I’ve also been looking for this book!
The story is called “Who Dares Wins” and it’s by Damien Graves. I first read it in this compilation.
Totally freaked me out too. There was at least one story in each of his books that kept me up for nights on end. From what I remember they meet a girl at an arcade, and she dares them to overcome their fears. One has to eat tomatoes, then the other has to eat a spider. One has to be out late in the woods etc. At the end I don’t remember if they die but one definitely gets locked up in a box on a construction site where it ends saying they wouldn’t find him for at least a few days or so.
This might be a bit of a long shot... could he be referring to Alexa, the personal assistant voice that comes with the Amazon Echo?
He might have seen a commercial or something for it. Since Alexa's voice is disembodied and comes straight from the device, he could interpret that as a ghost.
The Echo comes in either black or white and has a blue light that rings around it.
If you’re certain both stories were in the same book, you may have had an edition containing multiple volumes from The Midnight Library.
From book 4, the story you remember is titled Who Dares Wins. “Mark and Calvin, friends who are naturally competitive, vie for the attention of the mysterious Chrissie.”
From book 5, I can’t find the actual title of the third story, but you can find it summarized online as “Alexis attends a dangerous acting class in which the drama is no act” and “experience a deadly game of wink murder”.

Doobee's Four Seasons: The Quest for Tomatoes?
"This story was written to teach children about the four seasons. It is an animated version of a true story of a Peking duck named Doobee and his quest for his favorite passion: juicy red tomatoes"
Sounds like The Last Days of the World, just by looking at the amazon reviews that mention mayo. And man, the fact that it's on Amazon Prime is definitely making it tempting to actually watch.

The Autobiography of Meatball Finkelstein
For an overweight vegetarian named Meatball Finkelstein, being accepted by his peers seems impossible. The boy has given up trying. He has his one friend, another untouchable, and he is just fine-until he falls in love with a pretty new girl and, in a foolish attempt to prove himself, he eats his first meatball. At this point the plot takes its first high-speed curve. The meatball gives him magical powers, which unleashes plot twists and surprises that swing the story from average into a very funny, screwball comedy.
This one. It's absolutely Suicide Notes.
Wow! I'm so glad I could help! My heart reaches out to you and your family.
Here's another link with some less expensive options.
Not a website, but this book is pretty much exactly what you describe: Make the Bread, Buy the Butter. Any chance you're thinking of a book instead?
You got the book, but /u/OhNoBees got the Short Story title... (Just read the 'Look Inside' part of the book on Amazon. From the 3 pages it shows of the short story - the OP's description is pretty spot on.
So to clarify, Make Something Up, Stories You Can't Unread by Chuck Palahniuk is the book, and Cannibal is one of the 21 short stories that book features.

I'm not familiar with the exact game you're subscribing, but it sounds a awful lot like the new party game Spyfall.
"Spyfall is a party game unlike any other, one in which you get to be a spy and try to understand what's going on around you. It's really simple!
Spyfall is played over several rounds, and at the start of each round all players receive cards showing the same location — a casino, a traveling circus, a pirate ship, or even a space station — except that one player receives a card that says "Spy" instead of the location. Players then start asking each other questions — "Why are you dressed so strangely?" or "When was the last time we got a payday?" or anything else you can come up with — trying to guess who among them is the spy. The spy doesn't know where he is, so he has to listen carefully. When it's his time to answer, he'd better create a good story!
At any time during a round, one player may accuse another of being a spy. If all other players agree with the accusation, the round ends and the accused player has to reveal his identity. If the spy is uncovered, all other players score points. However, the spy can himself end a round by announcing that he understands what the secret location is; if his guess is correct, only the spy scores points.
After a few rounds of guessing, suspicion and bluffing, the game ends and whoever has scored the most points is victorious!"
I just wanted to first say thank you to everyone helping with this - while the movie hasn't been found yet, I appreciate all the suggestions. Here are a few more details than can help track it down that may help :
the movie was in English with no discernible accents (i.e. no southern drawl, no British accent). It was a cast of unknowns, with the lead woman being of anglo-descent with shoulder-length or longer brown hair.
the home had no immediate neighbors, it was surrounded by trees but not in the deep wilderness. The home was like a smaller farmhouse-style home.
the flashback in the movie was 'bright', as in it used very '70's colors for the bathroom and bedroom. Think yellows, khakis, light brown. The modern scenes were 'cooler' - think light blues and light greys.
We saw this movie at home, between 2009 and 2013, in California. We saw this when our daughter was an infant/toddler, and one of the reasons we cannot remember the name is because we were sleep deprived at the time and the movie started off fairly mediocre. It wasn't until the protagonist started to piece together her memories that it 'snapped' us out of our sleep-deprived haze and we started to REALLY pay attention because it unexpectedly got good.
the movie was over 90+ minutes. We would put on movies instead of TV shows because they were longer and we could 'doze' off and not have to worry about waking the other person to change the movie.
the 'closest' movie we came across to the one we are trying to find was The House Of Good and Evil ( https://www.netflix.com/title/70305010 ). It has a 'feel' and look similar to the movie we saw.
THANKS FOR THE HELP!!
Could it be this one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Unrelenting-Terror-P-S-Power-ebook/dp/B008IZKJA0/ref=la_B0077HN0AQ_1_76?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1515340865&sr=1-76&refinements=p_82%3AB0077HN0AQ
I know it's from a book by Betty MacDonald called "Mrs. Piggle Wiggle." It was written sometime in the late 1940's to the 1950's.
FOUND IT! On Amazon.
The library next to me has a copy of the VHS in their possession if nothing else pans out. I think I have access to a VCR at my studio.
Already confirmed though, the composer is Debbie Wiseman. She has several CD's, though I don't see any tracks listed as "The Gettys". She has one CD that is all scores of her TV compositions, but maybe she wrote that score for some other show and it just got used in The Gettys as well? This is that CD: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00006LHZU/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_U_x_wb0IDbHF37BJS
Ahh I know this game its on a site called Kongerate, sadly I'm on a mobile device and can't browse to find it. (But if nobody has found it later on I'll be sure to come back here). I found it to be a very depressing and dark game.

Here are two links I've found regarding it:
The first link says that the character came to the same conclusion you stated, killing the monkey to save future people.
The second link is just a small discussion about the dilemma.
One proposed solution would be to capture the monkey and continue to delay shooting it indefinitely, not choosing to shoot him and not choosing yet to not shoot him. And do that until the mother or father die naturally and no one has to die for his choice.

Split Second by Nick Baker as /u/CoffeeInThatNebula says. From what I can find in WorldCat, it's super rare, and can really only be found in the UK. A bunch of libraries have it there, but I found one copy on ebay for only $5, but who knows how much shipping will run you. Might still be worth it. Good luck!

Maybe Unnatural (Archangel Academy) by Michael Griffo?
While this might seem like the typical love triangle, there's more going on below the surface at Archangel Academy. As in the human world, prejudices exist within the vampire world. We learn that while Nakano and Ronan are both vampires, they are two different breeds of vampires. Nakano's breed is of the more traditional variety; Ronan is a Water Vamp, a crossbreed between a vampire and a water-dwelling humanoid. The Water Vamps can walk in the sunlight, but they need to feed on blood and return to the sea of their birth once in awhile; Nakano's kind need to feed on blood on a regular basis, and while they can walk about in the daylight, they can only do so on the grounds of Archangel Academy, which right away informs the reader that there is something about the school, but what exactly it is is not revealed--at least not in this book. The Water Vamps are considered inferior among the vampire world. The conflict for the novel is set: vampire against vampire, and a seething jealousy of an ex toward his replacement.

At first I considered words like "mortified," "discomfit" or "dejected," but these miss the mark, I think.

Karoshi Suicide Salaryman
I had only heard of canistreamit but I wanted to make sure justwatch had older movies and Kanopy on there and thankfully they do! One major thing though is that they don't mention that Kanopy is free compared to FilmStruck or Netflix.
The default is the page where all the genres are all sprawled everywhere. Try clicking list on the menu! Every genre appears, along with a Spotify playlist of representative music. Cool!
It sorta reminds me of Falkor from The Neverending Story..even though he's white-haired. Something about the eyes.
The Amazing Adventures of Soupy Boy
"contact with "radioactive cosmic dust" at a soup factory turns an ordinary baby into a can with arms and legs who can turn himself into Soupy Boy: "(Gasp!) He can roll downhill quickly! (Gape!)

I think the artist is french singer Martine Habib - there are clips on youtube of her singing, but not this song, and the voice is a perfect match. She released a self-titled album in 1973 on Columbia Records, recorded in Nashville, and one of the singles is titled "The Hardest Game of All" - which matches lyrics in the chorus of this mystery song.
Edited to add: here's the album info and track listing...
Depict1 is the name of the above game, which I think is probably what you are looking for. Also Go Right.
Here you go! It is from Education, 1992 S01 E04.
I used to fucking love that show. I really do miss it. I wish they'd bring it back in reruns. I miss 1990s Nick (especially Snick) and MTV. I would love if they brought Roundhouse, The State, Sifl and Ollie, Clarissa Explains it All, and You Can't Do That on TV back for us. Maybe Turkey Television as well.

I can solve one of those problems. Adblock Plus works with any browser you're likely to have and gets rid of pretty much every ad out there. Flashing banners? Nope. Google contextual weirdness? Not unless you allow it. YouTube unrelated crap at high volume? Never. (Well, unless it's an actual video, not an ad before a video. And you still don't want to read the comments.)
Anyway... it would be nice if the sidebar suggested including a genre, but given how often I've guided people to Vocaroo and/or the sequencer, I think expecting everyone to include a rough genre in their post title is a bit optimistic.

This collection was a long-time TOMT of my own. I recently found and ordered it - it includes your short video (and many others). I believe you're thinking of The Classic Storybook Collection, with actress Hayley Mills introducing each of them.

Edit: I haven't finished watching all 32 stories, but I'm not sure the toe one was there. My favorite as a kid was "Hardlucky," where a really unlucky guy learns to be more careful and teaches himself to make amazing omelets.

I come from a Jewish family. My father is head of the education department of our local synagogue, and he has been a book salesman for nearly 45 years. He (and my mother) have read pretty much every book there is to read about the holocaust, be it fiction or non-fiction.
I just gave him a call and asked him whether the story sounds familiar. It rang no bells, unfortunately, but he said that it may, perhaps, be a fleeting passage in a book called The Pope's Jews: The Vatican's Secret Plan to Save Jews from the Nazis.
I hope this helps!
I thought I was onto something as I could hear audio that was slightly separate on the exile song.

Here is it uploaded to soundcloud for reference to OP and others who might wonder what it is :)
Not sure if this is what you mean because this is much more lengthy. However, it is similar. It is fanfic written to explain core rational principles (e.g. logic) --> Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality
Production and thematically, it was similar to House Of Good and Evil ( https://www.netflix.com/title/70305010 ). When we first found it about a year ago on Netflix, we thought it was the movie. While the Netflix description is similar, it's not it but it's DAMN close. Same time era. Same level of special effects - not mind-blowing but not overly cheesy. Same focus on one female protagonist. This is the 'closest' we have come to the movie we are looking for - if you want an example of what the movie was like, it's a good place to start.
Please post me a link to one of those websites, too - my wife and I usually use Netflix or IMDB to find similar movies (it's how we found House Of Good and Evil) and any new websites will be helpful. We will run through our 'list' when we get the link.
There is no ancient word. As far as I've found (as a pagan that follows a slight reconstructionist study of the Hellenic path), there is no word for the religion of the ancient Greeks, because the religion was so intrinsically tied to your daily life and civic duty as a citizen that it was inseparable. The same can be said for many other ancient cultures. Even the word <em>religion</em> is recent.
Modern terms, it is called Hellenic Polytheism. Hellenic because it is tied to the era of the Emperor Julian & what he was attempting to create, because otherwise the multiple ancient cultures and local practice of each region would become a mess.
This might be it, but I think I remember the definition specifically including the fact that you forgot the lyrics/didn't know the lyrics to the song. Either way, I'm going to leave this thread as unsolved because maybe there's words for this in other languages too! Thanks!

I'm fairly certain you're referring to the 1993 game "Lost in Time", by Coktel Vision. It meets all the criteria regarding everything you've listed about the game, including escaping from a ship cabin and making your way to an island with a lighthouse. Do not let the bizarre synopsis below throw you off.
"In 1992, a woman named Doralice was investigating a shipwreck when suddenly it started moving. Unable to understand what's going on, Doralice investigates the ship and eventually finds out that she was chosen by the Space Time Patrol to travel back in time, to the year 1840. It appears that a man from the 22th century named Jarlath Equs has obtained a sample of a highly powerful and enigmatic element known as Americium 1492, and traveled back in time in order to hide it together with other treasure on the island of St. Cristobald. Doralice mission is to stop Jarlath at all costs - even if that means endangering her own future existence, for she herself is the descendant of Jarlath's wife and her lover...
Lost in Time is a puzzle-solving adventure game. Most of the gameplay is dedicated to exploring the surroundings and combining inventory items or using them with other objects to solve puzzles. The navigation and the manipulation of objects is performed from a first-person perspective. The game uses short video clips (sometimes with live actors) as graphical "comments" to the player's actions or as cutscenes."
EDIT: In the game, you do indeed at one point get off a boat and then explore an island that has a lighthouse. Most of the game is first-person, though it occasionally cuts back to show your own character perform actions.

> Artist Nathwell Tate was born in 1928 in Union Beach, New Jersey. On January 8 1960 he contrived to round up and burn almost his entire output of Abstract Expressionism. Four days later he killed himself. This book offers an account of Tate's life and work.
> When William Boyd published his biography of New York modern artist Nat Tate, a huge reception of critics and artists arrived for the launch party, hosted by David Bowie, to toast the late artist's life. Little did they know that the painter Nat Tate, a depressive genius who burned almost all his output before his suicide, never existed. The book was a hoax, and the art world had fallen for it.

Shadow of Destiny
"Set in a fictional German town named Lebensbaum, Shadow of Memories revolves around a 22-year-old man named Eike Kusch, who dies in the beginning of the game from being stabbed after leaving a small diner. However, he is resurrected by Homunculus, who offers to send him back in time to prevent his death and gives him the time-traveling digipad."
Invictus: In the Shadow of Olympus lets you play as Odysseus, and you can recruit other heroes, including Hippolyta, to your team. The review I linked to is from 2000, so the time period is about right. Could this be it?
That's what I was thinking. I'd guess OP got this mixed up with the HST quote. Here's the original wording:

Google is usually much easier to use for things like this. You either type a small paragraph explaining what it is, or type "conan nicole scherzinger gif" into google. I think people should see TOMT as a place to go after google, as opposed to instead of google.

Have a listen to this preview.. Is it the one you heard?
It's called a Risset or Shepard Tone. There is a risset tone generator that is used in the program Audiomulch. Basically it creates an acoustic illusion "constructed by creating a series of overlapping ascending or descending scales." The wiki article has several pop culture examples of these tones that might be what you're looking for.
I used one in a song once, thought i was having flashbacks when I clicked your link.
EDIT - there are some additional FX on the particular one in the clip you posted. The example used in the wiki article doesn't sound much like what's in your youtube clip, but the generator in Audiomulch can be made to sound exactly like it. I realize I've failed to tell you what you are remembering the sound from, but I got excited that I knew what it was so kind of forgot. It could be used in lots of different things really. Hope this was at least a little informative.

DiskMan: Backup your computer disks; collect as many disks as you can, avoiding all hazards along the way and inserting the disks into the disk drive to open the exit to the next level.
Tankbattle: Work your way across a battlefield to capture the opposing coat of arms to open the exit to the next level. Avoid turrets, bombs, and other obstacles.
Lost 'N Maze: Quickly travel through the corridors of the maze until you locate the keys to the exit. Collect various power-ups and bonus points along the way.
Diet Riot: Put all the junk food stores out of business by having your man gather all the food crates for each store and throw them in the dumpster. Beware of junk food -- eating it slows you down and threatens you with a heart attack; you can "work out" using the exercise equipment to speed back up, as well as eating healthy food.
Blockalanche: An isometric-view Tetris clone, with the differences of being able to select your next piece (if you're quick enough) and being only able to rotate your block around one axis.
The gameplay options are also quite varied: Each game can be played one player alone, two players alternately, two players simultaneously, or one player against one of three computer personalities -- including split-screen play for head-to-head competition.
It sounds an awful lot like the Madness series - they had a few flash games.
Come to think of it, there was another Newgrounds series (kind of overwrought, but whatever) in a somewhat similar control style to this; it was hosted on there but also on www.crazymonkeygames.com. I can't remember the name of the artist who uploaded it. I think as I remember it more, it sounds more and more like what you're talking about, but I can't remember any names. I don't think metal was in the title, though.

edit: Here's the original thread (I think)
To explain what I mean, I googled a town tune maker, and found one on scratch. I tried to recreate the tune with the right rythm. Here's the code to input:
You can see that the tune doesn't fit in the notes, and I had to switch octaves because I couldn't get high enough ones. It plays faster in the town tune maker than in the actual game too.
EDIT: Seems like the codes are short lived, so I'll type it out and you can imagine or input it yourself:
the asterisks are continued notes.
This is indeed Evidence. Full name is Evidence : The Last Report. Link.
I bought it in occasion once, but I don't remember finishing it. I also thought I was the only one on Earth to have ever played that game.
Hyper Light Drifter
this game actually looks pretty wicked. i may have to ~~buy~~ preorder it now.
Love that asterisk wild card. "Stupid * Girl" on google did the trick.
It's "Stupid Pretty Girl" by Anthony Salari.
According to the tunefind link above it was featured in Parenthood and Jane By Design.
I then searched reddit for "Anthony Salari" and found the thread:
Oh my god I searched so hard because I know this show too!!! I remembered there being something about a medallion and i finally found it-
Its Lanfeust Quest!!
This site had the answer, I See the Future by Andrew Pinching. Track 29 here, it's about 1:10 into the song.
Do you remember it having strong Christian overtones? The only VHS I could find that had those three songs on it was this one called Brentwood Kids Company hallelujah hop
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenny_Dies That has to be the episode you're thinking of, but there's no mention of clones. Maybe it was just a one time after the credits kind of thing?
Also, it's mentioned here, but I don't think it's true. I'm pretty sure that Kenny B stuff is just some really dedicated fanfic.
>“To draw an analogy: a man's suffering is similar to the behavior of a gas. If a certain quantity of gas is pumped into an empty chamber, it will fill the chamber completely and evenly, no matter how big the chamber. Thus suffering completely fills the human soul and conscious mind, no matter whether the suffering is great or little. Therefore the "size" of human suffering is absolutely relative.”
