if you go to http://www.dharmainitiative.com/ and then to a ctrl-a (or cmd-a or just drag your mouse across the black area), you'll select hidden text which says:

this is meta-spoilers of a major nature, if it can be trusted...Collapse )

[eta: most are speculating this is bs. i dunno if this is/was one of the official in-character sites or not.]

more meta-content [12 Oct 2005|09:40pm]

one of the spoiler sites said to look at dr. marvin candle's left hand. haven't had a chance to watch the orientation video again.

someone tried going to https://www.thehansofoundation.org/ which has one line of text that says bigspaceship1.com. going there shows a funky retro 3-d (as in blue and red glasses) image of a gas mask, and the title of the page is in morse code. it spells NARVIK FOR LIFE. narvik is a city in norway. could be a person's name too. ran it through an anagram generator, nothing jumping out at me, but there's lots of combinations.

eta: looks like dr. candle's left arm does not move at all. prosthetic?

eta: http://www.bigspaceship1.org/ goes to a different site. more hanso stuff.

meta-theory [05 Oct 2005|10:35pm]

i dunno if this has been mentioned elsewhere, since i don't dare think of myself as that original, but i think the mystery of the island and of the survivors is tied to promises. it seems like at least the main characters have either made promises they couldn't keep or have had promises made to them that weren't kept.

jack of course promised his future/ex-wife that he could fix her, but he couldn't, not really, not without whatever miracle happened (that may or may not involve desmond, but desmond brought up the "what if you could fix her").

michael couldn't keep the implied promise of being a parent for walt until recently (and i'm sure it wasn't just implied but i can't remember if or how michael said he'd take care of walt but couldn't).

sawyer promised to find the man who conned his parents and instead became that (type of) man.

charlie's older brother broke a promise to protect him.

maybe promise isn't the right word, it conjures up too much of a concrete, explicit agreement "i promise to..." but there are a lot of unspoken promises. locke was conned by his dad, who abandoned him when he was born anyway, more broken parental "promises". jin and sun took wedding vows (promises) which they couldn't keep to each other, jin because he got sucked into his father in law's world, and sun was going to leave him. kate, didn't she promise something or another to her childhood boyfriend? i don't remember.

anywho. it's not very well thought out but it's been brewing in my mind for weeks.

Lost: Season 2, Episode 2. "Adrift" [29 Sep 2005|04:28am]

[ mood | pensive ]

(Randomly, how is it that I am able to recall billions of episode names from shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, but can't, for the life of me, remember names for episodes of Alias and Lost??)

I ask you all to also take a look at shiningmoon's post about "Adrift" as well, which is located here (and has spoilers for the ep, obviously).

I think that's all I have to say for now, but it's 4:30am and I may have missed a lot of stuff. :)

Here we go, the first episode of the second season, and the first real post about an episode in this community. I feel like I should say a speech or something. ;) Instead, we'll just cut right to the good stuff, eh?

lost spoilers [17 Sep 2005|08:44am]

aicn a few days ago had a mildly spoilery faq and a very spoilery recap of the first ep.

here's a link to the mildly spoilery faq that answers questions like:

What’s [the ep] called?
Who’s responsible?
What does TV Guide say?
What’s in the hatch?
Who goes in the hatch?
What happened to Michael, Jin, Sawyer, and Walt on the boat?
Do we find out the meaning of the numbers?
Do we see the monster?
Does someone kick the bucket?
Whose episode is it?

(hopefully these questions are _not_ spoilers in and of themselves, which they shouldn't be if you've watched the first season. i pity the fool who's starting lost from the second season.)

here's a link to the super duper spoilery basically a recap of the entire first ep, so you've been warned when you click this!!!!!

Some interesting threads. [17 Sep 2005|02:13am]

brinshannara
Here are some links to some neat threads at the theory board over at oceanicflight815.com, although you might want to beware of spoilers if you go poking around that board.

Very detailed summary of what we know, what we don't know, what questions we have and basically all the characters.

Excellent summary of the oceanicflight815.com site and what you'll find by clicking on what.

Summary of the oceanic-air.com site.

Bear in mind that this posts are very thorough, but, so far, only seem to cover what we've seen in the show through Season 1 and some goodies that the producers have made available on the websites. Going on in the threads may be spoilerish, but the posts that are linked to should be spoiler free in that we don't find out anything that hasn't already been available online or known through the show for the past few months.

And now, a poll to get a better idea of who likes what, your favourite characters, how obsessive you are and how much you love Sawyer. ;)

Welcome! [15 Sep 2005|12:43am]

brinshannara
Welcome to flight815islost!

Please be sure to read the rules and stuff for the community.

Lost starts airing Season 2 at 9pm on Wednesday, September 21st. Feel free to post theories and speculation for the upcoming season, and be sure that any spoilers are behind a cut-tag and are also clearly marked as spoilers in the cut-tag text itself. (ie: <lj-cut text="Rambling speculation about S2, due to a spoiler!">)

I'll start things off. Has everyone headed over to oceanicflight815.com and oceanic-air.com? What have you found?
