Ahoy, dear friends. I shan't keep you this week, for there is little rest for the wicked.

      Traffic through our vaults continues to flow, and I’m informed that the playful prompts that accompany these communiques are guiding hordes of fresh faces to some of its darkest corners. It’s a delight to share that by way of these modest advertisements, many visitors are for the first time discovering MPC experiences that fill a specifically particular, yet amorphously peculiar hole in

their entertainment schedule. Indeed, we continue to offer our wares to a discerning clientele, and invite those who are curious to join their ranks. Mysteries of the murder variety appear to be the flavor of the month. Rather befitting one has to imagine, given April’s cruel nature. Still, it draws to a close and is almost over. Better to ignore the wasteland just a little longer, and have a little fun instead.

      May beckons!

An open rebellion, a refusal to obey - sounds like mutiny. 235 years ago this week, the Royal Navy saw the most infamous of maritime rebellions: that which occurred aboard the HMS Bounty. Disaffected crewmen led by acting-Lieutenant Fletcher Christian seized control of the ship in the South Pacific Ocean, setting Captain William Bligh and  

18 loyalists adrift in a small boat. The former captain and his companions sailed more than 4000 miles to safety and put the wheels of military justice in motion, while the mutineers aboard the bounty settled on Tahiti and Pitcairn Island. Descendants of the mutineers and their accompanying Tahitians live on Pitcairn into the 21st century.

“April is the cruelest month, breeding Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing Memory and desire, stirring Dull roots with spring rain. Winter kept us warm, covering Earth in forgetful snow, feeding A little life with dried tubers.”

– The Waste Land, T. S. Eliot
