The Squirrel and Dave Shea are in a driveway where a large capsule-shaped object is sitting. It has red bands running across it, and a hatchway that is opened with a ramp. The Squirrel is standing on the ramp talking to Dave. Dave appears skeptical about something. It is evening.
Hey, Dave, ready for a week in the time capsule?
Hi, Squirrel. I'll be honest; when you talked about getting away from SXSW Twitter noise, I thought you meant a trip, not... whatever this is.
Don't be a worry wart, come inside!
The two head inside. It's a sterile-looking grey and white space. Large glowing blue lamp-like objects hang from the ceiling. The Squirrel approaches a control panel that he starts fiddling with. Dave is looking at the lights, and still appears to be uneasy.
So... what is this?
It's a cryogenic escape pod. It'll allow us to skip the week of SXSW tweets. We'll fall asleep one moment, and wake the next, just in time for what really matters: An Event Apart Seattle!
Um. Ok. You have tested this, right?
Some time later, the Squirrel emerges from the capsule. The sky is a strange hue of orange. In the distance, a strange floating blue island has several high-tech looking domes on it. A rocket ship is flying past.
Squirrel, did it work?
Well... I have good news... and bad news. SXSW will not be a problem for us!
