      I think it might represent that they're closer to his heart? I don't know for sure, also, i released that what i was trying to cipher as a 7 was actually an L upside down.
      We will see. Also anyone who has ordered one should probably post what the back looks like.

      i find a release of material between avery and aeroplane to be quite the stretch, at least based on what is offered about the creation of aeroplane and the focus on those songs. the idea that this is stuff post aeroplane is a given, albeit i think that arguably might be a little too straight forward for jeff. arguably.

      if we look at that image again, there is a 1, 3, and 2.

      the closeness to his heart theory doesn't make sense to me. how does having a 3 in the middle represent anything about his heart ? just curious, as i don't see where the support comes from.

      going back to at least this one element, there are 5 lines of posters (4 has a and b, which i'm going to consider 2 additional ones for argument's sake). posters 1,2, and 3 feature what i think is the Siamese twin from oh comely. two headed boy, whatever it is. the question marks may be the question posed by us, as viewers, or the inherent mystery he is trying to hide in the posters. the book cipher 1 is an image seen elsewhere if i recall correctly, some shirt he made at some point for charity or something ? i can't remember accurately.

      the 4 & 5 posters look almost like a radio has grown out of the character's head, which is different from the 3 other posters, which have mountains. 4a i specifically look at and think is an advertisement for a radio show (julian's new podcast?).

      i don't know. i'm trying to find something, just pitching things i notice, no real connections. sorry.

      Well, what i mean is that is around where the heart of said character would be.
      It feels more clear if you look at the one where he is holding his hands on it, like he is trying to cover it, though it wasn't really a theory or anything with clear grounds, just some mouth spewing garbage, but mostly based upon what you said, like how not much material would exist from that time.

      I know you love your hot takes, but this is just wrong. I put it on par with Loveless—it wasn't the same, but they didn't fall into the trap of doing anything dated. It was fresh and still sounded just as heavy. I don't think we could've asked for more unless you wanted it to sound like it was from the '90s, which would've elicited criticism for being lazy.

      Yeah, I think the fact that Jeff has stated he wouldn't do another album unless he really had something to say is a good sign that he's not just going to throw some bullshit out there like American Football is doing (to my ear).

      For sure.

      Some of the other "clues" I haven't noticed anyone post here:

      -One drawing has the words Magicicada cassini, which is a *locus that appears every 17 years in Northen Georgia, due in 2017
      -The back of one says "Ask the Elephant Eggma", Aunt Eggma Blowtorch Jeff recorded at age 17

      Everyone is entitled to their opinion and I don't want to be hyperbolic but this is wrong and you should be blown to tiny bits by a firing squad. That album is insanely good. I connected more with that album than any other album in recent memory. Only tomorrow is one of the greatest rock songs ever made.

      Magicicada is not a flower, it's a type of cicada?
      Where did you get the flower thing from?

      You're right, I misread locus for lotus
