LOST Series Finale Countdown - 32 Days

LOST Clues in Wired Magazine

It looks like the numbers 4 8 15 16 23 42 might be 3 5 23 62 63 66 in the sideways... 23 is the only number that is the same, which we know is Jack. The sum of the sideways numbers is 222.

Also it looks like next episode "The Candidate" is Jack and Locke centric. If you read the notes on the whiteboard there are several moments that appear to be from future episodes.

There's even a 'Squirrel Baby on Board' sign which I have already been designing as a button!

Check out the story here.

Movie of the Day: Kick-Ass

KICK-ASS (2010)

In the summer of 2009 I was one of the fortunate few to see footage from Kick-Ass at their San Diego Comic-Con panel. After viewing the Hit Girl action sequence I immediately bolted from my chair to give it my enthusiastic praise (So much so that screenwriter Jane Goldman pointed at me in awe/disgust). 

Once Kick-Ass finally opened I saw it twice in the first 2 days it was out, and I plan to see it at least a few more times in theaters. It is quickly becoming one of my favorite movies. As a teen movie/super hero origin story/extreme-violence action epic/crass comedy it combines most of my favorite things. And not mention, Nic Cage as the awesomely awkward cherry on top. Kick-Ass is one of those rare movies that not only lived up to my fanboy anticipation, but exceeded it by far! I've got the main theme from the score stuck in my head... I wanna go see it again!

LOST Series Finale Countdown - 44 Days

Movie of the Day: Chinatown

Chinatown (1974)

Polanski's last movie filmed in America before he fled the country. Jack Nicholson thought it would be a good idea to star in and direct a sequel to Chinatown in 1990 called The Two Jakes... most people didn't think it was. Screenwriter Robert Towne originally planned a trilogy of movies involving private investigator J.J. Gittes. The third movie, called Cloverleaf, was to take place in the 1950s and concerned the creation of the L.A. Freeway (That story idea would be used in 1988's Who Framed Roger Rabbit.)
