Nik’s Frankenstory ’09

(This was my entry when I first test drove this idea with a few friends in 2009) I barely notice the crunch of leaves as my foot hits the pavement.  I’m breathing hard. I can feel my heart beating against my chest. My thoughts are pounding in my head. It’s a cold night. When the sun went down, it took all the warmth of the world with it. I can see my breath. I pull my chin down to try to keep my neck from freezing. There’s no one on the street. I look left then right, and I’m alone. The peace that sometimes accompanies moments like these is not coming now. I push my hands deeper into my pockets and keep walking. I look up, startled for a moment as the street lamp turns off in as I walk towards it. If there’s a sensor, isn’t it supposed to turn on when I get close? The light turning off made me feel… sinister. My hands are cold, my head is spinning.  A dog starts barking at me startling me again, it’s behind a fence, good thing too, it’s big and looks really angry. I didn’t even see it until… [ Read More ]

No Day After Tomorrow

the-day-after-tomorrow-cover

I was watching the movie The Day After Tomorrow on TV the other day.  The movie depicts a monumental climate change that causes Earth to go into its next ice age.  Twenty minutes in, the video starts cutting in and out.  Fearing it was my TV dying I changed the channel but it seemed that the picture was only going in and out for this one movie.  Making it even stranger was the fact that the picture cut in and out when the actors were saying big lines from the movie.  Almost as if the lines themselves were meant to hold some deeper meaning to the intent of this attack. At a meeting the lead scientist played by Dennis Quaid explains the dangers…. “I think we’ve hit a critical desalinization point,” he says as the picture flickers a bit. Later, Sam, Dennis Quaid’s son in the movie, has a crush on this girl but he is afraid to tell her.  It seems another boy is interested in her too.  He talks with his academic decathlon teammate about it. “Man you’ve got some serious competition,” his teammate says. Sam shakes it off, “Please!” “And I’ll bet he’s really rich too,” says… [ Read More ]

I sit on a couch telling a man about a dream, all very Freudian really. He asks about a dream I had when I was young, it reoccurred for many years of my life, he asks me to describe it to him. This is third time I have seen him. He has an office in the big building down off Queens Street, its tall and there aren’t many rooms to rent, in fact I’m not sure if there are any other offices in use. The room itself is comfortable; it’s darker beige in colour, high ceilings, leather furniture, a big mahogany captain’s desk at the far end of the room. Next to a bookshelf against the back wall is a door, likely to a closet and the light is always warm and inviting. I sit comfortable leaning back on the soft leather of the chez and start into the dream. I am seven years old and I am playing with other children, we are inside, but not in a room, a long hallway that bends round. There are tall walls all around and they are made of steel, the kind you can make out reflections in, but they are distorted… [ Read More ]

Y vino para no ausentarse.

He de confesar que no me lo esperaba y es, quizá, en esos momentos, cuando todo nos da un vuelco. La sorpresa y el desconocimiento lograron que el efecto fuese aún mayor de que lo que hubiese sido normalmente. Y desde que llegó, mi vida no ha vuelto a ser la misma. El miedo me ha cambiado por completo. Yo no conocía el miedo. Y con esto no quiero decir que haya sido o sea aguerrido o más decidido que el resto del vulgo. Quiero decir simplemente que no se me había presentado jamás ocasión alguna en la que tuviese que enfrentarme a algo temible. En esa etapa de mi vida las palabras temor, miedo o pavor no tenían mayor significado para mí que el atribuido por los personajes de los libros que leía, o más bien devoraba, entre horas y antes de irme a la cama todas las noches. Digamos que tenían un alcance abstracto, intangible y vaporoso, como el amor de la adolescencia, que es siempre un amor inconsciente y descuidado por cuánto hay de desconocimiento; desconocimiento de lo que nunca será, de la incompatibilidad, la infidelidad, el engaño, la decepción y lo importante que es encontrar algo… [ Read More ]

Missing parts.

“Can you run the tests again?” “We’ve run them three times. The results have been the same every time.” “But there has to be something wrong!” “Not with the test results…” “What’s that supposed to mean?!” “I’m just saying that the tests are accurate, and were accurate all three times we ran them.” “Well, that doesn’t leave me with many options now… does it?” “… no.” “You’re sure there’s not just something broken or out of alignment? Something that can be repaired or replaced?” “No… it’s just… not there. As far as I can tell, it’s never been there.” “What? What do you mean?” “When you were assembled, something must have gone wrong…” “… and this part…” “Was left out of you… yes.” “but I’ve never noticed  that it  missing!” “You’ve never had it… how could you miss it?” “It’s something every other unit has…“ “Yes, but it’s not visible. And you can function without it.” “But I can’t function without it. That’s why I’m here!” “What I meant was that you can go through your every day and not miss it.” “Yes, but that’s not what I was built for, was it?” “…” “This is why I haven’t been… [ Read More ]
