Space Package Spookey Ruben's Dizzy Playground (Feat. John McEntire of Tortoise and The Sea and Cake)
This story involves Lincoln Berger-Meele (Spookey), an intergalactic courier on a mission, as he earnestly tries to complete a delivery to the mysterious O.T. Biggs at his rented two-bedroom apartment on Earth. Hounded by a technologically inept, mistrusting boss, Hugo Van Lopez (McEntire), and thwarted by a pirate and queen in a rent-controlled ice palace on a frost planet, Lincoln plays out a drama that would make anyone fear red liquids.
In what might be an homage to the B-movie blue screen bonanza of yesteryear, Spookey has crafted a DIY masterpiece that would make George Lucas say, "Iíve gotta upgrade my operating system."
