DDOP 2015 #27: Science Fiction: Where I Learned To Dream

DDOP 2015 27 coverartFrom a very young age, I wasn’t limited by my small town, or my poor surroundings.

All through books — and science fiction was always my most amazing.

ABwaH, the Alien Buddha with a Hat (A Jayne hat, no less!)

If there’s no life elsewhere in space, we are really screwed. And denying it could possibly exist is futile, so I’d rather meet it head on.

 

By the way: go listen to the New York Disco Villains, or the Darth Punk video.

DDOP 2015 23 coverartA very long day, and I only barely scratch the surface. Also, I may not know what day it is..
