Idea: a chain of popup stores. (I don't know what it even means, but it seems like everything is now either a chain or a popup store.)
Mystery solved (sorta): the trailer to 1-18-08 (Cloverfield) is up.
Fakest. Statue. Of. Liberty. Head. EVER.

ditto the prior commenter on the Statute of Liberty head. Is this really gonna be a lame Godzilla flick? At least lots of Gen 0'ers may die in the film.

The budget is "only" $30 millions, it's really poor compared to War of the Worlds (100 millions more)... It's a good teaser tho.

It would be great if it really was Voltron, but for 30 million, I really doubt it.

Supposedly he told Ain't It Cool News that it's about a giant worm that falls to Earth.
Viral Marketing works I guess.

i'm guessing its a remake of a Ray Harryhausen film ... It Came From Beneath the Sea. Or a giant worm falls to earth. Or a Godzilla flick. Or ... um ... something else. But definitely a lame CG version of the Statue of Liberty's head.

Next post is about the sites.
For the pictures and 1-18-08 guesses of mine click here - http://www.invalidcookie.com/1-18-08.htm
You can also check out my message board on there, thats http://invalidcookie.com/yabb
sorry for the mess i've been to busy trying to figure this out to fix up my design.
Last but not least is the Slusho site.
Notice that there are a bunch of cups on the bottom.
1 is filled on one side, 3 on the other.
13 a very unlucky number...
also notice how many times they say 6. Also freaky girl lets call her from the pictures on my last post also wore a 6.
I've taken the sixth sentence from the history page and i've gotten this.
"But Tragedy Struck for many, He is very big. unlike anything on earth."

A lot of the numbers add up to 9 - the number of the devil.

Cloverfield is an ARG started by the producer of LOST- J.J. Abrams and Paramount Pictures. The untitled trailer before the movie Transformers, holds all the clues you need to start the game.
I played The LOST expierience for FIVE months over the LOST hiatus last year. It was very fun and involving. This one, however, is very difficult!
When you are involved in the game (and know what is REALLY going on) go to ethanhaas.org . You will find a series of links at the bottom of your screen. These are ALL related to the game!!!!
One of the links is THE HANSO FOUNDATION! I clicked on the link and saw a letter from Hanso, explaining his situation and his newly found freedom.
There seems to be some text on the bottom of the letter. I've never seen it before! It's hard to read. Has Hanso been infiltrated by Cloverfield? Or the other way around?
J.J. Abrams loves a good hunt and a good laugh! He has SET-UP and DENIED websites (ethanhaaswasright.com) (ethanhaaswaswrong.com) to keep one step ahead of the intellegent and relentless findings of us, the players.
He's gotta keep this thing going until January, remember?
Dedicated gamers and fans, Don't believe the hype! Go to those websites and play the game!
Abrams has, in the past, SET-UP and DENIED several websites throughout the LOST expierience that were actually involved.
No more wild goose chases! I've learned my lesson.
I know the ethanhaaswasright.com are for Cloverfield, because each time you finish a piece of the puzzle, you get a video clip from a person who is hiding underground seeking the truth.
(Sounds like The LOST Expiereince to me....)
Also, the name Ethan strikes me as odd. Ethan Rom, Ethan Haas? Puzzles and video clips? How can anyone tell me that those "fake" websites are not part of J.J.'s wonderous creation!!!! He's laughing at us, people!
He states in an interview that there are websites out there that haven't even been found, yet! UNTIL I CAME ALONG!!!!!
Another interesting side note:
Cloverfield premiers in January. LOST starts again in February.
The names Ethan along with Hanso, are both tied to Cloverfield and LOST.
Abrams is keeping us busy for yet, another Summer, until both premiere.
Isn't it cool to be a part of something that only select people know about?
If you've already been playing...
F.Y.I: August 1, 2007 will be big!
F.Y.I: 1+18+08 = 27 2+7=9 ... The number on "Yellow Girl" in the pic of Rob drinking!
Need websites? Need answers? I've got them! Hit me back!

If you go to wellmiss.com there is a link to 1-18-08. There it shows a link to amazon.con for a Canon mini cam, probably something to do with movie because the preview was shot with a handy cam. The website is weird and is just a bunch of links to different things.

this is in the source of ethanhaaswasright
"..war came, no longer from the elemental nor from the star's rain of fire. The world was again remade, and the glow was as the coming of the sun upon the Earth. The children of the gods were again too few, scattered and divided and among them walked the ancients and those whose thoughts were not as to the towers and the marvels, but to the End and the destruction of the Earth and to the fires from which nothing could escape."

we can crack this if he keeps feeding us info, but we will never know the truth it'll all be speculation. One person had an interesting point about things adding up to 9, as well as the number 6 showing up a lot. signs of the anti Christ or the devil. (6 6 6) and 9 the number of the devil. if you go to apples website they now have the trailer on there is great quality. the sound doesn't Quite sound like a beast when you first hear the initial sound from inside the building.
someone else posted this
"But Tragedy Struck for many, He is very big. unlike anything on earth."
the devil? Armageddon, the end of the world as we know it?
Then in the trailer the person says its huge, which makes a lot of people think its a beast. Who knows, but i can tell you that J.J Abrams is a genius the way he is marketing this movie. very few movies are done this way and when someone comes along and does it, its great all around. keep up the good work everyone
