i don’t watch lost. i’ve never had a whole lot of interest in the show, i tried watching the first season, and about halfway through i just got kind of annoyed with the characters so i gave up. but i really like lost. or more so the idea of lost.

i love how many people are so into this show. that have watched every episode [probably multiple times] and have come up with theories as to what every little thing means. i overheard many of these yesterday while working the series finale event at the theater. and as someone who has no reference point as to what anything means, hearing things about smoke monsters, time travel and polar bears all sounds pretty ridiculous. and i can’t help but laugh. but it’s really awesome to see people get excited about something. legitimately excited and interested about something. and then to have a group of people to have to talk about it with makes it even better.

when the last five minutes were getting ready to start, pedro and i ran in to catch it and see if it was going to turn into a Dallas series finale. which was what i was hoping for. but as expected, we had no clue what the hell was going on. or what anything meant. but i enjoyed watching those 460 people watching these final moments of the show. everyone was so attentive, and the anticipation in the room was so high.

standing there made me think of my dad telling me about the series finale of M*A*S*H. that it was an really important moment in his personal history. and ultimately in television history too. though i’ve never watched either show in great depth, i can appreciate anything that creates that sense of community for so many people.

lost seems to be one of those shows that has brought back the ritualistic nature of television. and any show that can do that is pretty awesome in my book. and probably worth a second shot.


come on, june.

may has been a pretty shitty month.  and i’m really looking forward to it being over, i’m trying to be optimistic that june holds better things.

i think it will.

but the one thing that has made me feel a lot better about everything is this video.  which apparently i can’t actually post [thanks vimeo]. but click on the link. it’s totally worth it, and amazing, and if you don’t smile/giggle uncontrollably/oooo and ahhhh through at least 90% of it you have no soul.

just sayin.

here’s a hint:

bite the bullet.

i have had the same 35mm camera since i was 13 years old. and have recently taken it off it’s place on my shelf and into my bag where it used to live.

it’s pretty amazing that i’ve had it for so long, and it has travelled with me to so many place and is still truckin’ along. it does have a light leak in it now, but i’m really excited to see what happy mistakes it decides to make.

is that thing real?

yeah it is.

i don’t think you understand how enormous those dinosaurs were. or how fun it can be to hear hundreds of kids freak the fuck out when the t-rex emerges.

worth every single penny.
