Less of a comeback, more of a replay.
If Robert doesn't master it, I'm not buying it.
I think Jeff was just disappointed that I figured it out so fast. He was probably planning on keeping the mystery going for years.
Not like they play anything past Skeletal Lamping at concerts anyway.
That makes one of us.
Momentarily stirred by a solar wind and soon to settle, yeah, yeah, I know. But learn to take a compliment!
Finally, the point I was waiting for. You win, sir.
I often think true things, yes.
My logic is that a thread having to do with a project by a band should be in THAT band's forum. If this were just about Jeff, sure, the NMH forum would be the best fit. But this is about an OTC...
Jeff Mangum is not a musical project, he is a person—a person who is contributing to the musical project known as Olivia Tremor Control.
Any other questions?
Why would drawings by Jeff for an OTC album be in the NMH forum? Does every thread about things Bill Doss did for OTC or the Apples belong in the Sunshine Fix forum? The forums are based on musical...
I think 2017 might be the year I finally make the jump to 4K.
Seriously! Something must be done! Where are the mods when you need them? They've turned a blind eye to the needs of this community for far too long. Cipher thread in the wrong forum? People trying...
That's why I keep suggesting we move this thread to the OTC forum. We're getting NMH fans' hopes up for no reason.
Out-of-state students enrolled in a four-year program at University of Michigan.
That was a riddle, right?
Yeah, that one is a little too much. I was thinking, track runtimes? But that's a lot of really short tracks and no longer ones. So I'm thinking this is all a hoax now. Or just a really good way to...
True, I forgot some of the rules.
That's exactly what people said about if he misspelled "Magnum" and he sure showed everyone about that.
I posted all the 3rd eye artwork in this thread when I was proving to everyone that this is an OTC release, and it convinced every last person, iirc.
For fuck's sake, Jeff.
I touched on this.Thanks.
It's funny because order of operations is just some arbitrary order someone decided on that has no bearing on the real world. Like if you had an orchard and needed to send 50 apples to 5 schools, you...
Number of posts it will take before anyone makes any significant progress toward figuring out a single piece of this "cipher."
Makes their jobs too demanding, I guess? They would prefer if bands released albums every 3–7 years, like their favorite, LCD Soundsystem. Bonus points if the new album sounds just like the last...
It's just 1982 backwards...
There are a lot of new numbers and stuff on this one:
SMCH (Stage Magicicada Cassini Huygens)
If you flip that vertically, it's:
ZWCH (Zanzithophone Will Cullen Hart)
Harnk, do you ever have correct opinions? You need to have your subjectivity adjusted.
When did I say it wasn't onions?
If this isn't rubby bulbs, I don't know what is.
Yes, I think Jeff's recent drawings are probably involved, but it's real hard to get optimistic about release dates with E6. I don't mind waiting at all, but it's best to push the anticipation to the...
That should say "Shea Stadium BK," the actual name of the venue.
Shea Stadium is in Queens.
That's very optimistic of you.
Admin can change usernames. seandavidson, can you help?
To be fair, the ABC song is actually really good. I like that it's a reprise of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star."
I used to hate it, and now I think it's okay.
Ah, that good old trick where you replace "I" with "People" to make it sound like your opinions are popular and warranted.
Can you believe what a big baby this guy is? He's been crying about his low inauguration turnout for days. He won't shut up about it or stop lying about it. His press secretary had a meltdown...
Good deal. But did it originally come with a non-generic sleeve?
That's understandable. I still don't like Innocence Reaches really. Probably the only reason I like Aureate Gloom so much is because I've always been a big fan of Television and some of the other...
Yeah I feel like track 3 is a lot better than it used to be. I remembered the title but not the music, really.
"Island Life" is the same way, pretty much. Yeah, it's melodically boring, but the drone of it imparts its own feel. Different but not entirely bad, to me.
There is some deep, deep bass that I'm...
Other thread is broken, so I'm trying to make a new one.
I like this EP a lot. First three songs, actually, sound Aureate Gloomish to me, maybe with some small touches of Innocence Reaches. I will...
Yeah, odd. I wonder if it has to do with threads that were edited or something.
Is your post on www.e6townhall.com the only source of this rumor?
Wow, what. Been a while, kirk! This is a nice surprise.
Cool. That's soon.
That's cool. I'm only a few shy of that.
Now we know what the "M.C." in the ciphers is referring to.
Expect a big site update going live soon.
Yeah, I was also thinking they could be track counts. Seems like the right number for an OTC album. Can't imagine NMH pulling 34 tracks out of thin air.
Over The Countersign, y'all.
Mods, please move this thread to the Olivia Tremor Control forum.
New OTC album confirmed, again. One of the clues straight-up says "3rd double [album]." WHICH BAND IS IT THAT ALREADY HAS TWO DOUBLE ALBUMS? HMM.
I don't know what happened to those other threads, but they were about legit listings of NMH records for sale on eBay. I found them. Some were a bit overpriced compared to Discogs selling points, but...
Thank you! The sideburns were smaller at first, and I remember taking some criticism for augmenting them.
Dossa Dossa Bill, y'all.
I feel ya, OHB. Seeing Bill perform so many times as part of Apples, OTC, and Holiday Surprise and getting to talk to him a couple of times were some of the most meaningful concert-going experiences...
You're older than me? Jesus. What kind of world are we living in?
This arrived, and it's awesome. It's so much material—took a long time just to flip through and give everything a cursory glance. The quality of the materials is top-notch.
I also noticed some...
No. Mine shipped from Athens and is currently in Memphis, en route to New York.
Don't obsess over tracking info. Maybe they had to send it to Puerto Rico to get on a plane to go wherever you are.
It'll be good to put some scrutiny on the electronic voting machines, which are easily hackable, because in the counties that used electronic voting machines, Clinton got far fewer votes than polling...
Let's appreciate Donald Trump by doing some recounts. http://www.cnn.com/2016/11/26/politics/clinton-campaign-recount/
I contributed to the successful campaign to get a Wisconsin recount. Just...
We just need to prevent spambots from signing up. I guess the captcha doesn't work anymore. Time to update it.
Yeah and he recently collaborated with W. Cullen Hart on some art. It wouldn't be weird at all.
Honestly if Jeff's fans are disappointed about an OTC release, they can fuck right off. What, is he...
It's Jeff's art—that's why it's on sale where Jeff's art is sold. Not a good dismissal of the OTC theory.
"Double double" only appears on some—so what? A lot of the things we're talking about only...
But really, NMH didn't have any new material at all on their tour, which lasted years. And suddenly a double album shows up? What would be on it? Nah. Plus Julian is touring, Jeremy just released a...
Lepy great points as always, but I think you missed one important part...
See the drawings below, at the bottom of each. The first shows "SMCH" and the second "Stage MagiCicada Cassini Huygens"....
Maybe that's how they felt, but they weren't actually having any rights taken away from them. Reproductive rights and services, gay marriage, freedom to immigrate/not get deported because of your...
Sorry but I'm going to shoot your dismissal to shit, and here's why: Dusk at Cubist Castle was also a double album. The 3rd album is going to be a quadruple album, hence why "double double" is...
Just found out Kevin's name on Facebook is Tils Platform.
I mean he's already 70 and doesn't look like the kind of person who makes it far into their 70s. He has the money going for him, and therefore probably good health coverage, but he does eat tons of...
I do, but they were threatening to kill him because he's black. This is a little different.
Oh, so the people who actually want the government to do things don't have ideas, and the people who do nothing but prevent the government from doing those things DO have ideas?
Trump's team is saying the Muslim registry is a good idea because we put Japanese people in concentration...
Brain just accidentally posted her wi-fi password.
lol yeah, I'm going to listen to InfoWars for 10 minutes, good one.
Idiot couldn't even get the plurality of the votes. What a weak crybaby loser. Sad!
Actual conservatives are realizing finally that their ideas have always been garbage and the only reason they've...
That has always seemed to be the only purpose of conservatives. No other platforms or ideas.
Harnk really is funny... most of the time.
Slavoj Zizek is a little bit of a moron if he thinks Hillary is just pretending to be progressive, like she just suddenly appeared one day as a stooge for the banks and doesn't have a long career...
Wow, I'm calling the cops.
So no, you just refuted your own idea.
Agreed, he did used to be nice until Cameron brainwashed him.
Yeah, I thought it might be a "B" too, but the top right part is way too pointy. He is getting old, though, so maybe it was a jitter.
Based on that Wheel of Fortune–style before-and-after word...
17 years is how long it takes for cicadas to emerge. I spent about 3 minutes looking for some associations between the numbers, the year, and Chris Knox, and nothing really adds up.
Yeah, i remember the candle tag. It happened a couple of times at least.
I hear gold is a very good investment. Buy her a pile of gold for her second birthday.
Apparently it's "a game about giving" and has something to do with spreading fire by candles. Didn't Julian invent a game...
I've seen some people's have things on the back. Mine is blank.
Wow I bet your 1-year-old is going to have a lot of fun with a framed poster. Let's be real, you got it for yourself.
She's right, Halloween only happens once every few years.
I posted mine on instagram with the hashtag "#thebookciphersings"
I don't see how that's much different from just saying "double LP" and "double album," which are written on some of these things. All that's missing is the "soon," but can't that be assumed, in the...
Yeah, we probably have to solve some kind of puzzle using the posters before they'll release the album. Add it to the pile of E6 recordings we'll never hear.
