June 19: Five-Second SAW
 
Preparations for the 10th-anniversary event are in full swing (it starts on the 24th -- be here!). In the meantime, since the new stuff is being saved, I'm going to post a few things that are slightly used. Now and then over the past year, I wrote bits and pieces that couldn't go on 5M.net yet; instead I posted them at my LJ and such. Now that the anime event is over, I can bring them here.

Remember Five-Second Voyager? It was the '05 April Fool's event; there's a summary on the <a href="../features">Features page</a>. I've always said I might come back to that, and last year I got just the right inspiration. This time the target is a horror series which is surprisingly intelligent, but has developed certain clichés.

<a href="../movies/saw.html"><b>Five-Second <i>SAW</i></b></a>. Read or not? Make your choice.

(Those who read this on my LJ will find that VI is covered now. And by the way, I don't <i>recommend</i> these movies per se. I love the mind games, but watching Jigsaw's traps play out is not fun, and takes a strong stomach. Don't show your six-year-old and then blame me.)

Another event? Would anyone mind if I wander around aimlessly for a bit and massage my temples?

;)

Ten years already? My how time flies.

I can't comment on the fiver; I'm not one for horror movies.

My husband and brother have watched the <i>Saw</i> movies and had similar comments: surprisingly intelligent for horror flicks, the first three (I think) fit together really well as an actual story, lord no these are not for anyone with a weak stomach.

Your fivers actually capture that really well! 8)

Heh, I remember this. Never seen the movies but it's funny all the same.
