So, not sure what the heck happened to all of the site's avatars, but if you want to link a new one, make sure it's http, NOT https, and just not too long. This was fine: http://farm5.staticflickr.com/4242/34996742983_9f1a3b31fa_m.jpg

I used imgur personally, and this worked fine for me: http://i.imgur.com/NYZODXk.gif

Also, the site can get testy, if at first it doesn't like the link, try again. You won't see it in your settings, to test, check the forums for one of your posts.

PS: Don't use Photobucket. They're systematically blocking off ALL third party links unless you're paying for an account. They seem to go by pages and graphics that are getting higher traffic, but ultimately ALL of their stuff will be blocked. If you are using them for anything, transfer to a different provider. This isn't the old days where they were the only game in town, as they're going to discover quite swiftly.


Double Homicide at Euro Arms Inc. Gunshop
Posted by Hermione on Saturday 08 July 2017 - 13:23:59
The local news stations and radio stations carry this as one of their breaking news stories for the next couple of days:

Police responded to reports of an active shooter situation taking place yesterday afternoon at gun shop Euro Arms Inc in Pasadena. Two people are reported dead, not including the gunmen who is said to be critical condition after an apparent self inflicted gunshot wound to the head. A third man said to be the owner of the shop is said to be in serious but stable condition as he under goes treatment at a local hospital.

The cause of the shooting is still under investigation but it appears that the gunman was not working alone. Video from the shop shows him depositing an undisclosed number of arms and ammunition into a waiting van which speeds off moments before the gunman tried to take his own life. Officials aren't saying much, other then they believe it may be gang related. They have released a blurry image of what appears to show a black van with tinted windows fleeing the scene of the crime. Anyone with information regarding this situation is urged to contact the Pasadena Police Department immediately.

This is the second crime in a two weeks where the gunman has or tried to take his own life after an otherwise successful robbery. While police insist the two matters are not related, city leaders are pressing for answers. As concerns of possible renewed gang violence or a spike in violent crimes like that which was seen in the early to mid 90's might once again be returning to Los Angeles.


Jewelry Exchange Robbed
Posted by Galileos Lens on Saturday 24 June 2017 - 14:01:02
Fantasy Jewelry Exchange on Hollywood Blvd, was robbed this afternoon in a brazen attempt by a lone gunmen to rob the store. Its reported by witnesses that a disheveled tired looking man in his 30's, who was armed with a handgun, and what looked like an explosive vest of some kind. Entered the exchange during the end of business hours and demanded an undisclosed amount of jewelry and money from staff.

While initial reports claimed the suspect has escaped. His body was later found several blocks away. Dead from an apparent self inflicted gunshot wound to the head. The police are withholding the suspects identity for the moment citing an active investigation. Offering little in the way of further details.

However, sources involved in the investigation have been quoted stating that "none of the stolen property was found on the body of the suspect, and that the possibility of accomplices is being investigated".

In the meantime, the police have attempted to cut off access to the several blocks that suspect may have had access to during his brief escape from the Exchange. As a sweep of the area is undertaken.

Posted by CalliLurk on Thursday 22 June 2017 - 12:20:36
Across News outlets, newspapers Television and select magazines (Business, tech and to a lesser extent Construction) of the newest addition to the LA skyline being opened up!

“Renraku Tower, the newest building to be added to the LA Skyline has just opened its doors today to both the general public and to establishing business ventures looking to get their hands on prized Downtown floorspace. Said to be the most technologically advanced building to date with some of the best in Green Technology and security systems incorporated into its whole, much of which developed by Renraku itself.

Up for rent so far are ten floors of high tech, modern apartments that are disappearing right quick as well as another ten floors of premium office space ready to go and spaces are filling up fast!

With the completion of the building and its subsequent opening, the corporation is expected to deliver a noticeable boost to the local economy."

Other less interesting details are included in this, including a small statement from a spokesperson. Included along with these articles which focus on slightly different aspects, are photos of an apartment interior that are fairly up to date and refined. Including shots of the small balcony fitted Gardens that are highly prevalent throughout.

In other parts of the Papers, advertisements for job positions have started to open up in the private security sector, sales and low level research and development assistants.


Anyone interested in checking into any of this, Send me a PM! This is also open to all. Not just Hengeyokai!)

A Notice to the Amenti
Posted by Vil on Monday 05 June 2017 - 18:34:37
:::The following notice is posted in Ancient Greek and Egyptian, originally on the doorstep of the mosque, but it was quickly found by a cultist and rushed into the temple:::

Toddlers: Ask yourselves how it is that the Reborn, who called themselves 'Shemsu-heru', ancient and extinct, save for your so-called 'Revered One's, once vastly outnumbered the Cabiri, how they hunted us, and how, in the passing of the Malestrom, there are now no Shemsu-heru mummies, yet we persist. As you do, remember that Greece broke Egypt and know that your own persistence brought upon you the hell to come. Nowhere is safe for you.


Aliens in Los Angeles?
Posted by Vil on Thursday 18 May 2017 - 11:49:49
*In a yellow press paper for the more tinfoil hat people this article appeared*

HAVE THE ALIENS BEGUNN THE INVASION?

Yesterday, a we heard the news of a blue light from the forrest.
[Newspaper Name] was the first to investigate. this is our exclusive report.
We folowed a call of a young couple that saw a bright blue light in the distance. when we aproached we found a hole in a huge rock, a hole in the side of a tree and a big crater. as well as goo and traced of a huge animal
Dr Edmund Porters expert for extra terestrials had this to say :

"This is clearly a sign of a space shuttle from the aliens.
An egg spo to speak the goo is, i assume, part of its rapid metamorhisis.
We can only now be vigilant until the Beast in the LA Forrest can be detained and analyzed."

The police had this to say on the matter.

"Aliens, there are no Aliens. Scientist assisting on the matter told us it was probably an asteroid that hit the forrest. There is nothing to worry about."

Church Fire Shocks Neighborhood ---- tonight at 11

[On the evening news]

Anchor: We have Diane live on the scene of a startling event. Diane?

Diane: Yes, Thank you, Ryan. St. Alexandria's Church, a landmark for the community, burned down late this evening. By the time firefighters arrived on the scene, there was very little left. They were able to find the bodies of the remaining Clergy there, but there were no survivors. The community... is devastated.

Random Man: Yeah, uh, like... I didn't see much, but all of a sudden it was on fire. Father O'Halloran, he's been REAL good to us over the years. Damned shame what happened.

Random Woman: I never went to the church, but I always loved hearing the bells on Sunday morning. It's heartbreaking, is what it is.

Diane's voice over random pictures of the church before and after the fire: The community is reaching out to help the families of the victims, and to try to rebuild the Church, but it will take a small miracle to make that happen. Arson is still being ruled out as a cause. Back to you, Ryan.

----REPORT END----

STARTLING FIRE AND POWER OUTAGE ROCKS PASADENA

A. Rogers

The site of what was a booming industry of food trucks and festivities turned dark this past Tuesday night, when a power outage sparked what police are calling an accidental grease fire at the Make Mine Mac truck. One of the more popular attractions of the food truck industry, Make Mine Mac was founded by Angela Hawkins in 2004, and has been booming ever since with such unique flavors of macaroni and cheese as jalapeno cheddar and garlic goat cheese.

The fire seemed to burn from the inside of the truck, but the damage destroyed the little business from the inside out. It seems no one was inside, some small mercy.

Local businesses are gathering together funds to help Hawkins rebuild her little mobile kitchen, and fans of the business are chipping in as well. We will see if it's enough to get it back into business, and back into our hearts...
