"Steve Says"

The four word triplets from Aaaaa! tip "Fact: SteveSaysOcelot SteveSaysJellyfish ProcyProxyManatee ProcyProxyMantis" each lead to an unlisted YouTube video of LLLLongJumper playing Aaaaa! Others are hinted in these first 4 videos, and on those new videos, and so on.

From the blog:

Just got an email from Steve. He included like fifteen links and he hid them all behind url shorteners. 
I hate it when he does that. At least half of them will just be his idea of jokes.

So there may be more SteveSays ones to find. It could just refer to the ProcyProxy ones, of course.

This is more or less solved. It says "Lo-fi wave tossed! It is a sad hoop game."

Unconfirmed "ProcyProxy" Videos

  • This one is odd, as it was found in the comments, yet has a seemingly coded message. It might be a red-herring...

"CrimeFlyer"

Each of the word triplets at the end of the The Wonderful End of the World also links to something:

 Albert Gratin: CONT'D at CrimeFlyerIntimidator
 Don O'Leary: CONT'D at CrimeFlyerPuncher
 Eric Williams Borst: CONT'D at CrimeFlyerInventor

There's definitely a lot of these, try checking every word triplets you see anywhere with this technique and post new ones you find here.
