Everything shall be on the author's deviantART journal and there is a feed to go with it.

Neuroticfish Redoes It

"They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!" redone by a hard rock(is) band called "Neuroticfish". While like most bands, it eventually broke and the only thing that remains is it's music.

They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa! : Neuroticfish

Not much else to say on the subject but that they need a new name. Why do rock bands, especially metal bands, insist on such horrible names? I suppose that is a topic for another day but if you wish to answer this question now, I'd not be upset on the matter.

Napoleon XIV

An oldie but goodie, has to be some of the songs by Napoleon XIV.

Wiki Says:
Napoleon XIV was the pseudonym of American singer-songwriter and record producer Jerry Samuels (born 03 May 1938, New York), who achieved one-hit wonder status with the Top 5 hit novelty song "They're Coming to Take Me Away Ha-Haaa!" in 1966.
The problem with this is that it isn't exactly accurate. As there is actually a female in his group, who sings songs that go along with the hit "They're Coming to Take Me Away Ha-Haaa!". It doesn't matter and I could be incorrect. Here is the combination of songs that is "They're Coming to Take Me Away Ha-Haaa!" as well as it's accompanying storyline.

Random One Liners

A Finnish friend of mind links me to an odd Finnish site which has some things that are either in English or don't have any words to them and are funny anyway. Again, a good chunk of the site is in Finnish and it's a bit NSFW at times, but it could be a lot worse. I'd give credit to the original cartoonist but I can't seem to find/her. If anyone can/could, I would appreciate that.

Holy Not Getting Any Sleep, Batman!

Once again, my sleep cycle is all over the place. With having the amount of time I do and the situations that are presented, sometimes sleep is missed. By missed, I don't mean like I'm sorry that we parted but more like I forgot to pick it up at the airport.

No big deal, it just means that blog posts are not going to be scheduled as often as they were being. This one, however, is a scheduled post.

As for actual blog news:

Grateful for my readers and their suggestions. I recently updated the suggestion thread to show all the threads that were given to me as a suggestion. Some of those are direct suggestions to Solve Unamusement or for my blog and others are not. If you noticed something you suggested not on the list, please inform me.

Otherwise, all is well and Solve Unamusement is moving well and fast. Might need to check some font sizes, however, as I saw they look a bit funny on other screens then mind. Please inform of this, as well.

As always, many thanks and keep reading.

Interactive Fiction

Also known as iFiction or just IF, there is a odd little gaming community out there that needs be pointed too. Generally, these games play like a storybook, choose your own adventure.

Some early examples would be zork I, II and III these games are nothing but that of IF and only require you to spell simple works and understand simple concepts.

Such games are usually lacking in graphics and usually play like reading a single player mud. However, such games have a lot better story then a mud, and don't require you to trust others around you.

Some of the mechanics I found on simple explanation sites made it sound similar to emulation, but that is only the case when actually dealing with DOS games. Most seem to be broken into two parts.

One part of the game is the actual game and the other is it's personal OS. Each game has to run on multiple operating systems and separating the run sequences from the game itself makes sure that more people play them.

This is due to the size of IF community itself.

A flash based, IF that was directly suggested to myself for its simplicity, shortness and general noob friendly attitude of it can be found here and in the side bar. the side bar link is located under individual flash games, although that is technically not correct.

Warning: These things require you know how to read and spell.

Racist Rabbit

A 1940's cartoon that was banned from the television for racism. The racism is very obvious with the one character being a horrible stereotype beyond an understanding for even the 1940's but the cartoon itself is just mediocre.

Several of the jokes are done several times and could have been done better. One of those being the "Sucker", which is done something around four times. An alternative, which has gotten other cartoons banned but as this one was banned anyway, would be the "jackass" image.

Souther Fried Rabbit

While I understand why it was banned, the cartoon isn't that funny. Yes, it is worth a chuckle and yes it's horribly racist on many levels. However, labeling the youtube video racist and racism absurd. I think "Banned" or "Banned from TV" would have done very well.

The Annoying Orange

Really, that title says everything there is. It's a funny little animated series about an irritating little orange that likes to harass his fellow produce. I'm sure we've all met that annoying guy. If you were my case, that was you and you enjoyed being irritating every second of the day.

Right now the series is on it's third show and each one is, in my opinion, at least worth a quick chuckle. Here, check a look at the playlist for it.
