This week on Sire: Susan listens to some music.
Happy with this week’s page. As far as surrealism goes, it’s not outside the box or very inspired. But it is what I wanted to draw, and I find it to be soothing. It’s nice to be satisfied, occasionally, with what you make.

This week on Evil Plan…

stkbayfield:

British video games are weird, man. Here is James Pond 2: Codename Robocod. A Christmas themed adventure with a lawyer friendly version of the RoboCop theme playing over and over. There are commercials for British chocolate biscuits/cookies and the greatest animated intro since Bananaman.

I love my country so much.

This is it. This is the best fanart ever. Everyone can go home now.

Chelsea has seen the show through a few times and has a BA in English (this is what she does with it.)

Alexis knows so much about Zim that she might be legally considered dead. She’s read all the unmade scripts, trading cards, side info, commentaries, and probably a gross amount of fanfiction.

In Dark Harvest, we talk about subtle horror established by angle, color, and sparseness, mention our charity: the Association to Prevent Head Pigeons and speculate on the real reason Dib’s head is so BIG.

Hey guys I need your help spreading this on social media so our people in Ferguson can defend themselves from attacks from the police.

This is important to add. When constructing this make sure the elastic to secure the bottle to the top of your head does not puncture the plastic or if it does the rubber needs to cover it. Also, make sure you keep it tight to your head as the gas only needs a small cap and tear gas can irritate greatly in small concentrations. (it can be flammable in high concentrations.) I would recommend diving goggles for your eyes as well as doing your best to ensure the bottle fits tightly against your forehead, jaw, cheeks, and chin.  Also if you can make sure the elastic can be tightened and loosened, this will help with sealing out the tear gas.

Additionally, mixing a 50 percent solution of liquid antacid (like Maalox) and water in spray bottles soothes and treats the external and internal burning associated with tear gas and pepper spray. Keep it with you or with your group.

According to newssafety.org (a safety site for journalists and reporters), ”The acid contained in the vinegar does not provide enough, if indeed any, protection to counter the effects of tear gas." So while there is a chance that it is better than nothing, please remember that a gas mask like this might only buy you a little time. The diving/swimming goggles are a great call, and if you can get your hands on one, a dry dust mask is a good idea too.
Whatever you do, do NOT wet a bandana with water and tie it to your face. According to that same site: “Many RCAs come in the form of crystals, which react with water. Using small amounts of water (such as a wet handkerchief) immediately after exposure to CS gas is likely to reactivate these crystals and may prolong the effects.”
Contact lenses, lotions, makeups, and anything else you might smear on your face can also trap tear gas. Clothing will also hold onto it, so if you can get safe, get washed and changed as soon as possible. Your clothing may require several washes before it is safe to wear again, if ever.
I’m not an expert on these things, but I tried to do a cursory fact-check before reblogging this. Sometimes all you can do is pass along information, so let’s try to make sure we help as much as possible by double-checking.

So, watching P.T. I want to start theorizing right away.

The game will be called Silent Hills and besides the tried and proven fact that adding S to a title makes it a better movie (if Alien) or at least better than the spin-offs (Predator), I think the name and gameplay of P.T. leads to the inevitability that this game will take place in multiple dimensions of Silent Hill.

Think instead of shifting from Real>Fog>Hell you’ll be doing the Bioshock Infinite version of world jumping.

Which means instead of the tried and tested “I killed [person]” or “I’m not who I think I am” tropes that Silent Hill has done to death, this time we are playing as the character with knowledge that he DID do horrible thing… but it was an alternate version of him. The game allowing us to explore the psyche of a man who would murder their family and why they would do that.

Our version of him would never do that.

Would he?

Graaaah. Yes. This is a solid theory. The trailer for the teaser has quotes like “I saw me walking in front of myself.” And PT itself states “The only me is me. Are you sure the only you is you?”

The whole time I was watching PT, I couldn’t stop thinking of Alex de la Iglesia’s La habitación del niño/The Baby’s Room, where a father sees a figure sneaking into his infant son’s room every evening, and eventually finds footage of himself standing over the crib with a knife. Spoilers here: There’s some parallel universe stuff going on, and while it doesn’t resolve with as much explanation as I might’ve liked, it did succeed in keeping me up at night, wondering about the differences between the protagonist and his double.

There are few things more annoying than dreaming about something new and exciting, only to have a friend or figure of authority say “No, no no, that’ll never happen. You’re just not that type of person.” Well, who the fuck are they, telling you what you can and can’t be? Maybe you will go on that trip or get that tattoo (eheheh) and that will show them and you will have stepped outside that box and defined yourself by your own, unexpected actions.

But there’s a deep well of terror in that same line of thinking. Who says you won’t suddenly do something awful, too? If you can’t hide behind “I’m not that type of person,” then how can you be sure? What if you have a Killing Joke-esque One Bad Day, and you snap? I mean, how does someone become abusive or cruel? Where is the line drawn when someone becomes evil? How do you know you will never cross it?

Well, that’s horror for you. And if you let your imagination stray to these worries, then you’re cognizant of your cruelties, which (in my opinion, and VERY generally speaking) is much healthier than assuming that you’re some good little angel that could never do any wrong.

So I’d love if we could get a game dealing with that sense of horrid potential. No idea if they’ll take that route, but it’s fun to ponder.

Hideo Kojima is the cutest movie fan in the world. I wish I could be like him.

Alan Wake – Dreamy Cherry Pie & Drowning in Darkness Coffee

I’m a long time David Lynch fan, and surprisingly Lynch is probably one the biggest influences on videogames, and in particular, the survival horror genre. I’ve waited almost 10 years for a definitive edition of Twin Peaks to be released, and now it’s finally available on Bluray. Coincidentally, being a David Lynch fan means being a fan of cherry pie, and damn fine coffee. Pie and coffee crop up as homage to Lynch in numerous survival horror games, but the most iconic for me is the Dreamy Cherry Pie available at Triple D’s Oh Deer Diner in Brightfalls, from the vastly underrated Alan Wake. Served with a blacker than black Drowning in Darkness Coffee, of course.
