My name is Bean and this is my blog. Hence the name. If you have comments or questions, just leave them in the comments area.
Lost aired in a slightly-extended episode tonight, leading up to the 2-hour finale next week. The episode was similare to the recent Claire-centric one - the typical Lost flashbacks only went back days, rather than months and years, and showed us more detail on past events, from new points of view. Michael took center stage this time. Also, in related news: since I haven't blogged a non-Lost blog in a while, I'll mix some other stuff in with my sweet recap action.
13 Days Ago
Michaels flashbacks show him communicating with "walt" on the computer some more. He is told to go north. He conks Locke, locks Jack in the gun shed, and hits the road. He's soon captured by the others and questioned for 10 days or so. Eventually, they show him Walt (for 3 minutes) and convince him to make a deal. He has to go back, free Henry, and bring Jack, Sawyer, Hurley, and Kate back to camp, at which point he would be set free, along with Walt. Sayid figures his plan out and tells Jack - now they are planning to use their knowledge to gain an advantage when they attack.
At the end, we see a sailboat drift towards the beach. "We're saved!!!" I'm sure it'll come into play next week. Could it be Desmond? Or atleast his boat?
Stef and I are going to run a 5k Saturday morning in downtown New Albany. Anybody wanna join us? Sunday, we're going to the speedway for Bump Day. I bet the cars go > 3.1 miles. Anybody wanna join us?
Of course, he's devistated with Libby's death. And now, he's being led into a trap by his buddy Michael. The writers sure are setting up for a "hell yea!" scene when Hurley finally get's his revenge or closure on... somthing... er... everything.
Pretty stoked about the Memorial Day canoe trip comign up. Stef and I are heading to the campsite Friday this year for a bonus night of camping. I am excited with the prospect of grilling some smoked sausage links for dinner, cause that there's some good shit.
"They're Not Who They Say They Are"
Walt blurts this out when he's in the tent with Michael. Maybe the whole campsite is a ruse. Could the whole "get the people on this list" thing be another psych experiment? Could that be what happened when "others" kidnapped people before? Maybe they were just people manipulated into doing horrible things. Then agaion, it seems too obvious to actually be true. Or maybe we are so used to *not* knowing what the eff's going on that even when they tell us, we don't buy it.
Zeke, aka Mr. Friendly, aka Seabilly, aka The Captian - whatever his name is - is clearly not in charge. He's also not in shape, but he can sure throw a bola. The think black chick is the big dog in the others' camp, it seems. She needs a nickname.
Cold Room Update
My cold room is back in buisness - holding steady at 37F - thanks to a new AC unit. Did I blog that already? Anyway, Two-Hearted on tap now, with a 3-beer homebrew linup to fill in in a week or so.
That's it for now. I'll link in some more information tomorrow, when the forums are not crawling.

bean (May 18, 2006 at 08:43:45 AM):
the site is part of an online/offline game called "The Lost Experience" - as are the "hanso" commercials that air during lost. Go here for deets:

So..The Black chick had a name I just forget what it was. Was the chick that asked how Claire was the same one that let her go? IS Eco on to Michael? And why those four people? Fuckk you LOST
stef (May 18, 2006 at 09:23:16 AM):
I think she said her name was Mrs. Clue, or maybe it was Miss Clue...either way
SS (May 18, 2006 at 09:36:35 AM):
i believe it was the same chick, and is the french chick's daughter (they called her alex). i think eko is too caught up in pushing th ebutton
SS (May 18, 2006 at 09:36:58 AM):
but oh yeah, his story about the kid killing his dog...so maybe he is on to michael
bean (May 18, 2006 at 01:40:36 PM):
yeah - bigtim weird episode with a lot of character behavior changes. Eko seems obsessed with the button - Hurley wants revenge - Michael is riddled w/guilt, but keep on playing along.

The girl who held Michael and asked about Claire is Alex, Rousseau's daughter.... The black lady's name is Miss Clue...
There was even Charlie again throwing away the statues, and Locke saw him do it -- then he just decided to up and go. We don't know where he's heading either.
And then Claire decided to hold Charlie's hand too at the funeral...
I have a feeling that someone gets snagged by The Others next week. Then the next season we'll either have to wait until they escape, or we see how they're being held, thus learning more about The Others.
Brad (May 18, 2006 at 03:21:22 PM):
I thought Locke was heading to the funeral, but I guess he wasn't there.
bean (May 18, 2006 at 03:38:45 PM):
Locke is pretty upset what with the whole buttno thing. Maybe he's just heading out on a walk. The importent thing to niotice is that his leg healed... in like a week, instead of 6. Wonder if Jack will take note.
bean (May 18, 2006 at 03:59:46 PM):
Also - what was up with the vaccine that Charlie found? I'm guessing it matches the stuff Desmond took. I'm also guessing it's a placebo and another psych experiment to see how long they can get people to blindly inject saline into their body.

As you asked, I clicked on your google ad. What I did not expect was an ad for a center for women with eating disorders. After scrolling the contents of this page, I saw nothing that could relate to eating disorders. Weird and now the site has probably left a cookie on my work pc and everyone's gonna think I have an eating disorder.

"We have just learned that Lost will be aired in the fall with seven consecutive episodes followed by a 13 week hiatus and then the remainder of the season continuing without repeats in the spring."
