November 11th is the thirty-second episode of TribeTwelve, and the 32nd video of season 1. It was uploaded on January 13th, 2012.
This footage was taken on the nights of November 10th, 11th, and 19th of 2011. It took me a long while to recover this footage, which was very distorted on my camera and had to be captured multiple times before it come out clearly. There is previous footage of before I left my house to go to the hotel on the 10th, but it was nearly completely static. I'm still trying to recover that footage, so until I can recover it, I'm uploading all of the latter footage that I have captured clearly for the time being in this video.
Note: In the beginning of the video, when I said she I was referring to Mary Asher referring to the phone call I received from her before I left. Kevin is my friend who helped me translate Karl's German and is the person who is pictured at 5:00. I'm also inclined to believe that the guy with the pinhole eyes is called "Firebrand" due to the hidden last frame.
[Static occurs for a few seconds before cutting to a clip of Noah driving. During this clip, the video and audio cut out, skip and distort frequently.]
Noah: [Unintelligible.]...again. Going back to the hotel. Fucking shit hit the fan again. [Sighs.] I don't understand any of this. Why now? Of all fucking times, why now? She told me that I-- [Clipping.] --stop... what the fuck does that mean? What should I...? This is the only thing I can do. There's nothing else I can do... If she tried to help me in the past, why wait-- [Clipping.] --now, to tell me? "Don't make the same mistakes I did," she said. That... thing, that... tall thing has been stalking me since I was young. How does she know? Huh? The fuck does she know? She knew about the journal, she knew about my dreams, she knew-- she knew about this Observer fuck... what's her goddamn secret?! I don't-- I don't fucking get any of this, I'm just going back to the hotel... because my house is definitely not safe. And I thought I was not safe during Halloween. No, it's not safe now, it is definitely not safe now. I'm just-- I-I can't-- I can't take this shit anymore. [Laughs nervously.] I-I need to get away. This is still the only hotel I can afford, I-- I actually... Knowing that this would happen, I pre-booked the room, the same room, actually. And I'm gonna stay there for... I don't know how long. I'm not gonna leave the room, I'm just gonna stay, and I'm gonna ride this out. I... I gotta ride this one out. I'll stay there for... a week or two if I have to.
[The screen suddenly becomes distorted. White text appears, reading "IF YOU SAY SO". At the same time, a laugh can be heard. Noah continues driving toward the hotel, and then parks the car. He looks out of the window to his left before looking back toward the camera.]
Noah: I-I don't know if I can solve any of this, but... The fact that... she called me today, and the fact that... she's been telling me that this has been happening all my life, and she knows this somehow... It's really fucking with my mind... something awful. So... [Laughs nervously.] --either this is all a fucking cosmic joke... or, maybe I--
[Slight visual distortion and audio distortion start happening.]
Noah: -- am insane. Oh, my god.
[Noah covers his face with his hands, laughing. As his left arm passes by the window, the Administrator appears, standing in the parking lot in the background. Noah then lowers his arms, and the Administrator disappears. Noah then grabs the camera as the distortion intensifies. Cut to black.]
[Cut back to the inside of Noah's hotel room. It is currently nighttime, and the camera has a night-vision filter turned on. The camera is pointed at Noah's bed. Noah is standing in front of the camera]
Noah: --And, uh, let me set the clock so it's correct.
[Noah takes out his cell phone and presses a few buttons as he sets a clock. After a few seconds, he puts the cell phone behind the camera and looks at the camera, before walking back and getting into his bed.]
[The footage then speeds up, as Noah tosses and turns in bed. After the footage returns to normal speed, distortion starts occurring. The camera footage begins to constantly move upward, as the Observer stands up from the counter next to Noah's bed. He leans over Noah and touches Noah's face. He then looks at Noah for several seconds, as he backs away toward the counter.]
[A clicking noise, similar to a light switch, can be heard several times. The distortion changes intensity several times. The person disappears, with the text "YOU ARE RIPE" appearing on-screen for an instant. The figure then disappears, and the distortion cuts out a few seconds later.]
[Distortion returns a few seconds after cutting out, and the distortion continuously intensifies until the screen is completely black. After that, static occurs for several seconds and, through the static, a simple image of the Administrator, with its arms outstretched, appears, along with the text "BOARDWALK".]
[After a few more seconds a static, Kevin appears in the corner of an unknown room. He is talking, but the audio is replaced by a reversed and distorted song. For a brief moment, Kevin can be seen holding notecards, including one that says "COMPENSATE". Kevin moves these cards off-camera, and seems to rearrange the cards.]
[Kevin holds up the pile of notecards again. The card on top now reads "INEVITABLE". He sets them somewhere off-camera, before looking above the camera, still talking. He then scratches his chin, and a watch on Kevin's wrist is visible. He then holds up a notecard that reads "KEVIN". Kevin then looks at the notecard, as the screen becomes heavily distorted. For a split-second, the card suddenly changes to read "ONE OF US", with the intersecting eyes symbol on it. The camera cuts to Noah's hotel room, and the distortion stops.]
[The footage speeds up again, and Noah tosses and turns even more. Eventually the speed of the camera returns back to normal. The distortion returns, frames dropping as Noah is dragged out of bed, which wakes him up. Startled, Noah falls off the bed onto the floor. The distortion intensifies.]
Noah: What the f--
[Noah gets up from the floor and grabs the camera, as the distortion fades away.]
Noah: Who's there? I fucking saw you! I fucking saw you!
[Noah looks around the hotel room.]
Noah: I saw those damn glasses!
[Noah walks over to the bathroom. He turns off the night-vision filter and turns on the light.]
Noah: Why were you pulling me off the bed? Huh? Asshole! Quit hiding and show yourself for once, you fucking coward!
[Visual and audio distortion occur. Noah turns away from his bed and faces toward the door. The door then opens, revealing a figure standing in the doorway, which causes the distortion to intensify even more. The figure is almost completely black, except for white dots for his eyes and a thin smile. This figure is Firebrand.]
[In response to seeing this figure, Noah shouts in fear and falls backward onto the floor. The video lags, and the camera falls onto the ground facing Noah's bed. Noah is on the floor trying to move away from the door.]
Noah: No, no! It can't be! No! No! It can't be! Th-that's, that's, that's impossible...
[Noah is pulled backwards, screaming. The Observer's face then appears under the bed, smiling. As the distortion intensifies, the text "GOT YOU" can be seen for an instant. Cut to black. A black-and-white video fades into view.]
[Note: Given that this is a "Collective" video, there are no spoken words to transcribe; below is the text that appears in the video in chronological order.]
[Noah is shown unconscious. He open his eyes.]
[Noah then looks to the left of the camera, then to the right of the camera. A hand then touches Noah's face, which Noah looks at in fear.]
[Fade to black.]
LET US TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT YOU
[A black-and-white video of a giant eye staring at Noah fades into view. Fade to black.]
[Fade to video of someone dissecting a brain. The person dissecting the brain pulls the brain's hemispheres apart, and the intersecting eyes symbol appears inside them. Fade to black.]
[Fade to video of someone chopping up meat.]
[Fade to black. Fade to video taken from an airplane window.]
[As the airplane takes off, the camera appears to turn away from the window, toward the Observer's face.]
[The dot of the question mark is replaced with the intersecting eyes symbol. Fade to black. Fade to slow-motion video of a clock being smashed by a hammer.]
YOUR TIME APPROACHES
[Fade to black. Fade to video of a hand writing.]
YOU ARE HIGH ON OUR LIST
[Fade to black, before fading to a video of a table. As the camera pans across it, a piece of paper that reads "NOAH MAXWELL" is on the table, along with a pair of glasses, a briefcase, a pen, and several other pieces of paper. The person filming grabs the "NOAH MAXWELL" paper and starts crushing it.]
AND YOU ALWAYS WERE
[Fade to black. Fade to a shot of Milo.]
THE ASHERS KNEW
[Milo shakes his head and begins to smile, covering his face with his hands. Fade to black. Fade to a shot on a plane, where Firebrand is standing at the opposite end.]
YOU MUST ASSUME YOUR INHERITANCE
[Fade to black. Video of a child holding a teddy bear, walking toward the camera.]
REMEMBER OUR VISITS?
[Fade to white, before fading to a video of two children, running from the person filming.]
[Video of a knife sliding across a table. Fade to white.]
IF YOU INTEND TO KILL ME
[Fade to a video of an arrow drawn onto a road.]
IT IS REQUIRED THAT
YOU HEED OUR DEMANDS
[Fade to black.]
WHEN YOU AWAKE
[Fade to a video of an eye. The camera zooms into the eye in an infinite loop, before flying into the the pupil of the eye. Then, fade to video of the plane, seen from one of the seats. On a TV screen, the Observer can be seen.]
YOU WILL DO
[A man sits down in the seat and, as he passes in front of the screen, all the TV screens begin to show the intersecting eyes symbol.]
AS WE SAY
[Fade to black. Fade to a video showing a large amount of writhing tentacles.]
LEST YOU WISH TO ANGER US FURTHER
[Fade to black. A video of a rose blooming plays.]
[There is an eye in the center of the rose once it blooms. Fade to white.]
[Fade to video of a hand holding a gun.]
I HAVE A GUN
AND I DON'T THINK YOU DO
[Fade to black.]
WE EAGERLY AWAIT YOUR SUBMISSION
[Fade to a video of an ammunition box sitting on a rug. The camera moves in a circle around it. Fade to white. Fade to the Observer leaning in front of the camera.]
[Fade to black. Fade to video of the inside of Noah's hotel room. Noah is on the floor, Firebrand is standing near the entrance to the room, and the cameraman is standing behind Noah.]
WE HOPE THAT YOU LIKE YOUR BIRTHDAY PRESENT
[Fade to black.]
[Fade to video of the Observer, writing on Noah's stomach.]
IT WAS FUN TO MAKE
[Fade to black.]
[Fade to the Observer, in front of the camera.]
WE WANT YOU TO WAKE UP
[The Observer removes his glasses, revealing his eyes to be pure white with small black pupils. The camera suddenly zooms in on his eyes.]
[The Collective video ends here.]
[Static occurs, and fades in to an extremely distorted view of Noah lying on the floor of his hotel room, in what seems to be the same place as before. Noah coughs several times as he gets up. He grabs the camera and enters the bathroom, where he coughs up blood into the sink.]
Noah: Oh fuck...
[Noah points the camera at the mirror, showing that his shirt has been removed. The words "HAPPY BIRTHDAY NOAH" are written on his stomach in black charcoal. Noah moves his hair out of the way to reveal an intersecting eyes symbol drawn on his forehead.]
Noah: Oh fuck... Oh fuck! Oh... Jesus Christ!
[Noah continues coughing. Noah wets his hands and rubs the moisture over his forehead and stomach, which somewhat blurs the writing.]
Noah: Get off me! Fuck!
[Cut to black. A black-and-white image of Firebrand appears, with the text "FIREBRAND REMEMBERS", accompanied by a loud screeching noise.]
- This video marks the first in-person appearance of Firebrand in TribeTwelve.
- The audio in the background of Kevin's segment of the video is the song "You May Be Right" by Billy Joel, slowed down and reversed. The verse is "But it just might be a lunatic you're looking for."
- The figure in the white jacket is believed to be the Observer, based on the footage seen in "HAPPYBIRTHDAY".
- The audio in the background of the Observer's video is a slowed-down, reversed version of the chorus of the song "Eye in the Sky" by The Alan Parsons Project:
I am the eye in the sky
Looking at you
I can read your mind
I am the maker of rules
Dealing with fools
I can cheat you blind
And I don't need to see any more
To know that
I can read your mind, I can read your mind
- November 11th = 11/11 1+1+1+1 = 4; an Asian superstition regarding Death.
- The box on the carpet is likely the ammunition box seen in "DEATHTRAPEXODUS".
