Great Lost Finale Coverage

I’ve been reading some great coverage on the Lost finale. Since I watched it yesterday, I can now read up on it. First and foremost is the great article over at Wired. The article has a bit of everything, but none of the answers that we’re looking for. Today, I was intrigued by this article over at Vanity Fair. Yesterday, I read up on a few different articles at the New York Times. There were about 4 or 5 different ones that I checked out. Mostly it was about the producers answering some fan questions.

Here are some more thoughts on Lost from Vanity Fair.

So, we have no idea (and it doesn’t matter) why there was a polar bear on the island, or why no children could be born there, or who The Others really were, or why a trip through the light cave turns the Man in Black into an undead, nearly omnipotent, smoky antihero but just sort of makes Jack and Desmond tired. There are probably dozens of other plot points that — to me — were presented as important details but tended instead to be diversionary tactics, or, even worse, not worth the trouble to reconcile and account even in a season which added episodes and gave itself a luxurious 2½-hour finale to wrap up whatever it wanted to.

I couldn’t have said it better myself.

I liked how the series ended the way it started. It’s evident that it came full circle. Did Lost become a soap-opera instead of a sci-fi thriller? Maybe.

Wired and Terminator

Wired and Terminator coverage for the upcoming release of Terminator: Salvation.

The evolution of the Terminator franchise, Terminator as a metaphor for Josh Friedman’s life, and why Terminator is unstoppable.

Joshua Davis Piece Gets Optioned

Kottke reports that the latest Joshua Davis piece on the 100 million diamond heist has been optioned into a movie. I linked to it through Andy’s Waxy Links. It might be directed by JJ Abrams himself. Joshua Davis also wrote High Tech Cowboys of the Deep Seas: The Race to Save the Cougar Ace, which has also been optioned for film.

That’s really cool, since I use both of these texts in my advanced ESL classes. They are great and it’s astounding that these articles are being made into movies. I didn’t know that this actually happened.

I Hate

When my editor tells me that my article/post doesn’t fit into the scope of the site…

Mentally Drained

I feel a bit out of it.

I’ve got another article to finish for tomorrow. It’s completed, but it must be formatted with HTML tags and the like.

I had misread the rules of a contest to become a guest author on another blog/magazine. I thought that it was only a proposal, when it was actually an article. At least the article was short, but formatting it once again took a little while. I just finished a short while ago and I feel like a zombie.

I think that I’m going to have to stick with a strict routine in order to GTD. I usually do my writing in the morning or at night.

Writing posts and articles everyday for money is hard work.
