Five Nights at Marwan's by MarwanGreenCritter
Five Nights at Marwan's
So yeah, I decided to take a part-time job at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza... as one of those scary-looking mascot automatons. The job is pretty easy: kill the unlucky watchman who unwittingly took the job that night. Why? Don't ask me; even the other automatons don't tell me why. :shrug: Maybe it's a tradition or something for them.

Okay, so I got into the Five Nights at Freddy's meme. ^^; This game appears to be very popular right now. I never really intend on playing that game myself -- never really a big fan of horror games with jumpscares. :fear: But I like watching reaction videos of people playing it on YouTube. :rofl: I did mention in my Twitter that, for this Halloween, I'd become one of those FNAF automatons. Everyone else's doing it with their own characters, so I jumped the bandwagon.

Happy Halloween! :nod:

So I've watched Don't Hug Me I'm Scared

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 23, 2014, 12:39 PM
Marwan's deviantART Journal


Both the original and the sequel, that is. I found out about it immediately after :iconpitiyindee: posted a twit on Twitter about it just hours ago. Don't Hug Me I'm Scared is a series of viral videos posted by the group, This Is It. (Not to be confused with a certain Michael Jackson tribute movie.) And well... after watching those videos, I just had to discuss about it.

It is impossible to discuss my thoughts and reviews about those videos without spoiling everything, so warning, this review contains spoilers.

But let's just say this in a nutshell: if you've played Eversion, you'll get a good idea of how the videos will be like. And it's creepy. As in, Five Nights at Freddy's kind of creepy. And considering it's close to Halloween, the timing since I found out about this video series seemed almost perfect. :O You can watch those videos here: www.youtube.com/user/thisisitc… Warning: These videos are not for the faint heart.

None of the characters officially have names, so I'll use the names which fans have named them: Harry (that big red humanoid thing), Manny (that yellow guy with blue hair) and Robin (that dark green bird). And the sketchbook, Paige, and the wall clock, Tony.

Don't Hug Me I'm Scared is a commentary on children's television shows. Specifically, how these shows condition kids who watch them into believing and acting out the ideologies they want to represent. Like, "green is not a creative color." (Aw, damn! :shrug:) Or that the future "doesn't exist." These videos start out like a typical kid show, but as time progresses, they grow more and more creepy, jumping into horror movie territory. In the first video about getting creative, Harry sparkles a human heart with glitters, while Robin slices a cake which turns out to contain raw meat. All juxtaposed with psychedelic imagery and creepy sound effects. The second video, about time, is less creepy, but what really nails it is how Hairy, Manny and Robin slowly rot away from accelerated aging while Tony smugly comments on how, eventually, everyone runs out of time.

There's going to be a third video as well, to be released soon enough, as teased by the trailer, probably in just a few days from now. In fact, after their successful Kickstarter campaign, This Is It have stated that they're planning to release a total of six videos.

I admit that I did find these videos amusing, in a creepy kind of way. ^^; They parody kid shows and their predictable formats, while inserting elements of harsh realities that's far too unsuitable for kids. Other shows that do the same are the adult TV series Wonder Showzen, and Avenue Q's puppet stage shows. There's also a book called Uncle Shelby's ABZ Book, which satirizes the format of of a typical ABC book. Meanwhile, characters from Don't Hug Me I'm Scared are quite popular in the fandom; they've already gained a crapload of fanarts, especially that of Paige and "Meh Meh" Tony, who are often paired together in fanart and almost always drawn in humanoid forms.

New layout, new confusions

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 16, 2014, 9:22 AM
Marwan's deviantART Journal


A month ago, my friend :iconyuuyatails: pointed out that deviantART changed the layout of their navigation bar. It's now located to the top right corner. Back then, only a few DA members get to experience the new layout; I wasn't one of those DA members, so I was confused until he finally showed me a screenshot of his screen showing the new layout. Well, it wasn't until around 1-2 days ago that that new layout finally applies to me, too.

This will require some getting used to. :nirvana: I admit that I like the old layout, when the bar used to be a little more to the center. It's not a big deal, alright... Nothing's changed; the functionality is still the same. What's changed is that they moved the bar to the right, isolating it from the Shop and Submit buttons. I guess it's less confusing this way, though it does look slightly like an eyesore because it's in a slightly darker box. The Submit button is an even bigger eyesore because it's in a bright green box. :O_o:

What is more confusing is the way our user front pages look now. There's this new Activity widget... Apparently, only us DA subscribers have it. Well, I can remove it if I want to; it's cluttering my page. But then again, maybe I can make full use of this new Activity widget. I see some other fellow DA members certainly having fun with it. :giggle: It seems like DA's attempting to copy Twitter and Facebook. :O

New uplifting trance track: 'Follow Me'

You can now listen to it here: marwangreencritter.bandcamp.co… After over a year of writing it, I feel that this track is finish as it is.

Someday, I gotta make a better CD cover for each of my tracks. :dead:

By the way, I also want to post this journal on Fur Affinity as well, but it's currently down. :disbelief: I read that DDoS is the culprit. Again. :roll: Man, they really can't take a break... :shrug:
