Sorry.

It's no problem at all! I was in a hurry trying to get done before work! I plan on doing a better synopsis and such too.

Also: ordered my Season 2 DVD today! I'm very excited. I can only hope the commentary on it is as awesome/funny as Season 1's.

Whaaat? I was really proud of "Hello? Operator?" because I'm not actually funny in real life.

I honestly don't understand all the hate that Slenderman stuff gets. Yes, it has become a thing people talk about - but its generally confined to its own threads or threads talking about paranormal stuff or 'PYF thing that scares you'. Heaven forbid someone mentions Marble Hornets somewhere between the twentieth and thirtieth reference to number stations.

I thought we all agreed that it looked like Alex was sacrificing people to the Operator.
Yeah, this does fit well with the end of series 2. I still like the thought that the Operator is controlling (or operating, heh) them though. I feel it works well with the periods of time where characters blank out and are recorded doing various things they have no memory of - Jay getting up in his sleep and vanishing out of his bedroom door for a few hours, for instance.

What?

I'm making things interesting!


I just built up this theory in my head that the thread title got changed by a mod that is kind of the outcast of the rest of the mods so the second he saw a new Marble Hornets thread pop up, he squealed with delight as he renamed the thread then PMed ALL the other mods and was like "Look! Look! Funny amirite?!" and they all just turned away and got back to doing whatever it was they were doing. Now I'm sad for that mod...

Also I think I've been watching too many of the comedy videos on Troy's channel because the squeal I imagine is the exact same one as the one from Tim Opens a Present.

Seeing as we're going to be waiting for Season three for a while, let's go about entries of the past instead!



This is a screencap from Slenderman's appearance in the entry #26 (The one that featured Amy, for those who don't remember) To this day, I still feel that this was potentially the best jump scare in the series. it really got me at the time and the fact that Amy continued to be jumpy and run around after she saw Slenderman, making the camera wave around a lot to disorient the viewer as much as possible kept the adrenaline pumping and the moment going.

But then I went to look at the episode a second time and everything just seemed completely wrong. I can't tell exactly what it is, but something about this Slenderman puppet just irks me. It seems to be a lot taller than the puppet used in earlier entries, but also has a much broader build and wider pants. The head is bent forward slightly and looks kinda dopy and the arms just make him look like he's striking a silly pose!

I can't help but theorize that because the MH crew started using a better camera for later entries, they had to make a different puppet because the one they had been using since Entry #1 would just look really fake when filmed with a clearer camera. But this puppet just looks weird and far too much like an actual puppet instead of some strange creature.

But hey, at least it's not the Slenderman Puppet used in episode 5 of EverymanHYBRID! vv

Supposedly, Warner Music Group's copyright on Happy Birthday to You is bogus and filled to the brim with holes. Read a little more on that in this article if you have the time:

http://www.slate.com/articles/arts/...r_birthday.html

You could probably re-tune the notes hit on "hap" and "py" to be the exact same note and get away with calling it a parody of Good Morning instead!

So I've been rewatching Marble Hornets and now I'm even more confused. Jump cuts happen around the supernatural stuff right? I've seen Slendy and Masky/Tim both set them up. But in Season 2 it seems that Masky/Tim is working against Alex who himself is not working at at least under control of Slendy.

The jump cuts with Masky in Season 1 make it seem like he's gonna be the main villian. If he's been working against Slendy why does he lure J back to Brians house and Slendy?

Masky never lured Jay back to Brian's house, he went exploring on his own. As far as we know, Masky is working against the Operator and trying to protect Jay.

Someone gave Jay an anonymous tip about Brian's old house, though. It's hard to imagine it was anyone but Tim, no one else even knew Jay was looking for Alex. But that doesn't totally explain why he then tried to beat the poo poo out of/scare away Jay once he did show up.

Could have been Alex trying to lure Jay there to stop him from looking into it, and Tim could have been watching out for him to protect him.

Well my main worry is the Return Video, shows Jay slumped in a corner of a house with Slendy turning the corner. Posted by ToTheArk who I think J also assumes to be masky. So that video tells me that ToTheArk/masky was filming for Operator.

Masky does seem to have taken a more benign personality in Season 2 but he clearly has a malicious presence in Season 1

That's possible too, although it seems like by that point Alex is long gone and living with Amy in another city. But that's the fun of MH...we STILL really don't know poo poo despite having watched it for almost 3 years now

Bloopers were short and ended up being, well, par for bloopers. But then I decided to watch a few episodes with commentary and LOVED IT. Lots of cool insight into the filming and behind the scenes stuff. Hope I can get caught up with school so I can sit down and watch them all the way through.
