Bad Universe! Bad Bad Universe! Sit!

This timescape is spoiled,
Riddled with inconsistencies,
Deworming needed.

Bzzzzz!

Something is happening to the bees, they appear to be dying out, dissapearing. Allegedly no dead bees can be found - maybe they are eaten, maybe they are moving to a new planet?


Honey bees fly around me
The last batch on their way to Mars
Buzzing a bye-bye!

Shores of Titan

Something that came to my mind while I was making some herbal tea... Treat it gently, it's just a brain dump... Peh.. Heheh.



The explorer walked slowly. His power was ebbing, despair encompassing his mind.
One step... And an other step... The hill he was climbing seemed extremely steep. He dragged himself as as fast as he could - which wasn't much, with the environmental suit weighing him down. His heavy footsteps were marking the frozen landscape as far as one could see.

Slushy snow was not an easy terrain to follow.

He stumbled and fell. He was scared that the suit would rupture. The poisonous atmosphere would kill him within minutes. The pressure was far too low, the gas was far too deadly. He couldn't stand up immediately. He turned over and watched the sky for a couple of minutes, catching is breath. His gas was about to run out, he should have taken it easier but he was too scared. The muddy-brown sky didn't comfort him. He missed the shiny shimmering blueness he was used to.

Slowly he forced himself to his feet, it was painful. His body hated him, it wasn't supposed to be treated like this. The exoskeleton had failed late in the exploration and he had to walk using his own legs all the way back. His communication equipment had failed too, when he fell of a cliff, tumbling down, breaking the antennae as he rolled down. His friends did not know exactly where he was but he had a good sense of direction - one of the reasons why he was chosen for the mission.

The mission was supposed to end hours ago, he was supposed to be back at the base, having a lunch with his friends, colleagues, lovers - joking, having fun. Instead he was out in the deadly, alien landscape, trying his best to survive.

He forced himself over the ridge and the lovely view made his hearts race. The lake was just in front of him, blue and beautiful. He ran down the hill, straight into the beach, and then jumped into the lake. Then he kicked his feet and swam deep below, towards his friends, his home.

The Scope

An owl hoots smoothly
While the OWLT tracks the stars
In a velvet sky


OK, I know, bad pun...

Stagefright!

Electric guitars catch fire
Drums explode, keyboards crackle
but the Android sings on

RoboCafe

A nice, crowded cafe
Androids mulling around, gazing into the infinity
with a mug of synth-oil

CafeMoon

Mug in my hand,
Looking out of the portal
- Earthshine

Solaris

I am listening to the excellent BBC audio adaptation of Solaris. Brilliant and spooky.


An impossibility
A garden in the ocean
Tended by ghosts

Methane mining is a dangerous business

Fiery pretty fires
The little red asteroid in the sky
Refinery accident

2007 Spying Said to Cost $50 Billion

Not much of a scifaiku but regardless...

Looking over my shoulder, running,
I stumble. I am scared.
It is following me relentlessly
The monster with the Red Electric Eye

Superspy

Confused aliens -
Under cover Operator hiding
In the nano black hole

dark ages and the alien

Three gold pieces lie on the ground
the price for the alien's head, all shriveled and tiny

The horoscope reads:
Virgo: Do not leave your galaxy today,
Likely to meet new faces

horoscope: your day will suck

The spaceship pilot is pleasantly suprised
to find himself basking in the glory of the Tarantula Nebula.
Then - a supernova explodes - what a rotten luck

Autumn in Venus

The hot spell ends
With a refreshing rain
of hydrochloric acid

seppuku and daki-kubi

A swing of the plasma sword
Tendons, meat and bone all cleanly cut
A honourable death for the space samurai

First step in cybernetics

Offered a new heart
And a new eye to go with it
A new body - a new life

Marooned

In the methane snowstorm
I cannot see anything and the radio is dead
I die - a lonely death on Titan

Rise of the Machines(TM)

Robots of the Second Empire
Dancing to the tune which the Electric Orchestra plays precisely
Then - one robot missteps - oh the horror!

thinking about burning Chrome

My bloody eyes hurt
Wish I had the Zeiss Ikon eyes
Not the biologics...

Lifestyle change required

A long walk would be nice
Exercise helps with my lifestyle
alas - robotic legs don't tire
