On Tuesday May the 24th, the Other Worlds Austin staff meeting was interrupted by an unknown force. The OWA Director of Operations, Courtney Hazlett, was updating the team on her most recent operation, removing a butterfly from the stomach of a man with a red glowing nose, when she started foaming from the mouth and convulsing. The room's temperature increased by thirty degrees and the door swung shut as the team worried about who was going to bake the cookies for the next festival if Courtney didn't pull through. They all knew that without her adorable and quite tasty baked goods, no one would have the energy to get through all four days in December.
After all the shaking and slobbering, Courtney jumped on top of the conference room table and paced around staring down each team member. She moved like she was a marionette with its strings tangled and spoke in mumblecore. Luckily, Jordan Brown had her Duplass Mumble What? Translator App on her phone. The app is amazing. It's able to decipher any nonprofessional actor's improvised scene and sums up the point of it all. Without the app, the team would have thought they were watching Courtney deliberate what loaf of bread would be appropriate to take to her ex-boyfriend's funeral potluck. The scene dragged on and on and finally ended with Courtney deciding to move to California and become a dog surfing instructor.
Courtney came to and the team huddled around Jordan's phone as the app filtered out all of the bullshit. They gasped in unison as the results flashed on the screen. HUMANITY ENDS ON JUNE 23rd 2016.
But who sent the message and how are they planning to end humanity?
Worry not, our fellow humans: the Other Worlds Austin team is on the case and we have already captured the usual suspects. Cthulhu, an out of control AI, and many others are currently being interrogated. We will post the interrogation logs to our blog in the hope that you can help us figure out who plans on ending humanity on the same night as the Other Worlds Austin 9 pm screening of PRISONER X at Flix Brewhouse (see the trailer and buy tickets here).
