So. . . hmm. . . what to do first :/
Marble Hornets has been going away with uploading their videos. Little ole' Jay is surprisingly enough STILL going through those damn tapes that he found in the motel (the same day he was attacked by Masky, who decided to show up for the first time since he had a game of hide and seek with Jay in Brian's house). I've been going through the entries at every possible chance I have Youtube, and so far it's basically everything that Jay forgot between about. . . Entry #22 and the time he drove off to the motel. At the end of Entry #51, it goes all the way BACK to Entry #22 - you know, the one where Alex is giving his goodbye speech, including his tale of how Brian has disappeared (who was actually dragged off by Slendy in an old abandoned building, after being ambushed by Alex). So in Entry #22, he either A.) lied, or B.) lost his memory and is telling the story as best as he can.
EverymanHYRBID. . . still not following them much, although I've been doing a bit of research on HABIT (i.e. THESEVENTRIALSOFHABIT - the Seven Trials of HABIT - which was uploaded as a challenging video from HABIT to the everymanHYBRID crew and a bunch of other folks). People are still trying to figure out what HABIT really is - may he/she/it be someone like ToTheArk or The Observer where they upload videos to challenge the group, or even an entire other entity, like the Rake. Although, that's what I really hate about everymanHYBRID - they tie WAY too many myths into their story. The Slender Man, yes, very cool, because everyone loves that. Then the Rake. . . yeah, I guess we can deal with it because to us, although it has no connection to the Slender Man whatsoever, it's like a 'pet' for the Slender Man - when the Slender Man plays his mind games and doesn't kill you until he gets bored of you, the Rake goes right ahead and rips your eyeballs out of your body and such, so he can be considered Slender Man's 'weapon' per-say (although I'm pretty sure I talked about the Rake being Slender Man's personal weapon-monkey before, so I'm just going to stop now).
Hmm. . .
M. Gotta talk about him. He's back up posting regular updates every once in a while. He got contact from James again, although he doesn't seem all that happy (although he's not the 1st person to be mad at M - just look at the comments on his posts). So James is alive, which is great to hear. He's on another hiatus though, so I can't we can't expect much from M right now. I don't blame him. I'd like to get another email from him soon though.
I shit ten tonnes of bricks when I watched the new Tribe Twelve video that was posted recently. Another Observer video, entitled, INTERRUPTION, was posted just a few days ago - almost all the comments were about how the end caused most people to piss and/or shit their pants (watch the video, and you'll see what I mean - it's smooth sailing at the beginning, but at the end, it all just goes out the window O.o). There was also a video posted before that, entitled, "Device Findings". Noah finally plugged in the device he found laying around his house into his computer, which lead a recording to start that had mysteriously 'known' what was going on (who knows, it may have just been spoken through a mic directly, not a recording - with a device like that, who knows?) Very shortly after the video had been uploaded, someone had managed to figure out what sender was saying to Noah, as some of it is very much indecipherable due to the voice.
The following is what was spoken to Noah through the device:
Hello, my child. I see you've found my little toy. Took you long enough. About 4 months? *makes clicking sound with tongue* I was beginning to think you'd never find it. Good thing you're not as deaf as you are stupid. You shouldn't have cut those wires, there is more to be found. But I'm being unfair. Perhaps, you just need another little... ah... lesson, like the one you got at the Nature Trail. Would you like that? Shh... shh... *chuckle* But we will teach you so much. Who all those eyes belong to.... We shall teach you their names. About that forest... yes... that forest you were in. Under its branches the rain runs red. *another laugh* Would you like to know where you went? Would you like to know why? Perhaps you'd like to know why Milo committed suicide? Or rather, how I helped him do so. *clicks his tongue again* Language, Mr. Maxwell. The walls have such sensitive ears. *long sigh* We want only to remove those festering sutures from your eyes... are you so afraid of sight? A brief lesson, from your own world. You, and everyone you've ever known, are prisoners... bound in a cave and facing a blank wall on which you can only perceive shadows. A brain connected to eyes and nothing more. We have seen what casts those shadows, Noah Maxwell. Why won't you let us untie you? You are quite deserving, after all. *inhale* The Boardwalk. Bring the journal. That is your homework. However, if you come empty handed, we shall be forced to take... disciplinary actions. Perhaps another detention? *lip smacking sounds* Until then, I will continue my... observations. Pleasant dreams, Noah. *laugh*
So as you can see, this device has actually been in Noah's house for a good four months, which is a little (a lot) scary.
Oh, and I had been wondering this for a good while - if you watch the INTERRUPTION video, you'll probably hear this song at the end that's obviously reversed. I recently found out that it's the song "Mr. Sandman" which I find kind of funny because Noah has a "Sanderman" poster on his wall (why must people make Slender Man references at the beginning of their videos without them knowing about it?). I also watched Noah's trip to hang with the HYBRIDS today. It's great to see runners working together. I wish I could meet up with you guys, but I'm stuck here in the boondocks of Atlantic Canada, so until I'm living on my own with a car, I really can't move (no matter how much I want to right now with my fucked up family).
I recently started to watch DarkHarvest00's vids. Yashiro showed them to me, and I was surprised to see that he had put videos up. I'm familiar with DarkHarvest's activity on blogger and his green-faced "gimme twenny dollahs" Slender Man profile pic, but I had no clue he had a Youtube account with such a high number of vids on it. And so far, I gotta say that his videos are the most compelling I've watched so far. They actually show the dead people and torn up bodies that vloggers/bloggers tend to talk about but never actually show. But now I'm sounding like some sick movie critique, so I guess I'll just shut up now. Even if you're not doing vids anymore, I'll continue to keep my eyes open for you guys. Good luck.
I also did a video recently. Just an introductory one using Yashiro's camera. I'll try to upload it to Youtube, if I can. If not, then I'll consider myself lucky, because last thing I want is Slendy to be appearing in my videos. I'm free and I should be happy for it, so I'm not going to test it. Free and crazy out of my fucking mind, but free none of the less. If you don't count my stupid family, that is. Jesus Christ, I can't wait to get out of my damn house. I don't know what's more horrific, living with my family or getting chased down by the Operator.
As for my new runner friend, Shiniva. . . Myr? Goddammit, can't spell her last name, it's something extraordinarily weird, like how Arnold Schwarzenegger is the only damn person on this planet who actually HAS that last name without it being a penname O.o It's one of those names -_-' Anyways, she's alive too, and has been sending me emails too, some more disturbing than others. I'd share them with you, but unfortunately she made me swear in each email to delete every single email that I send her. I think it's just for her own security. I may start writing down the emails she sends me, but whether or not I'll share them with you is up to me. I don't want to break whatever trust Shiniva has with me.
Alright, that's it for now, Runners. I don't know when I'll get my internet back, but until then, stay safe, and keep in touch. Peace be with you fuckers.
