  1. Well, what I heard was wrong. The quote was from Sphere. It appears I heard wrong. I heard the house called an underwater Interstellar Terror. Sphere is, basically, an underwater Event Horizon. We have creatures, though.
  2. The Forsaken was the house version of Dead Man’s Wharf. In case I’m asleep when the announcement happens and my connection is correct (I had 2 hrs of sleep. I’m running a caffeine and crazy), here’s a quote: ”What happens if Jerry gets mad?”
  3. One can hope. I may have finally made a connection. I should have seen it awhile ago. I’ll have to wait for the announcement to confirm it, but it’ll be interesting if I’m right. There’s a movie that may have inspired the house. Not the obvious ones we’ve discussed, though.
  4. Soon is now. We will know if all holds by tomorrow.
  5. Maybe? A quick calculation based on the permit fee tells me the partition is going to cost about $5,400. I would think there are cheaper ways to do so. They’ve used curtains in the soundstages to separate things in the past. I don’t know. And with all the rumors about KZ eventually getting overhauled and the potential for that building getting demolished, it just seems like an odd expense choice.
  6. It’s not really a matter of anyone releasing the permit. Permits fall under Florida’s Sunshine law. They are required to be accessible to the public. Permits are pulled based on when construction starts and when the contractor pulls the permit. There is leeway with how soon the contractor has to pull the permit after construction has begun. We, also, have to wait for the permits to be placed on the Orlando permit site. Permits seem to have had a small delay this year when it comes to being placed on the site. We only have 5 house permits. New Parade (B108), all three tents, and SS22. We know we are getting 10 houses, so we haven’t been overly worried about a lack of permits, but we have been wondering where the others are. I don't think this indicates there won’t be a house in B79, but I am trying to figure out why a partition is being built.
  7. New permit: BLD2019-14528. It is for B79, but I don’t think it’s for the house. The fee amount isn’t enough for it to be for a house. The description states interior partition.
  8. The announcement of Monsters, and where it falls on the house grid, showed that placement isn’t as clear cut as original vs IP and announcement order. There is a slot between StrTh and UCM. Yes. The website setup isn’t consistent with a definitive IP/Original split off point. Monsters is an original take on IPs. It’s is no different than Cabin, Thing: Assimilation, and ‘07 NoES. It’s a strange hybrid.
  9. Have I told you lately that I like you? Biggest pet peeve from this year is the cryptid misnomer. My guess is someone has Sasquatch or Bigfoot trademarked. I’ve been silently fuming about this. Graveyard house: We are apparently talking about the house I was referring to earlier now. The final original. This would be the one that doesn’t make thematic sense to me.
  10. #eventually! I’m not sure what the next house announcement will be. It’s the only house that I currently don’t understand based what little I know. Unsure at this time. Most likely not, but I’m always cynically hopeful. You keep answering my questions, and you answer correctly. Out of my head, please. There’s already too many people in there. Now for the why I’m hopeful. 5/5 still seems to be in play. The announcement/house grid on the site is weird. The way things are spaced is just not visually appealing, unless there are other reasons for the spacing. If the spacing is based on importance/fan reception, we must ask: What original would be more important than Nightingales? And there’s a house that doesn’t make sense to me. It could simply be a matter of simplicity. I see far more potential and want more, but the house theming is simple/more basic. It’s my only means of speculation at the moment, and I miss speculating.
  11. There’s something that doesn’t thematically make sense to me at the moment. My brain is trying to figure that out. I’m a storyteller. I, always, try to figure out the story.
  12. I’m alive and kicking and screaming and I am still not ok. The announcement was a decent diversion, but I was distracted by something on another forum that I’ve been trying to figure out. It’s maintained the majority of my focus today. If I can get an answer to a question I asked, it may help me piece some things together. Yay!! Announcement!! And we are moving on... If I get an answer I may prime the pump by dropping hints to get you all the speculate. More minds are always better at figuring things out.
  13. I admitted I was being snarky and mean. Not really being serious with that comment. I firmly believe the primary issue is what I stated. There’s a fight over the sandbox and neither side is willing to concede and compromise. There are creative elements to marketing, but there are minds who have invested years into building a mythos. I, being a creator for the art , better understand the minds protecting their mythos. I understand the defensive posture. I, also, find it degrading for individuals to step in and say “Jack is the only icon who can sell” and then have others create two figure heads. And yes, until they can work together, I think Marketing should stick to creating the marketing and A&D stick to creating the stories. Why? Because horror is a genre that is greatly harmed by the cliches/popularisms that an effective marketing department should focus on. Appealing to the masses is the marketing goal. They’ve done good with that, but I feel it will harm the brand in the end. Horror isn’t appealing to the masses. It’s niche. It’s always been niche. What happens when there is no TWD or AHS or StrTh? They aren’t going to last. It’s been good years for horror fans, but it’s tenuous. It’s not permanent. The cycle of popularity will end. It always does. Edit: Roddy left in 2009. It was a thing. Not going to go into that further. Don’t ask, but there was a thing.
  14. Those who truly create and those who think they can? That was snarky and mean of me. Simple. You ever create something and someone comes along and tries to play in the world you built? You get a little possessive. And when those newcomers force their frivolous ideas onto your world, you becomes even more possessive and jaded. Marketing needs to stick to marketing and stay and stay out of the creative world.
  15. The one night I’m finally able to sleep. Universal is twittering away at 3:30 in the morning. *facepalm*
  16. Considering Jon Snow is still dead in the books, I’d say the show has diverged. It’s actually surpassed the books. No one knows anything anymore. Several characters have be merged into other characters. Pod, Missandei, and Grey Worm have grown more than their book counterparts. Missandei is about 10 when Dani first meets her. Daryl type characters, no. And to keep this HHN related: GoT has some excellent horror iconography, but the appeal to the show for me has always been the characters. I’m not sure I’d be happy with a house due to this.
  17. I was hoping for an announcement this week so I could have something to focus on after the Battle of Winterfell. I am not going to be ok Monday. I’ll be a blithering mess Sunday night. I apologize in advance if I start to randomly create crazy spec starting around 10:30pm Sunday night. It will be my coping mechanism. In other news:
  18. Forum was down when we went on about it on IU. Had to get the ball rolling somehow.
  19. Quoting again to thank you for adding another title to my twitter bio.. “Mystique, of the House Phreeq, the first of Her name, Queen of Spec and Rumors, Keeper of Lore, Dasher of Dreams, Solver of Riddles, and Protector of The Fandom” Forums are functioning folk. Let’s keep things moving forward! Let’s keep things Creepy! The Show must go on!
