I think that I need to think about what I have already seen before I go hunting for anything new!

I'm glad they didn't kill Desmond. But I would have thought they could have had Sayid deactivate the bomb in a minute, and there was plenty of time for Jin or Desmond to tell Sayid. And I would imagine Locke could have strapped the heart monitor to himself and it would continue operating.

And boy, does Malcolm David Kelley look old. Is Hurley serious though, is Michael still alive?

Coffin guy = Locke? Did he look a bit puffy to anyone else?

Where did the Six supposedly get that nice raft?

Awesome finale. Can't wait to hear the podcast. Never saw Locke in the coffin- brings up all kind of questions.

And what the hell was the donkey wheel...I mean, what is it like hooked to that makes it able to "move the island"? Looked like it started glowing or something and then of course the blinding light and weird noise. I don't think the island is physically moving though, just somehow moving into some other dimension or time or something.

I think, 420, that, in all seriousness, it goes back to your wormhole theory.

If you go back and watch the finale again, when the chopper lands on the freighter, and everyone is scrambling to do their part, Frank tells Sayid to put the raft into the chopper. so they grabbed in from the freighter.

Finale rocked, been trying to get lostlowdown podcast#50, anyone know where we can listen to it?

also, as far as the donkey wheel, i believe it is a "Polar Bear wheel." My theory is that Dharma or The others had an experiment to use the Polar Bears to move the island. Hence why they were training them to get fish biscuits in the cages, etc. Also could be why a polar bear was in Tunisia, maybe the Polar bears got transported.

also, I belive Charlesd Widmore used to be on the island and when he moved the island years ago, he can never go back, just like Ben. But I really want to know why Widmore is having nightmares.

claude and justin, you guys rock, can't wait to hear podcast#50.

podcast! podcast! podcast! (start the chant).

how would you move a volcano anyway? "we'll just put the hot lava over here." and if they were really wasting time training polar bears to move an island - wow. ever hear of robots? or the human version of robots - slaves? get real DHARMA. and how would the polar bears get down to the Donkey Wheel anyhow? take the elevator? LOL (haha)

I have a couple questions and I would really appreciate a response from Claude or Justin.

1. How do talk about the same subject for 8 hours?

2. Why do you think it's a good idea to produce an eight hour podcast?

3. By producing eight hour podcasts, aren't you limiting your audience to obsessive compulsive shut-ins?

I'm honestly not trying to insult anyone, I'm really just curious.

6/09/2008 10:04:00 AM  
Blogger Justin said...

First, this is 2 8+ hour segments, so in all, the podcast is almost 17 hours. Thus, you can replace "8" by "17", and I will assume that you did so.

1. By focusing on details, considering many interpretations and possibilities, speculating, going on tangents... I'm sure there are many more answers one could give here.

2. I don't consciously think that the length of the podcast is a "good idea". We simply do the podcast and put out what we have. Some of our podcasts are only 3 hours long, it all depends on the episode and what we have to say about it.

3. I would guess that many listeners listen in "chunks". So the longer podcast lasts over a period of several days (weeks?) instead of one short session of an hour or so. Thus, one need not be a shut-in to enjoy the podcast. You can pretend it is 17 different 1 hour podcasts if you like. Furthermore, I don't really think about what I want the audience to be. We put out what we have and whoever likes it will listen. I'm not really concerned about what type of people they are. I do think that they are, in fact, ordinary people who like listening to us talk, and I do not appreciate the implied insult to them, intended or otherwise.

Lucky for you, our podcast is not compulsory. There are many other podcasts out there, and most of them are quite short.

My preceding comment was directed toward "languageisavirus".

The links are working for me, and others, according to hipcast.

I would just like to 2nd what Justin said and say that, far from a 'shut-in,' I am a young, working artist who has a day-job in an office and teaches art. I am busy just about 24-7, but when I am at work, I like to listen to podcasts. Usually I start by listening to Democracy Now, and then I listen to a couple of others, and I listen to a couple of hours of LLD a day. I know that other listeners do similar things and some listen at the gym, in the car, etc. I don't think I am alone in saying that if it were a 6 hour Lost (or any other TV show) podcast done by other people, it wouldn't hold my attention as well bc Claude and Justin are funny.
You say you aren't trying to insult anyone, but your snarky tone seems to contradict that claim.

The other episode where Justin presented was Podcast #6, but listening to the first few minutes did not have Justin announcing #50 would be the next. Off the top of my head I think that podcast is #16, but I don't know why it would be on that one.

holy crap. i loaded up the MP3's just to see the duration. 1000 MINUTES TOTAL? hahaha this is going to be epic.

and for languageisavirus: who says people dont come back to it in chunks? ive listened to their podcasts over days at a time. ill more than likely do the same with this one. i think their podcast, even if its long for some peoples tastes, has some of the better perspective on the show and they arent afraid to cut on it and make a joke of some of it. most of the other podcasts are too wuss to do so because they dont want to ruffle any feathers of people who "might be listening."

the funniest thing is that for someone who is so smart with a witty screen name (that isnt even culturally accurate) actually asked questions that had obvious answers.

what about Locke being able to make magic drug pastes - but cant find the right flower.............. that whole scene was lame. "heres the long plan... that doesnt matter at all."

It's the Tower Bridge, not the London Bridge. The London Bridge is different.

6/10/2008 09:31:00 AM  
Blogger Justin said...

Wikipedia say:
"Tower Bridge is sometimes mistakenly referred to as London Bridge, which is actually the next bridge upstream"

I'm guessing that when I was in England, I heard it referred to that way. Because I don't remember 'tower bridge' at all, but I know the landmark by sight. I was 12 at the time, so I had no idea about anything.

A very sincere thanks to all of those who appreciate the LLD.

We're just two guys talking about a TV show, yet somehow we garner detractors.

All I can say was said in a good song by a great band:

"We do it for ourselves, we do it for you. If you don't like it, well, I hope you do "

Regarding how we listen to the show - I used to listen at work so I could get through several hours a day. Now I have a small baby so I listen in small chunks when she is asleep. Perhaps the best way now there is no more Lost for ages. Well done to Claude and Justin!

I love this podcast BECAUSE its so long. No stone left unturned. But I hate that I can't sort of jump in the conversation. By the time I get to discussing that piddly point in hour 10 you guys did that like a week or so ago. I'm on hour 11 now btw.

Oh yeah I don't think Hurley's crazy. I think he sees dead people. I think Dave was one of them. He only thinks he's crazy cause he knows hes seeing people who aren't visible to other people.

Thats my theory I've had since episode 4:1. I thought that chess match w/Eko confirmed it.

Podcasters are a lot like magicians in many ways that I won't go into, but I will reveal, that, yes, we did in fact record the podcast in multiple segments. We tried to continue the flow of conversation, and I tried to edit them together to make it sound natural. I'd love to play a lil game of "spot the edit point", but I don't actually remember where they are, so I wouldn't be very good at it.

I am into hour 2 of segment 2 and I can't tell where you stopped and started! Have you come up with a T-shirt design for "I survived the 16.5 (or however long it is) podcast!" yet? You should.

Hi all, you know I love the podcast - been with it for awhile, sticking with it, length be damned!

Anyway, an idea of why Ben "can't return to the island after moving it." Maybe the moving of the island begins a 'new era,' when the leadership changes. Moving the island is like passing the baton of leadership? Not allowing the old leader back could easily dispel in-fighting.

*Maybe in the past, Widmore moved the island, which implies.....
explains why he has been on the island before and has so much trouble getting back?? (Daughter born there?)

I believe you guys are right about Kate's dream not being the same thing as what Hurley and Jack see. It's just a dream. To that point, if you go back and listen to that scene, you'll notice it's Evangeline Lily's voice saying "Don't you dare bring him back!" not Emilie DeRaven's. It was dubbed. Go back a listen to the scene.

The fake wreckage was placed near Indonesia to get it far away from the real island. It was also placed in one the deepest trenches on the planet, making it unrecoverable.
