Tarantino’s Zombie Apocalypse

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]«Run! Run! Run!!!! For Christ’s sake!»
«Over there! There is a barn we can lock ourselves in to buy some time!»
A group of people enter the barn, the gates are closed and secured and Dr. Whiteman checks if everyone escaped successfully the attack of 3 (really slow) zombies.
«It seems like everyone made it, that is good.»

«Now, we need a plan. There are only a few infected people out there, we can still solve this.»
There is a big table and everyone is gathered around it as a light is turned on and a map laid down.

«Ok, now that we are less scared and more focused, it’s time to get a better understanding of the situation. Jim please give me that piece of brain you collected from the injured one.»
Jim takes a plastic bag from his backpack and gives it to Dr Whiteman.
«Thanks Jim.»

«Listen, I am sure we CAN still save them. It is just the beginning and if we stop it now we will be able to prevent it from happening again.»
The doctor’s attempt to lift the spirits works and the atmosphere becomes more relaxed.

«Does anyone here have a camera? One fancy reflex or something similar would be perfect.»
One of the girls reluctantly puts a shiny new camera on the table.

«Thank you. Since I don’t have any medical equipment I want to try a simple thing. I will put some brain material inside the camera’s lens and add some water to use as enlargement agent. Maybe I can find out some information.»

As Dr Whiteman looks into the camera, the only thing he can see is a blurred greenish pattern but with some effort and eye squeezing a blueprint starts to appear, similar to a miniaturised chemical formula.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image media=”73018″ media_width_percent=”100″][vc_column_text]«I can see some symbols! There is a hourglass at the center and radiating from it some other graphic elements I cannot recognise.. Wait! I see also a leaf and.. A word? It starts with a T.. looks like ‘Tarantula’ but I’m not sure.. it’s so blur-»

Dr Whiteman suddenly stops talking. Everything in his body stops.
He looks away from the camera and at someone in front of him at the other side of the table.

«Tarantino! What does this mean? Are you involved in this? Why is your name showing up?!»

Everyone looks at Tarantino and as he smirks with no sign of shock he says:
«Well, yes. I am involved and I can tell you there is no way you can stop this, it’s irreversible.»

«Why?!?!»
Dr Whiteman yells while all the others are in a terrified silence.

«I needed some good material for my next movie and this was the best way to study the realism of a very unlikely situation.»

Silence.

«I promise I will put your names in the end titles.»

The End.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator sep_color=”accent”][vc_column_text]

Holographic Horses & Guns

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Damn! Where the hell am I? Why is this guy looking at me like a scaredy-cat that lost his mouse?

«Excuse me Sergeant, should we proceed?»

Sergeant? Mh.. wait a minute, we are dressed like military people. Well.. I am dressed like a cool one, a “top of the hierarchy” one. He is on a lower level for sure.

While I slowly start to make sense of my surroundings I understand that I am a military instructor and this petulant boy is my assigned student.

«Yes we can proceed» I answer as I push a futuristic-like remote control I see in my hand.

I have no idea where I am and who I am but that’s ok, I’ll just go with the flow and trust my body memory for what I need to do. If I am here in this position it can’t be by mistake.

While I wait to see what happens next I take a look at the room and, woah! This place is huge!

It reminds me of a gymnasium but it’s full of small desks. For each one an instructor and a student.. This must be some kind of one-to-one lesson of crucial importance. What a perfect time to forget who I am. Well done brain. Thanks.

As I think that my brain could choose a better day to trick me, I see some shiny metal things coming out of a door in group of 4 and aligning at each desk. The more I look at them the more they remind me of something that I know but that isn’t quite what it should be… Wait, what?? They look like horse hoofs! That’s what they are! And they are also moving like that is a horse above them but I can’t see anything.. Just these black metallic hoofs “walking”!

I look at my student for a hint and then back at them and BAM! Now I can see a horse! What the hell?? Looks like a real horse for a split second and then for some reason my eyes tell me that is an holographic rendition of the animal. I can clearly see the structure of light that creates the illusion.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image media=”73006″ media_width_percent=”100″][vc_column_text]This is truly fascinating and I feel excited for a moment.. Until my body moves on its own, grabs the holographic horse with a special tool I can’t really describe, and lays it flat on my desk.

How can a horse fit on a desk? Well it’s holographic.. I guess it shrinked?

I am astonished that it makes sense and it doesn’t at the same time.

Next automatic move that I can see my body doing without me even thinking is traumatic. I cut open the freakin’ mini-holo-horse (I should copyright this) and a giant blob of black ink comes out of it. Yeah, great, fantastic.

Unpleasant to say the least.

Again I surprise myself because like if all of the above wasn’t enough, I dig my way through the ink, I find a disassembled gun and I assemble it in less than 5 seconds.

«See? Easy.» I say to my shocked student.

No freakin’ idea of what I just did but I knew it was cool so I guess… I played it cool.
