The Last Hilarity

***************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************



The door is closed now. Goodbye and thank you to those of friendships.
To many of you have kept me afloat through some of my darkest days,
and kept me smiling, laughing and strong. There should be medals
pinned to your chests for it. You wont be forgotten, especially when
I need to think of something to smile about. Wish to return fully sometime,
but only time and luck will dictate that now. And to those with vendettas,
games , illusions and other silly notions, and i say this all harshly but with
care intended, they belong solely to you now, though they always did and
you would  have known had you taken the hard route and just talked and listened.
Hope the newly over-inflated ego works out better than being real, as
living as a lie, what else can you really be. Your friends liked you for you,
why try to go out and ruin it and make yourself out to be cheap and shallow?
no good will come of that in the end, and your actually more fantastic as
the real you that you think isn't impressive enough.
I tried to end the fight with civility long ago, wasn't just for my benefit alone.
You were only fighting with yourself in reality, i tried to reach you.
Think on it.

to those who stay true...been a hard ride this year I'll say
that much, but thanks to those who rode shotgun.
Never lose yourselves. This world needs you too much.
  

dedication to the ones in the stars. it must be dark in space.
  


adding war to war never brings peace, just more war.
retaliation is a hard line to cross without stepping back into the fire again.
the fastest way to beat the game is not to play it.
- Catman 11/28/10 signing off. for the adventure.

Standing Up With A Little Help From Clarity

for whom it concerns.
passing through closing up things in my Inbox. noticed a few words of concern here for me.
don't worry, ive survived crazy worse, i mean that. i'm still going on an adventure across the country, and stopping in my hometown to see old friends and family, so i will be plenty occupied. as well i'm pretty good at stepping back and reanalyzing things and seeing outside the box. sorry for giving anyone a scare but it was a lot of compounded stuff, particularly though a breakdown from seeing to much death this season of the year. going on to bigger and better things and becoming them. also feel bad for being so focused internally in the case i started depressing anyone else. i forgot in my blindness that there is a whole world full of great people like all of you momentarily, and that's a good reason to stay strong. plus the anti-depressants the doctor gave me are helping some (why are the curtains breathing...hmmm?). worry not for Cat. still leaving site in four or so days, due to to much pain when seeing the other party involved, and to step off as my presence appears to upset them, and i cant say i don't disagree with their reasoning. in truth, they were just begin themself, and i was the one that expected otherwise from them selfishly, regardless of tragedy i was being bent by at the time, i put my feelings first. hopefully with me out of the picture they're stress can dissipate a little. be checking my tower for the next two or three days in case anyone needs anything, feel free. hope to return someday drama-less, and get back to the important business of posting random things that make no sense.

- care for each other, your a family here. 

 maybe?

Animitronics Study

 I'm not big on being superstitious. That being said this came about awhile back when i pretty much scoffed
at the idea of real life Terminators, or robots infiltrating us. During that conversation I was reminded of my
deep psychological fear of animitronics as a result of having a bad incident with a "Babe Ruth" one as a child. 
i did a bit of extensive research on the subject, hoping to get a better understanding of the science and unravel  
some of my own fears. I can say what i've found is fascinating and somewhat unnerving still. i picked out the videos 
that seemed the most interesting for this blog. enjoy.

to start off here are some basic animitrons. there are many, many more vids like this linked to these.
these are very commonly used in special effects.

 

 

 

now i'll move to some that a bit more innovative. the purpose of the next batch is to try and make something
that can pass itself off as a human being.

 

 

 

not bad. now here's where it starts getting real crafty. the following animitrons are AI. these are designed with the ability to simulate thinking.
one of the functions of these is to be reactionary to what they observe, adding to the realism.
 

building on that, Jules here is being taught to mimic the specific idiosyncrasies of humans. there's more to being a human than just movement and sound,
we all know this, there is how specifically we do it, when, and why.
 

this seems like nothing, but here Jules is sitting at a convention, observing passerby's facial expressions and learning them to help him be a better
human, and know why we make the faces we do
 

and this, well, this has actual brain cells and actually just thinks for itself
 

so where is this leading? will it lead to the perfect mail-order-mate
 

whats more fascinating is the fact that this was where the tech stood circa 2005-2007. i've been trying to lock onto more up to date material to see
how far its come along? i see some of these an think, yeah, if a wasn't really looking for it i could be deceived. hell, maybe they are already among us,
acting as maybe camera's or even more, and we really don't know. if i were studying animitronics, wouldn't the ultimate test be to have one operating
inside daily life and see if it passes or not? are we emulating God and creating the next life form?

Splatterhouse Returns!

^ WARNING: Might Be Scary * 

Anyone remember this game?


Splatterhouse was original released by Namco in the arcades in 1988.
The premise was based on horror movies, the main character likened to
Jason Voorhees, the hockey mask wearing undead killing machine of the
Friday The 13th movie series.

Story
source:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Splatterhouse

Two a parapsychology university students, Rick and Jennifer, take refuge from a storm in The West Mansion, a local landmark known as "Splatterhouse" for the rumors of hideous experiments purportedly conducted there by Dr. West, a renowned (and now missing) parapsychologist. At the mansion, the two are attacked by demonic creatures that drag Jennifer into the house and fatally wound Rick, leaving him for dead.

Rick awakens in the dungeon of the mansion to discover that he is still alive thanks to the influence of the "Terror Mask," a Mayan sacrificial artifact from West's house which is capable of sentient thought. The mask attaches itself to Rick, fusing with his body and transforming him into a monster with superhuman strength. With the mask's encouragement, Rick goes on a rampage through the dungeon and the mansion grounds, killing hordes of monsters. Inside the mansion, Rick finds Jennifer, prone on a couch and surrounded by a throng of creatures that retreat upon his arrival. After their departure, Jennifer herself transforms into a giant, fanged monster that attempts to kill Rick while begging him for help. Rick kills Jennifer, who transforms back into her normal self and thanks him before she dies. Infuriated, Rick tracks the remaining monsters to a giant, bloody hole in the mansion's floor; upon entering it, Rick discovers that the mansion itself is alive. He follows a bloody, vaginal "hallway" the house's "womb," which is producing fetus-like monsters that attack him. Rick destroys the womb, which causes the house to set ablaze as it "dies."

Escaping the burning mansion, Rick comes across a grave marker; upon approaching it, the Terror Mask releases energy into the grave, reviving a giant monster that claws its way up from the earth and attempts to kill Rick. Rick destroys the creature, which unleashes a tormented ghost that dissipates into a series of bright lights. As the lights vanish, the mask explodes from Rick's face, turning him back to normal. Rick flees as the house burns to the ground; after he's gone, the pieces of the Terror Mask reassemble themselves and laugh.


 
The game was one of the first games to have problems with release due to being excessively violent and containing demonic themes, and other questionable material, and was also one of the first to carry a " parental advisory " when it was first released for a home system, the 16-bit TurboGrafx, and had several elements changed or removed. It spawned two sequels for the Sega Genesis as well as an LCD handheld version.

 
The game play was fairly simple. A side scroller beat em up, in which the players objective was
to walk along and destroy hordes of monsters, demons, and a ton of other suspenseful and demonic
"what-evers" with either Ricks fists, or whatever object was found lying around, much in Jason
Voorhees traditional fashion. Whenever any enemy died, they would leave in a Fatality  which
varied by enemy type and the method used to kill them, but was always explosively gory and sick.
---------


Namco, now partnered with Bandai, had commissioned BottleRocket Entertainment to reboot the
the franchise, but due to snags, Namco has now taken it open themselves to finish the new game
and release it sometime in early 2010, so far for the XBox360 and Playstation 3.

HENSON SEPTEMBER 24TH

 today is my birthday. yippee.
but really importantly its the day my childhood hero,
Jim Henson was born in 1936. usually people seem to
celebrate a persons death, which is to me frankly a little
odd in some cases such as Jim's, because he is the kind of
person i would celebrate the fact that he came, and what he
brought to our world as a result.


Jim Henson revolutionized the entertainment industry
in new and creative ways that cannot be duplicated to date, and in fact after his tragic
death in 1990, was when the industry truly decided to push CGI in full because they
had no real other way to try and compensate for what they needed from him.
He was a Jedi. puppeteer, artist, actor, director, singer, writer, director, and more
responsible for bringing us  Sesame Street , The Muppets, Fraggle Rock, The Dark Crystal, 
Labyrinth,  as well the creature work and more in many bodies of work, two of
the most notable being Star Wars and the live action Ninja Turtles. This was one
of the people who shaped us from children to adults, and his legacy continues to shape
the world today. Id like to wish him a happy b-day, because if persons can remain in
spirit, then he is one who is defiantly here to blow out the candles. thanks Jim for all the love
and kindness.

 

feel free to wish him one as well, or anyone else born this day on September 24th that
you feel deserves praise.and if its your birthday, happy birthday from me to you.

my pick?

tot the person above, Power Pack and New Mutants are under high considering for cartoons, or at least direct to DVD animated films.

i view it two ways.

1.) a full television series. mine would be a little more mature, and probally need to be on Adult Swim if not Showtime...

Squadron Supreme




spanning through all the books including Supreme Power, Ultimate Power, Squadron Supreme,
Hyperion Vs Nighthawk, the solo series, ect.

2.) also i think seperatly for a direct to DVD animated feature. my original choice would have been
Planet Hulk, but that was just announced. otherwhys im split between
Stormbreaker: The Saga Of Beta Ray Bill
