Things like this basically remind me of what I view minecraft as anyway(and why I enjoy endermen)
I picture minecraft as a...violent world. Minecraft doesn't want this new visitor, Steve, who shows no respect for the world, changing the landscape, killing animals, building more than a home out of necessity, but a castle out of pride. Challenging the land, and acting as if he ruled everything, continuing to destroy the beauty of the world, and messing with the balance of things.
I picture minecraft as ever changing. For instance--the different seeds. I picture all of the seeds as one world. No, not together in one humongous world, separated by oceans. There is only one world of minecraft, but it changes. We were not the first visitor. The last visitor to the world watched as endermen 'destroyed' the landscape. They took blocks and vanished. What he didn't see was the repositioning of blocks around the world. Creating new islands. Making a forest where a desert once was, making an ocean where a mountain was. These drastic changes are done slowly, constantly. We cannot understand what they are trying to do, that's why the changes look ugly and horrifying. We don't want OUR world to be changed. We feel we own this land. How dare they destroy the land we worked so hard to conquer.
So we fight. We fight using the tools we stole from the land itself. The land creates monsters to kill us at night. The world continues to fall apart around us. Eventually, as we are fighting for years, the world becomes more violent. Natural disasters like earthquakes wreck the land, causing giant ravines to split areas in two. Oceans pour into the cracks in the world. But within the deepest reaches of minecraft, there is danger. A danger the void fog warns of. New beasts, large monsters, that have yet to have been defeated. Maybe previous "steves" have fought them before. Maybe creating a fortress underground to battle and enslave the monsters(prison cells in strongholds)
Now all we find are their ruins, which are still being reconstructed. Lava pours into strongholds, trying to hide that there was once anything there. Hallways stop midway, rooms that have been destroyed--for they told too many secrets. We appeared too early. They weren't ready. Leftover pieces from the old world remain. Strongholds, chests, dungeons, even leftover pieces from old mountains that had not been reconstructed yet.(The weird looking mountains, that look unrealistic)
Maybe we are the same person and this is our personal hell. A new world we feel we can conquer that slowly devours us. We 'die', and are left with a sort of amnesia. Sometimes we awake quickly. Our world is still where we left it, our items are still available for us to pick up. But sometimes when we die, we sleep for years, and all is lost. The world is rebuilt. We awaken, everything we had created is gone, not that we remember it. We look around, in a new world, and we build again. Every time we get closer to the secrets, the world is rewritten. The more we go through this, the more we can see.(updates bringing new aspects to the world) Before, we slept for so long, the endermen were able to completely rewrite the world, and give us a space to let us 'try again'. Think the early days of alpha--when you spawned in a mysterious house. We had a space to live, and we could grow food. Of course we would simply live peacefully with the world. But we didn't. Eventually, they stopped giving us the home to live in. We wake up in the middle of nowhere, with absolutely nothing. Our first day is a struggle to survive, as we have our instinctual fear of night already, despite never having been attacked by monsters before. We know night=danger. We live for years, eventually growing pompous. We build grinders because we have learned how the monsters work. Monsters adapt. So do we. Eventually, the endermen no longer hide themselves, or wait for us to go into a deep sleep to rewrite our world. They cannot simply let this happen. They destroy our grinders right in front of our eyes. They start moving the world early. They know we will die soon, and we will forget everything.
Maybe 11 is a previous Steve, be it an older visitor, or a memory of our previous adventure. Maybe he learned something, he tried to record it. He was stopped. Perhaps Herobrine is the old steve, or a horribly corrupted shell of him. Maybe he is what the world has been trying to hide. Now we wonder, was the world hiding things from us to abuse and torture us, or to protect us from this greater evil? Were we stopped in our tracks because we anger the world with our creations, or because we are drawing too much attention to ourselves, bringing evil closer to us. Clearly we have a connection to dark worlds. We have created a portal to the Nether. We are able to survive in that hellish place. But is it really such a good idea to explore and mock evil, when there are things we don't even understand in this world?
It's spooky! I like doing things like this. Even silly things like just simple updates can be fun to explain as something that was perhaps there all along, but was hidden.. :laugh.gif: Cheesy maybe, but fun.
To be honest, it could be anything, but until we know, it's fun to come up with stories!
might be part of a ''Disc diary''
In 11 Steve escapes from a Mob (probably a creeper or something unknown)
in 12 (not added YET?) Steve fights it and loses
In 13 Steve wakes up in a dungeon/cavern and goes back to his house, and hears some ambient sounds and stuff in the way.

if you press that green ''+'' over there the forum will bug out and turn you into a moderator.
First off, the scene starts in a natural underground structure, most likely a cave or a stronghold.
After throwing some torches down, using flint and steel, and exploring a bit, something happens. Many people presume it's a mob, or Herobrine. I'm not being so quick to assume it's him yet, so let's say it's a mob.
If it is a mob, it doesn't make an audible sound. So it must be a Creeper, because Endermen do make noises, even when not provoked.
If the mob was a Creeper, the player doesn't fight, but runs away. Then sprints. We know he doesn't fight the Creeper because there is no hissing, and it doesn't explode. By now we can assume the player got away, the steps are made from stone to grass.
Then the record cuts off. This could simply be an explanation of the broken record, that there's no more to it. Nevertheless, it is a spooky ending.
If it was Herobrine, which I don't recommend believing in, we could infer that the player had found him in the cave/stronghold. And fled like mad, but might not have gotten away.
Sincerely, who knows? It could simply be a track to scare players and keep them on their toes. What do you think?
i really am starting to like the scary mysteries in minecraft and i hope there will be a story to follow if you want, or ignore it if you dont. i really hope that this disc 11 turns into much more then notch trolling minecrafters for shits and giggles
Quite simply, its a guy in the Nether, running from a ghast. He lights a fire on Netherrack, and open up his journal. The ghast follows after him, and he takes off sprinting over a gravel patch, and fires at him, ending the track. That's all it is, nothing more.
I've done plenty of searching, and I talked to an anonymous source I call "What-I-Think-Guy". He, after listening to it for plenty of hours, said:
"I think this is a hint. A hint, to what is to come in the future of minecraft. If you listen to the record for awhile, you get the sence of fear as you dig anywhere. Herobrine was the first thing that came to my mind, either how he became, or that he was chasing someone. But, after listening to the record, he was past on. I have felt Herobrine would be an obvious record tape, but the question I asked myself had to be 'Why is there only 1 of these messages?" So, with my conclusion, I have decided that this record is of a man, a Steve if you may, finding a mob no body had seen. I appropriatly named this unseen mob as 'The Corian', because of the sound of Steves breathing, as if he is coming from his 'core'. Nothing excites me more than thinking that a mob could cause such pantic."
I have faith in the What-I-Think-Guy, mostly because he has been right on most accounts of things I've seen.

That Plus button means nothing to me. Give me some internets, cause I'm cool.
Here is something that may help with additional info, as well as some facts
Now this might not seem like anything, but i suggest watching this video on youtube, because the important part is mainly the date
the date on the video is January 29 of this year, and you can see on the video that this is during minecraft beta 1.2, long before any of these disks came out
a man is mineing deep udner-ground....
he comes across some form of wooden room.
he lights up some torches carefull.
he sees a large book. and flickers through it rapidly.
he feels that hes being watched.
he runs and diggs away frantically.
as he digs he finds his way into the stronghold library
looking over books as he hears a sound of chains cracking, and bones coming closer
he places a torch and smoke evaporates into the air and begins to cough
and hears the sound coming closer and closer he begins to run digging away scurrying
to find a way out till he digs through dirt staring into a cloud of darkness...
that bops him on the head with a dirt block
bop bop bop :biggrin.gif:
We have a winnar!

It's hard waiting around for something that you know might never happen; but it's even harder to give up when you know it's everything you ever wanted.
