Ever feel like you never want to stop dancing? Twirling and reeling, the music pushing and pulling you until you realize you're surrounded by other dancers dressed so refined. It's a party the likes of which you've not seen, but heard of in stories of luxury. To call it a simple "ball" would be an insult to organized revelry. No, this gathering holds magic, mystique, and beautiful confusion. The real ball isn't the one you attend, it's where it takes place. As was said, this is no mere gathering of music, mischief, and hidden identity, this is a masquerade.

"I saw my baby, trying hard as babe could try."

Batman and The Maxx. Gritty, heroic, smart. Well, Batman is smart. The new Dynamic Duo they are not, but more of a buddy cop duo who are about two days away from retirement. Partners thrust together in a situation neither expected nor consensual. When you take on the Outback, it's best to do it together and there's no one much more experienced in the Outback than The Maxx. Two heroes forced into a situation that puts their physical and mental acumen to the test. Not just the type of brain power gained by years of training and deduction, but also the type of brain power one earns on the streets. That's easy enough to say for the Batman, but The Maxx goes about it in a whole different way. Imagine a funhouse mirror. You look into one, and what do you see? A warped, distorted vision staring back at you with your own eyes. Such can be said for these two heroes, if that's what you call them. Two sides of the same coin, one created on the streets of Gotham, the other who still lives there. Batman can only save what he knows; The Maxx can only save what he perceives. It'll take both to save the Outback and protect Julie and the Jungle Queen from unseen foes.

A worm, a mother, and a talking rosebush walk into a maze...

Who tells the story of the storyteller? They themselves would weave a most fantastical tale from whence they came, foregoing truth for tantalization and admission for admiration. It's the periphery that speaks plain. An unnoticed blur among the throng. A whisper of a thought. Just another shadow cast on a wall in a castle made for a Goblin King.

Remember when you were the loser in high school for not playing D&D? All the most popular and sexually active teens were doing it? Rollin' d20s like it ain't no thang. They like to hit that with multiple crit. Naw, I'm sayin' my DMs? Remember?

Hai Keeba, Manos, and welcome. Today, we discuss the majesty and magnitude of that which is Mystery Science Theater 3000. For over 30 years, MST3k has been dazzling audiences with wit, charm, and the occasional touch of snark, forever affecting the lives of people who love to hate bad movies. That stalwart pillar of intelligence and pop culture references, appreciated on various levels by those in the know. Now that the butt kissing is through, here's the story so far...

"Nah-nah, Nah-nah, Nah-nah, Nah-nah . . . BATMAN!" "CHUNG CHUNG CHUNG CHUNG CHUNG" . . . The Maxx! Two great tastes that taste great together? Sure, but you should see the newsome twosome take on The Outback! ...and it's inhabitants.

Some words get tossed around like a filet mignon into a catcher's mitt. Fancy words, used to enhance text and take it to another level of sophistication. Words like "unequivocally," "erudite," "profundity," and "dork." Do these words have anything in common? Do they raise the level of supposed intellect on the part of your writer? Nay! They are merely big words for small people. Normal-sized words will do just fine.
