Otherwise known as Friday the 13th parts 1 - 3 combo remake/ Friday the 13th Reboot.

Saw it last week, but figured a 'review' of it is a bit long overdue.

You know... I came out of there with mixed feelings. Good in general, but still mixed.

It really threw me off, how the whole weed thing kept getting re-emphasized. I understand they wanted to give the fodder, er, I mean characters a REASON to go there in the first place, but the way they executed the whole 'legendary weed patch' thing was kinda poor. They almost made it seem like Jason was a grumpy & psychotic weed plantation dude, hell bent on protecting his stash & crop. I'm reaaaally glad that about halfway they got away from that, and it became clear that it was just good ol' Jason being motivated by being a big brutal killing machine.

I didn't like the 'cooking in the sleeping bag' kill, tho. I thought that was a bit out of character, just didn't seem right. I'd rather they had homaged the 'sleeping bag against the tree' kill, THAT was killer. Also, the hick dude's death seemed kinda pointless and thrown in (again, hick dude went for weed, & this gave the impression that he was paying the price for messing with the Big J's marijuana stash).

I think Derek Mears was pretty good, though I found his wardrobe to be a bit distracting (White wifebeater looking shirt? Why not a darker color, gray or blue or even forest green at least?) Also there was a couple of shots where the coat was hugging his waist a bit much, and it almost looked like he was wearing a short trenchcoat with a belt on, being all fashionable, it was only for a sec, but it threw me off. I like my Jason Vorhees big brawny and brutal.

On the flipside, the scene in the shed where he's just barreling through shit, walking through the shelves and muscling his way out, THAT WAS FUCKING AWESOME. That really sold me on it, that this was Jason freakin' Vorhees.

*SMALL SEMI-SPOILER AHEAD*
I did get a bit worried near the end, though. I was like, oh great, killing him off already?!!? But I'm glad that's not exactly how it happened. The 'say hello to your mother... IN HELL!' lil Jason goes to hell spoof was great.

Again, after that, I got worried that 'oh and then he sinks and they live happily ever after'... and then... well you know. That gave me the maniacal knowing giggles. (but damn, he put that mask on HELLA FAST!)
***SPOILER ALERT OVER***

I think for a reboot, it was good, and I really like & can appreciate how they pretty much repackaged the first 3 films.

Oh oh, and also...
I felt the deaths shoulda been a bit more creative. Some of them were boring and throwaway (like the screwdriver). And what was up with the sleeping bag kill? Seemed too out of character. WTF was he doing sitting there watching, was he roasting marshmallows too?

The fireplace skewer was cool though, that felt appropriate, same with the dock/ girl in water kill. Antlers was good, axe to the back to the front was good also. Crunchy.

Heh, I hope they do the 'crush head eyeball pop' kill from F13th pIII again in one of these.

I'm just reaaaaaally glad they didn't go the 'gore porn' Hostel route with this movie. (I am of the opinion that Hostel sucks... and that John Doe from Se7en could kick stupid head Jigsaw's garbled ass any day, or at least out perform him with in the clever but diabolical modus operandi department).

Now, I'm really hoping that if there's another one (is it true there's supposed to be 2?) that they start going the 'undead & unstoppable huge brute' route, but doing it RIGHT. I think, most Jason/ Ft13th fans kinda glean all the best bits of the lore from all the flicks to build up the best version of Jason that we can - I'm actually really hopeful that these guys will use all that to truly revitalize and realise the character & series.

And the whole pretty people thing gets a bit old (wtf was with the one chick at the beginning's boobery? It was like she had 2 giant M&M's duct taped to her ribs!). Give me Joe Everyday Schmoe and the 'real' looking girls instead. Which is actually something I really appreciated about 'Hatchet' (which btw, have you seen that?). I hope they do more 'normal' people in the following Ft13th films.

Oddly enough... it almost seems like they took a big chunk of the formula from Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon for lots of the way the movie was set up... But I suppose, Leslie Vernon did the same when it came to the rules of the 'industry'. (By the way, if you haven't seen BTM:TROLV - I highly recommend you do... NOW!)

Anyway... :blahblah:

And I'd like you to see it...

This Harry Potter adventure seems like it's due to be really something on the big screen. Hopefully, they will make it much better than the book overall, as teen angst riddled whiny Potter really made me wanna smack him. Guess we'll see though, right?

That orphanage that Tom Riddle was staying at must've been pretty creepy to sleep in, can you imagine? Also, I'm not quite sure what's going on with the steampunk look to the wands though. It's almost like they're some kind of wireless devices or some crap.

I'm trying to figure out who all the characters are in that big scene in one of the clips... Hmm...

And wow... the creatures in that movie are going to be MESSED UP!

MAAAAAAAAaaaan. There is some NASTY nasty stuff going around. I've been neck deep in fixing PC's at our office, and also here at home.
Vundo & Zlob viruses, as well as some Seneka worms and some DJJuan crap that was infesting a couple of PC's at work. (techy guy is just one of a few hats I wear at the day gig, ;) )

Unfortunately, one of my PC's here at the house has died completely, but it's on the hardware side of things, and I'm kind of stuck!

It's a Dell XPS 400. It started with B.S.O.D. (0x00000024) upon start up, some kind of conflict with the hard drive.
I suspect this happened when I ran Daemon Tools to run a 'virtual drive' back up of an old game I wanted to play. The game crashed, and I think what happened to lock the system up in blue screen was that the defragging service was stubbornly looking for these non-existant drives when I rebooted. I was able to enter the bios screen, etc, and tried starting in safe mode (w & w/o networking, and CMD mode) to no avail.

I tried doing a 'restart with last known working good configuration', etc, but still got B.S.O.D'd. On all these attempts, it always crashed before even getting to the desktop screen. Also, I think I'm in the unlucky batch of people that didn't get a recovery disk packaged in with my PC, so I've contacted them and put in a request for a boot disk (Windows XP Media Center Ed.).

But it also gets worse!!!

Now it won't even turn on anymore! (no power, but the LED on the MOBO still turns on, so does the ethernet cable plug)
I took the whole thing apart, and even reseated the Processor, plugging and unplugging as I went along, holding the power button down, etc.
Until I eventually plugged everything back in again, except I left out the 2nd slave HDD, but still no dice.

As far as I can tell, I've narrowed it down to possibly one of 3 things (besides the issue with the harddrive conflict)
power switch or power switch cable
power supply
motherboard

I don't know what to do, but I've been working on it all day yesterday, and all day today, and still nothing.

Any ideas? I am on an extremely tight budget, so I can't just willy nilly jump on to an Alienware or Blackhawk gaming monster rig, and I sure as hell don't want to pay Geek Squad out the nose!

The alternative is just buying another barebones machine from Tiger, plugging in this drive as a secondary, pulling everything I need from it and then just formatting the thing as an extra drive.

These are kind of what I'm looking at (and yeah, looks like I would have to buy a copy of Windows XP, and a cooling unit for these).

www.tigerdirect.com/applicatio…
www.tigerdirect.com/applicatio…

Or if you have some PC suggestions, please do link me.
I would be looking for something with a minimum of 6 USB ports, 4 memory slots (on a mobo that supports at LEAST 4GB of ram or more), AMD or Intel is fine, on the faster end of things (higher than 2.1ghz ideally) and a decent sound card.

I would likely just end up Frankensteining all the extra gear, memory, disk drives, etc, off of the currently dead PC. What do you think?

The choices between repairing the XPS, or buying another machine seem to each have their own hefty pros & cons, too. blargh.

AAaaaaaaah!

We are the clouds that veil the midnight moon;
     How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
     Night closes round, and they are lost forever:

Or like forgotten lyres, whose dissonant strings
     Give various response to each varying blast,
To whose frail frame no second motion brings
     One mood or modulation like the last.

We rest.--A dream has power to poison sleep;
     We rise.--One wandering thought pollutes the day;
We feel, conceive or reason, laugh or weep;
     Embrace fond foe, or cast our cares away:

It is the same!--For, be it joy or sorrow,
     The path of its departure still is free:
Man's yesterday may ne'er be like his morrow;
     Nought may endure but Mutability.

- Percy Bysshe Shelley

So, you know how it goes with those emails, right? I'm sure you guys have gotten these emails from the Nigerian/Russian/Martian/Hillbilly/French/etc/419 scammers before, where they say they have millions of dollars and that some wealthy schmoe somewhere died in a plane crash, and they want to give you a cut of the inheritance, because they work at a high end financial institution, and so forth blah blah blah... :blahblah:

I have a hobby around this: sometimes if these emails catch me in a particularly vindictive mood, I'll have fun with them. :w00t:

The following is one of those times, you can just skim loosely over the italicized part, you pretty much get the idea. That's just the email from the scammer, but my reply is the text afterwards. Enjoy!

AND MY REPLY...

Hello Mr. Nanga Saar.

I hope you regret terribly, that you actually presume wrong. And this is in fact, quite a 'surprised' message for me to receive at these dire times. Thank you regardless, for contacting me at this magnitude, latitude, longitude, with your wildly ambitious lucrative fabrications.
So please, allow me to kindly dispose of some of your allocated time, and enlighten you with a much well deserved response.

Everyone in my family have been launched into orbit and placed in a lunar colony, as part of a harrowing test being performed for research purposes, for the introduction of humanity into the rest of the solar system. However, I hear there are some conflicts occurring with a certain Dr. Smith, who seems to have interests of his own. And then there is the Robinsons whose work is extremely vital to the project. William, especially, with his artificially intelligent mechanical companion, and the rock specimens they acquire during their surveys - research, you understand, that is of the utmost importance. I just hope they never become lost in space, for if they do, that would certainly mean the demise of the rest of us down here on this pretty blue Earth.

I know of the plane crash you are speaking of. From what I have surmised from the evidence the scientific response team brought back, it appears that everyone on board had become tainted by a tissue replicating microscopic creature or virus, that seems to have been thawed out from the Antarctic bio-research lab. One of my colleagues, R.J. MacReady, happened to be stationed there, but the facility was apparently destroyed. As far as we know, everyone on the flight you are speaking of was no longer human. In fact, they were all replicated creatures, now hosts to this peculiar 'Thing' parasite, which was attempting to reach the mainland, to replicate itself and become a new dominant species. Unfortunately, we have not heard back from the Biological Response team, or S.T.A.R.S. And I certainly hope that they have not fallen prey to the Nemesis Project.

I'm sure that the Resident 'Destitudes' you mention would see no Evil in that much funding going to such a charitable good cause. That is to say, I know that such a generous and overwhelming amount of money will be easy for you to ingest as it is quite understandably intangible. However, I also don't know if this will help the good citizens of Raccoon City, because of the aforementioned blight with the tissue replicating parasite, and what the widely known mega-corporation, Umbrella, decided to do with that location. It is also suspected that the large international banking and finance franchises have already become hosts to the 'Thing' virus. The John Carpenter Financial Insitution in Little China for example, as reported by Michael Myers in the popular news pamphlet - The Shape, has been plagued with reports of employees no longer behaving like themselves, and being prone to mimicking others' behaviour patterns. I'm sure you can begin to understand how this is an inconvenience.

Also, Mr. Nanga Saar, how am I to be sure that you have not fallen prey to the 'Thing' parasite yourself, and you are in fact just an alien impostor, that has replicated the real Nanga, and is now running a whole coven of hosts, bent on spreading their affliction? Perhaps you have lobster claws coming out of your wrists, and a swarm of tentacles bursting forth from your nostrils. What will happen then?

This is most unreasonable, and I am appalled that you have not even bothered to speak about Robert Paulson. His name was Robert Paulson. Do you understand? His name was Robert Paulson. Please be aware of this in future, or the integrity of your humanity will remain subject to further scrutiny. Unless I am only telling you this, because I myself, am one of them? THEY LIVE... Mr. Nanga Saar. Oh yes, they live, but for the right price, I perhaps could be willing to send you a proper occular apparatus so that you may be able to differentiate between who remains biologically intact, and who is not to be trusted, in a quantifiable manner!

I expect you to implode and for your socks to become wildly carnivorous with a voracious appetite, as you desperately try to respond urgently to this communication.
Kind regards,

Lovecraft Cthulhu

PS. Your usage of caps lock, and unfamiliarity with caps lock etiquette also raises to question if you are a pod person, or 'Thing' host. Just thought I would point this out.

Is it me? or do people enjoy making me grumpy around the holidays? :evillaugh:

UPDATE

Well, it looks like the most obvious stolen artwork has been removed from Omnibum's Zazzle shop :movingon:... However, I just wanted to share with you (since it was posted in public, anyways) a cute little tidbit that occurred, once I posted my own product (with my artwork, as you do - crazy, I know).

:work: Lord_Omnibus said 9 hours ago

ok first off i didn't know the design was yours :idea:, 2nd all u had to do was ask i would remove it, which i did, and 3rd u bashing me on deviant is bullshit :eatshit:, since i never knew the art was yours :shrug:... so i apologize for the use of your art, and srry u could not handle this in a professional way instead of being an ass :cries:.


:sarcasm:

Here's a screenshot, just so you know I'm not making this up - thedarkcloak.deviantart.com/ar…

So, here's a wise word to all you ruthless and mercyless artists out there. Take heed, lest you be black of heart and uneducated on copyright like so many an uninformed troglodyte philistine: :drool:

It is completely unprofessional - AND unreasonable, mind you - to defend your artwork from folks who would take it without prior authorization or permission to make money off your work :boo:. I mean, HOW DARE YOU?! :wow: We have to learn to respect these professional rippers who often times have no idea, that the artwork they are stealing is NOT THEIRS. I know, I KNOW! See, he never knew the art was mine (even though the website is RIGHT ON IT), and I'm sure he didn't know that Bryan Baughs artwork belonged to Bryan, or that Noistars artwork *GASP* belongs to Noistar... because it was just there.

"But gee, Mr. Cloak :O_o:," you say, "if they didn't make it themselves, should they not know it's not THEIRS because they didn't make it?" :noes: Ah, Timmy! :D Don't be so naive! :crazy:

:furious: The artwork 'was asking for it, it should not have dressed that way, and flirted :blowkiss: the way it did with me, teasing & coaxing me into taking it - because that's exactly what it wanted, and it knows it!' - because it was just 'there', and oh so obviously available! Folks, I think what we're missing here, is that the hardworking rippers, such as Omnibum, and others like him, are the real VICTIMS! :lonely:

Somewhere in all of this, there's a valuable lesson to be learned: perhaps it's that we need to learn how to have pity for these poor rippers who are only trying to make a quick buck on artwork that CLEARLY deserved to be stolen.

So please:please:... Think of the downtrodden, less fortunate rippers - such as Omnibum, and others like him. :raincloud: *insert slow motion black and white video of depressed looking internet surfer, with a melancholy tear rolling down his cheek. The camera zooming in so we can watch it fall off, flipping and twirling, sparkling in the dim sunlight peeking through the slivers in the shut blinds, before plopping & bursting with a deafening crash upon a keyboard ridden with faded letters and the stains of time.*:cling:

Next time you see or create an inspiring piece of art, think of the rippers:tears:, and the distress they must feel as they lay eyes upon said artworks, violating their right to infringe on copyright, by having the AUDACITY :jawdrop: to claim that what you create (or own for that matter) is not to be used for their personal monetary gain :buymyprints: without prior authorization!


PS. Yes, this journal is just SOAKED with copious GOBS and OODLES of sarcasm. :sarcasticclap: :bow:

:ahoy:

--------------PREVIOUSLY... ON TDC DA---------------

Ok... it's bad if you rip artwork off, but it's even WORSE if you do it THIS BADLY - www.zazzle.com/brains_shirt-23…

It's a rip off of the classic - Got Brain? thedarkcloak.deviantart.com/ar…

BUT... on the flipside, this is even further incentive for me to create a Zazzle account! :D Updates on that as it develops. :plotting:

I guess one could also look at it this way - they did such a crappy job ripping it off, I'd be amazed to hear if ANYBODY purchased that, and if the guy bought it for himself then that just serves him right, doesn't it? :stab:

Oh, and here's the culprit's shop - Lord Omnibus, eh? More like... Lord OmniBUSTED :evillaugh: haw haw! www.zazzle.com/lord_omnibus - Hmm... looks like I'm not the only one Lame Omnibuster ripped off here. Does anybody recognize the other art?

THE NERVE!

So, yeap. Today is my birthday again. Again!?!? :faint:

Anyways, I have some new treats for everybody to gawk at that I will be posting up in a little while.

Did the Crypticon thing this past weekend, and I'm still recovering from that! We had a booth there, selling art prints of the Zombie Zodiac :iconthezombiezodiac: or www.thezombiezodiac.com , and the other little surprise I'll be putting up here later, and a bunch of other artwork prints and Mia did some readings as well. Overall it seemed to go pretty decent like.

Crypticon was an awesome experience however, and I really hope they do it again next year.

Crypticon - crypticonminneapolis.com/

Doug Jones is just AWESOME (Silver Surfer, Abe Sapien, Death, Pan, etc). And he gives the best hugs this side of Abe Sapien, too. He's just a really beautiful being that just blinds you with kindness and his big heart, and he was a blast to meet & joke around with. Needless to say, the dude left a huge impression on me and that doesn't happen often. It was a treat to be able to spend some time with him.

John Kassir aka the Cryptkeeper (Tales from the Crypt), another awesome fella, very nice chap, very witty and great to talk to as well. There's nothing like hearing the Cryptkeeper talking about your art, (I did a Cryptkeeper sketch for him, and gave it to him with the catch of hearing how the Crypty would react to it) too.

Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes, original)is another amazing person to meet. The Hunter of Hunters (inside story about that) The guy is all heart, and it's great to see people like him involved in the kinds of things he is involved in (animal rescue especially). It was an honor to have our stall right next to his and hear all his stories and share our interests (Mia got to spend more time with him and helping him with things than I did, tho).

And then there's James Duval - aka Jimmy!!! VERY fun guy. He was our other booth neighbor, and a real energetic dynamo. As long as the coffee was in steady supply.

Other than that, met lots of other interesting and fun people, like the folks from Transylvania-TV (look it up, it's awesome fun), LittleSalem.com (shouts out to Jeff and mega-kudos for the killer Zombie get-up), and the Zombie Ammo crew www.zombieammo.com go check em out!

:blah:

Blah blah blah, anyways lots of stories about Crypticon, ask me about it sometime or something.

George Carlin has died... First Stan Winston, and now George, too...

"Frisbeetarianism is the belief that when you die, your soul goes up on the roof and gets stuck."

"If I had my choice of how to die, I would like to be sitting on the crosstown bus and suddenly burst into flames."

"Death is caused by swallowing small amounts of saliva over a long period of time."

"I'm always relieved when someone is delivering a eulogy and I realize I'm listening to it."

- George Carlin,

I'm just like WTF...

Who's going next week? Don't bad things come in 3's?

www.positiveatheism.org/hist/q…

:( :( :( :( :no: :no: :no: :( :( :( :(

Well, at least we can count on this:

"I don't have any beliefs or allegiances. I don't believe in this country, I don't believe in religion, or a god, and I don't believe in all these man-made institutional ideas," he told Reuters in a 2001 interview.

Carlin told Playboy in 2005 that he looked forward to an afterlife where he could watch the decline of civilization on a "heavenly CNN."

"The world is a big theater-in-the round as far as I'm concerned, and I'd love to watch it spin itself into oblivion," he said. "Tune in and watch the human adventure."


George wouldn't have wanted to RIP.

I like to think that he's somewhere causing trouble now, or watching us all going 'oh give it a rest already people!'

Or maybe he's having a sit down with 'god'. I bet that would be interesting...

Who knows what else Death has up it's shrouded wraith-like sleeve.

Maybe we should start a betting pool.

Maybe it'll be Stan Lee, or Hulk Hogan. Arnold?
Spielberg. Lucas? Aaaaaaaugh... :(

Well... enjoy the show of our demise, George. :ahoy:

Wherever you are, give em hell. Unless for some crazy reason you end up in hell, then in that case, then give em heaven!!!

:(

Well, here's a last bit of irony George has given us. He DID say Sunday would be a good day to die... video.google.com/videoplay?doc…

:(

It sucks...

I just hope the Stan Winston Studios/ effect houses can keep up the level of quality without the man himself being involved... :(

This is really sad...

The man that brought to life and made believable so many iconic creatures & characters including:

The Terminator
Predator
Aliens & Alien Queen
Edward Scissorhands
The Penguin
Pumpkinhead
the 'decomposing death' Lestat from Interview with a Vampire

and SO MANY other projects he had his creative genius applied to... including Iron Man & the recent Indiana Jones flicks...

Obviously a major influence and inspiration... RIP Stan.

Just got back from watching 'The Incredible Hulk'...

I once had a dream of a Hulk movie, more or less how I would do it, but at the same time I was somehow in it and it wasn't really a movie. It was pretty freakin' terrifying. Soldiers were screaming and shooting. Things were getting thrown, broken apart, & of course smashed beyond all recognition. I imagined the trailer for it, a pounding low pitched heart beat. The screen flashing images between black fades. And then the angry grimace of a beastial pissed off Hulk.

Well, I can tell you right off the bat that this movie really came mega-close to that dream, and at times even better... it was fucking awesome.

I was pretty apprehensive about being excited AT ALL about this movie, what with the last one, and was not sure if this was just going to be a petty attempt to right all the things that went wrong with the Ang Lee Hulk. But all in all, this movie took all the things that movie did RIGHT - like copious amounts of smashing and roaring, and a sympathetic yet terrifying godzilla frankenstein type hybrid of a Hulk - but also made them FAR FAR BETTER.

The movie plays a bit like a Bourne Identity/ Supremacy/ Ultimatum movie, with Banner being on the run, it definitely brings in all the great elements of the old Bill Bixby/ Ferigno Hulk serial, the awesome over the top moments of the Cartoon, and some of the more memorable artwork and visuals of the comic books (wait til you see him roaring at the lightning... WOW).

The other character elements and surprise appearances are fun as well. I won't spoil anything, but if you're a Hulk fan, certain references and supporting characters *coughcoughlikeacertaindoctorcoughcough* make appearances. ;)

The action. This movie is loaded with action. Sometimes it gets a bit CG heavy, but it's too gorgeous to be bothersome, and it's done BEAUTIFULLY.

The fights between the military, and the abomination are nothing short of EPIC & BRUTAL. Can you say cop car knuckles?

All in all, I give this flick a hefty **** (4/5 stars) & I highly recommend you get yourself into your local theatre, and enjoy.

Marvel Studio's is 2 for 2 so far... Damn I'm really excited to see what they come up with next.

So we had ourselves a bit of an adventure this weekend. We drove down to Louisville, KY - to visit 'one of America's most haunted places': Waverly Hills Sanatorium.

This was our first visit there, and it's a beautiful building, so busy there, and I really can't wait to go back.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waverly_… - the Wiki facts

www.therealwaverlyhills.com/ - the Real Waverly Hills site

whsmemorial.tripod.com/ - Official Waverly Hills Sanatorium/ Woodhaven Geriatric Center Memorial & Historical Resource

These are some of the best sites I've come across in regards to the historical aspect of Waverly Hills.

Well, on to the meat n' potatos of the visit. :movingon:

It was a dark & stormy night on Saturday (no really, it was, check weather.com). The mist was rolling in as we pulled up to WHS. Wow, what a special place!

Our group was nicely organized into teams of 10-12 people, each team assigned to each floor (5 floors in all) in a rotation allowing for 90 minutes per floor, per team, for investigating, etc.

Now this may sound like ALOT... but the place is ENORMOUS. It was very easy to be the only person left in one of the wings or halls whilst there. Let me just tell you that to realise that you're the only person in your area, and to hear, feel, and see things going on around you is something you will LIKELY experience here.

The place definitely feels... aware or alive somehow. It's very interesting.

Word of advice however... if you go digging around for info on Waverly, be wary of the legends and tales that have been spread - especially those concerning the eyeless girl and the suicide nurse from Room 502, read them with a grain of salt. :D

IMO, a place like this doesn't really need further embellishment to give it a wow factor... the building and the history behind it stand up quite well on their own, and being there is definitely an experience, regardless of what your beliefs are, whether you're into ghost hunting or old architecture, or just want to take some great pictures for your own artistic resources (FUN FACT: I often use textures I take photos of from haunted locations in my artwork - never really thought of sharing that info til now ;) ).

I did have a few WTF moments whilst there, the kinds of things that really throw you off and make you doubt your senses and ability to tell what's what.

Not sure yet as to whether I'll spill the beans in here just yet or not...
If you wanna hear it... just say 'kuagala painorama gecko spit' and I'll post up a few of the things here. :)

For now, I'll keep putting up some of the pictures!!! :D

OK, and now for the 'kuagala painorama gecko spit' updated journal:

AHEM... It was a dark & stormy night (again, for reals it was... wait til you see the mist picture!), and the things that bump in the night were like, 'dude, 'sup!'.

Well, we started on the 3rd floor, then worked our way through to 2nd, 1st, 5th (where the fabled Room 502 is), 4th, then back to 3rd.

First of all, if you want to see some pretty crazy photos from things we caught whilst there... head on over to Grey's scraps :iconeidolon-grey: , be sure to check out the stairway peeper shadow thing... & her descriptions.

My specific experiences there:

1 - Floor 3 - Having been there a while, I was wandering about taking photos, observing the place, resting against the walls and taking in the atmosphere, and going in and out of rooms, I did have an odd experience in one of the rooms I entered. It was interesting. I can't for a matter of integrity say that this is hands down a full fledged ghostly experience, but I will say that it threw me off. Well, as I entered this room, as I crossed the threshold of the doorway, I had an intense sensation of everything being drowned out - much like when you have your head dunked under water, the way your senses shift a little bit, and everything becomes muffled. It nearly made me dizzy & it was as if I'd stepped into some kind of 'bubble' for lack of a better term. I made myself stand there, just observing what was happening, trying to figure it out. After a minute or so had passed, things gradually returned back to normal and then nothing. Once it stopped, I had a bit of that spooked wtf kind of physical feeling as I left the room, but nothing beyond that. I didn't hear any voices, nor did I have some crazy flashing of someone else's lives before my eyes, the room didn't warp into what it used to be, Kevin bacon didn't show up suddenly talking about echoes or anything. Pretty interesting still.

2 - Floor 2 - There was one long auditorium type of room across from what used to be the kitchen that really spooked me. Mind you, I don't spook easily when we're at places like this, and I'm usually really eager to go charging into the 'scariest places' and check everything out. But this room... whoo boy. Oh, and to boot, this was one of those instances where everyone had gone to the other wing, whilst I was busy being a weirdo playing with my camera and taking crazy delayed exposure shots (I'll show you those later). So there I was, and in I walked.

It was one of those rooms where you just feel really threatened, and like something is cramping your personal space. On top of that... well, have you ever walked through a seedy side of town, the projects, the ghetto? That kind of awkward alertness that kicks in, and the instinct to contain your own space as much as you can? Well it was very much like that. This room was also quite LONG (I'd say about the length of 1 & 1/2 pro basketball courts). Well, being the stubborn head-strong youth that I am, I kept myself in there for a while, stopping now and then to take photos, and again, observe and be aware of my surroundings as much as possible, trying not to be too mindful of the intense watched feeling that was going on. I work my way through the whole room, only to discover that I could not find an exit on the other end. There seemed to be a bit of a mock office set up over there (consisting of a table, some architectural paperwork, office supplies etc; presumably this is where some of the renovation planning goes on). Because I could not find an exit... I had to turn around and go back. yeap. And walking back through was like one of the longest walks I took through that incredibly large building, all night! :rofl:

Well, much to my surprise, guess what I found as I made my way to the other wing? Yep. A small white door (brand new) that was juuuust tucked behind that office looking area. My guess is the door was installed to allow access to that makeshift planning room. Anyways, yep. Door. Tucked away. Niiiiiiiice... :evillaugh:

3 - Floor 2 (again) - Another weird experience I had on this floor really threw me off. Well, basically, often times what I will do when I'm taking pictures for 'ghost hunting' purposes, ie to see 'what's there', I'll snap the picture whilst looking over the camera, avoiding the digital view finder and it's light, if it's even on to begin with. Also to note, when we're doing these things in the dark, we also have these headlamps that go either light white or red (red lighting is better on your eyes for not affecting your 'night vision' too much). Anyhoot, so I'm working my way through the hall of one of the long wings, and stop to snap a picture. When I do so, as the flash goes off and I look around with my headlamp, I could clearly see a set of double doors a few doors down from me in the hallway. Well, naturally I start planning a in my mind if I am going to try to open the doors, or if I will simply just have to go around (which is very easy, because of how the place is built - room, main hall, more rooms, and then the large open windows where TB patients would get their sunbathing in). So I keep working my way down the corridor, and then really get thrown off when I do not run into any doors at the point I should've. Perhaps my eyes played some kind of trick on me via the shadows and similar looking walls & doorways in the room, but I tried to recreate this sensation to no avail. I also thought perhaps it happened because of where the hallways "bend", but I was still quite a way from one of the points where the corridor bends into another direction.

Either way, I don't know if double doors have ever existed at that location, but I am going to find out.

with this piece of orphaned writing. JUST KIDDING

Re-posted with permission (seriously!) from :iconeidolon-grey: - interesting thoughts on the big scandalous froo froo legislation that has everyones knickers in a twist. :ohnoes:

Orphan Works – You're probably sick of hearing about this on DA, there's basically two camps : "It's a threat!" and "People are over-reacting".

I've stayed out of it whilst doing my own research and I've finally become convinced it IS a threat. My work isn't amazing or super professional, but believe it or not I have had requests from people to use various pieces for commercial work, from brochures to album covers (seriously, I know o.O). When I've quoted my price, they have all backed off. So they have been unhappy to pay even the small fee I've asked for. Now, that's fine, I'd rather my work wasn't used then used for a pittance (which people who find work on DA seem to think you'll sell it for).

With the new Orphan Works act, they wouldn't need to ask me. They could just take it.

Sure, I could put my name on it, but they could just take it off unless I slap a big ol' ugly copyright on it. They only have to say they made a reasonably diligent search for the owner (and "reasonably diligent" isn't defined, so your guess is as good as mine there). And even if you can prove that their using your work without reasonable diligence, you can only ask them for what they would be willing to pay you for the piece, and if you DO take them to court, you're going to have to prove that they didn't make a reasonably diligent search. They don't have to prove they did, as the accuser, you have to prove that. And even then... they would only have to pay you your usual fee, under current law the fines for copyright infringement are up too $150,000.00 - that's a nice big deterrant for commercial rippers. Under the Orphan Works act, the fine is $0, and the onus is on YOU, the artist, to prove they stole the work and didn't try and find you.

So, if this bill passes in MAY, which is not very far off, all of the work on DA, for example, is vulnerable. To protect your work, you'll have to post a nice fat mark over the middle of it with your name/website info, so that no one can just edit it out. Posting high rez/quality images will be a bad idea too.

Further more (it just doesn't end...) this doesn't just apply to DA Artists, it applys to your home movies, family photo's, short stories, diary's, blogs, essays, music,  etc etc etc.

Most of us artists who try and make some little money out of our work already struggle, few of us ever really make a full living out of it. We will be crushed by the fee's required to register our work with the privately run registry companies (when you're on a low income, even $5 per work is a lot) which are the solution being proposed by the Copyright office to cover "reasonable dilligent search" requirements. So a lot of small artisans would go out of business.

The impact this bill potentially has is huge, saying it will never happen is silly, because by the time it is passed and the impacts start becoming reality, it's going to be very hard to get it changed or stopped. We need to say no NOW. Doing nothing when potential dangers like this arise is like wandering around in a thunderstorm just because you haven't seen the lightening yet. When it strikes, it will be too late to get to cover.

Please take the time to send a fax to your state and congressional representatives. You can email it, but faxes are better as their a hard copy in someone's hand. Emails are easy to delete. Here is a link to take you to the US House of Representatives and easily find out who you will need to contact - forms.house.gov/wyr/welcome.sh… - and here is a sample letter template for you - eidolon-grey.deviantart.com/ar… - Thanks to www.sellyourtvconceptnow.com/o… for the template.

If the orphan works was SOLEY for libraries and museum use, then I'd be all for it. Unfortunately it's not, it's an open act. And that is what really makes it dangerous. Even if you think to yourself "well, my work isn't all that awesome." this still applies to you, because even though you might think your work isn't worthy of someone considering it for commercial use, someone out there might, and if they do, you loose it.

Thanks for reading through all of this, and if you want to read more, with lots of legal citations and investigation, check out the link below.

Ewbollius Crapius A CALL TO TAKE ACTION...

:cries: Everyday, millions of people are exposed to a deadly epidemic of bad films... The effects of such bad films, are wasted time, PTSD, trauma, memory lapse, and sometimes, even death from the excessive shock sent to the brain, at the thought of how such horrible movies could be made...  :boo:

But now, you can make a difference.

Uwe Boll (He made those detestably unwatchable movies, House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark, BloodRayne I & II, and most recently, POSTAL, to name a few - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uwe_Boll ) apparently has said that if this petition reaches 1,000,000 signatures, he'd step out of making movies. Good riddance!  :movingon:

The petition started in April 08, it's quickly swooped up over 210,000 sigs and counting...

Help put an end to this abomination of film land and sign the petition...  :plug:

The Petition www.petitiononline.com/RRH5388…

...before it's too late, and you too, are eventually exposed to such horrid film making.

Please feel free to pass this on... it just may save some lives, or at least upto 2 hours of time which can never be regained.

RockBand -

We've been having little RockBand marathon's at our house now and then, with the T&A Duo. Green Grass & High Tides still kicks our collective asses (on Hard atm). We all alternate the guitaring and singing (usually it's down to 'oh crap who knows this song' to whom we usually throw the mic at and snag the guitar/bass from), though Tris is on drums 95% of the time. The game is a blast, worth every penny IMO... and you know... we still (*knock on wood) haven't had anything break yet, which really makes me wonder what kind playing the drunken college monkey beer fiend crowd gets upto with the 'instrument controller' peripherals... Some people must really get all 'swing the guitar over your head and bash it into the floor' kinda rock n roll playing... Also, it's really weird how some people get flamed for talking about how they like RockBand, etc esp on Youtube videos and the like... Some people are really elitist and deragatory just cause some folks are having fun with these games. Go learn how to play a real instrument you ___ & so n so &*($^*( such n such. Typical internet fuckwad behaviour at it's best (shit cock). I don't understand what the big problem is, it's just like Kareoke with buttons & scores. As someone who's a musician as well, I further don't understand what the imflammatory behaviour is all about... perhaps it's the cool way to act when you're big and tough on the interwebs & feel a burning need to compensate for something you're horribly deficient at (or you just plainly lack people skills & were raised that way). You know, playing lots of these games, I think opens up your ears to new music that you didn't know how to explore before, or perhaps tracks that you never were exposed to enough to have an appreciation for them, if you were exposed to them AT ALL that is. I think it's an awesome thing, for music, for music lovers, for people who like to have FUN, and I also think that it also encourages people to go and try to actually LEARN how to play 'real' instruments. Pretty awesome IMO. But anyways - on to the next thing.

Seekrit Prawject

It's nearing completion, we're hoping to unveil it soon, before spring is over if things go smoothly... Let me just tell you guys, the REAL LIFE research that is going into this thing is quite disgusting and down right terrifying. The kind of research that makes you go 'holy crap, nature is f*cked up!!! If this is possible... what else is possible?' :wtf:

Sick Cat

Vinnie, (here he is along with his story: eidolon-grey.deviantart.com/ar… ) the little terror cat, was coming down with something which we thought was asthma. He was having sneezing & coughing fits, but no other signs of upper respiratory (cat flu), so we were worried about him, especially given that he almost flat out died the first time he had his cat flu (which is why he sounds so gruff and weezy, like a little gremlin). We got another kitten (from the same rescue group, hoorah) we've called Marv (as in 'Is that the best you've got, you pansies?' Marv from SIN CITY), as he's got a serious & gruff little face, and he's grey & black all over, with a white slash going across his face. Pics soon. Well anyways, we thought maybe he'd caught something from this as well... but no dice. So, a vet visit later, and some antibiotics, Vinnie seems to be doing well. He also had a lesion in his mouth that the vet initially suspected could've been cancerous, but as troublesome as Vinnie is, we would'nt put it past him to have jabbed himself with something he shouldn'a, and also she said he was too young for that still (barely going on 1.5 yrs). It's not bloated and red and scary looking, it's more of a peach colour now, and seems to be healing up and not as swollen anymore. So far so good.

Music Making

Been a busy lil bee with the tweedley tweedley & dow dow dow guitar & bass playing lately. Have some really fun tracks to lay down, and scoring to do for the 'seekrit prawject' mentioned above.
Been tossing some music sketches (as in quick little recordings of composition) with Tris, we'll see what happens with all of that. It feels good to have all my gear all hooked up again, keyboards all fired up & sequencers hot to trot & at the ready for the myooziks productshuns, so that's really good.
Really looking forward to figuring out flash so I can put some images and music together as well, maybe even post some here on DA.

Work work work

Bills bills bills need paying paying paying. It's been a mad house around here the last couple of weeks. The advertising trade convention (known as TAB) has everyone kicking up a ruckus, so had some graphic projects to do, as well as some proposals to work on - it's... INSANE. But hey, we all gotta pay our dues. Hopefully work work work will translate to me being a 'rockstar artist dude' or some such production house type fiasco. It's what I wanted to be when I grew up, still working on both fronts of that. ;)

Bloody Taxes

Aaaah, nothing like owing owing owing... Not sure what the hell happened this year... but taxes SUCK. Crazy pseudo-soon-to-be-borderline-totalitarian g 0 v3rn mental insanity! Which brings me to my next point of mind bubbling journal spewing...

Feeling Restless

This: www.youtube.com/watch?v=5voW5M…

www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_HOBi… (the music on that 2nd one is annoying, just mute it).

So... looks like things are bubbling over quite nastily... which brings me to the question:

When the shit hits the fan, where's everyone fleeing to? Canada? Mexico? England? Scotland?
Any ideas?

Ron Paul, where the hell are you dude?!?! (I know he's still running, it just sucks how the media has practically blackbarred him from being in the presidential running - McCa1n is NOT the only Republican candidate as the POPular news would have you believe... UGH, so frustrating...)

We the people indeed...
