One year post Lost

Can you believe it's been one year since Lost was on? Everyone has their own opinions on the series finale, and a lot of people were angry about it. I don't want to say I was angry, yet I also wasn't a fan of it. I think underwhelmed describes my emotions on it. Regardless of whether you loved it or hated it, I think we can all say we were entertained for several seasons of the show, and I think the Lost Party we threw was incredible. I didn't have my blog back then, but I still wanted to share some pictures from it.

We all picked our favorite characters to dress up as for the party.

Vanessa chose Cindy, the stewardess that gave Jack an extra bottle of booze on the original Flight 815. Often seen with The Others, but never explained. What was the deal with that?

Peloso was everyone's favorite captain, Chesty! I mean Frank Lapidus, complete with an Air Ajira badge!

 Renee picked Olivia, the Dharma school teacher.

Greg represented the original ghost hunter, Miles.

Mary Beth went with Eloise Hawking, aka Ellie, aka Leader of the Others, aka Mrs. Whidmore, aka Farraday's Mommy...

Mario delved deeply into the role of our disillusioned hero, Jack, epic beard and all. He's got his St. Sebastian medical ID, beer and our favorite tattoo. That's what it says, it's not what it means...

I didn't like any of the female characters on the show, so I was at a loss for who to dress up as. Renee came up with a brilliant idea. She suggested I dress as the #8 bunny, seeing how Ben was my favorite character of the show.

Something about this clip makes me laugh. Every. Single. Time.

Mario and Vanessa went all out their decorations. From labeling every bit of food in the house with Dharma tags, to displaying it in John Locke's suitcase (you can see the luggage tag if you look closely) to the drugs in the Mary statues found on the island. Renee made some delicious Dharma cupcakes and I created cookies I called "Pieces of Arzt" (I couldn't find my pictures of them, but they were sugar cookies rolled into the shapes of finger nails with almond slivers for fingernails and red food coloring to represent blood. Topped off with raspberry jam, they were created for Hurley's line, "Dude, you've got some Arzt on you!"

The other part of Lost that I will never sour over is the hauntingly beautiful music of Michael Giacchino. I listen to it all the time. It's a regular whenever I'm hiking or taking pictures down at the beach. I like to imagine I'm an extra, walking along the shore in an epic scene from the show.

I thought I'd throw up a couple of my favorite Lost websites. 

Never Seen Lost is a brilliant blog that follows the final season of Lost by, you guessed it, somebody that had never watched an episode before. This website made many unbearable episodes hysterical and his cartoons are outstanding. Who doesn't miss Sad Day Monster? I found myself looking forward to these recaps much more than Doc Jensen's. 

Speaking of, thanks for never finishing your Lost theory Doc. You've been saying we'll get it for over a year now, and quite frankly sir, I do not believe you...

F@$! Yeah Lost (sorry about the name, I didn't pick it!) has lots of little posts, usually silly artwork and updates on the cast and future projects they're doing. How can you not love these valentine's day cards?

So let's remember the good times we had with this show. It was ground breaking on so many levels, it was a great ride. I, for one, am thrilled that I was able to share the experience with such great friends.
