      Yesterday, I received a call from my pal and yours, @meghanmayhem. I could tell that strange things were afoot at the Circle K, because she was all business and needed to meet with me in person ASAP. As I was working from home, she was kind enough to drive all of the way down to the South Bay.

      It turns out that The Resistance has noticed my shit-stirring and affinity for fucking shit up and have decided to reach out to me. Meghan handed me an envelope with a pre-paid burner phone and a note embossed with the BOS logo and instructions not to talk about the delivery or phone until I received a call. It said that once I receive a call that I am to IMMEDIATELY post the instructions that I receive from the call on the forums. I am also to keep this phone charged and be ready to answer at any and all times. I must be ready to post 24/7. There can be no delay.

      Guess who just got a call?

      The voice on the other line was a cordial yet stern, femme, British-accented text-to-speech bot. Reminded me a little of Missy from Doctor Who, and certainly the anti-@joycecarlberg.

      I am to keep the Resistance phone fully charged for the next 4 days. Sometime during this timeframe, I can expect to receive an important call. As stated in the note, I am to answer the phone immediately and be ready for whatever might be coming my way, including making the requisite forum posts.

      Looks like my boots are back on the pavement. Fuck yer cult. Let’s get weird. #burnitdown

      Meghan gets burner phone, hands off a (different?) burner phone. The resistance seems like fun.

      @nothenrygale That is interesting. Would make sense since it’s Stacey’s baby, maybe it’ll be playing a bigger leading role in the resistance? The resistance has already been able to hack into the forums, maybe they can hack into OSDM’s personal systems with MyChild later on.

      Oh, how absolutely lovely, your little gang of misfits now has a burner cell phone. Where have I heard that before? I just can not seem to remember. What is next dear?  A clandestine meeting? Oh yes, I guess that is how you got the phone in the first place isn’t it love?  How delightfully original! I can completely see why you would be so absolutely enamored!

      If you would like to start a so-called resistance maybe you should “resist” doing that which others have done before you.  Or, I suppose, you could just get in the long line of not-so original things that appear to be popping up here, there and everywhere!    

      Might I make a few suggestions to really get the common folk excited?  Perhaps, one could talk about salvation, finding the real answers, a touch of mysticism, a bit of old fashioned spookiness, oh and a bit of paranoia always makes the medicine go down!

      In fact, why not just do as the others and duplicate most of my people’s methodologies from the last year or so?  Why try something interesting and new when you can simply hop in a figurative time machine and relive the glory be of the past in less exciting, more watered-down versions?

      Delightful!  

      “Golly-gee Bill, It is new but it’s also something I completely expect and, like, totally understand where it is going. It frees my simple American mind from haffin’ ta think too hard.”

      Right? That is the thinking?  Why have a steak when the microwave oven chicken fingers from the Applebee’s restaurant chain are so readily accessible?  

      I am.  I am sorry, this is the one single thing that does in fact get under my skin.

      We all just need to remember that, as they say, imitation is the most sincere form of…  It is just that I feel positively fucked cross-eyed by all of this flattery everywhere I turn.

      Oh dear, such language.  

      Okay, I am going to stop while I might still be a little ahead and go ahead and offer you a choice @kipsie.  You can bandwagon with your Scooby Doo Mystery Team that appears to ape the conventions we have all seen before OR.

      You can give me that phone and I promise, I will make it worth your while.  

      You have one hour or until I get through this half pint of Chunky Monkey to decide.  Do so publicly rather than in the shadows like the cockroaches of our little “resistance”.  Good luck to you.

      Great point, @joycecarlberg. Let’s see how fast this thing can go.

      The phone is mine. If you want it so bad, feel free to reach into my bra and grab it. You know where to find me.

      Resistance may be on the path of righteousness but it’s definitely heading towards the land of cotton candy instead of fun hellfire.

      Hope we start taking more risks in the future. This could have been a fun charcoal path to go down.

      You’d have better luck demanding compliance from a gust of wind than you would @kipsie. My girl would never turn on her people, nor does she respond positively to weak demands from someone clearly worried. She and I have been down this path before. Spoilers? It doesn’t work out well for you.

      Oh, and fun side note! You’re right. The burner phone tactic does sound familiar. Maybe it reminds me of that time when even the High Prince in the castle was sick of your people’s shit and went rogue. Tisk.

      Yeah, god forbid someone use an effective and proven technique to communicate out of band in a manner that’s difficult to track. You must be so frustrated. You think all that jolly hides the stench of your fear? What worries you more, the imitation, or the fact that there’s something you don’t know? Who do you think you picked up that technique from? Are you Al Gore, did you invent the Internet too?

      If you would like to start a so-called resistance maybe you should “resist” doing that which others have done before you. Or, I suppose, you could just get in the long line of not-so original things that appear to be popping up here, there and everywhere!

      You make an excellent point, Joyce. Stay tuned. I guarantee you’ll see something interesting.

      In fact, why not just do as the others and duplicate most of my people’s methodologies from the last year or so? Why try something interesting and new when you can simply hop in a figurative time machine and relive the glory be of the past in less exciting, more watered-down versions?

      The funny thing about technology, Joyce, is that it’s amoral, it doesn’t really care if you use it for good, or evil. You want to use a weapon against us, and then cry foul when the same weapon is used against you? Grow the fuck up. Are you even taking this seriously? For a cult that’s been around for thousands of years,
      you seem to have a pretty naive point of view. I’d like to think you’re just having an off day, and that you’ll be more intimidating tomorrow. It’s almost like you’re new at this.

      Delightful!

      Yes, it is, isn’t it?

      “Golly-gee Bill, It is new but it’s also something I completely expect and, like, totally understand where it is going. It frees my simple American mind from haffin’ ta think too hard.”

      Right? That is the thinking? Why have a steak when the microwave oven chicken fingers from the Applebee’s restaurant chain are so readily accessible?

      Are you supposed to be the steak in this analogy? Cuz pretty much everything I’ve seen outta you so far has been reprocessed TV-dinner bullshit.

      I am. I am sorry, this is the one single thing that does in fact get under my skin.

      You better get yourself a coping mechanism, because you ain’t seen nothing yet.

      We all just need to remember that, as they say, imitation is the most sincere form of… It is just that I feel positively fucked cross-eyed by all of this flattery everywhere I turn.

      You can’t claim credit for Tradecraft, Joyce. Don’t be silly.

      Okay, I am going to stop while I might still be a little ahead and go ahead and offer you a choice @kipsie. You can bandwagon with your Scooby Doo Mystery Team that appears to ape the conventions we have all seen before OR.

      You can give me that phone and I promise, I will make it worth your while.

      You want that phone pretty bad, don’t you? Does that phone scare you, Joyce? You’ll make it worth her while? What’s your offer? Let’s talk business, Joyce. What’s that phone worth to you? A lot? It sounds like this phone is pretty valuable to you, like maybe it’s pretty important that you get your hands on it. What happens if you fail in your mission, Joyce? Will you be in trouble?

      You have one hour or until I get through this half pint of Chunky Monkey to decide. Do so publicly rather than in the shadows like the cockroaches of our little “resistance”. Good luck to you.

      Naah, you get way more work done in the shadows. You love your simulations, and your computer analysis. The thing about computers, is that they’re not really great at original thought, and they’re highly susceptible to misinformation. Your entire organization is driven by data. If you don’t have useful data, what exactly do you have? You know what they say, Joyce. Garbage in, Garbage out. Computers are great, but trust me, they are noooooo match for human ingenuity. You’re afraid of something you can’t see coming. You’re more vulnerable than you realize.

      How does that uncertainty make you feel, Joyce? Tell us about it.

Hmmmmmm quite the lengthy post for such a silly Scooby Doo Mystery Team. I’d say it sounds like you know deep down they are much more capable of becoming more than just a second season attempt. Seems to me they’re about to blow you out of the water and you’re very aware

      If the resistance is just a Scooby Doo gang, why does anyone of any real power need the phone. If they’re (the resistance) is all just fucks, surely nothing, or any connections they have, are of any consequence to the powers that be, right? It’s all just delaying the inevitable? Or, or, the power is just a masquerade and maybe the cockroaches are something to be worried about?

      And I’m going to take a stance right here, right now:

      One of many things here I agree with. Not only does it suck, but who eats half a pint of it in one sitting? Probably the same kind of person that thinks a foot wide Fluffernutter is good end to a delicious tapas meal.

      The Resistance has gotten right up Joyce’s nose.

      The most dangerous mistake one can make is assuming that those you’re opposed to share your world view and goals.


      @joycecarlberg
      shaking in her boots? If she sees The Resistance as the substantive threat it wants to be, then sure, I suppose that read holds. But on the other hand, if she’s just trying to do her job – keeping people engaged with The Experience, and stirring up as many emotional responses as possible along the way – then her reply becomes the eye-rolling, vaguely exhausted dare others of us are reading it as.

      Either way, the end result is people are fired up, responding, and engaging on social media. That’s a win for @joycecarlberg.

      Not trolling here, but trying to point out an important point of differentiation. The Resistance may want to take down OSDM, but Joyce wants to keep the community active and involved. Those goals are not necessarily in opposition to one another.

      It’s not just @winstonsmith who’s still around here. We all are still kicking around with this…one way or another, @joycecarlberg’s goal is to make sure we remain engaging with whatever experience the ODSM has in store for us. In that regard, she’s kind of already won.

      For her to ‘lose’ would mean for there to be no activity here, no input from anyone. Basically, we’d have to stop doing this. And I’m doubtful any of us are going to walk away. We’re all in this for the long haul-and Joyce knows that. All she has to do is make sure we’re strapped in and not going anywhere else before the ride starts.

      Well said, @mumumusings. And isn’t it fascinating that the appearance of The Resistance, and the BOS reach-out, also have the side-effect of serving that very same goal?

      It’s enough to make you think there’s something funny going on.

      @bcbishop If I remember correctly, Michelle revealed that the BOS was originally created by the ODSM as a group to catch defectors from the OOA. The Resistance this time could be serving the same purpose-those that want to fight the system now have an ‘outlet’ by which they can, but it’s not a perfect one.

      Here’s a thought:

      @joycecarlberg
      you are just as much a guinea pig for the OSDM to collect emotions as we are… Do you really think that they bestowed upon you the role of solely manipulating and retrieving emotions by getting us riled up without thinking they can’t get the same affect out of you? It seems to be playing in their favor quite well, as you are releasing some intriguing emotions. When you work for people who are known for lying, corruption, and manipulation, you are naive to think that you are spared from also being used.

      @shankfx22 If that were the case, I assume Joyce is well aware that she’s as much a part of the data collection as we are.

      Or as @shaun suggests @joycecarlberg’s latest post is an act. Every time she posts she generates incredibly intense reactions. We’ve seen shock, anger, gloating, devotion, and even more. Almost as if each post is meant to tap into something specific. They keep gathering that data and we keep winding the clock.

      I think Joyce said it best in this post when she said “The resistance? The resistance to what? Having a good time? To fun?”. Never mind that she also threatened to curb stomp us if we misbehaved..

      Is it possible we’re getting played by both sides right now? Can @joycecarlberg be the leader of The Resistance? They wouldn’t do that to us would they?

      I’ll throw some “Freedom, Beauty, Truth & Love” out there and see if The Resistance agrees.

      @blondie Perhaps. Then again, maybe I’m missing something, but has Stacey or anyone else associated with the Resistance actually stated specifically what they hope to accomplish, other than “blowing this thing wide open”, etc.?

      I’m not exactly a fan of the OSDM’s goals and tactics. But I’m also not yet 100% convinced that the Resistance has our best interests in mind, either.
