Dave Dave dead or alive..... Myspace

  • on: April 26, 2010, 05:59:53 AM
Dave Dave has a new status update on his myspace page.  Before it was The man the myth the legend.  Now it's changed to wanted dead or alive.  What the heck?  His status has been that way forever and now he changes it to this.  He always post comments from people about MJ being alive too.  Why would he feed into this if MJ were really dead?  I believe it's his real myspace too.  Here's the post and his location:

Yeah I personally do believe he is in on it.  MJ was there for him as a child when he went through all that trama in his life so why not return the favor?  That would be a perfect disguise for him to go out as a real person that actually already exist.  Plus Dave is a burn victim so he could use that as a disguise without being noticed.  When I saw Dave Dave on Larry King I didn't notoce it at first but then I watched it again and I was like wow I can really see MJ in him especially in his eyes.  Also his old status said The Man, the myth, the legend.  Now why would the real Dave Dave be considered a legend.

this is a different one, too. i've seen another myspace of dave dave, which is not in the music profile category. this one was created in april 2009, so it is more recent than the other one. i wasn't even aware that he does music. the photo doesn't look like a disguise, tho, so this looks like the real dave dave.  

interesting, his major influences are michael jackson and trent reznor...very odd coupling here...the color scheme is interesting, too, with all red and black. 'mike-colors'... :mrgreen:

i'm pretty convinced, too, that it was mike on larry king, disguised as dave dave. they eyes and mimics totally gave it away. the real dave dave has blueish eyes, and i guess that eyeliner couldn't be glued over...makes me wonder why mike hasn't used contact lenses to hide his eye color... :?  so my only conclusion here is: look me in the eye! it's really me!  :mrgreen:

here's dave dave right after the larry king show with his middle finger bending BACKWARDS!  guess it's not easy to write with a rubber hand...:mrgreen:

I have done some research about the town "Covington".

We don't know which Covington he is referring to, but there is a town with this name in the US where the movie "Dead man walking" was filmed.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Covington,_Louisiana

This could be a link to "dead or alive", although I know it is quite nit-picking.

It may be "nit-picking" but I think you have found a very interesting fact, and it seems that in "nit-picking" sometimes we find a clue or at least a possible glimmer of meaning!

Regarding the film "Dead Man Walking" filmed in Covington, La, "The title (of the film) comes from a phrase once traditional in American prisons, to designate a man condemned to death. Prior to the 1960s, when wardens would lead a condemned man down the prison hallway, they would call out, "Dead man walking! Dead man walking here!" Why was this said? There are various opinions... In any case, its logic is clear: the condemned prisoner, in the eyes of the law, was dead already.''

Regarding the trial of 2005, for much of the public, MJ was guilty already.
And regarding Dr. Murray, well...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dead_Man_Walking

Also, this poem, by Thomas Hardy :

        The Dead Man Walking

    "They hail me as one living,
       But don’t they know
    That I have died of late years,
       Untombed although?"          

(Doesn't this sound like what people said MJ felt after the trial of 2005 and the years of media bias?)

You can read the rest of the poem here
http://www.portablepoetry.com/poems/tho ... lking.html

Yes, these things are obscure, but DD's status, etc. on MySpace has always been rather obscure (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/obscure)

Thanks again for researching this about Covington, friendlikeme81!!  I think you have helped shed a little light on this.   ;)

As for MJ/Trent Reznor connection....many on this board have raised the idea that MJ's Death Hoax is actually an ARG or Alternate Reality Game....Trent Reznor is the front man for Nine Inch Nails (aka NIN) and NIN was involved with some sort of ARG a few years ago....here is the wikipedia entry about that...ergo: Trent Reznor would be a perfect resource for MJ regarding an ARG

Year Zero is an alternate reality game (ARG) based on the Nine Inch Nails concept album of the same name, its expected follow-up, and a possible accompanying film or television project.[1] Although the album was released on April 16, 2007 in Europe, and the following day worldwide,[2] the game has been underway since roughly February 12, 2007 and was expected to continue for approximately eighteen months.[3] The game was created by 42 Entertainment, the same group responsible for the Halo 2 promotional alternative reality game I Love Bees.[4][5] Trent Reznor, frontman and sole member of the band, has called the game "a new entertainment form".[4] In response to criticism[6] regarding the promotion of the album, Reznor stated:

The term "marketing" sure is a frustrating one for me at the moment. What you are now starting to experience IS "year zero". It's not some kind of gimmick to get you to buy a record - it IS the art form... and we're just getting started. Hope you enjoy the ride.[7]

[edit] Premise
 
An Art is Resistance flier from the Year Zero ARG.Reznor said that Year Zero is a concept album,[8] "could be about the end of the world", and marked a "shift in direction" in that it "doesn't sound like With Teeth."[7] The 2006 tour merchandise designs featured overt references to the United States military, which "reflects future directions."[7]

In an interview with Gigwise.com, Reznor stated that the concept behind Year Zero was partially inspired by his feelings toward the Bush administration. He further explained,

I really wanted to focus on something that was at the forefront of my consciousness which is, as an American, I'm appalled by the behavior of our government, the direction that it has taken and the direction that it's taken everyone else in the world and its arrogance... I decided to write an essay about where the world might be if we continue down the path that we're on with a neo-con-esque government doing whatever it pleases...[9]

To this end, the storyline of Year Zero borrows heavily from such well-known dystopian fiction as George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four (government surveillance), Aldous Huxley's Brave New World (use of drugs to subdue the populace), Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 (large-scale censorship and uniformism), and Yevgeny Zamyatin's We (synthesis of church and state). Specific plot elements bear a resemblance to the Philip K. Dick short story Faith of Our Fathers, including hallucinogens in the water supply, an oppressive, heavily militaristic state, aggressive government monitoring of the populace, and a venerated entity which manifests in many forms. In keeping with the dystopian theme, Year Zero takes place in 2022, the same year as the 1972 film Soylent Green.

[edit] Plot
Main article: Chronology of the Year Zero alternate reality game
‹ The template below (Argplot) is being considered for deletion. See templates for discussion to help reach a consensus.›
Note: This section is about an alternate reality game plot, and, thus, any discussions of plot should be assumed to be fictional unless explicitly stated as real.
The story takes place in the United States in the year 2022, which has been termed "Year 0", by the American government, being the year that America was reborn. The U.S. had suffered several major terrorist attacks, apparently by Islamic fundamentalists, including attacks on Los Angeles and Seattle. In response, the government granted itself emergency powers and seized absolute control on the country. The U.S. government is now a Christian fundamentalist theocracy, maintaining control of the populace through institutions like the Bureau of Morality and the First Evangelical Church of Plano. Americans must get licenses to marry, bear children, etc. Subversive activities can result in these licenses being revoked. Dissenters regularly disappear from their homes in the night, and are detained in federal detainment centers and sanitariums, if not executed.

The government corporation Cedocore distributes the drug Parepin through the water supply, making Americans who drink the water apathetic and carefree. There are several underground rebel groups, mainly operating online, most notably Art is Resistance and Solutions Backwards Initiative. The First Evangelical Church of Plano is a fundamentalist Protestant Christian church which is favored by the neo-conservative government.

Amidst all of this are increasing sightings of what is labelled "The Presence", which manifests as a pair of massive ghostly hands and arms extending down from the sky into the ground. Despite early attributions of The Presence to drug-induced mass hysteria, it soon becomes clear that it is a physical phenomenon capable of being recorded on video and film. Theories vary on the real cause of the appearances, but the prevailing opinion appears to be that the hands represent God or some other equivalent supernatural force. On February 10, 2022, a government official named Doug reports that sightings of the phenomenon are rapidly being reported from all over the world. The sequence ends with a broken message announcing the appearance of The Presence over the United States Capitol Building. The message cuts off suddenly, implying the end of the world.

Working to prevent this are the Solutions Backwards Initiative, which is a group of students, professors, and computer experts who devise a successful means with which to send information back through time using quantum mechanics in order to prevent the dystopian future (and eventual apocalypse) they live in from ever occurring. The websites and music of the Year Zero alternate reality game are implied to be part of the information packets sent back through the wormholes.

[edit] Media attention
The concept behind the Year Zero alternate reality game, as well as avid fan participation in the game, has caught the attention of the media numerous times; USA Today and Rolling Stone have cited fan site The NIN Hotline, forum Echoing the Sound, fan club The Spiral, and NinWiki as sources for new discoveries.[10][11]

[edit] Film and television project
Kerrang! Radio reported that "Reznor admitted he's already in talks about a movie version of his upcoming album a concept piece, with part two scheduled for next year."[1] He had earlier noted Year Zero as "part of a bigger picture of a number of things I'm working on. Essentially, I wrote the soundtrack to a movie that doesn't exist."[8] Reznor has commented that he is currently more interested in a television project than a film project. He has stated that he has a producer and has met with writers.[12] On August 10, 2007, Reznor announced that they would soon be taking the concept to television networks in an attempt to secure a deal. "We're about to pitch it to the network, so we're a couple of weeks away from meeting all of the main people, and we'll see what happens."[13]

Since first announcing his plans for a television series, progress has slowed, reportedly due to the 2007–2008 Writer's Guild strike. Despite this, Reznor has reported that the project is "still churning along".[14]

[edit] Campaign
Main article: Campaign timeline of the Year Zero alternate reality game
[edit] Critical reception
Many reviewers of the Year Zero album also commented on the accompanying game. Ann Powers of The Los Angeles Times praised the album and game concept as "a total marriage of the pop and gamer aesthetics that unlocks the rusty cages of the music industry and solves some key problems facing rock music as its cultural dominance dissolves into dust."[15]

In 2008, 42 Entertainment won two Webby Awards for their work on the Year Zero game, under the categories of "Integrated Campaigns" and "Other Advertising: Branded Content".[16][17] 42 Entertainment was also awarded three medals in The One Show's entertainment award ceremony, including a gold medal in the "online gaming" category, a silver in the "music" category, and a merit award in the "online branded entertainment" category.[18]

pepper, I am impressed of the outcome of your further research! Well done! The Hardy poem really gives some food for thoughts, even it is just a coincidence.

Thomas Hardy : The Dead Man Walking

    They hail me as one living,
       But don’t they know
    That I have died of late years,
       Untombed although?

    I am but a shape that stands here,
       A pulseless mould,
    A pale past picture, screening
       Ashes gone cold.

    Not at a minute’s warning,
       Not in a loud hour,
    For me ceased Time’s enchantments
       In hall and bower.

    There was no tragic transit,
       No catch of breath,
    When silent seasons inched me
       On to this death. . . .

    —A Troubadour-youth I rambled
       With Life for lyre,
    The beats of being raging
       In me like a fire.

    But when I practised eyeing
       The goal of men,
    It iced me, and I perished
       A little then.

    When passed my friend, my kinsfolk
       Through the last Door,
    And left me standing bleakly,
       I died yet more;

    And when my Love’s heart kindled
       In hate of me,
    Wherefore I knew not, died I
       One more degree.

    And if when I died fully
       I cannot say,
    And changed into the corpse-thing
       I am to-day.

    Yet is it that, though whiling
       The time somehow
    In walking, talking, smiling,
       I live not now.


Thomas Hardy (1840-1928)   1899
---

Beside this connection to the poem, movie and saying the phrase "Dead man walking" that occurs along with Covington could also be interpreted at a low level as a simple reference to the hoax: Michael, who is supposed to be a dead man now, is still walking, is alive. Would be really simple, but who knows?

The government corporation Cedocore distributes the drug Parepin through the water supply, making Americans who drink the water apathetic and carefree. There are several underground rebel groups, mainly operating online, most notably Art is Resistance and Solutions Backwards Initiative. The First Evangelical Church of Plano is a fundamentalist Protestant Christian church which is favored by the neo-conservative government.

Amidst all of this are increasing sightings of what is labelled "The Presence", which manifests as a pair of massive ghostly hands and arms extending down from the sky into the ground. Despite early attributions of The Presence to drug-induced mass hysteria, it soon becomes clear that it is a physical phenomenon capable of being recorded on video and film. Theories vary on the real cause of the appearances, but the prevailing opinion appears to be that the hands represent God or some other equivalent supernatural force. On February 10, 2022, a government official named Doug reports that sightings of the phenomenon are rapidly being reported from all over the world. The sequence ends with a broken message announcing the appearance of The Presence over the United States Capitol Building. The message cuts off suddenly, implying the end of the world.

Working to prevent this are the Solutions Backwards Initiative, which is a group of students, professors, and computer experts who devise a successful means with which to send information back through time using quantum mechanics in order to prevent the dystopian future (and eventual apocalypse) they live in from ever occurring. The websites and music of the Year Zero alternate reality game are implied to be part of the information packets sent back through the wormholes.

[edit] Media attention
The concept behind the Year Zero alternate reality game, as well as avid fan participation in the game, has caught the attention of the media numerous times; USA Today and Rolling Stone have cited fan site The NIN Hotline, forum Echoing the Sound, fan club The Spiral, and NinWiki as sources for new discoveries.[10][11]

[edit] Film and television project
Kerrang! Radio reported that "Reznor admitted he's already in talks about a movie version of his upcoming album a concept piece, with part two scheduled for next year."[1] He had earlier noted Year Zero as "part of a bigger picture of a number of things I'm working on. Essentially, I wrote the soundtrack to a movie that doesn't exist."[8] Reznor has commented that he is currently more interested in a television project than a film project. He has stated that he has a producer and has met with writers.[12] On August 10, 2007, Reznor announced that they would soon be taking the concept to television networks in an attempt to secure a deal. "We're about to pitch it to the network, so we're a couple of weeks away from meeting all of the main people, and we'll see what happens."[13]

Since first announcing his plans for a television series, progress has slowed, reportedly due to the 2007–2008 Writer's Guild strike. Despite this, Reznor has reported that the project is "still churning along".[14]

[edit] Critical reception
Many reviewers of the Year Zero album also commented on the accompanying game. Ann Powers of The Los Angeles Times praised the album and game concept as "a total marriage of the pop and gamer aesthetics that unlocks the rusty cages of the music industry and solves some key problems facing rock music as its cultural dominance dissolves into dust."[15]

In 2008, 42 Entertainment won two Webby Awards for their work on the Year Zero game, under the categories of "Integrated Campaigns" and "Other Advertising: Branded Content".[16][17] 42 Entertainment was also awarded three medals in The One Show's entertainment award ceremony, including a gold medal in the "online gaming" category, a silver in the "music" category, and a merit award in the "online branded entertainment" category.[18]

Remember the "obscure" body I have found on a Dave Dave picture that was presented by CNN in September 09. viewtopic.php?f=31&t=5932
The place where this body is placed is interesting. It is placed on the back board of a video game device in Michaels arcade in the Encino house. IMO it is a hint pointing towards the game/movie theory.
