Psyknife, I hope this explains a strange comment I made about your icon!
Psyknife has a wonderful icon that compares LOST to The Goonies:
Well, I was reading "Goonies" but thinking "Stand by Me" and asked her if that meant that Dom was the Wil Wheaton character, because I seemed to remember Wil's character always had a strap across his shoulder. It wasn't until today that I realized I was thinking of "Stand by Me"!
And what similarities! All on their own, on a journey, not looking for a dead body, but there are plenty around... and... a DANGEROUS BRIDGE! *L*! I have been looking and looking and cannot find a shot where the boys in Stand By Me are shoulder to shoulder, looking across the bridge, like our LOST boys are (and there's another movie to compare to - Lost Boys!), but let me put up what photos I do have for comparison. And let me say: Wil Wheaton's character = Charlie; Jerry O'Connell's character (the chubby one) = Hurley; River Phoenix's character = Jack; but, darn it, Corey Feldman's character does NOT = Sayid... more like Sawyer. *G* So... picspam time! And I encourage any ficwriting that comes out of this (like, what if the four men had to spend overnight on their hike, by a campfire... would the conversations revolve around who is stronger, Spiderman or Superman, or why Pluto and Goofy are both dogs, but one is a pet and one isn't? *G*) And if you find the photo I'm looking for - post it!:
