Polar Bear's Dirge: dragoninstall's Aloha to Lost

Sunday, May 23rd, 2010 by

Tonight, the series finale of Lost will air.

Marking the show's ending, dragoninstall -- creator of the gleefully incoherent webcomic series Shitcomic -- created this eulogizing picture featuring Lost's famous polar bear.

Polar bear's dirge.

From dragoninstall's posting:

The feeling is hard to place, it's like both going to your best friend's wedding which is stacked with a colossal buffet, but while you're stuffing your face with food a funeral is happening. Not that I think death is all that bad, however...I am stocked full of food for tonight.

The last 5 years of my life, I think I expended at least 25% of my energy thinking, watching, or reading about Lost or literature both closely and distantly related. I know it's the finale tonight, but it hasn't sunk in yet. The motor memory of visiting sites like Lostpedia and Darkufo is going to stay there for a long while after, let alone the absence of the usual weekly podcast with Darlton. Withdrawal is imminent. This picture isn't much, but it's a funny reference to something in the show that I wondered about for a good while. Lost deserves much MUCH more for how much I personally got out of following the show, but I'm happy I was able to at least spare some time to crank something out. Not much else to say. Only a few more hours.... See you in another life, brutha.

This one is for Seth, and Lost fans the world over (and other worlds, too).
