Welcome to Quinten Television!
We proudly present Quinten's very first effort to produce a television program. Before we get into tonight's feature, let's look a little into the live, in-person, non-internet version.
Here is the story, as told to me by Quinten.
I think it's safe to say that the Q in QTV stands for "Quality" as much as for "Quinten." And that is just at the first glance. When we look a little deeper, we see some remarkable insight into a difficult part of my life with this story. Let's review:
1) Optimus and Ratchet represent Bravery and Curiosity, respectively. The story begins, as did my youth, with bravery dwarfing everything else, including communication with others, represented by the old-fashioned telephone that Quinten claimed was a "mistake".
|Watch closely as I deconstruct your life.|
3) Optimus and Ratchet step out of the Land Bridge. Bravery and Curiosity are well paired at this stage of my life, leaving all that was known behind. The past life is still in the picture, though it has been left behind, like the hum of the engines that echoes in your ears long after disembarking from the plane that has carried you to an exotic new land.
|I love a good story!|
5) Eventually the New World begins to show another face. In the maze of details a pattern begins to emerge. The continents, mountains, rivers and seas that loom so large as they are crossed, take the form of bones, muscles, sinew and skin.
|It's getting a little scary.|
7) Loneliness on a planetary scale. Every question, every stare, every careless collision as you walk down the street is a scream in my face, "Alone!" Every attempt at love is like biting into a beautiful, perfect dinner roll and getting a mouthful of sweet, sticky, red bean paste. Everyone who really knew me, everyone with the same blood in their veins, everyone that made me comfortable just by being there, all far, far away. A distance that I foolishly chose for myself when Bravery and Curiosity stepped into Adventure.
|See how empty your life was before me? Like a paper television set.|
Of course, I was rescued from Planet Lonely when I met Horyon.* But this time left a big impression on me, perhaps enough for a genetic memory to manifest itself in Quinten's latest project. Or maybe Quinten tapped into a story template so universal that we can all find bits of our life in it if we look hard enough. It might even be a piece of The Truth, with two capital Ts.
Maybe I'm reading too much into this. Maybe I'm having too much fun. Maybe some day Quinten will read this and say, "Dad, you're a goofball."
I can live with that. On a side note, Quinten did construct a 3D model for the guys over in CGI to use when they produce his show for the network.
