ha! what a coincidence, that's almost exactly where i'm at in part of my bible reading right now.i wonder, though, if 'labeled by' means we labeled something or it is labeled after us.
I think what happens with the whole thing is that nothing is set in stone as to what the next clue will be. It depends on how we react to the previous clue(s). I think that is why a few posts back it said, "We follow you." So the name to the receptacle must be something that we came up with.
valerie... you're smart. you pretty much said it exactly... i tried what you said and boom.
whoa! haha and i didn't even know it at the time. thanks! wow!
ps i ♥ dostoevsky!!
...but i'm stuck again. =/
Gosh, that was way easier than we made it out to be.You think maybe they just want us to think the clues are getting harder so we'll over think them?
i don't think so. it was hard to understand what the mp3 was saying, for me anyways. =)what's next?
It says: "the master is self.themaster_themaster"self_self seems to be a valid yahoo account.
themaster_themaster is a valid account too. it seems like the pass is in/from/concerning that text from dostoevsky's the idiot.
Wait, What?!?!? I missed something didn't I?
Liz. Yeah, Valerie figured out the e-mail account that "nothing" was the password for.
This is just sort of coincidental, but I'd never heard of Dostoyevsky or his book The Idiot until I was walking around in Barnes & Noble yesterday and I thought it looked interesting. hah
i can't believe it the email/pass were that easy...hah. wait so since it says the master is self. maybe iammyownmaster is being used again perhaps?
I'm sorry I must be blonde, cuz i am still lost. someone wanna clue me in? maybe send it to the showbread update account?? pretty please?
Maybe Sara.I don't know what the last password we had for iammyownmaster was. If someone does, please check it to see if either it's been changed, or if there is a new message.
yea matty i couldn't remember the last password for the account, so definitely if anyone does they should check it.
it was paulofrancesca... it hasnt changed
oh ok, thanks liz.
Thanks Liz.Well there goes that idea.Did anyone help you get into the new account yet?
Wow... I feel less stupid now... I figured out the e-mail....
oh ok cool. yea i can't believe it took this long for us all to figure out gosh. but ok that ideas out. isself_isselfis also a valid email.does anyone else think that they just make all of these extra emails so that we'll get confused and try to figure out their passwords? that's what it seems like...haha.
nah, i don't think we're on a goose chase or anything because everytime we figure out an email or password, we get a little more insight into what the heads are doing.any ideas as far as the self and master thing?
well it say pass==.. and then the quote... so the password must be somewhere in there.. so at least we have that to go off of... maybe it will be like last time and we got the password first and then in a seperate clue the e-mail adress??
In the "report" email there is a cent sign instead of an apostrophe at the end of the email in the word master's. I wonder if that means anything?
oh i didnt mean it like that valerie, the emails we do get into are always helpful :] i just ment i wonder if they make some extra emails to throw us off. but i was joking about that anyways.but yea, i was thinking maybe that the password would be 'theidiot' or something along those lines, just where the quotes are from...
geez, i'm slow. i was the last one to catch on to what the new email was.. ha. i got it now. thank you guys.
that was way too easy
so... who's PC? there's obviously 2 of them. and how come one "themaster" is smaller than the other one? does that mean one is caps? are email accounts case-sensitive, or just the passwords?k sorry, lots of questions.
i was thinking pc was 'primary concern' or something like that.
ok i guess i must be really tired cause i have no clue what the new email is.. can someone email it to me please? firstname.lastname@example.org
wow.. I def. made things harder than what they were.
Well just throwing things out there again...gospeltruth, and themaster_themaster are two usernames I have tried so far.With these passwords:climbagain, gospeltruth, theidiot, dostoevsky, themaster, idiotI could've made mistakes, so if you want to double check just in case, I just wanted to put some thoughts out there!
Oops, that was me that posted from the followers account.. forgot to sign out. Okay, going on what androo said, the cent sign is in the word masters, and I don't think that is just a general mistake. Here's another thought. master¢s = 1 cent = penny = made of copper = "coppery smell of blood". Maybe I'm overthinking again?? Good night.
brandi, I think you may be onto something, as money can lead to greed and greed leads to selfishness.
Also Prince Myshkin(the man that is not named on the train in the passage of "The Idiot") he is poor when he first arrives in Russia.
wait. I just discovered we got a new account figured out...what is it? I'm lost.
wow nevermind....obvious much....why couldn't I figure that out?
I've been trying and trying, but can't get anything...What has everybody been trying?I've been using:Add:themaster_themasterisself_isselftheidiotpass:theidiotGospeltruthand the names in the email.Double check me to make sure none of those combos are the one.PS--Has anyone been getting WAY more into reading because of this whole thing?I just went out and bought Sylvia Plath's "The Bell Jar", Anthony Burges' "A Clockwork Orange", and The Divine Comedy.
the cent sign may be a new symbol in the "+ _ _ _" thing.
Uh... I just went and researched the NIN thing... that is crazy.
i know "the master is self" has something to do with iammyownmaster. and we've also had "my will be done" which was a clue that iammyownmaster had a new password. so i know this is connected to that somehow...
idunno.when i first saw the message i was like, "oh, this'll be a snap! the master and... uh..."dang.=)
The Bell Jar is one of my favorite books.. sorry thats a little random. i'm keeping up with all this, but i've tried new username/pass combos and havent come up with anything yet. im thinkin maybe we need a new clue like last time when it was split up..
i was thinking the cent sign was a new symbol for the title as well. well have to wait for a new abluo to find out. as far as the idiot, i have no idea
nice use of the word abluo =]
That would mean that there would be an apostraphe in abluo because the cent sign replaced an apostraphe.
Oh yeah we still need to see where the "r" from Mark goes...
when'd we get mark?
in the email titled 004
we got Mark a long time ago. The 'r' was replaced with a square.
yeah im dumb i was thinking that was john not mark.
ok. i'm with cory, putting up what we've tried. i was thinking thatthemaster_themasteris a new account? so for passwords i've tried:theidiottheidiotchapter1theselfselfidiotself (haha, who knows)ego (latin for self)dostoevsky dostoyevsky myshkinlevnikolayevichmyskinpavlicheffmammon (yes it's stretching, but the text was talking about money...)what have you guys tried?
I don't think they would just give us the username. they never have before.
The Bell Jar is a great book. I'm reading Josh's book right now.
you're right mary- they haven't given the name yet, so that's probably not it. hmm. matty's idea that it's self_self sounds good. i'll try some with those.
So long my friends... Cornerstone comes this MONDAY and I shall be away. Be good.
i have a question. and i don't know why i didn't think of it till now. but"the coppery smell of the blood"is that a reference to the red horse vaccine in the NIN thing?
this could be digging too deep but...Rogozhin is the character in "the idiot" that represents satan, the "master" that the Heads are talking about.
bryan! i tried that as a password, also his nickname rogozha,(gosh russian names!!) but chances are i misspelled it. worth another try.
or, hmm, it could be an account. *sigh.
so i was looking at the email and noticed that "we answer to ourselves" spelled out eros and eros was the primordial god of lust, love, and intercourse; he was also worshipped as a fertility deity.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eros_(god)thought id throw that out there
awesome Jon-eric! That could be a password or something.
OKKKKKKKK!!! what the heck?!i figured out an account/password that HAS to be with this, i mean there's no chance it's some random something else. but there are NO messages from the heads there. what's that about?
gaaaaaaaaah, it's really killin me. i mean it says "hi Death" just like all the other ones when you sign in. so it's SOMETHING. but nothing there.
well i was trying some combinations of 'rogozhin' and 'the master' and 'self', in the way the last email saidthemaster_themasterand the password is the title of the text. sheesh, i was all happy dancing until i saw that there were no messages there. :D wonder what it means if anything?
i'm sure it has something to do with it. and your clues didn't help me much... i still can't figure it out.
yeah, me too, clues didn't help much haha
mkay. myspace me kristin, it won't let me message you.
do i have your myspace thing? i don't think i do...
nvm i got it
i suppose it could be confounded data? =)
can I message you too Val?
wait nevermind, you already did haha
whats your myspace val i didnt quite understand your hint either
val, based on your clues i got in with "theidiot" as the password... is that now what it was? there was a letter in there...
I am still confused as to what the account name is. Couldn't someone just post it?
Sorry, I found out what it was and yes there is a message in it.
cool! there is an email in there. i wonder why it wasn't in there before... oh well.
It says that the message was sent tomorrow the 25. That's strange but given the contents of the message I guess that makes some sense.
it just says "awaiting signal".
it probably means there's gonna be another email tomorrow.
Also, there is a message in the trash. It is the same as the message in the inbox but with big question marks.
Actually it looks like the message in the trash is from someone who got into the account and sent a message to deaths_head003.
yeah it does.
ah! heh, i thought i would quit thinking about it today but i had to check one more time.and i'm glad i did! there's a message now! what does it mean? what signal?
I don't see a message with big question marks. Did someone delete it?
It was in the trash bin and it looked like it was someone who got in to the account and sent a message to deaths_head003. It wasn't there last time I checked though so the author must have deleted it since it had no meaning.
hmm. well now i'm just as curious as earlier. but- now i feel really bad for being like, "waaah, boohoo, there's no message!!"and i apologize sincerely. i was being impatient and posting too much. =/
ahhhh, I feel incredibly stupid 'cause I can't figure it out.=/
grrrrrrr i have no clue what the email addy is... someone please email@example.com
yeah when this was starting i made it into an account before there was any message in it. im so glad that you had teh same experiance i had doing that. however i wont check the actuall contents of this new message til tomorw
i guess i lied, cause i did check it out. uhhh im a little concerned with the message in the trash that said the password has been changed recently. like maybe that was confounding the data. just making a false account. or the message awaiting signal means its the 004 waiting to get thier go ahead with whatevers next. ps 300th comment, big deal
I was a little concerned about it too...
I think we'll be awaiting another voice clip, and I still think the "that blood has" has some signifigcance sooner or later
Woo! Great job! I wonder what's next...
rawrawkaholic- it won't let me reply to you! add me or email me.
I think there needs to be a new blog post so I don't have to scroll so far down to read the last comments :)
i'm in! ..and now there's nothin. meh. how exciting. :-/
...i'm really wondering what the signal is!!! or at least what/who the signal is for.
I'm going to be gone for a week starting Friday. I bet something big is going to happen when I'm gone...
yea so i still dont know the new email.. can someone please help?
I will. Do you have a myspace or anything?
ima be gone for two weeks after tonight. not sure if i'll be able to get here. could you guys continue to forward stuff to showbreadupdate? Would really appreciate it.
email it to firstname.lastname@example.org!
n/m i already got it!
ok i dont know about you guys but im ready for a new clue!
EEK!!!! new email! forwarding it to the showbreadupdate account now
Josef K. seems to be a character from one of Kafka's books called "The Trial". Maybe it could be a clue for a new e-mail.
Also the text in the second email is from another book by Kafka called "A Country Doctor".
