Poster Madness Continues.



Here's recap on the goings on over at
DamonCarltonandaPolarbear.com






FRAME 8
:




This partial picture clue led us to this website that showed the full picture of this first clue...http://www.dgph.com.ar/










My research brought me to: Fair Wind to Java is a 1953 American adventure film directed by Joseph Kane and starring Fred MacMurray, Vera Ralston, Robert Douglas and Victor McLaglen. An American sailor voyages to search for diamonds on a volcanic island but has to contend with mysteries, pirates and an exploding volcano.
But we soon discover that we are really directed to...


"Parque Patricios, BA" which is a district of Buenos Aires.
Yay! Off to Argentina!

A couple of totally awesome artists create this piece incorporating the URL.

On the poster you can find “Deus Ex Machina” printed at the bottom of the island.









 
Cheng mentions to Jack the janitor that “LaFleur is a good man and runs a very tight operation” in the episode Namaste.

FRAME 9

This hunt begins with the image of two feet and an apple.











A clue to a recording mic on a mac computer.







Note: This is a
Shure KSM32 S/L condenser mic.





This artwork is for the artist 88 Keys and his disk “The death of Adam”, released November 11, 2008.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Death_of_Adam





Research on 88 Keys and The Death of Adam leads me to:
Charles Misodi Njapa
, better known by his stage name 88-Keys, is an American record producer and rapper.

Decon- 84 Wooster Street. #503 Ny Ny 10012 212-343-8486
Decon Records is a New York based independent record label founded and operated through Decon Media, Inc. Founded in 2000 as a film production house.
Note: Although the mic in the clue is a Shure KSM32 S/L condenser mic, I'll note that Wikipedia lists the equipment used in recording this album and an AKG C 414-B – ULS recording mic was used.


Picture clue to Polo Life Thursday
http://polo67life.com/





88 Keys has a blog titled “I heart my polo lifestyle”- Ralph Lauren-Cape Lounge.
At one point the HUB showed us clocks for four time zones: New York, Los Angeles, London and Adelaide.




This all leads us to the 88 Keys recording of Baggage Claim with the URL reveal right in the song. This was friggin brilliant!!
You can listen to the song here : Baggage Claim by 88 Keys









 
Lyrics to Baggage Claim:

Uh, yeah! My name is 88-Keys & that’s the name you’ll see on the manifest on Ocean Flight 815. We’ve been Lost for a few weeks now. I don’t think anybody’s coming for us. Man… I remember this like it was yesterday; When I lost my bag on day one.
1st Verse:
I woke up from a concussion
With sand on my feet
No futher discussion
I’m a son of a beach
Where’s my briefcase?
It was in reach
I gotta drill these people
Just like a prez before he gets impeached
Let me go straight to the liar & pack rat
Scratch that
Take it to the man
With the desire for that hatch
Locke – Don’t give me that
Philosophical crap
I know is gonna spew
From you esophagus track
Just tell me where my box is
Before I let everybody know
You couldn’t use your limbs
Where your sock is
Save it!
I’ll just ask Sawyer
Now let’s face it
He’ll say he didn’t take it
So now I gotta go to Kate
To sweet talk Sawyer
Just to get my briefcase
For a kiss like cheap dates
Sawyer doesn’t have it
Nobody said they grabbed it
Now they’re all acting like
I’m chasing down a white rabbit like Jack did
Chorus:
My bag got lost
So now I’m looking for it
My bag wasn’t found
I got tooken for it – Lost
Have you see it
Anywhere around here? – Lost
Tell me if you see it
When the ground clears
I’m not taking orders from Jack
Like I’m his soldier
I don’t trust Katie
As far as my arms could throw her
Expect the unexpected
When they do drop bombs so

2nd Verse:
Gotta investigate this matter further
This madam that I never heard of
Using words
So absurd to
Me & everybody else
Except for Shannon
Distress calls
Who got balls like cannon?
To tell me where my briefcase is
How ’bout you Michael?
You know us brothers gotta
Stick together
I tried to play the race card
But my plan faultered
The only one he’s cares about
His lil’ man Walter
That’s the kid
Who could
Make reality
Alter
I ain’t messing with him
So I slid
Back to Shannon
Just to see if I could find Sayid
And he’s over there
Talking to Boone
Let me see if I could get closer
And get the scoop like a spoon
I heard him say,
“Stay the Hell away from my sister!”
Mr. Overprotective brother
Not only does he lover her but he used to kiss her… Under the covers
Chorus:
My bag got lost
So now I’m looking for it
My bag wasn’t found
I got tooken for it – Lost
Have you see it
Anywhere around here? – Lost
Tell me if you see it
When the ground clears
I’m not taking orders from Jack
Like I’m his soldier
I don’t trust Katie
As far as my arms could throw her
Expect the unexpected
When they do drop bombs so

3rd Verse:
Now I searched all over the island
For my stuff
Man it’s rough
When these dead bodies are piled in
There’s only so much
That Jack can do
With polar bears running through the forrest
Attacking you
Now let’s not forget Claire
She needs the prenatal
Care – Make the wrong move
And Charlie makes it fatal?
I’m not really here for friends
Just my bag
I don’t care about you, your drugs
Or Drive Shaft
Now why did Sun laugh
If she only speaks Korean?
There’s something she ain’t telling
There’s something Jin ain’t seeing
She making ginseng
Just to poison human beings
And everybody on the cave & beach
Disagreeing
I should’ve asked Hurley
Early
‘Cause he took a head count
He knows everybody on the island
I described my baggage
He said he knows who had it
Now we gotta figure out
Why Ethan’s name wasn’t added to the manifest
Chorus:
My bag got lost
So now I’m looking for it
My bag wasn’t found
I got tooken for it – Lost
Have you see it
Anywhere around here? – Lost
Tell me if you see it
When the ground clears
I’m not taking orders from Jack
Like I’m his soldier
I don’t trust Katie
As far as my arms could throw her
Expect the unexpected
When they do drop bombs so

Shouts:
· Needlz – for producing this crazy beat. The beats he gave to me to get this song done are C-R-A-Z-Y!!! If I was a grimy dude, I’d probably put out another 88-Keys album… Entirely produced by Needlz (whether he’d like it or not). (Don’t laugh! You’d be surprised how often that happens with songs). *smh*
· Irko (The Audio Nutrionist) – for blessing me, once again, with an awesome mix. He knocked this out in the matter of minutes practically. Needlz’ tracks are heavily layered so you could just imagine what Irko had to go thru to get this sounding proper. (”What’cha say Hammer? Proper!” – Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest -)

Rousseau's Transmission
by Dan McCarthy

Dan McCarthy's website is danmccarthy.org/






















You have to click on the poster to zoom into the bubble dialog...
"Je suis seul sur cette ile ..ils sont tous morts"
Which translates to- "I am alone on this island ...they are all dead"






* In the episode 316 Kate tells Jack, as she refers to Christian's shoes, “Those don’t much sense for the island. You might want to consider hiking boots”.
* The modern piano has 36 black keys and 52 white keys for a total of 88 keys (seven octaves plus a minor third, from A0 to C8). Older pianos only have 85 keys (seven octaves from A0 to A70).


Rousseau's Transmission is the poster that spoke to me. Due to the lovely economy and my lack of cash, I had been holding out for the poster I could relate to. After the link was up only a couple of short moments I excitedly went to click to Buy Now and learned it had just SOLD OUT.
The poster craze has hit the LOST community BIG TIME. This is all very exciting and has understandably led to some great team work between fans to ensure their single purchases or to complete their collections.
The thing that makes me a bit sad is that the posters have shown up on eBay and other sites for sale. I personally don't want to purchase a poster this way because I feel the fun and goal of this hunt is to "stake your claim" {purchase your poster} at the checkout link. Of course I completely understand it's the "fastest finger" that has their purchase go through.
Since discovering that bit of information about the posters on eBay and such, I feel the odds are against me in purchasing one of the posters. I have officially given up my quest to acquire these LOSTASTIC posters. But that hasn't stopped me from actively participating in the scavenger hunt. After all you know how much I love hunting for clues!!
I realize I am a little behind in posting my notes but I am current on my participation in the hunt. I find Frame 10 and Frame 11 to be very, very curious.

Until the next one...

Love to all who are "LOST"™
