Inner Lobby 8IO-4: "Writing on the Walls (We're Still Waiting)"

In which your Operator awaits the Daytime Manager in an interrogation chamber, tells a spooky bar story, and writes his madness word weapon all over the walls and furniture.

8IO-3: "Writing on the Walls (We're Still Waiting)"

V/13/74 - Extracted Memory, Annotated by O - Date of Memory circa. II 13/74

Operator Log:

[Details O experience in waiting for the appearance of _DM in Interview-1^ and experiencing increased psy-op offensive pressure. In a brief monologue, O recalls an experience in the Union Shop Dance Club, speaking with an active dreamer named McCartney, in which the two watched themselves be broadcast on the club's dormant television set, leading to the discovery of the highly-unstable open-circuit viewing available through the television sets scattered throughout the hotel, and the installation of a portable set in the Lobby across from the Operator Desk. O comments on strategy and setting up means of defense, regarding what to expect of _DM, compares threat inside of room under psychick attack and outside under more brutal and obscure dangers, and prepares leximal defenses by writing random words on the door in a sigilic pattern, and spreading out onto the wall containing the door. He overturns the desk, continuing to write and speak words on the underside. At this point in the memory, extracted during a procedure at remote station HCF+, the inner-mind interference created by the feed-back weapon causes an unexplained channeling incident, which O gains control over with deep breathing, giving an OM chant as _DM entered.]

Inner Lobby 7XB-3* - "Basement Tapes 2"

7XB-3: "Basement Tapes 2" - ("Basement Man" _B)
V/12/74 - Origin unknown, intercepted - Recorded via Remote Desk HCF+

This case and recording are truly bizarre. What you are about to hear is another intercepted recording of what I can assume to be an account written by the Basement Man. Only, the voice is not his. It’s mine. My voice on the airwaves. It’s an account...that I never recorded.

Operator Log:

7XB-3: "Basement Tapes 2" - ("Basement Man" _B)

V/12/74 - Origin unknown, intercepted - Recorded via Remote Desk HCF+

[Intercepted audio recording of an EH broadcast in the IL form, detailing what O blieves to be continuation of the basement account. _B describes "slamming noise from phone in [_2]'s hand"; three sets of feet running through hallway into stairway X-(X+1); _B terminates conversation with _2 (see 2IX-1), leaving Rm. X (3B) into hallway X (dark purple/green flowers). Stairway X-(X-1) taken to hallway X-1 (red/purple, cool). _B describes whispers in hallway, "concerned with [his] presence but not angry." Encountered conspicuous door 13(X-1), (utility lock, wide door like janitor's closet) and entered.]

{NOTE: Interception of this account via remote recorder similar to a paranormal hack "ghost box," which receives and transmits moving through the Hotel or astral landscape. Account received was an IL report, apparently taken out of time in a future or timeline which has not presently come to fruition. Case reminds me of a remote viewing of Russel Targ, a noted expert in the field, in which he was viewed by a colleague as being in the documentary film Third Eye Spies, her seeing from the camera's perspective, the film being the most concise, psychickally available source of information. I believe these devices work under similar means, and that somehow this interception of my own transmissions out of time was easier than transmitting the original message, which from the context of the recording, was originally a written account. More questions than answers regarding the Basement Man. We'll see what happens next and investigate the space upon our successful return to L.}

NOTE: synchronistic and spontaneous title of underscore to intro to 7XB-3: "Sympathetic Sim 3 Under 7XB-3" taken from "Simulation 3 for Mandolin" without thinking.

minisode V - Bob McKenna (Clubhouse on Highland)

This is a magical and inspiring interview with a man who is of the bravest of hearts I have had the pleasure of knowing. Bob McKenna operates the Clubhouse on Highland, an elegant wedding destination in Southside Birmingham, which, we come to find out, also serves as a nexus of loving and expansive endeavors of all kinds during the week. Bob has worked as a clinical psychologist, and according to an unbiased review of one of his wedding clients, is a “prince of a man,” a sentiment I will enthusiastically second. In this interview we talk of struggle, compassion, our pervasive curiosity and hope for the future, and how to form a business and a life around the mission of love. Book your wedding or art show or function of any sweet kind at the Clubhouse on Highland, with links below. 

Music for this episode comes courtesy of my bill-mates at the Nick back in March, the esteemed Polly Panic (Asheville), and Poly Action (Austin). Murder of Jane Crow also joined us, and you can hear all about their work on our own Episode 27. First is Poly Action with their eponymous song recorded live at DZ Studios outside of Chicago in Hickory Hills, IL. After the interview we’ll ride out the feelings with Polly Panic’s cello-monium in the track “Purpose.”

Thank you for listening, as we rejoin you in the interview room at last. To progress, to purpose, to the future. Semper paratus. Welcome back to the Earth Hotel. See you back in the Lobby on Sunday. + + +

Inner Lobby 6SC-2: "Rabbits Told Me"

6SC-2: "Rabbits Told Me" - ("Rabbit" _C)
V/1/74 - Telegram - Remote Desk HCF+ Box

From the continuing account of the unknown person submitting words to our psychick mail, known for now as “Rabbit” or _C, in the technical log. For the first part of this thread, see Entry 3SC-1. We hope there will be more to come, as we are set to change location again as we approach the infiltration/recapture of the Main Operator Desk in the Lobby, in whatever state it might be. Think hard on it folks. Picture it to keep it alive and functional. We can really use your brainwaves and intentions right now. Thanks. -JC

5IO-2: "Waiting for the Daytime Manager" (IV/5/74)
Recording Retrieved from Remote Device, Annotated by O - [Remote Desk CDCG+ Manual Entry]

Our own recording which miraculously survived the psychick interrogation. As Jacquie, “O” in the operator’s log, sat in the “interview” room waiting for whatever may come from the occupying forces in the Lobby, he was able to capture this detailed information regarding the ordeal, which after the fact has incredibly valuable in developing an understanding of our threat and a strategy for the operation.
