Haven't slept since I found that video on my camera.  Know I have to sleep sometime, but I just haven't been able too.  I mean... technically, nothings changed.  Whatever happened on that video happened a month ago and I just wasn't aware of it.  Of course, now that I know, I'm thinking about it constantly and that's making things worse.

Tried to get it out of my head by watching CNN all day.  Of course, doesn't help to keep hearing "Cairo" over and over, which brings my thoughts right back to the situation.  Dr. Cairo... how and why did I come up with that?  I don't remember anymore.  I confess that I'm scared... wouldn't be human if I wasn't.  But I've been trying to think logically in spite of that fear.

I still have time.  People usually have at least a few months from the time he shows up to the time he gets them.  Mind you, crazy shit happens during those months, but you're still alive.  People have been suggesting I run... I've even suggested it to people in the past. But recently, I've realized something.  That crazy shit will happen where ever you are... whether you're hanging around your house attending college or living the runners life on a rooftop.  Crazy shit happens.  And I'd rather deal with that shit from a familiar place with a support system than a city where you can get killed in a mugging just as easily as he can get you.

Proxies... screw em.  Right now, I'm concerned with one thing, vigilance for when He shows up.  MyDarkJournal, See0ker0x, fearfulXbenefactor... if any of them shows up in person, then I'll give a damn.  And they'll meet mister un-specified weapon purchased this afternoon.  But for now, they're just trolls to me.

Looking back on the last few days, I got way too cocky.  I'm back in reality again.  As for the video itself, you know as much as I do.  I can't see Him anywhere in there, but the picture is just so messed up from distortions.

One of you mentioned the way that the Compilation videos I uploaded that day got screwed up in rendering.  Hadn't thought of it, but I suppose it's possible.  There's a few other things that happened while I was home that I hadn't considered as well... we had the family Christmas party at my uncle's a week before Christmas, and the circuit breakers kept blowing.  I also fell asleep for an hour or so while the realitives were drinking, though I really think I was just tired.  My cell phone charger also went inexplicably missing while I was home so I had to go buy a new one, but it's probably just behind some furniture somewhere... I doubt slender man goes around stealing people's cell phone chargers...

That was my pathetic attempt at being funny.  I'm useless on some days.


Ending Title Card Explanation

So, for the inaugural post, I'll explain something a lot of people have been asking about... those little white title cards that show up along with white noise at the end of some COMPILATIONS.  I never really elaborated about them before... was waiting for someone to pick up the pattern and today someone did.

The messages appear at the end of COMPILATIONS that "conclude" that case.  Thus far they've appeared on three, all of which have concluded. They're semi-cryptic messages that reflect some aspect of the case, meant to provoke thought.  So far, we have the following:

Just Another Fool - "GREATER TRUTH REMAINS" 
Elements of the mystery, such as the "truly concious beings" and messages from the notebooks remain unsolved. There is still a greater truth to be discovered.

Something Awful - "THE TRUTH REMAINS A BLUR" 
We don't know the real story behind the house Asylum uncovered: be it a manifestation by the Slender Man or something else...

Elizabeth, and a great many other runners, tend to keep certain information to themselves. She lied to everyone about her Mother and about her knowledge of Slender Man before her grandmother's death.

The last one applies to a ton of people... myself included.  I hide my true identity... where I am... some of the measures I've taken for my protection.  Different people have different reasons for it... some justified, some not.  It's just part of the life one lives when in this situation.

Sorry for not explaining this earlier.  The way I saw it... if you're in deep enough to be following compileTRUTH, you ought to be used to this kind of thing by now.  Or at least need practice finding their meaning.

Also, I initially had trouble deciding how to end the videos when I wasn't using a "End of Part X" tag.  Just saying.

For Improved Communication

It's Cairo.  Yeah, I did it.  compileTRUTH has a blog now.

The reason is quite simple.  Sometimes I have some thoughts... which are too complex to tweet about (without breaking it up into five or six tweets) but not important enough (or too boring) to make a video on.  Also, a number of you have expressed a wish to be able to communicate with me more directly, without cluttering up Youtube comments or the Twitter Feed.  The comments section here should do nicely.

So, I'll post here about some different things... I'll tweet a link when I post here to make it easier on all involved.  Theories, answers to questions, explanations.  We'll see how things develop.
