I dunno about other Losties, but I’ve been hankering to get my paws on some of those Dharma props used in the series. Could be a box of cereal or a six pack of brew. Doesn’t matter. I just need something as compensation for enduring six seasons of unanswered questions and frustrating tangents. Luckily, the powers that be have made my wish a reality by holding an official Lost auction and exhibit. Here’s a breakdown from the press release:
“LOST” The Official Show Auction and Exhibit will take place in southern California at the Barker Hangar in the Santa Monica Airport on Saturday, August 21 and Sunday, August 22. ABC Studios, in partnership with Profiles in History, will conduct a live and online auction featuring the iconic props, wardrobe and set decoration of the Emmy Award-winning television series. Along with the auction, ABC will be offering fans an opportunity to immerse themselves in all things “LOST.” Large set pieces from the show will be on display, including a Dharma van and pieces of the plane wreckage from Oceanic flight 815. Other memorable props and wardrobe will also be featured.
Hooray! I’m as happy as Hurley with a stash of ranch dressing. And look, it’s being held in a hangar. Real subtle auction organizers. I bet there were a lot of high-fives going around the room when that idea was broached.
Now all I have to do is get to Santa Monica. I’d take a plane but I’m petrified it will crash on a strange island inhabited by polar bears, smoke monsters, douchebag scientists and some black kid who whispers a lot. Oh well. There’s always eBay.
