Yeah but consider this: when it started in July it will have been 16 weeks ago in the grand scheme of things. 16.

Ok, now I got even more excited for this  :metal :metal :metal :metal :metal :metal :metal :metal :metal

Not a clue, but:

I found out that Freddy's profile picture here is taken from a gif of a sock puppet:



Here's a link to the gif: https://dribbble.com/shots/2395656-Sock-Puppet-Motion-Track-WIP

The name of the guy who created it? Fred.

A day later, he created a gif of a pirate sock puppet. :yarr



Even if it's all a coincidence, I find it very funny!

This confirms that Freddy is secretly James LaBrie :biggrin:

I'm really surprised nobody thought to delve into the sock puppet rabbit hole earlier.  ;)

I can confirm that the sock puppet iconography was chosen deliberately.

Max Kuehnau

I thought so (because everything about the whole hunt is deliberate)

pg1067

Can someone please post the link to the Google doc again?

Yeah, thanks Max! Now, I wonder, will we ever know who Fred Jacobi is?

Is "Jacobi" a reference to the famous Mathematician who created the Jacobi symbol? I'm pretty sure it is.

Probably, I think.  But in the end, he may just be a sock puppet.

that's what I thought too, but we don't know yet (or will we ever?) Maybe Kim (noxon) knows, since he gave the "green light" as it were by saying that the hunt is legit (at the very beginning of the thread, remember)

I think Noxon and Bosk1 both know who FJ actually is.

So we can assume Freddy Jacobi and Pupp Socket may also be ciphers or clues themselves.

Well, I was almost close. Going to have to put my thinking cap back on.

I would absolutely love it if he was just a sock puppet. Or better, it's the owner of the sock puppet : Garfield, the cat! :metal

Now you're thinking.

Which means that usually, I don't?!? Thank you VERY MUCH, Bosk1!

Edit : if it's Garfield, I swoon! :biggrin:

I do.
I'm sure you do. Should have included you in my post above. Sorry about that.

bosk1

No worries.  I'm not bothered.  I was just confirming that I know/what who he is.  Or, perhaps more accurately, I know his/its identity.

Of course.  :biggrin:

I knew it! Even if not confirmed, I know it was a cat, hence the "hers" or she. Yeah, I know , Garfield is a he but you know what I mean. My world is complete!!! Yeaaah!!! :yarr (you see what I did there, hm?)

bosk1

I have read it three times now, and I will have no idea what you did there.  :lol  But I still find it amusing nonetheless. 

robwebster

Might be stating the obvious here - but a sock puppet is another name for an alt account on a message board, i.e. when someone pretends to be someone else, like Bosk totally hasn't within the last five posts.

Figured that was why Freddy was a sock puppet, didn't figure that it was deliberate / significant!  Basically might suggest it's a forum member?

bosk1

I will just go on record as saying that Freddy is not me, if that is what you were insinuating might be the case. 

Beyond that, I will not say anything more about who or what Freddy is.  That will be made known eventually, I assume.

Freddy Jacobi

Name's Freddy - short for Frederica. Or Frederic. Depending on the mood of the day.

So....the name of the new album is....

Androgynous Puppet!!!

that was part of the code needed to solve puzzle 7 (and that was 7 weeks ago)

Oh wow! Hi Frederic/a! :) Thanks for doing all of this - I've enjoyed it very much.
