It's amazing what you can pick up on a street corner

Here I am again. Feeling a bit brighter this morning:

   

So last night, a bunch of you picked up tickets from a man in a leather jacket somewhere in Liverpool. Someone called Sean grabbed some footage on his camera phone - you can see it here:

You don't really get a clear look at the guy but I think he was trying not to be recognisable. There's some handy webcam footage up here too:

Sounds like a similar thing will be happening tonight - either in Southport or Bolton. Getting conflicting reports on that. Either way, there's sure to be another challenge up on Cyrus' website sometime today, so keep an eye on it. That URL again: http://www.silburngriggsmining.com/projectfia/

In the meantime, I think we're getting somewhere with that odd looking Radio 1 timetable (see my previous post). A few of you have noticed some letters are underlined for no obvious reason - got to be something there, I reckon. Keep going.

Why keep up this pretense? I'll grant you it looks like some people are still swallowing it, but they'll be a bit cheesed off when it's just revealed to be long drawn-out competiton.

Just put up an email address or phone line to call and you can pick ticket winners at random instead of making it into a soap opera?

Ms. Minx, read - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alternate_reality_game

What if the underlined letters dont mean anything? By all means continue following this path, but I'm now starting to look at other possibilities.

1) The code in the URL, db2902f7-c011-419f looks like hexadecimal, I haven't been able to do anything with it. (ASCII translation, basic maths), but the format looks like a date.
2) The majority of the colour coding only happens on the last page, it appears to be the most edited from 'normal'.

So far, I know Blue = an outside broadcast. Listening to Edith Bowman's show today, it appears that she's in a Brewery in Bolton, where the ticket pickup just happens to be tonight. Is our contact part of her team? Will the signal go out in one of her shows?

Ms. Minx, you are a misery guts. (P.s I really enjoyed going up to Liverpool yesterday to get my tickets, so, meh!)

BIG WEEKEND - FESTIVAL SAVED!


In April and May 2007, I claimed there was a cover-up at the BBC to do with the words 'Frozen Indigo Angel'. It was all part of an Alternate Reality Game run by Radio 1 and the guys behind Perplex City - in fact, I encountered a character or two from Perplex City myself.

During the game, we gave away tickets to the Big Weekend, musical instruments belonging to major bands, and introduced thousands of people to a whole new world. All for free.

If you'd like to re-live the adventure, check out my first video, and then watch the rest.
