So, Syfy put out a second episode of “Channel Zero,” and I feel I have to review it. Why? Damned if I know. Anyway, let’s catch up a bit on what happened last time. Spoilers!
Child psychologist and guy who had a twin brother Mike Painter goes back to his childhood home after being released from a psych ward. He decides to do a bit of investigation into the death of his brother and other kids. During this, he ends up at the home of an old friend where said old friend’s child, Katie, is watching an old show named “Candle Cove.” The next day, Katie goes missing and Mike assumes there’s a connection between “Candle Cove,” Katie, and the dead kids. Mike finds Katie, arousing the suspicion of her parents, and our final shot is of…Grave…

Syfy recently started broadcasting a new show, Channel Zero. The reason why this information has some importance is that this show, for those who don’t know, is based on certain Creepypasta stories, most notably “Candle Cove.”
I actually saw the show and decided, “Golly gee, I sure need to say things about it.” Why? Well, I have a penchant for not shutting up, and also to let everyone know I’m still alive and active. I’m not leaving, which a lot of people seem to be doing these days.
Anyway, those things I need to say happen to be a review. Spoilers: I’ll be going through the whole episode, so if you haven’t seen it and have a thing against spoilers, then go do other things. I hear Pokemon GO and dank memes are pretty popular these days.

I’ve been on the Creepypasta Wiki for a little over two years. In that time, I’ve learned quite a bit, both about myself and writing. I don’t pretend to be an expert in either, but I feel that some of what I’ve learned regarding writing and such could be useful to some people.
My first piece of advice: read bad stories. Many people tell you to read good stories, and while that’s not a bad thing (in fact, you should do that too), it’s also a good idea to read bad stories. Consider it a guide on what not to do.
But what, you might wonder, do I mean by bad stories? Well, there’s you standard bad, like Twilight, 50 Shades of Grey, etc. I’m not exactly talking about those. They’re actually pretty low on the scale of shit. I’m talking more like bott…

Given the recent influx of blog posts whining about story deletions, I decided to do something I said I wouldn’t do: write another blog post about story deletion.
However, this one is different. This one is sort of a Q and A. Basically, I’ll write the common complaints I see in these blogs, and then write the logical responses to them. Sometimes the complaints will be in questions, sometimes not.
Also, in the “answers,” I might quote other users. However, they will be credited.
Some might say that by acknowledging these posts, it serves as encouragement, as the people who write said posts want attention. Well, this is sort of a way to counteract that. Rather than putting in time and effort to explain to someone why their argument is flawed, j…

I've read many Creepypasta stories. A lot of them suck. Granted, 90% of the time, I'm looking for sucky stories, but still.
However, sometimes, they're just hard to get through. The bad writing, the horrid spelling and grammar, and, oh lord, the cliches. It gets to be a bit tiring.
So, I decided why not make this fun? Rather than get annoyed with cliches, why not get excited by them? To that end, I have created...Crappypasta Cliche Bingo!
From file extensions to 666 to bullies to interns, Crappypasta Cliche Bingo has every cliche for whatever kind of story you're reading.
Of course, some of you may want something more specific to the genre (or is it sub-genre) of crap you're reading. Well, that's presently in the works. However, at the moment,…Read more >
