Re: THREAD: Ideas, suggestions, etc...


Yes the show is popular because it's only show like it, there is no others because the major broadcasters wouldn't won’t to risk moral uproar from the public. It resides on Living TV, a satellite channel where the viewers are either 'Big Gay Al Camp' or 'Female Middle Class British'. For mediumship and pseudo-spirituality this is the channel of choice. Shows range from Queer Eye for the Sraight Guy, Will & Grace to other shows like Most Haunted, one called Psychic Detective, where a Medium tries to solves Murders from the past apparently using his spirit guide for help. There are also a lot of those lamo makeover shows that women love so much etc.. I think you get the idea. As well as that there's also a bunch of ****ty TV movies, like one where a Dingo steals this woman's baby... Bar Derek and Most Haunted the channel is pretty crappy. BTW, The most Haunted Live show was Derek's last show! Where am I gonna get my laughs now?!

The popularity of shows like Most Haunted and its stars were recently spoofed in a BBC3 show worth checking out, called Shirley Ghostman. Do a search on that!

Re: THREAD: Ideas, suggestions, etc...


Living TV sounds like some sort of hybrid between the Lifetime Channel(network for women, horrible movies, Will and Grace) and the most vile A&E Network(Arts and Entertainment, I think they own the Travel Channel, I know that they own the Biography Channel which is essentially a shamelessly exploitive tabloid, the main network is the home of countless reality shows which are totally exploitational, I also theorize that they own Living TV).

I doubt that we've seen the last of Derik, unless he dies or something. He's probably got a sweet deal to do something next season. !@#$, maybe he'll come to America.

Psychic Detective sounds all to familiar. It's probably on somewhere in America.

In the meantime, somebody's gotta do something about that freakin dingo.

[sign in to see URL] like the Biography channel, if that's the same one we get here in the UK. I'm sure it is, although most of the shows have been re-narrated to be more British.

-----

Anyway, I have a brand new idea for our next truth in lies story.

The Truth In Lies 3: Pike & Okra’s Cult Madness
After months of harassment by the authorities, a cult headed by the reverend David Pike ships off to Mexico where they hope to escape from the reality of western life. The cult nicknamed 'the shellsuit cult,' or 'the shellsuit temple' by the press started when Pike, along with his spirit medium friend Derik Okra escaped from the United Kingdom in connection with the attempted murder of Tony Blair, evading arrest. In October 2005, following a major disaster in a small town hit by a hurracane, Pike and Okra move in. While there, the town’s people begin to follow Pike's bizarre theories on who caused the hurricane. Many thought it was an act of god, however Pike, a well known conspiracy theorist blamed the illuminati. Soon after, Pike set up a church with money provided by the local folks and with a 1000-strong following, the rational people burnt it down. In turn, Pike, Okra and their followers moved on, away from civilization itself. The shellsuit cult moved Pikestown, Mexico. The tension is rising and with outside interest from all over the world some believe Pike may go mad.

Re: THREAD: Ideas, suggestions, etc...


Now that you mention it, I've got my idea for the next Truth In Lies 2 post. I'd like to do two of them, actually. The first is MY return to the story, which sets up the end for Pike and Okra in the second post.

About TIL3: what if the Undignified Duo instead decides to go to Mexico or the South US after TIL2(for a number of good reasons)? What if the two baboons JOIN a cult? That plot twist fits nicely with Pike's paranoid exhuberance. I imagine Okra fitting in as well, and perhaps helping the cult leader keep the drones in line.

I agree there should more of a pretext than a bunch of angry local people who burnt down Pike's Church. Maybe Fergal's twin brother Shamus is out for revenge for his brother’s death on the underground and seeks to kill Pike and Okra. And when Shamus is seen snooping around the disaster hit town where Pike has built his church, Pike torches it. He then blames the burning of the church on the illuminati, reptillians, freemasons and all that he deems evil. The cult followers believe him and so ship off to Mexico with him. And with the Land that Okra buys with his Nazi gold it becomes Pikestown. The town is run by the cults Leader, Pike and his deputy Okra. Also keeping order are two baboons that have been trained by Okra to be as ruthless as SS officers. There also a few of Pikes fanboys who sit in watchtowers guarding the town from outsiders and watching over the followers. The town is a cross between Jonestown and a concentration camp, where the followers are hypnotised by Pikes words and have full belief in him, yet are forced to work in workcamps to pay for Pike and Okra's lavish lifestyle. All the followers are seen in turquoise shell-suits, this is their uniform and an important rule. If say a follower is seen without the shell-suit top when it is a boiling hot day and is then seen by Pike or Okra, the follower is then shot, or the baboons set upon this person, beating him/her to death. Keeping the followers in line like this, and feeding them poorly, as well as depriving them of sleep causes tension, and their is a fear by Pike of an uprising. With this controversy of poor conditions and murder the media then get involved. As well as that Pike believes that Fergal's twin brother Shamus has infiltrated the town hiding under the guise of someone else. All this in Pike and Okra's own town brings madness, and some on the outside fear the pair will do something terrible to the followers who they are losing trust in.

In a few moments, Pike and Okra will have ample reasons to flee civilized country.

How about this: the boys flee, and by chance fall in with someone else's cult. Okra and Pike soon take over the cult. Unfortunately for the boys, everyone with a grudge will find them. They will soon find out how many bodies will fit in the freezer, or they will dragged back to England to be tried as domestic terrorists.

The cult that they join in Mexico is the Cult of Phoney Celebrity Photos.

Well?

[sign in to see URL]'s all good but I don't understand the cult, the cult their supposed to take over. You lost me there. Cult of Phoney Celebrity Photos - please explain.
  emoticon sorry for my total and utter ignorance.
Anyways, we can use both our ideas and dwell them into one and then i'll start the roleplay off with the usual graphics and updated info and whatnot. Just as I did at the start of TIL2.
---Derrik should have a more dominant role in this one I feel, maybe he could be the one pulling the strings while Dave is in his state of madness. In TIL3 we see the sinister figure that is Derrik Okra and Dave Pike, the fragile loon, whose loosing his grip on reality. Everyone of the cult follower's will worship Pike, but Okra despises them, venting his anger and frustration on anyone who gets in his way.--

Yes, yes. I think you've got it. Now let me think about this cult...

As you may have noticed, I haven't thought out this cult thing at all. However we must remember to use the phoney celeb photo folks at some point.

Anyways, let's make the cult site on of the American towns affected by the hurricane. This means that our cult people would be living in trailers. After the storm, too. Imagine what happens to semi-regular folk when they are totally disconnected from the outside world. It's like Animal Farm only with rednecks. Fewer animals. So this wouldn't be an organized cult at all, but instead a group of folks severed from the ample busom(sp?) of America. These people would spend their time waiting for relief efforts, such as the National Guard or the Red Cross(I have in mind a little parody of these guys). The townfolk/countryfolk would be ripe material for any sort of strong ideology, be it anti-government, pro-lizard, or what-not. Perhaps a few folks have stepped forward already, spewing homemade rhetoric about all sorts of topics.

Pike and Okra decide that hurricane-ravaged America would be a great place to hide for a while. It would also yield excellent test subjects for Okra, who has decided to master the science of Religious Fatalities(he feels that this would help his television show, in terms of mauling the extras and so forth).

One last point-I much prefer the lighter tone of TL1 as opposed to TL2. I wrestled with the topic of 7/7 in every post. I don't mind that, but it was often gut-wrenching. I would say that there is more concept and structure in TL2, and that is wonderful. But, really, TL1 was a joy to work on. I loved helping to seed those awful conspiracies, like "why the night sky was built by retailers(Jews didn't get the memo)" which of course contradicted "the Reptillians want us to sleep".

Ho, ho, ho to you Mike. Merry Holidays or whatever you PC Americans call it nowadays. You see that is why terrorists attack your country and troops because they're constantly horrified by the sight of Santa Claus and christmas Trees. The sight of a Santa Claus makes them especially very, very angry. emoticon

Anyways, sorry for my no-show a couple of weeks ago although I will say that I did start TIL3 and got quite into it. Then Movies came along. I don't usually play games but this one was like my heroin for a week and a bit. Please avoid it if you can emoticon Anyways, I will continue to add to what I've already written after christmas and post it sometime soon. In what I've already written Pike and Okra are already at the "Camp," and I say camp because it is very much like that, a concentration camp that being btw. egads, hey? emoticon There are mexicans employed as guards , my so-called Pike vulnerables living sqalid barns while Pike and Okra live in luxury, a shower (gassing) chamber, one escapees interview on the Fox News channel which is later hijacked by a promo for the Pikestown camp hosted by Pike, the vicious murder of a 'lazy' man by John & Yoko (Derrik's Baboons), the darker side of Derrik Okra (who's claims to be in contact Dr Joseph Mengale through Margot) and Hugo Tito, who risides inside the camps TV studio, where he and Pike host a live evangelical show for the alternative ideas of MR Pike, fooling stupid people into handing over their hard earned money. And that's it so far. Nearly done.
There'll be a lot creatively which you'll be able to do within this camp, which I hope should help in each of our posts. Whereas before we weren't so confined.
One thing that may be worth doing is adding a different perspective to this story by playing as a couple of the Pike supporters (morelike captives) between every few posts.

I'll take into account your ideas so don't [sign in to see URL] I'm agreed on the the using of the formula (?) of the 'conspiracies' such as the ones in TIL1, which will be something we'll both have to use.
