Can you help him?


He doesn't understand. Others know I'm trying to help him.



Time.

For a lousy start : опасность translates to danger. I'll be contacting the e-mail to see what happens and be back later to try and translate the Russian text in his letter.

Our Russian may be a bit rusty, but my fiance and I translated the front of the envelope to read:

Comes

Tall

Man

Film

20 July


The back of the envelope says:

Spider Wall

Help Me

We hope this is not a movie tie in.

Thanks for the translation. I wonder if there's any particular reason why 'movies/films' is upside down?

Also hoping this isn't part of a movie stunt, hopefully something will happen on the 20th.

Edit : I just checked the blog, someone commented and it seems Mark replies. Maybe share the translations with him?

I have also been emailing Cymbu. Got two email responses urging me to tell Mark what the letter says.

So far, I'm intrigued. Will probably try to make contact with him through his blog tomorrow.

I'm a total newbie to ARG, so....we shall see.

We must have posted at the same time. That was a comment I left earlier today. I guess I will post the translation to him now instead of tomorrow. So much for sleep. Very Happy

Yah, seems we were just a couple minutes apart Smile

Hope you get an answer that leads to some sort of clue or something, it's hard to look around since this basically relies on Mark posting blog updates right now (and I'm too tired to look really hard, haha). Cymbu isn't giving any useful information, either.

He responded to my comments. He is making a reference to the show Ninja Warrior, but also is alluding that it could be something else.....the plot thickens, although I am too tired to follow it more tonight.

Mark's newest blog post gives meaning to Spider Wall, Movies, and the date July 20th.

Code:
The Spider Wall, paired with the word film means the movie theater in town. The only people who would remember it that I talk to anymore would be Dan, Jess, or Brian.

Since moving, I live a lot closer to it than I used to.

There's a date, 20 July. Brian's birthday. 

Even if I contemplated that I'm supposed to be taking something from this, he's overseas somewhere. He also doesn't know Russian last I checked, hell he wouldn't even take Spanish in high school!

Or maybe he DIDN'T and does now.


As of yet we've got nothing about Comes Tall Man, my guess is that this might be a Slenderman thing? I took a closer look at the images and I'm not finding anything yet, but it's still too early to tell. I'm posting the originals here for posterity's sake.


Mark.


Brian, his face is blacked out for censoring.

Yup, my fiance was up in the middle of the night last night and checked the blog and saw the pic of Brian on the spider wall. Then this morning I saw the second updated blog entry.

My man played around with the images, but nothing stood out. We are not photoshop adept, so there could be something there.

My initial feeling is that something is happening with/to Brian while he is abroad and either Brian or someone else is trying to get a message out to Mark.

I'll probably leave another comment urging him to go to the movie theater tomorrow.

Whomever is doing this, is doing a good job of playing the messed up sleep/insomnia angle. I was dead asleep at 3:00am. Very Happy

ETA: Didn't think of the Slenderman angle. I have not been keeping up with MH, but that could be a possibility.

Yeah, I had gone to bed by then too, and I really wasn't expecting two new blog posts by the time I woke up! What a productive insomniac.

I left a message on the blog asking if Mark has any way of contacting Brian, so we'll see where that goes, and got another reply from Cymbu warning me about 'Others'.

I just saw your comment on the blog (so glad someone else is commenting, too). I'm eager to see his response.

I didn't think to email Cymbu again, but I think I'll try that. I have to admit, I am finding the story intriguing.

Is the "him" in Cymbu's email referring to Mark? So others are watching Mark? The plot thickens....

Yeah, the 'him' should be Mark, I'd been asking about him in my previous e-mail. Maybe you'll have better luck with Cymbu than I did, yeh?

I am looking forward to see how this unfolds.

Also checking the Steganography angle on the pics, will let you know if I come back with anything, the first photo (self-portrait) has EXIF data, while the second one does not (so whomever is behind it was smart enough to strip that out to not give away when the picture was taken).

Got my eye on this. Will investigate it more later. Consider me a passive player for now
