On behalf of the DeGroots, Alvar Hanso, and all of us at the DHARMA Initiative, thank you, namaste and...good luck.
So it's day 2 of my Lost-a-thon mani series and that means it's time to break out the jumpsuits!! The Dharma Initiative was introduced in season 2 and let me just say...I'm OBSESSED. I seriously have all sorts of Dharma swag and even once hosted a LOST party complete with Dharma beer! Most..OK almost all of my art this season revolves around the enigma that remains the Dharma Initiative. A lot happened in this season which I didn't cover on my nails. Not because it wasn't important but because I felt that the Dharma is MORE important. :P There were those annoying Tailies who appeared seemingly out of nowhere and disappeared almost as quickly. In fact, while season one saw only two major deaths (Ethan Rom and Boone Carlyle), season two seemed almost riddled with it. Shannon is notably taken out by the wrong end of Ana Lucia's gun. Then later Micheal does everyone a favor by taking out both Ana Lucia and Libby in one fell swoop. Rousseau captures Henry Gale in her trap and Jack, Sayid and Locke take turns torturing and coddling him for information. Meanwhile there's that hatch. Filled with the sexy goodness that is Desmond Hume. The hatch, otherwise known as Station Three or The Swan Station was the big news on Season 2. It caused more than one rift between Jack and Locke, acted as a safe ground for Sawyer while he was injured, offered the Losties shelter, food, and access to clean clothing and a shower, gave Hurley a new shot at being a DJ (complete with awesome records like Mama Cass!) and...supplied Charlie with an opportunity to make good on his peanut butter promise to Claire. All in all, this season moved fast and delved much deeper into the characters and the island that season one had.
So the nails...the thumb is the side art from the Blu Ray box. It depicts the island with dark water and cloudy skies.
The index is the opening screen of the Swan Stations orientation film...
"Welcome. I am Dr. Marvin Candle, and this is the orientation film for station 3 of the *DHARMA* Initiative. In a moment you will be given a simple set of instructions for how you and your partner will fulfill the responsibilities associated with the station."
The middle finger is the logo from Mittelos Bioscience which is the front by which the Dharma Initiative allegedly recruits new members like Juliet.
The ring finger is the mad face icon which appears on the screen of the computer inside the hatch just before the numbers are entered "4,8,15,16,23,42, EXECUTE"
The pinkie is the logo from Oceanic Airlines which is the airline which the losties (and the tailies) crashed on. I felt it was more fitting this season since the logo actually appears on the tail of the plane and also one of the tailies, Cindy, was a flight attendant.
Colors used are listed below! Look for post number three tomorrow at 1:50PM (noticing a pattern yet?)
