The boiler room worked out well enough for me. The power lasted about three days before I ran out of gas for the generator., and after that I found the old coal furnace and used that to at least stay warm for another day. Now I must move. They seem to have lost interest in this building, but I have seen what they do to things that have no use to them, it is not pretty. It seems that they don't use combustion, like a bomb or bullets, I never heard any explosions. Just the sound of the buildings collapsing.

I still have received no messages, but I only have this limited resource at my disposal. So I am planning on going out into the city tonight, I am going to try to get down to the Radio Shack on Polk St. I need a CB Radio, they have batteries there too. I figure that is a reliable form of communication that will pick up most any signal in the area. I hope the place wasn't looted too bad. I, oh god... What is that light? No! Not now! Dammit I thought I had more ti...

...the, the building is still standing, but the sounds... Oh, god the sounds. The building sounds like it's crying. It... it sounds like in those submarine movies when they start going too deep and the hull starts to collapse. It's as if the walls are sinking. This place is made of fucking marble! The stone is starting to crumble, dammit I need to get out of here. Uh, backpack, charger, phone, gun, ok, oh shit picture! I need to leave. FUCK! it's still light out. Shit, shit, shit! OK uh, FIND ME I AM ON THE MOVE! I will try to stay in the tenderloin district. Please someone... fast. *click*


I have been out of commission for the last few days. They shut down the power downtown. These things are smart. God bless government buildings and their generators. The trick was finding it to turn it on. I am only comfortable with moving at night. Thats the only time I can see them. I still don't know what they look like. I have seen their eyes. They glow at night. They look like mother of pearl. They don't blink. There are so many of them.

It took me 2 days to get down from the 3rd floor of the library down to the basement safely. I have been searching for some kind of info on these things. Hoping that someone has posted some kind of knowledge on them. So far this and this are the best I can find. As I said I haven't found much.

I am hiding out in the boiler room now. There is only one way in or out. I locked the door. Hopefully I am safe. I am afraid I have locked myself into my own coffin. Please help. Someone, anyone.

Oh, god I am hungry.


WOW, sorry.

A mouse here in the library just made me jump across the room. These "things" really are that silent... as a mouse. I am not sure if I have slept. I may have passed out a few days ago for a while. this place seems relatively safe, it is quiet here, so I can listen for them better. What was my last post? Oh yeah.

On Thursday morning The U.S. President announced martial law on the entire country, he said it was a matter of national and world security. Governments all over the world tried to cover up what was really happening. They censored many of the major news stations. The flow of information was shut down. That is when things went from bad to worse. With our own government keeping us in the dark, and with as heavy of a military presence as our dwindling armed forces could muster, a suffocating claustrophobic presence fell over the country. It was almost palpable. People started looting, there were more suicides, many radicals moved out west to the deserts hoping to escape whatever seemed so imminent. We heard minimal news from other countries, but from what I gathered it was much the same throughout most of the rest of the world. Japan lost nearly an eighth of its population to sepuku in one day, after the announcement made by their Prime Minister. Of course I have no way of confirming that, but if it is like this over there, I wouldn't be surprised.

Invasion (I-day) + 22 February 7th, 2008

I am not sure why I am doing this. I am just hoping for some sort of connection, if you are out there please respond! I haven't looked out the window for three days. They are silent, but I can hear them, I follow the screams. But those have become less and less frequent now. I guess part of why I am doing this is so that there is some record of what has happened. The weird news stories began showing up about a week into January, some time around the sixth or seventh. There were numerous reports of people seeing things in the sky, and shadowy figures on the ground. Most people disregarded these stories in the beginning. But as the week wore on there was just too much weird shit going on to deny that something was actually happening.

The U.S. government announced a press conference would be held on Thursday January tenth. Many other countries quickly followed suit. This global governmental push made it clear that there was something actually happening, that this all wasn't just some screwed up joke. On January ninth, I was walking through my office and I could hear people murmuring about the seriousness of the situation. It had been reported that there were mass suicides throughout the world as fear of the unkno
