Stories, comics, and musings created and shared by a raving f***ing lunatic!

I create space aliens.

What am I?
I'm non-partisan & moderate politically--so what's more punk than that in a society where both halves of the population are polarized at political extremes? 

As an artist it's been a lifelong struggle trying to be creative with little real world encouragement.  Some friends and family might say things like "It's a hobby" or "Something on the side" or "So long as you don't quit your day job"...or other not too deeply encouraging things, some subtle, some very direct.  So artists like me have to juggle time and often sacrifice for stability over creativity. 

I work a 40 hour week, that's 40 hours of someone else's time where creativity is limited to the tasks I am paid for--t keeps me from,"living in a van down by the river" to Quote Chris Farley.  What do I do to keep a roof over my head? Nun'ya business...that's just 9 to 5 me.

All my life trying to grasp a decent understanding of human behavior, I created an outside perspective in GFE using the visitors as the inspiration.  They are nothing like us, there may be life throughout the universe, but we still may somehow be unique and that is a disturbing idea to the rest of the known universe.  Little things we take for granted may perplex the rest of the universe for all we know. 

Putting them in a situation where human behavior is contagious like a virus seems an appropriate vehicle to explore human behavior--a view from the outside while fighting not to get too deeply drawn in themselves as the infected.   Because once you've become human, there's no escaping.

They came from far across the galaxy to study our kind, now isolated here & desperate to find a cure for this disease now making them think, feel & act human.
Under quarantine no living beings or artificial intelligences are allowed to travel outside of or into the 2 light year wide zone with the Earth at its center until the issue is resolved.

And it's funny too.

Garbage Roulette-One Loser

Once a year for a 5 dollar pledge I will select one random GFE reader among you and send 10 pounds of rotten trash vacuum sealed to preserve the smell until you open it, think of it as a more fun game of Russian roulette--everybody's a winner! Well, except for the loser of course.  But no one dies right?   

Don't like trash? But still like my work?  Well... encourage your friends to participate, and their friends lowering the odds.  The more people who participate at this single tier the less likely it will be you.

But you say,"Well mister starving artist guy, I could just send you nothing and avoid the risk altogether right?"

Sure, you could do that.  But where's the fun in that?

Okay, okay, I'll throw in a signed thank you doodle/note, but you still have to open the sealed bag of trash to get to it (sealed itself), and I would like you to send me a video of you opening it for my own sadistic enjoyment.
