"N.E.D.M" (Not Even Doom Music) was the most well known video for this. It was online when YT wasn't even a real thing, rather it was on YTMNDPeople who film themselves torturing small animals (mutilating them, stepping on them, putting them in a microwave) and put it on Youtube
I was thinking about Youtube's early years, when content wasn't moderated as closely as now, but now that I re-read myself, I see that my statement is innacurate :/ Thanks for the clarification!i dont think these types of videos would fly on youtube so you'd have to come up with some dark web shit to make this work
Good grief, I knew I'd have no choice but to delve into some real horror during my research, but I kinda hoped I wouldn't find something like this. Still, I looked around for articles concerning NEDM, it's good to have some concrete examples instead of relying on urban legends.

I just got past the first page, and will read the rest tonight so I can give some proper constructive criticism.So I was planning on writing a book about Mermen and Mermaids-or Merhumans. Merhumans can frequent the sea and our world. But I went only so far as Chapter One before stopping. I lost confidence in my writing and I was busy with work.
I don't know if I should continue. I don't want to write a pile of shit. and I definitely don't want to be another Norman Boutin. Please tell me what you think and what I can do to improve it
Thank youI just got past the first page, and will read the rest tonight so I can give some proper constructive criticism.
So far, my only complaint is that the dialogue is kind of confusing in that there are multiple characters speaking per paragraph- my English teacher used to drill it into us that we should only have one character speak per paragraph, and only because it's easier to follow whose speaking.
Other than that, your writing isn't too shabby. I like that you manage to be quite descriptive while using simple language (I'm biased though as I hate purple prose with a passion).
I've said it in another thread, so I'll repeat it here: it's okay for the first draft to not be up to par. Once you're done the story you can always go back and edit it.
I rated it autistic, but I genuinely love this. More. MORE!This wonderfully awful idea came to me recently...
Elmo: James Woods, Elmo wants to know why Mr. Trump doesn't like those "undocumented people".
James Woods: Think of it this way Elmo: Let's say there's a stand selling fresh apple pies.
Elmo: Oh boy!
James Woods: And you managed to save enough pocket money and sit through a long line to get one. Just when you're about to get one, someone else rushes in, cuts in front of you and demands a pie; not caring they they didn't bother to bring any money with them. How would take make you feel?
Elmo: That would make Elmo sad.
James Wood: That's how a lot of us feel when people get into the country illegally.
Elmo: Elmo thinks if you're going to get something, it should be fairly and honestly.
James Woods: Now you got it.
Elmo: (Goes over to hug him.) Let's build that wall.
Really, really late here, but, uh. Rather prophetic.This semester, I've been working on a novel that I started in freshman year and only began revisiting in junior year. I told my professor that my goals were for a wordcount of 80,000~. He said I wouldn't be able to do that in just one semester. I'm at 77,000 right now.
The secret is giving your protagonist a sidekick who really wants to go on a killing spree.
I don't think that's necessarily a flaw. If you can wrap up your stories in 39,000 words then just write 39,000 words, no need to bloat it if you've said everything you had to. If you really want an easy way to buff up the word count, I would say that you would have to add more conflict to your stories to extend them before you reach the ending or add a larger cast of characters for you to explore. But again, I'm of the mindset that if you've said everything you need to, there's no issue writing with lower word counts. With how short attention spans are these days, that might actually be a positive quality.I need some help with how to get around my novels winding themselves up at the 39,000 word mark. Every time I set out to write a 88,000 (Ideal debut novel range) the story wraps up at the 39,000 word mark. I've tried doing a novel in stories thing where all three novels tie together, but when I do that the tie in stories are even shorter and I usually fall about five to ten thousand short of 88,000 which is a death sentence. I have thought about trying to write Middle Grade Books but the last time I attempted it I found that the agents that wanted it either wanted it written by an established author or weren't interested in Vampire Bulldozers duking it out with Zombie Portajohns
