Friendly reminder that Desmond named his son Charlie. ✿◕‿◕✿
People don’t post about the Bohawk ever. No one knows why he had this brief style in 1997, but with his work with Eno soon after, it can only be assumed that they attempted a hair transplant.
LOST (September 22, 2004 - May 23, 2010)
“This is a place that you… that you all made together so that you could find one another.The most important part of your life was the time that you spent with these people on that island. That’s why all of you are here. Nobody does it alone, Jack. You needed all of them, and they needed you.”
The job of good speculative fiction is to make some kind of statement about the human condition. Darlton’s brilliance was to illustrate their statement using not just the show, but their fanbase. What’s their statement? That spending your life trying to find out the answers to the big questions is a disappointing and ultimately fruitless use of your time on this Earth: every answer will be disappointing, or will just lead to more questions, and that’s assuming there actually is an answer. The value of a human life is in the connections we make, with family and friends and other human beings. Within the show, this is illustrated through the characters and their eventual fates. Compare Daniel (trying to unlock secrets of the universe) and Locke (determined to unravel the mysteries of the Island) to Kate (adopting Aaron), Sawyer (devoting himself to keeping the time-travelling Losties safe and getting everyone off the Island) and Jack (sacrificing himself to save everyone else). But the REAL brilliance is that this statement was even more perfectly illustrated by fan reactions to the Grand Finale. The fans who were only concerned with getting answers to the mysteries were disappointed and wound up regretting their time spent watching the show. The fans who were more concerned with the characters and their journey thought the finale was fantastic and moving.
In honor of today being the Lost finale anniversary. This to me sums up the show better than anything I’ve ever seen, and it explains why I will probably punch you if you try to tell me the finale sucked.
whenever I buy an illustrated Bowie book I always get the same one out from the library so I can bend it any which way to scan w/o worrying I’m going to leave my book in anything but pristine condition ｡◕‿◕｡
