THE "CHATBOX"

For the moment I'd like to ask a very straightforward question that I neglected to mention in my previous post on this Land of Oz story.

The images below are the primary ones that have been used at all the official memorial EVENTS.

Image

Image

Do these "faces" even look like the same "person"?

I honestly don't think so. I suppose the average person just sees them lumped together, and assumes they are the same person. It's like the brain automatically reconciles the differences based on a conclusion driven response. Or the trauma of the story blinds them to the visual discrepancies. It's an interesting thought.

The first image (above) is (oddly enough) the primary one used to depict "her". The next one is the head used on pretty much every other image used to show she was a real person.

Besides the painted on eyebrows (top image), and the shape of the eyes and chin, what else can be distinguished?

It's a bit mind boggling to me how these images get tossed at the public, and not a single person bothers to ask even the most basic of questions.

I'd love to pay a visit to "Vern Landavazo" and ask some questions. But this simple act could easily lead to my sudden lack of career and livelihood. So yes, I'm too chicken (I prefer to call it WISE though) to risk it just to satisfy my own curiosity about this story.

I think this kind of thing is yet another psyop - don't believe your own eyes. This is happening with Hillary right now. Is it a double, CGI, face mask, etc - but most people just accept what is put before them without question, even though there is a nagging thought in the back of their minds.

This one caught my attention:

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-10-03/iraq-propaganda-videos

This limited hangout venture springs from the need of some damage repair operation caused by the people like us ( on the other hand these movie clips are so bad I can't believe this is not intentional ) both to the government and mainstream media which are of course two branches of the same tree.

The whole thing was supposedly snowdened by something called "The Bureau of Investigative Journalism". TBOI is "...Based at City University London, the Bureau works in collaboration with other groups to get its investigations published and distributed. Since its foundation the Bureau has worked with BBC File On Four, BBC Panorama, BBC Newsnight, Channel 4 Dispatches, Channel 4 News, al Jazeera English, the Independent, the Financial Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Sunday Times, Le Monde, Mediapart, the Guardian, the Observer and the Daily Mirror..."
source: https://www.thebureauinvestigates.com

So now they are faking these things not to mindfuck and further enslave us but for the noble purpose of " tracking terrorist viewing locations". Cunning strategy.

Looks like they are planning to clear for themselves a legal way for jailing/fining people with hobbies like ours in the future (not too distant most probably).

300 people, $540 million(!) and such shitty effects :)

@daddie_o

I clicked on the MM (Man or Myth) link from the front page quite by accident and this caught my eye
Sorry! I did not mean to accuse you or brianv of being cointelpro shills.
Oh really, did you??

What exactly IS a "cointelpro shill"?

No, I said I did not accuse either of you. If I was accusing anybody it was Allan Wisecracker or whatever his name is, who came crashing in here like an 800 lb gorilla.

By shill I basically mean some kind of intelligence agent posting on an internet forum. Their posts can have many purposes, as can be read in the JTRIG handbook and I'm sure you're familiar with. COINTELPRO, I assume you're aware, is/was an FBI program that stands for Counter Intelligence Program. A COINTELPRO shill was just a shorthand I was using to describe a shill whose aim is to divide some group or movement. I take this from the tactics the FBI COINTELPRO developed that were intended to heighten tension and hostility between various factions of groups or movements they were trying to disrupt. I realize that COINTELPRO was much broader than this, so actually "COINTELPRO shill" is kind of redundant, but what I had in mind is basically a shill whose intention is to divide a group/movement against itself (as opposed to say, a shill whose intention is to discredit the group/movement or disrupt it in other ways).

Actually, our knowledge of the very existence of this tactic (and shills in general) is enough to divide us against each other as we try to discern who is a shill and who is not. I suspect that is part of what Snowden's disclosures were all about: just the awareness of what is possible is enough to change people's behavior in ways that benefit TPTB. Keep us pointing fingers at each other. The problem is that it's not just a paranoid fantasy, so we do need to be wary of each other. It's a double bind.

Brian, I'm curious: you said you clicked on the MM link from the front page quite by accident. Oh really, did you?? What does your front page look like? Because mine doesn't show a link to the MM thread. It shows a link to the Question of Fakery forum. And from there there is a link to the MM thread, but clicking on that takes me to the 1st page of the thread, not the 18th page where my comment is. You could arrive at the 18th page directly, I suppose, if you had 'quite by accident' first pressed on the little square with the number 18 on it, but then that is starting to seem much less like an accident. What's the problem with just saying you were reading the thread. Don't want to admit that you're MM curious? Or am I missing something?

No, I wouldn't know the first thing about that. I saw it bandied about on "letstroll" 10 years ago. Sounds like bullshit to me!

My front page looks like this index.php

And where do you go if you click the latest post icon beside the poster's name in the right column?

And NO for the last time I could not give a rats about MM or Snowden for that matter.

You think COINTELPRO is bullshit? Or shills?

Ah! I knew I must be missing something. I have only ever clicked on people's names and gone to their profile page. I don't think I ever realized or noticed those little tiny boxes next to people's names. They're so...tiny!

Why cannot I reply to Simon Shack via e-mail?

I sent an e-mail to his address (as a private individual and to which he has responded) and it was returned to me.as my ISP was apparently blacklisted, or something.

What is going on here?

Hey, dear Sharpstuff - no idea, this hasn't happened before (to my knowledge) ! I just sent you an e-mail to your usual e-mail address, let me know if you've received it. (Simon)

Dear Simon,

I've no idea either.

The reply from mailer daemon says:

Note: I have removed your e-mail address

********************************************
In the event, I hope you do not mind me posting my request, which can be deleted as it is not part of this forum.

I wrote:

My Dear Simon,

Firstly, I trust you are well.

I will try to be brief but that is impossible for me as my seventy-two-year-old mind is still working 'full on', as they say.

I would like your advice on something that is not relevant to September Clues, or the forum. It relates to your expertise in the recording and construction of music albums.

If you are not interested, or do not have the time to reply, that is fine; just let me know.

********************************************

My music history is complicated but I have always been interested and love music not the drivel peddled as music, nowadays which I do not listen to or have or want access. Music is 'in the family' so to speak. As are also my many writings.

I have always loved the piano. Anything with the black and white notes of a piano always attracts my interest, even toy pianos.

In the early 1980's a great friend of mine purchased a Technics synthesiser. He happily lent it to me and I was instantly engaged in creating music from it.

I was encouraged by this experience to purchase my own synthesiser, which was a Yamaha PS55, if I remember correctly. I composed a lot of material on that machine and used it for a school assembly when I was teaching in a Special School at Romford, in the U.K.

I then purchased a Yamaha DX7 (original). I had also purchased an Atatri 1040ST with midi interface and Steinberg Pro24, spring reverb unit) to replace my Dragon 32.

I also later purchased a Tascam Porta One (and various bits and pieces (Yamaha FB01, Boss Reverb, Roland TR505)).

I now have a Yamaha Motif 7 and Casio CT655 connected to a computer but with other bits not installed at the present.

***************************************************
O.K. so all that over, I have at present:

A fully working (and Tascam professionally refurbished) Porta One.

A working PC running Windows XP (it was better than Win98SE for some reasons but better than anything that ever followed).

What I want to do, dear Simon, is to be able to take twenty years of 4-track tapes,(recorded on the Tascam) and mix them down to 2-track (.wav) on my computer.

I know I have Audacity (useful for some things) and I also have Goldwave (which I have been using for twenty years) but I cannot mix my 4-track tapes using my computer!

Nothing I try will make Audacity record my tapes from the Tascam!

Have you any suggestions?

The above relate to technical questions on a private matter.

A reply of any sort would be generous.

Well be.

My very best regards,
*************************************************

Peter, sorry to interrupt but...

I'm assuming the Tascam has got Audio Out. How are you currently connected/transferring to PC?

Providing your XP machine has got a USB connection (or Firewire) you could buy say a cheap 4 Channel Audio Interface - Focusrite (New Gen) if they are out yet, or a really expensive one. [st]http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/Scarlet18i8G2[/st]

Sorry, you are in the UK - https://www.thomann.de/gb/focusrite_sca ... nd_gen.htm

And a "DAW", there are dozens. Get REAPER, it's free to use for 60 days, then you can buy a licence if you wish ( they don't call the cops if you don't ) and it runs forever, and it's excellent software, regular updates. http://www.reaper.fm/download.php

You could also do it with Audacity, but REAPER is more flexible.

Ditto on the AtariST by the way, I had Cubase v1.1 on mine ;-)

Dear Peter,

I'd suggest you download to your pc, for instance, something like good ol' Wave Lab 5.0 - (free versions can be found online) which works wonderfully on WindowsXP.

WaveLab allows you to import multiple tracks - and then mix them down at leisure - with all sorts of cool plug ins / equalizers / reverbs / compressors / etc...

As Brianv rightly pointed out, you will need a 4-channel audio interface - in order to import any given 4-track recording from your Tascam Porta One to Wave Lab all at once. However - a cheaper way would be to import your 4-track recordings to Wave Lab in two steps - i.e. by importing them two-by-two (routing them separately on L & R stereo channels) - and then aligning your two sets of L/R stereo tracks manually within Wave Lab.

Hope that helps - let me know ! :)

Well, as you're on the subject - I would highly recommend Reaper. Not only is it very cheap, it's well made, and you can evaluate it with full functionality before you decide to buy a licence, so zero cost to give it a go. I use it when I'm travelling on business - although when I get home I move anything I've been making over to Pro Tools in my tiny studio.

Also, Reaper is pretty light on CPU, so you can run it quite nicely on some quite old systems. If you give it a go and want any help, PM me and I'll be glad to try to help.

Wow!

Many, many thanks for all your replies! I will certainly look into it.

I seem to have forgotten a lot of stuff; my works go back over twenty years.

I will get back to you.

Thanks again.

Cool.

One last thing, whichever Interface and software you settle on, make sure for the transfer that you use good quality leads/cables, don't go using curly old guitar leads! Use the shortest and best quality you can afford. ...Well two things actually, you can has your old DX7 back again inside most DAWs. I have a midi keyboard hooked up to my machine and I call up DEXED as a plugin occasionally.
