Map of the Lost Island
Hello again chums, Durm Chamine here, Viper Squad Ten's anagramatically-challenged sentient provider of AI beats, logging on in a different styley in lieu of Mr Powersurge.
Reckon it's a good job that Starbuck's on blogging hiatus at the moment, or he'd be doing your nut right now, banging on about the TV show Lost.
And I know that he'd be wetting himself if he saw this, the map of the island, as revealed in glorious luminosity on the hatch wall during shutdown.
Just as well he's not here, then, or he'd be theorising a-plenty, all the way up to the meaning of the question mark.
It's bad enough when he gets drunk. He starts rabbiting about his theories on to anyone too polite to tell him to shut the fruck up. "Well, I've purposefully not been participating in the Lost Experience on the web, blah blah blah, but I just happened to have read this and that about Dharma and Hanso and seen all these fake interviews on YouTube and could you get me an Apollo Candy bar from Forbidden Planet..."
And then he starts going on about nanobots and nanomachines, about how its the only possible explanation which could truly explain everything, from the black cloud security system, the healing, the hallucinations, the mental reprogramming, and its what he's been saying since the first episode of Season 2...
And all this relayed to me via his Knight Industries-style watch.
I know that Starbuck tries not to think about it too much.
I remember him doing way too much research into the Matrix after Reloaded, and then finding himself disappointed when his pet theories didn't feature heavily in Revolutions. Like an idiot.
And I can't help but feel that if I think about it too much the Lost resolution will be a big disappointment. Unless, that is, it isn't! So I'm just watching and enjoying the show, and leaving all the web research well alone. Map excepted.
Gah! You can see the "hatches" and bunkers! You can see the vents for the security system! You can see bits of the island's topography! And now I'm getting crazy-assed ideas going back to Desmond shining the mirror up the shaft, and how that might be sketched in on the diagram!!!
