Other Items of InterestEdit
- "Moon River" was written for a famous 1961 movie called, "Breakfast at Tiffany's". The main character, Holly Golightly (played by Audrey Hepburn) loves the classy surroundings of the Tiffany jewelry store in New York City.
- "Total Eclipse of the Heart" was featured in the Bruce Willis, Cate Blanchett, and Billy Bob Thornton 2001 movie, "Bandits." The two main characters were thieves who showed up at people's houses dressed in costumes.
- The musical notes on the piano's sheet music appear to be "D" and "E." (Alternately, "F" and "G".)
- Sigfried also mentions "Moon River" and "A Bach Sonata." Bach's Sonatas weren't generally for piano.
- The names Sigfried and Montecore are associated with the Siegfried & Roy lion taming act based in Las Vegas. Montecore is the name of the white tiger that mauled Siegfried onstage in 2003.
- Plumpjack is apparently the name of a vineyard and associated businesses in the San Francisco area.
- "Plumpjack" and "Siegfried" are also the names of operas.
- "The Metronome" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metronome_(public_artwork) is a large public art installation (a clock without a face!?) in New York City. It is "a clock without a face" on Union Square between 5th and Broadway.
State - Highway - MileEdit
A copy of The Clock Without a Face can be seen on the Fifth Floor. Residents Vera Mazel & Josie Grey are self-described puzzle people. When discussing the book, Vera asks for help saying that she had found the state and the mile, but can't find the highway. This has lead to the speculation that each buried number can be found by deducing a state, highway, and mile for each floor using clues found on each floor. The following section can be used for documenting any speculation as to which state, mile, and highway to which this floor may hint.
- Minnesota - Two of everything could be pointing to the Twin Cities. The tunnels could give the impression of the tunnels or skyway system of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Montecore's metronome is missing. Metronome could be a pointer to the Metrodome, located in Minnesota. The thermometer could read 94. I-94 runs through Minnesota.
- When presented with this line of speculation, Gus Twintig replied, "All I can contribute is this: I would want to be a little more confident in the thieves overall system and the specific location before heading all the way to darkest Minnesota."
- Delaware - If the music notation truly is "D" and "E"
- New York
- Nevada - Many Las Vegas references: Sigfried and Montecore (Siegfried and Roy w/ Montecore were Las Vegas fixtures); Elves (Elvis also a Las Vegas icon); Net at the aquarium (fishnet references costume for showgirls); Red lights (perhaps references nearby Nevada bordellos - redlight district). The spaghetti tangle of the hamster run might reference the intersection of I-15 and Hwy 95 which is nicknamed "Spaghetti Bowl Junction". "Moon River" - There's a Moon River Street northwest of the intersection of I-15 and Hwy 95. There's a Plumpjack Avenue in Henderson, southeast of Las Vegas.
