lol

Hilarious... And slightly disturbing;-)

Also, I'm pleasantly pleased that you managed to get it uploaded at exactly midnight:)

Lo, blessed are our ears for they have heard;

Yea, blessed are our eyes for they have seen:

Let the thunder break on man and beast and bird

And the lightning. It is something to have been.

Peter's picture

Yes

Well it was already uploaded, but an automatic process was supposed to check and publish it some time after midnight. Usually it doesn’t get around to it for 10 or 15 minutes, but this time Malex poked it, manually running it a few minutes early early. ;)

I’m very glad to hear you enjoyed it! XD

This also of course means that I’ll be publishing a new Contradictionary every Wednesday. :) We now have three weekly productions.

Yay!

I'm looking forward to seeing how it develops!

hahaha!

That is one SCARY alarm clock!! XD That's really funny! (this coming from the one who started a math forum to get help!

Praise the Lord! Hallelu!

So, the surprise...

So here it is, ladies and menfolk. Contradictionary!

I hope to write a little piece about it later on, but simply put, Contradictionary is a brand-new weekly webcomic which we have now officially launched.

This means that the Malex Media Network® now has three weekly shows running concurrently for the first time. (Excluding, of course, the reruns of Malex and Icepunk that we did from 2006-2007.)

I am quite excited for two reasons:

1) I've seen the first dozen or so Contradictionary episodes, and they're pretty hilarious.

2) This is a major component to my “Plan” which will be necessary to keep the site running. More new content! Make it good! Make it funny! Make people love it! :-D

I know one little episode of a one-panel ’toon (no matter how hilarious) isn't going to get anybody whipped up into a frenzy or anything. But try to catch the grander vision here! It's grand. :)

grander vision...

So will it end up as a big thing in the end?

I hope you get what I'm trying to say... 0_0

Praise the Lord! Hallelu!

And you are the sole producer of two of them...Do you really have time for school??? :-J

Hey! Something ELSE is new!!!!!!!! (unless I'm incredibly unobservant....which is completely possible) We now have "My recent posts"!!!

lol it took me a minute to get "Contradictionary" I thought..."ok dictionary. that's cool but wait! there's a "contra" at the beginning....ooooh it's TWO WORDS! contradiction and dictionary!!" You are BRILLIANT, Quartz!!

oh and Himself? What is wrong with my staying up till midnight? I'm wide-awake today and can probably sleep in tomorrow. It would be a bigger problem if I had my cousins here today because I would probably yell at them :-\ :-(| X-|

I could be a lot less mature and say "YOU did it so why can't I?" lol but I won't because there is no argument in that, seeing as how you're...3 years older than I am. (ssh!! I counted on my fingers!!shh!! XD )

Praise the Lord! Hallelu!

Another question! then I have to get to school

Will you post a direct link to their forum in the top right corner?

Praise the Lord! Hallelu!

lol!

I like the way the guy is sweating. Like the clock is out to get him. It may pounce at any moment.

Everything looks perfect from far away.

Your wish is my command!

“Arrogance is bliss! Or is that ignorance? Either way, I win!”

*lol*

It was a real question as in "are you going to?"

:D but it doesn't matter, since it's there anyway :D

REALLY?? Will you get me a bushel of strawberries and 2 gal of ice cream? lol

Praise the Lord! Hallelu!

Laughing so hard!!!

Quartz! That's hysterical. Is he or is he not accustomed to the presence of the clock?

Gnnb is right, Quartz. You seem to be doing an awful lot of work here.

We should take our comfort from God's word, not from the circumstances of our lives.

Peter's picture

Hehe

Thank you everyone, I’m glad you like it! :D

don't get it either. though i have some friends who might enjoy the mathedy.

i have to agree with crazy and lilly...

I really don't get it at all...

A lie would have no sense unless the truth were felt as dangerous.

Alex's picture

*shrugs*

It's not that profound or anything, just funny.

Maybe this will help:

1) None of the numbers on the clock can be used to represent real quantities. They are all non-real or imaginary.

2) Timby is clearly terrified… Just how long has be been laying there? How much longer until the night ends?

3) I used to feel exactly like that when I struggled with insomnia, so I can relate to it, therefore it's funny.

But, I guess if a joke has to be explained it won't be funny. Don't worry, future Contradictionaries are funnier. :)

ttyl!

“Arrogance is bliss! Or is that ignorance? Either way, I win!”

*pats Malex and Quartz on the back*

I thought it was pretty funny, so don't be discouraged! It was an amazing surprise and I'm looking forward to the next one!

Quartz, I truly thought it was a scream. I laughed a lot over it.

heh...

to me the person looked like LRRS....i don't know why....maybe he's having nightmares about puppets.....*shrugs*

God gave us music, that we might pray without words

*lol*

Maybe… :D

Thanks a lot, SangMing!

Hm

It's very interesting; I look forward to the rest. Well done Quartz and Malex

Frankly though, I was hoping it was a video project (like PM or something) *shrugs*

SCI-EENNNNCE!!!! @_@ - Dr. Insano

Hey! The “Plan” is supposed to be top-secret!

"PM" ?? "top secret"?? hmmmmm :-D

Alex's picture

Nah

PM isn't top-secret, the “Plan” is.

PM is just a video project a bunch of us worked on last summer. I had entertained the thought of publishing it here on the site, but it didn't end up exactly meeting my standards of quality.

That is to say, it was very very good, but it couldn't quite shake the dreaded “bunch of kids running around being goofy” vibe.

Maybe next time…?

Alex Markley

“Arrogance is bliss! Or is that ignorance? Either way, I win!”

oh.

:( And I thought I had a clue. *sigh*

“bunch of kids running around being goofy”

That sounds incredibly close to "FBDie" and "The movie yet to be named" *whimpers and hides face* I hope none of you, with the SINGLE exception of Himself, have ever seen either of those movies. To those who HAVE seen one or both...I don't think any of you have, except the afore-mentioned person. :-J

*shudders with memory of making the movies* :-(| X-|

Praise the Lord! Hallelu!

I don't care what the devil's gonna do!

Himself's picture

Lol!!!

The *one without a name* was so-so, but I still think FBDie was terrific... You used some really interesting camera angles and effects. It degenerates significantly at the end, but that's only because you tried to be a little overambitious (hand-to-hand combat is hard to fake, I would imagine). And I must admit the "story" (such as it is) is mostly just an excuse for lots of mildly gory gunplay. But hey, most Hollywood action movies nowadays are like that anyway, right?

;-)

Oh, and Malex might have been hinting at part of The Plan (that sounds really dystopian scifi-ish to me) earlier... While it isn't PM, the Plan may involve a film project in the future. So don't despair! ;-)

Lo, blessed are our ears for they have heard;

Yea, blessed are our eyes for they have seen:

Let the thunder break on man and beast and bird

And the lightning. It is something to have been.

*groans*

What are you talking about?! I died in both of them; they were awful!!!!!

The "terrific-ness" of FBDie was because Belac C. was filming it an he does really good videoing, like he did a lego movie called "The Wild West" and put it on YouTube. It's about 10 minutes long and it's really good.

It probably would've been better, but we were running out of time. (long story: My oldest brother was going to BNYC at Cedarville University in...2005? I don't remember. Anyway, we have friends that lived in Cedarville so we stayed there a few days so we could watch my brother (he was in Bible Quizzing) and not drive for two hours (round trip) every day. And we were watching some of the older movies that the C's had made and we got the idea to make one. That's how FBDie originated...and so BNYC (Brethren National Youth Conference) like a few days after we did the movie.)

I think we actually shot it all in one day... By the way, the "mildly gory gunplay" is not NEARLY as violent as it sounds. While it comes down to hand-to-hand combat, we used fake, awful-tasting blood. *ew*

C'mon... We used plastic guns and fake blood. and duct tape. XD ooooh man........

What story? *lol* The "mildly gory gunplay" is not NEARLY as violent as it sounds. While it comes down to hand-to-hand combat, we used fake, awful-tasting-too-sugary blood. *ew*

If I had my way, no one would ever ever EVER see FBDie or the *one without a name*

*sobbing*: we didn't even have any script!

***gnnb94 weeps for her stupid lines

the *one without a name* is a different story.... *weeps* can I NEVER play a part in a movie and LIVE???

XD

*sigh* oh well...Hey, at least I died a somewhat *dignified* death in the *one w/o a name* *snuckles*

Praise the Lord! Hallelu!

I don't care what the devil's gonna do!

*snuckles*??? ;-)

That's why I said "mildly gory" instead of "bloody death chainsaw spatter internal organ rupture gory" XD

Lo, blessed are our ears for they have heard;

Yea, blessed are our eyes for they have seen:

hehehehe

BLOODY DEATH CHAINSAW SPATTER INTERNAL ORGAN RUPTURE GORY!?!??!?!???!?!??!???!?! XD XD don't worry, there's NONE of that in the movie

*snuckles*...you know how I snort when I laugh. Well I didn't want to put "Snort" cuz that would sound like the thing in the book "Are you my mother?" and "chuckles" is to original so I put *snuckles!!*

XD

Praise the Lord! Hallelu!

Is insulted! ;)

Prince Melvin is awesome. And actually i was really hoping it would get up on the site since alot of my family in other states would like to see it. Not only my family either, Mariel7's family, Dragon's, I'd like to be able to show a friend in Connecticut....

Also, I helped write Prince Melvin. There was alot of thought put into that! <.< >.> and alot of rootbeer

I'd rather waltz than just walk through the forest- Owl City

*lol*

no, Lilly, I was referring to FBDie :@

mm I love rootbeer! lol

I meant that comment toward Malex who made fun of all our hard work last year :-P

And his own, he got his hand pretty well beaten up and he had to wear that robe outside in the middle of summer X-| And had to put up with all of us for a week

Good times, good times.

I didn't mean to make fun. It was intended as more of an objective statement. We're not pros, and we're not fooling anybody with PM. ;) (And, by the way, “bunch of kids running around being goofy” includes me…)

Ais might post it on Youtube, if she doesn't find anywhere else. Or someone could lend you one of the DVD's

Hey I just noticed that we have the same # of comments on Malex's blog post (Everybody excited yet?) and the actual surprise!

Unfortunately, I just killed it...... XD

Yes, but...

In killing it, though, you made the 42nd comment, thus making the total number equal to the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything!

Of course, I just killed that :-)
