Me Through The Sun

Through the hole in the sun, I see myself looking back. I am taller there with bright, green eyes that convey the happiness everyone who lives there must feel. My hair is black and long, tied into a ponytail that rests on my shoulder. I, there, am not as pale as I am here. My skin is healthy and tanned and it is set off by the glow of the red electric light above my head. It seems, through the sun, everything is lit red. My teeth gleam like rubies and I am smiling at me, showing them off. Me in the sun waves a jolly wave at me. Hi neighbour. A big gesture with an arc like a rainbow. I, in the sun, hold out my hand and shiny rays of gold flick out of my palm at me, leaving sparkly dust trails in their wake. They tickle as they sprinkle across my face and I smile and close my eyes. Me through the sun, speak to me.
He says “Guten Tag, meine Freunde.”
Smiling and his arms stretched out, he gestures with his fingers for me to come to him. His sparkly turquoise jumpsuit changing colour as he moves to red, violet, green, yellow, magenta, silver and more colours I’ve never seen before.
“Freund.”
I leap forward at the glorious star and float, spinning like a long pig, towards the hole in the sun. Asteroids with big purple faces grin and blow raspberries as I pass them. I grab one and I throw it at another who made a face. They strike each other and a ping sounds. A white “100 pts” materialises from the debris, framed against the blackness of space, and then evaporates into nothing.
The face in the sun gets bigger as I move closer to it. It’s so large now that it’s all I can see. He holds out his index finger and I clutch the edge of his fingernail with both arms. Black nail polish comes off onto my clothes as I crawl into the space between his fingernail and skin. Slowly he moves me up to his mouth and gently blow at me, my hair flowing back across my head.
“Huh huh huh, friend.”
He flicks me off his finger, back through the hole in the sun.
“Bye”, he waves goodbye, “Bye”.
I spin through the earth’s atmosphere, on fire, through the clouds into nighttime Ireland. Yawning, my head touches my pillow and my blankets pull themselves over me.
“Goodnight friend.”
And I fall asleep to dream of me through the sun.

  1. I think you have finally done too much study Rob.

    I also think my eyesight is beginning to deteriorate.

  9. Have I got a god complex? I have a problem with god, I suppose. The idea of god rather than god, herself... himself And heaven. I have spent many good hours thinking about it. I don't like my conclusions but...
    Anyway, there is only two of me in this story and one of me was an Indian.

    ReplyDelete
  19. There's plenty of hair between my hooves.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Well if you apply a goal reduction algorithm to your question and factor in uncertainty then he's likely fucking his or a mother.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Here Daly, how's your exams going?
    Also, out of all the names you've had I think Dalyrage is the best...
    Also again, has everyone seen the new link Fun Land?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I saw Funland I thought I was going to have a seizure.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yea, Funland's terrific.
    Or terrorific.

    I would like to add that one of my inspirations in the story was cannibalism.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sleeping every four hours sounds fucking awesome.
    Yea, I'm hoping my near imaginery photographic memory will pull my through the exams as well.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I didn't eat Ian... but I did eat some poop which is alot like Ian.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yours may be imaginary, mine just took an extended fucking break. About ten years i reckon.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Your subject sounds much more intensive than mine. At least I can use english when answering questions. You have to use binary code.... incredible.

    ReplyDelete

    There looks to be a craptastic film on TV3 right now. David Carradine is in it.

    ReplyDelete
  33. The film is called Bonjour Monsieur Shlomi for anyone else interested. It's supposed to be alright.

    ReplyDelete
  34. When you say craptastic do you mean craptastic good or craptastic bad?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Have you been watching the foreign film season. I've missed like all of it.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Tehila is a bitch. The teacher's a legend though.

    ReplyDelete
  37. It's not french anyway. i can't understand a fucking word.

    Did you watch the french film last night? Fucking savage. I think every girl in it had her mammaries out at one stage or another.

    ReplyDelete
  38. DID YOU JUST SEE THE AD FOR LOST? Holy SHIT. That's looks a billion times better than I thought it would.

    Thanks for the mammaries.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  44. I got really tired and decided to go to bed, but I only made it as far as my desk and lap top so I might go back for more and finish that motherfucker off.

    ReplyDelete
  45. That film was fucking cool. Also craptastic means shit but highly entertaining because of it.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  47. What's LOLZ?
    Laugh out loud dragonball Z style?
    Because that would be totally sweet!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Kylie's a weapon and a half. She's on my definitive list of maga-babes. Enough said.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Ian, did it beg for mercy, spicy chicken style?

    ReplyDelete
  50. You know it! It was all like "Hey come on, you've drank so much already. You've proved you are the apple juice master."

    Then I drank the bitch anyway and it was all like "I'm gonna have you up to piss at 3 am mothe...."

    Then I swallowed. Oh yeah!

    ReplyDelete

    Eh, maybe tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Nah, not unless they're with a 5 gigapixel camera at close range. I want to see dermis here.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Oh Rob, this post reminded me of that episode of The Simpsons where Bart helps Grandpa find the Art he and his platoon stole in WWII and then hid. The description of the alternate sun-god you reminded me of the german guy who actually owns the art and at the end he sees Bart and Grandpa hugging, stops his merc and shouts out "Hey funboys, get a room".

    ReplyDelete
  59. Damn, don't post the word funboys bud. It totally ruins the impact when you say it out loud if people are used to it... It's one of 'those' words.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I was thinking of that... But for the german bit. I was thinking about the Indian from King of the Hill for the decription of me through the sun.
    Other things I thought about were:
    Ziggy Stardust,
    the seventies,
    the eighties,
    Frankenstein
    Old videogames
    Soundgarden
    Fucking Care Bears
    Simpsons (Homer in Space)
    Futurama
    New adidas ad, the smart shoe one
    The first X Box ad. The controversial one.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Apologies. Maybe that's a sentence I had to vocalise.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Can I write a story about Hedonism Jim, the perverted financial management lecturer?

    ReplyDelete
  63. Damn, yes. Great idea. Hedonism Jim. Remember that it's hedonism, not hedonist. He has to symbolise the entire lifestyle.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Damn fucking straight, hes going to resemble the shit right down to his shoes.

    ReplyDelete
  65. God damn lads. You're wrecking it.

    Ok fine. Not to worry. I've an endless supply.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Oh shit, look at the time. Me must bed go so that tomorrow study I can.
    Otherwise, fail on monday exam I will.
    Splurge.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I have a four mega pixel camera, and I was six feet from Kylie, Front Row,centre stage, in one of my movie clips she clearly looks into my camera... With ten optical zoom, i got it all... And her videos employ quite a bit of those air brushes, but still so fine

    ReplyDelete
  68. I think I also want an exit sound effect. Maybe Kazaam.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  71. How big are they? My email address is in my blogger profile.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I noticed the Soundgarden reference because of the 'black hole sun' expression. Welcome back to the 1990's.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Motherfuckers! Motherfuck, motherfuck, MOTHERFUCKERS! God fucking damn it.

    ReplyDelete
  74. What's wrong Ian. Stressed out over exams? Relax, put your feet up. It'll all be over tomorrow afternoon wether you do well or not. So why worry?

    ReplyDelete
  75. If I post some crap, would anyone mind?

    It would literally be bits and pieces of stuff I've started but never finished... Just to get rid of them.

    ReplyDelete
  76. My brain coughs.Exams=Cavity Search.Deep,Hard,No Lube.No time for personal malaise, just organisational disease.Even killing hookers on Vice C. holds no pleasure!
