There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

Spongebob may never be the same at this point...even though it had suffered from the "Simpsons' Syndrome" at one point, Stephen tried to return to improve the quality. RIP.

As the first president elected in my lifetime, the elder Bush will always be somewhat special for me.  And while he'll likely only be judged by history as average, he always did have a likeability to him even when making impossible promises on no new taxes.

Larry "The Axe" Hennig, a four-time AWA World Tag Team Champion, has passed away at age 82 due to renal failure. Although his own in-ring career was cut short due to injury, his legacy lived on through his son--the late "Mr. Perfect" Curt Hennig--and his grandson, current WWE Superstar Curtis Axel.
