from the 001

intercepted feed from the Heads.

-Remember, he is not, like you, a pure spirit. Never having been a human (Oh that abominable advantage of --- Enemy's!) you don't realise how enslaved they are to the pressure of the ordinary. I once had a ------, a sound atheist, who used to read in the British Museum. One day, as he sat reading, I saw a train of thought in his mind beginning to go the wrong way. The Enemy, of course, was at his elbow in a moment. Before I knew where I was I saw my twenty years' work beginning to totter. If I had lost my head and begun to attempt a defence by argument I should have been undone. But I was not such a fool.

ironically enough this text (discovered chewed and childishly vandalized at the 001 station) proves our point 002 and 003!
003, continue to oversee both the 120 and the center- bring back any developments to the Head.

Jarek Pastor said...

F'shoooo Screwtape Letters.
That book is TOO raw.

Jarek Pastor said...

OMGOSH WHAT THE HECK
On the Raw Rock Militia myspace page (http://myspace.com/rawrockmilitia f'sho) there's an audio clip from one of the Heads. And uh.... it's kind of hard to transcribe. But it has to be a clue f'sho. So we should get on that right about..... right now. brb listening @ clip

Jarek Pastor said...

Yeah, I have no idea what it's from. It's hard to even hear the whole thing.
Josh! What are you doin' makin' everything so crazy?!
jklol it's great :(
But f'sho, guys, I need help with this one.

mary said...

That clip is really creepy...I don't even know where to begin.

bryn said...

saw SHOWBREAD last night.. purchased the IF YOU DONT LIKE SHOWBREAD YOU'RE AN IDIOT shirt. yelled into the mic. Josh Dies is my favorite. forever and ever amen.

ima listen to that clip now.

Nick said...

hey what is the first line in the sound clip

Nick_doe said...

I no it says, "The truth about me is..." after that Mary and I are lost.
Does it say porcelain?

kristin said...

i think it might be something like "the truth about me isn't listening"... but now that i think about it, that doesn't really make sense. and then it says something like "it put us through a string of.." and i don't know. i've listened to it like 5 billion times, too.

Mary\ said...

My brother Nick and I think it might have something to do with Nine Inch Nail's lyrics.

kristin said...

hmm... well i don't really know that many NIN songs (except for Head Like a Hole, of course). but... i already googled the words that i could understand from the recording and i didn't really find anything helpful.

Bryan said...

i think it's, "the truth about me is a bascilli"??
also, the last word in every line is accented by the deep voice, so if we can transcribe the poem, maybe the clue is in the last words??

Bryan said...

if i'm right about the bascilli, then the next line would make sense to be something, something "stringy flagella"...

Bryan said...

if we can kind of guess the thing out, maybe we can look at the "clue words" and rearrange them to figure things out better...
i could be off with this lead, but it's worth a shot...

kristin said...

i was thinking the same thing about the poem thing.

kristin said...

also, not to sound stupid, but what the heck does "bascilli" mean?

valerie said...

OOOOH Screwtape is my favorite book evaaaaa!!!

But off the top of my head, I think the missing words are "the" and "patient"

Now to go listen to this clip...

mary said...

My brother's friends said that the clip is off of the movie White Noise...I don't remember that in there but then I didn't pay close attention to the movie. If anyone has the movie I guess watch it...

kristin said...

yes, the missing words out of the Screwtape excerpt are THE and PATIENT. i just looked it up to make sure. and i've seen that movie White Noise before... but i don't remember much about it. good job, though =]

valerie said...

I'm thinking the first line is:

"The truth about me doesn't vacillate"

???
who knows. I put the clip in a sound editor, cleaned it up and slowed it down... and I still can't make it out.

kristin said...

Ok... maybe I'm missing something obvious, but I don't understand this:

"ironically enough this text (discovered chewed and childishly vandalized at the 001 station) proves our point 002 and 003!
003, continue to oversee both the 120 and the center- bring back any developments to the Head."

What is "001, 002, 003, and 120"?

valerie said...

the predecessors to Bond. James Bond; agent 007.

ha.. ok sorry, lame.

those email addresses had 001 and 003 at the end, remember? but 120 is new to me.

hmm. I give up for today. =)

bryn said...

'the truth about me is that personally, ..." still working on it. gah.

Jamie Lynn said...

something like: ' the truth about me is that personally' something something 'life is' something something then i think it said something like 'rock n roll' but maybe not
lol then like 'the first' blah blah 'nothing is conclusive 'they look for a moment' 'at night i'm awake' something 'speaks'

haha i dunno...

mary said...

I am so lost now. It is frustrating.

leonawendy said...

i hear


the truth about me is that personally

life is ful of something

somethingsomethingsomething

life still has to be true?


hmmmm not sure bout the middle

leonawendy said...

full*

leonawendy said...

mmmmmk im hearing something different each time... grrrrr

Shanna said...

Sorry to be off-topic, but I haven't been online and seem to have missed the signifigance of the last 3 posts. So I tried logging in to (youcantsaveyourself) but can't get it to work. Could anyone kindly email me to get me caught up? (whereismovieman@hotmail.com) I'd like to continue playing the game but I've already missed so many clues! Thanks so much...

kristin said...

Here's what I've been able to make out so far, listen to it and tell me if you think I did a good job:

"The truth about me is that ________
It put us through a string of _________
It's just the protiens and _______
It still has to be directed by_______
Nothing happens at first, then they carry me,
Carry me by the__________
_
_
_
_
_
_
Nothing was conclusive
_
They looked for a moment, and _______
And now I'm awake
_
It speaks without looking at me,
it mentions my thoughts
With fleas cached in its fur."

leonawendy said...

oooook... concerning the 001, 002, and 003 in the blog... i think that there are three people(josh and 2 others) because in the emails is says heads of death not head...

yea idk...

mary said...

Kristin, you have probably gotten further than all of us. So yeah good job. I know I'm stuck.

kristin said...

Yeah, it really does sound like it's from the movie White Noise... So I looked for a transcript of the movie, and looked all through it, but there was nothing that looked like what we have here...

Jamie Lynn said...

Yeah in the transcript there's a good chance it just describes what it sounds like, like "static and fuzzy voice is heard" or something like that

kristin said...

yep. that's pretty much exactly what the transcript said. so, that was no help.

bryn said...

i can make out most of what you said Kristen. good work.. the first blank is 'personally'

Cory said...

Yeah, Kristin... Good work!

Cory said...

I think one of the lines in the middle says something about "Lays them out in the sun"

kristin said...

So... how are these clues tied together, or are they? Cause the fallen FALLEN thing, Milton, the abluo3 video, and the Screwtape Letters excerpt are all still out there, we haven't figured out where those come into play.

rawrawkaholic said...

wow, this is probably the hardest clue yet, i'm going to talk to a few people I know, see if they can help me out with this

Cory said...

I am absolutely POSITIVE it's not from white noise... I'm trying to see how I can reduce noise, etc with a program I have... I seem to be making progress, but I am still trying.

Emily said...

i don't think it is from white noise either...

hopefully with school done, i may actually have time to participate in this. or at least read a bit more.

kristin said...

Yeah, the sound program should make it much easier. Too bad I don't have one =[ or I would be doing the same. Well, good luck.

hawk said...

i dont think its from white noise either cuz the normal voice sounds kinda like josh's voice.

kristin said...

haha no it doesn't! josh's voice isn't that demonic... haha idk it might be.

Bryan said...

i'm downloading a program right now too, hopefully i can separate the voices...

paul said...

i can't find the audio clip on the site. Can someone please tell me where on the site it is?

Bryan said...

alright, i cleaned it up and i'm almost positive this is what is being said:

the truth about me is a bacilli
it flutters through with stringy flagella
it leeches the proteins and grows from a stem
i lay still and ask to be directed by them
nothing happens at first, then they carry
carry me by the eyes to HIV and parvo
I am asked not to mention the things that I saw
i write them down and hang them in the sun
creatures come out to look in on them
nothing is conclusive it dangles like a uvula
they look for a moment and yawn as they pass
at night i’m awake i’ve been joined by a bat
it speaks without looking at me
mentions my faults with fleas caked in its fur

kristin said...

Wow... that sounds exactly like what is being said. And the whole thing actually makes sense, too. You are freaking awesome.



So... what now?

leonawendy said...

wow! good job!

valerie said...

OOh, what a fantastic job Bryan!!

Cory said...

This is what I had...

The truth about me is the bacilli
It flutters through the stringy flagella
it reaches the proteins and gose through the stem
I lay still... It has to be_______
Nothing happens at first
Then they carry me
They carry me by the eyes to the HIV department
And that's not to mention_________
I write them down and hang them in the sun
Creatures come up too
Nothing is conclusive
__________They look for________
And I am awake
________Speaks________Mentions_____
with fleas caked in its fur

That's what I thought... But I think the only thing I think Bryan wasn't right about is the HIV... I think it said HIV department, but I don't know. I don't know what "and parvo" means.

Brandi said...

That is exactly what it says! And it sounds just like Josh Dies to me... so now what do we do?

Brandi said...

I think parvo is some kind of disease dogs get?

Cory said...

Oh, yeah... Bryan:

*High Five*

bryan said...

i think there is a connection to the screwtape blog, because the blog and mp3 were posted at the same time??

leonawendy said...

yea it is

Bryan said...

oh, wait, i get it... i'm dumb.
read the poem straight down the column on the right...meaning, the last letters on the accented words.

leonawendy said...

well the missing words in the blog are the patient... and the mp3 talks a lot about diseases

leonawendy said...

oooooooooooooooooooh

leonawendy said...

maybe its an email..

Brandi said...

Do I have to be in some email thing to be apart of this because I am totally lost.

Cory said...

Email: iammyownmaster
Password: thepatient

Job 1:7

leonawendy said...

u rock!

Cory said...

But I don't get the picture... What's the clue?

The pic is titled

"001002003"

Clearly a reference to the Heads of Death

leonawendy said...

hmmm whats 10 15 2 a:g

leonawendy said...

job?

Cory said...

"And the Lord said unto Satan, 'whence comest thou?' Then Satan answered the Lord and said, 'From going to and fro the earth, and from walking up and down in it.'"

Job 1:7 (KJV)

leonawendy said...

nice!

valerie said...

but what are the dashes? theres, i think 141 of them?

valerie said...

*there are

'scuse my grammar.

Cory said...

71 dashes

kristin said...

Also, what is that even a picture of?.. a moth?

Jamie Lynn said...

the picture reminds me of silence of the lambs. but i really don't think that has anything to do with it...

haha

kristin said...

Me neither. Is the picture supposed to have some connection with the bible verse? Cause.. it doesn't.

sara said...

oh gosh...im finally back. but so behind now. i have so many comments to read. but so far it seems like you kids are making some progress, wooh.

sara said...

haha jamie...i thought the same thing when i saw the picture of the moth. i thought of silence of the lambs right away...but im kind of guessing theres no real connection there.

valerie said...

OH!!
I just looked up that moth, and it's called the
Death's Head Sphinx Moth.

haha, I knew it was some sort of sphinx moth, but I didn't know there was one called Death's Head.

http://godofinsects.com/museum/display.php?sid=96

kristin said...

That's awesome! How'd you find that??

Brandi said...

This may sound dumb... but moths are attracted to light. I wonder if that has anything to do with it.

Cory said...

Val...

Just to let you know...

YOU'RE PRETTY MUCH MY HERO FOR THE MOMENT.

kristin said...

chyeah mine too! you're so smart valerie...

valerie said...

aw!!! (*blushes*) thanks!

sara said...

good job girl!

ok so now what from here.
im kinda wondering about what brandi said, i wonder if moths being attracted to light has anything to do with this. or other stuff that moths do...what do moths do? hah.

kristin said...

Hmm, well... they fly.

Brandi said...

Well moths eat garments and such, and they are really hard to get rid of, even with pesticides. I found some scriptures involving reference to a moth.
Job 4:19
Psalm 39:11
Isaiah 51:8
Matthew 6:20
Luke 12:33

Also in Isaiah, moth eaten garments are compared to wicked people.
I don't know if I'm way off base, but just a thought?

Cory said...

AND eat clothes...

But my point is... The passage from the post is one of one demon or spirit speaking to others. It is a letter where they converse of what "they" should and shouldn't do to lure humans into leaving faith.

The end of the post basically says, too:

001:"This is what we aim for"

So, I imagine that has something to do with the solution to this whole thing.

kristin said...

Wow... I wonder how long it took them to come up with all this! It's great.

valerie said...

hmm, yeah.
in that part of the story the older demon is telling the younger one that he will get farther with agreement, persuasion, and playing on people's human needs than with direct argument.

gaaah, what's the '120'???

rawrawkaholic said...

so, I was doing a little wikipediaing(may have invented a new word there) and I found out two interesting things

1. Death's head was an old comic book, there were eventually 3 versions of death's head


2. It's also a nazi thing http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Totenkopf

rawrawkaholic said...

forgot to add that the 2nd one is interesting to me because the clues have made a few references to Nazism, and the first one caught my attention as there are 3 of them, such as the 3 death's heads we have
001, 002, 003.


there are also 3 species of death's head moths.


just throwing some stuff out on the table



God Bless,
Josh

kristin said...

hmm, comic book. interesting. well, too bad i can't stay long enough to see where this goes =[ my parents are kicking me off the computer. but i will be on here first thing tomorrow morning! good luck and god bless! i love you all! haha.

Jamie Lynn said...

i might be being a total ditz right now cuz i'm running on 3 hours of sleep, but where did the 'this is what we aim for' thing come from?

rawrawkaholic said...

also, what do you guys think "the 120 and the center" are?

Cory said...

I've done a lot of wikipediaing myself recently... Jamie, I was just paraphrasing what I got out of the "email" from this post.

Oh and I think it could really be connected with the Nazi thing... Cuz if you remember there was talk of the nazi stuff before. But you already knew that, didn't you?

Mary said...

My brother and I searched Death's Head moths and came across the same picture. Here is the website. It may come in handy I guess.
http://www.habitas.org.uk/moths/
set.asp?item=6064smup

Cory said...

I guess I just realized that the "MP3THETRUTH" was a clue in itself to go look for that clip.

Cory said...

I must say, though... We pretty well sucker punched that post right in the face! We rock!

sara said...

gosh. you guys are really like destroying this post, haha. you're figuring out a lot. im just following along for right now, trying to catch up on everything. but im seriously thinking that this is all leaning towards the nazi thing somehow.

Matty B said...

Geez. Way to go with the deciphering the MP3. I listened to it when I got home from church, but I couldn't make anything of it, and I didn't have much time. But you guys really kicked it's butt. haha.

Same thing with the picture of the moth.

Jon-Eric said...

so did someone change the password again, because i cant get into the new email account, if someone could email me the picture or post a link of it that would be great, onesecondlater1988@yahoo.com

Cory said...

I AM OFFICIALLY TICKED!

The password for the recently discovered email address was changed.

Grrr.

paul said...

hey guys, sorry to be a bit behind but i left a comment earlier asking where on the myspace site was the audio clip and no1 got back to me:(, lol. but i would appreciate it if someone could fill me in there so i can finally listen to it. Also, if the password has been changed on this new account it would also be nice if someone could send me this picture with the moth (imanidiot_19@hotmail.com) o post a link of the clue, not just the moth. Thanks again guys, good job figurin all of it out.

Jon-Eric said...

http://www.myspace.com/rawrockmilitia
thats where the audio clip is

mary said...

there is the moth picture.

Cory said...

Well, I'm off to the grande ole lake. I will see you folks in a minute. Pce.

Nick said...

I found this on google
it's the Neo-Nazi skull called Totenkopf, or Death's Head

http://www.adl.org/hate_symbols/
neo-nazi_skull.asp

rawrawkaholic said...

gah, the password is changed :( this better be the heads of death's doing or I will rip heads off

rawrawkaholic said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
rawrawkaholic said...

yeah nick, I saw that on my wikipedia adventures late last night

Nick said...

I asked my dad what he thought about the...

1)three Nazi SS branches
2)the three Death's Head sphinx Moths
3)the three Death's Head Comic books series

He said, "the trinity."

kristin said...

the trinity... hm.

rawrawkaholic said...

nick, that's what i've been thinking as well but I've been kinda waiting for more clues before I said anything, but we'll see hah ah


on a sidenot, i'm having curly fries with lunch! w00t! ha ha ha

kristin said...

lucky! i want some curly fries =[ you should put some in a comment so i can get some.. haha.

valerie said...

Sorry if this has been brought up before, but I wonder if there's a connection between the way the "fallen FALLEN" was in the upper right corner of the page, and the Job 1:7 was in the lower left of the dashes??


or am I just digging too hard...

k, going away to dream of curly fries now.

kristin said...

well, i don't think that has anything to do with it, that's just my opinion. but it didn't hurt to bring it up.

bryn said...

GRR. PASSWORD CHANGED AGAIN. im always about a half-hour too late. seriously. thats lame.

dudepal2021 said...

so i was gone all day, missed everything! did any one happend to save the email or forward it to themself?

rawrawkaholic said...

no, but that's a good idea, i'm going to have to start doing that for now on since somebody keeps changing the password

mary said...

I didn't forward it to myself but all the eamil was was a bunch of blanks with a code that came out to say Job 1:7 and a picture of a Death's Head moth. Here is the link for the picture again...

bryn said...

..thanks mary...

dudepal2021 said...

thank you mary. and can you all please pray for the tour right now its gotten a little rough, chasing victory dropped and the showdown ahs ahd van problmes. last night there was only showbread and then 2 local bands

kristin said...

ooh, i will definitely be praying for the tour...

Brandi said...

I wonder why chasing victory dropped??

rawrawkaholic said...

Chasing Victory is having financial issues and doesn't have enough money to reorder CDs and shirts and stuff, therefore unable to afford food and gas and important things like that so they're kind of stuck in the hole for a while, they're all looking for jobs so they can earn more money to get back on the road

rawrawkaholic said...

and that's what you get for leaving Alabama out on another tour :p

Cory said...

:( That makes me sad... And I don't even know Chasing Victory's music.

rawrawkaholic said...

:O you don't know who Chasing Victory is? go to http://www.myspace.com/chasingvictory and watch Wolves

rawrawkaholic said...

I mean listen to wolves, gosh I feel stupid with a capital Q lol

kristin said...

Haha, capital Q... that was funny. I guess I'm just easily amused.

jeremy said...

guhhhh, this is terrible. :(
i was gone for the day.
so i didn't get into the email.
why do people think they need to ruin it for everyone?
it's so stupid.

i think from now on, at least one person should forward the emails to themselves for anybody else who missed them before someone comes to ruin it. that would help a big load for anybody who doesn't get here in time.

kristin said...

yep. that's a very good idea. i wish i would have thought of that sooner. so, i guess we'll have to start doing that from now on, since somebody keeps doing this, thinking they're being funny, when really it's just annoying.

rawrawkaholic said...

yeah this is freaking retarded, there's gotta be a better way to do this, maybe like an email list or something, or maybe a facebook, or a myspace or something, because you can set it so somebody has to know a last name to add somebody as a friend, so maybe they could do like the last name as a password, just a few ideas

kristin said...

yeah but for all we know it could be you!! haha but i'm serious. obviously whoever is messing with the passwords and stuff has been following along with us the whole time. you know what i mean? so how do we know who it is? =[ it makes me sad.

Cory said...

Of course I know who Chasing Victory is... I just don't know their music. And I definitely am hungry for another clue.

sara said...

wait are we sure that it wasn't one of the heads of death who changed the password?
