Lost Recap

O-M-G, we're 8 days away from Season 6! Everyone was all a twitter (get it - cuz this was all over twitter) about this Italian family that has recreated the last 5 seasons of LOST on video. WHY DIDN'T MY FAMILY DO THIS? Instead we get into public arguments in the middle of Target about whether or not the Nicki and Pablo episode was the best or worst episode of LOST ever.

Special thanks to Nortgemdar for the video tip.

Make your own kind of music

As many of you may know, I am a pretty big fan of the music of Lost. With that said, I figured it would be a good idea to pay homage to the man behind it all, Michael Giacchino:
This guy's awesome. His themes, as simple as they may be, will be ingrained in our memories for years to come, I'm sure. One would normally say that his music fits the scenes perfectly, but I would disagree with that and say that he regularly sets the scene with his music. Take this video from "Through The Looking Glass" as an example. Set it at the 55 second mark and watch it with the sound off. You won't be missing any dialogue as it is only the music playing:

Kind of boring. Now watch it again with the sound on, and you'll damn near cry. I certainly did the first time I watched it. I mean, notice how the piano hits the high F right as Charlie slams "Not Penny's Boat" on the window. That's surely no accident. And that's only one example! Others being Boone's death and Aaron's birth, any time they explore the island, the little motif that plays whenever something mysterious happens, and when the Oceanic 6 first land at Sumba using Penny's life raft. Now, I'm sure I'm not saying anything here that nobody else has realized, but I thought it would be a good idea to say it on record. Michael Giacchino regularly makes one of the strongest scores television has ever seen. There. I said it.

Also, he made the music for The Incredibles. I love that movie.

"Not Everything Will be Answered"

During the LOST panel at ABC's press day everything was about the ending and the final season.

I know that a lot of people do not want to know spoilers - this article does list characters who will be returning, but otherwise not a lot of information. It also talks about the ending already being decided...

They say the premiere of Season 6 is going to blow our minds... think it actually will?

UPDATE: No STOU on Feb 2nd!

Looks like the LOST premiere will air as scheduled, on Feb 2nd.

You can read about it here.

A Week in Review

It's been a big week for LOST and OPM.
First, the rescheduled State of the Union could bump the season premiere on Feb2nd. You can read about it everywhere. Including the Wrap and The Washingtong Post.

I love that this is news. And I love that there's some crazy dude on twitter who started a hashtag urging #NoStateofUnionFeb2. And I love that everyone is reporting that too.

Doesn't this mean nothing to us West Coasters, though? The SOTU airs from 9-11pm EASTERN time. Take that East Coast suckers.

Next up, here at Orange Peel Mouth, we had the pleasure of reading our first blog by our new contributor, Dylan!
Have you heard about the LOST theme park? You can sign the petition HERE.

Then there's the whole LOST supper promo pic.

Lastly, if you're on facebook, you can fan the Constants and see their video of Who Will Go?

First there was Boone....

HI! I'm Dylan, Orangepeelmouth's newest contributor! How's it going? I wanted to do something to honor some of those whom we've lost (get it?) over the past 5 seasons, so I'm going with a good ol' fashioned Caption Contest. We've not had one of those in a while! So, here ya go:

You can't talk about death on the Island without mentioning Boone. Also, Nikki's there just for good measure. So yeah, whatcha got?

So It Begins.

My good buddy Ryan sent me this picture via Wikipedia. Pretty awesome, but for the life of me I can't find a higher quality version anywhere. (UPDATE: bigger version here) Who is that mystery woman on the far left? Ryan says it's Ilana, and I believe him. They don't call him Reliable for nothin'.
