Once Upon a Renegade newsreel…
May 30, 2015NewsReel
“I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream” sings a tipsy, chain-smoking lady with a fake German accent.
As the chain-smoker belted this Disney tune as loud as her raspy voice would allow her to, she reminisced on how she once saw something called a Renegade Newsreel that someone with the username “Jemini” used to post on a weekly basis.
“What happened to those days?” she thought as she began to sway with the contents of a wine glass spilling onto the carpet by her feet while still singing the Sleeping Beauty tune at the top of her lungs. As the red wine splattered onto the carpet, she abruptly ceased her singing and looked down at wine soaked carpet that barely missed staining her overpriced satin heals.
Letting out a pathetic chuckle, she raised her head and began stumbling towards the nearest seat in the smoke-filled, dimly lit, prohibition era cocktail lounge. With every fumbling step, the contents of her wine glass jostled violently towards the rim of the glass trying to escape to make a trail of red stains onto the carpet.
After nearly rolling her ankle and completely emptying her wine glass, she managed to find a chair in a dark corner of the cocktail lounge with a loud thud. “More wine!” She shrieked as she raised the now empty wine glass in the air in the direction of a waiter.
While waiting for her glass to be replenished, she began to drift off into a wide-eyed deep, drunken thought, mumbling to herself in the process. “Now, what did that newsreel have in it again? I remember seeing it once upon a dream….”
As the cocktail lounge faded around her, a computer screen with a browser window open to a page with words flooding into the foreground. “We’re not dead yet…I think I’ll go for a walk now” read the blog headline in bold white letters by an iceberg. “Oh sure, blame the guy in the dress” said another by an iceberg. “Happy Hour!”, heralded the latest post by the twisted one.
Not a single, solitary sign of this phantom user called “Jemini”. Did she die? Well, not really. Here’s a bit of that thing called a Renegade Newsreel to prove that life is still present in the username “Jemini”.
