Lost is Great and All

Do NOT get me wrong. I'm a huge fan. But the opening theme song? Yeah the one note is all symbolic and creepy and crap but it could use a do over. 80's prime time drama style a lá Falcon Crest but not quite as good as Dynasty.


Side note, who psyched for tonight's season premiere? Honestly... Gooo WGA!! But the writers need to get back to finishing up the season. Seriously. 8 episodes filmed? Yeah, that'll get us through mid-March and THEN what?

Anyways, some friends and I refreshed our memory of season 3 this past weekend by watching a few episodes and I have heard of other friends doing similar. The biggest question I want answered is "What are those huge 4 toed feet statues? Or who?!?!" Was that even in season 3?

Did you guys know that (one of) the show's creators J.J. Abrams "composed" the main title theme? Music plays a key role in building up the suspense of the show and pop music also takes a roll of sometimes offering clues and sometimes adding to the mood of the charater. Nirvana's Scentless Apprentice, played right before Jack arrives to the Hoffs-Drawlar Funeral Parlor is a perfect example of both. I am impressed that this particular Nirvana song made it to prime time TV.

Guess what I'm starting my DJ set tonight with??!!!!

MP3: Lost - Main Title (YSI)

Took the day off just so I can be all calm for 8pm tonight (sad huh?)and get all the food ready so friends can start to arrive early and enjoy some nice drinks and pasa-palos... bcuz @ 8 is all SILENCE!!!

What I like most about LOST, it gets in your head; a lot of viewer psyche is thought of...

J.J. Abrams is ok with his music selection... i read he's a synth freak and owns a SidStation, not bad.
