at Comic-Con:

Now, the painting and circumstances surrounding it have spurned a new LOST ARG to prepare us for the upcoming season.

Involving fans, celebrities, and even Dark UFO and Doc Arzt, my compadre, fellow poster and creator of TVOvermind, there’s a blog out there dedicated to Scheer’s painting and his quest to clear his name. You’ll see what I mean when you read the blog (and feel free to discuss in Comments!):

Enjoy!
