August's Caption Contest Winner, The September Contest, and Other Stuff

It's all about the "just-in-time" posts over the past few months here on Long Live Locke. It's the last day of September, so that means I can still technically run a "September contest" and keep to my promise of one contest a month until May 2010.

But first, I need to let you know who won the August contest!

This was the image from "The Constant," and below is the panel of judges' favorite entry. Since I took so long to announce the winner, I'm going to give Dharma Beer can koozies to the two runners-up as well.



WINNER

DWTENENT with:

Desmond: "Be my motha lover... brotha."
Justin Timberlake: "It would be an honor to be your new stepfather!"

(If you don't know what the above is in reference to, you really need to watch this Emmy-nominated skit -- if you're not easily offended, that is...)

Yay for DWTENET! He/She gets to pick between a Kate and Shannon action figure... and I will throw in a few koozies as well. Just email me through the site or leave a comment with your email address (I will not publish it) and we can go from there.)

RUNNERS-UP

JEREMY with:

"After only talking a mere thirty seconds with his lover who he had not seen in three years, Desmond was immediately reminded why he left in the first place."

and

DHAMURRAY with:

"Desmond was overjoyed to hear that the last four seasons of The X-Files were saved on Penelope's Tivo."


Thanks to everyone who participated! I really had a great time reading through everyone's responses (you can see them all here) and so I'll most likely run another contest like this one again in the future.

But for today and the September Contest, I'm keeping it simple:

Tell me who your favorite Lost character is in the comments section linked directly below this post, and those who are in positions 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42 will win a set of the Dharma Beer can koozies. I'm going to post responses in batches, so there will be no way for anyone to know what position they might be in before submitting their entry.

(Speaking of, I do intend to write up the event and post some pictures from it, but that will have to wait. In the meantime, check out what Ryan from Zap2it's Guide to Lost said about the night here and here!)

OK, now for the contest rules:

- If you don't want Dharma Beer can koozies, please don't enter. There will be no other prizes offered for this contest.

- This contest is open to anyone in any country.

- Only one submission per person.

- Only entries on this blog via the comments section below this post will be considered -- Tweets or Facebook comments will not. There will be Facebook and Twitter-based contests in the future.


Good luck!


Finally, and this has absolutely nothing to do with Lost... but most of you know that my writing gig for DVD rental company redbox came about because of this blog. So I thought I'd mention that this Friday, shortly after 9 AM EST, I will be doing a live radio spot for redbox on KPAM in Portland. Anyone can tune in to it via the "Listen Live" link on the upper-right of KPAM's site. I'll be talking about new theatrical releases Zombieland and Whip It, as well as titles that are now out on DVD, including Monsters vs. Aliens, The Brothers Bloom and Management.

I'll be back at some point in October with The Numbers contest winners and yet another chance to take home some Lost-related goodies...

My favorite member of our LOST team has to be John Locke

My name is Jodie. said...

Locke, Locke, my man John Locke!

Anonymous said...

Desmond is the best character ever!!!!

JayMac said...

Ben is by far my favourite character. There is no more complex, troubled, mysterious and entertaining character on Lost (and that's saying something!!!) or anywhere, anytime, else on TV.

drew said...

Definitely Frogurt. lol. Actually prolly hurley, I love the big guy.

Johnny said...

John Locke!

Rachel said...

I was just thinking of this very question this week after reflecting on how the most amazing show ever is about to end! Though he started as a "bad" guy Ben has become my favorite. I hope that he finds redemption in S6 like so many of our other favorite characters have. Self-sacrifice maybe? Oh Ben! Oh LOST! You will be missed!

jason said...

Mr. Eko is (was?) my favorite character on LOST. I'm still holding out hope that he will return.

I felt that his redemption story was beautiful, and still think so despite his untimely (and perhaps unfitting) death. I would've loved to have seen that character developed further. His deeply spiritual nature and his bold conviction to do what he believed to be right made him very compelling to watch.

Sawyer

I think the comment I would have had under the Desmond pic would have been,"I'm on a Boat!!"

Anonymous said...

Right ... nobody wants to go first because it isn't fourth.

Favorite character ... because I'm being Anonymous ... how about the guy who Jack's wife Sarah was having an affair with !!! Sarah was gorgeous.

Jesse said...

I thought about this for a while and wanted to come up with a character that gets very little spotlight, but the more I thought, the more Charlie Pace came up. So, even though there will ba a lot of Charlie fans, I'm going to have to say that he IS my favorite. And I say IS, because this is LOST, he could be back. I heard about the Comic-con LOST panel.

But why Charlie? He's fun and in a band. But he also is also wicked passionate about those he holds dearest to him while fighting some rather large inner demons. And when life is on the line, he'll risk it (lose it) to save the one he loves most. The jar of peanut butter was pretty clever too.

If you think about it, these are the kind of people we wish the world had more of.

Jen Barbati said...

Penny and Desmond are my favorites, by far! Hope I'm #4, 8, 15, 16, 23, or 32!

ty said...

Jack!

Alexander said...

Charlie Pace!!!

helkatmat said...

Tim Vaduva said...

Sayid Jarrah

Hurley, even though he is cruel to Hot Pockets.

pamplimousse said...

tiasabita said...

Hurlie!! (a combo character of Hurley &
Charlie)

Jenette said...

I love VIncent and hope we see more of him! I think he has seen a lot and obviously can't say anything! :)

Oswaldo Ortiz said...

Sayid.

sfj3 said...

Mr James Ford!

Mel said...

ben

Laura said...

Toss up between Mr. Eko and Sawyer. Still kind of ticked off that Eko is dead. Hopefully not for long though...

GT said...

Sawyer...who doesn't love a funny "villian" turned good guy?

CuInAnotherLifeBrother said...

Desmond (with Locke & Ben a very close 2nd/3rd)

Miss Lynn said...

Hurley. :)

zen said...

aquaboy1976 said...

neese25@yahoo.com said...

Locke is definitely my favorite character.

Charlie said...

knux25 said...

BBKiddo said...

Bernie said...

mike said...

Mr EKO and his Jesus stick....

Jean-Fran├žois forget said...

Ben Linus!

Kimbydee said...

Hurley! He's just the best. He has the thoughts and actions I would have if I were on the island!
Kim :o)

Rachel said...

Henry Gale....AKA Ben

Feo said...

Richard Alpert!!

Aunt J-ha said...

Without a doubt, Hurley is my all time favorite Lost Character. Since day 1 on the island his one liners had me in stitches then brought me to tears. And this past season, when he had me at hello, he whipped a hot pocket in Ben's direction and later bought all the remaining seats on Ajira 316.

RcCarol said...

My favorite will always be Sayid Jarrah, though there are many others I love too.

shawn said...

Desmond, Hands down!

Kathleen said...

Jack, my all-time favorite spinal surgeon ^^

CathyFitz said...

Hurley! He's really an "everyman".

Anonymous said...

The dreamy Henry Ian Cusick as Desmond, of course.

Amanda Bisignano said...

My favorite character of all time is Charlie!! :D

Pittielover said...

Tie between Hurley and Sawyer with all the best lines :)

Shaun said...

Sayid!

Pecma said...

Have to go with Hurley!

Julie said...

Boy, e, this is a tough one. I'll go with Sawyer - what a 180 he's done and I think Josh is underrated as an actor. Julie

bannanawinnd said...

Oh Wow, We can only pick one?! I believe it has to be Hurley.

Matthew said...

Daniel Faraday =]

dharmagirlbr said...

I love Ben, this last season he seemed so vulnerable!! But I still feel like he still has a couple of tricks up his sleeve. Once a liar...

Hisham said...

Sawyer.

Alisha Rene' said...

My fav LOST character, and perhaps best character EVER, will forever be Benjamin Linus!

DML said...

Desmond Hume.......

Charlie said...

My favorite character is and always will be John Locke!

Chris B. said...

How to choose? I love them all! If I have to pick, I guess, I'll say Daniel. But how can you not love, Locke, Hurley and Sawyer, too?

Akadick said...

If this is the Chris B that I hope it is, Chris B is my favorite. Oh wait...on Lost? Locke has always been the most interesting of all but how can you resist Ben?

AJayS said...

DANIEL FARADAY! :D
