I would like a write a little about my affinity for the weirdest things.I’m a complicated person and it seems like that there are a few things in life that spark my attention and admiration. Or at least stick around long enough in my brain for a mention. It’s usually something weird, strange (things that make me go “WTF!”), or the creepy dark. Here’s a short list of them for the sake of! Whee!!! ^w^/
= The Weird =
1.) Geddan is a meme that began as a fad in Japan, as it was discovered that when the Nintendo 64 game, GoldenEye 007, had a glitch where the characters and vehicles would writhe in midair if the cartridge was not inserted into the console all the way. This sparked a new dance fad of imitating this glitch, “Geddan” is the Engrish translation of “Get Down”, a phrase used in the Japanese pop song named “Promise” used in this meme. My favorite version is: Phil And Dan Get Down
2.) Caramelldansen is a Sweeden pop song that became an internet meme, featuring anime characters swaying their hips and moving their hand against their head like bunny ears. It makes no sense whatsoever, but it’s enjoyable to me all the same. I love the FullMetal Alchemist one as well. ^_^v
3.) Trololo Song is also known as the “Russian Rickroll”, although I usually watch this one on PURPOSE, because it’s so very weird and entertaining. The singer, Eduard Khill, recorded this song without lyrics in a style known as a non-lexical vocable, in 1976. It became a meme in 2010 and Mr. Khill was known internationally after that. This recording is so weird, because he is lip syncing to a song without words and has odd robotic like movements. Sadly, Eduard Khill passed away in June 2012, but he expressed how happy he was that everyone were paying attention this old performance.
1.) Rejected is a cartoon by Don Hertzfeldt, which seems totally random and weird on the surface. It’s a story about an animator slowly losing his mind within the corporate advertising world. Don Hertzfeldt has a lot of strange cartoon series, as that’s his general style. My other favorites are: Everything Will Be Okay and The Meaning Of Life.
2.) Asdfmovie is a series of flash-animations that are totally random. They’re strange, because you find yourself asking if you should laugh at them, then you laugh at some odd random thing later. Most of all, you walk away from them feeling a huge sense of “WTF”! o_O
= The Dark =
1.) Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared is a disturbing short, that starts off with an upbeat theme and puppets. Although, things start to get very dark and leaves a viewer with an unsettling feeling afterward. You’ll want to agree to never be creative again. There’s a second video, which is just as creepy and recently the creators of this channel has announced that they will make more. Yay, nightmares! ^o^/
2.) Username666 is a story about an unseen computer user coming across a username of “666” on Youtube. This unseen user clicks the link and find themselves trapped in one hellish experience online. This video gives me the chills!
3.) Slender Man is a modern urban legend, that started on a site called “Something Awful”, by forum user Eric Knudsen in 2009. Slender Man is depicted as a thin, unnaturally tall man with a featureless face, wearing a black suit. Sometimes he have growing dark appendages growing from him or takes on the form of a spider-like creature in some lore. He known for stalking, abducting, or traumatizing people, particularly children. Some of the symptoms of his presence is coughing fits or coughing up blood, nausea, paranoia, vomiting, bloody noses, fever, and sometimes amnesia.
The appearance of Slender Man can also cause audio or video distortions of cameras or other nearby electronics. And once Slender Man takes a victim, that person is never found again. He’s one of the scariest boogeymen lore today, I believe. Every time I have a coughing fit or my audio/video glitches on my laptop in the middle of the night, for no apparent reason, I have to wonder… >_>
4.) Smile Dog has got to be the most creepiest creepypasta ever! Sorry, you’ll have to find the video version of the story yourself (I’ve only included the link to the wiki page). I found the video on Youtube…. but the photo of the dog, smiling, the hand and the message scrawled above it… I couldn’t handle it and had to close the browser, without getting the url. O_O
Very few things terrify me like that, so I definitely agree that Smile Dog is one creepy story and photo! Well done! ^_^v
That’s all for my short list. As always, thanks for reading!
