Did you love it? Did it disappoint you? What are your theories?
Personally, I thought it was fantastic because it's finally becoming so much more beyond the same "bubble" of people on just one island. It feels like WORLDS have just opened up and now I KNOW that this show is going to evolve way beyond what anyone ever expected! It feels like the show REALLY does have some "staying power" that many critics and viewers were unsure that it could have.
I think that Desmond is still alive [I hope so, because he and Sayid are "my men!" ].
I also think that possibly "Henry Gale" and "the others" are a DIFFERENT "others" than what we think...that they might be "good guys" and that they nabbed Kate, Jack and Sawyer to help them fight against "the ACTUAL bad guys." I think that Michael and Walt probably WILL come back to help out...possibly unwillingly. AND there's a whole supernatural side to the island that is still a huge "?".
Also, I have a feeling that Penelope's dad may be involved with Hanso somehow...
All I know is that I've got to buy Season 1 and watch it all over again this summer, because now I just KNOW that tons of hidden clues are buried everywhere, and watching the first seasons again [Season 2 will probably come out on DVD before Season 3 kicks in] will probably make the clues way less hidden, now that we know how the first 2 seasons end...
Good stuff. I haven't really been THIS hooked on a show since The Buffy Years.
We got some front-page press this week
[Press release was written by me...I think I must be getting a little better at writing press releases, huh]?
It's really amazing that this type of thing seems to happen EVERYtime I start to entertain even just an OUNCE of doubt. The Universe keeps nodding at me: YES, you were meant to do this. YES, you're doing everything right. YES, even when you don't do things right, it's all good because you're so kickass at learning from mistakes. YES, keep going. YES, dreams do come true.
Two Big Events Planned So Far:
Bauhaus/Nine Inch Nails concert in two weeks - WOOOOOT!
Mom and Dad Rochon [my folks] visiting us the week of July 4th. YAY!
Life in the Now
I have a job interview at 3:00. It's with my current company in a different department....not sure that it will pay more, but hoping that it will. Loving the job description. It could be just what I need to move forward in the day-to-day life. I am totally open right now...
G and I have decided to start sending our demo to record labels. We cannot do all of this alone anymore. We're getting stretched too thin, and we need some help. We don't want a "major," just a decent indie that will take us as ARTISTS and help us grow. Yes, I DO believe that these labels exist...as a matter of fact, my "gut" is speaking to me about two in particular. In HEAVY research mode right now...and yes, we'll make SURE we get a good attorney, should a contract present itself...and I believe it will. Until then, the full length CD is going slowly, but surely. We've finished shooting for the Fantomatique video, and the editing process has begun. I just need to enjoy the PROCESS and not get all stressed out about all of the unknowns. This is ART. It's what I ENJOY. It's my passion, and what I was BORN to do. I'm not going to let all of this self-imposed pressure start to rob me of that joy. That's my promise to myself right here, right now in front of all [two] of you.
I've had to PEE really badly all day today. It's nerves. I can't believe I've got a job interview...it happened when I least expected it, of course! But it's nice considering a new job at a time in my life when I'm not really feeling desperate or bitter about my current job situation. So...yeah, this should be good.
