The Break

Sometimes you need some extra convincing before you'll accept the truth.

Since Paul played both the banshee and Susan's boyfriend part of me wants to believe that Susan knew John would be in denial and set up the whole thing.

Also, sweet Jesus, those effects. I don't even.

Playfully, aren't banshees supposed to be female? Begrudgingly, I guess that could have been a female.

First, I do not see "Doom Booties" getting old for me any time soon. It's too funny. :)

Second, I think showing Paul's hair at the end seemed a little like showing Kathleen's hair in "In Death as in Life" where nothing you showed would measure up to what was going on in my head.

All in all, though, I loved it.

Good job, especially with the banshee effects
I actually expected Paul to look like a Conehead. Dunno why

Well yes, they are female spirits. But then, what makes you think it wasn't? With all those effects and the costume, that could just have been Paul and you wouldn't notice.

I think the "stuck his head in a pencil sharpener" joke was actually funnier with just the tiny bit of hair sticking up. I guessed that all of his hair would be stuck up in a sort of triangle, pencil-y shape, but... yeah, that was better.

Overall, well done! It's not often that I support Cameron's character (though I'm sure he's a perfectly nice guy in real life), but what can I say? The banshee and the incriminating text mesasge swayed me. His delivery of "Yeah, I can see how that's open to interpretation" was spot on. :D

As soon as the Banshee showed up, I was like, "holy shit, this is such a Paul script." And I was right! Ha!

Paul's hair at the end looked more like a mechanical pencil, but I guess that doesn't roll off the tongue quite as well.

I thought this was quite funny! I chuckled in a few spots. Also very convincing acting on the part of all the players.

Also I love Kathleen's hat in this. <3

Paul is "The dead body" and I hope this video establishes him as being "Death/Death like character" as well

But if Paul dies then Also Paul has to escort him to the netherworld? It could be problematic.

Okay so if Paul dies and he's also death, then death dies and everyone lives no matter what, and thus Paul can't die which keeps him alive as death. But then... *The person posting this comment has had a brain implosion, please hang up immediately and try your call again. This is a recording*

Or was it 23?

The blog post calls it "Je ne sais Cam." I call it, "Cam is strangely hypnotic."

And I mean that as a compliment. Cam has this interesting combination of calmness and sincerity that means I would believe almost anything he says, just because he says it with such sincere conviction.

Cam, please don't use this power for evil. My bank account isn't large enough to support you.

I would otherwise believe Cam is the ultimate seduction robot, but he cannot dance.

This either means that he is imperfect and therefore not a robot, or that our robot overlords have glitchy dancing algorithms and thus we have a way to identify them without dissection.

(But yeah, Cam has that vibe that makes his performances especially believable.)

I really want to see the Banshee as a recurring character.


THE DIET


Scene: (Interior Apartment) Graham in 80's type exercise garb and eatinga cheesecake whilst playing MTGO.

(Phone Blips with Twitter Message)
Message from Kathleen: Don't eat any of the cheesecake in the fridge, it is for a party tonight. Remember you are on a diet.

Graham Message Reply: Not even a little? I have been doing so well I thought I would take a break from the diet for a bit. You know, reward myself.

(The Lights Flicker and dim, the banshee enters)

BANSHEE: I am the Banshee, I wail at the deaths of Heroes and Legends. I wailed at the death of Arthur, I wailed at the death
of Achilles, and now I wail for your diet.

Graham: But I'm just taking a little break.

BANSHEE: I do not wail for breaks.

Graham: You're jumping to conclusions.

BANSHEE: You're eating half a cheesecake and show no signs of stopping.

Graham: Well, this is desert. A treat for a job well done.

BANSHEE: Your dinner was a pecan pie.

Graham: It has nuts. Nuts are good for you.

BANSHEE: I DO NOT WAIL IDLY. AND I WAIL FOR YOUR DIET.

(Banshee fades away)

Graham takes another bite of cheesecake.

So how many breakup videos has Cam been in now? In Past Mistakes, James had broken up, Socially Awkward was about Kathleen's past relationships with social networks, and now this... Careful Cam, they're typecasting you!
