Friday HYPERSHORTS… 1-page SciFi Stories launch exclusively here on the VlogBlog…

Ok, we’re trying something new here, people. Every Friday, we’ll be posting a 1-Page “SciFi Pitch” for your perusal. Read ’em up and let us know what you think.

“ALIEN”   by Anthony Lawrence (Fireball Pop)

“But where did you come from?” asked Professor Rigney, as he confronted the alien in the secured laboratory. He was still reeling from disbelief as he stared at the very humanoid creature that had emerged from the spaceship only hours ago.

She seemed to be a very attractive young black girl with flowers in her hair, wearing what appeared to be a pearl necklace and beaded anklet just below her flowing white robe.

The Professor of ancient languages had been astounded that she could speak English, but he had also been fascinated by the vertical ichthys on the anklet that had a special meaning in ancient religions. Ichthys is Greek for fish, known today as the Christian Fish symbol. 

“The Goldilocks Zone,” she replied with a charmingly wry grin, “not too hot, not too cold.  It’s 12 light years from here and its star is known to you as Tau Ceti.”

The Professor was astonished. “Yes, yes, it’s visible from here to the naked eye and perhaps six times the size of earth. I can’t believe this. You’ve come from Tau Ceti?”

The alien didn’t seem nearly as excited about her arrival.

“Oh, I’ve been here before,” she said simply.

The Professor regarded her narrowly, his words a slightly hoarse inquisitive whisper with a just a touch of sarcasm.

“You mean like ‘Ancient astronauts’?”

The alien grinned again, regarding the Professor as if he were a schoolchild who had asked an inane question.

“I’m afraid you’ve been reading too much paleocontact hypotheses. My earlier arrival just over two thousand years ago would have been a bit of future shock in a spaceship but in this time period it seemed quite appropriate. ‘Star Wars’ and all that.”

The Professor was stunned.

 “ This is incredible. But why are you here? What is your mission?”

“It’s quite simple, really,” she said patiently and gently, “our contact influences the development of human cultures, technologies, and religions.”

“Is that all?” asked the professor, with just a bit more of that cynicism creeping into his voice. “Do you have a name?”

“Of course,” said the alien. “Some of your people have known my name for centuries. It’s Jesus.”

Car Movies way are in…

Normally, you get two or three good car movies a year. But this is outta control in a way that shows that the Automotive Culture wants serious machinery in action. Um, …that would be you guys. So, that’s what we and the studios are doing to make sure you get that action. Which one’s are you looking forward to?

The sheer number of car films coming out, let alone what’s in the future pike is overwhelming. And I’m lovin’ every second of it. So, here’s a few posters of some of them. Hit my Poster Alley on Facebook for a complete viewing, but here’s what’s coming so far. FASTER, FAST FIVE, GREEN HORNET, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 4, DRIVE ANGRY, PRIEST, TRON LEGACY, MACHETE, CAPTAIN AMERICA, HANGOVER 2, TRANSFORMERS 3, WRECKED and even the ALIEN PREQUEL that Ridley Scott is now prepping with Natalie Portman has an automotive element. And this list will be different tomorrow!
