Dick Clark was a television presenter of the shows American Bandstand, Pyramid and most famously, hosting the New Year’s Eve countdown at Times Square. His trademark sign-off was "For now, Dick Clark — so long!", accompanied with a military salute. On Bandstand and New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, he introduced many new and rising artists to the people. He was also one of the first to bring black and white performers and audiences together in one event. Clark suffered a stroke in December 2004. With speech ability still impaired, Clark returned to his New Year's Rockin' Eve show a year later on December 31, 2005. From 2006 onwards, Ryan Seacrest handled most of the host duties and continues to do so even after Clark’s death in 2012.


The microphone seems to be attracted to anywhere there’s a party and when it can’t find one, it makes one. The surrounding area will become filled with decorations and confetti sprinkling everywhere, attracting people. They will become extremely festive and will celebrate for no reason with absolute strangers. Nearby television and radio signals become fixated on the party, broadcasting it to more people. At this point, some of the people there become reporters, commenting on the celebrations, the performing artists and reporting to the “host”. Popular songs that year can be heard blaring from every available speaker, while unknown musicians within the crowd perform for the masses.

Although fun, some caution is required. When used for a long enough period, the user will suffer from a stroke. The damage will not be as severe or long lasting as a normal stroke, but it will limit their ability to move and speak. They will usually have to continue or cede their control to someone else; otherwise, the party will stop as suddenly as it started.
