Dreams Come To Life: Everything Has Changed!!

2020.08.16 01:38 theadbot12 Dreams Come To Life: Everything Has Changed!!

Okay, I know this book came out last year so everyone already knows this, but MatPat to date still has not made a video covering this book, so I'm gonna do it for him. The book follows the protagonist Buddy, who has just received an apprenticeship of sorts at Joey Drew Studios. He meets a lot of characters from the game (including that random Allison cameo lol) and tries to solve the mystery behind the studio. Bla, bla, bla, let's skip to the highlights. This book completely changes how we viewed the ink machine, the characters, and the identity of some of the inky guys. Spoilers ahead. So first of all, let me point out that Joey and Wally are still alive in the book, and Bendy is there, so it's confirmed that neither of them can be Bendy. Also, Tom and Allison are dating so it (ugh) confirms the Cyboris/Allison ship. Tom and Allison, destined to remain together even as inky guys...It's just so beautiful. I'm getting off-topic, though. Now for the good bits. [SPOILERS] Sorry, those who want no spoilers to the book. Read the book first. Sammy Lawrence. You all know and love him. He is at least my favorite character in the BATIM continuum, but that's beside the point. Oh, psychopathic villains with sympathetic backstories, I hope as a trend you never die. (Side note: Sammy was a huge jerk even before he became an evil cultist man.) Anyway, the story starts for him when he runs screaming at Buddy because the pipe in his closet broke and he's covered in ink. Long story short, the ink is...magical? And it like...makes people go crazy? And that's how Sammy became a nut? So when Sammy swallowed the ink, he started to go crazy and then, like, started drinking large amounts of ink. I told you this book was nuts. Or at least you're picking that up at this point. Norman confirms that that is partially what the ink machine does. It turns the ink into something...different. Something alive. Something that, when used to draw, causes the drawings to slide off the page. The ink even tried to crawl into Buddy's grandfather's mouth. So my theory on the matter? The ink is liquid Searchers. Alice Angel describes being a Searcher as 'a buzzing screaming well of voices' and as 'a wiggling, pulsing, shapeless slug' which makes sense seeing as the creatures are made of ink and the ink can, you know, move. Done. But it also pulls up an interesting matter on the nature of Lost Ones. Often times the ink is described as "consuming", in the context of Sammy and Buddy's friend, Jacob, who also becomes a corrupted thing like Sammy. It is my theory that this is how Lost Ones are made. You just swallow the essence of Searcher or whatever. They are, quite literally, 'lost' to the ink. This also possibly means that Henry becomes a Lost One too, which is why they don't attack him when he's alone but they do when he's with Allison and Tom. Also, the biggest twist in the book: Buddy is confirmed to be the true, 'perfect' Boris. He dies at the end, only to be 'saved' by Joey. He legitimately becomes Boris, and we know that it's the Boris from chapter 3 because Joey describes him as 'perfect'. Even creepier, considering that Henry calls him "Buddy" throughout the game. So with all that said, where's Wally? Who is the true identity of Bendy? And what happened to Joey? Let's discuss on that later. Seriously, I would love to hear what you think.
In the meantime, that's JUST A THEORY.

2020.06.04 21:30 Puterboy1 Open minded reviews on the DCOMs of 1999

It has been twenty years since the dusk of the 1st millennium and the dawn of the second one and it reminds us of how old we’ve been getting since 1999, a time of hip dances, great music, oncoming video games and even movies. Theatrical releases like Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, The Matrix and The Green Mile were international hits, but it’s mostly the made-for-television films that make us feel closer to home. To be precise, the Disney Channel Original Movies, which began since the channel’s inception in 1983 with the baseball film Tiger Town, under the banner “Disney Channel Premiere Films”. Following this, a number of other great movies from the likes of The Blue Yonder, The Parent Trap sequels, the Not Quite Human trilogy, Mother Goose Rock ‘n’ Rhyme, Perfect Harmony, Susie Q, Wish Upon a Star and finally, The Paper Brigade were produced, but we’ll get to the movies that most 90s kids know and love that began in 1997, from a sophisticated and philosophical perspective.
The first Disney Channel Original Movie was (supposedly) Northern Lights, starring Diane Keaton and Joseph Cross, which was derived from a 1988 stage play about a woman receiving legal custody over her late brother’s son. In a semi-realistic portrayal of a child’s life with a new caregiver, it has it shares of quirks and bizarre circumstances that all seem to culminate in a comic ending.
The second Disney Channel Original Movie (officially the first as of 2019) was Under Wraps, an odd fantasy of a trio of kids finding a mummy who comes to life in the basement of an abandoned mansion. External sympathy is balanced between the children and the mummy when they learn that he will cease to exist if he does not go back to his coffin before midnight. It also deals with taming one’s internal fears of monsters and the unknown, for even mummies deserve love and attention.
You Lucky Dog is just about as complex as the climatic case between three greedy relatives and a dog therapist with the ability to understand a dog’s thoughts, accompanied by a Saint Bernard-Golden Retriever mix christened, of all names, Lucky. Living a dog’s lifestyle and mannerisms is not all that easy and having such a telekinetic ability is enough to make a lot of dog owners completely envious in real life.
It is difficult to say that Brink could be a precursor to the Xbox game Jet Set Radio Future, but rather it is a modern take on the story of Hans Brinker or the Silver Skates with its themes of extreme skating and choosing who you feel most affiliated with before it becomes hard to tell which side you belong on. Family is also an important issue, as the protagonist Brink has to deal with his family’s financial problems, which puts a strain on this Faustian tale where the devil is played by the rogue skater Val.
In the footsteps of Under Wraps, the Disney Channel returned to Halloween aesthetics with 1998’s Halloweentown and it’s three sequels, which told the story of Debbie Reynolds playing an elderly witch who has to defeat an impending darkness that threatens her home with the help of her three grandchildren. The film had proven to be so popular that St. Helens, Oregon, where the movie was filmed even decorates its town square to resemble the titular location during the Halloween season, with special appearances by Kimberley J. Brown, who plays Marnie Piper in the film.
The books that the Zenon movies are based upon provide a bit more background on the titular protagonist’s life aboard a space station as well as the futuristic slang than what the script has to offer. The first movie deals with a classical case of a young girl trying to tell the truth but no one believes her as well as an unorthodox method of grounding that sees our young heroine spending an unspecified amount of time on Earth with her Aunt Judy (in the first book, Zenon has to spend the summer holidays on her grandparents’ farm doing old-fashioned chores). In spite of this, the truth always does prevail, and like any other heroine living between two worlds, she always manages to save the day.
Can of Worms also deals with space themes, but in any similarity to the novel it was based on is purely coincidental. It could have gone deeper into the psychological analyzing of existentialism and finding one’s purpose, but at least in the end, you come to accept for who you really are, human or alien. The title of the film serves its purpose as a distress call and the worms are viewed as another term for “alien”.
The Thirteenth Year could be seen as a modern-day retelling of Hans Christian Anderson’s The Little Mermaid, but using a boy’s transformation from human to merman as an allegory for puberty is a pretty odd choice. The underwater sequences are atmospheric as well as the music that accompanies it, serving as one of the film’s strongest points. However, it also has its responsibilities of hiding the future of a new life that is bestowed upon by protagonist Cody Griffin. The more Cody has to hide his secret, the more he has to accept the responsibility of confessing his true nature to his loved ones.
The following film Smart House also dealt with another thirteen-year old’s problems. This time filling in for the role of a mother, whose death is not explained in full detail to avoid poorly executed exposition. His attempts at trying to keep his father from dating another woman to prevent his mom’s memory from being erased is a pretty unique switch on how some children want a new mother while the father finds it difficult in gaining a relationship to fill the void left behind by his wife. The film also serves as a template and a milestone in the development of smart home technology and how it’s AI system can learn from it without going overboard. The home’s computerized housekeeper Pat (played by Katey Segal) is the real hero of the story. In my eyes, she isn’t really a villain, but rather, like the robotic character of Weebo from the 1997 Flubber remake, she is simply misunderstood and underappreciated and longs to become human in order to get closer to her new occupants, despite the fact she may never be nothing more than a machine.
Johnny Tsunami is a tale of fire and ice, or heat and snow in this case with its sports themes of surfing and snowboarding. Having to move from Hawaii to Vermont (which was actually the winter capped areas of Utah where those scenes were filmed) is one thing, but having to deal with a feud between two brothers is another story entirely. Amidst the Dead Poets Society aesthetics of boarding school and strict rules, with Kirsten Storms’ character Emily helping our protagonist in certain circles, it is the character’s middle-aged grandfather who brings peace to his son’s negative views on surfing as well as the peace between the aforementioned feud.
Genius, which stars Trevor Morgan as the protagonist, feels like a case of mistaken identity as our young scientist tries to lead the double life of being a good boy and a bad boy, all the while being tutored by a girl slightly older than him named Claire. Emmy Rossum, the actress who plays Claire, gives the character a sarcastic (sometimes) choice of dialogue and it is she who drives Morgan’s desire to be close to her. As with Johnny Tsunami before it, another ice related sport plays a role in this film: hockey.
Don’t Look Under the Bed is just as mysterious as The Twilight Zone, but with a greater moral at hand that any child should be reminded of. If you stop believing in an imaginary friend too soon, that figure will turn into a bogeyman. But could any of that happen to your own imaginary friend? Only you can decide. It also serves as a mystery that’s relatable in the real world, with adults trying to find a “perfectly logical explanation” for all of the strange occurrences.
Horse Sense unites two of the Lawrence brothers, Andrew and Joey, has them portrayed as cousins and builds a story based on responsibility and maturity. Michael, Joey’s character, has put too much of own social life on full focus in favor of his cousin, so he has to go to Tommy’s ranch in order to help him out on his own, while learning about the importance and needs of others along the way. The classic save-the-ranch plot is one of typical findings in a family feature, but the depiction of land trusts, finances and other banking related materials is something that only real estate agents will completely understand.

2020.05.17 20:31 Jimmy-Mac-471 Bendy and the Ink Machine story write up Chapter 2

So this is a follow up from my last post and I've explained what I'm doing in that one. To recap, I'm writing the story of BATIM as if it were a novelisation. I'm not too much of a writer but I'm doing this more for myself rather than anything else. If you like it, feel free to let me know. And only constructive criticism please if you have any.
My last post covered chapter one, and that did well enough, so here is Chapter two.
Bendy and the Ink Machine story
Chapter Two: The Old Song
We are always told that after a fall, there will always be another rise. This tale has no rise. I had been dreaming. For how long? I don’t know. I dreamt I was at home sitting at the breakfast table. Linda was talking about all sorts of stuff. The state of her friends' dress sense. The price of butter today. Reminiscing about when we were younger. I was either reading the paper or doing the crossword, being sure that I placed a good response at the right time to keep her talking. I hear men say that they hate it when their wives talk too much, but I could never get enough of her voice. But then the mail man placed a letter in the mailbox, and she went out to get it, and I was alone.
I was alone. My head was thudding a dull but rhythmic beat. I sat up, rubbing my eyes, adjusting to the light, before seeing where I was. “Oh yeah. Evil cult worship space.” I sat up, looking at the coffins against the wall. I decided it was probably best not to touch them. I had no idea if there was anybody in there, but I could only take so much that day. Looking around, I found the axe I dropped. Strangely enough, it was leaning against one of the coffins. I had fully blacked out and dropped it after having held it in my right hand, and now it was leaning quite neatly on the coffin to my left. Just as I had done before, I brushed it off. I’m slightly worried thinking back. How could I have not understood the implications of how it had got there? This was just the first in a long list of clues I would later see. I was not alone. But I didn’t realise until it was too late.
Grabbing the axe, I looked at the way I had come. It was now blocked by a waterfall of ink, seeping into the boards beneath it. I then looked to the door ahead of me. I was not crazy about moving further forward after seeing the coffins. It was barred, but with one swing, the boards came loose. It led to a staircase, with the sign “Utility shaft 9” above the stairway. Going down, I saw more writing. Candles were lit on a small ledge on the wall, and a smaller Bendy cutout was placed next to the writing. It read “HE WILL SET US FREE”. Who’s He? Surely this couldn’t be referring to Bendy… Bendy!
My memory had been hazy until then, but I remembered my visions. That, thing, chasing me on the upper level, was Bendy. But how? Bendy’s not real. He’s a cartoon that I made years ago. How could he be real? And who was worshipping him? Looking at the ink writing, I realised that it was still wet. Whoever had written this had done so recently. So there was somebody else down here. Looking to the side, I saw there were offerings. A bowl, with what looked like ink was under the writing and next to that was a tin. I had no idea how long I had been down here, but I suddenly realised I hadn’t eaten in hours. I picked it up and looked. “Briar Label Bacon Soup.” Ugh. That honestly sounded disgusting, and the expiry date didn’t make it seem any better. A rumble in my stomach however, suddenly made it seem more appealing. It was easy to open and I glugged it down. I couldn’t figure out what the taste was, but I can say with certainty that it wasn’t bacon. Looking back into the tin, I was astonished to see that it was black, similar to ink. But it wasn’t ink. At least I think it wasn’t. At least I hope it wasn’t.
I looked around the space and found another audio log. I was hoping that this would be from Wally again, and tell me something about this place, but there were a lot more ink stains on this one, some were still wet. Somebody had done this recently as well. I clicked the button and was shocked at the voice coming from it.
Image of Sammy's first audio tape
“I said, can I get an amen?” I spun around quickly. That last one was most certainly from the tape, but it came from behind me. Absolutely no one was there, but it had sounded so close. That voice was of Sammy Lawrence, the music director of the studio. Sammy was hired by Joey and I rarely saw him. He was uptight and preferred to keep himself to himself. He always seemed so overworked. Poor Sammy. So tragic… So he made the tape and it was most certainly his voice I had heard. So he was in here somewhere. Passing more coffins, posters and offerings I eventually found a small corridor that was flooded with ink. Well, my shoes were already ruined, what harm could this much do that hadn’t already been done? Wading through I noticed movement in the darkness ahead of me. It looked like a human figure, walking across the hall that the door led too. He was holding a cutout, but I couldn’t make out anything about them. “Hello! Excuse me! Can you help me! Hello?” Nothing. I hurriedly moved across the hall and followed the direction he’d gone in and then I stopped. “Where the hell did he go?” There was only a wall. Black footprints led to the wall, but they just stopped as whoever it had been was gone. The cutout was leaning against the wall with a similar looking circle to the one I had passed out in behind it.
I decided I must have been losing my mind, heading instead the other way. I flicked a few power switches and opened the door. Turning I looked at a large statue of Bendy. How strange? It was perfectly made, Joey must have had it made, and knowing him and his advertising scheme, there were likely many more around this place. The next room was pitch black. So dark, and with very little light. Looking around I found another staircase heading downwards. I started down, but I saw that the stairwell was completely flooded at the bottom. “For god's sake, how much of this ink is there?” Little did I know, I hadn’t seen the half of it. On the wall was a lever with a power switch. I pulled it and the lights came on. A large sign stated that I was in the Music Department. That made a lot of sense as to why Sammy might be down here. Stepping towards the sign, I heard a slurping groan. Several ink puddles on the floor started moving. Large slimy blobs of ink rose up. They had long arms, no legs and formless faces. They lunged towards me, their arms outstretched. I dodged a couple of them and then swung my axe. It went through them in an instant, causing them to dissipate and seep into the floor. I continued hacking through them until they were all gone.
Breathing heavily, I just stood there. “What, in the actual hell, was happening here?” Bendy was alive somehow, Sammy was worshipping him, Joey seemed to have dug a chasm to put all this in and now, the ink itself was alive and trying to kill me. After collecting myself and getting ready to go ahead, I found a new log. It was Sammy again, only this one was a lot older, and he sounded more mentally stable in it.
Image of Sammy's second audio tape
“Are you kidding me?”
A pump in Sammy’s office? Well no wonder he went crazy working under these conditions. Looking to my left, I noticed that restoring power had opened a new passage. Down the corridor was Sammy’s office. This would be simple enough. All I had to do was get in and turn the release pump on to clear the… Oh. Great. A burst pipe was showing the doorway in ink. The high pressurised stream would make it impossible to get in. There was no way I could get to the door through that way. So I instead had to release the pressure on this pipe before I could go in the office and drain the ink from the stairwell. This just got more and more complicated as I went along.
Backtracking, I found another stairwell that led to the infirmary. What kind of jobs in an animation studio that required an on site infirmary, I would never know. I decided to move backwards some more. Next to the music department sign was a staircase that led to a projector room. There was another audio log next to it, but I already knew who had made it before I even turned it on. Norman Polk.
Image of Norman's audio tape
Ah, Norman. He was a nice enough fellow. Like Sammy, he preferred to keep himself to himself. He stayed out of trouble, but had a keen eye for noticing it, without being noticed himself. I had so many days where I was just drawing at my desk and all of a sudden he was right behind me. Almost gave me a heart attack several times. And man could he talk. The guy was much more of a gossip than most of the women at the studio, only the difference was he was often correct in his suspicions. Norman. What became of you? I never truly knew…
The tape confirmed my suspicions that something was terribly wrong with Sammy. And it seemed like this had been happening for a while. The room below was too dark, and I couldn’t see what was in there, so I decided to head to the front door of the recording studio. I twisted the handle, and found it was locked. I gave it a shove, but found that this wasn’t moving. I debated trying to cut it down, but looking at the axe, I don’t know what would have broken first. I didn’t want the axe to break. It was my only defence against those, “things.” It took me a while before I found another audio log, and was happy to hear Wally speaking again.
Image of Wally's audio tape
Now this one made me chuckle. Like I said, Wally was clumsy. It was just like him to have misplaced his keys. He once locked the mens bathroom for the night and somehow lost the keys. The next day was agony as none of us could go. Wally was searching all over the studio and eventually found it in his mop bucket. So, on the advice of the log, I searched the garbage cans, and sure enough, I found it under a pile of screwed up paper balls. I opened the recording studio doors and looked into the large room, the lights coming on as I entered. Several instruments lay on the stage, where the musicians would sit and play along to the cartoons that Norman would project onto the screen. All of the instruments were covered in dust. Whoever had left them there must have been in a hurry. These were expensive, and some had personally belonged to the musicians. Inside was another audio log. This was beginning to get ridiculous. Sure, it was nice to hear their voices, but there were so many of them. This was a different voice though.
Image of Susie's audio tape
Her name was Susie Capmbell. She had been a young voice actress who had worked at the studio. She had originally started off with come minor rolls, but I saw her potential, and so decided to do her a favour. I created a new character for her. I made Alice Angel. Alice was to be the polar opposite to Bendy. The beautiful and kind angel to Bendys cheeky little devil. I had even based her design off of Susie. Joey seemed sceptical at first, thinking that he’d lose part of his target demographic with her. I think it was mainly Joey's own views on women. Joey had… traditional ideas of women in the workplace. At least, that’s how he would put it. I personally saw him as being medieval in his ideas about women. But, after seeing her in the cartoons, he changed his attitude so much, believing her to be one of the best characters that came out of his studio. Yes. HIS. Anyway. Susie had made it out of excitement of the opportunity that she was getting. Good for her. I had left before Alice had gained so much prominence, so I never saw what had happened. It’s a real shame what happened to you, Susie. So tragic…
By that, was a large shutter door next to another solo recording booth. Looking around I found no controls. I started wondering. For how long, I don’t know. I was looking through doors, eating soup and keeping an eye out for the creatures. Once or twice I thought I heard footsteps, but it turned out to be nothing. I eventually found a closet with another audio log from Sammy.
Image of Sammy's third audio tape
How in the hell did Sammy accomplish this? To have a completely hidden room under people's noses? It was worth a shot I guess. I dashed back to the studio, making sure that I turned on the projector first. I did get a feeling that the cutouts were moving, but I dismissed it. I was so naive, thinking I was alone. I was never alone. I headed to the instruments and played the sequence while the cartoon rolled. Sure enough, the shutter door screeched open, the metal and wood scraping together as it slowly rose off of the ground and open.
The room was small. Smaller than Sammy’s office. It was more like storage space rather than a workstation. There was another one of those symbols on the floor, next to a desk. A toilet, of all things, was against the wall. Written on the wall, was a strange sort of poem, written in the large inky letters as before. “SING A HAPPY SONG. WHISTLE A MERRY TUNE. WAIT FOR HIS ARRIVAL. HE’S COMING VERY SOON.” Who was coming and why did I have a feeling it wasn’t a good thing? I made a mental note of the writing and looked at the valve on the wall. Sammy must have been sick of these things. No matter where he went, these valves were around him.
I turned the rusty valve. It rattled as the ink went through it. I guessed that this would drain the stairway to the Infirmary. There, I would find the stitch to release the ink pressure. I turned back and stopped. A Bendy cutout popped its head around the doorway and rapidly backed out again. Were these things alive? I held my axe firm and moved towards the doorway. The projector had stopped, making the room darker. I looked towards the booth, and thought that I saw a figure standing by it. I was about to call out, when the floor erupted in ink. More of the creatures appeared. Lots more than before. I was surrounded by them. I swung my axe at one, sinking the blackened blade into its slimy skull, splitting it instantly. The creature sunk into the floor and I turned just in time to dodge the lunge of another, swinging at its elongated neck. After dealing with the second, a third struck me in the back. Dull pain filled my body, spreading from my back. My vision became blackened, and I stumbled, getting out of the way before I could be hit again. There were four more in the room. I dodged and weaved, hacked and slashed and kept going until all were dead.
I assessed my injury and felt a slight bruise. These things seemed not to hit too hard, but in large groups they could have dealt with me easily. There was a wet hand print on my back where it had struck, and ink had seemed to have run upwards towards my face. That explains why my vision became blackened when they hit. I later gathered that their preferred method of attack was coating me in ink. Every time I took a hit, my vision would become darker. If I avoided another hit then my vision would steadily get better. God only knows what would happen if I was completely coated in the stuff. They seemed different from the other type of ink that flooded the place, almost being living beings that could move through it.
I shook off the ink and pain, looking up again. The figure was gone, but they had been watching me. Testing me perhaps? I don’t know. I decided to head to the Infirmary. As I had guessed, the area was clear. A single creature jumped me, but this time I was ready, striking as soon as it got up. It didn’t stand a chance. The whole room was covered in ink, but many items became clear. More cutouts and a bed mostly. There was no medical equipment. It appeared to have vanished. I wonder what happened to it. I found the pipe but was surprised to see that there was no valve. The wheel was gone. “Where did it go?” I looked back and saw another staircase leading down. It led to a huge tunnel, similar to a sewer. Ink flowed in a steady stream. On the wall was more writing. “DOWN HERE WE’RE ALL SINNERS”. I wasn’t sure I was a fan of all the religious messages. I’ve never really been a religious person, hence why I used devils and angels in my cartoons. But this was far too literal. Further down the tunnel I saw another creature, but this one was different. He seemed slightly bigger, and was wearing a bowler hat. I also noticed that he had the missing valve. I headed towards him, preparing for a fight, but this thing decided to run. It sunk into the ink and a small stream indicated it was heading further into the sewer. More writing on the walls. Who was doing that?
I eventually found a small work station with sheet music all over the floor and another audio log on the table.
Image of Jack's audio tape
Jack Fain. I had most definitely heard the name before, even seen it on the time stamps, but I didn’t know the guy. He had obviously worked with Sammy on many of the songs. The way he spoke… It gave me the impression of what he had been like. I’ve always had a talent for picturing someone from a voice, and vise versa. I would always be able to visualise a voice actor from how they spoke in a cartoon, even if I had never seen their face before. This helped me pick who I wanted to play the character after hearing the voice demos. That was one of my last jobs before leaving. Joey left that to me, but he supposedly left it for Sammy after I left. I imagined a small well dressed man when I heard Jack’s voice, who liked to avoid others. That behaviour seemed incredibly similar to that thing. But it couldn’t be. That would mean that Jack… Oh my God.
I reached the end of the tunnel and found a small chamber with a crate suspended on a chain. The creature had held itself up in there. I moved towards it, but it sunk into the ink again. I chased it around the room before getting frustrated. This thing just wouldn’t stay still. I then had an idea, seeing a handle attached to the mechanism that held the crate. The thing avoided me, moving under the crate, so I slammed on the handle and with a thud, the crate collapsed on the creature. The hat and valve fell aside. I grabbed the valve and looked at the hat. “Sorry I had to do that. Nice hat though.” Why I said that, I have no idea. I guess that I just felt sorry for the thing. It didn’t try to hurt me and didn’t know I needed the valve. Oh… Jack… How could I have done that to you…
I placed the valve in the pipe in the Infirmary and gave it a turn. The sound of ink spilling onto the office door had stopped. Brilliant. I headed up there and opened the door. There was a desk and a chair in the corner. Music sheets littered the floor, some having been named. “The Devil’s Swing,” “Gospel of Dismay,” “Art of darkness,” and many others. The desk itself was bare, except for a single sheet. There was a blueprint for Joey’s machine. I stared at it. I had no experience in engineering, but even I knew that something seemed impossible with this thing. On the wall was even more writing. “IT’S TIME TO BELIEVE” and next to that, was the control pump. I gave it a tug and the clanking and drainage sound told me that the staircase was clear. I headed down the corridor and turned the corner before reaching the staircase and, WHAM, something hit me. I stood for a second, before collapsing on my back. Looking up, I saw the dark figure again, holding a blunt object. That bastard had hit me. As I blacked out, I heard him say “Rest your head. It’s time for bed.” and then nothing.
“There we go now. Nice and tight. We wouldn’t want our sheep roaming away now, would we?” I hadn’t dreamed that time, but I really wished I had. I was restrained, tied to a support beam in a large room. Candles lit the place up, and I got a proper look at my advisory.
“No. we wouldn’t.”
He was a tall man. Taller than me and spindly as well. His skin was black with ink. He was fully coated in the stuff. It dripped off of him. It was hard to know if this was actually his skin or just a coating of the stuff. He wore stained white dungarees, and a mask covered his face. A wooden Bendy mask, with ink splotches all over it. It had a hole in the teeth where his mouth was seen, only it couldn’t be seen. It was like his head was just blank, but I couldn’t tell.
“I must admit I am honoured you came all the way down here to visit me. It almost makes what I’m about to do seem cruel.”
At that he raised my axe, polishing the blade slightly, pausing while looking at it. I was about to speak, but nothing came out. I was frozen with fear. For I knew who this man was, or once had been. It was the same voice I’d heard in the tapes, and the same figure I’d seen in the hallway and in the projectors booth.
It was Sammy.
“But the believers must honour the savoir. I must have him notice me.”
At this, he walked to another beam and propped the axe up against it. Savior? Did he mean Bendy?
“Wait,” He said, getting closer to me, his face inches from mine. “You look familiar to me… That face…”
I intended to talk then. To see if I could reason with him. There was obviously a part of his old self left. I just had to reach it. But before I could get anything else out, he cut me off.
“Not now. For our lord is calling to us, my little sheep. The time of sacrifice is at hand.”
He took a step back and began moving across the space in front of me, almost preaching.
“And then, I will finally be freed from this… prison. This inky… dark… abyss I call a body.”
A thud was heard in the distance.
“Shhhhh… Quiet! Listen!”
More thuds, coming closer.
“I can hear him. Crawling above. Crawling!”
Even more thuds. I began to feel afraid, and Sammy noticed this.
“Let us begin. The ritual must be completed! Soon he will hear me…”
He got in close again. I smelled his breath, reeking of that bacon soup stuff. There must have been nothing else to eat. How long had he been here?
“He will set us free.”
With that he left me, going off to a side door to my left. His footsteps echoed loudly in the chamber. A speaker screeched into life, and he began to chant.
“Sheep, sheep, sheep. It’s time for sleep
Rest your head. It’s time for bed
In the morning, you will wake
Or in the morning, you’ll be dead.”
A shutter door opposite me began to slowly rise. I began struggling. There was no way I was just gonna sit here while that demon entered this room. If I was to die, I was gonna go fighting.
“Hear me Bendy! Arise from the darkness! Arise and claim my offering! Free me! I beg you!”
The door was now open, but nothing was there.
“I summon you, Ink Demon! Show your face and take this tender sheep!”
With that there was a loud crash and a roar, but it was heard on the microphone, and not in the chamber
“No! My lord! Stay back! I am your prophet! I am your-” But he never finished his sentence.
A scream came over the speakers, as Bendy must have attacked Sammy, choosing to take him instead of me. With a final few strained movements, I was able to break the binds holding me. I dashed to the axe, the ground shaking, as Bendy must have been finishing Sammy off. Ink began to drip heavily, creatures forming from the puddles that they left. I cut through them and ran through the open door. Thinking hard, I remembered seeing a glimpse of a large object being lowered through a gap in the wall next to me. I didn’t think about it till later, but I realised it was the machine, and it was sinking through the studio. I moved through the hall, cutting through beams to clear the path. There was one more ahead. I raised it and brought it down hard. The wood snapped into splinters, but the axe broke in half, the head denting and detaching from the shaft. There were still more creatures behind me, so I dropped the broken axe and headed forward, seeing a flooded room. I was prepared to start wading until he appeared.
The ink writhed and whirled into a tall mass. A shape coalesced from the ink, forming into the hauntingly familiar shape of the creature that had chased me into this damn pit. Bendy stood before me. He roared, rearing his head back and creating a cacophony of screams. He turned his sightless eyes on me and started a running limp towards me and I ran. I didn’t think about where I was going, but I just kept going. Every fibre of my being screamed at me to get the hell away from him. I made many twists and turns, sneaking a peak back every now and then. Despite his limp Bendy was a god runner, and he was rapidly gaining on me. Ink seemed to spread from him, the walls and floor being covered in tendrils of ink, all flowing towards me. I saw a door ahead of me and sprinted towards it. I bolted through and slammed it shut behind me, leaning against it with all my weight. The door banged loudly as Bendy beat against it with his hands, his right hand shrivelled, making a quieter beat compared to his giant left hand, which thundered against the door. I looked around for anything that could help before noticing a bar and brackets that could be used to barricade the door. I slotted it into place and stepped backwards. There were a few more knocks until, with a growl, Bendy left the door. He had lost interest. OK. So he couldn’t just pass through solid objects all the time. That was comforting. That or he could get in at any time he liked but just chose not to. That was less comforting. I instead decided to focus on the fact that he wasn’t there and was no longer after me for the moment.
I looked around and found that I was in some sort of storeroom. There were cans lining a few shelves and a couple of pipes along the walls. At this point however it would have been more surprising to see a room without pipes. A door lay open and I headed towards it. There were a couple of barrels and one or two ink stains on the floor, but apart from that, it appeared to be the cleanest parts of the studio, almost like someone had been living there. A can rolled out from around a corner and across the floor. Someone was there. I had nowhere to run and nothing to defend myself, so I took the next logical step. I finally spoke up.
“Hello? Someone there?”
No answer. I tried again. More firmly this time.
“I know you’re in here. Come out and show yourself.”
Steady footsteps were heard and I prepared for the worst. The figure emerged and my jaw dropped. How was this possible? He was dead. I saw his body on the top floor. Even then, he was just a cartoon character. Everything else was a corrupted employee or a mindless beast, but something was different about him. He stepped into the light, and smiled at me, his big toothy grin making me feel better. It gave me hope, but at the same time, made me slightly uneasy as the sheer absurdity of him being here was almost too much.
“Boris?”
End of Chapter Two
So there you have it. This one took me a hell of a lot longer than the first one, because the chapter is longer. I will probably get around to chapter three soon and don't worry, I won't go through all of the pedantic tasks. I'll probably mention them but keep them brief. I'll leave a link to chapter one at the bottom of the post and add a link to chapter three once I've written it.

2020.04.14 23:28 ConnaughtonByNature My Friend And I Miss Sports Too Much

We all miss sports. March and April have been tough for the fans. Usually we’d have March Madness, the NBA, the NHL, and the MLB starting up. Instead we’ve had to tide ourselves over with replays of classic games, NBA2K tournaments hosted by the man with the least charisma (if you don’t know who I’m talking about, consider yourself lucky), and most recently, a televised horse competition with the video quality of a flip phone.
Lucky for you, u/senddeaththreats, and I are here for you. Over the past few weeks, we’ve been crafting our own version of March Madness. But instead of using NCAA teams, we’ve used what we refer to as “Guys.” Now you’re probably asking yourself what is a Guy? A Guy can be many things. A Guy is someone who has a particular body of work that interests us. Often, the work that the Guy puts out is frankly, terrible. We cherish the Adam Sandlers, the Eddie Murphys, the Martin Lawrences. Generally speaking, Guys have a certain kind of staying power . Sure, new Guys have come up, but for the most part, the top Guys have been Guys for a long time.
The first thing we had to do in order to pull off our “Guys Madness” was determine the Guys who would make the tournament. To do this, we created a list of any Guy we thought could be a contender. Our initial list ran 130 deep. From there, we had to narrow it down to 68 because of course we had to account for the play-in games. (NOTE: we realized a little late that we were doing the math wrong and had to bump it up to 70 after the first vote) The process of narrowing it down involved a long debate about each Guy’s merits until we had a list we could both be happy with.
Then it came time for the seedings. To do this, we each took the list of Guys and ranked them separately. The top Guy would get the most points.
Final Guys Rankings
So for me, Will Smith got 68 points (again, we fucked up). The last Guy got 1 point. For me, this was Josh Hartnett. We then took our two scores and averaged them to get the Guy’s score. Then we divided them up into seeds based on their score. If there was a tie, we had a frank discussion and laid out pros and cons of each Guy to break the tie and determine seeding.
In order to build the bracket, we used the final bracketology uploaded to ESPN from Joe Lunardi for March Madness 2020, linked below:
Joe Lunardi's Bracketology Bracket
FanSided wrote an article in which they used the same method and then they “played” out the tournament based on how they thought the matches would go. We matched up our Guys with the seeding from the bracketology, so that our Guys would represent the teams that would have appeared in this year’s tournament. And more importantly, their performance in the tournament mirrored FanSided’s predictions for “their” teams.
Guys Seeding/Team Equivalent
Let’s break down our four number one seeds and their Guy status.
MIDWEST REGION:
Our first 1 seed and our top overall seed of the tournament is Will Smith (representing the Kansas Jayhawks). Will Smith has been our top Guy for over 15 years. He’s got longevity which made him an obvious choice for the top overall seed. What makes Will Smith a Guy? Let’s get into it. Ten years ago, Will Smith was the most powerful man in Hollywood. Nearly every movie he released in a 15 year span grossed over $100 million at the box office. One of these films is Wild Wild West, which he chose to star in over The Matrix. Wild Wild West lost a ton of money at the box office, featured Kevin Kline in dual roles (one of them being president Ulysses S. Grant), Kenneth Branagh playing the hammed up villain Dr. Loveless, and of course gave us the classic theme song featuring Dru Hill. Big Will is a clear cut 1 seed because of his filmography as well as his discography. We all know his hit songs like “Gettin Jiggy Wit It,” but did you know that in 2005 he released an album titled “Lost and Found” that featured a song using the Spider-Man theme, as well as a diss track that instead of attacking Eminem, chose to focus on how nice of a guy Big Will is himself? It contains classic lines such as “Will’s a nice guy, he’s so nice I’d let him date my daughter like he was a white guy.”
EAST REGION:
Our next 1 seed was Nicolas Cage (representing the Dayton Flyers). Does Nic Cage really need an introduction? The man is batshit crazy. He owns a dinosaur skull. He dresses like a villain in a film you can only find on the Syfy channel. He’s acted in 29 direct-to-dvd films in just the 2010s alone. He was an obvious choice.
WEST REGION:
Our next 1 seed was Tommy Wiseau (representing the Gonzaga Bulldogs). If you haven’t seen The Room, what are you doing with your life? Tommy Wiseau is the writer, director, executive producer, and star of The Room. He spent 6 million dollars to make this film yet it looks like it was made for less than $200,000. Where did he get the money? We have no idea definitively, but he claims it’s from importing leather jackets from Korea. The Room is often referred to as the “Citizen Kane” of bad movies. If you take away one thing from this post, please let it be to watch this movie for the first time. Your life will be forever changed.
SOUTH REGION:
Our final 1 seed was Adam Sandler (representing the Baylor Bears). Sandler’s body of work speaks for itself. The man makes movies based on where he wants to vacation. He hasn’t made a good comedy in probably 20 years. Does this take away from his classics like Happy Gilmore and The Wedding Singer? Of course not. But there’s just no way you can have a tournament of Guys and not have Sandler at the top.
THE FULL BRACKET
After all the planning and data, this is where things got exciting, but also sad. Our Guys were at the whims of FanSided’s projections, and there was nothing we could do to alter the outcome. Of course, our Guys Madness would have been way more exciting had March Madness actually taken place. Chance would’ve played a bigger part in the tournament. We all remember Loyola, George Mason, and Florida Gulf Coast. What if these teams were represented by Guys like Jackie Chan, Joey Fatone, and Jamie Kennedy (two 11 seeds and a 15 seed, respectively)? This isn’t to say there weren’t still some good upsets. Among the notable first round upsets, we had:
- 12 Tom Green defeated 5 Mark Wahlberg
- 12 Justin Long defeated 5 Ashton Kutcher
- 11 Tim Wilson from The Circle UK defeated 6 Rob Schneider
- 11 Jackie Chan defeated 6 Sean William Scott
But none were as big as 14 seeded Jared Leto defeating 3 seeded Brendan Fraser. And to follow it up, Leto took it a step further and defeated 11 seeded Jackie Chan to make the Sweet Sixteen as a 14 seed. We should mention that we both hate Jared Leto strongly but felt his place in the tournament was deserved.
Other than Jared Leto, the round of 32 only had one major upset and that was 10 seeded Owen Wilson knocking out 2 seed Bruce Willis.
Round of 32 Results
ON TO THE SWEET SIXTEEN!
Sweet Sixteen Results
The top seeds fared well except for one, as 6 seed Keanu Reeves took down 2 seed Mike Myers. This was fresh off Keanu knocking out 3 seed John Travolta in the round of 32. Keanu kept the momentum going and looked to be a strong contender.
THE ELITE EIGHT
Elite Eight Results
The elite 8 is where things really got interesting. We had our first 1 seed fall, as 3 seed Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson took out Tommy Wiseau. And Keanu Reeves followed up his strong showing and knocked out 1 seed Adam Sandler. Also of note is that 1 Will Smith faced off against “Bad Boys” co-star, 2 seed Martin Lawrence. We didn’t even think about this happening when we created the bracket, but what a gift it was.
THE FINAL FOUR
Final Four Results
1 Will Smith vs 1 Nic Cage
3 The Rock vs 6 Keanu Reeves
We couldn’t have asked for more of a contrast. While the two 1 seeds faced off on one side of the bracket, we had surprise contender Keanu and the always dangerous The Rock on the other. We should’ve known Will Smith was doomed from the start since he was playing in place of the Kansas Jayhawks. We know how Bill Self’s teams do in the tournament. And true to form, Big Will was knocked out by Nic Cage. While Keanu made a valiant effort and played a hell of a tournament, The Rock came out on top, setting up a matchup with Nic Cage for all the marbles.
THE CHAMPIONSHIP
Championship Game Results
1 Nic Cage vs 3 The Rock
It’s always less exciting when a 1 seed wins the tournament, and we’re sorry to say that’s exactly what happened here. Nic Cage was crowned the first champion of GUYS MADNESS.
Your 2020 Inaugural Guys Madness Champion
FINAL THOUGHTS
Are we crazy? Probably. Are we bored? Oh absolutely. But most importantly, was this a great use of our time? 100%
In the end, it’s not sports, but it gave us the excitement of a March Madness we had been craving. Now what do we do with all this, you might be asking? Well, there are other ways of simulating out the tournament. And that’s exactly what we did. Even though there hasn’t been a college basketball video game in over a decade, u/senddeaththreats has a PS2 emulator on his computer so we downloaded College Hoops 2K8 and let the games simulate. The results? Well, I guess you’ll have to tune in to the next post. And let me just tease you with this – there were a LOT more upsets.
TL;DR -- we are two bored sports fans and we recreated March Madness using famous people we find amusing. And we call these people GUYS. Thanks for reading!

Author Talk- Kathy Iandoli: God Save the Queens, 3/9

For far too long, women in hip-hop have been relegated to the shadows, viewed as the designated “First Lady” thrown a contract, a pawn in some beef, or even worse. But as Kathy Iandoli makes clear, the reality is very different. Today, hip-hop is dominated by successful women such as Cardi B and Nicki Minaj, yet there are scores of female artists whose influence continues to resonate.
God Save the Queens pays tribute to the women of hip-hop—from the early work of Roxanne Shante, to hitmakers…

Cairo: City of 1000 Minarets, 3/9

Join Iman R. Abdulfattah, PhD Candidate in Islamic Art and Archaeology at Universität Bonn, for a visual journey into the riches of the art and architecture of this important metropolis. When the Fatimid dynasty conquered Egypt in 969 AD, they founded a fortified palatine city to serve as their new administrative center. This new city, named al-Qahira – meaning “The Victorious” – gave the present capital its name. Since the 10th century, Cairo has served as a major center of the Islamicate world and seat of several important dynasties, reaching its apogee under the Mamluks (1250-1516 AD), who gave it an architectural character that symbolized the image of the Islamic city for centuries. These empires also left behind a staggering number of impressive buildings meant to emphasize courtly patronage and dominate the panorama of the city, lending Cairo the nickname of the City of 1,000 Minarets. Today, more than 400 extant registered historic Islamic monuments survive tucked away amid the modern urban sprawl, many of which remain largely overshadowed by their more ancient counterparts.

Why the Far Right Kills, 3/10

Why is this political faction, compared to others, so violent -- and what drives them to kill again and again? Researcher Chip Berlet, who has investigated the Far Right for forty years, will explain how the movement’s internal dynamic drives its participants into homicidal outbursts. Berlet will discuss the Far Right’s themes of demonization, scapegoating, conspiracism, and apocalypticism with journalist Talia Lavin, and they will offer their perspectives on how to deal with this toxic social current.

Arsenal Gallery Exhibition Opening: Alice Momm: The Gleaner's Song, 3/12

Join NYC Parks for the opening reception for our new exhibition Alice Momm: The Gleaner's Song in the Arsenal Gallery. The Gleaner’s Song is a collection of mixed-media works, words, and photographs by artist Alice Momm, inspired by her daily, immersive walks in Central Park. The materials and impressions gathered on these rambles become the seeds of artworks that pay tribute to the ragged beauty of found objects in nature and honor the quiet dramas unfolding in unexpected places. While often humorous, the artworks reflect a deep concern for our environment and an appreciation of the interconnectedness of all living beings. This solo exhibition is Momm's love song to Central Park and an invitation to find wonder and joy in New York City’s parks. This event is FREE and open to the public. The exhibition is on display in the Arsenal Gallery on weekdays from March 13, 2020 through June 4, 2020. Please note that the Arsenal Gallery will be closed on Monday, May 25, 2020.

Two Elizas in Old New York (1875): Eliza Greatorex Picturing Eliza Jumel’s Mansion With Professor Katherine Manthorne, 3/12

Join as Professor Katherine Manthorne explores the interconnected lives of two influential women from 19th Century New York, Eliza Jumel and Eliza Pratt Greatorex. Eliza Jumel, a self-made woman who used her intellect to become one of the richest women in New York, was Morris-Jumel Mansion’s longest living resident. Four years after Jumel’s death, Eliza Pratt Greatorex was one of America’s most famous women artists and only female member of the National Academy of Design. Professor Manthorne’s illustrated presentation focuses on Pratt Greatorex’s folio volume Old New York: From the Battery to Bloomingdale (1875) in which the artist depicted the city’s threatened architectural landmarks during the post-Civil War building boom, including Morris-Jumel Mansion and its grounds. Enjoy this special preview of Manthorne’s forthcoming book, Restless Enterprise: The Art and Life of Eliza Pratt Greatorex, which will be published in January 2021. Katherine Manthorne is a Professor of Art History at the Graduate Center, City University of New York, and a specialist in American art and culture with attention to the contribution of women. Soon to be published by the University of California Press in Jan. 2021, her book, Restless Enterprise: The Art and Life of Eliza Pratt Greatorex, brings back to life this feisty, remarkable figure and her extensive network of art women to shed light on the still-misunderstood visual culture of the post-Civil War years.

Everyday Ecologies, 3/14

Everyday Ecologies is a full-day conference held on Saturday, March 14 at the Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture. Experts across the fields of design, urban ecology, and social science will be speaking to how we support and exist within ecosystems, and how we can investigate new approaches in the world of urban ecological systems. To instigate new approaches, we have invited designers, planners, historians, and social scientists to talk about everyday ecosystems: the boundless communities we are part of—a cocktail of cultures crossing economic and class strata with overlapping gender, racial, and spiritual identities—that complement but also compete with each other and conflict internally for rights and means to perpetuate their cultural identities, social relations, and environmental resource needs and desires. Speakers will present the idea or theory that one of their projects is contested through design, planning, or projective research and analysis. Together, we aim to develop principles that will establish a foothold from which to launch new approaches and ideas for changing the complex world future generations will inherit. Featuring: Thaisa Way, Tim Maly, Kate Orff, Heather McMillen, Elizabeth Hénaff, Lindsay Campbell, Kristina Hill, Justin Garrett Moore, Andrew Bauer, Liz Barry, Andrea Parker, Sean Weiss, Julia Czerniak, Maria Villalobos, Sierra Bainbridge, Joy Bailey Bryant, Erika Svendsen, Denise Hoffman Brandt FREE with RSVP.

Author Talk- Kathy Iandoli: God Save the Queens, 3/9

For far too long, women in hip-hop have been relegated to the shadows, viewed as the designated “First Lady” thrown a contract, a pawn in some beef, or even worse. But as Kathy Iandoli makes clear, the reality is very different. Today, hip-hop is dominated by successful women such as Cardi B and Nicki Minaj, yet there are scores of female artists whose influence continues to resonate.
God Save the Queens pays tribute to the women of hip-hop—from the early work of Roxanne Shante, to hitmakers…

Cairo: City of 1000 Minarets, 3/9

Join Iman R. Abdulfattah, PhD Candidate in Islamic Art and Archaeology at Universität Bonn, for a visual journey into the riches of the art and architecture of this important metropolis. When the Fatimid dynasty conquered Egypt in 969 AD, they founded a fortified palatine city to serve as their new administrative center. This new city, named al-Qahira – meaning “The Victorious” – gave the present capital its name. Since the 10th century, Cairo has served as a major center of the Islamicate world and seat of several important dynasties, reaching its apogee under the Mamluks (1250-1516 AD), who gave it an architectural character that symbolized the image of the Islamic city for centuries. These empires also left behind a staggering number of impressive buildings meant to emphasize courtly patronage and dominate the panorama of the city, lending Cairo the nickname of the City of 1,000 Minarets. Today, more than 400 extant registered historic Islamic monuments survive tucked away amid the modern urban sprawl, many of which remain largely overshadowed by their more ancient counterparts.

Why the Far Right Kills, 3/10

Why is this political faction, compared to others, so violent -- and what drives them to kill again and again? Researcher Chip Berlet, who has investigated the Far Right for forty years, will explain how the movement’s internal dynamic drives its participants into homicidal outbursts. Berlet will discuss the Far Right’s themes of demonization, scapegoating, conspiracism, and apocalypticism with journalist Talia Lavin, and they will offer their perspectives on how to deal with this toxic social current.

Arsenal Gallery Exhibition Opening: Alice Momm: The Gleaner's Song, 3/12

Join NYC Parks for the opening reception for our new exhibition Alice Momm: The Gleaner's Song in the Arsenal Gallery. The Gleaner’s Song is a collection of mixed-media works, words, and photographs by artist Alice Momm, inspired by her daily, immersive walks in Central Park. The materials and impressions gathered on these rambles become the seeds of artworks that pay tribute to the ragged beauty of found objects in nature and honor the quiet dramas unfolding in unexpected places. While often humorous, the artworks reflect a deep concern for our environment and an appreciation of the interconnectedness of all living beings. This solo exhibition is Momm's love song to Central Park and an invitation to find wonder and joy in New York City’s parks. This event is FREE and open to the public. The exhibition is on display in the Arsenal Gallery on weekdays from March 13, 2020 through June 4, 2020. Please note that the Arsenal Gallery will be closed on Monday, May 25, 2020.

Two Elizas in Old New York (1875): Eliza Greatorex Picturing Eliza Jumel’s Mansion With Professor Katherine Manthorne, 3/12

Join as Professor Katherine Manthorne explores the interconnected lives of two influential women from 19th Century New York, Eliza Jumel and Eliza Pratt Greatorex. Eliza Jumel, a self-made woman who used her intellect to become one of the richest women in New York, was Morris-Jumel Mansion’s longest living resident. Four years after Jumel’s death, Eliza Pratt Greatorex was one of America’s most famous women artists and only female member of the National Academy of Design. Professor Manthorne’s illustrated presentation focuses on Pratt Greatorex’s folio volume Old New York: From the Battery to Bloomingdale (1875) in which the artist depicted the city’s threatened architectural landmarks during the post-Civil War building boom, including Morris-Jumel Mansion and its grounds. Enjoy this special preview of Manthorne’s forthcoming book, Restless Enterprise: The Art and Life of Eliza Pratt Greatorex, which will be published in January 2021. Katherine Manthorne is a Professor of Art History at the Graduate Center, City University of New York, and a specialist in American art and culture with attention to the contribution of women. Soon to be published by the University of California Press in Jan. 2021, her book, Restless Enterprise: The Art and Life of Eliza Pratt Greatorex, brings back to life this feisty, remarkable figure and her extensive network of art women to shed light on the still-misunderstood visual culture of the post-Civil War years.

Everyday Ecologies, 3/14

Everyday Ecologies is a full-day conference held on Saturday, March 14 at the Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture. Experts across the fields of design, urban ecology, and social science will be speaking to how we support and exist within ecosystems, and how we can investigate new approaches in the world of urban ecological systems. To instigate new approaches, we have invited designers, planners, historians, and social scientists to talk about everyday ecosystems: the boundless communities we are part of—a cocktail of cultures crossing economic and class strata with overlapping gender, racial, and spiritual identities—that complement but also compete with each other and conflict internally for rights and means to perpetuate their cultural identities, social relations, and environmental resource needs and desires. Speakers will present the idea or theory that one of their projects is contested through design, planning, or projective research and analysis. Together, we aim to develop principles that will establish a foothold from which to launch new approaches and ideas for changing the complex world future generations will inherit. Featuring: Thaisa Way, Tim Maly, Kate Orff, Heather McMillen, Elizabeth Hénaff, Lindsay Campbell, Kristina Hill, Justin Garrett Moore, Andrew Bauer, Liz Barry, Andrea Parker, Sean Weiss, Julia Czerniak, Maria Villalobos, Sierra Bainbridge, Joy Bailey Bryant, Erika Svendsen, Denise Hoffman Brandt FREE with RSVP.

The Science of Vaccines, 3/11

In the last 70 years or so, vaccines have saved millions of lives. They are among the most effective, safest, and cheap medicines ever discovered by humankind. Still, questions about vaccines resonate across our communities and in the media. Do vaccines cause autism? Are they harmful? What about their ingredients? Is vaccination a personal choice? In this talk, Francesco presents the basic facts about vaccines, and he will discuss these and many other questions. Communities need vaccines, and vaccines need communities.

2019.07.30 02:28 Vegerot List of Joe Rogan Experience Guests by appearances (from /r/joerogan)

Hey, guys. First time posting here. I was watching an episode of the JRE recently and wondered who was the most frequent guest on the show. Joey Diaz? Tom Segura? Eddie Bravo? I tried looking it up and found this post a few years ago by jsfly, but couldn't find anything recently. Additionally, I wasn't sure how he came across his information, but it appeared to be a very laborious process.
So, instead of spending an hour tallying each guest from #1325 to #1, I spent four hours writing a code that will do it for me. This has the advantage of (once I wrote it) being much faster, and the fact that this can be run at any point in the future, so there can always be an up-to-date list of podcast guests.
Without any further ado, from over 700 guests across almost 1400 podcasts, here are the most frequent guests on the Joe Rogan Experience: ​

2019.07.30 02:02 Vegerot Most Frequent Guests on JRE

Hey, guys. First time posting here. I was watching an episode of the JRE recently and wondered who was the most frequent guest on the show. Joey Diaz? Tom Segura? Eddie Bravo? I tried looking it up and found this post a few years ago by jsfly, but couldn't find anything recently. Additionally, I wasn't sure how he came across his information, but it appeared to be a very laborious process.
So, instead of spending an hour tallying each guest from #1325 to #1, I spent four hours writing a code that will do it for me. This has the advantage of (once I wrote it) being much faster, and the fact that this can be run at any point in the future, so there can always be an up-to-date list of podcast guests.
Without any further ado, from over 700 guests across almost 1400 podcasts, here are the most frequent guests on the Joe Rogan Experience: ​

Edit: I was thinking while writing this code if Jordan Peterson's conjecture that in any creative work "The square root of the number of people have 50% of the results" applies to JRE guests. So I calculated it and found that, in fact, the top square root percent of guests have almost 40% of all the appearances.
That's really cool! That even though Joe has had hundreds of guests, just a few make up almost half the people on the show. Very interesting

2019.07.24 01:11 JDoubleU0509 Immaculate Inning Research

Updated to include Kevin Gausman on August 18th, 2019, Chris Martin on September 11,2019, and Will Harris On September 26, 2019.
I went through every immaculate inning in MLB history to do some research on if having an immaculate inning was related to having a good game. I found each pitchers’ stats in the game they had an immaculate inning. Then did calculations to find the total WHIP and ERA of all the games combined. I also included how many times each team has thrown an immaculate inning. There is a list of pitchers that have thrown more than one immaculate inning in their career. If I’m missing anything or did something wrong, then let me know and I’ll try to add it. So, now for an excessive amount of knowledge you never needed to know.
100 total immaculate innings in MLB history: - 37 immaculate innings since 2010 - 14 from 2000-2009 - 18 in the 1990s - 4 in the 1980s - 8 in the 1970s - 8 in the 1960s - 11 before 1960

Wins, Losses, Saves, Holds

Combined Totals (by decade available in Full Stats)

WHIP, ERA, K/9

K/9 is likely inflated because of the circumstances of an immaculate inning. - All-time averages: 1.36 WHIP, 3.85 ERA, 5.05 K/9

2019.06.13 03:12 claball First time First-Team All-Pro picks for 2019

If that title had you confused don’t be embarrassed. A couple duplicate words, a little alliteration and some hyphens will do that to a person.

Basically this is an All-Pro prediction team that consists solely of players who have never been given First-Team honors.

In 2018, 12 of the 23 players named All-Pro on offense and defense were first-timers.

They include: Patrick Mahomes, Michael Thomas, David Bakhtiari, Mitchell Schwartz, Quenton Nelson, Fletcher Cox, Darius Leonard, Kyle Fuller, Stephon Gilmore, Eddie Jackson, Derwin James and Desmond King.

The opportunity for any player to assert himself as one of the best in the league is what makes the NFL so exciting. Patrick Mahomes had a top three season ever by a quarterback in just his first year as a starter. Stories like that drive the NFL.

There will always be the mainstays like Aaron Donald, J.J. Watt, Luke Kuechly and Bobby Wagner. But parity is alive and well in the NFL and this "All-Star" team is proof of that. Any player or team has the chance to be the best. It’s likely some of the guys listed below will in fact make First-Team in 2019.

So, here are some of the names to watch who could be making an inaugural appearance as a First-Team All-Pro member in 2019:


Offense

Quarterback

Andrew Luck
Other Considerations: Russell Wilson, Philip Rivers

There are some pretty prestigious quarterbacks who have never been named First-Team All-Pro. Luck, Wilson and Rivers are the biggest of those names and are all serious contenders for this award in 2019.

Rivers and Wilson have both been in the conversation at one point or another in their career. My pick, however, is Indianapolis’ Andrew Luck.

He’s remarkably coming off his best season in the NFL after major shoulder issues. Luck threw 39 touchdown passes which would often be enough to lead the league. His 67.3% completion is a career high. He also won his first playoff game since 2014. But most importantly… HE HADN’T PLAYED AN NFL GAME IN 19 MONTHS. You can’t stress enough how great Luck’s 2018 season was amidst all the doubt. Leading up to the 2018 season there was significant uncertainty that Luck would ever look like himself again. At 28 years old his best football might have been behind him.

Luck thought differently. Week one of 2018 he came out and completed 39 passes (73.6% completion), threw for 319 yards at six yards per attempt and connected on two touchdowns.

This is why I believe Luck is in a great position for this honor in 2019. His ability is back and the supporting cast is better. A suddenly phenomenal offensive line, a nasty tight end duo and one of the best deep threats in football not to mention a feisty defense make up the current Colts.

With his high statistical ceiling, it won’t take luck for Luck to make a hard push for First-Team All-Pro this season.

Running Back

Alvin Kamara
Other Considerations: Christian McCaffrey, Saquon Barkley, David Johnson

This is the one I feel least passionate about. There are so many good young running backs in the league right now who haven’t really had the opportunity at First-Team All-Pro with Todd Gurley’s recent reign. But, with Gurley’s worrisome knee concerns, this spot appears up for grabs in 2019.

I ultimately landed on Alvin Kamara as this squad’s back. He’s been among the most efficient offensive players with his limited touches in the past two seasons. He hasn’t eclipsed 200 carries in a season yet has an impressive 22 rushing touchdowns in his short career. Kamara has averaged 15.5 total touchdowns in each season and is a threat to score from anywhere on the field. On the receiving end, he has the second most receptions from a running back in the last two seasons with 162, just behind McCaffrey’s 187. He’s also never had any major injury problems. His only missed game was due to a concussion from a nasty hit by Jaylon Smith last year.

The most prominent reason for Alvin Kamara being the pick here though, is the departure of Mark Ingram. Sure, the Saints brought in Latavius Murray. But, he won’t be getting anything close to the 184 carries Ingram has averaged since Kamara was drafted.

So, in a nutshell, this is why Kamara is primed for a massive increase in production: He averaged 152 yards from scrimmage, 8 receptions and 1.5 touchdowns in the four games Ingram was suspended in 2018.

That production expanded to a 16-game season is 2,432 yards from scrimmage, 128 receptions and 24 touchdowns. Obviously those numbers are inflated and likely aren’t attainable. But, this is what a backfield where Kamara is the featured back could look like.

New Orleans has a Hall of Fame quarterback still playing like it and an offensive line that’s among the league’s elite. There’s no reason Alvin Kamara can’t be the NFL’s best running back in 2019.

Flex

Christian McCaffrey

The “Flex” position goes to my second choice at running back. The designation also fits McCaffrey perfectly. He’s the best receiver at the running back position in the league. He’s also the most utilized running back in the NFL. McCaffrey played an absurd 91.30% of snaps in 2018. That’s the most of any running back in the NFL and 8% more than the next highest back (Barkley). He’s a featured back if there ever was one. Take that draft analysts.

McCaffrey also proved he isn’t just a receiver in a running back’s body in 2018. His 5 yards per carry average bested his 2017 mark by 1.3 yards. He did that on 102 more carries too. His best single game rushing performance came in week three where he carried the ball 28 time for 184 yards. That was the first major sign that McCaffrey could handle a bell-cow type workload.

The Panthers will always heavily utilize McCaffrey in a receiving role. His 2018 season showed he could be counted on just as much as a runner. Thanks to that dual-threat ability he came just 35 yards short of 2,000 total yards from scrimmage in 2018. That mark is certainly within reach this season. If McCaffrey accomplishes that, he’ll be in a strong position to make this team.

Wide Receiver

Davante Adams, Odell Beckham Jr.
Other Considerations: Mike Evans, Keenan Allen, A.J. Green

There are so many good second-tier receivers (guys not named Antonio, Julio or DeAndre) that this position has plenty of options. I narrowed the short-list down to five players. Evans, Allen and Green just missed the cut, but it wouldn’t be a surprise to anyone if their names showed up on this team come January.

My top pick here is Davante Adams. I see Davante as this year’s Michael Thomas. A special receiver in his own right who will be elevated to new heights thanks to his quarterback and offense. Sure, Adams had Rodgers last year too, but some flux in the head coaching department led to a little offensive uncertainty midseason.

That won’t be a hurdle in 2019. New coach and offensive mind Matt LaFleur is now directing Rodgers and Co. LaFleur is one of the many coaches to emerge from Sean McVay’s coaching tree already. That connection alone can get some excited. A shake-up on offense could be just what the Packers need to reach the potential Rodgers is capable of.

Being the absolutely unquestioned number one receiver in Green Bay (along with Rodgers throwing the ball) is Adams’ biggest asset. They lost Randall Cobb in the offseason and their current number two wideout is Geronimo Allison… or Marquez Valdes-Scantling… or Equanimeous St. Brown. I don’t know, pick one. Either way it’s no one who will take targets away from Adams.

The sixth year wideout showed in 2018 that he can be the top receiver for the Packers. Jordy Nelson’s departure opened a door and Adams ran through it. 111 receptions, 1,386 yards and 13 touchdowns later, Adams has removed any doubt that he can handle this responsibility. At 26, he’s directly in his prime. This could be Davante Adam’s year.

The second selection here is a player who, based purely on raw talent, belongs in the top tier of NFL receivers. If Odell Beckham Jr. had continued his trajectory from his first three seasons (basically by not catching the injury bug) he’d be a unanimous elite. Some might still put him up there, but being available is absolutely a trait that comes into consideration when judging players.

Now he’s in Cleveland and hopefully left the injuries in New York. Beckham has an upgrade at quarterback, an upgrade at offensive line and an upgrade at surrounding receiving talent (Landry, Njoku > Shepard, Engram. Barely). Plus an offense with a lot more swagger that he can feel at home in. Attitude is a big part of Beckham being successful. The feeling surrounding Cleveland right now is electric.

It just felt like Beckham needed to restart. Reuniting with former LSU teammate Jarvis Landry is an awesome story. That was one of the cooler relationships in the NFL before they joined forces in Ohio. Now, they’ll be shredding defenses side-by-side like they did in college.

Having Baker Mayfield tossing the pigskin definitely doesn’t hurt either. His incredible accuracy and gunslinger mentality makes him a great pairing for Beckham. He quietly threw for the most touchdowns ever by a rookie quarterback in 2018. Mayfield is the real deal. There won’t be 10 dump-offs a game like in New York, and instead those targets will be bombed downfield to a wide-open Beckham.

OBJ is big reason why the Browns are so hyped this year. Beckham will finally be playing for something with a team that can match his intensity. It feels like the perfect fit.

Tight End

George Kittle
Other Considerations: Zach Ertz, O.J. Howard

Probably the easiest decision on this team. I had to double check to make sure Kittle didn’t actually make 2018 First-Team All-Pro. He didn’t, but honestly it could have been a coin flip between he and Travis Kelce. Frankly, if so much wasn’t dependent on the stat sheet, Kittle’s impact as a blocker could have made up for the five less touchdowns he scored. I mean the guy broke the single-season record for receiving yards by a tight end and can block you as effectively as a disgruntled celebrity on twitter. That’s not a combination you see every day.

Just so I cover all the bases, why Kittle over Ertz if stats are so important? It has to do with what Kittle had to deal with that Ertz didn’t in 2018. Quarterback instability. George Kittle played with three quarterbacks in 2018. That includes 2.5 games from Garoppolo, 5.5 games from C.J. Beathard and 8 games from Nick Mullens. That’s a lot of chemistry that isn’t being built with your quarterback. It shouldn’t be a problem again if the best of that group is able to play a 16-game season for the first time in his career.

Another note is that Zach Ertz has some legitimate “competition” from teammate Dallas Goedert. Ertz is clearly the number one, but Goedert stole a fair amount of production from Ertz in 2018. Kittle will only be vying with Garrett Celek who had five catches for 90 yards and two scores in all of 2018.

This spot is realistically between two players: Kelce vs. Kittle. Well-established superstar vs. emerging talent. George Kittle might be the favorite for First-Team in 2019.

Left Tackle

Terron Armstead
Other Considerations: Trent Williams, Jake Matthews, Russell Okung, Alejandro Villanueva

There are never enough left tackles to go around in the NFL. However, there is a really solid crop of players who’ve failed to appear on the All-Pro First Team. Some are fairly new to the NFL scene while others are savvy vets who have just barely missed the cut at times in their career.

The best of this group is Saints’ left tackle Terron Armstead.

The NFL is a passing league, but offensive linemen still need to be able to run-block. Armstead excels in both. Unfortunately for him, it’s what he can’t control that’s kept him from really sprouting in the league. Health.

It’s a shame when a player as good as Terron Armstead gets blasted with injuries. He’s never completed a 16-game season in his six-year New Orleans career. Armstead has only been able to play in 27 of 48 possible contests since his 2015 breakout season. The Saints offense is a drastically different product with Armstead in. Because they rely on the run so heavily, an offensive tackle who can not only keep Brees’ blind side cl but also clear lanes for Alvin Kamara is infinitely valuable.

New Orleans has some great pieces on their line (see: next position) but Terron Armstead is the biggest presence. He made Second-Team All-Pro in 2018. If he can remain healthy in 2019, he could be looking at a First-Team berth.

Right Tackle

Ryan Ramczyk
Other Considerations: Mike McGlinchey, Trent Brown, Braden Smith

This right tackle group is full of up-and-comers. Brown, McGlinchey and Smith all distinguished themselves as special players in 2018. There is one player though, who’s just a step above.

As far as right tackles go, Ryan Ramczyk was a star on arrival in New Orleans. He acclimated quickly to the NFL scene as a rookie. Ramczyk made every conceivable All-Rookie team assembled by writers in 2017. Then, in 2018, he continued his ascension and was named Second-Team All-Pro.

Landing in New Orleans with Drew Brees in the backfield is a dream scenario for a lineman. Brees knows how to orchestrate an offense and navigate a pocket. Still, a team needs players who can execute a game plan and do their job.

Ramczyk is a mauler in the run game and, like Terron Armstead, can also hold his own against defensive pressure. He actually has potential at left tackle with his athleticism, but the Saints don’t have a need there and put Ramczyk in the best spot to succeed immediately.

The right tackle position on the All-Pro team is a pretty wide open race. Since the team began separating right tackles and left tackles in 2016 no player has repeated on the right side. A rookie made the team in 2016 (Conklin) and in 2018 a previously solid player made it (Schwartz). 2019 could be Ramczyk’s turn.

Left Guard

Joel Bitonio
Other Considerations: Joe Thuney, Ali Marpet

The guard position is the most unknown job on a football roster to the average fan. Most recognize the big names like Marshal Yanda, Zack Martin and Quenton Nelson. But beyond the mainstream characters, it’s a lot of “Joes”. This is what makes offensive line such an interesting position group. It’s such a vital part of an offense but information on it is relatively uncirculated. It’s time to give these guys some cred.

Joel Bitonio has been really good for a couple seasons now. You could have made a very convincing argument about Bitonio making the All-Pro’s First Team in 2018. His consolation? A Second-Team bid. Often what separates a lineman from one team or the other is a little bit more or less publicity. I don’t know anyone who could tell you definitively why Quenton Nelson was better than Bitonio in 2018. That’s what makes judging offensive lineman so hard for the every day fan.

Regardless, Joel Bitonio is among the league’s best left guards. He also finds himself in an odd position of being on a very hyped team that is getting more action this offseason than they’ve had in the previous 10 combined. Vote Joel Bitonio for left guard 2019.

Right Guard

Shaq Mason
Other Considerations: Brandon Scherff

If any position gets less attention than left guard, it’s right guard. Thanks to right handed quarterbacks, the right side of the line often plays the role of the middle child. That being especially true for the guard spot as it is played near the actual middle of the line.

Shaq Mason entered the NFL as a 22 year-old which is incredibly young for an offensive lineman. He’s also the shortest offensive lineman in the NFL coming in at just 6’ 1”. The Patriots' offensive line factory is for real. Not many teams could turn a player this vertically challenged into an elite asset.

Mason has been starting for New England ever since he was drafted in 2015. 2018 was certainly his best season to date. Cowboy’s guard Zack Martin pretty much has had a monopoly on the right guard spot for the All-Pro team. Martin has been named All-Pro in each of the past five years, three First-Teams and two Second-Teams. It’ll be tough to dethrone him. Shaq Mason is the underdog and if there’s anything a Patriot knows well, it’s being doubted… wait that’s not right…

Center

Javon Mack
Other Considerations: David Andrews, Matt Paradis

By utilizing context clues you’ve probably deduced that this is in fact Alex Mack of the Atlanta Falcons. His full name is actually Javon Alexander Mack. Just wanted an opportunity to get that out there. Now, onto less interesting information.

Mack is always the bridesmaid and never the bride. He’s earned three Second-Team All-Pro bids in his 10 year career but never a first. With the additions of two first round offensive linemen to Atlanta’s line, this unit as a whole should see major improvement.

Javon Mack wasn’t his typically dominant self last year. With new starters on either side of Mack in Chris Lindstrom and James Carpenter, he should return to form in 2019.


Defense

EDGE

Joey Bosa, Myles Garrett
Other Considerations: Demarcus Lawrence, Trey Flowers, Danielle Hunter, Frank Clark

Edge rusher is one of the more wide open positions on this team. A high sack total can take you far as we saw with Vic Beasley in the 2016 season. Sacks can be a deceptive statistic when focused on in a vacuum though. Other categories like hits, hurries and pressures can give a more complete picture of the impact an edge rusher makes. However, those numbers aren’t as mainstream and don’t receive the attention they deserve.

There are a plethora of candidates for this spot, but a couple stand out: Joey Bosa and Myles Garrett. They’ve only played a combined five seasons and have both shown consistent signs of utter dominance on the field. The best is yet to come for these young players.

Bosa and Garrett have the highest per game sack average of the pass rushers under consideration here, and by a decent margin. Bosa averages .81 sacks per game and Garrett averages .75 per game.

For Joey Bosa, putting together a full 16-game season in 2019 could be enough to thrust his name into the elite tier of edge rushers. He got off to a hot start in the NFL, recording back-to-back double digit sack seasons before only playing seven games in 2018.

There’s no question about surrounding talent in Los Angeles. Melvin Ingram flying off the edge opposite Bosa as well as first round pick Jerry Tillery on the interior presents a unique challenge for offensive lines. A competent linebacking corps and stifling secondary allows each player to simply focus on doing his job and nothing more. Bosa is a dynamic pass-rusher ready to take over the league.

Myles Garrett’s situation in Cleveland is similar in talent to Bosa’s. But, the former first overall pick might have even moresupport on the defensive line. John Dorsey added Olivier Vernon and Sheldon Richardson in the offseason, both of whom possess quarterback-hunting chops. Cleveland has built a daunting front four.

Myles Garrett tallied 13.5 sacks in 2018 without elite reinforcements. Now he heads into 2019 with a revamped line and all the hype a team could want. The Browns are already riding a wave and Garrett might be able to take that all the way to First-Team All-Pro.

Interior Defensive Linemen

Akiem Hicks, DeForest Buckner
Other Considerations: Chris Jones, Grady Jarrett

Contrary to the parity at the edge rusher position on this team, interior defensive lineman is among the toughest to breakthrough at. That’s in large part because the league is really only fighting for one spot. Aaron Donald resides here 12 months out of the year. He’s made First-Team in each of the past four seasons. During that time no other player has repeated at this spot. The other four appearances are from Fletcher Cox, Cameron Heyward, Damon Harrison and Geno Atkins.

In 2019 there is an abundance of contenders for interior defensive lineman.

Akiem Hicks’ 16 sacks over the past two seasons gives him the flashy stats to get his name out there. He also plays for the league’s best defense at the moment. Hicks is in a phenomenal position for continued success in Chicago. He plays next to a run stuffing tackle in Eddie Goldman and in front of one of the league’s best quarterback killers in Khalil Mack. Akiem Hicks would be the best player on a majority of NFL squads, but falls as the fourth or fifth best in the Windy City which is absolutely bonkers. He could sneak up on people and challenge for a spot on this team.

DeForest Buckner is the other selection here. In 2018 he exploded for 12.5 sacks as the lone threat on the 49ers’ defensive line.

The theme here is surrounding talent and San Francisco doesn’t lack in that department. They’ve continued to load up in the trenches and finally look ready to unleash their crew on the NFL. Having Dee Ford and Nick Bosa at end is going to be legitimately scary for opposing quarterbacks. Buckner is basically a big end playing on the inside. He’s quickly become a uniquely disruptive presence. Buckner has an excellent chance to take his game to the next level with an All-Pro bid.

Linebacker

Deion Jones, Leighton Vander Esch, Benardrick McKinney
Other Considerations: Roquan Smith, Jaylon Smith

When you think linebacker in the NFL there are two names that immediately come to mind: Luke Kuechly and Bobby Wagner. These two superstars have made up 2/3 of the First-Team All-Pro linebacking corps all but two seasons dating back to 2013. They’ve represented the class of this position for a large part of the 2010’s. So, including three new names here is incredibly unlikely to actually happen. But, these are the players fighting for that third spot at linebacker.

Deion Jones is a bit of a forgotten entity after his injury riddled 2018 campaign. But, when looking at coverage linebackers in the NFL, the list of players better than Jones is a blank one. He’s been one of the best new-age linebackers who excel with speed and quickness over size and power. Jones recorded three interceptions in each of his first two seasons and had two already last year in just six games before going down for the season. The fourth-year pro is also a feisty sideline-to-sideline ’backer who gets in on about every tackle. Jones is a flashy playmaker who serves as the glue to Atlanta’s defense. His impact won’t go unnoticed in 2019.

Next up is a new name to the NFL who’s already more well-known than many of his peers. Leighton Vander Esch has a name that sticks with you. His play stood out just as much as a rookie. In fact he was so good for Dallas in his first season, Vander Esch managed to sideline longtime stalwart Sean Lee. Lee has been the key for the Cowboys defense for years. Leighton Vander Esch passing him on the depth chart just a few games into the season is enough to know he’s the real deal. He racked up tackles in 2018 and asserted himself as among the best at his position. It was a loaded 2018 linebacker draft class. Even though Darius Leonard got the All-Pro nod as a rook, Vander Esch wasn’t far behind.

The final spot at linebacker goes to Benardrick McKinney. He’s been putting in work since entering the league through the second round in 2015. It’s easy to be forgotten when you play in a front seven with J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney. McKinney shouldn't stay under-the-radar for long.

Benardrick McKinney has been a steady riser throughout his four seasons as a pro. He was given a 5-year contract worth $50 million in the 2018 offseason. McKinney earns that money as a suffocating run-stuffer. He’s the tallest linebacker in the league and that size shows up on the field. His coverage skills are still developing but he set career highs in broken up passes with seven and interceptions with one last season. If McKinney can make strides in that area this year, he has good prospects of showing up here after the season concludes.

Cornerback

Marlon Humphrey, Marshon Lattimore
Other Considerations: Casey Hayward, Xavien Howard, Tre’Davious White

In the last five years, no cornerback has appeared twice at this position. That’s pretty astounding. That makes 10 different players occupying this spot in five seasons. The trend could continue in 2019. There are plenty of strong contenders for their first appearance this year.

Truly all of the five players I have listed here have a very equal chance at this honor in 2019.

My first choice is the fast rising corner in Baltimore. Marlon Humphrey showed hints of elite ability in his rookie season. That play proved to be no fluke as he officially broke out in 2018 where he became one of the brightest young corners in the game. Now he’ll enter 2019 as the Ravens unquestioned number one cornerback at just 23 years old. The addition of Earl Thomas could do wonders for Humphrey’s ascension to elite status.

The Saints’ Marshon Lattimore is my second pick. He had a phenomenal start to his career as a rookie, easily earning Defensive Rookie of the Year. That’s tough to do at cornerback. He maintained that excellent play for most of 2019. There were a few bumps in the road throughout the season, but he’s still among the NFL’s up-and-comers at corner.

New Orleans’ renovated defense is looking better at every level. Lattimore is a big reason for the upgraded secondary. There’s still plenty of room for improvement in his game. Putting all the pieces together could yield Lattimore a spot on this team.

Safety

Jamal Adams, Malcolm Jenkins
Other Considerations: John Johnson, Keanu Neal

There are a lot of really good safeties in the NFL right now. The top tier includes seven players who have set themselves apart. Earl Thomas, Harrison Smith, Kevin Byard, Eddie Jackson and Derwin James are five who have already accomplished this feat. That leaves Jamal Adams and Malcolm Jenkins as next in line.

Jamal Adams has only played in the NFL for two years, but it’s somehow already surprising that he hasn’t been on this team. He made Second-Team All-Pro in 2018 and is without a doubt in the same tier as last year First-Teamers Derwin James and Eddie Jackson. Adams is the best thumper of the three and can keep up in the coverage department. James and Jackson ended 2018 with 16 and 21 total pass breakups. Jamal Adams posted 13 combined breakups in 2018. His impact as a coverage safety is still developing but clearly isn't a liability.

If the Jets defense was a better unit last year, it very well could have been Adams as one of the safeties instead of James and Jacksonamal Adams will make this team sooner or later in his NFL career.

Similar to Adams, it’s stunning that Malcolm Jenkins has never made this team. Almost more so because Jenkins is entering his 11th season in the league. He hasn’t always been a elite playmaker, but has had a late career renaissance in Philadelphia as one of their most vital defenders.

A lot of what Malcolm Jenkins does on the field doesn’t show up in the stat sheet. Directing the secondary and diagnosing plays are two of his biggest strengths. He’s also a reliable tackler and dangerous ball-hawk for opposing quarterbacks. Those attributes do show up in the stat sheet.

Jenkins will be playing 2019 at 31 years old. He’s among the oldest starting safeties in the NFL. He hasn’t shown signs of slowing down and could be a surprise entry at safety this season.

Defensive Back

Casey Hayward

Casey Hayward was close to earning this honor twice recently. He made Second-Team All-Pro in 2016 and 2017.

When Hayward arrived in San Diego in 2016 he transformed into a different player. His first year as a Charger, Hayward exploded for seven interceptions and immediately became one of the better free agent signing in recent memory giving the Chargers a CB1.

Hayward’s inconsistency may have been a reason why Green Bay let him walk in free agency. He has a habit of going boom-or-bust in the interception department. His pick totals have gone as follows: 6, 0 (played 3 games), 3, 0, 7, 4 and 0. Two full seasons of zero interceptions and four of 3+. Hayward has the ability to be an elite ball-hawk but that doesn't always show up. It isn’t just the interception numbers that dip during the seasons either. His deflected passes also fall-off without warning. He has three seasons of 20+ deflections and three seasons of less than 10.

It’s a curious case of erratic effectiveness in coverage. Especially considering he played with two All-Pro’s in the secondary in 2018. He isn’t operating on an island.

Casey Hayward will be 30 when the season rolls around. It’s possible he’s hit he wall that many cornerbacks run into at age 30. If not, a return to form could be in the cards. Really anything is possible.

2019.05.30 02:06 claball One cold hard truth for each NFL team in 2019

It’s tough to be negative on Reddit. Actually, I’ll rephrase that. It’s tough to not be ridiculed for being negative on Reddit.

It’s understandable. Every team does have reason to be optimistic about this upcoming season. Anyone who comes flying in to talk down on those positive expectations is only raining on the parade of anticipatory fans.

Personally, I hate being negative. Nothing good comes of it.

But, every year, fans can get overcome by their emotions in the lead up to the season and get blindsided by glaring weaknesses that doom a season that could have been seen from a mile away.

That’s what I’m here for. I’m here to scream “watch out!” as that golf ball is hurtling towards your head. I’m here to nudge your drink away from the edge before your elbow sends it crashing to the floor. I’m here to let you discretely know that your fly is down before you leave the bathroom.

I’m here to even things out.

Bad things happen. But, they’re less bad when you see them coming.

\There were a few teams I had a hard time hating on. The Colts, Saints, Chargers, Packers and Bears have assembled really air-tight rosters. These team’s critiques were more of a stretch than the others.*


Arizona Cardinals

David Johnson is 27 years old

I decided to kick this off with something no one can argue me on. David Johnson is 27, that is until December 16th when he’ll be 28. But we’re living in the moment here.

The reason I point this out is because it feels like we’re still waiting for him to fully unleash who he is as a player. He had a spectacular season in 2016 where he tallied over 2,000 yards from scrimmage and 20 total touchdowns. He followed that up with an unfortunate early season exit after carrying the ball just 11 times. Then, in 2018, Johnson got caught up in Mike McCoy’s web of ineptitude and didn’t look like himself.

Johnson has suffered two season-ending injuries in his short career: a sprained MCL and a dislocated wrist. In a league with only two starting running backs over age 29 (McCoy and Peterson) it’s looking like David Johnson’s career is closer to the end than the beginning.

It’s a sobering thought for one of the most entertaining running backs in the NFL. But that’s just the cold, hard truth.

Atlanta Falcons

Atlanta’s pass rush won’t be any better

Most team’s are known for something. For the Cowboys it’s dominating offensive line. For the Ravens it’s a stifling secondary. For the Falcons, it’s their inability to create pressure on the quarterback.

Atlanta’s non-existent pass rush has been a known deficiency for a few years. Even in Vic Beasley’s deceptive break-out season with 15.5 sacks his overall impact wasn’t as dramatic as that number would suggest.

This season’s group is looking a lot like last season’s group. Vic Beasley and Takkarist McKinley at end. Grady Jarrett and a rotation of “J.A.G.’s” at the other DT spot. In free agency Atlanta brought back Adrian Clayborn. They did add a defensive end in the fourth round as well in John Cominsky. Conveniently enough, Cominsky’s biggest weakness is as a pass rusher. Perfect.

Without many changes on the defensive front, this unit isn’t looking improved heading into the new season. That doesn’t bode well for a top-10 offense that’s hoping to get some help from their counterpart.

Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore's old-school ground and pound attack will drive them right into the ground

Lamar Jackson’s 147 rushing attempts as a rookie was 21 more than the next highest quarterback in 2018. Jackson only started seven games.

Granted, it was largely as a result of the Ravens acclimating him midseason and playing to his immediate skill-set. But, that aspect of Jackson’s game is not going anywhere. On top of that they added hard-hitting between the tackles runner Mark Ingram. Baltimore is gearing up for a “wear you down” type of offense in 2019.

That directly contradicts what literally every one of the other 31 teams are doing. Sure, the Seahawks and Cowboys will always be a run first team. However, no squad will be passing as little as the Ravens are preparing to.

This was an interesting attack for a few weeks when Jackson was making his first few starts. But that identity aged quickly. In Baltimore’s playoff game, Lamar completed less than 50% of his passes. The Chargers held their rushing attack to less than 100 total yards.

Baltimore got beat. Not terribly thanks to their elite defense. But, Los Angeles proved that this attack could be stopped if they do just one thing: Force Lamar Jackson to throw. Rushing the ball 50 times per game isn’t helping Jackson develop. That game plan could doom them this season.

Buffalo Bills

Josh Allen might be the answer, but we won’t know after this season

Quarterbacks need at least two seasons in the NFL to even begin to be judged. Josh Allen is probably going to need three.

He looked promising at times but one thing held him back: A lack of talent around him. That issue has followed them into 2019.

LeSean McCoy is back at running back and they added another 30+ name for support in Frank Gore. Zay Jones leads a receiving corps followed by John Brown, Robert Foster and Cole Beasley. Tyler Kroft was set as the dynamic young tight end until his season hit a major bump after suffering a broken foot.

Buffalo’s offensive line received some solid reinforcements with center Mitch Morse and tackle Cody Ford among other players to fill the gaps.

Oddly enough, the Bills were one of the most active teams in the offseason on offense. You can’t say they didn’t try. Unfortunately, it’s the same core group in terms of skilled position players. Josh is going to need more than a washed up running back and a drop-prone receiver to help pull the Bills out of the depths.

Carolina Panthers

Carolina is in the toughest position to make the postseason of all playoff contenders

It’s 2019, which means the Panthers are a threat again. The odd/even year theory has been pretty consistent in Charlotte.

Unfortunately, they find themselves in an uphill battle before the season has even begun. Out of division schedule aside, Carolina has more working against them than any other playoff contender.

The Saints are a favorite by many to reach the Super Bowl. The Falcons are a perennial playoff menace barring injury to key players. The Bucs are are feisty enough to be a factor. So where does that leave the Panthers?

They’re basically the unanimous third best team in this division. That puts them in play for a hotly contested Wild Card spot.

For a team that is absolutely in play for a postseason birth, they have an unusually hard journey ahead to just escape their division.

Chicago Bears

Chicago's receiving corps will hold back their offense

At a glance, Chicago’s arsenal of wide receivers is as solid as any in the league. But if you look a little closer, it could be what keeps Trubisky from taking that next step.

Let’s start with Allen Robinson. At this point in his career, it would be apt to label him a “one-year wonder”. He broke out as a sophomore for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns at a massive 17.5 yards per reception. Outside of 2015, though, Robinson has never topped 900 yards, six touchdowns or 14 yards per reception in a season. It’s a clear outlier that has led AR14 to being greatly overrated.

Next is the shifty duo of Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller. Gabriel is a niche player. He’s best as the third option in an attack and especially thrives in creating yards. Anthony Miller is entering just his second season. He’s a crafty receiver with great moves with the ball in his hands. Both are complimentary players.

Rounding out the receiver group is “Swiss Army Knife” Cordarelle Patterson and rookie Riley Ridley.

At tight end is Trey Burton. The expectations for him were sky-high after leaving Philly. But, he only averaged 10 yards per reception in 2018. His threat as a receiver appears limited on the field.

None of these players averaged more than 14 yards per reception in 2018. Matt Nagy’s system is certainly creative, but there seems to be a lack of blue-chip talent to carry the group.

Cincinnati Bengals

Cincinnati is wasting an elite skilled-position corps by keeping Andy Dalton

Despite vastly outplaying his draft position, Andy Dalton cannot catch a break. That’s not about to change now.

The Bengals are the most home-grown team in the NFL. They rarely dip into free agency and prioritize their own above all. This strict draft and develop plan has netted them a fantastic core of offensive playmakers. A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd may be the best receiver duo in the NFL. Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard are a dynamic duo in the backfield. Add in John Ross and a bevy of serviceable tight ends and this offensive attack is dangerous.

Unfortunately, their biggest weakness is at the most important position.

Andy Dalton’s skill-set will never be able to take full advantage of the wealth he has at his disposal. The Bengals just wasted an opportunity to move on from Dalton as a new coaching staff moved in.

This team has the pieces to be an intimidating force in the AFC North. But as long as Dalton is behind center, they’ll be a forgotten entity.

Cleveland Browns

It will be impossible to live up to the hype

John Dorsey and Co. have been busy this offseason. They’ve watched big names leave like Kevin Zeitler, Jabrill Peppers and Jamie Collins. More importantly, Cleveland has ushered new players in like Odell Beckham, Olivier Vernon, Sheldon Richardson and Kareem Hunt.

It’s a reloaded roster that already had solid core talent. Especially after Baker Mayfield’s incredible rookie season, the hype surrounding this team has (understandably) reached nuclear levels.

With all of the conversation surrounding the Browns already this offseason with more to come, it’s going to take a lot for this team to satisfy expectations.

Usually the “winner of the offseason” isn’t a title that ages well into the season. But, last season the Rams reached the Super Bowl after adding huge names in free agency. That only adds fuel to the fire in Cleveland that this load up on talent could produce big result

It’s possible this team is dominant. But hype of a Super Bowl run could lead fans disappointed after a playoff appearance. Expectations are huge in sports. The expectations set in Cleveland are nearing unreachable levels.

Dallas Cowboys

Dallas isn't going anywhere with Jason Garrett as head coach

It seems like Jason Garrett would have to go 0-16 and get caught snorting cocaine Chris Foerster-style for Jerry Jones to fire him. Even then, it wouldn’t be too surprising if Jones just put him on the proverbial “hot seat”. Suffice it to say Jason Garrett will probably be is Dallas for a while.

As long as he is, this team isn’t going all the way. He’s the head coach version of the Dalton-scale.

Garrett is by no means a bad coach. He’s brought the Cowboys two division championships in the past three years. But, his conservative style isn’t going to shock teams like the Patriots and Rams who are constantly evolving with their innovative attacks.

The Boys will compete every season. However, if Jerry Jones’ goal is to bring the Lombari to Jerry World, he’ll have to look elsewhere at head coach.

Denver Broncos

Joe Flacco will be Case Keenum 2.0

This is definitely the least spicy take of the list. But, the Broncos brought Flacco in for a reason. They believe he’ll be an upgrade from Keenum. Upgrade? No. Downgrade? No. I’ll take the push.

At this point in his career, Joe Flacco is basically the name-brand Case Keenum. He has the flashy Super Bowl win. He had (not anymore) heated debates held around him being elite. He even (somehow) got the mega-contract from the Ravens. As a player, however, Flacco is Keenum and vice versa.

The Broncos learned from their mistake last year of not having a young stud waiting behind Keenum if all went south. This year, Drew Lock will be breathing down Joe Flacco’s neck similar to how Lamar Jackson was last season. It’s not an enviable position Flacco is in, but that’s what happens you’ve reached the point in your career when you’re only “kind of” wanted.

Detroit Lions

Matthew Stafford is the NFL’s most average quarterback

Since the introduction of the “Dalton Scale” (thanks "Around the NFL") the debate of who is a franchise quarterback and who isn’t has been a compelling one. But, that’s not what this is about. This is more focused on the most average. The 16th best quarterback in the NFL to be exact.

That player is Matthew Stafford.

Now, this isn’t to condemn Stafford. He’s a really talented player who is without a doubt a franchise quarterback. It more speaks to the insane wealth of quarterbacks in the NFL today.

I won’t go into depth about the 15 quarterbacks ahead of Stafford. Instead, explain why I think Stafford is ranked here.

Matt “Stat-Pad” Stafford has appeared in the playoffs three times and lost in the first round each time. Pretty average. He’s thrown for an average of 23 touchdowns per year. Very average. He’s won an average of seven games per season. Definition of average.

Average isn’t always bad. Also, before you come screaming in with how I’m underrating Stafford, take a second and assess the quarterbacks currently in the NFL. You might be surprised with how many great ones there are.

Green Bay Packers

Aaron Rodgers is 35 years old

It doesn’t feel like Rodgers is the sixth oldest starter in the league but that’s where he stands. That’s saying something too because the crop of quarterbacks playing far past when most expected is a surprisingly large number.

He’s accomplished a lot in his time in the league. However, most of it has been individual awards. Apart from a Super Bowl appearance (and victory) Rodgers has two MVPs, two First-Team All-Pros and seven Pro Bowls.

For a quarterback who many consider the most talented of his time, his postseason resume isn’t as extensive as you’d expect. Eight playoff appearance in 11 years as a starter is really solid. But, he’s reached the Conference Championship just three times.

There aren’t many teams who have been carried more by a single player than the Packers. But team success is important for a quarterbacks legacy. At 35, it feels like Rodgers’ time is starting to run out.

Houston Texans

Deshaun Watson will be running for his life again

The Texans’ offensive line gave up 13 more sacks than any defense combined for in 2018. Watson was taken to the ground 65 times. That’s also more than any quarterback since Texans’ passer David Carr in 2005. It is absolutely unbelievable Deshaun Watson made it through 2018 without major injury.

So, looking forward to 2019 does Watson have reason for hope? Tentatively. Houston added two rookie starters on the offensive line in the offseason, both at tackle. They settled for Tytus Howard in the first round after Andre Dillard was sniped a pick before them. In the second round they took Max Scharping out of Northern Illinois.

Howard started 34 games while attending Alabama State. 23 of those starts were at right tackle and only 11 were at left tackle. He’s projected as a left tackle in the NFL mostly due to his athleticism. But boy is he a raw prospect. Max Scharping also needs improvement in his technique as he mans the right side

The Texans invested valuable capital in the offensive line through the draft. But, two projects at tackle likely won’t cure their woes this season.

Indianapolis Colts

Indianapolis missed an opportunity to add a featured back in the offseason

The Colts’ offensive line blossomed into a unit every NFL quarterback wish he had protecting him. Not only did they hold Andrew Luck to just 21 sacks, but they asserted their dominance in the run-game.

Speaking of running... Marlon Mack is a good player. He’s an exciting, splashy back with good power and speed. But, the Colts line made Mack look good in 2018, not the other way around. This makes you wonder what a real, three-down featured back could do behind this line.

I’m not saying they should have signed Le’Veon Bell. They were right to pass on him. But, the draft offered a few low-cost backs that could have brought Indianapolis’ rushing attack to a new level. Miles Sanders in the second round. David Montgomery in the third round. Damien Harris in the third round.

The duo of Marlon Mack and Nyheim Hines is a solid one-two punch. But, it would have been fun to see a true potential star running behind the Colts’ line.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Jacksonville’s offensive core is among the weakest in the league

The main attraction in Jacksonville is their star-studded defense. Not many are up to date on their offense. Allow me to refresh your memory. It stinks.

Leonard Fournette’s nagging injuries are well-documented. Even when he’s on the field, his 3.7 career YPC isn’t scaring anyone. At wide receiver is a group full of budding star... ters. Marqise Lee, Dede Westbrook, Keelan Cole, D.J. Chark and Chris Conley may illustrate the smallest difference between a team’s #1 WR and #5 WR. That’s not a good thing. Former Cowboy Geoff Swaim and rookie Josh Oliver tentatively hold down the tight end position.

It’s a stark contrast from the wealth of options new Jaguar quarterback Nick Foles had in Philly.

Foles will have to do a lot with very little if he hopes to be an upgrade from Blake Bortles.

Kansas City Chiefs

Kansas City will struggle to repeat as division champs

Kansas City burst onto the scene in 2018 as Patrick Mahomes helped this offense reach its full potential. Their offense was firing on all cylinders. They won their division and a playoff game in the inaugural season of the Mahomes-era.

However, thanks to their porous defense, it took Mahomes throwing for 5,000 yards ad 50 touchdowns to win even 12 games. That’s not going to happen again. Only three quarterbacks in NFL history have thrown 50 touchdowns in a single season. Odds are it won’t happen again in Mahomes’ entire career.

Their defense made some additions, but most were just replacing losses they sustained. Dee Ford, Justin Houston and Eric Berry left. Frank Clark and Tyrann Mathieu arrived. The biggest difference, however, could be new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.

Even still, factoring in a Mahomes regression plus an improved defense, Kansas City could break even and win 12 games again next season. That may not be enough to beat out the Chargers who also won 12 in 2018.

Los Angeles Chargers

Joey Bosa’s health will deicide if this defense is elite or not

It’s well known that quarterback is the most important position in the NFL. But what about the second most important? That honor goes to edge rushers.

Players like Khalil Mack, Von Miller, Cameron Jordan, Demarcus Lawrence and Myles Garrett are each the most important player on their team’s defense. That goes for Joey Bosa as well.

Bosa has recorded 28.5 sacks in 35 career games. Unfortunately, that’s out of a possible 48 games in three seasons. He missed nine in 2018 due to a foot injury. Having Bosa healthy for a full 16 games is huge for this defense.

He’s one of the NFL’s top defensive ends. His ability to pressure the quarterback and slow down the run game frees up other players. Los Angeles has a stacked roster, but being able to rush the passer is vital for an elite defense. All of the top defenses from 2018 had elite pass rushing presences.

Mack for Chicago, Suggs for Baltimore, Campbell for Jacksonville, Watt for Houston, Lawrence for Dallas, Flowers for New England, Hunter for Minnesota and so on.

With Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram, the Chargers have an elite pas rushing duo. The only thing that could derail that, and L.A.’s defense, is an absent Joey Bosa.

Los Angeles Rams

We’ve seen the best Jared Goff has to offer

Jared Goff is a good quarterback. Beyond that assessment, it’s fairly difficult to say exactly how good of a player Goff really is. But, one thing is for certain: He has limitations.

Goff and the Rams came up significantly short in Super Bowl 53. While it certainly took a team effort to only score three points, Goff’s personal shortcomings were on full display. His inability to read defensive adjustments was exploited by the intelligent Patriots defense. It magnified a bigger issue that’s been known for a while: Sean McVay is a big reason why Goff has been so successful.

A head coach can only do so much from the sideline on game day. It’s up to Goff to progress in the mental aspect of the game. This isn’t to say he can’t. Goff is still only 24 years old. But, it’s legitimate to ask if we’ve already seen the best from Jared Goff.

Players who are highly dependent on a system can only go so far. The Rams’ system may outgrow Jared Goff sooner rather than later.

Miami Dolphins

Josh Rosen is in no better position to succeed in Miami than he was in Arizona

You can never judge a quarterback after just one season in the NFL. That is especially true for new Dolphin Josh Rosen. To put it simply: Rosen was set up to fail in Arizona as a rookie.

It’s difficult enough to acclimate to the NFL when the situation is right. The situation in Arizona could not have been more wrong. He played behind a horrendous offensive line that gave him about two seconds to get rid of the ball. His offense was orchestrated by Mike McCoy who didn’t have an inkling of how to use their playmakers. His head coach was defensive minded and wound up getting fired after 16 games. It was a certified disaster.

Now, Josh Rosen is in Miami with hopes of a new start. Unfortunately for him, the location is new, but the situation isn’t.

Miami’s offense has a lot of the same issues as Arizona’s. A lack of reliable playmakers on offense, a depleted offensive line (outside of Laremy Tunsil) and another rookie defensive head coach. His offensive coordinator, Chad O’Shea, is also in the first coordinator gig of his career.

As well as Rosen has handled the ridiculous situation he’s been put in, it might not be getting better anytime soon.

Minnesota Vikings

Minnesota isn't going anywhere with Kirk Cousins at quarterback

In 2018, Minnesota had a top-5 defense in yards allowed. They had a top-10 defense in points allow. They had a quarterback who threw for 30 touchdowns. They had two 1,000 yard receivers. Yet, they missed the playoffs after winning just eight games. What’s missing?

To put it simply: Being competitive against competitive teams.

When matching up against average to below-average defenses, Kirk Cousins doesn’t have a problem. In eight games against bottom-half defenses, Cousins threw 18 TDs to 4 INT. However, in eight games against top-half defenses, Cousins threw 12 TDs to 6 INTs.

The Vikings only won three games out of their eight matchups against defenses that rank in the top-half of the league.

Losing is a team result. But, there’s a pattern here of Kirk Cousins not playing well when tested. It’s a trait that makes it difficult to get a team past the first 17 weeks of the NFL season.

New England Patriots

New England’s lack of offensive weapons for Brady will begin to show through

People have been ridiculing the Patriots’ lack of on-paper offensive talent for years. Belicheck and Brady haven’t had a problem operating without big-name stars for a long time. Mainly because they’ve had one big name making it all work: Rob Gronkowski.

With the Hall of Fame tight end now permanently out of the picture, the post-Gronk era begins in Foxborough.

It’s now the indestructible Julian Edelman, rookie N’Keal Harry, broken Demaryius Thomas and journey-man Dontrelle Inman as the top pass-catchers for Tom.

If Brady is able to sustain the Patriots’ level of success it might be some of his greatest work ever. If not, we can’t say we’ll be surprised given the surrounding talent.

New Orleans Saints

The pressure is on to reach the Super Bowl

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Drew Brees is nearing the end of his career. Well, he's 40 now and it only gets more true every year.

This team is more loaded than it’s been in a long time. There are virtually no holes on New Orleans’ roster. If you want to get picky you could say Ted Ginn Jr. isn’t a great #2 wideout. Or that Eli Apple doesn’t stack up against other team’s #2 cornerbacks. But, reality is, even at the weakest points of this depth chart, the Saints are a step above a vast majority of the league.

The Super Bowl window couldn’t be more wide open. But, it’s only open as long as Drew Brees is playing at an elite level.

He showed signs of slowing down at the end of 2018. But nothing drastic enough to worry about their 2019 prospects. The pressure is on to make a deep playoff run and take advantage of the “Super-Team” New Orleans finds in front of them.

New York Giants

The coaching staff will play Eli for way longer than they should

Despite picking Daniel Jones 6th overall, it doesn’t feel like the Giants will be handing him the reins anytime soon. It usually takes an injury or poor play for a rookie to supplant a veteran mid-season. If there’s two things Eli Manning is, it’s durable and consistent.

It’s going to take the Giants understanding that they’re not going anywhere significant with Eli Manning under center. NFL teams don’t make drastic quarterback changes when things are fine and that’s exactly what Big Blue has been the past couple seasons.

It wouldn’t make sense for New York to play Eli all season just because he’s under contract. But, as of now, it feels like that’s inevitable.

New York Jets

Le’Veon Bell’s days of being an elite running back are over

Le’Veon Bell just cannot stay away from controversy. After executing the most dramatic hold-out in recent memory, he’s again the subject of an intra-team squabble. This time it wasn’t his fault. Adam Gase reportedly didn’t want to spend big money on a running back in free agency.

While trying not to be too over-reactionary, this little story can’t make Bell happy. He’s secured the bag, but hasn’t secured respect in New York yet.

This isn’t to say Bell will suddenly become a bad player with with Gang Green. It’s more a “compare and contrast” situation between the Steelers and Jets. The comparisons are very few and far between.

In Pittsburgh, Bell ran behind a loaded offensive line. He had a Hall of Fame receiver keeping teams from stacking the box. He also had a Hall of Fame quarterback opening up the offense. The circumstance in New York couldn’t be any different.

The Steelers have had long-standing success with running backs in their system. Now, Bell will have to prove himself outside of that environment.

Oakland Raiders

Oakland's defense is in store for another last place finish in sacks

One of the favorite statistics to emerge from the 2018 season is the Raiders’ entire defense combining for less sacks than seven players managed individually. 13 sacks over 16 games is good enough for 17 less than the 31st team. Pretty mind-blowing.

The question is: Did they do enough to not repeat at 32nd in the league in 2019. My answer: I’m skeptical.

Oakland’s only big addition along the defensive line was with the fourth overall pick Clelin Ferrell. As far as I know, Ferrell could be the new Khalil Mack. But, if he’s literally anything less, this team will be back in the cellar for sack production.

It’s fun to crap on Gruden’s Raiders. However, this seems more realistic than just hate.

Philadelphia Eagles

Losing Nick Foles will prove to be disastrous

I’ll start off by saying it was never feasible to keep Foles long-term. He was headed out sooner or later and it ended up happening for $50 million guaranteed. That’s a number even Howie Roseman could have never made magically appear.

It’s no secret that Nick Foles has been the NFL’s most valuable backup over the past couple seasons. He’s given Philadelphia postseason relevancy and, most of all, the team’s first Super Bowl title. Carson Wentz’s injury history is extensive enough to doubt he can make it through a season. Without Foles waiting in the wings, the Eagles' season could be kaput after an injury to Wentz.

It’s as simple as this: The Eagles lost their second most valuable player. That’s a significant concern.

Pittsburgh Steelers

Antonio Brown’s absence will be a big blow to this offense

The feeling among NFL fans seems to be one of “good riddance” about Antonio Brown leaving Pittsburgh. But, we need to pump the breaks on this being just another receiver walking out of the door for the Steelers.

Pittsburgh has lost it’s fair share of star wideouts in their prime. Most recently it was Mike Wallace and Emmanuel Sanders. While Brown is no longer in his prime, his 30’s will be far better than most other wideout’s 20s.

Ben Roethlisberger and Co. are losing an elite player who opened up every level of the offense. This team looks a lot different without Brown on the field. It’s too early to label Pittsburgh’s new #1, Smith-Schuster, a star or “in over his head”. But, one thing is for certain: It will be a group effort to replace the NFL's biggest diva this season.

San Francisco 49ers

San Francisco’s poor secondary could neutralize all the work done on the front four

The 49ers’ defensive front looks awesome. DeForest Buckner, Dee Ford and Nick Bosa star as Arik Armstead and Solomon Thomas provide support. That’s five first round picks.

However, as dominating as that unit may be, the secondary is looking like the opposite. It may not matter if there is pressure on the quarterback in three seconds if the ball is already gone after two. Very little was done to improve this poor group in the offseason. Jason Verrett was added but with his extensive injury history, he can’t be counted on as a reliable member.

Elsewhere at defensive back, Richard Sherman finally began to show signs of age. Ahkello Witherspoon didn’t take the step many hoped he would and was a liability most of the season. Jimmie Ward and Jaquiski Tartt have injury history and have plateaued as below-average safeties.

It’s an uninspiring group. Wideouts should be looking forward to facing San Francisco’s defense in 2019.

Seattle Seahawks

Selecting Rashaad Penny in the first round was a massive mistake

It’s no secret that when Seattle took running back Rashaad Penny in the first round of 2018 many were perplexed. Then, after the season, that feeling of confusion turned into frustration.

Penny not only failed to win the job, but he only had the third most rushing attempts on the team (behind Chris Carson and Mike Davis). Penny already seems like the odd man out after Carson’s breakout season and with receiving specialists C.J. Prosise and J.D. McKissic on the roster. He’s definitely the most highly invested-in backup RB in the NFL.

By taking Penny 27th overall, Seattle missed on the chance to add players like Darius Leonard, Braden Smith, Will Hernandez, Donte Jackson and Jessie Bates. It was an odd move at the time and looks no better now.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay's secondary will doom this team like it did in 2018

It’s tough to win games when your defense gives up 29 points, which is exactly how many Tampa Bay yielded per game in 2018.

Frankly, their entire defense was a mess and on pace for record setting futility by a defensive unit in NFL history. But, the secondary was the most obvious weakness.

They enter 2019 with the same group plus a couple rookies. Day two picks Sean Bunting and Jamel Dean will join Vernon Hargreaves and Carlton Davis to form the most no-name corner group in the NFL. At safety, it’s up-and-comer Justin Evans and sophomore Jordan Whitehead. Tampa Bay’s four starters last year had a combined three years of starting experience between them entering the season. It’s an aggressively young corps without a player to hang their hat on.

That unproven youth doesn’t bode well for hopes of an improved group in 2019.

Tennessee Titans

Marcus Mariota is not the answer at quarterback

The Tennessee Titans have been in purgatory for what seems like decades. They’ve won three playoff games this century. The most recent victory required Mariota to miraculously complete a pass to himself for a touchdown. None of the three playoff wins have been by more than three points.

Now, Mariota can only answer for the past four seasons in Tennessee. But even in that small sample size, he’s never completed a 16-game season and has forced his backup to start meaningful games. In the games Mariota has participated in, he’s failed to pop off the screen the way you’d expect a former second overall pick to.

Mariota hasn’t thrown for more than two touchdowns in a game since 2016. You might think that’s a product of his supporting cast. But, Tennessee has drafted a top-5 receiver, 2nd round running back, had a top-10 tight end and a really solid offensive line.

What’s missing is a quarterback and the Titans might have one. But, his name isn’t Marcus Mariota.

Washington Redskins

There’s a silver lining to losing Reuben Foster for the season

Any injury, especially a season-ending one in May, is heartbreaking. It can slow down a team’s season before it’s even begun and leave the player in the unfortunate position of not being able to contribute.

With all the negativity, I’ll try to end on a bright note. While the loss of Foster is a big one, it could lift a weight off the shoulders of players and coaches to not have to endure potential questions about Foster’s questionable past during the season.

An NFL season is as mental as it is physical and we’ve seen many times before teams collapse because of happenings off the field.

Without Reuben Foster on the field this season, Washington can hopefully skip some of the unnecessary commentary about Foster’s history. It will also allow another Foster (Mason) to step into a bigger role after a nice 2018 season.

  • More uncertainty in WCW, both on-screen and off-screen. After both Nitro and Thunder did all-time record low ratings the week before, Bischoff decided to significantly re-write this week's Nitro at the last minute and brought back Booker T, which totally goes against the long-term angle they were planning, which would be all the top babyface stars (Hogan, Goldberg, Sting, Nash, and Booker T) to come back at once when the company relaunches. But after the low rating, Bischoff evidently panicked and rushed Booker T back to television early. Basically, at this point, no long-term plan is really finalized anymore and the other guys may be brought back sooner. It's all up in the air right now and in the meantime, the "new owners" storyline that has been acknowledged on TV is being slowed down. Why is it being slowed down you ask? Well....
  • Speaking of up in the air, the off-screen uncertainty is because the WCW/Fusient Media sale nearly fell apart this week. During the final process of examining all the expenses, Fusient discovered that WCW's losses and the downturn in other aspects of the business was worse than they were previously led to believe. All the issues seem to have been mostly worked out as of press time and they still expect to finalize the deal in the next week or two, but for a minute there, it was looking like the whole thing was going to fall apart at the last minute. (Whew, can you imagine?!)
  • WWF's No Way Out PPV is in the books and was a potential show of the year. Even though the TV product has been stale lately, they've still been delivering strong PPVs but this was even better than usual. It set up the expected Rock vs. Austin main event at Wrestlemania (though Dave says there was some lobbying backstage from a certain someone to make it a three-way. He doesn't say who, but it's pretty obvious he means Triple H, trying to politic his way into the WM main event). Even the matches that looked bad on paper before the show ended up delivering. Trish vs. Stephanie was better than it had any right to be and Dave gives Stratus a ton of credit for carrying Stephanie to a good match and to Stephanie for holding up her end better than expected.
  • Other notes from the PPV: Austin vs. Triple H in the 2-out-of-3 falls match was a match of the year candidate (this is actually a Three Stages of Hell match, with each fall having a different stipulation, but they weren't calling it that back then). After the finish of the match, someone threw a full can of beer in the ring and hit Austin right in the head while he was laying on the ground. Dave gives the match 4.75 stars. Rock vs. Angle in the main event was also great, getting 4.25 stars. Rock won his 6th WWF title, which is the all-time record (Rock, Hogan and Bret Hart were previously tied at 5 for the record). Dave says that would have been a huge story at one time, but nowadays, title reigns don't mean anything so whatever. The finish looked it got screwed up by Earl Hebner but otherwise, great match that made Angle look like a killer in defeat.
  • UFC 30 is in the books and it's notable because it's the first show under the new ownership of Zuffa. Behind the scenes, the changes are night and day. Many of the big name fighters, like Mark Coleman and Frank Shamrock, are talking about returning because it's believed UFC will be paying a lot more to fighters now. There's expected to be a much bigger focus on creating stars and putting together matchups fans want to see. The announcers did a lot more hyping up each fighter's personality and storylines in each fight and they aired video packages and things like that for them. The plan is to build Tito Ortiz as the UFC's marquee star and ironically enough, new UFC day-to-day head Dana White used to be Tito's business manager. Fortunately for them, Tito delivered, winning the main event in only 29 seconds. The UFC's matchmaker John Peretti wasn't there and many of the matches were put together by Joe Silva.
  • XFL Week 4 on NBC did a 2.61 rating, down another 15% from last week (which itself was down 33% from Week 2) and making it one of the lowest rated shows in the history of prime time television on the four major networks. The ratings for the other games weren't much better. The UPN game was down 12% while the TNN game was down 6%. In fact, ECW on TNN occasionally did higher ratings than the XFL games this week and last week on TNN did. So, uh....yeah. Not good news for XFL.
  • Wrestling ratings news: the Jeff Jarrett vs. Dustin Rhodes main event with Flair as referee set the record for all-time lowest-rated main event in Nitro history. Demographically, it's even worse news, with only 53,000 teens watching (the Raw main event was watched by 1.4 million teens).
  • Juventud Guerrera worked a show in Mexico and the newspapers reported that he came out in no condition to be wrestling (aka fucked up on something) and criticized his performance and talked about how it was wrong that other wrestlers in the match had to put their safety at risk by working with him.
  • Legendary Lucha wrestler Fishman lost a mask vs. mask match back in August. He was supposed to be paid more than $26,000 for it. He was paid the first $4,000 but then the checks the promotion sent him for the remaining $22,000 bounced. Later, they tried to give him a new car as payment, but he refused it. Fishman wants his money (this turns into a bit of an issue later on).
  • Steve Williams' sister passed away this week from stomach cancer. Williams was on tour with AJPW at the time and because they're struggling and because he's the biggest foreign star they have, he decided to stay and continue working the shows he was booked for (sadly enough, Williams himself later dies of cancer also).
  • Antonio Inoki continued his claims of bringing in Mike Tyson. He held a press conference this week and announced Tyson will be facing Naoya Ogawa in June at the Tokyo Dome in a match that will air on PPV around the world. This led to boxer Lennox Lewis' manager releasing a statement implying that Tyson was scared to fight Lewis and said he's going to go be a pro wrestler in Japan instead. The next day, Tyson's business manager Shelly Finkel told the AP, "Not only is Mike not wrestling there, he has never spoken to these people." Inoki claims Tyson will be getting paid between $40-50 million for the match. Needless to say, this is clearly some ol' Inoki bullshit and it's not happening. Carnies gonna carny.
  • Don Frye was on the Observer live show and talked about wanting to go to either WWF or UFC and noted that he has had discussions with WWF.
  • Chris Candido and Tammy Sytch will be working on the upcoming NJPW tour, which is the same tour Scott Hall is working. Dave thinks that's a bit of a dangerous group to have together in one place at the same time if they're trying to stay out of trouble.
  • Nobuhiko Takada claims he's training to represent Japan at the 2004 Olympics in Greco-roman wrestling. Dave says this is ridiculous because Takada will be 42 by then and he has never competed in amateur wrestling at any level in his life. So needless to say....no.
  • Mandalay Sports announced a new venture called Matrats. It will apparently be a weekly television show based around crazy high spot wrestling, featuring teenagers as the top stars. The audience is mostly planted female fans who "whooooo!" and go crazy over all the dreamy boy wrestlers, like some sort of N'Sync-esque boy band shit. The top stars are going to be Teddy Hart and Harry Smith (aka Davey Boy Smith Jr.). They have already taped pilot episodes in Calgary and the company has licensing, PPV, sponsorship, and advertising plans in place and are projecting to gross more than $18 million the first year. Umm....sure thing, you guys (Eric Bischoff later gets involved with this briefly after WCW folds. Spoiler: it does not gross $18 million. Or even $18).
  • The annual independent ECWA Super 8 tournament took place this week, featuring a lot of notable indie guys. In the finals, Low Ki won by defeating American Dragon (Daniel Bryan). Dragon was said to be the star performer of the tournament, having great matches with Spanky and Reckless Youth along with Low Ki (this tournament still takes place each year and features well known indie guys).
  • Former WCW wrestler Blitzkrieg is looking to get back into wrestling. In 1999, he had the best match of the year in WCW against Juventud Guerrera, and WCW rewarded him for it by releasing him. At that point, he lost interest in wrestling and retired and started working a regular job in the computer industry. He won Rookie of the Year in the Observer Awards for 1999 after he had already retired.
  • Let's just copy and paste this one: "Roddy Piper is saying that he's going to be doing a rap CD for Death Row Records that will be rap with no profanity saying he's mad after hearing one of his kids play some Eminem music because of the profanity." (I googled this and yup. It was posted on Piper's website. He seemed to be under the impression that Eminem was on Death Row though).
  • Gonna copy and paste one more, the saddest sentence ever, regarding ECW: "There is no PPV show on 3/11 and at this point, barring something unforeseen, there is no ECW."
  • Brian Adams of Kronik ended up needing an emergency appendectomy last week which will keep him out of action for about 6 weeks (WCW will be dead by then, but Kronik eventually briefly reunites in WWF).
  • Just this week, WCW has finally started trying to book venues for April. Due to the planned shutdown, WCW didn't have any shows booked beyond the 3/26 Nitro and hadn't booked any arenas. But with the shutdown scrapped, they're now looking for venues (they probably shouldn't bother). The long-term plan is still to do future Nitro tapings all from one central location but that probably won't be until the summer.
  • Notes from Nitro: they started a tournament to crown cruiserweight tag team champions. Dave thinks this is a bad idea, because adding new titles to a division that nobody cares about isn't going to make people care more. The Cat resigned his on-screen commissioner role to feud with Kanyon, which Dave is just exasperated by. Literally just a week ago, the whole storyline for the show was The Cat fighting to get his job back and now this week, he quits it. That's about it. Nothing notable happening on TV lately, as WCW continues to be in a holding pattern waiting for this sale to go through. (Only 4 more Nitros left...)
  • Plans for Ric Flair to write an autobiography have apparently been scrapped. Turns out Goldberg's book was a major flop and the view of many in the publishing industry right now is that people will buy WWF books, but there's no interest in books for anyone outside of WWF.
  • Arn Anderson has been suspended for 2 weeks by WCW. Dave doesn't have all the details yet but it apparently has something to do with a Luger vs. Palumbo match on Thunder last week that Anderson was the agent for. I guess it didn't come across like it was supposed to on TV and Anderson took the heat for it, enough so that he was suspended (I assume there'll be more on this next week).
  • WCW has cancelled its developmental deal with indie promotion NWA Wildside. A few WCW wrestlers who were booked to work shows for them in March will fulfill the dates but no more after that (and of course, WCW would end up dying before Wildside did. It's so interesting to see all these little business decisions and plans being made, everything business as usual, with no one knowing at the time that WCW would be dead in less than a month).
  • Random WCW notes: Lash Leroux was told to lose 20 pounds because they want him in the cruiserweight division and they don't want "chunky" cruiserweights. Gene Okerlund has 2 years left on his contract but hasn't been used in weeks. Despite rumors, neither Joey Styles or Don Callis have been offered contracts.
  • Stacy Carter (The Kat) was released by WWF this week and, in protest, her husband Jerry Lawler quit the company also. The news came in right at press time so Dave doesn't have all the details yet, so expect a lot more on this next week. But for now, the gist is that Lawler was told the company was going to release Kat and he basically said "if she goes, I go." That apparently wasn't enough to change their mind, so Lawler stuck with his wife and walked out with her. Lawler has said that neither he or Kat have any idea why this happened. There was no incident or anything and Lawler denied rumors that she had refused to do something she was asked. Dave thinks this whole situation could turn out to be pretty interesting because Lawler wears a lot of hats in WWF. He's the lead color commentator for every Raw, Smackdown, and PPV. Plus he's an XFL announcer. And he runs MCW in Memphis, which is a developmental territory for the WWF. It's expected that Tazz will end up getting the job of doing color commentary on all the shows, which is an enormous amount of pressure to put on a guy who has only done commentary a handful of times on Sunday Night Heat. (Tazz indeed takes over for Smackdown, but they end up finding someone else for Raw...)
  • Hey, speaking of MCW, they drew the biggest crowd in their history, around 4,000 people, for a show in Jonesboro, AR that was headlined by Kurt Angle vs. Triple H for the WWF title. Yeah, that'll do it. Several wrestlers did a run-in at the end of the match, among them being Spanky and American Dragon. They all attacked Triple H to cause the match to end in DQ. Several other WWF wrestlers worked the show also, including William Regal putting over MCW champ Steve Bradley.
WATCH: Triple H vs. Kurt Angle - MCW 2001
  • Rhino and Prototype both worked dark matches at the Smackdown tapings, with both men doing jobs.
  • Honda is the first sponsor to drop the XFL. Reportedly it wasn't due to ratings however, with the VP of marketing saying it was due to content. They didn't like all the focus on the scantily-clad cheerleaders, too much cross-promotion with WWF, and they didn't like Rock's recent promo that aired during a game where he took shots at the NFL. The Honda rep also criticized the fanbase, saying it was too downscale for them to associate with, basically implying the XFL fans are all poor losers who can't afford a Honda, so they don't want to advertise to them.
  • Still more XFL news, none of it good. On the Tonight Show, Jay Leno joked about it, saying, "Apparently the ratings for the XFL are so bad, the executives said, 'Just burn the league for the insurance money.'" Publicly, both Vince McMahon and NBC execs are putting on a brave face and saying they're still committed to the XFL long-term, but privately, it's being said that people within NBC are already looking for a way out of this sinking ship that Vince has dragged them onto. On the WWF side, there has definitely been talk of trying to build more stories into the game with players, coaches, and announcers (such as the recent Jesse Ventura incident with Hitmen coach Rusty Tillman). UPN has a 2-year contract with the XFL but they have the option to drop it after one year. Apparently, a lot of UPN affiliates are pressuring UPN to hurry up and announce that they won't be picking up XFL for a 2nd season so that they can start lining up new programming ASAP. If the ratings don't improve, it's expected the the west coast stations will start carrying XFL games on a 3-hour tape delay. Yet again, across the board, XFL games were dead last in network ratings. The ratings for XFL have dropped at an alarming rate, faster than even the USFL in the 80s (the last failed attempt to compete with the NFL). Desperate to get some kind of mainstream coup, McMahon apparently spoke with Lawrence Taylor about joining the league in some fashion. Attendance is way down and games in most cities are being heavily papered. This week's game at Soldier Field in Chicago was announced at 14,856 but the real number was closer to 12,000. And even that, a large chunk of it was freebies.
  • NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue has been quiet from the start about the XFL, but he finally addressed it this week during a speech at Yale University. "I was asked (about the XFL) by one of the Yale players at lunch and I have to confess, I've only seen about ten minutes of the XFL. And I can tell you that it was not the most rewarding way I've spent 10 minutes in the last month."
  • ECW wrestlers Christian York and Joey Matthews signed developmental deals with WWF and are expected to be sent to Memphis soon. The two wrestlers had recently agreed to come in to WCW on a per-appearance deal and were booked for the cruiserweight tag tournament. But they had no contract. So WWF signed them. Dave says all is fair in war and if the roles were reversed, Bischoff would do the same thing. (So there's a fun trivia fact. Most people think Haku was the last person to jump ship during the Monday night wars, but technically, it was York and Matthews. Even though neither of them actually wrestled a match for WCW during this time, they had agreed to and WCW had already started booking plans for them when WWF came calling).
  • Shawn Michaels and Mick Foley should both be returning to TV soon to set up angles for Wrestlemania. Michaels is expected to have a major role at WM, not in a match, but in some kind of angle to set up for his in-ring return. As for Foley, he'll be involved in Mania, but at this point, it doesn't look like he'll be doing a match either. The plan has always been Foley vs. Vince, but Foley has repeatedly shot down the idea and doesn't have any plans to wrestle again anytime soon.
WEDNESDAY: in-depth look at the scary state of pro wrestling in 2001, more on Jerry Lawler quitting WWF, Paul Heyman debuts in WWF, the XFL in desperation mode, and more...

2019.04.22 22:21 SamLavSheep What I think is happening in Bendy and The Ink Machine

This is my first theory, so maybe I overdid it, it's super lengthy and possibly I even contradict myself at some points, so don't take it too seriously. Rather take it as a flow of thought.
When we retrace the game with the seeing tool, we find evidence that Henry is stuck in a time loop (we see tally marks and warnings on the walls, written by Henry himself- this was a choice the game developers made to tell us that there is the same story happening over and over again. Without change. Everything is inevitable (words like "I always fall" or "Boo" where the jumpscare is, or "I'm sorry, buddy" next to a Boris poster).
Another detail that is quite interesting to me is that in the postcredit scene we hear a girl's voice saying: "Tell me another one, Uncle Joey." This means that the whole game we played was a story told by Joey.
So this is my theory, based off of dozens of other people's theories:
Okay, first we have to get this out of the way: nothing we see in the game is real. Everything is symbolic, nothing is literal. Even the audio logs either only provide us with nothing but hints to solve some puzzles in order to proceed or they speak about things metaphorically. We need to keep this in mind as we look back at everything that has happened.
Joey is using this story as a metaphor for his life and the life of his studio- the Ink Demon is literally his demon that symbolises his thirst for success (that's why Bendy is defeated by "The End" tape- it's literally his end, the end of Joey's career). He's reflecting back on his life choices and openly admitting that he made terrible mistakes, that so many lives were ruined because of him.
We can assume the time loop means that Joey keeps returning to his past over and over again, wishing things were different, but as one of the hidden messages on the wall says: "Reliving the past does not change it.
Now this will get metaphorical- the Ink Machine symbolises the studio, the business, the one thing everyone has to channel all their effort into.
Wally Franks mentions in the first tape we encounter in the game that "they each had to donate something from their work station" and then hinting towards us finding six items we place on a pedestal so we can start the Ink Machine.
This is a metaphor too- donating the items was each and every one of the employees working on one final product, giving something, sacrificing something (and eventually themselves). These items represent each of the workers who contributed to keeping the business going - drawing the cartoons, writing the books, recording the music, manufacturing the toys and keeping the equipment and the building maintained.
To prove that the studio isn't real, just look at its layout- it goes so deep in the ground and sometimes the structure gets ridiculous. Why would the Toy Factory, Attractions Storage or Archives be burried several hundred meters below ground? It just doesn't make sense in the real world. It is made to look surreal.
The difference between the game's artstyle and the realistic look of the final location- Joey Drew's apartment also tells us that we were in some kind of imaginary world.
And yes, many people already said that it obviously isn't reality and that it's either some kind of purgatory, or a dream. Well, maybe it's a bit of both, but not as we initially thought.
This game is so thought through and sophisticated that it made us underestimate every detail in it. Of course, it's hard to tell whether the detail is important or not. On one hand, you have suspicious emphasis on Bacon Soup and on the other hand there is just some easter egg or pop culture reference. Well, maybe even the references also make sense and help us establish the meaning of this franchise.
So the story looks kinda like this:
Joey Drew and Henry Stein started a business together- a successful one. It was around late 1920's (Bendy made a debut in a cartoon titled 'Tombstone Picnic' in 1929). Joey Drew was handling the management and directing, while Henry worked as an animator. It turned out that those two weren't equal though.
Joey was a dreamer, but never achieved his goals on his own. He always found some backs to climb to get what he wanted.
Henry was the one doing all the work. "I give and he takes," says Henry in his tape. He also mentions that he hasn't seen his family for days because he's working so hard.
Henry "leaves" the studio sometime in the early 30's (I'll explain what I mean by "leaves"), and slowly, but surely, the studio falls apart. It turned out that Henry was the one pushing Joey to do the right thing, as Joey says in his final monologue. But then Joey says: "You should've pushed a little harder." What does that mean? It means that as soon as Henry's not around, Joey turns into a greedy man, blinded by success. Or better yet, Henry didn't push enough.
While Henry was around, he created a couple of characters- probably Bendy and Boris, because in the starting years of the studio they were the only ones who appeared on the cartoons. Alice Angel was presumably introduced in 1932 (after Henry left) and the Butcher Gang sometime around 1935.
After Henry left around the year 1930, Joey tried to continue in Henry's work, to "bring the characters back to life" his own way, but it turned out horribly wrong.
He creates the Ink Machine, in other words, a new pace of the studio and therefore everyone's work is channeled to this one particular cause- the machine- the studio. First, Bendy was recreated. But as multiple people, including Joey himself, said in their tapes, there was something wrong with him. Without Henry's input, he was soulless, incomplete, corrupted. Joey realized the characters need a "soul". So to create a live version of Alice Angel, a new character who 'needed a female touch', he found Susie Campbell, a voice actress that was way too attached to Alice Angel. She seemed like a perfect match for the character. But the Alice that emerged from Susie's effort was corrupted, hated by people (this is the corrupted Alice we meet in Chapter 3). Joey then found a replacement- Alison Pendle (she represents the perfect- "resistance" Alice, the one that killed corrupted Alice- therefore Alison ending Susie's career and taking her place). It turned out that she was perfect for the role- she was successful and she was treated nicely, unlike Susie.
The Butcher Gang, who came after Henry left, didn't meet a nice fate either. Their corrupted soulless versions were not welcome by the people and they have been forgotten.
(I watched MatPat's theory a couple hours ago and one thing struck me- one that I never thought about before. Their designs. As MatPat said, they look dismembered, tortured, taken apart and out back together. It seems almost like someone has experimented on them or used them as punching dolls whenever they were furious. I tried to implement this into my interpretation that this is all in Joey's head and somehow I can't think of a good reason why he would see them this way. Be sure to write it down in the comment section if you think of something)
The studio eventually bankrupts and Joey is forced to spend the rest of his life in his moldy apartment, left with no fame, no glory, no friends, no family. Only then he realises what he has been doing to people around him.
It was obvious that under Joey's cruel reign, people working there were unhappy, exhausted and unable to produce cartoons people would like.
As for Boris, I am not completely sure. We can assume Joey tried to remake Boris multiple times. That's why there's so many clones in the game. It seems like the perfect Boris we encounter and is later turned into Brute Boris was a result after Joey found something to make him perfect. Or someone. Maybe Joey used Wally Franks as a model for Boris, which has been a popular theory. After all, Wally and Boris seem to share some key traits.
Tom is obviously based off of Thomas Connor, but I highly doubt that he really is him. In fact, I believe all the characters are not completely realistic versions of their respective bearers - only reflections of their personalities, relationships and their struggles.
The Ink is a symbol for despair and misery the studio has fallen into after years, the way Joey forced his employees so he could achieve his dreams, the Ink eventually claimed them (it's basically a metaphor for burnout).
In the game, the developers hint towards the employees being sacrificed to the machine- and it's not far from truth. Although not to literal machine, the employers were truly sacrificed to Joey's starvation for success, such as Sammy Lawrence, who admits in an audio log that he's working so hard he's starting to see Bendy in his sleep, therefore foreshadowing his own fate ("Few months more of this and I wouldn't be surprised if that grinning demon drove me completely insane"). Or Norman Polk, who was defined by his projector while working for Joey, therefore it would make sense he would be symbolically fused with it.
The Ink Machine is fueled by Ink- it's a direct metaphor for Joey fueling his studio with his employees' despair, misery and depression. He didn't think of anything beyond his own interests and forced everyone to work harder and harder.
However, that showed itself in the final products, hence the corrupted characters.
People like to refer to work environment as clock or a machine, meaning everything works together to serve one mutual purpose. That's the reason I genuinely think the Ink Machine is a symbol for the studio.
Some people didn't meet a horrible fate though- three to be exact. Wally Franks, Allison Pendle and Thomas Connor. These three weren't driven to madness or didn't get burried neck deep into work.
Wally Franks was just a janitor- he himself mentioned that most of the time he didn't even get noticed. Nobody was telling him to sweep faster or polish harder. His humour and easy-going nature also helped him keep his sanity and proved that it's the simple mind that's off the hook.
Alison Pendle did good, she didn't need to work faster. People loved her Alice Angel and Joey was treating her nicely since she got him the fame and money.
Thomas Connor wasn't Joey's employee. He was an employee of Gent- a company that cooperated with and possibly sponsored Joey Drew Studios. He couldn't be forced to work harder, Joey had no power over him. In fact, Thomas might have more power over Joey, as Joey Drew Studios might be relying on his company due to financial difficulty.
Thomas Connor was also the one deemed responsible for constructing the Ink Machine. That probably means that without Gent's help, Joey Drew Studios would probably bankrupt. Making the Ink Machine basically meant Gent was Joey Drew Studio's partner and it was them who were making Joey's dreams a reality.
Thomas's tapes tell us that he doesn't quite like the Ink Machine- what the studio has been producing from the recources Gent has delivered to them.
An audio log published later after releasing Chapter Five tells us this: "It's like banging your head on a rock over and over an over. The first time it hurts to heck. The hundredth time, well...you just don't think much about it. That's what it's like working for mister Joey Drew. At first you feel that bad pain in your gut...that you're doing something very wrong. But when the dust settles and Joey has played his cards, you just learn to go with it. Bit of your soul dies with each pipe you put in." This tells us that first: Even though Thomas doesn't like it, Joey still manages to manipulate him into helping him. And second: "Bit of your soul dies with each pipe you put in." Now, I'm pretty sure by pipes Connor means something like financial support or any kind of help to Joey. He is aware that he's doing something very wrong, but he's pointing out that after doing it several times, "you just don't think much about it".
Years after the bankruptcy Joey reaches out to these three and they respond, their letters are pinned to Joey's corkboard along with some other important letters and documents. It seems that he managed to maintain good relationships with every one of them- the informal language and phrases like "I'll send you another recipe soon" by Alison Pendle (now Connor) prove that.
All the others- Norman Polk, Susie Campbell, Bertrum Piedmont, Lacie Benton, Grant Cohen... they have all been burned out, possibly very much dead (if we look around with the seeing tool in Chapters 2 and 3, we find coffins with all of their names written on them).
The fact that Sammy Lawrence doesn't have his coffin might mean that Sammy is still out there, alive, possibly driven insane. (More like definitely)
The lost ones are all the other employees and people who got involved in Joey's businesses. You can clearly see how lost they are (I mean they're called "The Lost Ones" for a reason), how confused and desperate, they're hurt and vulnerable. We hear them cry and say "When do we go home?", curled into a ball in the corner or beating their head against the wall. They're literally trapped in the studio, unable to get over their past. It just shows how selfish and manipulative Joey really was.
All these images of his former employees keep returning to Joey's head as he grows older- after his business crashed, he starts to become aware of what he has caused- and this haunts him. The Ink Demon haunts him to be precise.
This is where Henry comes to play. As I was saying, Henry was the one pushing Joey to do the right thing. He is a protagonist to this game because he is the one who finally defeats Joey's Demon and sets them all free. Yes, that's right. "He will set us free" is directly referring to Henry setting Joey free- setting his mind free and giving him peace. Where's the catch? Henry's dead.
Remember that postcredit scene? We see a room we can't explore because the cutscene is triggered when we walk into Joey's kitchen. In that room we catch a glimpse of a small version of the Ink Machine.
If you hack into the room, you will find an interesting easter egg. It's a shelf with some newspapers. The headline on top says: "Local Artist Pushed Himself Too Hard, Found Dead at Desk".
Why would Joey keep these if they didn't refer to the death of his former business partner and best friend?
In real life Henry died from overworking himself, like many other employees and Joey knows it's all his fault. He can't turn back time, though he wishes things were different.
So he tells a story- a story where Henry is the hero who saves him and the other employees. A story of how he would like it to end- Henry setting everyone free.
But who does he tell the story to? Well, none other than Henry's daughter. (I'm not really sure about this one, because considering the time the game is happening, Henry would've been in his 50s or 60s. That means his daughter must've been around 20 to 30 years old. At least. Then again, the voice sounds pretty mature, so maybe she doesn't have to be young at all)
Joey now takes care of Henry's family after Henry died. He tells Henry's daughter what a hero her father was and how he believed in the good in Joey until the end.
Now when Henry enters a pentagram-looking- thing drawn by Sammy on the floor at the end of Chapter 1, he passed out and sees three images: The smaller version of the Ink Machine, Bendy the Ink Demon and Joey's wheelchair. Why?
Well let's keep in mind that it's not Henry that sees these images, it's still all in Joey's mind. These three pictures most probably show the three things that follow Joey around everywhere he goes: the vision of his corrupted business that costed too many lives, his Demon that keeps haunting him and some kind of crippling injury or illness that made him strapped to a wheelchair. Could be just old age though.
Maybe Bendy IS Joey, metaphorically, of course. It would make sense that the employees viewed Joey as something they feared, considering how he treated them, just as everyone bewared the Ink Demon in the game. Bendy's throne also sits on the centre of the Ink Machine, we can draw a parallel between this and Joey's overruling in the studio.
Sammy's worshipping of Bendy as Joey wouldn't make much sense, as Sammy mentioned in his logs multiple times that Joey was kinda getting on his nerves pretty often, but it could be just a side effect of him going mad.
Now. Joey Drew's apartment. The most mind-blowing and unexpected part of Chapter 5. It houses many reveling secrets and also clues as to why I think the whole game might be coming out of his fantasy. First, right next to the front door, we can spot exactly six items that we should be familiar with at this point - I hope it's not necessary to say that as Henry, we used these exact items to start the Ink Machine.
Then we move to a big bulletin board in the living room to find some interesting documents and letters, along with Joey's notes.
First thing that came to me were the letters from Wally Franks and Alison Connor. They both share with Joey that they're enjoying their life and have successful careers. They also imply that Joey reached out to them first, possibly to make amends with them.
On the board there is also a note with the familiar pentagram-looking thing drawn on it. "The family fallout shelter" flyer seems out of place for me particularly. There's also a flier for "Little Miracle Repair Service", from which Joey maybe drew inspiration for the Little Miracle Stations from. We can also find a bankruptcy letter, an electricity check (with quite big fees of around $3,000), tickets to Bendy Land along with a photo back from the studio, but also some interesting notes.
There is a doctor appointment at 10:37, a sticky note with 'Phil 2:03', which could be a meeting, or a Bible verse- Philippians 2:3, which goes like this: "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves,"
Now this is too accurate to be a coincidence. I meant it's Joey Drew we're talking about. We already know Joey used his employees to achieve his goals and never hesitated to push them beyond their limit to get what he wanted. He put this verse on his bulletin board to remind himself to act better.
Also, this is not the first time we see religious motives in this game. This could be a main source of inspiration for Sammy's worshipping rituals and religious obsession. But it could be just a meeting with a guy named Phil. In that case, the reason why would Joey want to meet exactly at 2:03 is beyond me.
On another sticky note Joey wrote 'They Can't Be Erased' with the word 'They' scratched out and 'Ink' written instead. Then on another one, a silhouette of Bendy's head is drawn and words 'Down in Bendy's Domain' with an arrow pointing towards the head. The third one is very interesting- it says 'Ink = Life'. The word 'Life' is once again scratched out and 'Death' is written instead of it. I'm sure this was put here to tell us that Joey realized the true nature of all his effort.
Among a lot more notes we have one that has one of Joey's quotes written on it: "Just a Pencil and a Dream!" 'Pencil' and 'Dream' are scratched out again and instead the note reads: "Just a Pen and a Nightmare!" These notes are exactly the proof we need to clarify that he indeed regrets what he did and admits that he made a series of horrible mistakes.
In the living room there's also a drawing desk with numerous concept drawings, showing pieces of alternative storylines of the game. These could be a major hint towards the next game (Bendy and the Dark Revival), possibly, because these were meant to be alternative storylines in the original one. And since it's very likely that BATDR will be happening along the main story, these could be the scenes we might encounter.
Also, we can be sure that the next game will be choice- based, at least a bit.
"You can walk with angels, or cower before demons," says Alice Angel in the BATDR teaser trailer. This means that this time we might get to choose a side... Which would be awesome in my humble opinion.
Now, back to the theory.
The YouTube channel Joey Drew Studios Inc. published several audio tapes that brings the various employees ' past for us to explore. But every one of them reveals most about Joey Drew himself. First one was from none other than the boss. This tape is mainly supposed to get us excited for another Bendy game that is coming in the near future. But it also hints towards the past of the studio and helps us to clarify some parts of the timeline.
When we look at the date when the tape was recorded, we see 10th February 1931. This is around time Henry left the studio. Based on the information that's provided to us in the tape, Joey, now the only owner of the studio, talks about how amazing year 1931 is going to be and ends with an intriguing line:
"At Joey Drew Studios we're going to bring dreams...to life."
This means that shortly after Henry died, he's already planning to build the Ink Machine - that means, he's planning to completely change the objective and pace of the studio.
This tape is proof that Henry indeed left (died) towards the end of the year 1930, because at the start of the following year, Joey realizes he now has the studio to himself - therefore he can do whatever he wants to make his dreams come true.
2nd August 1932 (a year and a half after) Susie Campbell records a message home to her mother. We know that she's not in the studio for very long, because in her audio log in Chapter 2, she mentions that she's only working for Joey for two months - and that she already voices Alice Angel. In this teaser tape she mentions that they're working on a new female character upstairs. Therefore this could be only days or weeks after she started working there as a voice actress.
5th March 1933, we hear Wally Franks being as random as always, but dropping some serious hints. As always. He talks about feet messing up floors (this makes my mind skip to the inky footprints in Chapter 1) for him to clean, but then mentioning that Susie Campbell is the only person who treats him well. Also, not very important to the lore, but really important to establish the employees ' past, he also talks about seeing Susie talking with Sammy, using a line: "If I didn't know better, I'd say there was magic there." Using the word magic is not coincidental at all - it means that not only the ship is real, but a few months later, Sammy Lawrence is already engaging in a romantic relationship with Susie Campbell. We can also assume their relationship ended with Sammy ditching Susie for Alison Pendle. A decent proof is that in her audio log in Chapter 3, her line reads: "When I walked in to the recording booth today, Sammy was there with that...Alison!" She says this with a weird intonation in her voice. Jealousy, maybe? Could be just because this woman stole her role of Alice Angel. But her final breakdown could be caused not only because Alison stole her role, but also because she stole her man. It seems like a long shot, I know. But I have one more proof. While we do errands for Alice Angel, she provides us with bits and pieces of her past. One of them being: "Sammy said I had talent. He was always a good liar. Still, he was once a very handsome man." ' He was always a good liar ' seems like something someone with a broken heart would say. But maybe it wasn't a relationship, more like a crush. It's possible. Anyway, enough about Susie's love life.
Next up is Sammy Lawrence with his tape dated 16th June 1935. This doesn't reveal much besides Joey still pushing his employees to the very limit and that Sammy foreshadows his own fate.
Bertrum Piedmont and his tape come up five years later on 19th May. He also doesn't say much new information, only how Joey Drew is not satisfied with his Bendy Land plans and how Bertie himself views Joey as "the man who can see the island, but could never build the boat himself". It seems like Bertrum has a lot to say about Joey's leadership and attitude. In fact, it is obvious that he doesn't enjoy their collaboration at all.
Thomas Connor and Jack Fain come both in 1943.
Thomas on 13th November talks about working for Joey Drew and how his soul is dying while doing it, just the stuff I already mentioned in previous parts.
And Jack's tape back from 18th November (notice, this is the first time there's a small amount of time between two recordings) only confirms how much of an ass Joey really is.
"Sammy and I even won an award for one of our songs...I heard. Of course it had Mr. Drew's name on the award, but... it's the thought that counts."
This only proves that the people that worked there didn't even get a bit of admiration, not only a single word of gratefulness. Jack Fain also mentions that Joey Drew was meeting with Thomas Connor down in the sewers, planning some secret stuff.
The final tape that showed us the date of title reveal of the next game is a mix of all the lines from the previous tapes. But at the very end, a new voice says:
"How very interesting...such...knowledge..."
The voice sounds like hissing and has an accent. It seems like in the next game we will encounter a new antagonist, sentient and possibly intelligent and dangerous. His voice sounds a bit like Sammy, but the accent is obvious.
Also, besides Joey Drew, almost everyone keeps mentioning Sammy Lawrence, which makes me think that he'll play a big role in the upcoming game. I mean, he has a whole Chapter of the first game dedicated to him. The only characters with this much attention are Alice Angel and the Ink Demon himself.
But what is most interesting...no one, absolutely no one mentions Henry once. Never. Even in the game. Of course, at the end of Chapter 5 Joey's final tape is dedicated to Henry, but think about the rest of the game. It's like he never existed! Maybe Joey forbid mentioning Henry. Maybe his tragic death was too much of a taboo to talk about. Maybe he wasn't real at all...
Think about it. I know I previously said that Henry was Joey's business partner and that he's dead. Well, this isn't necessarily untrue.
Henry (and this is a long shot) may metaphorically be the good side of Joey's character. He might be his conscience - the side of him that pushes him to do the right thing. But eventually this side of him was slowly put aside and Joey's Ink Demon took control.
Henry's final battle with Bendy could symbolise Joey's inner battle - a fight between his good side and bad side - resulting in the good side winning and Joey finally defeating his inner demon, setting his mind free.
"He will set us free" is a phrase that everyone keeps repeating and we initially thought this was some Sammy's religious prophecy. Sammy actually misunderstood the message, as well as we did. And this is part of the story too.
At first, Joey thought that the Ink Demon, his own bad side, that makes him doing bad things, is the right voice to listen to. But eventually he discovers that it really is Henry - his good side - that will truly set him free. Even Sammy's worshipping of Bendy would make sense as Joey would view the Ink Demon as an idol - a fake idol. He knew that to keep his success, he would have to feed the demon.
Remember the Bible verse from Joey's bulletin board? This would also fall into place as Joey would need something to guide him to be a better person. He would seek something that's opposite of what he's been doing.
I don't want to draw any conclusions, but I think this would be a decent explanation for everything. But all of this is mostly a giant conspiracy, nothing hints directly towards this, so we won't consider it in the conclusion.
So, to make everything clear:
Joey Drew was a selfish manipulative backstabbing jerk, who would give anything (even his own people) to achieve his dreams. Even if they were impossible. He eventually leads the studio to bankrupt and only then realises what he has been doing. So he starts reflecting back on his past, reliving it over and over, hoping that someday he'll be able to defeat his demon. (I didn't say he would defeat it. We have to remember that this story keeps repeating, meaning that it probably didn't happen, but Joey keeps wishing it did.)
In the game he presents the characters as caricatures of his employees, emphasizing their traits and turning their main struggles into motives to tell his story.
Susie Campbell was a naïve young voice actress who didn't only fall for Joey's manipulative words, but also for Sammy's bait, concequently losing both her dream role and her love. She immediately made both these things her life, resulting in total breakdown when she ended up with nothing. That ruined her completely, as she fused herself with Alice Angel in her mind, ultimately convincing herself she was Alice Angel.
And though remaining a mystery, her fate was sealed. In the game she is a corrupted version of Alice Angel who desperately wants to fix herself and gain people's love again.
Sammy Lawrence was a hard working songwriter who, despite realising the concequences, kept pushing under Joey's whip until he burned out and became crazy.
Through his character in the game Joey shows us the absurdity of worshipping a demon of greed and crooked dreams, meaning he himself realized how wrong and twisted it really is.
He also seems so desperate to escape his body engulfed by the ink, meaning he was probably once confident in his looks, therefore missing his former body. He hopes Bendy will set him free. (Both versions of Alice Angel, the Projectionist and even the fricking Searchers have five fingers, why does he have four? Was he meant to be a character, but it didn't work out? Why four? This and his overalls make my mind jump to Boris. Was he a failed attempt?)
Wally Franks is the definition of "Started from the bottom, now we're here". He had a humble, yet laid back job at the studio - cleaning. His story has happy end as he gets married, moves to Florida and starts his own successful business.
Joey used him as a model for Boris the Wolf, a loyal companion who is always bouncy and optimistic and is motivated by food (Otherwise I don't know why one of Wally's audio recordings, the one with chocolate cake, would be so important). I wouldn't be so sure about this, as our beloved Boris ends up as Brute Boris and, eventually, Dead Boris, so our Boris clone could be just a... well, an empty clone.
It is possible that since Boris the Wolf used to be Henry's favourite character, Joey used his love for Boris as a mere motivation, rather than addressing the importance of this particular Boris. (A lot of the word Boris, I know.)
Bertrum Piedmont was an amusement park architect, who seems to be gifted with a great deal of egoism and so him fusing himself with his own park ride looks like Joey's caricature of him to me. It would make sense that Joey found Bertrum's obsession with his own creations absurd. Also, the fact that when we encounter Bertrum in Chapter 4, he is already in attack mode, like he's been waiting for the right opportunity to hurt Joey specifically. His motivation is revenge on Joey for hurting his ego. This could have multiple explanations:
1) Betrum had tried to hurt or directly/indirectly attack Joey in the past 2) Joey had suspected Betrum for plotting a revenge against him in the past 3) Joey lives in fear that Bertrum's revenge could still be upon him
His fate is unknown to us, as well as the one of Jack Fain, Lacie Benton, Norman Polk, Grant Cohen (he might have driven himself insane considering discovery of the tape in his office in Chapter 4), Shawn Flynn and others.
We already know what happened to Alison Pendle and Thomas Connor. They got married and live together, both had successful careers and Alison is still in touch with Joey and sends him recipes, which is the ultimate way of showing one's good regards towards someone.
Joey used these two as models for Resistance Alice and Tom - they were also helping to overcome Joey's inner battles - as well as they helped Henry defeat the Ink Demon in the game.
And finally - our protagonist. So Henry Stein was Joey's business partner who in the end became just one of the workers, straining themselves to make Joey's dreams come true. He eventually died from overworking himself and now he only lives in Joey's stories as a hero. A hero who will set them free.
I will now change the subject and return to the topic of the secret messages. We can confidently say that these were not only written by Henry. Yes, most of them were "written" by him, I would dare to say they were more like "thoughts" than physically written messages. Henry wouldn't be able to physically draw a bone into Tom's mouth, or a halo above Alice's head. The messages are also sometimes on places Henry can't get to, like the ceiling, boarded up spaces or blocked by stuff.
And as to why I don't think Henry's thoughts are not the only ones present in the studio, I'll remind once again - we are in Joey's imagination. So it would make sense that Joey is helping Henry through some sort of abstract presence, providing hints and encouragement ("Take the spoon", "It's inside the vault", "The Demon has taken it", "Be kind to people on the way up, because you'll meet the same people on the way down"...)
As to the puzzles, I believe most of the events taking place in the game are merely for plot's sake in Joey's story. After all, this man used to write and direct cartoons.
Also, "He can't be saved" is obviously referring to Boris in Chapter 4, but it could have another meaning - it could also be referring to Joey.
Since we're in a time loop in Joey's mind, it is possible that some of Joey's thoughts might be about giving up on himself. Sometimes a moment of desperation while fighting his inner demon would occur and try to convince him that "he can't be saved".
So there we go, I know this chain of scattered thoughts is a bit inconsistent, but as I said, I'm writing this as my mind goes. I feel like this theory is not completely bulletproof, because so far I've talked about metaphors. It seems logical to me though. Feel free to let me know about any things I missed or forgot.

2019.02.24 13:11 Iphiko Thoughts For The New Bendy Game?

Whoohoo! The original BATIM game may have ended, but Kindly Beast aren't done with our little devil darling yet! Bendy WILL return, and apparently, the new game will be based in the studio we all know and love (or fear)!



So, where and WHEN will the new game happen?
Kindly Beast has said it will not be a prequel OR a sequel, but that Bendy will return. Joey Drew Studios' Youtube channel has recently been releasing audio logs: one from Joey Drew himself, talking about the big changes and secrets getting cooked up in the kitchen, and one from Wally "I'm Outta Here" Franks giving us extra insight on the relashionship between Sammy Lawrence and Susie Campbell (damn it, it's a romantic one!!! But I will NEVER rewrite my Norman x Susie fanfic!!!).
They're both dated 10th February 1931 and 5th March 1933, on the brink/during the Great Depression in America. We also know from various logs around the studio in the original game that Joey had a lot of financial issues, so it would make sense that the 2nd game will take place during this time.
And as for the setting, a logical guess would be the studio, maybe in a big city of some sort.



Gameplay?
For small details hidden around the franchise, it doesn't seem like we will play as Henry Stein, the main protagonist in BATIM, as he has most likely left the studio to spend more time with his growing family.
This new game will apparently be episodic (divided into chapters), so this is my personal theory: each chapter will be a different day at the studio, and we will enter through the front doors every day as a different employee (Wally Franks, Sammy Lawrence, Norman Polk, Susie Campbell...) and play from their point of view.
A lot of these characters have unanswered questions about their former lives, that we might like to discover, such as:






Welp, we can always guess! Until the new teaser is out, this is just a theory!
