Owning a piece of 'Lost': Used wheelchairs and beat up paperbacks? Priceless.
Just 10 days away from "Lost's" final episode, zeitgeist surrounding our favorite show has reached fever pitch: cast members are flooding mags, blogs and talk shows with frustratingly cryptic interviews, the "Lost" Twitterverse is tweeting itself to exhaustion and we're just so hopelessly addicted that we're unable to not make a big deal about anything even peripherally "Lost"-related.
So I'm sure the similarly "Lost" afflicted will appreciate word that scads of actual items from the show will be up for grabs this summer courtesy of auction house Profiles in History. The date is still TBD, but according to press contact Marc Kruskol bidders -- whether on the Calabasas, Calif. auction floor, online or on the phone -- will have equal opportunity to vie for John Locke's Oceanic 815 boarding pass and wheelchair, Hurley's DIY golf course flags, Sawyer's "Dear Mr. Sawyer" letter and copy of "Watership Down," 30 Dharma fish biscuits, THE hatch computer, a set of three Dharma orientation films, Mr. Eko's wooden staff and tons more stuff that will mean a lot to you and other "Lost" fans while simultaneously alienating your civilian friends and family. You can preview about 100 of the items here, but Kruskol says this is just a sampling and much more will be available by the time the bidding starts.
Kruskol also wants to clear the air about some reports that the items are reproductions. "Not true," said Kruskol. "All items are sanctioned by Disney and ABC and were on display at Comic-Con last year."
So there you have it. Nothing left to do but print out the catalog and start figuring out your must-haves. What I'm coveting: Rousseau's island maps and this framed photo of the 1977 Dharma recruits (just a bit more display-friendly than Sawyer's wired together reading glasses.)
If original art is more your style, you may want to take a peek at what appears to be the first comprehensive listing of "Lost" fan art. From T-shirts to "Lost"-themed bento boxes, get your kitsch fix -- or perhaps a little inspiration? -- from some of the show's more imaginative fans. Or, maybe we should say shrewd. These little Hurley and John Locke figurines at right sold at the December 2009 "Lost" underground art show for $815 apiece.
Finally, right on time, Jimmy Kimmel is back with another "Lost" spoof video. This time around he enlisted the help of actors Mark Pellegrino and Titus Welliver (that's Jacob and MIB to you) for a little bit he calls "Connect 4 Million":
