Kerley’s Moment (the genesis of bigFoLK) Part I
It started on a Saturday night as 4 souls unwittingly began their journey toward eternity... Not knowing what lay ahead, they were ignorant as to the consequences of their actions and the impact it would have on the world. As they stood, smoking cigarettes (everyone bummed one from Eric), and sipping cool water, the discussion kept returning to the movie Eraserhead (really, Kerley kept bringing it up). They were there, still considering at great length, (really, it was just Kerley talking) the “baby” and what the “The Man in the Planet” was doing inside the baby’s head when… Suddenly, the night air was disrupted by a slight grumbling (all assumed Tim had skipped supper that night), but soon, the earth beneath them began to rumble as it cracked and rippled around them. Their cigarettes fell from their astounded mouths, as the ground before them split wide leaving a gaping hole just steps from their feet… They stood bravely (everyone behind Tim, of course)alertly awaiting what was to come next, but the night air once again grew silent and still in midst of the dust and smoke from the explosion. The four stood still allowing the dust to clear in hopes they could better see the danger of their situation before moving again. “What the…”was all Tim could get out as he stared at the rigid, bent creatures appearing from the new hole in the ground…. The army of the dead had come for them! Tim sprang into action with no thought leaving the other 3 exposed, a feared for their being, (namely because no one could see what was going on over Tim). But instinct took over… Jamison jumped after Tim toward the now dozens of dark silhouettes appearing from the hole, but lost his footing in the loose dirt and slid beneath Tim toppling Tim to the ground atop Jamison. They lay their briefly, stunned as the dark creatures gathered around them and began to hit them with twisted sticks and metal rods. Jamison and Tim fought valiantly (by covering their faces and curling to the fetal position) against the dark beasts as the beast swung against them, gnashing at their flesh. Eric (much smarter than the two who had blindly jumped into the army of ravaging flesh tearing monsters) ran toward his truck in hopes of attaining a weapon. From the tool box in his truck bed he found just that and returned to the battle wielding an orange fiberglass handled hammer in one hand and a hand full nails in the other. Taking a deep breath and closing his eyes in prayer, he leapt full force forward into the dark, pulsing throng swinging the hammer wildly and throwing the nails as small spikes at the beasts. The creatures, as well as Jamie and Tim, were bewildered and confused as the nails pelted them from above and then fell to the ground (Come on! You can pierce the skin by hand tossing nails at someone!), and for a moment the battle paused as all stopped and stood staring in bewilderment at the man violently swinging a hammer with his eyes closed a good 10 feet from them. Eric had unknowingly jumped in the wrong direction and landed just to the side of the fight. Sadly by the time he opened his eyes, the element of surprise was worn, the battle had ensued, and several creatures fell upon him and overtook him. The 3 battled intensely against the horde of vengeful monsters for what seemed like hours to little or no avail… See blog for rest of story
