Slusho 'Sword' Update

There is a mysterious update to the Slusho website. A strange symbol, which looks like a sword and a quote balloon, is appearing on the main page, and on the contest page. I checked the site, and don't see any other changes, or anything else hidden in the flash files - so I don't know what to make of it. Let the wild speculation begin...

* Thanks to Luis S for pointing this out!

  2. ahhh that's actually kind of exciting

    does the sword represent the slaying of the monster? hmmm?

  3. I'd say it looks more like a 9, in accordance to the 9 cups on the main site perhaps? Might just be a new logo they're playing with

  4. I really hope this is a legitimate update to the story. If so, much happiness abounds.

  5. hmmm... just speculation okay... look at the "balloon" ... doesn't it look like a happy monster face and the sword could be code that they killed it... just speculation...

  7. maybe its just a little change to hint to the public that the ARG is continuing now after the release of the film.

    maybe they noticed that a lot of us had come to the conclusion that the ARG was dead and they added a small change to show us that they are still updating things.

    im not sure how it could be a clue though

  12. Guys.... the swirly thing... the bracelet from the Manga...

    This might have something to do with the strange cult from the Manga!

  13. WHOH! so awesome lets hope the ARG goes on. something i noticed. if you look through all the different sections, the contest section is the only other place you see the symbol. very strange...

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm agreeing with "me" up there. The swirly '9' looks like a monster's head- the cloverfield monsters head!

  17. The cloud looks like the "bead" that connects Gamera to his child companion/guide in the latest Gamera flicks.

  18. Boy there IS a lot of speculation here. But u know what?...There's something with the different colors. Maybe the indicate something. Maybe when it was blue they THOUGHT they killed the monster but mistaken when it was black....speculation,speculation...

    ReplyDelete
  19. I looks like the monster's head is smiling and laughing. Dunno about the sword.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Maybe this means the site will shut down soon?

  21. The symbol looks like a "mitima" with a sword behind it. Look up "mitima" in wikipedia, I think you'll be intrigued.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I don't know that if on Friday the sword was blue. but when I looked on Saturday, the sword was black.

    has anybody considered that maybe Dennise changed the color of the sword because if he posted the picture of the black sword it wouldn't be seen because of the black background on this website...

    common sense

    ReplyDelete
  23. On my first post I said to check out "mitima" on wikipedia. Well I spelled it wrong. It's "mitama". They also feature prominently in "Blue Seed", an excellent anime that's riddled with Japanese folklore....and monsters.

  24. 6 six upside down as in "you can't drink just 6"?

    BTW, was it originally blueish or it was modified to fit with the black background?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Bubba, Hector, etc...

    The sword was originally blue when I made the post, but it changed to black the next day. However, if you look inside the flash file, the image is still blue, and they added some code to turn it black. Here is the code:

    function showHomeSword()
    {
    swordLogo.alphaTo(100, 7.000000E-001, "easeOutCirc");
    } // End of the function

    function hideHomeSword()
    {
    swordLogo.alphaTo(0, 3.000000E-001, "easeOutCirc");
    } // End of the function

    function showContestSword()
    {
    contestSwordLogo.alphaTo(100, 7.000000E-001, "easeOutCirc");
    } // End of the function

    function hideContestSword()
    {
    contestSwordLogo.alphaTo(0, 3.000000E-001, "easeOutCirc");
    } // End of the function

  28. That same symbol is on the back of Teddy's missing poster on 1-18-08.com, except it's black there...

    ReplyDelete
  29. I think ( out there guess) its a cyclone or hurricane
    and it represents the monster and i believe the sword represents a rebellion (if you will ( but only if you will)) and its kind of a way to publicly anounce that.. idk maybe like money you pay for slusho may go to help some how or way you know like vh1 save the music... that is all

    ReplyDelete
  30. oh and it also looks like the top of the slusho cup upside down

    ReplyDelete
  31. The symbol also appears in the upper right hand corner of the Tagruato web site.

  32. thanks for clearing that up Dennis

  33. Notice that the sword symbol also appear at this blog.OMG what the hell i going on?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think dollhead meant magatama,
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magatama
    which then leads me to think that the sword has something to do with Kusanagi the legendary sword of Japan that was used in mythical times to slay a giant beast.
    Or maybe i'm reading too much into it.

  36. The symbol at the top of this page is a mirror image of the actual image on 1-18-08. It's neither a 9 nor a 6.

    ReplyDelete
  37. The symbol is actualy from jamieandteddy.com another virial source for cloverfield along with TIDOWave.com in which the first comment is about Teddy Hanssen from JamieandTeddy.com and if u check the 1-18-08.com hes the first picture, its a missing poster. if u flip his picture the symbol is there
