In Regards to Disturbing Films.
Glad I found someone who enjoys (is enjoyment the word I'm looking for here? Probably not. Mildly interested, perhaps?) Disturbing films! I've seen many of the ones you've mentioned here, so I'll give my thoughts on the ones I have seen and note the ones I need to see. Both are appreciated.
Where the Dead Go to Die- I hated this movie. Plain and simple. Not because it was disturbing, or it really managed to push my buttons or anything, but rather because I found it to be simply boring. Furthermore, the fact that it was animated in such a poor way just made it unwatchable. Mad props to whoever came up with the title, though.
Caligula- I mean, from a technical standpoint, this movie was horrible, but I can't help but enjoy it for all its craziness. So that makes it, what? Okayish? I certainly don't want to call it good.
Re-Animator- Fuck yes. I love this movie so much. At this point, I've seen it around three times, and I own the original story by H.P. Lovecraft. Again, sort of like Caligula, I don't know if this is a movie you can call good with a straight face, but it's so much fun to watch that I can't help it. The oral rape zombie scene was... well, a bit far. At least movies like A Clockwork Orange address rape and sexuality in a very straightforward and honest manner. To see it displayed in such a campy style, and to think that someone clearly thought the audience would enjoy it, is kind of disturbing, come to think of it.
I've yet to see Hollywood and the Holocaust. It's added to my watchlist.
The Passion of the Christ- Ha! Yes, I, a devoted atheist have seen this movie. Last year, around Easter, just mostly out of respect for the Christian faith, I decided to watch this movie. It's pretty well made, I guess. But it's not faithful to the source material at all. I'll have to agree with the daughter's boyfriend. The book was better, concluded.
I too watch a lot of countdowns. Particularly Rob Dyke's Seriously Strange: Twisted Tens series.
With that said, feel free to contact me from your corner. These discussions are always so interesting to me.
Trust me, Caligula was, unfortunately pretty damn accurate. People were complete sex hounds back then, and we honestly still are now (refer to A Serbian Film), and furthermore, Caligula himself was notorious for being an enormous pervert. Just check out what Cracked.com had to say about him. About his career, a certain badass bearded shock rocker seems to beputting it back on track.
As far as pure outrageousness goes, it might actually be way more disturbing to write something incredibly depraved and expect audiences to enjoy it. For example,this is a very disturbing and hard to watch scene, but virtually everyone involved knew it was fucked up. The music, the black and white, the pure feeling of anger and horror mingling together signifies that this scene is supposed to be disturbing (which it is). However, new levels could probably be transcended with the idea of showing something very disturbing with other emotions and feels entirely attached, Makes you wonder whether this writer was a genius, psychopath, or combination thereof. Hmmm....
Oh yeah, I've seen Switchblade Romance (I'm American, but Switchblade Romance... man, that just sounds so cool! The guy who came up with that title and the guy who came up with the title of Where the Dead Go to Die should get together sometime and share a pizza), and I liked the majority of it, given. Although the plot twist basically cut down it's merit into "Okay," territory.
I Made a Mistake
So, I was looking through your archive at my previous posts to see where I left off on our conversation, well, I accidentally replied to your archive (not allowed to delete discussions, so I'm just going to leave it there. It's the very last post on your archive luckily, so not a whole lot of digging required XD Sorry about that. Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 06:56, October 5, 2016 (UTC)
- I'm happy to hear that things are going well and that your nephew is continuing his education. I'm eagerly looking forward to seeing your new entry! I still need to finish the last Tobit. I had started reading it and got a third of the way through, but haven't continued because of how busy I am :( I don't understand why people go overboard with jargon. Are they trying to impress someone? It just makes me stop reading. Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 21:03, October 7, 2016 (UTC)
- Yeah, how do they expect people to learn more with terrible/non-informative methods? I've always hated the "snooty fan" and have adopted the "they aren't actual fans, but just people who like knowing something that others don't and holding it over their heads" attitude. A real fan of something would be passionate and so happy to share what they know with someone else who takes an interest.
- Actor/Producer/Writer/Handsome Man Bruce Campbell said it best about fans when asked if ever had a bad experience with fans in his recent Reddit Ask Me Anything (paraphrasing a tad bit here), "I've never had a bad experience with fans and always appreciate them coming to a signing or event and the dedication/time they have/put aside to wait in line to meet me. What I do not like is the people who will ambush me when I get off an airplane and who want an autograph, those people aren't fans. A fan would show up for the conventions or events to meet me. These people just want free autograph so that they can sell them and I will not indulge that type of behavior." I can't help, but agree with him and I think that's helped shape my view of the "snooty fan" quite a bit.
- I'm trying to think, there is an author who is rumored to have the worst temper of all time, but is actually the nicest sort of person there is. Oh, Alan Moore, author of the Batman comic 'The Killing Joke'. He may actually have a low tolerance for idiocy, but he's a really nice guy:  I bring this up because you made me wonder about how much of the stuff said about him is made up by angry people who he didn't let have their way (probably all of the negative stuff). For what it is worth, I don't really pay attention to negative things I hear about famous people... only the positive because at least if it is made up it makes them seem better XD It's not like I can verify anything I hear on them.

Re: Dreddful World
I think John Cleese would agree. To be fair to the Dredd 2012 movie it was a fanboy's dream but it didn't come close to capturing that insanity. Batman will always have Adam West to convey that early silliness, but the closest Dredd fans have is Sylvester Stallone O_o ChristianWallis (talk) 08:13, October 5, 2016 (UTC)
- I think Stephen Fry summed up the difference between American and British comedy best. He identified the scene in animal house where John Belushi takes the guitar and smashes it to pieces and Fry notes that American comedians want to be Belushi's character, but British comedians want to be the guy who has his guitar smashed. It's not a perfect summary but I think it's interesting nonetheless because it helps explain some of the difficulties in adaptations. And I can't possibly think of the show you're on about with the exploding pudding but it sounds almost like something The Young Ones would have. Oh and if you're interested in just how far John Cleese took that joke he played a musical version of the scene during the world cup... in Berlin ChristianWallis (talk) 16:33, October 5, 2016 (UTC)
Pennywise and Clown Foolish (Cont.)
Ha, yeah, that's why I usually keep the hood down in public (Usually). And who knows, maybe death threats are fun, I'm not going to judge! Excellent discussion we're having here, lmao. Looking forward to the new Houseguests part.
- Cool! Sorry for the delay. I'll try to get to that long-awaited last part soon.

Last night, I started working on fixing some of the errors in the Haunting Hour pasta Dr. Frank caught. I'm going to continue fixing the errors on that pasta tonight (well if I feel well or I'm not that tired that is). Then when I finish correcting the errors in that pasta, I'll move onto fixing the errors that you caught in that Pokemon pasta. That Wooper comic was preety sweet indeed!
Reply to "Gengars and Grumpigs" Message
Gengar and Grumpig are some of my favorite Pokemon! I fixed most of the errors on the Pokepasta. I added a new part to it and here it is: (Meanwhile, the blonde woman was near the machine where the man's daughter was. She watched the man sob and her heart grew heavy but her attention had soon shifted to the daughter tugging on her lab coat. The woman stared at the girl and gently stroked her arm. "You know what, sweetie?" The woman whispered, "I don't care what my boss says. I'm doing the procedure. I mean... you're a strong kid, right?" The daughter nodded and the blonde woman pushed the table into the machine and closed the door.
Before the thought could continue, I heard footsteps banging on the floor behind me, causing me to walk faster. The footsteps grew louder and gradually got closer to me. As I continued walking, my eyes darted around the hall and my heart beat accelerated. I soon found myself getting closer to another set of double doors, where one of them looked as though its hinges had rusted away and toppled over. Just as I was about to reach the doors, the footsteps were within earshot of me. I felt my whole body heating up and I quickly turned around and let out a steady stream of fire. A few moments later, I frantically looked around to see what had been making those footsteps. "Huh?" I shouted. Much to my surprise, the only things I saw were the empty hallway and a few particles flying in the air from the fire. I backed away for a few more seconds before I leapt over the toppled door.
On the other side of the toppled door was a hallway that had all of its windows smashed or cracked. As I was running, my breathing became louder and heavier and my vision became blurry. When I reached the end of the hallway, I noticed that the doors were covered in wooden boards of all shapes and sizes.)
I removed this part: (She then stood on the left side of the machine and starting inputting a code as a beeping noise followed each button press. Once the beeping stopped, the machine began to make a low muffled humming sound followed by a whirring sound.
The blonde woman began screaming as the brown haired woman charged at her like a bull and tackled her to the ground. The machine began to emit sparks and the whirring sound grew louder and louder. The daughter screamed at the top her lungs and kicked the door as hard as she could. All of a sudden, a blinding flash illuminated the inside of the machine.) And I plan on moving it to a later part of the story for pacing reasons. I have no idea what will come after the part where the protagonist notices the boarded up doors.
Snitches Get Stitches
Except in this case. Thanks for pointing that out. My internet may as well not be working it's going so slow, so I don't have any good "Snitches Get Stitches" videos, or Chappelle's "When Keepin' It Real Goes Wrong" clips (I keeps it real!). Hope all is well on your end. Have a good one.
Reply to "Grumpig" Message
That Grumpig bank looks cool! I'd like to get one but I'm saving my money for something more important (A 2DS and Pokemon Sun version).
Good news! I submitted a story to the Darkness Prevails website and my story was selected to be in his Halloween collab video! This is the link to the stories that could be in the video: (http://darknessprevails.org/halloween-special-collaboration/) I can't wait for the collab to be released!
So I reworked a part for the Haunting Hour pasta. This is the original version of that part: ("Woah! It's dark out already? How is that even possible?" I said out loud. At that moment, I wondered if Erika and Hunter had come home and decided to make my way downstairs. As I made my way to the door, I suddenly froze in place as I heard three heavy knocks that were at least a few seconds apart. My heart was beating quickly and my eyes darted around the room. They sounded like they were coming from across the hall but I didn't bother to look and see which room they were coming from. A few seconds later, something seemed to slam against the door to my room and I screamed at the top of my lungs. I scrambled away from the door and cowered behind the queen sized bed.)
This is the refined version: ("Woah! It's dark out already? How is that even possible?" I said out loud. At that moment, I wondered if Erika and Hunter had come home. However, when I tried to make my way to the door, I stopped dead in my tracks and went back to the daybed. A few moments later, I suddenly froze in place as I heard three heavy knocks that were at least a few seconds apart. My heart was beating quickly and my eyes darted around the room. They sounded like they were coming from across the hall but I didn't want to look and see which room they were coming from. A few seconds later, something slammed against the door to my room and I screamed at the top of my lungs. I then cowered behind the queen sized bed and softly whimpered.) I think this version might work a little better since I'm trying to avoid having the protagonist fall into the "Main Character in a Horror Movie/Story makes Awful Decisions" trap. Maybe this version will help but I honestly don't know.
I've also been working on a plot outline for episode two of Pokemon: Johto Quest. Here's what I got so far:
(Episode 2 Outline
1. The episode begins with a brief recap of the events from the previous episode (Last time on Pokemon: Johto Quest! Our heroes formed a powerful friendship with one another and are planning on heading to the Lake of Rage, the first stop on their quest to get to the Nidoran region. Will our heroes reach the Lake of Rage? Well, of course they will they're the main characters! But maybe I, the great and powerful narrator, will be wrong this time around.)
2. Emily talks to Eddy about her father. She tells him how great he was to her and even tells him a story about how a couple of boys mistook him for a Machoke due to his appearance and threw Pokeballs at him. Once he noticed the boys doing this, he scared them off and the boys never made that mistake again.
3. A little while later, Emily starts to get hungry and goes to find some food. She later comes across some Oran berries hanging on a bush and proceeds to pick them. She and Eddy then throw the empty stems on the ground so that Arceus can supposedly use them to make new berries. After they do so, Emily and Eddy hear some growling around them, which Emily dismisses as nothing more than their stomachs growling.
4. The pair continue on their way but as they're walking, they hear more growling, which makes Emily doubt if the growling from earlier was actually from their stomachs. They begin to walk faster and faster until a Houndour leaps out from the bushes and tackles Emily to the ground.
5. The Houndour then bites Emily as its fangs puncture her lower left arm. As the Houndour is biting her, her arm stats to bleed profusely.
6. Eddy then charges at the Houndour and tackles it with all of it might. The Houndour rolls on the ground for a bit before getting back up and using Ember on Eddy.)
Re: House of Obesity
Funny story: as soon as I asked, "Golly gee, where is that story?" I did a quick Google search and found it.
Also, thanks for pointing out its existence. I read it, and found it rather bizarre. And not in a good bizarre, more like a "wat" kind of bizarre. As such, I did start Riffing it, but never finished. I've been busy/lazy, and have unofficially been on a hiatus because life. I mean, sometimes I'll find a story and start Riffing it, but I rarely finish anymore. Quite a shame.
I'll be back, though. Just because I haven't been active on the Wiki or the Riffs doesn't mean I'm gone. Besides, it seems like everyone's leaving nowadays.
Hi Raidra! I hope everything's going great for you, hopefully your mother is feeling better and that you're having a great day! Luigifan100 01:00, October 17, 2016 (UTC)
Reply to "Bentos Gum!" Message
I actually know of bento, mostly from watching anime and learing about it through that one passport project on Japan from my homeschooling days. I may actually have a picture of bento somewhere.
The wallet thing kind of reminds me of this one King of The Hill video called "Hank of The Hill" by Durhamrozkerz. There was this one scene where a lady was speaking with I'm going to say either a Canadian accent or a Wisconsonish accent and she said "How about a wallet? Would you like to make a wallet?" This is the link to the video: (https://vimeo.com/136582340) I hope you enjoy this video as much as I did.
Yesterday, I found one of my old stories on my computer from like the early 2010's. It's called Skullini: The World's Greatest Magician. Yeah the title sounds kind of ridiculous but the story itself was based on a dream I had years ago. I've resumed working on it and boy was I dumb back then (I didn't know how to properly structure dialog and there were a ton of other weird things like using big words for the sake of it and whatnot.) Thankfully I've polished it up a bit and I don't plan on uploading it to this wiki but if you want to see it, let me know and I'll put it in a Google doc.
What Is Not Lovin' It? (Baby don't hurt me)
So, I started Riffing "Ronald McDonald House," and realized something: it's kind of a pain to Riff. The problem is that for the most part, it's competently written and doesn't have much that's stupid or jest worthy at first. So, I've decided to review it on "The Dork Report," since it's really...odd and needs to be made fun of in some capacity.
Just wanted to let you know.
Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I'm quite interested in WV history, and that particular part of the state's history is especially interesting. I'll try to look into it. I found this video of a famous feud from your home state that I think you might be interested in - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqubBaLSeiA
That sounds nice! I've never met a celebrity or gotten anything autographed from one (unless the weatherman counts, lol), but I bet that was quite the experience. I don't have a lot to say, because I'm not able to relate to the experience (nor do I have anything worthwhile to add about Trump), so I'll just throw a couple of things out there: 1. Oh, your father served! I appreciate his service. Families not knowing about commendations/medals that loved ones have received during war is quite common, I hear. I've read that a lot of people turn them down or don't pursue getting them (It's a respect for the fallen thing). 2. Auntie Anne's is awesome! I love their gigantic pretzels and cheese dip :D Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 05:59, October 20, 2016 (UTC)
- I'd like to meet Mark Hamill one of these days. He really seems to be such a down to earth sort of guy and his signatures usually come with a funny message. People who lie about serving their country should be conscripted and placed into a misfit unit that is solely comprised of others who lied about it (wouldn't be fair to the real troops to place them in a regular unit). I don't get to eat Auntie Anne's very often as there is only one in my state that I know of and it is out of town. It's probably been 2 or 3 years since I last ate there, but the pepperoni pretzel sounds so good. I love pizza based stuff with such a conviction that might put many mothers of newborns to shame (okay, maybe not, but I really love pizza)!
- Yeah, I have all the Pokemon games except Platinum and Heartgold. I have participated in every single Generation up to this point. I'm not skipping because I am angry, but rather because I struggled to retain interest in Y version and Alpha Sapphire (actually didn't finish it); I'm just so burned out because they are releasing the games too often and because the new Pokemon designs don't do much for me. I haven't liked the designs that much since Generation 3 and this will be Generation 7. I hate how the designs don't mesh well/have a consistent art style past Generation 2 (3 sort of meshes and is passable for it and some from 4 kinda do, but 5 onward don't at all and look like they are from an entirely different franchise to me). I did hear about that episode right after it aired, but I don't have much of an opinion on it as I stopped following the show way back when season 2 or 3 ended (the one where Misty left and Johto ended). They've redesigned Ash for the upcoming season and the plot revolves around him going to school, so I don't know what the heck they are thinking. They should stop using Ash and Pikachu already and give a new lead character and mascot Pokemon. Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 06:37, October 21, 2016 (UTC)
I've actually been through Amish country a couple times on my way to Cedar Point, but that was over a decade ago. I remember seeing one of the buggies, and I thought it seemed out of place that they had the big orange and red reflective triangle on the back. I'm sure it's for the best, but I thought it was funny. I can't say I've ever eaten there though, but I definitely wouldn't mind. And that is a rather "interesting" looking trophy. Every time my team lost, I would claim it was on purpose so we didn't have to bring that thing home with us. I went to a Reds game once when I was staying in Cincinnati for a few days, but I really don't remember much about it. I imagine if I had seen that trophy I would remember.
Reply to "Team PETA" Message
Honestly, the whole "Team Plasma = PETA" thing is very believable and I wouldn't be surspirsed if that was the intent. Though, I don't get the whole knight getup they have in the first Black and White games. How do Knights relate to Animal/Pokemon rights? Maybe there's bits and pieces of history I don't know about that might answer my question.
So the game your proposing would kind of be like a crossover between Cooking Mama and Pokemon, am I correct? If so, that sounds rather interesting and I think it could work if it was executed properly.
So the Alola region has no gyms and I may have the answer as to why. You see, the Alola region is made up of small islands so I would imagine that there wouldn't be enough land for gyms and while Hoenn is also a tropical region like Alola, there's more land for gyms.
When you get those trollpastas uploaded, can you let me know? Because I'm currently on chapter 5 of that Skullini story and in this chapter, the protagonist teleports to Quebec to become a magician and eventually show off her powers to science.
Re: Bonus features of the night
Very cool and in-depth, thanks for sharing! It's nice to have an entire character overview for Daniel and his experiments (the part about him being arrogant was spot on), and I actually found Kent's whole backstory with Missy pretty engaging (And I agree with you about the possibility of cool storylines with Kent). I'm also realizing more about what Kent meant when he said "I became Missy’s assistant as self-imposed penance for a failing of mine. It wasn’t something I did as much as something I didn’t do. I willingly became a servant as atonement for something in my past". Now that's all well and good, but this brony issue is really killing me! Don't leave a guy hanging, I need to know the truth! I want to believe!
- Yeah, that's not a bad idea, that would be cool. The reader would probably appreciate it. Good to hear that Kent isn't some sort of self-hating brony. And there are a few NSFW brony-related videos I could link to in response, but it's
probablydefinitely best if I don't.
