Assignment (3 stars)
After cooking all afternoon, the Red Reaper finally arrived at my house a little after 6:00 PM. This was only the day after we had finished recording our segments for the Edward Creeper Show, so we were both still a bit worn out. However, I thought it would be nice to sit down and learn more a little bit more about this mysterious character.
We began with a chopped salad, followed by a heaping serving of mashed potatoes and my famous homemade chicken florentine. I wasn’t quite sure at first what I should fix, since our only prior communication had been on set. But, he ate it all, so either it was indeed a good meal, or he did a good job faking it. Anyways, we talked a lot about my show, and how I ended up as the host (that is a story for another day, however). We discussed more in depth some of the horror movies he previously reviewed, but he still didn’t seem too impressed with any of them. I even tried to show him a few scenes from my favorite movie (A Nightmare on Elm Street), but I could not convince him. But, everyone has their own opinions and views, so I respect that.
We finished the night with a slice of apple pie and some vanilla ice cream, and talked about what the future held for us. As you may have heard previously on my show, the Red Reaper has a film coming out very soon that he seemed considerably excited about. I certainly hope that I can make one of the showings for it, as I am very interested to see what kind of horror style he works best with. As for me, I spend most of my time finding topics for my show, and interviewing characters such as the one I was sitting across from.
After finishing our desert, the Red Reaper headed back out in the world. It certainly was an interesting evening, and I am glad that the Edward Creeper Show allowed me to befriend such a unique character. Who knows who I will meet next?
I chose this assignment, because it seemed like a fun way to incorporate two different characters from ds106. Also, we had just finished our radio show last week (which included the Red Reaper), so I thought it would be interesting to see how these characters would interact outside of the set.
