a countdown?

rawrawkaholic said...

it's a countdown to something

sara said...

there's a new emaillll!
[in the account from the last clues]

sara said...

in the new email it says at the bottom:

"Take his clothes off, then he’ll heal,
and if he doesn’t cure, then kill him.
It’s only a doctor; it’s only a doctor."

which is from A Country Doctor by Franz Kafka

not sure about the rest of the email though...or this post.

Mary said...

do we know what the PC is?

valerie said...

primary concern, i think

Brandi said...

do we know who the primary concern is.. i forget.

Brandi said...

I wonder if the 15 on the post just means "transmission15"?
I wonder if there is a new username/password...

Acountrydoctor is a used username...

That's all for now.

sara said...

i still don't get the signal email.
maybe this post was like the signal to send the transmission15 email?

rawrawkaholic said...

transmission15 is also an account

leonawendy said...

yea finally! a new clue!

sara said...

Ein Landarzt is the German name for A Country Doctor [because that's the language Kafka wrote in.]

einlandarzt is a valid username.

Liz said...

So I wonder if the dialog is from the PC or about the PC. I kinda feel that it is the PC's dialog and obviously hes talking about being at the 120 and maybe describing the Succubus? that would make sense to me knowing what a succubus is.... but I could totally be waaaayyy off.

valerie said...

i went back and looked over all the emails and i don't know why i thought PC meant primary concern- i don't see that anywhere. sorry!

the email is obviously talking about a girl, could it be either jurgis or ona? is one of them actually one of the heads in disguise as a girl- that would be a succubus, and that would explain why she's like a "shell"
idk, hmm.

Brandi said...

I think someone just guessed and thought that PC meant primary concern.. it makes sense though.

Wasn't there a picture with "pc" as the title?

sara said...

brandi i went back and looked through the pictures we've been given and i didn't see one with that title...but i could have overlooked it. because i think i missed a picture or two.

but i thought primary concern was a pretty safe guess.

but yea. i thought that the dialogue was about the pc because it said "concerning the pc" or something like that. which make the pc a girl, of course. and i think
that what valerie is sayin is a really good guess because it would make sense.

Liz said...

Well it said "regarding the PC"
and I think it is stuff that the PC has said that was intercepted???

Liz said...

Oh and the way the girl is described as "hot" and how they "love when they wear skimpy outfits" makes me think its a Guy. What girl talks about another girl like that?

Drew said...

arg...I leave tomorrow for three weeks for missionary work in Fiji and Australia.
I'm afraid I'm going to miss so much stuff.
=[

Anonymous said...

im leaving for a uganda missions trip on the 5th for three weeks myself

dudepal2021 said...

yeah maybe someone just guessed the primary concern caus eit sounds real familiar to me, like i think i read it in one of the emails. the pc and the ip

Charis said...

can someone fill me in on what is going on? i've looked at most of the posts. what is this all about?

within_grace at yahoo

sara said...

nobody seems to working on this clue :[

valerie said...

i sort of thought we were waiting for something else, like this countdown starts with fifteen, and we got transmission15, so maybe there are 14 more we're waiting for?

sara said...

perhaps perhaps.
it just seems like
between the post in the emails...
we should have something.
but this is happened before.
i guess ill just wait it out, haha.

Cory said...

So, I don't know where to start... Except that I talked to Josh at Cornerstone directly after the Goodnight Fight played.

--"Hey, Josh!"
---"Hey! What's up, man!"
--"Two GREAT shows right in a row, as usual."
---"Well, thank you!"
--"I just had a question..."
---"Okay, what is it?"
--"Considering I'll be here (at Cornerstone) all week, coming straight from the IP, am I going to miss anything?"
---*Pushes me away in that joking sorta way*
--"Oh I'm not allowed to ask?"
---"No."

And the conversation went on to bigger and better things... But I just figured I would tell you just cuz nothing's happening.

Cory said...

24 hours with no replies...? Where have all the people gone?

sara said...

gahh i think everyone disappeared.

valerie said...

eh, maybe just waiting. =)

Cory said...

Whatever happened to trying to get it?

hawk said...

we're waiting for you to get it!!

sara said...

we don't really have enough clues yet. well i dont think.

i've tried tons of password/username
combinations and got nothin.

Vincenzo said...

I'm confused with the user names and passwords.

I think it would help if someone posted all the account names and passwords that we have so far. We do have some, right?

Jon-Eric said...

this one really has me stuck by far, but i get to see showbread tomorrow so its all gravy, im excited

sara said...

im stuck, too. i think valerie has the right idea in waiting. rahhh.

Brandi said...

Man.. I haven't been around a computer lately, I guess nothing has happened yet??
Oh well, I get to see Showbread tonight so I'm really excited...

Liz said...

Vincenzo...

Liz said...

I'm bored! we need something new!

I'm going to see Showbread on Friday! I'm super excited this will be my 6th time seeing them! They always put on a great show!

New e-mail. Transmission 14. Check it out cause it's stumping me.

Liz said...

Hmmmmmmmm....... interesting....

Liz said...

Josef K. is from Franz Kafka, the Trial

Liz said...

I think there is something to do with Franz Kafka... he was qouted in the last 2 e-mails... what could it be though?

valerie said...

and both emails describe someone who seems to be without soul or emotions- one at the 120 and one at the center.

valerie said...

oh, and i meant to say
could both emails be talking about the same person?

dudepal2021 said...

"cuts off her emotions" maybe she cuts herself? or that she just is always cutting on the killing floor

sara said...

well i thought it would have been talking about the same person because it said 'regarding the pc' on each. but i think it could also be different people [which would mean 'pc' was referring to multiple people]because it's at 2 different places.

hmmmm.

im really wondering who the transmissions are coming from.

asweat08 said...

i saw showbread last night in AR! woohoo

but i also looked up plot summaries of the last two kafka works that were quoted from

"A Country Doctor" (German: "Ein Landarzt")
follows a country doctor’s hapless struggle to attend a sick young boy in the cold winter night. basically the doctory is trying to answer a night call but he has no horse. this random guy appears in his barn, gives him a horse, and then kisses and chases the doctor's maid. the doctor wants to help but the horse starts running and then like transports 10 miles [its a crazy story]

when he gets there the patient is totally healthy and his family is all sad about it. so he looks again and finds a wound in the patient's side-then the family is happy. the doctor wants to go back to help his maid but the family take off his clothes and throw him in a room [that's where the quotes from-some kids are singing those lines]

at the end the doctor is sad and guesses that the man that gave him the horse at the beginning must be stealing his practice.
but its a really short story and you can read it here:
http://www.mala.bc.ca/~johnstoi/kafka/countrydoctor.htm

The Trial (German: Der Prozess)
is a novel about Josef K., who awakens one morning and, for reasons never revealed, is arrested and subjected to the rigours of the judicial process for an unspecified crime.
i don't know a whole lot about it but there's a pretty good plot summary here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Trial

i donno if that helps but hopefully it might

rawrawkaholic said...

woah, went to see Transformers with my grandfather and hang out with him for the day and I miss alot lol I suspect in 14 more emails something big is about to happen

Cory said...

Okay... First of all, for those of you who haven't realized it, transmission14 has been received.

Also, for those of you who said maybe the PC was one person:

"We were foolish to underestimate the initial problem. Now, it seems that the IP has come into direct contact with both of the PC's."

==report==<<< that was the email this came from.

kristin said...

oh yeah! 2 pc's.. i forgot about that. thank you cory.

Jon-Eric said...

well the girl they are talking is christophers mother, i dont think cuts off her emotions means she cuts, i think it kinda like she is possessed, or something like that

rawrawkaholic said...

ok derVersuch and EinLandarzt are both accounts, think this is like the oreb01 and sinai495 accounts?

Liz said...

I definitely think they are talking about 2 different people, both with the same problem. What I wonder is why? what is going on in thier lives? Is this the death heads doing? Can they be helped?

sooo many questions with no answers!

Liz said...

Brandi said...

Hmmm. so new username maybe?

I saw Showbread the other night and it was amazing as always. I met Josh and asked him if he had any hints about the Death Heads... he said, "I don't know what you're talking about" and laughed. I said, "You can't say anything?" and he said, "Just keep your eyes open!"...

Just thought I'd share!

valerie said...

has anybody read their blog that says they have some more shows and festivals in august? and if so, do you know where they will be?

rawrawkaholic said...

hopefully AL, I know they're playing the very first Cornerstone, CA

valerie said...

yes, rawrawkaholic my friend, there's a place in florence AL that claims showbread'll be there aug 14 - the rave arcade. it's a nice place but i don't know if they've really booked them or not. and as far as i've seen showbread hasn't posted anything.

besides i'm on the exact opposite end of alabama. 6 hour drive on a weeknight kinda kills it for me (this time at least. *sad*). wonder if they'll be near the gulf coast?

Brandi said...

Well it seemed to work last time... why don't we put down the usernames and passwords we've tried??

Usernames: Acountrydoctor
kafka_trial
einlandarzt

password: thetrial
acountrydoctor
countrydoctor
franzkafka
kafka

rawrawkaholic said...

gah, Florence is almost 5 hours away, I don't think I could convince mom to take me to that one, but she did take us to see Skillet 5 hours away one time when they were playing in Atmore

rawrawkaholic said...

all in favor for an Alabamian Showbread mini-tour?

Liz said...

I am going to see showbread tonight! and Again in september for Cornerstone, Ca. and it shall be amazing!

rawrawkaholic said...

I have done the impossible! I have convinced mom to take me to see Showbread in Florence if I split the travel expenses with her

Cory said...

I'm Excited for you RRAholic!

rawrawkaholic said...

yeah, it's going to cost me around $60 but it's so going to be worth it for Showbread and the Goodnight Fight

rawrawkaholic said...

$66.50 to be exact, plus merch money ha ha ha, so be praying I make some good $$$$$$ this month

rawrawkaholic said...

uh oh Cory's comment got deleted by a death head, wonder what it could've been

rawrawkaholic said...

woah, I just remembered something

did you notice the Josef K., thing? are there missing letters, or do we know his full name?

valerie said...

i'm pretty sure that's the only way he's mentioned in the book. just a K.

rawrawkaholic said...

alrighty then, we really need to figure out this clue

Mary said...

I just got home from my birthday trip. I didn't miss too much. What did Cory's comment say that would make them delete it...?

kristin said...

i don't know. but i've been grounded from the computer until today =/ sorry guys! i'm back now though.

rawrawkaholic said...

welcome back to those who are gone

dudepal2021 said...

so im hoping that im gonna get to see them on teusday could anyone tell me if the uniform is still black jeans and the white t with the emblem? also cornerstone ca, ive got 2 and a half months to plan for that one.

pertaining to the heads of death im in countdown mode, which means im being lazy

Cory said...

Well... I believe my last comment said (This is really funny that Josh would delete it...) The Goodnight Fight "was not up to par with their live show." Only in harsher words.

I hope this doesn't get deleted, but if it does I'll laugh.

kristin said...

Haha... well if it does get deleted, at least I got a chance to read it.

valerie said...

so!
who all thinks we should be waiting for more transmissions and who thinks we should be putting something together with what we have?

sara said...

awww, don't talk bad about the goodnight fight! that's like talking bad about arkansas, which is like talking bad about me! [and josh/patrick since they have a band with landon haha]. but im joking, not everyone can play a perfect show everytime :]

anddd, for right now, im waiting, because we haven't gotten a whole accomplished from the first two transmissions...and three has been a pretty significant number in the game, so im waitin to see what the next transmission says.

Vincenzo said...

New clue please

Cory said...

Well... I think it's ALWAYS good to look back on what we have. So, I think we should do that... But it makes me sad-Either we are really slow or "The IP" just doesn't post things very quickly. Because I keep coming back and nothing's happening.

Liz said...

So guys I am really sad that "The spinal cord perception" is sold out and for now out of print becuase I really wanted to buy it...

So clues, I've been thinking about all the clue (gasp! shocking I know!) and well I haven't been able to come up with anything substantial. soooo, I'll keep thinking about it.

P.S. Showbread was amazing Firday night!

Cory said...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
Bibliography_of_Franz_Kafka

That is a link to the list of works by franz kafka. I'm betting we'll see about 13 more of these titles... Because he wrote a TON of stuff.

so far I was trying username/password combinations with these:

thetrial
acountrydoctor
franzkafka
the_trial
a_country_doctor
franz_kafka

Liz said...

Was there a newer password for the oreb01 account besides aberro? cuz I tried to get in several times and it did not work.

Liz said...

oh never mind... I remember what the new one was....

Liz said...

So... I missed a few things at the very begining... like the very first couple of username/passwords we had to figure out. did I miss anything really important? I know I missed sending in my info to get my name on the list and junk... but what else did I miss? Sadly I will probably miss out if you guys get anything else kewl in the mail... and I will shed a tear :(

valerie said...

liz, a few posts ago there was a picture of some handwritten words, the first letter of each spelled out:
savemesavemesaveme
and that's the oreb password.
tell me where you did start following along and i'll try and fill you in, you can email or myspace me. =)

Liz said...

Well, I started "trying" to follow along when the last post was may 26th... but the key word is trying! I am blonde and it take me a little longer for thing to click in my mind (lol... not all dumbs are blonde though) Anyway I did not understand anything untill someone set up that Showbreadupdate e-mail then the light went on..... so yah....

Thanks Valerie for your help! it is mucho appreciated! my myspace in myspace.com/lizrocks

P.S. I promise this will be my last comment for the day! (maybe)

Cory said...

Did anybody here go to C-stone b-sides me?

dudepal2021 said...

im hoping to make it out to cornerstone cali, but tomorw night for sure in orangeville. anybody know current band uniform?

Mary said...

I'm pretty sure the band uniform is still the black pants and white t-shirt with the raw rock symbol on it.

dudepal2021 said...

thanks for letting me know, when today started i wasnt sure i was gonna make it, but now the cars full, im stoked.

valerie said...

new transmission!
it's creepy, whatdya think?

and
does anyone have any for sure details on upcoming showbread shows? i was googling around and noticed that a place in WA and MD both claim to have them on the same day in aug... that would totally require a delorean with a flux capacitor if they're doing both shows, ha!

valerie said...

where's everybody!?

there's a new abluo video.

annnnd "anorexia nervosa" still fits

but that doesn't mean it's it, of course, =)

Matt said...

Josh seems to have some facination with Franz Kafka, I've read a lot of his stuff and it was amazing. but he mentions works by him twice in these emails and also refers to the metamorphesis in the song sampsa meets kafka
