Do you remember that song?
It was by a band called Rockwell in the early 80’s. If you ever watched the video, it was a little creepy. I remember after watching it I got a little freaked out and kept thinking there was something in the closet watching me. (Give me a break I was 5!)
Anyway, last week after writing about “Rubicon”, I started thinking about conspiracy theories or just the fact that there is an agency whose job it is to search for patterns or hidden messages in order to discover secret plots against the country. Just last month in the news there was a story about a Russian Spy Ring being arrested after a multi-year investigation discovered that they “allegedly used steganography, hiding secretive data in an image, and radiograms, bursts of data sent by a radio transmitter that resemble the sound of Morse code, as part of their secret communications with the Russian government.” (From ABC News).
I have to admit that after watching the pilot episode last week I’ve been looking at the newspaper in a whole new light. For instance, looking at each of the first letters of each line in a story to see if they create words or sentences. Or looking for hidden pictures within advertisements.
You’ll be happy to know that as of yet I have not discovered anything. Although, I’m by no means a professional at it so I could be missing something. :S
