Season 5. I do adore season 1 but it’s almost a different show. Nothing can beat the mystery of season 1 but season 5 has Dharma 1977, young Ben and a dapper old Ben. The only thing it doesn’t have is Charlie :(
A few days ago www.mychemicalromance.com had a makeover. The most infuriating makeover ever. Everything disappeared other than an old fashioned tv set with 5 channels labelled RFDD, BLND, WKIL, KLSK and HRBT. The set itself is labelled PTTP (power to the people?). Weird noises, possible morse code, Frank Sinatra music and A Horse With No Name all feature on the various channels and the images that accompany them are just as cryptic.
At the same time a number of strange Twitter accounts appeared. Most notably @DrDeathDefying@AgentCherriCola and @Newsagogo. The tweets all have a rather post-apocalyptic vibe about them and the internet is going crazy with theories.
My head feels like it’s going to explode. I even tried to learn morse bloody code for all of 5 minutes. I need answers. I don’t know what’s going on but what I do know is that I’m very excited and Agent Cherri Cola seems like cool inspiration for a tattoo.
I sent this image to Adam the other day. I had a day off work and turned on the tv to a young(ish) Bernard in Murder, She Wrote. Very exciting it was. So this is my Lost related photo I took myself. You gotta love Bernard.
I accidentally (don’t ask) shaved my eyebrows off a few years ago and they never grew back quite right and are still bald in places. I draw them on everyday and I’m obsessed with other people’s eyebrows. So I love this.
Charlie. No doubt about it. I was gutted when I couldn’t buy anything of his in the Lost auction. He’s the most human character, he has the most real faults I think but he turns out to be a real hero as well.
My second favourite it Ben. A very loveable villain. I’d totally follow Ben around the island. I want both of their candidate numbers tattooed on my fingers.
Toughie as I’m not a big fan of the female characters strangely enough. I think I’ll have to go with Claire. She’s an important character all the way through the series, especially her relationship with Kate. She gets some really interesting flash-backs and is central to the great unanswered question surrounding the importance of Aaron (if he’s important at all). Also she gets Charlie so she’s bloody lucky. Oh and she goes fucking mental. Squirrel Baby anyone?!
Other than that I think Libby is a good character, once again she’s mental and very sweet. Ana Lucia is pretty hot so she’d rank high too. Alex as well, especially in the flash-sideways.
You cannot ask me this question! It’s too hard. “Greatest Hits” and both parts of “Through the Looking Glass” would be high up on my list, especially because Charlie delivers one hell of a line in the latter (when Ben asks who had infiltrated the Looking Glass Charlie shouts, “It’s Charlie, tell him I say hi!”). Anything from Season 5 is good too, I love everything about that season.
This is a tough one because I have a few and let’s be honest, Lost is pretty hilarious in places. My top quote would probably be "Whatever happened, happened" said by one of my favourite characters Daniel Faraday but Ben and Charlie both have some brilliant lines too.
One I like from season 5 is when Jack asks Ben, “How can you read?” as they are waiting for their plane to crash and Ben says, “My mother taught me” and then gives Jack a little smile. Brilliant.
Another is this exchange between Charlie and Mr. Eko:
Mr. Eko: Climb that tree.
Mr. Eko: Climb that tree and perhaps we’ll be able to get your bearings or see the plane.
Charlie: You climb it! What if I don’t? You gonna beat me with your Jesus-stick?! I find it a little odd that your scripture-stick has dried blood on it!
Mr. Eko: Are you going to climb that tree or not?
[Eko gives Charlie a scary look and Charlie begins to climb]
Macaulay Culkin was my first big crush. I had hundreds and hundreds of photos of him when I was about 8. Even now I can’t help but love him and I was going to post this photo yesterday but I didn’t, then when I got up today he was trending on Twitter! I thought he’d died but turns out he just turned 30. Phew! So here’s the photo.
I saw this photo of Christian Bale and Mary Harron and it reminded me of a story my film studies tutor told me. He used to live with Mary Harron and apparently she used to write Jonathan Ross’ film reviews. I now wonder if he actually writes his own. ???
Day 22 – Do you say your country’s national anthem/pledge of allegiance when it is said/listened to?
Yeah, I’m not a royalist or anything really but I’m proud to be British and so don’t have anything against singing the national anthem. It actually annoys me when certain members of the England football team don’t sing the national anthem. If they’re happy to represent their country then they should be happy to sing it’s anthem.
I’m also going to answer tomorrow’s question today because it’s a weird one and the last one so I’ll get it out the way:
Day 21 – What do you think about the death penalty?
Hmmm, pretty controversial and seeing as we don’t have it over here and I doubt we ever will it’s not overly important what I think. To be honest it’s one of those things I think sounds better in theory than in practice, ideally it’s horrific enough of a punishment that it puts you off ever committing a crime but really it raises issues that I don’t know enough about so don’t think I’ll get into.
I think when it’s done well it’s great and when it’s done badly it’s horrific. People often get it done for the wrong reasons but I think if there’s a part of your body that makes you unhappy and you can have it fixed then why not? I’d love a boob job and I’d love lipo on my thighs and on my double chin.
