nothing much yet, still LOST

Not working today, but not much drive to search the news yet.

I’m still reeling over last night’s LOST finale. Trying to untangle the time lines in my head. Attempting to figure out if either reality was the reality, or if it was both. And was there a third one, finally ... because the people who flew off on Ajira Air went back to where? They could not have flown off to continue their lives in the alternate reality. Or maybe they just flew off into the sunset and ceased existing, once they were over the event horizon.

The Claire/Charlie awakening was only surpassed by the Sawyer/Juliette one, which was epic. I’m smelling Emmys here, or whatever TV-land awards apply for Best Scene. And in the end, the long end, the new protector was Hurley, which we all realized was going to happen about 5 episodes ago. But I never expected his #2 to be who it turned out to be ... not because of who it was, but because of who it was: a non-evil, non-manipulative Ben Linus, who didn’t drink the magic water, who wasn’t out for personal power and domination.

You can’t accept the simplistic solution for the series that everyone was dead the whole time and that this show was a record of their time in purgatory. Yeah, that works at a simple physical level ( as if purgatory is bound by physical laws ) because no one survives falling out an airplane going 500mph half a mile up in the air, but throws away the depth of the entire series. No, I’ll take the magical island as real, and Daniel Faraday’s math as accurate ... which means Juliette did set off the bomb which created the alt reality, a universe whose walls were thin at times and allowed certain people to suddenly taste and remember an entire life spent in another universe and what that all meant ... and the show ended in a final, different flash forward into yet another alt universe. One completely outside of time, one that served as a final doorway.

On the other hand, last week we learned that alternate timeline corrupt cop Ana Lucia “isn’t ready yet”. To come into the light. And if that isn’t a dead giveaway (Ok, pun intended that time) that the alt world was a pleasant bit of Muzak for souls on Hold, then I don’t know what was. So the questions are answered, but they aren’t really. Or they only generate more questions.

I predict that Amazon is going to sell a whole lot of DVDs for this series. It’s reason enough to go out and get an HD TV and a Blue-Ray player. In light of the ending (no pun intended) the entire series needs rewatching. While taking notes.

I think it may all come down to what you are willing to believe. As Miles said in his last line, “I don’t believe in much, but I do believe in duct tape.” It’s hard to beat that.

Namaste.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
