Phantasmic Links 5.24.10

LOST. Sure, I played a lot of music this weekend with two different bands, but the most significant portion of the weekend was the six hours I spent in front of the television saying goodbye to that show after six years. There was closure, and there were answers, and there were more questions, and there was ambiguity, and in the end, it was both satisfying and sad. The cast and the characters have always been a strong point of the show, but more than ever I realized it was all about the score. Every time there was a montage of memories and sad music, that music got to me. I'm still processing it all, and will likely have more to ramble on about, but now is the time for this week's PHANTASMIC LINKS:

(1) A little “unnecessary censorship” from Jimmy Kimmel shows a very different LOST from the one I remember.

(2) Here's Josh Holloway's next project now that LOST is done. It's probably sad that I subsequently went online to see if they were really making that movie, but in my defense I'd just driven home from a gig in Queens in record time to sit in front of the television for six hours.

(3) In terrifying astronomical news, a star was observed consuming its offspring.

(4) With MakeUseOf.com, I'm posting a link to a site full of useful links, which may themselves contain links, and there's no telling how far down this rabbit hole of an internet goes.
Hat Tip: J-No.

(5) Can you figure out what to do in the various interactive videos of the Self Control Freak?

(6) This dude is to be commended for the detail he put into his War Machine armor.
H.T.: B13.

(7) Fringe fans will appreciate the show's attention to detail in commissioning these alternate universe DC comic book covers.

(8) These “lost” issues of The Brave and the Bold show some team-ups I wish we really could have seen....

(9) Megan Fox will not be returning for Transformers 3. Damn. Looks like we need new eye-candy. There was the robot chick from the second movie, or maybe we can get closer to original continuity and bring in Carly Witwicky?

(10) Robot Wants Puppy, and with the help of a kitty and some upgrades, you just might get him to succeed. Keep an eye out for special achievements and one tricky secret section...

Have a link to a game, movie, article, or anything else you think might be “phantasmic”? E-mail me and it just might appear in an upcoming PHANTASMIC LINKS!
