since we're talking about possible popculture connections Anybody think this could have anything to do with the CBS television show jericho which is set in the midwest and deals with a post nuclear scenario?

interesting comment!!! i'm not familiar with the show and checked it out at IMDb..... found this under "crazy credits"

Each episode's title card is accompanied with audio containing only Morse code (dots and dashes, or short and long beeps) which, when translated, provides a short hint (around 3 words) about the episode to come.

Jericho is awesome. However, nothing we've seen so far connects (plot wise) with Jericho.
I think that if this were related to Jericho, the references would coincide with those from the show... Not to mention the fact that radios didn't play a major part in season 1.


With that said, this whole radio business, with people broadcasting weird messages over the ether does remind me of the situation as it is on the show.

So, I guess it could go either way.

the whole smoke signals on the map reminded me vaguely of the African American "agent"(whose name escapes me ATM) marking off on his map the cities where bombs have been detonated but I agree there's hardly a definitive connection at this point. Just throwing it out there.

Bang Head nothing in this game seems connected.. its like a ARG writers' night of stream-of-conscience dreams strung together thread, tape, glue and spit.

I've been looking into the Jericho angle myself. I was actually looking it up because the show sounded interesting and once i read the synopsis I thought,
"Could this be Tooman?",


But this morning we have a new broadcast.
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
Node 1, Node3 VHF 96Mhz
.

This is what it sounds like to me:

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
"This is Bri(y)an Archer with more questions than answers, question (unclear) three, did the government decide on regicide? (unclear)spider's (unclear) eating it's head."
[/spoiler]

I have to agree that it does sound like REDICIDE. But to me it soubnnds like, at the end:


"can a spider save it's WEB by eating its head?"

Hmmmm. Well this ARg seems to be in some ways related to Native American culture. But i'm not so sure about that, might be a stretch...

"Can a spider save it's web by eating it's head?"

That is a metaphor for Regicide (the killing of a king/leader).

"Did the government decide on regicide? Does a spider (the government) save it's web (the country) by eating (killing) it's head (the president?)?"

I really think that given the context, he really is saying "regicide".

frequency 27

I was listening to the message on node 1 freq 27.

It sounds like the message is saying "Dr. (someone) has been found out" then repeats then "please advise"

[Question] What ties these audios together?
A literary connection?

I've been working on a theory that all the audios refer to works by some literary notable. It hasn't come to fruition, but I thought I'd post about it in the hopes that it may spark some ideas.

Shakespeare:
*Byrne-Archer-Gale clip: Regicide is prevalent in Hamlet, Macbeth, Julius Caesar, and Richard III. (This was the spark that lead to this idea.)
I was trying to work out if "Can a spider save it's web by eating it's head?" is in iambic pentameter. Smile

*Thunder Mountain clip: I think I hear, for the second sentence, "Something nasty rotten". "Something is rotten in the state of Denmark", said Marcellus in "Hamlet".
Assuming the last message is "Have we been spied?" and sticking with "Hamlet". Two conspiring men caught in the act... Rosencrantz & Guildenstern?

*Wichita clip: "You know I won't use my name" A woman wanting to remain anonymous... Juilet?

*Boystown/Burnstown(?) clip: "We've killed the adults". This is one that I can't reconcile with a Shakespearean play. Any ideas?

I suppose that one could argue that within the massive quantity of the bard's works, one could find references to just about everything under the sun.

Ok then, if not Shakespeare, could it be some other author? We've seen Poe used on ayab, do his works touch on these themes? Perhaps a contemporary of Poe's?

Maybe there is something else entirely different that ties these clips contextually all together?
Any ideas?
