It’s Finally Happened 03/03/2011

by Joe

No, not internet. I had a dream about Minecraft last night! Well, it was only part of the dream. Here’s what happened:

I was walking through an open public park when I saw a baby stroller in the distance. I walked towards it and saw that there was a baby in it. No one else was around, so I was concerned that the baby’s parents were being negligent. I looked around for the parents until I found a large family having a picnic BBQ. I walked up to the man in charge of the grill and asked him, “Is that your baby in the stroller over there, alone?”

“Yes, that’s our baby.” he replied.

Shocked, I told him, “You shouldn’t leave your baby unattended like that. Go get him.”

He seemed a little offended and replied, “No, that’s how we raise our child. Don’t tell us how to be parents. Go away.”

I didn’t argue and just walked straight to the park ranger’s cabin. I walked in and there he was… Clint Eastwood, the park ranger. He was in his Unforgiven-esque Western clothes and looking badass and pissed. I told him about the negligent parents and he just scoffed at me and walked into his office and closed the door.

Feeling defeated and helpless, I walked to the computer that was in the cabin and started playing Minecraft. Yup, Minecraft of all things. I must’ve been playing for a few minutes and as I was slaying a Minecraft spider, Clint Eastwood bursted out of his office on horseback and galloped towards the lone baby’s family. In mid-stride, he yelled out “Derrick!” (or something) and another park ranger (presumably his sidekick) bursted out of the cabin behind Clint. Together, they rode into the distance and then I woke up.

I lay in bed hoping that they saved the baby and they taught the family a lesson that they’d never forget.

Weird, huh? :D

Anyways, enjoy Scene 36 – “My Pet Monster”!

Oh oh… Dominick is still alive! Crap.

haha, shooting through the floor trick? nice. :D
I wonder what will become of the elder. Probably a Chekhov’s gunman though.

PolarWarrior, Destroyer of Yukon economies on March 3, 2011 at 11:47 am

I just started playing Minecraft. Maybe /I’ll/ get a dream soon :D

Yoinkinator on March 3, 2011 at 11:52 am

@Yoinkinator – It’s inevitable! :D

Joe on March 3, 2011 at 11:53 am

Whoa, the story just took one sharp turn! Nice job so far. @Chillingsworth Of course Dominick is still alive. Losing blood isn’t enough to kill a vampire. (I’m not sure if they can die of starvation, but I imagine it takes quite a bit of it if they can). Still, I don’t think he’s much of a threat at this point. He will either take his own life or be hunted by the rest of his fair weather followers.

Now I got the theme song from the old cartoon ‘My Pet Monster’ stuck in my head…

Draconita on March 3, 2011 at 12:09 pm

Did you made the whole light-weakness display just now to counter the comments previously said about Zompyres being inmune to light?????
I wonder if they’ll take the elder to Doc… He’d have a good time disecting him, and the elder wouldn’t mind if they promised to kill him now that he’s a monster…

@Draconita – Loved that show! Glad someone got the reference! :D
@NeoPhantom – Haha, nope, just a coincidence!

momo on March 3, 2011 at 1:59 pm

once i had a dream that i was one of the creeper mobs in minecraft and there was a miner named steve trying to kill me, so i fled into a cave system and gathered a group of creepers to help me kill him, and when we exited the cave system, there was a army of miners surrounding the cave, so we all blew up and my creeper spirit floated around following the miners and watched as they killed the creeper queen and i could do nothing to stop them, then a miner shot a arrow through my spirit and i woke up

i feel sorry for creepers now, we kill them and they are just defending their homes

Lol collecting bullets when joe is not around such suicide

good episode. The colony need to develop and subsequently arm themselves with some sort of UV gun, to make vampires and zompires wither. maybe an underbarrel rifle attachment, with some sort of capacitor, so that it goes off like a camera flash? or even better, some sort of ultraviolet Sun Grenade? that’d blow all sorts of nasty creatures into a delightfully large amount of tiny pieces. Maybe Bernie could make some of this stuff? I dunno :)

MorganrBan on March 3, 2011 at 9:02 pm

WOOT Hurrah for the gun crazy Jake and scruffleback for making another appearance. But I should have figured that Cross was a puppet as some of you others said in the past, although i did kind of laugh at Cross and his ever so growing stupidity.

sykes on March 3, 2011 at 10:59 pm

I’m thinking that Scrufflebeck is like a super badass Bulbasaur. AWESOME!!!

Mariano on March 3, 2011 at 11:06 pm

Of course, the real hero of The Pocalypse is always going to be Scrufflebeck.
Without him, they’d be stuck in a dark basement with a horde of vampires waiting for night-time!

Snerky on March 3, 2011 at 11:18 pm

“You just made it to the top of my “People to Kill” list! ”
I kinda like Andy. I suspect he’s one of the good guys.

Zombie on March 4, 2011 at 12:42 am

@MorganrBan Ever play Thief:Deadly Shadows? The flashbang was the only way quick way to kill zombies. Perhaps tried and true devices like flashbang grenades could work? Though sun grenades sound pretty badass.

kim jo-el on March 4, 2011 at 2:47 am

@MorganrBan The sun grenade thing was actually a thing in the second Blade movie, along with lights that were as powerful as suns so that they could keep vampires back

@Snerky Of course Scrufflebeck is the real hero, he’s unstoppable and badassto the max

SpiritOfAdventure on March 4, 2011 at 7:27 am

Scrufflebeck just gets cooler every day!!

Timmy HarleQuin on March 4, 2011 at 8:15 am

i got just got a dog i wanted to call it scrufflebeck but guess what. the dog is a female. :/. i ended up calling here mimz

mikelord356 on March 5, 2011 at 8:32 am

@spiritofadventure and @kim jo-el: sounds interesting, i’ll have to look those up.

MorganrBan on March 5, 2011 at 11:16 am

Hold on a second…I spot a discontinuity/plot armor!

Remember how Andy could kill soldiers by destroying their minds? Why didn’t he do that to Jake? Surely telepathy isn’t affected by sunlight.

PolarWarrior, Destroyer of Yukon economies on March 5, 2011 at 1:01 pm

So the moral of the story is that playing Minecraft will make movie stars on horseback solve your neighborhood’s social problems.
