    Default Dooley video

    Is the Doug Dooley video on the TCWAF site new? I don't remember seeing it before, so I assume it is. It appears to be shot in San Francisco (Leos Tire and Brake, Pier 70, the high frequency sign amazingly is actually this one tagged from SF Caution High Level Radio Frequency Energy Area | Flickr - Photo Sharing!). Not sure what that means though with a CA find already.

    Had to figure out where the video was, but unfortunately it's not where I was hoping it to be.

    Default Summary?

    I no longer have speakers on my computer. I suppose I could go to the library or a friend's house to view the Dooley video, if it holds clues. Meanwhile, could anyone provide a summary of its contents? I watched a couple of minutes without sound, but I wasn't getting anything from it. Is the man in the hat burying a number, or is he a junior deducer looking for the twelve?

    I did notice that he picked a flower in the first few seconds. I was thinking that a flower (perhaps the one on the roof?) may be a clue in this final hunt.

    At 3:09 in the video, he is traveling on 20th Street and passing Affordable Storage located at 901 Illinois Street, San Francisco, 94107. Sara, he is mostly talking about what he thinks is a clue or not a clue. I'll try and do a transcription later this morning.

    Here's a transcript through the first half of the video, to 4:17. There are a few places where I wasn't sure what he said, those are marked with ???. I think I got most of what was said, but it may have a mistake or two. I'll try to get the second half transcribed later today.

    This is good. This is definitely good here. (picks flower)

    Are you finding anything?

    It'sssss, uh you know, not really. Dirt does definitely tell the story, but this story is not really happening right here, unfortunately. Hoping for it to be a little more, significant, but nothing.

    Oh this is a good ah, (spreads fabric to kneel on) this is for my knees, I've ruined enough pairs of pants on this job. Just looking for trace. Trace elements of clues, you know, echos of clues, not a clue exactly, I'm looking for a clue of a clue... A homage(?) to a clue, that's what I like to call it, an homage(?) to a clue. Cause this is not so straight forward as your going to look over there and it's going to be spray painted on the wall where your looking with an arrow sign, it's going to be, a you know, whispers, whispers. OK

    (driving in car) I like to drive in the car, to where I'm going. the spots where I'm going I'll take the car. and I'll be looking as I'm driving,(points out window as he drives past building) clues, broken windows, clue*. Doug Dooley goes to the supermarket like anyone else. but he's driving, but he's searching, he's still looking. ??? I'll stock up on stuff that I can bring with me on the road. You know, trail mix, ahhh, oranges, that kind of stuff. I have people, always when I'm driving, there goes Doug Dooley, he's searching he's always searching. That's where ??? was, right down there. There goes Doug, hey Doug did you find it yet? Oh yeah, I found it, ha ha ha. I say you don't even know what you're talking about.

    Look at that, (points to sign) no stopping, no stopping Doug Dooley, no stopping the search.

    High level radio frequency area (points to sign)Good, I think that's a damn good thing(grabs lock)except for these guys.

    *Note the window sections are eight across. Binary?

    Thank you, enaxor. I expect this will help many of the remaining deducers. Very helpful.

    Default Bad example?

    It seems to me that Dooley is mostly showing us what not to do. He is far from the track. I think possibly we should do the opposite of everything he says.

    Among the things he says to do that surely we should NOT do:
    Go to an area with no parking or stopping
    Break things
    Trespass

    No = Go

    No go = Nova (car)

    Much of the video has him tooling around in his Volvo.

    The "human blood" looked like axle grease.

    Default Repeta

    As Dooley speaks about repeated clues, he is standing (again) by the windows with graffiti. I can't decipher the letters very well (maybe the white ones are gprMo), but the numbers 7.7.7 appear in three places. In addition, on the telephone pole, a yellow and black label has many repeated numbers:
    110033855

    There is a thingie next to the 8. 8 is not repeated there, but is repeated on the 9th floor in the book.

    One of the 7.7.7 repetitions is pointed to by an arrow. He comments that one should not expect a clue to be spray-painted on the wall with an arrow. Another arrow is said to definitely be a clue, along with smoke, reminiscent of the arrows and smoke in Quello's apartment.

    Does anyone see any other repeated things?

    Echoes of clues:
    The fuzzy scarf Dooley uses reminds me of Quello's white scarf. That was not apparently a clue, however.

    As Dooley drives around, there are a few editing cuts. He appears to follow a route west on 20th street from the closed Sims Metals, right on 3rd St past Leo's Tire and Brake, and around the block via 19th and Illinois St. The graffito he passes near Leo's is actually there in google, although Leo's appears to have been repainted. It features a G with an arrow.

    One of the more compelling things I noticed was when Dooley stopped to explain his "repet ... repetta" terminology (hilarious). On the telephone pole behind him are a circled 3, the letters "CA," and a 13.

    Considering that floor 13 has not come into play yet, it definitely caught my eye.

    I'm going to re-watch to see where there might be more misdirection.
