Frame 10 Clue 2 - Now With Added Foliage 181

The second clue for Frame 9 is posted, it appears to be the same clue with what appears to be some ivy or a hedge behind it.


The image used for the background appears to be a free stock photograph that has come from a Swedish website.


Thanks to James for letting us know first about the clue, and Waffle for showing us where the Ivy photo came from.

Update - The Hub page has been updated so that only the merged image is displayed, move the mouse over the clue picture above to see how the clue originally appeared.

Have you noticed that on the free photo site, it says you can use them for any purpose, but please leave a comment or something in the guestbook.

I can't see anything from Tyson.

(Oh and First ! by the way, I haven't done that for a while)

Nice one Zort!

Hi Kiwi-Lostie, not keeping you up are we :-)

thorsten said...

Hollywood and Vine?

Zort70 said...

Hoolywood and Vine..... and Tokyo ?

knightsintodreams said...

tokyo rose?
melrose?
vines?
perhaps it's a garden shop...

thorsten said...

haha, yeah, I was just thinking because of 'Hollywood and Vines' on Giacchinos season one soundtrack. His track names are always funny and revealing…

Zort70 said...

I know it has been mentioned before but Tokyo Rose is seeming more likely.

Perhaps the words are split into three not two as we first thought.

I thought of Rose because of the obvious… but when I checked Tokyo Rose the outcome looked interesting, but going in the wrong direction for me. Maybe the whole thing is an anagram?

Zort70 said...

Yokes Tremolo, doesn't sound right to me !

Zort70 said...

The hub page has been updated, the original clue has gone and now we just have the merged clue.

thorsten said...

haha, okay, I'll ckeck the ivy in Photoshop for a hidden grid…

Anonymous said...

Hey i know probably very unlikely but the marc jacobs store on melrose av is covered in ivy

thorsten said...

Well, at least it's got Jacob in it, why not?

Zort70 said...

I've updated the main post with a rollover for the two versions of the clue.

thorsten said...

It appears that FRAME 10 and MelroseTokyo are set in the same typeface, so the font will propably be no hint regarding the location…

justanothersky said...

When I've looked up "Tokyo Rose" yesterday, found it was one of the nicknames Sawyer gave to Sun; not sure in which episode though.

Also not sure whether it would mean anything with the new merged image...

thorsten said...

Sawyer:
"The whole camp's pretty shook up about what happened to Tokyo Rose."

2:13 | The Long Con

justanothersky said...

@Thorsten: Thanks! That's quick.

And sorry, forgot to put the link about the nicknames in previous post. Here it is: http://listoftheday.blogspot.com/2009/01/sawyers-lost-nicknames-of-day.html

thorsten said...

no problem, just!
But the term Tokyo Rose opens a totally different can of worms… leading away from the happy bathing apes in lukewarm water ;)

Zort70 said...

The name of the photographer happens to be "Magnus Rosendhal"

thorsten said...

Maybe Hanso is behind FreePhotos.se…
After what we learned about them in MOTU, they mingle everywhere. And the Danes are not fond of the Swedes, and vice versa…

Ellen said...

*hi ya'll!*
great investigation!
xxoo

Zort70 said...

Hi Ellen, I'm not sure we are much further forward in terms of when or where yet.

Nachosaur said...

Stores covered with plants?

Zort70 said...

Nacosaur, there seem to be lots of those on Melrose in LA

thorsten said...

There must be a reason why he replaced the first image… did this happen before, that a hint was edited and the original removed?

Zort70 said...

I think that change was just a mistake, the original should have been removed and the merged left in it's place.

It is kind of like the star then star and pink cross for poster 6

thorsten said...

Or maybe he adjusted the image because we walked down Melrose Avenue in the wrong direction?

LotteryTicket said...

morning. coffee. Are you not sold on Fred Segal? Clandestine Industries/Wentz connection/collection? Tokyo style invasion (clothes hanging means style not location?)

AndySchex said...

I have to back my poster buddy - Fred Segal looks promising.

Amy Lynn said...

I wondered if the image was adjusted because someone thought we were investigating in the wrong direction.

thorsten said...

@Amy Lynn…
;))

Zort70 said...

Not sold yet, I haven't seen the smoking gun.

Zort70 said...

Us - go off on tangents ;-)

thorsten said...

I have to admit, the vine threw me off my scent. Hope the next hint will get me back to heading 305…

Anonymous said...

To me, the ivy pic on the clue doesn't look exactly the same as the free ivy pic on the Swedish website.

What the ivy pic on the clue does remind me of is the wall in Wrigley Field in Chicago.

john said...

Hello, new to all this, but thought I would join in. Gutted that I only found out about this arg today and missed all the really great designs. Only just got back on the computer after a bad year.

Anyway, I was thinking could this be an anagram? I know it's a bit lame, but I thought the word smokey fits melrose tokyo.

Also, I was looking at the BAPE website and they have a store in Japan that is called the pirate store.
When you look at the pics there are some similar sweaters.
if you go onto the site and click on stores, then the last one in the list is the pirate store. There are three pics and one has the sweaters on.

I'm in the uk, and my geography sucks, but a friend lives in the states and he's helping me, says there is a Mac Jacobs store covered in Ivy…

How does this work anyway? I see there are events, but where do the posters get sold? On the damoncarltonandapolarbear site or the place that the clues lead to?

Sorry for being such a newb!

Amy Lynn said...

The Swedish website is definitely the same picture. You can tell it's cropped and Photoshopped.

Re: Wrigley Field Ivy Walls:

Amy Lynn said...

Yeah, definitely not Wrigley.

Zort70 said...

Hi John, yes the posters get sold on the DCaaPB site, the reveal "event" gives us a URL which shows the latest poster. Then a short while after it is announced the poster goes on sale.

The last one sold out in 7 mins so you may have to be quick with your credit card.

Anonymous said...

It occurs to me (and probably others) that the clothes are associated with Tokyo - so perhaps as suggested above, its an ivy covered place on melrose that has tokyo clothing. From the comments Fred Segal fits the bill.

Scoutpost said...

Sounds like we have some good leads, although usually by this time we know "where" and are only waiting for the "when". Guess this one's a stumper and we'll just have to wait for the next clue. Sounds like we've considered about every possibility though, so it's probably going to be something/somewhere we've (you guys) mentioned.

Anonymous said...

Looking at the pics of Freds place on Melrose pretty much says it all..We'll see if the trend continues in next clue.
Thanks Lotto!!...

jeremy said...

By adding the Ivy to the background, could Tyson be telling us that the location is somewhere that didn't have Ivy before, but now it does have Ivy, similar to the star clue in poster 6?

just a thought.

Amy Lynn said...

I think you're misinterpreting the clues for Frame Six. The first clue, the star, was to indicate the location (TX), and then the X to indicate the FOB concert.

maven said...

I see we're still confused this morning! Too many directions to go in. The two I like the most: Fred Segal (ivy covered on Melrose and they carry a Japanese designer who has a flagship store in Tokyo) and Chicago (ivy covered wall from Wrigley Field is pin-pointing the city...there are a lot of Melrose named restaurants/diners, but I can't find a Tokyo connection or hanging sweaters connection).

jeremy said...

Here's a connection between Tokyo and Chicago, although it probably has nothing to do with the ARG.

Both were recently rejected in favor of Rio as sites for the 2016 Olympics.

Amy Lynn said...

Again, guys, really, what's the purpose of throwing red herrings like Chicago into the discussion? It's not Chicago.

maven said...

I don't think it's a red herring, Amy Lynn...just another possibility. We don't know anything solid yet!!

LotteryTicket said...

your welcome MEL. I think many caught onto the obvious way way way way way way back in the hundreds of comments.

Again, LA ARG followers, lurking or not, be prepared! But don't take it from me, listen to the mountain goat!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqW8HVDsbdg

jeremy said...

What's the purpose?
It's fun!

Think of it as a free-association exercise.

We're not really getting anywhere on the L.A. connection. What I mean is, based on the clues, we've determined that the reveal is most likely happening in L.A. at one of the previously mentioned clothing stores (most likely, at this point, Fred Segal's). At this point there's not much else that can be done on that front unless one of two things happens.
1) Tyson gives us a new clue.
2) Someone calls Fred Segal and gets one of the employees to slip up and tell us when the reveal is taking place.

Therefore, to fill the time, we can figure out if there is anyway the clues could be pointing us to somewhere else.
In a way, it's sort of like watching the show.
Until TPTB tell us otherwise, almost anything is possible.

Lottery, I thought for sure it was this goat

Zort70 said...

Amy, I don't think we have anything confirmed yet, just a lot of very strong suspicions.

If we could find the sweater pic that would confirm it for me.

I've looked through loads today from the shops mentioned above and not found it yet, I haven't given up yet.

LotteryTicket said...

Zort70, clothes image most likely stock photo like background to tell us that Tokyo is related to clothing, not city.

ReverendMilo, if you persist in linking images of me, my family or any of my very distant relatives in this fashion I will be forced to take necessary action resulting in long, bleating tirades which do not intentional but only seem to sound vaguely similar to your libelous link.

More on this story after a brief message from Mr. Cluck's where we put the chic back in chicken.

Frank said...

I'm not gonna go through all these comments, but has anyone suggesated Tokyo Rose. I'm not sure it would be familiar to the younger generations [i'm 32]. Google Toyko Rose. Not sure if it's relevant or not, but there ya go.

Frank said...

Also, I think Sawyer called Sun Tokyo Rose once, so maybe it's not as irrelevant as i'm thinking. Just throwing that out there.

comixguru said...

Random question: What does WFTB stand for? I keep seeing in in regards to LOST on twitter.

Zort70 said...

Frank, yes it / she has been mentioned, although we don't know where the Mel part of the clue fitsd in there.

LotteryTicket said...

comixguru, can you use this in a sentence, and I will give your the Disney or the mature audience def., or google for your own enjoyment.

Zort70 said...

Comixguru, I think it means Watch From The Beginning.

Sorry for the silly question, but what's the photo of Darlton and the other two guys on this page

all about?

I'm new to this, so forgive my ignorance, but does it just illustrate that this is the "live game" frame?

Scoutpost said...

mrtibbs- yes, whenever that pic pops up in frame, we know they have started dropping clues for the next poster.

If you want the meaning of the photo, go back to the home page and click on the archives- you have to go all the way back to the Aug. 15 post or so, but the explanation is there.

jeremy said...

I think I may have found a connection between BAPE and Ivy, thanks to Google StreetView.

Here is a screen cap I took of the area behind BAPE in L.A.
Notice the ivy.

Perhaps Tyson is planning another party-type event, like the first reveal, and it is going to be held in that parking area behind BAPE?

Thoughts?

Mrs Z said...

That's awesome Andy!! Congrats!

comixguru said...

Hiroki - Cool! Thanks!

Just found out that WFTB stands for "Watch from the beginning". A bunch of people are re-watching LOST in preparation for Season 6 and tweeting about it with #WFTB as a trending topic. follow @LOST_WFTB for more info :)

@jeremy that is true! I wish i lived closer to LA. I'd drive by and see if the ivy was there.

Taz said...

Tazz the Furnace here, and I'm convinced that BAPE will be doing something re: frame 10. High fashion? C'mon that's a dead giveaway.

@LotteryTicket - lol I like. I'll have to sign off my posts with that.

How they fit all that in the ivy I'll never know.

Out of interest, does anyone know if any of the first order prizes have gone to anyone outside the US, because i'm wondering if there's any point trying. Couldn't exactly see them shipping that Bass guitar internationally, would cost a bomb.

Still waiting on my Hatch too but live in UK.

As for the clue, i'm stumped as per usual, but more so than normal.

dylansdad said...

I don't have the fastest internet connection in the universe, and the Hub page is starting to take a REALLY long time to load all the previous frames' clue images and info.

Maybe they can clean it up a little--by the time we get to frame 16, it's going to take an hour just to load the page.

MiddayShadows said...

The "High Fashion" clue is interesting. Here's a theory:

Taking "high" literally, if there are any tall fashion-skewing buildings in that area, with some kind of display at rooftop level ("high")-be it lcd screeen, billboard, news scroller etc.- they could, hypothetically, display the url there at a given time.

That would be a similar reveal to the Buenos Aires one a couple of weeks ago...

Just a thought :)

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hey maven
Do all the storefronts on Melrose have ivy on them?

Fred Segal does, and so does Marc Jacobs.

AndySchex said...

I just checked my poster status from Transmission and its now showing "Shipped". So maybe by the end of the week?

Yay!! My poster status for Rousseau´s Transmission also says "Shipped" :) It will take longer for me to receive it because I live in Spain but anyway... can´t wait!

(I guess I shoulda figured that out :) )

MiddayShadows said...

@Maven...
I actually have a little info there...although I'm not sure if this applies to US orders(I'm in Canada):
In a previous email exchange I had with Tyson, regarding my Dharma Van print, he told me that, and i quote: "we will have to ignore any emails about mailing status before the 3-4 weeks is up since the date of your purchase."
Again, I have no idea if that applies to customers in all regions.

Martyn said...

@Maven...

I agree, every time I drive past a post van, I think, I wonder if it's in there. The wait is agonising, I don't even know if it's in the country yet.

ARGH!!!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Me too. Thanks. I guess I shouldn't assume just because you live near the area the you live the "lifestyle".

Sorry you haven't got your Hatch print yet. But you could wait up to 3 more weeks, but probably not.

Sandman90 said...

Following along for past 2 days - work interfering with my personal interests again. Good detective work everyone. I got desperate enough to go out and plug in a mosquito zapping light that's in my yard that has a blacklight bulb. After getting home from work, I walked out there in my PJs last night with my Hatch poster to see if there was anything else to see. The answer is NO. And if any of my neighbors were up, I'm sure I've now convinced them I'm crazy.

RobPerrin said...

@maven, @Martyn - I'm with you in the agony booth. Still waiting for Smokey to arrive. (I'm in Canada too.) Should be any day now, so I find myself checking incessantly for mail trucks. I know I should try to forget about it and be pleasantly surprised when it arrives, but can't quite convince myself to do that.

Melrose Ave, LA is known for many shops with ivy on the walls. So that alone doesn't give us a definite store location.

I like the LotteryTicket's Fred Segal suggestion. But with Marc Jacobs having stores both on Melrose and in Tokyo, that seems possible as well.


Have all of the previous 1st order congrats letters carried clues to the next frame reveal?

RH Restaurant is inside the Andaz Hotel on the Sunset Strip (its the former "Riot House" as recreated in "Almost Famous" - they'd be into this sort of publicity).
RH also stands for Restoration Hardware... but none on Melrose, closest inside the Beverly Center.

And if you googlemap the Fred Segal store, the url that pops up is ronherman.com.

But really, RH are my initials. Obviously, the reveal is taking place in my apartment, which does have some ivy outside. I own sweaters, I guess we could watch melrose place and a movie set in tokyo. It all fits together so perfectly, how didn't I see that!

Yep, we need to contact Hiroki Tojo. I'll put a note on his blog to hop over and follow our conversation.

It'd be hard to schedule a reveal involving both branches...I think a 15 hour time difference. Would they have the next reveal at the Toky store only -- or another LA reveal?

CITIZENS OF HUMANITY POPS UP AT RON HERMAN ON MELROSE



CITIZENS OF HUMANITY fetes the launch of their pop-up shop at Ron Herman on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles with a shopping event on Saturday, October 24th. The premium denim brand and celebrated boutique have teamed up to create a one-stop shopping destination where customers will be able to find the best of everything CITIZENS OF HUMANITY has to offer this season. Ron Herman will also be launching their brand new Jean Bar expansion to coincide with the launch of the CITIZENS OF HUMANITY pop-up shop, which will be up for approximately one month. For the first 100 customers who make a CITIZENS OF HUMANITY purchase the day of the event, CITIZENS OF HUMANITY will offer an exclusive and limited edition tote bag stuffed with the latest fall beauty products and must-haves from brands like Jonathan Product, Beauty.com and Bristols6. Also during the event, customers can also enter for a chance to win a $250 Ron Herman gift certificate.

Could be a crowded place if this is when/where the reveal will be.

James said...

good find

LotteryTicket said...

There would be NO problem for both US and Japan Ron Herman locations to reveal. Just a time zone issue from my point of view. We have a friend, Hiroki in Tokyo. I sent him Twitter message.

I don't think they are holding for Saturday, it will go Thursday a.m. most likely. Or, heaven forbid, another quick strike like Buenos Aires.

Almost 2 in the afternoon in Tokyo.
Almost 6 a.m. in London

ObFuSc8 said...

The Ron Herman store in Tokyo just opened in September.

Los Angeles and Tokyo are definitely having a bit of a fling. Kitson opened a branch in a Shinjuku department store in March, Opening Ceremony has plans for a Tokyo shop this fall, and now Ron Herman is joining the party with its first non-California store, set to open in August in a residential neighborhood called Sendagaya. (The location's not totally remote—it's near world-famous shopping district Harajuku.) Herman explained to WWD that he wants to export his brand's LA vibe to Japan, rather than let the local style influence the way the boutique is set up. That means even the small details, like the shrubbery out front, will resemble their counterparts in the LA stores. Ideally, this will be the first of many international Ron Hermans—the company now has its eye on Europe and the rest of Asia.

An as-public-as-I-can-make-it Thank You to Salvoh for being so generous as to mail one of his IThinkThatManWasYou.com bookmarks to me.

It has arrived and it is now owned by my wonderful, amazing wife, because

@LotteryTicket -- Live chat fols probably aren't even at RH...off site somewhere.

Hmmm....maybe if I call the Tokyo branch?

ObFuSc8 said...

My bad...that's Live Chat with a STYLIST...stylin' LotteryTicket?

LotteryTicket said...

Yeah, but that would be a Hi-larious conversation.

Ditto The Kharma Initiative as Salvoh was kind and generous to me as well.

Not feeling the cosmic thing just yet. Can't I just enjoy it for myself? :(

We'll get Hiroki to make the call. Bet his Japanese is spot on.

Welcome to Ron Herman Chat

Victoria: Hi. How can I help you today?

Lotto: Hello, Victoria. I was stranded on an island for 108 days wearing crash survivor's clothes and shoes. And while there was plenty to choose from I never want to wear tank tops, cargo pants and hiking boots EVER again. Can you help?

Victoria: Sure. Ron Herman carries high fashion name brands that appeal to women of today.

Lotto: Great. Let's e-shop.

(thousands of dollars later)

Lotto: I have one other question. I need to make contact with Melrose Avenue location. I believe they are in-league with Ronie Midfew Arts and have the top-secret web address which will bring happiness to many around the world.

Silence.

Disconnect.
