Series review: Marble Hornets Season 2 begins with our protagonist Jay waking up in a hotel seven months after Season 1 with no idea of how he got there, or what happened since entry 26. He and a girl named Jessica are the only tenants in the hotel, and Jay soon learns that Jessica has also forgotten how she got there. Jay later finds footage that he shot in the missing seven months, and he begins to piece together what has happened to him, and those in his proximity.

    Marble Hornets: The Complete First Season – DVD Review

    Marble Hornets: The Complete First Season DVD

    Series:
    DVD:

    Directed by: Troy Wagner
    Written by: Troy Wagner, Joseph DeLage, Kirill Baru
    Starring: Troy Wagner, Joseph DeLage

    Genre: Internet Horror series.
    YouTube channels: Marble Hornets; totheark

    Series review: Three years ago, Alex Kralie started a student film titled “Marble Hornets,” but abandoned the project halfway through. When his friend Jay (our protagonist and narrator) asks him what he plans to do with the footage, Alex simply says: “Burn It.” After some coercion, Jay manages to get the tapes from Alex, just before he moves away. Jay neglects the tapes for three years and when he finally decides to watch them, he posts any strange incidents on the tapes to a YouTube account. And this draws him into a nightmarish world he cannot escape.

    First off, Marble Hornets is scary. Very scary. Not in the “Oh my god, I just jumped out of my seat” way, but more in the “I am paralyzed with fear” way. The series doesn’t rely on jump scares or blood and gore; it is a finely crafted piece of Hitchcockian horror, with elements of Lovecraft thrown in for good measure. The antagonist, The Operator, is an ever present creature with no conceivable motive, and yet unknown paranormal abilities. Based off of the popular Slender Man mythos, The Operator is portrayed as a tall, thin, faceless man wearing a business suit. This seemingly tame combination creates a terrifying beast that will haunt your dreams.

    Google +1 and You

    Google Plus One

    So you might have noticed that we have a new badge/button/thing on our individual post pages. It’s Google +1 and it’s, in a nutshell, Google‘s response to Facebook’s Like button. I’m posting a video below that has Google’s quick take on it, but the main difference is that with Facebook, your shares and likes and recommends and such show up on your profile. If a friend/compatriot of yours “+1s” something, you’ll see that show up in Google search results.

    Anyway, I know we have those buttons and such on posts and I’ve never really explained what they are for in any detail, beyond mentioning them on podcasts and in videos as “a good thing to do.” So here’s the skinnee. This applies to most websites and not just Need Coffee, so if you are socially active on Twitter, Facebook or elsewhere on the net, you might find this of interest. If not, don’t worry–this won’t take long.

    Caprica: They Just Keep Blowing It Up

    Caprica

    So, the other day I was thinking to myself, “Man, it’s really difficult to get people to agree on what makes a good Science-Fiction television property. While some people like the science and tech to be a backdrop for the human drama, some people don’t give a crap about the human drama and just want the exploration of technological and scientific speculation. You know, there haven’t really been many shows that have successfully blended the two perspectives. Hmm. Well, I guess Caprica— SyFy Channel’s spin-off of their Battlestar Galactica reboot— does. Yeah. You know, Caprica‘s got a really great blend of the emotional drama inherent in religious conflict, ambition, grief, betrayal, and the philosophical considerations that flow from those, all balanced and even driven by really amazing tech and science that’s relevant to the concerns of the present day! I sure am glad that Caprica‘s around.”

    Which is all to say that Caprica has, of course, been canceled.
