Good ones,Tim.

 

Sir...you can only order what you see on the menu!

But... all that you offer are bananas!

That is correct, sir.

Bakster was running though a dark house and Tim wearing an ape mask was chasing him trying to stab him with a razor sharp Icarus model...

Timmy... the jig is up. Now eveyone knows why Bakster mysteriously did an update. It was for fear of Timmy stabbing him with a pointy Icarus. Lol.

Awesome dream there Gam. Too funny.

So, here's the deal...... We have made it to 18,000 view's. But, thing's have gotten a bit "muddled" as to which Planet of the Ape's were actually talking about.....

Let's continue to be "Confused" about it.

I give you the first Ape's crossover....

EDIT: since it sometime's take's a bit for other's to "Catch-up" on this thread, I found this really neat reastaraunt to hang out in...

A brief "Side trip" to the Red Dwarf Spacecraft...

They also spent at least two season's of the show, stuck on the "Life boat"...

Now I'm going to HAVE to watch the serie's again ( I seem to recall ,that I only made it to season 5 or so ...)

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage".

Oh lol, I've never even seen 'Red Dwarf'. I really do want to see it sometime though, it sounds pretty funny.

Well, the BBC thought so--there are 12 seasons of it.  Most of which are on Netflix (I think).

In some ways it's classic BBC comedy--a premise that needs vast sums for post-production and SFX and the like, and the Beeb gave them £156 6/ 2d and said, "Here, makes us a show!"

I first started watching it as a Saturday comedy show on the Houston PBS channel, a kajillion years ago.  The local PBS here in Dallas has a fan base for it (which they routinely peeve by starting and stopping a run of the show).

It's silly, the effects are campy, it can be very British with its references, but still funny even if you do not know who Biggles is, or the sorts of scaial stuff associated with English Public Schools (which are private boarding schools).

But, one thing alway's bothered me about "the cat guy". On the show , it was said that he " Evolved" from the ship's cat, over the course of 10,000 year's ........ HOW ???

Messrs Grant and Naylor have explained that there was more than one cat on board, but, the BBC did not want to go with that idea.  So, it was changed to Dave Lister's cat was pregnant when he went into stasis.

The cats did there thing and were fruitful and multiplied.  Eventually, they became sentinent (which probably helped get food from the vending machines).  Having become sentient, they realized ther ewas more to life than gamboling about in an empty minimg ship, so, they all left.  Except for the one vain cat , who was left behind when Lister comes out of stasis.

BTW: I watched the original Halloween last night and had the strangest dream:

Bakster was running though a dark house and Tim wearing an ape mask was chasing him trying to stab him with a razor sharp Icarus model...

And Captain Mac was Doctor Loomis...

Doctor Captain Mac:  'I met LittleTimmy, 15 years ago; I was told there was nothing left; no reason, no conscience, no understanding in even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, of good or evil, right or wrong. I met this... six-year-old child with this blank, pale, emotionless face, and... the blackest eyes - the Devil's eyes.

So much so that Bakster is writing short stories. LOL.

 

Actually, I think your writing skills are pretty good. Very descriptive.

Being late to this thread, I've not gotten the Time magazine cover figured out yet. Where'd it come from? (Yes, I haven't gotten around to reading this whole thread or even going back a few pages ......yet. Color me lazy)

Thanks, Greg. I thought it might be fun to go on that tangent. And, truthfully-- it WAS. But--it is probably more so the case for me. I tell you this though: I think that it helped me get past the builders block I was struggling with. None the less--I shall try to curtail them. I think that for this thread, it is more lead, than balloon.

My friend--I would not wish that on you. Don't feel obiligated. If you are extremely bored one day--you might check it closer, you might find some enjoyment in it. Clearly--one needs to be in the mood for it.

Planet of Cats- it's probably named Ulthar. Yow, true horror!!! If don't get the reference it's probably not worth looking up.  

 

I haven't seen Red Dwarf in Forever ! ( I use to love that show !)

But, one thing alway's bothered me about "the cat guy". On the show , it was said that he " Evolved" from the ship's cat, over the course of 10,000 year's ........ HOW ???

Does this mean that he's been alive the whole time ???

Or did the cat breed with " something" , and evolve into something else, and then That "something" breed with something .... ECT...ECT...

( OH NO !!!! Now I went and interrupted the time continueum / Parallelum ...... My head hurt's ... )

 

Oh lol, I've never even seen 'Red Dwarf'. I really do want to see it sometime though, it sounds pretty funny. 

I was joking about the H.P. Lovecraft story 'The Cats of Ulthar'. You have a couple who hated cats and were always mean to them. One night all the cats in the village laid seige to their house and the next morning the couple had vanished and were never seen again. But all the cats in the village looked really fat and happy the next day...

Apperently, this is the only vending machine that has them......

Laughing. Ah well. Maybe next time. 

I'm gonna blame Greg for not showing up earlier. He could have ran an intervention.

Lol... I was wondering if a reward was coming. You didn't fail me. I love It! Did you make that up? I should print and frame it!  No joke. I could hang it above my bench as a motivator. It could see me through the build and when I'm done in 2025.

No, I didn't make that. I found it Burried on page 19 of a Planet of the ape's page.... somewhere....

I am off work today, having a new furnace installed. Of course--the workers are in the dungeon where my work bench is. That leaves me with not much to do. So, I might as well add a new chapter to my crazy story.

A Time for Reflection

I muse at seeing the three of them work. But, as much as I am enjoying their penance... it's time for a walk. We will camp here for the night and I thought we could explore some.

"Come on Nova, let's go for a walk." I help her up, the both of us are still a bit wobbly. 

The area is sort of a horseshoe shape. There is the sea, the beach, and then a long and towering range of rock cliffs that hem us in. Access to the cove is open from the direction we came but continuing on is blocked by this same formation that curves into the sea. Cornelius told me that the only way around that is to wait for low tide. If we hug the shore line at low tide, access opens up just beyond. This will occur in the morning.

Not to be too much of a jerk--I help with preparations. Nova and I begin collecting driftwood that we can use for the evening fire. Before we know it, the sun begins to set low, setting off the most awesome red and orange sky I have ever seen. I don't know why, but this gets me to reflect on what we are about to do. I question the wisdom of heading off into the desert and taking another soul with me. Deep concern washes over me. 

The night is clear, and the stars are amazing. I can only dream of nights like this back home. The fire is raging, and I look on the faces of those around me. They all have a somber look to them. As if, we all know what the future has in store. I keep gravitating back to Cornelius because he has the look of someone that has something to say.

Bakster: Cornelius? Is something on your mind?

Looking a bit dumbfounded...he replied: "Well... yes. I do. I want to apologize for today. We put you in jeopardy, and I am sorry for that."

All three of them nodded in agreement, all looking remorseful.

Wow! I didn't see that coming. Maybe there is hope for these apes. Yes 

Bakster: We survived. I should thank you for what you have done for us. You'll be in trouble for that. So, thank you!

Zira's face lights up: "Bright Eyes, you are welcome."

Cornelius: What about you? Is something on your mind? You look troubled.

Bakster: Cornelius--what do you think about taking Nova with you and back to her tribe?

Cornelius: We can't do that. It would be much too dangerous for her. If the gorillas recapture her, and they will, they will certainly kill her. The gorillas don't take kindly to fugitive humans. I am sorry. The only option for you two is to leave this area.

Bakster: I see. 

Not much more is said. The night is getting cold to our backs, even with the blazing fire. Zira brings out some pelts to warm Nova. Soon after we retire for the night.

********** End of transmission *********

Furnace guys just left.
