Pre Launch Hype
-Paul Scheer (a real life comedian) appeared at the 2009 Comic Con Lost Panel and presented Damon and Carlton with a black velvet painting of them and a polar bear and advertised the Damon Carlton and a Polar Bear website.
-Media outlets received a letter from Paul a few days after Comic Con and a print of the art piece. Also letting them know that he will be selling more pieces on August 15th.
Image Image Image
-Then on DCPB.com there were posts from an assistant of Ronie Midfew Arts trying to contact him, letting him know that he was in violation and needed to cease and desist. They also insist on him not selling any pieces. -The same media outlets that received the note from Paul, now received one from Ronie Midfew Arts.
Image
-Paul found out from a connection at ABC that his art piece was in the trash so he set out to go to ABC. He told us he found something very interesting while there and then he uploaded this video.
-His video revealed the title of Season 6, Episode 1 and 2 to be "LA X" as well as a set design.
Image
-RonieMidfewArts.com updated their site with a message to their visitors and Paul.
Image
-Doc Arzt did a podcast with Paul himself. -Howie from The World of Howie was able to sit down with Paul to do an interview. -A Ronie MidFew representative went to Paul's house and they had a discussion. The rep invited Paul to meet Ronie at 4:08pm on 8/14 to meet with Mr. Midfew. -Paul met with Ronie. It seems to have gone well and he has exciting news to come later. -RonieMidfewArts.com is updated.
Image
-Paul releases his big news to us. Himself, Darlton and Ronie Midfew have joined forces to work on a project and bring us something big.
Image
-The DamonCarltonandaPolarBear.com was updated. Here is their (RMA and DCBP.com) plans according to the website:
In celebration of LOST's final season and as a project of fan appreciation, 16 top designers and artists, who are also fans of the show, were commissioned to create artwork celebrating one of the series' most memorable, and unforgettable, "water cooler" moments. This ultimate "fan art" was then turned into labor intensive, hand-pulled screen prints, limited to an edition of just 300, with less than 200 available to the public through our websites. Each beautiful poster tells its own different story, allowing the fan to relive memorable and influential moments in an artistic manner, as the show's storied run comes to a close. Once this limited edition print has sold out, they will never be printed again. Celebrate the fandom, community and family created by one of televisions' greatest shows by hanging a little part of it's history, inspiration and influence on your wall.

Thanks for this thread.

Has somebody checked the KIA website if there are hidden messages? Which is their "leading" product?

Im guessing hes talking about Paul Scheer


This reminded me of the beach scene with Jacob and his enemy. Guy in black wants to kill guy in white. In the video Damon (in black) wants to kill someone, and Carlton is in white.

Although before that quote I was assuming he was just talking about offing a character in the show ;)

Fantastic summary, laezydaezy. :thumbsup:

I don't trust the "title page of S6E1" discovery. Darlton have always been strongly anti-spoiler, and they're clearly in on this Paul Scheer thing, so I think that's a bit of misdirection.

One of the main things I noticed about the latest video is Paul's diagram of the ABC lot. I'd like to see a comparison of that and Radzinsky's blast door map, or some of Faraday's notebook diagrams.

I highly doubt that is name of the first episode of season 6 for the fact that is was shredded and put in the garbage.

Don't know if anyone has noticed this yet, or if it has any meaning, but I was looking at some of the names of the people behind all the letters and stuff and came up with something interesting. I posted it the other day but never saw a reply. In light of the most resent videos and such, I feel I need to re-post it so here goes:

Anagrams:

These are a couple of ones that I never saw anyone mention.
So look for yourselves but you will find that they fit.

Ronie midfew arts = Mid War Reset Info

Alexandra Miller (assistant to Ronie Midfew)= Remainder All LAX

Both of these are very interesting to me how bout' you?

If the title LA X is a spoiler for Darlton then all those reset/alternate timeline comic con videos are as well and they wouldn't have showed them.

The t-shirt Paul is wearing is for Scott Pilgrim that is being filmed in Toronto. Based on a comic book.

Scott becomes obsessed with a girl that delivers for Amazon and uses a subspace portal to make deliveries in seconds. She also has a subspace purse that they can climb into.

I say roll on the 15th... or 16th, sounds like we're going to get more of this around then. As for the LA X thing, I thought that normally the airport is just spelt as LAX?

Thanks for this thread, Laezy. :thumbup:

I have no idea what to make of the episode "title." I want to think all of the reset references are a red harring, just for the purposes of the ARG. This is so fascinating/frustrating. :lol:
