The new Lost is here, the new Lost is here
Notes from the Official Lost podcast, January 9, 2006 with executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse. iTunes link. You can probably get to it from ABC, if you're some sort of genetic freak not using iTunes.
This episode discusses scoring and previews Wednesday's show, "The 23rd Psalm."
The official podcast has been a little disappointing, but I'll keep listening. I'm not looking for spoilers, just something more than two guys talking about nothing or revealing the obvious. Here's what we find out about "The 23rd Psalm":
- Mr. Eko backstory (we've known that for weeks)
- The monster is back (cool!)
- "There will be one sequence, specifically one shot where I'd get your video players, DVRs, what have you, ready for that sequence. There will be a lot of chatter about what it means. Having seen some of the theories of what the monster means, this will confirm some people's theories and confound other people. I think this will had a level of understanding to how the monster functions."
- listener question: is the music important? "...stuff about Mama Cass...There is stuff coming up in the next couple weeks. You might wan to keep your eyes peeled for Geronimo Jackson's audacious debut. They're a band not a lot of people have heard about. They just pressed one very obscure album in the mid to late 70s. We enjoy unearthing songs that are not the type of things you hear on oldies radio. They help us establish the mood and the setting; the period that the hatch was built.
- listener question: Why did you waste four weeks trying to open the hatch, Boone dies in the process and there's a back door 20 feet away that really isn't hidden? And if you say that door could only be open from the inside too, then I say it would have been easier to open that door than the hatch. You know what? You're right, you're totally right. We're completely busted. There are only two conclusions: we're idiots or the characters are idiots, take your pick.
Geronimo Jackson must be very obscure, because I find no mention of them anywhere. Could be a fake band. Even if real, this is probably being mentioned as a red herring.
Update:Received an email from Greg at Begging to Differ that the band name may have been misstated: I think they meant Geronimo Black, founded by one of the members of the Mothers of Invention. One of their songs is called "Other Man." So obscure I couldn't find a copy, though. He'll have a post later today (Wednesday).
Geronimo Jackson doesn't seem to exist, but here is Geronimo Black.
