How's it going my gumdrops? In Friday's blog, I asked if you wanted to see more Animated Horror Shorts under 5 minutes long, or if you preferred more shorts 5 minutes long or longer. Since nobody answered, I will assume it doesn't matter.
In case you missed the blog I published 2 days ago, you can read it HERE. Those, who DID read the blog, were probably distracted by me ranting about obnoxious Toonami fans and their incessant crying online.
Friday's blog was mostly about this neverending dilemma, which has been going on for the last 5 to nearly 10 YEARS. You may be thinking, "Anna, you have ranted about this how many times now. Why is this still a problem?"
This is something many of us viewers still want to know. Anytime there are bloggers, YouTube vloggers, and podcasters still addressing all the trivial infighting and crying within a fanbase over a cartoon block, there are major problems with some people.
Rather than beating a dead horse, that is already surrounded by maggots, I will ask lurkers and subscribers once again.
Do you want to see more Animated Horror Shorts, that are under, over, or about 5 minutes long in my Cartoon Sunday blogs? Let me know in the comments section below today's blog.
I can't speak for everyone else as far as today's weather forecast goes, however it has been storming like crazy here in Wisconsin lately. In fact, it was just storming earlier this morning, when I was trying to re-watch Naruto Shippuden in English.
Whether you are reading a story or watching something on TV, video, or online, there is something about thunderstorms that stimulate eerie feelings.
Thunderstorms can also be eerie in real life. There is a lot that can go wrong,during a storm. In David Romero's Animated Horror Short, Other Lily the thunderstorm helps to set the eerie tone.
On a dark and STORMY night, the protagonist Lily, receives a text message from her father. He reminds Lily to make sure her younger sister, Beth goes to bed before 10 pm. As Lily walks up the stairs to check on Beth, Lily notices a picture that is drawn by her younger sister.
Beth drew herself, Lily, and another Lily in the picture. Beth refers to her as "Other Lily," in the picture. "Other Lily" is very evil-looking in Beth's drawing. It makes me want to call Other Lily "Evil Lily" because she looks creepy as well as evil.
Eventually, Beth's older sister, Lily goes to bed. As a side note, Lily suffers from sleep paralysis, which may have horrific implications in her waking life.
In case you don't know about sleep paralysis, it can cause frightening hallucinations and nightmares. To learn more about sleep paralysis, you can read about it HERE.
While Lily is sleeping, she dreams of the "Other Lily" opening her bedroom window and crawling around on her ceiling, waiting to attack her. Before "Other Lily" could attack her, Lily awakes from her nightmare.
Suddenly, Lily hears loud crashing noises from downstairs. Watching this short by David Romero will shock you. Other Lily without a doubt has its share of WTF?! Moments towards the end of it. The ending also feels like an eerie cliffhanger.
I did not explain Other Lily in its entirety on purpose.
How much fun would it be if I explained EVERYTHING to my subscribers?
It would completely defeat the purpose of me sharing this disturbing short. Some things are better left to the imagination. If you would like to know what happens next, you will have to watch Other Lily for today's Cartoon Sunday.
