Damn you Allan Keyes! You screwed me again! I ask you, Dear Reader, was there a new Fun With Teh Internets this week? No there was not. And in the Sneak Peek of the Week I promised he’d be back. Damn you Allan Keyes! and worse, I don’t know what to write. So it is back to the list of for-real, real deal, strange but true writing prompts used by schools around the country.
In the year 2050, a movie is being made of your life. Please tell us the name of your movie and briefly summarize the story line. (NYU, 2009)
The year: 2050. From out of space comes a runaway planet, hurtling between the Earth and the Moon, unleashing cosmic destruction! Man’s civilization is cast in ruin! Two thousand years later, Earth is reborn. A strange new world rises from the old: a world of savagery, super science and sorcery. But one man bursts his bonds to fight for justice! With his companions Ookla the Mok and Princess Ariel, he pits his strength, his courage, and his fabulous Sunsword against the forces of evil. He is Thundarr, the Barbarian!
Yes! I AM THUNDARR THE BARBARIAN! And before you call shenanigans, I must point out that this movie will be made in the future, in 2050. Who are you to say that this will not happen? By 2050, Thundarr the Barbarian will be a historical documentary. And I WILL BE THUNDARR!
