Yeezy Season 3 sounds like something I'd take Claritin-D for.
Resident Egon

The Necronomicon glowed, for the Kindle was Paperwhite. The Old Ones self-published. Cooper first started to read it on the subway. His eyes would flick up every now and then. The girl sitting across from him was wearing shorts, and as the train hurtled along underground, her thighs would vibrate. Back down again. The book was by Abdul Alhazred - who was that? Cooper didn't quite remember downloading this in the first place, but here it was. Probably just an absent-minded batch download. These things happened. The girl's legs wobbled. Cooper tried to focus. 'That is not dead which can eternal lie.

"Be careful how you act in public because someone might be filming it" is just a little subtly different than "Try to be a decent human being".
Resident Egon

This time, chance was against us. The ancients had detected the presence of that one long back. He has been playing a long game.. Taking the form of a young boy, he had entered the industry, trying to get ahead, trying to get noticed. They said the Evil Warlock would stop at nothing to get his hands on the Precious Metal.. But we, the Order, must do everything in our power to stop that from happening, because the alternative is too terrifying to think about. I straightened my bowtie. I was getting nervous, we had never attempted anything this risky in the past. The Order had always managed to swing the academy vote and deny the Warlock, Leo, from winning the award.

Top of Form Sometimes, quiter nights are a nice break. Especially when there's a nasty enough cold running around that I'm having to run a quiz while impaired. Thankfully not our entire cache of quizzers was wiped off the map by this supervirus, so to the faithful strong I thank you for your patience last with me sounding like I sounded. Now onto your recap. Bottom of Form     BEST ROUNDS OF THE NIGHT!!!!!! Round 2 helped a bit if you all tried to answer at once in chorus. AH! SEE WHAT I DID THERE?! Sorry Leo, even in Round 3 you just can't win... Round 4...Crotch Lake...'nuff said... Enough

Truthfully, I can't think of a movie that shouldn't promote itself with Ice Cube masks and vuvuzelas. That kind of idea puts butts in seats.
Resident Egon

Occasionally the hull would let out a mournful sound, inaudible in the endless vacuum of the firmament. From within the reverberations are horrifyingly fragile reports of a structure at the very limits of tolerance, ready to collapse and awaiting that final straw be it dust, debris or it’s own relentless momentum. Until his first spaceflight Major Martin Thomas had never realized the vulnerability of his own existence; or that of every other person he ever known or loved. But looking at the predominantly blue and shrinking sphere he knew as home with its pale carapace of atmosphere the realization was undeniable. Endless debates within the scientific community, news reports and documentaries

Resident Egon

"You were always my greatest disappointment," the voice on the other end of the line wheezed. I could hear wrappers crinkling through the static. The voice continued with labored breath, "I slaved over you. I built you into my greatest creation - but you failed to meet every last expectation." I thought I heard the sound of more wrappers being shredded open, but it was hard to tell because at that moment, a bunch of boys on the field were screaming at each other. One of them had found a stick twice as tall as he

"Now kids," Steve said into the camera as he snuck closer to the entrance of the ice cave, "remember: Wampas aren't too bright, but they're extremely strong and dangerous. You probably won't ever see one of these buggers out in the wild unless you're a tauntaun living here on Hoth. But just in case, don't try this at home!" He put on his cap that had an adjustable camera right on the brim to film his point of view or his face, then crawled through the narrow dark opening into the Wampa's lair. "Oh boy," he exclaimed as he made his way into the main chamber of the cave and set up another camera on a tripod. "She's a big 'un!" He pointed the camera briefly to the sleeping

Resident Egon

"So you see Scrooge, your once beloved Belle has now found a new love and a new home. Your love for money instead of her drove her from you." "And?" Scrooge asked the ghost archly? "Let's see what it would have been like if I had chosen her over money!" There was a moment's silence and the ghost looked confused. "Eh?" "Well spirit, so fine and fair, you showed me what happened, but I knew that already. I'm fucking rich, you think I couldn't track down an old girlfriend?" "Well, the point is that you loved and lost because of..." Scrooge tapped his foot rudely and wagged his finger in the ghosts face. "If you're any bloody use at all then show me my past

Resident Egon

"All I'm saying is that I think you get too angry every time the topic of Harry Potter comes up, Dee. I mean, sure the books are probably exaggerated but the way you rant about him would make anyone think that he was a monster." I set down my Butterbeer as calmly as I could. "That's because he WAS a monster, Mike. Those stories are so heavily altered that they may as well be in the fiction section of every bookstore and library. Anyone who went to Hogwarts with him and paid even the LEAST bit of attention to their surroundings would tell you that." "No way man. Those books have way too much detail. Maybe he had more help but in his first year he still managed to kill

That difficult day when The Sith learned a very important lesson in perspective.
Resident Egon

"Stand him back up!" The Inquisitor's words hissed from his mouth directly at the two guards who propped the prisoner back to a standing position. This interrogation had been going on longer than anyone had anticipated, and the lack of information that had been garnered from this man was starting to affect even the hardened Sith Lord. The air crackled as yet another shock of Force Lighting escaped from his fingertips and struck its target, arcing through the prisoner's body. "What is your name!?" asked the Inquisitor his voice barely audible over the sound of the lighting arching through the air. "Where did you come from!?" Still the prisoner remained silent. His breath

Okay man, okay, just hear me out. I know this is gonna sound crazy but when you put all the pieces together, it makes perfect sense. So we got the Death Star, right? Super imperial battle station that can annihilate planets. This thing is armed man, it's got fuckin' turbolasers and gun turrets and detection grids and shielding out the asshole. PLUS there's squadrons of fighters inside this thing - I mean, it's the size of a moon man! So with all this firepower and all this protection, somehow, SOMEHOW it gets blown up by a lone x-wing.

Resident Egon

“Who the hell’re you?” I shout, voice cracking in an embarrassing way which likely discredited my authority entirely. The man stood, looking at me blankly, clutching a briefcase in his right hand and slowly tucking his left into his fine black suit coat. On my white tiled entryway floor, tracked through my new beige carpet and onto the hardwood of my kitchen, were scattered bloody paw prints. With a steady hand and vacant blue eyes, the bald headed, well dressed, fellow pulled a gun out of his jacket and pointed it at me. I wasn’t even supposed to be home. Usually, I’d be out at my job. I got to work at seven in the morning nearly everyday and

Resident Egon

I was tracking his every move. He thought he was being sly, waiting to slip through blind spots in the visual defense system by waiting for the cameras to be at just the right angles. What he didn't know was that I had made a totally off-the-record transaction, 100% in cash, for motion sensitive pressure pads randomly throughout the building. I was totally ready for him. The package was an unassuming brown cube, tied up with totally generic string. No bows, no labels, nothing that could be traced. I figured he's used gloves to wrap it up, so I couldn't swab it for fingerprints. It seemed I was at a total advantage. He had no chance. And that's when I noticed it. It

Resident Egon

In the second week of the first year of the underground offensive on ISIS, Harry Qin of SEAL Team 2 had been under siege in the village for three days. "Don't you get it, Qin?" his captain screamed, "there are no reinforcements, because we're not supposed to be here. We repair this chopper or we die." So Harry Qin went to work. "Captain," Harry said, "If we fly off on this chopper, what happens to the villagers?" "We killed al-Alwani," the captain said, "We did our job." They were holed up in a small village at the base of a cliff, with 6 living SEALs and about 60 armed men from the village. ISIS had about 300 men, 100 with automatics, but the village was walled and

Resident Egon

The first time I met him, it had been a sunny day in the middle of the seven-hundred and fifteenth year of Faulk. He was younger then, brighter--whatever lack in the weapons and shoddy clothes he had was made up for in the ambition that coloured his eyes and in the way he so carefully counted his coins before handing them to me. He wasn't the first person to walk into my shop and surely he wouldn't be the last, but as I handed him his set of potions (all fifty tied up in a leather bag), he was the first to say 'thank you' before leaving. And all the others hadn't said thank you before. The second time we met, it was sunny again. He entered my shop and the weapon at his hip

Resident Egon

Fewer zombies than the rest of the country, but that can't stop the madness. Nor the sanity. Maybe it can oppose the malaise, but that's like stealing candy from a baby. In fact.... It had been years since I was contacted by the agency, even longer since some of my contacts were active again. Yet the letter sat on my doorstep one fateful afternoon, after I had gone into retirement, but not before my greatest job. None of my old partners, myself included, could miss a shot like this. One last job, the biggest one I would, and could, ever attempt in my life. It was the perfect idea, and the agency wanted the best of the best. So they called me. And I couldn't resist the chance

Resident Egon

“So this is it, huh?” They say it all comes crashing down eventually. I guess the universe wasn’t an exception. The planet Solanna-1452-C, last and only inhabitable planet in the 238-BS solar system, is approximately fifteen light minutes away from Beta Sagittarius, the last known star in existence. Normally, I wouldn’t really give a crap about numbers and names like this, but with the end of life as we know it slowly approaching, you end up focusing on the little details. I swallowed. The motion felt dry. “Yeah. For all we know, it could’ve already happened.” Beta Sagittarius had been slowly burning itself to death for thousands
