Hurley is easily my favorite character on LOST (which is my favorite show), so when I discovered he had a blog, I immediately subscribed.

DispatchesFromTheIsland is less about LOST than it is Jorge’s life on the island of Hawaii. Even if you’re not a fan of the show, you should check it out. His writing is personal, engaging and entertaining – all things that make you want to keep reading.

I’ll also blame him for showing me (see image below). Hilarious and disturbing a sat the same time.

So, thanks for freaking me out Jorge.


On a trip through Knoxville this weekend, Jill and I spotted the above billboard, but couldn’t make out the spray painted message as we went by. Of course, a quick Google returns many results and they are quite interesting.

There’s a whole viral site located at and if you don’t have time to decipher the entire game/site, then read Oceanic Conspiracies for a breakdown of the happenings on the site.

Oceanic Conspiracies lists all of the “in game” websites and has summaries of all the videos, voicemail  and other content on the site.

According to an article in an Omaha newspaper, the billboards appear in cities that LOST fans think are connected to key characters on the show…

Fans of the show believe the billboards have been placed in the area where certain “Lost” characters are from. Kate Austen, who fled to Australia after killing her mom’s lover is played by Evangeline Lilly and in the show is said to be from Iowa. An American marshal captured Austen in Australia and was transporting her back to American before the plane crashed.

The site’s game is set to end on Jan. 31 when the first episode of Season 4 premieres. Here’s hoping that the viral content leads right into the premiere rather than falling flat like the viral game featuring “Rachel” did a few summers ago.

Cloverfield Monster

Well, not really, but you can actually see a split-second glimpse of something in the newly released trailer.

Browsing Michael’s comments, I found a few more interesting links regarding the creature.

This creature mock up image, mirrors some of the details leaked. This means the details were either accurate or the image was created based on the details.

This video, loops the footage I pulled the screen-shot from.

Regardless, I’m excited to see the film. It’s an interesting concept, by a creator I like. Having said that, the LOST Missing Pieces shorts are somewhat disappointing, so far. The first with Jack was interesting, but the second one (with Hurley) felt like a Saturday Night Live skit that was going nowhere.

From Entertainment Weekly’s web-site

The new season of Lost begins Monday! Kinda. ABC has (quietly) announced that it will begin posting its Lost “mobisodes” (originally intended to debut with Verizon Wireless customers) on Monday, Nov. 12, at The series of two- to three-minute vignettes — collectively known as “Missing Pieces” — kicks off with “The Watch,” focusing on Matthew Fox’s character. The micro-stories aren’t deleted scenes — they’re newly-shot material that fits into the larger Lost saga; it’s up to the fans to figure out where they belong. A new Webisode will post each Monday.

That’s awesome news. With the WGA strike in effect, most shows have uncertain futures past December. Heroes is planning for a possible season (Volume II) finale on December 3 and LOST may not make it on the air in February as planned. With a shortened season of 16 episodes, producers Damon Lindelof and Carton Cuse want all 16 episodes to air together as planned, but have stated that it is ultimately ABC’s decision when and where LOST will air.
