hey everyone, first post. here's some interesting geogaddi easter eggs that aren't yet listed on fredd-e's website.
title: Geo gad di
Geo: geometry geography geology geodesy geoid ect...
"words beginning with the prefix "geo-" should not be considered as only referring to the earth . . ."
"Insure that for Geoid it is stated that it usually corresponds to mean sea level but it is not the same."
gad: God And Devil
Gog and Magog
this can be spelled with geogaddi if you subtract the d and add an m
some thoughts on the missing m: e+d+d =m; or d+i=m; also boc have said 'm' is their favorite letter.
"Appearing in both Genesis and Revelation, Gog and Magog have long been associated with beginnings and endings.
Passing into late classical and medieval literature and history from biblical tradition, the two were sometimes a single being (Gogmagog), sometimes separate (Gog and Magog), sometimes ethnic groups (the races of Gog and Magog), and sometimes lands. Amorphous terms, the names were at one time or another attached to the Scythians, Goths, Saracens, Jews, and the gigantic sons of Albina, among others. For many medieval writers, Gog and Magog functioned as typological metaphors, names that could be appropriated to whatever was alien, threatening, or actively hostile in a manner that paralleled biblical usage."
70 words or letters (a, b, b, c)
69 words, letters, and numbers if you subtract magic window
radar is the only palindromic word
If you subtract the d, you can spell “was I alive?” (analogous to the "you might be dead" in dawn chorus)
with the only 4 title words that form dictionary words backwards as well as forwards: I, saw, a, and devil
also interesting is the placement of the track "i saw drones" because
“(I saw) alpha and omega” followed by “I saw (drones) the devil” (is in the details)
There is a bible verse in Exodus 33 where god says to moses "no man can see my face and live."
towards the end of the track "the beach at redpoint" it sounds uncannily like hell has opened up
to the album's protagonist.
in the next track opening the mouth it sounds almost definately that the kid is saying ‘awesome’ which word that has very specific biblical usages specifically referring to the presence of god.
then in alpha and omega ("i am the alpha and the omega") if you listen to the bongos there is a segment where they go eerily off-key and i always get the impression that this is the moment that the protagonist loses his mind with the remainder of the album documenting this insanity and his eventual death.
thus "no man can see my face and live" but here boc subverts that statement by having HELL open up to reveal God, the alpha and omega. thus “(I saw) alpha and omega” followed by “I saw (drones) the devil”
equating the two (also done with "a GOD with HOOVES")
Music is math:
it sounds like the vocodered singing voice is saying ". . . don’t go (over)"
in any case something is being said and given the church-like singing it probably was a phrase spoken by a religious figure of some sort that they took and 1969ed it.
also, there are many ominous, ritualistic booms or gongs very low in the mix towards the end.
You could feel the sky:
I can't for the life of me hear anything approximating "take my hand"
rather, it distincly sounds like the words after "two, too, to" actually change a few times, like (but not necessarily in this order)
which if you add all together, intimates a sacrificial offering (or trial) by knife and fire (which fits perfectly with the intimations of "opening the mouth")
Sounds extremely similar forwards or backwards. almost like a transition to the perfect reversability of the silence of magic window
