Recently discovered this channel Watch it for Days. Essentially a deep dive research into the old TV show Columbo, walking through and reviewing each episode, interspersed with noting down oddities and gaffs, behind the scenes facts, notable locations (complete with a look at and comparison with the modern day location via Google Maps) and is a veritable Who's Who of actors, both credited and uncredited alike.

She's done 13 videos to date (TV Movie, pilot episode and the first 11 episodes), and it takes a while to compile everything for the next episode (understandably) but it's worth a watch.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

Watched it now. Hard to say much about the plot from it (the central "reveal" is almost certainly a fakeout), but it's just nice seeing all those characters again. Yay, Hunter! Let's hope he has a more substantial role in the film, he was barely in the last couple of seasons.

What's so strange about The Forest?

Yes, it's a three and a half hour video essay about a survival game about cannibals (so, disturbing imagery involved) but I recommend sitting down and giving it a listen, as it heavily delves into the issues that arise when you skimp out on the worldbuilding stage.

Really want to watch that video, Alex. Maybe I'll have time tonight...

Finally got around to watch this, and it reminded me why I should check videos in advance, because from your description I was expecting a rather serious video essay, not Soviet fuckin' Womble. I mean, it's still informative, just really funny as well.

Only seen about half of it. Again, it's very informative (if not super surprising) about the weirdness that goes into adding plot to a plotless survival game. Very good stuff, will watch the rest.

BOLAVLK/WEREAWOLF. An animated student short film by sournoodl (can't tell if they give their real name somewhere).

Not just a horror short, there's a lot more going on there, especially relatable to people within the online art... community thing. I felt pretty shaken after watching it.

Yeah, that's unpleasant but very good. While I have no experience with the situation from what I know it rings very true.

I know, right!

Mentioning this because I missed it until I read the comments (not spoiler-tagging, since it's not really a spoiler): when their dA profiles are shown, we see that the protagonist is 13 and Isaac is 19. So it's a bit worse than the usual "toxic person pressures you for free art" situation...

just for fun, found the song that plays during the chat scenes in the film: KATAMARI by Femtanyl.
