As a heads up Holly's audio is a little weird; I cleaned it up the best I know how but wanted to let folks know in case it bothers them.

Yes, the moving picture business is booming in Holy Wood! Literally film stock is exploding, and how could it not with hot talent like Victor Maraschino and Dolores De Syn--those actors you definitely know who definitely didn't get fired. Meanwhile the wizards at the University find a weird vase.
