Just a few hours ago I stood in the jungle where shooting takes place on Lost and shouted at the top of my lungs, ‘Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalt! They took my boy!’ It was a special moment.
I don’t have a lot of time – there’s drinking to be done! – but I wanted to share with you some pictures from my Hawaii trip thus far. I’m here for the junket for Forgetting Sarah Marshall, which represents a new thing for CHUD: my interviews will be on video. Yeah, I’m not excited about it either. I got to Hawaii yesterday and stayed in Waikiki, which sucks, but today I came to the North Shore of Oahu to the Turtle Bay Resort, where Forgetting Sarah Marshall was shot, which is awesome. I’ll write a longer piece about this for those interested, but my impression of Waikiki was that it’s like a shopping mall in Wisconsin but everybody’s in bathing suits.
Now: the pics!
Turtle Bay Resort!
My room is marked red, for all stalking types.

The view from the balcony obscured by my fat head. I went hat shopping with one thought in mind: ‘What Would Jeff Probst Wear?’
The jungle! It’s easy to imagine you’re being chased by the black smoke. Not that I did something as goofy as that.
This banyan tree has been featured on Lost, specifically in the episode from season one where Walt hides in it from the polar bear.
This WWII bunker has not been in Lost but obviously should be.
