The newest addition to #StrangerThings arrived in Season 4 with the intensity of a 10-ton Metallica riff when Eddie Munson jumped on a table in the Hawkins High cafeteria and proclaimed that forced conformity was “the real monster!”

It was clear then that Munson, played by Joseph Quinn, was a different sort of misfit among the other ‘80s-era AV club nerds we’ve come to know and love since the series debuted six years ago.

Munson, who is called a “loser” and demonized by many in Hawkins, plays a critical role in fighting the show’s true villain, Vecna.

Now is the time to stop reading if you have not finished #StrangerThings4Vol2.

If you have finished, more from Quinn ⬇️
"That first scene where you meet [Eddie], he’s so ostentatious ...

"You see the antithesis of this character in the first episode. [The Duffer Brothers] wrote it so empathetically, and it was so savvy in playing with archetypes," Quinn said.

Quinn said he didn't know about Eddie's fate when he was offered the part.

"I remember Skyping with the brothers before I signed on, and they weren’t giving away very much."

When filming the big fight with the demobats, Quinn said, "It was a weird day at work."

"It was so funny. You get these hilarious instructions from Matt and Ross, like '... and bat! And bat! And broom!'" the British actor recalled.

Quinn said he and the Duffers were bracing themselves for the end of the season and how fans will react.

"I feel incredibly touched by the reception that Eddie’s gotten," he said.

The growing dominance of two new ultra-contagious Omicron subvariants is prolonging a wave of coronavirus cases in California & sparking growing concerns from health officials that coming weeks could see significant spread and increased hospitalizations.

BA.4 and BA.5 are now believed to be responsible for most new infections nationwide. The strains are of particular concern because they are not only especially contagious but also capable of reinfecting those who have survived earlier Omicron infection.

When it comes to BA.4 & BA.5, their “superpower is reinfection,” said Dr. Peter Chin-Hong, an infectious-disease expert.

"There’s strong evidence they can spread even faster than other subvariants,” said L.A. County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer.

At least five people are dead and 19 were taken to hospitals after a shooting at a July Fourth parade in a Chicago suburb, and officers are searching for a suspect, police said Monday.

Video shot by a Sun-Times journalist after the gunfire rang out shows a band on a float continuing to play as people run past, screaming. A photo posted to social media appeared to show pools of blood near upturned chairs in downtown Highland Park.

Gina Troiani and her son were lined up with his daycare class ready to walk onto the parade route when she heard a loud sound that she believed was fireworks — until she heard people yell about a shooter.

Roger Owens has sold and pitched peanuts since Dodger Stadium opened in 1962, and at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum before then. But now, tossing the bags is a no-no. latimes.com/sports/dodgers…
Owens has pitched peanuts at presidential inauguration festivities, on “The Tonight Show,” and in movies and TV series, in the role of peanut vendor. His wedding guests included then-Mayor Tom Bradley and Hall of Fame pitcher Don Sutton. latimes.com/sports/dodgers…
Owens is not defiant. He's sad. He loves his job. He just struggles to understand why a bag of peanuts is a problem. latimes.com/sports/dodgers… Image

Police are responding to a shooting at a July Fourth parade in a Chicago suburb, authorities said.

Authorities have not officially reported any casualties, but witnesses described seeing bloodied bodies apparently covered with blankets.

The parade began around 10 a.m. but was suddenly halted 10 minutes later after shots were fired. Several witnesses told the newspaper that they heard gunfire, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Hundreds of parade-goers — some visibly bloodied — fled the parade route, leaving behind chairs, baby strollers and blankets.

Police told people: “Everybody disperse, please. It is not safe to be here.”
