In Earth Prime-Time, my friend Mark Thompson was once a rogue theoretical physicist whose work was stolen and used for evil. This caused a breach in the Chronosynclastic Infundibulum separating the many worlds of the greater TV Universe. Mark's televersion now wanders Toobworld hoping to correct what once went wrong, accompanied by his trusty sidekick Michael Finke. (The Finkester is from an alternate TV dimension in which the demon Mr. Sweet holds sway and everyone is under the compulsion to reveal their true natures through the darker, more destructive components to be found in the gift of Music. Michael was able to escape that Toobworld by way of the breach in the vortex and arrived on the main Toobworld where he and Mark soon found each other.)
In this year's latest episode.....
'THE TOOBWORLD CHRONICLES'
"WHO'S A FINKE?"
In their latest adventure, Mark and Michael are staying at the Heriot Silencio near Lake Silencio in Utah. There they meet a time traveler known only as the Doctor (as well as his Companion Bill) and they hit it off immediately. In fact, the Doctor jams with Michael in the hotel bar after hours - the Doctor on electric guitar, and Michael playing an experimental keyboard he had not quite finished building. (This keyboard tapped into the cosmic rhythms of the Chronosynclastic Infundibulum.) However, a freak electrical surcharge causes the keyboard to transfer Michael's consciousness into the Gallifreyan... and vice versa. Neither body can handle the transfer. Mark and Bill have no choice but to commandeer the TARDIS and bring both Michael and the Doctor into the heart of the Vortex to make right what once went wrong.....
What happens next? You'll have to tune in!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MARK THOMPSON!
