Thump. Thump. Thump. My neighbor, Dennis, would see me doing house projects and throw tools over the fence which landed in my lawn with a characteristic “Thump!” He did this because he knew what I needed before I did. Similarly, God knows what we need before we do. So it should give us great joy and peace when Jesus prays for us. Jesus metaphorically throws items into the yard of our lives because he knows what we need!

Thump Techno have dropped their first release as a various artists compilation. Comprising of 6 stellar artists that include ARON SC, EXIX, FUAM, Genex, Flores and TYRÄXX, with all proceeds going towards the Dublin Simon Community to help tackle the homelessness crisis in Dublin, Ireland. Thump Techno have announced that they are now branching into a label. Their vision will remain the same with the label as it has with events, where they seek to showcase hard and heavy techno music. This debut label release has been curated by Thump co-founder, DECADANCE. DECADANCE highlighted his wish to exhibit artists that inspire Thump creatively who they have had the pleasure of growing closer to on a personal level. The overall release will feature an array of pummelling kick drums and dark atmospheres throughout. Following this announcement, we are happy to share a premiere for this special release, which the collective will be donating all proceeds to the Dublin Simon Community, who are actively tackling the homelessness crisis in Dublin. Today we're delighted to premiere a track form exciting youngster, Flores. The budding DJ and producer has shown to be a force to be reckoned with as of late, playing an array of shows spanning all across the country, including Galway, Limerick, Offaly, Dublin, Waterford and more. Having supported the legendary Mauro Picotto in Galway, selling out a headline Shed Residents Show with Mav666 and a Cork headline show it is clear that the future is bright for this young, talented and driven DJ and producer. 'Enter The Gravil' is another glaring example of the deep rooted production knowledge that Flores possesses. A weapon of a recording, thundering kick drums combined with bellowing bass-lines and frantic melodies make for a track that truly represents turmoil from start to finish. Scattered vocals and crashing grooves complete the track. Manic listening guaranteed. All proceeds made will go toward the Dublin Simon Community who are actively tackling the homelessness crisis in Dublin.

Take a moment and place your hand over your heart. Do you feel it beating? Do you know what a marvel your heart is? In a YouTube video called “The Miracle of the Human Heart Explained by Biologist Michael Denton”* we learn the following: Your heart started beating while you were still in the womb. It beats every second. By the time you reach 80 years old, it will beat two billion times.The cells that compose the heart are special. They resist fatigue and contract autonomously without external control.With each beat the heart moves 100 billion red blood cells through hundreds of kilometers of capillaries. Each red blood cell carries oxygen molecules to the cells of the body, providing the energy for life.It took four centuries of diligent study to understand how the heart and lungs work. They are examples of bioengineering fine-tuned to deliver energy throughout the body.But they would be useless without the fine-tuning of the earth's environment. In order for the heart and lungs to deliver oxygen, sunlight must reach the surface of the planet. Through photosynthesis, plants must be present to produce oxygen. Water, which forms the basis of blood, must be the right viscosity. If it were thicker or thinner, our blood would be useless. And transition metals must be present to carry and convert oxygen in the body. Thump, thump, thump. Your heart declares the glory of God who designed it. *Discovery Science, "The Miracle of the Human Heart Explained by Biologist Michael Denton," YouTube, https://youtu.be/52JfcJvP-Sk How to leave a review: https://www.sparkingfaith.com/rate-and-review/ Visit Elmer Fuller's author website at: https://www.elmerfuller.com/ Bumper music “Landing Place” performed by Mark July, used under license from Shutterstock.

The proverbial question, who picked the watermelon? is not borne out of insatiable satisfaction, but of one's questionable ability. An antagonistic statement, frequently followed by "you can't pick watermelons anymore". They head off ever confident in their tested and perfected process only to discover after their thumping, shaking, twisting, and flipping, they fared no better than we. We thump it, shake it, turn it on its side, we compare colors, align, and discern if the vine presents a natural break, or if it was snatched from its life. Still, neither method gives us complete assurance. Absent of any guarantee, I've yet to find anyone who has perfected the process 100%. Likewise, our faith is not one built on exactness, perfection, or getting it right all the time, but an enduring test of patience, persistence, and perseverance. Today's podcast is titled Watermelon Thump Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. We often treat our faith as a watermelon thump because that is what we have been conditioned to do. It looks swell (a leave it to beaver term), we would say, on the outside, anxiously anticipating what we've yet to discover inside. Our reluctance tells us, we do not want to pay for something that has the prospect of turning out other than expected. But we do so absent of understanding the depth and nuance of God's perfect will for our lives. As we long for just a taste, a sliver, even down to the rind, we salivate in anxiousness anticipation. Oh, the disappointment when we carefully slice it open, only to discover it is far from satisfactory, too pale, too mushy, too many seeds (there is not such thing as a seedless watermelon), not sweet enough, and on and on. Because of our frequent, past disappointment, we resort to pre-packaged and pre-cut slices. Is it watermelon? Yes! But … It is not the same, as the labor and consternation we go through to get it right. When we find the right one, the savor is sweet, and we realize our labor is not in vain. Though we went through the pains of finding the perfect one, we were encouraged and did not lose faith in the process, thus giving us the assurance, while flawed at times, to do it repeatedly. Our faith is similar as we press towards the prize, the mark, we struggle to find perfectness, we struggle to obtain the fullness of the promise. Nevertheless, we try repeatedly, until we get it right. And when the season comes about once again, we can practice and combine what our experience has allowed us to learn. The watermelon (exterior) embodies the entirety of who we are. Our faith, our communion with God, our families, jobs, and the people we interact with throughout our lives serve as part of the equation, and impact (positively or negatively) what takes place inside (our hearts).

LUIGI That explains-a everything! CHNOSSOS It was all a ruse - the boat DID sink, but not until I had "relieved" it of its lovely cargo. GARTH And the rest of the passengers and crew? CHNOSSOS Unnecessary. They went down with the ship. Couldn't have anyone left behind to inform the authorities of my presence, could I? KLAUS What is the matter with the girls? Why do they not awaken? CHNOSSOS Oh, it's been much easier to keep them drugged until now. They should be coming to any minute. Before they do, I should tell you the rest of the rules of the game. LUIGI Game? This ain't-a no game! GARTH Shh. Let him talk. CHNOSSOS No one escapes without a woman. I need two perfect specimens - a male and a female. KLAUS You sound like you plan to start a master race. CHNOSSOS I leave that to others. Each of you must choose one of the women for your companion. LUIGI What do we -uh- do with the girl? CHNOSSOS [juicy] Anything you like. But you must keep her alive until you find the exit. KLAUS Do you have to keep the same woman? CHNOSSOS Any woman will do. That's all the same to me. MUSIC BOX ROOM SOUND THUMP ON DOOR! GRACE They're going to get through any second SOUND WHIP CRACK NATHALIA [vicious, excited] Let them. GARTH Here's a knife, and - oh! SOUND THUMP OF KNIFE INTO BOX GARTH Got it! SOUND THUMP ON DOOR GRACE [gasp, strain] Got WHAT? GARTH Something spidery. Probably poisonous - that's why I'm taking this kinda slow! SOUND SPIKE COMES CRUNCHING THROUGH DOOR AMELIA [gaspy scream] Be more quick! NATHALIA Let it open. GARTH All right. On three, both of you, move over there, quick! I don't want to lose nobody else. SOUND THUMP, CRASH! MUSIC dungeon GARTH What about the others? CHNOSSOS What? GARTH The other girls. There's six of them and only three of us. What happens to the others? CHNOSSOS [nasty wicked] Don't worry. They won't be alone for long. [evil chuckle] You think I run this place single-handed? I have a horde of ..."men" just waiting to [insinuating] make the ladies' acquaintance. GARTH You fiend! KLAUS Very clever. LUIGI You put this into our hands? You make-a this all our fault! CHNOSSOS [taunting] Your fault? Why, no! Think of it this way - you each get to save one of these ladies from their fate! GARTH A fate worse than death! CHNOSSOS Just because those left behind are.... mmm... doomed. GARTH Well, we won't leave any, will we? [beat] Will we? KLAUS It will make it very difficult to succeed, herding a flock of women through a maze. LUIGI I like-a the ladies, but they can be a little hard to manage. SOUND GIRLS BEGIN TO WAKEN GARTH You heels. [up, to doc] Hey! What if we don't leave any of 'em behind? What about that? CHNOSSOS You can make that choice if you want. And of course, should any of them die in the traps in this maze-- GARTH Die? CHNOSSOS --and I assure you gentlemen, the traps are very very deadly! You might do well to take more than one, rather like a spare tire - since no one will make it out without a distaff partner. KLAUS Nein. GARTH No, Six. KLAUS [exasperated sigh, then "duh"] No. I will burden myself with only one. Easier to watch over. AMELIE [waking, very French] Oh la la! Ou et la? LUIGI But how do you propose to choose who gets a-which a-one? GARTH We should make up our minds now - before they all wake up and start a ruckus. NATHALIE [russian-sounding mutter] KLAUS I have already decided. I will have this blonde one. SUSANNE [waking up] Oh!! GARTH Why's that? KLAUS Simple. She is the smallest. Easiest to carry, should something happen. You, girl. SUSANNE [gasp, American] What? Where am I? GARTH Hey, you should leave her to me. She's from the good old U-S of A! KLAUS Too late. Come with me, girl. SUSANNE I don't want to-- KLAUS [threatening] Do not argue with me. This is a matter of life and death! CHNOSSOS Too right you are. For in five minutes, that green door on the far wall will open and a few of my choice minions will be let loose in this room. And you know what will happen then... [evil chuckle] GARTH Holy cats! We better get a move on. LUIGI But where a-do-a we go? There's the dreadful green door, and the way-a we came in, and then--? SOUND GRATING OF STONE KLAUS How convenient. Three doorways open. Come girl. I will keep you alive. SOUND GRABS UP SUZANNE KLAUS And we will make our exit, stage left. SUSANNE But I don't understand! KLAUS I will tell you all you need to know. [commanding] Come! SOUND THEY LEAVE AMELIE And 'oo will tell us all we need to know? LUIGI French? Eh! I have always favored French girls. I'll take-a you. AMELIE [defiant] Take-a me where? I do not think so! LUIGI [getting mad] Don't argue a-with-a me! You won't-a getta better chance-a than this! GARTH You better go, lady. Bad things are gonna happen here. AMELIE Huh! And no bad tings will 'appen with thees fellow? Hah! LUIGI Atsa your bad-a luck, then. You-- HELGA Ja? LUIGI Do notta speak. Just come. SOUND HUSTLES HER OFF AMELIE Hmph. Adieu. MUSIC BOX ROOM SOUND MAN CHOKING GARTH Leave off! NATHALIA [with exertion] He would be doing worse to me, were our positions reversed! GARTH We already killed three of them! We should keep him alive, make him tell us how to get out of here! NATHALIA Very well. [lets up, then hissed] You! You will take us through the maze, or He will leave you to me again, and strangling you is NOT the most painful thing I can do with this whip. SOUND CREAK OF LEATHER MONGREL [gasping] GRACE Are we certain the others are dead? GARTH Best as I can be. AMELIA I want 'is spear. Anything to keep terrible things at arm's length. GRACE I guess that leaves me the knife, unless you want to dig further into that box. SOUND CREAK OF WOOD GRACE The box! It's tipping forward! GARTH Dang it! [to the captive] YOU! Where do we go from here? MONGREL [gibbers in his language] GARTH Don't tell me he don't speak no English! AMELIA If he does not speak, then he is no use! NATHALIA Da! Then he is mine! MONGREL No! No! GRACE There's an opening under the box - and the darkness! It's moving! AMELIA Spiders! NATHALIA Bah! A whip is useless against such as those - we must leave here! MUSIC DUNGEON GARTH Gosh. I can't leave any of you girls here alone. That wouldn't be right. AMELIE We can look after ourselves. NATHALIA Speak for your own self! I want him to look after me. ODA Someone tell us, please, what it is that is going on? GRACE Yes. Can't you fill us in? GARTH Not here, not now. We gotta get moving - bad things are coming. GRACE Bad things? Could you be a bit more vague? AMELIE [troubled] That voice over the intercom - it said that. I think he is sincere. GARTH We'll get a move on, and I can tell you as we go. ODA You are taking her with you? GARTH Darnitall, I'm taking all o' y'all. MUSIC HALLWAY, KLAUS SUSANNE [distant, still screaming and gasping, and sobbing] KLAUS Verdammt.

AMELIE I don't think it is so dangereuse, to steal a few more minutes of this lovely ocean air! SOUND FEET APPROACH GRACE Ah, I'm not the only one with a mind to an evening constitutional?

In this episode: Kent talks about legendary coaches, college and pro, and characteristics they all share. Along the way, he recounts some funny and little-known stories about legends such as Bear Bryant, Vince Lombardi, Paul Brown, Bill Walsh, Tom Landry, Nick Saban, Darrell Royal, Bum Phillips, and Jerry “Tark the Shark” Tarkanian. Kent observes what he thinks makes a winner, in sports or in business, and shares a memory from his high school football days that led to a favorite saying in his family.

FADE SOUND OUTSIDE FANSHAW [sigh] Still out of sight. Come along Ezra, let us see if we can catch a glimpse of this mysterious lady. EZRA Are they gonna fight? FANSHAW [definite] No. My friend Lem has maneuvered them into peace talks. EZRA It would be fun to watch them fight, but ain't very angelic, is it? FANSHAW No. Wouldn't want anyone to get hurt, now, would we? EZRA Is that the lady, in the cart? With the big hat and veil? FANSHAW I would assume so. A bit of an affectation for the wilds, but everyone has their little vanities. EZRA Why'ud a lady wear a veil? Is she really ugly? FANSHAW I don't know about this particular lady, but many ladies wear them to protect their delicate skin from the harsh sun. EZRA Ain't much sun under all these trees. FANSHAW And some ladies, well, they wear a veil to put men at a disadvantage. No one is entirely comfortable talking to someone they cannot rightly see. [pause] I need to let Lem know what all is going on. I'll be back shortly. SOUND SHOUTS FANSHAW What? EZRA Thought you said they wasn't a-gonna fight! FANSHAW They weren't supposed to! Blast!

Ya don't hear sumpin a-comin up on you, well, you deserve whatever ya get. DOC I reckon so. LEM And with the window broken, sound can get in more. DOC What is it you heard? LEM Fighting.

AMB DOC'S HOUSE DOC I will not hear of you leaving that bed for at least a week, Mister Roberts. MRS. DOC [from off] Don't you get it into your head that you'll be able to sweet-talk your way past me neither. LEM I got no plans to budge aught farther than the broth and biscuits require to reach my mouth. DOC Good. MUSIC SCENE 12. AMB DOC'S HOUSE LEM Alone? FANSHAW They're all in the kitchen, yes. From the smells, that Beamish woman is very nearly as accomplished in the kitchen as our lady hostess, despite her lack of - ahem - refinement. They have set the men to building a sort of cookhouse. Just an annex big enough for her to serve out of. The doctor's wife objected, you see, to having all these men troop through the house at mealtimes. LEM Cain't say that I blame her. Catch me up a bit? FANSHAW They say the way to man's heart is through his stomach - and we now have clear evidence this works for groups of men as well as it works on individuals. They've all become the best of chums. And those Swedish follows are learning English, bit by bit. LEM One more victory for-- FANSHAW Civilization? LEM [down] I was gonna say salvation. Had a might too much time to ponder my past while I been laid up here. FANSHAW I shan't pry, but you know I will gladly listen to anything you feel the need to unburden yourself of. LEM Thankee kindly, but my burden is my own. FANSHAW Well. When you are up to visting, We should make a trip to speak to the fellow who was being chased by the outlaws. LEM Where ARE they, anyway? FANSHAW Several of the men took them down a flatboat on the river to the next landing. Haven't made the return yet - I gather it takes a few days. LEM Mm. Good. FANSHAW But, you see... this fellow was ...killed a bit further out than I can reach. It's very frustrating. Ezra, though... LEM Oh, yup - this Ezra you been talking about? How come I ain't seen him, never? FANSHAW I don't know. He's a child. A spirit. Who prefers to think of himself an angel. I rather think he's been here quite a long time. And Lem... LEM Yup? FANSHAW I-I feel quite dreadful about this, but - you understand, I have been endeavoring to find some way to help him pass on. But there's this--- LEM Spit it out and let's see what color it is. FANSHAW Ezra can go just about anywhere within the entire valley. That is rather a long distance. He seems to have very few of the limitations that I find myself so hampered by. I don't understand it one bit, and I have this - notion - to try and figure out why. Before I help him find his way onward. LEM Guess it's a good thing I'm laid up, then, ain't it?

The televisual schedule continues to be utter rubbish and short of vintage gems to digest and dissect, Doctor Velvet and Blackout have once again sent Producer Ken round to the video shop to procure some small-screen cinematic entertainment for The Peggy Mount Sunday Matinee Hour... This week he's returned with a 3L bottle of Rola Cola, a kilo of flying saucers and a well-worn tape of Charles Jarrott's blistering 1981 superhero / spy action adventure comedy, Condorman. Ken has several faults, but his ability to party is not one of them. How does a comic-book illustrator with zero grasp of physics manage to find someone at the CIA to bankroll development of their ridiculous inventions?

When you hear someone tell you about their vacation, you try to be interested. All that exotic food, that astounding accomodation—it's all boring. Yet there's a reason why it's boring. We aren't really hearing stories, but instead we're just getting a sequence of events. The magic to making boring is when you hear the sound of Thumpity-Thump-Thump-Thump-Thump. Yes, like falling down stairs. That's what storytelling is all about.

Adapted by Julie Hoverson, from a story by Tom Curry, as published in Astounding Stories in 1930 A new acquisition by the museum contains a dark dark secret! Cast List Betty Young - Julia Carson Professor Walter Marble - Don Parris Professor Young - Charles Austin Miller Andrew Leffler - Mark Olson Rooney - Reynaud LeBeouf Smythe - Chuck Burke Doctor - Mitchell Carson Fred - Marshal Latham Guard - Reynaud LeBeouf Music by Wynn Erickson Editing and Sound: Julie Hoverson Cover Design: Charles Austin Miller Many thanks to Project Gutenberg and Librivox for curating these classic stories. "What kind of a place is it? Why it's a special annex at the museum of natural history in 1930, can't you tell?" ************************************************ From an Amber Block [From the story by Tom Curry, published in Astounding Stories, July, 1930] Cast: Professor Walter Marble, young scientist, 30 Professor Young, old museum curator, 55 Betty Young, daughter with a clipboard, 20 Andrew Leffler, millionaire dilettante, 48 Rooney, guard, 57 Smythe, janitor, 40 Doctor, 45 Fred, workman, 25 OLIVIA Did you have any trouble finding it? What do you mean, what kind of a place is it? Why, it's a special annex at the museum of natural history in 1930, can't you tell? MUSIC Scene 1. SOUND ECHOING FOOTSTEPS SOUND WOOD CRATES BEING DISMANTLED AND REMOVED PROF These should prove especially valuable and interesting without a doubt, Marble, old man. MARBLE Have they all been brought in and set up, professor? PROF Check the manifest. Betty dear, do you have that? Should be on the clipboard. BETTY Let's see. Ah, yes - check, check - all checked off, present and accounted for. seventeen huge lumps of prehistoric amber. PROF I've told you time and time again not to bandy such unspecific terms. Until we have them precisely dated, they are assumed to be common cretaceous amber. BETTY Yes, father [correcting self] Professor. But there's nothing common about the size of these pieces! These are quite outside ...the standard deviation. SOUND SHE WALKS ON A BIT BETTY When you see bits of amber worked into jewelry, especially the ones with insects preserved in them, you just can't even picture something on this scale! MARBLE It was tricky getting them out of the ground, too. The workmen seemed afraid - didn't want to handle them for some silly reason. BETTY Is that ...coal in the biggest one? That dark center? MARBLE I am inclined to believe it will prove to be some sort of black liquid, possibly a pocket of colophony. BETTY Which is? MARBLE [somewhat dismissive] An oil derived from amber. [change of tone] Professor Young? PROF Yes? MARBLE Even with the dark central void, I think that big one will turn out to be the largest single piece of amber ever mined. PROF It appears to be several tons. It will take some maneuvering to get a proper weight on it. Betty? BETTY Yes, Professor? PROF Take this down. Stone 1 - we'll call this large one "stone one"-- BETTY Noted. PROF Make up a card when you get a chance. [back to describing] The amber is clear and pure in appearance, probably mixed with lignite. Yellow brown in color, irregular in shape. I think it is merely the thickness of the amber, and not any imperfections in its refractive structure, that make the central dark spot nothing more than a shadow. BETTY It's like a small mountain! PROF Nonsense. Get some specific measurements. Height; width through, say, four axes, at three equidistant levels. BETTY [resigned] Yes, professor. PROF If you need help, Walter here is a dab hand with triangulation. You'll help, won't you, Marble? MARBLE Certainly. Whatever you need. Miss Betty, I think we had better begin by drawing a rough sketch of the block. Scene 2. SOUND DOOR OPENS, ACROSS THE ROOM, CONFIDENT STRIDES ENTER LEFFLER [full of confidence] Well, well, well...what do you think of them? PROFESSOR Ignore him. BETTY Father! You have to play nice. He funds the research and gets to play philanthropic scientist. PROFESSOR You mean pseudo-scientific philanthropist. Yes, yes of course. [up] Mr. Leffler! All present and accounted for! LEFFLER [coming on] Everybody is talking about the big one! Orling is coming to see, along with plenty of others. Marble! Did you happen to catch any stories the workmen down there were telling? I'm thinking I'll publish something on the expedition, and that would be a great little chapter. MARBLE I don't think it was actual stories. Just general uneasiness and rumors of bad luck. Something about a creature swimming in a lake of ink, but the translator says the local dialect was pretty difficult. LEFFLER Well, monster or not, let's hope there's something good in there, something that will make all our effort worthwhile. [walking away] Maybe I can come up with a few tales, just spice, you know... MARBLE Superstition is curious, isn't it? [chuckles] How can anyone think that a fossil of a creature, penned in such a cell for thousands and thousands of years, could do any harm? PROF Superstition, by definition, is unreasonable. These amber blocks were mined in the Manchurian lignite deposits by Chinese coolies under Japanese masters. They believe anything over there. I remember working once with a crew of them that thought— BETTY [off] [scream!] PROF What is it, Betty dear? BETTY It - it - it--! MARBLE Her face is completely white! PROF You'd better sit down. SOUND SCUFFLE PROF What is it that has put you into such a state? BETTY I—I thought I saw something looking out, eyes that stared at me—-! [laughs, but forced] I suppose it was just Mr. Leffler's talk of monsters. There's certainly nothing there now. PROF Perhaps the Manchurian devil just likes beautiful young ladies, eh, Marble? [chuckles] [walking off] Well, be careful, dear. If it takes a notion to jump out at you, call for me and I'll return presently and exorcise it. BETTY [chuckles, but half hearted] I suppose you think I'm being hysterical, too, Mr. Marble? MARBLE [musing] No-o-o. PROF [coming back in] Come along Betty, we must go home. There's a long, interesting day ahead of us to-morrow, [going off again] and I want some time to read Orling's new work on matrices before we begin chipping at block number one. MARBLE [confidential] I... I saw something, too. Could it have been just some refraction of the light? BETTY [gasp] I—I don't know. I thought I saw two terrible eyes glaring at me from the inky heart. But when father laughed at me, I was ashamed and thought it was just my fancy. MARBLE The center is liquid, I'm sure of it. [beat] Well, we'll find out soon enough, once we get started. PROF [off, commanding] Come along, Betty! BETTY Be careful. SOUND SHE WALKS OFF Scene 3. MUSIC PROF Betty? Have you got the specimens we've laid out on tray 15 itemized yet? BETTY Yessir! 8 ants, 14 mosquitoes, 32 unidentified insect portions and 3 bees. PROF Very good. We'll make a scientist out of you, yet. [chuckles heartily] BETTY I'm sure I've got plenty to do as it is. You are being careful, aren't you? PROF That's the dozenth or so time you've inquired. What is it you expect to happen? BETTY I... I don't know. PROF [condescending] The stones are carefully anchored so they won't fall over, and carefully protected by their canvas covers when we're not working on them. BETTY I know. But do be careful. PROF You think the fabled Manchurian beast is going to break out of that stone like a - like a chick out of an egg - and run amok? BETTY You said you plan to work your way into position to tap that dark central core. PROF Between our heaters and our chisels, we'll be through into the central mass sometime tomorrow. It's getting much softer, now the outside shell is pierced. Amber used to be called – still is in some cultures – the stone that burns. BETTY [german name, but quiet] Bernstein. PROF Since not only does it become malleable when heated, it can actually return to its original resinous state – a state in which it is, once again, flammable! MARBLE But, for our purposes, it is soft and permeable – much easier to dig through than say granite or basalt. Pretty soon we'll find out whether we are right about it being liquid. We have to wait, and make some preparations for catching it, just in case. BETTY [nervous] Catching - what? MARBLE The liquid, of course. Some sort of large drainage pan should suffice. SOUND DISTANT BELL PROF And that is time. SOUND PEOPLE PUTTING THINGS AWAY, THE ROOM QUIETING DOWN BETTY Mr. Leffler wants to be here when the final breach is made. Should I call him and issue a formal invite? PROF Oh, don't bother me with him tonight. [walks off] We can summon him quickly enough when we're nearly there - otherwise, he'll spend all day hovering about and getting in the way. MARBLE Here's your coat, miss Young. BETTY Thanks. [sigh] I think it must have been my imagination. I certainly didn't see anything odd today. MARBLE Nor did I, but I kept thinking I heard dull scrapings from inside the block. My brain tells me I'm an imaginative fool, that nothing could be alive inside something that old - but just the same, I keep thinking about those eyes we thought we saw. [shaking it off] Just shows how far the imagination will take one. PROF [calling from off] It's getting dark, Betty! Better not stay here in the shadows or the devil will get you. I wonder if it will be Chinese or up-to-date American! BETTY [laugh, slightly annoyed] Funny how such smart men can sometimes be so dense. MARBLE Oh? BETTY Nothing. Good night! SOUND SHE WALKS Scene 4. SOUND DOOR OPENS ROONEY Here you go, miss Young. BETTY Night, Rooney! ROONEY Stayin' late this evening, are you? BETTY [going off] No, we're calling it a night, Rooney. SOUND HER FEET GO OFF ROONEY Good night, Miss Young. Sleep happy. BETTY [from off] Thanks, Rooney! ROONEY [whistles something irish] SOUND BETTY'S FEET COME BACK ROONEY Is there a problem, ma'am? BETTY You'll be extra careful tonight, won't you? ROONEY Well, miss, I'm always careful. Nobody can get in to harm anything while old Rooney's about. BETTY [reluctant but urgent] I don't mean that. I want you to be careful yourself, when you're anywhere near this room to-night. ROONEY [indulgent] Why, miss, what is there to be wary of? Nothing but some funny looking stones, far as I can see. BETTY Of course. Scene 5. MUSIC BETTY [sleeping fitfully] oh… looking ...at... me! SOUND TELEPHONE RINGS BETTY [comes awake with a gasp] SOUND GETS UP, OPENS DOOR PROF [off] Hello? Yes, speaking. [annoyed] Good morning, Smythe. BETTY Smythe? At the Museum? PROF Shh-shh! [gasp] My God! I—I can't believe it! Is he dead? BETTY Dead? Who? PROF I'll be right down, yes. SOUND HANGS UP THE PHONE PROF Dear, there's been a tragedy at the museum during the night. One of the guards has been killed. BETTY Oh no! Not Rooney! PROF I don't know them by name. Possibly by burglars. And Smythe, who found him, wants me to come down and see if anything has been stolen. I must go at once. The body is in our laboratory. Where did I leave my overcoat...? BETTY [sniffled a bit] Give me a minute to get dressed. PROF No, no. No need. BETTY [firm] I'm going with you. PROF You can come along later, once we have things ...tidied up a bit. BETTY I'll be all right. I promise you I will. And you know I'm the only one who can keep your notes straight. MUSIC Scene 6. AMB MUSEUM SMYTHE I've sent for an ambulance, Professor. PROF Of course, Smythe. Let me see the extent of the damage. SOUND DOOR OPENS SMYTHE Yes, of course. The body is around on the left ...here? Sir? PROF I must check on the stones first. See that nothing has been damaged. BETTY [grumpy mutter] Of course. Rooney's not going anywhere. PROF Aha. Nothing seems missing. BETTY Father, they're too large for someone to just run off with. PROF Why don't you go and check the trays in the lock room. Make sure nothing portable has walked away. BETTY Very well. PROF Smythe? The body? SMYTHE Here. PROF [musing] No pulse. Cold. He's been dead some time. BETTY [coming on] The lock on the room hasn't been tampered with, and – [gasp] PROF There's nothing we can do for him, now. It looks as though the poor fellow was set upon and stabbed a number of times by an assailant or assailants, whoever they were. BETTY Poor Rooney! He was so jolly and red-faced, but now - his skin is like chalk! PROF Rather shrunken, too. Almost as if there's no blood left in his veins. BETTY And that look on his face! He must have been terrified of whoever killed him. MARBLE There must have been several assassins; They beat him up frightfully. It would take more than one man to do such damage. BETTY [quietly] Poor man. Who will tell his grandchildren? MARBLE [quiet, sympathy] Yes. [up] His ribs are crushed in—see, this gash, Professor, that would be enough to cause death without any of the other wounds. BETTY [to herself, horrible fascination] What are they looking at? A horrible... blistered area under his arm? And a gash – oh, that must be what killed him! PROF Bloodless! As I said! It is as if the blood had been pumped out of the body! MARBLE And yet not much blood on the ground. I only see a couple of splotches, and those look like they're from more superficial cuts. PROF Maybe he was dragged here from another room. Perhaps the thieves were here to steal something in another part of the museum. Seems to me that men desperate enough to commit such a murder would not leave without trying to get what they came after. MARBLE Unless, of course, the killing of the guard frightened them away before they could get to their booty. SOUND FEET APPROACH SMYTHE I brought that doctor you asked for, Professor Young. MARBLE Any idea when this happened, Smythe? SMYTHE Well, he punched the clock in here at two A.M. - I seen that. MARBLE And he never made it to his next punch? SMYTHE Nope. [heavy sigh] And it's the last time he'll ever do his duty, poor feller. DOCTOR Curious odor. [sniffs] It smells like musk, but is fetid. I suppose it's some chemical you use in your lab here? PROF I noticed that, too. Nothing I recognize. Marble? Where did he get to? Marble? MARBLE [off] There are wavy black lines on the tiles, leading around back of the block! PROF You will have to be more specific. Wavy lines indeed! MARBLE [moving further off] come and look, then! They go around the back, and – good god! BETTY What? SOUND PEOPLE DASH TO LOOK BETTY That - that dark “hollow” in the stone – it's completely open! PROF Marble, get me samples of that liquid before it all evaporates, would you? Didn't anyone think to check behind the block here? BETTY Everyone was pretty distracted by Rooney. PROF [dismissive] The corpse? I suppose, but he's certainly in no further danger. BETTY [quiet but intense] You're more interested in your black liquid then a man who lost his life. MARBLE [off] It's not liquid at all! At least not any more. It's nearly all dried, Professor Young. [musing] Dried into those strange wavy runnels and patterns... BETTY It looks like black lacquer. And that smell. I see what the doctor meant! PROF Our chipping and hammering and the heat of the radiator causing it to expand must have forced out the sepia, or whatever it is. [disappointed sigh] I had hoped that inside the liquid we would discover a fossil of value. MARBLE Yes... MUSIC Scene 7. AMB CROWD TALKING, OFF MARBLE Look here Betty, I guess it's just you and me that might have seen this… thing. BETTY That hole in the amber – it's awful big! Who knows WHAT might have been inside? MARBLE [dubious] Could have been nothing at all… BETTY Did that black stain look like it could have been enough to fill the entire cavity? I'm quite sure it was full. MARBLE I'll poke around a bit. BETTY Be careful! MARBLE I will. Say, from here, does the giant block look like it's been moved? BETTY Hold on – I have some sketches. SOUND FLIPPING PAPERS ON HER CLIPBOARD BETTY Gosh! You're right! It's shifted just a bit! But it – it's huge! Tons, Father said. [rationalizing] Oh! It must have been the explosion- or expulsion – of all that liquid. That might very well have shifted it, mightn't it? MARBLE [dubious] Maybe. BETTY You're worried about those marks in the black gunk, aren't you? MARBLE They look like claw marks, not mere natural striations. BETTY Professor Marble? Please don't look any longer. Let's leave this terrible place - for the day, anyway - until we see what happens in the next twenty-four hours. MARBLE I must make a search. My brain calls me a fool, but just the same, I'm worried. BETTY Do you really think ...? MARBLE I fear so. MUSIC Scene 8. BETTY Is there any further word on the murder? MARBLE Your father has dismissed it as a botched theft attempt. BETTY I – I can't believe it. And what about the blood? MARBLE The blood? BETTY Father may be able to disregard it, but he's the one who pointed out that all of poor Rooney's blood was… missing. Were there any other signs of struggle? Anywhere? Or even some sign of a break-in? MARBLE No. [dubious] But it might be the work of a slick professional cracksman. BETTY And how many of those would rather randomly kill a man than hide until the guard has gone on along his rounds, tell me that? MARBLE [chuckle] I didn't say that was MY opinion. BETTY I'm going to try to take father home, right after lunch, if he'll go. He's so stubborn. If you must stay, would you – please – carry a gun? MARBLE Very well. Not that I think it would be of much use, if I did find—-[cuts himself off] SOUND DOOR SLAMS OPEN, IMPERIOUS FEET ENTER LEFFLER [from across the room] What's this I hear? A watchman killed in the night? Carelessness, man, carelessness! MARBLE [quiet] Betty, see if your father needs anything. BETTY Good idea. LEFFLER The authorities here are absurd! They hold priceless treasures and yet they allow thieves to enter and wreak their will. [arrived] You, Marble! What's all this mean? MARBLE We do the best we can, Mr. Leffler. It is unlikely that anyone would wish to, let alone be ABLE to, steal such a thing as that block of amber. LEFFLER And why not? It cost ME thousands of dollars! MARBLE It took the use of several large machines and a good deal of manpower to bring it INTO this room. Any attempt to similarly leave – well, it would hardly pass unnoticed. LEFFLER Hogwash! I understand it's been broken into! There's pieces of my beautiful stone gone missing, mark my words! SOUND BELL BETTY It's time for lunch, Professor Marble. MARBLE You'll excuse us? Good. SOUND THEY WALK AWAY, LEAVING LEFFLER [fading as they leave] OF all the things! I have contributed considerable sums to this museum, and to see my money treated as if it were no more valuable than the general run of arrowheads and pot shards! MARBLE Phew. Thanks for coming to my rescue. BETTY He'll still be at it when we get back. MARBLE yes, but I will have had some coffee! SOUND DOOR SHUTS, CUTTING OFF LEFFLER MARBLE Poor Rooney. It's been preying on me. Betty, I feel more or less responsible, in a way. BETTY No, no! How could you have foreseen such a thing? MARBLE Those eyes. I shouldn't have discounted what we saw. I should have taken precautions. But I had no idea it could burst from its prison. BETTY You will get a revolver before you search further? [firm] I'm going to, too. Smythe has one, and I know he'll lend it to me. MARBLE I believe Leffler has seen something, too. That's why he keeps talking about it being our fault. His talk about the devil inside the block was half in earnest. BETTY He never seemed to take it any more seriously than – than father does! MARBLE Perhaps he put it down to imagination, or even did not think this fossil could be dangerous. BETTY I think Rooney could show them the error of their assumptions. MUSIC Scene 9. SOUND OUTSIDE BETTY There's some kind of commotion at the museum entrance! MARBLE Figures. We leave the building for just long enough to eat, and something happens! SOUND CROWD MURMURS GUARD Stay back, folks. The museum is closed. MARBLE Let us through! GUARD The museum is closed to the public, sir! MARBLE I'm not the public! I insist you tell me what's going on! GUARD Come inside, then both of you. SOUND DOOR SHUTS, CLOSING OUT CROWD GUARD Somethin's happened up in the paleontological laboratories. Dunno just what, but orders come down to clear the rooms and not let anybody in but members of the staff, sir. MARBLE Blast! SOUND QUICK WALKING BETTY Walter! Please wait! Get yourself a gun. MARBLE All right. You! GUARD Me? MARBLE [to guard] Give me your gun. [to her] Betty, you need to stay here, where it's safe. BETTY I'm going with you. MARBLE As a senior staff member to a junior one, I order you to remain downstairs. BETTY Hmph. Very well. SOUND HIS FOOTSTEPS GO ONE WAY, THEN HER FOOTSTEPS GO OFF IN ANOTHER DIRECTION Scene 10. MUSIC SOUND CHECKING AMMO IN A GUN SOUND BETTY STRIDING PURPOSEFULLY BETTY [talking to herself] Good. I knew Smythe would come through for me. Marble may be a bright fellow, but anyone could see another gun will come in handy— SOUND RUNNING FEET COMING FRED [panic heavy breathing] BETTY What is it? Fred! Look at me! Tell me what's going on! FRED [gasping and babbling] There was a black fog—I saw a red snake with legs— BETTY A what? Oh no! You get on out of here! FRED B-but where are you going? BETTY To make sure the professors are all right! Scene 11. SOUND HER RUNNING FEET, THEY SLOW BETTY [coughing] What's that [cough] in the air. Phew! It smells like—[suddenly alert] It smells like whatever came out of that stone! LEFFLER [distant horrible SCREAM] BETTY Walter! SOUND SHE RUNS, GASPING, THROUGH THE FOG BETTY [muttered] It just keeps getting thicker and thicker – I can barely see! [up] Walter?? SOUND FOOTSTEPS SLOW, PATTING ALONG WITH HAND BETTY Ah, the door. LEFFLER [whimpering, distant] SOUND DRAGGING JUICY AWFUL NOISES BETTY [sharp whisper] Where are you? LEFFLER [whimpery scream, cut off – urk!] BETTY If only the sun would come out, the skylights might cut through some of this murk! [up] Walter! MARBLE [quiet but urgent] Go back, Betty, go back! SOUND HER SLOW STEPS MARBLE [disgust and sorrow] Oh, Leffler! [groan] BETTY [gasp] Here you are! MARBLE I told you to get out of here! BETTY Is he hurt? MARBLE He's dead. Just like Rooney, far as I can tell. BETTY But he just twitched! MARBLE Something must have a hold on him! BETTY Some thing? [screams] SOUND SHE RUNS MARBLE Get out of here, Betty! Get to safety! SOUND SLITHERY NOISE MARBLE I'll keep anything from following you. BETTY [scream breaks off with noise of effort] SOUND SMASH OF GLASS Scene 12. MARBLE What are you doing? BETTY Terrified or not, I'm not leaving you, Walter! [noise of effort] SOUND ANOTHER WINDOW BREAKS BETTY But unless we get some air in here, that nasty haze will be our undoing! MARBLE [astonished] Good girl! It's starting to clear a bit. BETTY Where are you? I can see Leffler's … body… now, but-- Walter? MARBLE [loud whisper] Stay clear of the amber. BETTY Which one? MARBLE [loud whisper] All of them. I think IT is hiding among them, somewhere. BETTY How can we tell? MARBLE [strange urgency] Betty, please go outside and call some of the men. BETTY What are you looking ...at...? Oh. That black smoke – that's not moving because of the open window, is it? MARBLE [strained, conversational] It's coming out from under that canvas cover. BETTY [shocked but trying to sound calm] That's where it is! MARBLE The cover is too big to move all in one go by myself. BETTY I can get— MARBLE Don't come any closer! BETTY I'll grab the rope from here – between us, we can flip it! SOUND SUCKING TENTACLE NOISE BETTY [stifled noise of horror] MARBLE Well, it's definitely under there. SOUND ANOTHER SLITHER MARBLE All right... now! SOUND FLAP OF CLOTH Scene 13. MONSTER [hiss] BETTY [scream] MONSTER [shriek] MARBLE All red, with black patches! Reptilian, but some sort of secondary nostrils on the – aha! That's where the black miasma in the air comes from! BETTY IS coming from! It's trying to blind us with its smokescreen. MARBLE Did you see where it went? BETTY Other side of the block, I think! Oh, that smell! MARBLE It must have been right there, under the canvas, all day. BETTY Within arm's reach of the whole staff? How awful! MARBLE [disgust] It came out only when there was comparative quiet, to get its food.... BETTY We-we must kill it! [slower] We... must… MARBLE Betty! Its eyes – they're hypnotizing her Like a snake! Snap out of it, Betty! SOUND SLITHERING SLURPING NOISE MARBLE Betty! SOUND THUMP, SKID, AS HE KNOCKS HER OVER, GETTING HER OUT OF THE WAY BETTY [snapping out of it] Its mouth – that long fanged tongue! MARBLE [noting to self] It has the thick body of an immense python and the clawed legs of a dinosaur. BETTY And it's horrible! MARBLE But it also appears to have tentacles, like some sort of terrestrial octopus.... BETTY Still horrible! MARBLE Betty, no one has ever had such an experience as this, seen such a sight, and lived to tell of it. It must be ravenous with hunger, shut up in its amber cell inside the black fluid. I— SOUND WHISTLING HISS – INTAKE OF AIR BETTY I have a feeling it's about to blow! MARBLE I think it's armored. I'll have to aim for the head. SOUND SIX SHOTS BETTY [screaming] It's coming! SOUND WEIRD SLITHER THUMP AS IT MOVES BETTY Come on! SOUND THEY BACK AWAY MARBLE It's in front of the door! BETTY We can't go out the window! We're too high up! Here. SOUND HANDS HIM GUN BETTY I counted and you're just about out. SOUND CLICK MARBLE Good gravy you're right. [ugh, throws the empty gun] Thanks. Now you get moving while I distract it! Hurry! Run for your life! BETTY Oh, Walter! SOUND SHE RUNS SOUND SLITHER, SNAP, GUNSHOTS BETTY [off] Oh, there MUST be something! Aha! [Ugn! Breaks glass case] SOUND GLASS BREAKS, GRABS FIRE AXE SOUND MONSTER LUNGES AT MARBLE, MORE GUNSHOTS, CLICK BETTY [muttered] I won't let you die, Walter! SOUND SHE RUNS, THEN BETTY UGN!!!! SOUND CHOP OF AXE INTO FLESH MONSTER [HORRIBLE SCREAM!] MARBLE No! Over here, you beast! Keep looking at me! BETTY And again! SOUND THUMP, SQUISH MONSTER Scream! SOUND THRASHING MARBLE Look out Betty! The tail! BETTY What? Ugh! [smacked down] SOUND BODY DROP MARBLE No! Betty! FADE INTO BLACKNESS AND SILENCE Scene 14. MUSIC STUMBLES IN BETTY [waking, muttering] What?? What happened? [sudden gasp, freaking out] The monster! MARBLE [manly agony] Oh, my darling! Are you badly hurt? BETTY [calming down] No. I'm—I'm all right. But—but Walter—did it—? PROF He's fine, but the monster is hacked to pieces, and don't think I'm simply using an unscientific term. MARBLE I – i- when I saw you fall, I think I went a bit mad. And then the axe was in my hand, and – PROF [stern] And he utterly mutilated a marvelous and unique specimen. BETTY Father! We could have been killed! PROF [relenting] Well, there are still some remains to examine. They're taking the rest of it away now. PROF I think we will find it to be some sort of missing link between the dinosaurs and mososaurs. Thus, the tentacles. SOUND HE WALKS AWAY PROF [lecturing as he leaves] It is surely unbelievable that such a creature should be found alive; but perhaps it can be explained. It is related to the amphibians and was able to live in or out of the water. MARBLE Hmph. Oh, to the devil with paleontology, Betty. You saved my life. Come out and let's get married. I love you. PROF [droning on in the background] Now, we have many instances of reptiles such as lizards and toads penned up in solid rock but surviving for hundreds of years. BETTY At least we're safe, Walter. And unique! MARBLE How's that? BETTY It's not every woman who is helped by a living fossil to make the man she loves realize he loves her! PROF Evidently this great reptile went through the same sort of experience. I would say that there has been some great upheaval of nature, that the reptile was caught in its prison of amber thousands and thousands of years ago. Through hibernation and perhaps a preservative drug it emitted in the black fluid, this creature has been able to survive its long imprisonment. Naturally, when it was released by the cutting away of part of the amber which penned it in, it burst its cell, ravenous with hunger. SOUND HE FADES OUT INTO CLOSING MUSIC ENDING
My philosophy for all major change: "thump thump." After I got my energy in order for the week, I decided to show up and put out a podcast on the importance of showing up daily. Don't disregard this one completely- I make it fun! For a bonus, I also talk about depression, suicide, and the tremendous power of "Day One." ✨
