HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Hey everyone!

It's sad to think that Halloween season is over. Of course, you can celebrate Halloween all year long by being spooky and keeping up with creepy things. I'd definitely have a darker wardrobe if I didn't like having a variety of clothing.

I hope your Halloween was successful (or is successful if you're currently trick or treating!). Although I'm not trick or treating because of the rain and homework, I'll be spending my time watching scary movies while I work. What a different Halloween right?

On another note, I'll be participating in NaNoWriMo again! I won last year, and I'm hoping to do so again this year. Even though I have a few essays coming up in November, I want more create more time for writing. Check out my profile and become my buddy if you want to participate together.

How was your Halloween this year? Will you be joining NaNoWriMo?

ARE THESE CREEPYPASTAS WORTH THE FRIGHT? (PART TWO)

Hey everyone!

Yesterday I shared my favorite creepypastas to read. Today, I'll share read along videos of other creepypastas I love! There are some creepypastas that I haven't personally read and only listened to on this list. I find that Cryaotic has incredible voice acting and is amazing at creating a dark atmosphere. While Minx's voice may be slightly jarring to people, I like the overall tone of voice and projected innocence with a touch of crazy. Also included is an hour reading featuring five different people. The first person reading in that video is Daniel Radcliffe who I love with all of my heart and who also scared me to death when I heard his reading.

ARE THESE CREEPYPASTAS WORTH THE FRIGHT?

Hey everyone!

The third episode of Channel Zero was released into the world last night! To read more about the show, click here for my review of it. With Channel Zero bringing my favorite creepypasta to life, I thought it would be perfect if I some more of my favorite stories. Whether you like psychological horror or monsters, you'll find your new favorite scary story. Or one that you will never want to read again because it's too scary.



Siblings are playing hide and seek in the attic. It has 'bad idea' written all over it.


They're waiting for him. It's only a matter of time. 


Based on a real syndrome, this gives it a more darker origin.


A man finds an old Legend of Zelda game that leads down to his doom. One of the classics of creepypasta. 


A town disappears, but what really happened to it?


Exploring an abandoned Disney park sounds like a good idea right? Wrong. 


He loves to play games with you, but this one feels different...


Betsy was your favorite plaything. 

I have a lot of creepypastas bookmarked, but I think this list is long enough to give most people nightmares. If you're not a fan of reading or you don't have the time to sit down and read, I'll be writing about my favorite readings of creepypastas soon!

LIFE HAPPENS #60

Hey everyone!

It has been another exhausting week for me. Not only do I have an essay due next week, I have another math test coming up the week after that. Fun, right? I've been so busy lately, and I've been making apologies about the slow updates for weeks. Life is making me put blogging on the back burner, but not anymore. I'm putting my foot down.

Even though it's halfway through the month, I'll be posting some Halloween inspired posts. Although I have a few ideas on what I'll be writing about, I will not be making Halloween costume makeup. It's not my area of expertise. I don't even have the right products to put costume makeup on myself. There will be some Halloween TV specials references and other fun Halloween ideas coming up soon. Maybe I'll be adding more movies to my 2015 Halloween movies list? The possibilities are endless.

Today's post is a little short, so how about you check out my thoughts on Channel Zero? It's definitely going on my 2015 Halloween TV series!

IS CHANNEL ZERO WORTH THE FRIGHT?

Hey everyone!

SOME SPOILERS AHEAD. IF YOU HAVEN'T READ CANDLE COVE YET, CLICK HERE. DON'T READ THIS POST WITHOUT SOME CONTEXT TO THE STORY OR YOU'LL BE CONFUSED.



This week SyFy premiered their newest series, Channel Zero. Channel Zero brings to life the creepypastas that you wished they didn't bring to life. The first season focuses on Candle Cove. Candle Cove is one of my favorite creepypastas and was one of the first ones I read when I first got into reading them.

Before I go into more detail, how about I break down what creepypastas are for those who are unfamiliar with them? Creepypastas refer to short horror stories that are based on anything from myths and legends to every day actions. To read a bit more about the history of creepypastas, check out this link.

Creepypastas come from anywhere. Many of them are created on one website then posted onto another website or are collected onto one place for easier reading. I use the creepypasta website to read them as I don't use Reddit, and I don't usually stray too far from my usual haunts. Candle Cove is one of the more well-known creepypastas. It's not as popular as Slenderman or Jeff the Killer, but it is a favorite for many people.

SyFy does a good job in creating a mysterious, yet terrifying atmosphere with the first episode. Although the series does have some differences to the creepypasta, the main elements of the story is still there. The puppets are still terrifying and look almost exactly like the ones you find in the creepypasta. There is the chilling aspect of realizing that the show was just static the whole time that is shown very subtly with small hints throughout the episode.

There is the added element of two new characters and a whole new underlying plot. Candle Cove is only talked about in an online chat room in the creepypasta, but the series shows how the show affected a generation of kids in a small town. The main character Mike is shown as a successful author who is trying to avoid his past, but is drawn home after a series of misfortune. Isn't that usually how the main character goes home?

Oh no, it's much worse than whatever you can think up. There is a scene that can trigger someone who is recovering from self-mutilation. As one myself, it was a shock that I wasn't expecting, and I had to look away for a few minutes.

Channel Zero does show some flashbacks that happened unexpectedly throughout the show. The past is shown for either a few seconds to a few minutes. I haven't seen a style of storytelling like that on any of the shows I've watched which is refreshing. It helped added a bit of mystery and drama while answering some questions that I had.

All in all, the first episode of Channel Zero was amazing. It brought a new twist to an old story, and I am excited to see where the show goes.

Have you seen Channel Zero? What do you think of the first episode?

LIFE HAPPENS #59

Hey everyone!

This week was hectic. I had an in-class essay and a math test. Although they were on different days, I was concerned that I would mix up the content. But wait, how do you mix up math with English or vice versa Ellie? Good question. It's a special talent of mine. Don't ask me how I do it, but know that it's a pain in the butt when I do.

Even though it's been a busy week for me school-wise, I had a very peaceful week. So I'll leave you a few YouTube videos that I've been playing on repeat.

LIFE HAPPENS #58

Hey everyone!

It's been a long month for me. Since school really threw me in a loop, I haven't been keeping up with the blog as I'd like. I do have a few posts in the works, but I'm not sure if they're going to see the light of day anytime soon. I have a few tests next week that I'll be studying for this weekend. Hopefully, I'm not too gone this time.

In other news, I am still undecided to do about my YouTube channel. I liked making videos, but in terms of content, everything has been done. Okay, maybe not everything, but it sure does feel like it. I've been looking for a tripod for my camera since I really want to try my hand at stop motion videos. Those videos give a lot more variety than the regular sit and talk that most people create. Since I might participate in NaNoWriMo again, I wanted to be able to create more videos for it in November.

All in all, September may have been busy, but the workload will lighten up soon enough.
