  1. Scream could be a possibility, if people wanted to see it. Keyword if.
  2. In other words, if Scream doesn't come it's because not enough people want it. Post Punk is probably Insidious. It would make sense.
  3. "Objectives: Future thinking is an important domain of cognitive functioning, with reduced ability to imagine positive future events associated with hopelessness in depression and parasuicide. Rumination has been shown to exacerbate negative cognitive biases in depression, and to reduce likelihood estimations for positive future events. We examine the hypothesis that, in depressed patients, rumination would reduce the ability to imagine positive future events, whilst increasing the ability to imagine negative future events. Method: The ability to imagine positive and negative future events was assessed using the future thinking paradigm (MacLeod, Rose, & Williams, 1993). Depressed and nondepressed participants completed the future thinking task after being randomly allocated to either a rumination or distraction manipulation (Nolen-Hoeksema & Morrow, 1993). Mood was measured before and after the manipulation. Participants also completed a standard verbal fluency task. Results: In the depressed group, compared to distraction, rumination increased both negative and positive future thinking, although the effect was only significant for negative future thinking once baseline levels of hopelessness were controlled for. These findings are consistent with the prediction that rumination would increase negative future thinking, but inconsistent with the prediction that rumination would reduce positive future thinking. Previous findings that, compared to controls, depressed patients generated fewer positive future events were replicated. Conclusion: Ruminative self-focus leads to greater negative future thinking in depressed patients, further confirming that rumination exacerbates negative cognitive biases in depression. The relationship between rumination and positive future thinking was unexpected, but might potentially reflect a general priming of self-related information by rumination."

  5. I know. And it's true that Murdy said it's at least one of the reasons it didn't happen. A lot of people here get so caught up with believing that Murdy "let them down" because he didn't do this or that that they forget that a lot of the stuff that they "don't get" can really easily be explained if you have a less reactionary state of mind. And because they get caught up in that, they end up being unsatisfied while the people they knock for being "casual fans" end up actually enjoying the event. You can keep up this "speculation" if you want, but you are only taking away from your future satisfaction.

  7. Ok. Let's say Murdy comes out and says that Suge Knight held him over a ledge and told him to keep AHS out of HHN. Now what? Either way, the event is going to be what the event is going to be.
  8. That's a good attitude to have. A lot of on the forum are responsible for their own misery though.
  9. If you worry about something, especially something you can't control, you end up enjoying it less. There are scientific studies that support this.
  10. There's no point in trying to find out why a maze (or anything about the event) did or didn't happen. What do any of you plan to do with that information?
  11. You'll all end up going and having a great time. What good has worrying and whining about the IPs ever done?

      Didn't get the value last year. Was very unhappy with the event. Still on the fence if I'm going. IP's are irrelevant though. The issue lies far deeper than IPs

  12. Can't spec-u-late any mooooooreeee! If you stop being such control freaks with what HHN "needs" you'll enjoy the event much more. Really. If you are worried about enjoying the event, just let it go, let it go.
  13. http://www.thebestbrainpossible.com/responding-rather-than-reacting/ HHN 2015 Planning Tip: Wait for the mazes to be announced. You'll enjoy the event more the less time you spend expecting it to let you down.
  14. Why should they? They already tried a year with no shows and it went over better than any other year.
  15. I don't think Murdy feels that there is a real need for a show. And since last year was the most successful year and the only year with no shows, I can't say he's wrong.
  16. You can only have so many young fanboys tell you that you are "being lazy" during your 90 hour work week before you make a joke or two.
