What's Aladygma?

j.j. abramsI've had a few requests to look into the Aladygma rumors. /Film found a little bit of info on the possible Cloverfield sequel codenamed Aladygma. Knowing J.J. Abrams and his ability to defy truth seekers with his magical mystery box, Aladygma is probably something different and new.

If anyone is good at anagrams take a pop at "Aladygma." Abrams and Bad Robot are know for their anagrams and obscure references so let me know if anything comes up.

A Google search finds an Aladygma website with the text "Start date 00 | 11 | 22 | 88" and "coming soon next day?" in the bottom right. This site is probably unrelated but who knows with Abrams?

Now, if you spell Aladygma backwards, and who wouldn't, and switch a letter you'll get Amgydala. This is an actual word which is means "One of the basal ganglia in the limbic system of the brain thought to control motivation and emotion. It may also contain the memory of recent events."

Maybe the military finds someone's basal ganglia and probes it for recent events regarding Cloverfield

Not sure. It's definitely something to keep an eye out for.

Malaga is a port-city in southern Spain, which leaves the letters d and y. DY is the periodic table of element symbol for Dysprosium. Don't know how those relate to anything but just thought I would throw it out there

they updated the web site and it now says follow the white space under coming next day

Highlight the text on the aladygma page. A white space shows in the upper left corner. Click it!

And the numbers change...

I think they eventually will change to 11 28 20 08. That's a date!

Easy... alamygda is an anagram of amygdala....

it should be a alien movie of j j abrams. i read it on http://www.free-press-release.com/news/200802/1204306363.html

Melissa said...

also, if you click a space in the top right corner of the page(find it by highlighting the text)... something DIFFERENT shows...

There are two white spaces (follow the white spaces it said) to the left, when clicked it shows http://www.aladygma.com/img/skull-bg.jpg

and to the right when clicked
student thomas | room 211

but right then and there... a new link appears somewhere (i was watching the source code)
http://www.aladygma.com/%20/

which shows the reported change on the numbers

the newspaper under the map has the date september 12, 2001.

Anonymous said...

I did a google image search and that really is the 9/12/2001 front page of the NY Times...."Coming soon the next day"

I'm thinking this may have nothing to do with cloverfield.

Joshinroundhere said...

You want into my mind on this issue?
Welcome.
Notice how the words left uncovered on the paper tend to all point towards something other than the movie and a terrorist attack. NO PLANE is darkened and left bare to read EAX and Evil is plainly visible.
EAX was removed from the Governmental Index. Wierd? The paper is dated september 12th, 2001, which explains the coming soon tomorrow. The map is of the sewers of NYC. Directly beneath the Embassy Hotel, and the room 211 of the Embassy Hotel, using the 211 from the picture was a room overlooking, yes, you guessed it, both the statue of liberty AND where the trade center wouldve been. A bloody footprint on the map. Or. Is it a half saucer shape?
Who's to say?
And just to let you know, a real UFO buff knows that 00112288 is a codename for an alien research program in the government.
Could there be aliens?
Or is it a movie advertisement?
It could be Viral Advertisement.
But it would be DAMN good, something I'd think of it was.

when you click on the first white space and then highlight the page, there is some text in the upper left hand corner of the page. it's backwards and in german or some similar language.

forwards: thomas ist ein lügner

not sure what it means, but it's interesting to say the least.

thomas ist ein lügner.

i think it means thomas is a liar.

there is a new link if u look under the t in follow the white spaces there is a naked man and woman and then it changes to some monster looking thing

milo said...

if it is a viral stadegy it has got to be related to Fox because of the picture of the fetal creature from Alien on the aladygma.com website. the only known projects out there don't relate to jj abrams. and the style is x-file-like(Fox) abrams is with paramount on movies but Fox with TV. Abrams has a new TV show called Fringe (x file in nature) coming out 2008 with no release date listed. something to ponder.

If you do a CNTL-A or Apple-A on the homepage, it will show you hidden links. Clicking one brigs up a map with an address and a bloody shoeprint on it.

As it happens, 102 North End Avenue is the Embassy Suites Hotel in Manhattan. It also happens to be a block away from Ground Zero.

Interesting...

I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with Cloverfield. But the people over at the Cloverfieldnews.com forum have started talking a lot about it.

I think the smart money says that although Cloverfield is due on DVD pretty soon, Aladygma is actually the viral setup campaign for JJ's new "Fringe" project.

VeNoM5389 said...

If you click the link in the upper right hand corner it changes the numbers to 211/2008. Knowing the Cloverfield movie was based on a secret file you could say it was military affiliated. In the military they reverse day and month, so is it possible they are talking about a release date of November 2, 2008? ... just a suggestion.

On thomas' blog, he has a picture if you look closey. its the bottom one btw, you can see the same diagram of the pioneer plague ..... from the website....

DING..

so if this whole thing is real.
then we can probably sy tht he has something to do with the webbersitter :P

Stephanie said...

So, has anyone gone to thewhitespaces.com? You have to ctrl A again, like on aladygma.com but there is a riddle under a blank and a button that says "guess". The answer is Tomorrow, then you get to another page thats more of a math problem. I've solved for all the letters, but I dont understand what it wants in the blank where you "guess". what am I guessing!? Im stuck. Any ideas?

Everybody, this has everything to do with cloverfield... If you go to aladygmacloverfield-unitedworld.com and read EVERYTHING, and go through a bunch of hyperlinks, you can find a ton of stuff. It has way to much work into it to just be from fans...

ALADYGMA...? COULD BE A SEQUAL, but everyone is really jumpy when a new word or website pops up.Cool thing is that this fact goes to show what a good idea Cloverfield was. "WHEN A FILM, A FAKED REALITY BURNED ONTO CELLULOID CAN GET PEOPLE TALKING THIS MUCH AND MAKE EVERY ODD SOUNDING THING GET SO MUCH ATTENTION, THAT IS A SUCCESS." Cloverfield can't stand on it's own forever, there will have to be answers.If they make a Clover 2 and anyone from the production team reads this, J.J. you have got a great thing going here, but a film is a film, please just come out and say it when your gonna make it please.Please no more crazy cameras and character development.Just Clover, and other monsters if you would like to.You've got to get him out into the open.Give us Carnage, give us Chaos, Give us Cloverfield 2...vs. the Military. Done Normal, Cloverfield 2 could be the greatest monster movie in history. Godzilla has ruled long enough, let's show em' what a true Monster film looks like... through steady cams.

You know if you spell aladygma backwards it closely resembles amygdala, well on the wikipedia page for amygdala, there is a picture of the location of it (he first picture on the left). To me, it looks like the Cloverfield monster face (the red bits are the eyes!).

What is Cloverfield?

Welcome to 1-18-08 Project Cloverfield Blog.

Cloverfield is the J.J. Abrams (Lost, Alias) produced monster flick directed by Matt Reeves. Get caught up on all the Cloverfield news including the viral world of Tagruato, TIDOwave, and Slusho!? And now Aladygma?

However, I love viral campaigns. Cloverfield taught me the fun of being involved with the viral world of movies and TV. That's why I'd like to branch out this site to cover some of the major viral campaigns as they are developing. Feel free to drop me a line or tip on any you find interesting.

Welcome to Cloverfield

Very few facts emerged from the viral campaign that was Cloverfield. It all started after a short, teaser trailer for Cloverfield appeared with the Transformers movie in early July of 2007. Since then, speculation surrounded what the title of the movie would be (Monstrous, Overnight, etc...) and what the monster really is and why it is tearing up New York City.

A few pictures and covert videos from the film showed up online and there were only a few core facts we knew of including the poster, the teaser trailer, and a few websites at 1-18-08, Tagruato Corp, and Slusho .

In November, the official full-length Cloverfield trailer was released that helped open up the story as well as cement the "Cloverfield" name for the movie. A short glimpse of the Cloverfield Monster was seen but for most people they still had little or no clue as to what it was.

The movie centered around five young New Yorkers throwing their friend a going-away party the night that a monster the size of a skyscraper descends upon the city. Told from the point of view of their video camera, the film is a document of their attempt to survive the most surreal, horrifying event of their lives. Cloverfield opened the weekend of 1-18-08 and set box office records for a movie in January with a monster take of over $40M. Continue to check back here for updates on the mystery and viral campaigns of Cloverfield.

Get Started with the Cloverfield Viral Marketing

If you're new to the Cloverfield viral world than let's get started. First off, for the beginners let's look at what we're talking about.

What does viral marketing mean? Click here.

1-18-08.com Updates with pictures randomly. Each picture is layered onto of the previous update and all can be dragged and moved around the screen. Click and hold the mouse to 'grab' an image and move it around. While holding the image, shake it back and forth quickly and it will flip over. Some images have writing on the back.

Slusho This is the Japanese frozen drink made from a secret ingredient gathered from the bottom of the ocean. Slusho gives you a kick and makes you extremely happy. Prior to 1-18-08 Slusho was not sold in the US. However, recent FDA approval gave Slusho clearance to come to the states. Rob Hawkins, the lead character, was recently promoted to vice-president of Slusho and was on his way to Japan the night of the attack. Slusho is owned by the Tagruato Corp. of Japan. Slusho also first made an appearance on J.J. Abrams Alias during a scene where characters buy the drink at a store.

Tagruato This ficticious Japanese company is the parent company of Slusho as well as the Yoshida Medical Research, Bold Futura, and ParafFUN! Wax Distributors. Besides drilling the oceans for Slusho ingredients, Tagruato builds everything from space satellites to medical gear.

T.I.D.O wave An activist group set out to bring to light all the damage Tagruato has done to the envirnoment.

Jamie and Teddy A minor character from the movie, Jamie popped up on a 1-18-08.com picture and the MySpace profiles for the movies characters before getting famous for her "Jamie and Teddy" website. The site is comprised of video journals from Jamie. The site is password protected but can be accessed by the password "jllovesth"
