    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 21 “Dead To Rites” (138) 1/5/2014 Saturday

    Before they get too far into trying to hack the lock a call comes in from the technician in route demanding they leave it alone. Something about “incendiaries” that caused Dr. Tucker to shout to the others to “stop, stop now! Do not touch the mechanism!” They stopped and were shown the fail safe diagram of that model security file cabinet. They turned pale, except for Xial and Prasrinivara.(Paha_siga doesn’t really have a face or expressions.Just in the voice does it—he have emotional tenor.)
    “The human body is riddled with bacteria, however these being used are inimical and would have to be dormant in the tissues till activated. One way is remotely. Probably some signal keyed to their activation…”
    “Thank you Paha_siga for your input.” Dr. Tucker said, feeling a little queasy after viewing those too sharp color photos of the bodies.

    Morning, all!

    Uh,oh . . .

    Well, that’s as good an explanation as any.

    Guess Alley isn’t exactly good at setting time coordinates.

    Not like Doc Wonmug, anyway.

    I’m guessing that once again, they have drawn John Wooley into a story that he has assisted in. If you recall the last time that happened, he was asking Wonmug to bring back samples, which started the whole Frankenstein arc.

    Morning, Oopsters.
    Notice that the lazy Benders photoshopped the building in panel 2 from yesterday. And, by the way, it is called photoshopping, even when it involves graphic arts instead of photos. The word begins with a lower case “p” because it is a verb, used to describe the use of an image editor program, whether one is actually using “Photoshop” or not.

    Bit if they’ll run over to Paramount, they might find them shooting The Monster and the Girl.

    Won’t argue with you, there.

    Will Ooola start carping about “typical males” as I described on Wednesday? And congrats to Night-Gaunt49 who guessed they’d land in the wrong time before I could!

    “Good job? Hey what’s 10 years or so when we’re travelling across millions of of years!”

    couldn’t Alley just re-calibrate and zang back to 1931?

    Is Jack even trying anymore? The art in the first panel is just awful. And the writing! We know this guy’s the producer because he’s got a producer’s hat and megaphone! They always go around other sets looking for stray extras. John Wooley doesn’t seem to be much of a writer either.

    Good Morning Benders, John Wooley, and readers of Alley Oop. It wonderful to see John Wooley back with his great
    plot ideas. Alley’s found out the truth about arriving 10 years too late for Frankenstein and Ooola’s sarcasm about his expertise on time devices had better be heeded. The studio isn’t closed but has seen it’s better day. Perhaps a independent film is leasing it for a film In 1942 Ernst Lubitsch released his funny film thru United Artist, To Be
    or Not to Be, with Jack Benny and Carole Lombard.
    Alley take a walk around the studio. It shouldn’t take long
    and may distract Ooola.

    Way to go Alley, not bad for a Cave Man.
    Better Luck next try, or are you going to get into this movie ?

    Ooola is an experienced time traveler though not as much as Alley Oop is.
    So far an interesting start. Hope for once they can carry it through to a satisfactory conclusion. Will be a real movie or one they create? A movie with cave people? I wonder….
    Reason and Emotion (1943)
    8 min – Animation | Family | Short – 27 August 1943 (USA)

    A look inside the brain, where we see Emotion (a caveman) ruling the infant, with Reason in the driver’s seat for adults most of the time. We’re shown the consequences when emotion takes over, and then we see how Hitler has manipulated his populace so that Emotion has put Reason in a concentration camp. Finally, we’re exhorted to keep emotion in check to help us win the war, by not paying attention to rumors and getting discouraged with minor setbacks (but still having emotional pride in our country).
    Only if it was live action here.
    Another possibility is Beyond the Blue Horizon (1942)
    At the Paramount.

    I had to go back to July, 2013, to find the beginning of the Frankenstein arc. John Wooley worked for the Dept of Climate Studies and didn’t look anything like this director. Or are you making a prediction based on some insider knowledge?

    Wooley contributed to the writing of that story as well as this one.
