Definitely leaving reference to the Myspace blog.

valerie said...

by reference to the blog do you mean like: "we're looking at a march/april release date" ?

ahhh, i can't wait.

I'm Yours Red said...

yeah if they the death head is saying they might be too late i think that they are referring to the myosace blog about the album release date. so they are failing in preventing this from happening

sara said...

yea that's got to be it. i wonder how they plan to "arm forces"

Cory said...

Yeah my first thought was... "October, November, December, January, February, March... That's talking about Showbread's album"

leonawendy said...

ahh I can't wait until the new album comes out!

Jarek said...

Anyone else notice the difference in the default of Josh's DIES project?

Jarek Pastor said...

That was me, just... showed up a bit different.

Mary said...

Yeah, I saw the picture and I right away I knew something was going on with this, so it might have significance.

Cory said...

Yeah, if I had photo editing programs, I would put it through a couple filters to see if anything showed up, but I don't... Can somebody else do that?

jeremy said...

If I had any idea what kind of filter to use, I'd try.
Any ideas?

It could just be a cool new pic, might not have significance.

richysanx said...

sooo far nothing but i will keep at it
i've tried every filter in photoshop :/
even tried messing with the settings in i photo:/

Cory said...

:(

Vincenzo said...

Try the "Grain" filter.

It's either that or he used scanlines, which is sort of a do it yourself filter.

Mary said...

I'm think that might be taking it too far. maybe.

Cory said...

Well, NIN used scrambled words and numbers in their messages that had to be put through special sound filters, so I wouldn't put it past Josh

bryn said...

yes. its back.

Cory said...

I'm confused... What's back?

valerie said...

...hmmm, well my birthday was back yesterday. =)

jeremy said...

Gah, I'm working at it.
But no filters seem to work right..

If only Josh would give us a hint to how to get something out of this.

jeremy said...

i found something.
the numbers 123 in the upper-middle of the first distortion. i can't make out what's in front of it. it sort of looks like RISEN123, but the N forms the 1. so maybe it's just RISEN23.
but i'm still not entirely sure.

jeremy said...

oops. link was messed

jeremy said...

sorry, last comment for now.
i'm almost positive it says

RiSeN23

sara said...

wow could you maybe...circle it or something? i just don't see it.

[happy birthday val!]

valerie said...

thanks!

and wow, i thought that whole pic filtering idea was just way out there, but i actually do see a number 23, jeremy!

so... he's discordian? ha, of course not.

but i do see a 23.

sara said...

maybe im just blind...? haha.

Mary said...

wow good eye, I don't see it but good job haha. So maybe that ties into the we are UNDER attack thing...

Cory said...

Maybe you could upload it to Flickr.com so we could see it in it's full resolution?

Mary said...

Showbread's new myspace blog studio update, at the top it says: Pass:transmission14

valerie said...

go go go go read showbread's blog. number one it's amazing, and numero dos it's got something about a transmission that i can't figure out!!!

Mary said...

and also, throughout the post there at words with _ in it.

guita_rs
rec_orded
mo_stly
cou_ld
Flamin_g
st_ill
genr_es
suspiciously_
d_issonance
mo_st
went_
Co_nsidering
wonder_ful

It stops about half way through it.

Mary said...

I really don't see anything out of the ordinary in transmission 14. But does anyone know where, "Someone must have been telling lies about Josef K., he knew he had done nothing wrong but, one morning, he was arrested." is from?

Mary said...

last comment.
to tie things together we have...

the _ things
Pass:transmission14
the 23 in the DIES pictures
We are UNDER attack

anything else I'm forgetting?

valerie said...

josef k was the main character in kafka's the metamorphosis

i guess that's the pass for something?

brokenbuthealing said...

There's a new account. If you take the letter before every underscore, you get "a country doctor". And that line is actually from Kafka's "The Trial". Try a couple combinations and you'll figure it out.

Mary said...

therelocationbox

hmm...

valerie said...

aack! i totally meant the trial. gregor was the guy from metamorphosis. sorry. negative points for me.

ok, i'm going to try that, thank you!

brokenbuthealing said...

No idea what "therelocationbox" means though. any ideas?

valerie said...

it's in use as a yahoo account, and some transmissions 8 said the keys to three boxes would be stored in transmission 1. so maybe that's the first box?

Mary said...

well they do keep talking about the keys and boxes. The key is in transmission one or something like that. So maybe that is the first box? I don't know...

Mary said...

gah you beat me to it haha

valerie said...

pshh, i'm on a roll. i meant IN transmission 8 it said that.

=)

brokenbuthealing said...

Well, i suppose that means we have to wait for transmission 1?

Mary said...

yeah...don't know what's up with the relocating thing. But I have to go so I'll look into stuff tomorrow I guess.

rawrawkaholic said...

I believe it's another account


"the ip is on the move.
prepare a store box labeled in initial transmissions. i will seal the key in transmission number one.
we will finalize relocation when the time comes to open the box.
END FEED===" from Transmission 10

sara said...

i can't get the new account username/pass ... maybe i'm really tired, but i know it's right in front of my face.

brokenbuthealing said...

Sounds like we're going to get a key to a box in transmission 1 and then the 'relocation' will begin. hmmm...

leonawendy said...

ok so I'm not seeing a 1 in that pic... idk if I'm just really tired or what... but i see a 2, upside down 3,4,5,7,r,n, and w

Cory said...

I'm not sure... But I think the picture thing may be a false lead, but keep it on hand.

jeremy said...

Alright, here's the fixed one.

Hopefully this makes it a little easier to see.
I'll go check out the other things you guys found now, too.


Ooops, Happy belated birthday, Val!

leonawendy said...

...i'm still not sure about the picture...

Mary said...

yeah me either...

jeremy said...

Neither am I, but we can't rule it out yet. We need to see where all this is going.

&&Any help with the new email account? I can't seem to get that one.

bryn said...

Studio Update 2 says:

pass: transmission14

..i looked in that transmission and haven't found anything that fits yet.

jakimus prime said...

i say rule out the picture.
i recently learned in my psychology class some stuff about hidden and subliminal messages, and it said that if the person is looking for a hidden message, even if its not there, then the person can usually find one.

i say the picture is for looks, and nothing was put into those scrambled boxes.

Anonymous said...

Could the _ 's in Studio Update 2 be a clue?...

Anonymous said...

the letters in front of the _'s spell: acountydoctor

Vincenzo said...

Go to Showbread's MySpace. One of the last couple comments is Tae and it says "The boy is coming back."

So is he back in the band because that would be really awesome.

Cory said...

Yeah I'm confused about that myself. I agree it would be cool but apparently it was God in the first place telling him to leave... So, yeah.

Mary said...

For those of you who seems to be behind. We already got an email address out of the _'s. Oh my word, I'll be soo happy if Tae comes back.

Cory said...

So, yeah... Should we be finding a new box:

therelocationbox

?

valerie said...

i think that is the box and we're waiting for the key. =)

and this doesn't have anything to do with anything, but... i think showbread put crackrocks in they music. i listen to it and never get tired of it. plus i haven't been to a show in a few months and it hurts me. causing me pain. that's like, withdrawals. now what?
heh... ;)

leonawendy said...

whats the password?

sara said...

the password to what?

jeremy said...

To they new email account.
I can't figure it out, either.

Vincenzo said...

Watch the new video that Showbread has posted on their MySpace.

A little more than halfway through if you pause it, it shows what I believe is some of the track listing. The titles all start with "THE"

These are what I can see:

"The sky"
"The dirt"
"The pig"
"The flies"
"The goat"
"The death"
"The end"
"The beginning"

In the blog they posted that they'll be playing some new songs during their last four shows. Too bad they are no where near Ohio.

bryn said...

i can't wait. ima see em Oct 27th. I hope they play some new songs..

giverny said...

"This record is influenced by Anthony Burgess’ A Clockwork Orange, William Peter Blatty’s The Exorcist, Nine Inch Nails’ The Downward Spiral, Ridley Scott’s Alien, the inside of a slaughterhouse, a mother holding her newborn child, and most of all the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This is not a cd full of music. It is a visceral, sensory experience."

I feel like such an insider..

Cory said...

“The Sky”
“The Dirt”
“The Dirt Α”
“The Pig”
“The Flies”
“The Goat”
“The Death”
“The End”
“The End Ω”
“The Beginning”

Cory said...

Has everyone left?

sara said...

of course not.

Cory said...

I was expecting more speculation as to track listings

sara said...

ah yes. well, i'm not sure if that is the real track listing or not. i mean, i think they would have been more discrete a bout it. but maybe we were meant to see it. who knows though, i'd be way excited if that was it.

Cory said...

That's what I was thinking... That it was intentional. Plus, how hard would it be to accidentally get a shot of it in a short video clip?

sara said...

not hard at all. but then again, how easy would it be to accidentally get it in a shot. who knows! i'd be way more excited if it were intentional, though.

I'm Yours Red said...

i didnt think that it was the track list, however it mighte be a clue for a password, since were gonna need three soon.

sara said...

so i'm going back to something kinda old real quick. i know for a while we were trying to figure out how that picture of Josh on the "DIES" myspace related to this whole thing. and well, maybe we should be looking more at where the photoshoped stuff is, rather than what the filters are.

what i mean is
his mouth is blurred out.
part of his tattoo of a heart is all messed up. along with part of his neck. and also one of his eyes.

maybe its saying something? like at the very beginning of this blog when that picture of josh was covered up with a death head moth.

i'm just guessing.

I'm Yours Red said...

they actually signed onto the milita myspace the other day, maybe there will be an update there. perhaps a new audio track!
