So some /mu/tants were trying to start a new meme genre where they sample short weird Youtube videos with no views, and dug up this
when he started getting views from the thread, the guy suddenly uploaded a new video asking for help:
digging up the "eratas or Errata system" mentioned in the video, we found this:
/mu/ has a thread up but hasn't done much investigating, mostly people are just trying to promote their meme genre.
Not really that interesting, but if you search "errata" and "workplace" you get a bunch of articles regarding depression in the workplace.
Just reminded me of the 'glum' story from the first link.
Linguist fag here. I don't know much about any of this system or tech shit, but I do know that "Erratas" is most likely a misspelling of the Latin word "errata" (plural form of erratum), which can mean something like a mistake made by an author or creator
I'm not sure if it can have any context in computer coding or anything to do with a "system" (does he mean operating system?)
It sounds like its just the name of the program, unless the word has any significance within the program itself, which would be impossible to tell unless someone had a copy
this might be /x/ just playing into someones delusions again but since no good ARGs have come up since 2012, I will be monitoring
Same Anon here, I just finished typing out a transcript of the video as best I could, and I have to say, things are getting weird. A lot of what he says matches up perfectly with the little that's mentioned about Erratas in the archived /x/ threads.
If anyone is able to figure out what the the text said at parts where I wasn't able to, that'd be great.
Notes about the transcript: Anything in square brackets are my own notes; " [??] " means I couldn't read multiple words, or that I couldn't tell if it was multiple words or not and I couldn't read them; " [?] " means I couldn't read what I'm pretty sure is just one word; [?] attatched to the end of a word means I'm not completely sure that that's what that word says; [??] attatched to other letters means I could figure out part of the word but part of I couldn't figure out.
[start of video]
I've been fairly reluctant to really ask anyone for help since the nature of [??] like pre[??] classic paranoid nutjob ramblings -
algorithms controlling things behind the scenes, weird stuff in that vein.
But I would never waste anyone's time with stuff like that. In the past couple of years I've asked for help from friends in programming and business circles.
but over time, friendships fade, people move, people stop talking to you. You know the drill.
As such, I'm very grateful for the help people are giving and I'll try and answer as many questions as I can here.

Q: "So with this video, are you essentially trying to see if this system called "Erratas" or "Eratas" will attempt to take down the video because it's some system/algorithm that takes down videos that... I don't know, include the term "Eratas"/"Erratas" in them? Which is why you used asterisks for letters in the word in the description, to see if the system could detect text on videos?"
A: Thanks for writing, Cork. Yes. I don't know much about programming or computer systems, so I'm not too savvy about how to trick them. All I really know about Erratas is that it's used by dozens of companies.
("recent", as in, within the last 5 or 6 years)
they seem to use it as a copyright-enforcement tool which works as an excellent [?] if you want to take down other things as well.
But it has its limitations, and I'm fairly sure that my "test video" helped ferret those out. Maybe.
The original Jurassic Park trilogy is excellent, by the way, I highly recommend it.
The second film is my favorite, in spite of its flaws.
Frank Horrigan writes "what is the erratas system? any documentation?"
A: Thanks [??]ing, Frank. "Erratas"[?] is something I [?(I'm not sure if there's a word here or not)] crossed paths with over the years, and in[??]scope[?] disturb[??(this word MIGHT be "disturbance," or it might be "disturbs me")] ...
The fact that it went after my mom in her twilight years is either evidence of its enormous and uncaring[?] reach in other words, a coincidence, or it means it's
specifically still coming after me after all these years, and to be frank, both options freak me out equally.
3M and Unilever were early adopters, which shows the versatility of the system.
Too much faith is put into computers in general, and WAY too much faith was put in Erratas. Lots of people lost their jobs.
And Aaron4420 [referring to a YouTuber who posted on one of his videos], it's easy to talk shit from behind a computer screen but takes a real man to back it up so suck my dick through a straw
Too much red pill this is shattering my view on life, This is just too much too swallow. I don't want to go down this rabbit hole.
OH FUCK. You guys are not going to believe this. So in the /mu/ archives, there's one mention of Erratas, where an anon asked why in the description for this one YouTube video there was the phrase "Erratas or bust" (https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/mu/thread/S61968898#p61969871 ).
That YouTube video is this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Zly8MhTOJw&feature=youtu.be
Check the uploader name: Tod Ellsworth.
What's that an anagram for?
"The Lost World." The second Jurassic Park film.
Shit just got real.
Okay, this is creeping me out. This album has been huge in /mu/ sharethreads for a while now. What the fuck is going on?
>What do now?
Well, the "Deep Internet" /mu/ thread going on right now seems to be making more progress on solving this than this thread is right now, it was someone on that thread who made the realization of the anagram. One anon recently made a discovery you could check out, though it might not mean anything. >>>/mu/62074474 . (I hope I linked that post correctly, I don't usually link posts from other boards)
To add to that, like the anon in the /mu/ thread mentions in a subsequent post, it might not mean anything other than what "errata" actually means in the English language, i.e. corrections to a published work. It looks like this is just a bunch of emails people sent mentioning mistakes in the Lost World movie. Kind of disappointing, since I'm pretty sure there's no connection with this "Erratas" conspiracy we're talking about.
Alright, I'll try... Seems like there's some copyright-detection program called "Erratas" that is widely used by companies such as Unilever, 3M, and even YouTube (so probably Google in general then), but for some reason is being kept a secret by these companies, and it's been taking down this guy's late mother's Jurassic Park tribute videos (though he's unsure whether perhaps it's an intentional YouTube harassment campaign against him and his mom, which I personally doubt).
The ChronosForLife guys' mother was obsessed with the Jurassic Park franchise. In a video he uploaded today answering some questions in the YouTube comments, he specifically goes on a tangent to mention that the second Jurassic Park film is his favourite. In the /mu/ archives, there's one mention of Erratas, from an anon asking why there's the phrase "Erratas or bust" in a YouTube video of an EP that was shared in the thread. That YouTube video was uploaded by Tod Ellsworth—an anagram for "The Lost World," the second Jurassic Park film.
We need to figure out why he thinks it was this Erratas system, and how he knew about it. He clearly doesn't have any programming experience and hasn't said whether he's even aware of 4chan, let alone /mu/.
i just wanted to make meme music
i never asked for any of this shit
Yeah. I wish he was a little more straight-forward in his videos, less cryptic and also with easier-to-read text. Or if he just communicated via comments or private messaging (his account isn't enabled to receive private messages). But I guess he's unlikely to be too straight-forward with this when he thinks there might be some conspiracy against him, especially because of his mom supposedly having uncovered some secret within the original Jurassic Park trilogy (which is one of the things about this that I seriously doubt, but hey, who knows).
i saw it too, i dont know morse but i tried a crack shot at first couple of beeps and i got ...-.....-.. which is what i thought i heard first, then i tried again and thought i heard -...-.....-.. an extra dash in front. i said im not good at this so DO NOT take any of what i just said as anything with solid ground, i only did this by ear and i dont even have any programs. i could quite possibly be mishearing it for all i know
Anyone here want to make a Twitter that we can follow? This is getting noodly fast and it could be a good place to put new (relevant) info and TL;DRs as they happen. I'm too lazy to handle the responsibility myself, though.
I for one won't be making a Twitter account, but if you do want to follow this after this thread 404s, you can always check the Deep Internet generals on /mu/, where we'll always be open to discussing the ChronosForLife issue. That is assuming they keep happening and don't die out.
ah fuck man, thanks for the support but this is my first time at something like this, i dont know where the spaces might be but I did narrow down what the first letter MIGHT be. assuming there is a front dash then the possibilities are V,S,I. assuming there is not a front dash then the possibilities are B,D,N, assuming its B, a few of the next possible letters could be B or D. im not qualified to do this, desu, someone with an application that can look at the sound of the video as a whole and isolate certain parts if better off
IT'S THE ERRATERA!!
IT'S GOT LOOSE!!!
It's worth a shot. Apparently KFC Murder Chicks (creepy name...) have some hard-to-get-ahold-of albums outside the label, too, according to /mu/. There's nothing on their "Golden Age Of Gross Mystery" EP that suggests a connection to Erratas or Jurassic Park or ChronosForLife or anything, that I can see anyway.
Although the track title "PSNEAKYSYS" = "pretty sneaky system" = Erratas? Probably a stretch but it's too early to rule anything out.
But also keep in mind that the majority of posts on those threads have to do with the new microgenre "Deep Internet," but there are some that deal with the Chronos issue.
Something about this just creeps me out. His video stood out to me in the original /mu/ thread, it wasn't like the others.
If it is an ARG, that's some dedication for such a very small audience.
>If it is an ARG, that's some dedication for such a very small audience.
Yeah, I'll say. It seems unlikely to me, though, that this is all a ruse, since there's so many factors he wouldn't have been able to control. Like someone finding out about the anagram or people asking questions on his videos that prompted him to make the video answering those questions. Or even just the fact that his video was actually taken notice of by a number of anons in the /mu/ Deep Internet thread. He also would have had to have been the one who posted the original Deep Internet OP, the one who made the Tod Ellsworth account, possibly even the one who made all the posts mentioning "Erratas" that are in the archives, etc. Just seems way too unlikely.
>Or even just the fact that his video was actually taken notice of by a number of anons in the /mu/ Deep Internet thread. He also would have had to have been the one who posted the original Deep Internet OP
For me this is the 100% proof that this *can't* be an ARG or a ruse, since /mu/ is notoriously anti-viral marketing and can sniff that shit out in a heartbeat more quickly than /x/ ever could. They've been burned by lots of crappy ARGs before so they know the signs. Plus, the Deep Internet thread was our rabbithole into the whole thing, and if that thread failed and no one had replied to it, the whole plan would've failed and been for nothing.
Chronos is the personification of Time in pre-Socratic philosophy and later literature.
>time for life
When you Google "chronosforlife," first hit is Kohlberg investments Chronos Life Group; "formed through the acquisition and combination of JP Morgan’s life settlements assets and Life Equity, a leading originator and servicer of life settlements, creating a fully-integrated business that offers a turnkey solution for institutions and high net worth individuals interested in investing in life settlements."
I don't know, that's all I got.
Spanish fag here, I can confirm "errata" or "erratas" (in plural) is a misspell you would find in a book or something printed, but as they said this has probably nothing to do with what we're talking about.
Sorry but I completely fail to see what's going on or why this is important.
What is this all about?
A secret program that monitors searches and provides info on employees?
Why is this spooky? seems pretty normal to me.
A guy makes weird videos saying YouTube is somehow controlling him? Just get off the internet.
Also, why is >>17281078 so rare? The uploaders name clearly is an anagram to the second Jurassic Park movie, so there's clearly a connection, howerver, I fail to see how that is spooky or a "coincidence". Most probably he's the same guy.
Can someone explain to me how this is not a half-assed attempt at creating a "mystery"? To me it's just one guy that wants the attention
Well, it's actually a bunch of songs. Five songs, I think. And they're pretty loud, so maybe that's it? There doesn't seem to be anything overtly scary about the music itself.
You have to understand that the original video was found on petittube with 0 views. For this entire scheme to work, the person orchestrating everything would have needed for his specific video to be found on pettittube AND posted on /mu/ the day that it was. And from there, he would've had to get /mu/ to try and create this whole "Deep Internet" music genre, which, again, relies entirely on luck. What if no one replied?
Also, you don't find anything fucked up about the idea of a bunch of companies all firing their employees for some completely secret, nebulous reason?
How the hell can you browse /x/ and get annoyed at the idea of /x/-related content, anyway?
So, uh, I just had one of those creepy "Icarus has found you" moments.
I'm sitting here at twelve in the afternoon with a mild hangover, just got back on my computer for like a half-hour, and I had this open in a tab last night to read in the morning or something. I started reading, got down to the anagram bit, then went back up and read the archive links in the OP.
I'm reading it, and, no shit, after I finish the first post, I start reading the second and my display just turns itself off. Just powers down, blackout. It then turned itself back on about three seconds later, and gave me another five of blackout before it came back to exactly what was there before. Computer didn't make a noise or skip a beat. Running virus scans, nothing.
It's probably nothing, but that was super scary fucking timing, and that has never happened before. Ever. My best guess is that there was a blackout two days ago and maybe it was some residual damage or charge left after a power surge or something, but trying to recall it, I don't think the TV was even on at the time. Maybe my HDMI or power cable fucked up for a second, I don't know, it was just odd that it actually fully powered down with no input at that exact moment.
Anyone ever experienced anything like this?
Also, let's say I worked at a theme park that might be connected to the people who own that franchise, right? Let's say that their shift managing software, which is occasionally operated as an autonomous scheduling system, and has many functions, is called Kronos. There have been radio ads for it on NPR in the area, so I know it's sort of popular or widely used. Just an odd little coincidental link that someone accused of employing this system also uses that, considering what the dude's handle is.
Anyone watched the second movie lately? That was an odd drop in the answers video. I feel like that was a suggestion. Are there any parts with computers or something? Anyone have an idea? This is odd for a schizo to arrange.
>theme park that might be connected to the people who own that franchise, right
Any hints, bro?
I think no one else here besides you and me is really picking up what CFL was putting down so I'll just come out and say it: I think "Erratas" is a name for something that actually performs many, many interconnected functions under different names. Employee scheduling, payroll, automated hiring...it's not a stretch at all to think the same system could be used to detect copyrighted audio/video, and keeping all that data in a central system is pretty advantageous, right? An employee of company X has a habit of downloading the albums of record label Y, which is a subsidiary of company Z...the system performs some calculations to determine if that employee should be let go...the employee is fired. Employee loses their job, gets stressed out, maybe goes homeless. And who the fuck is going to listen to a "crazy homeless person"?
Shit, advertisers already examine everyone's browsing habits. This is as simple as plugging that information into already-existing infrastructure. From the perspective of a huge corporation, Erratas sounds genius - set up an automatic system to marginalize anyone who doesn't conform to what they're expected to do. I'm probably oversimplifying it or even getting it just plain wrong, but you know what I mean.
If anyone gets fired in the next few days, report back here.
Corbin, Kentucky is a real place. The 200 besides it is pretty useless unless we had a street to connect it to. Also the zip besides it isn't even for Corbin, but rather for Louisville. Given the audio quality of the vid, its safe to assume that youtube's auto generated captions picked up something "kentucky" and then translated the other sounds next to it to be something related to Kentucky in order for it to make sense. If CFL actuay lived in Corbin, Kentucky, however, that would be a shitshow. Someone should ask him.
maybe erratas is trying to find a connection to CFL autonomously through text strings and whatnot? there doesn't seem to be any actual info about lee watson/cronosforlife.
don't forget tod ellsworth and the kfc murder chicks video, either. kfc, obviously, = kentucky.
i mean your comment on that video is really the only linking proof that it was there in the first place. Theres no reason to suspect that he owner of the vid would have kept the desc anyway. Maybe he was planning to change it and your comment just "sped" up the process.
Yeah, he might be, but then it still leaves the question of why the anagram and the Jurassic Park connection. Like is there some connection between Erratas and Jurassic Park? Maybe it would help if someone was able to figure out what some of the near-unreadable text in some of the Chronos videos actually says.
well, it could just be a coincidence. "ellsworth" is a common last name. i wouldn't rule out a connection, but i can't think of a reason why his name would be a deliberate anagram for "The Lost World".
A coincidence seems pretty unlikely though, don't you think? I mean, Chronos specifically mentions that the second Jurassic Park film is his favourite (which is The Lost World), he talks about Erratas, and now here's this video that mentions Erratas in the description and the uploader's name is an anagram for The Lost World. Also, isn't "Tod" a much less common spelling than "Todd"? I wouldn't rule out the possibility of some connection between Tod Ellsworth and Chronos, though I doubt that they're the same person.
same anon here who tried to decode the morse. i come with updates:
1.) YouTube channel Tod Ellsworth has removed "Erratas or bust!" from the description on the video he posted titled "KFC Murder Chicks - Golden Age of Gross Mystery (Full EP)"
Update, I just checked and its back now, except now it says "Erratas or Busts." He must have changed it within the last hour or s because that's not what it said at 2:00pm.
2.) Tod Ellsworth has a Twitter, or at least I assume so
3.) I was wrong about my initial decryption of the morse, what i have so far is .... stop ---.--..-..-- i dont know where the other stops are because its really hard to hear for me, but the likely translation of this (that i have found) so far is HOW with a possible F afterwards
I isolated the morse code sound as best I could. Converted I got:
the code is only in the left channel. I split the track, inverted the right channel, made them both mono, and merged them in audacity. Then I dropped some low and high pass filters plus equalization at 500Hz and a slow down of about 50%, in case anyone else wants to try. I used the waveform mostly for the dashes and dots, but not all of the song cancels out.
"hollywood abortion clinic"...?
Out of curiosity, how are you getting numbers from Morse code?
Oh god, what the fuck? I seriously hope that Twitter is NOT related. This is getting pretty dark.
oh and this. probably unrelated but i thought it was interesting.
the image itself is nothing notworthy (aside from being hair-raising), its a police sketch. However, maybe there is some hidden code thats injected into the specific twitter photo itself. Im not sure how to find that out.
Oh wait, I just realized the Twitter is going under the name of Tod Ellsworth. Okay, well maybe it is Tod's or maybe not and it's an anon who's been watching these threads and decided to mess with us. Or both.
the link found on errata security's facebook page to their blog. Aside from having some plain looking html, the website doesn't seem fishy at all, even as far as having references and links to reddit. This part seems like a dead end unless theres more to that website and the company itself than whats presented at first glance.
the dates on the tweets are from December so I dont know if its an anon, but the only real reason i think its tod or chronos is because of the @ErratasOrBust, i disregard the the other name though i would suppose its pretty good supporting evidence
Literally someone from the same thread uploaded a video then posted it up for people to begin clicking on it... and now everyone is calling it a mystery? You can see when it was uploaded people.
again, is there anyway to find out if code was injected into the picture compared to the original. What person tweets that photo when he has 0 followers and 0 following? Who is he doing this for?
It's just a hek of a lot of effort to go through just to have a slim chance it'll trick people. The video was one of quite a few videos posted in the original Deep Internet OP on /mu/, so the poster would have had to be betting on anons noticing and caring about it, as well as on someone finding out about the mention of "erratas" on that other YouTube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Zly8MhTOJw&feature=youtu.be), which, along with the Twitter account, he would have had to have set up three months in advance. A lot of effort just to have the chance at freaking out a bunch of anons.
Wait wait wait, let's take a step back here. Let's look at the bigger picture.
Is there literally morse code in a Jurassic Park/R Kelly mashup video made by a dead lady?
Can we take a moment to appreciate how crazy this already is? Normally these weird internet mysteries take months to get good and then simmer down in the end.
What if 2016 becomes the Golden Age Of Gross Mystery???
any ideas on what this is?
Man ijs, listen to my clip. Download it and look at the wave form. It's clearly morse. I don't know why tf it's there, but it is. Weird shit. And the fact that it was only in the left channel tells me someone wanted it found. It was too easy to cancel out the song.
Could also be that dit-dit-dit noise that happens to speakers when a non-smartphone cell phone gets a phone call? Maybe the videos are so lo-fi because he directly captured them with a capture card, and got a text/call while transferring that video?
Probably just someone from this thread. The archive says it was made literally just today and everything else in this whole thing has a certain cohesiveness for lack of a better word (i.e., all posts made in a 6-month time frame, and no codes, except for the possible morse code in that one video).
I mean yeah I guess it could be interference, but I don't think it would be isolated to a single channel like that. Plus that usually sound more modem-esque than morse pulses. I won't disagree it could be interference, but I think it's unlikely.
Hey do y fucking talk to me like that you reddit tier shit poster I've been on /x/ far longer than you also I wasnt dismissing the thread just confused fuck you this is an obvious arg anyway
There's nothing in it so far, but later tonight when I'm off I'll start copy-pasting things from the thread
So do you work at Universal Orlando or Universal Hollywood? I'm in LA and listen to NPR once in awhile. Haven't as much recently but now I want to start listening in for the Kronos ad again.
>the dates on the tweets
Holy fucking shit.
>the morse code stuff is still happening since last night
Hell yes. I've been thinking about this shit all day. What the fuck is going on here?
>9 Dec 2015
>20 Nov 2015
Time to crack each others heads open and feast on the goo inside.
The twitter account was made and posted on long before yesterday, when it was suggested in /mu/ to make a twitter to log this info, thus proving that this couldn't be some anon fucking with us. Also, the photo on the twitter was posted one day before the Todd Ellsworth music video with the "erratas or bust" description.
its a code phrase for an ai system that supposedly goes by other names and is interconnected with many different functions including but not limited to copyright, employee managment, and database flagging
I don't know shit about morse code or audio artifacting but I pulled up the waveform of the beeps and there are some pretty obvious patterns here. Idk if that's an argument for or against audio artifacting, or if it means anything at all. I guess if anything it tells us that if it is morse code, there's probably some sort of repeating message in there.
Even if its not actually part (just some troll) inverting it shows a few patches of discoloration (Brownness splots)
Could be part of a larger picture or just random static.
Remeber that Chronos mentioned that he's "very good at recognizing patterns" and that he still hasn't actually clued anyone in on what he realized his mom "discovered" in the JP trilogy, or how he figured it out.
He seems really self-conscious about looking "crazy". I get the impression he knows a ton of weird shit about Erratas but has trouble articulating (for a variety of reasons; self-professed lack of computer/programming knowledge, maybe not a native English speaker) and doesn't want to spill it all at once and look like some kind of psycho.
Reverse image searching the face sketch pulls up this article from 2005.
Not sure what the connection is?
You know a thought just occurred. With all the major companies that are supposedly involved, you guys think this has anything to do with the walmart store closings going on across the country?
Its just strange as I worked at a walmart that is closing. I was always told by the management that they always told me that they made money despite the low traffic. ITs odd the store itself was in really good condition and not even 20 years old too.
>across the country
Across the WORLD. Here in Brazil they closed 60 fucking stores without much reason. We thought it was because of our shitty economy diving deeper, but if this is happening in 'murica too something must be going on behind the curtains.
What the fuck!! What if this is part of the "secret"? A hired crew member was a rapist, which would've led to a big scandal with Universal Pictures, and Chronos' mother wanted to expose it? Maybe that's what's in the morse code, like it's the dude's name?
I've been saying it like AIR-a-taz (instead of air-A-tas) in my head to differentiate it from just the plural of errata.
Yea theres a bunch over here. A couple stores I know of are actually in good shape (But granted are close by other more busy stores).
Its also kinda weird that some of the workers didn't even know about the closing until it was reaching headlines.
Still kinda a coincidence but with all this stuff it makes it a bit eerie.
Reading more about these rape cases now. Seems there were a string of sexual assaults against elderly women in Hawaii back in 05. Haven't found anything that says a suspect was captured yet.
Tbqh I'm lost by this point about the whole Erratas thing but I like this music involved. R. Kelly, Bone Thugz, PJ Harvey, KFC Murder Chicks (I found their other album, but haven't downloaded it). Good stuff.
That shit reminds me of the Wyoming incident.
Ok for the first time I feel a bit uneasy about it thanks to you guys.
There shouldn't be any harm in just casually mentioning it right? Even in a joking matter.
Not like even emailing it or entering it anywhere. Just talking to one of the tech dudes or something.
It would have to be planned since October at the very least, and it would have to bank on that Deep Internet thread becoming popular.
Again, a lot of work for an audience of sub 1000.
Everything considering, I'm having trouble believing that these three things are coincidence and not connected. Clearly Tod Ellsworth posted that police sketch for a reason, and it just seems too coincidental that his name is an anagram for The Lost World, which was filmed in Hawaii, which is where the rapist depicted by that sketch (who apparently was never found) committed his crimes.
The only question now, is what is the link between Jurassic Park/this rapist, if the movies were filmed between '92 and '00, and the rapes didn't occur until '05?
Maybe I'm just getting swept up in the sensationalism, idk.
Obviously there is time travel involved!
But seriously I can't help but think we are missing something somewhere. Anyone know if there is anything interesting about the specific locations in Hawaii during that time outside the movies?
>The only question now, is what is the link between Jurassic Park/this rapist, if the movies were filmed between '92 and '00, and the rapes didn't occur until '05?
If the "crew member" theory is to be believed, then that would mean Universal (or whoever was in charge of hiring the crews) inadvertently hired a rapist, and his crimes were covered up to prevent a scandal (because, frankly, that would be BIG news - "crew member of huge summer blockbuster rapes local elderly women"). He stuck around in Hawaii, and '05 is the first time police are able to make a sketch of him.
As for the connection to Erratas...I don't know, too much guesswork and the implications are very disturbing there.
that picture is old af
spoopy police sketches sure are catching on these days (pic related)
For those of you still questioning the Errata program itself, what it does is obvious. It's implied by the name.
It "fixes mistakes." In this case, mistakes made by the big corporations that are using it/being run by it.
you MIGHT be onto something but it's not convincing yet. why would they go to such lengths to defend a random disposable crew member? unless this guy himself is connected to something else
Well, I always thought the one in your pic was meant to be funny rather than spoopy.
But...maybe the picture of the Hawaiian rapist is just meant to be spoopy? I mean, we don't really *really* know Tod Ellsworth's connection to Erratas other than his use of the phrase "Erratas or bust".
Let's look at it from this angle: re-purposed spooky police sketches are a /pol/ and /x/ kinda thing. /pol/ in particular really likes them. So maybe he's one of those red pill conspiracy types? Makes sense he'd be looking into and referencing all this same stuff.
Seems to be the implication in the name, yeah.
I find it really creepy that this guy raped 3 women over the age of 75. The sketch makes the dude look to be in his 30's? Whys he gonna rape a couple 80yo women? 80 is old. Thats about as evil as you can get. Imagine your grandma getting raped.
Maybe the link is in the second tweet? We haven't really considered that yet.
The Deepest Part Of The Deep Web Was Under Our Noses This Whole Time...The Postal Service...So Deep They're Not Even On The Internet At All.
The Postal Service. What does that have to do with anything?
starting to work on the centralized google doc. gonna be working on it now, if you have further info write a suggestion in the margin.
]so, the erratas clique is making dinos on hawaii?
would fit, the mom is so obsessed with JP that she want to believe this is re/al and just happened to find out within the 3 movies, that it is indeed real.
But the a special secret progr[43gt45z7i]am to avoid this info to leak to the public prevent it.
employees around the world fear to death and hide little infos within data/videos that all come together when digging this up.[end]
it doesn't even have to be dinos that those clique make, maybe they erratas our dna to make the perfect human(oid)
Just a thought, if we're actually considering that this Erratas software might be a real thing that actually comes the internet and deletes questionable shit, should we be backing up these threads offline just in case?
I mean, if we're actually investigating this, we should be prepared for the event that it turns out to be true. Who knows how deep Errata goes? It could erase all this shit in the next ten seconds for all we know, and we'd lose everything.
Probably a good idea to make an off site doc that has all of this shit in one place, then back that stuff up offline as well. Just in case.
I worked in movies/TV for three years as a BG actor; no one who doesn't get a crew jacket is going to end up in production photos. That means anyone "less important" (read: people with jobs that normies won't understand) than the camera guys and makeup/effects crews almost certainly won't be in any photos.
This is getting out of hand.
Why the sudden interest to dig up stuff about the JP movies? There is nothing! It's just you /x/ going full tin foil on this. It is maybe just a automated program from youtube for better fiItering. As if they would make reptoids on hawaii with dino dna and human dna.
ok guys. decode anon from earlier. i'm back. i did another clean up of the audio with a really narrow bandpass filter.
i got it this time. here's the morse:
.... --- .-.. .-.. -.-- .-- --- --- -.. .- ... - .-. .- .-.. .--. .-. --- .--- . -.-. - .. --- -. -.-. .-.. .. -. .. -.-.
it decodes to:
HOLLYWOOD ASTRAL PROJECTION CLINIC
i'm attaching the waveform with segmented notation. lines are dot/dash, circles are letter separation, and double dots are word separation.
now... WTF IS HOLLYWOOD ASTRAL PROJECTION CLINIC????
Orlando, and that was almost a year ago now. Just quick things.
And what better way for an automated copyright removal system to work than to try and go completely undetected and unknown?
I saw the first film [in theatres when I was five years old] [??????????] always shared with my mother.
The first brackets are what I can make out that wasnt in the original transcript. This would mean he is 27-28 years old
Gonna link the central google doc for the last time in case someone who is just seeing the thread wants to know. Also use it if we need to create a new thread later.
Most likely irrelevant, but thought it was worth mentioning. After doing a google search for (hollywood "astral projection") no parentheses of course, it came up with this youtube video
After looking at the videos uploaded by the user, the first two videos are titled:
"Sleep Paralysis & Choking Ghosts in Hawaii" and "New Orleans Police Rape an Innocent American Woman!"
New Orleans is irrelevant but the Hawaii and Rape caught my attention.
Again, probably just coincidence.
Of course he did, if you notice, all the accounts involved (except the one on Twitter) were created in a time-range that goes from October to January, the first relevant videos have been posted around November - January. It's not a coincidence that the daates are close too.
OP created the Deep Internet thread in /mu/ with the purpose to launch this ruse, he started the whole thing pretending he found an awkward video with a few views on YouTube (that explains why it was in the first post).
As soon as he noticed no one gave a fuck on /mu/ and started caring about actual music, he began samefagging to attract more people and keep the attention up. Then he made a second video and posted on /x/. This time, he pretended other users found important 'clues' and he keeps samefagging in this thread. Another hypothesis, he prepared everything a few months ago with all the clues and shit so that people could easily find them. Again, he made a mistake, since all the accounts involved have been created around the same date... Not to mention how some of these coincidences are fucking hilarious: a guy whose name spells The Lost World? What the fuck is this?
With that being said, nice try, OP, you are smarter than people think and you have been patient enough to wait 3-4 months to prepare everything.
My impression of it right away was that it was just some crazy shit he was rambling on about/YouTubes absolute shit auto-striking system, but after reading the transcripts, he sounds like a more or less sane person.
Senpai, the KFC Murder Chicks album has been posted since 2014.
As a side note, going through the /mu/ archives with KFC Murder Chicks as the search term turns up some pretty weird shit. A lot of posts are asking where they "disappeared to" and are suggesting that the band might actually be homeless? Maybe the band has been errata'd too? Idk.
>So maybe he's one of those red pill conspiracy types? Makes sense he'd be looking into and referencing all this same stuff.
I think this is possible.
>the KFC Murder Chicks and the JP3 Tribute video were uploaded the same day.
Seriously? Huh. Maybe this interpretation >>17285984 isn't all that unlikely...
Also, it leads me to think Tod Ellsworth (who may or may not be Chronos) is playing with us considering he took away the "erratas or bust!" phrase from the description of the Murder Chicks YouTube video when I asked about it in the comments and then a little later put it back in again. Why would someone even do that?
Still, if this is some guy messing with us and the OP of the original Deep Internet /mu/ thread was actually posted by Chronos, who planned this months in advance, then dang, that is a lot of dedication. I wouldn't rule it out as a possibility though, that this is all a hoax; after all, the video with the "Erratas or bust" phrase in the description did just happen to be /mu/-related. Even the archived /mu/ post where the anon asked what the phrase means could have been Tod/Chronos posting.
And one more thing:
You guys, I like your enthusiasm in all of this, but I seriously, seriously doubt that that police sketch has any significance other than being spooky, same with the tweet, and I also have doubts there even is morse code in that tribute video and it's not wishful thinking (though I do admit, it doesn't sound like part of the music). I would say if you really want to prove the morse code thing, someone send in this soundcloud clip https://soundcloud.com/user-44702656-822557474/jp-code-trim to someone who can interpret morse code but who has not read this anon's interpretation of it >>17285828 . If someone else also comes up with "Hollywood astral projection clinic," then I may be a little more convinced. I'd accept it as a possibility, but it'd still be hard for me to accept that either this Chronos guy (who is not very tech-savvy) or his late mother put in morse code in her Jurassic Park tribute video, especially to communicate a message as cryptic as "hollywood astral projection clinic." After all, this guy is supposed to be the one trying to figure out what Erratas is, not give out cryptic clues as if he's a part of the conspiracy himself or something.
But you know what, I'm not even from /x/, I came here from /mu/, so I'm probably a lot less conspiratorial than a lot of you guys, so you know what, if you want to keep searching for clues, than have fun!
I think the idea is that Chrono's mother put that in there, and Chronos himself noticed it and suspected that might have something to do with why the videos were being continuously taken down.
Also, morsefag's translation has already been somewhat corroborated by another (admittedly anonymous, so impossible to tell if it's a samefag) source.
This early attempt at decoding it spit out a similar, if not much more rough translation. Granted, it could be the same guy just doing it to try to back his own "real" translation later on, but that seems like a lot of trouble to go into. But again, I dunno.
Could be some massive troll, could be really. Either way, I want to figure out what it means.
>that this is all a hoax
If that's really a hoax made up by some anon then we would probably find more about all this. We clearly didn't finish "his game". Hoax or not, there's still things to discover imo.
So I just join and made some research about JP2. It seems the shooting end in Universal Studios Hollywood where they built Site B workers village which is still there atm as an attraction. Could it hide the astral projection clinic ? I don't think so desu
I can't find any links between an astral projection clinic in Hollywood and this Errata system, this just isn't logical. Or maybe Errate isn't supposed to be an informatic system but more like a mind-control system through Hollywood meaned to "erase" the bad thought ?
I've looked all over Google for anything about "Hollywood Astral Projection Clinic" and couldn't find shit. I live in LA though, so if anyone can find anything that points to a specific physical place in Hollywood, I'll volunteer to go check it out on my next day off/after work sometime.
>Hollywood Astral Projection Clinic
What the fuck would this be anyway ? What the purpose of an astral projection clinic, in Hollywood ? and how would it works ?
It would be better to understand what we're looking for
>Hoax or not, there's still things to discover imo.
True. And you guys can have fun with that, and with this whole morse code, "hollywood astral projection clinic" idea. But I'm starting to lose interest. I'll probably check back in every once in a while to see if any progress has been made, but I'm personally going to give this a rest for now. Good luck, everyone.
Well if it is an ARG created by some anon, I'm sure he'll show up and push us in the right direction. If not, then hopefully Chronos lets us in on a little more with another video or something.
>There is some weird shit here in Hollywood man
Yes of course, but I was trying to understand what it really was. "Astral projection clinic" is not really self-explanatory about the nature of the place. How they would use astral projection ? Who're the customers and what are they looking for ?
That doesn't really make sense
Customers I'm guessing would be weird rich Hollywood types who want to get into spiritual astral projection shit. What it has to do with Erratas, Chronos, or Jurassic Park, I have no idea. The only obvious link is that Universal Studios is based in Hollywood.
docufag anon here
Chronos has been uploading very rapidly, and given the time of day that he uploads, hell most likely create another video tomorrow answering more questions (since he said there were a lot).
Not exactly "Hollywood Astral Projection Clinic," but I found something pretty close.
Maybe we could contact the "doctor" and see if she's ever heard anything about a Hollywood Astral Projection Clinic, or possibly even Erratas?
wish I could prove it, but I'm the one who posted this thread, and I definitely didn't start the thread on /mu/, although it's possible Chronos might have
does anyone think Tod Ellsworth is supposed to be a coincidence? I thought it was obvious that Tod Ellsworth is Chronos trying to get more information out without getting caught by Erratas, if this is legit
>Dr Carol Francis
Is this that fat bitch ? If yes that's far from what we're looking for desu
>weird rich Hollywood types who want to get into spiritual astral projection shit
That's not weird enough to be hidden imo
I think about it at first but they're definitely not looking alike.
Nobody has spoken about it if I'm not wrong but why did Chronos put AOL as a picture on youtube and google+ ?
>I thought it was obvious that Tod Ellsworth is Chronos trying to get more information out without getting caught by Erratas, if this is legit
Could be. It would have to be a coincidence then that his other YouTube channel, Tod Ellsworth, uploaded a video that just happened to became popular in /mu/ share threads, the same board which just happened to link his Chronos video in the Deep Internet thread OP.
Also, does anyone have any clue what "Chronos" is supposed to mean? Like, I'm assuming it's a character or something because of the "ChronosForLife" thing, but I don't know who, or if there's any connection to Jurassic Park. Could just be the name of a character from some obscure book he read as a kid or something, like it might not mean anything important, but I'm curious.
And can someone confirm whether Jurassic Park-branded "oatmeals and sugary cereals" actually exist?? Because if they don't, then that's almost a guarantee right there that this is a hoax/ARG since Chronos mentions his mom buying those in his video.
>Her temp agency gave her a job at this place that was closing down all their locations in the country and basically it was well-known that they were shady and generally treated their employees like cattle.
>Another thing was that she said that the atmosphere at the place was like hellishly unhappy in a really unreal way.
>No work being done there seemed to actually make any impact or have anything to do with anything else, everyone was just doing what the computer system would tell them to do. Even weird useless shit, like making something and putting it in the warehouse, and then having a forklift guy come and pick up the same product and take it to be thrown away. Like really kafkaesque shit. No one was allowed to leave the grounds once they clocked in, too. There was apparently a cafeteria but for some reason they couldn't use it.
could this video found in the second thread have anything to do with this story?
look here: it seems someone posted it without leaving any comment.
the video is filmed in a place that could fit the one mentioned in the story, also the uploader left some code in the description and there are binary messages in the comments.
could the dude here have attacked the mother of the guy making these videos? he seems to prefer older women when it comes to choosing his victims, but it could also be someone who tried to kill her or scare her so she wouldnt talk
Nope that's Cronus (=/= Chronos). Chronos is a three head serpentine. Maybe he became Cronus in the late mythology though since if I correctly recall Chronos was in the early mythology and then kind of disappears, or became Cronus since they're both seen as master of time.
>"the morse code in the video translates to: is this real what have i done"
>"the (normal) text in the desc reversed says I aM sEeiNg hiM"
Man I can't find any businesses around Hollywood that (publicly) is about astral projection.
Found a place near Hollywood called Spiritualist Center, but nothing about astral projection either. Maybe its a club rather than a organization?
I don't know since the only people visiting the website are people from 4chan laughing at it.
Maybe there's some people posting on the forum without even understanding that they're alone
Haha holy shit, just imagining that one poor bastard who has registered for the forum, posting in response to threads that he thinks are live but in reality are be posted on a completely different website hours before. Pretty fucking funny.
I couldn't come up with anything that makes sense so far, but I think I might have a good idea at what the code would be transcribed as(if it even is mores code, or if it's anything at all)
As I said, it makes no sense, but it seriously does look like it would be mores. I took the file into Audacity to get an idea of it visually, and a lot of the segments are very evenly spaced and of specific tone and loudness. Though if it is mores over of that song, some parts seem distorted in prolonged because of it. It's really hard to tell, but whoever did the soundcloud file did a good job at singling it out for the most part
H N T 7 D Y M O O L A S T A A L A / O W N M N C T I O N C R I N I C
According to the first morse to text translator on google
>H N T 7 D Y M O O L A S T A A L A / O W N M N C T I O N C R I N I C
Well shit, if this really is a different anon then this corroborates the "Hollywood Astral Projection Clinic" that the morsefag posted before. Accounting for error, the similarity here is pretty obvious.
Has anyone done anything with the website stills from
Around the 1:55-1:56 mark
These seem out of place and there is something Japanese? Even the larger picture it just seems to damn blurry to tell.
>could this video found in the second thread have anything to do with this story?
I'm like 99% sure it has absolutely nothing to do with this.
But the story in the OP of that thread is interesting.
And I know I said I was going to give this a rest here >>17286175, but I'd just like to point out because I find it interesting, that the KFC Murder Chicks video, Chronos's "Jurassic Park 3 Tribute [RE-UPLOAD]" video, the first Tweet made on @ErratasOrBust, and the first /x/ post mentioning "Eratas" were made within a few days of each other (late November, 2015, with the /x/ post coming last, four days after the uploads). Also, that /x/ post acknowledges he doesn't know how to spell it, and the Chronos video also says "Erratas or Eratas." Furthermore, the first Deep Internet /mu/ thread was made only TWO days after that one anon asked on /mu/ what "Erratas or bust" meant in the Murder Chicks video description and said "What does that mean? I think I remember Erratas being some software company in the 2000s like Enron who fired all their employees or some shit." That /mu/ post, made 5 days ago, was posted on the SAME day as Chronos's upload of "YouTube is MONITORING and controlling my life."
What I'm trying to say here, is this seems to all point towards this all being just an elaborate set up, an ARG. I was totally against that idea before, but now, after considering the coincidences that would have to be involved, it seems actually pretty likely, especially given the other points I brought up here >>17286094.
Okay, now I think I need a break from all this. Too much conspiracy-stuff for me.
I googled this, and turns out it's an 80s style electro artist. He has an album named Hawaii, but I'm pretty sure that's unrelated. What's really strange is that I was looking through the fine print of the bandcamp page, and I found out that someone I went to college with worked on most of his albums.
Well I found Swagbucks. Not sure what it has to do with anything though.
Seems to be some cafe with a appliance store next to it. There might be a empty store between the two or something. Not sure if thats right however. The 11B looks like part of a webpage or something.
Swagbucks seems to be one of those scummy online survey/online rewards places (I WOULD NOT TRUST THE SITE). They offer digital currency (Swagbucks) for doing shit, clicking sponsor adds, surveys and the like.
Found a reddit post talking about swagbot. Apparently it was made to mine codes before someone got pissed before it was taken down or something.
I'm more wondering what is with the Japanese? And what the top picture could be? Looks like a post on a forum possibly?
There was also this but its really blurry and hard to make out.
The Japanese is simply the Japanese syllabary, in Hiragana (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hiragana). The order of the characters is simply the order the Hiragana characters are usually written in (like how English has alphabetical order, they have an order too), so there's nothing encoded by them.
Inverted the first picture trying to pull more clarity from the image. Looks like its also code or something? Cane make out some words but there is too much artefact.
Also something written in japanese that was too ahrd to read and something that doesnt look like font that says something like Vvll4? Not sure what to make of it.
OK FIGURED IT OUT
The website that has that same exact format is called stackoverflow.com. Im assuming one of the topics is about DBMS_XMLGEN.CONVERT. The post seems to quote another post too. If we can find peaches post we may be on to something.
Connected to the tweet?
OH SHIT OH SHIT OH SHIT
In the "Here goes nothing" video by Chronos, if you turn on automatic captioning for the video one of the things that pops up is Corbin, KY. CHECK THE MOTHERFUCKING DESCRIPTION for kfcmurderchicks
>send inquiries to:
kfc murder chicks
200 corbin rd
louisville, KY 40219
THATS literally almost word for word what the autogenerated captions on youtube produced on that video.
Holy shit everything is connecting
>the captioning on the Here Goes Nothing video is automatic and not manually edited
CALL THE POLICE
I've searched this website for like an hour now, using pretty much every term I could make out from that still in the video, and couldn't find any matches. There are a bunch of users named Peach or some variant of that, but none of them are posting about DBMS XML GEN. Gah so frustrating.
Could be, but keep in mind that that tumblr is likely not the KFC Murder Chicks' actual, legitimate tumblr. Keep in mind none of the posts made there other than the one ONE day seems like something that would be posted by an actual band. It could be someone else's tumblr who changed its name recently (can you change the name of your Tumblr? I'm not sure how it works). And that post—"we’ve received a few emails about physical releases, but we don’t really trust the post office. or i don’t, anyway. something about it gives me the creeps." seems waaaay too fishy to me. Like, it sounds way too much like Chronos put that in there as a clue to connect it with the @ErratasOrBust Tweet, and he somehow edited his auto-captions to make the connection with the Tumblr. He's got us trapped in this devious game of his. Where will it lead? I don't know... But I wouldn't rule out the possibility that he's watching this thread right now.... I wouldn't even be surprised if this >>17286927 is Chronos himself, leading us on.... Chronos, if this really is an ARG, you are a fucking genius.
well, despite poor spelling giving it away, I've gotta say this is a groundbreaking ARG if so. the sheer remove at which the clues were scattered, the appearance of contingency... damn. you've elevated the artform, whoever you are.
Strangely enough, that address doesn't exist. The closest thing I could find to it was pic related - a small cal de sac called Corbin Ct, in the zip code 40229 instead of 40219. The house number is one of the ones in pic related, but unfortunately street view won't let you go into the cal de sac.
Just strange, you'd think if it was actually one of their homes, they'd know the real address.
Okay okay. I believe you guys. That still only makes the whole Chronos thing even more impressive if it is an ARG if he doesn't feel the need to make posts here himself leading us on but has the patience to wait and see if we figure it out for ourselves.
>I've gotta say this is a groundbreaking ARG if so.
And now that I look at it again, I'm not even sure that 200 is a house number on that road. When you google it, it just brings you to the generic Corbin Court, and doesn't point out a specific house on it.
I hope this is all for a new album, I like this band now.
I have literally no experience with mores. I just played it by ear for a while and looked at the audio, and that's around what I could find. Naturally there was gonna be a lot of error, but I posted what I could
I know it's crap but I looked at the forum post and here's what I came up with it after a little digging.
Who the hell even found this guy's videos anyway, and how? I just remember seeing them on here a few months ago, along with some other shite vids from youtube with under 1,000 views, and now I come here to see this.
