October 2013

  • October 1, 2013: No message update in the ASCII art. The bill gif's eye is filled with fast-reloading images of kittens, and the "OCTOBER FIRST" cryptogram is removed. The bill.gif has a new alt text "13-15-4-4-15-19-5!" Which is a combined cipher that decodes to "KITTIES!" On that same source page there is a link to another page that contains "A Forgotten Tale." In the "A Forgotten Tale" page, the remixed Gravity Falls theme song is replaced with a burning fire sound. There is a message that says "Such a curious thing..."

         1.1
         "Ow! Ow! Seriously? Was that really necessary?"

Grembert

Grembert

Grembert grabbed at the oddly smooth absence where his ear had been just a moment ago and cursed his luck. "What the hell is wrong with you witches? Can't you just accept cash or livestock like everyone else?" The witch cackled with glee, as witches are wont to do, and did a wobbly dance of amusement, her bracelets and baubles jangling in a most annoying fashion. "FOR THE FOOL WHO LISTENS, BUT YET CANNOT HEAR! A PRICE MOST CRUEL, I TAKETH YOUR EAR!"

She continued to dance with uncoordinated abandon. Now there were claps involved. She was really getting into it. "Look," grunted Grembert, "you got my ear, you've done your stupid dance, now can I please get what I came here for?" "You should be thankful!" cautioned the witch, now doing The Cabbage Patch, "My sister is less charitable than I! She takes hands! And sometimes lesser organs. One ear is a small price to pay for THIS!"

The witch reached down her own throat, like, up to her elbow, and pulled out a glowing purple vial. "That's disgusting!" exclaimed Grembert. "What?" grunted the witch. "That thing you did, reaching into your throat. How did you do that?" replied Grembert. "I'm a witch," said the witch. "Now sprinkle this into the eyes of the one you deem worthy. But only use it ONCE, or there will be ironic, horrifying consequences, you hear me?!"

"I half-heard you," muttered Grembert, rubbing his earless stump, and with that he crawled back out of the witch's lair.......

  • October 2, 2013: The bill gif. is reverted to its original state. Previous messages have been replaced with "THEY KNEW MY WEAKNESS AND SOME OF IT STARTED TO BE TOLD GOING TO HAVE TO STAY FOCUSED MAKE SURE NOTHING ELSE SLIPS BY" The alt text is back to "DEMON," and above that, in the body of the source code is, "pruh hdfk zhhn" which is a Caesar cipher that decodes to "more each week." Implying that the site's future updates will be on a weekly basis.
  • October 3 - 8, 2013: No message update.
  • October 9, 2013: No message update in the ASCII art. The site has been updated with chapter 1.2 of the "A Forgotten Tale" story. Also, on that same page's source code, all previous cryptograms have been removed.

           1.2

Grembert stumbled out of the witches lair into the bright crowded marketplace, dodging three-headed chickens underfoot and massive dragon tongues for sale on hooks overhead. A goat chewed on his boots, and he kicked it away, irritated. His eyes darted about wildly, checking for guards, but it seemed that he had calculated correctly- everyone of any status at all was away at Princess Twendeline's Sweet 16 Lip-Syncing performance. It was the perfect time to sneak up to the tower and execute his dark task.

Grembert was just about to make it through the back gate when he heard a deep rich voice. It was Deep Rich the Deafening, and trailing behind him like flies were his wizard entourage, Pifflebert the Passive-Aggressive, Mirthimere the Easily-Amused, and Dan The-Constantly-Scratching-Himself-In-Inappropriate-Places-But-Dont-Mention-It-Because-His-Cat-Died-Recently-And-He-Could-Use-A-Break.

"Grembert!" thundered Deep Rich, raising his walking stick in delight, and causing everyone in earshot to cover their ears or pull their cloaks over their faces. "I havent seen you in ages! And you never return my calls! And by "calls" I of course mean when I stick my head out my window and scream your name!" Grembert hastily hid the purple vial behind his back and tried to feign innocence. "Oh, you know me, just busy."

"Busy dodging nicknames!" retorted Deep Rich. "I know why you avoid us. But you can't fight it, Grembert!" he cautioned, "Eventually, every wizard does something which defines him, and which becomes part of his name forever." "Maybe we.........should call him Grembert the Nicknameless!" giggled Mirthimere the Easily Amused. "No, no," blared Deep Rich The Deafening, "It must be more personal." "Agreed!" added Dan the Constantly-Scratching-Himself, scratching his groin area feverishly.

"I'll have a nickname soon," retorted Grembert, "When tonight is through, you'll all know what to call me." "You're up to something!" shouted Deep Rich. But Grembert the Yet-Not-Nicknamed was already out the gate before they could stop him.

"Boy, it would be great if someone wanted to buy me a dragon tongue," muttered Pifflebert the Passive Aggressive, "Not that anyone ever does anything nice for me." The wizards all groaned and one by one pulled out their wallets.

  • October 10, 2013 - May 31, 2014: No message update.


June 2014 revival

  • June 1, 2014: Unexpectedly the site is updated. The ACII art has been removed on the main page, but a new cryptogram, "OD'E VSSJ WAPOLS" appears. When the cryptogram is decoded with the combined cipher it reads "IT'S BEEN AWHILE." The bill.gif alt text remains as the coded "DEMON."
  • June 4, 2014: A new cryptogram replaces the last, which says, "IVNSUDE FSBSWLST VCD KIFS CJESSJ." Decoded using the combined cipher, it reads, "OBJECTS REVEALED BUT MORE UNSEEN."
  • June 6, 2014: A new cryptogram replaces the last, which says, "HFSTOUDWVLS HWDDSFJE LSWT DI RWLES WEECFWJUSE." Decoded using the combined cipher, it reads, "PREDICTABLE PATTERNS LEAD TO FALSE ASSURANCES."
  • June 9, 2014: A brand new Bill ACII art has appeared of Bill holding a flame, recalling back to the scene in "Dreamscaperers" where he made a deal with Gideon. The bill.gif alt text has changed. New cryptograms replace the last; the top says "WLL DPS ESUFSDE IR DPS CJOBSFES UICLT VS YICFE" and the bottom says, "OR YIC WFS AOLLOJQ DI KWMS W TSWL." Decoded using the combined cipher they say, "ALL THE SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE COULD BE YOURS" and "IF YOU ARE WILLING TO MAKE A DEAL." The bill.gif says, "5-23-2-15-9-6," decoded it says, "SAVIOR."
  • June 12, 2014: The Bill ACII is gone and replaced with a cryptogram that says, "W AOES ILT IAL LOBST OJ WJ IWM / DPS KIFS PS EWA DPS LSEE PS EHIMS / DPS LSEE PS EHIMS DPS KIFS PS PSWFT / APY UWJ’D AS WLL VS LOMS DPWD AOES ILT VOFT? Decoded using the combined cipher it reads, "A WISE OLD OWL LIVED IN AN OAK / THE MORE HE SAW THE LESS HE SPOKE / THE LESS HE SPOKE THE MORE HE HEARD / WHY CAN'T WE ALL BE LIKE THAT WISE OLD BIRD? which are the lines of the nursery ryhme, "A Wise Old Owl." The bill.gif says, "5-4-6-15-17-15-20-23-19," decoded it says, "STRIGIDAE."
  • June 14, 2014: A new Bill ASCII has appeared, showing Bill's eye watching. The bill.gif alt text has also changed, says "9-2-19-6-5-19-19-6", decoded it says "OVERSEER".
  • June 15, 2014: The main page has a countdown under bill.gif to the season premiere of season 2. The source code has the message, "DOKS OE APWD HFSBSJDE SBSFYDPOJQ RFIK PWHHSJOJQ WD IJUS." Using the combined cipher decodes to, "TIME IS WHAT PREVENTS EVERYTHING FROM HAPPENING AT ONCE," which is a quote often misattributed to John Archibald Wheeler.
  • June 18, 2014: Previous messages have been replaced with a long message:

PWHHY VOFDPTWY NWKSE!

Using the combined cipher, this translates to:

HMM, I FEEL LIKE I’M FORGETTING SOMETHING… I THINK THERE’S SOMETHING SPECIAL ABOUT TODAY…




NOW WHAT WAS IT? OH WAIT! WAS IT THAT SPACE DYNASTY? THOSE PEOPLE KNEW HOW TO RULE A REGION AND MAKE A TASTY DRINK.

WHAT? YOU’RE SAYING NO? THEN IT’S OBVIOUSLY ABOUT THE NUMBER WAR. THEY WERE AT SUCH ODDS. EVEN WHEN THE RATIONAL ONES TRIED TO BE NEGATIVE.

NOT THAT EITHER, YOU SAY? OH, IT’S SOMEONE’S BIRTHDAY? IS THAT RIGHT? HMM. I’D LIKE TO THINK I WOULDN’T FORGET SOMEONE’S BIRTHDAY. IT’S GOTTA BE SOMEONE FAMOUS RIGHT? YOU MUST BE TALKING ABOUT MY PAL MICHIHITO. OR MAYBE FRIFTHJOF SCHUON. THAT GUY WAS A RIOT!

COME ON NOW, YOU’VE GOT TO GIVE ME A HINT. BECAUSE I’VE GONE HERE, THERE, AND EVERYWHERE ACROSS THE UNIVERSE AND I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER AND IN SPITE OF ALL THE DANGER, I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND. I BET THAT WITH THE TWO OF US AND WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS, WE CAN FIGURE OUT WHOSE BIRTHDAY IT IS. AHA! HOW COULD I HAVE BEEN SO FORGETFUL! IT’S JAMES’ BIRTHDAY! I’M SUCH A BIG FAN OF HIS BAND. THEY ARE NAMED AFTER ONE OF MY FAVORITE INSECTS AFTER ALL! THANKS FOR REMINDING ME. I WROTE A SPEECH FOR JUST SUCH AN OCCASION. HERE GOES!

THE WHOLE WORLD WILL SINK INTO THE ABYSS OF A NEW DARK AGE MADE MORE SINISTER BY THE LIGHTS OF PERVERTED SCIENCE. LET US THEREFORE BRACE OURSELVES TO OUR DUTIES, AND SO BEAR OURSELVES, THAT IF WE LAST FOR A THOUSAND YEARS, MEN WILL STILL SAY, THIS WAS THEIR FINEST HOUR.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAMES!





The message is referring to the date June 18 and the number 618, which is a recurring number on Gravity Falls and is the birthday of series creator, Alex Hirsch and his twin sister Ariel. The message alludes to the Tang Dynasty which lasted from the year 618–907. Tang is a famous space drink. The two famous people who's birthday it could be are Frithjof Schuon, a Swiss philosopher, and Machihito, aka Emperor Ogimachi. Finally, the messenger narrows it down to a person named James who is part of a band named after insects, while using song titles as a hint. Which concludes to Sir James Paul McCartney, who was a member of The Beatles. The "poem" is mostly borrowed from a speech delivered by Winston Churchill titled, “This was their finest hour." The bill.gif alt text says "5-3-6-8-6-15-5-19," which decodes to "SURPRISE."
  • June 19, 2014: The previous birthday message has been replaced with a cryptogram that reads, "VSXZX BN MR HGVIXVH HRS WMRU / HSALF A SA KCIUQ SA TBUOD OT DENRUT NOSAER / DEIRT I WOH RETTAM ON TEGROF TON DLUOC IEDISNI ETA TI DNA PU TLIUB TLIUG / DECREOC SAW DNA MIH TEM DAH I LITNU / TSRIF TA DNUORA EREW YTIRALC DNA YTINAS." This text is unusual in that, instead of using the usual cipher, the last four lines are plain English written backwards. Put the right way, it reads, "SANITY AND CLARITY WERE AROUND AT FIRST / UNTIL I HAD MET HIM AND WAS COERCED / GUILT BUILT UP AND IT ATE INSIDE / I COULD NOT FORGET NO MATTER HOW I TRIED / REASON TURNED TO DOUBT AS QUICK AS A FLASH." The first line, once reversed, translates using the Atbash cipher to: "FIND HIS SECRETS IN MY CACHE." The bill.gif alt text is "21-9-11-8-9-5-11-19-10-4-15-5". Decoded, it reads, "COMPOSMENTIS."
  • June 20, 2014: The former message has been replaced. It now reads, "HELLO DARKNESS, MY OLD FRIEND, I'VE COME TO TALK WITH YOU AGAIN." These are the first two lines of Simon and Garfunkel's 1965 song "The Sound of Silence." Additionally, the bill.gif alt text now says "5-15-12-19-10-21-19," or "SILENCE," furthering the reference.
  • June 25, 2014: The message has been replaced by empty spaces and horizontal bars. Which stand for morse code. Replace the spaces with periods and tabs with dashes and you'll get GROTECT. The alt text is now "19-6-23-5-19-20," translating to "ERASED."
  • June 28, 2014: The message is now "HSOTE OHW NDOT WNKO HOSITRY UHLOSD OG BCKA NI TMEI DNA OBERESV TI." It is not encoded, and when the letters are unscrambled, it reads "THOSE WHO DONT KNOW HISTORY SHOULD GO BACK IN TIME AND OBSERVE IT." The bill.gif alt text is "21-9-8-15-23-12-19," or "COPIALE," a referece to the Copiale cipher.

Using the combined cipher it decodes to "GETTING TRICKED BY EVIL AT MOONLIGHT / GIVING UP ON LOVE IN THE DAYLIGHT / ALWAYS RUNNING FROM A REAL FIGHT / HE IS THE ONE THAT'S NAMED PINE TREE."
