As you should know On the Oceanic Press Release located here http://www.flyoceanicair.com/. It lists the cities that Oceanic will be flying to. If you go here http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=lost+billboards you can see photos people have taken of actual real life billboards in the cities. Its very interesting that a show is able to spend the $ put up fake billboards. It has yet to be seen how much of a clue they are. I was also thinking of the cities that there will be flights to.
Los Angeles, CA - This is where Shannon and Jack are from ( as well as Nikki). Also where Shannon's dad dies.
Tustin, CA - Locke is from here. Hurley's Box company is here (where Locke worked of course).
Ames, IA -Kate is from Iowa. I am not sure the town.
Miami, FL - Juliet is from here. (It took me a while to figure that one out.)
New York, NY - Michael and Walt are from here. (Rose and Bernard are from New York State)
Portland, OR - This is where Ben Linus (Henry Gale) was born and also I believe where Juliet went to work for the company.
Knoxville, TN - This is where Anthony Cooper the real "Sawyer" lived when Sawyer (James Ford) wrote him the letter.
This is the first of probably many more Lost posts to come.
If you have somehow missed it Lost has released some new info. The first part was the Oceanic Press release followed by the commercial both available here http://www.flyoceanicair.com/ . The Lost team is genius since they actually played the commercial on t.v. like a true airline would. I would not even know about this except my sister actually saw one playing during a Twilight Zone Marathon! It's really quite effective because so many people I know who are a bit ho-hum about Lost have gotten really excited with the onslaught of new info.
There is also this website http://www.find815.com/site/index.php#Scene_1 featuring much more of Sam and his story. Find815.com keeps having new information added. If you play little games or find clues and it reveals more information. If you look in the bottom right hand once you have gotten through some of the current stuff it will tell you how long until the Lost creators add new content. They will be adding more content until just 2 hours before the premier on the 31st of January!!! This is interesting because after the first ARG they denied there would be any more. I wonder if this is due to the fact that we may get an abbreviated season due to the writers strike?
My major resolution this year is going to be to try and only use reusable bags. I have the cloth Whole Foods bags like everyone else and I have a few other cotton totes but I don't always use them. I bought a small cotton bag the other day that fits in my purse and I have used it at least 5 times in the very short amount of time I have had it. Its so much easier when you are checking out and when you reach for your wallet you see the bag. I really encourage everyone to try and cut down on their plastic bag use. I think I am going to get these at some point. They are just so small and it looks like it would be easy to keep a couple on you most of the time. Also many stores are starting to offer refunds if you use your own bags and some stores like Ikea are starting to charge per bag you use so this seems like a good time to get with the program so to speak.
