I was expecting that too, though those are some seriously creepy pictures. Poor bastard was out of his mind, like Konstein up there. Never bow the the will of NEDM upvoters.

5d for teaching me something. i agree with those other chaps, art is good, and nedm was expected, yet resisted. by the time i heard the loop in the music i knew there was not going to be a happy cat popping out to the anydee-emme tune.
July 31st, 2006

Like everyone, I expected NEDM.
July 31st, 2006

July 31st, 2006

LOL, I started typing the phrase "I was totally expecting a screamer" accidentally into the Find bar of Firefox... and I found a comment that started that way. You should put "not a screamer, not NEDM" somehow, because this is creepy
July 31st, 2006

I'd rather have it be NEDM than a screamer.
July 31st, 2006

This is.... fantastic.... Also, f*cking creepy with the sound. Who knows how many schizos are hanging around in here.... This is truly a descent into cat madness... I'm gon' hav' nightmare cuz of that music loop...*****&*FAV*

Messed up, on a similar note, read all my comments since my first to see basically the same thing. One more thing, the music, perfect except where it loops could be cleaned up.

Not a screamer, and thank God it wasn't an NEDM. I remember reading about this guy in my psychology book... he was nuts. Also, don't anyone confuse schizophrenia with multiple-personality disorder, like people often do. They are vastly differing ailments.

Resisted temptation to put in NEDM = WIN. :)
(0)
Eh... the music it made it eery, but the with the cats, you have to be a little paranoid for them to be scary. They just looked real excited, like if Happy Cat was strung out on crack. Still an interesting tidbit of observation. I'm sure someone will make an NEDM parody soon enough.

No NEDM for 5. Fascinating and creepy, though one of the earlier ones before he totally lost it was the creepiest. (NEDM has lost the element of surprise that made it work for me. Hardly anyone even bothers with that anymore.)

The red sneaking kitty is the creepiest...this would've been awesome as a screamer, but I'm glad it wasn't.

seems consitently bonkers to me although the fractalistic cats at the end did force me to look it up...seems very odd for someone in the early part of the 20th century
