Newswire Sources Halloween Masquerade Party Elicits Enjoyment
Next Story
SpinDizzy residents gathered together for the annual Halloween party which has become a  tradition.  Hosted by Flutterz, local DREAD Flower Fae, it was held at 1313 Mockingbird Lane, the creepiest house on the block.
Seeming to closely resemble the home occupied by the Addams family years ago, it has held up well without seeming to deteriorate any further.  As the house was a wreck then it's impossible to imagine it getting any worse.  With a pull on the squeaking gate, party guests moved through the
overgrown yard and past the cemetery to bang the door's huge knockers.  The knockers were quite reminiscent of those in Young Frankenstein.
Once inside, the somber air of the property darkened to reveal a dusty room lit with candles and a large fire.  The ruins of a feast on the table in this Grand Hall were overlooked by the shifting eyes of the statues, busts, and paintings which were on the walls of the room.  A grand staircase
leading upstairs was found by guests to be a trick, as weight upon the top step caused the stairs to shift into a ramp and send them tumbling back into the grand hall.
Although somber and spooky, one bright spot of the house was in the dungeon where Scooby Doo and the gang were to be found hanging from chains on the wall.  Wisely. no one saw fit to release them.
A number of creative costumes were worn by guests and a DJ played music for dancing.  All agreed that the party was enjoyable and next year's is already being looked forward to.
Newswire Sources Radio Station WSDZ Closes
Next Story
Local Radio station WSDZ, an affiliate of the Mutual News Network, announced this week that it was closing it's doors.  General Manager Mega Hurts said, "The fact that no one knows we exists, we have no advertisers or revenue, and that radio waves don't seem to operate in a text based environment forces us to make this difficult decision."
The station, broadcasting at 1450 on the FM band, has a history of troubles, starting with an inebriated DJ who provided the listeners with sounds of his bodily functions in stereo and ending last week with another DJ who played every disco song in the collection backwards to prove that disco was the work of Satan.
Mr. Hurts added that the station's equipment will be sold off at a date to be announced in order to pay off debts.  This includes turntables, cart machines, and quarters used to keep the needles from skipping.  When asked about sale of the station's transmitter, Hurts replied, "Transmitter,
what's that?"
Newswire Sources Songs You Can't Get Out Of Your Head Running Rampant
Next Story
A plague of humming really bad songs has swept over a number of SpinDizzy residents in the past week.  A notice concerning this seems to have aggravated the problem more than alleviated it.  Folks are appearing in the Rose Garden, Park, and other public areas humming 'Horse With No Name', 'Moon River', 'The Thunder Cats Theme', and 'Disco Duck'.

Medical and psychological experts have examined the problem but have been unable to determine it's cause.  Dr. Freud, noted expert and known for his doctoral thesis on lobotomies and muckers, stated, "This problem is deeper and more complex than first thought.  Not only are some humming bad songs, but others are actually making new, even worse songs up on the fly."  He continued, "If this keeps up, SpinDizzy may become a Broadway Musical akinto Cats."

Dr. Freud then excused himself to continue his research humming 'Disco Duck'.

Newswire Sources Randomly Held Story Circle a Success!
Next Story
The randomly held Story Circle last Tuesday was deemed a success by it's initiator, Morticon.  Morticon, leader of the SED, said that, "While it may not LOOK evil, I'm sure there is evil in the Story Circle somewhere.  I would NEVER be involved in something non-evil of course."
The Story Circle, last held by Tarka, and sometimes Argon several years ago, is an event where the story and it's plot is determined by the participants.  Each fur, in order, adds a paragraph or two to the story, building it up.  The finished result can be read in the Gaelic Ruin (S1 E1) by typing 'view'.
Morticon is considering making this a semi-regular event again.  If you are interested, please vote for it in the voting booth found in the rose garden.
Submitted By Flutterz’ Shroomie Farm Head Office Shroomie Farm Break In
  We wish to confirm rumors that the Farm suffered an attack of the most heinous nature. Wednesday night, our fearless and most DREAD leader was making her normal rounds of the Farm when she spied Morticon and his evil henchperson, Azazel, apparently stealing a bushel of prime 'Shroomie Farm product. Flutterz tried to deter the ongoing theft, seeing as the muskrat guards had all been sidestepped by the usually inept Morticon. Flutterz fought bravely, but was eventually knocked senseless (appearances to the contrary) and the vile thieves fled the scene.

 The mushrooms taken were experimental and should be handled with caution...although we fear  this will not be the case now that Morticon has them. We are issuing a plea for the immediate surrender of the 'shroomies. Morticon, as always, should be avoided for the “limp-brained, toadyfacedthingie” that he is.

Info Guidelines and Procedure for Submitting Articles
Next Story When writing articles for the paper...
  • Try and do some proofreading before submission. That means spell check! However, if you're  no good at that sort of stuff, just send it as-is and the editors will try their best.  
  • No articles whose sole purpose is to flame someone. You can use SD BB for that ;)  
  • All parties whose names were mentioned MUST confirm with the editors that they were really involved (or agree to be involved even if they weren't there). No confirmation, no publish. See submission instructions. An exception to this is when you mention their name ONCE, and in a manner that suggests simply that they were present. If you mention their name multiple times, give a quote, or document an action by them then it must be confirmed.  
  • The editors' decisions are final. This is not a wiz-ran paper so do not complain to them. We can be reached by paging 'newspaper'.  
  • Just about anything is published, so be creative! It can be IC views on RL topics, RPs that occurred around the MUCK, or most other things you can think of. You have creative license when it comes to documenting RPs, so feel free to expound on the action, etc. If you aren't sure if a story is acceptable, page 'newspaper' and find out! :)  
  • The AUP applies so keep language, etc acceptable.

    Procedure for submitting an article: 

  • The newspaper building is located at Role Play Central (rpc). When you enter the building you will see a bulletin board.  
  • Go ahead and 'write' your story. If you decide you don't want to write one, hit .abort and forget about it. Otherwise page 'newspaper' alerting us that you wrote one when you finish pasting it in.  
  • An alternative to this is to page #mail newspaper with your story OR email it to newspaper@spindizzy.org  
  • It is highly recommended that you have everyone involved in the story page 'newspaper' confirming that they were involved and want it to be published. Otherwise, the appropriate editor will be paging them confirming, which only wastes time. No confirmation, no publish. See article guidelines for more information.  
  • Once all that is done, we will edit it and tell you where you can look at it to make sure it wasn't mangled. You can then p #mail the editor involved saying that it is ok. Otherwise, suggest changes that should be made and why. If you trust the editors feel free to put something to the effect that you pre-approve the editing.  
  • Thats it! It'll appear in the paper!
