D J Dan....!SHUTTING DOWN THE MAN!


Main info about the DJDan website and DJDan:

May 16, 2006 DJDan website www.djdan.am

His website was first discovered as a hidden link inside the source code for www.thehansofoundation.org. A podcast ARCHIVE is inside the djdan website.
Many thanks to the transcribers...there are transcripts for the podcast. Please watch for links to these as you go along.

Some things to ponder:
DJDan is involved in almost EVERY in game website. I will add a list of websites to this important clue soon. STAY TUNED.

In his bios section there has a change from of him being a Desert Storm war vet to now Gulf war vet (unsure of date that happened at the moment). It has not been discovered as to why this change occurred.

On the bios page, it lists one of his possible birthplaces as Terre Haute, Indiana. Peter Thompson, from The Hanso Foundation was born there in 1959...DJ Dan sometime in the 60's.

Thanks to Bones for pointing out:
There used to be real links on his site that have been removed. click here to see active list

CORRESPONDING VIDEOS:
**note...on the same day as the website became public someone by the name "namastepete" also uploaded a video on youtube.com spelling out the djdan website. This was never verified to be in-game but did arrive on same day as djdan. click this for video**

On the DJ Dan site, there were originally a page of links to other "conspiracy theory" or "speculative investigator" sites and radio shows, i.e. Coast 2 Coast.

Not sure when but these links disappeared and were replaced with "Coming Soon."

I have just seen the links you were referring to bones. Conspiracies, strange happenings and the like. I guess they give an indication to what DJDan is like. Probably the sites he follows up on a lot. Things suggest to me that DJDan is a bit of a crack pot and gets seriously wound up in all sorts of conspiracies and knowing this we are supposed to pick out the "gold nuggets" (as someone put it) of information that would be relevant to the game.

IMHO that is. Thanks again bones for pointing out something new to me.

I wonder why DJDan said this: 'Cause he's swinging through the trees on some mountain in the Netherlands.'re Alvar Hanso? Why the Netherlands where there are NO mountains for monkey-swinging trees to grown upon? Have the Netherlands come up before as a possible Hanso hiding place?

One little addition for your entry here Lena would be the Hex codes in the audio file properties (accessible from Windows Media Player on PC).

It's been pointed out before but I can't recall if anybody's worked them out.

Normally I'd do this dead quick but it's not Base16 hex - base64 mentioned I think - and I'm letting the computer geek in me down by not doing it!!

Just for your reference the codes as I can find them but here's the latest:

REPOSTING THIS HERE FOR MORE IMPUT:

Interrobang! said...
I find DJ Dan to be very odd in general. He has never posted any information about the hanso site himeself, never showed us any proof he has. Nor has P or Rachel spoken about him at all, which means you don't know if they support each other. I also found his bio to be interesting. The three locations they have in his bio as the "hometown" of DJ Dan make a nice triangle in the southern US.

6/26/2006 3:25 PM  
Blogger Interrobang! said...

Hey all. I just used google maps to make some directions between the 3 places listed on DJ Dan's bio, Terre Haute IN, Tulsa OK, and Macon AL. Apparently Macon is a county in AL, not a city like the other two. Using google maps, Interstate 43 goes from Terre Haute to Tulsa, and then mapping Terre Haute to Tuskegee (in macon county) gives you a good idea of what I'm talking about.

It appears as though Jonesboro, AK is in the center of this triangle. Don't know what it has to do with the game, though.

May 16: Like Jessica, there are two other women who call in. If you read my post on DJ Dan Transcripts, you'll see what I'm talking about. I believe they're 'planted callers'. They're just being paid to call and read off a script.

As for the Red Sox thing, it's possible he knows who Ted Williams is and is still not a sports geek. :)

6/27/2006 2:50 AM  
Blogger Damn the Man said...

May 26: He's pointing at Widmore becuase of the phone call "yesterday" where the guy says that he followed the guy to the Widmore building. He's not picking it out of a hat or anything. Though it may be one of the corporations he has his eye on, the college kid told him about it.

He says cocaine, becuase Columbia is known for their cocaine. He's insinuating that big corporations/governments like Widmore are a part of the drug business. There are some theories that the government allows/helps/is involved with drug trafficking.

The 'stink' is that they stopped the funding to the weapons program was pulled. After the DJ Dan interview with the student, they stopped the program. That's the stink.

Firstly, because I haven't seen it brought up anywhere though I think most people realise this is the case... on the DJDan podcast page, on the left is the DJDan silhouette pic with speach bubble that says "Here are some of my favourites! Shutdown!". Clearly we are not hearing the full DJDan experience, merely his selected highlights. Maybe some periods have been real boring so he's had to go back to an even older segment, but there were a few podcasts in particular that foreshadowed or echoed Persephones hacks around the same time.

May 16: I read up on Citizen Kane on wiki to refresh my memory and they have a section on it's film making innovations, however I don't recall previously hearing that any of this could have come from alien technology.

I've done a good deal of searching but can only find one reference to colour photos of Mars from 1938. Item 34 on this list of publications. Cannot find any of these pictures though, all the sites I looked at opt for the more recent and detailed ones. That said, there is that rock formation that looks like a human face (some people still hold to that notion, though it seems to have just been a freak lighting situation).

I Googled "Idaho hoax" and found this on wikipedia:
The northwestern US state Idaho was named as the result of a hoax. Lobbyist George M. Willing suggested the name, claiming it was a Native American term meaning "gem of the mountains." It was later discovered that Willing had made up the word himself. As a result, the original Idaho Territory was renamed Colorado. Eventually, the controversy was forgotten and the made-up name stuck.

The "conspiraspy tshirt" comment is rather obvious, but maybe Jessica is just trying to score points with DJDan by promoting one of his products. I agree her comment was planned, whether scripted by DJDan or herself for the pointscoring, because if I rang up talkback radio and they asked me what I was wearing I'd tell them to sod off :-D

And lastly, I thought the Red Sox comment was just a reference to Jack's dad (Christian Shepherd)

will look more at the others tomorrow

copying & pasting (and cleaning up) comments for the 5/25 podcast from lena's transcript blog:

they reference things as happening yesterday, which made me think that the interview with the student was actually aired the day before (on that radio show that we have to assume exists) and he's just replaying parts of it in this podcast. I think he's in such a good mood because something he helped inform the public about caused such a reaction at top levels. I think he's highlighting Widmore for much the same reasons. I think the Collumbian cocain reference is about the theories of US government involvement (or CIA more specifically) in that, and as for Heston... there is the Ten Commandments movie but why mention that specifically... haven't thought about it enough. Maybe he doesn't mention P much because she doesn't have much to do with what he's currently talking about (and/or it's so early on in terms of her hacks there's not much for DJDan to comment on in regards to her).

The comment about Tonya getting paid I think is just a little in-joke. And the moon? Creepy, yes. Why are they developing something with that capability?

The comment about the Widmore building I think is part of the over-all slow/subtle introduction of them into TLE and Lost. Or a means to anchor TLE back to the show in another place.

6/27/2006 9:53 PM  
Blogger Carol said...

06/01 podcast:
Another indication that this is just a portion of a much bigger show. I'd taken the comment about kicking Milty off as another joke, like paying Tonya, playing around and poking fun at people and things. His sellout rant was like justifying the way he has sold-off, like he's a sell-out with a conscience so isn't in league with some things.

Think his comment about his Compass and bombs is just more conspiracy crack-pot talk mixed with sell-out justification.

The rapid weight loss discussion wouldn't be a podcast as such, but part of the larger show we are not privy to as we don't get DJDan live. However, I did just think about the connection between D20/heavy water and weightloss. hmmm

I didn't take the comments about Tonya's body as being anything significant. I took his "Tanya-Disco-Trip-Hop remix" bit to be about if he had truly sold out. But maybe it was a sneaky way to say he isn't acting of his own volition.


Anyway, after I've gone through all of these I wanna deal a bit more with how DJDan ties in with P's hacks, or in this case a podcast about selling-out with a video not of his creation about him being a sellout. That and the question of whether he is being controlled by Hanso.

6/27/2006 10:13 PM  
Blogger Carol said...

06/08 podcast:
The evolution discussion is very interesting considering the blog discussion about DJDan being a hoax.

Blah blah blah. Could be nothing. Could be DJDan quoting, paying homage to Persephone. Could be a connection between them (or the appearance of one...). I'm not sure.

The shark photo does seem to screw with the DJDan timeline, but it was another one of those links between P's hack and DJDan. Which makes me think that the podcasts aren't so much about his favourite bits, but timely (which is amusing considering the timewarp that goes on with this game).

lena, you say it's odd that DJDan knows Lou is on the phone... the producer usually informs the announcer who is on the line, so it doesn't seem odd to me. Putting the threatening caller "back" on I took to being taking him off hold, but it is a little odd. Troll... well he was stirring up trouble. And I take it Dan Lapinsky isn't his real name... LOL

6/27/2006 10:46 PM  
Blogger TEAM Lena said...

6/08
Yah, my point there was that there was more conversation with Lou prior to us hearing what we heard.

I hate how we only get half of the podcast anyways.

Thanks for the help BTW...it is good to get fresh brains on it!

06/14 podcast:
Los Alamos National Laboratory on wiki. Even has DJDan's mushroom/nuclear image on it! Anyway, googling "Los Alamos brain" gets hits about cancer, though nothing in recent times.

The Congo. I wish we knew which Congo he was talking about! On one hand I think it could be the Republic of the Congo as there was a change in government in '92. On the other hand, there is the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which was Zaire at the time and no such political upheaval co-incides with the date, but... well they weren't the cleanest of governments.

The East Asian off-shore thing could be an antenna, given P's clue about such things. I forget how I got onto this, but another suggestion is a space elevator. It is even referenced on lostpedia for this podcast!

as for the nanite/stormcloud... yeah, could be the Monster, despite that theory being thrown out by TPTB, or it could explain the strange rain-out-of-nowhere on the island (if you really want to think of it as a stormcloud).

06/16 podcast:
astral plane

Iceland part of Denmark - DJDan likes throwing in obscure history stuff. From wiki: Iceland was a free state, without a king, until the end of the Sturlungaöld civil war in 1262, when it established a personal union with the Norwegian king with Gamli sáttmáli (English: The Old Covenant). From 1387 Iceland was in practice ruled by Denmark, following the union of the two kingdoms. When that union was dissolved in 1814, through the Treaty of Kiel, which saw Norway entering a union with Sweden, Iceland became a Danish colony. Home rule was granted by the Danish government in 1904 and independence followed in 1918. From 1918 Iceland was in a personal union with Denmark, with foreign relations being carried out by the Danes, as instructed by the Icelandic government until the World War II military occupation of Denmark by Nazi Germany in 1940. Subsequently, Iceland was occupied by the Allies. The Danish king remained the de jure sovereign of the nation until 1944, when the current republic was founded after the 1918 treaty had lapsed.

Bjork - well it was a swan dress actually :-D

Tonya - at face value you can interpret it as she's deliberately playing recordings of her responses (other than the Bjork comment) in an actual or fake huff at DJDan. His comments about revealing her age make me think his show is only weekly, otherwise why would Tonya wait this long to start acting up on him?

anyway, once again the theme of this podcast coincided with the theme of P's hack on the same day. But this podcast had a lot of info that slots in with the other information we were given about Vik. The caller "Tom" seems to be up on DJDan's angle too, because he talks about Mittlewerk like he's running things at Hanso. Did their talk foreshadow the Vik fire? DJDan said "the thing is with autistic savants, that you can never really know what they're actually capable of doing" (then again, and off-topic for this blog, I wonder if Zander started the fire to throw a spanner into Hanso's works). They also talk about giving Tom the "Conspiraspy of the month" title and he doesn't get it!

doh! forgot to go back and expand on astral plane! the term "astral plane" I am familiar with. "astro plane" I am not, though it does seem to be a real thing. "Astral" fits in more with DJDan's other intros. To me anyway :-D

6/28/2006 2:36 AM  
Blogger ZeroDark said...

So I guess Dj Dan is Puerto Rican now? Was I the only one to catch that? His Bio says he grew up in Terra Haute or Macon, but he told P that he grew up on a beach in Puerto Rico. Is this a clue to his identity, a red herring, or just Dj Dan talkin' some BS??

If nothing else, this settles any doubts that DJ Dan is indeed Lost supervising producer Javier Grillo-Marxuach. That accent he had while speaking spanish wasn't perfect, but you can tell he actually speaks spanish, Javier was born in Puerto Rico so it would make sense.

Hey Team lena-wondering if there was an effort underway to arrange DJ Dan's podcasts in cronological order of their events rather than when they were released to us? I would be interested in seeing just how "off" they are as to actual events like the shark picture on his site, and now mentioning Rachel's blog and the GJ song before she posted it there.

just an idea. it's been speculated that Peter Thompson in DJDAN, and that he is being forced to work for Hanso (hence Survivor GUILT), i'm thinking that he's kind of an inside man for the Hanso Foundation to be like a false leader for those who would theorize about THF. To me, it seems like he comes up w/ crazy ideas but the SHUTSDOWN anything that sounds plausible. keep your enemies closer eh...
