The WishesNetwork EAS scenarios that sucked.


Note: This was originally going to be out on 10 Jan 2020, however, the news of Neil Peart's death kinda gummed to works here. 

As some of you would know, I had a two-and-a-half-year run doing EAS scenarios on YouTube. In my first half-year, I refer it to season one. Then the following two years as season 2 and 3. Season ones EAS vids were mostly short, not going past the 10-minute mark. It wasn't until Power Failure / Prison Break where I made them long-form. In today's blog posting, we (or actually just I) we'll discuss those piss-poor EAS scenarios I made.

NORAD System Malfunction (season one)

As of 9 January 2020, this one has surpassed 1,200 views and the number of thumbs downs is quite close to the number of thumb ups. With this one, I tried to be serious while being funny at the end, one commenter said my attempt at being funny sucked and I have to agree. And this scenario, to automated missile silos, launches missiles due to a computer malfunction at NORAD. The Department of Defense sends F-16s to shoot missiles at the missiles from the launch facilities and destroying them. The mission is successful and the EAS voice says you can change your underwear now. I received a few comments that what happens in the scenario isn't realistic. In conclusion, this one doesn't get the WishesNetwork stamp of approval.


Weeds Season 3 Finale (season two)

One of the things I wanted to do was that each last scenario of a season would be a flow blown comedy scenario. I did that with Soundboard Hack at the end of season one. I'm a big fan of the now-defunct show Weeds that ran from 2005 to 2012. I, trying to be funny again, decided to go for a scenario involving weeds. This one is based in 2007 and it features the late father of Rod Cambridge. Realistically, I took Rod's voice and knocked the pitch down. It also had audio clips of season 3, including Kevin Nealon playing the banjo. I voiced Theo Gilly who sounds like a damn moron. What a lot of folks were expecting part 3 of The Toxic Spill / Zombies scenario, in which I put that out a month later. Another bummer for this scenario was when I was about finished with it, the Paradise Fire happened. Perhaps I shouldn't have put this one out. People ain't digging this one, it has less than a thousand views as of this blog posting.


Great Lakes Bomber (season three)

New Year's Day 2019 was supposed to start with Toxic Spill / Zombies 3, but I put it out on 20th December 2018 as a Christmas gift. Great Lakes Bomber was my attempt to make an EAS scenario combined with an FBI Files type deal, and boy, I didn't do too good with this. This one features quite a few phone calls and an interrogation scene in audio-only where I play the suspect getting pistol-whipped by a female character voiced by a computer. I also provide the voice of a female character and I do a piss-poor job of that too. I was working on this beginning in February 2019 and it took a little too long due to some events going on in April / May of that year. Perhaps I should have tossed this one into the trash.
