I was very excited upon seeing an Operator symbol stamped envelope in my mail today! Unfortunately, they mistakenly sent me season 1 instead of season 2. Both invoices I have (from the mail and from when I ordered) were correct, so I emailed the DVD people and hopefully it'll get taken care of soon. Oh well, I wasn't going to have time to watch it until after this week anyways and I didn't need the temptation.

Watch it anyway, you'll have plenty of extra time once you stop sleeping.

B-but I already have season 1! I actually just lent it to a friend a week or so ago; maybe this will be one of those situations where she perpetually forgets to return it, but Downtown Explosions will let me keep the extra copy so it's a win-win?

God drat it, I finally get around to ordering seasons 1 & 2 and it refuses to let me pay with my husband's credit card because it's linked to his PayPal account and I don't know the password to that. loving PayPal, I seriously hate everything to do with that godawful bullshit company, and now I can't order Marble Hornets on top of it. gently caress.

Unless it takes a week before you see your husband again, you're probably going to be able to get his PayPal password before they send out the second wave.

Good god, that hidden bonus is utterly fantastic. It was everything I hoped it'd be, and more.

The quality on the entries looks great, and the only complaint I have is a few menu glitches. That by no means is me saying this is bad. This is probably my favorite purchase since my Doctor Who blu-rays a few months back.

Volume posted:

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

Since Jay's face is painted or something, it could be argued that Masky was showing him that Slenderman just walks right on by if someone isn't identifiable.

Kinda. Maybe.

And the frame is somewhat steady compared to many other shots in the series, perhaps indicating the camera was just left on a tripod to run since Masky knew Slenderman would happen on by.

If you accept that Masky may have the manners of a labrador retriever puppy, the charging forward at full speed thing can be seen as a clumsy attempt to be of assistance.

Really, if Masky was a malicious presence, he would have just killed Jay outright when he was hanging around his room. Instead, he was doing Batman poses and swinging his feet like some sort of innocent child.

This has been my assumption. Something about wearing a mask interferes with the Operator's ability to to perceive or identify you, or makes him ignore you. I think it was Tim telling Jay to mask up. This is also why, the first time they Jay met him as Masky, when Jay knocked Tim on his rear end and tried to unmask him, Tim freaks the gently caress out. He's terrified that Jay will unmask him in a place which is Slendy-friendly or whatever.

Yeah that's always how I've taken Return, a not-so-subtle hint to Jay that he should really just put on the drat mask. Tim even leaves him one hanging on a doorknob in a future entry but Jay doesn't take it.

Random, but why did I just receive $12 sent to my paypal from Downtown Explosion and immediately afterwards a charge for $24?

[edit] I'm assuming it might be to charge the difference on S+H, but the postage only said $3.25 on the envelope so I don't see why I'm being charged an extra $12?

Just out of curiosity - who writes the twitter feed? I always just presumed it was Jay's actor because I picture this stuff happening to Jay, but that's obviously a fairly silly way of doing it, so I'm guessing it's Troy?

Troy plays Jay, so both answers are probably right!

Edit:

Jay posted:

The empty room I was in last time is just full of books now. Didn't see that weird painting anywhere either. http://pic.twitter.com/85gHGXG3

Going into that room seems like a very bad idea, so hopefully that'll be his next move.
