Just In Time For Christmas? [ Dec 10, 2017 ]
Well... there's still time left for you to order that last minute gift to give to that Big Head Press fan you love so much. Including if that someone's you. Big Head Press Santa has been busy the last few weeks setting up the Big Head Press Supply Store at Zazzle.com.
From our supply store, you can buy coffee mugs, t-shirts, posters and more,sporting the Big Head Press logo, as well as images from Big Head Press stories like our current running popular slightly weird sci-fi webcomic Quantum Vibe. Many items you can customize their colors. We've stocked the store with a few items to start, and will be adding more over time. Stay tuned for announcements on that.
But the fun part is you can take any of the art work we put up on the zazzle store, and you can apply them to pretty much any product Zazzle will put it on. The list is too long for here. Check it out for yourself. And hurry, only a couple of weeks until Christmas!
The Transcript For This Page
Behind Scarlett are head-shots of a variety of different sorts of arti-folk.
Scarlett: The thing to remember is that arti-folk have free will and are as varied in their strengths, weaknesses, and value-systems as the bio-folk they live among.
Scarlett: Therefore, they are just as capable of good or evil actions as the bio-folk they live among.
Behind Scarlett (who is looking more pensive) are medium-shots of two arti-folk. One looks happy and optimistic; the other has a chain collar around its neck and a big clamp over its head and looks despondent. In this shot we can see the back of Diana's head.
Scarlett: Now, in other worlds, especially those colonized by Huoxingians, arti-folk are still enslaved, their minds 'clamped' to limit their exercise of free will.
Scarlett: Those worlds' rulers must continually struggle to maintain their dominance against various groups at home and abroad seeking to liberate the slaves.
Diana (OP,thought): Where are the groups seeking to liberate enslaved bio-folk from A.I. Dominance in places like my homeworld?
Switch POV back to Diana, looking a bit put out.
Diana (thought): This record is a little too general. Not to mention, blatantly propagandistic. Looks like I'll have to dive deeper into the Redes.
Diana (thought): The problem is, I'm not sure where to go from here. Scan for claims against Hayami's manufacturer? Her emploer? Just how old is she, really? Should I believe that 1052.414 'activation date'?
Medium close-up on Diana, thinking.
Diana (thought): I want to find out what could motivate a free gynoid to go rogue and murder her employer. Despite her faults, Alyss didn't strike me as someone who would inspire a slave revolt.
Diana (thought): Or maybe I'm looking at this from the wrong angle. What would prompt a human to murder someone like Alyss Roaz?
