YouTube Supernatural BS

It's probably not new, but it's starting to show up on the YouTube suggested videos feed at the home page.

Instead of directly superimposing clear images of "alien space craft," people are now superimposing nearly invisible blurry images of "alien space craft" and fading them in and out. It almost had me for a second except the OP described it as a huge alien space craft.

Next, animals that almost seem to talk like humans. Someone was holding a conversation with his cat who seemed to respond with correct inflections in a cat dialect, but the acoustics didn't match and I detected a synthesized reverb effect. Some low-cost apps also have filthy pitch-change algorithms. I doubt the program used was Sound Forge. 

The Curse of Stillness

You're watching the sunset in a small village in Central America. An old witch walks up and curses you with "stillness," meaning you are suddenly unable to move. Literally unable to move at all in the universe.

The earth, however, rotates at about 1,000 miles per hour, travels around the sun at 67,000 miles per hour, and the solar system travels around the Milky Way galaxy at around 514,000 miles per hour, and who the Hell knows how fast the Milky Way galaxy is moving through the cluster, then there's the cluster itself and so on and so on.

What infernal obstruction lies in your path?

Salem and Z-Nation on Netflix

Season 2 of Salem is out on Netflix. Every time a new season comes out I love to start watching from scratch. In season 1, episode 3, character John Alden interrupts three thieves plundering an orphanage. He fires his musket pistol into the ceiling and says "The next one's to your head." But wait, he would need to pour gunpowder down the barrel, drop in another lead ball and put on another firing cap before getting to "the next one."

There may be many such inconsistencies, especially in the dialogue, but for the benefit of the audience, necessary sacrifices must be made.

Anyway, I'm also re-watching The Walking Dead, but Z-Nation is also still available and it's totally nuts to watch compared to how serious TWD takes itself. Like Peter Griffin says "It insists upon itself." So Salem now makes me yearn to watch Z-Nation, the kind of cinematic style that reminds me of Paul VerhoevenTobe Hooper, or George A. Romero,
