First of all, thank you to all that donated. Even that guy from Brazil who donated 55 cents. When I first set the donation goal to $1000 (as a joke), I thought that I really wouldn't get anything, turns out I was wrong. Your generosity is appreciated by me and I'm sure will be appreciated by the children who will benefit from your donations.

Second, I'd like to thank all those who stayed with me in the chat channel all those early mornings and late nights. I'm sure I'll forget someone here, I certainly don't remember all your names exactly and in no particular order:

NZ Matt
and last but not least DarthJeremy

To all of you still hanging out in the channel, that is totally awesome and you are kings among men.

Additional special thanks go to:

Alex and Vicky for both lending me the Blu-Rays and not pretending you didn't know me even when I cried through the finale.

Alexis Bosse for being the first to donate even if it was a dollar. Seeing you go to work and sleep twice before sleeping once myself was kind of cool.

Andrew for his occasional guest appearances and food delivery.

My parents for their enthusiasm for the idea and for the food and shelter they provided me.

Lostpedia for both existing and pimping me out a few times. It helped quite a bit.

Dan from Universal Record Database for his support and encouragement throughout the project.

Darlton for not completely fucking the finale up.

Until the next marathon guys. Hopefully that one will be shorter or something because this one was pretty devastating by season 6.

A Little Bit About Child's Play

I thought I'd take this week off from Lost as an opportunity to talk a little bit about my charity of choice: Child's Play.

Child's Play was founded in 2003 by Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik as a way for the gaming community to show that gamers are people with a propensity to do real good. As I previously mentioned, Child's Play's main objective is to deliver games and toys to children's hospitals worldwide. This is made possibly primarily through internet donations like the one I hope you will make. In 2009, a total of $1,780,870 was contributed to the Child's Play cause, helping almost 70 hospitals from US to Australia to Egypt.

Every penny that you donate using the ChipIn widget is put directly into the PayPal account of this wonderful organization, so please give what you can. More information about Child's Play, including an FAQ and tax information, can be found here.

Only 3 weeks away now. Can't wait.

Welcome to the Lost Marathon

For those that don't already know, my name is Peter Wilson and I am a 21 year old student that lives in Montreal, Canada. On May 18th, 2010, I am going to begin my attempt to earn the world record for watching all of the television series Lost in the shortest amount of time. What I mean by watching the series in the shortest amount of time is that immediately before the first episode begins I will begin timing myself and I will stop timing myself once I have finished watching the final episode of the series. This will include time the time I use sleep and eat. This will take me approximately five days, during which I will have to watch around 5500 minutes of Lost which comes out to about 91 hours, just under 4 days. Whilst I am watching Lost I will be video streaming my experiences on uStream and participating in a live chat. This will also allow the world record to be verified by the Universal Record Database (

Since I have announced my intention to perform this world record attempt, many have asked me why I'm going to do this. There are now many reasons for me to do this, but the reason that occurs to me as the most important is that I am doing it in promotion of the Child's Play Charity ( Child's Play is a charity organization that raises money with the goal of buying toys for children who are sick in hospitals worldwide. Most, if not all of us know a young child who has had extensive medical care and we all know that long stays at a hospital are not pleasant. I believe that making their stay at these hospitals a much more pleasant experience is an idea that all of us can get behind. So please, amidst the excess and frivolity of watching 121 episodes of television, remember that donating a little for this cause is always an option.

On a less serious note, the original reason I considered doing this is to, in a way, honor a series which I have been following for years. Since the beginning of the show, it's showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have emphasized the fact that Lost is a story with a beginning, middle and end. Lost is a pretty epic achievement in serialized storytelling and I think it would be thrilling to be amongst the first to experience what the series feels like as a cohesive story. Also, the glory of watching it in world record time doesn't hurt either.

I have work to do,

Peter Wilson
