[Puzzle] The Collage

Just starting this topic so the "Collage" puzzle won't fall through the cracks.

Collage contains:

Two phone numbers:
Jessica: 365-5698
Robert: 436-6639

A kiss.
A chess piece.
Lots of pictures of movement and feet.
Lots of pictures of phones.
Pictures that seem to be people following other people.
Santa.
A picture of Han Solo's blaster.
Fork.
Cat.

Just a thought, Jessica's number is upside down...which looks like it could be:
869S-S9E or 8695-59E instead of a phone number perhaps?

Letter Games

Actually, I was wondering if maybe the phone numbers spelled something out using the letters on the digits.

There aren't any 0's or 1's in the numbers listed, so they could potentially spell out the other code words.

Great idea!
 Code: 365-5698  > follow(8)? def = 3 mno = 6 jkl = 5 jkl = 5 mno = 6 wxyz = 9 tuv = 8 436-6639 > genome(9)? ghi = 4 def = 3 mno = 6 mno = 6 mno = 6 def = 3 wxyz = 9

Just guessing, but genome was a keyword, so doesn't look accidental

edit: I think we just discovered the keyword "genome", which was probably guessed too soon by someone

Nope, cos we needed to find genome to get to this collage in the first place.

Lots of Specs

Spec:

There's 3 "people on phones" on the collage - one near Jessica, the other near Robert - 3rd somewhere near the joger. I think someone should call the numbers.

Also of note:
- all pictures are cut/paste, but one is blended (cyclists?). The black thing behind the queen-kiss piece is also unidentified. The "Queen" appears out of place (Queen = woman = Palmer?.. kiss.. seduction, succubus, elixis? possible keywords?)

I was looking further at what we seem to have presumed is the word "kisses" coming from the object in the centre of the collage.

Zooming in onto this and it does get blurry (can anyone clean it up somehow?) to me it looks like KisG53.

Key is G53??
Keyword is G53? - it is not but I am convinced it does not say kisses.

What is the object btw?

It's a Hershey Kiss, a pretty common candy, at least in the US. And it does indeed say "kisses" on it's little tag.

Just a quick spec but calling Robert's number using the same area code as the FAA line gives an invalid number message, but the error code is "696". According to the steg in the collage, the title of the ritual page is 6969696969.

A second spec is actually calling (696)969-6969, but I'm kinda weary on calling that one.

Can someone in the US please call the (696) number? Only lead at the moment.

There is no 696 area code in the US. That number is often used as a fake phone number on websites.

If the numbers in the collage really represent actual phone numbers, all we need is the correct area code (obviously) is there any indication as to the whereabouts of the two people?

Of course, the lack of area codes could also indicate that the numbers themselves have no relevance as phone numbers, but are clues in and of themselves.

So far, the only real phone number that has been used in this ARG has been the FAA pilot information line for Dallas Love Field, and that line most likely isn't run by Ritual.

Saved this and zoomed in on the kiss on a hunch. That is a tiny little 3 at the end of it, no doubt. Less certain, but still there is the 5 masquerading as the second "s". Looks like KIS5E3.

No idea if this helps, but there it is.
