Clue #134 - Speaker Special
























Speaker at Inside the Experience, just posted the pic above (he had the image flipped). The filename is "ironman_1". Could this be a message from Rachel to "Iron Man" Malik? The hex converted to Ascii is: "rewsna ym wonk ydaerla uoy neht era uoy kniht i ohw tuoba gniklat eruoy fi nadjd ot ni llac uoy draeh ti si thgif eht ni uoy gnipeek si ecneicsnoc --m" If you read this backwords it says: "M--Conscience is keeping you in the fight is it? Heard you call in to DJ Dan. If you're talking about who I think you are then you already know my answer."

Thanks to Gerry, Twinkle, Dennis, and PeaceandNamaste for emailing us about this cool new clue!

Repost from last thread:
We need that last bit for the "m -- c". Otherwise it starts with "onscience."

BTW, isn't it funny that TPTB (or whoever named the pic file on ITE, Speaker?) named it "ironman_1." Isn't that a fan given nickname?

Does anyone have any ideas what this clue is actually, well, for? It looks like it's just pointing us in the direction of DJ Dan's next podcast, but we didn't need another clue to tell us that! It must be something more.. After all, the image is ironman_1.jpg, so will we get ironman_2, ironman_3?

RE Apollo Bars: Thanks to everyone who e-mailed me about having Apollo Bars to share! MissMegs has recovered from the initial deluge of e-mails and the random act of mischief her dog performed on her computer. She's taking e-mails at missmegs31@gmail.com with the appropriate information below.

IF you are going to SHARE chocolate you've already GOT, she needs the following info in your email:

Your name
Your "handle" (the screen name you want me to use on here)
Your location
How many bars you have/are sharing
**Whether you want your bar(s) returned to you or not**

IF you are REQUESTING that a bar be sent to you, she needs the following info in your email:

Your name
Your "handle"
Your location
**Whether you are willing to pay for your shipping**
**Whether you will be eating/keeping the chocolate or whether you are willing to send it on down the line after you get your photo**

Thanks again!

Maybe he is not saying "help"...maybe he is saying "Helgus Antonious"

FYSB: Wouldn't it be appropo for him to say, "but someone is going to hell for this?" LOL! Or maybe at least purgatory.

Blogger PeaceAndNamaste said...

I know this is off topic but.. I was just looking at the ROT site and realised that;

'Dr. Vincent "Wally" Bole' has the same name as the dog from LOST.

If you remove 'Vincent' from 'Dr Vincent "Wally Bole' you have an anagram of 'Yellow Lab'.

The dog, Vincent, in LOST is a yellow labrador.

"Wally" could be short for Walt.

The first password for the hidden section of the ROT site was 'porter'.

Brain Porter adopted Walt and later surrended custody to Michael.

It's all the little things like those that I love about LOST and TLE. :)

dennis,
how could be possibly have found them sooner? They weren't released sooner and there was absolutely no relationship between the time it took us to find them (only seconds at times) and the release of the next one. They were released on a fixed schedule...

Well I must say that this latest development blows one little theory that I had... that Rachel had contacted Malik and a meeting had been arranged between Alvar and Rachel... I had then thought that Alvar had funded the Apollo bar switcheroo and the payoff at WIA would be footage of Alvar (maybe the meeting with Rachel). Maybe instead it was Hackett that aided the Apollo bar remodel and distribution, and Rachel hasn't been able to contact Malik until now as distributing 70 video fragments was still at the top of her to-do list.

So if the WIA payoff was devised before Rachel sent this message to Malik, thus before any meeting with Alvar, what will the WIA payoff be? Will we get to see how Rachel got out of Sri Lanka? She's had Malik come to her aid, Hugh was kinda a good guy too, and we know Peter Thompson wasn't in full support of Mittelwerk, maybe it was PT that helped Rachel this time. Maybe we find out that Sri Lanka didn't go ahead?

meh... it's Sunday morning, I shouldn't be thinking like this.

Good questions, Lavenda! Rachel escaping isn't the burning question for me. It's Rachel escaping *with* the camera's video that surprises me.

Maybe Rachel's been cooped up in a factory all this time while her helpers have been forwarding the Mittlwork Apollo bars to her? Then she carefully unwraps each one, replaces it with a whereisalvar bar before sending it on it's way to the original distributors. That'd explain why she's been so incommunicado.

Not sure if I'm joking or not.

the fact that she is onl y responding now, like a month later is just stupid. She obvioiusly doesn't really care to get help or consider the fact that by waiting so long malik has already gotten caught or killed himself. This is stupid.,

~~~~~~SPOILER for season 2 finale~~~~~~











If she delayed the release of the Sri lanka video, condemming that 30% of those villagers... then Rachel is no better than Michael taking off with Walt and leaving behind his "friends"

9/09/2006 05:30:00 PM  
Blogger maven said...

Noblelawyer: Totally agree that this is stupid. Not life-like at all. While Rachel took her sweet time to get this video pieces out, 30% of the Sri Lanka Island population was dying. Appearing at ComicCon after she found out about Sri Lanka wasn't very realistic either. Now making us wait until the 23rd (maybe) is more aggravation.

Happy Saturday everyone - nice to see some activity on the weekend... although I have to admit I am not one for Weekend gaming as I have too many kids activities normally. Just stopping in for a quick post and update on the Apollo event in Lexington!

Apollo - Glad to have had the opportunity to meet TLCM and Dennis at the event, nice to meet others who's family looked at them as nutty too!!!

As far as the event goes, Dennis pretty much summed it all up well. My family and I stayed till the very end... Men In Trees is an okay show, but Ugly Betty was the better of the two premiers. We talked to a few of the TV workers at the end that were collecting surveys.. They thought we were nutty for driving the 1 1/2 hours just for the Apollo Bars. They seemed very nice. By the end of the Men In Trees premier the ABC guy with the extra Apollo bars was gone - disappeared into the night and took the chocolate with him.. how rude. Nothing LOST occurred, so Dennis, no you did not miss anything.

Wow.. think this is my longest post ever.

Hoping to be able to get my Apollo pics up on WIA by tomorrow or monday at the latest..

Well off and running again.. probably see everyone on Monday!!

(Update)
Since things have slowed down around here:

1) this is WAAAY off topic but

Did we ever end up finding all the pieces to the Gary Troup interview?

2) For all of you that have the Lost Season 2 DVD:

I'm sure some of you previously saw the UK Lost promo (if not, its on the S2 DVD). When I first saw it a long time ago, I thought nothing of it other than the fact that it was weird and didn't really have much to do with the show. But, watching it again (while going through the DVD special features) something caught my ear: the phrase "one of us is a cop."

I forget exactly when this promo came out...but wasn't it a promo for Lost season 1? And, am I mistaken, or isn't Anna-Lucia the only cop on the show? Does this mean we've been handed something about one of our core characters that we didn't know yet?

Peace and Namaste,

It took me a while to find it, but I went into the archives on the lost experience clues, and it looks like that was clue #34--I watched the You Tube video and saw it had been posted May 17, so I went back and looked at clues from May. The wording is an anagram for "The Mouthpiece" which I think ended up being a password somewhere. The archives of this site are great--it reminds me how many clues I have already forgotten and what a fun game it has been!

Ok, so here's the dialogue we have up to now between Malek and Rachel:

"I know where he is, I can set it up."
(Malek to Rachel, via DJ Dan podcast and Bad Twin clue)

" (...) If you're talking about who I think you are then you already know my answer." (Rachel to Malek).

Our obvious takes here are:

"He" is Alvar Hanso;

Rachel's "answer" must be YES (after all, she's been asking to everyone 'Where is Alvar?')

alternative possibility: Rachel's answer is "NO", as she is not ready yet to meet her FATHER in person...

Also, "he" may be someone else other than Alvar, although I can't thing of any other character who could step into these "he" shoes.

btw, Rachel seem to be very slow in getting the messages Malek sends her, as it took her more than a month to decipher the code Malek called into Dj Dan's podcast. Perhaps she should visit TLEC site more often!

fgradel, well spotted. There's a problem though.. If Rachel visits TLEC she'll be acknowledging that the ARG is just a game. This will either result in her imploding or the universe exploding.. i'm not sure which, never really paid attention in theoretical-psuedo-physics :)

I like the fact that the man playing Alvar Hanso in the Sri Lanka video is actually a well known actor, Ian Patrick Williams, who appeared in Alias. That might tell us that he's going to appear in the actual show, instead of only in thhe ARG.

One more weird thing I found.. lol

Remember somebody posting the link to a fraternaty that Alvar Hanso was supposedly in? The name of the frat was Lambda Iota Epsilon. The site is http://lambdaiotaepsilon.com/

After browsing while trying to figure out why somebody would make that, I decided to find out if it was in-game after all.. After a minute or two of searching I found this..

http://www.etext.org/Fiction/startrek.lost-episode

It looks like a piece of fan-fiction entitled Star Trek: The (intentionally) Lost Episode.

Not really very interesting, but firstly, it's called The Lost Episode, and secondly, there is a planet in the story named "Alpha Lambda Iota Epsilon Nu".

This is fun... hehe

I think that site is fake, being the word "lost" brings you to the old hanso site, but by way of the tons of numbers/letters than "noshutdown" w/e and if it was real I would think they would have a better way of getting there. Then, the word "Dharma" brings you to http://thedharmainitiative.org/ which is definately fake by looking at the source. Or at least it looks NOTHING like the in-game sites do.

hey there!

I just finished watching todays rerun of this weeks episode of LOST on Channel 4 in the UK. At the end we were told, as usual, to go to http://channel4.com/lost/ for more information but instead of being told to just go there for more info on the show, we were told to go there for more information about "the book that everyone is talking about", which I assume is Bad Twin, since the episode was the one that had Sawyer reading the manuscript.

On the Channel4 LOST page there's a link to the amazon.com listing, here;

http://amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1905026307

There are a few links on that page that, when clicked, attempt to open some kind of video or something.. I'm having problems viewing the videos, and I don't know if i'm looking in the right place or not... But it seems to me like we have the beginning of a clue...

Hey Guys, I must restrain my excitment while I write this, but am hoping the sound gurus in here can help out.

Folks that know about sound and manipulating sound, have a good ear for identifing an unknown sound and matching it with a known sound, are the talents I hope, would help.

I am going way out on a limb here, with a hunch, so if this leads to nowhere, please be kind and don't roast me, ok? :)

The you tube "wave" video I posted a link to yesterday, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUqhga2ul-Q) ,
I have been examining and playing around with. Specifically the audio.

I know, seems the least important, compared to the video.

But I have taken the original DVD, ripped the video into an avi format, to make playing with easier. I then took the avi file and ripped or removed just the audio, and proceeded to speed, slow, change pitch and etc, to see what I could hear.

This first mp3 is of just the audio at normal speed, sounds like radio/TVstatic
http://www.lostdude.com/lostaudio/LO20NNT7240_2006-09-09A128kbps.mp3

Now, same audio as above, but slowed to 80 % of the original
http://www.lostdude.com/lostaudio/LO20NNT7240_2006-09-09ASLOWED8032kbps.mp3

I will not speculate as to what this sounds like to me, so as not to bias your opinion, but please listen and give feedback to what this sounds like to you trained ear. Each file is less then 500 KB

Administrators: If you consider this is way off topic, I will remove at your request, without offense :)

hey thinbluemime,

Yeah I see what you mean. I don't hear anything familiar in the slowed down version, but it sounds like there could be there. I'm not very good at identifying sounds, to be honest.. I've listened to all of 'The Whispers' over and over and still haven't once found anything that sounds even vaguely recognisable, let alot a human voice.. I'd like to know what you think the sound is though.. :)

peaceandnamaste, I really want to say, but let's wait for more folks to listen, and voice their opinion. I will say though, I too, have never been very good at hearing the "whispers", and in this case that is not what I hear.

thinbluemime - Sounds like water sound, either lapping against the hull from inside a boat, or audio recorded underwater. The little blips and beeps sound a little like dolphin- or whale-call.

Not really sure if it means anything, or if it's just coincidental. Is that what you heard?

YES!!

Maybe others can confirm this after a listen, but I am hearing water, bubbles, and either whale or dolphin sounds OR both.

I wanted to wait a little to confirm what I heard, but like a little kid, it's hard to wait :)

Yes, the 3rd season , the underwater tank from the old TV show Hawii 5-0 (?) is rumored to be employed heavily.

Giddy here to, for several reasons:

1) The one legged Aussie woman who told Hurley about Lenny and her Husband hearing the "numbers". Some folks may have fogotten, but the radio waves they were monitoring were.....LONG waves, as opposed to short-wave. LONG wave is used a lot underwater, when short waves are interrupted.
2)To Many to mention now...but the killer, and the implications are mind boggling.......the sounds in question were found at the end (?) of the chain of the LOST Character connections!!! I will not say more, but season 3 will be amazing!!

I also thought this staticky image from the "Lost Connections" on the Season 2 DVD was interesting, but honestly I don't think that there's anything in the sound. Almost anything slowed down 80% will sound funky ; ). I do have a speculation about what this screen is supposed to mean, but it requires some Spoiler Space:

.
.

.
.

.

Connections leading from Jack, Jack's Dad, and Claire all go to this same sort of staticky screen with the shadowy figure. I think that this is supposed to indicate that these 3 characters are all connected. In "Two for the Road" last season (http://www.lostpedia.com/wiki/Two_for_the_Road), Jack's dad visits this woman demanding to see his daughter. The speculation is that the daughter is Claire, making her Jack's half-sister, which would make them all connected.

Thin blue,

Listening to the unfiltered audio, whatever is there is on a loop. It sounds a lot like somebody is saying "Jesus" followed by all kinds of static. As for slowing it down.. While a good idea from my perspective their are no filters on it in the first place. So slowing it down will alter the sound but that is not how it originally sounded. It think it's just static?!?!?!?

only one anagram for "de Zylva"
ADZ LEVY

so must be a proper name, or a surname?

On a standard keyboard 'z' is immediately adjacent to to the right of the 'SHIFT' key, so everywhere there's a 'z' in the code, you are supposed to capitalize the following character. Since 'r' is immediately to the right of 't', the first letters 'zt' become 'capital-r' or "R".

This is true for all the characters: s = a, d = s, f = d, etc etc.

And yes, I thought that 'de Zylva' was kinda weird when I came to it, but I double-checked and that has to be it. It's the part that appears as 'fr zxu;bs'

there is no listing for "de Zylva" on Lostpedia

sounds like malek's got a few questions of his own. i suspect (hope?) rachel is going to have to release the end of that sri lanka video.

"de Zylva" may be the guy that raised his hand and questioned Mittlewerks ethics and killing innocents

and this:

a family line for it... idk this stuff is weird, I'm still placing bets on a code name, like gidgetgirl

It seems like he's implying that de Zylva assisted in Rachel's escape and has since gone missing...

mityh: Yeah, I found that bird photographer. Strange that he has a book of birds of Sri Lanka of all places!

That other link is interesting, too. That family is from Sri Lanka!

and by the way, I got confused there toward the end so the bit where I have (shift?) should just be a question mark.. Apparently 'z'='?'

just reread message"R -- I think it's fair to say, whatever conscience I have was built on faulty equipment"

not man, not machine, just sumpin in between? LOL

yay Dante! I figured it out myself because I flipped the image in Photoshop and don't have never used a character recognition program so decided it would be faster to type it out myself, and in doing so noticed that the "words" were like whoever typed the message had their fingers one place to the right. And you got that wierd shift near the end too, sweet, I am not going insane :D Thinking about it now I think it is to signify a question mark (since the key on the right of ? is the "shift").

That'll teach me for taking Monday easy! Now let's see if I can type my word verification without shifting my fingers one to the left or right...

Those Phoenix Days

found a link to a "de zilva"
http://www.bookfinder.com/dir/i/Those_Phoenix_Days/9559853406/

double check the code translation, may be missing one or two letters

A lot of these de Zylvas/Silvas are linked to Sri Lanka. Strange.

I found the name "de Zylva" interesting... "de Silva" is a common Sri Lankan name, but I have never heard "de Zylva".

But YAY for action! Nice to see Malik doesn't drag his heals in replying to a message

about 'de Zylva' -- you can double-check the translation yourself and verify that's what it is. :)

about the line spacing in the coded message, whenever there's an apostrophe (like in "it's" in the first line) this creates a line break because the key immediately to the right of the apostrophe is RETURN.

Maybe de Zylva was someone who helped Rachel get on the Helgus Antonious in Sri Lanka and helped her escape. He was someone that Malik referred Rachel to in Sri Lanka.
