Day NINE

JACKFACE, JACKFACE, WHO'S GOT THE JACKFACE?



****FISHBISCUITLAND ALERT!****

We interrupt your regularly scheduled Countdown to bring you the sad news that our pond did indeed bite the big one last night. Never fear, there's a new one being built as you read this, but it may be a few days before we're all back together again. In the meantime, use the comments section to stay in touch. And keep checking back in here to find out where and when our new home will be ready to swim back to.

And now without further ado, we return you to your Countdown event of the day....


Yesterday, we kicked off the Countdown with one of Lost's most precious treasures - Shirtless! Sawyer!


credit to karate0kat


But we would be remiss if we left the impression that sexy Sawyer is all we've missed about Lost during this long hiatus. Lost is not all about Teh Sex, Fish. There's also lots and lots of Comedy! And by Comedy, I mean...you guessed it...one of Lost's greatest natural resources:

JACKFACE!



As befits his status as leading man and all around main hero pants wearing manly man, The Jackface has already become enshrined in our popular culture. It has its own definition on Urban Dictionary



"Jackface:

1. A term used to describe the contorted facial expression Matthew Fox's character, "Jack Shephard", makes when he is angry, yelling, or just plain acting crazy on the television show "Lost"

2. A term used to describe someone who is being a jackface."




They also elaborate on some of the ways to work the word "Jackface" into your daily conversation. A Jackface is...

"... a moron, a dumbass, someone who is oblivious to the fact that their mere presence makes others want to vomit."



"... a sly way to insult someone without them knowing it."



"... someone who thinks they are cool but just ends up making a fool of themselves."



But Jackface isn't just useful as a great all purpose insult. It's a great raw material for the underappreciated art and craft of Fanon.



Lostpedia helpfully explains the usefulness of Jackface as an excuse to get shitfaced. Very quickly. It's probably the most dangerous Drinking Game ever devised. Lostpedia even provides a nicely comprehensive gallery, complete with historical data. For instance, did you realize that this classic specimen is now considered The Original Jackface?



Lostpedia is such an informative resource.

The fun you can have with Jackface! You can try to find all the Jackfaces Matthew Fox makes when he plays Jack in his movies outside of Lost.



You can vote on a Jackface Poll.




You can watch Jackface Videos.



In fact, Jackface has inspired a whole cottage industry of Jackface Humorists, such as our own karate0kat who created a whole string of classic Jackface picture jokes with gems like this:



There are Jackface Comic Strips.



And Jackfaces are childsplay for anyone looking to make a funny gif.



I think sometimes we Fish get a bad rap for not being fans of Jack.



Nothing could be further from the truth. Any fan of comedy has to be grateful for a gift like The Jackface. It's like the kind of joke that still makes you laugh the hundredth time you hear it. How can anyone hate Jack if they love Jackface as much as we do?



So bring it on, Jack.



Only NINE more days until new Jackface!

That sucks about the fishelage. It's weird, I was on the site when it went down, and I can still navigate and see everything and even post if I go through the 'see your posts' option to get to the sub indexes. It's only the main page that seems to be down. Heh, wonder if DarkUFO knows what happened, he did say "they'll get theirs" or something to that effect.

On a positive note, hilarious post. I'm honored that you used some of my Jackface funnies. Can't wait for the next entry. Only 9 more days!!!!!

Great entry. It certainly wouldn't be Lost without the Jackface!

I can still navigate the fishelage too. I clicked the link to karateOkat's post and i can navigate the board through there. You just can't go through the index. If this is Dark's doing then shame on him. I don't know how he could do something like this though but he sure has the knowledge if there is a way.

I thought the Fish made an announcement that she'd be working on upgrading the pond for the new season - I'd guess it has to do with that. Can't wait to see the shiny new one - just in time for the Year of Sawyer!!!

I can't believe it's only nine days until Lost is back! It doesn't feel real at all. I'm so excited for it to finally come back!

Oh Jackface, how you do entertain me. And it wouldn't have been made possible without the advent of the screencap. lol. It's amazing how many Jackfaces are captured when you browse through the cap section at Lost-Media or elsewhere. It's ridiculous...but hilarious. I sometimes can't believe MF pulls them...Lost would not be the same without the Jackface to mock and laugh at.

Some friends and I once playeda game of Jackface whilst watching TTLG - by the time the FF reveal rolled around, I thought I was going to die of alcohol poisoning. It's a deadly game!

It sucks that the Fishelage is down. But I'm looking forward to seeing the new one. As others have said, it's still possible to navigate it by clicking the link in this post though.

Sorry about the forum guys. We'll get the new one up and running asap.

Love the Jackfaces, hate that the Fishelage crashed. But I can't wait to see the new upgraded one. It's exciting - new season, new ocean! :)

Caitlin M said...

To be fair Cactus, what doesn't outrage you?

Oh, and BTW, just to clarify, my comment yesterday about DarkUFO was more of a "It's really really late where I am and I think I'm being hilarious but really just need to go to bed" accusation rather than a "I really think Dark screwed us" accusation. So, sorry Dark. Yeah.

With the famous Jack Face, Lost has given us what no other fanbase ever had; a truly mockable hero. I often wonder how the character would have gone over with the audience if he had played by another actor. Surely it wasn't the intension of TPTB to make Jack such a laughable tool???

Morning to all the Fishies--I'm missing my daily FBL fix.

Out of curiousity and absolute boredom here at work, is there any way the old board can be reactivated while the new one is being set to launch? I know it's still accessible, but unfortunately, I don't have the link here at work. Ms. Fish or one of adms or mods are around, could someone provide that link here, so we can have a place to go in the meanwhile?

The Fishelage is down! Oh no say it ain't so! I'm missing it so much already :(

Great post Fish. Can't wait for the forum to be back up.

-iamme

LostTvFan said...

Great idea Darbi or, thinking outside the box, maybe The Writers' Room could be used as a backup pond, I believe that board still exists. The other option that occurred to me is that DocArzt might possibly allow us a FBL thread on his board, since so many of us are signing up over there, that we could use in the meantime.

Anonymous said...

Doc's site...well, the forum portion of it is down for maintenance right now too. Ann, do you have the link to the back-up board? Would you mind posting it?

Darbi,

LostTvFan said...

Darbi: This should take you to the old board. You can't sign or post anything but you can access everything:

http://www.fishbiscuitland.com/archive/fishelage/index.php

I have no idea if it can be re-activated.

The Writers' Room still seems active:

http://fishbiscuitland.com/Writers_Room/

I was able to post a new thread so we perhaps could start the threads we need and carry on over there. Check it out:

http://fishbiscuitland.com/Writers_Room/viewtopic.php?p=233#233

Ann, when I click on the link to the new thread, it gives me the message "The topic or post you requested does not exist". Anybody else having this problem?

LostTvFan said...

Go to the site:
Heatherlar:

Sign in or register and then go to the first section and click on:

The Writers' Cramp

There is a thread there titled:

FBL Back Up Land

See if that works for you, Darbi was able to post a reply to my message.

Magali said...

Ann I tried that and it isn't working for me. I registered ages ago and just signed in. All that's under there is Writer's Block and then it says that there's no more users being accepted to that group.

The board is weird, you can post and visit all the other forums, you just can't click on board index. Huh. Hope the new board is up soon, I'm missing the FBL fix.

The Jackfaces are awesome; whatever would we do without them?

Freckles said...

Hi fellow fishes:D
I miss our home,I can't wait for the new one!
Do we need to register again,once it's up again?Thanks.Airkiss to all of you.

If all else fails, it wouldn't be difficult to set up a very temporary forum in the interim. I can do it if anyone's interested.

Missing the pond. :( What bad timing too, with the new season just around the corner. I hope it can be up and running in time for the premiere and that the Fish doesn't get a massive headache trying to make it happen.

And the Jackfaces drinking game...sounds like I know what I'm doing my next girl's night out!

Okay guys: Can someone please create a back up board or find somewhere we can go for a couple days until the new one is up?? I'm DYING here!!!!!
