Most recently all the loo-roll from the Bennington Memorial Library was stolen, as well as any book containing more than 300 instances of the letter 'z'. Earlier thefts have included every third Toy Story doll from a local 'Toys R Us', forty-two wigs from the Sunnydale/FunFunFun joke shop and the entire stock of technetium-99 from San Francisco General, used for diagnostic tests. The Senior Chapter President, Hank Zackmann, repeated his assertion that the Fraternity were only responsible for the theft of the Sigma Delta mascot (a Monitor Lizard named Liz Ard), and nothing else. An official Police Investigation is ongoing.”

A Familiar Tale

Tonight saw the release of the trailer for Lucy McDonald’s new film: Dominos. From early signs it looks like we may have another horror-filled hit on our hands! Here’s a blow-by-blow account from our movies editor: The trailer opens with a man – Dimitri Anders - playing dominoes with a young women sitting across from him. As they place the pieces the scene cuts away to scenes of horror as blood seems to spatter the walls of a small town motel. In some of the scenes the two figures appear again talking in tense voices. As the trailer comes to an end the last domino placed is covered in blood and the camera pans up moving over the man’s blood soaked fingers up to his face, lit up with a look of maniacal glee.
