“MOST CHEERIOS FIT ON ONE FACE”
For this world record, the person trying to break the record must see how many cheerios he or she can fit on his or her face. The cheerios are not allowed to be glued or stuck to the face in any way. The current record for most cheerios stuck on a person’s face is 103.
The three dolls above were shown in three different shows I watched this week. The first one starred in a movie called Trilogy of Terror 1975 (the Amelia part). What makes the first doll effective is that it truly in ugly. It’s teeth are scary and kind of look similar to those of a piranha. Also, the music that is played while the doll is attacking the lady and the sounds that are being played during the initial scare of the woman are super effective for making the audience jump and worry. The panic on the lady’s face and in her actions also create a state of panic for the viewers. The second doll is Talky Tina. The writer was effective in this episode because the doll looks so sweet and innocent but really is haunted and scary. The child also foreshadows the movements of the doll and what might happen when in the beginning of the episode she says that the doll talks and moves. The effectiveness used is created with the doll moving by itself and talking randomly. It creates a bit of suspense throughout the show because you know something is going to happen. I don’t think the bitterness of the father works in this series because I think it takes away from the haunted aroma of the doll. The third doll is on Night Gallery. The doll’s appearance is very effective in this show because just looking at the doll gives you an uneasy feeling. Once the doll is shown, the viewer can just guess somethings going to be wrong with the doll and scary things are going to happen. I didn’t really like the music in this show compared to the other ones. I think a big thing storytellers use when making shows online or n theaters in music and the impact it has on the viewers.
The first link that was provided was pretty much an explanation of today’s modern internet and the things students and adults use to communicate. I think this informative link was helpful to ascribe all the different techniques we have nowadays to communicate and stay connected with one another. I like the part that talks about how important your public image is and what exactly images do to use and how they are used to communicate ideas. I also think that Wikis and blogging are important to spread ideas and to use your own words to express how you feel and what you think.
For the Slender Man, web storytelling enabled the character to grow as a character and for the imagination of the readers and storytellers to grow. The creation of him sparked an interest among the peers and he was only added onto and built up more and more as time went on. I think that the creation of the Slender Man into the Marble Hornets is a new means of storytelling. Although I’m sure when creating new shows or characters, people sat around and came up with ideas together. This form of storytelling seems new because it is all done online through Open-Source. I enjoy the thought of people working together not face-to-face to come up with an idea for something great. I see “digital” as creating that different aspect to storytelling. There is traditional storytelling where things are made up or true and just being told and there is digital story telling that creates a picture in your mind and gives the reader something to build off of.
One night my parents decided it would be a good idea to take our family to a haunted house type thing that was being held in the woods at a near by park. The night was pitch black and the air had a certain crisp to it. It felt like any other typical Fall night. We all loaded onto the back of a trailer being hauled by a giant, loud tractor. The hay ride on the back of a tractor was supposed to be a family-friendly attraction. As we are sitting on top of hay bail in a trailer, things are popping out and scaring us. It wasn’t too bad until all of a sudden, a man wearing a mask and all black came jumping out of the trees with a chainsaw and chased the trailer. Everyone was screaming and kids even started crying on the hay ride. To this day, my dad still does not know if the man with the chainsaw was supposed to be there but it was one of the scariest experiences of my life.
