TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3217:
Today's Guest Blog is by my wife, Tina LoSasso:
OK, I admit it. I’m lost without my favorite show - LOST.
Comic-Con just wasn’t the same this year: no LOST panel, no camping out with fellow LOSTIES trying to get great seats, no playing LOST trivia games with Jo Garfein of JoOpinionated.
I pinned my LOST fan pin (thanks, Jo!) to my lanyard and tried valiantly to find something new to grab my interest.
I saw a couple premieres – “The Event” and “Nikita”. They had some high points, but nothing like watching that guy get sucked into the plane engine in the LOST pilot at SDCC 2004. (At which point, I turned to Michael and said, “I don’t care what you think, we are watching this show!”)
I walked around the Exhibit floor looking for fun stuff and trying to follow Michael through the crowd. On Sunday, he stopped me at a small booth and pointed – my heart leapt – it was a preview of the LOST Encyclopedia!
I poured over it that night. It’s like a little fix for all us lost LOSTIES. The LOST Encyclopedia will have over 400 pages and 1500 images of LOST stuff! It’s being released in October. Imagine reading it and reliving your favorite LOST moments. You’re sure to learn something new about the show. Writers Tara Bennett and Paul Terry, who did the official LOST Magazine, worked with the producers to catalog everything you can imagine about the best show ever.
I’m parting with a couple copies of the preview copy, appropriately called Artifacts – it’s 40 pages of pictures and descriptions of LOST stuff. Michael has listed them in our online store. You can get your fix here.
If the LOST Encyclopedia is a ‘little’ fix, the LOST Show Auction is a ‘Lost Weekend’ of fun. Profiles in History, the largest auctioneer of Hollywood memorabilia, is running the auction August 21-22 in Santa Monica starting at 1 pm PST. They’ve got it all:
Hurley’s winning LOTTO ticket
Dharma suits, Dharma food and Dharma beer!
Mr. Eko’s stick
Locke’s hunting knives
Charlie’s DS ring
Sawyer’s letter to Mr. Sawyer
Jin’s wedding ring
Desmond’s picture of him and Penny
Even Claire’s squirrel baby – and the cradle Locke made for her birthday in Season 1
If you want to bid on any of the show items, you need to register with the auctioneer. You can register as a bidder, check out the auction catalog online and even buy yourself a copy ($55) at http://www.ww.profilesinhistory.com .
Me, I’m sticking with LOST Encyclopedia and hoping for a new show that is half as great next season.
