if we don't hear something soon-ish, i will assume the writer &
therapist were killed by charlotte and julia over the
weekend... which explains lack of third tape.

Wink

(still hoping the 3rd package arrives today)

Me too. I so want this to be an ARG, not just a way of announcing the sale of the book here in the US.

I got a package today with the tape marked 1/1. I probably won't be able to post about it until after Netcast recording tonight.

ETA:


Quote:

Man: May I offer you some tea?

Woman: Oh, thank you, no. My five minutes would be over before I got around to got around to drinking it.

M: As you wish. So... tell me about yourself.

W: I'm a novelist.

M: Famous.

W: Not unless you're interested in children's books. Most of my readers are age six to thirteen. I sell a lot of copies overseas. Japan was my best market but it's all in the past.

M: In the past?

W: I... haven't finished a book for years.

M: So when was your last book published?

W: That was five years ago. After that, I started another project, a children's book of course, I thought it was going to be my best yet. It almost seemed to write itself but I never got further than the first couple of chapters.

M: Why was that?

W: Health problems. It happened very suddenly. I was hospitalized.

M: What was wrong with you?

W: To be frank, I don't think anyone really knows.

M: How long were you in the hospital?

W: Forty-seven months in all. I was locked in a room and topped up with pills for nearly four years. I barely knew who I was, let alone what was going on.

M: And the... diagnosis?

W: Haven't you been able to make a guess by now?

M: What medication were you on?

W: Pretty much everything. Truxel and Phlustelmarine but mainly Phlupentexol. [Editor's note: Wow, WTF -S.]

M: And... none of them helped?

W: The symptoms got worse. Even after I stopped taking the medication, it took weeks to find my feet. In my opinion, that's proof enough that drugs aren't the solution to my particular condition.

M: What's different about your condition?

W: I'm a novelist.

M: So you said.

W: It's probably best if I give you an example.

so we have 3 marked tapes

2/1 and 1/2 and 1/1


(could be dates of recordings - posting the 3 together in case the combination of the 3 sparks something for someone lurking)

Looks more like they're denoting order now, rather than a specific date. Session 1 part 1, etc. - the 1/2 transcript seems to follow on from the newest.

I'm curious about the woman saying her five minutes would be over before she could drink the tea. Was she allowed only five minutes of his time?

The three tapes we have, appear to be the first time the woman visits the man. It would seem that the tape SpaceBass is the beginning of that visit. I'm not sure which one comes next, but Varin's seems to flow slightly better than Addies.

I'm not questioning the order of the tapes but rather am wondering about the overall context of them based on her five minutes comment--just noting that she was either being snippy or for some reason only has five minutes of his time.

Ah, sorry I didn't explain very well. From some of the book reviews, we learn that Dr. Viktor Larenz, after his daughter goes missing, retires and moves to an island in the North Sea. The woman is an unwelcome guest when she first visits the doctor. I'm assuming he told her she only had 5 mins, to explain her intrusion.

the writer's "mainly" med

flupentixol http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flupentixol


Quote:
Its main use is as a long acting injection given two or three weekly to people with schizophrenia who have a poor compliance with medication and suffer frequent relapses of illness. In some countries this can be involuntary under Community Treatment Orders.

This so reminds me of the early days of I Love Bees, when the Halo fans would try to introduce information from outside source material into the ARG storyline. Should the game itself be allowed to tell its story, as in giving us its own clues to piece together, or is it part of the game to make the connection to a story that has already been written? (No right or wrong answers, just pointing out that I never did read those Halo novels and yet I still enjoyed ILB)

Truxil and I think the third one was Fluspirilene.
