4 / 8 / 15 / 16 / 23 / 42 / bird / eye / squiggly line

Remember how great Lost was, especially around seasons 2 and 3? Before they got off the island and started time-travelling and it turned out to be all about some cosmic chess game between two moral abstractions made flesh and an underground, colour-changing light fountain? Remember when crazy shit would happen and you’d be all, whoa, what the hey?! Like when Ben managed to make Locke’s Dad appear from a magic box, or Desmond shut off the fail-safe and the sky turned purple, or Locke found the glow-in-the-dark map of the island painted on the inside of the hatch door?

Man, I miss Lost.

1MAAAAAAAAAAAALT! Liquor. I wish this was a real thing.
2Michael B. Myers Jr. (a.k.a. DrawsGood)’s Lost: The Animated Series is something else I wish was real. I’m partial to this anthropomorphised Smoke Monster, which - let’s be honest - has a heck of a lot more personality than the vague-outlined black cloud that appeared on the show.
3I love custom toys, and Wade Schin has outdone himself with these. I wish they were mine. So much cooler than the (admittedly incredibly-sculpted) McFarlane Toys action figures of Locke and Hurley.
