Finally, let’s explain these two movies.

Greetings true believers. I’m just gonna get right into it. The whole “Serious Business Saga” (DDR and Pump it Up: TWP) actually make a lot of sense believe it or else.

In case you haven’t already figured it out. It’s a huge allegory for…

AN INTERNET FORUM.

 

We have Derek, he’s like the new user on the block. Doesn’t quite have an avatar yet. Doesn’t know how to handle things correctly. Get’s mixed up with Team Z, our film equivalent of trolls.

What then ensues is what happens on any internet forum… pettiness, trolling, and a heapload of fucking butthurt. It’s really quite crazy at times. But like what any troll, they can be taken down with a little help… and practice. In all my days on internet forums, I have never seen a troll get taken down alone. That theme is there with Wolfen and company banding together to take down this threat. That’s why I sometimes call it “Internet: The Movie”.

Now we move to the sequel, that we’re doing now. It takes place about a short while later.

We continue with our analogy at this point. We have Yvette, who’s seen the glories of dancing games and wants a piece for herself. Much like those asking to be a mod on a forum… even though everyone hates them. We have Aaron, who’s the elite of elites… the guy who really runs things who finally sees what the hell is going on and tries to fix it. In this case, it’s literally sending people out to murder those who would otherwise mess things up.

We have John’s Mom, Evelyn who basically the same as Aaron, but handles things a little more directly.

Maya then becomes the moderator. The one who is in charge of keeping the peace at all costs. In this case, it involves even more killing.

Then we have Lily, Ryzen’s mom. You know that guy that always butts in where they’re truly not welcome or needed? That’s Lily.

All and all, the double feature is just the internet converted for your movie viewing pleasure

That’s all the detail I care to go into right now, I’ll have more clips and stuff over the next few weeks as we finish up.

 

 

Beasting

One thing I really wanted to do with the movie this time around is have some more intense dance game scenes. I know some of my actors aren’t players at all and a few have never actually seen the game played well.

Leroy and I intend to be in that tip top shape when it comes time for arrow stomp sequences. I don’t have Pump in The Lab, but I sure as hell got stepmania and a Blueshark pad. So… we spent the night just beasting out some songs and just trying to get some sort of arrow based stamina and know-how back.

Took a while to finally break the pad in, and I need to get a chair that isn’t low as fuck -________-

Nonetheless, we had a great time, and there will be more beasting to come, that’s for damn sure.

Sore as fuck right now, about to go back to more beasting in the morning. Good idea or best idea?
