  • Show Up — Complete Song — What if The Beatles Stayed Together?

    4,487 views 2 years ago
    Imagine the Beatles didn't break up in 1970. That's the concept of this compelling alternate history music video mashup and the book that inspired it. What if they worked it out?
    http://www.WhatIfBeatles.com | | http://www.AmazonBeatles.com
    This is a world where John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr continued to make music from the 1960s into the 1970s and beyond, where Apple Records in London was still the powerhouse of rock and roll.
    #Beatles #AlternateHistory #PaulMcCartney

    This video is inspired by the just-published Diversion Books novel, ONCE THERE WAS A WAY: WHAT IF THE BEATLES STAYED TOGETHER? Written by Bryce Zabel, the book is the second alternate history novel in the award-winning Breakpoint series.

    Chris Carter, host of Breakfast with The Beatles on Sirius/XM Radio, says, "We know The Beatles let it be, but what if they worked it out instead? Bryce Zabel's new novel gives life to every fan's fantasy. He's created a great adventure full of twists and turns that never were, but might have been."

  • Dark Skies - NBC's Classic UFO Series Play all

    "They're here. They're hostile. And powerful people don't want you to know."

    Created by Bryce Zabel and Brent V. Friedman, "Dark Skies" reigned for one compelling and mind-expanding year as the anchor series on NBC's Thrillogy Saturday night.

    The cult-hit series mixes fact and fiction in a story about an idealistic college graduate who comes to D.C. during JFK's New Frontier, and finds himself sucked into the underworld of Majestic-12, an organization formed to combat a clear and present danger from aliens.

    Out of that vision, Brent and Bryce received the Writers Guild "Created by" credit for "Dark Skies." During its 1995 to 1997 run, it won the Emmy award for its thrilling Main Title sequence, and received a WGA nomination for the pilot episode teleplay.

    These curated clips have been archived by Bryce and Brent, as the series creators, to be "value-added" in the experience.

    Another way to re-experience the series is to dive in for the full journey. In that case, we'd recommend the excellent 2011 DVD edition produced and distributed by Shout Factory! This is something you should definitely own in order to obtain the full immersive storyline. It has everything — alternate versions of the pilot, documentaries, easter eggs. It's one of the best DVD compilations of a series ever produced in the estimation of several of the reviewers.

    (Note: There is no connection between this original, "classic" Dark Skies which we created in 1996, and the movie on the same topic released under the same name in 2013.)

  • Breakpoint - Alternate History Book/TV Series Play all

    Alternate history is neither pure fiction nor history because, done well, it can be both. There are different definitions and different standards depending on who you talk to. However, an alternate history is not a historical novel because those stories accept the facts and live within them. Alternate history moves beyond them and creates new facts, ideally, in a way that makes the history that replaces the narrative we've lived still feel fresh and compelling.

    http://www.WhatIfBeatles.com
    http://www.WhatIfJFK.com
    http://www.AmazonBeatles.com

    Breakpoint is about stories that never were but might have been.

    For me, I like my alt.history real. That is, the change lives in the real world (i.e. the bullet that doesn't hit Kennedy) rather than the fanciful world (i.e. Abraham Lincoln hunting vampires), but people disagree on this. It's my taste, that's all.

    My specialty has been weaving new dramatic stories within the boundaries of real history. My obsession has been two-fold: JFK and UFOs, and I've written a book on each topic. In 1997, I brought them both together in an NBC series, Dark Skies.

    The issue that was hushed up by one generation, made an object of ridicule by another, now deserves to be heard straight up in ours. The truth is pretty simple: at least some of those craft flying around in our skies are from someplace that isn't here, and they're being piloted by somebody who isn't us. Beyond that, it's a lot of speculation. I've written about this dramatically in TV series like NBC's Dark Skies, movies like Syfy's Official Denial, in books like A.D. After Disclosure, and I've lectured about it at conventions. Here are a lot of the videos that I've created and/or collected along the way.
