I picked a bad day to quit sniffing glue.
SHON AND TOM: a short play in one act
SHON AND TOM
A short play in one act
Tom, a basketball coach
Shon, a television color commentator
SHON: "Yes. Yes, Tom. What is it Tom."
T: "I just had a thought Shon."
S: "What is that thought Tom."
T: "There are millions of planets and some of them have life, Shon. Inevitably some of these societies are millions of years more advanced than ours. They have not visited. There is no evidence of their existence. We dream of traveling the stars, but we cannot. Otherwise someone would have visited us.
"The reason we have not been visited by any of these societies is that it is simply not possible. Physics is a dead end, Shon."
S: "But what about when the sun…"
T: "All of this dies, Shon. We have an expiration date. Physics is a dead end."
S: "Physics is a dead end."
T: "I have a great sadness all about me, Shon. It overwhelms my being. It is as if we already do not exist."
Brian picked a good day to start. Awesome screenshot.
Mack yourself a pro slick, lay graymattah back. Lotta performers down not tak'in T.C.B'in man...
Tom Crean hangs out around gymnasiums.
No really, he does.
I really hope we can eventually visit other stars
I don't think you'd want to visit a star. It may be a tad warm. Planets, moons, maybe. Stars, not so much.
Well. this does explain the expression on his face better than anything else, other than "Oh shit, I just realized I left my computer on with the browser open. "
This is the greatest thing I ever saw. Posts like this are why I love Mgoblog. Thank you Brian, sincerely and deeply. I want to thank you deeply. So deeply and meaningfully. With so many adverbs. I thank you adverbly.
The only thing this is missing is the artsy "FIN" at the end.
That, and changing Tom's name to Thom.
Shon: Morrissey is on tour this year.
Tom: Excellent. I am bright and cheerful when juxtaposed with Morrissey.
Shon: Meat is Murder, Tom.
....i don't get it
JON: Escape can be found within the mind, where we can be all, and exist both before and after ourselves. Join me as we pursue a new existence.
JON: While we have, indeed, won. Others must lose.
That looks like Ron Silver always seen talking to Tom on the sidelines ?
Isn't it more terrifying to gaze upon Tom and realize, given the astronomical probabilities involved in bringing us to this moment, that *we* may be our own most advanced form?
If you superimpose Eminem side by side from the UTL2 halftime when he was trolling the country, I swear it would be the identical facial expression as Crean. Wow.
Dafuq did I just read?
history is a wheel, tom, for the nature of man is fundamentally unchanging; what has happened before will perforce happen again
