August-2003

Willard Library is one of the most haunted places in the United States. However one image from the library’s ghost feed is very disturbing. On August 8th 2003, this image was captured on the feed. It shows a black mass crawling on the floor in the children’s section. This spirit along with the infamous Gray Lady are some of the ghosts that the small Indiana library is proud to house.

This wider view of Uranus reveals the planet’s faint rings and several of its satellites.

The bright satellite on the lower right corner is Ariel, which has a snowy white surface. Five small satellites with dark surfaces can be seen just outside the rings. Clockwise from the top, they are: Desdemona, Belinda, Portia, Cressida, and Puck. Even fainter satellites were imaged in deeper exposures, also taken with the Advanced Camera in August 2003.

happy 14th anniversary, mcfly!! (august 5th, 2003)

“For us, it feels like McFly is forever. It is the constant. We have all of these other projects but McFly is the one thing that we will never go away – in a good way! It’s always there for us and it’s always where our hearts lay. It’s nice now there’s no pressure for us to write an album every year; we can do it when it feels right for us. Because of McBusted it had been a long time since we did anything just the four of us and I think that people kind of get it now that we’ll always be around.” — Tom Fletcher

I can’t believe we are at this point right now. Simply, thank you to this beautiful show and everyone that has continued honoring its legacy. May this gem of a story continue to shine.

Kevin and Sami: An Origin Story with Gifs

Note: This story is too long and complex for one gifset, stitched together from two different interviews, so for this one you get an essay with gifs.  (Also, I beg your indulgence–this one time, I’m going to assume the ridiculous conspiracy theory that Sami was El Generico is true.  Just this one time.)

Below the cut lies an epic tale which includes forbidden wrestling, miraculous moonsaults, emotional breakdowns and epiphanies, and ambition renounced for art!

“Death Rides the Sky of Lightning,” by Jon Sullivan
Discworld 2003 Calendar August Image

One of my favorite things about Discworld is that if you’ve never read a single one of the novels but had only heard them described, you might not believe that all the illustrations of Death riding a skeletal motorcycle and/or holding an electric guitar, which look like metal album cover art, are canon.  This utter badassery happened.

Here’s some detail which should not be missed:

Radical.

Timeline to Columbine, and the aftermath.

Timeline:
January 1998 - Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris are arrested after stealing items from a van. After pleading guilty, they are sent to a juvenile diversion program.

List of fucked up movies i've seen/ still need to watch and review

A list of movies I’ve watched, reviewed, or am hoping to watch and review. I’m just making this list so I can save it for when I move because I’ll be starting my film review channel back up after the move!

Also I added the Butters system, so here’s a guide

0 Butters: I can’t believe this is an actual movie that actually got made. Someone actually took the time to create this. Why.
1-2 Butters: Don’t.
2.5-3 Butters: Go ahead. It’s entertaining enough. I guess.
3.5-4 Butters: Oh shit
4.5-5 Butters: Damn that was good as fuck. 

  • Martyrs (2008)

I actually really liked this one. It brought up some really good points about life and death and the acting was incredible. The English dub actors are like painfully American at some points, but it’s still a pretty good movie. 

Most fucked up part: A 10 minute montage of a girl getting the shit beat out of her

I have reviewed this

4
/5 Butters

  • Audition (2001)
  • Cannibal Holocaust (1980)
  • I Spit On Your Grave (1978)
  • A Clockwork Orange (1971)*

It’s a classic, but it’s a little older so it’s not quite as “edgy” as some of the newer movies on the list, but it tells a great story and Malcolm McDowell plays and excellent Alex DeLarge

Most fucked up part: There’s a moderately graphic rape scene in the beginning

I still need to review this.

4/5 Butters

  • Irréversible (2002)
  • Men Behind The Sun (1988)
  • Salò, Or The 120 Days Of Sodom (1975)
  • The Human Centipede (First Sequence) (2009)*
  • The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) (2011)*

When the first one came out there was so much hype. “Omg this is the most fucked up movie ever!!!” And then I watched it, and, while the concept is disgusting, it’s kind of boring and the acting is terrible. I didn’t even really feel bad for the girls because their characters were so unlikable.

The second one at least lived up to the gross-ness, but it was still fucking terrible.

Most fucked up part: A naked pregnant woman gives birth in her car and then squashes the baby’s head with her foot.

I still need to review this.

1/5 Butters

  • Aftermath (1994)*

It’s only a half hour and there’s no plot. I mean you can go ahead and watch it because it’s only a half hour of your life, but it’s pretty meh. Basically a doctor fucks a dead body during an autopsy and then gives some human meat to his dog

The most fucked up part: A doctor fucks a dead body during an autopsy and then gives some human meat to his dog. that’s literally the whole thing. 

I still need to review this. 

1/5 Butters

  • August Underground’s Mordum (2003)
  • This is the worst movie I’ve ever seen. 20 minutes in I checked the time and died a little inside because there was an hour left. After it was over I just sat there and ate nutella out of the jar because life is too short to waste an hour and twenty minuted of it on this movie. I guess they met their goal though because it actually did make me physically nauseous, and every time I thought it couldn’t possible get more gross, it did. So I mean I guess if you wanna watch an hour and twenty minutes of shaky cam, yelling, and way more vomit than you were expecting, then knock yourself out. It’s not even worth it for the gore. I would watch any other movie that I’ve seen on this list 94 times before I watched this again. If the other 2 August Underground movies were on this list, I would take them off, but fortunately this was the only one that made it on here in the first place.  

    The most fucked up part: The whole thing.

    0/5 Butters 

  • Guinea Pig: The Devil’s Experiment (1985)
  • Guinea Pig: Flowers Of Flesh And Blood (1985)
  • A Serbian Film (2010)

I’ve never been more conflicted with a movie in my life. This movie is well shot, the acting is amazing, the premise is interesting, there are twists and turns along the way, I never lost interest, and yet this is the most sickening, infuriating film I have ever watched in my life. It’s awful, but I just can’t call it a bad movie.

Most fucked up part: I can’t even pick there’s like 5 that stand out and I don’t even want to repeat them.

I have reviewed this 

4/5 Butters

  • Cutting Moments (1997)
  • The Bunny Game (2010)
  • Frontière(s) (2007)
  • Gummo (1997)
  • Nekromantik (1987)
  • Teeth (2007)*

I actually love this movie. It’s the story of a teenage girl with teeth…in her vagina….and they bite down whenever something goes in there without her consent. I feel like us women should evolve to that at some point.

Most fucked up part: Lots of severed dick. Lots. 

I still need to review this

3.5/5 Butters

  • Grotesque (2009)
  • The Girl Next Door (2007)*

A lot of people have been telling me to watch “The Girl Next Door” because it’s “So much more disturbing than *insert any movie on this list*, but I’ve seen it, and I disagree. Don’t get me wrong, the movie is horribly disturbing, but compared to some of its gorier brethren, it’s pretty tame. It’s the concept that fucks you up as opposed to actually showing blood and gore.

Most fucked up part: Implied blowtorch to the vagina

I still need to review this

2.5/5 Butters

  • Dogtooth (2009)*

A satirical foreign film about a father who keeps his family inside for their entire lives. He keeps them under the impression that outside is horrible and evil, and that they can never leave (think Tangled, but with a fuckton of incest.)

Most fucked up part: A girl bashes one of her teeth out with a handweight (if I remember correctly)

I still need to review this

2.5/5 Butters

  • Eraserhead (1977)
  • Slaughtered Vomit Dolls (2006)
  • Melancholie der Engel (2009)
  • Megan Is Missing (2011)

This movie fucked me UP. I couldn’t sleep for days after watching it. I mean I knew it wasn’t a great movie, but about 2/3 of the way through this movie goes from laughably bad to straight up terrifying in 0.1 seconds. Of course, the YMS review cured my fear of it almost entirely, but the concept of what happened in the movie is still absolutely horrifying.

The most fucked up part: Probably when a girl gets buried alive in a plastic barrel….along with the corpse of her best friend.

I have reviewed this.

.5/5 Butters

  • Threads (1984)
  • Pink Flamingos (1972)
  • À l'Intérieur (2007)
  • Happiness (1998)
  • Funny Games (1997)*

This is one of my favorite horror movies of all time. What sets it apart from the others is the complete lack of blood and guts, and the fact that the villains break every single classic horror movie rule. It also explores the idea that we have become desensitized through the media. Also the main villain is scary as FUCK (in the Dutch version, although he’s fairly horrifying in the American remake as well.) What’s nice is that the American version is frame-by-frame the exact same movie, so you can watch either version and still get the full effect. No movie has ever made me lock my doors quite so quickly.

Most Fucked Up Part: I mean it’s kind of a spoiler but they kill the dog and then make the mom find it by playing "hot” and “cold.” Some other fucked up shit happens but I don’t wanna ruin it for you guys because it’s that good. 

I still need to review this. 

5/5 Butters

  • Faces of Death (1978)
  • Requiem For A Dream (2000)

It’s not even really a horror movie at all, but it’s one of my favorite movies of all time. It explores several types of addiction- drugs, love, food- and what they can make people do. If you’ve ever considered trying herion, watch Requiem For A Dream and I can almost guarantee you you’ll change your mind.

Most Fucked Up Part: Jared Leto’s gross elbow infection. 

I have reviewed this.

/5 Butters

  • Visitor Q (2001)
  • Eden Lake (2008)
  • Philosophy of a Knife (2008)
  • Snowtown (2011)
  • Taxidermia (2006)
  • The Green Elephant (1999)
  • Cannibal (2006)
  • Man Bites Dog (1992)
  • American Mary (2013)

Pretty good if you don’t mind a little gore. It’s about a driven medical student who takes up doing body modification to pay her way through school. Then, when she’s date raped by her professor, she gets some pretty sick revenge and becomes one of the best body mod artists in her area. Girl power! (I think)

The Most Fucked Up Part: I mean there’s a dude with no arms and legs hanging from a meathook at one point. Girl Power!

3.5/5 Butters

  • Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer (1986)
  • Vase de Noces (1975)
  • Feed (2005)
  • Subconscious Cruelty (1999)
  • Where the Dead go to Die (2012)
  • Murder-Set-Pieces (2004)
  • Bad Boy Bubby (1993)
  • The Theatre Bizarre

A collaboration of 6 (I think) different directors put together 6 short films lazily strung together with some plot about a haunted movie theatre. It’s not really fair to judge the movie based on the “theatre” concept seeing as the theatre only exists to get the next short film rolling.
I’ll give you a hint: The first one is stupid, the second one is okay, the third one is disturbing as fuck, the fourth one is so fucking boring, the fifth one tries too hard to be “deep” and “artistic” and the sixth one is disgusting but the main chick’s nose is a fucking work of art and I need to know who her plastic surgeon is.

The most fucked up parts:
Short Film 1= A woman covered in frog slime
Short Film 2= Just lots of blood. 
Short Film 3= Lots of severed dick. Again. 
Short Film 4= A guy kills a deer who’s already dying
Short Film 5= Fetus juice in your eye can’t feel good
Short Film 6= Cannibalism and vomit. 

I have reviewed this.
