My Cat’s Poem

Greetings from quarantine! Wish I had more new to post since March, but COVID-19 hasn’t been the creative motivator I initially expected. All I can offer in the meantime is something my lovely she-cat Snowfall (whom I don’t believe I’ve mentioned outside of Twitter before) wrote the other month… or so one must assume. 😉

VLOGGIN’ IN #6 – “The Invisible Man” (2020) | WHITE BUT NOT TRANSPARENT

 

Put on my full-body bandages and fake nose for a Saturday at the cinema with the new Leigh Whannell Blumhouse/Universal movie monster horror film “The Invisible Man”!

tl;dw: It starts off a bit predictable and ends with some plot holes, but overall it’s a fantastically shot, scored, and acted sci-fi thriller that ironically deserves to be seen.

All non-me media from Google Image Search or Adobe Premiere Elements. I know I fell off the wagon with movie reviews, but I’m hoping to get back on in time for the season of renewal that is Spring!

Also, an invisible man walking sim would be incredibly easy to program, now that I think about it.

“Monkfish” | Creepypasta Reading

A short and sinister creepypasta reading culled from the old depths of /x/ once more for Fear Awareness Month!

Music: “Beneath the Endless Ocean,” by Dirty Knobs. Can reupload a capella if this gets DMCA’d.

“Darkness” | Creepypasta Reading

As #FearAwarenessMonth rolls on, a short and sweet #creepypasta reading about… well, the title says it all. Or does it?

Original author: Anonymous

Music: “The Minotaur’s Breath,” by Dirty Knobs. Can reupload a capella if this gets DMCA’d.

“The Lacquer Mummy” – Creepypasta Reading

With Fear Awareness Month over halfway done, I figured there was no time to waste in uploading another creepypasta reading! This time, a piece I found many moons ago on /x/ called “The Lacquer Mummy,” attributed to one “HFPS”. Turn down the lights, turn up the volume, and enjoy!

Long-form “illustration”: Me

Music: “Aokigahara Forest” by IO Echo, from the Ghost in the Shell soundtrack. Will reupload a capella if that gets DMCA’d.

VLOGGIN’ IN #5 – “Gemini Man” (2019)

Decided to *double down* on a Thursday night and see Gemini Man in all its 3D, high-frame-rate, uh… glory? tl;dw: If you can find somewhere to watch it like a normal movie, it’s a generic but fun scifi-action romp.

All non-me media from Google Image Search or Adobe Premiere Elements/Movavi Video Editor. Trying something a little different this time to find my “voice” for content creating. I tend to overthink a purely written script, but I also tend to ramble when it comes to ad-libbing. Hopefully this can be a step towards striking a unique balance!

Also, everybody hates cilantro.

The Top 7 Micro-Creepypastas #5

Text of all stories can be found at http://scparchive.wikidot.com/archive. No clue on any of the authors, but credit where it’s due in general!

All illustrations by me except the Home Insurance Building picture. See more of my (less eerie) photography on my Instagram @TNW24 !

VLOGGIN’ IN: “Joker” (2019)

Survived a “preview” screening of Joker on Thursday night, so I had to do my duty as a gamer and rise up with a front-seat review!

tl;dw: You’ve seen it all before, but never quite like this in a comic book flick–maybe not worth rushing out, but certainly worth checking out.

All non-me media from Google Image Search or Movavi Video Editor. Bad audiovisual quality this time can be blamed on Movavi being the poorer man’s Premiere than ever before; the exporter wouldn’t work so I had to screencap the laggy preview in OBS. Going to switch back to Team Adobe soon, promise.

Also, where are all those rioters getting their clown masks? It’s the ’80s, so it should be easy for the cops to just question whoever’s stopping by the pharmacy to grab one. Iunno.

VLOGGIN’ IN: “Rambo: Last Blood” (2019)

“Vloggin’ In” continues with a belated take on my week-ago viewing of “Rambo: Last Blood”! (technical difficulties were had). tl;dw: It ain’t much, but you can do a lot worse as far as bloody old-man action flicks go.

All non-me video and audio from Google Image Search or Movavi Video Editor. May need to flip the poster to throw copyright bots off the scent.

Also, there was one part where Rambo literally just drives through a waist-high border fence without incident, so maybe *that* was a little iffy.

VLOGGIN’ IN: “Ad Astra” (2019)

Caught a Thursday night showing of the new Brad Pitt sci-fi movie “Ad Astra” and decided to pitch my two cents into the meaningless void of outer space with a driver’s seat recap!

All non-me video and audio from Google Image Search or Movavi Video Editor. May need to flip the poster to throw copyright bots off the scent.

Censorship blur was originally only supposed to coincide with my suggestive joke about space antennae, so perhaps my editing software is judging me by prefacing the video with a blur of my face as well.
