"The Museum Space Goo" - Audio Transcript
HOST: Cryptid Critter Crawl presents, The Museum Space Goo.
(Squishy sounds like a boot in mud. Plops and pops. Static with faint hints otherworldly music, like searching through a radio dial for signal on Saturn)
HOST These are the mysterious sounds of the Museum Space Goo.
HOST What is it saying? What is it signaling? Nobody knows, but some do speculate.
PROF CHILDREN It wasn’t long ago that the museum staff didn’t notice any Cryptid activity or artifacts for that matter.
HOST …explains Museum Big Wig Dr. Professor Children, whom this museum is named after.
PROF CHILDREN But everything changed with the appearance of the… Museum Space Goo… Let’s just say, once you’ve seen something as reality-bending as the Goo, well, some things can’t simply be, unseen.
MR SOUNDMAN ( from off mic ) Oh my gosh. It’s behind you Doctor Professor. It’s undulating.
PROF CHILDREN Oh, settle Mr. Soundman. Settle, settle. It’s just Space Goo.
HOST It all began when the museum interns were clearing out the planetarium basement space.
INTERN 1 We like, found like, this big, like metal container thingy.
INTERN 3 Yeah.
INTERN 2 It was cold. To the touch. Cold to the touch.
INTERN 3 YEAH YEAH.
INTERN 2 Then we opened it. The metal thingy.
INTERN 3 Yeah.
INTERN 1 And in there, was like, this like, space goo.
INTERN 3 Yeah. Yeah yeah yeah.
INTERN 1 And then it like…. got out.
INTERN 2 And now… we see it everywhere.
INTERN 3 Yeahhhhhh.
HOST Even Youth Prodigy, Child Scientist, Imani Smarts seems befuddled by the mysterious Museum Space Goo.
IMANI We’ve tried to take samples. But, it’s the darndest thing, there’s no physical trace of it anywhere. It can’t be held in your hands. But still, it’s there. You can see it. It has a real-world impact.
PROF CHILDREN Perhaps this undulating Space Goo is what’s drawing cryptids to the museum. Or maybe it has merely allowed us to notice them. Either way, we now have a choice to make. We can fear these cryptids… or we can welcome them.
HOST After a brief 77-hour all-staff interdepartmental Zoom meeting and team-building challenge ropes exercise, museum social media had this to share.
SOCIAL MEDIA (several monotone voices in unison) It is the museum’s official position to not be afraid of the unknown but to be curious about such unknowingness. Hashtag: Winning.
MR SOUNDMAN (from off mic) Would one of you mind stating that alone. For better audio?
SOCIAL MEDIA No. Museum social media must be social. Hashtag: TogetherForever. Hashtag: LiveLoveDance
PROF CHILDREN We are trying our best. And perhaps. In time. Thanks to our friendly Museum Space Goo, we may no longer think of these Cryptids as a “them”, but instead, we will think of “them”, as an “us”.
MR SOUNDMAN I’s still undulating behind you. So… much... undulation.
PROF CHILDREN Then undulate along. It’s fun and it’s good for the love handles Mr. Soundman. Get jiggly with it.
MR SOUNDMAN I’m jiggling. I’m jiggling.
PROF CHILDREN That’s very good jiggling. Oh, ho, ha, hoh, what good good jiggling this is.
HOST And now that we at the museum have found ourselves face to face with the unknown, we know, there is no going back. Only forward.
Jiggle on space goo - jiggle on.
