Alright, I took the night off and I'm bright eyed and ready to go. Let's recap.
On http://burrowinthefray.com/ we are confronted with two sets of magic words.
1. EYE THE OF MOONS
*We (and by we I mean other people than me who can actually see things) have gotten the 4 words from the videos. They are EYE, THE, OF and MOONS in that order.
*We have a field laebelled *****TICK-TOCK***** that has been sitting there forever asking for magic words. We have all assumed up til now the video words are the key to unlocking that, but it wasn't as simple as we all hoped.
Random tin-foil hat theories.
EYE THE OF MOONS and TICK-TOCK are both clues to the same puzzle. Perhaps there's a clock somewhere with moons, or eyes, or both? KingRabbit's puzzles have almost all focused on art til now. A very fancy artistic clock with some history might be a good start to look for.
Also, all his puzzles til now have focused on art in New York, I'm starting to look there.
2. THOSE WHO DID NOT DIE
We have 4 non-epitaphs for people on the site.
Illustrator Helen Wilde did not die in 1966
Messman Valentine Baker did not die in 1942
Seamstress Lily Wilson did not die in 1901
Brandon Lachmann did not die in 1986
After unlocking the 4th video we got a new request for magic words:
The oldest, but only a child, _______ ________ did not die in ____
Important to note Those blank spaces actually have individual underscores. The first is 7 characters long, the second name is 8 characters long and the blank at the end is 4 characters long (like a year).
Random theories sure to be proven false:
*Somehow the 4 people we know combine into a single person either through wordplay, historical intersection or something else.
*The first puzzle, EYE THE OF MOONS has some detail in it's solution that ties to a person. This would be a very nice parallel to the previous step where each solution revealed an epitaph. I'm liking this theory the most right now, which means puzzle 1 must be solved before puzzle 2. But that's just a theory so feel free to ignore it.
And that's my reservoir of organization for the day. On with the chaos!!!!
