||Halloween Masquerade Party Elicits Enjoyment
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.
||Radio Station WSDZ Closes|
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,
||Songs You Can't Get Out Of Your Head Running
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
Dr. Freud then excused himself to continue his research humming 'Disco
||Randomly Held Story Circle a Success!|
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
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

||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.
