We got our first “official” look at the new Batmobile, which is reminiscent of Fast and Furious souped-up muscle cars. Batman don’t got bat-friends, he got bat-family.

Speculation is that these twins are playing Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. But my hunch is they are playing very small parts. Every horror occult movie needs to have their iconic twin terror scene, so if Bats is facing off with The Court of Owls cult, these twins will make an appearance or introduction to the cult in white skull makeup. Nothing big or fancy. It’s just a scene that calls for twins.

There’s also rumours that Johnny Depp is set to play the new Joker. In another universe, that might be 100% true. But if somehow that universe merged with our reality, it might be true too. But WB has to test that rumour with audiences first and not invest too much time on it. They probably might even have shot a small scene and shopped it around. If fans don’t like it, it might get cut. If fans do, it might become a reality. My problem is it’s too out of left field and might steal too much of Bat-tison’s spotlight.

Solution: Laptop audio/video is slow, crackling, out of sync

Solution: Laptop audio/video is slow, crackling, out of sync
By Chongchen Saelee

If your laptop seemingly is slowing down in performance, you hear audio crackling, your video is sluggish and not synced with the audio, then make sure your laptop battery is in good condition. Odds are, your laptop is literally in its last breath of life, like literally only 10% health. Replace it with a brand new fully recharged laptop battery and see if this solves your problem! You’ll know your old battery is about to die if it is physically bloated. So time to throw it out and replace it. Hope that helps!

Wonder Woman 1984 Official Trailer Released

Seems a little limp. Color grading is awesome. Music is appropriate. But nothing particularly epic about it. The only thing that really sticks out is Wondie swinging on lightning bolts, which is surprisingly imaginative.

The Flash: A Body Horror Time Travel Crime Thriller (Fan Fiction)

The Screaming Horror Flash

The Flash: A Body Horror Time Travel Crime Thriller (Fan Fiction)
By Chongchen Saelee

My idea for how to do The Flash for the big screen. It would be a mix between Hellraiser, The Time Machine, and Altered States.

The basic premise is that Barry Allen is a crime scene investigator who can’t get over the death of his wife having found her skinned when he shows up by chance at a crime scene. So he makes a deal with The Devil in an attempt to bring his wife back to life. Of course, shit goes to hell when he’s working in the lab and is struck by red lightning, the building burns down, and his body disappears. Everyone assumes he’s dead. (more…)

The Dead Fish Trap: A Scary Southeast Asian Tale

The Dead Fish Trap


The Dead Fish Trap: A Scary Southeast Asian Tale
An early Halloween treat from Chongchen Saelee

Deep in the jungles of Southeast Asia where it constantly rains and the dark brown earth is covered by darker shadows from the thick canopy above, the people struggle to survive day-to-day despite living in an environment that seems to be fertile with life and serene.

One day, along a stretch of man-made trail, which was no wider than 2 feet and was basically bare dirt surrounded by thick grass from all the years of people trekking the same path, a gang of young dirty starving but happy children none older than about 10 years of age were walking and chattering carrying a small worn-out wooden bucket filled with a couple small fish from a fishing outing by the creek earlier.

From the opposite end of the trail approached an old bald fisherman with spots on his bald scalp and he had a long unkempt white beard. The old man was really thin, his eyes were baggy and tired, and he was always smiling and humming old songs but his teeth were yellow and crooked and many had fallen out. The old man was carrying a crude fishing rod made from bamboo and had a fancy bamboo weaved basket, a decent size, which might hint for locals that he may be quite proficient at what he did. The old man had a pipe dangling in his mouth, although it wasn’t stuffed or lit. He enjoyed smoking opium while he fished.

When the old fisherman and the gang of youths eventually meet in the middle of the trail, the old man couldn’t resist the youths’ potent young energy. The old man asked to see what kind of fish the children had caught and they were more than happy to brag about their measly two tiny fish. The old man laughed loudly and insulted the children, calling them stupid and smelly and dispensed his tips and tricks on how to catch the biggest fish in the village, fish so big you could eat for an entire week.

Star Wars Episode IX Rise of Skywalker Teaser Trailer is Online!!!

Meh. Awesome CGI though. Music’s always good. But everything else isn’t. Nostalgia factor practically is gone. And nostalgia is a huge part of Star Wars success, a bunch of men who can’t grow up reliving their childhood about the first time they experienced “new worlds”. You can remedy that in real life by meeting new people and being more open-minded of people and cultures that are different than your own. Living on movies with people in green and blue makeup isn’t going to fix that.

Serenity EX2: The Further Adventures of Baker Dil

A fan fiction by Cnoknor Salihiwi IV

I didn’t always go by Baker Dillon, or Baker Dil for short. I escaped a troubled past. It’s been so long, I don’t even remember why or maybe I’ve just blocked it out. But I’m Baker Dil nowadays. The name just sounds more freeing.

Here I am on my heroic mystical quest into uncharted territories aboard my ship The Serenity. This time, I’m on the search for the dragon brothers that have been terrorizing Plymouth: Bowser, Gandondorf, and Ridley. I’m headed for the highest point on top of Mount Greyskull, yes, I know it sounds ominous, where I heard menacing dragons like to roost.

I was given this glowing golden sword by an old wise speaking owl while trekking through the forest nude. I found trekking nude as liberating to my soul as swimming nude in the open water. It’s like a rebirth every time.

Legend has it, I need to slay these dragons with this golden sword because it has been endowed with magical powers. I suppose I could use a harpoon gun but I just have to take the wise owl’s word for it. I’ve cheated death too many times based on my own whims or someone else’s. It was when I left my fate up to divine intervention is when I knew I was on the right side of God. He’s carried me this far.

Deep in the blue beyond
An epic war rages on
Searching for the ultimate peacekeeper
To bridge the great divide

They call him
Aqua-Man (Aqua) (Aqua) (Aqua)

AQUA-MAN!!!

Aqua-fellow
in yellow
and one mean badass
in green

He’s AQUA-MAN!!! (Aqua) (Aqua) (Aqua)

AQUA-MAN!!!

He’s the son of the ultimate underwater queen
and some schlub who drinks booze
and jerks off in a lighthouse at night
when it gets really cooooold

What it’s like to be poor? A Soliloquy

Empty Wallet

Empty Wallet

What it’s like to be poor?
By Chongchen Saelee

What it’s like to be poor?
You’re always frowning
Your neck’s always itching like a dog
Your clothes don’t fit

You got The Beach Boys Greatest Hits on your mind
But you don’t have a smartphone to listen to any of them
Your last dollar was spent on something foolish
Like a lottery ticket instead of a cheeseburger

You’re sleeping on the floor
And your face is a globe for flies
And you don’t have the energy to clap along
To the hum of the insects wings buzzing by your ear

How To Read Attacker’s Face In Fight

Here are some sketches I’ve done to show you the faces of attackers might have during a life or death confrontation. I’m not an expert, but it might help some.

Read Faces of Attacker in Fight

Read Faces of Attacker in Fight

 

 



1. The attacker is just puffing up his chest, showboating. If the attacker is armed, he might even fire some “warning” shots to show how tough and bad-ass he is. He wants you to think he means business. In actuality, he doesn’t want to hurt anyone. An attacker with the intent to kill would kill someone without hesitation without any of this macho theatre. Of course, I’m not an expert. Don’t go putting yourself in front of a bullet’s path.



2. The attacker is enraged, possibly preparing for actual fight or flight mode. A lot of fear at this stage. May even be the expression during the actual attack or fight.
