One-Eighteen-Oh-Eight Retires

For updated blog posts, please visit

In light of recent developments in my personal life and within the game, I’m calling it quits. I will, however, continue following the progression of all things Cloverfield at the forums of Unfiction. So if you’d like to chat, I’ll be there.

I believe Rob said it best.

I’m done.

You know how you can get totally absorbed with something, and because you are so focused on that one thing, you miss out on other opportunities? I now realize that's what has been happening here. Or maybe I've known it all along and have been living in denial, clinging to that empty hope that things were going to get better.

Cloverfield TV Commercial #3 has the exclusive third Cloverfield TV commercial. There is no new footage shown, however, the explosion seen from Rob's rooftop appears to have some new CGI.

Dennis at Cloverfield Clues has been kind enough to upload each of the commercials to YouTube.

Rob's Myspace Page Updated

Rob has recently updated his MySpace page with a new blog entry. Sounds like he's feeling down and out about a certain relationship. He's on a job search now. I hear Japan has a booming job market. Maybe he should look there.

I’m done

It's time for a change. I'm officially launching into a full-blown job hunt. I've been putting the feelers out for the past few weeks, but now it has become abundantly clear to me that I need to move on and try something else. I've put in a lot of time and effort only to be continuously misinterpreted or altogether unnoticed. I'm not opposed to leaving New York, if that's what it takes. Don't get me wrong -- I love this city. But there are certain elements that I need to get away from before I lose my mind. I'm sick of being the overlooked guy. Sick of being pigeonholed as one thing, when if you would just give me a chance, I know I can be so much more.

You know how you can get totally absorbed with something, and because you are so focused on that one thing, you miss out on other opportunities? I now realize that's what has been happening here. Or maybe I've known it all along and have been living in denial, clinging to that empty hope that things were going to get better. That certain things were meant to happen. Well, whether those things were meant to happen or not, they didn't. Not for me, at least.

Sometimes, you need to give up.
3:48 PM - 7 Comments - 16 Kudos

All of Rob's friends have sent him a message to cheer him up. I do find the timestamps to be a bit comical. Also, a random comment from Ron [1-18-08] has filtered through.

Lil: I know you're hurting, hon. I just don't want you to do anything for the wrong reasons!

Hawk: Jeez, someone needs to get laid.

HUD: Dude you can't leave me! Who's gonna shave my back?!
Wednesday, December 19, 2007 at 4:04 PM
LenaDia: About time. And yes, you have been living in denial.
Wednesday, December 19, 2007 at 4:04 PM
Ron [1-18-08]: I'm sorry to see you lose hope, Rob. Unfortunately for us, sometimes you just can't win, no matter how hard you try or how much effort you put in. Sometimes things just fall apart.
I wish you luck in the job hunt. May you find that one "thing" that seems to have eluded you for so long.

Jamie: Aw Robby! I'm sorry, babe, I know how you're feeling. Maybe we should get together and cheer each other up...
Wednesday, December 19, 2007 at 4:05 PM
Beth: Rob I had no idea you were in such a funk! Call me, we'll talk about it. We're friends, right?

Cloverfield NYC Subway Poster

The image isn't anything new, but the location sure is. Cloverfield advertising has gone underground. My friend Chris has e-mailed me with the above picture taken from the Spring Street subway station in SOHO Manhattan.

I wonder if Spring Street is the station Rob and his friends take to escape the monster? It's fairly close to Rob and HUD's apartment and where the SOL's head lands. I guess we'll see...


MovieWeb Exclusive: Cloverfield Commercial

Paramount Pictures have provided MovieWeb with an exclusive first look at the next Cloverfield TV commercial. The video contains a few never-before seen scenes from the upcoming film, and is a much better quality (and different) than the commercial previously seen.

In case you can't view the video, here's a transcript. There are a couple of new scenes, so I've inserted screencaps of those when relevent. Otherwise, you've probably already seen the rest.

[Arial view of NY Harbor]
Rob: Seven hours ago, someTHING attacked the city.
Partymembers: What was that noise?
Woman on the street: What is it? Is it coming this way!?
Matt Reeves: I saw it! It's alive! It's huge!
Rob: Hello? Beth? Where are you?
[New scene of Rob, Lil, Beth? and (HUD behind the camera?) on a rooftop. This is where the fighter jets bombing the city was filmed.]
Soldier on Loud Speaker: This is a mandatory evacuation!
Rob to Soldier: We're going to go after her. If you want to stop me, then you're going to have to shoot me.
Soldier [his face isn't blurred now]: There's nothing we can do for you!
[New scene of Rob, Lil, and (HUD behind the camera?) on the street]
Rob to Lil: Stay here, okay? I'll go.
Lil: I'm coming with you.
Crowd on the street: Run, Run, Run! (Screams) Oh my God! Oh my God!
Announcer: Cloverfield...PG-13...January 18th has finally added a blog entry about "the event." Although, it's not exactly what I would have thought they'd post. There is no post title, and it seems like this person is new to posting. Apparently, something has gone wrong.

I don’t know what to say. They told me to post here. I’ve never done this before.

Um…..things are not going as planned. There has been a problem with the “event”. Please contact me if you have any information on Randy or the others. I’m the only one here right now. Backup desperately needed.

I wonder if this means Randy is with Teddy on the Chuai station, and the event was supposed to take place there...

Tagruato Whistleblower Memo #2

Dennis has received a new memo from "The Whistle Blower", which was sent by e-mail using the Tagruato e-mail address: Dennis had previously e-mailed them asking about the ParafFun recall.

The memo itself is written in Japanese, but another hand-written message reads:

Americans, No Oil Here! They must have known before they built! - The Whistle Blower

UPDATE: Kosmopol from Unfiction has provided a translation. The document is a financial statement for the third quarter of 2007, with a table of the profits from each drilling station. Conspicuously, missing from the list is the Chuai station.

Cloverfield TV Advertisement

Cloverfield advertising has finally hit the small screen. So far there are only a couple low quality versions available on YouTube, but for now, they'll have to do. This one seems to be the better of the two.

Here's the transcript if you can't view videos.

Announcer: Some Thing...Has Found Us
Random Citizen: Oh my God! Oh my...!
Lily: What is that?
Announcer: On January 18th
Hawk: You don't know what we saw! The point is, it's still here.
Announcer: Once you see it, nothing will be the same
Lily: Do you know what that thing is?
Soldier: Whatever it is, it's winning
Announcer: From producer JJ Abrams
Woman: Bite! We've got a bite!
Rob: Where are you taking her?
Woman: [Screams]

Sci Fi Magazine Cloverfield Article

The February issue of Sci Fi Magazine has another interview with Bryan Burk, producer of Cloverfield. If you're not able to get your hands on a copy of the magazine just yet, Sci Fi Wire, the magazine's online counterpart, has created two smaller clips of the article. Check those out here and here.

"We've only had two internal screenings, and one was for a group of people who had not seen the script. All of their reactions, to quote them, was that it was one of the rare occasions where the movie lives up to the trailer. I think people are going to love it. It's like a nonstop ride. The experience of watching this movie is like nothing I've personally ever seen ... I hate using bad cliches, but it's an authentic, visceral thriller."

Thanks to Dennis for the scans of the article.
