    Internet Yellow Pages
    International Year of the Potato 2008
    International Year of Peace
    If You Please

    I do see that it could be Potato, since its logo is "Hidden Treasure". Domino said "on the right track"--Could that mean it's song-related, or am I reading too much into words? When people were first suggesting songs and musical ideas on GB's "Musical References" thread, Domino posted (if I remember right) that one of the things someone had posted on that thread (he didn't say which one) was on "one of the right tracks". I had thought that could mean one of the particular songs we mentioned was the right "track". This is just a thought, but it might not mean anything.

    The IYP reference comes right after HOWL and Allen Ginsberg--"It all realted to IYP somehow and associated with a symbol he once noticed on a sign..." So I thought the IYP idea also connects somehow to "HOWL" and "Allen Ginsberg". Back when we were discussing the Nobel Peace winners, it was posted that someone named "Ginzburg" won a Nobel Prize, and someone thought this could be a homophone for this Ginzburg. He also won the WOLF Prize in Physics.

    But it wouldn't surprise me either if it's the Potato. Foxykeys, congratulations on finishing your book!

    You guys seem to be making progress. Good to see. Personally I always thought that IYP was International Year of Peace and had to do with certain artwork that related to Ginsberg's title...

    The logo I've seen has two hands and a dove. I wonder what other artwork you mean, Prof. Tarr?

    I was referring to a possible piece of artwork (using my personal theory of location) that relates to the Peace theme in the location.

    There is also a logo associated with the International Year of the Potato theme too. It is supposed to look like three spuds in a bowl on the top, then one spud underground. If you take it out of context, and try to visualize it as something else, it could almost look like an aerial view of a curved path between some trees.

    I read something interesting today about HOWL. When recited outloud, Howl was based on the rhythm of BOP music. Then if you look up bebop, it says that it is a style of music that influenced the beat generation whose spoken word style drew on jazz rhythms...Ginsberg, of course, was one of the beat poets. Still trying to figure out how to tie it all together...

    There are so many things that just run in circles. And a lot of them have something to do with music.

    I have a question that keeps coming up in my mind. Page 15 has a lot of different elements. It mentions HOWL. It has some oddly worded sentences. It has those partially underlined words. And it has two different kinds of webdings symbols. It mentions Buck Owens and a 28 inch Phillips television. I think all of these must be important. But do you think they somehow, in someway, all go together with things on the same page? Or do you think that any of these elements go with something else, somewhere in another chapter? If that is the case, then why would they be put all on this one page?

"Close by not"? Maybe Domino meant "Close but not"? If Domino meant "Intl. Year of Physics' was "close", then what could it mean that he had a picture of Einstein on his July hint?

    A couple of observations...

    The upper wingdings line is shifted +8 Letters, The bottom line is shifted +18 letters, and the text refers to a 28" TV. 8-18-28 . Numbers in a series incrementing by 10...

    Allen Ginsberg initials = AG element = Silver

    Mind thinking symbols = Wingdings faces, hands, religious and cant do symbols = buck owens songs

    You guys seem hard at it. Good for you. Unfortunately - or fortunately - I am off in my other life and can't be here for the ride. If you have the interest - check out my blog at The Missionary and the Brute Shameless self-promotion, but what the hey. Good luck to you all ! I was hoping one of you would have found it!
