11/3 -> 12/28 (55 days)


So what you are saying is that if we modify an '84 Pontiac and get it up to 55 mph on the Trans Canada Highway, we will be teleported to a stretch of the M9 just outside of Hexagon Sun?

Maybe this discussion will have to get to 550 pages before a new release is mentioned.

In which case, keep going as I could do with a new release.

Interestingly Mike S has also retweeted this from his personal twitter account. It's his only tweet.

Opothecary is on it! Predicted that 9/9 something will happen right? It's 12/9 now and they tweeted. So, his math has to be corrected a bit hmm?

A friendly stranger appears and the pattern still holds. Is something going to happen in this "annexe" soon? Where'd that retweet go Peacock Tail? Maybe he deleted it when it was noted here.

You can see in the screenshot in my last post there's just the one tweet on the account, linking back to the official BoC twitter.

Also, LOL at the Berselius callout in the comments of that tweet. I wish people were like "wow, 9 + 12 = 21 still fits in with what's going on" rather than always trying to find a way to cut other people down. Once 9/9 passed, nothing between now and 11/3 really matters - but it is nice to NOT be contradicted with this new post, along with some further evidence that the one section of the video playlist continues to be relevant as well. Nothing but smiles over here

Time to take a deep dive on the new information, one interesting thing to note is that this is the first time one of these tweets has been shared directly from inside of a playlist. This is NOT the usual official playlist and it has some other interesting stuff going on. Amo Bishop Roden is video "17" from this list.

It's also nice to see that this post effectively ends any ambiguity about something happening on October 11th or November 10th for the theoretical 21 slot. Remember that tracks 10 and 11 from TH (Palace Posy and Split Your Infinities) were placed suspiciously at the top of the list above tracks 2 and 17 at their Soundcloud account.

So going back to Amo Bishop Roden, video 17, that's the year, but more importantly for our purposes, let's also think of the last track from TH, Semena Mertvykh, it has a Russian title.

Keeping in mind that the last number missing from the sequence is 14, let's stroll over to the official video playlist, we note that video 14 is Palace Posy (sitting at the top of their Soundcloud account as well, as mentioned earlier) and was posted by "Юрий Гагарин" back in 2014. This video is Russian as hell.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZhGfzu ... 914A7EF3A2

The point of all that is that we need to take a trip to Russia to properly see what we've been given today. Shift your time zone to UTC +3 and we get something very interesting when we look at BoC's tweet vs Mike's tweet - a perfect 24 hour sum between the two, with my previous prediction for the release date hanging out over on Mike's side:

Lastly, Amo Bishop Roden is the only BoC song title besides Hey Saturday Sun that can be split into a 11/3 character pairing, ie:

Amo/Bishop Roden

Hey/Saturday Sun
Hey Saturday/Sun

You may recall that when the 3/11/12 tweet was deleted, this temporarily caused their tweet/like sum to drop to 78, landing at video 78 on the playlist (Hey Saturday Sun, now a video marked private)


So long story short:

11/3 -> 12/28

Good catch, you're probably right. The lighting seems similar.

Personally I'm still excited of the prospect of a new website for http://www.boardsofcanada.com that MDG mentioned, I guess time will tell. I was bummed out when they got rid of it and just linked it to their Bleep page, kinda just renders their art as mere product which takes the magic out of it imo.

I hope they create the new site in a clandestine way, maybe it already exists and is floating out there in the vastness of internet space, just waiting for someone to fall into its nostalgic black hole, much like the cosecha transmisiones site used to be.

I think the next album's far off. Hope I'm wrong.

I clicked on the link just *hoping* that by some magic I would be taken to a new page...

However, here's a funny little change.

I've been needing to have my job reevaluated for a while now, and delay after delay, new CIO, the whole nine yards...well finally it's done and it came with a job title change...

My official job title is now "Information Technology Services Business Operations Coordinator."

Yeah that's abbreviated as "ITSBOC" hahaha! I'm pretty happy with at least that portion of the change :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
