people lulz

on a slightly serious note though

Gil is 100%, completely and utterly, totally screwed. I mean. There’s no recovering at this point, he is in deep shit and nothing is going to save him.

Let’s presume that Odin is able to slide under the door and gets into the ship-and I mean, yeah he’s probably gonna make it, I don’t think it’s very dramatic to have your character die by…door(though I will admit, it would be a genuine plot twist, hah). Looking at the currently circumstances;

Well, first of all, all three of the people Gil took in-Ava, Odin, and Maggie-were photographed and their faces catalogued by the guards. Granted, those guards….yeah those same guards probably also died during the presentation, but there has to be some database shared by ALL guards, so I doubt the photos died with them. Gil also was the one to drop two of his passengers off at the Refugee Center…

Which they escaped from, but Gil doesn’t know about that yet. Then, he’s about to get Maggie tested when one of his passengers goes hogwild, taking out the TITAN Guards, possibly killing Strategos Six, and most importantly, massacres innocent civilians. Ava was under the influence of the vial, sure, but again, Gil doesn’t know that. He and Maggie walked in on Ava just…suddenly being a huge monster and killing people for the lulzs.

And now, he’s about to be trapped in an automated vessel-which Gil implies they shouldn’t be on, getting awfully nervous at the idea of boarding an automated vessel which apparently, has cameras inside-with a guy he thinks crashed a ship into his home and a girl that MURDERED PEOPLE.

If you’re a TITAN Guard, and you find these four stowaways in a ship, are you really going to believe in Gil’s innocence? And furthermore, are you really going to care?

No. You’re going to think he was part of some rebellious plan, and do your damnedest to capture him. Gil brought Ava to the planet; now, obviously it wasn’t in his control what happened, but again, that doesn’t matter. In the eyes of TITAN, Gil is complicit in murder.

So uh…this isn’t really a theory, just ramblings, but. Gil might wanna start packing his bags and maybe get some running shoes on-Maggie as well, for that matter-since this…can’t end well.

-police siren-

Sorry if you play GTA it’s time to put you in jail because you think that it’s okay to run over people, shoot people, deal with drugs and murder, go on high-speed police chases and beat up people for the lulz. 

Sorry the fact that you play GTA clearly influences the fact that you think its okay to do in real life. Sorry, can’t have dangerous people on the streets.

four reasons why pyramid head can’t be alessa’s protector

Really gotta start posting these to my other tumblr, but screw it, I’m not logging out. >.>

Alright, so we’ve seen it in the first and second movies.  PYRAMUD HED™, who acts as Alessa’s instrument of vengeance. In the first movie, he skinned an innocent girl who so happened to get in his way.

In Revelation, Pyramid Head came to Heather’s rescue by battling Claudia in one of the most anticlimactic scenes I’ve seen in any Silent Hill media period.

Yeah … no.

Here are four reasons why Pyramid Head serving as Alessa’s protector doesn’t make sense:


1.) It wrongly attributes vengeance to Alessa’s original motives.

The complexity of Alessa’s character in the first game lies in that, even though she’s endured horror and pain beyond compare, she doesn’t seek vengeance on her own behalf. If she had, her mother and Dr. Kaufman probably would have died a lot sooner. 

Alessa’s primary goal was to kill God and end her suffering. Any damage the Seal of Metatron caused beyond that was purely collateral. At that point, the girl was desperate.

It’s when Claudia causes Harry’s death in the third game that we begin to see her take any sort of active interest in revenge, in the form of Heather. And even then, Heather briefly questions whether or not Harry would approve, thus implying vengeance for its own sake runs against the grain of her character.

People debate the precise nature of what Pyramid Head is supposed to symbolize, but one theme that remains clear among them is punishment. Specifically, James’ subconscious desire to be penalized for his own sin. So technically, it would be punishment turned inward. I’d even argue it was a form of James taking vengeance against himself in order to vindicate Mary.

The reason I don’t consider Alessa particularly vengeful or bent on punishment is because of the nature of her monsters. Every monster is designed to push Harry back; to repel him, keeping him from preventing Alessa killing God. If he dies along the way, that’s merely a tragic tangent to her ultimate goal—which, given the endgame if God somehow was born properly, would have actually been a mercy.

A protector like Pyramid Head who needlessly kills would imply that Alessa doesn’t have the strength of spirit to keep from indulging in dark, self-serving desires. And it should be noted that this is a fundamental error of character that gets perpetuated in the movies. Alessa may be dark-spirited from time to time, but she is not evil, and she does not desire others to suffer.

There’s also the question of logistics. The same girl who, according to Harry, killed God through her sheer “conscious resistance” just didn’t have the spare will nor time to actively punish her tormentors, even though she possessed the power to kill with just her mind. All that power went into weakening the fledgling God.


2.) Any protector she would have conjured would have looked more like the Incubator than Pyramid Head, whose appearance would have frightened her.

Even if Alessa wanted to punish those who caused her such suffering, I doubt it’d come dressed as a burly, ultra-masculine humanoid figure beleaguered by a triangular helmet. Because let’s face it: Pyramid Head has an appearance that is supposed to evoke dread and remind one of executioners.

Consider, however, that the Incubator appears as Alessa initially saw God: an ethereal, glowing being garbed in a white dress.

Despite its angelic visage, the Incubator is also deadly. It can strike down nonbelievers with lightning, testifying to God’s dual nature of being both wrathful and merciful according to the Order’s beliefs. There is almost a motherly quality to it, which is further emphasized when the dying Incubator gives Harry the newly reincarnated baby Heather.

Remember that all Alessa wanted was someone to care for her. Because her mother failed her in that regard, she clung to Lisa and may have even protected her from the Otherworld’s effects until her hold on it crumbled. She then split her soul and found a small portion of solace as Cheryl Mason, the adopted daughter of a kind woman and a dedicated man.

In Alessa’s eyes, a “protector” would project a softer, more feminine image. It might even be divine, with enough strength to defend her from God’s negative influence. That’s vastly different from Pyramid Head’s tendency to persecute Maria.

Moreover, the Romper monster established that Alessa was afraid of ill-intentioned adults and their power over her, a fear which was exacerbated by their sheer size. As implied by their method of attack (tackling Harry to the ground and lunging at his throat) she would fear being pinned down, left helpless as they tormented her even more.

Pyramid Head is roughly the same in stature as James, minus the enormous helmet; much bigger than a girl of fourteen, and doubly so than a young girl of seven. 

So, again, given her fear of “big scary adults,” why would she conjure a figure she’d naturally be apprehensive of?


3.) Pyramid Head already had a specific purpose.

Say it with me now: Pyramid Head’s purpose was to help James Sunderland realize the truth.

Nothing more, nothing less.

Seriously, Robbie the Rabbit has more in common with Alessa’s story than Pyramid Head.

Furthermore, I just don’t get this notion that the big lug is supposed to be a shorthand for the town’s desire to punish people, because not only does Silent Hill not torment people for “teh lulz,” Silent Hill thought that Pyramid Head was what James wanted at the time.

It was born from James’ desire to punish himself, and it died when James finally realized the purpose for its existence, then deeming it unnecessary. For all intents and purposes, there is no more reason for it to exist in any other Otherworld. …Unless James rises from the dead or something. o_o

And lastly …


4.) Pyramid Head killed himself in his last battle against James. Twice.

He ded.

Discordianism 2014

Discordianism has a lot of layers. The surface layer is often called the Legion of Dynamic Discord. A common LDD interpretation of Discordianism is that it is mainly about causing disorder and fucking with people. That’s why LDD also stands for “Little Deluded Dupes” - they got reeled in by the Eristic Delusion.

The LDD mainly consists of aimless kids who are driven by their pleasure drive. And it’s pretty much like 4chan. They have trouble distinguishing between Grayface and people who merely disagree with them. They do a lot of trolling people for lulz and trying to ruin people’s day. Being “edgy”. You know, like those stickers where Calvin is taking a piss?

As far as I can tell, that’s always been the case. Legend has it, Lord Omar / Kerry Thornley logged onto alt.discordia only once, and then was immediately disappointed by the surface level dickery. A lot of those cats thought their mild rebelliousness was actually subversive. A whole box of tools at their disposal and they were only using one.

A lot of the people get stuck there in the LDD, that’s their destination. For others, it’s just a phase they pass through on the journey towards Aftermath. Everybody’s gotta start somewhere.

The spirit of Discordia contains a recipe for building a better world. A big part of that creation involves dismantling the world that exists right now, the Machine. We hold up a mirror that reflects the Machine’s absurdity back at itself. It’s not easy. It’s actually a pretty difficult trick to pull off. At the most basic level, it involves resistance against the everyday “consensus trance”. What to do after that is hotly debated.

So we spread out and study the works of Leary, RAW, the Situationist International, Mandelbrot, Taleb, Banksy, Pussy Riot, Foucault, Baurdillard, Joey Skaggs, John Cage, the list goes on and on … So many people have discovered methods of dismantlement.

Next, we’ve gotta pool all this knowledge, correlate it, sift it out, teach each other how to dismantle The Machine.

The big picture, I think, is not some grand revolution or cultural upheaval. If we all learn how to adjust the parts of the Machine in our immediate vicinity, we can create little islands worth living on. Eventually, the space between those islands will be smaller and smaller, and eventually the edges will bleed into one another until the whole world is transformed because its filled with people who think for themselves.

We can all build our own worlds worth living in - and invite each other over to hang out. And one day (the prophecy goes), the cool parts of the world will have gotten so large that the uncool parts have become little islands ruled by little egos, which don’t bother anybody anymore.

I hope Yana does the backstories for all the supernatural characters in one go. And all the shinigami have emotional tragic sobby backstories. And then at the very end, there’s Sebastian’s tragic backstory. Tragically hilarious backstory. What I hope to see:

  • He made a contract with a random guy once. And the guy’s wish was, “I have this wart on my butt. I think it’s infected. Can you take a look at it? No one else will.”
  • He started the Black Plague by accident because some other demon created the common cold and Sebastian wanted to be cool like them. Instead, the plague happened and the other demons were all “dude, that’s so gross.”
  • He possessed people for the lulz and made them do things like pee on noblemen, eat grass, make lame puns, flirt with policemen
  • He disguised himself as a priest and snuck into churches to deliver sermons or hear confessions; then at the end he rips off the costume “Silly humans! I’m not a priest- you’ve all been fooled HAHAHAHAHA”
  • He “fought” the real Sebastien Michaelis once. He was really smug and gloaty and all “lol u can’t defeat me, stupid human” then Michaelis owned him and 5 seconds later, he’s on the ground begging for mercy
  • He tried to play practical jokes on the pope until the Vatican caught him and sent him screaming via holy water
  • He once drank holy water by accident because some other demon was like “hey, try this cool drink” before going “LOL Fooled you, sucker!”
  • His home in hell has had terrible ventilation problems since 1 BC and for some reason, he’s still in debt since 1 BC and is now wanted for tax evasion
Probably unpopular fandom opinion

Now that there is so much promo material flying around, I keep seeing stuff that basically boils down to, “Aw, Carol’s so great! Now all we need is Daryl.”

I love my shipping. I truly do. I’m a shipper to the core. But Carol Peletier is a fanfuckingtastically awesome character all by herself. She doesn’t need anybody else around to make her awesome. Her awesomeness does not become more awesome just because Daryl enters the scene, or because Daryl also trends on twitter, or because MMB and NR are on set at the same time.

Her awesomeness just is. And sometimes it would be so great if we could celebrate the love, affection, and hard-earned press attention that this amazing character is receiving without immediately defaulting to, “So how can we turn this into a Caryl thing?”

I’m here for All Hail the Queen first and everything else second.
