Most of you are too well aware of my undying love of Lost and all its wonky time-travelin' hokey pokey. I can't get enough of it, and with the series finale looming on Sunday's horizon, my feelings are appropriately mixed. On one hand, I'm still so emotionally invested in the series that the 2.5-hour behemoth finale will likely play in the same way any other episode has: With me perched on the edge of my seat, ready to fall down dead from overexcitement at any moment. On the other hand, it's the end. Fin. No more after that, no spinoff series, and thusfar, no other show raising its hand as a likely candidate for replacement (oh, the irony). Sorry, Fringe. No can do, FlashForward. Many have tried, but those are some massive four-toed sandals to fill, y'know what I'm sayin'?
So like any obedient daughter of iTunes, whose general behavior falls in the muddy area between Generations X and Y, I've chosen to mediate my experience through a mix. It's a Lost mixtape in digital form, an ode to those wayward castaways, those myriad plot twists, and those innumerable (and inscrutable) theories. If you'll be right there with me weeping until the very last second on Sunday night, then feel free to snag the mix here.
For everyone else, sorry kids, but you sure missed out. Luckily, the complete box set is as inevitable as it is sure to be a money-raking juggernaut so if you feel compelled to hole yourselves up for a few (dozen) hours to see what all the fuss was about, you know I'll be there with bells on.
