Pronunciation Book apparently used to just be that — a youtube channel with a guy pronouncing words, sometimes phrases.  And then these cryptic entries showed up — 1 min long rather than 10 seconds, with “How to” titles.  If you listen, the first sentence corresponds, and then is followed by a second, more cryptic sentence.  (See above)  The channel then went back to its regular broadcasts, with the exception of one more “How to”: “How to Say Sorry to Your Girlfriend” — I’m sorry that I let you do this to me.  I’m sorry that we tried to be young heroes.

And then back to normal … until two weeks ago.  The guide was for “77”, but the voice said: Something is going to happen in 77 days. These are the messages since then, each followed by the warning and countdown of days:

76: I’ve been trying to tell you something for 1,183 days.

75: I’m awake now. Things are clearing up. I’m not saying the words anymore.

74: I’ve got a minute, let me tell you what I think is going on.

73: Tension between the districts has spiked in the last few months. 

72: You can see it in the markets. Everyone’s ready for a storm. 

71: They’re singing a new song in the streets of the Zone.

70: I have plenty of information to keep me company. 

69: No one is ready. He watches the market.

68: I’m not talking about a disaster. I’m talking about a love triangle. 

67: We fell into the jungle for a summer of dollar crime.

66: We were young heroes, gorgeous liars.

65: Turn off the lights, and drink a cold glass of water.

64: No one is singing. Every day is the same.

63: We should have listened to Chief.
