Rob's Friends on MySpace?

It looks like Jamie has a MySpace page. Here is a link to her page, and all of her friends. All of her friends have links to each other, and they have comments in each others photos.

I'll leave this as homework for you all this weekend to see if you can find anything important!

Dig away!

Some are set to private, they do accept your friend requests.

More pictures...

Nonya said...

Interesting

Warrior said...

They must have unlocked the profiles shortly after they were discovered.. so they aren't taking friend requests, but at least now you can see all their pictures..

Jamie has a picture with the letters "FG" and a symbol above it.. I'm assuming its from one of those individuals who goes around and takes club photos... clue?

j.miskowicz said...

Crediting your source is fantastic.

Fat Lazy Guy said...

Hmm, I was able to request friendship, but I have no idea if they'll accept.

Warrior said...

I believe Hawk is Jason, and Jason is his older brother. Hence the "Love J". Brotherly love

They very well might accept, however I think it might detract form the experience if they are getting spam comments concerning "iPhone's" and "Macy's Gift Cards" ... they will most likely use myspace for further clues best not to contaminate it with tons of junk

Deletia said...

I get myspace telling me that each of them have 8 or 9 friends, but then only 6 or 7 are displayed. Same thing with posted messages. Anyone else get that? Or have an explanation?

mike said...

im not sure if these will reveal anything much. i mean, if the events havent happened yet, how could there be clues?

on a side note... 1 of lily's blogs has excerpts from subway conversations... if you look at it, its the exact layout as www.overheardinny.com (theres no little chubby boy who asks for a spare chicken... the only time that happened was in '05 and it was a "hobo" who asked.) hahah

You can't drink just six!

mike said...

deletia,
good eye... they all seem to be missing two friends... some of the photos also show a deleted account that once left a comment.

nat said...

this doesnt have to do w. the myspace pages but i've been working on trying to figure out clues thru the new movie posters. and if you look in the dark clouds in the right hand top corner..there seems to be a skull like face. similar to the ones in previous photos. what do you guys think?

mike said...

nat, i see what you mean. it looks like some kind of skull (animal?) comming downward.
upon looking back at your prev comment, i looked at the poster in depth and noticed something. one of the buildings has a very similar face to the one in the hair of the two women.
here's a photoshop of the two photos side-by-side
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v627/akiraazn15/cloverfield/hairandsmoke.jpg

i know we've all agreed that the hair-face was just hair and lighting, but its a little creepy don't you think?

robofish said...

It's confirmed that Hawk and Rob Hawkins are brothers. In Hawk's profile a comment from Rob Hawkins says "hey i talked to mom today. she says you need to call aunt peg and say thank you"

Ange said...

I'm curious as to the number of friends shown, why is it different for all of them. The blogs are weird too, on is calling all people to join them at a Hillary Clinton engagement tonight. Someone should go ;). This better not be all about ambiguous blogging like Mandrake Wig was...those things took forever to figure out.
So Far:
*Beth McIntyre is a "swinger" who appears to like a cocktail or two, and she also wants to meet her future self.

*In the comment Jamie left to Rob there is a photo, you can view HERE with 3 others at photobucket.

Also, Kepa, is that you?

nat said...

yeah mike i see what you're saying too! i mean, sure..we all could be wrong about the "hidden faces" but it's just odd to think that there are SO many and they all resemble e/o. hmmm...

&this whole myspace thing is def. a way to get people to research and become more obsessed w. this movie. lol. so obviously the marketers of this movie are doing an amazing job. what better way to promote than w. myspace..something everyone goes to daily? & i'm j/w if the myspaces of the characters have anything to do w. the storyline of the movie?

Warrior said...

The Hillary Clinton engagement was on June 22nd.

Of the two profiles not shown, if you scroll through their "view all friends" list alphabetically the profiles deleted began with the letter "J" and the other "S". Most likely other characters.

rublind said...

Uh... where did this come from?

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

looking at the friends lists...

Rob - only one not friends w/ Tom
Hud - only one not friends w/ Lenadia

Jamie - the only person who has a friends list that matches her "jamie has ___ friends". She is also the only one who seems to have used a profile editor

(and again...) Everyone other than Jamie seems to be missing 2 friends

jordanh said...

a few things i found rob does not know tom and tom has over 9 mill friends ? and 3 of them say there favorite show is lost

Zelda Gamer Monthly said...

Hey Mike, a few hours ago you said that we may not be getting clues from these Myspace accounts. However, I think that as they comment more and more, we may get clues to other websites, which will hopefully kick off a full-fledged ARG.

mike said...

hahah, yah i know.. i still dont think we'll get many clues of whats going to happen, or what the monster might be..
but its sure fun looking for clues. ive been in the office (its barely 450pm here in california) searching clues and photoshopping images since after lunch.. after all. it is a friday and im a slacker

kxbarillas said...

There are 3 distinct scratches on the back of Lady Liberty and 3 identical scratches on the first building on the left of the destruction. So we're dealing with a 3 clawed monster.

chucklez3 said...

the myspaces also reference dinosaurs a few times, as well.

so.....maybe a creature that time forgot, so-to-speak??

Adam said...

i would say it is the movie. it is obvious these profiles were just opened, they only have 9 friends each and around 3-4 comments.

Adam said...

and each of them are from NYC ...

chucklez3 said...

yeah, and the "comments" are actually done as if they're a regular conversation. no one comments like that on myspace!!!!

hahaha.

Adam said...

And especially since there is a Hudson PLATT, and a Jamie LASCANO. That is to much in common not to be cloverfield...
And isnt that hawk guy a famous actor? Dont know his name...
And quoted from hawks page...
Hawk's Blurbs
About me:
Yeah I'm really not into this whole myspace thing. My girl made me set it up. She says I'll be addicted. I betchya I forget I even have an account. So take no offense if you message me or whatever and I don't respond for three months

Now, if his girlfriend said hes addicted, then wouldn't she be addicted to? But for some reason she only has like 4 comments on her profile?

Adam said...

as quoted from robs blog :O

i need to buy a video camera

robofish said...

The store is open at slusho.jp!!! Check it out!

robofish said...

Also Happy talk and Flavors are up. In flavors it asks you to make your own flavor. A puzzle?

Ange said...

When someone MySpace blogs, usually on their blog page you can see their sign-up dates:

Jamie Lascano Signup Date: 07/23/07

Rob Hawkins Signup Date: 06/13/07

JJ Hawkins Signup Date: 06/13/07

Marlena Diamond Signup Date: 06/13/07

Those are the ones that have dates listed. So seems that the majority of these pages were created on June 13th. Is that date significant?

Adam said...

1.37. A man is running along a corridor with a piece of paper in his hand. The lights flicker and the man drops to his knees and cries out, "Oh no!" (MP)

1.37 answer: The man is delivering a pardon, and the flicker of the lights indicates that the person to be pardoned has just been electrocuted. (See also #1.31.)


To beth's comment on Robs m space.

robofish said...

Also on the flavors page in the top left corner if you hover over a star with your mouse it says: New Flavors Just Added! than dissapears.

Ange said...

On the Slusho Happy Talk page it seems there are only a certain amount of "Your Happy Talk" then they repeat...Clearly these are "consumer" quotes, but there is one that is freaky "Slusho is people!!!". Weird.

kckid125 said...

SLUSHO ALERT!

New page on Slusho.jp ! click happy talk!!!!

http://www.slusho.jp/

kckid125 said...

Here's what I'm talking about:
http://img408.imageshack.us/img408/299/slushobp9.png

And there are ads now too, where they there before???

Ange said...

robofish I see that blinking star that you are talking about. It shows up each time you make a new flavor. For me it just pops then goes away, I don't even go near it with the mouse.

kckid125 Yes that page was just activated a little bit ago as was the store as robofish pointed out a couple of posts up :D. Good screen cap though!

kckid125 said...

and there's a store now too!
http://store.slusho.jp/

And a flavor's page! and the explosion above the cup, havn't we seen that before....

http://img262.imageshack.us/img262/9449/slusho2iz9.png

NEVERMIND on the ADs, they were on the imageshack page for me, whoops.

robofish said...

That's not an explosion. Its the secret ingrediant. Looks kind of like a flower.

NSavage143 said...

ok so on "huds" myspace ( www.myspace.com/hudsonplatt ) in his "about" me he talks about how people always forget his name..even tho its after a famous river.

The Hudson River


..which does run through New York.

any ties here??? what'd you guys think?

kckid125 said...

The store has an email:
STORE@SLUSHO.JP

robofish said...

Yea I saw that. I tihnk its mandatory if you want to sell stuff. IDK. But on the history page the whale is thinking of a hammer, and you can click the crab.

NSavage143 said...

http://slushozoom.com/donate.htm

this site comes up when you click on the 'hot bath' sign at www.slushozoom.com

on the page it reads:

"At the end of the world, after all my efforts were wasted.
What I would not have given for just a simple bath.

PRIMA !

Look at me, you’re going to make it through this, I’m not going to let anything happen to you.
You will receive what you need."

Zelda Gamer Monthly said...

Anyone notice the goof at the store?

http://store.slusho.jp/v/big.html

The hat's slogan is different.

robofish said...

Ha nice find. "You Can't Just Drink Six". Funny. Also slushozoom.com is a total game jack.

Genifer said...

That's so weird...if I go to Slusho.jp, I don't get the new stuff....if I click on the store, it still tells me that it's updating fresh for me.

kckid125 said...

I posted this below, but I wanted to bump it, because it's weird:

Wait a sec, how'd writing get on the back of the photos if the attack happend minutes later? Did they run to their PCs and print off the photos to write on, and if so, how'd "the attack" photos get with them?

robofish said...

There are such camera that print out the picture as soon as you take it.

Genifer said...

Ok...got slusho.jp to work for me. In the Slusho happy talk part, there is a reference to Hokkaido. When I looked that up, Hokkaido has a squid festival.


Sorry...still holding out for everybody's favorite mollusk deity.

Zelda Gamer Monthly said...

As awesome as it would be for Lovecraft to be represented by JJ Abrams, I think that Ziz/Leviathan/Behemoth is a better-grounded theory.

kckid125 said...

"""There are such camera that print out the picture as soon as you take it.""""

True, but these don't look like polaroids.

I just ordered my slusho t-shirt! Can't wait. Maybe they'll be some clues with it, or better yet some delicious Slusho!

Zelda Gamer Monthly said...

Yeah, I think I'm gonna order a hat and shirt tomorrow. I want the hat mostly for the messed-up slogan on the back. :P

Justin Smith said...

Maybe I'm looking way too far into this but here's something I found. If you take the links on slusho.jp before the new ones were added and convert them to binary by their working status you get 101100. This equals 44. If you take the time from the newscast 12:32 and add 12 and 32 you get 44. 44 B.C. is the year Julius Caesar died and the Roman Republic fell. Jamie also said she used to live in Weymouth, Ma which is near Plymouth, Ma. There is the U.S. State Route 44 which runs from Plymouth to NY.

Maybe I'm crazy, but just thought it was interesting at least.

Justin Smith said...

Also, everyone but Jamie and Hud have 7 pics with 3 of them having comments.

I've read some stuff about 163 (the news channel (1) + 63 degrees) which also occurs on slusho.jp at the bottom where there's one cup that stands out then the sentence with "six" at the end and then 3 cups that stand out. Then many of the profiles where created on June 13th (6,13) I think this may actuall be 7 and 3 like the myspace pics, or something like that.

Amanda said...

I know this sounds far-fetched, but bear with me here. Not sure if this has been posted yet.

Listen to the sound in the trailer; what animal sounds like that (without thinking about if said animal could actually attack anything)?

A whale (echolocation).

On the slusho.jp site, you can now access the Happy Talk, Store, and Flavors links. On the Happy Talk link, different quotes are displayed. One says "Are you one of us???" Another says "Am I a whale??" And a third says "Help.. I had 7-- is that bad??"

In the history, you see that the creator's mother was called "Smallest Whale." Her son had a dream where he drank slusho and grew from a 'small fish' to an "Enormous Whale." And it says that, when you drink slusho, you "become a small whale" like the creator's mother because you want to drink large amounts of slusho. Also, the ingredient that made slusho was discovered on the ocean floor, under great cold and pressure. The son was an ocean scientist.

On the released official teaser poster, you can see that the wake in the water is made from a huge creature, but how this could be something with fins is beyond me. Honestly, it makes no sense when you think about the logistics of a whale attacking a city, but to be honest, there are tons of hints that point to it.

So? A mutant whale? Sounds to stupid, I know, but what do you all make of all these clues lining up to suggest at least something that would resemble it?

Katie said...

not that this is anything really, but i did happen to notice that almost all of their myspaces had something to do with "cats" in the general, tv, movies, music, etc sidebars.

ex: cat power, thundercats...and so on.

just found it odd.

and i think it was beth's that listed something odd in the general section like "useless information [never know when it can come in handy]" or something very DOH! of her to say to us. haha.

*heart*

kxbarillas said...

I have an odd theory, and even though the whole ethan haas thing has been denied by JJ, i feel the need to breathe some life into the rumor that it may be connected. Apparently this Alpha Omega game is about a post apocalyptic world after aliens have shown up to fight a war on earth. So my thought is, why can't Alpha Omega be a follow up to the movie? There is just as little info on this game as the movie. far fetched i know... but i'll put it out there for kicks.

Danny said...

i agree with amanda those were the conclusions i drew...but i noticed when i turned over the love jamie letter on 1-18-108 site i saw something on the top right corner like a message...its hard to make out

Danny said...

i think that the myspace pages will reveal facts in time...like robs trip to japan will make appear in a blog entry

Amanda said...

I'm just stuck on this random whale stuff. The myspaces are pretty interesting though; I think your blog prediction is a good one, Danny.

Amanda said...

I'm not sure what you're talking about though, with the message on the love Jaime pic..

kxbarillas said...

On Rob's Myspace, it says his occupation is in marketing. So he's probably marketing slusho.

Joe said...

What would be the motivation for the monster to raid nyc? Food? Food for the kids? Revenge? Insanity? Looking at the monstrous02.jpg high res poster, which is way better than any of the other images here so far, The SOL and the building damage. I am estimating the digits are elongated and the hand alone could be 35-50 feet wide. The head of the SOL is about 260 feet from the ground and she is 35 feet wide at center. I also see a red airborne matrix throughout and blood on Lady Liberty. Could this be a rapidly spreading airborne parasitic virus that is from its blood? Does it turn everyone turn into monster food? Could it be a rapidly mutating viral parasite courtesy of our lost "little whale" and or some help from alien genetic modification while lost at sea? The explosion could be meant to heat things up so she could lay her offspring?

mike said...

zelda Gamer Monthly -

good catch on the hat slogan...

i dont know if this is any connection (its funny how so many comments have that line in it), but remember how JJ came out @ the convention wearing an INFOCOM shirt?
well INFOCOM's first game (Zork) was inspired by a game called Colossal Cave in which the term "You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike" was repeated often with slight variations to wording... could the error in the slogan be related?

also, in that game, the phrase
"Into view there bounces a horrible creature!! Six feet across, it resembles a large blob of translucent white jelly; although it looks massive, it is bouncing lightly up and down as though it were as light as a feather. It is emitting a constant throbbing sound, and it ROARs loudly as it sees you. — this is a reference to Rover from The Prisoner

... i hope all our research and digging isnt about a 6foot tall blob. lol

Zelda Gamer Monthly said...

That would be a neat reference if that was the reason for the hat's rewording.

Disciple said...

Beth's riddle... she mentions it being a lateral riddle...

from wikipedia...

Lateral thinking is a term coined by Edward de Bono, a Maltese psychologist, physician and writer. It first appeared in the title of his book The Use of Lateral Thinking, published in 1967. De Bono defines lateral thinking as methods of thinking concerned with changing concepts and perception. Lateral thinking is about reasoning that is not immediately obvious and about ideas that may not be obtainable by using only traditional step-by-step logic.

robofish said...

Rob answers it on Beths profile. He says something really ague so i will explain it. What he "says" is that the man walks into the hospital. His wife is on life suport. The light go out, so he knows his wife is dead. Than he crys.

robofish said...

erg, let me edit that. vauge not auge. And i meen the power goes out. SO life suport doesnt works. So his wife dies.

Genifer said...

On the Slusho.jp page, if you look at the glowing shape above the cup on the flavors section, it's a lotus. I think the lotus, in Hindu mythology, is a symbol for Vishnu. Vishnu helped Indra fight a giant snake named Vritra. Vritra had 3 heads, but being a snake, I don't think he had any arms with which to toss a statue head. Hmmmmm....

~Rod said...

We've been talking about this here:

http://www.ethanhaas.org/cloverfield3/viewtopic.php?t=512&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0

Here's my own analysis:

Check out Rob's tagline:

"That sounds like something a lampost could do"

That made me think of the comment someone on youtube made about the "demon" between the two girls' heads.

I believe these are legitimate and part of the viral marketing campaign for a couple reasons-

1. The photos are of the characters

2. The profiles were created on or around June 13, 2007- before the trailer release. (Note, there are blog entries prior to June 13)

Here's how I believe these profiles will be marketed:

1. To help us to connect/bond emotionally to the characters prior to seeing the movie.

2. To obviously provide clues, to include why Rob is going to Japan (keep an eye on his blog).

3. And finally, the most brilliant reason of all- purely genius if you ask me- I believe the profiles may be used AFTER the release of the movie, possibly leading up the sequel.

Perhaps any surviving characters will begin to blog where the movie leaves off. Perhaps they will blog their feelings about what happened and what they went through- providing more insight into their experience than the movie reveals.

This is all pure marketing genius, especially if the profiles stay active until the sequel- even if it's just Rob's.

One little tidbit,

I clicked some photos on Jamie's page to see their origin. They are from the Photobucket of:

"sarahnettleute"

sarah nettleute ???

I didn't find any other photos on the pages of the other profiles besides the one in Rob's comments from Jamie. It's also a sarahnettleute photobucket.

Again, I believe these profiles are legit.

Remember-

1. They were created on or around June 13, prior to the trailer release.

2. The profiles that read they were created on June 13 have blog dates of Jan, Feb.

3. Don't forget the photos... especially the photos in Rob's profile. They are of "Rob"!

BTW, "Hawk" speaks of drinking Slusho in his blog.

So, it's probably a drink in the movie.

Oh yeah,

I've been keeping an eye on the "Last Login"s.

ALL of them just switched to July 28.

The logins must be either "automatic" to make the profile look active, or 1 person is controlling them all.

Both make sense to me.

Who knows what "favors" the movie asked of myspace.

God Bless!
~Rod

Genifer said...

I think the slusho reference in Hawk's profile is kind of weird. He never talks about going somewhere to get it...just refers to being at home and chugging a Slusho. So is Slusho something that you can just get at the store and keep in your freezer, or do you have to go to a convenience store or someplace else to get it like an Icee?

~Rod said...

He may have already simply had it with him.

I wonder if it's even like a slushy... or is it more cola-like?

Zelda Gamer Monthly said...

It's more like a slushie. It appeared in the second episode of Alias.

Something that I find rather curious, however. In Happy Talk on slusho.jp, a quote suggests that the drink has not made it State-side. If that is the case, why was Vaughn from Alias able to purchase some from the gas station he and Sydney were in (assuming this is the same universe)? Also, how did Hawk get some if it hasn't made it to America?

Zuvvna said...

the photos that are on myspace for jamie lascano are coming from here, http://s195.photobucket.com/albums/z234/sarahnettleute/
dont know if that helps.

also on the back of the most recent photo on -- the word 'and' and the following 'w' are smudged. again, just noting details.

Tommy D. said...

One of the pictures uses the words "hotness" and "hell". The other picture says to remember who takes care of you which is signed by "J". The "hotness" and "hell" are probably refering to Satan rising up from hell to destroy us all. The "J" is probably refering to Jesus Christ who will be the one to come rescue us from the evil. Hmmmmmmm

Genifer said...

Looking at the poster, there is still debris coming off of the SOL and a wake through the water leading to Manhattan, leading us to believe that the SOL's head had recently been removed, however, it's light outside and we know from the trailer that the SOL's head was thrown when it was dark. Could it be that whatever this is is emanating it's own light that is so bright that it makes it look like daylight? That would tie in with the "steam" photo and the 4th photo as well....

Smackchow said...

Hey all, figured I'd add to the fun. Was reading the random survey on Jamie's myspace and saw these two things...

What was the last text message you received?
This foreboding tale from Linds: "Evil abounds, Demon-Born. Eat two sandwiches."

What is your favorite restaurant?
It's tough to beat the sandwiches at Witchcraft

So I googled, witchcraft, restaurant, nyc and there is a restaurant called 'Wichcraft no "T"...

http://search.cityguide.aol.com/newyork/restaurants/wichcraft/v-191673

Prolly nothing, but an important location maybe, the restaurant's address is on the page.

Plus there was a review written 7/15/2007.

Thought it was interesting.

NiteSea said...

Hey everyone... I'm new over here and still catching up on the latest Cloverfield stuff... was into The Lost Experience last summer, and I can see this is fast becoming the equivalent for 2007...

In regards to the missing "friends" on these myspace pages--warrior noted earlier that there is one that should be under "s" and one under "j". In Beth's blog where she posted the survey, she says the person she's known the longest is someone named "Janelle"... not one of the existing friends linked in this group, so maybe this will be the friend that pops up in that missing "J" slot...

Genifer said...

Something else I just noticed...Lily works in human resources for Penguin Publishing...

Penguin published the editions of "The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories" and some of the other Lovecraft books I have.

robofish said...

She actually wors for PenQuin Publishing. I copied and pasted it in me adress bar and it was a "Q" not a "G". Also ALias and this show are two totaly different things. SO the use os slusho could be totaly different. Because even they are spelt different.

Danny said...

i wonder what the flavor section at slusho is...is it just rubbish? they must have put it for a reason

Ivan said...

Also, all of their movie choices have some monster movie in them, and I think 2 or 3 have Godzilla... interesting.

Ivan said...

Someone commented before about the pictures having writing on them after the attack: the pictures were found, remember? Like the camcorder at the begining of the movie.

Deletia said...

Amanda, I agree about the whale sound. Look up "bloop" on wikipedia, follow the government links for a sound file. It's eerie. There's your mutant whale.

Mike, concerning INFOCOM, (I posted this elsewhere here, but) check out a description of their game, The Lurking Horror. It's openly lovecraft-inspired.

Smackchow, great catch on the w(h)ichcraft! Two comments... 1) "wichcraft" is a fantastic name for a sandwich shop. 2) The misspelling could be an intentional pun, as Jamie identifies herself as Wiccan in her profile.

travis said...

I can't wait to see them drop little foreshadowing about the movies plot. I bet they plan Rob's party on myspace. Anybody look on facebook for the characters?

Deletia said...

crap. back-to-back posts on this thread. oh well. concerning the missing-friends-whose-names-start-with-j-and-s, here's this from Jordan at project cloverfield:

"...most of their profiles list them has having an extra 2 friends that we 'can’t' see, however this is a well-known bug with myspace. When a user deletes his/her account, any person that has friended that account, will show that it’s still 'added' in the actual count, however it will no longer show up as a valid link in their friends list.

"In order for the number to correlate with the actual number of profiles s/he has friended, the user has to edit their friends, and remove their friendship with the deleted profiles."

So, either the puppetmasters overlooked this bug in the MySpace system, or they intentionally left a telltale trace of the deletia (the word, not me).

Deletia said...

Alright. Last post on this thread today, I promise.

Jamie's pictures are posted at a photobucket site under the account name sarahnettleute. If you look up Sarah Nettleute on MySpace, you get a deleted account. Sarah could be the "S" friend with deleted accounts.

Plotwise, I'm not sure if that makes much sense. Especially since Jamie is sharing a photobucket account with her and yet is the only one of the seven who does not show evidence of once being MySpace friends with her.

But there it is. Having now logged 8 hours at work, all of them in an extraordinarily unproductive fashion, I am now going home.

Wichcraft is a real restaurant in NY. It's owned by Tom Colicchio, head judge on the Bravo Network tv show Top Chef. They have kiosk looking shops near Times Square if I remember correctly. I know I passed one when I was up in NYC in February.

The misspelling could be accidental or intentional - hard to tell at this point.

Hi there, new to this!!!

I don't think they will plan Rob's SURPRISE/SECRET party on the MySpace pages.

But I do think that this is just to get to know the characters better, so they don't spend a lot of time explaining them in the movie (obviously, in the movie, they still have to explain them because of the people that won't go to the myspace pages, but we will have more info about why they act how they act or something like that)...

I believe the mutant whale theory is not so crazy, because it could be something that resembles a whale(?), maybe?, but one thing Abrams did say is that he wants "an original monster, and Godzilla is from Japan, and Kong is too friendly"... so why import it from Japan through Slusho???

Slusho.jp Whois information reveals the name Satoshi Kagashima. If you look up that name on Myspace, you get this account:
http://www.myspace.com/ardoisbonnot.

Here are some facts about the site:

-Ardois-bonnot is a Lovecraft character.
-There is a quote at the page from Albert Pike, who is mentioned as the technical contact for the 1-18-08 site. Albert Pike is an historical figure about whom conspiracy theories abound.
-There's an odd map at the page featuring a map of the Southwest with what looks like a tourist's journey inscribed.
-The map features the numbers 4:22 314.
-There is also a series of 24 5-digit numbers listed in the "about me" space.

Anyone want to take a crack at that?

Just a thought...

i found it strange that in the history section of Sluso.jp, they made the point to say that the 'secret ingredient' was found on the ocean floor under conditions of extreme cold and tremendous pressure... i did a little research.

http://www.resa.net/nasa/ocean_methane.htm

apparently there are methane ice deposits that form at the ocean floor under, you guessed it, conditions of extreme cold and tremendous pressure. i guess there is a pretty strange creature called the 'ice worm' that survives on them as well... don't know if it's connected, but i found it interesting.

also... googling "sarahnettleute" comes up with an anagram website first... perhaps if you solve the anagram you unlock the password to the photobucket page??

Leviathon said...

oh yeah, one more thing

in the kudos of the blogs you'll see a Sgt Rodney Young... his myspace page has 0 friends and is very... appropriately themed. maybe he is related?

Rob said...

Never know these days, leviathon.

Maybe he has some small military role. At least there will be some military roles in the movie according to what we can see in the 1-18-08 photos.

Stewart said...

Map also has 88 1:35

Thats 402 in 557

Stewart said...

Ardois-Bonnot. French painter affected by the surfacing of R’lyeh and the mental calls of Cthulhu in 1925. So deep was the affect that he created a painting titled Dream Landscapes which depicted R’lyeh. The painting was hung in a spring salon in Paris in 1926.

LenaDia, one of the friends listed has a video list and there is a Misty on there that has posted the following comment:

Saturday, July 28, 2007 4:01 PM

I was gonna warn you. But nah. I don't like you very much. Have fun 1-18-08

What the hell do you all make of that? And by the way, Misty looks like she could be the Evil Number 9 Girl in the party photo.

Thoughts?

Deletia said...

Those comments in the video section are open to anyone, and the date, July 28, is after the myspace pages went public. In other words, I wouldn't think anything in the video comments was part of the game.

Deletia said...

Stewart-

Thanks for pointing that out. It makes sense now. Sort of. It's mileage-- 314-88=226 miles from an arbitrary point south of the Grand Canyon (more or less where 88 is written on the map) to Gallup, where 314 is written. Given the times, the average rate of travel to cover the 226 miles was 81 mph. (Go grade school math....)

If you extend the route out along the highlighted road to 314 miles, which is the point at which the mileage recording started (or at least was zero), you end up near the mouth of a small unnamed road east of the Grand Canyon that leads off of Rt. 64 (Navahopi Rd.) to the base of a ridge that roughly parallels 64.

Hm. If you assume a constant rate of travel (which doesn't make much sense) the trip started from mile zero at 12:30. Which is at least sort of interesting, since that's what time the event occurred.

Rocknrolleater said...

i know this might sound silly but note the music on some of their profiles look at the videos for the songs(if they have one) the one for "Dashboard" from modest mouse has something dealing with the water and some type of "accident" happens and such(ref. to video) so just an idea...

Rocknrolleater said...

oh yea one of the cast members posted a comment on jamie's myspace pics saying she'd be 8 feet tall...maybe the "monster" is 8 feet tall?

Benney said...

I was just going back to Justin smith's comment about the whole 44 thing lol. On Robs myspace page his new blog mentions 44 as te number of vacation days a worker in Finland gets. Not sure if that means anythign, thought would mention it.

dondatta89 said...

This may be nuttin but it seems like there might be another myspace page for another character
I was on robs page lookin at da comments n there was one from a girl dat seemed like it was a reply comment,i went to her page n he had left her 1 as well
I looked at her pics n she looks like the girl from the trailer with the really big boobs
heres her link
http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=15633644
she has rob n jason as friends

slayer said...

I tried to look at her pics but it said it was set to private.Did it say that it is set to private when you looked at her pics?

dondatta89 said...

Hey srry for takin 4ever to respond im havin truble signin in

wen i 1st went to her page it nvr sed her pics were private she had about 6 or 8 of dem ill try again n post da direct link

dondatta89 said...

Yea i dont think its anything
i checked again n its probably jus a coincidence dat she has a huge chest n resembles dat girl

slayer said...

Probly cause i sent a friend requst and she accepted

dondatta89 said...

alrity den...try talkin to her see if she knows anything...how was she abe to send rob comments n get them replied to

slayer said...

Alright but i think it was the other way around

slayer said...

I think Rob has two new pics because i dont remember them being there before

slayer said...

I think Beth also has a new pic and it looks like the same place as Rob's new pics

slayer said...

Sorry for so many post in a row but no one else is writting anything. That girl isnt responding so maybe she is a character.

dondatta89 said...

Srry i havent been on(2 busy wit MHF2)
I havent gone to the pages ina while so i wudnt remember and i seriously hope dat dat girl is a character becuz i think she'd be a lil ticked to no we were talkin bout her
U think its a possibility dat its a fake account made jus to give the impression that dere pages r real?

slayer said...

Maybe but i was looking at her comments and someone named Hector left a comment and she responded

dondatta89 said...

ok...mayb she is real...but den how is she able to communicate wit rob?

slayer said...

These guys are good. Rob was the how sent the comment so maybe they are just picking people at random to make it seem more realistic

slayer said...

She replied and said that they only talked a couple times but she wasnt the one who started talking to him.

dondatta89 said...

yea i kno dats y it seems all weird
all im sayin is dat this movie better be effin amazin

slayer said...

yeah unless the pages are people that some how found out about the characters and are just fans

******** said...

...all part of the viral marketing...

chris said...

ok, im not new to this site but just decided to start participating.

Someone mentoined this site,
http://slushozoom.com/index.htm
click on the pic of the statue of liberty and you get a website about cheese.
Another takes you to a imdb website of a jappanese monster movie. Another to a bazooka wikipedia site. Kinda crazy things.

Any comments on these?

Dennis said...

Chris, that site is a fake site, created by a "fan".

slayer said...

Somebody need to do something about all these fake sites that fans are makeing.

MizCheef_07 said...

As anyone noticed how odd the cups are arranged at the bottom of the Slusho page?

teleporter said...

hey guys first post here, long time reader. I think there might be some clue with robs t shirt in his myspace pictures, hes wearing the same one and even has a comment about it, all I could figure out is that it says ADIOS and has some skulls on it...

well it might help

I really hope the movie has some biblical stuff

Jason said...

Sarah Nettleutte

TASTE THE UNREAL

Heh. Maybe.

DollarSpree said...

here's a note worth noting...if u look at lily's myspace page it says she works for penguin publishing in h.r. when u call penguin group (only peguin publisher out there)and press 1 to dial by name, enter ford(her last name)it connects to someone with the last name dorfman (or something like that so unless peguin publishing is something else (maybe some hint) it's a dead end otherwise

What would be the motivation for the monster to raid nyc? Food? Food for the kids? Revenge? Insanity? Looking at the monstrous02.jpg high res poster, which is way better than any of the other images here so far, The SOL and the building damage. I am estimating the digits are elongated and the hand alone could be 35-50 feet wide. The head of the SOL is about 260 feet from the ground and she is 35 feet wide at center. I also see a red airborne matrix throughout and blood on Lady Liberty. Could this be a rapidly spreading airborne parasitic virus that is from its blood? Does it turn everyone turn into monster food? Could it be a rapidly mutating viral parasite courtesy of our lost "little whale" and or some help from alien genetic modification while lost at sea? The explosion could be meant to heat things up so she could lay her offspring?"


Kinda like the viral markerting that's going on right now LOL.

WeAreLions said...

It's very funny that one of the comments on JJ's "Slusho" blog (http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=201291045&blogID=288864865)show a friend that "can't wait for Lost, TV has been so boring lately."

Abrams, quite the businessman.

Dennis said...

WeAreLions,

Those comments are from fans, they are not "in-game"

Zach said...

on everyone of their pages it says the last time they have been on was 10/17/07. There has got to be something with them all joining on the same day, and all of them stop checking it on the same day.

Jim said...

I noticed that HUD logged into his Myspace today. Unfortunately, I'm coming into this a bit late in the game, but I didn't see anything timestamped from today.

None of the other folks logged in yet, though.

Has anyone read that blog of Hudsons from September 23rd? He's been getting some comments on it, the most recent being in the past week- and that character behemoth is pretty crazy looking.
