Comic by Bob Toben
Ramblings by TonyDoug Wright
I believe that this comic by Bob Toben does a great job depicting our first contact with intelligent life. While it will be exciting communicating with another life form, I have a feeling they'll avoid our planet like the plague because we are the hillbillies of the universe. You know I'm right.
This comic is a nice blend of Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Speilberg's Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Read Adams' book and watch Speilberg's movie. Both are classics. I remember my dad taking me to see Close Encounters at the drive-in theater. I'm sure some of you recall the days when you put on your pajamas and your parents took you to the drive-in for a late night movie. Man, those were good times.
For all of you Close Encounters fans, I'll share with a you a clip from the movie where the aliens land and see our lame 70s technology. The mashed potatoes scene is also great. I love this film. Who else likes Close Encounters?
