By Spookey RubenIn our third episode of Exclaim! TV’s Dizzy Playground, the always eccentric Spookey Ruben teams up with very special guest John McEntire (Tortoise, The Sea and Cake) for the odyssey that is "Space Package.”
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, "I’ve gotta upgrade my operating system."
