I’m feeling Jennings-like. I would really like to know who the hell put this on my door today.
this is the arrow of destiny. reblog this and see what comes up next. this person/saying/thing will have something to do with your future
omfg i got a couple in bed god bless life
last time I reblogged this i got cereal so I can’t wait to see what I get this time
I’m foretelling either dungeon porn or Macklemore.
OK, look. It has been scant minutes since I watched “March 21st”, so I admit, I am pretty wound up. But I doubt the majority of these feelings will change. Let me get this straight: Vin is concerned because in “a couple weeks” he has not seen um, I guess, the type of “progress” he’d like to, so he wants our opinion on whether or not to “summon the thing.”
How’s that supposed to work?
“Yo, HABIT! What up? Slide over, bitch.”
Aside from the intriguing logistical issues - how does one invite that which has terrorized, maimed, killed your loved ones? I don’t mean “how” exactly- I am sure we’ll find out. I mean, How the fuck can you even contemplate that, Vinny? And, this makes it so rich….”at least he talks.”
Well I have always thought a drop of witty repartee was worth losing one of my best friend’s souls. Easy trade off to make.
What do I think? I think, don’t tempt fate, Vin. I think, please don’t do that to Evan, you may not get him back this time. I think your idea of whipping out the Ouija board, or having a seance there among the pinball machines in the basement is fucking INSANITY, Vin. Just one man’s opinion.
So now I am wondering….
You had that cool conversation, or that hard talk, or that emotional back and forth, and then, you left. And down the block, you realized the PERFECT rejoinder. But it’s too late, now isn’t it. You’re gone. More importantly, the moment is gone. That’s L’esprit de l’escalier. My French teacher called it “the loss of the moment.”
So last night I’m thinking, “who lost the moment.” Who had the witty thing to say and didn’t get the chance? I think I have my answer, but I caution you, it’s only mine, and my answer is personally prejudiced, based on what I would like to see.
Turn back the page to Halloween Hangover, or I’m OK, or several other entries. Then move forward to Moving In and Colon D. Who didn’t get a chance to speak? Who do we see, for just a moment, in honest, grinning, happy flashback, just prior to his immolation? Whose “esprit”?
Jeff’s, I believe.
He said, and I quote, “….any of us…”. He did not say, “you and me.” Which would refer to Vin and Evan. He said, “any of US.”
That would lead you to believe that we might see Jeff, alive, Jeff. And that feels like a possibility, remember I’m the charter member of the “He’s not dead” club.
But like this??? Is this what I want? What we want? This horrid, never-ending, mind-fucking STUCK?
Never let go? Is that where we are.? I am not a religious man (which is not to say I don’t have faith) but Dear God, spare them from a cycle of knowing and living with a ceaseless understanding of “my loved ones are dead” and, “I killed them.”
No, Evan, it does NOT look like you have suffered. And isn’t that the irony? You get to live with it, whole. You get to relive the memories.
Holy crap. Does anyone remember the end of “the Princess Bride”. “To the pain”? That is what we have here.
What an amazing week of film. Wow.
If you reblog this by January 31st I will submit to you the color that you remind me of based off of your blog , with a color swatch and I will include the hex number for said color. I will also include three descriptive words that come to mind when I see your blog.
Stunning, Anxious, Questionable.
So be sure to leave your submit box open.
Call me naive, stupid, tell me I wear rose colored glasses. Say I’m not paying attention. I do not care.
For the time being, I am the founder, charter member, president, whatever of the “He Is Not Dead” club.
No offense to Vin, but I do not think that Vin can save Evan. I think only Jeff can, or Evan himself, and to that end, I’m holding out hope that Jeff is, at this moment, really badly fucked up, but not dead.
Let’s not forget: The Doctor Is IN. He believes there is a way out, a viable end,and has told Vin so, and even brought Vin to the point of witnessing him shooting Slendy. Do I think the shots had any effect? Hell, No. That’s not the point. I don’t think it was the Doc’s point, either. I think the Doc’s point was to say, “Fight. Believe with everything you have, that there is good in the world and it can be a powerful force.”
I am reminded of the literary references and precursors to EMH, and still, I think, “No. He is alive.”
Because, there’s just been so much chaos, so much blood, so much loss, so much mayhem, it seems entirely unfair that Jeff would not survive. Again, maybe that’s just naive, but I am hopeful.
And I wait.
So I just got turned on to this Podcast called DisDads which is, like it sounds a community of fathers who take their kids to Disney World.
Mea culpa: if I am supposed to be posting this somewhere else, let me know, it isn’t my intention to bore Slender-items with Magic Kingdom crap if I am not supposed to.
anyway, they are having a competition sort of like March Madness where they have one Disney attraction against another and they sort of argue it out and see what attraction moves on and to get to the Final Four they have Wishes vs. Pirates of the Carribean.
How am I supposed to pick one of those over the other? Heart wrenching beautiful nighttime fireworks spectacular with a flying human fairie vs. iconic time honored never gets old best SMELLING ride at WDW….
What would you vote for?
Now, I don’t think that’s fair, Anon. We were all once new. Would you want to join a fandom that is exclusive to it’s older members? Not I. I’ve been with the Marble Hornets Fandom for almost the entire time of it’s premiere, and I even can’t think of how singling out newer members can be beneficial. I actually find the tag enjoyable. Seeing new people freak out over old scares is refreshing. Us older members can have a problem with being “conditioned” so much that we don’t have that jump.
Which, now that you have mentioned it, I think it’s time to address something that I have been seeing people complain about in this fandom way too much:
It is a good thing that Marble Hornets is gaining popularity.
“What are you saying, DoH?! Blasphemy! We were such a tight knit fandom! Why would you want to ruin that?!”
Because Marble Hornets seriously an underrated piece of art.
Troy, Tim, Joseph, and everyone else involved in it’s production have put forward so much effort for the past three years in making Marble Hornets what we know it is today. It deserves all the recognition it is getting, and more. We forget too often that Troy has ambitions to be a director, Tim (I believe) recently switched to study film, and Joseph, although not in film, has a big creative side in other areas, like music, and has co-directed MH. Marble Hornets being popular is a fantastic thing for their futures, so who are we to try to suppress that because we want to be a “tight-knit” group?
Also, on the idea of more people, in my opinion, that means more friends. I have so many friends now because of Marble Hornets.. people I can’t live without and I talk to every single day. Why kill the opportunity to make new ones? Also, you’ve seen the Marble Hornets Confessions. MH has gotten some fans through some seriously difficult times by providing an outlet or a distraction. When Marble Hornets Season 1 was ongoing, it was a really difficult time for my life, and I owe it to Troy, Tim, and Joseph for providing a distraction during it, and meeting friends to help me through it. I would be a horrible person for trying to single out others who might need the exact same thing.
So to answer your question, No. Never. I refuse to single out anyone. I welcome everyone and hope they will love MH as much as we do, and will enjoy all it’s horrors, all the fandom jokes, and make a lot of friends within it.
QFT. Don’t be dicks to new fans. Everyone’s theories are equally wrong. :V
I’m pretty sure most of us are guilty of posting/tweeting something about Marble Hornets scaring us. I know I am.
Sure, there’s more “omg not gonna sleep tonight lol” posts in the tag because more people are watching it. That’s a good thing. You should be happy for the creators because Marble Hornets is becoming more and more popular.
There’s absolutely no problem with a bigger fan base.
I think it’s really unfair in any fandom to discriminate against newer members. Saying someone is annoying or “not a real fan” because they appeared after event X is fucking stupid.
We all get annoying. We all have stupid theories. We all gush bullshit about the brotrinity both in and OOG.
As long as you’re not in the tag yelling about how MH isn’t scary, or is crap, or Tim’s fat (which is a whole different ball of wax that enrages me to no end), we’re friends! Drop a theory in my askbox! I’ll address it as best I can, and we’ll be frands :D
A painting can be almost anything to anyone. Maybe the road is one walked by someone named Vin. Or it could lead to a park where someone named Noah biked. To me, it looks like the field, just missing a particular fence, where a tree-climber heard his name yelled: Green! It could be anywhere, I suppose. Right outside your door….
Went painting with dad’s girlfriend! Whatcha think?
